Welcome to Moon Bound, an original supernatural RPG set in the fictional town of Thunder Cove, Washington.
Its early winter 2013, and the snow is already getting deep in the small coastal town of Thunder Cove. Things in this picturesque tourist town aren't exactly what they seem. Nothing in the world is what it seemed anymore, its as if the closer the world came to that fateful day on the Mayan calendar, the more the supernatural creatures of the world woke up and made their presence known. The fae are walking among us now, as are the old spirit guides and warriors of old Native American lore. The werewolf, vampire, and skinwalker populations have all taken a sudden rise, and the witches of old who had thought their powers lost to them have suddenly found themselves able to do magic again. The world hasn't ended, but its changing. Some say for the better, some say for the worst. In Thunder Cove, the population is split in half knowing that their town is a supernatural hot spot can make things difficult-- especially when the normal members of the population are part of the food chain.

It was the day after her shopping trip with Luna and AJ was still no where to be found. She'd asked her dad if he'd come home and as far as the Alpha wolf knew, his son hadn't been home in at least a day or better. That made Payton's somewhat lighter mood dampen and she visibly let it show as her shoulders slumped and she disappeared back to her room. For a while she just sat in the big bay window looking out at Thunder River and the forest beyond and wondering where her big brother was. She felt herself torn in two, she loved her brother and she loved Brayden and it hurt how her brother seemed to reject the idea of she and Bray together. At the thought of Brayden, Payton looked over at her computer and the picture she'd taken recently of the two of them that was now her desktop. She wanted to see him, no she needed to see him.
Without another moment's thought she grabbed her cell and her keys, telling her dad where she was going and that if AJ happened to bring his hot headed ass home (those words she used exactly) to Alpha command him to stay put if he had to, or sit on him until she got home. The command slash request had her father chuckling at his fiery tempered daughter who quickly darted in the room where he was reading and kissed her father on the cheek before smiling at him weakly. It was obvious how the way her brother was acting was affecting his daughter and Roland Dallas was determined to do anything in his power to make her smile totally again. He loved to see his little girl smile and knowing she was hurt because of her brother made a low rumble escape his throat. He would have a talking with that boy when he did get home that was for certain.
Pay had caught the rumble escape her father's throat and felt her brows raise to disappear beneath long bangs. "Dad... you okay?" She asked, pausing at the door.
"I'm fine Princess. Go on and see Brayden." The older man assured her with a smile that made his eyes dance and the skin at the corners of his eyes crinkle. It was a sign that eased Payton as she nodded and gave her father one last smile before heading out and leaving Roland with his book and his thoughts.
The drive up to Storm Beach and the house where Brayden lived... where she could live if she would accept his offers wasn't that long, but it seemed like it stretched forever with how down she was. Finally she was parked near the house and got out but she couldn't make herself walk up to the door just yet. She eyed it, knowing Bray would know she was there soon if he was home, but she couldn't go see him just yet. Tears were too close to the surface and so instead she turned towards the beach. She needed a moment or two to herself before she saw him.
Pay shivered slightly, her thin carigan offered no protection from the cool ocean wind that whipped her hair around her face as she walked, her arms wrapped around her and keeping the thin gray cardigan pulled tight around her slender frame. For a while she walked as she let the hurt finally wash over her of the last few days that she'd kept bottled up. Quiet tears rolled down her tan and freckled cheeks as she finally found a large piece of driftwood off from the edge of the surf a bit and away from the house and eased down on it. She hoped that the wind wouldn't betray her for a while as she finally allowed herself to break. It wasn't often that the redhead fell apart, and when she did it was usually in private where no one could see her. Normally she was as strong as her brother and father-- at least emotionally and she had yet to allow herself time to really ache over her big brother's horrible reaction. How could it have gone so wrong? He should've been happy for her, for his best friend! Instead he was angry and Payton didn't understand why.
For a while Payton sat there, numb to the cold and wind. Her mind was a blur of thoughts and emotions ranging from anger, to hurt, to confusion. Why had things taken such a turn south just when she thought she had everything finally falling into place? Pay didn't know how long she was out there as she let herself cry until she had no more tears for the moment and finally felt more a little like herself-- if only but a little. She still had to hold it together when she saw Brayden when she went to the house. That was if he was even there. Pay sighed as she looked out at the water, she would give herself a few more minutes though before she got up and went to see the man she loved and hoped he could help cheer her up.

Anger and betrayal, those were such strong feelings, but it was hard for Brayden not to feel them when he stood at the window looking out at the beach from his kitchen. The house was deserted, which was unusual for this time of day; however most of his wolves knew how he was feeling and he was more than certain they were steering clear of him for a while. It was a smart move on their part, though he was the alpha and could control his changes more than anyone else, he wasn't sure if he'd be able to control his temper if someone said something stupid to him today. It wasn't that he would intentionally be a dick to anyone, but with what all had just gone down in the last few days, it wasn't like it helped improve his mood. This whole situation was complicated and not exactly what he had in mind when he thought about a mate. It was partially the reason why he didn't want to pick a mate to begin with. Not that he'd give up Payton for anything even if her brother was being a dick about it. She was everything to him.
As he stared out the window into the churning tide, he could hear the earlier conversation Sonora had preached at him. Something about him being a sour puss and that he needed to cheer the fuck up before he depressed everyone around him. He had brushed her off like he normally did, but he was upset. He felt like not only was this entire situation causing him and Payton to have issues when their relationship was just beginning, but he was losing his one and only brother. It wasn't something he was prepared for. If someone had told him that this was going to happen two months ago, he'd never have believed them. AJ and him were so close, he thought it would take a lot more than just him falling in love with Payton for AJ to really break their bond. Deep down though he knew that this wouldn't last. The two were too close for this to ruin everything. And he wouldn't let this effect him and Payton, though he knew that it already was in a way.
Taking a deep breath he smelled her. He would know that smell from ten miles away in the middle of a rain storm, it was so familiar to him. There was an instant smile on his face, though a small one. Feeling his heart start to beat slightly faster, he heard her car pulling up. He knew that she'd come to him, though she hadn't spoken to him in a day or so. AJ had run off and not been heard from since he had found out. Such a hot tempered thing to do, Brayden thought to himself. The thoughts caused him to instantly feel the anger boil back up in his blood. He wanted to throw something, or punch a hole in something. There wasn't a way to release the anger he was feeling. Payton was here though, he couldn't do something that would make her upset. Taking a deep breath he slammed his fist into the counter. It gave easily enough beneath his hard fist. The feeling of the marble counters giving way under his fist caused the boiling in his veins to instantly subside. Sighing he glanced down. Awesome, now he was going to explain why the island in the kitchen was smashed and he would have to fix it. Add that to the list of things to do.
The sound of the car door and foot steps heading away from the house towards the beach caused him to look up at the window. It didn't take her long to appear and disappear down the beach. A small smile came to the corner of his lip at the sight of her beautiful form, but then he suddenly felt anxious. Why did AJ have to make this so complicated. It wasn't that bad was it? Maybe they shouldn't be together, perhaps AJ was right. Maybe he should give her up so that her relationship with her brother wouldn't be damaged. He couldn't and wouldn't ask her to do that for him. Sighing he made his way out the back door holding his jacket in his hands. Reaching the beach, Brayden slowly reached out and hung his jacket on the shoulders of Payton. Reaching his arms around her waste from behind he kissed the back of her head. Whispering in her ear "Hello beautiful."
