Blacklight Delilah

Blacklight Delilah

0 INK

Join the members of the budding band 'Blacklight Delilah' as they rise to the top!

703 readers have visited Blacklight Delilah since Forensic_Anthro created it.

Introduction

Image


The date is September 6th, 2010, and the economy managed to take a sharp turn for the best last year, but the number of bands had lowered significantly.
Last month eight teenagers, ages sixteen to eighteen, met for the first time on accident, discovering each others musical talents.
Together they agreed to make a band by the name of 'BlackLight Delilah'.


Anyways, BlackLight Delilah is made up of thirteen completely different personalities:

1. Dreamer: The person whom is always dreaming of bigger and better things
2. Artistic: The artistic one of the group, whether it be painting or something else: Wednesday (OblivionBoix)
3. Serious: The one that's serious about anything and everything, sometimes too serious: Wander (Thadine)
4. Leader: The one always taking charge
5. Playful: The more... Playful one of the group: Dani (Bizarre1)
6. Hyper: The hyper one of the group
7. Musician: The one with music always on her mind: Vanille (Forensic_Anthro)
8. Shy: The shy one whom usually gets trampled by the other members: Coda (Vain)
9. Outgoing: The outgoing one whom will do nearly anything: Raptor (IronPhoenix)
10. Partier: The most fun of the group, the partier takes very little seriously: Stix (Celedia)
11. Random: Always coming up with the oddest things to say at times, she often gets odd looks: Mocha (ValkyrieKnight)
12. Happy: The one person in the group that always seems to have a smile upon their face: Michael (Armageddon)
13. Paranoid: Paranoid at the simplest of things. This sometimes comes with involuntary facial twitching: DJ Woodstock (NewKidOnTheBlock)

I will let you interpret these personalities as you will from there, but remember that every band member (This includes roadies and the manager) will have a different personality.

Back on subject, now. They met a man/woman, whom was a freshly ex-manager from a band, had overheard them playing a song together (which was, sadly, the Itsy Bitsy Spider), and asked them to be his/her new band, to which they all agreed.

Now BlackLight Delilah is playing at venues in Los Angeles, more commonly known as LA or LA County, as they work their way to stardom ever so slowly.
Will BlackLight Delilah stay together? Will the members find significant others in the band, in the crowd, or at all?
Will anyone find out the band member's true names? Will there be fights among the band? Will the band members become stars? Will they be overwhelmed by fans?
That, my friend, is up to you.

Songs
First off, you have to understand that we will be playing this like bands such as Cinema Bizarre and Panic! at the Disco and such had never produced whatever songs the band will be playing and that BlackLight Delilah had made them.



The Rules

- No flaming.
- Nothing over PG-13 in the sexuality department. We don't need to read it.
- Be mature. There will likely be alcohol and drug references in this RP.
- Posts must be at least a paragraph (that's five sentences minimum).
- Please try to use proper grammar.
- Follow general RPG rules.
- Be courteous to others, use common sense, and have fun!



Okay, a little bit of an explanation beforehand.
First off:
'Full Name' this means 'put your character's full name to the right of the colons'
'Band Name' this is the name that everyone, and I mean everyone, will know you by. It's your band name, so don't just put a nickname. It's to keep your fans from knowing your actual name.
'Age' is very obvious
'Sex' is your character a guy or a girl? Female or male?
'Instrument' Next to this, all you have to put is the role that you are applying for. If you have an actual instrument please include a picture of what it looks like.
'Appearance' Please use a picture, a description, or both. No anime pictures, please.
'Personality' If you are going to be a band member (Keyboardist/Vocals/Manager/Roadie/Anything except a fan) then put which personality that I listed earlier that you are applying for and then go ahead into your character's personality.
'Alcohol' this is a yes or no question. Does your character drink?
'Drugs' again, this is a yes or no question. Does your character do drugs?
'Sexually Active' all of the characters here will be 16+, and this is a rather obvious question, so, I shall leave that to you...
'Song' what's a song that describes your character and who's it by?

Michael watched Vanille draw for a minute or two before glancing at Emma, who always made him feel awkward. He fidgeted with his phone for a moment before receiving a text and gently prodding Vanille's shoulder, "I'm going to go see a friend...you can come if you want." He said, figuring he should let them know where he was going. He slid his phone back into his pocket and then glanced toward the door.

Wednesday blinked as crayons suddenly appeared in front of her, as if appearing out of thin air. She looked towards Vanille and listened as she spoke. Quickly nodding and beaming happily at the little gift, she spoke, "Uh huh, you're right. Thanks Vani! Oh, you should speak German more often too, your accent sounds pretty" she noted offhandedly, before picking up a few crayons and a white napkin, since she left her sketchpad at home.

She placed the rose in front of her and scribbled away furiously, a childish look of concentration on her face as she continuously glanced at the rose, and at Vanielle, specifically her hair. She let out a sound that sounded a bit like 'Eureka!' and once again began to draw, her work coming out surprisingly neat, considering she was using crayons and a napkin. After 2 more minutes, she was done, which was shown when she glanced up with a confused look on her face, as if she'd forgotten where she was for a moment. She shook her head, and the dazed look was gone.

"Here! Consider this a present, and since I can't really give it to anyone else" Wednesday handed Vanille the napkin drawing, which contained a delicate rose that showed signs of withering, and the name 'Vanille' in big pink script, under the flower. "Do you like it?" she was smiling again, happy with the outcome of her work.

Glancing up from the place mat she had been doodling on, Vanille smiled at Michael, "I'd love to, but I'm hoping to slip in a bit of practice before tonight."
Returning her gaze table-ward once more, she listened to Wednesday talk and blushed deeply when she finished. "Danke." she had gotten quiet again.

After a few minutes she caught movement out of the corner of her eye and looked back up. Grinning as she spotted the drawing, Vanille hugged Wednesday, a stream of uninterpretable German compliments escaping her mouth. Blushing again when she finished and realized that she had, once again, lost track of her languages.

"And that is why I'm not the singer." she laughed, turning her attention back to the place mat and scribbling away for a minute before she tore several pieces of the mat off and slid them to everyone at the table.

On the scraps of paper were little chibi-like versions of each person at the table and their name written in German (if it translates) at the bottom in Vanille's messy half-cursive writing.

Smiling as her food arrived, Vanille was attacking the fluffy pumpkin pancakes with her fork in under ten sections.

Emma grinned as Vanille's German came out once again.

"And again with the lovely German my dear Vani." she said.

She glanced at Michael, who announced that he was leaving to go see a friend. Emma, of course, had to comment. She had hung around a lot of guys before she joined the band and developed a dirty mind. She smiled and winked at Michael.

"Have fun." she said, knowing that the wink explained what she meant.

Emma looked at the drawing Vanille drew for her and smiled.

"I like it, Vani."

As soon as the pancakes arrived, Vanille made them disappear. She looked around at everyone else to see if she was the only one who didn't inhale their food, if they ordered food. Was she the only one who didn't even order food? She didn't really care. Going places with the group was fun. Didn't matter what they were doing or where they were going, as long as she could talk and hang out with them.

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

Sorry I haven't been on in a while guys. Finally got all my crap moved in. Now I just need to arrange things lol. I'll post ASAP.

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

Sorry guys! My power was out because of the hurricane until just now! And I have to run away until tonight but hopefully tonight I can get a post up!!

:D

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

Haha, you think this one's good so far? You should have seen the original roleplay. That one was awesome (until people stopped posting). :D

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

Ah! I'm sorry. I submitted my character without checking out the OCC.

This rp seems like it's gonna be really amazing, I hope it doesn't die! D;

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

I have posted! It seems like it is going to be an interesting rp.

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

C'mon, people! Don't let it die!!

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

I feel horrible. xD
I've posted once. Urgh.
I will post, AFTER, I move into my new house for sure.
/sigh/

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

I'm in the process of moving at the moment so I may not be able to post for a few days. Sorry guys. You can drag Coda along with you Valkrie.

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

Just in case y'all are up early to post... I just thought I'd let you know that I'll probably be majorly sleeping in today, since it's light out (6:15 am) and I haven't gone to sleep yet. Plus I'm on the couch while my room is being floored. So yeah, don't expect me up and coherent any time soon. xD

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

Oh wow, I haven't heard Rush in forever. Good band.

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

I would highly recomend this song as our opener, it just seems appropriate.

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

Wow I don't know most of these bands except some of Vain's mentioned o.o
Like Simple plan, nickelback, 3 doors down and 3 days grace. Nickelback is my current fave \o\

Btw when we doing our gig? xD

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

Ah, I've never been much of a TOOL fan. I admit they're a good band; just not my style.

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

Are you serious?! A Perfect Circle is fronted by Maynard from TOOL. Both are amazing bands by the way and depending on what type of music you like I'd suggest the two songs Thadine suggested as well as "The Outsider" and "Counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums". Ahhh!

They also did a cover of "Imagine" which was good.

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

I've heard of them, but I've never listened to them. I generally listen to bands like 3 doors down, 3 days grace, simple plan, shinedown, sum 41, slipknot, metallica, and nickelback.

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

Okay.
Yay. Crepes. =)
xD
OH OH, I have this really good band I listen to, called A Perfect Circle. They have good songs. Go look up 'Weak and Powerless' or 'noose'. Both of those are good, and would maybe...work okay for this? Meh? XD
I'll post soon. But there's this ghost on Fatal Frame that really is pissing me off, and needs to be detroyed.
=)

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

Hello, people. Look down here... Or up here. Whichever it is.

So, I just now realized that someone asked about the set list for their gig. I'm not particularly picky, so does anyone have any suggestions? I'm thinking that they're going to be openers for some (unnamed) rock band or something along those lines. I don't really listen to rock music, so I'll let you all come up with songs...

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

Not much at all. Everyone woke up. Vani and Michael are hanging in the park about to run to iHop. Raptor is on his way to breakfast at iHop where Stix and Woodstock are already about to nom. Mocha and Coda are singing in the girl's bedroom....

And Wander, you... You are in the lobby.

Mass text invite has gone out to everyone with cell phones though to join in the fun at iHop!

CREPES FOR ALL.

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

Crap.
Didn't check the posts yet, I was gone for like...5 days. I think.
What happened? I'll read them now I guess, but my computer is being retarded and taking about 10 minutes to load every page.

Re: [OOC] Blacklight Delilah

*takes back plate, glares* You're evil...

...ah, well, thank goodness for backup plans! *pulls out second plate of cookies* :D
