((CLOSED!!)At a Circus where your payment is getting to live another day, anything can happen, but it's up to you to choose what will.

Introduction

What do you think of when you hear the word circus? Do you think of clowns preforming humorous skits, acrobats walking across the thinest ropes, and animal tamers bravely facing ferocious lions? Or do you think of kidnapped children, empty, dark alleyways, and the sound of a whip hitting flesh and causing blood.

The Claudius Circus, created and founded by Neil Claudius himself, is a traveling circus, famous for their nearly perfect performances, but behind all the masks makeup and costumes, what really happens? To the public, the circus is made up of the finest performers in the world, able to perform seemingly impossible stunts with what looks like ease, but is that real? Are the smiles of perfectly white teeth and bright red lips as genuine as they look?


Welcome to the Claudius Circus.

Where your wildest dreams will come true.


What's going to happen:
Your character works at the Claudius Circus, a 'Circus' of sorts, but not by their choice, no no, your character is being held against their will... Well more or less. See, the deal is, in some way or another you owe Neil Claudius. Maybe he had information about you that you can't stand to get out, or maybe he did something for you, something that you could never pay him back for, and therefore you have to work there.

Running isn't an option; you wouldn't make it a mile before he'd track you down. Neil's actions make it seem like he is never around, never there to reprehend bad behavior, but it is quite the oposite. Always lurking in the shadows, always keeping things in balance, and make one step out of place, and expect to be attacked.

The only option is to push yourself to your extremes. Preform well, and maybe you'll be spared the weekly whipping that someone is bound to get. No pain, no game, right?

Lillia James

Lillia stared at the cub with interest. She giggled at the small sound the cub made as it attempted an attack on Liam's hand. She squatted down next to him and Zane and reached out to pet him. She rubbed her hand on his stomach and he clamped onto it. She giggled as his teeth gently nibbled and licked on her fingers. "So Cute!"

A big smile on his face Liam looks first at Lillia than at her older sister. He gestures with his head as if to say ' Come on, play with yuor sister.' then looking back at Lillia " Do you want to see Zane do a trick?" he asks pulling out a piece of hotdog. and holding it infront of Zane.

((Okay... I've tried to post three times so sorry if this seems half assed. oh. and sorry I haven't been posting. I've been busy))
Nona and Lillia James

Nona smirked and moved to sit next to Liam. Why did she need to play with her little sister if she was already playing with the tiger cub. He made cute little sounds as he played with Lillia's hand. His claws were retracted and his teach barely nibbled on her skin. It tickled her and made her laugh. Shenzi came up behind them and laid down, yawning loudly. Nona chuckled and stroked the big cat's fur. "Good girl." she said.

Re: The Claudius Circus

...It is the next day. :\

Re: The Claudius Circus

We've been doing that one night for five days and it's not fair to other characters to have to wait a few more days for you guys to finish with that scene, you guys said you are running out of ideas so move on to the next day. This is just the first night there are many more days to come! Save some bonding time for the future. That's why I think other people aren't posting, you guys kind of dragged out that day way too long, I don't know if anyone else agrees, but that's how I feel...

Re: The Claudius Circus

Most characters have already gone to sleep or have done as much as they can do so far, so I think we should move on to the next day. We can all bond over animal manure and acrobatic stunts in the morning :D

What season are we in?

Re: The Claudius Circus

It is more of less, the beginning of the night. But why isn't anyone (excluding Bubbleyum and Tonks) posting?

Re: The Claudius Circus

IS it the morning time yet???

Re: The Claudius Circus

Oh Gosh I know this excuse is getting old and stale, but I am sorry I wasn't on. I will post today definitely!!!

Re: The Claudius Circus

Sorry I didn't post today! I didn't feel well, I will post tomorrow though. Forgive me please :3 Lol Thanks guys~

Re: The Claudius Circus

Come have him say hello to Nala. She can handle him.

Re: The Claudius Circus

Pop into a tent or something or wait for day 2. Is the mod going to call the end of day one or do we just progress?

Re: The Claudius Circus

Aww why is Hector all by himself, we all know hes a pervert but don't ignore him.

Re: The Claudius Circus

Liam mostly, although they do all work together for live shows. The kids are in every other show, and won't be in the first, By the way. They will be helping out back stage... errr tent

Re: The Claudius Circus

Is Alec apprenticed to Liam, Nona, or both?

Re: The Claudius Circus

Hey you guys! My Onii-chan has this roleplay called Black Rock Shooter: The Final Twelve, and he still needs some more players! Me and Beach-Born-Boy started already, but, we still need more players if we wanna keep to the real story!

Re: The Claudius Circus

OH, and the gypsy and her apprentice have a tent here, but they don't always stay there because sometimes they prefer the outdoors.
So they have tent 6.

Re: The Claudius Circus

So, here's the deal of what's going on when the rp starts, and rooming.

OKay, so basically the circus has been travelling for the past two weeks, and before hand, they were at a circus site with large, singular tents, giving everyone, or every family their own room, as are most places, keeping the performers apart and not allowing them to get to know each other too well. But there have been budget cuts recently, restricting the number of tents, so now, there are 6 tents, and the circus master has organized them on a strict list.

So when your character gets of the traveling train, this sign is posted on a telephone pole in the front of the land area.

Tent 1:
Neil Claudius (NPC)

Tent 2:
Hector Reven (BubbleYum)

Tent 3:
Annie Marne (Happyface)
Kagami Utatane (Angel51897)
Rodney Merchland (Shudderfox-)

Tent 4:
James "Moe" Stein (Deallo)
Coraline Georgina Grant (Quitelovely487)
Nona James (xXxCryptic-AngelxXx)
Liam O'Connor (Tonks)

Tent 5:
Alec Ross (Wild1)
Atheena Leena (Happyface)
Nazo Hono (Adoda)
Xiao Valentino (FaithsAngel)
Lillia James (xXxCryptic-AngelxXx)


First post will be up soon!

Re: The Claudius Circus

No, I think I'm just going to wait. And, I wont be on at all tomorrow so it would not be a good time to start.

Re: The Claudius Circus

Ok, but we could start and not do any real major plot things. So that it's easy for the others to catch up.

Re: The Claudius Circus

Well, I was trying to do it tonight, but that wont work. So it will definitely be on monday.

Re: The Claudius Circus

Hey I forgot when is this going to start again?
