    Default The Teachings

    This is modern day. People and Teachers live together rather peacefully since nowadays the people forgot about them. Or thought they were myth. There hasn't been conflict between them since ye olden times. Back then they would burn the Teachers. They were witches then, but Teachers are the politically correct term. In the olden times, the Teachers often gathered in terms of 2-5. Teachers would get apprentices, because it's difficult for the Teachers to do many things. Teachers were shifters, and they had a certain species that they shifted into in the day time. You don't normally see birds buying brussel sprouts at the local grocery. Or lemon-bat blood potion. Which they probably don't even sell at the local grocery. That's the need for apprentices.

    Teachers- They are relatively normal, except they are extremely old. Like, hundreds of years.

    Apprentices- Normal kids. They don't know Teachers even exist, so it comes as a great shock when they stumble upon Teachers doing magic. (All apprentices must be aquaintances, and be with each other when they find the Teachers)(All Teachers have known each other for decades at least)

    PLOT!~ Teachers are growing together again, reforming the Terms. They won't reveal why yet, to the apprentices, but it's gonna be good! (Characters must be evenly distributed, and I will match you together personality-wise, if you have a problem, or preference, email me and I'll be sure to match you up with whomever you choose. After we get more than four people to join I'll start pairing you up.)

    TERMS- Nik and Angel
    Ava and Avalon

    TEACHER ONLY!- What species do you shape into? (EX. Bird, dog, cat....)

    My Character
    Teacher

    Name- Nicholai Vanderpool (Nik)
    Age- 425 years
    Appearance-
    Personality- Very, very serious. He's got a good heart, though. He will crack a joke every once in a while, but is a born leader.
    Past- Born in 1586, to Gregory and Elizabeth Vanderpool in Ireland. That was when his father killed his witch of a wife and almost killed the witch child. He tried to drown the baby, but everyone knows you can only kill witches with fire. The poor baby Nik floated downstream until he was carried to a small village where he grew up and had a good life. He only figured out he was gifted when he was eighteen, the age when you stop aging as fast as others. He was going to marry the fifteen year old Allison Leeuwenhook, but had to leave her at the altar after faking death. He cut off his leg and pretended to bleed to death, after they buried him he escaped from his grave and traveled the world. After a while, he met others like him and grew to personally know them and travel with them. He soon went to North American in the nineteenth century and loved it so he stayed there until 2011. As soon as it was decided to leave again, thats when he met his apprentice...

    Apprentice
    Name- Avalon SeaCat Aerons
    Age- 16
    Appearance-
    Personality- Strong willed, determined, and stubborn. She takes things seriously and very rarely will make jokes about things. Despite her apperance she will always keep her mind focused, and hardly ever messes around. She keeps calm under tense situations, and will often lead rather then follow. But she is a kind person, and will help people if they are in need. Making her a good hearted, yet cold natured person.
    Past, up to when you stumbled into your apprentice/Teacher- Avalon was born into a less then normal family, her parents being Archeologists who often went on digs, and being raised by her older brother. Her parents decided that when they had her they would name her something exotic and unique. So they named her Avalon, since it means Island, and Islands are mostly exotic. And gave her the middle name of SeaCat, though for no apparant reason. She lived a normal life, though her parents were always pushing her towards things, urging her to be like them. This made her grow apart from them, and she became more serious, and a leader of a sorts. That was of course up until she met her teacher. . .

    Apprentice
    Name- Angel James Marlowe
    Age- 15
    Appearance-
    Personality- Not one to ever really be serious about things, he is always having a good time and laughing, and never takes things seriously. He is a bit of a skeptic, and always gets into trouble. There is nearly always a grin on his face, and he hates when people try and make him serious.
    Past, up to when you stumbled into your apprentice/Teacher- Angel grew up in a bit of a dysfunctional home, his parents were never home, and he was taken care of my his nanny. His mother was the CEO of a large shoe compony, and his father was a news anchor. He always tried to hide his usatisfied emotions by covering them up with his playful and non serious attitude. He was sad all of the time though, when he would come home, and it would only be nanny and him. This had been going on since he was very young, and now that he is older he is used to it. That was, until he met his teacher. . .

    Teacher or apprentice- Teacher
    TEACHER ONLY!- What species do you shape into? Doe, any type of female deer.
    Name- Ava Elizabeth Miranda Irene Rose McDublin
    Age- 398 years old
    Appearance-
    Personality- The mother-figure. She is caring and kind, except when she's, well, not. When she's not the perfect mother she'll be harsh and sarcastic.
    Past, up to when you stumbled into your apprentice/Teacher- She was born to Duke and Lady MacDublin, in 1613. When she was five and started doing questionable things, magical things, the parents knew that it would reflect poorly on their family, so they sent the girl to live with their traveling Uncle Freud. When Ava was fifteen she was raped by a drunk, and the town they were currently living in wanted to kill the father and bastard child. But Ava wouldn't let them take her baby boy, named William, and she ran away. When William was two and a half, he caught a rare disease that was deadly in the seventeenth century. He died, and she buried him in the local cemetery. When she went back to live with her Uncle, he was missing. She had nowhere to go, since she hasn't married. Everyone knew about the fiasco and the baby, and she was deemed unmarriable. If the Uncle hadn't left her the house, she hadn't anywhere to live. She was about eighteen, and thats the age she stopped aging as fast as everyone else. She decided to continue to travel the world, and somehow ended up meeting others like her. She went to North America in the 1900's with her good friend Nik, but moved to different states. She hasn't seen him until the week she found her apprentice....

    (Great, so when will this start up? I just need a rough estimate, considering I loose connection to internet easily, and must be able to be on my moms computer to post if that happens.)

    (I was just about to start, but anybody can join in if they want)

    Nicholas looked around the empty parking lot. It was night, and clouds blocked out the stars. It was desserted. He clapped his hands once, and a large RV fell from the sky. As soon as it was going to hit the ground, he clapped his hands again, and it was suddenly safely on the concrete. He sighed, and unlocked the door. Inside, it was neatly furnished and had many modern electronics. But that wasn't why he sat in front of the flat screen 3D TV. He whispered a simple summoning spell, and a small sack the size of his palm appeared from his room. It weighed about two pounds, and was irregularly shaped. It appeared as a lump of coal or something. But when he opened it, a huge ruby the size of a softball came out. It weighed many pounds, and it almost fell in his lap. He rubbed the top and whispered some more words. On the top of the ruby, a picture appeared. More a movie than picture, though. It showed one other person, his best friend, Ava. She was currently in Rhode Island, the complete opposite of where he was, Seattle, Washington. Nicholas waved his hand over the screen and said, "Ava! We have an emergency." The woman in the ruby jumped, and yelped. She said, "Nik! I haven't seen you in decades! But, seriously, you can't just have phoned me?" Nik rolled his eyes, and said again, "It's an emergency! You won't believe it." Ava looked worried in the ruby. After knowing him for a century and a half, she could tell when he was worried. "Where are you? I'll come right over." She whispered. She got up from her sitting position in what looked like a basement and as soon as she stepped in the morning light pouring in from a crack in the ceiling, she turned into a magnificent white-tailed doe. "Shoot! Sorry, it must wait until tonight. Which will be your morning. I hate time-differences." Nicholas put on a smile. He missed Ava. "Seattle, Washington. The old parking lot. They just tore down a hotel, so nobody's around here for miles. It's safe to practice Magic Acts, and don't worry about too much sun, because it's Seattle!" He waved bye, and the ruby-movie turned off. He slid the ruby back into it's pouch, where it took the form of a lump of something, and made it dissipate. He checked the windows of his RV once and made sure nobody was near. He snapped both his fingers and sent a searching spell for a five mile radius. It took about thirty seconds before he saw nobody was near, and sat down to watch his Blu-Ray copy of Happy Feet. How he loved those penguins.

    Ava was just sitting down, cowering in the basement. She hated Morphings. The doe she turned into was stupid, and not flattering to her personality at all. She found out that if sunlight doesn't hit you directly, it will delay the Morphing time. She settled on the floor, criss-crossed her legs indian style, and did some deep breathing. But then, a dinner bell rung. Not just any dinner bell, but a Calling bell. She jumped at the sound, turned around, and Nik was on the other end of the ruby. Apparently it was an emergency. Although she was glad to see her friend, whenever Nik said emergency, it usually meant trouble. She stood up and brushed off her bum. But she stood up too quickly, wavered in a stream of light, an Morphed into a stupid doe. She had to wait until night to see Nik, since you can't do any Magic Acts when Morphed. She sighed, laid her doe body down, and took a little nap until night.

    It wasn't like the two of them were friends, more like they hung out with each other when things got boring. Avalon was always able to liven up Angel's day, but he felt like some sort of a pest to her. He had called her that day intending to party that night, they had just cleared out a hotel, wich would serve for the best quite spot they could find that was away from adults. They were going to invite others, but unfortunantly at the last moment everyone bailed out on them. So a very frustrated Angel sat quietly with his hands in his lap, staring at the Tv. The party was not at that moment, but it was soon enough that he was getting antsy. He wandered if anyone would show up, though he wasn't too worried.

    "Are you okay Angel?" Nanny asked a bit concerned, looking over at the young boy. Angel nodded, eyes focused on the Tv where his father was currently broadcasting. He hated that man, and did not consider him a father. Where as his mother on the other hand, would always be his mother, though only because she never forgot about him like Rick O'Shea did. Thats right, Angel did not share the same last name as this arrogant and foolish man, after all, he was not going to suddenly become an O'Shea,after being a Marlowe fro so long. He sighed, crossing his arms, "Nanny, do you ever get this nagging feeling that something really bad or really good might happen?" He asled, closing his eyes for a moment.

    "No, I cant say I ever have." The older gray haired woman answered. Angel sighed, he was afraid that was what her answer would be. "Ok Nanny, I am heading for bed. Love you, Good Night." It was not unusual for Angel to tell Nanny that he loved her, in fact, Nanny was the closest to family that Angel had, therefore she was treated as such.

    Avalon had invited a few people to the party, and wandered if anyone would actually show up. Of course it could be like last time again, when it was just her and that idiotic fifteen year old called Angel. She sighed, he was not that much of a pest, but was very annoying at times. For a moment the girl hesitated, before slipping on her jacket and shoes. She exited the house and headed for Angels house. When she got there she noticed the light in his room was on, and she shoved the window open. Avalon often did this, and knew Angel wouldn't be worried about it. "Just me!" She answers as she slips into the bedroom.

    "Its almost night, are you ready to get going?" She asked in a dull tone. Rather then wait for an answer she took his arm and began to lead him away from his house. She always did that sort of thing to people. It took them a good twenty minutes to even reach the mid way point from their houses to the place they were supposed to meet, and about half way there everybody cancelled. Again. She sighed, but kept on walking, not even caring anymore.
