Title: New Friends
Mikara Selecia Lovelace - April 21, 2011 09:01 PM (GMT)
Mikara strolled down the isles between the book shelves, a piece of paper was in her left hand scrawled on with neat elegant writing. Her I-pod blared Cascada's Perfect Day, as she walked her step had a bounce of dancing and she wiggled her hips ever so slightly. Her red hair was down and straightened with an edgy sort of look going perfectly with her off the shoulder top and her denim shorts. In her hair was little Tiara with a purple gemstone in the middle, it was the only piece that made her look at all like royalty, and today she needed it so she wouldn't be disturbed too much.
She stopped looking up at a high shelf and sighed, she sat down her messenger bag and leaned against the shelf getting as high on her tiptoes as possible. She was reaching for a book with a bright blue spine and musical notes down it, it was one she needed gravely to compare to her works. She jumped a bit and staggered back nearly falling as she looked up at the book.

Madelynn had ventured out to the public library to explore the endless isles of literature and silence. She carefully ran her finger across the spines of the books looking for any that might stand out to her. She sighed happily as she rounded the corner and saw a girl from school who looked like she was having difficulties grabbing a book from the higher shelves. Madelynn smiled as she walked towards the girl and reaching up grabbed the book the girl was looking at. "Here you go! Is this the book you were looking for?"
She asked handing the book to the girl. She smiled as she noticed the tiara the girl had placed on her head. So she is a princess as well
she thought. "Hi I'm Madelynn but please call me Maddie. I have seen you around Majestic before. I am the Princess of Spain."
She smiled adjusting the small little tiara she had placed in her hair to let people know she was royalty.HER OUTFIT!

Seeing a hand reach up and grab the book Mikara looked over to see a girl, she had on a tiara and a blue shirt. "Yeah, I've been looking for it," she said and took the book starting to page through the musical notes and various rhyme schemes. Upon the introduction she smiled a bit and touched her own forehead and sent out a motion to Maddie, "I am Mikara, but you can call me Miku, I'm the crown Princess of Norway," she extended her free hand out to Maddie slowly.
Madelynn Ariela Cassian - April 23, 2011 02:47 PM (GMT)
Madelynn smiled as she handed the book to the girl. She watched as the girl flipped through the pages of the book. Madelynn smiled as the girl introduced herself. "It is nice to meet you Miku. You can call me Maddie if you would like." She replied taking Miku's extended hand a shaking it. "Would you like to find a table or something and join me in reading or studying. She asked motioning to a nearby table as she scanned the books in front of her.
Mikara Selecia Lovelace - April 24, 2011 01:48 AM (GMT)
Miku looked up at her and nodded slowly, "Sure that sounds like a good plan, besides its gonna take me a while to check through all my notes." she said a bit proudly. Crouching down she gathered up her bag and the other three music books she had, and started looking for a free table as most of them were full. She huffed and looked around a bit more finding a table with nobody at it, she walked over ignoring the stares and set down her stuff before she went searching through her bag.
Madelynn Ariela Cassian - April 25, 2011 03:36 AM (GMT)
Maddie smiled as she followed Miku over to a table. She politely smiled at the stares the two princesses were getting. She set her bag down and walked back to the shelves grabbing a few books she wanted. She smirked as she walked back to the table and sat down. She picked up the first book and began skimming through the pages allowing them to softly flip through her fingers. She loved the feel and look of an old book. The simple old binds broken and tattered with age and the pages yellowed and frayed from many years of readings. She sighed as she opened up the first page and adjusting her small tiara she began reading.
Mikara Selecia Lovelace - April 25, 2011 11:51 AM (GMT)
Mikara started pulling out a stack of four notebooks, and opened them all to there first page. Scrawled across the pages in each one were and array of notes, bars, lyrics, vibrato patches, and headings for each one of the songs. She opened up the first music book she had gotten earlier and flipped through it finding the bar page and started going through her books correcting them slowly. All but falling oblivious to everything around her she had started humming softly tapping her foot in a slow paced rhythm.
Madelynn Ariela Cassian - April 25, 2011 11:12 PM (GMT)
Maddie smiled at Miku as sat down and began flipping through her notebooks and the books she grabbed. Maddie smirked as Miku began to tap and thrum along with the music in her head. "Do you mind if I ask what you are working on?" She asked curious to know what the younger princess was working on. She smiled as she leaned slightly on her one arm looking at the papers laid out in front of her friend.
Mikara Selecia Lovelace - April 26, 2011 12:05 PM (GMT)
Mikara stopped humming and looked up, "Just some songs I wrote, I ended up getting a few note wrong once so I like to go over it using books, it lets me make sure I've wrote them the right way," she said and flipped one of the notebooks around handing it to Maddie so she could see. "I've been working for a few years now, and so I really have some catching up to do," she waved her hand motioning at all the notebooks.
Madelynn Ariela Cassian - May 12, 2011 03:25 PM (GMT)
"That's really cool! I wish I could write music. I mean I can sing but I can't write music at all. I have tried and it ended badly just ask my twin she knows." Maddie smiled looking at Miku's works. Maddie had never been good at music writing she was more of the reading and short story writing kind of girl. She loved to sing but had never really had the courage to sing in front of people or anything. That was something she reamed of doing but she was afraid of failing and humiliating herself. She did not want to embarrass herself she was the spanish princess after all.
Mikara Selecia Lovelace - May 15, 2011 10:29 PM (GMT)
Miku laughed softly so she wouldn't disturb anybody nearby, "I could teach you if you want, though of course, you need to be able to sing in front of people," she said and made a silly face not caring what anybody thought. She loved to have fun and let her music take over, it was just natural to her, though she did have her moments of stage fright like anybody else does. "Besides, its really fun when your up on stage with friends, you'll just feel right at home somehow," she said with a grin creeping over her face. Switching to a different notebook she kept going through the notes and the Vibrato the pitches tones and everything in between, she loved it so much just hearing the sounds in her head as she went through them correcting each thing no matter how small it was.
Madelynn Ariela Cassian - May 18, 2011 02:42 AM (GMT)
Mads smiled as Miku said that she would help teach her how to write music. She laughed as the other princess said that she should be able to sing and be able to sing in front of people. Maddie sighed as she looked at the work of the other royal. She thought for a second before looking at her friend and smiling. "Well I think I can get over my fear if you can help me. I would really love it and you're right it would be really fun to try." She smiled as she thought more and more about it. She just hoped that when the time came she didn't fail and embarrass herself or anyone else.
Tomás Leon Gallato - May 18, 2011 05:23 AM (GMT)
Tomas walked into the library covered in sweat, dressed in a pair of black tabi shoes, red skinny jeans rolled up to his shins, and a white t-shirt hoodie with a black Circle-A patch on the chest exposing an intricate black rose design on his arms and legs. Picking out several books, including "The Kingdom Of God Is Within You", both volumes of "Endgame", and a few others with titles that would make the average person scratch their head in confusion, Tomas looked for an empty table. After finding none, Tomas sat against the side of a book shelf and began reading his anarchistic books.
Mikara Selecia Lovelace - May 18, 2011 12:04 PM (GMT)
Miku chuckled and played with the string of one of her leather gloves, "It doesn't matter if you screw up, just go with it," she said as if she read the other girls mind. Putting her index finger down to the notebook in the middle she traced her finger along the notes goign up and down the scale, "This one is the piece I'm proud of most, but I made this one by accident," looking up to Maddie she smiled before looking back down to the piece. Just like Clock Work was scrawled over the top of the page in bold letters, and the lyrics meshed right into the title though contradicting it at times too.
Madelynn Ariela Cassian - May 18, 2011 03:51 PM (GMT)
Maddie smiled as Miku told ehr to just roll with it if she screws up. She laughed as the young girl showed her the piece. She looked at the music and words and smiled. The lyrics on the page flowed so well together and with the music everything looked perfect and sounded good in her head as well. She looked back at Miku smiling "wow this is really good! I love the lyriccs and flowing of the music."She smiled looking around the library she saw a familiar looking boy sitting againsta bookshelf. She smiled as she looked at him "Hey would you like to come sit with us. That is if my friend doesn't mind."she asked looking at Miku then back at the boy.
Tomás Leon Gallato - May 18, 2011 11:52 PM (GMT)
Tomas read the first volume of "Endgame" by Derrick Jensen interestedly. His thoughts were interrupted by a girl asking him if he wanted to sit with her and her friend. "Uh, sure.", Tomas replied, picking up his small stack of books and walking to the girls table. "Hey. I'm Tomas Gallato." Tomas said, setting the books on the table and sitting down. Before continuing with his reading, Tomas colored in a fading portion of the black rose stem on his arm with a black sharpie produced from his red skinny jeans.
Mikara Selecia Lovelace - May 19, 2011 12:40 AM (GMT)
Miku smiled and watched as the boy walked over, upon hearing his name she tried to figure where she had heard it before but came up empty. "I'm Mikara Lovelace, but just call me Miku," she said and smiled kindly. Looking back to her notebook she got back to work flying through her corrections and closing up one of her notebooks finished with it.
Madelynn Ariela Cassian - May 19, 2011 02:06 AM (GMT)
Maddie smiled as the boy came over to the girl's table "Hi! I am Madelynn Ariella Cassian. You can call me Maddie though." She smiled at the boy. He appeared to be older than the two of the girl's. She smiled at him curiously. "So what books do you have there Tomas?" She asked looking at his small stack of books.
Tomás Leon Gallato - May 19, 2011 09:39 PM (GMT)
"Oh nothing, just a few books on anarchism, anti-capitilism, anarcho-communism, libertarianism, Leo Tolstoy, Emma Goldman, Mikhail Bakunin, and the such.", Tomas answered, looking up from his book. "Yeah I'm an anarchist. You know whats best about me being an anarchist? I'm also a prince, first in line and everything. See this?", Tomas asked, pointing at the thorny rose stem drawings all overs his arms. "It's the black rose of anarchy. Mom was so pissed when I started drawing these all over myself.", Tomas explained, continuing in his reading.
Mikara Selecia Lovelace - May 21, 2011 01:08 AM (GMT)
Mikara grinned a bit and looked over at Tomas, "Sweet, I'm fairly an anarchist too but I don't read up on it that much," she said with a small shrug. Brushing a few stray strands of hair from her face she scribbled around in her notebooks nearly finishing them all. "Well, I think I got all my corrections done," she said happily before getting shushed by the librarian. "Oopsie," she whispered and covered her mouth a faint blush rolling over her cheeks.
Madelynn Ariela Cassian - May 21, 2011 02:06 PM (GMT)
Madelynn smiled as Tomas answered her question. "Well, I am not an anarchist but it all looks very interesting. I am pretty sure my parents would kill me if I were an anarchist. Especially being a princess, they would like disown me or something." She laughed. She stifled her giggles when the librarian came over and shushed Miku. She looked at the librarian then back at her new friends. "So what country are you the prince of? I don't remember if you said. I am the Princess of Spain." She smiled.
Tomás Leon Gallato - May 21, 2011 08:14 PM (GMT)
"Brazil. And that's sad about your parents. Anarchism always gets a bad rap. Alot of people confuse anarchists with either stereotypical punk wannabes or violent riot-makers. And the people who do realize what anarchism is think that it could never work, that its implies an impossible utopia that takes place overnight.", Tomas said, smirking when the librarian shushed the rocker girl.
Mikara Selecia Lovelace - May 21, 2011 08:26 PM (GMT)
"Bleh, I know we have rules and all, but hey some should actually be fairly loosened," Mikara said with a small smile playing over her lips. Sitting back down she watched the lady walk away and suppressed the urge to shook a piece of paper at her. "Sweet, I've always wanted to see Brazil, but I've never really gotten a chance," she said turning to Tomas with a look of genuine interest on her face.
Madelynn Ariela Cassian - May 21, 2011 08:58 PM (GMT)
"Nice, I just realized this but I am pretty sure we are cousins. I am the Princess of Spain. Yeah my mom and dad aren't the most open minded people on the planet." She smiled shrugging her shoulders as she smiled at Tomas and Mikara.
Tomás Leon Gallato - May 25, 2011 02:27 AM (GMT)
"I hate people like that.", Tomas said, reading his book. "But, Brazil is pretty awsome. You ever seen a roda? It's where a group of capoeristas get in a circle and they play music, and two others do capoeira in the circle. They're really fun, you should see one.", Tomas said, explaining a roda to the two.
Mikara Selecia Lovelace - May 27, 2011 03:12 AM (GMT)
Mikara beamed at his mention to sitting in a circle and playing music, "You think it'd ever be possible to have one of those around here?" she asked suddenly really curious and a little bit excited. The thought of having a whole music circle excited her to the max.
Tomás Leon Gallato - June 2, 2011 10:17 PM (GMT)
"We could, but I think I might be the only capoerista around here. Now if this was brazil it would be different. I'm in a capoeira group there and we hold a roda every few days.", Tomas said, slightly disappointed. Tomas then raised his head with excitement. "What if I hold a Capoeira school here? Would you guys join?"
