Introduction

Our story begins on a starry night's wimb!

With a son the freak alike.

The father dear man ran the best carnival in the land.

But it was only open at night.

People came and they played all there money away.

And in the day they say...

That the carnival ran away.

One day though it seems.

The father became quite mean.

So mean in fact he only screamed and screamed.

And the carnival rotted away.

Then the son was left all alone.

With a fortune a promise and an idea...

Plot:

There once was a grand Carnival best in the land but it was only open at night... The owner was murdered and his son inherited his fortune but well he had a different idea in mind. So using the resources from the Carnival the son made himself a circus... A circus only open at night. But he kept some of his fathers better rides... At first the circus was not very successful and the name was awful as well but the man stopped in France and being what was and still is called a Freak managed to get many other freaks to join his circus and he also found a name partially in french! The man traveled and got a bit of fame then he married a normal young woman. Because the two of them now owned it which is rare as normals and freaks rarely got married many normals joined as well which made the circus even more popular. Now let's fast-forward! 4 generations later the circus falls into the hands of the most resent heir... This is now where you come in.

The story is set in the 1900's Cirque du Soir has recently been placed in the young hands of it's newest heir. The circus recently took a hard hit and most circus's have gone down hill. This leaves our young characters in a Circus still famous but on hard times non-the less. This is there story... What sort of adventure comes there way depends on them as we have people young and old new and experienced and most popular we have Freaks and Normals alike working peaceful to co-exist. This is very rare... What's even rarer are the freaks... You see they were already being born in small numbers but recently with haters against such things there existence is even more threatened. What will happen in this nightly circus? That's up to you. (i know romance will be allot of peoples goal but I ask you to keep in mind that outside of the circus freak / normals relationships are highly frowned upon so much so that even the people in the circus will probably be afraid to care for someone not like them but if they did the circus would probably keep it hush hush)

Image

Making a Character:

Ok I'm pretty sure we know what kind of people you can find at a circus. The Ring Master the lion tamer fortune teller yadda yadda yadda... And I also know lot's of people tend to want the same spot. Ok so that means if you see a fortune teller already taken... MAKE. SOMETHING. ELSE. I do not want 15 of the same character type I want to see some creativity. And no there won't be any reserving a spot! There is no limit on characters but I do ask that we try to keep the numbers of freak / normal somewhat even. I don't care what sexuality your character is that's up to you I also ask you keep everything original! Please use anime pictures only and the character skelly you can add to the character skelly don't erase you don't need a circus themed picture and there will be no pre-matching up.

Try to keep character ages between 15 and 20 something NPC characters can be older or younger. I will be making the ring master / owner of the circus so there is no mix up and he will be a male I will also make another character probably. I hope to see lot's of diverse characters also if you try to god mode your character I will flat out reject them! This RP is going to be one in which everyone is a main character I do not wanna have that one person who just makes there character so something that the world ends up revolving around them and ruining the fun for the rest of us. Also if you plan on being a freak there are two types freaks with hugeeee physical difference and mental freaks but even if your a more mental based freak you still have some sort of physical thing that makes you stick out. Yes I am done ranting.

Brink Orpheus

Brink looked over at Spade. He wanted to ignore the white haired man badly but he melted under the calm gaze of Spade. "Fine... But you better not pull any stunts on me..." Brink frowned. "One of us injured is enough..." Brink smiled a little and allowed himself to sit back down. "So... What now?" His voice was just a whisper as he stared at the ground. He could hear things still going around the Circus and he wondered if maybe he could sneak out and steal some cotton candy and just wander about. He'd done it allot as a kid but that was when his friend was still there and they both goofed around. Now a days that was not such a case but it would still be fun... Though he'd prefer to do something with his ghosty savior so he was leaving it up to him.

In response to Derrick moving himself closer, Julius wrapped his arms around the younger boy, pulling him close to his chest. It was a familiar gesture, not between the two of them, but of comforting sensations in the past. It had been the way he had been held by his grandfather as a child, the way he'd held his own brother on the rare chances he'd been allowed to as a child, of holding his precious lions when they were ill or he needed the comfort of their warm bodies. It was like a confirmation of an emotional connection, a quiet but sincere expression of love, whether it be friendly or romantic.

Julius couldn't truly discern between the two loves at the moment with Derrick nuzzling into his neck, warm breath tickling his skin with each exhale- he wasn't sure if would be able to make the distinction for quite some time. Was that fair to Derrick? Maybe not but Julius was well aware bringing up that objection now would be completely idiotic. It was a matter to be tended to when the time came, but for now he was content with threading his fingers through the snake tamer's hair, smoothing it down to its original neatness before... before everything had changed.

"Let me be Derrick just for you, okay?" Julius made a humming noise, his hand never pausing. It seemed like Derrick had shed some of the layers that he tended to hide behind, his biting sarcasm, his overly confident flirtations, leaving a fifteen-year-old boy who was desperate to not mess up a relationship with a twenty-year-old man. The thought made his stomach churn a bit. Was this what Lydia had felt like all those years ago? No, it couldn't be- she'd not returned the feelings. Or maybe she had and had simply made the opposite decision. Had he made the wrong decision or had she?

"I wouldn't want you to be anyone else," He instead offered quietly. So he just held him for a while, humming some forgotten song under his breath as he relaxed with the younger man in his arms and desperately hiding thoughts of wrong and right knowing that once he started down that road there would be no stopping.

"So," He said, finally breaking the silence. "I was thinking that maybe we could go visit the lions? Or we could stay here if you'd like." His voice was casual, not pressuring either way. Derrick would have to take the lead here as he would for quite some time. It would be easiest for Julius whose hesitation might bring this relationship to a crippling halt if he allowed it.

Spade gave a shrug, which was really a nearly unnoticeable movement that could probably be mistaken for a breeze moving the loose white tee. "There's a lot going on out there," his gaze drifted towards the exit of the tent, seeing the people ambling around out in the moonlight. "We could just walk around, until we find something to do." You would think that there would be a lot of things to do around a circus. Actually to the point where you should never be bored or without something to do. But when you actually lived and worked in the circus... It could definitely get boring. Though the whole always having something to do still stood, but most of the time whatever needed done was just more work. "It's your choice."



Julius's suggestion of going to see the lions was not perhaps the one Derrick would have suggested himself, but he also reminded himself that his ideas were more along the lines of laying with and cuddling with his friend for the rest of forever. Well, and lots of other things that definitely would not be considering going slow. He couldn't seem to get that certain subject off his mind. It sort of hurt, in a weird way. Though he tried to just keep telling himself that Julius needed time or something. But of course that led him to think that Julius only said yes to make him happy, or that he was still actually deciding if he wanted to do this at all. Really, it was just a bad situation. One bad thought led to another until his head felt like it was going to explode. It wasn't the most pleasant feeling ever.

Instead of voicing this things though- which would be incredibly stupid of him -he just nodded slowly. After a few more moments passed, he pulled away from Julius and grabbed his earlier attire. Quickly he removed the purple shirt- and reluctantly -and put his own clothing back on. It suddenly felt strange being in his own clothing, which sounded just about as weird to him as someone feeling strange in their own skin. His- unique -way of dressing was normal to him, it was who he was, in a silly way. Carefully folding the shirt, he sat it on the bed with a silent promise of coming back for it so he could get it washed properly.

As per usual, Derrick shifted easily back into his old self. "Come on and hurry up, the lions aren't going to wait forever." He winked and made an attempt at tugging his friend out of the caravan and towards the lions den. "It's so exciting, just like meeting the parents," he teased, subconsciously fixing his eye-patch back into place and fixing his hair again.

Re: Cirque Du Soir

Well, I'm now a forgotten character, so I'm just gonna leave in peace...

Re: Cirque Du Soir

sorry that I haven't been posting as often, I still have a lot to do but I'll get posts in when I can.

Re: Cirque Du Soir

Hey you guys, just putting this out right now, I probably won't be able to be on and post regularly starting today until next week because I will be in Texas for music tour, as I have probably explained before. I'm sorry for any inconvenience, but I'll try to post as much as I can while I'm on tour.

Thanks for reading this!

Re: Cirque Du Soir

You guys, I'm really sorry I haven't been able to post lately, it's just that we have an academy days coming up from Sunday to Monday, and I've been busy with that and soccer, but I really wanna stay in this roleplay. Also, we have music tour coming up, and we leave on Tuesday really early in the morning, so I don't think I'll be able to post during that time.

Re: Cirque Du Soir

Oh! ok, I can edit that when I get the chance, DnD dayt. :)

Re: Cirque Du Soir

Hey, Kyuukonhime, Lenka wasn't reprimanding Spade for clapping. She was reprimanding her animated doll when he squeaked in pain for making noise. Just to clear that up ^_^

Just like usernames said, it really isn't going that fast, heh. Breakfast isn't even over, they're just sitting around and talking. No need for any knickers to get twisted. ;)

Well, it may seem like it's going fast, but, really, nothing much has happened. Like, at all. Most people have basically just started having breakfast and chatting amongst one another. XD

Re: Cirque Du Soir

sorry I haven't been posting lately, school's been kicking me in the butt lately. I'll get a post in eventually. :D

Re: Cirque Du Soir

I don't exactly know what's going on. :P

Re: Cirque Du Soir

@kyuukonhime: A spider woman does seem to be an interesting character. :)

Anywho, I'd like to point out how fast this RP seems to be going. :P Although it's going at a decent speed, some of us (like me, for example) may have a difficult time getting onto a computer, or wifi sometimes...

Re: Cirque Du Soir

would you really like a spider woman hugging you? >D

Re: Cirque Du Soir

awe :/ I'm soo sorry Lavender...
hope to see you in another RP :)
