[Academy RP] Community Divided


Recommended Posts

Welcome to this week's area of focus; As most people know the more Meallángan Countys, have called for a Referendum back in early 2017, Four years on the election on the Referendum was put on hold as the surprised death of King Jòhann II in October that year and the crowning of a new monarch Sarah II. As at the time of her Coronation she was only 18 years old, and the Law stated that no leader under the age of 22.9 years old can not pass or reject laws or bills being put fore. As because of this law the Bill that was at the forefront of the Referendum, So the election could not take place. On 19 November 2021, Queen Sarah II finally rejected the bill her father was about to pass. And since then the Counties voting for the Referendum have found it harder than they thought to agree on what is right for the region. Most people still believe life in Gotneska is much better, but a small group is holding on to hope. I spent a few days in the hotspot of the Referendum. A small village name Mistlyn about 1.5 outside the capital city. I spoke to locals asking who would like to an interview on why or why not they support the Referendum. The first person i talked too was Ms. Teagan (Tara) ó Broin, She is against the Referendum. And finally Mr. Michael ó Mahoncuy who supports the Referendum.

The following is a Q/A type discussion about the topic:

Meeting with Ms. Teagan

News Reporter: So Ms. Teagan can you tell me a little about your life, and what think about this Referendum?

Teagan: Thank you for letting me speak my opinion. So first off I'd like to say I really don't understand the history behind why the Referendum ever became a way out of this mess. I was born in early 1998 so yes I'm only 23 almost 24. All I remember is when I was young everything seemed good, people loved their country, my parents would go out with friends. But when I turned 13 it seemed as things were changing fast. I don't know if that because I don't understand who the wurld worked but all I remember is my dad and one of his coworkers like yelling at each other and my mom trying to get me and my siblings away. 

 

NR: Seems like you had a good early childhood. My next question is what exactly do you disagree with?

T: Will first off, I'd say that I'm probably anti-Referendum is mostly because of my parents, they lived thought what I don't remember or happened before I was born. But doing my own research, I found that the bill wasn't as bad as everyone was saying it was but then When you have crazy Separatist  Groups. That for some reason that I still really don't understand why they dislike this country. For one, we've been one nation since the 900's if my math is right, that's 1,100 and something years.

NR: You sure did your research and yay it's weird why a region that had been a part of said nation for 1100 yrs wants to leave. When for most of its history has been in a good relationship with the royal family.

T: Yay, that's another thing about this, which again I don't understand why did the King in the first place even think about letting this pass. As his Wife is from a small village in County Chláir. And that now his offspring are related to these people.

NR: I think most people don't understand much of anything about this topic. I mean, I just started looking into it, and it looks I'm not even as confused by it then a native to the region.

T: She laughs and says that our wurld. Lol.

NR: Thank you for your time Teagan I hope this lets people have a better idea of this topic, which I believe most people don't understand.

T: Will Thank you for having me. Hope you learned some stuff you don't know already.

 

After my meeting with Ms. Teagan and got ready for my next one, I thought to myself these are my brothers in arms, and they would harm their own because of something a king was thinking of passing but died before doing so and sadly leaving a mess for his teenage daughter to fix. God bless my Queen, Sarah II.

Meeting with Mr. Michael

NR: Thank you for meeting with me, you probably have better things to do, but again, thank you. Okay, let’s get to the heart of this topic. Can you tell me why you support the Referendum and for how long have you believe in this.

Michael: Thank you for having me. To be honest I’ve just never felt this country cared for us, yes I understand we helped form this nation, but we also destroy it. And I’m more than happy to do that. I’m a f*cking 44-year-old being ruled by a 22-year-old girl, there are more people that share that view but no one what’s to say so. And to your second question, since I was maybe 19. When I joined a secret organization which I can’t name.

NR: Hmm, I think I’m done with this discussion. But thank you.

That's quite alright. I've gone and corrected most of them. Future candidates also read these examples, so we need to set the right standards and expectations.

Spellcheck is everywhere these days. If you're interested, I'll share my experience with browser plugins that work well.

@Gotneska Your Academy RP reads like a nice story. It switches between exposition and conversation, which is a good sign 

There were some minor typos, which have been corrected. Polishing your texts happens all the times. 

Your vision statement also makes some sense. Culture: probably a Celtic-Nordic mix.
