Okay, this is kinda a fucked up idea because I don't know much about the actual program that I based this off (obviously, one with the same name, so I'll throw my ideas out there, it's gonna be a long, long read...) CRAZY, LONG EXPLANATION THAT ONLY MAKES HALF SENSE FOLLOWS For starters, I wanna clarify a few things so that you don't read only to find out that this isn't interesting for you. 1. This will be an mxm roleplay, and I really, really do not want to change this fact, as it is pretty much what my plot evolves around, two young men. 2. This will have some sci-fi elements, so if that's of no interest to you, I wouldn't recommend reading on. 3. There will be a lot of triggering elements such as neglect, suicide(attempts), brain washing(to be more specific, medical tampering with the brain), depression and death. Lots of it. 4. If any of you know Super Dangan Ronpa 2: Goodbye, Despair Academy, you can see where this shit is coming from. 5. The characters I want to play are two of the Ultimate Despairs - the one survivor of the Reserve Course, and one of the other fifteen students. I was thinking I played the character from the Reserve Course, as I kinda already have him made up in my head. He's based off the actual main character of the story. o-o 6. The Ultimate Despair mentioned in the story is dead, and their followers that our characters fall under all have a "part" on hers on/in their body. My character had his right eye replaced. So really, it could be any limb. I would prefer it was something on the outside, though. 7. For your character you will need to establish what put them in despair - it could be anything, his parents dying in an accident, abandoned by his parents, killing his own family, sacrificing his loved ones for the sake of despair... as long as they're fucked up, everything goes! 8. I'm a horrible person at explaining things, so if there's anything that doesn't make any sense at all, I'll try to explain as well as I can. 9. The roleplay will start with them in the game. Their game avatars looks like their "past" selves before Ultimate Despair got their hands on them. So they won't have any of their limbs replaced - and they won't remember who they really are. They will feel like normal Ultimates. Well, that aside, I guess I'll get started. It has a sort of post-apocalyptic feel to it, but not really... The year is 2020. Five years prior, the most prestiguous school in all of the world, nicknamed The Academy of Hope, suffered a tragedy. This academy had been founded with one sole purpose: for mankind's hope. They searched the world in every nook and cranny to find the best of the best - to make these special, talented children, dubbed Ultimates, build the fundament for hope in the world. The Ultimates were chosen from kids who were already high school students, and put into the academy to groom them for their future using their talent. What they did not know was that these Ultimates were not all symbols of hope, and before they could stop it - Ultimate Despair had already infiltrated the academy. Part of the Academy used these ultimates as text subjects - trying to find out what they could do to further provide people with hope in the hopeless world - and that's when they realized that with these kids getting in for free and all of the projects the academy had started, they needed money. Thus, the Reserve Course was formed. It was for students who, for a certain amount of money, could take an entrance exam and get into the academy. The Academy continued their research, and finally created a plan for mankind's hope; forming the Ultimate Hope, the Ultimate of all Ultimates. A young man from the Reserve Course was chosen, and they conducted experiments on his brain. They wanted to make his talent talent itself - nothing else. After several months where they directly interfered with his brain, he was ready, a being with no memories, no hobbies, no personality, simply existing because he is the Ultimate Hope. Of course, knowing this, Ultimate Despair had to do something - the only point of their existence is bringing others despair - nothing more, nothing less. They had to do this with the Ultimate Hope too, and that's when they caused the Tragedy - an event followed by several horrible incidents. The Ultimate hope was out of control, and in a fit of rage killed thirteen students of the Student Council. To protect their project, the school concealed the incident, and that's when riots broke out across the world - all as Ultimate Despair had anticipated. Ultimate Despair dragged the Ultimate Hope into their grip, using the Reserve Course students to form a group of Ultimate Despairs - not just one person, and with this, dragging in fellow Ultimates to their plan. The over 2500 students of the Reserve Course followed Ultimate Despair blindly, living lives with no future, sacrificing their family, friends, lovers, hell, even their own bodies for the sake of despair. Ultimate Despair initiated their plan and had every single one of the Reserve Course students commit suicide, aside from a select young man. The Ultimates that had been inflicted with despair and that sole survivor was brought to the headquarters of the organization that The Academy had formed in order to cultivate hope - The Future Foundation. In order to save these fifteen Fragments of Despair, as they were called, a group within the Foundation abducted them and put them into the Neo World Program. The Neo World Program was part of a project called the Hope Restoration project, and the program has one purpose - loading the consciousnesses of the Ultimate Despairs in to replace their bad memories with good memories - a virtual world where they would become friends and create hope - in order to stop them from despairing. What the group didn't expect was for a virus to inflict the program. The program cannot be stopped in the middle of everything, as that would cause the fifteen participants of the program to lose their consciousnesses and stay in comatose forever. But what will these young people do now that they have been forced to kill each other for the sake of survival? Will they be able to escape the Neo World Program safely?
