1.This is a casual rp. I'm not asking for walls of glorified text but please adhere to casual standards. No switching from third person to first person whenever you feel like it and no one-liners.I would prefer if everyone posted in third person- to keep everyone on the same page. A little mistakes here and there are blindly acceptable if overall decent grammar would be appreciated.
For a certain fee, those who wish to watch the circus may purchase a ticket. The ticket acts as a means of escapism for those with time and money; and the circus is their sanctuary to forget about the troubles of their daily lives and laugh , even if just momentarily. But those that perform in the circus, do they see the circus in the same way?
Perhaps they see it as a way off the streets, but no less than slavery. Perhaps they feel they wouldn't fit anywhere else in society.
The rp will revolve around the members of the circus, certain visitors and the police. Since this is a "dark/biopunk/steampunk" sort of rp, you can expect the performers to not exactly be what you'd expect from a circus. Also, since the circus operates on the outskirts of a small town, naturally it will arise the local authorities' suspicion.
The rp begins with two phases (which are up for discussion), the next one in line will be decided by the participants of the rp, by how the rp flows.
The ringleader collects his frea- I mean "performers"; and they get to know each other and how the circus works
The ringleader brings up a sudden performance! All performers must now be ready to perform at their best within the short duration they are told -or risk being kicked out(or worse.) Meanwhile-The local authorities send a police officer or two to check out this new circus in town.
The charismatic head of the circus, who comes across as a pleasant person to the audience.Only his workers know his true face.
(The ringmaster , played by me, will basically appear from time to time, giving the rp a boost in the right direction whenever needed)
Collectively, they are known as the circus' beloved group of talents.
Individually, they are society's not-so-beloved oddballs and misfits that have grouped together to make the best of their talents.
(Any sort of psychic talents must be discussed forehand)

List of Performers
Cici the Devil- [KireAmaterasu]
Miss Red- [PandaNerd]
The Submariner-[Kaptain Johnson]
The Cheshire Demon-[ReapTheMusic]
The Twilight Twins-[Ythania]
Perhaps watching the performers makes these visitors feel better about themselves. Or perhaps, they sympathize with a/the performer(s)?
Either way, they know the audience is always an outsider to the circus' crew. Unless..one could take a sneak peek inside?

Work hasn't been good for you lately and this circus might just prove to be your next free meal ticket.
Heck, if you open a can of worms on this one -you might even get promoted! The question is, what exactly will you find here and how much of your report will be the truth?
