You've been living your days at school just like everyone else for years. You're used to how things are supposed to be done, you're used to the same walk or train ride to school, you're used to the same old, same old. It's normal.
Sitting on the open ledge of your 2nd-story-or-higher window is someone who threatens all of this. Why is he wearing such a wide grin? Where did he buy those ridiculous-looking white thick-rimmed sunglasses? Before you can ask these questions out loud, men in black suits line up in your room (Where did they all come from?!), shades covering their eyes and thin-lined scowls bearing down upon you. Is this a kidnapping? Is this a robbery? Is this the end of your short-lived existence...?!
"ENROLL IN MY SCHOOL~!" proclaims the grinning man, a shining beacon of fabulousness and perfectly-pressed clothes.
You feel like you've seen him before, once you get a good look at him. He removes his bug-like sunglasses to reveal the face that has covered magazines and newspapers across Japan for the last year - Julian Akio Michael Knut Axvig-Suzuki IV, 40-year-old (though he looks 25) billionaire!
You've been selected by Julian personally (after much scouting and possibly illegal spying) because of a "special something" or "spark", and you've been given the chance to enroll at Quo Vadis Academy, an educational facility for high school and college students. You'll have to leave where you are and move to one of the dormitories on campus and say goodbye to any friends you've made so far, but there are many reasons to consider his offer. Companies from all over Japan, and some overseas, will be watching graduates from this school, and you're guaranteed many chances to rub elbows with some of the biggest names in any industry. The facilities are practically ahead-of-the-curb, thanks to Julian's fortune. Not only that, but tuition is not much more than that for a normal education facility, high school or college.
"I've already talked to your parents/guardian," Julian says in a captivatingly charming tone, adding a wink, "and they're already on board. I want you at my school. I've seen it in you, and I want you and all the rest of the youth of this nation to get the chance to find the potential hidden inside of them! So, come on!
Join, and know thyself!"
Quo Vadis is an AU, multi-fandom RP taking place in the current year, the current month, in an academy for high school through college students. It's not completely out-of-this-world; there are clubs to join, and school festivals every so often. It's a place for characters to live out their school days as if their original canon hadn't happened yet. This is a slice-of-life, romance, personal-discovery story where characters will come and meet new friends, try to find out who they are and what they're going to do in the future, and maybe fall in love, just like us! The setting is present-day Japan, and thus there will be no magic or superhuman powers; here, power is money and networking, just like in the real world! Instead of being threatened by an evil sorceror trying to destroy the world, characters must overcome obstacles of a much more mundane nature. Should I tell my upperclassmen what I really think about her potential for becoming a ballet star? How do you juggle a schedule without breaking any promises? Should I follow my parents' dream for me, or my own?
Julian built this school so that the youth of the nation can be nurtured and find their true potential, and holds a firey passion for them to advance and become the future of this world. Globe-trotting through his younger years, his well-mascara-ed eyes saw various things working and not working in the world, and came home to Japan with an unshakable resolve to contribute to society in more ways than he already was. He also had a flare for being The One Odd Billionaire, and couldn't stand for doing the same charity foundation building that Bill Gates and the rest always do (*yawn!*). Instead, he opted for a future solution, investing in the minds of the next generation. He's put millions into this school, and he's counting on you to study, party, study more, soul-search, and find what it is that you were put on this earth to do!
