I have this group RP idea that I tried to start yearssss ago. But I quickly realized I have no idea how to GM. So I am hoping there is someone out there who would be willing to GM this, hopefully someone with experience. You can literally take this interest check and repost it/tweak it however you want. I'd consider CO-GMing but know that I would be a complete noob. So check it over, if you are interested in GMing either PM me or tag me here.
And if you are interested in just partaking in the RP, post here and if we can make it work, we would let you know!
Here is my OG interest check: (PS, I'd probably be the "Brain" character)
Dear Mr. Vernon:
We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong, but we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us... In the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain... ...and an athlete... ...and a basket case... ...a princess... ...and a criminal.
Does that answer your question?
Sincerely yours, The Breakfast Club.
The Breakfast Club: 2022
At 7:00 AM on a cool, brisk Saturday, five students from Shermer High School in Shermer, Illinois attend an all day detention. Each student did the crime and now they have to do the time. As seniors, all five students may be aware of each other, but does that make them friends? There will be fights, arguments, laughs, and craziness to ensue. They may not have entered as friends, but will they leave as them? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is essentially a group slice of life roleplay that centers around 5 teenagers navigating the confusing world of hormones and school. There is awkwardness, flirting, temptation, anger and more. Let's see where the journey takes us!
Rules 1. Please be 18+. I know this sucks, but there could be mature themes. 2. This is high casual-advanced, so between 3-5 detailed paragraphs on average. Grammar and spelling has to be decent, but by no means perfect. Quality over quantity everytime. 3. Be active. If you have to be gone for a period of time, just let us know. 4. Have fun!
Now in terms of the characters, I am not going to be restrictive to the point that you have to play the same gender/sexuality as the characters in the movie. And same goes with any sort of romance, there can be a variety in the relationships that form. I just want you to really stick to the "clique" that your character is in and work from that.
1. Basket Case
-This character is the oddball, the one that no one quite understands. She/he/they can be mute at first like in the movie if you want, or they can be a bit more vocal with their thoughts. Just really encompass the quirky behavior and play with the fact that they are like a caterpillar wanting to just spread their wings.
-This character is the queen bee of the school, most popular, everyone knows her. I feel like this character should stay a female, but if you want to play it as a male/non-binary then go ahead! This character will be disliked by a majority of the other characters because she/he/they represent everything they all hate: beauty, money and popularity... but she/he/they wants to seen for so much more than her/his/their looks.
-This character is extremely smart and dorky. She/he/they does not know how to fail and strives for perfection. Their focus on their studies makes them the target of teasing and ridicule, yet if anyone is desperate for an answer then she/he/they is the one everyone turns to. All this character wants is to be noticed for something other than their brain.
-This is the popular boy/girl/person, the jock, the star of the school. Whether she/he/they is the captain of the football team or any other sport, the school's spirit is determined by this person. The pressure to perform every week can be overwhelming at times and can hinder this character's ability to show who they truly are.
-The bad boy/girl/person of the school, he/she/they is no stranger to detention. Their home life is probably not the best and as a result their frustrations are taken out at school. Instead of trying to get help, this character just pulls away from people constantly, but really has a softness inside that just needs comfort. The hard shell on the outside though will take a lot to be broken.
So if you are interested, please either PM or post below and tag me and include the following character sheet. As the characters are filled, I will edit this post accordingly.
[b]List of Family:[/b]
[b]Reason for being in detention:[/b] (if you want the reason to be kept secret for the plot, then just let me know)
[b]Personality:[/b] 2-3 paragraphs describing how your character is around family, friends and total strangers. What makes them tick or what can put a smile on their face.
[b]Brief Background:[/b] 2-3 paragraphs describing how your character has reached the point in their life where they are now in Saturday detention. Were they always the way they were? Ie was the princess always popular? Did the athlete use to be friends with more nerdy kids? Ask yourself these sort of questions when doing this bit.
[b]Requests for Relationships:[/b] If you have an idea for a romantic interest you want to try, put it here and we can discuss it further in OOC chat.
[b]Appearance:[/b] Use a real life image of a person. When it comes time to actually RP, do take the time to describe your character's outfit, but you don't have to do it here.
I really hope there are a few of you interested. I am excited for this and can't wait to get started! Yay!
Ok I've been in such a funk lately with RPing and can't find the sparks I normally have to try and start something up, so I'm going to give this another try. Again, please don't be upset if it doesn't work out. It is truly a shot in the dark.
