It's the disease of the age, it's the disease that we crave,
alone at the end of the rain, we catch the last bus home.
Corporate America wakes, coffee republic in case,
we open the latch on the gates, of the hole that we call our home.

Protect me from what I want, protect me from what I want,
protect me from what I want, protect me, protect me.

Maybe we're victims of fate, remember when we'd celebrate?
we'd drink and get high until late, but now we're all alone.
Wedding bells ain't gonna chime; we're both of us guilty of crime,
and both of us sentenced to time, and now we're all alone.

Protect me from what I want, protect me from what I want,
protect me from what I want, protect me, protect me.


The year is 2050. Schools have finally caught up with the times. No longer are they teaching redundant facts and formulas on a blackboard that students won't remember more than a week anyway. They've moved on to more important things. Students are being taught about technology. History class has become about the history, culture, and current events of other places besides just the United States. Classes are being taught in different languages. Projects involve having to apply skills from the real world. School is no longer just about tests, it's about learning how to work in a community and get things accomplished through abstract thinking, innovative ideas, and teamwork.

Of course, with every advancement humanity makes, the evolutionary chain is one step ahead of all of us. With these new steps in learning comes new ways of thinking. Suddenly, more and more cases of what we call "genius" came up. What usually happened once every hundred years or so suddenly started happening every year. Younger and younger, brilliant minds appeared.

It was only a matter of time before the school opened. "Blackwing University," they called it, a place for gifted teenagers and young adults to study and learn and expand their horizons among others that thought at their same level. Whether you were a scientific, mathematical, linguistic, or even an artistic genius, it's said that you could find a place there. There are also rumors that this school houses those with another kind of gift, the kind where the mind can do more than just think. The kind where the very internal thoughts of a person can influence their external environment. These kinds of people are still a bit of a mystery to the world. Some think they're unnatural, and some think it's just a course they should let run itself out. Whatever the case, both the sharp of mind and gifted of thought are welcome into the university's doors.

So there you are, for one reason or another. Some of you have been there longer than others. The inside looks just like a normal school--lockers, classrooms, heavy backpacks, term papers, that annoying blue-and-grey tile floor in all the hallways, the dorms where you're forced to take up the roll of "roomie" with whomever's stuck with you... On the outside, it looks a lot like a castle out of a fantasy movie. Old stone, gargoyles on the walls, vines growing everywhere... The only thing that reminds you that you aren't in 7th century BC is the fact that the lawn and gardens are so well kept.

Although, something strange has been brewing lately. Trust me when I say that having a school full of geniuses is pretty weird, but some things have been getting... Weirder. People keep having strange dreams. Stranger dreams that usual. Some of them are scary. Really scary. And there have been more rumors lately that there are things in the school that aren't supposed to be. We're talking more than just your old Bloody Mary ghost stories. Some people have said they've seen shadows in odd places that disappear when you look again, or they say they feel like they're being watched. Maybe it's all just a big hoax. Or maybe it's all paranoia. Whatever it is, people are getting nervous.

What awaits us, here at Blackwing University?


• OVERVIEW •
[ so is this an X-Men rip off, or what? ]

First off, I would like to say that I just got all four of my wisdom teeth removed yesterday. So if something doesn't make any sense here, it's the pain medication talking, not me.

So, when most people think of a "school for the gifted" RP, they think of a school for people with special powers, like the in the classic X-Men example. This is not one of those schools. This is a school for geniuses. You know, future Einsteins, Picassos, that sort of thing. But since I know everyone likes powers, I've made it in the future where some super-natural type abilities are possible if you really, really want. More info on that is in the template.

This school is like a normal school. You can't carry weapons around, because if you came to school with a sword or an AK-47, you'd be expelled faster than The Flash on speed. The closest thing you'd get to a weapon would be a pocket knife, a small taser, pepper-spray, or anything you find that you can pick up and whack someone with.

The setting isn't too far into the future. Some things like books may now be digitalized, and laptops may have gotten more advanced, and some of you geniuses might be able to create a nuclear reactor out of buckles, chewing gum, and human hair (yay, McGuiver!) but the technology is still pretty close to home.

You may leave campus on occasion if you wish, but be back before the gates close. The school provides you with some allowance, in case you want to go out and buy stuff. :3

I'm aiming for this game to being a little darker than usual. If you like gritty details and scenes of horror and things that mess with your mind, this is the place for you. I don't really want this to be a fighting RP--this is more of a mystery. There can be fights, but let's face it: You're a bunch of normalish-smarty-pants, maybe with a bit of psychic power to back you up, against a mysterious force that even I haven't figured out entirely yet. Just... You know. Don't make it rated R. Blood is okay, but don't go too overboard. Same with romance, if this RP gets that far.

Other than that... Have fun with it. The plot will be driven by the players, just like in my other RPs. If you want to push the story in a certain direction, start adding in little bits here and there. Plot points, maybe an NPC, that sort of thing. Build on what each other brings to the table and soon we'll have a metaphorical RP feast. Woot woot. :D



RULES
[ jeez grandpa, why're you reading me this stuff? ]

[01] No Godmodding or acting like a god. The only one who is allowed to mod is myself (who will not do so unless someone seriously screws something up, and that's only happened once, and it was all okay in the end) or an actual mod of the forum. And let’s hope that doesn't have to happen, yes? D: About acting like a god, know that your characters are not perfect, are not all powerful, and not walking dues-ex-machinas. Please and thank you.
[02] Try to make your characters original, or at least original-ish. You can re-use old characters if you really like the concept, just make sure they fit in with the game. You can also borrow ideas from other series and genres and such (because we all do, all the time), but I don't want to see any Sasuke or Witch Hunter Robin clones walking around, eh?
[03] Play realistically. As I've said before, if you get thrown through a brick wall, it will hurt, and you will not get up five minutes later unless you were protected by special circumstances such as a power-shield. But in this game, even with a shield up, it would still hurt your head, at least. It takes a lot of strain to keep a shield up. Also, if you get stabbed, you better patch that thing up fast or you might collapse due to blood loss. What I'm saying is, these characters are human, and will thus take damage and feel emotions and have reactions like real humans. While there are some cases where the rules can be bent, keep a sense of reality in mind--please and thank you.
[04] Just because a character is being a jerkwad (because, lets face it, some characters are nasty and deserve to die horrible, karmatic enforced deaths), doesn't mean that the player is also bad. They're just playing a character. Please remember to keep OOC and IC separate, and if you're having problems with a character or a player, discuss it with them or me over PM instead of clogging up the thread with your OOC angst. This isn't usually a problem on these forums, but just in case...
[05] Two paragraphs a post, at least. Please. It's not that hard. Just type a short paragraph about what they do, and then what they're thinking. Or maybe what they're smelling. Or what the room looks like. Or whatever the hell you'd like. I'd just like some substance to your posts, and I'm pretty sure this is a standard forum rule anyway. :D
[06] Literacy is a must. If I don't think your typing skillz are up to par, I won't include you on the player list, and that's the end of that. Sorry, but I want to be able to read this without getting a headache. Most of you are pretty good with literacy--I know, I've seen you and played with a lot of you. Don't worry if your writing isn't professional (I know mine is far from) just try for literacy and you should do just fine.
[07] Put "tango with a mango" somewhere near the top of your template to show that you've actually been hardcore enough to read through all this stuff! Keep reading though, there's a bit more important goodness yet.
[08] It's been scientifically proven that people like to have their characters talked about. Well, okay. Not scientifically. But don't you get a little inner squee whenever another person's character pays attention to yours? Do the same to the other people's characters every once in a while. Give a thought on what your character thinks about so-and-so here and there. It helps build character relationships, rivalries, and story depth. And hey, other people will be obliged to do the same to you. This way everybody gets some love!
[09] Normal forum rules apply, blah blah blah. I don't have to repeat them, I'm certain. Be kind to your neighbors, respect all life, and don't run with your spears.
[10] Um... I dunno. I just wanted the list to go to ten. :D



† TEMPLATE †
[ the stuff in italics is just me explaining; feel free to delete it ]

Name:
There's something wrong if I have to explain this one. :|
Gender: Male, female, hermaphrodite, whatever floats your boat.
Age: 16-22. Students under 18 are assumed to be students that skipped grades and/or graduated highschool early. Grades are not separated anyway... You're like one giant hunk of students that are separated by what classes they take.
Appearance: Please, no giant pictures that stretches out the page. If you have to go into MS Paint to shrink it, please do. Or you could just give us a written description, which is equally loved. Or both.
Items: Besides your book bag, what does your character carry with them? A laptop? Music? Cool anime gear? Pocket-knife? Remember, some things can and will get taken away if you're caught with them in class, so be careful. Also, make sure they're all things that a person your character's age could get a hold of. No laser-blasters, thank you.
Strengths: You got accepted into this school for a reason. What are you so good at that you got accepted into a university of geniuses? Musical brilliance at age twelve? Damn good test scores? And what other strengths might your character have, mentally, socially, and/or physically?
Weaknesses: As they say, genius comes hand in hand with insanity. There's got to be something wrong with your character. Are they secretly insecure about everything they do? Do they trip and fall over their own feet half the time? Are they always late? Are the autistic? Do they have problems expressing their ideas to people in words? Are they colorblind? Are they total wimps when it comes to rodents and things with eight legs? While I don't want such extremes like a murderous split-personality (only because it's been done too many times, let me tell you), you're welcome to otherwise go crazy with the little kinks in the character's chain of living. Remember to play on them occasionally--it's half the fun!
Abilities: If you want your character to be an average Joe when it comes to abilities other than smarts, skip this one. If you want to have some ability like being a super-good gymnast (with the ability to flip over things or bend and twist like no one's business) or a karate master of sorts, that should be mentioned here. Nothing too insane, though. Keep it within human capabilities. As for "powers," they should also be kept within reason, despite the fact that they don't really happen in real life. The kind of things I'm willing to let happen are pyrokinesis, telekinesis, slight mind-reading, being able to pull information off 2-D objects, annoying psychic visions of the future, that sort of thing. But note, that these powers are not very strong and hard to control. If you've got pyrokinesis, you're not gonna be able to shoot fireballs out of her hands any time soon. You'll be lucky to aim it well enough with enough energy to get a candle going. Mind-reading sucks because you have to dig through people's heads for information, running into a bunch of stuff you didn't want to know anyway. If you have the ability to put up a psychic shield, it's very, very energy consuming. It's hard to stop objects with your brain, you know? So choose wisely, and know that you only get one power. Feel free to get a bit creative, but remember the limits you'll be playing under. Also, only one power per character. Mmmmkay?
Personality: What're they like? What are they like around girls? Around teachers? Around boys? When they're alone? How do they seem to other people vs. what's going on in their heads? How are they likely to speak? What kinds of things could cause their personality to go a bit out of whack? How would they react if a car almost hit them in the street? If there was a sale in the middle of their favorite store? Anything and everything you'd like to include about your character's personality helps add to their three-dimensionality.
Bio: Since these characters are going to be relatively normal (at least, I assume), I'm not going to be so tight-up on the bios this time around. Just describe a few important events in your character's life. If you've got a ton more to say about what's happened to your character, then by all means, go for it!
Other: My favorite category. Anything else you'd like to add about your character goes here. Do they have a theme song? A favorite food? Least favorite class? Do they have any standing relationships, good, bad, or neutral, with any of the other players (you might want to PM the players first) of note? Do the characters have any odd habits? Anything else you'd like to add about your characters that don't quite fit anywhere else goes here.

"tango with a mango"
(I just made my grandson! I based him off of my realself but changed the relation since I would be about sixty-three. Oh yea!)

Name: Roand Lee Daugherty

Gender: Male

Age: 19

Appearance: http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r221/umazak/sexym.jpg

Items: A small green rainbow pocket knife handed down through his family, a laptop, newest iPOD, and a lot of pencils

Strengths: He was accepted into the school for his published books which all won "Book of the Year" while he was only thirteen years old. He also tends to train in various martial-arts to beter his horizons for wrighting which led to the creation of his own style.

Weaknesses: He tends to get a bit crazy in times of MAJOR stress and take on the personality of the heros from his wrightings.

Abilities: He is the sole user of the fighting style, Kanse no Miko. As for powers, well he tends to have the annoying visions of the future but only on certain occaisons when he's REALLY tired and when he's asleep(true thing about me too).

Personality: Roand is normally a very shy lad who doesn't have any motor or verbal skills when it comes to the girls that he likes. He's very sensitive about his feelings but will not show them for a while. He mainly shows little of no emmotion around normal people but when it comes to the people that he knows and trusts, you can't get him to shut up.

Bio: Roand is the grandson of the famous author Shannon Lane Daugherty. He was originally going to be named after his great-grandfater, but his mom had something else to say about that. He has always been put under pressure since his first book while people were saying that he was beter than his grandfather at the time. Since then, he has increased his ability to write and to imagine some of the most intriguing concepts.

Other: When he starts on a rant or something of the nature, it's always wise to back away before something gets broken.

Kool RP Stickxkeyblade! ^^

Tango with a Mango.

Name: Joan Corscher

Gender: Female

Age: 19

Appearance: [Ill get a pic up later] Has long red hair down to her lower-neck or shoulders, blue eyes and wears casual clothes such as baggy jeans and shirts with artistic logos and such.

Items: Joan holds a precious, small diary with her which she keeps wherever she goes. It was given to her by her now-deceased father.

Strengths: Joan got accepted into the university for her brilliant expertise in music. She learnt to play the piano on her own starting at the age of 6, and she played the saxophone in public for money. Several experts whom she played for in order to get admittance into the university even told her that her expertise could and might even reach the level of Beethoven or Mozart.
She doesn't think according to her emotions, most of the time, and has control over her emotions and mind. In fact, there is so much control and power in that manipulation that her mind might even get to the next level......

Weaknesses: Joan finds greif a terribly difficult thing to get over. Ever since the death of her family, she has never been able to keep hold of the building sorrow within her. Thus, she attempts to hide the past and renew it, but it always lurks and creeps somewhere in her mind, and sometimes even makes her ill or makes her lose control of her mind and emotions.
And when she pushes it away REAL hard, the greif retalitates and lunges in the night...*hint hint*

Abilities: Even though Joan never found it a great interest, she if ultimately flexible and can contortion into impossible positions. No, it doesn't bring her pain, although seems embarassing when people are around. However, she doesn't do it much, because she starts comparing herself to a circus freak [=P]

As well as having the abilities of a contortionist, Joan also has dreams. Dreams concieved of grief, guilt or any powerful yet haunting emotion that creep up on her at any moment. Almost every night, Joan dreams of the future. But these dreams aren't your average dreams. They are nightmares. And even if they show positive signs of the future, they still somehow merge into nightmares and bother Joan to the point that she gets physically ill or injured...

Personality: Joan reacts well to people around her. Although she has a hard time making friends because of the sorrow that haunts her so [see bio]. However, she is still laid-back and kind, even though it sometimes physically hurts her to do so. She doesn't have an interest for the opposite sex at all, and despises when boys flirt and such. In fact, for some odd reason, she even gets embarassed and just hates being around boys...

Furthermore, she can't take accepting what's wrong. Joan'll do whatever she can to make things right, especially when it comes to right and wrong.

Bio: Joan was born as an illegitimate child, sadly. Her parents couldn't hide the truth, and so married without informing their family. Ever since the loveless marraige, both families fought over Joan. Soon, Joan's father's mother was killed, and both families were in utter chaos.
Joan's mother's siblings were put in prison for 'helping' with the murder, for two decades, and the mother's father was put in jail for life for the murder. This happened when Joan was 5. Their parents gave birth to another child then, and decided to give Joan to an orphanage, for reasons unknown.

Ever since then, Joan's life was miserable. But not until she'd heard of the news that her parents were burnt alive in a fire that destroyed the entire appartment building they once lived in. And because Joan was so young, she broke-down, and wasn't able to accept the facts. She ran away from home and lived with a friend that once lived in her apartment building, but ran away again when she was 15 and found that her friend's mother tried to kill her, again, for reasons unknown.

Tango with aMANGO!

Name: Bryan Haynes

Gender
: Male

Age: 19

Appearance: He has long black hair, and brown eyes. He used to wear glasses, but now wears contacts. He has dark rings around his eyes. He wears stuff from Hot Topic, and nothing else.

Items: He carries around a knife everywhere. Also has his laptop ever present.

Strengths: He's a computer genius, and a math wiz.

Weaknesses: He's always late, and he doesn't care about his life.

Abilities: None.

Bio: When he was young, he knew he was different. Even his parents were afraid of him. He found out his genius at the age of 12, when he made his own laptop. He hated being different, so he cut himself from there on out. He did horrible in school on purpose, but the last test he took, was perfect. It was a collage entry exam, so he came to this school now.

Personality: He's quiet, and keeps everything to himself. He'll answer a question if noone else does though. He's very cold and distant.

OOC: No tests? I love this RP already!

Tonight, we're having tango with a mango!

Name: Jayde Malcolm

Gender: Female

Age: 18

Appearance: http://www.animegalleries.net/img/162315 except the cross is replaced with a yin-yang and she is wearing on fingerless glove on her right hand. Jayde appears to be a tomboy. She's also 5'4 in height.

Items: Always carries an MP4 player, a laptop for school and a video camera

Strengths: The reason Jayde was accepted into the academy was because of her movie creating genius. She loves to create movies and hopes that one of them will get an Academy award one day. She is constantly thinking of new plots, stunts, special effects etc. alike that will make a perfect movie to watch.

Weaknesses: Truth be told, Jayde is in fact near sighted. She can hardly see a thing if it's too far away (say 20 meters or so) for her eyes to tell what exactly she is seeing. So she usually perfers to be closer to the board at school.

Abilities: Jayde is a black belt in karate. She's been taking it ever since she was five years old. Jayde also has the ability to feel one's emotions. Not only will she feel them but she'll actually copy them too from time to time.

Personality: Jayde can be often enthusiastic about her dream. Although she seems rather laid back, cynical and sarcastic most of the time, she is actually a bit hyper when she's in her directing zone.

Bio:

Birth

Jayde still remembers her first movie when she was only a year old. It was Baby Einstein version 3. She loved the colors and shapes but she didn't get what it all meant. There was just no story. She didn't see the point of all these random shapes and animals. She was always left dumbstruck and confused. At age three, she saw her very first movie that actually had a plot. The movie was Cinderella. She loved it so much. The way the plot flowed, the effects, everything. At age six was when she go into the habit of making her own movies. Her first feature film ever was with her dog, Shiloh (yes, after the famous dog), entitled "Summer Bummer". A new director was born.

Past

But along the way in life, Jayde was often physically and mentally abused by her mother when her father died when she was only eight. Her mother believed Jayde was the reason that her father died. As a result, Jayde blames herself for being "responsible" for her fathers death.

Present

When Jayde learned that she had been accepted into Blackwing Academy, her life was forever changed. Finally, she could work on her dream than school work. To her, this could be the first step into a dream come true... or into a strange nightmare when a mystery goes around in the school.

Protofan, you've got almost everything filled out, but could you elaborate on what you mean by "super genius?" Does this mean he's good at everything to the extreeme, or just kinda good at everything, or good at building computers and taking tests, or what? I don't mean to be picky, but I'd just like a little more specifics. You also need a personality section, please. =)

Twilight External... We'll start... Uh... When I say so? ^__^;
I know, I know. It's an unreliable date, but it depends on when I think we've got enough players and when I've got a little bit of time to start it off. Hopefully I'll start it tonight, or earlier depending on who joins.

Feel free to TANGO with a MANGO. Just keep your hands off of mine


Name: Terran Stromrider

Gender: Male

Age: 19

Appearance: Terran is taller than most of his friends, including Liz and he constantly teases her about it. He is 6'1", and wears a big, loving smile almost all of the time. He has long shocking blue hair that his mother hates and wears contacts that make his eyes crimson (His mom hate those as well). His skin is well tanned, being the beach-loving bum he is. He wears faded blue jeans, with small frays in them, but nothing very noticeable. His shirt has uneven sleeves, the left being longer than the right. The design on it is that of an intricate skull and somewhat pirate themes. His belt that he wears is extremely long, and Terran loves it to kind hang. Terran has two tattoos; the one on his back being that of a Celtic cross and the other on his left palm and being that of the Japanese symbol for "Heaven". He wears a silver ring on his right hand pinkey with the Hindu "Om" sign carved into it. Around his neck is a necklace with a amythist pendent.

Items: He always carries his sketch book and sketching equipment, and his very old school iPod that cost him an arm and a leg. Other items he owns are his flute and his gardening tools. He also has a laptop in his room, and comes out of the dorm occasionally.

Strengths: Terran's to biggest strengths are art and gardening. He started artistry at 13 and really worked on it. He started with computer art and slowly extended his range to other things such as sketching and painting. Gardening has simply been a love of his ever since he was young. He also has a high amount of intelligence, but nothing compared to his artistry skills. The only other thing he's good, or Liz at least says so, is that he can get a girl to fawn over him easily and surfing, which Terran doesn't do to much any more.


Weaknesses: Terran fears only one thing majority. Well two actually, but the later is so rare to occur, its almost insane. The first being afraid of heights, and the second... well, being thrown into a pit of lava. But how likely is that to occur? He has a slight weakness for a pretty girl (And Liz, but you shouldn't tell her that!) and for chocolate, which he loves and will eat to much if he is given the chance. But perhaps his biggest disability is that he is deaf in his left ear and always has been since he was born.

Abilities: Terran obviously can perform incredible art feats, but when he gardens, thats something special. He can, somewhat, increase the growth rate of plants. Thats why he picked up gardening as a child. While in Kindergarten, when his class was doing a pea experiment, his grew to the size of what it took a month to grow in, normally, in a week. He then put his own little mini garden in his window sill, and with in 2 and 1/2 weeks, all the plants were in full bloom, and remained that way until deep into the fall.

Personality: Terran is what most consider the silent artistic type. But he has a bit more to him than just that. He prefers to be with people he knows well, and once you do, most would consider him the "life of the party" type. With friends he wears a big, almost goofy smile. Every calls him a flirt, yet he doesn't know what their talking about of course. He can be a small smart allec and just a bit sarcastic when he wants... which is almost all of the time...

Bio: Terran was born to a single mom, who also happened to be one of the most powerful lawyers in the state. That being it meant loneliness, but money to spare. And thus Terran spent many days alone from an early age. He cleaned the house, walked to school, and grew up alone. He worked hard in school in hopes of impressing his mom, which nothing ever did impress her. He felt alone. And then he discovered his "gift".

It had been a week after his class had started their gardening project, and everyones was barely opening up. Except Terran's. His was already near blooming. His teacher was amazed and so were his classmates. Yet, as usual, his mother didn't care. So he found gardening tools in his garage, and started his own little window sill garden. Within a few weeks, it was already in full bloom. He was amazed, and he kept working on not only his personal garden, but a garden in his whole yard. And his was always the largest in his neighbor hood.

During his last year in Elementary School he met Liz. He had became head of the school Gardening Committee, and was working in one of his favorite spots. A few of the seedlings he had planted a week before were ready to bloom, and Terran wanted to see them bloom personally. He watered them, and waited and imagined them blooming, slowly, but faster than normal, they bloomed. And after one or two bloomed, he had heard someone stepping up behind him. And it was Liz. She was very intrigued at what he was doing. And thats when not only the flowers around Terran went into full bloom at that moment. So did a friendship.

High school was just as easy for Terran as Elementary School was. His high intelligence glided him through school. His art talents led him to be the schools top artist and his gardening skills led him to be the Head of the Gardening Committee again. Terren and Liz worked together throughout high school because they did have all their classes together. They went to the movies often, Liz was always Terran's favorite subject in his paintings.

And then one day, Terran found more to Liz than he thought. More than he could ever guessed, finding that she had abilities. Like him. Terran had came over to pick Liz up to go see this new movie that they both wanted to see. It was supposedly a real tear jerker. And when he came into her room (Her parents knew Terran well, and just let him in, telling him that Liz was in her room). He saw her do an amazing thing. She was making a pencil float. And him merely opening the door spooked her, and she sent the pencil flying right into the wall next to his head. They still went to the movie, but Liz was far to upset to enjoy it, so Terran merely comforteted her throughout the movie.

Afterwards, Terran convinced her to tell her parents. She refused a first, but she soon reliezed it was the right thing. It was hard for Liz, but evgen harder for her parents. Being Rocket Scientists, that could not believe her because she had no proof. And it took a toll on her, but her parents could not accept the emerging group of people like her and Terran. And as she told them, Terran held her hand. For comfort, and, even if Liz didn't know, affection.

Soon as Terran was looking for accelerated schools for him and Liz to go to, he discovered Blackwing University. They both applied and were accepted. They gathered their few posestions, and headed for the University. And when they arrived, they were already more comfortable. Liz had not decieded on what she wanted to do, yet Terran decieded to become a Teacher of Art. And that was the new expirience started for both of them...



Other:Theme Song: Santa Fe- Angela Aki
Quote" "The Fire of the angry only burns the angry"
Terran likes club dancing and also plays the flute in his spare time. One of Terran's bad habbits is that he twirls hishair whenever he is really bored.

Thank you very much for editing, Protofan. Much better now. :D
And here you go, Inferno. Hope it works alright for you, and changes are always arrangeable. XD

Aaaand I think I should mention that the whole "strange powers" thing is treated a lot like the gay rights concept is today. A lot of older people are against it, a lot of the younger generation is for it, and there are tons of people in between. Now I'm not looking for perspectives on the particular topic--I'm just giving y'all a metaphor so that you'll know how the world might think of you and your powers.

TANGO with a MANGO~!

Name: Elizabeth Parks (but she urges people to just call her "Liz." She is in no way related to Rosa Parks, but people have asked before, so...)
Gender: Female
Age: 18

Appearance:
Elizabeth.png

She's usually seen wearing flowery shirts, lacy jackets, and bows and ribbons in her hair regardless of the season, the current fashion trends, or the temperature. Her face comes in three expressions: joyful, concerned, and concentrating. She likes to keep her hair short and her nails are usually painted in bright colors.

Items: She keeps a little make-up bag with her at all times, although it's filled not with lipstick and eyeliner, but with ribbons and bows and bits of lace. It's also got a mirror, a few pencils, a bit of paper, and some paper-clips in it. Basic office supplies. Other than that, she carries around a little electronic planner that has a constant (but slow) connection to the internet. She's pretty sure there's pepper-spray in there too, but she's never had to use it.
Strengths: She is a problem solver to the extreme. Things like equations are mere child's play for her, and she's good at weighing out the factors to anything to come up with a solution. Socially, she's one of the best friends you could ask for. She tries her best to be loyal, patient, keep secrets, cheer everyone up when they're feeling blue, and look at the bright side of every situation or the good part of every person.
Weaknesses: She's very edgy when it comes to her powers. She doesn't mention them to anyone, and gets a bit nervous whenever the entire power thing comes up in conversation. She's also has some trouble standing up for herself if she's ever being picked on or treated unfairly. She has what she's called a "fear of confrontation," which means she doesn't want to oppose anyone for the fear of her own personal safety or the fear that she might have made the wrong decision.
She also secretly fears for Terran a lot. She worries that he's going to get in trouble one of these days, but knows that she's just overreacting. She doesn't usually mention these fears because she thinks she'll sound... Well, paranoid.
Abilities: Physically, she's nothing special. Kinda shrimpy, actually. But she's discovered that with enough concentration, she can actually pick up small objects and move them around with her mind. It's very hard on her mentally and physically, however. It's possible that she could get better with practice, but she tries her hardest not to even mention that she has this power, so...

Personality: She's very cheery around everyone, whether they be teachers or students or strangers or her best friends. She's usually polite around everyone, but that mostly comes from her professional upbringing. As she says, "laughter is the best medicine," and "pretty ribbons make everything better!" She loves the little things in life, like bright colors and spring flowers.
She isn't the kind of person to get right up in your face with a "HOW Y'ALL DOING?" attitude; she's actually much quieter than that. Her actions are subtle, her words are carefully chosen, and a lot of the time she works out what's happening in her life like a mathematical formula that will get her the best results. It's a bit hard to tell that behind her smile and girly-girl exterior lies the mind of a genius, clicking away at all the factors and possible outcomes.

Bio: Liz grew up in a rich neighborhood. Her parents were both pretty smart scientists that dealt with stuff like the size of the universe or something. She never really asked what they did--she just knew it had to do with space and that it was something entirely boring to her. All through elementary school, she found life much too easy. She got her homework done before school was out, she didn't have to study for tests, and she even got bumped up a grade somewhere in between. It was when she got moved upwards in the fifth grade that she met Terran. She caught him playing in the elementary school gardens after school... Or at least, she had thought he was playing. It turned out that he was growing things; beautiful flowers and plants that she'd never seen so beautiful. To this day she still thinks she may have startled him with her outward curiosity and playfulness, but eventually they became good friends. They were even in the same grade classes and everything.

Then came highschool. It was just as easy for her as elementary was, but she purposely did something wrong on occasion so as not to look like a total teacher's pet. One day, she had to go into work with her parents for one reason or another, and they left her in a room while they checked on their own projects. In that room, there happened to be an unsolved and incomplete equation on a see-through board. No one was around, so she picked up the marker and started to solve it. It was a bit challenging, but she even went back and fixed a couple of mistakes the previous person had made. Her parents walked in just as she was finishing, and were amazed that their daughter had solved an equation for time-space anomalies in black-holes that a room full of scientists hadn't been able to solve for weeks. The word spread. Soon she was the town's little genius.

But of course, all through highschool she was everyone's "little misunderstood genius." She was always made fun of, for one reason or another. Either because she was so damn smart and people found it weird, or because she just looked like an easy target to pick on. But no matter how tough life got, no matter how messed up her non-existent social life got, Terran was always there somehow. They laughed together, did school projects together, even watched the occasional sappy movie together. He was also the first one to find out--completely on accident--about Liz and her powers.
She'd made a few friends throughout school, but it was Terran who faced her parents with her. She told them that she had those strange powers, and they didn't take it well. Even to this day, she didn't blame them for their reactions. They were rocket scientists, after all, and scientists are afraid of what they don't know. That's why they try to find the answers to everything, so that they wouldn't be afraid. Liz knew she was afraid, but she never would have been able to tell anyone about any of it if Terran hadn't been there, holding her hand the whole time.

And the rest, as they say, is history. Shedding off her old life, the applied to Blackwing University, deciding to find her own way in life instead of her parent's way. Her parents wanted her to follow in their footsteps and become a scientist herself--a job she knew she was perfect for. But she didn't want to do it. It just wasn't interesting to her. It's her second year at the University, and she loves the place with all her heart. The people understand her, and Terran is still there with her as well. These new rumors have been worrying her a little, but she's convinced herself that there is a completely reasonable, mathematical explanation for it all.

Other:
She secretly wants to be a model or fashion designer when she gets out of college, for at least a part time job. She also collects ribbons, bows, and lacy bits. She's got a huge chest full of them in her dorm room. Someday she wants to make a dress out of all of them.

Her theme song is "Sums" by Zemfira.
Translated from Russian, it goes something like this:

Leaving this dream, maybe someone else wants it?
Three notebooks of doubts, in my uneven script
Money in the bank, and many others like me

The night thrashes my swollen eyelids
I remember nothing, nothing about this
My love was left behind in the 20th century
And again the night is a poisoned arrow
I will never, never desert you
Just lie quietly next to me.

OOC: How's about this. If ya wanna start now, start now. XD
Anyone who wants to make a first post may do so. RP to your hearts' content, that's what I say. I just don't expect too many people to post like a wildfire since it's Christmas and all.

If anyone still wants to join after the fact, they may. I'll post the list of students at the top now. :3

Name: Naya “Ateshia” Zaldock
Gender: Female
Age: 16-22. 17
Appearance:
th370299531_l.jpg

Yes. Her hair is dyed red. It is naturally a dark brown. She has green eyes. Her usual outfit is black, and maybe some other darker colors. She enjoys wearing long shirt, skirts, or short dresses over jeans or black pants. Her hair is often a mess. The only makeup se uses is eyeliner.

Items: Naya is always seen with a black messenger bag. She has a laptop, generally caries 2 journals, and a small sketch book. Plenty of pens and a few pencils, headphones. She has an electronic book reader. Basically you download books into it, like a palm type thing. It also has a few other functions. Also a small lighter in a not so visible pocket

Strengths: Rhetoric, manipulation, Persuasion, politics and problem solving (not in the mathematical sense.) She won debates and model congresses, a few quite above her age group. She is politely very smart, and can analyze people qite well. Taking the idea from Benjamin Franklin’s youth, she used the name of “Ateshia” to write to many papers and politicians. One of these such letters was knowledge in a presidential speech. They eventually figured out who she. In addition she is very stilled writer and has published short stories and a non-fiction about the creation of “Ateshia.” She is an ok artist to. Nothing amazing though

Weaknesses: Mental instability. Naya has been diagnosed with Bi-polar disorder and insomnia. Mostly it isn’t bad enough to have to much effect, especially because she is being treated for it. She also sometimes worries about getting out of control or times when she did. She also has a few quirks. She hates shoes, loves gloves, twirls her hair and sits either cross-legged or, more often, with her knees hugging her chest.

Abilities: One of the reasons she is so scared of loosing control is that sometimes things that don’t make sense happen. Pictures fall of shelves, forks slide across the table. She hasn’t really been able to harness this. The fact that she can’t understand it bothers her.

Personality:? Despite her extreme abilities of persuasion and rhetoric, she is a bit awkward. She is very curious and loves learning and observing. She doesn’t say much that isn’t necessary, in her opinion, to say. She isn’t very trusting, something that helped her in past pursuits, and is somewhat withdrawn when she doesn’t have to be otherwise. Naya has problems with respect of people who aren’t as smart as her, and hates being incapacitated for whatever reason.

Bio: Was born into a lower middle class family, adopted by a foster family at age 4, for reasons that were most likely financial. Lived in a loving home that supported her, although not very rich. She went to public schools and skipped a grade and was in many advanced classes. She competed and one debate in leagues much older than her. She created “Ateshia when she was 13 and started writing to local papers. Eventual the letter reached leaders both domestic and foreign.

Other:
Math has never been her strongest point. She also has an autistic younger brother at home.

Boldly going nowhere...
OOC: Sticky said that we could start now if we wanted to... so I guess we start now.

Jayde sat quietly on the couch in the study hall room typing away on her laptop seeing if she can edit the special effects on her test project or not. For a moment Jayde somewhat spaced out wondering what will happen in her first actual movie. Then she snapped out of it and continued working.
