There was once four very different children.
Maybe it was luck that they were there when the Blackout came.
Nobody was quite sure what it was, but at the same time all over the world all technology stopped working for five minutes.
When the technology came back to life, four people were very different.
What happened?
No one is quite sure, not even them.
Was it luck?
Chance?
Fate?
Who knows.
But now that they have grown up, the four people with extraordinary powers must defend themselves from the government, the people, and the world.

faceclaim: Leighton Meester

Two is the independent, witty, sarcastic one. With the ability to teleport short distances, force-feilds, shape-shifting, and invisibility, she is a force to be reckoned with. Her abilities deal more on the defensive side, but that is all the more important.

Five?

faceclaim: Drew Barrymore

There were only supposed to be Four, but something happened, and the experiment got messed up. A fifth person received a power: adaptive muscle memory. Five can see anything once and not only remember it, but replicate it with exact precision. She works for the government, or at least she was the only one thy could contain after the Blackout. Ever since then they have been showing her kung-fu movies and gymnastics or even boxing to make her as best as she can be.

[center]All of the Four heal faster than normal humans (at speeds three times faster than them). However they all require 2,000 more calories than the average human's diet. Each of them have their number marked on them somewhere (It isn't a tattoo, the number just showed up after the blackout). They also all have the habit of involuntarily drawing their number on anything without realizing it. They can all sense when one another is nearby. The government is on a mad search for them because the reason these people are like this is because of them. It's all just one giant experiment gone wrong. And they need to capture them for research. But none of the Four are going down without a fight, and they want to stay on the run. Every FOur start off in the same simple town called Lake Erie with no knowledge of each other.

[size=400]Rules


-No god-modding don't know what that is? glad you asked. It is doing something or forcing another character to do something that they could have done differently. For example, this is what you post (you are Bob): "Bob didn't like John so he punched him in the face. "you wimp. Run home to your mommy," Bob said. John got up and ran away crying." The character of John didn't have a choice to do something else. This is god-modding

-to Reserve you must say what slot you want to fill, and your favorite color.

-reservations last 24 hours or, this can be extended if you ask for more time

Star wasn't quite sure when she passed out, but somehow she did, because she awoke inside of a van. Panicked, she sprung up from her sleeping position, ready to take on whoever had captured her, and whoever was stupid enough to not bind her arms or do anything. Glancing around in half blind fury, she spotted Adam on the ground beside her. Confused, she wondered how they'd manage to catch someone like Adam. She figured it would be nearly impossible. She looked at his face and could tell he had been crying. But why? What did they do to him?

Finally taking a peek at the driver's seat, she saw that nobody was up front. Very confused and also still a little dizzy, she slid open one of the side doors of the van. Stumbling out of the van, she turned around and read the letters SWAT on the upper right hand side of the van.
Confused by the entire situation, she was trying to recall everything up to when she had passed out. She certainly didn't remember getting put into a SWAT vehicle.

Turning around, she took in her surroundings. They were completely surrounding by woods, only a small dirt road leading off through the trees. A small cabin was set into a small bit of clearing, and if she focus on the trees behind the cabin, she caught small glimpse of the lake. Where is Troy and Spitfire?

Star had regained some of her energy, but did not want to spend more of it by teleporting to the Cabin. So instead she teetered her way across the yard. As she made her way towards the cabin, a body rose up beside her and started to walk that way too. Star panicked for a moment before realizing it was Troy. Half walking, half jogging, half stumbling her way over to him, she lays a hand on his shoulder to get his attention.

"Hey, are you okay? Where are we?" She asked, walking beside him. She needed food, and fast, or she might pass out again, and clearly that cabin is the best option.

Completely lost in his own world Troy would flinch a bit when Star placed her hand on his shoulder.


"Hey, are you okay? Where are we?" she'd ask, and he'd glance past her to the house as he responded.
"It's a Cabin that belongs to my grandparents, no one knows about this place so I thought it would be better than immediately running for the state border - which they're probably expecting us to do."

The sounds of crickets an a resident owl were all around them, and Troy would take the noises in for a moment before speaking up again.
"I'm sorry for bringing this all on you guys so abruptly. I was selfish as a kid, I just wanted to forget about Timothy Hopkins and theses powers an act normal. But maybe if I would of tracked you guys down sooner we could of been better prepared....."


Shoving his hands in his pants pockets Troy would kick at the dirt on the ground a couple times before looking back at the Cabin again - a small smile forming on his face.
"Come on, there should be something to eat in the deep freezers out back."



Troy would wave Star along as he walked around the side of the cabin and then up to a small but cleanly built shack.
It was nearly black out and the light in the small enclosure was out, but thankfully the light inside the freezers worked.

"Empty..." he'd say before closing one, however when he opened the other a tentative smile would appear on his face. There were several frozen Rainbow trouts and Bass, an underneath them Troy would also find a couple of frozen Pizzas.
"Fish and Pizza, that goes together perfectly." he'd joke, before grabbing a large Bass, Trout, and both boxes of pizza.






After making his way back inside the Cabin he'd turn a light on in the kitchen, fill the sink up, then drop the beheaded & deboned fish into the water. Troy then turned the oven on before taking a seat on a stool at the Kitchen's bar and resting his forehead in the palm of his hands.
"Shouldn't take long for the oven to warm up, by then the fish should be defrosted.....steamer can have them cooked in under 10 minutes. There's probably some drinks in the refrigerator but nothing much more than or condiments.....we usually bring food when we come out here." he'd say to no one in particular, before sighing softly.
To be honest he wasn't all that interested in eating, his body was exhausted and his mind was racing with a million different questions.

"Oh, there are three bedrooms upstairs if you want, I plan on staying down here."

Adam Dawson


Adam sat still in the back of the SWAT van the whole journey, he had stopped crying and was now filled with anger. As the group stopped outside of the house Adam didn't move, as Troy told him to get the girls in he didn't move, the girls jumped out and got themselves acquainted with the surroundings without him anyway. So many thoughts were running through Adams mind, like how the FBI murdered his parents, that's not possible because it's a government organisation, they don't just go around killing people.

With a yawn Adam came around and took in his surroundings. Scooting over to the open door of the van he looked out over the woods and house. Shifting his thoughts the best he could he smiled, he'd at least attempt to cheer up, for the other's sakes.

Jumping out the van he walked slowly towards the house and opened the door with a creak. Inside was how you'd expect a woodland cabin to look like, except it was bigger on the inside. As he entered Adam felt the burn in his stomach and realized he had been running on near nothing aside from breakfast and crisps today. His parents flashed in his mind as he remembered his mother cooking eggs and bacon for his father and himself, his smiled faded instantly. Picking himself up yet again he regained his composure and faked another smile.

Strutting into the living room Adam noticed only two important things, Four and a fireplace, which was burning already. "Hey hothead, pun intended." he smiled and shoved his hands as near to the fire as possible without losing them. The heat felt good. "So uh, when you flame-on do your clothes burn away? I was holding that question since I knew you burned things." Adam was back to his old ways.

Just then he remembered he had lost his limited edition deck of cards when he dropped his bag. Swearing mentally he abused himself jokily for being so stupid.

Spitfire suddenly heard a voice. "Hey hothead, pun intended. So uh, when you flame-on do your clothes burn away? I was holding that question since I knew you burned things." Spitfire recognized the voice as Adam. She gave him a dirty look, wondering how she should respond. A mental smirk crawled into her mind. There was nothing wrong with being a complete show off. Her mental smirk turned into a real one.

She stood up, using the fireplace to help her up. With an unnecessary wave of her hands, everything but her feet burst into flames. She had no intention of setting the whole cabin on fire. The flames dripped from her arms and legs, harmless sparks flying. She swung her arm centimeters above Adam's head, debating whether she should have set his hair on fire. She made an X with her arms and swung them apart. The fire disappeared. She smiled smugly, outstretching her arms to reveal that her clothes were perfectly intact.

"To anwser your question, yes. I just keep the fire from touching my clothes. I've set my shirt and pants on fire countless times, but now I know how to keep it from setting it on fire. Even if they set on fire, I could put them out. Be careful what you ask, or else you'll be waking up in flames," She smirk. Satisfied, she made a dramatic exit, sending a spark or two his way.

Star silently followed Troy to the shack by the cabin, peering at the near empty freezer while he fished out some stuff. Fish and Pizza? As long as it was food, she was happy. She felt a little light headed and figured food would help solve that problem. The cabin seemed nice, and there weren't any other SWAT vans pulling into the clearing so it would have to do. Although she sighed, knowing she would probably not be able to ever return to her humble cottage again.

As she walked into the cabin, she jumped back, startled to see that Spitfire was, well, on fire. In a wooden cabin. Star really questioned that girl's intelligence.

"Are you trying to set this place on fire?" She asked, slightly amused. She dropped down next to Adam and the fire, even though she really wasn't cold. But the fire was comforting and so she bathed in it's warmth, hoping Spitfire wouldn't get any ideas and light her hair on fire or something.

"So what happens if they find us here?" She mused aloud. Where would they go then? Why are they even hunting them? Star's stomach grumbled, interrupting her thoughts. She needed food now. SHe couldn't wait for the fish to thaw and pizzas to cook. Hoping for any scraps of food, she went to the kitchen. The refrigerator yielded nothing, and the cupboards were just as bare. Opening the pantry, she found a few things. An empty cereal box, a can of corn, a half empty box of pasta, a granola bar wrapper, and a jar of Nutella. Jackpot. With high hopes, she pulled down the chocolaty goodness and twisted open the jar. She didn't know how long it had been in there and frankly she didn't care. It wasn't all dried up so she plucked a spoon from a drawer and spooned it into her mouth. She thought maybe she should share it with the others, but Nutella was so good, and there wasn't much left anyway, so she shamefully ate it, with a spoon, in the kitchen.

And enjoyed it.

Troy laughed under his breath in response to Star's comment directed at Lizzie. The smile on his face would quickly disappear however when number two began to a wonder aloud about them being found.
"Well as long as we keep the lights off and keep a low profile we should be safe here until the morning since I blocked the entrance with a few rows of trees. We should probably leave out early tomorrow though, under the cover of darkness just to be safe."
At the end of his sentence Troy's stomach would begin to grumble and he'd realize he had no patience to wait for fish to defrost and an oven to preheat, so after turning off the living room and kitchen lights Troy would unwrap the pizzas and stick them into the oven - turning the temperature up to 500.
"Let's hope that speeds things up" he'd mutter to himself, not much of a patient or well trained cook.

After throwing the fish into a pan, sliding the pan into one of the steamers, and then turning the appliance's timer up as high as it would go Troy took a seat on one of the bar stools at the Kitchen's bar - several feet back from the others and just barely within the circle of light created from the fire.
Suddenly he'd notice Star stand and make her way back over towards the Kitchen and he'd watch with a raised eyebrow as she began to search furiously through the empty cabinets- eventually finding an old jar of Nutella.
It was a bit childlike how she stuffed each spoonful of hazelnut chocolate spread into her mouth so he couldn't help but laugh at her.
"Hungry I take it?" he'd joke as he shifted in his seat.


Troy would linger in silence for a moment before speaking up again.
He'd take the next ten minutes or so to repeat the same story he had told to Star hours ago in the restaurant to Lizzie and Adam, adding a few random extra details here and there.**
"I'm pretty sure they don't wanna round us up for a tea party, my best guess is they wanna lock us up, study us, perhaps use us for something..... whatever it is I'm pretty sure it isn't anything good."

Scratching the back of his head Troy would sigh for a moment before walking over to the oven and opening it's door.
The cheese on the pizzas was slightly burnt and the dough was a bit white still but it was good enough for him, so after pulling it out and placing it on the counter he'd pull out a knife and plate, half one of the pies, and put a whole half of pepperoni pizza on a old plastic plate before making his way back to his bar stool.

"If you have any questions I'll try to answer them but- " Troy would pause to take a bite of his rather large "slice" of pizza, which wasn't all that bad. "-I can't promise you any of the answers will make you feel any better."
His blunt honesty would be muffled by the food in his mouth, but Troy was still able to speak clearly enough to get his point across before taking another bite.

Re: Four

Well hello there.

Sorry about the death in the family. =(
I live in depression every day so I know it's nothing great, and when other stuff happens on top of depression it just makes things worse....I've often found myself afk from RPing and the net in general when things get really bad, so I understand!

I'm still here though, however school has started up now.....and I'm constantly reading a ton of stuff for my classes, so I'm not sure when I'll respond but it should be by this weekend! I'm so thankful I subscribed to this thread so I got an alert in my inbox, I haven't been on here in almost a month! xD

Re: Four

Sorry guys I kind of dropped of the edge of the universe there for a few months. I've been pretty preoccupied with things... a lot of family troubles. Depression. Death in family. So not so great stuff. But I'm back now and putting the past behind me. I hope we can kick up this thing again and I hope you guys didn't give up on me. I'll try and post as often as I can and I hope you guys can too.

Re: Four

I figured I'd post here with some info even though it's kinda quiet....
Our power is going to be shut off tomorrow and we won't able to get it back on for a week. So if Haas or anyone posts in between then, I won't be able to respond until the power is back on.

Merry Christmas and all that jazz.

Re: Four

Expect my post in the next day or two

Re: Four

I have no idea, but I'm waiting for at least Coredeaux to post. -sigh-

Don't worry though, I won't go anywhere! ^^

Re: Four

Where is everybody? I don't want to go on without them...

Re: Four

I"m here! By the way, my character was at the museum parking lot, she pushed out the SWAT member out already, and she's not number 3, she's 4.

Re: Four

Everything is looking great guys! I'm not sure where Limepepper is in all this, and I really don't want to post until she has, so I'll shoot her a PM and see if she can get back to me.

Re: Four

I don't think Adam was overpowered but the FBI murdering his parents was maybe a bit much. Yes, it's the Government and they can be quite ruthless but they'd likely take his parents hostage or something first - perhaps killing them later by starvation or something. But meh, that's not a big deal imo when it comes to the RP in the longterm :3

I'll post tomorrow if i don't manage to pass out all day from being up two days straight o__o lol
POSTED!!! xD

Sorry that it's well.....massive. I kept writing, deleting, and then re-writing stuff that I lost track of how long it got! gah. I do apologize, I was just trying to wrap things up. -facepalm-

Re: Four

Okay so sorry for the wait, my post is finally up. I just wanted to get everyone's opinion on it, was Adam too overpowered or were the soldiers a little too ruthless? I just wanted to reverse the thought in Adams mind about not killing anyone and tie up the loose end about the parents at the same time, good or bad post? :/

Re: Four

Awesome! i've been busy anyway, so the small break was fine with me.
