Princesses seem to be the only ones to ever get their happily ever afters. Their prince comes for them, rescues them from whatever disaster, whatever catastrophe has befallen them. Then they fall in love, get married, and live happily ever after. The end.

ImageNo. Not the end. In fact, that's just the beginning. And the princesses have a long, long way to go if they want their happily ever afters. The thing is though, they don't want their happily ever afters. They want to save the world from the very decievers who once fooled them. The princes.

The princes do not have the princesses' best interests in mind. They don't love them, they never have. What they want -- what they crave -- is power.

The princes are, indeed, very real. Cinderella, Snow White, Briar Rose, Rapunzel, and Belle are all real. Their respective princes decieved them, played the part of their savior, their lover just so that they could use the young women for their own purposes -- expanding their empires and taking over the world. And they will kill each one they feel unworthy of their new empire.

These five princes make up a society called the Crystal Knights. They each have a power in their name, and stand for making the world a better place. But their idea of a better world means mass killing one thousand times worse than the Holocaust we know of. Their idea of a better world will kill off almost all of the world's population, leaving only a select few.

When the princes revealed these plans to their wives, in hope they would join them, the princesses were horrified. The men assured the fine ladies that they had been chosen to live on, to help repopulate the world with more worthy beings. For each of their princesses also had a power that they knew of. That's why they were chosen.

The ladies could not bear the thought of such devastation, and with the help of the wizard Merlin, began to conspire against their wicked husbands and formed the Night Maidens, a society with the sole purpose of preventing the Crystal Knights from carrying through with their plans.

They pretended to go along with the plans of the Crystal Knights, to support them, even, so that they could learn of the plans. Indeed, the Knights were fooled, and even allowed their wives to drink from the same substance that had made they themselves immortal.

Everything went along just fine. The Knights were still in their planning stages, the Maidens were sabotaging from within, undetected. The princesses each gave birth to a child within the same five years. Belle's daughter was the eldest of all the young royals.

ImageWhen Belle's daughter turned thirteen, her husband called for her to bring his precious daughter and to stand before him. He explained that thirteen is the age that altered children are to display their powers. When he found that his daughter had no powers, he killed his daughter in anger.

The Maidens were slightly worried by this, but they kept their places next to their husbands. Belle didn't allow her prince to see her grief for her firstborn daughter, insisting that the child was useless to her in such state. For surely her lacking of powers was a fluke.

However, upon the thirteenth birthday of Cinderella's son, it became clear that he too lacked powers. She refused to bring him before her husband, pretending he was sick. That night, with the help of Merlin, she and the other princesses fled to save their children, Cinderella's son and Princess Rapunzel helping a pregnant Belle along.

The princesses took to the secret underground cavern that had served as their headquarters for years and placed their children with commoner families, insisting it would be safer this way. They waited for the Crystal Knights to make their move to come out of hiding, but the Knights never did.

Over the centries, the Maidens began weakening. While they stayed young and beautiful forever, they grew weary, and the Knights remained immobile. Knowing they couldn't just die, they consulted their dear friend Merlin, immortal as he was born the son of an angel and a mortal, one the matter, wondering who would guard the world in their stead even if they could die.

Merlin referred them to an ancient magic that would put them into a deep sleep, not unlike the one Briar Rose had been subjected to centries ago. When the Crystal Knights decided to make their move, he told them, he would awaken them.

The Maidens agreed to this, but Briar Rose brought up a vital point. She told Merlin that her body had been the same when she awakened, so even if they did awaken when the time came, their bodies would be in no condition to be of any help; they'd still be weary and sick.

ImageMerlin answered that there was a way to get this to work. When the time came, instead of awakening them in their own bodies, he'd fuse their spirits to that of another maiden with a story like their own and then awaken them. They'd awaken a part of the other girl, and the new girls would be granted with the the powers of the princess who entered their being. When it was over, he'd be able to seperate the melded souls and the princesses would go straight to Heaven. Desperate, the princesses agreed.

It has been another round of centries, and the Crystal Knights are stirring. Five girls with tragic pasts from around the world each recieve a letter inviting them to "The Night Institute for Young Women" in England. The catch? The school is not real. It is a ploy to assist Merlin in uniting the girls so that he can awake the princesses.

The young ladies are stunned by the story Merlin tells them, informing them that they must, essentially, save the entire world from the Crystal Knights. They agree, but are uncertain of their new powers.

Who will prevail?

Characters
First come, first serve. || To me, it's unfair to make people compete for a role of fun. I don't have it in my heart to tell people that someone else's CS is better than theirs, but that's just me.

Reserve in OOC. || No, not PM. OOC. That way, people will know if you already have asked for the role and we avoid two people asking for the same role.


Reservations last 72 hours. || WIP must be submitted within 48 hours to keep your slot. After those 48 hours are up, you'll have an additional 24 hours to complete CS.

Image
I'd prefer for you to keep these FCs. || However, if you HAVE to change it, just PM me and we'll talk, okay?

Doubling permitted. || This is, of course, assuming that you take one male and one female or that I give you special permission to take two of a single gender. In fact, I encourage doubling. Also, don't take a princess's spirit and her prince, either.

No Mary-Gary Sues. || Make your character creative and wellrounded while still keeping them realistic for their role.

CS is changeable. || As long as you include all required information, you may reorganize and embellish the character sheet to your liking.


Posting
No godmodding, powerplaying, or autohitting. || In other words, your character CAN be injured, and you CANNOT control other characters and know the thoughts of other charries.

Third person only. || I like first person, too, however third person is more suitable for roleplay.

The minimum per post is 400 words. || Honestly, that shouldn't be too hard. And please, don't post a novel each time that we all have to struggle to keep up with one person. Roleplay is a collaboration; please don't make yourself the driving force.

Image

Post once or twice a week per charrie, minimum. || I understand that life gets in the way sometimes; just PM me ahead of time.

Double check your posts. || Mistakes are allowed, but please put effort forth to make your post appear professional.

Please place your charrie's name at the top of your posts. || It just looks nicer, okay?


Out of Character
Use brackets when talking OOC in IC thread. || Examples are ((this)), [this], {this}, or ||this||.

Check back frequently. || Keep checking the OOC tab. Sometimes I leave information vital to success.

Be courteous. || It goes without saying, but no fighting OOC. If you have an issue with someone, PM me and I'll deal with it.

Make inquiries. || If you have a question, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm a nice person, kind of gulliblely so, so I definitely won't hold a grudge against you for hammering me with with questions. In fact, I do that to GMs all the time!

The password is needed to join. || And the password is your favorite fairy tale. (Mine is Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen)


Rating
Rating based on maturity level, not age. || If you are confident that you can handle my rating descriptions, then go for it!

There will be blood. || This really should go without saying, however when there is war, people are going to get hurt. Violence will certainly occur in this RP. (To kill off a person's charrie, confirm with the charrie's owner and myself beforehand.)

Stuff happens. || Yes, I realize that it's kind of males versus females, but remember that "Charming" can change his appearance. Who's to say that he couldn't pretend to be an ally to the Night Maidens. Just fade-to-black after the clothes come off.

Image
Freedom of speech. || Feel free to swear, just don't go overboard. cx

Raise your glasses. || There may be an occaisonal drinking scene with the Knights.

Uncomfortable? || Don't be afraid to speak up! Shoot me a PM and I promise we'll work out a compromise. :)


***Failure to coincide with the rules set out to keep everyone productive and having fun will result in a PM from me and a strike. Three strikes and you're out. I reserve the right to make exceptions where I deem appropriate.

Re: The Night Maidens

Just curious if you had seen my request for Rapunzel. Thought maybe it got missed since you responded to the posts before and after it.

Re: The Night Maidens

Hello! I would love to take the role of "Daring" FC: Jamie Campbell Bower. I would also take Belle if the person reserved doesn't claim it.

My favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast.

Re: The Night Maidens

Hello, I was wondering if I might reserve the Rapunzel character please?

~*My favorite fairytale has always been the retelling of beauty and the beast Beauty by Robin Mckinley*~

Re: The Night Maidens

Hello! Amazing idea for a roleplay, I must say. Would really love to join this one as the first RP on my new account. :)

Can I reserve Cinderella, please? As for my favorite fairytale, I never really was into them as a kid. I mostly favor the princess ones, of course!

EDIT: Oops, never mind. i didn't notice the updated list in this forum.

Re: The Night Maidens

No problem, I understand. <3

Re: The Night Maidens

I am so sorry, but I will unfortunately have to retract my reservation. I started working on my character but as I was working on her I realized I had lost the inspiration I had when I had made my reservation, I couldn't work on her much more after that. I truly am sorry and I wish you all the best for this roleplay.

Re: The Night Maidens

Oh gosh... I didn't even notice that when I was going through the face claims. o.o #Mindblown

Re: The Night Maidens

Double post because gotta go so fast
so sorry

Re: The Night Maidens

I just... I just noticed...

The character... with the powers to control ice and snow... has the last name... Hale... hail...

*mic-drop*

Re: The Night Maidens

I WOULD'VE BEEN THE EXACT SAME WAY!!!! o; I've always been an Idina Mentzel fan, so I loved Frozen before it even came out. cx

Re: The Night Maidens

I'm sitting here, glaring at my computer screen, silently mouthing:
"I can't make her like Elsa. I can't make her like Elsa. I caaaaaannnn't hgggggnnn..."

"Nooope that's too similar too Elsa."

"Yes, Elsa is fucking perfect, but I can't... no... shit."

Ugghhhh my love for Frozen is beginning to show.

Re: The Night Maidens

@Dumisa: Thank you! <3 I'll put her down for you!

Re: The Night Maidens

@Hermione: Hello! Nice to meet you. I was wondering if I could reserve the Britt Robertson FC, please?

My favorite fairy tale is indeed Cinderella. Haha.

Re: The Night Maidens

May I reserve Austin Butler||Open please?


-and my favorite fairy tale is The Princess And The Frog-

Re: The Night Maidens

@TheRealHermione: I don't mind. ^_^ It was my fault for rushing the OOC post without finishing the front page rules. Emmie definitely deserves the role more. Have fun guys~

Re: The Night Maidens

@Emmie_Hoeller: She's yours! ^^

@Starlight77: Thanks so much! ^^ I've been refining this plot for a while now. The reservation is yours!

Re: The Night Maidens

Eyyooo! This seems like a really awesome idea. Like, super awesome.
Where do people keep coming up with ideas like these... *rolls in a pile of fanfiction*

I would like to reserve Snow White's character. Thanks!

As for my favorite fairy tale... tbh, I've never been into fairy tales as much as I have with things like Greek mythology and the like. Though I have been playing A Wolf Among Us like a fool for the past week.

Re: The Night Maidens

@TnevdaNai: Hehe, well, I disn't really want Belle. cx
I'm sorry though, I can't give you a slot unless you read the rules. /).(\
