Actual School Type Things Time!!
Hi there, me again! As you’re probably well aware, this is a School based RP and so after a very detailed and hectic conversation, us mods have decided to throw a few clubs on for the students. If you head over here, there’s a list of clubs that we currently have in mind. From now until 30th July, we’re asking that people send in names of characters for Heads of the club. Obviously you can send in other clubs any time, but unless it has a Head, it won’t be listed as active. So, I’m hoping that all makes sense and get sending in. Let’s get some school spirit/vibes up in here. - Mod Charlie xoxo
Brennan Soil II Twenty-Five Years Old II Drama Club II Trainees
"Good job, everybody!" - Mr Soil
Even from a young age, Brennan has always been a very extravagant and extroverted person. As a baby, he was always ahead of his peers, eager to be crawling and on his legs. This lead to a few complications with his knees ofcourse but that went away over the years. Bren’s family were extremely diverse. With a black Aunt who was adopted into the family on his Mom’s side and a gay cousin on his Dad’s side, he had only ever seen and believed in equality. Family events were his favourite things growing up as a child. There wasn’t a single pessimist in the family so everyone only ever believed in a good time. It wasn’t a party unless atleast one person burst out into song and turned everything into a musical. Brennan was just as friendly and nice as his family. Since his mother was a set dresser, he got to spend a lot of time in local theatres too. Living in London meant that each time he went with his Mother to work, it was usually a West End theatre and boy did he love it. Each time was like an adrenaline overdose and after he got home each day, Brennan would thank his Mother eternally then go to bed a happy boy.
One aspect of his life that Brennan couldn’t quite manage however was having a sibling. Around the age of six, his younger sister Flora was born. The age gap was immediately obvious. Bren never wanted to play with her and asked again and again to go with his Mother to work to get away with her. After a few times of trying to get him to stay home, his parents realised that there wasn’t much point in trying to get the pair to bond. Before too long, Flora was also visiting the theatres. Brennan obviously had no choice other than to boss her around and tell her what to touch and what not to touch. Their relationship remained that way for many years, only beginning to east up when Flora was old enough to know what to do and what not to do. Plus, unlike Brennan, she wasn’t interested in theatre so she wasn’t backstage much anyway.
Brennan only went to the best of schools. From the age of 10, he attended Junior classes at the famous Guildhall School of Music and Drama. His primary education was relatively normal but he went to High School at Sylvia Young Theatre School. This meant that he only did normal classes Monday through to Wednesday. Thursday and Friday was spent training in all things Musical Theatre and general Acting. After finishing there, he moved on to Tring Park School for the Performing Arts for two years. There he did a Musical Theatre course, and that was his Sixth Form Education. After a further three years doing a University course back at Guildhall, it was then that he finally decided he was done with education. Brennan had gained all the experience and qualifications he thought he’d need so began to look for acting jobs. Luckily, his Mother’s job meant that she was able to introduce him to a few people here and there. Through his connections, he got an odd supporting or background roles on West End. That was enough for now. Something just wasn’t right though. It turned out that he enjoyed Brennan enjoyed being in education to do with Drama much more. After he explained this to his parents, they began to look for another elite place for him to go to where he could train to be a Drama Teacher, specialising in musical theatre ofcourse.
It took around three years to finally decide on Wishing Well. Those three years gave Brennan a lot of time to develop himself as a person though, so they weren’t entirely wasted. Whenever he met knew people, he just listed of the names of places he’d studied at and they were eager to get to know him. He got involved in protesting, mainly for gay rights. His confidence from doing drama all of his life really helped with that. In the streets, Brennan was one of those obnoxiously loud protesters who actually got stuff done. Before actually attending Wishing Well, he stayed in New York for a year to get to know the city. Joining the International Thespian Society is another thing that he just loves dropping into conversation.
Living off campus still, Brennan absolutely adores attending Wishing Well. Although a trainee, he prefers to class himself as a Drama Club kid because he knows that is where his heart really belongs. Constantly going out for places in the school shows, Bren is still actively involved in the Musical Theatre and Performing Arts Industry. He’s an avid attendee of Broadway, the place he now lovingly calls his second home. Despite his age difference from the rest of the Drama Club, he gets on extremely well with them because of their love for performing. Brennan is forever giving them tips, and ofcourse still boasting about the schools he got to attend back in England. His sister’s at the school now too and thanks to the time apart, he doesn’t find her quite as annoying anymore. Brennan’s actually proud and surprisingly, protective of her now.

It’s me again, sorry. I’m aware that the follow list might still be a bit off with people?

So if all of you, when you have the chance, could just check yourself (
before you wreck yourself ha I’m so funny) on the list and make sure it’s all cool, that’d be great, k thnx. This includes hiatus status’ and characters. Please don’t kill us if it’s wrong. Just send us a message and it’ll be corrected. If we don’t get a message from you, we’ll assume it’s correct. Awesome? Cool. - Mod Charlie xoxo

Francis Lady II Eighteen Years Old (College) II Jocks II Third Year
"Being a ladybug automatically makes me a girl!? Is that it, flyboy?" - Francis
It’s a sad story but Francis Lady has never really had a proper ‘home’. There was no where permanent that he could return to as he lived on the road with his parents, travelling with a small, sad excuse for a circus. As a child, he loved all the crowds of intrigued strangers and free food that varied from fairy floss to corn dogs, but as he grew the glamour wore off. He grew tired of the tight costumes that risked infection in the nether regions and the make-up that made people question his sexuality and gender. It was a crazy and hectic lifestyle. Just seeing normal people was bizarre for him. The concept of a house became alien to him. It just wasn’t the way of life that he wanted to live anymore, so eventually he ran away from the circus aged 15. It left his parents heart broken, worried and in a state of panic. His mother loved him with all of her heart and drowned in worry that she’d done something wrong and it was her fault that her son had run away. Little did his parents know that they had in fact done nothing wrong.
Travelling the road alone really developed Francis as a person. He experienced a lot. Something that was a struggle however was money. To try and earn some, he’d enter himself into backstreet fighting competitions and do physical labour for people who needed help. He was getting atleast a scar every month from all the fighting, which wasn’t always in the ring. Men would assume that he was just as feminine as his last name which ofcourse Francis was not going to stand for. He has an extremely short temper. He isn’t quite smart enough to come up with brilliant come backs but if they don’t work, he can always rely on his muscle. One guy took quite an interest in Francis and his talent in the ring with his muscles. For a few months, he was shipped around America by this guy, taking out people. It wasn’t exactly honest work but he got decent money for it and the scars he gained were always interesting for stories.
It was whilst travelling that he came across Wishing Well Academy. The place was absolutely amazing and seeing it made Francis realise that he’d never really got much of an education. Somehow he managed to persuade his boss to stick around in New York long enough for him to figure out how to join. As a circus kid, he unfortunately has no form of identification and as he was still under 19, he’d need a parental signature and that also was impossible for him to get. So he was forced to do more dishonest work and lied to the school about his heritage. Using his naturally high level of confidence and charm, he told them that he was the great grandson of a Spanish-French king and that if the school didn’t let him in, then his family would hear about it and the school would probably end up being shut down. The school were more than happy to take in royalty, already home to foreign royals and growing stars. A few days after his place was official, they found out that he’d lied but obviously by then it was much too late.
His first few weeks were a struggle enough without his parents finding out where he was. In almost every class, he was ridiculed for his last name ‘Lady’. He tried to explain that someone’s last name does not define them and their personality but the more dumb-headed jocks weren’t going to listen. His hot head though meant that nine times out of ten, he’d end up in detention for violent and disorderly behaviour. Francis would challenge the bullies and before too long he actually earned a lot of respect from people like Rex Ralph and Hans Boulting-Casterly for his fighting talents. He’d prayed that he wouldn’t have to use the talent’s he’d learned on the street at school but if that’s what had to be done to get respect then so be it. He secured himself a safe place in the Jock clique. People saw Francis Lady as a show, a performer. The combination of his years of tight rope practice, somersaulting and the various, probably illegal fight techniques he’d learnt on the street meant that he knew by heart how to win a fight. He was smart. The boy would use the opponents weaknesses against him. And then there was his parents. Francis gets about 3 texts and 2 missed calls from them every day and a letter every week, asking if they can see him and meet him again. They want to know how he is doing but Francis fears that they just want to pull him back to the circus.
Unlike a lot of people, the more stupid and stereotypical Jocks didn’t bother Francis. They knew better and it would just be stupid of them to mess with him anyway. After all, he has the patience of a flea and easily snaps at the smallest of things. Every insult is taken to heart and easily picks out people’s flaws when he meets then and judges them on them. Something that drew him in however was the school’s Circus club. Sure, it had been the life that he ran away from and is still avoiding but it’s still part of him. The fact that he grew up in a circus will always be a part of him no matter how much he tries to deny it, so he joined. Meeting students who actually want the lifestyle that he had confuses the hell out of him sometimes, but everyone in the club is relatively nice and all have their own uses. There’s pretty much atleast one person who can go to for advice on anything. It was whilst hanging around with Rosie and Gypsy that Francis was introduced to full make up. He used to wear stage make up whilst in the circus but this was so much more different. There was just something about it. As the position of tight rope walker was already taken up by Rosie, he tentatively offered to be a drag act and it was welcomed by the team! Despite being one of the most macho people you will ever meet, he happily joins Gypsy and Rosie on shopping trips now to look for new dresses. Behind his back, people will mock him but they’d never dare do it to his face. It’s actually made it easier for him to talk with girls now. He understands what they’re on about. Don’t get the wrong idea though. Francis Lady is definitely not gay. In fact, unfortunately, he’s can be quite homophobic sometimes.
Francis is good friends with Flick Anton. Ofcourse, at the start of their “friendship”, he couldn’t tolerate the boy. His stutter went right through him and Francis sometimes would genuinely just walk away. It’s tolerable now though. Through Flick, he met Atta Reed. Francis wholly believes with every bone in his body that Atta and Flick belong together. He’s constantly giving Flick advice on how to get the girl. Flick just isn’t getting it though. So, if Flick doesn’t make a move eventually, Francis might just make a move on the girl himself. After all, she is obsessed with fashion and wish his drag queen act, Francis knows all about the latest fashion.
