For those who cannot afford private school, the local alternative is Everwood High. This school is public, in a crumbling building closer to the bad part of town. If given the choice, parents would rather have their children attending St. Joseph's, so the students of Everwood are generally of lower class. They have not uniform, and their mascot is the falcon.
Between the two schools, there isn't much interaction. The St. Joseph students stay away from the public school 'troublemakers', and the Everwood kids don't care for the 'rich snots'. Going to different schools, and without much in common, the students of these to schools have never had any reason to socialize with each other. Until now. Over the school holidays, a fire broke out in the Everwood School Building, and it was deemed unsafe for students. The closest high school being St. Joseph's the academy opened its doors to the students of Everwood. And come the first day back from break, will the students be able to look past their stereotypes of each other, or will they always be the bad kids and the rich kids to each other?
I know I didn't give very much information on Everwood, but seeing as the setting of this roleplay will be St. Joseph's, I think that it's more important to know about. Besides, Everwood is just an average public school.
For this roleplay, all I ask is that you write at least two paragraphs in each of your posts, be literate, keep everything PG-13, and respect RolePlayGateway's rules.
Also, please try to create interesting characters, and keep gender and school ratios equal.
I recommend reading a few posts from the old IC about anybody's characters that were here before.

These poor, unfortunate souls were once a part of this great world, but have been abandoned. Why don't you consider viewing their profiles and making a decision on whether or not you can roleplay them accurately?
(I told ya in my character sheet that Kaine would get violent when he's mad... lol. I wanna see a real fight start, some time. But not now. Let the flames buuuurn. XD)
Tansie saw her broken pens on the floor so she picked them up and threw them in the trashcan. Then the teacher had walked in. Tansie walked up to him. "May I please be exused from this class I c-cant handle being in here right now" She whispered so only the teacher could hear. He nodded "Return when you can" After that being said she left the room and then when she got out into the hall she ran to the bathroom. She washed her hand off better. Then walked out and saw Kaine walking toward the office. Tansie walked by then thought of somewhere she could go to get rid of the feeling of punching something. She didn't want to wreck anything in the school though so she had froze in her tracks trying to think.
(ROFL, dream, had't you placed the teacher in the class at the beginning? so why didnt the guy do anything?)
Eve still seemed pretty out of it as Jake helped her back into her seat; she could barely stand, much less say anything. What Kaine had just did stuck in her mind, and she tried helplessly to remember when he had ever acted like that, before. It wasn't until she felt a throbbing pain in her elbow that she was pulled from her "trance", wincing. Jake's words disturbed her, a bit. Had they planned to make him upset and get him in trouble, like this? She nodded in agreement when Jake said that he had a temper, and tears rolled down her cheeks. "H-He's right..." She whispered, staring at her desk as her shoulders shook with silent sobs. "I-I should have done something... but I-I couldn't... ow..." The impact with that desk was definitely going to cause a bruise. "Eve, do you need to go to the nurse?" The teacher asked her, having noticed that she seemed to be in pain. Silently, Eve shook her head and laid it against her desk, burying her face in her arms. The teacher wasn't so sure, though. "Are you certain, Miss Greenlocke?" Eve nodded again, without bringing her head up off of the desk. Her elbow did hurt, but it was only a small bruise. There was no reason to go all of the way to the nurse. Unfortunately, with her head down on her desk, she couldn't see how her newfound "friend" Tansie had stormed out of the classroom, upset. If she had, she could have done something to help.
"He actually expects me to follow him to the principal's office?" Al asks but gets up anyway. She sighs and waves slightly to the others. "Guess I might as well go. Don't want him causing anymore drama. I'm sorry again Eve. I hope everything gets better for you." She gives her a slight smile then walks out of the room after Kaine. She catches up to him in the hall. "You're a prick, you know that right? Why'd you shove Eve? She wasn't doing anything to you. That back there was between you and me, you didn't have to pull her into it too." She shakes her head and walks faster towards the office. "Jackass," she mutters. She throws Kaine a glare then stops right before going into the office. She turns towards Kaine and puts her hands on her hips. "Why exactly are we going in here Kaine? I mean really? What's the point?"
(Your post showed up as I was writing this hikari, I had to say what I said)
(OOC: Gah, I hope that was okay... Sorry if it sucked. >_<)
Kaine was thankful when they all left him alone, but Tansie suddenly started up again, asking him if he was alright. It was a sweet gesture, but he wasn't in the mood to deal with anyone, right now. "Yeah," He said, not even facing her. "I'm fine." And with that, he went into the principal's office, only stopping to say to Al, "You're next." And then, he was gone.
After it was over she walked out of the band room then back into the school. She then got back to the class and took her seat. She looked at Eve. She was going to give the sheet to Eve right now but she would wait until later to do that. She did hope Kaine was okay. Then she pulled her notebook out and took her pen and started to write down all the notes that she had missed.
(No it was good! Really! You kept her in character real well :) Thanks Hikari! I really appreciate it! I felt like I was holding the RP up some by not posting so yeah...)
Once they were both in the office, Kaine explained about the fight. To say the least, the principal was NOT happy, especially since it involved Kaine, so her punishment was not light. "This is quite the predicament," She sighed, standing up and glancing at both of them. "It would not do to simply expel you. From now on, the two of you will be doing community service work every day after school for three weeks. This way, you can learn to work in harmony with each other and stop petty fights like this from happening again in the future." Kaine was shocked. "M-Ma'am, that's not fair!" He said, standing up. "I-I apologize, but even you must understand that I can't work with this... this imbecile! I will accept any other punishment, ma'am, but please don't make me work with her." The principal simply shook her head, walking around the desk to push on Kaine's shoulder and make him sit back down. "I expected more from you," She said, softly. "Accept your punishment, Kaine, because you deserved it, this time. Pushing a student is entirely unacceptable." She glanced back at Al, placing her hands on her hips. "And I can tell that you're going to be trouble, around here." She looked at both of them. "I expect both of you to be on your best behavior from now on, understood? Next time, your punishment will be much more severe. Now go back to class, and come back to see me tomorrow morning for your first assignment." Kaine got up immediately, leaving the room before anyone had a chance to say anything else. This was so irritating...! How had he gotten dragged into HER drama? Stuff like this never happened when the Everwood students weren't here. "Damn pests..." He muttered, clenching his hands into fists, again. This time, he felt the pain and winced, looking at his bloody palms. A sigh escaped his lips and he let his hands drop to his sides, walking towards the bathroom to go wash them off.
Eve had sat up, now, and focused diligently on the notes she was taking, like the good student she was. All of this was too hard, so she wanted to think about something else. Hard work could take her mind off of Kaine, off of problems, off of her sore elbow, off of... of everything! Sadly, there was never enough work to go around, and she found herself tapping her pencil anxiously against her eraser, glancing at the clock. Wasn't class almost over? If it ended, she could go find something to do for student council, or... even practice for the play auditions. I guess, even through all of this... something in me still wants to do this. Huh.
Eve glanced back up at Tansie as she handed her the paper, suddenly extremely grateful and yet dreading deeply. "Thank you," She said with a kind smile. "I really appreciate it. This helps a lot." So, while she wasn't taking notes, she worked on memorizing her lines silently, trying to play out in her head how she might say them. Unfortunately, thinking about acting that way was easier than actually doing it. This character was ridiculous! And yet, she smiled at the lines, as if she could truely pull this off. What a laugh!
David looked at his seat, blank paper on the middle, what should have had a short story in the making, or something like that.

Now I've grown better and got a new laptop that is actually mine and I don't have to share very often :D
I kind of miss that rp. I mean I go back and read it once in awhile. I just wish I was a better writer in that rp. I mean I had really bad grammar and spelling back then. I am sooooo much better now :)
Because it just seemed so movie-like and cheesey.
"(She tried to be a monkey and swing from a vine and fell into the water, catching her foot on something at the bottom...)"
I would respond to this inside the RP but I have nothing to post with my character :P so I wont bother risking my chance of getting yelled at :P
Anyways back to what you said Gazimu , you still remember that part of the rp??? you know in the plane crash one? haha.
That wasn't what happened though :P Although there was a rope swing. But my one friend didn't want to go on it :(
It was just simply the fact that a big waved came in I swallowed a whole bunch of water choked and the wave pushed me down not being able to breathe. Then my one friend pulled me out of the water onto to the rope that divides the boating area and swimming area..I was in the boating area. That is my short version. I got more details and what not about what happened. But I wont explain it all.
I haven't seen much posting since I've been gone..
Oh and there has been a changed of plans..for my trip.
I will be leaving the 16th instead and I will be gone for two days come back. Then I will leave again in an hour for about three days.
I'm sorry for not replying very much, guys. My explanation is in my last post in the IC. >_<
I'll try to stay more on top of it, but I'm being smashed by work, lately. :S
