Do not fear me

Dead, dead, their bodies piled up in the streets, their blood running into the gutters. Ashes drifted through the air, bodies nailed to crosses, hung from posts, bags over their heads. The lake had turned black, the odd finger popping up every once in a while. If they floated, they were a witch, if they drowned, they were human. The grave yards were crammed with stones full of grievances of young lives lost too soon. Accused of witch craft, died because of a witch's spell, killed in a witch hunt. There were so few of them left; the real spell keepers, guardians of the book.


99% of the time the accused perished.

The Town of Salem was once a quaint, sleepy, albeit religious settlement. Their people had no idea that right under their noses was one of the oldest covens in America, the Witches of Time. They welcomed everyone into their coven with open arms, men and women, frightened children, passing off as an alternative church that sat in the woods. On good terms with the church, the blood was not shed until the Black Plague reached Salem. The Coven was blamed, people lay dead in the streets, the smell of the sick and dying filled the air. Fingers were pointed at the witches, they were dragged out of their cozy streets and hung by the neck until dead. The people were not satisfied, the seed had been planted, the witch hunts had begun. No one was safe, especially not the familiars. They were burned by the dozens, an eternal fire in the square of Salem. Their ashes dusted the air in a sick snowfall, a black plague truly had been set upon the city.

I hate humans
────────────────────
The Witch Hunting ended the same way it began, with the Covens. Dozen of the magically gifted traveled to Salem to place a spell of peace upon the once sleepy town. They encircled it, casting their magic to make the people forget about magic, to realize the sins of their actions, and to ban the sanctioning of the outlandish trials. Their magic was successful in its cast, the people of Salem rest peacefully in their beds and the witches fled, taking their familiars and all traces of magic with them.

Pointed hats, brimstone, blood, and ash; these are the things wizards are made of.
To the woods they went, fleeing into the safety of natural world. Magical circles were drawn to keep outsiders out, runes used to propel them away from the settlements built into the trees and grass. Safely tucked away, the witches had closed themselves off from the world and thrived, building their own society and land with rules and strict regulations. They had schools and jobs, their lives sleepy and peaceful; they had grown content with their world and set in their ways.

At least, until the stranger came.

Blessed with the gift of magic, abandoned by everyone she loved, the stranger had stumbled into their village, allowed through the magical border thanks to her gift. Both a curse and a blessing in disguise, the villagers must rethink their very ways of life and confront the fears they had been harboring for generations; Outsiders.

Rules

Image



You like rules? No? Well too bad, without these we would have a bunch of nonsense everywhere.

Commitment || I am looking for committed role players only. If you are bored and only seeking temporary relief and have no intention of sticking with the RP then don't reserve. If I know you to be someone who reserves with the intention of never finishing your character I will deny you a spot. Not publicly, but privately.

Face claims || Anime only please. Manga is fine, but no anime games or real face claims. If you need help finding a face claim then feel free to ask.

Content || This RP will have suggestive content including character deaths if you suddenly disappear. If you do not like these themes then do not join. Once more I will state if you have no intention of ever finishing your character or replying DO NOT JOIN.

Grammar || This is an advanced RP for literate humans only (I apologize to all the cats and robots but meow is not an acceptable response in a dramatic situation). I expect at least 400 words per post, please do not forget to proofread. Speaking of which if you have read this far please put a gif of your face claim when reserving your character.

Replies || You are expected to reply at least once a week. This is a really important rule. Why? Because that's how you keep an RP alive. If you can reply more then once a week then great! If not please inform me why otherwise you might come back and find your character accidentally got pushed off a building and didn't survive.

Password || And now for the moment you've all been waiting for, the glorious password! If you have read this far congratulations! The password is your favorite song in purple. If it's not in purple I will not accept it.

Skeleton || Will be posted in the OOC

Characters || Must be submitted within 48 hours, after that you have five, count 'em, five days to finish it or you will be banished. There are no assigned roles, I would like to try and keep an even amount of boys and girls. If you have any ideas for the RP or have certain expectations I'm all ears, I love to hear your feedback. Collaborations are an option as well, I'm literally always looking for ways to improve so if you have some suggestions feel free to post them!

Credit for rules goes to Masquerade (Skye) do not use without permission.

Apparently everyone thought Yuu was a girl. "It's clear these clothes aren't going to work." Yue sighed, slicing up her dress to enchant the cloth in order to make more normal, contemporary outfits that would make them look as if they fit in normally with everyone else. "No, but these clothes are so cool!" Orie cried, shaking her head as she held onto her floppy purple hat. She didn't want to part with her new clothes she had gotten from the market. "Do you want us to stick out like sore thumbs?" Yue took joy in forcefully stripping Orie and shoving her into jeans and a t-shirt and a winter coat. Orie wept in the corner for her destroyed witch robe as Yue helped Zinnia and Yuu into human clothes as well. "Sorry." She murmured. "I'll pay you back later. Except Orie, she can consider it revenge."

They knew that Freya had ten dark mages serving under her. The first one they caught was Zacharius Aurora, the friendly wand maker and one of the few who did not consider her a dark mage, he believed in her that she was innocent. In hindsight, it must have been easy for him because he knew he was not the innocent one. Another dark mage was Yuu's own sister, Yumi. No wonder the wizard wanted to come along - he wanted to show that he was not like her, that he would be willing to go against his own family if it meant saving Constantina. "W-well." Orie still looked upset as she finger brushed her hair in the mirror. "We have to go quick. Follow me to the gate and hold hands or you'll get lost." There was quite the crowd in the airport, people flocking to the Gates for the second round evacuations. There were planes coming to take one group to New York, another to Washington, and the last, to Los Angeles. That was the one they would be going to, so they could connect flight to New Tokyo's Haneda Airport.

"All Evacuees with an A Pass, please head for Gate 12..." The voice droned in the overhead, trying to bring order to the chaos. "Reminder, space is limited so please only bring necessities and what you can carry on your person... Please, be orderly and calm, the Tower Society is positioned outside to assist in the evacuations..." He went on and on with standard procedures. "Here." Orie flashed the pack of passports, including their forged Evacuation Pass C, which would take them to Los Angeles. "It's useful having a mafia family sometimes, isn't it?" It sure had it's perks, yes, Yue had to admit that. "Let's try to push through before Director Max comes for us."

By the time they reached the security check point Yue realized that they still hadn't found a way to handle the problem regarding security. She had to think quick because there was no time to waste. She waved her wand inside her jacket's sleeve, casting wordless magic to short out the security machines. "Boss, something's wrong." One security guard complained to the supevisor. "They aren't scanning anything." So now everyone had to be patted down, which would make things much easier for them, since when Yue stripped everyone, she had taken all their wands and put them in her sleeves.

"What are these?" The guard pulled them out of her sleeve, looking confused as she did so. "They're mementos from my parents." Yue explained, tearing up. "She really... loved Harry Potter... so she always..." The woman's face crumpled, clearly having heard so many tragedies throughout the past week since the start of the Evacuation process. "Please, go on. Hold these dear to your heart, your mother's there within you." She gave the wands back with a sympathetic smile.

Yue smiled and waited at the other side. She locked eyes with Zinnia... because there was something she needed to ask her once they were in private.

Zinnia scowled, she had chosen this outfit specifically for this occasion, but it seemed that she still stood out too much among the other mages. "I think your hair is the real problem," Orie said, tugging on a strand. "Sticks out like a sore thumb," it was a very vibrant shade of red. In a world of dull colored hair, Zinnia's was certainly noticeable. Yue handed them each an outfit, her conjuring skills having vastly improved. Yuu took the first stall, Orie the second, leaving only the disabled stall for Yue and Zinnia to change into together. "Uniforms?" Zinnia's eyebrows rose, they were certainly inconspicuous, school children evacuating from their institution. Unless only Zinnia's looked as though she had just gotten out of class.

She did her best to be discreet, but when Yue undressed, Zinnia noticed it, the same marking. "I'm not leaving these behind," she shoved her clothing into her hand luggage, wrestling it shut once more. "Now, shall we continue?" She scowled at her reflection, looking like a common school girl. "One second," Yuu beckoned for them to stop. In the commotion, he grabbed a baseball cap off of the shelf of a gift shop and grabbed Zinnia's hair, braiding it hastily and hiding it beneath the cap. "How hideous, congratulations, I am not completely incognito." She said without humor, scowling once more. "She's kidding," he said to the others, grabbing her hand and then Yue's so that they would not get lost on the way to the gate.

Security was no issue. They believed Zinnia to be significantly younger, giving her a cursory pat down and sending her through. Yuu they thoroughly checked, as well as Orie. Curiously, they did not blink twice at the wands hastily shoved up Yue's sleeve. Once they were cleared through, Zinnia removed her jacket and tied it around her waist, attempting to make herself a bit more comfortable in the crush of human bodies. "Los Angeles, the city of angels?" She read as they passed a billboard. "Why in the stars would it be called that?" Zinnia inquired, wondering if they were truly leaving Castene City behind for one full of angels.

Yue's eyes locked with her own, a sense of urgency in them. The plane would not be boarding for another hour, there were humans sitting in seats, checking their contemporary devices, eating food they had purchased after disposing of their water. "Excuse me for a moment, I must use the restroom." Zinnia looped her arm through Yue's own. "I will take Yue to make certain we do not get lost," Yuu nodded, "don't be long." He warned, "Orie and I will do um... something I guess? Oh, there's food. Let's go buy that thing called a hot dog," he grabbed Orie's hand, wanting her to lead the way. While mages were fine with gestures of intimacy such as hand holding, for a human it might be uncomfortable. "Come Yue, I believe you have something you wanted to discuss?"

Zinnia did look kind of cute in that hat, even if it wasn't really hers. It was odd seeing her in human clothes, though Yue had worn naught but rags by the time she washed up in Constantina for the first time so it wasn't as if she had that much either. "Yeah." She pulled her skirt up to reveal the mark, a white flower resting softly on her inner thigh. She blushed a little when revealing it but still there wasn't anything to do but bring it up now. "What is this? Why do you have one too?" She couldn't remember ever sharing blood with Zinnia to make a sort of contract, so this mark being here was a mystery. "Who owns who? Where did this come from?" It would be important to get this out of the way now so that she would know about it instead of having it be a question.

"It had to be from when the Barons had us..." Baron Asmodeus in particular, that was the only thing she could think of. Miranda didn't do anything like this, so it couldn't have been her. The Tower Society had no reason to put them together either, that didn't make sense. "We're going on an important quest... so I want to know what this is just in case there's some way we can use it to our advantage." Honestly, a part of the moon child liked having this strange connection with Zinnia. As far as she knew, it wasn't harmful in any way either. This could potentially be the most dangerous quest yet, and there was a very real possibility that Freya and most of her Dark Mages had already escaped and are racing to get the Seed this very moment.

After regrouping with the others they saw Orie helping a fumbling Yuu learn how to eat a hot dog. "No, you don't use chop sticks, chop sticks are for asian food." Orie said with a scowl, legs crossed at their table of four. "Here, you eat it with your hands like this." She demonstrated, neatly eating the ketchupy hot dog with her hands on the bun, then delicately dabbing at her face to get any residue off of it. Yuu decided to use a plastic fork to take the dog off the bun and cut it into little slices with his plastic knife and eat it in bite sized pieces. "I don't think that's how I was demonstrating." Orie sighed, rolling her eyes at the scene. "We're back." Yue said, looking at the clock. "They're going to start roll call soon."

Almost as if on cue, the roll call began. Those with primary passes here to come first, and then secondary passes. This wasn't in any tier or anything, it was merely to help give order so that everyone won't be trying to shove themselves in at once. "We have Tertiary, so we'll wait a bit." Orie said, still sitting as she handed out everyone's passports. She arranged for those passes because the others were already all taken by the time the plan was set up. Almost immediately a man with his family sprinted to the front, begging for him and his seven children to be allowed on first. "I'm sorry, Sir." The registrar said with a shake of the head. "You have to wait, because you have Secondary Passes. Please be seated."

The way the man's fist clenched, Yue had a feeling he was going to get violent. Was it really worth stopping it though? "Here, have a hot dog." Yue stole Orie's second one and gave it to Zinnia.

She followed Yue to the restroom, wondering what the conversation was going to pertain. She was surprised when Yue brought up the mark, her cheeks turning pink. Zinnia did not shy away though, this too, was an important lesson for Yue to learn. She could understand the confusion, although Zinnia had known immediately what it was. "It's a mark of possession," Zinnia admitted, maintaining eye contact. She only broke it to lift up her own skirt, revealing the near match. There was only a slight difference, Yue's had one more leaf than Zinnia's, signifying it's dominance. "Observe," she lifted Yue's skirt, holding their thighs side by side. "Yours is the dominant one, signifying that you have ownership over me." She let their skirts fall once more, Zinnia stepping back.

"I suspect it occured during our time with Asmodeus." Zinnia fiddled with the cuff of her sleeves, which had become unbuttoned. "It must be due, in part, to the deal you made with him. You did not break the terms, therefore, I believe whatever deal you made still stands." She brushed her hair aside to reveal a small, almost invisible scar. "I believe this is where they took the blood from to form the seal." The type of contract that had been formed did not need Yue's blood. "There are a few advantages to this sort of contract, mainly for the Master's benefit. For example, should you give a command, I will not be able to refuse. You will most always know where I am, as well as summon me whenever needed, albeit a bit differently from how you would summon Rainarch." There were no advantages for Zinnia to this mark, aside from pain if she disobeyed Yue.

"Similarly, the only one who can undo the mark is the one who made it." Which meant that if they ever wanted it to be dissolved, they would need to revisit Asmodeus in hell and something told Zinnia that he would not be so willing. Zinnia picked up her bag, it was time for them to return to the others. She looped her arm through Yue's once more, the two making their way back to Yuu and Orie, who was attempting to teach Yue how to eat something called a hot dog. "What is this?" Zinnia furrowed her brow, watching the two of them. "It's almost like sausage," Yuu informed her, eating it with a fork and knife. Zinnia wasn't hungry, not after the feast from this morning.

Her feet did ache though, still unused to walking so much and so far. Her feet almost felt cramped in her shoes. They began to call boarding, priority first. They would be here a while it seemed and so, Zinnia took a seat. Yue offered her a hot dog, to which Zinnia passed. "No thank you, I would rather not eat before getting onto... that thing." Her first time on a plane had been spent in a coma, but Blithe had told her it was much like being trapped within the belly of bird, only with snacks and a toilet. "Supposedly," Yuu began to speak over the noise that had erupted at the counter, it was best to keep their heads low and not get into trouble while they waited. "There are no angels in the city, it's a language called Spanish, which simply means City of Angels."

"Seems rather misleading," Zinnia wrinkled her nose. "Still, any place is better than here. Especially now, considering the circumstances."

Yue felt sobered when Zinnia told her what happened. "It was when..." She grimaced, lowering her head. "Asmodeus told me that in exchange for great power, I would be given ownership of you. I didn't think he meant literally..." It was her fault that they had it, that they were forced to bear another mark now. "So probably, there's some power he gave me that hasn't come up yet." She felt sick, it was probably some horrible awful power that would make her a danger to everyone. Like a time bomb inside of her that she wouldn't be able to control once the time came. "When the time comes, if you ever think I'm a danger to everyone... I order you to kill me, okay?" They were on a serious mission, her life wasn't worth all of Constantina. "I'll let you make the choice."

Back to Orie and Yuu, it seemed they would have to wait. They allowed the desperate father to make a fool of himself, he attacked the lady right as two security guards came and dragged him away, taking the children with him. No one spoke of it, it was obvious that they would likely be stripped of their passes and be forced to remain here in Castene City. It wasn't Yue's problem, she didn't really care. Her home and loyalty was with Constantina and the magical world, everything else was irrelevent. Well, except Tyler, probably. "What's going to happen with Tyler and the baby?" Yue asked Orie with a sidelong glance as Zinnia and Yuu spoke about the City of Angels. "Since he's family of a Tower Agent, he has free passage for the Third Round next week." Orie explained with a frown. "He'll likely be put in the Tower building for now with the other family members." So there was a very good chance Miranda was still going to be present in his life, then.

Hopefully she wouldn't make a mess of things again.

It wasn't too long until finally, the Tertiary Passes were called. Yue stood in behind while Orie took the front to make sure the two silly mages not used to modern civilization wouldn't cause a stink. Orie showed them what to do, she handed the Registrar her passport for scanning, and then passed in the Tertiary Pass. After receiving her passport again she headed for the entrance hall of the plane. Once Zinnia and Yuu were processed, Yue made her way through as well. "Because two of you are idiots, I organized the seats so that one human and one mage sit with each other." The genius blonde informed them. Yue and Zinnia would sit together, and behind them, Yuu and Orie. It was the most pragmatic way of doing things, because Yuu and Zinnia would be like deer in headlights, they wouldn't understand how to do anything.

The plane was packed pretty tightly. It made sense, the Government was trying to stuff as many people in as they could in order to safely evacuate Castene City. "We're lucky." Yue overheard someone say. "London's lost it's Director, can you imagine? One pair from Team Holmes even died fighting Baroness Licht!" All the hushed whispers, Yue could only hope it was Christopher and Doll who died - they were the biggest threats after all. "Try to get some sleep if you can." Yue told Zinnia kindly, allowing her to choose the aisle or the window. "The connector flight from Los Angelos to New Tokyo's going to be a long one."

Despite her inexperience with these devices, Zinnia believed she had done alright in passing herself off for human as her passport and ticket were scanned. Her name on the ID was profoundly human, but as long as it matched the ticket, the gate agent seemed to care not who she was. "Annalise Doe," Zinnia nearly laughed as she collected her things and waited for Yue to pass through. Yuu looked at his with a frown, "Leonardo Doe, it seems we're siblings." They handed the documents to Orie so as not to lose them. Even if they could merely conjure them back to their sides, it was best to draw as little attention to themselves as possible. Starting with the seating arrangement, Yue and Zinnia would be sitting beside one another.

"I will take the aisle seat, I have no desire to look outside of this strange bird." She said as she sat down, tucking her bag beneath the seat in front of her. There was reading material provided, but Zinnia wasn't certain she wanted to touch it considering the state it was in. Behind her, Yuu was settling nicely into the window seat. "Tamer of dragons but can't stand a plane," he snorted with an eye roll. The conversation around them was intriguing. While mages had other ways of hearing the news, the humans preferred their screens and whatnot to keep them informed of their surroundings. "Team Holmes?" Zinnia raised a brow, wondering who it could have been. Her expression darkened as she recalled Echo, who was being wrongly jailed for a crime she had not committed.

"When I was being treated there," Zinnia spoke softly. "I encountered a demon by the name of Echo. She was friendly, she followed Blithe around for the most part," Zinnia removed her hat, believing them to be safe from Max's influence for the time being. "She was the Director's familiar. Supposedly, Addison LaFluer gave her a cursed tool to protect him and now she's being charged with his death." She still recalled the little demon's face, her blond hair matted with blood, frightened, shaking, clutching the knife that was supposed to save her Master, but had caused his doom instead. "I have no doubt they will execute her for it," or whatever it was the Tower Society did to punish rogue demons. Zinnia wished she could return to save her, but one demon in the scheme of things was not worth her time.

Not when the entirety of Constantina was in danger. Besides, she had not exactly parted with them on good terms. No doubt this was why they were looking to arrest her now, waiting for her to lower her guard in order to capture her. Christopher had taken her secrets, it was a curious thing why he had not shown up in Constantina. Perhaps the Second Impact was keeping him busy enough that he had forgotten the information he had pulled out of her? She was still furious for it, of course. Doll hadn't exactly stopped them from leaving either, Zinnia had noticed her attempts to intervene were a bit lame. "I can't make any promises, I'm not very tired at the moment." She fiddled with the buckling device, a stewardess coming around to help those who needed it.

"What cute children you have," the woman said to Orie and Yuu as she assisted Zinnia with her seat belt. The witch's cheeks turned pink. She was not cute, she was far from it! The stewardess pat her head as she continued to meander her way down the aisle. Yuu burst into a fit of laughter once the woman was out of earshot. "Do you hear that Orie? We should be proud parents."

Team Holmes consisted of four pairs. "Christopher Delanore and Doll King, the poster children and humanity's best hope against the demons." Yue explained, more than happy to go through the roster to waste time away. It's not as if they could really discuss the mission anyhow. "Silence and Pray, a new pair said to be prodigal just like Christopher with how young Silence is. She often serves from the shadows with her demo." There was another pair, of course. "Rogue and Ostia, an older pair that stayed behind in London when the other two had come here. They have a powerful combination attack." And last but not least was the last pair of Team Holmes. "The oldest pair is Martin LaFleur and his demon, Astrid. They're part of the old guard, serving even when Baron Harold was in charge." That was ancient history of course. "He married Addison, a young agent who joined up and they had two children together."

Who was dead? It really could be any of them, couldn't it? "The four of them have completed many missions together in the service of humanity against the demons." The plane was doing up and Orie had them all chew on gum to fight against the popping ear drums. "They were our best hope." Of course now though, things might be very different since of the four was dead. The London Branch didn't have anyone qualified enough to take anyone's place, though there were rumors that a young pair transferring in from Berlin would be a decent candidate after a few years. If humans weren't so evil, maybe they could have worked together with mages to defeat the demons. Or maybe if the first ones never bothered trying to trick demons into serving them forever, none of this would have happened.

After a short flight they landed in the City of Angels. It was full of bright lights and noise. "This is one of our biggest cities." Orie told Zinnia and Yuu who might be overwhelmed. Yuu already began to cough, his lungs unable to handle the dirty air of the city. "Keep moving, don't hold up the line." Yue told him, the two sisters helping truck the coughing Yuu along so he wouldn't make a mess. "This disgusting air." He panted, covering his mouth with a piece of cloth to try and braethe. "It's worse than Castene City." Yue and Orie exchanged a glance, the both of them being quite used to it, they hardly noticed it. "How are you doing, Zin?" Yue asked her mentor, wanting her lungs to be faring better than Yuu's.

Sadly they didn't have time to dawdle and explore, they had to keep going. "It's only a half hour connection, we really have to get going." Orie rushed them along, headed for the gate that would take them to New Tokyo's Haneda Airport. The quartet of mages rushed their way through the terminals until the reached the one waiting for them, hastily pushing through to get admitted for New Tokyo. "I'll be the interpreter, since no one else knows Japanese." Orie looked almost proud of herself, having learned the language in studying it this past week. Yue glanced at Zinnia, not wanting Orie to have the glory. Was there a spell to let them understand any language?
