"Totally. I'm terrible at art." He shook his head, grinning.
Chris let out a soft, girlish giggle. "Hate to say it, but you're right. I've seen your projects."
"Ah, it's fine. I just take it cause it's an easy class," he said, smiling.
Instantly Carver relaxed. Marcia was flirting. Ah, here was something he was good at and comfortable if everyone else knew it to.
"I've seen you at school. Hard not to notice someone as pretty as you." Now for half smile.
Name: Carter Ruby Gomez
Looks: She has hot golden brown eyes and wild auburn and gray hair that falls past her shoulders. She’s athletic and usually wears her brothers’ hand-me-downs.
Personality: She has a tendency to be a little bit flirtatious, but it’s all in good fun. She’s afraid that femininity is vulnerability, so she exaggerates her tomboyish traits to hide her hopelessly romantic, giggly girl side.
Background: She has four brothers and has always been like one of the guys. The oldest boy raised her and her younger brother and two of her older brothers after their parents died.
Favorite Book: She has an omnivorous appetite for books. Besides that, she’s also a versatile writer. But if she had to choose, she’d probably say the Narnia series. (She’s also a big buff of movies based on books.)
((She's good. Now jump in so we can start a relm ^_^))
(Sure. Sorry so late, I'm currently trying to finish some stuff for school.)
"Good afternoon, Mr. Paige," Carter greeted cheerfully as she bounced into the library with her backpack slung over one shoulder. She unloaded her borrowed books quickly and moved along the shelves to find something she hadn't read in a while.
He leaned on the bookstand to try and hide the book from sight and something small and heavy handed on his toe.
"Ouch," he jumped back and looked down. On the ground before him was a huge bulky key. "Where did that come from?"
He picked it up and held it up to the light. It was an old key, the kind that no one uses but everyone thinks is cool. It was beautiful actualy,
"Huh," Carver said and set it on top of the book, "Must've not seen it there."
Suddenly the book began to tremble and it's pages rattled. Carver took a step back and put both hands in the air as a wind blew around them. The Key was glowing and the pages turning back to the front cover where three words apeared in long graceful hand writing: BOOK OF RELMS.
"What the....?" Carver leaned forward again and touched them with his fingers. That's when everything happened. Shards of light exploded from the book and hit him and Marica in the chest. Five other's shot further into the library, but Carver didn't see where they went, the last thing he saw was book pages growning larger and larger and that Key vanishing.
"What in the world..." Jack dropped his book as the library around them exploded into light and wind that seemed to come from a kid he saw across the room. He stood up and tried to call out to him but everything started to vanish.
Carter tensed up as a beam of light shot out of a neighboring row and zapped her in the chest. She felt like she was yanked from her spot. Flying across the room, she squinted into infinite white trying to figure out what the heck was going on.
Chris was going to retort with a smart-alec comment but was cut off by two shard of light. One hit her, the other hitting Jack. She cried out in pain and grabbed her stack of books as if it would tether her to the ground. Blank book pages surrounded her, blurred backdrops wizzing by her head. She closed her eyes and landed in dirt with a hard "THUNK."
((I'm going to go ahead and start the first Relm this afternoon about 4:00 Central Time Zone. Hint: this was originaly a play and There are tons of movies and break offs from this (Disney included made a movie from this). Like I said I wanted to pick one that everyone should know fairly well to start off and I hope everyone knows this...I mean they should. So if you want to add more details to your character about them falling into the Book of Relms go ahead. ))
Marcia closed her eyes, praying for a quick and painless death.....wait a minute. Why would a book cause her death? WHy would rays from a book even hit her in the chest? How did rays from the book get out of the book in the first place? Marcia had no time to discover the answer once she opened her eyes.
((I'm just going to pass until we get to the first realm. Would be a worthless post on my part, methinks.))
((Haha okay. I'm about to post it in a sec anyways))
CHAPTER ONE -- PLAY
THE RELM OF PETER PAN AND NEVERLAND
(options for characters: Indians, a normal 'lost' kid, fairy, pirate or any others from Peter Pan)
(awesome sauce) Chris moaned softly and sat up. She looked around and was shocked by how big everything was. She stood and brushed her dress off, looking around to-... Wait, why was she wearing a dress? She looked at herself in a body of water and she saw wings. WINGS. Chris screamed as she realized she was a fairy... And the body of water was only a puddle.
Speices: Human- indian
Appearance: hair is long and in a pony tail and he is now wearing buckskins
Ablities: the power to fly when he has pixy dust and can some what shoot a bow
Carver slammed hard onto a big green bush and bounced off it onto the ground. He groaned and grabbed his head before sitting up. He looked around in shock, he was at the edge of a beach in the shaddows of a jungle.
"What the--?" he stopped as his hand touched his hair....that was now long. He jumped up and yelped in shock, "What is going on?!"
He was in full Indian attire- compleate with a quiver and arrows and his skin was even more tan than normal.
Carver grabbed his head again, "this is just a dream....you got hit by a car and are in a coma...you aren't crazy....there's some reasonable explanation for this."
He heard another large grash behind him. He whirled around and saw another person land hard on the ground (anybody).
Jack sat up, his head throbbing. Where was he? He put his hand to his head and felt... feathers? He stood, and saw paint on his body and animal skin for clothes. What in the world was he dressed like this for? And where exactly was he?
"H-Hello...?" Carver asked the other guy who was sporting feathers (jack). "Are you okay?"
