Welcome to SOULMATE, we are a real-life city role play set in the fictional town of Mariet, Louisiana. Its real life with a twist, can you find your soulmate? Cupid can help you. Over 7 years and still going strong!
Mariet is far from immune to the allure of the Christmas spirit. Some feel that Christmas isnít complete without a grand live Christmas tree, and this year in Mariet people can find their fill of them. The community has organized a Celebration of Lights. A designated path through the forest is lined with personally decorated displays, with the help of cleverly hidden mobile generators. The organizers and volunteers put their heart into this display, and it is open to the public for nightly walks. Can you feel the Christmas spirit yet?
BOARD AVAILABLE UNTIL: January 8th

30 year old bisexual nondenominational minister and part time handy man.
Meet Vincent. He's an eccentric Nondenominational Minister with a hard past. He wouldn't say he is much of a care giver. In fact he's pretty bad at it. He's almost a gypsy in nature, and tends to spend only a few years in one place before wandering to the next town for more work. He cusses, smokes, and drinks. In fact on the outside he certainly doesn't look like your run-of-the-mill holy man. He had his come to jesus moment twice. He just didn't hear it right the first first time. It took a bullet to the head to get it right, and he's decided to take on the hardest cases known to god. He doesn't want the sheep. He wants the dirty ones. The stained souls. He wants to walk through the gutters and meet the drug addicts. Most importantly, he isn't even there to convert them. Religion isn't for everyone. What he's there for is giving a little guidance. Maybe instill new morals into the worst the world has to offer. It isn't easy, and he isn't always successful. That doesn't matter. What matters is that someone is reaching out for the most rejected of mankind.
Not that he won't make friends on the way. He's come to Mariet now, opened up a little store front church in Juniper, and street races on the back roads to make money for the church. He works odd jobs around town to make money for himself, and occasionally volunteers to help with charity. He's a good man under that gruff exterior. He's just not the soft and squishy type you normally think of where god is involved.
go ahead, lets hear some interesting ideas. i'm always up for threads!
Hmmm since he came to seeing god twice...Maybe him and Alek can get along by telling each other their war stories since Alek is the sheriff. Maybe a little flirting to see where it leads? Since I think Alek would find him attractive?
I can see Rue being around or even participating in the (illegal, I'm assuming) street racing that Vince is into, and spotting him at it one night, hitting on him, and being really wierded out that he is some type of man of god :P If you are up for a thread, just let me know.

Aleksander and Vince- Vince is Married to his church. He's pretty set in his ways. He has no problem with being friends with the law, in fact his best friend is a cop, he isn't likely to talk about his old scars with them. In fact he doesn't care for them to be associated with his church at all. His patrons are former drug addicts, homeless, and the abused. Things like policemen would ruin the tranquility those people find there.
That said, vince is everywhere. it wouldn't be uncommon for him to be walking through a dark ally at night. Mariet may be a small town, but it has it's issues.
I am always up for a thread.
Rue and Vince. - Vince purposefully tries to keep a low profile when he races. He gets a hair cut and even shaves. The man doesn' tlook the same at all. Now, if they met at a race then llater, that would be interesting.
Vince doesn't look the same at all, but that doesn't mean that if you don't like a face like his you won't remember it no matter how much scruff is on it and how long his hair has gotten.
Ithink these two would be quite alot of fun..
another option i'd like to throw out for Rue is Colton Thomas.
He's another character of mine. Rue was recommended to me to roleplay with him. It's up to you. Colton is a rich casino owner from brazil that people tend to call 'cowboy'. You can look him up if you want, but he's more of an experience than words on paper.

that's fine. though 'd prefer if they weren't racing eachother. Mostly because writing racing threads can be a little irritating. who wins? who loses? that kind of thing. If you set it up, i'll do the race with vincent (short and sweet) then after ward they can meet. I haven't decided if vince even wins or not XD i'll porbably toss a coin. Maybe this is the first of three races... i'll work it out. they can talk between races.
Yeah that's fine - Rue can just be there watching on that night. I'll set it up and you don't have to do some long ass post about the race, just feel free to kinda gloss over it if that is easier. Then we can have them bump into one another.
I'll send you the link when the thread is up :) Thanks!
Awesome. Jay is not religious, preferring to believe in science rather than God, thought they could find something in common in religious moral principles and the ethical codes of a doctor. Jay has been quite cynical lately and a chat on some big questions might give him change in perspective, who knows. Jay could go for a drink, or coffee. Maybe he could be convinced to volunteer to help the disadvantaged.

As amusing as it sounds, vince doesn't usually collect people into his life who aren't damaged. He wouldn't want to have a volunteer in the church at all. HE would enjoy talking about god. It might not be what Jay is expecting as far as god goes though. It'd be amusing.
How about they meet outside of the hospital. Vince is a bit of a detective (he's a former cop) and has been tracking a drug dealer who has turned into an angel of death. Amusingly it has also pulled him into other episodes of hard reality. She saved a girl from dying of a drug overdose once. They could meet while he's at the hospital. outside smoking a cigarette and staring down the parkinglot. Are you up for a thread? I'll start.
