{MMN} Men

"Fame can take interesting men and thrust mediocrity upon them.

FROM THE MAKERS THAT BROUGHT YOU OUR SISTER GROUP, {MMN}
http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/group.show?id=79004
COMES AN ALTERNATE GENERATION OF UPPER EAST SIDE BOYS
 
they have just begun their freshman year at Verona University (those who chose to go that is) after (some of them) graduated from Monroe Academy, a private school in Manhattan. Most of them come from old NYC money families and they are rising stars in the public eye.

Nate Carters is now...
 
Natalie “Nat” Clarke
Model: Nicola Peltz
Born and bred in the Upper East Side, Natalie is by definition a trust fund baby. Her parents instilled the notions of discipline and grace within her at a young age, and maybe that’s why she’s dating Holly Heath now. She thinks it started out like that, at least - her way to rebel, to piss off her parents - but ultimately, she really did fall for the bad boy somewhere in that mess. She doesn’t like to acknowledge his dark past (or dark present), instead ignoring the warning signs and turning a blind eye whenever she can. She is currently [studying] business...to take over daddy’s company one day, following in his footsteps with pride.
 
Relationship status: Dated Kameron DiVello all throughout high school (cheating on each other with the occasional party hookup) until their junior year, when they officially broke it off amicably because they're better friends. She is now dating Holly Heath.
(written by @neusex)

 
Robert Samuels
Model: Dave Franco
Inspired by Chuck Bass in Gossip Girl
Relationship status: Single

{MMN} Men was created thanks to @sarahstardom 's idea for an {MMN} project that we liked a little too much:
http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=212647724
 
It was proposed as a group idea by me and was officially posted as a group on December 15th, 2016.
We are currently not looking for new members but follow me if you wish to know if/when we are.

"The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about."
- Oscar Wilde
 
It's alright to ask. We know you want to know who WE are...
Oh, wait. By now, you already know, don't you?
 
We are the privileged young adults that were born and raised in New York City's Upper East Side.
 
Some of us got to attend Verona University, the newest Ivy League nestled in the forests outside of the city,
but now we are making our way past our early twenties, spreading out across the island, but always, still, the talk of the town.
 
Here on the UES we have our very own blog on Perez Hilton's site—and it's run by me.
I'm one of you, except I have all the latest tabs on your favorite NYC socialites and It Girls and their every day lives—which means their every day scandals, dramas and secrets.
Their a dirty blend of old and new money—the Waldorf-DiVellos, the Carters, the Riveras, the Samuels—even families like the Schullers tried to leave and couldn't stay away.
 
But don't worry. If you're not a part of the inner circle, you can be seen with us once and I'll never leave you alone. You just become a #tag on my blog.
 
If you live in the city, you've taken up a sickness, you and your iPhone—keeping up with us and reporting our latest whereabouts to the website (or the Insta, or the app),
discussing the latest gossip with your friends. We've gone international, too. Whether it's royalty, the world's biggest boy band, or rubbing shoulders
with big names of Hollywood and the literary world—well, we can't really blame you for your obsession.
 
And who am I? Oh, darling, you will never know. I am the eyes and ears of this place.
I'm the one telling everyone what you did last night, what you're hiding, what your worst fear is—besides Yours Truly, of course.
 
Either way you know you are just dying to know more.
Who wouldn't? Guess you'll have to stick around like the rest of us.
 
xoxo

[The 3 Golden Rules]:
 
1. Read and COMMENT on every member's story and/or group-related set whenever possible. A friendly tip: don't post a new set/story without catching up.
 
2. Write whenever you want to, whenever you are inspired. Minimum of one story OR set comment a month or you are not considered an active member. Not too difficult!
 
3. No drama, please keep it fictional ;) Don't be passive-agressive—please manage issues through PMs and privately. Don't mention someone else's character unless you are responding to their story and you have discussed a collaboration with them.
 
p.s. If you have any concerns, please PM @ahlexandra

Thank you for your interest in {MMN}!
 
We are one of the most successful private writing groups (if not the most successful... :D) here on Polyvore
as we go into our 7th year as a tight-knit group, into the third "generation" of our characters as they go into postgraduate life.
 
I am very proud to say that {MMN} started with a bored 13-year old inspired by books and I hope that it continues on for as long as it can.
 
As of right now, we are not looking for new members. Please follow me if you wish to know if/when we have open auditions.

LABELS & LOVE {LL} {a collaborative group}

LABELS & LOVE {LL} {a collaborative group}

“Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with.”
― Candace Bushnell, Sex and the City
 
~
 
A Sex and The City meets Girls role-play of twenty somethings seeking their good friends, Love and Destiny, in The Big Apple...
 
People are given labels these days as if we're all just plastic dolls in tiny boxes waiting to be bought at your local toy store. Out of high school and continuing much after your higher education, the ultimate search for your "label" begins.
 
You will be defined by where you work and what you wear, but nothing matters more than whom you lie in bed with at night and whom you hold hands with in the morning. Oh, don't deny this. You will find that it eats at your brain when you are lonely. When you close your eyes, you swear a face dances on your eyelids.
 

This is how a group of young women in New York City feel about their respective lovers as they take on their search for identity. It is not pathetic. It is love in all of its labels.
 
Besides, they are never alone because they have each other.
 
~
 
L&L has very few guidelines for its members:
 
1) You will TRY to publish one story a month at the least, or at LEAST an update from you and what your character is up to.
 
2) You will read AND comment on your fellow members' stories.
 
3) Your character will have some sort of relationship with EVERY character in the group. To ensure this, your characters can always start off as friends with the others through my character, Ami.
 
Collaborations between members are a must. This is a COLLABORATIVE group.
This means you will plan an event with another member in which you each write a part to what happens and/or your character's POV of the event.
If you have questions, ask me!
 
4) Your character will have conflict in her life NOT LIMITED TO romantic relation with men/women, in order to keep the theme of love in the group.
 
<3
 
~
 
For new members of L&L, please create a set and follow these guidelines:
 
1) Your set should reflect the style and the lifestyle of your character and should include photos of your character's model.
 
2) Provide a character profile with the following criteria...
 
- Name
- Age (20-29)
- Biography (a couple of paragraphs telling a brief past history and what your character is up to now)
- Occupation
- Style
- Likes/Dislikes
- Chosen Model
 
3) Lastly, please answer the following question: Where will you find continuous inspiration for your character?
 
[Note: L&L is an invite-only group at this time]

the [EVERLASTING] weekend club. {TWC}

the [EVERLASTING] weekend club. {TWC}

"Society often forgives the criminal; it never forgives the dreamer."
"A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world."
 
- Oscar Wilde, Irish writer and poet
 
“There was no doubt about it: if you wanted to succeed you had to go away. You could do nothing in Dublin.”
- James Joyce, Dubliners
 
/ / / /
 
Hidden off the coast was a small island full of bungalows and bars with fairy lights strung from tree to tree. It was founded by our parents and we inherited it. Some of us were even born on the very sand. It stayed quiet during the week, and then as Friday rolled around, the island suddenly came alive: buzzing with youth, all of us ready to forget the mistakes we had made while working our 9-5 on the mainland, Dublin, Ireland.
 
New Temple was there when a group of reckless teenagers needed some place to be, a home they could trust and rely on. They were as lost as Peter Pan, refusing to grow up. They made a small civilization out of a barren, uncharted island—they made it a safe haven. But those teenagers had to grow up, so they left it to their kids, and again we partied too hard, forgetting the change we couldn't gather up to pay rent in the city.
 
The island went through bad times, when disinterest would rise, and worse, bankruptcy: a harsh reminder that even our little hippie, getaway island had bills to pay.
Almost always, we would crawl back to gather around and share a special thrill and bond they we could not find anywhere else.
 
Then on a chilly day, shortly after we returned for the funeral of Alice Wonders, it was unanimously and quietly decided that we would not return. The world of New Temple fell to pieces. Eleanor "Kat" Rigby lost hope trying to revive New Temp to its former glory when even Angelica, the mother of the island, gave up. The spirit of the island disappeared.
 
Its members packed up and departed to live normal lives, full of briefcases and suits, boring dead-end jobs, sticky, snotty children, and wi-fi.
Words were left unsaid and relationships were left unfixed as the villagers made a mutual decision to depart their beloved and barren island for good.
 

It's been 10 years. We're adults and some have moved on physically, while others find themselves lingering back to Dublin, attempting to make the best of lives they don’t want to have as they watch the world go by. They say it’s impossible to function without the island once you've experienced it: a myth many of the former villagers have found very, very true. Most did die on it, after all.
 
So what happens when everyone receives an invitation for a one-time decade reunion on the island?
 
Best be catchin' that 3 o'clock boat, yeah?
 
/ / / /
 
NOTE: This is a very CONNECTED group. Everyone interacts. You MUST read and comment on ALL stories as a member and attempt to collaborate with other members on story ideas to write together.
 
NOTE: Please follow real-time when writing for your character, and previous NT dates shall be considered in the past.
The island therefore closed shortly after the funeral of Alice Wonders' grandmother, one of the founders, the winter of 2005.

and in case you were wondering?
"The 'Oxford comma' is an optional comma before the word 'and' at the end of a list:
ex., We sell books, videos, and magazines.
 
It's known as the Oxford comma because it was traditionally used by printers, readers, and editors at Oxford University Press. Not all writers and publishers use it, but it can clarify the meaning of a sentence when the items in a list are not single words:
ex., These items are available in black and white, red and yellow, and blue and green.
 
The Oxford comma is also known as the 'serial comma'."
