You tap the mic in front of you, wincing as it squeals and pierces your ears. "Hi," you say to the panel of judges in front of you. "I will be performing the song 'You Will Be Found.'" The judges nod at you and stare expectantly at you. You scooch closer to the mic, bringing your guitar along with you. As you begin to sing, you close your eyes and let your heart take over. Every note flows through your body as you sing melodiously. Finally, you end your song and open your eyes. The judges give you a standing ovation and you can see tears in some of their eyes.

You walk backstage and sigh, knowing you did your best. You wait impatiently as the other performers go. Finally, all of you are called back on stage for the results. You hold in your breath as they list off the ones that will be performing in front of an audience of over 20,000 people. Just when you think all is lost, they call your name. With a whoop, you quickly strum your guitar. You have made it into the band!


TASK:
Your task is to roleplay your experience auditioning to join a band. The prompt may be interpreted how you like. You may take on the role of the judges, a perspective band member or a friend of a perspective member cheering the person on.

For the purpose of this task, you must create an Original Character to roleplay as.


RULES:
1. All HEX and RPC Teaching Center rules apply.
2. This is an open roleplay thread. You are to stay on topic and respond to one of the previous two posts before you.
3. All work must be your own. You must create an Original Character to roleplay as.
4. To qualify for a prize, you must post at least twice in this roleplay thread. Each post must be at least a minimum of five sentences (approximately one paragraph). As this is a beginner roleplay, please do not post excessively long posts (more than seven paragraphs of five sentences each). Shorter paragraphs of dialogue do not count towards the paragraph limit.
5. You must wait for someone to respond before making another post; double-posts will not count towards your two post minimum.
6. You will be given 1 ticket for prizes, so long as you post at least twice, following the rules above.
7. Winners will be randomized.
8. You have until January 31, 2019 at 11:59pm to respond to the roleplay.
9. Please owl any questions you may have to Luna.


PRIZES:
1st - 1,000 HP + Everlasting Ink
2nd - 1,000 HP
3rd - 1,000 HP
4th - 500 HP
5th - 500 HP
6th - 350 HP


NOTE: Given how rare the prize is, users will not be eligible to win the Everlasting Ink more than once in a calendar year. Should a user who has already won the Everlasting Ink be randomized for that prize, we will re-randomize all of the prize winners to ensure our results are as fair as possible.

Ariya Lin burst with a bang of doors into the empty auditorium, straight black hair bobbing behind her. Thank goodness I'm the first one here. It's a nice change from always being late. There were folding table and chairs set up in front of the stage, and a laminated paper sign was taped to the table's side, labeled "Judges". Not too shabby, considering this is a professional thing.

To be honest, it was a bit surprising to hear that the managers hosting this had asked her to be a judge. She knew some of the ins and outs of music, yes, but it was a wonder anyone considered her to be professional. The cobalt-eyed girl hung her bag on the closest seat, carefully setting her thermos of steaming oolong tea on the table. Picking up a packet of paper, she scanned through the names of all the artists auditioning. And so it begins.

Victoire brushed her silvery-blonde hair behind her ear as her dark blue eyes scanned the room. “Where are they?” she muttered to herself, a strong French accent making the words almost incomprehensible. Her friend was due to audition, but they were nowhere to be seen. The young woman placed a dainty hand over her mouth to stifle a yawn as her gaze landed on a judge. She was the only one there but at least looked professional. One could only hope her and her colleagues would be fair.

Mila skidded into the audition room at top speed, almost falling off her platform boots as she careened to a stop. "I'm here! I'm here!" she spluttered, heaving for breath. Thank the Lord I ain't singing today. She looked around, shoving handfuls of unruly brown hair behind her ears, finally lighting up with relief as she spotted Victoire. Her friend was the picture of elegance as always. She waved, still panting, and was about to take a seat beside her when she heard her name called. The witch with a clipboard looked pretty stern, and Mila realised she had probably already called at least once. She tapped the Shrinking Keyboard in her pocket nervously and mouthed 'Wish me luck!' to Vicky.

“You will be fine!” Victoire called out, her accent making her words roll into one. Everyone stared at her but, as usual, she just shrugged it off. Today wasn’t about her; it was about Mila. The two had been friends for as long as she remembered. Crossing her fingers, the half-Veela glanced at the stern host and breathed, “You’ll be fine.” She only hoped Mila wouldn't forget all that she had learned. She hoped nerves wouldn't get the better of her.

Mila smiled self-consciously as she heard Victoire's sweet voice. Her friend was always so supportive - how could she deserve someone like her? Stepping onto the makeshift stage, she rolled her shoulders. Just pretend you're playing for Victoire and it will be fine. She tapped the keyboard with her wand and it expanded instantly, black and white keys shining. With a deep breath, she sat down and stated her name clearly to the judges.

Nina approached the grand doors hesitantly, she was trembling with nerves and wasn't sure she could do this audition. She lifted a trembling hand to the door handle, and slowly turned it, silently praying it didn't make a noise. Relishing in the quiet turn, she jeaved the heavy door open slightly, and slipped inside, pulling the door closed behind her. She could hear voices in the distance, so she took the opportunity to duck behind some of the seats already set out to try and settle her nerves. Taking a deep breath she stayed hidden, and peeked out to see who had already arrived.

Ariya glanced about, slightly unsettled, as she took in the three witches who'd arrived. She nodded approvingly as she watched the keyboard that the brown-haired girl had brought expand. It's clean, that's good. Nervously fidgeting with her binder, she flipped through the pages to find the first participant and her entry.

"Yes, we may as well start now if everyone else is to be late. Hello, Mila, it's nice to meet you. What piece will you be playing today?" The black-haired girl asked, trying to keep an even voice. Oh, being a judge is harder than I thought. I never thought about social interactions.

Out of the corner of her eye, she spotted a young woman slipping in silently and moving to behind the seats. Ariya gave her a small smile, waving her over. "I'm really not sure where other participants sit, but the people not currently performing can take turns sitting up here with me at the judge's table. It's quite lonely over here." She confessed.

Piper Lynden rushed into the auditorium, blonde curls bouncing. She was clutching her flute case tightly to her chest and breathing fast.

"Am... Am I late?" she spluttered.

It didn't seem there were many people about, which surprised her. She was usually the one who burst in fifteen minutes late to an occation. But today was a very important day, and she was glad she hadn't blown it.

A blonde girl careened into the room, holding what looked like a flute case. "Am... Am I late?" The girl asked, somewhat out of breath. Ariya looked up, giving her a small smile.

"Hey there! Don't worry, you're not late until you're due to audition. I'm the only judge present right now, the name's Ariya." The black-haired girl paused for breath, sipping at her tea in a relaxed fashion. "Do come sit, those chairs are a nice front row seat. Might I ask your name?" Ariya continued, patting the seat next to her.

Piper fumbled with her case, cheeks flushed pink.

"Oh! Oh wow... Well, it's uh... Nice to meet you!"

Piper tentatively sat beside the judge, still utterly flustered.

"My name is Piper. Piper Lynden," she explained, regaining her composure somewhat.

"Pleasure to meet you! Piper Lynden, Piper Lynden. Ah, here you are." Ariya put down her pencil and flipped through the pages of her judge's binder to a page with the other girl's name on it, and various key details.

"Here you are, you're going next. Oh, I do love the flute, my friend Olivia plays it as well. In the meanwhile, feel free to just sit back and listen! Don't worry about your nerves, I definitely get how it's like." The cobalt-eyed girl said soothingly.

@Faithful-Puppy would you like to continue? ^^

Mila nodded, her mouth dry. She tried to smile at the blue-eyed girl in front of her, but just ended up grimacing weakly. Blushing furiously, she ducked her head to find her place. Finally settling the sheaf of sheet music on the rack, she splayed her long fingers and breathed out slowly. A moment's silence, and then she sank softly into the opening notes. They rippled smoothly from the keys under her fingertips, as easy and welcoming as her four poster bed.

Ariya listened quietly to the music, swaying slightly and nodding as the notes deepened and swelled and filled the room. The girl played the keyboard beautifully, probably much better than Ariya herself.

As she continued taking in the cascade of music, the black-haired girl tore herself from rapt attention. She had a job to do, and if she botched it, it wouldn't be good news. Still swaying along slightly, Ariya picked up her pencil and began to take notes.

After Mila was finished, Ariya nodded approvingly as the last echoes faded. "You did set the bar pretty high, that was a job very well done." She paused, hesitating. "Should I save feedback for later, or say it now? I don't actually know how this is supposed to run."

"How about if we give our feed-back immediately? I think that was a wonderful performance by Mila," said Simon, who had slipped in quietly as the girl with unruly, brown hair was playing. He took his place at the judges' table and was gratified that the first person auditioning was not somebody he would have trouble saying a nice word about. He had been a judge at many auditions and competitions before, and had acquired quite a reputation as being the 'nasty' one. Well, somebody has to tell the truth to all these wannabe stars, he thought before smiling and asking, "Okay, who's next?"

Anna Goodman rushed into the auditorium, smoothing her dress down and almost tripping over the gorgeous shoes she’d worn just for this occasion. “Sorry I’m so late!” She called out, winded and out of breath already as she flopped down exhaustedly into one of the front row seats. “Just-just give me a sec,” she called over to the judges table as she took a few seconds to catch her breath. “Did you start already? Am I too late?”

Quinn Coleman walked into the audition room calmly and nonchalantly, not caring that she was late. She saw a bunch of other audition candidates running ahead to make it on time. She pushed her messy black hair out of her emerald green eyes. Her bob hair do was hard getting used to. She had accidentally dyed the ends yellow with a stray spell so she had to cut her hair off.
Quinn sat down next in a seat, smoothing her hands over her black cargo pants. She rolled her eyes at the nervous girl in front. She needs music? Jeez a true musician memorizes their music Quinn thought. She played piano, guitar, violin, saxophone, and clarinet but she was auditioning today with a different instrument: her voice.

Simon turned to his fellow judge, Ariya, and asked, "Did you want to make any comments on that performance? Or shall we move along?" He looked out at the sea of hopeful and nervous faces before him and noticed one girl who was very out of breath having just rushed into the auditorium. As she did not not have an instrument in her hands, he assumed she wanted to audition as a singer - but she would definitely need at least a few minutes to catch her breath. His attention was grabbed by a striking young woman with black hair and emerald green eyes. He pointed at her, and asked, "Are you ready to audition now? I take it you want to try out as a singer? Get up, it's your turn you. Impress us with your vocal ability!"

(Is your character named Simon bc Simon Cowell was a strict judge?)
Quinn gave a small smile at the judge. “Of course I’m ready. Standing, she walked confidently to the front. Taking the microphone she spoke calmly and clearly into it.
“My name is Quinn Coleman and I am a vocalist. I’ll be performing “Back to Black” by Amy Winehouse.”
She looked around and pointed to the brunette girl who had the keyboard. “Hey do you mind if I use that keyboard?”

Emma came on the stage when her name was called . She was very nervous but still she sang very confidently . She said to the judges that "Hi! I am Emma Johnson and I am a vocalist !". " I am from a small town and came to pursue my dream of singing , so today I am going to sing Lose You To Love Me by Selena Gomez.

The judges were very impressed and all the judges said that her voice was similar to Selena Gomez.Emma was very happy by the comments from the Judges.
