This RP is based on a novel I am currently working on. I thought this might be a fun way to test out my idea. :)
Ravendale Refuge. A home for mentally unstable teenagers. Tucked away in a remote corner United States, they promise a warm, peaceful, healthy environment and qualified staff to help facilitate the healing of the ‘special’ cases they are so famous for taking on. There’s just one thing.
Teens that get shipped off there never come back.
A little explaining about the ‘special’ part in ‘special’ cases: The kids who go to Refuge have more than just mental illness.They have....advantages. (Super power sounds so cliche...) For example, a pyromaniac would have pyrotechnic abilities. Be creative about the power and the illness. :)
1. Please. Be. Dedicated. I cannot stress this enough. If you can’t post at least once a day, don’t sign up. If you’re going to go a few days or so without posting, please leave notice of some kind.
2. I would like to be able to read your posts. Please be literate. Typos are okay, we all make mistakes. Text language isn’t.
3. Play nice, please. We’re all friends here. :)
Feel free to ask questions, I shall answer as best as I can. ^-^
((I shall post my skellie now. ^-^))

She has bright red hair that she keeps in a very short, rather shaggy pixie cut. Her eyes are a bright blue. She usually wears a plain, dark, baggy t-shirt and too big jeans.
Illness: Multiple Personality Disorder
Advantage: Shannon can make multiples of herself if she focuses hard enough. They each have their own personality and thought process, but all of her memories and her appearance.
Personality: When Shannon is herself, she is very quiet and brooding. Some would say dark, others would say shy. She likes to hang back, away from others generally. Shannon has four other personalities, but they are TBD.

Name: Evangeline Weslie
Appearance: shoulder-length dirty blonde hair, bad complexion, brown fleck-with-green eyes, pudgy, short, long fingernails
Illness: Panic Disorder (panic attacks)
Advantage: Super speed and strength, but only when she's panicing or concentrating very hard (which hardly ever happens because of her constant anxiety)
Personality: Jumpy, shy, always stressed out. Feels guilty after having panic attacks, sulks most of the day. Very set in her ways, as she is wary of trying new things. She loves the friends she is lucky enough to make, but thwarts any crushes she gets at all costs.

(this ok? Or powers to vauge?)
((Oops, I forgot to post that...:P Age range is 15-19. Is that okay?))
((No, there is no uniform besides no jewelry, no belts, no metal things that could be used for self harm. And I did put appearance in the skellie...))
Name: Joshi Frank
Age: Just turned 15
Disorder: Chronic Amnesia
Advantage: Joshi can't remember much of her past, she has flashes now and then though. What her 'power' is that she takes on other people's memories around her. She has to touch the person to take on their memories though, and those memories stay with her.
Looks: Her hair is curly and black, it's in a short pixie cut that barely hangs to the nape of her neck and brushes over her ears and forehead. Her skin is a warm golden tan and is pretty scarred up, especially on the hands, arms, legs, and neck. Her eyes are a deep brown, but look almost black, they are slightly almond shaped. She is small for her age, tiny is what you'd call her, her frame is delicate and she's short. Joshi seems to go unnoticed a lot and can easily be over looked. Joshi always has a lanyard around her neck that has her name age and room number on it in case she forgets.
Personality: Joshi's personality goes with her looks, she quiet and prefers to not be noticed. Joshi's afraid people will think she's stupid because she rarely can remember things about herself and forgets simple things at times like her name, or her room number, just really easy things to remember. Joshi isn't the brightest, but she's sympathetic, and seems to always want to help and please people. She likes to make people happy and feel better. Joshi is slightly childish and almost innocent. She doesn't like loud noises, or when people yell at her, she seems to shrink up and want to hide when people yell at her.
Bio: Joshi's parents discovered her memory problems at an early age when she wasn't learning things well and couldn't remember simple things. They'd punish her when she forgot things, which is where she got her scars from. Of course she doesn’t really remember any of this except flashes here and there. When Joshi was 10 her parents gave up on her and abandoned her, she stayed at a shelter until a social worker found her and sent her to the Refuge when she was 12.
((Awesome! ^-^ Now if only we could get some guys...))
((Yeah, go ahead. ^-^ I'll bring my other charrie in too. :) ))
Name: Michael "Mikey" Rose
Appearance: Mikey is average height, thin and bony. His skin is pale from never being outdoors and he has dark circles around his wide brown eyes. His hair is dark brown, shaggy and messy, a little curly. It goes down his neck, not quite to his shoulders. He always seems to be wearing dark blue pajamas and worn out slippers. He has scars up and down his arms and on his face from scratching and clawing at himself.
Advantage: Mikey's delusions and hallucinations are actually scrambled up bits and pieces of the future and past. Of course, he can't actually tell what's future and what's past, they're so mixed up and distorted.
Personality: Mikey is a bit of a wild one. It's hard to tell anything with him. One moment, he'll be quietly sitting in the corner talking to himself with his notebook and crayons (he's not allowed to use anything with a dangerous point) and the next minute having a screaming fit and trying to scratch his own eyes out. But when he's calm, he's very quiet, childlike. He can speak coherently and is actually very intelligent. Just...messed up.
Bio: Mikey has been at Refuge for as long as he can remember. But that's always hard to tell with him. His thoughts and memories are jumbled up. But he's been there since he was eleven.
Name: Levi Jake
Advantage: When he is acting like an animal, though he doesn't transform he can communicate with animals.
Looks: Levi looks kind of wild, his hair is black and spiked, it’s kind of messy and looks slightly greasy because he has too be forced to take showers. He has pale skin and looks slightly gaunt. He's average height if not a bit tall, but his shoulders slump slightly because he prefers to walk on all fours instead of upright like a man. He is kind of thin because he doesn't want to eat like a normal human being and the workers don't let him eat unless he acts 'human'. He will have lucid times and will act human though, it's about 50/50, a random toss up each day on how he will act. His eyes are an ice blue with hints of dark green, they are normal eyes but have a wild look in them. His fingers nails are short clipped because of regulations but are dirty. Levi could be handsome if he cleaned up a bit.
Personality: Levi's wild. He doesn't respect authority and has to be regularly restrained. HE can be quiet animalistic and violent espeically in one of his 'moods. Though he does have very quick mood swings, his mood swings are uncontrolled and it's impossible to tell when they come. He isn't ever what you'd call innocent and gentle but he can be friendly and nice at times. He doesn’t really have friends though because he doesn’t trust people that much. He feels 'free' in his animal state and is kind of awkward when he's not acting like an animal. He's very tough too.
Bio: He's been here most of his life and doens't talk about what happened when he wans't here. It;s mostly TBD.
((Awesome! :D Just a couple more people. ^-^And no more girl charries, sorry if that breaks anyone's heart....))

((C'mon...You know you want to...There are cookies in your future if you join...*enticing smile*))
