SIGN-UP THREAD | IN CHARACTER THREAD W A N D E R L U S Tthis is how it once was done ( ♛ ) all the dreamers on the run ! It had been little more than a few months when the protagonists of our story first acknowledged each other's existence. Despite the fact that they attended the same high school, each of them ran in different social circles, and with the school's huge population it did not seem likely that these very diverse teenagers would ever cross paths, much less become friends. But all it took was some vandalism on a desk at school--their first means of communication. They all shared the same table, either by pure coincidence or fate. The first message was a rambling. The next were some sarcastic responses, and then another, and then another--each one written by a different student, at a different time in the day. Friendships were forged and before long, they began to see each other at school, and then outside of it. They talked about what they could never share with anyone else. They shared their hopes, dreams, and secrets; and while some of them might have had clashing personalities or were not particularly taken with each other, the bond of the group as a whole was strong. Not long after they came across a feature article in a magazine about a strip of land nestled in the countryside. It was called Paradise. Talks of a road trip began and preparations were made. Their goal? Find paradise. It didn't matter that it was a vague concept. It didn't matter that they had no real destination. What they truly wanted, deep inside their hearts, was escape from city life. An escape from obligations and reality... if only for a little while. They decided to run away, knowing their parents or guardians would never endorse the journey, supervised or not. There will be some bumps on the road, there will be tears, there will be pain. All they can hope for is to reach their destination before the life they are trying so hard to run away from eventually catches up to them.
