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.

In loving memory of Kaityn Rayne.

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. ♥

About

Alexis is mute, she has been her whole life. Which, as you can probably imagine, left her pretty closed up. She had no way of communicating with others, since no one ever taught her how to read, write or to use sign language. Though she wanted to get to know other people and have friends, she was stuck in her own head with no way of expressing herself to others. Or that was until she discovered her flux, which is to project her thoughts into other peoples' heads. This makes her able to communicate with people, which she extremely happy about. She has to look into peoples' eyes to be able to project her thought into their mind, which forces her to be more open and brave about meeting people, but she doesn't mind. She has spent her whole life locked up inside her own head, now it's time for her to shine.

She has had to live on the streets for a long time, stealing what ever she needs to survive. So she quickly did her best to become a very capable fighter, to defend herself from other thieves, or if anyone ever caught her stealing. She has become very strong and quick over the years, but she might still need some help to become even better.

Friends

For most of her life, she has not had many of these. Since not very many people has the patience for a person who can't talk at all. But now that she is able to communicate, she is very much on the look out for friends. She would love to have someone she can talk to, who won't freak out when they hear her voice inside their head. Most of all she just wants to belong somewhere.

Enemies

She has probably made a few of these over the years; people she has stolen from, those she has fought with, or just people who thinks she is a freak. She doesn't exactly want enemies, but what can she do? She has to eat, to survive, and she can't expect everyone to try to understand her.

Lovers

This is something she is very open to! She is into both men and women, so anyone whose interested can just come over and try their luck with her. If she's interested in you, she will probably try to catch your attention too. However, she does understand if the way she talks is too freaky for you, and she will back off if you ask her to.

River & Alexis
I think River and Alexis would make an interesting pair! River loves to talk, talk, talk, so if him and Alexis were close enough, he could be kind of like an interpreter for her? Of course she can still totally talk for herself using her flux, but if she didn't feel like it, River could totally do it. ^^ I imagine it's probably pretty exhausting having to look people in the eyes all the time to talk to them, haha. He's also pretty good at getting people out of messes (though he's also quite good at getting himself into them, lol), so he wouldn't be a bad person to have as a friend since Alexis does some, uh, not-legal stuff. xD

So what do you think? :D

Alexis would certainly love to have him as a friend, but since she learned about her flux she is pretty happy to be able to talk by herself. She wants to use her own voice, so the interpreter thing might not be something she's interested in in the start of their friendship. I think if something would be exhausting for her, it would be the focusing on projecting her thoughts, but if she gets too exhausted to do that, he wouldn't be able to talk for her either. Since she can't tell him what she wants to say. She will be happy to have someone to help her out when she's in trouble, that's something she has always wanted.

Kaeneus and Alexis


Okay, honestly, Kae would find Alexis very cute. He would have a pretty much instantaneous crush on her, and think her way of talking is really cool. His flux is very minor (he doesn't even know he has it) so he's always very interested in learning about other people's gifts. There are a few ways they could meet. I'm not sure if Alexis is at all involved with any of the gangs (maybe to fence her stolen goods?) but Kae is with the Brats and could meet her this way. Alternatively, he could catch her trying to steal some parts or something from his workshop?

I'm definitely down for that! River needs more... normal friends, haha. And he could definitely help her out of trouble! In fact, he'd probably love to because he loves to hear himself speak, I swear, lol.

Alexis would probably have a little bit of a crush on him too, he does seem pretty cute himself. She would also be very happy that he likes the way she talks, it will make her feel more at ease with him. She hadn't really been in contact with any of the gangs before she discovered her flux, so maybe we can say that she tries to steal from him so she can get money for food?


River & Alexis
Yay!! Alexis really needs friends! And she will love to have someone to talk to. How should we have them meet?

Hmm... maybe River sees her stealing something and confronts her about it? But not really "confront" bc he doesn't care if she steals, lol (unless it's from him <_< ). Just kind of a playful thing like "I caught you." :D

ALEXIS & JAC
I think Alexis and Jac would be a riot together. Jac has zero friends now and never really has ever. She doesn't know how to make friends, what to do with them after you get one, how often you feed or water them, etc.

On her good days, Jac is detached and will talk your head off about any/everything. She will vent, bitch, complain, give her opinion on all/everything. The fact that the pair could have a one sided conversation without Jac even realizing Alexis is mute would be hilarious in itself. But much like Alexis, Jac grew up stealing and scavenging to get by. If they hit it off, they could make quite the pair working together.

I would love for Alexis to have a kind of partner in crime! She really needs friends! Though if ac keeps talking to Alexis without ever looking her in the eyes, she won't be able to get a word in, so that might piss her off a little bit. XD But how do you think they should meet?

Jac is a very aggressive person, so eventually the eye contact will happen -- especially if she realizes at some point she has been rambling and hasn't gotten a reply to a question that may not have been rhetorical. But it would be a huge surprise to find out about Alexis's flux that way, so that would be fun to react to lolol.

We could start off with them straight up just running into one another. Maybe Alexis has an off day and gets caught picking up something and Jac -- considering she's an Ace for the Brats anyway -- just so happens to feel sorry for her and weasels her out of the situation. I really like the idea of them being partners-in-crime together!

I would love for them to meet like that. But you should probably know that Alexis really doesn't like that she has to steal to survive. But it's the only way for her to live, so she has to do it. But she really would love if she didn't have to.

I will see if I can get a thread up for them. Do you have any preference for where it should take place?
