Lost Causes

Lost Causes

0 INK

Bands rise to fame; 1x1 rp.

1,665 readers have visited Lost Causes since Theweirdkid created it.

Introduction

1x1 roleplay. We both know the storline.

Steps to fame:
  1. Get a band (Prefrably with friends)
  2. Make kick-ass music
  3. Get signed
  4. ROCK ON.

A Group of friends had done what any other group of rock-hard friends would do; create a band. Allthough they dream of making it big-time it has been super difficalt as record lables think they are too "Immature" to be creating awesome music and to take the pressure of the gigs and the press. Doesnt stop them trying though and they keep playing little gigs.

However, they are still teenagers. They still need to mature and they are still experimenting with drink, drugs and other teenage things. How will it end? Will they make it to fame? Will love strike or will it end badly?

The GM of this roleplay hasn't created any rules! You can do whatever you like!

I Took a small breath of shock as my phone alarm exploded, causing the room to burst into a loud ringing noise. I Shook my head and fumbled on my bed-side table to turn the horrid noise off, as i did so my large great dane burst through the door and run clumsaly at me, hurtaling himself at me as he jumped onto my bed. I Groaned, trying to push him off as well as trying to reach for the phone and eventally turning the sound off.

Once the room was silant and the ringing had gone from my ears i let myself fall back onto the bed with a groan, looking up to the large face of the dane as he panted, looking at me.

I turned around in my bed and lay on my side. As we had a small holiday i didn't have to get up early for school, luckily. I was kind of awake though. I blinked my eyes a few times and took my smartphone, checking the time... it was already pretty late.

*i have this idea, what if she isn't in the band yet? The guys are searching for a singer and she shows up or something? if you'd like?*

(Sure! :D)

i managed, after minutes and minutes of wrestling with the wall of meat, to get the dane off me and onto the floor so i could get out of bed. i felt my feet touch the soft carpet and wiggled my toes into it with a small smile before looking to Dante who sat infront of me. "Okay okay.. We'll take you for a walk" i concluded and looked to the curtains. They were bright in colour, meaning that the sun was shining bright like always.

It didnt take me long to get up and ready, into some old denim shorts and checkered shirt topped with a beenie for good mesure. I Pulled on some socks and made my way downstairs to no one in the house but my sister. i groaned slightly at the thought of having to put up with her and smiled a morning at her, just getting a grunt in return.

My eyes widened as i saw the date... This evening i had to go to meet some guys that were playing in a band. They were searching for a singer and i had signed up together with some others. I sang a lot... i thought i was pretty good... but i wasn't to sure about it anyway. What if i messed up?
Maybe i could just act like i had forgotten the appointment? Not show up? No... i couldn't do that... I meen, i had signed up, now i just had to go...
I got out of bed, touching my feet to the cold floor. I didn't have carpet on my floor which was just old and grey... not even wood.
I walked over to my small closet and got out some clothes, just a skinny jeans and a striped top.

I Sat down on the chairs infront of the island int he middle of our kitchen and thought for a second as i checked my phone, It wasnt unusual for my friends to remind me stuff, after all i didnt have the best of memories. Sure enough there was a text from Luka. "Dont forget, My garrage.. 1pm.. We've got a possible singer coming" i looked up to the clock, seeing it was 12:30 and paniked and quickly grabbed myself some toast and quickly gave dante his breakfast before clipping his lead on and running out of the house.

I walked downstairs. Luckily my father was out working and my mother... well, she was around somewhere but didn't speak to me anyway. She wouldn't ever speak to me, after all, she had got me by "exident", which she kept reminding me whenever she did spoke.
I grabbed a small brioche and took a bite, putting my high boots on i had bought with some money i had earned doing some filthy job some time back. Nothing to good, but the boots were nice.
I checked my appearance in the mirror... make up: Check... hair done: check

I was ready and left the house, walking down the street.

I didnt have to run down the street to Luka's house, Dante was already dragging me so i had to run. i treid despertely to pull the great dane backwards but it was difficalt when he had his nose locked on a scent. After the running it didnt take me long to get to Luka's open garrage. i planted my feet onto the pavement to stop the large great dane from dragging me down the road and wandered into the garrage "Morning.. Im not too late, am i?" i asked carefully.

Just one more street to go... i stopped. I could just not show up... not go there. I looked down at the pavement. No, everything i had done in my life hadn't worked out... If i stopped attempting this this would also be a failure. I would be a failure.

I had to do it.

I took a deep breath as i walked trough the last street, checking the adresses on the houses, the numbers... counting untill i found this house with an open garage, some guys standing in there, and a dog that was a great dane without mistake.

'ehmm... hi..' i managed, really shy to meet these new people for the first time. Normally i wasn't a shy person... but this is what insecurity did to me. What if i didn't look good? what if my singing wasn't good? what if... what if...

"Nah, nah, your okay man" He said and laughed slightly as he sat on a table there. Joe, as always came over and not greeted me, but greeted the large dane, rubbing his ears. I chuckled slightly "Hi, Joe" i teased slightly before hearing a girls voice, looking up and scanning her with my bright green eyes and flicking my fringe from my face. Was she the girl who had the appointment?

Luka spoke. "You must be Lilly?" He asked and smiled, objously realising that no one else was going to speak. "Hi, Im Luka, thats joe, and the guy with the large dog is Travvi-" He stopped and coughed slightly "Sorry.. Travis." He said and grinned slightly.

I smiled slightly and took a few steps forwards. 'I'm Lilly... Lilly Tennessy' i said softly as i looked at the guy who had spoken curiously. 'I called you guys last week... you needed a singer...' i said slowly and looked at them. 'or... don't you need one anymore?' i asked a little insecure....

i piped up carefully "Yeah, no the position is still open.. Wanna show us what you can do?" i asked carefully with a reasuring smile. She seemed a little scared but i tried to be as polite as i could and turned to take a seat on one of the ploastic chairs in his garrage, putting a arm around the large dog.

I smiled slightly. Shit... i had somewhere hoped that the position was taken... now i had to sing! Damn... I looked at them and took a deep breath, looking at some guitars. 'Could i borrow one of those? I'm not so good at guitar... but i can play a few chords and well... it's easyer to sing on some music to be honest' i said carefully. I didn't have a guitar of my own: i didn't have the money to buy one. But i had practised guitar a long time ago with a friend...

Lukas nodded slightly. "Sure, go ahead, but hey, we've got a guitarist here, if you wanted them to play for you?" He suggested, nodding to me. I smiled reasuringly and looked to her once again. It was my old Acustic guitar that was left here, Lukas was borrowing it but i didnt mind. we had all of our band equipement at my house.. so my good guitar was there.

Dante began to pant slightly, it was hot outside and it must have been hard for such a large dog. I Rubbed his neck slightly, ruffling up the fur and slowly came up to his ears, playing with the soft fur that lay on them.

I looked at Travis and smiled. 'that would honestly be way better... I suck at guitar... i can play yeah... but that's it really, never took time to practise' i grinned and cocked my head to the side. 'can you play Don't stop believing from Journey?' i asked, assuming he could play it and looking at the acoustic guitar... It wasn't a hard song after all to play.
I tried to shake my nerves off... what if they didn't like it?

I Chuckled slightly. "Sure. Besides, who doesnt know how to play that?" i asked and smiled softly, getting up from the chair and dropped the lead on the floor as Dante slowly lowered himself to the floor, still panting slightly. I Grabbed my old guitar and headed back to the seat, sitting back down and playing a few Chords, frownings lightly as i looked to Luka "Dude.. Its out of tune, What have you done to it?" i asked with a playfull chuckle before attempting to tune it slightly, giving up after a few moments and looking up to her "You ready?" i asked carefully.

I nodded and smiled as he started to play, however the guitar was out of tune just a little... it was fine for me anyway. I don't know, this song was one of my favourites, reminding me that life could get better...
I got very nervous when he got to the point i had to sing and took a deep breath... i could do this.

'Just a smalltown girl... living in a lonely world! She took the midnight train, going anywhere...' i sang softly and looked at the Travis boy fast before down at the floor again and then at the Luka boy... I wished they stopped staring... Maybe i was out of tune or something? i didn't know... or maybe it was good?

'Just a city boy... born and raised in south detroit! He took the midnight train going anywhere...'
In this part i had finally a little time to breath and took a deep one.

'A singer in a smokey room... a smell of wine and cheap parfume! For a smile I will share the night, it goes on and on and on and on'. I knew i had changed the text a little trough the years, making it apply to my own life.
'Strangers. Waiting. Up and down the boulevard! Shadows searching in the night... Streetlight. People. Living just to find emotion. Hiding.. somewhere in the Niiiiiiiight!'.

I knew it was enough like this.. i had shown enough and there was no reason to continue the song... i meen... i hoped it was good enough at least...

i took a small breath as she began to sing, still playing and looking up to her every so often, however her singing was just amazing. once she'd stopped singing my guitar trailed of and i looked to her once again before looking to the other two for their decition. We were such good friends that by now we didnt have to speak to have a convosation. i gave a small nod and after our little "convosation" Lukas looked to her. "that was amazing, you got it" he said with a chuckle.
