Site Plot

Finding Serenity


Finding Serenity is an original-character roleplay set in Joss Whedon's Firefly 'Verse. Events take place after the events of the Serenity movie.

The year is 2519.

Earth-That-Was is long gone. Humans found a new group of solar systems with dozens of planets and hundreds of moons. The "Core" planets are civilised, high-tech and under Alliance control. The "Border" worlds are diverse and distinct. The "Rim" is the wild west of the 'verse and the "Black" is where our ships travel, hoping to avoid the perils of space: Alliance, pirates, and the monsters known as Reavers.

So here we are, on the "raggedy edge". This is where our characters live. There are those who stick by the Alliance Government, those who want to rise up against it, and those that just don't care either way as long as they can make a living. With every turn, every choice put forward and every decision made we are FINDING SERENITY

Wherein I blame my return on PurpleRiver
« on: November 07, 2018, 04:34:58 AM »
So, I was on the site waaay back in 2015, playing with all the crazy-talented people on Ronin when some real life things came out of left field and totally kicked me in the pigu.  By the time things settled out, a looong time had passed, and I felt like that ship had sailed, so to speak.

But PurpleRiver had written a scene with Luke playing his guitar, and given that Ava also had a connection with music, I'd found a song that I thought worked really well with her character.  That song recently made its way onto a CD I've had repeating in my car, and every time I've listened to it, it made me think of how much I loved this site, and how great the writing and stories were, and I missed you all!

So I'm still considering character options, but I'm excited at the idea of getting back into things.

Welcome back Chimera! I don't think we played together but I think I recognize that handle.

Thanks, Lomari!  All of the ships look awesome! 

Scout, I don't think we ever shared a ship, but I remember reading your posts.  I got a kick out of scanning the posts and seeing your red shoe!  I need to dig through my files and see if I've still got my avatar file floating around... (...and I don't. :(  )

First off, I LOVE being blamed for someone returning to FS. That gives me good feelings. :-D

Secondly. Ah, Luke. My dear, beloved Luke. He's dead now, did you know? Sad feelings....

But back to good feelings! Yay! Welcome back. I'm sprinting over to read through your character app right now.

Yah, I read about Luke's tragic fate.  I've searched up lots of angsty music to help work through the grief.  The player is more important than the character, though - and you're here!  Ava's just going to have to find someone else to dress in leather for.

Welcome back Chimera! I don't know if we ever roleplayed together during that time period -I was going by Joshua Carter as my OOC name (since I was dumb and didn't realize that I needed to have one not after my character lol) aaanndd I think I played briefly on Ronin as... um.... oh, what the heck was his name again? Blake Snow? I dunno, it's been ages xD

It's kind of funny that while it wasn't a specific person that brought me back just recently but it was music that was a driving factor! Also, my dumb butt just tends to be nostalgic & life has been much better to me for the most part!

Anyway, nice to have you back! Can't wait to see who you're gunna make <3

I just missed Blake on Ronin.  Ava came in just a bit after his time there.  The Joshua Carter name does seem familiar, though.  Did you have any other characters after Blake?

So what was the song that brought you back?  Curious musicophiles want to know!

I think Blake was my last -wait, was he? I literally can't remember now if my character Zoe Harpinger (last name pending i have no clue what it was lololol) came before or after Blake xD

Uh, this is gunna be super duper lame 'cause the music doesn't exactly tie into the site itself but since FS was the first forum rp I joined I listened to Death Is The Road To Awe by Clint Mansell & Forever Fields by 10 Years a lot and it just brought back memories, ya know? Back when I barely knew what I was doing and somehow still got posts to sort of make sense lmao.

Those are cool songs.  Very cinematic.  I can see them being good background noise for writing posts.  I'm going to have to look up some more of 10 Years work, they've got a very interesting sound.
