Laura Salmon Age: 17 Class: Junior Bio: Laura Salmon is a girl who gossips a lot, you might even think she’s the person behind the screen of the infamous gossip girl. She’s close friends with Nikki and Rain and the three are always seen spreading rumors like wildfire about anything and anyone. You can never really completely trust Laura she’ll steal your boyfriend or either start a rumor about you and your boyfriend or maybe she’ll even start a rumor about you and another girl. Rumor has it that this girl has a big thing for teachers or daddy’s colleges. Of course she’s rich but she’s not nearly as popular as the girls of the Met but she’s tried her hardest to get there, the only problem is she hasn’t learned to keep her mouth shut. Secretly she’s hoping for the chance to knock Blair Waldorf off her throne and getting a chance to reign but everyone knows she’ll be a terrible queen and a queen with just way too many secrets. She’s hypocritical and judgmental and she’ll do anything to get her way, so if you see Laura in the hallways, don’t expect a hug without a knife in your back. Model: Caroline Brasch Nielsen Taken by: Me...? :D

STORY (tell me if I need more, it's just about 450 words) I pulled my silk and cashmere sleep mask off and stretched. The sun was peeking from behind the gorgeous drapes my mother had imported from France. I immediately untangled myself from the 800 -count sheets and grabbed my Blackberry from the side table next to the bed. I checked the text messages and sure enough, the tip I sent to Gossip Girl had been posted. "N spotted kissing a certain blonde haired waif we all know too well." I had included a picture of Nate and Serena from freshman year playing in the snow. It was blurry, so the age difference wasn't noticeable. I smiled smugly. Even though the blast wouldn't make a huge impact, it was nice to know she had Blair's self confidence down by that much. I hopped out of the luxurious bed, straightened the floaty Agent Provocateur nighty I had worn the night before, and walked to the huge window overlooking 5th Ave. A biker gawked at my barely dressed form in the window and crashed into the back of someone's shiny black Mercedes. I stretched again and plopped down on the chaise located next to the window. "Mees Laura? Mees Laura?" I groaned. My maid Olga came rushing through the door of my bedroom. "Mees Laura, your father vonts you een his study. He seems very angry." The little woman looked terrified. "Tell him I'll be down in five minutes..." She scurried off. It sounded as though Mr. Jeffrey Wellsely Salmon III had his panties in a bunch. I lazily made my way to my huge closet and yanked a blouse and a pair of Rag and Bone jeans off the floor and put on a pair of pretty Lanvin flats. The intercom to my room began blaring my dad's voice. "Laura get down here right. NOW." I rolled my eyes and grabbed a vintage bag. I stuffed a few 50s, my AmEx, my phone, and a YSL lipstick in it and threw on a McQueen blazer and a Gucci scarf. I wrote on a piece of stationary "Sorry daddy, gone to Rain's be back later" and stuck it to the door of my bedroom. I snuck downstairs and slipped though the front door of my townhouse. The strange mixture of the smells car exhaust and the pretty trees lining the street hit my nose as I stepped out into the fair spring air. I hopped into my dad's towncar, which always waited for him in the morning to take him to work. He would just have to take a taxi. The driver said uncertainly "Where to Miss. Salmon?" "Bergdorf's, and then wait for me there, and then Barney's." We sped off.
I would really like to get this part because it's ALWAYS fun to play a b i t c h :) I really love the Gossip Girl books so I find it refreshing to be in a roleplay that isn't TV show oriented. I think I could play Laura well and I'll probably make about three to four sets a week. I think I could flesh out her character and maybe explore why she hates Blair and stir up some drama with the other characters. I would like to include her relationships with older men and make an Aria/Ezra type forbidden relationship with a teacher or an older man.
