What do you do when
the world ends
It is white. White walls press in, claustrophobic; a white ceiling looms overhead; clean white tiles lurk out of sight. A clock ticks, the glassy face flickering as if uncertain of itself. The room is still except for that monotonous clockwork heartbeat, silent between each mechanic breath as if waiting for it to stop.
You are sat in the middle of it, on a grey plastic chair whose legs have been peeled of their plastic covering long ago and now stand bare and rusting before the world's scrutiny.
I don't know if you remember me, but I remember you.
You were younger, then, much younger. In the bell jar you stood, delicate childish hands pressed against the glass in awe of the new world around you. You had never been so high; I could tell because your legs were shaking slightly and your breath was a quick fog against the glass. When they sentenced you to death for your crime, they didn't realise you hadn't even lived.
I couldn't stop them from killing you. That was beyond my power, even then. So, once the gas left your system, I gave you the gift of life.
It has been a long time, I know - years. I haven't changed.
The world you knew has.
We may be the only ones able to right it.
I don't know where you have been, what you have done, but I speak from what I have seen with my own eyes. Our society is dead, rotten - so far gone now that the maggots of flies have long since been and gone, and we stand in but a mere skeleton of what it was. Oh, these people look real, alive, to you - but what do you know of necromancy? It was with these same magics that I rose you from your eternal slumber - look not so surprised, my dear - and with these same magics, these others are animated, as you were.
Unlike you, however, their masters gave them no freedom. While I allowed you to make your own decisions, these puppets of black magic are little more than marionettes, controlled by several with ulterior motives, and these answer to others. For now, though, let us worry about the puppets, because they can see.
We have crawled by on electricity and macros, unaware that among our number were imposters. The Council of Lords have been bitten and the wound has festered, leaving in its wake a death toll greater than the third War of the World. Nobody of any importance has noticed; even you pale as I say this. Perhaps you think I'm mad. Maybe you believe me. Whatever you are going to say or do, I will embark on this mission regardless.
Take away the microchip and we are left with a shell - many people, myself included, would be rendered powerless. There are others, such as you, who will not be affected should something similar happen - and all of them must be found. Every single person who is not bionic, every living soul who still shines without the taint of the Restless, they must all be saved. You and I are the only ones who can do this task now.
You and I alone. My Rules:Literacy level: Grammatically correct, good spelling, engaging writing, please. If you're not sure on the meaning of a word, search "define: <insert word here>" on Google and you'll know how to use it better.Content: Mature. I'm not talking cyber sex, I'm talking cussing, blood, guts, gore and horror, with the odd smutty joke to lighten the mood.Context: In case you haven't already guessed, this is set far in the distant future, but in an alternate reality where magic and science can happily co-exist. Feel free to make as much shit up as you like, as long as there's no contradiction.Posting: I'm not fussy, here. I'll usually do between 600-1200 words (words, not characters!) but am capable of more. However, as long you give me something to which I can respond, I don't care how much you write. If you post something that isn't worth my time, for whatever reason - terrible syntax, nothing to work with, or completely incapable of moving the plot forwards even a little - I'll remove you without warning and wipe the RP clean. As for posting times: whenever you can and have the inspiration to do so. There is absolutely no rush, so take your time and work on it. Applying: Just whizz me a PM entitled with whatever the hell you want. Put in it whatever you deem important information for me to know. It will not be first come, first served; if you're interested, make a character that will interest me, too.A little bit of information:
I'm open to almost anything. Homosexual, bisexual, heterosexual - if the romance is convincing, I'll partake in it. Please note that I'm not by nature romantic, and this roleplay is not intended to be the 'enduring love' kind. Multiple characters are more than likely to crop up, and, if this generates enough interest, I'll consider opening it up into a group RP. Picture wise, again, I'm open. Abstract art, photography, illustrated - if it shows your character the way you want, who am I to judge? I draw the line at the typical scene/emo/facebook photos and pictures of characters from mangas/animes. They may be easy to come across, but we're not writing fan-fiction. Concerning characters, do whatever you like. Have magics from far away lands, own weapons with powers beyond our ken. If I think I'll need to remind you about realism, however, I will not ask you to join the roleplay.
As for the beginning, feel free to have your character react however you want - perhaps they think mine is mad and go their own way, or call some form of security. Whatever happens, I'll find some way to recruit you and there is no rush into the main plot line. It'd be great if we could talk this before we begin.
I look forward to reading any responses I get.Borders are edited from this source photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/80255168@N00/3121229844/I take no credit for it, as it belongs entirely to its owner.
