I really, really, REALLY want to be a role player, but every time I join a role play it dies as soon as I start or I freak out and end up quiting due to awkwardness. I'm always afriad I'm going to do something wrong because I don't know how to RP here and that scares me to dea.th. :/

Anybody have any tips on how I could fix my RPing awkwardness problem? Thanks!

Wait... You're looking at this..? 

Oh, hi! So, you think you're up for this? Amazing! Where do we begin...?

HERE! DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUN!!! >:D

Ah! I know! First, we'll set down some rules.

 

Rules of Marg's siggy:

 

  1. Don't touch anything, understand?
  2. Don't touch me.
  3. Don't sneeze on my gifs.
  4. Always laugh, otherwise you're boring.
  5. No judging, please! ^..^

Now, I'm sure we understand each other now. Shall we continue?

 

 

WARNING:

 

Do not continue if you are prone to seizures are have a hard time laughing.

 

HOLD IT! WAIT! -pauses time-

Now we can continue! -un-pauses- :D

Now you're entering a world beyond that which is known to men.

 

You know why you should panic?

 

First I'll tell you a little bit about myself.

Hi! I'm Marg!

 

 

The beautiful drawings done by jada:

 

 

 

Me when I go to dinner:

My every morning:

Library day:

When someone shakes my hand:

When someone thinks I'm crazy:

When I try to go anywhere:

Me after I finish an amazing book:

Whenever something bad happens:

When something good happens:

When someone asks me if I like chocolate:

These are some different things people find when they turn around and look at me:


Did you know

?

Me every day, for real:

Don't ask about the following:

This is how I dance:

 

Now, how about we run through my friends? Like, all of them? Yeah, I'll make you suffer before you can continue! Mwahahaha!

 

Dragon

Dragon is my super cool BFF.

I have to admit when I first met her, she kind of scared me. Kind of. But now I just think she's amazing. ^..^ See? She looks amazing, right?

I guess after we hung out for a while, she was like,

and we became good freeeends.

She's also my Princess Luna. In other words, you can't have her.

(Dragon rules all gif credit to Mangopopcorn. Thanks Mangopopcorn!)

As you can see, we like MLP too much.

Here's us:

 

Thunder

Guess what? Thunder's my bro/uncle! Weird, huh? Yeah!

He ends up like this a lot:

I can also imagine him telling me this:

As you can see, he's my Star Wars friend. In other words

Master

Master's really cool (even if he doesn't think so) and a great friend. He could stand to play more often, but I'm fine just as long as I see him once in a while.

He totally Son of Hades. o.o

Let's face it, he's probably even a little cooler than Nico himself. :3

 

Swag

Swag's my aunt and super cool chocolate friend! :O

I like to be hyper with her.

Look at it! Love it!

She's made of glitter btw!

She likes Sans.

 

 

Jess

Jess is another amazing friend! Omg, where are they all coming from? Are they falling from the sky? >:O

Jess is all

HAHAHA, JESS! I WISH I COULD SEE YOUR FACE WHEN YOU SEE THAT YOU'RE ON MY SIGGY!!! XD

Now you can be like

Jess is also a wizard, btw.

Another Undertale fan here!

 

 

Martin

Martin's a long time friend, but I wasn't really friends with him until about a year ago. Now I know he's crazy. What am I saying? I'm crazy too!

Don't ask him to shut up. He won't. He'll probably just laugh and look evil.

 

Numb

Now's the time I bring Numb in! You know why? Because she's the Joke President!

Vote Numb! She can throw bananas!

She likes rocks.

Right, sorry. Minerals.

 

 

Charly (or C)

Sadly, I don't get to see her that often because she lives far away. That doesn't mean she's not an awesome friend, though! I've been getting to know her better lately and she's awesome-sauce!

 

This is what my friends and I do all day! ^..^

Don't touch any of my friends. If you do, this will happen:

Then after you've almost been destroyed:

 

 

Now it's time for....

 

A psychedelic freak out!!! YAY!

 

 

 

 

Well, I must be off now. And remember

hey! its fine. Roleplaying is fun, its like writing a story, but from only one character's perspective. If you'd like, PM me and we can practice a roleplay exchange. Or we could do one right here. Actually, lets do that. If you wish, we can do an interaction and I can show you the ropes. It is quite easy and trufully, you will probably catch on yourself if you just read a roleplay.

Sure thing! So, just create a character name (human) and we can rp an interaction at school. Boring but simple. It will show you the ropes etc.

((Then I'll be Wolf. We can start with a simple interaction. When talking out of character, it's  a best to use brackets  I or something. So, the scenario, We know each other from school and we see each other at say- a store? XD. Suuuuper normal but whatever. I'll go first. So, you can choose to go first person or third person. It doesn't matter, I choose 3rd person mainly because I find saying 'I' gets repetitive. Though everyone has their own preference.))

 

 

Wolf stared at the yellow notebook in her hands. She touched the pen to paper and checked off 'milk' from her shopping list. All she needed was ceral and oranges, then she could get out of this place! Wolf pushed her cart through the refrigerator isle, only stoping when she saw a flash of familar colored hair. Could it be? Wolf awkwardly creened her neck around to see the face of the person, it was! Marg from chem class! Wolf's stomach did a small flip, she wanted to retreat but as of now, she was socially bound to say hello, even if she diddnt know Marg that well. Wolf coughed.

"Marg? Hi!" She waved, trying her best not to be too awkward.

 

 

 

((So, I kind of set up our two characters relationship with each other in that short post. It's easy to catch in though.:> ))

((Thanks bunches!))

 

I'd gone to the store to grab some burger buns for the cookout my dad was having when I passed someone that I thought looked familiar out of the corner of my eye. I didn't look, though, afraid of it being a robber instead, until I heard her say my name.

I turned around and saw Wolf, a girl I went to school with. I didn't know her very well and I was bad at starting friendships, but I liked her well enough so I gave her a giant smile and waved.

"Hey!" I said. "How's it going with you?"

 

((Is this any good?))

((Yeah. It's perfect. I usually put the character name as my subject, just so people can know who I am Rping and that I'm not talking out of character. Next time you post tho, don't reply directly to this post. Mainly because in actual Roleplaying, we don't reply.))

 

Marg grinned from ear to ear at Wolf, who offered a tight smile in response.

"Hey!" Marg exclaimed, "how's it going with you?" Wolf shrugged, she wasn't the best at boring small talk. But she at least had to try.

"Uhm. Well, I needed milk. So I came to the store." She said scartching her head. "Then I saw that cupcakes were on sale and I couldn't pass them up." Wolf gave Marg a nervous smirk.

 

Small talk was so boring! Wolf figidted needing something interesting to happen.

 

((So, usually, we have forms so you have your character previously planned out etc. But, since we don't here you might discover something interesting about your characters Personality that you didnt know before. Like, I discovered that Wolf is apparently ADHD.))

Wiggles the whispering death ate my subject

If it helps a very large chunk of RPs d.ie before they get started. It's actually very difficult for RPs not to d.ie to the point of it being frustrating so it's not just you. It's the nature of big RPs. You just have to keep going for it until you find one that lasts. Setting up a one on one RP with a friend can be a good place to start. If said friend is an active RPer one on one RPs can actully be more stable than the big ones. They also don't get away from you the way group ones do so they're good practice.

Hypergoof.

Seen here with a snow nadder and a statue Termite gave her because she couldn't sell it.

(Wiggles bit it's left arm off.)

Below is my profile pic made bigger to show the amazing detail

It's Hypergoof going berserk with a durian mace.

(Drawn by my amazing sister)

(She even drew the fur on the shoes)

            (My in game character)- A friendly young Viking who interacts better with dragons than with people. This is partly because although she now lives on Berk her family was originally from the Berserker tribe. When Dagger came to power Hypergoof, her sister and her parents were forced to flee as they were terrified of their new chief after he threatened to kill Hypergoof's parents for speaking out. The family found a new home on Berk. After working hard to get the Hooligans (what Hiccup's tribe was called in the books) to trust her (mostly) Hypergoof got a job working at a dragon rehabilitation center which is part of the reason she knows so many dragons. Hypergoof has a few problems. One, she is terrified of hot things. (A problem I myself have) She will not touch any stoker class dragons as a result. (With the exception of two individuals) She will still try to help a injured stoker as long as she doesn't have to touch it. Her other problem is also based on one of mine. I am Hypersensitive to sound and certain noises hurt me. Hypergoof has this too but in her the pain can cause her to go Berserk. One of the worst noises is whistling. She will attack anyone who does it near her. (Note this does not mean that I will fire troll those who's character whistles in game. It is a character trait for role playing and storytelling only.) Hypergoof also can't stand large crowds for too long. She will often retreat if things get too noisy. Hypergoof is a good fisher and farmer but a horrible fighter. (Unless she goes Berserk in which case she may get hurt but will do significant damage to her opponent.) She is generally friendly unless she gets stressed out in which case she becomes snappy. Most of her friends are dragons. Because of this Hypergoof has picked up dragoneese and speaks it quite fluently.

 

 

 

 

Littlebird (Hypergoof's sister) and Hypergoof's parents don't have much back story at the moment. None are in game.

 

 

Termite- Is one of Hypergoof's few human friends. (She is in game now as HypersFriendTermite. The chances of seeing her are low though. If seen she will probably be with Wiggles.) She is a woodworker hence the name. She didn't trust Hypergoof when they first met but soon found that they had a lot in common. She is the true trainer of Wiggles but often leaves him with Hypergoof when she must work on something.  Hypergoof and Termite like to take dragon food out into the wilderness ware they wait to see what shows up. A pass time they lovingly call dragonwaching.

 

 

 

 

Wiggles 

(wants to chew on Mildew's new chair just off camera)

(FUN FACT: Mildew is one of the only people Wiggles doesn't like)

            A young rambunctious whispering death with a sweet heart but a naughty mind. Hypergoof's friend Termite adopted him as a baby when his whole family was killed by dragon slayers. Unlike most of his species Wiggles could be described as... cuddly. He wants to be friends with everyone he meets and seems completely oblivious to his size and appearance. He simply does not understand that he is scary and is baffled that some people won't play with him or give him a hug. His best friend growing up was Termite's mutt of a dog Drool, and Wiggles learned the odd habit of waging his tail from his canine friend. Most dignified dragons (especially whispering deaths) are appalled by the behavior but no amount of laughing at Wiggles or begging him to stop for the sake of dignity will change anything. Wiggles simply doesn't care. All that matters to him is how much fun he's having. He will even allow himself to be dressed up for snoggletog and will parade around in the Jingle bells and antlers with pride. (As seen here.) Wiggles is an all around charming and sweet creacher but he is not without flaws. He can not be left alone for more than five minutes or else he will chew on something, especially furniture. Usually damaging it beyond repair. He can not be taken to a marketplace because the concept that Termite "hasn't bought that yet and so he shouldn't eat it" is something he can not seem to grasp. Nore is the one that "That doesn't belong to us!" Termite has taken to carrying a bag of dried mutton strips (Mutton is Wiggles's favorite) to redirect the serpent's attention if she catches him with the look in his eyes that she learned to recognize as his "I'm going to chew on that" face. Despite her best efforts Wiggles is a hand full and Termite often leaves him with Hypergoof if she has to go do some woodworking. Wiggles thinks of Termite as his mother but he thinks of Hypergoof as a friend and enjoys playing with her. Hypergoof shows no fear towards him at all and will even let Wiggles hug her if he asks permission first. (Hypergoof does not like being touched without warning but will happily accept a hug from a friend.) Interestingly Hypergoof found that Wiggles is a very good racer despite his poor eyesight.

 

 

 

Cuteseepie

(Relaxing at home)

          The first dragon Hypergoof ever rescued and one of her closest friends. He is a Pink and Blue deadly nadder. When he was a hatchling his curiosity got the better of him. He wandered away from his nest in the dead of winter and found himself lost in a blizzard which would have been the end of him if he hadn't stumbled onto the front lawn of Hypergoof's house. His crys alerted the family who quickly took him in out of the cold and thus saved his life. Cuteseepie and Hypergoof have been friends ever since. Cuteseepie has a mellow gentle nature broken up occasionally for excitement at an adventure. He will defend Hypergoof or if need be prevent her from attacking someone who whistled. His level headedness balances out against Hypergoof's goofyness rather nicely. 

 

 

 

Ziggy

(Showing off again)

          A skrill that Hypergoof found injured while dragon watching. Her success in helping him helped her get the job she currently has and also built up a friendship between Hypergoof and Ziggy. It probably helped that Ziggy is not a very old skrill, only having just left his parents, before somehow getting hurt. Much like a cat Ziggy tries to be more dignified than he really is. One moment showing off his impressive wingspan with a majestic yawn and the next he's off chaiseing a light or a leaf when he thinks no one is looking. He often roles his eyes when Hypergoof playfully teases him by saying his name in a funny pitch or calling him "The Zigster" but a poorly hidden grin betrays the fact that he doesn't mind as much as he lets on. Ziggy is decently friendly to most people who don't insult his dignity (only his close friends are allowed to do that) but he is still technically a wild skrill. He spends most of his time off chaising storms and doing whatever else wild skrills do only he stops by every once in a while to visit Hypergoof. Manny people wonder why he keeps coming back as he always seems more annoyed with Hypergoof than anything but it is just a mask. A false front. He secretly really enjoys her company. In fact perhaps Hypergoof's absurdity amuses him. FUN FACT: Before meeting Ziggy it was Hypergoof's life dream to see a live skrill. (Partly her Berserker heritage) For her meeting Ziggy was akin to meeting a celebrity. Of course things got more normal between them as they got to know each other but Hypergoof is still pretty darn proud that a skrill let her be his friend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Causemoe

(Knows the owner of this house hates it when he sits there)

           A young flightmare who was one of Ziggy's friends then also became Hypergoof's friend when Ziggy brought him to Berk. Unlike Ziggy though, Causemoe decided that he liked Berk and the school so much that he would stay. He is a complete showoff and loves to be the center of attention. He can get huffy if he finds someone who does one of his favorite things better than him. He especially hates it that Wanda can glow brighter than him. She often tones down her glow when she's near him to spare his feelings.

 

 

 

 

 

Wanda

(Knows the best places for the best view)

         As mentioned before, Hypergoof is scared of stoker class dragons. When approached by a fireworm her normal reaction is to flip out as if the little dragon was a bee. Wanda however is an exception to this rule and not only is she a fireworm but she is a fireworm queen. Hypergoof once got herself lost in a snowstorm and was found by one of Wanda's workers unconscious and soon to freeze if something wasn't done. Wanda is a very empathetic dragon. Even though she didn't trust humans she didn't want to see a helpless creacher d.ie in such a way. She took Hypergoof into her nest to warm up. Hypergoof was stuck there for several days not knowing which way was home until Cuteseepie tracked her down by scent and took her back to the village. During Hypergoof's time in the nest Wanda decided she liked this little human. Hypergoof was terrified of most of Wanda's children and since Wanda didn't understand Norse yet Hypergoof communicated her unease by sticking as close to the fireworm queen as she would allow. Purposely mimicking the bodylanguig of a scared puppy to get her point across. Wanda was sympathetic of Hypergoof's fear and allowed the little human to stay near. Keeping the meaner members of her family at bay until Cuteseepie could find the lost viking. Wanda was a bit suprized to find that a dragon was the one looking for the girl. She has a healthy dose of curiosity in her and often visits Berk for "research purposes" as she calls it. Wanda is curious about humans and wants to learn about them. Hypergoof is grateful to Wanda for her kindness and will come when she calls. Something Wanda finds amusing but also gives her an easy target to study. Personalitywise Wanda is the type of person one might have a fancy tea party with. She is every bit a queen but is also an intellectual with a kind heart. She hangs around Berk to study the uneeq human and dragon interactions there. Seeking how to possibly spread that type of friendship for the good of dragon kind.

 

 

 

 

 

Burpetta

(Wonders if she'd get in trouble for blasting me into the water behind the camera)

          A pink thunderdrum who someone in the dragon rehab center found as a baby then dumped on Hypergoof since no one wanted to deal with the hatchling. Their relationship started out terribly due to Hypergoof's sound sensitivity. In the beginning Hypergoof could barely stand Burpetta but eventually the dragon realized that her loudness has hurting the human and learned to be more gentle with Hypergoof's delicate ears. Sometimes Burpetta can be careless but she never means any harm and will correct her behavior when she eventually realizes she did wrong. She is kind by nature but loves a bit of mischief now and then. She also has a bit of the stubbornness common in her breed. Once she sets her mind to something it is difficult to convince her otherwise.

 

 

 

 

Chomp

(Sleeping like the baby he is)

            A screaming death. He is the baby of the group despite being the biggest member of it. When Alven found out that one of the eggs he'd planted under Berk had hatched a screaming death he decided he wanted such a beast for himself. He knew he couldn't capture the adult so he decided to get his hands on a hatchling. He captured a bunch of the successful breeding pair's family members in the hopes that more of them would carry the incredibly rare screaming death gene. The captive dragons were force bread and after many many attempts Alven got what he wanted. He didn't get to keep it though as a couple Hooligans who had snuck into Alven's hideout looking for helpful info about future plans found the baby screaming death instead. They took it back to Berk to figure out what to do with it. Several people wanted to kill the little guy before he could grow into an island eater but Hypergoof over heard and was horrified. She knew what it felt like to be disliked for what she was rather than who she was. Some people didn't trust her because she was a Berserker. She knew it wasn't fair to judge someone that way. She stole Chomp and (With Wiggles and Termite's permission) hid him down Wiggles's tunnels. Wiggles didn't mind and enjoyed having a roommate to play with. Chomp stayed there unknown until his loudness and the sheer amount of food being brought down there gave him away. By then though he was old enough that he had enough personality to proved him a gentle giant rather than a monster and he was allowed to stay. He is not at all a full grown screaming death and has the personality of a giant toddler. He is surprisingly gentle especially considering his breed. He is so mild tempered that he will stare blankly at fire trolls wondering what they are doing. He will only engage if he thinks it's a game. Despite his gentleness his size and strength can be a problem. He will occasionally knock someone over with his tail by accident then stare at them in confusion not smart enough to understand why the person fell but knowing it was still somehow his fault. When other screaming deaths were allowed into the school Chomp was thrilled to have playmates his size. Chomp is very much still a baby mindwise. He is very food oreeinted and can be prompted to do nearly anything for a snack. It's a very good thing he doesn't consider humans food. It's hard to imagine that he could ever be related to the screaming death who once tried to eat Berk but he is. The danjoris one happens to be his somewhat distant uncle. Fun fact: Hypergoof often refers to Chomp's uncle as Mr. Island munch and insists that she will continue to do so until his actual name is found out or created.

 

 

 

 

 

Punaluu

(LOVES sand)

(I really shouldn't be suprized)

            A female sand wraith. Punaluu comes from a subspeasys of sand wraith on a volcanic island with black sand. (Like the beach Punaluu is named after.) As such they adapted to the environment by becoming black. A side affect of this is that now the subspeacys looks even more like a nightfurry than the normal ones. Some money hungry showmen found out about them and decided to make a quick buck. They stoll an egg from this island and paraded the black hatchling around claiming it to be a nightfurry. This charade ended when they made the mistake of bringing their show to Berk. Seeing that the dragon was being treated badly the Hooligans took the baby from the showmen and took it to the dragon rehabilitation center for treatment for whip wounds and malnutrition. Punaluu is much healthier now and is a happy energetic young sand wraith. One problem she has is that her dark coloring is only designed for a certain type of area and she can not camouflage most of the time because of it. Not being able to hide occasionally gives her episodes of anxiety but a quick trip to a beach ushuly fixes it. She is very shy around strangers but around those she knows she is a complete goof. She can also be a bit naughty. Sometimes she feels out of place like she doesn't belong and so interacts well with Hypergoof who doesn't fit in all that well ether.

I could tell by the smirk Wolf gave me that she was awkward. That made me even more awkward, so I thought of something that could either break the awkwardness or make it worse.

"So,"I said, shifting slightly from foot to foot, "my dad's having a cookout on Friday and he told me to invite any friends of mine."

My smile faded slightly when I realized that this was probably a horrible idea.

"So, um..." I stared at the floor and blurted out, "Would you like to come?"

"So, uh,my dad is having a cook out and told me to bring a friend of mine." 

Wolf could tell that Marg instantly regretted saying that. But now,she was socially bound to finish the request. Stupid society. "Would you like to come?" Marg finished. Wolf paused to think. She hardly knew Marg, if she said no, she could get out of the conversation. But, she would rub off as impolite and might halt future friendships.

 

"Maybe?" Wolf replied. It sucked that she had to think this deeply into something as boring as a normal, conversation. Nothing interesting ever happened. Wolf shifted neasily.

((Yas! I love Percy Jackson! I just read it last year and I'm waiting to see the movies which I've heard are terrible. :3 We could totally add that.))

 

"Maybe?" Wolf replied and I could tell that she probably didn't want to.

"It's okay if you don't make it," I added quickly, not wanting to pressure her. "If you're busy, I understand."

((sweet! Then, I'm gojg to have a monster attack the street because it smells demigod blood. Because... Monsters are like that.))

 

"If you're​busy, I'll understand." Marg reassured her. Wolf just smiled, that's when something happened. Fortunately, a moose attacked the store which saved Wolf the awarkedness of replying, unfortunately, a moose attacked the store. Wolf whipped around instinctivly as a loud bang resounded through the store, followed by the clatter of broken glass and a horrifying below. People began screaming, a few costomers ran by screaming;

"MOOOOOOSE!"

"Moose?" Wolf asked, she was utterly confused. Sure enough, from the dusty store, the looming figure of a hulking huge moose appear. It snorted at Wolf and Marg pawing it's cloven hooves into the tile floor.

 

Wolf stared at the moose, only it wasn't a moose. Wolf could of sworn it had a snake for a tail. But then, it was a moose again. She was getting bad vibes from this creature.

"Uhm... We should probably run." Wolf whispered. She grabbed Mary's hand and dashed off, the moose thing let out a Bellow and chased after them.

((Alright! I'm ready for this!))

 

"Moose?" Wolf asked and we both stared at the thing that was supposed to be a moose, only it had a tail for a second.

"Uhm... We should probably run," Wolf whispered as she grabbed my hand and we ran.

Then the thing roared and started chasing after us.

"Oh, my goodness gosh!" I said, looking behind us at the moose thing that was really looking less and less like a moose. "What the googly moogly is that thing?"

My hand instantly went to my pocket where I kept my pocket-knife. If it tried anything, that was a time for self defense.

I looked around at all the other people in the store and realized something.

"I think it's chasing us," I told Wolf with wide eyes.

"Oh my goodness gosh!" Marg cried. Even in this state if panic stricken, primal fear, Wolf laughed at the audtrocity of their situation. And, what Marg said was hilarious. But, her laugher was gulped down by a shout as the creature barreled into a shelf, causing a true domino effect, isle after isle collasped in on each other. "I think it's chasing us!" Marg screamed. Wolf looked over her shoulder.

"You don't say?" They were running out of grocery store. Suddenly, the glowing red lights of an 'emergency exit' sign caught her eye. Wolf never thought she would be so glad to see that! A rampaging moose seemed like an emergency to them, and they needed an exit. Wolf slammed her shoulder into the door, triggering the alarm. She and Marg busted outside. Wolf looked both ways. "The forest!" She screamed at Marg, thinking that the thick branches would offer some shelter. Wolf began sprinting cross the road, hopped the fence to the forest. The moose, barrled straight into it, crashing through the barbwire.

((What kind of monster is it?  And I hope it's okay if I bring in a satyr, they're my favorites. :3))

 

When Wolf and I hopped over the fence to the forest I thought it was a great idea. Until the moose crushed the fence and kept coming after us.

I stole a glance behind us again and laughed nervously.

"It's still coming!" I yelped. "We need a better plan than running! Do you think it can climb trees?"

Suddenly a boy in a green beanie was running next to us.

"Not good!" he shouted. "I was really hoping to get a break, but noooo! It just had to smell you guys!"

"What?" was the only thing that could come out of my mouth.

"There's a river about 20 feet to the left!" the boy shouted. "Get there and we'll see a large oak tree with a cave under it! That's the safest place close by where we can call for help!"

I stared at Wolf with a should we trust this dude? look.

I was reading through this, and I like the Percy Jackson books as well. I was wondering if I could join the RP? If both of you wouldn't mind, of course.

Thanks for reading,

((Actually, I was just about to do the same thing! Haha!))

 

Wolf shreiked and doved sideways, just as a boy in a green beanie leapt out of the brush. Wolf had to do a double take. Did he have goat legs?

"Not good!" he shouted. "I was really hoping to get a break, but noooo! It just had to smell you guys!"

"What?" Marg asked. Wolf's mouth was dry, he had goat legs! 

"There's a river about 20 feet to the left!" the boy shouted. "Get there and we'll see a large oak tree with a cave under it! That's the safest place close by where we can call for help!"

 

 

Marg looked uncertain, should they just a guy with goat legs? Wolf risked glance behind her and screamed at what she saw. The moose was no longer a moose. It was a monster! A two headed creatures, one lionb head, one goat head, with leathery wings and a snake for a tail. The guy with goat legs seemed a better option. 

"Let's go!" Wolf barked, yanking Marg to the left. She ran for a short while before stopping at at a river. Wolf looked both ways at a lost for what to do. In the background, she heard the monster roaring and the man-goat-thing whooping a warcry about 'chimeras?' Wolf groaned, she was the one who wished something intresting would happen!

 

 

((Hm. I say sure, but the call is Marg's really.))

We stopped in front of the river and Wolf groaned as we looked around.

"There's the oak tree!" I said and pulled Wolf under some large roots sticking out from the ground that formed a cage over a hole.

Inside was the nicest hollow I had ever seen. It had stone walls like a cave that had been drawn on, but it's ceiling was dirt and tree roots.

I looked at Wolf and smiled nervously. "I just noticed something. Did you see goat legs on that guy?"

She was about to answer, but the guy slid in behind us.

"Up the ladder! Up the ladder!" he shouted.

"What ladder?" I looked around the room.

He gave me a how-stupid-can-you-get face and pointed to the far wall. Sure enough, there was a ladder.

"I swear that wasn't there before," I said.

"Doesn't matter, I'll save scolding for later!" he shouted. "Just get up!"

What a crab, I thought.

Wolf and I climbed up the ladder and I could hear the monster trying to get into the tree as we climbed.

When we got to the top, we were standing on a giant branch higher than any of the other trees in the forest.

"Hold on!" goat-boy said, pulling a gold coin out of his pocket. "I'm going to call a taxi!"

Me and Wolf stared at him blankly.

The boy with goat legs hurried them up a disappearing ladder. Wolf could only fathom how he managed to climb that thing.

"I'm gong to call a taxi!" He declared reaching into his pocket and pulling out a golden coin.

"Who uses euros anymore?" Wolf asked staring at the coin. She recgoninized it from her history class... History. Suddenly a thought sent Wolf bowling over with laughter. She placed her hand on a tree branch to steady herself.

 

The peril they were in, and the weirdness of their situation had finally cracked her. She got it! A man with goat legs?! Satrys don't even exist! "This is not happening!" Wolf choked. "Only I could dream up Greek Mythology into reality." She snorted. Maybe she could wake herself up...

Wolf doubled over with laughter at the sight of the gold coin and had to hold on to the tree for help.

"Please don't fall," I muttered.

"Only I could dream up Greek Mythology into reality," she said.

I poked her slightly. "You feel real to me."

The goat face palmed.

"Right," he muttered. "They told me I was going to have to explain this."

"Please explain that it is a dream," I said, hoping beyond hope that that monster was just a dream.

"It's not," he said. "The Greek gods are real and you're their children. The monster smelled your demigod blood and came after you because monsters are like that. That's why I'm calling a taxi made for demigods to get you safely to camp for my first mission. Got it?"

I stared at him blankly. Greek Mythology was just weird stuff people believed in the early ages of time when people killed each other for fun.

"What?" I blurted out.

"DO I HAVE TO REPEAT MYSELF?" he yelled. "Just-- just hold tight and trust me until we get into the taxi. "I'll explain when we get in, 'kay?"

I stared at the candle, the tip unlit. My eyes strained from focus, and I slowly raised my right hand. My hand stiffened, as I struggled to control the power inside. I released the pressure for a split second, and tentacles of flame reached out at the wax. They slowly crept closer, the flame reaching around the string. It flowed gracefully around it, and then I closed my fist. My fingernails dug into my skin, and I felt the shock of force. The circle of flame snapped close, and forcefully set the candle alight. I sat there for a moment, staring at my work. The flame danced in the dark room, a string of smoke flowing from its tip.

The door opens, "Harold, report to the Big House." I hear Jacob say, in his gravel voice.

"Give me a second." I complain, whispering as to not disturb my candle.

"We don't have a second, report immediatelly." Jacob commands.

"Can't Chiron ever wait?" I snort as I stand. I quickly put out the flame and head out the door.

I walked out of the dark room, and walk around my cabin, I head straight to the Big House. Chiron waited inside. I step through the doorway, and stand before him, "Why did you call me here?" I ask.

"There have been two demigods located near, but there's a problem. The satyr that found them has reported that there may be some trouble extracting these two." Chiron said.

"What?"

"There are at least fifty monsters that have gathered near them. Ten chimeras, five minotaurs, six...."

"I get it. They're in trouble." I cut him off.

"Precisely. That's why you need to help them get here."

"Why me?"

"Just do it." Chiron ignores my question.

And, now I am sent on a quest that I don't even know why I'm doing it. I guess they must not need much help, if they chose me for this mission. I walk out of the house, and start the long journey out of the camp. Then an idea sparked. I'm the son of the goddess of magic! Can't I just teleport there?

I take out a map, and find a location near their general location, after going back to Chiron and asking him where they were. With a long incantation, I dissapear from Camp Halfblood.

((actually, they're just being chased by a chimera.

 

Ben! You use Hecate as your godly parent? I LOVE Hecate! :D. ))

 

The satyr rambled on about how Greek gods were real and that they were their children. Wolf blinked.

"So... We're little Godlings. Welp.. at least I can check 'get stuck in a parrell universe's off my bucket list." Wolf snapped scarcasticly. Suddenly the tree groaned and jerked, Wokf grappled for a hold. The monster moose below them was trying to climb the tree. Then... It seemed to realize that it had wings! Slowly the batwings unfurled as it looked at them in a hungry light.

 

"Your taxi better hurry up because I am not ready to becme goat chow!" Wolf hollered. Suddenlyy, the trees blurred, and there was a bright flash of light. A rusty old car came flying past them... Flying? It appeared to be driven by 3 old women. They were tossing around a circular object...

((Welcome to the RP, Ben!

 

And yas, they're the fates. >:3))

 

My jaw dropped when the taxi flew up to the tree branch.

Goat-dude opened one of the doors and motioned for us to get inside franticly.

I just stared at the three eyeless women in the front seats that were slapping each other and shouting about wanting to see.

"What?" I said for the hundredth time that day.

"Can you do anything without saying that?" the satyr asked. "Why don't you two just get in the car and make all of our lives easier?"

"I don't even know your name!" I protested.

"My name is Griffin," he said like it was obvious. "Now, please, get into the ca--"

I yelped when another boy appeared on the branch next to us and stumbled by the edge.

"Harold?" Griffin shouted.

"Ah, Griffin." I said, "You weren't supposed to notice me, it was going to be a dramatic entrance."

"But...." Griffin argued. I waved my hand to cut him off.

"So are these the new ones?" I asked and Griffin nodded his head, "A lot of fuss over these ones then."

I unlatched my staff from my back, and looked out below us, "I see them now. The best way to escape would be by teleporting but sadly you can only teleport out of Camp Halfblood, not into it."

"What do we do then?" Griffin asked, trying to give as much respect as a satyr could give. Probably because I was there only hope of escaping. I guess it could also be that I could turn him into a frog with a wave of my hand.

I take out my map, "Well, there is a taxi right there. That might work." I rolled my eyes.

"Oh, yeah." Griffin realized, embarrassed.

"Climb into the cab," I ordered the young demigods. It was ironic that I thought of them as young, because I was about their age.

Wolf peered into the cab.

"Let me have the eye!"

"No you had the eye LAST time!"

"I'm the one driving, I should get the eye!" The old ladies were arguing, slapping around a sphereical object. Wolf peered into the taxi just as one of them turned to "look" at her. Her eyes were just two gaping holes burrowing struaght into her ahead, revealing an abyss of emptiness. Wolf yelped and stumbled backwards.

"Their rather empty headed don't you think?" She panted, joking to cover up the fear that wormed it's way in her stomach.

 

 

Wolf heard Marg Yelp, she turned around to see a boy standing there. How did HE get there? At this point Wolf didn't care. The monster flew up to the tree and perched on a branch. After a hurried conversation with the Satyr Griffin (a satry named Griffin, even though grffins originated in Asia before Greece) the newcomer asked them to get into the car. 

"So either we run into snapping jaws if death over there, or get kidnapped by a goat..." She paused ,"Yeah I'm choosing the latter half." She said quicly as the Chimera roared and sprinted teoards them. Wolf shoved herself into the car.

 

Just as the last person soid isnide, the monster slammed into the car, it's giant maw knawing at the roof. "Drive you fool!" One lady shouted. "Not without the eye!" The car jerked with. Hideous ripping noise and soon the taxi was off, soaring through the air. The ride wasnt pleasure able. The old ladies were tossing around the sphere and the car felt more like a roller coaster as the accelerated at an inhuman pace. All of the speed and jerkiness cuases Wolf to almost loose her stomach. Even though it was a few short seconds, it felt like an eternity until the car finally skidded to a stop. "We're here!" One if the three ladies announced. The car doors swung open.  "get out before we miss our lunch break." The second one said. "Now give me the tooth." The first one growled elbowing the third. "You had it first last time..." And so the argument continued.

Griffin slung the door of the taxi open and threw up as soon as he got out. I on the other hand was frozen in my seat with fear.

'GIVE ME THE TOOTH ALREADY!" one of the women shouted and snapped me back to my senses.

"Never!"

They started slapping each other again and I hopped out of the car with the other. We were standing at the bottom of a hill with a large pine tree.

"I almost want to do that again!" I laughed. "It was like a roller coaster, only... more dangerous?"

Griffin clutched his stomach and shook his head. "Never."

Wolf flopped out of the cab and slid onto the floor giggling.

"Let's do that again." She said, rather fazed.

"Never." Griffin gulped. Wolf recollected herself and picked herself up from the grass. She looked around. They were in a wood next to a large oak, behind that oak, Two marble pilalrs censored form the ground. They were entangled in ivy and other plants. Perched uptop the pillars stood a huge Stone-carved sign written in a foreign language. But, as Wolf looked at the sign, those letters shifted and rearranged themself.

 

"Camp Half-Blood." Wolf read aloud. "What's that?" She asked turning to the mysterious boy.

"Um, now that we're away from the monster," I said, "can I go back home? My dad will probably start worrying if I'm not back soon..."

"That's not safe now," Griffin said. "You're a half-blood and more monsters will find you. Let's just get into camp and--"

A large bull-man came out of nowhere and started running towards us.

"What did I tell you?" Griffin muttered. "More monsters. RUN TOWARD CAMP!"

"I'm going insane!" I shouted, giggling nervously as I grabbed Wolf and ran toward the sign that said "Camp Half-Blood".

"Ah, I suggest running. I'll hold him off." I shouted, "You too, Griffin."

I jumped out of the cab, and held my staff out in front of me. With the tip pointed at the monster, I shouted an incantation.

Lightning burst through the wood, and hit the monster in its face. The creature roared, and charged. I jumped to my left, as the minotaur charged off the cliff behind me. I twisted around, and shot the creature with a ball of flame as it fell off.

I was walking to the entrance, when I heard a large growl behind me. Gigantic bull horns poked over the edge of the cliff, and I ran.

"Everyone, into the camp! Quickly!" I shouted.

Marg asked about going home. Though that did sound ncd, Wolf never wanted to forget that this happened! It was way too cool! "It's not safe. You're a Half-blood the monsters will just keep coming." Griffin stated.

"Does this mean we get magical powers?" Wolf asked giddily, she was the one who wanted a more interesting life. Suddenly a roar shook through the trees, rattling the very ground which they stood upon. From the forest merged a bull-nosed thing. "A Minotaur?! Not THE Minotaur surely!" Wolf exclaimed, her excitement was short lived as it began charging them.

"I suggest you run." The mysterious boy said smoothly. "No kidding?" Wolf replied scarcasticly. She was jerked away as Marg grabbed a hold onto her ran.

 

It wasn't too long before they passed under the archway. Wolf wasn't sure whether or not they were safe. Just a simple arch couldn't with stand the blows of a Minotaur! Could it? Wolf looked forward and saw a valley lined with cabins. There was a huge Central spilar where small figures were trying to climb to the top. There were rope tracks, race courses, archery and sword fighting. Even a giant glittering lake at the edge of the camp. "Woah." Wolf breathed.

 

 

 "Yes, I quite like it myself." An older man in a wheel car rolled up to them. He bore a beard and kind,dark eyes. "Thank you Griffin for keeping these demigods safe." He nodded to the Satyr. Wolf relaxed a bit, no one seemed remotely worried that the monster outside them could get it. "If your done over there, it would be greatly appreciated if you came inside the camp." The older man called to the mysterious boy who was one-on-oneing it with the monster.

((Thank you for letting me join!! ^^))

I sat on top of my cabins roof was looking up into the sky, thinking. I suddenly felt a tug in the pit of my stomach. I jerked upwards swaying on top of the roof. They were either panicked, scared, angry.
I turned trying around to determine where the feeling had come from when a roaring sound knocked me out of my mind and on to the ground.
"Ow.." I mumbled into the grass.
Sure enough, as I looked up I saw three people running down the hill, and a boy with a staff that was fighting a Minotaur off.
I hurried to the three people which I could now make out as two girls and a satyr runnng towards Chiron who was sitting in his wheelchair. When I got there I heard Chiron say: "If your done over there it would be greatly appreciated if you came inside the camp."
"Hey Chiron, hey Griffin." I recognized him as the little rude satyr I had talked to a couple times.
I looked at Griffin. "Huh I never thought you would be able to bring anything back alive. How close were they to dieing?"
He glared at me. "For your information they weren't anywhere near dieing."
"I just saw you run down a hill with two newlings away from a Minotaur and you really expect me to believe that?"
He just mumbled something so I asked : "Who are you two anyway?" I looked at the girls.

Another girl jogged up the hill twords them. Wolf panted as she looked over her shoulder.

"Can we do that again?" She asked. She turned to face the approching camper.

"I can't believe you actually brought something back alive." She said to Griffin. ((Sounds like something an Athena child would say)) "How close were they to dying?" Griffin snorted indigiantly.

"No where near dying." Wolf smirk, she decided that she liked this girl. The older gentleman in the wheelchair sighed.

"My name is Chiron and welcome to camp half blood. You are here because you've come of age. You are a demigod, half human, half god." Ahe explained.  Wolf scratched her head. "How does that even work?" 

 

Chiron chuckled. "Which one of your parents are absent?" He inquired. Wolf blinked, how did he know? "My mom." She replied gingerly. Chiron nodded. "And you?" he asked looking at Marg.

When the guy in the wheel chair asked me which of my parents were missing, I blushed and got frustrated. I hated talking about that in front of people.

"My mom, too," I murmured, looking at my feet.

"Wouldn't it be amazing if you guys were sisters?" Griffin said sarcastically and walked off.

Chiron sighed. "I'm sorry if he was rude. He tends to come off as a bit of a..."

"Crab?" I asked in a cheery voice.

"Yes," he said. "But, once you get to know him better, you'll find he not all bad. He did save you after all."

"Uh-huh," I said. "So, what is this Greek god thing going on? This really isn't a big joke, is it?"

"No, I'm afraid not," he replied then looked at the other girl. "Charly, would you be so kind as to show our new arrivals around camp?"

"Charly would you be so kind as to show our new arrivals around camp." Chiron looked at me.
"Well... Um..." I tried to worm my way out of helping. "I still have to do some stuff back....." I trailed off as Chirons look turned into a glare and I realized that it was not a request but an order.
I sighed "Fine, follow me..." I waved at them to follow and started heading towards the cabins.
I mumbled the entire time about things that weren't important. I showed then the arena the climbing wall and the blacksmith I probably missed one or two crucial things but I just hoped they would survive most people did.
I led them to the Hermes cabin.
"This is where you'll probably be staying one or two nights until your parents say you belong to them bla bla bla. Anymore questions?"

I ran up to Chiron, but saw that he had already told Charly to go and give them a tour.

"Wow, wouldn't even wait for me? You know, seeing as I saved them and all, I thought I would be able to give them a tour." I complained.

Chiron pretended not to hear me. He didn't like me very much. There was a story behind that....

I rolled my eyes and shook my head, resisting the urge to turn him into ashes. Or maybe freezing him would be more effective, seeing as he was immortal and all that. I ran to catch up to Charly and the others, and started walking beside them.

"OK, nice how you're already on a tour and he didn't even wait for me. Right? Shows you the true Chiron doesn't it? ," I chuckled, and continued, "Anyways, I forgot to ask your names back then. You know,  because we were being chased by an army of monsters and all that. So, you are?" I asked them.

Chiron asked a girl name Charly to give them a tour. It was the girl that Wolf decidedly liked. Wolf was stunned by the camp, the impressive pillars, spiraling colluems, the walls, climbing ropes, fighting arenas, it was probably the best camp she had ever been. Edventually that boy caught up with them, and asked their names.

"Oh! I'm Wolf!" She smiled at him as if daring him to tell here it was a weird name. It was more or less a nickname it which she adopted. She didn't dare utter her real name. It died on the tongue and rolled into the air like dry skin.

 

 "So, if I'm related to a goddess, who is it?" She continued excitedly. Athena? She didn't think she was wise enough. Iris? Demeter? Aphrodite? Nah, she wasn't pretty enough. Wolf didn't want some lame minor goddess though. She always epwas bored if the world she lived in. The same old thing every day. She wanted to be powerful, awesome, like those characters in fantasy books!

I laughed. "How should I know? Oh, and don't be sad if it's a minor goddess. My own mother is a minor goddess and she definitely doesn't go unnoticed. You know when she's been there."
I patted the pouch with the seeds of discontent. They were a gift from her to me.
"With just the lift of an eyebrow she can make you rage like there's no tomorrow. I try not to be like her though, but it's hard sometimes."
I looked down trying to hide the tears in my eyes from the memories.
"Anyway I'm done bragging about my mother. I'm going to the arena. Now is the time I can concentrate best. Good night."
I headed for the arena.

"Thanks for showing us around!" I exclaimed, waving at Charly as she walked away then turned to the boy. "Sorry I didn't answer you sooner, I got distracted; but people call me Marg."

I looked at cabin 11 and heard a lot of noise.

"Do we just walk in there?" I asked. "Charly said they like to steal stuff..."

"Do we just walk in there? Charly said they steal stuff."

Wolf shrugged.

I grabbed my sword from my cabin and went to the arena. My sword was a regular medical sword made out of regular celestial bronze. Just the hilt was a bit different: a golden apple was on it with a bite out of it and out of that bite three black snakes swiveled out I almost felt like I could hear them whisper insults at each other. The same symbol was on the door way of my cabin. I placed my hand over the symbol and the whispering stopped as I hurried to the arena.
When I finally got there it was all empty. At night was always the best time for training.
For a moment I just stared at the dummy in front of me then I remembered what I came for and after I was done the only thing the was left were pieces of cloth and straw littering the floor.
Panting I went to go get a broom to clean it up. When I picked up my sword I felt a burning pain on the palm of my hand.
Yelping I dropped it to the floor.
