WELCOME TO THE SHOW!

Or, more specifically, Lost Carnival's test drive meme! This is an opportunity to try out your characters in the setting before you apply, or to put together samples for characters you've never played before. There are going to be options for both new arrivals and veteran characters. Before we get started, let's lay down some details:
  • You can (and should) read the full premise here.
  • Reserves and Applications are currently OPEN.
  • You can apply as a newcomer or as a "veteran" character who has been in the carnival for up to three years. In the case of veteran characters, you will need to come up with an explanation of why they haven't been around the carnival recently.
  • TDM threads can be used as game canon after the fact if both characters are accepted, the players agree to it, and it makes any sense contextually.
  • If you are interested in additional IC and OOC plot responsibilities, consider applying for a Supervisor position. Head Cook and Treasurer are currently open. Otherwise, we're pretty much down for anything, roles wise.

PROMPTS ARE WITHIN! )

ringleaders: (Default)
PREPARATION
After leaving the previous location, and a few days before coming to Greysol, the Ringmaster puts a massive spell on the souls of every member of the carnival. Greysol is in a world where the souls of every human or sufficiently humanlike person takes the physical form of an animal. Plenty of characters wouldn’t qualify, but what’s the point of going to a dæmon world if not to show them what their inner selves look like?

The spell causes dæmons to form for most characters. They will wake up, either from sleep or a daze, with what appears to be an animal pressed against their hearts or equivalent important symbolic organs, but they will almost immediately understand that this is not an animal. This is part of them.

As dæmons are souls made physical they will have some element of characters’ soul color. At minimum their eyes are that color, and they may reflect some carnival changes, angelic/demonic nature, etc. For about a day their forms can change instantaneously into those of different animals. Children will remain like this, though there will probably be several preferred forms rather than randomness. Adults will ‘settle’ by the time the carnival arrives in Greysol, the number of forms they take dwindling until they become fixed on a single one. Look to the first comment for a more thorough explanation on dæmons.

The spell doesn’t work completely evenly. Some souls are more heavily insulated and do not become external. Players can opt out of dæmons this way and have a few options for their characters. A glamour butterfly in their souls’ colors can follow them while they’re in Greysol. Alternately, they become witches wearing bird pendants to symbolize dæmons supposedly far away. Characters with significant animalistic aspects may take the forms of panserbjørn - slightly anthropomorphized polar bears.

(If you don't want to type out dæmon - d & a e l i g ; m o n - all the time, daemon works too. It’s pronounced “demon”.)

SETTING

Can you imagine my astonishment at learning that part of my own nature was female, and bird-formed, and beautiful?

Greysol is a large coastal city that seems to roughly equate to late 20th century Western culture and mores, with a vaguely Victorian teslapunk-influenced aesthetic and somewhat uneven technology. Horse-drawn vehicles and just plain horses are common, but horseless automobiles and strangely 21st century-looking bicycles don’t cause too much of a stir. There are paved streets, skyscrapers, and electricity even if they call it "anbaric lighting". Hot air balloons and dirigibles can be seen in the sky. There are many moving picture theaters, black-and-white and with somewhat questionable sound, but small portable radios are common. Watches that bear a suspicious similarity to smartwatches are all the rage, though they are in fact simply watches and require winding.

Every human and witch in this world has an external soul which most cannot go more than about twenty feet from, and non-consensually touching someone else’s dæmon is tantamount to assault. This presents some logistical difficulties in a big city, but humans have built Greysol to accommodate their other halves. Doorways tend to be wide, stairs broad and shallow, there are huge freight elevators in most buildings, and sidewalks are quite broad with human and dæmon lanes, though small souls are usually carried and flying ones can easily just stay above. Slick floors are never seen without hoof-friendly traction rugs and the like. Some of the street traffic consists of people riding their horse or similar dæmons, and you may see a giraffe soul at a lope, keeping pace with the carriage carrying his body. City life is harder on people with especially large dæmons, but they manage okay.

Hello! This Groove, aka Hinawa, bringing you a new character! This is Alphys from Undertale! She's a massive nerd of the anime and science variety, and also she's a lizard of some kind. She's coming from the King Mettaton neutral ending, and if that means absolutely nothing to you, the short of it is: everyone Alphys cares about is either dead or forgotten about her (or so she thinks), she has a terrible secret she can't tell anyone about, and she's completely miserable. So, she ran away and joined the circus!

Here at the carnival she's going to be working as a repairlizard and lighting tech (and probably doing some mad science on the side)! Being the massive weeb that she is, expect her to talk about anime a lot. HOWEVER, she won't break the fourth wall with any anime characters here (unless you wanna do that, then hmu). My plurk is over here if you want to plot!

Hi all, it's TEN again bringing you 9S from Nier: Automata! He'll be working as a Repairman with parttime Scout duties :>

9S is a highly advanced android coming from an Earth several thousand years in the future where humanity fled to the moon and the androids are waging a war against the alien created machines that have taken over Earth, the androids attempting to take back the Earth for humans to re-inhabit the planet. Or something.

Despite being in service to humans, 9S has never actually met a human before, so his knowledge of them is based off thousands of years old fragments of history and the AI of his fellow androids, all of whom are mimicking humans. It's a recipe for hilarious misunderstandings and teaching him all the wrong things about humanity. Overall, 9S is a curious cat and will poke his nose into everything, and has a sarcastic streak a mile wide that you'll start seeing once he realises that humans are actually a lot lamer than he thought they would be. He will also be coming along with his robot buddy, who he taught to fistbump.

Unfortunately, with 9S' acceptance, I've dropped Crow.

Looking forward to playing off you all! I can be reached for plotting at [plurk.com profile] jesii, as well as in the Discord chat.

Hello, all. Name's Knux and I have made the ARC-V cast very, very happy! For my first character, I have brought in Yuzu Hiragi. She's kind of your typical redheaded tsundere type character who actually has a lot of mystery to her. Oh, and she also plays card games like the rest of her canon. For added fun, she comes in very early in the canon, which means all of those mysteries and such about her are still mysteries! Yay!

She'll be your newest cashier (which is funny, since her manga counterpart was really into money) for this run.

If you want to get in touch with me, my Plurk is [plurk.com profile] AshBlaze. Glad to be aboard!

The E X P A N D E D Heart Meter Meme



You know the drill:

Comment with your character.
Copy/paste the appropriate hearts to reply to other characters.
Fill in alternate text as desired.
Alternatively you can just write an IC letter from your character to theirs cause mobile is terrible for hearts. Basically the same thing.

Snatches from this heart meme here. Which has probably been snatched from a dozen other sources.

cawnviction: (bring it killua!!)
Hi everyone, my name is TEN (not the other ten) and I am fresh meat bringing you Crow Hogan from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's! He's a newbie arriving after making a deal with the Ringmaster to bring back his kids from not-actually death, and will be working as a repairman.

All you need to know about Crow is that he is small and angry and ready to punch all of his canonmates for various reasons--

Ok but for reals, Crow is just a dude who lived on the streets of an island city that is basically a dumping ground for trash and spends his time trying to raise a gaggle of orphaned children while living in poverty. But he's determined to give his children a better future, so he's ready to fite everyone who'll take that away from them. He'll be arriving extremely ticked off since he's arriving from a canon point where his kids are 'dead', but when he's not angry, he's an andrenaline junkie who loves nothing more than going fast on his motorbike.

Looking forward to playing with everyone, and I can be contacted at [plurk.com profile] jesii for plotting!

(I also just got back from literally 24 hours of flying, so I am dead tired, but it's great to be here!)
