The streets of 1950 New York seethes with discontent, from the vague tension even unwitting citizens could sense in the air, to the near instinctual agitation of cut-throats and thieves who unconsciously grow to fear the dark, to the pervading unspoken dread hanging like a guillotine blade over every conversation whispered between those in the know.

Strange occurrences popped up throughout the city like wildfire, disregarding past agreements, directly violating the Treaty. More worrying still are the increased disappearance of those with the Iron Fever, baffling the police with their peculiarity and raising numerous alarms across every Scire organization of any importance.

There are rumors of the return of the Fae Court for the first time in 50 years. Those who laughed off such rumors did so uneasily, hesitant to disregard troubling signs as mere fantasy.

The rise of the zealot Adam Prisc splintered the Changeling community into opposing factions while the Ironguard watches idly, confident in their seemingly immovable position of power.

All could feel the wind changing direction, carrying with it the stench of something foul and dangerous. Those who stand in the way of the tide risk everything, heart, mind and soul.

Lead and Glamour is a noir-themed urban fantasy set in 1950 New York.

The Industrial Revolution had driven the wild and exotic Fae from this world with iron, steel and fire. Some of the Fae tried to find ways to return, leading to the creation of the Changelings some time in the 1840s, hybrid Fae and human creatures that while still not completely immune to iron were able to survive it.

But the Changelings couldn't be controlled for long, declaring independence during the 1870s and breaking free from their makers. Now they live among human in disguise, using their strange magic to hide themselves from the sight of regular people.

At the same time, the phenomenon known as the Iron Fever spread without apparent cause or cure, killing many while granting those who survived an aura of Iron that was toxic to Fae and Changelings alike. The core of those in New York founded the Ironguard to police the magical underworld, though many chose to keep to themselves and often away from the fae world entirely.

After a devastating war in the late 1890s that nearly spilled over into the normal world, the Ironguard and the elders within New York's Changeling community signed a Treaty, formalizing regulations and rules to contain the hidden world and to keep the peace.

But it has been 50 years since the war. A new generation has grown into power, arrogant Ironguards taking their privilege for granted and young hot-blooded Changelings straining against the chains of rules and oppression that hold them down.

The era of caution and peace have passed. The dark water of iron and magic boiled and bubbled, steaming rebellion like a bitter scent on the wind.

I'm fine with both, but I have hard time with others using my character(s) without my prior consent. If the other player is unsure, I will have more of an aggressive style.

I'm fine doing both. However, while I am ok with being the passive player, it would be nice if the aggressive player took suggestions from me every once in a while.

What's the par requirement if it's a two plus every post then it's not for me, because my writting varies on mood and creativity at the time.

I don't judge on length but quality. Some people manage to pack more into a single paragraph than others do a 1k words running-on post. If you're confident in your ability to deliver impactful and effective short posts that both advance the narrative and provide enough room for reply I couldn't be happier. But honestly, based on your usual writing style I really don't think this one suits you.

Fine doing both! Sometimes I end up aggressive, if no one else is contributing to plot, or if there's one person I feel like is taking over, but if everyone's contributing equally to the pool of ideas, I just let them go ahead and do it.
