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! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

Athena added the final details of her make up while staring at her reflection on her vanity. The girl, or rather the young woman now, was pleased with her looks. Even when she was younger she was always a pretty child but now that her body had reached it's full development she was gorgeous. "With a face like that there's no way I'm going to fail." She said to her reflection before she blew a kiss to the mirror, since the new government had been established Athena was determinate to rise within it, one way or another. Problem was she haven't found the right chance yet. "There is always room for the beautiful, no need to worry." She added as she clad her trusty green jacket over the school uniform before she left her house.




Athena Griva, Present

She had only made a few steps when she saw a familiar figure exiting the house opposite of hers. "Morning Gabe" She said as she waved to the older boy "Here I thought I was the only one who was heading to school this late." Athena had no strong opinions about him, they went to the same school and lived close to each other but she wouldn't call him her friend still he seemed like a nice guy.

First day as a third year, Gabe wondered what this year had in store for him. “Well, I guess I’m ready as I’ll ever be…..” Two years into this academy and Gabe honestly thought that it’ll be anything different. Sadly enough, it wasn’t. After looking at a family picture of Gabe and his parents, he sighed and left the house. “I’m off….” Closing the door, Gabe would walk out with a pair of headphones on. He was listening to some jazz music, which is just about the only music that he prefers to listen to in his spare time.

Walking out of the house and walking down the street, Gabe would notice a girl giving somewhat of a gesture to him. “hmm?” Gabe would take out his headphones and flip open a small book, writing down something with a pen. “ Good morning miss Griva , you seemed to be in high spirits today. I think it’s the first time that I haven’t seen an admire at your doorstep to escort you himself. “ That girl did live a pretty interesting life.

"Well..." Athena replied as a sly smile formed on her lips. ”I have to keep them yearning for more if I want to remain at the top, don't I? Plus it seems that I've managed to find myself another escort for today." With that she moved closer to Gabe, perhaps a bit too close for Endymion's standards. "The school isn't that far away but still the road can be tiresome if you don't have something to kill your time and I'm certain I can be more interesting than your headphones, no?" Athena winked at him. "And who knows, we might make a habit of walking to school together, for all we know we could be classmates this year." Athena wasn't sure if Gabe was a diligent student or not but it never hurt to have strong connections with her classmates, she managed to ace her last's years exams thanks to the notes she received as a gift from the "nerdy" kid of her class, in exchange they went on an awkward date to an arcade.

Gabe removed his headphones, he figured that it would be rude if he kept them on any further. There is a time and place for everything, it'll just be another time for him to listen and unwind to jazz music. "I see, so you would like me to accompany you to the school, yes? Alright, i don't have any problem with that. " Why would he? They lived next door to each other, the least Gabe could do is be cordial. " Classmates? This is indeed my third year at the academy, i should be finished with my studies after graduation. But now that i bring it up, it poses an interesting question. "Gabe would say as he looked to Athena. "What are you planning on doing after you graduate? I'd figure you would start your own modeling agency in the end.

Gabe's question was interesting. Athena was a person who had a plan for everything and due to her ambitious nature she often fancied herself on the top of the social pyramid. Still sharing those dreams seemed a bit over the top, even for her, and thus when someone asked her about her future she would use one of her other "possible plans" as a reply. "Well being a model is just my stepping stone." She said cheerfully "If I continue working hard then I'm bound to be offered a role in a TV series, after that I'll polish my acting skills and become a famous actress. Wouldn't that be fabulous?" She didn't loathe the ideal of becoming a celebrity, after all famous people always wielded influence among the people and many of them took an interest in politics once their career reached it's peak. "What about you? I imagine you're not planning to stick on your current profession forever."

"If you continue working hard? It's actually funny you say that..." Gabe would mutter to Athena as he walks besides her with his hand in his pocket. " Since when does hard work reflect on what you want for the future. People usually get ahead by association. If one worker bee tries their hardest, will that get him noticed or promoted over others? There is so much happening in the world, it'll take just one bad day for someone to be irrelevant all over again." Gabe was actually quite stern, but he kept his smile. "Though, i seen your pictures, people try to imitate you alot for you not to be in the public spotlight. You'll be alright." As they continued to walk, Gabe decided to answer her question with another question. "Oh, lets play a game then. You hardly know me, even though were neighbors. Tell me, using your good judge of character, what exactly do you think my profession is? Can you guess?"

"Oh my, such a playful lad." She commented, she liked games of wit and since she hadn't spend much time with Gabe it could be nice test of her skills, after all she would have to judge others quickly if she wanted to climb the social ladder. "Let's see..." the girl said as she rested her chin on her arm while staring at the young man for several seconds, she tried to recall how he looked like a few years before and if he had any habits that separated from others.

"You look more refreshed than before even though school just started meaning that your daily routine was rougher. You also seem to like doing tricks with that deck of yours, my brother was pretty fascinated when he saw you performing one and since he's not easy to impress I can only imagine you must be very good at those tricks. One might even call you a pro." A picture began forming on Athena's mind about his identity. "You also have a good sense of style, and I remember seeing you leaving your home at night dressed in a very classy manner." At that point she could almost feel the gears of her mind working fiercely, she knew she was close to her answer but did she had all the clues ,and more importantly, did she remember all these information correctly? Nevertheless she had to risk it.

"Classy style, rough schedule, good with tricks involving playing cards, and looking slightly older than your actual age... I guess your job is somehow related with entertainment. A magician perhaps?" At that point Athena bit her lip to stop herself realizing she made an error. If Gabe was working as a magician then he would perform a variety of tricks not just card ones. There was only one place where quick hands and misdirection were that useful expect a stage. "or a dealer at a casino?" It would make sense for a casino to hire a man who knew what tricks one could pull with a deck, after all it takes a cheater to get one.

Gabe wondered what she would come up with, but he wasn’t expecting her to be spot on in the slightest. It’s not like he lived his life in mystery, Gabe was seen from time to time in the park, performing tricks for people in order to keep their spirits up. He never asked for a lot of money, maybe two dollars. However, it was only a dollar increase of his one dollar from a year ago. When it came to the tricks with his cards, it was either for free, or a little donation. Money was never the point.” Gabe started to clap a little bit, a bit surprised that she guessed so skillfully. “Impressive, It’s safe to say that you manage to get both of my professions. My hobby as a magician, and my work at the casino “lucky clover”. Have you ever been there before?”

Regardless of whenever she’s been there or not, Gabe was pretty much amused that she guessed his life effortlessly. “ Well… it’s been a while since I did this… how about I tell your fortune for good measure today?” Gabe took out his deck of cards and shuffled them skillfully before shifting the deck over to Athena.” The top card will represent your fortune for the day, no need to take it seriously, it’s just a little game. He wondered what she would get.

Athena almost puffed up with pride when Gabe applauded her for her perception, it was a sign she had finally polished her skills enough to guess correctly important information about others by studying a few details. "In my line of work it's important to study people, many want to take advantage of young people who aspire to join the show business and since models are consider to be stupid by the majority we have to be extra vigilant for charlatans." She explained. The boy continued by providing some information about his workplace. "Can't say I have. My dad is a police officer and he's not looking kindly upon gambling. I think his own grandfather lost most of his family fortune by gambling it to various casinos back in Greece so he wants my brother and I to remain clear of places like that." She said as she scratched the back of her head, deep inside her she felt annoyed that her dad didn't trust her to be reasonable with her money.

The game Gabe suggested was a nice change of topic and Athena was willing to give it a go. "I don't really believe in fortune telling but it's always fun to mess around with things like that." She paused for a moment before picking the top card from Gabe's deck. "Let's see what Lady Luck has in store for me."

"Heh, i'm just amazed that  you have been watching me so intently, with this being the first actual conversation that we ever had. " Wow, what else does this girl know about him? It kind of made Gabe wonder what her deal was? "I see, your father is in law enforcement. It makes sense a little more if you ended up picking up one of his qualities." Maybe it was a little uncomfortable if there was a girl with super sleuthing skills that lived across from you, noting every move you make during her times of boredom.

"Good, you should take his advice. I those kinds of places,  you have to sort of "belong there". You'll never know if you do if you don't walk in first. But i guess that's how the addiction grabs hold of you. " After she picked her card, Gabe took a look at it. " Ahh.... how ironic indeed... we were just talking about your probable suitors..." Gabe put the deck away and waved the card back and forth. "The two of spades...Breaks in relationships; deceit. A break in an important process in the querent's life. If the question concerns a particular romantic interest, this is considered a warning card - infidelity or separation is quite likely." Gabe would then smile and put the card away. "But you have nothing to worry about right? I think the game ends once you settle down, so maybe this doesn't concern you. As i was saying before, its just a game. Tough...i wonder where it leads for you? " Who knew what she would take from it?

"It's not as hard as it sounds. People are usually careless and reveal a lot about their personal lives without even realizing. Once you realize that reading people becomes a piece of cake." Athena explained, she knew that she was more perceptive than the average person but it was a skill she had to work on, surely Gabe must have had similar experiences as a dealer.

Athena studied the card she had picked. "Rather ominous don't you think?" She joked, she didn't believe the card Gabe had pulled held any meaning, after all it was just a piece of paper it couldn't possibly dictate her fate. On the other hand the line between natural and supernatural has been crossed numerous times during the past five years, perhaps she should keep an open mind about it. "I can't think of anyone who might try to deceit me... still even if fortune telling is a trick it's always a good advice to be careful who to trust." Athena run her fingers through her long thick hair to clear her line of vision. "You never really replied to my question though. What are your plans for the future? It is our last year at school after all."

So they say.." Was it ever really easy? Who knows? Gabe felt like a special kind of person would be able to successfully pull off things like that. it wasn't the best of traits for social interactions, "I've been watching you" isn't much of a killer conversation starter. "As i was saying before, it's just a game. Though, i like to see how people react to it. They seem more eager from positive readings, wanting them to happen more than something negative turning up. It's natural right, but i wonder if that would be making a hypocrite of myself if i wasn't readily accepting of everything i get? Good or bad.... who knows.."

Gabe would finally shrug. " I don't know actually. i do have a secret that i'm working on, maybe i'll tell you some other time. But that does have something to do with a career. But i would like to keep it under wraps for the time being. Keeps you guessing..

"Oh I see." Athena replied as she lowered her head, many students weren't sure what they would do once they finish their studies, she was among the lucky few who had found a way to do what they wanted from a young age. "You need not to worry. You have plenty of time to think about your future during the year. As long as you find something that makes you happy you're going to be fine." As it turned out Gabe was a pretty nice guy, Athena wondered why she didn't try to approach him before, she made a mental note to correct that mistake.

"Ah here we are." She said as the school's gate appeared on the horizon. "It was lovely walking with you. You should totally invite me again some time." Athena added before she winked at Gabe.
