[OC] Chelsea Ashford

18 Favourites
a ref for my new OC and protagonist for a story I came up with called 'The Village Where Ignorance is Bliss'!

Here is the synopsis:

A couple years ago from today, several people have vanished with very few clues of what happened to them or where they disappeared to. One of the many people who went missing was the fiance of Chelsea Ashford, a freelance journalist aspiring to uncover the truth. Her investigation brings her to the hidden town of Shieldsville, stepping back over a century in time. There she starts to discover the missing people and why they disappeared to this strange location, trapped in the past.

The story is kind of a mystery drama semi otome type thing lol

As for Chelsea, she's a very headstrong and determined young woman who will do anything to get what she wants. She's a risk-taker, she's quirky and speaks her mind. Chelsea will definitely shake up Shieldsville and its villagers if it means uncovering what really lies beneath the surface. She isn't the kind to take shit from anyone, nor is she particularly naive. However, she can be stubborn and selfish - she used to be a pushover, but after everything she's been through, enough is enough. Chelsea wants to become stronger and achieve the closure she has waited so long to get from the loss of her fiance.


I'd love feedback on the story idea and protagonist btw, tho dA has been dead af lately lol

i really like the idea but i have one question. are they truly back in time? ... or like metaphorically by their technology?
