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.

Image
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.

Luna wanted to do something else, this was just tiring. She already had to spend lots of the day with these people, why did she have to hang out with them here now? And yet she had to, this was the new punishment she had for wanting to have fun, her poor game system still stuck inside the locked box Yui had conjured using a miracle that Luna preferred to call a disaster because that was what it was! It was just mean! Why would someone do that to her? Well, because she asked for it, probably? "And I bet Japanese crepes are better anyways!" Luna declared, defending Yui's choice in favorite food. Finn gave an excited smile, nodding. "I bet they are! I want to try one!"

Luna whispered to Ren in warning as he appeared while Yui was showing off her wingspan. "Be careful! These people are friendly, be warned!" Almost instantly Jake ran over to check out Ren's wings, fiddling with a black feather. "It's so cool!" But Luna's was black too, why wasn't hers cool? "Hi! I'm Jake, this is Finn, and she's Eliana, we're Yui's classmates." Luna rolled her eyes and then Ren nudged her with that evil grin of his. "I bet you secretly like them!" Luna shook her head. "No! I only like Yui!" Ren's grin grew wider, more fanged and predatory. "Okay, I'll go into their heads and give them nightmares then." Luna then suddenly grabbed Ren's shirt. "No! Don't do that! N-not that I care about them or anything!" Then Eliana poked her arm with a smile. "I knew you cared about us."

And then by the end it was time for Noise and a new girl who was apparently called Melody to teach them about idoling. "This is for the Empress and First Lady of Japan, right?" Melody asked, ears somehow twitching, which obviously proved that she was an alien. "Yeah, so you three better do your best to learn these drills!" And so the torture began of them being forced to learn and and move and twist and do all sorts of impossible gymnastics. "I'm tired! My legs hurt! Help me!" She begged to Yui as Noise bullied them to becoming better idols for the eventual wedding.

Yui giggled, she was glad that Ren too, liked their friends. "I would introduce you to people from my class, but they think that they're really cool or something." Ren said as he sat down, "not as cool as Yui and Lulu though," he took a bite of his lunch, eating a bowl of cereal and a few slices of bacon. Breakfast for lunch was always a good idea, or at least, Yui thought so. "That's alright, I'll probably meet them sooner or later," Yui smiled as she rocked back and forth on her heels. "Luna, I'm glad you're making friends!" Yui beamed, proud of the fact that Luna, even though she acted unruly, was really just a sweetheart who wanted to be able to have friends. Or at least, Yui thought so. "Luna is a big softy, she acts all tough, but really, she just wants to make a lot of friends!" She informed those at her table.

"Hey, what are you all doing here?" Ronan asked inquisitively, having expected them to eat together. "These are my classmates! Ms. Emily said that we should sit together so that we can get to know each other!" Yui chimed and Ronan nodded. "Noise is looking for you three, don't forget you have idol practice." He reminded them and Yui nodded, she didn't think that she could forget. "Who's this guy?" Jake whispered loudly to Finn, who stiffened. "I recognize him, he's the Black Reaper!" Ronan stiffened this time, glancing over at the boys. "This is my big brother, Ronan, he also wants to make a lot of friends!" Yui informed them, smiling innocently. She knew of his history, of the crimes he had committed, but she also knew that a lot had changed since then and that Ronan was a better person. He was no longer on those drugs that made the mind go blank and whatnot.

After lunch, they gathered in the practice room Yui had been in yesterday. Already, the two idol veterans were making them do warm up's. Yui was excited, she had enjoyed meeting so many girls and a boy from around the world that also enjoyed idols. Malik, the one boy in their group, had been a very big fan of the Little Sinner. It had made Daisy's teeth grind when she had found out and had asked him why. His reason had been none other than he was a purist fan of Gothic Lolis and that the Little Sinner fit the bill perfectly. Yui, of course, had tittered at this, knowing how much Aria had hated the label and wanted nothing to do with it. "What are you laughing at?" Noise asked, bopping Yui on the head. "Get back to your exercises!"

"Come on Lulu, Ren, let's keep going!"

The days trailed on by as school continued onwards. Luna and Rhonda showing up some of the boys in their mixed martial arts, doing their little tricks to prove that they could be strong too. Eliana has started bringing a book of silly jokes to classes that she would tell Yui to get little giggles out of the adorable angel and Finn was already looking forward to the Idol Club's first production. Noise kept on pushing them ever onwards with the hard training too. It has been a month now since the start of the school year and things were trucking by as Luna proved to everyone in her class that she wasn't that smart. However on the field trip to the mini Airport to look at technology, Luna was the best of all of the kids to talk about aerodynamics, so it was a good choice for Miss Emily to make her field trip leader.

But now was time for something new. A Sports Festival was chosen, with each team consisting of four people, chosen depending on dorm room closeness. This meant that Ishani and Patty would be their partners for this event. "Well if there's a swim event we're guaranteed to win!" Patty said with a grin during their planning session to figure out how to bring home as many prizes as they could. "And Luna will win all the high and long jumps!" Luna gave her a snooty look, still hating the thick Irish accent. Three awards for their team, that was good enough for them, they weren't too ambitious. Patty herself was more of a nerdy type so she wouldn't be able to contribute very much. "Who should do the three legged race?" Ishani asked, looking at the schedule where they could register each team member to contend. "Want to do it together, Yui?" The pinkette asked.

Then they heard a ruckus outside the dorms, there was a loud swell of noise. What could be happening? Luna rushed out to investigate the scene and then she saw it. Ronan was being lifted by his three team members, and Xavier was on the other side, both of them staring each other down. "I'll be the King of the Sports Festival!" Ronan shouted with a pounding of the chest. "No one will beat me!" Xavier grinned, letting out a bit of a yell. "I'll be the one to defeat you, Ronan! I'm the King of the Sports Festival!" Luna rolled her eyes, having had a feeling that they would be competing against each other. And of course, there was only a month now until the Wedding.

As the days passed, Yui seemed to be shining brightly. She was practicing hard with the idol group and enjoyed her conversations with Eliana that were usually mostly jokes to get a giggle or two out of the little star. People were already coming up to her about the Idol Club, talking about their excitement for their first performance after the upcoming sports festival for the closing ceremony. Yui and Luna would be teaming up with Patty and Ishani, who were both just as eager to enter every sports competition they could. The girls would be separate from the boys in certain categories, but in some cases, they would compete together. The three legged race, for example, was one where both genders would be going head to head to see who would take home the prize. "Let's do it together Lulu," Yui said, signing them up. Yui and Ishani would be competing together in the swimming relay, which was fitting considering they were both on the swim team.

"Patty and Ishani should do it too!" They tied their legs together and lined up at the starting line. Perhaps it wasn't the brightest move on Yui and Luna's part because the two were known to be clumsy when it came to activities such as these. The starting bell was rung and they took off, the two girls working together in a spectacular feat of teamwork.... only for Yui to trip and fall and tumble, taking Luna down with her, the two of them nearly trampled by a few others on the field. Not to be dampened by this set back, Yui quickly rose and helped Luna back up to her feet, only to come in dead last. "I'm sorry Luna, it's all my fault we lost." Ishani and Patty, too, hadn't done any better in the three legged foot race.

"What's the next event we can all do together?" Yui wanted to know, determined to bring back at least one prize. Ronan was being held on the shoulders of three boys, proudly whooping and showing off his first medal while Xavier declared that he was going to win the next one. "I don't think it's fair to be in the same competition as Ronan," Yui admitted. "He was trained for things like this," Yui too, had technically been trained to perform physical feats of which the likes of others had never seen before. It just happened to be that Yui never used this training, instead choosing to perform based on what she wanted to do.

While Luna and Yui floundered and fell over each other in a dramatic failure of a three legged race. Meanwhile there were two teams who were gathering almost all of the points. "It's okay, it was fun!" Luna helped Yui off, untying the rope around their legs. It was funny but she wasn't really all that serious about this. Even if they couldn't win it was fine with her, she was just glad that there was some time off from having to worry about studies all the time. It was a nice break. But still, there were two very serious people at work here. Ronan was collecting medal after medal and Xavier was winning them too. "Don't worry, we're in it for fun really." Patty said, coming from losing at badminton, tripping over her big Irish feet.

After all of this was done they would be having a presentation done by the Idol Club and Luna was intrigued by it. Despite not being Aria she still did have a connection to the idol world via the memories. "It's time for the jump stuff, so I guess I'll see you later?" Her name was called and so she stood at the line as the other long jumpers got themselves in position. Luna was easily able to beat their distance thanks to her light body and knowledge of how to reduce air resistance, she didn't even have to use her powers to run and jump and land with grace at the end, hair whipping behind her. Not Olympic level, but enough to win a silly school contest. She managed to pass the pole vault and the high jump too, returning with two golds and a silver to show for the team.

Eventually it was time for the swimmers to have their hour in the limelight, the water sports were in action. Luna sat with Xavier on the sidelines as he was sweating from all the hard work he had been doing. "Who's winning between you and Ronan?" She asked Xavier with a snide smirk, obviously cheering for her boyfriend in their silly stupid contest of theirs. "It's a tie right now. But I'll win in the end." Xavier said but he already looked tired while Ronan was still going like a bull, full of stamina and power. "Hah, just give it up. Ronan's stronger than lanky Xavier." Someone came next to them, giving them both ice water, Damian sitting on Xavier's other side. "I believe in my boyfriend." Damian said with a supportive smile. Luna rolled her eyes and went back to cheering for Yui as she competed against Ren, who was also on the swim contest.

"Go Luna!" Yui yelled, waving from the stands as Lulu took her turn. "You can do it!" Ren called, cheering for her too. Ishani and Patty were waving signs and screaming, hoping that she could hear them. In the end, Luna came out of it with more medals than any of them had earned so far. Yui ran over to greet her, glomping onto her friend and hugging her tightly. "Great job Lulu! I knew you could do it!" Her smile was wide, it looked as though Luna had been having fun too. "Come on Yui, let's go get ready!" Ishani said, bounding over. "Awesome job Luna!" Patty shook her hand vigorously in congratulations while Ren ran over to pat Luna on the back for her effort. They were all super proud of their pink haired flier, who had proved herself competent. "Uh oh, don't look now, the President of the Track Team is coming over. I have a feeling he's gonna want to recruit you," Ren snickered. "They should! Luna is the best there is!" Yui beamed, Ishani tugging on her sleeve to let her know they needed to get ready.

Yui went to put her team swim suit on, Ishani braiding her long locks and pinning them back for her so that they wouldn't get in the way. They were on the team together and although Ren had tried out, he hadn't made it. He was fine with it, however, since he had joined the archery team instead, proving proficient with a bow and arrow. "Alright swimmers! Line up!" A voice called, the lifeguard presiding over it to make sure that it was all safe and sound. Yui took her place on the diving board, having learned how to do fancy dives and flips in order to cut down time and gain speed. "On your marks!" They took their positions, "Get set! Go!" Yui dove into the water, the rush of cold enveloping her. Her hands began to cut through like butter, the only person on the swim team who didn't need to rise for water.

Yui went as fast as her body could carry her, channeling her power into her swim. No, she wasn't using her light bearing gift, but her natural given ability that her lithe body was capable of. She looked up when she reached the end, pulled off her goggles and looked around. Yui was the first one by a country mile. Ishani was right behind her with a few others coming up third and forth. Ren was in the middle, he was close, but not enough to make a rank. "I did it!" Yui squealed in delight. "Wait a second, that's not fair!" Someone else in the pool called, "Isn't she the Goddess? She shouldn't be allowed!" Yui's smile slowly turned into a frown. "I'm sorry Yui," the lifeguard whispered, "We have to make this fair. You'll win this one, but you can't compete in the other races." Yui nodded in understanding, "I didn't use my light bearing gifts though." The lifeguard shrugged, he needed to make sure this was a fair fight for everyone.

As Yui won her race and the lifeguard told her that she couldn't compete in the others Luna was mad so she left Xavier and Damian to go complain or maybe suck his soul into Paradise so he could suffer for all eternity when suddenly she was swamped by a small group of people who she faintly recognized as members of the track team, the leader of whom was grabbing her by the arm. "You're so small and quick! You have to join the track and field team, Luna!" She stared at them, eyes boggling. What was she supposed to do? She didn't want to join any stupid team, she just wanted to relax and not worry about anything! "Um, but I um, erm..." Why couldn't she just send them all into Paradise right here and now?

Then someone grabbed her arm. She looked up, expecting it to be Ronan who had come to rescue her from the swarm of stupid drows but it wasn't, it was someone with flaming red hair and a face full of freckles. "Sorry, she's my team member, I have to take her somewhere!" Luna was pulled away and it was Patty, the Irish freak from the land of green things and short men and rainbow gold. Why was this happening? "Those girls were trying to recruit you, weren't they? Next time someone bugs you, just say no! You have to be strong!" Luna puffed her cheeks, shaking her head, pink locks flicking about with each movement. "I-I'm already strong! I beat up a Star once!" She was the strongest light bearer ever in existence!

But then Mr. Scruffles suddenly tackled her, the dog having been let loose by a more mischievous younger girl no doubt. The dog was pinning her down, licking her face vigorously so Patty had to pull the pupper off of her and help Luna back up. The dorm mistress was running after the dog, apologizing profusely for the disturbance. "Nah, it's okay, she's fine. She loves dogs, right!" Luna glared at the evil beast. "Stupid dog." She muttered under her breath, wiping dog spittle off of her face. After this was going to be the trivia test, which they decided was a sport for the brain, and after the trivia contest the Idol Club would finish off the Sports Festival with a theatrical bang.

Yui was upset of course, she was more upset than she was letting on, but she understood too. It wasn't the fact that she was an interstellar being so much as she was being made as an example of. "Why don't you help me judge? It's more fair with two sets of eyes," Ren too, was upset on her behalf. There were plenty of boos and jeers, but the committee had made its decision and was going to stick to it. "That's alright, I have to get ready for the Idol Showcase." She gave her best smile, wrapped a towel around her shoulders, and walked off to find Noise, who would no doubt be already preparing the others. "Good luck Ren!" Yui called over her shoulder, hoping that he too, could take home the gold in a category. Ronan was squabbling with the judges, he too, believed it was unfair that Yui wasn't allowed to compete considering her performance in the three legged race.

Yui was excited for her first idol outfit. It had been designed by Melody and Noise and hand stitched by the Fashion Club, who had offered for Yui to come model for them anytime, her petite size making her the perfect dress form for them to try their styles on. Yui was excited to see the finished piece and just as expected, Noise and Melody were waiting for her in the club room, looking cross. "You're late," the others were already there and making preparations, Yui was the last to arrive. "Sorry, I had a contest," she blushed, looking down at her feet. Melody sighed and pat her wet hair, "Come sit down and we'll start dolling you up," she winked, leading Yui over to a chair. She sat down while Melody began on her hair and Noise her makeup.

They ran through their routine twice more before it was time to line up behind the stage. Right now was the trivia contest, which Patty seemed to be winning at. Yui bit down on her lip nervously, wondering if she would do well. "Don't worry, " Harley said, sending a wink Yui's way. "We either all do well or we all crash and burn!" Rosa laughed, the others grinning. They stood in a circle and held hands, smiling to one another. Once the trivia contest had finished, it was finally time for them to go on. "Who are we?" Melody asked. "Fantasy Dolls!" They replied in unison, heading out onto the stage.

Luna yawned tiredly as the trivia contest, the final part of the day, began. There was lots of people competing in this one, everyone could pick two people to represent your team for this final challenge. As Ishani was still wet from winning them three medals three swim races, and Yui was busy getting ready for her Idol Showcase, Patty and Luna were the ones to play the trivia game. How anyone could understand that horrendous accent was anyone's guess really. "Pineapple!" She answered after clicking the button for their team. "Correct! The answer is apple!" Luna scowled at Patty, turning her head away. "You're just a snobbitall!" She declared as if it was a new divine decree. Patty snickered behind her hand, very much having fun with the trivia game. "It's actually knowitall. And this is the only thing I'm good at, remembering random things."

A question asking about a certain restaurant name ripoff of the Western McDonalds was asked, what the Phillipino version was and Patty clicked their button again, almost screaming the answer at the top of her dumb Irish clover'd lungs. "McDollibees!" She cried, winning them yet another point. Some other teams stared at her in a mixture of wonder and fear as she answered things left and right with that stupid useless knowledge ability she had. "What color hair was Shoku's Moustache?" The next question was asked and once again Patty got it. "None, he didn't have one!" Another point even though Luna was about to click that one. If anyone here got it it should've been her so why wasn't she able to do it? Why was Patty just better at everything than her?

More questions came and went until finally it was decided that Patty and Luna won the contest, earning the gold plastic medals to bring back. For not taking the Sports Festival seriously, they sure did win quite a few as a group. The curtains closed and everyone returned to sitting wherever they wanted, Luna quickly finding Ren and snaking her way in between him and Damian. "And now it's time for the finale of Haven's first ever Sports Festival! As thanks, the Idol Club had formed a group and will give us their best performance to close off the night!" Ren grinned, nudging Luna's leg. "It's Yui! I bet she'll be the best one there!" Luna nodded eagerly, feeling all tired out from all the excitement today. "Yeah!" She was looking forward to seeing Yui at her best. "Everyone, say hello to the Fantasy Dolls!"

Yui stood in position as the lights went dark, the sun beginning to set. She smiled, her heart beating quickly as the curtains parted, revealing their group standing on stage. The crowd went wild, excited for their first ever performance. Melody and Noise joined the audience, eager to see what all of their teaching had accomplished. The music began, Yui slowly looking up s the melody played. They moved in unison, their circle turning into a line, Yui in the center because sh was the smallest. In truth, Noise had been told by the school board to make Yui the center, as their school representative, they thought it would be good to put her face on another product that came from Haven. It was a shame that Luna and Ren didn't join the Idol Club, but they didn't want to push and interfere in the children's lives too much.

How did I live
In a kingdom of thieves
And people who say
Things they don't really mean, really mean
You're only everything I ever dreamed
Ever dreamed of, ever dreamed of
You must be kidding me, did you really think
I could say no

I want you for a lifetime
So if you’re gonna think twice, baby
I don’t wanna know, baby
I don’t wanna know
Everything is just right
But if you’re gonna think twice, baby
I don’t wanna know, baby
I don’t wanna know


Their song came to an end. Their group putting on their final poses. Yui was happy, so happy that she was glowing. She was glad she had gotten to experience this, she was ecstatic that she had finally gotten to perform the musical number they had been working so hard on.

Even as the idol show ended with the first appearance of the Fantasy Dolls, everyone was clapping, impressed by their first number. It was short yes, but it was sweet and the whole crowd loved it. "That's my Yui! They're right to adore her!" Ren said with an approving nod, clearly happy with how bright Yui was and how she just glowed with happiness at being able to dance and perform for everyone. "She's so happy." Xavier's eyes were bright and Noise looked smugly at them. "I did that." She said with a shrug, turning back to watch the performance. "Don't forget we have practice tomorrow too, Luna, Ren. You might not be in the Idol Club but you still have to perform for the wedding in the coming month."

And so they did, but at the same time as idol practicing began - not before Luna and the family and then their friends threw congratulations Yui's way, there was even a present from Mizu sent in the next morning to Yui's mailbox with a video recording of the whole thing, no doubt Ronan had been taping the show. But now was testing season, the first round of tests was going to begin. It wasn't so bad for Luna and Yui whose tests weren't going to be super formal and difficult yet, but starting at grade 7 and up, they were very formal and rigid about ensuring all the children had their education on par with the rest of the world. "Help, I don't remember how to do this kind of math." Luna complained to Yui as she pored over the workbooks. "Why is there testing? We're already stellar beings, we're beyond humans!"

One night after idol training the girls saw Eliana, Jake, and Finn waiting for them. Earlier today Eliana brought up the idea of having a study session and now they were going to have it in the children's lounge, spreading their workbooks and study notes out. The fifth graders would have tests for math, for general science, for language, and one last one for critical thinking, a new class that was made a few years ago to help young people get better at problem solving and thinking carefully. "This is hard." Luna whined, clinging to Yui for help. It was obvious that she was the worst in the class academically, wasn't it? "It's okay!" Jake said with a big grin. "If we all do bad I'm sure Miss Emily will let us pass because she's nice!"

Yui was beaming, her first performance a success. Her heart pounded in her chest, she was sweating, her hair plastered to her face. They waved as the curtain shut, enveloping them in darkness. "We did it!" Yui squealed, the girls and boy all excited about the fact that their debut had been such a success. There were claps and whistles, flowers were thrown on stage, not that they could catch them with the curtains closed. Yui was lifted onto Rosa's shoulders, the group parading down the stairs and to the front to take a curtsy and bow. Noise and Melody joined them, more flowers and claps and finally, dinner time. People kept coming up to Yui and congratulating her on her dancing. She had been the star of the show, they claimed, the others background characters made up to make her stand out more.

As much as Yui wanted to revere in the afterglow forever, she knew that their midterms were quickly approaching, as well as the wedding. Between studying and dancing, Yui hardly had time for swim team practice and the once a week meeting with the school board for her insight on what was going well and what needed to be fixed. They saw her insight as valuable and often invited Luna and Ren to come if they wanted to. Ren did come once but found it so boring he had yet to show up again, instead telling Yui his thoughts on the boy's side of thing and having her deliver the message. She was fine with it, although she was struggling not to fall asleep at the table.

Tonight was a little bit different, there were no clubs or meetings because tomorrow was their first day of testing. They sat in the Children's Center, their notebooks open. Grade 5 were studying hard, they each wanted to score well for various reasons. Perhaps to make a parent proud or maybe so that they could prove to everyone they weren't stupid. "Math is hard," Yui admitted, only able to grasp the concept with slippery fingers. "Here, it's like this," Jake leaned forward to show them, simplifying the process by making an acronym for them. "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally. There, the order of operations," he grinned toothily, Eliana's eyes widening. She was impressed by his ability to come up with easy ways to remember.

The grade fives were doing their best, studying hard. Tomorrow was the big day and here they were all working together. "I'm sure Aunt Sally is trying her best." Luna made a silly joke, twisting her face up at Jake's mnemonic memory trick he offered them for remembering the order of operations. "What does the Bohr Rutherford model look like again?" Eliana asked and Luna drew it for him, the circle on the inside for the proton, the smaller ones outside connecting for the electrons. Not that Luna would ever realize it or notice, but she proved to not be absolutely terrible at the chemistry portion of their general science class. She was even able to help them remember which elements were metalloids and which ones were alkali metals. Eventually the clock hit nine and that was bedtime. "Good luck, everyone!" Eliana told the class, hugging each member. "Let's all do our best!"

It was test day now. The morning was their language arts test about english, with a section for vocabulary, a section for grammar, and a section on writing a short essay about a character in the latest book that they read, an english novelization of a manga known as My Hero Academia. Luna decided to write about Togo, finding her to be very cool and awesome with how funny she was despite being one of the story's villains. After lunch they had the general science test and while the biology and physics sections made her want to die, the chemistry part was almost easy, she whizzed through it with a cinch. Last but not least was the math test, full of questions to test their knowledge of the order of operations and also fractional math, such as converting fractions to decimals or adding different fractions together.

Once it was all over Eliana decided to throw them a celebration party with some weird sort of bread that she called challah. "It's a special bread my people make every week." She explained, waving it front of a salivating Luna's face, who clearly wanted to dig in and enjoy the pastry. "Can you teach me how to make some?" Finn asked with a grin, Luna had a feeling the Swedish boy had a thing for the Israeli. Often in class he would steal glances away at her. "It's really yummy, Yui, try some!" Everyone was enjoying it, and Eliana seemed pleased. "Let's play video games tomorrow and all hang out together!" Jake suggested with a big eager smile, but Eliana shook her head. "I light a fire until saturday night though." She said patiently. Luna tilted her head. "What about video games has to do with lighting a fire?"

With all of the studying they did, the testing didn't seem so hard. Yui sat down at her desk, answering quetion after question about what felt like everything under the sun. After five long days of tests, the weekend had at last come, putting their first midterm to a close. Many children were looking forward to the upcoming Thanksgiving, when parents would be allowed on campus to stay in the guest dorms and see their children's school. Ally was going to come, which Yui was excited about. Raven and Mizu had claimed that they couldn't make it, but Yui had a feeling they were going to show up anyhow. "I'm so glad the testing is over!" Yui stretched, putting her pencil down. "I'm so proud of you all!" Ms. Emily beamed, she too, was glad that the formal testing was at a close for now. They would have finals at the end of the school year, which were a bit more rigid, but for now, this was all just to make sure that they were keeping up with what was being taught and if their grade level was appropriate. More an evaluation for the teachers than anything, but the students were the ones being punished with the tests.

Yui rose from her seat and headed out to lunch with the others to celebrate. Eliana brought them what was called a challah, which they each devoured a piece of eagerly. "It's so good!" Yui said through a mouthful of food, swallowing hard. Ren came to join them, he was struggling to make friends in his class, finding that his height made him more a draw to the girls who thought of him as an adorable little boy rather than fearing him for being the King of Darkness. As a result, he often took meals with Yui and Luna's class. "Can you teach me how to make it too?" Eliana was in the baking club and often spent time putting her spin on classic desserts. Finn too, wanted to learn the secret to this beautiful bread called challah. "Can I try?" Ren reached across the table for a slice, dipping it into his chicken noodle soup. His eyes sparkled as he bit into the fluffy bread. "This is the best bread I've ever eaten!" He declared heartily.

Yui giggled, it seemed that they all loved the bread. "I'd love to, but I have a lot of meetings and a swim meet this weekend." Yui twirled a lock of hair around her finger, as much as she wanted to slack of, she was busy, busy, busy. She had Idol Club practice, Idol practice for the wedding, two meetings for the upcoming Thanksgiving Day events and parent welcome, as well as their first swim team contest.

And suddenly parent welcome day had come. The parent representing Yui was Ally of course, and she was welcomed to Haven with aplomb, the talented head of the VorTech company. Luna had asked Mizuki to come for her and so she did, the big sister prankster who had really gotten used to the role. Today kids would be paired with their so-called parents or guardians and that was how Luna began wandering around with Japan's First Lady, soon to be married. There was only two weeks now. "I see. And you love throwing my cute little sister around, don't you?" Rhonda nodded with a grin. "Well, yeah. She still needs more practice." Luna had lost her first match, she was too busy staring at the audience to realize what was happening. "Thank you for taking good care of my silly Luna."

Of course there was the question of why Luna Hikari was the little sister of Mizuki Matsuri. The answer to that question was that Mizu had simply adopted her as a surrogate sister since she had lost her own. Was it true? Probably to some extent even if Luna's official guardian and home was with Ally and Leo at Abazu rather than the Imperial Palace. "So is there a reason you didn't score first in your grade?" Mizuki snickered at her once they had private time. Luna scowled, looking away. First place was of course Finn who was probably a bit of a bookworm. Eliana was second, and Yui was third place. Jake got fourth and Luna was dead last, as she knew she would be because books were never a strong suit. "Cuz I'm stupid, of course."

Mizu shook her head, still holding her hand. "But Miss Emily said that you're very intelligent, you just don't apply yourself. Doesn't that mean you're lazy?" Lazy? She wasn't lazy, she tried really hard! For example every night she tried to sneak into Yui's magic box and free her precious Playsystem Vista from the cruel prison Yui locked it in but to no avail! She tried very hard at some things! Just not school things. "I try, it just doesn't work!" She exclaimed, shaking her head. The day after tomorrow the Thankgiving events would start and after that Luna and Ren were given tickets to see the swim team contest and then the wedding was gleaming over the horizon.

As their school representative, Yui would be making a welcome speech as well as give closing remarks at the end. Ren helped her with her speech while Luna played video games, the three of them sitting together in the room until they deemed it perfect. On the big day, the outdoor stage had been prepared to welcome every parent and guardian to their school and show them just how much their kids were thriving in an environment where they could live without the fear of being persecuted for something that was at no fault of their own. Yui stood on stage, she couldn't wait to see Ally, who had arrived minutes ago and had taken her place in the audience beside Ronan, who was beaming proudly. "You should see how well Yui's doing, she's really coming into her own." Ally nodded with a smile, glad to hear that Yui was making friends and becoming more confident in herself.

"Welcome parents and friends!" Yui bound across the stage, the fall foliage dancing as a chilly wind blew across the campus. "To our very first Friends and Family weekend at Haven!" There were stomps and cheers and hugs passed around. "I'm Yui, our school representative and I'm standing here today on behalf of Haven's student body to officially start our Thanksgiving Showcase! Now, please give a round of applause for our first demonstration!" Each club would be putting on a quick demo, they all had about two minutes to show off the things they were working on. Damian was backstage, putting the final touches on his robot, which had been selected to show off just how great the robotics club was. Ren was preparing for the archery demo, where they would shoot apples off of a mannequin's head. The baking club would pass around samples for everyone to nibble on, the two head's of the martial arts club would be performing a demonstration, and the idol club too, would be doing a quick song and dance.

Yui changed into her costume, Melody waiting for her since Noise was sitting next to Mizuki to keep her company. After the idol club was done, Yui quickly put her uniform back on as Rosa handed her a water bottle to quell her parched throat. There were two more clubs, then it was time to send everyone off to look around the campus. "Thank you all for watching! We want to encourage everyone to meet with your student's teachers and ask questions about anything and everything! See you all at dinner!" Yui bound off of the stage, exhausted. Ally wheeled over to meet her, beaming. "Good job Yui!" She said, opening her arms for Yui to run into. The wheelchair almost toppled over, Ronan quickly catching the handles and lifting them back up. "Come on squirt, let's go show Ally all we've been working on," Ronan ruffled her hair, the sibling bond between them having strengthened. Ally was eager to see everything about the school and report back any suspicions to Raven, although so far, the school seemed to be perfectly safe.

A big speech for Parents day? Luna wasn't good at things like this. She may have a dramatic flair, sure, but that flair only really came through in battle. in normal every day life she was more blase and down to earth? Or at least that was what she wanted to think, just a normal practical girl that was absolutely trying to get better at playing this game where you were a human flying around and killing these giant monsters trying to eat you. The martial arts club was going to feature the two strongest, meaning Manus and Rhonda. Luna didn't mind not being one of the strongest yet, this was a new thing or her and she was well aware that her tiny body wasn't the best fitted for this. It was still fun though, and that's what mattered.

During the day Luna and Mizuki happened across Yui and Ally during lunch time, and Mizu decided to sit them right next to her wheelchaired friend. "Haven's weird so far. Any old faces going around?" The First Lady asked with a tilt of the head. Luna thought about it for a while after getting lunch for them both, both sisters loving the taste of seafood above all. "Well, um, during one of the meetings I bothered to attend K was there." It was strange, wasn't Minako supposed to have killed that witch off? How was xe still alive now, then? It left a question mark in her mind that wasn't going to be satisfied without a good answer. "Interesting." Mizu popped a fish chip into her mouth, savoring the taste with a moan. "I'll look into it then. K is quite a loose end to have suddenly showing up now."

Then they saw Natsuo sneaking off with Noise. He had come to represent Ren's guardian though the real reason he was here was just as they all knew. He wanted to see his girlfriend, Noise, and the two could have a private moment of intimacy together. "He's a bit like dad, awkward and dumb." Mizu made a face, peppering the next chip. Luna gulped one down, making a happy face as the fish was just utterly scrumptious, the perfect golden brown. "So I gotta look after him to make sure his love life doesn't go down the drain, y'know?" Luna sighed, knowing her sister's tricks. "Go easy on him, not everyone can take your jokes, sis." Mizu gave a funny smile. "Don't worry! I know everyone's limits!"

They sat underneath the shade of a beautiful maple tree, the lunch room rather crowded with ll of the children and their parents. Yui and Ally had, had a grand time going around to meet everyone. Ms. Emily and Ally had spoken extensively in great detail about lesson plans, Ally drilling her to make sure she was a suitable teacher. After deeming her grade level appropriate, the two of them had exchanged more personal pleasantries and then had parted ways, allowing Yui to take Ally to their club rooms. The photography club had framed a bunch of their photos, showing off each student's best work. Yui's was a picture of her class and Ren, laughing over something as they enjoyed playing games during free time. "Oh Yui, it's wonderful," Ally smiled, taking a picture of the photo on her holo phone. Next they went to the Idol Club, where the girl's and boy's costumes were on display as well as a video playing on a loop of their last performance at the Sport's Festival.

"I didn't want to believe it," Ally said a bit sadly, "but you really are thriving here." Ally had come looking for any excuse to pull Yui out. Instead, she was faced with great educators, amazing clubs, and a campus that could make even a five star hotel look shabby. With this in mind, they settled down to eat lunch underneath a maple tree, Luna, Ren, and Mizuki soon joining them. "Where's Natsuo?" Yui inquired as she tucked into her meal. "Sneaking off with Noise," Ren replied through a mouthful of mashed potatoes. Ren swallowed hard and took a swig of milk, Mizuki asking her question to see if any old faces had popped up. "If they had, I wouldn't know," Ren replied, wiping his mouth. That's right, he had been confined to Ira Shoku's lab for most of his life. "I've seen a few I recognized from the Roppongi Building, but they're kind of afraid of me, so they keep their distance." Luna brought up the resurfacing of K, which had been bothering Yui too, for a while.

Yui giggled, "I think it's nice that everyone's finding love." Yui said as she ate a spoonful of dessert. "Ugh uh, no dessert until you finish your meat." Ally scolded and then leaned back in her chair, sighing. "Please tell me you guys haven't just been stuffing your faces with sweets." Ren and Yui looked away guiltily, at least Luna had a balanced diet of fish. "We've been trying a lot of new things though!" Ren protested, holding his spoon up as though it were a sword.

Luna smiled boldly at the accusation of sweets. Unlike most people, she didn't really like candy or sweets! She preferred savory salty foods more than any of that. Mizuki gave her a knowing almost flirtatious smile. "Don't worry, she's not a sweets girl. She's more salty than anything!" Luna blushed and shook her head, Mizu was always trying to embarrass everyoe! It was just the way she was. Provocative and mean, wasn't she? "Y-yeah, I was eating well!" She always had been a healthy eater. Mizu patted her head and Ally rolled her eyes. It was really nice to see them again and Luna was glad, having missed both her big sisters more than she wanted to admit. "Show off!" Ren stuck his tongue out. "You're just a show off poop who doesn't know the true goodness of candy!"

Mizuki and Ally already knew without having to say it that the both of them were going to have to do a conjoined effort after this. Bringing Raven into the fold, and then investigating everything they could about K and what xe could be trying to accomplish by being involved with the making of this school. With the wedding so close and the children so happy, they really wanted to make sure nothing bad happened. "Well, let's go, show us around!" So Luna and Yui and Ren were forced to show them more of the place, taking a tour, there were even a few events like a goldfish scooping game or a toy gun target shot game with toy prizes. Luna scoffed at the prizes, finding none of them as good as her own Dreamer toy. Yui was likely quite partial to Nemi herself. That didn't stop Ren from being more or less forced to win a prize to hopefully catch Yui's eye, a purple narwhal.

Far too soon the day was ending and Luna was to part ways with Mizuki now because Haven was going to have a closing ceremony for the Parent's Day. All the parents were seated and the different grades had something planned, as the clubs already got to do their performance. The fifth grade class was excited with the exception of Luna of course because she knew Mizu was going to mock her for this. Miss Emily had them practice a choir song to thank them for coming all this way. Luna hated this but she had no choice but to follow Miss Emily's conducting arm to start the song.

Yui was sad that the adults had to leave, she rather enjoyed having Ally around again, even if it was only for a day. Yui gave her closing remarks, thanking everyone for coming to see their wonderful school. Yui was sad that Ally and Mizu had to leave, she wished they could stay there with them. "And now, for our final presentation!" Yui smiled, bounding off of the stage only to come back on with the rest of her class. The fifth grade was the youngest class they had, it was rather uncommon for children under the age of 12 to develop light bearing gifts, hence why the fifth grade was so small. Ms. Emily had been teaching them a very special song she had written for their class to present and the children had been working their hardest to learn it, each one given a special solo.

They were given one hour afterwards to say their final goodbyes. Yui hugged Ally as tightly as she could, the helicopter waiting to take her to England. Ally had a meeting there, she wasn't just here to see Yui, although she wished that could have been the sole reason. There was official Vortech business happening, a deal that would bring advanced technology to England that could potentially protect and help Haven. "I'm gonna miss you so much," Yui said as she nuzzled Ally's shoulder. Ren was waiting for her, he and Natsuo had parted easily, it had been more tearful between Noise and him than he and Ren. Xavier had said goodbye to his family, who had acted as Damian's surrogate family for the day as well. The two boys were sharing a dorm and if the rings on their fingers were of any indication, they were planning on really getting hitched soon.

"I'll see you in two weeks," Ally nodded and wiped the tears from Yui's eyes. "You silly girl, it's not forever." It would feel like it though, because everyday Yui was apart from her family felt like forever. "Two weeks," Ally pat Yui's head. "Two weeks," with one last hug, Ally wheeled across the gate from Haven and to the landing strip, the helicopter and Mizuki waiting for her. "I want to research everything I can about K," Ally said as she and Mizuki got into the elevator. "K is a mystery and I don't like that xe is interfering in the school." The UN was involved, yes, but why K specifically? How had xe survived?

Finally, finally, it was Friday afternoon! The last day of class was over, tomorrow morning they'd be flying back in to Japan, back home with their family and friends. The news went out on it of course, the press was all ready to be present for the occasion as well. "You finally won your first bout, too." Manus grinned at Luna's victory as she managed to use a fancy feat of acrobatics to grapple her enemy's arm with her legs mid jump, knocking him off balance and sending him face first onto the mat where he was downed for the count. "I'll win even more!" Luna's muscles were becoming more toned, she was becoming stronger, stronger. Even without Paradise, she had won! Rhonda gave her a wink and a pat on the back. "Girl power?" She asked, bumping knuckles with the little pinkette.

Waiting for Luna near the lobby was her class, Yui was there too, and Ren. They of course had a mini farewell party planned, their corner of the lobby decorated with little decorations to remind them of the arts and crafts project they worked on for the Thanksgiving celebration. Eliana looked almost sad. "We'll miss you." She said with a shake of the head. "You'll come back, though, right?" Jake nodded with a smirk. "Of course they will! We aren't a class without them!" Even Finn had a look of nostalgia. "You two are a lot more normal than I thought a Goddess and Star would be. I'm sorry for having the wrong idea at first!" As much as Luna hated to admit it, she had gotten used to their company. "Of course we'll be back." She muttered grumpily, looking away. "Stop being so dramatic about it." Ren snickered, patting her head. "She's just trying to hold in her tears." It was just a week, why was he being such a jerk about it!

After that someone else had left something for her and Yui to find in their dorm room. Somehow Patty had found a way through their lock and they were just casually sitting at Luna's bed, waiting for the pair to show up. "There they are, our favorite room neighbors!" Patty stretched out her arms for a hug. Luna scowled, looking away from stupid Patty's face. "Your only ones you mean!" Patty laughed loudly, clapping her hands. "Yes, but you're still our favorites though!" Ishani opened a box, revealing a big card inside as well as a custom handmade plushie Yui's face for Luna and Luna's face for Yui. "Have a safe trip." She said with a more outgoing smile than her usual timid. "We'll miss you!" Why was it so dramatic though? Sure they would miss Monday but they'd be flying back in Tuesday morning!

"I'm gonna miss everyone!" Yui said in earnest, accepting the hugs from everyone. She hugged Luna tightly, "Luna, you did such a good job winning that much! You were super good! I think even Ren is afraid of you now!" Ren rolled his eyes, "I'm quaking in my boots," he joked, nudging Luna against the shoulder. Ronan had given Luna a hearty kiss on the lips before he had to run to his final club meeting for the weekend, he had to turn in his art piece for the contest that would be taking place while he was gone. He didn't think it would win, but he was happy with it so he had put it into the contest regardless. Damian and Xavier couldn't be there to watch the match, but Ren had recorded it for them, having been hoping that Luna would fall on her face and they could all get a good laugh, but it was quite the opposite.

Their classmates had thrown them a wonderful goodbye party, even though they would only be missing one day of school for the wedding. Already, the whole of Japan was abuzz about the royal ceremony that would be coming up. They were making predictions and attempting to report every detail, even if it wasn't yet solid information. The school had been drinking in everything they could and no doubt their friends would be watching the live broadcast, even with the time difference. Yui, Ren, and Luna would be performing for the first time as well and hopefully Japan would fall in love with the idol trio. "I'm excited and nervous," Yui admitted as they headed up to their room for the evening. Something was off, the door was open. Had someone broken in? Yui turned the handle, on edge, until she saw the fluffy red head and sleek black hair sitting on her bed, waiting. "Patty, Ishani!" Yui brightened up, hoping that Luna too, would only think good things this time around.

"These are so cute! Look Lulu, it's you!" Yui smiled as she gave her doll a squeeze, "I love it! I love it! I love it!"Yui rolled around on her bed, as happy as a clam. Patty and Ishani said goodnight, allowing the two girls to pack and prepare for bed. "I've never packed for myself," Yui admitted, "Someone always did it for me," she was a little bit spoiled that way, but most of the time, Yui had gotten used to abandoning all of her possessions as they ran from place to place, attempting to make a home in their new safe house each time they had to leave. Through it all, Nemi the stuffed dog and Ping had been there for her. Now Yui only had Nemi and a photo of Ping to remember her cat by.

Clinging to her new Yui doll made by Ishani - not that she would ever admit that she liked it - Luna got onto the plane. Last night she had to help Yui with all of the packing because the mermaid girl was too spoiled to do it herself. She didn't mind, the bird was happy to help out. She made sure Yui had enough clothes for the weekend, as well as some of their weekend reading material so that they wouldn't be behind a day. It wasn't really homework, it was mostly just there as supplementary to keep the girls up to date on their lessons. Luna's undoubtedly would go untouched. Noise gave Yui her best grudgingly approving smile. "You did good, Yui, and I know you'll be okay." She cast a glance at frowning Luna and tongue-out Ren with a sigh.

"Well, who knows if those two idiots will be okay?" She sighed and got onto the plane as well. Xavier would be sitting with Damian of course, a bit farther back Noise and Ronan were seated together, and then on the other side of the aisle the three children had their spots, Luna at the window and Ren at the aisle so they could both equally enjoy Luna's company. "Little Lulu's so excited to go home and see her big sister." Ren teased, knowing how attached the pinkette was to Mizuki. "Sh-shut up! I'm allowed to be! She's my big sister!" She then showed off her new Yui doll that she loved right to Ren's face. "Look what I have! Aren't you jealous?" Ren snatched it from her, both of them reaching over poor Yui, stuck in the middle of their squabble.

"The kids really are energetic." Ronan said, already looking tired as he was ready to get himself to sleep the ride off. Noise shrugged, shaking her head in a bit of disapproval. "They really are kind of idiotic. Shouldn't they be saving their energy for the wedding?" She rolled her eyes at their antics, looking out the window to watch the plane begin to move across the runway. "You secretly believe in them, don't you?" Ronan nudged the harsh idol instructor in the side, causing her to growl. She was able to put on the happy face as Daisy but when she was in Noise mode she wasn't nearly as friendly. "They'll do perfectly fine. The kids know how important this is." Making a good impression here would help the rest of the world finally stop fearing light bearers once and for all.

"Thanks for helping me pack," Yui said after the suitcase was all zipped up. She was ready for the weekend! Tomorrow morning they'd fly back to Japan on a red eye flight, which meant that they only had a few hours to catch a wink. So Yui flopped into bed, snuggling Nemi and her Lulu doll. "Night, night Lulu, sleep tight, don't let the badgers bight!" She smiled, drifting off to sleep easily. After all, today had been a busy and exciting day for the little star. A few hours later, Ronan entered to wake them up and get them dressed. They didn't wear their uniforms, but comfy clothing that they would be able to move around in on the plane. After putting their clothing on and eating a quick breakfast, the kids got into the bus that would take them to the landing strip, a private plane having been chartered to take them back. "I can't wait to see everyone," Yui smiled sleepily.

Already Luna and Ren were fighting over everything, one insisting that she couldn't wait to see Mizuki, the other saying there was no problem with it. "I can't wait to see Ally and Leo," her surrogate big sister and her boyfriend. Ronan wasn't offended, he knew how Yui looked up to Ally, how Ally had been there everyday during Yui's recovery when he was in jail and not allowed to come anywhere near her. Ronan had to jump through many hoops in order to be allowed to come into contact with his baby sister, although Raven had vouched for him every step of the way. He was thankful for that, without Raven, who was technically Loretta's legal older sister, Ronan would no doubt be wasting away somewhere after being released from prison, perhaps drug seeking or getting into fights. Without those two in his life... Ronan wouldn't know where he would be. "Guys, try to catch some shut eye. Alright? At least six hours, remember?" He sighed, wanting them to settle down.

"I brought a blanket!" Yui chimed, pulling her blanket out of her bag. She wrapped it around her shoulders, the three children looking out the window as they went full speed ahead and took off into the sky. Yui was already feeling sleepy, she closed her eyes and the next thing she knew she was being awoken for landing. Her stomach growled hungrily, crossing time zones and flying sure made one build up an appetite! "Oooh, I want Marion Crepes!" Yui cheered, excited to go back to her old home.

Upon landing the children were given some time to play around before the bridal party before the wedding itself. Landing in Japan, it was the early morning and there was a few hours until the bridal party began so they could do as they wished be it sleeping or playing or doing whatever else. Luna's first act was to grab her Playsystem Vista to play for hours since Ronan was the one who hid it to make sure his girlfriend was going to get some shuteye on the flight. Landing in Tokyo Mizuki and Raven were both there, looking closer than ever. "Hello I love you sorry we don't have time we have to set up party." Raven said in a quick slur of words before running off, kissing everyone on the cheek. Mizu sighed, and shook all of their hands. "Um, I'll go make sure she doesn't kill herself by accident."

Was it any surprise that Raven was the one obsessing over things while Mizuki was clearly taking things easy in the final day before the wedding itself? No, no one really was surprised at all about this. "Well, let's go then. It's great to see all of you!" Ally said, letting Leo push her wheelchair. "I know we should save our energy for the party this evening, but what say we go get crepes for old times sake?" Surely Yui would like that idea, and Luna rolled her eyes, not liking them too much herself but she knew that they made Yui happy. "Why are you wheelchaired? What about your rotor motor?" Luna asked, looking up from her game in worry. The tech wizard was supposed to be free from the chair, wasn't she?

"Oh, don't worry about me, silly! They just wear out my body so I'm saving them for the bridal party tonight." Oh, that made sense Luna supposed. "She also has them in the shop for upgrading." Leo said with a snicker as Noise was hugged by Natsuo who gave Luna a smile at the same time. "Hello." She remembered him as a brother but she knew she wasn't really close to him. He was in different circles and in the end was busy fighting his own fights in keeping the Empress safe. It was an important job, but it meant that while he and Mizuki remained close, he and Luna never got a chance to bond. "I'm glad you're okay." He patted her head with a bit of awkwardness to it. Luna wanted to get close, but she had no idea how. She probably wouldn't able to, either, and that made her sad.

Most recent OOC posts in Re: Start

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.

β˜› 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.

β˜› 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.

β˜› 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.

β˜› 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.

β˜› 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

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

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

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

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

β˜› 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:

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

β˜› 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.

β˜› 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.
