    A bird is nothing without it's feathers. But a feather is many things without a bird.

    At the Academy of Music and Arts (AMA), there are two groups of students. The Songbirds and the Quills. The Quills write and compose the songs and the Songbirds perform said pieces. You would think that the Quills would be the reigning group, but it is not so. The Songbirds rule the school and even thought their success heavily depends on the state of their Quill, they often verbally abuse and otherwise bully their Quills. The Quills remain silent through this, although many a time in the past they have tried to rebel, but have failed countless times.
    Will this year be different?

    Most Songbirds tend to be boisterous and flamboyant, although there are a select few that are more low key. Although most Songbirds tend to abuse their Quills, there are some who treat them either indifferently or even kindly.

    Quills are usually quiet and subdued due to their treatment over the years. Although when Quills are together they act like normal teenagers. Quills are often known to have kick ass parties that only other Quills know about.

    School Staff
    School staff are not included in the Songbirds and Quills category, however most of them do not intrude when it comes to the abuse of Quills by their Songbirds.

    Role Play Rules
    No Godmodding, Power playing, Special Snowflakes, etc.
    The majority of this roleplay will take place out of class because I find roleplaying classes is boring and tedious. That being said I will list classes just for references if you need it.
    No back and forth posting. Wait ten minutes or for another person to post before posting again.
    Two characters per person.
    This isn't a romance roleplay, so not every post should be focuses on that. However if characters are romantically involved, fade to black if things get further than kissing.
    No OOC talk in IC thread.
    Please don't use ridiculously outlandish names. No Scarlet Bloodmoons or Hawk Foxblasters.
    No Anime pictures

    Posting Requirements
    Third Person, Past tense, at least a paragraph per post (8 sentences min. not including dialogue)

She realized her musical talent when she was seven and singing silly songs in school. She was attending a Catholic Private School at the time, and her teachers did not appreciate her 'nonsense' and often disciplined her in an attempt to make her focus on what was important.

  13. Hey there, can I reserve a spot in Songbirds?
  14. Sure!
  15. Oh yes. I am still trying to find a voice for my songbird and what sort of genre she will be playing.
    • Thank Thank x 1
  16. Crap, I thought I filled out a CS for this RP @ - @
    Yes, I'm still interested in this, just gotta work on finishing the CS.
    • Thank Thank x 1
  17. @Polystical yes definitely just working on my CS! For quills do we put a dorm image with a bunk bed or do we just use the image you've provided?
  18. I'm using difference comp and all, so my previous progress has been erased. Boo.
    I had a question about the formatting of the CS, you didn't want us rearranging all of it, does that mean you don't want us to code in fieldboxes, moving pictures to the right/left side, and keeping all of it center aligned (It's fine if I have to keep it like that, I'm just worried that mine will be really long and take up a lot of unnecessary space.)
