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!

"...Thanks for being you... You're the most important person in my life... You brought me hope and happiness in these dark times..."

Those were the last words Mae spoke before she fell into a deep slumber, watched over by her boyfriend. Her body had been pushed to the absolute limit, and she needed some time to recover... Her sleep was rather peaceful, resting there on the bed, with her chest moving up and down in sync with her breath. Everything slowly faded away as her dreams started coming to life.

"Moom! I'm going out with Davis for a little while! That's okay, right?" Mae opened her eyes, lying lazily on the couch in a rather spacious livingroom. The voice that had clearly addressed her, was what caused her to open up her eyes so quickly. She slowly rose up from her restingspot, rubbing her eyes tiredly before replying, letting her eyes scan the environment around her. "Alriiight! Stay safe okay? And don't be out for too long!" Oh, yeah... Kayle was going out on a date with a young man called Davis Bannen, one of her class mates, as Mae recalled. She hadn't actually met the guy yet, so she could only go by Kayle's word on him actually being a nice guy.

The door slammed shut downstairs, leaving Mae alone once again. Charles was on duty still with Jack Rannells, and they would be at it for quite some time. The livingroom itself wasn't all that interesting, being actually very featureless, given that this was indeed a dream. But a few things stayed constant. The Ranger Mask hanging on the wall, and a couple of photographs, along with an actual mirror, were the only things that remained un-obscured. Mae moved over to one picture in paticular, that she remembered very well. The picture depicted Mae and her beloved Charles standing outside the Orphanage with a 13 year old Kayle Graves standing between the two. Looking at it now, it felt like such a long time ago... Azores had been saved twice over by it's protectors, along with the parallel worlds of Penecia.

Her eyes would then wander over to yet another picture... Her first trip with Charles outside of Azores. They had gone to the Maldives for 5 weeks straight, and this paticular moment had been captured on a beach, Charles being the one taking the picture. It depicted Mae in a swimsuit looking out over the sunset at the beach. Who knew he was such a good photographer? Then again, he was a robot. There was no skill that he couldn't get with a program. Her hair had been tied up into a single, long ponytail. Now, her hair was much shorter, giving the 27 year old woman a more mature and distinguished look. Charles wasn't too fond of it, but Mae had reassured him that she would grow her hair back eventually. The android had always been fond of her hair, for some reason, and she didn't want to look like an eyesore to him for too terribly long...

The world around Mae would slowly fade out, everything else around her turning completely black... that was, until she found herself sitting in a very familiar classroom... She sat in the middle of the class, observing a group of teens talking about something. A Girl which Mae recognized as herself grew more and more irritated by the words spoken by her classmates. The group in question consisted of 4 girls and one lone guy.

"Have you heard, guys?" The boy asked the others in the group, immediately catching their attention. The girl with the buns was the first one to speak up. "You mean, about that freshman?" The boy nodded excitedly. "Yes, yes! Is it true that it happened and that the culprit is the guy from our class?" And the group kept up with their gossip until their eyes turned to look at the guy sitting in the back, their facial expressions showing disgust. Mae remembered this scene... So much so that she could even tell what Mae would say next.

"Hey! What's with that look?!"

The younger Mae rose from her seat quickly, glaring angrily at the group of teens. The present Mae felt the same way still. Talking shit about other people really grinded her gears.

"Don't you have anything better to do than talking shit about a fellow classmate!? Especially when he's sitting RIGHT THERE!"

The younger Mae pointed towards Charles sitting in the back of the classroom. It was abundantly clear that she had enough listening to their gossip, and as if that wasn't enough, the guy they were talking about was sitting right in that same classroom. Of course, back then, Mae didn't know that he was a robot, which is also why she couldn't really understand why Charles never fought back... But now she did. Back then, what would he care about what others thought of him? He was a robot, a tool to be used by mankind. Or at least, that's what the general majority would have you believe. Mae however, didn't care much if he was a robot or not. A friend was a friend, no matter who or what it was. And he would turn out to become more than just a friend to her later on...

"If you wanna talk trash about someone, at least do it where they can't hear you! Geez, you guys are so immature!"

The young girl took a deep breath in a vain attempt to cool down a bit. The only responses she got were...

"Sheesh, what's up her butt?"

"Leave her be if she wants to have it her way."

"Just don't run back to us if anything happens, hihi. Only an idiot would go hang around that guy. Hahaha."

"U-uhm, yes..."


the younger Mae grabbed a chair,  pulled it closer to where Charles was, and sat down, before turning back to the group, replying furiously as the group of teens left them alone.

"Just mind your own buisness!"

Now, Mae kind of understood why he had been so calm about the situation, in the light that he was very robotic at the time. The now, very human Charles (at least demeanour wise) would probably not have taken things that well...

"Ehh... Sorry about that. I have no patience when it comes to people like those. Anyway, I'm Mae Iharu, your new classmate. Nice to meet ya!"

That warm, welcoming smile looked so... odd. Mae wasn't used to seeing it herself. It really was weird watching a younger version of herself smiling like that.

"And you are?"

Charles looked up when he was addressed, and only replied coldly, even ignoring the question Mae had asked him. Geez... was he really that not-talkative back then? He had changed so much since then... Three years was a long time.

"They weren't a nuisance."

Then they started talking about what had happened. Charles being suspended and all that. Mae had of course tried to help him fight it, as she thought it wasn't fair of them to suspend him for something he did not do... Sure, it was only a temporary suspension, but still, it didn't make it more fair. Charles would then storm out the room, leaving Mae confused behind...

Once the door closed, the scene shifted to that of outside Charles' old apartment, the current time Mae looking down from the top of the staircase towards where the past Mae stood, waiting patiently for someone to open the door. The current Mae of course knew that the current tenant was out at present, so she just watched with interest what transpired. The tenant in question popped up not much later, startling the poor girl.

"Geez, don't startle me like that!"

The young pinkette cried out, puffing up her cheeks in slight annoyance at Charles.

"Were you looking for me?"

"Yeah, I was, actually. I just wanted to see how you were doing... The way you left had me worried for the last two days, silly!"

Seeing the two talk like this brought a smile to the older Mae's face. She followed them inside, where Charles gave Mae a gift... Upon seeing the small trinket, the older Mae looked at her own pin... "You really liked me back then... didn't you, Charles?" It was one of her most prized possessions. Not because it was expensive or anything... it's value was more sentimental than that. Even now, a day wouldn't go by without her wearing this pin. Having it with her brought her strength. With it in her possession, he was always with her, no matter where she found herself. Even though he was a machine, he still had a human heart, and emotions like one as well... And while that was good enough on it's own for Mae... was it good enough for Charles? She remembered him telling her that he felt inadequate, and that he was only going to hold her back. From doing what? Having kids? She could always adopt (which was something she would be doing anyways.) Sure, he wasn't the best kisser on the planet, but he was learning. With time, he'd be better at that... Which wasn't to say that Mae was that great at it either. Sure, she had more experience than Charles did, but not by a very large margin. And Mae knew that there was more to a relationship than just intimacy. It was about sharing a life with someone else. Supporting eachother in times of strife, and sharing happiness with eachother when things got better. In many ways, it was like a friendship, but on a much deeper level. Sure, their relationship was still rather young, but as a friend, Mae would already go to great lengths to protect him.

The Scene shifted once more, this time outside the school gates... Charles and Mae were sitting on a bench, talking about something. Her old caretaker was briefly mentioned, and Charles brought up the issue of a friend's death... Mae to this day didn't know who that person was, but this moment right here was a very pivotal one in their relationship. It was here that they went from Aquaintences to actual friends. Not all that close, but still, it was a friendship nontheless.

"Sorry... I've been lying to you from the start... I-I'm not human and I will never be human... So how can you be so sure I am not a murderer?"

The android spoke, as he embraced the younger Mae tightly, hiding his face in her pink hair. She responded calmly, not letting the sudden embrace get to her.

"There's no need to be sorry, Charles. I understand why you didn't want me to know."

Indeed. Telling someone this was not a small ordeal. How he admitted this to her so soon, she'd never know, but Mae was grateful for his honesty. The fact that he wasn't human didn't matter.

"Don't... hate me..."

"Oh, Charles... Why would I hate you...? You're my friend... One that's very dear to me..."

The scene would again fade... What was her dreams trying to tell her...?
