Once Upon a Time

An ancient war that preceeds the lifespan of modern times. One of darkness and light, of divinity and sacred freedom. Prometheus, the Titan that gifted humans fire with aim to have the Goddess ascend to rule over the pigs that clearly are unable to rule for themselves. These humans were given fire and instead of creating something greater, they kill each other meaninglessly. What better to do then to summon a Goddess to fix the wrongs of humanity and set the world on the rightful path yet again?

But at what cost?

A Prophecy, with a certain year. A Prophecy, passed down by an ancient family for generations before being handed to its current bearer through sheer chance. Whether to ascend the Goddess or lock her away for eternity, one must possess the Prophecy.

The Reign of Ira Shoku

A spawn of Prometheus, Ira Shoku, now leads Japan with his mighty fist. He controls all as the country's Emperor, and his goal seems to be the destruction of all that is light. A betrayer of Prometheus, his dream of once wishing to save the girl destined to be the Goddess has since been twisted by the darkness of his ambitions. With the cursed Hemond children as his right and left hands, and what's left of his faction of Prometheus serving his mighty Empire, Shoku destroys for the sake of destruction, searching for a meaning he no longer remembers.

It all seemed over. He had the Girl of Destiny under his thumb, he had the prophecy waiting to be deciphered, and the resistance against his power - Hime's Freedom Fighters, his exwife's HIVE, and the scattered gangs of what used to be Tsukasa's Yakuza, all too busy squabbling amongst each other to mount a real rebellion against him. But in a single instant, the tides turned. His own daughter vowed to free both the Hemonds and the Prophecy - but despite being caught yet and her having her plans foiled, the book of destiny has gone missing and it was anyone's guess as to who may possess it now.

His plan cannot proceed without it, and with this, a new opening has shown itself. If those who fight for the light wish to change the course of fate, now is the time to act.

❝Because I know that you're made up entirely of love.❞


ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#762D73 ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #BF3B3B

|| Let the Flames Begin || Paramore ||




It was now time for one of Aria's biggest challenges in her life. She was going to have to explain what a crepe was to someone like Yui who had absolutely no concept whatsoever of what a crepe is at all. "Um, a crepe is like a thin pancake rolled up with creme inside of it?" The idol stumbled over her words, trying to think of the best way to put it. As always she was overthinking things again, it was very much a bad habit of hers. "Sometimes there's fruits too! They're always very sweet and tasty! I bet you'll like them." She then suddenly realized an inconsistency here. "U-um, even though I don't really like sweets, I bet you'll like a crepe?" Aria was famous for preferring salty meals over sweet treats. "S-sorry, I just thought maybe you'd like to try a new sweet thing?" Sweet thing! That made it sound like sex!

What an idiot, Aria! Why did she always have to make a big deal out of everything, anyways? "Y-yeah, let's have a picnic lunch." It'd be easier to just show Yui what a crepe was rather than try to worry about explaining the taste. Such a thing was likely impossible anyways, wasn't it? Now as they waited for Damian to make up some food, they were describing Christmas to the ever so curious Yui. It wasn't just for romance as Ally put it, but also for family. Did any of them have a blood family still intact they were able to celebrate the winter holiday with? The Matsuris were split up, and there was increasing pressure from Natsuo and father to send Mizuki away from the frontlines so they could visit her too. They hardly showed any worry for her, however. Father always did prefer the baby of the family anyways. "Whatever presents we think would make the recipient smile, of course. It can be anything."

At Yui's confession of wanting to be with everyone for Christmas, it prompted a group hug that was initiated by Ally, who pulled Aria in and ha Xavier drag Damian over too. "Even if we can't be with our blood families, we're a real family, too! We'll spend it together." Hopefully Xavier would be in a better mood by then. After his scheduled talk tomorrow with his intended's father, maybe that would be what he needed to put Jenny to rest and move on. No one could mourn forever, and Xavier deserved to find love too. Ally did her best to ignore her blush, though. "Together sounds nice." Not that Aria or anyone else except Xavier had any idea about Leo planning to have Mizuki transferred away for her own good.

"There's not much left to cook." Damian had a sudden idea that might just be fun. "Why don't I enlist you all as cooking assistants?" Ally brightened up and clapped her hands, bouncing a little as she hopped to her feet. "Oh, that does sound delightful! Let's all help you cook, Damian!" Aria was the only one that pulled back a little. "Um, except me. I'd probably make the kitchen explode or something?" That wasn't an exaggeration. She set fire to the Matsuri home once when she tried to bake cookies. Thankfully they had an emergency sprinkler, but that incident would always serve as a reminder as for why Aria Matsuri was never meant to cook anything.

Re: Start

That word is hopefully correct. I mean I just made a new post so I hope so.


Re: Start

Word on the street is that we're alive again.


Re: Start

No, there will be no posting order.

I went in and did it for you, before you post, just copy and paste the code into the reply box.


Re: Start

Hey, I was just wondering if I forgot to do something in my post since mine lacks the whole character card portion at the top of it. And sorry if its something basic that I simply forgot to do since I rushed it a bit to get it done.


Re: Start

Hey, will there be a posting order?


Re: Start

Image

We will be starting tonight, but before you post, here are a few things you should know.

☛ You have been in this world for give or take a month. While it may seem as though everyone died on the same night, in truth, everyone died around the same time. You could have been there a week longer, or maybe a few days less.

☛ You do have memories of your last life, unless you've explained that your price is the loss of memories. You have the same soul, but a different body.

☛ On the night of the full moon, your first faerie revel will take place. This will be the night the RP will start at. It is during this revel that you will discover the truth about your existence, that you've been chosen for a great journey to defeat Sorrow.

☛ What is Sorrow? Sorrow is the personification of the grief, sadness, and loneliness of the world. Should you be succumb to these feelings and be swallowed by Sorrow, you too will become a dark puppet for Sorrow to manipulate. There are ways to combat this and return to normal, these will be discovered during the RP.

☛ Have fun~


Re: Start

Hey Queen, you can go ahead and continue without me, you don't have to wait ok? You know the situation, so I probably wont be a major poster, I made Nyx and 'outsider' type because of that so there's no need to wait - I can easily just read over everything and catch up. :)


Re: Start

As of right now, we're awaiting on two people to finish their characters before we can begin. Squarenuggets is nearly half way done and Skykoko (Xue) who is hopefully beginning to finish up their bio. Thank you for your patience everyone, we'll be starting soon.


Re: Start

Yes Squarenuggets, there is one position open and it is that of the Changeling. You have forty eight hours to submit a work in progress in the CS which is posted somewhere in the OOC and five days to complete it. Please make a proper reservation if you wish to pursue the position.


Re: Start

Hey this looks extremely interesting and I was just wondering if anything else was still available.


Re: Start

Same here. He's done.


Re: Start

I have completed as well!


Re: Start

I've finished.


Re: Start

Allright I'll go for it. The WIP will be in tomorrow, but since it's Easter Sunday I probably won't be able to do a whole lot.


Re: Start

That would be a very interesting sort of haunting, I think you should go for it. Remember that once Sorrow is defeated the ghost will go away.


Re: Start

I was sort of thinking maybe he felt like he caused the death of a loved one, and constantly a ghost, or a voice would speak to him about how their death was his fault.


Re: Start

☛ TrivuLED || You have one major ability and one minor ability, shapeshifting will have to be one of them.

☛ Phantom's sword || I suggest you choose one emotion to discard, otherwise we'll end up with quite the dull Valkyrie

☛ Afreerobin || What sort of haunting? Would he be haunted by something he did in his past? Haunted by Sorrow?

☛ Victorant || A position may open, I'll be in touch if it does.

☛ Mazamazari || The Destiny Price is yours.


Re: Start

Agh I'll take the Destiny Price :o


Re: Start

It seems like everyone is having quite some difficulty with finding a price so let me give you a few ideas:

☛ Memory || Every time you cast a spell or use crucial magic, you lose one memory of your past.

☛ Feeling || The lose of an emotion like sadness or no longer being able to feel happiness. You could also lose the sensation of pain and while this may sound beneficial, it is actually quite a dangerous condition.

☛ Destiny || Every time you have a brush with death you lose a year of your life.

All of these conditions will be reversible once Sorrow has been defeated.


Re: Start

I apologize for that little disappearance, everyone's reservations seem to be in order so I'm going to put you all down. You have 48 to submit your WIP and five days to finish it. Failures to reply will be considered a strike and remember, three strikes and you're out.
