I'm Inbetween

I'm Inbetween

What happens when you aren't normal enough to be human, but not abnormal enough to be a superhuman?

Introduction

Image
So you're a superhuman. Pretty cool, right? Well, it would be, if you had a cool power. Unfortunately for you, your "gifts" are lacking. In fact, they're almost an embarrassment. Most other superheroes want nothing to do with you. But, as chance would have it, you can't try and fit in with the humans, either. The fact that you aren't as disabled as they are is enough to set you apart as a freak, even if the only special thing you can do is shapeshift into a house plant.

So where do you go?

Image

Welcome to the Academy for Somewhat Super-Humans, affectionately nicknamed the "ASS" by its students. Here, you're supposed to learn how to control your powers, use them for good, yadayadayada. But, let's face it, no one really cares how you use your ability to resemble picture frames or change the channel on the TV every time you sneeze, or for which side you use it. If you want to get down to it, the ASS is simply a placeholder for people like you. A big boarding school without the school. There are rules, but no one follows them, and the adults don't really care, too involved in their own problems to worry about others. School is a bit of a joke (underwater basket weaving is actually a class!) and the only plus is the beds.

Occasionally, however, you will get sent on "missions". These usually involve petty things, issues that a human can't do on their own, but are below a "real" superhero. Enjoy saving some woman's cat and chasing down a missing pacifier. Graduating means you've learned how to fit in the dismal place society wants you to be: whether it's a super-janitor or super-flexible-dance teacher, you'll be able to live your life toeing the fine line between human and super, constantly wishing for more.

Everyone looks down on you. Humans, superheroes, even the villains. No one gives two cents towards you. Overlooked, under appreciated...some might see it as a curse. Others, as a blessing. After all, if no one cares about you, there's no one to stop you either. How will you cope with your power? Will you try to fit in? Will you conform and hide your face? Or will you find some way to shine, proving to everyone that you're so much more than what meets the eye? And, even more importantly, what will you do when the biggest bad ever to threaten the planet is making plans for world domination?

Welcome to ASS.

No Godmodding! Planning is great, but be sure to notify me so I don't freak out and call you out for killing/beating someone up. Punching a character in the face w/out warning is fine. Punching and knocking them out is not. Also, don't mysteriously know someone's past without a good reason. No mind-reading without a reason.

Obviously, the point of this roleplay is that your powers are less than stellar. Unless you have a killer weakness, don't be going around with generic superhero abilities like super strength, flight, etc. Irony is great, and the more creative your ability, the better. They don't have to be useless, but definitely something that would be looked down upon and/or overlooked

This is a high school/college setting. So I'd like characters to be over 15 please

Semi-literate at the least! I'd like a paragraph per post.

Profanity, romance, violence, etc is fine with me, but check with everyone else. If you're not sure, pm dat shit!

I'd like this to stay alive for as long as possible. But if you are going to abandon it, at least let me know.

Please post regularly. I have no life, and therefore check this place everyday. I will know if you don't post.

Make original characters. I will reject them if I think they're too generic

Have fun! This is a bit of a comedy after all. The first half will be silly, fun teenager stuff. But eventually a plot will start kicking into action, so be prepared! Ideas are entirely encouraged!

Re: I'm Inbetween

I submitted my character. Sorry it took me so long, though!! DX

But there he is. c: Let me know if i need to change anything.

EDIT: Hello everyone! It's a pleasure to be in this group with you! I can't wait until we can start! <3 <3

Re: I'm Inbetween

Thanks for accepting! Can't wait for it to take off. :)

Re: I'm Inbetween

Thank you for submitting your character, Heather! She's great, and accepted :)

I'm going to wait for a couple more character before starting.

Re: I'm Inbetween

I loved this idea! Character submitted for it. I hope it takes off, I'd love to be a part of it! :)

Re: I'm Inbetween

I actually thought of that yesterday, but for some reason didn't act on it....

I will get to work on it right away! Thank you for still wanting to do this! I really appreciate it :)

Re: I'm Inbetween

Yes! please do! Cirrus, you should put up a roleplayers wanted thread. Maybe that would help...

Re: I'm Inbetween

of course!

we haven't started yet (not enough people), so by all means, please submit a character :)

Re: I'm Inbetween

If you guys are still accepting and it isn't dead, may i join?

Re: I'm Inbetween

His good luck depends greatly on the situation and how likely that whatever he is willing to happen, would happen without him affecting it.

Re: I'm Inbetween

Ah, okay. yeah, I think that's fine. It comes off as a passive/aggressive power, since it's about luck, so yeah, you can have it :)

jw, how good does his good luck get?

Re: I'm Inbetween

The luck would never be bad enough to kill him, just be dragged out longer. A broken bone or two would be the worst that would happen to him. His luck without changing it is normally pretty bad, as he is constantly repaying back the luck he owes.

Re: I'm Inbetween

Hmmm....I think that's all right. It could definitely be looked down upon, because others would just say your character got lucky, rather than rely on any particular skill. How good is the luck of the character normally, without him/her changing it? Also, how bad would the bad luck be?

and that's all right. just get your character in whenever you can.

Re: I'm Inbetween

For my power I was thinking of doing something like a luck power. At will my character will be able to get a streak of good luck, but that will be made up for later by bad luck. This bad luck would last for longer depending on how lucky I was beforehand. If for instance I willed a incredable piece of luck, which would never happen normally, I would be given weeks of bad luck afterwards. But if I used my power to score a hoop in basketball I would maybe only get a stubbed toe or two afterwards. The bad luck would often out balance the original good luck. Is that a alright power? Or too overpowered? I can't actually post my charactoer till tomorrow :(

Re: I'm Inbetween

It might also help if you put up a couple pics, both for the icon and in the introduction. Just a suggestion though.

Re: I'm Inbetween

okey dokey! thank you for your suggestions! I was gonna wait to make a character, but I will post one up soon :)

Re: I'm Inbetween

Search "daily superpower." That site has a few good ones :3

Re: I'm Inbetween

Cirrus if you make a character in the next day or two, I will make a character too. Maybe then this rp will get some attention =)

Re: I'm Inbetween

lol, those are all hilarious! Thanks for sharing, I had a good laugh XD

I love that they are all creative. Although I love superhero rps, often times people choose generic, over-used powers/abilities for their characters (ex: strength, flight, ability to shift into a wolf, x-ray vision, mind reading, etc) which are great, but sometimes get boring. I created this roleplay so people could get creative and have characters that aren't super-stellar. Not to mention, winning a battle with any of the abilities you mentioned would be an awesome fight indeed.

Re: I'm Inbetween

Haha I don't know if I will join, but I did have enough fun finding funny powers. Here are a few.

Control over his own shadow
Can create a snowball out of nowhere, even in the Sahara desert.
Can flawlessly repeat anything said to him, including exact voice print replication... but can't generate new things. Repetition only.
The ability to instill in a person within line of sight the intense need to urinate.
Never late for anything powers, no matter how much time you take you'll always be right on time or early.
Can levitate, but only while holding onto something fastened to the ground.
"unnoticeable woman" who wasn't invisible- just nobody ever paid attention to her.
Increduibly accurate throw with any cutlery that isn't a knife.
Has heroic hair. No other powers, but everyone agrees his hair looks heroic.
to be able to determine anyone's weakness just by being defeated by them
The ability to fly, so long as they have thier eyes closed.
Can duplicate the power of anyone, only at 1/10th the strength or skill of the person you're duplicating the power from. Strong guy lifts one ton? You can lift 200 pounds. Totally invulnerable to firearms? One shot in 10 doesn't hit you.
"Summon Mariachi Band."

Re: I'm Inbetween

This looks cool :3

I just need to think of my super power....
