--> ''"Welcome To The Cauldron! Because I couldn't come up with a better name."'' -->-- '''Velvien''', Forum Admin and Supposed First Post. --> ''"Goddamn it Bonesy"'' -->-- Velvien's Actual First Post and Forum Catchphrase A roleplay forum made by fans of the BlazBlue series. What happens when you take a crack pairing for a fairly well-known video game series and post a Fanfic of it on the web? Normally, you get laughed out of the internet with reviews saying "That Would Never Happen." Velvien thought differently. Taking two characters from BlazBlue, he decided he liked them both so much, he was going to pair them up. Normally, this kind of thing leads to disaster, especially between Ragna, the main protagonist, and Tsubaki, a justice obsessed girl working for the opposite side. In canon, they would hate each other on sight. However, Velvien somehow made this work in his fanfic, On Strange Wings. It garnered so much praise, that he made a sequel and somehow, the Ragbaki pairing was born and embraced. Then he and 3To3dSl0th decided to make an RP forum. Cause they're cool like that. Velvien's two Ragbaki Fanfics can be found [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6818687/1/On_Strange_Wings here]] for On Strange Wings and [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7239002/1/At_Fates_Hands here]] for its sequel, At Fate's Hands. The forum can be found [[http://w11.zetaboards.com/The_Cauldron/index/ here]] !The Cauldron Includes: !!A list of tropes about the main roleplay plot Sad Wings Of Destiny: * DevelopmentHell: First wanted to start when all character slots were filled. Then it was going to start on February 14th. Then it was pushed back again to March 1st. And some people are considering leaving. It is yet to be seen if this will go the way of DukeNukemForever !! A list of tropes about the Freelance RP section * AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: The entire point of the Freelance section. Its main use is to come up with any plot using any character from BlazBlue, not just who you picked for the main roleplay in Sad Wings Of Destiny. It's often played for laughs, but sometimes, good drama and even grimdark roleplays take place there. ** And many, many lemons. * {{Badass}}: In every single RP topic, no matter who plays him, no matter what the situation, it seems impossible to play [[BattleButler Valkenhayn R. Hellsing]] as anything other than a [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen classy]] [[GentlemanSnarker as]] [[CulturedBadass hell]] werewolf butler. No matter what. * TheCameo: [[BlackLagoon Balalaika]] is Actorverse! Terumi's agent. * CompleteMonster: Hazama in "Shattered", UpToEleven. Even Blue Paladin, who was [=RPing=] him at the time, had a HeroicBSOD upon realizing he wrote such an evil character. * CrackPairing: Several, but especially "Jignis" (Jin x Ignis, Carl's MOTHER). Blue Paladin, a notorious anti-shipper, was not amused at [=GenocidalWurmpleArakune's=] accidental flirting. * {{Crossover}}: [[BlazBlue Blaz]][[{{Minecraft}} Craft]]. * CrowningMomentOfFunny: Many, but among the top is "Jin's Sobriety Method", which involves him freezing his head in a block of ice and smashing it against the bar. ** '''ALL HAIL TO THE WHISKEY KING!''' * CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: The NSFW [[BrotherSisterIncest Ragna x Nu]] RP "Ragna the Nurse" is one right after another. D'awww! ** A fair bit of the [[CrackPairing Ragna x Tsubaki]] RP "Ahriman" is along the same lines at times. * EnsembleDarkhorse: The entire Actorverse. Who could have predicted that an RP about the Blazblue cast actually being the actors of the story would take off as well as it did? ** Azure Days Rachel has been well-recieved for being kinder and more down-to-earth than her canonical counterpart, while still retaining her sense of class, wit, and sarcasm. ** In the Ragna x Makoto RP "Cape Lilies", at one point, Makoto meets a talking koi called Codswallop - [[CrowningMomentOfFunny who is constantly angry and yelling at everything and everyone]]. This crazy carp has become a favorite among forumers. * HighSchoolAU: A surprisingly successful... well... ''college'' AU called Azure Days was created by GyppyGirl2021. Of note: Rachel is an actual young girl, Nu actually has only one eye and Ragna... still has heterochromia and white hair, for whatever reason. ** [[MustHaveCaffeine "Blacker than the blackest black of all!"]] * {{Irony}}: The fact that [[LackOfEmpathy Relius]] [[TheSociopath Clover]] runs a Psychology Clinic in one topic. * LauncherOfAThousandShips: Ragna, Nu, Noel and Tsubaki. Usually with each other. * OhCrap: The beginning of "Widowmaker". ** From "Somewhat Dysfunctional": "Hey there, Rags. Jayoku Hotenjin." * StarMakingRole: "The Thirsty Officer" was a general good humour thread. Then Blue Paladin came in as [[DeadpanSnarker Grumpy And Sarcastic Jin]] complaining about his treatment in the games and fanfics over the phone to his agent. The portrayal cemented Actor!Jin as a crowd favourite and any Actorverse topic is pretty much guaranteed to have him in it. ** In the same thread, Mu-12 was introduced as Noel's stunt double, and was even more shy and sweet than her. This caught on pretty quickly too. Same goes for Arakune as a relatively sane... "person". * ToyShip: [[CuteShotaroBoy Carl]] x [[TokenLoli Platinum]], courtesy of 3To3dSl0th and Shuji Nonohana. * UnstoppableRage: Black Beast Ragna in "Atrocity". ** For a more [[CrowningMomentOfFunny comedic]] example, talking koi Codswallop in "Cape Lilies". !!A list of tropes about the members of The Cauldron: * BerserkButton: Velvien [[{{Understatement}} doesn't particularly like]] netplay lag. ** Mentioning any of the Murakumo units in an even slightly negative light around [=GyppyGirl2021=] will result in UnstoppableRage. Most notably, misinterpretations of their character. ** Jin_K for pretty much the same reason, except about Litchi instead. * BigEater: For whatever reason, Velvien is almost always hungry. * ButtMonkey: Musashi is often picked on by other members of the forum for being slow at posting and a general goofy fanboy. [[{{Tsundere}} They all still love him, though.]] * {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Bonesy. Ironically, he and [[OnlySaneMan Velvien]] are good friends. * DynamicEntry: [=JoshuaVv's=] introduction * DysfunctionJunction: [[{{Understatement}} Just a little]]. * FiveManBand: The main group of the forum. ** TheHero: Velvien ** TheLancer: 3To3dSl0th ** TheSmartGuy: Bonesy ** TheBigGuy: Musashi ** TheChick: [=GyppyGirl2021=] ** TheSixthRanger: Blue Paladin * HiddenDepths: Pretty much nearly everybody. For example, Blue Paladin is generally an easy going guy with the occasional bout of rage. Some of his roleplays are the absolute darkest on the forum. ** [=GyppyGirl2021=] first heard about BlazBlue by means of being a troper - she stumbled upon the page for it long before she actually got into the series. And yes, she shipped Ragna x Noel back then, too. * ICallHerVera: Blue Paladin's [[{{BFG}} blunderbuss]] Charleen. * LesYay: [=GyppyGirl2021=] is a self-proclaimed lesbian for Nu and Noel. ** BiTheWay: However, she also likes Ragna and Hakumen. * LovableSexManiac: [=GyppyGirl2021=], Gleam, even Velvien himself. There's a reason the NSFW forum exists and it's linked to the reason why those three posters have almost triple the amount of posts than anyone else on the entire forum. ** Half the forumers are probably this, to an extent. [[CovertPervert Though some are much less likely to admit it.]] [[spoiler: It's not going to be Blue Paladin]] * MemeticBadass: Blue Paladin and Gleam. ** Carl is a top hat-wielding boss like no other. * MemeticMutation: Gyppy has tried to make [[DotHackGUGames Endrance's cat]] catch on as a meme. It... [[EpicFail hasn't worked out so well.]] ** "lewd" * {{Nakama}}: And they always look out for any new guys too. -->'''Blue Paladin:''' ''"If there's ever a zombie apocalypse, we'll video chat for the first time so we can know what each other looks like. Then we'd go our seperate ways to go kick zombie ass."'' * NightmareFuel: Blue Paladin after having too many cans of Relentless, leading all to wonder if he was actually insane. -->'''Blue Paladin:''' ''"Reality needs to burn..."'' * ObfuscatingStupidity: Arguably Bonesy. * OnlySaneMan: Velvien, occasionally. [=MaesLawliet=] and [=3To3dSl0th=] can qualify as well. Blue Paladin tries. And always fails somewhere along the way. * {{OTP}}: A few cases, most notably Velvien's [[CrackPairing Ragna x Tsubaki]]. ** OT3: Gyppy's [[BrotherSisterIncest "Ragnuel"]]. And to a lesser extent, Velvien's "Ragnubaki". ** [[NoodleIncident Tager x Duck]] * PetTheDog: Literal example. Gyppy is often seen doting on, talking to, petting or [[PokeThePoodle annoying]] her dog Cocoa. * RedOniBlueOni: Many examples. Velvien and Bonesy, Blue Paladin and MaesLawliet...hell, pretty much the entire forum can be divided as such. * ShipperOnDeck: Almost everyone on the forum is for Gyppy x Velvien. * TheVoiceless: [=MaesLawliet=] is the voice of them apparently. * {{Troll}}: '''''GLEAM.'''''
