Introduction










ImageImage
Messina Fair

Messina, Pennsylvania, is a quaint town full of interesting characters, and the people that visit are just as interesting. It's also home to the annual Sweet Swan Spring Shakespeare Festival, but of course none of the residents are aware of just how similar their lives are to the Bard's stories. This spring promises to be the most exciting yet, with newcomers and repeat visitors alike making roots in Messina from everywhere from the surrounding towns of Padua and Verona to far off lands.

With this many new and returning faces, the long-time citizens of Messina are bound to be shaken up. For some, finishing their play the way Shakespeare intended would be a dream come true. For others, it can only lead to heartbreak.

Will they follow the script or stray from the path?

All the world may be a stage, but this time maybe, just maybe, the players can choose their own ending.


This roleplay is very player driven. You and the rest of your cast mates, so to speak, decide whether your individual story is going to end the original way or completely differently. All I ask is that the characters be an accurate modern reflection of their Shakespearean counterparts.

Fresh off an honorable discharge from the Army, Benedict Page decided to bring his military buddy to visit the town he spent his childhood summers in with a friend of the family.

Now [Beatrice] and Benedict are forced to spend almost all their time together as they follow the young lovers' whirlwind romance.

Re: So Well As You

@Naught: Elijah has been accepted!

@Sunshine and Whiskey: I appreciate you letting me know. I'm sorry you won't be joining us, but I guess that's how it goes.

@Sorella:it would be perfect if you would take Juliet!

@everyone: I'll update the front page as soon as I get on my laptop.

Re: So Well As You

I plan to finish Ophelia soon. Sometime this week. If need be I could always take up Juliet as well. I could probably hammer out a form fairly quickly.

Re: So Well As You

I am so sorry to do this but I think I am going to drop out of this roleplay. I had a muse for a character but then I lost it. I am so sorry to be doing this to you so late but my inspiration has wavered.

Re: So Well As You

I'll have Elijah done by the end of today! Sorry for taking so long. x-x

Re: So Well As You

Awesome! That sounds perfect.

Re: So Well As You

@AlwaysGone: I'm still here as well! School started again for me as well, but I'm getting back into the swing of things. I'll have Hamlet completed soon, and I'd also be willing to take on Romeo if you need that filled. I figured Horatio will interact with Hamlet too much for me to take him, and I don't know Claudio well.

Re: So Well As You

It's alright, thanks for getting in touch! I would be more concerned about how fast you're getting them in if all the roles were filled, but as long as they're coming, I'm happy!

Meanwhile, I'm beginning to fill up NPCs, but the three unfilled characters I don't want to be NPCs are Horatio, Claudio, and Romeo. If anyone wants to double up as one of them or knows someone who might want one let me know. Also, if you have any specific ideas about an NPC from your character's play, feel free to tell me even if I've already put something for that role.

Re: So Well As You

Promise I'm still here. Life and sickness get in the way but I'm still working

Re: So Well As You

Oh god, I am so sorry. I have just been losing track of time. I swear posting will be a lot easier for me to keep up with. Was my first week back to full time classes and needed to be able to adjust. I will try my best to complete my form. Again so sorry.

Re: So Well As You

Sure! He's reserved for you!

Re: So Well As You

I'd love to reserve the Laertes spot with Richard Madden as the face claim :)

Re: So Well As You

It's okay, I understand completely! I'm glad you both contacted me. Your roles are still reserved for you, and I'll take the chocolate chips.

Re: So Well As You

Hey, I am also super sorry for not being around. I've been dealing with some personal problems recently. I will hopefully be done with my character form sometime tomorrow.

Re: So Well As You

I am so sorry but it's been hectic these past couple of days. It snowed in Alabama and some of the roads were closed but I live close to the store where I work, so guess who had to go in and open it up with just one other person? Me! But luckily, some more people came in to help me for the night shift close, which ended early because the roads are freezing over again tonight. :( I've had a crazy, eventful two days. I am still interested in the Juliet role though, if you'll still have me. -Slides a plate of chocolate chips towards AlwaysGone.- :)

Re: So Well As You

The WIPs that I have are looking great! I'd like to get a character submitted from everyone by tomorrow night if at all possible.

Re: So Well As You

Faceclaims accepted, and reserve placed!

Re: So Well As You

Oooh! I would love to take Mercutio from Romeo and Juliet if you don't mind? I will get back with you on the FC!

Re: So Well As You

I'm going to use PJ Liguori for Hamlet if that's alright

Re: So Well As You

I decided on Giza Lagarce as an FC for Beatrice

Re: So Well As You

Benvolio and Hamlet have been reserved!
