Bethel

  • @naiya-dyani

    Yep! We tend to move around a lot so I haven’t ever been in a good place for horses– not to mention the cost of transporting one. Otherwise I would love to have one. 😛

    Your WIP sounds neat! And not stupid at all. (And Eyy, INFP. My favorite! XD)  I struggle with themes as well,  but I’m sure you can pull it off!

    Well, I’m c…[Read more]

  • @naiya-dyani Greetings and Welcome!

    I, completely unlike @evelyn here, haven’t been around a whole lot. But I recently decided that I should be, and so here I am. *Sighs*

    I’m pretty sure that everyone here has a certain degree of weirdness, to be honest. I think you have to be weird to be a writer. 🙂

    Anyway, I’m Bethel, and I like (you’re…[Read more]

    Okay. I have decided to just take Kai out… for now. The Character I have decided to bring is slightly insane, very nice, and has a pet toad. Is there anyone in particular that I should put her next to?

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 1 month ago

    Do you guys mind if I jump back in? Either by continuing with Kai, or bringing in a new Character. (Or If I wanted to be really ambitous, with both! :P)

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 3 months ago

    Kai bounced out of his cage, “Thanks! What’s your name? Mine’s Kai. Does your cat have a name?” He looked back at the nice lady, whose hands were stretched out so she wouldn’t bump into anything. So she was blind. He stepped up to her, “Miss, do you need me to hold your hand so you don’t run into things? What’s your name? Did they make you blind…[Read more]

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 3 months ago

    Augh, I need an experiment for Kai. What sort of trauma can I put my poor kiddo through?

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 3 months ago

    Kai rubbed his eyes and tried to smile at the girl. “What’s a lab?” He asked, and sniffed. He picked up his wooden sword and tied it back around his waist. “Are there dragons here?” He began climbing the bars again. It was then he noticed the man and his cat. The man noticed him and put a finger to his lips. Kai nodded, and he clamped his mouth shut.

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 3 months ago

    Kai tried not to cry– in his mind, Knights didn’t cry, and besides, the nice girl had told him to be brave. But he watched as one by one the suits came and led the others out of their cages, his positive enthusiasm, that usually knew no bounds, began to crack, When the scream echoed from a room elsewhere in the lab, it broke, and he burst into…[Read more]

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 3 months ago

    *screams and begins running around in circles* I really need to post. I’ll try to do so later this evening. Also, does anyone have any idea as to what experiment I should have Kai undergo? I’m kinda stumped…

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 3 months ago

    Same, @countryboy77 Same.

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 3 months ago

    *screams* I forgot about this. I’m so sorry.

    @kari-karast

    Brilliant. Thanks. Also, I’ll try to post soon.

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 4 months ago

    I *raises hand* have a couple questions? What sort of experiments do you have in mind for our sharacters? Why are these people doing this? Who are they working for? is all this classified? What do they want?

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 4 months ago

    Kai nodded, and beamed proudly at the girl. She was nice. (Ember), “Yep. My name’s Kai, what’s–” He stopped, noticing the Suits. They opened Phoenix’s cage. “Hey!” He shouted. “Where are you taking him?”

    The Suits ignored him. Pheonix tried breaking from them, and Kai held his breath. Then he saw the suit aiming his tranquilizing gun. “Mr.…[Read more]

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 4 months ago

    Kai narrowed his eyes at Pheonix, “Are you just saying that because you don’t want me to be worried?” He smiled, “It’s okay though. I think you’re right. Everything’ll be fine.” Then he frowned, looking at Keldan “Is that a knight?” He looked back at Pheonix, “Do you think he’s a knight? You know, I’m going to be a knight when I grow up. And I’ll…[Read more]

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 4 months ago

    Btw, @kari-karast I realized that I had more time than I thought I did, so I decided just to read back on what has already been written and jump on in.

    ——–

    Kai grinned, “There. Now you’re smiling. Hello Mr. Pheonix– My mama says I have to call adults Mr. or Mrs.– You know, my older sister calls me little monkey too. I have two sisters and…[Read more]

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 4 months ago

    The last thing Kai remembered was going to sleep the night before. Now he was in a cage. He looked around. There were other people in cages next to him, too. “Hi!” Kai said brightly to the people around him, “My name’s Kai, what’s yours? Do you know where we are?” He began climbing the bars of his cage, until he was hanging upsidedown. “I like it…[Read more]

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 4 months ago

    @kari-karast

    Thank you! So I think I’m going to wait and watch for a bit before jumping in, if that’s fine. Just because I’m kinda busy today. And because I can already hear my characters threatening to murder me for doing this to my little Kai.

  • Bethel replied to the topic RPfL- 5.0 in the forum Characters 1 year, 4 months ago

    @kari-karast

    I see. XD Can you give me the link to the doc… I seem to have lost it and I thought I heard someone mentioning something about a plot for this one?
