Waxing Rhapsodic - Come and explore another you
« on: May 17, 2010, 11:24:31 AM »
A game that has seen its players come and go, we are currently recruiting for new members!

*     *     *     *     *

Walking down the busy street of New York you notice a crowd gathered at the entrance of a gallery. Ugh! As if it weren't crowded enough in the city! Freaking tourists just never know when to move do they? The smallest thing of interest catches their eye...but many times it really is quite interesting...What could it be now? Another Salvador Dali exhibition with his utterly abstract and downright psychotic works of art? Or maybe Louviere and Vanessa with their 'fine photography' as all works are seemingly dubbed these days? Psh modern art..."modern art" was more like it and this one couldn't be any different, could it?

Curiosity overcomes you and you find yourself drawn to the display window along with the rest of the crowd. Pushing your way to the front
disappointment is clearly seen in the features of your reflection. As expected, nothing more than yet another 'photographer' making it big. Same old typical shots of landscape, nature, along with of course the photoshopped versions that land under the 'abstract' category. Big deal. But why is there a sign on the corner of the display stating this exhibit was strictly for people eighteen years or older? What, the demented flower can't be seen by innocent children's eyes because then the parents have to explain that no, flowers do not actually grow in such a twisted way?

As the doors open you find yourself filing in along with the rest, pushed at first and then willingly walking along as something pulls at you, stringing you along. The walls are lined with both color as well as black, white, and all the shades in between. Nothing out of the ordinary...until you realize there's yet another gallery hidden in the back. Why you would have almost missed the entrance altogether if someone hadn't walked in right before you!

Stepping inside your jaw positively drops as a black and white photo with color splotches confront your eyes. Was that? No, it couldn't be...it just couldn't be! But it is. The gallery of Esoteric Myobi is more than it seems. It exhibits photographs consisting of the most modern of arts, portraying the most beautiful topics hand in hand with the most taboo of subjects. Sensuous and dark, yet thrilling all the same. Ranging from the innocent calm of romance to the paths most never dare to venture.

Huh, no wonder there was a crowd! These walls, unlike their cousins outside, are filled with differing visages of both men and women alike, some sprawled out and posing luxuriously while others are bound.

Just as you have completed your circuit of the gallery and are about to head out, a sign catches your eye:


Searching for new subjects.
Interested models, please apply at the desk.
Thank you for your patronage!

Hmm what was this? Searching for new subjects? As...a model? The thought flits through your mind as you entertain ideas of become world renowned, your visage displayed in countries you've never even been to. Not quite sure what's waiting in store for you but not wanting to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity either, you sidle over to the receptionist's desk located snugly in its own little corner of the gallery. At the moment, the desk seems vacant and you start to feel uneasy...is this the right place? A tiny bell sits on a corner of the neatly organized desk and you decide you might as well ring it and see what happens...

*     *     *     *     *

Welcome to Waxing Rhapsodic!

If that little tidbit caught your interest then this may be the game for you. A laid back game of sorts...inspired due to quite a bit of tomfoolery taking place in the SB, this is a game that revolves around art (photography specifically) and a finding of oneself.

Don't think that just because the photographer is the one taking the shots she doesn't like to be subdued and become a subject herself. ;) Players can choose whether they'd like to be a participant (volunteer of course), a part of the staff, or a buyer of the galleries' works. If there are any participants who feel that they truly fell in love with this line of work after their session, well...welcome to the staff! Though if the staff is currently full, then your character can be a fill-in (coming in once in a while when needed). Or, if a volunteer just loved being in the spotlight, come again after your session is done! If a player wants to try being a volunteer from a whole other viewpoint, well make a new character and pop back in...we don't bite...not too hard anyway...

As for buyers, well galleries don't make money just from the people who come in and browse! No! Galleries need prospective buyers who are interested enough to purchase a few works. Anyone who would like to be a buyer can choose specific photos to buy. This can mean picking out a certain pose/expression that they would like to see or even picking out a specific model that they like. Once their order has been filled, the staff will organize a photo session to carry out the order. Buyers can stay and observe the shoot, or they can just pick up the finished product later. If buyers find themselves completely immersed in the work...why who knows? Perhaps they end up becoming a subject in their own photo?

Also, this game can and may involve several players so we may have newcomers from time to time (meaning new volunteers...perhaps some staff leaving, new staff coming in, etc etc.) Since volunteers may not stay around after their session, you are free to leave or if you found this to be just too addictive, well come back again or make another character!

The game begins at the Photo Gallery and here is where all volunteers will enter and get their very first taste of Myobi's outlook of 'art'. Signing up as a subject or buyers filling out a purchase form also takes place here and after you have been all signed in then your characters can proceed to the Studio. For subjects who would rather try an outdoor session, please choose from the list of locations that we offer and inform the receptionist. Any subjects who are currently waiting their turn for their appointment, relax and live life in the city recreation thread.

*     *     *     *     *

Here is a character sheet: (All character sheets should be posted here and I will move them to the OOC Thread later on.)

This certainly gets my interest. To be an 'active' buyer or a model/participant...

Hurray~! ^^

So happy to know that this has caught someone's interest x3

Well, we haven't had any buyers as of yet, but the choice is really up to you in the end. If you'd like to look at the current players' profiles, the links are all at the bottom of the first post. =)

This sounds interesting, but I have no idea where to begin lol.  I can do whatever role you require, or at least try to anyway.  This sounds interesting though and I'd be willing to try my hand at something like this.  See ya around and I hope this gets off the ground.

Well, this is an ongoing game where new recruits are always welcome. You can choose to be either a model (volunteer), staff, or a buyer of the photography offered in the gallery. Whichever position interests you the most you're welcome to play as. Of course, some people have left and returned with a different character to play again, or some have had absences and then returned to play again.

At the moment, we only have one staff member (myself) and three models. No one has played as a buyer as of yet though I think that the buyers would have an interesting role since they are the ones financially backing up the gallery. Since no one's played as a buyer yet, details about it can always be discussed. =)

Name: Vergilis Smith
Staff/Volunteer/Buyer: Buyer
Do you expect to switch sides?: Possibly, as the need arises lol.
Description: (Ignore the name attached if you would.) 
Personality:  Passionate, kind hearted, and a bit picky about his purchases.  Only the best quality will he accept.
Other: Came into his inheritance just a year ago, that of a multimillion dollar company Vergilis runs with a very well organized mind and somewhat of an iron fist on certain things.  Corruption is not in his vocabulary, let's leave it at that.  However, he does have strange tastes from time to time, given his young age, hence why he's out here.

Hope this works for you madam Esoteric Myobi.

Glad to have you both on board. ^^

I'm not being too picky about biographies for this game since I think the entire idea is to be flexible so things are subject to change as we play. Both are fine and I will add them to the list at the top.

There are links to all game threads on the first link, and if need be, can be found via the first post of the OOC Thread as well. =)
