The Comatose Kingdom

The Comatose Kingdom

0 INK

Protagonist-driven RP starring a dying girl that dreams of a Fantasy kingdom during a coma.

236 readers have visited The Comatose Kingdom since Closet Nerd created it.

Introduction

"It's not like dying is a big deal or anything. I mean, everyone knows they're going to die someday, whether you are 80 or 16 years old. I guess I didn't think I'd be the latter... It's not the worst thing in the world though, at least I'm not in pain, I'm not hallucinating and I'm not in a coma either! Yeah, I can beat cancer just fine!"

The story this time around is going to be about a teenage girl that's diagnosed with cancer and not too very long to live. As the quote above suggests, she is in a state of denial upon first receiving the news. When it finally dawns on her that her chances are incredibly slim she slips into a coma. The coma sends her to a high fantasy world a la Neverland or Wonderland. During the coma she will meet various characters that all represent a real person in her real life and she'll have to go through the processes of maturity (She's a teenager for a reason, you know) and mourning due to the cancer that looms over her.

One of the challenges I present with this RP will be to have a protagonist-driven story where the protagonist is not the GM's PC but rather the combined concept of all of the involved RPers. Hence why each character represents a person the protagonist knows. Because of this, all of you have equal stake in changing the way the main character behaves, what her backstory is and how she will grow through the experience. Clearly the Big Bad that is present in almost all High Fantasy stories is going to be the cancer here, where at the end our protagonist will either overcome or succumb. Various symptoms of her disease will most likely be represented by the evil minions of the Big Bad.

I'm leaving room for editing the intro post, I'd like some discussion before I make anything concrete or allow any characters to storm in.

(Please post in the OOC page if you want to discuss the goings on of the RP and NOT the chat. The chat is broken for me and I can't access it properly)

Re: The Comatose Kingdom

I've been thinking about this today, it reminds me of the story I wrote when I was younger. Such a simple and yet, beautiful idea.

I was trying to think what character I could create to symbolise a part of growing up, but decided I'd need to see what kind of person she was before I could do it. Was also thinking of the cancer and how that could be represented.

Maybe an ugly creature/male that gradually becomes more and more attractive. Could symbolise the disease taking over more and more. The idea being it develops and flourishes, and the more attractive this evil guy gets, the more compelled she feels to give in to him. Which would symbolise the cancer getting worse, and it seeming more and more simpler to give in?

I don't know! It sunny here and I've been drinking loads so my thoughts and imagination might make zero sense to everyone else !!!

Re: The Comatose Kingdom

This looks like we could be making something beautiful. I think Doe-Eyed-GIrl's second sentence sums my feelings towards this Rp perfectly. I would love to be a part of it.

Re: The Comatose Kingdom

This looks like a great idea!!! I would love to be apart of it.
