Yup, Lemony, that's why Liri came up with this timeline so we can get everything straight. She's still seeing if everyone is okay with the way things are arranged, so you can look at the timeline below and see if it sounds good to you.

Tomorrow midday- Dai Li capture Unnamed Gifted child
Tomorrow evening- Clann rescues Stacia
The next day- Clann rescues Hope and Joy

That timeline sound good to everyone?

Hmm, looking at that timeline, I'm thinking we should get started on the meeting as soon as possible? Glory and Lemony are kind of being forced to wait for us.
I'm not trying to rush anyone, by the way! I get that most of you are busy. I'll try to post something tomorrow, ran out of time today because I was finishing some graphics work.

I'm really excited for this RP! Can't wait to see where the plot takes us! I think I might have an idea for after all of the Gifted get rescued...

Edit: Yikes! I just wrote "descendants" instead of "Gifted"! I am way too used to using descendants to describe our characters! You guys probably know why.

Haha!!! Night Wish, this isn't C:U. This a totally different RP. LOL!!!
And don't worry, you aren't rushing anyone. You're actually right. I will try to post soon (I was actually writing a Galadriel chapter, before I erased it all. -_- This computer hates me).

Three characters I think I'll make a clann character if I can because it says you can have three characters, is this still an option?

Liri, I'm fine with everything on the schedule except that Ali isn't scheduled to be rescued. Please add that in.

Haha! I make that mistake too Night typing 'descendants' is almost second nature now! Three RPs in a row! Haha.

Of course you can still make your third character Lemony!

Oops! Sorry PHF! Haha.

How about this:
Tonight- Clann get-to-know-each-other meeting
Tomorrow morning- When Ansell sends out the message falcon and Clann receives it shortly after
Tomorrow midday- Dai Li capture Unnamed Gifted child
Tomorrow evening- Clann rescues Stacia
The next day- Clann rescues Hope and Joy, and Ali afterwards.

Now does the timeline sound good to everyone?

I will try to post, but I might not be able to be very active starting tomorrow and going through Sunday. I will be heading back out to camp for the weekend to babysit. I'll try to post before I leave tomorrow morning, but feel free to start the meeting anyone who is at Clann right now! Its mostly just a meet-and-greet type of thing, but they will also explain why they are here and what their mission is.

Haha! You know, OUAT first started last October... So you and I have literally been using "descendants" for a full year now! By the way, you just called me Hazy.
The timeline looks great! Glad you're still around, PHF.
Lemony, it'd be great if you made a new Clann character. He/she can already be acquainted with Talia, Cadence, Ezra, Ansell, or Katherine... Or any combination of the above.
I'll post by or before tomorrow, hopefully!
Also, I think I have an idea for a new character.


Name: Sierra Leitner
Gender: Female
Age(8-25): 15
Gifted, Clann, or Dai Li Agent: Gifted
Strong Ability (If Gifted): Shapeshifting
Minor Ability (If Gifted): Empathy
Personality: Bold, adventurous, and free-sprited, Sierra tends to be a bit of a rebel. She can be a good friend, but she rarely trusts people enough to let them in. Sierra is also strong-willed and determined.
Appearance: Tall, athletic, with light skin and slightly slanted amber eyes. She has long blonde hair that she wears in an elaborately braided style with a few tendrils hanging over one shoulder. (First picture) Whenever she's on an adventure on the mountainside, however, she wears her braid loose over one shoulder. (Second picture)
Other: Sierra's parents are famous mountain explorers, and she's spent most of her life going with them on their explorations. She's toured most of the mountains ranges in Mallorea/Alagaesia/Whatever with them. The name "Sierra" actually means "mountain range" in Spanish. Sierra has always had a way with the animals she meets on those mountainsides, though she can't explain why. Instead of being rescued by the Clann, Sierra was captured by the Dai Li when she accidentally exposed her powers, and was forced to join the King's army.

Sierra.jpgSierra Leitner.jpg

(There you go, Liri and Alexa. "Unnamed Gifted Child" has a name now. Or you can have Ren and Galy capture a random Gifted child as well as Sierra, if you'd like. It does seem unlikely that the Clann would have so many successful rescues. It's up to you, of course. Just make sure Ansell does his best to sabotage their efforts.
I kind of wanted to write from the POV of someone in the King's reluctant army. It seemed like it'd be interesting. )

Liri, that's cool how you got a lot of your place names from books. Books are a great source of inspiration! I get a lot of my character names from books, actually.
Now I'm curious - did "Estoriana" come from a book?

Why thank you, Glory! I also think that's quite the ingenious place name.
I totally agree! Books are an amazing source of inspiration.
I've always thought that Liri made up the name "Estoriana" because of the fact that all our characters were descendants of people in fairytale stories. You know, E-story-ana. It could also be because of Storybrooke, since it is based off of OUAT. But of course, I could be way off.

Oh my gosh! Wow! Haha so sorry Night! I was thinking about Hazy... and I guess I accidentally typed it! Hahaha! Sorry!

Great! Sierra is perfect for Ren and Galy to capture! They can still capture an unnamed gifted kid later, but lets have them get Sierra first. Haha, and of course Ansell will do a mighty job trying to sabotage their efforts always

Books inspire a lot of what I do Characters, RPs, names, places, paintings... lots of stuff.
No, Estoriana didn't come from a book. It was sort of inspired by Storybrooke, and sort of what Night said.

All right, I think I'm going to make an executive decision and name the world Alagaesia (Even though Whatever is a fabulous name for a world ). Is everyone cool with that? We can still use the other names for names of cities or towns... or mountains... or valleys.... or lakes... or castles...
You get the idea

It's okay, Liri! It happens. I've been thinking about her too.
Alagaesia sounds great! And maybe, since Mallorea also had two votes, that could be the name of the city/town/country where Clann headquarters is located? Since I get the feeling we're going to spend a lot of time there, I think that would be fair.
I concur! And since "Whatever" is a fabulous choice, we should totally give that name to the city where Dai Li Headquarters is located!
Thanks, Alexa!

Okay, I'll write the meeting. Alexa, Popcorn, and Marionette, you guys can add/change anything you want, and so can you when you get back, Liri! Hmm, Jenny, did you want Katherine to be at the meeting? I left that part open, so you can make her show up if you'd like.


After leading me down the hall to what looks like an enormous room with lots of seats set up, Talia leaves to join her friends at the head of the room. She, Cadence, and a couple other Clann members had been the one to set up these weekly meetings, and they're usually the ones to lead it. Along with someone named Nyna, and the four elders that make up the ruling body of the Clann.
"You'll meet them soon enough," Talia had told me, with a smile. "Nyna always likes to personally greet the new Gifteds."
I still haven't figured out who this Nyna person is supposed to be.
I scan the crowd, a bit desperately, until I see a vaguely familiar face. Grace! I slip into a seat next to her.
"Hi," I give her a friendly smile. "I'm Haven. Remember? We met briefly yesterday."
"Yeah, hi," she says, smiling back. Just like me, she looks to be a little nervous as well. "I'm Grace. Thanks for saving me with that tornado back there. That was really cool."
"No problem! I'm glad you're okay," I reply. "So... Do you know what your power is?"
"I'm a healer," Grace explains. "I can heal myself, and others. I've known about the Clann and the Dai Li for a while now, but that was the first time I'd met either group. I was trying to warn the Clann about the Dai Li agents sneaking up on them, but then they caught sight of me." She frowns, growing thoughtful. "I saw this one agent... She looked a lot like... me, for some reason."
"That's so strange," I say, puzzled. "Does your family have Dai Li connections?"
"Not as far as I know."
Just then, I pick up Talia's voice through the low murmurs of the crowd. "Hmm, Haven and Grace are here, but where's Tori? It would be a shame for her to miss her first meeting." Through the crowd, I see her turn to one of her colleagues. "Ezra, do you mind getting Tori from her room?"
The male agent looks excited for a moment, then a bit hesitant, as if he's feeling awkward. "Um, sure."
"Hurry back, it's almost time for the meeting to start," Talia tells him.
Ezra nods and hurries off. He comes back a few minutes later with a girl with long, red hair that fades from dark red at the top to a light orange at the tips. Hey, cool hair! The crowd has increased since then, their conversations louder, so I can no longer pick up what they're saying to each other.
"Attention, everyone!" Talia calls out, smiling out at the crowd. "Welcome to our weekly meeting! As most of you know, this is a time where we all come together and discuss what's been happening this week, as well as introduce any new Clann members or Gifteds."
"As most of you know, we have three new Gifteds joining us tonight," Cadence continues, smiling over at us. "Haven, Grace, and Tori. We're very fortunate to have them here with us this evening."
There's applause and cheers at this, and several people turn to stare at the three of us. "That's three more that's been saved from the Dai Li," someone in the crowd calls out, and there are nods and murmurs of agreement.
"Without further ado, here are Nyna and the Council of Elders, to explain our mission as the Clann, and to give the official welcome," Ezra finishes with a smile.
As the three of them step back, five people come forward. Four of them are clearly older, two men and two women, all looking esteemed and dignified. An aura of wisdom and elegance surrounds the Elders, giving no doubt as to their position of power.
The fifth is a young woman with a friendly, open face and a gentle smile. She looks to be in her mid-twenties, looking stylishly pretty in a long, simple and elegant dress, but not too over the top.
"Hello, everyone," the young woman says, smiling. "As many of you know, I'm Nyna, and this is the Council of Elders."
"We are the founding members of the Clann, the shapers of all its values," one of the Elders, an older man with a low voice that somehow carries across the room.
"The Clann is an organization dedicated to finding and protecting the Gifted, children with strange and extraordinary powers," a female Elder continues.
"For ten years, we have been the guardians of the Gifted," a third Elder adds. "Starting with the discovery of one girl. A girl with powers and abilities unlike any we have ever seen. We have hidden her away from the world, a world that would have taken advantage of her, or used her to fight their petty battles. We know that there is little justice under the reign of the King."
"And it was she that showed us a new way of life," the fourth and last Elder finishes, glancing over at Nyna.
Nyna was the first Gifted. I've been suspecting it since she had first appeared with the Elders, but now I have my confirmation. No wonder she's so important here...
"And over time, our ranks swelled, until we formed an organization known as the Clann," Nyna takes up the story. She smiles over at me, Grace, and Tori. "Yes, I was the first Gifted. And the Elders are the original, founding members of the Clann. But it wasn't long until we realized that there were other children out there, children with abilities like mine. We called these children Gifted, because we believed that these powers were the key. The key to the dawn of a new way of life, a life free of the King's tyrannical rule. And so they were a great Gift to the world."
There's a derisive snort from the side of the room. "You want to overthrow the King?" Tori asks incredulously. "Now that's just crazy."
Nyna levels a calm gaze at her. "Yes, that is our end goal. One we have worked towards for the last decade. And it's not so crazy as you'd think... Though it wasn't long before the King realized the Gifted were out there. He began training up an elite group of agents known as the Dai Li, to capture the Gifted and turn them into a mindless army, an fighting machine that would take over all of Alagaesia and keep all its people under his rule."
I'm up on my feet before I know it. "Against their wills?" I demand. "He's training them to fight against their own people, the people of Alagaesia, against their wills?!"
"I'm afraid so," Nyna answers gravely.
There's a rumble of thunder, a low undertone of the storm waging inside me. Come on, keep it in. I take a deep breath and pull myself together. "That isn't right," I say, more calmly. "He must be stopped."
"That is what we thought as well," one of the Elders agrees. "Which is why we formed the Clann, to protect the Gifted, but also to work towards stopping him."
"Back to the story," Nyna says with forced cheerfulness. You can tell that this idea makes her angry as well. "These Gifted children have extraordinary abilities: telekinesis, invisibility, empathy, weather manipulation, shapeshifting, levitation, telepathy, teleportation, healing, and prophecy. Each Gifted child has one strong ability and one minor one. Usually these powers manifest themselves for the first time in a time of great urgency, excitement, fear, or danger. They are highly tied to your emotions."
I figured that one out, I think to myself wryly. The hard way.
"I am different from the rest of you, in that I have all ten abilities, but they are all minor," Nyna explains. "We're not sure why... Perhaps it has to do with the fact that I was the first of the Gifted."
"Nyna has provided us with an opportunity to study these amazing powers, which we have been doing for the past ten years," a female Elder speaks up. "And still, we are making new discoveries regularly."
"And I provide training for all of our Gifted children," Nyna says with a grin. "I'll be able to show you how to use your abilities properly, how to control and defend yourselves with them. But make no mistake, you will not be asked to learn to fight with your powers, unless you expressively wish to do that," she explains gravely. "This is not the Dai Li, and we are not trying to make you into soldiers."
"That concludes the explanation portion of our meeting tonight," an Elder finishes. "We will now take a break for some refreshments, and feel free to mingle amongst yourselves. We will meet back in twenty minutes to discuss news and updates this week." She gestures to the long banquet tables lining the enormous room, covered with food and drink.
"And the Elders and I would like to offer an official welcome to our new Gifteds," Nyna adds, smiling. "Tori, Grace, and Haven, we are pleased to have you here tonight, and glad that you've made it to the Clann safely. We look forward to getting to know you, and - " she spreads open her arms. "Welcome to the Clann family!"
The crowd erupts into cheers and wild applause. I get the feeling that most of them have heard this meeting, and this story about the Clann, multiple times. Yet there's no sign of anyone acting bored or impatient. Instead, most of them are up on their feet, cheering and clapping, and Grace and I become swallowed up in their excitement.
These people are really excited about what they do. They're so passionate, like they truly believe in what they're doing, the common cause they're all fighting for... It's amazing.
I smile, feeling the effects of their infectious passion. I could really find something here. Something I've been looking for for a long time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Later, after about a million handshakes and introductions, I find myself at one of the banquet tables, with a rare moment of privacy. Grace is nowhere to be seen, and I hope I'd get to catch up with her later. She seems like someone I'd like to get to know.
"Haven!" Nyna walks up to me. "How have you been enjoying the meeting?"
"It's been... great. A little overwhelming," I confess.
Nyna grins. "You'll get used to everyone! We're all just really glad that you're here. Now, Talia has informed me that you have Weather Manipulation?"
"No, actually, it just happened to be thundering indoors back there. Had nothing to do with me at all," I say, with mock innocence worthy of Ansell. I feel a twinge of sadness... Apparently, he'd rubbed off on me more than I thought.
Nyna laughs. "Do you know which other power you have?"
"Flying... Or Levitation, as you call it. I'm not very good at that... At either of them, actually," I sigh. "Control issues."
"Ah. Well, you and the other two new Gifteds officially start your training tomorrow, but here's something all of you should know." Nyna stares at me intently. "In order to control your abilities, you must learn to believe in yourself. It all starts with that... And everything else develops after. And you'll be amazed, and shocked, and sometimes terrified at what you can do, what heights you can go to with your power. It all starts with belief... But believing is only the beginning."
She smiles at me. "See you around, Haven." I stare at Nyna's retreating back, thinking about what she'd just said.
Just then, I spot a flash of orange hair a few feet away. Squeezing through the crowd, I make my way to the other new Gifted girl.
"Hi," I say, giving Tori a friendly smile, though you didn't have to be an empath to detect the waves of animosity coming off of her. I remember what Talia said about her probably having had a tough life, however, and I want to give an honest effort at getting to know her. "I'm Haven."

(Are you guys okay with all that? Let me know if I didn't control anyone's character right.
I'm not sure what I assumed about Nyna and the Elders was right! I realized I didn't know anything about the Elders really, and I wasn't sure what Nyna would look like and what her personality was. Hope what I did was okay!)
