  1. The Wanderer
    Drugs. Sex. Party. Repeat. This was the lifestyle of 18 year old Logan Price, a young musician traveling about big cities with his band, Revenge of The Misfits. They weren't necessarily all that popular, but they got invited to little run down joints to play all over in different cities, so it was the beginning of something big for them. Logan was the founder of this band, bringing it together with his vocals and skill with the guitar a couple years back. Some would say his life took a turn for the best, but... they couldn't be more wrong. Logan was a mess. He was a near alcoholic, a complete drug addict, a total jerk to his bandmates and whoever he seemed fit, and was only getting worse. He didn't believe in love, and merely gave in to one night stands to those he felt deserved his time. Logan was going out of control, and heading down a scary and life taking path. So, who would learn to control this wanderer?

    Hi! I'm Tart, and this little idea popped into my head out of nowhere, so I'm going to put it to good use. Below I'll list some rules, Logan Price's sheet, and provide a character sheet for you to fill out; male character, please! Once I read through your character's sheet and I choose to accept it, we will continue on to talk about further details and what not. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read this!

    R U L E S

    1) Please, don't use text talk.
    2) Don't expect our characters to magically fall in love in a single day! It takes time for people to do so, and this isn't a fairy-tale.
    3) I expect you to respond at least 3 times a week. If you know for a fact that you can't do so, don't sign up. I understand you have a life of your own, I do too, but when you sign up for these things it requires dedication, hm? Besides, inactivity leads to a dead roleplay. I do however understand if you're on vacation or sick and can't respond sometimes, but please give me a heads up!
    4) No one liners.

    Method of handling anger: he bites his lip and taps his fingers on a table [or any flat surface], if he can he'll play with a puzzle cube to get his mind off of whatever angered him

    Fears: he's terrified of airplanes and dislikes motored vehicles. He refuses to ride public transport and only allows certain people to drive him places. While he knows how to drive and has a license, he hates driving himself. He'd rather ride a bike or walk.

    Robert grew up in a lower-middle class area where he often wore second hand clothes. He is the son of two immigrants and grew up speaking a mix of Italian [Mother] and Spanish [Father], while in school he spoke English. In middle school he first encountered Mrs. Poleski. She encouraged him to pursue music. In her youth she played the French Horn and taught Robert how to play. When he graduated high school, she gave him her instrument since she didn't have any need for it. Robert's father left them when he was in middle school for no concrete reason, but Robert suspected cheating. Robert wanted to go to college, but due to his mother's failing heath he began to play music on the streets. When he was old enough he worked whatever jobs he could find to help bring money into the household. When she died, Robert was 20 and went to live with his first cousin Samantha in the city. After earning enough money he got his own apartment, but still worked for her. She's the only family he has left and is rather close to her. At the moment, he keeps a rather low profile as he still performs as a street musician, but also makes good money by accepting any jobs requiring a French Horn player. He works in the recording studio as a sort of secretary, scheduling and arranging for artists to come in and record. Because of he's extremely meticulous when it comes to schedules, he never double books anyone and always ensures that the business is running smoothly.

    [[I was thinking that the two could meet when trying to schedule a recording session. Maybe Logan's band manager knows Samatha which allows the band to come in for an extended period of time or something. Also, I was thinking that Robert was looking for a roommate for his apartment and something happens where the two end up living together. I'm spitting out ideas. Reply back if interested.]]

  3. Ahh, I adore your character haha! And I know Logan doesn't have a back story on his character sheet, but I plan on adding it in there in a bit when I get some open time. I love the ideas you put forth, and I think they'd work out nicely. In fact, the first one was along the lines of something I wanted to do. Here in a bit I can make the IC thread and write out an opening starter so we can get this thing on the roll. I look forward to roleplaying with you! @abalint
  4. Thanks I'm really excited about doing with you as well. ATM I'm on vacation, so my posts will be at strange times of day. Anyways, I can't wait to start!

  6. Sounds good. I can't wait.
