It's 1986, the height of cars, drugs, and hair metal bands. In Leeway, Oregon - a small town located near the Idaho border, population 648 - the graduating class of 1987 has been 34 people since the third grade. That is, until a newcomer on a vintage motorcycle and slick leather jacket arrives at Leeway High School with a cigarette between his teeth and sunglasses over his eyes and ruins the sense of normal that had fallen over the quaint town. He doesn't talk much, he never removes those stupid sunglasses.
Your character is just another junior at Leeway High School. You have a group of friends, a nice family at home, and a dog that likes to chew at the chair legs. You like normal. Things have always been normal. But ever since this newcomer arrived, there have been strange happenings.
Lights flicker occasionally. The teachers blame it on the low budget. The radio garbles and releases static much more than usual. Your father blames it on bad service. Your dog howls in the middle of the night. Your mother blames it on the temperature change. But none of that's plausible, none of it makes sense. Nothing like this has happened before. Nothing like this has ever happened before the arrival of the newcomer.
There's something odd about him. There's something that needs to be discovered. He's brought something to this damned town. He's ruined the normalcy that comfortably shrouded it. Nobody believes you when you tell them your theories.
Hell, guess it's up to you to figure out what's wrong with the newcomer.

I'll be playing the newcomer, you'll be playing the guy who's sus of him
I'd rather not do templates for this to continue the ~mystery~ aspect, so yeah.
my rules are pretty simple: don't be an ass, be somewhat active (response every 1-3 days is good, I'll try to also hold myself to that), swearing is fine, slurs are not fine, have good grammar, and I have the right to decline and/or ask for a sample if I need it.
