What's Happening? An RP
« on: April 03, 2017, 07:52:07 PM »
Wow. My bed feels strange this morning.

Opening her eyes, Bright Side blinked. Then, she screamed and got to a sitting position - or as close as she could.

"What the-" Gasping, Bright looked at the paws attached to her furry limbs. She glanced to and fro at the grass around her. For a moment, she sat in shock; time refused to move.

Then the fear came. It built up within her, spreading and spreading until she felt like she couldn't move.

Something weird had happened. Something weird. And she had to know...

"What's happening?" Bright moaned, burying her snout in her paws.

OOC: This RP takes place shortly after the events of Watership Down, the novel. We all start in a grassy field near Sandleford Warren (now destroyed).

OOC: I'M EXCITED :D

Chipster-roo was lying in the grass, half-asleep, with a soft breeze blowing through his fur.  This was a really amazing dream; how he dreaded waking up.

Suddenly, he heard a loud scream.  He jumped up and looked around him.  This sounded awfully real, not like a dream at all.  He scratched his left ear with his hind leg; that too felt real, too real to be a dream.  He really was a rabbit.  How weird.

He continued to look around him, and soon spotted another rabbit further away, who was pitifully lying in the grass with her front paws over her nose.  While in most situations he would have ignored her, he assumed she was the one who had screamed, and she might need help, so he hopped over to her.

“Uh, are you all right?” he said rather awkwardly.

 Crouching in the grass less then a meter from the other two rabbits, Dusty shivered in cold terror. The blades of grass, far larger then they should be, tickled his nose as every panicked breath left his body. His heartbeat nearly tripled its already alarming rate as a scream and a voice sounded from the two rabbits.

 Dusty shrank even further into the earth, his long ears pressing against his head, even though the sparse field offered little true cover. "Alright," he gasped in amazement. "What's wrong with me? What's wrong with her? Where are we?" The worried questions left him even before he could wonder about rabbits being able to talk. It all felt like a dream to him, a very real and terrifying dream.
In the darkest of nights, you can see the brightest of lights. So never let fear, rule your life. Let strength and courage be your guiding might, and never forget why you fight. For you, one of many, shall bring hope to our sight.

OOC: :D

BIC: “Uh, are you all right?”

Bright turned into the confused face of another...rabbit. Her boddy stiffened. Trying to keep from trembling, she scrambled to her feet. Whoomp! Not used to being a four-legged creature, she crashed to the grass. Feeling herself blush (was that even possible in her current state?), Bright threw herself back onto her paws.

"Oh, yeah, I'm fine. Thanks. I mean, for asking." Bright's awkward laughter suggested that she was lying. As much as she needed help, she didn't trust these...rabbits and needed to look like she knew what she was doing. Already failed that part...

"So, actually, no. I'm a bit lost and confused." Bright looked around at the hills. Other rabbits were nearby. Who on earth are they? "I was traveling, but now I'm lost. May you kindly let me know where we are?"

OOC: Oh yeah!  :bigwig3

Leo laid in the grass. It tickled his belly. Eyes closed, he felt a warm breeze coming from behind, brushing through his fur. This felt strange to him, he felt so sleepy. So tired. So many new odors, as his nose was twitching curiously. Suddenly his whole buddy twitched. Finally he managed to open his eyes, blinking a few times, for he was quite confused. "What?", he asked himself. Everything seemed so different. So much bigger. Then he looked downwards, and saw some pair of forepaws. Terrified he raised himself, sitting on his haunches, as he realized that those where his. "Oh my god!", the words slipped out of his snout, as he also saw the proper pair of hind paws attached to his body. He rubbed his eyes in confusion, only sitting there, looking from the ground, up to the clear sky. This had to be a dream. There was no other explanation.

As he examined the environment, in which he has landed, Leo saw a group of rabbits, not far away from him. With slow, insecure steps, he got under way to them, as they maybe have the answers what was going on here. I should be cautious, as I don't know them. Dream or not. Tho, still he was thinking all of this must be one. But it felt too awfully real. "Hey- H-Hello! C-an you help me?", he shouted at the others, his voice breaking, as he nearly tripped up on his own 'new' set of paws. This cannot be a dream.

 This was too much to take in and this vivid nightmare had gone on long enough. Dusty put his front paw inside his mouth and bit down.
 "Ow!" He squeaked in pain, flicking tiny droplets of blood onto the grass as he shook his paw trying to rid himself of the discomfort.

His teeth were sharp!

"I don't understand," Dusty whimpered, instinctively licking his paw. That helped a little. He hopped closer to the two rabbits, and they were soon joined by third. Maybe they could help him, any comfort or aid was better than none. But it didn't seem these rabbits knew what was happening any more than he did.

Chipster continued to look at Bright Side as she tried less than successfully to hide her embarrassment.

"I'm glad to hear you're all right," he replied rather awkwardly, "I was kinda worried when I heard you scream and...uh...actually, I was hoping you would be able to answer that question.  Where we are, I mean.  The only thing I remember is waking up in this field a few moments ago." Oh hraka, he thought, why did I just reveal this, she's going to think I'm crazy!

Chipster turned, and saw another rabbits cautiously approach.  The first one, a grey buck, said "Hey- H-Hello! C-an you help me?" Chipster awkwardly looked at him, trying to think of the best thing to answer.

"Uh, hello.  I'm afraid I can't help you, I'm lost and so is...uh..." he turned to the doe again.  "I don't know your name..." He suddenly stopped, as he noticed an unusual scent, and he soon managed to pinpoint its origin. A rabbit's nose really is amazing...

A short distance away was a fourth rabbit, a buck with mostly black fur.
"You're bleeding!" Chipster shouted in panic.  "We have to do something!  Does anyone know what to do?"

OOC = Original Own Character??????

OOC: OMG OMG OMG!!!  


----

While the other rabbits were still quite confused about this strange situation, suddenly one runs at full speed.

- HAHAHAHAHA THIS IS GREAT !. I AM A RABBIT! THIS IS THE MOST HAPPY DAY OF MY ...

But he accidentally stumbles and falls hard on the grass, getting sore right there. It was another unknown rabbit with sand-colored fur with ears and black tipped tail.
After a few moments he recovers and returns to run happily. However, he kept stumbling every 5 seconds. LOL

- HAHAHAHA I'M SO HAPPY, UGH ...

He stumbled again, standing in front of Leo.

- Auuuu @ _ @
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

 "No, it's nothing really. I'm fine." Dusty reassured the rabbit who'd seen the blood. He pressed weight down on the paw to prove this point, it only stung a little now. His whiskered twitched in appreciation, whoever this was had shown concern for his wellbeing. Surely he was in good company.

 "I don't suppose any of you happened to see how I got here? I - I just know this isn't right, I shouldn't be here, like this." Dusty straightened up to get a better look around, seeing nothing that he recognized nearby. His new body felt strange, but strong and full of energy.

While approaching closer to the strangers, he stopped abruptly a few steps away from them. Even more and more new scents came to his nose. Something metallic was in the air. And each scent to a specific thing or a someone, it seemed to him. Even before he got up to them, he was able to link them to each rabbit. Fascinating, and terrifying at the same time. He just wanted to anwer Chipster, as another rabbit popped right in front of him. This buck seemed  happy, not as confused as the others, and seeing him landing right in front of his paws, Leo even has to giggle a bit. This was just too strange to be a dream, so it was reality. He inhaled deeply once. Okay then, if this is real, I have to deal with it, the best way I can. Didn't you always want to be a rabbit yourself, Leo? Try to make it as most fun as possible! And don't act too strange, if these are real bunnies, act like one of them!

With a warm and friendly smile he looked down at Acacia, poking his nose once by his right forepaw. "Uh, hello down there - You alright?"
Only a few steps away now was the group of the other rabbits, standing in a circle in front of both of them. He looked at Chipster now finally reacting to his statement, "Seems like we're all a bunch of lost rabbits here, eh? I was just...", his voice brokef, as he wanted to say something like, he was sleeping in his bed, but that would make him sound like a weirdo for sure to the others. "Wandering around, and totally lost orientation, to be honest. It must have been days since I saw other rabbits!"
He then realized the bleeding paw of Dusty. "You need any help? Try to lick it, until it stops bleeding all alone." He smiled warmly at him, voice sounding soft, as he looked into the faces of the other rabbits. "Hey, I'm Leo!"

The rabbit with sand-colored fur was sore from stumbling, for he did not know how to run, nor use his legs properly. Apparently he was just like everyone, because he was also "transformed" and appeared there.

Even so, he jumped up energetically and stood before the gray-haired rabbit in a jolly way:

- Hello, Mr. Leo-Rah, it's a pleasure to meet you! My name is Acacia! I hope you are having a nice day like me. I'm having a great time, although I stumble a lot, but I do not care. Enjoy the moment HAHAHA

Acacia no longer runs, but now he is jumping from one side to the other. Look at the other rabbits like Dusty and Chipster-roo who looked sad, did not understand why. So he thinks about how he could help them, while still jumping with happiness, releasing his new body.

- WIII! HAHA  :fiver

While all this had been happening, Bright had been standing to the side, every muscle in her new rabbit body in tension. She still didn't know who these fellows were, didn't know what was going on...

One sentence broke into her escalating train of thoughts.

A gray buck with a wide smile announced, "Hey, I'm Leo!"

Bright's eyes widened despite herself. She froze as the sand-colored rabbit went on another ecstatic speech, during which he mentioned that he was called Acacia.

"Oh!" Bright sucked in a breath. "Oh, dear. I get it now." She swept her head at the bucks around her. "Are you all from Fiver's Honeycomb? I'm Bright Side."

Acacia: "OOC" means "out-of-character" :)


"Well, if you're sure you'll be all right..." Chipster turned away from Dusty, and hopped over to the others.  "Yeah, that seems like good advice...Leo..."

Chipster continued to stare at all the others; clearly all of them were as clueless as to what's happening as he was.  And this Acacia fellow...he seemed quite excited.

"Are you all from Fiver's Honeycomb?  I'm Bright Side," came the voice of the first rabbit he had met.

As he heard this, Chipster started to think.  The name "Fiver's Honeycomb" sounded very familiar...and suddenly it hit him.
"Yes!" he shouted.  "Brighty it's you!" He playfully tackle-hugged her.  "I'm Chipster.  It's so great to meet you!  Even if we're both rabbits."

 Doing as Leo suggested, Dusty licked his paw a few more times and the bleeding soon stopped. Looking up he listened as Bright Side made her discovery and the others revealed themselves. It was little consolation to him as he'd never been very active on Fiver's Honeycomb and didn't recognize the names as quickly. But at least he had a general idea of who he was with and where he was now.

 "Dusty," he introduced himself once the others had finished greeting. "I was on that forum as well, but I'm not around often." He shuffled his paws awkwardly. "You might not recognize me."

Relieved, he smiled, as his advice seemed quite helpful, and soon, his nostrils began to feel better now, without that dangerous, metallic taste in the air.
Leo just had to grin, at this excited, euphoric rabbit beside the other severe ones, as this situation soon is about to clear up. "Well then, it's an honor to meet you all", he smiled and bowed his head a little, his fore paws loosing ground for a brief while. Still, he didn't know, how this new body worked perfectly, especially his joints. It was just such a strange feeling.

He lifts his head again and listens carefully to the others, until he shook his head in dizzy. "Fiver's Honeycomb? This is impossible!", he looked at the others. Chipster, Bright, Dusty and  Acacia, it all rang a heavy bell now in his mind. "Oh my...", he gasps, "Yes! Yes, I also was on there! But... this is impossible. How were we all moved... or transformed... into this?", he looked around, and at his body, stretching one of his hind legs with those huge hind paws sticking to them. "And I was just thinking I might have one of the strangest dreams ever~", he sighs, more to himself.
