Introduction



Image





ImageImage
On September 3, 2001 a message was transmitted from Earth to the Delphinus system. The message contained seven samples of music, written greetings in Russian and English, artistic drawings, and directions on how to find our solar system.

The Delphinus system received this message 69 years later.

By then, Earth had already constructed a thriving colony on the moon, and was using the new lunar base as a launching point for the Mars project. In another 50 years, the Martian colony had blossomed as the the home of world's space program, the bleeding edge of space exploration technology, and a vacation resort for the wealthy. The lunar base, now of much less importance, made for a much more affordable travel destination.

The year is 2120 and humanity has gotten their reply from the Delphinus system. However, this reply (meant to be received by 119 year old technology) flew right past the Martian colony and the lunar base-- only to be caught by the outdated space program lab equipment in the Florida Space Institute. A research facility at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

Unfortunately, this equipment is so old it's practically a joke. The undergrad students use the system to ping messages back and forth to each other while they're supposed to be working.

A small group of students text each other while planning a study trip to the moon, unaware that contact from extraterrestrials are mixed within their messages.

One thing leads to another, and they end up unknowingly arranging a meeting with aliens on the lunar base. Whoops.

"I'll. Call. Again." Ice ended his call and annoyance clearly evident on his icy blue eyes. He wasn't sure whether he wants to smash this guy's face to the pavement or something. This person was either crazily obsessed with him which is rather scary. This is literally their first meeting, so he never understood why this guy was adamant on wanting him to stay. The others were readily on the idea to have him leave. "Alien." He started as he turned around to fully face this white-haired man who was the only one clearly desperate in having him not leave.

"You." He raised a perfect eyebrow. An indication that he was questioning that declaration that could be taken as nothig more but a clumsy and stupid excuse. Plus, it was appearing to be a gag since the other two guys at the table collaborated the story of them three being aliens. He was not gullible or naive to believe as much like every scientist or researcher, they do not believe hearsay or words that are not backed up with actual proof. That is why until now God and Science are at odds. Because, Science has yet prove that God or gods exist really.

There was a credible silence as he crossed his arms in front of his chest. "Fine." He pointed at the white-haired man with those slender fingers that appear so delicate and modelesque. "Prove. It." He also glanced at the other two with those penetrating ice blue eyes of his. There was a calculating glow behind his eyes and that sharpness. He was going to entertain this guy for a few minutes. The words of the girls were heard by him as he took it in stride.

"If. It. Is. A. Lie." He tilted his head to the side. Even with his foul mouth and clear disdain earlier, there was no doubt in anyone's mind that he is beautiful and his slightest movement can command looks of admiration from the other people present in the cafe. As for Ice, he was clearly waiting how they would make way to prove themselves as aliens. If this was a farce, he would make sure that this guy would regret ever playing him with his passion for alien studying and sweets. If this was true, he would clearly drag this white-haired man along with his companions to the laboratory at this moment.

After all, this would be a discovery of the century and the proof of existence. This would be exceedingly wonderful. "I. Will. End. You." There was a frightening force behind that slow and sleepy manner of his speaking. "Now. Time. Is. Ticking." He tapped his feet on the floor indicating his patience slowly wasting away. After all, he did receive confirmation of a possible alien sample that he could use for his own research. He really was excited about it and like a child in a toy store, he couldn't wait to have his piece.

"I'm. Waiting." Ice stated as he returned he lowered his hand and waited for what this white-haired guy and his companions would do.

      There was a very real possibility that, in his desperation to be loved by all the humans, Elvis may have overreacted at thought of one of them not caring for him. The thought that he had overstepped crossed his mind moments after the desperate words left his lips, and then, like most serious thoughts Elvis had, it too vanished to be replaced by his need for acceptance. White curls bounced around his head as he glanced from Ice to the table of humans and aliens he had just left, his mouth slightly parted as he tried to think of something else to say.

      As more declarations of 'I'm an alien' were made by Neptune, Elvis licked his lips and tried to think of something useful to add to the conversation. He was pleased to hear that Louisa would study them either way, and felt a relieved smile settle on his face. He took a hesitant step back towards the table.

      "I don't want to eat anyone." Elvis said with a laugh, his tone light as if he were telling the table that he didn't want mustard on his burger, "But uh... I hadn't really thought much more beyond getting him to stay." Elvis' shoulders sagged slightly as he realised his mistake, his mouth falling into what threatened to be a frown. He was sure his eyes were changing colour too, no doubt from an excited yellow to a sad green. Happy thoughts, that's what he needed. " But it's alright, isn't it? It'll be fun! Experiments can be fun! I read in one of their books that you can put a type of mouth freshener in a container of black sugary drink and it explores."

      Elvis forced a smile onto his face and turned his attention back to Ice, though his smile faltered again at the intimidating expression on Ice's face. Elvis' eyes changed to a dark blue, fear, and he ducked his head like a school boy being reprimanded. "I, uh, I don't think... I'm not allowed to..." Elvis felt his cheeks turn red as he tried to think of how he could prove to Ice that he was indeed an alien. He shuffled from foot to foot anxiously, his hands fidgeting in front of his back. It was a bit late to backtrack now, but he didn't think he was allowed to reveal his true form in a crowded moon cafe. There must be another way...

      "I'm not allowed to show you my alien form but... But I could show you our ship!"

      Elvis' expression brightened once again, a grin spreading across his face as he glanced from Ice to the group at the table. He reached out a hand, as if to take Ice's, but stopped short - self-preservation finally kicking in - and instead used the motion to push locks of hair out of his eyes.

      "We could do that, right? Show them our ship? That way they'd have to believe us!" Elvis felt triumphant and proud of himself for the solution, and eagerly took a pace towards the table, as if ready to pull Neptune and Ashe up and drag them to the ship with him so that they could show the humans. He turned to smile at the humans, "What do you say? Please say you'll come see it!"

Re: Fly Me to the Moon

No, that's just fine Sigma, haha! That's a pretty good faceclaim for an alien. I look forward to seeing your character profile~.

Re: Fly Me to the Moon

Angeeeeeeeeeel! Is it okay if I reserve Alien 3 with the faceclaim of Etihw from The Gray Garden? If the FC ain't good enough, I'll go ahead and search for another!

in terms of like a general character analysis or draft, I'm thinking this character is an androgynous being in terms of like gendering and is very easy-going and often chooses to just go with the flow. Following others as opposed to leading them. They are very playful and enjoy pranks and jokes, though sometimes doesn't really understand where to stop. They floating sort of white gems around them are related to their species and serve similar idea of a physical representation of their conscience that they can communicate with, though no one else can hear the voices emanating from the stones as, it is, a manifestation of their conscience. But overall general word to describe the character, hedonistic through and through. Always seeking a good time and fulfillment through entertainment.

Re: Fly Me to the Moon

Yeah the FC is nice and sci-fi esque, I think! Good to have you on board!

Make sure you go and check out the discord, because that's where a lot of the discussion for stuff is going to go on.

Re: Fly Me to the Moon

hi! This RP sounds really interesting; I'd love to have a shot at nerd three (or four, doesn't make too much of a difference). Faceclaim is Julis Riessfeld from Gakusen Toshi Asterisk. Let me know if the fc isn't appropriate for this rp ^_^

FC: Julis Riessfeld is rather spontaneous - often doing things out of the blue - with an admittedly disorganized nature. She seems to be all over the place, with an endless reserve of crazy ideas. FC: Julis Riessfeld is a natural inventor and loves everything associated with tech and physics. Despite her messy demeanor, FC: Julis Riessfeld is actually quite conscientious, and surprisingly attentive and diligent. She's a bit of a handful, but FC: Julis Riessfeld is reliable and never breaks a promise. She has an uncannily precise memory, along with a concern for her close friends' well-being, despite her blatant disregard for her own safety, especially when it comes to trial and error.

Fly Me to the Moon

ImageTO ALL THOSE INTERESTED IN THE RP:

This is an extremely lighthearted RP, if you hadn't already been able to tell. However, the humor can potentially be crude and adult. On top of that, the plot may take some unexpected twists and turns... who knows what might happen? My point is that if you want to join, all this should be a plus.

Since "Fly Me to the Moon" is short, one-shot type RP, you have to give it your full attention while it's still running. Don't slow down posting or keep people waiting too long.

If you want to reserve, tell me your general idea you have for the character and the faceclaim if you have one in mind. Remember the theme is sci fi and strangeness.

History and anything else we should know about your character. History is optional for aliens. However, instead, they must write about what might happen to their appearance if their human disguise starts "slipping". By the way, the heart link up there can be linked to whatever the fuck you want.
