Roles.

ALL ROLES REQUIRE WRITER TO BE 25+. MUST BE FAMILIAR WITH THE OC (AVAILABLE TO WATCH ON HULU OR HBO MAX) OR AT LEAST WILLING TO WATCH THE FIRST SEASON TO UNDERSTAND THE CHARACTER DYNAMICS HERE BETTER. WRITING DRABBLES AND EXPLORING THEMES THROUGHOUT THE STATED AGE/TIME ERAS IS HIGHLY ENCOURAGED. THANK YOU!

KIRSTEN McAVOY (ROLE UNAVAILABLE) Having just lost her mother, Kirsten is left reeling and picking up the pieces as her father pursues his business as usual and she has to look after her off the rails younger sister, Hailey. Things are not made easier when the young woman walks in on her childhood friend and recent boyfriend Jimmy, with another girl. She begins to question her upbringing as a whole and who she is, something that's only encouraged when she meets Sandy Kent, a young man unlike anyone she's ever known in Newport Beach.
Face claim(s?): Abigail Cowen. Portrayal ages: 18-25.

HAILEY McAVOY (ROLE AVAILABLE) ***MOTHER PASSED FROM SUICIDE SO PLEASE BE ADVISED OF THIS CONTENT WHEN TRYING OUT FOR THIS ROLE. When Hailey's mother passes and her father insists on behaving as if nothing has happened, the girl begins acting out. Sneaking out of the house at all hours of the night, her grades begin to tank and she's arguing with her older sister nearly every day, resentful that Kirsten seems to be trying to fill the role of both parents; Resentful that the girl even has to. Takes Team Jimmy just to spite Kirsten in the whole triangle, but also is a little annoyed at Jimmy because of her own childhood crush on him, as well as hurting her sister. 
Face claim(s?): up to writer. suggestion is a young Zoey Deutch circa Ringer. (tv show she was on) Portrayal ages: 16-23

JIMMY FOX (ROLE AVAILABLE) Jimmy is a young man with the weight of the world on his shoulders. Despite every opportunity that's come his way since high school ended, he can't seem to help but slip up. His expectations from his family are extremely high. Despite his love for the girl next door Kirsten, he gets drunk one night at an event, hooking up with a cater waitress named Julie. As someone who's been trying to find a way out of his own life, and meeting someone who's looking for a way into his, the young man may have actually met his match. Truly someone looking for someone to shake up his life much in the same way that Kirsten is. A good guy who gets himself into trouble a lot trying to do right by the people in his life. (Likely will feature a pregnancy storyline eventually.)
Face claim(s?): up to writer. suggestion is Tom Holland. Portrayal ages: 18-25.

JULIE WILLIAMSON (ROLE AVAILABLE) Julie Williamson was born and raised in Riverside, far from from the perceived glamour and glory of Newport Beach. As soon as she can, she finds her way to a scummy yet affordable motel nearby and begins working as a cater waitress at events. She's heard from other young women this can be a great way to meet men who are looking for a wife. She sees this as the only way she'll escape the background she comes from, the only way things will ever be better. At one of these events, she meets and hooks up with one Jimmy Fox, a young man she sees as having tons of potential. Best of all he's much more down to earth than she thought any of these Newpsies would be. Unfortunately for Julie, she doesn't know she's also hooked up with the pricess of Newport Beach's (Kirsten) boyfriend and made an enemy in the process. Oops! (Likely will feature a pregnancy storyline eventually.)
Face claim(s?): up to writer. suggestion is a young Emma Stone. (circa Easy A) Portrayal ages: 18-25.

SANDY KENT (ROLE AVAILABLE) Sandy is an east coaster that ends up on the west coast for college. He is nothing like Kirsten has ever known before; Passionate about the environment, passionate about caring for others. He comes from humble beginnings as Julie has, but is working hard to get his law degree so he can defend people that come from where he came from-- Instead of just taking off and leaving them all behind. Kirsten's world is completely different than his, down to estranged family members where his is extremely close knit. Their differences don't always bring them together, however, as Kirsten's father doesn't approve at all of the young man from the start. 
Face claim(s?): up to writer. suggestion is Matthew Daddario. Portrayal age: 18-25.

ANY STEALING OF THESE ROLES WILL RESULT IN BLOCKING AND A REVEAL OF WHAT HAS BEEN DONE TO THE WHOLE SITE. PLEASE JUST BE KIND AND RESPECTFUL OF OTHER PEOPLES' IDEAS. ITS NOT OKAY TO TAKE WHAT SOMEONE ELSE IS DOING AND KICK THEM OUT OF IT, THERE'S NO WAY YOU DON'T KNOW THAT.

NEWPORT LIVING RULES.

FIRST THINGS FIRST: Any individual that makes another feel uncomfortable by pushing personal boundaries or making things that should be in character about personal needs, will be removed from the group. Period. I'm tired of how normal some of you find it to mix your ooc wants with ic and then when someone is completely and utterly confused and annoyed, you people resort to gaslighting. No, and I mean NO, thank you.

Two: Seeking individuals who are either familiar with the tv show The OC or are willing to watch it (available to watch on Hulu and HBO Max). This group is original characters based on the parents backstories, because we can have the freedom to do our own thing with the backstories that I find pretty interesting if you pay attention to the show. Face claims will be up to writers, but I am happy to give suggestions. It is not mandatory that you keep the character's last name but all characters will likely keep the first names. (Unless you have a better idea.)

Three: All writers must be 25+. There are heavy themes within this show and I need people who are mature enough to explore them but also mature enough to know that mature content doesn't mean smut 24/7.

Four: Please keep the drama for the characters! There's really so much to unpack with these roles, and I really believe if we can all keep it ic we can have a great time with this.

Five: Regarding face claims, each one needs approval from the moderator. We want to make sure you have enough content as well as the face claim matches the character. Thank you!

If you have any questions, feel free to inbox us. Samples are more than welcome but long pieces are not required, though I would love to see at least a short character study piece of your view of the character.
