Beacon Academy / opening act [Open]
« Last post by Azure Blair on September 22, 2018, 12:08:30 AM »
As expected, the first thing Azure did upon arriving at Beacon Academy was to play music. Or, at least, that was her intention. She strolled through the gardens of the school, her thumbs hooked in the front pocket of her jeans as her fingers tapped a rhythm against her thighs. She basked in the warmth of the sun as she meandered carelessly down a path, a light grin on her face. The grin was caused mainly, in part, by the energy of the other students that milled about throughout the gardens. Sure, they weren’t all there for a single purpose, but there was enough that one could call them a crowd; Azure loved crowds. The overall happy atmosphere that filled the air, sickeningly sweet, thick enough to be tangible, was being lapped up by Azure’s semblance, making the wolf girl somewhat delirious. She knew she could block it out if she really wanted-- the emotions weren’t that strong, so they would be easier to ignore-- but she didn’t really want to. It was a good feeling, the smallest hint of euphoria as the energy of the crowd leaked into her.

Finding a nice, shady tree, Azure stepped off the path and crossed over to it. She slid her guitar, Renegade, from its position across her back, settling down against the base of the tree. She held her guitar in her lap, her electric blue painted fingernails-- bitten down to the quick; a bad habit she had been trying to break-- tapped against the body of the electric guitar as she thought of what to play. Unable to settle on one, she pulled out her scroll, bringing up the list she’d made of every song she could play on guitar. At least, every song that wasn’t her own. It should be a given that she could play her own songs on the guitar.

Eventually, she came across a song. She slipped her scroll back into her pocket, before adjusting her guitar on her lap. She quickly ran through the chord progression just to double check that she knew it. She frowned slightly as the progression came out wrong. She was positive that was it, she knew all these songs by heart, or at least mostly by heart, so why wasn’t it sounding right? After a second, she reached down and unclipped a capo from her belt, sliding it onto the second fret. She played the progression again; it sounded much better.

Satisfied, Azure began to play the opening to the song. As soon as the intro was up, she began to sing.

“You took my hand
You showed me how
You promised me you'd be around
Uh huh, that's right

I took your words, and I believed
In everything, you said to me
Yeah huh, that's right...” she wasn’t exactly singing quietly. Sure, she wasn’t belting out the lyrics, but she didn’t bother being all the subtle either. The punk looking girl didn’t care if anyone heard her. In fact, she was hoping people would. She personally thought music was what united people the most in the world, so she was hoping she could meet people by playing music. Her chord progression changed up as she switched to the chorus of the song.

“If someone said three years from now
You’d be long gone
I’d stand up and punch them out
‘Cause they’re all wrong
I know, better
‘Cause you said forever, and ever
Who knew...” It wasn’t an original song, but playing an original song wasn’t the point. She just wanted to play music, that was all, she didn’t care if she was the one who wrote it. It wasn’t like she was really performing at the moment. Well, she was, but not officially. Azure treated life like it was a performance: big and loud and exiting. She felt like she was always performing, but to her, that was a good thing. There was probably nothing else in the world Azure loved more than performing, so why not make the world her stage? Her life the show? If she wanted to enjoy life, she’d had to do so by doing what she loved most: performing.

“Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
Oh no
No no
I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you friend
I'd give anything...” Azure glanced around the garden as she played, happily basking in the positive emotions that such a beautiful day brought on. She was glad she had chosen the garden to play in, it gave such a positive vibe, and, for someone with a semblance like Azure’s, vibe was kind of a big deal. Her uncanny connections with crowds had always been prevalent, even before she’d really unlocked her semblance. She had always enjoyed going with her parents to the supermarket, or out to restaurants, when she was younger; she enjoyed the feel of being in the thick of a crowd.

“When someone said count your blessings now
'fore they're long gone
I guess I just didn't know how
I was all wrong
They knew better
Still you said forever
And ever
Who knew...” The chorus picked back up, Azure switching to that chord progression once more.

Oh yeah, I understand completely. I made the semblance without plans of using it much, since I know a lot of people don't like that type of stuff. Obviously I'll say like "in an attempt to cheer soandso up" or "hopefully she could ____" whenever I use my semblance, or else it would count as an auto hit lol. And there's nothing more annoying than people who auto hit.
In short, yeah I'm perfectly fine if it doesn't come up very much. I think the main way it will come up would be when a crowd's emotions leak into her, since her mood can be influenced by the energy of the crowd she's in, which could result in some amusing roleplay lmao :)
     Shiroe sighed at Reggie's flop and helped him up with his free hand. "You draw them in, I'll get some runes in place." He said, only loud enough for Reggie to hear.

     Watching his step he gingerly walked forwards and offered a quick bow, his sword tip hovering above the tip of the ice. Using snow on ice on ice would best fit the circumstance, but several others seemed suitable as well. Wind could blow snow, but the artificial blizzard was already doing that for them. Shiroe started by running towards the bridge area and prepared a rune on his sword, using the cover on the blizzard to cover his more subtle movements. Tapping wind on his blade he drew and blew a powerful gust as his blade left its sheath.

     Hoping to use the attack as distraction, and maybe ward them from using the ice bridge, Shiroe knelt on one knee and touched the ground in front of him with one hand, tracing a rune while loosing a bit of dust onto it. More ice, should they step on it it'd freeze their legs in place, at least ideally. Calling for Reggie, Shiroe shouted, "Attack!"

"Well I'll help you with that. Also, just because you're on a different team doesn't mean that you shouldn't shy away from trying to befriend new people. I can't speak for Reginald, but let's hope his teammate is friendly, that seems to be a large amount of people I meet so you'll be fine" Akel got up from her bed to help with the unpacking

"First lets get all of your books, tech and personal belongings, clothes we can worry about later today or tonight." Akel said as she moved around to her new colleague's side.

The moment Revya saw the weapon aimed at him his scythe was already positioned next to him and a trigger was pulled shattering the concrete at the end of the scythe as a blast
of concussive force from the scythe slammed into the ground and flung Revya sideways out of the path of the bullet, but no closer to his opponent. The moment he hit the ground near the
edge of the ring Revya braced the but of the scythe's grip against his chest bouncing it off and flinging it in a rapid arc around his head pivoting as he did so causing the blade to land at an
angle from which another trigger pull would throw him directly at Razzy.

Ceramite moved forward as his opponent moved back hoping to stay on her. Once again making a great heavy swing this time at her side as she scrambled up.
Can't let her get her breath. I can't let myself lose here.

Almost, once the profile has been moved out of character creation and into approved you're good.

The main concern we've had in our debates is that we cannot allow any semblance that takes control of a character out of a players hands, and this one can cross that line. I have a soft spot for bards so I would love to see it approved and I think it can be as long as you are okay with the fact that in actual threads it may not come up too much. Basically, she can't play a song that will directly cheer everyone up or depress them(basically saying oh you are all depressed now), instead it would have to be something she "tries to cheer up" or something along those lines so that control is still in the hands of the player (you could talk with the people in the thread so that they know that it doesn't force an emotion). As for PvP threads (which I'll admit I personally couldn't care less about) the semblance will probably end up doing little to nothing, with friendly fire and the extent of the effect being chosen by another person.

So the question becomes if you are okay with having a semblance that is more flavor for the character rather than something that will come up much in threads? Or you would like to go for something different.

Lilla walks over to her bed and flops down onto it while Akel is talking. When she says “his girlfriend” Lilla blinks. I... guess she refers to herself in the third person...? Huh.

”He sounds nice. I wish I had a...” she pauses, unsure of what word to use. ”...friend,” she finishes inconclusively. ”This is probably obvious, but I don’t get along well with most people. I’m probably going to get transferred again.” She sighs. The silence hangs for a few seconds, then she yawns. ”I should probably unpack or I’m going to fall asleep.” However, she makes no effort to get up.
1v1 Matches / Re: First Year 1v1 bracket- Round 1: Samantha Quartz vs. Camelia Sol

Yelping as a sudden weight pressed down on her, Samantha staggered for a moment as Camelia rolled. She was glad she'd sent one chain to ground herself, using it to avoid completely falling on her ass- and levelling a glare at the other woman from beneath the mask. That semblance was annoyingly versatile. Giving off a grunt, she attempted to steady herself on the spare chain, swinging her arm backwards in a haphazard slash up from the ground where the sword had crashed into, trying to buy some time from her off-balanced state.

The higher gravity didn't help things. At least, she thought it was, considering her opponent's previous actions - but didn't have too much time to mull it over, instead using one of the chains to forcefully yank the weapon forwards, building up a little more speed and attempting to make her opponent fall back if she could. The two spare chains were rattling as they moved, but had to be brought back around from their attack still.
