Dominic's quiet spring break at home hadn't exactly panned out the way he wanted it to. He'd volunteered to stay in Maryland a couple extra days to help Professor Ledarsky set up her work in a group exhibition in New York (and also get in some primo sucking up time, since he still needed that letter of recommendation). The exhibition had been a bust for Ledarksy -- her work just wasn't what the people at the gallery were into, and that made the professor surly and grouchy. Which made for an uncomfortable drive home from the city.

And then since he'd been in Maryland and at loose ends anyhow, he'd agreed to go to another of Tank's frat parties. Which had been going better than the last one in that he hadn't attempted to give himself alcohol poisoning ... and then he tripped over an edge on the carpet and smacked his hand into a bottle on the way down. The EMT who came to patch him up said the cut went down to his tendons.

So now he was in Kansas City, trying to heat up a can of Spaghetti-Os one-handed while his mom pulled a late shift at work.

He should have gone to Bali.

Bay hadn't had a particularly memorable Wednesday. After First Aid class -- puppies! -- she'd gone to her art class on the mainland, bantered with Tank, and thought about how she'd ask Ledarsky for a letter of recommendation. She'd gotten hit with a bad headache during her trip home; it had been a relief to get back to her dorm room, take a couple painkillers, and fall asleep.

The next morning, Bay didn't wake up. In her place, Dominic Vasquez did.

But then, Dominic would say he'd been there all along.

He leaned out of bed, not bothering with his hearing aids yet, and grabbed his laptop to load up Photoshop. He was still working on tweaking that portfolio to show Ledarsky.

[OOC: Cracked door, open post. Bay is now an AU'd version of herself, Dominic Vasquez, for the duration of the BDE! Click here for more info about him.]

Dominic (or Dom -- he doesn't care, either is fine) is quite a bit like Bay, except for that Y chromosome and chunks of his background. Like Bay, he's an artist, sarcastic, and relatively introverted. The main difference in terms of personality is that Dominic grew up in a much less privileged setting than Bay, and thus is less prone to acting like a spoiled brat. However, like her, he can be quite a drama queen at certain times.

Dominic's parents are Regina Vasquez and Angelo Sorrento. He still shares a birthday with Bay Kennish but, because Bay was a girl and he was a boy, they were never switched.

When Dom was three, he caught meningitis and lost most of his hearing in one ear. Angelo couldn't cope with having a sick kid and took off back to Italy soon after, so effectively Dom was raised by his mom and grandmother in the working class neighborhood of East Riverside. He reconnected with his father during his sophomore year of high school, but they don't speak often.

Dominic's hearing loss isn't as severe as Daphne's is in canon, and he's able to make up for most of the deficit with a hearing aid. But he spent some time at Carlton School for the deaf, coming to Fandom after that school closed down in the middle of his junior year.

And the Kennishes? They're out there, raising Toby and Bay-who-could-have-been-Daphne, with no idea how close they came to their younger child being switched at birth.

I'm assuming Dom will remember being friends with Bay's friends, albeit with some differences -- e.g., I don't think they have the same taste in makeout partners. But if you want to work out a more detailed backstory for Dominic to remember about your character, hit me up in the comments.
