I'm still here, however instead of checking daily it has gone down to weekly or perhaps even bi-weekly. I'll go read what's new.
Whoa, sorry, shit you guys. I've been so wrapped up in myself, that I didn't even realize we back in this! Anyways I have plenty of free time these coming months, so if you're all still in this, I'm still in this.
...Also, can someone PM me link to the other forum? I lost my bookmark for it awhile ago.
Other forum? Which one do you mean?
The one that Jefu was a mod of. At least I think he was a mod. Anyway, I used to have the link too but since I thought the place was pretty much dead, I got rid of it. It was Kaizokudude or something like that.
Not only do the RPs need rebooting, but so does the forum.
After reading through some of the better fight posts of this rp (ie:mine) to reignite my love for the characters, the world, this story, I just realized something, we went through 9 1/2 pages of Hamashira while Byouga Island has only lasted about 1 2/3rd pages when the rp winded down.
I think we can get things together again to finish this arc and get things going again.
Alright. What we should do is sit down and wonder what needs to be done, who should post (and what), and where we want to go from here.
I could go for a background/unifying-arc, where the characters reveal some story and get some "meat on their bones". Could be done through saving a home-island from evil pirates or marine search parties. Or if you want to tie things into the plot, PM me about possibilities to use the three factions or the war that is foreshadowed.
This is particularly helpful for me, since I am so swamped with work it's not even funny. I'll try to get some work in on thursdays and weekends. When I potentially have breathers.
If there is anything you wanna know, any questions, suggestions or whatever, toss me a PM or e-mail (Better than trying to reach me on MSN, since I am usually asleep from early in the afternoon, american time, and if not, chances are that I am reading, writing or otherwise preoccupied with studies. And by PM and mail, I have the messages saved somewhere, so they don't get lost in my epic chaos)
Edit: Hmm, maybe it's time to get a non-christmas sig?

Let me see. I think as far as Ravona is concerned she needs to finish shopping with Celest. Are any of the others still with them? I can't remember.
Besides that we have a cat creature walking around who we need to meet up with as a crew, one of our crewmen has been thrown in jail which we have not yet learned about so we might want to do that next.
I think Jefu was running around town alone so he might want to come back to the rest of us so we can continue. And I think Jefu is not the only one.
When the crew is back together we can focus on the story for this island, probably meaning we first need to get involved with the artists that live in the poor part of the island.
Since the arc is about art I think it might be good to know how much each character knows about art, Ravona is to emotionally withdrawn to truely understand art. She does have the observational skills to see if there any flaws in it (as long as it isn't modern art).
Ky: Currently breaking out of jail with a friend from his past named Myso.
Tevai: With Rio Nardo, an artist of Canvas City who wishes to make a statue of her.
Nelison: With Izzy and Jefu at a restaurant.
Celest and Ravona: shopping around and looking for Ky and Tevai at the same time.
Unknown: Chris and Yake. Chris will be dropped during this arc and Jefu said that he will stay in control of Yake.
Ms. Mona April: At the Canvas City Museum. Just accepted Ky's Windmill sword thingy as a piece of Modern Sculpture.
Vincent Vinci: Will be walking around town in despair that yet another painting of his was denied.
Sakiyama: Selling off his Saki rounds to the bars around Copic Village and Canvas City.

I don't think Izzy is in the restaurant with us, Jefu just encountered her before entering and becoming a random waiter. Nelison just entered and noticed Jefu, who had just had a little mix up with two "shady characters" whom I actually forget the main point of them @_@
Either way, Random or I can continue some interaction or something... not really sure where to go at the moment.
As for Yake, yes, I'll control him for a while but think I know a good spot we can drop him later. Chris, however, I don't know how to just make disappear in a believable-to-the-story way.
CRIM: I don't know if you still have an OLLLLLD PM I sent you about the Jefu's past Arc thingy but wanted to know if that was still doable after? Or if you had completely different plans for the people used in that.
Plot-related notes: I agree that getting back together might be a good idea, or at least get connected to the plot somehow. I definitely think that to finish this arc we're gonna need some communication going on here.
Also, I don't believe I've said this before but the bounties are quite amusing. I can't wait to see how the crew reacts to them, especially Nelison when he realizes that they left the "i" out of his name.
I really should be studying for a test right now, so I'll be back.
In honor of Super Smash Bros. Brawl coming out next week, I decided to do something fun. I'll finish the rest of them later. Try to guess who they are! Also, the original Kirby template plus the idea itself is credited to VGCats and its owner.

After reading the new (and awesome) posts, I feel like I have some ideas to throw in finally. However, I'm wondering how this will continue. If it goes on in One Piece fashion, I'm assuming April will run into Ky's group, they'll notice the sword and get caught up in the whole situation, thus becoming obligated to help.
So, if that's the case, I will lead Jefu's group to become involved through different means so that eventually the entire group will come together for the big finale. THis arc may end up being shorter than planned since we lost steam in the beginning and its hard to get juices flowing for something that got a little stale from waiting.
Also, is Smartz still around? I have no idea what's going on with Tevai nor is he posting anything involved with her. Okami, did you have certain plans set for Tevai or what?
Also, as far as I know, the groups currently are:
1) Ky, Celest, Ravona
2) Jefu, Nelison, Izzy
with Chris and Yake seperated entirely.
I'm going to have Yake find Jefu's group and join up I guess so perhaps one of you could RP Chris joining up with Ky's group? From there we can do what we need to do to continue this arc. Or something.
I'll throw a post up tomorrow to show you my ideas for the arc that will connect to Saitou.

Not too sure on how Izzy looks so I'll have to guess a little, but that'll be later. I may or may not do Chris and Yake. Speaking of Chris, I believe he actually is with Celeste, it's just that he's fading into the background as an obscure and ignored person.
Kirby in a bra....not quite as cute as originally thought, but still, awesome Kirbies.
Also, Tevai is with Rio Nardo, and I guess I might as well divulge this info, villain #2 of this arc. He has the power of the Clay Clay Fruit and when said that he wanted to make a statue out of Tevai, he meant that literally so when the group has to come together for the big brawl with Mr. Saitou, we'll have to rescue her and defeat him as well. Unless there's a way to do both at the same time....
The Clay Clay Fruit works like Mr.3's Candle Candle Fruit. He can make clay come out of his body and shape it anyway he wants, but he can't become Clay like a Logia type.

two weeks until my final exam and final paper are due in the only class relevant to my interests AND my major this quarter, after which i'm going to celebrate tequila tuesday and get as thrashed as the remainder of a very small bottle of decent tequila will allow me. but, then i'll have almost two weeks free, and hopefully, germ free to get down to the business of posting like i said that i would... 3 months ago... also probably gonna take a skip on over to LotS and attempt to pump some life back into that. maybe i'll kill takashi, since toes isn't around any more to bitch...
That should be it for now. I had attempted to make Peso's William but I can't seem to make the slicked back hair that I imagine him having. And I am too lazy to make any more kirbys for now, precious as they may be. With luck, they'll add these guys to the next version of Super Smash Bros.
Speaking of LotS, I kinda sorta wanna make a post there as well. I'll have to do some rereading and find out what's left to do though.
Hmm, if Takashi is out of LotS, it kinda takes away what makes LotS what it is. Nobody else wants to become Shichibukai, thus making the title pointless, and he just made it what it is. Not praising Toesy or his character really, but saying that I don't know if it can continue on without him.
Back on 5 Oceans, I beleieve I can make a next move but I need to confirm something with Okami. That being how Rio and Saitou are connected AND which of the two would have hired a bunch of bodyguards for us to fight. The part of my post where Jefu mixes up papers with the two mobsters in the restaurant was gonna be the catalyst that leads one group to find either Rio or Saitou where a bunch of hired hands will keep some members busy as the select few fight the big baddies.
That could be easily done if you got on msn/aim once in a while.
ON TOP OF THAT, YOUR INBOX IS FULL!

I think I may have scared him off with my stalker letter.
Good to see that we are moving again ^^
I have been plotting a scheme to write Chris out, since his strings seems to have been severed. Don't want to write Tevai out, so I hope Smartz pops in soon. Gonna send him a message on MSN about it.
If people are around during easter, I should have some time to get into things. But I don't wanna step on people's efforts, so I will try to limit my intervention to main-plot stuff.
Sorry I haven't been saying much, I've just been kind of lost and/or forgetful about this whole thing. It's been too long for me, so I'm having to catch up.
Also nice Kirbys there Loc.
Great Kirbies (sp?) Loc!
Now I have to actually read the RP? In what universe do things actually happen in this thread.
Good to see it getting back on track. Huzzah!
And I'm assuming it's safe to assume Peso can now join in on the next arc seeing how we're losing at LEAST 1 crew mate, if not 2 during this Arc?
