Ro "Technically" Clipson
Ro (technically Clipson) is one of the many amazing TiPsters who grace Duke East Campus. They are all Sorts of queer (transmasc non-binary/genderqueer, pansexual, uses they pronouns) They went to Davidson Term 1 2013, and Duke East Term 1 2014. Though technically their name is Clipson, they prefer, say, anything. To the point where they will suffer through terrible puns, such as "Thorne". Has a fan club -> Rose Fanclub (YO BIRTH NAME DROP WOWEE) (was not consulted about this. It happened at East, apparently.) The fanclub consists of people who have the hots for them, including but not limited to Claudia Smith, Olivia Berry, Lawrence Suba, and Jack Grossman (Titanic).
While at Davidson, Term 1, 2013, they were "that one" who sat in the corner and read les mis all day. Ro and Haylee were roommates, and they always answered the door when members of the Haylee Peters Fanclub came knocking. They were in Rachel Maskin's RC group (Rachel's Rainicorns) and took Neuroscience. Haylee peters and Ro were the closest rommates ever. Ro and Haylee both agreed that sleep was for the weak and basically didn't sleep for three weeks. They stayed up late eating twizzlers and goldfish while talking about their lives and preforming glowstick rituals.
Now, on to East, 2014. They were one of the original members of the Very Super Queer Room at Duke East.
Ro and Claudia Smith were in love and facetimed almost every day (circa 2014). Ro always brought Claudia coffee in the morning and pastries to wake her up like 10 minutes before class started. They were in Symbols and Structures and generally enjoyed discussing giant lesbian orgies, the secret meaning of Alice in Wonderland. "So, naturally..." Likes Gerard Way too much to be healthy, and thoroughly believes Frank Iero is a babe (ADDITION: I AM NO LONGER THAT EMO BUT IM LEAVING THIS IN FOR OLD TIME'S SAKE). Claudia helped Ro dye their hair blue during term with smuggled Manic Panic from hot topic. They only dressed in and did not fail to wear combat boots and black skinny jeans even in 100 degree weather. They are my idol. And is no longer that emo god people change (but seasons don't).
Roomed with Casey, and one time their Ro's grandmother sent them a package that had cheese inside. Literally. It was so weird. It smelled really bad and Lawrence had to take it to the trash can because no one else would even go near it.(You're welcome) (thanks lawr ily) Ew. But they were also sent assorted candies and cookies that were absolutely delicious. Ro had a lot of fandom themed clothing that Claudia always stole when they weren't looking.
Ro is a firm follower of Steveism, also they are a disciple of Maisus. "OH MY MAISUS" is one of their catchphrases. The other I shall not post. They are Olivia Berry's Steve and best friend in the whole wide world and regularly helps her deal with crap. Olivia is Ro's Steve. Steves support each other and basically make the world a better place. A lot of Symbols and Structures class were Steves, namely Thea the Perfect and Brie who is Cheese.
Ro is so awesome and perfect and awesome and generous and sweet and like everything good. They have great taste in music and, well, like everything else. They are made of awesome, and everyone who has ever met them agrees that their existence makes the world better. They are the kind of person that will change you if you meet them. In fact, if you are ever lucky enough to read this, make it your goal, nay, your purpose, to meet them in the flesh. If you ever do see them, do not let the opportunity simply slip away, for you will regret it for eternity. Ro will make you fall in love with them by simply saying, "Hello". They make you want to be better to be able to talk to them. and it kills you if they are mad at you. The world will forever be brighter since they touched the air the day they were born, and our generation is amazingly lucky to actually be here with them. Ro also goes by Niles.
