Yeah I'm really sorry about that. It was my first RP and I was really excited about it but my limited time on the computer slowed me down so that I missed so much that it really wasn't worth it. When I get more time, I will probably try another one because it was alot of fun just not right now. Sorry for dropping out D=

DOK was awesome.

Point blank.

Great ideas, great characters, and great writers. Everyone in the RP contributed something to it, even if they don't think so, they did.

I was doing math homework and, once again, got distracted. So I came onto the forums and, for some reason, I read the last few posts of ARP... Don't ask me why, I just did. But anyway, when I read my last post in that RP, I realized, "Wow, did I really write that?! Its so.. bad!" Grammar mistakes all over the floor and I could definitely fix up the details and everything. So, well, I plan on fixing it for funsies and posting it later! I mean, ever since we started these Roleplays, I think that everyone has improved in their writing skills.

So I have a challenge for you guys.

Find an old post in any of the Roleplays that you believe you can improve, and revise it!

Post the original and then the newly revised post, as well as what Roleplay it was in.

Silly? Yes.

Fun? Possibly.

Stupid? Probably

Pointless? That's up to you.

Amazingly, I haven't seen this post until now. A little late, but I accept your challenge! And since you don't seem to like your's(Which I really do like), I'm revisin' it first. ^^
From ARP:
Karmy's Final Words wrote:

Karmy stood watching as one by one, the team left. Finally, everyone was gone and she was the last one standing on top of the roof. "Well.. Fun is fun and done is done." she whispered as she looked upon the setting sun. With a deep sigh, she dove off the roof and into a portal. She knew where she was going, but she would never see it for as soon as she landed, a burlap sack was shoved roughly over head. Someone grabbed her hands before she could snap her fingers to get away. She kicked wildly as she felt herself hoisted up by the back of her shirt, her screams muffled. An all too familiar voice whispered in her ear before she felt a hard hit to the back of her head and her world faded into nothing;

"Gotcha'."

Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good is like expecting the bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian.

New One:

Karmy watched as the team departed, one by one, deserting what had been their home for what had seemed so little time now. Before long, she was the last one on the roof, her only company the setting sun. "Well...Fun is fun and done is done." She whispered with an air of finality, turning to the edge of the building. With a deep sigh, she dove off the side and-snap- landed in her portal. The teen knew her destination, but it was one she would never see. As soon as her feet touched solid ground, a burlap sack was roughly pulled over her head. Hands grabbed at her own, ousting her of her only chance of escape. She struggled and screeched as somebody hoisted her up by the back of her shirt. Her screams were muffled, and she knew nobody would hear. An all too familiar voice whispered into her ear, "Gotcha."

A hard smack to her head and her world faded into nothing.

Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good is like expecting the bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian.

I love ya too, Karms!

Actually, I liked your original post just fine! I only revised it because I don't even want to try and look at what crap I've left behind. Besides, you mentioned your's so it was the first one that came to mind.

And...sorry. I didn't realize it had to be my own post. I just saw "An old post". Not, "One of your old posts". I'll try one of my own later.

No no no don't be sorry! I think your idea is much better. You can revise anyone's post! Well, maybe ask them first. I don't mind at all, ever, but, yeah, it's more polite to ask them. I guess :T

Mercy wrote:"We met each other last week Nightstalker. Still thats a pretty stupid name you gave yourself." Malice mocked as she walked past her "So what are you doing here Nightstalker? You don't seem so confident. You look like you have no idea what you're doing child." She said as spiteful as she could.

Malice kicked Nightstalker in the balls.

Re: End Roleplay discussion-

SO...

Yesterday I trotted in on Karm and Merc chatting about what our ARP characters would play-Instrument wise. I haven't been able to get the idea out of my head ever since and, anyway, it's great practice for putting sound into words.

Guess who's playing what; it shouldn't be too hard.

Karms, Merc, I hope you don't mind me stealing your idears here...

Spoiler:
Tap-ti-tap-ti-ba-dum-ba-dumbadumbadum-bum.

"One!" The triumphant drummer called, twirling his drum sticks between the tips of his fingers after his little solo.

They opened all their concerts the same...If you could call them concerts. Picking up instruments and playing whatever tune they felt like, they'd melt together in a messy but melodic harmony. It always started with one of them playing a bit, then crying out "One!" as they were the first to play. Whoever was interested in the jam session would join in with the next number.

"Saturday! In the park!" The drummer's friend sang, loudly and, she'd be the first to admit, a little off-key. She brought a silvery trumpet to her lips and blasted out a rearing two note piece. "I think it was the Fourth of July!" C then F sharp. C then F Sharp. She repeated the notes, amplifying the volume each time. The blonde laughed when she finished, "Two!"

A more subdued member sat near the two in the corner. She brushed black bangs out of her eyes, so everyone could see she was rolling them. However, everyone could also see the reed between her lips. She took it out and quickly set up her instrument- An ebony clarinet, shining in the dim overhead lights. Her piece was a little one, short and bittersweet. The notes grew lower with each beat, with the final two ringing out higher than the rest.. Dadadadum-Dum-deedee. "Three," The brunette volunteered.

A familiar tune soon rang out. Two notes jumped into the air, low and beckoning. The notes seemed to dance up a staircase, growing higher in pitch and gradually quicker in tempo. When they hit an aching crescendo, they skipped down the steps, lower and slower. A kind blonde's head popped out, the master player behind it all, from behind a piano. "Four." She offered with a smile.

Frantic fingers began plucking at strings, and the noise chiming out was melodic and cheerful. The pitch pranced upwards and downwards quickly, the higher notes notably twanging as the musician picked at them. A brown-eyed girl smiled from around her own instrument of choice: a harp.

"Five!" Another instrument joined in swiftly, a more modern and electronic ruckus meshing in. Her fingers flew over the strings so quickly they were almost a blur, a rock and roll guitar riff rolling out. A fanged girl stood at the side, flashing her electric guitar with pride.

Re: End Roleplay discussion-

Post by Vandal on 6/6/2011, 1:34 am

Wow I can't believe I thought this post was good back then. Not only am I seeing grammatical errors all over the floor, but character inconsistencies. Of course I didn't really know my characters all too well myself... But here it goes... The Introduction to Barbara Gordon and Alice Mau in The Darkest of Knights.

Mercy wrote:At the Gotham City Police Department, the entire place was going haywire. "Chief we just lost satellite!" One said, "Our landline communication is offline!" Said another. "We're losing feed on the streets sir!!" The Chief looked around. "Well get it back! What's going on around here?" He screamed furiously. "No idea sir... we're losing all radio contact to. Must be a bug in the system." The Chief of Police face palmed. "Okay some mechanic in the communications room, stat!" "Sir!"

Barbara and Alice walked out very quietly, nearly tiptoing. "C'mon let's hurry." Barbara said swiftly stride forward and bumped into the mechanic. "Ms. Gordon!?" The strong southern accent rang in her head. "You alright Babs?" Alice asked helping her to her feet. "I'm fine... Officer Bard?"
"Ms. Gordon! It is you!"
"Call me Barbara, Officer.."
"And you call me Jason! What are you doing here? Its been months!"
"Uhh, this is my associate and uhh.. Babysitter. Alice, Alice Mau. I was showing her around."
"Babysitter?"
"Yeah, for Nicole.. She thinks she's old enough by now but Dick doesn't trust her."
"Oh yeah yeah.. Man what a terrible time for a tour, oh! So sorry to hear about your dad Ms. Gordon! We'll catch that bat once n' for all. You don't have to worry about a thing!"
"Yeah.. Worry."
Just then the Chief of Police came up to them. "Bard!! What're you doing?! Get to the communications room! Now Bard! Now!!" He screamed. "Gah!! Sorry sir! Just catching up with an old friend and I was-" "I don't care Bard! Hurry up! We're wasting time!!" "Yes sir!" Officer Bard replied and hurried off. The Chief of Police turned on his heel and walked in the opposite direction. 

"Babysitter?" Asked Alice. 
"It was the best I can come up with." Barbara replied.



Boys don't cry. Men on the other hand, do. And was Bullock crying right now. He had been forced under the quick decision to take upon the title of the Commissioner of Police, bring under Commissioner Gordon's lead, and his right hand man for years. Though he was never prepared to take James' job. Not only did he lose a friend and take his job, the police station was booming. The years busiest, Batman offs the Commissioner. Not only that but the overload was causing extremely strange activity in the police station's communications. 

"Dammit."
"What is it?"
"There's a lock in the code, we have to access the source grid to hack into the mainframe if we want to take out their communications temporarily."
"You sure he's innocent?"
"Dick wouldn't do that. That's completely irrational. So are you coming or what?"
"Are you okay?"
 
There was a pause between the two, sitting in a 2030 Mustang, a hundred yards from the police station with laptops warm, but closed, Barbara was focused on the matter at hand; her eyes aiming to her next destination, she wanted to get the job done without any questions asked. Blind faith and lost love tampers with the brain and deteriorates the mind. Imagine if your the person you most cared about was accused for killing your father. Well it wouldn't make sense if the person you most cared about was your father: that's not my point. Barbara had been caught in the crossfire between Dick and the murder of her father, the main suspect being Batman.

"I'm fine." Barbara opened the car door and stepped out. "We can't hack it from here. We need to be up close and personal." she said ignoring Alice, her worried companion. 

The brisk walk in the cold winds of November in Gotham to the police station was quiet as far as conversation went. The rest of the city was in proverbial flames, screaming and drunken lullabies could be heard in the distance by gym class heroes. It always seemed to be the end of the world for Gotham. 

Barbara and Alice walked in, hands in their pockets and looking about, their eyes darting left and right. The women had canvas bags slung over their shoulders. No one was at the front desk. Perfect. Without saying a word, they moved in, infiltrating the station was easier than it sounded. Barbara; having spent most of her days waiting for her dad in the station after school when she was in middle school. Her photographic memory aided her every turn; up the stairs, down the right hall, and the last door on left. 

"Is anyone coming?"
"No. Hurry up and open the door."
"One sec."

Barbara knelt on one knee and pulled out skeleton keys while Alice surveyed the vicinity, making sure no one was watching. The work they had accomplished from Alice's car. Taking out all phone lines and cameras around the city was easy, the real problem was their reinforced radio communications. 

A unsettling click of the door and Barbara looked up to Alice; standing up "We're in, let's go." 

The police station was soon going haywire, as all the wifi network crashed and further landline communications ceased. Bullock wiped his hair back and turned to the closest officer to him, Detective Jason Bard. "What the hell is going on Bard?" he asked, circles under his eyes. "I don't know Bullock... Commissioner..." Jason replied as he looked out of his office window, everyone yelling at each other, papers flying in the air, moving back and forth. "Go check the mainframe on the second floor Bard." Bullock said softly. "Sir." He nodded. 

Jason meandered down through the sea of chaos which was the third floor of The Gotham City Police Department, his mind was being racked by the screaming, the confusion. His eyes were glued to the hardwood floors, one hand over his forehead, another feeling his fob for his master key. Just then, he collided with someone else, his head banging hard against another, the redhead fell to the floor as Bard backed away in pain. 

"Aw sh*t, I'm an idiot! I'm really sorry-..." he paused in mid-sentence as he stretched his arm out to help her up, realizing who he bumped into. "Ms. Gordon? What are you doing here?"
"Looking for my dad with my friend, Alice. Alice Jason, Jason Alice. Have you seen him?" She explained taking Bard's hand. 
"Ms. Gordon..."
"Babs will do." 
"Ms. Gordon, you know what happened."
"And I don't believe it. Jason, where's my father?" Barbara asked, directly, with a straight face. Tearing up slowly.
"He's dead. I've seen him with my own eyes." The blond detective looked down to avoid Barbara's gaze. 

Alice put a comforting hand over her shoulder, "C'mon. Let's go." Alice said warming her up. Barbara covered her face as Alice directed her to the exit. Jason stood there, his hands in his pockets, looking down at the glossy wooden floors, blissfully unaware that the "smoking hot redhead" he just broke bad news to the point she cried had just taken down GCPD's entire communication network.
