Creating Your Own Secret Society

    Create a secret or a secret mission. A secret society must have something to protect.
  2. Image titled Create a Secret Society Step 2
    Read a few clique-like books, like the clique series by Lisi Harrison, for some background information, although, maybe not so mean like they were. Get any number of your friends to read these books. Privately talk with one of your closest friends whom you know will love the idea of starting a secret society.

    Think of a name. You and your closest friend should discuss what your secret society should be called. Also discuss who you will induct. Remember, even if you have a large group of really good friends, not all of them are secret society material. They won't find out, as it is a secret society.

    Conduct a proper initiation for you and your closest friend. This should be done before you initiate others. That way, you are sure to come up with a good idea. The initiation is one of the most important parts of the society. It has to be something neither of you would do normally. Candle-lighting sets a serious and official tone, which is always good. Secret names are fun to have.

    Figure out what your society does. There has to be rules. Set a schedule for fun things you can do, i.e. dressing alike on certain days, or having monthly rituals. Have fun with it. It's all about your creativity. Newsletters are common. It might be fun to post mysterious messages in some part of your school. Everyone sees it, but very few know what it means.

    Find potential members. Subtly drop something related to your secret in a conversation with a friend to figure out how they feel about it. Make sure there's no possibility they ever betray you, make sure they will be okay with the rules. Don't mention your secret society until you are absolutely sure they can be completely trusted. If they betray you, your secret society is not so secret anymore!

    Induct your members. Invite your friends to a sleepover and then spring it on them. They will be surprised and excited, and thrilled because they are special.
  8. Image titled Create a Secret Society Step 8
    An important thing in secret societies is to meet in secret, that means meeting in a new place every time or having access to a secret room somewhere. You could even figure out a time to chat online.

    Make a dress code. Most small secret societies use robes while large ones, like the Freemasons, have complex aprons.
  10. Image titled Create a Secret Society Step 10
    Keep quiet and have fun. Your friends and you will be even closer than ever.

    Initiate well to do people in the society. In a school, initiate the most brilliant and enthusiastic students that seem like clique-material, and they will motivate and inspire others. But you don't want to have too many members. The more members, the less secret it is. Five to ten should be good.

    At first, be friendly, but do not reveal the central secrets of your society. After time passes, slowly begin to unravel secrets to new inductees. After all, you don't want to tell them the secret immediately, because what if they blab it to others? You don't want that.
  13. Image titled Create a Secret Society Step 13
    There needs to be a way to get rid of someone if they become bad for the group or start talking—like blabbing the society's secret. If they do, pretend like that was never the secret, but immediately create a new secret. Put this in the rules.
