alright, looks like all the active players are done for the day, so I'll go ahead and make the opening post for day 5

I also edited the first OOC post with the map of Applegate and a list of active characters and where they live.

If I didn't list a house for you, it's cause I didn't see you choose one (or you're in the forest or a ghost who doesn't live anywhere)
If you're an active player who I didn't list, I'll see you when you post and I'll add you to the list.

Hyper's a he. ;)

I've gotten interested in this RP and I'd like to join if you'll have me and if you've room.

Here's a CS for your perusal and hopefully approval. :)
Name: Ray Stevens

Age: 10 human years/35 pet years

Species: Russian Blue cat

Neighbourhood: Applegate

Appearance: Thick, even, bluish-grey coat; green eyes; green collar with tag shaped to the contours of the brass-coloured trumpet motif on its front side. Tall for his breeding and just slightly gangly.

Personality/Back story: Ray’s life is one big musical and his personality and that of his owners can be described in one word: exuberant. His owners are a happily married middle-aged couple who dote on Ray as much as they can as the child they could never have. Both naturally highly adept at music and both unable to support themselves financially through their talents, they’d spent the last fifteen years working as rubbish collectors, driving their truck around early in the morning and singing their guts out to the radio and to each other. Having travelled through Applegate on their honeymoon, Ray’s owners had instantly fallen in love with the charming little place and fifteen years later they’d been overjoyed to win really, really big in the lottery, finally being able to put their financial problems behind them and achieve their dream of opening their own music shop and musical tutoring service in Applegate.

Ray is just as talented as his owners when it comes to music, and he enjoys playing show tunes, swing, jazz and pop. He’s been taught to play the trumpet that used to belong to his dad and the piano but he’s also a natural singer and dancer and this lends him an instinctive feel for rhythm so he can often be found drumming a beat on anything that comes to paw or singing if he has no other instrument around.

Energetic and friendly, he’s still in the prime of his life and in perfect health and loves to perform at every opportunity, knowing songs appropriate for most any occasion. He never says never and rarely sits still. He and his owners are some of those rare pets/people who are genuinely contented with their lot in life and who allow their happiness to rub infectively off onto others. He’s always happy to share and to pass on his knowledge and love of music to other people and especially to other pets. Others of his breed are known to be fierce hunters but Ray prefers to sing to the mice as, in his opinion, any audience is a good audience. Ray was also stoked when his owners won the lottery because they surprised him with a jazz organ which is something that he’d always dreamed of playing. He’s named for one of his parents’ favourite jazz musicians – Ray Charles.

seems acceptable, just know that their store will need to be run out of their house since there's really no non-house buildings left open.

so unless there are any objections, you can go ahead and start.

You have free reign to practice with my rp character if you wish. I know you already drew a portrait (which is really nice of you) but if you want to use the character for any other drawing uses. You may.

Looks great now! Thanks! If you want to draw any of my characters from any other RP then you're welcome to do that too. :)

Ray's coat is difficult to colour right. It's kind of a dark smoky colour. You're doing really well with it and the rest of him though.

For those of you who don't know, "Bach" is pronounced like "Bark". Hence Jack's joke. ;)

Here's a great orchestral version of Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor".
Here's the original on the pipe organ.

Hmm...
What are my chances of being allowed to introduce a second character? I've a unique idea for one.
Also, what's the policy on magic and powers here? I've heard there are some unusual things in Applegate.

I think its a low magic threshold in applegate and as for a new character. I think as long as Brent and everyone else is okay with it. You should be good.

you can make a second character. And yes, magic is limited to things like sensing ghosts and maybe something like a spider-sense (being able to sense that something bad is about to happen)

So Brent approved the power I had in mind for the character, so here's the character to go with it. You'll all see the power if she has need of it in the RP. :)
Name: Lillian “Lilly” Hughes

Species: Ferret

Age: 7 human years, 24.5 pet years

Neighbourhood: Applegate

Appearance: Lilly is a cinnamon ferret. She has a pale brown head and body with darker limbs and tail. She has brown eyes but no mask. She wears a pair of very dark sunglasses and if you were to look underneath them you’d see that her pupils are completely white. Her collar is brown and the tag is a white plastic lily. She wears a small shoulder satchel and carries a red and white cane with a wrist strap on one end and a white ball on the other. She’s also short, even for a ferret, having been the runt of the litter.

Personality: Lilly is completely blind and has been since birth. She never lets it get in the way of a having a good time though. Despite living in perpetual darkness she’s as bright and active as any other ferret. She’s fluent in Braille and pretends to be fluent in guitar. In fact, pretending is her specialty. She’s an actress through and through and dreams of one day performing on Broadway. Outspoken and friendly, she’ll get along with most anyone and take virtually anything in her stride. She’s memorized a variety of musicals and plays and enjoys quoting from them and even singing although she’s not musical in the slightest. When she’s not acting she loves to read and she loves to explore. She finds her ears and nose can tell her a lot about the world around her but she also has a secret way to “see” things that she’ll use on the odd occasion if she gets lost or stuck. She’s never shared her secret with anybody though. After all, who would believe in real magic?

Back Story: Owned by a young couple with a toddler, Lily was brought to Applegate when the family moved, desiring to raise their child away from the dangerous and rough streets of their home city. Due to the dangers in the city, especially for someone who’s blind, Lily had not been allowed out of her yard much so she’s looking forward to being able to roam and explore and make a few friends. She loves her family but she’s always wanted to socialize with other pets. She’s also recently been given a phone with voice activation software so she can use it to call or message people or use the GPS function without ever having to read the screen. Usually it works fine. Usually. She’s slightly unsure of herself, being that it’s a new area and she has no idea where anything is or what to expect and won’t see any potential dangers coming but being her irrepressible self her excitement and enthusiasm far outweigh her nerves.

Other notes: She can do a kind of "psychic echolocation" whereby she bounces a thought off other pets and uses their understanding of their surroundings to help her work out where she is. She can't look through their eyes as the sights would mean nothing to her but she can use their understanding of where they are in 3D space to get a feel for what's around her.

looks good. You can go ahead and introduce her.


on another note, since Kuro's left the RP for an indefinite amount of time, and Grace and her owner were kind of important to the foxes right now, serence or marinefox, do you want to take control of his characters (only until he comes back if he does)? and if not, does anyone else want to take them or should I just do it?

I'd offer to do it but as I'm new to the RP I don't know enough about them to do it. Heck, I don't even know why they're that important to the foxes. Is there any way to write them out, at least for now?
looks good. You can go ahead and introduce her.
Yay! Thanks! ^^

I think we can write them out of the day, but in the long run they were going to "adopt" the foxes as pets (the quotes because it would only be on paper and they'd still live in the woods) so they wouldn't have any trouble with the law and animal control

Well, as long as there's mention of the adoption happening then I think the story can survive without them actively participating. So long as they're not actually written out but the understanding is there that they're still alive and going about their lives, just without interacting with the other pets.


Oh yeah. I forgot to pick a house for Lilly. How about... Q on Oak Street? Her window can look out over the park. Not that she'd know that. :P

Didn't the adoption conversation end on a "lets not push it further right now" point anyway? The foxes had declined and I think went to the music store.

I think that was only a "think about it and not make a decision yet" type deal, I think it was still on the table. unless I'm wrong and they did definitively say no
