Caught between two lives, the residents of Storybrooke, Maine search for a way back home or simply live out their days. But nothing is ever simple in Storybrooke. Once all people in a fairy tale land, due to The Evil Queen's curse, they were transported to the real world where there is no magic, into the town of Storybrooke. For a long time, they had no memories of their true selves. Old faces had new names, and a whole lifetime of memories in this new, non-magical world.

But then the savior came and the curse was broken, and The Evil Queen brought magic back to Storybrooke. They did not return to Fairytale land, but all their memories were restored. Now they live with two lives in their head.

Notes:
  • This is specifically focusing on Storybrooke after the curse is broken and everyone has their memories back. But if people want to rp during the curse or in fairy tale land, that's cool too!​
  • To start out, I'll open this to 1 character per player. This may open up more in the future.​
  • This is AU, so you can change your character in any way. Their true canon could be their Storybrooke persona or their Fairy Tale Land persona. That's up to you.
  • Every character should have two sets of memories in their head; Real World memories and Fairy Tale Land memories.
  • Storybrooke personas will be human with their Fairy Tale Land abilities. If your character was not human in Fairy Tale Land, they will remain human in Storybrooke. But they'll get to keep their abilities.

Pitch Black

Guest
I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS AU, MWAHAHAHA.

Mini-bio Signup:
Fairy Tale Name: Pitch Black
Quick Bio: Pitch was Fairy Tale Land's boogeyman, and enjoyed spreading fear and nightmares to the unsuspecting populace. However, over the centuries, his power waned; people stopped fearing him due to all the times he'd been defeated by his enemies, and Pitch scrabbled in vain to find a way to strike fear into the people's hearts again. He even took down the Sandman, Bringer of Good Dreams, and became the only being who spread dreams to the populace. And yet, the people continued to maintain hope in their hearts, fighting against the despair caused by the Evil Queen's reign. While such an event ought to have bolstered Pitch's efforts, it seemed that all it did was spite him.

He had no desire to make bargains or ally himself with others of his ilk, such as Rumpelstiltskin, but when he caught a glimpse of a snow spirit's powers, he knew he had to have Jack Frost join him. While he may have had motives other than spreading fear in mind as well, his main focus was to get Jack to join his side, so they could drown the land in a new era of cold and dark, where only fear would exist -- fear of him, and no one else. But his plans were thwarted when the curse was laid upon the land, and they were all taken to Storybrooke.

Storybrooke Name: Kozmotis Pitchiner
Quick Bio: A self-assertive and aloof connoisseur of horror fiction (including many of its sub-genres), Kozmotis works at Storybrooke's library and has little patience for children, or even adults for that matter, considering himself superior to all you uncultured swines. He takes a perverse pleasure in one-upping others no matter the subject, and has earned himself quite the reputation with the way he tells children stories that leave them unable to sleep at night just so they can leave him alone. However, while he prefers solitude to annoying brats, he dislikes not having people to talk with. Even riding in his spare time brings him little joy compared to the loneliness he longs to get rid of.

For all the boy's niggling and annoying tendencies, he took a liking to Jack, who was one of the few people he put up with. He even came to see him in a fatherly sort of way, but when Kozmotis became reacquainted with his memories of being Pitch Black, he was overcome with the desire to accomplish what he set out to do in Fairy Tale Land and get Jack to join his side, and take revenge on his foes and everyone who thwarted his efforts while he was at it. Though, paradoxically, his Storybrooke persona feels bouts of compassion he has never experience before, and they are sometimes quite a hindrance to his plans.

...Oops this turned out really long-winded and miiiight change as I flesh this idea out a bit more.

Jack Frost

Guest
Fairy Tale Name: Jack Frost
Quick Bio: Jack Frost is an outcast winter spirit. He was meant to be a Prince of Winter, but he was born with broken magic and the Winter Court of spirits cast him out into the world where they believed he would whither and die without their support, for his magic was unstable. Fluctuating between no magic at all, or dangerously uncontrollable power, Jack distanced himself from others in a self-proposed exile. He wanted to be part of the world, but he feared what his broken magic could do.

And then he discovered the staff. It was a relic from the old days of the Winter Court, something he found when exploring darker and colder parts of the world. With it he found some remnant of control and suddenly there was joy in the winter that had only ever brought him frustration and pain. The Winter Court wanted him back, but Jack snubbed them and decided to go his own way, with a lighter heart, determined to let nobody control him. He kept an eye on the children of the world especially, bringing them lighter and happier winters when the Winter Court would try and bury the land in snow.

Storybrooke Name: Jackson Wade
Quick Bio: Jack is that on again, off again runaway. With a seemingly permanent bad relationship with his parents, he's always out of the house, doing his own thing. With a reputation as a mischievous miscreant, he doesn't get on too well with a lot of the adults in town. But really, Jack has just long since learned that he should make a mess to draw attention to himself. He's a lonely kid at heart, and has a tendency to invade other people's space when he's avoiding going home. He might crash on your couch a few days, eat all your cereal, until you finally get sick of him and kick him out.

Now with his memories back of Jack Frost, he's realized that his parents are the King and Queen of the Winter Court and that relationship is more sour than it was before. He's decided to go for the permanent runaway thing and isn't too thrilled about going back to high school either.

Niklaus Mikaelson

Guest
Fairy Tale Name: Niklaus Mikaelson
Quick Bio: The son of a noble family, Klaus was born as a result of his mother's infidelity, giving him werewolf blood. He and his siblings were only human in a world where magic and monsters ran wild, and after the death of one of his siblings, Klaus' mother, a powerful witch, used magic to make her children immortal. The magic used was inexact, however, and turned them into vampires.

His mother then used her magic to place a curse on Klaus, keeping his werewolf blood dormant. For hundreds of years he searched for a way to break his curse... And finally succeeded, only to fall under the Evil Queen's curse.

Storybrooke Name: Jay Annison
Quick Bio: A very kind, good natured man, Jay was a history graduate student. He worked part time at the library, and occasionally volunteered with whatever youth organizations the small town had. He was incredibly friendly, personable, and a bit goofy and mischievous... Until the curse broke, and his memories, as well as his true nature were restored.

Elizabeth Comstock

Guest
Mini-bio Signup:
Fairy Tale Name: Elizabeth Sliverheart.
Quick Bio: The daughter of the last king, and the next in line to the throne, and one of the leaders against the evil queen. Elizabeth was full of pose, grace and kindness for the people of the kingdom, Pure of heart as they come, her father showered her with love. She was the apple of his eye and was very protective of her, trying to protect her from the evils of the worlds, by banning her from visiting the world outside the palace, much to Elizabeth’s disappointment as she’s naturally curious and adventurous girl. Over the years the king was forced to scold her for several attempts to escape and wander into the less desirable establishments of his kingdom where her lack of world experience and naivety could be taken advantage of Elizabeth passed the hours in the palace, reading book after book, education herself on quite a number of subjects. When her father died she was due to become the rightful ruler until the evil queen’s curse began to effect her.

Storybrooke Name: Anna Dewitt
Quick Bio: Humble handmaiden to the queen, utterly loyal to her and willing to fullfill any need she might have, still quite innocent in the ways of the world, you can often find her engrossed in a book in the local bookstore where she works part time when she’s not waiting on the queen hand and foot. She is as shy and as meek as a rabbit. Most likely to blush if someone were to strike up a conversation. Seemingly devoid of feeling any ill will toward anyone, she is horrified at the thought of anyone opposing the queen and despises all forms of fighting. When the curse lifted she was horrified she ever was a servant she vows to destroy the queen in the name of her father

Merlin Ambrosius

Guest
Fairy Tale Name: Merlin Ambrosius
Quick Bio: Merlin lives in Camelot, a kingdom where the use of magic is forbidden and a crime punishable by death. A powerful warlock and Dragonlord, Merlin hides himself behind the guise of a simple and foolish servant and he plays the role incredibly well.

Beyond Camelot, there is word of a sorcerer called Emrys — a sorcerer said to be the most powerful of his kind, for his magic comes entirely from within himself. He is said to aid in bringing about peace in the lands. Merlin is this very sorcerer, another piece of information he holds close and does not whisper to others.

Storybrooke Name: Liam Muirín
Quick Bio: A frazzled freelance photographer who has an annoying habit of taking photos of everything and everything he sees, Liam is known for his clumsiness and his quirkiness. Though intelligent, surprisingly so to most, he's forgetful, uncouth, and it's honestly a miracle that he's able to pull through and keep his job as the mayor's personal assistant.

Upon the breaking of the curse, Liam's memories of his life in Fairy Tale Land came back to him and with them, his magic in full force. However, he keeps his skills to himself just as he did in Camelot whether out of habit or out of fear. After all, with everybody's memories restored, the name Emrys is still out there.

Fairy Tale Name: Billyboy
Quick Bio: Originally from a poor family living in the Enchanted Forest, Billyboy tried to be good and scrape along at all sorts of menial tasks...that is, until the only son of a noble bullied him in front of a crowd of other adolescents, even going so far as to insult his mother and deliver more insults about his absent father. In turn, that led him to develop a hatred of wealthier people in general, and instead of working for them as his mother once wished, he's turned to a life of robbing the men as well as assaulting any women traveling alongside them. After four years of immoral and criminal behavior, he was on his way to a long stay in the royal Dungeons when the curse hit.

Storybrooke Name: Will Morton
Quick Bio: Within Storybrooke, however, Will seems to be a bit closer to the average teen: even if he is the town orphan and a regular at the local soup kitchen, he otherwise appears to have cleaned up his act by agreeing to do odd jobs for people, provided that they're willing to pay him in return either with money or with something he calls 'trades'. This can range anywhere from a free music CD to digging up information on people he's taken a personal dislike to, depending on which way his mood swings once his side of the bargain is done. For a time, he found that he enjoyed having people trust him and be more willing to help out with his rough situation...at least until the curse was broken. Now that his old memories have returned, it's not yet clear whether or not he'll go back to his old habits, or possibly stay on the less violent road to redemption.

Smaug

Guest
Mini-bio Signup:
Fairy Tale Name: Smaug the Terrible
Quick Bio: A dragon of incredible wealth and power who resides in a long-abandoned, gold filled temple. Spending his days, growing, snarling and stealing sheep and wealth, the old dragon came out into the Fairy Tale world only when it seemed like something might be gained. Generally, Smaug's unlikable nature and frequent attacks on innocents caused him to be rejected, hated, and sometimes wished dead by the general Fairy Tale populous.

Storybrooke Name: Adonis Fafnir
Quick Bio:
Flamboyant and a over-the-top, this jewelry shop owner sells and buys gold, jewels, and other statement pieces that the inhabitants of Storybrooke have collected over the years. Adonis takes pride in helping others and listening when someone needs an ear to speak to. He's dedicated his life to making sure everyone (and thing) looks fabulous.

With his memories and powers returned, he finds himself torn. Where he had once been cruel, he is finding the idea of being good appealing, though he fears that someone will recognize who he is. For his own safety (and his sake of his remaining friendships and life in Storybrooke), he has made the rather unfounded claim of being the Frog Prince.

Misty Day

Guest
Fairy Tale Name: Misty Day
Quick Bio:
Misty Day was born to a humble farming family, in a small village where everyone was expected to pull their weight. One of the villages regularly questioned by The Evil Queen, they were spared because they never actually harbored Snow White. However, despite not hindering, they were heavily taxed for not being helpful, and over the next few years, crops and general health declined, with plague a constant worry, and famines hitting every couple of years.

Misty's parents were old, and her mother was already sickly. She died a few years after the taxes started, and Misty's abilities first manifested at this time. She revived her mother, and from that point on, she was considered a gift of her village, able to revive the dead with minimal effort. She drew The Evil Queen's attention, and was captured, locked in a cell for months for trivializing the queen's punishment. This was her position when the curse hit.

Storybrooke Name: Amelia Mortis
Quick Bio:
Amelia is the local pathologist and mortician for Storybrooke, able to discern what caused someone to die and clean them up for a funeral. Amelia wishes she could do something more for families than make their loved ones look st peace when they put them in the ground, but she can't.

Amelia hates her work, and is desperate to become a doctor. However, she always falls just short of passing her medical exams, and no other jobs seem to want her, either because of her eccentricity, odd brand of humor, or lack of qualifications. With the curse broken, her powers and memories have returned to her, but she is reluctant to display them, lest she meet the same fate as she did back in the Enchanted Forest.

Wan

Guest
Fairy Tale Name: Wan
Quick Bio: Wan hails from an isolated, far-flung province of the Empire where he was renowned as great hero who rose from humble origins to do the impossible. After learning to co-exist with the often volatile Nature Spirits that surrounded his home, Wan went on to master all four types of elemental magic—something no one had ever thought possible from an ordinary human. When a Dark Spirit threatened his land with chaos and destruction, Wan was able to befriend his opposite—the Spirit of Light—and with her help he fought to save his people. However, the Dark Spirit was only defeated when Wan joined his soul to that of the Light Spirit, bonding them for eternity. It was then that people first began to call him the Avatar. He became the bridge between the worlds of Spirits and Humans, and he made it his life’s mission to bring peace and balance to his land.

Storybrooke Name: Jin Liang
Quick Bio: Jin is a socially awkward and largely mistrusted vagrant who, by all accounts, simply wandered into town one day and never had the decency to leave. He takes odd jobs in exchange for some food and bit of money, but there are occasions—not as infrequent as he’d like—when he’s forced to resort to theft. Despite this, however, those who bother to get to know him will find that Jin is a largely good-natured soul. He has no set home and no more possessions than he can comfortably carry on his person, but he isn’t particularly bothered by that. He’s happy with what little he has, and he’s entirely content to enjoy life as he finds it. It never occurred to him question why he opted to settle in Storybrooke for so long or why no one ran him out of town…at least not until the Curse was broken.

With his memories and powers restored he now finds himself conflicted. Wan’s mission weighs heavily on Jin’s shoulders. On one hand he feels it’s his sworn duty to help people and promote peace. On the other…well, that’s a lot of responsibility to place on someone who’d honestly like nothing more than to continue their relatively carefree existence. He’s having quite a bit of trouble reconciling the two lives in his head.

Toothiana

Guest
((I wanted to post in this ages ago but totally forgot xD))

Mini-bio Signup:
Fairy Tale Name: Toothiana
Quick Bio: Toothiana was Fairy Tale Land's Tooth Fairy, gatherer of baby teeth and their memories. Her parents were Rashmi--a Sister of Flight, who protected precious memories and Haroom--a servant of one of the Sultans of Agrabah. Toothiana was born as a human but gained her own wings when she lost her last baby tooth. However, the villagers became superstitious and wanted to hunt her down. They hired a hunter, the former Sultan--now called the Monkey King, who murdered her parents and the rest of her kind. She spared him and let the jungle she lived in decide his fate. Tooth then decided to continue her mother's legacy by gathering baby teeth and protecting their memories.

During the years, she created little fairies assisting in her job--the most prominent one being Baby Tooth. She joined forces with the Sandman, the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus to fight against Pitch Black who wanted to drown the world in fear; after the first battle they dubbed themselves as Guardians. Though they succeeded in foiling his plans many times, people were in despair with the reign of the Evil Queen. They tried their best to keep the citizens and children full of hope, the curse fell upon the land and they were all taken to Storybrooke.

Storybrooke Name: Anna Dent
Quick Bio: Anna is a bubbly dentist with colorful dyed hair and a passion for teeth. She takes care of her little sister, Annie, otherwise known as Baby Tooth, since the death of their parents. She is a friendly person and assists in Storybrooke school with the children, often pointing out how important dental hygiene is.

Now that the curse has been broken, Tooth tries to give precious memories back to the citizens--to give them hope that they would return to their own world and reunite with loved ones. However, it's a difficult task and she feels conflicted as Baby likes the life they live now and wants to remain in this world.

Alphonse Elric

Guest
Since I dropped Erza.

Fairy Tale Name: Alphonse Elric
Quick Bio: Younger brother of Edward Elric and a boy from a small village called Resembool on the outskirts of the Enchanted Forest. His father is a traveling alchemist and had left him and his brother with their mother, Trisha Elric, at the village. Trisha wasn't someone who had gone against the Evil Queen, though Al had often reprimanded Ed for doing so. When the boys were ten and eleven, their mother had died from some unknown disease and left the boys alone to fend for themselves. One of the older ladies of the village, Pinako, and grandmother of their best friend Winry, had offered to let them stay, but the boys had a plan to bring their mother back.

Al had known their abilities couldn't bring her back, and Ed had suggested going to Rumpelstiltskin about a spell to bring her back. Rumple had given them the knowledge to bring her back, but as he told everyone, there was a price for it. The boys were still in grieving and didn't want to think about the price to pay to bring her back. They used the spell to bring Trisha back, but the price was heavy. Al was whisked away in a swirl of magic. His soul and his body was gone. It had been a heavy price indeed. Ed had gone back to Rumpelstiltskin to complain an to bring Al back from the other side. Rumpelstiltskin had said there was another price and Ed was willing to take that risk. This time it had taken his arm and leg, though Ed was able to use his alchemy to craft a metal arm and metal leg for himself to use. Al, though was now a soul in a knight's suit of armor. It was an odd new and lanky look for him, but it was the best he could do considering.

Storybrooke Name: Alfons Heiderich
Quick Bio: Alfons came over with his brother and father when their mother died when they were both small. Their father left the two of them in Storybrooke only coming back every so often to make sure they were taken care of. He hasn't come back in quite some time and the two have been left to fend for themselves. Al works at a local repair shop, though he's recently shown an interest in rocket science, though in the meantime he's shown most of his aptitude for repairs. He likes to tinker with some of the scraps around the shop and has created a few things of his own like a few robots and a few remote control cars. He enjoys the act of creating things on his own, though it's the repairs that truly keep the money coming in.

He and his brother run the shop, but he's usually the one that does the repairs as his brother is the more rash one. Al's Storybrooke self isn't much different than his Amestris self aside from the fact that his odd golden eyes have turned blue giving him more a fair look rather than the Xerxian look from his original world.

Thought it'd be easiest to use his real world counterpart's name lol
