Introduction

Hello, my children, and welcome to my school! I'm certain you'll fit in very nicely, and find all your belongings situated perfectly up in your dorm rooms. Oh, don't fret, my darlings- it's just my way! I know you all very, very well.

Pay no mind to the name! I just, perhaps, thought it had a nice ring. I do believe you can call me Mother Goose, if you so desire. After all, my name IS Arabella Goose, and I aim to treat you all as I would my own.

I know it must all seem so strange! Just children, torn away from your families. But I assure you, your families are safe. You are safe. No harm shall come to a single hair on your tiny, gosling heads.

This school is here to help you.

Help you grow. Help you be smarter. Help you through the toughest times of your life.

Help you become what you want to become...

...And help you become what you must.


We need these spots fulfilled:
  • ENGLISH- Perhaps the teacher of this teaches rhyme? In general a fun class for writing, learning grammar, and that sort of thing!
  • MATH- If Sally has four apples and she gives away two, how many apples does she have? The teacher of this teaches mathematics of all sorts!
  • SOCIAL STUDIES/HISTORY- Current problems, past problems, who cares? It's all the same! This subject is where we learn from our mistakes and continue on.
  • SCIENCE- Medicine, biology, chemistry-! Such a fun class!
  • MECHANICS- A place to learn mechanics of all sorts! Blends with science at times.
  • FOREIGN LANGUAGES- Parlez vous Francais? This class teaches you other languages from all around the world! Be warned- said languages may not be from the world as we know them...
  • PE- Drop and gimme twenty! Maybe the favorite class of a drill sergeant, this is a class for gaining strength and doing other physical activities. Don't know how to swim? Maybe they'll teach you!
  • MUSIC- Oh, the sweet sound of music! The class for the artistic! While the title is music, other art forms come into play frequently- drama, painting, writing...
  • OUTDOORS SKILLS- Dealing with or taming animals, planting gardens, hunting, gathering, or other such things- what isn't covered via science or PE, this class covers it. Perhaps there's more than one teacher!

Now let's get moving!

Toggle Rules

  1. No Mary Sues. The bio tries to steer clear of that, but even so.
  2. Please, use a nursery rhyme character. That's what this RP is for! If you have a character idea, but aren't sure if it'd be acceptable or not, just PM me. I don't bite.
  3. Don't take an already used character unless they're put in the orphanage. We have a few already set up for the setting.
  4. Make some teachers with your students! We have lots of different subjects for them to teach. Make 'em based on nursery rhymes as well, or even a conglomeration of some- make 'em as wacky as you want!
  5. Not a rule, but suggested that you play multiple characters. Some MAY (read may, not will!) have quite a bit of bad things happen to them in the RP, after all...

Character Portrait: Arabella Goose

The bright sun hits your eyes. Where are you? What is this place? Why are there so many kids around as well- and why did the gate swing open and admit you when nobody was there to unlock it? So many questions, and, as of yet, no one around to answer them. You and the others set off down the dirt path. The entire yard, almost, this side of the huge, crooked castle, is a garden- every visible inch filled with gorgeous, well-kept flowers. Tulips, roses, forget-me-nots, bleeding hearts, magnolias, daffodils, sunflowers, lilies...

And then you see her. Sitting on a rocker at the far end of the path, down at the base of the steps. A massive light green dress coating the ground around her, a bonnet sitting atop her head, and small spectacles on the end of the bridge of her nose. She looks kind. She looks like your grandmother- sitting there so sweet you'd swear she were about to offer you cookies and milk. Upon her lap rests a large book.

"Hello, my darlings!" She greets you with a simple smile. She speaks to you by name. Your defenses are dropped around this little old lady. You find yourself enthralled by her, and, perhaps, slightly in love. When suddenly, she stands up, and leads you inside. "You must meet your teachers!" She tells you, "And of course get something to eat! No child of mine will ever go hungry, my little goslings!"

And so here you are! Seated firmly at long tables, close to every one of your new classmates. Piled high are sweets of all sorts, as well as meat, grains, vegetables- whatever else you could ever want, here it is, right here and now, and you can stuff your plates to the brim with whatever you want.

The nice old lady comes to the front of the room.

"Oh, I'm dreadfully sorry, my dears!" She cries, holding a wrinkled cheek, "I'm afraid I forgot to tell you a few things."

The lights gave a small flicker. A few other people were coming out to stand with her now, all adults.

"You may call me Mother Goose. And this is my school."

Thoughts of home ran through her head....

What if I was running back to my parents to apologize right now, what if I was being held by my mother.... So many what if's... But she couldn't turn back now. She wouldn't even know where to begin if she were to turn around.

Pushing her hair back, she began to snap out of her own daydream and looked around as she noticed gates in front of her. They swung open like arms reaching out wide, inviting her in... She pushed her dirt-covered fingers across her worn and torn jeans, her fingernails catching on each tear and frayed piece of string. The garden was beautiful, flowers delicately placed in large arrangements, the vines weaving through the gate's openings...

Eyes weary and tired, she stared at the sweet lady standing in front of her. The woman's voice was whimsical, like out of a child's fantasy, or daydream. Of course, Arabella had been walking all night after leaving her bike and many other things behind.

Just like out of a child's daydream...

The old lady suddenly gathers the group in, foods piled high and she introduces the teachers. Arabella keeps quiet during all this, trying to comprehend what was going on.

"You may call me, Mother Goose. And this is my school." She states with full pride. Arabella's defense walls seemed to be waning with each passing tick of the grandfather clock against the wall, this lady... Mother Goose, as she so proudly declared herself as, seemed to have this aura about her. Emanating a sweet, grandmother-like way, Arabella felt comforted by this, and yet discomforted at the same time. With a deep breath her hands fell in her lap, falling silent as she waited for someone to speak.

Just saw your post. And definitely! I'd LOVE for you to use both.

Re: [OOC] Mother Goose's Academy for Untrained Tales

I was wondering if I could use Jack and Jill for my fairy tale, and if I could can I make two Characters for Jack and Jill both? Thanks.
