Is anybody interested in an RP along the lines of Changeling: The Lost? Background: Most humans subscribe to the antiquated, self-centered idea that humans are the only intelligent lifeforms out there; or, at least, that the next closest thing is light years away. Contrary to wisdom passed down through the ages, the modern human holds a staunch disbelief in all things "fairy tale." Of course, those fairy tales are largely true. Ah, don't look at me that way. Let me narrow things down for you before you leave. Have you ever heard of Changelings? The idea is quite simple, really; the fae sometimes like to mix things up a bit; prevents gene stagnation, gives them servants, and all-around makes life more interesting. Oh, right, the idea itself; simply this: the fae swap places with humans sometimes! Sometimes it's as kids; they nab those tasty human little ones and replace them with their own offspring. Heck, you could know plenty of people who are actually fae, infiltrating human society that way! The other method is perhaps even more insidious. They take a human of any age, and they replace it with a double. A fae construct of a doppelganger; it knows everything that you do, and goes about living your life, and no one is the wiser. Some of your friends could have been replaced without your even knowing. No need to be paranoid, though! As far as we know, as long as you aren't the one getting replaced, it's no harm no foul to you! Sure, your wife may have been replaced, and now you'll have weird half-golem babies who will go on to have marvelous adventures that you'll put off as "imagination", but that will be no different from anyone else, right? No, the real trouble is for those who get stolen away. For, you see, the fae live in something of an alternate dimension, and it's a place not particularly hospitable for human types. One of two things happen to those humans who get spirited away; they either die, or they change. That's why we call the survivors Changelings, after all. They may go in human, but when they reach the other side, they've become something entirely different. Oh, you know the sorts; sprites, dwarves, werewolves, vampires, unicorns, dragons! Some get lucky and are more human than others, but just between you and me, that's small comfort. After all, you're either human, or you're not, and every Changeling falls on the not side. Oh, and there's the other problem, which is that it's really quite hard to get back to Earth as we know it once you've gone to the fae side. If it's not the discombobulation of having a new body that no one's going to teach you to use properly, it's the fact that they'll keep you quite busy, likely as not. And there are guards. And even coming back isn't that great. What are you going to do? No one thinks that you left! Can you imagine the therapy? And even the most conscientious Changeling can't keep up a human guise forever. And if that slips... well, there are government programs for that sort of thing. I'm telling you, the Changelings themselves are the ones who have it bad. Sucks to be you. TL;DR We're Changelings, people who were stolen away by the fae and replaced with doppelgangers. We've been changed into mythical creatures ourselves by the journey to the fae realm. The story starts with us escaping our masters and trying to get out of the realm and back to Earth.
