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.

MELISSA PENDERGHAST ♔ 18 ♔ COLLEGE: FRESHMAN ♔ CRYSTAL REED ♔ OPEN
“See, I’m a hardcore gymnast. No way jumping up and down yelling “Go Team Go!” is gonna satisfy me.” - Missy Pantone
Melissa Penderghast is as blunt as they come. She’ll say exactly what she thinks without even hesitating. She’s different than the rest of Rosewood’s elite and isn’t afraid to show it. She’s definitely not like the girls around Rosewood, something that brought her closer to Frances Ford and Waverly Adler as the three girls stick out like sore thumbs against the prissy princess cutouts. Melissa rather get down and dirty than go to the mall and shop. Literally, she’s been known to be in charge of Rosewood’s fight club. That’s how she makes her money, off of watching guys beat the shit out of each other.Because she refuses to conform to the ideal image of the Rosewood girl, a lot of the popular girls make fun of her. Well, that and the fact that she scares them shitless.
She could kick all of their asses with a hand tied behind her back. But she hasn’t because she doesn’t want to disappoint her mother and father. When they enrolled her and her twin brother, she could see the happiness in their eyes. The school was going to make them into someone’s, so she wasn’t going to get expelled for giving one of the princesses a black eye. The guys around Ravenwood University adore her; some because of her personality… other’s because of her sexuality. Missy has always been open about her sexuality. She doesn’t care if you’re a guy or a girl. If you have a great personality and you get along, it doesn’t really matter what you have below the belt to her. When she arrived at Ravenwood, she was finally found a gymnastics team. She had been gymnast from a young age, but to her disappointment the closest thing to a gymnastics team in Rosewood Academy was the cheerleading team. Her least favorite people, who quickly became her favorite. But now she’s stuck between picking between her passion and her friends.
♔ THE PARTY:
Why did Missy agree to be 1985’s roadie tonight? Where was Thayer when you needed him. Out of kindness to her brother, she agreed to help set up the band equipment for their gig at Freddie Bueller’s party. Missy couldn’t help but find the party hilarious. Here were her prissy, prep asshole classmates grinding all up on each other and everyone getting drunk. She felt like taking pictures of every single one of them and sending it to the Dean. Let’s see how he’ll react when he sees his cream of the crop acting just as horrible as the rest of them.Melissa stood back and just watched everyone, nothing real interesting going on, expect for the occasional loser trying to flirt with her or ask her to have a threesome with him. All of a sudden though, she spotted Isis coming in. She knew nothing good could come from this. Especially when Isis ran off today during auditions, but like Isis- Melissa knew there was something up with the Toro’s routines.
One of them seemed similar to one they use to do at her old school, but Melissa brushed it off as coincidence. When Isis confronted the blonde cheerleader, Tori, she felt slightly bad for the girl. She didn’t seem to have a clue that her team’s cheers were stolen. Melissa just wanted to step in and tell Isis that she should back off and just leave Tori alone. Before she could though, Isis and her girls were heading out leaving the crowd in silence. Melissa watched as people stared at Tori, looks of disappointment of her friends face. Melissa looked over at her brother, who’s eyes were fixated on the girl. She knew why though, because he had a major crush on her.In that moment, Melissa decided that she would help the Toro’s. Even if it meant having to deal with the Preps.
