Part 6/8: Jake English; Adventurer.
At the age of 15, instead of entering a high school, the kids of Acquariet enter a work study. They must choose a job that they will study under until they became a legal adult at 18. At which point they will be asked either to stay or leave. If asked to stay, they can decide to either continue working there, or look elsewhere for work.In the case of Jake,
I imagine since he’s without guardian at all, that he’s kind of self taught himself, and has had a huge interest in the little ship things that float above the city. So he always is climbing all the way up there and trying to talk them into taking him on as an apprentice.What is Acquaristuck?
Acquaristuck is pretty much me designing/maybe doing other random shit involving Homestuck characters and my original world (which is honestly more specifically a city) called Acquariet. Why? 'CAUSE I CAN AND I'VE WANTED TO FOR A WHILE OKAY DON'T JUDGE ME
Acquariet a floating city with a huge tree in the center that magically produces water—so much water in fact that most of the inner city is full of it, creating a setting similar to Venice. The outer city is more built into stone walls and, where the inner city is very well kempt and upper class-y (wow my word usage is so beautiful), the outer city is more like a ghetto.
There is a serious separation in class between the two parts of the city; those from the inner city never venture out into the outer parts, and those from the outer city would never dream of taking step into the inner.
Each part has its prejudices against the other and therefor rarely interacts.
