Looking for Male for 1940's romance ^^
Okay i have a particular theme in mind. I happen to be addicted to 'A Christmas Story' and that time period is one of my favorites. And be forewarned I like to add a little comedy into my characters, and i rarely make a character who is softspoken or easily manipulated. Most of my women do speak their mind. I do not do Mary Sues wo have perfect hair, perfect features and ...well you get the deal ^^
My character is not going to suddenly be taken out dancing and 'glide across the floor as if she were born to it. ' (More likely she'll step on your toes or trip and fall on her butt. ^^)
The theme is slightly cliche, ( Rich Boy has Rich Girl, -who I would also play or you could play or we could both toss her about as we see fit- then boy meets other girl ( my character who works in a busy department store ) while he's shopping for the holidays. Of course there woudl be a happy ending. If I want unhappy endings for anything I'll watch the news on tv =p
This would take place in the period between thanksgiving and christmas.
If interested give a little holler. A polite one remember and either post here or shoot me a pm ^^
I'd love to do one with you. ^^
I was hoping to do a Prohibition Era style rp but I don't think that's ever going to make it to an opening post, but that doesn't mean I've lost total interest, hehe. Bootlegger and Revenue Agent? God... that seemed overdone when they were still plugging that pairing in the fifties.
shot you a pm with more details ^^ feel free to run the prohibition era plot through me too . Maybe we could work something out on that though I'd surely have to do a little research to get a clue on it.
Well my taker disappeared right after taking it lol, so if anyone might be interested in this here's how the first post goes to give you a feel for the idea ^^. It's intended to have humor as well as romance.
"Miss Harper!" comes the bellowing voice which stops the young woman in her tracks at the time clock. Mr. Davis was the manager of the department which she worked and whenever anyone was late, it could be heard throughout the entire store she was sure. And he steps up to the younger woman, looking down his nose at her as he adjust his glasses and looks down at his pocket watch. "Five minutes. I trust you have a good excuse."
"Yes Mr. Davis, I realize I'm late." Victoria let's out a sigh. She was late and she knew it. Though it was only by 5 minutes Mr. Davis was a stickler for punctuality. She'd been there now going on two years and in all that time she'd never been late but once before. It had hardly been her fault. The trolley she took had come off it's tracks 3 blocks before her usual stop and she'd had to hoof it the rest of the way. But even that hadn't been a good enough excuse back then. And now her one wasn't any better. "It could hardly be helped. There was an accident between Broadway and Lexington. It held up the entire block and the trolley couldn't get through.It held up everyone."
"Then you should have taken a cab."
"A cab?!" Victoria squeaks indingnantly as she looks up to the pencil thin man whose neck she'd like to have taken between both hands to throttle him. And she'd no doubt she'd do it quite well. She was a far sight more solid than he. "And you'd like to tell me how I should afford a cab on my wages?"
"Time Miss Harper." He taps at his timepiece before slipping it back into his vest pocket. "Time is tick, tick, ticking away. I suggest you get on the floor before your pay is docked any further." And he turns with an arrogant flip of his head as he leaves the girl shaking the snow from her jacket and mumbling beneath her breath.
"Time is tick tick ticking away." She mocks as she looks out the door after him and sticks out her tongue. "One of these days...just one of these days." What was going to happen one of these days she didn't know but. Something will. And placing her coat away in the employee's locker along with her purse she smooths out her skirt and suit jacket before heading off to the floor. No doubt to deal with any number of annoying customers. How it was she was supposed to automatically know what was the perfect gift for everyone she didn't know. But that seemed to be just what everyone expected.
