I like the idea, but do we all have to be high school students?
You wake up. Something seems a little off about yourself. You don't feel sick, you feel different.
It can't be puberty. Puberty was a long time ago. You're still in school, though.
You look at your hand. Then at your body. Then at a part of it that wasn't there before.
Tails? Wings? Horns? Or perhaps your skin has suddenly changed colour. Or texture. Or perhaps something even more strange. Whatever just grew that wasn't there yesterday is fully-formed, and works perfectly. You could test it, if you weren't suddenly shocked by it.
You scream, obviously. Or usually. Someone comes in, concerned. Perhaps you try to hide the new growth. Or yourself underneath the blankets. They find you anyway, and they don't notice anything. They don't see anything out of the ordinary. Perhaps they admonish you for being so uptight about the day.
Perhaps it's a bad dream. You test it out. It feels too real. You even pinch too. This can't be fake.
You brush your teeth in the mirror. If they still exist. The mirror shows your original reflection for a bit, and then your current body. It seems to... change depending on how you want to look at it.
You take your breakfast, with your family. They don't notice anything off. You try to use one of your new growths against an object. It's there, solid, but no one notices that you've just knocked over a vase with your wings, your tail or something else? They just see a vase falling off by itself.
Creeped out, you took your belongings and went to school. If they don't notice, how long do you need to live like this? Is there anyone else like it?
You see another student to your school. They look... almost the same. They notice you too, and seem both a little surprised and relieved.
This is your life. As a monster unseen to the rest of humanity.
You take another step to school, with your new friend beside you. You theorise, argue and make small-talk.
Why is this?
It's a school mystery RP about the supernatural! Sort of. Some things will be revealed eventually, but here are some details I'll talk about right now.
1. Yes, there will be combat.
2. If there are any other students with supernatural powers, they will not be background characters.
3. Some 'ordinary' humans can see supernaturals. But they won't be background characters either. I'll be RPing the only one so far. (If you do wish to RP one, actually, we'll need to collaborate on history.)
4. Your character's real parents are supernaturals as well. They switched you with a real human child when you were born. Circumstances of the switch are not good intentions.
5. Generally, your 'true form' should look significantly inhuman enough to draw attention and are difficult to hide.
6. It's not just about a grand plot. There should be character interaction.

I'm interested, but I need to take count of the number of RPs I'm interested in before I officially say I want in, so I'll get back to you after. I don't want to overextend myself like I usually do.

Alright, I did the count. I want in... (I need to leash myself after this though and take some control over my love of RP)
i am intrigued, i have not seen something of this sort done for a while, im in.
Admit it, ever since you saw the Beholder, you wanted to fight it.
And tame it.
This seems quite interesting, count me in
I might be interested. I'll stick around, see what happens.
You want more?! I'll give you more!! ...well, okay, it's actually just me, but I'm very interested. I love the changeling idea.
