"Believing in even the possibility of a happy ending is a very powerful thing."


Deep in the sleepy town of Storybrooke, Maine, something has awoken, and once this power is unleashed, it cannot be stopped. A stranger has come to Storybrooke, and with her the power to do the unthinkable: change the town forever, and break the curse. This is a tale of two worlds: One set in the world that we know, full of heartbreak and uncertainty and no guarantee of a happily ever after; the other in the world that to some, only exists on the pages of storybooks. For the Evil Queen has placed the most terrible curse imaginable on such beloved 'characters' as Snow White, Prince Charming, Rumpelstiltskin, and Cinderella: to live out their lives in our world, unable to recall their lives in the other. Only Emma, the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, has a chance at breaking the spell.

Storybrooke is a place where anything can happen, and often does, and the parallels between our world and the fairy-tale world are endless. So stroll on through the town's main square and see what happens. Just remember to avoid the woods...and that some things are stranger than fiction.

RULES:
1. No God-modding of other characters
2. No Mary-Sues, please.
3. Original characters are allowed
4. Try to keep canon characters IC (in character)
5. Recommended but not required: If you are playing an OC, try to put in fun hints as to who your character is in the fairy-tale world, just like on the show!

This RPG will follow the continuity of the first part of the first season of Once Upon a Time--meaning, you should have knowledge of the show up until the point where they took a break for Christmas. :) After that, it may branch off from the show's plotline a bit as we create our own!

ORIGINAL CHARACTERS!

Arabella

Name: Meredith Klein
Age: 17
Gender: Female
Appearance: Long, wavy red hair, pale skin with freckles that burns if she even thinks about the sun, wide hazel eyes
Play-By (Optional): Karen Gillan
Personality: Merry has a tendency to be stubborn and extremely reckless, rarely stopping to think before she acts. She can be a bit of a teenage rebel at times, much to her father's chagrin, and although she is a good student, she takes very little interest in school. She loves nature, though, and loves to take long walks in the woods surrounding Storybrooke and on the rocky shoreline on the edge of the town. She is a bit of a loner, and feels like her best friend Elijah (who is much more timid than she) is the only one that truly understands her. Meredith has professed a desire to be a singer since she was young, but it is simply not meant to be, as she is completely tone-deaf.
History: Meredith's father blames her attitude on the fact that Meredith's mother left the family so long ago that Merry hardly remembers her at all. He is constantly trying to 'reform' Meredith and get her to act more conventionally, which she resents.
Equivalent in the Fairy-Tale World (Optional): The Little Mermaid

Ha, we three are the only ones online right now. It's like our very own Ari-Amara-Harthad club!

Before I start, let's have a show of hands: Shall we set this before SPOILER Graham's death or after?

Starting!

-------

Emma paced around her new office, staring down at the shiny Sheriff's badge in her hands. Mr. Gold's voice echoed in her mind, but right now she could hardly be bothered to worry about his threats and promises and warnings for the future. Her mind was too busy thinking of another person, the last one to wear this badge...Graham.

When she was young, Emma thought of herself as a walking natural disaster, bringing destruction to all she encountered. Her first foster family had given her away as soon as they'd been able to have a child of their own, and after that every home she was brought to were worst than the last. She was bounced around from house to house, sometimes only staying in one place for a few months at a time. The social worker would come back--usually a different one each time--and papers would be signed, and Emma and her pitiful few belongings would be packed into the back of the social worker's car and driven off. A new family, new school district, new life, just like that. Some houses she was glad to leave, others she would cry herself to sleep that night as she thought about the old life that had been once again snatched away from her...the life that Emma would never get to lead.

As she had grown up, of course, Emma had stopped thinking of herself as a destroyer of lives, instead taking charge of her own and worrying less about others. But after what had happened, she found herself drowning in the same thoughts once again. She had watched Graham die right before her eyes. That had to mean something...right?

There was a little knock at the door, and Emma slipped the badge into her pocket, reaching up a hand to wipe away the few tears that were still clinging stubbornly to her eyelashes. "Yeah? Come in!"

(Absolutely! Canons don't need bios, so feel free to hop in whenever!)
