Hope Is What They Crave(Lit. & ded. only)

HopeIsWhatWeCrave posted this thread...
Oct. 9, 2012 at 2:15 am

The year is 2185, and the whole world held its breath. They were on what they thought was the brink of WWIII, and while each country had sworn that, if war broke out, they would not use nuclear weaponry. However, the USA wanted a secret weapon to get them ahead. And so, without consulting the UN or telling anyone what they were doing, the US government secretly began developing a new drug which, when injected into the spine, would give that person unique powers that people had only imagined before. They called the drug N01 when it was finally complete. They gathered a group of 50 orphaned infants, and gave them each an injection.
What happened was far greater then anything the scientists had expected. Each infant's body reacted differently to N01, causing each to develop unique powers. No infant had the same ability as another. One baby could(and would) burn anyone or anything that touched him. Another could disappear at will. Still others showed no signs of change, but after numerous tests the scientists concluded that these children had talents they did not know how to use them, such as mind-reading.
The government kept the children hidden for several months, nurturing them and helping them to grow strong and healthy, waiting for the time when they would be old enough to go to war.
But the war did not come. Instead, a fair decision was made. The whole world could breath again.
Inside the government labs, the now one year old babies continued growing, their talents becoming even stronger and more remarkable. The scientists had a decision to make. Now that war was no longer expected, what were they to do with the babies? They did not want to keep the children in the labs any longer than necessary, (A group of 50 normal toddlers is no picnic, much less 50 children with special abilities.) but they also did not want children who burnt anything they touched running rampant about the country. So they developed a new drug to counteract the first, N02, rendering their powers useless. After watching the children for signs of their powers returning, and making certain that they didn't, the scientists released the children into the adoption system, no one being the wiser.
What the scientists did not know was that the new drug did not completely undo the effects of N01. Instead, it simply suppressed the powers, and the chemicals lay dormant. The children grew up with no knowledge of their powers. Many of them had children of their own. Chemicals from both drugs remained in the children of the original 50. But the chemicals of N02 faded a little with each new generation, while the chemicals of N01 stayed just as present.
By the fifth generation of children, N02 had completely worn off. They had normal childhoods, growing like any other child would. But at puberty, instead of simply going through normal pubescent weirdness, they discovered their powers. And people were afraid. The teens became the center of talk around both the country and the world. Because no one alive knew what they were, or why they were like that, people feared them. Some newspapers claimed that they “craved blood.” Even the government, who knew what had happened and what they were, was afraid. They worried that this new breed might incite WWIII, something they did not want.
So they decided to take action. Because they knew that N02 was not a permanent fix for the problem, the government decided to simply kill them before they could reproduce. But instead of killing them outright, which would make people mad, the government sent the teens to a camp called Woodhedge, which was similar to the concentration camps of WWII. The teens were made to wear handcuffs infused with N02, which suppressed their powers just like the injection did. They were then made to work in dangerous conditions, for no pay.
The teens were living in a place full of darkness, and hatred. They had done nothing, yet they were treated like criminals. And no matter what anyone said, hope was what they craved...

Name: Eione Dinarla
Gender: Female
Age: 17
Appearance: Eione is a small girl, standing just over 5'2" with a slim, though not weak, build. Her thick, very dark brown hair runs to just above her shoulder, and though layered, the slight natural waviness to it is visable. Her eyes, unlike her hair, are of a lighter brown - given the right light, they appear a tawny orange. A simple hemp bracelet with a simple red glass bead covers and ugly scar on the inside of her left wrist, a scar that, while she does not flaunt, she does not bother to hide either.
Personality: Eione can be a very foreward and direct girl - she's not one to skirt around a subject. If you ask her opinion, by no means will she lie to you, even if the truth is something that you don't want to hear. Though, while being forward is in her nature, it is not something that she is proud of. When she goes to far and she is well aware, she will do her best to distance herself from the person she has offended as to not hurt them again. And, while she would like to say and make others think otherwise, she craves interaction with others and will become skittish and uneasy very fast around those she wants to befriend.
Bio: Having been abandoned by her parents at a young age, her grandparents who had taken her in reluctantly never much approving of her, Eione's first brush with the law - and her powers -  came when she started middle school. Having been bullied for her short size, she had told a kid to punch himself - and he did. With a broken nose he'd gone to the school saying that she'd attacked him, and from there the police were involved. In and out of foster homes she went, sent to a new one every time something went "wrong". When she turned 16, she made a break for it, living on the streets. For a time she was making it by, but a child can only survive on her own for so long... A year later, a woman called the police about a violent happening, and it was there that they found a man dead next to an unconsious Eione with a bleeding left wrist. She still refuses to tell what happened that night to any of the adults. It was then they sent her to Woodhedge, calling it a reform camp of sorts, sending her there with only her name and a scar that lies...
Power: Eione has the power of compulsion. She can manipulate a person's mind, be it convincing them that she did in fact turn in her homework on time or that they the person is being chased by snakes. The stronger the illusion she puts forth, though, the more it drains her, even to the point of keeping her unconsious for a few minutes or a few hours.
((Hope that's okay!))

Autumn walked in the line of teenagers, she stumbled a little and fell out of line landing on ehr shoulder she cried out and a gaurd came up to her and kicked her in the back mumbling "Shut up" as he picked her up and shooved her back in line. Her shoulder and back hurt but her powers missing hurt her even more but for some reason she felt she still had power, hope even but it was only breif and small.

Myra kept her head up, with no sign of emotion on her face. Several times she tried to move one of the guards into the air, she focused with every fiber of her being, but the power she'd had was gone. She sighed, attracting the attention of a guard. She snapped her eyes back to staring out at nothing.

((I pronounce Eione as a cross between Eon and E-own, if you can try to make sense of that xD ))
Eione didn't have to wonder whether or not these kids here felt what she did in that moment. To some degree, she knew, they did. And if they didn't yet, guilt or denial was keeping them from it. Grinding her foot into the ground, teeth grinding against eachother, the teen looked to a random kid just to the right of her, trying to make eye contact. "Look at me," she hissed through clenched teeth, trying to draw much attention to herself, "Look at me already, c'mon..." For a while longer she stared from the corner of her eye at the kid, though she knew she would get no response. Rank would not be broken for her, and certainly not by her. It was just... gone.

After getting back up Autumn stared back and locked eyes with another girl just for a second before a gaurd came and wacked her in the head with the butt of his gun. "No eye contact." he spit before picking her up and throwing her in line again she stared at the ground once again.

Zeva kicked and tried to punch the guards as they dragged her over to the other kids. They pushed roughly to the ground, at the feet of the others, kicking her in the stomach. "Stay still!" They yelled.

Myra looked at the struggling girl, wishing with all her might that her powers could come back. She focused on the guards as hard as she could, but it was no use, they were gone, and the guards weren't going anywhere.
