Under One Moon

0 INK

CLOSED 1x1 supernatural romance/adventure. One evening, 2 teenage Weres find their pack brutally murdered. They must find out who did it and why, before they suffer the same fate as their families and friends. Better summary inside

1,274 readers have visited Under One Moon since Jamie95 created it.

Introduction

Introduction:

“What happened…?” the young female said softly, her voice trembling.
“I don’t know…” the male, Mitchell, breathed back, his eyes wide as he tried to take it all in.
The gutted, mangled bodies of their friends lay around them. Some human, some animal and some, caught, somewhere in between. The floor and walls were splattered with blood and the scent hung thick in the air, metallic and tangy. Across the wall in deep crimson red, still wet and dripping a little were the words: we know what you are.

Premise:

For centuries there have been stories of people who can turn into animals. Legends of Werewolves, Werepanthers and Werefoxes, a gene passed down through generations. Myths telling of a first born child to two pure blooded Weres howling into the night. On the first full moon after the child’s sixteenth birthday, it is forced to change into an animal of nature’s choosing. From then on, when they change is their choice but the animal they become will always be the same. The awakening of the animal gene induces heightened senses and an increase in strength. All these powers also intensify depending on the proximity to the full moon. Once in animal form they take on all the unique strengths and characteristics of the animal, but still retaining their human personality. These people are few and far between but they are viciously loyal, incredibly secretive about their nature towards humans and tend to stick together, forming packs in each state.
This is where our characters come in. They are both members of the Minnesota pack, living in Alexandria. The pack is one of the smallest packs, comprised of forty-three people between the ages of sixteen and sixty-seven. The Alpha Male is Mitchell’s father, Linden. Each state has its own pack and nearly all the Weres in the area are members. Our characters have always been in the same pack and attend the same high school, they’re both in their final year there, but have never really known each other well, up until now.
Pack meetings are hosted the day after a full moon every month and all members must attend. On February 8th 2012, the meeting is hosted in the large barn of the alpha male. After being let out of class late, our two main characters are five minutes late for the meeting. When they arrive they discover that every single one of the other forty-one pack members, including their parents and friends, have been ripped to shreds. Blood splatters the room and their bodies lie, abandoned and gutted around the barn. On the wall, written in the blood of the alpha are the words: we know what you are.
Despite their grief, they realise they must run if they are to survive. Together, they set out for New York to find the largest and most important pack to get help. The must try to avoid the same fate their family suffered while discovering who killed them all and why. But don’t forget, as well as being an adventure this roleplay, is primarily a romance between the two main characters that develops as the story goes on.

What I’m Looking For:

I’m looking for a girl to play the female in my 1x1 romantic roleplay. I want a really good character played by a proficient and diligent writer. The girl needs to be eighteen and you need to stick to the basics outlined here. Obviously it’s no good if the girl faints at the sight of blood and is terrified of boys. Other than that it’s totally your choice what you want to make your character. If you want to get involved then if you register your interest in the OOC Forum then I’ll make sure I wait for your character sheet before just picking someone else. Also, if you have any questions feel free to ask me there too.

Character Skeleton:

Name: (First name and surname)
Age: 18
Gender: Female
Date of Birth:
Hair Colour:
Eye Colour:
Height:
Weight:
Animal: (the animal your character shifts into)
Appearance (Human): (your character’s appearance as a human)
Appearance (Animal): (and her as an animal)
Personality:
Likes:
Dislikes:
Hobbies:
History:
Family:
Quote: (just something your character might usually say or a motto they live their life by)
Song: (a song to represent your character, almost like a soundtrack for their life, title and artist)

I’d also like at least 2 pictures of your character as a human and one in their animal form. You can dot them through your character sheet wherever you like, I don’t mind. I’d also like them to be real, not anime.
Also, if there’s anything else you’d like to add into your character sheet then that’s fine too. I know I’ve put quite a lot of stuff into the character sheet but if more than one person applies then it’ll be really good to help me decide.

Toggle Rules

Rules:

  • Romance will definitely be included, if you’re uncomfortable with that, don’t join.
  • Romance should be kept to PG-13 on the roleplay forum but if needs be then we can take it to PM.
  • I want someone who is at least literate. If you could provide me with a short sample of your writing in your character profile that would be great. I don’t need much, just 2-5 lines for me to see.
  • Swearing will probably be included. This is supposed to be a modern-day roleplay set in our world. Most people swear these days, get used to it. Again, if you’re not comfortable with it, then you know not to join.
  • 2-5 paragraphs per post (unless it’s in a conversation or something like that) and you must be able to post regularly (at least once a day).
  • Violence and gore will probably be included, so again if you’re not okay with that… I think you get it by now.
  • Read all the rules, introduction, premise, what I’m looking and my character sheet for before submitting a character sheet.

He watched her turn quickly at the sound of his voice, startled. Her hand was on her chest and it rose and fell quickly with her breath. Mitchell cursed himself inside his head. He hadn't meant to startle her.
“Sorry,” he apologised softly, but he wasn’t sure if she’d heard him.

She walked towards Mitchell, switching off the garage light. He moved with her, out of the way, allowing her to shut the door, leaving the place behind.

She sighed before asking him "So we drive? Should we take one of our parent’s cars?"

Her use of the word, ‘take’ rung in his head like a warning bell. It seemed so wrong to be ‘taking’ something that belonged to a dead person. ‘It’s what they’d want,’ he promised himself, ‘they wouldn’t want me to die.’

“Yeah,” he said eventually, “I guess it’s our only choice. We’ll borrow one of their cars.” He stressed the word borrow, as if trying to prove to himself it wasn’t really stealing. Although, you couldn’t really borrow something from a dead person… He pushed that though to the back of his mind as they walked through the house together to the front door.

He turned and exited the house, leaving Evana a moment to say goodbye. Meanwhile, he inspected the car in her drive. It was nothing special. Enough to carry five people, two in the front, three in the back – as long as the third person was a small one. There was a bit of boot space; enough to put the stuff they’d brought in. It was no better than his parent’s car and the daylight was already starting to dip slightly, he didn’t want to spend any more time messing about here. And, if that meant taking her car because it was closest, that was fine with him.

Evana allowed her gaze to wander around the living room of the home. She would miss late nights watching movies with her family, halfheartedly fighting over a bowl of popcorn. A ghost of a smile crossed her face.

“Yeah, I guess it’s our only choice. We’ll borrow one of their cars.”

He said after a few moments and she almost winced at his stressing of the word 'borrowed.' Borrowing from the dead wasn't possible, and she had set up her mothers will with her, just in case something happened. Evana didn't mention this, not wanting to start off on the wrong foot at the very beginning. After a few moments, he left her alone in the house.

She walked into the middle of the living room and turned slowly, taking everything in one last time. The mess in front of the TV, her brothers overflowing toy box, the blankets and pillows strewn across the couch. She would miss it all, but she felt as if she was saving her little brother. She walked to the front door, grabbing her mothers keys off a table next to it. Her bottom lip found it's way in between her teeth as she placed her hand on the door knob. With a shuddering sigh, she opened the door and stepped outside. She quickly closed the door and locked it. She turned and walked down the steps to the car, opening the trunk and dropping her heavy back pack into it. She waited for Mitchell to place his inside before closing it.

"Do you want to drive? Or should I?" she asked, holding the keys in her outstretched hand.

After what couldn't have been any more than a minute, Evana joined him outside. She locked the door behind her and unlocked the car with a pair of keys she had clearly just retrieved from inside. She dropped her bag into the trunk and Mitchell did the same. She closed the trunk and stretched out a pale hand, holding a pair of keys.

"Do you want to drive? Or should I?" she asked.

Mitchell considered her question for a moment. He didn’t really feel like driving the unfamiliar car through the dark. But, he thought as he flicked his eyes over Evana’s face, she still looked really shaken up.


“I’ll drive,” he concluded firmly, taking the keys from Evana. It wasn’t that he didn’t trust her. But he did think that perhaps it was best if he drove.

He glanced over the unfamiliar keys and located the unlock button. The made a soft clicking noise as it unlocked and he opened the door to the driver’s side. He climbed inside and started the engine, eager not to spend too much more time here. The headlights automatically came on, as they did in most cars when they sensed it was dark. The darkness made Mitchell feel slightly uneasy. He’d never liked it much as a child. Tasha had always teased him about it, even thought he’d fervently denied it. But, when Tasha had gone to bed, he’d always asked his Mom to leave the light on the landing on and the door a crack open. She’d just smiled understandingly and nodded. He felt a memory of her kind, empathetic face flash through his mind. It stung instantly and he felt tears prick in the corners of his eyes. Because, it was dark now. The whole world was darker. Darker than it had ever been. And he no longer had his Mom to make sure a chink of light always shone through the door.

“I’ll drive.”

Evana let out a breath she didn't know she had been holding. She knew she was being a bit pathetic and he had lost his parents too, but for some reason she felt as if he wouldn't mind. She smiled thankfully and got into the car. She sunk gratefully into the comfortable seat, faintly aware of the fact that this was the first time she had sat down since they left the barn. An image of her mothers marred wolf body flashed through her mind and her eyes closed. Her head fell against the head rest and she blinked away the tears that had sprung in her eyes.

For all intense and purposes, she was now dead to the world as well, to everyone she had ever known, except Mitchell. None of her friends would bug her about stupid social things, her little brother would never beg her to play a video game with him. She released a shuddering breath and lifted her head, her eyes opening. An unfamiliar face stared back at her from the rear view mirror. Her usually warm, kind eyes had become cold and distant. Her smile was gone and she somehow appeared older than just 18. She turned away from the mirror, forcing herself to look across the car at Mitchell, who had tears in his eyes. After a moment of hesitation, she reached across the car and grabbed his hand, giving it what she hoped to be a comforting squeeze.

Re: [OOC] Under One Moon

Okay. Thank you ~ Hope you enjoy the RP ~

~ Esa

Re: [OOC] Under One Moon

Okay, I've kept putting this off because I wanted to make sure I wouldnt change my mind and I didn't want to upset anyone or make them mad but it's Monday evening and I promised I'd post my choice tonight so here it is.
It was a really hard decision, especially between two of them, I thought they were all fantastic though and could've all told different stories. But in the end I had to go for KapugenWolf's Evana Pasternak. I just thought she had the best idea of the story I was trying to tell and her character was really the sort I was looking for that would fit best with mine.
Thanks so much to everyone who applied though and if I make anymore RPs I'd love you to have a go.
Jamie

Re: [OOC] Under One Moon

Okay sure, I got your resubmission and the picture works just fine this time.
However, I also got another profile just recently. I thought I had decided last night between the two I had and was going to post my decision about now-ish. But, I'm not sure now after the most recent one so expect my decision early tomorrow evening. Sorry for the delay everyone, just want to make sure I get it right.

Re: [OOC] Under One Moon

Hi, I just abandoned my character because the picture wasn't working, so I'm going to try to resubmit...^ - ^

~ Esa

Re: [OOC] Under One Moon

(Sorry posts above is my sisters account, she accidentally left it logged on and I posted on that, I've edited her posts and reposted it from mine.)

Okay thanks Esa, I've had one other submitted than yours and I'm going to leave it open just a little longer to give people who've shown an interest but haven't had chance to submit a sheet yet. I think I'll probably chose tonight though rather than leaving it until Monday unless someone asks for extra time.

Re: [OOC] Under One Moon

Oh. Okay. Well, I just submitted my character, so I hope you like her! I included an anime and a real pic just in case...

~ Esa

Re: [OOC] Under One Moon

I got your PM, I've just got to post in random forums before I can reply because apparently it won't let me until I have 10 posts up so I will reply soon.

Re: [OOC] Under One Moon

Hi, I'd also like to submit a character. I should have it up soon. (And from the PM question: anime pictures...?)

~ Esa

Re: [OOC] Under One Moon

Hi :)
I need you to write me a character sheet first and submit it because I've also had other people asking me for the part already too and it would only be fair to let everyone have a chance.
I really hope you do choose to submit one though and I look forward to seeing it if you do.
