Mr. Torrent was sitting down to his evening coffee and the day’s newspaper much as he did every day after dinner. His routine never wavered being a proper gentleman and set in his ways. He could hear the clinking of dishes coming from the kitchen, his wife and daughter doing their job, a proper place for women to be in his mind. It was getting to the point where he should have a bit more light to be reading, he got up from his seat and pulled open the shades wanting to use what was left of dusk suns light being much to frugal of a man to turn on the lamp behind his chair. That’s when he glanced up at the sky an odd sight played before him all manner of colors danced in the sky. This was not normal, this was not proper....

"Delvinia come and look at this" he called to the kitchen.

Mrs. Torrent was standing at the sink with her hands in warm, soapy water Casio standing next to her meekly drying neither one of them speaking just dutifully going about their task wanting nothing more than to get it done quickly so they could go on with their lives. It was then she heard her husband call for her from the study...

"Casio could you be a dear and finish this sink full up while I attend to your father" she said in a soft tone with a hint of resentment for having been pulled away from the chore she was doing. Her daughter nodded and took her mother's place at the sink.


Casio Torrent


Casio stood at the sink after her mother had went to follow her father's beck and call. She quietly hummed to herself as she washed each dish and set it into the sink beside the one filled with water. When she has filled it to the point where she needed to rinse to give herself more room to finish off the rest in her sink she reached over to turn the faucet expecting clean clear water to spill of the soapy ones she had set to rinse. But nothing happened, not even a clank of air in the pipes... just nothing.

"This is certainly odd, why isn't the water coming out?" she questioned to no one in particular.

She knew better then to think that the water bill hadn't been paid and simply the houses main water valve had been shut off by the water company. No her father was a wealthy, proper and precise man her would never let anything as dreadful as an unpaid bill happen. The only conclusion she could deduce is that the faucet was broken; Casio pulled her hands from the water and dried them on a tea towel as she made her way to the study to inform her parents of problem.

She knew her father would surely give her a tongue lashing for being so foolish and perhaps even blaming her for the broken faucet. But at this point she didn't have a choice it was that or not finish the dishes, and that would make the situation even worse because if there was one thing Anthros Torrent hated was an undone chore. She quietly entered the study not wanting to barge in on her parent’s conversation whatever it may be.

"Mama... Papa... something is wrong with the faucet in the kitchen. I can’t get the water to come out" her quiet, mousy tone of voice echoed through the room eerily.

Expecting her father to spin around on his heal and begin to scold her she looked down at the floor shamefully. But the entourage of curses and hurtful words did not follow in fact not a word was spoken nothing more than an eerie silence and her parents continued looking out the study window to the sky above.

After a moment and still nothing Casio looked up from the spot she was staring at on the floor.

"Mama... Papa...?" she walked slowly over to them and then slowly reached up and nudged her father's shoulder.

He didn't move so she nudged her mother, and got the same response.

"It's like they've been frozen..." she said as she backed away from them in fear, Casio turned and ran upstairs to her bedroom.

Throwing the curtains aside from her own bedroom window looking out, there were ribbons in the sky that reminded her of the northern lights. She could see people down in the street looking up and like her parents still and silent.

"What is going on... it's like time has... stopped. But why am I not like everyone else?" her thoughts turned to Knack her ferret who was sleeping in his cage in the corner of her bedroom.

Casio knelt down in front of the cage "Knack... come here boy" she said.

In a little cloth hammock a tan colored ferret stretched and yawned after he was called, he slipped from his spot and came trouncing through the cage to Casio. She picked him giving a sigh of relief that her best friend had not been affected, and then gently clutched him to her as tears began to well up in her eyes.

"What am I going to do? Everyone has stopped" she cried.

After an hour or so of being emotionally distraught and crying in her bed, Casio decided to venture outside. A her school bag slung over her shoulder and Knack sitting wrapped around her neck she closed the door to her home behind her. Glancing in at her parents she worried what might happen to them while she was gone.

"I have to find someone who can help, perhaps there is someone out there like me and maybe can tell me what this mess is all about" she adjusted the bag and started walking down the street.

Casio walked down the street it was so odd walking past people and cars frozen at a certain moments in time. To lovers on a bench caught in mid kiss, a fender bender with the two drivers arguing in each other faces, it was all like looking at one large living, three dimensional, portrait of the world that Casio could maneuver through. Everything seemed so surreal, like she was in a bad dream that she could not wake from.

Casio decided to cut through an alley that connected her neighborhood to another.

"Surely I'm not the only one like this" the sudden sound of Casio's voice made Knack stir from his nap and he skittered down her side to the ground below. She turned and looked down at him "Stay close to me Knack, I don't think we have to worry too much about you getting run over or anything but I don't want you to get too far ahead" the nervousness in her tone made her sound like a lost child.

The alley was full of recycle bins filed with garbage giving the alley the smell of rotten food and God knows what else people put into the trash. Not exactly the most pleasant of place, all sorts of smells accosting her senses made Casio cover her nose and mouth in an attempt to keep herself from vomiting.

"Maybe this was a bad idea obviously its garbage day in this neighborhood, lucky me" it was then Casio stepped out of the alley and ran right into someone. The pair was almost knocked to the ground...

"I'm so sorry I didn't mean to run into you, it's just I'm so nervous because of all the crazy things going on' apologies spewed from her Casio like an over flowing cup. After she adjusted her glasses on her face again she realized that this person she had run into must have been moving as well, because he didn't fall over when she walked into him.

As information processed through her mind, the guys silver hair, thin and pale, Casio was sure she had seen him before somewhere.

"I'm not just seeing things am I you're moving too right?" she said as Knack climbed up onto her shoulder again. It was then it dawned on her and she remembered where she had seen him before. “I think we go to school together" she thought out loud hoping he would respond.

Rubix Mello

Walking seemed to take three times as long in a still world. Though things were so very different, and it was very interesting, Rubix would not like the planet to remain like this forever. The silence kind of creeped him out and the lack of drama was dull. He wondered if this really would last forever, or if it could restart at any time soon. It was something he was planning to look into as soon as he had the chance, but first he needed to see if he really was alone...

The town centre was in view now, the crowded streets filled with hundreds of people but yet felt so deserted and dead. Rubix dodged everybody, careful not to touch them as though they were dead rotting corpses locked in place like sleeping horses. Meanwhile Jam the genderless cat clung to his jacket with ease, claws not far from sinking into Rubix's flesh. The silver haired youth found himself wandering into a store and exiting with a jar of jam and a energy drink. Feeling guilty he left a small amount of money on the counter. Even if time had stopped, things were still the same just paused...

He sipped at his can as he sat on a bench, glaring up at the frozen but multicoloured sky above. What the hell were them ribbon like things? He was sure he could remember picking up a few of his father documents as a child and seeing a diagram of strands of colours circling the planets. Rubix recalled his Father yelling and snatching them off him as soon as he saw. Could this be a link?

Rubix got up, and decided to head towards high ground where he could hopefully see all the movement in the area. It seemed like a plan until it seemed he did not have to go looking for movement. It found him. SMACK. "Yawweeeohh!" Screeched his cat Jam as it pounced from his shoulder onto the ground, hissing furiously at his "Attacker". Rubix looked up meeting eyes with a cute brunette girl with small rounded glasses. She looked well presented and intelligent; her voice was also soft like feathers....

Then suddenly his pale cheeks began to blush like a freaking anime and he stammered trying to get his worlds out.

"O..oh H..hell..llo...Hello...Um yeah...I guess not everyone’s frozen then.." He stuttered more to himself than her. He tried his best to cool his cheeks but it took quite a while before he changed back to his normal skin tone. "Yeah...I think I have seen you around school...You’re from the Torrent family right?"

Then suddenly...

Ear splitting laughter. Some one else was moving near by

"HELLO! WHERE ARE YOU! DO YOU KNOW WHATS HAPPENED!?" The boy called out. A unappreciated yowl from his fur ball of a cat sounded at his ankles. "Hello!...." He called once again, before falling silent, waiting hopefully for a responce. Rubix then listened more carefully. Barking. Someone had a dog and it was barking. It seemed like so far only Humans and animals that were connected could move...Someone else?

Suddenly, Ralph stopped barking and all seemed silent as Ariana looked at him. “What is it, boy?” She said; her dark eyes watched him as he sniffed in the air and went around in circles. At first, she thought it was Ralph being his idiotic self before he stopped and let out a low rumbling growl and headed straight; this growl she knew specifically for Ralph. It was a growl that you shouldn’t forget the meaning of- cats.

Ariana’s thoughts rushed to her head, though, only one seemed to surface to the top; what if there was a cat that was also frozen? Would Ralph really attack a cat that wasn’t moving? Of course he would. Within a few seconds of silent thought, Ariana charged after Ralph in full speed. “Ralph! Come back here!” She yelled, her mouth suddenly becoming parched.

Despite Ariana’s calls, Ralph did not cease his rambunctious running and growling; or, until Airana caught him. Her hands barely grabbed onto his tail, causing Ralph to let out a loud, high pitched yelp. She could feel her anger rise up in her as she pulled the dog near her and grabbed onto his collar; Ralph knowing that he was going to get disciplined harshly.

“You damned dog!” Ariana growled, already knowing what she was about to yell next. “You’re lucky I ca-“
The sound of yelling in the distance caught her ears, yet her grip on the now whining and jerking Ralph would not loosen. “People…?” She whispered, now standing up and nearly dragging Ralph up along with her. Excitement filled Ariana’s lungs before she nearly jumped in joy; just now remembering she has a dog in her hands.

“Listen up pooch,” She began; looking down at him with beady eyes. “No more running off, got it?” Ralph looked at her in an apologetic way and when she released him, he ran behind her, as if he was saying, ‘You go first from now on.’, and so, she did.

“Hello!?” She screamed back, walking quicker than before as she neared more and more figures standing, yet not moving. Ariana looked around, at all the faces as she heard more voices a head of her. As she neared the voices, she could pick out a few moving bodies; two; three; or was it four?

“Hello!” She repeated, now able to see a white haired boy, an angelic looking girl and two others whom she couldn’t yet see, but hopefully thought was there and not more frozen people; and then, cats. Ariana turned towards Ralph, who was eying the cat who had curled up at the bottom of the boy’s ankles. “Ralph…” Ariana’s voice was harsh, but reassuring as Ralph looked at her once more.

“Heal.” Ariana looked back up and raised her hand, with a slight smile and a sigh of relief; she spoke once more, “Hi! Thank God I’m not the only one.”

(I believe everyone is either with, or near Rubix and Casio. ^^ or at least I hope. ^^; )

(Buuuhhh I'm going to have to post. Tiny post then I'll wait for LostSoul to post.)

Rubix Mello
There was no reply to his screams, but he was certain the person who the laugh belonged to must have heard him. Maybe they just didn’t want to socialize. Which in Rubix’s opioion was kind of strange?

"Hello!?"

A beautifully unique looking red haired girl came into view with a large drooling dog following at her ankles. The white haired youth kind of wanted to laugh at the sight of the pair, but the fact that the animal and its master had such a bond made it more applaud worthy than laughable. "Hello there," He said, trying to keep his voice calm, even though that was his natural tone anyway. At least she didn’t pounce into him like the glasses girl did. "Yeah, I sure do know the feeling..."

The girl warned her dog away from Jam. Like it matter anyway, the feline had other plans. It wandered up to the large sob-a-dob and began nudging at its paws with his snout and whiskers. “Jam! I’m sure he doesn’t want to play...why can’t you just act like your bloody suppose to!”

(Im sooo sorry guys that I haven't posted it got crazy and I ended up at a funeral this week, Im gonna try to catch up thank you guys for being so patient and not totally blowing up the rolplay with posts)

Casio smiled, "Yes my names Casio" it was then her eyes went wide at the sound of a creepy laugh. It was a little unsettling for her but then she heard voices yelling that they were coming. An excited and relieved expression crossed her face at the fact there were other's like she and Rubix, Casio was beginning to think that perhaps she and he were the only ones the sound of foot steps padding up to the pair said other wise.

A red haired girl came around the corner with a rather large dog at her side, this made Casio swallow her father had never allowed her around dogs saying there were too "dangerous" an animal to keep. Knack sat up on his back legs slightly with a curious tilt of his head at the large drooling thing that had just rounded the corner.

"It's good to see other people" Casio breathed a sigh as the girl healed the dog next to her. She couldn't help but internally chuckle at Rubix's feline companion's show of no fear as the cat actually tried to play with the dog. "Your cat seems to like dogs, Rubix" she said with a smile.

((Dude, foreal, my job wants to like...consume my soul. It's great for money, not so much for sleep or socializing or writing...blehh. I sowwies. v.v))

Moira's breath got caught in her throat for a split second as she finally came up to the young man she'd been hollering back and forth with. He looked at her questionably for a second before looking down and smiling at her babies.

"Either you are Moira, or there are a lot of people running around the streets at the moment."
"What are their names?"


Moira grinned as she squatted down, pushing her babes closer to Henry.

"Their names are Mello and Marsha. Marsha's the unlucky, b!tchy black one while Mello is the mischievous but sweet white one."
She gave her two babes kisses before letting Henry pet them.
Swiping a piece of hair behind her left ear, she looked up to Henry and smiled.
"And to answer your other question, yes, I'm Moira. Moira Noridan. Definitely gotta say you don't look how I pictured you to look. You're very....ordinary. But...at the same time, you have a completely different feel to you. Your features, your eyes mostly-very charming and mysterious."

Moira wiped her hands on her pants and stood, giving a quick look around behind her.
Turning her attention back to Henry, she nodded as he stated the bird's names.
"Sherlock and Watson, eh....Cute." She grinned, but he grin was cut short.
"Oh geez, what about that other voice? It sounded like it came from where you were. Let's get back there and find the person."

"Oh sh!t! You're right!" Moira quickly grabbed up Mello and Marsha and looked back to Henry, holding out her hand.
"Think you can keep up with a few cool cats like us?" She grinned at him, ready to run again towards the other voice they had heard.

Ralph watched the cat come near him, and instantly, his spinal fur flared up as his tail bushed up; looking similar to a cat himself. Ariana watched with dull eyes, knowing that Ralph won’t do harm unless she gave him permission- or so she’d hope at least. Despite his little growls that escaped his mouth, all of Ralph’s dignity as a dog was lost as the cat touched him; he let out a high pitched whine before backing up, falling on his butt as he tried to get away.

Ariana raised her eyebrows at him, wondering why he was acting like a baby; usually, Ralph would just turn and try to stay away with as much elegant and poise a half wit, slobbery dog can- instead, the dog was flopping all over the place as it trailed off towards the opposite side of Ariana; as if she’d protect him.

“Uh, anyways; I’m glad you guys are here. I’m Ariana!” She introduced herself, as she watched the two. Ralph looked around, now regaining whatever poise he’d lost, and looked quite serious as he sniffed around the area, nearly leaving the group, but not getting out of sight.

(Its alright. Schools been snapping at my ankles too. -.-)
Rubix Mello

"Your cat seems to like dogs, Rubix"


At the sound of such a comment from Casio, the boy raised a silver eyebrow. "No, Jam is just stupid..." Rubix said in a very cold but somewhat amused tone. He watched as the feline continued to nuzzle the dog, who at first seemed rather displeased and aggressive towards the creature, before suddenly he recoiled whining loudly. "Oh don't you worry about that thing boy, feel free to chomp of its head, I don’t think it would notice it’s just that dopey..." He said, directed at the dog of course.

As the canine began wandering elsewhere, Jam just sat a few meters away from him, making yowling noises that were suppose to resemble meows repeatedly. Rubix ignored the 'genderless' creatures sounds, and contuined his convosation. "My names Rubix Mello, of course Casio here," He wandered a hand in the naive girls direction, somewhat semi introducing her. He wondered if it was rude to do such a thing or not. Well it was too late now, but he hoped she did not view him as a attention scooping dick. "-Already knew that. It’s nice to meet you both, and yeah your right, its great knowing your not alone here. By the way Ariana, that laughter a moment ago didn’t belong to you did it? Do you know who it was?..."

The youth sighed, looking towards the colourful sky above. What do I do now? I have people? Do we look for information? But where? And what can bunch of normal kids like us do...?

The answer was. Nothing. They were the most useless peices of crap. They could not change anything. In fact, he was sure nobody even had a clue what was going on.

He was starting to reconsider his theory of being chosen.

Ariana smiled slightly as the two introduced themselves- or at least Rubix did the introducing. She could tell that he felt the same as she did in this situation- useless. She didn’t want to think that though; all Ariana could do now was chalk up the moment to something that happened all the time- right? It couldn’t be the first time this happened; she hoped that it was something that’d fade within twenty four hours and it’d just be their secret.

"-Already knew that. It’s nice to meet you both, and yeah your right, its great knowing your not alone here. By the way Ariana, that laughter a moment ago didn’t belong to you did it? Do you know who it was?..."
Ariana looked at them; wasn’t it them who produced the laugh? She slightly shook her head at both, the question and the idea as she thought it through more carefully now. Who’d laugh at something in this situation; or at least, who’d laugh at this situation now? Ariana allowed her imagination get the best of her as she began to condone to the fact that it had ran wild.

“Maybe we somehow entered another dimension; one where no time exists.” She said out loud, mostly to herself. Ariana looked at the two, now a bit embarrassed at what she had just said. “Maybe it’s better if we tried to think of the last place we were at?” Now she was speaking to the others, almost as if she was reconsidering her ridiculous idea; as if it had some sort of possibility in logic for it to start happening.

She smiled nervously, trying to ease whatever tension. “So, what do we do now?” Ariana said, now returning whatever tension she just took away. Meanwhile, Ralph was still snooping around, his nose to the ground as he looked back over at the group, sitting a ways away; his eyes not leaving the cat until he panned it over to the white ferret, almost wondering what kind of squirrel or cat it was.

Casio sighed she thought that maybe Ariana knew what was going on it was hard for her to know what to do she was used to being told every little move to make. So when Rubix introduced her she just nodded in agreement with his statement.

"Perhaps we should look to see if there are other's like... us" her voice trailed off when she realized she suggested something, she looked down at the ground blushing. "I'm sorry I shouldn't have said anything", she said in a mousy tone of voice. She always felt bad about taking initiative, if she had made a comment like that in the presence of her father he would have scolded her for sure.

She moved closer to Rubix him being the only person she had any idea who they were. She was glad he wasn't frozen, Casio surely would have gone into a panic if she didn't know anyone.

(I think we should really get this RP started up now :3)

Rubix Mello


The silver haired boy listened to Ariana's idea with a thought full expression. "Another dimension eh? But this is exactly the same as before just completely frozen? Unless it’s a parallel dimension...Being honest your theory is a little unrealistic, but interesting and a theory none the less." He paused smiling softly, he was glad someone else was thinking the situation through. "I wondered if everyone who could move were kind of selected, like if it was genetic or something to do with your blood type or IQ level...But I now think it’s just random, but I guess we will find out when we find more people..." Rubix explained. "When I first realized time had stopped, I just woke up after a nap, looked outside and there were them lights...What are they anyway?...They look like strands or Ribbons..."

Rubix blinked sharply a few times at Casio’s response to herself suggesting something. He didn’t understand, she acted like she was not entitled to words. "Why should you have not have said anything? I don’t understand it was a perfect idea and it’s what we will do..." He explained in a quiet gentle voice, a soft smile growing on his lips which was directed at her. The brunette girl then shuffled closer towards him, kind of like a child did when they were afraid. Rubix couldn’t help but laugh lightly, but it felt nice feeling like he was protecting someone.

"Shall we do that then? Shall we keep calling out till someone comes?"

Ariana mustered a leveled smile as he started to speak; knowing it isn’t any of the things he spoke of- her IQ was similar to Ralph’s. She listened to them as he spoke, before she heard the squeaking of the small, angelic girl; for some odd reason, she seemed so modest, as if she was scolded for speaking out of place. Her attention went towards the guy as he tried to console and her first thought was fairly apparent, as if she stapled it to her forehead; they were a couple.

“Yeah, don’t be too cheesed by it; speak out as much as you want.” Ariana grunted nervously, flailing her hand in the air awkwardly. Her eyes examined the two as they, once again spoke; unfortunately, this time, Ariana wasn’t listening to his words- instead, she just nodded. Her thoughts where deep and elsewhere at the moment; as if she was thinking of something that was deep, yet, she threw it out within a matter of seconds.

Ariana looked at them and smiled slightly before she turned towards Ralph. “Come here boy.” She called, having Ralph come to her heels within seconds. “He has a good nose, so I think he might be help; then again, he might not…” She chuckled, her arm tracing over towards her other shoulder.
