yoooo here’s the sign ups for that story I promised :3
also the title is temporary. I couldn't think of a good one so suggestions are welcome.
It’s 3019, and technology, medical studies, and other stuff haven’t developed as much or as quickly as had been predicted. To promote further progress in professional fields, a special organization was created.
The Global Institution for the Future, better known as the GIF.
Even though the word ‘global’ was in its name, this high school was founded by a small family. They saw the opportunity to become world famous by bringing in as many as possible talented youngsters to their school. Then they’d provide them with the best education there was and special areas to develop their abilities more. They wanted to create the next generation of athletes, scientists, writers, and overall, any profession that’d cause technology to be pushed farther than ever before. Of course, the GIF was quickly supported by governments all over the world…
However, there was a secret purpose to the GIF. One that hadn’t been told to anyone at all.
You see, the whole point of creating a school for exceptional youths was to find CERTAIN people.
Ever since the beginning of the world, there has been a special kind of ‘humans’.
Those that embody something that exists in Earth.
It might be as vague as the ocean, or as specific as Wikipedia, but there’s no doubt these people exist. And they’ve been known as Personifications, over the years.
Most of the time, though, they look AND act like normal people, rarely knowing that they’re almost a different species.
And you know what?
Someone related to the creator of the GIF is trying to track down these unique people. And he’ll use them in his evil plan, no doubt.
-3019 it is, but as I mentioned before, tech hasn’t really… advanced much. Stuff like smartwatches and phones are super common things tho. TVs are a thing of the past, since the internet can provide anything you want to do or watch.
-Flying cars exists. As well as hoverboards (skateboards) and hoverskates (skates). So yes, you character can own one of those last two. Or a hoverbike (motorbike/bicycle) maybe. Idk. Let your imagination run wild.
-This story takes place in Lima, Peru. However, due to globalization, most classes are dictated in English. And yes for convenience Peru is a larger country in this AU.
-The GIF has a really large campus, and there are special places for the students to practice what they love most. Are they bakers? There’s a special kitchen somewhere over there. Tennis players? Sure, there are several tennis fields out there.
-Only a small portion of campus is dedicated to housing the students. This is due to the fact that they’re divided into “rich”, “money” and “no money” categories. “No money” students are from poor families, and they’re the ones who have a room at the GIF. “Money” students, on the other hand, tend to be from middle-class families are given funds based on their performance at school and given access to rent a room/house/apartment for themselves in Lima. And “rich” category students are basically left by themselves to get a room of their own, as they’re from rich families (duh). The idea is to let everyone get high-quality education no matter from what origin.
-Students are scouted from ALL over the world, so you might find a Russian and a Mexican sharing a dorm.
-Students who don’t speak English or Spanish are generally sent into advanced classes to learn the language. And coupled with a translator (a student who knows both languages) to aid them through their school year.
-Classes aren’t divided by grades or age, but rather by how good a student’s performance is on a certain subject. A 18 yr old could be classified into Math 1 if they’re not good at it. Or a 16 yr old could be placed into the final Science course if they’re good enough at it.
-The Online Student Network, or OSN, is like a social media site exclusive for GIF students. Think of Facebook, Google Drive, Gmail, IM apps, and any kind of social media in one app!
-Most of the time, Personifications are completely unaware of the fact they’re not exactly human.
-Personifications appear randomly around the world. They’re generally adopted and raised by a nearby family.
-The only way a Personification can be born is if one of the parents is a Personification themselves. The chance then is 50%.
-They naturally possess a [usually] passive power, and can develop more if they master their natural ability. Say, the Personification of fire’s ability is to withstand extreme heat without holding damage to herself, save a few minor burns.
-Personifications get scouted for the GIF a lot because they’re often naturally good at something related to what they personify. This isn’t always the case though.
-No Mary Sues, Gary Stus, or any kind of perfect character.
-Edgy/kawaii characters are okay I guess, as long as they have a rounded personality. No full-on edgy characters.
-LGTBQ+ is okay I guess as well. By that I include the gender spectrum too.
-I doubt I’ll be doing ships though. But well.
-Give me a variety of personalities, okay? I don’t want a load of happy-go-lucky characters.
-The characters can be from any country in the world, and it’s okay if a couple of them are from the same country. But again, I don’t want 1/3 of characters from the same country.
-There can only be 1 Personification per thing/concept. There can’t be two Personifications of fire, for example. Be sure to save the thing/concept you want!
-2 characters per person, max.
-Some of the characters may turn ‘evil’ later on.
-I doubt anyone will die, but just in case, specify if it’s okay for your character to die in the form.
-If I find something that isn’t specified in the form, I’ll base myself on the other content to make it up. Say, a character’s reaction to something.
-Try to balance genders out I guess?
Form time! Remember, you can also make normal human characters if you wish.

Be sure to save your spots, okie? And don’t be afraid to ask questions/point out anything I forgot here :) I’ll send my form in just so y’all can see a model of how to fill in the form.
