Thomas Scott and Samuel Morris were best friends for their entire lives-birth and up. After collage, though, they went separate ways due to the fact the other’s dreams bored the others. (best friends are SO much fun) Thomas (Tom) went into the music industry and Samuel (Sam) went into business.
Tom wasn’t a very successful musician (money-wise), but he absolutely loved what he did and felt very content. He lived near a run-down (but still functional) school and rendered his services to helping the kids (who are ages elementary through high school and don’t have a lot of money) find the experience the beauty of music for little or not money. He made many friends out of the older kids and their relatives.
Sam became successful (in many different ways) when he opened his own business, (a thrift story) The Crow’s Nest, since crows found some very good objects (fun reasoning). It became very popular very fast and grew. It started out as a thrift store but he and some of his new business buddies made a magazine and sold it cheap. The subscription became very popular and the group had to expand. So they bought an office building near the thrift store and started printing more copies.
The magazine (just for a side note) was about how people can change the world. It turned out that an engineer read it and designed an engine that (if you haven’t guess it yet) that could drive 64 miles to the gallon in the worst conditions. Sam invested in this engine and it was found that was adaptable to most motor vehicles. All the car companies were soon buying these engines and Sam became a very rich man. Every Christmas, though, he sent Tom a gift. This year it was an Iphone so they could be in touch for as long as they wished.
To help him with his new success, he hired a man called Ronald Phillips to help him get organized. This man put powerful thoughts in Sam’s (who just wanted to make a difference) head. Sam listened, too trusting, to Ronald and started the road down corruption even while he was trying to save the world. After creating other things, he decided to run for President.
He ended up winning by a landslide and Congress loved him. He passed a bill though the House that Ronald had “accidentally” slipped in a clause that would make Sam more powerful. Sam soon controlled a country that was close to a dictatorship. No one could speak out against Sam, since the entire U.S.’ military was protecting him.
All the while, Tom saw what was happening to his friend and, with the passing of this bill, knew the world was in trouble. He told Sam so and Sam got mad at him. Tom then started up a rebellion called The Fighting Dove and vowed to make sure his friend realized what he was doing.
(I’m sorry that beginning was so long, but I felt the history was necessary.
So basically you choose a side you want to be on and their fighting against each other (the Crow’s Nest for domination, the Flying Dove for freedom)
- No god-modding
- No killing other peoples characters, without their consent (obviously, some people are going to die)
- Limited swearing
- No gross sex scenes, I mean, come on.
If you’d like to be either Sam or Richard, please PM me with their profiles so I can approve of them. Thank you!
Here’s Tom, my character:
[B]Side you’re on[/B]:
Name: Thomas (Tom) Scott
Side: Fighting Doves (leader)
Messy, dirty blond hair and dark, almost black, eyes. He also has some stubble, just because he can. Tom always wears second-hand T-shirt and jeans (usualy with holes) and, when it gets cold, a sweatshirt.
He is outgoing and warms up to people easily. He's easy to talk to and listens more than he speaks. Tom Believe there is good in everyone and will readily hand out second and third chances, though he will disicpline as well as forgive.
Tom tends to stare off into space a lot and has a minescule attention span. He loves to spend time with kids. He also loves to make people laugh and smile. When Tom is serious, he will contemplate a problem and will only decide on a plan when all the facts are given to him.
He grew up quite happily with his best friend, Sam Morris. They did everything together (pulled pranks, got into trouble in every possible way...stuff like that). When they graduated from high school, they promised each other that they'd stay friends to death. And they followed through, every holiday, they got together with their families and were just like they were in high school.
This went on for years and years until Tom started to notice the corruption that Sam was falling into. Tom told Sam exactly what he though, just as he'd always done. Instead of listening to Tom, though, Sam blew up and told Tom never to speak to him again.
Soon after, Sam was elected President and Tom started up The Surviving Dove, a peaceful resistance, and they became enemies.[/spoiler]
