I will go down with this ship....


The year is 1912, and your character has just boarded the finest and most majestic ship ever built, the RMS Gargantuan. Whether they're First Class, Second Class, or too broke and have to go Steerage, they've all boarded by the midnight on the 14th, and the cruise is well underway! It's a little early in the year to cross the Atlantic, but this ship is unsinkable, and the Captain is positive everything will be fine.

However, at 11:40pm on the 14th, an iceberg will be spotted by the trusty lookout, and just after midnight on the 15th, the ship will hit it. Lifeboat room is hard to come by, so women and children first! At 2:20am, the ship will reach its watery doom, sinking to the bottom of the sea!

~If your character is onboard, they will be cursed to think it's actually 1912 and they are passengers, so feel free to use this post to arrange who your character is! Are they first class or third? Are they a worker aboard? Maybe they're a stowaway! (Please note that your character can't be the Captain or the First Mate as those are NPCs!)

~If your character is of the supernatural variety, they're welcome to remain so, but they may want to keep their powers/abilities hidden, after all, this is 1912 Earth! If your character is not humanoid, they will become so for this curse (or an animal, if your character is more animal than human!) but revert to their usual selves on the 16th!

~Your character cannot leave the ship until it begins to sink, and how they leave then is up to you! Maybe they get on a lifeboat or maybe they don't, but there's no going overboard until the iceberg gets hit!

~If your character is uncursed and on shore, they won't be able to see the ship from the beaches! A foggy mist has risen and has made the ship hide from view. However your characters will still be able to communicate via Network devices!

~If your character should manage to get on a lifeboat, they will dock on the beach at midnight on the 16th. If your character should go to the bottom of the briny deep, they'll return to the City on midnight, unhurt and exempt from City Death!

~For the duration of this curse, the uncursed back on shore can notice a couple of things: first off, that the weather is a little colder than usual! The sharp-eyed will also notice that the slide in the Playground will be missing! Wherever did it go?

So let us know your questions and get to plotting!

For old money like the Andersons, sending their son abroad for university is almost expected; the Perrys wouldn't have been able to afford it if Neil wasn't on a scholarship. If not for Todd's insistence that he stay near his friend, he'd have a first class ticket-- as it is their cabins are across from one another. Strangely, one of them is always empty.

One way or another I think they're going to survive this, whether by making it onto a lifeboat or huddling on a lucky patch of flotsam til midnight.

We are looking for a friendly stowaway who would like to upgrade to a second-class cabin on the condition of keeping a very big secret. Other than that, open to basically anything~ pre-existing relationships, on-board plotting, whatevs. <3

I'm planning on having Jack here be a stowaway, if you still need someone for that!

Sure, totally doable~ as long as he doesn't tell anyone they're bunking together ;3

maybe he stumbles on them making out talking about their plans to run away together once they reach port? Orrrr they could just make friends somewhere along the way orrr... I'm open to anything really~

Absolutely! Jack has some secrets of his own, so there's no way he'd go around spilling others', haha. I also think it'd be more likely for him to stumble upon making out whatever you decide on :D

laaate reply is late sob, I'm sorry! <3

i think the easiest way to do things iiis... I don't know whether Rae or I will be posting (or who'll post first, if both of us do! ^^) buuuut we figured, we'll start a thread with them chatting about their secret plans and possibly making out and then link it to you so Jack can stumble in? >3
