It’s most likely your junior year of high school, and you’ve finally hit that notoriously significant age: 16. You’ve made it through the first two years, and have settled in to your own particular group of friends. It is from these groups of friends that cliques have spawned, forcing students to distance themselves from one another in certain cliques. Brooklake is not your average and boring high school—fights, break-ups, make-ups, outrageous field trips, and parties are always occurring, and there is never a lack of drama. But with the hostilities and alliances between cliques, many a time you will find yourself caught in the crossfire. Whether you make friends, or make enemies—you will have to find a way to survive high school, or your sweet sixteen won’t be quite so sweet after all.

This is a continuation. Part I can be found here.



+ All Forum and Roleplay rules apply.
+ Must be a teen sim (all sims are assumed to be the same age, so the classes will be mixed if they are a student. Must be an adult/elder sim if you want them to become a professor.
+ Characters may be either Male or Female.
+ You may apply for three characters maximum. Special allowance may be made in the case of teachers.
+ If you haven’t posted once in a fortnight (without providing us with a reason beforehand as to why you’ll be gone) you may be removed to make room for members more willing to participate. However, you will receive ample warning beforehand.
+ Try and keep separate posts for OOC down to a minimum.
+ Cursing is permitted, but don’t overuse it. If it gets too profane, you will be warned. Please be certain, however, to censor the use of profane words.
+ You may RP as much as you like (meaning, there is no limit on the number of posts per day) but please DON’T SPAM.
+ Be courteous to other members; even if your characters don’t get along, you still can. Remember, we’re here to have fun!!



((Just a little note before you begin; you can choose to enter as a student who has been attending the school all along, or as a transfer, if you'd like. It’s not mandatory, but if you’d like to have a better idea of how this RP has functioned in the past, I would suggest just quickly skimming over the older RP here. This is time-consuming, however, and you are not under any obligation to do so. Also, I require that students be Juniors so that they can all be in class together; if you all would rather be able to have separate grades, we'd have to deal with only having three kids able to RP in a class. Let me know what you'd prefer. If at any point you have questions, feel free to contact me!))

Cliques: (feel free to suggest a new clique!)

Jocks
Your typical athlete. Participates in a varsity sport, is well-liked and popular, and has practically everything handed to them on a silver platter. The guys are regular Casanovas, with girls tripping over themselves to get their attention. However, they have a reputation for being a bit on the duller side, and are seen as meat-heads who never use their brain.

Preps
They are the fashionistas, the most popular kids, the cheerleaders, the rich kids. Known for being very beautiful, very well dressed, but also incredibly shallow and manipulative, as well as self-centered and egotistical. Furthermore, they’re often outrageous flirts and teases, constantly playing with the emotions of others.

Trouble-makers/Badasses
These are the kids you don’t want to mess with. Tough as nails, they walk around with a huge chip on their shoulder, prepared to strike at anything that dares to cross them. They are known for being somewhat antisocial and aggressive, but they posses the smarts that the equally brawny jocks may lack. However, unlike the jocks, when they start fights—they are almost always the ones to get the blame. If you’re a Badass, chances are that you’ll be spending a lot of time in detention.

Achievers
These are the brilliant kids; the ones who will be owning the multi-million dollar corporations when they’re older. They ace all their tests, get practically all A’s, and never miss a day of school. Despite their impeccable work ethic and standards, they are often given the label of nerds, geeks, and teacher’s pets. Although they may be picked on in high school, they’ll probably be the ones having the last laugh.

Skateboarders/Surfers
These students a the most laid-back, relaxed kids in school. With their mellow and calm attitudes, they hardly let anything phase them and never go out of their way to create drama. They’re known to be the slackers, and this is often revealed through their grades. While they may not be stupid, they certainly aren’t geniuses, and they’re notorious for being extremely lazy and a bit of the class clown.

Goths
The perpetually troubled, deep, emotional kids. They don the darkest clothing they can find, wear thick, heavy, and dramatic makeup. Often, they are incredibly pale. These are some of the most artistic kids in school, however. Be it poetry, painting, or music, one thing is for sure—they’ve mastered one type or the other, as a means to express their angst and deepest emotions. Sadly, they are often given the label of freaks, because they can be misunderstood.

Normies
The average kids. They don’t really stand out in any particular thing. They’re not over-achievers, but they’re not under-achievers either. They show up to school, make their way through the day, and maintain a balance between school and their own lives. Because they are labeled as boring, they often blend into the background, not really fitting into any one clique. The normies are often the wallflowers, but when you get to know them, they often bloom before your very eyes, or shrivel up and prove they’re as boring as they seem.

The Oddballs
The exact opposite of the Normies, the Oddballs stand out like a sore thumb. People can point them out a mile away, with their eccentric clothing and their loud mouths. Lighthearted and outgoing, they talk to anyone and anything that crosses their paths, not fearing social boundaries. While their free-spirited nature and unique ways can be a good thing in its own light, they are often looked down upon by others and labeled ‘obnoxious’ or simply 'out-there'.

Name:

Natalie Cardew

Age/Class:

Sixteen/Seventeen, Junior

Clique:

Achiever (ex-prep)

After School Activity:

Editor of School Paper (also photographer and occasional writer for paper)

Brief History/Personality Description:

Natalie Cardew was absolutely perfect. She was beautiful, charming, popular and very clever. And of course, she had the perfect life, rich, doting parents, the school idol as a boyfriend, Parker, and a bright future.

Now, just as most of the people whose lives fit that description, Natalie was very shallow and self-absorbed, everything that meant anything to her was always centred on her; there was simply no room for anyone else with an ego as big as Natalie’s. And she played games, cruel, manipulative games with those less that her – of which there were plenty. She relished in her apparent superiority, she took pride in the desperate envy she incited and she knew exactly how to make it last.

Or so she thought.

With a steadfast mind like hers, there was no hope for redemption in her iniquitous ways, not without something so rarely dramatic. However, Natalie was either very lucky or very unlucky, for that very unlikely quandary played itself out to teach her a very precious lesson.

Parker was a year older than Natalie, and very talented at basketball, with an equally dazzling future ahead of him; he’d managed to snag a scholarship for Duke’s for the forthcoming year. However, it was such the case of Natalie’s mind games that they were simply inescapable, especially for those close to her. Having led him to believe that he’d simply lose her interest once the school year was over, Natalie, not realising she’d actually struck a raw nerve regarding his fear of drastic change, soon grew bored of the game while Parker had taken it to heart.

They were at a house party; some random teenager’s parents had gone away for the weekend and thus had inadvertently left the place to turn into a jungle hosting teens running amuck. Of course, Natalie was invited, practically the guest of honour and she made it a point to tease Parker by deliberately avoiding him in favour of others’ company. However, whether it was because he truly wasn’t dealing with stress in general all that well or whether Natalie had truly hurt him, he managed to delve into a drunken stupor and then stumbled upon a medicine cabinet.

He didn’t take the pills, not right then. Instead, he found Natalie, rather managed to corner her in the bathroom and decided to brandish the bottle at her in an attempt to get her to see things his way. The problem was, Natalie was too wrapped up in her own world to actually see what it was that bothered him, and in any case, given his reaction over it, she’d have probably hurt him some more over it. However, having him, drunk and aggressive, confront her alone truly wasn’t the best of ideas for both of them.

So, either out of fear or callous frustration, when Parker threatened to overdose, she simply egged him on, only to find, to her utter dismay, that he actually did go ahead with it.

She just didn’t know what to do. He was already drunk and adding Lord knows what drugs to the mix was just…. She had to do something fast and, being rather inebriated herself, she yielded to irrational reasoning.

First off, no-one could know about it, a suicide attempt, deliberate or otherwise, could cost him his scholarship, and she’d already messed him up enough. Secondly the ambulance might not actually get here fast enough and it’d be terrible for both of them if this got out. And thirdly, it was just shame, because she felt it was her fault because she played with him until he hit breaking point and then egged him on with his cry for help. She didn’t want anyone to know. The only option was to drive him to the hospital herself.

And so, she did, with Parker falling in and out of consciousness and continually requesting, begging and demanding that she pull over so that they could ‘talk about it’ while she was busy trying to save his life. In a sudden moment, he grabbed the steering wheel, wresting it from her control – Natalie’s reflexes a little dampened from her own alcohol consumption to react appropriately – sending the car hurtling into a ditch.

She was fine, a few stitches, bruises and sprains, but Parker ended up in a coma. His liver managed to give up on him and made his condition worse before he was eventually stabilised, still in a coma. His parents refused to give up on him and Natalie, facing charges of reckless endangerment, was only given a three month driving ban and group therapy over alcohol abuse, all thanks to her lawyer father passing the circumstances off as a young girl acting under duress – which, granted, wasn’t far from the truth.

It did change Natalie. She was horrified at her behaviour, disgusted by herself and her friends, at the inconsiderate manipulation running rampant in their lives. It was uncalled for and its effects were devastating. Worse was the fact that Parker’s friends and family were doing her no favours over it and thus, her parents decided to move from Illinois, uprooting Natalie right in the middle of the year to transfer to a new school.

She is almost a different person, more depth and better principles cultivated for atonement if anything. She had had every idea of what she wanted to do – to basically be famous, an actress, a fashion designer, whatever – but now, she wasn’t so sure. She liked writing, photography, acting and design, that was all she knew and well, she has a little time to figure it out.

Though no longer quite as exuberant and sparkling as she used to be, she is certainly not shy nor reserved, simply more observant, thoughtful and philosophical than most and still as appealing as ever, though now with a more enticing nature than glamorous intimidation.

However, personalities are never truly shaken off and when pushed to it, the dangerous Alpha girl makes a reappearance... so getting on her bad side - though far more difficult to accomplish these days - is an invitation to be destroyed.

Anything else you might want to add:

New transfer, loves Wasabi and has a grand fear of birds, especially pigeons, in masses, stemming from a childhood incident in Trafalgar Square. She is a very talented actress and photographer. Has a Siberian Husky dog named Cartier.

Also, as always, open to storylines and connections )))

Name:

Josh Brennan

Age/Class:

Sixteen/Seventeen, Junior

Clique:

Jocks

After School Activity:

Football – Captain/Quarterback of football team

Brief History/Personality Description:

Josh Brennan is awesome.

To say that he is the school’s idol would be an understatement indeed, for Josh fulfilled the Hollywood stereotype of high school hunk and then some. He's gorgeous, funny, charismatic and irresistible to the girls… and he takes full advantage of that, earning himself a good reputation of a Lothario with the ladies. He doesn't even pick wantonly on the other cliques, unless they get in his way, in which case, the game was on.

However, Josh’s true passion lies in football, to which he has almost completely devoted his entire life. Although he’s passionate about it now, Josh had to admit that it wasn’t really where his inclination first was. He, ever since a young age, was interested in art and design, and whenever he got time, he’d make up sketches and concepts for various things; buildings, automobiles, anything and everything.

Now, the most important driving factor in Josh’s life was his father. Daniel Brennan was a media magnate, who’d initially been sponsored by an Ivy League college for varsity sports. However, in his first year, Daniel sustained a serious knee injury that prevented him from playing again. Feeling that he’d had his opportunity stolen from him, he did everything to push Josh into living the life that Daniel had wanted.

Hero-worshipping his father from a young age, Josh had not objected and simply did what he was good at; sports, keeping his interest in art and design secondary to what he thought he wanted more; to be an athlete. And in all fairness, he was excellent at that.

While most people assume he’s a little on the dim side, Josh is a bright boy, though not the brightest of them all. He, like most people, has subjects he excels at and subjects he struggles with. He’s very polite and chivalrous to the ladies, even if he does play the field, he does not cheat with other girls if he’s in a relationship, however short. He makes everyone he’s with feel utterly special… and hey, someone girl out there’s gotta tame him sometime, right? Why does it have to be later on in life?

The truth of the matter was that Josh wasn't ever doing what he wanted to do; it was more pleasing his father than following his own dreams. Even though he appears effortlessly cool, he feels crippled in his own skin and he knows everything that he has now, popularity, adoration and fame, is a result of following his father's dream rather than his own, but if he had the courage to do it, he'd break through, he certainly wants to.

He’s the James Dean of Brooklake, the girls all want him, the boys all want to be him and still, no-one can truly know his secrets... well, not unless they try....

Anything else you might want to add:

Josh's greatest fear is disappointing his father, for so far, the paternal influence has been the most defining factor of his life.
He drives a sports car given to him as a present from his father for making it as Captain of junior football team and being already approached by leading colleges. He has a little brother called Julian, who's 10 years old and hero-worships Josh the way Josh hero-worships his father.

He knows full well of the names he gets called by the 'lesser people' - Chisel Chest, for one.

He's currently dating Marie-Elisabeth Normandy in what's really a fairytale, and to drive home the celebrity glitz of it, they're actually known collectively as 'Josabeth' - he'd like to find the person who came up with that.

Though he is dating Marie-Elisabeth Normandy, Josh is also romantically involved with Matt Sidle, a relationship which, though secret, predates his involvement with Marie-Elisabeth.

Name:

Dylan Bishop

Age/Class:

16

Clique:

Preps

After School Activity:

Cheerleading

Brief History/Personality Description:

The common take on adolescence is that it’s the period of time during which an individual gains maturity and finally becomes a capable adult. In some cases, said level of maturity is one that is already achieved during the childhood of an individual. One such individual is Dylan Bishop.

The first decade of Dylan’s life was one that could only be described as humdrum and ordinary, the adopted child of a geneticist and a hotel manager, she was raised without the knowledge that she was adopted. However, it was a balanced and happy family life, save for the fact that her parents had grown somewhat distanced from each other given their vastly differing careers.

However, when Dylan was eleven years old, her mother one day picked her up from school, as usual, only, she’d packed up most of both Dylan and her own belongings in the trunk of the SUV, telling the little girl that they were “going on a trip to make things better”.
Six months later, with Dylan herself having made contact with her family, she and her mother were found, and her mother was consequently diagnosed with stress disorder, leading to the sudden dissociation that she’d felt from everyone but Dylan. However, resisting treatment, her mother soon revealed that Dylan was adopted, leading to a rift between the eleven year old and only parent she could depend on.

A year later, with Dylan still distant from both parents – particularly her father – for their deception, the Bishop marriage met it’s long drawn out end in divorce. With the custody battle in full swing, the choice was torn between an overworked father and a previously unstable mother who could still relapse. Here, the choice wasn’t quite given to Dylan, but was allowed to be influenced by her. Taking her time with it, she maturely decided that her mother could do without the burden of raising a teenager – though, Dylan had every intention of making the best of the visitation rights – and that she needed to work on her relationship with her father. And, all resting on the realisation that they were her parents, blood related or not. She has made no attempts to contact her birthparents.

So, that was Dylan Bishop, mature, self-sufficient, responsible and balanced. She wasn’t the bitch that preps were meant to be, but she wasn’t cloyingly sweet either. She wasn’t manipulative, but she was far from naïve. She wasn’t selfish, but she wasn’t desperately altruistic. Despite being cliqued, she just acts as if there were no such invisible social walls – everyone was only judged by the things they did, not simply by who they were.
With an angelic face and the demeanour of a spirited elf gifted with clever wit, she’s approachable and very agreeable, making friends very easily – she’s popular for all the right reasons and doesn’t hesitate to give people second chances; however, she’s not forthcoming about her own problems.

Anything else you might want to add:

Is allergic to peanuts, has won awards for choreography and is very good at maths. She is the social chair and therefore organises the student body social events.
Her adopted brother is Tyler Young, the biological son of her adoptive father, Victor Bishop through his first marriage.

Name: Matthew 'Matt' Sidle

Age/Class: 16/Junior

Clique: Prep

After School Activity: Track & Field

Brief History/Personality Description:
For all of his (so far rather short) life, Matthew has belonged to the in-crowd. Born the youngest of two sons, to wealthy socialite parents, he's always had the best of the best, whether it's been lavish birthday parties and an excess of toys, or as has been the case in most recent years; expensive clothing of the latest fashion, all the newest gadgets, and even a wicked car. All that, helped along rather nicely by his charming good looks, ensured him not only a place among the most popular kids, already from day one in school, but as one of the more prominent ones of his clique as well. He's not a leader type per se, yet has been made one due to possessing all the 'right' qualities. Seen by many as the suave prince of Brooklake High, he quite thouroughly enjoys the 'adoration of the unwashed masses' as well as that of many of his prep friends, and has over the past couple of years been known to start quite a few trends, as far as school fashion goes.

Although he's known as a charismatic and fun loving young man, a regular party animal and notorious serial dater, he's also known to only rarely venture outside of his own particular clique, where making friends is concerned. He sticks to his own crowd, and like many of them, considers himself just a tad bit better than the rest of the other students, and just the world in general, really. If he does venture out of his own 'comfort zone', it's usually to mess with the head of some poor unsuspecting victim in one way or another, as just like many of his friends, he enjoys a good game of manipulation. 'Dance puppet, dance'. However, on the surface, he's usually nice to everyone, though you'll never know if there is an eyeroll to follow as soon as your back is turned, and there is the occasional exception when someone is just too darned 'annyoing' or 'pathetic' for him to even bother hiding how he truly feels about them. More often than not, the one on the recieving end is either an oddball, or a goth, for a variety of reasons.

But... As is the case with so many other things, not everything here is what it appears to be. Matthew might seem confident and self-assured, but truth be told, he's rather insecure and like anyone who puts their identity in a certain crowd of people rather than themselves, cares perhaps a little too much about what his peers think of him. He knows his status directs the eyes of others onto him at all times, as it's him and his friends that are constantly looked to for hints of what's hot and what's not, and with it comes a ton of expectations for him to be everything that is the teenage ideal; rich, popular, good looking and carefree. He's deathly afraid of not living up to these expectations, of falling from grace, being pushed from his pedestal, and will go to serious lengths to try to ensure that it doesn't happen.


Anything else you might want to add:
Usually goes by 'Matt', or even 'Sidle'. Has done a bit of modelling ever since childhood, and still does every now and then. Has dated Marie-Elisabeth Normandy, Sienna Gentry and Natalie Cardew (though the latter with ulterior motives), among many, many others. Is active in both sports and drama. He's got quite a bit of acting skill, and is one of the school's top sprinters (his main distance being 100 metres). Has one older brother by the name of Liam, who is currently in uni. His father is a television producer, and his mother a pure-bred socialite who has never worked a day in her life, and spends most of her time and effort planning, organizing and hosting charity and/or entertainment events.

Name: Leigh Grayson (nickname: Lee-Lee)

Age/Class: 16/Junior

Clique: Troublemaker

After School Activity: Drama club

Brief History/Personality Description:
Leigh is really quite an intelligent girl, but still does poorly in school. Having moved here with her family at the age of thirteen, she quickly fell in with the wrong crowd (J.D. and Esteban, among others), and things have gone down hill ever since.
Her younger brother Lucas is physically disabled since birth, and that has left Leigh feeling that her parents pay more attention to him than they do her. The only thing that gives her attention, is when she's doing something bad. It might not be the kind of attention she'd prefer, but at least it's attention. And so she's become quite good at being bad, although she may not realize her own reasons for doing what she's doing.
She's made a habit of skipping classes, and can be gone from school for days. She has a huge problem with authority, and any attempt to discipline her will be destined to fail.

Leigh has also earned a reputation for being a bit on the loose side, which is really the result of seeking the love and affection she feels she doesn't get from her parents, and like alot of teenage girls, she mistakes sex for love. There have even been rumours that she's even been with one of the male teachers (though she hasn't). A while back, after she had gotten more than a little tipsy at a party, one of the football players at Brooklake took advantage of the situation and ended up in bed with her (not against her will exactly, but, as she was drunk, rather against her principle's and her better judgement), after which he boasted and shared details about it with pretty much the whole team, thus fuelling her already damaged reputation.
Needless to say, these days, jocks make her see red.

Still, despite that whole experience, she's no stranger to partying and partying hard, and never has been, since moving to Brooklake. Consequently, she's had to be brought to the hospital to be stomach pumped twice. Once for alcohol poisoning, and once, almost a year ago, for taking pills in what is commonly believed to have been an attempted suicide. This too is well known, as it too happened during a party.

To the other students she's a hellcat, and has gotten into her fair share of fist fights, as well as a legion of less than friendly verbal exchanges. She will not hesitate to punch someone if provoked. However, if you don't get on her bad side, she'll most likely leave you alone, or she might even turn out to be quite approachable.

Anything else you might want to add: Plays guitar and does back-up vocals/harmonies in a local rock band. Has dated both Esteban and J.D., altough they still hang out with the same crowd, and are still fairly close.

Last semester, she also hooked up with yet another boy in the troublemaker gang, Derek, with whom she had her first actual relationship in quite a while. However, having serious commitment and trust issues, and having been told by Derek that he'd give her all the freedom she wanted, Leigh ended up being with someone else, mostly as a result of being drunk and having a minor anxiety attack, overcome by fear that for some reason, Derek might suddenly dump her, and thus seeking temporary comfort from the imaginary problem, in the arms of another boy. And although Derek had said he'd give her as much freedom as she wanted, he had also asked to never be made aware of it, and so when he heard the most recent rumour about her, he hadn't been able to suppress the jealousy and the hurt he felt. Consequently, the two of them got into a fight, resulting in a break-up, and eventually Derek being sent off to a correctional school, for getting out of control.

During the holiday break, Leigh and her family moved to a closeby neighbouring town, Lonsdale, due to Leigh's father having gotten a new job, and even though Leigh protested in pretty much every way she could, she ultimately had no choice but to go with them, and start over in a new school.
However, being a resourceful young lady with a tendency to get what she wanted, Leigh decided that one way or another, she would be allowed to returned to Brooklake. A mission she accomplished after only one day in her new school; having caused enough trouble to have her parents dragged to school for an emergency meeting about the young lady's future, during which it was decided that it really would be in everyone's best interest, Leigh's included, if she did return, she is now back in Brooklake High.

(((ooc: Since she's an old character of mine, I had to mess with the fate of Derek, another character from the old SS rp, as well as the character of a now inactive player. Sorry about that, and if Iris ever does return, I'll be more than happy to edit the part about Derek and Leigh, but right now, I had to get him out of the picture somehow. :/ )))

(((ooc: Due to the last couple of months giving me quite a headache regarding J.D. and his storyline - he's simply too anti-social and aggressive to be easily RPed with other characters outside of his own clique - I will not be re-submitting his application, but rather begin to phase him out of this RP, and replace him with another character. (See app below)
Do note, however, that this is not a fickle decision, nor one easily made. I've spent quite some time contemplating this, as both Alissa and trampledsneakers can testify if needed, but while I do mourn J.D. as a character, I also do believe this will be for the better.)))




Name: Tyler Young (nickname; Ty)

Age/Class: 18/Junior (held back a year due to excessive absence from school)

Clique: Troublemaker

After School Activity: Music club

Brief History/Personality Description:
Unlike many of his peers, Tyler, though labelled a troublemaker, is quite the easygoing and carefree young man. So carefree, in fact, that he's been held back a year due to excessive absence from school, and had to repeat his sophomore year. Which actually bothers him none. He's simply going on his merry way, in no particular hurry to graduate, figuring he's already got a job and a place of his own (explanation to follow), so what's the hurry? Nor is he much bothered by the boundaries between the various cliques, and doesn't dislike people for being rich, odd, "dark", or intimidatingly intelligent. As long as they don't get on his case, or simply just stay out of his way altogether, he usually gets along with everyone just fine. Whenever he throws a party, everyone is welcome, and because he's got his own, 24/7 parent-free place, those parties tend to be widely popular. And should you ever find yourself in need of a place to crash, he's got two somewhat worn but very comfortable couches, as well as a large double bed to offer, and isn't opposed to the idea of letting people use them.

But, Tyler Young is bad news. Most everyone knows it, and even the jocks tend to make an effort to stay on his good side. Not because he's a tough fighter - which, admittedly, he is, though that's rarely been known to make jocks back off - but because he's... shall we say, connected.
Since the tender age of thirteen, he's been working for the shadier people in town, starting out as an errand boy simply because he happened to be in the right place at the right time, and then for the past couple of years have been advancing gradually in rank and duties. These days, he's known in Brooklake High as well as in his own neighbourhood, as the one to go to, if one is on a mission to score some lighter drugs or hard liquor, or if one is in need of some quick cash, or even credit for something bought from him. The pockets of his employers are deep, and loans a frequent occurance, even for people Tyler's age, with the neverending race among the young for the latest fashion and gadgets that their parents might be either refusing them, or too poor to get for them. Thus, there are a few students at Brooklake currently in debt to Tyler and his employers. And when comes time to collect that debt, Tyler is often the one to do that as well, and in true arm-twister manner will use force if "necessary". Though he takes no pleasure in it, and those unfortunate enough to have experienced it all first hand, have found him effective, but strangely congenial.

As for his family situation; it could probably be described as shaky, at best. His parents divorced shortly after he was born, and his father, Victor, went on to soon form a new family with another woman. Due to joint custody, Tyler ended up spending weekends, parts of school breaks and some holidays with his father, the new wife and the couple's adopted daughter, who was around the same age as him, and with whom he got along rather well. Until a few years ago, when it was time for Victor's second divorce, which eventually resulted in single custody of his daughter. Shortly thereafter, Tyler's mother was found to be an unfit one, spending most of her time working and leaving Tyler home alone, thus resulting in the young man acting out more and more in and out of school, in his increasingly desperate attempts for some attention. Eventually, he too was handed over to his father, who at that point was already struggling as a single parent.
Consequently, Tyler ended up feeling much like a burden, resenting his sister for having gotten first "dibs" on their father, and sought refuge in his own independence. Now, since the age of fifteen, he has his own place, an apartment legally leased by his employer, but (mostly) paid for by Tyler himself.


Anything else you might want to add:
His sister is Dylan Bishop. He plays both drums and guitar, has a tattoo of a wolf paw print all in black on his left shoulder, a silver stud in his right eyebrow and a scar above his left one, along with one on the left side of his chin. He has due to his reputation been approached by two bullied achievers willing to pay him for protection against their jock tormentors. They are now bullied no more.
Drives a motorcycle, and has a pet ball python named Monty (the Python).
Also has a eighteen month old daughter, Tara, with a young woman (Bianca) one year his senior. This, however, is not common knowledge, and even his father and adoptive half-sister don't know about it.

Name: Katie Byrd
Age: 16, Junior
Clique:Achiever
After School Activity: Cheerleading
Personality/Bio Katie grew up with one expectation: she would go to Princeton and be a millionaire before age 25. Her parents had no further demands on her, and didn't pay any attention to her other than to occasionally say, "When you are 25 you will be a millionaire, and have graduated from Princeton."

For most people, being ignored like that would make them despise thier parents, or rebel against a system that didn't seem to care. Katie is not most people however. Ever since she was four she wanted, longed desperately for her parents love, and figured the only way to accomplish that was to be a genius. She had read Euclid by the time she was 6, gotten a paper on ornithology published under a pseudonym when she was 10, completed an internet BS in physics and special relativity when she was 12, and published her first novel when she was 15. Still her parents didn't give her any acknowledgment, saying only, "Good job, why aren't you at Princeton yet?"

After her paper was published, and became the preeminent work on the subject with no parental acknowledgment, Katie became desperate for some human contact and praise and made her first friend, Natasha Raines, in junior high. Since then she has blossomed a bit, still being extremely clingy, and very easy to manipulate, but now she will talk to people about things other than birds and physics. She is still an insufferable know-it-all, but once one gets past that she is extremely kind and mind numbingly loyal. She is extremely rigid in her morals, or at least she thinks so, though when push comes to shove she'll often do what her friends want her to do.

At the end of middle school purely on a whim she went out for cheerleading, and much to her surprise made the cut. She had hoped not to be teased mercilessly or some such, but once she realized that wasn't going to happen, she got used to the constant social torture, and focused on how much she loves dancing. She is a mind bogglingly good dancer and she figures the joy that that brings her cancels out the hell the other cheerleaders put her through.

Anything Else?: She has been in the Brooklake school system her whole life. She is referenced in the school's biology textbooks, though she keeps that quiet. She is a mind-bogglingly talented dancer. Less well known is that she is a good programmer and graphic designer.

-Her parents are Dr. Alison Anderson-Byrd, M.D., and Dr. Thomas Byrd (Dr of chemistry). Both went to state schools and they both make huge amounts of money, which goes towards making their house look like a palace, and to Katie's college fund. Her mother is very loud and uninhibited, though she cares deeply about her work and how the family is perceived in the scientific community. Her father is rather distant, and he tends to get lost in his own little world of chemistry and physics on a regular basis. Her mother shares this tendency, though she is much more able to snap out of it.

Thank you very much to robokitty for making this sim, and to gears7667 for taking the picture

I'm open to storylines/backstory with anyone.
Also, I know that this seems a bit overmuch for a high schooler, but at the magnate school I know people who have credentials like this by senior year. They are scary, but they exist.

The humor of a story on the internet is in direct inverse proportion to how accurate the reporting is.

Name: Loren Dasen
Age: 16, Junior
Clique: Oddball
Extracurricular: Drama
Personality/Bio: Loren is quite accurately described as loud and obnoxious. He will fearlessly speak to anyone about anything with no fear of offense, even though he is often rebuffed as a freak. This does not concern him at all, he generally sees people that call him "freak" as ones that just can't express their affectionate amusement at him. For the record, he is very very wrong.

Underneath the fearlessly oblivious exterior lies a pretty fearless pretty oblivious interior, Loren is not the sort to ever play games pretend to be something he's not. His ambitions change with the weather, at the moment his ambition is to be a museum curator, last week it was to be a street musician. Whenever people ask him what he wants to do after graduation he just tells them he wants to have a huge party.

It has always surprised Loren that not very many people like him beyond the of course affectionate "Freak" connotation, because he is extremely active in drama club and has been the lead in more than a dozen plays, most recently playing Fred Graham in Kiss Me, Kate where the lead actress insisted the director rewrite the scenes where they kiss and dance. Loren assumed it was because she was rather feminist and Lilli Vanessi's character was rather insipid and weak in those scenes. In actuality it was because said preppy actress didn't want to get within four feet of him.

Though Loren sometimes suspects that he's wrong about people liking him, he consciously decides not to act on that, and goes about in a cheerful and annoying way.

He sometimes thinks that he is actually popular, and will tone down his antics a bit to reflect that every once in a while. He cares very much about people, and will generally try and keep everyone happy and amused. He thinks that the sort of things that he likes are what everyone else likes though, so he can be even more annoying without even realizing it.

Anything else?: Loren is working on his own screenplay, which is a jealous secret, and has been in Brooklake since grade school. The day after winter break he got shoved into a locker, and as a result his arm is extremely tender and mangled.

Pic:I don't have my game at the moment, and I'm starting to hate the pic that was up, so I provide for your reference a
Description: Loren is rather skinny, and shorter than most guys, taller than most girls, somewhere in the region of 5'8 to 5'10. He has blonde hair, typically messy, though rarely longer than ear length. His eyes are green, and during the week immediately before a show opens or the two days after a show ends he seems to have massive raccoon eyes due to his stage makeup. He has a somewhat upturned, and very narrow nose, and small feminine lips.
Loren is also open to any story lines

Name:

Nadia Dering

Age/Class:


16/Junior

Clique:

Oddball

After School Activity:

Drama Club

Brief History/Personality Description:

Nadia was born on New Years day at precisely 12:05 am, to Leonard and Angelica Dering. Both were rather older for parents, Angelica being 42 and Leonard being 5 years older. They had been trying to have children for years, and considered this pregnancy a miracle.

Nadia was the first baby born at the hospital that year. However, her twin brother Aidan was born 15 minutes earlier at 11:50pm, the last baby of the previous year. This made him technically a year older than she was which always put them a year apart in school. This wasn’t fun for Nadia, because she and her brother were extremely close. It was hard for 3 year old Nadia to see him go off to school and be told she didn’t get to go till next year. Despite that, the two siblings were as close as peas in a pod, and spent all their time together.

Her house was a bit of a mixed bag growing up. Her mother was (and is) a University professor specializing in Ancient Mythology and history. Her father is a classically trained Shakespearian actor, and a native of the infamous city of Stratford, England. She and her brother developed a love of the theatre at a very early age, with their mother happy to supply help making their costumes look just right.

Both Nadia and her brother could quote whole soliloquies by the time they were 7, and loved to wander around the schoolyard singing songs from various musical theatre productions. Their parents never discouraged any of their creative endeavors, and they still have their shared bedroom walls covered in chalkboard paint if the mood ever strikes them to write something down or do some doodling.

With such a loving atmosphere, Nadia grew up to have a generally pleasant and easygoing demeanor. She takes most things in life in stride, and in often found reading one of her mother’s many history books. She’s a “what you see is what you get” kind of girl, and if you don’t like it she’ll tell you where you can go. And loudly too, as she’s never been afraid of speaking her mind. She doesn’t judge anyone before meeting them, she believes everyone should be given a fair chance.

She’s been in so many plays she’s lost count, but her favourite role so far were Cleopatra in Caesar and Cleopatra, and Johanna in Sweeny Todd. She and Aidan are always in the school play, although he’s not as fond of musicals as she is.

Quite a few pieces of her theatrical costumes have found their way into her current wardrobe, and it isn’t unusual to see her in a renaissance feathered hat or a long dangly gypsy’s skirt. She hasn’t had a serious haircut in years, and she’s very proud of her long locks.

Anything else you might want to add:


Owns several dozen pairs of multicoloured socks, but is next to never seen wearing a pair that matches. She also has a replica of Anne Boleyn’s B necklace that she likes to wear.

Due to her mother’s naming choices, her name is Nadia Artemis, and her brother’s is Aidan Apollo. She speaks 3 languages, English, French, and German.

Is also owed a ruler by Preston, who she thinks makes really neat art projects.

Open to storyliney type stuff. And can her brother Aidan get added to the NPC list pretty please?

Age/Class: 16/Junior
Clique: Oddball
After School Activity: Newspaper Club
Brief History/Personality Description:
Lea's parents died in a car crash, and ever since she's been moved from place to place. She makes friends easily, she's learnt that when you move around a lot, you need that skill. She doesn't really bother with her work, she figures everyone dies sooner or later, so why not have fun while you can? So yeah, she's an Oddball with Badass tendencies. She gets into fights easily, because of her willingness to talk, and because of this, she does Karate.
She's a talented writer, but won't admit it for the world. She's only at newspaper club because her current foster carer requires she goes to at least one after school club.
As a kid, before her parents died, she was bullied horribly. After her parents died she transfered, changing her image and everything. For a while, she was a prep, but she got into a fight with a teacher and got kicked out of that school, and she decided being popular wasn't for her.
She's not afraid to stand up for what she believes in, either. But she doesn't believe in an awful lot. She's been through a ton of struggles, and she made it out okay, she thinks, so why should she help people out of situations she conquered?
If you get to know her, really get to know her, you'll learn that all she really wants to do is make her parents proud. She doesn't know how long it'll take, or what she'll have to do, but she reckons when they're proud of her, she'll feel peaceful.
Anything else you might want to add: She's a transfer student, and she's terrified of being alone.

Name: Melissa Carson
Age: 16
Clique: Normies
After School Activity: Cheerleading
Brief History/Personality Description: Melissa was born in New York and lived there for 5 years before her dad was transferred to London, England. He is a successful businessman and her mother, a world-renowned ballet dancer. Growing up she always admired the way her mom danced and begged for ballet lessons. Soon after, she signed up for gymnastics, hip-hop and jazz. She was extremely passionate about her hobbies- she started entering competition after competition and winning medals and trophies, it was obvious she had inherited her mother’s talent.
You would think her great talent combined with her family’s wealth and power, she would be snobby but in fact she is quite the opposite. Melissa is quiet, not shy, quiet. And people who are quiet, find themselves to be observant which is true with Melissa who notices everything around her. She is silly and nice (except to her younger brother) and has generally optimistic outlook on life. But can be stubborn.

Anything else you might want to add: Her dad is now transferred to Brooklake. She is a bit nervous to start school but excited to try cheerleading. Before she was on gymnastics team but since that’s not offered here, it seemed like the closest thing. Also she likes to give people the benefit of the doubt but sometimes it seems like she is naïve.

((Open to storylines, and I'm so sorry for calling her Molly, I don't even know where that came from :headdesk: Her name is defiantly Melissa))

Name Mitchell Gaithers
Age: 16
Clique: Jock
After-School Activity: Football
Bio: Mitchell was born to the height of middle class suburbia, and he and his six years younger sister Joanna received a loving affectionate raising by his mother, Tammy Gaithers and his father Johnathan Gaithers, a small software company CEO. He was never rich and spoiled, but he never wanted.

All that changed in middle school, when his father's company was bought out for stock in a company that tanked soon after. Left with nothing, Mitchell's family was torn apart, with his mother having to get a job, his father starting to drink, young Joanna running away several times, and young Mitchell having no idea what was going on or what he was supposed to do. At the same time, Mitch's somewhat preppy friends stopped wanting to hang out with the fairly sensitive, but rather thick boy who couldn't buy them anything and wanted to actually talk about his problems. He grew six inches in seventh grade, and put on eighty pounds, all of it solid muscle and went out for the rec football team where he became a star linebacker, mostly because he was able to ignore anything that got in his way, including nasty concussions. He actually had a mild concussion for two days from a nasty double tackle before anyone else noticed, or he thought to complain about it.

He was settling into his new life as an upper-lower class peon when another bombshell fell- his parents divorced. He and Joanna were caught in a whirlwind of emotion he couldn't understand, and as she experimented with the artistic, creative side of MTV culture, he punched the face in of the one person who would still deal with his occasional violent mood swings. Having lost his last friend he learned something- he liked the way it felt when he hit someone weaker than him.

Armed with this knowledge and his undeniable prowess as a football player, he completely re-did himself as a jock through and through, whose only hobby was beating up on nerds, being a jerk to girls, and performing marvels on the field. His best freinds are Gavin Messner and Mark Nielsen. His grades have suffered badly, as he is still very much a sensitive person, but he almost completely internalized the jock mind-set, and will follow the social hierarchy religiously. He is terrified of returning to the crippling loneliness he experienced before he joined a football team, and before he got the artificial high of hitting people. Most people see him as a petty thug and a total meat-head, but underneath of that he is extremely sensitive and almost poetic. He is such a good football player that he has a three quarters early decision scholarship to Notre Dame on football, and as a result he's contracted a violent and early case of senioritis, although his grades weren't that good to begin with.

Anything Else: His grades have suffered so much the past two semesters that he is in danger of expulsion if he doesn't pull it together.

He hasn't ever had a serious girlfriend, though he has had more than his fair share of one night stands. He is close to, but separate from the clique as defined by the other jocks, so some girls will go out with him for short periods of time until they realize that using him as an in is woefully ineffective.

He calls everyone except his closest friends "babe" (for the girls), "dude" (for the guys, and "bud" (for close acquaintances).

Name
Claire Whitmore

Age/Class
16 / Junior

Clique
Goths

After School Activity
Art Club

Brief History/Personality Description
Claire Whitmore has not always been rich and privileged. In fact, her parents could rightly be called members of the nouveau riche. After her father's business took off, suddenly her family was rolling in money like never before. Along with her newfound wealth came many changes for Claire. According to her parents, she was now above such things as an ordinary education. According to them, she deserved only the best. So her parents enrolled her in Brooklake.

Claire is still getting used to all the changes going on in her life. She's learned to cope by adopting her own personal, rather dark style although she is not your typical goth. It's true she is more reserved and withdrawn than most, but she's not into the whole angsty teenager thing. In fact, she prefers to keep her emotions to herself, looking down on those who wear their hearts on their sleeves or indulge in melodrama.

On the outside, Claire is a confident and down-to-earth individual, but secretly she is more melodramatic and whimsical than she would like. She has a great imagination and is very creative, and sometimes that leads her off on flights of fancy. Though she tries to be detached and aloof, her true demeanor comes shining through sometimes and then interesting things happen.

Anything else you might want to add
Claire is a talented writer and painter, talents that she inherited from her mother. Her father on the other hand is the head of his own software company, which has quickly taken off and earned the family a lot of money. Claire is also an only child, and a sometimes neglected child at that. Her mother is often too busy with her latest canvas to pay much attention to her daughter's problems, and her father is a workaholic. However, Claire has a pet cat named Bastet. She is also a new transfer to the school.

Student Application -
Name: Esteban Morales
Age/Class: (automatically 16/Junior)
Clique: Troublemakers
After School Activity: Detention
"Brief" History/Personality Description:

Childhood History:
Mrs. Morales is pregnant with her youngest of three children, Esteban, when she discovers her husband’s illicit affair with a younger, flirtier girl. After many heated arguments, they divorce, leaving Mrs. Morales in a perpetual state of depression. Her pregnancy feels bitter and long.

Members of the family say that this is where Esteban first acquired his intractability—from his mother’s foul temper.

In school, Esteban proves himself to be a bright student. Unfortunately, this compounds with his inborn desire for excitement and conflict. The result is long periods of boredom in school, relieved only by abundant misconduct.

Esteban quickly loses interest in school. He stops doing homework and scrapes by on D’s, usually saving his grade by scoring high on tests. He is a terror in class--talking back to teachers, inciting other troublemakers to join him in creating mayhem, and smack-talking his way into fights on a regular basis.

Inside, Esteban is an angry kid who needs attention—attention he doesn’t get from his father, who would come around once every few months and give him $20 to buy some ice cream, attention he has to fight for as the youngest of three kids, and attention doesn’t get from his mother, who seems to be perpetually working at one job or another.

Mijo, you’ll thank me when you need this money to go to college some day.” She would say about her work.

So when Mrs. Morales scolds, spanks, begs, and pleads with her son to improve his grades and stay out of fights, at least Esteban has his attention.

Early Adolescent History:
When Esteban is in junior high, his mother is diagnosed with ovarian cancer. One hysterectomy and months of chemo later, the cancer cells metastize. They spread to her other organs, showing up in her liver, stomach, and lungs. The chemo starts again.

After the metastasis and the grim realization that she hasn’t much time left, Esteban solemnly asks her to take him to the store. He asks her to buy him a pair of glasses so he can see what the teacher is writing on the blackboard. It looks all fuzzy from the back of the classroom.

The first bully who tries joking about his “four eyes,” he shoves into a locker. Later, a jock makes a flippant remark about his mother. Esteban sends him home needing six stitches. A fiasco in the juvenile courts and two month’s suspension later, Esteban comes back to school with all of his assigned make-up work completed. Teachers are astonished. Seven months later, he shows his mother the first straight A report card she’s ever seen in her family. She cries.

In two years, Mrs. Morales dies to ovarian cancer. The inchoate feelings Esteban’s been nursing all this time coalesce into a single, driving edict. Someday, he resolves, he’s going to be a doctor, and he’s going to find a cure.

Personality

Esteban enjoys smack talking others, doing so in a cocky, glib manner that is almost charming. While not manipulative, Esteban knows exactly what he’s doing when he pushes others’ buttons and how far to go. He has perfected this art in particular when it comes to his interactions with teachers. His is very critical of others’ faults, and is good at figuring out exactly what to say to make someone feel badly. He has no problem lying on the spot.

As critical as Esteban is of others’ shortcomings, he is even more critical of his own. He has deep self-loathing issues, though he puts on a cocky front. During his episodes of severe self-castigation, he blames himself for not doing more to help his mother, for not being smart enough, and for any little failure he's ever had in the past. His devil-may-care attitude reflects this lack of regard for himself and his own safety (due to the low value he puts on himself). This makes him particularly dangerous when he gets in fights.

As a result of his self-loathing issues, Esteban has a fear of intimacy. He puts up walls around himself with his behavior and doesn’t let anyone get too close, where they might be able to actually hurt him. He never tells anyone that he wants to be a doctor and fears his own failure. While he’s had many flings in the past with girls who dig the whole “bad boy” persona, he has never had or wanted an actual relationship.

Esteban has an adventurous personality and is easily bored. He looks favorably at any other students who are also adventurous, aren’t afraid to break the rules, and go against the grain of conformity. He is disdainful of anyone “boring,” who lives their life by the book; however, he does respect intelligence, which makes him ambivalent towards nerds. He dislikes rich, privileged kids who get everything handed to them on a silver platter.

While he has a bad reputation, Esteban has never picked a fight with someone “lower” on the food chain. He will openly mock nerds (and anyone else for that matter), but roughing them up and preying on the weak isn’t his style.

Esteban is extremely serious about his grades and will not severely jeopardize them. He is a quick learner and a particularly strong lateral thinker. He has thorough knowledge of what crimes count as infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies and is careful to avoid anything that would result in a serious penalty in juvenile court. As a result, Esteban knows many creative, nonviolent ways to prank and harass others for revenge. Since trying to turn around his grades, he is less likely to get into serious fist fights with other students, but he will happily provoke others into attacking him first so that he can fight them in “self-defense.”

Esteban is very close to his older brother and sister and believes in the importance of family. He is fiercely loyal to anyone he considers a friend, but he will still “play rough” with them. He hates his father and rarely sees him. His oldest sister, Marissa, is his legal guardian.

Anything else you might want to add:

Esteban is almost always in detention after school, and he doesn’t mind. He uses the time to finish homework and study. After his mother died, he went to live with his oldest sister in a tiny 1 bedroom apartment, and he can never find privacy there. In fact, if there is a single day when he knows he won’t be in detention, he usually conspires to find some reason go—showing up, then saying he forget he didn’t have detention today.

He gets mostly A’s and some B’s, and he usually tries to hide his good grades from others. When discovered, he lies and says he studies so that his probate officer (which he currently doesn’t have) won’t lock him up. He never talks about his mother’s death with anyone, and only his friends would be aware of her death.

At home, his family doesn’t live in poverty, but money is tight. Esteban has an after-school job working as a car mechanic with his brother, Rafael. His sister went to cosmetology school and works as a hair stylist. On weekends he volunteers at the local hospital to build up his resume for college.

Esteban wears his hair long to cover up headphones. Rather than listening to music, he records himself reading class notes and listens to them during boring classes, detention, or work. If anyone asks what he's listening to, he lies.

He dresses in simple, solid, dark clothing—usually a black t-shirt and jeans. He has a strong, lean build. He is attractive, with dark eyes and eyebrows. He has several scars from his past multitudinous fights.

He is bilingual, speaking English and Spanish. While he is capable of speaking perfect English, Esteban usually affects the leaning swagger of a Mexican accent. He does this to keep up his image, knowing that it makes people underestimate his intelligence and allows him to play dumb when he wants.

Picture:



FAMILY INFO:




Esteban currently lives in a one-bedroom apartment with his sister, Marissa (22), who is his legal guardian. His brother, Rafael (19) used to live with them. It was extremely crowded; both Esteban and Rafael would sleep on couches in the common room, and Marissa got the actual bedroom to herself. Marissa has recently kicked Rafael out of the apartment (read below).

As the oldest, Marissa has always been the responsible one in the family. She helped raise Esteban when he was younger. Although she had the opportunity to go to college in another city, Marissa decided to stay in Brooklake to help take care of her mother while she was still ill. When their mother died, Marissa was the one who took care of all the paperwork and kept the family together. She took it upon herself to become Rafael and Esteban's legal guardian, which again forced her to stay in Brooklake. She helped support the family by working at a hair salon and has recently finished a two-year training in cosmetology school.

When she gets to have a social life, Marissa is an acceptance-seeker. In high school, she joined the cheer squad in order to gain more friends. She often dates guys who Esteban thinks are total assholes, and now that he's finished puberty, he looks forward to when she finally breaks up with them because now he actually stands a chance when he tries to beat them up.

Rafael has always been a ladies' man. Since he was little, he would almost exclusively talk to and charm pretty girls. On multiple occasions, he has hooked up with girl friends that Marissa brought over to the apartment. For a while, it's great... until the girl realizes that Rafael isn't in it for the long haul. Then they turn into a teary broken mess, and Marissa gets pissed something furious. After he slept with two of her friends, Marissa warned him not to do it again. He did it again anyway in the worst way possible, with two at once, so she kicked his ass out, chasing him with a rolling pin and a string of profanities.

Rafael works with Esteban at an auto shop. He drives a souped up car that he says is a real p***y magnet and takes vocational classes at the college nearby. He often invites Esteban to college parties. On special days, Rafael drives him out of the city 2 hours to go party at a college that has a 2:1 women to male ratio. Esteban appreciates all his brother's help and his tips, but hooking up with women isn't a focus for him like it is for Rafael.

All the Morales love alcohol more than they really should. Of all of them, Esteban is the worst when it comes to drinking.

Name: Abby (Abigail) Vigilanti
Age/Class: automatically 16/Junior
Clique: jock
After School Activity: Football (kicker)
Brief History/Personality Description:

Some people just seem like they're born with all their sh*t together. Pretty, popular, rich, star athlete, and a kickass last name to boot, Abby Vigilanti seems like one of those people, at least to the casual observer.

But life wasn't always so rose-tinted for Abby. She grew up in the city's armpit, where all the other poor kids like her lived. As a child in elementary school, she wasn't popular at all. She had an awful bowl-shaped haircut and wore her older brother's hand-me-downs, so she was often mistaken for a boy. When she was teased by the other kids, which happened fairly regularly, she reacted loudly and violently, and she often got into playground fights.

Growing up in the shadow of her older brother, Daniel, Abby was a bit of a tomboy. It's not that she didn't like girly things; it's just that anytime Abby moved in that direction, her brother would tease her about it relentlessly. Most of her friends in elementary school were boys, and they were generally troublemakers.

But having an older brother definitely had its benefits. When Abby would come home after school, she would tag along with Danny to his sports games. Abby practiced sports with his older friends, and she was a natural. Even with the age disparity, she could hold her own in their games. She loved sports--the release of physical energy, the pride of a game well-played, and the support of her teammates. Sure, the older boys might give her shit about her hair and small size when they meet her, but that would all fade away under the solidarity of playing on the same team.

Two things changed everything for Abby. With the advent of middle school came school-sanctioned sports. That was the first thing.

Abby Vigilanti exploded on the scene of school sports. Every morning during announcements, the speaker would extol her deeds to the entire school: Abby Vigilanti saves..., Abby Vigilanti scores..., Abby Vigilanti assists.... It wasn't long before the name "Abby Vigilanti" became synonymous with school pride. You couldn't support sports at Brooklake without implicitly supporting Abby Vigilanti as well.

For the first time, Abby found herself thrust into the limelight and into an elite circle of "friends" who were eager to get to know the school's star athlete. She began hanging out with more jocks and preps. And, as if by osmosis, Abby's appearance began changing. She started copying the preps' makeup and how they dressed. At the same time, she saw less and less of her old friends and eventually lost touch with them completely.

Accompanying Abby's meteoric rise to fame in middle school, her father's upstart dot-com company had its own rise as well. Several years earlier, her father changed his company's business model to focus on advertising. It paid off big time, and in three years his company skyrocketed from small potatoes to a multi-million dollar asset.

That was the second thing. Money and fame, they say, both change a person. And Abby Vigilanti was no exception.

By the time Abby started high school, her family had moved out of the barrio and into a mansion in the suburbs. She was dressing in expensive designer clothing and was one of the most popular girls in school. In her freshmen year, she joined five different sports teams, and she even made the varsity team for soccer and track as a lowly 9th grader.

She currently is in the varsity teams for soccer, basketball, track, volleyball, and is the kicker for the football team.

Personality - "Preppy tough girl"

Though she no longer looks like a tomboy, Abby still has a lot of the attitude she had when she was younger. She is a hyper-assertive tough girl. She can be ruthless if competition is involved, and she hates losing. If she thinks that anyone has tried to slight her, she will call them out, loudly. She gets very defensive if her pride is involved. While she will attack others verbaly, Abby hasn't been in a fight in many years.

Like most other preps, Abby is preoccupied with image and appearance. She is mortified when she sees pictures of herself from her childhood where she looks like an awkward boy. She is quick to judge others based on their appearance, though given her own transformation, she doesn't always write someone off immediately if they have potential (are attractive).

Abby has become elitist since gaining all her fame. She knows that she's like royalty in the school, and while she isn't openly mean, she ignores the "lower" classes and is dismissive of them. The only exceptions are when she sees a boy she thinks is cute or if one of the rabble happens to play sports on the team.

Because of her incredible sports record, Abby considers herself untouchable. She acts with impunity, knowing that her transgressions will be forgiven or overlooked because she's Abby Vigilanti, and what would Brooklake women's sports be without her? She slacks off in class and openly skips classes, knowing that her teachers will usually fudge the last few percentage points and bump her up to a D or C. She also isn't afraid of being caught talking to the "wrong" type of people because her reputation will easily rebound from such associations; however, Abby usually doesn't want to talk to those sorts of people anyway.

Abby is somewhat self-centered, which gives her tunnel vision when it comes to interacting with others. That means that she isn't good at reading people's emotions and motives. This makes her easier to manipulate by more socially savvy individuals.

Right now, Abby has two main motivations in life--play sports and meet boys. However, Abby has hard time finding the flirtatious vixen inside of her, and she isn't a good flirt. If there is a boy she likes, she starts trying to act like "one of the guys" around him and is more likely to playfully punch him than to flutter an eyelash at him. She has not had very many boyfriends in the past and is a little envious of flirtatious girls who seem to have guys eating from the palm of their hand.

She is very much still trying to reconcile her tomboyish self with her emerging sexuality.

Student Application - Donnie Kang
"Speak softly and carry a big tablet PC. A taser doesn't hurt either."


Name: Donnie Kang
Age/Class: 16/Junior
Clique: Achiever
After School Activity: Newspaper



Brief History/Personality Description:
Donnie never had many friends. His parents immigrated from China and were in their late 30s when they had him, which left him with very few people to talk to growing up. His parents, an engineer and a research geneticist, raised him with high expectations and distant displays of affection. Due to their influence, Donnie's thinking style has always been logical and structured, and his speaking mannerisms were riddled with idiosyncrasies reflecting this.

As Donnie grew up, he spent most of his time either by himself or speaking to adults. He occupied himself with several different hobbies. He took the obligatory piano lessons required of every Asian kid, tinkered with electronics, engaged in drawing & painting, studied old college textbooks, and read voraciously.

That passion for reading gave him a knack for writing. Though he found it difficult to vocally express himself in terms that others could understand, he was an excellent writer. When he was a Freshman, his English teacher mentioned that he should consider writing for the school newspaper and that it might look good on a college application. Thus, Donnie started his regular column, "Get This," in the student newspaper. And since then, he's gained a lot more self confidence and notoriety.

Since he tends to be both critical and misanthropic, he regularly lampoons and derides multiple groups in his column. No one is safe. The most regular targets of his scathing writing are the preps and jocks, though he spares no one. He will also lambaste school administration, personnel, and some of the other less popular cliques at school. While many students love his column (even when they are the target of his invectives), he has earned many more enemies because of it. He receives an 8:1 ratio of hate mail to fan mail. Love it or hate it, most people can't stop themselves from reading his editorial.

Donnie is a technophile. He loves getting new tech gadgets, tinkering with them, and using them to increase the efficiency of all his daily tasks. He avoids using paper like the plague and instead takes all his notes on a tablet PC. He carries around a voice recorder, which he speaks into to quickly record daily events; later, he plugs the audio file from the recorder into his computer and uses a speech to text program to convert it into easily accessible raw data. Due to all the antipathy stirred by his column, Donnie has taken to carrying a taser around. He has used it to defend himself twice so far. He's thinking about getting one of those neat jackets with the taser-action on contact already built in, but they are currently cost prohibitive.

Donnie has a lot of trouble relating to people. He approaches everything with a logical, structured view and processes his thoughts as mechanically as a robot. Since the beginning of high school, he decided to approach interpersonal relationships with the same study-oriented approach he took with other aspects of his life. This lead him to study body language and psychology. Now, he is capable of at least appearing "normal" in conversation, though his idiosyncracies show again once he has to engage in more than superficial banter.

Donnie has not had many relationships in the past due to multiple factors. He tends to be emotionally aloof, and he holds high standards for both himself and potential girlfriends. He is also extremely serious-minded and would prefer to save relationships for college. Or after college. Or after graduate school. Or after post-graduate work. Whenever it happens, the point is that it shouldn't interfere with his focus for work.

Donnie requires a lot of order and control in his life. He keeps everything meticulously clean and organized, often setting his things on his desk at perfect ninety degree angles. (He loves a well-designed user interface!) He strives for efficiency and perfection in all things and will spend hours dissecting and re-assembling his computer in order to shave off 2 minutes from its startup time, since those 2 minutes every day will accumulate over several months and result in a greater payoff than the initial investment.

Extra factoids:
In addition to the above, Donnie has recently expanded his piano skills into more experimental music using mixers and synthesizers. He "works out" by engaging in long, healthy sessions of Dance Dance Revolution and is insanely good at it--combining his ultra-fast mental processing with his militaristic discipline. He does a pretty decent pop and lock, which is the result of hours of examining the dance style, breaking it down into its component parts, and attempting to replicate it.

Other clubs/teams that he would be part of (provided that Brooklake has them) are: Debate team, Science Olympiad, Robotics, Mathletes, any sort of AP or NHS club. He's still a good artist (mostly due to his perfectionist nature), but that is not his calling.

"Fine," the retort snaps out like a slap across his cheek, and Esteban shrugs slightly. If she says she's fine, she's fine. He ain't gonna press the issue. He picks up on the anger in her voice with some satisfaction. Anger and fear are a heckuva lot more fun to play with than indifference. And there was something to knowing you could change others--could make them scared, angry, and rattle them up a bit.

He enjoys the shocked look on Katie's face when he takes a swig from the bottle and realizes that she had no idea what was inside it, despite how distinctive the smell of tequila is. The same smell he's woken up to one too many times, lying face first on the floor with a hangover the size of Texas This fresa musn'tve had a drink of hard liquor in her whole life, he figures. The thought of Katie Byrd getting sloshed enters his mind, and now that he thinks about it he's kinda curious to see what she's like.

There isn't much difference between a drunk Esteban and a sober Esteban except that one is louder and Esteban-like, but more. But for most people, a little liquid courage that washes away fear and inhibition changes their personalities. Since it's Esteban's best guess that Katie lives like a rabbit in a cage--perpetually in a state of some fear, he thinks a drink would do her some good. Unwind a few strings and help her face her fears. Mostly though, he's amused by the idea of seeing her wasted.

When she dabs at her eyes and refuses with a "No, thank you, plenty of better places to get hydrocarbons," he scoffs back. What planet is this chick from? And reaching back into his memory for what the f*** a hydrocarbon is, he wonders who the hell would knock a few shots down for some hydrocarbon chains? No, it was a different chemical group all together that interested him--the alcohol group.

"Jesus, don't be such a nerd. You drink this s*** to get smashed, not for a bunch of hydrocarbons or whatever the f***." He doesn't retract the bottle, doesn't back away at her refusal. Instead, he gives it another small shake at her, urging her to take it. He continues in a voice that's meant to be more gentle but sounds like a gruff father telling his cabritos to finish eating their dinner. "Here. Don't be scared, chica--it only burns for a couple seconds."

Alarm clock.
Why was the alarm clock ringing? Was today a school day? Had yesterday been? He knew the day before that was break. With a gigantic effort Mitch opened his eyes to look at the calendar that his mother had hung near his bed. It was a Teusday... maybe that meant he should get up. Blearily he knocked the alarm clock off of the table and sat up, scaring the cat as he did so.

His mother called up the stairs a moment later that it was time for school and he yelled something back to her that might have been assent. He didn't know if there was time to get dressed nicely, so he just put on his jersey from last year and a pair of jeans. Hardly the most attractive attire, but he knew he could work it, and besides which, football players could wear what they wanted. It was all part of the mystique or something- he'd never seen anyone mock his choice of clothes since he'd beaten up that kid in middle school who thought he was wearing a girl's button down shirt.

He managed to catch the bus, as his mom had taken away his keys when his grades started precipitously dropping, but none of the freshies or sophomores on the bus brought it up. They knew better. When he got into school he wistfully walked past the gym where some of the other football players and some people from the other teams were working out. He couldn't risk being late for class, or tutoring, or whatever the hell the guidance counselor had arranged for his morning so that he didn't get in trouble or get any dumber. He wasn't going to cut, not after they had threatened him with suspension if he did it again, and not after he'd gotten a letter from Notre Dame that he'd lose his scholarship if they got another letter from the school. He'd wanted to break down the guidance counselor's door, show the little twerp that it was a bad idea to pull a stunt like that, but after a bit of thought he'd decided it wouldn't do him any good.

So he was in class on time like a good little drone, and took his notes and did his problems like a good little almost nerd-let, and like the transcendent meat-head he was, he got all of the problems wrong, did all of the work wrong, and got a pathetic score on the classwork, even though he'd copied from someone who'd gotten a good score. He was too dumb to even copy right.

Lunch was a relief and he'd sat with Gavin and Mark, and they'd discussed a football play in excruciating detail that had made the current object of Gavin's affections, Lisa Yung, nearly fall asleep at the table, and had made Maddy Fenway, who'd taken to hanging out with him since she and Matt Sidle had broken up, leave in an exasperated huff. Mitch didn't care that much, the girls were very much transient objects, and there would be two different ones in another week, so it didn't really matter. After Madison left, Mark had jokingly said that the only one who could keep a girl ought to find her, and the three had parted company amicably, Mark to find his girl, Alex, or Dylan, or Adrienne or someone with a guy's name, Gavin to talk to coach Benwick about the play they'd come up with and Mitch to attempt to bull through the biology problems that they'd been assigned for class, and he hadn't had a chance to finish. They were all multiple choice, multiple choice was easy, right?

As he read through the first one he wondered how terrible it would be to wind up at the community college, since keeping his scholarship seemed less and less likely as he looked at those damn problems about stupid cell biology.

((Approachable
And Alissa, I hope you don't mind that I did pre-story for Mark?))

The humor of a story on the internet is in direct inverse proportion to how accurate the reporting is.

(((ooc: Furry - Technically, Matt was the one to break up with Madison, a couple of days after the party where he and Dylan hooked up. )))


Having spent the last couple of years of her life being targeted by the majority of the popular crowd, for everything from wearing the "wrong" clothes to sleeping around, there were many reasons why Leigh despised them. They didn't just act as though they were better than everyone else, they also truly believed they were, and everything and everyone that didn't live up to their standards was usually written off with a simple yet most expressive "Ew". They abused their popularity, by exploiting other people, often using them for a variety of selfish purposes, and laughing at them the rest of the time, all depending on what was on their agenda that particular day. They were piranhas, feeding hungrily off of everyone in their surroundings, and Leigh hated them for the way that they would manipulate and orchestrate situations to their liking, sometimes for no better reason than for a mere laugh.

However, while she did despise how they used manipulation for their own amusement, it didn't mean she herself didn't know how to wield that very same ability. She was far from being as simpleminded and coarse as some tended to believe, yet quite a few had been made to discover that she was not. She had a good amount of wit, she had managed to talk and act her way out of her fair share of the trouble she got herself into, and there had been times when she had made a desirable scenario into actual reality. She just usually didn't, unless she really had to, and she most certainly did not do it as a way of kicking people who were already down.

In the current situation with Natalie Cardew, however, that would hardly be the case, as Natalie didn't exactly seem like the fragile, victimized kind of person, nor did Leigh feel any particular desire to take a shot at her. She dressed nicely - well, if you liked that prepish style, anyway - and she did have an air about her that made it difficult for Leigh NOT too picture her with the rest of the pretty, popular ones, but at the same time, Leigh couldn't remember ever seeing her hang out and get along with the preps, save for that brief fling she'd had with Matt Sidle. Plus, Natalie had obviously approached J.D., and indirectly Leigh as well, and seemed serious about it to a point that made it hard to believe it was all just an act. She was even sitting down at their table; something no self-respecting prep would ever do, even if they were acting with an ulterior motive.
Bottom line; with all this taken into account, Leigh couldn't really figure out where Natalie stood, and so before she made her first slightly more thorough assessment of her, she would put the pretty brunette to the test, using her own ability to bring about the ideal kind of situation, the kind of situation that was bound to give her at least a clue. Which was all exactly what she did, when she brought up J.D.'s satire of Matt Sidle, knowing it would force Natalie to pick a side. If not through words, then at least through reaction. Alot of J.D.'s artwork was simply brilliant in that sense, because while he may not have a quick wit and a sharp tongue, when given time to elaborate on his opinion in a way that he mastered - by drawing - as opposed to struggling with the words of his rather limited vocabulary, the result often ended up far more cutting than any comment ever could.

Sure enough, the Sidle satire got Leigh exactly what she wanted; a reaction, and one that was even followed by words to match. When Natalie's eyes locked on the drawing, and her mind had taken that initial moment to connect the dots of whom it portrayed, her face lit up with a smile. A genuine smile, Leigh could tell, because there had been no split second look of shock or horror to be quickly hidden behind a mask of amusement. No shock, no horror, only a bit of surprise, and alot of amusement.

"Well, journalism is all about the truth, after all", Natalie started as the smile, filled with both delight and appreciation, lingered on her rosy lips. "It's brilliant."

Though soon thereafter, it did still fade, as she seemed to pause for a few seconds to think and contemplate, knowing as well as both Leigh and J.D. that the chances of such a caustic satire being approved and showing up in the school paper, were practically non-existent. Still, while it was a real shame that they couldn't take such a shot at Matt Sidle's gigantic ego, the drawing had served it's purpose well; it had given Leigh a chance to test Natalie on behalf of herself and J.D., and it had also shown that while most thought J.D. incapable of delivering insults with more of a punch than "Your mother!", he did actually have more brains than that. And that he was a good enough artist to capture the details that made a caricature or a cartoon easily recognizable as the person they portrayed. Which really wasn't an easy thing to do.

"Problem is", Natalie said after a few moments, addressing what the two troublemakers had already known was going to be an issue, "I can't get this past the radar."

Another brief pause followed as her eyes narrowed slightly, in a manner true to that of someone who's thinking hard, apparently far more unwilling to let the matter go than Leigh had expected her to be.

"But something this good deserves to be shared", Natalie finally continued, and then leaned forward as though she was about to embark on a session of conspiratory whispering, yet her voice remained audible, albeit somewhat lowered, "so... If you're up for it, I have an idea to make sure everyone sees it anyway. Matt deserves it."

Their curiousity piqued, both troublemakers had leaned in as well, to listen, apparently drawn in by Natalie's dramatic flair of secrecy, but with their reactions towards the end of her statement turning out somewhat different from one another. J.D. looked mostly just puzzled, as though he had either expected an entirely different reaction from Natalie, perhaps thinking she was still carrying a torch for Matt and would take offense, or as though he was trying to figure out just how they could go about ensuring that everyone saw the drawing, without printing it in the school paper, while Leigh on the other hand seemed nothing short of intrigued. Another mischievous twinkle had appeared in her piercing eyes, along with one of slight approval at Natalie's apparent dislike of Matt - though perhaps she should have expected it, considering not only that he'd dumped Natalie, but also how he'd dumped her - and thus she was the first of the two troublemakers to urge Natalie to go on.

"So he does", she said with a rather smug smile sliding over her lips. "We're in. Right?"

At the last moment, just as J.D. was starting to shoot her a glare for taking it upon herself to speak for him as well, Leigh turned her head to look at him and acknowledge him as someone that might actually have an opinion of his own, and in doing so, turned the glare into a slight shrug instead, since once he was no longer treated as an appendage of sorts, he could only agree.

"I guess", he said, with his usual level of (hardly) ecstatic enthusiasm, after which Leigh turned her gaze back to Natalie.

"Shoot", she said.
