Canals

62 posts in this topic

((Please note I have spoken to a RP mod about this and I have spoken with the owner and creator of this RP.))

 

Venice has always been a beautiful and admired city. But what would one think, to know that something ever so mysterious lurks in the depths of the numerous canals of the city? Dragons. It's dragons.

Setting

Approximately one-hundred fifty canals span the city, ranging from only a few feet to three-hundred fifty feet wide. Over four-hundred bridges are spread throughout the city, connecting lands separated by canals. The canals are shallow, despite their width, and must be dredged regularly to remove silt and sand buildup brought in by high tides that may flood the city. Although gondolas renown for carrying lovebirds throughout the city, they have become merely a tourist attraction, as residents either move by foot or by vaporettos or motoscafi, the buses and taxis of Venice.

As the population in the city grows, so does the amount of waste in the water. The health of the canals are becoming an increasingly critical subject in the matter of a clean city. Children no longer swim in the canals as they would in the past. They are filled with not only industrial but human waste, as well.

Story

 

Along with high tides comes a yearly batch of three water-dwelling dragon eggs. These eggs would be buried in silt and sand, and incubate for two to three weeks before their nesting material was disturbed by dredging, which upon they would float to the surface of the water. Children would collect the eggs from the filthy water, and upon bringing them home, would peel away the crust of hardened sediment. The eggs would hatch, and the child would generally try to hide them from their family, raising the hatchling in a bucket or fountain of water in a secluded area, feeding them fruits, vegetables, fish, and bread. Once the hatchling outgrew their small home, the children would release them into the water. Some partings were painful, others blissful, and a few, angry. Yet all of the abandoned hatchlings would cry at night for their lost masters, leaving only when the next batch of eggs arrived again.

But one hatchling changed this. His master clambered on his back, and the dragon of the water beat the water, stealing away with his beloved human. Despite the lack of social approval, dragons have begun to steal away with their young masters. Parents have shed their tears, believing their children have drowned in the filthy canals. But the dragons still lurk beneath the surface of the water, revisiting the town, like no dragons in past generations have. They return to be fed by the children, who have heard countless tales of them, but adults fear them to no end.

Alas, when the Vampires come to steal the city, whom will the humans turn to? Themselves, or the dragons who have lived secretly alongside them for years? The city of Venice will soon be disturbed. And the only thing between the Vampires and the city's beauty and culture, are the dragons of the canals.

 

Ah yes, le beloved:

RULES-

1) No power-playing, god-modding, anything along these lines.

2) ONE DRAGON/CHILD pair per roleplayer. One vampire per roleplayer as well.

3) Vampires are NP characters, but anyone may roleplay fighting a Vampire of course.

4) No chatspeak. Third person ONLY, thank you.

5) Nobody's perfect. I gotta work it. But seriously, darlings, no mary/gary-sues. No one likes a Bella Swan.

6) PG-13. Considering that this is a roleplay involving children, I would hope this would not have to be stated.

7) Minimum of four sentences per post. And please do not do four, three-letter sentences that make no sense and are extremely choppy. That disgusts more than just me.

8) After your character is accepted, please delete the post with your character sheet.

9) OOC must be friendly and kept to a minimum.

10) Spell minimum correctly if you use it, for some reason I'm have a terribly difficult time with that word.

 

I apologize for the many rules. But I would love a literate roleplay.

 

Yes, and the famed:

Dragons

 

user posted image

Username: Lila

Char. Name: Kaito

Dragon/Human: Waterhorse Dragon.

Gender: Female

Age: Juvenile Adult, 4 yrs

Appearance: Typical looking waterhorse.

Personality: Friendly and loving, though not the smartest dragon in the bunch. She has common sense though, and will use it to protect her Adrina. She is deathly afraid of losing Adrina, I should add, and is only loyal to her. She will refuse following any other child.

History: Was hatched in Adrina's room. Raised on shrimp & grits in the girl's aquarium, the dragon learned to love humans at extremely early age. She often splashed water on the carpet or downright tipped over the aquarium. Once she got too big for Adrina's room, Adrina moved her to a small canal a few blocks away, and had to visit her often to feed fruits and vegetables, and though not Kaito's favorite, these made her grow larger so she could swim in and out of canals. As soon as she had grown large enough, she had started giving Adrina rides on her back during the day, and people would be shocked by a girl that seemingly skimmed on the surface of the water at such high speeds. Due to this, Kaito and Adrina made a mutual decision to leave Venice for more than a day at a time when they rode.

Humans

 

 

Username: Lila

Char. Name: Adrina

Dragon/Human: Human.

Gender: F

Age(Years if human): 10

Appearance(no pictures): Short and petite, approximately 60 lbs. She has excellent posture for a girl her age, and since she is young, her skin is clear and the traditional olive-tan for Italians. Her brown hair is flecked with auburn and reaches past her shoulders to about halfway to the small of her back. She has hazel eyes and heart-shaped face, and a small mouth.

Personality: Shies away from other people, but adores animals. Every morning she decides the day will be an adventure, since her maturity level isn't the highest. She'd rather live with dragons than anything, and since her parents sleep during the day due to their occupation, she has free will, which has led her to be a bit of a brat when she doesn't get her way.

History: Found Kaito's egg when she was seven. She raised Kaito secretly, by hand, and it was rather easy because her parents were either asleep or out of the house. When she was four, she sunk herself to the bottom of one of the canals and wouldn't come back up because she wanted to be in the water. Her father dove down to rescue her, but as he came up was struck & killed by a boat. Adrina survived, and because she was young, sat there confused, and has never felt guilty for his death. Her mother is continually depressed, and only remarried because she wanted Adrina to still have a father figure.

Username: Lila

Char. Name: Xenith

Dragon/Human: Vampire Dragon

Gender: F

Age(Years if human): Adult (1,257 yrs)

Appearance(no pictures): Traditional vampire appearance. The white of her scales are stained with blood in several places and she has a scar across her eye.

Personality: A sly dragoness who often acts irrationally when she is angered. Xenith always gets her way and when she does not she usually ends up killing someone. She almost never sleeps because she loves to gaze at humans. The metallic taste of their flesh and blood is one of her favorite things, and she would do anything for it. Despite her love of homo sapien meals, the vampire always comes up with a plan before she goes after a target. After a little over a thousand years of being a vampire, she understands that just rushing in is stupid.

History: Her father was a skywing and her mother was a magi. They both were fearless warriors who defended their home island, but when most of their kin was killed, they moved to Venice and courted. Soon after, Xenith's egg was laid and entrusted with a human her parents had befriended. Although the human was honorable and guarded the magi egg with all of his heart, when the Vampires raged through Venice, her egg was Turned and she hatched a Vampire. She ate her caregiver as soon as she hatched and was raised by two mindless male Vampires until she grew large enough to kill them.

Char. Name: Tashrin

Dragon/HumanVamp

Gender: male

Age(Years if human): 378

Appearance(no pictures): normal male vamp only his tail spikes have been hardened to the point where its almost like 3 swords not. Also due to what he used to be his scales are very hard almost rock like.

Personality: Can be anywhere from a charming one to a down right cruel dragon. Depends on his mood hunger and what has been going on.

History: He used to be a stone hatchling still in the egg. He was one of the ones found by a caring human. Who was later eaten and then a pair of fangs got there changing poison into his egg. His nice personality is from his stone form. He, even when so young fought the change as much as he could but well visibly lost. So he almost got 2 halfs in one for personality's. One a calm caring stone and a mindless vamp. When combined results in him doing things he would have never done if he was never a vamp. His hard scales protect him from sun light but only for a little bit.

Kadaen was laying in the dark part of the canal. He knew that sunlight would hurt him greatly because he remembered when he was still in his egg, the vampire told him beware of the sun. He marked those words and he has. He was hungry, but there was nothing he could do to make sure he could servive. By his luck, he would die of starvation.

Vrans swam through the water poking his head out when the humans where not near by. He ducked under the water and swam on. He had gotten used to the sick feeling he would get doing this but the humans where not so kind on there waste methods. He came up a while later then spotted something that made him suddenly stop. He came closer slowly body submerged and only his head showing above the water. He slowly approached the vamp hatchling. The vamps only came at night when more or less all the humans where in bed. Or the few with there own dragons.

Kadaen saw something comming to him, he backed away, unknowing if the thing was friendly, mean or just plan an object. He was shivering scaredly. He didn't have the normal habbits of vampires. He knew he'll die sometime, but he was unsure when or how or why. He made up different senaros inside his head that would most likely happen to him and he was scared.

Vrans wondered how the vamp hatchling got here in the first place. Though it was clearly frightened as well. He tilted his head to the side slowly approaching as the water carried him. "What are you doing here in the middle of the day?" he sent to the hatchling. It was in plain sight too. That was odd.

Kadaen heard the older dragon. "I-i-i-i h-h-had j-j-j-just h-h-h-hatched a d-d-day ag-g-go," he stubolded on the words inside his mind as he sent words to the older dragon. He was still shacking. He was really a new born.

Vrans came up slowly to the hatchling \Strange, the vamps don't normally leave there young out like this. Normally are very keen on keeping the eggs to raise them to be blood thirsty killers....... this one is not in there paws...\ he rose so his body was not in the water but peeking out. He came along side the hatchling. "Here, I'll take you to a safer place where others won't find you to harm you." he sent. \maybe if we water dragons raise him he won't be blood thirsty and could help for when the vamps come out.\ he thought.

Kadaen nodded. He was still shacking but accepted the older ones help. Can you keep me from the sun? A older vampire died and told me to be aware of the sun, he asked. He was still nervus, but less scared that he knew that the older dragon was going to help him.

Vrans nodded and started to slowly swim through the water remaining above the surface to not drown the hatchling. He kept an eye out for humans as well. After some time he came to a stop under a bridge. He paused "How are you holding up?" he sent to the hatchling. He looked around to make sure no human was going to show up.

Kadaen was doing alright on the back of the older dragon. I'm hungry, but doing alright, he sent to the grown one. He didn't like to take thing that were not his, like blood.

Bubbles swam around in the deep water, unlike normal Shallow Water dragons. She captured a small fish in a bubble and went over to eat it.

((We need more detail, normally one first post in a RP is there intro post which says who there char is and whats been going on. Normally its a paragraph as well.

 

Also we need to aim for 4 senteces as well (though I know we all have brain dead days so I won't be hard on that rule) it normaly helps with those posting back as well. Shorter the post the less for others to go off of meaning the posts will eventually stop coming.))

 

Vrans nodded and looked around before continuing. then he came to a stop for him. If he continued the little guy would burn fast. "We have a issue, for a few seconds you'll need to be in the sun for us to get past unless you some how stay on the shade part of my neck.... but you'll be hanging off it to do that." he sent.

Kadaen shivered. He did not like that idea at all. He crawled slowly to the side of Vrans' body that would not get hit by the sun. Darn sun, Kadaen thought to Vrans. He didn't mean to, for it was acidental. He sighed and he looked at the merky water. He did not want to get wet at all, and he new that the sun would kill him, for that was the first vampire he had met died from. He sighed then he managed to balance himself on the side of Vrans. He did not like being this close to the water and the sun.

Vrans felt the hatchling get into position and he started to make way to the next section of shade. Though another issue came up. A boat was coming there way, up there path. He looked around "Hope you don't mind a little water." he sent lowering him self to the point where the vamp's head was above the water. He made best speed though it was still very slow.

'A little water?' Kadaen thought to himself sarcasticly as the Vrans lowerd until his head was over the water. He did not like the fell of the water, it was off to him somehow. He was annyoed. He sighed and wanted out of the water as fast as possible.

Vrans got to the other side and waited in the shadow of the canal wall and hoped the boat would not see them. It passed on like nothing happened and Vrans gave a sigh of relief. "Alright little guy, you can go back to you spot on my back." he sent.

 

((Writers block setting in crud.))

Kadaen heard Vrans sigh and he quickly went back to his spot. He was looking at the boat. 'W-w-what w-w-was t-t-that?' he sent. He was shacking.

Vrans looked around "That was what the humans call a boat from what I hear. They use it to travel in the water." he sent to the little fellow as they moved on.

 

After a while he came to the spot. A little hand made inland with a tree on it. He went up to it and crawled on a little. "This is my retreat.... not many come here. The few that have leave me alone." he sent.

Kadean nodded. He wondered how the humans looked clean inside this messy place. Once he was over at the little hand made island he jumped on it, loving the land under his paws. He never wanted to leave there. He nodded a thank you to Vrans. His belly growled and he didn't want to eat Vrans.

Vrans looked at the hatchling and sighed at its curse. He went and dived under the water and after a few moments came back with a fish, large compared to Kadaen. He placed in front of him "Here, this should help." he sent "I'll eat it later." he sent again.

Kadaen saw the older dragon sighing and then leaved him. He waited on the little island then he saw him coming back with a fish. He wagged his tail when the older dragon placed it infront of him. He bit it and quickly drank the blood, but still leaving some blood so the fish would not be bone dry for the older dragon to eat. After he drank most of the blood, he curled up and fell asleep.

Vrans found it cute how the hatchling ate after looking so happy then was asleep right afterwards. He ate the fish on one gulp as it was small enough for him then crawled into the ground a little bit. Coming to a rest half in and half out of the water. He rested his head and decided to take a nap as well.
