Introduction

Image


There are few places who can boast that they have normals and 'freaks' working together harmoniously but The Moonsetter Circus is one of them. Once a traveling Circus that opened only at night and rarely stopped in one place for longer then a day this band of misfits was well known all over the world and has long been owned and run by the Orpheus family. However recently this well known circus has fallen into hard times. With murder of the previous owner the circus fell into the hands of the young son who took it upon himself to protect the circus from further hate and violence against 'freaks' by moving it to a more secure location, a large abandoned mansion. Taking a year off to renovate and build on the land the circus is once again ready to open and better then before! Now open every-night and available to rent people can come from all over and spend the evening in awe and amazement as each performer gives it there all. Every night theres a new line-up and with new tricks being developed every-day there's always something new to see. But with so much time passed will the show still go on? Will anyone care to remember and come see the circus perform? Or will peoples hate toward the freaks and those protecting them once again put the circus at risk. All these questions and more haunt our young and daring performers at The Moonsetter Circus.

Having spent a year renovating and building upon the mansion grounds for the new circus there is a significant amount of ground to cover. So lets get started shall we ~

Theater - Upon entering the mansion foyer those who come for the show can follow the red carpet dead ahead of them into the theater room. It has enough seats for about 100 people and a stage so large that even the lion tamer can perform with comfortable ease. Some of the tricks even go above the audience head [Trapeze]. While other performances happen to and with the audience making the performance all the more real and all the more amazing.

Off Stage - Behind the stage is a large communal dressing room big enough to cart animals in and out its messy from all the people but is a surprisingly good system.

Ball Room - The theater was once a ball room as well but seeing as they wanted the option to have regular sit down performances as well as rent out there performances and ball room on the side one was kept as is. It's fairly empty and people rarely go in there.

Animal Pens - The backyard has been split into two with one side devoted to the animals, they have plenty of room to run around and are much happier then they previously were traveling in cages.

Garden - The lush green garden has a maze, a lake, and many water features and flowers. Although it would seem a bit excessive it was all here upon purchase and in the past year has gotten a little wild with no one to trim it back.

Upstairs - The 2 floors above the main one have been converted entirely into rooms and bathrooms for all the staff after all there has to be room for those who perform and those who clean, cook, care, medicate, set up, take down and all the other unpleasantness.

Kitchen / Dining Room - On the main floor off of the left side of the foyer is a door leading to many spare rooms some are bathrooms with large tubs others are full of junk but for the most part this side of the mansion is home to the extremely large kitchen and dining room that keeps everyone fed and happy, meals are served communally and with so many people its good to have room for them all.

Library - On the main floor off the right side of the foyer is a door leading to more spare rooms the other ball room and the library. The library is large with many dusty books that came with the mansion it begs the question if any of the books are still relative let alone if they wont disintegrate.

Medical Bay - This is just off of the kitchen and dining room and has proved to be extremely useful considering the amount of daredevil stunts people tend to do.

Feel free to add and decorate your characters profile with what you wish but please be sure to include all the basic requirements given in this character sheet. Also keep in mind that 'freaks' are in no way defined by human limitation so if you have a mind reader or a fire breather they might be able to do that naturally. Also there are just as many normal and freaks who work behind the scenes as there are normal and freak performers and they are just as important. So don't feel limited just because you pick one or the other!

Ashlynn

Ashlynn was surprised as she felt Glamour's touch. She hated physical contact, she knew that. Sometimes the thought would slip her mind, but she knew. The blondette slowly set her cup down as she turned to Glamour with soft eyes.

By the end of her story, the blondette was on the brink of crying. She was always such a wuss over things like this. She wiped her eyes with her hand and sniffled. "W... Wow..." She choked out. "That's... that's very inspiring... and it makes me feel happy that you're able to tell me that.." Ashlynn added on, standing up and taking in a deep breath. "R... Right! I won't fail you, I promise!" She said firmly with a determined frown. Soon, she disappeared from the kitchen, leaving her drink in her spot to become cold.

That is, until she came back and picked it up. "If you'll excuse me..." She whispered, her confidence gone in her voice, but still beamed in her eyes. Then, Ashlynn left for good.

Angelo could tell it was going to be one those days. It was barely a half hour into lunch time and already people were having small spats, getting over them, talking to excitedly and flirting. Seriously if Spade did not throw himself off of something today. Angelo would. Going back to cutting chocolate Angelo mentally went over the list of ingredients and the steps necessary to make the dessert he had planned. He'd been working on it sense yesterday and it was annoyingly complex. Some ingredients had to rest others had to be fresh.And it all had to be ready for tonight. After all what is a grand re-opening if the workers and performers did not get spoiled with a magnificent desert (dessert? god french brain moment). Angelo was so caught up in his work that he barely noticed Frae come in to steal a few pastries until he was on his way out. He gave Angelo and wink and Angelo gave him a puff of flame.

That was another reason Angelo wanted to jump off a building. More then a few people at the circus seemed to believe that if Angelo was breathing fire he was angry or flirting. And although that wasn't wrong it definitely wasn't right. Angelo could breathe fire at any time or moment it would escape his mouth however whenever one emotion got even a little over-zealous. If he was having a great day and was happy, fire would come out of his mouth. If he was joking, there would be fire. Angry? In that case it was blue flame but still. The only emotion that did not elicit flames was sadness well usually. If he was down in the dumps it would in fact have the opposite effect where his internal flame who stop and he'd cool down. So really when people rolled there eyes at Angelo's comments he wanted to roll there necks. After all he meant it quite seriously when he told people not to play with fire or they'd get burned. It had happened once, and it could happen again.

Finishing up the chocolate Angelo looked out the open window dividing the kitchen and dinning room. It all seemed calm... Enough for the circus anyway, though Ashlynn was leaving somewhat early, no doubt to go practice and prepare. But yes all was good. So Angelo felt no reason to hold onto his irritation and he let it out in a long sigh of blue flames. He felt better with just that and decided to take a short break and join Shae she was after all like a big sister and she tended to help Angelo calm down when he was tense, and he needed as much calm and balance in his life or he really might end up burning someone... Again. Shaking out any negative memories Angelo grabbed his own plate of food and made his way toward Shae. She could normally sense when Angelo was looking for a chill pill so he did not say much only gave a cheeky grin to cover his feelings and a cheekier good morning to cover his thoughts. "Morning big sis!"





Brink could not help but blush at Spade's word. "I'm flattered really... But even if I'm the one capable of harm you really should be more careful Spade. Or your going to be the one sending me to an early grave." As much as Brink tried to make it sound lighthearted. There was allot more truth weighing on those words then he would admit out loud. Out of everyone in the circus Spade had to be the one who was sent to the medics office the most. Because healing abilities or not, there was no way Brink was letting him go un-checked. Which proved to be a good thing because Spade was always breaking his damn legs and then forgetting to re-set them.

Shae continued to eat her apple slices in a very methodical order: starting from the top of the circle and working her way clockwise. Keeping her eyes down at her food, she simply let conversations float past her. Words and phrases seemed to pass like smoke, slowly fading away into nothing.

The crowd seemed to have died down a bit, which made the medium a bit more at ease with herself.

Psst... A voice tapped into her energy field and Shae's eyes shot up for a moment... A flicker of dark blue whizzed past her to the left and faded away.

Shaking off the strange vibrations, Shae picked up her tea, taking a deep breath of the steam, and sipping it lightly. Ignoring the entity was probably best... most spirits weren't trying to get her attention to talk about the weather, or something nice.

PSSST... I know you hear me... The voice rang again, louder this time. Shae slammed down her cup for a moment, feeling agitation bubble inside of her; her eyes locked on the peanut butter mound in the middle of her plate... At least it was something to focus on. Her knuckles began to turn white as they gripped onto the cup and she felt a poke in her side. The middle of her forehead began to pound uncontrollably, and she placed her hand over her forehead, as if it might cease the pain.

'Just ignore it.' She repeated to herself a few times, taking deep breaths in through her nose and out through her mouth. Closing her eyes for a moment, she began to mentally recite a spiritual cleansing and all her symptoms began to subside.

"Morning big sis!" Angelo's voice rang through her ears and her eyes whipped open. The brunette turned her head over to Angelo and a smile brightened her face. Shaela, after many years, had learned to let go of irritation easily because she realized it was not healthy for one to hold onto feelings of negativity; and to be honest, she was glad to see Angelo, he normally helped her keep from spinning out of control, or being silent for too long.

"Good morning, Angelo." She nodded calmly, studying him for a good moment; his aura flickered between blue and red, with a hint of gold, yet the red was more vibrant than usual. Shae's eyebrows furrowed with concern.

"Everything alright?" The girl tilted her head to the side for a moment.

Angelo could not help the smile that crossed his face. He had not even been sitting a good minute and Shae could already tell something was up. Letting out a small puff of blue flame Angelo knew that's all it would take to get his message across. He was stressed and worried. He knew that all the performers were more then capable of doing there acts but that did not stop the stress from eating its way into his mind. Brink being the worry wart he was did not help. His constant concerns were starting to effect Angelo... Now he was beginning to chase after people and god he needed a break. But he could take one tomorrow. Today he just needed to survive without burning anyone and finish his dessert. And maybe keep Brink sane because god knows if he was having trouble today then no doubt his older brother was pulling out his hair.


(God the site is glitching really bad sorry I can't give more to work with.)

Character Portrait: Catherine Elthia Brishen

0.00 INK

Catherine, the newfound doctor of Moonsetter Circus, had woken to a face full of sunlight this morning. So either she'd forgotten to completely shut her curtains, or someone had inched them open. Well, either way, she felt happy enough, walking down the halls and quietly greeting those she passed. Her jeans were long enough that her heel stepped on them, and her tank top left her arms bare except for the thin, blue gloves she donned. It was odd for her to have as much skin showing but her cardigans were all being washed and she wanted to wear something light.

As she entered the dining room she knew she wasn't hungry, but she'd have to have at least something, and she settled on a coffee... with lots of cream and sugar. For a doctor she really wasn't the healthiest eater, but it wasn't as if she naturally got sick. She could get injured, poisoned, have an illness purposely given to her and she'd have to get someone else's help as she couldn't help herself, but she couldn't naturally get sick. She pondered this, as she had many times, and prepared her coffee one of the ways she liked it, sweet and creamy. She stood there as she waited for it to finish, an almost dazed look as her eyes wandered to nowhere and her thoughts went with them. The air felt abuss wth many things. Excitement. Worry. Glee. And a bit of... something else.

Re: Moonsetter Circus

Hi! I saw this when it first showed up and began thinking up a character. There was major procrastination on my part but I have a couple ideas now. Would it be okay if I did this?:

FC: Lady Amalthea, The Last Unicorn (Because I watched The Last Unicorn last night and it got nostalgic.)
Job: Medic
Color: Light Purple

Re: Moonsetter Circus

No objections but you might wanna start with one good character before ya make three :P

Re: Moonsetter Circus

Oh wow! so much posting and beautiful characters! I'm so sorry I don't have a character up yet (even though I have ideas for three)

My ideas are

a medic for the performers

a blind telepath

an animal tamer (I don't see one yet, but if so I'll change this)

Any objections? I already have an almost finished char sheet for the telepath

Re: Moonsetter Circus

Yeah the sites been glitchy lately so don't worry to much. I've been encountering errors all over.

As for my posts fair warning everyone I am both sick and moving to a new house so my replies will range from short and quirky to overly rambly as my brain tries to function.

Hopefully though il be all cured in a few days and then I can get back to actually making sense.

Also I have a serious case of french brain today. God I hate knowing two languages sometimes.

Re: Moonsetter Circus

I'm trying to put up my second character, the ventriloquist [Ebony Kirka], but I'm encountering an error... Hmph. I'll try to get her up. Maybe tomorrow it will work. I dunno.

FC: Rukia Kuchiki, Bleach.
Act: Ventriloquist
Color: Black.

Reserved.

Re: Moonsetter Circus

Goodness, so many posts over night... it makes me worry about how many there will be when I leave for my trip tomorrow. I won't be able to have internet access, so I'm scared that I won't be apart of the RP. I mean, I can try posting when I return, but goodness I feel like I'm gonna have a lot to catch up with.

Re: Moonsetter Circus

I'll try to create a character sheet sometime tomorrow or the day after. Was busy with work all today and yesterday.

Re: Moonsetter Circus

Everyone is going to LOVE Leo....

He's pretty much a cat child. :)

Re: Moonsetter Circus

Oh, I'm so excited to start!!! Everyone's characters are so cool >_<

Re: Moonsetter Circus

Hm... have a couple of characters in mind. I'll work on their CS's tonight! :D

Re: Moonsetter Circus

WOOT! So if so many wonderful characters up I'm thinking we can start tomorrow [Unless it already is tomorrow for you because where I am in Canada its still Sunday 11pm so ya know???] anywayyyy~ We have enough characters so it should kick off nicely and we can still accept more characters tommorow if they come in!

Also reminder that if any of you guys are horribly addicted to making characters that its 3 per person and that you can add characters even after we have begun the rp. So get pumped everyone! Hell yeah!

Re: Moonsetter Circus

Shae is all done for you :) hope you like her

Re: Moonsetter Circus

Just finished with all the current character's relationships with my character... so many ;w;

Re: Moonsetter Circus

All the characters are so perfect~ ah but im on my phone so im having a little bit of trouble with accepting and typing but so far it all looks good, just a friendly reminder though to make sure your characters job or act is solidly stated so we dont have anyone running around confused! Also its lovely to see so many of you already plotting character relationships!!!

It was my goal after-all as im not fond of rps that get stuck in the loop of introductions but then never gets any further! I cant even say how many times /thats/ happened. Anyway WIP characters or not il be accepting them all so no one double books an act or job! Because some of the characters are in WIP just remember to go check them every so often so were all on the same page!

Re: Moonsetter Circus

Putting Heaven and Frae in the same room then is going to be quiet interesting then, xD. Both have pride issues.

Re: Moonsetter Circus

Little Heaven has pride issues, which he gets from his sister. She's very full of herself v.v But hey, their my babies xD

Re: Moonsetter Circus

But he's so cute and perfect it's okay, xD.

Re: Moonsetter Circus

Heaven isn't exactly a gentleman either xD

Re: Moonsetter Circus

I sure hope so. My snake charmer is sort of an ass though.

Re: Moonsetter Circus

GMiss, I have a feeling Heaven will like your snake charmer ;)
