the gods have always been fascinated by human affairs. wars have been won and lost through their meddling intervention. crops have flourished, only to be destroyed by storms when a human has been favoured by one god but not another. kings have been chosen and monarchies destroyed depending on the gods. there are many infamous stories of heroes made and heroes destroyed by the gods' favour.

but some of the most infamous stories of all are those of lovers kept apart or destroyed by fate. the gods of love often get the blame. how cruel she is, we cry, keeping those who are clearly meant to be together apart! but the gods of war often interfere, afraid their best soldier will be lost to a woman he loves. the gods of fortune prevent a rich man from marrying a poor woman. the gods of agriculture ensure those with the best stocks marry and ensure that the earth will flourish for years to come. fate comes in many different forms.

the gods of love wants these lovers to be together. so their souls are reborn, again and again, with the hope that this time, this time, maybe they'll finally get the ending they deserve. it seems that every time, it fails to work out. this time, it will work, the gods of love tell themselves.

the souls of the lovers have once again been reborn, and through fate, gather in the modern day los angeles as a group of friends. will this time be the time they get their happy endings?

or will their stars be cross'd once again?

some quick rules! first things first, a reminder that god-modding is forbidden. god-modding typically means controlling a character without their player's permission. so when in doubt, ask. obviously romance is a given here, but keep it within site rules. most importantly, if things get steamy, either fade to black or bring it off site. violence is a possibility, and i'd just ask that you don't go too graphic with it. there will be adult themes within the rp. if you're not comfortable with any of the content, please PM me and we can work around it or i can ask other players to alter as necessary. please keep the drama to the ic. any issues arising among members of the rp should be dealt with over pm. reservations go in the ooc as they're easier to keep track of. real face claims only, please. characters should be in their twenties, as a guideline. you have 48 hours to submit a WIP. that WIP can be a blank sheet, i just want something in to know you're still on board. you will then have 5 days after submitting your WIP to finish your character. i will grant extensions as long as you pm me. any further questions or issues, please pm me! i don't bite, promise. when reserving, i'd like your character's face claim, a 250x250 image of said face claim, and their hex colour.

the character descriptions are guidelines more than fast and hard rules, feel free to interpret them as you wish. you're more than welcome to tweak them, and i'm always open to new ideas for characters if you let me know! more characters can be added depending on demand.

man 1 and woman 1 have always been best friends. and more importantly, they were the people that everyone else wanted to be. man 1 was captain of the football team, valedictorian, and a genuinely nice guy. woman 2 was the captain of the softball team, captain of the debate team, and spearheaded every fundraising campaign in middle school and high school- and again, a genuinely nice girl. rumours of them dating followed them the whole time they were in school, but all they ever were was friends. but woman 1 signed up to join the army, and she's being deployed in a few weeks. man 1's start-up is starting to take off. this isn't the right time for either of them to fall in love with the other... and yet they can't help it.

man 2 and toby saunders stole the show in high school after being declared prom kings. growing from puppy love to high school sweethearts, there had been bets about when they'd finally reveal they were dating. but when toby lost his mother and father in an accident shortly after graduation, all their plans went to hell. man 2 went to college, having received a full ride to harvard, but they swore they'd stay in touch. that didn't work out. but when toby ends up working in the same building as man 2, the feelings come back, more complicated than ever. they've changed so much and are in very different places; could it ever work out?

woman 2 and man 4 always moved in different circles. man 4 comes from money. a lot of money. he was seen as the disappointment of the family when he joined the police force instead of becoming a lawyer or a businessman like his family wanted. woman 2 has always had to steal for a living. but now, she's gotten really, really good at it. turning her skills to IT, she's a renowned and wanted hacker. when man 4 is put on her case, he'd never expect to encounter her by chance, and he'd certainly never expect to fall for her. but when he meets her, he has no clue who she really is, and she has no idea who he's looking for. but that doesn't stop them from falling for each other.

woman 3 and woman 4 have always been looking for someone just like them. someone who could listen to them talking about their obscure interests for hours, who likes the same food as them, who truly understands them. they've known each other all their life, and yet somehow looked right past each other. through chance, they meet and sparks fly. but woman 4 has never been in love with a woman before, and finds herself struggling to come to terms with that, especially because she's only getting over her ex-fiancΓ©.

Re: starcross'd

@iCat
okay. he probably won't be done until tomorrow, unfortunately, and apologize for my small absence. I am really, really looking forward to this.

Re: starcross'd

i've heard from one person apologising for the delay and their character is nearly finished, and i've spoken to one or two people who have said they'll get working on their character but don't seem to have made that much progress.

but valentine if you get your character done ASAP, we'll have two completed pairings and can work with that! i'll get talking to the others.

Re: starcross'd

Is everyone still here? o.o I've been gone for a bit and apologize for it been busy.

Re: starcross'd

@valentine; awesome!

@everyone; if you could get your characters in asap, that'd be awesome!

Re: starcross'd

hey cryptic, good to see you! I 100% know what you mean, it's so disheartening. I won't pressure you into taking on any more, i'm still poking around to see if i can find more people who are interested!

Re: starcross'd

I would like to reserve woman #1 with Hex #7B7BFF and FC: Magdalena Zalejska

I was thinking of taking two, but I'm trying to ease back into RPG again. It's hard to stick around when all your work amounts to little because the story gets nowhere. D: So for now. Just one. :) If you really need more charrys I shall take up another.

Re: starcross'd

absolutely! can’t wait to see her!

Re: starcross'd

Hey! could reserve woman 4 please ?
