When the world turns it's back on you, compliment it's curves and become friends!
Hello! I'm Shard. Shard the Gentleman. Welcome to my profile! Thanks for visiting it. Sometimes I see random members in my "Recent" sidebar thing and I'm surprised anyone visited my profile at all! Thank you. I'm so FLATTERED!
Before my current name, I was known by... Shard the Metal, Admiral Antoine, and Tycen. Much like I did, I changed my name each time I felt my personality grow a bit, which is why Shard the Gentleman will be my final Username. Tycen was young and ignorant; a thing of the past! For those of you that care, my real name is Caleb. Some people call me Prince Cale or just Cale. Some friends call me Cal, Cable, Cabbie, Celebi, and others. I have no problem if you call me any of my names, so feel free to call me anything, really! Just don't call me Shirley. Shard, Metal, Antoine, Tycen, Gentleman, Admiral, The. Do what you want. (or call me by my name, that's okay too.)
On KH13, I'm here for whatever reason you want me to be. I like to RP and chat, so just hit me up! I love you all. All of you, I love.
I love to sing, act, and hang out with my friends. In fact, I spend most of my time trying to hang out with people. When I'm not, I'm usually at home playing video games or something similar. I like reading, writing, singing, acting, video games, and talking! I'm not good at anything YET, so please don't expect me to post my greatest works! What I do share is when I actually feel slightly proud of what I did, so thank you for noticing! My favorite color is Pink!
IN CENTRAL FLORIDA, NOT BORN BUT RAISED, IN HERNANDO WAS WHERE I SPENT MOST OF MY DAYS. CHILLING OUT, MAXING, RELAXING ALL COOL, PLAYING SOME KINGDOM HEARTS OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL.
I personally believe that Video Games are something that should be encouraged. Mostly because it involves interaction and thinking, not blank staring and listening. Of course, there's nothing wrong with watching Television, I just think Video Games are the ultimate art form.
The people here are kind of great. Like, really great. Great Roleplayers, good friends, nice chatters. Glad to have become part of this community. (Speaking of, do you ever edit your profile and just think to yourself, "Who's actually going to bother to read all this stuff?" Well, the answer is... Well, you're reading this, aren't you?) If you're a new member, you're gonna like it here.
I love to RP! I have so much fun doing it with all the lovely people on this site!
Now, if you're interested, here are some of my favorite things!
Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens...
I have been a loyal Kingdom Hearts fan since the beginning. Or something like that. Maybe a year late, but its close to the beginning, before CoM and KH2 announcements. Kingdom Hearts is on my Top 5 Tops list. My favorite game is Birth by Sleep, followed by KH, KH2, Re:Coded, DDD, and then Days.
Sonic the Hedgehog will always be a part of my life some how. It was the very first video game I've ever played. I was literally born into the series. My brother started playing it before I was born, and eventually, I started myself! I don't regret it in any way. Sonic started my video game love, and it will always be there too.
The Legend of Zelda. What more can you say than "It's legendary?" It's one of those games that I love. ESPECIALLY Majora's Mask. That one is my favorite of all titles. Twilight Princess, Wind Waker, Ocarina of Time... those are some of my favorite titles. I haven't played any of the Wii titles, though.
Pokémon is also great. I mean, this was another game series I was born into, and started playing because of my brother. Started with Red, then Crystal, and then jumped ALLLL the way to Y. Tried to play the ones in between, but my parents wouldn't let me. Pokémon is the Devil, you know. (So I just watched the show to keep me entertained.)
FINAL FANTASY. I am also in love with this series! In fact... My favorite Video Game series of all time... that title belongs to Final Fantasy. My favorite Final Fantasy title is FFIX (9.) XIII is also a good one. The rest are good too.
I like a lot of other games too. So yeah.
I am in love with the Sonic the Hedgehog comics. I am heavy, heavy fan, and I encourage everyone to read them. They are as good as any other comic out there, believe it or not. I have an obsession with this series. In fact, my username, Shard the Metal, is based off a character in the series by the same name! As was my previous username.
The Kingdom Keepers series is a great series. I haven't read any in a while, but I loved them. I am a Disney fanatic. Two books have been released since I last read the series, so I hope to catch up soon. I've also heard that a sub-series is releasing and I'm keen to read those as well.
Shadow Children series is what got me started on reading, I believe! It was the first 7 book series I actually finished. (Although to be honest, they are quite short.) I actually got in trouble in school because I was reading faster than the rest of the class, and I took the tests before the rest of them did.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure! Love it. Up to date!
I also loved most Mandatory readings in school, like The Anthem, The Giver, and a few others. (I really didn't like The Three Musketeer's though)
Steven Universe! Love it! I think it's my number one Fandom at this point. So cute, but so good! I like how it can touch on serious topics and also show diversity and equalism to kids without looking preachy.
Once Upon a Time. Once again, Disney Fanatic I love this series. I like being able to see all of my favorite Disney characters in one place, and in a new light, too!
I am also a fan of Doctor Who. *laughs* In fact, there was a period of time on these threads that I had convinced everyone that I was a Dalek. Allons-y!
Love Disney films. Love them to death. I will love you to death if you love Disney films to death.
I like most musical movies and productions. RENT, Phantom of the Opera, several others.
I've recently started to love Marvel films. I'm caught up on the MCU, except Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. When I find time, I'll catch on. Hopefully I'll be able to get Netflix at some point in time. Love the series... wish I read the comics, but I can't. Don't know where to start.
Sherlock, My darling, my love, return to me!
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure!Love it!
I'm Shard, I love to RP, I love people, and I hope we can become good friends!
Yeah kinda. I have to think about things before I do them and acknowledge that my brain is sending these signals to my body to make my body do these things. My hands look weird to me. That's me? Those are my hands?
A few years ago, there stood a proud city called Mobotropolis- the capital of all of Mobius. Leading it was King Acorn- a resilient yet compassionate leader who dedicated his life to preserving the peace and advancing society with his lead scientists, Doctor Robotnik and Sir Chuck. However, Doctor Robotnik quickly turned on his king, and used a machine called the Roboticizer- initially invented to keep citizens healthy- to turn most of the city's inhabitants into robotic slaves.
In the midst of the chaos, the King disappeared, leaving no hint of where he may have gone, or what may have happened to him. Princess Sally- sole heir of the Kingdom of Acorn- lead a handful of citizens in escape to the Great Forest to create a haven called Knothole. Many families were lost- some killed, and others turned slave.
In addition to all this, people started remembering things that never happened, and people who no one knew began arriving from somewhere unknown with little to no memory of their past, and only knowledge of Knothole and the city of Mobotropolis -now called Robotropolis- as if they had been living there the entire time.
Years had passed, and Robotnik seized control of all of Mobius, spare a few safe havens across the continents. Now older, Princess Sally rallies the bravest citizens of Knothole to form the Freedom Fighters- souls dedicated to taking back their home, and restoring peace to the world.
Join the fight, and restore peace to the world of Mobius alongside your fellow Freedom Fighters!
Although based on the cartoon known as SatAM and the Archie comic series, you can join in with little to no knowledge on either of those, since this starts at what would be the beginning of both series! Here's a handful of knowledge for you, just in case!
Mobotropolis was the capital of Mobius, known for it's scientific advancements made under the then good Doctor Robotnik and Sir Chuck- including research centering around Power Rings. It prospered as a city well managed and stood as a beacon to the world as a sign of hope to the future.
After the conversion to Robotropolis, the city became known as a town of bleakness and metal- populated soley by robotic slaves and SWATbots. Housing the Tyrant Doctor Robotnik and his nephew Snively, Robotropolis is the stronghold of all things Robotnik.
SWATbots and Robot Mobians
SWATbots are robots designed by Robotnik to scout, defend, attack, and kidnap. While these are the more basic of Robotnik's inventions, they can still pose a threat to most of Mobius' citizenry.
Robot Mobians are Mobians who have been roboticized, made into slaves and enemies of Mobius- some have sentience while others become mindless. Sentient Robot Mobians are sinister, and are usually in control of bases in random zones across the planet, while retaining no memory of their previous lives, and focus soley on what would further the Eggman Empire.
Power Rings and Chaos Emeralds
Power Rings are ring-shaped energy filled items of unknown power. During Mobotropolis' Golden Age, they were used as an energy source, lasting days at a time powering cities. They emerge from the ground, and are hard to find. However there are some Power Ring deposits across the world, where they are more common to appear at least once a day- such as the Lake of Rings near Knothole, where they are fished out. Some Mobians can use Power Rings to enhance their own abilities.
Chaos Emeralds are the most rare form of energy- with only seven in existence. Initially kept on Angel Island with the Master Emerald, they have since been lost. They say when you gather all seven of them, a miracle happens!
You can sign up as ANY Sonic Character! I wrote this in a way where newer characters can exist without creating too many issues, thus the "new people showing up thinking they've always lived in Mobotropolis" bit.
I wanted to start this in honor of Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog being cancelled. While it hasn't been officially announced, the writers and artists of the comic are writing resumes for new jobs, along with individual comics being cancelled one by one.

Hey guys! I've been wanting to do a bit of a KH13 discussion thread recently, so here I am, wanting to talk about nostalgia. What makes you nostalgic, what are you nostalgic about that may not be as good as you remember, really anything. So, here's some music to set the mood, and lets get some discussion going!
There's a lot I'm nostalgic about. Random things, really. I have a lot of random memories brought back anytime I listen to this song- and not even about this game. It's random things like, how I used to watch Dexters Lab in my dad's room while playing with MS Paint on the computer, or playing Sonic 3k. How I would come home from school and drink some juice, and go play ball with my late pet dog Ani (short for Animal.) We have this huge ditch behind our house that there wasn't a fence blocking, so one day when we threw the ball, it went a bit too far and we had to go find it, but we found this boomerang instead. We tried so hard, but we were never able to figure out how to get it to work!
Related to this theme, though. This is what got me initially interested in the Sonic comics- because this song would play in the Extra's menu, where they had a bunch of the old Sonic Comic covers, and the first three comics were readable. I remember looking at the covers of the comics and wondering what happened to Sonic, why was he in space? Why is Sally crying? Is that Sonic's gravestone? I spent hours on this screen reading and looking at all the details of these Sonic comics, wanting so much to read them.
A few other things I remember as I kid, my mom would take us kids to this fast food place and we'd bring back bags and bags of those ball bit balls, because we were thieves lol. Tiny tiny thieves.
I remember staying up late to finish Kingdom Hearts because, we were always so dang close! My brothers and I shared a room, and would stay up wayy past out bedtime to finish the first KH game, but never did. A few years later, we got KH2 and we were able to beat that pretty easy. We went back to the first KH and finally finished off that rotten Ansem for good! I didn't get to play CoM for years after, but thankfully I had the CoM Manga to fill me in on the story.
Well, I guess I've done enough rambling for now. What random memories or feelings of nostalgia do you wanna share? Feel free!
Listen. That's all you have to do. When the moon lays to rest in the dark blue bed, the wind bellows and blows across Ascendance. All you have to do is listen to the whispers. Listen to the whispers, and they will lead you to where you need to go, and what you need to find. You may be put in danger. You may be frightened and uncomfortable. You may even be pursued, but we promise; once this is all over, Ascendance will be at peace for a lifetime. This is Alice Parr; This is Jonathan Reiner; This is Percy Paulson, and I need your help.
"...This is largely why Romeo and Juliet should not be viewed as a love story." The last of her brown hair falling upon her shoulders once her head tilted for effect, Desi Vale continued to speak in front of the room, slightly reluctantly, but at the same time, appreciative of the opportunity to practice her public speaking.
"A tragedy, perhaps, as many of these occurrences could have been avoided- but the truth behind all of this is simply that Romeo and Juliet did not even attempt to know each other- their likes, their dreams, or even their hobbies. Everything they had was simply based off of Lust." Desi always hated the story of Romeo and Juliet, which is why she was glad to finally present this paper to her teacher, and simultaneously, the entire class. She ended her presentation with a simple 'thank you,' and left the paper in a small tray on the teachers front desk before going back to her own seat somewhere in the middle row.
There wasn't really much to this school- it wasn't your usual small city school with no funding, but it wasn't exactly Blackwell Academy. Of course, most of the funding went to sports, but there were still many other electives such as acting, creative writing, and chorus- which Desi herself was part of. Set up like most high schools, there were seven periods a day, with this being the final period, which meant that as soon as the bell rang, Desi would head to her locker only a few feet outside the class, store her books, and walk home. Speaking of...
That sound which most students were waiting on finally came, and with it, a rush of zipping bags and rushing feet- along with a teacher trying to remind students of something no one payed enough attention to to recall. Once at her locker, with her books away, she waited a bit to see if she could catch any familiar faces before leaving.
Personality: (USUALLY THE PERSONALITIES OF MY CHARACTERS DEVELOP AS THE ROLEPLAY GOES ON SO I DON'T LIKE ADDING PERSONALITIES, but I will add some little notes)
Big sister but not brave unless necessary, Probably has some mental issues, INSOMNIA is real, Quiet and reads too many books
Bio: Older twin of the Alabast family, her parents moved to Ascendance after her father got fired from his job and had to come to Ascendance to find one. She and her brother did not want to come to Ascendance after hearing the rumors, and Victoria has quickly developed a fear of the forest, even though she is supposed to be the 'big kid'.
Name: Alexander Alabast
Personality: (USUALLY THE PERSONALITIES OF MY CHARACTERS DEVELOP AS THE ROLEPLAY GOES ON SO I DON'T LIKE ADDING PERSONALITIES, but I will add some little notes)
Dyes his hair a lot and this time it is silver, probably has 8th grader syndrome still, his sister has to choose his clothes because he has no sense of style, is actually really funny but acts like he is not; which is why his sister says he has 8th grader syndrome.
Bio: Fraternal twin of Victoria, Alexander is the younger twin of the Alabast family. He has become extremely quiet around people that are not his sister, but when his sister is with him, he speaks. Victoria thinks it is the forest making him act so quiet and scared. Alexander, because he is older, is expected to be verbal with others and it really has adults at the school concerned. Victoria knows it is probably nothing major, but will keep an extra eye out on him. This move to Ascendance as left a tool on both of them.
Twins because why not, plus we are missing some boys so...
Name: Harrison Soto
Appearance: Often wears a short sleeved shirt, jeans, and wears tennis shoes casually, but wears black boots when he's working at the stables. If he is riding, he wears a collared shirt and breeches with tall boots. Brown eyes and dark brown hair, 5"8'
Occupation (If Student, put Student): Ranch Hand
Personality: Docile, intelligent, reserved, shy, extremely shy around girls, but incredibly brave and strong, he is also somewhat of a goofball.
Bio: Harrison has had a rough life. He was often bullied by his peers, mainly males, because of his passion for horseback riding. His parents died when he was 10, but they left him a gift; his very own horse, which was born two months before their deaths. Since then, he lived with his aunt, who owns her own stables. She has taught him the ways of riding competitively, and has won many shows. After graduating, he became a ranch hand, and is payed well, enough to a point he bought his own car. But he is still troubled by his past, and his horse, Thunder, is his only friend. He is no stranger to the myths of the city.. Sometimes at night, he would take his horse around town, mostly the school, having a quick getaway should something happen.
Name: Vic Crosley
The day I don't have to resort to stolen art of glossy anime people for rps is the day I finally rest in peace.
Personality: Vic is very inquisitive, has a big imagination, yet is very indecisive. Because of this, he loves to write short stories, mostly about adventure, romance, and fantasy. He loves to research for his stories and does it frequently. He might have to slow down on it though or else it sometimes gets in the way of his studies. He's a little bit shy when meeting new people but usually, wants to be nice to everyone. Despite all of this, he is a believer of many types of myths, legends, and stories. He tends to be on edge about the forest and going near it, but at the same time has an odd need to find out more about it. It doesn't help that he's already somewhat a worrywart.
Bio: Vic has lived in this city his whole life and is no stranger local myths and legends. In fact, he secretly likes to look that stuff up whenever it comes up but tries his hardest to not let his curiosity get the better of him. His parents never seem to bother him with whatever he's believing or imagining, but they are strict about his performance in school, which could be a whole lot better, especially with being a senior at Ascendance High. Right now, he is both trying to improve his grades as well as going around the city to research a story he's writing.
ALL ACCEPTED! I wasn't expecting this many people to sign up! We'll start after one or two more days- I have a bit of planning to do!
Have you ever lived by a forest or a group of woods? Have you ever stayed awake late at night because you swear you've seen something stirring in the distance, or heard something unusual originating from it? The citizens of Ascendance have, and are a bit too familiar with those all-mysterious bumps in the night. Age-old legends of the city are well known to most of the people of Ascendance. A devil is said to take rest in these woods and forests, one who is known for taking people in. These people either return changed in strange ways, and eventually disappear forever.
Our story begins with a set of students at Ascendance High School- a semi-well funded education facility which is located on the eastmost side of the city. The school is important due to what happens at night- desks are moved and arranged in strangest patterns, or white board markers are found with their lids off, evidencing the use of strange nonsensical drawings. Are there students sneaking in to add towards the city's legacy, or is there something more?
And why has a strange figure began appearing in distances undefinable? Could this be the Devil that everyone knows the town for? Are there some people the figure appears before more than others? If so, why these people?
Do you want to help solve the mystery? Are you a student at the school? Are you an adult who never believed in the legend, or a long-time believer? You can help reveal the truth of this town and its devil. Will you go down in history, or simply go down?
This RP is going to be very similar to mystery and supernatural shows and comics we watched and read as kids. It's also largely based around many urban legends from across the world. There may be some slight clue hunting, and even hidden messages in my own posts that may slowly reveal some truths. Think Gravity Falls! However, don't come to me for answers, because I will not give them out directly unless I choose to do so.
