Short Term 12

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby supertoastgirl on Mon Jun 09, 2014 1:30 am

Image

Look into my eyes so you know what it’s like to live a life not knowing what a normal life’s like.
The contents of this role-play are based off of the movie Short Term 12.



The kids lash out; physical fights and verbal turmoil erupt daily. Emotional break downs, panicked fits, and nightmares occur often. The food is decent and the housing is just alright. This is a place of many rules, but no parents. This is a place where misfits, the forgotten, and the torn apart live. This is the short term housing for foster care kids.

Short Term 12 is part of a collection of temporary homes that houses children when they are being transferred from one home to the next. Though the process is supposed to take from two to six weeks, some have lived in Short Term 12 for over three years. It's not a luxury, and it's normal life, but to most it's a home and it's a family. Short Term 12 is the home that longer term kids end up, either for emotional reasons or for behavioral issues.

There are no parents, just a set of young adults who are called "companions". They are there to provide a safe, loving environment but nothing more. They are not to interpret tears, be a therapist, or a parent. They are supposed to be solid providers who create a fun an safe environment, and nothing much more.

But how are these young adults supposed to remain completely unemotionally attached when they do everything for this kids. They feed them, care for them, help them with their homework, play with them, and overall just love them like no else in their life. It's a hard balancing act for the companions, and it's even harder for the kids.

Yes you may. Please just have a complete sheet in 48 hours from your reservation, otherwise she'll go back up for grabs.

Hello! I've seen your name around the boards before. I used to be a lot more active but took a hiatus for a few months due to school and such and am a bit rusty but am looking to join your board. I would be interested in a male companion, as well as a female one if the reservation doesn't fall through? I promise to have a submission within the next 48 hours.

Hiya! Sounds great! Also, I was going to suggest for those making companions to double up with a character of the opposite gender that is a kid. So that sounds all great, I look forward to seeing your character.

Generally it in this case it would mean that both the parents were imprisoned but I think you could do some kind of punishment is living at short term 12..

Hello! May I take up the Companion 1 position?

I will be using Jamie Dornan.

I will also possibly take girl 2 but that is for another time.

Look forward to role-playing with you.

In no way does it say you wanted companion 1. You said that you would be interested in a male companion and that does not mean the 1st one. Also, it was not reserved on the front page.

If so, I feel gyped because I have already thought up a great backstory that would lead to an awesome story for companion 1. Also, supertoastgirl advertised this in a role play we are in together, so I do not know how that would work either.

I'm sorry, you're right. I didn't mean to offend you, it's just that I already turned in my completed profile earlier today for that position and I've been pming stg about the roleplay. But she has every opportunity to turn down my character. I can just completely throw away my character because you seem to be very passionate about it, I wouldn't want you feeling gypped.

The only reason I really want him is because of the record keeping.

SPOILERS AHEAD

I was planning for my character to have no memory of his life before Short Term. Hence, he keeps the records because he doesn't want to lose his memory again.

Now, I don't want you to completely throw you character away, as that would be a waste of good writing. Maybe, you could possibly switch to companion three? (Which is also male.)

Aw, sorry guys, I don't generally put up who's reserved what. That's my bad!

Though I don't want to scrap RPGRosa's character completely, I think that your idea, Cyber, is brilliant. Unfortunately, I read RPGRosa's character earlier today on my phone and just hadn't accepted yet. If you two wish to continue discussing which companion to take, feel free. But for now RGPRosa's character has been accepted as the male companion 1.

Sorry, CyberGlowfly, this was all my fault!
