Mobster RP (dual modality)

Post by Starlight » Sun Sep 01, 2019 12:17 pm

Trying an experiment, thought I would toss it out for anyone else that might want to give it a go.

Long story short, my oldest kiddo got me hooked on TikTok, the latest iteration of Vine. Definitely geared towards the younger crowd but it has us older folks too.

I fell into one of the RP groups (guess it’s called cosplay now) and I’m having a blast at this new modality of telling stories by vignettes.

Anyways, now that I’m not buried under studying (graduated!) I’m going to start up a supporting story here and have highlights done via TikTok.

My user ID is JadeEyesofSmoke.

If anyone is interested in the written and/or the vid, lemme know. You can join via one or the other, more the merrier. It’s going to be super casual and slow paced.
My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder,
He carries me away from all my fears;
And when the world threatens to fall asunder,
His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

Random plot notes

Background: Born and raised in New York in the Regatto crime family. Ginny's mother was killed years ago, her father framed for her murder. She grew up under the protection of Lorenzo and Theresa. Singing talent put her on the stage at targeted times in the family clubs or casinos. In order to cement Famiglia loyalty, Lorenzo and Antonio arranged Ginny's marriage to Antonio's son, Gianni when she would turn 18. After suffering under Gianni's abusive tendencies, she ran from the family holdings with Theresa's help, making her way to Atlantic City.

She worked in random clubs along the way until she's discovered by the Regatto's again. After escaping with the help of River, Ginny stays under the Malone mob umbrella for a while. She learns how to become a femme fatale to up her chances of survival and gives in to the inevitable that she will always be in the underbelly of society via organized crime. During her time, she falls for River, who has been her unofficial protector and friend. Their antagonistic friendship, emotional walls, and pride at not making the first move makes Ginny realize she needs to leave again. She moves on to the Classic Royale is where she gets a job after beating the Boss JJ at cards.

She currently works as a singer at crimeboss JJ's casino, the Classic Royale.
