One of them has her name written on it in pink nail varnish.
Arcana: I - The Magician
Arcana Rank: Rank 1
Suit: Suit of Wands

- enclosed spaces
Personality: Yuno is the ultimate enabler of bad ideas. Her attitude to almost any suggestion has always been 'YES LET'S GO NOW' and she had scarcely ever backed down from a challenge. She is enthusiastic, impulsive and recklessly brave - over the past few years she has tried to learn some restraint but has quite frankly failed miserably. She is optimistic almost to the point of stupidity, and quite often so cheerful it's annoying. She is a peculiar mix of girlyness and tomboyishness; it is hard to find anyone else more enthusiastic about haircare or streetball. Yuno genuinely wants the best for people - unfortunately, she doesn't really understand them, so her attempts to 'break people out of their shells' often result in people being more withdrawn afterwards than before. Due to her lack of seriousness and difficulty concentrating, Yuno holds a great admiration for studious and intelligent people who can do what she can't. She is something of a flirt, and her general 'type' can be described as whoever will panic most on receiving her advances. She can often be petty, selfish and vain, even when it hurts other people, although she is rarely ever deliberately cruel.
- Energiser bunny attitude to anything physical
- Struggles with reading
- Not particularly bright
- Hair-trigger temper
- Prone to illness (read: status effects)
- Lack of focus
History: (longer here fav.me/d6eg3ve )
Yuno grew up in her father's household: her parents divorced so early in her childhood that she could scarcely remember anything else. She had a happy homelife - her father had dedicated his all to her and her brother's (8 years older) happiness. In a way, it worked - she was always happier at home. Her dyslexia made school difficult for her, and she became gradually more frustrated until she abandoned the idea of ever catching up. By the time it was diagnosed, at age 7, she was already leagues behind. Throughout the bulk of her childhood, she was something of a delinquent; resolving to conceal her difficulty reading with a lack of will to do so, to herself and to others. It was an attitude that took a revelation to reverse.
Yuno liked sport. It was something of a surprise, to be honest. She'd always been a rather traditional girly girl. It was perhaps at that moment, the moment that changed her life, that turned everything around, that motivated her to do better in everything she did-
Yuno woke up.
She wanted to be a basketball player.
Like, as a job.
It was a very strange experience for her.
It quickly became apparent that her previous attitude just wasn't going to cut it - she was going to have to do things. All the good 'sporting' schools, with the proper equipment had minimum requirements, requirements that her P.E. scores couldn't support alone. For the first time in her life, Yuno studied. It wasn't even awful.
Higashimori was the goal.
- She remains the only person in her middle school basketball team to have played a league match with fake nails on. She does not recommend the experience.
- Really into gyaru fashion.
- Really, really into gyaru fashion.
- She knows how to handle herself in a street fight. She's unlikely to be able to hold off someone stronger than her indefinitely, but she can be surprisingly vicious.
- She's not a very good singer. She is, however, a very loud singer.
- Seemingly has no sense of shame? It's actually sort of terrifying.
- She picks her shoes based on the amount of damage they can do as a projectile weapon to a mans face.
- Her favourite thing is when people older than her, particularly boys, are shorter than her. She's very easily amused.
- Her tan is normally natural - she will sunbathe at any opportunity
- She plays either point guard or small forward
RP Example: (I assumed the example was supposed to be lit/semi lit? I enjoy chat rps as well, so please tell me if you meant that! This would be several rp entries I think?)
Crouched on the ground outside the classroom, orange stained make up wipes crumpled in her hand, Yuno waited. And waited. And waited. It took fifteen rings for him to answer. It bloody well always did. She'd counted.
'Yuuta!' She hissed. 'What the hell are you playing at?' The voice on the other side replied, unfazed.
'Sorry, I thought you were a call centre-'
'You know that's not what I mean.' There was a pause. 'The heavy make up rule. You read the booklet for me - you should have told me!'
'I-' the voice continued, as calm as it had ever been, 'I forgot.'
Yuno forced the cheer back into her voice. 'Fine! It's okay. You can forget it.' She let out a breath and pressed the button, shoving her phone to the bottom of her bag - oh, but what were the rules about mobiles? This was important, this was her new start, she couldn't afford to break the rules here, she had measured her shoes, she -
'Yuno?' The teacher's voice called, 'You can introduce yourself now.'
She straighted up. She wasn't nervous about this. She could never be nervous about this. This was social stuff. This was her area of expertise. Adopting a carefree smile, she crumpled up the make up wipes and stuffed them in the bin.
'What the hell.' She muttered, 'I'm still pretty.'
Giving a carefully aimed wink at no one in particular, she strode into the classroom and turning on her heels to face the other students, began to speak.
'Yuno Hisakawa!' She chimed, 'I'm from Nishimori, so I guess I'm local? My dad owns a garage there. I hope we can get along!'
She smiled to herself. This - this was the change she wanted.
Heyyy<3 Welcome to the group!
Hahaha, she's so awesome~<3 I really love that she's both such a tomboy and such a girly girl and her wanting to play basketball is just such an awesome touch! I really like her appearance too, the tan skin and light peachy blonde hair is really nice, she looks really cute - I bet she could pull of gyaru fashion really well! You know actually when I read about her I couldn't help thinking our girls would get along really well! XD I would really really love to RP with Yuno sometime for sure<333
Ahh, thank you!! I still don't think it's really sunk in yet people in this group have dds how but I'm so glad I did ;v;
I'm looking forward to rping with you too! I've just got to fix up some icons and I'll be done~
I just read Moeko's app and I really think they would? They're both kinda girly but also sport fanatics and they've got the reformed delinquent past as well
although Moeko's history is heartbreaking ugh ;-; I thought her likes section with 'dainty cakes' being right next to 'steaks' was a pretty good summary XD It's always nice to have someone to relate to.
Not a problem! Hahaha, I know, I know! I felt the same way when I got in, to be honest! But your character is really awesome! I'm glad you made it in any case!
They do have a lot of similarities, don't they? I already kinda want to draw them together, haha.XD
I really like that they're both girly and tomboyish and both have delinquent pasts too, I think it's a really cute touch to Yuno's character and it's really interesting to see how they'll get along.
fshidsasj I'm both glad and sad you think so XDD;; Pffft ahahaha, isn't it? Yuno's likes are more straight-forwardly girlish but there's more to her than meets than eye for sure. Then again sports and cheesy pop music aren't often in the same likes list, as it is!
Eeeee<3 How exciting! Well be sure to let me know when your icons are done because I'm really excited to RP with Yuno honestly she's so amazing<3 Ah! And by the way do you prefer notes or comments? Or like skype or whatever? 'Cause I'm pretty flexible.
I took so long to reply to this ahh orz
My laptop recently started smoking on use occasionally you can probably imagine my reaction XD so I haven't had access to a computer for a while while it got repaired.
Anything's okay with me! The icons are pretty much finished so I should be able to actually participate soon XD If you don't mind me asking, what time are you normally in the chatrooms? I feel a bit weird about just barging in in the middle of someone's rp, especially being kind of late about first turning up there - are people normally okay with that? I rarely ever use my skype but if it suits you I'd be fine with that!
Oh no, not a problem!
WOWWWWWW Okay well no one can blame you for that! Geezy petes, I can only IMAGINE your reaction, that must've been equal parts terrifying and heartbreaking! I'm so sorry to hear that, I hope your laptop is fixed for good now! I can understand completely being late as it is but that's an especially convincing reason.XDD
I'm glad your icons are done, I bet they look lovely! And I'll be looking forward to your participation for sure. XD I have a feeling that Yuno will brighten up a great many RPs! And no I don't mind you asking at all hmmm it's just a little difficult cause timezones... I'm usually on (and this is a vague thing, it's always changing) from like 9/10AM to about like 2PM or so. But it varies, yeah. And I can get what you mean but I think some people do that so it's not too bad. People are usually okay with it. All the same I usually like to go about it formally and I just like ask OOC "can I join in?" or something like that. Just to be sure. And I use skype at times but I'm often bad with skype RPs for some reason, bad timing. I do my best with it though.
Oh by the way--
Did you ever ask for a roomie? 'Cause I didn't and I was wondering ifyouwantedtoroomwithMoe? ;;; Haha, just an idea but I think it could be fun!<3
Oh, it wasn't that bad! After the initial panic of oh my god my laptop's on fire it was more funny than anything - not many people's laptops have that kind of feature XD
On weekdays I'm normally online at around 7/8PM - 12AM (GMT, I'm not sure which timezone you are?) It varies more on weekends/holidays etc
I'd feel too awkward to just join in without asking so I think my problem would be more feeling like I was imposing? Everyone I've talked to so far seems friendly though, so I suppose I don't need to be scared ;v;
Oh I didn't know you could ask who to room with! That sounds like a great idea! I'm sure Yuno would be pleased with that XD
and the dorms are the fanciest things I've ever seen at a non-fee paying school so * 7 *
It just sounds rather scary to me personally! I don't own a laptop mind so I might be just being paranoid but yeah. And hahaha, no no I can't deny it sounds funny - it's gotta be a humorous thing after the fact! XD
GMT, too. Or GMT+1, it's a little on the edge of both but yeah? And it varies day to day with me - weekends are no exception I'm just always a bit off and on sadly. Haha, same here, I greatly admire those with the courage to do that! I understand that feeling myself but as you said everyone's pretty nice so you should be good.
Yeah! XD I wanted to have a roomie I could interact with so I always wanted to ask so I'm kinda thrilled you're okay with that! They'd have the best activities in that room I bet. XD And I'm glad Yuno would be~
GOD AREN'T THEY THOUGHHH SO FANCY I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE IT ACTU-ALLYYYYYY
As much as I like technology, it doesn't seem to like me very much XD everything i touch dies
At least so far, it hasn't happened again, which is a relief, at least!
I'm a bit like that too! It's mostly a combination of school
draining my life force taking up my time and the tumblr vacuum so I'm on pretty sporadically orz
I think you've just given me an excuse to draw them XD
Strikethrough went too far oops -_-;
Wow, I'm really surprised at how much details you've put into developing this character, its amazing! Her personality really makes her feel alive and relative to someone. I also like her design. I'd be surprised if the group didnt let you join o.o
Thank you, I'm really glad to hear that! Character design (written and artwise) is probably my favourite part of art and writing in general, so that it comes off real makes me happy.
overload of awesomeniss!!!
