Introduction

That evening hike in the forest just turned wrong. The first issue? It's winter. The second? Apparently a serial kidnapper decided to pick your backyard forest as his next haunt, and now you've been stripped to your jimmies and left to freeze. Where? Only the wind knows, and right now it's trying to freeze your [CENSORED]s off. Find fire, fast, or shall the Pines claim another victim. There are others like you, he was a SERIAL kidnapper after all.

The Pines

If this were a mall you'd see a big sign saying YOU ARE HERE. Because you are.

The Clearing
Image

This is where you've awaken. It's cold, open, and frankly what little heat you are still producing is evaporating into the cloudless night sky above you. You'd better find trees. And fast.

Toggle Rules

1. No deaths. That's a plus. If you freeze to death before finding anything or anyone you will be disabled for 24 hours (my time) and then reappear back at the clearing.
2. No PVP (Yet. *evil chuckling*)
3. Be nice! Can't stress this enough!
4. NO MARY SUES GARY SUES WHATEVER THE CRAP THEY'RE CALLED. NO.
5. Give me five seconds to calm down about Rule 4
6. Ok, I'm good now. Let's continue.
7. No one-liners please.
8. Any other common RP rules I forgot to list apply. PM me any you normally see that AREN'T on here and I'll add them in.
9. Ok so I forgot one last thing and that is about controlling other characters. You ARE allowed to use other characters in your posts but ONLY for context and an extension to the story. However, do not abuse this power in fights or ANYTHING else other than STORYWRITING or the consequences will be bad. Yes, throwing you into the Sarlacc bad.
10. Oh, and another thing. Feel free to build whatever you please inside the roleplay, but be sure to check the Places tab before posting, because if you create some sort of house/shelter/lean-to/etc. it WILL become a place for you to roleplay in.

I think this is all the rules for now, go ahead and enjoy the RP!

Serill landed on a tree branch with a rather noisy clank. He fluttered his wings, waiting to see whether it would give underneath his metallic body but as it gave an ominous groan that echoed across the snowy clearing it held. He gave a robotic sigh of relief and huddled down against the trunk of the tree, which was on the edge of the clearing and well within view of the static bodies buried in the clearing around him. "And now," he said in his monotonous voice. "we wait."

Nina suddenly awoke, lying face down in the snow. She immediately gasped from the cold and tried to curl into a ball to conserve her body heat. "What?" She asked herself, hyperventilating. "What happened? Why am naked outdoors?" It was like some bad nightmare. Nina hated being cold and her big brown eyes filled with tears as she felt the icy sting all around her. She needed to be strong though. She sat up and made an effort to breath slowly, in through her nose and out through her mouth. "Need to be calm if I want to be ok. What is the last thing I remember?" She said out loud, trying to jog her memory. "I was out for a walk in the woods... But that's all I can remember." Nina said, collapsing her face into her hands. "No. I need to stay calm to stay safe. Why can't I remember how I got here? I must have got knocked unconcious." She exclaimed with inspiration. "I suppose I could have fallen and hit my head. Doesn't explain why I'm in the nip though." She whispered, shivering. She had been wearing dark blue jeans and brown boots as well as a purple jumper and matching wool hat and gloves. "Okay, well what's happened has happened. I need to get back home now." Nina said quietly, looking around her fully for the first time. Nina wandered the forest often and knew it quite while, but she wasn't familiar with this part of it. She didn't see any landmarks she recognised and wasn't even sure what direction to walk in. It was then Nina realised she was not alone. She spotted another body lying in the snow. Someone who had befallen the same fate perhaps? Maybe they'd remember something Nina didn't. Even someone to talk to now would be helpful.

Nina waddled over covering her small breasts with her hands and trying to let as little of the cold air at her lady parts as possible. Nina was a pretty girl, about 5'6 with a very curvy figure. Albeit she was quite light-chested but she had full hips and thighs with a large behind. She had dark brown and eyes and defined facial features. Her makeup was heavy but tasteful, but it had run slightly after lying in the snow. To many the sight of Nina unclothed would have been quite appealing. Her body was shaven all over, a decision she was probably regretting as she field the cold air bite at her skin. She got close to the other body on the ground. Nina crouched down and squeaked slightly as her behind touched the cold snow. Wiping the tears enduced by the cold from her eyes she shook the body on the ground. "Hey, are you still alive?" She asked, looking for a pulse. They seemed to still be breathing and their blood still pumping. "C'mon, wake up. If we don't get out of here soon we're going to freeze to death."

Davina rolled over quickly, harshly kicking out at whoever had touched her. She regretted this immediately as the sudden realization of how cold it was hit her. A myriad of cuss words flew out of her mouth.

After a few moments, her outburst subsided and she stood up, hugging her arms to her chest. She crossed her legs together and pushed her thighs as close as possible. How had she ended up like this? Last thing she remembered was hiking, wearing five different layers and carrying a backpack with several days' worth of food. All of that was gone.

Now she got a good look at her companion. She looked harmless enough. The stranger was a lot taller than Davina was, as well as much more attractive. Both were naked. Davina did not have a good feeling about this...

"It's okay." Nina said, hopping back still squatting with her butt in the snow. "I'm not going to hurt you. I was walking out in the forest, with clothes on naturally, but I can't remember what happened then. Now I'm here and I was wondering if you knew what had happened to us?" Nina looked at the redheaded girl. She didn't look happy nor did she look like she remembered much more than Nina. "But I guess you're the same as me." Nina said with a nervous giggle. She extended her right hand which she had been using to shield its breast counterpart. "I'm Nina." She said trying to look friendly. Nina was often cold at first and didn't like making the first move to get to know people. But considering the circumstances she was willing to come out of her shell. "I've never been to this part of the forest so I'm not really sure where to go. But there's a slight slope that way." She said, pointing to the opposite end of the clearing. "Maybe if we follow the slope we'll find some more familiar territory. We've got to find some sort of shelter soon anyhow. I don't want to be found by explorers with nothing covering me but my hands."

Serril shuffled on the branch as the ones lying in the snow began to stir. He could feel his gears locking up in the cold, but he was too curious as to what was going to arise of the people. He shifted the foot he was standing on to warm up the other. Since when could machines feel the cold. He would have to bring that up with his master. For now however, they were on the move. And that meant so was he. He brought both feet onto the branch and pumped his golden wings into the frigid air. It didn't take long before he landed in a tree overlooking the path the two were slowly trudging down. He should've been more careful, the gears locked up in his wings, sending him screeching headfirst into the snow below, feet flailing futilely in the air. Hopefully someone would come by. Anyone other than Master. He wouldn't be too happy at Serril's carelessness.

"That would be the best option", agreed Davina. Luckily this girl was not as annoying as she could be. "I don't know what happened to us. I really would like to find the bastard that did this and slit his throat." She gritted her teeth before peering around, trying to find an easily navigable path. "Should we go this way?" she asked, pointing towards a part of the slope that was less rocky than most of the other parts.

"Yeah sure." Nina said adding a friendly smile. Underneath her sometimes bleak demeanour was a very positive person. They started to walk towards the path. "So tell me about yourself." Nina said. "We might as well have something to talk about if we're going to be stuck here for a while."

"My name is Davina, and I'm 16", said Davina as the two walked together. "Are you from nearby?" She was really pissed off, but attempting to be polite. This mysterious girl would be stuck with her for presumably a long time. Better to get along than to not. Both had a higher chance to survive in that case.

"Yes, my house is only about a quarter of a mile from the forest. I like to come here a lot, although usually more appropriately dressed than this." Nina said with a laugh. "My dad will probably come looking for me if I'm not back soon so I think we might be alright." She added with a smile. "Until then we're going to need to find some way to stay warm. All the trees will be wet with snow so it will be very difficult to start a fire." Then Nina spotted something high up a tree. "Is, is that a flag?" Nina asked, squinting a little. Her eyesight wasn't perfect but she chose not to wear glasses. "I think it is." It was a large piece of white cloth about the size of a bath towel. "That could provide a little warmth. Give me a boost up into the tree, I have long arms for a girl so I should be able to reach it. But watch where you put your hands." Nina instructed, her tone and face becoming more serious.

Nina was actually intelligent. Thank goodness. "I'm not very strong, but I will try." She ran to the tree before kneeling on her knees in the cold snow, extending her palms out for Nina. The snow was almost unbearably cold against her skin, but she reminded herself of the flag and the warmth it would give both of them.

Nina skipped off Davina's palms and clung to the low branches of the tree. She shuffled up the tree slowly, shivering from the cold. When she was near the top she stretched out an arm and grabbed the flag. With only one arm holding her to the tree though she tumbled down. Luckily the deep snow broke her fall and she wasn't hurt. She sprang back up, dusting the snow from her body and wrapped the towel around Davina and herself. "I know it seems a little gross but if we huddle together we'll stay warmer." Unfortunately because of the height difference huddling together involved pressing Davina's face into Nina's boob. Nina smirked slightly, "Sorry." She said but she found it a little funny.

As the two walked together with the white flag draped over them they eventually came across a tiny shed. Nina gasped and pointed. "Shelter!" She cried. The shed was a tiny outhouse, barely big enough for two people to stand in but it would do. Nina pulled at the door handle. It was difficult to move but eventually she forced it open. She waved Davina inside and quickly followed but she soon regretted the decision. The smell of the tiny cabin was unbearable. Nina gagged as she stepped inside. "Oh my God." She exclaimed as her eyes watered. There was a filthy toilet at the back end of the outhouse. Nina pulled the chain beside it but there was no movement. "The drain's blocked. It can't flush, and there's no toilet paper, and it's fucking filthy." Nina shouted looking at the layer of grime covering the enamel bowl. Nina pulled the door closed behind them. "It's, it's alright. We'll get used to the smell in a little while." She said trying to calm down. "So are you still in high school?" Nina asked, trying to change the subject.

Davina wrinkled her nose at the scent of the toilet. However, she was glad to be in a warmer shed with a flag wrapped around her. "I am still in high school", she said in response to Nina. "Are you in college?" She tried to sit down on the wooden floor of the shed, but a splinter sliding into the back of her thigh was more than enough to deter her. "Fuck", she muttered to herself as she hurriedly stood back up. She pulled the sliver of wood out of her skin before turning to hear Nina's response.

Serril grumbled in the snow. "Help!" he screamed with all his might, and for a mechanical owl it's not much.

"My god, no, I don't", said Davina, quite defensively. She was about to say more, but then heard a cry of help from outside. "I wonder who that was..."

Nina peered out through the door. She looked around but couldn't see anyone else. She shrugged at Davina. "I thought I heard someone too but I can't see anyone. Anyway," She said, feeling the moment had gone. "No boyfriend? Aww well, neither do I actually. Not for a good while now."

"If I hear it again, maybe I'll go out.. There's a chance it could be our kidnapper though. And as far as boyfriends go, people are awful. I'd rather not date." She bit her lip and crossed her arms.

"I'm not awful, am I?" Nina asked. "I'm the same at the moment, but I wouldn't say people are awful. There are definitely some shit ones like, but I've met some really nice people too. I got my first boyfriend when I was 14. I didn't really have many friends until then. I was always kind of a tomboy and I didn't look like much until I hit puberty, not that I look great now. Once I got a bit more of a figure though I got some more attention. My first boyfriend was an asshole though. Took my virginity and then cheated on me. So I just slept around for a while. Then I had my first pregnancy scare and I mean I was fucking terrified. Since then I've not really done anything with a guy." Nina stopped rambling. "Sorry for the life story. But you must like some people?"
