Within a matter of seconds, the whole world, and everyone in it, just stopped.
Everyone... accept for us.
That man who was walking his dog this morning? Frozen in time. The snowflakes sprinkling the cold December air? Suspended in the air and time. But you? Somehow, your still moving. Somehow, your still breathing. It all started with an earthquake... It must just be a coinsidence... right? Or maybe it's not. After seeing the others stopped, you notice a strange marking on your arm. Your still moving for a reason. It's your job now to find that reason, and save time. Perhaps you know why you were not stopped. Perhaps you do not. The fate of the world, and everyone else in it, now depends on you. How will you, just a group of teens, find a way to save the world? You better figure it out fast... the next earthquake is approaching fast...

Sky Fraser (TheNinthOne):
Name:[/b] Skye Fraser
Appearance:[/b] Skye has short, wavy black hair and golden hazel-green eyes. They dress for comfort and personal expression, ignoring popular fashion culture on a regular basis. Skye stands at a fairly average height, around 5'5, and presents androgynously.
Personality:[/b] Skye is a very intelligent, calm, and collected individual, and has a daring confidence that few possess. Over their lifetime, they have become more open, however have still maintained some of their reservation from others.
Bio/Backstory:[/b] During the first stage of Skye's life, from the ages of nonexistence to nine, childhood was normal. The three years that followed, however, were different. Between the ages of ten and twelve, Skye's life fell apart. They became distant from their family, and confused about who they were. They didn't fit in with their friends, no matter how similar to their friends they seemed to be. They were generally misunderstood. Finally, Skye realised that internally, they weren't a girl. After exploring their identity for several months, they came out to their family as agender. Although this was supposed to have been the great mending of their relationship with their parents, Skye remained fairly distant for several months, as a period of doubt overtook them. They no longer knew who they were once more, and eventually found that they could only wait for a moment of clarity. Finally, that moment of clarity came, like a miracle, and Skye was able to truly embrace their non-binary identity. From there, Skye's bond with their parents strengthened exponentially, as they now understood themself, and others understood them more.
Seven years later, at the age of nineteen, Skye encountered the time freeze, as did the rest of the world. However, Skye's continued motion with a lack of abilities was a mistake. It may have been that magic attempted to invade them, however was exterminated or forced out by their body. Possibly, Skye was never meant to remain moving in the first place, and was somehow missed or unaffected by the time stop. Either way, Skye remained powerless through the time freeze, yet still, somehow, moving. At the time of the freeze, Skye was hiking into the remote wilderness with a group of friends.

Markings/Marking Meanings (there can be only three of each power set):
Four connected Triangles: One of the triangles is red, one blue, one grey, and the last green. This marking represents the four elements. The ones bearing this marking are the elemental masters. Some of the downsides to this element are: Your control over your powers depends on your emotions, much like the paw marking. Your powers may hurt someone you didn't mean to before your able to control your powers effectively. (one elemental master power sets left)
A small paw print: This paw print is the marking of the animal speach. The one bearing this marking can speak to animals and tame nearly any animal. Some of the downsides to this marking are: The animals you tame react to your emotions, so if your mad or annoyed, they may hurt someone you never ment to hurt. Also, if you become more evil then good, the animals may turn on you. (three animal speach power sets left)
A lightning Bolt: This symbol represents speed: whoever bears this marking will be able to run quick as lightning, while still being able to walk or run at a normal pace. Some of the downsides to this marking: Whoever bears this marking, before they have total control of their abilities, man start to randomly run faster then they had wanted to. You may also have random moments where you become very hiper, but these issues will fade as control of your new power is gained. (three lightning speed power sets left)

Whats happening now:
You have found that the world is frozen, and that there is a strange marking on your arm. What happened? When did this marking appear? You may have so many questions, but so few answers. To make things even more confusing, after finding that time has stopped, you somehow were knoked out. Around you is a line of houses, most in a state of decay, but nothing is moving. Others are waking up around you. Who are they, and can they be trusted? Your head hurts, your in a strange place, and time is stopped. Unknown to you, there is an evil in this world. An evil that you were ment to stop. Will you be able to make the clock tick again? Or will you become part of the silence?
Canyen took cover as the earthquake happened, before noticing that there isn't anything falling. Anything at all. He cautiously got out from his cover, only to find that there's nothing moving. He was the only thing that was moving. He checked his watch, finding that it didn't work, then checked his phone. Everything that didn't involve wifi or service worked, except the clock. He sat down and considered the evidence as snow hangs inches from his face, just.... hanging there
H-Huh? Where am I? Ow, my head hurts.. Did I fall or something?
Ashley slowly stood up and looked around. Wait, why is nothing moving? I swear there was just an earth quake.. She then noticed the snowflakes hanging in mid-air around her and the two other people, the only other people, who seemed to be moving. "Hello?" she said, "Why is nothing moving? Is anyone hurt? There was just an earthquake a few seconds ago.." Ashley walked over near where the people were standing.
Canyen saw where other people were actually moving, similar to him, and ignored them. People couldn't really be trusted. He looked at that tattoo he somehow got and wondered what it did. He had deduced that time had somehow stopped, from an earthquake no less, and wondered if it was global or local, as well as what exactly caused it. Most likely some sort of experiment, possibly combat, that was screwed up by the earthquake. He looked around again at all the motionless figures. Reeeeeeaaaaallly screwed up
Skye was silent as they surveyed their surroundings, declining to acknowledge the others until after they had determined all they could about where they were and what had happened. Skye slowly turned away from the others, taking in the sight before them, before snapping their gaze quickly back to Canyen and Ashley as they became aware of something they had seen quite recently. Skye's gaze immediately landed on the markings on the others' arms. However, when they looked down at their own arm, they saw no foreign marking of any sort.
They don't seem to be up for talking right now.. Ashley then turned her attention to the strange tattoo on her arm. Where did this come from? I don't remember getting this.. She once again tried to talk to the others, as the silence was becoming unbearable. "Who are you? Do you know anything about whats going on right now?" Why am I even asking? There probably as clueless as I am. "Do you know what this weird tattoo thing is?" She waited for any response.
"Skye..." Skye offered their name in a distant, vague tone, staring at their surroundings in confusion. They failed to even attempt to provide an immediate answer for any of Ashley's other questions, likely only adding more to her list with their vagueness.
And possibly about my gender... Skye added to their thoughts with slight dread.
