- The Legend of "Scarecrow" Jack -

spacer.png

Generations ago, a farmer lived on the outer side of Noware. His name was Jack O'Lanton. He was a kind man of middle age, he would regularly sell his seasonal crops at the market in the Noware square on weekends and mid days of the week, they say that his harvests were fresher, crisper sweeter than any other vendor. To this day, no one knows his secret for such fine produce.

His specialty, however, were his favorite crop; Pumpkins. How he loved them, everything about them, the heft, the varying shapes and sizes, the various pumpkin treats that could be made from the famous squash... Not to mention, it was his hottest seller annually, townsfolks would flock to his stall for his plump, unparalleled pumpkins, which he delivered and sold by the cart which was stacked up high like a mountain each time he would roll into town, along with fresh baked pumpkin pies, bread loaves and purees.

During the Fall season, he could regularly be seen by passerbys on the road, keeping unwanted visitors from his prized crop during the day, earning him the nickname Scarecrow Jack... But his success was not without it's trials. There were young men in town who would regularly dog him and steal his crops in the night, particularly during the Fall, when the pumpkin harvest was nearest. Into his patch they would leap, hooting, hollering, hoisting pumpkins over their heads and throwing them into others, at each other and stomping on the juicy, plump squash, destroying several of them for their own sick kicks. 

Jack would always appear too late, unable to predict what edge of his vast patch they would invade, and by the time he got there, the boys would be dancing in the pulp and guts of the pumpkins they pulverized. He would approach to reprimand them, but they would shove him down into the slop they created and laugh at him, call him names, "One day, you're gonna turn into a pumpkin, Scarecrow man!", they would jeer before taking their leave. Sullen, but far from defeated, Jack would pick himself up time and time again and use the seeds from the destroyed crop to plant a new patch, then tend with care to those that remained. It was bothersome, but they could never get close to destroying all of them...

...Until one fall, when the boys had grown into men and added a few more crows to their murder. They came late at night and approached from all sides of the patch, bent on doing more damage than ever. Jack heard the chaos from inside his quaint farmhouse, but this time he was ready. He picked up a harvesting sickle that hung by his door, and out he went. 

He was surprised, as he came out of the tall grass surrounding the patch, to see a single man stomping and stumbling over his pumpkins. They usually came in greater numbers and it gave him pause for a moment. The invader was clearly drunk, he could smell the alcohol even over the smell of the ruined pumpkins' innards. "H-Hey! You!", He shouted as he ran at the man.

"Scarecrow!", The man shrieked, startled and drunk as he stumbled to his feet And ran off in another direction of the patch through tall grass. "Scarecrow, Scarecrow!", He taunted, his voice shrinking off into the distance.

Jack realized that the man wasn't alone, after all, and was sounding an alarm to his group. They were everywhere, he could hear them now in the silence he was left in, echoes of laughter and hooping coming from all around. They would do more damage to his patch than ever before this way and he couldn't get to each of them in time to stop them... 

"Why..?", He asked, dropping to his knees in the pulp of the smashed pumpkins, which he picked up a handful of and then let his arm drop loosely. "What have I done..? Why do they harass me so..?", He asked himself as a tear of frustration rolled down The valleys of his aging cheek. His teeth ground together and his lip quivered, he slammed his fist into the pulp below, making it splash over him. "I hate them!", He shouted, bent down on his knees and elbows as his head hung limp between his shoulders. "Help me...", He whispered...

It was legend, even in his time, that strange things happened the closer it grew to All Hallow's Eve in the town of Noware. Ghost stories and campfire tales, most dismissed them as, but there were some folk, some story tellers, who told such elaborate stories that some believed them. Tales of the supernatural, of the weird, of the impossible... Scarecrow Jack's story was just beginning.

He felt a cool sensation beginning to crawl up his legs and he sat up to inspect what was happening, seeing his legs sinking into the pool of orange pulp. He'd sat there for too long, he supposed, and he sniffled as he attempted to get up... But he could not. "What in-...?", He asked as he tugged on his legs, trying desperately to get free... Then he realized, he was not sinking. He was being swallowed. "A-... Ahhh!", He shrieked, the cold pulp of the pumpkins creeping further up his body under his clothing. He grunted and cried out with panic as he clawed and tore at the pulp, some of his flesh ripping away with it, but it was spreading faster than he could remove it. Vines shot up from around the pumpkins and wrapped around his wrists and arms, around his neck, binding him as he was consumed. He tried to scream, but the tight grip around his neck prevented it... With one powerful jerk, the vines pulled the man down forward, he forced out one final shriek before his face crashed into a pumpkin, and then, silence...

"Did... Did you hear that?", The invader from before asked his friend he'd joined.

The other man ceased his stomping and looked over his shoulder, his eyes scanning the field around them, listening in the silence for anything more than the joyous sound of laughter from his companions. "Nah.", He said, "Reckon ya heard a crow.".

"No, that was no crow.", The other said, "It came from where Scarecrow was...".

"Who cares?", his friend said as he kicked a bit of pumpkin guys from his shoe, "Come on, let's get outta here. Buzz is wearing off.".

"He's an old man.", The drunk man said, "It's fun to smash pumpkins but I don't want the guy to be hurt.".

"What're ya now, some kinda girl?", His friend scoffed, "F'rget the old coot, let's get the boys and have a few more rounds. I'm tired.".

"Y-... Yeah.", The drunk man said, still looking over his shoulder towards the part of the patch he'd exited from as he followed his friend through the talk grass leading towards their group.

They shambled through the field, the rustling of leaves in the wind, the crunch of the flora below their feet and  chirping of crickets were all to break the silence in the air, until the air went completely still, completely silent and they came to a stop, looking at each other as if to confirm they weren't alone in noticing the deafening silence that suddenly befell them. A crackling could be heard before a high pitched vibration, which they could feel in their feet, and then, sound returned to the world around them. 

"W-what the hell was that?", The drunk man asked, a quiver in his voice.

"I-... I don't... Let's get out of here!", His friend shouted as he began to hyperventilate and sprint as quickly as he could towards their friends.

They reached the clearing to the next part of the patch and what they saw could have driven them mad... A tall, thin character, with a carved pumpkin for a head, danced and hopped about in a pool of red debris, which they quickly identified to be what used to be their friends. The scarecrow paused, it's back turned to the men, then the pumpkin on it's shoulders turned, slowly, completely around to face them.

"J-... Jack?!", The drunk man shouted.

The inside of the pumpkin began to glow so spontaneously that fire shot out of the holes carved for it's facial features. It's body snapped around in the direction it's head faced and he raised a familiar sickle, which still dripped with blood.

"Move it!", The friend shouted as he grabbed his drunk companion and took of like the devil in the opposite direction. "Oh god, oh god!", He panted as he sprinted, directionless now, as long as they were heading away from the monster that danced in the guts of their friends the way they danced in the guts of the pumpkins they smashed annually. Suddenly, with a shout, his foot caught on a bit of knotted grass below him and he tripped, nearly bringing his friend down with him.

The drunk man stopped, but only for a moment, and continued on, leaving his friend behind. Soon, he hurried back to the patch he started in, seeing the wooden fence he'd hopped. Just a few more steps and he could run into town for help, for safety and-... A bad step in the guts of a pumpkin caused him to slip and fall, tumbling into the ruin he created. He started to get up, but the pulp seemed to bind him in place, he could not move as he hugged and cried out, continuiously pulling at his arms to get free... He was almost there.

He paused, frozen, as he saw a glow like fire casting over the ground beneath him. He looked over and there was the scarecrow, shambling towards him, sickle in hand. "Oh, god, oh, god...", He whimpered, "Jack, is that you?!", he asked, noticing that Jack was nowhere else to be found. "I-I'm sorry, Jack! It was... It was just a bit of fun, we didn't mean for-...!", He paused.

Behind the scarecrow, his friend held a large pumpkin over his head and with a roar, crashed it over the scarecrow's head, causing it to fall limp and the glowing jack-o-lantern for it's head to extinguish and split to pieces on the ground below.

Huffing with his hands on his knees, the man looked over the scarecrow, then prodded at it with his foot and kicked the pieces of the pumpkin away, looking for who was underneath, but found no one. "It... It isn't human...", He said, confused.

The drunk man was released from the pulp and he arose to his knees with relief, but looked over his hands, covered in pulp. "Th-... The boys. They...", He swallowed hard and shoot his head as his hands buried his face, "Oh god, this is a nightmare...".

His friend shook his head and caught his breath, then stood up straight, "I... I don't know what we saw.", He said, "I just know we need to get the hell out of here.".

The drunk man nodded and started to get up, but froze as his blood ran cold. Behind his friend, a pumpkin raised with talk roots seeming to grow straight uoward, until the squash seemed to carve itself, just like the scarecrow had before... He raised a shaky hand and stuttered, pointing over his friend's shoulder.

His friend squinted his eyes, then turned around, only to be grabbed by the creature's hands, which felt like the rough roots of a plant, and held tightly in place as the pumpkin towered over him and he stared up at it. There was a silence as he drew in and exhaled shaky breaths, until he opened his mouth to speak.

With an ear splitting shriek, the scarecrow's face lit again and fire cascaded out of it, engulfing the man in it's grip as the drunk man watched in absolute horror, too afraid to even look away, until the fire subsided and the man the scarecrow held crumbled to ash in it's grip. It settled it's gaze on the drunk man and approached, vines raised at it's side and brought it the sickle it held before. The sickle spun in it's fingers and it drifted towards the drunk man until it reached him and bent down, stating at him.

The drunk man swallowed and trembled like a leaf, then with a silent voice, as if his voice was stolen, "P-please, I...".

With an echoey, deep hiss of air coming from the jack-o-lantern, he could have sworn he heard, "It's just a bit of fun...", before....

- The Girl Who Played in the Dark -

spacer.png

"Isabelle, Isabelle, sad in her home, mother and father would leave her alone. 

"Isabelle, Isabelle, Come home before dark", the young girl was told before playing in the park.

Isabelle, Isabelle, so playful and kind, in the dark she had friends from life's other side.

"Isabelle, Isabelle", The darkness would call, "Come to us, child, the dark is perfect for someone so small!"

Isabelle, Isabelle, in the dark she would play, dusk after dusk when night came from day.

Isabelle, Isabelle, so playful and kind, she had no idea of the darkness' design.

Isabelle, Isabelle, it happened one day, the darkness was intent on more than just play.

"Isabelle, Isabelle, open your heart!", the darkness told her, "And then the fun really will start!"

Isabelle, Isabelle, so playful and kind, she smiled and obeyed, with unfortunate trust, her soul would unwind.

Isabelle, Isabelle, not quite herself, returned home that night looking in very poor health.

"Isabelle, Isabelle, what's happened to you?", The young girl's mother asked, through neglect her worry suddenly grew.

Isabelle, Isabelle, so playful and kind, simply smiled at her mother... And melted her mind.

"Isabelle, Isabelle, what have you done?!", Her father did shout, running to her mother as the girl began to pout.

Isabelle, Isabelle, to her father she stepped, "I've been alone for so long, for so long I've wept.".

Isabelle, Isabelle, so playful and kind, ripped out her father's eyes, leaving him blind.

"Isabelle, Isabelle! I can not see!". Isabelle giggled, "The darkness will help you, just as it helped me!".

Isabelle, Isabelle, her eyes filled with black, her parents were slaughtered, she did not look back.

Isabelle, Isabelle, in the dark she still plays, still playful, still kind, though still some say:

"Isabelle, Isabelle, so playful and kind, look her in the eyes and your soul she will grind.". "

_______________________________________

This is a rhyme told to children to keep them from staying out too late, it is a bit of a newer urban legend... But there are some who say that some nights, when a fog drapes over Noware, while walking in the woods, a young woman can be seen dancing alone in a veil of darkness...

The first family of Noware was said to have a hound, a hound that disappeared into the woods surrounding the developing town when ruin fell over the family's house. Cursed as the family was, the hound was no more fortunate and though it escaped, it wasn't without price. 

Stories tell of a single wolf who prowls the woods of Noware, stalking silently around the town, some stories even say that the wolf walks upright, like a man. The elderly say the wolf is a guardian for the town to ensure the evil from the first family's house never spills out of Noware. Some say that it is a wolf that was lost from it's pack and now finds itself hunting along, too afraid to approach civilization. Young women like to laugh that it's clearly looking for a mate.

In any case, the woods hold many secrets. If you're walking through them at night, keeping to the safe road through them, look around. You just might see a pair of eyes watching you from the darkness.

- The Nowhere Clown -

spacer.png

An urban legend that seems to be more popular around Autumn with the elder residents of Noware. It is said, during the festival held in the town during Halloween, there is a clown. Mind you, not like any other clown, a clown that only specific people seem to be able to see. The stories say that if you're unfortunate enough to see the clown, you're marked for a horrible fate. 

The geezers need to get with the times, who is even afraid of clowns anymore, right?

      Hey hey, i've been wondering if anyone wants to do some incest RP with me?
      Not the type where its like we aleardy had feelings for each other and wanted to do sex in the same day, but something that builds up story from a normal family to incest.
      So if anyone feels interested, lets talk it out~ I can rp as boy or girl, mom or dad, uncle or aunt, anything you find desirable and you can tell me what you wanna rp :d
      Im fine with any age as long its not the forbidden one as example (8) if ya know what i mean, unless its the looks then it might work out, as in a demon looking loli whos age is 9000 or some stuff like that xD as example.
      Im just willing to try out amazing long story rp about a family that leads into incest, it dont matter about subs or doms, just imagine yourself in that situation and what you would do :d realistical logic type of rp instead of just going and groping someone and be like "ooops" you wouldn't do that irl to your family xD but thats just example.
      If you are interested hit me up and lets talk it out who you will be and who i will be and how many characters we both gonna roleplay as or so :d

      ~ Where Do You Belong? ~
      The Archean era burned once the cyanobacteria rose to claim their home. For even the most incompetent organisms bested the forces of nature, making it give into their barbaric desires. Knights, spartans, samurais, and vikings roamed to take over once the fossils were buried into the Earth. Such giant creatures, destroyed by the one organism that created them. Terra, Earth. Not a tuned mechanism, but a highly evolved organism! Even the best neurological scientists couldn’t comprehend the sheer vast complexities of the being they lived on, Gaia. The solar system was living, breathing, and the humans never even knew it. How come Earth was the only planet with life on it? Or so one may think, but perhaps there were... Forces beyond cerebral comprehension? The beings who went up, yet never came down. Were they the ones who assisted mankind? Where was Olympus and the underworld? Was Plato suppressed from telling those secrets..?
      Natu was a peculiar one to document all of mankind’s history, considering if man saw him, he’d be considered history to the vast knowledge of all life. A round stone that developed consciousness, growing an eye over thousands of years. Witnessing the tragedies and benefits made of humankind. Yet there were secrets he needed to prove to his ancestors, even if they were dead. The secrets of Atlantis, the eighteen gods, and the extra terrestrials that ran away from the burning fire that was awareness. Naturally summoned a girl to help him, one who didn’t have much purpose in her old life, but now did. At least she may’ve thought so, and so... Would she be able to uncover the truth of all creation with the assistance of the eye? 
      ~  ~ ~ ~~~ ~ ~  ~
      Hey there! It’s me! I have another little bulletin post for you all! And this time, things are quite a bit different if you haven’t read that up above. Or at least, this idea’s a bit different from the others I’ve made. This one was kinda made up on the fly, so it may be a little confusing, but that’s honestly kind of the main factor of it. Confusing like the world we live in.
      This roleplay is a heavily story focused, ancient mystery sort of thing... Not something you could really summarize I suppose, but basically. It’s about a girl who is suddenly transported to this ancient being who wants to fulfill some sort of quota of knowledge. She is needed to reach others who know secrets about her world’s creation. That’s as basic as I can tell it, for this is a much more lore and story based roleplay. So that may mean not a lot of smut, and that could be a big turn off for some, so I can understand that. 
      For this roleplay, I’d like to play... Well... Many characters actually, as I won’t focus just on the ancient eye, Natu. And for my possible partner, I wouldn’t say to just stick with one character either, perhaps you could do a handful of roles too? I’m not sure, but there’ll have to be a lot of discussion before we’d start.  (Also, there are references at the bottom..!)
      Here are some things I look for in roleplay: 
      Decent Length  (I can write about 3 - 4 paragraphs usually, but I can negotiate!) Decent Spelling/Grammar  (As long as it’s not too distracting, it doesn’t have to be perfect!~) Expression  (Mainly with character details and dialogue, I love a good personality in writing..!) And here are things I don’t look for: 
      One Liners  (It’s a little frustrating to write a whole bunch of paragraphs, only to get a few sloppy words back.) Excessive Fluff  (Small details are nice, but when they slow down or contradict the story, then we have a problem...) Ghosting  (Please do not ghost anyone. Because what’s the point of starting a new roleplay just to corrupt it? It’s discouraging to others, so please let me know if you want to pause or stop the roleplay, I’ll always understand.) With that out of the way, here are some additional details I’d like you to remember. For one, I do NOT care what your IRL gender is, this is fiction after all. So I don’t mind if you’re a man or woman roleplaying with me, as long as we can both play the part well, then we’ll be good! Now... Here’s the one thing that most people roleplay for... K... K... Well, actually, I’m not exactly sure what to put here for kinks. This is a more plot focused idea, so for now I’ll just put... 
      Vanilla! And... H-Hand Holding..?
      And that should do it! I do apologize for the lack of... Well, anything smut related. Yet I really do believe that this is one of my more ambitious ideas. I mean, ambitious is a strong word, but it’s something I thought would be more fun than just another romance themed story. Something a little bit more adventurous I guess you could say? I’m not sure, but anyways-- one request I’d like to ask for, is to have a preference sheet of some kind! I think preference sheets are very important when it comes to communication, so we can always see if we’re somewhat compatible as roleplayers or in more spicy terms I suppose, even if there’s very little of that in this particular story...
      Anyways, with all that wrapped up, I’d love to see one of you take interest! Even if this one doesn’t get much traction, I still hope it was at least an interesting read. I truly do enjoy making these bulletin posts for you to see, so know that! Roleplaying is an incredibly enjoyable hobby, and I’m sure we can all agree on that, so I hope I can make someone’s day with a great story! I’ll see you there!~   (>///O)
      And thank you for reading this~ ♥️

      Looking to start a role play or a series of role plays focusing on a new dating site that was made to hook up monsters with humans.
      The world is based in modern times but with a fantasy element that that fantasy races live their to. Monsters and humans kept themselves apart from each other for for the most part, humans doing it because they feared a monsters looks and abilities and monsters because of how humans viewed them. But over the years, monsters and humans slowly started to grow closer and work together to make the world better, but still kept a distance between each other. 
       
      Intill a business woman came out one day, saying that she had fallen in love with a monster and that their was nothing to fear from to becoming closer with them and even loving a monster. She also said that she was releasing a online dating service for monsters and humans to meet. 
       
      The role play starts soon after the app goes live and I’ll be playing as either a male monster, if you want to play as a human woman or I’ll be human male if you want to play as a female monster. Be aware that this is, while is going to have a lot of sex, I want to always do a good story  and bond between the characters to(Unless you just want to do a quick story  for a hookup between the characters.) If your interested and have a idea you want to do let me know.
       
      My pairing Cravings(Will add more)-
      A father Orc who was secretly married to Imp before and had two sons. When his tribe found out about it they banished him and his family. His wife died soon on the after and so with a broken heart and a hate for his kind, he turned to joining a human construction company that was hiring monsters. He did a good job their, due to his incredible strength and work ethic, but after ten years he felt a longing to love again. So when the service for a monster and a human came out he immediately signed up.(Preferred partner would be a motherly woman, due to his two teenage kids, but younger is fine to.)
