DON'T TRUST EVERYTHING YOU SEE. — W
Established in 1975, Norfolk Private Academy has been a leader in elite boarding schools since its opening. Hidden away in the country right by the small town of Norfolk, the isolated campus has worked hard to produce outstanding, diligent, and talented students with its remarkable scholars joining the team of teachers. According to its reputation, it always succeeds. The students who attend enjoy great dorm facilities, exciting after school activities, and of course, incredible education. Graduates of Norfolk Private Academy live up to the reputation, keeping it well and strong with each graduating class going on to study at the best universities in the world. But everyone, every place, has secrets they want to hide and keep hidden. Secrets so dark that reputations would be completely ruined if they were brought to light. Gorgeous Greta Hilton. You’re just the poster girl for beauty, right? WRONG. What you all should know is that the gorgeous Greta Hilton you know today was never as beautiful as she now looks. I guess it’s true what they say about money — if you have it, you can do anything. And Greta surely used her daddy’s money to her advantage to give her a whole new body and face. Don’t believe me? Well I’ve got an old yearbook picture right here. VIEW ATTACHMENT I guess you should think twice before calling someone else ugly, Greta. Clearly you needed to go back to your roots — just make sure you don’t get caught out in the sun. You might melt. Till next time. And believe me, there will be a next time. — W Some time during the middle of the summer break, there was buzz going around about a new blog that had surfaced. Exitus Acta Probat is the title, and it loosely translates to ‘the result justifies the deed’. And that is exactly what the mysterious W intends for the blog. Only one post is up so far, but it was enough to get gorgeous Greta Hilton to transfer out of the school. She couldn’t face the backlash she would get once the senior year began, and there are a lot of opinions about the whole situation. Did Greta deserve it for being a hypocrite? Did the result really justify the deed? More importantly, will that be the same for every other person that will become a target in this blog? And who’s next? The school year is only just beginning, and everyone is definitely in for a troublesome time…
[ 01 ] A big thanks to @christy for gming with me and helping out! Her word counts too, as well as mine. [ 02 ] Please follow all RPNation rules. Respect everybody, no erotic content (fade to black) or extreme gore. Be mature with sensitive matters. There may also be quite a few mature themes involved such as violence, drugs and alcohol. [ 03 ] This is NOT a first-come, first-serve roleplay. @christy and myself will be accepting six characters who we think will be a great addition to the storyline. [ 04 ] On the next tab, you will see a list of eight character roles, each with individual secrets. We have chosen those specific secrets for each role to help create flawed characters and develop the story. Along with that, we will also be assigning secrets between the characters to help make forming relationships much easier. That being said W will also be played by somebody, but their identity will be hidden. [ 05 ] You must post at least once or twice a week in the in-character thread - this may change depending on the level of activity once the roleplay has begun but the pace will be relaxed; we understand if something comes up in real! [ 06 ] This is a semi literate roleplay. Therefore, we expect to see detail in posts - a word count of approximately 500 words (including dialogue and detail) is required. [ 07 ] It is also required that you have discord in order to participate in the out of character chat and stay up to date with important information. Once the characters have been accepted, I will send out the invitation link by private message. [ 08 ] If you have any questions, please don't be afraid to ask and let us know which role has sparked your interest!
[ the golden boy - open ]He's the golden boy. The family's pride and joy, the school's sports star and easily one of the richest people at school. He lives out his days by flaunting his father’s money and behaving like he owns the school, which, with the amount of money his family has, may as well be true. There’s a lot hiding behind that pretty face though, like the fact that he's attracted to men and not women, which is clearly contrary to what other people believe. God forbid anyone ever finds out because image is everything, isn't it? Especially for the most popular guy at school. He just hopes nobody saw him kiss that one guy at a party recently.
[ the prima donna - open ]She's the darling of her family, spoiled to no end, and clearly in the belief that she'll get whatever she wants as long as she asks or makes it clear that she wants it. There’s no secret that the princess comes from one of the richest families in the UK. What most people don’t know is that most, if not all of that money, was made illegally. Aside from this, because she feels like she's getting nowhere with a crush of hers, she's lately been interested in exploring her sexuality and spending more time with girls. It's all just for fun, though, right? Nobody needs to know. She just needs to find someone who'll keep her secret.
[ the broken bird - open ]He's your typical charmer. The sweetheart, the boy next door and the son of the headmaster, who certainly has a way with words. Something the broken bird has been hiding from everyone that he knows, however, is that he’s a junkie, and this has only been a growing problem, ever since he witnessed his mother’s death due to prolonged abuse from his father. The whole traumatic event has also left him with some depression, but as far as anyone else is concerned, he’s a normal guy who loves to party — who may just have a growing crush on someone he knows.
[ the loose canon - @christy ]She's not just a pretty face. Though she's the sister of the golden boy, she's the opposite of him, in front of everyone. She seems innocent, but there's clearly more hidden away behind that facade. She parties, she drinks and she hooks people up with narcotics. Nobody would ever suspect her of being the type to deal drugs, let alone be good at it. She’s always been something of an adrenaline junkie but she’s veering into dangerous territory and it’s only a matter of time before she’s caught — especially when her top customer is her friend who is hiding his addiction by saying the drugs are for someone else.
[ the lost cause - open ]He's never fit in with the rich crowd because he's anything but. He grew up in a rough neighbourhood, probably from a broken family, and he's always been struggling for money. He's a hard worker though, which is how he got a scholarship to one of the most prestigious schools in the country, but he's definitely hiding some questionable things he's done in the past for money. He should technically be treading lightly, so as to not risk losing his scholarship, but he needs money, so now he's befriending a student on the down low to get into the drug dealing business.
[ the diva - @constellation ]Just like her best friend, the prima donna, she's pretty and she's a trendsetter. You'll rarely see her repeating outfits, and she wears only the best that money can buy. Everyone looks up to her when it comes to fashion, but things behind the scenes aren't as pretty as she makes her life out to be. Her family, once among the richer ones, has slowly been suffering financially. Unable to accept losing her position as the school's primary trendsetter, she's taken to shoplifting, so she can continue to wear expensive clothes and be a fashion role model. It's only a matter of time before someone finds out.
[ the ace - open ]He's snarky and sarcastic and thinks he's better than everyone else. He's also easily one of the smartest people in the school, but he won't ever actually admit to that. Image is everything to him and his family, and while being smart is something to be proud of, in their school, being smart also means earning nicknames that refer to him as nerdy. So, instead of acknowledging that, he uses his intelligence to sell test answers to other kids on the down-low. Usually, he does this in exchange for money, but he's not opposed to picking up useful pieces of information either. Never know when you might need to resort to blackmail, after all.
[ the vixen - open ]Bashful eyes and luscious lips, she only means to have fun. Her quick mind and charming tongue make it easy for her to compel her fellow classmates. She flirts with who she wishes, and she will not resist anyone who shows interest in her. Hence why she ended up in bed with one of her school teachers. The affair lasted for a while, perhaps the longest fling she's ever had, till it ended very recently for reasons unknown. Ever since, she's gone back to her ways of hooking up with anyone she sets her sights on, though as of late, she's been veering away from men and seeking mainly just the company of women.
