As you may or may not have noticed, things have been dead around here. Us admins decided that it was in the best interest of everyone that we put the rp on an indefinite hiatus. Much like the roleplayers, the admins are also really busy with school and other real life issues. Hopefully, we should be back within two weeks to a month.
While this is the potential end of this roleplay, we are thinking of opening another one in the near future once we’re off hiatus. If you’d like to keep in touch with either of us or have any questions, the ask box on the main is open so you could message us there for contact details (AIM, KIK, another Tumblr account etc.)
As all the characters in the roleplay were OCs, you are free to do whatever you like with them. This includes taking them to another roleplay or using them independently or as a 1x1. We will be leaving the main open for the next day or two in case any of you want to copy and save your characters’ bios for future use.
Thank you for joining us. The roleplay has been around for nearly two months, and we are grateful to have met all of you.

Starting from tomorrow, I’m gonna start cracking down on who still wants to be in the roleplay or not. I just want to see who’s genuinely inactive and who’s just caught up with other stuff in real life such as school or work. After that is done, the follow list and whatnot shall be updated.

We know that now is a tough time with regard to school that is causing everyone to be somewhat inactive. However, simply stating it in the OOC is not really effective. If you would like hiatus or just a few days off, we are asking that you message the main and tell us. That way, we will be informed and be able to keep track.

I’m back and I will do everything I set out to do this weekend. I have a week again till my next exam, so I will do my best to maintain the activity on the main.
Additionally, I would be lenient with activity, but all characters who are past the inactivity allowance (5 days) would either have to message the main or post within the next 24 hours.

Personality

Elijah is a very mild mannered man. He is polite and charming and incredibly respectful. At least, he was before the war. Now that he’s returned from Iraq, he likes to still think he’s that sweet, polite young man, which he is, for the most part, but there is now a darker side that lays inside him. His temper is quick and he gets frustrated with people easily. He sometimes has trouble communicating his feelings and getting others to understand what hes saying. The doctors say that it’s just part of his PTSD, and that with the continued use of his antidepressants and his therapy routine he will be as good as new. Elijah isn’t so sure.

Background

Growing up in the Mason household, it was known that Elijah would go into the Marines. His father had been a Major General in the United States Marine’s before his retirement.  His uncle and cousin were still active members in the reserve. He enlisted at the age of 18  with “encouragement” from his family, especially his father. After just three years of service, 9 months of active duty,  he was honorably discharged. A land mine expolsion, set off by his unit left Elijah with a pretty intense scraphnel injury. His ACL and meniscus were torn and though he’s had numerous surgeries, his knee will never quite be the same. 

Coming back from Iraq, it was hard to get back into the swing of things. His knee surgeries and his PTSD didn’t help. Elijah had to start over, answering the question he never had to before, what do you want to do with your life? He thought back to childhood, his fascination with history and different cultures, but mostly his fascination with Indiana Jones. If he wasn’t able to travel the world with the marine corps then he would become an archaelogist and travel the world that way.  Again deciding to stick with the idea of family loyalty he decided to enroll in his mother’s old univeristy, Stonewick, and earn his degree there.

Thomas Whitmeyer-Weathers | 20 | Sophomore | FC: Jack O'Connell | Delta Upsilon

Hometown: Atlanta, Georgia

Housing: Trent Dorms

Personality

Outwardly, Tom is a very open and confident individual, but his worldview and complexity often astound people when they get closer. Though Tom himself is very privileged and wants for nothing, he is by now an old friend with the idea that this isn’t so for countless others. In many ways Thomas hates the reality of the world around him, believing it to be grossly unfair and filled with suffering. Nevertheless, or perhaps in spite of his problems with the world, Tom is generally a very kind, jocular and progressive person, though he does have a temper in the face of bigotry or when people bring up his own hypocrisy or faults. He is deeply troubled when people don’t see his often radically-leftist views with as much enthusiasm himself, and it makes him feel like he has a problem, as opposed to the other party.

Tom does not acknowledge this, but if one took a very close examination of his person, one might find that he has a huge ego, his altruism done as much for praise as for its own good. He loves flattery and even more than that, adoration and near-worship from his sub-consciously perceived lesser. This is perhaps what drives him, not only in regards to his physical and social image, but also his fervor in righting what he perceives to be the wrongs of the world.

As per the zeitgeist of the age, Tom resorts to drugs, alcohol and sex to deaden his perceptions and problems as much as the next man. He likes to have a good time, and loves the parties and social life of SWU in general. Thomas is, however, deeply conflicted by this fact, and doesn’t like to think about where the irresponsible, excessively-indulgent behavior of Western Society, and SWU in particular, leaves the rest of the world. This internal doubt has prevented him from going too far off the edge and brings him back to his studies and life goals.

Background

 Thomas was the youngest child of an extremely conservative, religious, somewhat bigoted, ‘old money’ family in the suburbs of Atlanta. From a very young age, Thomas rejected his parent’s paradigm, but only inwardly, realizing that they were far too entrenched in their values to ever change, though he did manage to make his two elder sisters somewhat more moderate in leaning. In school, Tom accomplished decent to good grades, excelled in sports, and again, kept his socio-political views to himself. Early on, he managed to become rather popular and respected by both the students and faculty and grew fond of such a position, retaining his status as he grew older.

When the time for college came, Thomas applied only to northern schools, hoping to leave his family and his homeland’s perceived faults behind. He hasn’t exactly cut ties with his family, as he depends on them for their extensive financial support, but has purposely drifted away from them and is now rather distant. Tom initially rejected fraternal organizations, believing them to be an arm of cronyism and impartiality in general, but he realized that they could help him greatly as friends in high places will be useful in the future and equally important, that he was missing out on a lot of fun. He would also be lying to you if he told you that being a member of an important fraternity did not stroke his ego. Tom is majoring in Sociology, as he plans to become something of a professional charity worker and social activist. Upon his graduation, he intends to spend some time doing hands-on work in Africa or India before returning to the states to start a non-profit organization.
