The sleepy town awakes
Est. 11122012

The modest, curiously empty town of Bindlebrim Hallows is tucked between a rugged coastline and a lush forest in Washington. It is a place like many other small Pacific Northwestern towns. It is the kind of place where hot chocolate is required to combat against the harsh winters and your neighbors know a little more than they should. Where the smell of burning wood dances with the wind in a never-ending waltz and moss wraps itself around the fir trees. Where romance can blossom on the darkest of days and where magic seems to be an everyday occurrence.

It's a place woven from the deepest point of your imagination, spun from your very dreams. However, things are about to change in Bindlebrim Hallows; something dark has decided to reside here, a creature so evil its very presence threatens the peaceful town's future, causing every citizen to wake up to a living nightmare. →

† History ;

The Parisian Birch family has one of the longest existing lineages of nomadic witches in the world and the whole family tree is known for its fortune telling related gifts. The youngest spur comes in the eccentric form of Morgana Birch, a girl with relatively normal life (as she describes it), as normal as one witch can be. Morgana’s mother, Lamia, was the wisest knowledgeable woman of the Birch tribe, also known as the clan’s Shuv’hani. For her unique talents of bending time, she was targeted by witch hunters which ultimately managed to soak their hands in the High Priestess’s blood but not before Lamia assured that her children would remain safe. It is a tale as old as time, their bloodline being hunted until extinct, so Lamia needed to be sure that her talents would be passed onto her children. She was getting old, but the Talismanic craft she had perfected would never age. From the youngest age, Morgana was taught to make talismans, differentiate herbs and make exquisite potions which would later guide her through life. Devoted to the traditional, ancestral magic, Morgana was raised as far from the ‘common’ and ‘human’ as possible and witchcraft was all she’s ever known. Or she thought she’s known.

“There must be a catch, a plot twist”, you might think, and you’d be completely right. Morgana was really born into a family of secret agents working for the government, by a careerist mother who couldn’t afford bringing child into the world of lies and espionage. And if that wasn’t enough of a reason, Selena (Morgana’s birth mother) found out that her husband was a magic one only after the conception and with the discovery arrived the downfall of their marriage as well; she wasn’t sure whether she wanted the child of such unique ability and Selena quickly found the solution. Or better said, a solution found her when a woman - which she could’ve sworn followed her during her entire pregnancy – approached her and told her everything about Birch lineage. How she had many children, currently eleven all homed together, and none was hers for she was infertile. She explained how her husband had the gift of recognizing aura’s of witches and how her child could become one of respected Shuv’hani with proper education; Lamia also said she was aware of her impending soon-to-come death, so once she was gone, Selena’s secret would be buried with her. Morgana would never know of her real family, would live in blissful ignorance, and that was what bought Selena’s consent. Birch’s were all dark haired and short and the child would grow up to look just like the rest of the children, so she would have no doubts too. Selena didn’t want to be a mother and someone else could offer Morgana what she was born for; as cold and detached as she was, she could never deny her child that much.

Very Freudian in her lifestyle, Morgana gives a perfect confirmation to the witch stereotype built by just as blissfully ignorant humans. She is a lover of wicked costumes, hats, black cats, candles, ethereal fragrances and all the other bookish witchcraft jazz. Her powers make her a great dream teller for they manifest through her dreams and nightmares and she believes that the interpretation of dreams is the royal road to knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind. Because she has very little control over her powers, she has those dreams very often and it’s usually enough for her to get a glance at a person to have a them-related dream that night. Most of the time, the dreams aren’t even precognitive as much as they’re subliminal messages about the people she meets. Morgana is the kind of girl who’s crazy about anything she’s doing or feeling; she’s honest with herself when she says she doesn’t know what she wants and it’s okay to change your mind as often as you wish, because it’s your life, you’re meant to lead it the way you see it to be fit. Her craziness isn’t always easy to deal with, because sometimes she makes friends in her dreams - as in she gets attached to the idea of people her precognition form and there’s the huge problem of people she dreams of not knowing that she befriended them in dreams. A child of surrealism, she often has a problem with differentiating reality from dreams. The very second she stepped in Bindlebrim, she felt like she guide a life of wicked sort there and be given the proper further education she so eagerly seeks. Surely, she would always miss her siblings and wonder why the father didn’t send them here as well, and yes, she will miss the mother even though she has passed away when she was barely a child, but in a funny way, she feels like she belongs here more. There’s something drawing her to this place, something almost as strong as the ancestral magic she feels flowing through her veins, and she intends to find out what that is.

There’s something exceptionally human about Beckett that has captured the young witch’s attention. Morgana admires the discipline he displays and in a way she recognizes herself mentally in it, which is what draws her in. He’s like the mirrored opposite of herself, the ying to her yang, and it would all sound beautifully romantic if the two ever shared words other but “Hi” and “Hello”. Many Covenants come to her like open books, her dreams being much of an acquaintance in getting to know them, but Beckett is the impenetrable wall. The fact that he is so stoic and kind is something that both something that Morgana is irked by, but also something that she admires. Still, the boy doesn’t seem to notice her. And Morgana is far too scared to go up to him and actually flirt like a lot of the other girls in her sorority. Yes, Beckett would be a someone difficult to break through. But boy, does Beckett loves a good challenge. 

Her face claim is Crystal Reed and she is currently open.

† History ;

Be an angel, humans would say to one another, when they want or are in need of something. Just be an angel and hand that to me or you be an angel while I’m gone, okay? They meant it in a good way; they meant be nice and kind and gentle, be a darling, a doll. They couldn’t be more wrong. But then, that was generally true of humanity. Many have done little to no study on the subject of angels, because mythological creatures were actually cultural memories of their own inner demons. But in reality angels, in their true form, could bring down the fury of heaven upon you or destroy your soul with a glance. Angels could be for evil as well as for good, and whether you chose to fear them or to worship them it was best to do so from afar. Angels are so beautiful and so terrible that the first thing they have to say when they meet a mortal is, Be not afraid. Angels don’t have to acknowledge you, after all. Angels only have to exist, in all their splendor, all their seductive purity. And if you fall, you have only yourself to blame.

Dominated by the moon and reigned by the Divines above, the young angel Muriel is the exception to such myths. A quiet soul, she was made with the hopes of a better future for humanity, to guide lost souls into her Father’s realm. Fairly young compared to her equals, Muriel exists only to please her maker and aside for her perfect purity, she brings great promise to Heaven and to those who have watched her blossom as God’s loyal servant. But the human realm has left the naive angel extremely worried for the past two hundred years. From afar she has watched tainted souls fall into the hands of evil without the knowledge of a better future. And while she has requested numerous times to be sent below and help purify those who have sinned against His word. But everytime she was shot down, told to wait for the “right moment”. Luckily her Garrison, led by a fellow angel known as Seraphiel, will be traveling to the human realm to help their Father’s mission in a matter of days. Immensely pleased, Muriel knows this will be her shot to prove herself to those who have watched her grow. 

Deeply scared of rejection, she often wonders if she’ll be of any use to His cause. And with a corrupted town such as Bindlebrim Hallows, she knows this will be the biggest challenge she will face in her whole existence. She sees the town as a curse, conquered by darkness, and inevitably bound to Hell. Part of the angel is a little irritated at the mere existence of Bindlebrim and is sadden by the fact that the Lord remained to let it stir the souls of the Earth, but the other part, although unrecognized to her yet, has waited eagerly to the upcoming events of their trip. A glimmer of hope grows inside of her, but is tainted, thoughts of conquering the town now plaguing her once vague mind. But the thoughts aren’t of malice or mischief, but come from the kindest corner of her being. The stubborn desire to make the town better and holier for those residing inside of it, however, may just be what is tainting the angel’s pure heart. Regardless, she has found a desirable host, one who was on the brink of death, and is ready to start the mission she has waited since the moment she was created by Him.

† Connections;

A fellow angel and a mentor of sorts, Muriel and Seraphiel have traveled to Earth together. And while their mission remain the same, Muriel fears Seraphiel is seeking for something other than pleasing their Lord. Once an angel who held a high rank inside Heaven, Seraphiel was stripped of his sense of self with reasons unknown to Muriel and to those who follow his command. While she’s here to cleanse the souls of Bindlebrim, she’s keeping a close eye on Seraphiel as well. 

Her face claim is Angel Coulby and she is currently open.
there's a woman in the open males list, btw.

Due to admin and member losses, not to mention a few of our current members are own hiatuses, prompts haven’t been done as we’d have liked. However, given the circumstances, it’s understandable. So until everything settles back down, we’ll be extending the time for this prompt to be completed.

Is Garrett Rivers open for audition? It says he is open in the tags
