A Scots Quair

Recommended Posts

The tiny hamlet of Torridon is home to only 4 families, each running a different business. The McRaddie's own the farm, the Strachen's who run the local shop, the McTaven's who own the hotel/restuarant and the McKire's who own a small treking centre. The hamlet relies on tourism and farm produce to survive. So, though the McRaddie's own the farm, everyone helps on it.

You play a young criminal. As last attempt to get you 'straight' you've been sent all the way from the states to Torridon to stay and work. You are used to big cities, high street brand shops, cinemas and everything that comes with them. Now you have to get used to the rural way of life, the hardships of the highlands, the rough cold ways of its people and the lack of entertainment. And if that wasn't bad enough, the village speak in old scots dialect, which though classified as english, might as well be another language. Can you survive it?

Rules:

ANYBODY who breaks any rule will be 1st warned, then their charrie will be ignored if they break a rule again. You have been warned.

If you want to play a girl, you MUST also play a guy.

Your charries must have done something wrong, ie. no people who were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Ages 14-17

Romance is allowed, but you know when to stop.

No pp or gm

ooc: There coming on a Monday.

It was only 7.00am but everyone in Torridon was already up and about, most up at the farm helping with the milking of the dairy herd. By 8.00am John, Chae, Andy and David where sitting outside the hotel enjoying a late breakfast. They where the only villagers in site.

A car pulled up and three teenage boys stepped out, scruntinizing their surroundings. A middle-aged man had accompanied them, and now came out of the driver's seat. He went to the trunk and opened it, tossing three duffle bags towards the boys. "Hey!" Garrett protested gruffly, moving towards the man and towering over him by nearly half a foot. "I've got breakable stuff in there!"

"What? Your teddy bear?" The social worker countered just as gruffly. Daren and Juan snickered, and Garrett turned to face them, his eyes blazing. He was about to raise a fist but thought the better of it, letting his arm fall to his side as he picked up his bag with his other hand.

Spencer and Hoshi both arrive at the same time, in seperate cars.

"Oh, wow!" Spencer looks around. "It's gonna be so much fun here!" he gushes, faux-enthusiastically.

Spencer's handler-person groans and hands his bags out to Spencer, who doesn't take them.

Hoshi merely sighs and picks up her bags, starting to walk to wherever she's supposed to go, her social worker following her.

ooc: barrelqueen32, this is your 1st and only warning as you have already broken the rules. You must fix your character stats. Until you do I won't involve your character.

John looked at them all eyebrows raised. Suddenly he turned and whistled loudly through his fingers. 'Bairns, oot here noo!' he yelled before turning back to the crowd. 'Weel, si'doon' he said, indicating the wall.

Daoine legged it down the field, vaulted over the stone wall and joined Micheal and the rest. Looking the newcomers up and down, she was obviously not impressed, taking the same opinions as the others. 'Bunch o city glaiks' she muttered to Micheal who grinned at the comment.

===================================================

Another car had pulled up in front of the hotel. Two social workers got out and opened the doors for the two teenagers that got out from the back seats. The social workers set to talking to the men who sat eating in front of the hotel. "Do any of you know where these young 'uns supposed to be dropped off?"

Kris had picked up her half-empty backpack, and swung it onto her back. It was light, because she owned so few things before her parents left her.

Chris followed her, slinging his two bags as he walked. He glared at everyone with narrowed eyes, wishing he had his gun with him... but those distrustful police officers took it away.

Garrett gave Daoine a piercing glare, his jaw set angrily. He didn't want to be here anymore than they wanted him, so why should he be given a hard time about it?

Juan scuffed the toe of his worn basketball sneaker across the ground.

Daren looked about him, seeming very vaguely interested in his surroundings.

Juan's foot bumped into Garrett's a bit; completely by accident. Garrett didn't take it that way. He kicked Juan's foot back, hard. "That'll teach you to cut that out." Garrett muttered under his breath. Juan was on his feet in a moment.

"You better not do that again!" He forced through clenched teeth.

"Why, you going to call your Mommy? Not going to do much good; she's thousands of miles away." Juan's eyes blazed.

"Shut up!" He said; then swore. Garrett jumped up now.

"What'd you say?"

Daren watched the exchange with a blank expression on hiw face. He'd grown used to stuff like this happening.

"So what are we going to be doing here!" complained Chris, dumping his bags on the ground in a not-so-polite fashion. "This is so stupid. We're in the middle of nowhere!"

"Quiet, Chris!" Kris whispered, elbowing him.

John looked at Garrett then smirked and turned and walked over to the group. 'Daoine, take him when ye go look' he muttered, turning round. 'Right how we gonnae sort this oot?' he asked the group, who shrugged.

Kalli dropped her bags. She crossed her arms, and smirked.

OOC: Reminds you of someone?

Kaid stood next to Kalli, "Whats going on?" He wispered.. "Nothing!" She snapped, she had no clue why he hung out with her. She wasn't very fun.
