The teenagers of Rosewood Academy don’t know it, but they are living, breathing incarnations of iconic 1980s and 1990s film characters. Just like the characters in those films, some were hopeless in love, others were just looking for somewhere to belong, and a lucky few ended up with everything they wanted, only to just want to get away from it all.
After one of the wildest parties they've ever seen, the students of Rosewood Academy find that the social standards they once lived by have diminished. Sam Baker finally got the courage to talk to Jake Ryan, the Heathers got a taste of their own medicine, and Ferris Bueller finally got caught in one of his wild schemes. While they all come from different backgrounds and cliques, one thing's certain: this year at Rosewood Academy will be unforgettable.

This theme was created specifically for CHW by Cass/Admin C
and the culmination of at least seventy-two hours of work, so any and all compliments are appreciated. If any members find that they are having problems navigating, she would be happy to assist in such matters. (And if the issues are particularly frustrating, forgive her; she is running on a Mac, so her view of the blog may be quite different.) Special thanks to letsrp and rptheme-helper for the pieces that ultimately became this theme.
Anonymous: Has the rp ever become tedious? An admin talking here and since I've been a part of this rp before and have been following it, I just wonder, how do you deal with the issues and such after such a long time of being together?
For me, personally, this roleplay has never been tedious. That may be because I understand the experience as a member and then as an admin; I came into the position because I was dedicated to the group and had interest in becoming an admin.
Since there are only three admins now, we pretty much know how each other operates. One person comes up with an idea; we contribute to said idea until there's a finished product. It's a machine with very few kinks at this point since we've been working together for nearly a year and have been a part of the group for over a year - or, in Admin R's case, since CHW's original inception, as he's the roleplay's creator.
Admins R and T may contribute to this, but this is my piece!
I can't say that I've ever found it tedious just because from a member's perspective, the ensemble we have here, is above and beyond. Seriously, some of the people here are really some of the best people I know. You can seriously just message any one of our members and they'll be down to be in a plot, I've done it more times than I can count right now.
Then there's the fact that there's so many different types of characters here that one day, you could simply reply to a starter and potentially find a character that can really impact your character.
And from an admin perspective, never. Due to the fact that it's fun to think of new events and just overall things that'll push our members and explore more sides of their writing and their characters. Sometimes it's a win, sometimes it's not but at least we try to push and do new things and really that's all we can do.
Now I'll leave Admin T to respond to this.
Anonymous: are you guys planning on doing another snowed in event? i'm curious..

Anonymous: Are you guys accepting tonight?

80'S WEEK IS NOW OVER AND YOU CAN NOW BRING IN YOUR REGULAR CHARACTERS BACK ONTO OUR DASH.
Anonymous: Have you guys ever had a SEBASTIAN CARTWRIGHT?
We have, but it's been quite some time since he's been taken. So we'd love an audition for him!
SNOW IS GLISTENING, A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT.
The halls of Rosewood Academy and Ravenwood University are eeriely quiet, why you might ask? Because finals and classes are over and done with. No more trekking through the snow just go to class, no more early morning wake up calls, and no more falling asleep in the library. Trunchbull and Rooney have simply gotten their early Christmas presents.
The kids of Rosewood are now free to do whatever they want with their winter break. They can take this time to enjoy some fun in the snow or cause some mischief. Others might take this time just to relax and embrace the idea of just letting go. The streets are abuzz with holiday shoppers, all looking for the prefect present for their loved ones. The cafes in town are bustling with countless orders from people trying to avoid becoming human Popsicle, and like always, St. Elmo’s is the place to be, as it serves as a perfect place for people just to hang out during these months.
So break out that winter wear and don’t let the freezing cold stop you from enjoying; a Rosewood winter.IMPORTANT ADMIN POINTS
- School is OVER until January 13th for both Rosewood Academy and Ravenwood University. So students are now back home for the holidays.
- We’re still deciding on whether to do a Christmas para prompt in the vein of our Thanksgiving ones or… an Secret Santa prompt. If we go with the latter, we’ll be releasing more information very soon. If you have preference to which one you’d like to do, please message the main, like always, your opinions really do matter to us.
- We’d also like to thank those who have taken on the CHW MEME, your graphics are amazing and we hope you’re having as much fun with it as we are.WE'RE HAPPY TONIGHT, WALKING IN A WINTER WONDERLAND.

ATTENTION! ATTENTION! ATTENTION!
After carefully thinking it over, we've decided to cut 80's week down a day so this event will be over tonight at 10 PM EST. So please wrap up all plots and feel free to start changing your accounts back.
We'll release some information on what Rosewood has been up to while we left it, and no that's not a cue for evil laughter. I promise.
