I am itching to do a good old fashion romantic comedy style role play. Specifically something where the two main characters truly don't get along in the start, but low and behold that anger and chaos turns to pure and simple passion. I have a few ideas on what the backgrounds could be, but I am leaning towards something like a high end law firm type deal. Two young up starts with a past end up starting to work for the same big shot consulting firm. A few years back they had a fling while working somewhere else. The guy was a mail boy while the woman was the daughter of some judge working at a summer intern. Things got pretty heavy and then the girl left for a better opertunity which left the guy high and dry.
Now both have their law degree and are just about to start their first week at their tream team law firm. What happens when they find out only a few of the new highers will be allowed to stay on after the end of the first quarter? Well as the two are both proud and competative there are sure to be all kinds of sparks flying in the library and conference room. So who thinks they have what it takes to go toe to toe with me in the courthouse? Really looking for people confortable with high casual to advance type writting and be able to post consistantly. Looking forward to hearing from people.
PS I prefer to do these on a thead and if they go to the more explicit and private scene shift to PM and then back to the thread. Any questions can be asked here and I will answer them. CHEERS!

Ė Coal grew up as the middle child to two sisters. His family lives comfortable, but is very much in the middle of middle class. After graduating from university he spent a year traveling and then returned to the city to use what he learned about himself while traveling to help plan his future. In the end he discovered that law school was the direction he wished to walk and after taking a mailroom job at a large law firm he also began school. While working as a mail boy he ended up falling for the daughter of one of the partners of the firm. He was young so when he fell he fell hard. It was a summer romance which ended when she left for her own dreams of law school. Promises were made to stay in touch and remain close, but after awhile Devin stopped hearing from her. Only after he talked to her father did he find out she had been selected for some advance internship and would not be returning home any time soon.
So with time Devin finally moved on with his life. His hard work and effort paid off and after graduating at the top of his class he finished his education on an exceptionally high note. With his degree earned he finally passed the bar and then headed out into the work force. It wasnít until he found that he was being considered for an entry level position at one of the most prestigious firms in Boston that he started to plan on leaving home. What finally got him to take the extra step was his family whom he had wanted to stay close to, but with their support he packed up his life and flew to Boston. There waiting for him were 80 hour work weeks and hellish bosses. He was ready for it and had been prepared the day he took his first step towards becoming a lawyer. What he didnít suspect was that an old flame was about to be reignited. That is if it doesnít burn him first.
