Meet Travis Jones

Next segment of the little character thing. Since I figured I've already highlighted Benvolio before that Travis deserved some attention. So here he is:


my imagination for him is Hunter
Parrish. Soooo handsome, isn't he?
Name: Travis Jones

Age: 19

DOB: March 10th 1992

Birthplace: Saint George Utah U.S.A.

Major: Communications

Hobbies: Building things, working with his hands, hanging with Audrey, dancing, playing basketball, going for a drive, singing, choir, reading

One Wish: For Audrey to notice his feelings

About Travis: Travis is Audrey's long time friend. They've known each other since they were preschool age. Travis is a bit of a shy guy, not great with girls though certainly a good looking guy. He enjoys choir and singing though he has no interest in pursuing music as a career. He's had a thing for Audrey for years but finally decides to come out of his shell and tell her on their trip to Verona as he knows that in a few months he'll have to leave on his mission for two years to Verona Italy. Travis is the sort of guy every girl needs as a friend. He can joke with you when you need a laugh, talk with you when you need to talk, and he always listens, but he just doesn't receive those things back. He gives but never gets back, and sometimes that makes him anxious and impatient, especially with Audrey. Though in the end he accepts being her friend and decides that he'll figure things out after his mission, he still wasn't 100% supportive of her and Benvolio, which doesn't really matter since he left anyway. He is very protective of her which makes her think of him as an older brother. This just tends to be his problem with girls. He gives, but just doesn't receive and BAM. He's just a friend. Poor Travis.

Random facts about Travis:
-He chose to go to community college this year so he could stay near Audrey, but he never told her that.

-Travis' name is based on two leaders I met in church, but his personality is actually closer to my own (though not completel)

-He has never admitted this aloud but he actually doesn't like Twizzlers. Don't tell Audrey - she might have a heart attack.

-Ironically Travis played Benvolio in Romeo and Juliet, and even performed at the Shakespeare Fesitval. He was even offered a chance to perform at BYU (oh the irony) but declined because he was planning to go on his mission as soon as the festival ended. He only stayed in the play because his uncle kept loosing cast mates and he promised to help pay for his mission.

-Travis never liked Annabelle. In fact he for years he would vocally display his dislike of her to Audrey until he got older and realized he was wasting his time. That and Audrey always found a way to shut him up because she thought gossip was unattractive. He never gossiped again.

- Despite his love of choir Travis hates musicals. He thinks they're corny and weird. Because of this he never participated in their theater groups musicals, though he helped with production like Audrey (she's a horrible singer). Despite his hatred of musicals, he always loved musical season because he got to spend more time with her.

-Obviously he is quite love sick for Audrey but Travis had a lot of offers for dates. He was quite popular with the ladies, actually, even though he didn't think he was. However, once he got his mission call he refused to date anyone. It makes you wonder how he does AFTER his mission.

-Travis never kissed a girl before he kissed Audrey. So he was pretty happy with himself, until he realized what he did to Benvolio. For years he was in wrestling and did boxing, so he's a pretty good fighter. But that was when he was in middle school, and now he's just a skinny choir boy, sooo that isn't as true anymore.

And that's it for Travis. I don't think I'll do Benvolio because I've already talked about him in my post about the Many Faces of Benvolio and such. Sooo.... Maybe I'll move on to a different story. Deception? Vintage Catalyst? (Wouldn't I just love to talk about Reeve and Westley... hehehe!) I don't know. We'll see.

Until then, tootles!
