IC: Octavia Moore walked throughout the facility either furiously scribbling observations on her clipboard or surveilling the rows of containment cells on each side of her. She was a tall and skinny woman with long, straight, red hair, rounded glasses that always slid off her nose, a stern no-nonsense face created by stress, and she always had at least one glove on. To her Higher Ups, she was the perfect example of a scientist. Octavia stopped and looked at her and ticking watch on her ungloved hand and squinted. It was 10:00 AM, which meant that all patients were in their cells, ready for their examination. She continued walking and scanning left to right to make sure all of the patients were in their rooms. Some patients were angrily clawing and pounding at the clear plastic door, some were simply crying, some kept themselves occupied by playing around with some of the materials in their cell, and some just simply sat on their sleeping cot, staring at nothing. It was all the same to Octavia. She had become desensitized to it; the more you walk down the hall, the more you see the patients with the more noticeable symptoms, yada, yada, yada. Octavia had done it a million times before. It was just another day at GreenGlen Laboratories.
OOC: So this is a jump-in thread (meaning you can just start RPing without making a form) about GreenGlen Laboratories, a lab that houses, studies, and experiments on patients with unique “symptoms”, those being either symptoms that caused their appearance to look less human, or symptoms that give them superhuman abilities. These symptoms can range from minor ones that are usually caused by genetic mutations, to fairly noticeable and fairly unstable symptoms that may have been caused by the mysterious “Incident” that no one in the facilities talks about. I only have a few rules for this thread. 1. You can either play as a patient or a scientist. 2. All FF rules apply. 3. No overpowered or unbalanced characters. 4. At least one paragraph per post. 5. Since this is a jump in thread and you don’t make any forms, your character’s name, appearance, and symptoms (if you’re a patient) must be mentioned IC in your first post. Your character’s personality and history will be revealed to other characters throughout the thread based on interactions. 6. No “let’s escape the lab” plots. I want this thread to take place entirely in the lab and be about the developments and interactions between the characters. 7. Please have a decent muse for this thread. I don’t want it to be where someone joins and they never post. 8. If you have any more questions, ask them in a private message sent to yours truly. 9. If you’re a patient, your symptoms can either be turning into a monster, developing superhuman powers, or a mixture of both. 10. No one liners or consistent spelling mistakes. 11. This one’s obvious, but you can’t use an already existing character. You can have your character BASED on someone, but they can’t 100% be that character. 12. This is a semi-advanced to advanced thread, so make sure your posts are long and detailed. I would also prefer if you have had any experiences RPing semi to advanced threads prior to this thread. 13. I would like the number of patients to scientists to be equal. 14. This thread is PG to PG-13, and will tackle some minor dark topics, like mental illnesses and human experimentation. Despite this, this thread will never get too dark or in detail, with minor gore and no sex scenes. That being said, please handle these topics with respect and taste. 15. Have fun.

Unlike most cells, the patients’ cells do not have metal bars replacing one of the walls, but instead have a clear sheet of plastic that serves as both the door and the window. Inside the cells there’s a sleeping cot, a countertop, some cabinets, a private bathroom with a toilet and a sink, and some random materials that custom fit the user’s personality. All of the cells are right next to each other in a large hallway, with cells on each side.
The cafeteria is the place where the patients eat. It’s like a typical school or prison cafeteria, with long tables patients can choose to sit at, with a lunch line behind it where patients can recieve their meals from. Nearby, there’s an employee lunchroom where scientists can eat meals and monitor any patients that are in the cafeteria.
Training Rooms are large empty rooms that patients go in to perform tests. Whatever is in the room depends on what type of test the patient is supposed to perform. There is a large area above the training room where scientists can observe and take notes regarding the patient’s training, much like an observation deck in an operating theater.
The Lab is a simple series of rooms with counters, cabinets, and all sorts of equipment like beakers, syringes, clipboards, and tray tables. It is where patients go to be experimented on, and is considered by patients to be the scariest room in the building.
Outside of GreenGlen Labs
Patients are permitted to going outside of GreenGlen Laboratories, even if they were to stay on its property. The only exception is that GreenGlen will occasionally let some patients outside to a fenced part of the property to be tested.
Scientists are usually obligated to switch specific tasks and roles with each other each and every day. One of them is that every day, one different scientist needs to make the day’s P.A. announcements so patients can be reminded about what they should be doing and also news alerts. All P.A. announcements are recorded in the P.A. room, a simple room with a desk, a chair, a speaker phone, and other office supplies.
While the scientists at GreenGlen Laboratories are mostly out and about, following the patients, sometimes they need to do simple independent work, usually involving uploading patients’ data from their notes to the lab’s database. This is where the employee offices come in. Simple office rooms lined up next to each other for each individual scientist.
While most employees drive home at the end of their shift, some prefer to stay in the labs through the employee bedrooms. Like the cells and the employee offices, the employee bedrooms are a set of bedrooms aligned next to each other that scientists can stay in. Each scientist is assigned their own personal bedroom that no one else can use. They’re slightly bigger than a normal bedroom, though they don’t have any other parts to it besides typical bedroom wear.
The Front Desk
The Front Desk is a small, crowded office room that is one of the first room you walk into at GreenGlen. Scientists and Hazmats use it to clock in and out of work and even use it to request to send and recieve messages to other employees by taking to the lab’s crotchety old secretary, Ms. Val.
Patient Daily Schedule
8:30 AM: Wake Up
All patients must wake up at this time and get ready before 8:35.
8:35 AM: Shower
Patients must head to their respective gender’s shower room and cleanse themselves.
9:00 AM: Breakfast in the Cafeteria
Everyone must eat in the cafeteria and can only eat the food from the cafeteria.
10:00 AM: Examination
All patients must be in their cells by this time, so scientists can ask them questions about themselves and check on how they are today.
11:00 AM: Testing
Patients are required to head to the training rooms to perform different tests using their mutations, or sometimes just their knowledge and skills.
2:00 PM: Lunch in the Cafeteria
3:00 PM: Experimentation
Each patient must head to one of the lab rooms to be experimented on. Unlike the tests, these will be painful as they involve scientists observing how patients and their mutations react to different things
5:00 PM: Dinner in the Cafeteria
6:00 PM: Freetime
Patients are allowed to unwind and do whatever they want, as long as they stay within their cells. There’s some materials they can use for entertainment and special tablets that allow them to video chat with whatever patient they want, regardless of how far away they are from their cell.
9:00 PM: Lights Out
All patients must be in their sleeping cots, asleep regardless of their sleeping habits or schedule.
Failure to complete the schedule correctly or breaking a rule during the day will result in punishment.
Symptom-A genetic mutation that causes an individual supernatural effects, either by turning them into an unnatural creature, giving them superhuman powers, or a combination of both.
Patient-Anyone that has a symptom.
Hazmats-GreenGlens’ security. They guard the laboratory and handle any rowdy patients. They are called Hazmats due to the fact they are clad completely in a hazmat suit whenever they are at GreenGlen.
The Higher-Ups-The Higher-Ups are a mysterious group of people who created and funded GreenGlen Laboratories. No one knows much about them, nor do they interact with the lab that much. No one has ever seen them visit. The only interaction they have with the staff is when they need someone to come to their headquarters for an important meeting.
The Incident-A mysterious incident that no one likes talking about. All that should be known about it is that it caused most of the symptoms.
