The influences for this roleplay were, quite obviously: Gossip Girl, the It Girl series, The Clique novels most of us females read in middle school, Boys Over Flowers, Hana Yori Dango, rich people and their issues, reality television shows, MSN plots with Has, and my brain just generally being crazy. We are a unique-character-accepting roleplay, so if you're interested in some good old rich person kookiness, I suggest you pull up a chair, read along, and then consider joining~

I am a twenty year old female University student. I'm presently attending FSU in Florida (go Noles) and am majoring in history. I am a full time student, so that can take me away from gaia sometimes, but chances are I'll be lurking a lot of times to accept your applications and answer your questions and stuff. I'm Japanese-Korean, though I don't speak either language. I like watching Doctor Who, My Little Pony (shush waifu), reading, writing fanfiction, roleplaying, and photography. Has is my waifu and Jin is my braintwin so don't mess with either of them~ Okay? Good.
                                                          ( ABOUT HAS Oh, what is going on?~ I'm Has (you really don't need to know my full name), or better known as Deconstruct Le Tales. Saku has appointed me co-owner because I was one of the reasons why she made this roleplay in the first place (you're welcome). I'm a twenty year old female attending one of the 23 CSU colleges in California under a Pre-Nursing major. Good luck figuring out which school I go to.
                                                          Because I'm a full-time student and I'll be applying to the program next Fall term, I will probably disappear often so that I can pass my final two science pre-requisite courses with an A. More fun facts about me is that I'm Filipino-American (but I can sort of speak Tagalog and such), I'm a hardcore Big Bang Theory fan, and when I'm not working on posts I'm sleeping a lot. Also David So is my ghetto spirit animal.

(ie: don't put nudity on your tumblr, because it links back to gaia, gaia links to tumblr etc. even if you view it as "well tumblr allows it," it's still technically going to get us on trouble via gaia because the link is available on gaia publicly. just thought i'd put that out there.)

                                                          ( GRAMMAR & SYNTAX the content of your posts should be in the english language and should be written with relatively proper spelling and grammar. i strongly encourage the use of complex and compound sentences within posts. to those users that submit samples using primarily simple sentences, below-level syntax, and, frankly, posts that i can not understand - my apologies, but i'll have to deny you.
                                                          ( LAYOUTS your posts should be nicely decorated. to those of you that do not posess photoshop (i can see you gnawing at your nails now), do not worry. you can either purchase graphics or, should you not have the gold for that (graphics can get to be quite pricy), make a very simple layout. what do i mean by simple? i mean: a rectangle shaped image that is hq, cropped nicely so the picture isn't stretched, and situated at either the top or the side of your post. the image should be plain, because MS paint editing or photobucket editing (and other online editing platforms such as flickr, picmonkey, etc) make images look tacky. likewise, about coding. if you are the sort of person who can't code or doesn't like coding, then don't. just shove an image at the top of your post and maybe your character's name in big text and you're done. i'd rather see something plain and simple like that as opposed to coding that is horribly unattractive.

(saku is very squash-happy today). stealing basically implies that you took graphics, coding, characters, or ideas from this thread without first receiving permission and crediting-to the owner.
                                                          ( SEXUAL CONTENT gaia strictly prohibits sexual content in all of it's forms. this means that, while your characters can get intimate, we do not want to read about it. once the clothes come off, skip the frick over it. this rule also pertains to tumblr, no having your characters cyber or whatever it's called these days ... and don't post naked pictures / imagery to your blog. common sense should also dictate that you don't include nude pictures in your graphics. i guess swimsuits and undies are okay to a degree, but really, do you think the gaia moderators are going to let you get away with your having your characters boobies hang out in a graphic? get real.
                                                          ( LAYOUTS post layouts should not include anything unsightly, glittery, flashy, or of the icon variety (maybe one icon is okay, but 3 or 4 [especially those that dont' pertain to your character]) is really stupid.
                                                          ( OTHER MATURE THEMES do not include excessive drug use in your posts. these characters are supposed to be rich, so i highly doubt they'll sit around all day and smoke pot (nate and chuck were kind of the exception, but they didn't do it all the time).
                                                          ( CURSING do not include content in your posts that is 80 percent cursewords. a few f-bombs or other similar words of the profane-nature are acceptable, but if you use too many it gets to be a little ridiculous.
                                                          ( POST CONSTRUCTION i'm going to be frank with you, if you post a really long paragraph with no breaks in it (when there should clearly be several breaks as it changes subject) then nobody will read that paragraph. if they don't read that paragraph, they'll probably stop reading your entire post. use paragraph breaks, they're beautiful things.
                                                          ( FONT SIZE all posts should be in font size 11. yes, you heard me, font size 11. nothing below, nothing above. my eyes are getting worse as time goes on, and honestly size 10 is just starting to get bothersome. if you want me, and most of the other participants, to actually read your post then keep it in size 11. are we clear on that?

                                                          ( FONT SIZE all posts should be in font size 11. yes, you heard me, font size 11. nothing below, nothing above. my eyes are getting worse as time goes on, and honestly size 10 is just starting to get bothersome. if you want me, and most of the other participants, to actually read your post then keep it in size 11. are we clear on that?
                                                          ( NATIONALITY & HOMOSEXUALITY while i will be very accepting of different races and sexualities, i do have to create some limits. once we receive a few too many homosexual males (bisexual included, as well) i will make restrictions and start requiring straight males. the same applies to asians. i am accepting two asians for every ten characters. what does that mean? well, within the first ten characters, two can be asian and the other eight have to be of another nationality. once we've already accquired our two asians, you have to wait until we get eight more characters of a different nationlity before you can create another asian character (i will be somewhat lenient on this rule after the roleplay first opens up. but if we immediately get 309q348320q834 asians, i'll start enforcing this restriction)
                                                          ( INDIE MODELS have . some . common . sense . about . looks. scroll down and read the plot, now scroll back up, now read the plot again, now scroll back up. what did you get from reading the plot? this roleplay is about rich people living in new york. bingo! what am i getting at with this? this roleplay is not the place for those scenie weenie, emo, indie, hipster kids ... or whatever the hell it is you want to be called now. in short: if they look like a sheepdog racoon hybrid, have a piercing in a strange place, look like they belong in a coffee shop, have a strange hair color, etc etc i will not accept your model. this is a rich-b***h oriented roleplay and characters should appear as such. i am accepting a few poorer characters, but, i would still like to stay away from indie kids. no brookelle bones, no alexandre evans, no kiki kannibal or ... any of those other people with the really stupid names. if you even try to apply with one of those types of models, i will probably proceed in puking all over you. 8D PLEASANT, RIGHT?
                                                          ( MODEL AGE continuing on the subject of models, they should all look their age. i am accepting characters between the age of fifteen and eighteen, no younger and no older. therefore, you should use people who can pass for being between the age of fifteen and eighteen. if they have an excess amount of facial hair, chances are i won't believe they're within that age range. if they have crows feet, same thing applies. on the other hand, i don't care if you use musicians, actors, supermodels, bloggers, shop models, internet celebrities, yourself, your next door neighbor, your second cousin twice removed, or what have you - as long as they look the part and are reasonably attractive, i'll accept you.
                                                          ( CHARACTER AMOUNT you are permitted to take on as many characters as your little heart desires! however, once i see you start to lag on posting, i will assume it's because you've got too much on your plate and will then start asking you to drop characters until you can handle them again. and because things always seem to end up being a taco fest, should you be the sort that plays multiple characters i ask that you keep it at a 2 female to 1 male ratio. this means that, while you can play as many male characters as you want, once you've taken 2 female characters you must take a male as your third before you can apply for anothe female. simple, right? i thought so.
                                                          ( CHARACTER TYPES just making a brief commentary on the definition of "rich characters." these characters are the sons and daughters of the worlds elite, design them as such. i don't want them to be the child of a top model, actor, popstar, or television personality. these characters should all be the offspring of top businessmen / women. kapeesh? good, i'm glad we came to an understanding.

                                                      We have all heard the stories of those that live and play in the Upper East Side of New York City: rich, beautiful, admired. To most people on the outside, it seems as if the Upper East Side is where the most elite people go to live, the place where any good socialite needs to have residence. That is where they are wrong. Let me direct the location of this story far away from the Upper East Side and focus your attention on Westchester, New York. It's labeled as a town, though a pretty sizeable one at that. It's got a reasonable amount of restaurants, a mall, a shopping district, and is situated exactly an hour and fifteen minutes north-east of New York City. On first description, Westchester seems pretty unremarkable. Oh, did I forget to mention that Westchester is home to some of the nations most wealthy individuals? Ah, I see I've now caught your attention.

                                                      While it has some substantially poorer areas, the better part of Westchester is dominated by large mansions, ginormous ranches, and acres of land owned by New York's own millionaires and billionaires. The amount of money in the bank accounts of some of these families could make even Blair Waldorf herself faint from too many zeros. Yes, the residents of Westchester are very privileged, meaning that there are a lot of rich and spoiled kids to entertain oneself with.

                                                      As all good roleplays do, this story takes place around a school setting. Two schools, to be specific. The first upper class prepatory school to ever be erected in Westchester was Briarwood Academy for Boys. It is rumored to have been built in the 1800s and served as an educational facility for the wealthy male residents of Westchester in the early days. Some years later, in what was said to be the late 1800s, Octavian Country Day School (shortened to OCD) was built some ways away as the school for the wealthy female students of Westchester. For many years, these two schools educated rich young minds and sent them off into the world to become even more successful than their parents.

                                                      Tragedy struck in the year 2005, though, when Briarwood Academy burned down in a tragic fire that was spectulated to be arson. At a loss for what to do until their school was rebuilt, the students are Briarwood were fortunate enough when the staff and students of OCD were willing enough to open their doors and classrooms to the Briarwood Boys. A year passed and the rebuild of Briarwood was predicted to take longer than initially expected. The students, however, decided that they quite liked the arrangement as it was. It was the first time ever that the schools had been co-ed, and the members of both genders were in favor of this arrangement because it meant they didn't have to sneak over to the other school to visit their respected boyfriends or girlfriends. After much debate between the headmaster, staff, and the parents that funded the schools it was decided that the schools would stay combined.

                                                      A large scale campus expansion was started on the grounds of OCD, and in the year 2007 the expansion and rennovation was finished. Five new buildings and sport field had been added to the school, and at a commemoration ceremony the school was officially rennamed Briarwood-Octavian Country Day School. Of course, this is a mouthful, so students continued to refer to it as OCD or - in some cases - BO.

                                                      The year is now 2013 and there is an ever energetic and ever interesting crowd of rich males and females attending OCD. Their lives are pretty simple: wake up, go to school, come home, go shopping, go to a party or two, and generally not give a care in the world. Sounds like the life, right?

                                                      Oh, I almost forgot to mention, after the re-vamp in 2007, OCD started offering scholarships to those less fortunate students living in Westchester. Students with significant athletc, artistic, or academic accomplishments could attend the school free of charge. This news shocked the students of OCD big time, and since their entrance into OCD, the scholarship students have become subject of bullying and ridicule. Now, in 2013, the scholarship students seem to be at the end of every joke as it is standard for the rich kids to hate them for no particular reason. Of course, there are some exceptions to this rule, but that is very few exceptions.

                                                      I hope you enjoy your stay at Westchester, because things certainly are far from boring.

                                                          not all is as it seems in westchester, new york. while it may seem as if the populars of ocd are in control of the student body, it's actually quite the opposite. if anyone is deemed as being the person "in control" it would have to be gossip girl. who is gossip girl, you might be asking? well, that's a simple question to answer, yet a difficult one at the same time. gossip girl is an anonymous gossip blogger that arose in westchester roughly five years ago, when our current seniors were starting the eighth grade. it was thanks to gossip girl posting a scandalous rumor about the queen-bee sleeping with a member of the mathletes, a message which somehow forwarded itself to everyone's phone, that successfully dethroned the queen and allowed for her beta to win prom queen that year. since her arrival at westchester she's succeeded in winning herself a place in everyone's hearts, even if they won't necessarily admit to it.

                                                          she posts gossip, rumors, secrets, and scandals about the rich kids in westchester and exposes them for what they really are. nothing seems to be hidden from her, as it appears as if she has eyes everywhere. while she focuses on all of the schools in the westchester area, and even somewhat beyond, her biggest focus seems to be on the students of OCD which leads people to believe that she may be a student there. nobody knows who she is, and while some have tried to figure out who she is, none have succeeded in discovering the true identity of this gossip queen. all students at OCD follow gossip girl, finding it interesting to read the things she has to say about their friends and enemies - though getting offended when she talks about them.

                                                          while OCD has it's fair share of populars, it's own queen and king, and it's own ring of bitches, gossip girl is definitely the driving force behind all the drama at OCD - and the school wouldn't be the same without her.

                                                          ( AM I REQUIRED TO MAKE A TUMBLR FOR MY CHARACTER? no, you are not required to make a tumblr for your character. creating a tumblr for your character is purely optional, and you should only do so if you have the time to actively manage it. i would strongly recommend creating a tumblr for at least one of your characters, but i will not force you to do so. as long as you keep up with gossip girl on your own time you should be fine.
                                                          ( WHAT IS REQUIRED OF MY TUMBLR? should you choose to create a tumblr for your character, we do have a few requirements. one: you are required to follow both the directory and gossip girls tumblr. the directory will be used to post roleplay related announcements and reminders, as well as keeping track of the characters in the roleplay and their respected tumblrs. gossip girl will, obviously, be used to post gossip. two: you are required to include 'ocd' somewhere in the url (it's the school name). so your characters url could look something like ocd.gossip-girl.tumblr.com or gossip-girl.ocd.tumblr.com, whichever you prefer. three: you are required to link back to the roleplay and the directory somewhere on the front page of your characters tumblr. four: you are required to post a disclaimer on the front page of your characters tumblr stating that it is merely a roleplay so as to avoid getting into any sort of trouble. five: follow the roleplay rules, gaia terms of service, and tumblr terms of service on tumblr at all times or else i will be forced to remove you from the roleplay.
                                                          ( WHAT IF I FAIL TO MEET THE ABOVE REQUIREMENTS? i won't post your tumblr link and will continue to correct you until you meet all the above requirements.
                                                          ( WHAT IS A BLAST? a blast is when gossip girl makes a post on her website. this can include a picture, a piece of gossip, a rumor, etc. when she makes a blast, it is assumed that it is immediately forwarded to everyone's phone in some manner - so once she makes a blast, every character partaking in the roleplay should then know about whatever it is she just posted.
                                                          ( WHERE DOES THE INFORMATION FOR THE BLASTS COME FROM? we will take the information to make the blasts from a number of places: one place is the rumors section which will be part of everyone's profile - but we will only use this section if we run out of tips to use, our most reliable source for blast information will be tips - which is information sent in by characters in the roleplay to gossip girl regarding gossip and the going-ons. (in other words, you have to send gossip girl tips)
                                                          ( HOW DO I SEND TIPS TO GOSSIP GIRL? visit gossip girls tumblr and click on the link saying 'send tips.' this will direct you to a page with a full explanation on how to send them in and a form to fill out. please fill out the form and submit it as directed to make the tip as easy to understand as possible.

                                                          classes at OCD operate on a block schedule system, meaning that each class lasts for 100 minutes with lunch between second and third block. OCD's classes are also organized in a somewhat college type system, meaning that they'll have one set of classes in the fall semester (september to early january) and then they'll switch to a different set of classes for spring semester (january to june). this ends up with them having taken a total of eight classes throughout the year, but only having taken four at a time.

                                                          first and third block classes should be an academic class, while second and fourth block classes should be electives. after you've submitted your profile, please visit this class list and decide upon which courses you want for your character to take. after you decide, you are required to visit this thread and fill out the schedule skeleton so we all know what classes your character is taking so you can plot according to your schedule.
