Hi there! I’m Mage. I’ve had the idea for this storybook for a few weeks, so I’m really excited to be writing this with whoever decides in.

The plot of the story was already explained in the first post, but here’s a simplified list of what exactly is going on in The Reawakening of Hickory Grove:

    - a group of six high school/childhood friends get stuck in the middle of a villain attacking their school
    - they realize that the strange things in their lives can be explained with them being reincarnated; meeting a guy who shows up at the end of the attack also helps
    - my character, Jane, suggests that they use the powers they now have access to/had in their past lives to become superheroes
    - the group starts fighting minor villains/the big bad who wants to figure out how they got reincarnated while also trying to get back all of their old memories.

The big kicker of the storybook is that it really shouldn’t be in the superhero genre. It’s probably more fantasy/sci-fi, depending on your character’s backstory. But Jane suggests the idea of them becoming superheroes right after they get their powers, and the group decides that they want to go along with that idea.

There’s also a plan in place in case anyone has to abruptly leave the storybook. I hope that won’t happen, but I wanted to be prepared in case it did. Anyone who leaves the storybook will have their character captured by the big bad; anyone who joins to replace the lost writer will have their character suddenly realize they were reincarnated, too.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this storybook! I’ll be posting a character profile (CP) template soon, as well as updating the cast list in the actual SB as more people join the storybook.

I hope you’re as excited as I am for this! :)

I would, but I'm already in two and don't want to end up overwhelmed. ;-;

I'm going to try and read this though, it looks really interesting!

@Carina, you've been added to the cast list!

And @sheyren, I guess I can give into nepotism and add another slot to this storybook. >>

Also, it looks like this storybook is completely filled now! I can't believe I got a full cast in less than an hour. :)

Like I mentioned in my first post, I'll try to get that CP up soon! It should be pretty straightforward, and I'll probably get Jane's CP up right around the same time. Then we can start planning our first round of posts. <3
