Circus Solo Write

Circus Solo Write

"What is this?" you may be thinking. This is no normal circus solo write. I read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern months ago, and I loved the drama and magic hidden behind the patrons' views. So I made my own twist.

Welcome to the Circus of Dust! It's a circus filled with talents that range from magic to feats of human strength and skill. The people within travel throughout the world, but what people don't know is that they battle supernatural and mysterious dark forces, so people who can join the circus are chosen very carefully. Recently, there have been uncanny connections between the supernatural attacks (though no one knows what it is yet). The Circus typically battles things such as a magical troublemaker wreaking havoc on the streets or a crime group planning some scheme to boringly take over the world. 

I want you to make characters! It's my first solo write and I know Crowd Sorcery was amazing to see and be a part of (although I wasn't part of it myself)


- Everyone must be human, no vampires something similar exist

- If you have magic, you must have a limiter such as tiring out or, risk burning alive

- If you have magic, I would prefer for it to be a specific ability such as waterbending or illusions

- I want to limit the amount of magic users to four

- Try to answer as many of the questions on the charrie sheet I will comment soon 

Mia says "ordi". No, this is not ordinary. 

I'm excited to see where this will turn!

This looks cool! Reserving a non-magic user. When is the sheet going up?

Laylanie says xrce. Circe? Like, the Greek Goddess of magic. Seems appropriate for this thread, if not my charrie.

Everyone arrived so fast! I forgot to note this but I'm imagining most of the characters being close since they are traveling together probably for the rest of their lives when they're with the circus.

Here's the charrie sheet:




Skills (non-magical):

Magic (if you have any):

What performance you do (do you run a maze, magic tricks, etc.):

Name: Ashley "Phoenix" Connors

Age: 14

Personality: She has a good sense of humor, and is always making witty remarks. She's so good at making everyone laugh that you can hardly tell what she's really like. Underneath her wit and cheerfulness, she struggles with anxiety and depression, but she doesn't show that side of herself unless provoked. If someone makes her angry, her magic gets out of control.

Skills (non-magical): She's very athletic and good at controlling her magic when she's not angry. She's also very witty.

Magic (if you have any): She can control fire.

What performance you do (do you run a maze, magic tricks, etc.): She does magic tricks that involve her fire powers.

name: Ezekiel O.

Age: 15

Personality:Indifferent,  flirty at times

Skills, non magical: Baking, singing, custodial work, riddles, improv, translating CAPTCHAS

No magic skills

Performance: usually just does custodial/management work around the circus, but can do a bit on translating CAPTCHAS if there's an emergency, and works with Andrea's trapeze act

Background: Eziekiel always worked for custodians, hoping one day to be in a spotlight somewhere. He would spend all his time either listening to show tunes or hanging out with custodians and management people at his father's workplace.

His father was a ringmaster at a circus nearby, but ot fell apart as Zeke grew to a teenager. His father could no longer support Zeke so he kicked him out. homeless and helpless, Zeke wandered lonely forest infested with CAPTCHAS and other ferocious creatures. over time, he learned to have a respect for each and every one of the creatures. 

One day, he heard a horrific growl from the Northern tip of the forest. rushing over, he found a flamboyantly dressed girl struggling to get away from a bear. He fought the bear off, saving the girl. Her name was Andrea. Zeke immediately patched up the girls wings, which had been damaged by the attack.

Andrea asked him why he was here, and he explained that he lived here. She knew he needed a home, and asked if he would join her father's friend circus. she needed a trapeeze partner.

Zeke immediately agreed, loving the circus, but was hesitant about trapeezes. once he got on one, though, he soared thru the air like an eagle! However, Zeke still loved his animals, so he only performed at the end of every other day. 


Name: Andrea Mitchell Peterson Getty

Age: 15 

Personality: bubbly, social butterfly

non-magic skills: baking, improv, social work, singing, juggling, trapeze, acrobatics.

Magic skills: transmogrification, flying.

Performance: trapeeze, substitute clown, substitute any part that requires a cute girl.

Andrea was used to the spotlight.  She was the cutest girl wherever she went. She was a light skinned, Puerto-Rican Dominican short, adorable and a smile like , WOAH. (anybody get the reference?) So naturally, boys and girls would look at her wherever she went. Whether flying home with glossy gossamer fairy wings if doing a test, she was always the center of attemtion.

she decided she liked this attention, and loved singing, so she tried out for musical theater. She soon found out she hated her voice  even though she loved to sing, and was embarrassed in front of the whole school by singing. (she felt that way). 

After that fiasco, she tried out gymnastics. she was the best in her class, and loved every minute of it. She would practice all the time, and her daddy joked once, saying she should go join his friends circus. She took this seriously, so the next day her father drove her to that circus. she loved the trapeze artist there, and met her after the show. the two became very close, and Andrea started to come regularly.


Eventually, Andy began to practice on the trapeze herself. She fell a lot, if course, but always git back up. she went every day. after school, to the circus. Thankfully, there were not any younger there staring at her, as they would every day. It was her and the trapeze artist.

The artist, named Teresa, helped Andrea reach into her magic too. She vpild turn into cats, dogs, wolves, birds, and mang other things, but what Andrea lived most was to soar thru the air. This helped her a lot in her act;  as gliding through the air was a great finish with her wings.

One day, Andy joined the circue herself, as the artists assistant., people would watch her all the time as she traveled from platform to platform and captivated audience after audience. She loved every minute of it. 

one day though, something terrible happened. Andrea couldn't make the show, so a boy named Jake had to take her place. Jake was horrific. Teresa fell during the act, cracking both her legs and ending her circus career. The Circus had to close down its trapeze act, as Andrea refused to do it with Jake. She volunteered for other acts that required cute girls, like riding on elephants and magic tricks, but stayed locked away sobbing ina janitors closet mostly.

One day, a friend recommended she take a walk in the nearby forest, rumored to grant wishes. She let her bright, gossamer wings spread and walked. 

This ended up being a huge mistake, as a few minuets laterally bear attacked her. She struggled, writhing in her clothes as she fought vigorously. The gear tore apart her wings until...BAM!

a boy came along. Andrea barely remembered anything besides his looks. She fell in love in first sight. He was the hottest boy she had ever met. But what was more is that in patching her wings up, he had not stolen a glance at her once. She was confused, but then realized: This boy did not care about her looks! only about her.pain! she jumped with joy, much to her caretakers diamay.

she asksd why he was here, and he said- he LIVED HERE?No way!  this boy  perfect was homeless! She cod not let this opportunity slip by.

"Wellm, would you..... run away to the circus with me?"
