First off, to be completely honest, I haven't posted the official list yet because I've been feeling a bit like my ideas aren't seen as worth doing. I don't know if it's just me, but yeah... I would have loved at least one more audition. Two, even, but for now I'm going to say we can work with what we have (and if later on anyone else wants in we can figure things out)
I had decided that this isn't going to be an events-based RP entirely, as it's more of just a slice-of-life thing so we can all write what we want about our characters when we want. There might be an occasional "event", like movie night or that type of thing. Even a college event, but for the most part I won't force anything. If you want to write a story about your character doing something, to for it.

Biography: (can be bullets or paragraphs, but be detailed)
Isabella was born in Las Vegas on the 5th September 1998, living there until she was 15.
Her parents divorced just a month after her 12th birthday. She lived with her mother in Henderson, a city near Las Vegas until she was 15. Then she decided to move to Port Angeles to live with her dad, Mace, because her mother,Lynne, had met and fallen in love with Carl, a 46-year-old hotel manager . Two months after they started to date steadily, Carl and Lynne decided to move in together. Isabella, so that her mother could live freely with her new partner, thought she would go to Port Angeles, to live with her dad.
Mr. Townsend was happy to have his daughter with him, so he provided to enroll her at Port Angeles High School.
Isabella fit in quite well in her new high school and soon she caught the attention of some guys, in particular of Jackson Hunt, captain of the wrestling team.
The two guys started to hang out as friends, then they became an item, albeit a bit ill-assorted( Isabella: nerdy, bookish, studious, clever,mature, witty, compassionate and kind. Jackson: the stereotypical popular jock, cocky, mean, always ready to laugh at losers, conceited, entitled only because he is an ace in almost every sport, obsessed with his looks and with nailing every pretty girl in the school). Everyone was astonished when their relationship became known. Some of the most popular kids, mainly boys, in Port Angeles high school became friendlier towards Isabella, though others, mainly girls, kept on behaving in an hostile way when Isabella was around.
However, every fairytale sooner or later ends: Isabella and Jackson broke up after a year and a half. Isabella discovered that Jackson never gave up on his awful habit of womanizing, so, heart-broken, miserable and outraged, she left Jackson for good. Nevertheless, Jerkson( this is his nickname) didn’t give in and kept on hounding Isabella, who, on the last day of her junior year lashed at Jackson in the school yard, making a fool of him.
Her senior year flowed smooth like oil, and she decided to enroll at Lakeside college in order to major in English literature and minoring in French language and literature.
At Lakeside she hopes she will begin to her life fully. She will meet funny and friendly roommates, she will make many friends, she will learn a lot of new things , and maybe she will find love. Speaking of this, she is going to have quite a relationship with the mysterious and sullen Adam Beaumont. Unfortunately for her, her past is going to haunt her again, since Jerkson( Jackson) Hunt goes to Lakeside too.
