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, is underway! We also have our sideplot taking place called Junction! 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 sideplot, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Junction plot is CWIS and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Godai and Grantus.

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!

Today was a different kind of day for Gabe. The Emporium stretch always seems to have a wide arrange of things that a store wouldn't usually have. Not to say that it served as a black market, or maybe it did? If that concept was used, it was the most legal market around, and a great place to search for some forbidden books. "..." Browsing around, Gabe have hoped to obtain something that belonged to his favorite author, Bartholomew Hartley. Those books were really hard to find , but there was a rumor that it was around this area. "Book stores..book stores....." Hartley is a great author, only shrouded by conspiracy nutcases about him being in the occult. But look at Gabe, he read the books and turned out just fine.

If anyone was to see Gabe, it would be a look of frustration and impatience.

Stopping by shopping is never a time-consuming task for Brittany. She left a bit earlier from Seven Stars today to make sure she wouldn't be late for the upcoming modeling session, but she honestly felt like stopping by at the Backlight district again. It was slowly becoming one of her favorite places to hang out even though she, prior to her meeting with Jack Valentine, had little to no interest there. Formerly considered a stronghold for nerds due to Arcadia, she later would find out she had more reasons to step on there than the guys she qualified as geeks.

All in all, the Emporium Stretch seemed quite a mall filled with confusion, sounds, smells, people. Perhaps the variety is what enticed people's curiosity and fascination for the place. That said, it would not really be a surprise if the girl spotted a familiar figure among the crowd here and there, and it wouldn't be the first time. Still, the one she found roaming around was far from someone she would take as a mall person.

Gabriel. Something about him evoked a classy, polite, very educated image that hardly would be associated with the more popular backgrounds, like the Backlight District. Perhaps even the most aristocratic fellows need to do shopping now and then, no? Brittany herself didn't seem to notice his mood and looks were irritated, as she approached him slowly...gradually and silently... And should her not be noticed in her stealthy moment, she'd poke from behind his right shoulder twice to make herself noticed, but quickly move to the left shoulder direction. Brittany enjoyed these little, infantile and harmless pranks on the ones she was "close" with. "Hi! Didn't think I'd see you here of all places! Are you lost?"

The tap on the shoulder, in a just world, would have been met with a dramatic expression from Gabriel with the words , "I'm burning up" under his eyes in purple font. But since this was the real world (whats the difference anyway?), thats not what really happened. On second though, the touch on the shoulder rather frightened Gabriel, he didnt know who it was until he turned around. " Br-br-bru-iittany!!! For christ sake, could give a lad a heart attack you know?. " After touching his face, Gabe noticed that he forgot his glasses once more, for the third time. "Maybe i should invest in contacts, the act of putting anything in my eyes is rather loathsome. But..... back to your question..am i lost?"

Gabe would then look around and sigh. "Im looking for a bookstore, some would call it seedy, but its not like they sell porn. It's..... hard to explaining

While taken aback at first by his scared reaction for what was supposed be just a harmless, innocent prank, she quickly began laughing at how startled he seemed. "Ahahahaha! Aw, sowwy! I didn't mean to scare you, but you, like, should have seen the look on your face just now!" As if his comeback wasn't hilarious and amusing enough, the mere mention of "porn" made her place one hand over her mouth to restrain further laughter. "Oh, you're that kind of guy? I would never know...but I guess all boys are into this kind of thing, right? Even the quiet ones like you!"

Ahh well i could tell from the look on YOUR FACE, that the look on mine was just as priceless as you say. "Gabe would say as he chuckled and rolled his eyes. " As for being here, i could say the same for you. Is there anything around this area that would interest you even a little? Forgive me if im showing a little doubt, there are a strange batch of individuals you end up running into every now and again. "There are just some people you wouldn't want to run into in the dead of night. Gabe could definitely vouch for such a thing.

"No no! Thats not it, i was just using it as an example, books that aren't exactly illegal but some would raise an eyebrow by knowing one would have them. " Gabe sighed while he tried to explain. "Ever heard of a man named Bartholomew hartley ?

As to why she was there...hm... That was quite a good question. She was not aware of it until Gabriel highlighted the fact it wasn't like her to step on this district. "I've come to Backlight quite often lately. Twice to the gaming session with a friend, and this is the first time alone. I thought it'd be a nice change of pace for once, you know?" Perhaps it was just as Mike said, the place becoming a hangout for her habits. "Anyway, are you scared? Awww, that's so cuuute! I'll make you company for the time being, to make sure you won't run into any suspicious person, mmkay?" Between giggles, she got one step closer to Gabe, touching his shoulder kindly as a way to show her good intentions. It was quite an amusing thought that a tall, handsome and polite guy could be scared of being alone. Or at least that's how she took it. "No, never heard of him! Who's he?"

So for the second time being here, you didn't necessarily find yourself being alone. Instead, being surrounded by people who care, assuming the person you was with somewhat cares. I can only speak for myself. Does this mean you should count your blessings? If luck was a skill, you have a bright future ahead of you at this rate. " Gabe then looked forward and shifted over to the right of the strip, there was a bookstore a few ways ahead. "That must be it, and the fear of being alone? Hmm.....no... i don't think that's it. I think the bigger question is where that assessment came from, pretty interesting. " Finally, they were getting to the good stuff. " A tragic writer named Bartholomew Hartley. This man wrote a series of ten elongated novels that was highly successful before committing suicide. Rumor has it that it was even worse than "behold a pale horse" and had some sort of mental effects towards people who become engrossed in his literature One of the novels that i enjoyed most of all was called "the devil's greatest trick", which followed gambler that had a continuous game of high stakes in order to get his life back."

Gabe would then look to Brittany. "Do you think that books have that kind of power? That simply reading them would change you?

She didn't consider herself lucky to begin with. It was more like a matter of coincidence that she run into Jack and Mike the previous occasions. If it was luck, she could take it and eventually try the lottery. "Wow...this sounds quite creepy but interesting at the same time? I've never heard of him. He looks like a mystery-thriller kind of writer, right?" Perhaps one on the level of Agatha Christie or Stephen King. Not that Brittany reads a lot, as much as the activity itself could be entertaining, she enjoys some kind of truly active pastime. Like dancing. "I guess? Books are live a travel inside your mind from someone else's words, right? You can learn a lot from reading."

Hmm, well, maybe you are in luck. I'm going to pick up one of those "learning Materials, as you so called it. I hope you find something you'll like. "Gabe would say as he points to a creepy run down shack. "This is the place, coming?" If she came, Gabe would lead the way and open the door for her, letting her in first. Inside she would see a spooky man ove rhte counter and a numerous amout of shelves hosting books, some with a little dust on them.



Welcome To my Humble Abode, the name is Lester. "
the man did have a strinkingly strange appearence, but he did recogize one of the two individuals. " Ahh yes, the enthuasist, Gabriel....Whose your friend?" Gabe would nod his head awith a smile and introduce Brittany. "This is Brittany, she was nice enough to accompany me today. It's been two months, i hope you have what i'm looking for. " Lester would laugh to himself and reveal his hand. "Kek, from the occult to forbidden reads, to books that cause... "Contraversy..." I have all your little heart desires, eyer touch of sin to stir whats from within....." The man spoke oddly, maybe a little bit like Gabe, maybe not. Either way, they were free to browse.

"What do you think? Anything you like?"
Gabe would say to Brittany."

Once she entered the facility, out of Gabriel's courtesy, her eyes were like two wandering globes, checking every corner of said store, every shelf, every...everything. It transpired creepiness all over, and spooky was an understatement. In response to her first impression, she got a bit silent, analytical, even. "Hello! You can, like, call me Brit. I know Brittany sometimes is too long for people, I've heard that a lot actually. So people often prefer to use Brit instead", she smiled to the receptionist. He indeed looked a bit...unique in visual style, to say the least, but she won't judge. The moment Gabriel stepped inside and the man spoke, she slowly got closer to him, going as far as to hold his arm with one hand, almost like any couple would do. She wasn't scared per se, but the vibes all over the place and in the counter man's sentences made her slightly...wary, as wary as her carefree personality would allow. That and she was just the touchy-feely type, anyway. "Hm? Oh, no no, nothing. I'm just...watching. What kinds of books do you have here, Mister?" She had an idea but it's always better to hear the confirmation from the source.

"Spell books, tragic love stories. There is a book that is said to have turned humans into demons by reading them, and it's nothing more than magna comics and magazines, but i have those as well. What else, book about love potions. All sort of strange and rather interesting reads. I even have the brothers grimm original fairytale series. Plenty of things, take a look!" Lester was excited, a new customer that wasn't abusing like Gabe was in terms of his latent obsession about the Hartley literature he likes. " Gabe was moving side by side checking out a particular section of the room, noticing That Britt held onto him. "Oh, i thought you was the more brave one. Getting nervous?" Gabe woiuld say in a teasing tone.

"I'm not scared if that's what you're thinking, shut up!" She rolled her eyes to Gabe, before opening a smile to him, making it clear her tone was more amicable and jesting than an actual reprimand or something in those lines. As for the store attendant... Hm... Spell books were alright. She wasn't truly a fan of witchery to the point she'd buy a book to learn some sorcery. Having the option available was alright, though. As for the tragic love stories...she could buy those. Manga, comics and magazines were nothing special, she could find those everywhere. Books about love potions...eh, she wasn't truly in need of those for the time being. The fairytales, though, triggered her attention. "What do you mean by "original"? And...aren't they, like, books for kids? I dunno, this place doesn't really strike me as a place to bring a kid to buy books. Like, most of the options you listed aren't even for them to read!" In her mind, it didn't really make any sense for this type of store, more focused on occult and dark themes, to sell fairytales...

They are revised to be more children friendly. The fairy tales that you heard all your life. Though, the truth of what happened is alot more gruesome. So yes, the Disney channel has been lying to you for quite some time. " Lester would say with a silly and yet strange laugh. " Hmm..." Gabe stopped searching for a moment as he turned over to the brothers Grimm storybook. " For example, did you know the true story of the little red riding hood? The little mermaid?? The frog prince? Wouldn't you like to know what really happened?" Gabe would say as he opened the book" Op op op, you know you have to be delicate. " Gabe then brushed it off. "It'll be ok Lester, i'll get it for her if something happens by accident."

Her eyes shifted from Gabe to the man named Lester, until she frowned at them, a bit confused. And warier. "What do you mean? Everybody knows what happens in these stories. The Frog Prince, for example, he develops a friendship with a princess who pitied his disgusting appearance and, when he tells her his story, she kisses him. She breaks the spell then, and he turns into a handsome man, they marry and live happily ever after. I can tell, it's my favorite tale!" Was that something to be proud of? Hardly. If you're a grown-up woman, that is. But still, Brittany was fairly okay with boasting her knowledge in fairytales, which was why she found it weird that Lester was so excited with these "true versions of the Grimm stories".

"No...... wrong... its's right nd wrong at the same time. Though, i kind of wonder if you are determined on that verson than any other version. " Gabe looked to lester, when he shrugged as if he gave up, he started to look through the book. "Lets read it together shall we?"


The True Frog Prince Story
Spoiler:
 

After reading the story and closing the book, Gabe would sigh. "There was no kiss, she was nasty, rude, and cruel. If not for her father, the frog prince would have been alone. She got what she wanted and he was thrown away. His transformation was left with a potential concussion, no... an attempted strike of murdeous intent. Her attempt to kill that frog led to a change. IF she suceeded, maybe he would change back into a dead beautiful prince layng in her bedroom floor. What of it then?! "

Gabe...."

Lester spoke up and coughed, Gabe seemed to be losing himself and frowned after realizing it. "I'm sorry, i got a litte worked up, my apoligies..."
