The longer you stay the more you forget - Information website
I know we've already started, but we haven't gotten far yet ^^ and we're still on the 4th page. Things have slowed down a bit and to remedy the situation we decided to open up a new interest check. Currently, we are in need of more people if any of you are interested feel free to post on the page or shoot me a PM. If you need more information just go here. Also, the IC is on advanced but it's pretty much high-casual to advanced. We don't expect blocks of texts just a three paragraph minimum.
We're looking for people who can post at least once in three days and who are willing to communicate with others through the OOC.
- Nowhere -
Have you heard the rumors about the midnight train?
You haven't? That's a pity, why don't you take a seat then, friend? I'll tell you all about the midnight train to Nowhere.
People say that once a year on New Year's eve an odd train of fleeting stars and neon lights rolls into the station. They say that if you see the midnight train, you'll find whatever you're wishing for inside it. All you have to do is believe, toss logic to the wind and hop aboard. It sounds simple enough, appealing as well, but just not believable, don't you agree? They say the train is full of quirky passengers that aren't even human, I've heard of rabbits with rifles, mermaids with voices as heavenly as the harps of heaven and of mice who sing and ask for spare change. It almost sounds like a wonderland made by some bored kid, eh? I don't really believe it, but I won't judge you if you do. Still, the thought of getting what you wish for without losing so much as a penny is just great, right kid?
They say that people are lured into the train by what they wish for the most and that those who do get on the midnight train are whisked away to a land unlike our own, to a place called Nowhere. They say that in Nowhere the buildings stretch infinitely towards the construction paper night. Nowhere is supposed to be some magical place they say. A place where trains zip through the sky at the speed of light. They say the trains in Nowhere are so fast that each time one goes by lightning flashes through the sky. People say thunder is the roar of the engine that is never fast enough, so it manifests itself into thunder and crackles and booms because being left behind is painful and it knows that it will never catch up to lightning.
It's an interesting rumor, I'll have to admit that, but the existence of a place called Nowhere...it's rather silly, kid.
Despite how weird it is I'll have to give it credit. That rumor has been spreading like wildfire for the past three years, and it gets worse when New Year is just around the corner. From time to time people have claimed to have seen the strange train, but I'm not sure I believe them. The local comedian who lives down the street said that last year he went to the station at midnight with his girlfriend. He's usually telling tall tales to get attention, but when he told us his story he actually looked afraid and a part of me just wanted to believe him. The logical side told me it was just some sort of hoax though and well, you know what they say, right? To see is to believe.
He told us that the train had arrived at exactly midnight and that it was different from all the other trains. He said he saw a rabbit inside, and that it was using a laptop of sorts, in fact he said he caught a glimpse of the passengers and that none of them were normal. We asked him for proof, like a photo or something but he said he was too scared to think straight and that he immediately grabbed his girlfriend by the hand and ran out without so much as looking back. I...I wonder if such an unbelievable tale can be true. I called him a liar and he got all flustered, in fact he started sputtering challenges and I couldn't stop myself from smirking. The idiot turned an even darker shade of red and I forgot what happened next but he dared me to see it for myself, on New Year's eve.
I don't have time for silly shenanigans, I've got a job after all and a wife to look after...what's that kid? You're gonna check it out for me and take a picture? Eh, don't get your hopes too high I doubt you'll see anything special. Fine, fine, if you insist. Just take care of yourself, yeah? Lots of crooks out so late at night, so make sure you bring a friend or two with you. Oh yeah, send my regards to the midnight train that leads to nowhere.
