Introduction

The city of Hollywood has brought to life many dreams and visions from its people. In an instant, you can be transformed into a star. One day you may walk alone, while the next day you are wishing you could be alone. The city itself has an interesting dual personality, in which dreams are both achieved and crushed. Unforgiving and cruel, Hollywood and its people have turned away thousands for every one person they lift into sky to be amongst the stars. The chances of success are phenomenally low. So, why are people drawn here? Why do people try their luck, give up everything they have, just to have a chance? Maybe it is the inherent optimism of the human race. Maybe they were never giving up much in the first place. Maybe they already have connections. Everyone has their own reasons for coming here, some more dark than others.

For every hopeful soul that comes to this sunny city on their own, another person perfectly fit for them finds their way as well. An aspiring director cannot create a work of art without an actor to play the part. Through one way or another, people find themselves drawn together so they get exactly what they have been looking for.

You have been invited to a party filled with the biggest talents and their representatives. It feels like sheer luck that you just happened to know someone who was going. Amongst the confident celebrities, you each find one another and share similarities in the struggles with your new life in Hollywood as a large group. You know that between the six of you, you can all help each other out. However, there is specifically one person that seems to be just what you have been looking for…




”Everything I learned, I learned from the movies.”
-Audrey Hepburn





Image

You came to Hollywood to pursue your dreams of becoming an actor. Of course, finding roles is nearly impossible, and half the time you’re stuck doing commercials for consumer crap. You just want to do something meaningful for once...

[Face Claim: Ewan McGregor]




Image Against every instinct, you took a leap and came to Hollywood to pursue your dreams of being a big time movie director. You want to write and create stories with every ounce of your being. Unfortunately, no one can see the image in your head. You just need to find someone willing to play your roles...

[Face Claim: Matthew Gray Gubler]




“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”
-Bob Marley





Image

No one cares about music where you’re from, and you knew that Hollywood would definitely see your passion and heart for your instrument. You don’t have a voice, but your skills are worthy of performances at the biggest clubs in the city. At least, that’s what you tell yourself. Almost every club has turned you down. You need to find a place that’s just starting up…

[Face Claim:]




Image

A passion for music of all types has inspired you to come to Hollywood and open up your own club so you could share your love with everyone in the city. There’s a million clubs though, and somehow, yours has to stand out from the rest of them if you want to be great. You just need to find a musician good enough to push your start up into a success…

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
-Maya Angelou





Image

You have been told that your voice belongs in Hollywood amongst the stars, and so you came here. You sing mostly covers, and can find small jobs here and there, but you don’t want to just perform at weddings and fairs for your whole life. You want to be someone. But you can’t find your own words. You just need someone who has a gift with words to write you that hit song...

[Reserved By: TheNewb08]
[Face Claim: Emeraude Toubia]




Image

You can’t find inspiration in your current space, and a change of scenery is just what you needed. Hollywood called to you. Your poetry and songwriting is inspired, though there has never been the chance for your work to be sung. You know that if you could just find the perfect voice, your words might finally be out for the world to hear...

1. Any additional roles may be added. I only ask that if you are adding an additional role, you either find another person to be your other half, OR speak to the groups already made and fit yourself in there. The match ups rely on their roleplayers to speak to one another and coordinate on what the relationship will be like, whether romantic, strained, or a friendship. Please coordinate with your partner, whether that is in the forum, or by private message!
2. Please make reservations for the characters. You may choose the gender of the role you decide on.
3. I would appreciate posts with a bit of thought and care put into them. If it is simple dialogue, then of course you may shorten your posts. But don’t be afraid to describe feelings of your character, thoughts, etc.
4. The character form provided only includes basic information that I need. You may add all you want to it, including more sections, images, colours, etc.
5. Please inform me of any questions or concerns you may have. I hope for this to be a success!

I apologize everyone for my lack of activity! The past few days have been nothing but work and travel. I am home now, with a bunch of free time. I will be doing my character today, updating the settings on the roleplay, and doing a bit more looking over everyone's characters. :)
