The Inheritance House

Introduction

(( The household is full, but I am making the swamp, and property a somewhat free roam on writing. This adds some life to the surrounding area, and something to do when your waiting on someone to post. Just PM me first. ^.^ Happy Writing. ))

A young man just inherited an old plantation house that has been passed down for generations. Each generation had its own style. First it was a cotton field filled with slaves, then their were the witches, some vampires, an evil satanic worshiper, a series of poltergeist, a lychanthrope, and a murderous old woman with demonic powers. Over seven generations of misfit family members and it continues on. The new owner is the only surviving relative of this family, and the property is quite large. So he mailed the Special Beings Real Estate Agency, and said that his home is open for free rent, as long as they new residents cleaned up after themselves. Now the requests are sent, the applications received, and the residents are moving in. Anything could happen in a misfit household with hidden curses, an aura of ancient black magic, and poltergeist/ghost wandering the halls. Can you keep up?

Here is a little family history.

About seven generations ago there was Great X 6 Grandmother Victoria. She was a demon-witch who studied and controlled lesser demons, black magic curses, and even all of the medicinal and toxic uses of the swamp. At the time, Victoria had slaves, but they weren't just the African slaves, that everyone bought. She saw no line between the races, and enslaved most everyone who annoyed her. They became mindless working zombies. One marvelously dreary afternoon a woman came by, trying to sell a new generation witchcraft book. Victoria refused, with a few strong words attached. This insulted the woman deeply, and she along with a few other witches from the organization cursed Victoria. Twenty generations of abnormal children. They weren't deformed or anything, they just would never fit in with most people. Each generation was different starting with her child Herald who was a Lycan, then his child Sarah who was a cross between a Lycan and her mother's vampirism. Sarah had twin demons named Lucy and Saty. They had been locked away into a prison of the demon world for destroying the magical land that used to be where the Gulf of Mexico is now. They receive visitation from Zaole when he is allowed. The Vampire was named Callie and the Zombie was named Thomis. Callie died, and Thomas married a witch who practiced Voodoo. She gave birth to a daughter who talked to dead people. Her name was Tracy. She was the most normal looking of the family, and went to public school. In her spare time she talked to ghosts of all breeds, and help a few cross over or talk to a lost loved one. Her family did not like her for her perfectly human looks, but blood is thicker then water. The family died out and and the woman inherited the house. Her child was Jaole. He looked mostly human, but had an angelic look to him, that is halfway demonic as well. The only things that separated him from angels is that his wings are black, there is no halo, and he talks to Ravens and crows.




Races Allowed
Fallen Angel (Not sure what to call these, they aren't angelic. Basically they have black wings like a Ravens, and can control the shadows.)
Spirit, Ghost, Poltergeist
Lychanthrope
Vampire
Shape Shifter
Wiccan/Witch Human
Zombie (no brain eating :P)
Franken Stein Like Creation
Shadow Pixies

Have any other ideas? Just let me know before making your character!

Other Ideas for none household Characters
Intelligent animals that can speak (maybe like a witch's familiar sorta deal.)
Monsters/Creatures that live within the swamp
Wondering Spirits (used to scare, and creep people out.)
Have another idea that isn't up here, then just let me know!

The time period is modern, but the plantation house does not have internet, or cable.
You can have up to three characters, if you think your up to it. Also just make sure to keep your characters noticeably separate when you post.

Toggle Rules

The rules are quite simple:
Keep it appropriate, but I do allow romance, and some violence. When clothes go off, please go into private.
Killing is prohibited, unless the owner of the character allows it.
Not everyone can be a Vampire! Also you cannot shine in the light!
This is somewhat of a free write RP, but if anyone has some events they could come up with, I don't mind making it happen.
Literacy is a must, and descriptiveness is a great friend to have.
Also enjoy yourself!

Her fingers were wildly twirling at the dirty, broken lace at the waist of her dress. She'd obviously frightened him and, of course, that had not at all been her intention. Also, he was telling her he had bad manners? What nonsense was that? The doll had been the one to disappear suddenly, in mid-conversation, and return tumbling through the cabinet under the sink.

She did however need a wire brush. Perhaps she could "kill two birds with one stone"? A horrid statement, but it worked well enough for the situation at hand.

"I suppose I need a brush for my hair." She crossed her painted eyes up to peer at the tangled mess resting on her head. It had been getting worse and worse with time, as many things did, and Regina could take it no longer.

"How about I show you around the house and look for a wire brush at the same time?" She smiled wide, folded her hands neatly in front of her jointed body. "It could be something of a scavenger hunt! I do love scavenger hunts!" And he was a very agreeable tenant. Regina wasn't worried about the others, but none had produced themselves as of late, so she would stick around with the refreshing young man.

"And perhaps we will run into your other housemates?" Now she was just prattling on, but it was nice to speak to someone other than the other spirits in the halls. She'd been here for decades now, maybe longer, and so she knew everyone's story, or at least the the rumored ones.

#, as written by Tartha
Dale smiled and slung his satchel across a shoulder. He placed his hands firmly on either side of him, and swung himself off the counter with a quiet 'heave-ho.' He dusted himself off in a cursory manner, and smiled at the small woman.

If I found a way to amplify my sight I wonder if I could see the spirit residing within the doll? Spirits were not always the easiest to read, but they tended to be more expressive than wood and bolts. He had the suspicion that if he could 'tap into' the same frequency that was keeping her tied to the doll (he assumed that she was not *originally* a doll), he could see her, even without amplification. As it was she sort of had a pale glow that changed subtly from one moment to the next.
Humans, bless their souls, tended to have the easiest spirits to read. While the tended towards 'messy' and complicated, they didn't have any experience (usually) in manipulating their own spiritual wavelengths beyond what was instinctual. Therefore, once you got used to the raw confusion usually accompanied by something spiritually strong and untamed, they were fairly easy to read... his mind wandered back to the kitchen abruptly.

Looking down at the woman with a slight nod he replied, "I think that would be quite enjoyable."

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

I want to continue the rp to but if it's just you and me then i'tll be a little boring :P

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

Ahh. It really is a shame that it's dead. Oh well. If anyone knows of any good other games let me know. ^.^ It was fun for the short while it lasted.

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

i'm still up to continue this rp if anyone else is.

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

We can't let an awesome rp like this die ...

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

Welp. Dale will continue to wait in suspended animation. I've done my bit. ;P

So uh... I take it this rp is dead? Confirmation: yes/no?

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

She could show him the garden/swampy thingy.. And i'm waiting for the house spirit to do anything before Charles can come to life again :P

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

SORRY!!!! I know Dale is waiting on Regina right now! Gods honest truth, I have no idea where she should take Dale first, considering no one else is alive in here either. And I've been so consumed with 2 other rps that I just got lost in a whirlwind of words and plots and sentence structure. And the site maintenance had me all wigged out. @[email protected] That was nutso.

If I can think of something good, I will definitely post before the day is through!

SORRY!!!!! T_T I am so sorry!

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

This rp sure is quiet people >.>
Where is everybody?

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

/nods /nods

I'm going to recommend "Natsume's Book of Friends" then. It's not quite as... zany (?) as Holic, but it's still fun. ^_^ I saw someone cosplay Yuuko well once. I was so astounded all I could do was gape and stutter something, "I, you, amazing, shake hand?" She just smiled all coyly at me.

My Dad is rather fond of the phrase, "Can't swing a dead cat without hittin' someone you know." I figure that takes the cake for icky common-place sayings. ^_^' Ahh, but it's good to be back.

Errgh. I had to really stretch that post to make it more then 100 words. Really STRETCH it. I think was maybe 50. 'cause. You know. Sometimes the mind is blank, and the actions are brief. A bit like the dialogues Cormac McCarthy writes (great writer--even if his subject matter is not my normal fair). Bulk does not always mean 'talent.' At least, that's what I tell myself when I can't come up with two words to string together. ;) ;)

Edit: S'all good. Let's just keep this ball rollin'.

_______________________________________________________

Ya'll think I should make another character to go traipsing about in the swamp with? I'm tempted. Might give me something to distract myself with while Dale loiters about in the house. Hmm...

Edit-Edit:
Kids? Ya'll out there somewhere?

It would appear... that I am all alone.

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

I love Holic. Yuuko makes me one happy person. As does Watanuki. :) Much love there.

And btw, the Lady Gaga thing is AWESOME! I am hearting it all over the place!

Edit- Dude... My post sucks. But I am so tired right now, its not even funny. I will make up for it later, I promise!

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

I'm going to teach! I'm not going to learn! I refuse! (I have Chinese Language classes in the morning, in which I go and struggle to learn the language, and I have English Language classes this afternoon which I teach--I'll go do that when the time comes.)

I'll let you know how teaching goes after. ^_^

So, while I was internet-free I watched all of "Natsume's Book of Friends," and I'm afraid that no matter what I do, Dale will sort of drift towards being a bit Natsume-like. I've always enjoyed those types of stories... reminded me of xxxHolic (Yuuko I love you like chocolate--sadly I had to give the series up when it blended with T. C. because I refuse to watch all of C.C.Sakura AND T.C. /ugh). But Dale is a bit lesss...... energetic then Watanuki.

P.S. - If you have seen Lady Gaga's music videos, specifically Bad Romance, you should watch this: http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/ZJNMDmI8VTA/
No really, it's pro.


Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

Bad Yeye! Go teach the youths of America Britain....China? >.>
Anyways! Go teach >:[
We are patient and you have a duty to do :P
Plus, I want to know how teaching goes :3
...But you don't really have to go >.>
Though you should >:3

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

I'm baaaaack.

I'm sorry I disappeared for so long! Between tests and internet-outages life pulled me kicking and screaming away from the 'House! However! After... oh I have a class I need to teach to today. This evening I shall return with a most huge and marvelous post. Promise! My greatest and humble apologies!

Edit: Screw it. I'm not going to class today. I don't want to. I'm nervous as heck, I got a new job (teaching English) that I start this afternoon, I didn't finish the homework, and I just plain don't want to. So, I'm gonna make a post instead. (psst--good children don't play hooky--they go to class)

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

I share this query. Tartha... where have you gone? T_T

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

so ummm..............who's gonna post?

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

I just have to find the time to reply to what happens in Charles room with Ms.House spirit. Then all will be walking on sunshine again :3

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

I am doing Marvelous :P
Yourself?

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

is everything going good for everyone?

Re: [OOC] The Plantation House

No worries! I'm finishing up a post right now and of course, Regina found her way back to Dale. :) Everyone else has something going on, so I couldn't really fit her in anywhere else. Lol!!!
