Detailed Bio of the Character:
It’s no secret that Sam’s family weren’t always particularly well off so when graduation came around, he became determined to make something of himself in order to be able to make enough money so that they could finally have a stable home. While many of his friends moved away, Sam stuck around in Lima where he had a variety of jobs and also played his guitar in a couple of venues to earn some extra cash before he could move to New York to attend CUNY and studied music. Although he realizes that it’s a long-shot, he’s hoping that one day he’ll get picked up by a big time producer and be signed onto a label but in the end, he only wants to make his family proud of him no matter what he ends up doing. Generally though, Sam’s still the same dorky, Na’vi speaking, Matthew McConaughey impressionist he was in high school.
Preferred Ships: Fabrevans, Sam/chemistry, Sam/Doritos~
Anti Ships: Sam/male, anything forced.
Writing sample: I’ve never actually written for Sam so I hope this is okay! :)

A sigh escaped Sam’s lips as the whining protests of his younger siblings met his ears, making a point not to look at them directly while he went about tucking them into bed for the night. He knew that even just one look into those puppy dog eyes of theirs would break his resolve and he’d already let them stay up way past their bedtime as it was. “No buts,” he shushed them, gently nudging Stacy to lay back down, pulling the covers up around her while she clutched onto her cuddly rabbit. “It’s a weekday, you guys have school in the morning. I’ll let you stay up extra late this weekend, deal?” He tagged on a beat later, hoping that his attempts to compromise would get them to settle down.
“And we can watch Avatar again?”
A gentle laugh left him then, nodding his head fondly at the two of them as they finally laid down, Stevie taking the top bunk that night. “Count on it, but only if you go to sleep right now,” Sam answered them and had to hold back another laugh as they pretended to fall asleep within an instant, both squeezing their eyes shut. Uttering goodnight to the two of them, he turned to leave the room and flipped the switch on his way out, shrouding the room in darkness though made sure to leave the bedroom door ajar so that light could filter in from the hallway. With graduation fast approaching, he needed to devote as much time as he had to studying and he struggled with that enough as it was due to his dyslexia. The last thing he needed was Stacy disrupting him because of nightmares attributed to her fear of the dark and the supposed monsters that hid in the shadows beneath her bed.
Making his way back towards their living room, Sam scooped up his discarded packet of Doritos and threw a couple into his mouth, munching away at them as he collected his books from the table where he made himself comfortable. Flipping open his math book, his brow immediately furrowed and already there was a dull throbbing in his temples as he attempted to make sense of the equations before him as they seemingly squiggled their way across the pages. Only the sounds of the pages turning and the occasional rustling of the packet broke the silence that fell and if not for the determination that egged him on, he might have pushed the book away out of frustration but as it was, he pushed himself to continue. He decided that, as he had done with his siblings, he would make himself a compromise; if he could get through at least five pages then he’d allow himself a short break in which he himself could watch the small TV. After all, Prank’d was on soon and it was Bieber’s episode. There was no way he could miss it.
Anything else?: Monkeys! XD
