(If Jill joins, I will.)--Too Far Gone (Shadow Serenade)
(@Ena: Ikr like Tori and Luna aren't coming on the document aren't they? x_x Well I suppose we should document this too for the sake of it. What do you think anyways- should we? Join? And if we are, should we bring back the older characters? I try not to bring back the memories of poor Colin and the mushy newbie days which were disgusting. Anyway, I'd make a new character, who will or will not follow them on their journey. Doesn't matter.)--Let it go (*Jill*)
*@Jill, Hey bro you're the boss over here man! I got no nothing! Thanks! I am trying really hard to make it work... I know right!! The have left me all alone :( If you make a new character I will owe you one!! (Hint: make one!!!!) And duh s/he will follow through! But just so you know, Hazel and fawn are coming back in this one!! Just so that I get it clear, Hazel and fawn are siblings and fawn and Echo are in love right? Please, please add on!!*--Scofflaw(Ru)
(@Jill: Tori came, did you see? Luna's not there yet. We need to bug her more. If we join, I'll probably make a new character because it would be too weird to have Minnesota, Saeran, and Sam back here. And I don't want to dig up memories of old Saerena crap. We need to talk on our NES on google docs okay?)--Shadow Serenade (TDC & Turtle)
*I don't even have the energy to post important things here anymore .____.*---sweet nothings-
*Lily as long as you read it it's really nice :) I would add more but I am the only one adding... :(*--Scofflaw(Ru)
*@Ena: Alright then I'll go on the document asap cause Google docs work like crap on my phone so. Anyway, yeah I think I'll jump in. And psst duh I know I'm making a new one.*--Let it go (*Jill*)
(We should talk about our new characters over email or something.)--Shadow Serenade (TDC & Turtle)
The group looked behind them and saw the sight that would give them nightmares for the rest of their lives. "What the--" Gary stammered. --Panda Bear
*HI everyone, I wrote a little bit of this a LONG time ago, but I have NO idea what is going on really. I read the post above by Scofflaw(Ru) and I kinda understand a little bit, but not that much. I am going to try to add based on what I read. If I do something that is like, awful to the story, just ignore it.* He never got to finish his sentence though, because Icicle was dragging him alongside her as fast as her legs would carry her. Gary stumbled along after her, as they ran madly through the strange forest, narrowly missing running into the thick trees that grew there. Gary could Echo and Electra scrambling through the forest in front of them, but there was no sign of Liz as far as Gary could see. Between gasps of breath, he stammered, "Where's Liz?". "Not sure," Icicle replies as she gasped for breath "We have to make sure she's with us!" Gary started to slow down as if to look for her, but Icicle dragged him on replying, "There's no time. We just have to have faith that she'll catch up with us. If we stop, that, that, thing, will catch us." Gary was still hesitating a little bit, but he started running full speed when they heard a russle in the bushes behind them. "Wait!" called an unfamiliar voice. It was the girl from the bushes, and she was pulling Liz along with her. "There is a hollow in one of the trees over there," she said, pointing to a large tree to their right. "It may be a tight squeeze, bit we'll all fit, and we'll be safe." With that she turned and fled to the tree with Liz following, as well as Echo and Electra. Icicle and Gary looked at each other, but when they heard more crashing coming closer, they bolted toward the tree where Liz and the others had vanished into the trunk.--Grace
The thing crept past them as they huddled together within the hollow. Leaves rustled and the wind whispered of an uncertain fate. The thing moved away and Gary sighed. "Boo!" "Aah!" Icicle shrieked.--Jared
"Who's there?" Asked a small voice. They turned, to see a girl holding a knife towards them, and a boy standing a bit behind her, a glare in his eyes. *cue Fawn ans Hazel, i'll write more later.*--Let it go (*Jill*)
*Please tell me, do they already know Fawn & Hazel?*--Panda Bear
**um their memories were erased... So... I don't really know how to put this.**--Let it go (*Jill*)
*@Pandabear, There was huge curse going to fall upon them and in order to save the heroes, the destiny wavers had to split them leaving only the really important ones. One of the destiny weavers (a rather small one), sort of like a minister, is sent to keep an eye on them and show them the path, take them where people need them and not where they need to go. That weaver is Electra. While separating them they had to clear the memory of the heroes about each other or else they would do everything to find their friends :)*--Scofflaw(Ru)
*So they knew them but don't remember them but do Fawn and Hazel remember them?*--Panda Bear
' only leaving the really important ones' bullshit--Shadow Serenade (TDC & Turtle)
Sorry that was uncalled for--Shadow Serenade (TDC & Turtle)
@Ena: Heyyyyyyyy but xD you're right you know. More like the favorite ones.*--Let it go (*Jill*)
*I consider Gary and Liz really important because the are the main characters of the story... Umm are you guys gonna add on any time soon cause I am kinda waiting for you so yea...*--Scofflaw(Ru)
*@Pandabear, no they don't. In the end Electra will let them remember...*
Yeah in a few days ago I guess... Depends, really.--Let it go (*Jill*)
*On what, cause no ones posting...*--Scofflaw(Ru)
Well characters aren't just born in a day. Uh, in some occasions they are, but I like deep characters, and Ena and I are talking about them over email okay?--Let it go (*Jill*)
*OK, thanks :)*
The girl was the first one to speak. "You have three seconds to decide your own fate. You can put your hands up and tell us who you are and what you want or, well, we can attack." Icicle and Liz exchange glances. They make a silent agreement.--Panda Bear
Slowly, each of the members of the group put their hands up, but not before each of them had exchanged a look. Icicle was the last to put up her hands while saying, "We mean you know harm, we are only passing through here..." What happened next was a blur. Icicle sent a knife spinning toward the girl, pinning the tip of her leather boots to the ground. Liz and Gary scurried up behind the boy, and they started to take him, but he was quicker than they had anticipated and ducked out of there grasp. The two groups began to fight, until they heard a voice behind them yell, "Stop!" It was the girl who had led the group of five into the tree. "Fawn, Hazel, I thought I told you that I was going to handle this." The girl was shorter than most of the other members of the group, with mouse brown hair and startling green/blue eyes that seemed to be constantly changing color. Everyone stared at her, and slowly, they all lowered their weapons. "Hope, you cannot tell us what to do all the time," Fawn said matter of factly (She was the last one to put down her weapons, and they still hovered ready to strike at her waist). "I don't, but this was personal buisness," Hope said defendingly"These people did not join me until I caught them stumbling blind through the forest." Hope glared at the group as she spoke.--Grace
*Fawn is a boy lol* ---sweet nothings-
Whats the story about?!?!--Min Joo
Gtg school but I'll enter my charrie when I get home and sort things out for a bit okay?--Starlit Nightmares (*Jill*)
Name, Laia Antonio
Laia means dark beauty or night in Arabic- a fitting name for the short tempered 15 year old. Like other rebels, she is smart and has a sharp, witty and closed off personality, which is quite necessary to survive. She's gentle once you get to know her, but before- fierce and protective, not easy to talk to unless she decides she wants to talk to you. Fast and agile, able to climb into small spaces due to her small build- one that of an 11 year old. Useful but oversartastic, and too quick to act. Misjudges people easily, and too... Accidental. She hates herself, and thinks she shouldn't exist, which results in her lacking in efficiency when she does things unless the person who asked her to do things trusts and encourages her wholeheartedly.
Dark, ebony hair waist length, tied up in a high ponytail. Her brilliant blue eyes, though bright, has a cold demeanor about them. She has a small but sturdy build- that of the scrawniest 11 year old, so is able to run faster, because she's small. (I'll add on more if needed)
History: She woke up when she was 13 with a bounty over her head. Has been on the run ever since. She stumbled upon the gateway mansion by accident, (as all people do,) probably by stepping into a portal that opened up for a split second- in which she just /happened/ to be present for.
1) Little or no romance, please. I get all the decisions for this one. xP
2) Her brother's name is Rijul, meaning innocent. She just calls him Ri, though. Ri is the only person and/or thing that she remembers after she woke up from her concussion, besides her own name. She still doesn't know where he is. --Starlit Nightmares (*Jill*)
Um, Is that for the story?--Panda Bear
/YES/, obviously. Well, no. I was just spamming the NES because I'm an arrogant person who likes to spam NESes with random character forms yeah.--Starlit Nightmares (*Jill*)
*Jill!! Hhah! No, Pandabear she is giving us a view of her character :) Jill, since she is your character go on and introduce her to the group (in the story...) cause I really have no clue how to... Brilliant character, btw :D*--Scofflaw(Ru)
Name: Cystenian Brage ("steadfast music")
Appearance: Straight brown hair that's a bit long for a boy, deep (not dark. deep. major difference) /green/ eyes, pale skin. Slim build. About 5'8", so I suppose rather tall. Tends to be dressed rather formally, but as suits aren't practical within Gateway, he doesn't dress /that/ formally.
Personality: Very intelligent, quite straightforward. Doesn't see the point of sugarcoating. Loves technicalities and loopholes. Doesn't lie often, but will tell partial truths or withhold the truth. He will always take the logical choice, if choices are given. Doesn't tend to make many friends, as the logical choice is often to abandon them or not get too attached. Has plenty of acquaintances though. Also, he's a music lover, though it doesn't really look like he would be. More of a classical person than anything else. Can play the piano and just about any string instrument you put in front of him, as well as the flute. Also, Cystenian is quite neutral on most (if not all) matters.
Back-story: I really have no idea about this. I'll probably come up with something. Due to his intelligence and musical talent, was probably raised in a higher class family, but I really don't know yet.
Other: Has power negation abilities (can nullify the powers of others) that are constantly active.--Shadow Serenade (TDC & Turtle)
*Laia is only like 4'9", so...* *psst WILLOW'S POV YUP 8D* The dull throbbing started when I looked into Hazel's green eyes. They were brilliant, with flecks of gold in them. She still had her hand on the hilt of the sword strapped to her belt, and I did not doubt for one second that she could kill them all in less than a second. "I suppose I should thank you, Hope, for taking us in...?" Gary says uncertainty, running a hand through his hair awkwardly. Fawn was staring at Echo so intensely I thought my mind was going to burst... "May I.. talk to you for a second?" He motioned to Echo, and she nodded, the two of them disappearing who knows where into the tree, which was way more spacious than I had realized. Then, a boy stepped out from behind Hope, his sandy hair only too familiar to me... "Colin!" I breathed. Colin! That name! Before I could stop it, the throbbing suddenly grew to an intense pumping that made my brain feel as if a thousand explosives were cluttering it, ready to blow at any second... Then I fell down, unconscious.--Starlit Nightmares (*Jill*)
Willow had not expected to remember Colin. Or in fact, anything at all. When she blinked and sat up, time had stopped. No one was moving. No one. Willow wasn't surprised- it wasn't the first time things like this happened to her quite a lot. Back when... Images ran through her mind, suddenly. Memories- memories of kissing Colin, of Myrtile, of Gary, Liz, Hazel, Icicle, Crystal, Serena, Saeran, Stephen, Lupa... All those strange, far away, yet all so familiar names flirted through her head like a tornado, and the faces! There were the faces- that girl with the dark toned hair and unfriendly glare. Minnesota! She gasps, and clutches her head as the images continue running, like a data overload. She had no sense of time now, after all, she had somehow, subconsciously stopped time. She saw a light appear at a turn in the hollow tree, and her curiosity got the better of her, she followed. "Hey." Willow's head snapped towards the speaker- a girl with short, neatly cut black hair, though she seemed to have an aline. It wasn't important, though. What was important was that, when the milky brown eyes looked into her own, she recognized her face. "Jill?" Willow asked incrediously, and Jill nodded, waving it off. "Long time no see," she says, and finds Willow still gaping at her. Willow smiled a bit, the corners of her mouth lifting a bit, and found herself making the dumbest comment ever considering she just regained all her memory, and reunited with her creator. "You cut your hair." She says, gaping still. Jill waves again with an air of impatience. "Yes, I did. And as I was going to say, how are the memories?" Willow took a second to process her words. "Oh! Um, they're amazing! Thanks so much for giving them back, Jill." Jill nodded. "But you mustnt tell anyone about this." She warned Willow, and she frowned. "Why not?" She asked Jill, and Jill smiled a bit. "They need to find out in their own time, in their own way. It is not in your place to tell them." Willow sighed bitterly, and nodded. /is it so good, after all, that I regained my memory? What would it feel like, to watch them like this, but not able to tell them?/ she thought. /ah, destiny weavers./ "Now the real reason I brought you here," Jill continued arily, and if she had known what Willow was thinking, (which she couldn't possibly not know,) she didn't take note of it. "Is to return to you THIS." Willow opened her palms, and Jill deposited her closed fist into hers, covering the object with the other hand, and closed Willow's own fist around it. She wondered what Jill could have gave her, but she didn't look at it- her gaze was transfixed at another girl. She looked to be about 11 or 12, but looks could be deceiving, from her own experiences when she looked like a 10 year old for 5 years. She decided to approach her as an equal. The girl had appeared from behind Jill, and her cool blue eyes were staring hardly at Willow. "Willow," she said, extending her hand. The girl with glaring eyes tugged at her ebony hair- held in a high ponytail. She was hesitant, but at last she put her hand out slowly. "Laia." Willow nodded, trying to copy Laia's cool demeanor. "Good!" Jill clapped her hands together, and glanced at the watch on her hand- Willow wished she had one too- and gave a start. "Got to go guys, I'll try to talk later. You know, poems to write, conversations to reply to..." She trailed off. "Anyway, get along! Willow, take care of Laia." Laia took a visible step back, eyes flaring with anger, and a split second of fear before she calmed them. "I want to go with you. And I don't need to be taken care of." She says coldly. "Oh, not that kind of take care, Laia. Just... try to be nice." With a wave, she disappeared, and so did their source of light --Starlit Nightmares (*Jill*)
It wasn't until she got back to the hollow where the others, Fawn and Echo excluded, were, that time resumed its fumbling steps. And it wasn't until then that Willow opened the thing Jill had deposited into her hand. Her pendent. Or rather, the pendent Jill had given her last time... Hazel whirled around, hand on the hilt of the sword, glaring at Willow. "How did you get there? Who is the child?" She growled. Laia's eyes flashed in annoyance. "B**ch. Call me child again and I'll have your head." She put a hand to a dagger she had on her waist, one that Willow had previously not noticed. Hazel laughed, drawing her sword. "I'd like to see you try," she muttered to herself. What was wrong with Hazel, Willow thought. She wasn't usually like this. --Starlit Nightmares (*Jill*)
*sick again...maybe I'll post later ;-;*---sweet nothings-
*Adeline Brooke is a fourteen year old girl, constantly picked on for her association with death. When Adeline loves someone, or gets too attached, they soon end up dead. She, and many doctors, can't explain it. But, just because she didn't kill them doesn't mean others don't have the creeping suspicion she did. So, naturally, she has a bounty on her head. She's been on the run since she was 11, the police have wanted her to be cooped up so she wouldn't hurt anyone. She was already living alone, trying to homeschool herself, since she had accidentally killed her family and one of her classmates. Adeline's only explanation to her "powers" is a spirit that follows her and "protects" her from anyone suspicious. They haven't been able to catch her, because she's learning to harness her powers and kill people within eyesight. She's medium height for her age, and oddly pretty, so people from her hometown called her "Angel of Death" and stayed away from her.
She has cherry red hair that falls in layers to her armpits and bangs. She's not pale- but not tan either. She has amber eyes that have gray rings surrounding them. She's very strong for her age due to running all the time. Adeline has limited access to clothes, so she usually wears a long, heavy sweatshirt and black leggings. She has red sneakers (kinda like Vans). Her appearance is sweet, especially her wide smile, but looks can be deceiving. She recently found herself at Gateway's doorstep, and took the risk of stepping inside. After calling for a few minutes and getting no answer, she expected no one to be home. One night, she heard voices. Not very afraid, due to her being a killing machine, she followed it and found herself in a hallway that seemed endless, and was littered with doors. One of the closer doors had people in it. When about to knock, the door opened and people flood out. They promptly went into another door, and she followed in curiosity. ~Sorry guys, had to ;-;~*---sweet nothings-
Adeline's POV: I carefully shut the door behind me, closing it so lightly it didn't make a sound. I turned around and saw a small group of people- looking to be around my age. They were off a fair distance, by a tall oak. One girl had a sword drawn, pointing it at someone else. I noticed the long grass and realized it'd be tough to tread through. /I don't want to alert them of my presence either./ I thought. I had no idea why a room was a forest, but I always expected strange things. Knowing how to contain my power, I knelt down and took another route, the grass a little shorter. Bugs buzzed around me, the imaginary sun beat down. /It's imaginary...right?/ I asked myself, a little thrown off by the new environment. Trying to shrug off the puzzling room, I blamed it on hallucination. I finally made it to the opening the others were in, but kept myself quiet and unnoticed. I had no idea how they'd react. The sun was making me sweat, and making my mind rush with memories. ~~ "It's an entity. Something's connected to you that's causing this. It's the only explanation! You have to get contact with it." Dr. Harrison said, his palms rubbing his forehead. He looked stressed- no, scared. Scared of me. I wanted to comfort him, but that would probably get him killed. I didn't talk much, in fear of making any sort of relationship. I couldn't kill him too. After my family...it was just too much loss. It's not like I wanted it. I sighed. The room I was in had a thick glass wall to prevent contact between the doctor and I. I was dangerous. "There was a game written about this..." he laughed half-heartedly, soon continuing, "Beyond: Two Souls. Something like that. An apparition was connected to her. It could mess with reality. That /must/ be it!" He seemed excited- after all the research and tests he'd done, I don't blame him. "You have a friend. Learn to control him or her before you kill everyone." ~~ The memory made a chill run down my spine, despite the warm temperature. Something (or someone) was bringing back memories. I could feel them swirl around, resurfacing after I had shoved them down and tried to forget. But whatever thing (or person) that made those memories come back was going to die. I felt my entity tense beside me. He was ready to strike. "Callum, stop." I hissed, quiet so the people in the clearing didn't hear. I had named my entity Callum, since it was a unique name...unique, like we were. I felt him pull harder, wanting to attack the girl who was trying to calm the two fighting. /Willow./ Callum told me. He rarely talks to me, in fact, he only began when I started to run from the police. /That's her name?/ I replied. /Yeah./ he said. Dr. Harrison thought Callum was someone who had died in my family, or close to me. But I think he's just my friend who tries too hard to protect me. /I'm going./ he announced, in a demanding tone. A bloodthirsty tone. He wasn't really all that bad, but when he had an excuse to kill, he'd take it. He pulled, and I fell forward into dirt. "Callum!" I yelped. "What was that?" This voice was unfamiliar as I fought Callum to stay at my side.
*Sorry there's so many errors. Just in a writing mood. /:*---sweet nothings-
Cystenian had no idea where he was. The terrain, if you could call it that, was only shallow grey water. The sky was black, but the far horizon in every direction was blood red. Land stuck up from the surface like shards of broken glass from the ground, and in plenty of places, the land was aflame, but not with ordinary fire: these flames were red, green, and blue. There were also stone ruins scattered about, as well as general wreckage and a few twisted trees. /What/ is /this place?/ he thought. /There's nothing logical about it. No way to tell./ With no other options, he turned to walking straight until he came to something significant. /This grey water doesn't make for very good terrain,/ he noted. /It's quite tiresome. Also, this place seems to be endless and empty./ And it was at that moment he heard music coming from somewhere. There were lyrics, but they didn't seem to be in English. He listened closer; it seemed to be coming from somewhere to his left up ahead. He waded through the water, following the music, which seemed to be a single song on repeat. It lead him to a stone ruin bigger than most-- a large stone platform with steps leading up to it, seven columns rising up to the sky-of-sorts, and a partial roof, in a shape similar to the shards of land sticking out of the water. "So you've reached the center," a voice said from the center of the ruins. Cystenian looked over, to see a young girl sitting cross-legged in the center of the ruins, with one of those strange red-green-and-blue flames beside her, almost like a campfire. The music seemed to radiate from her, though she wasn't singing and there wasn't a visible device playing it. The girl's hair was copper with black tips, and went to her chin. Her skin was fair and freckled, and her build was lean. But her most remarkable feature was her eyes: in them, he could see stars, and a steady fall of rain. He could see light, darkness, fire, ice. He could see a flow of constantly changing emotion. He could see everything. "It's a pretty song, isn't it?" she said, but something in the way she said it made him think she didn't want an answer. "/Rain/ is its name. What a source of feels." "'Feels'?" She waved him off. "Doesn't matter to you." So, he turned to the logical question. "Who are you?" "It depends. I go by many names. You can call me Shadow Serenade for now." "What is this place?" "Just me. It's quite empty these days, although I admit this isn't one of my better days in this time." Her answer was quite puzzling. "Why am I here?" he asked. "You won't be here for long. This is just transition." Everything this girl said made no sense. "What?" "Remember, Cystenian, as far as anyone else knows, you never met me. I don't exist to anyone but you." She waved, and he began to disappear. "Wait! How do you know my name?!" Shadow Serenade gave an almost-smile and didn't answer. The song called Rain struck its final note, and then he vanished.--Shadow Serenade (TDC & Turtle)
Callum's POV *should he have a POV?*: I fought against Adeline's body weight, trying to get to Willow. Luckily, she was coming closer to inspect A., who had fallen. I always called her A.. Mostly because that's what her father called her. I didn't mean to kill him. It's just what I do. He hit her. I had too. /Don't remind me./ I hissed, mostly at myself, even with knowing A. could hear me. /Huh?/ she asked, slowly getting up and brushing off dirt. /I can't stop remembering things./ I told her. /Same,/ she said. Willow was finally close enough, so I used my power to choke her. She fell, struggling; clawing at her throat. "Callum, stop it...NOW!" Adeline screeched, as some of the people ran to help Willow, and one guy went to Adeline. I quickly attack his brain, searching for information. His name was Gary. It took me a second to choke him too. "CALLUM STOP!" Her scream was bloodcurdling now, so I did. Sometimes she scared me more than I scared her. Gary fell, coughing and hacking. Willow coughed as well, trying to take in harsh breaths. One girl, who I found was Hazel, sauntered over to Adeline, sword in hand. A. wasn't paying much attention, she was attempting to get dirt off her face. /Run./ I whispered to her, through thoughts. /Unless you want me to kill her./ Her response was quick. /Don't kill her. Just help me get out of here./ And with that, A., who seemed terribly exhaust, rose and took off. She bolted through the tress, pushing branches aside. She would be easily tracked if Hazel were to follow us, which worried me. I flew beside her, making sure nothing happened to her. I could never let anything happen to her.---sweet nothings-
