How We Used to Be

How We Used to Be


"I want to go back to the days where love was more than a word, being together was for a lifetime, and saying goodbye was only until tomorrow."

2,004 readers have visited How We Used to Be since Wafflesx created it.



Everyone looks for adventure one point or another in their life. Some are small while others are big. Some are just dreams, while others turn them into reality. Our characters all come from a small town in Alaska. A place where life is simple. Each person knew one another, where secrets and rumors are just over the fence. This small town has its perks. The local stores are just a few blocks down, the city is just a 2 hour drive, and the view is breathtaking. The winters are cold and the summer sun is endless, but this was what they called home.

Being kids, there was that carefree attitude; that attitude where you ruled the world and nothing else mattered. Tomorrow was too far to not embrace the present. But one can only be a child for so long. Soon or later, we all have to grow up and take the things life gives at us. Its not always easy, and sometimes it brings more pain than happiness, but that's life... We all have dreams and wishes that we want to pursue. As much as staying a kid forever sounds great, we don't live in Neverland. This is the story where Peter Pan grew up and became a lawyer, where Wendy became a doctor, and where Tinker Bell was nothing but an imaginary friend of a child. We all grow up at one point or another. Some before others, but we all get there.

But what if.....just if....for a few weeks, you can rekindle that child inside you. The inner carefree spirit that has been dying to explode. That little bit of pixie dust that can make you fly? Would you do it?

Typically, people spend their summer somewhere warm and tropical, but could you really deny your family? A reunion is being held by the parent's of the characters. Its been about 10 years since they've seen one another and some things weren't left on the right note. Could the past be something to look forward to? A rekindled childhood from a fairytale? Or will it be your ghost?

Side Note: There's not a big plot to this story but rather just an introduction. I want it to be mostly character driven and be a big sand box. It'll be nice for you to throw in your ideas and make this roleplay yours as well. I want this to be a shared experience and not really have me as a puppet master. So really, anything goes. I only ask that you guys write more than one line; so at least a paragraph.

By creating Collectibles, you can reward your players with unique items that accentuate their character sheets.

Once an Item has been created, it can be spawned in the IC using /spawn Item Name (case-sensitive, as usual) — this can be followed with /take Item Name to retrieve the item into the current character's inventory.
