11.18.19: Our intentions tend to be upbeat while the Leo Moon encourages self-expression. It requires less effort to be optimistic while sweet Venus and exuberant Jupiter are conspiring in expansive Sagittarius. But we can court trouble if we forget about the reality of boundaries and common sense as retrograde Mercury forms an anxious alignment with Jupiter. We must reassess the facts or our logic might steer us wrong when planning our next adventures.#sunrise #atlanticocean #northeast #brasil #summer2019 #verao #timelapse #mondaymotivation #herecomesthesun #clouds (at Ponta de Campina Beach)

Born in Fairfield, Connecticut, Carlotta Valeron-Fairfax nee Moore was the youngest of three children with two older brothers. Her parents, both working throughout her whole childhood were loving but removed, hence their children being brought up by a ripple of nannies who came in and out their very large family home regularly. Her father was the president of Airborn Dynamics, a company that is best known for providing weapons to the US military, a job that made the man a lot of money on top of a lot of enemies. Her mother worked as a Chief executive at the same company which was how the two of them actually met, although both were lower ranking at that point.
When she was sixteen Calotta’s oldest brother Charlie enrolled in the navy and soon after the younger brother Trent joined the Amy. It had always been a given that the two boys would become members of the armed forces in one way or another, but that didn’t stop the girl from feeling a loss at them no longer being at home with her anymore. The large house they lived in became even more empty without the two boys, a lot of the day she was the only one home, fuelling a determination in the girl to do something that got her out of the house. Problem was she never actually acted on that feeling, instead just going out to bars with her friends, partying, not to mention spending more than her fair share of her family’s income at the local mall.
One afternoon she was hanging out in the food court with her then boyfriend when a modelling scout spotted the blonde, promising her fame and fortune if she signed up for their agency. Normally this would have been the stuff of lies but this was actually a genuine offer which was how she became a Sports Illustrated model despite her parents protesting. She loved it because it was a chance to travel the world, be given free clothing, spend time on the beach, not to mention everyone around her would tell the woman how stunning she was at all times.
When the CEO of the magazine company came to set one day with his childhood friend David. The woman instantly caught said friend’s eye, swiftly he started putting the moves on her, which the blonde found exciting and flattering. He offered her an elevated quality of life even beyond what she’d had growing up, and the girl was sucked in. Even though he was married at the time he managed to convince Carlotta over the course of a few days that he was in love with her, embarking on what turned out to be an eight year affair the two of them had together. He showered her with gifts, sweet words, flew her all over and even bought the girl her own apartment on the Upper East Side. All to keep her silent, but in her mind it was because he truly did see a future with her.
Carlotta thought she was living in a dream, and it stayed like that for a while until everything became a nightmare one day on a Jamaican beach. Frolicking in the waves with her hair tumbling around her shoulders Carlotta was doing what she did best, but everything around her started to go weird, people were whispering and looking at her with real concern in their eyes. Starting to panic she had no idea what was going on, but all became clear when the producer of the shoot was charged with the job of letting her know that her brother Trent had been caught up in a IED explosion while on an outreach mission and had lost his life at the scene. In the back of her mind she’d always known it was possible for something like this to happen, but still it was an event that rocked her family to the core. Her mother withdrawing into herself becoming a shell, her father blaming himself, and none of them had any idea what was going on with Charlie because he was deployed on an unknown mission. She felt at sea all on her own, which was why she turned to David for the support she needed and he seemed to think the way to placate her was to divorce his wife and propose to the girl. A knee jerk reaction that everyone else could see, but not Colette, who was rapidly becoming the queen of denial.
That was three years ago, they got married on the beach near her hometown and six months ago the couple welcomed their first daughter, Ivy. David Valeron-Fairfax has been cheating on his new wife ever since the two of them said I do and everyone can see it, but she swears down to the ground he has eyes only for her. Even when he goes away for weeks on end, leaving the woman alone with their daughter in the huge house they own. In fact she finds the size of the house when he isn’t home so lonely she has bought her own apartment to stay in during this time, taking Ivy without telling him, she will go on an extended ‘vacation’ for this time. Plugging the holes in her heart with designer shoes, handbags, clothing, and jewels, she looks every inch the happy go lucky socialite that in incredibly aspirational. Attending premiers and events as David’s little trophy she gets to do things others could only dream of, but she’s aware that this is because of his achievements rather than her own. She’s vacuous, but not stupid.

Bradley was born in California and was the youngest of the Rivers children. He had two older sisters that he was very close with— but no relationship was stronger than the one he had with his mother. Being the youngest, and being the little baby boy she’d always dreamed of having, it was no surprise that Bradley became the “favourite” child. His sister’s didn’t mind because they honestly adored their little brother just as much as their mother and father did. He was spoiled rotten. All three children were.
Things changed when Bradley was nine years old. His mother got really sick and passed away months later. Leaving their father to raise the three kids. The death of his wife absolutely destroyed Bradley’s father and rather than being there for his children during that difficult time, he shut himself out for a few months. Barely even saying a word to any of his kids. They were just a reminder of his late wife. Luckily, the eldest daughter was able to pull herself together enough to look after her younger siblings.
Bradley was lost for so many years after his mother’s death and what made it worse was when his father’s behavior changed towards his children. He started resenting all three of them. Always finding reasons to get angry at them, always picking on the little mistakes they made. Eventually, Bradley’s sisters both left for college ( they really didn’t want to leave Bradley with their father alone, but Bradley insisted that he’d be alright. )
Mr. Rivers was a very manipulative man ( Bradley learnt from the best ) and he got inside Bradley’s head so much as he grew up. Made him feel like he was worthless, and that he was just a waste of space in the house they grew up in. This eventually turned Bradley from a sweet, playful, always smiling child….to a very reckless, rebellious teenager. He couldn’t take his anger out on his father, so he took it out on others. Often picking on other people at school, or getting into fights for no reason. Bradley honestly preferred being at school because it got him away from his father. He couldn’t wait to get out.
When it was time for Bradley to go off to college, he left quickly. His father insisted on paying for everything ( something Bradley would later regret ). Bradley finally felt free to do what he wanted. And be who he wanted. He partied until the early hours of the morning, tried all sorts of drugs and alcohol….and just tried to have as much fun as possible. His years in college were some of his best years ever. He kept in constant contact with his two older sisters, who were in different states for college, and only little contact with his father.
He’d made a bit of a name for himself once he’d finished college, and with his photography he managed to secure himself a job with a high profile magazine as well as doing his own photography business on the side. The man was making his own money and was able to get his own place and have his own life. It was through his job that he met Fallon. She’d come in for a photo shoot and he hadn’t been able to take his eyes off her the entire time. The two started dating not too long after that, and it was only then that it became obvious just how much Bradley had taken after his father.
Just like Mr.Rivers had gotten into Bradley’s head, Bradley had gotten into Fallon’s. He was manipulative and reckless with the things he encouraged her to do. Drugs being the main one. His drug addiction rubbed off onto Fallon and he knew deep down that he was a very toxic person in her life. But he loved her, so much….and he couldn’t let her go. Even if he knew he was slowly, but surely destroying her. His breaking point soon came though. When his father got in contact with him again after months of not speaking at all.
Mr.Rivers wanted all the money his son owed him back. Thousands of dollars that Bradley just didn’t have. The stress his father had put him under, along with the damage he was doing to his girlfriend eventually got to him and one night Bradley just packed up all his things and left without a word. Without even a goodbye. It was cowardly, but Fallon was better off without him.
He sold his place and managed to give his father back all the money he owed. With the money he had left, Bradley moved to New York. For a few months he had moved in with one of his sisters, who had made a life of her own away from their father. Something Bradley wanted to do as well. His sisters helped Bradley get back on his feet. They helped him change for the better. For the next few years Bradley remained in New York, working as a photographer. He got his own place, stopped taking drugs as often as he used to ( he still has a drug problem ) and was just a lot more healthier and happier now.
Moving to Seattle had always been something he’d wanted to do. His mother was born and raised in Seattle and always spoke of her time growing up their with her family. It was the main reason why Bradley moved there. He felt like moving to Seattle would help him connect better with his mother. He’s only been living in Seattle for a couple of months now, but it’s already become one of his favourite places.

Niklaus was born in Auckland, NZ. His parents were very well known within the community and owned a popular country club in town. His parents were workaholics who didn’t really spend much time with any of their children. In the public eye, they played happy family, but behind closed doors the kids were basically raised by the staff their parents hired. The nanny, Maria, was a second mother to the five Reign children.
When Niklaus was eleven, his parents made the decision to sell their business in New Zealand and move the family to New York. They started a new business, and with Mr. Reign’s wealth, they were able to make it the success it is today. Mr. Reign only really started spending more time with his kids when they reached the age of sixteen. He realised he’d need someone to take over Reign Industries when he one day retired and so he made sure his children were all prepared for that. Even if it meant pushing them into a career they wanted nothing to do with. After all, none of them wanted to become their parents. Who worked too much and spent so little time with their family.
Niklaus, being the oldest biological son to Mr. and Mrs. Reign was their main focus. They wanted Niklaus to take over the business and Niklaus being the stubborn teenage that he was, started acting out because of the pressure. The stress his parents were putting him under was overwhelming for him and he started looking for ways to get rid of that stress, in all the wrong places. Drugs, alcohol, meaningless sex, stealing for the thrill of it. Anything that helped him deal with the pressure his parents were putting him under.
The only thing that eventually became better than all those bad things, was the girl he fell in love with. His friends all thought he’d end up with someone bad for him, but he ended up finding someone that was way too good for him. Literally. His girlfriend was the “good girl” in school. Amazing grades, studied all the time, always had her head in a book, quiet shy at the beginning. Once they’d fallen in love, there was no going back.
Six months into their relationship, Nik’s girlfriend found out she was pregnant. This changed everything for Niklaus, and his family. His parents were shocked by the news. And his father even tried convincing Niklaus to give the child up for adoption. Mr. Reign wanted nothing to do with his grandchild, or his son for that matter. He couldn’t risk his reputation within New York because his son had knocked up his girlfriend at just eighteen. Niklaus moved out of home after his father made him choose between his life with them, or his child. Obviously Niklaus chose his child. It put a distance between him and his family.
Despite everything, Nik’s mother transferred some money into an account for Niklaus so he could actually get by and raise his child properly. With this money, Niklaus was able to settle down in an apartment in Manhattan, New York. And for the next few years, the couple lived there, and raised their daughter together.
Nik and his girlfriend eventually broke up when they were 23, but remained good friends. He eventually got back on good terms with his parents again, but that didn’t stop Nik and his ex from making the decision to get out of New York together, and raise their daughter somewhere else. The only reason why Niklaus’ parents were happy to help him move was because Niklaus had told them he’d return to New York in future to work alongside his father….something he is still unsure he wants to do.
Niklaus has been living in Seattle for almost five years now. He and his siblings all hold shares to Reign Industries and even though Niklaus doesn’t need to work, he chooses to. He works as a music teacher at a local high school and tries to live his life as normally as possible. He has equal custody of his now ten year old daughter, and loves his life in Seattle. He doesn’t want to go back to New York.
