New RP In
New RP In
In the tradition of ZNZ (and probably many others), I'm starting a new RP thread, open to all! Create a character for yourself and put yourself in the story! I'm a fan of magic and medieval times, so that's where this story is set. My only request is that we don't add modern things like cell phones or laser beams... or spaceships. Right! Off we go!
"Dreg, I'm telling you, this is a bad idea!" Thresh hissed at his twin. Dreg of course paid him no mind.
"You remember your line, right?" asked Dreg, his eyes glinting with anticipation. That was the only visible difference between the two--their eyes. Both had long blond hair kept perpetually back in a ponytail, tanned skin, crooked grins that tended to make the opposite sex giggle, and perfectly straight, white teeth to go with. Dreg had blue eyes the color of the summer sky. Thresh, on the other hand, had red. Girls would fawn over Dreg until the cows came home, but one glance at Thresh and they would stare at him as if he were a new species of stinging insect. He'd learned to live with it--by sixteen he really hadn't been given a choice--but he'd be a liar if he said it didn't bother him. Dreg was the only one who looked at him like a normal person.
Which is why he usually went along with whatever his brother said, even if it was clearly a bad idea. Like right now.
"Yeah, but really... you're seriously going to go through with--"
"Thresh, please!" Dreg fixed him with a calm, blue stare. "This is going to work. I promise. And we'll be able to feed the girls for a month!"
Thresh pictured their three little sisters back at their house--hut, really; pictured how skinny they were and how resigned even little Terra had become to their tragic state of poverty. No five year-old deserved to starve to death. That made up Thresh's mind.
"Okay," he said, squaring his shoulders, "let's do this. Please make sure my head stays on my shoulders if something goes wrong."
Dreg grinned his crooked grin. "Nothing will go wrong, brother," he promised. "In three hours we will be feasting on roast pheasant!"
