You've Got Male Models (Universe)

(This is copied from a post I posted on November 13th 2012. I'm placing it here so it can be easily found.)

A few years ago, I made up a trio of characters that I centered my stories on, focusing on their developing relationship, and now these characters have somehow become part of my life. They have become little figments that stick at the corners of my mind, pestering me constantly with what they would be doing. They've become a hit with my friends for some reason or another, and are my primary source of inspiration as were conjured up from the mind of an antisocial teenage girl.
I cringe when I look back and read some of the ridiculous plots I managed to put them in (though I haven't completely lost the ridiculousness. It just...matured?).

Well, I suppose I'll introduce them to you.

My central character is named Chris Cahill. She is highly analytic and logical, which is perfect for her job as a cardiac surgeon. Chris is fairly young, only around 20 (I changed her age a lot before. Gotta figure out how old she should be though so everything fits), and is quite famous in the medical world as a prodigy in the medical world for her outstanding work and young age. Chris's past is revealed as she meets others, especially from characters from her past. The story of You've Got Male Models (YGMM) starts with Chris moving away from her parents to live alone, only when she arrives at the apartment she was hoping to live in as an independent, she realizes the apartment has also been rented out to a couple of guys (that is one love-struck landlord, "She'll fall in love with one of you and it'll be romantic!"). Chris refuses to leave the apartment to them after all the effort she took to finding it.

Now, the boys. Tristan (Tris) Kayle and Jones (Jonesy) Sedlack. They met as teenagers in the foster system (I have the story of the beginning of their camaraderie, I may or may not post) and are aiming to become male models after being scouted off the street. They are absolute opposites of each other. Tristan is happy-go-lucky and a flirt while Jonesy is more quiet and visually guarded. They have stuck together for so many years, they have formed a bond akin to brothers, and they are very protective to not allow anyone too close to them. They managed to get the apartment by fluttering their eyelashes at the landlord (how manipulative!) and they had hoped that their roommate would be easily persuaded to leave with the same technique.

And that is how the story starts!

But, I must make this clear, they are not the only characters I will writing about, as there are an indefinite amount of made up characters in my head! These are just the main characters of my universe in You've Got Male Models (YGMM).

So I hope they amuse you as much as they amuse me!
