Imagine this. You wake up in complete and utter darkness. As you begin to sit up, your head bangs against a hard service. In a state of alarm, you bang on the walls, but to no avail. You're not escaping, you're in a coffin. Underground. You have been buried alive by one of your family members, for whatever reason, you're unsure.
Now you may be thinking, what happens from here? After continuous struggling and flailing, you manage to open a small compartment just big enough to fit your arm through. As you reach your arm out, a cold hand grabs yours. Suddenly, you realize that this means someone else is alive down here with you. But how do you go about escaping before its too later and you suffocate?
After escaping, the pair realized they have each developed a special power. This power could make or break them in their quest to escape the underground world.
In Buried Alive, two teens find each other underground, each of them having been buried alive. Together, they must escape from their coffins before it's too late. Once they do so, IF they do so, they must conquer the next daunting task; escaping the underground cavern.
In this cavern, spirits, skeletons, the undead, and so many more adventure in this cavern, some good and others evil. Together, these two teens must conquer the cavern, and return to the lives they led prior to their burial. They will do so by friendship, budding romance,and whatever else they can do to make it out alive.
Alright, so there will be a boy and a girl. I don't have a paticular preference on whether I am the boy or the girl. Let me know if you are interested! I'll post the skellie format if someone shows interest. :)
Oh this sounds cool! May I join?
Yay!! Sure that'd be great! Wasn't sure if someone would do this with me, thanks! Would you like to play the girl or boy? I'm comfortable with either :)
Mmmm... Can I be the girl?
Alright sounds good! Here's a rough idea for the skellie. You can add/remove whatever you feel necessary!
Age: (I was thinking ranging from 15-19?)
Who and Why he/she was buried alive:
I'll either have mine up later tonight or sometime tomorrow!
Okay! I should have mine up tomorrow!
Name: Jessie DeCartes
Appeance: Jessie is rather tall, standing around six feet in height. He has pale skin, and light freckles which dot his cheeks. His body build is rather muscular, but not overly so. Jessie has sleek brown hair and turquoise eyes, a mixture of ocean blue and emerald green. His facial features are accented, especially his cheek bones and jawline. Some may have seen him as scrawny.
Jessie is a fairly upbeat guy, but it’s mostly an act for his family. If he had his choice, he wouldn’t talk at all. His family is adamant that he suffers from depression, and has taken him to therapy many times to “fix him.” Aside from this baggage, he is kind, compassionate, and loyal. He is always honest, and extremely trustworthy. He doesn’t like to bring up his past or his problems. If it were up to him he’d keep all his frustration and emotions bottled up inside of him. Once in awhile, when he can’t take it anymore, he’ll explode on someone with all his anger, even if it had absolutely nothing to do with them. He had a few friends from the hockey team, but his best friend, Kip, died in a car accident. Overall, he is very sensitive and gets jealous easily.
Who and Why he was buried: Jessie was buried by his parents. He had been found in his room gushing with blood from cutting himself. He had been pronounced dead at the scene.
(( Don't bother with the power. It can be revealed as we go on :) ))
Name: Veronica (Ronnie) Rhodes
Appearence; Sienna brown skin with dark freckles. Her eyes are a bright hazel that stand out in her face. She is short but curvy with long billowing mahongany hair. Her features are soft and gentle.
Personality: Ronnie has always been quiet. She always kept to herself, reading or gazing out of windows. But behind that gentle exterior was a ball of anxeity and fear. SHe was ruled by her fears and was almost too scared to go to school. SHe shut herself away and cried herself to sleep. She was lonely with no friends and parents that didn't love her nearly as much as her other three more successful siblings. She attempted to kill herself many times, never successful.
Who and Why she was buried: She was buried by the state in an unmarked grave when no one came to claim or identify her body. She threw herself off a bridge and was found on the shore, pronounced dead.
(( Sounds awesome! I think this will be fun. Just so you know, I usually get on about once a day, paticularly during the week due to school work! Depending on the weekend schedule, I try to get on a couple times :)
Okie dokie, so let's start when they wake up underground in their coffins! ))
Jessie groggily opened his eyes and yawned. As he attempted to strech out his muscles, his shoes hit a wall, and his arms stopped short. He looked around him, but he was trapped in complete darkness. His heart began to thump, and his hands felt clammy. He felt cold, and as if there was a pressure pushing down on him. 'Relax man, relax. You're alright. Just calm down, this is just a prank. You can get out of here.' he thought to himself. His attempt to reassure himself failed, and he began to panic. As he traced the outline of the box, he immediately recognized the shape. He was in a coffin. He had been buried alive.
(Okay, sounds good!)
Ronnie whimpered and opened her eyes; pitch black. She whimpered and reached up, hitting wood. She blinked and whimpered. She kicked her legs and hit walls. She began to scream and cry. "Let me out! I'm not dead!"
Jessie thrashed about, but to no avail. As he punched one of the walls, it gave and he felt his hand push through cold dirt. He began hyperventilating, he could never get out, not buried under numerous feet of dirt and gravel. After shoving his hand through the small compartment that had opened, he scooched his body as close to it as he could. Maybe he could dig his way out? He manuevered his hand as far as he could through the dirt.
Ronnie kicked at the wall and whimppered when dirt began to seep in. She pushed her fingers through the crack in the wall, trying to get her arm through the cool soil.
As Jessie pushed his arm further, dirt began to pile up around the small opening and around his face. He coughed and lifted his head up as far as he could to avoid the dirt. Suddenly, his fingers felt something. It was cold, but nothing like the texture of the dirt. As he grasped what he had touched, he screamed. He had touched fingers. Human fingers.
Ronnie cried out and recoiled a bit, screaming. Fingers... She felt fingers... Dirt began to pile around her face and she coughed it up, trying to reach for the hand again.
Jessie admittedly was taken aback by the sudden grasp of a another human. So someone else had been buried alive too? Or maybe... No that hand wasn't cold enough to be dead. "Hey!" Jessie coughed out between mouthfuls of dirt. "Grab my hand!"
(( I was thinking that when they held hands, the magic underground tunnels below them would suck them out of the coffins, through the dirt and down into the tunnels?))
Ronnie grabbed his hand and whimpered, clinging for dear life.
Jessie tightened his grip around the hand. He closed his eyes for a moment, and he suddenly began to feel a sliding sensation. The bottom of the coffin dropped out, and he felt the sheer coldness of the underground upon his skin. Now he began to fall, and he let out a scream until he landed on the ground with a thud.
Ronnie cried and closed her eyes tight, waiting for the fall to kill her. She landed with a loud thud and then a crack. She whined and held her shoulder. "Owwww...."
Jessie released the hand and sat up. It was still dark, but a few flaming torches lighted the cavern. He was still dazed, and his vision was blurred. Suddenly he thought to look at the hand he had been holding, at least, the person it belonged to. He looked up and saw a girl next to him. "You alright?" he asked.
Ronnie cried softly and held her arm, nodding. She shivered and curled up, whimpering.
