Sean sat in his garage strumming on his guitar sitting on a chair. He was playing stair way to heaven. He sat there with his eyes closed thinking of the glorius day when Black Viper would take the world by storm. Today was band try outs and he was waiting for people to show up.

Q sat beside him, his feet propped up on the table next to Sean and his laptop against his legs. His fingers clicked away against the keys as he flipped the silver and blue fringe out of his eyes, only to have it fall back. He glanced up for a moment before back down. People were coming... He had made sure to advertise for it... Placing up flyers, running ads in the newspaper, and even going on the local rock radio station. Thank you, Father's cash.

Sean stopped strumming his guitar and looked at Q.
"You think anyones gonna come? I mean we aren't that known. I mean it's just you and me Q and your just the manager. Your not cool enough!" Sea said jokingly. He then strummed his guitar. "But seriously...You think I'm any good? Band good?" Sean said looking over to Q. He never really was self concious but when it came to his music he was. Music was his life.

Ali walked along the street his white epiphone microphone swinging in his hands. His headphones blasting the Attack Attack song "Stick Stickly" it had to be one of his most listened to songs on his ipod. Pulling the flyer from his pocket he scanned over the adress making sure he was heading in the right direction. Padding his back pocket he ade sure the instrumental cd was there with his choice of song selections. Some were full screaming song others have ordinary vocals and some had both.

Coming to an open garage he flicked his fringe out of his eyes giving a slight smile to the two sitting there. Pulling out his earphones he spoke "hi, I'm Ali this is the band auditions right?" he asked shoving his ipod in his other pocket.

Sean jumped up and smiled. He looked around his grage and smiled.
"Sure as hell is!" Sean said strumming his guitar with his index finger not taking his eye of ALi. "Oh yeah! Uh...I'm Sean. Lead guitarist and founder of Black Viper!" Sean said with his arms like a super hero. "What part are you trying out for?"

"erm.. i'm trying for lead singer, but i'm a screamer as well im not sure if that what you were going for" He placed his mic on the floor as he pulled out the cd. "I've brought some songs unless you have a request"

He handed Sean the cd with a piece of paper with a list of four songs on it:

Asking Alexandria- A Prophecy.
The Devil Wears Prada- HTML Rulez Dood
AttackAttack- Stick Stickly
Agraceful - A phropecy in reveire

Sratching his head lightly he flicked his hair again picking up his mic.

Q stayed seated, watching them from behind his bangs as his hands stilled on the keyboard. "Hn." He whispered, eyebrows pulling together slightly as he turned back to the screen. He dragged his fingers across the trackpad, opening a new excel program to take notes with. He didn't stand, he didn't say. A word. He just stayed there, feet propped on the table with a computer on his lap.

Sean smiled and sat back down looking at the list.
"Well every band needs a singer I suppose. So you go ahead and sing and I'll sit back and jusge." Sean said jokingly with his right thumb up. "And you can go ahead and pick the song."
(For when you play your instrument you don't have to specificaly say the words of the osngs. Just say what you sang and how you character was feeling, thinking, etc.)

Mirra was walking down the street, looking down at the ground whilst trying to take note of her surroundings. Her large keyboard bag was slung over her back, weighing her down incredibly with the amount of chords as well as the weight of it's stand. Was she lost? She double-checked her flyer. Surely, this must be the right place. Arriving at the address noted on the flyer she ahd been given, Mirra felt scared. She wasn't sure if she wanted to do this anymore. It was a crazy idea, a fleeting dream and her mother, and possibly her father, would not approve.

Standing on the driveway and peering into the open garage, Mirra saw that someone was already having an audition. Well, I might as well watch, she thought, and stood awkwardly on the driveway. She didn't have to audition now that she was here. So Mirra waited, and chose to decide after she had seen this other person audition.

Ali nodded "Thanks man, I'll do Asking Alexandria then im hooked on them at the moment" He flicked his hair as he plugged in his mic tapping the top of it making sure it was working. Insterting the cd a click track played for four beats before the song started to play. Bouncing up and down he head banged for a while before he started to scream and finnaly sing. A huge burst of energy ran through him as he got even more into the song even at the slow parts.

Q leaned back slightly in his chair as he heard him start. It surprised him, the sudden start up, and he quickly jotted down a few notes. However, he felt a presense in the driveway, and half turned in his seat to motion the girl to come in and start setting up. The silverette turned back to Ali, watching and listening. He was pretty good. Better than the singers of some other ametur bands he had seen.

Ali decided to finish the almost end on a low scream rater than a high as there was a mix of both a high and low scream at the last end phrase. As the song stopped he breathed out flicking his hair out of his face regardless that it was slightly gleaming with sweat. "What do you reckon?" He said as he paused the cd to stop the next instrumental song from playing. Putting his microphone down he shoved his hands into his pocket.

"Reckon?" Sean said rubbing his chin acting like he was in deep thought. He had already decided he'd be in the band once he started singing. Sean stood up and began pacing back in forth. "Weeeell....Why the hell not! Welcome to the band!"

"AWESOME!" Ali said jumping up and down his Ipod flew out of his back pocket it must have been knocked loose when he was more or less moshing around the quite large garage. Catching it buy the wire he swung it to his hand catching it. "Dude you won't regret this really"

Seeing one of the boys in the garage motion to her to come inside and start setting up, Mirra froze. She'd been seen and now the blonde felt as if she had to go in. Mirra had watched the other guy do his audition and it went well, giving Mirra a little bit of hope. So she walked up the driveway, and greeted everyone inside.

"Hey guys. I'm Mirra." She smiled at each of the others in turn. "I'm here for the auditions. Obviously." Mirra gestured to her giant keyboard bag. "I'll set up now, I think."

She took the bag off her back, and knelt down beside it, pulling numerous chords and the keyboard itself out of it. It took her a while, but finally her bright red keyboard was set up, on the stand with all the chords in the right places and complete with a microphone for her to sing into. Mirra turned her microphone on and tapped it. "If you aren't sure what I'm auditioning for," she spoke into it, her chirpy voice magnified throughout the garage, "it's keyboardist and possibly back-up singer, if you like the sound of that." Mirra grinned and swept her blonde fringe out of her face. "Shall I go now or wait for him to finish?" She looked to the boy who had just finished his audition.

Q stood, finally standing from his chair as he quickly finished typing something up. Within seconds, he had picked up his computer case and pulled out a small case. The silverette walked over toward the new singer, pressing the end of the box as a neon blue card with black stripes popped out, his free hand outreached. "Quinton Lark." He introduced himself. The teen's voice wasn't really deep, but it was far from high, and he spoke with confidence and dignity, like an adult would at an important meeting. His father was the head of one of the larger electronic companies of the world, selling most of their supplies to government agencies. Quinton had had to know how to act in a business area, never really letting loose like all the other kids his age. Never broken one of the rules, never been late for a class, and never even gotten a speeding ticket. He was all work, and not one so much for play. Sure it was stressful at times, but he figured he could just plow through it all to get to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. "Manager and head technician of the band. Now, if you don't mind, just make yourself comfortable while we finish up the auditions." He shook the other's hand quickly before walking back to the main table, sitting forward and motioning for the girl to start.

"Oh, well okay." Mirra seemed unsure of herself when given the 'go ahead' from the silver haired boy called Quinton. "Here's my CD." She walked over and handed a disk to the other guy. "It's number four."

She returned to her keyboard and double checked it's dials and that the microphone was hooked up properly. "I'm guessing you've heard of Enter Shikari?" Mirra asked, sweeping her blonde fringe to the side of her face. "Because I'll be auditioning with Labyrinth."

The blonde nodded to the boy to play the disk, and as it started Mirra suddenly felt relaxed. 'Labyrinth' was second nature to her, Mirra's expert fingers hit and bounced off the notes perfectly and as she sung, because she couldn't scream some parts, she moved into a whole new state of calm. Her voice was quite deep for someone her size, but not in a manly way; many of her friends thought it was a perfect rock voice. Although judging by how much the two audition holders liked the previous guy, Mirra would not be the lead singer. But she was okay with that, and continued to play, thoroughly enjoying the song whilst playing it.

Ali nodded and sat down as the keyboardist started to play, she had a good voice it had potential for harmonies on some slow songs and such. He nodded his head to the flow of the music.

Sean yawned and smiled at the keyboardist. She was really cute. Sean blushed and tried his best to hide it. He hurried to make an excuse to walk away to save himself the embarasment. Sean walked inside threw the door in the garage. "Q you take over for a bit. I'm starving! Your mom kept me up all night!" Sean said chuckling at his joke. When he got back outside he had a club sandwich and a cup of milk in his hand. Sean sat it down on the table by his chair. Sean then pulled out a bag of chips and began eating them. Sean directed his bag towards the keyboardist. "Want some?"

Q watched the girl's hands glide over the keys, nodding slightly before writing something down. He frowned, sending a small glare at the guitarist when he spoke, and hit his arm with the back of his hand when he returned, the corners of his lips almost curled into a smile. "Idiot. Mom's in California. That must have been my Father. Never knew you swang that way, Sean." He smirked, noticing the other's blush from earlier and seeing how much he could mess with it. Finally though, he turned back to the keyboardist, leaning back with his feet on the table.

Unfortunately, as all good songs do, 'Labyrinth' came to an end. Mirra sighed as she touched the final keys, and found herself wishing the song hadn't seemed to end so quickly.

She shook her head at the offer of chips; for now, Mirra was not hungry and didn't exactly feel like potato chips anyway. A smile at the boys bickering had spread across her face as she asked, "So what did you think?"

Ali couldn't help but laugh at Sean and Q's back and forth, He fiddled with his microphone it was pretty old but did very well with all the thrashing round that he did whilst he was singing and screaming.

Sean smiled and winked at Q. " swing whatever way the wind blows." Sean said lightly smacking Q in the head. "The wind did it." He said smiling then looking at the keyboardist. "Well welcome to the band." He said taking a bite out his sandwich. He chewed then swallowed. He then smirked at the girl. "Wanna kiss to make it official?"

Ali coughed and sprayed his water that he had been drinking on the floor. Clearing his throat again "sorry about that, and where's my kiss then Sean you never offerd me one when i done what i had to do?" he said sounding serious but couldn't help but smile.
