  1. I have lost the earth!
    And the flowers of the earth!
    And the live souls above the earth,
    and you who passed across the light
    and reached
    You! You, who have your own light,
    who are to yourself a presence,
    who need no presence.
    Yet for all your arrogance
    and your glance,


    I tell you this!
    Such loss, is no loss.
    Such terror, such coils and strands and pitfalls
    of blackness, and of
    such terror
    is no loss.
    Hell is no worse than your earth!
    Above the earth,
    hell is no worse!
    No, nor your flowers
    nor your veins of light
    nor your presence,
    a loss!
    A Very Odd Meeting "Oh! Well hello there, my dear friend! I see you have stumbled yourself here, mighty well, then! My name is Mr. McCoy- or, Van, as you would like. Oh, please, don't look so tense! I know exactly why you stumbled here. Are you, by any chance, feeling different from others? Are humans, by any chance, making you feel like freaks or a monsters?"
    "Well, that's because you are one! Your slimy physique, abnormal features, and unsurpassable weirdness is what drove you here, my good fellow! I can tell that you have been hurting, and so have I! Seeing my perplexing partners being discriminated against day in and day out, it brings me to tears."
    "But! That is precisely why this school exists! We have only one strict rule that we live by! Our rule? Absolutely positively NO humans!"
    "We live by this. Our security guards can assure our staff and students that anything with two legs, judging eyes, and a taste for bad sitcoms are NOT allowed by our gates! We have only one simple solution if we catch any human passing into the school!-- We kill them. *Cough* Er, uh, oh! Right, right... Welcome, my new family, to Van McCoy's School for Perplexing Minds and Peculiar Bedfellows!"
    "We have everything a growing student, from the ages of 3 to 30 need! We offer K-through-12 classes, college classes, and more! Come!
    A Very Odd Meeting It is easy and simple to sign up, what are you waiting for? Now that we have the 'welcome-to-school-my-name-is-professor-mccoy' talk out of the way, I'll be taking my leave now to... dispose of some unwanted guests. Happy Studying!"

    Welcome to the thread! Ah, I apologize in advanced, I never actually organized a roleplay like this one before! If you have seen me, you've noticed that I ususally stick to the OneXOne roleplays. I'm here to spread my wings! This is a group roleplay, that I'm allowing some people to join in! I just hope that this will go swimmingly.

    1. Long replies and grammar are a MUST! Minimum of two adult structured paragraphs per reply. Meaning, five or more sentences. I cannot stress my peeve about short replies.
    2. If you are joining, you must be detected! Get involved, talk to others, have conversations! I'm challenging all of you to step out of your shell- Lord know's I am...
    3. We ALL know that some characters can't get along with others. If there is fighting, atleast give eachother a chance. Both of you can get a black eye and lose a tooth, but if someone is god-modding, I'll ask kindly to take it down and get their hands dirty.
    4. WE ALL KNOW that SOME characters get along TOO well with others. If things get steamy, move it or lose it. If anything, cut to black. If not, simply move to your respected Mature forums.
    5. Have fun! This is what this role play is all about!!!
    I will be limiting the group to about, lets say, 5~10+ people. Out of those, there will be some people who play the teachers and the students. A challenge for those who want to play the teacher-- try having your character co-respond with the selected class! The list of classes will be placed HERE:

  5. Reserved for anther character just in case
  6. YESSSSSS!!!!! I am SO excited. I hope more people see the banner!! Thank you, I'll make sure to save two spots for you.
  7. Dude, so like can i use face claims (real people) or do you want anime pictures and stuff ouo?
  8. Just out of interest, does this RP require character sheets, or are they optional?
  9. @Grumpy - I'd like for everyone to have a character sheet, just so others have something to go by for when they talk to one another's characters and so forth.

    @PardonMeSir - Anime, if you would. I just... feel creeped out when I'm playing the RP through my head and I image real people. But, if it's your own picture at all, that's okay.
  10. In such a case, I think you're in the wrong section. JumpIn RPs are RPs that don't require character sheets: you'd probably want this in the Modern Fantasy sign-ups area.

    If you like I can move it for you?
  11. Oh, jeez, I'm sorry to inconvenience you! Now I can tell why you're grumpy. If it wouldn't be too troublesome! I wasn't completely aware-- I've never been on this part of the forums in a long long time.
  12. No biggie. Easily fixed. MOVING THIS THING THE NOO'.
