@Dawn and Gleam if you have any questions about this draft, please ask. And correct, if necessary, and of course add feedback to what I should remove and whatnot. Please read through the entire thing carefully (just in case I made a silly mistake), including the notes (which are my annoying questions, xD.
Way to read this: I tried to make font different and style different so it's easier to read. Thanks! When this is approved, I will post it. The font on here will probably not be there on the actual thread. And I will cry if this doesn't go through...
Title: The Lost Ones--Story Signup Thread--6 Spots Left
My name is Rowan Vierra and I am one of the Lost Ones. Who are the Lost Ones? We were the ones who survived the disease that wiped out almost all of the Earth's population. Now, we are the last hope of the future of the human race.
The year is 4205 and just 6 months ago, 99.99% of the Earth's population died. Only a few of us survived, although no one is sure if that is a better fate. Those who survived became the Lost Ones. In Other, put "The".
When we became the Lost Ones, the almost sole survivors of the disease epidemic, we were granted superhuman powers that came with a terrible price. Not only were the few normal people who had not succumbed afraid to allow us to care for them, we became monsters. Every day, we become less and less human, and more animal. We call it the Madness. At first, it wasn't so bad. Every once in a while, for mere moments, odd feelings overtook us. Some of us craved raw meat, others felt an irrational fear of the others around them, and some tried to climb or burrow underground before coming to their senses. We thought we could ignore it, go on with our lives. We were wrong. The Madness became worse. The moments became minutes, or even hours. We would wake up in the middle of the night to find we had torn our bedding to pieces, or had destroyed an entire house. We also dreamed of being animals, being wild. Some of us thought it might not be so bad. After all, animals had no responsibilities and could do as they pleased. Then, a scout who had been searching for other survivors came back with news of remote research facility, in which scientists who had found a cure for the disease were rumored to be located. Even if the scientists were dead, they might have research papers. We could find a cure for the sick normal people and possibly for our Madness! In Other, put "Lost".
Many of the Lost Ones had wondered if there could be a cure for the disease, a cure that would save the few remaining living people who had not become Lost Ones. After all, all of the Lost Ones are young, the oldest only 18. None of the Lost Ones know how to care for ill people, or run a society.
We need the last living adults to survive. Without them, the Earth will become an empty planet, uninhabited. However, with the Madness growing inside of us, is the journey worth the risk, especially if the rumors prove to be wrong?
12 of the Lost Ones decide that they will find the supposed research facility, in hopes that if there are scientists inside, they will have a cure both for the disease and the Madness. This group of Lost Ones have reasons other than themselves, though. The 12 who take up the quest are all related in some way to one of the sick adults, who are only kept alive through suspension tanks that keep them in a state halfway between alive and dead. With time running out, the team must find the research facility and get the cure in time. After all, now the disease has mutated and not even Lost Ones are immune. In Other, put "Ones".

Thanks to all who allowed us the use of your characters! :D
-The spots that are taken came from the RP, all those who confirmed that we can use their characters in the story. If needed, I can copy and paste the forms somewhere so they're accessible :D.
-Spot Number 5 would have been J.J. Connix, by Alex, and Spot Number 8 would be Austin Shane, by Fangs, but I didn't get their permission to use their characters, so I'm not sure if I should include those two characters as part of the story, or no. Also, I noticed that Winter’s character isn’t very specific, and I am unsure about what to do about that.
-Also, if there are only 4 spots remaining (if Connix and Shane are useable), is it still necessary for a story signup thread?
-Will the story be rotating from the POVs of different Lost Ones going on the quest, or should it just be from Rowan's?
-Does Gleam have a character? And where is he/she?
-Finally, the form. I think I made it way too specific, either that or I missed some things. Please help with that; thanks! :D
