So. As I'm thinking so far, the story will open with Claire's anguished "YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!" as her mother reads aloud the fact that the two schools are merging. She then tells Angeline, who hadn't yet known. Claire spends the night at her house as they plan on what exactly they're going to do.
Meanwhile, Maude doesn't really care. She's busy working on summer homework that she put off til the last minute. She knows but doesn't care too much about the S/A rivalry. School is in a week or so by now.
this is a kind of complicated idea, so any help is appreciated.
So, basically, there are two rival schools. Originally they were called Stockton and Avarice, but I'm not sure if I'll change the names yet.
Anyway, due to budget cuts, the schools have to merge. Thing is, the students HATE each other despite their respectively small populations. It's usually light harassment, but sometimes it gets bad. And I mean bad.
Nonetheless, the schools merge. Stockton-Avarice boasts a yearly musical, Homecoming Games, dances, the usual for a highschool. The musical has two teachers to help mitigate the students, one from Stockton and one from Avarice. They're trying to help ease relations in the school and decide to do a musical where the four main characters are on two different sides.
