&& ace is your classic teenage boy. he's been in the m for three years and as a result he doesn't have much relationship knowledge. he's also not particularly confident in himself, but he's deathly loyal to his friends. he just needs some more interaction with other people, especially other medics.
needed friends, enemies, romance plot ideas someone to help him with electricity, general medic funthreads, him teaching some medics? i really want another fulsi to play on his insecurities and tell him he's not good enough/old enough to be chief medic thread availability available!
earthquake plots most likely to stay with charm and other ex-fulsi survivors. may also become a nomadic doctor, travelling between regions and groups to help all who are injured/sick
&& this retro is a moody boy. he's incredibly quiet and doesn't really enjoy the company of others much... he's a closeted romantic, so it'd be fun to have someone drag that side of him out. despite his solitary nature though, he is still quite curious about humans and their ways. i'm super low on threads with him right now so anything would be fun.
needed friends, enemies, romance plot ideas people to help him with his telepathy, someone to draw him out of his shell, general moody asher threads... thread availability available!
earthquake plots will probably join Joseph and his gang as a scout/mascot
&& val is my russian joker. she likes to have a bit of fun, however she's more timid at times due to her poor eyesight. she's found herself with a few weapons and i'd love for someone to teach her how to use them. she's terrified of carna and very wary of shifters on the whole... she needs nakomie buddies!
needed friends, enemies, romance plot ideas teaching her how to fight, her being overprotective... thread availability available!
earthquake plots probably will stumble upon Quick and join him in forming a group of former Fallen members.
never worked so long and hard
24 && australian shepherd shifter && fallen omega && app
&& aiden is basically a child. he's got adhd and because he now no longer has his medication he's basically insane most of the time. he and his ferret pal like to get up to mischief, and i'm sure he'd land himself in a fair bit of trouble often. he pretty much just needs people he can drag off on adventures, as well as people to get him out of trouble.
needed friends, enemies, romance, his brother? plot ideas getting into trouble with fallen higher-uppers, mischief times, i'd like him to get into some serious trouble at some stage thread availability available!
earthquake plots possibly will also join Quick and other Fallen members.
&& this horse boy is very intelligent and knows quite a lot about the human lifestyle. he can read and write and doesn't mind his human form. he needs to get to know more bellator people because he's their second-in-command. he just needs some friends basically...
needed friends, enemies, romance plot ideas meeting normal shifter peoples, teaching other retros human stuff, actually doing something useful within bellator, horsey funtimes thread availability available!
earthquake plots will be hanging out with Damian and his other friends
&& soren is very difficult to figure out. he hates talking about his 'feelings' and prefers to pretend he has none. he's both a gym junkie and a quiet reader, but he still appreciates the company of others. also he's a fish anthro that's petrified of water... someone should probably teach him to get over that soon... also i'd like him to maybe teach some of the weaker nakomas how to fight, just for some fun times.
needed friends, enemies, romance plot ideas he could do with a good fight, maybe a carna recognises him from when he was with them, he just needs bonding times with other anthros basically thread availability available!
earthquake plots forming a group with Persephone, essentially carrying her through the whole earthquake cause she will be in hibernation. if there are any other nakoma wanting to join this group let me know.
&& ebony is a feisty young teenager. she can take care of herself, thanks to boone's training as well as her own upbringing outside the menagerie. she's easily angered, but incredibly loyal to those she calls friends. like all teenagers, she's rebellious and she likes to have fun.
needed friends, enemies, romance plot ideas hunting times with other carna, raids, hanging out with other carna, maybe some feisty threads with a fulsi or fallen thread availability available!
earthquake plots probably just sticking with her mentor Boone.
&& klaus is a virus that unfortunately was given the capacity to feel emotions. thus, he is constantly in turmoil when given the chance to infect. he's incredibly curious about people, but he is also deathly loyal to the keepers. anything could happen with him really since he seems to be rather bipolar...
needed friends, enemies, romance(?) plot ideas infecting threads, being taught about people, questioning his objective, general confusion threads, a fight would be interesting thread availability available!
earthquake plots INFECT EVERYONE. forming a virus club with Pompeii. let me know if you have viruses that wanna form their own infectious group. may have him infiltrate another group under the pretence of being an anthro...
&& queenie was brought up as a princess in a small french town. there are many different aspects of her personality, and she tends to hide them under a mask until she knows she can trust someone. she's incredibly good at icing people out, and won't hesitate to make someone's life a misery. to her friends however, she is incredibly loyal. also, she has no filter and tells it like it is.
needed friends, enemies, romance plot ideas competitive threads, general fallen fun times, maybe a hunting thread, anything really thread availability available!
earthquake plots WHERE IS DOMINO? jks first we must torture these two a little more. let me know if you've got any fun ideas
&& phoenix, while still just a child, has had to grow up quite a bit since being dropped into the menagerie. she's constantly accompanied by her loyal canine, bear. she's still quite naive about the world at times, but her generally happy nature makes her approachable. she still probably wouldn't trust a vast number of people, she mostly sticks to her family and bear.
needed friends, enemies plot ideas just general learning how to survive, maybe a mentor session, some young friends would be nice thread availability available!
earthquake plots absolutely no idea. maybe she'll hang with her siblings idk. hit me up if you've got ideas
So! I've got Ray "East" Kraus to toss at your boyo, Jayden. East is in Fulsi and... well, he's kind of difficult to describe. Here is his application, if you're interested.
Basically, I was thinking that it could go a few ways. Firstly, East is pretty friendly to other Fulsi, and is good with making friends. He would be fine with Ace's arrogance... pretty much because he's very vain himself. Plus, not very many people manage to upset him or anything. He's also attracted to "pretty people", and I'm thinking that Ace would qualify, so prepare for flirtation. However, East is also somewhat manipulative, and he may also express interest in Ace because of his position in Fulsi, just because.
If you would like we could have them be friends who flirt, or friends with benefits, and see how it progresses or changes? East isn't particularly close to anyone, but that's always possible to change!
I totally posted in your plotty thingo anyway because I agree so much. These two should definitely meet. But we shall carry on the plottage here.
Ace would also not be fussed about East's vanity, they can basically just sit together and argue about who is the most awesome out of the pair =P that's what bros do. Ace also tends to make friends with any Fulsi, because they're all pretty cool people. And he's super loyal to his Ring so he wouldn't betray them or anything.
Haha Ace would love it if he knew East considered him a 'pretty person.' It'd make his ego quite bloated. And Ace will flirt back. So please be prepared for that. But I don't really know how good his flirting really is... He likes to think it's amazing but... He's been known to think too highly of himself before. But yes, he will still try to flirt with East. Because seriously, I stared at East's avatar for like 20 minutes before I remembered I was gonna read his app... DX
Ooooh friends with benefits would be pretty interesting. I mean, they'd definitely be friends who flirt a lot and I think that could progress quite quickly into friends with benefits. And Ace isn't used to that kind of relationship, mainly because he was thrown into the M at age 15 and then was more focused on survival than his love life and stuff. But like, he would definitely not be telling East that... He's too cocky to admit to that kind of thing. But he'd still be willing to have that kind of relationship, because he's just that kind of a guy.
As for seeing where it leads to, I reckon that'd be cool too. Like East, Ace doesn't often open up to people, but perhaps that changes somewhere along the way. Who knows? I'd just like to see where it takes the pair of them.
So yes. I like this very much. Thread?
ace - asher - valeria - aiden - duke - soren - ebony - klaus - queenie - phoenix
WHELP. I totally didn't notice that until you pointed it out. That's what I get for forgetting I have a plotter B)
BUT ANYWAYS. To all of this I say: Good, good, good, good.
Shall we see where it goes? Should we play it like they know each other alright, or should we kind of just start from the beginning? Either or! Also, for how they meet/interact in the thread, maybe Ace needs some more medical supplies (like plants with medical properties) and East has a good memory, so they send him out with him?
Maybe we play like they've met but never really gone past name introductions and stuff. Maybe they had one or two scout shifts together before Ace got moved to medic? I think I like that idea of East going out to help Ace find some fancy plants. So yes. Would you like me to start it?

Hey. I can throw both of my characters your way, both for Valeria(just cause she looks interesting and her name is really close to Valyria, from Game of Thrones) ,actually: Ptah and Quick.
Ptah: he's the Nakoma Major and, honestly, I need more threads with him. He's basically a big, badass, gentle minotaur anthro(ie. Bull anthro. XD but looks like a minotaur). I haven't threaded with him in a LONG time, so I need to use him more.
As far as the two of them go, I think Ptah could be the one that found her after she got released into the M. Like I said, he's basically a big, strong and gentle giant. I think she'd really get along with him. Lol
Quick: he's my fiery, dedicated Fallen, who also happens to be Beta of his Ring. XD I kinda need friends for him, and haven't really threaded him with Anthros much, and I figure his indignation on Anthros' behalf on how they are treated by Shifters could help open her up to him some, and they could be friends.
EDIT: Just a side-note, he was recently betrayed by the one close friend he ever made after being broight to the M, so he'll have difficulty trusting past a professional level for a while.
And an idea for a thread with Valeria and Quick popped in my head: She ends up getting chased by Carna into Fallen territory and Quick saves her/runs the Carna off.
Post by Valeria Kazakov on Apr 26, 2013 21:55:24 GMT -5
VALERIA & PTAH , yesssss. because she was attacked by a mean carna when she first got thrown in the m, so someone big and strong sounds very helpful. so they'd already know each other then, because i put in her history that the guy who saved her took her to nakoma. and val is loyal so, she will feel forever in his debt. and i also think they'd get along really well. so frahnds xD she was probably scared of him when she first met him... lol. cause his big. but he's nice so now she'll be all good with it.
VALERIA & QUICK , val is basically scared of anyone who isn't an anthro... so when she first meets him she will most likely hide behind a tree... or just kinda close her eyes and hope he doesn't see her =P i think, though, once she knows that he shares the same opinions on the treatment of anthros, she'd certainly open up to him more. yeah i think they could definitely get along well together.
who would you prefer to thread first? i'm not really fussed.
Maybe we could do something with Asher and Nikarii? She seems sorta like a female version of him so maybe they can do a I've got your back if you got mine sorta thing that could possibly evolve into a romance. The only thing would be that he would have to like rescue her from something so that she owes a debt to him and feels as if she has to repay him. Otherwise I think they'd just ignore each other. XD
ASHER & NIKARII , I reckon a sort of mutual agreement/trust thing could work quite well. Asher would definitely be willing to stick his neck out for Kari, because that's just the kind of guy he is. As for romance, I'm not particularly sure how well it'd work out. Asher is an incredibly solitary bird, and even when he does socialise he tends to look down on those that are smaller than him. There's a huge size difference between the pair, and he tends to only pine after other eagle species. However, I'm happy to see where the thread takes them, as I'm not really one to totally plan out romances. I just like to see how characters mesh together.
I'd imagine Asher could meet Nikarii if he maybe saves her from another predatory bird? Maybe one that isn't a retro tries to pick on her and Asher swoops in to protect her. He'd try and tell her that she doesn't have to pay him back or anything though, and would get confused when she tries to. But maybe, due to their difference in age, he tries to help her out a bit in the M? Take on a bit of a protective role that might draw him out of his shell a little. He'd want to protect the little birdie from other meanies. He'd basically try to help her out whenever he can. And teach her the ways of the birdie and how not to get killed in the scary ass dome. But yeah. Lemme know if you've got anything else to add.
five [twenty one] - black eagle - lawaii kondukteur - pansexual - single
That sounds good and we can totally just see where the thread takes us. Maybe after Asher saves her she could start following him around and being a little bit of a nuisance and then she could do something else that's a really stupid thing to do in the M and he decides to help her out in an annoyed big brotherly fashion?
And I can probably get a thread started soonish, but it will be a bit short since I only have Internet access through an iPhone...
Edit: The thread's up, it's the only one in the crags in Lawaii territory.
UPDATE DECEMBER 2ND, Everything's been all edited and stuff. I basically need threads and plots with everyone, and I'm totally up for anything. So reply here or PM me if you've got any ideas or you just wanna brainstorm!
