New York! The city of dreams, and fame. What would you give up to make it big?

This roleplay will focus on a number of people living in an apartment complex in Brooklyn. None of them are from New York originally and all of them have a secret for why they've come or why they've become who they are. Yes, they all have a dream and want to make it big... but there are other reasons for them leaving home. One girl has recently been let out of jail for drinking and driving, another has crippling stage fright, and one guy was fired from his job for sleeping with his boss. What's your secret and can you get past it in order to make it in this fast paced city?

4. You can play up to three characters. But please try to balance genders! If there are a ton of female characters, don't join with three girls. :P

7. Don't make your secret too morbid like "murder" YET don't make your secret "I am a really rich heir/heiress trying to find the real meaning of life that's why I ran away from home and now I'm struggling". PLEASE, have mercy!
8. HAVE FUN! It gets irritating when our RP is all about sadness and pain.
9. PM your 'secret' to myself or lovechanningforever for approval.
10. Keep it interesting, nuff said.

THE APARTMENT BLOCK

Image


The apartment block is very old and actually used to be a warehouse, but it has been converted into apartments. Each apartment is very large with many windows, but has no walls (unless you count some wooden panels that have been put up) and very old appliances (which boarder on ancient). Depending on the tenants, the place can look anywhere from run down and depressing to very interesting and full of character. It's hot in the summer and freezing in the winter, but the rent is cheap and it's in a decent location (as far as Brooklyn is concerned).

Lee tucked Penny tightly on her doggie bag and doubled check her main door to see if she locked it properly. Three minutes as she made her way out of the complex she bumped into two guys. One holding the paper and the other dressed in his chef uniform.
"Oh hey, what's the commotion all abo- oh my!" She greeted her neighbors when she found her newest neighbor, Sian, in a very awkward position. She quickly rushed to her side and covered her up while glaring at the two guys. "What are you two doing staring at her like that?" Her eyes big as saucers and tried to cover Shan's and Riley's eyes.
"Girl, go on. Hurry and go inside the elevator." Without looking at the red head, she told her to rush as her hands covered both the guy's sight.
"Go on... Hurry!" She couldn't believe how embarrassing it could have been. Even Penny yapped from all the commotion.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Riley was even surprised with everything that had happened it the last ten minutes. Next thing he knew Lee was covering up Sian in the awkward situation. "Hey, I just saw here her. Not my fault but..." He was about to say something else when Lee continued to cover her eyes. "Wait Lee, I'm just-" She tried to shove her away to say sorry to Sian about the situation when suddenly he had moved her too hard that next thing he saw she was about to fall on her butt.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Wait Lee, I'm just-" Were the last words Riley was telling her when she felt that he had shoved her too hard. Since she was wearing some high heels, Lee's left foot slipped and she got off balanced. The only thing she was able to hold on to was Shan's shirt. Everything went by so fast that all she was able to do was close her eyes and waited for her to fall on the floor.

Most recent OOC posts in New York: The City That Never Sleeps

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

I'm TOTALLY still game.

I had the most amazing time, and I have way more stories than I can even remember lol (A lot of them are probably not appropriate for this setting too. lol) but it was fantastic, thanks for asking!

I have a lot more time as well. I've got a couple weeks before classes start again, and it is a light semester for me so I'll have time to spare. :)

As far as how things are going currently, Orlando needs to respond to Bella and Clara needs to get back to John about the job... but I haven't seen Lily post in a while. :/

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

Hey! I hope you had a wonderful time in Europe! Any crazy stories? :)

And no you are certainly not kicked out. I sort of stayed away from this for a bit because I wasn't sure where to take it or who was even still interested. I',m game for keeping it going, though! And can be more committed now.

Lovechanningforever and Alan, are you two still interested? Snicker, are you still game?

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

Is this still alive? Sorry just got back from my 3 week European tour... :/ Hope I didn't get kicked out since I let Kenzi know I was going. :/

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

Good to see you back Kenzi - we thought you'd abandoned us. However, I think we should move forward in time before anyone posts - maybe a week or so, and assume everyone is settled in...

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

I like the idea of the casting convention! Lets go with that :) I'm just waiting for someone else to post. Lovechanning, why don't you give it a go? <3

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

I'm sort of with lovechanningforever, but for one idea. I know I first thought of it, but I think to have the building threatened with closure AND the casting call is a bit much. Let's do the casting call first, and keep the other in reserve. I also agree that anyone who doesn't post has either moved out or simply doesn't appear or interact with anyone in the game. That's my view.

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

I agree. So what other steps should we do?

So far here are some suggestions:
1. for those who didn't bother to post again, let's pretend they moved out.
2. casting convention
3. someone wants to take the building down.

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

hmm, well im back, and i have a thought of where to go. it's time for a casting convention!

These things happen all the time in New York, casting companies rent out conventino centers and spaces to send people to scout out some new and upcoming talent, in all the Arts. Maybe a few conventions happen in town and the guys start heading after their dreams. I don't know if they should come anywhere near success yet though.

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

Did you mean that to be a really sexy image, 'cos if so it worked!!!!!!

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

funny! We can be the three musketeers! Just because Kenzi and I are ladies doesn't mean we don't like it rough. Sword fighting on stilettos LOL

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

Maybe the three of us should adopt a collective name -either "Beauties and the Beast" or "The thorn between two roses" :)

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

I can definitely ask a few RPers to join in. Maybe we just need to hang on a bit longer. We are three determined RPers. We can strive to make it work right? I won't let my baby die LOL.

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

Well, we still have Riley, Joliesse, Heath, Belladonna, Shan and Sian - enough for a few romances and conflicts if we mix and match carefully. I think we should instigate a rule that no character can have a romance with another character played by the same person though, that's a bit euwwwwwwwwwwwww!

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

@Alan: Yes, I was absolutely thinking of an idea like that.

Or maybe if in case the others won't be returning to play in the RP we can pretend that they moved out. Whatcha say Kenzi?

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

Yeah I vote absolute NO to letting it die, and absolute YES to taking the action forward to the next day - or maybe a few days later when everyone has settled into their rooms. The party could be like a kind of overture to the main story.

As to where to take it - what about the apartment building is about to be demolished, and the tenants put on a multi-talent show to raise money to save it? Just kicking ideas around here, I'm sure others can come up with something more interesting.

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

Aww poor Kenzi. I have no idea as well. It's not like we can drop the people just like that. Maybe you can start a post leaving everything else in a blur. Like after 10 hours? I really don't know and have no idea.
It may sound mean but at least some people should have the decency to say they're no longer interested instead of leaving us hanging. Right?

Maybe a vote would be good.

Who wants forget about the night and start with the "tomorrow" post? (Did I made any sense?! LOL). Say YAY!
Who are those who still wants to linger in the night? Say NAY!

I vote YAY!

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

I don't want this to die either but I haven't posted because I am dead sick and overwhelmed with work. Also, I have no idea where to take the RP from here. Suggestions? I hope to post something tonight and I am going to end the party! This party is going too long

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

Yes, a very deep and sad sigh. Please don't let it die. In the meantime, who wants to start another realistic RP in the thread forum? Just PM me :D

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

(sigh) looks like this one's dying :(

Re: [OOC] New York: The City That Never Sleeps

im on vacation and dont have much time or care to post much either so plzsomeone else, like kenzi, control Richard for a bit.
