Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

0 INK

Yellowstone National Park has become a refuge for the new born 'hybrids.' Hybrids are animals that have been changed into humans to know what it is like to have human emotions and interactions. Now is the time to bare your fangs.

1,066 readers have visited Zoology: Yellowstone National Park since Miyokoshi created it.

Introduction

It began at the San Diego Zoo: one of the most popular tourist destinations for children and adults alike. Seven years ago Dr. Liam Preston began working at the famous San Diego Zoo. His plans were exceptionally innovative, not to mention morally bankrupt. Dr. Preston wanted to experiment on the animals, but the rest of the staff of the San Diego Zoo would never accept his ideas. He chose to conduct his experiments in the middle of the night. The result? Hybrids. Animals during the day, but humans during the night—creatures that retained their animalistic personalities, but also gained the understanding and emotional capabilities of humans. To Dr. Preston, they were beautiful creations.

Dr. Preston was ecstatic about this development, but the animals were another matter altogether. Despite their new found abilities they were still stuck within the San Diego Zoo. Not only that, but they were easily able to escape their cages and mingle with one another. The predators bullied the prey and things slowly grew out of hand. And so Dr. Preston let some of the zookeepers in on his secret, trusting them to help him keep the hybrids under control during the night. With his deepest secret being shared with others, things were bound to go wrong eventually. Five years after his arrival at the San Diego Zoo, his facilities were raided by the government and his experiments were locked away for study.

One by one, the experiments continued to die off. The government was unable to recreate the magic that Dr. Preston had created. It seemed like the hybrid species was going to die out completely, but one year after their imprisonment the last of the remaining hybrids—led by the black panther, Zuhuru, managed to escape along with Dr. Liam Preston. They fled to the wild expanse of Yellowstone National Park. A new lab was secretly constructed and Dr. Preston locked himself inside along with Zu, becoming reclusive and more unstable than he had been before. Liam freed the hybrids up to shift forms whenever they chose. He still created more hybrids, but he no longer attempted to control the animal nature of the beasts. They were allowed to roam free, with only a shock collar on to keep them from wandering outside of Yellowstone.

A year out in the wild passed. Sightings of hybrids out in the woods have gradually increased now that summer is around again and more tourists are pouring into Yellowstone National Park. Some humans have grown curious about the odd people lurking out in the woods. Part of the population believes them to be harmless, but the other half . . . well, the other half isn't so sure. Reports have been made and word has reached the government team assigned to recapturing the hybrids. Because of this, Dr. Preston and his motley crew of creations face more danger than ever—and this time they're not facing tranquilizer darts. The bullets are real and deadly.

Toggle Rules

⒈ G E N E R A L

Always follow the Gaia Terms of Service. Respect others when you speak to them in the out of character thread and never ignore another roleplayer. Keep the out of character comments out of the in character thread. Don't auto-hit or god-mod or any of that. Swearing is, of course, allowed. Sometimes no word has the same impact as fuck! Violence and romance are okay, too, but keep overly sexual content out of my thread. Things should stay somewhere around a PG-16 rating. Take the sexes to messages please.

⒉ L I T E R A C Y

This is a literate and above roleplay and I expect you to post at least one-two paragraphs per post—preferably more. Use correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation to the best of your abilities. Avoid text talk at all costs. Write in third person, past tense. Part of roleplaying is practicing your writing skills, so always edit your posts and do things to the best of your abilities. Effort is part of what counts, after all!

⒊ P O S T I N G

Posting styles should always at least contain your character's name and a picture. Post at least once every few days—I want this roleplay to be pretty active. If you must quit the roleplay, message me and let me know. If you happen to have Skype, tell me! I'm on all the time and all of my best roleplays have been ones where everyone chats outside of the main thread. I know for a fact that at least a few people that will be apart of this RP will have Skype.

⒋ C H A R A C T E R S

Use anime pictures for characters. You may up to one of each type of character (predator hybrid, prey hybrid, government agent, Yellowstone toursit). Only take as many characters as you can handle. Only government agents may carry weapons. Hybrids are faster and stronger than normal humans. They also share traits with their animal counterparts. So predator characters are more forward than prey characters. Animals that travel in packs make for more social humans than solitary animals. And so on. Keep your animal in mind when designing your character's personality. Also, be aware of the fact that while hybrids have animal-like personality traits, they do not have animal-like physical traits. NO EARS. NO TAILS.

Tsuchi [White Wolf soon-to-be hybrid]

Tsuchi became worried when the Panther and the snake went away. All that was left was the Arctic Fox in front of her now. She started to leave the den area and go the way she came in. Tsuchi could sense that the Fox was still following her though. She broke into a run, but suddenly stopped. She sniffed the area, her fur was standing on end. There was something coming and it would get here soon. Tsuchi knew she couldn't be seen by the thing that was about to come. She would need to hide. She could be in for some real trouble. Perhaps finding another den spot would help.

Tsuchi ran around the fringe of the area, looking for another den. She managed to find another one that had no scent to it so nothing had been staying in it yet. Tsuchi took advantage of that and quickly sought shelter.

Kitty watched the wolf leave then went to go find the snake she wanted to know why he left so she followed his scent. She stopped suddenly at a bush and shifted out of her fox form. She stretched arching her back and touching her feet twisting her body and rolling her neck. Then she took her white short skirt and slid it on and her white matching short sleeved top that showed her stomach. She put on her white knee-high high-heeled boots and her white and silver belt that had a huge pink stone in the middle and connected the black spender like fabric that was connected to her top to the belt. She smiled as she checked to see if her outfit was on right then stopped a ways behind the snake and boy. One hand holding her other arm in a shy way as she watched them her curiosity of the boy and snake were peaked when she heard the snake ask "What are you?" She too wanted to know what he was. Her long white hair blew in the wind. She could feel a storm coming but decided to ignore it. Her den was close anyways and she liked the rain is was soothing and nice. The thunder was like a lullaby to her it all soothed her. She loved storms. She was different that way. She liked to jumped around and move her body is strange yet comfortable ways when the rain poured down she often did odd things like that. She guessed it was the human in her.

Kallik, the Shakey Fruit Bat Hybrid

What are you?

Kallik nearly fainted from shock at that instant. He made a squeeking noise and jumped at least 4 feet into the air. Once he landed - on his ass, none the less - he turned to his attackers. That word was probably overused in his vocabulary, but at the moment all he cared about was the fact that a massive, hungry looking snake was near him. He noticed another lady, but he was too terrified by the cobra to do anything but stare. What are you? The question kept reverberating in his brain, constantly thrashing about. He would have tried to get up and run, but it was getting close to mid morning and his lack of human coordination was starting to get the best of him. Every time he would try to answer, it would stutter out as "I... i-I... W-We-ell..." He closed his eyes, hoping he wouldn't fall asleep, and then finally burst out with quick, fast paced words.

"I'm just a small, insignificant fruit bat from the zoo and I've been trying to get back to my cave cause the sun is coming up and I don't want to fall asleep out here where something will eat me so please, please just let me pass and don't eat me!" Each word came out quicker than the first, making it almost sound like total gibberish, at least to him. However, talking that much while the sun rose also had its after affects: He was starting to get really tired. He hadn't realized how much he had actually eaten nor how much he had ran on his blasted human feet. He wished he could just curl up into a little ball, back in his normal form, and sleep, or even die. He didn't care. He nearly drifted off to sleep, when he looked more closely at the snake. Could it be...

"Were... Were... Were you one of the animals from that zoo?" He thought the cobra looked awfully familar, but he wasn't sure why. Sure, while at the San Diego zoo, there were lots of snakes and other animal hybrids, but he couldn't remember if any of them survived. The only people he remembered were that Zuhuru, the one who he was pretty sure hated him, the Doctor and a few other mammals.

Kitty waited for the snake to answer him. She wanted to help the poor creature. She would escort him to his cave. Poor thing looked terrified and was so sleepy it was honestly adorable how sleepy he was. She shook her head a bit freaked out by that sudden thought. She'd have to get used to this her weird emotions and her plain oddness. She felt bad for the poor fruit-bat? Was that what he called himself. It sounded weird in her mind like all words did but this one sounded completely off. He should've been in his den by now..right? She searched her memories for any knowledge she had of fruit bats. It was a attempt in vein of corse. She had no idea what a fruit bat was, looked like or what they sounded like. What they did or well...anything. She barely knew what a snake and panther was..She hated how she didn't remember anything from her previous life. Did she have a family? Was she loved? Is she missed? How did she get here? What happened? Not to mention the question of what was she. Was she a human first or a animal. What was she now? A freak? Yeah that sounded about right. A freak. A weirdo. Something that wasn't supposed to be like this. She sighed silently as she came up with no answers and for any other of her questions. Everything was just a black void of nothingness. Her earliest memories were waking up to be this whatever she was. She focused on there conversation to get away from these thoughts.

Shinji [ The King Cobra Hybrid ]


Shinji's large, cobra head swayed absently. Though his serpent muzzle always appeared to be faintly smiling, had he human lips at that moment he would have smiled. What a nervous little thing, this Hybrid was. A fruit bat? That sounded familiar. Shinji knew what bats were, but he wasn't sure how many he had ever seen. And he knew he had never eaten one. He made a note to try one later. But maybe not this one… This one was funny. His human form was not unattractive, either - which always earned bonus points in Shinji's case.

The cobra's head lifted further off the ground, though still not in a threatening gesture. "Ah, yes. You're one of the first Hybrids, too, hm? Funny, we must have spent so much time near each other and have never met." His tongue flickered, though it remained out an extra few seconds to wag up and down. The cobra swiveled around to peer at the white fox who had apparently followed him. The canine hadn't spoken since appearing - but had taken human form since catching up to him. "Something you want, Fox?" He addressed the Hybrid as he had earlier addressed Zuhuru. His tone was kept casual, though a mysterious stalker made him rather anxious. If the fox maintained her silence he might have to flash his hood. He didn't want to give her the notion he was an easy meal just because he didn't have limbs.

Kitty [The Shy & Curious Artic Fox Hyrbid]

Kitty waited a couple seconds then looked around as if she expected someone else to answer the snake. She noticed she was the only fox-thing-whatever around "Oh wait you mean me don't you..?" She said now looking down, unhappy at the sudden change of the situation. She sighed as she thought Should've figured I would have to talk sometime.. "Sorry. Curiosity got the better of me." Her voice was silvery(a silvery voice is clear, light, and pleasant) it was also quite soothing almost like a lullaby. She looked up a little her full lips were in a apologetic smile and her long wavy white hair covered half her face so it only showed one silver doe eye. "Really didn't mean any harm by it, honest." She said her one showing silver eye was full of innocence at her words and her lips now parted in a pouty-frown. "I also wanted to warn you that another storm is coming. I don't know if you can til that like I can. So I wanted to tell you." She added quickly. Her nervousness had made the words sorta fly together but it was alot easier to understand then the fruit bat's were. Kitty was looking down as she talked and she was blushing. She had one of her hands closed loosely around some of her long hair that was over her shoulder the same hand would then slide loosely down her hair and when she ran out of hair she'd replace that hand with her other hand and it would slid down her hair until it ran out of hair the action was a shy and nervous repetitive motion.

Kallik {Fruit Bat}

Kallik tried to focus on the snake as it moved from side to side, but it wasn't easy. He knew that if he didn't get back to his cave now, one of the two hybrids around him now would eat him. The snake seemed to be toying with him, staring at him so long without speaking. It seriously unnerved Kallik way too much. He nearly blurted something out - which he would have probably regretted - until the cobra lifted it's head off the ground even more, which made Kallik tense his already taught muscles. "Ah, yes. You're one of the first Hybrids, too, hm? Funny, we must have spent so much time near each other and have never met." Kallik gave a little nervous laugh, since the snake said that it was funny, and Kallik knew that most predators wanted to be right all the time. However, his throat constricted out of fear as the snake's tongue was still out for a few more seconds than before. His knees were already slightly shaking from the snake and lady, that tongue didn't help him at all.

Finally, the snake deterred his attention to the fox and asked it a question about what it wanted. Odd question, Kallik thought it wanted to eat something. However, the fox was in its human form, so Kallik was pretty sure eating a snake or a bat wasn't a smart idea for a human. Nevertheless, he stayed wary. It dawned on him when she started talking that he could make a run for it. The sun kept moving up into the sky, the cursed ball of flame that exposed him so often. Kallik also remembered that he was only wearing a pair of shorts, and that his clothes still waited for him at home. He needed to get home.

He nearly stood up and made his made dash for safety when the lady-fox started to sound nervous. Really didn't mean any harm by it, honest. I also wanted to warn you that another storm is coming. I don't know if you can til that like I can. So I wanted to tell you. Kallik made a little squeak from his throat at the sound of a storm. Storm meant rain, and if the rain came he wouldn't be able to fly. But it was the way she said her words that made him stay put, as if she was afraid of them or something. How could she, this lady was at the top of the food chain! It made no sense to the little bat-human. She also seemed to have an obsession with running her hand through her hair, which he knew meant she was nervous. How did he know? As a human, he had similar urges to stair at his feet while scared, laugh in a funny way, and make himself look even more stupid and scared.

"We-ell, thanks for the... head's u-up." He stumbled together. "That just, well, m-ee-ans I nee-eed to get home so-ooner."

Kitty [The Shy & Curious Artic Fox Hyrbid]

Kitty looked up a little more but then looked down quickly "I know. I was wondering if I should help you..you seem to not have such good vision..in the sun..I mean if your okay with that. You can say no of corse. I mean I am a odd...me" She said quickly not knowing what else to say but not wanting to spill her guts to the two.
"But it's really about to start raining so you should prob. decide quickly." Her silver eyes would switch to Shinji then to the fruitbat then down then to Shinji then to the fruit bat then down over and over again, She was still very nervous, her blush deepened in color, her white hair blew gently in the wind. She was still playing with her hair still. Her voice shook a bit at her words every so often. She really had no idea what she was doing she only knew that she felt like she should help the fruitbat get to his den before it began to rain and that she had to do it fast.

Shinji [ The King Cobra Hybrid ]


If his reptilian features were much capable of expression, Shinji might have arched a brow at the fox's belated response. She wasn't the brightest crayon in the box, it would seem - but her looks certainly made up for it. But Shinji inwardly scolded himself a little at the thought; she was in human form, first of all. Humans were not supposed to be attractive. And even if she wasn't, she would otherwise be a fox, and canines were better than humans but still not half as good-looking as snakes. His tongue flickered at her answer. "… Oh. Well, that's fine. Just don't expect to stalk me all day," he replied lightly. "And thank you, though I could have told on my own." His tongue darted in and out again. His senses could generally pick up on the certain charge in the air before a storm, not to mention the humidity beforehand. Though neither of these things were present now, he would have been able to detect the approaching storm in advance eventually. He wondered what sense enabled the fox to tell so early.

His unblinking golden eyes returning to the fruit bat, Shinji inwardly smiled again at the boy's nervous laughter. His scent was overflowing with anxiety, and the cobra's tongue continued to flicker in and out to take in the delightful smell. He was all the more amused at the bat's small sound upon hearing of a storm.

His gaze turned serious when the fox spoke up again, though, and he turned to eye the girl. She presented herself as very timid, but perhaps this was a ruse to lead the fruit bat away and eat him. Shinji's hood undulated slightly at the thought. He had decided he didn't want to eat this entertainingly nervous creature, and so he certainly didn't want anything else to eat him. "… Allow me to accompany you home as well." He said coolly, looking to the fruit bat. "What is your name..? I'm Shinji. I am a king cobra, but don't let that scare you, I'm not hungry right now. I only eat once every week or so," he offered reassuringly. He would have smiled to complete the gesture, but his serpent muzzle was not very expressive and already held an ever-present sort of smile anyway.

Kitty [The Shy & Curious Artic Fox Hyrbid]

Kitty looked at Shinji. He was handsome very much so. She blushed more. "Of corse..." She said embarrassed she even assumed he didn't know about the storm. She backed up when she saw his hood. She squeaked a bit. "N-no. Y-You two go ahead. I-It was nice to meet you. I'm Kitty...and I don't want to eat you either..I don't know what a fruit bat is but I prefer berries over meat." She said still back away her hands up as if to surrender or say she wasn't a threat and turned to walk away. "Good luck to you both. I hope you get home safely sir fruit bat." She said.

Zuhuru [The Black Panther Hybrid] + Dr. Liam Preston [The Eccentric Doctor]


There was only so much that Zuhuru could take. At some point Shinji went from being slightly amusing, with his quirky attitude and attempts to get her out of the tree, to complacent and social. Two years must have been some sort of limit for Zuhuru, because after spending so much time with the damn King Cobra Hybrid she was rather fond of him. The Black Panther Hybrid was, despite what Shinji would tell you, a rather level-headed girl. As long as she had a cigarette between her lips she would be glad to hang around for a pleasant chat. She would even play with all of the hybrids, be they predator or prey. For the most part she had always been closest with the other big cats, but she stayed pretty friendly with everyone as long as she got her daily dose of nicotine. When Shinji was around, however, Zuhuru was like a different person. She got moody and possessive because he is one of the oldest hybrids, along with her, and she doesn't want to lose that close connection. Instead of being calm and relaxed, she was slightly tense and uptight. Every little thing seemed to alert her. It might have had something to do with the fact that the snake didn't quite enjoy her habit of smoking so she tended to not do it around him, and that was never good.

The first year had been the worst. Sure, throughout the five years that Zuhuru spent in the San Diego Zoo as a hybrid she had hung around with Shinji often. In the zoo, however, there had been other hybrids to distract the somewhat obsessive panther hybrid. The moment she got trapped in one of the cells in the government's laboratory with Dr. Preston though, things had gotten a bit out of hand. There had been violence and then lab tests and then attempted murder and then another attempted murder and then attempted rape and then more violence. It had been a wild ride and both of them had gone a little stir crazy. Needless to say, the escape had certainly been needed. Zuhuru had stayed to watch over the eccentric Dr. Preston while he fiddled with his experiments, but Shinji went out on his own and she often times would come to visit him.

In the meantime, Zuhuru's lean black shadow of a form smouldered into the laboratory and with a sickening snap, she reverted to her human form, wrapping the thin jacket she'd stolen earlier around her flawless skin. The female glanced about the cold facility and called out to the silence, waiting on some time of ridiculous response.

"Dr. Prestooon~ Kitty is here."

"OH MY LOVELY KITTY CAT!"


With a vicious cry and shriek, there was a loud thump, regarding that both adults were now on the floor as Dr. Liam Preston had leapt from the test table behind her and tackled her to the ground as his means of a joke. A very bad joke. After a few shouts and arguing, they were back on their feet and Zuhuru was being embraced in such a tight hold she felt as if her head would pop off.

"Zuzu my lovely, LOVELY kitty! How've you been dear? How are the hybrids? Did you bring me something good to look at? Oh PLEASE tell me you have something new for me to experiment on!"

"Woah woah woah, chill out, Dr. Preston. Chill. I'm fine and I'm not here to play with you today, I'm here to report that there is a new wild one in our territory, and for my fix."

"Of course, OF COURSE! Splendid, simply splendid! Good job KittyKat, good job!"


Forking his trembling hand into his pocket, he tosses her her weekly box of cigarettes. Zuhuru snatched the box out of the air with minimal effort, speaking quietly towards him. After explaining the situation, Tsuchi's name, her species, her height, her weight, and pretty much all she could get out of all she noticed from the earlier meet-up. Dr. Preston went on a marvelous rant, bouncing ridiculously along the way about how he had always wanted to dissect a wolf, and even more so a skittish wolf. More fight. Zuhuru curved her head to the side and avoided his frantic rambling, not wanting to hear such nonsense until he made a comment about how Zuhuru should go capture her. When she went to protest, she was stunned by the look in his eyes and shrugged it off into a nod. With few words, tighter embracing, and even more teasing, Zuhuru made her way out of the facility. Couldn't she ever have a day were she didn't have to chase someone?

Trusting the good doctor to handle himself, Zuhuru left the lab in search of some preparation time before the hunt. She needed peace, she needed quiet, and she needed a fucking smoke. The thick metal doors shut behind her and the first thing she did was to reach into the pocket of her jacket and pull out her pack of cigarettes and her lighter. It was the same lighter that she had gotten from the scientists in the government lab. She had kept it as some sort of souvenir. Sly smirk on her face, Zuhuru flicked the lighter and lit her cigarette in the cool air of the early morning. Later on she would need to shift into his true form, but for now she was content to suck the nicotine into her system and wander away from Dr. Preston's laboratory. She was wearing nothing but the thin jacket that barely covered her features and her bare feet padded along the warm earth of the mountainside, toes curling pleasantly.

Zuhuru took in a deep breath, scenting the air for any nearby hybrids. She knew the smells of all of them—every single one. Each of the hybrids she either remembered from the San Diego Zoo or she had watched being made by Dr. Preston inside of the lab that she had just left, or she had met them recently. Up near the mountains it was cloudier than the rest of Yellowstone. She caught the scent of her prey and she finished up her cigarette. In one smooth movement she shifted, flowing easily from one form to the next. Unlike a lot of the newer experiments, she knew how to keep her clothing during a shift, though often times didn't. As a panther, Zuzu weighed nearly three-hundred pounds, diversely larger then the other panther species, whether branched from jaguar/leopard/or cougar. She was the largest of the big cats currently stationed in Yellowstone National Park until they get their first tiger or lion hybrid, something that was apparent in her size as a human as well as her size in her animal form. The creature she was after now was considerably smaller and lighter then her, and that was normally the way it was: Tsuchi, the White Wolf Hybrid. It was Tsuchi that the doctor had decided to have her bring back, wounded or not. Her large paws and powerful muscles carrying her sleek form quickly through the trees, Zuhuru was familiar with Yellowstone and knew her way.

With a deep and unsettling eerie resound, a vicious snarl ripped through the forests and bounded it's way over the trees. Any hybrid that had been in Yellowstone knew that bloodcurdling snarly scream that signaled the hunt. Any hybrid knew it would be a good time to clear the forest, for if they took up any of Zuhuru's precious time to collect the beast, she'd take them down in an instant. With the hunt on, Yellowstone pleasant morning were broken into tense stillness and unease.

Kitty [The Shy & Curious Artic Fox Hyrbid]

Kitty heard the sign and remembered it instantly. She didn't know where but she knew it was bad and she knew she needed to get the hell out of dodge so to speak. She was terrified. She stood there wide eyed in surprise. "Sorry..." She squeaked but couldn't move she was too scared.

Tsuchi [Soon to be White Wolf hybrid]

Tsuchi heard something that almost made her jump out of her skin! A snarl the likes she has never heard before. She went deeper into the new den she had found. It did have a back exit for emergencies. Tsuchi was shaking like a leaf as she kept herself at least ready to fight if she had to.

Kallik, the Fruit Bat Hybrid

I know. I was wondering if I should help you..you seem to not have such good vision..in the sun..I mean if your okay with that. You can say no of course. I mean I am a odd...me" Kallik sat there, flabbergasted at the proposal. He didn't know how to respond to such a request as ludicrous as this. She could already tell that he had terrible vision, that much was given already since he was merely hearing them, but she even went as far to make it like it was a problem for him! Does she really not know the hierarchy around here? I get eaten by you guys! And you want to help me? But I can't refuse, or they might get angry and eat me anyway... He started to squirm a little at his royal disadvantage. He already knew his luck was terrible, but now this? Either the world was going insane and he was suddenly not food, or these hybrids weren't animal driven. "But it's really about to start raining so you should probably decide quickly." He blinked his large eyes, and was going to reply when the snake pulled a fast one on him that completely knocked him out of his senses.

"… Allow me to accompany you home as well." His eyes got large. Since when did a snake want to be with him?! This went against how things worked! I eat fruit and you eat me! What is going one here?!?! "What is your name..? I'm Shinji. I am a king cobra, but don't let that scare you, I'm not hungry right now. I only eat once every week or so," Now it came back to Kallik, who was beginning to remember the Cobra. He was a friend of the Black Panther Hybrid, the one that scared him most of all. But that still didn't change how terrified Kallik was at the moment, and it wasn't just because of the snake and fox, but of the whole situation. Even with his reassurance, Kallik had no doubt that they would probably try to kill him. However, since they were the predators, he was hoping that he could at least have a little peace treaty between them, so he didn't have to worry about more predators.

"Al-Alright. Oh, and m-my name is Kallik, an-and I'm an Egyptian Fr-fruit bat." And I'm taking your word on that fact, but you probably are hungry... he thought depressingly as the Arctic fox once again spoke, but this time her face was an odd shade of red. Or had it always been? "N-no. Y-You two go ahead. I-It was nice to meet you. I'm Kitty...and I don't want to eat you either..I don't know what a fruit bat is but I prefer berries over meat. Kallik completely lost it. His jaw dropped, his eyes widened considerably. Did this fox, who eats meat and kills anything it can, just say that it liked to eat... berries?! Kallik couldn't understand, couldn't handle the absurdity of the entire situation. He must be losing it. Good luck to you both. I hope you get home safely sir fruit bat. As Kitty began to walk away, Kallik was totally and utterly confused. But for the first time in a long time, he finally spoke on his instincts.

"I-If you need a dry place, my c-cave should be somewhere o-over there." He then quickly stopped himself and added in a quiet squeak "As long as-as you don't eat me." He then finally stood up, and began to run towards his cave, but not nearly as fast as he did before: He was too worried that the Cobra would be upset if he did.

Kitty [The Shy & Curious Artic Fox Hyrbid]

I-If you need a dry place, my c-cave should be somewhere o-over there." He then quickly stopped himself and added in a quiet squeak "As long as-as you don't eat me."

She blushed a bit more. She could til by his face he couldn't believe she only ate berries. She couldn't understand why. Arctic Foxes ate both berries and meat. They ate what they could find. Was it so weird that she preferred berries over meat? She wondered but looked at the snake he was probably furious. And she wanted to live the snakes venom could kill her she at least knew that. She looked at the snake "The same offer he gave you is up for me too. I understand if you very well dislike me..I didnt mean for this...honest..I just wanted to stay silent and not talk to anyone and be a idiot fox-thing-whatever I am. I didn't-" She cut herself off. My den's near the plains. She said hoping he didnt want to kill her for her rash actions. She wanted to take a step closer and apologize more. But again she felt like she was only being a nuisense to the poor snake. "Sorry again..." She said her voice showing how bad she felt. She turned and ran to her den. Once there she took off her clothes and shifted. She then curled up in a ball using her fluffy tail as a pillow and fell back asleep.

Zuhuru [ The Black Panther Hybrid ]


The scent of fear hit her nose, instinct kicking in faster then the human mind could ever catch up. Adrenaline coursed through Zuhuru even harder and faster now. She may not have been as fast as the cheetah, but she was still rather fast and unlike the cheetah she could control her transformations and maneuverability like no other. Not that it would do much until she managed to get free and find other panthers though. The only blessing she had was that it wasn't too odd for a panther to be here. Without a second thought, she turned directions, time seeming to slow down as she bolted. In an instant the panther mind began to take over. She had the distinct feeling of the shift ready to happen. No, not yet. Keeping low to the ground as she weaved through the territory. She could hear padding of fleeing prey. Great, obstacles. Her lips curled back into a smile as she jumped over the last obstacle. She landed with a jolt, freezing for just a second. She was in the forest. She looked quickly, breathing heavily as she caught the scent of the complete and utter terror. Did the wolf not know that her fright radiated off her like a fire drawing moths to it? Silly creature, for it would soon learn of it's mistake.

Zuhuru's thick and heavy paws dug silently into the earth around her claws as she crept up on the den, tail poised low and barely above the ground. She was tensed, like a spring ready to break as she waited. Zuhuru knew that Tsuchi would have to come out eventually. The longer she waited, the hungrier she grew, the quicker the chase would end. As the smouldering black shape crouched into a bush a few meters off, clear view of the den, she called out to the wolf in fair warning.

"Tsuchi, I told you I'd be back. You should have left. Come with me or I will have to take you by force, and you won't be unscathed from that. You have 10 seconds to make your choice."

Zuhuru quickly shifted positions into a deeper part of the bush, entire body still and cranked to full potential. With her entire body concealed by a shadows and foliage, the demon was hidden and poised for attack.

Let the countdown begin.

Tsuchi [White Wolf]

Tsuchi started to head for the back exit of the den that was well away from where she heard the panther. She just needed to get into a good pace once out to get away. She managed to make it to the back exit and poked her head out. She smelled the air and found here the panther was and where she could start running. Once her body was out completely, she started to make a dash toward the weird looking fence pole things! Tsuchi had to get out of there! Her ears were down and her body sleek as she ran.

Shinji [ The King Cobra Hybrid ]


Shinji couldn't help but recoil slightly at the snarl that tore between the trees. Its source was easy enough to guess, and the cobra understood its meaning, too. He wondered what the doctor was after now… Probably nothing too dangerous for Zuhuru, at any rate.

His unblinking gaze refocused on the fruit bat once he spoke up once more. Kallik… What an interesting name. Shinji's tongue flickered in and out at it, but his serpent maw was incapable of attempting its pronunciation. It would be an experiment that would have to wait until he took human form again. He, too, eyed the silvery-haired girl at her talk of eating berries. It must have been further deceit to lead Kallik into a false sense of security. Mammals ate much more than snakes did; there was no way she could live off berries alone.

The cobra's tongue darted out again at Kallik's offer. Shinji still did not think it was going to rain quite so soon, and he had taken cobra form to lay out in the sun, after all, so resting in a cave did not sound terribly appealing at the moment - but it was nonetheless an offer he would keep in mind later, if Kallik's home proved to be comfortable enough. If it did rain eventually, he would need a dry place later, at least. So once the fruit bat took off again for home, Shinji slithered after him, keeping up with relative ease. King cobras were fast, if not just for their size, but could not move at top speed for too long of long distances, so Shinji hoped the cave was not far. He was not having to move at top speed to keep up so far, but moved at the equivalent of a jog - still a pace he didn't want to have to maintain for too long. He didn't like exhaustive amounts of exercise.

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

umm....I don't think this is going to go anywhere....I like this RP, but if it doesn't go somewhere soon, I might have to leave it.

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

No.. She might be busy with school or work or something. I'm sure we'll hear from her in time~

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

np ani....have you heard anything from Miyokoshi lately?

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

Whoop..! I guess I've fallen behind. Sorry guys. @_@ I'll get to posting right away, fo' realz.

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

anyone there? anyone gonna post?

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

Miyo lives in the East Coast but has the worst sleeping habits so she's like.. never on when everyone else is.

And in regards to Sehnsucht's question, you ARE allowed to have more then one character, but you may only have 1 of each type, meaning: 1 Hybrid, 1 Tourist, and 1 Government Agent.

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

I think I can answer this one right, but correct me Miyo if I am wrong.....but yes you can have more than one character if you can handle it

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

Are we allowed to play more than one character?

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

oh ok....sorry :P btw just out of curiousity, do you live East Coast, Central, Mountain, or West Coast time zone, miyo?

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

Relax sweetpea, it wasn't directed at you. That was more so because of the notice I put up to advertise the group. I don't want the new children to think that a few sentences that give other roleplayers nothing to work off of is considered workable. No biggie.

And no. No one is allowed to like the doctor.. He's just.. Ugh he's so over the top. XD

Anndddd another exciting announcement, MIYO PUT UP AN ADVERTIZEMENT THREAD.

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

of course he is...he is going to be getting my character for his experiment soon

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

In other news, Dr. Preston is really delightful. Shinji may not like him much, but I do. xD <3

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

the definition of a paragraph is 3-5 sentences. so something may not look long but if it fits that criteria, then its at least a paragraph.

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

Omg, I'm gonna feel like an ass.. but..

Guys remember the literacy aspect. I'm back now, and royally active, so I'm gonna start enforcing the rules now. Make sure you set up your posts nicely, pictures and all, but more so the literacy cap.

This is a literate and above roleplay and I expect you to post at least one-two paragraphs per post—preferably more.

Notice!
Gonna start updating the Front Page more and daily to keep up with the RP. If you are lost, LOOK THERE.

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

Notice!

The weather will not be changing from sunny/cloudy until TOMORROW! The weather will be nice all day!

On that note, I will be replying to the RP DIRECTLY after my LAST play tonight and that ends at 7pm
PLEASE HAVE PATIENCE!

Also, thank you all for staying with me, I have big plans for this group, so have fun in my absence.

Re: [OOC] Zoology: Yellowstone National Park

well I can't post anything until Miyo is back because the next part for me is for Tsuchi to be captured and she is Dr. Preston as well.
