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.

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.

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.

Trapped inside of her mind, it was strange to be able to hear everything around her and be unable to respond. The most Zinnia could make her body do was twitch, but her eyelids were too heavy to open and her limbs like concrete. She could hear Blithe by her side, reading to her, her favorite book. "I'm right here Blithe, I can hear you." Zinnia whispered, the words of the strange angel bearing down upon her. If she did not fix her soul, it would be terminated. Zinnia hadn't a clue what that meant. Of course she did not know of the expedition preparations to Ogygia. At least, not until Zeus arrived with Yuu to retrieve her body. "Blithe, where are we going?" Zinnia inquired as she could feel her body being moved. "Blithe, why aren't you coming?" Panic rose in her throat and she felt nauseous, screaming inside of her mind, wondering where Yuu and Zeus were taking her.

Blithe followed, begging them. "Blithe, where are they taking me? Why aren't you coming?" Zinnia demanded, but no one could hear her and thus they would not reply. "Please respond," Zinnia whispered, her one wing fluttering and a shiver escaping her. She had disappeared on the last night of October, it was now mid December, not that she could tell how much time had passed. "There, all snug like a bug in a rug." Zeus's voice came as something soft enrobed her. "Put her next to Yue and Darris, they'll all be in the same cabin." Cabin? Zinnia could smell fresh water, but she could not hear or see Yue and Darris. Were they alright? No, upon recalling the condition of her girlfriend, she had not been okay.


"Do you think she can hear us?" Zeus inquired as he placed a blanket over Zinnia's dress. Blithe had packed her a bag, demanding that they not leave her in a night gown, as Zinnia would never stand for that sort of laziness. "According to Autumn she couldn't sense anything inside of her," Yuu replied, his voice sad. Flammel appeared from behind, his bright orange beard catching the mid winter light. "The others are all ready to set off," Rainier suddenly climbed the boardwalk, "I want to say goodbye," Yuu nodded, leading him to where their three sleeping mages rest. Zinnia twitched, her feathers ruffling. Rainier took that as a good sign of course. "I will take good care of Blithe until you return, so please, come back whole." He whispered, putting over an enchantment so that he would be able to check up on Zinnia if he felt something was off.

"Alright, have a safe voyage. We will all be waiting and praying to the Stars for your safe return." Flammel smiled, "Of course, we'll be coming back whether we find Ogygia or not." Hopefully they would make the connection and come across the dimension that carried the magical healing waters of the mermaids. "Yue is depending on it!" Orie called, waving. Rainarch was crying in a puddle once more, Blithe patting her wet back awkwardly in an attempt to soothe her.

Protea spied through a magical telescope as the leaf boat set off from the starryscape port. They were at the Oolong River Pocket dimension, a green loopy river that circled around, floating in an empty void littered in white lights almost as if they were stars. "There are a few good stars down the river that way." Protea said, looking back at her fellow passengers. Lumiere stood next to her, smiling as pleasantly as she could. Protea wasn't as nice - the people she cared about were not doing well at all. Yue was a log, and Zinnia was trapped in a mana-deprived sleep. She felt lonely, really. "It's really pretty." Lumiere said with a nod of acknowledgment. "I guess?" The Saharan Witch did not really feel like making friends, especially with a filthy Empyrean on the boat as well.

"I'm glad we get to see it." Lumiere had stars in her eyes befitting her name as she gazed at the void sky. "Not like the others can see it." Protea mumbled, shoving her hands in her pockets to retrieve the mana battery, sihponing a little of her mana into the device so she could cast in the case of an emergency. "The others can see this beautiful view too." Lumiere said, ever positive. She was never one to be down in the dumps after all. "Once they wake up, they'll have plenty of time on the return trip." The Oolong River Pocket Dimension only flowed one way. It was in a loop though, so on the way back from Ogygia they would simply have to go the whole way around and no one knew how long that would take.

Someone popped up then, sporting a silly grin. He had finished tucking the patients into their cabins and ensured they were safe and comfortable in there. "Hello ladies, I'm Zeus! It's nice to meet you!" Protea remembered him and heard stories of him. She was not a fan of Empyreans and how they did things. The steampunk aesthetic of the Empyrean Airship reminded the Saharan Witch of another place she visited during her travels as she was journeying from Sahara to Constantina. The Capital of Magic, The Falvarken Pocket Dimension, was a very steampunk city, filled with bronze and pipes and no respect for nature. Even the second princess, Princess Yulissa Falkenrath, was a piece of work. Why Queen Althea decided to come here and pretend to be just a normal Original was beyond Protea, but Althea had forced Protea into silence when she made her presence known in Constantina.

Most likely, Queen Althea Falkenrath was trying to reunite the Magical World as one, under her family's rule. "You smell like rotten eggs. Do you ever shower?" What a troglodyte Zeus must be. "You should go hand out with Zolair, at least he's a boy like you." Zeus seemed very confused about that. "But she's reading books over there?" He asked, his eyebrows both raised in an expression of surprise. "And how is she a boy? She looks just like Claris?" Lumiere gave Zeus a gentle smile and began her explanation on the Aurora family's situation. Protea returned to her perch, keeping view of the exit points of the river. Yuu and Flammel tasked her with this job, and it was easier to do it without being distracted.

Flammel was the Captain of their ship and Yuu was supposed to assist him, but he couldn't help but sit in the room where the three injured mages lay, unaware of the world around them; well, presumabely unaware. "Yuu! I could use your help!" Flammel called from outside and Yuu begrudingly rose to his feet, leaving their three patients to lay in wait of whatever fate had in store. "Can you calibrate the Promythean Peninsula from here?" Yuu went over to the map and pulled out a compass. "I'll do my best," after all, as Flammel's newly appointed apprentice, he had a lot to learn. He was mid charting when a question sprung into his mind. "I know why Yue is important, she's Constantina's Seer, but Rainier said something that struck me as odd." Flammel glanced at him, but did not stop him.

After all, it was better for the mind to be sharp and curious. "I will hear you out boy, but I may not answer your question." Yuu nodded, "Rainier said that Zinnia was too important to lose. What did he mean by that?" Flammel shifted, almost seeming uncomfortable. "There are things that best remain secrets," he smiled serenly, not answering the query, avoiding doing so purposely. "In any case, Yue is integral to Constantina's future, we must see to it that her mind is restored." Another question bugged Yuu then. "What if, after this, she never wants to have another vision again?" Flammel's smile became sad. "She is awoken, she will always have visions, whether she chooses to channel them is up to her. It would be understandable if Yue steps down and chooses someone else to take up the mantle."

"They all went through something horrifying, I can't imagine they'll spring back easily." Flammel nodded, "the mermaids will help. I know Zinnia has always had good connections with the folk, surely it will help us win them over." Yes, Zinnia had always been friend to the folk, she had always had a special connection to nature that other mages sometimes had difficulty forging. "I don't want to lose them," Yuu whispered, putting the compass down. He had finished his task, "We're going to do our best boy. Sometimes it is better to not be emotionally attached. Think of it as delivering a package." A package? But somehow, Yuu could not disconnect his friends and think of them merely as bundles to be delivered.

"Where am I?" Zinnia whispered, able to sense the difference. Blithe was always there, speaking to her, Rainier had said that she was going somewhere, but where? She could hear others speaking around her, but she could not see them or respond. Yuu had gone, leaving her in a quiet room. It was akin to torture, being locked within your own body. "Someone please return, I hate being out of the loop," at this point, Zinnia would even take Zeus, if he merely sat here and spoke with her so that she would feel a bit less lonely.
