there's no place to escape from this rusty chain;
the more you fight the ticking of the clock's hand, the harder the struggle gets.
○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
It had been a treacherous few months. She was tired and had a pounding headache. But she couldn't sleep - not yet. Not when she was so damn close. It was only a few more steps, she told herself. Another three blocks, and she would be back at Midnight Magazine. Her tense shoulders relaxed just a little when she realized this, and a small smile made its way onto her lips. Just a little bit more and she would feel completely and totally accomplished.

"Don't give up," she cheered to herself, giving a pointed glare towards her sluggishly moving feet. "We just have to get to the office, then you can rest. I promise." Jeez. Talking to body parts. If Gemma could see her now! The blonde would probably sigh or facepalm - or both - and tell Rena that her feet couldn't hear her, nor could her hands, or her nose, or any other bodily appendage. Of course, Rena knew that perfectly well, but she felt like it needed to be said out loud to keep her pace. After all, she could practically smell the newspaper ink now.

Miss Faires had not been seen in nearly two months. The last time anyone had a glimpse of her was during the Christmas Party for Midnight Magazine employees. No, wait. That wasn't technically the last, (although the last anyone from her group of friends and co-workers saw her). The very last time anyone saw anything of Rena was when she said goodnight to Gemma the night before she snuck out of their shared apartment. She left a very long and detailed note about where she was going, ("I don't know where I'll be exactly. Hopefully somewhere warm. Like Hawaii! Wouldn't that be fun? Journalism in Hawaii! Maybe I'll learn to surf! Don't worry, I'll come back and teach you, too, Gemma! We can be surfing buddies!") and how long she'd be away, ("I could be gone for just a week or two, but if this takes longer, I'll make sure to call you! If I'm not back by your birthday, I'll make sure to send a present! And if I miss Fourth of July with you this year, I'll go find some fireworks to shoot towards the sky in town! They'll spell out 'Happy 4th, Gemma!~'. Then everyone will be envious 'cause you'll have fireworks dedicated to yourself! Won't that be awesome? I don't think I'll still be gone by Christmas, but you'll have to send me a list of stuff you want so I can get something for you! Maybe a souvenir snow globe? One from Hawaii, with a beach snowman!") on the fridge, her friend's favourite place in the entire house, so that Gemma wouldn't worry about her all that much. As much as she wanted to say good-bye in person, the Asian-decent knew very well that her friend wouldn't allow her to spend god-knew-how-long out on her own, looking for god-knows-what -- of which, had a very real possibility of being dangerous. Rena was, in every sense of the phrase, lacking common sense when it came to every day things, so how she had managed to stay alive during her bout of investigative journalism baffled even herself... She hadn't gotten murdered by some angry cult leader or beaten up by a scary-looking crook. Shockingly, she hadn't gotten hit by a car when she ran into the streets without looking, either, (on multiple occasions, mind you. Luck must've been on her side! Like any good two year old, she understood that looking both ways was a must, but when she got distracted by a new lead - or perhaps a shiny piece of paper on the other side of the road - she tended to forget the rules that had been pounded into her brain since birth). But the kicker out of the entire adventure, if one could even call it that, was that she had even gotten out of Carpe Noctum without someone catching and (or) dragging her back home. In fact, after she was out of city limits, the werewolf had been very proud of herself. She set out on her journey, head held high and ego inflated, to find answers to the current issues in town - nothing but a tape recorder, a note pad, and a tiny list of sources in her bag. Oh, and an extra set of underwear.

Rena began sniffing around locally, (forgive the pun) for information. Like any good reporter, (really, it was the only thing she was especially talented in. She took the job very seriously and strove for excellence with every story) she asked questions that were direct enough not to be misinterpreted, but vague enough that no one would know exactly what she was up to. Her first lead turned out to be a dud, which she had sort of expected but was thoroughly disappointed in nonetheless. She expanded her radius a little further and asked a new round of people - humans, werewolves, and vampires alike - if they knew anything about anything. When that turned up with squat, she began to panic. Was this investigation over before it started? Frantically, she came up with a new set of questions to ask nearly everyone she came in contact with that could've provided some sort of information. Further and further away from the city she traveled, looking for something. Her strong legs, the only means of transportation she owned, brought her from town to town and eventually, state to state.

Thankfully the timber wolf had a thick, warm fur coat to insulate her at night, (and had remembered a set of hats, gloves, and a scarf to shield her when she was in human form) since her trail brought her all the way North to the harsh Illinois winter. It was the middle of January by the time she arrived in the big city of Chicago. The place was seriously the largest town Rena had ever been in, and it took a few days to adjust to the constant traffic and loud noises, (naturally, with this sort of story, she was a touch jumpy and all the people around didn't help that). What took her no time flat, though, was the realization that there was a large pack of werewolves that ran the southern part of the city and a large group of vampires that ran the northern half. While she had originally planned to find someone to take her to the Alphas of the city so she could ask permission to be there, Rena very nearly turned around and ran the hell out of there after being in city limits for only a few hours.

"Well, well, well. I thought I smelled a lost little mutt." A voice taunted from behind her crouched form. Rena had been scribbling down a few notes on the side of the street, but the familiar tone made her whip around and give out a horrified gasp.

"Kaguya! What are you doing here?"

"I could ask you the same question. I thought I got rid of you in that pathetic excuse for a town last year."

Kaguya Fuurde was her older sister and a royal bitch. The two of them never got along, but Kaguya became particularly nasty towards Rena after they were both turned into werewolves, (that accident being the younger sister's fault).

"Don't worry, I'm not staying. Especially if you're ugly face is going to be here!" She stood and jabbed a finger at her sister, until Kaguya whacked the hand away. Two other wolves, a blonde woman and a dark haired male appeared behind the taller sister. The tension rose and since they were on the street, a few concerned citizens stopped to ask what was wrong. Kaguya sneered and the two other wolves "gently coaxed" the humans to continue on their way.

"I suggest you get out before the night is over, little sis. I don't what you stinking up Chicago."

Then they were gone, and she was shaken, but she wasn't about to let her sister win. So she stayed.

The Alphas were on top of things here, it seemed; it turns out that they were immediately aware of her presence in the city, (Rena guessed that's why Kaguya was able to find her so quickly). They sent two brothers to pick her up, (well, technically one, but the other tagged along, being curious and all) the day after she arrived. Rena had been taking a light nap at the enterance to an alleyway - the only place she could sit or lay down without getting stepped on - when they found her. She hadn't showered since she scraped together her money to rent a motel room a few weeks ago and there were obvious signs of her trek since then; dirt was smudged on her face and her hair was frizzy, having not been brushed in a while. The few outfits she had stuck in her bag were all worn and some pieces were torn. To any passerby-er, it probably looked like she was recently homeless, or something to that effect.

"Dude, you think she's dead?"

"How should I know? She doesn't smell dead."

"Go poke her."

"No way, dude! You're the one that's supposed to bring her to Will and Merry!"

"Dude, you're such a baby!"

"Dude, am not!"

"Then go see if she wakes up!"

Their bickering had successfully awoken Rena; she groaned and flipped over, whining, "So looooooud!" The two brothers exchanged looks while the girl rubbed the sleepiness from her eyes and sat up. It took her a moment before coming to the conclusion that one of the pair was higher ranking than she was, and the other was about the equivalent of a Free Wolf. She scrambled to her feet and gave an awkward curtsy, (why a curtsy, she wasn't sure. It was just the first thing that came to her mind).

"Woah, woah, woah. What're you doing?"

"U-Uh, I'm Rena!" she explained, her head down and face flushed. Again the brother's exchanged looks, and the younger pushed the older more towards their new acquaintance. The darker haired brother glared over his shoulder, but then motioned for Rena to relax.

"Right. Nice to meet you, Rena. I'm Allen, and this douche is Chris." He jerked his thumb over his shoulder to the brother, who waved cheerfully at her. All three wolves paused to give each other the once-over, (or rather, Allen and Chris to Rena, and Rena to the brothers; they didn't need to check each other out. Gross). Rena wasn't surprised to see both of them towered over her significantly -- they were both easily around six feet, if not more. The two brothers were also clearly of Eastern decent, like herself, and had a unique, (but flippin' great) sense of style. Needless to say, she was a little intimidated. "We're here to take you to the King and Queen."

Scratch that. The brothers didn't intimidate her. Kings and Queens did.

"W-What? Chicago has a King and Queen? And they want to see me?" She bit her lip, concerned about what was going to happen to her. Was she trespassing on holy land? Was she going to get punished? Tortured? Beheaded!?

Allen gave her an incredulous look, as if he had read her mind. "Uh, yeah. King and Queen - you know, 'Alphas' and whatever. They want to make sure you're not here to cause trouble." Oh, well. That made more sense!

"Oh! Okay! That's really helpful, 'cause I didn't even know where to begin to look for them! I was afraid they'd be mad if I didn't come say hi, or anything."

The two brothers laughed, and Chris shook his head. Allen waved a hand towards Rena's bag and gave her a large smile. "Okay, well, grab your stuff and you can go say 'hi' in person."

"And you thought she was dead."

"Dude, shut up!"

And so, Rena was lead through the city by the two stylish dudes known as Chris and Allen Hyun. They were really funny, she decided quickly, and she liked them both a lot. They sort of reminded her of more wound-up versions of Alex and Brody, (the thought of her good friends made her a little homesick, but she pressed on). They told her a little about themselves; that Chris was fifty-eight and Allen was sixty. They had both been turned at the same time and had been living in Chicago for a while now. Allen was what they called an "Ace Werewolf", which was like being a Beta back in Carpe Noctum. Chris was a Libera Wolf, which was like being a Free or Gamma wolf. When she asked what nationality they were, (she was curious; she didn't meet many Asian-American people everyday) they replied that their parents were Korean who had come to the states together after they got married.

They continued to chatter and Rena told the pair that she was only forty and lived in a tiny town with her bestest friend ever, Gemma Renning. She also explained how she was looking for some bad guys to write an article about. Chris and Allen thought this was hilarious and laughed a good five minutes after she said, "No really, it's true!" Rena, her inner child controlling most of her life, pouted and spent the rest of their stroll to Jackson Park, (the Chicago Pack's headquarter of sorts) trying convince them that it was, in fact, very true. It wasn't until she was before the King and Queen, and the Spade Wolf, Liv Reidy, (Spade was the other Beta wolf, and she just so happened to be Chris's girlfriend) that either brother was won over to her side. The petite brunette explained and re-explained for two hours straight about her purpose in coming from Carpe Noctum. The Queen, Meryl Winter, and the King, William Brooks, seemed distraught that there was someone out there hurting the Immortal races.

"Benjamin, that bastard -"

"Merry, breath. He's dead. He's dead - the Dusk Lady made sure of that. And the Hunters are gone by your hand. It can't be them." Apparently, the Dusk Lady was the Head Vampiress whose Dawn Lady, (Seneschal Vampire) and best friend had been kidnapped by a group of "Immortal Hunters". The Hunters' goal was to destroy all vampires and werewolves, who they believed were out to kill all humans, but when the Dusk Lady reached out to the Chicago Pack for help, they teamed up to shut down the company.

The King and Queen finally agreed that Rena would be allowed to stay in Chicago for as long as she desired, so long as she was mindful of the rules of the area. "Liv, I'm going to let you and Allen explain the dos and don'ts. You're all dismissed." Will waved a hand, and flashed a lazy smile.

"No problem!" the Spade chirped.

The small group left the park and Allen, Liv, and Chris thoroughly made sure Rena knew what she could and couldn't do while she was in town. Halfway through the lecture, Liv noticed the other female's distracted, slightly dazed look and stopped. "Rena, are you okay?"

She stopped too, but swayed on her feet. "Mmhm."

"You look like you're going to fall over."

"I'm just a little sleepy. And hungry."

"Well, why don't we bring you to your hotel -"

"Are you even staying at a hotel?" Chris cut in, remembering the condition he and his brother had found her in earlier. Rena shook her head and told them she didn't have the money to afford that.

Longer story short, Rena ended up staying with Liv and her roommate, Momoko, at an apartment complex where many of the wolves in the werewolf pack lived. Over the next few weeks, the Free Wolf made great friends with Chris, Allen, Liv, Momo, and a pretty cool human named Kyle, (Rena was always asking him unnecessary questions just to hear his neat Australian accent). She became really comfortable with the pack in the course of only a few days, excluding her sister and those goons, (Grey and Noelle, as their names happened to be) that followed her around like love sick puppies. She didn't understand how Kaguya had come to be the "Reaver Captain", (or Head Gamma Wolf) of such a strong pack, but she tried to not think about it too, too much.

The days passed without her noticing and soon, it was February. The young lady had done only a little bit of research on her goal after the original lead that brought her to Chicago in the first place feel flat. However, while she was out having dinner with her new gang one night, Rena's cell started singing like Shakira. This was odd, because she never had any "unknown numbers" call, but without leaving the booth at the local Uno's where Chris worked, she answered.

"Hello?"

"Hello, may I speak to a miss Rena Faires?" The voice on the other end was gentle and alluring, and most certainly male.

"This is her! Who is this?"

The voice chuckled. "You don't need to know my name, dear. Just know I'm the man that is going to get you your article." Rudely, Rena had begun to eat her side salad while the stranger spoke, but halfway to her mouth, the fork clattered to the table.

"W-What?"

"Sheila, what's wrong?" Kyle asked in his accent. Rena waved frantically, calling for quiet at the table. Again the voice in her ear laughed.

"That's right, miss Faires. I'm willing to give you a bit of information to publish at your magazine. On two conditions."

"What are the conditions?"

"Report my information as an anonymous source and nothing more. And leave the name 'Alastair O'Shannagan' out of the paper. For now."

"Ohmyflippin'goodliness, mister mysterious! You got yourself a deal!" Rena squealed, climbing over Allen and Momo to exit the row of seats. She was about to bolt out the door, but twirled around suddenly and asked Allen to go into her jacket pocket and get her notebook. Confused, he did so and handed it over, and Rena excitedly wrote down the address that was recited to her. "I'll be there in fifteen minutes!" With a smile, she snapped her phone shut.

"Who was that?" Momo asked innocently. She, nor anyone else at the table, was expecting the answer she got.

"I don't know!" the young wolf sang happily, earning a long, uncomfortable pause from the group.

"Uh, sheila? You're kidding, right?"

"Nope! Liv, can you pass me my bag?"

"Hold on a second, Rena! Where are you going?" She showed the table the address she had written down. A frown marred every single face. "You can't go there!"

"Why not?"

"That Starbucks is in the Loop; the vampires run that area of town."

"So?"

"So you can't just waltz right in! Especially since you're not technically part of the Pack!"

"Well...can't one of you come with me?" She wasn't sure if her source would approve of that, but at this rate, they weren't going to let her leave alone. Liv and Allen exchanged look.

"Why don't you go with her?" The Ace suggested. Liv shook her head.

"Momo and I have a gig tonight, downtown."

"I don't want to go into that smelly rat-hole!"

"Send Kyle with her, then."

"You're kidding, right? Kyle can't do shit if something happens."

"Hey!"

"Sorry dude, but its true. Rena, you'll just have to wait for Chris's shift to end."

"B-But I need to go now!" she cried, distraught. Her hands flew out and grabbed onto the older Hyun's arm. "Please, Allen? Pretty, pretty please? I'll do anything! I'll buy you and ice cream! Or hot cream, since its cold out. I'll send you a sandman snowglobe from Hawaii for Christmas!"

"Okay, okay, okay." he groaned dramatically, then forced himself to a standing position. "Lets go."

They were off to the northern half of the city. It didn't take quite fifteen minutes to get there, but with the delay from their talking, the pair walked through the door at just the right time. And the instant they stepped into the coffee shop, Rena's hand was clasped in a larger, more masculine one.

"Glad to see you made it, Miss. Faires. Who is your friend?" Taken by surprise, she could only stare at the man who had pressed his lips to her knuckles.

"Your name first, dude."

"You don't need my name, 'dude'."

"Then you don't get mine." Allen put a hand on Rena's shoulder, already ready to make a dash for the car.

"You're certainly a disagreeable one, aren't you? Fine. My name is Ailbhe. Pleasure to make your acquaintance."

"...Allen, Ace Werewolf." There was a tense silence where the sparks seemed to fly between the two men. Hastily, Rena went on.

"Um, Mister Ailbhe? Not to rush your manly stare off or anything but..."

The vampire laughed. "Of course, of course! This way, I've already gotten us a table. Sir Ace, I'll have you wait here."

"Pft, yeah right, dude. Fat chance at that."

"I'll be alright, Allen. You wait here."

"But -"

"You should listen to a lady, Allen." Ailbhe used the hold he had on Rena's hand to steer her away and towards a two-person table in the center of the room. He was a very handsome nice man, and a perfect gentleman. The two of them made light conversation before Rena was given what she wanted - what she had come all the way to Chicago for: her article. After the attacks on Brody and Alex especially, she felt particularly attached to this case. She had snuck out of town for the sake of it, not a word to anyone besides her roommate. She hadn't even returned any frantic calls or texts from her co-workers and friends from the University. For a little while, her purpose had been made fuzzy by these new and exciting friends. But Ailbhe had reminded the student-and-reporter of that conviction she held in the weeks earlier. With the name "Rose Alliance" on her mind, she shook Ailbhe's hand, thanked him thrice over, and made her way back to the door, and Allen.

"Are you okay?" He asked, holding out a hand for her to take. His dark eyes weren't focused on her, but the smiling man she had just left behind.

"Fine, but lets go back to Uno's. I want to finish my pizza before going to the library."

They headed back, the ride back into the south being dead silent besides the scratching of pen on paper. The dinner was a little bit more quiet, too, especially when Momo and Liv had to run off nearly right after Rena and Allen returned. Chris got off, and the three of them went home, (they spent the entire car ride convincing Rena that the library would not be open at nine o'clock at night. They would drop her off first thing in the morning. Promise). The night was full of restless sleep and her dark eyes simply refused to close. She was still wide awake on Momo and Liv's couch when they got home from their show, (the two of them were in a pretty amazing band that played live in different venues around the city). Liv hit the sack almost immediately after, but Momo was too worried about Rena to go right to sleep. She sat down with the other girl, talked to her for a bit, and made her some warm milk to help lull her into slumber.

The next morning, they had a large breakfast and then Rena was off to the library. For the next few days, she researched as much as she could about The Rose Alliance - everything from what they did, to where they came from, to what they were doing now. The search didn't turn up much, but it was enough to go off of for Midnight Magazine.

Which meant it was time to go home to Carpe Noctum.

"I'm going to miss you guys sooooo much!"

Momoko wrapped the smaller girl in a friendly hug. "Aw, sweetie! Don't cry! You can come visit us anytime!"

"Any of us will come and get you whenever you want -" Liv started, but Allen shot in.

"Hell, maybe we'll even come down for a visit!"

"Either way, this won't be the last you see of us."

Rena gave a teary smile and continued with her hugs. "You're welcome any time! I mean, we don't have a lot of room in our apartment, but we'll figure something out! Carpe Noctum's really cool and everything! I'll show you around all the best places. You can meet Gemma, and Alex and Brody, and Gee! They'll love you all."

"Any friends of Rena's are friends of ours!" Kyle grinned, taking off his "gansta hat" and placing it on her head. They continued to exchange goodbyes, hugs, and sayonara gifts, (Rena got one of Kyle's awesome hats and a burned CD of one of Liv and Momo's club concerts. Chris and Allen didn't give her anything personal, but they were giving her a ride back to CN). Once that was all said and done, the tears were wiped away and the Hyun brothers hopped into the car. Rena followed in the back seat. She waved from the window to her friends for as long as they could, until they disappeared from view. The next few days, the trio spent every possible minute talking and enjoying the last of their time together. Much too soon, the landscape that passed the tinted windows of Chris's monsterous red jeep became more and more familiar. In the backseat, leaning back to back against Allen while playing Go Fish, (unlike Gemma, the brothers thought wearing seat belts were for losers. When she was the only one to get clicked into place, they laughed at her. "I'm no loser, mister losers!" she huffed, tossing off the braided fabric) she whimpered. It was early, perhaps midnight. They had been driving since the early afternoon; the plan was to drop Rena off at home, Chris and Allen would grab a few hours of sleep at the motel, and start back up to Chicago.

"Rena! I asked if you had any fours!"

"Huh? Oh, right! Go fish~"

"Wrap it up you two, we're almost there."

"Dude, you're such a party pooper!"

"Dude, don't even go there."

"Dude -"

"Look! There's my street!"

When they pulled into the apartment's drive way, it was a bitter sweet moment for Rena. All three of them hopped out of the car and engaged in a group hug. More crying came from the female, and Chris pulled off her hat from Kyle, ruffled her hair playfully, and set the accessory back on her head. Allen gave her a second hug.

"Thanks for everything you guys. I'll miss you!"

"And we're gonna miss you."

"Promise you'll --"

"Rena May Fuurde!" Her name was spoken in a harsh British accent. The three turned to see a miss Gemma Renning in the doorway, a shocked look on her pale face.

"Gemma! You're up! How are --"

"Where in the bloody hell have you been?"

Again Rena started to cry, this time in fear, and hid behind Chris and Allen. The men spent a good long while explaining what had transpired in the last few months - more specifically in the last few weeks. The sobbing werewolf flung herself at her platinum haired friend, hiding her face in Gemma's shoulder. Then of course, when it was time for the brothers to leave, she clung to the both of them. She told them over and over that she would be back to see them and that Allen should kick Kaguya out of the pack because she was a meanie face, and that if she didn't get a call from any of them by the end of next week, she was marching right back up there to scold. The guys laughed and agreed that they didn't want to evoke the wrath of an angry little Asian girl, and agreed that she would hear from them all soon - the girls and Kyle included. Then Chris and Allen got into the jeep, started the engine, and drove away. Rena waved for longer than necessary and Gemma had to lure her back inside with the promise of hot chocolate. Now that the rush was over, the former was starting to feel a little bit lighthead and tired. Immediately upon realizing this, she bolted up straight and smacked her hands on the counter. "Gemma, I need to go write my article. Right now. I'll be back in a few hours, okay? Don't worry, I'm not going to Hawaii!"

With that, she bolted outside and down the street. For some reason, she felt like she could not waste another minute - her article needed to be written and sent to Brody as soon as possible. The urgency of the issue seemed to return full force.

And this is where we currently join our sassy little lady. Since she was the chief assistant, she had a copy of the office building office's key so, despite it being nearly one in the morning, she was easily able to shuffle into the modern place. Rena yawned as she made the short walk to her office, flicked on the lights, and plopped into her swirly-twirly-office chair. "Ahhh, feeeet happy!" She grinned, her soles silently thanking her. Her pale hand smacked the power button to her computer and then riffled through her desk for the bag of chips she left there before Christmas. Loud crunching was the only sound to be heard for nearly the next hour and a half, other than the heavy clicking of keys on a keyboard. The article was lacking, Rena decided after editing it for the third time and not finding any grammatically mistakes. It wasn't her best, but it was all that she was going to get. For now.

Fatigue had set in fully by the time two o'clock had rolled around. She rolled her shoulders and snatched her phone. Her fingers easily dialed her boss's number. Like she expected, it went to voicemail and she left a sleepy message for when he woke up. "Hi, Brody, its Rena." she paused to yawn. "Sorry for not contacting you for so long, but I've been sorta. Uh. Busy. But I just finished my article; it'll be sitting in your inbox for the morning when you head to the office. I'm - uhhh. I'm really, really sleepy and I haven't seen my bed in a month, so I'm probably going to call in for tomorrow. Is that okay? I hope so...but don't worry - wake me up if you need me! Really! Its okay." the thought of being woken up at this point almost brought tears to her eyes. "Please don't need me, though. Anyway, I'll see you soon. Tell Alex and Gee 'hi' for me when you see them. Night! Or, er, morning?" Almost immediately she closed her phone, hit the power button on her computer again, and dragged herself to her feet.

Twenty minutes later, Rena Faires, (formally Rena Fuurde) was snuggled in her warm, fluffy bed, for the first time in months. The young woman smiled as she slept soundly, home safe from her long adventure.

Finally.

-- notes PART TWO OF MY LONGEST POST EVAR! woot! so, yeah. i'm posting this as an explanation as to what rena's been up to in the last month and a half. solo means that no one else is to post in here; its pretty much just in character development. ALSO NOTE: Gemma and all of the characters mentioned from Chicago, (Chris Hyun, Allen Hyun, Liv Reidy, Hio Momoko, William "Will" Brooks, Meryl "Merry" Winter, Kaguya Fuurde, Grey Phaenac, Noelle Saunders, Kyle Flynn, and Benjamin Culkin) either belong to myself, or my best friend, Fidget. Under NO circumstances are you allowed to use their personalities and names, especially in combination with their faces, and claim them as your own. They will not be played here on CN, so for all intensive purposes, consider them NPCs and will from here on, probably only be mentioned by Rena or Gemma.

New Polls!!!!!

Posted 17 June 2012 at 1:01 AM by Kat

Brand new set of monthly polls are up and running. You can find them here. The polls will close July 1 so don't forget to vote!!! Remember NOT to vote for yourself (as in your own characters) otherwise you will be disqualified from the next polls.


PLEASE READ BEFORE VOTING!!!!

Posted 1 June 2012 at 10:20 PM by Leona

When you see a poll of some sort, then try and take the time to read what it's about and who's allowed to vote. This means in particularly the homecoming polls. They are ONLY for High School characters. So if your character isn't a high school student then DO NOT VOTE!!!! Thank you.


Splashing Colours in the Chat

Posted 30 May 2012 at 11:05 PM by Leona

It is now possible to get your name in your favourite colour, as long they don't get too close to Katie, Susie and Kat's (when she's got her colour coded). Anything in a lighter shade or in a completely different colour is possible. All you have to do is send me a PM with a colour code and I will change it asap.


New Admin

Posted 28 May 2012 at 04:25 PM by Leona

Kat has announced that she'll be moving to the Philippines to study and because of that we have announced Katie as our third admin, so I'm not completely alone and Kat can concentrate on her studies. Kat will of course try and be on as much as she can after she's moved. So if something is burning in here, then you can now ask Katie for help as well.


Don't forget to Vote

Posted 27 May 2012 at 11:25 AM by Leona

If you haven't voted for the monthly polls yet then you can still do it. Remember that you can use as many of your characters you want to vote with as long you don't vote for one of your own characters. You can find them here. The polls will close June 1. Furthermore we have two homecoming polls. So let your high school characters vote for who should be homecoming king and queen. The polls closes 9 June, you can find them in the event board.
