Sky’s just a Londoner from a regular version of Britain (probably Britain in Levi’s world) who gets very confused by American politics and now is very overwhelmed by the alternate Americas. She can’t even follow what’s happening in the normal US, let alone other ones c:

Is it bad that Sky is a mood even though I'm from the US? >>

Also, about Gideon after that ominous post:

I have no idea how Winthrop would respond to a Trump presidency; in America Gone, it was thought Trump died when the bombs dropped, so she's astounded he's alive. As for her politics-- well, her grandfather is the president XD

I’m from there too, and she is a mood, true. >>

I guess seeing a historical event every five minutes nowadays became the norm and eventually we couldn’t catch up anymore. :P

True. >>

Also, I posted! Levi suddenly realized how ironic it was for him to say that their stories didn't make any sense when the group is standing in the ruins of a city.

I'm curious... What kind of timeline is this one? What era of American (or, more specifically, what region) of architecture is this?

@Vil, good question! I wouldn't say it's any specific time/area. It's more like the buildings look like they were created by humans, which implies that this is a different world that also has humans. >>

(The image I used in the first post is actually from an anime called Coppelion that's set in post-apocalyptic Japan.)

“Well, why did something bring us lot here?” Sky asked, her accent resurfacing. “What are we supposed to do about it? I mean, I know one of us is claiming to be a President, but I don’t know who the rest of you are. I don’t see why anyone would want me for this, so I wonder why you’re all here too.”


All of your last post was great, @SilverNight, but this part was especially good.

Little did Sky know that she would soon be the protagonist of a storybook where the main cast gets transported to another world to be its heroes.

Aw, thank you Mage! <3

Oops, that's a spoiler for her. You can count on a "oh nOt aGaiN" from her when that happens. >>

Hey, after a lot of consideration, I decided to back out of this role play. I’ve only made one post, and my heart isn’t really into it. So far, Bree’s done nothing but stand there.

I hope you guys finish the role play! Best of luck!

That's okay, @Valkyria! Thanks for being up front about it instead of just dropping out without any explanation. <3 <3

Would you be alright with taking down your post in the roleplay? I can remove Levi mentioning Bree in his second post, too. I'm not quite sure how the group is getting home yet, so it might be easier for us to move ahead if we pretend that Bree was never there in the first place.

(But I completely understand if you want to keep the post up!)

Just posted, and for any who are curious, Gideon has a Glasgow accent.
