Heya :) [20 Oct 2011|10:46pm]

New to the community, so I thought I'd say hi :) As the name implies, I'm still Goldie1899 - the AIM name I used to roam under back in the heyday of Newsieness, from about 1997 onwards. My friends called me Goldie, and I used to run a fansite called Brooklyn and Manhattan, with a buddy of mine called Silver. Just a small-time thing, but of course, we thought we were the end all, with our dark and dangerous Newsies Soap Opera- after all, we were worldly wise at age 14. I also was part of the Newsgirls Union, if anyone still remembers that ancient dinosaur. By the end, I was just the leader at the Bistro Lucio, with Beth, who was one of the greatest writers, and greatest people I have ever known. Then I got sucked into Harry Potter, and -that- devoured my life. Thankfully, today I am a recovered Potterite, and I've returned to my original love, Newsies. I'm hoping to make some new friends, and maybe find some of the old Union gang, to quell my nostalgia. Tack an @aol.com to the end of my LJ username and drop me a line, if you'd like :D 

-Goldie (Or, you know, Maria- which is my "real" name- the name I use at my job, and stuff...)

A Newsies Community [29 Mar 2011|02:18pm]

[ mood | artistic ]

This is a Newsies Community that I have made.  It is called "Newsies: Here and Now"/

This RPG takes place in the modern days...It still takes place in New York.

     Original Characters are accepted and all Canon characters are available.

    It is a pretty self-explanatory plot...just like the movie, but in modern times.

  Just remember one thing... THE STREETS OF NEW YORK HAVE CHANGED.

The Rating of this RPG is M for Mature.

Thanks and Write back,

Newsies Forum! [03 Mar 2011|03:57pm]

Hi, all! Not sure if any of you all still check this page, but if you do, I have awesome news. My awesomely cool girlfriend, wyrd_maiden created a Newsies Forum/Fansite for all of us older Newsies fans (people in their 20's and up), who want to connect, keep up on Newsies news (the new stage-play, for example), post fic and anything else, really. Here's the link, check it out!

Newsies RPG! Just opened! [17 Mar 2009|05:35pm]

[ mood | cold ]


sometimes the living is sweet,
and sometimes there's nothing to eat,
but i always land on my feet

It's been one years since the newsies won their Newsboy Strike,
but looking around New York City one would think that little has
changed. Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst are back
to their old ways, competing with one another to find the biggest
front page story out there, even going as far as to influence the
news with money, creating stories that wouldn't otherwise exist.

The stories come from the waves of immigrants making their way
through Ellis Island, shaping the dynamics of their city. It is easy
to pick on the newcomers, blaming them for the rise in crime, the
loss of jobs to hardworking American citizens, and the shaping of
small communities separating the Old World from the New World.
It's almost too perfect. Each immigrant has a story that can be
warped into a front page sensation, creating animosity where
there might not originally have been any.

For the Newsies it is a double whammy. Depending on the news
publication they work for it is a race to sell the most papes in
order to get their payment, for if they don't sell it they can either
kiss their jobs goodbye, or lose any possible hope of getting a
raise. And at the same time they have to worry about keeping
their jobs from falling into the hands of the newcomers, the boys
of foreign lands that would work for cheap, something that only
increases the newspaper war between Pulitzer and Hearst. Where
once the various newsboy groups were friends, they find that it
is time to go their separate ways. It's every Newsie for himself,
just as it is every man, woman, and child for themselves as the
face of New York City changes, turning into a stranger of sorts.

so when there's dry times
i wait for high times and then
i put on my best, and i stick out my chest
and i'm off to the races again!

newsie_roleplay @ gj [07 May 2007|05:44pm]

In 1899, the streets of New York City echoed... yeah yeah. We know. Voices of Newsies, yada-yada. Through the years, there have been rpgs that put the Newsies in zany situations, in current-day settings and even games that swapped their genders. The fandom has cycled through all of the alternate universe twists and I'd like to think is now safely back to square one. Here you will find a basic, enjoyable RPG based on the film plot and characters in Newsies. Click 'plot' below for specifics.

Hey skirts and bummers! I'm on a RPG loosely based on Newsies and am looking for some people to play characters from my character's past. Some tough newsies from Brooklyn and a young teen girl who has been abused by her step-father most of her life. If you'd be interested in playing these characters, comment to let me know. Of course you can also make up your own character and join.

The RPG just started earlier this year and is fairly active. Entries for the RPG are written in first person in journals and third person in the community. For more information and application, check out the info at http://www.greatestjournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=unionsq1900.

Thanks - x-posted

[ Newsies RP..Sorry for X Posting ] [20 Apr 2006|04:55am]

Howdy there! I guess, I posted a bit ago about making a roleplay game for the newsies! >>! C'mon I know you want to join it! Here is a summary of the story!

Two years after the Newsies Strike, the newspaper kept the price down. But it was short lived because, little did the Newsies know that they were being conspirsized against. The New York papers started printing fake stories about the killing of Newsboys, by other newsboys to cause a rukus bewteen them. In an attempt to break them apart unknowingly, just so that they could up the price and another strike would not ensue. However, it caused more problems than they realized. The Newsboys started to gang against each other and fight each other, which made selling newspapers very..dangerous. .

I've worked really hard to make it so people will join it who roleplay GOOD ^^;;; I mean, I'm sure you guys are out there..right? Well, here is the links....I've tried on this one yahoo group, but people just don't respond. I'm sure it will be the same here, but it helps to try everywhere right? I play Racetrack there ;_;...someone join me! I also allow Original Characters, if you play one of the ones from the movies on the side! I guess here are some links.

Community on GJ

I know, it seems like alot to read but the only thing important is the application..the loopholing and the Mary-Suing. Well, -croses fingers- Here is hoping..

Howdy ^^;; [07 Apr 2006|08:11am]

My name is Nijhia and I've had my LJ for a very looong time ^^;; I've never really been into the active communities because well, I am strange and people find me quirky ^^;; I like Spot Colon becayse well..>_>; He's an ass and he gets in your face! But if possible, I'd like to inquire another thing ^^

Well, I'm thinking about starting a RPG right after the strike. Like day after It will be roleplayed through journals so...it'll be a bit more fun that normal ^^;; I've got a few years of Modding under my belt.

But before I go any farther, would people even join something like that? Or is it hot air? Of course, I'd think it'd be fantastic ^^;;;; But I won't push it! I guess I Like would people play thier own characters as well as originals? I don't know ;_;

Look everybody! Spot Conlon is Singapore!

You're Singapore!
You're small but well-built and people are a little afraid of you.  You might even walk with a cane that people find somewhat menacing, rather than seeing it as an aid to your mobility.  You like an urban lifestyle, with little time for nature or the more rural pleasures of life.  This fast-paced lifestyle suits you, and you wish everyone around you would just shape up.

(from the Blue Pyramid Country Quiz)

Is that not scarily like Brooklyn?
