Welcome to the town of Mountain Brook. It's a reasonably small town- well, in terms of population. The wealth of it's inhabitants means that Mountain Brook is filled with large houses with even bigger gardens. Appearance is one of the most important things in Mountain Brook. No woman would dare leave the house without makeup and pristine clothes- no man would dare be seen driving a second hand car. The thought of being humiliated in front of the neighbours haunts many a citizen, and many late nights are had, trying to ensure that their brownies are better than Susan from the PTA's, or that their home is more pristine than John from the office's home.

This competition to be the best isn't just exclusive to the adults. The teenagers of the town are constantly striving to be the best at whatever they're good at. But this desire for success combined with the constant search for identity can be overwhelming for many teenagers, and so, the parties of Mountain Brook often get a little out of hand as they try to forget for a few hours what's expected of them.

However, one night, things go drastically wrong. The next morning, as the host is kicking out the last few stragglers, a boy is found dead. It doesn't take the police long to figure out that it was murder, and suddenly, almost the entire young adult population of Mountain Brook is under suspicion. Interviews are conducted, evidence is hunted for, and accusations are made.

As the town searches for answers, the teenage population tries to keep their secrets as much as possible. They think it's just a matter of being a little more careful. But when everybody finds a sheet in their lockers, detailing one girl's affair, they suddenly realise that it might not be so easy.

Because somebody knows their secrets. And that somebody is going to talk. However, they have promised that they will not spill any secrets- if the teenagers agree to play their little game and do exactly as they are told. The pride, the appearances and the secrets of Mountain Brook are now at risk.

No godmodding. All characters are human.
Keep the drama to the IC. If you have a problem with another member, try and sort it out over PM, and if that isn't working, I will act as a mediator.
Make your secrets realistic. It doesn't have to be massive, like "I killed my brother"- but it has to be big enough to have an impact on their life when it's revealed.
If anybody just magically finds out another character's secret or figures it out without too much work, it spoils all the fun. Don't do that.
As opposed to when I have ran this roleplay before, the killer will not be one of our characters and will be an NPC. If, however, you wish to have some relation to the killer, i.e, knowing who it is or something similar, please let me know.
If you want to leave, let me know, and your character will be killed off or otherwise removed.
In terms of secret and face claim changes- I'm relatively open to both, as long as the FC isn't overused or way too old/young for the RP and is appropriate. Just ask when reserving your character.
If you don't post for two weeks and don't give me some kind of reason, I'll assume you have left and will proceed as such.
Commitment would be nice.
Reservations to be posted in the OOC.
This is an LBGT+/MOGAI/whatever acronym you use friendly roleplay. Any intolerance will not be accepted OOC and sensitivity should be used IC.
Relationships? Yes please. More drama! But keep it clean here, and normal RPG rules apply.
Violence is expected, but just don't get too graphic.#
To show you read the rules, put your favourite colour in your reservation post.
Enjoy!

Re: The Edge of Tonight

@mortalcreator- they're perfect! Go ahead and make your character. :)

Re: The Edge of Tonight

@iCat Thanks! :) If you don't mind, I'd like for it to be Kawaguchi Haruna:

Re: The Edge of Tonight

@mortalcreator- Yeah, sure! That's fine by me. And I'm totally open to you changing her FC if you think it would suit the character better, just tell me who it is and I'll make sure they're appropriate. :)

Re: The Edge of Tonight

Could I please reserve Jenna!!! My favorite colors are dark reds.

I have a quick question about her secret, though. Could I expand the scope of that to include gender issues, too? And how open are you to having me change her fc?

Re: The Edge of Tonight

Awesome! Your reservation has been edited in. :)

Re: The Edge of Tonight

Hello! I'd like to reserve Kaya Scodelario. My favorite color....well I don't really have one. I can tell you I hate the color pink. I guess I'm more fond of earthy colors like green and brown overall.
