probably not the last one if we're being honest
//TW for blood, gore, violence, drugs and other mainly cyberpunk-y elements//
The year is 3121. Plant life? Not the way we know it. Fauna? Of a sort. Weather patterns? Well, they exist. . .
Most of the world is an irradiated wasteland, filled with strange, deadly mutants and even deadlier anomalies. Body modification is the norm, whether for utility or appearance, the the latter is reserved for the Powers That Be of this devastated lump of rock. Nobody is safe, not even with the confines of the Glass Castle, a supposed "metropolis" of hope and dreams. A city that stretches miles into the earth's crust and miles into the lower atmosphere, to house those who are left.
The cruel reality is that their is no hope, no dream, that can be seen or attained. At least, not by legal or moral means. The city is overcrowded, infrastructure is starting to crumble and corruption runs rampant in both electronic programs and politics. The electricity is out on the lower levels more than half the time, and the times it is on is when the most violence happens. Even on the upper levels, gang violence is rampant anjd drugs are commonplace, the most notable of which is Skip, which allows you to blank out for the entirety of your worday and not have to worry about "the customer is always right" scenes.
Nobody is safe in this world.
But that's where Character A comes in.
A Streetrunner. Gutterkid. Cyberpunk.
A strange fusion of human and tek, the synthetica are a unique caste within the Glass Castle that are hated by most and worshipped by a few. The synthetica represent the dream that the Glass Castle once had and then lost, the shining example of perfect harmony between nature and machines.
There is one hated more than the others. A is a reviled figure in the city of false hopes, showing up to take out one target at a time in the upper echelons of the dystopian society of the Glass Castle.
Through some unknown series of events, A ends up at the very bottom layers, injured, where the Sludgers, Coolant Bunnies and Redfreaks go to hawk their illicit wares and get high, where only the poorest of the poor "survive." This place is a large natural cave system that has been repurposed after being discovered on accident by a hopeful trying to escape the clutches of the Cyberrippers.
They end their laborious journey upon the doorstep of Character B, a slightly hopeful - not very, just enough to take in one unfortunate soul - mostly un-cyberized human. They help A get better, and in return, A gives them financial help.
Slowly, though, B finds that they want to know more.
Who is this person that they'd helped? What do they do? And can they help?
In the process of finding the answers to these questions, dark secrets are revealed, with even darker consequences. . . can this pair help save the Glass City from itself, or will they watch as it falls? Only time will tell. . .
if you haven't noticed it's a cyberpunk roleplay lol; i'd like to be A, and if this could be FxF that would be fantabulous
Cursing and stuff is fine, and is in fact encouraged (i'll provide a link to homemade cyberpunk insults/slang during the course of the first few pages lol)
Don't be rude OOC; IC, anything goes!
Smut will either be FTB or PMs lol
