The basis of this story is six sixteen year old kids (3 guys 3 girls) are rejected from a performing arts sschool, but when they get home from their auditions, they have all recieved a letter that says that they have been accepted. They all go to the school, and start discovering each other and themselves. None of them know eachother at the start, but they are all placed in the same acting class.
1) David- brooding and depressed. Everybody worries about him. Best friends with Adam.
2) Adam- Light hearted and flamboyant, Adam harbors a deep secret. ((You make it up!)) TAKEN
3) Jake: Silly and always grinning, Jake seems to have a retort or snide remark for everything.
4) Lizz: Typical rich kid, but confused and unsure of herself on the inside.
5) Kate: Withdrawn and sad. Best friends with Lizz.
6) Emily: Bubbly and loved by the entire group.
Of course, these are all just guidelines and ideas of what I'd like to see. I already have Adam, but the rest of the characters are needed. Skellies should look like this:
Thanks, and let's make this great!
[Can I have Kate?]
((Can I have Liz?))
((Of course! and don't worry about being too ded. As long as you post about three times a day, we should be good! Post skellie whenever you have time! And sorry, but i probably won't be able to post until after 2:30.))
((Yes to both Ttracey and Believe! :)))
((could I take Jake?))
(( I canged My mind. Could I take David?))
((Definitely! Post your skellie whenever you can.))

[Sorry, auto correction on Lizz. I meant Lizz not Lizzie.]
((Can I be Emily?))
((awesome, yeah that works! sorry, I won't be able to post friday nights and saturday during the day. Absolutely, TessaRose! :)))
Name: Adam Koral
Physical Appearance: Towering at a solid six-foot-five, Adam, is big in all directions. At first glance, many would think he was a football player, but a second look erases all thought of that. Always wearing button down shirts with cardigans, Adam is fashionable and artistic. He generally wears light colored clothes, as they bring out his light brown hair and grey eyes. He fumbles around with whatever he can find- pens, paper clips, etc, and is never seen without a pair of fingerless gloves.
Personality: Extremely flamboyant, Adam is fun loving and easy to be around. However, unknown by most of his friends, he suffers from a mild form of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, causing him to suddenly erupt into sarcastic and cynical comments. He loves his friends, but can't help hating himself.
History: Adam had a very distressing childhood. His father was incarcerated for three years when he was four years old, leaving his mother with him and his older brother. When his father came back, Adam's home was a constant battleground between his parents. Hurt and bewildered, Adam turned to his brother for guidance, but was pushed away. Forced to attend a private school from the ages 8-13, Adam was bullied and harassed by his classmates. He hated his school and his life, and at the tender age of 13, tried to commit suicide by throwing himself in front ofa car. The attempt failed, and Adam emerged a new person. He switched to a public, and forged a new life. His withdrawn introvert-edness dissapeared completely, giving a way to an outward extrovert who can only be described as: fabulous. He is an acotr and singer with brilliant prospects, and has been playing the piano for eleven years.
Name: Emily Aytrone
Physical appearance: She's petite and skinny, with slightly olive-toned skin. Her hair is long, naturally wavy, and brown. The features that draws the most attention to her are her eyes, they're blue with a brown ring around each iris. She's very girly. often wearing dresses, skirts, lace tops, and eye-catching colors.
Personality: Creative, bubbly, and sweet, she's a lot of fun to be around. She's been told she's funny, but she doesn't believe it. She's a bit argumentative and totally stubborn, so she's not afraid to give her opinion. Her friends are her life, and she strives to make them happy and keep them smiling.
History: She's lived with her Uncle Matt and Aunt Karen since middle school; when her older brother, Armand, and his girlfriend, Andy, were killed in a car accident. Emily's family was devasted, and out of the fear she would break, they sent her away from the small town she'd nearly grown up in. Instead of falling into a deep state of depression, as initially it had been thought, Emily sort of became more outgoing in memory of her brother. He had been very well-liked, and she wanted to carry on that memory of him.
She loves debate, writing, and the occaisional karaoke session. However, her biggest joy is making someone smile...and winning an argument. She's a bit obsessed when it comes finding the perfect outfit as well.
((Awesome! I love her.))
((Thank you :)))
Name: Elizabeth (Lizz) Carter
Physical Appearance: Lizz has a willowy figure - tall and a little too skinny. Her hair is chocolate brown and falls in mad curls to half way down her chest. She wears glasses for reading but hates them, usually leaving them off. Her eyes are an intense grey-green, often looking faraway or as if she has a million things on her mind. Lizz doesn't choose her own clothes, because she's been told far too many times that she doesn't know what looks good. She is constantly criticises her appearance, which is a habit she picked up off her family.
Personality: Lizz is polite and well spoken, and tries to avoid conflict. She seems to have everything she could want and can act spoilt without realising it, but inside she's desperately lonely. Of all her friends from her last school, she knows that none of them would stay with her if she wasn't rich. The thing she loves most is acting, because it allows her to become someone else. Lizz doesn't like taking risks and always sticks to the rules because she knows she'll only end up messing things up.
History: Lizz's father is the owner of a multi-national company, so her family lives a life of luxury. She's had it drummed into her head by her mother that she needs to be perfect in order to succeed at anything, but she's not sure she knows what perfect is. She feels under a lot of pressure from her family, particularly her older brother and sister, who are brilliant at everything.
((Awesome! Great character. ...Since we don't seem to have any takers, any of you guys want to do Jake , too?))
((...Anybody want Jake?))
((Sure I'll do Jake. Why not?))
