New applicant? READ THIS FIRST!

How to apply:
o1. Please refer back to the rules to make sure everything's in check.
o2. If your application is too big to put in one comment, keep it threaded with the parts in the subject line (ie, 1/3, 2/3, 3/3). This makes it easier for us to keep track of. :)
o3. Make sure your grammar and spelling is correct! if u typ lik this and it's not IC, our heart goes out to you but we don't want you here. Sorry.
o4. Please do not start fights with us if your application is declined or we request revisions. More often than not we'll be making suggestions for revisions before rejecting an app outright, so you will have another chance to re-apply and we will give you a full week to do so. If we don't hear back from you in that time, then we'll mark the application as closed. Being an asshole to us over a declined app isn't going to make us want you in our game and in fact set off rather large alarm bells.
o5. APPLICATIONS MUST BE YOUR OWN WORK! Plagiarized apps will not only result in your application being declined, but you will be permanently banned from applying for future characters. If an existing player is caught submitting a plagiarized app, he or she will be removed from the game because we cannot trust the originality of their writing. In summary: Don't copy/paste from a wiki, you'll look like an ass.
o6. (Optional, but strongly recommended) Run your character through a Mary Sue litmus test or otherwise take steps to ensure that the character you're applying for won't be considered a Mary Sue. Don't know what a Mary Sue is? Click here as well as a list of common Mary Sue traits. If your character has many of these traits and characteristics, you may want to revise your concept to make him/her more realistic and enjoyable to interact with, and therefore have a better chance at getting approved.

That having been said, on to the apps!


For original characters:
Name:
Species: If something other than human. If human, just clip this part from your app.
Homeworld: Where did they come from? What was it like? (If your OC is from a canon series, please be careful: We will not accept applications for characters who are connected to any canon characters in any way, shape, or form. In other words: No, you cannot be Harry Potter's sister with bicolored hair. A character who simply lives in that setting -- IE, Random Faceless Hogwarts Student #501b, a WoW character, or Generic Na'vi Villager, given a backstory and personality of course.)
Original game: If applicable. If you're adapting a character previously played at another game, mention it here. If not, remove this line from your app.
Personality: How are they like in most social situations? Are they homebodies or explorers? What sets them off? What are their quirks? Be as detailed as you like here. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT SECTION OF THE APP.
History: Why is your character the way he/she is? What was their life like growing up? What was it like before they fell asleep?
Appearance: What do they look like? (A link to a drawing is fine if you have one. It MUST BE original work and not somebody else's character you found on Deviantart you decided to take for character art, but something you've drawn yourself or commissioned somebody else to draw is okay as long as it's your original character.)
Any special abilities or powers? If so, please list them. Be thorough, explain limits and weaknesses.
Sample post: Click here for prompts! If you've already done threads with this character, linking to those is fine. Just show us you have the voice of the character down.
OOC contact info: AIM address, OOC journal, email address, and so on; how can we reach you out of game?

Species: If something other than human. If human, clip this part from your app.
Series:
Original game: If applicable. If you're adapting a character previously played at another game, mention it here. If not, remove this line from your app.
Backstory: A summary of their lives thus far before falling asleep. Please refrain from sperging out and writing a massive essay about every minute detail of the series, a summary is fine.
Major turning point: In other words: How is this character different from canon? What are the major differences? Be detailed but not convoluted.
Personality: How are they like in most social situations? Are they homebodies or explorers? What sets them off? What are their quirks? Be as detailed as you like here. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT SECTION OF THE APP.
Appearance: What do they look like? Links to artwork is fine.
Any special abilities or powers? If so, please list them. Include hard limits and weaknesses.

If canon characters start to outnumber original characters by a huge margin, we will temporarily close apps on canon characters until the OC population gets back up before reopening them. It's not because we don't like you, but OCs need more love too.

In the future we may (not guaranteed) allow a limited number of non-AU canon apps every app period (if the game actually gets big enough to require app periods XD), but right now it's OCs, previously played, and AUs only and stay that way until we become more established.

PLEASE POST ALL APPLICATIONS AS A COMMENT TO THIS POST! THANK YOU!
