    It's the holidays! Whether you celebrate something or not, December tends to vary on the busier side of the year. Busiest, most likely. With people scrambling from store to store gathering presents for loved ones, then people running from house to house congregating to celebrate whatever holiday they choose to celebrate. Regardless of creed, color, or class, many often settle down for the beginnings of winter to appreciate the ones around them or to get away from the stress of the world.

    For the residents of Chicago, the beginning of December signifies the start of one of the most hectic parts of their adult lives before allowing themselves the time to slump away from the world. For teenagers and college students, December usually means throwing everything in the closet, locking it shut, and letting all that stress of finals and grades melt away. For children, well, for children it means presents!

    For you, well, it honestly depends: whether you intend to visit family; get that last minute shopping done; find that one person you love; scramble for a date to show your parents you aren't a lonely hobo; dread the arrival of siblings; or lock yourself away from the world. And whatever you celebrate, it doesn't matter because everyone's coming together in one way or another.

    It's the holidays.

    What are they for if not the miracle of humanity itself? To maybe do good for a month. Or perhaps to find unity within one another. To find a family, regardless of blood.

    The idea behind this particular RP would be akin to something like Love Actually or the multitude of multi-character romantic comedies out there (Valentine's Day, New Years). Love Actually is the closest one just because it's based near Christmas—maybe even Death at a Funeral if you're feeling particularly cheeky. It'll essentially surround a group of people—how many I don't know yet—that are somehow interconnected with each other by some means, regardless of creed or culture or religion or what have you (on that note, please no arguments regarding religion or politics, as this is meant to be a lighthearted roleplay). That would take some OOC collaboration on our part, but connecting our characters shouldn't be hard to do. And if anything, I'll throw in some hoops plot wise to get people together in some fashion, so no one's left out. I wouldn't be a GM if I didn't otherwise.

    I really wanted a modern roleplay that wasn't set in a High School or Academy because there are plenty of those. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with them, I'm just in too many of them, at the moment, and I'm feeling something broader, in a sense.

    If anyone is confused as to where this is set: the area is Chicago (whether that's the suburbs outlying the city or the city itself is entirely up to you) present time, so the end of 2015, going into 2016. I don't have a set ending to the RP, so it could very well go past the end of Kwanzaa (which is January 1st) and start into New Years and maybe end on Valentine's Day, who the hell knows? That is, if anyone here is celebrating that. I didn't want to narrow it down to just Christmas because there are plenty of amazing holidays out there. That's something I'm willing to talk about, though, because if it's easier for everyone to follow, then I'll limit it to one holiday. I'll put which holiday up to a vote, though.

    1. All Iwaku rules apply!
    2. Anything sexual is permitted, but I do ask that if you do engage in sexual content to fade to black and take it to conversations. I simply don't want anyone getting in trouble regarding things like age and stuff. So pay attention to those stars, folks.
    3. Keep language mild. Don't go overboard.
    4. Make your characters three-dimensional; no Mary Sues/Gary Stus and the like. In the miscellaneous section of your character sheets, put in the word banana and make it look fancy.
    5. I'd label this a romantic comedy, so, uh, keep things realistic.
    6. An extension of five: don't be too dark, since this is a lighthearted roleplay. Tragic backstories are fine, but don't make that the core of your character.
    7. Don't speed post. Keep at least 2-3 people between your posts. If two characters are having a conversation, take it to PMs, combine all that dialogue into one post and have one of you post it.
    8. My word is law, so please adhere to it. If not, I'ma give you a warning. I'll give you two before I boot you.
    9. This is intermediate, so I do ask that each of you have a basic grasp of the written language. Quality over quantity, but I doubt you can give a quality post with one sentence, so keep it above 5 sentences per post.
    10. I do ask that, at the top of your post, you tell us where your character(s) is/are and to tag the players they're interacting with.
    11. You can have as many characters as you'd like, but if I were to put a cap, then 4 is reasonable (I'd count entire families as one character. I ask that characters below 14 be attached to a family). There's no real cap, so you can go over 4 if you think you can handle it.
    12. Have lots of fun and be nice to each other. If you have anything offensive to say, I'd kindly like you to keep your shit to yourself. I won't tolerate douchebaggery.

    So here's the character sheet. I ask that you use all of the sections I provided, but you can detail them however you want. I just need to know these particular things. I also don't care what you add onto it.

    Tell me if I'm missing anything.

    Gender

    Sexuality

    Occupation

    Physical Appearance
    You can break this up into height, weight, eye color, etc. if you so choose or lump it all together into one paragraph. I personally like to put things like dress wear and stature and how they move and speak here.


    Distinguishing Features
    What stands out. This can be eye color, freckles, blemishes, scars, tattoos, etc. They don't have a leg? That information goes here.


    Ethnicity
    Where are they from? Are they Chinese Americans or are they immigrants with a family directly from China? Are they Jewish, German, French? Be reasonable here, though. It's pretty much the things that stand out the most. So if they're 1/18th Cherokee, that's not really something that's all too important in this section. Maybe a nice tidbit of info you can express in the IC, but keep this thing to the two main ethnicity that fully represents them.


    Holiday
    What they celebrate during December, be it Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, what have you.


    Family

    Friends

    Boyfriend/Girlfriend

    Other Relationships
    Anything from coworker to boss to family friend to enemy or fellow student. Whatever you feel.


    Location
    Where they currently reside in Chicago. I ask that you keep this near South Side Chicago. Look at a map! I research all the time; it's a part of writing. Keep in mind that this denotes your character's class and wealth. If they live in Hyde Park, it's likely that they're rather wealthy, affluent individuals.


    Here's some help: South Side, Chicago

    That'll give you a run down on which areas would likely house who. It's not the most necessary thing, but I'd like to keep things realistic.

    Personality
    Do give me at least one paragraph. If you prefer to list things off, then you can, but I'd ask that you give me a run down of each listed personality trait. They don't have to be a paragraph each, but if I were to combine each section, then I should be able to consider it a paragraph or more.

    Aspirations
    What do they want out of life? This can be long term or short term in relation to their goals.


    Biography
    At least two paragraphs of what their life has been like and where they're at now.


    Miscellaneous
    Anything that can't fit into the other sections. This is where you put random tidbit about your character. Are they allergic to shellfish? Do they have any pets? Did they do anything you'd like to specially note here, such as touched Beyonce's foot at a concert?


    S E C O N D A R Y
    C H A R A C T E R S


    This is pretty much for characters that are associated with one of your characters, but isn't integral to the plot enough to merit an entire character sheet. Use this if you have no intentions of making family members actual characters, but do still intend to use them. Also, use this for any character under the age of 14. They're essentially NPCs that only you control.

    This can literally be as long as you'd like it to be. If you prefer to list things, you don't have to describe how that relates to how they act.

    Because it looks weird without it.

    That's everything! :D Please, feel free to ask me any questions or what have you. Or just chat. I don't care. I like to do that. Chatting is fun and awesome. Yes!

    And feel free to give me suggestions. I don't bite. Like. Unless you want me to? I dunno.

    Also, I haven't seen Love Actually, so you don't need to watch shet to know what to do. Well, maybe you should have a solid grasp of romantic comedies, but other than that, no, nothing required, really. I've watched so many rom-coms it hurts, though. Jesus.

    If anyone wants to be my Co-GM, who knows, I may accept your offer. It depends, though. I might not pick one until a little later.

    Oh, and just so everyone knows, if they're gonna read through this whole thing, that, while I did set the homes of each character to be in the South Side of Chicago, that's definitely not going to be the only place we're allowed to go. You can venture anywhere within Chicago and it's outskirts, if you so wish. I'll probably be basing things in surrounding areas to get everyone close together, though. Such as a mall or Navy Pier or Chicago's Magnificent Mile and the surrounding Michigan Avenue or Millennium Park, where the Bean is.

    Name
    Lishan Solomon
    Alias/Nickname
    Li
    Age
    21
    Gender
    Female
    Sexuality
    Pansexual
    Occupation
    Owner of a coffee shop called EthniciTea
    (Her shop sells a variety of foreign beverages and pastries)
    Physical Appearance
    Lishan is 5'9" and weighs about 155 lbs, although she usually appears a bit taller because she prefers to wear heels. Her eyes are dark brown and she tends to wear metallic and somewhat bright colored make up, to make them 'pop'. She also likes to wear dark red lipstick because she was once told by an ex boyfriend that the color intimidates him and that she should stop wearing it, so of course, she kept wearing it (and broke up with his punk ass). Her hair is short, black, relaxed and usually combed into a nice style.
    Lishan walks with a sense of purpose, and always holds her head up high, but that's mainly because whenever she slouched when she was younger, her mother used to smack her on the spine with a ruler. Lishan also speaks very clearly and never uses slang because she likes to be understood right off the bat (also because her mother used to pluck her when she mumbled and slurred her words.)

    Distinguishing Features
    Lishan has a slender neck like a swan and she doesn't have her left pinky. (No, that was all her and had nothing to do with her mother. Lishan was a very curious kid who snuck into her dad's garage and tried to use a power tool even though she was told not to.) Lishan usually doesn't cover her pinky-less hand, but if she needs to she will wear a glove with a piece of plastic in the pinky part.

    Ethnicity
    Lishan is Ethiopian. She was born in Ethiopia and her family moved to Iowa when she was fifteen.

    Holiday
    When her parents are in town she celebrates nothing because they're Jehova's Witnesses and they think she is still one too.
    When they're not around, Lishan celebrates nearly everything recognized in America. For the winter holiday's she celebrates, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and New Year's.

    "There's something about Masterson dogs that my dog likes..."

    Location
    Grand Boulevard
    She has a nice and cozy studio apartment above her shop.

    Personality
    Lishan is the type of person to keep to herself and mind her business unless she knows you and is close enough to you that she worries about your life and well being. She's very responsible when it comes to making relatively large decisions or decisions concerning her business. However some things she tends to run away from and she'll never look back if she has to. If something makes her uncomfortable she'll skirt around the subject or avoid it completely if you let her. Due to her strict upbringing, Lishan can never be completely care free, and must always have a back up plan for everything she does. She never heads into the thick of things without going over her options and the possible results of whatever she is participating in. That being said, she doesn't have anxiety, she just likes to be prepared.

    Biography
    Lishan was born in Kombolcha, Ethiopia, to Hassan and Ayanna Solomon. Growing up, Lishan had a relatively close relationship with her father, but from the moment she was born, her mother was dissatisfied with her. The reason for that being that during Lishan's birth there were complications and she was born with MRKH and has no uterus. Her mother was extremely upset and ashamed, although she never said this outright. Lishan's father had no problem with this, but Ayanna warned him to keep quiet about Lishan's condition because of how the community might react.

    As she grew up, Lishan's mother strictly raised her to be a 'perfect' girl. Lishan never understood why until she reached the age of puberty and never got her period. The reveal of her condition didn't bother Lishan, as she wasn't interested in having a child in the first place. When she shrugged off the big news, her mother became even more enraged and began to distance herself even more. Their relationship became even more strained when Ayanna's brother died and his daughter, Semira came to live with them. In Ayanna's eyes, Semira was the perfect daughter and began to treat her as such. This angered Lishan, so she began to spend more time with her father in retaliation.

    At that time her father was an architect who's only work involved giving advice to people who wanted to build their homes in other places, so he wasn't making much money and he was starting to get depressed, so he greatly enjoyed his daughter's company. However, one day when her father wasn't around, Lishan wandered into his garage and started messing around with some power tools. A sudden sound startled her, and she lost her grip on the machine and it severed her pinky from her finger. Her father rushed her to the hospital, but it was impossible to reattach the digit, so she was left with nine fingers. Her mother was horrified at the thought that if she had been spending more time with Lishan, she wouldn't have even been near the garage, and she tried to mend their relationship, but Lishan was past that and refused her mother's attempts.

    A few months later, Lishan's father got a job request in Des Moines, Iowa and jumped at the chance to show his skill. He was unwilling to leave his family alone however, so the Solomon's (along with Semirat) traveled to Iowa. Lishan's father showed his vast creative skill on the job and got offered a permanent job at an architectural firm. He accepted and the family became permanent residents of Des Moines.

    Lishan enjoyed her new life and Des Moines, and unlike her mother and cousin, she took to the new environment immediately, learned the language within three months and made numerous friends. She joined a bunch of clubs in high school and graduated with a B average. After graduation she wasted no time and applied to several colleges and got accepted to the University of Iowa. She majored in Business and marketing and when she graduated from their, she stayed at home for a few months before going in search of a great place to start her brain child, EthiniciTea.

    Somehow, she winded up in Grand Boulevard, Chicago and never left. Her family visits sometimes and she hates every second of it. (Well except for the part with her dad, but she can't stand her mother and cousin.)

    Miscellaneous
    Lishan's very best friend in the entire world is her dog, General Tso. He was a stray when she found him and he was tied up behind a Chinese carry out, and a very angry carry out owner was screaming at him and threatening to live up to Asian stereotypes and eat him, because the dog had broken into the shop and eaten a large pan of General Tso chicken.

    Lishan at first resolved to call the police, but she worried that the police wouldn't get there quick enough, so she intervened and started snapping pictures of the guy. She threatened to send the images to a humane society and bring the shitstorm that came hand in hand with PETA down on him. The guy retreated with a few choice words in her direction, and Lishan approached the terrified dog. At first, the dog snarled and snapped at her, but when Lishan cut the rope that the was around the dog's neck, he relaxed and allowed her to take the rope off completely.

    Lishan coaxed the dog into her car and drove him to a nearby animal hospital. She was going to leave him there after paying the bill, but after the vet informed her that since he wasn't a puppy, he probably wouldn't get adopted so they'd have to put him down, she freaked out and that was the day she adopted a dog.

  5. Definitely considering this one.
     
  6. Awesome looking forward to all the characters ;D

    I did forget to mention that the secondary character sheet is optional. I like the idea cause I get character crazy and tend to make glorified NPCs. Use it only if you feel like.

    Also, the application may seem a little on the long side but I'm not a stickler so you don't have to go ham crazy on every section. I just need enough info to get the gist of what you're character is like.

  12. As an Asian, I find that very, very hilarious. I joke about things like that so intensely it hurts.

    Regardless, I love Lishan! She's definitely accepted. I can see her little shop on the corner as being a big spot for characters to connect. :o Her mamas gonna make things very difficult come the holidays.

    Sheridan is artistic and creative. She loves to draw and write. She is very serious when it comes to her daughter, not allowing Bianca to make the same mistakes as her. Though Bianca is five years younger than Sheridan when she fell pregnant, Sheridan restricts her daughter's access to parties and boys and has enforced a curfew of eight o'clock. Sheridan, though often hard of money, is insisted on not borrowing money from anyone, even her brother. She works like a soldier eight hours a day, six days a week. On her one free day per week, Sheridan likes to work on her art and spends time with her daughter. She often invites her brother over for dinner. Sheridan is an optimist and refuses to allow the stress and responsibility of her situation get to her.

    Aspirations
    Sheridan aspires to make money from her art. She wants to make enough money to support her daughter through college. She wants to see Bianca live the frivolous life she did not.
    Biography
    As a teenager, Sheridan was bright, outgoing and social. Then, at a party when she was sixteen, she had a little too much to drink and was taken advantage of. She fell pregnant and never knew who the father of her baby was. When Sheridan found out she was pregnant, she told her conservative, Christian parents and was immediately kicked out. Her parents claimed she committed a horrible sin and did not deserve to live in their home.

    Alone, Sheridan pulled all of her savings from her bank account and bought the tiny apartment she still lives in. While pregnant, Sheridan worked non-stop, bringing in all the money she could, because she knew she would need quite a lot of savings for maternity leave.

    Sheridan gave birth to Bianca in the September she was supposed to start senior year. She didn't work for six months, while Bianca was an infant. She started hiring a babysitter while she worked, until Xander finished high school.

    Sheridan had not heard from her family since she moved out. In the summer holidays after her brother's senior year, Xander stayed in her apartment. He had told her he had turned his back on their parents' religion, and he was devoted to making sure she was okay. He bought an apartment on the same floor as Sheridan, and for the last twelve years as acted like a father figure for his niece.

    Bianca lives in a small apartment in South Side. (See Sheridan's skeleton).
    Personality
    [​IMG]
    Bianca is fun-loving and spontaneous. She does, however, know when to not cross the line in her fun and mischief. Bianca has an incredibly close relationship with her mother. She greatly respects Sheridan's self-sacrificing demeanor: she realises her mother could have given her daughter up at any time, but knows Sheridan would never do that. Bianca is also close to her Uncle Xander, who is essentially her father. Though Bianca never met the man, Bianca harbours a severe hatred for her biological father.


    Bianca is an athlete. She plays basketball, netball, tennis and volleyball for her school, scraping together the funding for her sports by working odd jobs in the neighbourhood and sometimes working little hours at the coffeehouse her mother works for. She is still quite a girly girl. Bianca is intelligent but can often be too lazy to complete her schoolwork. She often needs an extra push from her mother to complete her work.

    Bianca met Georgia in first grade. They have been pretty much inseparable ever since.
