The Staff Room.

The Staff Room.

St Marks Academy, Massachusetts. A school renowned across the country, known for it's high results with most, if not all alumni ending up at an ivy league university, it's excellent teaching staff and it's wealth. A school without a tarnished reputation... well until now. It was reported that the body of a senior student was found on in the schools expansive library on Monday the 6th of February. It was revealed later that it was the body of senior student Alexander Montgomery (the youngest son of the Montgomery empire). No further information has been found yet as investigations are under way. It has been said that this is very complicated matter and the investigations are expansive. The public is asked to leave the Montgomery family alone while they are grieving.
 

This roleplay focuses on the lives off the teaching staff of St Marks Academy and their messy dramatic lives , as well as their role in the murder of Alexander Montgomery.
 

º RULES º
 
✸ All your normal rp rules, no godmodding , no text talk (unless it is an actual text in which case i guess go for it.), no god modding, no drama outside of the group - treat everyone with respect.

✸ This is a story roleplay. You can write in whatever POV you prefer. I am not expecting novel length stories - just a decent length.

✸ No perfect characters. Write interesting characters who are flawed and complex - but most of all make a character that you are inspired and want to write for.

✸ Okay so i am not a really pushy mod when it comes to activity. I would prefer atleast a story a month but obviously more is better.

✸That been said if you can't write for a long peroid or just feel you have to drop out off the group please let me know.

✸I am not really strict on types of Faceclaim's you can use, models, actors /actresses, bloggers, musicians - whatever it's upto you as long as it is an age appropriate choice . I prefer no site models though!

✸ Diversity in model choices is encouraged.

✸Please comment and read each other's stories! i know how much effort everyone put's in so the least we can do is read each others work.

✸ This group will deal with more adult situations so i would ask you to put appropriate warnings for your stories and if you really feel uncomfortable such situations don't join.

Just the Audition

Just the Audition

"Just like the top of a muffin, creating a character is the best part of a roleplay."-me, Ingle after a glass of wine and certain Seinfeld episode.
 
What is Just the Audition you ask? Well it's just what it sounds like! Every week there will be a contest where you create a new unique character and every week there will be a new winner that will take over the group. Each winner gets to become the mod for a week, create a new contest, then pick a winner who will then be the new mod.
What beautiful cycle, am I right?
 
Think of the variety of characters you will create! One week you could be making a Hogwarts student, then the next week you could be make a fashion blogger or a mafia boss. The possibilities are endless and there is no pressure or obligation to write for event prompts.

::Mod Guidelines::
-Being a mod is purely based on the honor system. It would be so lame to abuse that power.
----When you've picked your winner, you make the winner a mod, then leave the group and rejoin so you are no longer a mod and can join in the fun again.
----Don't get into a cycle where you pick your friends and they pick you, that would be lame and would ruin the fun.
-Be creative with your contest idea. Think of a roleplay that you would actually want to be in and roll with it.
----You are in charge of what audition format you want to use, but please no story requirements and do not force the members to use a template.
----Make a sample audition before you make a contest and make it the example set in the contest description box.
----Contests are one week and one week only.
-Please don't change anything in this description box, except for...
-Sign your name in the list below to show you were the hbic for a little bit!

Models of Color

Models of Color

Polyvore has been around for years, yet set after set after set, I see white models and/or white-passing models. Let's help make a change on this site and give talented models of color, especially brown and Black models, a chance to shine! Diversify the sea of white models on this site to reflect the real world and how it should be. Spread sets filled with models of color and clip them to the site so that others can follow along and join the movement.
 
**SUPPORT MY CAMPAIGN: MORE DIVERSITY ON POLYVORE**
 
This group is high-fashion specific, with models of color! Any gender and sexuality is welcome, as long as they are models of color! If you ever want to expand your knowledge, feel free to send me a message and I can help add to your list of models of color!
