Introduction

By Now - Marianas Trench

Two gangs rule downtown Chicago, the Killjoys and the Phoenix's, and they've been at war for years. Other gangs take sides, even though the cause of the feud has long since been forgotten. Innocent people and gang members die, but the war continues. The gang members have families too Husbands, wives, children. The Killjoy leader has a son, and he expects him to follow in his footsteps and lead the gang one day. While that's all well and good, fate has a different plan for him. He is brought up the way that his father wants him to be, learns how to fight, how to steal, and he's excellent at it, a natural. But he had these dreams.

There's another boy in them, always. He seems to grow up with the son of the Killjoy leader, always the same age, always similar. It's just dreams, right? Until he runs into him, and suddenly it's reality. The Killjoy heir follows the boy as far as he can... right to the border of Phoenix territory. The boy remained in his dreams, but darker, somehow.

There was no keeping them away from each other. The boy in his dreams turned out to be the son of the leader of the Phoenix's, and he was extremely reluctant to be around the Killjoy heir. That didn't stop the heir from falling in love with the Phoenix, almost immediately. He kept sending him away, and the heir kept coming back, and the Phoenix let him. The heir tried to stay away, knew it was dangerous, but every time he got sent away, he wanted to run back.

The Phoenix never felt anything for him, but for some reason was drawn to him. That's why, after an accident, he ended up under the heir's window with a tank full of gas and the promise of freedom at three in the morning. He left without even leaving a note.

They made it to New York. The Phoenix refuses to tell the Killjoy what made him leave so suddenly, and he's dying to know. The Killjoy wants to live a normal life as a couple, and the Phoenix doesn't know how to do that. Maybe they just need to start trying to figure each other out.

Image
The Killjoy Heir | FC: Aaron Johnson | Open
Strong, leader-type, can be violent when angry. Shows a completely different side with the Phoenix heir, loves him like crazy and would do anything for him.

Image
The Phoenix Heir | FC: Lucho Zabrana | Taken
Reserved, manipulative, a good fighter. Is reluctant to open up to the Killjoy heir, but is noticeably more patient with him than with others.





β€’ This is MATURE, so you have to be able to handle foul language, sexual themes, possibly other stuff. I don't know.

β€’ I need you to be literate, and when I say that I don't mean I want you to write a book. I want this to be fast paced, I want someone I can write with all day and talk to in between (Gateway's IM system), someone to plot with and obsess over our characters with. 300 word minimum on posts, can go below in situations that are sort of dragged out and you're running out of things to say. I like formatted posts, but it isn't required. Please no dialogue color.

β€’ This is not going to be first come, first serve. It's going to be based on my looking at your past roleplays/characters, and seeing if we can get along well. :)

β€’ As you can tell, I've left the plot fairly open. This is because I want to discuss things with you! So if you have any ideas, feel free to throw them my way!

β€’ Password is whatever your favorite song is, currently.

They had been driving all night. Two days ago he had showed up at Caine's window at three in the morning and asked him to leave with him. Half of him had been expecting him to say no, but the half that held a bit of hope he would say yes had been right. They drove for almost four hours straight before they finally had to stop and rest. They'd found some shitty motel outside a small town in Ohio, slept in the same bed but neither dared do anything but sleep. Caine could probably tell that something was off with Julian, but he was keeping his lips sealed tight. There was no way he was going to tell the other boy about what had happened, he wasn't going to tell anyone ever.

By noon they set off again, and this time with a destination- New York City. It wasn't a bad place, super populated so they didn't have to worry about being found too soon. Julian had stolen a case full of money from his father before they left, so there would be no problems there. They didn't talk much during the drive, only idle chatter here and there, and by the time they were driving into NYC he was starting to get restless. It was odd, because with other people he wanted them to stop talking, but here he was sitting in silence and all he wanted was for someones voice to fill the void.

"Can you look up hotels around the area?" He asks finally, while they're waiting at a red light. After Ohio they had had another six hour drive to where they were now, and he was dying to get out and stretch his legs (and probably take a nap, or get food, he couldn't decide which he wanted to do first). "Cost doesn't matter, just somewhere with good food and comfortable beds."

"Um.. Sure." Caine nodded in reply taking his mobile phone out of his pocket and typing away on it. He couldn't help but feel he'd done something.. Wrong.. It was really weird, the silence was almost disturbing. He just preoccupied himself with looking for the hotels. None seemed appealing. More grime than London in the early 2000s. "Hey, um.. babe? Why are we leaving so suddenly?" Maybe he wouldn't mind him calling him 'Babe'. It would be nice to have a little pet-name. He looked over at Jules, admiring his facial features with a small smile on his face. Maybe this is it, you know? We'd finally be together how I'd always wanted. It could be perfect. The smile grew as he thought about it. Even sooner after, Caine was giddy with hope and.. well.... giddy with the thought of Jules.

Jules might be hating the silence, but that wasn't really the question he had wanted to be asked. He can feel the other boys gaze on him but he doesn't look over, keeping his eyes on the road in front of them as the light turns green and they start moving again. "I just wanted a change of scenery." The lie feels wrong, and even as he says it he knows it's totally not believable. "You find a place yet?" Because he's sick of driving, and it's easier to deflect than try and come up with another bullshit excuse as to why he's not telling him why they left like that.

Caine's smile drops. He's lying. It must be serious? He sighed a little, ran his fingers through his hair and carried on scrolling through a list of hotels on his phone. "Maybe.. we should do some sightseeing or somethin'? We are technically tourists. Could be fun?" Caine suggested, trying to spark a conversation. Finally he came across a place. "How's the Trump Soho? 5-Star and everything. Looks pretty... well, damn. Looks real nice."
