This writing prompt will have two options for you to choose from. Although if you would like to do both, that’d be perfectly fine as well.
"A child’s fear is a world whose dark corners are quite unknown to grownup people; it has its sky and its abysses, a sky without stars, abysses into which no light can ever penetrate." — Julien Green
This prompt is reminiscent of Prompt #10’s but is more geared towards the characters’ childhoods.
At one point in a person’s childhood, they develop a fear of the inexplicable. Some fears can be very specific to one’s culture and upbringing while others can be more universal. They can range from a boogeyman under their bed, monsters in their dreams, or even the darkness in general. No matter how specific or general their fears are, there are certain fears that we form as children. Sometimes we get over them as we age and sometimes they stick with us.
Identify a fear that your characters had as a child and post something about it. You can write a self-para, make a graphic, or whatever else rustles your jimminies.
“The farther we’ve gotten from the magic and mystery of our past, the more we’ve come to need Halloween.” ― Paula Curan
This prompt is more centered around Halloween but is more general and open to interpretation. Write about your characters’ experiences or views of Halloween. Things to consider/help you jump start some ideas are:

Loooong time no see!
I know we’ve all been pretty busy one way or another. I’ve especially felt really busy lately so I apologize for not being able to update and keeping things moving as much as I should’ve been. A big, big thank you to those who have been getting on lately and trying to bring life back into the dash by making starters and doing replies and such. You guys are wonderful!
So to help get us all, or at least the ones who still have time to, back into the swing of things, I’ll put out a writing prompt later today. Like always, the prompt won’t be mandatory and just be a recommended type of thing.
As far activity goes, I won’t require anybody to write when they really don’t have time to but if you haven’t posted anything within the past two weeks, please check in with the main so I know that you’re still interested in being in the RPG. You will have until the 25th to check in before the next activity check. If you haven’t checked in by then, there is a chance your role will be reopened.
I hope everybody is doing well!

Character Name: Erena Bradley-Ayres
Parents: Darren Bradley & Moria Ayres
Ability: Enhanced Strength (Dormant)
Personality: Erena is as rebellious as any teenage girl can get, she’s an in your face type of person and bold when faced with any dangerous situation. She inherited her wits, humor and smart mouth from her father, the total package. Though she come off as a self-centered person she’s actually quite- compassionate towards others and has no problem standing up for anyone in need. When she proves to be too much for her parent’s to handle they can always count on her older brother Marcos to keep her in check. While their opposing personalities tend to clash resulting in them constantly arguing they still care and look out for one another.
Character Name: Zachary Claude Alessi
Parents: Nico and Sophia Alessi
Ability: Luck Bestowal
Personality: Zach’s the quieter of the Alessi children, perfectly content to stand in the background and observe things most of the time. His ability is strongly tied to his emotions, so he’s spent the last few years trying to learn how to control his own feelings, rather than leaving them to be shaped by the world around him. Mostly, this has resulted in an even less talkative boy, at times eerily calm; but, when he’s comfortable among people he knows and likes, he opens up easily. His family’s well familiar with his goofy smile, and his love for topics of history and science knows few bounds. Currently, he’s dealing with the recent loss of Uncle Cody and Aunt Lyla, mostly trying to help his parents cope and sticking closer to his sister than ever.
Character Name: Fiona Lyla Alessi
Parents: Nico and Sophia Alessi
Ability: Luck Absorption
Personality: Fiona takes after her dad in the sense that she is very level headed and rational when presented with conflict or new information in general. Despite that she is rather outspoken and is quick to assert herself in any situation that calls for it. For the most part, she is rather good at keeping her emotions in control. More so with her negative emotions than positive ones. Following in both her parents’ footsteps, she is fiercely protective of her brother, Zachary. Now that their family has lost two very important members, she has stepped up to look after Zach and try to keep the situation at home as stable as possible.
WELCOME THE NEW GENERATION
A reminder that this event is set to end next Sunday but might possibly end sooner if people are eager to return to the canon verse.
Since a good number of people expressed interest in playing out 2nd gen. character, IE. the children of our current characters, you may send a message to the main and request to play a 2nd gen. character. The rules of playing a 2nd gen. character are the same as the rules of playing a dropped character. You can use a sideblog or a new blog but it’ll be your own responsibility to follow everybody and make sure they’re following you back.
If you’re interested in playing a 2nd gen. character, please fill out the following and send to the main:
The scenario: The Rebellion just infiltrated the Nexus base to break out their friends from detainment and such. Some members on both sides died, but at the very last minute, the Rebels escaped.
Duration: This event will run all the way until the end of Sept 28th (PST).
Date: IC-wise, the month and day will be the same but the year will be 2035
Older Faceclaims: Are NOT mandatory. If you do have some picked out, feel free to use them. If you do not have any, don’t stress! It’s just a cherry on top.
Is this canon?: Although this is no longer the inevitable future, the events that take place in this timeline is still considered canon, especially to Nami.
Action: Fighting and other forms of actions are allowed, and is very encouraged, as long as players do not god mod (control other charactes) or power play (make their own character/s seem invincible).
!!! Playing past dropped characters: Due to popular request players may propose ONE character that they have dropped in the past to bring back to this event. If I give you the green light then it’s suggested that you make this character account as a sideblog since it is temporary. If you are more comfortable with a separate account then that’ll be allowed as well but it is your responsibility to follow EVERYONE. After the event ends, you will not be allowed to continue playing with this account for the current timeline.
Misc: If you want to post a headcanon thing explaining how your character plays into this timeline and what’s happened to them thus far, by all means go for it!

MAIN POINTS ABOUT THIS TIMELINE:
THE BEGINNING - Already Canon
