I really want to get this show on the road, but I know some people still owe me applications and stuff so this is what I'm suggesting... I'm going to open posting starting when I've finished this.
What I want is any ficlets/roleplays/journal entries etc that involve your character prior to the start of this school year. They can be as far back as you like... I've got one I want to post for Harry when he was started teaching at Hogwarts. I also know that Alex (Prof Flitwick) wants to do a bit of arrpee with certain first years.
Make sure the posts are dated correctly, or as close as possible. I know all the players have a pretty good sense of the Potterverse timeline - I am going to produce one specfically for this game when I have the time - as I said just try to stick to 'canon' as much as possible.
Please avoid using characters that already have players in anything you write, unless you speak to the player first. Any character who is playerless atm is fair game - but remember we're not about the crack ^^. Also these posts can't be classed as open - this is all stuff that has already happened, not scenes to be played out. If you want to arrpee scenes between specific characters, such as family members, feel free, just make sure the people involved know the general 'plot' of the scene.
This will give you a chance to flex your creative muscles, let the other players into your character's... well, character, and give people who still want to apply a chance to. We're still looking for a James, so if you know anyone who would be interested, or only have one character and would like a second think about it. After a week of this I'll make an introductory 'On Platform 9 3/4' post and we can start arrpeeing for real.
Any questions, cause I think the pain has made this come across a little confusing, just e-mail me (email@example.com).
