A progressive romance roleplay on Rai Island.

Welcome to Rai Island!


This is a progressive
(Anime Style) Roleplay Forum!


This Roleplay takes place within the sandy white shores of Rai Island, which is located in the American territory of the vast Atlantic Ocean. Rai Island is known worldwide for its remarkably brilliant boarding school, Valevay High. The students that attend and manage to survive its rigorous courses and earn a diploma are highly sought after for their knowledge and talent, seeing as only the most gifted and intelligent students graduate with their class. Aside from Valevay there are a number of schools your character can attend (from primary to college) located throughout the island! Keep in mind you need more than books smarts to survive Rai Island. You’ve got to be strong-willed and able to handle yourself in tough situations… not all the island dwellers are neighborly; it does have its handful of ruffians. Keep your head up, your wits sharp, and most of all have fun!

Kyren Ari Stills

Hello there my fellow Roleplayers!
Sorry for the delay but "Mr. Rodeo" had too much personality for just one month! Anyways lets kick him to the curb now and welcome our newest and most anticipated character, Mr. Moody himself,

Kyren Stills

From the words of our lovely Sui, "Like a true Cancer, he is moody and reserved!"

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

True this young man is rather rough around the edges. Far from your "friendly" average highschooler. Secluding himself majority of the time Kyren immerses his attention and talent into his sketchbook. However his stoic aura is shaken only when his adorkable little sister, Emma is in his presence! If your lucky (very very very lucky) when she shows up you may even see him crack a smile. And who knows he may even have a smile that makes girl's swoon! But it's usually gone just a quickly as it appeared.

Okay, lets just get it out of the way and say this boy has an undeniable sister complex! Unwavering in fact! After loosing their father at a young age Kyren promised to protect her in his Dads place. He spends the majority of his time making sure Emma is happy and healthy! Also for her own good he battles to keep the Samo strays far away from her. Now Kyren isn't ALWAYS, as his creator may claim, a Drama King! He can be very compassionate and more than willing to treat you as family if he finds you trustworthy and you become close enough with him.

So, some advice when crossing paths with this eyeliner wearing teen. Keep your loud antic to yourself they certainly don't impress him (just ask Lena)! Keep sugar out of his reach, it makes his do very very bad things! ;) && Don't and I mean DON'T touch his sister!
Follow these simple rules, and you might survive!

Now off to the Interview! This one should be a HOOT!

Okay, so we know that over the past several months there has been very little activity in the roleplay! But really that wasn't the intial point in creating this forum in the first place.
Rai Island is what brought us all together. It's our home away from home, so to speak! We are not just a Forum full of gifted and creative writers . . . however a place full of wacky and crazy friends ;)
A place where we are creating unforgettable memories!


Even though we are constantly changing and still knee deep in finding ourselves in the world; we know that through the tears that fall and the smiles that grace our faces we will always have each other! Because no matter where our lives take us, nothing will change so much that we are not all friends still!

&& We will always have RaiIsland to come back to! Our Island ♥
Okay, okay enough of the cheesiness!
I love you CRAZY ladies!

    "Yes, thank you" She said blushing as she took it from him; trying and failing to ignore the fact that he was laughing at her and had all but said he thought about her in that way most of the time. Mentally she knew that she better just get used to things like this, after all, she already knew he liked to poke fun at her and their....attraction to each other wasn't exactly new either given their first meeting ~something that still left her embarrassed beyond belief considering they had barely known each other~ And she knew more was bound to happen anyway since they've been hanging out with each other so much lately, so the rosette knew she should really just resign herself to rolling with whatever the Wilder threw at her at this point or she'd blow a fuse before long.

    At the very least, she now had a cover up and wouldn't have to worry about proclaiming her arousal to him to the world anymore. She knew it didn't help John's problem at all ~if he even considered it one~ but unlike her, he seemed more than ok with walking around without a shirt on.

    Slipping the worn jacket on confirmed her suspicion that'd it easily hide her state of undress. It was obviously too large for her small frame; the sleeves completely covered her hands and the whole jacket just seemed to be barely hang onto her shoulders. But she was more than happy for the cover and getting to wrap herself in her favorite Wilder's rather addicting aroma was also a plus.

    "So...shall we head in?" She asked, reaching her hand out to his in a silent truce of "I'll stop freaking out for now, if you stop pushing my buttons".

    He took her hand in his and started walking towards the door, figuring she wanted to simply hold hands. "Of course! You're gonna like this place. They've got some of the best food on the whole damn island." He explained as he pulled her through the door, "You'll like the owners too. Real nice people, sweet as pie."

    Once the two of them were inside, John pulled her towards the familiar booth that he and his family would sit in every time they came in. It was a large booth, naturally, as the boys would squeeze themselves into it upon each visit and never get into any trouble. In fact, they'd all been coming here since they were in diapers. And the now elderly couple who ran the place would always give each Wilder a huge slice of homemade pie after they'd finished their meals. No charge. Perhaps that was why they'd drop by on a weekly basis.

    And once he and his lovely lady were seated, out came dear old Mrs. Huggle. She was only in her fifties, but she still seemed like a doting grandma to everyone who came in. As the little old lady shuffled over she stopped in front of the table and smiled, her face lighting up in recognition. "Why, if it isn't my little Johnny Wilder! How you doin', honey?" She said as she leaned her chubby body over and planted a smooch on his forehead, "And I see you brought a pretty girl with you! What's your name, hun?" The little old lady turned to Celi with a warm, friendly smile.

    "Hello Ma'am, my name's Celi, it's a pleasure to meet you" Celi shyly, but politely, replied to the woman's incredibly welcoming tone of her and John. Although she was a bit startled by it at first, there was no way she could keep herself from smiling back at the friendly older woman, her enchanting and warm personality was just too infectious to resist.

    But the designer had to say, in all the times that she had hung out with John, this had to be one of the warmest and most genuine welcomes the two of had ever received. Perhaps he frequented this place far more often than he had let on? That certainly would explain why this kindly woman seemed to know he was much more than just a hard-ass with a bad reputation, and why she had no trouble at all with giving him such affectionate nickname as she would her own grandson. "Nice you know he at least has some people who aren't afraid of him"

    "That's a lovely name, my dear. Welcome to Huggle Diner, we've been in business for nearly thirty years now and I'd like to think we have a pretty solid menu." Mrs. Huggle said and produced a couple menus for the young couple, "I'll give you a minute or two to decide on drinks. Be right back, you little lovebirds." With that, she gave Celi a knowing wink and shuffled back into the kitchen to grab a tray of food for a nearby table. Once she had left, John sat forward in the booth and opened the menus for the two of them. Inside each menu, an extensive list of food and drink were listed. They had every kind of food that could be thought of when it came to home cooking, and even had a large allergen section for people with sensitivities to certain foods. "So... whatcha gettin'?" John asked, looking up at her over the menu.

    Celi ducked behind her menu at Mrs. Huggles knowing wink, her face blooming a bright shade of red as she pretended to be skimming the text in front of her. She had a gut feeling the older woman caught on to a lot more than her "sweet as pie" disposition let on, and if that knowing wink was anything to go by, then she may have already picked up on the rosette's growing attraction to the man across from her. Something that had Celi more anxious than she would have liked...

    "Huh? Oh! T-the French toast, yes! The french toast with a bowl of fruit looks good. How about you?" She answered, just barely having heard him over her own mental musings and she mentally cursed herself for stuttering. "Great, way to play it cool Celi..."

    It was silly of her to feel embarrassed about it, her attraction to him that is. But the last time Celi had shown any interest in a guy was way back when she had first moved to the island in high school! She just...didn't know what to do... She could handle their flirting, their heated talks and gazes, and even when they got rather physical with each other. But actual romance, all the feelings, was a completely foreign concept to the work-prone rosette. It didn't help at all that she had little to no clue how the Wilder in question even felt about her.

    Did he lust for her? Maybe, probably, men lusted after her all the time after all. Did he think of her as girlfriend potential? Hell if she knew! She didn't even know what John considered a girlfriend anyway considering his mile long reputation as a lady killer. Although seeing as how they've gotten near physical on several occasions in the short time that they've known each other, the rosette was pretty certain he was attracted to her in some way at least, perhaps he saw her as a FWB?

    That....wasn't exactly a good thing, but hell if she couldn't bring herself to say it was a bad thing either. The one thing Celi did know however, was that John at least cared for her as a friend, but that was something he'd never so much as said as he implied through action...

    So she was basically back to square one, anxious about her own growing feelings and even more clueless about John's.

    The Huggle Diner was probably one of John's most favorite places on all Rai Island. It was one of the few places he could just let go, not keep up his badass persona, to just be candid and enjoy himself. In fact, it was one of the few places that the family could go to and have a great meal. And the free pie was top notch. He was absolutely certain that his lovely lady would find this place every bit as wonderful as the rest of his family did. When he folded his menu back up and slid it to the side, his pale blue eyes focused on the object of his desire.

    Celi...

    The beautiful designer with her soft, lush pink tresses sat across from him. She looked radiant. Well, to him she was always the most breathtaking sight he'd ever seen. But then again, he was just some dirty hooligan. Some punk that dropped out of high school to get a job and support his family. He felt so lucky that she'd ever decided to give him any attention at all. The look on her face said she was anxious and he couldn't really understand why. He leaned forward and placed his hand atop hers. "What's eatin' ya, honey?"

    It took every ounce of her control not to scream "NOTHING!!!" at the top of her lungs like the crazed loon she probably looked like when he gently placed his hand on hers. His hand was so much larger compared to hers that it made her melt inside when he engulfed it in his, the difference between them amazed her sure but it was the comfort and protectiveness and the sheer fact that it was John holding her hand that had Celi internally gushing like a schoolgirl.

    While her hands had been carefully maintained over the years with lotions, and oils, and scrubs to keep them soft and pristine despite the toil her job put on them. His were roughened from years of manually labor and fighting, his entire life was mapped out in various scars, burns, and calluses that scattered all over his hands like a battlefield and displayed proudly for the world to see like a medal of honor.

    As it was, Celi was sure she looked utterly ridiculous to him right now, sitting there completely red in the face and eyes looking every where except at him, all while internally swooning over the fact that he was simply holding her hand. But how could she possibly not do that when he was giving her a near heart attack over here by being totally sweet and adorable like that!

    "Does he even realize that he can totally pull off the curious puppy look? Cause he's doing a damn job job of it right now!"

    But he had asked her a question, a good honest question about how she was doing because she looked absolutely batty, while looking so damn adorable and acting so damn sweet that it was giving her a sugar high! Oh damn him and his fucking puppy dog eyes! How did he even do that as a full grown man?!

    "I'm fine, really! Just peachy!" She managed to squeak out after what felt like an eternity, before her shoulders slumped and she actually sighed over how ridiculous she sounded. "Actually...I'm kinda...nervous..." She awkwardly mumbled, her free hand not having anything to fiddle with in her state of nervousness except for a stray lock of hair that she kept twisting this way and that. But she was on a roll now! Sorta? So she may as well keep going and at least tell him some of why she was so nervous...

    "It's stupid and silly and you'll probably laugh, but...I've never...actually...been on a date before......with a guy....ever...."

    He didn't miss a beat. "So, have you dated girls before then? Because I'm cool with that."

    Celi almost choked on her own spit at the Wilder's sudden, completely unexpected and totally blunt response to her embarrassing confession. How the f*ck had he even gotten THAT idea in his head?! She was 100% straight thank you very much! And now thanks to him, she was back to being completely red in the face, only this time from the embarrassment of his assumption.

    "No! I've never been on a date with anyone unless you count my sister, and I hardly have a little sister complex like that!"

    The rosette was a fashion designer true and true, and while she knew she could become a borderline "seductive temptress with a kink as a mistress" as her friends so lovingly joked with her, whenever she found an adorable girl she just had to dress up, she by no means swung in that direction no matter how much Gala tried to tempt her to experiment.

    "Besides I've been busy with my work for as long as I can remember, and even if I wasn't busy it's not like I've ever met any decent guys who didn't just want me for my looks. The only time I'd ever come close was way back when I first moved to the island before I started high school and that chance disappeared almost as soon as it came"
