Ahaha. Welcome to Sushi's first writing-project collaboration.

Introduction
An ad naseum introduction to collaborations and this one in particular.

What is this?
This is a writing collaboration, a little bit like a roleplay, but not completely. Basically, it's like a book that multiple people work on. That means, EVERYONE controls ALL the characters. EVERYONE controls the environment and world.

How do I join this?
As a writer: You just post. No profiles or applications needed, especially since the characters and world are all subject completely to every author's manipulation, so long as it makes sense in the flow of events. Remember to read everything so that you understand what's happening at all times!
As a reader: You just post. There are still no applications needed for this, and if you want to read, help think of ideas, or critique the story but not write in the story, that's perfectly welcome.
Readers are welcome to turn into writers and vice versa.

Summary

Cadence Winds and Farle Charles depart from a cave and black-treed forest, leaving behind their friend Ivarine, who died in the cave. Before they leave the forest though, they encounter a shadow-possessed version of Ivarine that fights them briefly. They make it out of the black forest and camp between the forest and a meadow of tall grass.

Meanwhile in the nameless dark lord's palace, a necromancer-knight has brought Ivarine back to life (or maybe she never really died in the first place?) and presents her to the black-eyed majesty as a slave. Instead, the king declares that Ivarine will be his queen and sends her to be washed and dressed. When he is alone again he speaks with a voice and predicts his indestructibility.

As morning rises, Farle wakes up after another dream of the dark lord and he and Cadence hurry on towards the mountains of Shahaile. Cadence again suspects that Farle is somehow related or connected to the dark king. They stop briefly to avoid a shadow wyvern and two Ner'ein, who luckily don't find them and follow the wrong trail. The two arrive at the foothills of the Shahaile at noon and discuss how to convince the Children of Drunesd to help them through the mountains. Meanwhile, they are attacked by a pack of Ner'ein but saved when three Children of Drunesd appear to help them out. One of the Children, Latices, takes them back to the Drunsd camp, where Cadence causes quite a stir.

The chief reveals that Cadence is an aos, si, a fairy, and gives her a silver and amethyst charm that she wears in her hair. During the evening the camp is attacked by earth shadows and with Latices's help Farle and Cadence escape. While walking, Cadence collapses and the three make camp in a nearby cave.

Ivarine is dressed up and at the servant Iyza's urging, accepts the Crown of Shadows. In addition to gaining a lot of power, she meets Amber, the first queen of shadows that is imprisoned in the crown. Amber educates Ivarine on the history and abilities of the dark kingdom over dinner before Ivarine sleeps for the last time.

The next morning, Cadence refuses to wake up and Latices calls a deer to carry her as the three continue for Aatioh to find something a seer mentioned before. Cadence and Farle both had impressions that Ivarine is not dead. Latices apparently has something against Ivarine and scowls whenever they mention her. After lunch on the trail the trio is attacked by a pack of monsters that stop only when Farle somehow convinces them to go away. A dragon hybrid approaches and tells them that she will leave them alone if they leave quickly.

Back at the dark palace, Ivarine is introduced to the dark king's court, which seems to be bent on mocking her. In the first "test" she creates her throne of a broken stool.

Other Notes
Creatures
Wyverns exist. They're like dragons.
Ner'einhave long reptilian bodies and slimy wings. Think nazgulls from LotR.
Elemental Shadows Lost spirits that combine with nature and roam the land. Although usually not belligerent, they can be extremely destructive.
Eni'ein are feather-winged dragons that fly completely silently. They can be bound into a human body that looks like a winged person with tattoos.

The color purple
A motif in the story.
"Purple is a royal color, but too often paid for with a high price of blood."
Amethyst Minutia: charms the aos si used to wear
Amaranthine Torch: A reddish-violet torch of great power. Currently owned by the Children of Drunesd.
Aubergine Staff: A deep purple staff of great power. Apparently somewhere in the Northern Isles.

Cadence knelt at the edge of the chasm, her face streaming with tears as she bid farewell to one of her best friends for the last time.

"Hurry! The cave's closing!" a voice called from behind her and she felt the dead body give a little shudder as if pushing her away. She picked up her bow and sprinted away, her mind yelling silent laments back to the lifeless form.

Blue-gray skies lurked just outside the cave, the same dismal color as her eyes, and the beyond that the land was as black as her hair. Cadence Winds latched her bow on her back and ___

((I hope I left the beginning ambiguous enough. And I managed to name only one character >.<

go ahead and finish my sentence. I just didn't know how I wanted to finish it, which was why I left a "___". Yea, that's one good thing about collabs. You can end mid-sentence if you want to xd .

I'm also blocking off my OOC in color so that if, as Sabrina suggested, we ever finish it and want to publish it, it'll be easy to identify the OOC parts to cut out wink ))
 
PostPosted: Mon Mar 07, 2011 7:26 pm
((Sounds good. Ok so Cadence started off in a cave some where.... Color codeing OOC is a good idea. I'll start off with the last sentence you posted.))

Cadence Winds latched her bow on her back and sprinted through the blackened dead trees in the forest surroudning the cave like a pack of lions surround their prey. As tears escaped her blue-grey eyes, searching through the trees for one of the other member who happened to be with her, she spotted him crouching down besides a burned bush.

"Oh, Farle it... it was terrible."

Farle Charles looked up from the bush he was examining. His eyes were as dark as topaz and his hair the color of a sandy beach. Standing up to his monumental height far above Cadence, for he was like six feet tall, and she... well she wasn't. He reached out both hands as a gesture of hugging.

"What happened, Cadence?" Farle asked her.

"The wall was closing___

"The wall was closing off the cave by the time I reached her, and I only just got out myself," Cadence sobbed, letting Farle comfort her. She let her tears melt away before pulling away and murmured, "She was already dead...I...I was too late. Too slow."

"But you're never too slow," Farle said sympathetically, though his eyes showed he was already working out what happened.

Cadence shook her head and said uttered what was on his mind. "It was a trap."

"They know who we are," he pointed out, and began leading the way away. "But do they know ___

((Farle is such a funkily awesome name. I just want to give him a sword or something. Like a knight! >.< No, but really, it's a neat name.

We don't have to end every post with an unfinished sentence, but it looks like it's just working out like that so far ^_^ I'll go update the character lists in a minute.))

"They know who we are," he pointed out, and began leading the way away. "But do they know what we can do?" He paused questioningly.

"I don't know, Farle, but I'd keep your swoard drawn when we're in their woods." Cadence said slowly still with her bow drawn.

Cadence wiped the rest of her fading tears away and looked around, "I think we need to keep moving. I just want to get away from here."

Farle nodded taking out his ruby hilted swoard with the inscription______ written on the side. It meant _____

((I know right? That really was a cool name I think. smile Lolx sorry kinda bragging. I like the name Cadence it reminds me of light. Oh about the OOC comments, we could put them at the end for comic humor. biggrin ))

Farle nodded, taking out his ruby-hilted sword with the inscription "Xul sucil fo Ancendii" on the side. It meant--quite literally translated-- "Light of Fire" in some ancient language, but Farle couldn't understand for the life of him why something in his family would bear such an inscription. None of his family had specialized in fire-magics, and the sword itself didn't hold any fiery abilities. It glowed. That was about it, according to him.

They had been making steady progress for nearly two hours when Farle stopped and closed his eyes, trying to envision where they were now on his mental map. When he opened them again, Cadence was gone, but soon returned with an arrow in her hand.

"What's that for?" he asked, eyeing the projectile. Cadence didn't use physical arrows, but arrows made of sound waves. So what was with this thing?

((Haha, don't worry. We can both brag about our name-creating awesomeness. Ironically, the word Cadence means rhythm smile

We should definitely post the OOC at the end. > smile Even if so far it's only the two of us writing, it'll be fun to see all the OOC at the very end, with a bunch of people, writers and readers alike. Haha biggrin ))
 
PostPosted: Wed Mar 09, 2011 7:51 pm
((Most definately. biggrin biggrin biggrin biggrin ))

Cadence looked at Farle with fire in her eyes. "I thought I heard something... I thought I might've heard one of them..." She whispered to him holding her arrow mounted on her bow.

Farle turned to look around the forest. He didn't see anything, but the blackness of the forest. All of a sudden from behind him he thought he heard a giggle. Turning from his veiw to look behind, he saw the flash of black hair and dress. "Cadence? Did you hear that?"

Cadence looked behind her where Farle was point with his swoard. "Hear what?"

Before Farle could respond, a shadow darted at them like a bolt of black lightning and Farle blocked only just in time. But there was no time to lose. The person who had snuck up on them was a quick fighter, and Farle could hardly see where the blades were coming from. He was fighting on instinct.

Cadence had leapt back in shock but now had her bow drawn and was watching the battle through squinted eyes as she looked for an opening to shoot. Their battle was a whir, but she managed to lock onto her target. With a silent twang she sent an arrow whizzing past the rogue's ear. As it flew by it dissolved into a high-pitched note that ___

((You know... I kinda like the title The Colaboration.... We can build on it... smile ))

As it flew by it dissolved into a high-pitched note that hurt the roages ears and made it fall over crouching in pain. Cadence ran over to pose another arrow above it's head while the high pitched sound was still ringing out. Farle ran over to the rouge with Cadence. Posing the swoard over it's heart, they waited for the black shadows to reveal the person underneath them.

The shadows slowly drifting away disolving into the earth, Farle fell back from the person. Cadence lowered her arrows for a moment while the person was being revealed. It was a young girl. A skinny weak looking fragile girl that had attacked them. She had ash blonde hair and was facing down on the ground. Almost collapsed on the ground was her fragle frame. She wore weak clothing, just mere torn jeans and a ratty old tee-shirt.

"How...?" Farle started to ask.
"I just... I don't know. Maybe____
