"Negative Capability, that is, when a man is capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason." - John Keats




Welcome


This is a role-playing community. The idea is to assume the role of your character (an author who died before 1980) and maintain a fictional LiveJournal about their day-to-day life written from their perspective.

Welcome to Icaria. The town is quite an odd one; it is quiet and does not attract much attention, it has no chain stores or restaurants, and it is home to a school called Eupheme, where odd occurrences sometimes happen. Monsters who feed on brainwaves, a high school student building a time machine... But then, what do you expect when you put together some of most creative and witty minds of ages past? The most frightening thing is that the students seem to think this is normal.
