PROLOGUE – THE 100TH CLASS OF UTOPIA ACADEMY

Looking back at the day, it was a pretty crazy day filled with lots of events. I mean, for starters, I woke up very early, at around 6 AM. After all, I needed to prepare everything for any potential high school entrance examinations.

First thing I did was to clean my room. I did not want harmful bacteria to start culminating in my bedroom.

Second, I checked all of my textbooks and studying materials. I had to arrange my scattered books. Since I studied for potential high school entrance exams.

Third, I headed downstairs and got some dog food to feed Dino. For your information, he's my adorable Pomeranian. He's definitely the cutest animal alive.

Fourth, I went to the kitchen to help out my mother cook breakfast. My mother always wakes up early as well to prepare our breakfast, so it's only natural that I help her out.

After helping out my mother and waking up my brother, I went back to my room and checked my E-mail. Mostly invitations to science high school, some offers of scholarship, and… a Utopia Academy invitation letter.

I blinked once. Then twice. Then thrice. After that, I silently meditate just to calm down my over reactive nerves. Well, it's a natural reaction to be nervous and excited when one is invited to attend the most famous school in the entire world. Well, the school itself isn't actually on Earth, but it's still famous here. Yes, that's right. I got an acceptance letter to attend the one, and only…

Utopia Academy. Literally the apex of education, the very mention of this outrageously extravagant and massive school sends normal students packing. Why? Well first of all, it's in outer space. Specifically on the moon. Whoever thought of the idea that the best school in the entire planet should be on the moon is pretty insane. No, scratch that. Really insane. Second reason is that Utopia Academy accepts only the best students. Meaning, you have to the best in your field. And to make things worse, they only accept 18 students each school year. Talk about exclusive. And I am a part of those 18. And oh, Utopia Academy is now celebrating its 100th year! It's been around since the year 2900. It has a great deal of history, and has always sent out the best graduates, and they become great people in the world. Like our current Prime Minister, Yoshitaka Imaishi. He was the "Utopic Presidential Heir" during his time as a student of Utopia Academy. Or even the world famous movie star Joe Davis! He's an American, but managed to enter Utopia Academy as the "Utopic Movie Star"!

So you're probably wondering what the field that I'm the best in is. Well first of all, my name is Miku Shishido. I am a simple high school girl who sees the world in a more complicated way than most teenagers. Well maybe simple is a lie. You see, I am in Utopia Academy as the "Utopic Geneticist". My skill in genetic engineering and science was enough for me to be recognized as the best in the world. I showed the world my first genetically revived dinosaur 4 years ago, in 2996 at the World Science Convention that took place in London. All of the famous scientists in the world were there to witness my most extravagant work. Looking back at that moment, it is a good thing that the I revived didn't attack anyone… But enough about myself. To be invited to enroll in Utopia Academy is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for any high school student out there. So I instantly took the chance. No one in the right mind would decline that offer.

But since I'll be in outer space, I can only go home once a week at most. I'll miss my adorable Dino. My younger brother too. And my parents too, of course. I also heard that the dorms serve top-class food and have state-of-the-art facilities.

So after composing myself, I stormed off my room, showed my family the E-mail and of course there was much rejoicing. At least I knew what high school to attend. So I spent the rest of the day readying for next week. I literally cannot contain my excitement for next week! So with all those thoughts in my head, I sleep for the night.


Apex here! Here we are, in yet ANOTHER SYOC in the DR fandom. I just couldn't resist the urge to write one, so there. Also, apologies to anyone following my other fanfic, the crossover story "Danganronpa: Multiversal Despair". I just kinda lost interest in writing it overall, but I will return to it soon. (Very soon) Right now, it's in a hiatus. SO! Enough about things that isn't about this fic. There will be a total of 18 "Utopic" students. Now to establish order, we need rules around these parts. READ THESE GUIDELINES CAREFULLY.

UPDATE* I'm taking someone's suggestion to lower the class roster. So, I'll make it 18 instead. Again, no rush! I'll be choosing the best I can find!

RULES

1. NO OC SUBMISSIONS IN THE REVIEWS. I'm truly sorry for the ones without accounts, but how will I ever contact you about your character? I will ask a lot of things regarding your OC (I want to make them in-character). If you want to submit a character, then make an account.

2. If your OC dies, then I'm truly sorry for your loss. This is a Danganronpa fanfiction; not really in the same universe, but still a DR fic. No buts, okay? Besides, when you submit an OC to me, it's like you acknowledge the fact that your OC may be a culprit or a victim.

3. THIS IS IMPORTANT. NO REUSED OCs. Seriously, just don't bother. I am a frequent lurker of the DR Fanfiction archive, so if I see that the OC you submitted is in another fic, then I will reject your OC on the spot. However, if you really want to submit an old OC for various reasons, (Your OC died in another fic; the story your OC is in is never going to update again, etc.) then at least rename them and change their appearance and/or talent. But again, this is discouraged. Please try to submit a fresh, new character as much as possible.

4. Canon talents are allowed. However, try to be unique. Having a unique talent boosts the chance of acceptance. If you want, I can give you some talents. This was originally going to be a story consisting entirely of my OCs, so I got a lot of talents in my mind.

5. As Utopia Academy is a Japanese institution, I will only accept Japanese OCs. However, I may accept one or two foreigner/s, depending on the quality. But I would like more Japanese OCs, please.

6. Be detailed. Don't just give out a few descriptive words for a character's personality. Give your OC some flavor. And please describe their appearance well, too. It doesn't hurt to be detailed, right?

7. Do the research. Is there a particular talent you want your OC to have? Don't be lazy. Research. I will also be researching the final roster of talents, so that I can understand them better.

8. One OC per user for now, unless you want to submit siblings. If I get few submissions, then I will allow the others who already submitted an OC to submit another one.

9. Lastly, be creative and have fun making your OC. Like what Albert Einstein said: "Imagination is more important than Knowledge". Don't rush your OCs as well. I want well-thought out characters. We all do. And no, this is not first-come first-serve. Take your time, because time is gold.

Now, the OC Form! It's also in my profile, by the way. You know, so that you can copy-paste… So go, make some OCs! Apex out!
