The Fall Downs (OOC)
Chicago wasn't kind to some. That was the case for this particular group of friends. After a group meeting the young people decided to form The Fall Downs. They soon became quite good, and deicided on impulse to buy a dusty bus and tour across the country. Will drugs, alcohol, and sex tear apart the friends?
1.) Please be literate. I assume you all know this though. We are in the casual forum.
2.) Please try to write 1-3 paragraphs on average. I know this isn't always possible but please try.
3.) If you have to go M.I.A for awhile, let everyone know so we can work around you. Don't just leave everyone hanging. After a certain period of time, I will assume that you are no longer interested and search for a new player to fill your place.
4.) Be considerate. This is more directed to here, in the OOC.
5.) Be mature please. As mentioned in the opening, there will be drugs, sex, and alcohol. Which often leads to violence. So if you are uncomfortable with any of those things then this is not the RP for you.
6.) Last, but not least of course, try to have fun with it!
I will need five people for this. First come first serve. I will be lead vocalist. Positions needed are the following:

Here is my CS:
Name: Ana Sawyer
Personality/Bio: Ana had always been rebellious. Her mother used to say that she came out kicking and screaming. She was thoughtful to her loved ones, but fuck with one of them, and your ass is grass. She's small, but relentless. Ana works as a barista at a local coffee joint. Things were going okay until the Starbucks moved up the street. They lost a lot of customers, and the tip jar always ended up bone dry at the end of the night. The young woman always had a nice and edgy voice, and her style reflected upon that. The main staple in her closet happened to be leather jackets. The stress from her job made her insane. She could barely afford the tiny studio that she was renting, let alone food and toiletries. Things were beginning to wear at her nerves. That was when, after a particular bad night of wallowing in self pity, Ana decided what she wanted to do. She wanted to be in a rock band. She hung out with mostly musical people, why not give it a shot? So on a whim, she bleached her hair and died the tips red. She and her friends decided to all pitch in and buy a bus. It was shitty, but it ran. Ana knew that this was a huge risk, but she decided to take it anyway. She was always a gambler.
Okay guys. There you go! If you are interested please clearly state somewhere in your post what band member you would like to play.
I'd like to be on lead guitar or, if it is taken, drums. Either or.
Name: Chloe Palmer
Personality/Bio: Chloe was the ideal daughter for any parent. Always mindful of her elders, always asking before leaving the table, and always bringing home spelling tests with an 'A' on them to proudly display on the refrigerator. Teachers struggled to come up with anything negative to say during parent teacher conferences. On her fifteenth birthday her parents gave her the one thing she ever asked for, a musical instrument. Chloe had enjoyed listening to her dad's old records and pretending she was playing along; it was adorable. However, she never really devoted much time to it, instead focusing on maintaining that honor roll status. The eternal good girl even throughout her young adult life. Chloe always dreamed of going to college and then to medschool. It was a dream that never got realized as the scholarship option didn't pan out. Student loans were not on the table, either. To pay her way, Chloe took to busking, performing in parks and at open mic nights at bars and cafes. Anything to earn her way to at least her first year. But that was when she was freshly graduated. Now six years later she is no closer to medschool than she was before. Somewhere in her head she still has the dream but now she would just prefer to keep a roof over her head and keep her nose clean. Not being able to get buy on charity, she has since taken a job at a bookstore. On her off days she can still be found at the park, thanking kind people who drop a few bucks into the jar.
Damn it I noticed the Interest check already had too many people
If someone decided to back out you are more than welcome to join. :-D
And @Fabricant451 You can be whoever you want. Your the first poster.
Name: Davon Williams
Personality AND Bio: Davon has always been a social person. He has a huge sense of humor and he can be very goofy. He stays out of trouble for the most part aside from a few fights here and there, most of which are caused by women. He likes to think of himself as an smooth ladies man and he can be an excessive partier. He grew up in his grandparents house and was raised in a very old school manor. His grandfather was a jazz enthusiast; his grandfather would always tell Davon"If it ain't jazz then it ain't real music." Because of that his grandfather pressured hum into picking the bass when he was 10. So for a large portion of his life the only music Davon knew was jazz because of his grandfather and the occasional rap music that he heard the children around his neighborhood blaring. At 15 he finally heard his first rock song. It was The Rolling Stones' song Doom and Gloom. He quickly fell in love with the newness, the beat, and uniqueness of rock. He work at a rec center and happily quicked in money to buy a old bus and go on tour.
Extra: One of the biggest reasons he agreed to go on tour was for the women and parties
Name: John Simone
Personality AND Bio: Born to a strict conservative Christian family John was generally sheltered from rock music and those who liked it. At school he was always on his own, until on the way to church he turned on the radio and heard ACDC's song 'Highway to hell'. His parents hated it and John saw it as an opportunity to rebel. He became obsessed with rock music and was eager to pick up an instrument. After a few years of arguing with his parents over whether he would be allowed to learn an instrument he gave up. His parents wouldn't let him play "That devil music." As John continued to rebel from his parents, locking himself away with nothing but the music for company. His parents threatened him with military school, an idea that far from enthused John. His parents said "As long as you live under our roof you will live by our rules." So John left, after a day on the streets he saw a notice pinned to a lamp "The Fall Downs, roadie needed." John saw this as just the opportunity he needed, he sold all of his useless possessions at home and put the money towards the bus, his journey had begun.
