The Normal

The Normal

A life where everyone is the same, or they will be soon enough.

Introduction

Do you remember a time when it was good to stand out, to be unique? Well I sure don't. If you do you must have time traveled or something, which isn't even possible, because it is actually scoffed, laughed, and frowned upon greatly here in the United States. You grow up being taught how to act, how to eat, and how to dress. You have been told how much you should weigh, how good of eyesight you have, and how smart you should be.

Ever since you've been old enough to even begin to comprehend these things you have been tested once every month. You are weighed, examined, and questioned. Your so called "House", which only your bedroom and a bathroom, is searched for any abnormal things. When they are done they tell you how you did, and if you don't pass every single little detail of the test, you fail, and are still "Different". You don't get your number tattoo taken off, you aren't fully accepted, and you most certainly don't get the clothes of the normals.

Why are your houses called houses you may be asking? Because a house is the area you live in. You don't have anything more and every room is connected to each others. The kids have a section with each other, the teens have a section, and the adults have a section. All elders go somewhere else, but nobody knows where. There are door connected to the houses next to yours, they are locked but have peepholes.

Everybody wants to be normal, everybody struggles to be normal, because that's what they've learned to do. It's a good thing right? Right. Don't say otherwise in front of the counslers. The counslers are hired to help you be normal. Everyone who oes to them passes their next test easy. Everyone who is normal is, different. But only to those who try and notice. They always have this, blank stare in their eyes, and they don't laugh. But that's fine right? What we don't notice won't hurt us.

At least that was what I thought. That was, until the new guy came in next door. I don't know his name, but I think he knows mine. He's different to say the least. He doesn't seem to care about being normal, and when I look through the peephole to try and figure out what he's doing, he has it covered. He wears the clothes he likes to wear outside of his room and does whatever he pleases. Why would he do that? Doesn't he want to be normal like everyone else?

Somethings you need to know:
California- It is the only place that is supposedly still free from the normal thing. The people who are everywhere else in the U.S.A don't believe it is and the few who do don't care because they love it being normal.

"Normalness"- It may seem like it is good to be normal to everyone, but really, if you pass the test, they do a sort of brain surgery that makes everyone think the same, and love the life they have. They are sort of like robots after the surgery but nobody notices because that's what they think is good.

Counslers- They are pretty much your death toll. If they don't starve you to death they will slap you, yell at you, and any other thing you can think of in order to break you and make you like everyone else. Nobody knows about this because the people who go to them dare not say anything. If you for some reason like being abnormal then you are automatically assigned to a counsler. But that only happens after at least a year of being happy.

Specific Spots:
The Narrorator Girl- Taken-gezzygezzy-Is pretty much like everyone else. She wants to be normal, she tries her best, but it seems like she just can't. The boy is her next door neighbor.

The boy- OPEN- He is new to the town the girl is in. He knows something is up with the normals and doesn't like it. He has strange feelings about the girl that are love, but he won't admit that to himself. He has grown fond of her even though they have never met and would never leave without her already, although he already hates it there.

The Best friend- OPENShe is the girls #1 best friend but sort of likes the guy. He isn't interested in her and never will be because he likes the girl. But she doesn't know that and if it did it would make her hate the girl. She is so close to being part of the normals she can almost feel it.

1. You do not know about the strangness yet. Right now you are like everybody except for the boy, wanting to be normal.

Most recent OOC posts in The Normal

Re: [OOC] The Normal

I think I would like people to try and post at least two or three times a week. I understand if you can't get on for a while but if you don't post for two weeks then I start to get a little frustrated, unless I'm warned in advance. If nobody wants to be the boy by the time this thing starts I can be him too, so it's fine that you don't wanna be him.

Re: [OOC] The Normal

It makes perfect sense.

I don't want to play the boy.

When does this start and what are the post requirements per week?

I need to write up a character concept as soon as I am done with homework . . .

Re: [OOC] The Normal

Yeah, I just had this idea and the boys feelings are supposed to be a little skeptical because I want the idea to be there but whoever plays him can make up everything else. I try to make them vague so the people can fill in their personalitys. If that makes sense...(probably doesn't)

Re: [OOC] The Normal

I am particularly fond of negative utopias/dystopias. I must partake in this RP . . . I will create a character ASAP. The concept is very interesting . . . I am a little skeptical of this boy's attraction to the girl. There was no explanation for it. But we'll see how that resolves itself.
