    Over Arching Plot
    The school year has started already, and it’s getting closer and closer to Christmas time. Soccer season is in full swing, the winter play is getting put together, art shows are preparing for shows and kids are buzzing about different things coming up, such as Halloween, Homecoming, and the school wide Secret Santa that kicks off in the first week of December.
    Our kids school and another rivalry school decide to have a soccer match to prove which one of them is better once and for all. This means everyone is going to end up working with one another, even if they've never met before. So that should be some good drama, and obviously I think our school should win.
    All our characters, at least known one person in our group of ten, and are going about their daily lives as high school students, but realize that this year is different, a year they won’t ever forget. There is drama at the Halloween dance for the costume contest, drama about who will be getting homecoming queen and of course, drama when each of them has one another for Secret Santa.
    This is really all I have for over arching plot. We can talk more about it when everyone settles into this forum thingy. But I figure the time set is like.. early October? That seems like a good place to start, cause so many holidays are coming up, and schools always have drama then.
    The end will be graduation, everyone getting ready for college and what not, and just everyone loving one another and reflecting on their last year.
    *Special thanks to Alex for the holiday idea. It was brilliant.

    Character Bios


    Ashlynn Storms has always been a tough girl. Being the youngest sister with three old brothers, she learned what it was like to get kicked around and suck it up. Ashlynn, a complete athlete has an inhuman ability to play soccer, and knows that she’s better than most. Though she’s friends with everyone, she’s known for her quick temper and take no shit attitude. Ashlynn is especially tenacious going into her junior year, since soccer starts right away.

    Niall Horan has been an athlete all his life. Good looking, charming and great on the soccer field, he is an absolute stud in high school, and he knows it. Everyone knows the name ‘Horan’. It makes the girls blush when they hear it, and make the boys nod in appreciation, like some sort of legend. Arrogant but funny, Niall knows that he rules his world. Just ask his varsity jacket.

    Madison Rosland is seventeen years old and is the school player. She’s hooked up with a few people but not as many as people think she has, however she keeps the reputation of being a player/slut because she finds that others are intimidated by her and she wants to keep it that way. She does, however, enjoy flirting/leading guys on, which has led her to a reputation of 'the female player/tease'. When she was sixteen, she dated three guys at once (and is not too sure how she feels about that in present time).

    Harry Styles is basically a player, he knows how to pull all sorts of girls and is proud in the fact that he can do so. He's popular and charming, however he has only a select few good friends - all boys, none of the opposite sex. The only girl he's ever come closest to a friendship is Madison, who aren't necessarily friends but do look out for each other and give their opinions on the hottest girls/guys to get with and who's more of a challenge, etc. He thinks Madison is hot would never go there because she is the closest female person to him and he doesn't want to ruin that.

    Nicolette Peterson was brought up in a house with parents who nurtured their children's creativity. While her younger sister is skilled in playing a number of different instruments, Nicolette spends her time with a sketchbook or an easel and paints. Although it doesn't really seem that many people outside the art room understand her, so she tends to stay quiet in other situations.

    Louis Tomlinson is a name most people attribute to the outgoing, funny seventeen year old. Louis likes to make people laugh so he occasionally interrupts class with his comments and murmurs jokes for the people sitting near him to hear. He's friendly for the most part but some people find him obnoxious.

    Gina Rosen is determined and hardworking. She put countless hours of work toward becoming stage manager, and she's a great leader to the underclassmen working with her. She's very grounded, and one of her pet peeves is when the kids onstage in the musical don't appreciate how much blood, sweat, and tears stage crew puts into the show.

    Zayn Malik has had the lead in the school musical for the past two years, and for his final year, he's excited to play Aladdin. He's cocky about his talent and occasionally thinks himself better than the other people in the school because he can sing and dance and attributes the huge crowds the musical draws every year to himself.

    Pandora Aldaine She's shy and reserved. She lives with father, and younger brother. Her mother was a Greek mythology enthusiast and named her Pandora and her brother Achilles. Her father is a renowned archaeologist who is often away but does his best to make sure he knows what's going on in his children's lives. Pandora's best friend is her father and when he is home, she spends as much time with him as possible. She's a poetry nerd and specifically loves the Odyssey and the Iliad and loves Greek mythology as much as her mother did. Despite her father being rich, they live in a modest house a couple miles away from the center of the city in a small house with an elderly couple as their neighbor. The couple looks after them whenever Mr. Aldaine's away. Pandora's mother died when a drunk teenager runs her over and stops and freaks out. Mr. Payne meets them right as Mrs. Aldaine is dying and tells the boy to leave and stays with her in her last moments, and gets sent to prison for three years (happens when Pandora is 16 and Liam just turned 17). Pandora meets him without knowing and he tells her everything and Liam gets mad at him for lying for the kid.

    Liam Payne has troubles at home with his gold-digging mother and step-father who are rich. He normally lived with his father but he got sent to jail. After he meets Pandora, he starts to crash at her place.

    Ashlynn and Niall have been competing with one another all their lives. Though they hang out in the same crowd, and have the same friends, they constantly buttheads. Niall thinks that he’s better than she is, and she believes vice versa. Though they don’t hate each other, they never got along much either, until this year when the girls and boys soccer teams are forced to practice together for lack of more coaches. They both realize that they could be better players if they work together on soccer, and as they begin to practice together, they develop feelings.

    Madison and Harry have known each other all their life, they went to the same schools and have basically grown up with each other. They're not necessarily close but they're closer than acquaintances. They've always kept an eye out for each other during school time (advising which girls/guys to go for, things along that nature), and while Madison admits that Harry is good looking, the thought of her and him hooking up has never crossed her mind.

    Nicolette has known Louis since grade school, where they were once friends. In high school they drifted apart as he became part of the more popular crowd and she stuck to the group of kids who ate lunch in the art room. Now, during their last year in high school, they have a few classes together and begin talking once again. They get their friendship back on track and maybe there's something more.
    Gina and Zayn…

    Sree's Girl and Liam...

    Outline


    Chapter 1(Noelle):Ashlynn is at practice as there is a huge game at the end of the week. Has a small confrontation with Niall to establish their rivalry. The entire school is prepairing for a big soccer game on Friday. Ashlynn informs Nicollete the game is crucial for a scholarship.
    Chapter 2(Alex): Establish Madison/Harry’s relationship/acquaintanceship. Madison and Zayn talk about her “boy drought” and Z suggests Harry, who is walking towards her way. M ‘ugh, no’, H and M talk about potential people and both agree to have someone for each other at Niall’s upcoming gath.
    Chapter 3(Yvonne):
    Chapter 4(Kate):
    Chapter 6(Noelle): The big girls match happens and they win, setting them up to go into finals. A huge party is going to be thrown at Niall’s large house in celebration of the win. Niall makes a comment that Ashlynn is good but not better than he is.
    Chapter 7(Alex): H and M set each other up with their respectful people; M ends up getting in while H has some trouble. M helps H out and she admires his skill and his looks, before being disgusted with herself.
    Chapter 8(Yvonne):
    Chapter 9(Kate):
    Chapter 11(Noelle): Madison and Ashlynn get assigned a project together in class and their pretty okay with it, and become friends. During lunch, Liam informs Ashlynn he’s staying at her house for the rest of the week, due to parental issues at home. Sort of establishes their bond.
    Chapter 12(Alex):
    Chapter 13(Yvonne):
    Chapter 14(Kate):
    Chapter 16(Noelle): There is a large halloween dance to which after, Ashlynn has a huge party at her house. During the party, the rivalry soccer team crashes the party and challenges both teams to a match. A co-ed, back yard game is set up to settle the score and to decide which team is actually the better team.
    Chapter 17(Alex):
    Chapter 18(Yvonne):
    Chapter 19(Kate):
    Chapter 21(Noelle): On the night of halloween, the week before the co-ed soccer match, a large group of friends go to the famous halloween fair where there are multiple haunted houses to raise money for the hospital. A ensues and incident with the other school and it brings the majority of all our characters together.
    Chapter 22(Alex): Aftermath of the fight, possibly consequences of it?
    Chapter 23(Yvonne): Maybe touch on being invited to Niall's to plan for the soccer match
    Chapter 24(Kate): Maybe touch on also being invited to Niall's to help
    Chapter 26(Noelle): Everyone who is involved in the private soccer match meets at Niall’s house to go over roles and how they are going to hold it. Everyone all thrown together in one room is a little bit of arguing, but it’s the first time all ten of our characters are together all at once. This is where I will establish how each and every one of our characters is connected.

    - Haven't added until up to hear. I wanted to put up the option of someone else writing the soccer match because since I write Ashlynn, I have a very limited point of view to write from on what exactly takes place.

    Okay I'm just gonna put my input in right now and then I'll work on the bio for Louis and his relationship with Nicolette. So...

    I'm terrible with titles so someone else is going to have to come up with something good.

    As far as labeling chapters goes maybe we could go by the girl's name? So like the my chapter would just be "Nicolette" I don't know, not very original but it keeps things clean.

    Third person sounds great.

    I don't really know how the school system in Australia or in the UK works, so I'd prefer the US but if someone's willing to explain how the school system somewhere else works that's fine.

    @ aaron tveit.
    Haha I can't ever come up with good titles, I swear I'm a bum at it.

    And I was thinking the same thing for chaptering. Just like, first and last name?

    I'm only slightly aware of the UK schooling system. I know that they don't go by 'junior' and 'senior' really, but rather 11th year and 12th year and so on. I only suggested this because the boys are from there, but it's up to deliberation!

    Yeah, true. UK or US would be preferable then. We'll see what the others want.

    Yeah college is called university, though I think the grades are 9th year 10th year 11th year and 12th year, if I'm correct. I can do some research.

    And I know that Alex is doing a player guy and player girl, but if bad boy you mean like, boy who gets in fights and gets detention, sure! Just.. I suppose avoid the ladies man, thing! But that sounds great.

    Now that I re-read this I'm wondering if Louis and Nicolette's relationship is too close to Madison and Harry's. Hmmm...

    @ aaron tveit.
    I wouldn't think that it is, really. They're very different people, personality wise. We can make it a small town so it's not uncommon if people grew up together.

    Ah, true. Nicolette and Louis will probably be a little more innocent than the players haha.

    I don't think EVERYONE should be friends, but I think that certain people should be friends. Like if Liam and Ashlynn are friends or anything like that!

    Ooh, I like that! And have Liam be a senior who'a friends with her brothers and stays with their family often because has issues, maybe? Like.. He lives with his step-dad and mom, but hates them because they're prim and proper and was close to his dad but stays with his mom because his dad was sent to jail by mistake? like.. he was accused of killing my girl's mom but he didn't? Does that make sense? Is any of this making sense? Because I'm a bit hysterical and sobbing right now so I just.. Yeah..
