Welcome to Will to Live, a RP set in the fictional town of Monroeville, Maine. Orginally a small fishing village turned college town turned tourist trap, long-time locals are now outnumbered by newcomers in their ever-expanding hometown. Plots are primarily member-driven, with a wide range of interesting and diverse characters to interact with. Feel free to jump right in; fresh perspectives and ideas are always welcome.
your friendly staff

CHERRY STREET DIRECTORY
Cherry Street is home to a number of businesses, most of them run down and a little suspect. Before making up a new location, check here to see what's already been mentioned so we don't have repeats of similar businesses. If you've mentioned a place in a thread, or have something you want to add, use the form at the bottom of this post.
BARS & RESTAURANTS
Considered one of Monroeville's Best Kept Secrets. It draws a pretty good crowd of mostly young adults and hipsters. During the week it's a mellow type of atmosphere, with open mic nights and live jazz and such. On weekends, it's all techno and dancing 'til 4am.
>> Daddy Crab Legs Crab Shack
A local bar on Cherry that also has a full dinner menu. It features drinks like the Clam Bite and the Gnarly Shark.
>> Mom & Pop's Diner
Located right outside of Little Haven, this is a standard greasy spoon situated inside of a trailer. The food is greasy and cheap and plentiful.
>> Paddy's Irish Pub
Owned by Franklin O'Toole and operated by four incompetent 30-somethings, Paddy's holds the title of Worst Bar in Maine. Somehow though, the business still manages to stay afloat, its small group of patrons made up of mostly skeevy old drunks.
Formerly known as The Thirsty Pelican, this bar reopened in 2018 under new management and now services Monroeville's LGBTQ population. It's a nice, modern place, the kind of chic usually reserved for Jonesport clubs. It offers drinking and dancing and has Ladies Nights on Tuesdays and Fridays.
>> Ripley's Pool Hall
Your standard dive bar. It's popular with the more adventurous college students for being just seedy enough to seem 'authentic' instead of skeevy. It's dark and loud and a little dingy, but it has pool tables and cheap beer, and hosts local bands and open mic nights a few times a month.
>> South of the Border
A cheap restaurant that serves predominantly Mexican cuisine such as burritos, tacos, and of course nachos. People not feeling adventurous can enjoy the greasy hamburgers and fries. For those wanting to take an adventure try the Peruvian Specials.
SHOPPING & ENTERTAINMENT
>> Bodega Convenience
A small hole in the wall that sells packaged foods and liquor. Nothing fancy.
>> Brown Bag Pleasures
A sex shop, porn store, and porn viewing area on weekends. Also sells lingerie and "sexy" costumes. All of their items are packaged in inconspicuous brown bags.
>> The Cat Scratch Club
A broke down strip club that smells like sadness and advertises Girls, Girls, Girls. Located by the highway for easy access from travelers, their main clientele.
>> Coake Mechanics
On the corner of Cherry and Mulberry, a beaten up garage with a house haphazardly attached to the back. It doesn't get much of a second look, but it's cheap and the owner's actually pretty good with this stuff.
>> Doogie's Scrap
A junkyard off Route 1, one lot to the left of Little Haven. Offers towing services, scrap metal recycling and you-pull-it parts for auto repairs.
>> Kleen-Kloze Washateria
A laundromat built in the '70s. It's always muggy inside, the selection of magazines hasn't been updated since the place was built, and more than a few of the plastic chairs are cracked - but what do you expect, paradise?
>> The Meat Locker
Local butcher who hangs his wares in the windows. Will dress your meat if you ask.
>> Nice and Nautical
Monroeville's very own Burlesque club, open weeknights until 2 a.m. and weekends until 4 a.m. Nightly shows include musical numbers and some comedy, but mostly pretty girls doing choreographed nude or nearly nude dances.
A cheap-as-rocks thrift store. Dimly-lit, disorganized, and sketchy as all get out. You can find some great stuff here, though you may have to sift through a lot of junk for it. Savvy shoppers know this is where Hobo's New Clothes sources many of its 'vintage finds.'
>> Tinte & Loch
A brand new tattoo and piercing parlor owned by a German immigrant. Hosts a wide selection of some of the best artists in Maine with special events once a month highlighting artists and sales. Very clean, very professional with 5 stars on Yelp. Located next to Alibi.
If you would like to add a shop, fill out the following form. Keep in mind that Cherry Street is the rougher side of town; small cafes, souvenir shops and clothing stores are more likely to be found in the Square or the Plaza.
