hello there...i am here to speak on behalf of an RP that tobuchan,myself, and a few others have been arranging. we need more characters,and we will be holding auditions for anyone interested in joining this RP.
okay, now, to pre-empt the flood of ZOMG!!!!11 posts...i am laying down some groundrules before i even get started... the RP in question here is a literate, very intense, sub-based, post-series, journal atmosphere roleplay! allow me to reiterate on LITERATE.
this means that you are pre-disqualified if you:
a.) are strictly an [AS] viewer
b.) cannot type in full sentences with proper english usage
c.) cannot make a commitment to this RP...on a geeky high-school D&D kind of level
d.) are only interested in playing Roze or some OC with the sole motivation of wedding/bedding/etc Edward, Roy, or any other canon character
PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING *ANY* ORIGINAL CHARACTERS AT THIS TIME! NONE! ZERO! DO NOT EVEN ASK! YOU WILL BE IGNORED AND POSSIBLY SHOT! BY HAWKEYE! AND HAWKEYE NEVER MISSES!
if you do not fit any of the above restrictions...congratulations on making it this far. but wait, there's more.
this story will be taking place three years after the final episode of hagaren. that would be episode 51... If you have not seen this episode, refer to the list above and re-evaluate. since the movie has not been released yet and no one has seen it or all subtleties thereof, we are basically holding this storyline as if the movie is not happening/has not happened yet.
in order to even be considered for entry into this RP, you will need to submit an application--yes, you read me--to either Tobu Ishi or myself, for consideration. in this application, you must include the name of the character you wish to play (a list will be provided below of characters open for audition), as well as personal bio information.
yes, yes, i know, if we aren't accepting OC's, that means that they are canon characters... so, duh, why do you have to write up a bio? we all KNOW them already...right?
*smakk* WRONG! don't be a lazy-ass! we're doing this to weed out the lazy-asses. we want a full bio, including history [to the best of your knowledge or--if you're feeling brave--some speculation], and an in-depth personality analysis. we want you to get into the character's head. show us you have the dedication and perseverence to do that.
also, being that three years have passed since the end of the series, we want to know what your character has been doing in those three years. IN DETAIL! we're looking for those of you who got off on the essays you had to write in senior english, folks... the ones who swear by the thesaurus and pledge on the bible of the dictionary. we want you to wow us with your application...
...we're elitist snob RPers. impress us. XD
also, the RP will be starting out a tad slow... so even if you are accepted to join us, chances are your character may have to wait to jump in. and when you DO come in, for god's sake make it for a good reason... none of this HERE I AM WHY ISN'T N E BODY REPLYING?!! crap. tobuchan and i are the GM's, guys...our word is law.
the rewards for all this hoop-jumping? an RP in which you will never have to deal with n00bs, idiots, godplayers, or mary sues. an RP free of OMGWTF?!??!!!11 and one-line dialogue. an RP that reads like a good piece of fanfiction instead of a bad AIM conversation with your 10-year-old cousin. in the end, all *you* have to do, is know the characters, and be able to write english fluently and properly.
we don't think that's too much to ask...
setting: amestris, three years after the close of the TV series
basis: Edward finds himself in the ruins beneath Central City, three years after the events that took place at the end of the TV anime series. he then goes on a journey to head back to his old home town of Resembool, wherein he must deal with the faces of many changes that took place while he was away...some of which he will have a hard time adjusting to... and this journey is only the beginning of the story...
characters CLOSED FOR AUDITION:
do NOT apply for these characters!!
all other characters who were alive at the end of episode 51 are up for grabs.
so good luck! you can email your applications to myself, hagane_no_tokage: firstname.lastname@example.org or Tobu Ishi: email@example.com. we hope to hear from some of you soon! XD
Update (17Sep05): the roles of Fuery and Sciezska have been filled. also, we have been having a problem with the GreatestJournal community we've been archiving on...we're missing some chapters and comments that have mysteriously vanished. if anyone happens to have chapter 2, part 4, or chapter 3, part 1 saved anywhere, we will give you cookies. if you can help, please tell us here! thank you!!
and as always, we are open to secondary characters or cameo appearances, so if there is someone you've got your eye on who hasn't already been spoken for, don't hesitate to send us an email!.
