Character Plot Summaries
1st Quarter, 2018

Closes: March 17th, 2018

Frisson writers have one thing in common. We all adore plot! The more dynamic, dramatic and dysfunctional the better! We also understand that it can be intimidating to join a new site where storylines are already in play. While we have many wanted positions open, this thread serves as a way to give members and visitors a Cliff's Notes version of the plots already in play, as well as an activity check for our members.


-Plot summaries will be updated once a quarter, in the 3rd month of the quarter. Each active character must have their own plot summaries.

-Members will have two weeks to complete their plot summary. If they do not update their plot summaries in the allotted time, their character will be deleted from the board and their threads archived.

-Characters must have a current active thread that they have posted to within ONE MONTH of the activity check in order to be considered "active". If their active thread is two months old, their character will be considered inactive. After 3 months without an active thread, the character will be deleted and face claim/title will be made available for new characters.

Last post on: 3/3/2018
Status: Open to new plots
Character Plot Summary: Charlie spent the last year pining over the loss and humiliation of being engaged to a serial killer who was grooming her to be killed herself. As society was unaware of the engagement, she carried the burden of the secret alone until her brother Joseph stepped in demanded answers. Her guilt at not knowing he was the serial strangler weighted heavily on her as five girls before her died. After his death, she was able to slowly put the past behind her and to get back to the woman she was before him. She is much more guarded and prickly than she was before.

Charlie was happy to remain single but her mother had different ideas. After an embarrassing Fox Hunt where she lead a certain Earl of Dysart wayward, her mother demanded she be engaged, and left it to Joseph to find her suitor. In a striking twist of events, the Duke of Lancaster was in attendance. While their first encounter was questionable, his persistence and love for his daughter melted the icy exterior of Charlies heart and she is tentatively accepting his courtship. Still unable to trust her heart, she is attempting to remain rational about the affair; learning all she can about the man before she gives herself completely to him.

Charlie also volunteers on the East side of London; secretly handing out food, clothing and other items to the children of one of the poorest districts in the city. It is here that she met a small boy, and the woman who would change her and her brother's life forever. After a secret affair eleven years ago, Noah's mother passed away and left him to his aunt who is now currently blackmailing Charlie for money in order to keep a secret Joseph was unaware he harbored. Now it is up to Charlie to reunite father and son, and put an end to the woman's vile plot.

They escaped and ventured back to her camp; each one finally beginning to trust each other enough to allow for the possibility of love. But when she is bitten by a snake in their last day journeying to the camp, Holden is left to deal with the band of Natives on his own. Now she fights to get well enough to return to him and tell her people their story.

But his own past haunts him and her mistrust of the woman he once proposed to drives a wedge between them. As noble as his sense of honor and duty to her family is, Izzy is jealous and pushes him away.

Now they celebrate the growth of their family.

But their future is clouded with the slow destruction of his peoples way of life. In the coming summer of battles and skirmishes, will their band be able to weather the storms and the waves of army soldiers? Or will they be blown apart or sent to the reservation?

Last post on: March

Status: Open to new plots

Character Plot Summary: Anton is the Earl of Scarborough, not by birth but through the premature death of both his father and his Elder brother, Alexander. He's been an Earl for approximately 8 months and has recently returned from India where he was stationed with the Queen's Army for the last decade and a half. It was his plan to live out the rest of his life in the military but duty has called him away from action and adventure to the dull, depressing lifelessness of London. His new duty is to marry (something he doesn't want to do) and to make a name for himself in society (something else he doesn't want to do). Due to experiences both in his youth and abroad, Anton has been rendered largely unfit for London high society. He has a thirst for violence and it's only a matter of time until he can't control it anymore.

Character Plot Summary Dennis has basically just stepped off the train into Augusta, Kansas. He's answered the want ad for a town doctor and is eager to make a good name for himself since he seems to have alienated half of the south. He's a great doctor but a pathetic human being. Mostly he likes to drink, chat up women, and do as little in the way of good as possible. In his mind, however, this town is an opportunity for a new leaf but, as we all know, people don't change.

Status: Closed to new plots

Character Plot Summary: Holden used to be a scout in the United States military, up until recently. He was raised on his family’s ranch and joined the army with enthusiasm, but has since married a native woman named Nitara. His original meeting with her went less than well, and he took her prisoner. Thought there was plenty of hostility, Holden also developed a strange affection for Nitara and, due to extenuating circumstances, they hastily married for her protection. Eventually, because of two assaults against his wife, they fled the fort and burned down their cabin to make it look like Nitara died in the fire. Pretending to grieve, Holden took a leave of absence and secretly travelled with Nitara, arriving at the Arapaho camp of Nitara’s tribe.

Character Plot Summary: Thaddeus is a Colonel in the United States Army, but is looking forward to retirement. He is a no-nonsense gentleman and keenly religious and traditional. A few years ago, he took in an “orphaned” native child whom he raised as his own and named Chelsea. He believes in bringing justice to the natives he sees as being uncivilized, and paving the way for industrialism. He has recently met Chelsea’s mother, Kimimela, though he’s currently unaware of this. Thaddeus is certainly a prude, and remains married only to his work.

She’s extremely intelligent, having taught herself much about the medical world through books. The death of her grandparents led Grace and her mother into a downward spiral, and they had to work in a sweatshop for some time. After her mother died in a terrible factory accident, Grace set out to Kansas, looking for her half-brother. She has recently accepted a job as a maid, in the meantime.

Little Talks w/ Izzy
When Stars and Salt Collide w/Izzy, Nitara Catori, Holden Kincaide, and Oh-Has-Tee
Last post on: 3/14/18
Status: Open to new plots

Character Plot Summary: Ahanu Keme is a dog soldier who has been fighting for his people for half his life. He has lost most of his immediate family to illness or violence. His two-year-long engagement to Nitara Catori with no end in sight only drove the melancholy warrior further into depression.

While on a trading trip with his best friends, Oh-Has-Tee and Askuwhetaa, Ahanu Keme won a white girl named Elizabeth Porter in a dice game. The Lakota had kidnapped her after attacking the stagecoach she was on. Ahanu Keme promised to return her to her fiance, but a series of setbacks led him to believe the Spirits had given him Izzy for a purpose. They fell in love and after a brief stay with the Lakota, returned to the Arapaho.

Only to find that Ahanu Keme's former fiancee had been kidnapped by whites and held prisoner in their fort. He joined her brothers in an attempt to liberate her, but instead, they encountered Holden Kincaide trying to bring a very injured Nitara Catori back to them. Ahanu Keme kept the other dog soldiers from killing Holden but felt betrayed by the white man when he attacked the dog soldier guarding him. He and Izzy had a misunderstanding about his feelings and duty towards Nitara Catori, which ended with Izzy confronting them and the revelation she was with child. While grateful for the blessing, Ahanu Keme is even more unsure what the correct path ahead is. Another summer of pointless warfare doesn't seem like the answer, but surrendering to a reservation is out of the question.

He knows he doesn't want to leave the women and children of the Arapaho defenseless and alone while the few dog soldiers travel to the lands of the Lakota to try to stop the white man's advance. Constant warfare hasn't worked, there has to be another answer.

His lack of desire and interest in taking over his duties has ebbed, Charlie's depression concerned him enough he stuck his neck out for her. Feeling the weight of responsibility and certain deep down he's the last person who should be making decisions that affect other people's lives, he confided in Charlie and encouraged her interest in the family businesses.

To everyone's surprise, Joseph announced at his family's fall gala that he is engaged to Ottilie Grayson, an American whose father is an exiled marquess. That same weekend led to his mother demanding he find Charlie a husband. It was only a miracle that his old friend Cage Blackbourne asked to court his sister. He, of course, agreed. Even though he worries for both of them being too insular to open up to each other.

Joseph is spending the last week or two of October in London to prepare for a trip to Cornwall to see to his duties there and introduce his fiancee to the county. He'll soon have his illegitimate son revealed to him and have to deal with that. As well, one of Joseph's friends was killed at a sex club, he'll be trying to help Arthur Tully solve the crime.

Character Plot Summary: Johnny Buckner has been the deputy in Augusta for the last three years. Native to Georgia, he was crippled and suffered trauma during the Indian wars. Dependent on laudanum to get through the day, he always hid his problems from everyone and was known to be kind, fair, and dependable.

In spring, Johnny was tracking down a female outlaw. He caught her because she was wounded. She escaped when a lightning storm triggered a traumatic relapse. Johnny tried to put this behind him, hoping Jess would head for the hills and forget he existed. Ignoring the worsening pain in his bad leg and becoming more dependant on painkillers to get through the day, Johnny continued like nothing was different.

Jess returned, lying in wait in his boarding room to ambush him. He managed to get her gun away from her and try to find out what she wanted. When he tried to cuff her to bring her in, Jess kicked him in his bad knee. The sheriff found him on his bedroom floor in agony. A trip to Wichita ended with Johnny losing his leg from the knee down from a severe infection in the old wound.

Eli and his family have been caring for Johnny as he recovers from surgery and withdrawal. But it'll be a long road.

Character Plot Summary: Cash owns Augusta's only saloon. The girls who rent rooms from him are mostly prostitutes, over the last five years, they've worked out a mutually beneficial relationship. Things are not so rosy between him and Augusta's new madame, although they have buried the hatchet between them recently and worked out a truce that allows Rose to keep face while helping some of Cash's old army buddies and their families get some work. He's still not too impressed with Rose and thinks she's in way over her head, but he has a soft spot for soiled doves and strays thrown away by society.

The most recent stray is problematic. Cash isn't too impressed by her piss and vinegar either, but he's not about to toss her out on her ear with two bullet wounds healing. She'll find her place or move on, just like the rest of his girls. Cash doesn't plan to lose his saloon, no matter what the men who control the town want to do to pretty it up for the railroad's arrival in a couple of years. For now, he and his girls are making good money serving the railroad workers.
