The year is 1532 AD and the King of Pyeonghwa passed away from health complications. While leaving behind the Queen, he also left behind two princes. One who is of age while the other is very much younger. The elder son is expected to take the throne at the beginning of the next month, although there is just one peculiar thing about the heir….
A is a lady in waiting to the Queen; she comes from a noble family. Her uncle is a well known physician in the kingdom due to his success with treating the royal family and nobles. For most of A's life, she spent it working for her uncle till her parents decided to give her over to the royal palace. From there, A has herself up to be one of the most trustworthy royal servants ever. There is not a single task or problem she can take care of.
Everyone in the palace thinks that there is something wrong with B. He is too pale beyond belief. No matter where he goes, he always under an umbrella unless it's nighttime. Whenever he touches metal, he has to have on gloves. He gets really sleepy in the day but very energetic at night. Not to mention, he is not interested in getting married right away. B is just so out of the ordinary, and not just in a heir to the throne kind of way. Some believe the prince is actually a bloodlust creature of the night while most believe he is only ill. Doctors nor priests can help figure out why B is so unique.
One morning the Queen calls for A to meet her. Her Majesty is desperate. There is only four weeks till B becomes the next king. She wants to find out what B's problem is so they can help him before the succession of the throne. Somehow she believes that A can help with this being an extraordinary court lady and the niece of a talented doctor. Her Majesty's plan is to have A with B from sunset to the late evening, watching over the prince, and talking to/examining him in order to find out what is wrong. Before A can say anything, the Queen gives her seven rules:
Never let him out of your sight for more than a minute. Any longer, you will have to find him. If he's gone and not on castle grounds, you will be punished. The prince does spend most of his evenings in his chamber, so this should not be a problem.
When entering and leaving, check to see how Your Royal Highness is feeling. You may do so by his wrist and forehead. Doctors usually avoid having to check for his heartbeat via neck; he prefers if no one pays attention to that area.
Before coming in, you must leave anything that is iron and sharp at the door; including your binyeol. The guards outside will take care of them while you are there.
You have to be at least four steps away from him. Only when checking for his heartbeat and temperature, you are allowed to be close.
Address him as Your Royal Highness and Sir; nothing else. Even if he tells you to call him something else, follow my orders.
Do not be afraid of him and do not show it. Feeding his precarious needs is not going to help with anything. You are there to keep an eye on him, to figure out what is wrong with our soon to be king. Never forget that.
Four weeks, that is how long you have to solve this. You are expected to follow my orders, be there every evening, not run off, and cure him. Please find out what is wrong, the whole kingdom depends on you.
So many have run off out of B's bed chamber refusing to go back. No success has been made even before the previous king's untimely death. Will A be able to work her way around B's odd antics? Or is she going to dash out like the rest? Perhaps, there is more than meets the eye. Who knows? All could be revealed under the pale moonlight.
- Andrew's rules
- Be as active as possible. If you can only send one to two responses a day, that is perfectly fine. I'm a bit busy right now so I might only be responding so much in a day.
- This is a literate rp, at least one paragraph per response with good grammar and spelling.
- Keep in mind this rp is somewhat based off of a show called "The Scholar Who Walks at Night" which takes place during the Joseon dynasty. The rp takes place in the same time period only in a made-up dynasty though.
- ^Also since this is a vampire x human rp, there is going to be blood as well as some violence and gore.
- Having minor characters is a-okay with me; just as long as they make sense and help drive the plot.
- Romance is also more than chill, this is meant to be a slow-burn romance. We're gonna keep it PG-13.
- If you have any ideas to add onto the rp, please let me know.
I don't really have much to say except I'm sorry if this is a lot to read. Might add more to the list, but it's all good for now. For this I am going to be B and you, whoever joins, will be A. When someone does join, I'll probably ask for a sample. Afterwards I'll put up a template. I really do stress to read the rules before joining. If you have any questions, just ask. :D
