Introduction

Image
There comes a moment in everyone's lives where they are under a moment of stress, whether the person breaks down or the situation becomes too critical for them to handle. The intensity of this moment of stress varies from individual to individual but most individuals reach their breaking point, which is the relative term for a certain level of stress. Everybody has potential to reach their breaking point in life just like eight best friends, which our story is about.

Eight best friends, all of which have been closer than most siblings their entire lives, have been pushed to their limit. But they haven't been pushed to their limits with each other but rather with their parents instead. So, after a meeting among them all and all of them deciding that they want their freedom, they came to the decision that they were going to move out of their parents homes and move into a rather luxurious apartment complex in New York City. Which is an apartment that they all can barely afford. Few of them might be rooming together while one or two might be rooming alone but they all think that nothing can possibly go wrong in their lives now. But will they learn that they aren't the best of friends at all? Can they really live in The Big Apple without their parents? Maybe they will even figure out that they just aren't cut out for living on their own, or in New York City, especially shortly after graduating high school.

They think that they've reached their breaking point with parents, what will happen between these best friends if they've been pushed to their boundaries with each other? Will the rollercoaster known as The Big Apple be too much for their years of friendship?

Rules

RECOGNITION
    First and foremost, I'd like to thank two people, Scar.- for the proofread and help with the plot and To the Moon and Back for the character sheet that's been provided. I thank them both for their kindness.
PLOT
    This roleplay is rather plotless as it will focus much more on character relationships and interactions. There will be events making the roleplay prolong, as well and I will be more than happy to hear any ideas that you may have. This isn't just my story, it is our story so your ideas are appreciated.
PG-13 & MATURE CONTENT
    All RPG's rules apply whenever it comes to certain situations and while I encourage romance, fade to black when the scene becomes too heavy. I do not mind swearing but do not let every word be a swear word. I am certain that there will be some mature themes in the roleplay, again RoleplayGateway's rule apply.
ACTIVITY & COMMITMENT
    Please try your best to be active and committed to the roleplay. I am not asking for a post every single day but a post every three days would be good. I want this roleplay to last for a really long time so your commitment would be greatly appreciated.
COMMUNICATION
    I ask that you communicate not only with me but the other writers in the roleplay, too. I understand that life, school and even work may get in the way sometimes but please let us know something and don't leave anyone hanging for a long period of time. So, please communicate with us via Out of Character thread. If you want to drop the roleplay for whatever reason, I ask that you private message me.
CHARACTER SHEET
    Even though I have provided a sheet in a separate thread, you have creative freedom to use any sheet you wish. Just make sure you have all of the information that I have provided.
CHARACTERS & RELATIONSHIPS
    According to the story, these friends have been friends for a really long time and are closer to each other than most siblings. They all will have some sort of relationship with each other, whether good, neutral or even bad. Speaking of which, a relationship thread will be created. I am only allowing seven other people to join and I am not adding more roles because I want this to be small group.
RESERVATIONS
    Reservations will last for three days and within that time frame, I would like to see a WIP turned in and you will have at least a week to complete your character. I think that's more than enough time for everyone. In order to reserve, please provide me with the name of your face claim and their dialogue code. There is no secret code because I hope that you have read the rules.

Elijah was really thinking to himself that maybe having them moving out might've been a slight bad idea in the moment. But that was something that he was going to keep to himself for the time being. Although, he really liked having his independence and constantly being around his best friends all the time. Elijah had finished packing his belongings in his room and wondered to himself where his roommate was. Or better yet, where the hell everyone else was.

He had hoped to himself that no one generally backed out on him without his knowledge but that wouldn't have been the case, for real. Elijah pulled out his Samsung 6 Plus from his pocket, checking to make sure he doesn't have any missed messages from his friends. Plus, today was move in day and June 1, so they had no choice but to be there and get settled into their room. While pondering on the thought for a moment, he decided to text his friends, just to check in on them to make sure they were okay.


To: Addie ♥
Hey there, Addie. Are you here already? Need to be buzzed in? What's up?

To: Pop Sis ♥
Need help unpacking or carrying boxes, sis? lol


Those were the only two messages that he sent out so far as he went on his internet on the phone to browse some clubs. Just in case they wanted to have a little bit of fun tonight and celebrate being out on their own on the first night. There was a club not too far from their apartment building entitled, Club Delirium, and it was one of the hottest destinations and Elijah knew that they had to hit it up tonight. Well, that is if everyone was definitely up for it.

With a sigh, Elijah laid back first onto his bed and waited for some replies to come through or for someone to text him first. But for now, he guessed that he'd just lay there and stare up at his ceiling and constantly check his phone for messages.

Dialogue: #E4287C
Location: 2B Kitchen
╚═══════════════╝
The clock had just turned over from AM to PM as Lizzie placed the final of her five pillows onto her freshly made bed. The room around her was devoid of any boxes, after she had arrived at 6:00am that morning to begin unloading and unpacking into her new place. Poor Simon had been drug along for the ride, but as she finally looked up from her daze of OCD organizing, she realized she had no idea where her roommate had gone off to. A flash of guilt reddens her cheeks and she smooths the palm of her hands against the black leggings over her thighs.

She had unpacked her kitchen utensils first, and stocked the fridge after her 8:00am run around the neighborhood to get a feel for what jogging route would be best for her and Elijah in the mornings. Wrapped in bandages, her feet pad across the floor toward the fridge. Chocolate brown eyes glance over to the clock, ensuring that it was noon and an acceptable time to text the group. She pulls open the group chat with one hand as the other opens the fridge to pull out the eggs.

To: New York or Bust
Hey, guys! Everyone make it in okay?

Short. Sweet. To the point.

Her iPhone 7+ is dropped lightly onto the counter as she sets about scrambling the eggs. It's not more than a minute before she reached over for it again, between stirring the eggs, to turn on one of her playlists and to text Simon.

Si-Fy
I'm making eggs! ❤ Where are you?

Stand By Me played on a harp comes from the speakers of her iPhone just moments after the text chimes it's indication of being sent. Content, a sigh lifts her lips into a smile and she turns back to the eggs, swaying just slightly to the music as she cooks.

"I wish it didn't have to be like this," Emily murmured, tightening her arms around Poppy. Poppy didn't answer for a second, leaning into the embrace and inhaling Emily's perfume. But Emily was moving away for college soon- she was on an early start with the sports scholarship she was on. And of course, it was the other side of the country to Emily. "Yeah. But... we'll be okay." Poppy wasn't sure who she was trying to comfort, herself or Emily. "Just promise me you won't mope. This is a great opportunity, okay? Grab it with both hands. It just... wasn't meant to be, right?" Emily said, with a smile they both knew was fake.

And after one last kiss, she left. As far as anyone else knew, she'd just been helping Poppy move in. Poppy took a deep breath, wiped her eyes, and looked around her room. It was nice. She had a decent view, and it was cosy. It was already starting to feel like home. She took another deep breath, checked her reflection, and went out into the kitchen.

"Hey, Lizzie. Didn't take you long to take control of the kitchen," Poppy teased lightly, with a grin. She sat down at their little table. She glanced at her phone, and realised she had a couple of texts. She hadn't even felt the vibrations of the notifications, she'd been so focused on making the most of the little time they'd had together. She typed out a couple of replies.

To: Elijah
All moved in already bro, but thanks for the offer xx


Usually, she might have cracked a joke in there as well, but right then, she just didn't feel like it. "How's your room shaping up?" She asked Lizzie, putting her phone flat on the table.

Dani was sitting in a taxi being driven by a foreign guy whom she only assumed was from India when her phone went off, signaling that someone posted in their group chat. Lizzie was wondering if everyone got in okay.

To: New York and Bust
I'm here. Just pulling up in a taxi. Would you mind coming down to help me bring my things up?

Dani knew not everyone was there yet, which wasn't surprising. She just hoped that whoever was already at the apartment building would come down and help her grab her things because the longer the man sat there in front of the apartments, the more money she would have to pay him as the meter went on.

Dani climbed out of the taxi just as he popped the trunk open for her. Dani smiled a bit and glanced back and forth down the streets, she was finally in New York, her new home. After taking in her surroundings for a brief couple of seconds, she turned on her heels to the back of the taxi and began pulling her things out of the trunk one by one. Dani tried to grab as much as she could carry because she didn't want to make more than one trip if she could help it.

Outfit Choice: Rock Rebel




Caila ruffled her hair in the mirror of her bathroom and eagerly eyed the box of pale pink hair dye on the counter. New move new her right? She ran her black painted nails through the damp blonde locks around her shoulder and chewed on her lip in thought.

Her phone chirped alerting her of a text, which brought her from her thoughts. She picked up the phone, seeing the notification was from the group she opened the message and swiftly would respond.

I'm already here in my room, left my prison as soon as i could.

She left the dye alone for now and plopped down on the bed, closing her eyes taking in the sweet silence of her own room. There was no one to yell at her. The place smelled fresh and clean. It was a beautiful new start, a refresher to life, there were no bad memories here to haunt her, Caila's own little safe spot from the world.

Her phone chirped again and she looked at the group message and would type a prompt response

It's heaven inside Dani!! I'll help you get situated :)

She jumped off the bed, and would proceed to exit her place, and running downstairs, she flashed a bright smile and went to reach for a bag from Dani, softy saying, "Glad ya could make it."

She shuffled her feet awkwardly as she looked around at the busy lifestyle of The Big Apple.

Boy. It felt lovely to be away from his family, but still a small part of him felt guilty for the whole leaving thing. But his siblings knew if they needed him, they could reach him on his phone. After announcing he was leaving, Adrian used some of his saved up money to buy himself an iPhone 6, and only gave the number to his siblings for emergencies. He clutched the necklace his siblings got for him as going away gift. He checked his phone receiving an onslaught of messages from the New York or bust chat.

To: New York or Bust
yo, i'm at starbux any1 want anything?

After arriving a few hours earlier, Adrian dropped his bags off in the room he knew he'd be sharing with Eli, and headed to the local Starbucks so he could talk to one of the managers about working there part-time. He was gonna work at one of the nightclubs down in New York, but during the day, he wanted to get something done. After a short interview with the manager, she told Adrian he could start the following Tuesday, and he was excited. He would sit there with an interest in the area, he was excited and nervous at the same time, so he sent a message to Eli.

To: Eli
bruh, i'm so nervous help plx

Amory . Eldridge - Location: Just Arriving - Dialogue:#000080 - Outfit



Well here he was. Almost fifty hours of driving over eight states with some interesting stops along the way and Amory was finally entering New York City. When they all decided to move in together Amory was sportive of the idea but now with hindsight being twenty twenty, perhaps their choice of location was not the most practical. Never the less here they were, new city, new home, starting a new life. As a bonus all of them would be sharing this new start and it's adventures together. Still didn't stop Amory from having restless leg syndrome from the two day plus drive.

All that aside Amory didn't regret moving with his friends, though his decision to drive here without a co-driver was one of those mental blunders he had on occasion. Driving out of the Holland Tunnel Amory was quite impressed with New York. Sure he had seen many picture of it but seeing the city in person with it's towering buildings, bustling streets and it's general atmosphere were quite a far cry from what you saw from a second hand medium. Especially all of the unclothed, tail gating, cut you off the road, blaring their horns drivers!

As he was driving his noticed he was low on gas and pulled into a shell gas station to fill up. After paying at the pump and sitting in the driver seat waiting his Samsung Galaxy S5 alerted him to someone talking in the chat. Amory opened the chatroom and found several messages from the group. Chuckling at some of the responses he typed up a response to each one.

To: New York or Bust

Just pulled into the city ten minutes ago. All is well except for some restless leg syndrome.


My apologies for not being there to help everyone. I'll make it up when I get there.


After sending the message Amory paused and looked into his SUV, a 2017 Toyota Highlander. All of his more important belongings were loaded in the SUV and everything else had been shipped ahead. Though the SUV was loaded with his personal things and some cross country driving essentals he had some room to spare. Amory opened the app again and messaged all of the group,

To: New York or Bust

Stopped to get some gas, anyone want me to pick up anything along the way?

As Dani continued to fill her arms with as much as she could possibly carry, she heard her phone going off in her back pocket, signaling that she was getting messages from the group.
She couldn't grab her phone to read the messages, so she didn't get a chance to read them.

Just as she turned to begin walking into the building, Caila joined her, grabbing a couple bags from Dani. "Glad ya could make it."

Dani just smiled before stating, "Of course. I wouldn't miss it for the world." Thankfully between the two of them she knew there wouldn't have to be a second trip. Once all of her things were out of the trunk, she closed it and signaled for the driver to get going.

The brunette began to walk into the building once more. "Are you already unpacked and situated?" she questioned. If she wasn't she would offer to help Caila out in return. After all, Dani had a lot of stuff and knew for sure it was slightly straining to help carry everything upstairs.

When they got to the stairs, she felt her stomach rumble in hunger. "Definitely need something to eat. Wanna go get something with me tonight if no one else wants to go out?" she questioned, hoping that she would go along, even if no one else wanted to. Dani didn't care where it was they got food from as long as she ate something.

Before leaving her parents's home, she wasn't allowed to eat anything or take anything with her because of her father. Instead of making things worse than they already were during the move, she decided to just accept what was going on and chose to eat later.

Elijah's fingers tapped on the back of his phone as he waited for people, more like Adrian and Poppy, to reply to his messages. His eyes wandered around the ceiling that he was currently staring up towards and his phone chimed, which caused him to grasp his phone and look at what scrolled across the screen. It was a group message from Lizzie, making sure everyone was making it okay.


From: Liz
Hey, guys! Everyone make it in okay?


Elijah started to type his own reply but others seemingly started to flow in. His phone chimed multiple times, many from the group chat but ones from Adrian and Poppy, as well. He stopped typing his reply in the group chat to read Poppy's text first and seeing that she had already settled into her apartment. Elijah did not even see a reason to reply but made note to stop by there later. Adrian's message made him raise a brow as he started to think the worst instantly, even though he's not that type of person, he really could not help this feeling though.


From: Addie ♥
bruh, i'm so nervous help plx

To: Addie ♥
What's up, bruh? Where are you? By the way, bring me a bagel with cream cheese!


Elijah sent the message with a worried expression then opened the group message to read the other messages again, finally replying to the message for himself. But raised up from the bed first and stood up, thumbs tapping at the screen as he turned heel to starting towards the exit from his apartment.


To: New York or Bust
Glad to hear from everyone! We did it, guys! lol

No, thanks, Amory. Just get here safely.


He had sent the message then walked out of his apartment then wandered around the halls now. Elijah really hoped to bump into someone but instead saw Danica and Caila on the stairs and greeted them. "Hello there, ladies." His eyes scanned towards them both, seeing that Caila was helping Danica with her belongings. "Anyway I can help?" Elijah proceeded to ask, not moving until he received an answer. "I was also thinking that we all can go out tonight and celebrate our first night in New York." Elijah mentioned but did not really ask what they thought though the tone of the question was quite obvious that he was looking for their opinions.
