A parafandom roleplay on LiveJournal, the general story is that people from all worlds and times have been brought to this place in-between worlds called the Nexus. Part of its charm is that it lets players do what they will, meaning most events are player-hosted. There is an underlaying plot which occasionally comes into play, but it changes (sometimes dramatically) depending on the characters who participate in events and the things they do, making it a more dynamic story than anything else.Now has a tumblr - Texts From the Nexus
Action Girl: Nearly every female at some point or other but standouts are Annabeth, Faith, Laura, Buffy.
Adults Are Useless: Can be the attitude of some of the more combat-experienced Academy students.
It has to be noted, however, that this is just an attitude. Often when they're called in, the adults are more than capble of helping out.
Anachronism Stew: Happens but with less Fish Out of Temporal Water outcomes than you might expect. As a rule of thumb, the general 'time-period' of the Nexus seems to be somewhere amongst the late 90s to contemporary.
Intergenerational Friendship: There is a lot of this in the Nexus, due to the Time Lords and vampires. Some examples would be the Master's friendship with Morgana, the Doctor's friendship with Gazza, and Eric with Vlad.
Kid Hero: At least half of the students at the Academy.
Local Hangout: The Academy has shades of this due to simply being where most people end up. Fangtasia is another good example, as is the Town Hall.
My God, What Have I Done?: X's reaction after being freed from Maverick's influence, though with less words and more horrified choking noises.
Andrea, again, after numerous break the cutie moments.
Odd Friendship: Considering the characters can come from any world or time, it's pretty much a guarantee.
Though perhaps the strangest is X and Otto. Yes, Mega Man X and Otto Octavius are best friends. It's somehow both heartwarming and bizarre.
Then again, Otto's player has repeatedly stated that X's friendship, acceptance, and care are the things that's helped Otto regain and hold onto his sanity. X literally used the power of friendship to make Otto somewhat of a good guy.
Older than They Look: X looks roughly around 25-27 years of age. He's around 200 years old. Could also be considered Really 700 Years Old, though in a more mild sense. Justified considering he's a Reploid and thus doesn't age or wear out.
The Time Lords (yes, there's more than one), and the vampires obviously. Oh, and Aphrodite.
Reasonable Authority Figure: Generally speaking, one of the Doctors or even the Master. To the Academy kids, Jamie Madrox is generally seen in this light.
Reed Richards Is Useless: Played with. While the many genuises in the Nexus have been able to make strides in understand it, and creating ways to travel betweeen realities, there wil be the occasional plot post that completely destroys their progress.
