Souls are like flowers. They begin as seeds, small and hard, slowly opening up and blossoming in response to the world around them. They had the potential to grow large and beautiful with soft petals of gentle colors, or slowly wither with darkness, and wilt; eventually dying. The soul is similar to a flower, easily corrupted fragile, and largely determined by our ambitions. Each soul is given the gift to determine whether or not they will rise to meet the occasion, or fall short of expectations.

When the earth was new and the Gods were young, the heavenly beings resided in a romantic province known simply as, Heaven's Garden; a place on earth whose entryway was only revealed to those who had been chosen as worthy to occupy a seat next to the Gods. Tired of their boring little world, the Gods sought those who they could toy with and would not so easily break; and so, the yokai were born. Although not as powerful as the Gods, they were a force to be reckoned with. Despite their humble beginnings, many yokai quickly became rotten. Their souls were corrupted by darkness and greed, they sought a higher purpose than serving the Gods and began to plot the revolution of Heaven's Garden.

Before their plans would ever come to fruition, the Gods threw the yokai a wildcard. Created from seedlings, they were precious creatures that the Gods looked after and tended to with care. The yokai became sick with jealousy and rage. Even the Gods' most trusted yokai turned on them and tore into the garden of humans, causing carnage and loss. Instantly the yokai were expelled from the Garden and dragged the rest of the human saplings with them to earth, spreading the seeds throughout the world and unconsciously populating the planet.

As time went on and the world developed, yokai evolved as well. They created glamours in order to seamlessly blend into the human populace, deceiving many into believing that they were of the same species. The yokai created conglomerates and kingdoms, pulling the strings through veils and inside the safety of their own homes. They couldn't allow their glamours to be seen through, not if they wanted their aliases to remain safe.

Their methods, while proven to be effective, were... Unconventional to say the least. The Yokai worked for their own personal gain, tempting humans and whispering sweet nothings in their ear in order to steal their most precious belonging; their souls.


Image

Image
The first rules were discovered when they were broken, but even thieves have a code of honor. Humans have always been weak, narrow minded creatures who obsess over one thing and allow it to destroy them. The Yokai, they could see into your heart, grant your desires, toy with your emotions. They whisper temptations in human ears, stealing souls, making contracts that would forever bind any mortal to their service.

A dangerous dance with the balance of two worlds treading on thin ice, it begins with a wish. Of course, no such thing would come without strings. Should you choose to use the service's of the yokai, your soul will be bound to their service. A wish for a favor. After this, the entirety of your existence will be meaningless. In the end you are nothing more than a meal for a boss who can decide whether or not to feast on you based on if you are still useful.

Even among the lowest of mortals there is an ethical code. Once a soul has left the body, it cannot be brought back. No dead can return, no lives can be taken by the hands of a yokai. There are loopholes of course, such as a yokai can lend its power so that a human can take another life. It works as a contract, before the wish is seen through, the terms must be met and signed by both parties. After the human's wish has been granted, they are forever indebted to the yokai and must carry out their will like the yokai once did for the Gods.


ImageImageIn a future of made of gleaming metal and glass, two rival yokai bosses have rose to power in the beautiful city of Tokyo. They live to steal souls, to gain clients, to make their companies grow. On the surface they appear to be normal conglomerates but on the inside, something very different is going on. The yokai employee humans who are under contract, but these humans, they've been cheated. Their wishes have been fulfilled but under yokai terms. The humans are not happy and have come to the decision that they will not be held liable, they will fight back before their souls are consumed and lost forever.

Dialogue#16A0FF
Thought#720CE8

As Rakan mixed together the potions he thought about his life up to this point, he wondered if his life was worth running for ever or if he should just turn himself in without a fight. He wondered if William and Jennora would even try to help him, however Jennora was technically wanted by the court marshal's too, so if he left William's office then Jennora could possibly be safe from the court marshals. He had no doubt that William would help her as well, she was a great asset to have. His chest hurt as he continued to mix the ingredients into a large bowl, and adding in the liquid potions when the dry mix was complete.

He heard his name, faintly, that's when Mei left his head. "Mei! Hurry back, we have to be quick!" He told her in a hushed whisper, almost sounding scared.

His hands started to shake as he grabbed a piece of white chalk, and drew a circle on the ground floor. He placed Jennora into the circle and motioned for Mei to join her. "Mei join her, we don't have much time to do this." Rakan spoke to Mei as she came back into the room. Rakan sighed as his eyes fell on Emi, who Mei was guiding into the room. He didn't want to explain what was about to happen or that she would never see him again. Rakan sighed as he looked over at Emi, meeting her eyes. "Emi, I need you to stay by the wall. I have to change Mei and Jennora back." He stated to the small child, holding a hand out in front of her incase she was going to lung forwards in any direction.

He reached for the bowl, dumping it over Jennora and Mei as he spoke in a foreign language. The room started to shake, as it did Rakan took a step back, trying to block Emi from getting any objects thrown at her, he honestly didn't know if he did a good job at protecting her or not. Wind of vast miles came from the circle around the two creatures, their appearances non-visible to Rakan. His face hurt during the whole process and he tried desperately not to crush Emi or fall over.

Suddenly it all stopped, the room was filled with dust, debris and wall pieces from around the room. In the middle of the circle, it was almost untouched, even the ceiling was still in one piece. Rakan slowly dusted himself off and blinked trying to see into the middle of the room where the spell had worked successfully. Rakan smiled as he approached the two girls slowly, reaching an arm out to the both of them.

Jennora breathed in, eyes blinking as she tried to adjust to the room around her. She was dressed in a short black silk dress, it hugged around her waist and thighs, giving more of an professional look. She coughed, gasping for air but only getting the debris around the air. Her teal pigtails flowed down to the ground, and her pink aura glow arriving around her skin. She blinked and rubbed her eyes as she could sense Rakan getting closer, she saw his finger tips suddenly. As Jennora reached for Rakan's hand she tried to stand, her legs were wobbly and she fell into Rakan a few times.

When she finally gained her balance she realized an alarm was going off in the building above them followed by absurd panic. She stepped outside of the circle and it was like the whole room was clear again, all particles falling from within the air. She turned around looking at everyone in the room, Mei and Emi included. There were a couple people that had entered the room because of hearing the nearby occurrence, however Jennora didn't recognize them at all.

She rubbed her forehead as she took a step back. "Are we supposed to feel sick?" Jennora asked, her voice was light. She gasped, surprised by her own voice. She looked over by the wall where a cute little human stood, she had long pink hair and bright pink eyes. Jennora's heart ached as she studied the human further, recalling a converstation from a couple weeks ago when William had told Rakan the truth about Emi. Knowing that Jennora smiled through tears that she had wanted to release before now, after blinking a few times she rubbed her eyes not wanting Emi to check her staring.

❝In silence I want her to see the beauty of this world.❞

ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#0B5E1E ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #0812A3

|| Lost Unicorns || Gnossiene No. 1 ||




In a strange flash of light after the liquid was poured onto the butterfly and the snake Mei felt it, something strange was happening. She had a feeling she knew what was supposed to be happening. Her body was growing, maybe not her original form but some approximation of it was definitely coming true. The snake had morphed into something different and so had she, they were both humanoid now, they were both no longer trapped in their forms. But standing on two legs felt very... off balancing for the butterfly even as the world spun and the dizziness overflowed through her. She tried to change back, purely to see if it was possible. A year as a butterfly, she was more used to that, but she was glad that at last Xayah's wish had come true.

Jennora seemed to be falling into Rakan a few times, but Mei simply stayed seated, her silky butterfly wings never leaving her. "Um.... h-hello." Her long pink hair brushed against the small of her back as her wings fluttered, proportional and large and hopefully would be able to do something more than just existing, hopefully they would support flight. "I'm Mei!" To celebrate their freedoms from their respective forms, Mei took a nervous step forward, dressed in her old white ragged long shirt, the only thing she and Xayah had been allowed to wear back when they were experiments. "Sh-should we be friends?" Sure, snakes ate butterflies but now both were yokai too.

A small gentle smile rose on her face. She extended a hand for Rakan, having noticed how jittery and strange he was being. "Th-thank you, Rakan. Um, please let me pay you back somehow." She was able to speak! The butterfly wanted to jump for joy, she never thought she'd have been able to do something like this ever again! It was a miracle come true, all thanks to Rakan and Emi, the one who made the potion and the one who took the research notes from Mirai in the first place. Could she still become the knife? The pinkette closed her eyes, recalling the feeling of power. Then she did - or at least her arm became the pink blade's edge. Strange. Maybe she could fully transform into the knife in butterfly form then? "And thank you, Emi." She gave the child an appreciative stare. Sure, Mei was very short, but somehow Emi was smaller still.

"Um... I'm going to go let Xayah know." Would it make her friend happy? Would it bring a smile to her face? Hopefully, hopefully her being normal again would help her friend let go of the past and accept that it's okay to live in this world, that they had a place here. She transformed, becoming tiny again, a mere butterfly-type creature, giving one last flutter to Rakan before making her way back up to the medical wing where the paraplegic Xayah laid, awake as she read a book. "Oh, hello again Mei." Xayah said with a twisted sort of pained smile she always did when seeing Mei like this. "You probably hung out with the others, didn't you? I don't know what you see in them, they would never help us." Agony was etched into her eyes, agony at having to live.

Mei wanted to change that pain into happiness.

So she transformed right before Xayah's eyes. At first the blonde was alarmed, wanting to cry out for help as the butterfly did something strange, became immersed in a flash of light. Once the light faded away here she was, looking almost like her old self, just aged up by a year and with butterfly wing appendages attached to her back. "Mei?" Xayah asked in something between awe and disbelief. Mei smiled at her, going in for the desperate hug. And then she smacked her in the head. "Yes, it's me. Please stop wanting to die now, I'm back. I'm happy. Let's just be happy, okay?" Xayah returned the hug, tight and intimate in a way only two soulforged beings could be. "But now you're one of them, aren't you? You have that stink all yokai have." Xayah wrinkled her nose in new pain. "They turned you, didn't they?" Mei shook her head, she didn't know what she was. "But I can talk to you again. I'm not stuck as a butterfly anymore. Isn't that enough, at least for now?"

|| Getting to Know You|| Julie Andrews ||




Emi wasn't scared, when she entered the lab, she had a feeling she was in for a treat the way Rakan was mixing and pouring colorful brews into one another, a puff of what appeared to be smoke coming out of the phial containing the brew he had so carefully prepared. "What is that?" Emi's eyes widened, he told her to stand back and so Emi listened, standing beside the wall. Her eyes continued to grow wider as Rakan proceeded to coax the snake into taking some. Before her very eyes, a miracle seemed to happen, the likes of which Emi had never seen before. She stayed frightfully still, watching with bated breath as the long snake began to transform and mold into a humanoid shape. When the lights stopped and the smoke cleared, there was a girl with long blue hair and an elegant figure standing where the snake had once been. Predictably, Emi had no idea how to react to this new person.

"H-hello," Emi gave a shy wave while Rakan confidently strode towards the little butterfly called Mei. With a few drops of the same multicolored brew, there was a burst of light and a mist surrounding the character. Mei emerged, looking rather human, sitting on the floor. If Emi's eyes widened any further, no doubt they would pop right out of her skull. She had never seen anything like this! In all of her days around the yokai, Emi had never seen an animal change into one. "I-I," she was speechless, not afraid per say, but-okay, that was a lie. If Rakan could do this, what were the chances that he could turn Emi into a snake? Or worse? A mouse? No doubt William wouldn't hesitate to consume her soul if she outlived her usefulness. "P-please don't turn me into a mouse or a rat."

Emi turned tail, quickly running out before Rakan could change his mind. She was intercepted by another yokai in the hallway, one of the lower level trainees. "Whoa there, what's got you all shaken up?" Emi looked up at the newbie, who clearly had no idea of chaotic proceedings she was in for. "Oh, a human, what are you doing in here?" She asked, kneeling down to Emi's short stature. "I-I belong to William," Emi swallowed hard. She shook her head, she couldn't let something so simple frighten her, but perhaps being kidnapped by Mirai had effected her a bit more deeply than they had realized.

Jennora was puzzled by Emi's reaction to Rakan changing the two of them into their true forms. Mei still had the ability to change into a small butterfly, that looked like something she was happy about. Jennora watched as Emi freaked out and left in a hurry. Her heart suddenly ached for the small human, she wanted to run after her and comfort Emi. However she knew how scary the whole situation would be for her. She knew that Emi would probably be running to William, when Jennora thought of William her cheeks turned pink and she breathed out slowly, scared for that conversation but excited at the same time.

Jennora smiled at Mei as she asked if they should be friends. "I believe we should be friends." She told Mei as she struggled to stand up. She leaned against the desk in the lab as Rakan helped Mei up. Mei told everyone that she was going to tell Xayah the good news, Jennora's eyes shifted to Rakan after the two were alone in the lab.

"I didn't kill my family, Mirai controlled my body to kill my family. It was the only way she could get into the family manison." Jennora explained as she moved slowly closer to Rakan. She held his face in both of her hands as he let out everything he had tried to keep his cool about. The tears came rolling down his face, no words following as he latched onto Jennora, hugging her close."Please run, let us try to revive your good name." She whispered into his ear as she rocked him back and forth.

Usually Jennora was only mothering towards humans, however she could empathize with Rakan about the situation he was stuck in. Eventually he let her go and nodded."Okay, I'll run." He finally said, and before Jennora could response he disappeared into thin air. Jennora smiled to herself, straightening her posture. She left the lab, making her way to William's office, a familiar path she remembered taking as a snake. When she arrived at his office she knocked on the open door, standing in the hallway so he could see her but she wasn't intruding yet.

❝In silence I want her to see the beauty of this world.❞

ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#0B5E1E ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #0812A3

|| Lost Unicorns || Gnossiene No. 1 ||




Happy at having a new friend named Jennora, Mei flew off. She cast a worried glance Emi's way and to Rakan too, but right now there was a best friend she had to tend to and that girl's name was Xayah herself. They had their talk, Xayah did not seem the happiest at what had happened despite it all. Even after showing her new humanoid form Xayah looked upset. "We dreamed for freedom, and for what, Mei?" She looked angry more than anything. "We were supposed to be ourselves, to see freedom in our own bodies. But now you've transformed into one of them!" Mei frowned, hugging Xayah at the shoulders. She had always been smaller than the blonde and even now with her wings she could fit nicely in. This was their first time actually touching with human skin on skin, but why was it such a sad occasion?

Xayah had to stop moping, had to start realizing that the world was more than just a sad dreary place. There was good in it too, all you had to do was know how to find it! "I can speak now. I can change into whatever I want, Xayah, see?" She became the butterfly, then a knife, then to butterfly, to human, to human with a knife arm with no effort at all. It hurt a little for each transformation, but naturally it would because of the shifting of her body parts and everything. "Isn't this good? We can finally do things together now." Xayah glared, turning away. "You're a yokai now." She crossed her arms, legs still unable to do anything. Her back was broken, there was nothing they could do to fix it now.

"Rakan's only ever been nice to us. He even gave me this body." She had to try to find a way to fix this, to make things better. She wanted to bring light back to her best friend's eyes. "William took us in when Rakan bought us, he gave us the money to have our own place. Sure, the first one did something horrible, but even so, we were free. Isn't that enough?" Xayah curled up, shaking her head. "Please go. I don't want to think right now, Mei." She just looked so tired, so broken, Mei did not know what to do. So she left, closing the door, then her legs gave out. After a year of never walking, of course she wouldn't be able to last that long. She clasped her hand over her mouth and cried, trying to silence the sound of her weakness. How could she save Xayah? How could she fix this?

|| Getting to Know You|| Julie Andrews ||




"Did you say goodbye?" William asked, not looking up from his papers. "No," Emi admitted, realizing she had forgotten the important task she had set out to do. She swallowed hard, entering the office and sitting down in a chair across from him. "You kicked up a fuss and didn't even complete the on task you set out to do? Don't tll me you got sidetracked Emi. We've talked about this, complete one thing, then move on to the next." Emi shook her head, William was showing his soft side. "No, that's not it. It-it's hard to explain," Emi looked down at her lap. "Humans," William sighed, rubbing at his temples. "Such a pain, I should just gobble you up already." Emi tilted her head to the side curiously. "Then why don't you?" She had never asked him before, but now, Emi was curious. He made threats like this quite often but never made good on them.

"Your usefulness hasn't run out yet. For example, you've seemed to have led a snake directly to me." He placed his pen down and rose, straightening his tie. "Run along Emi, the adults have to do some talking." Emi turned, her eyes widening when she saw Jennora poised in the hall, ready to enter, but uncertain of herself. "But-" William lifted out the chair from underneath her, "Do not speak unless spoken to. I've given you an order, now go," Emi swallowed hard and nodded, running off. She looked up at Jennora quickly on her way out, "he wants to see you," she muttered, standing just out of reach. Emi continued snaking down the hall, her normal haunts were all but gone considering Rakan had left.

Sitting in the hall was a butterfly girl with pretty wings and a fuzzy scarf; Mei. "Rough day?" Emi asked softly, taking a seat beside her. She rifled through her pocket and took out a flower that was slightly crushed, but still pretty. "Here, I heard butterflies like flowers." She placed it on Mei's lap, hoping that it would help. "Um, I know Xayah isn't happy, but honestly, I've never seen her happy. I think she might be hopeless," Emi scratched her cheek, these were probably not the right things to say, but she was never a master with words. She was dull and dumb, just like William said. "But maybe, if she had a friend, she would start to think differently? No one's ever shown her real kindness, so I think, if they did, Xayah might begin to look up at the brighter side once more?"

William rose from his seat and buttoned up his suit jacket. He ran a hand through his dark hair and opened up the door, smiling coolly. "Jennora," he beckoned for her to move into the office. "Please, come in, it's been an awfully long time since I've seen you. Emi and Rakan have told me that you were a snake thanks to Mirai's fiddling with illegal brews."

Jennora smiled at Emi as she told her that William wanted to see her, "Don't worry Emi, we won't be too long." Jennora told her as she walked into William's office, he was alot nicer than she thought he would be. When he said that Rakan had told him that Mirai turned Jennora into a snake she looked to the floor, the horrible memories filling her head. She sat on the couch in William's office as she watched him close the door, little Emi disappeared behind the door.

"Yes, Mirari wanted to destroy the Blood family, removing them from the court marshal's decision making. Every yokai knows that you cannot get into the Blood manison without the Blood's family running through your veins. So she used forbidden magic to entire her soul into my body. I cannot remember what I was doing while I was in the void, but all I have are the memories of her using my body to slaughter my family." Jennora sniffled her tears away, rubbing her eyes and taking a deep breath. Clearly uneasy as she sat on William's couch.

She gave William a concerned look as she started to talk quieter so that only William could hear here. "I remember the conversation about that child you watch over. I remember everything as my time as a snake." Jennora took a breath before continuing.

"I won't tell her, I don't want to be the one to tell her. However with your permission I would like to take her under my wing. I know you probably don't agree with the way I do my contracts but human children souls haven't had the time to grow up before fate takes their toll. With myself being gone for so long I have lost some of the trust that children souls get to move on. I believe Emi could be a good reaper, she can ease and calm the children souls so I can guide them beyond."

She rubbed her hands together and leaned closer to William. "If anything, it gives her a purpose in life. If Mei really is a yokai now I could even teach her how to do what I do, but they see us as bad. If you want to stay on top Will, you need to make changes for the better good."

Jennora sat back, knowing she wasn't going to like his response, but she respected William a part of her might even have love for him. However she knew he could ever possess the feelings of love, he didn't understand it and probably didn't want to understand it because it was a 'human' emotion. However the love yokais have for taking souls and consuming souls showed that they were captiable of feeling human emotions too, if they just flip the switch in their heads.

She quickly added "I'm not trying to tell you how to run your company. You know how I feel about you, I'm just looking out for your best interest. If there is anything I can do I will do it. You kept me safe."

Mei sniffled, rubbing at her eyes. She just wanted to make Xayah happy, why wasn't she listening? Why was she still always so sad? They were free, they were outside, they could do nearly whatever they wanted! She almost wanted to just turn into a butterfly again... but she knew that she couldn't just give up. Xayah never gave up on her, and Mei would do her best. Emi had come to give her condolences upon seeing her crying. Mei rearranged her fluffy white scarf, finding comfort in it's warmth, watching as Emi interacted with her. This would be their first time ever speaking. She had wanted for so long to have a chance to talk to the child but now she couldn't think of anything to say.

The potentially yokai butterfly gave a weak smile at the flower gift, picking it up and gently placing the stem through her hair to try to keep it in place. It fell back down and she sighed, watching it fall down as if rejecting her. She still appreciated the show of support though. "I don't want her to be hopeless." She said, drooping her head down. She wanted to see her friend smile, but the only time she'd ever truly smiled was in those times back when they were trapped in the glass tubes, trying to encourage the other to have the strength to keep living. "Do you think that would work? I don't think she wants to see me right now... but maybe she wouldn't mind you?" For a moment the butterfly thought about it.

Then she shook her head, offering her hand to the child as she stood up. It was going to be hard to find clothes that could hide her wings, but she wasn't able to retract them. Sure they were pretty but now everyone would know she was inhuman. "Hmm, I think we should give her some space. Then maybe we can try to cheer her up!" Mei decided not to dwell on it for now. They had all their lives to teach Xayah happiness, there was no need to rush for now. "Do you want to go for a walk? I'll hide in your pocket as a butterfly as we explore." Might as well just give Xayah the space she needed.

So the butterfly transformed back into her pixie-like form and flitted snugly into Emi's pocket. Being big and human was almost dizzying with how different the perspective was than the usual. Not used to these human-sized limbs, with the dulled smell and only one directional vision. The human body felt clumsy and clunky. After a whole year, she felt more like herself as the tiny butterfly than anything. Ah, but being able to speak was something she wouldn't trade for the world. Jennora was back to her true form too! That's right, Mei had a new friend! Sure, it was sad about Xayah but Mei wouldn't let it get her down this time.

Re: Threads of Salvation

@The_Queen, oh no my dear you take care of your health! That's important, I'm not going anywhere Lol and neither are the others I'm sure. So you reply when you're good and ready. O(≧∇≦)O


Re: Threads of Salvation

@Queen: Oh no bby, take your time! It's just the three of us right now (and only four when catgirl returns from vacation). I've actually been meaning to post again too, but I've been dealing with weird issues lately that have also been hindering my progress on doing anything. You have nothing to worry about; take your time. Your health is more important than a silly RP anyway.


Re: Threads of Salvation

I apologize I haven't responded yet Hime and Star, I've been having trouble breathing and it's gotten to the point where I don't have energy because there's no air in my lungs.


Re: Threads of Salvation

I've posted! @Everyone under the female yokai, Nozomi, please at least read my Sakura post. I changed a little something up. She is heading towards the building where Xavier resides, in case there's any confusion, and plans on interrupting it.


Re: Threads of Salvation

So, we're going to start. I've made us a note pad so that we can all collaborate and share ideas. Star Child is going to be making another female to even things out and I'm going to fix the front page. We'll be starting either tonight or tomorrow. Please check on the pad at least once a day so you're not left out of the loop! Click here.


Re: Threads of Salvation

And... I'm done! Sorry for the long delay, but I'm trying to finish up most things before I have to leave.


Re: Threads of Salvation

(`⌒´メ) Well, I guess at least this is why we had as many roles as we did. There's nothing wrong with a smaller group'd RP though. I really love my character and I'm excited about everyone else's and I reeeeeally can't wait to start!


Re: Threads of Salvation

I'm so glad you ended up liking them ^_^

We're just waiting on Catgirl now since most of the other players failed to even make it past the initial submission.


Re: Threads of Salvation

No you made it perfect, those photos we're exactly what I had in mind but couldn't figure out where to get them. Thanks so much, you awesome person you!!! o (^‿^✿)o


Re: Threads of Salvation

I hope you don't mind, I went in to fix some weird coding in your bio and then sort of got carried away and added photos.... If you don't like them or want to switch anything back, go right ahead, but otherwise your bio is perfect.


Re: Threads of Salvation

I think I finished for the most part. Let me know if I need to edit some more. ∩˙▿˙∩


Re: Threads of Salvation

Developing a Muse is so difficult! Especially one from scratch arrgh! (×_×;


Re: Threads of Salvation

I really need everyone to start finishing up their bios, you've got two days left!


Re: Threads of Salvation

I realized that it means screaming and reading texts of it can be weird. Apologies. I reverted the text . (◕‿◕✿)


Re: Threads of Salvation

It just makes my head feel like I'm mentally screaming >.<


Re: Threads of Salvation

I thought all caps looked cool. I can revert to normal text tho. Its a wip. ∩˙▿˙∩


Re: Threads of Salvation

@Himekura, my brain hurts from all the screaming letters in your bio. Why is everything in caps?

@Star Child, good job! You get a cookie!


Re: Threads of Salvation

I've finished Charlot completely and entirely! I hope everyone enjoys him! I sure do. I'm excited to see everyone else's characters and to get this roleplay on a roll. Your time to finish your characters, unless you've otherwise stated in the OOC or in a PM to Queen or I an upcoming endeavor, is coming up, so please work hard! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ


Re: Threads of Salvation

I think, Not To Be is the worst possible outcome besides complete death. Even though he'd already be giving up his family which he'd already lost it's his sister he'll miss perhaps the most. Maybe he could learn to live his existence in another realm. That would interesting on it's own.


Re: Threads of Salvation

HMMM. I love them all, but the Hellish Servitude probably wouldn't be as available or enjoyable to play in this roleplay. The Sakura Effect and Not to Be are good ;o; if only because they're upsetting.
