                          STORY
                            x Why You Are Here



                          " Black Rock Boarding School is a last resort for many of the students who end up there. The boys who attend the school come from a variety of backgrounds, be it a background full of criminal activity, abuse, self harm, or substance abuse. Black Rock hopes to reform these rowdy, misbehaved boys into well behaved young gentlemen by providing them with a home and education as well as counseling for their problems. Tucked away in a lush, green environment, Black Rock offers a calming atmosphere to help young men feel relaxed as they better themselves through their studies."





                          RULES
                            x There Has To Be Some




                          ( LITERACY/POSTING )
                          xxxxxThis is not an Advanced Lit. RP. With that said, I still have expectations. Good, solid paragraphs are to be used as well as proper grammar and all that jazz. If I feel you are not posting enough, I will send you a polite PM encouraging you to put more in each post. If you cannot do that, I hold the right to ask you to withdraw from the roleplay. :c Fancy layouts for your posts are not a requirement but are always welcome and highly encouraged! Try to put a little effort into it at least. I'm not layout wizard myself, but they just look nice to have. At the very least include like a name and picture?

                          Also, I know that with school, everyone is a little busy. Let's keep that in mind as we head into the roleplay. Try to post in a timely fashion, alert people ( including me! ) if you will be gone for a while. And of course, try to be understanding to those who do have a lot of school stuff going on. I'm sure we will all get busy at some point during this.
                          ( ROMANCE&VIOLENCE )
                          xxxxx Keep in mind the Gaia rules... Time skip when things get too hot and heavy... Don't kill anyone. While these kids might be kinda messed up, none of them are going to go around murdering. Fighting is totally fine (it's encouraged because RP drama is fun... Romance is thus encouraged as well...) just you know... Nothing totally obscene. Oh yeah, and since there are both students and teachers available to play, relationships between them is fine. There will be no discrimination over any type of relationship, nothing is off limits. Also keep in mind this is a normal human RP, so no like... wizard battles, please.
                          ( CHARACTERS )
                          xxxxxYou are more than welcome to have multiple characters ( especially if one or more is a teacher! ) Just be sure you can control all of them in a timely fashion without neglecting one or letting post quality drop because of the numbers. Real pictures are to be used for character models, please. And try to be creative! Sure, the kids at this school are pretty messed up, but not everyone has to be a super emo with black eyeliner and bleach streaks in their hair et cetera et cetera... Yeah! Creativity! Also, as mentioned, all the characters will be human. No neko/vampire/toaster/demons or anything, por favor.
                          ( GENERAL )
                          xxxxxBe nice to everyone... We're all trying to have a fun roleplaying time here. If you have an issue with someone, do not fight in the thread. Do not even fight in the OOC thread, please! :c Try PM'ing them to workout the issue, and I can always serve as a mediator. I in turn will be respectful to everyone here and will handle any conflicts that may arise in such a fashion.
                          ( APPLYING )
                          xxxxx Send me the little reserve thing either before or with your profile. It will be posted on the front page and used to show who is in which dorm. Dorms will be randomly assigned. Once again, use real photos for characters, anime photos will not be accepted. Send Reserves titled as "Reserve", and profiles titled with "Black Rock." Please also include a link to where I can see a sample of your writing. I'm not trying to be difficult, I just want a good group of RP'ers who are more or less on the same level! c:
                          ( "SCHOOL RULES" )
                          xxxxxNo smoking of any kind, teachers included. No alcohol consumption by those not of age. Attend all classes. Students are to be back in their rooms by 11pm on weeknights and 1am on weekends. Trips into town are allowed if you are deemed able to conduct yourself in an appropriate manner. Students must sign out and back in when making trips into town. The privilege can always be revoked, it is not a right. Use respectful language. Fighting is taken very seriously. The first time will get you a warning, punishment will vary and increase after that. Being caught breaking rules requires a therapy session to talk about your actions, as well as other punishment as seen fit.

The creators of the school like to say that being among nature is soothing and will help in their students' progress. Many of the kids like to say that they just couldn't find anywhere else to put them, so the run down old buildings had do do. While many of the buildings are rather old, made of stone and crawling he ivy, they have since been updated on the inside, giving the students modern comforts they're more used to. Students are free to wander and explore the campus, taking walks on one of the many paths through the woods or taking a swim in one of the small bodies of water that dot the place. Students are also allowed to go into town to visit the shops and cafes but are to stay away from the bars.

Pulling at the tight collar of the buttoned up shirt red shirt Spyk wore, he fidgeted in his seat. Looking around his classroom he sighed. When exactly did he end up in slacks and a dress shirt? Leaning back in his seat he picked at his still standing mohawk, before finally undoing the top two buttons on his shirt. For the first time that day he actually breathed. Looking back to his desk he frowned at the mountain of paperwork before him. The amount of paperwork it took just to start the year was ridiculous.

He sighed and stood up, grabbing a pile of his paper work and his smokes. Pen in hand he left his room and locked the door mumbling to himself as he read over the paper. "Worthless..." he mumbled as he turned a corner. Walking at a brisk pace he spotted a rubbish bin at the end of the hall. Looking about he saw no one.

Still walking he turned the corner next to the bin and, "tripped" sending the pile of papers right into said bin. "OH no...." He said as he steadied himself from his fall. "My paperwork seems to have been misplaced into a rubbish bin. Whatever will i do?" He asked no one in particular. Looking down he shrugged, the paper was gone and now he was happy. Continuing on his walk he went out into the court yard and lit a smoke.

Okay, enough of pacing around his dorm room. Kim's suitcases were laid out on his bed, unzipped and open, but other than that fairly untouched. Inside, everything was neatly folded. So many sweaters and plain shirts and jeans... Kim didn't have the most adventurous wardrobe, but it looked good enough on him. Simple could work sometimes. But he didn't much like unpacking. He was still entertaining this notion that this wasn't permanen, he didn't belong at this school, and he wasn't staying. So why we he unpack everything if he was just going to be leaving? Kim knew it was a stupid delusion, but it was momentarily making him feel a little better.

Kim moved to his desk, unzipping the smallest pouch on the backpack that was laying on the surface, and pulled out his phone. No messages. Not a surprise. But that wasn't really his purpose of grabbing the cellphone, he just wanted to check the time. Right around 11:30. He considered this for a while, looking over to the currently empty other half of the room. If he went to the cafeteria, he had a better chance of avoiding whoever his roommate was for a while longer. But that wasn't the main reason for heading to the cafeteria now. It was still early enough where not a lot of people would be in there yet. And the less people who were there, the less people noticed him picking but not really consuming much of his food. He had to admit to himself that he at least needed to put something in him. He had a small dinner the night before with his parents, wanting to put on a good show on his last night with them. But the little he had eaten hadn't stayed in him very long after his parents went to bed. Now Kim was definitely feeling the hollowness of his stomach, the dull ache in his head.

He shrugged out of the sweater he was wearing, it not really being needed for the weather outside. Kim grabbed his keys, wallet, and cellphone, stuffing them all into his pockets after locking the door behind him. The walk to the cafeteria was a fairly short one, and a gentle breeze surrounded him as he walked. He squinted up at the sky. Cloudy. He didn't mind, he just didn't want to potentially get rained on. He entered the cafeteria where, much to his delight, he was right about not many students or teachers currently being present. He picked a few things from the lines, and then moved to swipe his ID card, a few meal credits being taken off. A handy system he thought. If he was going to be checked on how much he went to the cafeteria, it wouldn't show how much he ate, just that he went. Pleased, Kim headed over to a vacant table.

                                          He knew that getting any of the boys in his class to let go, let go and explore themselves was going to be an extraordinary challenge. What he taught wasn't about the world beyond high school. Kids came in, sat down and came to their own conclusions before the chalk dust had settled on the blackboard. What he taught didn't strike fear or respect into their eyes: they saw a waste of time, something to ignore or abuse or float through.

                                          "S'alright, though, isn't it De? They can sass all they like, but I'll show them. Color up their world and cut through the black 'n white 'n all the boundaries they've got... Open their eyes... uh, maybe." Conversation usually required two partners whom could, well, speak. For an art teacher with a small studio filled with two dimensional faces, his cat was the obvious choice.

                                          Reese was accustomed to the solitary lifestyle and was unashamed that he would ramble for hours at a stump-tailed feline. Certainly Degas, his cat, didn't mind all the attention, greedy little monster that he was. It helped to talk, sometimes. Especially when his worries and doubts crept up on him from time to time. No man could be truly, one hundred percent confident in themselves, at least not twenty-four seven, and Reese did prefer meditating on his problems in verbal tangents.

                                          At the moment, his issues were set squarely before him to consider in his free time. "Eleven thirty... Too early for lunch. Hm. What do you think, De?" Midnight blue eyes switched from the innards of his fridge to the wriggling white-brown-and-black mottled feline rolling on the little table he used for meals. Degas didn't pause in his aerobic twisting and turning on his back, but a loud purr followed Reese's question. Nodding, Reese attacked the contents of his refrigerator with a soft "ah ha, I thought so too."

                                          In a few short minutes, he had put together a Greek salad to go via tubberware, with a side of pita chips and a can of iced black tea. His "snack" assembled, the lithe young artist darted around his apartment in search of a number of key belongings. Thick, almost wavy coal black hair jumped around his brow as he filled a brown leather satchel with what he wanted, stuffing the foodstuff in alongside pencils and bits of erasers. He paused to scratch the bobtail cat across the chest before then heading out.

                                          The day outside was gray and mild, not cold but not hot either. A hazy day to reflect the milling, uncertain student body and their myriads of unspoken troubles. Or, rather, it was just going to rain at some point and everyone would feel the relief of it. That was one of his favorite types of days: the wet smell of dirt and leaves just after rainfall was tremendously familiar and dear to his heart. It reminded him of spring afternoons spent on a riverbank, dripping and laughing at the tadpoles he'd vainly try catching. He was not dressed for any sort of wet weather, however. Pale gray jeans, stretched white over bony knees, and a chunky dark blue cowl sweater was neither professional nor fit for going out to town. It was, however, comfortable, especially since he wore a raggedy pair of gray chucks that had seen better days.

                                          There was a terrific old bridge over the creek that ran past the school, out behind the library building. Since it was closer to the lake and, better yet, close to the cafeteria, Reese trooped in its direction. Several minutes later, he arrived, breathing in the smell of damp and moss and undergrowth as he sat himself at the base of a corner, back against the adjoining hand-rail posts. Tucking his feet up under himself and the leather satchel propped at his side, Reese pulled out his salad and drink, gaze on the trickling brook as he popped the lid on his before-lunch lunch.

Pᴀss Tʜᴇ Aᴄᴇ.

If the sun was out his eyes wouldn't be lasting very long, but since it was cloudy his eyes didn't have to take to much damage from it. The last time he looked at a clock it was probably around ten am. But plenty of time has passed for he knew it could be noon. The blonde boy stood there in front of the school. The height of it was slightly intimidating, especially for the reason he was here for. He couldn't argue with his mother about since he knew he was going to lose it. It's to bad his friend didn't get blamed and he parents didn't give two shits. Why did his mother have to worry so much?

A gust of wind pushed strands of hair into his face. The rough wind was cold against any exposed skin he had. He regrets not putting on a jacket now. In his arms he had one bag and then another draped over his shoulder. His free hand pushed against the mail door, the metal cold to the touch. Small bumps ran up his arms along with a small shiver running down his back. His didn't have to good of a feeling about this school.

Will he even make friends? He's only had one friend his entire life and they met when they were small. It was easier to make friends at such a young age, but at this age it's not simple. He knew it was kind of pathetic of himself. All these thoughts running through his head and he already found himself walking down the dorm hallway. His deep blue orb-like eyes searched for a number. Five was a simple number to memorize and he had pretty good memory. Once his eyes locked on target he pulled out a key from his pocket. He extended his hand near the door so he could unlock it, Once doing so he walked in, taking the first bed that was closest.

He threw his bags on the ground and threw himself upon the bed. He didn't even bother closing his room door. His face disappeared into the pillow. He could fall asleep right now, but he knew his dorm mate would be here any minute. He had to at least greet himself, right? He could really use a drink right now. . .and possibly a smoke. He was stressing way to hard right now.

    "Hi...How are you...I'm fine...Ah! You're so stupid why do you even try?!"

    Hazel heavy lidded eyes observed the enormous grounds with anxious awe. The greenery entangled amongst the walls weaving throughout the building had him clenching his fists. He wanted to tear it all down! He could already see the uncleanliness with all those roots and bugs festering about the school."You're so mean, that is probably why nobody wants to talk to you..." Gah, he didn't mean it that way. He couldn't comprehend why people adored plants. They reminded him of the overgrown weeds growing in the side of his parents double wide. A picture he clearly did not want to remember. Slowly taking a deep breath the tall teen took a tentative step forward. He would have enjoyed this gloomy day if it weren't for his predicament.

    Oh no, never mind, he wouldn't be able to do this, on second thought he could pass. He already knew what they were going to do do him. They were going to try to get him converse. Something he desperately needed help with. "You're such a inept buffoon. Turn around you pansy! No one is going to like you." His own sombre tune lulled in his brain until he stepped forward again.

    He could already feel his brain splitting into two. A raging head ache grew when he started to push past his nagging voice. It took an eternity to reach the door to lead inside the dorm hall. Clammy hands wrapped around the cool metal briskly opening it. He scuttled in hesitantly glancing about hoping nobody saw him. Taking in yet another anxious breath he dragged his suit case along with a clank.

    "You can't do this, you will never get better. You're worthless...Pathetic...Disgusting..." shuddering he bit his lower lip in order to cease his wailing thoughts. In order to not dwell on his precautions he decided to fix his grey hoody. In his ripped jean pockets, accidentally ripped by his clumsiness, he pulled out a red cloth caressing it gently. In some way he hoped his sister would be found. The letters all washed away still stared pitifully up at him. They were nothing more then markings. Chicken scrawl that only he could remember. "If you actually watched her none of this would have happened you idiot." Shaking the clearly agitating thoughts away he steered himself towards his dorm room.

    It didn't take too long, and thankfully he didn't observe anyone coming around. Not that he wouldn't have minded. Well, honestly, it would have been nice to see someone. He could always try to converse with them..."Try? Please, even if you did try they wouldn't like you anyway. You're too repulsive to talk to." Clenching his fist until the nails were digging into his palm he pushed through all the hurt words to coming upon his room. Number five. Room number five, he liked five, five was a good number. A very nice-

    There was something, very, very wrong with this picture. After hyping himself up about seeing people he was staring at one now laying in their bed seeming to be asleep. Giles froze, his mouth slack like a fish out of water. Hazel eyes swiveled back and forth towards the bed the guy occupied that was too close to his own. He started to shake again, his stomach tying into several knots. What should he do? Should he say hello? What if the guy doesn't like him? What if he does something stupid? What if he-

    His racing thoughts stopped when he dropped his back pack. A loud smack against the floor jolted the anxious teen into leaving his bags by the door as he began to stride down the hallway. He can't do this, he really can't! "You're so pitiful, the guy probably thought you were a moron." Just as he was about to break out into a run. He paused, fidgeting in his own skin he glanced over his shoulder back to the room. He couldn't hurt, maybe he could just, try. Ambling back towards his room he halted outside the door to stand back in his own spot. He could feel his lungs constricting at the sheer thought of conversing with this guy. He stood there stock still hoping that the guy didn't think he was stupid for his outburst.
