@Kuro_San: thanks if you didin't know his names Zed from Kiba
A red curtain moved to the side, revealing a wooden stage. It stage looked quite old, the wood eaten by termites and the light above it flickering. On the edge stood a brand new microphone connected to some speakers on both sides of the stage and it stood out in that run-down place. In the very center of the stage, walking towards the microphone, was an overweight teenage boy. His steps were short and quick as if he was in a rush and his knees appeared to be shaking ever so slightly. Even while walking, he held his hand in front of his chest and was playing with his fingers. His gaze was fixed to the floor and his semi-long brown hair covered his eyes. His clothes weren't all to formal, consisting of a pair of dark blue jeans and a black shirt with an Ork skull and crossed bones on it, all covered by a white plaid shirt., though it was as formal as he dared. He hated wearing suits.
When he reached the microphone, he raised his head, moved the hair covering his face, took a deep breath, lowered his hands and cleared his throat. Then he started talking in a shaky voice. Considering how nervous he felt, just a shaky voice meant he managed to hide her nervousness extremely well. "Welcome everybody, to the fifth Monthly Vice Awards Ceremony. My name is ChronoWolf, CWolf to those who are too lazy to write my full name, and I shall be your host on this wonderful evening, noon morning or whatever it is over in your city. I am sad to say this, but the voters response to this was pathetic. It took a lot of convincing and talking to get some votes. But you are forgiven this time and this time only, as a lot of you are either new members who have no experience in the RP forum or are old vets who just came back from a long hiatus. Ah, I believe this is enough talking for now. I'm right on the verge of fainting to be honest." CWolf clapped his hands once and the old shabby stage was engulfed in flames as some rock music started playing and the whole auditorium faded to black.
The music stopped and the auditorium came back, revealing a still ongoing flame. In the next second, the flames disappeared, extinguished by unknown means, revealing that ChronoWolf was no longer standing where he was seen last and that the whole stage changed. It was made of the finest wood and polished to perfection. There was a set of stairs at the edge covered by a red carpet for the award winners who felt like climbing up and saying something. The red carpet led from the stairs towards a round, elevated part in the center. When everyone's eyes turned towards that part, a spotlight light it up and revealed that it was covered in red rose petals. There were two comfy-looking crimson sofas next to and at an angle from each other, facing towards the crowd and the center of the round elevation.In the one on the right, from the audiences point of view, was sitting ChronoWolf , arms resting on the backrest of the sofa and the ankle of one leg on the knee of the other. He seemed like a completely different person from the one introducing the Ceremony to the crowd. "LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, LOLIS AND SHOTAS, PLEASE WELCOME MY CO-HOST, ARTHUR CROMWELL!!!!!" Cheer erupted from the crowd, especially from fan girls, as the teenage-looking, coat-wearing, raven-haired man walked out from the backstage. His eyes were as green as ever, or was it the glitter his make-up artist made him put around his eyes, and his hair was cut short unlike the standard shoulder-length.
"Thank you, thank you. I'm glad to be here. I was kind of worried you'd choose Matt to be your co-host over me. Good to know that you value me that much." He walked over to the sofa CWolf wasn't on and sat there.
"Sure, don't mention it. I must ask though, what did you do to your hair?"
"Huh? Oh, I cut it for The Race. It kind-of bugged me under that helmet, you know. But enough about me, what have you been up to lately?"
"Me? Nothing much. I discovered some stuff about the world and more stuff about myself. But let's not get into details right now. The crowd came to find out who and what is the most epic thing to happen to the vice in the month of November, so let us begin."
"As you wish my master. The first category is..."
A: Ah, the majestic hero. Always so gracious, so powerful. I thank you for voting for me.
CW: Woe there cowboy, you weren't even nominated.
A: What? Oh, I get it. I'm classified as True neutral in your book. I suppose I couldn't even get nominated here if I wanted. But I don't want it since hero's are too idealistic for my liking anyway.
CW: Sure... Anyway, we have a tie here ladies and gentleman. Yes, a tie in the first round. Arthur, if you'll have the honors.
A: My pleasure. The winners are Matthew Anderson and Samson Shinoda. Wait a second! Since when is Matt a hero?
CW: Since always...? What? You don't think that he's deserving of that? Well at least he isn't as arrogant as you can be sometimes.
A: Fine, fine... Moving on.
A:Thank you, thank you! I couldn't win this without your lovely support. I wrote a song for this special occasion and am going to play it for you now.
CW: STOP! Remember how much you suck at singing? You might be able to play a guitar and violin, but don't dare to sing. Samson sings better in the shower.
A: oh, fine then. I guess I'll just take my reward them,
CW: Actually, you weren't even nominated.
A: WHAT! WHAT BLASPHEMY IS THIS??!!
CW: Pipe down you big baby. You weren't nominated. Big deal. The actual winner is Phantom! Everyone give a big hand to the thief but make sure to remove your watch first, or you'll never see it again.
A: Aw, that's not fair. He isn't even a neutral anymore. He seems more like Hero.
CW: The crowd has spoken. Moving on.
A: Seriously,was there ever any doubt that he'd be the winner?
CW: Actually, yes. I doubted that since he only just appeared again. Why would they choose someone who didn't even do anything yet? And don't say he's doing that submarine thing or I'll slap you.
A: Wow, they're having a foursome over here and I wasn't even invited.
A: Fine. There was no unanimous vote here so that means we have the following victors: Raven VS. Kat and Dante. A good one in my opinion. Certanly deserved the nomination.
CW: Floor 73 of HS, FCL (with fake SamJaz) vs. Space beast of pure darkness, an evil Old God of the Warhammer universe. Heh, I liked that one. You got time freeze and time slow. I did intend for you to get those at one point but in the far future. Meh, ahead of schedule isn't that bad I guess.
A: Oh, yeah I liked that. But what do you mean by time slow?
CW: Obviously, if you can freeze time you can slow it as well. Anyway, read out third winner.
A: FCL Vs. Dragons. Let me guess. You love this one.
CW: Why would I? It's not like it was my floor or anything...
CW: Hehe. Moving on, our fourth and last winner is Dante and Jayden Vs. Grand Titan... I have no comment on this one since I stopped paying attention soon after those two reached the AoT rip-off floor in their little MMO.
A: Yeah, too much of a rip-off for my liking as well, though it's The Grand Titan. It had to be awesome. I could still one-shot it though.
CW: Whatever floats your boat sweaty.
A: Space marines take over Dai. Hell yes. I only wish you took me instead of Jack for that one.
CW: Hey, I used Jack once. For three posts! He needed a little work out. Besides, I enjoyed running away from the OP "normal human" cowboy wanna be, as well as the dog torture scene.
A: You are a messed up individual. Since only three people even voted in this category, I feel that we should mention the other nominee. Aleister making his Paradox clone shoot himself. Ah, one of the better parts of Floor 72. Too bad I was stuck in the naked run while they were chilling in the beach mansion. Thank you for that Sam.
A: Aw man. These guys are having a threesome and I still wasn't invited.
CW: I will slap you. I'm serious. I was a well adjusted individual until I started RPing you. And now I'm a lolicon because of your influence. And you're a lolicon because of the influence of a certain friend of mine.
A: And you call me a crybaby. But enough talk. Let's announce the winners. Atem the Hentai. Hehe. I'm not sure what was better, Rica's answer when Lizzy asked her what a hentai was or the way Atem had a slight breakdown.
CW:Next we have Lincent and Coleen talking. That's all. Well, if by talking you mean Lincent being a bigger pervert then you, then yeah, that's all.
A: Finally, we got a trio consisting of Matt, Phantom and Cole drawing "pornography". I still think the stick figures were the best even when compared to Cole's incredibly realistic drawings.
CW: Heh, kind of wish I could see those for real instead of just imagine them from a description.
A: It was a damn good description though. *Hides a tissue*
CW: I hate you.
A: Let me guess, Crown and Clare?
CW: Nope. But the answer is difficult. If I count my vote the winner's are Margaret and Sandy. Who the other person that voted for them is, I will never tell.
A: And if don't count your vote, it's those two, C&C, lame and boring compared to your lesbian couple, and Crown and Hagane, less boring and lame though it didn't happen yet and there is a chance that it will not, but whatever.
A: Oh, if only more people voted. There would be a lot less ties, I'm sure.
CW: Probably, but I'd get less awards too so I don't mind.
A: And yet you still forced people to vote...
CW: And that proves that I didn't tamper with the results. Or did I? DUN DUN DUN
A: No, you didn't. I was watching you
CW: But I write you. I could just be lying even now. Besides, doesn't implying that I'm innocent make me un-innocent?
A: That's silly, you're silly, bye now. Ah Umineko Abridged, why we love you so.
CW: Going back to the topic at hand, the best rivalry goes to three people : Gen and Phantom, which I don't even remember happening. It's that old Sam. That old! Why would you vote for old stuff in a monthly awards ceremony?! The second one is Raven and SamJaz. It's not really that old, I guess. Though I'm not sure if they're exactly rivals, but whatever.
A: Remember the Jewels Sake and Bar conversation they had? They seemed rivalish... I think. Third winner is Lincent and Arthur, he guesses. I'd be honored if I wasn't sharing this with THREE other people. Not only that, but Linc is included in my award! I hate him. OK, no I don't he's awesome but it's more fun to fight with him. Which we should do again since we stop after our freezing nude run thingy. I still feel his naked skin on my hands... Why did I save him? I feel so dirty right now. So dirty. So dirty. DO YOU HEAR ME?! SO DIRTY, LINCENT YOU ASSHOLE, I'LL KILL YOU FOR MAKING ME DIRTY! *gets up and picks up sofa*
CW: Cut the feed, cut the fe-
CW: Welcome back. Arthur had some problems so we thought of bringing in Matt as a replacement. As soon as we mentioned it to Arthur however, he calmed down. Wonder why since I prefer him over Matt anyway. You just get this connection with your firstborn, you know. So, Arthur, you feeling better?
A: Sure, sure. Let's move on with this. Just let me say sorry to my fans who I'm sure were scared and or scarred by my actions. And besides, I got to carry a naked Kelly as well on the same floor, right? Suck it Matt.
A: Only two votes... Though the votes were slightly different, the result would be Sam, Phantom and I bromancing that shiz up since that's better then just spliting it into two winners despite one containing me and the other not. Next!
CW: What, no lame jokes here? No stupid conversation? Nothing? Huh.
A: One vote Hellscraper, one vote Ryugu-Jo and one vote for a tie between those two.
CW: We need to keep in mind that Holy Grail Rebellion wasn't made when those votes were cast. But it can get the award next month.
A: You know, all these RPs that require making a one-shot character are kind of annoying. I mean, how can you use me in them?
CW: Yeah... I think I'm glad that I can't use you there.
A: *Sticks out tongue*
CW: Where in the world did you get those fans, you child?
A: Better ask in what world. Hint: Krynn.
A: Huh... I'm guessing that it's not really a tie.
CW: I suppose... This one has a tie between HS and R-J, two R-J and an HS.
A: So... R-J?
CW: With my vote it's a tie...
A: So R-J.
CW: Exact- No wait, I forgot to count AnimeDefender's vote... With my vote it's a win for HS.
A: But you manipulated AD into voting for HS...
CW: I wouldn't say manipulate exactly... I just told him the life story of HS and he voted for it.
A: ... Ryugu-Jo wins.
A: And it's a four-way tie! Again... *sigh*
CW: First winner is Houzi, who I'm guessing is one of Kuma's NPC's in R-J which is the only RP that I did not follow at least until the end of the first page.
A: And why didn't you?
CW: Because those posts are extremely long! It just feel like bother to read through it if I don't have to.
A: But you don't mind reading the posts in HGR, even though they too are long and you don't really need to read through them?
CW: Fine, I'm jealous of their writing skills there, which is counter-acted by Galanbeta's lack of said skill in HGR.
A: Second winner is Senji Okajima. Not a bad choice. Third winner is Hitomi. Oh yeah. Think Sam will let me end up with her?
CW: Doubt it. Not that I'd let that happen unless Matt and Kelly become a thing anyway.
A: Sam, I'll hurt you.
CW: The last winner is... Lincent! Yes! I love Lincent. He's awesome. But don't tell Feha. Feha, forget you read this.
A: Hey, you know what I just noticed? This was the last category that has anything to do with character and barring the rivalry one which I still don't count, I wasn't voted for anything...
CW: What's your point?
A: My point is that I?m leaving.
CW: And how do you plan on dong that?
A: Like this. *Gets up but promptly sits back down* What the?
CW: See Arthur, in this world I am God? Why? Because God is omnipotent and us Writers have something that far surpasses even that. In our dimensions, we have Writerpotence, which is a name that still needs working on...
A: No, crap.
CW: ...And what Writerpotence let's us do is perfectly control what you do, think or want to think. Sure, sometimes you take control of us if we feel like escaping the real world and just want to drown in your own personality, which results in us getting strange tastes, like a taste for lolis, but I assure you, we. Are. The Real. Masters.
A: So why didn't you do that for the rivalry thing I did back there?
CW: Because I lost control of myself and let you into the pilot seat, completely forgetting about our power.
A: Fine, I'm not leaving then. Happy?
CW: Not really, but whatever.
A: My lovely writer is the best writer there is, right?
CW: Exactly. It was a unanimous decision that I'm the winner.
A: Make sure not to check with the other voters if I'm lying about this one. I mean, that's a waste of energy. Don't do it. Seriously.
CW: Jokes aside, this one is obvious. Kuma. However, as promised, ShadowChaos gains an honorable mention as he did get a vote.
CW: You know, I can keep this up all day.
A: I do.
CW: And are you gonna do anything to stop me?
CW: You know very well.
A: He did get two votes you know.
CW: I have two things to say. First, after both votes, it was stated JK, which stands for just kidding.
CW: Second, Kuma still got more votes.
CW: OH, and I think this was set up.
A: ... *Leans his head on his left shoulder making a quizzical look*
CW: Kuma was absent for a long time here. I don't think he deserves this one. Not to mention that there is at least one more person who, in my own and Kuma's own opinion, deserves the award more. AnimeDefender. If there's one person who showed more sportsmen-like behavior then AnimeDefender, I do not know who that person is, because they don't exist.
Vicer of the Month:
A: I deny this winner with all my heart.
CW: I agree.
A: Listen, Kuma, its not that we have anything against you, but really, you were absent for a long time. You just came back. You didn't do much. Even though I'd agree any other time, I cannot agree now.
CW: I concur. That's why this award goes to ShadowChaos who was the only other nominee. Enjoy your trophy Shadow.
ChronoWolf and Arthur got up from their seats. "This was a wonderful event, which I hope I will never again have to host. And I'm sure Arthur agrees with me. It's not that it wasn't fun, but it was damn hard. I hope you guys like our little show..." CWolf stopped for a second, as tears started appearing in his eye. Arthur gave him a tissue and continued speaking in his stead. "And if you want to say something, you have a chance now. Or you can take your reward and pussy out. Just leave and pretend that these were nothing special. But know that you will be hated."
ChronoWolf, his eyes now dry, snapped his fingers and a seemingly infinite number of doors opened instantly, different signs slowly materialising above them. There were names of various continents, countries, cities, street names and different names and nicknames on those signs. "Just exit through the doors with your name on it, and you'll go home. What I built here for hours, this stage, this speech, everything will disappear behind you and only minutes will have passed for you. Those that want to stay here for a little while and talk, this stage is ready for you. You can stand in the center of the stage or you can sit down, even fly if you want. The two of us will stay here and listen to you. "
"Make that three." Matt stood up from his seat.
"Four." jack stood up as well. He can make a nice painting out of this.
"Five, I guess. At least these DEM assholes are gonna get pissed for me wasting my time." Thomas stood up with a grin which showed his fangs.
"Six!" Elizabeth stood up as well, cheery as ever.
"Six, seven and eight, soon to be nine, ten, eleven and twelve" A red-haired woman in a green dress stood up. Margaret, who was quickly followed by Alex and Sandy and four other figures, though the other four were obscured by a dark mist. Still, it was obvious that at least one had a hurt and bleeding hand.
CWolf smiled. "Fine. Everyone who wants to stay and watch is allowed to do so. Those that don't want to do so are still free to leave."
Arthur and ChronoWolf walked on the red carpet and down the steps, taking the nearest seat which was abandoned by the people who left and relaxing in it. They hoped for at least one person to come up and entertain them.
A tall, bespectacled young man wearing a suit and tie took the stand. He combed his thick brown hair out of his face, the result of procrastinating a visit to the barbers, and he scratched his chin as he stood before the Vice.
"So, I took a lot of tied victories this month." He said, looking various individuals in the eye. "A lot of this is thanks to Chronowolf of Fehafare, they have been great in the Hellscraper with me, putting up with my antics and my constant badgering them to post. Granted, I'm sure that without a good measure of badgering, the Hellscraper probably would have been forgotten about like a lot of other RP's that have been undertaken this year, and I'm glad that something that was started right at the start of the year is still going today. It's nearing its end, sure, and were it not for Holy Grail Rebellion, I'm sure that Hellscraper would meet its close with the year of 2013. As it happens, There are still a number of battles to be fought, more than a handful of twists left on the road, enemies to face and allies to make before we come to a close, but the end is in sight.
"When the Hellscraper is concluded, I feel we will have something the vice lost during my departure in 2010. At that time, I was an enthusiastic newbie, and I looked up to the greats. Newdeath, Wilyvereb, OmegaMekix, Kashif, Nerx, Cfatalis, Superevil225, Blindside and Sonata. Kuma was there too, but if I remember right, he was just starting out too. I left for a couple of years, then returned to find this place dead as a doornail, with all my old friends gone. After a few failed attempts to get the place running again, Hellscraper happened. I was hoping for something casual and fun, where we could advance the plot without relying on waiting for others to post, something I believed to be the bane of RPing at the time.
"Instead, we got an epic bromance. But more importantly, we built friendships that will keep us coming back to the Vice for what I hope will be years to come.
"I look forward to seeing these characters, and these players, take part in more stories in the future, building an interlacing web of memories where we can create a new, epic mythos of anime-based storytelling, without relying of taking directly from our favourite stories.
"Here's to you, Vice. The podium is yours."
With that, the speaker descended the stairs to the stage and approached the buffet table.
A stout young man with short hair and long beard gets on the stage, he grabs the mike and speaks -Thank you all for you votes, I hope this signals a new beginning for the forum. I'll try to match the expectations revealed in this voting. Get ready for Kuro-san storyline, I'll try to get every character involved... and dont forget to challenge Gen, he likes a good fight... Once again thank you for the votes- after that he exits the stage by jumping from it and goes back to his table to keep eating like an animal
PS: We need to pick next month host
