You and several other people/dragons/cats/pretty much whatever being you want (can be OP!) have been captured and put into a maze full of puzzles, traps, and sometimes even death. Can you find your way out of the maze on the post number AFW chooses... or will you be trapped inside the maze forever?
RP Specific Rules (all other LPW rules still apply):
-Characters are allowed to be OP, but within reason (ask AFW!)
-Characters are NOT allowed to smash the maze or disable all traps
-Characters don't have to be accepted to join, but they should still follow the character rules and have to be announced before you start
Okay, MS has joined as MS and LA (twins, apparently) but I have to put all of his posts here myself because he's still blocked for some reason... Do you know what's up with that? Actually, tell me on the categories thread so that this doesn't get filled up with randomness.
Right!!! Right now, everyone is in a different room, all of them with different sections leading deeper into the maze. Everyone is also asleep at the moment (except LA and MS) because you were all knocked out in order to be brought into the maze.))
Artemisstar woke up, silvery sparks flashing before his eyes. "Ahhhh! The sparklies are out to get me!!!" he yelled, before realizing that it was actually his own, slightly graying (even though he's a younger cat), fur. "Oops..." he said sheepishly, glancing around at his surroundings. He seemed to be alone on a small platform in a room where the floor was covered with deadly looking spikes. Artemisstar shivered, thinking, Is this the first test? How am I going to get out of here?
Lets eat Grandma. Let's eat Grandma. What saves lives?))
Moonblistar casually opened one eye. What happened to the shipping compound? Oh right, she chided herself. I'm in the maze. She stretched, her luxurious black fur radiating heat. The silver patches of fur bordering her eyes gleamed maliciously as she stared through a panel of glass. On the otherside, her arch nemesis/ occasional ally, Artemisstar was studying a spiked floor in a mirror lined room. He stared at her and she made a gruesome face. He didn't react. Oh, this wall must be a mirror on one side, a window on the other! her thoughts exclaimed.
Artemisstar noticed a shiny looking wall. "OOh! Shiny wall!" he exclaimed, before realizing that it was probably a mirror, especially since he could see himself in it. "Oh." he said, disappointed. He looked closely at the mirror. Was it.... a window? With his arch nemesis/occasional ally Moonblistar? Nah, I must be imagining things... he thought. He turned to look at one of the passageways that led out of the spike-covered room. His eyes started to hurt after a couple minutes of looking, but eventually he found... a small panel, just above the passageway. It had a spike on it, but the spike was much smaller and much less dangerous-looking. However, it was way too far away for him to jump, and it wasn't like any fairies were in the room with him.
Moonblistar decided that waiting around was pointless, and rammed her face at the glass. It didnt crack. She tried again. And again. And again. And it cracked. She raced into the spiky room and shot fire at a particualarily annoying spike. It didn't melt.
Artemisstar gasped in surprise when the window shattered, trying to step away from the shards of glass and failing when he realized that a step backwards would mean impalement. "Moonblistar! What are you doing here? Don't step on the spikes!!!"
Moonblistar sighed. "Fine. I'll use one of my Pokemon ships." With this, she opened a red and white pokeball that contained. . . .Dash (Dawn x Ash). "Pipichu, I choose you!" A yellow Piplup appeared. "Pipichu, thunder shock!"
WHY DAWN x ASH?? AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO SHIPS ASHTY???? And isn't it Bunery who has the crush on Pikachu?))
The thunder shock hit Artemisstar. Unable to stop himself, he teetered on the edge of the platform... and fell right on top of a spike. He closed his eyes, waiting for the pain... and then realized that the spike was crushed flat. "Huh??" he said, opening his eyes. "Oh, hey, Moon! It's safe!" He experimentally put a paw on another spike... and ended up with a large gash across his pad. Wincing, he said, "Nevermind! Try using thundershock again!"
Now THAT ship is hilarious.... XD))
But since when was Dash confirmed???))
In his excitement, he had completely forgotten about the third degree burns and frazzled body parts that he was not proud to claim his own. But now he felt them, and fainted embarrassingly just as Chanseydude had come out.
Artemisstar actually embraced the sparklies, but was luckily saved by the fairy who had accidentally flew in front of the bolt of light. "Hey!!!" Artemisstar yelled to the sparkly-maker cat. "Why'd you do that??? I wanted those sparklies, but not for my fairy to get the sparklies!!!"
THAT..... IS NOT CANON. AT ALL. OR EVEN PLAUSIBLE.))
Artemisstar saw the skrewt and squealed in horror, running over to Informouscharm. "Help!" he cried, the various fairies hidden in his fur whirling around him in panic. "I think the world is exploding, and we haven't even solved the first puzzle yet!"
Drarry slapped Moonblistar in the face and lifted the stupefy. Seething, she returned him and the skrewt to the ball. "Zutara, hand out copies of Fire and Ice. Starspeaker, bore everyone with predictions on molecular gastronomy."
Moonblistar dipped her head in respect. "Now, you starcrossed yandere, you wouldn't happen to have any love lifes I could recruit? I already have Artemischarm and Darkcharm, but I want the complete set."(hahahaha, serious ship collector))
Moonblistar stared. "What part of Informousstar's ships do you not understand? However, I would enjoy a edition to my collection." Drawing a copy of Sears Roebay inventory, Moonblistar skimmed through the shipping deals. "Hmm. . .Shadowspiller is back on sale. . .oh, I already have a Turtledancer (to appease Moony). . .aha! Darkshipper! Only costs an week of enduring Artemisstar's comments, and get this: FREE SHIPPING!"
"Eh. . .I stole their love lives, but you can have them back." Moonblistar reached into the Duat (where I currently am storing all my ships, not enough Pokeballs!) and drew out several terrified faeries. " I think they are wilting though."
"Oh no!!!" Artemisstar cried, nuzzling one of them, and jumping back when it coughed in his face. "My fairies!! Sure, they are annoying, and they don't have good love lives, but my little sparkly puffballs..."
Artemisstar shook his head, dazed, then stared at amazement at the wall, which seemed to be turning transparent and gooey. Or was it already that way...? He experimentally stuck his paw into the wall, and was greeted with a hard substance that still seemed flexible.
"Well..." Artemisstar said uncertainly. "I'm pretty sure that we need to squish that spike on that panel on the wall up there." He pointed with his muzzle to a small, square panel close to the ceiling with a long spike on it. "However, we can't jump up there, and there's nothing to grab onto to get there."
Moonblishippers shippingpad appeared. "In that case. . .I'll have to summon them from storage, it might take a minute. When I recruited them from Rome in about 700, they asked to stay in the duat because they were too marvvy for a mere mortal to gaze upon." She scrolled through lists of names. "Aha, There they are!" Seconds later a duo of horses, one ripped the other with wings, appeared in a poof of blue energy.
Artemisstar looked up at the sound of sparklies. "Sparklies? Do you have any? I really want sparklies... Oooh!" he exclaimed, looking down the hallway. "I think I see a sparkle!" Then, he bounded down the hallway, trying to find the source of the light.
Moonstar suddenly appeared in a maze in a burst of Light. Where the Dark Forest am I? Moonstar thought, then a different, deeper voice sounded in his head, same yet not. You mean we. Moonstar stiffened for a moment, then relented. Yes, I mean we.
Artemisstar arrived at the light sooner than Moonblistar did, and sat down, panting, before the cat who was in the middle of the light. "Sparkles?" he said hopefully as the light started to die down a bit.
"Ooh. . .that's pretty. One second as I add you to my collection. . ." she drew a copy of Sears roebay. "Aha! Moonshine (XD, seriously?) only a month of torture by Artemisstar, and downloads in five minutes. Cool!"
You can't handle it. I'll take it from here. Suddenly Moonstar was shrouded in darkness, and a new cat appeared, with the same markings as Moonstar, but, black and blue with red eyes. He stretched, "Much better," he purred.
Artemisstar was gazing distractedly at the ceiling. "Hey, guys, I know Voidstar over here has some very sparkly universes, but don't you think the ceiling is getting lower?" he said dreamily, waving his tail back and forth. "And I don't accept those shiny coins, Magic -- wait, shiny???? Oooh...." Artemisstar takes the coins, and puts them in his pelt, but makes no promises on who will win.
Artemisstar's eyes almost popped out of his head, but he contained his excitement -- but not enough to stop himself from hopping up, running around, and almost knocking everyone over. When he had finally settled down, he said excitedly, "Oooooooh! But, the ceiling is coming closer..."

Wait....sparklies are coming in from somewhere!".magic death said excitedly
Artemisstar looked around, eyes wide, hoping for just a glimpse of the sparkles Magic Death had mentioned. Then, he saw one -- a small, blue sparkle coming from a tiny hole in the wall. "Ooh! Maybe there's a fairy inside!" he said, running over to the hole and sticking his paw inside.
Magic saw the sparkle, and pushed Artemis away in a attempt to obtain it. He poked his fingers in through the hole, touching the sparklie. He was instantly showered in lights, and found himself turned into a fox.
Oh yeah! The ceiling!!! Ahhhhh! How could I forget about the ceiling???))
The ceiling was still coming down, and was gaining momentum. Suddenly remembering that it was about to crush them, Artemisstar looked, frightened, at the ceiling, trying to think. Maybe the fairies could help? Oh, but that fox... Wait, what about that little hole? Does it have anything else inside? Looking inside swiftly, he sighed. No, it does not. Aloud, he said, "Maybe there's some sort of switch or panel that can stop it?"
KAHHHHHH! Moooooooo! Magic Crow Party time! No, wait, this is a RP! ARGH! Oonbl!!! First my puns, now my catchphrases??? You too, IC!!! You started this madness! XD Whyyyy.... that's it! :D))
Suddenly, a huge crow from who knows where came and pecked at Informousstar and Moonblistar, effectively crushing them. Kahing, it flew away, deeper into the maze, leaving two crushed, but amazingly still alive cats groaning and injured.
Artemisstar (who is a he, although his person form is a she, because that TOTALLY makes sense XD), came running back after being attacked by the amazing, incredible ship of Aryagon. Panting, he pawsed (hahahahahaa XD) in front of Cometpaw. Tilting his head to one side, he said, "Hello, sparkle cat! You are now the third black cat (fourth? Fifth? SIXTH??? WHY ARE ALL THE CATS BLACK XD) in our party, because you have a sparkle face and have a friendship with a crow. Hahahahaaaa," he laughed, nudging Moonblistar dizzily, "Friendship...."
Tapping her shippad frantically, Moonblistar summoned him a tankard of butterpumpkinbeerjuice. "Oh, Cometstar. Live in the moment! Even if we are about to be crushed by several tons of rock, we should ENJOY IT."
Artemisstar laughed a little maniacally, and turned to Voidstar. "Escape the cake!!!! Yaaaaayyy... you know, that pretty elf thing made sparkles, and those sparkles were sooooo prettty.... but yes, escape, we must, the maze of sparkles and foxes and crows... Thataway!" he suddenly shouted, running into the wall. The ceiling was getting closer now, becoming clearly visible in the little light the maze had.
Artemisstar jumped up, and crashed into Informousstar, still being a little woozy. "Ahhhh!!! The crows??? My fairies are friends with the crows, they can help you!!!" still on the ground, he whispered to his pelt, and a tiny fairy jumped out of it and landed on Cometpaw's head, chittering.
Informousstar walked up to the fairy and poked it. "Informous!" he yelled, and immediately got all the information about the fairy he could have wanted. "I should have done this before." He murmured, and proceeded to use Informous on all of the party.
Artemisstar shot up as if tazered, then stood still while he voiced aloud all of his life secrets. "yeah, and then I totally just kidnapped that one cat... but she had sparklies! But then she totally just kicked my butt..."
Moonblistar then admitted to all her petty thefts. "Well, I got Flying Mintachu Bunny from the clearance section at Kmart. . . I abducted Hermionald at a Quidditch game against Salem Witchs High. . .I'm pretty sure Firestorm jumped into my backpack. . . for some reason, every one got really mad about that. Hmmm. . .I wonder why. . ."
Like Artemisstar, Moonblistar continued ranting: " And when I was hallucinating I vomitted rainbows. Seventy eight times! It's my personal record. And there was that time when I ate too many cupcakes. . . it's not MY fault they were cheap, blame Costco. Anyway, Artemisstar was indigo for days. . ."
Moonblistar blushed. "Thank you. They were 467% sugar and the rest was compromised of dismembered unicorns and nyah cat poptarts. Reminds me of that time when Artystar here, went bankrupt and abducted all my abducted fairyies. . ."
Moonblistar chortled along side him. "Ayeeeeeeeeee. . . . .my shippad was running out of storage anyway. . .I can only fit in about 16 billion ships y'know and about 15.9999 billion of those were full. . .hmm. I should get a storage upgrade. . .I might have to abduct Artemischarm again for StarClan to lend me some shipping tokens. We should schedule a time for that Artystar. Next thursday I have an appointment with Jamesse though . ."
