@  Tasha Koval : (18 April 2014 - 01:41 PM) Would you rather that I yell at some stranger and get us escorted out of the proximity by police, or would you rather be the target of my anger? (:
@  Johnse DeLeon : (18 April 2014 - 01:23 PM) Yeah, sure you had a great time... yelling at me the minute we got there.
@  Tasha Koval : (18 April 2014 - 12:48 PM) Omgd, yes! Have a great time! (And totally leave him to go enjoy it yourself, if necessary).

Welcome

The Draft is set in a futuristic, dystopian setting where the government, known as The Trust, controls all aspects of every day life. They decide what kind of job you have, tell you where you are going to live and what color car you are going to drive, and most of all, who you are going to marry.

Heavily influenced by Christian theology, The Trust has outlawed any and everything that they felt was destructive towards marriages, including love. Marriage is based on a careful system of matching that uses formulas to pair personalities together and of course, taking into account what the man finds most attractive.

It's 2188 and this has become a normal part of life for the citizens of America, considering that The Trust has been in power for over a hundred years now. But every dystopian society has a resistance against the controlling figures and the question is, do you fight it or favor it? But no matter what, you cannot fight The Draft.

This board is RATED R. There is the possibility of strong language, drugs, violence, and scenes of a sexual nature.

We already know he's going to be a big boy. Zoe (who did all the work this morning) is resting comfortably and being as amazing as she always is. All in all, today was a good day.
