Alright, so this is the roleplaying thread for the above-mentioned story. If you are here for the first time and would like to join, it is required that you go to the RP Planning Forum thread first, either to sign up for a canon (the list of filled/unfilled roles is on that thread) or to submit an OC. All are welcome in this roleplay - however, more details are on that thread, and I would prefer that this particular one not be cluttered with people asking to join and that they would instead do so on the Planning thread.

Basic Rules for the actual RP:

I'm sure I don't need to review this, as these are mostly the same as the site. Please keep it PG-13, which means:

    No excessively vulgar or offensive language or topics. I'm sure you know the drill and can filter for yourself what is and is not considered "offensive" to an English speaker. Just do use common sense, and don't use those four letter words.

    No graphic gore or sexual content. So no lemons or extreme bloodshed. You can hint around to romance/fighting, but please don't have characters getting horizontal and such.

Also, as my own personal additions:

    Please use grammar and spelling to the best of your ability. This isn't school - everyone makes mistakes, and some people are better at spelling than others. It should simply be good enough so that other roleplayers are able to at least understand you.

    Please indicate when you're OOC. Pretty self-explanatory. I would like for this RP to flow as smoothly as possible. Side chatter/socialization is alright, but should be marked and kept to a minimum.

I believe that covers everything. Have fun, enjoy the story, and we can start whenever you guys are ready. 8-)

EDIT: Since this RP thread was my idea, I suppose I should start it in order to get us all introduced to the universe. So here we go.

------------------------


A long time ago, bordering a vast desert and widely scoping jungles beneath the rocky foothills of Kilimajaro, whose snowmelt helped to feed the long, brawling rivers and whose presence inspired awe in all who cared to gazed upon it, there was a rock, of a peculiar sort. It jutted out from the landscape, long and tall and completely alone... and upon this rock lay a kingdom. It existed in an idyllic sort of microcosm, a small and mostly isolated universe whose inhabitants lived in a balance with their neighbors, where food was plentiful and life was usually peaceful.

That is not to say that times were always like this, but on the whole the community was one of cooperation and friendship, where mutual respect held the whole of their spinning world together. The kingdom was in a time of prosperity, and its rulers - the strong, mighty lions whose ancestors had migrated to the Rock a long time prior - were a compassionate and generous bunch whose hearts were as warm as the summer sun.

Ahadi was one such example.

His time to rule had just begun, and so his reign was still in its infant, fledgling stages. Like the dawn of a new day, there were infinite possibilities, many new hopes and dreams and desires to be planned and fulfilled alongside his newly-wedded mate and queen - Uru. Yes, it was a new day, and there was much to see and do in this world. There would be responsibilities ahead, and trials of all sorts. This much he knew, even without the acute knowledge of the dark events the future had in store for him or the role he was fated to play in the great Circle. But if there was one thing he'd learned from his predecessor, it was to always treasure the small, good moments in life, too.

It was one of those lovely, lazy, laconic mornings. Could he go on a walk, perhaps, with his darling mate? Maybe have a drink at the waterhole with his friends? Talk to Zuzu about her routine morning flight?

There was much to decide, and much to fill in the now-uncertain future. But the new king tackled it with optimism - why not?

------------------------


OOC: Not all posts have to be this length, though mine are probably going to be at least this long, if not longer. The main question I want to ask at this point is if Mohatu is still going to be alive in this story. What do you guys think? :P

The silence surrounding Pride Rock in the early morning was slowly ended by a rather loud yawn emanating from a lone figure, emerging slowly from the still dark den into the yellowish glow of the scattered rays of the sun. The lone lion walked over to the edge of the behemoth of a bolder and stood there, looking over the lands as they glowed in the morning light.

Ahadi looked over the lands, still trying to wrap his mind over the fact that he was king. It wasn't too long ago that he stood here at the tip of Pride Rock to be accepted as the next king. He mostly got over that feeling, but he still had some trouble adjusting to the fact that he was in charge of all the rules and regulations that kept the lands at peace. In fact, for that matter, where was that bird, Zuzu, who normally showed up around this time to inform him that some animal somewhere wanted to complain about some mundane problem?

Looking around for his Majordomo, Ahadi didn't find her anywhere. Looking out at the Pride Lands again, he turned and walked slowly back into the den, figuring that if he had nothing to worry about right now, then he might as well enjoy this time. Entering the still dark den, he walked over to the lone figure still lying in the middle of the podium far back in the den. "Uru? Uru, you awake?"

[ooc] If we're going to get something going without Mohatu, then we should leave him out in order to avoid having to shoehorn him in afterwards. I will try to make my posts longer, which will be easier when the plot starts going: I'm not good with purple pros.[/ooc]

OOC: RedKite: I assumed that Mufasa and Taka haven't been born yet in this scene. We could say that Sarafina is a newborn at this point... maybe you could play her mother for this scene and introduce her that way? DGFone: Yeah, that's what I figured. I'll go cross Mohatu off the sign-ups now.

(Can I make up her mother? Also, is the taka + sarafina = Nala thing going to happen? If so, Sarafina and Zira aren't alive yet.)

OOC: Yeah, she can just be 'Sarafina's mom' with Sarafina when she's a newborn. And we'll have to see what pairings we want to do later. I believe at this point we are waiting on Kopalover/Uru, right?

A young lionesses with a dark orange pelt lay in the back of a dark den only merely lit by the sun outside. Her red eyes fluttered at the sound of her mates voice. She lifted her head and let out a small sigh, "Ahadi!" Her soft voice gleefully exclaimed. "Good Morning, my love." She purred, smiling at her mate as his body was silhouetted by the light outside.

"I'm awake, I'm awake." Uru giggled, then realized there were no lions in the den with them. "I slept in again, didn't I?" She laughed as she stood. Her small paws went out in front of her, and she leaned into a stretch. Only seconds after did she prance over to Ahadi, and licked his cheek then proceeded to nuzzle his huge black mane.

With Ahadi and Uru as the new King and Queen, they had to produce an heir. They had tried, and tried for months on end; even before they were named. So far, no luck. She prayed that this month would be the lucky one, as she did every other month as-well. Her dreams of being a mother were slowly being crushed by reality. Even her friends were pregnant or new mothers.
Though she didn't complain, when the time is right then her cubs will come.


OOC: Sorry for it being so short >.<

Ahadi chuckled. "No, you didn't sleep in, Uru. I just woke up early. I was waiting for Zuzu to bring me some news about any trouble in the lands, but she didn't show up..." he grinned, "meaning that if I am not mistaken, the two of us have some time to spend together." He made a show of motioning around the den. "It will seem a shame to me if we spent it here in this dark and gloomy place."

The king turned at walked back out into the orange glow of the morning light, both to give Uru time to get up on her own without urging her on, as well as to demonstrate that he was not going to spend his free time in the den where the pride sleeps, and would rather wait for her to come out here than to stay in the dark hole.

As he waited for Uru to come out, Ahadi sat down at the edge of Pride Rock and scanned the lands again. Not having been born here, he was still amazed at the sight this monolith offered of the lands surrounding it. As the previous king Mohatu explained, the Pride Lands expanded to the horizon as seen from this point. Compared to the kingdom that Ahadi came from, the Pride Lands were several times larger; no doubt due to the combination of the centerpiece known as Pride Rock, and the complicated ruling system that he inherited and was now in charge of.

Uru grinned at the notion Ahadi made of them spending time. "It'll be the first time we actually have a few hours together without being interrupted!" She giggled lightly, speaking only of the truth. Both Ahadi and herself have been too busy to spend more than a few moments of peace together. She followed him eagerly out of the den with soft paws, then sat herself down beside him.

"Beautiful, isn't it?" Gesturing towards the Pridelands with a smile. The sunlight bounced off the morning dew and make the Pridelands shine like a diamond. The trees of many colours danced in the light breeze, and their leaves flew through the wind like butterflies. Ever since she was a cub, her daily routine included basking in the Pridelands beauty during the early hours of the morning.

Though already having a day planned out with Ahadi, Uru knew she had to visit Rafiki in the near future. To find out if this month will be the same as the last, cubs or no cubs. She knew Ahadi would most likely be stolen away for kingly duties at some point, and that would be the perfect time to do so.

"Ahadi dear," Uru paused, turning her head towards Ahadi. "Would you care to stroll the Kingdom with me?" She asked smiling, already knowing the obvious answer. Her red eyes gazed up at his electric green with delight, a smile quickly ran across her face.

"Would I care to stroll with you around the lands?" Ahadi asked, looking annoyed. "Yes. Yes I would care. Because there is nothing more that I want to do other than to walk around the lands that I have to walk around every day anyways, only this time with someone jabbering next to me and slowing me down. What do you think?" He quickly flashed a smile. "Of course I wouldn't mind Uru. I'll be glad to walk with you."

Just to make sure that he didn't hurt his wife's feelings with his odd joke, he quickly gave her a nuzzle before walking down Pride Rock next to her. "You know, I honestly don't remember the last time we had the opportunity to do something like this together. First it was us learning how to become the rulers, and then it was us becoming said rulers and having to run the place... It's been a long time since we got to actually reap the rewards of what we sowed."

Ahadi looked over at Uru and saw that she was busy thinking about something. "Uru... is something on your mind?"
