Slowly stalking a deer you are too concentrated on your prey, you don't see the dark-haired man until it is too late. Turning quickly you begin to shift only to find that you can not. Staring in horror at the man you quickly take in the lab coat and syringe before blacking out.

 

As you regain consciousness you look around to find yourself in a reasonably well decorated bedroom? As your walk out of the room you find yourself in an expensive-looking apartment that has a window. Walking over you open the blinds covering the window to see a high fence with several guards. Then it comes back to you: You were caught.

 

History

 

Shape-shifters have always lived alongside humans, watching from the shadows and warning themselves not to get involved with such selfish and weak creatures. Every once and awhile a shape-shifter would join with a human in which case they bind their souls together and share thoughts and memories as easily as talking; these pairs were called soul partners.

 

The knowledge of shape-shifters was kept very well hidden until one soul partner pair revealed themselves to a scientist who, although sworn to secrecy, started the Shape-Shift Study Program (or SSSP) that captures young shape-shifters and studies them their whole lives. Upon finding out about the SSSP the government hired the scientist to continue the tests and find out more about the mysterious new species. When it got back to the shape-shifter's leaders that some of their own had been captured they went to war with the government, but still in a secrecy that won't hold for long.

 

Now

 

You are either a newly caught young shape-shifter, an older free shape-shifter, a scientist, or a government official. Each group has its own goals;

Young shape-shifter ~ escape: if you escape don't get caught again

Older shaper-shifter ~ either help the young escapees or fight the government

Scientist ~ perform tests on the shape-shifters and find out more about the species

Government ~ capture all of the shape-shifters and take out what you think of as a threat to normal human's safety

Geography and Living Space

 

The SSSP Lab is located in the far north and is very excluded. The captured shape-shifters are treated well and are allowed to roam freely inside the lab but are not allowed outside of it and are sometimes called for testing in which there are two kind of tests, physical and lab.

Physical ~ physical tests are along the lines of mazes and fighting matches against one another as well as simple treadmill runs and weight lifting.

Lab ~ lab testing is as you would expect, stuff like blood tests and DNA samples

Map of the SSSP Lab

 

Government buildings can be found further south and are heavily fortified to protect against attacks from the shape-shifters. The buildings consist of apartments for officials and office buildings but not much else.

Map of Government Buildings

 

Shape-shifter's headquarters are hidden in dense forest between the two other programs, unknown by all but their kind. The headquarters are made up primarily by huts, and although they could use technology shape-shifters follow the traditions of their ancestors and use only medieval tools that have been mastered for thousands of years. This means that they have basic weapons, clothes, and technology. The huts of the headquarters are arranged in a circle with the leader's, war planning, and common areas in the middle with basic families branching out.

 

Species

 

Humans ~ same old, same old

 

Shape-shifters ~ Shape-shifters can shift into two or more different forms. One of these forms is always a human and the other is different for each individual. Shape-shifters are born with two forms, human and another animal, and can gain new forms by studying the new animal and understanding it then practicing until they can make the full transformation. Shape-shifters are also stronger and faster than humans and when in human form their bright and unnatural colored eyes as well as their grace will often give them away to those who know what to look for. Although they are more skilled than the humans, shape-shifters have a disadvantage, numbers. The ratio of humans to shape-shifters is more than 12 to 1 and that is just those that know of the shape-shifters this equals to 200 shape shifters.

 

Shape-shifters earn about one form a year starting when they turn 8 and can earn them until the day they die. Of course, this is an approximation.

 

Young shape-shifters are faster and stronger than older ones when in human form, but they can not change into as many forms and do not know as much as the older generations.

 

When in animal form, shape-shifters look almost exactly like the said animal. Exceptions are eyes that stay the same unnaturally bright color as when human, as well and size. Male shape-shifters may be slightly bigger in animal forms while females are usually the same size.

Username: littlelizzie

Character Name: Rember (not real name)

Gender: girl, but is pretending to be a boy. Nobody knows she's a girl and they can't sense it at all

Species: Shape-shifter. She's pretending to be a human though!

Alliance/Who are you working with: Shape shifters; is helping them all escape after getting out by pretending to be a human.

Age: 15

Crush: She finds Glyph quite interesting

Weapons: A small dagger and bow

Forms: Dog, Red Tailed Hawk, California Sea Lion, Hedgehog, Beluga Whale, Savannah Wild Cat, African Penguin, Chameleon, and Fox. All of the animals have yellow eyes, and the dog form has brown fur instead of black.

Appearance (In each form): All animal appearances are listed above. I'll give you a picture of her later~ But I'll say that she has short hair, wears converse shoes, wears a loose tank top, shorts that come to above her knees and fingerless gloves that go up to her elbow. Her hair is brown and her natural eye color is yellow, but she can make them turn brown to trick humans and shifters. She has a wrap around her breasts to make them flat.

Personality: Brave and loyal. She believes humans and shifters can get along, but she defends her own kind and fights against humans. However, she will still help a human if she sees fit to. She acts like a boy quite well and hardly gets embarrassed. She's a quick learner and loves to try new things, which is why she has one more form than normal for her age. She loves using her dog form and will usually always go into that form to get away, even though she knows the Savannah Cat form is faster. She doesn't like harming others, but she will if they get in the way of her trying to escapse.

Username: littlelizzie

Character Name: Drake Gullian

Gender: Male

Species: Unknown to everyone except for him

Alliance/Who are you working with: He helps Rember free the shifters

Age (Young shape-shifters 8-19, other any age): 20

Crush: No one

Appearance: Drake His eyes are a bright amber, but he always says they're just a very light brown. (He doesn't smoke)

Personality: He's always wandering around and gets bored easily. He enjoys science and finds a lot of things interesting. He's an optimist and is usually smiling, but he can be serious when he has to. He is an excellent liar and never spills a secret, even if somebody tries to make him. He likes to befriend shape shifters and helps them out, but he also likes to watch scientists do their tests. Deep down, he believes that what the scientists are doing is wrong, but he will only say so if he's with a close friend and no one else is around. He believes it will give away his actual species and he doesn't want anyone to know what he is.

Picture: Ah, I gave it to you above~

History: He found Rember one day and took her in as a little sibling, sort of. To add to the mystery of what he is, I'm only going to say that.

Other: He is well known through the SSSP lab as somebody the scientists are curious about, but they've never done any kind of tests on him before. He likes to act like both a shifter and a human at times, and it only confuses people more. If he is a shifter, you'll most likely never know any of his forms. If he's a human, you won't be able to make him work for the scientists. Rember doesn't know if he's a human or shifter, and he doesn't know Rember is a girl.

Personality: She's a neurologist, and so is extremely smart. Unfortunately, she is also very rude and snappish, and scarcely does anything just for the sake of being nice. This has made her very unpleasant to be around, so you're most likely to find her alone, which suites her just as well.

( Raven I'm gonna join this but first let me give you some critique~)

 

Now I'm not any approver or anything but I will help out a little smile.gif

 

"Apon" is spelled as " Upon"

"Shapeshifters have always alongside humans" I think there should be a " been" or "lived" somewhere in there.

"...as easily has talking" shouldn't the "has" be an "as"?

 

I'll be done for now because I'm on my iPod but you should probably make those minor adjustments :3

Share this post


Link to post

Awesome! Another thing you could fix is

 

For the shapeshifters- "if escape don't get caught" I think it would sound better as "if you manage to escape, don't get caught again."

For all of the people you could maybe see how it sounds if you put a "you" in the sentence(s) somewhere. :3

Redo the story in sec person

Hang on, I think you mean third. Second person is for instructions and directions. Third person is probably what you mean, as it is when you use the words "you", "he", and "it" and so on. :3

I think what Psycho Car said is a good idea :3 what I said was probably really confusing but if you put the intro into second person using you it would make sense. Or~ you can keep it in third and just ignore the other thing I recommended xd.png

In the guidelines and rules it says that if an approver doesn't get to it within two weeks you can PM them :3 However, I would just wait and make sure this doesn't die before it's achieved all it can smile.gif I agree with Cat though-this is probably as good as it will get biggrin.gif So you never know, an approver might come in and just say it's all good and approve it! wink.gif

Walking slowly after your prey you don't see the dark-haired man until it is too late.

 

What prey?

 

As you regain consciousness you look around to find your self in a reasonably well decorated bedroom? as your walk out of the room you find yourself in an expensive-looking apartment that has a window.

 

The colored text for "bedroom" is strange, given that you only do it once, but you regardless need appropriate capitalization for the next sentence. Also, "your" should be "you".

 

Walking over you open the blinds covering the window to see a high fence with several guards, then it comes back to you. You were caught.

 

The comma should be a period, and the first period (not the one you're adding) should be a colon.

 

Every once and awhile a shape-shifter would join with a human in which case they bind their souls together and share thoughts and memories as easily as talking, these pairs were called soul partners.

 

The comma can be a semicolon or a period; it's your choice.

 

The knowledge of shape-shifters was kept very well hidden until one soul partner pair revealed themselves to a scientist who, altho sworn to secrecy, started the Shape-Shift Study Program (or SSSP) that captures young shape-shifters and studies them their whole lives.

 

"although", not "altho". Altho isn't a word.

 

When it got back to the shape-shifter's leaders that some of there own had been captured they went to war with the government, but still in a secrecy that won't hold for long.

 

"there" should be "their".

 

Each group has it's own goals

 

"it's" should be "its". End this with a colon.

 

Scientist ~ preform tests on the shape-shifters and find out more about the species

 

"preform" should be "perform".

 

The captured shape-shifters are treated well and are allowed to roam freely inside the lab but are not allowed outside of it and are sometimes called for testing in which there are two kind of tests, physical and lab.

 

"in which" should be "of which".

 

Shape-shifter's headquarters are hidden in dense forest between the two other programs, unknown by all but there kind.

 

"there" should be "their".

 

The headquarters are made up primarily by huts, and altho they could use technology shape-shifters choose to stay stuck in medieval times.

 

"altho" should e "although". Why do they use medieval technology?

 

the huts of the headquarters are arranged in a circle with the leader's, war planning, and common areas in the middle with basic families branching out.

 

The T in "the" needs to be capitalized.

 

One of these forms s always a human and the other is different for each individual.

 

"s" should be "is".

 

Altho they are more skilled than the humans, shape-shifters have a disadvantage, numbers.

 

I think you know the deal here.

 

The ratio of humans to shape-shifters is more than 12 to 1 and that is just those that know of the shape-shifters this equals to about 200 shape shifters.

 

If there are only 200 shape-shifters, say that.

 

Is the animal form exactly like the animal?

I like helping and I was reading through the roleplays and found this one.

 

 

Slowly stalking a deer you are do concentrated on your prey

Well I'm not sure if this is on purpose but you are do? Is do supposed to be to?

 

Hopefully that helped, probably gonna join.

I agree with Cobra that it should be a "to" instead of a "do", however, the proper "to" to use would be "too". (lots of to's there xd.png)

 

Also,

Slowly stalking a deer you are do concentrated on your prey you don't see the dark-haired man until it is too late.

The sentence should have a comma or semi colon somewhere in it so there is a break. Maybe also rephrasing the sentence would be a good idea~

 

as your walk out of the room you find yourself in an expensive-looking apartment that has a window.

"as" should be capatilized.

 

then it comes back to you: You were caught.

"then" should be capatilized.

 

That's all I can see for now~ I'm not an approver though, so next time one comes by they'll have more information for you smile.gif

The ratio of humans to shape-shifters is more than 12 to 1 and that is just those that know of the shape-shifters this equals to 200 shape shifters.

A comma should be placed after 1. A "to" should be between "just" and "those". A semi colon or period should be after shape-shifters. If a period than capitalize the "this". And does the "to" need to be in the ending of the sentence? Maybe it could be replaced with an "about".

 

Shape-shifters earn about one form a year starting when they turn 8 and can earn them until the day they die.

Did you mean earn or learn?

 

Exceptions are eyes that stay the same unnaturally bright color as when human, as well and size, male shape-shifters may be slightly bigger in animal forms while females are usually the same size.

This is a run-on sentence. It could be broken into two different sentences and it would sound better. Try reading it out loud and you'll be able to tell where it should be broke up smile.gif

 

That's all I can see for now~ I'm going to join when it gets approved, also :>

I'm interested in this as well.

 

Also, some grammar stuff: (suggested changes are in orange. Sorry, might be hard to see.)

 

Shape-shifters earn about one form a year starting when they turn 8 and can earn them until the day they die. Of course, this is an approximation.

 

Young shape-shifters are faster and stronger than older ones when in human form, but they can not change into as many forms and do not know as much as the older generations.

 

When in animal form, shape-shifters look almost exactly like the said animal. Exceptions are eyes that stay the same unnaturally bright color as when human, as well and size,. Male shape-shifters may be slightly bigger in animal forms while females are usually the same size.

 

By the way, before the government found out about the shape shifters, did some people already know of their existence? And after they found out, did it become public knowledge, or did the information spread at all?

Only those who were soul-partners knew about shape-shifters. And it said that the shape-shifters kept the battle quiet, so no it did not become public.

((I was thinking right about . . . Now!))

 

As Glyph opened his eyes his mind was still foggy. Pushing himself up he immediately walked over to the door and pulled it open, looking down the hall of doors. Opening the one in front of him Glyph saw a bedroom exactly like his but empty. This place is nice Glyph thought to himself turning in a slow circle, I wonder if anyone else was caught? "Hello?"

Rember walked down the halls of the building all of the captured shifters were held in, her brown eyes looking around for any sign of a human. She heard somebody say hello and furrowed her eyebrows, looking down one hall. She gasped as she saw a boy with brown hair who looked close to her age and quickly ducked back behind the wall, mentally smacking herself for making noise.

November Anderson.

November opened her eyes slowly and heard someone say hello. "Hi? Who's there?" She said without moving from were she was. Were am I? Who spoke and how did I get here... Novembers mind raced with questions like that until she got a headache. She walked around, It seems quiet nice here. November sat down turning into a ocelot. She swished her tail back and forth, waiting for an answer.

As he heard an answer Glyph quickly morphed into a wolf and padded down the hall. Pushing the door open with his head Glyph quickly scented an ocelot and some very fresh human. Morphing again Glyph touched the sword at his hip, "Who are you?" he asked.
