Trapped ◊ OoC

Recommended Posts

Guys, I am seriously contemplating closing Trapped. Am I doing something that chased you all away? I'd like to know what I did wrong, because we were going pretty smoothly for awhile.

The story is currently still focused on Marley and Christopher. At least, I havn't seen that the conversation has been disengaged, Marley has gone back to her computer, or Christopher walked off. Neither of them interacts with the children and none of the children are interacting with eachother.

 

We need people to start talking to eachother. I haven't read what, if anything, Marley does to theese children but you might want to start doing it.

 

I can PM people or you can but either way everyone needs to start talking to eachother.

Yes, but derp! Personally, I would love to give everyone the same amount of attention, but when your character doesn't give a kipz about the world around her, interaction with other characters is a matter of being in the right place at the right time, and so far I've been everywhere but the right place. I thought about PMing others, but I felt like that would be attention hoarding. If anyone has ideas my kitty ears are pricked. (and I am working on the "stuck in a cage" thing, Shyrus. But I am not the person to double post) I would have so much more time for character interaction if Skull would just respond!

semi-relevant post

 

Dreamed about escape last night. However, the compound was at a neighbor's house and, to be truthful, Marley wasn't paying much attention to the children. I forget exactly what happened but there was kicking and the two other children I knew about (got to be Edward. Yay.) didn't want to leave for some reason. I think this was because of some similar pact like with Christopher. Anyway, Marley got kicked quite a few times in the head (though it didn't stop her long) and I got to run out the back of the house with no security included. The other children chased me and told me to stop (at this point maybe Marley had made them think being there was better than home) and the dream ended with me holding onto a branch and nearly drowning in a creek during a rainstorm.

 

There is my brain's plan for you.

*Kick Marley

*Run through the door and ignore security

*Get about 150 feet

*Jump into a creek while it's raining to escape other children

*Nearly drown

*Flawless!

That plan was beautiful. I'm tempted to post this on facebook, but there are several different ways that could go wrong...

Irregardless! I think the RP may be getting back on track.

EDIT AGAIN: I tried my hand at a new intro. Feel free to toss it around a little.

 

"You crawl into bed after a long day. Your parents come in and kiss you goodnight, completely oblivious to the fact that you may never see them again...

 

Your day had been relatively normal. Nothing truly exciting had happened. But somehow, you find yourself envelope by an uncomfortable darkness. Are you dead? No, that couldn't be, you were alive just a second ago. You try to wrap your head around the problem before you're abruptly awoken.

 

You gather that you were dropped. There's a cold, hard surface below you. That erases the possibility that you're back in your bed. As you take in your surroundings, you decide that you're in a cage. On your sides, there are sixteen metal bars in total, with eight on each side. In front, there's a large door made of glass. You try to break it, but all you get is a swollen foot. Not even the tiniest crack had formed... "It must be plexiglass." you think. You could throw a brick at it and it wouldn't break. As you look up the hall that your cage seems to be in, you realize that this looks a lot like a lab. At the end of the hall, a lone scientist sits at a desk. She had bright red hair, no doubt died that color. Upon closer inspection, you notice that she might be an albino. Albino. Why are you put at edge by that word? Then you remember; you had seen on the news that a rogue scientist had been found guilty of kidnapping. The one at the end of the hall seemed to fit the bill perfectly... There's no question about it.

 

You've been Trapped."

Sorry to double, but it seems that the only one that isn't me or Lukos that posted was five days ago. sad.gif I'm not sure what happened to you guys, but I've done all in my power to address some frequent problems (that I've noticed, anyways). Irregardless, it also seems that everyone forgot about the New Lab intro. Derp to me if I'm just being paranoid, but Trapped seems to be just smoldering in it's own ashes.

*hugs Psycho* Hey, I'm going to stick with you whether or not anyone comes back. Also, because it is bothering me: I have arranged things alphabetically and added headers to appease my inner neat freak.

[QUOTE]Username: ArchiosLukos

Name: Edward Vermont

Age: 12

Ethnicity: English (Norman?)

History: Edward was in fact raised by a wealthy family as many people guess. His parents were strict about education and just about everything else, making him turn into a small professor. He was pounded into learning problem solving, the maths, sciences, and the arts. He was a very well behaved child, though this 'oppression' did and will most likely leave him prone to strong urges for rebellion and general absurdity. 

Appearance: 
*hair: Black, thick, curly
*eyes: Stormy blue
*skin: Pale 
*height: 5'6"
*weight: 96 lbs
*build: lean
*clothes:
- A black overcoat
- White dress shirt
- Black slacks
- [s]Silver cross[/s]
*overview
-Edward is freakishly tall for a boy of his age. His skin is pale white, though one wouldn't compare it quite to marble. However, that might someday come to pass as he ages. His black hair is soft and bound in a sheet of curls, falling past his ears and deeply into his forehead. His blue eyes sheen sadly, but with absolute intelligence. His face is usually set in a contemplating frown despite the fact that he is but 12 years old. 

Personality: 
* Edward is extremely mature for his age and extremely quiet. He will take charge if forced to and seems very sad on the outside, as if he is already resigned to his fate among the whirlpool of society. He also has a very rigid and stately air about him. This often gives the impression that he must be from a very intellectual family and most assume very rich as well. This is true. He is likely to either just relax when tradgedy strikes or sit moodily and rack over his options persistently.

[QUOTE]Username: Flamma

Name: Vita Schmitt

Age: 12

Ethnicity:When Vita was a baby she lived in Poland. Her parents moved to America soon after she was born. And that is where she is now.

History: When Vita was younger, she was bullied but seemed to tolerate it more than other kids. When she was nine, she was in a horrific car wreck that should have killed her based on her injuries, but she survived only with a scar running down her leg.

Appearance: Vita has blue eyes and blonde hair and of course her scar.

Personality: Vita is a very lively girl that is always full of energy. She is actually stronger than she looks but is very emotionally fragile and is scared easly.

Derp: Onoz, cat[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE]Username: Flamma

Name: Harris Smith

Age: 13

Ethnicity: German

History: Harris is from a very rich family. He was very popular his whole life and got everything he wanted. But... his parents taught him to be thankful for what he has and he's always been 

Appearance: Harris is very tall and has brown hair and brown eyes

Personality: Harris is very kind and thoughtful but is also brave and curiouse

Derp: Onoz, cat[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE]Username: Flamma and Psycho Cat (mostly Flamma)

Name: Darren

Age: 35

Ethnicity: I'm guessing German

History: Darren's family is shrouded with mystery. While many pursue knowledge on the twin's history, none has yet been found. While Marley and Darren are twins, their clashing personalities drove them apart. As such, he became an expert computer specialist. He is well known for his annoying habit of hacking well protected networks for no discernible reason.

Appearance: Darren has black, straight shoulder length hair and is fairly tall. Unlike his sister he is not an albino.

Personality: Darren is very laid back (important for working with computers) and doesn't tend to care about the consequences of his actions. Although not considered as malicious as his counterpart, he is generally shunned by society due to his constant cyber abuse.

Derp: onoz, cat[/QUOTE]

[U][B]Kikii[/B][/U]
[QUOTE]Username: kikii

Name: Caitlyn Von Williams

Age: 11

Ethnicity: White (American with German/Italian background)

History: Caitlyn was born in America to normal parents. In school, she did well in her classes, always getting As and Bs and always like to read, usually above grade level. One day, after reading a good book and her mom singing to her before she fell asleep, she was kidnapped.

Appearance: She's not very tall, around what could be called average. Her hair is a dark brown that is a bit messy and almost always pulled back in a ponytail. Her eyes are hazel-green and skin a light tan. She was wearing stretchy pants and a dark blue shirt when kidnapped.

Personality: She loves space, especially reading about planets and spaceships, you could say its an obsession, but she tries not to badger others about it. She also likes animals, specifically cats and birds. She can be socially awkward most of the time and get really stressed out when working in groups with strangers. She tends to be quiet and ignore those she doesn't know. When scared she may cry or just not breathe, causing her to cry anyways. However, if someone does manage to become friends with her, she is actually quite outgoing and nice, if a bit annoying at times. In other words she works better with people she knows than complete strangers.

[s][QUOTE]Username: Narvix

Name: Lucas Estandian

Age: 13

Ethnicity: Filipino 

History: Pretty average history but Lucas and Anthony have pulled a few pranks and gotten into a bit of trouble playing the old twin trick.

Appearance: [URL=http://images4.fanpop.com/image/answers/1821000/1821054_1312173012915.04res_300_302.jpg]Lucas and Anthony[/URL] but with slightly darker skin and black hair.

Personality: Lucas is generally louder than his twin brother and more outspoken, not caring if he's hurt someone's feelings by saying what came to his mind. He's constantly trying to get Anthony to help him in any prank he comes up with.

Derp: Onoz! Cats![/QUOTE][/s]

[s][QUOTE]Username: Narvix

Name: Anthony Estandian

Age: 13

Ethnicity: Filipino

History: Similar to Lucas's past but Anthony got into an accident that left a permanent scar that runs jaggedly across his right shoulder.

Appearance: [URL=http://images4.fanpop.com/image/answers/1821000/1821054_1312173012915.04res_300_302.jpg]Lucas and Anthony[/URL] but with slightly darker skin and black hair.

Personality: Anthony's the more careful of the pair, preferring to follow rules more often than break them. Still, he's up for an occasional prank so long as it's harmless.

Derp: Onoz! Cats! Anthony and Lucas are identical twins. Anthony is older by half an hour.[/QUOTE][/s]

[s][QUOTE]Username: Narvix

Name: Monica Diaz

Age: 14

Ethnicity: Mexican

History: Monica's family recently moved into the country, each getting their citizenship when she was about 10 years old. Her parents dominantly speak Spanish as they know little English so Monica had a bit of a hard time learning English for the past four years. She still has an accent but it's faint now and her English is better but she has trouble now and then.

Appearance: [URL=http://images.sodahead.com/polls/001191699/3312098643_a12e62dc50_xlarge.jpeg]Monica[/URL] with olive tan skin and her hair reaches just beneath her shoulder blades when down.

Personality: She's very quiet and shy, uncertain of how people will accept her. She's faced disapproving teachers, parents, and kids so it's made her wary of new people. Monica is uncomfortable speaking English so, if she can, she'll speak only Spanish.

Derp: Onoz! Cats! I'll put English translations for anything spoken in Spanish.[/QUOTE][/s]

[QUOTE]Username: Shyrus

Name: Lily

Age: 12

Ethnicity: Shyrus didn't actually put anything here, so I'll just fill it with Psycho Cat is great!

History: Nothing that's not normal. She had parents and lived a normal life. 

Appearance: Brown hair running to the middle of her back, blue eyes, thin, but short. (4 feet nine inches.) freckles on her cheeks And lightly tanned.

Personality: calm and quite. If she is called 'short' she tends to have a slight (hahaha! Slight! that's a lie.) 'tantrum'. She tends to think things through unless in a rushed or pressured moment. 

Derp: Onoz, cats. (And i just wanted to add: Squids.)[/QUOTE]
[U][B]SkullKrusher[/B][/U]
[QUOTE]Username: SkullKrusher

Name: Christopher Deckard

Age: 14

Gender(?): Male

Ethnicity: British American

History: Christopher was born in London, England. His father was an american, and his mother an Italian with British ancestry. She met his father 15 years ago at a small Italian restaurant, where she was a waitress and he was visiting because of a gallery. They got to know each other quickly, and only two weeks later they were in a serious relationship. A month passed, and Christopher's father proposed. She agreed and only two months passed until she was pregnant. 
Christopher was born quite smart. His parents would argue at first as to what language he should be taught first, but they soon settled on English, and added small lessons of Italian beside them. He learned quite quickly, though, and by the age of 10 he could speak in both languages fluently and knew almost all of the words. He was also very friendly and learned to be good and social wiht everybody he met until provoked. His friends also helped him train a bit so he was slightly muscular, and if it came to he could at least defend himself.

Appearance: [URL=http://12.img.v4.skyrock.net/1730/83251730/pics/3118779397_1_3_17RRf7Z7.jpg]Christopher[/URL], dis pic iz terrifying, no?

Personality: Friendly, kind and sweet, Christopher is a teenager that likes to make friends and then easily remember them. He is quite smart, too, and just a bit stronger than the average 14-year old. It's rare and tough to piss him off, but getting on his bad side is not impossible and getting out afterwards is hard - especially if you do it on purpose. Otherwise, Christopher is an explorer and a very curious child. His knowledge may be quite vast for his age, but he still has quite a lot to learn. 

Derp: What do you mean panthers are bad? Panthers, are big, fluffly, black cats. :3

Sorry i disapeared, guys! My sister and i have had our hands busy helping out a bird that was abandoned. And i didn't have enough time to reply to everything. I replied to other roleplays because they are new/ going really smoothly so i needed to keep up to stay in. I'm sorry i was gone. However keep in mind i did check Trapped often. I just forgot to check the OOC. *facepalms*

I know your probably mad. Sorry. I'll just go and put myself in time-out and then ground myself.

thanks for welcoming me back and not being mad. It means more then you know. ^-^

We didn't find the bird but our friends did. See, in our neighboorhood my sister and i are known as "the animal people." Sometimes there are people we don't even know that come to us. (however my brother was there and recomended us but it still counts.) xd.png

 

And random side note: we trained our cat to not eat birds. Mostly because we raise quail for relese. (sp?) so we had to tell her, "no!"

Nope, not mad, just glad! The only problem here is that I wish you would have PMed me with the problem.

 

On another note, am I the only one who's wondering where Flamma and kikii went?

Share this post


Link to post

I've seen Kikii around and I think she said something about not being able to come up with a post or not feeling like she was able to post. I might shout out a Role Call and give everyone about two days to respond. If they aren't in it anymore then they won't even be stalking and you can put a little around their sheet in case they come back. I don't know about Flamma though.

If things get dire I may PM Flamma, as she unfortunately doesn't have the "randomly quit the RP because I'm inactive" ticket. She plays Darren, which, although his cameos are rare, is a fairly important character when speaking plot-wise.

Yeah and I'll just make this campaign really twisted if I play him so... ^^;

As I said, I haven't noticed her posting around.

Most of the New Lab intro is based on the perspective of other characters. It also takes some inspiration from the Old Lab intro.

I'm just going to bring this back into priority. Because we're going to completely uproot the Old Lab intro and replace it with this, the New Lab intro has to by approval worthy.

And in other news, Trapped may make an appearance at Archan Island, although whether it will is still in dispute.

What? I would be honored if this came to Archan Island (and especially if any of the interested players joined us as well). Anyway, I've noticed that Skull tends to forget RPs sometimes so just give it a while or find a way around it.

By that I'm going to take that I'm allowed to post Trapped. I'll be off to submit it.

 

And to post something that actually relates to the RP, we do need to wait for Skull, but that shouldn't stop the other children from interacting (especially you, kikii)
