♢Foxy Stories♢

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Vix on Fri Jun 27, 2014 9:43 am

Why, hello there! I am Little Fox and I've been writing since I was eight (though those stories weren't exactly worthy of a Newberry Medal or anything of the sort) and I've been roleplaying since I was about thirteen. So, I've got seven years under my belt and a vast imagination to share. I really hate doing these introductory things, so I'll go ahead and just make one of those list things.

Posts with detail – I'm positive that this is already quite explanatory on its own, but I will tell you that I don't like it when people nod their heads and say "Oh! I got it!" and end up filling their posts with meaningless bullshit that is repetitive and dull simply to meet any word/paragraph count that I may have provided. I also prefer writers who are able to read my post and pay attention to each detail and respond accordingly. This means that if I throw down three paragraphs, don't give me a one liner. Still, quality over quantity. I'm not asking for a novel or demanding that you throw 4–7 paragrphs out for each of your posts. I'm asking that you take time to put thought into your post and actually read everything that is given to you instead of skimming.

Literacy – I understand that everyone has a few typos every now and again. I know that I certainly do. But please try your best to spellcheck everything and make sure that your grammar is at least decent. I do not want to spend twenty minutes trying to decipher your post because I can't understand what is says because of terrible grammar and spelling. Sometimes I feel like I'm trying to read Metatron's tablets. I do, however make exceptions to grammar when it's how a character talks whether it's slang or simply an uneducated character. That is my only exception. I also do not tolerate "txt tlk" nor do I put up with "L337 5P33K". Please, for the love of all that is holy (or unholy, whatever you're into), write as though you actually paid attention and did well in your high school English and Literature classes.

Smut – I am 20 years old. I do not mind heated situations, provided that my partner is 18+. All of my [main] characters will be 18+ and I do expect at least a few of them to get involved in adult situations and I do not mind that. I do have some exceptions to this. It should be noted that while writing out heated scenes can be fun, the entire story will not revolve around sex. If I begin to feel like every other choice made in the story leads to sex, I'm going to quit right there. I'm not advertising for an erotic novel that could later be turned into a porn so we can reap the royalties. So if you're browsing 1x1s and looking for someone that can help you take the kids to the pool, skedaddle. If you prefer that scenes will fade to black, then I have no issue with that. If you'd prefer writing the nitty-gritty, the RPGateway site rules will be followed: Five posts between each heated scene and said heated scenes will be done as one large post.

Romance – Huge fan of romance! Whether it is the driving force of the story or just something that's there, I don't mind. Romance is part of life. Anyways, the romance between characters could exist starting off with the story. But if a relationship/romance is not specified in the plot, there will be no “BAM! Instant love” unless there's a good reason behind it. Your character feeling loved and needed is not my priority when writing. But I do not require romance in all of my stories. Tales of sorrow, friendship, action, and comedy can be epic without fluff.

Character Development – Who doesn't love developing their character? I know I do. One of my favorite parts of writing is when events of the story force a character to become someone entirely different than what is written on the character sheet. I think that having a character remain exactly the same in every way throughout a story is just plain dull.

Canons and OCs – Quite normally, I'm as against Canons as can be due to experience with writers who know little to nothing about the canon they are playing and do terrible, awful jobs of impersonating them through their writing. I'm usually more of an OC girl myself with Canons tossed in as NPCs for Fandoms. If there is a Canon that you would love to write for and you think you have what it takes, let me know and we'll work it out. BUT. I'm not going to do an OC x Canon pairing where I end up with the Canon so you can model your OC after yourself and write out your romantic fantasy with whatever Canon you're drooling over. If there's a Canon x OC pairing in question, we're going to double and there's going to be a plot.

Pairing – When most people put up 1x1s, they don't really give plots. They just give pairings and I really hate that. Honestly, I do. It seems to always just lead into smut and it irritates me. So you'll actually find small plot summaries on this thread.

Cursing – I'm not against it and I really can't say "Don't go overboard" because if your character is the type to say "Fuck" after every other word, then who am I to say "Change that!"? But, if your character is going to swear, I really hate reading "bull$@*&". Don't use symbols to cover up what they're saying. Just. Don't. It makes me feel as though I'm writing with a child who's scared their parents are going to read what they're writing. If you request that I don't use curse words in my posts or that I ease up on them, I'm going to tell you to go fuck yourself. Not really, but I'll tell you to grow up.

Taboos – They creep me out, personally. I do not and will not ever partake. I make exceptions for Supernatural couples, (so long as the younger one in question is at least 17+ but I don't tend to write romance or smut for characters under 18) but as mentioned before, I don't do taboo. Point blank. I'd make a list, but you already know what it is and I don't want to have my post flagged for the mention. I really don't see the appeal in them and thinking about it just makes me want to vomit. Writing about it cannot be healthy. Again, I'm not here for your sick fantasies.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I suppose that's all that I look for when it comes to writing. TL;DR? I just ask that you are literate, attentive to detail, and have the cajones to tell me whenever you're getting bored or would like the change things up a little bit instead of just tucking tail and vanishing. I do not mind creative criticism and I do appreciate it. I don't mind my partner contributing ideas about the direction of the story. I actually love not having to carry all of the weight myself. What I do not like is when people simply vanish without warning because they got bored or had a writer's block. Not cool. If you can't get ahold of me via PM [my PMs aren't exactly functioning well right now], catch me on Twitter or Skype or e–mail me.

Now. What do I like?

✯✯✯✯Marvel – The entire universe. I do mostly mutant characters, though. I have several, and I do mean several, plot ideas for this one. Do not ask to participate in a Marvel Universe plot if you've never read a single one of the comics or have little to no information regarding the Marvel Universe at all.

✯✯✯Vampire Academy – Surprise! Another Fandom. Love the books. Hate the movie. Anyways. This roleplay would take place in an alternate universe and anyone asking for this setting must have read up to at least Blood Promise. Plot? To be discussed.

✯✯Medieval Fantasy – Who wants to go on an epic quest? I know I do! Looking for lost treasures, hunting for dragons, or tracking down wanted criminals. Stuff that just gets your adrenaline pumping at every turn of the story!

✯✯✯Supernatural – The genre. Vampires, Werewolves, and Faeries! Oh, my! Who doesn't just love a supernatural story? Its all the rave now! Or so I hear. Modern, Medieval, or somewhere in between. I'm also a fan of the TV show, so I just might be talked into it. I have plot or two in mind.

Eh, that's all I've got for now. But I'm open to any suggestions. If you like anything you see, you can comment here, hit me up on Skype, or tweet me. I look forward to writing great stories! I'll be posting more plots here.

That's Amore


Image

It was the mid 80s when the war began.

The Stark's gang had been getting high on their horses and thought they could take on anyone. They were brave and tried to strike a deal with the Pagliarelli family, the most respected of the mafia. They were declined the Pags not wanting anything to do with them because they viewed the small gang as nothing more than common thugs and thieves with no real clue as to what the life they lead meant or how to lead it. None of them were born into the life. Well, that pissed off the brothers. Mostly the younger one. So much to the point that he decided to take what he wanted. He struck a deal with a relatively large gang of Russians known for their excellent arms trade and they raided a Pagliarelli warehouse. But they didn't just raid the warehouse. They killed everyone there. They chopped them up and sent them to the family on the day of a wedding in guise of a large wedding gift.

At first the Pags believed it to be the Russians. The Starks were smart and only took a few of their men and they hid their faces. The Russians denied it and a small war began because they wouldn't give away the Starks. They feared the brothers' wrath more than the Pagliarelli and that only pissed off the Italians even more. It lasted for a few short months before the Pagliarelli easily stamped them out.

And then someone slipped up.

It was seven years ago.

A soldier from the Stark gang was trying to move in on Pagliarelli territory in Queens but was chased off by some of the Pags. He went and got himself drunk at a bar and was found there by the same Pags as before. When told to get lost or get dead he drunkenly replied: "Don't fuck with me. I'm with the Brothers of the Streets. Fuck with me and we'll chop you up and send you back to your little girl's wedding just like we did to your others!"

He was beaten and dragged in for questioning, tortured and interrogated for five days before he cracked. They always cracked in the end. He admitted that the Starks were behind it all and pleaded for them to kill him. So they did. They chopped him up nicely and sent him off in a nice gift basket to the Stark family. And war began that waged on for years to come... Until a deal was made that would change the lives of everyone in the two families.

Image
| Patrick Maximillian Stark | 25 |
Patrick cares about one person in the world. That person's name is Patrick. He is narcissistic on ridiculous levels and it's quite possible that he believes himself to be God's gift to mankind – Especially women. Like his father he enjoys the finer things in life that money can buy and chooses to spend his time as a spoiled brat wasting away his father's money without doing any real work. Nobody really likes taking him out on jobs because he enjoys killing just for the sake of killing and asserting authority and presence. He is to marry Angiluzza Pagliarelli. Every assumed that his cousin Murphy would have to, being the eldest son of the eldest son and a more likely candidate. But Alexander is leader and he is Alexander's eldest son. The kicker? He's fucking Angel's best friend, has been for several months, and doesn't plan on stopping. Not with [Amber], and not with the other women either. The killing part? He killed Angel's mother but he doesn't even really know or care who the woman was to Angel. He is ruthless, sadistic, and immature. He is jealous of his cousin [Tom]. [Tom] is beloved by most everyone who meets him, a physical specimen, cunning, kind... And there is rumor of him being the next to lead the family. [Tom] garners a respect from the Stark gang that Patrick never could.

Image
| [Tom] Stark | 26 |
George's youngest son, [Tom] is clearly different from the rest. But then again, he and his brothers are almost nothing like their uncle and cousins. They were taught to have a sense of honor and some form of a moral compass and [Tom] intends to heed his father's teachings. But much like his father, he cares for his family too much and does nothing while Alexander and his brood do as they please. He's simply a soldier following orders. He saved Angel's life as a child and it didn't take them long to start seeing one another and eventually falling in love as they continued meeting at street races. He was ecstatic to learn that he could be the one to marry her when the families announced a peace and merging through a most unheard of marriage (As Italian families simply did not marry outsiders) but was beyond furious and hurt when it was ruled that Patrick would since his father was the leader. He doesn't want to start a war with the Pagliarellis so there isn't much he can do besides stand back and watch the love of his life slip away.... Right...?

Image
| Angiluzza Pagliarelli | 23 |
Cute. But ruthless. At the center of the whole mess is Angiluzza Pagliarelli. While her heart belongs only to [Tom] she has always been taught that she has to do what is best for the family. If that means marrying Patrick, she has forced herself to allow the engagement to happen. She hasn't even worked up the courage to tell her best friend about her relationship with [Tom] over the years. Only Paolo knows. She's a bit more normal than her siblings, in a sense. Her father has done his best to make sure she retains some bit of her childhood innocence and has sheltered her as much as he could. That hasn't stopped her though. While she knows how things work, she can be a bit naïve at times. One thing is for sure, she hates Patrick's guts and would be much happier to have his head on a pike as a wedding gift than a ring.

Image
| [Amber Heard] | 22 |
Like most of the others working for the Pagliarelli, she's a native of NYC. She was taken in by the Don when she was a child after her parents were killed in a drive by. Since then she has been raised as Angel's sister. She's a bit more of a wild child, hardly the lady type. Perhaps one of the few activities she can truly enjoy with Angel is street racing. That's where she met Patrick. She knew who he was but he just had a charm she couldn't resist and she soon fell into bed with him. Before long, she broke up with Vincenzo, whom she had been dating for some time. She knew Patrick was sleeping with others but she didn't exactly care. She held some notion that she could fix him. She liked to fix broken things. She was truly in love with him and still is. She doesn't want to hurt Angel but part of her resents her best friend for being the one to marry Patrick. She's also angry at Patrick for being so nonchalant. But she refuses to leave him and agrees with his plan to continue seeing one another even after his wedding night.

The Pagliarelli family's involvement in Cosa Nostra dates back to the mid-1800s when it was first formed. Angiluzza's four times great grandfather, Domenick Pagliarelli of Palermo was one of the very first Dons, her family among the first clans. The men and women of the Pagliarelli have always been members of the Cupola, always respected. Their first territory was the Pagliarelli mandamento of Palermo. As their family expanded, so did their territory. It was the early 20s when they decided to take it to a new level. Her great grandfather, Arturo Pagliarelli, decided to take his children and moved with a portion of the family to New York City where they shook things up and began snatching territory like it wasn't nobody's business. Their wealth more than tripled as the Pagliarelli clan operated between Palermo and New York City.

In this family – Family is everything.

♤♡♢♧


Image
| Antonio “Twinkletoes” Pagliarelli | Godfather | 74 |
Antonio is currently the oldest Pagliarelli and the Godfather. He is very old-fashioned like the other men in the family but is known for having a sense of humor. He is very wise and well-respected among many Famiglias. He is very much a family man and encourages all of his remaining descendants to remember that family comes before business, though he does remind them that they must all make sacrifices. Because once you're in...You're in for life. Oh... His name came from his love of ballet.

Image
| DeAngelo “The Animal” Pagliarelli | Don | 48 |
DeAngelo is much like his father. The word loyalty isn't just tattooed to his flesh, but his heart and body and mind and soul as well. He strives to make his father proud as well as the other members of his family and is known for his no-nonsense demeanor. He doesn't take lightly to people hurting his family or slandering them either. People have died for doing so. His kids are his world and he can be a bit overprotective. He has three remaining brothers and one sister as well as three grandchildren and five nephews and two nieces. He has more territory in NYC than any other organized crime circle. The Pagliarelli family compound is located in Queens where he lives with his daughter and a few close members of his Famiglia. Even seven years after his wife's death, he has yet to remarry and is adamant on honoring her memory by remaining a widower and raising their children as she would have.

Image
| Divinia Pagliarelli | Matriarch (Deceased) | 45 (Deceased at 38) |
She was a wonderful woman shot down in her prime just two years after her youngest sons. She was the Matriarch of the Pagliarelli family, the mother of all of DeAngelo's children. She was a very powerful woman that held an air of sophistication and calculation about her and commanded a great deal of respect despite her small size and young appearance. She was always very collected and never panicked, never fearing anything. Sure, she had a criminal record. But who was over twenty, in the mafia, and didn't? But she was never a rat. She was an only child, born into the lifestyle and orphaned by a large war between the Pagliarelli Famiglia and the San Lorenzo Famiglia. Don Antonio took her under his wing and she wound up marrying his youngest.

Image
| DeAngelo “The Ghost” Pagliarelli Jr. | Head Capo | 28 |
Ah, the very eldest of them. Junior doesn't like being called Junior and tends to only answer to Ghost. The only person allowed to call him Gelo is his baby sister. How did he get his name? When he was still just a Soldati for his father, he spent months trying to tell his father that he was ready to be promoted. So his father challenged him: Steal the briefcase of money from the evidence locker in the 108th precinct and don't get caught. So. He did it. His father had a friend who was a police officer (many, really) and as they looked over the video tapes, they watched as he casually walked into the precinct and walked out with the money as if he were invisible. As far as his attitude goes, he's more reserved than his other brothers. He can hold his liquor though he doesn't tend to drink much, as he is a single father. Rosa is his daughter. He owns a mechanic shop out in the Bronx.

Image
| Vincenzo “Pretty Boy” Pagliarelli | Head Capo | 27 |
Don't let his pretty face and vain tendencies to constantly check anything that shows his reflection so he can fix his hair fool you. This young man is just as rough and tumble as the others. Okay, not really. He knows how to hurt people but he got his name from never fighting because he doesn't like to get messy. He only fights when he must. Among his brothers, his ability to command fear and respect is second only to his elder brother. He's very laid back and fun, always ready to have a night out with the guys and bring home a few girls. But he's the type to fall hard and fast for “the perfect girl”, which happens to have been four girls in the past twenty-seven years. When it comes to matters of the heart... Well. He's been called a female before.

Image
| Drago “The Brains” Pagliarelli | Head Capo | 26 |
Out of all his brothers, he is the smartest one. Hence the name. He's very rambunctious and outgoing, and extremely likable. Not your typical nerd. Because he always came off as such a jock, his family didn't always realize just how smart he was until he presented them with his Masters in Mechanical Engineering. Like his brother Vinny, he doesn't like getting his hands dirty. He's much more comfortable running things from behind the scenes, giving directions, and fighting with a gun in his hand. The idea of his fist making contact with someone's face for any reason that isn't personal doesn't appeal to him. With his brother, he brings a lot of money into the family by designing custom cars out of their small shop. Of course, the shop is also a front for a chop shop. But the police don't need to know that.

Image
| Antonio “Big Tony” Pagliarelli | Head Capo | 25 |
Where did his name come from? Well. Why don't you ask the bloggers who caught him on candid camera being thrown out of a hotel room naked? Yeah. Nobody really wants to call him Big Tony because of its origins, but once it hit the internet and the papers – It stuck. Like his brothers, he's a Head Capo with a number of Capo and Soldati beneath him to carry out orders on his father's behalf in his area of Queens. What's he like? A manchild, really. When it comes to business, he's quite serious. But when it comes to everything else, he's just a giant kid with a thing for big butts.

Image
| Paolo “Lucky” Corlione | Angiluzza's Shadow/Bodyguard/Godfather | 46 |
His family has faithfully serviced the Pagliarelli family for generations as Made Men, Soldiers, Capos, Consiglieres, and more. Paolo is currently the Don's right hand man and also Angel's most trusted friend. She had always taken a shine to him and had ordered more than a few deaths before she was 18 when rumors accusing Paolo of being sexually involved with her began to surface. He knows about her involvement with [Tom].

Now, enter the Starks. A young man from Surrey who once joined a gang as a mere teen to support brother after his dream of acting was crushed. It was the crudest form of a gang possible. There were little to no rules and few plans made. A member was always going to jail because loyalty only applied to the leader. Well, George had a better idea. He would take over. It didn't take long and it wasn't hard. He was smarter than the others and the takeover was hardly even hostile. With the exception of having to kill the previous leader. After he took over they began to whip the gang into shape, starting by executing the weak links. They didn't need them around and they couldn't exactly fire them. So it was the only way. When they got rid of the weaklings, they began to recruit stronger and smarter men from the streets and they started to get big. He even brought his brother into the fold. They even struck a few alliances among other more 'big dog" gangs. Mafias. But they stayed away from the Italian mafia. Nobody messed with the Cosa Nostra.

Image
| Alexander Stark | Stand-In Leader | 63 |
Alexander Stark is a ruthless, cunning, and lecherous man. He's lead a life of hard knocks with his elder brother since they were small children. After amassing a certain amount of money and killing his cheating wife, he himself decided to enjoy life. He enjoys killing and fucking and making money. Despite his earlier promise as a teen to make sure his children knew a better life, they've never gotten such fatherly love from him. He believes that all forms of loneliness and depression can be fixed with booze, murder, sex, and money. He used to be some form of kind and sweet but the taste of what life will give those with money and power has driven him mad.

Image
| Olivia, Penelope, & Margaret Stark | 21, 24, & 19 |
The girls know to stay out of the way of the men in the family. Stark family believes that women are to be seen, not heard, and most certainly give no orders when regarding the business. All of the girls have little to no love for their father but most certainly enjoy spending his money on a variety of drugs, alcohol, and expensive things to wear around town. Don't get it twisted though; They're just as brutal and ruthless as their father. They're experts at working behind the scenes and have a habit of knowing just about everything that goes on behind closed doors. They know [Tom] is hiding something. They just don't know what... Yet. They tend to leave their uncle and cousins alone because their uncle was a good father to them where their own wasn't and their cousins have shown a great deal of care for them

Image
| Timothy Stark | 18 |
He's not exactly the brightest crayon in the pack but he makes up for it with that legendary Stark sadism. Another product of his mother's infidelity, Tim has received even less attention and love from Alexander than the man's own children. Still, he's grateful that the man didn't throw him out when he had the chance to. He makes up for it by striving to prove himself in every way possible, only coming off as a serious kiss ass.

Image
| Jonathan Stark | 23 |
While being a product of infidelity, Jon has received much praise from Alex and George. He's a tough young man and and he's sharp as a whip. He's the gentler one of Alexander's children and rather than be directly involved in the violent work, he's working to become a lawyer to help better cover up his family's doings and put their competition behind bars. He's a damn good shot when he needs to be though.

Image
| Harrison Stark | 22 |
The muscle of Alex's brood. While he shares the same father as Patrick and Olivia, he has a different mother. Harrison is not the man you want to push too far. He's a real sweet guy but he lets his anger build up and he has been behind bars and put many people in hospitals when he lets his rage loose upon the world. He's recently been assigned to working mostly on heist jobs to keep himself out of jail and out of the papers.

Image
| George Stark | Founder & Leader | 72 |
Originally from Surrey, he left his family at the age of ten to find work in New York City where he planned to make it big as an actor. But he never did. When times got hard, he refused to give up. He promised Alex that he'd get money to make their life better. So, he joined a gang. By the time he was 16 he had overthrown the leader and renamed the gang, marking the beginning of a new regime. After amassing a good deal of power and influence, enough to make a good income, he brought his younger brother over to run the gang with him. He has recently fallen ill due to heart conditions brought on by the war between the families and remains bedridden.

Image
| Jeremiah Stark | 30 |
He is George's eldest child and is quite clever like his father. He doesn't initially come off as the threatening type but he can be quite vicious and bloodthirsty when he needs to be. Unlike some of the others in his family, he does not revel in bloodshed or violence and will only resort to either if absolutely needed. He prefers to keep things civil and allow his quarry to choose the easy way or the bloody way. He is aware of his younger brother's relationship and finds it to be quite romantic, often encouraging him to follow his heart. He himself lost his own wife to cancer four years ago.

Image
| Murphy Stark | 30 |
The fraternal twin of “Jerry”, Murphy is exactly like his brother, aside from looks. Except that he doesn't mind fighting and bloodshed as much – Still, he doesn't revel in it. He's a gambling man and he's not the one that you want to challenge to any card game. Everyone accuses him of cheating though they've never been able to prove it. Since he was a child he's always held a special love for and fascination with sleight of hand. While Jerry specializes in negotiations and torture, Murph is an expert thief and could rob someone of the clothes they're wearing without them even realizing. Exaggeration, of course.

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Vix on Fri Jun 27, 2014 9:51 am

Pokémon. You've seen the anime and movies. Faithfully waited outside the store for days to buy the games. You've read the manga. But their world is hardly the fantastic place that you've seen growing up... Pokémon have all the rights that humans do, widely recognized as intelligent sentient beings. Capturing wild Pokémon or battling them against their will is a capital offense tantamount to kidnapping and assault and battery, always punished to the full extent of the law. Fifty-two years ago this was made law after the number of Pokémon began to drop drastically due to so many trainers going out to fight and capture wild Pokémon, leaving young Pokémon and eggs unattended to fend for themselves. With the options stop or die given to them by the Legendary Pokémon and those that stood with them, they decided to make deem them as equals. But of course, not everyone truly gives a damn. Across the regions were many criminals. Gangs and solo acts cared little for the laws. But the Crime Syndicates were the worst. It wasn't uncommon for them to have mad scientists in their midst, testing on Pokémon in ways deemed inhumane. Due to the Pokémon Equality Act, not only could wild Pokémon not be harmed but neither could scientists study unwilling or young Pokémon. This left the Pokémon mysterious because not many wanted to be tested. Team Rocket was infamous for forced breeding in hopes of creating the ultimate Pokémon. Team Plasma targeted humans as well in an attempt to cross breed humans and Pokémon. It wasn't long before trainers got into the swing of the new laws and the Official Pokémon League formed. As Pokémon and humans began to bond more closely, the formation of the Pokémon Contest League wasn't too far behind. In the past fifteen years the Pokémon Rangers were reformed after being wiped out during a war between the officials of the Pokémon League and various Crime Syndicates. Pokémon Rangers are much like the police except that rather than focusing on protecting humans as well, they are dedicating their lives to preserving the safety of Pokémon and dealing with those that would harm them, often viewing the marvelous creatures as sacred. Pokémon Breeders are new as well, a small network of less than 1,000 across the globe. They are just as beloved and trusted by Pokémon as the Rangers. Breeders are envied by scientists simply because they can get closer to study Pokémon. It is the Breeders that regulate who gets a Pokémon, putting would-be trainers, scientists, and those simply looking for a family Pokémon through rigorous tests and background checks. But enough about that. Our story lies within the upcoming journey of two prominent figures in society. Two members of the Elite Four and old friends will reunite to save the world.

People say that governments rule the world. Politicians make the world go round. They also say that it's big businesses that control our lives. But they couldn't be more wrong. Because it's the “Special” people that rule the world. Celebrities. Champion fighters. Actors. Dancers. Comedians. Singers. Musicians. Athletes. You see them on the front of every magazine, plastered in all the newspapers, all over the internet, on the television, and their names are always on people's lips. You say I'm wrong? I'm not. People are obsessed with these stars and their personal lives. Fans that will never know the person that they read about every day spend hours obsessing over the latest hookups and breakups, the intricate meaning behind Lady Gaga's outrageous style and Miley's new hair. They rallied up behind Rob, sending out personal condolences when his wife cheated on him and they filed for divorce. These stars have more money than anybody else, getting paid anywhere between twenty and two hundred million dollars for people to watch them play pretend for an hour and a half. Getting twenty-five million dollars just to sit on the bench and watch their team mates win the game. Making thousands per show to stand on stage, sweat, and talk about their funny lives.

But there's more to this than meets the eye.

Many of them were born into this luxurious lifestyle. Others were plucked from humdrum lives as nobodies. Why? Because they were “Special”. Think back to primordial times when words ran rampant of powerful people capable of manipulating the world around them. It was magic, they said. To this day they can't identify where their power originates. They were hailed as gods, their descendants as well. Shortly after the Crusades, a secret organization was formed to ensure that these godly people who were being treated as pariahs and demons were given the respect, power, and wealth they deserved. They evolved over time with the world around it, eventually birthing today's media. Any press was good press with them, though they learned to keep their powers a secret from normal human beings. They were told that the humans were not worthy of witnessing their greatness.

Not every celebrity is a “Special” person. Just the ones with the most press. Because normal humans don't deserve more attention than they do. These people include Criss Angel, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Adam Sandler, and even the members of Metallica. But this society isn't as friendly as they seem. They're killers. Cold-blooded killers. Whether you're taking the spotlight from their deities or threatening to expose them and all that they do – It makes you a target. Marilyn Monroe was one of the greatest actresses of all times, but she was a normal human. When she refused to become an advocate of their cult, the “messengers of the gods” descended upon her and killed her, making her death look like a suicide OD. The same went with Elvis Presley.

The story now? A pair [or group] of talented youngsters have suddenly found themselves with a massive stroke of luck that could only be some sort of miracle. They're in Hollywood! People know their names and their faces. They've even made it on the list of a few of the most exclusive clubs. They'll soon find out the cost of being in the spotlight because wealth and fame don't come free. Their lives are about to become a rollercoaster of crazy.

*Characters can be anything from athletes to directors to multiple threats to chefs. They're just famous for being amazing.

*Will most definitely contain (within site rules) mature themes including drugs, language, and adult situations.

I've got an idea for an X-Men based roleplay. It's called “There's Nothing To Cure”. The plot is about [Character A] who has recently discovered Xavier's Institute for Gifted Youngsters. A place for freaks, so they've heard. With tensions between Homo Sapiens and Homo Sapiens Superior, [Character A] needs somewhere that he/she won't stick out. Somewhere safe. This "Institute for Gifted Youngsters" seems like the only option because a government lab doesn't exactly have that "home sweet home" feel. Upon arriving he/she is greeted by the Staff and introduced to [Character B], his/her guide until he/she gets the hang of things. Not unlike a handful there, [Character A] isn't happy with their current state of being. All his/her life, things were good and made sense. He/she made excellent marks in school, went to church, didn't hassle the parental units too much, had friends. Since their X-gene awakened [x amount of years] ago everything has went downhill. Unable to control their abilities, flunked school, got kicked out, chased down by police and mercenaries. His/her life had become a frightening action movie where death and torture loomed around every corner. He/she views mutations and mutants as a whole as a plague, a punishment, an abomination. Demonic in its very nature. Obviously, [Character B] will be set out to prove [Character A] wrong and end the self-loathing.

*Does not have to be a romance. It's not even really intended to be. Whatever happens will happen.
