Scientists are calling it an astrological phenomenon — talk has been emerging all over the world of rapid waves of shooting stars...

- ffffzzzt -

...social media. While harmless at first, a recent group of 'meteorite' crashes have been attributed to the popular new miracle, and conspiracy theorists have taken to stirring up a storm...

- ffffzzzt -

...However, there have been no reports of injuries involved with the crashes, though there has been a great deal of property damage. The crashes seem to have all been within a 5 mile radius of one another, around the town of Millchester...

...our correspondent, Steven Richardson, is live in Millchester Police Station to tell us m-


Static.

That's how our story begins — all across the nation, across the world, just static. Static from phones, radios, televisions, and whatever other audio-producing technology that exists. Even if someone wasn't near anything of the sort, the static would swarm their senses; static in their ears, their mouth, their eyes, drowning them. The air was filled with static, choking words and blotting out letters. For one long, dragged out moment, like the dragging of nails across a freshly cleaned chalkboard, the world was united by static.

However, just as quickly and suddenly as it had happened, it was over. The static got louder and louder, growing and growing, until everyone in the world slipped into a coma, all at once. Everyone, of course, except the 'heroes' of our fair tale. Fate had played its hand, bestowing immunity upon a group of people in the quaint town of Millchester, for reasons they would much rather not know. It was these people who were left standing after the static had gone, slipping back into the cracks of the ground and the walls like a liquid poison that ran through our Earth.

"Hell exists, and it exists above us!". That's what the local crazy had always preached, holding up his scrap of cardboard that depicted Satan upon a throne in the clouds. No matter what religion they followed, everyone else in the town unanimously agreed that he was delusional, and never paid him much attention. Soon enough, those of them still left conscious will lament their choice — Hell very much exists, within and above all of us. Alas, the stars are falling, and with them come the poison within our souls that we refuse to acknowledge; the monsters we hide away from the people around us. Our flaws, our weaknesses, and our darkness.

It's time to face your inner demons.

@OppositionJ @William Cade @Girlie1Bomba @griefbacon @Syn @Fabricant451

Just a note to say that I'm still here and I haven't abandoned this project. I have an upcoming major surgery (a splenectomy, which is the surgical procedure of removing the spleen) that was supposed to be on March 22nd, but instead has been pushed forward to next Tuesday, February the 17th. While I've never been more excited in my life to be cut open and have one of my organs taken, the hospital where the surgery's taking place is an hour-long train ride away (it's in a different city entirely), so if we (my mum has to come along since I'm still a minor) forget to bring anything along we can't exactly go back and pick it up from home. This means we've been making preparations and making sure we have everything for the hospital, which is, understandably, interfering with the amount of time I have to work on the OOC and such. If you guys want, I can give you the character skeleton (which is completed, since I like coding things before I actually start work on content) — just say the word and I'll post it here. It's better than sitting around twiddling your thumbs while my real life shit goes on.

As for how long I'll be in the hospital, I'm not entirely sure. The nurse predicts 4 days, but it could be a little longer since I have wonky blood conditions, which is why I'm having the surgery in the first place. I also have to take into account the fact that even when I get home, I won't be able to sit at the computer while I recover, but I don't even know how long recovery will be. It's different for each person, and all that jazz.

EDIT: It's been pushed back to March 22nd again, how sarcastically exciting. I'll see if I can muster up inspiration but today has just been a really shitty day.

EDIT EDIT: It's been rescheduled to this Saturday (March 3 rd with the sole intent of having a low chance of cancellation. I'm really hoping it doesn't get cancelled, but only time will tell. As expected, I will be gone for a while.

Apologies for the doublepost, but here's the character sheet. View it in raw to get the coding, since code tags still don't work with hr tags and URL tags. Delete these sentences at the start, obviously.

Thanks. The reschedule has gotten me a little depressed, but I'm gonna try to muster the willpower to do something other than sit in bed all day and play videogames soon. My mind just keeps reminding me I could've been spleen-free and recovering by now, so I get kinda pissed off and bummed at the same time.
