Some general notes for when you apply:
- At this time, we're currently not accepting applications for Duel Monsters, animal characters, GX characters, or original characters. This may change in the future.
- If you're new to the RP, you now have a two-week period to wait before you can apply for a second character. If you were to pick up three characters right off the bat, and then proceeded to do absolutely nothing but sit there like a bump on a log, then that's not fair to someone else who might've wanted to apply for a character you picked up. Basically, you want to see how well you adjust to the RP's environment and see how active you can be with the first one before you go and pick up another.
Name: Doesn't have to be your real name, just what you go by on the internets. ;3
AIM: In this comm, RPing is usually - almost 100% of the time - done through AIM. We also do a lot of group RPs via AIM chatrooms. Where can we find you here? You can use your regular one, or you can make one specifically for the RP if you want to; it doesn't matter. If you don't use AIM, just list whatever you do use.
E-mail: This is for if the mods need to contact you, and we can't find you on AIM or LJ.
ZOMG!: If you read the rules, then you know what to put here. ♥
Character: Who are you applying for? Make sure to specify whether it's IC or OOC!
Personality: This is mainly for if you're applying for an OOC character. We'd just like to know how you plan on portraying them - doesn't have to be really long, a short summation of the character's most basic personality traits will do fine; we'll see the rest through RP. ;3 Although you do get brownie points if you app an IC character and fill this in a bit. We'd like to know that you actually know the character you're playing (IC!Shizuka isn't a slut, IC!Seto isn't a crackhead, etc).
Sample Journal Post: Just a basic posting as your character. Some people have, oddly enough, had a really hard time figuring this concept out. 8| So here's an example of what we're looking for - say you're apping for IC!Shizuka:
Today I went and had lunch with my big brother. Of course, he wanted to eat hamburgers. Afterward we went to the movies. I wanted to see "Spring Fling", but he wanted to see "Action Heroes United". It took us a while to decide, but then he said we could see what I wanted to, since he got to pick what we had for lunch! Isn't he the best big brother ever? :D I bet he enjoyed it, even if he did gag at the romantic scenes. Heehee.
I had a lot of fun, big brother! When can we hang out again? ♥
Sample RP Post: This is a bit different; this is a short third-person post, like you would do if you were RPing with someone else. This doesn't have to be very long, just a couple of paragraphs. It's mainly to get an idea of your skill level. EXAMPLE DESU:
Shizuka walked up to the bus stop, a big smile on her face. She was going to hang out with her big brother today! It had been a long time since they'd seen each other, so she was excited. In fact, she was so excited that she hadn't slept well the night before - she kept tossing, and turning, and no matter how hard she tried, she just couldn't fall asleep.
Needless to say, she was quite tired, but she was sure that as soon as she saw her brother, she'd perk right up.
Now, for your convenience, here's a handy-dandy little blank template for you to use!
All comments will be screened until they have been accepted.
One of the moderators will either e-mail you or comment with whether you've been accepted or not. If the mods don't respond right away, it's probably for a reason (since we do have lives outside of the internet); try not to worry about it unless a week's gone by and you've not heard a response. If you're accepted, make a journal for your character and join this community with it; you'll have a week to make the journal before your character is put up for grabs again. It's also recommended that you watch the community with your regular journal, so you can be notified of things like new plotlines, large-scale group RPs, and character cuts. Only make a journal after one of the moderators has accepted you. This is because if more than one person applied for the same character and you don't get picked for it, but you already made the journal, it'll be a waste of an LJ name. When you've created your journal, click here for additional information regarding adding others to your character's friends list. ♥ Please add all of the characters, even if your character doesn't get along with them. ;P
Also, make a post to the community once you've joined, so everyone knows you exist. 8D
If you're not accepted, it's no big deal - you've probably done something wrong in your application. We'll tell you what's wrong, but generally, we're very lenient with who we let in. ;D After all, this RP is crack, and it's a laid-back one to boot. So yes. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! We won't bite
