Ty Carpenter was a 17 year old student who only thought about having the perfect summer in 1983 California. He'd never put any real consideration into his true self or what he wanted in life [or who he wanted in life] until the day he met Shane Winchester. It wasn't long before Ty realized that his life was about to change quick, and that he would have to face who he really was if he wanted to find true happiness.
