A/N: Basically, my first attempt at a more… darker story. After all, you'll never know unless you try. And eventually, you'll have to face the truth. And the horrors that come with it.
Also, winners of The TimeTraveling Generation will be mentioned at the bottom.
My name is Alexandra Grant. But my friends instead call me Alex.
What I'm about to tell you is absolutely true. Not all of it you'll like. After all, we are cursed. We you say? Not you, just me and my friends. I have seven, and just like me, they aren't normal.
It's not like we can transform into blood-thirsty monsters, but our 'gift' isn't exactly the greatest either. It's what landed two of us into the crazy house and tormented us for years. Bottom line, you're lucky you're not living like us.
Our… specialty… is to see history. Not just any history, but events related to our home country. For me, I can see clear as day the building of the White House or when immigrants came to Ellis Island.
Sounds cool, hmm? Wrong.
I used think that it was awesome to see all this. But that all changed when I saw Chicago burn right in front of me. That's when reality kicked in.
What's the saying, it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt? Well, to me, it's like watching an amazing movie until you see that one soldier get shot.
For years I avoided going to places like New York and Houston, Texas because I was afraid. I even thought that it was best for me to isolate myself from society altogether. But that all changed when I met Daisuki and Sheng Li.
They were newcomers to school, and just like me, they were cursed. But Daisuki saw the history of Japan instead of America. For his cousin, Sheng Li, he saw the history of China. They were also scared, and rarely talked to anyone. That is, until I made friends with them. Just like that, I felt less lonesome.
They also were proof that I'm not the only one suffering.
But that's not all. You see, most of the events of American history I saw had one man in it. A man who was at the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. Which was very strange. He had to be over a hundred years or so.
Yet he was still there, looking as young as a graduated high school student, cowlick and all.
Sometimes I saw him laughing, other times he looked solemn. To me, he was someone important to this land. But who was he? Is he even still alive?
Turns out Daisuki also has a 'mystery man' in his visions as well. A Japanese man wielding a katana with an expressionless look on his face.
For Sheng Li, he saw a man with long dark hair in a ponytail who talked to a dragon and wielded a wok.
No, I don't think he was lying.
Something was up, and we intended to find out. After all, they might be connected to our curse, and, if they were nice enough, could possibly help us get rid of it. We just HAD to find them.
Little did I know of what we were getting ourselves into.
Winners Whose OCs will be in the TimeTraveling Generation:

Also, another anonymous reviewer chose Feliciano Vargas (and forgot to type in a name -_-) and Gilbert has been chosen by a friend of my partner, CanadiaPower.
If your OC wasn't chosen, then wait for the second chapter of The TimeTraveling Generation for another chance to submit an OC. But remember, it will be a different kind of OC.
Other than that, hope you have a happy holiday and a famtastic New Year! God Bless you all!
