Shades of Life

Shades of Life

0 INK

Destiny has a strange way about itself. In a small town where everything is black and white until you find your soulmate, a group of young adults must learn what it means to love if they ever hope to one day appreciate color.

913 readers have visited Shades of Life since Zoey26123 created it.

Introduction

Image

ImageLife is bleak, black and white, colorless in Maysville, Florida. By itself on the coast, the small town is beloved by the adults and mostly tolerated by the youth. Teenagers find the idea of color to be strange until they catch a glimpse of red or green as they walk by a flower basket or a tree. In the small high school, rumors have spread that some students are beginning to see color.

In the small town of 10,000, destiny has worked itself in a way where nearly everyone finds their soulmate in the small town. If they don't, then they move away eventually, forever color blind and wondering of what could have been. The largest fear in Maysville being to not find your soulmate, or to not realize who it is. Merely being around your soulmate begins to leak color into the spectrum of color, an addicting sight that makes youth crave for more.

In the complexities of summer, young adults must attempt to push past their inner conflicts and fears, to realize who they are and what they want in life, before it's too late, and all color seeps from their life forever.

Image

ImageA town where everyone basically knows everyone though may or may not know everyone's name. There is three schools in the entire town, one for each school group. Main street is lined with small shops and home run businesses with the beach behind them and sidewalks between almost every store to have access to said beach. Majority of houses rest in neighborhoods while the wealthiest of people live on the beach. Apartments for smaller families are above the main street shops. Maysville Park rests between the high school and the end of main street. A few major business franchises reside in the town but not many. In summer, tourists flock to the cute small town with many pieces of beauty. Summer romances come and go, flings fly off into the distance, and potential soulmates waltz right by the young adults of Maysville.

Tourists don't know of Maysville's quirk. The members of the town know it is forbidden to release the information as it would only bring hardship upon the town. While many individuals have different viewpoints of the small town and each other, all, even the disturbed ones, would never share such information, for there was no reason to hurt everyone and everything they had ever known and loved, even if it was only themselves.

More roles may be added upon request but please have an idea of what you want to do. Also, all these roles must be filled up first. First come first serve basis. Reservations last 48 hours unless you personally PM me. Read rules below thoroughly before attempting a reservation. If you have a great idea for a character PM me and I will work it out with you even if all the roles below have not yet been filled. Must be committed to this roleplay before you apply.

Image
Name || Age || Male 1 || Soulmate: Female 4 || Local || Faceclaim || Open
[Male 1] has found his soulmate in [Female 4] and their relationship grows stronger everyday. They cherish each other as they steadily see more and more color together. The two are seen as the perfect couple by everyone but are they beginning to feel the pressure? One day, the color they've been seeing suddenly begins to fade slightly. Is their relationship unwinding? Can they save it?

Image
Name || Age || Male 2 || Soulmate: Male 4 || Local || Darwin Gray || Reserved by Dirty Pretty Things
[Male 2] has been dating [Female 2] since she arrived in Maysville but can't help but feel as if the relationship is off. He doesn't know why it isn't working the way he thought it would, but he knows he should see more color if she truly was his soulmate. But [Male 2] refuses to admit to himself that he truly has feelings for someone else, Danny Harper, but it could never work out... Could it?

Image
Name || Age || Female 2 || Soulmate: Male 3 || Tourist || Faceclaim || Open
[Female 2] has been dating [Male 2] since the beginning of summer and feels as if he's the one. She's steadily been seeing more and more color nearly every day. What she fails to realize though is that her friend from work at the seaside pool club, [Male 3], is actually the one making her see more color as they get further into summer and see each other more and more, even more than she sees [Male 2]. But [Male 3] is a nobody, so it couldn't possibly be him in [Female 2]'s mind. [Female 2] has been staying with her family in a beach house they rent and enjoy every summer in the upper end of town.

Image
Name || Age || Male 3 || Soulmate: Female 2 || Local || Colton Haynes || Reserved by Belynta
[Male 3] feels as if [Female 2] is the one for him, but he doesn't know for certain since she seems so happy everyday with [Male 2]. [Male 3] fears that if he speaks up, she will only put him down and those feelings he had would be squelched, leaving him with nobody. Could he convince her of his feelings? Or at least make her see that maybe [Male 2] isn't the best choice for her?

Image
Thea Rose || Age || Female 3 || Soulmate: Kyle Harrison || Local || Skyler Samuels || Taken by Zoey
A shy girl, Thea Rose works often in order to make money. She works at least two jobs and doesn't think she has time to ever find romance and as a result, believes she will never see color. One day while she was waiting tables though, Kyle Harrison and a few friends walk in and when she sees him, she notices the color of his eyes first, that she could see it. Suddenly intrigued, Thea Rose can't help but wonder about him, and about whether or not the rich boy would even look her way again once he paid his check.

Image
Danny Harper || Age || Male 4 || Soulmate: Male 2 || Local || Dalton Rapattoni || Taken by Zoey
Danny Harper is sure he found his soulmate in [Female 2]. Every time he sees her and her boyfriend walking down the beach it's as if the world brightens and the slow turning blue sky becomes slightly sharper. Danny Harper is not shy with anyone and while he thinks his love is in [Female 2], he wishes it was instead with [Male 2] as he is exactly the sort of person Danny Harper is sure he would fall in love with and live happily with.

Image
Name || Age || Female 4 || Soulmate: Male 1 || Local || Lily Collins || Reserved by illusivedreamer
[Female 4] has found his soulmate in [Male 1] and their relationship grows stronger everyday. They cherish each other as they steadily see more and more color together. The two are seen as the perfect couple by everyone but are they beginning to feel the pressure? One day, the color they've been seeing suddenly begins to fade slightly. Is their relationship unwinding? Can they save it?

Image
Kyle Harrison || 21 || Male 5 || Soulmate: Female 3 || Tourist || Alex Pettyfer || Taken by Belynta
Visiting Maysville with a few friends and his parents in his parents nice beach house, Kyle Harrison and his friends one day went to a different restaurant than they normally did, an extremely popular tourist attraction where they heard great food was. When they were approached by a waitress, Thea Rose, Kyle Harrison was struck by her. He couldn't help but wonder about the girl ever since he first met her, receiving teasing from his friends while he contemplated what it was about her that was so intriguing and eventually led to him not only thinking about her constantly, but attempting to reach out to her as well.

ImageActivity || Please be active! This includes posting at least twice a week (hopefully more than three or four would be great!). If you are not willing to be dedicated, please do not apply, I want this to stay active. This is a role-play that I want to last and enjoy! You have three days to get a post up unless you notify me otherwise (PM or OOC works). Please keep up in the OOC. I will post important information there. Please do the relationship thread though it is not required. At least talk with others to find out your characters' relationships with others. Don't guess, it could be considered metagaming at some point.

Posts || Posts need to be at least three paragraphs, 450 words. It's really easy when you start doing thoughts, descriptions, how others look, what others might feel. Think! Literacy please! If I don't think there is enough, I will tell you. Try to match what your partner you are currently roleplaying with gave you, if you can't it's okay, but please get close. No metagaming (controlling another person's character without their consent), god gaming (making a character super strong or unbeatable), or Mary Sues (Making a perfect character or a perfect tragic character). Normal roleplay rules. I will call you out if I see this rule being broken.

Reservations || Reservations last 24 hours until you enter a WIP (Which can be totally blank) which then reserves the role an extra 48 hours. PM me if you need more time. When you are entering a reservation, please include the hex code, faceclaim, a gif of the faceclaim, and the role. I will take reservations through PM. Reservations are first come first serve, no competition at all. Don't ask for it. I will PM you a warning after 48 hours and if you do not respond within 24, the role will be giving to someone else or opened up again unless you finish the character.

Gamemaster Abilities/Requirements Contact me! I will talk to you and I would love to answer questions you might have. This is going to be fun but you must stay in contact if you have questions so we can keep things going! Other characters not used by a person will act as NPCs. Only people who create an NPC can control them. Like if I created a bunch of friends for my character, nobody else could control them unless they ask me either in the OOC or PM. Contact me if you have more fun ideas or anything you think would be great!!! Also, in your reservation, please include whether or not your character has a job and if so, at what store? If they are rich and tourists, please do not give them a job. If they are rich but locals, they can have a job.

If anyone has a question about where this is taking place, this is where it takes place, a small town that's real but in this roleplay called Maysville!

Thanks Everyone! Enjoy!



Please make the character sheet as pretty as possible! I won't accept it if it isn't pretty! You can use your own CS but you need to include basics and if I see it's missing anything, I will not accept it until it's added/fixed.

Re: Shades of Life

My character's all done. :)

Re: Shades of Life

She's yours! I'm hoping to start by Wednesday now to give you some time.

EVERYONE! FINISH YOUR CHARACTERS ASAP PLEASE!!!!

ALSO, FEMALE 2 IS NOW OPEN AGAIN. WILL UPDATE THE FRONT PAGE TOMORROW. MESSAGE ME IF INTERESTED OR SAY SO HERE! IF ANYONE IS WILLING TO TAKE ANOTHER CHARACTER TO HAVE TWO I WOULD LOVE YOU!

Re: Shades of Life

If you all don't mind, since it is rather late, may I reserve Female 4? This is her:

Name: Erika Harmon / FC: Lily Collins / Hex code: #9E466B / Occupation: Lifeguard

Re: Shades of Life

It's happening! I will be messaging anyone who hasn't submitted characters left! Since I've been so busy with a show and tech week and rehearsals, I haven't had time to really moderate. As soon as I get my characters and everyone else gets their characters done we will begin. Hopefully by Monday at the latest, tomorrow the earliest. Keep working!

Re: Shades of Life

Is this still happening? I'm only asking because there aren't any other characters yet lol and I am worrying. Didn't want this to stall before its even started lol

Re: Shades of Life

FC for Male 3 is Colton Haynes, he is a local and currently works as a mechanic

Image

Re: Shades of Life

I'll start working on male 3 then as I think that's the only other essential char.

And thanks achelois, it wasn't easy but my insomnia helped lol

Re: Shades of Life

Zoey26123 wrote:Yes you can!!! That's such a perfect FC and job! I love him! Yes you're accepted. :)

Spread the word everyone! I think a few more characters (at least 2) and we can play!!!

Thank you so much! I'll start working on him right away. c:

Re: Shades of Life

I think you guys should take characters if you'd like them! It'll make things happen sooner. We might even be able to start Sunday or Saturday! Let me know which roles and all the other stuff if you want to have another! Thanks! Couldn't have asked for better people to find this!!

Re: Shades of Life

      :o I commend you Belynta for finishing so quickly. I'm slow as molasses ; o ; oh and if this RP needs anymore characters I'll be willing to do another one if we need it. RIGHT AFTER I FINISH CAMILLE Sobs.

Re: Shades of Life

Character submitted finally! In between formatting problems and my computer its taken me too many hours! But phew its finally done. I really hope you find it acceptable.

I can start working on char no 2 if you like? Or I can wait and see if we get more interest? Up to you.

Re: Shades of Life

If you want to that'd be great! So long as nobody takes girl or guy 1, we just have two roles to fill. Only one if you want to take one!!! That'd be great!

Re: Shades of Life

If need be I'm happy to take on a second character.

Re: Shades of Life

Yes you can!!! That's such a perfect FC and job! I love him! Yes you're accepted. :)

Spread the word everyone! I think a few more characters (at least 2) and we can play!!!

Re: Shades of Life

Hullo. c: Could I reserve Male # 2?

FC: Darwin Gray | Hexcode: #A7A400 | Occupation: Shopkeeper at Sundog Books

Re: Shades of Life

He's yours! Thanks! Spread the word of you can! Can't wait to work with you!

Re: Shades of Life

Hi there,

This roleplay looks really interesting.

Please may I reserve Male 5 FC Alex Pettyfer and hex code #006d67. He's a rich tourist so no occupation.

Image

Thanks

Re: Shades of Life

      Hello! May I reserve female 2 with the FC: IU? I don't know what her name would be but her hex code would probably be #961c3b or some variation of maroon.

      Thank you! ^^


      Image

Re: Shades of Life

Could I possibly reserve Girl 1, her face claim would be Sky Ferreira and her hexcode #99182C, please. I'm not sure the name yet but I'll start on my character sheet soon after you respond. Her role would also be a local.
