Current Events
Updated: 6/20/2016

Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, has started! We also have our previous plot's part two running next to it for Azores! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our older plot, Azores, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Azores plot is Grantus and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Philemon.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules!

PostSubject: Would Texting Work? [Naomi]   Wed Feb 11, 2015 2:57 am

Hyde’s relationship with Naomi was still a little rocky so far, but he wondered if there was any way that he could make it up to her somehow? With that being said, Hyde began to search on the internet on all the fun things that they could do. Hyde would then remember that music stimulates the soul, it’s possible that there is some kind of instrument or a sound of an instrument that Naomi might like. With that being said, Hyde decided to invite Naomi to the music store. It’s a place that Hyde haven’t really got a chance to visit himself, perhaps there was a small wooden guitar. He would ask her, but he kind of thought that she might not go. For starters, Hyde decided that he would send an email from his phone to her.

Email- “You know, for the amount of time that we knew each other, there isn’t much that I know about you. Though, I was hoping to change that. What kind of music do you like?”


Hyde would then lay down on his bed and wait.

Naomi was lying in bed, for once not on an electronic device, but reading a book. She was debating going to college so she could find a real job. Not some fancy one, but maybe an online one or a community college if she had to go to a physical campus. The only down side was that she heard the professor’s expected you to be well versed in literature. Wait… did that apply to a technical college? Was a technical college even the place she needed to go? She had no clue. She had never thought about this before. And for that matter, all of these books were stupid. They had such flowery language and she couldn’t understand a word of it. Did these people even speak English? She thought not. She was getting frustrated with the book in her hand when she heard her computer chime. Oh thank goodness. Someone had sent her a message. She would fold the corner of the book and throw it off to the side so she didn’t have to look at it again.

She sat down at the seat in front of her computer and opened her email. She had two accounts: one for personal and one for business. She was hoping this was business related so she could reassure herself in her abilities, but it turned out to be personal. Still, not bad… until she saw the sender. Hyde Mizumi. She would place her hand to her forehead and sigh. What did he want now? Didn’t they just meet up? She hadn’t gotten any new information since then and she wasn’t in the mood to deal with him. Still, it was odd. His message had nothing to do with anything of value. She had to read it again to make sure she wasn’t crazy. With a raised eyebrow she would respond:

You don’t know about me because I haven’t told you about me. It’s not like that kind of information is important anyway. >.> If you really must know though, I don’t care what type of music it is. I like what I like and don’t like what I don’t like. Saying you like one type is too constraining. Not everything a genre produces is gold (or platinum in this case). Is that all, because I have a book to get back to (and aweful book, but still).

She sent the message and waited for his reply so she could get one with her life. This was so out of the blue.

Hyde’s phone made a small jingle as he looked down at the words and noticed that Naomi actually contacted him back. That was a bit encouraging even though she wasn’t too interested in the whole music thing. Sitting back up again, Hyde hunched over in order to message her back.

Well it’s not like I was limiting it to only one kind with my question. I was just rather curious is all. I didn’t mean to bother you while you were reading a book; I just thought we could talk for a moment. I haven’t really been using the net to email like that, but I figured that you would be the first person that I tried it with. Anyway, what kind of book are you reading? You make it sound boring, but I think it could be fun.”

Maybe hyde was pushing it just a bit, but he wasn’t going to give up just yet.

Of course, another message came in. Considering how quickly he responded, he wasn’t doing anything of value. If he was, the response would have been slightly delayed. She actually considered waiting a few minutes to make it seem as if she was doing something else, but she wasn’t that rude. She would just suck it up and reply to him.

You really haven’t used email before? I’ve been doing this since I was an elementary school student. Anyone that was born after 1980 should have used email at least once by this point in time. Well, assuming they aren’t a baby. Did you live under a rock until now? And it’s just some confusing book about a maid and some servant and a creepy kid and a ghost (?) and a teacher. I’m half way through and I have no clue what’s going on, other than I’m pretty sure the servant that was dating the maid is into the young kid. It’s a messed up book, but it’s apparently a classic… I think. I personally don’t get why. Also, the cover has a child staring into my soul. I’m concerned about the era in which this book was written. They must have been really messed up… OMG! This book was only written about sixty years ago. What the hell!?

The way Naomi wrote messages was different than the way she spoke. This was far less formal and more relaxed. It was also more free flowing, going wherever she needed it to go.

Reading about the book kind of made Hyde’s skin crawl just a little bit. It seemed like some kind of tragic love story, with everyone falling in love with the wrong people. Though, at least she told him about the book.

“I wouldn’t say that I lived under a rock, I just never got around to it since I’m around and about. It’s either I call or somehow run into people while I make my usual rounds. As for the book, you are right about one thing. It definitely sounds like a classic, probably a book that some psychologists use in order to determine how the human mind works or something. Or maybe the ghost represents a curse and possess the kid, making the kid look like some kind of older adult to the servant, which could explain the attraction. So who is the main character so far, or whose point of view is all of this coming from. The teacher? Or is this just an accumulation of everyone’s stories coming together? It might seem like an awful book to you, but are you by chance into horror stories like this?”

This seemed like something that would be a bit interesting to talk about with her.

She had to think about the answer to his questions. It felt weird to be talking about a book she barely understood this casually. After all, she couldn’t explain something she didn’t understand.

You live in the modern era. Learn to use the internet and technology. They are your friend. Heck, my theory is that the world will end when technology stops working. People will go mad and begin burning down the world. Seems legit. The person experiencing the story is the teacher. Actually, I think she’s a governess (I don’t get the difference). She definitely seems to think the kid is possessed, but that’s what I’m confused about. The book doesn’t make it clear if she’s right or if she’s just crazy. Plus, the servant is just creepy. I also think he’s dead. He’s the ghost. The maid is the person he was having an affair with (even though it was only wrong because they were both working under the same person and that wasn’t supposed to be allowed). Do you see why I’m lost?

Also, horror stories are boring. It’s all gore and no atmosphere. What really matters is how you build it up, but no one does that anymore. It’s so stupid. I miss when people actually knew how to scare me instead of just shooting ketchup out of their necks. (v.v) At least this thing is making me think. Although, the thinking is hurting my brain. I don’t wanna do this anymore. *Naomi is debating setting the book on fire*

“ I guess we have our own opinions about technology, I am rather curious how you would handle a camping situation with no electronics though. As for the  way you valued atmosphere, I would think that science fiction or a basic adventure book would suit your taste right. Though, I am curious about something. Why are you reading a book that you don’t want to read? Is it for class or something? I mean, assuming  you go to Zela or some private school or something?

Also, I don’t think you should set the book on fire. Setting off the smoke alarms of where you are wouldn’t be a great thing to do if you have a lot of electronics around…aka…the sprinklers.”


It was safe to make a guess that he was around Naomi’s age range. It was a question that Hyde haven’t really gotten a chance to explore. Was she some college student or  something?

Don’t even joke about going camping. That sounds like literal hell to me. Spending a day on Lunapa is bad enough. Besides, I’d never be without technology. I couldn’t live without my tablet. I prefer to be part of the world than to reject the way it’s heading. If the technology apocalypse comes though, maybe I’ll consider camping. And you’re wrong. I like fantasy the best. That has the best setting because they have to make up everything from scratch. If you don’t plan it all out you end up with something completely unfulfilling. It’s a delicate balance. I also like dystopia, but that’s a bit trickier to understand.

And who said I don’t want to read it? I would never read a book that I didn’t want to. Doing that is just stupid and a complete waste of time. Do people actually do that? That’s dumb. *sets the book on fire anyway and uses it’s decaying carcass to summon a better book* <-- Because that will work, right?


She obviously avoided the question of where she went to school. It wasn’t that she didn’t have any kind of education at all. She just did it online (and she had to admit the system wasn’t as good as when she was a regular student). It worked for her though.

“Oh, so you like the book after all. I figured you were reading the book out of personal interest or something that had nothing to do with school, but you was so critical of it. So I kind of thought otherwise, like it was a school assignment that gave you some sort of obligation. Other than that, I camped more times than I can remember. Not to say that I prefer a life without technology, but there were some cases when I didn’t exactly had a permanent place to stay. Either that or there were things that I had to do that took more than a day of travel and whatnot. This was all before I came over here to Azores though.

Well in other news, what else do you like? Do you like manga? It is definitely based off of fantasy sometimes and I do have a few favorites you might like. “


Hyde was trying to keep on topic and get to know Naomi a little better. She was much easier to talk to on the net for some reason; he didn’t feel nervous or uneasy about her intimidating presence. Hyde had no clue that girls could be that intimidating until he saw her, so he didn’t really know how to handle that. However, the conversation was going alright for now.

No, I dislike this book pretty strongly. I just said that I don’t not want to read it. It may be awful, but it’s a classic. If I don’t understand the classics I’ll never get anywhere. Although, I personally don’t see the point. I get that these things are written with such flowery language because they were written for educated people, but I don’t get why we still read them and think they’re so much better than the books we write nowadays. I mean, I know the reading level is a lot lower, but that’s just a sign that we’re more advanced. We lowered the reading level because more people can read today than they could back then. We should read modern books so we understand where we are today, not books stuck in the yesteryears.

How and why did you have to travel for days!? There is no way that you didn’t have somewhere to stay. Not even a box or the underside of some shack? I’ve heard of people doing that before in order to have something over their head. It’s not the most pleasant situation, but it’s something. Or, better yet, go to one of those homes that takes in people for the night. You can’t be an adult, so they’d take you in as a kid no questions asked.

Manga? You mean those comic books from Japan? It’s okay, I guess. I like looking at the pictures, but I wish they were in color. I would read them more if they were. I mean, black and white is fine I guess, but that makes it hard to tell What I’m looking at sometimes and I have no idea what color anything is supposed to be. If you say something is supposed to be a beautiful shade of red, I was to see that red! *is angry at stuff like that because she feels like she misses certain plot points because of it*


It was true that Naomi was easier to talk to online. She was less rash when she wasn’t face to face with someone. She didn’t realize it herself, yet, but it was something.

At this point, Hyde wondered if he should tell her the truth about his origin. There were plenty of complications that  led him to be the person he is today, his happy go lucky attitude was Hyde’s own way of grasping onto hope. Even if that hope was falsified, it was still something .

“Naomi, there is something very important  that I want to tell you about myself. I feel as if we can’t really get over this hurdle that we are going through unless we attempt to be honest and open with each other, I’ve been hiding secrets that might have even sounded ridiculous if I told you initially, but you might be more keen to believe me now. The truth is.... I’m from another dimension, I didn’t originate from this one, or the alternate ones either. “ Sharaku knew, Alphonse knew, now it was time for Naomi to know. Hyde sent that first text message and  waited a while. He didn’t want to drop it all so soon, he wasn’t too sure if Naomi would want to care or believe him. However,  Hyde saw Naomi as a valuable friend and comrade,  he didn’t want to hide anything from his friends anymore.

Oh for the love of all that is holy, please tell me that doesn’t mean we have ANOTHER world to go exploring. I’m already up to my neck in problems dealing with these ones. I swear, if this means we have to save your home too, I will quit right now and move to a different country. I’m sure I won’t have to deal with this bull. You know, I just realized how much it says about my life that I believe you without needing any further convincing. What has happened to us in the last half year? I think I’m going to cry just thinking about it. Sorry, was I supposed to have a big reaction? One second. *lights the fireworks and watches them explode* Yeah… By this point, I’m not even surprised by this kind of stuff.

Obviously, Hyde’s confession wasn’t phasing her. She was too used to this alternate world mess by now to be surprised by anything it could throw at her. Not unless the portals started leaking Shadows or some other disaster. Even then, considering she thought about it, it wouldn’t really be a surprise.

Ok, so that was somewhat of a decent answer. But Hyde had more to say, and he wanted to say it.

“No this isn’t a world that we would have to explore or anything. I guess you could say that its linked up with a lot of negative times in life, mostly involving unfortunate situations or being forced to do things I really didn’t want to for the sake of survival. When it comes to that, I sometimes feel as if that my happy go lucky attitude is irritating, maybe its irritating because it’s not as genuine as I want it to be. I guess I must have watched too much science fiction movies, I honestly thought the result of the red storm was caused by me dimension hopping and causing some kind of ripple effect, or even the existence of all of this spiritual craziness that’s happening now, coming from a person who lived in a place where demons and angels were normal. I didn’t want to hide it from you; I wasn’t expecting some kind of surprised reaction or anything. I just wanted you to know about me, and who I really am…. “

It was sincere, that was the most that Hyde could do at this moment when it came to this email.

I get it. You have a past with some questionable events in it. Hate to break it to you, but I’m not a therapist and we aren’t close enough for me to attempt to spout of some something to try and help. If you’re looking for someone to help you with that, try talking to Alphonse. I’m sure he’d have some answers for you. And, just so you can get this straight, the Red Storm happened before you got involved. Thinking you’re the cause of it is comepletely egotistical of you. The world does not revolve around you. The current issue is because you decided to summon your Persona in front of a bunch of people when you had no idea what the world was like. That now I will give you. Now, stop reminding me of how much you messed up. It makes my blood boil every time I think about it.

I also just realized you mentioned angels and demons being real. Is everything I thought about the world a lie?


She may have been nicer online, but she couldn’t bury her opinions of people completely. She had a very solidly built view of Hyde at this point and it would not easily budge, especially when he kept bringing it up.

“I wasn’t trying to be egotistical, I just couldn’t stomach the idea of being a cause to any more problems that we already have. But I guess part of that is maturing and looking at them in the face, and I already said I’ll take responsibility. I just hope that you could one day you could believe in those words.”

Hyde thought about what Naomi just said about everything about the world being a lie. He wondered how he’s able to approach that in general.

“I don’t think so, but it’s good to keep an open mind that this isn’t really it, other dimensions could be a cut out of one of your favorite fantasy books. Everything you know about the world… is the current knowledge prior to what this world has accessible to you. The rules and the way things work are still the same, they still govern over this world entirely. Since persona’s are another version of you, they serve as your alternate selves in this world. A persona like your intertwined would exist as a real being in my world, and the power I have as a wild card wouldn’t be special at all. We could all have multiple demons in advanced technologies that could hold them.. Tech wise, the place I originated from might seem fascinating to you.
