"I am dead because I lack desire; I lack desire because I think I possess; I think I possess because I do not try to give; In trying to give, you see that you have nothing; Seeing that you have nothing, you try to give of yourself; Trying to give of yourself, you see that you are nothing; Seeing that you are nothing, you desire to become; In desiring to become, you begin to live." (Rene Daumal)
“To them, we are monsters disguised as humans.”
overview
the storyi
Birth, Life, and Death. That is the cycle that this world’s laws act upon which not even humanity can overwrite. Or can they?

Frantically, while scribbling away to find some sort of purpose, people grasp at the pages which have long run out. Drawing their last breath, their final chapter is written into oblivion, and what’s left behind is only a cesspool of regrets. That is, until a strong will towards life heeds death’s invitation to the next hidden chapter.

Some simply wake up and move on with their mundane lives; others find that the world is no longer quite so ordinary—you being part of the latter. Is it a new power stirring within you? Is it something seemingly paranormal hanging about in the air? Whatever the case, you all find yourselves drawn to “Noah’s Ark” in the end, or perhaps it’s the other way around.

You have questions. Noah’s Ark has the answers. “Elegies,” they call people such as yourself. You are one of the select few who return from the brink of death, wielding your strongest regret in the form of a special ability. However, this phenomenon isn’t always a gift: those who fall prey to their regrets become lifeless, hollow abominations. And Noah’s Ark is tasked with two missions. The first is to keep these “failed” Elegies from the eyes of mankind, and the second is to find the source of their powers itself.

welcome to the cafei
To the common person, Noah’s Ark is a unique cafe that continues to rise in popularity. With good drinks and food, an array of colorful staff, and animals free for petting, the cafe can be anything from a place of relaxation to entertainment. However, the cafe’s fame can be most attributed to a particular rumor: an order of “Stella’s secret rose latte” is a special signal requesting the cafe’s side services of being a detective agency of sorts. Of course, said service isn’t free of charge, but whether it be finding a lost pet to something more paranormal, their success is guaranteed!

Beneath all the rumors, Noah’s Ark is, in truth, an organization of Elegies—individuals who are gifted with supernatural abilities. As a result of being hunted down by the government as potential threats to public peace and safety, the manager, Stella Kleist, forged a mutual benefit contract with the government and founded the cafe as their base of operations. Elegies under her custody are to be left alone in exchange for assisting in situations that ordinary units would not be able to handle. Of course, they are to keep their existence a strict secret lest the contract be rendered null-and-void. Should they break their vow, even Stella can’t protect them from the hands of the government.

hello hello!i
Welcome to Noah's Ark, an urban fantasy roleplay run by Nano and Birb! In this rp, the main cast will be something called Elegies, humans who should have died but were brought back by a strong regret which further manifests as a supernatural power based on that regret. Chapters will be episodic, with each being its own little mission of sorts, whether it be a "paranormal" job request from a customer at the cafe or an official mission sent from the government. Significant details clueing into the larger plot will be sprinkled bit-by-bit into each chapter. I'll explain more in the lore, so I'm sorry if any of this confuses you! I'm still in the midst of adding the finishing touches to the lore and all, so the official threads won't be up until a few more days. Until then, please bear with me. ; w ;

As for posting requirements, I'd prefer for this rp to be casual and more lax, so anything goes as long as we keep the ball rolling. If you want something more specific, a paragraph or two will suffice, though more is welcome! I will also say that I want to keep a weekly posting quota at the start of the rp, but I fully expect and won't mind the replies getting more spread out as we progress in the rp. Just let me know when you plan on taking extended breaks!

I think that's it? In any case, feel free to drop by with any questions~ c:

EDIT: We have a discord! Just ask below, and I'll add you to the PM that has the server link. ;o

So what are some example of powers of your not-so-average Mahou Shoujos "Allergies" Elegies?

The concept sounds really nice!

I know you've tagged a lot of people, but if you have a spot free I'd be very happy to participate in this ^^
I won't be closing this thread until another four or so people, so no worries! You're more than welcome o/

Good thing you asked, because I just noticed I didn't write down a crucial details whoops. The government is a bit strict about who gets a pass, so anyone with a power that they deem as too dangerous to safely coexist within society is detained for...well, that'll be revealed eventually. In any case, anything dangerous enough to cause notable destruction or harm (killing/kidnapping/etc) with ease is banned. This one isn't so much for lore reasons, but I'd also like the avoid powers that can disrupt the RP itself such as weather/time manipulation ; w ;

An example of one of the powers is Rosie's (Birb's character) where she was run over by isekai truck-kun, and her main thoughts were essentially "get off me" which later translated to telekinesis. I say that the power is formed by the regrets (which it is), but it is also be shaped by the person's individual personality plus the circumstances concerning how they died.
