I would looove to open sometime this week. I’m so happy that people are interested. ^___^ Honestly, the more that people want it to open, the sooner I’ll open it. I’ve still got a few things to write up, but those should be done in the next couple of days. :3 Keep your eyes open, and keep reassuring me you’re excited? <3
Four followers away from a peek at the application template!
Four more followers, guys, and I’ll release what the app looks like. :P I know it was originally supposed to be after 15 followers, but we got there really fast — so fast that everything happened within a couple hours of posting the ad. I feel cheated of the process of making you all wait in agony.
Tell your friends, suggest a good, real life, crime and legal-world roleplay, and I’ll reveal the next epic tidbit. ;)
That awkward, Freudian moment when you accidentally typed that a pair of lawyers were criminals.
My bad, yo. I guess it might go without saying, but Robert Kennedy and Gregory McCann are actually lawyers … from the Kennedy & McCann firm. Sorry for the fail. Even more sorry because it was William Shatner and Gary Oldman. It’s all edited, now.
I’ve gotta head out for a little bit, meaning that I’ve got a couple more canon releases queued in the meantime. If you really want to make my day, you should submit something to my ask box. :) Please? A suggestion, a comment, BEGGING FOR US TO OPEN? Don’t be shy. <3
Reputably one of the most serious legal offices in the United States and out of it, Felds, Grant & Wilcox have offices running out of major cities such as New York, Paris, London, and Hong Kong. Their reputation is one of sharpness and precision — and money. A very, very expensive firm. Some would say that the cost is worth it, while others say that their bark is far larger than their bite. The environment is messy: ugly office politics are often in play as lawyers attempt to gnaw their way up the food chain.
KENNEDY & MCCANN
Another expensive law firm, although not, perhaps, as expensive as Felds, Grant & Wilcox, the reputation of Kennedy & McCann is that they occasionally take on extremely controversial cases. Their lawyers are known to be rather eccentric, and their grasp on fair play has led to more than one “Objection!” in court. That said, they’re remarkably efficient and thought of as being quite a force to be reckoned with, as the attorneys are often less-predictable than their opposition.
DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE
Attorneys which specialize in upholding peace in the community, these are often the prosecutors of serious charges, those involved with prostitution, drugs, or death. They have the reputation for being sticklers and nuisances, naggers and good-doers. This reputation, though occasionally true, neglects to recall the number of ADAs who wish to be DA, and the fact that, to play with big firms like Felds, Grant & Wilcox and Kennedy & McCann, one might have to stop playing fair to achieve a happy ending.
Probably self-explanatory, these are the people responsible for wreaking havoc all over L.A. Some of them are thieves, others drug dealers, some gang members, some rapists, some murderers. Whatever their motive, these are the people who are causing such a stir in the city. Some of them might be wanted, others convicted — maybe, so far, they appear innocent and their crimes have no blame placed.
Are the last group, and these are people who are affected by this crime streak. Perhaps they’re millionaires or actors. This is L.A., after all. Perhaps they’re that person sitting behind the counter at Starbucks. The woman in the bank that was held up. The man who had everything stolen from him. The couple whose children were kidnapped.
I realize at this point I'm supposed to be releasing canons. I haven't even posted a plot for you guys. Oops. How awkward is that? So here's that!
Los Angeles, California, is a big city, with even bigger problems. The year is 2012, and crime rates have intensified over the last year. The depression has effected everybody, and employment is down. People do whatever it takes to provide for themselves and their families, anything it takes to survive. L.A. has become hell on earth.
The responsibility of protecting the innocent has fallen into the hands of a small few. Police are working harder than ever to keep criminals off the streets, and lawyers, the bastards, are working just as hard to put them back out. Citizens all over the city fear for their well-being in a seemingly-anarchistic world. There’s a reason that Shakespeare said, “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.”
okay, admittedly, that’s pretty much all there is to it. I’ll have membergroups in another post. :) They’re probably more helpful than this write-up.
So, here’s the big question: Is there anything that YOU’D like to see on this board? I know I haven’t given you a lot to work with. I’ve been storing characters and the plot in my head, but haven’t gotten to typing it — soon, folks, I promise. This is Los Angeles. City of angels, city of really-high crime rates, city of celebrity, and a city with a ton of serious lawyers. Really, is there anything that you’d really like to see, without knowing all that much, yet?
