1987. New York City. Bodies have been turning up on the streets, in the alleyways, behind businesses and even on the roads and in hotels. All absolutely bone dry. Not even a drop of blood in their systems. It has turned the area upside down, the famed “city that never sleeps” now hiding under the night’s cold veil, shaking in pure fear. No one dares to go outside after dark anymore. Not for fear of certain death.
However, a group of odd ones out, a gang of mere high school friends, have gathered, forming together as a sort of teenage private investigative group to figure out what the absolute hell is happening to their city. Soon their alliance will uncover and reveal what secrets the town, the authorities, the nation even, has been keeping since the beginning.
This is a Lost Boys inspired rp, but only in the fact that I watched the movie recently and was really inspired to make a vampire RP.
That and I’ve seen a couple small group RPs with sort of this kind of plot, so I was partly inspired by those as well.
Also I recently re-fell in love with a lot of I Brought You My Bullets and Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, which have a lot of vampirish attitudes to them, but I digress.
-MUST BE (at least) SEMI-ACTIVE. A few posts once a week will do! Just make sure you’re getting those posts in to keep this RP running. -MUST FOLLOW ALL FORUM RULES. -TREAT OTHERS WITH RESPECT. Absolutely NO fighting! I know firsthand how stressful that stuff is. If you don’t agree with someone’s taste of humour, religious beliefs, or even politics, or any other topic, please have an ounce of respect for your fellow forum members and treat them as you would like to be treated. -SWEARING IS ALLOWED, but only what is specified under forum rules. -This RP is supposed to be PG-13, so this may contain many darker themes. This being said, please don’t go into detail about any gore or anything super dark. I personally don’t mind it, but forum rules are law here. -Use codeword “chemical” somewhere in your joining forms, so I know you've read the rules. -QUALITY OVER QUANTITY. Of course, with every RP, please don’t post any one-liners. But, that being said, don’t post 3+ paragraphs of filler text. Try to make each word, each sentence, mean something, if that makes sense. But, again, that being said, this is a semi-literate RP, so 3 lines at the least so we have something to respond to. -ROMANCE. Every type of romance is accepted! Please just keep romance within forum rules. Keep romance PG-13 at the most!
Of course, there are places both deemed important and unimportant by the team. Here are just a few of the more important ones. (Fun fact, these are all real places!)
STUYVESANT HIGH SCHOOL - A standard public high school, right in the heart of NYC’s Manhattan, in which the standard mission statement is that every student shall succeed, blah blah blah. This is the school where all the kids in the group go.
NEW YORK POLICE DEPARTMENT (at Ericsson and Varick) - This place might become more useful as time passes. This is a 10 minute walk from the school, and some of the kids are friends/family with the officers who work the station, making it key in later events.
CENTRAL PARK - A park right in the middle of New York City. This is a popular place for the team to meet. A big carousel, a lake, and many trails are only some of the attractions here at the park.
UNION SQUARE CAFE - Although this little cafe is a little bit out of the way, from the high school and from the tourist spots, it’s still one of the best spots for the team to meet up, aside from Central Park. Cheap, good food, lots of seating. How could you go wrong?
TIMES SQUARE - A bustling tourist spot… where most of the bodies have turned up. Far from the school, but still an important place and factor in the investigation.
HARSIMUS CEMETERY - A sprawling portion of land dedicated to the dead. Just like any old cemetery, just a short drive across the water from New York, in Jersey City. Another spot for meetups.
There is more to be added…
The team is made up of several types of teenagers, teens from all across the board, from different groups and cliques to other clubs and other states, even. The thing that brings them all together is that they are all interested in the killings. Each character has an archetype, a distinct personality, to help with inspiration and character development.
The Leader - “Power isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.” - VERONICA HOLMES - @wildmask
The Lover - “You’re the only one.” - DANIELLE "DANNY" WARREN - Nightwisher
The Explorer - “Don’t fence me in.” - HARPER PENDLETON-MORRISON - MissMisty
The Hero - “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” - NORMAN DASHIELL WALTERS - Space Cookie
The Rebel - “Rules are made to be broken.” - ANTHONY HARRIS - bullets
The Caregiver - “Love your neighbor as yourself.” - DALLAS ROE IWA - celegg
The Good Neighbor - “All men and women are created equal.” - PERCIVAL "PERCY" KING - 𝚜𝚙𝚊𝚛𝚔𝚜𝚌𝚊𝚝𝚝𝚎𝚛
The Jester - “You only live once.” - STEVEN JACKLE - stivis
The Creator - “If you can imagine it, it can be done.” - LORELEI "LORE" SORELLE - Chaos
The Magician - “I made things happen.” - KYLE INGLES - @angelfur
The Sage - “The truth will set you free.” - ABBEY WICKES - ƤαƖƖαѕ ✧
NPCS. NPCs (non-player characters) in this universe can be anyone from teachers to parents to police officers. Anyone can make an NPC, and anyone can play an NPC. (Please post NPC descriptions on the joining page!)
OFFICER MATTEO HARRIS - Anthony's father, a police officer. A big, beefy Italian man, with buzzed brown hair and steely brown eyes. x x x x x
RELATIONSHIPS. As we do have a bunch of rowdy teenagers, relationships will soon form. They are listed here. ALITA -> ANTHONY ANTHONY <> ABBEY ALITA <> LORELEI x x x x KEY. -> = crushing X = relationship <> = close friends / = exes
Little is known about the immortals who stalk the night. Many know them in the realm of books and movies, but few know the truth about their existence on Earth. Classic and modern literature depicts them in such wildly different ways, that it’s hard to pinpoint whether or not something is true, even for the people who know. But what is certain, is that vampires have an aversion to the sun. Whether it burns them up into a pile of ashes, or it simply inconveniences them, what is sure is that the sun is their main weakness.

~Duskheart~: Wikipedia is actually decently sourced almost all of the time.

~Duskheart~: It USED to be more sketchy. It's good for finding sources now.

Moonlight: ^ yep. It used to be a lot more unreliable than it is now.

Moonlight: it's not like a fandom wikia that can just be made and edited by anyone lol. There's tons of moderation. though I do agree about WebMD, there are better places for that for sure >_>

Smokey Feather: Winter Hawk misophonia is hatred of sound basically. You get at the very least highly annoyed by sounds that most don't consider annoying more of less. Chewing, tapping, breathing, etc. I'm putting it simple but it's a little more complex xD
