sixth draft || [voice/action]

All right, if you can all listen up for a couple minutes, I've got some things you might be interested in hearing about--and I'm gonna need your input on them.

Since it sounded like people'd be interested in the possibility of having a nightclub here, we're gonna try putting something together on the second floor of Seventh Heaven. Dining, dancing, live music, the works. Opening night'll be sometime at the beginning of August, if everything goes according to plan.

What that means, though, is that we're gonna need some entertainment, and that's where you come in. If you're a musician and you've been wanting an audience, then you could have a regular gig here--any style music. I'm partial to pop, of course, but I get the feeling not everyone here likes Perry Como. Or maybe if you do standup--that could be okay, too. I don't want it turning into a whole vaudeville circuit up there, but if you're some other kind of entertainer, let me know, and we'll see if we can't fit you in somewhere.

So if you're interested, let me know here. Tell me what it you do, whether you're going to need anything there to perform, like if you play the piano, and how often we could count on you to be the evening's entertainment.

And if I haven't lost you all completely yet, if anyone's got an idea for a name for the place, I'm all ears. I name characters--turns out I'm no good at naming nightclubs.

[And with that task done, she's going to go celebrate this project getting off the ground--along with finally getting all her finished manuscripts in something approaching order that afternoon--with a trip out to Good Spirits. Can't neglect one part of Luceti's nightlife ("nightlife") for the other, after all. She'll be there for an hour or two, in a yellow cocktail dress, because it's just not fun to go out if you don't get a little dressed up.]

[ and the barmaid on duty gives that yellow dress an appraising once-over. mostly positive -- she's a fan of that neckline, after all. ]

What can I get you?

[Normally she asks for a Jack Rose and has done with it, but hell, let's live dangerously tonight.]

I dunno--what would you suggest?

The McCoy. [Grin.] He didn't mention he had his own drink. So what's in it?

...I think he might be embarrassed over it. Anyway -- it's kind of a secret confidential recipe but I can at least tell you that Southern Comfort is totally an ingredient. [ perhaps predictably. ]

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-07-17 03:38 am (UTC)(link)
[Well, Southern Comfort isn't exactly a selling point, but she's curious.] All right. A McCoy it is.

Excuse me, but my name is Ginia Solana I'd be willing to help out with entertainment. I play piano; classical, jazz and blues, and rock. I've been playing a bit at Seventh Heaven with Mr. Sanji's permission.

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-07-17 04:11 am (UTC)(link)
Kay Eaton, it's a pleasure. That'd be great, especially if you've already been playing for Sanji. We haven't figured out for sure how many nights a week the place'll be open, but I imagine that'll determine a lot of how much we need you. Do you have any preferences as far as how much you work goes?

[personal profile] shadedsunlight 2011-07-17 04:17 am (UTC)(link)
A pleasure to meet you, Ms. Eaton. No preferences at all, I'll work as much or little as you need me, I'm quite flexible with things.

And as for name ideas... well, if the restaurant below is Seventh Heaven and the nightclub is above, maybe Heaven's Sky or Heaven's Night?

[Written]

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-07-17 12:54 pm (UTC)(link)
'Ms.'?

Flexible is what I like to hear. We'll get back to you with more of a schedule when we've got a better idea of what the club's schedule is going to be overall.

I like the idea of a pun like that. We'll put them on the list, how about.

A replacement for 'Miss' or 'Mrs.' when one's marital status is unknown. I hope I didn't offend, if I did, I do apologize. What would you prefer to be called?

Of course.

Certainly. I'd love to hear what other suggestions people offer.

[Written]

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-07-17 02:01 pm (UTC)(link)
Really? Well, that's a clever idea. I mean, a really clever idea. Who thought of it? [Don't mind her, 'Ms.' will get properly popularized in about twenty years. Until then, she's fascinated, tell her all the details.]

[Perry Como? Standup? Vaudeville? You've lost him here.]

You could always...make it a play on the wings? I dunno...Flying High?

...For the name of the club, I mean.

[Oh, Hiccup, we gotta bring you over and get you to listen to some records (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pqRl2GH_uc).]

Something like that'd be good. I've never been all that good at puns, but between all of us, we'll find something. Flying High can go on the list.

You have any other good suggestions yet?

They've all been better suggestions than I've come up with so far. Nothing's sounded like the absolute perfect choice, but I think any of 'em would be fine.

Yeah. You don't want to name it something you don't love, though.

[Otherwise you end with names like "Toothless".]

...So...how have you been, lately?

voice;

[identity profile] poorneedyand.livejournal.com 2011-07-17 08:31 pm (UTC)(link)
True. We'll just have to keep looking for the perfect name.

I've been all right. Trying to decide if I've got enough stories written to justify publishing them, mostly--and accidentally walking into a gig as a nightclub manager, seems like. How've you been?

I can't say I can be of much help in the entertainment department. But if I could convince the Malnosso to bring Elvis here, I'd send him your way.

Well, I appreciate the thought, but who's Elvis?

[Voice]

[identity profile] ufo-fanboy.livejournal.com 2011-07-21 02:34 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oh, right. Timelines!]

Elvis Presley, the king of rock and roll and infamous alleged alien abductee. He was actually a while before my era too, back in the 1950s. I have an appreciation for the classics, though.

[Voice] - why didn't I see this post sooner?
