The crickets chirp happily as the yellow burning sun sets in the distance. The sky looks like a summer-time punch, streaked with bright orange and pink. The colorful array of light reflects off the spotless windows in a grey scale cul de sac, making all of little houses look even more alike. Children play in the distance, getting stains on their best pants and creating a lull of laughter that can be heard from every porch. Men in khaki pants and loosened ties gather around a low fire pit with beers in their hands. Their husky voices add a rumbling texture to the neighborhood symphony. Women gossip about each other in small groups, creating well manicured pods of elegant fashion along the street. An adulterous romp happens quickly and quietly behind closed shudders. Plush green grass frames the neutral colored houses that scatter the rounded bulb at the end of the road. Stark white doors give the illusion of purity and perfection.

This is the all American dream.

Until you get to know your neighbor.

Behind those white doors lie some of the most notorious characters in the nation. Some houses hold innocent bystanders, brought here by the witness protection program. Others have specific missions and goals. Whether they be skilled, ordinary, meek, or wild, no one in this neighborhood is who they seem.

After years of preparation several parts of the government have created 5 undercover households. The FBI Agents, the Mercenaries, the Dealers, the Retired Agents, and the Protected Witnesses. This neighborhood wasn't designed to be the hub of one of biggest federal missions, but it just so happens that everyone staying in these dull colored houses are intertwined in some way. Each household has a mission, but not everyone is loyal to their party. With personal drama, and an unlucky amount of coincidence, we find ourselves in The Neighborhood.

THE FBI AGENTS
Agents 3130 and 4432 have only just begun their first mission together. Both of strong will and sharp minds, they bicker more than they converse. Two of the governments best agents, they struggle to find balance between following and leading. If they don't shape up soon, it's only a matter time before someone gets hurt. Mission: Infiltrate THE DEALERS database. Collect enough information to find their freight and stop the illegal weapons from entering the United States. Collect enough data to freeze THE DEALERS accounts.

The MERCENARIES
These two have had their time in the sun, engaging in an illustrious affair together when they first met. However, that fire has fizzled out. They remain strong friends and good work partners. Mission: The corporation, Balto, who put THE PROTECTED WITNESSES into the program, is hunting them down. THE MERCENARIES were hired to get close to THE PROTECTED WITNESSES, find their strength and weaknesses, find out if they are useful to Balto. If not, execution is necessary.

THE DEALERS
As powerful business partners, these weapons dealers make quite the pair. Though they've strictly been business, a fickle love connection has brought them together over and over again. Pretending to be a couple might send them over the edge. Mission: Lie low in the suburbs while their latest shipment comes in. Get intel on THE RETIRED AGENTS, perhaps they'll get back into the business for the right amount of cash.

The retired agents wanted to settle down and raise a family. They actually moved to this neighborhood so their young son could have a yard to play in. Leaving the service was the most difficult decision of their marriage. Maybe it's coincidence what's happening in the neighborhood, but maybe it's a sign. Mission: Create a normal family. Get a normal, safe job.

1. Creativity I expect individual creativity and effort in these posts.
Please bring your own ideas, plots, and IC drama to this RP. I want collaboration!
Character development should be hearty and honest. I expect flaws, boundaries, secrets, and hopes.
Side missions and personal goals should be developed. I will assign some side missions as characters discover information or meet new people.
2. Commitment I want this RP to flow. If you can't post at least once a week please step away. I'll also be using Discord to initiate most communication if the majority is down for that. Let me know if this is an issue for you.
3. Communication This is key. Firstly, letting me know when issues arise.
Secondly, communicate with each other. This RP is to become a community of writers.
Thirdly, don't be afraid to ask questions and bring new ideas to the plate.
4. Commons Please abide by the rules of RPGateway.
5. Keep it real. Peace up.

You'll have 48 hrs from the time you submit a request from a character to finish your character sheet. If you have extraneous circumstances shoot me a PM and we'll talk about getting you an extension. I would love to get this thing up and running in the next week or two, if possible!

P.S I would prefer writers to double up so we have fewer real people to keep track of. However, if you really feel like you can't do two characters it will not hurt your chances.

P.P.S I haven't decided what character I want for myself... So just go for it and I'll fill in the missing links!

Hedda was awake. Her fierce blue eyes blinked in the darkness, staring at the red straight numbers that illuminated in front of her. They read 3:27AM. With another blink, 3:28AM. She sighed, letting out an audible breath of tension. Her eyes wandered for a moment, trying to make out the dark shadows of the room. Across from her was a large window, the thick curtains were drawn, making the room even heavier. A sliver of light shown through from the street lamp, creating a crooked line that stretched from the ceiling across the bed and just barely brushed the floorboards.

Emma. Hedda needed to become Emma in the morning. A gnawing pit flipped in her stomach as Hedda shifted in the bed. Her blue eyes now studied the face in front of her. He had dark hair that was usually well kept, clear olive toned skin, creased smile lines, and mysterious chocolatey eyes. He was handsome, in that suspenders and glasses kind of way, but it was enough for Hedda to make it believable. She had argued for separate beds, but Hedda's handler quickly nipped that argument in the bud. Bonding was vital to the success of the mission.

There was nothing more that Hedda wanted than to be alone. Was it too much to ask for a solo mission? Thinking about this she rolled her eyes. Yes, it probably was. "Play nice." was all her handler could say before sending Hedda to this God forsaken cul de sac. Granted, it had only five days, but she could already tell that this was not going to be some walk in the park.

Hedda rolled over again, facing away from him and closed her eyes.





It was a Saturday. Some civilian in the neighborhood was throwing a welcoming bash for the Wallermans. Emma had met her briefly upon moving boxes into their new home. The woman's name was Georgia. Georgia and Greg Gilbertson. How quaint. Emma stood in the kitchen, staring at a recipe for 'belly stretcher salad,' which really wasn't a salad at all. Whipped cream. Marshmallows. A variety of fruits. Walnuts. Bananas cut up on top. Emma shook her head. Cooking was not her strong suit. She let out a sigh of annoyance. She could kill a man twice her size in under 20 seconds, but ask the girl to follow a recipe and you're screwed.

Emma looked around for a moment, self-conscious that Alan might see her struggling. "Okay." she said to herself. Emma's clean hands reached for the apron with a trendy cacti print on it. She effortlessly tied the ends behind her as peered down. She frowned. After second thought, Emma shrugged her shoulders and tried not to smile.

A knock at the door interrupted Emma scooping out a tub of whipped cream. Instinctually she wiped her hands on the apron, though there wasn't a trace of misplaced food. Emma opened the door to find Georgia. "Well, hello! She said in a chipper tone. "Hon," Georgia started "I just wanted to tell you that I invited nearly everyone on the cul de sac. It's turned into a really neighborhood fling!" Georgia exclaimed with her frail hands thrown up in the air. She was a petite woman, with a subtle twang in her voice. Standing at about 5'2 and plump as a peach, Georgia clearly had the body of a woman with more than three kids.

"Oh," Emma said, thinking about her cover. "That is just the sweetest thing you could have done for me and Alan." Emma looked over her shoulder, with the idea of Alan magically appearing at the right moment. "So," Emma cleared her throat. "Who else is going to be here?" She asked sheepishly. Trying to hide her true intentions, Emma leaned against the door frame with big curious eyes. "Anyone I should... watch out for? You know?" She asked in a hushed voice, bending down slightly to get closer to Georgia. The short woman laughed. "Oh honey, no. All the new folks in this neighborhood are just down right fantastic. The Jacobs, the McKenzies, the Sheffields. Every one of them. Nothing to worry about my dear. My kids run around the neighborhood and I know they're safe. I can see how you might have your guard up though, with wanting a baby and all," Georgia reached her hand out and grazed Emma's empty stomach. Emma awkwardly jutted back before turning the reaction into part of a nervous laugh.

"You can't be too careful," she said. Looking behind her again, then out at the lawn Emma was purposefully distracted. I really must go. There's a only a couple hours, and I was just making up something for the barbecue... and... Well..." Color rose to Emma's pale cheek. Blushing was a skill she was particularly good at. Emma whispered this time, "I'm ovulating. Georgia grinned at Emma before turning around with a wink. "You go and give that boy some fun!"

All Emma could do was mumble some agreement before slamming the door. She stood with her back to the door for a moment. "Alan!" She called in a guttural quality. Emma took off the apron in a rush. It was time to do some research.
