CLOSED FOR THE MOMENT. READ LAST POST.
(POORLY PHOTOSHOOPED I KNOW.)
The note ends there. You regard the letter with interest… somebody had clearly intercepted it, it was ripped to shreds and the owl that delivered it had collapsed upon delivery, feathers disheveled with a broken wing. Dedicated though it was, it appeared that wouldn’t save the creature as its labored breathing slowly faded to a halt. You knew what the letter said was true, your parents had told you of the BWA, they themselves had gone there before, and they were happy to hear of its arrival. As they examined the letter, you look with pity upon the owl that had changed your fate with its determination. If the bird hadn’t made it, you wouldn’t be going. They don’t give second chances at Black Water, and you have been eagerly awaiting your letter for several years. Nonetheless, its arrival disturbs you. Who tried to stop you from attending? The letter was clearly a victim of attempted thievery, and it looked like they had attempted to slice the legs feet but merely clipped the letter itself, ripping off the final portion of the letter that included the names of the different text books you were supposed to receive.
You listen to your parents murmurings silently, giving no sign that you’re listening as you slowly stroke the owl, straightening out its feathers. You would bury it later, for right now you were more interested in your parents panicked whispers. “An assassin, though? At her age?” your mother asked in an unwavering voice. “There’s no doubt.” Your father answers with a sigh. “You were the same age when you received your letter… and me.” He finished with a sideways glance at you. You return his gaze with a frightened looking one of your own. “It’s decided, then.” Your mother finishes, speaking clearly for you to hear.
“You need a guardian.”
So there’s your prologue. The idea is simple: You (A girl btw plax) are some kind of creature. You can use any creature you want, you can even make one up. Want to control the elements? Mind control? Whatever, you got it. But there is one slight problem: You’re still a kid, and your control of your powers is good, but not great. You’ll have good parts and bad parts, but you aren’t invincible.
So basically, your character is of royal background, your mother is a queen among her kind, and your father, like a knight, is exactly what my character will be: a guardian. Guardians can be anything (Though I already know what I will be myself) and their sole purpose is to protect their clients. That isn’t to say our characters HAVE to be together 100% of the time, but mine will be keeping a “eye” on yours, so that he can do his job. The odd part is this: Our characters are fated to meet. We are born on the exact same day at the exact same time in the exact same place. We know of each others existence, but we do not know each other as a person.
So there’s your plots and whatnot, now here is the inevitable part of every interest check in existence: requirements.
So as the title says, this is advanced. I’m advanced and I want you to be as close to it as possible. I don’t mind casual as long as you can provide me with more than a paragraph at a time.
-Grammar requirement is the same thing as always: good, doesn’t have to be perfect.
-If you can’t reply at least once a day, I’d prefer if you moved on. I like roleplaying, I like writing, and I’ve done this plot before. I like it. A lot. Reply a bunch.
-Stick with me or go away. Like I said, I’ve done this plot before. The person ditched out on me right as it got good. Don’t do this.
-Sense of humor is always nice to have, I know I have it, I’d appreciate it if you did too. Drama is necessary, we all know that. Just don’t make it your sole reason for existence.
-Be O.K with cursing, cause I’m doin’ it. Shit.
-ROMANCE. This is mature. Smut can or cannot happen. We’ll have to discuss this in P.M more. And yes, I’m O.K with fade to black.
-I’m ok with using a thread to play this in, in fact I’d probably prefer it because of eMail notifications. Obviously due to the mature thing, the thread will fade to black, and provided we’ve decided to have smut in it, we’d continue in PM until we’ve finished the scene.
-Maintaining contact would be cool, I’ll add anybody on Skype or whatever messenger you want as long as there’s an app for it. I spend a lot of time on my phone and it’s always with me, so I get eMails and I.M’s through it so I won’t forget about you. (But if this is fun enough I promise I’ll be refreshing every 20 minutes hoping you’ve replied. Not kidding I actually do that.) *THIS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT, JUST A COURTASY. *
So that’s about it. P.M me if you have any questions/are interested, or post them here if it’s more convenient for you.
(Also: I’ll be making the first post, so let that be a burden off your shoulders if it is one. :])
