there are about 6 people from the interest check we are waiting on; i'm going to a friend's for a week on monday where i'll still have access to the internet and can type stuff up from my phone since i pre-made all the templates i'll need, but i would prefer to have completed the application stage by then.

@Sweven7@VolcanicLaval@Martian@ChaoticLaw@CollectorOfMyst@Hayazo — any word on your characters/interest in the roleplay? just a quick line to say whether you're working on somebody or you no longer wish to participate. ideally need to know by the end of sunday (bst) so i can push things forward

i will also say it's best to leave the trivia/relations discussion until after applications end. i don't want people to feel they've wasted effort if they don't get accepted.

Honestly, I'm a little bit conflicted. I like the concept, but have a loose grip on where exactly the story is gonna go beyond this. I have a character idea that I like, but I'm a little bit overwhelmed by the character sheet's raw code and I'm not very good with using actual people as faceclaims. And, uh, the fact that so many other people are applying is also a little overwhelming - I'm a bit out of practice, you see 😅

i'm a sucker for keeping things under wraps but i discussed the structure of the first act a little with odin here, beyond that i genuinely can't say because while i have several ideas for the second act it is both a) quite a while away and b) dependent solely on what happens in the first act, the decisions people make, seeing what different ideas are thought up as a group, etc. prisk has offered to help those struggling with the code (if i don't micromanage every facet of a project i will die) and i feel having existing applications provides a good basis for brainstorming and inspiration! don't be afraid to drop your toe in, push comes to shove if you get a sheet out you have a foundation to build on in the future to help get back in the swing of things.

If you want I can parse your raw plaintext into code for you but honestly the way I did it -- though I do use BBCode on RPG a lot so I'm not easily intimidated by it -- was just go down line by line and fill in what's needed. :-)

@Odin@nodogs I'll be okay with the BBCode, it's not the first extremely complicated-looking character sheet I've ever filled out, but like I said - I'm out of practice.

I'm going to bow out of this as there is already a lot of people with interesting characters already applied. Hope you guys have fun with this and maybe I'll see you in another roleplay.

i feel that we have gotten a solid cast of characters in the past few days and have heard back from enough of the others to feel confident in saying that applications are now closed. austin and i have been through the sheets, talked about what works and what doesn't, who fits in where and have come to the following decisions:

@fledermaus
@Mao Mao
@Odin
@Eleven
@banjoanjo
@Sweven7
@Prisk
&
@davefromdiscord are all accepted.

these were some pretty tough decisions to make and we did actually raise the cap by 2 from an originally planned 6 admissions as we saw more and more solid sheets roll in. i would like to thank everyone who applied, and state that this was really more of who we wanted more than who we didn't want. if we could accept everybody we would, and if you would like to be contacted in the future in case spots free up and we can find a way of introducing new characters then please let me know.

To get the character relations thing started, I've gone through everyone's sheets to see if there's something to pick up on. Feel free to just turn these down—they're just initial ideas to break the ice. If you have something completely different in mind for my character, I'm all ears.

LUCAS@Mao Mao
I'm thinking that Hanna's boyfriend at the time, Jonathan Robson, "leaked" the dating profile. His typical jock buddies probably had a field day with that. Hanna would've had some kind of issue with Jonathan doing it, but never said anything. It would definitely be something she remembers.

CONNOR@Sweven7
Well, the jock-sports type was the primary dating target of the 'mean girls', so perhaps there is a connection here unless I've completely misunderstood Connor as a character. If the connection wasn't directly with Hanna, then maybe through her boyfriend at the time, who would've been part of that crowd and sports types.

FREYA@Eleven
Hanna definitely knows of Freya, somehow. Perhaps even after Delton? Seeing as both of them live in NY. I don't know where to start the connection, though. There is quite a few strings to use here, especially this one "Although she often hung around her elitist clique...". I'm thinking Hanna and her buddies belong to that title.

BENJAMIN@Odin
Ben probably flew under Hanna's radar, yes? Unless you want a specific connection with her.

MEIR@Salsa Verde
I'm thinking that Meir was a target to Hanna's buddies. It seems pretty evident. But, Hanna was definitely the most passive of them, so she probably didn't bully Meir directly, but she didn't stop it either.

GENESIS@fledermaus
Genny and Hanna probably know each other through house parties. It seems like the most likely places that they've sort of met, or rather Hanna taking note of Genny's partying habits. That vodka barf on the quarterback would've put her on Hanna's radar for sure—as a fun thing, though.

JENNA@davefromdiscord
Maybe that bitch Jenna messed up was one of Hanna's buddies? Jennifer Elkmann or Madeleine Otten, the 'mean girls'. That baiting tactic they used on Jenna sounds like something one of these two would do. Anyway, this might be something, if you're up for it.

SARA@banjoanjo
Sara was probably a target to Hanna's buddies. Bathroom encounters? Hanna would probably have picked up on the dyke rumor and attacked it, being quite insecure about her own sexuality at the time.

JACK@nodogs
My creative juice ran out. Help me out here. Hanna would've been pretty apathetic herself, so maybe her and Jack rolled their eyes out at the same shit in class or student gatherings?

I'm terribly sorry to do this to you on such short notice, but over the past week I've been absolutely swamped with new work to do, which has given me a bit of a wake-up call - regretfully, I think I'll have to bail. I would prefer to get this out of the way now and avoid kneecapping any story beats rather than make it a bigger inconvenience later. The concept looks fascinating and I hate to drop out so early, but, that said, feel free to replace or remove Jenna in the cast list.

I can put in a good word for @udonoodles as we joined this RP together and he helped me develop Jenna's power, but I fully understand that I can't really ask for bias to play a part in decision making, so I'll leave it up to you.

Sorry again, and I wish you and this RP all the best!

no worries, i get that things are volatile in real life when it comes to free time. i'll be holding off posting the first ic until i've made a decision on who else to bring in and if they're still available, should not be longer than a day. i hope we'll get to write together someday!

jack probably wouldn't have minded talking to hanna during classes (especially the boring ones) but would've withheld some judgement about the company she kept. maybe after the house party jack was more noticeably absent from their conversations, being secretive about her own sexuality at the time and not wanting the association. whenever hanna was with her friends jack would've probably avoided her.
