Music expresses that which cannot be put into words.- Victor Hugo


Maya stood in front of her massive closet, wondering just what to wear on her date tonight. She was the type of girl that was more comfortable in jeans and a hoodie, but her mother insisted she wear something nicer. She found a dress, tags still on, that had been tucked away in the back; a black, strappy little thing. "Well, here goes nothing," she quipped as she pulled on the backless dress. She then looked at her shoe choices and cringed, knowing her mom wouldn't approve, but there were no dress shoes to be found... She grabbed her least rattiest pair of Converses and walked out the door to meet her best friend.

When she saw him she started grinning. She grabbed his arm and started tugging him towards the dance floor. Before he could get a word in, Maya flipped her hair over her shoulder, looked him in the eyes and whispered, "Shut up and dance with me."


Task
For this month, it is up to you and your partner to write a roleplay loosely based off of one of the following songs:

A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera - Say Something
The Killers - Spaceman
The Beatles - Let it Be
Panic! At the Disco - Dancing's Not a Crime

Do not simply write out the lyrics or have your characters listening to the song, get a little deeper and find meaning within the words. What kind of emotions do the songs evoke? If this song was the theme music for your character, what would they be doing? Perhaps the song is telling the story of your character? Whatever you choose, it's up to you to show up that connection. For reference, my introduction post used the song Shut Up and Dance by Walk The Moon.


Rules
1. All HEX and RPC Rules apply.
2. Work with a partner for this task. You may not start a roleplay without first engaging a partner, as planning a roleplay should be a joint effort; however, please do not show your partner your roleplay post before posting in the RPC. However, do not show your partner your posts ahead of time, no proofreading is allowed.
3. No open RPs are allowed – all roleplays should be closed to only two participants. Furthermore, you may only participate in one thread for this RPotM.
4. Stick to the prompt: use one of the songs listed above to roleplay.
5. To be eligible for prizes and participation raffle tickets, each partner must make a minimum of three RP posts, and each of your posts must be at least 350 words in length, according to GoogleDocs. A word count at the bottom of your posts is useful, but not required.
6. Your RP thread must be created in the RPC, and you must post the link to your roleplay in this thread for your entry to count. All entries must be submitted by 11:59 PM on January 31, 2019.
7. If there are less than three roleplays that meet the requirements, each individual participant who meets the requirements will receive a consolation prize of 5,000 Galleons and a ticket for the Participation Raffle. No other prizes will be awarded.
8. Please post any questions you might have in this thread, or send an owl to Cait.

I am searching for a partner with the ambition to tackle the 'Best Character' and 'Most Meaningful Interpretation of a Song' categories; however, I am willing to negotiate.

Interested? Owl me. 😊

Thank you! I do, in fact. Would it be conceivable to discuss the roleplay via owl?
