"Okay. Promise you won't scream?"

"I promise…"

"…"

"–I know I said I wouldn't scream but…"


The year is 2119. Mankind has spread to the stars, though not very far. There are colonies on Mars and the Moon, and even one on Alpha Centauri, with space stations orbiting many of the planets in our solar system. The one thing that hasn't been found yet? Aliens. There's been traces, sure. Radio signals, a blip and then gone. Ghosts in the system. Inexplicable objects that shoot past on the sensors, too fast to hail and gone again in a blink.

Your character is a young person living on either Earth or Mars. They and their best friend, Lux, spend their days in school and dreaming of their futures among the stars, laughing together and wondering what else is out there in the vast, wide universe.

Lux, though, is hiding a secret. A rather large one. They aren't quite…human. They've hidden this secret from their friend for years, and one day they are forced to reveal it to their friend, because they need their help.


Basically, I'm Lux and you'd be the other character. Sci fi, friendship. Could be romance, if you wanna do that, I don't really care either way. I just want,,, a soft, fun RP that also has some sci-fi elements? Idk how to explain it but do you get what I mean?

Rules:

  • Andrew's rules apply
  • Smut will go to PMs
  • Would prefer my fellow RPer be at least 16, please, simply for my peace of mind :)
  • Three sentences per reply at the minimum, and preferably good grammar. I understand we all make some mistakes sometimes and I'm not going to needle you for making one, but I do prefer good grammar please
  • I reserve the right to say no

Temp will be posted soon

Name: Lux Taemin
Nicknames:
Gender and Sexuality: Their species' sex and gender binaries are different from humans, but their genitalia are pretty close to AMAB, and their preferred pronouns are they/them (more details about their species' sex and gender binaries will probably come out in RP; they use human pronouns and human terms to refer to their body and gender, though their species would use different words to describe similar ideas). They are pan, in terms of sexuality
Age: 17
Looks: Lux has warm, light brown skin, and green eyes. They have long hair hanging just past their shoulders, colored a dark purple. Most people assume that it's dyed or that they got genetically altered so it would grow in that tone. It grows that tone naturally, and has since they were born. They stand at about 5'8", with a slim, lanky body shape, and long thin fingers. They have white freckles dotted across the bridge of their nose, which they usually cover up with makeup so that people don't ask too many questions. Their friend has likely seen the freckles but, again, would assume them to be body mods, and that's often what Lux tells people they are. Their most unique feature? A pair of rabbit-like ears where a human has, well, ears. They pin these ears back against their head using hair clips, and cover them with their hair. A picrew

June went back to the area of the store place with the shelves that had random stuff and to her quiver, she dumped out her arrows and pulled the bottom piece out revealing a small compartment of that had papers, papers from Darius’ book. Ones of his family, his friends, and her brother. She stuck the picture in it, taking out the other papers, one had a sketch of Devon.
She looked at it, tears falling from her face, she avoided crying in front of others, she didn’t like to talk about her problems, nor for anyone to see her like this, especially not Darius. After all, he cared to much. It would only hurt if she had him ask. Sometimes she wished Darius would remember, then maybe she wouldn’t have to hold the burden of Devon’s memory on her shoulders alone. It would be so much better that way. She wiped the tears from her face, but they kept falling. The drops smearing the sketch.

The announcement initially surprised Casey but hearing the end of it, the part about the website he decided to check it out, carefully getting onto the website with one computer, he opened another to view the programing of it. He was able to do this after he broke the computer in a way that all it showed was the coding. The mainframe. The work behind a simple looking website. It had took him awhile to figure out how to disconnect it to the interweb, without it being useless. It was virtually untraceable, but virtually useless. He knew what the coding was supposed to look like if it was totally secure, but while he watched the code flow over the screen he saw a flaw. One of the millions of numbers was off. He went to the website and started doing his hacking. He used many different redirectors until he felt secure enough to continue, which only took moments. He had a dangerous level of curiosity and a rebellious attitude. He hacked into and downloaded as many small classified documents to a USB as he could. Carefully watching the code out of the corner of his eye to see if anything changed.

@Icefire

(alright!)
(gonna start with them hanging out after school, maybe? Lux has not spilled their secret yet)

Lux was laying across their bed, head hanging down and hair dangling towards the floor, a faint smile tugging on the corners of their mouth. "I hate Mr Gallow." they commented. "For science? He's boring as fuck. Have you ever had him?" there were quite a few teachers at their school, and Lux had had the bad luck to get Mr Gallow. Mr Gallow was, well, known for being a pretty shitty teacher, who could make any subject boring as dirt.

@CaseyJ group

Alex was sitting in the floor beside the bed. He shrugged, "you know I don't care to learn names right? I very much could have had him, not that I would have payed attention" He smiled. "but I have heard about him, he sounds like a true bore, wouldn't be surprised if half his class sleeps the whole time." he looked over a Lux, "your blood is going to rush to your head and make you pass out if you stay like that to long". Alex brushed his hair out of his face and adjusted his glasses.

@Icefire

Lux flashed him a grin, rolling onto their stomach and looking down at Alex. "Eh, I guess so." they replied. "Either way, he can suck it. I hate him so much." they adjusted their hair, careful to ensure their ears were still hidden. "Anyways." they looked over at Alex. "What was your school day like today?" they didn't share many classes with Alex, so they hadn't really had the chance to catch up during the day.

@CaseyJ group

Alex shrugged, "uh I didn't pay attention" He said with a half laugh. He yawned and leaned against the bed, turning his head to face Lux. Even though he slept for most of his classes, he could still sleep. It's what he gets for staying up all night playing games.

@Icefire

(by the way, do you have any triggers?)

"Not to anything?" Lux arched an eyebrow. They had always been curious, about everything, and while Alex was still their best friend, sometimes it was a wonder to them, that the other person could sleep through all their classes. Lux wanted to learn, even if the teachers were boring as hell and homework made them want to slam their head against the wall.

@CaseyJ group

(Nope, none that I know of)
Alex laughed, “of course not, I can easily get the info from the text book, like I need to pay attention” He fake scoffed. “Yeah I know, you should pay attention, it’s a wonder your not failing” he said mimicking his parents voice. “But it doesn’t matter does it, if I pay attention?” He asked going on about it like he often did.

@Icefire

(alright)

They shrugged. "Still though. You might miss things that aren't in the textbook." They said. Their attitude towards learning was very different from Alex, but that was okay.

@CaseyJ group

Alex shrugged, "thats what I have you for right?" He smiled at Lux. He knew he could always borrow notes and such from Lux, even if they didn't have the same classes, he would still use Lux's notes.
