They told you it was only your imagination.

But it wasn't.

In the small town of Applubree, Maine things have gone on as they always have. Kids go to school and cause trouble. Adults go to work and try and keep the kids out of trouble. They are mostly a self-contained town as well and small enough that most people know one another. It's hard to find a person who doesn't know your family and probably tons of embarrassing stories.

Things have always been fine in Applubree. Or as fine as things can be for a town that is supposedly cursed. Way back in the days before the town was created it was a place where a tribe of Native Americans lived. When the colonists came to claim the place as their own, the leader of the tribe told them that it was a bad idea. But they were free to take the place. Rumor had it that the place was once the home to a dark, malevolent spirit that use to feed on the negative emotions and would lure off children of the tribes to their doom until it was sealed under the ground never to return. In order to ensure that it did not get set free a tribe was set over the place it was sealed.

But the tribe was tired of watching and keeping it at bay as they had lost people to the spirit as it worked to break free. The colonists thought this was stupid and took over the spot.

And so it was peaceful.

Yet there are reports of children disappearing each decade. Strange happenings as well. Things that cannot be explained and some that is better off left with no one knowing. It has always been this way. Those who believe in the old tale think it's the spirit effecting the town as it slowly moves back to the surface world to do as it wanted once again. Though these are few and far between.

Until that night.

The night of the Halloween Festival.

You weren't suppose to have gone off, but you did. Deep into the woods with a few others as well. Some of you may have been drinking. Regardless you all witness the same event. One of the drunks stumbled a little away from the group. It was dark and no one was really paying much attention. There was a blood curdling scream and you come upon the person, bloody and cut up, crying for help. Before being devoured by the very earth.

All agree not to speak of it, but it is impossible to run from something that wants you. That calls to you and invades your dreams.

You all saw the spirit at work and now it wants you. Maybe just to feed, maybe to get free, or maybe just to have some fun. Very few will believe you and information on the spirit is rare to find and mostly nonsense or so it seems. But you have a feeling it won't quit until it has you all.

Of course you really aren't the types people put much stock in in the first place. Misfits, outcasts. The weirdos mostly. Or those who are shy and awkward. Though this may be why the spirit is after you in the first place.

No matter what happens, you're going to have to stick together and fight against this thing. Unless you want to get eaten? I thought not. It has been a week since the event and the pull is weak, but present. Have fun my dear children.



Rules/Notes
Follow the normal rules of the site please.
The compulsion is weak right now, but it will not progress the same for everyone. Some may be more weak willed or strong minded than others.
You can have as many characters are you can handle.
You can have characters that weren't there to witness the Event. They must either be outsiders who get dragged into it or those who know about the legend of the spirit.
Also note this is a close knit town. You will most likely know all the other characters, even if it's just barely and most certainly all the witnesses will know each other. You may create pre-existing relationships in pms or do it once you see a character you wish to establish one with. Of course you must discuss it with the other person(s).
PLEASE be literate. No one-liners or short little paragraphs. But some thought into what you write.

Age: (All witnesses must be between 13-17. All others can vary as much as you like)

History:
Witness?: (If not how will they be related to the story?)
Other:

Name: Bailey Pond
Age: 14
Appearance:
History: Bailey was born as the only child to a semi-rich family. Her parents were rarely home when she was a child and so she was raised mostly by a nanny. Bailey had always been intrigued by dark things and was seen as creepy as a child. She was not really all that creepy or dark herself, but her interest in the occult and other strange things caused people to believe she was. She spent the entire sixth grade being called a witch and listening as people would insult her and call her names. It wasn't until the middle of seventh grade, where she scared off a bunch of students who was picking on a kid, that she embraced her status as a weirdo and the "dark, creepy chick". And despite not being a bad person and rather friendly, Bailey never stopped or lost interest in the darker things. In fact one of her favorite tales was of the spirit, although she rarely believed anything she would read or watch.

The worst thing was last year when her locker was vandalized and all her books and items were thrown all over the hallways. She lost a few things and many of her stuff got ruined and people didn't care and many of them trampled over her things or took them or threw them away. Bailey actually stayed out of school for a week and joked to a few friends she attempted voodoo to get revenge. This is what eventually lead to her breaking up with her then boyfriend as she was "too bitter" about the event, along with a few other things.

Despite this treatment, Bailey had a close group of friends. She also had a few boyfriends, which tended to be a few years older than her mostly. Bailey had just recently broken up with one as well, although they are still trying to make it work as friends, although Bailey still has feelings for him. She is not happy to finally be in high school either and has already endured some bullying from her upperclassmen and even her teachers have said that she needs to brighten up. She was with her ex when she was a witness to the Event, completely sober as well and had only gone off because of her ex.
Witness?: Yes
Other: Bailey carries around a mini doll key-chain on her backpack

Name: James Kingsly
Age: 17
Appearance:
History: James was born second to his twin sister Becca. As children he and his sister got along well enough. Even if they weren't as close as some twins were, they still cared about each other and were usually seen together. James was a shy kid and had a rather wild imagination, always dragging a friend or his sister off on some wild adventure. As he got older, he mellowed down and turned into something of a bookworm and a nerd. James also did his best to help out with school activities and ended up on the school's student council.

In high school though, he changed. He became less involved in school activities and although he was still a nerd, he tried to get involved more with other people. Still he had some trouble as he looked creepy to some people and he didn't always present himself well either, not always comfortable in social situations. He is also a known sort of teacher's pet and this drove him to be at the bottom of the social ladder in school. He still has a rather large imagination and works in the school's library as well. James was talking to a few of the people who went into the woods and decided to go as a way of trying to make friends.
Witness?: Yes
Other:

Name: Rebecca "Becca" Kingsly
Age: 17
Appearance:
History: Becca was born an hour ahead of her twin brother James. In their childhood, Becca was always the more levelheaded one, although she enjoyed playing make believe with her brother. Unlike him, she was rather good at talking to people and making friends. She had a wide circle of them and would always be off having a fun time. Becca is also an athletic after being recruited into track and field as a sixth grader. She found that she loved to run and kept on with it. She is also a soccer player as well and has done some other sports in her years of school.

Becca was somewhat blind to her brother's activities as they aged, but she always kept an eye on him and kept people from bullying him. She was friend's with a lot of the popular kids as a jock and so she was able to make sure that James was okay. Still she became a little distant as he focused on school and she focused on sports. She was with James during the festival, but went off before he joined the group into the woods. She has a feeling something happened, but she doesn't know what yet.
Witness?: No; Twin sister to James
Other:

Name: Natalie Becquerels
Age: 16
Appearance:
History: Natalie was born into a family of two brothers. She was somewhat bullied by them as a child, but because of this, Natalie started to defend herself and become more aggressive as a result. She would fight with her brothers and sometimes win them as well, wanting to prove she was just as good as the boys. Even in school, she would have an attitude and would pick fights and try and show that she was better. She got into a lot of trouble and also had a hard time making friends, especially with girls.

As she got older, she only got worse. She became a troublemaker and would cause all sorts of problems. She cared little for school and little for authority. She did have a few friends, mostly those who could either tolerance her aggressive behavior or were just as bad as her. She became sort of a rival to the popular girls and would always go out of her way to make their life hell. Still Natalie was not unaffected by their comments and this only made her hate them even more. In ninth grade, one of them, a girl that Natalie was brutal to in middle school, ended her relationship through lies and gossips. In tenth she spread a rumor, trying to paint Natalie as a whore, but it only kind of worked. Natalie retaliated in the best way she knew and beat her up.

Natalie was suspended and as a result was forced to take summer school so she would not have to repeat. Her father is gone, having left while Natalie was still in elementary school and her mother has no energy to try and tame her wild daughter, although Natalie is better at home and cares for her mother. She went along with the trip as she was drinking and was thinking it'd be fun to try and scare some of the others.
