Fandom Character Applications:
Original Character Applications - we ask that you be AS DETAILED AS POSSIBLE.
Clarification re: what we're looking for in samples.
Network: Your network sample entry should be made as if your character were posting to a public network, such as Livejournal. It does not have to be their first post (ie, "OMG WHERE AM I?!"), but it does have to show that the character is perfectly aware of the fact that this is something that other people are likely to see. Please avoid excessive description in [action tags] here, as one would get in video posts - we're looking for your character's voice, the one they use for talking to others. Save the internal monologues for the third person sample.
Third Person: 300 word minimum. This is the place to show your character's inner thoughts. Give us a nice third person narrative of your character doing something, plus how they feel about it. This doesn't have to be blatant "this is what my character is thinking, designated by italics!" but should rather show your character's self via their actions and interactions with their environment.
To clarify, when posting your application, feel free to post as many comments as necessary. All comments are screened, so just continue to post new comments, and don't worry about threads. We'll still see everything you post.
Please note that applications are usually processed once a week (usually Saturday, but not always), and it takes three mods to do so, so answers typically are sent out by Tuesday. We apologize for any delay which may result, as the mods are not guaranteed to be on the same schedule.
