    Code Lyoko: Opposing Forces


    It's quite probable that fans as well as non-fans of Code Lyoko have wondered why the Garage Kids never expanded their numbers to more efficiently combat XANA, the mastermind virus trying to destroy the world? And it would be interesting to expand the varieties of monsters, threats and their numbers.

    So I came up with the idea of an alternate universe where figures similar to Aelita and a mission control like Jeremy would probably still be necessary for a XANA fighting team, but we could make our own storylines, enemies and characters. It would still be heavily inspired by the show, naturally.

    All the joining members, except the bare starters (3 people or something) would be introduced through a threat they unexpectedly help combat and the group decides to let the individual in on their secret and virtualizes the person in Lyoko.

    This isn't to say that perhaps XANA does some recruiting of his own.

    The plot is for RPers something to create, combine and largely know and for readers to find out…


    Super Note!: Salvage your old posts from the closed topic before it disappears (I don’t know, where do closed topics go?). When in need and I do mean ‘not to be abused’ I have a back-up of all posts, which I will not filter;) so yeah, salvage or do your best finding your posts in the back-up (if I send it to you, for a good reason and somehow). Also, keep a back-up of your new posts!


    Some things to keep in mind... Yes, rules

    > The usual RP rules apply

    >Prime rule(s): Avoid unnecessary delays in the RP, post regularly, communicate, work together.

    >There is no posting order, but there is a posting limit; only one post per 'row'; in other words, if you have posted, you may not post until all others have posted again. To simplify things, I begin and end each row with my new post (unless I’m needed for mission control stuff, but I’ll try to say so when I do). After that, any order of the previous row is shuffled and people can post in any order they like, but don't wait on other people unless you've consulted with them on your plot idea.

    > To avoid spamming and delay of plot and time between members the above rule is in effect. To avoid delay because of writer’s block and other stuff, it is expected that you post within one week, two weeks at max which is counted from the date of your last post. Also see tips and tricks on writer’s block (or ask people as I’ll mention). Garage Kids are required to post on a very reliable regular basis as they can’t ‘do nothing for two turns’ on a mission for example. Non-Garage Kids are expected to post regularly and are required when they join the Garage Kids, naturally. For now dubbed ‘Virtual people’ have their own pace as long as their plot doesn’t intersect with the Garage Kids their plot.

    >If for any reason at any time you think you won’t be able to post in time, notify me and I’ll try to cover for you, though not too often, understandably. If possible, try to predict if certain things will make you unable to post as much ahead of time as possible so something can be done about it (in case of writer’s block for example) or I can cover for you within reasonable limits (a mountain of homework, plans, vacation, moving, sadness, happiness and so on; or just life irl. Though a heads up is appreciated).

    >Gabrielle will pick out the original fighters after they have introduced themselves. To be clear: they do not introduce themselves directly to her, but they display their behavior, skills and quirks with her happening to see it. In my next post, Gabrielle will invite them to go to the abandoned factory and they meet in the forest. The story goes from there. ;) Anything you'd like to remark or disagree with, feel free to put it in your post, a PM or a visitor message on my profile.

    >>Our initial Team Lyoko/Garage Kids is Taiyo (pending as I haven’t heard from her), Joaquin, Bea and Diego. If you're not one of those four, you can optionally introduce yourself outside Gabrielle's vision mission control). Or possibly you can initially say no to her invitation and only join a few "back to the pasts" later; we can brainstorm about it, though preferably not in the RP itself. Lastly, if you are already in Lyoko, you may begin as you normally would.

    Some useful notes and important guidelines

    >Writer's block: I usually work around the pressures of writer's block by writing a lot when I'm inspired so I have a reserve to pull a piece from to post, keeping ahead of the RP, although it's not always that easy. I'll try to include more future events hidden in spoilers and when stuck, PM me so I know why you're not posting and PM other creative minds to see if they can offer advice, inspiration or events your character can take part in. Also longer dialogue posts, see more below.

    >Character relationships: PM each other about ways to post conversations and build up relationships without having to resort to extremely short posts. Through PMing with each other you can each stay in character, you don't have to bunny and eventually (though please don't take too long) you build up a length of two posts or more (though don't overdo the dialogue) which you can split and each post a part of.

    >Another option is to ask permission to control the other character a tiny bit just so you don't always feel like you're talking to the walls or yourself. Also make sure to try and involve all of the RPers in the adventure, even if they're not Garage Kids but especially if they are (the virtual ones are an entirely different matter). Of course don’t include people if you ask them about it and they have other plans. Especially with the virtual characters they’re quite secretive (or destructive) and it’s pretty much guaranteed that they will act on other characters in Lyoko rather than react to what the Garage Kids do or Gabrielle does.

    >Read descriptions of characters, personalities and so on carefully so your character doesn’t look all startled when a perfectly normal person greets them, but is unfazed for some reason when a punk emo cheerleader robot ninja that’s unusually tall asks for your notes or appears from behind the virtual trees carrying a freakishly long axe with flaming baby heads. Hey, it could happen^^

    >Plot lines: we got a lot of characters and a lot of creative minds, so building the plot lines is a team effort (apart from the mission control stuff). To keep the thread tidy and relatively spoiler-free, PM each other about plotlines that concern that RPer's character. Always ask permission for things, try to agree on events to come and overall don't try to out-canon someone by saying his or her character was hallucinating or dreaming or just plainly ignoring what they typed. That includes their attempts to talk to other characters or influence an event or enemy for example. Working together is key in a Code Lyoko team RP, obviously. Time is of the essence though, so also try to not overly rely on others for your post. For people receiving such PMs, make answering them a priority so plot lines connect well and are built in a reasonable timeframe.

    > Furthermore I plan to, in the vein of the show, also play mission control outside of the character or partly in-character (so I could post more to regulate things) so the plotline is clear and the objectives as well, since the show was pretty linear as I remember it at least. That way it's way clearer what I'm trying to do (wasn't too smart of me keeping the mystery for the RPers as well as what would happen next:s). You can reuse your old posts in a way, though what you're supposed to do every post will be much more defined. I didn't want it to become constricted, but the other way didn't pay off either.

    > New rules and notes will be added when I think of them.

    > Have fun RPing!

    Note: Many thanks for Raiden193's reworked first post which seems much neater than my old one, so I will definitely use it, adding certain rules and the like in the same coherent manner^^

    Next, the sign-ups accepted thus far. (Sign-ups currently open for interesting applicants)

    Primary roles added, sort of for every character. Most of them pending and subject to change^^

    Sign-Ups:

    Name: Gabrielle Lafleur.
    Age: 17.
    Gender: Female (as I wanted a female Jeremy, nuff said)
    Primary Role: Mission control/operator/de facto leader

    Description and skills: She has long dark blonde hair from which shorter locks on her forehead spike in every direction. She has typical French features like thin arching eyebrows, an oval face, intriguing blue eyes and a pale skin with a healthy blush. She has a grey warm woolen sweater that hides her thin build and keeps her warm, a modest long blue skirt and comfortable shoes. Her feeble frame isn't athletic at all, but her nimble build and tactics allow her to be quite evasive and swift when she needs to. She stands at a bit less than six feet tall, which makes her stand out among most of her female classmates, though her gentle nature doesn't make her intimidating at all. She usually wears lenses to appear less nerdy, but it also makes her seem less intelligent, making people underestimate her both intellectually and in terms of her seemingly hollow and cheery personality. She has incredible skills in programming and is quite the tactician and multitasker. It could prove to be limited and she'll have to evolve her skills, knowledge and strategies as XANA does too. She'll be the operator, so no Lyoko form... for now

    Personality: She has a remarkable ability to pick out people with incredible depth or skill and always finds a way to cheer them up or motivate them, even when she suddenly uses sesquipedalian loquaciousness, like so. Upbeat and optimistic at most times, she gets very serious whenever she does something involving Lyoko, be it programming and developing the virtualization process or upgrades, working as an operator to the other Garage kids or being anywhere near the abandoned factory with the supercomputer. It's quite a sudden change and nobody quite knows how to react to it. It suggest she has a deeper, silent side she doesn't usually show to people. On the other hand, she can get quite distracted with seemingly trivial things.

    History: She's been living in France since birth and going to Kadic for as long as anyone can remember. Her cheery, then suddenly silent demeanor along with her 'uncool' programming skills and high grades hasn't earned her many friends, so nobody knows a lot about her. She's quite secretive about it too and it takes all her usual tricks to get the Garage kids together, a very odd mix of people, at first.
    Name: Taiyo Kosen (Means sun/light beam, she's from Japan like Yumi)

    Age: 16

    Gender: Female

    Primary Role: Original Garage Kid/coming soon

    Description and Skills:

    Appearance (Real World)- In the real world, Taiyo has shoulder length blond hair and blue eyes. Her usual outfit is an orange tank top with frills and gold colored shorts. On her feet are orange sandles. In the winter, she replaces the tank top with a long sleeved ruffled shirt, the shorts with long gold colored pants, and the sandles with orange boots.

    Appearance (Lyoko)- In Lyoko, Taiyo has fox ears and nine fox tails. She wears a golden ninja suit with white stripes and markings, and has a large sword with a golden handle and a pure white blade on her back. She also has crimson gloves on her hands.

    Skills (Real World)- In the real world, Taiyo is able to do amazing athletics, so she is very good at sports.

    Skills (Lyoko)- In Lyoko, Taiyo is once again athletic, and can use her sword to make beams or slash enemies. Her gloves allow her to make fire, and sometimes Taiyo can se this in conjunction with her sword. She can also make a sort of illusion, making her seem like something else (enemy, person etc.)

    Personality: Taiyo is a tomboy girl who plays sports a lot, mainly soccer. However, she is very loyal and kind, and will attack anyone who tries to hurt her friends. She also is very interested in Japanese mythology, especially about the kitsune, a nine tailed fox said to be able to shapeshift, inspiring her lyoko form. After school everyday, Taiyo goes to the library to study on myths.

    Strong-hearted, Taiyo is always training to make sure she doesn't fall into Xana's clutches. She cannot be easily possessed, due to her strong loyalty to the light.

    History: Taiyo was born in Japan, and her mother ran a shrine. She studied mythology, and was mostly interested in the kitsune. A fox lived at the shrine, and the two were good friends. Taiyo liked to pretend that the fox was a kitsune, and played with it everyday.

    Eventually, the family had to move to France due to her father finding another job there. Taiyo convinced them to take the fox with them, and they moved into a house very near her new school. Taiyo now just waits for excitement to happen. Boy, will she get her wish.
    Name: Joaquin Perez
    Age: 15

    Gender: Male

    Primary Role: Original Garage Kid/coming soon

    Description and Skills: Joaquin is an incredibly good reader and is assumed to be very smart and almost a goody. (goody two shoes.) But he is also good with technology if you need him he can do any technological or scientific thing! He also is good at building things and is very creative. His hair is Auburn with Blonde faded streaks in it. He wears a necklace with a Ruby on it. He usually wears a green vest with A Purple scratch like design through it. Under it he has a plain white T-Shirt with in black font: :3 and under that face it says kitteh face. Some people think it's tacky but he doesn't care. He has a ruby piercing on his right ear and also wears rust red Skinny jeans. His skills that he has is the ability of Ice. He can shoot shards of ice that stab people through their bodies. (6 shards at a time.) He also can make winds that are ice cold and freeze people with a single touch.
    Personality: Joaquin is very smart and sophisticated among his fellow mates who are very bad typers. He is very friendly to all and helpful. What he hides is, well he tries too but he is extremely clumsy. Thus, making him unlikable. He is somewhat quiet, but start a conversation, and you have a spicy conversation with a talkative boy!

    History: Joaquin may seem like a pretty normal nerdy kid but he had some troubles in his life. He was bullied throughout his whole life and tried to ignore it but it built up inside of him until he couldn't take it anymore and attacked the bully. He was expelled from his old school and sent to (Wherever Zekshirom is going.) He had to start a new life there, try to make friends. When he got to his new town he was given a parting gift from his only friend in the mail, A ruby necklace. He wears it all the time now. Soon he became in love with Rubies. He was also given a Ruby Piercing for his 15th birthday.
    Name: Béatrice "Bea" Éclat
    Age: 17
    Gender: Female
    Primary Role: Original Garage Kid/coming soon
    Description:
    Regular: In contrast to her general demeanor, Béatrice stands at a rather imposing 6-foot 3. Her pale-blonde hair is almost as long, but to keep it from flowing all over the place she commonly keeps it tied up with a scrunchie. Her bangs are luckily kept as they are, and for a bit of pizzazz they go "all zigg-zaggy" all the way to her ankles. Because her eyes are usually closed, one might miss out on the fact that they're a shade of chestnut-brown. Her normal attire doesn't attract too much attention; she usually sports a plain one-piece dress with rather large frills, and occasionally an oversized bow on her chest (Mainly to cover up her rather average breasts. >.<). Her brown flats are probably the most insignificant part of her outfit; her dresses tend to be long enough to touch the floor, so her shoes are out of sight most of the time.
    Lyoko: Bea's Lyoko attire is surprisingly brazen in contrast. Her hair is a more flashy shade of platinum-blonde, and it seems to spiral upward and around her head, creating a sort of upside-down drill. Her outfit seems to be some sort of lightweight silver battle armor with sharp shoulder-blades and emphasis on her breasts. Looooots of emphasis; wait, are they a couple of sizes bigger than usual? Bea's weapon is just as outspoken; she wields a giant battle hammer. While not being as heavy as one would think, it isn't the lightest weapon in the shed. Nonetheless, Bea is able to carry it ease. Almost.
    Skills:
    Regular: Bea doesn't like to think she has any special talents, and that's only half-right. She does seem to have a certain knack for storytelling, and frequently writes ideas for stories on her spare time. Right now, a lot of her ideas don't really tie together, so don't expect her to share anything with you. Her grades are also fairly reasonable for her age; she once tried setting up a tutoring service for the kids in her neighborhood, but this didn't skyrocket like she had hoped. Anything else...
    Lyoko: Even though wielding a giant hammer does make Bea's movement slower than the others, it's sheer force opens up a lot of possibilities for her. She can slam it into the ground and create cracks in the ground, or even cause rocks to spike up from the ground (varies by force). Supposedly, she can also spin it around with great agility, although this seems to disorient her heavily afterwards. Maybe she can use it... to fly?!
    Personality: Despite her rather menacing height, Béatrice is a rather soft-spoken person who can easily be missed. Her confidence issues are a major factor of her personality; that is, while in the real world. She often feels that she has nothing to contribute to Kadic, and is perfectly fine with blending in with the crowd. However, that isn't to say she isn't a caring and honest person. If she had friends, she would most certainly treat them like they were her own children... in the sense that she'd constantly put them first without thinking about her own well-being. When it comes to helping others out, normally one has to ask her directly for help; asking others if they need help doesn't fare too well for her, it seems. In fact, talking with her in general is like playing catch with a peach; anything that can be taken the wrong way will be taken the wrong way, and you'll soon find her sulking about it for the next few days.

    Perhaps her time in Lyoko gives us a glimpse of her true desires. In contrast to her "fragile flower" personality, she gladly takes the role of the resident powerhouse and charges through all her battles, despite being the slowest of the team. To her, the virtual world is a "mentally-stimulating distraction", and she commonly uses it to vent up bottled stress and expectations. Not letting her enormous weapon to slow her down, she's bound to find some way to utilize it from a distance. That isn't to say her worries from the human world don't conflict with her performance; I wouldn't be surprised if she was among the first to be possessed by XANA.

    Any glaring quirks... the only thing I can say is that she gets "a little upset" when you call her Bee-triss (aka Country Bumpkin) instead of Bay-a-trees (aka her actual name), to the point where she'll make sure to drill it into your memory. Of course, she'll use her usual soft tone when trying to do such.
    History: Bea was actually born in Scotland. Her dad unfortunately didn't have any luck with women, and as such Bea's mom skipped out on the both of them when she was a week old. This made her dad the unwilling black sheep of the family, to the point where talking about anyone's love-life around him was insanely taboo. In his quest for a stable relationship, he had gone through 9 relationships by the time Bea graduated elementary school, having rather awkward relationships with each one. Her dad's constant dating didn't get her any bonus points throughout middle school; in fact, and small cliques would occasionally spread rumors about Bea's family life (one notable example being that he was a "pimp"). When she was almost 14, her dad's sister called him up and offered him a room at her place in France (because "she felt lonely", apparently). Hoping he could rekindle his faith in love, he took Bea to France to live with her aunt. Too bad for him, this seemed to have the opposite effect; his sister had a tendency to drive away anyone he dated. Currently, he is still single, and despite not having a new "mom" Bea is still as awkward as ever.
    Additional: I'm using the French pronunciation of Béatrice, "Bay-a-trees". "Bea" also follows the French pronunciation of "Bay".
    Name: Diego Vendrix
    Age: 16
    Gender: Male
    Primary Role: Original Garage Kid/coming soon


    Description: He stands at five foot, 6 inches. He has low cheekbones, a boyish face, slight stubble, and wears a pair of glasses that darken themselves in bright sunlight. His hair is black with subtle patches of very dark brown, mainly in the tips. His hair is kept trimmed and neat, however the ends on the back of his head are messy and spiky. He has slightly bigger than average eyes, which are chocolate brown. His eyes are large enough that they are noticeably larger than average, even by a margin amount. His skin is a pale shade of olive skin that could be seen from his face.

    He wears a black T-shirt with a gold yingyang symbol on front and a white silhouette of Quetzalcoatl, portrayed as an Ouroboros with the crescent moon and sun in the center of the loop on the back. He has on some black cargo pants and black tennis shoes with a red spiral on them. He completes the ensemble with a gray fleece "M-44 Jacket". He also has on a digital watch with him.

    LYOKO Outfit and Skills: Diego wears a uniform similar to those worn from the movie TRON Legacy. THe suit is black with goldish colored lines. Besides the several lines are also several philosopical sayings written in either Latin, Japanese or Runic. Diego also has a gold-colored visor in front of his eyes.

    Diego has a few cool abilties. First is that he wields a large blowpipe, the type used for glass blowing. Diego is able to wield it like a staff. Secondly, Diego is able to create constructs such as walls, bridges, platforms or even certain items like keys with the blowpipe. The larger and more complicated the item, the longer it takes. He can only create a certain amount of glass so he usually sucks it back in when he is done. The glass is transparent but has a golden glowing hue.

    Personality: Diego is a warm and emotional person with an occasion fiery temper and an adventurous spirit. He is very empathetic and has a great desire to help people out. Beneath this outgoing personality, Diego is a shy and quiet person. He is also a very artistic individual as he will often draw whenever he gets the chance to do so. He is very loyal, but can come on as clingy, especially around girls. He also likes to cook. When in serious situations, he knows it is time for him to use his intelligence and strengths at their full capacity. He is very creative and known to be devious for his ideas. He is regarded as being very smart in many aspects.

    He has his faults, however. Some of these are being blunt, sarcastic, picking fights, laziness and often day-dreaming during certain moments and saying a weird comment afterward. He may also show some malevolent intent or hold grudges for a while. He may even show cruel moments, characterized by a crazed grins and shadows under his eyes. He is prone to snarky or blunt comments and is often unable to figure out what to do in situations with people so will often mess things up, though he means no harm. Despite this or because of it, he tries to overcome these traits so people don’t judge him on his faults and see him as a good person.

    History: He lived in the state of Georgia for a majority of his life with his family consisting of his father, mother and younger brother. He often has debated with his father, but has seen as one of his biggest inspirations in his life. He has a strong relationship with his mom, though him being a nerd and otaku often confuses her. He has a complex relationship with his brother. They argue a lot and often though see eye to eye. Although they look similar, they are nearly opposites in personality, with his brother having charisma, charm and good strength on him. However, his slothfulness is in school, resulting in debates with their dad. His favorite activity is being in the drum line of their old school.

    His memories in elementary are not well remembered, besides some bad events and a few good events. This trend grew worse in middle school where he was in the deepest of his misery in middle school. He had fallen in love only to be heartbroken 2 years later. His relationship with girls was not a happy one. Despite these troubles with his peers, he had formed a decent bond with them in high school. However, he still felt in heart a solitude he feared will never end.

    Near the holidays, his brother’s attitude, stubbornness and nonchalance about school finally reached peak with their father. After a good deal of arguing, his brother left home, only to come back because their mom. However, after a good deal of thinking, he decided to join a military school. This was at suggestion of a military teacher who was surveying students at the time. The expenses would be paid minimally over time and Diego’s brother would remain there until he graduated before moving onto the computing wing of the military. Diego then got invited to participate in a transfer student program. While someone goes to his home in the United States, he is going to a boarding school in France, Kadic Junior High School. Besides classwork, he practices kung-fu and staff fighting as a means to vent out frustration.
    Name: Silence Dogood
    Age: 17
    Gender: Female
    Primary Role: Future fighter for the Garage Kids

    Description and skills: Silence has a petite figure of height 1.46 metres. Her flat-chested yet curvacious body shape is feminine at first glance. Her left eye is a shining blue, whereas her right is hidden by a medical eyepatch. She has long, straight golden locks reaching down to her butt, styled in a well-maintained hime-cut. Her skin is white like snow, and is quite smooth as well. Her outfit consists of a jet black woolen turtleneck sweater and a checkered skirt with thigh-high translucent black stockings and black shoes.
    Her Lyoko avatar looks quite different. Her Lyoko avatar's appearance body-wise is almost the same, with the exception of having pure white instead of golden hair, and her eyepatch remains. She now has a tiny black tophat on his head, decorated with a white ribbon. This avatar is adorned with a black gothic-styled dress, ornamented with white ribbons all over and a rose on each sleeve. A big white ribbon can be seen at the back of the dress, along the waistline. She now wears black high-heels and black thigh-highs, along with long gloves. She can be seen carrying an umbrella.
    Silence is able to utilise both melee and ranged offenses. Melee offense is Silence's primary method. She is able to use her umbrella for offense, such as stabbing or slamming down on foes, or even hurling it like a lance. It can also be opened for defensive purposes, although the umbrella's offensive properties cannot be fully utilised in this state. In its defensive state, it can be utilised as a parachute.
    When her umbrella is lost through destruction or another method, Silence is able to unveil her eyepatch, revealing a demonic red eye. She can fire powerful demonic optic blasts from his eye in this state, although this demonic state is very hard to control and Silence might go berserk.
    Personality: Silence, as her name suggests, is absurdly silent. She is a lady of few words, and often shies away from those who question her too much. She is extremely ladylike, and treats people with respect when they deserve it. Despite having such a kind nature, she will not hesitate to resort to offense whenever necessary. She does not trust strangers at all. However, if you befriend her and get close to her, she will start to accept you as a close friend and trust anything you say. Silence is extremely brittle in reality. When she finds out that one of her friends have hurt her deeply, she will easily burst into tears. Silence is willing to help her allies in any way she can. It is rumoured that she has Asperger's syndrome.
    History: Silence was raised in a well-to-do family in England. Ever since she was but a child, she was extremely silent and rarely spoke a single word. She merely showed interest and curiosity in the things around her just like a little child. Her parents were extremely worried about her future, judging from such behaviour. Thus, they eventually moved to France.
    Silence's personality changed to be less curious and more self-centered, keeping to herself very often. One thing that never changed was that Silence was quiet as ever. This lack of social skills caused her to remain lonely for a very long time. Little does she know, she is never, ever alone...
    Name: Halt, which is all he remembers at this point. He calls himself D-Reaper now.

    Age: 17

    Gender: Male

    Primary Role: Data not found.

    Description and skills: Halt, back when he was part of the human world, wasn't the most impressive person to see. He was tall, reaching about six feet without trouble, and he was a little pudgy, about 156 pounds. He wasn't muscular, not was he thin. He was average, though his clothes beg to differ. For one, he dyed his hair neon green to make himself more noticeable as well as provide a beacon at night. It was that bright, though it was only a little joke that he and his only and very close friend friend often stated. His face was round, and his ears and nose looked a little small for his body, though again a joke his close friend often stated. His eyes were a deep emerald green. His normal clothes for school were a dark blue pair of pants with a black belt. The belt's buckle was a silver sun with a crescent moon along one side of it. His shoes were standard sneakers, being white with black stripes running down the outside of both sneakers. His usual shirt is a black t shirt, with the design of an angel lifting off on the front and an angel plummeting to its death on the back. Along the sleeves of his shirt are flat metal pins that he feels ads to his overall design of the shirt.

    After his accident in entering Lyoko for the first time, Halt no longer resembles his old self in mind, body, and appearance. His Lyoko form is heavily based from the grim reaper, but it was degenerated into this form, as did his mind from the constant exposer to Lyoko as well as the coding in such a universe. His body is covered in a black armor that while thin, can still provide mild protection. Along the armor are white raised decorations that are shaped like bones. This gives Halt a skeletal looks, and again improves along the grim reaper motif. His face is covered by a black mask, leaving holes open for his eyes. Speaking of his eyes, Halt’s eyes have been degraded, and are now bone white, with no pupils or iris in them. In order to be able to see, Halt has learned to see the coding inside of Lyoko. Xana troops are seen as red coding, Garage Kids have green coding, and normal zones and terrain are blue coding. He can’t see the Data Sea at all while a data grim reaper. His abilities stem from his scythe with a four foot long hilt that resembles black bones. The blade is silver, about a foot and half long, with the etching of an angel’s wing along it, the last piece of his original mind and body left. His abilities involve codes and the scythe. The scythe is able to ‘cut’ through certain codes and programs inside the beings of Lyoko. For example, Halt is able to reap the aggressive coding from a Xana bot, and from this, the bot is unable to be aggressive. Halt can take this one step further though, and reap the data from an entire zone. Halt has created a code that acts like LYOKO and XANA. Called REAPER, Halt is able to enter it into a zone’s tower and enter the code, and cause the zone to be deleted. It isn’t permanent, and the zone reloads after three days, clean and pure of outside influence. He can also fight with the scythe, and tends to aim for either cutting the legs out or tearing out entrails, something that will deal damage and inflict pain on those who register as ‘evil’ in the codes.

    Personality: Halt was a friendly kid back when he was a high school student. He liked to be a friend to others, and constantly strives to be a pillar or strength for others to lean on if they need help. He’s a nice guy, and never sees anything wrong with the world as long as he’s with his close friend. However, once they separate, Halt becomes very closed in and distant. It’s a bad habit of his, and he’s often called a baby because of it. Given his round face and large size, it makes sense, though it doesn’t make that any easier for him. He’s smart though, incredible smart, smart enough to be able to code himself into Lyoko with the help of the supercomputer. He and his best friend were the first two to every find the supercomputer, and while he doesn’t have the biggest sense of adventure, Halt is willing to do anything for his best friend.

    However, after a full year of being in Lyoko, Halt’s entire personality degraded. He’s become sadistic, enjoying the pain he causes those in Lyoko with his ever present scythe. If something living or a machine appears in his zone, the desert zone, he will find them, and he will take his time is harming them. He is in pain though, and when alone or deep in thought, he looks at his scythe, the angel wing etching specifically, and tries to think about….something. He no longer remembers what happened before first going into Lyoko, and all of his feelings kept pointing to a face. A face which he no longer remembers a name to. Who was she? Why did he feel so much yerning for her?

    History: Halt was born in Paris to two loving parents. From birth, Halt wasn’t the most popular kid. He had an older sister that often overshadowed him, a younger brother that demanded more attention, and he was just the modest middle child. For a while, about four years, Halt tried to get along with his siblings, but his sister, older by five years, was more occupied by her school and friends while his younger brother could barely talk. Halt, lonely, tried to talk to other kids at school, but again he failed. He was growing sadder when his now best friend decided to choose him as a friend. Halt would grow to enjoy her company, and even began to fall in love with her.

    During high school, Halt and his friend decided to skip school for a day in order to explore an abandoned factory which had more rumors surrounding it than the Slender myth that they bother enjoyed hearing about. While going through the sewer entrance, the two popped up into a large room with a large computer like structure. It took a few days, but they both figured out how to run the super computer, becoming the first two to discover it and Lyoko. Over the course of their freshmen year, they took turns sneaking out of the school, heading to the computer and working on special codes in order to enter the world of Lyoko. On the first day of sophomore year, Halt tested the code for entering Lyoko alone while his friend covered for him on the first day of school. Something went haywire, and he became stuck in Lyoko. Over the course of one year, Halt slowly became deranged and insane, losing his sight as well. He went dark in junior year, with a message being sent to his friend once a day at noon. A skull with a scythe behind it, and the word ‘REAPER’ tattooed across its head. It was a warning. Don’t enter Lyoko. Or the reaper will come for you.
    Name: Nancy Stone

    Age: 17

    Gender: Female

    Primary Role: Future fighter for the Garage Kids and/or co-operator and programmer (coming soon)

    Description: Nancy has shoulder length chestnut brown hair and parts it to her left side. She usually wears it down but she wears it up in a ponytail when she needs to. Her skin isn't very tan, but isn't pale either, so it’s a bit in the middle. She has mossy green eyes and is 5'5 and tends to wear jeans and a T-shirt, but she's not against dressing in a nicer shirt. Nancy also likes wearing her forest green jacket over a brown collared/non collared (it doesn't matter) shirt along with her tennis shoes. Although she may not be against dressing in fancy dress shirts, she often chooses comfort over outfits that are a pain in the neck to try and actually wear. If anything else, she carries around her backpack which has just about anything she could ever need in it. (i.e. power bars, water bottles, gum, flashlights, etc.)

    Lyoko: If you have ever seen the overcoats that the members of Organization XIII from Kingdom Hearts wear, than you know exactly how her appearance is. (I'll put a quick description of it anyway). A total black trench coat with black gloves and running boots to match. The coat has a hood that veils the owner's entire face unless otherwise stated and around the collar there are silver metal pieces that make a sort of necklace that lie above the zipper to the cloak. She'll wear the hood down, but will tend to pull it up when danger comes around. Her hair, although, is a braided bun unless pulled down otherwise and has reddish streaks going through her hair.

    Skills (real world): She is very good with technology but nowhere as skilled as Gabrielle is. She is also an able bodied runner and is good with solving puzzles, although she may get a bit frustrated if she can't figure it out in the time she wants. She isn't the strongest in terms of lifting and strength, but she has enough to keep her going and tries to think outside of the box. She is also quite good at stealth, since for the longest time she was an introvert and tried to sneak around people to get where she was going to without conflict.

    Skills (Lyoko): Her weapons are fire Chakrams (again, see Organization XIII, but more specifically, Axel's weapon). They are kind of like wind and fire Chinese wheels, except larger than what actual people are used to. She has two and can throw them, summon fire from them, create a fire storm with their speed, and throw them hard enough to eventually turn and come back to her. Like in the real world, she is good at stealth, except this time, she goes straight to the conflict.
    Since she can create and control fire, she can also create short-term fire shields using her chakrams and can also use one of her special abilities: Dancing Dragon. Dancing Dragon essentially allows her to use her agility and fire chakrams to try and avoid attacks all the while bringing a current of flame that gradually takes the appearance of a dragon. She could use this to surround and protect others if necessary, and eventually the dragon-esque fire will charge foward and consume the enemy in a final burst of flame.
    Maybe she has other abilities....maybe she has some that I can't think of right now...

    Personality: Nancy has had a difficult time trying to figure out who she is. Although she is kind and sweet, she is very indecisive at times and finds it difficult to choose something and be happy with it if others around her are not happy with it. She is, however, unrelenting in keeping her moral standards, but other than that, she is pretty shy. She loves making new friends, but the problem is that later these new 'friends' later begin to ignore her and move on, only adding to her self-confidence issues.
    In Lyoko, though, it’s like something totally changes. She may be conflicted with finding who she really wants to be, but she likes being underestimated so she can wipe the floor with any threat in the computer world. She will also try her best to deal with these threats in the real world as she grows and begins to feel comfortable in her own skin. She has always dreamed of adventure despite her usually quiet self and yearns to one day be someone who is happy go lucky but serious at the same time. She might just grow into this.....
    With her moral standard she would be most hesitant in anything Xana has to offer. She is also wary of the Garage kids at first, but if they ask her to join, she is more than sure enough to accept and pledge her allegiance to the cause.

    History: Nancy was born in the US, but moved to Europe when she was 10. Her father's job required a lot of moving, so they hopped around from Britain to Germany, Italy, back to Britain, and now France! In the course of the moving around for the past 7 years, she has come to hate change, as it happens so often to her now. She hopes that her father's job has settled down and now maybe she can actually try to make some long term friends and stay at a school longer than a year and some change.

    Nancy has grown very stubborn over these years since she's been mainly a book worm kind of person and no one else was really around to have an argument with her and say that she may've been wrong. She tries to keep a positive outlook though, seeing that life may just get better after all. Not long after moving to France, she was enrolled in Kadic Junior High School. She doesn't think much of her past since it’s not very dark and there wasn't really much to remember, jumping from country to country like she did.
    Name: Aim
    Age: Unknown but looks 15-16
    Gender: Male
    Primary Role: Warning: Data incomplete The Aelita/ roaming program?

    Description and skills: Aim’s in-game avatar is currently all he has, though he on the short side he built well though a little on the skinny looking side. His skin is light but has a little color and it lack blemishes. Glowing neon lights run across his body though it mostly hidden under his clothing one can sometimes see a faint glow from it. The most visible are two pair of lines on his face: two goes down from right under his blood red, slit pupil eyes and the other two goes up his cheeks toward his ears hidden under his long light brown bangs that frame his face. The other visible ones are on his arms going down toward his elbow and forming a little box just above his wrist. Other than the bangs mention the rest of his hair is short all around.

    From his back are six black feathery wings, the rest stationary and doesn’t move even an inch. A tight black and red top is buckled around his stomach and has no sleeve leaving his arms expose black pant are worn tight as well and has several red belts going around his legs and hip. Black and red boots on his feet reaches up is leg under the pants and the same color fingerless are just above his wrist. The finally parts of his outfit are a pair of goggles worn on his head and a long tatter red scarf that actually drags on the ground when he walks; he tends to hid half his face under it.

    Some of his skills include archery for offense in which he is an expert at sniping things from afar which is good since he has no close offensive skills. The six black wings on his back is actually his bow mounted on his back; it shoots laser arrows that seem to materialize when he pulls the string back. And if his archery is shutdown he has to use his other ability to hide himself. This ability works best when he is completely still, as his coding matching the surrounding making him invisible. He is less visible when moving but can be seen. He’s really knowledgeable when it is Lyoko involved but anything outside of that is a lost cause to ask him.

    Personality: Aim is a quiet and cautious boy at first meeting. It’s rare for him to let anything get close to him until he is sure it’s not dangerous to him. He is actually quick to trust another person that is able and willing to talk to him. An innocent and puppy like personality come out from him once he trusts a person; he gullibly believe anything told to him and he will loyal stand by and help that person. His curiosity of things he does not understand lead to the infamous wave of questions; half the time he doesn’t even understand it when it’s answered. When alone Aim goes into a serious, survival mode in which he focus on nothing else but watching out for danger. He is willing to attack something from a distance though he flees once it comes in too close. If he feels he is in serious danger without chance of escape he will attempt to hide from the enemy as he tries to get to the tower.

    History: Aim doesn’t really remember much other than roaming the world of Lyoko. It really seems like the only thing he has ever done. Things as of recently has been quite active there since the arrival of the D-Reaper quite a while ago. Xana has become more active and began pursuing him and he is unable to enter the desert area out of fear that he would have to fight the Reaper if he does. All he really does these days is goes from area to area, fend off some of Xana’s minions and hide in the towers when he need to; trying to remember his purpose.
    Name: Seth Fey
    Age: 16
    Gender: Male

    Primary Role: Garage Kids or XANA, coming soon!

    Description and skills: IRL he wears black pants and an orange shirt, with a black jacket over it. He has brown hair that is short cropped. He is very disorganized and owns a large number of books. He also has a birthmark on the back of his hand but he doesn’t like the way it looks so he usually wears gloves.

    In Lyoko he has 6 spears as his weapons, his powers help him to use them. His powers include causing gale force winds and smaller, more delicate winds that allow him to just levitate certain objects, such as his spears. He can use his wind to lift himself for a while but it greatly wears him out. He mainly uses his wind to throw his spears with deadly accuracy or to cause wind storms that affect the entire sector. As to his appearance he has long spiky brown hair, and wears a black jumpsuit. The jumpsuit has a few noteworthy features : it has orange "wings " underneath the arms to help him catch the wind easier, it has a red stripe going down the length of his back and the whole thing is covered in small scales that can open up to help catch the wind.

    Personality: Seth is a bookworm but is studying archeology and longs to go and explore ancient ruins. He is usually very careful but will get excited when he is close to is target. He loves to read sci-fi books and is always looking for a way to have adventures like the ones that he reads about. He also thinks that strange ruins might point towards extraterrestrial life. He is very calm but will get excited about the prospect of adventure. His weaknesses include: His fear of scorpions, he is very trusting of everything and he will put himself in danger to prove a point.

    History: After His best friend died while exploring ancient ruins Seth, dedicated his life to archeology. His parents sent him away to school, and he didn’t want to go, so there is some strain between them. His girlfriend recently left him for a football player and he thinks that if she left him then she didn’t deserve him anyway. And he has a pet iguana, named Rolo, that he takes with him almost everywhere, but recently people have expressed dislike to the creature so he has been leaving it at his room more and more. He also has an older sister named Susan, but she recently vanished, the police gave up looking for her.

    And with that, this RP begins with a great number of RPers;) Let's how that goes. The story begins in the second post, also by me xD I exceeded the characters limit.

    Code Lyoko: Opposing Forces


    The screen lit up. Finally, she'd got it working again. On the screen her detection programs showed that this monstrosity could attack at any moment and when it did, toasters chasing people and trying to fry them would be the least of their problems. When this malevolent entity gathered his power and concentrated it in the nearest power outlet, strange and dangerous things happened. It could no longer be stopped and the young girl sitting in the big chair had her own reasons for not simply shutting down the supercomputer. She needed to find people to help her fight this... XANA, as time was running out.

    Using the local sewer system, the young girl arrived at her high school, Kadic Academy located in a suburb of Paris. Her name was Gabrielle Lafleur, she was 17 years old and nobody really knew a lot about her. At first glance seeing her blonde hair and high stature, you'd think she was a slightly intimidating angel, perhaps a bit dumb-witted one. She wasn't scary at all though once you tried sitting next to her in class. She always got good grades, which earned her a lot of jealousy, so she kept to herself a lot. She used to have friends, put people couldn't remember where they'd gone and left her behind, alone studying and sitting behind a computer almost all day.

    When you asked her for something however, she reacted quite cheery and she always seemed to be optimistic. Still, she tried not to show her intelligence for fear of remarks about a smart towering blonde girl. All in all, she'd stand out a lot when she would start her search. Her search for warriors in the fight against XANA... and other threats. As she put a lock of her hair behind her right ear, she looked around for people. She'd pick them out soon enough with her uncanny ability to recognize incredible depth and skill. Putting all those individuals together and getting them to get along with each other, that would be much harder.

    Delta Hunter The G-Rank MH

    D-Reaper
    Desert Zone

    Everything is normal. Everything is fine. D-Reaper remembered those thoughts faintly. It was when he decided to enter this world for the first, and last, time. He kept saying it would work, that he'll see his...who? D-Reaper looked over the vast blue coding. It was all numbers and letters. Nothing more, anything but less. It was the lifeblood of Lyoko: the coding was near infinite for each zone. D-Reaper preferred to roam the desert zone. It lacked trees and rocks that he might have difficulty seeing. With this new way of seeing the world, he could find ways to hurt it. Hurting the world was what gave him the most joy, and even then it faded like the XANA bots that tried to fight him. They would always try to stop his reaping, but it always ended with them dead, lying on the ground. Sometimes he would have fun, and reap the coding in them that intiated their agressive protical. In other words, they lacked the ability to fight back. They would stand there, unable to fight or move, and let him crush with his scythe. D-Reaper grinned at the thought.

    He looked around the landscape again. Nothing different here. After the last reaping of the zone, XANA got wise and left it alone for the most part. D-Reaper leapt off the rock, landing perfectly with his black armor catching the last rays of the sun. The white embossed bones along the armor looked eye catching, but nothing that gave him an edge. It was the scythe that D-Reaper carried that gave him his name. It was four feet long at the shaft, designed to appear like black bones. More for the image, he liked to say. The blade though was no show and all damage. It was a foot and a half of silver steel, curved slightly and prepared to reap anything that crossed the D-Reaper's path. He cut the air before him, and a hole tore itself in the fabric of the coding. He walked in. He had a forest to inspect.

    InnerFlame Fire and Ice Combo

    Aim
    Forest Zone


    It was mostly silent except of the occasional buzzing through forest. There were flying creatures flying around, patrolling, searching and once they decided the area was empty they flew off. As a group of three left the area, another presence appeared: a boy with light brown hair. His red eyes look in the direction in which the Xana's minions went before he bolted off in the other direction on the narrow forest path. Though he wasn’t sure why, but Xana seem more activity these days. And his pursue of him, a being merely known as Aim, seem to be more persistent. Why did Xana want Aim, he was unsure but it was embedded somewhere in him that he must not be captured.

    He came to a halt as he stopped short of one of the towers and took cover behind a tree. Three more of Xana’s Hornets were flying around. It seemed these ones weren’t going to leave the area and his power to stay hidden isn’t as good when he was moving, so he had no choice but to eliminate them. He reached toward his back which had three pairs black wings protruding out from it. They all moved together into his hand to be seen as a winged bow. He drew back on the string, took aim, and fired. The string snap back to its natural position and a laser arrow flew through the air and right on his target. It was destroyed and the other two became alert. Not know anything but the direction it came from they started coming towards him. He shot two more times killing one while the other manage to dodge, and started firing in his general direction. It got lucky and hit him. Aim quickly shot one more time before it got too close from him to fight him off. Luckily it was defeated, and Aim made a rush for the tower. If he stuck around too long reinforcement would arrive.

    Touching the outer surface of the white pillar, the boy phased though the wall. The area inside was dark with bright blue windows over every free inch of the cylinder structure. He walked down a white path to a platform with some kind of strange symbol on it. He sat down and let out a sigh. In this place he was safe from Xana’s reach and he could probably stay here forever in peace. But he knew nothing would come of it but an isolated meaningless existence. Why was here, what was his point of being here on Lyoko; those were the questions he desperately wanted to know. No matter how much he searches through the tower’s mainframe it seems he lacked the ability to find it. So all he could do was roam and hope to find some hint, some clue. That search would have to wait; he was going to rest for a moment for his points to be restored before resuming his exploring.

    I'll update this space down here with my latest post.

    In the classroom there were plenty of people that tried to stand out, but few did in the way Gabrielle appreciated and more specifically, needed for her plan. She had to stop XANA and sort out her own issues along the way and for that she needed strong and capable fighters. In the ‘Première’ or the 11th grade or ‘juniors’ year of Kadic Academy, there seemed to be an utter lack of motivated students as if life had already decided what would become of them and they would either slack and narrowly pass or excel at the highest level. Then she saw the two of them on almost opposite sides of the classroom. Possible members, yes yes, this could work…

    After Lunch Gabrielle had a free period and so went to the benches looking out onto the tracks where a senior class was having P.E., or boot camp when Jane Moralés was teaching it, the resident teach-it-all-know-nothing teacher. Apparently he was in charge of detention and wasn’t quite pleased about it, making it extra hard on those having to go there practically every day of the week, but Gabrielle couldn’t know for sure. Her trying to be invisible made it that she never ended up there. Or she didn’t even notice she had to and happened to move to just the right classroom while she made her homework or studied… it. That strange dot that seemed to appear and disappear every time one of XANA’s creatures was walking around. It stayed away from them and even more so from ‘him’. Whatever both the strange dot and ‘him’ did, they had managed to keep XANA at bay for quite a long time, but time was exactly the thing they were running out of. They needed support, a true, cooperating team. And Gabrielle would find it.

    She saw the long senior girl that shyly combed her pale-blonde hair with her hands as Ms. Moralés reprimanded a few slackers, which was most of the class. She didn’t seem to do much as well, but like Gabrielle the girl was easily missed despite her height. She blended in with the crowd, yet she looked very caring and honest when she smiled. Once in a while, she would flash with her eyelashes and you could barely see her chestnut brown eyes which she avoided eye contact with, but Gabrielle saw it as she moved closer without anyone taking notice.

    Béatrice Éclat was her name, as Gabrielle had already found in the school database she hacked and saved on her laptop, heavily ‘encrypted’ and ‘guarded’ so it would never be found on it. She seemed so soft-spoken and was easily rubbed the wrong way, making her quite akward because of that and other things that couldn’t be read off her behavior like this. Could she move a bit closer? Having little friends couldn’t have helped Béatrice much. She didn’t talk to anyone and nobody seemed to address her or even notice her. This was an interesting person, could she have a hidden side that made her a possible and brazing leader for the team Gabrielle wanted to form?

    Just a bit closer… before Gabrielle realized, she fell over and smacked into the pavement with her laptop. Luckily, it was still intact, but her clumsy behavior had surely turned a few heads. As she got up, she looked up shyly at the class. All of them, including the slackers who had made Ms. Moralés’ attention get redirected at Gabrielle, looked at her, most of them trying not to laugh. Silly juniors, they whispered to each other. Gabrielle only saw Béatrice, who looked down. Had she noticed Gabrielle looking at her? Better take her aside and ask her to meet her in the woods before Ms. Moralés shooed ‘the silly junior’ away even if Gabrielle had no class to attend.

    Gabrielle walked towards Béatrice and tried to say or gesture for the senior girl to follow her. Before even checking that the girl followed her, Gabrielle said: “I was wondering if you were interested in joining a special group. We need your help. Join us in the woods at the old rusted car.”


    So yeah, the others haven’t posted, so I’m assuming they didn’t have time, which is fine for just this once. If you still want to RP, please post as soon as possible and you may take limited control of Gabrielle to set up a conversation in which you ponder taking Gabrielle up on her offer to join the team and meet the others in the woods at the old rusted car. Any ideas you have, feel free to PM me or post a visitor message.

    Thanks for posting those that did. For deltakurumiru4 and InnerFlame, I don’t have a concrete idea for your storyline, so feel free to post what you want to post and/or brainstorm with me or each other^^ For Raiden193, I set up a first conversation with Gabrielle (if that’s okay) so she will (probably) join the Garage Kids and possibly lead them, who knows. If you have something else in mind, do say so and I’ll change my post^^. If you want to go with the conversation, I suggest showing Béatrice’s personality in how she reacts to the strange question out of the blue and what she plans to do, her doubts and so on. This I can’t direct a lot, since you have to decide how/if Béatrice comes to join the Garage Kids, why, when and so on. When she’s going to join them, it’s however best to end with how she sneaks away from Kadic to go into the woods and arrives at the designated spot and Gabrielle leads all that came to the factory and the main plot kicks in.

    Ansem the wise, Samantha Sparks and Cometstarlight are all welcome to apply for a Garage Kids spot as Zekshirom and Chili have other matters to attend to and cannot fill those spots (they can always join later if something changes and they still want to RP:D). All of you can apply, better to have one Garage Kid too ‘many’ than only two or three. DVB had homework, but I’m not sure if he’s still gonna RP, that remains to be seen.

    If you’re considering posting, but you don’t for a reason, please notify me and if it turns out a regular posting schedule can’t be done, so be it. But I won’t let the other RPers wait;) those that haven’t posted yet, please do if you do want to RP, let me know if you don’t want to or can’t RP anymore instead of saying nothing; those that have, keep up the good work:D

    So we have deltakurumiru4 and InnerFlame doing their own subplots (the latter intertwining soon with ours as we fight to the first tower that has to be deactivated somehow and through a newfound alliance, luck or a combination), me/Gabrielle acting as the operator/Jeremy, Raiden193 being the first Garage Kid (unless that has changed) and the others… pending.

    DEADLINE: In ONE week I’ll post again and in posting and furthering the plot, I intend to keep up the pace. If anyone suggests a further deadline date like say two weeks, I’ll lengthen it and edit this post so it counts for every future post. If nobody makes a mention, after one or more deadlines have passed, I will consider some as having other things to do, but I won’t wait for the people not posting unless they ask me to make an exception, which I won’t make that often.

    EDIT: Can't shake the feeling I forgot to mention something, thoughts?

    Note: My post is only this long because of all kinds of notes and setting up the plot, so other posts don’t need to be as long as providing the framework gives me this volume, not content, yet:)

    I’m assuming people don’t quite know what to post… or they’ve given up on this RP; anyway, I’ll continue as promised for those that still want to RP and I’m guessing they’ll post soon^^ If I went and posted something vague that reading it back I don’t even quite get, please call me on it:p then I can fix it and you can post and have fun. Without further ado, moving onto the main plot.

    Gabrielle looked around. What was keeping them? Did they decide not to come? She’d wait a little while and then she’d better get going. Her scans indicated it wouldn’t be long before the ‘XANA’ program would make its move. Its troops were already invading the forest area, a virtual representation of the ordinary habitat of the real world. But it wasn’t home to docile, small or hiding creatures. No matter what, you’d get swarmed by things that could turn out to be almost twice as high as you. Even knowing that, Gabrielle still wanted to go there and take action herself to reinforce the team, a team whose several members were late…

    One by one, the happy, but slightly weirded out few that had responded to her question appeared from the woods and hesitantly stepped into the open place with the manhole cover in the middle. Gabrielle nodded to the others, took off the cover and descended with the others quickly following and the last one closing the manhole so nobody would be the wiser should they come to the open place moments later.

    There weren’t as many as Gabrielle had hoped, but she’d speculated on the use of the ‘back to the past’ sequence she’d found. All those that weren’t sure they’d join the team or take a great risk in joining and possibly back out, would possibly not even remember Gabrielle had ever asked them something. But time travel wasn’t possible, was it?

    She thought about it some more until everyone had descended into the sewers that would lead to their mysterious destination, which someone would probably inquire about, but she hesitated to give in to their questions, as it would mean explaining that seemed impossible… and deadly terrifying. Gabrielle flicked on her flashlight and led the way. She had told most people to bring a quicker form of transportation, she thought and so she buzzed along with her trusty kick scooter.

    She awaited questions that she could answer, almost anything except where they were going and what the team was really getting into.

    Note: If there really is no other way, I will see to it that I create more Garage Kids along with people that ‘want one’, so to speak. Anyway, the plan is that people try to figure out if what they want to do is what they’re gonna do in the team, for example, if they can lead, follow, improvise, make friends, whatever reason they were so ‘crazy’ to join. Getting to know your team members can be an option, but ask the other person for permission first so you can type a good medium-length post instead of typing two sentences and then waiting for the other respond. Don’t completely control the other character, but you don’t have to build up a conversation through many, many posts. PMing each other is an option or agreeing in a few lines on what your character will say or won’t say when you try to get to know each other. Not getting along at all at first can be funny, having a seething rivalry is optional, one having a crush on the other, anything is possible really. Gabrielle can be controlled almost freely, apart from letting her say anything concrete or shocking about the supercomputer, XANA, the virtual programs and so on. She’ll be intentionally vague about it and the exact goals of the team.

    Describing the team’s purpose (in terms of forming a tight group (friendship:p?), being a sort of club combating ‘all kinds of things’) or why the Garage Kids were each chosen, the goal being the abandoned factory, Gabrielle’s skills, her behavior at school, the skills the Garage Kids will need and so on, will be freely given by Gabrielle, though I offer these as suggestions for what to talk about to Gabrielle without me having to write each character’s dialogue with her, though that is possible… if I know that people other than Raiden193 and the two virtual characters are going to post. Don’t hesitate to PM, put a note in your post, post a visitor message or anything you think of if you’re stuck on something, disagree, want to add, something to be changed, contact me:D Oh and have fun RPing;)

    Deepest apologies I couldn't get this up earlier. x.x

    S00per smelleh sewers
    After school


    The sewers were.... smelly.

    Uh-huh, smelly was a good word.

    They certainly live up to their, uh... ... sewer heritage?

    Bea realized that although she could manage avoiding eye-contact with everyone else, she would have quite a difficult time getting the sewer stench out of her nostrils. As for why she was walking with a bunch of kids from Kadic through an underground sewer canal... she didn't know. At the very least, she couldn't yet understand the underlying circumstances behind their journey.

    It started back in PE, when Mrs. Moralés was busy scolding the majority of her class for being lazy bums. Being a social introvert, Bea couldn't help but avoid eye contact with everyone else by closing her eyes. It wasn't necessarily a special ability, but Bea found that she could hear a lot better without her sight. Above the teachers loud ranting, she could hear the footsteps of people with spare periods walking around, the clicking and clacking of a laptop keyboard, the constant chatter of younger girls... wait, keyboard? Bea opened her eyes and attempted to scout for the foreign sound, which wasn't all that far away.

    Bea located a besweatered girl typing away at her laptop, looking as if she was deeply rooted into whatever she was doing. Every now and then, the girl would glance up and survey... goodness, was she looking directly at Bea?

    Lookaway, lookaway, gottalookaway and stu- eeee, she's getting closer, um, um, um-

    Never before had she met a person this interested in her; Bea's thoughts became so severely confuddled that she didn't notice the girl falling over and making a ruckus. When she did zone in again, the girl was pretty much right next to her. Bea froze in a rather awkward position. Looking at her closely, this girl appeared to be as old as her, with dark blonde hair and loose ends aplenty. She was only a bit shorter, making Bea feel some sort of kinship towards her, but only for a second. Then;

    “I was wondering if you were interested in joining a special group. We need your help. Join us in the woods at the old rusted car.”

    "o-okay."

    And thus, she was here. In this dark, smelly sewer tunnel. Running, because she forgot to bring a quicker method of transportation.

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    As she had nothing better to say;

    "u-um. . . i beg your pardon, le petite fleur, but what did you say. . . your name was. . . again?

    "Le petite fleur"? First, petite was the feminine form of the verb; second, she grimaced as she picked up on the idiosyncrasies of her story characters. Already flustered and out of breath, she fast-walked and avoided eye contact for the rest of the trip.

    Sewer Network
    After School


    Diego had his fingers to his nose as he was walking through the sewers and he was wondering once more why he was here. Diego looked around at the few other kids that was around ad wondered what was it they were thinking also. He smiled at all of them as he still had his fingers to keep himself from smelling the odor here.

    He recalled how he ended up here.

    Diego was in PE and dealing with the annoying P.E. teacher. He was getting bothered by he rambling though he turned to Bea, who he kinda liked. She seemed like a nice person.


    Diego saw a besweatered girl typing away at her laptop, looking concentrated. Every so often, he look at either Bea or him.

    Diego saw her talk to Bea for a little bit before she came over to talk to him too.

    “I was wondering if you were interested in joining a special group. We need your help. Join us in the woods at the old rusted car.”

    Diego nodded as he smiled at her.


    Diego shook his head. "So what exactly is the surprsie that awaits at the end of the rabbit hole?" Diego asked her.

    Thanks you guys^^ Who knows how things will go now I kick off the main plot, but let us hope:D Without any further ado...

    Last note: Bea is 17, but she's doing her senior year because her birthday's in the summer. Gabrielle is 17, but isn't in her senior year. Diego is 16, so how can he be in the same class as Bea? Of course,
    you can tell me to change Diego's age to 17 or 18, that he takes PE a class higher, he had a free period and decided to blend in to talk with Bea or something else^^ Just thought I'd note the discrepancy, but don't take that as a reason to quit! Yeah... just saying:s Oh, wasn't your last name Vendrix? … My incessant editing isn’t helping, is it:s


    Gabrielle wasn’t sure if Diego was talking to her or Bea, but she was inclined to respond to his question nonetheless. She was like that.

    “It wouldn’t be a surprise if I told you, but then again, it isn’t really a surprise…” she said as she stopped at an intersection.

    Five sewer pipes connected at the spot and you could tell by the incessant smell. Nobody would want to stay here for long and perhaps it wasn’t the smartest idea to stop here, but Gabrielle didn’t really care. She’d grown accustomed to the smell…

    “Do any of you want to fight for something? To work together to become something more and do something important?” Gabrielle said. “If you don’t, turn back now and forget this ever happened.”

    Some people immediately nodded, others did so because someone right next to them did. A longing for friendship, a crusher… it could work to the group’s advantage or expose them all.

    “This club and everything concerning it is top secret, understand?” Gabrielle said.

    Everyone nodded now.

    “Can we go now?” someone said. They couldn’t bare the stench anymore.

    Gabrielle had gotten used to it because… she’d spent quite some time in it. Without saying anything else, she turned around the corner and started climbing a hidden ladder, all the way to the top. The others got up where Gabrielle waited for them and they looked around. They were in an abandoned factory on the edge of town. Nobody ever came near to the place because people said it was haunted. Were they here to be fed to the ghosts and was this girl their willful, insane pawn? Or were they supposed to bust them by crossing the beams?

    “Screw this, I’m outta here,” Sidney, the principal’s son said and made a run for it.

    Another person tried to stop him, but Gabrielle said, while thinking the back to the past button better work:

    “Leave him. We don’t want to force anyone. For all of you, you either leave now or you stay and keep the secret of the club. Anyone?”

    Nobody moved, but they didn’t seem comfortable with the situation, not in the slightest.

    “Fine, I’ll turn around, step into that elevator and close my eyes. I won’t open them until we arrive at our destination. Yes, that elevator is in working order. When I say it is.”

    Gabrielle did as she said and waited a bit before saying:

    “I was thinking to name this group the Garage Kids, seems quite catchy.”

    She didn’t hear anything before she pressed the button of the elevator. Was anybody still there? If they were, they were awfully quiet. They arrived and she opened her eyes.

    “Go into the machines,” she said. “And let the adventure begin. We’re going to the forest area.”


    A dark presence stirred. Finally, this world would tremble before its power.

    Gabrielle went up with the elevator and sat down in her chair to begin the ‘virtualization’ process. She pressed the button. This better work. Wait, who had remained with her? People had been virtualized, but what about the others? Were there others?

    “If there’s anyone there, head to the tower, there isn’t much time.”



    That’s up to any of you! There is tons of material to type for Code Lyoko fans or enthusiasts about the supercomputer, the virtual world, the virtual sea, the dangers of fighting XANA, the enemies (or new ones), their virtual appearance and powers, Gabrielle explaining how Lyoko works and what XANA is, desires, can do and will do if he isn’t stopped (character control allowed to give exposition, didn’t do it in this post because it’s already quite long AND you can accustom what you want Gabrielle to explain to your character’s questions). Most importantly, it’s the group’s first mission, so there will be some adjusting, failing, triumphing and possibly action! Make your way to the tower people!

    Note: Those that are doubting, can go fight XANA’s threat in the real world and be subject to the back to the past button, after which those characters can still be convinced to fight as a Garage Kid and have their memory preserved. Or, be a ‘Sissi’ or ‘Jim’ occasional helper as in the original series.

    Those that are sure, are virtualized and fight XANA’s monsters. The virtual characters (Halt and Aim) will now be either a threat or have the Aelita lite role (through a semi-random encounter perhaps?).

    If there are a lot of Garage Kids, some of them can stay behind on purpose; in real life; to protect Gabrielle or the school (where they have to go to; in the second mission they can be virtualized so their memory is preserved or something) against XANA’s threat, the first one since Halt is finally occupied for some reason and XANA can sneak past him.

    Before, the supercomputer was already active (causing XANA and Aelita in the original universe to immediately play the game of creating a threat and countering it with the immediately formed Garage Kids), but the aggressive and extremely powerful ‘Halt’ and Gabrielles efforts disabled XANA’s attacks already in the supercomputer for some time, allowing Gabrielle to gather the Garage Kids in the meantime. The cause that XANA can know launch a threat just in time as the Garage Kids are formed, can be thought up in due time by all of us:)

    DEADLINE in ONE week, unless some people ask for two weeks, but for now I’m trying to minimize the delays, while avoiding triple posting:s

    I'll try to explain where I'm going with all of this with a 'dream' of Gabrielle that is out-universe an example of my proposed mix of Gabrielles exposition (character control allowed), being puzzled by the virtual world and their virtualisation and quickly fighting XANA's monsters as they make their way to the tower. In-universe, it's a twisted dream in which Gabrielle wished she could stop XANA all by herself.

    “Virtualization process started. It won’t hurt, I think.”

    “What do you mean, virtu, you think, what?” Gabrielle said as the cylinder closed around her. How could she trap her, she wanted to be a hero, but now she was forced like this…

    “It’s the only way… to save the world. If you really told people what this was all about, none of them would want to leap into danger like that unless they weren’t in their right mind. You saw that they were heroes and they could save everyone if they were given no other option than to fight XANA. Maintaining secrecy to save the world, comes with some deception, lies and trickery.”

    Gabrielle closed her eyes as her dark blonde hair flew upwards and she bathed in a white light. Then, she disappeared.

    She opened her eyes as the wires formed the rest of her body under her and she became clad in sturdy looking armor. As soon as she was completely formed, she fell down to the ground and she stood up. She was in a forest that stretched as far as the eye could see. Not a creature was stirred, which was another way of saying that it was deadly quiet. Why was that… And why did she get the feeling she wasn’t in the real world anymore.

    “This is Lyoko, a virtual world inside a supercomputer that got activated. It contained this beautiful forest area and other habitats, but it also harbored something far more malevolent and powerful. An AI called XANA. Up till now, we managed to subdue it, but as time ran out, it broke through every defense and now it is launching a threat in the real world that will take many lives. Unless you stop him, both here in the virtual world and the real world. You played videogames right? It’s very similar. Don’t fall in the digital sea. Dying devirtualizes you, but it also removes you from this mission so don’t go Rambo on this, it won’t work. Your opponents however, work a little bit different.”

    A horde of creatures the size of dogs, but resembling mechanical crabspiders with a peculiar symbol around their big glowing red eye appeared from behind the trees and something told Gabrielle that the glowing red signal was a very bad sign. She looked to her side and saw a weapon. That’s all she needed to know. If anyone dies in the real world, then… What does the back to the past button do… What is virtualization… All that didn’t matter for now, they just had to work together and get to the tower… But that wouldn’t stop people from asking. Who knows, it could offer them unexpected advantages.

    D-Reaper
    Forest Zone

    The Forest Zone. For many, it was a flood of green and brown from the multiple trees that covered it's surface. The thick vergatation made it difficult for even the hard core jungler types to get loss and have an *** time navigating. D-Reaper had an even worse time because of his eyes. What looked like green and brown to others was all blue coding for him. However, it also gave him the chance to find anything not part of the territory much easier. For instance, the XANA bots had delicious red coding. Too bad for D-Reaper they didn't bleed that same color of coding, they just died, no challenge. It was better than a tough stringy...human, would it be? D-Reaper's train of thought was inturrepted when he walked straight into a large tree. He growled, and slashed the coding with his scythe. It sent right through the tree, but the coding had been reaped. Suddenly, the structure coding snapped, and the tree become intangible. He continued on his way to the large grey coding of the tower, in order to start his reaping.

    Suddenly, a large group of bots rolled out from the forest, knocking down several trees. D-Reaper ran around the trees, and threw his scythe like a boomerang. It cut through the legs of two box XANA bots, before stabbing itself into a large ball that had just started to seperate. Sparks sputtered out from the large ball, but before it could close again, D-Reaper fell upon it again, his scythe cleaving through the helpless victem once more. The ball opened again, but the damage had been done. The ports for the lasers had been closed, and the ball backfired into itself, exploding in a spectacular boom. D-Reaper himself stood in the explosion, letting the billowing flame lick around his form, casting it's shadow across the trees.

    "Is everyone alright?" Gabrielle said.

    She hoped more than anything that after all this hassle, the deception she had gone through, these people were still alive and intact, albeit virtual.

    "What the heck..." it sounded as someone studied himself and the truth slowly crept in: they weren't in France anymore. "What did you do to us!"

    "I'm sorry for not telling you the whole truth, but it was the only way to assure the adults never find out about this, lest they shut off the supercomputer below and everything in it is lost. I need you to go turn off the tower in this forest area, lest XANA destroy our world by releasing a very real threat in it. I"ll explain on the way. This is Lyoko, a virtual world inside a supercomputer that got activated. It contained this beautiful forest area and other habitats, but it also harbored something far more malevolent and powerful. An AI called XANA. Up till now, we managed to subdue it, but as time ran out, it broke through every defense and now it is launching a threat in the real world that will take many lives. Unless you stop him, both here in the virtual world and the real world. You played videogames right? It’s very similar. Don’t fall in the digital sea. Dying devirtualizes you, but it also removes you from this mission so don’t go Rambo on this, it won’t work. Your opponents however, work a little bit different. Destroy them with the weapons your mind chose along with your natural and virtual abilities. I... What is...”

    That signal, could it be him? Why had he left the desert area, did it know what was coming?

    Then, a horde of creatures the size of dogs, but resembling mechanical crabspiders with a peculiar symbol around their big glowing red eye appeared from behind the trees.

    "XANA sent a horde of his programs, resembling unusual monsters, they're very dangerous. He isn't going at us in our first run, not one little bit, so give it all you've got. Hit them in the XANA symbol for critical damage. I'll guide you to the tower."

    There was a problem Gabrielle hadn't given enough thought. Once they got to the tower, how were they going to inactivate it. They needed something that could interact with the tower, a virtual program, an entity...

    Aim
    Forest Zone


    Quickly but stealthy, Aim traveled quickly through the zone. Something was happening and he was compelled to find the source. He ducked to the side as a large group of Xana’s minions came barreling through the forest towards something. This was different from before, they were not patrolling but in full out assault mode. Along with that were the signs that somewhere a tower had been activated. From his location it was faint and not nearly strong enough to easily pinpoint though the forest was definitely where it was. And he knew if he walked the path enough for him to find it for certain. Maybe this commotion is just what he needed to find his answers.

    He abruptly paused, there were several odd beings he never seen. Humanoid like himself, and they did not visibly contain the mark of Xana. Where did they come from; he wondered. This was much like when the D-Reaper appeared here… He couldn’t trust them as they too could be dangerous. Aim crept closer stopping completely in his tracks when he thought one of them had spotted him. They looked to themselves and at one another confused before a voice from someone unknown spoke. She spoke about many things along with Lyoko which was common knowledge to him, but how did that person know such info.

    A horde of Krabs popped in and that voice pointed out their weakness with ease as well mentioning the tower… The tower was important to them and Xana so he decided that's where he had to go. Firstly he had to get around them and Xana’s minions. Easier said than done, even with them fighting the chance him sneaking around such a large group without being even a little undetected was slim. Aim would have take it slow and choose his moment… But for now he would carefully follow and observe the people.

    To everyone following this topic, if you're a RPer, participate and if you like this RP, think about joining it.

    It could be that everyone's having school work and other stuff to attend to,
    hence why I didn't post for a while as the story can't really continue if nobody posts (except those that have, who have my greatest thanks).

    If no Garage Kid is left to RP besides me, I will redistribute the roles amongst the remaining RPers. If even the virtual characters and such don't want to RP anymore, I'll turn this into a fanfic, because otherwise it would become pretty ridiculous. If the silence remains both here and on my profile and in my PM inbox, I'll take it this RP is finished.

    I'll contact everyone that was still participating just to be on the safe side, because I'd really hate to see this thread stop so quickly before even picking up steam. That being said, if you procrastinate, well, it seems everybody will follow your lead and procrastinate, leading to no posting being done at all. If you've lost interest, that's okay, but do tell me. If no one at all lets me know anything for a whole week, I'll ask to close this thread, because I myself am done procrastinating if I'm really just postponing the inevitable. If it really is inevitable that is?

    OOC: sorry about not posting, I just kinda of forgot about this RP to be honest. I'll keep going for sure though.

    D-Reaper
    Forest Zone

    XANA. God damn computer program was up to it's...odd tricks again. D-Reaper sighed in annoyance as the XANA bots began to flood the zone. His vision lit up with an arrey of red codes, all crab bots. D-Reaper scratched himself a little, something in his mind itching a little at their sight. Must be a reflex for him by now. He gave a small sigh, and looked at the tower, debating whether he should purge the area with his code now or later. It was only XANA bots anyway, not like other life forms--

    Blam. Right on forsakin cue, a batch, the exact number being hard to discern, appeared. They looked confused, which was D-Reaper's saving grace for the moment, when a voice spoke to them. It sounded so familiar,but it caused his body to shake. Was it anticipation? Fear? Anger? A combination of them all? D-Reaper couldn't remember, but he felt a sting for sure. He climbed a tree quickly, and looked over the three...four? Aother caught his eye, and he peered down from his tree to the form. He gripped his scythe, and crouched down. He needed to speak his mind, now. "I warned you!" He roared in the echoed sound of his mask "I told you to stay back! And now, they'll pay the price! I'll send them to the Data Sea, while you sit hopelessly in your chair!" He didn't know who he was addressing, but his body told him to be angry, to be mad at their presence, and that the voice was at fault. He stayed in the tree though, and waited for XANA to come by first.

    Cometstarlight What do I do now?

    Nancy Stone

    Nancy stumbled out of class, her mind shot, her attention span spent, and her freedom finally calling her out into the yard where several pinic tables were filled with other students like herself.

    She sat down at one of said tables and laid her forehead on it.
    "School..." she groaned, "Why don't you have anything interesting for me to do!"

    She took a few deep breaths before throwing her bookbag up onto the table.
    I've been here for what, a week? I need something to hold my attention here.

    "Maybe I can join a book club or something." Nancy murmured to herself as she burrowed inside her backpack to find a directory of all the numbers of the school. Something they had given her, but she had neglected until now.

    "Now where to find a group of friends would be a good place to start."

    ________

    Yes, YES, I know, horrible post is horrible. Truth be told, I'm not exactly sure what to do since I believe everyone else is in the data world at this time. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it later, but yes, absolutely sorry for this horribly written post DX

    Scriptor Scorpio Science Hero

    I'll be getting right on making sure there are enough Garage kids and stuff, but for those that can and want to RP (Raiden193, Samantha Sparks, DVB and ansem the wise, as the virtual characters are set and waiting for Garage Kids to interact with and Cometstarlight being supportive for now) and those that want the insight I've been stupidly delaying, here it is^^ No spoilers for now and do correct me if I got someone's name, plot, intention, ideas, etc. wrong or you want to add or substract something.

    Code Lyoko: Opposing Forces: Plotlines

    I’ll first say everything I can think of about the setting, drawing from the show as well any ideas that I’ve gotten so far from myself and all the RPers. You can skip this block if you already know all that.

    All the main characters go to Kadic which is a boarding school near Paris, although some students don’t live on campus. It has also recently seen an influx of students from foreign countries, perhaps to improve its image. The female principal’s son goes to the school (male counterpart to Sissi, with the principal being the female counterpart to Delmas) and there is one known gym teacher (female counterpart to Jim).
    The ‘origin’ of Aelita, Jeremy and Franz Hopper counterparts can be markedly different as can their personalities and backstory. XANA’s origin is linked to the Franz Hopper counterpart or whatever creator or origin it has.
    The old factory just outside of town is said to be abandoned and now haunted (skeptics prefer ‘unsafe as a slowly crumbling structure and having infrastructure prone to malfunction at the worst possible moment’). Everyone thinks none of the machines even work anymore, but it actually has a much greater secret than some rusty machines and a putrid smell coming from the sewers: it houses an amazing, nuclear powered supercomputer (or so we think), a monitoring port showing a map of ‘Lyoko’ from which you control the three ‘virtualization chambers’ in a separate room and an elevator somehow being powered to run and connecting all the rooms at the push of a button. Because of the stories surrounding the factory, next to nobody dares come near it and thus never discovered what it’s been hiding for all these years. Using the sewers, people can reach it descending down a manhole near Kadic and continuing underground on foot or using a bike, skateboard, scoot and so on, though there might be other entrances and exits.
    The mysterious supercomputer, when turned on, not only maintains a virtual world that houses a malevolent AI named XANA, out to destroy the world and all those who know of its existence, but it also oddly allows the AI to access the network of a large area around Kadic to wreak havoc on anyone unfortunate to be caught in the middle. Naturally, the Kadic students discovering it don’t really like that and set out to stop it.
    This easy hacking feature is presumed to be a part of the virtualization process the supercomputer uses to bring real people into its virtual world named Lyoko when instructed, or get people or things out or into the city’s grid. Presumably, this wasn’t a feature added for simple videogaming fun.
    Gabrielle somehow discovered the supercomputer and realized the threat XANA could be as soon as Halt fails to stop it from activating a ‘tower’, basically a means to access the supercomputer’s more powerful processes
    (later including the then unprotected ‘return to the past’ program, which allows one to turn back time so only people who have been virtualized remember what happened during XANA’s attack; it can’t revive the dead though),
    but can’t shut the supercomputer down or else the seemingly sentient characters in it will never get out (or that is at least the reason she comes to tell the Garage Kids), including XANA, who is seemingly trying to force Gabrielle’s hand.
    Realizing she can’t do this on her own, she tries to find people she can trust and get the job done: saving the world from XANA, as she figures out how to safely shut down the supercomputer. How much she knows about Halt, Aim and XANA is unknown. Care has to be taken, as when you’re virtualized and ‘killed’, you just devirtualize and return to the real world, but when you fall in the Digital Sea, your essence is lost forever.


    The main plotline is about Gabrielle struggling to get a competent and trustworthy team together and them getting along so they can understand what Lyoko really is (as she thrusts them right into danger without much explanation at first, for fear they’d never go in if they knew the risks beforehand) and they become willing to be heroes and to fight against XANA and his forces as she assists them as an ‘operator’ or mission control. The threats manifest in both the virtual and the real world (where the threat usually manifest as something technological or electrical with increasing power and abilities); as the latter try to destroy the Garage Kids and the rest of the world and the innocent people the Garage Kids know or don’t know. And hopefully they win against XANA who has been gathering his own human (?) forces…

    The current first virtual mission has as objectives: form the Garage Kids as a team, get them to work together, make sure they do their best to defeat XANA, ally with Aim to succeed in shutting down the tower and ‘return to the past’.
    To set that ‘team’ thing up, I created some monsters moving to the Garage Kids’ position for them to fight and find out where they are, what they can do in their Lyoko forms and who the others are (though you can focus on your own character’s fighting and thoughts).

    If I’m forgetting something, let me know. Besides them getting their name, maybe it’ll be something different, we decide^^ it’s our alternate universe really.


    For the different characters…

    Halt’s plotline is tied directly to his origin and powers. As such, they’re huge spoilers for anyone and will be part of a reveal that Gabrielle and Halt will allude to (and Scriptor Scorpio and deltakurumiru4 will discuss, though suggestions, requests and more pressingly, demands can be made by anyone).

    Aim’s plotline involves allying himself (if I’m not mistaken) with the Garage Kids to shut down the towers XANA activates, possibly for protection. A possible origin, reveal or personal plotline isn’t set in stone yet and will probably grow as the RP continues.

    Nancy is a supporting character at first, meeting and then helping Gabrielle with all the coding and programming needed for the Lyoko missions. In time, she will be trusted with the Garage Kids’ secret and join their ranks.

    Bea, InnerFlame’s possible second character, Scriptor Scorpio’s possible second character and Diego are the Garage Kids for now, first struggling to work together or understand why Gabrielle had to trick them into entering Lyoko to save the world. I’m trying to get a word from DVB if he wants to continue RPing Diego. All these characters can develop their own storylines and relationships. Do mind character control and asking people for permission and stuff.

    For now, it’s unlikely Samantha Sparks and ansem the wise can, will or want to participate in the RP. That being said, inviting new people to sign up (they don’t get accepted just because they’re friends) is appreciated, but not necessary. Looking at Code Lyoko, as well as the concept of there being opposing forces, we can create characters like classmates, love interests, friends not in on the secret that are merely side characters in terms of having to control them and of course rivals or other people who are secretly allied with XANA.

    Scriptor Scorpio Science Hero

    Name: Violet Rayson.
    Age: 16.
    Gender: Female.
    Primary Role: Spotter, trickster
    Description and skills: Violet has long black hair in a braid, tanned skin and deep brown eyes. She is of a slender build and is about 5’ 5” tall and has an oval face with soft features that contrast with her intimidating gaze. Though she doesn’t have the posture for it, she can pull off the overall tough girl attitude very well. Her padded up blue vest with a grey shirt underneath, black army boots and green cargo pants help to inforce such an image. She speaks French and English flawlessly. She’s unmatched at intimidating people and pushing their buttons, though she usually can’t get people to do things for her, she’s way too scary to be able to charm people, hence she doesn’t know if she’s good looking, since people tend to avoid her.
    In Lyoko: As Violet quickly realized, XANA’s monsters didn’t pay any attention to her usual scare tactics. In fact, they didn’t pay any attention to her at all. Her powers accommodated that quite nicely. Her appearance seemed to be that of her clothing for when it was really cold in her hometown: a light grey coat with matching hood reaching to her knees with trimming not unlike the clothing of the Inuit if they would use lighter modern materials fitted to everyday practicality and Violet’s figure. This improved mobility and compactness comes into play when she reveals her slightly armored and buckled black ninja suit underneath, usually when she attacks an enemy from behind with her electrified tanto. As she isn’t familiar with customs of samurai or ninja or their weapons, she uses the tanto in almost every situation to get up close, though she can only do so if she creates distractions through an application of her electromagnetic powers, fitting her name. She can create short-range shocks, cloaks herself and possibly others and uses a magnetic lock-on to retrieve her tanto.
    Personality: While she might seem fragile and nice at first, Violet is quick to knock the idea out of your head, though not in a physical way. Using her big mouth and a quickly-built or implied reputation, she can get even the toughest guys to back off, though this doesn’t earn her many friends. She might paint herself as rough, rude, tough and tends to pretend to bite at people who come close both figuratively and literally, she does show signs she means to deceive people about how dangerous she really is. Her habit of snapping at people who are taller than her, besides authority figures, possibly shows her feeling inferior for a number of reasons.
    History: In Canada, Violet was quite noticeable due to her not looking like most Canadians and though her attitude bothered people more than how she looked, she didn’t feel quite at home. She found an exchange program with France and seeing as she spoke both English and French flawlessy, she thought it would be perfect to go there and do her final two years of high school there at Kadic. After many arguments with her parents, they agreed to let her go. She misses them, though she rarely talks about them or Canada. She doesn’t miss the snow and she doesn’t quite know how to react to her virtual form turning out the way it did. She’s so far unwilling to disclose anything about her heritage, which is a word she strongly dislikes.

    Introducing a second character to ensure we have enough Garage Kids, since even if DVB will post again, together with a possible second character by InnerFlame, we’d only have four fighters, an operator, Cometstarlight’s character Nancy being supporting in the beginning and two virtual characters which is just a little bit more than the original universe’s team. Seeing as we normally have opposing forces, I figure having Violet along with three other fighters (or two if DVB can’t post anymore or InnerFlame’s second character is a work in progress) is enough to start out with. Maybe Nancy and/or Gabrielle can fight further down the line or we get more RPers (for example for XANA’s fighters) and we shouldn’t forget the virtual characters, where Aim will be an Aelita lite and so an important part of the team. Halt’s storyline is more puzzling for now^^

    Now, as a lead-in to really get across how we’re going about it like the original, but doing our own thing with the alternate universe we created, here’s Violet’s first post, who can interact with Gabrielle as mission control like everyone else, though not with too much character control.


    Violet had been intrigued as to why they’d come here. Were they still in the factory? She didn’t trust that big girl one bit, but she longed to show people what she could do. And it seemed nice someone would talk to her… No, no of course not, not that blonde chick, she looked frigid and boring. But hold on…

    "Is everyone alright?" it sounded, but Violet unconsciously ignored it, muttering ‘blonde chick’ to herself.

    Violet looked around her and saw the lush forest which somehow seemed… off. As if nature forgot to wash it brush before it painted the next part of the décor. Everything seemed kind of muddled, angled even, like a videogame. Odd, very very odd. She looked down to her arms and body and she saw she was wearing a winter coat, like the one she wore back in Canada. What was going on, some random pervert switching her clothes? Had she been dreaming of her going to Kadic and then the dream took a turn for the worse? She looked at creepy insectoids approaching along with multiple big red crab creatures that stood high above them. Oh yeah, she was definitely having a nightmare, but she could handle even those.

    Violet lunged forward, the others the blonde had invited looked on confused, as she kicked one of the insectoid creatures in the face and off the edge. She looked down for a moment, seemingly standing on a floating platform over a void went on forever, with nothing to save yourself if you fell in, safe for the trees that were way larger than they could be in real life, even when compared to giant sequoias. What was this place?

    Violet quickly went on to fight more of the creatures. This was fun, she thought as the voice she’d been hearing got through to her.

    "I'm sorry for not… whole truth… only way… adults never find out… shut off… computer… everything… lost. I need you … go turn off… tower in this forest… lest XANA destroy our world by releasing a very real threat in it.”

    And another one down, wow, gotta watch out for those crab things, Violet thought as she jumped and hid behind a rock. She heard a strange sound, looked around the tree, then quickly hid again as a red energy shot narrowly hit one of her hairs.

    “Explain… This is Lyoko, a virtual world... contained this… but it also harbored something far more malevolent and powerful. An AI called XANA. Up till now, we managed to subdue it… now it is launching a threat in the real world that will take many lives. Unless you stop him, both here in the virtual world and the real world. You played videogames right? It’s very similar. Don’t fall in the digital sea. Dying devirtualizes you, but it also removes you from this mission so don’t go Rambo on this, it won’t work. Your opponents however, work a little bit different. Destroy them with the weapons your mind chose along with your natural and virtual abilities. I... What is... XANA sent a horde of his programs, resembling unusual monsters, they're very dangerous. He isn't going to spare us in our first run, not one little bit, so give it all you've got. Hit them in the XANA symbol for critical damage. I'll guide you to the tower."

    All the explanation by Gabrielle, the blonde chick, had been slowly unwinding in Violet’s mind, as if she’d been studying the recordings of a news report hours later. Hit the symbol, huh? In an instant, Violet disappeared. She wanted to ask why, but changed her mind before she moved her lips. Instead, she jumped right on the big red crab creature, pulled out a strange-looking knife she’d seen ninjas use in films and ran it through the symbol on the crab’s plated head before she jumped off and it exploded in neat little bits of data. The whole thing seemed rather odd for a dream, but there was no time to waste, if the blonde was to be believed, more nightmarish creatures were approaching and the tower she mentioned loomed in the distance. They had to hurry.

    “Guys, this way!” Violet yelled.

    I shortened Gabrielle’s dialogue to keep the size of the post acceptable, hopefully. You can ask Gabrielle directions and stuff. When in doubt, think about what the Garage Kids would ask Jeremy or what he would notice before they would^^

    Hmm....the Reaper pursed his hidden mouth into an amused expression. This person intrigued him. Green data formed what seemed to be an overflow over her, but at the time, hid a code underneath. A bright flash appeared around a short stocky batch, and the XANA bots pain coding reacted with flare. She had the ability to create what seems to be an electric discharge, as well as form it around her coding arm. Again the Reaper looked to the angel wing on his scythe, and felt more longing and confusion. The face he could see in his mind...who was she? Where was she? Why did he need to see her again?

    D-Reaper shook his head to clear it, and focus on the girl. He spun his scythe around in a few short circles, as she continued to remove the bots. As much as he hated the annoying XANA influence, these....kids...needed to be crushed as well. As the rest of the green coded group stayed back, or followed the girl, he began to leap from blue coded branch to branch, wanting for a chance to mess them up. He dashed ahead, and cut several of the trees ahead. Each one remained standing, but he went in an erratic fashion. The trees he did cut lost the ability to repulse anything coming into them, meaning anyone could pass through. Using this, he hid inside one, and waited in ambush for a weak member of the green codes to become apprent.

    Béatrice Éclat
    Forest Zone


    Bea was surrounded by a lush, green forest.

    ... Well, no, not exactly lush.

    The trees around her seemed pretty lifelike, but one couldn't help but feel that they had an odd polygonal texture to them. Perhaps it was just her, but as someone spoke up, it soon became evident that this sight was seen by everyone.

    "What the heck..." it sounded as someone studied himself and the truth slowly crept in: they weren't in France anymore. "What did you do to us!"

    "I'm sorry for not telling you the whole truth, but it was the only way to assure the adults never find out about this, lest they shut off the supercomputer below and everything in it is lost."

    Okay, now the situation made less sense than it already did. Since Gabrielle looked like she would be talking for a while, Bea put on her thinking cap. Supercomputer... so this is some sort of... online RPG? Assuming the "supercomputer" was part of some ridiculous backstory, Bea had even more ridiculous thoughts. "I need you to go turn off the tower in this forest area, lest XANA destroy our world by releasing a very real threat in it." Ah, a virtual world setting? Well, the scanner from before seemed pretty like-like, so... "I"ll explain on the way. This is Lyoko, a virtual world inside a supercomputer that got activated." Yes, virtual world plotline. It still did not phase Bea that this world had physical repurcussions on the real world. "It contained this beautiful forest area and other habitats, but it also harbored something far more malevolent and powerful. An AI called XANA."

    This backstory wasn't as elaborate as she had thought, but it was still quite a bit to take in from one person. She was going to nonchalantly twiddle her hair, only to find that it was now spiraling above her head.

    "...Wow." What's more, her usual attire had been changed into some kind of full-plated battle armour. Wow, snazzy. And her boobs... "My boobs are... amazing!"

    "Destroy them with the weapons your mind chose along with your natural and virtual abilities. I... What is...”

    Returning back to the lecture, Bea heard something about weapons. Seeing as she didn't have one on hand, she closed her eyes and tried to conjure something out of thin air.

    A weight in her left hand. Her body suddenly dipping to the side. Bea opening her eyes. Discovering the giant hammer in her hand. It was nothing short of...

    "AWESOME!!"

    Filled with the immediate desire to smash something, she ran towards a weird robot, albeit somewhat sluggishly; the hammer still had some weight to it, it wasn't like Thor's hammer. Though, she could probably get used to it in time. Stopping short of the robot's pincers, she let out a battle cry ("HELL YEEAAHH!!") and swung down on the strange symbol on the crab's body. She ended up smashing more than just the symbol, but the crapspider still died, so hey, victory!

    "With another slain, I am much closer to reaching Valhalla. Or perhaps Fólkvangr? Hahahaha- aaahh..."

    She had let herself get carried away, didn't she?

    "I let myself get carried away, didn't I?"

    She was now a good distance to the side of the group. Raising her hammer as some sort of shield, she tried to make her way back to the group.
