Urban School Roleplay Sim, Princeton North High is now looking for students and non students in the pre-season to the sims opening. IM-Draco Bearsfoot for more details.

Student Roles-

    Average Student- Not bad, not good, not amazing but not boring, Just another face in the crowd, you raise your hand when you want to and don't particularly excel at anything.
    
    Popular Kid- At the top of the Social Latter, theses are the Cheerleaders, Jocks Not always the Smartest apple on the tree, but what they lack in intelligence they make up for in good looks. Shallow and easily amused, they throw the best party's and are under the mindset that everyone whats to be them.  [Title earned through rp]
    
        Rich kids/ Preps- , typically good at sports, good at being social and rich. These kids Typical run for student office and often become home coming queen and king.

        Stoners- General Under achievers, always looking to chill out and down to skip class and hang out behind the gym. Remember anyone caught smoking on school grounds is subject to punishment.

        Goths/ Emos/punks- wear black, act sad, desperately try to make statements. They may wear clothes of the opposite gender, make out more openly in the hallway than other people, or protest general injustices in a angry and ineffective way. Emos maybe seen with brighter colors and more often in skinny jeans. Bottom of the social latter

        Nerds or Brains-These are the smart, nerdy, star-wars obsessed kids who get bullied and tormented, you get asked to be other people's lab partners because you're smart,  High school is your prison, while others peek your just waiting to reach your full potential. These kids are destined to get into a ivy league school.
    
     Poser-Someone who claims to know a lot about rap and doesn't understand hip hop is a culture not just music. Someone who listens to the radio and only watches b.e.t. Most of the time posers will say they like a rapper but they've only heard 1 to a few songs courtesy of mtv and there local radio station,  they follow the latest trend in rap while a real hip hop head just dresses like a regular person.
    
        Hip Hop Head- Opposite of above, they know the culture and live an breath it, White, Black, Spanish, anyone can learn and become understanding.

    Delinquent-Your have frequent visits to detention, there so much you have a designated desk. Disregard for authority, Your talk back to teachers and the bell doesn't affect your pace on your way to class. You are the bully's, drug dealers, and future offenders of the school, few expect you to make it to graduation [Title earned through rp]

I'm very interested.

 

What rubs me the wrong way though is the fact that punks are generalised as being emo's when they'd fit much more into the deliquent role. I'd love to play a punk, but not when they're made out to be sad emo boys ;_;

Punks are rather far away from goths and emos. Those are entirly different subcultures and even when one might argue that goth and emo seems clsoer together their main connection comes from both liking black colored clothing (not that true for goths however as they can dress up in colors and still be all fitting their clothing-style) ... but all in all those two are very separate as well.

And each of those three subcultures is itself divided into smaller groups and people follwoing various influences. But that would be too much and better left to those palying such roles to decide for themselves.

So yes, better keep it all separate and even better just let people come in as the character they want to be and see what kind of subcultures will form themselves

-Outsiders-People who don't fit into the society considers normal
                          -Goths-wear black, act sad, desperately try to make statements. They may wear clothes of the opposite gender,make out more openly in the hallway than other people, or protest general injustices in a angry and ineffective way.
                            

                           -Emos- people who might not have the hardest of lives, but just enough problems to make them think they do.  They might write poetry, where make up, skinny jeans, and stuff, but most "emo" guys are straight.Emo's who are not faking it do not like to be called emo, the conception that they  ALL cut themselves is wrong but some do. emo's are just as conforming as all the rest, and the real ones will admit it. They aren't trying to be abnormal, they just like how they look.
  

                       -Punks-A “real punk” will never stereotype themselves, Punk is not about a certain hair color, style, or music, although music does take a large part in most punks lives, punk's like what they like,are themselves , say what they think and have a "**bleep** ALL THE REST" kind of attitude

I would rather say that the description of goths given is rather far away from anything goth as they usually don't act sad (unless said person is sad but overall sadness and making it a part of personal appearence would rather make the person in question move closer to emo and not outright goth). Goths can be very funny people wearing other colors beside black and tend to be normal people with normal lives who just came to share a specific taste ^_^

But for a funny and actually even informative description about all the steerotypes and how right or wrong they are best see:

It is a very fun site about many things and often a entertaining read (even when I would say they overdo it here and there ;P )

Im not going for politically correct with these roles, im going for the general stereotype which I believe is correct, how people conform or morph around it, is obviously up to them and their rp.

I wanted to check the place out, maybe sign up but call me crazy but I couldn't seem to find it. Princeton North High comes up with zero results, your profile seems to be hidden from the public. So basically, people can't find the roleplay to sign up for it, might want to remedy that o.O;;
