It's been in the works for quite a while now, and Manipulated Daydreams is finally reopening! The plot has been reverted to its original state; it won't progress until we have enough members to start Keeper auditions! Welcome to MDD everyone! ♥
Been hard at work on MDD, getting everything together for the opening in two days! The lovely Chris is now co-admin!

lexin is a pureblooded vampire who was cast out of his clan because he didn't possess their cherished element. due to several scars on his throat he has lost all vocal capabilities though is able to carry on a raspy whisper for a short period of time. he works as a metal smith with the aid of his element and frequently travels from town to town to sell his wares. despite being a vampire, lex feeds as little as possible. he doesn't take pride in being a vampire and tries to live as normally and simply as he can. though he carries himself passively, he is capable of taking care of himself and won't hesitate to react violently should the need ever arise. his silence makes it hard for him to bond with people, and harder for him to actually enjoy people, but deep down he craves human contact just as much as any other person.
friends - lex is going to have friends, but they're going to have to be loyal to him for several different reasons. he travels a lot, can't carry a conversation, and starves his vampire blood to extent of losing self-control more than would be considered healthy by anyone's standards. however, should someone be understanding and considerate to him, he really is quite personable.
name, species, element [app]
enemies - there are going to be a lot of people that lex considers annoyances for the simple reason that they don't get him. these are, however, different than enemies. most characters that would consider lex a threat either have violent history with him, loath him for various reasons, or are afraid of him. it's hard for me to see lex having very many people gunning for his throat, but i'm open the suggestions.
name, species, element [app]
lover - it's important to note that lex is bisexual and favors neither male nor female over the other when considering for a serious relationship. however, a lover isn't necessarily a person that he searches for because he doesn't really believe that anyone would want to get involved with him and, even if someone did, they wouldn't really understand what they were getting themselves into. that being said, it is very possible and i am very open to it.
Temperance gets it. She's a demon and is occasionally forced to feed off of humans, her attacks almost identical to that of a vampire. She doesn't like murdering innocents, so she usually attacks criminals or other filth, so she's like Lex in a lot of ways. Including using the element of fire. Similarities end there, though. She's a loud, aggressive and ferocious young maiden who is not at all patient. I want to see how these two might work out. I'm hoping a bit for some sort of romance, doesn't have to be serious.
i'm open to romancing them :3 honestly, i think that the fact that she has the potential to understand him is the biggest deal maker. i don't know exactly how it would play out though. but i'm pretty open to threading them and seeing where it takes them.
I really would like a plot with Lex, but I am drawing a blank as to how I could get a plot going with either of my characters. I think Ana might encounter him quicker than Oberon would. Ana is a protector of travelers and the forest. Perhaps the two meet while Lex is feeding, and then things could get interesting. I don't think they'd be enemies, but I figure she would hesitate to befriend him immediately. Have any other thoughts?
yes, oh my god, yes. i love how that sounds sooooo much. since lex would be quite violent, as he is feeding, he wouldn't react well at first either. lex hates it when people see him feeding - more for the fact that they saw him at his weakest than anything else. i like the idea of lex and ana eventually being able to create some sort of rocky friendship maybe? or mutual understanding of sorts?
It might be weird but I think they could be friends? Lexin is quiet which would be really good considering Cassius doesn't like anyone who talks too much. They both have the same element as well. Aaaand Lexin is a metal smith right? I could see Cassius admire his work since he likes to forge things himself.
