Dream Weavers (rated R for mature)

Discussion in 'ROLEPLAY GRAVEYARD' started by Hydronine, Aug 27, 2009.

  1. Yesterday, at five in the morning in Seattle, Washington, a horrid monster slew an entire neighborhood.

    But, by nine in the morning, the monster had stopped and disappeared.
    **********************

    In Houston, Texas, a tank rolled across streets, crushing everything in its path.

    At seven in the morning, it faded away...

    ******************

    In Russia, a teddy bear killed a man after an attempt of raping a woman, then wandered the streets, causing no apparent harm.

    At noon, the cuddly toy waved to children as it disappeared.

    **************

    In Africa, a ballerina danced in a poor community, no harm was caused.

    It disappeared early in the morning.

    **************

    No one's quite sure of what's going on, but shortly before this predicament, a new drug was being peddled on the streets and in clubs, called "Swiit Driemz".

    This new drug intentionally puts the victim into a coma-like state for a good twelve or fifteen hours, for the minimum amount of time. In this time, the person is entranced with the most inner-most thoughts and ideas from their very core.

    People have been rushed to the hospital from heart attacks, strokes, seizures, sudden death for no reason, Blood clots, hemorrhages, and more.

    All had trace amounts of this new drug in their system.

    ****************

    A group has already reacted to the events, claiming to be able to stop these phantom-like beasts.

    They call themselves Dream Weavers.

    Not much is known of this group, only that they made a book recently, as a group, called "The Dream Weavers' Bible: How to connect"
    ****************************

    The US Military is already scrambling to try and find out what's going on.
    ***************************

    Dream Weavers: A group of three women and two men. Not much is known about them, save for the fact that their book is praised as a great read. Though, no one really tries what they say. They claim that the new drug, Swiit Driemz, was actually the fault of the military. Apparently it was an attempt to protect our soldiers while their in a battle when things go south with bio-warfare. They knew the harmful side effects, but kept shoving it down their throats. When they couldn't do that, they covertly sold it off. The Dream Weavers have tried to stop the drug activity, by mugging and fighting drug dealers and stealing the crates filled with the purple tablets.

    Drug gangs: They are the guys that profit off their poison. A 10mg tablet costs more than fifty bucks, on a good day. They've already sold and made a huge profit from this new drug.

    Police/Government: They condemn both the drug dealers and the Dream Weavers, saying that neither are helping the situation.
    **********************

    Careful where you party tonight, and watch your drinks, those pills can be dissolved in carbonated drinks, put in your food, and much more....

    Character Sheets coming soon.
     
  2. Man, I still remember getting goosebumps during the first two episodes of SU when they originally aired. I'm usually afraid to get my hopes with new shows, but Gem Glow and Laser Light Canon made it so clear what a special series this was going to be.

    I was actually one of the people who wanted to be a little skeptical about Garnet, but that's because at the time I thought her being a fusion would take away from her character, and BOY have I never been more wrong.

    Also yeah the Pearl x Dewey ship is really silly.

  4. More on the Dreamers:
    These odd happenings are controlled by one person. These dreams become physical things, complete with their own thoughts and personalities. They are influenced by the dreamer's inner-most thoughts, favorite things, or fears. These creatures can not be stopped. You have to wake up the dreamer. Although some of them are drugged or medicated. No one has ever tried to kill one of these dreamers before, fearing the possible consequences.

    New reports are coming out that some of these dreamers are experienced and powerful enough to be able to conjure up these phantasms when they're semi-conscious, this gives them further control over their respective dream characters....
     
  5. Name on Iwaku: Razilin

    Name of Character: Dr. John Corpuz

    Age: 30

    Appearance: 5'7", 140 lbs., medium build, short black hair.

    Equipment: Cell phone/PDA combination with Internet, Bluetooth, and Windows capabilities; hospital pager; pocket flashlight; wallet; car/house keys.

    Weapons: Pocket knife.

    Position sleeping: On back, little to no movement while asleep.

    Personality: Kind, compassionate, and extroverted; unafraid to try new things, but tempers his curiosity and energy with maturity and a keen, analytical eye.

    History: A native of the Phillippines who managed to land a residency in the United States, Dr. Johnathan "Jack" Corpuz is the latest in a long line of doctors in his family. Despite a wild, rough, and destitute youth in the islands, he worked his way into a highly respected profession and excelled. While friendly, compassionate, and beloved by his patients. Dr. Corpuz has had a poor time with romance; the list of ex-girlfriends and lovers can fill a small pharmacologic formulary.

    Dislikes/fears: Arrogance, loneliness.

    Anything Else: Dr. Corpuz has been working up a number of patients in recent months related to Swiit Driems and is growing increasingly concerned about how many are falling victim to it.

  7. Name on Iwaku: Warmaster Death

    Name of Character: Nick Parter (bwahahahahahaha, by changing a few letters....ah who am i kidding, this is a sugar&salt induced alter ego/make fun of myself character)

    Age:

    Appearance:[​IMG] yup, he wears the M10M gas mask all the time, though when he gets 'hyper' or paranoid, he is likely to don the following armor, though he rarely carries the AK, since you know, its illegal to have such a weapon
    [​IMG]

    Equipment: a Nokia 'slidey' prepaid mobile phone (doesnt work in america since it's with Telstra), His Wallet, including Drivers License (Issued in the australian state of Victoria), several Induction cards (including the Victorian Construction Induction Card), around $2.70AUD in coins, an Australian $5 note and around $45USD in various notes.
    he also carries his Commonwealth bank Debit Card in the wallet.
    8GB Ipod Nano (4th Gen), Skullcandy headphones
    3 Cuban Cigars, a pack of 5 Henri wintermans half corona cigars and a Bic Ciggerette lighter

    Obviously, Nick has an M10M Gas Mask, but he also has his other set of clothes in his rather large backpack, he also has the keys to his Rental Car, or rather, cheap rental shitbox (Automatic transmission)

    oh, and he has half a bottle of Cinzano Vermouth and two 30 tablet bottles of Ritalin 40mg LA
    EDIT: ooh and lets not forget the Asus F750 gaming LAPTOP


    Weapons: Nick carries an AK-74SU Airsoft gun, in a few peices in his backpack, along with enough BBs to last a nuclear war. he also has an actual steel bayonet that can be attached to the Airsoft gun, so basically he has a short, breakable knife on a stick that shoots BBs.....looks impressive but doesnt do that much.

    Position sleeping: on his stomach, though Nick has a tendancy to wake up in a completely different position, with his pillow on one side of the room, and his blanket on the other (nick tends to move around Alot in his sleep)

    Personality:at times, nick can be mature and thoughtful, at others, juvenile and reckless, though he is always impulsive, quick to anger (though whether he explodes or simply smolders relys on many factors, such as whether he's had his meds, whether he was previously pissed off, whether he really cares etc.)
    One Caveat: Nick has no confidence when it comes to talkign to chicks he finds attractive, at which point he has a tendancy to get drunk, 'working up the russian self confidence/dutch courage'

    History: Born in Australia, Nick went through primary school with relative normality, though eh always seemd like a hyperactive 'dreamer'
    in high school, troubles began at first with impulse control/behavior, then with anger control/Behavior, though 7 years later, by the end of year 12, nick had learned several measures to control such impulses and his anger, and whilst he has by no means completed this task, he is much better than he used to be.

    He came to America to seak treatment for a bad reaction to the Swiit Driems drug, as it nearly killed him and nearly drove him insane, though with extensive surgery on his heart and lungs, after which he was (and still is) not aloud to fly, so he's pretty much just driving around, looking for a way to do something about the Swiit Driems drug while he's in america.

    Likes: talking really fast, food, gaming (Tabletop, computer, console, Forum Roleplaying) anything Russian, most Spirits, Drawing, Painting.

    Dislikes/fears: the Dark, Loneliness, being a dickhead, Swiit Driems killing him/nearly killing him again.

    Anything else/Other: yes, i do intend to be both serious and take the piss out of myself (im jsut in one of that moods, though if this idea is truely Irksome i will change it to something more sensible)

  9. Name on Iwaku: Psychosis L. Neurotica

    Name of Character: Tess Faulkner

    Age: 18

    Appearance: Five feet tall exactly, ninety-seven pounds. Very skinny, very bony. Jaw-length straight brown hair, hazel eyes with a vaguely Asian shape, fair skin. Likes wearing loose t-shirts with funny messages, a thick hoodie, and baggy jeans held up by a plain brown leather belt. Always seen wearing the same ratty old tennis shoes.

    Equipment: Her laptop; a cell phone; two notebooks; a case containing two #2 pencils, a large eraser, a manual sharpener, two .5 lead mechanical pencils, spare lead, and two black pens; two notebooks; a novel called Taggerung; chapstick; a small tube of hand lotion; a camoflauge-patterned wallet; and all this contained within a black and orange messenger bag slung over her shoulder.

    Weapons: Her entire bag. It's quite heavy. Also has some nice edges due to the laptop. (You better not get blood on it though!) Writing utensils may double as stabbing implements, and she also carries a bottle of pepper spray in her hoodie pocket.

    Position sleeping: On her stomach usually. If it's too hot, she'll toss and turn a lot, trying to find a cooler place to lie on. If it's cold, she'll curl up on her side and stay there throughout the night.

    Personality: Usually introverted and rather flighty; she essentially lives in the fantasy worlds she creates in her notebooks. While normally very quiet when left to her own devices, if you get her talking, she babbles on for quite some time- especially when you get her talking about one of her stories. She also gets easily embarassed, however, and has a bad habit of lying to people to cover things up.

    History: Grew up in a strict religious family; while they don't make her wear dresses all the time and constantly praise God, they are quite steadfast about what she may not do- namely, anything that goes against typical Christianity. She was always addicted to reading, and had many altercations with her parents, not just over certain subject material, but also over her reading habits- to put it simply, if she had a book, she would read it, without stop, no matter what time of day or what she was supposed to be doing, until she was done. Frustrated, her parents went so far as to remove all her books, removing the lamp from her room, replacing her bed with a futon so that she couldn't hide books under it any longer (or so they thought)- even, at one point, taking one of her books, tearing it in half, and throwing one part at her and the other in the trash, when they were especially frustrated about her reluctance to put down her reading materials to help them with work. It was at this point that she began her secretive behavior- picking up habits of lying and hiding things in order to decieve her parents and be able to do what she wanted.

    When she started middle school, she also discovered the internet- a veritable treasure trove of stories posted for public reading, that she quickly became just as enthralled with as her books. Just like her book addiction, her parents did not approve of the extent to which she took her habits, and combated her by locking the door to the library in which their home computer was kept. This was also the point at which she began learning how to pick locks and began staying up most of the night, only going to bed when light was just beginning to peer through the window and she was at real risk to be caught.

    Then, in the eighth grade, Tess met an English teacher who introduced her to the concept of writing those same tales she was so addicted to. Within weeks, Tess had found yet another addiction, but this was one she could carry with her wherever she went, one that she didn't need to have materials with her to do. Over the next five years, Tess created story upon story, some silly, some dark, some epic, most outright bad. But she couldn't care less, because the fantasies were hers, for her alone to lose herself in.

    She has since devoted herself entirely to her story writing. She is currently just starting college, already diving headfirst into the classes she needs to complete an English major and get a degree in Creative Writing.

    Likes: Cats, dogs, and reptiles of all kinds- especially lizards. Flowers and wildlife in general. Nature scenes. Fantasy stories. Dragons. Brian Jacques' Redwall Series. Computers. Books. Video games. Watermelon. Sweet foods.

    Dislikes/fears: Spicy foods. 'Gross' things. Unsanitary things. Blood. Spiders. The dark. Drowning. Outer space. Suffocating. Aging. Death. Being alone in an unfamiliar or scary place.

    Anything else/Other: She enjoys walking around in circles in empty places, talking to herself as she plots out the next part of her latest story.

  13. More on the "dream beasts"

    Sarah G. McKinserling (One of the leaders of the Dream Weavers, in a thesis about these mysterious beasts):

    "These beasts are physical representations of the person's inner dreams, thoughts, fears, or comforts. They have their own personalities, wants, and needs. In the case of Swiit Driemz, these beasts are usually more violent. This drug is more likely to draw off of the sleeper's nightmares than their good dreams."

    In a call, one of the reporters asked for further clarification on the matter and the woman chuckled before going on about the matter:

    "Swiit Driemz is a drug that was created for soldiers, to hopefully help in the battlefield.... I doubt anyone in the civilian life needs that kind of a drug.... Besides, it's not helpful, at all. They stopped the trials after two years, after trying to make sure that NOTHING ELSE was causing the problems. The only thing that they found is that Swiit Driemz works more easily with women than with men, also, teens are more susceptible than people in their twenties or thirties [....] It's a dangerous drug, and it's very highly-priced [...] The people who have been effected by Swiit Driemz need to be in a hospital [...] We have, however created a program to help the victims of this drug, and we've already helped five people. I'm under contract to not release their names. They will do that on their own. These people are still recovering, and you must understand, this drug was NEVER meant to be used, EVER, but civilians. These poor people are not able to deal with this drug as a soldier would. They lack the discipline and control to even be able to soften the effects. Some lack the vaccinations to protect against some of the side effects that this drug brings on [...] I advise all to stay away from shady bars, and watch your drinks and food. Be vigilant."

    Shortly following that, the group visited the numerous victims in all different hospitals, trying to figure out the answers and how to help them, coming to differences with the doctors.

    There is now a difference in how the doctors treats the victims than how the group helps. The doctors focus on treating the physical ailments of the victims, while Dream Weavers insist that it's a smarter move to try and help the victim's mental state....
