Sign up for 'Back to the Victorian Age'

Okay, this is my first 'sign up' novel so I'm really excited!! I'm putting 'The Curse of the Dina doll' on hold cause I'm having writer's block with that. Anyway, basically, the idea is that (no. of people who sign up, lets say5). Okay, there will be 5 girls/boys/both who are extremely rich and can afford everything and anything. Now, since they were so rich, they had butlers who functioned as butler-cum-bodyguard-cum-caretaker since all of them are ORPHANS (the butlers play a very important role so make sure you create yours well). If you have read or watched Black Butler, the anime, you will know what I am talking about. Now, all of them take care of some industry or business of some kind that has been passed down to them by their fathers (like Ciel in BB). All of them are extremely interested in the Victorian era, so much that they would risk anything to go to that era, even once( all of them live in the 21st century ). Okay, slowly, the main character meets them all and becomes friends(duh..) and they all share their discoveries regarding their favourite subject, the Victorian Age. They decide to travel back in the past (with their butlers), just out of curiosity and something dreadful happens there (not revealing that!).

Okay, rules are simple, they are:

· You must create ONE girl and ONE boy. It is compulsory. The reason is that I have figured that even if you hate romance(like me), no novel is a good novel without a teeny tiny bit of romance. I will be the one to decide a pair for your character by mixing the girls and boys created by others.

· Your character must be a girl or a boy, the character of the opposite gender that was created will be considered as 'side character' during sign up.

· Your butler must be male.

· You will have powers but not very powerful ones. They will be elemental and nothing else. The elements are as follows: Fire, water, ice, nature, light, healing ( I know, not an element, but I need someone to do healing), wind. There are 7 in all. I will choose one of them so that leaves you 6 to choose from. You may only choose ONE element. If I don't get 6 entries then I will decide which character/s I like best and notify them by a comment on their page as to which left over element they have received. There should be no repetitions so please check what element the others have entered before entering your own.

· Your Butler may or may not be a mythological creature, he will however, look human. NO DRAGONS PLEASE.

· Your butler MUST wear the clothes compulsory for a butler to wear.

· You may sign up for the antagonist side if you want but then you will not have a butler.

· You will need to make TWO outfits in all, for both your characters. One for the 21st century (for your main character ONLY) and one for the Victorian Era (you know, frilly frocks and gowns. This is for your main AND side character)

· You and your side character must be aged between 13-15

If you choose the 15 year old section, you must wear a gown in the Victorian age, not a frock.

· You must wear stockings if you are wearing a frock.

· Look up some Victorian age dresses before you make your choice of dress and hair.

· You will have a mark of contract on any part of your body (ex: an eye) marking your contract with your butler (like in BB).

· Please describe the shape of your mark very specifically.

· In the Victorian Era, you will be having a title, like duke, earl, viscount etc (yes, you can choose these titles even if you are female). PLEASE DO NOT CHOOSE QUEEN OR KING.

· Your side character will also have a position in society like you and have a butler. Unlike you, he/she will not have powers and have butlers who have powers.

· You MUST MUST MUST enjoy yourself!! I had been planning this for ages and so it should turn out great if you are willing to follow the rules and create your characters accordingly!
