    Hello Zodiac People! We now formally have enough character to start the story! I won’t be announcing Reincarnates just yet, except for returning members who will already be aware of their station! For people who see it and want to join, we will still be accepting submissions at all times, and if that stops for any reason, I will let everyone know. The doc we’ll be using as a chat & to keep track of the story is here:
    That said, here’s the first chapter!

    I woke up with a gasp, as if I’d been having a nightmare.
    Gone were the walls of Los Angeles, the ocean coming down on us, the actual gods that had stood next to us. The students I’d come to call my friends were gone, too. Niko and Leila and Erin and Drew and Polina and the rest simply weren’t there.
    But what was there was a very familiar dorm room.
    I was back at the Academy.
    Just a second of looking around confused me even more. My side of the dorm was just as I remembered it – my things all in place – but the other side of the dorm was plain as could be, any signs of a roommate nonexistent. I was living alone.
    Desperate to find other changes, I ran out to the terrace to discover one very important factor. I wasn’t in the first 4 floors of Leo Tower. I was comfortably situated in floor 6.
    And though they were slightly obscured by the school buildings, I could see the cities’ boats pulling into the docks.
    I was no longer a first year. A year had passed, somehow, without anything else changing. I was a second year.
    My mind started racing.
    Who had saved us? What were those… Animal things?
    Were Leila and the others here, at the academy, or was I alone?
    Had I still made the leaderboard my first year?
    Was I still a Reincarnate?
    Only a few of those questions were easy to answer.
    The easiest way to get those answers was to ask Leona.
    ‘Leona? Are you there?’ I thought, trying to remember how I’d talked to her before.
    ‘Oh, great! You’re finally up! You have NO idea how long it took everyone to work out that reset… Virgo kept complaining, and Aries was sulking in the corner, being of no help whatsoever… How are things on your end? Alexis didn’t ***** anything up too badly, did they?’
    ‘I see okay, at least. Not sure about the others,’ I said, relaxing at hearing how casual Leona sounded – nothing like when she was trying to help me with the Ophiuchus issue.
    I glanced back out over the school, my eyes finding the leaderboard naturally. My name glowed proudly in the #5 spot, underneath several I hadn’t seen before.
    ‘So I’m a second year, now?’ I ask. ‘Are my records from my first year here still there?’
    ‘Yes and yes,’ Leona replied. ‘Oh! And that means your unit-mates are going to be at school with you this year, aren’t they? You really chose wisely, both of them are geniuses in their fields. I can’t wait to rant to the others about how you all deserve leaderboard spots1’
    ‘What about the others? Niko? Leila?’
    “Last I checked they all chucked back to Pisces like you. Except Leila. Alexis wanted her back in 2018, and so that’s where she is. They said they wanted it to stay that way, but somehow I don’t think the odds of her staying there very long are in Alexis’ favor… If you’re having trouble finding anyone, Niko and Nastya should be in Capricorn Tower.’
    ‘But what about-’
    ‘Alexis seemed to make some changes we didn’t know about, too… Said it would prevent things from reaching where they did again. I think part of it was making sure that not all the Reincarnates were allowed to stay as they were. But you’re just fine! Have fun finding the newbies!’
    With that, Leona cut off the connection.
    I was disappointed, somewhat. I hadn’t been able to ask about how exactly we’d been able to reset, what those glowing animals were or… I still needed a lot of explanations.
    But it didn’t really matter now, did it? Ophiuhcus clearly wasn’t the reason we’d initially been chosen as Reincarnates, and so we needed to find whatever that reason was.
    I turned around, and left my room to go look for my friends.

    Hope you all enjoyed that! There’s no writing order at the moment, so anyone is free to go! Looking forward to this! Lucia out!

        Good! I really love the first chapter, but unfortunatley I have not been able to work on anything because I am extremely sick. I am getting better, but may not be able to work on the second chapter either because I have a buckload of homework that is all due tomorrow.

        They get there by ship right? So if I had a first year she would be on a ship at the beginning.

          ivypool2005 replied 2 months, 3 weeks ago

          Yes, that’s right. Although planes do exist in this worlds, so I guess she could come a more unconventional way…

          lucyeverynameoflumaria replied 2 months, 3 weeks ago

          Yeah! If you look at the first chapter of the O.G. RP, which can be found here:

          I actually did detailed descriptions of what makes each city’s chip unique! You don’t need to read all of the Alpha Timeline for the new story to make sense, but if you’re describing the boats I highly recommend at least looking at this section!

        r3eader1616 replied 2 months, 3 weeks ago

        Do we already have someone set to go next, or is it okay if I go?

          princezzdot replied 2 months, 3 weeks ago

          She said you can write whenever.

        agathaofwoodsbeyond2019 replied 2 months, 3 weeks ago

        I’d like to rejoin the RP as Alaina!

          lucyeverynameoflumaria replied 2 months, 3 weeks ago

          Yup! I already have you put in the doc, so feel free to write at any time!

        r3eader1616 replied 2 months, 3 weeks ago

        Oh, I’m sorry about this. I’m really busy at the moment, so I don’t think I’ll be able to write a chapter right now. I’m still participating in the RP, of course, I just have a lot of other stuff going on for the next few days.

        fairytalegirl123 replied 2 months, 2 weeks ago

        i’m really sorry i sound so stupid but what just happened? i want to get a chapter out before i get too deep into nanowrimo but the zodiac has
        been dead so long i forgot what just happened
        also i love this!! your writing has improved a lot since the beginning of this story :>

          ivypool2005 replied 2 months, 2 weeks ago

          Basically, they defeated Ophiuchus in the alternate timeline with the help of the Eastern Zodiac (who will not appear until much later if they even appear at all), and *for some reason* it reset the timeline so that they were back in the original timeline that the story started with. However, the timelines were kinda going in parallel (don’t ask), which means that the original characters are all in second year, but the new characters are in first year. Except Leila, who got sent back to 2018 (ancient times *cries*) because reasons.
          As you can see, I am very confident in my knowledge of what happened.
