Introduction

Image
"We'll all return someday..."


Image
With a mighty lunge, the first hero plunged his blade into the glowing core of the Dirt. Incapacitated, the creature could do nothing as it wailed a piercing call that tore the rest of the heroes attention from their adversaries. A sudden force exploded from the heart of the Dirt, lying prone anything that once stood. A flash of blackness washed across the heroes' vision, then all was still. The first hero looked before him, a black scar lay upon the stone at his feet: A permanent marker of the Dirt's final resting place. And next awakening. The rest of the heroes looked around them, to find their Nemesis' had disappeared. The Fourth hero, the Mind, called out to the first hero through staggered breaths, a wound seeping from his side, "Is that it?" The first hero remained silent for a few moments, then collapsed to his back. "Yes... It is finished." A simultaneous sense of relief washed over the hall as the sound of bodies and armor clattering to the ground resonated off the marble walls. It felt as if an eternity had passed since their journey had started, and at last it was finished. The first hero, the Truth, sat up. He looked to his comrades. "Brothers, Sisters, lets us be gone of this foul place. We have many wounded and we are surrounded by darkness. We need time to rest our bodies. And our souls. For they have another long life ahead of them."


Six: The Heroes' Journey through Eternity -- Anonymous

Image

At the beginning of time, there were 6 Aspects of Existence born forth from the crucible of time.

The Truth, The Hope, The Body, The Mind, The Heart, The Spirit

Alongsize each of these Aspects, a SOUL was born as a vessel of these ideas. But as with every reaction, there is an equal... and Opposite reaction. So born was the 6 Aspects of Annihilation, as well as 6 souls to carry them.

The Dirt, The Doom, The Gore, The Dementia, The Despair, The Reality

As Life developed, these souls inhabited the primitive bodies in the primordial soup. Even in this form, they fought. The 6 Aspects of Annihilation sought to destroy life. The only thing keeping them from doing so was the repeated victory of the 6 Aspects of Existence.

This is where you come in.

When the bodies containing the 6 Aspects of Existence die, the souls are immediately reincarnated. These new bodies would be drawn together by unseen forces to once again combat the Aspects of Annihilation. Since the Aspects of annihilation were Destroyed instead of dying naturally, their souls must first recuperate.
You are a teenager with 5 close friends, all of which are the reincarnations of the 6 heroes. You are attending high school together, and your lives have been fairly normal until now. Then you're greeted by a strange man spouting about the fate of their universe. Will you answer the call of your destiny?

Daniel awoke with a start to the sudden realization he had been asleep in class. He wiped a bit of drool from his lip and glanced around the classroom, hoping no one had seen him. He sighed in relief to see that he had snuck in a whopping half hour nap while the class watched a recorded lecture. He slouched back in his desk, his eyelids heavy. He looked at all the disinterested faces. Jack, Raziya, Risuki, and Alexander were all feigning interest for the substitute teacher, but they were buried in their books or cell phones or their own la-la land. Arden, however, was furiously scrabbling down notes as if her life depended on it. Daniel shook his head and looked at the clock. Only 5 minutes until school got out and the gang could hang out. Daniel wondered which house they were actually gonna go to... They were still kids, however, and were inherently bad at planning. He sighed heavily and plopped his head on his desk, embracing his 5-minute torture.

Risuki yawned as she watched the clock tick, and tick, causing her to scowl at how slow the clock was going.She frowned and looked over at her friend, Daniel, who just woke up from his slumber.She took out her phone, and started to feel the emotions bubbling up in her chest.Risuki swore she heard the bell rang, when she stood up and almost walked out the door until her teacher spoke."Risuki, class is not over, may you please sit down." Her teacher said, in the most disappointing tone ever.Risuki blushed and sat down, sad, mad, confused, and embarrassed.She always did that, and her class mates were not so approving of her 'habit'.She sighed and looked out the window.

She soon got bored of all the trees outside, and looked around at her friends, all except one, who was listening to the teacher.Risuki felt horrible, as she kept getting stares from other kids in her class.All of them stared as if she was an alien, with purple colored skin.She looked at her hand, which was surprisingly what everyone was staring at.It had a huge blue dot on it."My hand.." She whispered, and looked around, to her friends."I c-colored it..Oops I forgot about that.." She lied, blushing.

Arden, valiantly ignoring the cramping pain in her wrist (despite being battle-hardened by hours of nighttime studying), kept writing in her half-neat half-messy shorthand-and-symbol-riddled notetaking style.. Still, the on-screen lecturer was speaking fast! And he kept jumping from topic A to topic B and back again to A, so there were plenty of color-coded arrows looping back to the original point. She mused for a second that her friends would probably need notes to understand her notes.

Distantly, she heard the teacher say something about Risuki and sitting down. She probably thought the bell rang again, and Arden made a mental note to research recurring auditory hallucinations, though the speed of her pencil never stopped. There was so much to do, and midterms weren't all that far away! And that wasn't even counting the history project, or individual class tests, or anything!

She sighed through her nose, refocusing as she copied down text from the screen. The school year was always really busy for her, juggling grades and extracurriculars and friends▬not that she minded, of course! But it would be nice if they took their own notes once in a while. They might catch something that she missed!

The video finally began to roll the credits, and Arden wrote the title down, so she could look it up again and fix up some of of the more fragmented parts of the notes. She blinked as the teacher flipped the lights back on, and pulled out her planner to write down tonight's homework assignment. She made a note in the corner to come to school early tomorrow, so she could borrow the printer and make copies of her fixed notes. But the bell was ringing, and now it was time to play with her friends.

Alexander Robb

Alex looked over at Daniel as he stirred, before shaking his head after he put it back on his desk. "You could at the very least try to be subtle about it." Alexander mutters under his breath as he looked around the classroom, trying to act as if paying attention to the recorded lecture. His attention immediately went to Risuki as she did her usual routine of thinking the bell is earlier then it is, and smiled and gave her a little wave to try comforting her from his desk. Drawing his attention back to his phone, he finished the last few cards of his new MtG deck and ordered a new controller for his Xbox before he realized the credits were rolling "Bout damn time, blasted lectures take an eternity and a half." He mutters again, putting his phone away and pretending to finish writing notes.

Shielding his eyes from the lights, he packs his things and walks over to Daniel, giving him a little nudge on the shoulder. "Danny, come on. Class is over, let's get out of here." He says with a smile before walking over to the others with a grin on his face "Man, that took forever, I say we go do something that won't make us think for awhile, eh?" He says with his traditional smile, ready to have a relaxing weekend of doing either fun stuff or nothing at all.

Something told Raziya that class was never going to end. With each ticking sound the clock made, it seemed to have no difference. Instead of actually paying attention to the lecture, like the teacher expected her to, she was really just staring at her watch. Tick. Tick. Tick. Tick. The watch's clicks were mocking her. She swore these were the longest five minutes in her life.

She pursed her lips; at this point she wasn't even trying to hide her impatience. Tick. Half way through the watch's next rotation, the teacher spoke out. Raziya, barely paying attention, nearly flinched-- a part of her thought that the teacher was calling her out. And, not surprisingly, she was just telling Risuki to sit down. Surely, Risuki must've thought she heard the bell again. Raziya flashed a small smile for support, before turning back to her watch.

Her smile grew as the second hand inched closer to the twelve. Unintentionally, she began to count down under her breath. Those sitting besides her could hear her murmur the numbers 3, 2 and 1, and as if on queue, the bell rang. Raziya, unable to help herself, shot out of her seat with a grin. The school day was over, and now it was time to hang out with her friends. She made her way on over to Daniel and Alex, as it seemed to be where her friends were starting to gather.

"Hello!" She had chimed, her smile never fading.

'The time for our meeting is coming soon. The details are blind to me, but I feel myself closer to you...'

Jack found himself in an empty black space that seemed to go on forever at the sound of a voice. He couldn't recognize it as anyone specific, but it was familiar to him. He knew it the way an infant would know their mother. It was just instinct, perhaps something more. "Who are you?" Jack questioned into the darkness. He seemed relatively calm for someone in such a place. In response, the darkness began spinning around him. It was hard to tell, but it was definitely moving. Or was it moving him? He could not understand it completely. But before he knew it, he was in front of a strange figure. It was shaped like a human, but it could hardly be identified as such. The being's frame was outlined in a white light just barely visible enough to see, and the inside of the figure was as black as the rest of this realm. Only... it was dotted with little white lights. Looking at it reminded Jack of the night sky.

'You will know... very shortly. Until then... Act with caution. We will meet soon.' And as the being finished speaking, it seemed to be sucked into itself, vanishing completely into the darkness. Somehow still calm, Jack felt himself drop. He had been standing on a sturdy surface not too long ago, but suddenly the world fell out from under him and slowly let him fall...


Jack's body jumped up at the sound of the bell. A single bead of sweat dropped down his face as he inspected the area around him. He was back in class, which was just ending. The students were gathering into little groups with their friends as the substitute began gathering their things together as well. Jack was really the only one still in a desk by the time he snapped back into reality. 'Was that a dream? As bizarre as it was, it felt... real...' With a soft sight, he rubbed the sleep out of his eyes and caught the sight of Raziya going over to Danny and Alex. He thanked whatever higher powers that may be that Raziya hadn't caught him sleeping in class. He avoided getting into any fights the whole day and he hadn't smoked at all. He was really trying to behave to avoid giving her a reason to scold him today. Breathing a sigh of relief, he calmly packed up his half-written notes and slung his bag over his shoulder, making a mental note to ask Arden for her notes later.

Standing up, he approached his gathering friends and wrapped an arm around Raziya's waist. Giving her a quick peck on the cheek and giving Alex a nod of acknowledgment, he looks down at Sleeping Beauty there and smirks. "Hey, guys. Still not up, eh? Maybe you should give him a little kiss, Alex. It works in the movies." He teased his best friend with a slightly-larger smirk upon his face now. "We have plans for today yet?"

"Oh shove it Jack, and get a room you two." Alex retorts jokingly, constantly and always giving Jack shit about doing PDA's with Raziya. He turns his attention back to Danny, nudging him harder "Hey Rip Van Wrinkle, get your ass up or we're leaving you here." He shakes his head, and begins to put Danny's things into his bag .

"As for what to do today, honestly I have no clue. We could go play video games at someone's house if nobody has any better ideas." Alex shrugs "Honestly, I dont care so long as it doesnt take as much thinking as that lecture." He sighs, glad to have it out of the way. "Hey Risuki, Arden! Come over here!" He calls out amongst the din to the other two as he finishes throwing Danny's things into his bag, which he promptly closes.

Risuki strided over to her friends, who all looked very happy.Just a pain of sadness hit her in the heart, when this reminded her of her mother."H-hey guys..." She mumbled out, starting to cry.She cried at the most random moments.But at least her friends understand her feelings."I vote we go to Jack's place.." She mumbled once again, sniffling.She felt like laying down on a bed, and crying until her eyes were dry, but for now she stuck with silent sniffling with her friends.First she looked over her friends, and forced a small smile, only to making it look like a cry for help.Risuki sighed."Can w-we just g-go?" She asked, in between sniffles.

Smiling at her friend’s antics, Arden packed her bag and walked over. Everything seemed to be OK, with everyone generally smiling, except for Risuka, who had tears running down her face. Arden awkwardly patted her hand on Risuka's arm (on the side with the cute blue dot) when she had reached her side, as a sort-of attempt at comfort. Emotions were complex, and she wished that she had some sort of way of seeing levels of serotonin and dopamine and melatonin, so she could inject them with the right mixture of hormones to make them feel better. She made another mental note to look up comfort method theories at home. If she couldn’t fix their exact hormonal makeups, then she could at least try to do something physically or verbally or however people did comforting.

"Is Danny still asleep?" she asked, tilting her head to try and get a peek at her friend's sleeping face. Now this was a kid in need of a good shot of adrenaline. Still, she wanted to take this opportunity to study what kind of face he made. People made so many different expressions, and she thought it was fascinating.

Her mission failed, however, so she opted for a sigh instead. "Just kick him until he wakes up or falls over," she told Alex. Despite her harsh words, she took Daniel's bag from Alex and slung it on her shoulder along with her own bag. “Jack’s place sounds pretty good, if he’s OK with that,” she said, agreeing with Risuki.

The sight of Risuki's tears were pretty much a deal-sealer for Jack. He would have been perfectly fine with everyone coming over to his house anyway, just because there was a lot of space and it was nice and quiet with his father at work. With a sigh, Jack relinquished his arm from Raziya and nodded at Arden. "Yeah, that's a good idea. I'll give him a good kick." Of the group, Danny was the person he was least close with and he felt no qualms whatsoever giving him a little bit of a rough awakening. Though she was talking to Alex, Jack decided to listen to Arden and lift his leg up and pressed it against Danny's arm. He gave it a couple of taps before kicking him with enough force to easily knock him out of his chair.

Turning around and not bothering to watch the sleepy boy's reaction, he stepped away. It was to avoid both Danny's potential reflex hits and to not have to look Raziya in the eye after doing that. With a soft breath, he shrugged. "We can all go to my house, sure. Plenty of space and dad loves you guys like his own. He won't care. It doesn't make much difference to me as long as we do something. I'm getting bored of sitting around at home alone all day. Hell, if it weren't for Razi, I'd go stir crazy..." Not that he expected the others to care about his little exposition. It was to be expected of the infamous "Tiny Titan" and "Monster Brute" to be a bit cold when inviting his friends over. It was nothing new and by this point, his friends should probably have understood that was just him trying to be nice. "Oh, Arden. Could I ask you for today's notes? I accidentally fell asleep and got immersed in some strange dream. I only made it through half of the notes. Sorry to be a burden." He was surprisingly studious for one with his reputation, though he only maintained average grades in everything...

"Oh, c'mon, just one more..." Daniel said to the monstrously large pizzaman that had been feeding him pieces of his cheesy flesh for what seemed like hours. All of a sudden, the pizzaman struck him, sending him hurdling back into his cruel, cheeseless reality. He felt himself tumble backwards and had a miniature heart attack, his pulse exploding as he scrambled to regain enough consciousness to catch himself.

He failed miserably.

He lay strewn on the floor, staring at the ceiling matter-of-factly. Daniel sighed and sat up to a comfortable position, looking up at all his buddies grouped around him. "Jack? That felt like a Jack kick." He wasn't very close with Jack. Sometimes he felt that he had some hostility towards him for some reason and disguised it as friendly rough-housing. Maybe he was looking too much into it. He scratched the back of his head and chuckled a bit, wiping his sleepy face. "I wasn't asleep, I swear..." He didn't have to make eye contact to know they weren't buying it. He stood with support from the wall and stretched his shoulders greedily, groaning loudly from exertion. He smacked his lips a couple times and glanced around everyone's faces. "Jack's house this time? I can smoke you guys at guitar hero again? Or maybe Alex and I can teach you how to play MtG?" Daniel slyly looked to Alex "I'm not gonna let you sneak in any more of your token bullshit, Trostani is a bitch!" He'd jab Alex's ribs playfully, taking enjoyment from the obvious confusion regarding terminology the rest of the group had.

He met Risuki's puffy eyes, and his heart dropped a bit. Daniel tended to not be super emotional, but something about her vulnerability had taken a cozy reservation for two in his heart. He put his hand on the small of her back and quietly took her a step away from the circle. "Hey, you okay?" He said. Daniel was accustomed to her emotions, but he figured she could still use support.

Risuki looked up at all of her friends who were trying to comfort her.She sighed, and somehow stopped crying."I just looked at you guys, and it reminded me of my mom.." Risuki said, this time smiling with her heart."I just miss my mom.." Risuki sighed, looking up again, and rubbing her arm that Arden had been holding."Can we go to Jack's now?I'm so tired~!" She said, and her mood changed to being happy.

"How about lets go get some food?I just want a salad." She said, trying to cover up the fact that she was starving.She hadn't ate all day, only because of one thing, anorexia.It hit her back when she was 16, and people started to call her 'fat'.Since then she still hasn't stopped dieting, and is smaller than a stick."I'm not that hungry.." She lied, and rubbed the back of her neck.

By the time everyone was awake and happy, as was Raziya. She was ready to leave this school and head on home as much as the next guy. In fact, she was quite pleased at how she had no reason to get on Jack's case today. No fights... no smoking... "Oh, Arden. Could I ask you for today's notes? I accidentally fell asleep and got immersed in some strange dream. I only made it through half of the notes. Sorry to be a burden."

"Well, that's a new one... You feel asleep in class?" Raziya found herself murmuring. Though halfway through her thought process, she realized today that she wasn't any better. All she did this class was stare at her watch and beg for it to go faster. Sleeping would've been a nice touch to her day. In fact, halfway through she was tempted to... Maybe she shouldn't get on his case. Not today. "Mpmh... never mind."

"Anyway, let's go! The faster the better. I vote Jack's house; I'm sure his Dad wouldn't mind us getting some food there. If not, we can always get seafood or something. I love clams... but it's whatever you guys want. I couldn't care less," She bellowed, smiling. "Also, Risuki... Eat something, okay? I don't want you starving on me!"

Arden smiled at Jack.

“Sure! I’ll give you and everyone else copies of my notes tomorrow once I watch the lecture again and finish them, and copy them in the morning. Can I look at your notes tomorrow, too?” She paused then. He had apologized for being a burden, and normally she would agree (it was extra work to make sure her notes were legible and to copy them in the morning, although she was used to it and didn’t mind much at all, since it was for her friends) but last night she had started reading a book on etiquette and it had informed her that when people apologized for silly things like that, she should reassure them and say that they weren't burdens. But it also stressed the importance of being truthful to friends. So...truth? Politeness? Which one was correct in this situation?

After too long of a pause (pauses between questions and answers should be from 1/2 a second to 3 seconds long, from what she had observed), she decided to try to reassure Jack. "I-It's fine," she said a bit too quickly. "Y-You're not a burden to me a-at all!”



I’M SUCH A TERRIBLE LIAR! she thought, making another mental note to look up the theory of lying. If it’s like this, if it’s like this, then-!

Shifting Danny’s bag to get to her own, she pulled out her smartphone and started to frantically write down what she had to look up when she got home, ignoring Danny’s reentrance into the world of the living, as well as Risuki’s and Raziya’s remarks about food with a dark gloomy air around her. Study! I need to study people in order to keep my friends!

Alexander Robb

"I agree, lets get outta here." Alex says as he playfully smacks Danny in the arm "Ah quit your belly-aching Mr. Esper Control, if anyone here has a bullshit deck its you!" He jokes as he looks over at Risuki "Come on Risuki, Ill cook us all up a nice meal when we get to Jack's, alright?" He says with his infectve smile as he throws his bag over his shoulder.

Alex has always had a major crush on Risuki, and out of dumb luck and Jack keeping his mouth shut (shocking), he's somehow kept it quiet since the day they met. However, that was going to change today. Alright Alex, today's the big day. There's no chickening out this time, this time you finally admit yourself to Risuki and ask her out! He thought to himself as the others got their things.

"Alright, enough screwing around guys, the longer we stay here the less time we have to have fun." Alex says, as he heads for the door.

Jack nodded at Raziya, almost apologetically. "Yeah, I did. I wasn't even feeling tired, either. That's the strange part..." He seemed rather confused by it, maybe a bit more confused than he should have been. He scolded himself mentally for being so childish about it, but he couldn't shake the dream. It was so strange, so vivid. Was something going to happen, or was Jack just allowing a dream to get to him? "It, uh, won't happen again, Razi. Sorry." She didn't scold him, which was absolutely bizarre to him, but he wasn't about to ask for a scolding either.

Turning to address Arden now, he smiled in thanks. "You're the best, Arden. I'll be sure to give you what I have some other time. I doubt you missed anything with how studious you are, but better safe than sorry." It was rare that Jack every got anything down that Arden didn't. In fact, even with how much attention Jack paid to his studies, Arden always seemed to one-up him. It wasn't surprising with how she always had her nose in a book, but Jack considered her an intellectual rival of sorts. An unattainable goal. That was just one of a few reasons why he liked having her around.

Now addressing everyone, he shrugs. "I don't mind if you want to come to my house today. There's room for sure." He wrapped his arm around Raziya's waist again, no longer needing to kick or prod anyone, and started walking out the room. "I'm done with school for the day anyway. Forget this... And if you're making food, Alex, you better be sharing with the rest of the class." Turning to face Raziya, he shook his head. "No clams, though. Not after the last incident. Never again after that..." He shivered in recollection of the great seafood date of 2014. An incident he never wanted to relive. So many clams... so... many... clams...

"A-Anyway, I'm going home now. Come with me now or forever wait outside my door with your puppy eyes begging to get in." And with that said, he left without the main group. They could catch up with him and Raziya if they wanted to hang out. It wasn't to be mean that he did this, but to actually get them moving.

Risuki nodded at everyone telling her to eat, though she really didn't want to. Risuki put on her coat, scarf, and mittens, and started to catch up with Jack and Raziya."I promise i'll eat something.." She said, taking off her right mitten and putting up her pinkie, resembling a pinkie promise.Risuki slipped back on her mitten, and watched as the other part of the group got smaller as Jack, Raziya, and her, walked away."hey but Jack, seafood is plan B." Risuki chuckled as she made a 'B' with her two hands.

Risuki felt much better now that school was over, and she wasn't sad and embarrassed any more. When Jack and the guys joked around it made her feel happy, and bubbly, like she had nothing to worry about.

"No clams, though. Not after the last incident. Never again after that..." Jack had shivered, most likely recalling that one date they had not too long ago... While Jack shivered, Raziya couldn't help but grin. "What do you mean, no clams? We need more clams! There weren't even enough last time."

With a chuckle, Raziya began walking toward the door with Jack. As Risuki caught up with Jack and herself, her smile grew. These were the best times; when she was with her friends. She always wanted to savor moments like these, because you never know when things are going to change. At least, that's what she believed. "Hey but Jack, seafood is plan B."

At this point, Raziya didn't think her grin could get any bigger, but when Risuki spoke, it did. "You know..." Raziya began. "Maybe we should make seafood plan A, eh guys? Who doesn't like seafood? I mean, c'mon!" She let out yet another chuckle as the three of them reached the door, Alex already there. She looked back at Arden and Daniel, teasing, "Hey! You guys coming, or are you two falling asleep?" She opened the door as if she were about to leave, still smiling.

“Yeah!” Arden grinned, relieved that Jack didn’t seem to be upset about her several blunders. She actually looked up to him, how well he was able to operate in the social realm that he didn’t have to count the seconds in conversational pauses or debate what next to say. It seemed to come so naturally to him, especially with his super-mature personality. She looked up to all of her friends, actually. They were all really comfortable with each other, with their families, and even with strangers. She often depended on them for help when it came to things like that, which she was really thankful for! So helping them out with their academics was nothing.

She giggled at Jack’s horrified expression (and secretly took a picture to print out later), as well as Risuki and Raziya’s reactions. The clam incident...like many of the incidents that one or more of the members of the little friendship circle had declared to be unmentionable forever, it had started off innocuously but exploded. With so many exuberant people in a group, she supposed incidents like these were unavoidable...maybe? She’d have to figure it out later by carefully documenting them and figuring out if they really were ‘avoidable’ or not.

“Yeah, we’re coming! And if we’re having seafood, we have to have some sort of crab meat, too!” she told Raziya, before turning back to Daniel and giving him another light kick in the shin. Not because she disliked him or wasn’t close to him, but just because it seemed like an effective way of getting him to move. “C’mon, let’s go before they really do leave us behind.” She waited for a bit, and seeing that the effectiveness of the kick had gone down, opted for grabbing one of his sleeves and pulling. “Daniieeeel! Hurry up before I-I-I start reading your most embarrassing notebook out loud! I have your backpack, so don’t think I’m lying! And I’ll use the school’s intercom, you know, and everyone who hasn’t gone home yet is gonna hear all of the weird things you've written down!”

Re: The Dirt

Umm... Hey.
If any of you guys are still subscribed to the OOC and see this message... I'm back.
If you care, you can PM me for details about my uh... Unexpected departure. Sorry for killing the roleplay :/
I was somewhere far away from technology for the past couple months.

Re: The Dirt

So are we declaring this one dead? I'd really rather not if we can avoid it, but the owner of the RP seems... inactive. We're all waiting on Nihilist.

Re: The Dirt

I honestly have no idea what to post, since Alex is already far outside the door...

Re: The Dirt

Um... *Poke*

Hate to ask again, but is anyone posting soon...?

Re: The Dirt

I'm typing my post today~ Sorry guys, I had so much school work, and I was really over whelmed.

Re: The Dirt

Okay, I think I'm gonna write a rule that says something about if no one has posted for 48 hours, it's anyone's chance to post, and the other people just kinda "Lose their turn"? How does that sound? Also, I'm posting in the next few minutes, I'm the savior we need. <3

Re: The Dirt

Same here, but since there's only been two people that posted after me, I thought that I should wait...(^-^")

Re: The Dirt

Yes, please keep this going. My hype for this was so real ;_;

Re: The Dirt

Uh... anyone posting soon? I would, but I figured I'd wait for a few more posts before posting myself.

Re: The Dirt

No orgies!Got ittt~ They might kiss, but that's about it.. Cx

Re: The Dirt

>No orgies
I'm out. Layta.
I completely agree.

Re: The Dirt

So mad. The site was down when I went to post last night, and I fell asleep waiting xC

I'm posting tonight if the site allows, I promise. Also. I need to make rules for this RP cx NO RAMPANT ORGIES YOU GUYS OKAY

Re: The Dirt

Just a head's up, me and Gaunt characters are going to have a bit of a romantic relationship. Our charcters will communicate with this more at Jack's house. ( which I presume were going to. )

Tee hee it's Alexander and Risukii~! ♥|

Re: The Dirt

I'm sneaking a post from work I don't get off till 10:30 cst I'll post around 11 cst

Re: The Dirt

Oh, for the record, I wanted to point something out. Jack is the youngest of 5 kids and her older brothers are all moved out and stuff. So there's spare room and empty rooms at his place. So in the chance that any characters ever needed to run away in the past or just escape, Jack's would always be open to your characters. He's that kind of guy and stuff. So yeah. Jack's could be a regular place for you guys. I:

Re: The Dirt
