I have three submissions for the diner; please review 🙂

DATE: 03/22/11

PROPOSAL BY: Francheska Writer

GROUP NAME: Slim Goodies Diner

TYPE: Diner

SLURL: Teleport

BACKSTORY: The Slim Goodies Diner was in Hathian before Francheska even got there. Though with it's rebuild and consequent need for someone to take over and run the place she would use her recent inheritance to buy the business out. Frans a fun loving shy Christian girl who's just trying to find her place in the world and, not become poor by dwindling away her sisters money. She plans on running the business as a fun environment for beach goers to grab a bite on there way to and fro the shores. ((The inheritance isn't fabricated, I should add, I played her sister for a full year in Hathian - Agatha Udimo - very big, complicated back storey))

UNIQUE: Considering it is an existing business. I guess I'll make it better by being active, it's no secret the old diner lacked customers and I'll do my best IC and OOC to make sure it's as populated as it can be. I'm applying to be the owner of the Diner as needed and asked for on this forum post. viewtopic.php?f=11&t=4545 Crossing my fingers x

EXP:I have experience in Hathian as a role player and private business owner. I am creative, online a lot and enjoy management. I also like the idea of contributing so closely to the sim in such a heavy role play area.

IDEAS:The Diner will ICly have weekly specials. I'll take the time to collaborate with IC staff OOC to work out where they want to business to go, to organise event, whether it be someone booking out the diner for a birthday or organising a staff party.

OTHER:NOt that it's new, it's old. But I want to bring life into the old Diner. Have some fun with it and I think Effy (my character) would benefit for it as well.

PROPOSAL BY: Greenlee Morrisey

GROUP NAME: Diner

TYPE: restaurant

SLURL: Teleport

BACKSTORY: So Greenlee has been living in and around Hathian for awhile now and since getting here she has been busy with her law practice. But she is getting a bit tired of doing that full time. So on a whim she decides she wants to buy the diner. Green will still be a lawyer, but also wants to run the diner. She has experience running a business, so it's not too much of a leap for her to do this. (Kinda like that old NBC show "Ed", where the lawyer bought a bowling alley lol) The diner has been around ever since I've been here, and I'd like to be the person to run it. I'm thinking the diner should be a place for real down home cooking with an old fashioned hole in the wall atmosphere. Menu would be varied--everything from big greasy breakfasts, barbeque, grits, potatoes (all kinds), to ice cream, and pies and cake and of course all that other yummy fried diner food goodness. And some vegetarian food too, for the healthy people of Hathian. I used to make a point of RP-ing there (in Old Hathian) whenever I could, and grew fond of the place, hence one of the reasons I'd like to run it. I'd like to get some staff for the place and hopefully with people working there, whether me or someone else, more people will come to hang out and RP. I see the diner as a place for a good ole home cooked meal and would icly have the place open 7 days a week 24 a day, especially to cater to the bar crowd and hopefully the college crowd too. What better place to fill up after a night at the bars than a diner? I was also thinking a bike night, muscle car night (with the vehicles just RP-ed of course), barbeques, pie and/or hot dog eating contests. Maybe an updated version of a sock hop, honky tonk karaoke night (among other types) and anything else I can think of to redneck the place up. Being close to the water/beach is a plus too--there won't be a dress code, so barefeet and bikinis are totally allowed! I'm open to any other ideas too that the CD community has--my main goal is to just to make it a hoppin place to RP.

UNIQUE: Well, like I said above, this would be more of a place where people come for a sit down meal, or to take out lunch. More homecooking than fast food. In addition, with my ideas for karaoke nights, bike nights etc, I think this would really bring out the redneck side of Hathian. It helps that Greenlee is originally from a real redneck area in upstate New York so she has some experience with that life.

EXP:Most importantly, I'm organized, and I don't like drama, unless its icly! I've been around CD for I think a little over a year now (I can't remember exactly when I first started wandering around the Den lol)and am online on a regular basis. I've never run anything in CD before, but well, I'm throwing my hat in the ring so, there it is. I'm pretty organized in RL, where I run my own business, so I think that will help in keeping me organized and on track in this venture.

IDEAS:I want to have some events at the diner that I mentioned above, get the place more active and increase traffic there. I am always willing to help out newcomers and love to RP with both old and new characters.

OTHER:Thanks for reading this proposal. And sorry for any typos! Now I'm hungry from writing about all that food.

PROPOSAL BY: Daelia Dollinger

GROUP NAME: Slim Goodies Diner

TYPE: Diner / Food Services

SLURL: Teleport

BACKSTORY: When Daelia first came about Hathian, she met Zacchary Morane. They fell in love and it was this whole.. thing. This "thing" that spanned over years and years and there was one place that was a constant in the story of their life together. That Diner. Oh, it came and went. Zacch sold it. Daelia bought it.. and she was determined to have it be the restored somehow to reflect both of them. The grime of the city with the feminine, gentle touches of her own personality. Warm, welcoming and inviting amongst the chaos. Daelia is in her forties, one of the older characters that grew up through Hathian. Met her husband there, had her children there and was in-league to become the District Attorney if she had continued through the path. Now, she wants to take it all slow and work on her cases whilst making sure the Diner stays afloat with all the chaos going on now. A new generation needs a new place to call home.

UNIQUE: I don't want the Diner to have a "dark side". There's already so much of Hathian that exists that way and I think there needs to be a place that has the charm of being just.. home. No gangs there, no drugged up waitresses that spit in your food. Just.. humans. A place where you can come to hide, to gather up solace from the storm. That was always what it was to Daelia, her friends and her children. It should continue.

EXP:Well, I've been around for ages. Despite the drama that people try to pull me into it or even the chaos that happens through past leaders and present -- I'm just here. Hiatuses or not, I come back and welcome it all in.

IDEAS:I'm very interested and have talked at length about Hathian not just being about the gangs and violence, but about the justice system (Daelia is a lawyer) and the values found through morality. It needs to stop being a dirty word to be a "good guy". As Dae's done before with soup kitchens and food drives, press statements & trials, I'd like to have trickles of that start again and develop more group-based RP around that.

OTHER:I've run a lot of storylines in the past and have been asked to run groups and projects in other sims, such as Perdition & Ravenhurst and while they're fine for their own individual merits.. They aren't Hathian. Hathian is home. I turn them down, but I'd much rather have my Diner. <3
