Introduction

It all started in the middle of the summer. It snowed in the desert and the heat rose over average temperatures. The Northern Lights glimmered in midday southwestern skies while it rained in the North Pole. All over the world, strange phenomena was happening and no one knew why.
Then, it hit you, literally. As you were marveling the strange weather, something slammed into your head. A charm landed in your hand. Little did you know, others around the world possess similar charms and they, like you, have been blessed with extraordinary elemental powers. The question is: do you use your abilities for good or for evil?
The people with these charms are deemed Arks and have been discreetly gathered into a city known as Arcadia for testing. The governments of the world are determined to define these teenagers as a threat or a blessing. However, conflicts are rising within Arcadia between the two opposing sides of Arks as wells as the humans living in Arcadia.
You, along with your teammates are determined to win the war for your side, no matter the costs while trying to seem like a normal human to people that don't know your identity. However, you are finding that the lines drawn between good and evil are not as defined as you first thought. The lines are blending together as you all become awakened to your destinies and the true enemy.

The city of Arcadia glistened with sunlight. It would be easiest to compare it to New York or Los Angeles, but it was a fairly new city, so it was unlike others with the same population. It was not unusual for entire families to move to Arcadia at a time. In it's one year of function, Arcadia had already become a major city in the United States. Anyone could see why. It boasted a coast lined with large hotels and amusement parks everywhere. If someone combined every popular city in the United States, it wouldn't even begin to compare to Arcadia.
Seven o'clock. Not an unlikely time for people to be up and about. One girl followed this rule of the weekday. She was getting ready for school, checking her texts, doing everything a normal girl would do. However, Avalon Delta was far from being a "normal girl". If someone had seen her bend over her bed to grab her notebook, they would've seen a small key dangling from around Avalon's neck. Most people didn't know what the key was actually for, but she knew very well what it was for. When she straightened up, she tucked it back under her shirt, glancing around anxiously.
She placed her notebook in her blue messenger bag the moment her phone rang. She picked it up, answering the call. "Hey, mom. No, everything's going great. Didn't Tori start school today?" she paused before laughing softly. "That's great. Look, I gotta go. I'm showing around the foreign exchange students today. I'll call you back later. M'kay? Love you, bye!"
When she hung up, she placed the phone in her pocket, letting out a small sigh. She slung her bag over her shoulder, walking out of her dorm room. As she walked to Arcadia Academy's main building, she chuckled a bit. Exchange students weren't unusual in the Academy.
It took a few minutes for her to get to the office and when she did, she looked at the ten new students in front of her. She sighed, her shoulders slumping. This was going to be a long day.

Roman Alexey Dmetriev

What a joke. Not even a full night of sleep before class.

Roman scowled glumly, deep purple blooming under his bright eyes. The sun poured thinly through the only window in the room, blinding him partially as he lay in denial on a mattress on the carpeted floor. Roman denied it quietly, arms folded under his head. The light was orange and cream, and it landed so perfectly on his face that he had no choice but to groan and force himself up. The tall young man stretched briefly before crouching to ruffle through his dufflebag and suitcase, attempting to groggily stumble into suitable clothing. He plucked his jacket from the floor and pulled it over his shoulders, the navy blue material stretching taught as he raised both arms above his head and yawned in a final attempt to shake away the three-hour nap.

His flight had come in so late that Roman had nearly no time to sleep, let alone eat - and his belly resented him for it. It rumbled as he ducked out the door, a plain bag over one shoulder. Roman pulled the grey hood of his jacket over his cleanly shaven dark hair, thundering down the stairs to the shimmering city below. Luckily for his sleeping habits, the housing was near enough to the school where he might slip into orientation unnoticed. Absently he ran his fingers over his charm - a brilliantly silver and rose gold phoenix, seated in a wreath, that hung around his throat. He was looking down, flitting through his cellphone, which still had not been switched over to an American service carrier. He sighed, and tucked the useless brick into his front pocket.

The campus was decidely large enough to rival most universities, he decided, looking up at the daunting buildings. He chewed on the inside of his lip blankly, looking around for any signs of an office building. Roman's limited english barricaded him from quickly finding the administrative building. Coupled with the late start, he was the last of the students to slip into the office, and he did so as quietly as he could, silencing his phone in his pocket without looking down. He was overwhelmingly the tallest, and hunched a little to avoid being too conspicuous.

Leo hummed happily to himself as he balanced on the side of the pavement, glancing left and right before running across the road to the other side. It was his first day of school and he only just gotten up 10 minutes ago when his ever persistent housekeeper realized he had not gotten up when she called him. The women has become like a surrogate mother to him and he know she defiantly considered him her son.

The way to school wasn't that far so he had decided to walk, the sun was up and the world was bathed in a warm light that just made him feel incredibly light and happy. He was twirling randomly now as he skipped his way down the pavement, dodging past people here and there as he continued on his merry way without a care in the world.

Anyone looking at him might of worried he was to young to be heading for highschool considering his short stature and childlike expression of excitement as he neared the building. His white hair had a significant bed head look and his previous school uniform put together messily however his appearance was the last thing on the young boys mind.

He entered into the office, glancing around the room he took in all the people present before moving to stand next to a young girl with long pink hair, smiling happily. "Hi, Hi! My names Leo! Nice to meet you!", he said while swinging on his feet as he looked towards the other girl who appeared around his age.

Eiko walked to school silently, a small smile on her face and her pink pigtails swinging behind her. She was to start a new school, and though this was not Japan and did not require uniforms, she still wore her school uniform from her old school, consisting of a white short sleeve shirt with a large red bow, and a purple skirt, along with a pair of brown loafers and knee soaks. And of course, her necklace containing her axe charm hanging from her neck, tucked into her shirt for...security reasons.

She may had just moved here from Tokyo, but her english was pretty good. It was a nice day today, the sun bouncing off her hair and shoulders, her red eyes shimmering dramatically in the light. A cool breeze blew her hair back keeping it out of her petite pale face. Her house wasn't far from school, so she walked.

She walked into the office of her new school, ignoring the stares of people who were curious as to why she chose such a strange outfit, but she didn't care about them. They all just worthless lives to her, capable of being ended at any time.

A short boy with white hair and, just like her, a school uniform walked up beside her, smiling. He looked about her age. The boy introduced himself as 'Leo'. He was cute, Eiko thought, and certainly one of the few (if only) people ever to actually talk to her. And he had an Italian accent, which Eiko couldn't help but blush at.

"Hello, I'm Eiko. Nice to meet you too. Are you new too?" She spoke in her Asian accent.

Derren's black hair fell into his dark eyes has he walk to school in the shadows the trees gave off. His hands her stuffed in the pockets of his old faded jeans.

People walked passes him, either not noticing of caring of the man walking alone in the shadows. He got a few stares from people, probably thinking he was part of a gang. He was used to it. It happened a lot.

His home was a way back from the school, but he still choose to walk due to the amount of people on the subway. He's severely claustrophobic, and would have a breakdown when in enclosure spaces. He liked walking, so that what he'd do.

The school was big to him, as he'd never actually gone to school. People were everywhere, yet he went unnoticed. He's always been alone in the world. Why stop now?

He sighed, reaching into his pocket and taking out a pocket watch. It had no clock, though inside held a small moon charm with red blood dripping off the side. The charm was his only company. And that's the way it would always be.

Scarlet peered out of the window at the passing scenery flowing past the train car she was seated in. The sun was still below the horizon and she couldn't just fall asleep again after waking up and having to go through all the commotion of getting her things packed. She had packed an entire suitcase and would have brought more if not for her mother whose scolding words which were, 'Scarlet! You can't take everything! When I came to America, I had to bring only my finest dresses and a few work clothes. I had to leave some of my more docile gowns and sheets behind!" Scarlet winced remembering the irritated Irish accent micromanaging everything she did. Her mother was a tough one but she cared and that's what made her perfect. Scarlet shifted in the seat trying to find a comfortable position. It would be a long ride ahead tip she reached Arcadia, her new hometown.

The red-head's eyes fluttered open as an attendant shook her shoulder gently. She gazed at his embarrassed face and shyly hunched shoulders in amusement as she gathered herself and her wits. "We've reached Arcadia. Isn't this your stop?" He inquired, daring to meet her baby blue eyes. She smirked and stood, scooting around him to retrieve her luggage from the compartments above. "It is. Thanks." She replied cooly, staying focused and ignoring the feeble young man. He was cute but wasn't at all her type. She adored men who were muscular and hunky. A man who would stand above all the others. Scarlet couldn't help but grin as she pushed past the man and waved goodbye with her free hand. She stepped off the train and looked up to the sky, noticing the sun rising now. She felt a bit better now that she could see the sun and certainly felt less groggy. Scarlet stood with her luggage in hand and basked in the narrow rays of light momentarily before she cast her gaze over to the exit. As she made her way to it, her mind briefly reminded her how strange it was to take power from the sun. Scarlet knew she wasn't a monster, or any less human, but that didn't change the fact that she felt stronger when it was daytime and weak during the night. She could run faster and lift heavier things during the day but became as feeble as a little girl during the night. Due to this, she always tried to keep some type of light device handy and in this case she had brought her night lamp which would help simply to keep it from getting too dark in her room when she needed rest. Scarlet hailed a taxi and when one finally stopped in front of her, she got in and directed him to the academy. She knew where it was from being drilled so many times by her parents. She would have been completely unprepared if not for them. That thought elicited a small smile and she leaned back in the cab chair. Scarlet felt absolutely thrilled and the excitement pulsed through her veins like pure adrenaline. She fisted her hands in her lap to keep them from shaking. As she looked out the window at the bustling city, she wondered who she would meet at this new school and what fate had in store.

Scarlet arrived in one piece and immediately headed to her assigned dorm room. She was of the impression that she would have the room to herself and she was thankful because other girls tended to hate her. Scarlet entered the room but didn't spare the drab surroundings a glance because she was already nearing the time for orientation. She set her luggage on the bed and checked her appearance in the mirror on the far side of the room. Her pleated floral print and white skirt nicely complimented her short sleeved white blouse with ruffles in the front. It was stylish, modest in covering a decent amount of skin without seeming uptight, and casual. It was a perfect outfit for a first impression or so she thought. The girl delicately preened herself before leaving to go to the orientation room. She was so excited and nervous that she practically skipped the entire way there.

Scarlet peeked in the room and noticed that many people had already arrived. She cursed the slow taxi driver but her annoyance at the driver was overwhelmed by the sense of euphoria. She smiled pleasantly and entered further into the room, not wanting to seem awkward just standing at the door. She allowed her gaze to float over each occupant nonchalantly but she was feeling them out and sensing them and what they felt. She had noticed this particular preternatural skill when she had first received her charm but after some practice she was able to somewhat feel what others were experiencing. However, if she focused too hard or they were going through some trauma or overly emotional situation, she sometimes overloaded and it backlashed on her. She took her place on the far side of the room and suavely regarded the man nearest her. She raised her brows in surprise. Oh wow. Guess lady luck is on my side. Dang. She thought in shocked amusement. The man was not only handsome, but looked rugged in a way that made her wanna tease him a bit. She wondered what he looked like when he was all riled up and a mischievous smile formed on her lips as she checked him out blatantly. She noticed that two others had sparked up a conversation and figured it was as good a time as any to introduce herself. "Hey. Name's Scarlet but you can call me Ann. Are you new in town too?" Her voice was feminine and seductive and her southern accent wouldn't go unnoticed by a foreigner. She extended a polite hand to him.

Marcus Lorde never actually imagined that he would ever attend school in a city, much less the newest flourishing city. So far, Arcadia seemed much more hospitable than most places he had traveled to, but it was still too early to judge a book by its cover. Despite being born in England, he had been raised as a farm boy. However, no one could tell that by simply looking at him. He dressed like most teenagers with the small exception of the geode necklace swinging back and forth with his movements. It glinted in the sunlight as he walked to the academy's main building.

With a small hum, Marcus climbed the stairs into the office, only to discover that he was probably the only person that hadn't arrived yet. He walked off the the side just as the principal, at least he assumed it was the principal, walked in. She seemed like a very professional woman, with her hair in a bun and a manilla folder tucked under her arm.

She smiled warmly at the new arrivals. "Welcome to Arcadia Academy. I'm Principal Shire. If you have any questions, you can ask me or your guide, who should be here momentarily. Girls, she is in the dorms, so don't feel awkward if you have any questions. Boys, you have a dorm head, who was unfortunately out last night and this morning, but should be back today. Anyways," she opened the folder and started sorting through it. "Here are your schedules. Let's start from the top: Derren Akumu, Thanos Callis, Roman Dmitriev, Moa Eden, Scarlet Harris, Marcus Lorde-"

Marcus watched the others step forward until he heard his name. He walked up and grabbed his schedule, glancing over the piece of paper. The classes seemed relatively normal. They were ones he picked, after all. The principal was about to say something else when a girl entered the room. Marcus assumed she was either a late newcomer or their guide. She looked over the crowd and her confidence seemed to slump. Before he knew it, her smile was back on her face, "Good morning, everyone. My name is Avalon Delta and I'll be your guide today."

She repeated herself in several different languages, not even stumbling once over the foreign words. Impressive. Marcus thought.

Roman pulled the hood away from his face, folding his arms over his chest quietly as he observed the quietly conversing group. The color palette of the group was striking - all colors of hair, skin, and eyes blended together in the gathering. A woman with pink hair, a boy with white, and a redheaded girl who snuck up next to him and began introducing herself in an accent that made him think of poorly-made American caricature. It took him a few seconds to piece together a response to her introduction. He took her hand briefly, not letting the contact last any long than it needed to, and muttered out a broken-english response.

"Roman, nice to meet you." Half of the words were slurred with his heavy-handed manner of speech. He wasn't entirely focused on her as a woman shuffled into the room and began speaking rapidly. He dropped his hand and listened intently, piecing together what he could of her speech. He shuffled quietly, looking each person over as they fetched their Itineraries from the Principal. Each was as colorful as the last. As he heard his name spoken in english, Roman shouldered his way through to the front quietly and gently, fetching the papers from the woman he towered over and hurriedly making his way back behind the group. He leafed through it, casually leaning against the doorframe, struggling with each line briefly.

The sky was still fading to indigo as Thanos pressed his forehead to the cold window of the bus. His breath fogged the glass slightly as he watched the foreign country whir by in a Monet painting of colors. The bus ride has not been unpleasant, but the greek found himself in a foul mood - partially lack of sleep, partially lack of food, partially stress. He fidgeted with his gloved hands quietly as he watched the countryside vanish into buildings. Was this a good idea? he thought to himself, nervously adjusting the scarf that was tucked around his neck to more adequately cover his skin. His clothing was simple for the long bus ride - dark jeans, tennis shoes, and a deep slate-colored henley tucked under his black jacket. The grey hood of the jacket was pulled up around the back of his head, a deep navy scarf wrapped about his shoulders and throat. Plain black vinyl gloves kept his hands covered, and a black knit beanie kept his dark, unruly hair out of his way. He was exhausted looking, unshaven, and irate from being hungry. As the sun rose, Thanos promised himself to buy breakfast - something he rarely did. After a long night on the bus, however, he decided he could make an exception.

The sun was already high by the time the bus rolled to a stop and Thanos discarded his ticket, tugging his blue suitcase along behind him. Everything he owned was stuffed into it, and into the threadbare messenger bag slung across his chest. He found his way into a Starbucks and rewarded himself for the long ride with hot coffee and a warm sandwich. He ate as he walked, hurrying to follow the quietly-speaking navigation on his phone to the dorm housing for the Academy.

The buildings were large, but no larger than he had seen at home in Greece. A quick look at his phone, and Thanos knew he was still early, and smiled calmly behind his coffee. He found the room number he had been assigned, after ememorizing it off of a crumpled napkin that was shoved into his pocket. The door was unlocked, as it had been unclaimed, and he chucked his suitcase inside. He'd return for it later. Assigned keys sat on a hook on the wall, and after a quick test, he took one, now having the means to lock his room.

It was a short walk to the campus, but the anxiety of avoiding people plagued the greek boy. He ducked and weaved through groups, keeping his eyes down and head low, hands in his pockets. He wasn't early, but he wasn't late, when he slid into the office and stepped away from the group of people. He clung to a wall, several feet away. He thankfully didn't need to wait long - a woman arrived, and began rattling off a welcome and introduction.

"Hello, I'm Eiko. Nice to meet you too. Are you new too?", Leo grinned over at the girl, spinning round to grab her hands in delight as he heard her Asian accent. "Eiko! Thats such a pretty name! I am new, and so are you, right? I love you accent, it's so cute! Let's be friend, kay.", Leo was bouncing about in his usual high speed and childlike fashion as he spoke to Eiko, not really noticing that the office had begun to fill up and a women was reading off names until he heard his.

"Here!", He said smiling, moving towards the women to get his schedule and grabbing Eiko's in the process before moving back to the girl and handing it over, "Here, here! I hope we get in some classes together!", he grinned happily. The soft noise of an object hitting the group pulled his attention as he noticed his erratic movements had caused his pencil to come loose and fall. Bending down, he grabbed it up and began to spin it between his fingers as he turned his attention to the girl who said she was their guide.

He turned his gaze to glance around the room, pencil still being spun between fingers without focus as he did so. Most appeared to be older then himself and he felt a small twinge of worry before it was brushed away by all the colors filling the room. It was only know that he had his pencil in hand that he was starting to see the artistic potential filling the room and his hand was already itching to start sketching, painting or even sculpting, anything to let his creativity flow.

He physically had to force himself to stop his hands movement when he felt them try to reach for the worm and almost filled, leather sketch book that he always carried with him. He couldn't do that here, he had to wait till he was alone before he could start drawing just in case he had any more... Accidents? He wasn't sure what to call them, all the strange things that had started happening to him ever since he had found that old pencil he now held twirling.

His eyes paused briefly over someone who seemed to be hiding but he couldn't really make them out from the crowd of people surrounding them so he decided to turn his attention back to Eiko and stop worrying so much despite the now gnawing curiosity in his stomach.

"So, what have you got first? Maybe we will be lucking and share our first class.", he smiled towards Eiko, drawing his attention back towards her from the crowd surrounding them.

Eiko smiled at Leo warmly, despite the redded cheek when he told her her accent was cute. She decided to humour him with some Japanese words. "Oh, Arigatō Leo. I like your accent too. I've always been a fan of Italian history, not to mention their architecture is amazing!" She wasn't lying, she really did feel that way about Italy. It seemed like an interesting place to go, yet she never though she'd ever get the chance.

When they called everyone up to get their schedules, she was somewhat shocked when he ran up in front of her and brought hers back, but she thanked him anyway. She then noticed a worried look on his face as he started to twirl a pencil around his fingers. She felt something odd emitting from her mind that caused her to unconsciously grab the charm hanging from her neck, and her red eyes to sparkle a little in a way that ment something was about to happen.

Something in her mind told her to stay close to Leo as he could be a good friend to her. Eiko's learned to trust her mind and ignore anything else. Or else everyone in here would be in grave danger.

Mmm, let's see. My first class is...world history. Yours?

Avalon brushed a stray strand of hair behind her ear, her eyes scanning over the crowd. It seemed like she had gone unnoticed for the most art, or maybe they assumed that she was another new student. With a silent sigh, Avalon cleared her throat, "Good morning, everyone. My name is Avalon Delta and I'll be your guide today," she repeated the statement in Russian, Greek, Italian, and Japanese, just to make sure everyone could understand her. "First off, I would like to welcome you to Arcadia Academy. I hope you enjoy your stay here as much as I have."

Suddenly, a the charm under her shirt started burning, She winced slightly before pulling it out. Not now... Luckily for her, the charm cooled down. She dropped against her chest, her "guide" smile returning. "We should get moving now," she said. "The classes aren't going to wait on us. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in whatever language you are comfortable with."

Once again, she repeated it in the other languages. She looked at Principal Shire, "I think I can handle it from her."

Shire smiled, "Of course. Let me know if you need anything."

Avalon nodded and turned back to the students. "Let's move, people!" she walked over to the door and held it open for all of them, "We don't have all day!"

Third Person POV.

Decio, Kamali, and Keziay.

The bus was warm, almost unbearable so, especially for Decio. He could sit in an icy tundra in a blizzard, and not be cold, but heaven forbid the thermometer rise over 70. And it must have been at least 80 on that bus, a temperature that made Decio's stomach twist in pain. The low murmur of conversation on the bus barely reached them, all the way in the back. And since the seats were yellow, it made them pretty hard to see anyway.

On either side of him, his two little twin sisters were fast asleep, leaning on his arms. He was half asleep when they left, but the temperature had risen so suddenly and dramatically he could not get back to sleep. He glanced around warily. Most of the inhabitants of the bus were asleep or looking out the windows.They would not notice him. He reached up and pulled the small intricate key charm out of his shirt where it hung on a long chain, and curled his fingers around it. Carefully, oh so carefully, he reached inside himself and let out the tiniest bit of power possible, less than even a spark, spreading it around he and his siblings.

Several people on the bus yelped at the sudden cold as the temperature plunged to the low sixties, and Decio sighed in relief. The twins didn't stir, completely used to sudden temperature changes by now.

"Oy, driver! It's freezing in here, turn off the AC!" Someone yelled, and the twins woke, Keziay bolting upright with her usual high level of energy, without taking time to wake up, and Kamali slowly blinking and looking around calmly.

"It is off!" The bus driver said, confused, fiddling with the many buttons on the dash.

Both the twins swiveled their heads to stare at him, and he looked away awkwardly, staring intently at the window. The twins giggled.

The bus suddenly screeched to a hat, nearly throwing themselves from their seats. "S-sorry about that! Um... we're here..." The bus driver stuttered in embarrassment.


DECIO P.O.V.

Keziay snatched her duffel bag and streaked off the bus excitedly. We were used to moving. It was mundane for us. So, they didn't have a huge bulky suitcase with us like many others on beard - a single small duffel each was all they needed, and we had actually packed in more than we usually took when we moved. We were wearing pretty much the same thing, except the male version for me. A loose white halter top with a blue design, black causal dress pants, grey sneakers, and of course a long black chain with a charm on it tucked into each of our shirts. Each of us had our hair up in a pony tail, what would reach anyway since all of us kept our hair short, so some messy bangs hung down at the sides of our faces. This place was completely foreign - nothing like home in Alaska. With gangs, violence, and crime. It wasn't like those things were unfamiliar, but the protocol on them was much different here - we didn't want to get close to these sick, twisted people, so we were going with the triplets act. Wearing the same thing, talking the same way and finishing each other's sentences (which we sometimes did anyway, because of how quiet Keziay was and how shy Kamali was), always staying close together (which we usually did in unfamiliar places), and generally trying not to talk to other people besides each other. This 'triplets act' tended to scare people away, and that was exactly what we wanted.

Making sure Kamali was with me, who was nervously sticking close to me, half hiding behind me, I stepped off the bus. Keziay suddenly flashed past, running from one end of the bus unloading sidewalk to the other, her eyes scanning the crowds, green grass, new white sidewalk, and all I could think was that it looked like something that would come out of a detailed, colorful cookie cutter with how straight all the edges were. I hated it.


KAMALI P.O.V.

The place was... pristine. That was the only word I could think to describe it. How something could be pristine where so many people are constantly walking and where the smell of smog was rich in the air, I didn't know, but it was all the same. I didn't want to be here in the first place anyway, and now I wanted to be even less, no matter how fancy it was. I'd take a fun-down mansion with a giant unkept, wild Alaskan backyard any day over this. Our adoptive mother's house, where we stayed near after she died. Once the eldest of the two other sons turned 18, he would inherit it, and we would all get to move back home. Home... until I was six, I didn't even really know what that word meant.

Now, I just wanted to go back, and we had only left a day ago. And for that full day, we were stuck on that horrible contraption. I stretched my arms over my head in unison with Decio, earning us a few odd looks. Wow, our strategy was working pretty well. People here were a lot more into appearances than I thought, and I had thought they were wretchedly obsessive over them in the first place. Keziay fell into step with us as we started walking, Decio glancing at a campus map in his hands as he led the way. I glanced down and Keziay and I both synchronized our steps and head turns with him. A few passerby's stopped and stared at us, another glancing nervously and then walking away quickly. Keziay giggled and smirked at their discomfort, and I matched it. Maybe this place might be a little fun after all... just wait until we got bored here, then they'd be really scared.


KEZIAY P.O.V.

We carefully entered the room, Decio throwing the doors so wide they kind of slammed into the walls so that we all three could fit through together, making a coincidentally loud grand entrance. We stopped for a moment and looked left, then right, then started walking to stand in formation a bit away form the crowd, all three of us making the same fidgeting motions with our right hand.

For once, our bright yellow hair wasn't out of place - one girl had flaming red hair that was obviously dyed, a drama queen, probably - I even saw a girl with pink hair, but she looked slightly deranged, in a different way than my siblings and I, a bad way. I smirked faintly - I couldn't wait to get on her nerves and make her attempt to tear her hair out because she wouldn't be able to kill me. There was also a white haired boy that stuck close to her, like a puppy. He looked nice, excitable and childlike, the kind of person we would like, the one who is looked down on by society for his naïveté but who is funner to be around than anybody who would look down on him. Another was some kid slouching in a corner as if trying to hide. He aura screamed darkness to me, not evil, but darkness, because nothing was entirely good or entirely evil.

Well, one thing was for sure, no matter how much we hated this place, with people like these around at least it would take a while for us to get bored.

I was wondering the same thing...

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

Has this been abandoned? If so, I'm going to have to quit...

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

So yeah, I'm back. I updated my second character sheet to include the twin sisters, but you haven't approved them yet, so I can't post with them. :P

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

I'm back b***hes!!! The most epic writer ever has reeeeetuuuuuuuuurrrrrrnnnnnneeeeed!!!!!!!!! :D:D:D:D

Working on new character sheet NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D(x100, cuz typing out that many smilies would be annoying, i'm just SO HAPPY right now!!!!!!!!!)

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

Okay, the first post is up and everyone (with the exception of Avalon and Jayson) are new students at Arcadia Academy.

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

Okie dokes! I can't wait to see your character. ^_^

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

My character will be a male. And I'd also like to reserve Autumn, if that all right, which will assure you get another boy. I'll make them twins or something. So, thats three boys, for CERTAIN, plus Mystery and Deer if they make one.

I've been working on Winter's character sheet since yesterday, but I'm not completely sure i'll be able to post it. As the work goes on, our internet is getting interrupted, breaking the signal, more and more often. But, at the pace I'm working, I'm sure i'll be able to finish before it all flatlines. XD

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

I'm more than happy to add another male, and VileDeer says she is as well. I'll try and get something up tonight!

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

Okie doke, but I hope you all have some more males, because we only have one dude right now.

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

In that case, I'd like to reserve death. And my buddy viledeer wants to reserve water, but the website doesn't work on mobile for her. So whatever happens happens.

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

@Eiko, yepparoos! ^_^

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

Are we aloud to have two characters. If so, could I also reserve Nightmares?

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

@MysterySnail, I'd say you can have three! ^_^

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

I'm curious what your policy is on multiple characters? c:

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

@IvyCopperSky, we might start without you, but when you get back, PM me and we can try to set up some grand dramatic entrance for you. ^_^

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

@IvyCoppersky I was wondering is anyone would notice the axe charm. :) XD.

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

HAHAHA Yuki as the Element Chaos, with an axe charm. Oh man, Eiko, your killing me!!! XD

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

Yay! But I found out our internet here will be cut off from July 5th to July 18th. If you'll still let me RP with you, and just begin when I get back, you'd be awesome! But, I understand if you don't want to do that. I really want to RP with you as Winter, though! :P

AND I forgot to put in the extra on my post, cuz my mind was spinning with ideas at the time. XD
Tae Kwon Do!!!

Re: With Darkness Comes Light

@Squeekey, yes! You can reserve Destruction!
