WELCOME TO DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH! WE ARE AN ANIMATION PERSONIFIED SITE SET IN BOTH THE ANIMATED WORLD AND PRESENT DAY NEW YORK CITY. A TERRIBLE DARKNESS IS SPREADING THROUGH THE ANIMATED REALM, DRIVING EVERYONE FROM THEIR HOMES AND ONTO THE COLD, UNFEELING STREETS OF NEW YORK CITY. NOW THEY FIND THEMSELVES AT A CROSSROADS: DO THEY FIGHT FOR THEIR WORLD OR DO THEY TURN THEIR BACKS ON IT AND MAKE NEW YORK THEIR HOME?
WHAT WILL YOU CHOOSE?
DISCLAIMER: DERP IS KNOWN TO CAUSE DEATH BY SOUL-CRUSHING FEELS. DON'T FORGET YOUR FEELS BUCKET.
NEW YORK: 2015. SWELTERING SUMMER HEAT RISES FROM THE PAVEMENT. THE SUN IS BLINDINGLY BRIGHT AND IT SEEMS EVERY WINDOW IN THE WHOLE CITY IS OPEN, EVERY FAN PUSHING THE HOT AIR AROUND BUT NEVER MAKING THINGS BETTER. THE CITY IS BOILING AND YOU'RE BOILING WITH IT.
ANIMATED REALM: THE HUMIDITY MAKES EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD SLUGGISH - EXCEPT THE DARKNESS AND ITS CREATURES, WHICH SEEM UNAFFECTED BY THE SUMMER HEAT. STAY HYDRATED - IF YOU FALL THE DARKNESS MAY JUST CATCH UP WITH YOU.
SOMETHING STRANGE HAS BEEN HAPPENING LATELY, AND YOU CAN FEEL IT IN YOUR BONES. PERHAPS YOU'VE TRIED YOUR BEST TO IGNORE IT, BUT THERE'S NO DENYING IT NOW... THERE HAVE BEEN WHISPERS OF DARKNESS LEAKING INTO THE CITY AND RUMORS OF DISAPPEARANCES. COULD THEY BE TRUE?
10/1 THE ACTIVITY CHECK HAS BEGUN AND ENDS ON 10/4. CONTACT AN ADMIN IF YOU'RE CONCERNED ABOUT SAVING YOUR CHARACTERS!
Rily is one of those people that never fails to bring a smile to your face. Since the moment she first appeared, she's been sparking life into characters that are often overlooked. From Bonejangles to a little star sweeper from the moon, she's brought new life and many wonderful new plots to our little corner of heaven. So here we'd like to take a moment to appreciate just how wonderfully amazing she is! Our DERP family would not be the same without her. Thank you Rily, for making us smile and for sticking with us through all the hard times.
