Have attempted to tidy up my threads a bit and have separated them into three different threads. Fantasy/ Games and Books and Real Life. This is Real Life, though I’ve expanded it to include games with historical aspects that do not have any fantasy feel.

To help your mother around the house. When she was eight. Now shes a beautiful young woman. But you arent the only one with your eye on her, she has half the town vying for her... And now.

Not quite Hannah Montanna
They were tearing up the charts. Dragging even the most strait laced and genre bound music lovers into thier punk rock fan base. Though no one knew who they were. A lead singer with a voice dreams were made of. Though equally on par of that singer as far as fan base was her. The rare natural pinkette wearing a lace mask on guitar. She was beautiful and wild and every male fans guilty pleasure. Though the question on every fans mind... Who are these people? They always appear in masks and change their appearance on stage ( Though she hid her strange locks everyday) and that proved enough to fool the media. How long can they keep this secret though?( In this you can be a fellow band member. A nosey fan. The headliner for a rival band. A reporter or blogger)
Your Brothers Wife.
You and your brother, twins, a rare occurrence in the royal line were born in the forbidden city, you the crown prince and he, the second son.
As the crown prince, you were groomed to one day become the Emperor. Where he was just the second prince, a position of power, but forever under yours. unfortunately this gave him a privilege you didn't have, he got to marry for love, where as your bride, as tradition states, was chosen by your mother, from a slew of eligible woman at the time, and groomed to be your perfect match.
So you married and were expecting a child, when your brother announced his engagement to the adoptive daughter, of one of your father's favourite concubines. Rumour has it that she is the illegitimate child of a high ranking royal figure, but no one has ever been able to prove it.
Then everything changes, a revolt of your father's trusted council, kills him, your mother, your expecting wife and your brother. Months later, the nation still in mourning, you have taken a position of absolute power, when a member of your new council makes a suggestion. A Wedding. To lift the spirits of a kingdom in mourning. Even more ridiculous is the woman they suggest you take as your bride. Your brother's intended fiancée. Though well mannered and lovely, she was raised in the forbidden city as well after all. She was also educated and opinionated, not afraid to put you in your place. Certainly not the kind of woman your mother would have chosen to be your queen. But while arrangements are being made, neither one of you quite able to refuse, you cannot help but keep looking at her. This strange woman who had ensnared your brother's heart so securely that he gave his life to protect her.
In This Day And Age
The pressures of family are immense. Even now, when every person has free will and the right to choose, some children, mostly the children of particularly wealthy families, are pressured into making romantic decisions that they would rather not. Enter a young girl, beautiful and talented and very, very wealthy, a girl who’s parents have enough money in their successful business to ensure she has never wanted for anything. Save for the scholarship bad boy at her school, a genius in his own right, with the unfortunate circumstance of not having been born into wealth and privilege. After successfully graduating high school and moving on to the college of her choice she received rather shocking news from her parents. She was engaged to a young man of privilege that her parents had chosen.
Child Of Nature
She was young, when her parents private plane crashed in the wooded area, the plane was never found, and she was assumed dead. However, a clause in the will stated that she had to be gone for 15 years before the fortune went to the next person to inherit it, her father’s partner, your father. They found her though, a young lady of 19 now, she was nearly wild when they first found her, having been just four when she was isolated. She lacks the social skills that a lady of her position would normally have. Your father wants her money, so he tells you to get close to her, act like you love her, trick her into marrying you, and signing her fortune over. What you and your father don’t bank on. Is nature being such a good teacher.
-For this I picture a lady who is very practical and animalistic in the way of her passions. A deliberate thinker with a very simplistic manor. Hungry for learning of all kinds maybe. I'd need a patient man who is not afraid to loose his temper and won't balk at a temper being lost at him.
Pretty Little Dancer
She’s a dancer, classically trained in ballet and jazz and a splash of ballroom, but when she fails to get a scholarship she was counting on and her savings run out, she loses her apartment and is close to getting kicked out for being late on her tuition payments. Then a friend of hers drags her into your father’s strip club and she ends up subbing for an ill dancer, she’s an instant hit. A pretty little thing, shockingly innocent one that any man would love to corrupt.
Not Your Everyday Thief
It's not often that people get the better of you, but she did. That impudent little thief that managed to slip past all your security only to take several items, that weren't really all that valuable, and steal a kiss just as you had her cornered. A kiss that distracted you long enough for her to escape. You are at a galla weeks later, and on the arm of one of your associates is this lovely little thing. With dark hair, his daughter it seems, as he introduces the two of you, but there’s no need, you've already met. You'd know those startling golden eyes anywhere. What now? What do you do with her secret? (Inspired by Lady Thief, written by Kay Hooper)

Her father is afraid she will fall down the same path her mother had taken with you, what he doesn't know is that if she had her own way, she would have stumbled down that path long before now.

That little medical student with the big doe eyes. You have no idea what he sees in her, she's not his usual type. All of a sudden he's dates and romantic gestures. She's sweet and gentle but the two of you always seem to butt heads and when he move's her in, now its like you can't get rid of her.
