    Sample Roleplay Post:

    Fall, 5th October 1887

    It had been eight years, and yet... It seem like time had never moved forward, as if from that night onward we had been cursed to hold that moment for eternity... My Mére says it is her fault for not listen my words and hoping for a miracle come true, although, I would not blame her for anticipating a wonder that could sweap that voice which whisper in our mind during our lifes with pieces of wisdom to prepare us for the worst, and despise their warnings, we ignore them and believe that the calm comes after the storm, yet, that moment of denial is our damnation, because we neglect to see what was arriving was not a sign of the eternal peace symbol and in fact the pause between a heavyrain.
