Black Out

Black Out

0 INK

In the near future, everything is controlled by electricity… What happens when you’re at school and there is a massive blackout, turning the lights off and stopping the electricity that powers the world?

818 readers have visited Black Out since Grrbot created it.

Introduction

LoveMeMaybe is Co Leader.

In the near future, everything is controlled by electricity… What happens when you’re at school and there is a massive blackout, turning the lights off and stopping the electricity that powers the world? The doors lock, computers don’t work and everything you have ever relied on does no longer work. You must work together to live.

There are no adults around as the teachers were all robots… That relied on electricity. Cars no longer work so you must walk or if your lucky, get your hands on what they call a “bicycle” or “skateboard” but those are rare. No one has seen them in a while.

The school is pitch black so you must find candles to provide light and anything else that doesn’t need electricity. As there is currently no escape as the doors are rock hard and not able to open and the windows are locked and barred, you must find some living quarters.

Infirmary

There are enough rooms for everyone to live alone but if you wish, you may room with somebody else. There are vacant rooms that have no use so far but they may become of use later on.

In order to live, you must join up and help each other. The school has set up into 4 factions. Food Supply Team, Security Team, Medical Team and the Entertainment Team. You must choose to join a team. The Food Supply team cooks the dinner every night and checks the supplies. The Security team makes sure everyone is safe and deals with fights and problems. The Medical Team basically fixes everybody up and the Entertainment Team plans a weekly fun night on Saturdays.

I may choose to give out rewards later on in the rp.
Reserves last 24 hours.

Elise Fleane
“Why doesn’t everyone go round up the other classes? I’ll take her to the auditorium.” Allen gestured to the girl hanging onto him. Quickly I spoke. “I’ll go get the rest of our class! I forgot my pil- um, purse in there anyway.” It was stupid to keep on trying to hide my anxiety disorder to keep my popularity up but when this blackout was over I was sure we’d all go back to our usual lives. Besides it was my own personal issue. “I can take the hallway that our classroom is in and someone definitely needs to take the elementary and middle school division.” I continued and the said a good bye. “I’ll meet you guys in the auditorium.” I pressed the on button on my tablet and a small light washed over my face. I started off down the long hallway. I wasn’t exactly sure what part of the school I was in, but I had some idea; at least enough to find the classroom from before.

I opened the door and peered in. Kids had their phone, laptops, and tablets out for light. Everyone who was whispering excitedly and nervously looked up. I cleared my throat. “Hey, everyone. There’s a meeting going on in the auditorium. Yeah, everyone’s meeting there.” A few kid’s stood up abruptly then sat down again when no one else got up. I looked around helplessly before straightening up and speaking again, “Look, I don’t particularly care if you go or not. You can just stay here while we raid the cafeteria and eat to our hearts content.” Some people laughed and got up walking towards the door. They filed out slowly as if moving through Jell-O. I crossed the room, grabbed my purse, and dug through it. Taking out a few pills I sat and watched as more and more people moved towards the door. I smiled in satisfaction, swallowed my medication with the water bottle on my desk, and got up to leave and persuade other classrooms to exit the safety of the rooms.

Cara

I smiled as the young boy, danny, pressed himself into my side. I patted his head and kept whispering to him that everything would be okay. "I was on my way back to class when the lights came off... I didn't see anybody else..." the girl said. I heard a voice, distant, calling out to see if anyone was here. I watched as Nicole basically insulted the new girl. "Stop Nicole.. Your being rude." I hushed her and I saw Elise's flushed face. "I'm sorry she made you feel this way." I whispered to the girl. I felt obligated to apologize. “We should round up everyone and get them to a room with a large cappacity. The cafetiria sounds good. Or the autotorium. If we’re gonna stay the night we need supplies and food. And if the gym has some showers we can use those too.” the girl said. I nodded in agreement. "I agree with Elise..." I said. “We’re over here.” Elise said to the voice in the hall.. It was probably meant to be a shout but it was soft... I looked at the boy glaring, wasn't he Elise's brother. I wanted to say something but I just stood there silently.

I watched as a boy and a girl hobbled over to us slowly. As they got closer I noticed the young girl was injured. "She's hurt her foot," the boy said. "Is there some sort of plan?" he asked. I nodded. “Someone will have to care for her and if the injury is serious she should be taken to the hos- infirmary. I’m sure there are some bandages there.” Elise said. “So far I think we’ve agreed to round all the students up. And I guess we have to stay overnight so we’ll need food and rooms. And the showers, if there are any, should still work, even without electricity.” Elise continued to explain... She was calm and sounded sure, a much better leader than Cara. "Then what are we waiting for?" the boy asked, clearly annoyed. I frowned. He needed to chill out. "Why don't we go to the auditorium or gym? They're probably big enough. Someone can go tell the classrooms and I can take a look at her foot," the boy said. "That sounds good." I commented. “It’ll be perfectly fine. I’d say the auditorium is good. Or the gym, whichever’s bigger. I can help round up the students.” Elise said. I watched as Elise introduced herself. "I'm Cara..." I said. She introduced her step brother then as Cal. "The auditorium's bigger, so that would be the best," the boy with the rude attitude said. He continued and said his name. Allen. "Why doesn't everyone go round up the other classes? I'll take her to the auditorium." Allen said. "That sounds good... We'll meet up later." I said.

“I’ll go get the rest of our class! I forgot my pil- um, purse in there anyway.” Elise said, slipping... I looked at her but didn't question anything. “I can take the hallway that our classroom is in and someone definitely needs to take the elementary and middle school division.” Elise continued. "I heard people wandering the halls so I'll go find them alone.." I said, looking down the hall. “I’ll meet you guys in the auditorium.” Elise continued and I watched her go. "Hey what are you guys gonna do?" I asked the rest of the group.

Samantha
The boy was nice to me... I was sure he'd much rather find help and get out rather than helping me around so I valued his care a lot. We hobbled through the hall, me clutching him as a human crutch. We slowly walked towards a group of voices, cellphone lights helping guide us to them. It took a minute or two though for us to get to them. "She's hurt her foot," I watched the boy tell one of the girls more than the rest of the group.. "Is there some sort of plan?" he asked and I looked at everybody expectantly. “Someone will have to care for her and if the injury is serious she should be taken to the hos- infirmary. I’m sure there are some bandages there.” The girl replied. “So far I think we’ve agreed to round all the students up. And I guess we have to stay overnight so we’ll need food and rooms. And the showers, if there are any, should still work, even without electricity.” the girl said... She sounded sure. "That sounds good." I winced, feeling the pain and nodded. "Then what are we waiting for?" the boy said. "Relax." I whispered. "We just got here and were still figuring things out." I sighed.

"Why don't we go to the auditorium or gym? They're probably big enough. Someone can go tell the classrooms and I can take a look at her foot," he said. "That sounds okay." I smiled through the pain. “It’ll be perfectly fine. I’d say the auditorium is good. Or the gym, whichever’s bigger. I can help round up the students.” the girl said. "That sounds good." I said. “We could all meet up after we do our jobs. I’m Elise Fleane. I suppose we should learn each other’s name.” the girl introduced herself. "I'm Samantha." I whispered. I saw her explain who her step brother was. Cal... "The auditorium's bigger, so that would be the best," my helper suggested. "I'm Allen Carraway," he continued. Allen... That was a nice name. He explained that Allen and I would go to the auditorium. "Why don't we go to the infirmary?" I asked him.

He blinked at the girl he was holding up- no, her name was Samantha, not "the girl" anymore. Of course he was being a bit blunt, or rude, however you wanted to see it, and he really shouldn't inflict that on these people considering half of them were scared out of their wits. At least, he realized ruefully, he acted the same under pressure as he did in normal situations. Which, really, was mixed news since that particular personality trait wasn't actually sought out as a good thing.

Still, he wouldn't apologize. The sooner they got everything in order, the sooner people would start being rational again, and the sooner they could come up with a plan to get the- pardon his biblical reference- Hell out of here. He was about to continue on when the go- no, no, Samantha- asked, "Why don't we go to the infirmary?"

Allen hadn't thought about that before, too engrossed with the situation to even fathom going to the nurse's office. He paused, thinking it over. On the upside, the infirmary did have medical supplies. However, it was also manned by a robotic nurse who kept everything locked and sealed away from the students unless needed. It would take time to break open the storage and more muscle than the lanky teen or hurt girl could manage.

"Everything's locked up there and it'll take time and effort to get what we need," He summarized after his moment of thought. "Besides, I only really need to look at it right now. When we get to the auditorium, I won't have to move you anymore so we can just sit down and take a look, all right?" He really hoped she wouldn't argue, really he did. That would just be more taxing for all of them.

Re: Black Out

Awesome! And absolutely no problem. =D

Re: Black Out

I wouldn't mind at all :D! Thanks.

Re: Black Out

If he wouldn't mind sharing with someone like Allen, then sure, our characters can be roommates. =D

Re: Black Out

I need a roommate, would any of you like to room with my male character?

Re: Black Out

That sounds good to me. I'm ready to start, at least.

Re: Black Out

Alright so Bandgeek pulled out so I decided to pull the 4th out for both genders so were just waiting on unbright to see if she still wants her preteen. If she doesn't I can make the preteen... But anyways I think we'll start today maybe! :D

Re: Black Out

Hey guys I think we might start in the next day or 2... I'm still waiting on a couple reservations and I have some open spots so if anyone wants to make a second character, they can.

Re: Black Out

May I get room 105 for Elise and 139 for Calliber? And I guess a medical position for Elise too. I'm not sure what Cal should take up though.Thanks! :3

Re: Black Out

Well, would any of you mind if you shared a room with my character? He's in the entertainment branch. Yorokobi, maybe our characters could share a room?

Re: Black Out

All updates have been made and accepted. So for those of you who haven't, can you please comment a room number that you'd like to stay in and an occupation. Much appreciated! -Em

Re: Black Out

Well I've already completed the boy's profile so I suppose I'll just submit him and you can accept him or decline him, whichever one.

Re: Black Out

My character "Richard Plaine" wants to work in the security team (seeing as he's been doing martial arts~) and wants to live in Room 137 [Willing to share the room with someone]

Is this okay or do I need to change something?

Re: Black Out

May I reserve the preteen boy 2 please? Thanks!
Once again vanilla fudge swirl!

Re: Black Out

I want to reserved for Preteen/Child for Girls. :D

Re: Black Out

@Grrbot: K thanks!

Re: Black Out

@ibble yeah I think thats okay since no one is signing up for the guys so go ahead... Also if nobody else signs up by tomorrow people can people a second character as long as they run it by me.

Re: Black Out

Hey, it's Ibbledibble again. I'm about to post my character's profile! But I want my avatar to have a brother so may I reserve a preteen boy? If not is there anyone out there who'd like to participate in the act of being a older or younger brother. Again if no ones willing then I'll just make a few edits to my profile! Thanks! :3

Re: Black Out

@jako well no one has joined so I will allow you to take your time unless more people come and reserve...

Re: Black Out

Oh, I might not be able to get it out until much later today though (I'm going out for a couple hours). Hopefully I will make it within 24 hours, but I'm not sure :(.

Re: Black Out

@usernames yeah that sounds good!
