-->''Who Knows What Could Happen Next?! ...Well, nearly anything, really.''
-->- The Current Unoffical Slogan for WAOA - High-School: Alternate Universe.

''[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=12989439490A51860100&page=1 We Are Our Avatars, High School AU]]'' (full title ''ITT: We Are Our Avatars - High School: Alternate Universe'') is a [[PlayByPostGame Play By Post Forum Game]] on the TVTropesForum and a spin-off of the original [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=i9k31ypluou9s5j9d2w7n23k&page=1 We Are Our Avatars]]

Originally made because of several players interest from the original WAOA, a second topic was created. At the moment, it's still relatively new with nearly 11,000 posts but is steadily growing in size. At the moment, there's been no real 'arcs' or any real plot to follow so players can usually leap right in, provided they [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=12989462230A92424400&page=1#5 read the rules]] and at least [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=12989443370A70055300&page=1 introduce themselves.]]

Obviously, this page is in dire need of WikiMagic and help in order to grow. [[Characters/WAOAHighSchoolAU Character Sheet]] is up, but Crowning Moments of [[Funny/WAOAHighSchoolAU Funny]], [[Heartwarming/WAOAHighSchoolAU Heartwarming]] and [[Awesome/WAOAHighSchoolAU Awesome]] have also been added, as well as [[YMMV/WAOAHighSchoolAU YMMV]].

Oh. And the obvious [[Tearjerker/WAOAHighSchoolAU Tearjerker]] page too. Still needs a lot of work though.

! '''This thread provides examples of...'''

* AccidentalPervert: Dave teleports using his handmade device, into Cirno's room as she's changing.([[OfficialCouple with Mitch there]])
** This is not even the first time though, In fact the first time he uses the device he ends up in Umbra's dorm... while she is getting dressed.
** And Arcie... with Heiress there. Let's just say it's been a RunningGag and leave it at that.
* AlternateUniverse: [[{{CaptainObvious}} Naturally.]] It's even said in the [[{{TitleDrop}} title of the topic!]]
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent
* AntiMagic: [[{{ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin}} Magic Canceler]] is capable of taking away EVERYONE's magical abilities and powers should it raise its aura. Thankfully, this isn't all the time.
* {{Asspull}}: How Mayuri escaped regular punishments. Nobody wanted to kill him(at first).
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Mana, per the usual. Lillian is a much smaller version of this, albeit she's around Goro's height.
* AttentionWhore: Falken to the highest degree.
* AxesAtSchool: Mitch carries a [[CoolGun FN P90 personal defense weapon]] around. Partly as a SecurityBlanket, and partly as a self-defense tool. Mordecai also has a revolver, a sniper rifle, and a submachine gun, but they never use it unless necessary.
** Travis carries around his beamsword all the time.
** Shadow has his Gatling Gun, which is no longer loaded, but acts as his SecurityBlanket, [[CompensatingForSomething mostly because he lacks a big gun]].
* BuildingOfAdventure: Mostly everything happens in the School.(both versions)
** MiddleOfNowhereStreet: Blatant in both versions of the roleplays. Notably, the second version even goes so far as having the unnamed School actually in a random dimensional world with landscapes. How many of them are named? None.
* ButtMonkey: Travis Touchdown. As usual.
** Crino is a living one. Created by @/GearLeader's [[SpellMyNameWithAnS inability to spell Cirno right.]]
* CuddleBug: A rather commonplace trait with many of the student populace.
* CharacterDevelopment: It seems to be small at the moment, but it's noticeable in some characters.
* [[{{ChildSoldiers}} Child Soldier]]: Zeke. He's only fourteen and known as the Colbat Blue Major.
* {{Crossover}}: A direct one with [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/RolePlay/WeAreOurAdventuringAvatars We Are Our Adventuring Avatars.]]
* DysfunctionJunction: There's probably very FEW students at this school who DON'T have problems, mental or otherwise.
* {{Deader than dead}} : Mayuri, [[BoltOfDivineRetribution by being erased from existence by God!Arcie]]
* [[{{EmotionlessGirl}} Emotionless Boy]]: Zeke. Done deliberately on his part as considers it will get in the way of his mission.
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[VideoGame/{{Portal2}} Wheatley]] makes a little gag appearance, still at the school, when there's few people there.
* '''ExtranormalInstitute''': With elements of
** AcademyOfAdventure
** [[AllGhoulsSchool Generally Non-human/Half-human school]]
** HeroAcademy
** WizardingSchool
* {{Fanservice}}: Weakly indulged in. Atleast outside of [[MrFanservice V]]o[[SoulCalibur l]][[FanDisservice d]][[CasualKink o]], anyway.
* Foreshadowing[=/=]FutureShadowing: Shares some characters with [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/RolePlay/WeAreOurAdventuringAvatars We Are Our Adventuring Avatars]], albeit in younger forms, so allusions to events to come in this game tend to pop up.
* GeniusLoci: The school is sentient, and comments on the events inside on more than one occasion. Only Sapph can hear it, though.
* [[{{IllGirl}} Ill Boy]]: Wren. And when we mean ill, we mean his medication is the only thing preventing him from suffering a horrible, horrible death.
* KilledOffForReal: Mayuri, Hand, Foot, But(t), Various Zombies(perhaps), Random Cheerleader, Nikola.
* '''OfficialCouple''': Cirno x Mitch, Joshua x Sugar, Dave x Arcie, Heiress x Hilarity(special note is that they really don't act like one), [[OT3 Maggie x Keyla x Aika]], Asagi x Zelgadis, Imca x Luca, Wren x "Raven", Umbra x Sapph, Selve x Lillian, Shadow x Shizuha, Mara x Chifusa, Alex x Shaun...and it just keeps on growing.
** Michelle x Gill is heading that way, but aren't actually girlfriend/boyfriend as of yet.
* OtakuSurrogate: Sanae and Zinda are Mecha Otakus. Known for having a collection of anime and manga along with plenty of model kits. They usually favor the edgy Zaku [=IIs=] over dolls.
* PubertySuperpower: This is increasingly common now, specifically with Gill. Most of Cly's VideoGame/{{Touhou}} characters that weren't already powered also recieved this treatment, [[SubvertedTrope although it was due to outside circumstances.]]
* ReedRichardsIsUseless: David Shine makes useless things half the time instead of going to classes. Usually.
* RunningGag: The most infamous one is people bumping into eachother.
** Between Mitch and Cirno is when CoitusEnsues. Kept offscreen for obvious reasons.
** Much like the first one, Shadow is now starting to hit the walls. Including getting ''embedded'' in them.
*** Which leads to Sapph getting a headache whenever the school is damaged.
** Travis' failure to hit on anyone without getting a rude reaction. This may be related to his ButtMonkey status, however.
** Cirno getting knocked out.
** Heiress getting flustered at the slightest embarassment or perverted thing.
** For a short time, Dave's teleport machine kept getting the wrong rooms, often getting him a slap to the face or another punishment.
** Gear(the troper) actually spelling words wrong is a meta example. Nobody knows why but the Troper himself.
** Lillian giving people [[MarshmallowHell marshmallow hells]]. Now that she has a boyfriend who's one head shorter than her, it's only going to get worse.
* ScaryBlackMan: Walter Fredrick gets mistaken for one.
* ShipTease: Holy crap... it just goes on and on and on...
** A more notorious example is Sapph x School. Yes, the architecture itself.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: The students over the Teachers. Somewhat justified as they're the main focus of this game.
** Some more notorious examples are Imca, Shadow, Gill, Wren, Michelle, Mitch, Lillian, Garcie, and Sapph.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Kurotsuchi Mayuri, before [[BoltOfDivineRetribution being wiped from existance]].
* {{Tsundere}}: Keyla, hoo boy.
