2: YOUR TURN!! Create/copy/refine your character's profile, update the story setting, continue the story action, then pass it on to the next character.
3: Check back every day to see how the story continues.
4: Go to #2 above (try a new character on for size!). Rinse and repeat.

When does the story end? It ends when the moderator adds a comment to a mini-chapter saying "END IT!"

Wanna start your OWN story? Cut and paste the profile below and start a new thread!

CHARACTER PROFILE (copy and paste to start your own story!):
My Character: Make this up, or use an existing character from a book.

Mood: This can change every minute, as we all know.
Faves: Help us get to know the character with a list of loves.
Detests: Tells us some stuff your character CANNOT STAND.

//Churchill-Kingsbury Academy

  

|After The Dark Days|

 

Futuristic Monarchy RP//

 

 

//Intro.//

 

//I admit that the Message title cut off the full official title of the RP. Now, proceed to the About section to learn About the RP.//

 

 

About the RP.

 

The RP is a fictional, futuristic Monarchy RP where the world has went back, after the Dark Days - a time when the world was in anarchy and chaos after several disasters occurred, to more modern monarchies following a Revolution to the anarchy and chaos.

 

The time is one of technological revolutions and much more open, connected, and together after the conclusion of the chaos. Several members of society are still shaken up by the calamity which fell upon society and the world has been put back on its feet to rebuild.

 

Your characters are attending and elite Academy for the Royalty/Nobility [their more modern descendants and distant descendants], Bourgeois [upper middle class], Diplomats [ambassadors/representatives of countries], and Scholars [the brightest, talented, gifted, intellectuals, visionaries, or just those who are there for educational pursuits - they can be from any economical class except wealthy or upper/upper middle class as they are the Bourgeois.].

 

 

The Academy.

 

The Academy is divided between Primary and Secondary Education, in the RP we will be focusing on the Secondary school, which is divided between lower secondary/junior high and upper secondary/senior high. The junior high consists of years 6 through 8 and the senior high of years 9 through Upper 12th.

 

Throughout the Years, students will study their native language, English unless it's their native language, French, a language of their choice, Mathematics, Ethics, Geography, History, Government & Politics, Economics, World Cultures, World Civilizations, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Religious Studies - Religious Education, Religion, Philosophy & Ethics, or World Religions, Technology [Informational Technology & Design Technology], Physical Education, PSHEE & Home Economics [Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education], Ancient Greek, Latin, Arts, Art, Music, Career Education, Political Studies & World Societies, Etiquette, and more subjects.

 

The Lower Secondary classes are rigid and not very lenient The curriculum for 11th is when the classes start becoming lenient at the school. In 10th is when students begin listing their focus classes to take for the General Education exam for 10th/11th year. They are required to take it by/within 11th year; but, they can opt to take it in 10th and if they pass and are satisfied with their score, they do not have to take it in 11th; but, it must be passed, regardless. They also take Advanced General Education exams [A1 and A2 with A2 being more advanced] in 3 to 4 and 4 to 5 subjects, which are their more selective focus classes.

 

Students can choose to board at the Academy or be a Day Student; but, Day Students still have the option for a room at any time in case they must board at the Academy for a night. Dorms at the academy are highly selective with one person per room. Eight out of ten rooms are available as the two extra rooms per floor are for day students who live near by or drive to the Academy in case for some unforeseeable reason they must stay over at the Academy. There are several dorms at the Academy which are different depending upon whether it is lower secondary or upper secondary dorms. Lower Secondary dorms are more color coded and referred to by colors while Upper Secondary are more referred to by what group/major it's for. [For example, Red/Redding for lower secondary and Fraser for Human Sciences].

 

There are no required uniforms except for when stated and there is a dress code which must be followed.

//@appleshoes2; I will admit, I am very, very impressed with your form. So, before I begin critiquing it; I would just like to inform you of that.//

 

Character's Name; Leandra "Lea" Amesfort //Acceptable.//

Character's Age/Year; Um, she's 15, so that would mean... //15? Did she recently turn 15? Is she going to turn 16? Was she born in the early months or later months? She's in the high school years, when it comes to the American school system. Freshmen are 14-15, Sophomores are 15-16, and Juniors are 16-17. A Freshman who is born in the later months would be turning 15 and a Freshman born in the earlier months would be turning 14, if that helps. Maybe, she's a Sophomore?//

Country; Canada //Acceptable.//

Royalty/Nobility, Bourgeois, Diplomat, or Scholar; Bourgeois //Acceptable.//

Languages Character Speaks [Fluently and Non-fluently + English]; Yes, she speaks English, also French and Latin //I realize that she speaks English, French, and Latin; however, Latin is more of an ancient language. She can take it; but, I would like to request another modern language for her in addition to the previous 3. A romance language [Spanish, Italian, etc.] or a language such as German could be good suggestions for her.//

Career of Choice [Will lead to your Major]; She's not sure exactly what she wants to do with her life, but she might become a linguistics expert //That's fine. She could study four modern languages.//

Interested Major [Out of Humanities, Sciences, Linguistics, Human Sciences, Business/Economics, or Arts - if Career Choice doesn't reveal it.]; Linguistics //Acceptable.//

Looks/Appearance; Peach skin with freckles, a small nose, hazel eyes, a small, pointed face, big black glasses, long, straight auburn hair. Short at 5'3. //Acceptable.//

Personality; Kind but can be naive, will do anything for a friend, socially awkward, humble, shy, smart, assertive, a friend to nature, overly sensitive, a pushover but wishes she were braver. //I would say that's a good mix of traits for now.//

Gender; Female //Acceptable.//

Optional History; Leandra's sister works for the United Nations, her brother is a superintendent of a junior high/high school district, and Leandra's mother and father (an accountant and lawyer, respectively) want Leandra to follow in their footsteps. However, that's a bit much to live up to, especially for Lea, who just wants to enjoy life and squeeze lemonade out of every moment. //Acceptable.//

Ancestry; The Amesforts are proud of their distant connection to the famous King Louis XV of France. //Acceptable.//

Clothing/Style; Secretly Lea loves to dress up, but relaxed to basic is her style. Right now, she's wearing a black zip-up hoodie unzipped, a plain white tee shirt, and a pair of dark purple pants. She's wearing her leather ballet flats and a black leather baseball cap. //Acceptable.//

Family; Andreas Amesfort (Dad), Marisa Borroughs Amesfort (Mom) Benjamin Amesfort, 30, Annaliese Amesfort Mendelsohn, 23, and Christian Amesfort, 18, a student at Yale. //Acceptable.//

Pet//s; A Husky (Avonlea), named after Leandra's favorite classics. //Acceptable.//

Friends; Asher Halliday, Eric Dover, Cammie Gough, and her childhood bestie Alison Perks. //Acceptable.//

Enemies; The entire popular squad and frenemy Kera Griswold. //Ah, I wouldn't exactly say that there's necessarily a group of populars at the school. But, there's certainly the narcissistic, materialistic, awfully mannered egotists.//

Crush/Love Interest; Asher //Acceptable.//

Optional list of interests/hobbies; Talking Latin, though it's obsolete, and Star Wars, and playing flute //Acceptable.//

Likes; Pizza, dogs, music, movies, and reading //Acceptable.//

Detests; Anyone who can be categorized as "cocky", pepperoni, and basketball //Acceptable.//

Other; She's a strict vegetarian //Acceptable.//

Dormroom/Dormmate Request; Cammie Gough //Acceptable.//

Optional POV/Point of View Color;Gold/Goldwin //Acceptable. Her color can be gold.//

Reason for Attending the School; Her parents wanted her to //Acceptable.//

Optional Roleplay Example; //I admit, I would have liked to see a roleplay example for her.//

 

//The only things that I can see that are questionable about her form at the current time would be her Year and languages of study. Although, for the most part, I can say that she is Accepted. Her form is wonderful and hopefully will set the bar of great forms for this dazzling RP for the divine.//

 

//Congratulations, Lea is accepted to the RP and I just need for you to give her a Year, another language for her to study, and to make a Roleplay sample for her. But, regardless, we can move onto the Academic portion. She would be attending upper secondary/senior high, by the way.//

 

//Suggested Languages for Lea include;

English; Spanish, German, Italian, Afrikaans, Dutch, Norwegian, Portuguese, Swedish,  Danish, Romanian, 

French; Italian, Spanish, Portugese, Romanian, other Romance languages

Latin; Romance languages, 

Of course, there's some languages I didn't list. Personally, I would suggest Spanish, Italian, or German for her to take. German is quite similar to the English language. Italian and Spanish are both romance languages. Thus, the three languages are similar to other languages she knows. Spanish is used in Central and South America as well as Spain and some parts of the US. Italian is used as a first language in Italy and in Switzerland by some of their populace; it is also used as a second language for several countries. German is used as a first language in Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland. You may also find some who speak it in Denmark due to their close proximity to Germany plus some border squabbling from before. There are also those who speak those languages as a second language and some students may learn Italian or German as a second language in the US as well. Also, I believe Vatican City may also speak Italian due to being surrounded by Italy other than Latin. If you have any questions about any languages, you may ask them. I wouldn't suggest Russian or another language such as Japanese due to the need of learning another type of //alphabet// if you will. Not only would she need to know what the words mean and how sentences work; but, she would need to know what symbols those words are for. Such as cyrillic with Russian, and there's like three or four different things to learn with Japanese. Plus, there's so many symbols you need to understand with both language. Also, they're not easy languages for native English speakers or for native French speakers; but, I would think that Russian would be easier for someone who's first language was English rather than one who's first language was French. Although, out of the two, Russian has Ukrainian and Belarusian which may be comprehendable due to being closely linked.//

//The Acceptance Response.//

 

After students have emailed or otherwise sent in their forms to the school or for some, were on the forms since, almost their birth; they receive an acceptance letter. Within each acceptance letter is a more personalized letter of sorts. Not only are they presented with a letter congratulating them on their entrance into the school; but, they also receive a student package. One of the papers includes a stapled small packet containing an Academic Form with a list of courses they could take for that upcoming school year. Due to signing up and possibly including what their focus subjects would be within the academy, some of their courses have a line in pencil next to the box indicating what they may be interested in taking.

 

The packet also depends on their Year, of course, as every student's is different.

The students continue with their Native Language. As it is their Native Language, they are expected to have an extensive knowledge and skill of understanding the language. They also pursue English at an advanced or intermediate level as it would be their Native or Second Language. French is studied at advanced, intermediate, or beginning levels. Their Language of Choice is studied at a beginning or intermediate level determined by their understanding and exposure to the language. The Social Studies is considered to include Ethics, Geography, History and a general introduction to other Social Studies. Ethics is taught in the first year of Junior High on an introductory level and discusses basic morals and procedures in society. Geography & History start off with the beginning of history and end in the 8th grade at modern day. Both courses brisk through both courses before they may go in depth during the classes, if taken during their Senior High years. The Sciences are taught at a comprehensive level designed to educate and inform students to the point they can be prepared to study two or three sciences [Biology, Chemistry, and Physics] or if possible, they may request to take one of the main three sciences and an additional science [Geology, Astronomy, Agriculture] which may be granted or denied depending on their circumstance and knowledge of said science. Religious Studies is broken into three courses; Religious Education, World Religions, and Religion Philosophy & Ethics. Students may take either of the three courses at their own preference; but, if they switch to another during their 7th or 8th year, they will be expected to have as much knowledge about the subject as their surrounding peers would. Physical Education takes place for all of the years. Students begin taking Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education & Home Economics to learn things which will benefit them in the near future. Examples of what they could learn by the end of the 8th year include cooking, sewing, industrial arts, finances, how to manage money and budgeting, and their own health and relationships as well. Students may begin Latin in Year 6; but, Latin is traditionally introduced during the 7th or 8th years. It is an elective class and is not required by the state. Although, it is very helpful when studying a romance language such as French. Students must take a class in the Arts; but, the selection is up to them. They can pursue Art, Music, Drama, or Dance, traditionally. Although, Technical Theatre and Art History are allowed courses later on. Students may pursue the elective Speech & Debate if they wish; but, it isn't required by any means. Career Education begins in Year 6 and continues throughout their years. Examples of what they could take include Medical, Business, Education, Law, or even Engineering. Political Studies & World Societies is a personal class which is only of two only taught at the Academy, made by the Academy's Curriculum, and taught by their staff. It educates about Politics and the various societies within the world including but is not limited to their Societies, how they work, how to maintain them, diplomacy, and how to maintain peace between societies. Etiquette is also the other of two personal classes made and designed specifically for the academy and taught by their staff. It goes over and educates on proper behavior, dress, silverware; but, is not limited to those subjects. Students learn to conduct themselves in all environments respectfully for the best of themselves and their country. Although, this in itself is a basic list in itself of what is allowed for them to take. Students may be granted other elective courses by their career and major, birthright, or from effort of prior years such as Photography, Film Studies, Creative Writing, Equestrian, Literature, Dressage, Ballroom Dance, etc.

The students continue with certain classes they took in previous years; however, they must take at least 9 classes including core classes and 11 at the most plus required courses due to the schools' curricula.

 

These courses go more in depth with their lessons and are more applied studies than their previous years and as a result are very rigorous, and their impact on students may be stress inducing, and exhausting due to their nature of being a course. Mathematics classes are divided by the students' Math course progression, Major, and their own abilities in Math. Several courses are introduced such as Government & Politics, Economics, World Civilizations, taking Double or Triple Sciences, Ancient Greek, Classical Music, English Literature, Fashion Design, Product Design, and Global Awareness for Years 9 through 11. An example of something they would learn in Economics would be of The Economy, The Economy & You, and The Economy & The World. 11th Years may take additional specialized classes such as Art History, Photography, Music Technology, Higher Mathematics, Psychology, and Business Studies, if they decide that they did their best on the General Education Exams they took in Year 10; these classes may be selected due to interest or because, it's their Major focus or something they would like to pursue as a career. Students, of course, as usual may be able to add certain additional classes due to interest, Major focus, Career interest, birthright, or from prior Academic years.

 

 

- Year 10 & 11 Classes for General Education Examinations;

 

Minimum Number of Classes; 9 Classes

Average Number of Classes; 10 Classes

Maximum Number of Classes; 11 Classes

At least 1 in the Humanities

 

Core; English Language, Mathematics, Modern Foreign Language, Double or Triple Science

4 to 6 Electives; Ancient Greek, Art, Classical Music, Dance, Drama & Theatre Studies, English Literature, Fashion Design, Geography, Global Awareness, History, Informational Technology, Latin, Music, Religion Philosophy & Ethics, Physical Education, Product Design, Religious Studies, Second Modern Language, World Civilizations

//The Upper Secondary/Senior High-Sixth Form Curriculum.

 

[Lower Sixth & Upper Sixth Years]//

 

 

 

The Curriculum for the Sixth Form Years are far more lenient than years prior. The Students in these years get almost free-reign to study whichever courses they want; but, in a more structured fashion. Although, the students themselves must take the Advanced General Education A1 & A2 Examinations; unlike in prior years, these years are the focusing classes for College and University level studies and as a result are less classes to study for the Exams. Once again, students may request certain courses due to certain criteria or requirements. Plus, school specific courses will be continued due to it being a requirement of the school.

 

 

 

 

- Lower & Upper Sixth Classes for Advanced General Education Examinations;

 

Number of Courses; 4 to 5 Lower Sixth/A1 Examinations; 3 to 4 Upper Sixth/A2 Examinations

 

Required Courses; Ethics, Contemporary History, Physical Education; Lower Sixth Senior Project

Selective Classes; Ancient Greek, Art & Design, Art History, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Dance, Drama & Theatre Studies, Economics, English Literature, First Modern Language, Fashion Design, Geography, Government & Politics, Higher Mathematics, History, Latin, Mathematics, Music, Music Technology, Photography, Physics, Product Design, Psychology, Religion Philosophy & Ethics, Religious Studies, Second Modern Language, World Civilizations

Dear Leandra Amesfort,


 

You have been accepted to attend Churchill-Kingsbury Academy. As you are 15, you are within the age of attending our Upper Secondary School. Please refer to the various pages stapled to the Academic packet and other sections of the student package that is stapled within. The pages of the Academic packet contain your Academic and Elective options for the upcoming school year. We realize that you may be facing a difficult time adjusting back to your classes. Within the packet, lists several members of our staff who are guidance counselors who can make this adjustment a little easier for you. Each Dorm is assigned a separate guidance counselor respectively for that Dorm, plus there's one guidance counselor for each of the four schools, and an overall head out of all of those; thus, there are four counselors you can meet with; you can also meet with the Lower Secondary Guidance Counselor of the Goldwin Dorms, if you need to as you wish to pursue the path of languages and they could guide you in the right direction if you would prefer to go to them rather than the other guidance counselors available.

 

As you know, you can be a Day or a Boarding Student; but, regardless, there will be a room for you. You may specifically request a Dorm, if you would like and we will reserve one for you.

 

If you would like to refer to a Table of Contents of what this package should contain, it should be the next paper if arranged correctly. If any items are missing, there are various ways you can go about obtaining the missing pages which are also listed at the bottom of the Table of Contents and at the upper left corner of this one. Regardless, we appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience in the near future.

 

We hereby welcome you sincerely to Churchill-Kingsbury Academy and we hope to see you attending our classes this school year.

//I would like to see more Diplomats and Scholars and less Bourgeois and Royalty/Nobility applications at this point. It would also be quite nice to see students who are not from the US as well, even if their Native Language is a language other than English. Due to how many people have applied, I would prefer to see more of those types applying than the other. In the event, that there isn't an equal ratio among the student body I will be forced to make a cap of each. I am considering a character cap of 3 to 4 for each rper. And yes, at this point I have yet to critique all forms submitted so far. After I have completed your critique, you are to edit/finalize your form for the final submission and approval. During this process, you are to also list a few classes you are interested in your character having at the Academy. I will approve or not accept your class request list as well as your final submission of your character. As of this time, anyone who has previously sent their final submission is allowed to edit their form again for re-submission. Also, please list what language is your character's native language. All students are suggested to study 3 to 4 languages. The student's Native Language, English, French, Language of Choice. Sometime during their education they will be allowed to drop and change certain classes to their preference.//

//@All Interested Or Applying; There needs to be a more even number of Diplomats and Scholars. If not, I will create a cap on Royalty/Nobility and Bourgeois. You do realize you can create more than one character; but, please, do not create another Royalty/Nobility or Bourgeois. There's already a decent number of them and in the event you will create a second character, let it be a Diplomat or Scholar please. It's not that difficult to create them anyway. It's sort of vexing to check for new applicants and all of the ones I see are of Royalty/Nobility or Bourgeois. If you really wish to create a second character that is neither a Diplomat or Scholar, create one whose Applicant Form is exactly as I am looking for; if not, just create a Diplomat or Scholar. It's easier than solving mathematical equations. Yes, you can still create them, being Bourgeois or Royalty/Nobility, just not as your second character. I am currently looking for Diplomats and Scholars. Thank you for reading.//

//@Katie; Is it just me or did the headings on the original post change? If so, then, I am seriously considering tossing this RP. Not many of the applicant replies I am receiving yield diversity nor spectacular forms anyway. Everyone wants to be either Royalty/Nobility or a Bourgeois. Or they want to create characters from native English speaking countries when you can honestly create the equivalent of a foreign exchange student. Who wouldn't want to create a foreign exchange student from Italy or France related to an Ambassador or someone of another diplomatic position? Or create an intelligent Scholar? Despite my obvious and direct message, no one creates any Diplomats nor Scholars. And it's also because the headings look absolutely abhorrent. Seriously, if you just wanted to change the headings you could have asked me before selecting such a distasteful font replacement. It's supposed to be a fancy font and not Comic Sans; although, it could be due to this new browser software.... *Sigh....* Hopefully, it is due to the browser and not a universal thing; otherwise, I am going to be severely vexed and will honestly consider tossing the RP just because of how abhorrent the original post now looks due to adjustments. In the event, you are seeing Comic Sans, it isn't supposed to be like that and if anyone is saying, it is supposed to be Comic Sans, it's supposed to be a luxurious looking font such as Pristina or Edwardian Script and anyone stating otherwise is more or less invalid as I am the creator of the thread. I know or should know of the intentions of the font that I use and why it is there.//

I decided to make a scholar character since we seem to be in need of some, haha. Also pray for me I'm making a character who's good at math and who's French. I am not either. (:

 

Character's Name; Bernadette  (Bernie) Thomas

Character's Age/Year; 15, Sophmore

Country; France

Royalty/Nobility, Bourgeois, Diplomat, or Scholar; Scholar

Languages Character Speaks [Fluently and Non-flu ently + English]; French(fluent), English(fluent), German(Non fluent)

Personality; Bernie is quick, sly, and analytical. Extroverted and bossy, she usually takes over group projects, and, being a control freak, almost everything else. She's kind, but blunt and honest to a fault. She doesn't have time for being indecisive. She's powerful and to the point. People tell her that she'd make a great politician or businesswoman, but she much prefers simpler things, such as numbers. While emotions are an annoyance for her, she has a strong, stubborn moral code, and both those professions could break that.

Gender; Female

Optional History;

Ancestry; She's from France, and her father was a successful businessman before he died.

Clothing/Style; Sharp winged eyeliner and her glasses is her signature look. She usually wears a comfy dress, leggings, when necessary, and flats. Heels are an inconvenience and she does not trust them.

Friends; N/A

Enemies; N/A

Crush/Love Interest; N/A

Optional list of interests/hobbies; Sometimes when she's stressed she'll run through equations in her head

Other;

Dormroom/Dormmate Request;

Optional POV/Point of View Color;

//@All; Since, there are very common issues with a plethora of the forms I have seen from all of you. I will take a moment to address everything. 

 

There's only 2 non-Royalty/Nobility and Bourgeois so far, I have counted. 

 

When it comes to countries, please, keep in mind the actual schooling that exists in each country. For the record, most schools teach English as a first foreign language to some degree. Even in Italy, they begin studying English in primary school or to those of you in the US, your Elementary Education. Please keep in mind the standards taught at these schools across seas. It is not always that countries teach English as a first foreign language, it could be French, or Latin; however, usually they are at least offered or it is mandatory for them to study at least some English. Of course, you could always take whatever I type as a grain of salt; but, I'm probably the only one who uses the another site for reference that isn't one you would normally use for actual scholarly research papers. But, at least, when it comes to England's education, it seems accurate. Plus, I have researched to some degree with said reference, some degree of other countries education.

 

And speaking of England. Remember the UK in itself is split into many different countries. If you mean England, then, state it as their country rather than the UK. It could be England, Scotland, Wales, or Northern Ireland, plus, the many overseas territories they could originate from. Please, also keep in mind, that in other countries, they use surnames which usually, do not sound English. Of course it could be Baker, Backer, Bauer, with Germany or possibly any German-speaking region. Also, some characters could be from two separate countries, or have a dual nationality, if that country allows it. For the record, don't expect me to be quite alright with your French diplomat having the surname of Johnson or your Italian diplomat having the surname Jefferson. Desrosiers and Gallo exist as French and Italian surnames respectively, I'm quite certain off the top of my head, and I expect you to be realistic. Who wants to hear of a French diplomat named Harry Johnson, which clearly doesn't sound French, unless of course, they immigrated to France from another country or hold dual citizenship. Not every country in the world allows for multiple citizenships; however, although, I'm quite certain if you're intrigued you can research everything I have mentioned on your own time. 

 

Now, that we have opened this, I am going to continue. Please be very detailed within the Languages Your Character Speaks section. First, I don't care how fluent your character is, if I cannot distinguish what language is the first language they have ever learned in their life [Usually known as their native language/mother tongue, it's usually also their best language and the language they would instinctly count in or think in]. Second, be as detailed as possible. Also, keep in mind to have at least 4 Flaws within the Personality section. It's not that difficult in itself to generate 4 Flaws. 

 

As a side note, if you are the creative type and are attempting the Roleplay Example, please, make it at least 1 decently/adequately sized paragraph. One or two sentences is not adequate. Five to eight sentences each of adequate to lingering length is fine.

 

Now, thank you for those of you who actually read this, then, count this in half if it will actually go in one ear and out the other to be discarded. But, for those who actually will retain this in its entirety, thank you so much for the effort you have put into this RP, I am honestly really grateful over that. Now, please, impress me, by actually creating characters of an amazing quality. Please, keep in mind to balance all ratios, caste and gender, and everything will work a little easier and at a quicker pace than it already is.//
