We're dead, aren't we? ._.
He didn't know why he was here. He wasn't supposed to be here. He should have walked right by this park without stopping. No, he shouldn't have even gone home the same way as this park at all.
But he had gone home that way, he had stopped in that park, and yes, he was here.
Apparently, she wasn't. He'd thought he'd heard her voice, but maybe that was just because it was in his head so much.
Kouri didn't frown, but his big gray flattened themselves a little in disappointment.
[OOC: Check the comments for the rest of this entry, sorry for the fact that this is split into more than one part my comp at home is just so finicky with the connection, I cant make long posts so I had to break this up by commenting on my own entry *grumbles*]
Players: ritsu_research and eleganceunbound
Takes Place: In the past before episode 1 after the memory Soubi has of Ritsu teaching him about the weakness of the Zero's...this is where Agatsuma Soubi loses his ears.
( “In battles you must be elegant and alert. You must be strong and emotionless so you do not pity your opponent.” Ritsu moved over towards Soubi as he spoke, his fingers reaching out and gently stroking the tip of the soft furry ears, almost lovingly as he continued to speak. “All your senses must be tuned to your surroundings so every effect of each spell is noticed and countered.” The fingers moved away from the ears and removed the glasses from the face of the teacher, putting them down carefully on the table. “Today, we tune up the last of the senses that we haven’t touched…and we take the final step.” Ritsu walked back around the table and sat down on the large chair behind it, his hands clasping in front of him.Collapse )
For the influx of re-posts on rules and such. Trying to get rid of my personal journal from the community. Yes I realize that there is one post there and I'm too lazy to get rid of that one too but I left it there because it's going to disappear anyway. I wanted the posts that need editing to be re-posted under my character journal who is heading this community.
Modship sama bluestraggler has announced that she is willing to draw avatars for original characters according to your description. Thus we can enforce the "use avatars relating to your character rule."
Anyway...this is where you apply for an Original Character. This application will be slightly more complicated as you need to make sure your character is well rounded.
Name of your OC
Pairing name for your OC: You may join the comm as a solo sacrifice / fighter and look for a pairing later however you can't join a battle until have a pairing. If you decide to do this then you can pick a pairing name in cooperation with your other half later on and I will update the list.
Side : Are you fighting for Me (Ritsu-sensei) or Modship Sama (bluestraggler ala Nagisa) This is to make the story more fun as they are competing in the anime, why don't we compete also. That also makes the tally results and such more interesting. If one side gets too filled with applicants, I might have to ask some people to swap to the other side.
Background Story: Please provide some background story about how you were treated and why you were created. You do not need to corroborate with us but please make them IC. Ritsu will not create some Zero's and Nagisa doesn't create Zero's as smut toys thank you.
Description of your character - for the creation of your avatar
And once again all applications are screened.
Please refer to the main entry post to see which characters are still available.
All comments are screened so everyone has a fair chance and please make sure your characters are IC and you've read the rules post. I will not tolerate people who break the rules and people who don't understand this RP style.
Character you are applying for
Example of a diary entry something you would post in your diary journal. (Dear diary, this happened today)
Example of an RP entry : So we can see what style of writing you lose when you do you AIM logging. Remember this is a 3rd person log community, like fiction writing not script. Please see the examples in the rules post.
The examples can be as long or as short as you like. I will not decline your entry because you only type a coupla sentences. Everyone needs a chance to grow and learn this RP style and I'm willing to accept beginners as long as you understand how to play.
Once you've been accepted, I will contact you to get contact details and ask you to create a character journal to join the RP.
The RP will begin once we have sufficient characters to start delving into the story. Which will hopefully be quite soon.
This is an AIM-log based Livejournal community. That being said I have some rules I'm going to state.
There are no minimum posting requirements because this is supposed to be fun and not some kind of homework.
Every character is to own a character journal. Now there are some specifics about this journal. Please use avatars which relate to your character or are your character so as to not confuse people. And this is to be a diary-type livejournal. It means you have to type in character and cybering-type actions aren't allowed unless your character seems the type to do so. For example, Soubi doesn't use emoticons and Ritsuka won't type entries containing "*smiles happily*".
The journal is a place for your character to record his/her thoughts to share with the rest of the community or a place just to type about their day at school/work whatever.
That being said, comment replies to journals are just that, comment replies. You don't reply RP-script action replies.
( exampleCollapse )
The logic behind this being that character journals are typed by the character while they are on their personal computer and actions like that make them seem out of character as it is "cybering".
There are two ways of logging in this community. Character journals are strictly to act as journals thus all logs are to be posted into the community itself. And please make clear in the subject heading what kind of log you are making. Subject : Battle or Subject : Log
The first way of logging is 3rd person AIM logging. Sorry script logging isn't allowed as this community likes to get the effect of story writing/story telling. Much like a group fanfiction project. You can read the community to see the stories behind characters and then click into friends to see into their minds and get how they feel about certain situations and then see IC feedback on those thoughts from other characters. You can comment on character journals without participating in the actual RP as long as you set your comment with the Subjectline saying OOC.
( 3rd person and script logging examplesCollapse )
Now like I said there are two ways of logging. The first one is one on one logging through AIM and then the log is posted in to the community under an LJ cut. Details to be included in the post before the LJ cut are to be : Players involved, short description, episode we're up to. Original characters can be involved from wherever in the RP as long as they don't interact with the characters during actual anime scenes. Behind the scenes RP logs can be done in any way the player wants as long as it slots into the anime without disruption to the original story line.
The second way of logging is 3rd person comment style in the actual community. This is for people who want to do RP's involving more than 2 characters and it's hard to get everyone together on AIM to log it (that and chat AIM logging is slow and painful because of the character limits for each chatter.) In this case you make a post into the actual community itself.
( This is how.Collapse )
The lure of this community is that the players are able to battle each other. During the storyline, characters and original characters will be pit against each other in spell battles. The storyline battles will be played out as they are with extras. Meaning you can throw in an extra spell here or there. Spells are to be cast as they are in the anime, meaning the character declares the spell and then a short description of what happens follows. Use your imaginations, this will turn out great.
Spell battles not in the storyline are decided ultimately by a player/watcher vote to see who will win. After a battle has gone on for long enough, I'll put up a poll for the people to vote. That way the battles don't become endless and boring and everyone gets a fair chance to win.
Spell battles are all done through LJ Rping via the above format except the RP style doesn't have to be as descriptive and it's all in the name of imagination. Try to be as creative with the spells as you can. (Smut spells aren't creative, they are tasteless.)
The mod characters Ritsu and Nagisa will be posting mandatory spell battles between characters once in a while although your characters are allowed to declare spell battles between each other. I will be keeping up a tally post on wins and losses on a regular basis so please play away.
I shouldn't need to explain the story seeing as how we're starting from the beginning of the anime.
It is up to the Seimei player if we start with some backlogging of previous history or just straight at school.
But! This is to explain why everyone has journals.
Nagisa - sensei and Ritsu - sensei set up these journals for their ghters to keep tabs on each other and so they can keep tabs on their previous students/creations. I know this defeats the purpose for when the zero's run away from Nagisa but I hope to downplay that a little so that we can keep up with the battling even after the situation. (Or the Zero's can run away and join Ritsu's side >D) Anyway all that story can be ironed out as we get to it.
The other characters have LJ's because it's the new "in" thing going around and it just so happens that all the people in that area have their LJ's linked up (via some new LJ technology to meet people) thus everyone starts off already having contact with everyone else.
It is up to you whether you want to post public, private or filtered entries. Please just remember to label them.
And have fun.
Remember ANY KIND OF LOGGING WHATSOEVER is posted to the main comm and character journals are just that. Journals.
Enjoy and have fun everyone.
