(Because an old friend requested this, I'm going to do a remake of the RP.)
Warning: Mature themes are present.
The best time of the school year has finally arrived: spring break. This is the first real taste of the summer months to come and marks the end of the serious bit of the school year. From now on, it’s smooth sailing and the weekends of partying have begun to start up again as the cold, dark nights of winter have gone and the warm weather is approaching.
The students of Scott A. Knight High School have finally gotten out of school today for break and all of them are excited in one way or another. Some people are eager to finally have a break from the homework, some people are glad to be able to spend some time away from the daily social survival, some are going away to some tropical island in the Caribbean, and others still will be staying in the suburban town of Westbrook, South Carolina, partying, and doing pretty much whatever they want. The Knight students are known for being very diverse—there’s nerds, stoners, loners, Goths, average Joe’s, wannabes, you name it. But this isn’t their story. No, this is the story of the thrilling life of the stereotypical popular kid: the mix of the (sometimes) smartness of the nerd, the richness of the prep, the sportiness of the jock, and the drug-use of a stoner.
It’s Friday night, the weekend before Easter, and everyone is anxious to begin their spring break agenda. Those of us who haven’t left town have caught wind of a party at Wesley Ricci’s huge house, and everyone who’s anyone is attending, going alone or coming with friends. What delicious drama will be stirred up tonight?
- Read these rules as well as everything else here! I'm not going to make a "put this in your CS to prove you read these" thing. I'm TRUSTING you!
- Use your common sense.
- Due to the nature of this thread, there will obviously be some mature themes. There's no way I can know your age, but please don't join if you are not fond of topics regarding drugs, underage drinking, occasional violence, and sex.
- Speaking of sex, keep that to PM's if you have to.
- Respect me, respect one another, and respect each other's limits.
- Use proper grammar and spelling. I am in no way a Grammar Nazi, but try to make an effort.
- Write in the past tense using the 3rd person point-of-view.
- No one-liners. I understand that we all have our off-days, but there's always something you can add in.
- I want commitment! No posting a Character Sheet and then never even roleplaying! No disappearing without a warning!
- HAVE FUN. Failure to follow this rule will result in an immediate ban.
- But not actually though. If you want to pull out of the roleplay halfway through, for whatever reason, that's fine.
- You may make as many characters as you wish, as long as you can handle them all.
- I reserve the right to alter these rules at any time for any reason.
Scripturient will be helping me out as a co-GM since I've been pretty busy lately.
Knight High School, as mentioned in the Prologue, is a suburban public high school filled with all kinds of students. It is located in Westbrook, South Carolina, in Richland (yes, Richland) County. For the most part, all of us will live within a few miles of each other since we all attend the same public school. We all also know each other, more or less, directly or indirectly. If you want to create a relationship/past relationship worth mentioning with another player(s), you should work that out among yourselves and have both (or all) parties agree the to relationship.
I won't be playing Wesley. He's merely offering a house for us to party at. If you want to create a Character Sheet for him, be my guest, but no one has to. I'll be giving a description of his house in the intro post of the IC thread, considering we'll only be there once and it isn't worth making an entire section here about it.
If and when we make it through spring break, via actually playing through it or a timeskip, I'll add more details about Knight itself.
As for the Westbrook, it consists of mainly neighborhoods and forests and an overall quiet area (that is, from an outside perspective!). There is an area that has restaurants, stores, a movie theater, etc. If you want to drive into a more urban environment, you may go to Columbia (a real city!), but I'd prefer if you'd just stay in Westbrook.
I may add more here as the need arises.

Height: 5 feet, 6 inches.
Weight: 105 lbs.
Clothing: Alyssa will wear just about anything that looks good on her. From revealing tops and short-shorts to bundling up in a sweater too large for her with sweatpants. She takes pride in all her different outfits as well as her ability to look good in all of them. She doesn't like to wear a lot of jewelry, however, except for earrings.
Personality: Alyssa has a rather spicy personality; her temper strikes just as quickly as her tongue. She likes having fun and being the center of attention, and like getting what she wants. She's pretty clever, but doesn't like to flaunt it through her academics. If you're close with her, she will be herself around you, although it's particularly hard to get this one to open up to you. Many of her exes don't know everything about her.
Short History: Alyssa was born and grew up in a small farming town in Idaho. There, she was a pretty good kid. She made friends with the local neighbor kids and she just seemed rather normal. However, when she was thirteen and her father got a job in Columbia and they moved to South Carolina, everything for her changed. For some reason, the boys were all over her. This was something she never really experienced back home, and she liked it. The almost immediate rise to popularity corrupted her goodhearted personality a bit.
Her father got a job as an employee under the governor and her mother is a nurse at the local hospital. She does not have any siblings, and as of right now, she is single.
Likes: Music, parties, drinking, getting her way, getting into fights, being the center of attention, soccer, lacrosse.
Dislikes: Girls that are too girly (as a farmgirl, she's a bit of a tomboy), getting into trouble, being lead on, quiet people, shy people, people who spread gossip and rumors (though that's something she [I]loves/I] to do).
Hobbies: She plays soccer in the fall and girls' lacrosse in the spring. She also enjoys drawing, a secret hobby of hers that she is terrified of people finding out about. She's also open to trying out new things and hobbies.
I do, believe it or not, have a life. I am EST (GMT -5). I'm normally doing something nearly every day after school unless I can't find a ride, and I have homework. I try to get on everyday. During the weekends, I'm on and off sporadically.
I feel like I'm forgetting something. Ah well. Make your character sheets!
