((EDIT! 9/01/2013: switching.
So, I got a few responses saying that they're not sure if they can carry out the body they've revieved, or they feel that the character might be slightly boring for their tastes. So, if you want to swap to a different one, and there's enough people who want to switch about (basically any more than one) then I'll take those characters and send you a note letting you know who it will have changed to))
((EDIT! 8/01/2013: Two things:
1) NO LONGER ALLOWING ANY MORE CHARACTERS TO PARTICIPATE! IF YOU WERE TAKING PART AND DIDN'T GET A NOTE SAYING WHO YOU ARE, TELL ME!
2) Due to a LOT of things going on in the group at the moment -including Truth or Dare on a mass Scale, a treasure hunt, a certain character's death, a funeral, and a seemingly enchanted version of Old McDonald had a farm, I'm holding off doing this TOO quickly. Therefore, I'm going to wait to start this off once everything calms down a little. At the moment, it seems that everything's just going on one after the other like there's a series of epidemic's happening. So therefore, the date that this event will start will be Thursday the 17th of January. It sounds a long way away, however this animals thing will be back to normal by this Friday (11th), and then that gives us just under a week to calm down before it gets all hectic again >.< However, another major Edit to this is that I'm changing the length that we're in different bodies from three days to four days. So therefore, the spell will last from Thursday the 17th of Januaray to Sunday the 20th of January. If these dates get in the way of anything else planned, let me know. Oh, and let me clarify, this date might change if I don't think that's a long enough period time the more I think about it. Genie Baby out.))
((EDIT! 6/01/2013: You only have until tomorrow -Monday 7th January- To say that you wish to take part! Make sure that if you want to take part, and your character hasn't commented below that you do so QUICKLY!))
*In the near future, Genie sits on the ground, looking through a mysterious book full of witches spells, curiously trying out each individual one and seeing what results there are... so far, he turned a tree into a house, brought a fly back from the dead and made a rabbit fall in love with a tomato.* ...I feel like such a rebel
*He turns the page of a book, and sees the 'body changing' spell. It reads:
This spell consists of taking one's soul, brain and placing it within the body of another. The spell lasts for four days, and by the time the sun sets on the third day, each soul must be as they were and should not have adapted to the new life of their new body.Warning: Dangerous and could lead to permanent fixtures.
Well... SOUNDS FUN! Let's give it a shot...
*After reading more in the book, Genie rubs his hands together, mumbling things under his breath as black sparks and sizzles are formed from his hands. He shoots a blast up into the air, and something powerful wraps around the Earth, taking on certain people and hitting them like a ton of bricks. It, in short, is taking people's souls and swapping them around. After watching for some time, Genie is hit, and his mind goes blank.*
((CUT TO BLACK LIKE DRAMATIC MOVIE SCENE O_O))
((Okay... I gawt some explaining to do for this wicked new RP idea that I was rambling out to
Who approved, like a sir
To attempt to explain the mysterious black void that is my imagination, think about what happens in the movie 'Freaky Friday'. If I can get enough people involved, I'm going to set it up so that for four days (maybe more depending on how people feel about it) a selection of us all swap bodies. (Like when Ursula and Rapunzel swapped bodies -Only on a much BIGGER scale!) We'd all have to change our icons, ID's to be a decided different character in the group. Our personalities would be pretty much the same, but some of us would act awkward and a little different due to perhaps being a different gender, different animal, different species, yadda yadda yadda. However (this is the tricky bit) each body still has traces of whoever was in it before still laying around. (e.g. a villain's body, still have traces of evil and a need to kill a certain something or a vain character's body would still have that feel of being proud within it) The personality traits of the soul that was in the body before may begin to seep into it's new soul, ultimately trying to change them. (Gaston's body trying to change Ariel from an innocent dreamer to a flirtatious hot-head.) This is exactly what each person needs to prevent as it could lead to permanent damage and being stuck within that body. If by the fourth day, people don't act like they should, it will lead to people being stuck in a new body. Example being, if Flynn were to take on the body of the Genie. He'd feel urges to say things LOUDLY, do plenty of impressions, transformations and would be overly happy, possibly losing his grouchiness. In order to go back to being his old body, he'd need to act like his normal self so that people know that it's definitely him.
I don't know how well I've explained this, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask. INFO:
If you'd like to participate, comment below.
You need to have a lot of imagination and creativity to do this. Remember, your character will start to have urges to act like another character, so you need to think about how this other character may act, and how it will inflict your character.
Magical beings, different genders, different ages, different species, it'll all feel different to your character. Those who take on a magical being's body will perhaps not be able to control it's magic. Different Genders have different.... body parts. And different ages may make you feel a bit more fit or a bit more weak dependant on the new body. And different species' all together could lead to stumbling over yourself or having certain cravings. E.g. Carnator's body, you'd have the urge to eat people
You will be able to say if you want to join in up to the 7th of January, and I will tell you what character you'll be changing to on the 8th. However, we will start at a later date, when other RP's have finished and we have a clear space to start. I will ask certain people if they're ready to start, and when they are, I'll send out notes to everyone saying that it's time to change to your new body.
Please please PLEASE try to have fun with it. Don't spend the four days you're this new character moping. I'd like for everyone to at least show a sign of acting like this new character and trying to resist it. Only because it would be pretty hilarious. Especially for the characters that have changed gender or such
If you need help on what kind of personality traits should be seeping through, talk to the person who originally has this body. Just try to think about how they act and take that into your perspective.
Other magic and magical beings that are not participating in the body switch cannot interrupt the spell. The soul's must switch by themselves by the third day.
If you have any questions or you have any ideas for the plot line, let me know!
Don't feel obliged to join in. If it's not your cup of tea, that's fine. It's only for a bit of a laugh
Just remember to have fun when it comes round to it!!!!
I hope this is enough info. If you guys think that we should do it for longer than four days, like a week or something, let me know! I'm easy either way. I just want everyone to enjoy themselves!
Either that, or talk to me whether you think something dramatic should happen by the third day. If we don't change back to our normal bodies, how will we change back? Is there an alternative ending here? BRING ON THE EXCITEMENT BABEH'S!
