Love and Death Walking Hand in Hand I never said that I want this, This burden came to me, And it's made it's home inside If I told you what I was, Would you turn your back on me? And if I seem dangerous, Would you be scared? I get the feeling just because, Everything I touch isn't dark enough If this problem lies in me. ~A Time Long Ago~ Long ago there lived a small village by the river. This was an ordinary village, nothing special about it. But in this ordinary village, living in an ordinary house, was the most unordinary women. She had just moved into a small cottage a little ways from town. She mostly kept to herself, never really coming out except to go into to town to buy things. Soon the excitement she roused by arriving died down and she was mostly forgotten as people went back to their ordinary lives. But then strange things started happening, children going missing. The village, having never had anything like this happen, began to panic. Search parties were sent out to find these missing children but it was like they had never existed. As more and more children went missing, the rumor that a witch was stealing them away from their beds in the night circulated around the village, igniting even more fear and rage. Speculations went flying and the talk of burning spread like an illness. A poor women died that horrible night but when the villagers went to their bed, satisfied that the had rid the world of evil they awoke to the news that three children had gone missing. The fear grew deeper and then, someone pointed an accusing finger at the women that lived by herself in the outskirts. A band of men went and dragged the women, kicking and screaming into the center of town. She was tied to a stake in the center of town and the town gathered round her, yelling insults and throwing stones. Finally, the straw beneath her was lit and soon the flames was licking at her feet. The villagers watched as, screaming the women caught on her fire. Right before she died she yelled out: "I curse you! You have forsaken your children to a life of exile. Only the love of a pure soul can break the curse and free your black hearts!" As her ashes blew in the breeze, the town was silent before a cheer went up. The witch was dead and the town was safe. But there was an uneasy feeling in their hearts. Just what did the witch mean by her final words? When they realized what the curse implied, it was already too late and they were forced to watch they children born monsters, beast. Many were either killed, or killed themselves; not wanting to live such a life. Now, only four of the bloodline remain, trapped by the curse in their own hell. ~Present Day~ Four young men set out determined to break their curse. They travel and travel, hoping that somewhere they would meant the one girl who could free them. They stumbled upon the small town of Salamaria, where live is ordinary. There they meet four girls, sisters who slowly capture their hearts. But, as they fall in love, their beast starts showing more. What are the boys to do? Only love can break the spell but when they are around the girls, their monster side starts trying to take over, hungering for the girls. Can they survive this crazy world they are thrown into?

Especially mine!!!!) ~Other~ Accepted Characters My Character= ~Name~ Karou Fairchild (Her name means "Hope") ~Age~ 15 ~Role~ Shy/Nerdy Girl ~Species~ Human ~Gender~ Female ~Personality~ Karou is a very sweet and shy girl. She would rather spend her time surround by books than surrounded by people. She can be very curious at times and that gets her in trouble more often than not. She is rather timid and jumps at the slightest moment or sound. She is very clumsy and cant walk across a flat surface without tripping or stumbling at least once. She tends to become very flustered and tongue-tied around men though so she usually avoids the other gender for fear of becoming a blushing, stuttering idiot and making a fool out of herself. She is very insecure about herself and hides her body under sweaters that are way too large for her. She can also be very forgetful and oblivious about a lot of things. ~Biography~ Karou was born in a family with four other sisters. She is the the bookworm out of all her sisters and she tends to spend all of her time in her room reading or in her room drawing. She was always well-behaved and she followed all of the rules, never putting a toe out of line. She made good grades in school and always tried her best at everything she did. Her and her sister's mother died when Karou was 7. Her death hit her other sister's harder than it did her seeing as she was so young when it happened. Their father struggled to make ends meet and Karou helped out as much as she could around the house. ~Other~ She is terrified of the dark and thunderstorms and she can't swim.
