Every person in the world is given a necklace when they are born. Most people get one when they are born in the hospital, but others are not as fortunate. The idea for having every person where a necklace was the governments idea. It was their way of having a tracking system and number for every citizen. To not freak everyone out they hid the number and gave the charm at the end of the necklace a random design. They created an A.I., Artificial Intelligence, that monitored the system.
Over time the AI decided on making peoples love life an experiment, 'what would happen if you could control love?' Using the tracking system, the AI began to target people with the highest chance of becoming matches. The A.I. implemented system of the Love-Line, matches between people based on their necklaces.
Every has a necklace when they are born. It is the most treasured part of each persons life, some would give their life before separating with it. Each necklace has a small silver chain, just long enough to fit perfectly for the persons neck. The charm on end of the necklace is almost one of a kind. Their is only one other mirror match to your charm.
People born without necklaces, are considered 'glitches.' The government see's these people as mistakes and arrest them on sight. Those people are never seen again, but they are spectated to be transported to a government facility named, Binghamton. Everyone fears one day being sent to Binghamton, and thus keep a close check on their necklaces.
There are many people that steal, fake, and sell necklaces all for various reasons. The business has slowly become quiet advanced up to the level where they have become a government threat. While the fakes are hard to spot by eye, government officials have a special tracker that can tell whether or not it is fake. Because of this murders have drastically increased and the selling of true necklaces price has raised significantly.
When, if, a person does meet up with their partner it's nearly impossible for something to get between them. This is not a every-other-week boyfriend/girlfriend. This is your life-partner and you would do anything for this person, without a second thought. You also trust them completely.
Now when you do finally meet. You touch of your charms to each others. There is an amazing sensation for each participants when the charms finally connect. For a day after they connect they will be stuck together, truly sealing the bond. After that the charms will fall apart again. The couple will now be connected in more ways then one. While they can't read each others minds, it is said thats sometimes these people can tell when each other is in trouble.
No godmodding, powerplaying, metagaming, ect. Basic rule and such
You are allowed to control NPC's to a certain level. We would prefer if you kept this to a minimum such as having someone give you a dirty look. Mods, and myself of course, have the authority to control NPC's to a greater level.
Try to be original
Romance is allowed and encouraged. It is after all a romance RP. Keep is pg 13 or 18+ put it in a spoiler.
Keep it real. If you suddenly were threatened then how would you really react? Would you really just jump out in some supernatural kung-fu?
Go slow. This RP is going to be a lot of traveling and while it is a goal to find your partner it will be fun if it takes you a while to get to that point.
Respect my authority for I am your god XD

Nick Name: Astrid or Bones
Age: 17 1/2
Necklace: For the sake of the story a lot is going to revolve around this character. She is considered a glitch and thus has no necklace.
Personality: Astrid is wild and scared almost all of the time. Being on her own for so long has made her become somewhat feral. She is very jumpy and a lot of the time has incredibly huge trust issues. However besides all this she is brave and is not afraid to take action. Sometimes this will lead her into tough situations, but so far she has managed to stay alive.
When Astrid grew up on the streets not knowing how she got there, only that this was what she had always done to stay alive and this is what she would always do. She stole from local stores so that she would not starve. Thankfully she was quiet tiny and flexible so she didnt have to hard of a time learning to steal.
However besides all this growing up on the streets without friends or family was hard, especially as a glitch. Even the street gang didn't want to have anything to do with her for fear that she would bring the wrath of the government down on them.
She kept trying though and eventually found her way into a gang. Its name was The Pack. It's leader was a young man named Tyson, who was a big adrenaline junkie and only accepted her because he thought she was hot. It took away, but eventually Astrid started to call them family. She became very close to some of the members and they treated her well. While slowly moving up the ranks in The Pack, Astrid met a guy named Will. They became close, very close. Will was a tall man slightly younger than Tyson with shaggy brown hair that she fell deep in love with. Unfortunately he had a necklace.
One day when Astrid was heading back from a perimeter scout when she found Tyson kicking Will while he lay on the ground. Tyson was screaming into his face, "She was mine! Mine!" Astrid leapt upon Tyson's back knife out. She tried to press it into his neck, but he had pressed it down. She brang the knife back attempting to stab him in the back when he back peddled her into the wall. In doing this he also stabbed himself.
While Will was fine he did seem more reserved after that. Astrid rose to being Pack Leader, but left with in 6 months. She decided it would be better if she was away from the man she loved and the man she murdered. Both her first.

Despite his looks, he is very kind to everyone unless he hates the person. He has a tendency to not ignore anything for any reason, unless necessary.
Biography: He grew up in a bustling city in a apartment of a high-rise building. He grew up happily, loving sports. However, he ended up being bullied by jocks, which only worsened by years, the facts that he does not ignore most things making things even more worse. He had to be in the school until a school shooting happened in the school when he was 12. The said school shooting, however, actually ended up making the situation even worse by his parent making him change schools because of "safety concerns". Now that he had graduated from the high school, he is finally free of bullies.
((Aww, thanks. I'd love to Rp as him but, I figured that he wouldn't fit in.))
Name: Jacob Myers
Nick Name: Jacob
Necklace: A red heart with an empty slot in the shape of a house in the middle, where the other part will go into.
Personality: Jacob's pretty outgoing. He loves his friends and his friends love him. Though he can be sometimes annoying and proud and he considers himself pretty funny. But he can be serious in dire situations and is often kind to his friends.
Biography: Jacob grew up with his uncle in the bustling city.They had a normal lifestyle; they were not rich but not poor either. Jacob had a good school life too: good grades, no bullies and he had never gotten into a fight. When Jacob was 15 years old, his uncle announced that they were moving to the countryside, as he was growing tired of the hustle and bustle of the city. Jacob was ,of course, fine with that.
After they moved, Jacob had to go to his school by foot. That was the only downside of moving there. He loved the fresh air and the crisp, clean water of the lakes. The house was also on the edge of a forest so there was plenty of shade around. In his free time, he crafted little sculptures by wood and soon mastered crafting. Jacob told his uncle to sell them for some money and his uncle agreed that a little more income wouldn't hurt.
After finishing school, Jacob rested for a while, hanging out with his friends, but almost immediately grew bored of it. He would make the occasional sculpture once or twice a day but that wasn't enough, he needed more excitement in his life. So he decided to go out and see the world.
Other: I don't know what a Love-Line is. Oh wait, I do. Sorry if I delayed anyone with my lateness.
((If you don't know who that is, that's the new Sherlock Holmes a.k.a Benedict Cumberbatch. I thought you knew him, that's why I said I'd like to Rp as him. Of course, you knew who that is. What's wrong with you, brain?))
((haha we know! You are accepted Asdf. Now commence RPing!!! And tbc I know the picture is amazing. I found it on deviant art and use it for almost all of my applications. In someways she reminds me of Lara Croft from tomb raider, just with red hair.))
Jacob felt the sunlight on his face. Morning already? He sat up and went to the bathroom to wash his face and brush his teeth. Today was a big day for him, so it was necessary for him to look as good as possible.
After putting on a white T-shirt and faded blue jeans, he went into the kitchen to be greeted by his uncle, eating fried eggs with bacon and reading the newspaper. There was another plate for Jacob on the opposite side of the table. He sat down and cleared his throat to tell his uncle he was here.
"Oh. Good morning, Jacob," his uncle said.
"Yeah, good morning," Jacob replied as he stuffed bacon in his mouth.
"Are you ready? Have you packed your suitcase?"
"Yeah, I'm ready,"
"Well, best be going after you finish that. You'd want to start out early."
After finishing his breakfast, Jacob grabbed his suitcase and stood on the front porch to say goodbye to his uncle. After a couple of I'm-going-to-miss-you's, he took a deep breath and headed to the city where he would catch the bus. He remembered his necklace and checked that it was still there. He didn't remember anything about it except it was there as long as he remembered.

I'm not a psychopath, I'm a sociopath. Do your research! Why can't people just think?
Astrid moaned at the light shining in her eyes. "go away sun." Rolling over in the bed she glared at the curtains, wishing she could move them with her mind. Finally giving up she sighed and pushed herself out of bed. She quickly threw on a black t-shirt and some ripped up jeans. After eating a quick meal in her apartment Astrid pushed open the door and walked outside, still somewhat affected my the sleepiness.
Getting into her car Astrid had that sudden moment of fear, when you loose something important. She grabbed for her neck where she found her necklace. With a sigh of relief Astrid turned on the car and pulled out of the parking lot.

((Hey Grey, I read it over and am interested but I want to know if there's a story line... I mean, I'm just wondering. Also, are we to make necklaces that match with another person's character? Final questions, is this just in our regular world? Last one, I promise, but is the government at all interfering with anything and what type of gov't?I'd totally be willing to help you in any way here and would be more than happy to help with a story line if you really want. )) ((Also, App:)))
((Will add this in when I hear back from you about questions.))
Casey is a fun loving girl who will do anything to get the answers to the many questions she has in her head. Casey will help anyone if she can and will try even if she believes she can't. Casey has never been one to be very obedient and usually doesn't do what she's told as long as she thinks it's stupid or useless. Casey would never leave anyone behind if she could help it, but knows when to give in or give up. She is smart though not so much in school as she is on the street.
Casey was born to a middle class mother that had been divorced and already had another, older daughter named Paige. Casey's mother was a young lady around the age of thirty five when she caught the eye of Casey's father who was a surfer and approached Casey's mother when she was at the beach with her little girl having already lived in Miami all her life and never leaving. When Casey's mother met Casey's father, she was rather curious about the man. The two began talking and eventually went on a date, as time progressed, Casey's father became a fatherly figure for young Paige for a few months before Casey was born when he left and didn't return.
Casey grew up going to an outdoor public school where she made friends and had good grades, though she was always rather bad in English. Casey played basketball and thoroughly enjoyed doing the dancing her mother was able to pay for by scraping together money that she had saved away. Casey was also able to play basketball when she was on summer vacation and liked to surf with Paige whenever they had the chance as it felt more like home than her house to Casey.
When Casey was eight, she was with her mother and sister at home when a fire was started by some faulty wiring that an electrician recently "fixed". When this happened, Casey panicked when she was in her room and couldn't get out because of the door. She was on the second floor and had to jump out the window to the firemen waiting below as they couldn't get their fire truck close enough to raise the ladder and there was not much time to do anything else. Casey was burnt right before she jumped, not getting one leg out fast enough to avoid the searing feeling of the burn. She was taken to the hospital where they treated the third degree burn, telling her that it would heal and she would be okay, but she would always have a scar.
As Casey and her small family began rebuilding their life that had been taken from them, they bought a small shack by the beach where the half sisters (not knowing they weren't complete sisters) shared a room while their mother slept on a pull out bed in the living room on the couch. A few nights after they had settled in, Casey's father showed up, saying he was sorry for what happened and was willing to help Casey's mother get back up on her feet. Casey never saw her father as she had been in bed, supposed to be asleep when she heard the voices. There was what sounded like a slap before the voices stopped and all Casey could hear was the crashing of the waves on the beach nearby.
When Casey was ten, she was with her sister as they were surfing. Casey got a bad feeling for some reason and she didn't know what to do. Only when it was too late did she realize what she had gotten a bad feeling over. Her sister was attacked by a shark and sank under water, legless and going into shock. Casey went after her sister, sending the shark away. Casey was able to bring her sister to the surface where she was helped into a police boat as they had been nearby and came to the rescue too late.
Paige was in a hospital for three weeks before Casey's mother made the decision that forever affected Casey. Her sister had gone into a shock induced coma and the doctors announced that with no brain waves that they had been receiving, Paige wouldn't wake up. With a severed leg, the doctors took the girl of life support and soon enough, her heart stopped beating entirely and she was gone, leaving a small hole in Casey's chest. Casey blamed herself though she never told anyone but her mother who told her it wasn't her fault and that she shouldn't beat herself up about it. Casey's mother finally told her daughter the news about her father as she deemed the time ready. Casey wasn't surprised and wasn't really hurt so much as surprised that he would just never come around to visit his daughter.
Casey then continued to grow up with her mother in the now two person shack by the sea as the two took on many part time jobs to keep up on payments as well as have fun when they could. Casey's mother never surfed a day after the attack on Paige though Casey would sneak out at night to find the waves as she couldn't stay away from the water.
Casey was broken slightly more when she saw her mother's obviously hurt heart, but began to heal as time came and went allowing her to make friends and gently erase the nightmares that rarely plagued the young girl. When Casey was seventeen, her mother decided to allow her to go her favorite city where she always wanted to go where she would live with her aunt. A month before Casey's departure her mother however, was home and got severely injured when yet another fire started, resulting in her loosing her ability to hear as as an explosion went off.
Casey was again put in a bad state but her mother would not allow her to not go to the city she always dreamed of. She sent her daughter away and went to live with her own brother nearby, perfectly happy as she was able to feel confident one daughter would be happy for as long as possible.
Casey was never quite sure if she believed in love lines.
((Hey Juliet glad to see you taking an interest! Now to answer your questions:
1. Story line is not set. I spent a while trying to think of one but could not so i left it up to us to figure out as we go. If you have an idea please message me and we can talk about it.
2. Necklaces don't have to match the character but if you want to feel free to. I dont really mind. Just remember each necklace is different from the next, there is only one like yours and it is a mirror match.
3. Yes this is the real world
4. So far the government is not interfering in any way but we did just start the rp. If you have an idea I would love to hear it so send it over in a message.
5. Man is that a bio or what! Accepted!!))
Jacob was on the outskirts of the city after a couple miles walk. He flung his suitcase over his shoulder as his arm grew more tired by the second. The suitcase was a bad idea, he should've brought a backpack. He rested for a while on the roadside but, got up again after a few minutes. As his uncle said, it was best if he arrived there early; it would give him more time to rest.
After another long walk, he had finally reached the bus stop. His legs were tired, so he sat down thankfully on the plastic chairs. He was thirsty too. He noticed a little supermarket nearby, so he guessed he could get some food and drinks from there. But now he was going to rest.
At least the air was clear here. He took a look at his surroundings while he sat. He was in the non-polluted side of the city. The houses here had front lawns, hedges, cars and everything. He noticed a woman coming out of one of the houses, wearing a grey T-shirt with a brown leather jacket. He thought of waving for a second but decided against it.

Nick Name: Harbinger (Online user name, commonly referred to as 'Harbinger')
Age: 18 (Almost 19)
Personality: Nate wants to do good, he wants to help people. He makes sure that he is always nice and speaks with a pleasant tone. But, sometimes he loses control and he lashes out at others. To Nate, this is the ultimate crime and he often will punish himself for it. Nate would lay his life down for those he considers his friends, he may be slow to trust you, but when he does it may pay off.
Biography: As a child, Nathan grew up in an odd way. Nathan grew up homeless, living off of what he could find. Nathan had to learn to defend himself from others, and he often found himself in a situation that ended up in him getting injured. This taught him to tell whether fight or flight would be a better option in a given situation. He is also good at predicting the outcome of a situation, but it is easy to make a wrong prediction. Nathan's daily hunger and pain taught him to cherish everything he had, and not complain about what he didn't.
Living on the streets allowed Nathan to develop skills in fighting and running, though he will only use them as a last resort. The fights that he often lost as a child made him swear to help as many people as he could, and he is always trying to be nice. Even though Nathan did not grow up in a way that he could go to school and get a good education, he is very smart. Once he found the tools to learn(In this case it was computers and books), he learned at a somewhat rapid pace. Nathan may be smart, but he can still do stupid things.
As Nathan got older, he became a much more kind and calm person. He keeps his anger inside, even though it is bad for him, and he sometimes lashes out. When Nathan turned 15 he found himself a way to earn money quickly and efficiently, the Stock Market. Nathan's knowledge made the stock market a brilliant place for him to earn money, he was great at predicting the stocks. But, in his rise he made one large mistake.
Nathan gained a fair amount of notoriety among the city he lives in, as a 15 year old trader. Some people were after his money, and they would succeed. Nathan met a girl, she was nice and he really cared for her. What made this even more better was that her necklace was a match for his! They spent all of their time together and Nathan gave her as much money as she needed for whatever she wanted, within reason. On their 6 month anniversary Nathan found out that the necklace was a fake and that she had robbed him.
Nathan is now hesitant and very slow to trust people because of his past. He has gotten a job that goes against his personality. Nathan is a Merc for hire. He will steal, fight, observe, or follow anyone for money. Why he decided to put his skills to use in this way, not even Nathan knows. But, he does know that no one will get in his way when it comes to finding his other half. His real other half. Nathan is also a larger online gamer.
He is the top on the leaderboards of many games he plays, this may seem impossible, but with the time he can spend gaming it is more likely than you may think. to keep people from finding out he is a Merc for hire, he also works as a Field Technician who repairs people's computers and related devices. As Merc Work has died down he is becoming more dependent on this job.
Bob woke up, as he felt the sunlight in his face. He yawned, as he walked to the living to get his breakfast before going to the grand journey of the life. He calmly ate his breakfast, talking to his parents. before packing few remaining things in his backpack. After some packing, he went to change his clothing to what he thinks that it would look good. He then carried his backpack and went to the porch to say goodbye to his parents before leaving.
After some time, he walked off to outside of the apartment.
Getting up, Nathan puts on his sweatshirt and quickly brushes his hair. "Isn't it odd that I use a brush and I am a guy?" He asks himself. "Wait, who am I even talking to?" He adds quickly, noticing that he was talking to himself. Nathan shakes his head because of his lack of caring for being weird. "Now, should I stay in today? Or go out?" he asks himself as he brushes his teeth. "Let's go out, we need some fresh air, plus there is a get together being held by our gaming buddies." He responds to himself. Nathan decides that going out would be a good thing, so once he finished brushing his teeth he grabbed his backpack and left his house.
Nathan walks down the street, he puts his earbuds in and puts on a random song. "Ooh, this is a good one!" He say to himself cheerily, as he continues walking. The music was easily loud enough for others to hear but he didn't care. As Nathan approaches the bus stop he sees a girl standing there. "She seems like something is off. Nervousness? Sadness? It could be either of the two." He says to himself. "67% chance that approaching her will induce a startled reaction." He adds. Nathan continues along and stops at the bus stop, awaiting the bus.
"Hey." He says to the girl standing near him. Nathan spoke in a cheery, gentle tone to make himself seem as nice as possible. The only thing about him that generally made people feel threatened was the fact that he didn't wear his 'Icon'(His necklace). It made people think there was something wrong with him. It was explainable though, he didn't show it off after 'the incident'. His biggest flaw is how he talks to himself.
((okay everyone i've decided to change the RP, hopefully for the better. I know its not the best time to change it but i believe this will give us something to focus on. Please check it out. Also I have changed my own characters' application. I hope that maybe you can befriend her and try to help overthrow the government, however that is just the idea i was thinking of.))((also hex after the new update i think you should probably be wearing your necklace unless you want to be arrested...))
