The crows see it all. Sitting on powerlines and hovering above the old junior high, past the chainlink fence, a few blocks off. Flocking to the barren or browned, red and deep green trees, watching the small woods. They see who goes in, out. Those who run off, startled by something harmless. Those who stay, especially. Namely, the Moths.

(sorry for the short intro)

Hey! ✌ I'm feeling very in the mood for an autumnal ten-percent school-ninety-percent forest fantasy RP!

It's loosely inspired by Over the Garden Wall, Wildwood by Colin Meloy, Pilu of the Woods, and generally the fall season! (please don't bully me about the surprising amount of Halloween movies I haven't watched hahaha)

RULES/PREFERENCES-

  • Andrew's rules

  • Swearing is allowed, just keep it minimal (no slurs, please)

  • No triggers please, if you think something might be a trigger, ask if it's alright first :) generally keep it lighthearted
  • Should be pretty young, think 13, 14? About middle school-age

  • There are humans and there are Moths! Moths are,, basically moth-people. They have antennae and tend to have fluffier, lighter hair, darker skin, pointy lil ears (no wings). They are very attuned to the forest and environment, especially the moon (ex: keep track of moon phases, can feel seasons changing, etc) I can link some drawings of Moths if needed :)

  • If it makes sense, please try to make human names human-sounding, if that makes any sense. This takes place in a more realistic setting, besides the fact that, y'know… moth people exist.

  • Keep the Moth/human ratio balanced, please. at least one or two humans, at least one or two Moths.

  • You've probably heard this a million times, but please keep everyone original; make sure your character is not too similar to another.

  • Please try to be posting often enough so that we don't have to stop for too long, please don't join if you can't be consistent :] if there's something specific happening for a moment that's fine and I get it,, don't push yourself! but if it's taking longer than three days, please leave/don't join, please and thank you <3

Ok, finally, the character template!

@Tired-but-passionate
Name: Zalia Phlox
Age: 14
Gender, orientation: non-binary femme, generally sapphic?
Physical appearance: human design and moth fairy design so like probably a combination of both of these?
Hobbies: sleeping, reading, boxing, being angry on Twitter /j
Likes: survival and the moon, nature, pretty lights and stuff, food
Dislikes: people, travel, staying still for too long, people asking for or stealing their food
Personality: Zalia is normally a quiet, but clever person with a lot to say, but finds it difficult to express themself. They have anger issues, but with their tendency to keep their mouth shut, it can be easy to mistake them for someone who is just aloof or introverted. More often they are likely fuming about something but can’t do anything about it. They also find it difficult to make social connections, either pushing people away or surprising them with an insult that had burst out of them. They don’t seem to understand how hurtful they can be though, and they like being alone.
More info (optional): Zalia was raised by a single dad, and overall they’re well off, but Zalia is not very well adjusted at school. Survival is the only thing they’re interested in, so that’s the only good grade they have.

@EtherealDreamer
Name: Ezra Angelos
Age: 14
Gender, orientation: Cisgender, male.
Physical appearance (description or image): Ezra is tall, standing at six feet, but he gives off that depressed/grunge vibe because he walks hunched over, due to his insecurities about his height. He is lanky and thin, barely weighing 115 pounds and his facial features are considered dominantly feminine. He has high angular cheekbones, with a straight, narrow nose and slightly upturned double lidded hazel eyes due to his asian american heritage. He has pouty, plump lips and his hair goes around his head in a halo of black fluffy loose curls.
Hobbies: Sketching, flower picking, thrifting.
Likes: buying clothes, dogs and drawing koi fish.
Dislikes: bullies, people who brag about their wealth.
Personality: Ezra is quiet and reserved, usually lost in a book or his art. He only really opens up if he feels from the start of talking to someone, that they are friend potential. Once he does open up he is humorous, caring and sensitive.
More info (optional):

Ezra is the youngest of six.
his mother is asian, his father is American.
his oldest sibling is his sister Hana, and she is 39 years old with a six year old son named Conley.
he's a ✨ p i s c e s ✨

@ScotchTapeWorm
Name: Ivory Red
Age: 14
Gender, orientation: Female, Straight
Physical appearance: Ivory has darker skin, and isn't particularly tall. Still 4'11" and constantly swearing she'll get her growth spurt soon. Her hair is perpetually styled in two puffballs on the sides of her head, or just one like a ponytail. She loves braids, but can't get them often. A round face, with a massive, slightly crooked smile, and small ears and nose. Almond shaped eyes that are a honey colored brown, even when not in direct sunlight.
Hobbies: Watching TV shows, obsessing over books, and feeding cats.
Likes: Drawing(badly), screaming, and being "weird"
Dislikes: Thinking too much, being hurt, and math
Personality:I think we all like to block out middle school as much as possible when we get older, mostly for our own sake. But guys- Middle schoolers are weird. Painfully weird. We all had that kid who swore they were a vampire or a wolf or something. Ivory is strange, but in the "I'm not like other girls" way. She obsesses over things she thinks are weird and quirky, but are actually mainstream. She reads twilight and warrior cats, a terrifying combination I know. But still, she is a really sweet girl underneath all the cringe, she just needs to mature more. Ivory genuinely loves her friends and to read, and if she didn't feel the pressure to be different so much from her mind, she'd be content just being herself. She has interests, but pushes the away for arbitrary reasons and it actually terrified of change.
More info: Ivory is average in grades, mostly because she doesn't push herself. She really loves to make bracelets. She's also a really good dancer, she's been taking classes since she was three.

@lemonwitch (me ;))
Name: Amar
Age: 13
Gender, orientation: male, and it doesn't matter to him (he doesn't really care)
Physical appearance (description or image): Amarr has dark brown hair that is on the longer side for a guy and darker brown skin, freckled. He is 5'3, about average build. His antennae look like the picture on the bottom of the post, and he wears a grayoversized sweater and jeans (both of which he stole, which is common for Moths). The edges of his sleeves are chewed up and torn, it's like fidgeting for Moths (like playing with the chain on a necklace or something).
Hobbies: Climbing random things, collecting plants and quartz he finds on the ground, running
Likes: Any physical activity, other people, foraging
Dislikes: Water, summer, blood, arguing

Personality: Amar can be and is very energetic, but is still sensible. He ends up clearing arguments and disputes between siblings and friends. He is very skilled in foraging and finding plants for medicinal purposes. Amar wants to be a medic but, as previously mentioned, is afraid of blood. He is also very curious and tends to pry into other people's conversations or things about them in general. He just really likes being around other people and wants to impress them or make a good time for everyone, by any means possible.

@Tired-but-passionate

(Moood. Also I love Over the Garden Wall too so there’s that haha. Hmm, not sure if I wanna join tho? I already have a lot on my plate and I’m worried if I join I’ll have to drop it ^^;)

@ScotchTapeWorm group

(… me clutching my mothman pins and badges …. I think I'd like to join if you'd have me. One question though. Are the Moths still drawn to light in this?)

@lemonwitch bubble_chart

(Of course! And, yes- about the whole nocturnal thing, it's more like an energy increase at night than a decrease in the day, and attracted to light.)

@lemonwitch bubble_chart

(not at all! im a bit flowery when it comes to language, so mine might be a bit longer but ill keep it medium, currently in an rp with some longer responses. but i dont mind at all! :))

@EtherealDreamer

(He is great! But he is a bit over the age range, which is fine so long as there is a reason for it, so what would that be?)

(oh sorry, I read the starter post but I forgot, I'll just change his age real quick, since changing that won't change anything about him.)
