CLOSED SIGNUPS Stranded and Alone

Discussion in 'GROUP RP PLOT INFO & SIGNUPS' started by kiscokids123, Oct 2, 2016.

  1. "Now Boarding for Flight 80216."

    It seemed as if it was going to be a perfect flight. There was no turbulence, no crying toddler in the back of the plane, and no slob sitting next to you, leaning over you to grab more snack-sized pretzels. You were flying from Shanghai to New York, with a sure or unsure reason behind it. As you get comfortable for the long flight, you notice something feels different this time. Perhaps it's the new flight attendant uniforms which looks like something pulled from the 1960's, or the large televisions playing smooth jazz. You shrug it off and pull the shade over your window, closing your eyes and nodding off.



    Screams and a jolt wake you from your slumber.

    Stranded and Alone is a roleplay that can go anywhere. We are looking for people who are adaptable enough to change plot lines and introduce twists and turns but still create solid characters and stories. Our writing styles are varied, from a few sentences to paragraphs. I ask that you write what you are comfortable with, but keep in mind the feelings of others and the fact that others have to respond to your post to keep the story going. The main rule is to just have fun with this and go crazy (but not too crazy ;))!



    Rules

    - Be aware of the feelings of others
    - Write what you feel comfortable with, either length or story wise
    - Don't create Mary or Gary Stu's
    - Try not to overpower others
    - Try not to say no (this is a version of improv in some ways :))
    - Have a fun and awesome time with new and old friends!

  2. Name: Bernadette Herrick
    Age: 23
    Nationality: American
    Socioeconomic Level as a child: Upper Class (top 1%)
    Socioeconomic Level as an adult: TBA
    Hometown: New York City, but the family was constantly traveling, so she never really had anywhere she could call, "Home."
    Current Residence: Paris, France
    Occupation: Part-time EMT and part-time student at local university
    Income: TBA
    Talents/Skills: Bernadette speaks fluent French, Spanish and Mandarin, as well as the ability to read Latin. She dances, both ballet and ballroom, and is adept at all things "ladylike." Can argue until the cows come home as well. Has a few secret abilities up her sleeve, but I will save those for later ;)
    Birth order: The third child in a family of four
    Siblings (describe relationship):
    Toulouse, 30: a distant but loving(ish) relationship with Bernadette, Toulouse left the house at sixteen to attend boarding school, after which he went to school to become a successful lawyer and now resides in New York City with his wife, Anne, 22, and has a baby on the way.
    Frederick, 25: Bernadette's childhood playmate, Frederick is a shy and introverted man who adores all forms of art, especially paintings, but has a harsh relationship with most of his family members. Traveling the world visiting every art museum he comes across, Frederick is always welcoming of Bernadette's company.
    Camille, 20: Bernadette's kid sister, as spoiled and bratty as a rich girl can be. Camille is used to being pampered and adored, and has never worked a day in her life. Bernadette and Camille always butted heads as children, since they both had to fight for the attention of their mother as her favorite daughter. Camille is currently on a year-long trip around Europe with her girlfriends, paid for by Mr. Herrick.

    Significant Others (describe relationship): Franklin O'Toole, 29: Bernadette's fiancee, a wealthy aristocrat's son who enjoys polo and fine wine. A bore to be around but altogether handsome and educated, he works at a prestigious law firm with Bernadette's brother Toulouse. Bernadette has mixed feelings about him, while he has very solid feelings about her and her role in his life.

    Relationship skills: Bernadette has difficulty keeping relationships, and finds most of them shallow and unfulfilling. To be fair to her, though, most of the people she has known for most of her life were egotistical socialites, as well as arranged boyfriends and a fiancee chosen by her mother. She did not have many friends growing up, and because of it has a few imaginary friends she occasionally talks to for companionship.

He is adept at reading people and getting down to the truth. He comes off cold at first, but once he gets to know a person, he is very good at displaying his emotions. Along with this, David is hyper observant, picking up on things the average eye wouldn't notice. His firearm skills are very developed, and finally, his stamina and strength are well maintained and built upon.


    Birth Order:
    Oldest of 2

    Skin color:
    White

    Distinguishing features:

    No distinctive patterns

    Disabilities:
    None

    Style (Elegant, shabby etc.):
    Elegant and stylish

    Greatest flaw:
    He lets his emotions get the best of him when he is too invested in a situation and starts off being untrusting of anyone new.

    He hates himself because of certain things that have happened in his past.

    How does Character believe he/she is perceived by others?
    He isn't sure how people feel about him on an emotional level, but he believes that most people see him as a hero (given that a large amount of the people he deals with are the families whose murder cases he has solved.)

    How self-confident is the character?
    He is confident in himself as a person, and it comes off as such; however, that doesn't distract from the fact he still feels negatively about himself.

    Does the character seem ruled by emotion or logic or some combination thereof?
    David is mainly ruled by logic (since his job requires it.) Although, when he DOES let his emotion seep into his decision making, usually when he is too invested in the situation, logic goes flying out the window and he goes more off of instinct and pure emotion.

    She was raised Methodist, but consider's herself non-denominational

    Is religion or spirituality a part of this character's life?
    Moreso with her family than individually, but when the thought occurs to be spiritual, or need help, she'll ask for it.

    If so, what role does it play?
    She'll got to church on the big holidays or a Sunday randomly if she feels like it. She prays for things she wants and forgiveness of her bigger wrongdoings, and sometimes reads her bible when the mood strikes her.​

  11. Halfway through writing my first post, but I keep getting interrupted. It'll go up eventually, though. But fair warning, I'm not going to be around much this weekend (or the one after). Hoping to have it up tonight or tomorrow morning before I leave :)
     
  12. Thanks for letting me know and that's totally fine :) Hope you have fun wherever you're going!
     
  13. Is this going to run by turns(like everyone posts in the same order/we wait for everyone to post before we post again), and if so how many people still need to post?
     
  14. No, when we get started it will be a first-post, first-serve kind of thing I think. If you're on, you can post and move your character/the story along, but I wanted to give everyone a chance to post their first post before we actually start it i.e after the plane crash, and I believe we are only waiting on KatherinWinter. Thanks for being patient, I know we've had a slow start but hopefully we'll gain some momentum soon
     
  15. Sorry for making everyone wait. I will make a post now.
     
  16. Not a problem! The first few days of an rp are always a bit slow but I'm sure it'll pick up :)

    With sadness?
    One bourbon, one scotch, and one beer. He tends to drink when he's feeling low.

    Is the character generous or stingy?
    Archaeo won't just hand out his money at the tip of a hat, no. He'll buy dinner, he'll handle the grocery shopping, he'll get whatever it is you desire. But he won't just hand you money, since he knows that it could go to lesser use.

    Is the character generally polite or rude?
    Generally, he knows to hold his tongue, hold the door, and say please and thank you. He'll always look you in the eyes when an important topic is discussed, and sits up straight. His elbows are never on the table.
