This is a the sprawling city of San Francisco, the city by the bay. Our city. A financial testament built around the import and export of goods and a naval hub that has a vast and rich history. A city foreshadowed by a prison that's 'not been used since forever' (a lie, to be sure) and a giant golden gate that's no more gold than it's supported solely on the hopes and dreams of your fellow man. This is the real world and we are its real people, a real and vast people that conjure and transform and hex.
We are the clarity on the other side of the dream fog.
We are real and this is the story of our endurance, every gritty terrible day of it.
We can't really be fussed over these long passed little things, but what came fifteen years ago was anything but little.
It presented itself before this, its presence small enough that it wasn’t even noticed, some nondescript second hand shop tucked away in Soma that people entered but never exited. Some years later this shop and its amusingly obvious name - [i]Purgatory[/i] - would give host to something none of us really expected. They’d come as great cracks in our capitol building, one along the marble floor, and out across the ceiling, something that could have easily been blamed on an earthquake... if we’d even had one when they arrived.
Heaven and Hell.
Their proximity to this city has always been joked about by those from the outside as they watched our pride marches or commented on the almost ethereal fog that never ceases to coat our city, but this was something tangible and very much real for us all. With the entrance of these heavily guarded portals would come the slow burning irritation of the fae, a long since settled species, and the top of the veritable food chain. No longer a truth.
Our days haven’t changed all that much, not really anyway. We still struggle to get by and falter in our ability to create meaningful relationships with one another, but now, with the thought of the end portals so close at hand, some of our deeper and darker selves walk a little more uneasily than they did before. The shadows in the alleyways now have to look over their own shoulders, and judge friend or foe a bit more carefully. Why they’re even here or why they came at all is beyond most of us and likely none of our business either way.

*When you’ve tied a character account to your parent account you’ll notice that the drop down on the nav bar now has that character’s name in it, selecting their name will switch your account to the character account without the need to sign in and out! You won’t even need to switch accounts to post from any character that’s tied together in this manner. When you’re posting there will be another drop down in the posting form (down below the actual text area) that says “Select sub-account author…”. Selecting the character the post is for will automatically post that post from the selected character! No need to switch accounts ever again. \o/
