Welcome To Paradise
"I Don't Think We're In Kansas Anymore!"
Welcome to Riverside, California, USA, where the sun's hot and the people are hotter. Sign up for class, get yourself a roof over your head, and get ready to live like you've never lived before. Get ready to make friends, make enemies, and make a name for yourself, whether it's for the right or wrong reason, because it's better to be known for the bad stuff than not known at all. You'll meet plenty of nice people, and plenty of nasty ones too. You better get used to having your heart broken, because no doubt it'll happen at least once. If you're pretty enough, you can become a model, and be admired by many and hated by others. If you're talented enough, you can become a photographer and go take photos of the beautiful people. Or maybe you want to make music? Maybe the Concert Hall is where you'll spend all your free time? Perhaps you're not interested in either of those. Perhaps you just want to survive High School. Well good luck with that.
There's something in the air at Riverside. Even your best friend will kiss your boyfriend if she gets the chance. Even the most popular girls in the school turn out to be desperately lonely. You can be eating a McDonald's with someone one day and they'll be making excuses and dashing off into the toilet to puke it all back up, and you'll be none the wiser. If you don't find allies, then you might find yourself on your own, and even if you're a loner by nature, you'll come to find that life can be Hellish when no one cares about you. You'll come to find that Riverside is far from beautiful underneath, but by then, you'll be too addicted to the place to move away.
You'll say you hate someone, but you know you love them, and you'll cry and stamp your feet and maybe, just maybe, they'll come home. Or maybe they won't. If you're strong enough, you'll move on, and maybe find your soulmate. Nothing's certain with Riverside, except that you'll have the time of your life. The best times, the worst times. Everything. You just have to turn towards the sun and step onto the beach. You just have to make it happen.

"I'm impressed. Your skin and banner are very well done and interesting. The colors compliment each other nicely and they aren't too harsh or too light. Overall, the layout is extremely good... The biographies, rules, taken characters and such are very easy to find. They literally scream "read me!" You explain everything thoroughly and pretty much at the simplest level possible. It's all very organized and easy to understand... Usually I don't see this kind of site that's still active. The idea, while common, fits this place very nicely. You've done incredibly well with it. You've spun it to give it your own flare of uniqueness... Very literate, very good grammar, easy to find documents. I understand exactly what you're doing and, had I joined without reviewing first, I would have been able to navigate smoothly and with ease."
