"Society often forgives the criminal; it never forgives the dreamer."
"A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world."
 
- Oscar Wilde, Irish writer and poet
 
“There was no doubt about it: if you wanted to succeed you had to go away. You could do nothing in Dublin.”
- James Joyce, Dubliners

Hidden off the coast was a small island full of bungalows and bars with fairy lights strung from tree to tree. It was founded by our parents and we inherited it. Some of us were even born on the very sand. It stayed quiet during the week, and then as Friday rolled around, the island suddenly came alive: buzzing with youth, all of us ready to forget the mistakes we had made while working our 9-5 on the mainland, Dublin, Ireland.
 
New Temple was there when a group of reckless teenagers needed some place to be, a home they could trust and rely on. They were as lost as Peter Pan, refusing to grow up. They made a small civilization out of a barren, uncharted island—they made it a safe haven. But those teenagers had to grow up, so they left it to their kids, and again we partied too hard, forgetting the change we couldn't gather up to pay rent in the city.
 
The island went through bad times, when disinterest would rise, and worse, bankruptcy: a harsh reminder that even our little hippie, getaway island had bills to pay.
Almost always, we would crawl back to gather around and share a special thrill and bond they we could not find anywhere else.
 
Then on a chilly day, shortly after we returned for the funeral of Alice Wonders, it was unanimously and quietly decided that we would not return. The world of New Temple fell to pieces. Eleanor "Kat" Rigby lost hope trying to revive New Temp to its former glory when even Angelica, the mother of the island, gave up. The spirit of the island disappeared.
 
Its members packed up and departed to live normal lives, full of briefcases and suits, boring dead-end jobs, sticky, snotty children, and wi-fi.
Words were left unsaid and relationships were left unfixed as the villagers made a mutual decision to depart their beloved and barren island for good.
 

It's been 10 years. We're adults and some have moved on physically, while others find themselves lingering back to Dublin, attempting to make the best of lives they don’t want to have as they watch the world go by. They say it’s impossible to function without the island once you've experienced it: a myth many of the former villagers have found very, very true. Most did die on it, after all.
 
So what happens when everyone receives an invitation for a one-time decade reunion on the island?
 
Best be catchin' that 3 o'clock boat, yeah?

NOTE: This is a very CONNECTED group. Everyone interacts. You MUST read and comment on ALL stories as a member and attempt to collaborate with other members on story ideas to write together.
 
NOTE: Please follow real-time when writing for your character, and previous NT dates shall be considered in the past.
The island therefore closed shortly after the funeral of Alice Wonders' grandmother, one of the founders, the winter of 2005.

GSA (Gay Straight Alliance)

I am a lesbian and this group is made for freedom. Gay, straight, bisexual, lesbian, transgender. I don't care. You can be who you want to be. You can be yourself. No one may judge anyone in this group. This is the group of freedom. The one, only, original, and first GSA group.
 
Our LJ Femslash/Slash Community: http://polygsa-write.livejournal.com/
 
Rules:
1. Be kind to the other members; also meaning do not start ship wars and things of that sort.
2. Don't copy sets
3. No EXPLICIT (meaning things like sex) content, please. Lets keep to the rules of Polyvore.

Brother Group (accepts slash sets)
http://www.polyvore.com/paint_rainbow/group.show?id=77339

~~~Gothic_Pheonix's Moderator Promise to the Members of the Group~~~~~~
We, the moderators, will uphold the promise that there will be the number amount of winners (as in members), and not winning sets, per contest as stated in the contest rules per contest. Unless there are not enough members that followed the contest rules, there will be the contest amount of winner AS IN MEMBERS. We will judge the contest based on creativity, and WILL NOT allow templates unless it is a template contest.
 
But, I reserve the right to REJECT sets that are hurtful or explicit in nature. I will warn members if the wrong kind of sets are entered in contests; everyone deserves a second chance. But, if you are rude about it (meaning making hateful sets or remarks to me; such as cussing), I MAY decide to REJECT your MEMBERSHIP to the group. And it IS allowed, and I have warned you. It's never come to that every; most usually decide to leave when they finally understand what the group is about.

everyone on polyvore.

LABELS & LOVE {LL} {a collaborative group}

LABELS & LOVE {LL} {a collaborative group}

“Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with.”
― Candace Bushnell, Sex and the City
 
~
 
A Sex and The City meets Girls role-play of twenty somethings seeking their good friends, Love and Destiny, in The Big Apple...
 
People are given labels these days as if we're all just plastic dolls in tiny boxes waiting to be bought at your local toy store. Out of high school and continuing much after your higher education, the ultimate search for your "label" begins.
 
You will be defined by where you work and what you wear, but nothing matters more than whom you lie in bed with at night and whom you hold hands with in the morning. Oh, don't deny this. You will find that it eats at your brain when you are lonely. When you close your eyes, you swear a face dances on your eyelids.
 

This is how a group of young women in New York City feel about their respective lovers as they take on their search for identity. It is not pathetic. It is love in all of its labels.
 
Besides, they are never alone because they have each other.
 
~
 
L&L has very few guidelines for its members:
 
1) You will TRY to publish one story a month at the least, or at LEAST an update from you and what your character is up to.
 
2) You will read AND comment on your fellow members' stories.
 
3) Your character will have some sort of relationship with EVERY character in the group. To ensure this, your characters can always start off as friends with the others through my character, Ami.
 
Collaborations between members are a must. This is a COLLABORATIVE group.
This means you will plan an event with another member in which you each write a part to what happens and/or your character's POV of the event.
If you have questions, ask me!
 
4) Your character will have conflict in her life NOT LIMITED TO romantic relation with men/women, in order to keep the theme of love in the group.
 
<3
 
~
 
For new members of L&L, please create a set and follow these guidelines:
 
1) Your set should reflect the style and the lifestyle of your character and should include photos of your character's model.
 
2) Provide a character profile with the following criteria...
 
- Name
- Age (20-29)
- Biography (a couple of paragraphs telling a brief past history and what your character is up to now)
- Occupation
- Style
- Likes/Dislikes
- Chosen Model
 
3) Lastly, please answer the following question: Where will you find continuous inspiration for your character?
 
[Note: L&L is an invite-only group at this time]

we watch the world around us with glittering eyes.

we watch the world around us with glittering eyes.

HERE’S TO THE GIRLS.
 
the girls who love talking in british accents about nothing in particular, laughing hysterically at themselves because they CAN. the girls who will scarf down a cupcake- the whole damn thing, frosting and all, without worrying about the calories. the girls who make 11:11 wishes, again and again, praying and hoping that they might just possibly come true, that one in a million chance. the girls who don’t worry about being perfect, because they know that being perfect is so overrated and they would much rather be themselves. the girls who dare to have dreams, dreams so out of this world they can’t help but be extraordinary. and here’s to the girls who have the guts to go for what they want and make their dreams a reality, living their lives to the absolute fullest.
yes, my dears. here’s to you.

We give an 'eff about the Oxford comma.

the greatest thing in the world? writing.
here on polyvore, we have the epic "roleplaying".
ever want to write without having to create a character?
well, i'm here to solve that problem for you.
 
this is a group on polyvore where you enter your writing. this includes,
-rants
-letters
-blogs
-roleplay stories/ads
-diary entires of your life...
 
our message for you?
BE YOUR OWN CHARACTER.
 
if you've ever wanted to put
your writings/blurbs somewhere...
well, here you go.
 

THE 3 GUIDELINES TO FINE WRITING;
1) comment on the sets entered into the group! make friends with fellow writers...we don't bite. well, not most of the time. beware when we have writer's block though.
 
2) participate in contests. i'll have themed-contests for different types of writing.
it'll be fun. and a great way to get "featured" and promoted.
 
3) please, please: only join/enter sets if you are serious with your writing or simply have some sort of love for it.
 
so once again,
be your own character.
 
write.
 
and in case you were wondering?
"The 'Oxford comma' is an optional comma before the word 'and' at the end of a list:
ex., We sell books, videos, and magazines.
 
It's known as the Oxford comma because it was traditionally used by printers, readers, and editors at Oxford University Press. Not all writers and publishers use it, but it can clarify the meaning of a sentence when the items in a list are not single words:
ex., These items are available in black and white, red and yellow, and blue and green.
 
The Oxford comma is also known as the 'serial comma'."
