Hey guys. Try to get your relationships squared away when you can! I'm going to open up the IC within the hour, and then everyone can start posting. Just a few things to note before we start!

I included it on the front page, but here's a basic layout of the basement. It's nothing fancy. The beds would likely be literally just mattresses, or if they could afford to buy or garbage pick a twin sized bed frame, and actual bed. Nothing lavish, obviously, since there's not a much of space. It's basically two rooms and a bathroom (no shower), with the second room being smaller and not actually blocked off from the big room, since there's no door, and it's just an open space to get in. I figured Brooklyn and Nick would've claimed that area because it's a little privater. He probably would have insisted that Lateefah and Holly have it when they came in, but Brooklyn would have shot that down really quick xD. I figured there could be a little table and a couple of old chairs that Finn was probably getting rid of from the restaurant, but it isn't some homey space with a couch or television or anything like that. Just the basic stuff, since it is some old, unfinished basement.

The bigger stairwell in the picture leads up the the restaurant. Which isn't exactly a restaurant. I imagine it being an old Irish pub, that's basically populated by the same old-middle aged people every night. Probably a bunch of alcoholics or people who can't deal with their families and will spend the night there watching a sports games and drinking too many Guinnesses. Most people go there for drink and bar food, so aside from Finn, there would probably be one or two waitresses, with Lateefah being one, and then one additional one to the two, who would come when it's busier on weekends. There'd also be a cook. Finn runs the bar, and he's close with Brooklyn and Nick, which is why they're all allowed in his basement. He's an opinionated, strong willed Irish immigrant who likes to talk a lot ;D. He's probably alright with most of the kids in the basement but he isn't tucking them into bed at night or anything, so it's not like he thinks of them as his own.

The second stairwell is that little box in the top corner, which leads to the alley next to the bar. It's one of these types of openings here. It'd be the easier way to get in and out of the basement when the bar is closed. The bar is probably open from noon to midnight most days.

I think that's most of the basic info I wanted to get out there. As you can tell, it's an open ended roleplay, so I want to see where the characters can take the story! If you have any questions, just ask.

What would be the best way to write dialogue and scenes between two characters without making a string of 10 word posts? PMing someone is an option, but if I might suggest, I say we should use RPG Write for these scenes.

Does anyone agree?

And I usually just find PMing/IMing to be the easiest for collabs!

Sorry I've been gone for so long, personal life got in the way. I don't have time to catch up tonight, so I just posted something character-specific. I'll read up tomorrow when I have more time.

@Machine- I might be wrong, but in the last post, wasn't Oliver in the bar? Did he go down to nap after that, or are you saying that the events prior to this post (him helping with the move and going to the bar after eating Subway) hadn't happened?

If it comes up, you can assume that Colton is asleep by now. I'll wake him up in a few hours (IC time obviously).

Just a heads up that I probably won't be able to post until Thursday. I'm working an 11 hour shift tomorrow and have a couple of school assignments due by midnight, so I don't know if I'll have much energy left to write.

Hey guys :)! I hope that final's week is treating all of my fellow students well! It's kicking my ass, but I hope it's better for you all lol. Just writing to let you all know why Nick is still idly chilling at the bar. I don't have much free time right now, with studying and paper-writing and inhaling coffee like it's air, but I'm glad everyone else is continuing to move :D!

Hey everyone!

I know a couple of characters are just chilling right now (Nick included ;D). BB, Writer and Lauren said that they don't necessarily have to keep playing out this scene if we want to do a time skip, but I'm not sure if it's worth it to do the skip yet. I know Bandit said she won't be able to get on/post until Saturday, and the same for Thunder until Friday due to final exams and traveling back home from school. I likely won't be able to post until Thursday/Friday. So, if the rest of you are really anxious for the time skip (maybe to later that night so we can see Tee and Colton interact and so on), I'm okay with doing that, but if not, it might make sense to let the three girls and everyone else, write on until Thursday or so. Like, it just might not make sense to skip now if no one can post due to the craziness of finals weeks. Just let me know :).
