Oliver favors the professorial look, with cardigans, blazers, ties and bow-ties. His blazers, and sometimes even his cardigans, tend to have leather or suede elbow patches and he never looks quite as awkward in his unconventional attire as one expects. When reading, he dons a pair of tortoiseshell glasses, which only futher accentuates the 'nerd' chic.Face Claim:

Oliver's father wasn't a very nice man. Strong, hyper-masculine and convinced that the only right way was his way, he found the fact that his only son was a skinny nerd to be an affront to his ego. He bullied Oliver into trying out for sports teams, called him all manner of names when the boy failed to make the cut, or, worse somehow, made the team but was destined to warm the bench without ever getting a chance to play. Oliver actually liked sports, but his father's insistence that he play
, rather than spectate, ruined his taste for them.
His mother tried to do what she could for her son, but she knew that interfering too much would only make things worse for Oliver. So, instead she played the good cop to her husband's bad cop, buying Oliver his first chemistry set, and taking him to the observatory. She fostered his intellectual pursuits, while his father worked to get the boy to be less of a 'pansy smart ass', and more like himself. Oliver learned to do the bare minimum to keep his father only mildly annoyed with him, since nothing he could do would ever make the man happy, while secretly engaging in the hobbies he loved.
He would have skipped several grades in school, but his father refused to allow him to do so. He thought that skipping him ahead would 'make him too big for his britches', and make his 'smart mouth' even worse. At this point, Oliver knew that all that meant that his father felt intellectually inadequate compared to his son. So, he sucked it up and breezed through his courses, taking on any extra credit he could, and privately taking correspondence courses once he started high school. His mother paid for the classes out of her private bank account, the same one she used to pay for the cello lessons and chess tournaments that Oliver engaged in behind his father's back.
He was well on his way to a Master's in Engineering by the time he graduated Valedictorian, and received his acceptance to CalTech, and MIT. He selected CalTech, because it was further from his father, and finally managed to wrench himself out from under his old man's thumb. He went on to acquire his Doctorate in Chemical Engineering, a Masters in Number Theory, and another in Mathematical Analysis. He worked as a tutor to pay for his room and board, since his scholarships and grants covered the cost of his tuition and materials. The tutoring made him realize that he loved to teach, and so after he finished his other degrees, he acquired his teaching degree, allowing him to begin searching for a position at a private school.
Oliver's love of math and science, the basic logic of the universe, proved difficult to reconcile with the reality of magic when his mother first explained it to him. She was not magically gifted, but her brother was, and she recognized the signs in Oliver when he started going through puberty. It was another thing he had to hide from his father, but he didn't have much trouble with that. While he accepted the fact of his connection to some unknowable and mysterious lineage, for most of his life he prefered to ignore it, rather than explore it.
Until now. He chose the Prince Academy for it's reputation with the magic community, finally deciding he could no longer deny that part of himself. Instead, he's decided to try and learn what he can about sorcerers and familiars, their relationship and magic its self. He hopes that the better he understands it, the less it will conflict with his logical world view.
Oliver was married for six months. He met Tucker while attending an Applied Mathematics conference in Miami, Florida. Tucker wasn't attending the conference, he just happened to be vacationing at the time and the two met in a bar. Oliver was there because a well-meaning, but clueless, colleague decided he needed to get out more, and had abandoned him five minutes after they'd arrived. Tucker found him sitting at the bar, nursing a glass of ginger ale and watching other people have fun. Neither could explain the instant spark of attraction, but they ended up in bed that night.
Tucker moved in with Oliver the next week. And three days later they were married. Oliver had never done anything so wild and rash in his life, but Tucker was spontaneous, exciting and dynamite in bed. Unfortunately, they both learned that sex can not sustain a relationship all on its own. They had nothing in common and while they remained amazing between the sheets, they couldn't spend all their time there. Eventually, Oliver handed Tucker the divorce papers, and they split amicably, agreeing to remain friends. And, they are
still friends, but they have stopped spending time together in person. For some reason, that always leads to sex, and then they start thinking about making another very poor decision.
It's been about a month since the official end of the marriage, and even though it was amicable and the best option, Oliver is still a bit vulnerable. One thing he does miss about the marriage is having someone to sleep beside, not coming home to an empty house and, in general, having a partner.Labels :

HomosexualSexual On's and Offs :
Oliver is a submissive/switch, capable of taking on the dominate role if requested, but prefering to be the submissive in the relationship. He's, likewise, capable of being either a bottom or a top, but prefers to bottom. He is a very adventurous and inventive lover, enjoying the variety that comes from exploring various fantasies and kinks. His only hard and fast limits, at the moment, are vore, gore, scat, abuse and extreme pain/mutilation. He is available for non-con, but please discuss it with me first, and be aware that he may only be feigning
