Rules

Respect.
Drama is better kept IC. Respect is key between members; if you want respect you must give respect. If there's a problem with a member please contact either one of the mods or one of the admins.

Site Rating
TAOE is an intermediate to advanced, mature rated site [M], so we ask that all members to be just that; mature. There can be some pretty heavy subject matter so be warned. No characters below 18 years old. NPCs like children and such can be mentioned. ​There will be no child molester characters allowed on this site.

Word Count
Though there's no word count, we ask that you try and match your partner's number of words. It's no fun when you write a nice big paragraph and you get a couple sentences back, right? Then don't do it.

Number of Characters
There's no limit to the amount of characters you can make, however before you can make a second character, we ask that your first character has 10 IC posts. Same goes for any subsequent character. PLEASE KEEP YOUR CHARACTERS ACTIVE IF YOU WANNA KEEP THEM.

Registration
Register your character as "First Last" on the site, with your character names. If you messed up somehow talk to an admin, they'll be more then glad to edit your name for you. OOC accounts are reserved for Admins and Moderators, so please do not make them!

Avatars
Avatar pics are 250px by 300px. The personal image on the minioprofile is a square and will resize automatically. This can be an image that represents the player, much like the avatars on the cbox! The Gif is 230px by 110px. Since the skin was so nicely coded by YunoTheNine, we ask to have high quality images please, keep the site pretty. Here is a link to help crop images and gifs: EZGif | PicMonkey

Faceclaims
We ask that all faceclaims/play bys to be of actors of age (17 and older). We also ask them to be of real people (actors, models, etc, someone you can get pics and gifs), no anime or other cartoon characters. If you want to use art of your character you can put that in your signature, if you wish.

God-Modding
There will be none tolerated. There are rules to character powers and such for that reason, please see those sections in order to make sure you're not making your character too strong. If you have any questions contact an admin or mod and they'll be more then happy to help!

Templates
We simply ask (please) that you use the basic template which is provided within the posts, super easy, either click on the button that says "template" when you write your post or write [template][/*template] at the beginning and end of a post (minus the star). Plotters are required to have a template, but there's lots of resource sites for that such as Caution to the Wind

Classification
Generally speaking, the only classification changes characters can undergo is from Pure to Imperfect. Characters can POTENTIALLY go back to Elisium pretending to be Pures, but that would be a very elaborate plot that needs to be discussed with either By or Jonah before it happens.

Copyright
Everything on this site is copyrighted to the said members or individuals here on TAOE. Skin was made by YunoTheNine of Shine. Templates and Graphics belong to the rightful owners, and there will be no stealing characters either. So we will put it frank, you steal ANYTHING without giving the proper credit, you will be banned. No warning.

MOST IMPORTANTLY
We're all here to have a good time! So kick back, write loads, and have fun~! Make some friends! Like, for instance, Steve Buscemi, who also happens to be the password that you need to send to an admin via PM in order to get accepted. ;)

Plot

GENERAL

TAOE is set in the biggest city, Haven, of the Isle of Man, an island reserved for those the government deems 'imperfect'. Sexual orientation, gender expression, mental and physical health, intelligence, your willingness to cooperate... It all leads up to your ultimate downfall, the one that brings you to the doors of Haven. The weather is harsh, the streets are filthy, and most of the inhabitants live in poverty, fighting for sport and profit, and joining gangs to get by. It's a tough life, that in Haven, but hey; someone has to be a scapegoat.

But little does the government know, there's something about the Isle of Man that changes its inhabitants. They call it the Flux, and it's quite the phenomenon, leaving people who were once only usual in spirit or body, now unusual in ability. It's like a power, one that can come suddenly, or over time, or even not at all. It all depends, person to person, and is, for whatever reason, all based around the citizen's personality. Whether you're Pure or Imperfect, you have a chance of being blessed, or cursed.

Yet, through this rejection and hardship this is where home lies, and this is your chance to make it so.

HISTORY

The Authority is in place to protect us. They serve us to the best of their ability, they protect the citizens of this country until their very last dying breath. Long ago was a time where there was no peace. War raged upon the land, death and destruction ravaged the people, destroyed their homes, split them apart into chaos. In their desperation for control over the anarchy and disarray, the Authority stepped into their ranks, unannounced, unwelcome at first. This did not last.
They lured the people into their grasp with the promise of peace and prosperity, a vow to food, the end of crime and violence. Of course, the good, the bad and the ugly wanted in on this pledge, and many started taking advantage of the system. Like leeches they sucked, squeezed what they could of the government, to the point where there was general alarm, the populace began to notice! And thus began the weeding.
At first it was but criminals, the worst of the worst, all raided and plucked from the public eye, sent away to an undisclosed location for the safety of the country. But their haul through time grew in size; illness causes panic, those who are sick must be put somewhere else, disability, lest it be mental or physical, leads to voids in the community, gender should be a norm of two, no more no less, and those who do not confirm are to be re-educated or removed... the list for their demands grew longer and more elaborate.

Soon, correctional and holding facilities for these so dubbed Imperfects were so overcrowded you might as well akin them to cans of sardines. The Authority realized they needed a different strategy to keep these people from their Pure society.

They found an island, abandoned from times past, a city crumbling from within. The Isle of Man, reclaiming the city as their own they called it Haven in order to mask the true atrocity behind their Elisium.

This was sixty years ago. We are now the year 2021, three generations into Haven's rebirth.

Whether you're new or old to this community, one person we have always got to remember is out loving friend Kaityn Rayne. She was a very creative and great person, easy to talk to and always there. Anyone who knew Kaityn knows just how nice she was.

For a lot of us, she was the first person to speak to us and welcome us to the community. As of the 28th of June she has no longer been with us. It's a very sad thing, although Kaityn was the kind of person who wouldn't want us to be upset with her not being here. That being said, in her honor we are working hard to write amazing new stories. Her memory will always be with us. Kaityn, we love you. ♥

Alexis never really went to the Authority district, mostly because she was a criminal and she didn't want to get caught. There were too many people there to see her steal, and authority sounded like such a hard word. Not that she knew exactly what it meant, but she knew there were police there, she had heard people say that once. Alexis didn't want to get arrested, but she no choice but to steal, she had no other way to get food, or money to buy it. So, she had decided to try her luck at the authority hospital.

Okay, so it might be too big of a target for her, but she was getting desperate. She didn't always get something to eat every day, so she really needed luck to be on her side that day. She was getting a bit on the thin side, though you couldn't see it because she was wearing a rather large hoodie. It was mostly to hide her loot, but also to hide how thin she actually was. She didn't need pity, she just needed food.

Walking through the corridors of the hospital, looking for potential targets to steal from, was quite unnerving for Alexis. There were so many people there, too many to even try to take anything. She would probably be caught before she even tried to reach for anything. Just being in the corridor was too much for her at the moment, she was too nervous and thought she might draw too much attention to herself if she kept walking through the halls.

So, she quickly turned to her right and went through the door she saw there, thinking she was going into an empty room, so she could calm her nerves before she tried to leave the hospital. She was standing with her hands and forehead resting against the door, trying to breath deeply. She had no idea that there was someone else in the room with her, so she kept standing like that. Doing her best to calm down.

The room was far, far from empty, but the presence she'd missed in there wasn't very large, as his head was still awry from the hit it had received now two months ago.
He did not make himself known, not for some time. Instead he sat there, with his hands folded together, quietly, carefully, propped up into a sitting position with towels in the tall wheelchair. They'd taken him out of the bed and had put him there in the hopes of relieving him of some of the bed sores he'd started to develop, not realizing how much pain they'd put him through in the first place to get him to that point.

And though he was in a lot of pain, he was now able to discern noises from background, and he could tell that someone had entered his room. He couldn't turn his head to see who it was, nor did he care, instead he immediately spoke as best as he could, despite his words being choppy, and hoarse. "...I don't want...." he started, his tone more that of a rattle, as though every breath he was exhaling should be his very last. "...to sit." he warned, thinking perhaps this was a nurse, and not a young woman looking to steal some goods. He did not strain himself to look at who it was, either, figuring he would not need to do that. They'd come to him, they had to come to him. "Please..." he whispered now, giving a harsh, noisy swallow, before he kept talking. ".....put me back." he nearly begged, and didn't move. He couldn't, he couldn't do anything at all, gods be damned. He wanted to get up, he wanted to scratch his nose, he wanted to scream, but he didn't have the strength to do it. Instead he sat there, and he waited for some sort of response, some sort of acknowledgement that he was there and he was left to suffer.
And he was in all honesty. So few cared for his wellbeing here, so few cared about him as a person. He was forgotten, a man to have killed so many? Of course nobody wanted anything to do with him. But he did not know that. He could not remember anything from the accident that rendered him useless.

The room Alexis had entered, was so quiet that it might as well have been empty. She was so caught up in her own mind, that she didn't notice anything of what was going on around her. Why had she even decided to come here? It was too dangerous for her to be in the Authority district, there were too high a risk of getting caught. She wasn't even sure why she had decided to go there. Of course, the loot she could have gotten might have been worth more than what she usually got, but it wasn't worth getting caught for.

When the man behind her suddenly spoke, she froze in place, trying hard not to move an inch, maybe not even breathing. She wondered if she should just open the door and leave, she didn't want to be a bother to the man. But after a while she slowly turned around to look at him. He sounded so weak and as if he was in so much pain, and immediately she felt so sorry for him. When he nearly begged her to put him back, she slowly walked over to stand in front of him. She probably wouldn't be able to help him the way he wanted her to, but maybe she could keep him company. If he wanted her to.

Though she did wonder if her trying to talk to him might make him feel worse. If he freaked out because of her voice inside his head, it might just bring him more pain, and she didn't want that. But he knew she was there now, he had heard her, and seen her since she was almost right in front of him. She tried to make eye contact with the man, and tried to make her thought sound as soft as possible. "Hello." Was all she dared to say, until she knew if he would freak out at the sound of her voice. It wouldn't be the first time that had happened.

Having very few people enter the premises meant that he had wrongly assumed she was one of those so called personnel. She didn't even respond to him at first, instead she froze in place, though he couldn't exactly see what she was doing. But he thought she was about to leave. Vince honest to god thought she was going to leave him that room, alone again, and so tears started to stream down his burning eyes and stiff cheeks. It was times like this he wanted nothing short of death for himself, simply because the pain was far too great. Hid body weak and his mind even weaker, he was far more ready to give up then continue on in such a state.
Little did he know he could not die.

Little did he know she approached him, having not felt or heard her come closer to him, so when he looked up and found her before him he was quite surprised. Like many here in this hospital he did not recognize her, or anyone, but what he did notice was that she did not wear the same apparel as they all did; no weird two piece one color clothes, no white coats and suits underneath, none of that. She wore civilians clothes and she was young, whoever she was.
Vince on the other hand looked like he was in bad, bad shape. Barely able to hold his heavily bandaged head up the man seriously seemed like he'd been through hell and back. The man had many broken bones, namely both of his arms, his leg, collarbone too. He had drains coming out from beneath his head bandage, his chest, and he was crying when she approached him. With eyes unfocused by the injury and the water accumulating at his bottom lip, he caught her glance, and a distorted voice hit his head.
[i]Hello.[/b] it told him, sounding a lot like a very soft, very badly tuned radio. The man didn't say anything at first, not thinking much of the voice but also not realizing that it was coming from her. His brain was struggling to process the information, and so he found himself having no idea the voice even belonged to a woman. He simply stared at her, blankly, behid the hazy mask of confusion and hurt that rest there.

The man seemed so weak, in so much pain, so lonely, that Alexis didn't think she could leave him now. He was crying, as if he desperately needed company, someone to listen to him. She could be that person for him for a little while, if he really wanted her to. It wasn't as if she had anywhere else to be, other than maybe trying to find something to eat. But she would wait until she got away from the Authority District. Anything else was too dangerous. But no one would think anything of her if she just sat with this man for a while, would they? She couldn't get arrested for that, right? She was pretty sure she couldn't.

He didn't seem to hear her when she tried to talk to him. Maybe they hadn't really had eye contact, though she was pretty sure that they had. Or maybe her voice had been too soft for him to hear it, maybe there were too many other things going on in his head. She had no idea, all she could do was try again. Maybe if she sat down in front of him, a bit loser to him, he would be able to hear her. Well, she wouldn't know if she didn't try.

So she went over to get a chair to put in front of him, and gently sat down to try and talk to him again. "Can you hear me?" She asked him a little louder than she had spoken before, hoping that he would be able to hear her now, but also hoping that it wouldn't freak him out. "I'm sorry to disturb you, sir. But you look like you need someone to talk to, and I'm happy to offer you my company, if you like." She continued softly, hoping that she really wasn't disturbing him, but he really looked lonely, so she probably wasn't.

He heard a voice.

He assumed she was talking to him, whoever she was. He did not care if she was a person that worked here or not; this wasn't working for him.

"...I want.... to lay..." he told her, managing to muster up just enough strength that he was able to shove some air out of his lungs and through his vocal chords. Hands twitched, eyes fluttered shut and wrenched together for a moment as he desperately wished the agony away. But it would not, he knew it subconsciously it would not, which is why he begged for her help.
"It hurts like this..." he trailed off again, a thin filament of saliva clinging to his lip as it did not have anywhere to go. He could barely eat by mouth, so he had a feeding tube up his nose, but that did not mean he had not lost what seemed to be a significant amount of weight. His skin was thicker where one would imagine his musculature had once been.

Company? He wasn't even sure what that meant, did she want to stay near him? No, that wouldn't do. He was no good, he was a dead man, a vegetable, he couldn't keep her company. He did want her help but he wouldn't be able to hold a conversation, so why would he try? He had a hard time understanding what it was that she wanted out of him, and he didn't think he would be able to help her.
Befuddled, confused, he made another face of complaint, and looked at her with eyes of lacking focus, one of his pupils clearly larger then the other, obviously not entirely present in his own head. Trapped. Stuck. That's all he knew right now.
