Hello, citizens. Welcome to the Society.
Here in the Society, the Officials choose.
Where you work. Where you live. Who you love. Which school you go to. What you wear.
What you eat. Even when you die.
It is expected that the citizens of the Society live perfect, easy lives, but all is not what it seems in this not-so-perfect world. Especially when there are rebellions.
Map of the Society
The Society is made up of eight major provinces, which includes:
Acadia -- Forested Province
Camas -- Mountainous Province, Military Stations
Central -- Rivered Province, City
Grandia -- Farmland Province
Keya -- Farmland Province
Oria -- Flatland Forested Province, City
Sonoma -- Shoreline Province
Tana -- Mountainous Province, Suburban
There are also the Outer Provinces, which do not have separate names but are always referred to as a whole by the Society.
The Farmlands is basically self-explanatory -- The Farms are in this area.
Types of People
These are the people who live within the Society. They follow all the rules and are genuinely good people. They are the Society's favorite type of people, though they would never admit it. They have a clean record and "perfect" lives. Their life expectancy is eighty. The citizens carry around three tablets or pills -- One green, one blue, one red. At the end of their lives a tissue sample is taken to be preserved so that eventually the Society may bring people back to life.
These are the people who may live in the Society or Outer Provinces. These people are rebels and have been reclassified because of an infraction committed by themselves or their family, basically they or their family have broken the rules of the Society, and they must be relocated and reclassified. They have broken rules and have a lower life expectancy than citizens. But these people keep secrets, know how to create, know how to write. They have minds of their own, and are rebels.. They may or may not live with their families -- It depends on the infraction. No tablets or tissue sample for these people. They may be orphans.
These are the people who do not live in the Society. At least, not any more. They live for the most part in the Carving, a place just outside the Outer Provinces. These people have committed crimes. They have much lower life expectancies than citizens and even aberrations. The Society does not care for these people. Little is known about them.
The Rising Citizens
These are the people who are part of the Rising, a rebel group, while living in the Society. Of course, these people are treated like normal citizens, since no one knows they are part of the Rising. They have the same privileges as the true citizens, but they are aware of the Rising, as not everyone knows it exists. They are loyal to the Rising but pretend to lead normal lives in the Society. You can say they are like double agents.
Breaking the rules of the Society.
A warning for bending the rules of the Society. The next step is an Infraction.
One who oversees and controls different things.
Plain black or brown clothes that are worn daily by the people within the Society.
The day a baby is born. This is the only birthday the baby's parents will be allowed to celebrate. This is also the day which their names are given along with a small multicolored tablet to immunize the baby from all illnesses.
The Banquet where sixteen-year-old boys and girls from all across the Province gather in fancy suits and dresses in City Hall to be presented with their Match or life partner. The Officials will call the names in alphabetical order and will present to them their Match, whose picture will be shown on the grand port. They will receive a silver box with a microcard which includes their Match's information. A once in a life time opportunity, these people are allowed to choose the color and shape of their garments -- dresses for girls, suits for boys.
A small card which includes ones' personal information, such as their date of birth, favorite activities, favorite color, family, names, future careers, favorite memories and of course their Matching status.
Kind of like a giant touch screen television, installed in every home. It is used solely for news and communications.
Like a port, but smaller, and it is also used to transfer data, take notes and review microcards. It also has a tracking device to track one if they are lost or have escaped.
Like a funeral, this banquet is held at the age of eighty, when a person is about to pass. They are offered the choice to choose what they want to eat, and any requests they may have are fulfilled.
A tablet green in color that calms one down.
A tablet blue in color that slows you down until it eventually kills you unless someone comes to save you. But the citizens of the Society do not know this. They think that the blue tablet will save you in times of need.
A tablet red in color that makes you forget all that took place in the past twelve hours.
Tasteless, mass-produced meals that are given to all who live in the Society. It is packed with the sufficient amount of nutrients and vitamins that each person needs. There are barcodes on the back of the foilware meals personalized for each person.

Birthday: May 1st
*Also if you are unsure of one aspect of your character, please tell me so when you do make up your mind, we will know that you simply needed more time! And yes, I am well aware that my character description is Sasha Pieterse. She is amazing and I chose her on purpose! :) Plus if you'd like to add a second character later please take your time and message me when you're ready to add one if the RP has already started.
~Will add a second character later.
*Edit: I am unsure of how to make those little square character icons like in the SOE rp. So if anyone can tell me how, I'd love to make them! Thanks!

1. Only citizens can make part of the rising or the aberrations and anomalies as well?
2. If your character is older than 16 ( like 20-30 ) and a citizen it means they are married?
1. Anyone can be a part of the Rising! The Rising is for everyone.
2. Only citizens are allowed to get married. Citizens get married at 21 years old. They celebrate something called a "Marriage Contract."
~Can't wait to get this started!
hmmm...I have another question: Can my character not be from the Rising but wants to?
I'm torn between a character who's 20 and is about to get married and doesn't want to. It's a possibility that if someone else wants, her 'match' wouldn't want to get married either. They could be friends or something and want to join the rising because of it.
A girl who's 16 and about to be declared a match and doesn't like where this is going but sees no way out of it. That is unless she meets someone from the Rising or from the Aberrations.
What to do ... what to do.
Of course! Anything is possible! ~

Okay so I have this thought and this is what she's going to look in the future. It may be a few days, or maybe a few weeks in to the rp. I don't know yet but this is her future look:

Wow! Nice characters! Also, you can choose a province! I just didn't choose one because I wasn't sure which one she'd be living in. ~
Updated my pic up there :) I think I won't choose a province just yet. I have absolutely no idea what I want or what my character wants.
Q: Are Abberations up for Match Banquets?

It's a beautiful day in Panama city. I walk along the beach as I come home from school and I look out into the distance and see the horizon glowing in the distance. The evening sun is beautiful; It is red and orange as it sets, burning through the clouds as the brightest thing in the sky. I smile to myself and think of the other provinces; How they must be so unfortunate to not have the beautiful shorelines and sceneries we have here in Sonoma. Out of all the provinces, this one is the only one that has a beach. We're lucky, I think to myself, but of course the Society doesn't believe in luck. I walk along the beach barefoot, and stop short. Something glimmers in the sand. Of course I want to know what it is. So I crouch down and brush away some sand from the object. It's shiny and silver. One of my favorite colors. I pick it up and recognize the object immediately. My father had told me about it when he was working in Central. It's a tiara. It was fit for a queen. I can see my reflection in it's shininess. I smile as I place it on my head and continue home, feeling like a queen.
(It's the same time in all the provinces, where most people return from work or school.)
(( Oh god >.< I always get mixed up between Jack and Alex. Not the people though, the name. Jack, Alex, and Max. Even when they don't look anything like each other for some reason I get mixed up with those names only ))
I just came back from school to home. Mom and dad were waiting with our meals on the table. I quickly changed and went to sit down with them. "How was your day sweetie?" Mom asked.
"Pretty good. Climbed a few trees on the way back and scraped my knee from the bark again."
"Navy!" Mom scolded.
"I'm sorryyy" I said.
"It's okay darling. You know she has the urge to when she's nervous." Dad said to mom. "You excited?" He then said turning to me.
I bounced my head from side to side as I put food in my mouth. The Match Banquet was coming up and I didn't know how to feel about it. I could see the fun and the scary but mostly the scary. Overall...I felt, nervous.
I climbed to the top of the tallest tree and looked at all the twinkling lights that were starting to show in the city. There were times that I wished I could be there living that life instead of this pathetic one. But then again, we're to ourselves and we have more freedom than those idiots who let people control them. I think the good part about there is that...hmm...can't think of anything.
I never lived there so maybe that's why I fantasize about it so much. Maybe one day. There's a change coming. I can sense it. Hopefully soon though.
(( Changed a few things in my character post ))

I walked quietly home. Yesterday was the ...worst and most tiring day in my life. The day... Whatever...it's not like anything can change. After taking a quick shower, I headed to the dining room where my parents had already been seated. Quietly, I sat down and my father said, "You may begin." I took a quick glance at mom. Ber eyes were red...she had been crying but of course she kept a composed pose as she ate gracefully...The matching ceremony was coming nearer.. And to be honest, I wasn't looking forward to it.
I press another paint covered hand against the wall and my piece is finished. I stand back and grin at the paint covered wall and muse about how i was probably going to get moved again. I wonder about the Match Banquet coming up. It was pretty easy to sneak into and the only time anyone was allowed to do anything fun. I smile as i whistle and go to see if I had a suit.
