That's so 70's [RP] - 11-13-2007, 10:53 PM
I was just going to open this on my own site, but since I'm considering deleting my forum anyway (the server of the forum had one annoying setup) I decided to post it here, providing it fills all the rules which I believe it does.
TECHNICALLY, the 70's was the "disco" era, but since most people think of the 70's as the "hippy" era (which it was early on but ended before '72), we're going with that.
It's Los Angeles U.S.A, 1971... Love and peace are in the air. You're a local protester who says, "eff education, man" and are now living out in a small park where you and all your hippy friends have set up your "pads" (which are mostly the back of Volkswagen Vans). You live among a few hippy legends, Flora McLove and Rainbow Shimmer being two of the more popular.
What are you protesting? War? Violence? Well, those, plus one more thing... Alien Invaders. It may sound stupid to the usual 21st century person, but back in the 70's, hippies were ecstatic with the thought that they could be visited by creatures from other galaxies and solar systems far off. There were a few sighting and such.
You, and the rest of the hippies, believe that the government has control of these unidentified alien things and want them to give up the "411" pronto. Do they exist? Are they harmless? Are they a threat to all humanity? Who knows? One things for sure though, everyone wants the government to "spill the beans".
This starts out in the middle of a talk by Rainbow, who has climbed up onto her van and is speaking from there with a pink microphone. It's pretty much the same old crap, "Peace! Love! Drugs!" All that normality. Some of the hippies are into the whole talk. Others... *yawn* How will you play it out? Will you be a loyal protester? Someone who's only there for the sex and drugs? Or someone who doesn't really care, but their friend went and they thought it would be cool to go their with them?

Bio/Other: Apparently her mom dropped her on her head when she was two...
"Woo! Go Rainbow! Right on! You rock, girl!" Lily could be heard screaming from the front row. Rainbow, though not a close friend of Lily's, had talked to her just a while before. Lily was a huge fan and thought Rainbow was an excellent speaker and much better then Flora; who is rumored to sleep with guys before shows to get 'pepped up'. Not that Lily cared, she wasn't in to any of the guys around her. Not yet, at least. She doubted she would ever be. She aspired to be like Rainbow - even if that meant saving herself for a while.
