I'm looking for someone to play Marco in my story The Sweetest Courtesan.
Set in Venice in the 1500s, this story explores how a culture of hedonistic excess and strict social boundaries affect a young couple from different classes who fall deeply in love. Isabelle Denapoli grew up as the youngest daughter of a Venetian nobleman. She has a curious and adventurous spirit which often causes her to flaunt convention and do as she pleases. Though her family has little money, she becomes great friends with the children of the most influential family in Venice--Maria and her older brother Marco. Marco leaves home to serve in the army as a teen, and when he returns his relationship with Isabelle changes. They quickly fall in love, but soon separate when they realize they cannot marry because of the difference in their stations.
Isabelle is miserable and angry, and her grief is only compounded when her father died. Fearing financial ruin, her mother tells her she must become a courtesan, believing that Belle's natural charm and undeniable beauty would provide a good living for the family. Though she is resistant at first, as she hears more news about Marco's upcoming wedding she begins to embrace the life of a courtesan, and eventually becomes the most desired woman in all of Italy.
When Marco returns from his travels to find his friends and peers receiving Belle's sweet attention, when all he receives is her anger, he vows to win her love again, no matter the cost.
That's a general outline of how I want the RP to go, but if it ends up going in a different direction, that's totally cool.
PM me if you're interested!
