The Forever Train

The Forever Train

0 INK

A single train running through an endless tunnel, holding so many glorious, weird and wonderful passengers, some with no memory of how they got there, or even, where they are going...

906 readers have visited The Forever Train since Ruko created it.

Introduction

Image

You're on a train, how did you get here? One of the many stops it makes around the world perhaps, finding a strange train that needs no ticket for it knows not it's destination. Or maybe you simply awoke on the gently creaking carriage, with no clue how you got here, a train that seems to keep going through never ending tunnels of darkness with small flickering lights allowing you to squint into the darkness of who else is with you on this never ending journey. The train seems modern yet unkempt, light bulbs gone from the ceiling and fabric on seats that needs replacing. The carriage rocks and squeaks and lights flicker past the windows of the occasional light in the tunnel.
Some carriages are filled with people, laughing, talking. Others with animals, creatures, some behaved and others fighting in cramped compartments. Others are empty, carriages that go on for miles it seems that are left bare and silent, the occasional whisper drifting through the doors to unease anyone that dares sit in them.

This is a train with no destination, no stops and no starts, being that inhabit it are wonderful and colourful and from every location a man's mind could dream of, the carriages vary from posh seats and tables for dining, standing only carriages, ones that house compartments and beds for sleeping in and a kitchen, that always seems to have every food you could ever want within it's doors, to satisfy even the strangest of requests. Yet... No one has ever seen a chef, so best be making the meals yourself. This is a community on board here, how you interact with it is up to you and you alone.

What will you do?


(( If you want to listen to something to help get you into the frame of mind where this RP is set I pieced together this for people to listen to: http://soundcloud.com/the-birdruko/the-forever-train ))

Toggle Rules

I should hope these would be obvious but here are the rules:

1. Make your character within the limits, so no GodModing, no overly powerful people or gods or Mary Sues etc, PLEASE.

2. Fighting IS allowed on board the train, but please follow the battling rules, if you don't know them:
    [1] No Auto Hitting. Write it as if you're hoping to land a blow, not saying that you DO.
    [2]No auto kills, this should be obvious. Don't kill the other person's character without giving them a chance, ask the person politely and see if you can work something out OOC.

3. Keep everything roughly PG13, gore and strong language is allowed but please don't start making out on the train, thank you.

4. Magic is allowed in reasable amounts, please please don't go overboard, if you do I will inform you.

5. You can not leave the train, no matter what. No barging down walls, jumping out the window or anything. All RP is to be contained within the train at all times.

6. All species, creatures, humans are allowed on the train, including fan created characters. This means an original character that has been created within a world of a show, film book etc, you can not RP a ready made character from a show, film or book.

7. Max one characters per person, sorry.

8. Just be sensible and respect other people, even if your character is a dick don't take it too far, kay?

The gentle hum of the train had merely become background noise, shuffling feet and quiet mumbles of the other passengers fading in and out of hearing. Ruko shifted her head round, looking out from her spot under a seat, she was mostly tucked under, but her tail was just sticking out slightly, almost asking someone to trip over it. She was dopey, and half asleep but every now and then she'd lift an eye lid slightly, gazing out from the slit and then fidgeting before finding another comfortable position to sleep in. The carriage bumped violently suddenly, causing her head to hit on the seat above. "AARRRRCHHHA!"
She winced, wide awake now and grumpily swished her tail. She lay there, her tail moving less and less as the pain drifted away from her skull, looking at the floor, her unimpressed expression focused on the small flecks of dirt on the ground. She finally settled her head back on her paws, her tail curled round herself and her eyes finally closing once more. The hum of the train fading away back into the background of this moving prison.

Charlotte sat on one of the many worn-out seats on the train, she crossed one leg over the other and looked down, her eyes locked on the floor. It wasn't long until her mind drifted away, detaching herself from her surroundings when suddenly she felt the carriage jerk and a thud underneath her chair. She sat upright, shifted in her seat and looked down to check if Ruko was okay, after calming down she moved back into the position she was in before and drifted back off into a daydream.

Ruko grumbled in her doze, her head still sore. She flopped over to her side and pushed against the side of the carriage with her legs, sliding out from under the seat. She stood up on all fours and stretched, her back cracking. Ruko placed one paw up on the seat next to Charlotte before heaving herself on to the seat, she stood awkwardly next to her for a few seconds before placing her front paws over her legs and then flopping onto her lap. Ruko was a bit big for a lap though, and she was stretched across three seats, her tail up against the back of the end seat, curling against the ceiling.

Charlotte quickly became aware of something pressing down on her legs, she looked down realizing it was Ruko.
Smiling warmly, she ran her hand down Rukos back. After stroking Rukos back for some time, she leans down and nuzzles her gently before looking up and realizing she was being stared at by a few other passengers on the train.. Red in the face, she clears her throat, sits back up and gazes out the nearest window.

Re: [OOC] The Forever Train

Well since it accepts every type of character anyone could possibly think of and there's a slight back story if you want to discover it, it offers many possibilities. But it put it simply, yes, it is "Just a bunch of people interacting." But in a nice atmospheric environment I hope. c:

Re: [OOC] The Forever Train

Is there a specific plot, or is it just a bunch of people interacting?
