"It's a classic small town. I mean, when was the last time you heard of someone leaving Pageson for good?"
Off the Page and Into Life is a Tumblr based roleplaying blog centered around the idea that classic literary characters (ranging from the tales of King Arthur to the works of Mark Twain) have been reincarnated as residents of a small town known as Pageson. The blog mainly focuses on the interactions between the students and staff of Pageson High, and their various romantic and non-romantic relationships. The RP was dead for awhile, but it was recently rebooted and the Reset Button was hit, starting everything over again. The reboot is called Chapter Two.In Chapter Two, the plot was revamped, providing a backstory. This backstory gave us knowledge of Grimmearth, which is where all the literary characters originated, and an explanation as to why, exactly, the literary characters are being reincarnated, and what the Storyteller's problem is. Read it here.There is a character sheet, so all character tropes should go there. It's under construction, so feel free to pitch in!
Acting for Two: Currently there are eight active roleplayers, and twelve active characters. That alone should tell you something.
Angry Guard Dog: Toto tries to be this, but he seems to forget he's smaller than most puppies.
Bad Date: Henry and Gail have one that ends in her breaking his nose.
Beta Couple: Emily/Gloria (Glemi) to Gail/Henry (Gailry).
I Know Karate: Emily went to school on a boxing scholarship and won't let you forget it!
Love Dodecahedron: Let's see... Gail and Henry are together and very happy, but Gail may or may not like Megan, who may or may not be with Matt. Matt is hopelessly in love with Megan but Megan isn't sure. Terrence likes Henry and Henry lied and said he liked him back so they wouldn't stop being friends, but Henry is smitten with Gail. Gloria and Emily only have eyes for each other, but Frederick likes Gloria and constantly hits on Emily, and Megan likes Emily. Got all that?
Darker and Edgier: Much more serious than Chapter One, though there's still plenty of fluff to go around.
Deadpan Snarker: Again, damn near everyone. Right now the most obvious is probably either Gail or Sherman.
Don't Go in the Woods: Everyone avoids the local woods, nicknamed the Hanging Woods, due to a local legend. It's unknown whether the woods are really dangerous, probably because no one wants to be the one to check.
According to the Gail/Henry para "Placing Bets," it is indeed dangerous.
Dreaming of Times Gone By: It's mentioned in the full plot that the Storyteller tries this in an attempt to get the residents of Pageson to remember who they are.
Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Gossip Girl took a brief hiatus (which became a permanent absence) because her mun was on a trip to Italy. When discussing how quiet GG has been lately, Gail suggests she took a vacation to Italy.
Love Triangle: Subverted. Colleen worries that there's a type four going on between herself, Gail, and Henry (with herself as "a," Henry as "b," and Gail as "c"), but as Gail informs her, Gail and Henry can't stand each other.
Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: In an interesting gender-swapped version, Terrence and Henry are practically the poster children for it. Not to mention Emily and Gloria are a pretty good played-straight example. So are Gail and Tim, though no one knows about the "two girl" part.
Stepford Suburbia: Pageson, though it's not a typical suburb. It's pretty clear no one really likes living there, and what seems like a quaint little small town out of the 1950s actually holds some pretty dark happenings.
Teens Are Monsters: Played with. They do some morally questionable things, but none of them seem to be completely bad.
