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. ^-^

Personality: shy at first, but once she gets to know someone she sticks closely to them. she if often quiet and by herself. she hums alot.
Bio: when her parents realized that she could read minds they first thought it was just a quincidence. but when she started to move things with her mind. she parents thought she was possesed and checked her into Ravendale refuge
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.
Bio: TBD (cop-out :))
(this ok? Or powers to vauge?)
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.
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.
((OK> Thanks! :-D))
Joshi sat on her bed, her short legs hanging ove rthe edge, not touching the floor, but swinging. She glanced up at the clock, it was a cordless clock, immpossible to break or take off the wall, anotehr measure so they didn't hurt themselve. It was almost 08:30, Joshi was struggling to remember what signifigance that time was, she was hungry, it made it harder to think. Her clock went by military time becuase it was easier to remember, it went from 01:00-24:00. She looked at her socked feet, she was in her pajamas, hadn't even thought of changing yet.
Levi was prowling around his room, waiting to be let out, he was on all fours and was pacing, the room was small, too small for him, it felt like a cage...it was a cage. He hated cages, he wanted out! Levi jumped at the door and slammed his weight into it, trying to break it.
((Mind if I join? It's a little late, but...))
((Oh, sorry. :-P))
The door opened and an orderly enetered, JOshi looked up and smiled slightly at her. She looked at her name tag, it said, Winnie.
"Hi Winnie." Joshi said softly. WInnie looked her upa dn down,
"You're still in your PJs." she satted. Joshi looked down, her PJs were given to her by the Refuge becuase she hadn't had any, they were black sweatpants and a long sleeved button up gray and black verticle striped shirt. On her feet were white socks. She jumped off her bead, her hair was disheveled.
"I forgotto change." she explained,
"You can change later, it's time to eat." WInnie said adn she led Joshi out of the room.
((I'm better with guys anyways. I am one, after all.))
((Real quick, what advantage would correlate with dissociative identity?))
The door opened to what Levi thought of as his cave or cell adn an oderly stood there,
"Levi, stand up." the orderly siad, Levi growled, he didn't want to stand! Hs remained squatted. The orderly brought some others in and they forced Levi to his feet,
"Levi you have to stand or you can't eat." they siad calmly as Levi struggled and fought against them, growlinga dn snapping his teeth.
((I'll be unoriginal and steal Honor's idea XD By the way, I generally can't post on the weekends. Or after school))
Name: Dmitri Flint
Appearance: Dmitri looks about as average and plain as you can imagine. His hair is a simply chocolate color, cut short so he never gets too hot. His eyes are close-set and brown like his hair. Dmitri tops out at 5'10", and he measures in at 160 pounds on the mark. Dmitri usually has a rather unassuming look about him at all times, as if wishing he could disappear into the background. His complexion is rather dark, suggesting a Hispanic parentage
Illness: Dissociative Identity Disorder
Advantage: Can shapeshift into any of the other personalities
Personality: Which one? Wait, bad joke... Dmitri is a very quiet, unassuming young man. He doesn't have much of an opinion about anything normally. However, he does enjoy the element of surprise, and he likes a trick every now and then, usually shapeshifting into a personality that looks far older, for instance. He's not exactly a friend maker. get him one-on-one, and he will talk to you, but good luck getting him to talk outside of that environment.
Evangaline was beginning to shuffle slowly down the hallway, having finally gotten herself dressed. She had to shake her clothes for five minutes straight to make CERTAIN the lack of spiders and rats, and even then she was slow to put the clothes on her all too vulnerable body. However, this painstaking process did end up making her hungry enough to override her fears of choking and poisoning. And of course, the ever-present danger of what lay outiside her room....
Joshi walked down the halls in her PJs, there were other Refugees here, they were fully dressed though. Joshi put her hands in the pockets of her sweatpants and walked along side WInnie the Orderly. WInnie didn't talk to her, none of the oderlies did unless it wa sto remind her of something. Theyw ere almost at the cafeteria, Joshi couldn't remembered what meal theyw ere going to, but she hope dthe food was good.
Levi's shoulders were slumped and his hands hung limply at his sides as he was a third pushed, a third dragged, and a thrid walked down the hall towards the mess hall. His clothes were a set of torn jeans and a dark brown, yelow, and tan plaid polo, he reached up to fiddle with the button his polo, he hated this.
((might i join? I can put a skellie together))
Name: Remus Jetsun
Appearance: A tall, slender fellow, Remus stands 6ft 3in tall.
Advantage: Has super-hearing and telekinesis
Personality: Very moody and witty. Remus is unstable and has slighty destructive thoughts.
Bio: Parents thought he was a child of Satan. They left him at the Institute after he "accidently" killed his nurse during a regular check-up.
((sorry ill fix.[check now]))
Joshi was sat down and her food was put in front of her. It was waffles, plain waffles with a side of canned fruit, some rubbery scrambled eggs that had bits of bacon and green peppers in them, and a glass of milk. Joshi poked at her food first before she tried it, it tasted slightly bland, but she was hungry so she kept eating it.
Levi was forced to sit and his food was placed before him. HE frowned, it looked like factory food, he didn't want that stuff it was poison for hiM! He satrted to pick the bacon bit out of his eggs and eat them, but didn't touch anything else.
Joshi looked up at the person who sat across from her, a girl who seemed to be talking to herslf,
"I-I'm sorry..." murmured Joshi when the girl said something about shutting up. She put the nasty rubbery eggs in her mouth and swallowed, making a face, they were greasy too!
Levi picke dhis fork up adn studied, it, it could be a nice weap...the fork was snatched from his hand and his food taken away to be replaced with baby food and a spoon.
"Levi, if you keep acting like you want to hurt someone, you're going to keep eating this." the derly said. All I did was pick up and study the fork... Levi said frowning at the mush, no meat.
