Beating Heart Cafe

Beating Heart Cafe

0 INK

The strange cafe down the corner seemed to perk at the interests of people. They enter, not knowing that there, they were going to find their love.

1,431 readers have visited Beating Heart Cafe since FallenSeraphim37 created it.

Introduction

You were basically just a normal human, unsuspecting of his/her surroundings. When a cafe sprung up in your town, you and your friends decided to check it out. Not knowing that the owner of the cafe is actually the God of Love himself, Eros. He was very friendly, and so were the staff. When you were about to pay, the waiter simply shook his head and said, "You visiting us is enough payment."

When you visited again, the owner came up to you smiling. "Glad to see you again." he says. Friendly as always. But this time, when you came in, your heart nearly stopped. It felt like Cupid had shot an arrow into your heart. You had lain your eyes on the love of your life.

Now there are some certain people that weren't that really affected by the love in the air in the cafe, and thus they were called Dark Lovers- People who were failed, betrayed, or just simply loved in a twisted way.

And this is where we stop. You will forge your story yourself, Mr/Ms. Roleplayer- Welcome to the Beating Heart Cafe.

ROLES: CAFE

EROS/OWNER: N/A
CHEFS: FuyuHana
WAITERS/WAITRESSES: TemplarWarden, Arisato, Arch_Demon666
GUARDS: NerdyWhiteChick, FuyuHana

Now, this part really needs explaining. These are the-

ROLES: DARK LOVERS

THE HEARTLESS: FallenSeraphim37
-The Heartless is the "leader" figure of the Dark Lovers. He had never loved before- And he does not want to experience it. He usually says when asked: "Love is such a pain. People experience it and just get hurt in the end." However, the way to his real heart is through interacting with him and being friendly. Maybe, just maybe, you can break the wall he had built around his heart.

THE TRAGIC LOVER: code6435
-The Tragic Lover is exactly how her/his name says. He/She has lost his/her love a long time ago, making him/her dislike love. The way to the Tragic Lover's heart is through making him/her forget his/her old love and comforting him/her.

THE FAILED LOVER: xLevesquex
-The Failed Lover is the one who was turned down by his/her love. By this, he/she had stayed in despair- And thus making him/her a Dark Lover. The way to the Failed Lover's heart is simple- You must comfort him/her.

THE OBSESSIVE: N/A
-Don't get me wrong- The Obsessive is in love. But she loves in a twisted way- It's either she ends up killing the love of her life, or she kills every person that gets close to him. I can't really say a way into her heart, but if I had a way, it would be being interesting in her eyes.

THE PLAYER: merthur
-The Player is usually the same as his/her name. He/She is counted as a Dark Lover because he/she has many sweethearts- And he/she ends up breaking their hearts at the end of the day. The way to the Player's heart is really, turning yourself into his/her one and only- Irreplaceable, no one can take your place.

So what will you be? A Dark Lover, a member of the staff, or simply a human looking for love?

The choice is completely yours......

Toggle Rules

1. Usual RPG rules must be followed.
2. Yes it's possible for the Dark Lovers (Most specifically the Heartless) can fall in love.
3. If you want to be Eros himself, PM me or IM me if I'm around.
4. No god-modding. Don't make someone fall in love with you instantly against their will.
5. If you need help or you want to reserve one of the roles (Either the staff of the Cafe or a Dark Lover) do it in the OOC thread.
6. Have fun meeting your destiny.

Eros C. Valentino


The God of Love continued to slumber peacefully at the front of the shop. Little by little he felt himself slipping into dream land, but the mumbles and sounds of the shop kept him from slipping away completely. He groaned in annoyance hearing his name from the sea of muffled voices. "Five more minutes..." he pleaded to the who ever wanted him awake. Oh how cruel this world was. Is it so bad for the male to just want to sleep and procrastinate his work? Probably...

By the time he recognized the voice he was now fully awake. He opened one eye peering up at Haru, his attention turned to the sandwich in her hands. His stomach replied for him making another loud growl. "Don't waste food." He groaned as he pulled himself up from his laying position making him sit upright. He smirked at the pink haired girl and stretched his arm out asking for the plate. "You really didn't have to cook, I could have gotten something from Seiri. But It would be such a waste if you threw that out."

He chuckled as he got up and taking the plate from Haru before she could reply. He sat back on the love seat leaving some room for the female to sit with him. He took a bite from the sandwich and smiled. "Not bad," he smirked at her taking another bite. "I might have to fire you from being a waiter and rehire you as a chef." He chuckled at the female.

As he continued to eat he scanned over his cafe. It seems that Haru was right. There doesn't seem much love happening in the building. He watched some of the customers as they went on with their day. He brought his attention to three men two of them he quickly recognized as Shima and his good friend Dea. And another gentle man that seemed to be hating every living soul in this building. He watched as he called on another waiter who brought him a drink. He snarled a little as he watched from a distant. "We're not suppose to be serving alcohol at his time." He gave out a sigh as he continued to watch silently.

Haru's words rung in his head. "I don't see much love going on, it seems more like a cafe to me now." He frowned as he took another bite. Honestly this cafe was the only idea the god had to help the human race find love. But it seemed like it was backfiring, less and less couples seemed to be getting together and more of them seemed to split up. Some would even break up right out side of his lovely cafe. Love is complicated game, so complicated even Eros himself had difficulties playing it.

He looked over at the person sipping his drink. His fingers formed the shape of gun and he pointed them at the male. In his mind it was the arrow he used in the olden days. "Pew" He said quietly to himself pretending to pull the imaginary trigger and hoping it would hit the drinking male. But alas he knew that wouldn't work it wasn't like before where he could just shoot an arrow. He sighed and took another bite of the sandwich. "It's not as easy as it use to be..."

HARU

"No Eros, I wont enjoy that, I'd be to bored." Haru stared at the people walking around and sat next to Eros as he looked around the cafe eating away. "Yes, sir, I did say that." He replied and looked over at him.

Watching as he formed a gun out of his fingers and made a little Pew, Haru pressed his lips together to stop himself from breaking a smile or a laugh. "Love is never easy." Haru would know it best, his relationships would never last long. It was either because they cheated or just got bored of him. So he found it easier to just work at the cafe dating free.

"Well sir you could always try, something new. Like a Fake Love potion or maybe a real one. Anything to make them think that it is love." Haru yawned and shrugged a bit, rubbing the side of his face, his eyes slowly started to close. He didn't get much sleep last night either, but unlike Eros Haru had better control of himself. He didn't fall asleep, just sat there with his eyes shut. "Maybe we could do an event and get things back to were it should be, or maybe change the place up a bit to something more romantic."

Dae Calse


The man across from him seemed rather tense for a drunk guy, and key twitches of grudging could be seen on his face from his state. Normally that would be a bit irritating, but Dae figured that he was being rather uncouth with this stranger, not to mention drunks shifted emotion fast. He wasn’t a very pleasant guy, that one. But nonetheless, Dae had a keen interest in pushing and prodding to see his reactions and test his bounds. With ones that looked like the mysterious stranger, it wasn’t all that bad of an idea; he should at least know what to look out for.

Ari stretched a bit at Shima’s food query, rubbing the back of his head lightly, “Nah, not at the moment. I’ll catch you later on that though.” He dismissed his friend with a small, content smile, and watched as he walked away. Turning back to the man across from him, he rested his arm on the counter and leaned down a bit on it, “So, are you really not going to give me a name?” His tone held little humor unlike it had previously, not really wanting to piss this guy off any more than he already possibly had. He rested his full attention on the man, waiting to see if he’d answer this time.
