@EmoKitty21 @EeviumZ @Retr.0 @Merciless Medic @PlayfulFox47 @LunarSilvally ------ Kalos was a vast, wonderful region, filled with happy people and pokemon alike. Vibrant cities, plentiful farmlands, whimsical forests and beautiful beaches all throughout for everyone to enjoy. But even in such a lovely region, there lies a dark mystery that the natives didn't like to talk about. The Chamber of Emptiness was a phenomenon in itself. However, what really made it stand out in the minds of Kalosians was the Legend held within its dark walls. Once a year, if a passerby were to enter the Chamber at sunset on the day that splits the year in half, precisely, it is said that they are spirited away to another reality, only a single item left where they once stood in the Chamber. What that reality holds, no one has returned to tell. All that's left of those brave enough to try are items that wandering trainers find and take as their own, unaware of the dark reason to how it got there. The stories have been passed down for generations around the Kalos region, but few have dared to attempt to find the truth. That is, until that time of the year comes again, and a group of bold trainers decide that they have what it takes to take on the challenge and see what's on the other side. Whether out of curiosity, disbelief, or just being in the wrong place at the wrong time, it was almost as if destiny had brought them together to find out how these stories came to be. What they find is more terrifying than any of them had imagined. The legend is true. And now they must stick together and find a way back before they suffer the fate of those who came before them. ------ Rules 1. Follow 'Charm's rules, obviously. 2. Make sure you're using proper grammar and punctuation to the best of your ability. It only takes a few minutes to proofread. 3. Be considerate of other participants and their character interactions. Join in of course! But don't just put an unlikely monkey wrench into an entire buildup between two characters, you know what I mean? Alternatively, do not start an interaction if you don't plan to finish it, leaving a character stuck until a response is given. 4. NO Mary-Sues or Gary-Stus. Give your characters flaws, goals, fears, weaknesses, incomplete story lines, things of that nature. Perfection doesn't exist, so give your character room to grow. 5. Make the effort to post at least a paragraph. 6. 3 characters max, however you can choose any variation of character roles you want. ------ Roles Spoiler: Protagonists These are our main characters, set off on an innocent adventure, only to be thrown into something much bigger than they knew. Together they must protect themselves and each other from the many forces against them within this newfound reality. Each protagonist will lose a special item in the Chamber of Emptiness that keeps them linked with their correct reality. To help them along their journey, each of their respective items will allow them a defensive ability. (for example, but not limited to: healing, foresight or invisibility) The 'entity' wants them. Spoiler: The Lost These are the unfortunate trainers that made it to this other reality, but could never make it back. The 'entity' that took their minds in their relentless struggle to find a way home uses them to break down the willpower of our protagonists, though the severity of their deterioration depends on their own willpower and how long they've been fighting the 'entity's pull on them. These characters will be able to have physical offensive abilities. (for example, but not limited to: spikes, acid fingers or shapeshifting) Their items will be what the protagonists find inside the Chamber to be able to save them. Spoiler: Antagonists Those who set out to break down our protagonists by any means necessary. They work alongside the 'entity' that wants to take control of the protagonists, whispering manipulative thoughts and feelings into the minds of those not yet corrupt by it. The antagonists are meant to be OP, but not unbeatable, so be creative with their abilities and affects on the other characters. The antagonist's items have taken from the Chamber, thus severing their ties to their true reality. They cannot be saved. Spoiler: 'The Entity' The 'entity' is an unseen force that seems to embody the reality itself. A looming darkness that seeks to take whatever wanders into its realm and feed off the misery of its victims. It wants to take the willpower of our protagonists as they travel the other reality to save the Lost, whispering relentless tricks to turn the prtagonists against one another. ------ Character Sheet Spoiler: Character Sheet Name: Age: Gender: Sexuality: Hometown: Appearance: Personality: Pokemon: Character Role: (Protagonist, Antagonist, or Lost) Item / Ability: Extra Info: ------ My Characters Spoiler: Georgie Bernard Name: Georgie Bernard Age: 16 Gender: Female Sexuality: Bisexual Hometown: Lavender Town, Kanto Appearance: Georgie has long, wavy black hair and ocean blue eyes featuring a pair of dark red, thin rimmed glasses. She's fair skinned with a thin but full frame, and stands at an unimpressive 5'5. Tiny but mighty! She wears a red and black horizontally striped t-shirt with a black hooded vest over it, ripped black skinny jeans and white and red converse high tops. (Left is red, right is white. Hey that rhymes!) She also likes to paint her nails in a black and red pattern to match. Personality: Georgie is very energetic, getting excited over silly things. This often makes her very rash when it comes to decision making, never really stopping to think things through before barreling into something. She has little to no patience, and at times can be rather short tempered and even a little rude sometimes. Despite her disposition and stubborn attitude, she gets along fairly well with most people and can be quite friendly. Once she considers someone a good friend and learns to trust them, she's very loyal and protective of them, even if it's hard for her to verbally express such affections. She has the confidence of a leader, but tends to be a little too hard on herself if things don't go right. She can be a little angsty in these situations, but after going off on her own to blow off some steam she's back to her old self like nothing ever happened. She's gotten very good at rolling with the punches. Pokemon: Pepper the Flareon (M) (Partner) Winnie the Quilava (F) Whiplash the Rapidash (F) Axel the Houndoom (M) Ginger the Vulpix (F) Archie the Arcanine (M) Character Role: Protagonist Item / Ability: A pokeball shaped music box with a picture of her family in it. This item gives her the ability of healing both physical and aura related injuries. Extra Info: - She has 2 sisters she loves very much. Her older sister, Ami, and her younger sister, Anika. - She loves fire, loves watching things burn and bend to it's will. That's why she chose to be a fire type trainer. - She lost her parents at a young age, which is what triggered her fiery temper. She learned that being angry was easier than feeling sad, so anger is the only way she knows how to cope with things that upset her. - Her first pokemon was Pepper, an Eevee, which later evolved into Flareon. Being her first, she is very much attached to Pepper, and Pepper to her. More often than not, she lets him travel with her outside his pokeball, as she prefers his company. Spoiler: Caspian Gryphinfeather Name: Caspian Gryphinfeather (but more often than not he doesn't remember it) Age: Forgotten Gender: Fluid; identifies as both || Pronouns: They/Them Sexuality: Demiromantic/Demisexual Hometown: Forgotten Appearance: As a Shapeshifter, Caspian's true form is unknown to most, but when approaching humans he is often seen as a harmless looking tanned human boy, seemingly at the age of 18, with slightly messy dark brown shoulder length hair and unusually vibrant violet eyes. They are almost cat-like in appearance. His eyes tend to give him away in other forms, as the color never changes. He stands at 5'9", sporting a simple oversized black T-shirt and white skinny jeans, both of which are ripped up and ragged. He doesn't wear any shoes, as he lost them a long time ago. Accessories include a silver chain necklace with a pokemon tooth on it that has great meaning, though he can't remember what that meaning is, and a leather bracelet with a silver sun charm on it. Personality: Passive in nature, Caspian is a tired, thousand something old being with very few things that motivate him these days. He's a free spirit, trapped in a small world and losing more of his sanity with each day that goes by. Being a shapeshifter, he enjoys messing with people by becoming their biggest fears, but his intentions are mostly harmless on his own. He is currently being held captive by an antagonist who thinks of him as their 'pet'. Pokemon: Sprite the Shiny Ditto (M) Forest the Delibird (F) Squirt the Buizel (F) Ainsley the Leafeon (M) Character Role: Lost Item / Ability: His item is a piece from a puzzle he's kept for many, many years. His memory is terrible, and every time he tries to put the puzzle together, he freaks out because one piece is always missing, but he can never remember why. The ability it gives him is shapeshifting into virtually anything. Extra Info: - he wears a magic collar that binds him to the antagonist holding him captive. Anywhere he goes they can find him and drag him back. - his memory is fleeting due to his struggles for so long in the other reality and the constant negative influence of the Entity, and he's not all there most of the time. - some of you may recognize a familiar face in his pokemon team (I just really love him okay!) ------ Freewrite Free-for-All! Freewrite Fridays, now renamed to Freewrite Free-For-All, is a fun, creative way to express yourself and your characters in any form or fashion you'd like! Each Friday, we all take a few minutes to write something in any style we want. It's a great way to learn more about each other and the characters we've created!
