  • Who uses all the hot water: Garrett he likes to take long hot showers after comes home from his daily run and swim.
  • Most trivial thing they fight over: They’re both pretty easy going so they don’t fuss over the little stuff. They do fight over Verity’s need to keep secrets from him but that’s not a trivial concern and causes major problems in their relationship.

  • Who remembers anniversaries:  Garrett does. Verity has a tendency to forget things when she’s working a case.

  • How often do they fight: It’s becoming more often then they would like. It all goes to the case Verity is working on and the secrets she’s been keeping. 
  • What do they do when they’re away from each other: Garrett exercises and tries to figure out a way to get Verity over her obsession with the case she can’t let go of. It’s hard because he know’s why she’s obsessed with it but he worries it’ll tear them apart. Verity spends most if not all of her time working the case she’s obsessed with.

  • What would they get each other for gifts: If they could afford it Verity would get Garrett a home gym so he wouldn’t have to go out for his daily run.

  • Who kissed who first: Technically it was Verity when Garrett was unconscious in the hospital.
  • Who made the first move: Garrett did but he was a senior in high school and Verity squashed his attempts because he was younger than her. It wasn’t until after he was almost killed that she realized her feelings for him and that age didn’t matter. Which was also the start of her obsession.

  • A head canon:  They both love each other but until a certain bad guy is caught they will not be able to move forward in their relationship.


10. Does your character feel more comfortable with more clothing, or with less clothing?

He’s a swimmer so the fewer clothes he has on the better. It allows him to glide through the water quicker and safer. He hasn’t ever gone skinny dipping though. He isn’t adverse to the idea he just hasn’t had the opportunity or the right person to do it with.

18. Is your character more likely to admire wisdom, or ambition in others?

Ambition is fine but it’s not something he feels is absolutely necessary. Wisdom is more important. It can keep a person from leaping into action without thinking. Sometimes he wonders if Verity lacks wisdom as she continues her relentless search to find Kara. He feels it’s an unnecessary risk and one she hasn’t thought through. It’s the one thing that causes friction in their relationship.


1. He disliked school. Until high school he put minimal effort into studying despite being capable of doing the work.

2. Despite his lackadaisical attitude towards academics he was looking forward to graduation. He missed it due to being in the hospital.

3. He loves the water. He has been on the swim team since middle school and has led his team into winning many swim competitions.

4. Instead of going to college he was planning on joining the coast guards and becoming part of the search and rescue unit.

5. He’s the grandson of my all time favorite sim Gene Bennett.
