It may be misery not to sing at all,
And to go silent through the brimming day;
It may be misery never to be loved,
But deeper griefs than these beset the way.

To sing the perfect song,
And by a half-tone lost the key,
There the potent sorrow, there the grief,
The pale, sad staring of Life's Tragedy.

To have come near to the perfect love,
Not the hot passion of untempered youth,
But that which lies aside its vanity,
And gives, for thy trusting worship, truth.

This, this indeed is to be accursed,
For if we mortals love, or if we sing,
We count our joys not by what we have,
But by what kept us from that perfect thing.

War is coming. The demons in the forest have welcomed it. While the people of the Kazeoka village have feared it.

Kazeoka village is a small, busy village built in the middle of an enchanted forest. It's a great place to raise children, a good place if you just want to be alone, and don't forget about the scenery. The village was built centuries ago by men, and has grown into quite the tourist attraction. Men work day to day to fend for their families, Women take care of the children at home, and the children themselves run around and play. Everything is perfect. Everyone is happy.

Except for the demons in the forest.


Yōkai, Demons, and such other monsters. have such ways with the forest. Don't think of them as ugly and scary but think of them more as mysterious and reserved. They have lived in the forest centuries before the Kazeoka village had come around, and claimed the entire, beautiful forest as their own homeland. But when the men came and tore their forest down, they were infuriated. No one had the right to take away homes from innocent people.

Now, centuries later, while the demons have been watching their children grow, and the children have been watching their grandchildren grow, they've been keeping a watchful eye on Kazeoka village through the leaves of the trees as well. They've watching as their community quickly grew, threatening the lives of those living in the forest. They know if Kazeoka were to get any bigger, they'd have to tear the rest of the forests down.

The demons. have had enough. As they invaded the Kazeoka village, setting fire to all houses and stealing belongings from villagers, the Leader of the demons approached the mansion of The Lady of Kazeoka, whom is the leader of the Kōaki Clan, a large clan formed to protect the people of Kazeoka. They had offered her a Peace Contract, a contract saying that the demons would no longer threaten her people and threaten the village if all the villagers moved out, took their belongings, and headed over to another village so the demons could live in peace, tear down the village and grow new trees in their places.

The Lady of Kazeoka, being as stubborn as she is, ripped up the contract swiftly without a moments hesitation, and declared war.

And so The Henshi War begun.

The people are playing a dangerous, stealthy game. To eliminate as much as they can on the other side. It is a stealthy game, and whichever side is the strongest and has the most brain power wins. Now, with the Lady of Kazeoka marrying the eldest son of the Higurashi Clan, more for protection out of love, The Kazeoka side has an advantage. Will the demons still be able to fight for their forest?

Rules





~ Character Reservations: You may reserve a character in the OOC thread. I will not accept peoples characters if you have not asked for a reservation. Even if that CS looks good D: Character reservations last for...well.. the day before the RP starts (since no one seems to get their character done on a deadline... so to hell with that, right? ^^;). Be sure to get your character done in that time (which I'm sure you will, if you are committed).! If you need more time, just shoot me a private message and I'll surely allow you more time! :D

~ Literacy: I want this to be a literate RP. 500+ words per post! If you can't, you might not want to join. Proper grammar is greatly appreciated, too! I know, we all make mistakes, but try not to spell like you are in Grade 2! The first password is telling me your height in feet (just for some trivia, mine is 5'1".... yeah, I know.. ;-;)

~ When Life Gets in the Way..: It's okay! You can just private message me and tell me if something's up and you wont be able to post for awhile. However, if you know you are busy and feel rushed, don't even try to post. Don't come and post less then you normally do just for the fact of posting. If you're busy, take a break!

~ Now Some of the Obvious Ones...: No God-Modding or Mary-Sues! If you get punched in dah face, you get punched in the face! And don't create the perfect character! Also, please don't take over peoples characters while posting.

~ Mature Themes: If you haven't noticed, there will be a little gore in this RP. Romance is encouraged, as always! But if anything gets to much, take it to PMs if you really need to. Swearing is allowed, as well!

~ Extras: If you couldn't tell, this RP is set way, way back then. There were no cellphones, and the women still wore dresses and the houses were about the size of your living room. So please keep that in mind. Also, if you've made it this far, the second password for reserving is reserving in a different language (Ex:Je voudrais réserver femelle une, vous plait et merci. | I would like to reserve a female, please and thank you.) :3 If this is too difficult for you for some reason, tell me if you play any instruments.

~This is a remake of my old RP, The Henshi War, that I created on my other account, SailorTitan. It unfortunately died thanks to.. well... moi. But I was very busy at that time and had little time to get on the computer. Now, since it's summer vacation, I have all the time in the world and am hoping to have a successful RP this time. ^^ don't run away. I promise it will be a fun RP~ I'll be more responsible~

~ Flashback ~
-------------------------------------------------

"My lady, would you like some tea?"

The soft and quiet voice came from behind the person the girl was speaking to. The girl who was speaking had her head bowed down, showing off her brown hair in an up-do. Her clothes were nothing put pure white, like many of the other people wore in the large temple. The girl was older... so she was more a woman then a girl. This woman had known the Lady's father, as well. The woman was always there to offer the Lady some tea or other bits of food, which she would almost always accept. But this time it was different. The younger woman just sat and looked out the window while remaining silent.

It was just then that an explosion of fire shook the whole village for about five seconds. Everybody in the temple flinched and some yelped, while the people outside screamed and ran away... as they had been doing for a long time. There was, indeed, another war outside and demons had invaded. It was different this time, though. With Chiyoko's father gone, she was now the leading lady in charge.... and this was the first time she had seen such an awful war going on right outside her window while being the leader... and she was frozen in place, not knowing what to do.

Tears welled up in her eyes (which was unusual for her) as she continued to watch the fire burning away homes and burning away memories. Yet, she was still frozen. How did she go through life before with her father and watch these wars and not feel anything? She did not know, but today she felt something. Sadness and despair.

"Is the..." Chiyoko started off saying quietly before she stopped to swallow the lump in her throat and dry away her tears. "Is the Kōaki Clan out there right now?"

"Yes, miss. They are fighting as we speak." The woman replied quietly. Chiyoko only nodded and continued to watch the wreckage going on outside her window. She somehow couldn't bring herself to get up and go out there and fight with them. It was a horrible feeling, and it made her feel sick to her stomach.

"Miss! Miss!" A mans voice called out at her as he ran down the hallway to meet up with her. Chiyoko quickly turned her head towards the man and brought her attention to him. She looked up into his panicked eyes with her sad ones.

"T-T-There's a m-man out there asking f-for you!" The man sad in a worried voice while he pointed towards the front door. "A man? What does he want? This isn't the time!" She protested as she glared up at the panicked guy. He had sweat slowly forming on his forehead and he was still panting his lungs out.

"I-It looks like a d-demon!" He whispered quietly, but loud enough for everyone in the room to here. Everyone in the room gasped and some started to run out of the room to safety. Chiyoko's eyes widened as she stood up quickly. She smoothed her purple coloured kimono out swiftly and started heading towards the front door without another word. Her black hair moved along as she did and the red ribbon in her hair did as well. She swallowed the lump in her throat as she approached the door and suddenly felt like she was choking on something. She kept her chin up though and slowly opened the front door. She could hear whispers from behind her from the people probably spotting her down and watching her every move. It wasn't everyday that a demon comes to a humans front door.

As she opened the door, she saw this demon man. Yes, he was indeed a demon. A demon who towered over her in height and had long red hair. She took a breath before she stepped outside and faced him. The temperature was hot from the fires around her and she could still here the screams of the villagers...

"You better have a damn good reason why you are here." She said sternly before the demon started explaining. Chiyoko kept her face blank as she listened to him closely and before she knew it, a piece of paper was being handed over to her. A Peace Contract. Humans haven't seen these things in years... and now that she was holding one in her hands, she didn't really know what to think or do. So, she read the thing out.

It was, indeed, asking for peace. For no more wars or fights. But then again, it was saying that if she agreed to this, the demons would be allowed to tear down some of the village and grow new trees in it's place for their homes. Chiyoko shook her head and looked up at the demon facing her.

And with a smirk now on her face, she took the piece of paper and tore it up bit by bit, all while remaining eye contact with the demon. Once she was done that, she threw the little pieces of paper on the ground in front of her and turned away. She knew she probably just disagreed with a deal of a lifetime, but she sure as hell wasn't about to bow down to a bunch of monsters.



~ End of Flashback ~
-------------------------------------------------

It was a busy day in the village. It was now the beginning of the week and the workers were all getting back to work to start a new week of business. It was almost noon and the sun was shining down upon the village and it's neighbors, the forest. It wasn't usually this warm out at this time in the month, so most people were taking it in and spending the day outside and placing out new markets and opening old ones along the street.

And Chiyoko herself was glad to be in the middle of it. She was there, walking down the busy road. She received a few waves from people and waved back with a smile. She was wearing another kimono, one that was dark red and had golden dragon designs all over it. Her hair was up in a traditional geisha kind of style.

She had left early in the morning to go walk around. Usually she would be required to go out with some kind of protection or guard, but she sometimes likes to take walks on her own from time to time. The company from the villagers is plenty of company for her.

She did, however, leave her bow back at the temple where everybody stayed and called home. Usually, members of the clan were required to go out with some sort of protection or weapon just in case anything were to happen, but... well... Chiyoko sometimes didn't listen. She just liked to go out on her own and enjoy a day. Especially a hot, sunny day like today.

"Hey, Chiyoko! Nice to see you out of your hiding place!" A mans voice called out to her. She recognized the voice immediately. An old friend. Well... not really a friend to her. She found the guy annoying but still continued to talk to him. He was starting work early, as he did everyday, to go cut down trees along with the other men. Chiyoko rolled her eyes and continued on walking, pretending as if she didn't hear him. But the guy knew she heard him. Almost everybody heard him...

"Hey! Wait up! Where's your husband at?" He asked loudly as he caught up with her. He now stood at her side and walked along with her pace as he looked at her. Chiyoko, however, didn't look back.

"He's not my husband, yet. Why don't you continue on with your day, okay?" She said with an annoyed voice as she refused to look at him and continued walking. The guy just shrugged... and just when Chiyoko thought he was thinking about turning away and going back to his job, he started up with telling her some amazing story. Chiyoko continued walking and tried to block him out, but it was hard to when he was practically shouting in your ear. She sighed. He'll probably be gone soon... so she had to put up with him for the time being.
