After meeting in the music shop he works in (where she was going to buy an actual physical CD. Really.), they start making music together which leads to a paid gig… that results in stress and a breakup, although they agree to hide the fact that they’re over until after they perform together.
Surprise. Not so over.
describing eye colors isn’t actually v helpful as a description??? talk about the makeup smeared on the left side, the lines under their eyes, the sloppily cut hair obscuring their eyes from view, how bloodshot or sunken they seem in the face, how wide they go at the slightest sound, how glassy and unblinking they seem, how they’re always darting away
all of that tells me a bit more about the character than whatever shade of gemstone they most resemble, seriously
Also Regency propriety in the magical world seems very funny to me for some reason. Like it would be one of those weird overlaps where muggle born students are like “girls…can…DO …things? That doesn’t sound right”
the first thing I did when I started tossing around a nineteenth century setting was research the sort of jobs magical women had and saw that women were already working as healers and Emmaleigh was so pleased. especially because in my head she’s muggle born and now she’s just ‘wait I can do something other than getting married? I mean that could be cool to, but I can actually do… something.’
I like that one pretty well as too. And the clothes are prettier than Victorian clothes (well, that one’s an opinion).

would people prefer a Founders Era RP or something more modern (perhaps Victorian or Edwardian)? The reason I’m asking is because with the Founders era being the tenth century, it may be a bit difficult to get a footing in the universe.

Thirty Days of Tropes | Day One - Coffee Shop AU
"What time are you off?"
"I have to close the store up- clean the espresso machine and everything."
"Could I stick around and help?"
"I’m not paying you out of the tip jar."
"I know- but you could pay me back by going out with me afterward."
what if I actually try to do that thirty day challenge trope thing… as a thirty day challenge and not as a list of prompts?
(I wrote this up last night on my lunch break and my phone just never sent it?) how rude.
Anyway: Bobby is the world’s worst sleeper. He considers it a full night’s sleep if he gets about four hours in. He’s really bad at falling asleep and lying awake for hours gives him too much time to think and he always (ALWAYS) ends up anxious and overthinking things. So he generally won’t lay down to go to bed until he’s absolutely about to pass out. Also not sleeping alone helps (I mean that in a potentially platonic sense, too) and if you are trying to fall asleep in the same room as him, be prepared because he’s going to babble to you until he nods off.
