New York, New York
« on: November 26, 2018, 12:36:07 PM »

Alright, so I don't know if this RP will actually go anywhere, but the idea hit me, so here we go:

It's 2007, and a group of 20-something's are living in New York. What would become known as a huge financial crisis was only just beginning (so it's like late June/early July), but our lovely little group is blissfully unaware as they try to make ends meet in the city of dreams. To save time in the beginning of the rp, I want to say that they all know each other (sort of) because they live in the same apartment building in Manhattan.

I'm gonna say this RP is cross vibes of reality and FRIENDS, so have at it.

Haha, glad you're excited and on board!

If it makes it any more helpful for picking era-appropriate names, the years of birth range from 1977-1987 :P

Name: Autumn Krystal Moon
Age (20-30): 22 (born 1985)
Career: Autumn came to New York City after being published for writing an autobiography about what it was like growing up off-grid, the child of hippies. While the book was moderately successful in the town she had been living in at the time of its publication, she believed she could have a bigger break as an author in the Big Apple. This hasn't panned out thus far, as she now works in a coffee shop to make enough money to get by, but she still believes that she'll make it as a full time author one day.
Appearance: green eyes and auburn-brown straight hair that she usually keeps tied back in a ponytail and secured with a headband as well.
Personality: being the only child of a pair of flower children, Autumn's views can sometimes be a bit odd. She's well spoken and writes well, but due to her being in and out of regular school and homeschool, she's sometimes missing information when it comes to history and politics and just stuff in general. She's quirky and artsy and a fun person, but also sometimes struggles with social cues because of her weird upbringing. She's also a vegetarian, a result of her parents' teachings about respecting all life.
Skills: general arts stuff, writer
Other: she's more grounded than her parents. When she was old enough, she went to college for a diploma in writing, and moved away from her parents, as they had decided to be homeless, and she wasn't interested in that style of life.
