Wake up, go to school, come home, sleep, repeat. Until recently, they all went through the motions of daily life - each experiencing the same worries, the same issues, and the same feelings that one would expect of a mid-teen highschool student. Aside from minor mishaps, none of their days crossed the border of normalcy enough to warrant any suspicion. However, their bodies were gradually degrading from within. Like the subtle yet purposeful touches of time, it occurred ever so slowly that they themselves did not notice until it was too late. At first, the symptoms were common and written off easily enough. A headache here, the occasional bout of dizziness there. Sometime after their sixteenth birthday, the symptoms began to worsen, disrupting the teenagers lives and sending them to the closest hospital for monitored care. The sickness drove their bodies to decline at a rapid pace until they were - for all intents and purposes - dead. Nothing could be further from the truth, though. Unbeknownst to them or anyone else, they were admitted to an institute where they were cared for until they awoke from their strange coma. *** Rules & Expectations Character Sheet Accepted Characters Accepted Characters Information All of Iwaku's rules apply What we're looking for in our players: A firm grasp of the English language, as well as the willingness to assess grammar and spelling mistakes in their posts before replying.

Addison 'Addie' Parker Leo Lange Lucie Valentine Maribeth Wilson Nikolai Luzchezke Sierra Morgenstern ---- This RP will be set in modern times, 2016 being the year. The exact date and time will be posted IC. By no means will our characters have been aware of the fact that they have latent abilities. Neither will their parents or anyone else for that matter. This means no prophetic dreams, strange incidents or any inklings about it. Think of it as the best kept secret ever. What this RP will not be about is a superpowers school or a war between regular humans and those with abilities.
