Began this as a one x one search, but changed my mind. I am only looking for three others - so four of us total. I'd like to keep this small in terms of players. Characters can be many. If you didn't guess by the title, the Kids Aren't Alright by the Offspring inspired me. Years ago. So I hope I can finally get this going. I'd very much like to sort out details with the group based on characters. I'm looking for equal partners, not to be a lord of the story. So here goes: ------------------ Small town, used to be a nice suburban neighborhood. There were a lot of kids from good families and they ran around like the kings and queens of Suburbia. There were dramas and loves and hates, nothing unusual. Today, the streets of the old neighborhood look much different. New people have moved in, but most of those kids remained. The kids who had everything to gain from their dreams and yet didn't quite make it. ------------------- If you know the song, what I have in mind is similar. Most of the kids grew up and just didn't go anywhere. Had a kid or two, have died, are addicted to something, got stuck in bad relations. Whatever you want. I would like there to be one character who was successful and has just come back. He/she hasn't been in contact with old friends, so everything will be different than they remember, most importantly the people. I think it would be good for all of us to talk about past and present relationships with each other. This will very much be about how people change. Notes :: I'd like for all first characters to be mid twenties at least. If we decide to add a teen or some older people later, that's fine. But our first characters should be from this main group that grew up together. This will be character driven, which means we need to talk about what we want and foresee. Please be active in discussion, even if the posts grow far between. (hopefully not!) I mean, come in and complain about your day in real life nothing-to-do-with-the-story, just be present. I feel like this story will be a magnet for solid-through sob-stories. Don't do that to me. Don't be generic. Be 3-dimensional. Be cloudy with a chance for sunshine. Write here if you're interested and then we'll talk details and preferences. If you want, let me know anything you're thinking about potential characters or goings-on. Or questions, I can do answers.
