08.09.20. - Just a small update for you this month to bring you our August Promo featuring our black market shops! Additionally, thank you to all who posted in our Activity Check! if you did not get a chance to post in our AC or post an away message and are concerned for your characters, please reach out to Jello as soon as possible!
It's officially summer in Anrui, and the heat is here to prove it! Pokemon are out in droves, all trying to find some relief from the heat. Be careful - they're a little extra testy during heatwaves, and you don't want to get caught between them and some refreshing shade!
Welcome to the Anrui Region, where training is illegal. The Anrui Region is a desolate and lonely place, a once bustling region that has lived under the oppression of Team Plasma for many years. Plasma took over and outlawed training of Pokemon. Raids occurred and people and Pokemon alike were killed. Back alley gym matches were held, but people remain terrified to overthrow Plasma. Who will you side with, Plasma? Or The Resistance?
One of our most welcoming, loyal, and patient of members can be found in Bee - who has been a member for two years now! Always friendly and active in both OOC and IC spaces, Bee is often one of the first people that new members are greeted by and lends a face of familiarity and kindness to any of Anrui's frontiers. With immaculate detail to each masterfully crafted post he writes, as well as the memorable and relatable qualities of his lifelike characters, Bee is a joy to roleplay with and a treasure to Anrui. We're honored to spotlight Bee as our Member of the Month!
As hardened as she is fierce, Nell Stark is a wonderful example of when the extremities of Anrui's political climate are pushed too far on a breakable human mind. Protective of her ideals and morals to the point of defection, watching how Nell is portrayed adapting to the side of the enemy she was once factioned against through her front of snappy indifference is equally parts fascinating and ambiguous. We're happy to announce Nell Stark as our Character of the Month!
In our Thread of the Month oh, life is bigger, Desmond Winters has been in prison for a decade now for murder and procuring, having fully accepted his fate of rotting in the concrete box - that was, until Phoenix Delgado, head researcher of RIVER on the hunt for a new assistant intern, showed up one fateful afternoon. With Desmond's subpar interview skills and Phoenix's cutthroat choosiness, these two collide and find that the traits once considered to be undesirable by others in a professional setting somehow fit together like puzzle pieces.
"Women want me, fish fear me. As loud as it typically was, he had never grown used to the rush of noise - the absolute cacophony - that rushed to his head, every time he would catch small glimpses of ripples and mistakes within the fabricated realm which held him willingly captive. Glitches in the simulation during which the veil would be tattered, fluttering about in the winds of unknown change and what lied behind the wall. Welling inside of him, something was wrong. So entirely, entirely wrong; the same kind of wrong as when he was certain he had left the stove on, or hadn't locked his door. The same wrong that rendered the atmosphere dense and strange, though apparently invisible to his eyes. They had probably forgotten to have her change before being sent out to collect him. Or warn him. Or terrorize him." - Julian Miller, A[D]VERSARY

*PEEKS BACK IN*
it'll be immediately obvious who i am to some people once i get my icons up and running, since my face claim for this character will give it away RIGHT away, but i'm a returning member/former admin (oops. that probably gives it away even before seeing my face claim) who has so much god damn free time rn i figured i'd dip my toes back in as a regular member. might apply for moderator later, depending on how things go, since i'm gonna be moving soon and i don't wanna get ahead of myself before i start working again.
for now: i'm testing out a new name for myself, so for those who know me, i ask that you call me sophi for now! i probably won't be remaking my old characters (unless i totally, completely revamp them, which is a possibility), but i know i had 2-3 pokemon set aside for me to reclaim in the event i returned, so i'll likely end up doing that and saving them or using them for this character.
some things about me: i'm pretty involved in the danganronpa fandom (yes danganronpa sucks. i know. its legit bad, but i'm an adhd bitch and i'm stuck in this special interest hellhole), im an artist working on getting my own merchandise shop up and running (and i take commissions!), my pronouns are she/they (no preference) and im agender. also, i'm married, and will be moving to canada to finally live with my spouse in early july.
i'll rejoin the discord in my own time. hello people i already know, it's great to be back, and nice to meet you people i haven't met yet!!

I got a feeling I do know who you are! I'm also still just as bad with words and writing as always, but it'll be good to see you around the discord, SOPHIE MOCHIZUKI . It'll be nice to see your muses around (even if I haven't quite met these muses) and I know I look forward to seeing you around.
