2: The ordinary world | in project x, thomas kub begins as a nerdy kid with a very limited group of friends (costa and jb) . he comes from a very wealthy family and has the ability to be popular, but his reserved, nervous personality hinders him. he is trying to survive his last 2 years of high school and play it safe
3: call to adventure | thomas' parents leave for the weekend of his seventeenth birthday. his friend costa proposes that he throw the party of the century to pull thoma, and himself and friend Jb, out of their funks. costa says he has all the hookups and wont back down.
4: Refusal of the call | thomas will not let costa throw a party at his house. he is scared at the thought of his parents finding out. he also does not believe in himself or that anyone would even show up.. | he doesnt want this to happen! | busted!
5: meeting the mentor | once thomas finally considers the idea, costa becomes his mentor in partyology, teaching him the ways of queens. costa guides thomas into inviting people, getting supplies, and coaches him in finally getting girls.
6: Crossing the first threshold | the first threshold thomas crosses is saying he'll have the party and gets word out about it. He steps way outside his comfortable quiet kid minivan lifestyle to do that. he also has to buy supplies and meet costa's friend t-rigs
7: tests, allies, and enemies | thomas has to keep his cool throughout the course of the day. he has to ask the girl of his dreams to come to his party, which is a daunting task for him. keeping from stress is his biggest challenge. his allies become his friends of course, and miles teller. his enemies become, basically, the outside world - his dad, the cops, t-rigs, and the pesky neighbor.
8: approach to the inmost cave | once everyone shows up for the party, everything gets crazy. the party goes from a few friends and games to a full out rager. thomas has to fight off the overwhelming stress that has just been placed on his shoulders.
9: the ordeal | the once, normal everyday rager, escalates quickly into absolute mayhem once people enter the house and things break and people get wild. thomas is freaked out and his neighbor is displeased wanting to call the cops. his party then incites a riot and things get out of control no more hiding.
10: the reward | once thomas' party gets way out of hand, he comes back knowing he's screwed so he finally is forced to let go of his inhibitions and have a good time. He does this by jumping off his house into a bouncy house full of women, and gets alone with the girl of his dreams alexis.
11: The road back | once his inhibitions are gone, thomas learns that he has to let go sometimes. he gets back to his party and enjoys his time being the host of the party of the century. he returns to the party only to be confronted by swat team riot control, angry parent phone calls, and a raging t-rigs armed with a flame thrower and bombs destroying the neighborhood. he is also faced with the challenge of getting back his best friend kirby- his real dream girl.
12: the resurrection | the resurrection begins when thomas goes back after kirby and drops his false personality that lead him to alexis. he then picks his party up, gets people out and saves his dog, then tries to convince t-rigs to stop. even after the mayhem, he tells costa, jb, and dax to go home and rest so he can take the blame
13: return with elixir | after throwing the party of the century, thomas gains a confidence that he never would have thought he'd have before. he faces his punishments in the face, and still moves on. HE uses his confidence in the ending to fix things with his best friend/ new girlfriend kirby
