Our Colorful Neighborhood


A sandbox roleplay set in Indigo Way, a fictional gayborhood in Chicago. Inspired by the show Queer as Folk.


Rules

  • Given the setting, this roleplay will focus on LGBT+/GSRM individuals. Cisgender, heterosexual characters are welcome, too, but LGBT+/GSRM characters do get higher priority if spots become limited.
  • At a minimum, posts should be 200 words long. For those who need a visual, there's a spoiler at the end of this bullet--it's really not that much. The only exception to the length requirement is when a player needs to excuse their character from a scene for a bit. In addition, players should be able to use proper grammar and spelling, and posts should be written in third person.
    200 words
    Indigo Way is quite the colorful place: over the years, many LGBT people have flocked to this Chicago neighborhood to make it their new home. Here there is little fear of being called an abomination, for everyone is among their brothers and sisters, and mommas and daddies, of the community. Yes, it's become quite the safe haven for many, but, of course, between the hot sex and fabulous times, the residents have their squabbles--friends backstabbing friends, neighbors being too loud at two in the morning, and that bitch at the other end of the bar just stole your girlfriend. And

And
  • Players should post within 7-10 days of when it is their turn to reply. However, it's understandable if real life requires you to take longer. Just let us know and maybe consider allowing whoever you're in a scene with to skip you, if you can't excuse your character with a quick post. If a player hasn't shown any sign of activity within the roleplay in three weeks, their character(s) will be removed.
  • Cross-gendered writing is welcomed here. All players who join are expected to be willing to write with such roleplayers, at least for non-intimate scenes.
  • The roleplay's focus will be on story, so conflict and character development are grand. Having sex scenes for the fun of them is acceptable, but if all you want is sex after sex after sex, this is not the roleplay for you.
  • The roleplay will be placed in non-con for those who want to explore blackmail and coercion. Those who wish to initiate a non-con scene must have written permission from the other player(s), and non-con posts must be tagged accordingly. Also, keep in mind that even though a scene may be non-consensual, a player's offs must still be respected, and if a player wishes to back out of a scene, this too must be respected. Breaking this rule will not be tolerated.
  • Characters should be at least 18 years old and human. Some character ideas should probably be run by me first: business owners, celebrities, and any similar characters that may substantially impact the roleplay or IC world. More likely than not, I will accept such ideas, but it can still be helpful to mention it in advance. A player is permitted to have up to 2 PCs.
  • Again, please respect a person's O/Os. If someone you are interacting with has incorporated an off of yours, please PM them about it. If they refuse, contact a GM. Please also keep in mind that consistently ignoring players' offs is grounds for reporting to Elliquiy's staff.
  • In general, be respectful to the other players. Any conflicts that arise should be discussed, in an adult manner, via PMs. If a resolution cannot be reached, then contact a GM. Passive aggressive behavior will not be tolerated in the OOC.
  • This falls into the category of being respectful, but to be explicit, do not ignore a player's IC post. Characters are allowed to ignore each other, in which case it should be mentioned in the IC post, but players should never do so.
  • Remember that IC posts are just that: IC posts. A character may be homophobic, sexist, or a straight-up bitch, and they may even despise your own character, but ultimately, a player is not their character. Do not take IC posts personally. Inability to separate IC from OOC, in any way, will result in immediate removal from the game.
  • If a player drops from the roleplay and leaves their character stuck in a scene, then that character will become an NPC until they can be removed from the scene by the GM(s) or another player.
  • Barring the above rule, no god-moding or auto-hitting without the other player's consent. On the auto-hitting note, if fighting ever does happen, please be fair and realistic with it.
  • To get the most out of this game, it is greatly encouraged that players plot with one another.
  • If you have any questions or a problem in regards to the roleplay, please contact me either in the OOC or via PM and I will be more than happy to help you.
  • Lastly, as GM, my word goes. I'm reasonable, and some things are open to discussion, but when I explicitly say a decision is final, it should be abided by.

The Neighborhood

Indigo Way, located on the north side of Chicago, is an LGBT community full of various shops and eateries. There are a few apartments, but two in particular are Parker Commons and The Kensington. Parker Commons, tucked off in a southern corner of the neighborhood, offers simpler one- and two-bedroom apartments for a more affordable rate. The Kensington, a luxury high-rise, stands just outside of Indigo Way's northern boundary, closer to the lake.


Characters Thus Far

This is just meant to be a quick reference for those who are interested in joining. I would still recommend reading the character sheets (link below), but here is what we have so far:
  • Author - female
  • Parker Commons Landlord - female
  • Fashion Designer/Waitress/Musician - female
  • Actress - female
  • Modern Dancer - female
  • Future Occult Shop Owner - female
  • Detective - female
  • Yoga Instructor - female
  • Cam-girl, model (porn/nude/art) - female
  • Employee of the Chicago Film Office - mtf
  • Photographer - gender queer/non-binary
  • Tattoo Artist - male
  • Assistant Baker - male
  • Owner of Ordeal, a sex shop - male
  • Mechanic - male
  • British TV Hosts - male

Creating a Business

Some businesses are player-created. Currently, anyone can create a business, though it is encouraged that people fill in spots needed for the others if they want a service or retail job.

Each business must be unique, so no two clothing stores or salons, for example. If a player wants to create a new business, they must supply the following information, perhaps after asking about the idea first:

  • A picture (optional)
  • A blurb: what the business does/sells and what it looks like if a picture isn't supplied. This can be as simple or as detailed as you like, but try to make it no longer than two paragraphs
  • Hours - we will play weekends most of the time, so keep this in mind when choosing the hours
  • If you're playing the owner/manager of the business, will you allow other players to fill in positions? If so, mention any positions you particularly want filled. If any NPCs will be filling any of the positions, list the NPCs' names and positions.

Below is a basic skeleton. Embellishing it is fine.

Code: [Select]
[spoiler=business name][center][img width=300][/img][/center]

Blurb here.

Owner/Manager: Here
Employees:
[list][/list]

Hours:

Asking other players for help or feedback is totally fine, but typing up the information and showing it to a GM will lie in the hands of the person who requested the business.

Biography



Bio: Kat was born in Sicily to an Italian businessman and a small-time fashion designer. It wasn't long after she was born that they moved to Chicago and she even grew up not far from the building she currently resides in. The family had spent many summers either in Sicily or Russia, her mother was Russian. She'd liked Sicily a little bit more than Russia.
       When she was 13, Kat had started helping her mother with the making clothes thing and she really enjoyed it. That's how she'd saved up enough money to buy a car once she was driving age. Her father didn't like it and was always trying to push her to be more interested in his business. He owned a small conglomerate that focused on the entertainment industry. It was how he and her mother had met, she'd been a model/designer before getting pregnant with Kat. The girl had really had no interest in the whole corporate thing and she'd finally proven that she could make an okay living doing what she loved. She'd been taking violin and piano lessons her entire life. Violin since she was 7, piano since she was 5.
    At 16, she'd been allowed to travel to visit both sets of her grandparents alone and while in Sicily she'd met a woman who opened her eyes to the world of love and sex. She'd been devastated when she'd had to leave after an all too brief three months. The next year, while in Russia, she'd met a man who made her feel almost the same things. That was when Kat had realized that she was bi-sexual and after she'd come back home to Chicago, she had come out to her parents. Not long after that, her mother had died and that set the young girl off into a tailspin. She started partying a lot, engaging in risky sex, and worrying her father half to death.
     She'd left home two months shy of turning 19 and had found a home over in Indigo Way. By now, Kat had already made a small name for herself in the fashion industry around Chicago. Not anything too big, just small things for people who could afford custom made clothing and the occasional wedding or bridesmaid dress. She's still waiting for her big break. She waitresses to earn a living but supplements that with designing clothes for people and combining classical violin with electronic music/dubstep for commuters waiting on the train when she has spare time. She enjoys both equally.
Relationships:WIP
Friends: Dmitri Fleming, Brad Stern (roommate)
Enemies:WIP

- Talkative and rambly when excited or nervous.

Biography

D grew up in a poorer neighborhood of Chicago, one where boys and many girls usually ended in a gang or victim of a gang. He managed to avoid too much trouble with gangs and refused to join one.

Early he displayed a talent for art, primarily drawing. He not only had a talent for it but a passion. He could always be found with pencil and paper making all sorts of drawings.

In his early teens he also developed a passion for dance, but living where he did he could not get any formal dance training. He did however find a dojo where he could learn their art if he cleaned up and did other work for the owner and teacher. As he learned martial arts his teacher had him doing all the artwork for the dojo. He enjoyed this as many of the moves and practice was very dance like. The only reason he competed in tournaments though was because his teacher insisted.

At age 16 he developed a crush on a girl about the same age who had recently moved to his neighbor and he went to school with. However before he could express his interest in her life got in the way. On a Saturday evening when he was on his way home from the dojo he spotted her on the street, unfortunately so did three members of the local gang.

They made it clear that she was to “party” with them and they were not going to take no for an answer. When D came to her aid violence ensued. He was out numbered three to one and they were armed while he was not, he however had a couple of years of martial arts training. This training kicked in and in the end the girl ran off and got away. He had been cut across his chest and shot in his left thigh. The three gang members were also down with broken bones. All four young men went to the hospital where one of the three died.

Despite it being gang violence and he had just been defending himself and the girl. He was prosecuted for manslaughter as an adult and found guilty. So at the age of 17 he found himself in a penitentiary with men much older, more mature, and far more hardened. This is where he learned that he could enjoy some bi tendencies as a bottom, he never really got into being the top even when he could, he prefers females for that.

It was in prison that he developed his skill with ink. Somebody saw his drawings and insisted that he tattoo him. It soon became evident that his talent for drawing translated well to tattooing. Once it was learned that he could this his life in prison improved as he suddenly had something other than his young body that the other men wanted.

After doing his time he took the money he got upon his release to buy a used Harley and proper tattooing equipment. He then spent several years basically just on his bike traveling around the country going wherever people gathered that would want ink. He lived frugally saving every dime he could until he could get enough together open his own studio.

He finally reached that point and decided to return to the city he grew up in, just a better neighborhood. After getting his apartment and the small space for his shop  as well the best tattooing and piercing equipment available he has enough money to survive on for a few months. He however is not worried about continued income as he has developed a reputation and much of his work has been featured in some of the magazines. He has also put together a web sight filled with pictures of his work.

Biography

Maggie grew up in the neighbourhood, went to school in the neighbourhood, in fact the only time she left the neighbourhood was to go to university in Madison WI. She returned with a degree, and worked for ten years in various dead-end jobs, some retail, some in real estate, one in a care home that was shut down due to lack of funding, until she found that the apartment complex she had grown up in was in need of a building manager. She applied for and got the job, and immediately set about cleaning up the place, kicking out the squatters and pushers, fixing up the apartments, actually spending the money she was allocated by the owners, rather than just lining her own pockets with it as the previous incumbent had done.

Her father passed away two years ago from lung cancer, one reason Maggie doesn't smoke. Her mother now lives in an old folks home in the neigbourhood. She has a kid brother who joined the navy and spends most of his time in Norfolk VI, is married with two kids and is looking to be promoted from Commander to Captain in the near future.

She's had a number of short-term relationships over the years but is still looking for that one special someone she can settle down with.

Maggie is a no-nonsense person. She doesn't take shit from anyone, especially not her tenants. If you give her grief, she gives it right back! But if you get on her good side she can be the sweetest, kindest person going. She has been known to give people who are struggling a month's rent-holiday if they need it, she is always quick to get things fixed when they break, but woe betide the tenant who deliberately breaks stuff, or simply doesn't pay the rent - especially if they are spending money elsewhere!

She is reasonably tolerant of parties, so long as she gets invited! She turns a blind eye to cannabis being used on the premises, but if she learns that anyone is dealing anything stronger she will put her foot down. She doesn't indulge in weed herself, in fact she doesn't smoke. Her only real vice is a bottle of 12 year old single malt scotch whisky that she replaces whenever it gets emptied. She has a black-belt in Judo.


Relationships

Friends: TBC

Enemies: None, I hope?

Happy Friday, y'all! Anyone have any weekend plans?

Kat looks good! Can't wait to see her in action. Gotta like Ariana Grande, lol.

Loving the bike. :D That purple is perfect. Dmitri's accepted again.

There couldn't have been a better day to rejoin with Maggie, lol.

I might - given that I can come up with a decent enough character idea & concept.
I think that's what you said the first time. :P Let me know if you have any questions or if there's anything I can do to help with anything.

    What kind of dog do you have?

    Ha, that's awesome. That does sound like it would have to match her pretty well.

    Biography
    • Brad was the result of a bump in his parents' marriage. His mother had an affair with another man after her husband admitted to having one. After some counseling, they stuck together, though it seemed it was primarily for their kids, as they divorced a year after Brad started college. He has two brothers, Andrew and Michael, who are seven and eight years older than him, respectively.
    • Brad learned he wasn't "really" part of the family during an argument with Andrew. He was eight at the time. It wasn't until a few years later that he learned the specifics. Over time, he picked up on what made him different from most of his family; his hair and skin were like his mother's, but he swore he got his looks from his biological father, and everyone in his family had green eyes, not brown.
    • Starting seventh grade, he put forth a lot more effort into school and sports, not happy with giving less than 120%. This drive only intensified in high school. Homework took a lot longer; a one-page essay would take hours and it still wouldn't be good enough. The slightest mistake on the football field or on the basketball court would leave him beating himself up for the rest of the night. He joined clubs, started working as soon as he had his license. In junior year, he enrolled in as many APs as possible on top of all of that. No way he could balance it all. It affected his grades. Eventually, his parents convinced him to stop working, and, reluctantly, he minimized the clubs he was in. It made him feel like a failure.
    • That summer, he started therapy for his problems. It was a little rough, but he learned to let go of perfection, enough that his expectations became more realistic and he could function more healthily. By that time, graduation was just around the corner.
    • He started going to the University of Chicago as a pre-med student, but he stuck with it for only a semester. Brad had gotten a part-time job at a bakery. In eighth grade, his dad had started to teach him how to cook (something that became their bonding time for a couple of years), which led him to gain an interest in baking. However, it wasn't until he started working at the bakery that he learned he would much rather do that for a living. He dropped out of University of Chicago and started taking pastry classes. Upon getting his associate's degree, he started working at the bakery in Indigo Way.
    • He moved to Parker Commons when he was twenty-one.

    Biography

    Adam was born in Indiana to a dad who worked in a factory and a mom who waitressed. His brother, Brian, came along two years later. Adam was the rowdy one of the two, always running around and jumping off of things, and sometimes he would try to roughhouse with his brother, much to his displeasure. Brian was more of the sensitive nerdy type. Like a lot of siblings, they had their arguments. It wasn't until Adam was in third grade that they became closer. His brother had a bit of a bully problem, and although their parents suspected, he never admitted to it. It became clear one day at the park when a boy started picking on him. Adam did what just about any older brother would do: he stepped in. He got in trouble for it, but Brian was appreciative, and that was enough for him to develop a protective side toward anyone who couldn't defend themselves.

    Except in high school, when it came to the district's only out gay guy, at least initially. His name was Paul. Adam watched the torment for two years before deciding to do something. The other guys gave him grief for it. They started calling him gay, suggested that he had a thing for Paul. Both were true, but he wasn't ready to admit to either. He started dating a girl who was also a junior, Chelsea, to cover up. That didn't stop him from kissing Paul, though, next year. They had a bit of a fling for a few months that ended after Paul pressured him to come out. He roughed him up for it, and they never spoke again after that.

    By then, graduation was just around the corner, and Adam made the decision that he would join the Marines. Chelsea was still dating him. He made the hasty decision to propose to her and have a quick wedding before he left for basic. And about halfway through his five-year term, his son was born while he was away.

    He couldn't handle it. If being in the military taught him one thing, it was that life was too short. A month after he finished serving, Adam asked for a divorce, and a few months later, it went through. He left the scorn of his family and a son who barely knew him behind and fled to Chicago. It didn't take long for him to become homeless, having no luck holding down a job. Desperate, he started selling his body. It was one client, a regular, that really helped him get back on his feet. He knew the extra money was given out of more than just pity, and even without that knowledge, he hated accepting it, but he still had child support to pay, and he hated being on the streets. Their "relationship" ended when the man couldn't get the true intimacy he yearned for, but by then, between him and his other clients, Adam had saved up enough to afford his own apartment.

    That was when he moved to Parker Commons. He got a job as a dancer at one of the clubs in the area, primarily as a means to have taxable income. He still escorts, and he doesn't see himself stopping anytime soon.

    Oh? I checked her birthday on the previous one but didn't even think to look at her age. It's definitely something that would've been too good to pass up. Her birthday might not have passed too long ago IC, either. We'll probably have the starting month be July. Maybe September. Somewhere in that ballpark.

    You know, I could probably see that, too. She seems like someone who would be pretty badass.

    Not really, no. My characters just happen. I just have to wait until the muse gives me directions.

    I might have this vague idea for a celebrity (a male model), though. But I have to figure out some more because now it's pretty darn shallow.

    Biography

    Until about two years ago, Alejándro was a normal young man, working at a local Gym in San Francisco for a living. Coming from a normal, middle class family, he had lead a rather normal, unspectacular life thus far. His father, immigrated from Puerto Rico was a car mechanic with an own garage, his mother, a born American a nurse at a local hospital. A truly normal, middle class family, like million others.

    That was - until this model scout ran into him. This encounter changed Alejándro's whole life, in a heartbeat. He was approached while doing some workout after his shift, given a business card, with some 'Hey, you're good-looking. Ever considered making some photos?' Go figure - Alejándro thought that it might be a hoax from some friends, and he didn't really take it all quite serious.

    Not until he decided to dial the number on the business card and made an appointment, still thinking it must be some joke, or maybe candid camera. He went there, to this modelling agency, not really thinking much about it.  But hey, he was curious! They took some photos, they set up a portfolio and took him up into their roster, with Sedcard and all, of course. Was a reputable Agency, after all, and not some shady backroom business.

    No three weeks later, Alejándro's phone rang, and on the other end was a male voice, introducing himself as Diego Miguel De La Fuente, telling him that he was a model agent working for a big, reknown agency in Chicago, telling the young man that he had been noticed and, even better, booked! By a European, no less! Some famous, Italian fashion designer came across his portfolio while looking for new, fresh faces - and now he wanted him for a test shooting, and, given that it would go well, as testimonial for his new Spring Campaign. That was....damn. YES! Shit, it was like a rush, and Alejándro agreed. He was euphoric, and even that was an understatement. He was going to be a fucking model. In Europe, no less! He packed his bags, and three days later he was sitting in the plane with Mr. De La Fuente, on the way to Paris, to meet that designer there. Paris, for gods sake. He barely ever had been out of town and now - Paris!

    The campaign was published and this made him famous, overnight, practically. Everyone wanted him. Armani, Calvin Klein, Dior, Chanel, Versace and whoever else with a name in High Fashion. They all wanted him - on their runways, in front of their cameras, on the cover of their magazines and on their billboards. Within the year, there was hardly any magazine that didn't have his face on their covers.

    Despite all the fame, Alejándro likes his friends from the past. He might live in another world now and move in other social circles, but he never forgot where he came from. He bought his parents a bigger, better house in a better area of San Francisco, he helped his father some when he had financial trouble with his business. While he jets around the world, Milan, Paris, Rome, New York, etc., he does like it to come home now and then, but he often doesn't have the time he'd like. But, hey, Instragram, Twitter and Skype are nice to keep in touch with his family!

    Just recently, his agent had acquired a new apartment at The Kensington for him to stay at, because his mother agency, 'Chosen Management' has its headquarters in Chicago.

    It is not a big secret that Alejándro is gay, even if that certainly is not an issue in his line of work, neither in the social circles he moves in. Being a gay man is probably as common as being vain, shallow and beautiful in the fashion world. He rarely speaks about it because that would be like talking about him liking Mexican Food. Alejándro does not flaunt it (because he thinks that it's totally silly). Why should he? It is as much a part of himself as getting up in the morning and reading the newspaper. If some paparazzi or all-too-nosy reporter asks, he usually comes back with something like "Can't we talk about something that's actually interesting?"


    Relationships

    Friends: -pending-

    Enemies: Probably one or the other male model. Tough business, that, and competition is killer.

    Others: His manager and agent - Diego Miguel De La Fuente - A rather well known entrepreneur and model agent


    Additional Details

    Known gossip about Alejándro
    • He is sleeping with a certain Italian designer that made him a star.
    • He is having a relationship with his agent. The Scandal! That man is married, to a woman!
    • He has been in a clinic, twice at least, because of his alcohol problems.
    • He takes a lot of drugs (mostly Cocaine), to stay in shape.
    • He has a whole lot of one-night-stands, especially at After Show Parties, with other models, photographers, etc.
    • He is, apparently, a bitch to work with. High maintenance and all this shit.
