We need your help to keep this board buzzing with creativity! Pitch in and help write a story set in the world of a book or series that you love. Just pick a role to play and break a leg. Who knows? This could lead to fame and fortune!

FOUR EASY STEPS TO STARDOM:
1: Read any thread below. (If there aren't any, submit your own — you could be the first to post!) That's the story so far. At the end of each mini-chapter, the author tells you which character goes next.
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.
Character Age: Ditto.
Setup: Who is this character and why is he/she here?
Description: What does your character look like right now? This can change throughout the story, if your character suddenly falls into a mud puddle or is splashed with purple paint. Stuff happens, right?
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.
Story Setting: Where are we right now?
Action!: Here we go — what's happening? Don't forget dialogue!
YOUR TURN, X!: (Pass the story over to another character.)

//Moretti Academy's Junior School of the Arts RP. [6th-8th]//

 

 

 

//Plot;//

 

 

 

You are a student attending Moretti Academy for the Arts that is attached to the local Santoro Senior High. As you are practically on campus with the everyday high school student plus your middle school/junior high peers, you have the ability to take certain higher level classes which are usually available to high school students. The best way to explain your position is this: There's the Major Standard High School [Santoro Senior High], its Academy of the Arts [Moretti Academy for the Arts at Santoro Senior High], and your peers. 

 

 

To explain the rather odd grouping of years, in your district it is possible for the students who are advanced in Math to take Algebra I Regular or Honors, usually Honors, in 7th Grade rather than the usual 9th Grade. But, for those who undergo Algebra I, they must keep their grades above average; especially, if they wish to be able to take the Algebra I required Final and pass to Geometry, which is usually a 10th grade level Math class, and so forth.

 

 

In fact, this particular school runs on a Trimester Schedule and has a Fall Term, Winter Term, and Spring Term. If you take a class for 2 of those Terms, it accounts to 1 full credit. Core classes such as English, Math, Science, etc. are for 1 full year. 

 

 

Even though you are attending the same school as high schoolers, you are split away from them. The school typically has several smaller halls/buildings along with your Halls. The various subjects are split up around the school. Usually, your main classes other than electives are about the West, East, and sometimes South Wing. The school has recently opened up the program to 6th Years; but, they are usually kept far away from the Senior High students, for obvious reasons. 

 

 

You take your Academic classes and everything else before your Major classes. Those are split up into having two Major classes per day on a rotating schedule obtained at the beginning of the school year. Upon auditioning for the program, you are split into skill levels and you take your Major class by your skill level. Typically, you take 9 maximum classes per Semester, one of those 9 is your Major class which is split into two classes each day. You always have your Major class at the end of the day and you rotate by whichever teacher is teaching your class. This is always pre-determined by skill level. You are allowed to take a smaller elective related to your Major; so, your Elective may be an Ensemble or Choir in which you must audition into in order to attend, a Jazz Improv class,  or even a class on Shakespeare or Literature.

 

 

Please remember that students attending the Academy do not necessarily have to have any prior experience at all as they will be sorted into their appropriate level classes.

//While you need to follow this structure, it isn't necessary for you to have to look up this or that in order to follow this. You could say that they shown an example of pottery, read lines from Shakespeare. Songs from Disney are allowed, obviously.//

 

 

//Additional Information;//

 

 

If your student is auditioning for Musical Theatre and/or Vocal Music, please be sure to include which singer you think that your student sings similar to, even though your student is most likely untrained and not a professional nor the same age as the singer in question.

 

 

You can also include their vocal range such as C4 - C6, their vocal type such as Soprano, and their specific type such as Soprano I, plus whether they have a soft and light texture, or even a sweet texture to their voice when they sing; plus, whether they can sing higher or lower than the singer in question. 

 

 

I will also inform you of their vocal type, at least, if possible. 

 

 

Remember, typically, Chorus runs on a Soprano-Alto-Tenor-Bass roles; but, they could be a Mezzo-Soprano or a Baritone singer. Basically, if they are stronger with higher notes, they would be a Soprano II or Tenor II respectfully. If they are stronger with lower notes, they would be an Alto I or Bass I respectfully. 

 

 

//As my knowledge of music is very amateur, this is how I personally see it and how it will be set in this RP. You can challenge my knowledge if you wish; but, it is very amateur in nature.//
