Red String of Fate



IN CHARACTER EVENT

The Red String of Fate, also referred to as the Red String of Marriage, and other variants, is an East Asian belief originating from Chinese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red cord around the ankles of those that are destined to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. Often, in Japanese culture, it is thought to be tied around the little finger.

The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of place, time, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break.


The City is founded in the Demon Realm, and as such often experiences strange and mystical events that can only be described as supernatural. The “red string of fate” is such an event that has been recorded for centuries, most often occurring on Valentine's Day to couples all across the City. During this event, a supernatural force brings together humans and demons alike, binding their pinkies together with the mystical red string of fate. Said couples often wake up together in bed with someone they have — or haven't! — seen before, bound together by holy matrimony. For some it is a blessing: a way to find the person they are meant to spend the rest of their lives together with. For others it is a curse: after all, even Gods mess up once in a while, right? You better hope they don't mistakenly stick you with your arch nemesis! It's just an honest mistake... Right?


Event Mechanics

The premise behind this event is that you sign up your characters for the event, which in turn will be paired up by administrators. Said pairings will then be announced, and the roleplayers will make a thread together with their characters waking up married. It's then up to the roleplayers to decide how to proceed with the thread: will the characters accept the marriage, or wish for an annulment? Will they regain their memories of the night before, or will they remain clueless as to how they ended up in bed together? There is no reward for completing this event: it's simply for fun!

— You sign-up which characters you want to participate in the event; you can use all of your characters, or only a few. It's up to you!

— The staff will pair the characters up based on who we think would fit best together for an interesting thread, who would profit most with potential plots from the pairing, etc. Characters that are new and don't have a strong foothold on the site yet will be randomly paired up. You are also welcome to discuss a red string pairing with another player and approach Sekah in Discord DM asking for a specific pairing.

— The characters that are paired up should begin the thread with their characters waking up in bed together, with no memories of the night before and a red string connecting them via their pinkies: visible, but not solid. From there the thread can continue however you wish; they can even regain their memories if you wish!

— The pairs will wake up legally married to one another; that means that if your characters don't want to stay together, they will have to get an annulment! Otherwise they are stuck together, until death should they part... *Cackles*

— Both roleplayers can decide whether they want to make it an official thread, or simply have it take place in the Past & Memories boards (in which it's an unofficial thread).

Sign-ups begin February 1st, and end February 12th. Drawing for the couples is on February 13th; the pairings will be privately messaged to the roleplayers so it's kept a secret from everyone else who got who. The players will have the entire day of the 13th to decide how they want their thread to proceed. Threads can then be started on February 14th or February 15th, and have an unlimited time frame in which to be completed.
