What We Weren't

What We Weren't

0 INK

A group of people wake up in a room without their memories, not sure of who they are or how they got there. This is their journey back to the world they once knew and the people they once were.

1,240 readers have visited What We Weren't since seekanddestroy created it.

Introduction

The characters all wake up in what appears to be a padded room with a door built into one wall. There's no handle on the inside and no windows out, but somehow air is still circulating into the room. Post a description of your character and how they react to waking up in a strange and unfamiliar place with none of their memories. Should be fun, right?

  • Keep it work-safe, please. That applies to both graphically violent and sexually explicit content.
  • If you have any concerns or issues, PM me.
  • Please PM me your character's history when you submit their profile. Don't put anything on there that wouldn't be obviously identifiable.
  • Remember that we're all here to have fun, and try to do so yourself. If you're dissatisfied with how things are going, PM me and we'll work something out.
  • Since this is a modern setting, keep that in mind when creating your characters. I intend this to be a mundane RP, so no vampires/werewolves/fae/mages/cyborgs/aliens/French/whatever. (Joking about the French.)
  • There is NO! RULE! SIX!
  • Be excellent to each other and party on!

Beau looked to Devren as he introduced everyone, then her eyes wavered over Sully, "Sully. Nice name." She noticed Devren's narrowed eyes and his perplexed facial expression. She was about to ask him what was going on when suddenly a piercing wail cut through the room. Her eyes snapped over to the convulsing man who had just awoken and then to Devren as he started to speak. Beau coughed a bit before waving her hand at Devren, "that won't help him. But this is ridiculous," she said before standing up and walking over to the wailing man. "Hey! Hey!" She exclaimed, kneeling next to him and keeping her hands on his shoulders so he wouldn't roll around.

"What's happening? We're all trapped in here. It's nothing to scream about." She felt the need to be real with this guy, she knew that no matter what had happened before this room, she had never felt the need to be fake with somebody just to keep them happy. So, she did the same with him. "Maybe if you stop wailing we can get down to the bottom of the problem here."

Hearing the man's voice, Aedon felt quite reassured.

"Are you bleeding? Or is it just your head screaming at you?"

At this point - Aedon was writing on the ground, quietly mumbling to himself. He opened his mouth, and managed to speak,

" I-it feels. . ."

He let out a short gasp, and gripped his cranium in his palms, before attempting to continue painfully;

In my head, it, it feels like somebody is.. stabbing in m-my forehead. . "

He responded quietly. Suddenly he felt a hand on his back, he jerked upright, all signs of his headpain gone.

" What the. . "

He sat upright, leaning against the padded wall. He took in his surroundings, noticing other figured were in the room.


"What is this place?"

He mumbled for words, dragging his fingers through his black hair, scanning the padded room. He wondered what it would be outside, perhaps in the vast plains, a desert or heck even in space for all he knew.

Sully noticed Devren's eyeing him up and down, he stared back for a moment when Beau had spoken up. "Sully. Nice name." Figuring this was an attempt at some sense of comfort for Sully, he remained silent in response. Suddenly though, a loud scream pierced through the room. Turning to locate the source, Sully saw a man knelt over on the ground, his hands clamped onto his head. He quickly began writhing on the ground, muttering to himself when the dark haired woman, Beau hurried to his side.

Again, Sully noticed Devren's hesitance in aiding this man, placing Sully under the assumption that he wasn't very trustworthy to everyone in the room as he was letting on. Something we have in common, I see. His attention brought back to the commotion, Sully watched on as again, Beau attempted to comfort another person. Tilting his head, Sully's curiosity was pried by Beau's calm and collectiveness throughout this entire situation. "What's happening? We're all trapped in here. It's nothing to scream about."

At this, Sully took a second to examine the man who seemed to be in agonizing pain. Though it was hard to really tell in the position that he was in, with Beau next to him, the man looked slender even with the heavy leather jacket he wore. It was hard to tell much else about him at the moment, though it seemed like he was trying to get to his feet. With a little help from the woman aiding him, he was able stand. He still looked a bit dizzy but at least now he wasn't screaming. Maybe for some leverage so that he wouldn't crumble back to the ground, he leaned into the wall behind him, his bright blue eyes still a bit glossed over. When he finally said something legible enough for everyone in the room to hear, he spoke rather roughly. "What is this place?"

Well that's the million dollar question, isn't it?

Re: What We Weren't

Anyone wanna adopt Beau?

Re: What We Weren't

Okay so since this is going to die, Imma delete my character soo. .

Re: What We Weren't

So....can somebody post?

Re: What We Weren't

Oh, sorry I did not know that

Re: What We Weren't

Everyone is in the same white padded room, Splash. We are waking up in the room all at once, together.

Re: What We Weren't

I posted about the door because I thought everyone was out. How could he be talking to him, and the girl in his cell when there is no doors open? Did they just magically appear .-.

Re: What We Weren't

If we don't get an explanation as to what's going on by tomorrow, I'm going to post as if Splash never mentioned anything about the door, let alone it being open.

Re: What We Weren't

Where did everyone go? I get antsy when no one posts please don't let this die so soon

Re: What We Weren't

This explains why no one's been posting...Cord have you talked to Seek? I was PMing Splash because they kept posting in the wrong place and it was confusing and then BAM door open...?

Re: What We Weren't

Yeah, What Cord said. I was really confused WTF, I need explanation.

Re: What We Weren't

I'm going to talk to Seek before I post again because that latest post is just confusing, Splash, care to explain the door opening and the figures he saw? Aedon may not have seen the door open but all of our characters would have, how to we explain that?

Re: What We Weren't

So... the door is open? What? Was that Seek's plan?

Re: What We Weren't

Sorry, I'm kinda fuzzy on what's going on... Have NPCs entered the room?

Re: What We Weren't

Yooo, stop posting in the wrong placessss. But good job Dak for taking it anyway

Also, I totally forgot to add in little hints on her history so if Beau gets like random realizations or something of the like its just those...I think I made up the art thing but hey, who knows

Re: What We Weren't

Thanks for pointing that out! Wish I could delete it... Either way, I posted it again. It still works after Cordeaux's post.

Re: What We Weren't

Wait, Kryptonite, you posted in the wrong location so we can't respond...

Re: What We Weren't

I'm really sorry about being AWOL, folks. I got hit with the Finals Bat hard. Thankfully, I should be able to be more attentive moving forward. Again, I'm sorry to have left you all hanging. I'm glad you got going without me. Keep it up!

SeekAndDestroy

Re: What We Weren't

Why don't we just create our own plot? In the event that seek does return, we can just deal with it then and see where to go from there. But I don't see why we should just be confined to introductory posts while waiting for an absent GM

Re: What We Weren't

I agree with Cordeaux. But yeah, SeekandDestroy, get up in dis thing so we can really dig into it!
Or someone else, whatevs. I don't want this awesome puppy to die ):

Re: What We Weren't

Seek shouldn't get mad, we just started it before it had the chance to die without even starting.
