[unica+one [size25 [#ad6f69 「] Loose Plot [#ad6f69 」]]]
[abel [size15 This role play is a very gentle and easy going story. I wanted to take my two favorite things: monsters and coffee shop au's, and put them together! [b Whitebridge Hollow] is a small New England town that holds a very special group of people. This close knit community is charming and quirky. Everyone knows everyone in this town and there are absolutely NO secrets. On top of everything, the residents are all MONSTERS with their own problems and stories.
I want this role play to center around a cute little coffee shop where all of the characters come together and share a cup of coffee and a listening ear.]]

[unica+one [size25 [#ad6f69 「] Character Possibilities [#ad6f69 」]]]
[abel [size15 [b The character possibilities are ENDLESS.] This has less to do with power and magical ability and more to do with character development and soul! Below are some IDEAS, don't feel like you have to play ANY of them. I just want to give some examples [i or you can totally use them.]
[b The Fresh Out of Culinary School Genius] → this character is a bit of a spaz, they are playful and all over the place. They have the fun ability that when they taste a food they can recreate it.
[b Bookstore Owner slash Closet Werewolf] → this character runs the cute little used book store and loves to collect old books but also has a bit of a problem about waking up naked in cornfields after the full moon.
[b The Owner of the Dance Studio is actually a Succubus?] → this character runs the local dance studio and loves to teach salsa and seduce the locals??
[b LITERALLY ANYTHING]
I want this role play to be creative and fun. I have seen people on this sight, including me, get burnt out on role playing because it can be stressful. This is just a playground!]]
[unica+one [size25 [#ad6f69 「] Character Possibilities [#ad6f69 」]]]
[abel [size15 [b Vampires, Werewolves, and Sirens, Oh My!]
Here will be a list of species that are TAKEN. I want creativity here. You can be literally anything. Species will be on a first come first serve. I am thinking that most common species like vampires and werewolves I will let in 2 or 3 unless you really convince me. If you make up your own then people will have to ask YOU for permission to play that species.
[b [u Inferno Demon]] → a demon created from liquidized metal smelted in the fire pits of hell then crafted by Satan himself.
[b [u Alien Girl]] → "Alien Squirrel/rabbit hybrid." Though that is temporary until they discover more about her.
[b [u Dragon]] → A mother fucking dragon, what do you expect.
[b [u Fairy]] → A winged being with magic abilities.
[b [u Oil Nereid]] → Born when a common nereid conceives during a nearby oil spill.]]

[unica+one [size25 [#ad6f69 「] Rules [#ad6f69 」]]]
[b Pictures] → Illustrated/anime. Please make sure the pictures aren't too big or too small. I also don't want overly used pictures either. I am a little picky here. If you need help editing feel free to ask!
[b Literacy] → I want this to be a low key role play. I am asking for at least [b 1,500] characters. Quality over quantity. Don't stress over it. If you are having writers block and can only post 500 characters just message me. I am easy. Just update me on how you're feeling.
[b Posting] → I want everyone to post once first. Then wait for at least two people to post between. If I feel like two people are getting to 'one-on-one' I might change the rule. I won't pester you to post. I might check on you but I won't ever make you feel like you have to post. I get that life can be stressful.
[b Characters] → I really want diversity. If I feel like there are too many girls, I will ask people to double up. I hate to be this way, but I will be picky about who I accept and who I don't. This role play isn't first come first serve. I will probably only accept 8 characters. If I feel like more people are interested I might up it. [i Note: People who are in Sol's Harem will always have a spot in here.]
[b Ideas] → If you have questions or ideas, please feel free to message me. I will be making an ooc thread so there people can talk about ideas and character relationships.

[size16 [font "Indie Flower" A young woman knelt in the large garden that sat behind the Dryad Nursery, picking harmful bugs off of leaves and pulling out weeds. Ridiculously long, blond hair billowed around her small frame, blocking out the morning rays of sunlight as she worked. Her favorite sun hat, the last gift from her “mother”, sat diligently atop her head. The work she was doing, which would have normally taken an hour tops to complete, was taking longer than expected.
[b “Hope!”] Balanos called from the back entrance to the shop. [b “You’ve been at it all morning, come take a break!”]
[b [#fcad03 “Okay!”]] she called back.
Rising to her feet, she used the shop’s apron to wipe the dirt off her hands. When she stepped through the door, the owner was holding out a cold glass of lemonade towards her. She reached out tentatively with both hands, all of her fingers wrapped up in bandages. He noticed this and frowned in concern.
[b “What happened to your hands?”] he asked.
Hope shrugged her shoulders. She honestly didn’t know what happened. It was normal to sometimes get a scratch here or there, but not to the extent she managed to get in one day.
[b “Is this about Kissiae?”]
Her hands shook at the question. It’s been a few days since the other owner of the nursery had started to look paler than usual. She didn’t have the same strength as usual and, last night, she came down with a fever. Hope didn’t know how to process what was happening. It made her think a lot about how she found Mother dead one morning. There was no warning or build up to that moment. Her body just... stopped working. So to see someone she cared about in pain was scary to witness.
[b “The doctor stopped by this morning. It seems like she has the flu that has been going around recently. Have you... never been sick? How about your mother?”]
Hope thought about it for a minute. [b [#fcad03 “No, not that I can remember. I don’t know if I [u can] get sick.”]]
[b “Huh...”] She looked at him, expecting him to look at her in disgust, horror, or something along those lines. Instead, he just seemed curious. [b “Well, I promise you that Kissiae will be okay. She just needs to rest for a few more days to get her strength back. It’s certainly not life threatening.”]
[b [#fcad03 “Really?”]]
Balanos smiled. [b “Really.”]
Hope let out a sigh of relief. So long as what he said was true, then she really could believe that the woman would be okay. Feeling calmer than before, she took a few sips from the lemonade. Though she didn’t need sustenance to survive, the sweet lemon taste was comforting.
[b “Could you stop by the café and grab some pastries for us? I’m sure Ki-Ki would love something other than soup to eat.”]
Hope smiled and nodded her head. [b [#fcad03 “Yeah, sure.”]]
Balanos handed her some money. After taking off the apron, she picked up her satchel, which was heavy with several books that she needed to return to the library, and headed out the door. She double checked the bandages to make sure none of them came loose as she walked. She has yet to hurt anyone with her blood, but being diligent was probably why that hasn’t happened. Everyone in this town was nice and she didn’t want that to change. She considered Whitebridge Hollow home and didn’t want to get chased out like the last place she called home.]]

[center [size14 [font arsenal [b "Make sure you don't cause any trouble, alright Qeto?"]]]]
[center [size14 [font arsenal An odd looking creature looked back over her shoulder, the white hair that seemed like it was a part of her swishing side to side. [b [#F08080 "Ok!"]] She called out, her voice sound surprisingly human. With a little hop the creature skipped over from the bookstore to her favorite place - The Cafe.
This creature was known as Qeto, and unbeknownst to some she wasn't from this area. In fact she wasn't from the planet either. No, Qeto from space, an alien. The people who do know of her origin have tried and failed repeatedly to find out where she is from, by now they all know that she will always refuse to speak about it. Some wonder if it's because she can't remember, others wonder if it's because something tragic happened. Whatever the case Qeto wont tell, at least not yet.
Qeto always arrived at Whitebridge Cafe around the same time, this day was no different. With the same happy smile she always wore the little alien walked in, her redish colored eyes gazing around at the people already gathered there. [b [#F08080 "Arlo~"]] She called out, waving enthusiastically to him. Qeto bounced over to an empty table and plopped herself into a seat, humming happily.
A younger lady happened to walk by her and laughed, "My what has you all happy this morning Qeto?" She asked, though she knew the answer. [b [#F08080 "Love!"]] It was a single word but people knew what it meant, Qeto loved this place. The little alien was still learning how to speak human language, though she often resorted to using her native tongue on accident.
The lady went on her way often giving the girl a pat on the head, something Qeto appreciated very much. While she struggled to understand what everyone was saying one thing she could pick up on was their feelings, and many people enjoyed the happy aura that Qeto produced. Qeto waited patiently, she always got the same thing everyday - she never wanted anything different no matter what she was offered. A cup of coffee with lots of cream and sugar and a strawberry danish.

[center [abel [size15 A handsome male stood behind the bar, he leaned against the mahogany counter top. Drying a mug, he turned it over in his hands before placing it in the cabinet. Wiping his hands on his apron, he turned to the coffee pot. Scooping a cup of coffee beans out of a brown bag, the male dropped it into the grinder and pressed the button down. Once the beans were a fine powder, he dumped it into the pot. Pressing brew, he turned back to the counter to check the display case.
The baked goods were fresh and smelled delicious as he slid the glass door open. Everything was in place. Smiling, the grin revealed a row of sharp canines. Latching the case, he was startled by the chime of the door. In walked a elderly nymph he knew very well.
[#990000 [b "Welcome Greta, can I get you the usual"]] He greeted.
[#626262 [b "Oh Arlo, yes please."]] Said the old woman with a soft smile.
Arlo grabbed a clean mug and filled it with the fresh bitter liquid. Pouring in some cream, he stirred in three sugar cubes and handed it to the woman. With a shaky hand, the woman took the cup and took a seat. The shop was relatively quiet besides several of his regular customers. Eugene, an elderly veteran who always sat in the high chair at the window, always ordered a black coffee and a scone. Jaycie, a young werewolf, liked to sit on the coach and read the paper and drink a chai latte with two pumps of gingerbread syrup.
After about an hour, another regular customer walked in. It was his housemate Mika, a were-tiger that worked as a historian.
[#990000 [b "Hey Mika, you were gone when I got up this morning. How are you?"]] Arlo questioned.]]]

The feline had woken up early this morning. He didn't have curtains on his windows because he loved to wake up to the natural light. His usual routine was wake up, shower, water his plants, go for a walk, and then of course, stop for coffee.
Trotting up to the front door of the Whitebridge Cafe, Mika let out a sigh. Inside, he spotted Arlo at the front counter. Waving, Mika nodded.
[#cc6699 [b "Hello, Arlo I am well. May I have a cup of Earl Grey?"]] He asked in his awkwardly formal way.
Arlo smiled and shook his head, [#990000 [b "Of course, take a seat and I will bring it to you."]]
Mika picked a spot by the window and pulled out a book and began to flip through it. Pushing his glasses up the bridge of his nose, he rested his chin on his elbow. Just as he was getting into his book, a mug was pushed into his peripheral vision. Averting his attention, he saw Arlo taking a seat across from him.
[#990000 [b "Here you go dude, I needed a break anyway."]] Arlo said with a sigh. Leaning back, he stretched his arms behind him.
Mika put his book down and took a sip of his drink and smiled. [#cc6699 [b "Thank you. How is work going?"]] The tiger asked as he gently placed his mug down on the table.
[#990000 [b "Eh, it's slow. Do you work today?"]] Arlo exclaimed taking a swig of his own coffee.
Mika glanced at his watch face. It read [b [i 11:28]]. [#cc6699 [b "Yes, I go in at noon. I needed a drink first of course."]]
