Roleplay / Bioshock Above The Sea

The people I have met in Maris are undoubtedly the best friends I have ever had, but they are also my worst enemies. Maybe if I was kinder, I would've retained my sanity.....

1970, on the east shores of Maine, people came to the surface. Dangerous people. Nice people. Evil people. And the death of many innocents as a result. The Above the Sea Roleplay (started by madness2920) quickly became the most popular BioShock forum on Fanfiction, later the only live one.

Provides examples of:

  • Seven Deadly Sins- Wrath, Envy, and Lust have made an appearance.
  • Abusive Parents- Andrea and Samantha had these, which resulted in them killing them. Well, for Samantha, thats not entirely true
  • Action Girl- Hooo, boy, not very rare here. Andrea, Fever, Alice ,Samantha when in protector mode, and Kelly once she becomes a protector.
  • A God Am I- Subverted. Though Iris seems like this at first, it would be idiotic since she knew she was under Guujins control.
  • Alcohol Hic- Remember the truth or Dare seen in RP #1. John and Andrea drank a bit too much Subverted. Andrea had been taking pills to stop her from getting drunk, explained when Samantha notes that Andrea gets really drunk, really fast.
  • All There in the Manual- Most of the characters know each other from a different RP, one that died and was deleted long ago. Oh well.
  • Apologetic Attacker- Samantha. Without a doubt. Sometimes John, when having no choice.
  • Ax-Crazy- Jim. Need I say more?
  • Badass Boast:
    Zero: The best laid plans...of mice and men...are ALWAYS due to fail. And you Guujin...are an idiot.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For- Remember when Andrea wanted to fight Jim? Well, she got to.
  • Berserk Button- For John, hurting Kelly. For Samantha, hurting Andrea. For Andrea, calling her Arbedella (...)
  • Brainwashed and Crazy- Guujin makes quite a few of these.
  • Break the Cutie- Andrea and Samantha were adorable little girls...
  • Chekhov's Gun- Zero is this in living form. Nothing he does is unintentional. Nothing.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience- Eyes. The good characters are usually normal colured, red eye charries (Zero, Andrea, Guujin) seem to be bad news. And pink eyes means hypnotized, how convenient!
  • Dark and Troubled Past- Oh god where to start?
  • Deadly Doctor- Togi and Haku
  • Death Seeker- Zero wishes for nothing more than to find someone strong enough to kill him.
  • Enfant Terrible- Isn't Guujin cute?
  • Even Evil Has Standards- Zero is usually disgusted at Guujin's or previously Iris's methods of destruction.
  • Evil Laugh- Zero is the living trope for this but every character has got their evil laugh groove on at least once.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom- Zero's eyes almost constantly glow. Other character's eye glowing generally means that the gloves have come off.
  • Godis Evil- The little eight year old who murders on a daily basis? She was lonley, so she made two people who were named after her parents. Then they ate her food....
  • Hand Cannon- One word: Rose.
  • I Shall Taunt You- Zero's favourite pastime.
  • Ironic Echo- Zero has an amazing memory spanning many centuries. No matter what he'll be able to pick out something said to him by his rival and put an ironic spin on it.
  • Limited Wardrobe- No matter what happens Zero is stuck in his original clothing. Helps that the clothes he's stuck in are really snazzy.
  • Meaningful Name- Zero's name is an indication on the fact that even he doesn't know what he is so, to his knowledge he's the only one of his kind. He wears the name like a badge of honour.
  • Mind Rape- Zero will do this to humiliate his opponents just before crushing them. Guujin's spore physically mind rape you.
  • Normally, I Would Be Dead Now- Every character has gone through this point at some stage or another even going so far as to quote the trope itself.
  • Person of Mass Destruction- Raven.
  • Psychotic Smirk- Zero constantly wears one of these at all times. The only exceptions being when he frowns. You won't like it when he frowns.
  • Razor Floss: zero's bread and butter. As his default weapon he is closer to it's materialised form Dark than the other two.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!- The way Andrea gets away with everything she can't solve by being sneaky.
  • Shirtless Scene- Just after Dark's fight with Raven Dark's left without the majority of his clothing then goes to stay with Andrea. This could be considered as a Crowning Moment of Funny given that Andrea fancies the pants off of Zero who is an almost-exact replica of Dark but he is completely oblivious to it.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech- Zero likes to give on of these even if he's losing a fight in an attempt to enrage his opponent even further.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill- AND HOW!
  • Unexplained Recovery- Practically everyone uses this trope surprisingly without god modding…
  • Verbal Tic- "~guu?"
  • Yandere- Anna ties Dominic up and keeps him in a room filled with pictures of him, much to his dismay
