In the small town of Virginia City, Montana everyone knew everyone. With only a population totaling to 250, your parents knew the owner of the hardware store and the mayor has been best friends with your father since the first grade. It was a tight knit community that helped one another whenever it was called upon. The city thrived on local businesses and exporting goods. There was but one one elementary school, one middle school, and one high school. The graduating class of 2008 had only about 50 students. So you can imagine there isn't much of a choice when it came to dating.
Some of those who had just graduated had decided to call it quites, wanting to explore the world beyond their city limits. Some decided to serve their country, some went on to college, while others simply traveled. Relationships had ended and friendships strayed. Those who had left were seemingly happy with their lives outside of Virginia City, but there was always that sense of homesickness within them despite their newfound joys.
After being away for six years, many of those who left from the graduated class, started to return back for various reasons. Whether those reasons were family related, not having anywhere else to go, or simply missing home, they all came back. Much to there dismay, it seemed like everything in the town itself had stayed the same. The same family still owned the bakery down on Birch Street, Mayor Tom Goreingher was still in office, and old man Jeremy was still the grumpy old man they had all come to adore.
Yet the one thing that wasn't the same were the relationships that were long ago established. Old memories of going to the lake with friends are exactly that, old memories. Going to the local drive in theater for a double date, was a thing of the past. But will reuniting back with old friends, enemies, crushes, and exes bring up the past and continue off where they left off, or has everything changed?

Toggle Rules

1. Please be kind and respectful to one another and include everyone in the RP. This is after all a RP about old friends and high school classmates coming back together, so they all know one another and have some sort of relationship established no matter how minimally.

2. No bunnying to God-modding, and no meta-gaming. Fairly simply. Your character is not invincible, doesn't know all the secrets to the RP and world, and doesn't control other characters. They are only humans after all and don't have any special powers.

3. Try to keep sexualities fairly equal. I don't care for you preference of sexuality in your character, you may choose whatever! But if one character has been labeled specially as liking another character of a different gender then they are obviously not homosexual.

4. Use proper grammar and spelling. Please, I beg of you. A few mistakes will not warrant my anger, so you don't have to worry about it that much.

5. I spent a lot of time trying to think of the Face Claims to these characters but Face claims may be changed, but run it by me first. And try not to get any who look too much like teenagers or too old, they are after young adults.

6. Just so I know you've read through this, I know it's no fun, but somewhere in your reservation include your celebrity crush. I've always found it interesting who other people fancied from the celebrity world.

7. Please keep your characters consistent with their personalities. If your character is an asshole or bitch, I want to see that! It makes the RP more dramatic and exciting, not to mention overall consistent.

8. I know we all have lives outside of the RP world but at least try to be on here to keep the RP alive and going. Plus no one likes having to wait for days on end for a reply to one of their posts. So don't leave anyone hanging and post whenever possible! If you don't think you'll be on very much, don't reserve a character please.

9. This is a huge one. No one liners or short posts. I like to see multi worded posts with dialogue. Three or four paragraphs should suffice, about 300 words or more. I know finding what to say can be difficult but add as much as you can including imagery, flash backs, characters thoughts and feelings. Just elaborate and have fun!

10. When I've accepted your character sheet, give me two character traits to add to the introduction for all to get a quick glance at.

11. I'm a friendly, easy going person, so if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas please do not be afraid to shoot me a PM. I'll get back to you as soon as possible!

12. You may fashion your character sheet however you like, in fact I encourage it, but please include all the information I am seeking and include gifs and pictures. Remember the more playful and interesting your character sheet is, the more likely I'll be wanting to accept your character sheet.

Re: Going Home

Hey!
Love your work! And my trip was excellent, thank you for asking.

Re: Going Home

Hi Unjustifiable,
Both characters all done, sorry for the delay!

How was Punta Cana?

Re: Going Home

Unfortunately most of you have not completed your character sheets for whatever reasons. I still have my hopes that some of you will complete them still though, for a desperately want to see this RP come alive, after my meticulous hours of making it. If any of you have questions or concerns, PM me. Can't wait to hear from all of you!

Re: Going Home

Alright everyone. So this upcoming Sunday I will be going on vacation to Punta Cana and will most likely not be on due to wifi and what not. I will return the following Sunday (7/13/14). Therefore I would like to see all the character sheets done by then. I believe there has been plenty of time to have them done by then. That said, we will start Monday, 7/14/14. So I hope to see your completed character sheets and get to start this RP with all you lovely people soon!

Re: Going Home

I'll go for it, he'll be up and running by tomorrow

Re: Going Home

Well someone has graciously offered to take the character FC Ashley Greene so that would leave character FC Stephen Amell. You don't have to take another character if you don't want. It's all up to you though, if you want him, go for it! You're more than welcome to him. If not I don't mind taking him.

Re: Going Home

I can take another one, which role shall I take?

Re: Going Home

Alright Secute, sorry to hear! And thank you!

As for everyone else, I'm looking forward to seeing your CS and we have two characters still available so if you know anyone looking for a RP like this let them know! If not I can take up an extra role, or I can take out those two characters. We'll see how this plays out, so please be patient and I will let you guys know of any changes!

Re: Going Home

So in light of my recent RP situation, I'm sorry Just but you can let my reservation go. Let me know if no one picks up, then I will try and work something out. But for now I can't handle this RP. Good luck though!

Re: Going Home

Sounds good guys, can't wait to see them!

Re: Going Home

Just! I'm just letting you know that my character will be up tomorrow ^^

Re: Going Home

@Just: I'll have my characters up Monday at the latest. :)

Re: Going Home

I would have liked Henry Cavill, but I see Addrinvan beat me to it. So now, I will go for Stephen Amell.

Celebrity crush would be a difficult choice between Anna Kendrick and Phoebe Tonkin.

Re: Going Home

Can I reserve Max Brown?
my celebrity crush is actually Kim Soo hyun :D

Re: Going Home

I'd like to reserve Henry Cavill please.

Kurt Cobain for my celebrity crush.
