To answer a few questions publicly that Storm_Puff asked me on msn. (sorry I made her type it out again, more sorry I have to as well)
1. I will give the public a condensed version of what I told her over msn. The uniforms have all been modified in some way, being it the colour change on trim, or by mixing two together. Although things have already been set in motion for the final (huge ass)(enormous)(so many pictures and so much drawing) (oh god) uniform post, here’s a sneak peek of what is happening:
Private High School: Igi’s middle school design. Now has uniform colours but student council and advanced classes receive white jackets.
Public High School: I went on your advice and added variety. This school’s uniform is a sailor uniform for the girls with a blazer for the boys. It is a recolour of one of poppy’s designs.
Private Junior School: Lull’s design, girl’s trim may be changed to match the boy’s uniform.
Public Junior School: Mashed Ban’s and Poppy’s designs together. Western style with plaid skirts but in Poppy’s colours.
Public Elementary School (there is no official private one): Sort of looks like Kiichi’s character’s uniform but I added a yellow hat plus my memory fails me.
2. Officially they will not exist. But I’m not going to be a big bitch about it. It has already been established that some characters NEED to go to a specific school in order to stay in the tegmew universe, so I’m not going to force people to change their character’s history to fit a group revamp. However I am greatly encouraging people to move their characters to one of the “official” schools of tegmew. The only difference will be increased options for rp with other members, and the ability to hold events (sports festivals, rivalries) between these official schools).
3. It will be like Japanese high schools and junior high schools. Americans grade 7-9 (ages 12-14) will be in junior high years 1-3 in japan, while american grades 10-12 (ages 15-17) will be in high school years 1-3 in Japan. However, skipping, failing, or having late/early birthdays can affect the age of the individual (there can be an 11 year old in grade 7/first year JH because they have a birthday in december for example).
