The Acts

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Squeekey on Fri Jul 10, 2015 3:51 pm

"Role up, role up! Come one, come all you merry folk! Take a gander inside and discover..."

(Write a short paragraph about your character below. Please write their stagename/name and title, then what their act/superpower will be. Any double or group acts should be negotiated through PMs.)


Example:

Image
"My act? Well, back in the late 1870s I danced my way across kansas as a showgirl for various saloons. Admittedly they didn't seem to want me there, but I came anyway! Eventually I move on to pros- Oooh! You mean my act at Le Cirque? Well, the whole show is my act~ I'm the Ringleader, I don't really perform -apart from shooting dear William over and over again. I sometimes get involved in the acts I find more interesting."
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love, and be loved in return.."

“Roll up, roll up! Come one, come all you merry folk! Take a gander inside and discover...”
The Indestructible L E I L A ! Born with super-human strength and a body like iron! Watch as she withstands steel blades! Canon balls! Flames! All without a single scratch! See her swing on her trapeze without a net and preform death-defying stunts hundreds of feet in the air!

"Role up, role up! Come one, come all you merry folk! Take a gander inside and discover..."
Katheline "Sol" Tanith!
Daughter of Light!



Watch as she moves through the stage then up amongst the silks and ropes she's supplied with. Dancing and twisting through with unimaginable grace as light seems to follow her and do her bidding. A shimmering cloak appearing as wings fultters behind her, only enhances the fantasy of her flying. This dazzling performance is hard to take your eyes from as her form moves throughout the air without safety wire above or net below, but when she's joined in the dance by none other than her twin brother, Lunar, Son of Shadows, it draws the breathe from the lungs of the audience. This is one memory you will take from the Cirque that will not be easily forgotten.

THE TWISTED CHILD!
LUNA LITTLE MOON

Now please lady's and gents for those of you with weak stomachs, kindly avert your eyes, if you are pregnant or prone to becoming so please exit to your left and if their are any doctors in the house tonight.... You might want to go with the lady's... Now I give you the most jumbled up little mess if limbs you've ever seen, we all know our heads are supposed to be up top...
WELL NOT THIS LITTLE GIRL!


(What her act mostly contains.

"Role up, role up! Come one, come all you merry folk! Take a gander inside and discover..."

THE ANIMAL MAN!
TRENTON!

Alright alright, if you haven't gotten sick yet this next act is sure to make you.
All jokes aside lady's and gents, this young man is very dangerous. He is a vicious killer and for that very reason we ask that everyone remain calm an stay in your seats for the entirety of the act.
Now..
Without further ado...
The Animal..


(What his act mostly contains, sometimes he transforms into a bear, or a lion, really any animal he wants but his favorite is a wolf.

I'm still holding off on William's solo act until everyone's picked something they like. Whoever mentioned they wanted their character to do stuff with fire, what did you have in mind?
Do you feel like you're a bad writer? PM me, and let's talk about it. :)

"You see folks, this man is very different from that of most. Let his eyes capture your souls and his body amaze you with what's inside. For this is an act that no children should ever witness. For he traumatizes the mind and poisons the soul. He let's your biggest fears become reality and in that reality you'd wish you never seen. Let him amaze you with what's deep inside him and when I say deep, I mean what lingers under that dead skin of his. Oh yes, if you folks see a snake roaming around the staged seats, don't be alarmed it happens all the time..."

"Do we need to know each other's face to really care and love one another?
I barely even know your face,
But I already really love you.
Why?
Maybe that's because that's the real meaning of,
Ever Lasting Friendship."

Koris's picture really freaks me out.

Like, I know that's what you're going for, but seriously.

Is it weird that when I read through Korvis's profile, I wanted to hug him? I won't hug the big fluffy bunny mascot at a baby store but I'll hug the serpentine goth dude in the corner of the circus.
