Attention: I am returning from the dead (Yes, I am now a Zombie!) due to personal reasons. (We are all a bit crazy! Don't go judging my craziness, don't you dare do it!) I know I let my partners down because of this. I am very sorry. But, if any of my partners run across this and wish to continue to write with me, please PM me! In addition to this: If you would like to continue to write with me, you should know that I have decided to wipe my slate clean. I won't continue any stories from where we left off. I will, however, restart them if the idea still peeks my interest. Thank you guys, and sorry again!~ Hello! I go by many names, its610time, 610, dork, weirdo, even the occasional bitch. Eh, take your pick. I'm sure I've been called worse! A bit about me and my writing style? In most cases, I will adapt and give what is given to me. Unless I have absolutely nothing to work with. I can write just a few paragraphs or a ‘novel post’ if needed. I will try to post daily. However, please keep this in mind. I am a slow-paced poster. I like to take my time and really think about my replies, proof read them, revise them. You know, try my best to make them perfect. Haha. If I feel like I have to rush to send a reply to you? Well then, that’s what you’re going to get. A rushed post. Miss spelled words, maybe some incorrect grammar. Imperfection. I don’t like that! Like many others, I am forced to work hard for an underpaying job. (This gal’s got way too many bills to pay.) It takes up a lot of my time. If I do not reply within a reasonable amount of time, please send me a friendly message asking where I am, or just kick me in the booty to snap me back to reality. What i'm looking for in you? I want to look forward to my roleplays. I mean really look forward to it. I want to be checking my phone every five minutes to see if I got a reply. And when I do? I don't want to be disappointed with a reply that lacks creative flow and description. I work hard on my posts and give it my all so that I please my partner. Please, please, do the same. This doesn't mean I need a novel by all means! Just keep me on my toes and most important, let's have fun! I don't want someone to let me control our roleplays. This is a joint thing, so join in! Add your ideas! Surprise me! Oh, I would love you forever if you could do that! -Updates- I am craving some romance! ~Please PM me rather than post here. Your first message should be the first thing to make me want to write with you. Don't just message me telling you would like to write with me. Give me something to work with. Introduce yourself. Tell me what you want to write about, a pairing or a suggested plot/idea. Put your personality into it, make me laugh with your sarcasm. No really, please do. Sarcasm is always appreciated. -I want to try something a little different. Whoever wants to roleplay with me, just send me an intro. Yes, just whatever strikes your fancy. No planning, no plotting, no pairing. If I'm not interested in responding, I'll tell you. Otherwise, we just keep it going. Even develop it a bit more! All I ask is you put 'Introduction Post' in the title. Don't be shy!- Just a few ideas! Feel free to send me yours! I'm just putting up what I'm craving as of now. I have many others I did not post. I also love to brainstorm and create new ideas with my partner. So, if you don't like any of mine. But still think you want to roleplay with me. Let's chit chat a bit! The Auctioned Girl and Her Secrets Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler He was always looking for a journey and for an adventure. A free spirit at heart, despite his background, he wanted only his freedom and seek for it as he traveled through the seas. At one particular country, he arrived, he stumbled onto an auction house and even more, stumbled onto a rare beauty that he had never seen before. Her beauty along with her fierce spirit, even when she was caged like a live animal for display, as she was supposed to be auctioned away. For some unknown reason, he felt himself drawn and decided to bid her for himself. In the end, he won, but what he didn't know was what fate laid between them both ever since she became his 'property', so to say. --What I planned was there is something special about my character that her people both worship (of course I could always go the opposite and make it where they looked down upon it instead. But If I did that, I see it hard to auction?), but fear all the same. (It could be something as simple as looks. Perhaps having vibrant green eyes out of a country with brown or blue. Or adding some fantasy if you would like.) Just like some cultures worship by praying, gifts, or even sacrifice. I envisioned the auction was meant almost like a ritual sacrifice in their own way. In other words for her country, the girls born with her gift were worshiped and granted the greatest honor of the auction. In truth, the girls were degraded and treated poorly behind the scenes. On top of that, the usual buyers for the auction used them as sex slaves or worse. However, my character would have a fierce spirit and strong back to break, making her a nuisance. I would like you to try to set it up as more of a he-wins-the-auction-to-rescue-her thing, gets more than he bargained for, his family doesn't approve, romance, fighting for control sort of thing. It’s something we can discuss further though! To Tame a Lion Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler He was always different. Different as in, he was a true rebel; never taking orders from anyone, never taking shit from anybody and had only been living for himself ever since he could remember. He was considered a 'bad boy'; one young man which every young girls should avoid but couldn't help wanting to, at least, have a taste of him. Then came a day a young woman managed to get his interest, and even better, keep his interest, which is a rare thing for himself and anybody. The Bond Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler The various kingdoms and nations were hardly ever at peace from each other or even from their own people. Strife riddled the lands between the Moon Sea and the Blighted March like rotten crops in a diseased farm where the owner ran off. There are a few multi-national organizations, however, that seem to cross boundaries. The White Oder of Swords, a group of holy knights that hunt down evil wherever they find it, is based in the southern nation of Torimor but has Forts of Swords in every nation except two. One of those, Eidany, is home to the Academy, the protectors of history and maps that holds the respect of every nation and governs every major library. The second where the White Swords are not accepted is the place of their claimed enemy, Amiland, the home of the Black Tower. The mages, the men and women of the Black Tower, gather those from all nations that show promise to learn magic. There they are trained through a rigorous process that either seems them ascend from prospects to acolytes then finally to full brother or sister mages. Everyone from the poorest man to royalty are accepted, regarded all as equals and trained at least to the point where they are no longer a danger to others. They are protected by the Knights of the Ward, also known as the Templar, that both keep the mages safe and keep the world safe from the mages. The warders, the Templar, are considered some of the best warriors in the world, imbued with the bond between them and their wards. This bond, the extra level of consciousness, and the empowered magical equipment that the Templar have access to make them truly the deadliest men in the world… aside from the mages themselves. --Long story short. Your character is a prince and mine a princess. Their fathers are at war, so they consider their selves enemies. However, in the black tower, everyone is treated as an equal. Meaning their title doesn’t exist there. he would be a Templar and mine, a mage. They would be paired together or bonded.

Soon, she found It was better to live in solitude within the forest many feared to venture. He began to invade her territory, ignoring the rumors behind the witch of the woods. Perhaps he was curious, or simply stupid and didn’t believe in superstition. No matter his reasons, he came religiously. Even so, she wasn’t foolish enough to reveal her abilities. Or, so she thought… --I had envisioned her to be a deity, a prophecy that had come to determine the fate of the corruption of humanity. She would be the one to save or destroy mankind if she so chose. However, she was unaware of this fate at this point in the story. Every time she would heal man, a piece of her divinity would escape her and transfer to the man, slowly creating her a human herself. The day he witnesses her magic is the day she saves his life, healing him when he was as good as dead. Up for discussion. The Misunderstood Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler She is gorgeous, affectionate, and has a natural carefree nature. Although her characteristics seemed to place her in the spot light more than not, she was never one to judge those who were misunderstood.

Chronicles of the Prince and the Lacuni Princess |lengthy plot warning| Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler The Lacuni were once a proud and noble people, their domain stretched across all the southlands. From the edge of the great Urutan sandsea in the east to the Hyperborian Mountain range in the west. They were the masters of their homeland, the forest nation, a great land of massive trees and swamps as far as the eye could see that dominated the the landscape in the south. The great jungles of the southlands grew thick and wild, their trees reaching to the sky as tall as some of the greatest of man made castles with their leaves forming a great canopy that bathed the forest floor below in perpetual twilight. The Lacuni's were masters of this realm, perfectly adapted hunters, with ears and eyes that enabled them to see and hear in under the dense canopy and a tail that aided their balance moving quickly through the tangled underbrush. What made the Lacuni civilization so great was not their natural agility and honed senses, but the affinity and love for nature that each and every one of them carried within their hearts. Their life was not one of industry and war, like some other races, but a life of natural harmony and balance that stemmed from their magical attachment to the powerful force of life itself. They were a peaceful shamanic people with a love of mirth, celebration, and feasting, but also they were warriors of fearsome cunning, defending their realm from all threats, using their natural magic bring the very forest to their aid. The Lacuni are an ancient race, excelling in both wisdom, knowledge, and having honor beyond all others. They have inhabited the great forests of the southlands since the beginning of recorded time. The race of men stands in stark contrast to the Lacuni and their peaceful ways. Men first entered the lands of Finsha only one thousand years ago, making great pilgrimages across the Urutan. They arrived in the north to find a land that was wild and fearsome, hostile in every sense of the word. The races and creatures that inhabited the north were ones that didn't share the Lacuni mentality of peace. Great hordes of orcs roamed the plains with their warbands, while giants, trolls, and gnolls occupied almost every crag or cave that the humans came upon for shelter. Those first couple decades were the hardest for mankind, small isolated tibes of humans fought for survival against the wiles and hostility of the land of Finsha in the north. Seeking refuge, a small group of men made their way into the forests of the southlands, they were desperate to escape the dangers of the north. In a chance meeting the Humans came upon the Lacuni who helped them regain their strength. Seeing the wild spirit of their ancient ancestors within humanity, the Lacuni lended aid to the young race of humans who were crossing the Urutan and gave them weapons and guidance for life in the Land of Finsha. So began an inseperable alliance between the Lacuni and man-kind. The tribes of humanity were rallied under the first King of Finsha and they went forth into the north with renewed vigor to tame the hostile lands. Soon enough the Humans had made their own small home amongst the great wilds of the North and it was the Lacuni's hope to steward over the young race and help them become harmonious with the lands like they were. For a time this worked, but something happened that was unexpected. Humanities link to the magical aspect of life was not like that of the Lacuni's. Those few who were magically attuned amongst the humans did not appeal to the life-giving forces of nature, but to the destructive and powerful arcana of the elements. Humanity performed feats of magic that were unknown even to the Lacuni and it became clear early on that the potential of humanity seemed limitless. There were those who were righteous among man-kind, but there were also those who sought power and self-gain, a trait that began to infect the pure and noble Lacuni. This new form of magic was different than the kind that the Lacuni had known since the beginning. It was wild and unpredictable, with streams that delved deeply into dark places. In the right hands it was a tool of great value, but in the wrong hands... it was a tool for chaos and destruction. Many of the Lacuni, interested in this new power, left the natural magic of their ancestors and embraced the raw power of the new arcana. Through this new magic and the passage of time the Lacuni civilization began to fall. Prior to this only the purest of Lacuni could access the natural power of magic through study, meditation, and practice, but now there was a new outlet that didn't require a pure heart and mind. Civil war soon engulfed the southlands and the Lacuni were divided amongst themselves over those who kept the peaceful old ways and those who strove for power through means of darkness. One night a great battle took place in the Lacuni capital in the heart of the forest. All of the elders and nobles were killed and the great king of the Lacuni was slaughtered at the hands of his own brother, who had embraced these new and cruel ways. All hope was not lost, in a desperate act of heroism, one of the King's own guards escaped the castle with the young baby princess of the Lacuni. They ran to the only place that they knew was safe for them... to the north, into the lands of the Humans. The guard brought the Lacuni princess before the human king in secret and begged him to keep her safe and secret until a time when she could lead a revolution and reclaim the throne. Bound by the honor of his ancestors the king accepted and harbored the young girl. He promised to always keep her close at hand to teach her the ways of a true King as her people had taught humanity long ago. She was raised in the palace with the King's own son and was made the queens own hand maiden. She was present at every meeting of the King's court so that she might learn the ways of nobility. It wasn't long after the death of the Lacuni King that the new dark lord, the brother of the King led the armies of the Lacuni northward to attack the humans. The dark lord had no knowledge that the princess had been spared, rather he sought to expand his borders at the expense of humanity. The war lasted fifteen years and it was a bloody struggle unlike anything the lands of Finsha had ever seen before. The acts of the evil Lacuni were so gruesome that the aspect of life that had sustained the race for so long was shattered and the Lacuni began to change in both mind and physcial form. They lost their beauty and gracefulness for something that resembled that of a true beast, they became the Leshrac, a fallen being that was more animal than man (picture not really a Neko... but more like a legit cat or dog man with a full coat of fur. Just an aminal that walks upon two legs). Even the forest itself turned on them, growing wild and hostile, producing deadly creatures and turning against the Leshrac themselves. Kingdom wide persecution spread to all the remaining Lacuni for fear that they would kill humans and they were exiled from the human lands to their old lands in the south. Many traveled there expecting death at the hands of the Leshrac and in most circumstances that was the case. The great human king knew that he couldn't keep the pure Lacuni princess for fear of riots from the people knowing that the king himself was harboring an enemy of Finsha. When she was but a young girl he disguised her and kept her safe in the guise of a young human girl ( a servant). The changing alliances had altered the circumstances and the princess was no longer allowed in the kings court, the King went even so far to keep her away from his own son, who had been her playmate since she had arrived in the Kingdom. Now twenty years after than fateful night when the princess was brought before the king, five years after the end of the war with the Leshrac, things have changed in Finsha. Humanity is now the great beacon of hope and the prowlers to the south are a constant real enemy. The Human prince has grown into an aspiring young commander and the time for his inauguration into manhood has come. Taken from the practices of the Lacuni themselves, the Human right of kings states that a King must yield his powers to his eldest son or daughter in the twentieth year of his life so that the new King might have a mind that caters to the new generation, the future of the kingdom. A prince can only take power if he has taken a young princess of noble descent to be his wife so that they might produce a new heir. This marriage is arranged through a dazzling ceremony where all the human lords from all over the kingdom bring their eligible daughters to the palace for a three day courtship festival. The festival was based upon the ancient Lacuni practices where the King would seek the life giving spirits of his people and use their natural attachment to nature to help choose the best pairing. It was a flawless practice that always resulted in loving relationships, but humans take a different approach. Without a true connection to the aspect of life human marriages are often decided by who can offer the largest dowry to the King. In this sense the arranged marriages are often more political than brought from a place of true love. It's a nerve wracking time for the young prince and with all the nobles coming to the castle, guards and servants are stretched thin. It is by chance that the Lacuni princess is thrust into the service of the Prince during this time as his servant. The days leading up to the ceremony will be hectic and somewhere in there the prince will learn the identity of the his new companion, but not her true link to the Lacuni throne. All things considered, a gathering of all the human nobles and their families would also be a perfect time for the Leshrac to strike. The story would take us on a journey to restore the true Queen to the Lacuni throne and we'd have lots of fun on the way! Unity in races Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler For centuries, humans and elves have been at odds. After a great deal of fighting, the two races simply ended all interaction. That would be fine except for the growing power of the orcs. It seems each day there are new attacks on the human border from the freshly spawned creatures. Now they are manageable, but spies have reported armies massing. What will the human kingdom do? The human king knows his army is vast, but fears it will not be enough. Reluctantly, he reopens talks with their less-hostile neighbors, the elves. Treaties and alliances are discussed, but faith in the papers and handshakes are weak. Something must be done to strengthen it. So it is decided that the oldest human prince will marry the elvish princess. The people of both kingdoms are left in an uproar, but the kings refuse to hear dissent. The marriage of their children is the best way to strengthen the alliance.
