But that wasn’t all that bad, it was the nightmares that made things awful. Every night she would have horrible dreams, visions of death, and sadness, and pain. Monsters and Aliens were part of it, as anyone would expect, but the part that made them truly scary was the inhumanity of the people in them. In the third grade after a two week long series of dreams featuring what she called the ‘Weeping Angels’, Amelia developed Automatonophobia, the fear of statues. It’s wasn’t serious at first, she was wary and on edge in places that had a lot of them, but it was manage able. As she grew older it got worse. Eventually she was sent to St. Britten’s, where she was diagnosed with Nightmare Disorder, Automantonophobia, and also Agoraphobia, an anxiety disorder.

Catalina Diaz | 21 years old | Psychopath, Sex Addict, Emotional Abuse, Pansexual | Face claim: Naya Rivera | TAKEN
Catalina didn’t think she’d ever have any problems. She was a tough little girl, and if any one messed with her, she hurt first and asked questions later. It helped that she was her daddy’s little princess, and he bought her anything she could want. Neither of her parent were very affectionate, beside with their money, but it never bother Catalina. She had her Abuela, and she cared for her more than anyone in the world. As Catalina grew older, her Abuela started to notice not everything was right with her. She would smile sweetly at people when they were nice to her, or gave her what she wanted, but the slightest thing could anger her. She was manipulative, using flirting to get boys to do things for her, and using her strenght to get girls to listen to her. By the time she reached high school, Catalina was on of the food chart, no one double crossed her, and she could do whatever she wanted and whoever she wanted. At least, she thought she could. Catalina knew from the time she was very young she didn’t care about gender. The boys and girls she had crushes on didn’t differentiate for her; they were people, and she liked them. So when she found a girl her Freshman year of college, she went for it the same way she did everything. And for once she was truly happy with someone. She hadn’t, however, told her Abuela about her taste in partners, and when she brought Elizabeth home, thing went bad. Catalina couldn’t stand the yelling and insults from the one person who’d ever really cared about her, and she blamed Ellie. A few weeks later, when she was over at Ellie’s apartment, she killed her, thinking that would take care of her problems. If Ellie didn’t exist, her Abuela would love her again. but when she told this to her Abuela, she was horrifed and sent Catalina to St. Britten’s.
Catalina’s pretty much in her element here. She finds it easy to seduce the men, and most of the women, here, and she’s a huge fan of the children’s hall. She doesn’t try to scare the kids, but she’s always willing to give the girls ‘help’ with anything they might need. She’s rather intrigued by Felicity, but wont let herself get close to her in any way.
Carmen Arlestson | 21 years old | Adjustment Disorder, PTSD, Severe Anxiety | Face claim: Jennifer Lawrence | TAKEN
