D.Ed & Co.

D.Ed & Co.

0 INK

Seven people received a job offer because of their...uniqueness. Welcome to D.Ed & Co. - where morals are questionable things. Full!

632 readers have visited D.Ed & Co. since LenHaert created it.

Introduction

An Actress
A Criminal
A High School Teacher
A Published Writer
A Young Millionaire
A Teen Mathematical Genius
A Ten Year Old Girl


What do they have in common? They have all been invited to Lord Cain Wanderer Charity Ball. They all have a connection or a past experience with Lord Cain Wanderer. They have all met at the Charity Ball. They all have abilities that they cannot explain.
When Lord Cain Wanderer appears at the Charity Ball and tells them that he wishes for them to become acquainted with each other because they would be seeing each other a lot in the future, they all think not much of it.
Until they get a letter from Lord Cain Wanderer a few weeks later. Each of the letters says the same thing.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to give you a chance to understand your new abilities. Before you ask, yes, I know about them.
To help you understand and eventually control your abilities, I would like you to accept a job offer from me.
The details will be given when I see you on September 30th. A car will be waiting outside your residence to take you to my Manor at 11 o'clock.

Regards,
Lord Cain Wanderer.


* * *

Each of the characters is the embodiment of one of the seven deadly sins. They have been gathered by Lord Wanderer to work for him in an organization called D.Ed & Co. They only got the rough idea of the many things that D.Ed & Co. does but the main ones are:

Whatever Lord Wanderer tells them to. (E.g. Spying, Killing, Cheating, Stealing, Making sure that people do what Lord Wanderer wants them to.)

No, really. He gives the job, you do it. While still being able to continue with your normal life – if you wish to do so. So yes, while doing some spying, the Ten Year Old Girl will also live with her parents and go to school. The Actress will continue to act while stealing some priceless item that Lord Wanderer wishes to have.

The Characters (Slots Are Open!):
Lord Cain Wanderer (LenHaert)
(Greed) An Actress (SeraphicStar)
(Envy) A Criminal (Belynta)
(Pride) A High School Teacher (Rickmaster01)
(Gluttony) A Published Writer (HeroValour)
(Lust) A Young Millionaire (ViviOrunitiaFF9)
(Sloth) A Teen Mathematical Genius (The_Rebel)
(Wrath) A Ten Year Old Girl – who is too smart for her age. (Lumana)

Character reservations last 24 hours. Also, please understand that I can either accept or decline your character. No hard feeling :) x


This Role-Play will be about those seven people interacting with each other, dealing with basically having two lives, figuring out and controlling their powers, how they deal with doing things that are rather illegal (Because, you know, Murder is not exactly legal and the characters, believe it or not, do have morals and emotions – well, unless you choose them not to have any) and figuring out how each of them are connected to Lord Wanderer and who exactly he is. Because, you know, they might see him every time they get a mission and sometimes more often than that but it doesn't mean that he'll tell you about himself.

Abilities ~

I'll leave figuring out the abilities for yourself. Just make sure that you don't post something stupid – like Wrath having an allure that will make men go all ga-ga or Sloth being able to make people workaholics. The abilities can be physical traits or not – its up to you. And there's a limit to abilities – two things at most. I don't want anyone thinking that they've become some kind of God, well, unless they're Pride then you might want to let your character think that :P Only a suggestion.

Setting ~

Right, this will take place in England. However, some of the missions will take your characters to other parts of the world. The Base is Lord Wanderer's Manor somewhere in Yorkshire. Your characters can be from other parts of England – Lord Wanderer will take care of the transportation. So no worries there. :)

Lord Cain Wanderer considered himself an exceptional businessman who knows his people and how to deal with them. The proof of this stood (or sat) before him, as he was leaned back in the comfortable armchair in his office at Wanderer Manor. Seven individuals were before him - of various ages. Four females and three males. His deadly sins.
A smile crept upon his face as he watched them sit or stand around, some looking at him, some looking everywhere but him. He knew them all rather well, more than they thought that he did. Cain wasn't an idiot, long ago, where he first realized their importance, he dug up their life history. They were all different - so...special. An all were before him, unsure of their fate. They knew about the job offer. They knew that he knew about their abilities. Then, the list of the knowledge about this gathering stopped for them.
"Ladies, Gentlemen." Lord Cain decided to speak, as he knew that some of them were rather unnerved about this. "You all know that I gathered you here to give you a job offer. One that you cannot refuse."
He waited for their reaction. Some looked at each other, some let their eyes widen. Some didn't do a thing.
"I would like you to work for my company - its called D.Ed & Co." He continued."You're probably wondering what you would be doing." Cain saw the spark of curiosity that appeared in their eyes. "As I gathered a rather strange group here. A stunning and talented actress. A life-hardened criminal. A knowledgeable teacher. A famous author of one of my favorite books. A charming your millionaire. A mathematical genius beyond her years. And a feisty yet kind girl." As he mentioned each of them, he gave a curt and polite nod to each.
"D.Ed & Co. deals with a range of things - mostly whatever the client wants. If they have enough money, that is. "He chuckled darkly. "You are an exceptional group that I'm sure will be great for it. Not only that, I believe that you are made to do this." Cain was silent for a second, taking in their expressions. "Why do I believe so, you may think? Well, maybe its the fact that you seven are the embodiment of the seven deadly, original sins - Greed,"He motioned to Charlotte, the actress "Envy," Cain gave a mock bow to Cassandra, the criminal. "Pride," He nodded at Drake, the high school teacher. "Gluttony," He waved at Alex, the writer. "Lust," Cain mock bowed again, this time at Jonathan, the millionaire. "Sloth" He smiled at Angela, the maths genius. "and finally, Wrath." He motioned to Reaine, the ten year old girl.

Alex sat in a chair, half reading and half listening to the man before him. While his face was in the book, seeming disinterested. Alex was,in fact,becoming more interested in what the man was saying, he spoke as though he had rehearsed this very meeting for a long time, his voice also held a sinister overtone. Alex could tell immediately, this was not a man to mess with, making Alex shudder at what he could do. Alex was also unsettled by the fact that the man knew more about him, than Alex knew of the man. He would change that with time, Alex always found his answers.

Alex took note of the vagueness of the job description, words like "cannot refuse" and "anything the client wants" made him wary of the extent of those words. "Was he going to make us do absolutely anything the client asked?" he thought, chills ran through his blood at the thought of murder being a possibility. He calmed himself, he would cross that bridge if he got there. He raised his head, as the man began to recite the seven deadly sins, labeling each individual as one of them. He blinked when his name was labelled to gluttony. He couldn't exactly disagree, he craved knowledge more than anything, but that wasn't bad enough to be considered sin, was it? He began to glance around at the other six people, he did not know any of them. Alex leaned back in his chair, whatever he was involved in now, it did not seem like he could leave without consequences. Besides, the job peeked his interest a little.

"Excuse me?" Charlotte stepped forward, putting her hands on her hips defiantly. "How dare you even think to say that I am the embodiment of a sin, of...of greed?"

It was certainly an interesting opening statement, she'd give him that. Charlotte had expected some kind of publicity event for the charity ball. After all, she recognized Mr. Capo, the famous novelist. She'd read an article about him in a magazine once, promoting a new book or something. As for the others, well...perhaps they were somewhat famous as well. She never expected this Lord Cain person to bring her and the others here to talk business. Very vague, mysterious business at that.

"I demand an explanation, Sir." Without realizing it, Charlotte crossed her arms across her chest. Had she noticed, she would have gotten flustered. Charlotte only found herself crossing her arms like that when she was nervous.

"What do you mean 'an offer we cannot refuse?'" On a morbidly curious level, the night was turning from a boring charity event to something interesting...

"Miss Westbrook, I mean every word I say. You are the embodiment of greed. As the rest of you are embodiments of the other sins." Lord Cain smirked at her as he let his chin lean on his hands. "You were born a sin - a demon, if you will. Sent to Earth from the depths of Hell for... a second chance. Naturally, you were not supposed to find that out, nor were your powers supposed to surface."
He let the statement sink in with them.
"However, as you can see, nothing went to plan, did it? You are here, after all." Lord Cain continued. "Don't take this as a bad thing, it is a fantastic opportunity. You were given a chance at life that no one as ever been able to have." He made sure to look each of them in the eye as he said it.

Drake fidgeted as he heard the sentence, "Sent to Earth from the depths of Hell for a second chance..." Drake shuffled his vision from a nearby window over to Lord Cain. "This is the most idiotic thing I have ever heard in my life, Lord Cain... What makes you believe we are all demons sent from Hell? These powers that we have are a gift, and I completely understand that...but to say we are demons? Isn't that the slightest bit far fetched?"

Drake wanted answers. This was all fine and dandy until he heard the word that gave him goosebumps out of fright. Drake continued to look into Lord Cain's eyes expecting the complete truth, but deep inside Drake, Drake knew it was true. It had to be, there is no other way... Drake knew what he had done to his sister and considered the fact he was an evil being not meant to be here to ruin peoples lives. He just wants to make sure this is the utter and complete truth. Once Lord Cain's mouth opens to speak the words of actuality, Drake will join Lord Cain, no matter the outcome, he knows his life will change...maybe even for the better...

Angela listened carefully as Lord Cain Wanderer explained to them why they were there. She had heard her be classified as the sin sloth. It was absurd. She didn't sleep any more than the average teen and she wasn't any more lazy than one either. She wasn't aware of anything overly special about her other than her brain. So she was smart, that didn't mean that shewas sent from Hell...right?

"Demons? That doesn't make any sense. I'm sorry Lord Cain but I do not believe a word you're saying. It just doesn't add up." Angela had considered the possiblity of Heaven and Hell many, many times. She just didn't believe it. She had known greedy, terrible men that had wanted to exploit her mathematical genius and she wouldn't go so far to say that the Lord wasn't going to do the same. Her intelligience was why he wanted her, not because she was supposed to have been born with evil super powers. "I'm not going to be part of your greedy plan to use us for money, and I certainly won't be believing in demons."

"Miss Torren, Mr Verano. I am speaking the truth - you are demons. Haven't you ever done anything that shouldn't be possible? Influencing people in ways that shouldn't happen? Making them...unable to remember something?" Lord Cain questioned, the smirk never leaving his face. " This all may sound like a poorly written scenario for a TV Series but I guarantee that this is the truth. I wouldn't lie to you. As for the money, Miss Torren. I have enough money as it is - and if I wanted a mathematical genius, I could always use one that already employed by me. I am giving you an opportunity, to, well, discover yourself as cheesy as it may sound. And get stable employment with quite a lot of zeros on your paycheck."

Jonathan was curled on a chair with his eyes closed until he heard Lord Cain speak. He opened his eyes and looked up when he was mentioned.
"A charming your millionaire." Jonathan was barely listening to him at all but payed attention now.
"Lust,"
No surprise there... Jonathan had always had his way with people. People seemed drawn to him and it got stronger as he moved closer to them. Once, he had just touched a man's arm, not meaning to be sexual as Jonathan was straight...well... debatably but that's besides the point, anyway, he touched the guy's arm and the man literally jumped on him and tried to take his pants of. That ended quite badly for the man...
"What exactly do you mean by a job we can't refuse?" Jonathan stood up and straightened his grey, long sleeved, top. He looked back up at the man.
"Why would you want to work with Demons?" He took a step forwards.
"Help us?" Another step.
"Make us do your bidding?" Jonathan took the final step that lead him to Lord Cain.
"Spill."

Drake looked away from Lord Cain for a moment. Letting all this sink in. He looked outside the window and saw his past life, the school, his friends, his sister... He knows they would all diminish in time from this job. He knows this job is an important stepping stone for his life.

Drake looked back to Lord Cain and walked towards him, he walked near Jonathan and advanced a little further to Lord Cain. Drake now standing in front of Lord Cain, he extended his right hand and said,

"I'm in..."

Drake suddenly felt that a smile crept up on his face. This is something big and Drake wants to know more of his powers, even if it means doing anything for a client...

"Mr Darkholme, you could say that...I'm fascinated with Demons. Especially ones as special as you." Lord Cain chuckled. "I would never force you to do my bidding. Not you seven. As for help, well, if you need it then I'm here to give it to you. " He then turned to Drake. " Well then, Mr Verano, welcome to D.Ed & Co."

Jonathan considered everything for a second and then held out his hand. He noticed that his top and grey zipper were covering it almost completely, like usual, and pulled the sleeves back a little.
"I accept your invitation. It's not like i have anything better to do..." Jonathan thought of his aunt for a second but pushed the thought away.

This was insane. Charlotte was no demon. She was an actress - and a damn good one at that. Not some evil being sent from Hell to do...whatever it is demons do. And Greed? How dare he say that! Greed was something so ugly, so...unrefined. She considered herself to be ambitious and sure, she liked shopping and buying material possessions but that doesn't mean she's a demon!

Unbeknownst to Charlotte it was her greed that kept her rooted to the spot. Lord Cain was offering her and the others a large sum of money. But for what? Nothing is just handed to you like that. Charlotte was put off by the man's speech but intrigued by the proposal. It couldn't hurt to know a bit more about the situation, right? Besides, if this man was going to go around calling her a demon of greed she might as well find out why.

"I'm not saying I believe you for an instant, Sir," she kept her voice level and curt, "But I'm listening. Go on..."

"Welcome on board, Mr Darkholme." Lord Cain said as he shook his hand. He then turned to Charlotte. " My proposition is simple - I pay you £25 000 a month for working for me while you can still get on with your life, if you wish to do so. You complete the missions I give you - they may include spying and possibly assassination for some of you among other things. All while I'll give you full access to any and all resources I have about demons - so you could learn about yourself and perfect the use of your abilities." His eyes flickered to the rest of the group. "I'm sure that you'll agree that that is a more than fair proposal."

Cassandra Mackenzie leaned against one wall where she had clear view of all the others in the room as well as the exits. She was not being paranoid simply careful as in her line of work you messed up and you got killed. She listened as the others all demanded answers or expressed outrage at what this Lord Cain had suggested. For herself she found it quite easy to believe, why else did she not bat an eyelid at killing when most other people she met could not stomach doing such a thing. The envy part was also unsurprising as Cassie had always been aware that she envied people and it was often why she chose wealthy or high powered targets. She was undecided as to whether to join this little group or not as she was naturally wary of becoming trapped in a situation not easily escapable.

"If I don't like working for you, can I leave when I choose?" Cassie asked bluntly. "If yes then you've got yourself a hired killer."

Angela froze as Lord Cain mentioned people not remembering things. Every spanish teacher she had ever had mysteriously forgot what they were doing when they tried to teach the class how to count in spanish. The entire class had forgotten and Angela had been left the only one counting. "I'm completely against murder. I won't be a part of any assassination and I definetly won't kill anyone. I won't witness a murder, I don't want to know when one goes on, and I don't want to know who does it." Ange eyed the woman that had called herself a hired killer. "If you can promise me that then I would loved the opprotunity to learn more about what i'm capable of." Secretly Angela also desired the chance to gain her own money and escape her parents once and for all. She didn't need their apartment or their hired workers. She was a genius and she intended to use every single one of her talents to make a name for herself...and maybe a little money along the way.

Lord Cain nodded at Cassandra. "As long as you sign a legally binding document not to discuss anything you did while working for me with anyone else." He said and then looked at Angela. "I see no problem with that, I'm sure some of the others are more than capable of dealing with the assassinations."

#, as written by Lumana
Reaine sat quietly by a window in the study of Lord Cain's Mansion. She had been slipped an invitation to his charity ball after winning a statewide science competition. Her parents had accompanied her to the event and it was there that Lord Cain had given her an invitation to this meeting. Sure, she didn't know Lord Cain and sure her parents had told her that accepting invitations from strangers were bad. But, it was...intriguing to say the least. Plus, whatever her parents didn't know wouldn't hurt them and it wasn't like skipping school was something she had never done before.

Not including Lord Cain, there were six other people in the room. Some she had seen in passing at the Charity Ball but she didn't know any of them. However, Reaine could have sword that one of them was the writer Alex Capo and another was an actress who's name was escaping her. Honestly she felt out of place, though Reaine was a very mature girl, she was still a child and she knew it. Everyone else in the world was much older then her, and bigger she thought.

Reaine was the last one in the room so she didn't have to wait long before Lord Cain began his speech. He opened up with talking about a job offer, something that Reaine was confused about and that confusion was a little evident on her little face but she didn't say anything. Next he introduced each of the group and told them that they were the embodiments of the seven sins, and that Reaine herself was wrath. Reaine's first reaction was to laugh at such an absurd idea, but she couldn't laugh at it. As stupid as it sounded, it made sense...in a twisted illogical sort of way. She was exceptional good at getting revenge, even enjoyed it secretly. And of course there was 'the incident', she didn't regret that at all.

Wrath... the idea made her shutter but at the same time it peaked her interest. As many of the others burst out at the absurdity, Reaine merely shifted in her chair to look out the study window and think. She kept half an ear on the conversations but only picked out pieces of the conversations, she was much to deep in thought to give the others much thought. Her ears did perk up upon hearing Lord Cain say they were demons given a second chance. That was absurd but once again it did offer an answer, if illogical. Reaine had actually thought about it before but it was just so absurd.

Reaine turned back from the window and looked at Cain, "So, say I was to go ahead with this notion that I'm the Demon of Wrath. Considering I would be one of the seven deadly sins, supposedly one of the most evil demons to have ever come into existence, released at the time of Eve taking the apple. Why would God give me, or for that matter anyone in this room a second chance? The very notion seems absurd but it's even crazier if we believe it. I highly doubt anything we could have done in Hell would have been 'good' enough for God to give us a second chance." Reaine cocked her head to the side cutely and gave Cain a small smile that seemed to say 'I got you'. If he could answer her question sufficiently or she was allowed to research his so called proof before accepting any contract then she might agree to him. As for any sort of jobs that it might entail, Reaine was fairly fine with, though she was a little wary about the murder idea. She didn't like killing, though she knew she could kill someone if she had to.

Lord Cain smirked. "I was wondering when someone would ask that." He said to her. " Well, my theory is that after spending billions of years, almost your whole existence, in the depths of Hell, in the worst place imaginable, God has decided to give you a second chance. Don't religious people believe that God is all-forgiving? This may be the case, or another of my theories is, that your embodiment is a part of his master plan - something similar to the world being flooded in Noah's time. I do not have a concrete theory of why exactly you are here. It's not like I go and have tea and a chat with God. " He chuckled. "It is one of the things that I was hoping to uncover as we continue to work together."

Drake walked away from Cain and listened in on what the girl said. He soon thought about her question as he stood by a window, watching people walk on the English streets made him smile. He knew of an answer that may be interesting to poke around about. Since Drake and the other six had extraordinary powers he knew why God chose them...

"The only reason I would think God chose us for a second chance, is probably an absurd and idiotic idea, but I think I know. He might be planning us to be his Dark twisted group of defenders. I don't know what for and why, but that may be an idea. Oh and one thought I'd like to mention before you all decide to pour onto me of how us being Dark defenders is childish. Satan used to be God's right hand man, but it ended once Satan challenged God, convincing himself he was the more powerful being and he should rule the Heavens. God won the challenge, of course, and at that moment struck Satan down. Satan became a falling angel and made Hell, knowing he needs to rule something and try to wage a war against God and Heaven. Maybe God wants us to be his little group of mortals helping him out in the world, keeping it balanced from Satan and other evils. He knows we are special and he wants to put us to use rather than to let us rot in Hell for eternity... He wants to use our evil powers to make the other evils in the world perish. Once we are done though... I'm not sure, but I think he'll cast us down to Hell. That's what I would do if I were him..."

"That is something you all must think about, but remember I may be wrong..."

Drake breathed in after he was done unloading this statement onto everyone, this was even directed to Lord Cain. Drake nodded to himself thinking this has to be the answer, but he still has doubts...

#, as written by Lumana
Reaine listened intently to Lord Cain's words. His theory was interesting, but it wasn't concrete enough, many of the dots were just not adding up in her mind. To make matters worse she felt like she was being used by Lord Cain to an end that she couldn't even begin to fathom, it was disconcerting to her and gave Reaine half a mind to decline right there. However, he had gotten her thinking though and his words had once again brought the questions of how and why her powers existed into her mind. The puzzle was growing more complex, and to Reaine it was only the most complex and confusing puzzles that were worthwhile to solve.


"The only reason I would think God chose us for a second chance, is probably an absurd and idiotic idea, but I think I know."

Reaine swiveled her head and stared up at the man who had retreated to the window. She thought that Cain had called him by the name of Drake, but she wasn't sure. He seemed to be staring off out the window in thought, much like she was prone to doing. He seemed to fall into line with Lord Cain's idea and even expounded on it somewhat. Reaine bit her lip, she didn't like the idea that she might be a demon, it seemed....sad.

"Perhaps I will agree with you for now." she said, emphasizing the for now. "However, being somewhat religious, I would like to think that God is not so cruel as to supply his tools with false hope." Reaine blew a little bit of hair out of her face as she thought about the choices she had. Finally though she hopped out of her chair and strode up to Lord Cain's desk. "I accept your offer Lord Cain" she said as she stuck out her small hand to shake his. "But know this, if I solve this puzzle and the answers it provides are not beneficial to me...I will bring you down. I will not be a tool to be used and cast aside." Reaine gave a small swallow at what she had just said. It was a two pronged spear, one point was aimed at Lord Cain, the other...was at God.

Alex soaked in all the information that was being spoken between them all. While he was not a religious man, the things they all discussed made him curious. Though the purpose that they all were together was still a mystery to all of them. They all held their own theories and ideas, that only held so much ground. Still, he hung onto the words "perfect use of your abilities" that Lord Cain had spoken off. His mind reading was still very limited in use, but maybe he could improve it by joining this little cult of his.

Alex stood up, walking over to Lord Cain. He had one test he wanted to issue on Lord Cain. "While all this information is highly guesswork at best. I can't help but wonder what you stand to gain from all this Lord Cain." he commented. He looked over all the other members, scanning them carefully before turning back to Lord Cain. "Overall, I am interested in this little group. So you can count me in." Alex added, extending his hand for a greeting. If Lord Cain truly knew about his powers, he would be hesitant to shake his hand, else his mind could be read.

Charlotte stood beside the other guests, listening to them theorize on how it could actually be possible that they were all demons from Hell. It was insulting and absolutely ridiculous. She wasn't a demon. She wasn't evil. How could someone just accept an idea so outrageous as the truth? This Lord Cain seemed to be just as nutty as the rest of the lot. There was even a child here. She couldn't be any more than ten or eleven...although she spoke like an educated adult which was rather unsettling. The fact that he had roped in a little girl with this story was unforgivable and Charlotte was just about to leave when - "My proposition is simple. I pay you £25 000 a month for working for me while you can still get on with your life, if you wish to do so." The actress froze in place, her mouth slightly open.

'£25 000? £25 000!?' All that money to do a few odd jobs for a man who believed in nonsense about Heaven and Hell and demons and who knows what else? Regardless of whether or not she believed him, that sum of money was something Charlotte could not dismiss lightly. Her attitude shifting from outrage to cool and serious as she confidently strode toward Lord Cain.

"Show me. I won't believe you until I see the money. Show it to me and I'll play your little game...for now."

What could it hurt to just go along with it for now...right?

Lord Cain smirked, all of his guests were forming ideas in their heads. It was interesting to see.
"It is possible, Mr Verano. Right now, anything is. Unfortunately, I do not have any clear answers right now, like I said, I hoped to uncover them as we continue to work together." He then turned to Reaine. " I wouldn't treat you like a tool, Miss Sterana. It would not be beneficial for me, or you. I would like to consider you seven as, partners of sort." He clasped her hand, shaking it firmly. "Welcome to D.Ed & Co, Miss Sterana."
Lord Cain kept his hands firmly at his sides as he eyed Alex. "Mr Capo, I would like to welcome you, too. I would love to shake your hand if you would promise not to use your powers on me."
"Miss Westbrook, I hope that you find this satisfying." Lord Cain took out a large stack of brand new banknotes and threw it at her. "This is exactly £6250, exactly a quarter of what you will get each month." He stopped for a second. "That is of course, when you join us."

Alex watched as Lord Cain kept his hands firmly at his sides. That alone affirmed that Lord Cain knew of Alex's power. He passed off the handshake, mainly because he could not control his mind reading. "I expect to learn many things while working for you Lord Cain" he commented, returning to his seat.

He leaned out in his chair, seeming reading his book. However, he was examining the others around him. He noted how Lord Cain had spoke of becoming partners. While partnership was far from a strong point of his, he toyed with the idea of having people to share knowledge with. However, he was cautious of people he had no knowledge of. He knew they must all have something above average about them, else they wouldn't be here. He frowned internally, this lack of knowledge about his surroundings was disturbing, to say the least. He needed details.

"What else can you tell us about your little company here?" Alex asked, his eyes focused carefully on Lord Cain.

Most recent OOC posts in D.Ed & Co.

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

Nope I've been waiting for it too. But I'm sure it's long dead now.

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

Um guys. No one is posting at all... I'm getting the feeling this roleplay has been abandoned. Anyone else still waiting for someone to post like I am or am I alone?

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

I wouldn't mind if he told us to do it at the beginning >.< But it just seems to be pointless right now. To do it all over again? Deadline for this part of project is this week, I wouldn't be able to do it! Had such a rant about it to my friends yesterday xD I think I scared them!

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

Good for you, it's ridiculous that you should do it on a computer if you can do the same project better on paper. Do what feels most comfortable to you and the teacher should conform to how you learn. Humans arn't black and white, not everyone can do the same thing one way.

*Hugs*

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

Aww, you poor thing! *hugs* I know how you feel. For the past four months, I've been doing a Graphics project and have finished 16 pages and the teacher told me to do it all over again because they want me to do it on computer. Told them where to shove it and didn't do it xD

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

Yay, Len's back. And I know how you feel. I'm two hours of sleep right now because I was doing work all night long. (>.<)

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

Hey guys, I'm back! School's still a pain, however.

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

@Rickmaster01 Yup ^.^

I won't be able to post until next Tuesday. I have shed load of homework to do that's due in Monday-Tuesday time so yeah, I'll definitely will try but its doubtful. Sorry guys xx

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

We can start posting now right?

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

Attention Everyone!

You'll all be happy to hear that we have a full house! *applause* We can now start the RP (finally!)

I'll be posting the first post soon - it will be the starting on your meeting on 30th September, just so you know. More to be explained in the post.
Have fun, peeps!

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

I can't double up due to the fact I have so many things in my hand. I also wish to write more on my story (Yes, I do indeed write stories other than just RPing...) And my school is giving lot's of work for me to do.

Don't worry because I will be committed to this as well, but doubling up is one thing I can't do.

Maybe someone else could do it, but I know I can't.

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

Does anyone want to double up on characters so that we can get this started?

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

@Lethalan Actually there is one spot left - the Published Writer :)

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

Have all the positions been filled?

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

Thanks for accepting my application! Can't wait to get this started you guys.

Hopefully soon enough the last slot will fill up, so let's cross our fingers to hope that it happens by tonight!

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

lol I just noticed that Angela is socially inept too so conversation between her and Cassie would be...interesting hehe

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

I am definitly exited. This is a RP with more promise then any I've seen in awhile.

Glad to have you on board Rick. (^.^)

EDIT:
ahahaha Angela and Reaine. They have a surprising amount in common, but because of there differences I can't see them getting along too well. Although I can see Reaine getting along well with Johnathon....as long as he doesn't accidentaly put his charm on her. Then if she ever found out she might be a little angry XD

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

@Rickmaster ~ Welcome to D.Ed & Co.!

Also, we're now only waiting for someone to be the Published Writer and we can start the RP since SeraphicStar has agreed to be The Actress.
Is everyone else as excited as me? :D

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

I submitted an application. This is my first time on this site!

Oooh, don't worry! I know how to role-play so you can breathe out!

Lol thanks if you let me in.

This looks extremely interesting and I am beginning to like it already!

Re: [OOC] D.Ed & Co.

@Belynta ~ Your character has been accepted :) x

[Edit] Right, Unfortunately Spectrum had to leave us due to being part in too many RPs and still had a real life to deal with, so the slot for the Published Writer is now open. I will also post in Roleplayers Wanted forum to find the missing characters so we could start the RP. If anyone knows people that would be willing to RP in this, please can you tell them about the open character slots? Kay, thanks :)

AS A REMINDER, CAN ANYONE WHO HASN'T ALREADY DONE SO PLEASE FILL OUT THEIR CS ASAP? THANKS :)
