when ur trying to write but ur jamming to queens

BEST FRIEND: from elementary to senior year, his area's school had an escalator system, thereby resulting in a lack of new faces. only, on the first day of his second year of high school, their school had three whole new transfers for their grade, and for the slightest second gyeon had contemplated expanding his friendship horizons. except by the time gyeon had even turned to look, a gym bag was dropping onto his table heavy enough to shake it and gyeon was forced to smack his clingy relative pain in the ass with his hefty maths textbook - the same pain in the ass that clung to him like a mote of dust, always drifting back no matter how much you swiped at it, and he was a veritable puppy. a puppy that'd followed him ever since gyeon had wordlessly shuffled next to him by sheer coincidence during a group activity in fourth grade, eyes sparkling whenever he cracked a grin and leered an awful joke, darted just out of reach, jumped gyeon from behind with hands on his shoulders and positively shrieked when gyeon elbowed him back, stealing his water bottle and taking long incessant sips just because gyeon really did not appreciate anyone touching his things, much less smearing their spit over them. he drooled over gyeon's books after falling asleep in class, flailed and whined to him over the phone, simpered and treated him to meals whenever gyeon got mad, and he was a puppy that was a bit of an accidental damn genius that skipped two grades and wagged his metaphorical tail every time gyeon accidentally laughed at something he did. at this point they'd grown apart, lives mapped by circumstance and separated by all the crossroads that stood in their paths, but even with his web of newfound friends sometimes eun hit gyeon up by phone to call him dearest and gyeon could hardly bring himself to call back whenever he missed it because that little toerag spoke like a serpent and gyeon couldn't believe that he missed him and his antics - opening doors for grannies, taking his snapback off and smiling so warmly at gyeon's parents in greeting - so fervidly. get him out.

OTHER CLOSE FRIENDS: introversion doesn't make it hard to meet people that you like; it only makes it harder to meet people, and often it's the ones that poke their heads in and dig their arms into his armpits while wailing that he can't waste his life like this, that are the ones that stick. he'd be fine without knowing a cluster of people, is what he tells himself, though it is just a bit hard envisioning at what points he would even step outside if not for love calls to go out to some restaurant or to see a movie, and maybe karaoke after - university friends and others he'd met one way or another, friend of a friend or by happenstance, like lexi commandeering both his kitten and his couch as he resignedly turns on the vacuum cleaner and pokes her feet with the nozzle to get them out of the way. often he keeps something of an unconventional crowd, but they're all just stumbling and feeling out life, and he doesn't have that much room to talk.

ACTIONS AROUND PARTNER: initially gyeon couldn't seem the furthest from affectionate, and that translates to some extent into truth. he's stiff, lagging when it comes to the expression of anything deeper than small talk, and in public after copious evaluation of everyone else's eyes and the surrounding environment he's likely to not move even an inch - but he's earnest, melting like chocolate with secretive little smiles where no one else can see, the slightest of hums and tapping their foot with his. to him, the subtle actions matter most, and even just sitting across one another at a small noodle joint is enough to satisfy him, but he does get moods where he likes to tease, just a little, leaning in with that tiny bright smile of his, wrapping his arms around them and snugly tucking his chin onto their shoulder, hand moving to brush something out of their hair.
ACTIONS AROUND FRIENDS: gyeon lets himself smile and settle in the background while all the others talk, and when he laughs he has to hold onto someone beside him for support, rocks on his feet to stabilise. on the other hand he keeps a tab on the mood, and if there's a joke at any of their expenses he quiets, watches, lightly claps his hands on their shoulder and asks - quietly - if they're okay. he takes care of them, cleans up their messes while they're busy hooting and chanting in the front, and he groans whenever they collectively suggest doing something dumb. he takes care of his younger friends but shakes his head at their bad decisions and placatingly pats their head if ever things go awry. with friends around his age, there's a significant shift in how casual he acts, and he'll start playing along louder, brighter, cackles escaping that would have been covert smirks otherwise.
ACTIONS AROUND STRANGERS: purely polite; noticeably distant, giving only slight smiles and requisite little laughs during any exchanges. attentive to their actions and responses, he startles at any physical contact and skirts around people with a regulated but almost absentminded wide berth between them.
ACTIONS AROUND OWN CHILDREN: gyeon is a mirror of his own parents; gentle, mostly, but stern when it comes to the education of numerous life lessons if just a tad too lenient in giving them whatever they wanted. living a life of somewhat perfunctory self-absorption, if only in the sense that most of his attention was paid on monitoring and regulating himself and his own actions, makes it hard to recognise what he should actually do when bringing up someone else, and he'd be the stiff, uncertain father until the moment his child gurgled and flung their stubby arms in his direction - and even then. change is hard for him, a major source of stress, particularly with the recognition that anything he said, or did, could entirely shape someone's identity - he acts gingerly, a little too carefully, and listens deeply to what they tell him because, after all, listening and evaluating is what he does best.
ACTIONS AROUND OTHER CHILDREN: gyeon likes children, despite his uncertainty with how to handle them; because he doesn't take to the role of a comedic uncle all that well, kids aren't necessarily attracted to him and his muted presence, but looking at them he's all fond smiles, crouching down to their level and flustering to catch them whenever they stumble.
ACTIONS AROUND FAMILY MEMBERS: gyeon hurries to set the table, to clean the dishes, to turn the lights off when they're not needed. he flicks his sister's temple and complains about her not doing her assignments, and rubs his temples at the proposition of a big family gathering but shows up all courteous smiles, pressing his hands together, radiating diligence and a perfunctory level of affection. maybe it'd be different if he had an older sibling, but being the one typically allotted to be in charge he keeps everything functioning at this point out of sheer routine.
ACTIONS AROUND "OPPOSITE SEX": having a strict, conventional (gender-coded) upbringing is never always good. he acts with a sense of obligation, more polite, attentive, except when he's playing the model replacement son or a poster child in which case he's all too embarrassingly good at hamming it up with smiles, the dreadfully overplayed brand of chivalry in opening the door, offering his seat, taking their hand. if his parents weren't grooming him into becoming the most isolated hamster in the universe, they were training him into being the nephew that none of their acquaintances had ever had, and if it was a front it never mattered enough to be asked about. he doesn't know how to talk to females around his age. normally he simply doesn't.
ACTIONS AROUND AUTHORITY FIGURES: he defers - and it depends on whether they're ones that he respects, in which case he practically shakes from nervousness in trying to keep himself together, or those that simply bear titles, wherefore he hushes but isn't nearly so self-conscious from how much it matters to him to give a good impression. often it's to the extent of idolisation, and it's enough to just stay there and hang onto their words, eyes wide, nodding along.
ACTIONS AROUND UNDERLINGS: his place isn't one from which to look down on others; the most he does with any authority is finding his underlings cute, hooking them under his arm and keeping a close eye on them. maybe it's affectionate - maybe it's intent, watchful. sometimes he just likes taking care of them, overloading them with advice and making sure they're doing fine, keeping up, struggling the way all of them have to.

ACTIONS AROUND THOSE WHO CHALLENGE HIM: the only tight ship gyeon runs is on the matter of not being belittled for his baby face; anything else thought-provoking merits discussion. he lets them talk, but begins to fidget when there's mounting tension, and it's a bad habit that he seeks a quick and painless resolution whenever one of the parties is truly incensed over logical settlement. he isn't argumentative, and hasn't ever been - when it's a problem between others he scarcely intervenes, but when he's too deeply involved to remain invisible he tries to settle the atmosphere first. diplomacy first, though he can come close to losing his cool if any dispute gets too far and difficult to control.
ACTIONS AROUND THOSE WHO IRRITATE HIM: he isn't one to throw bad words. he gives cold shoulders or placid hums, but more often he's somewhat good at compartmentalisation; gyeon clings with all his strength to any modicum of patience, always in favour of rational behaving, and he's been brought up well enough that he can tolerate saying a few words without pushing himself too hard. it takes much to irritate him - mostly the issue is when people start saying uncomfortable things. he also can't stand it when things get messy
ACTIONS AROUND THOSE WHO NEED HELP: though he does hold a reputation for being trustworthy and one out of twenty the only one in the room with his head on right, gyeon flusters in times of emergency like a fish out of water when he's out of his element. he leans on logic, learning from past experience, and when he doesn't have the slightest idea of what to do gyeon can only hesitate, stare, then stammer over the most plausible bullshit he can bring to mind. only for things that are more his speed can he remain settled, though he always does put a lot of thought into it, acting deliberately and carefully so he doesn't make any mistakes in hindsight.

waves wildly!!! hello dsfkfm im .... so sorry for the mess

info from skype compiled + bit more!! i still have stuff in my documents but this is ugly enough already and ill... add it in when ive fixed whats here already?? lots of things r probably repeated and Everything needs to be cleaned up yuck kill m


THESE KIDS ARE MY EVERYTHING NOW I GUESS

technology kingdom — ionia

  • Incredibly advanced, focused on cybernetics among other sciences, has shouldered the normalisation of human modification in order to improve overall function and cognitive skill. Their purpose is to enhance life and to thoroughly investigate the quality of it in the form of understandable and consistently evolving scientific data, and to stretch their own capabilities.
  • Best databases about anything there is conceivably transcribable in life protected TO THE DEATH you want it? Go choke the king first or smth
  • Widely known for their discipline, otherworldly technology, perhaps questionable methods, deific boredom leading them to experiments that come at a pricy, hushed cost, hypothesising how to exceed one’s own limits via research. Technology has developed in leaps and bounds and ultimately the kingdom throughout time has been born and raised in a zeitgeist that values intelligence, breakthroughs, evolving one’s own limitations, in an age vastly ahead of any other kingdom. Value is therefore hardly placed on emotional matters as opposed to single-mindedly targeting the expansion of scientific knowledge. We raise scientists not losers
  • Those in the upper echelons of society almost indiscriminately have had extensive modifications; enhancement of certain traits, prosthetics with functions that approach the level of holograms…
  • Government uses technology as a mode of control/endless surveillance; maybe kind of despotic? 1984 vibes? yk?
  • Those in the lower tiers of society have little to no access to any of the modifications without money & few resources for anything else either, and purges are held annually by the government to collect subjects for experimentation – tension within the kingdom
  • However, as it is separate from the rest of the modern world and thus has developed differently with a drastically lesser recognition of its morals, genetic engineering has been given the freedom to expand significantly more, and many within the kingdom have willingly traded their own limbs for prosthetics that have a number of other functions. There are fears that they breed their own infertile race probably??
  • me, joke: i'm trying to think abt how my kingdom being science based would work in terms of jobs. like not everyone can be a researcher. different aspects of applying science mb like just teachers and also ppl that do the dirty work w gathering samples uh im dumb. i was thinking mb there's an elite team of scientists or smth that's closely involved w the ruling party ??? and my char was a part of them?
    asyli, woke: maybe there could be a sort of test, this is meant to be an elite program so they would only take the intelligent of the intelligent. i bet the school system is beyond rigorous and maybe both the ruling party and those already among those elite scientists have a sort of test where they narrow out the genius and from there separate them from society and engross them in nothing more than scientific material? the others simply go out into mainstream society? (bless u asyli)
  • i feel that the scientific based kingdom would really try to come to a head with what makes humanity really?? like the border b/w our humanity and all the endless possibility of ~science and i'm not sure how that would impact their behaviour as a whole bc scientists irl do get bored and play around but maybe the power they have with all their tech makes them more dangerous ?????
  • scientists do value cooperation and collaboration but there are still those that are individualistic and there is backlash due to contrary voices and rly lots of disputes abt different discoveries probably and uprisings and altogether No One is Safe in Technology Kingdom but kind of in a subtle way when ur entirely unaware of the mess tm that happens out of the publics eye.

lucina __ (leci?) (demikhov???? puppy head man??) galilei? scientia?

  • my boy is prob a bit like bris in that he's pretty isolated but doesnt?? really want company bc what do u do with emotions help him he's just Serious and Quiet and only ever curious abt extending his research
  • understands theoretically almost everything that goes on in the brain but tbh that doesnt do a darn thing when he tries dealing w other people? / too INTENSE abt things he stares from a distance and only needs to blink abt once every three minutes he just doesn't understand really others' situations .. almost creepily quiet
  • really detached from social situations? his views on everything like sexuality and attachment is like eh  and he does still have ~Emotions but living so long in an environment solely based around going through the motions 100 times, failing 100 times, maybe making a tiny tiny breakthrough, having a fixation of the slightest of details, rinse and repeat, everything else but his research and keeping a rly frickin firm hold of his own discipline and figuring things out one by one scientifically has taken a backseat and at this point just??? faes discomfort??? hmm. must keep observing. he hardly puts much stock in the marriage itself and i cant imagine how theyd be made to interact tbh?? fae needs a hug but science char cant touch him bc sdfsjdm Get Him Clean and hes awful rly but on e day..... he'll learn..
  • idk prob has like 40/40 vision and a frickin laser eye or smth and is unable to sleep bc of it thanks science
  • kind of a genius ig? one of the elite scientists in his kingdom focused on technology and furthering their knowledge of the world and etc and the backbones of the kingdom lie on human experimentation which is how they kno so much? science boy knows theoretically abt the experiments but he's never seen it in person or witnessed the effects so his morals seem rly skewed as he's in general also kind of .... lost w how to express his emotions? rly serious and quiet. he learns eventually but it does take a while for him 2 integrate and otis help him
  • Shaped by his environment in that he openly views others detachedly, almost scientifically – definitely analytically – in order to understand them the way he knows best. Highly adaptable just as he is in real life; doesn’t truly connect emotionally to the experiments bc it’s the way his kingdom functions and the way science ever happens, through experimentation, but meeting Fae, coming across documentation of the experiments undertaken during the war, the true gruesomeness of Ionia, etc… Big Crisis
  • my character looking back on all his kingdoms experiments and rly comprehending the nastiness of ppl and fhfhd their husbands teach him & fae how to deal w emotions Teach them what i s love / ig he never really would have questioned it?? only until he saw firsthand its effects bc regularly the tested specimens are so detached from the surface like only found in names and data and not even names but sometimes numbers tbh but meeting fae and rly getting to see the fruit of everything terrible his kingdom encourages - Dramatic Self Awareness and character development
  • Has no definite view on sexuality except one of detachment as he generally only observes the body and investigates its workings? Also has no particular view on relationships, however cannot exactly bring himself to partake or really understand romance or how to even really deal with his emotions bc he is a robot.
  • Reclusive, a creature of comfort but still with a thirst to learn & understand – reserved in terms of social interaction.
  • Logical, rational, speculative – overthinks often, hardly talks because often his mind runs too fast for him to articulate and otherwise is relatively inexperienced with dealing with others
  • One of the most sophisticated __, a pioneer of research, subjected to a large and unthinkable number of incredibly precise operations for enhancement of various traits (?). Experimented on himself? Except for what is physically impossible to do… Not really experimentation in the severe meaning of the word but????????????? idk how deep i want to go?

also i want to keep this, also from asyli : "i bet the discussion of trying to decide important members of each one's society is a struggle because the kingdoms are losing someone who is precious to them, who is precious to their cause and it's a hard thing to do. they're giving up people who stood for something in the current time during the war and it's probably pretty damning"
"can you imagine your character finding the paperwork that was used on the patients tortured during the war and finding out that fae had been one of the test experiments and just... reading over exactly what had been done to him and i'm emo"

/crashes in because my LU HAN CHAR WILL JOIN THIS SCIENCE KINGDOM.... PLANT NERD LOL
uhh, yeah so all i really have so far is that he's fascinated with the effect of different plants on other organisms... mostly humans though. he's really into medicine, and figuring out what chemicals in plants can be used to help cure/prevent disease... but he is equally interested in which poisons (found in plants) can cause the most suffering, the most painful deaths. his ethics are a bit questionable tbh.... like, if a sickly person goes to him, he seems kind, as he will give them the medicine they need! but if given the opportunity... or if he knows they really won't live for much longer, no matter how much medicine they take or treatments they undergo... he'd much rather experiment on them and cut them open and whatnot because they'd be more "useful" that way... 'there's still use for the terminally ill, and that's to use them in experiments since they'll die soon anyway' is his thinking. he prolly thinks they should feel honoured that they get to sacrifice their bodies for science.

also, maybe in the future he'll become interested in animals as well, but for now his focus is plants... botany...

whats organisation!! is it edible!!! its just a bunch of dot points like what you have sdkjfm but thank you!! still need to clean it up tho.. breathes loudly. .

YES AHH HELLO I LVOE THIS MORALLY AMBIGUOUS PLANT BOY!! omg he's so interesting. im also v sorry for how much i wrote in these following paragraphs sdfkjsdf. i really like the idea that one of the scientific kingdom's defining traits, along with ofc being known for its advancement, is the fact that ppl outside are scared of how?? intense they are about wanting to break things down into little understandable bits? like i can imagine tianyous kingdom would be like "things go this way and thats p awesome!! harmony!" and bri's kingdom focused around their religion would be like "things are meant 2 be this way yk and it's all g" and fae's kingdom is like "who cares u live or u die" and so one thing that lucina & your character have in common is that they just wanna find stuff Out and Learn and tbh in the science kingdom, what are boundaries?? when it comes to learning things?
which means that they're not the most morally sound and i also think thats a rly interesting point of ~conflict~ and dang...... plant boy is twisted rIP but in this kind of environment it fundamentally makes sense!! because actually no one from science kingdom can be trusted just send them all out into space just . send them away

im not sure if my char has a specialty yet!! like idk?? would he be an inventor? experimenting w chemistry? ? psychology? what is he doin (tho i am leaning towards psychology as it would be interesting esp when he deals w his husbands and learns abt them and... but that's a sidetrack rip.) i do think that he wouldn't actually Get It when it comes to other people feeling horrified abt the experiments that go down in science kingdom because none of them actually living there have been subjected to any other thought process so @ plant boy's experiments, lucina's always simply like ... "well ok, it's research. tell me some stuff u learn when you're done." though since i imagine your char's experiments on humans would be a little more hush hush, and lucina wouldn't be privy to the specifics (unless they were scientist buds?? that would be pretty cool!), it wouldn't actually strike him much until he saw the scars it left on ppl - he's not good at heart, just kinda one-track minded, preoccupied with his own work and either way v geared to the way his kingdom thinks. i would!!! rly love to see them interacting!!!

cries bc these borderline evil kids need a redemption arc but will they get it,

science kingdom is just... they want to know things. they claim they want to "better the human race" (who knows what that means tbh), but really... a lot of them are prolly just hungry for knowledge. like, people say "there will always be things that science can't explain" and they'll just be all "well.... u just didn't try hard enough lol". as for morals and ethics... as my luhan char would say: "everything requires sacrifice, and some sacrifices are just greater than others." Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

ye, plant boy is just... like he has morals... more like had... they're prolly locked away in some dusty chamber in the back of his mind. morals... he doesn't really care much for them, tbh. he's interested in a lot of things besides plants - including the humanities... but only in the "but why do they think like that? what provokes such thoughts?? how can i find it and manipulate it? ??" type of way. as for emotions... he has them, but like lucina, they are... extremely suppressed. he probably saw them as a hindrance and forced himself to bury those too. :/ however!! he appears to display emotion... but are they genuine?? probably not. he's just a really good actor.

and ooh!! lucina's specialty could totally be psychology... or biopsychology... or both, because why not?? and... they should definitely be friends... or whatever's closest to it given that they're both pretty emotionally detached... maybe they say they're just "fond of each other's company" because they simply understand each other well, or whatever and leave it at that. and... since lucina's probably one of the higher scientists (he'd probably be one.. if they considered important enough to shove into the marriage?), he probably would know about the human experimentation.

also... i just had some thoughts about the way things work. maybe the general population could just be like normal people, like the rest of the world... probably a bit smarter than the rest of the world's population, but... yeah, by the science kingdom's standards, they're average. genetic engineering could be a huge thing in the science kingdom.. so maybe, to produce more intelligent minds, the scientists attempted to craft a gene or identified which alleles to turn on/off in order to produce individuals of higher intelligence (probably the former as that would work better for this)... and they tested the gene on animals first, before releasing the gene into the general population. they could have chosen who gets the gene... artificial selection... but artificial selection has drawbacks, such as.. i believe it decreases genetic diversity? if they could, they'd fix that, but maybe their stuff isn't advanced enough to account for the problems caused by lack of genetic diversity in a population. so until they figure that crap out.. they just release it into the general population, and by some test, they identify which individuals exhibited the greatest expression of the trait the gene coded for... lucina and my luhan char could've been some of those people who turned up with the highest/strongest results, showed the greatest expression of the traits the higher ups were looking for... yeah.

the science kingdom could seem completely like the rest of the world except for its internal structure and hidden hierarchy... and their goals, ofc. they also are probably like tianyou's kingdom in that they encourage diversity... but for completely different reasons (having a diverse population allows for more complicated, multi-faceted experiments - and it's better for the country's overall survival). gosh i hope this made sense at all... it's 3 AM smh.

o h i can't believe i missed the last part of ur post, but yes they totally need a redemption arc. i mean... lucina... his spouses could probably help him tbh. tianyou's pretty kind... from what seli's told me, anyway.

but!! i mean my luhan char isn't involved in the whole arranged marriage thing, but i was thinking maybe since he and lucina could be science buds (they could be close... whatever that means lol) but he could accompany him to tianyou's kingdom for the first couple of times or something... and a certain someone there could.. just happen to notice him. i may or may not have a sideplot in mind but.. we'll see ;^)

definitely!! i also think it would take some form of self-centredness for almost this entire kingdom to believe that they DO have the power to reach that state of all-knowing like? in this world/society scientists do recognise their limitations, impossibilities, etc, but i imagine in ionia even then they'd keep trying to surpass whats viewed as irrational because? who else is going to push the boundaries?? they've already come so far, and as a whole the citizens would be used to having all these amazing gadgets in their day to day lives probably revamped every other year just like the iphone (sad laugh at ... the iphone x..) because the research culture in ionia is on a whole new level and ofc they resort to nefarious ends to test out whats seen as taboo in modern society like um. yeah. its for science

him being good!!!! at acting!!! i love that a lot? on the surface he'd be all smiles and compassion and then..... yep. thats probably how they all have to start living once they become functional members of the kingdom; basically the only ones that have any real sense of humanity would be the ones that have to just scrape through to live, because they see the imbalance in society and its flawed emphasis on manual evolution, and if i'm going through with this idea (which im not sure i will because it is.. rather..... cliche) then they'll also have intimate awareness of the ~purges of the lower class executed bc no one is allowed to have emotions in tech kingdom!! lucina personally wouldn't be one for putting on a facade; the only real sense of a spark that could be evoked in him is when he's curious about something, and then he'd start hounding after it to - a la science kingdom custom - unpack it fully. but other than that. idk. he's a bit of a rock? and very reclusive bc he knows he can't deal with people goodbye leave him be. he thinks so fast and too intensely that he really couldn't say anything remotely smooth for the life of him. at this point i honestly find him kind of boring ill need to, polish up his character a bit more.. weeps..

RLY, YES omg i find that a friendship between them would be so interesting because yes they're basically polar opposites. and it would just be very interesting to see them interact overall? being of the same environment, they would definitely understand one another and be able to work collaboratively at some points i would think?? maybe they were official lab partners at some point like..... we could try to do a semi-childhood friends thing omg where they split apart after pursuing their individual sciences but maybe met again because while luhan might not be in the elite team, he could still be somewhere close to it? or mb not! but at any rate yes!?!? they would totally slide e/o coffee and casually discuss findings and when lucina turns into half a zombie thats slumped over the counter your character would just start chattering abt his plants and poisons to pass the time. and sometimes pokes him w a thermometer to make sure he's breathing? and lucina would peer over your character's work and suggest improvements and sometimes they get into ~scientist arguments abt THE REAL ANSWER to certain paradoxes and help them

i definitely do like that and it would make sense!! i think its also rly worth thinking about other side effects as well, long term, because they are dealing w very delicate matters, intelligence and the like. im p sure something is going to go horribly wrong w all the people in the kingdom eventually. and the specifics of our own characters in terms of these modifications too bc most people would have had been modified in some way, so i have really been considering?? what i could give lucina? and how to slot in the inevitable defects of some of the mods they've been given. insomnia? severe migraines?? nose/ear bleeds from the strain?? and the question of if they've increased their lifespan somehow or shortened it drastically a..h.a.h.... save these kids
flashbacks to those living in the capitol in the hunger games. i'm js that ppl with technology and money would definitely invest in giving them some animal features,

i think ill stick with altering lucina's eyes?? do i make them glow in the dark. like.. eyeshine. would that be too farfetched. i think it would b cool.  bYE
also what if they could function like a telescope. or like.. idk!!

yes!! i made a tiny checklist of what i should develop further for the kingdom and i was going to write about the exact structure of it and who exactly is in charge, if it should take on an individual ruler like other monarchies? ? THEY WOULD TBH SCIENCE KINGDOM IS THAT PERSON,, what you wrote definitely did make sense!! now im hoping that all,, of this does,, sobs a lot. im sorry for writing so much!!!!

GOODBYE IM LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.... will i ever be truly ready??? who knows but . that would be so exciting to see omg

SpectrumClan had been a new thing.

Sidling up into the ranks, casting a glance left then right then placidly forwards right at the border and splitting into an unabashedly wide smile for anyone that dared look and for all that approached besides. It was a new thing because it was so out of place, prodding creatures of different species together almost like some finicky god saddled with the task of grouping certain creatures decided to merely lump together whoever happened to be closest. A winged dog and a cat with curling rough horns quite clearly real on top of the larger amalgamation that one would find, normal species save with the oddest colours (Americanbeauty's pinkness wasn't subtle) and with bewildering mannerisms alike, drooling blood and vision shrouded with the addition of a cardboard box and a neat tuxedo tom that seemed only to speak in couplets. It was a new thing because no one would have thought you could bring all these beings together in one place and expect harmony. Much less than that, stagnancy - such an expansive entourage surely belied a maelstrom like a firecracker.

It didn't. Not that it wasn't a shame, but there were bigger fish to fry and some stilled horses left unkicked and Gin - smiling, slit-eyed, three-tailed and really rather pleased to do whatever his own urges brought him to do when it wasn't as though anyone was within eyesight and earshot - hardly found it difficult to string himself free from an organisation he'd never truly merged fully into, only ever having lingered around the edges with his ears flicking curiously pleasantly and his perpetual grin a constant, utterly benignly upward curl of the mouth. Friends? Did he have friends? Any regrets about leaving? Perhaps you could wager a wild guess and say that the kitsune made friends, shrewdly polite and unconcernedly sarcastic as always, analytical and carefreely devil-may-care all at once, though perhaps that would be far too left-field. One like him didn't exactly make friends easily; no one would when they discomfited more than they ever reassured, when their expression remained fix in an unsettlingly wide rictus approximately all the time.

And you would scarcely have the freedom to state that those he'd met during his stay were any more or less amenable to said camping. Koriander and Crashcourse had definitely been intriguing characters in their own right; lively and dynamic as sentient beings were, unique and undoubtedly interesting. But they had enough brains to know not to look the Gin-horse in the hugely beaming mouth, plus not to poke him too hard with a stick - such was how the ebony horned feline had stared, unimpressed and wholly unwilling to self-sacrifice just to be used as a makeshift ladder, up at him stuck in a tree, and how the latter smiled and laughed genially brightly and cheerfully proclaimed that he likely had the skill to shred Gin's tails from his being if ever the situation called for it.

Ah, Crashcourse.

He was an interesting kid. Good sense of humour, too.

And so self-assured.

One would barely be able to find anyone better at simply walking than Gin. The silver kitsune could affix his almost-closed gaze in the distance, flick his tails and simply commence plodding toward nothingness. He was more than enough company for himself; low casually bright humming and idle Gatling gun commentary. That's how it seemed, at any rate - anyone coming from some distance in any direction up to Gin would indeed only find that meeting their eyes, lion-sized fox's eyes curved cheerfully shut and plodding a neat beeline straight for his next destination. It didn't matter if the destination was nowhere, in all honesty - 'forwards' was somewhere.

And, of course, a lion-sized fox gets hungry. Has to sustain his lion-sized fox's appetite, you know. So the lion-sized fox took a single moment to scour the area with basically entirely closed eyes, three long tails weaved together and both ears pricked on wanly upbeat alert. They were then almost blown back by the force of a certain bellow projecting soundwaves basically to the other end of Earth.

"My, my," Gin noted to himself, cocking his head and grinning, "looks like I caught myself a dragon by the tail."

The mouse in question had zoomed frantically in Gin's direction a moment before, utterly struck with understandable terror with its innate instinct to run, only to veer into a different direction with another aggrieved squeak so as to avoid the very scarily smiling kitsune that had been in its intended path. As such, Gin found himself confronted with one of the very beings that just might hate his guts enough to want to stomp them out, Crashcourse clearly having been on his way to swipe and snack on it.

Gin's beam stretched further, an ear flicking in greeting and delicately planting his feet so as to merely stand whereas he'd been in the midst of taking a single step before. Why not make amends with an old pal he'd lost contact with? "Yoohoo!"

After all, Crashcourse threatening to chomp his tails off was practically an endearment, wasn't it?

ROXAS
KINGDOM HEARTS
(DDD-'KH3' timeline)
"15" - male - Nobody

Nobodies are beings born from those that lost their hearts (more particularly the spiritual sort); in essence, they are still people, but are made only of body and soul with no capacity to feel emotions, which the Heart would have given, and so are only considered half an actual existence. Their lives do not begin with infancy but upon creation appear as, rather, reflections of who they used to be - on the other hand, only those with the strongest wills in the past life materialise as a human-formed Nobody retaining intelligence, past memories and possessing signature weapons while others are automatically morphed into 'malformed, barely humanoid' species. A far lesser known fact about Nobodies is that they are able to 'form hearts of their own as they become self aware.'

Nobodies have no explicit enemies, though are shunned by both Light and Darkness alike for being specifically neither and so may be attacked by anything all the same. Their most common 'enemies' would be Heartless, physical live manifestations of the darkness in peoples' hearts that target the hearts of other beings indiscriminately and rabidly (though their intelligence is questionable, as Nobodies do not have hearts). Heartless vary greatly but the most common form is a Shadow.

personality
  • passive; calm
  • agreeable when not dubious, read: outright noticing he's being lied to
  • awkward but adaptable in the way that he'll laugh and nod
  • self-assured - good-humored but definitely competitive when challenged
  • easily offended and quick to rile, though not as much as he used to be
  • see, he's mature now. at least, he's learned from his experiences
  • perceptive social situation-wise but easy to confuse & catch off guard
  • very bad grasp on anger management when lied to, on the other hand
  • for above, re: easily offended. tends to hold a grudge, too.
  • being forgiven is definitely possible, but it generally takes time, a lot of self-evaluation by roxas and probably an entire smiling transformation on his part. this is a joke. you are never forgiven.
  • alternatively, you will be, but it'll be quiet and he won't really want to talk to you ever again.
  • has some remnants of insecurity but he's mostly accepted who he is
  • quite warmly stabhappy for being able to whack things left and right
  • spoken like a true teenager!
  • speaking of; rebellious when he doesn't like his situation? very.

brief history (timey wimey, rip whyaretheresomanyeventsin358/2daysiforgot this is NOT brief im so sorry)

Spoiler: tl;dr • show
[list]
[li]born as a Nobody in Twilight Town, nameless, emotionless and purposeless[/li]
[li]given his name and taken to the World That Never Was, home to the humanoid Nobodies, and is initiated into Organization XIII by the leader, Xemnas, as XIII[/li]
[li]Xemnas asks him if he remembers his true name and reveals he's Sora's Nobody[/li]
[li]taken under the wing of Axel who instructs him on the basics of missions[/li]
[li]is introduced to the mystical magical world of sea salt ice cream! Salty... but sweet...[/li]
[li]slowly becoming more 'alive' & more responsive[/li]
[li]actually asked Axel his first question! Axel's surprised, too. No, it's about XIV[/li]
[li]life returned in droves; calls out to XIV but receives almost no response until -[/li]
[li]XIII takes off her hood and shows that she also used a Keyblade!!! Roxas invites her to sit with him and Axel at the Cool Kid's Table[/li]
[li]though Axel left on a mission, so it's just Roxas and Xion (XIV's revealed name) for a while. Until Roxas falls into a coma[/li]
[li]after waking, questions the deal with Sora and what the Organization wants[/li]
[li]Xion becomes distant, as does Axel; no one is telling Roxas ANYTHING[/li]
[li]Xion leaves the Organization, so Roxas does too (though separately)[/li]
[li]Xion found in Twilight Town, who reveals that she's not a Nobody but a replica of him? She forces him to fight her by becoming a giant monster because they cannot coexist without Roxas being endangered and she knows that and sdfksdfsdll; FEELINGS[/li]
[li]holds Xion as she slowly disappears after she tells him what she discovered about Xemnas's true plans and sHEDS A TEAR but gains the ability to use double Keyblades[/li]
[li]returns to World That Never Was to go release Xemnas's project but gets intercepted by Heartless & RIKU, Sora's friend, and they fight and Riku unleashes his trap card and hauls Roxas off because he wants to use Roxas to restore Sora. ...Which really is necessary but is also distressing[/li]
[li]put in a digital simulation with fake friends and fake life to hide him from Organization XIII[/li]
[li]meets Namine, who is another Nobody but more particularly the Nobody of one of Sora's friends. She tells him that he's not supposed to exist since he's only half a person as he is at current[/li]
[li]the simulation glitches though and at the last moment Roxas learns that it was all a lie from the creator of the simulation himself, 'DiZ,' who mocks him openly and rubs in his inescapable fate[/li]
[li]faces Sora for the first time. "You're lucky. Looks like my summer vacation... is over."[/li]
[li]but even after being restored into Sora's heart, he reawakens just enough to challenge him waaay during Sora's journey just as Sora touches down in the World That Never Was; fights him first before being beaten and, at last, acknowledging Sora by saying "you make a good Other"[/li]
[li]and again, later long after this when Sora is running through the World That Never Was once more, reappears before him and tells Sora that Sora should feel everything that he's felt (good & bad memories alike); Sora protests and says that Roxas is his own person which takes him aback but Roxas only smiles and says!! "See, Sora, that's why it HAS to be you."[/li]
[li]and so takes Sora's hands in his and shares all his memories and Sora is emotionally barraged by all the memoriES that Roxas's had[/li]
[li]and when he looks back, Roxas has disappeared -[/li]
[li]until money brought him back, of course.[/li]
[/list]


weapons
  • dual keyblades (giant sword-like keys he likes to spin like no one's business): oathkeeper and oblivion.
  • oathkeeper is white, oblivion is black
  • and they are both totally kickass!
  • (in roxas's humble opinion.)

activity
9/10
i havent joined any groups recently so i havent been posting much if at all except in my writing threads and the like but save me i check this website so often x____x

muse
8/10

plot ideas
maybe if the characters have powers in their game, theyll be able to retain a very low-powered version of it later on from the managers of this maybe wanting to incite more interest while others that dont are given random ones? or, to make it more even and possibly more fun, having the doctors somehow give every character a random ability (for a short period) ? just if you think itll work, though it's definitely ok if it wont!

other
i probably went waaaay overboard with this im so sorry. i love this idea so much save me. i can put this in a spoiler if it's preferable!!
