[ application ]

Applications are always open.

Applications should be emailed to laststretchmods@gmail.com with the character's name in the title of the email, with the app either pasted into the body of the email or as an attachment.

The only important rules we have regarding applications:

- There is a limit to two characters per person. For now.

- Please remember that this roleplay is based in modern-day Tokyo, Japan.

- If you're having trouble deciding on a character, here's a list of needed/requested characters. There's also a reservations post here.

- For more information head on over to faq and rules.


Name: {real, alias, or nickname}
Username: (a real journal is required here}
Age: {your age- the real one, please}
AIM Screename: {required}
Past RP Experience: {you can use any example here. a snip from past logs or links to other communities you've been in. anything that shows us you've roleplayed before}

Character's Name:
Character's Age:
Character's Model: {whom you wish to portray your character; also known as your PB. please supply name and a sample image}
Year in School: {freshman, sophomore, junior, senior. if character is not in college, what are they doing that keeps them in the surrounding area?}
Major / Minor: {if applicable; if your character hasn't decided, say so} [see below]*
Clubs / Activities / Job?: [see below]*

Background History: {minimum 300 words - nothing is truly 'canon' in an alternate universe setting such as this. so feel free to go wild and use your imagination to it's fullest capability! creativity is very important here. if you plan on playing a character that depends on another for some aspects of plot [ex: Hyuuga / Zabuza-Haku / Orochimaru-Kabuto / Madara-Tobi-Izuna] do not write them in unless the character exists already in the community and you have planned something out with them. with that in mind, keep mentioning of another character in your application down to a minimum. your application is all about your numero uno character and that is the one we want to see the most out of.}

Personality/Likes & Dislikes: {minimum 300 words - there's bound to be quite a bit about your character that makes them a special snowflake. you have your chance to tell us about it right here. what are their talents or aspirations? details and more details, please. what makes them who they are and why? describe their personality to a tee. paint a picture with your summary and assume that you are the only one who knows everything about this character.}

Writing Sample: {minimum 300 words each - our requirement is for you to write both a first and third person sample in order to show your grasp on the character in the two formats that dominate the community. prompts are optional as they are only there to help aid you with the writing examples. feel free to be as imaginative as possible.}

- Interview
- Out past curfew
- This one time at ___ camp...
- First day of class / work / etc,.

Any Questions:


Copy this:


*Any and all actual college majors and club/sports can be found here.

Note: Both mods need to approve an application before it's accepted. We apologize beforehand if we do not do this in a swift manner, but we will get to your application as quickly as possible. Whether that be the same day it was sent in or a small handful afterward it will be done. Promise. ♥
[ faq ]

*Dorm rooms? - Located just a little distanced from the school sits the dorms. Not the only *dorms around but they are un-named and really just there. You don't need to have a dorm as your character can live alone if they so wish to. If you wish to have your characters room together, go ahead. Dorms will be as fallows:

Dorm A - All girls
Dorm B - All boys
Dorm C - Co-ed

*Can the teachers give assignments? - If your character is a professor you can post assignments on the bulletin board and if you're an English professor, those taking any English courses will have to complete it. It is up to the player if they really want to do the assignment but it makes for good fun to see what you can come up with. Also, mingling via teacherxteacher is encouraged.

Teachers have lives as well, do they not?

*What goes where?
-Third person RPing, AKA "logging" goes in the main community with the following:

-Journals are for first person RPing, and they act as a regular online journal, but it is for your character.

-The bulletin board is like a journal, but it's just something where anything can be posted. Memes, homework assignments, or advertisements for clubs or work, can go there. Also included are lovely anonymous insults and the like. Young adults have every right to be just as immature as teenagers after all.

*Where is this school located? What is it like in the surrounding area?

-This roleplay is based in modern-day Japan. As is expected in most places, the city is busy and full of noise. Just outside the towering buildings though lies the college and shops that are favored by the students for those days where you don't want to go too far. But the school is just close enough for those that DO live in the downtown area.

There are shady areas of course, as many places have. But everything is there in a compact package.

Feel free to ask questions, as I'm sure there is plenty more some people would like covered.


[ rules ]

1. Respect the other members; we're aiming to keep a fun and friendly environment. If there are drama issues OOC, do not let it influence IC. If the situation becomes too big and nasty that it's out of your hands, please contact a mod. We will help as well as we can to clear the issue. Again, no drama is allowed here outside of IC Character conflict.

2. Slash, femmeslash, and het are all welcome here (threesomes, too)--rating can range from G to PG-13 without warnings. R and NC-17 posts should be labeled with warnings, and f-locked. Do NOT flag any entries on the community.

3. Please stay IC in the main community. We take 'in character' very seriously. There is an OOC community for any side conversations you may want to have.

4. God modding is a no. As is unwanted [read: negative] criticism on how someone plays their character [flaming].

5. STAY ACTIVE. This is self-explanatory. There is a hiatus post for if you are unable to manage this over a certain period of time. Two weeks is the maximum hiatus time so if you must for any longer than that then speak to a mod or please drop.

Also, if you know that you will not be active in the community please do not bother applying. It's a hassle to the mods to constantly correct information on your behalf.

6. If you are ever to want to leave the community, make a clear post on the OOC community after replying to the hiatus/dropping post and completing the actions listed there.

7. You are required to have a PB. This means: You need to have a real life model to represent your character. With the taken characters is a list of the ones already in use. No, you cannot have the same PB as another player. If a model is hard to find for your chosen character, a mod can assist you.

Good places to look for a PB model:

8. Pay attention to your spelling and grammar. If you're showing a pattern of being incapable of writing coherently after an initial warning, we will ask you to step down from your character.

9. Memes. If a character posts a meme, do not post your result in your own journal. If you want your character to interact due to the other player's results, reply to their post, and your result will be shared that way. This is only to prevent f-list spamming, but is very important.

There is an exception to this rule, which is memes that honestly have to do with the characterization of your character such as "Ask me a question about my character and I'll respond with a small essay.", or a few others.

Also, every so often, a mod will put up a "HOWS MY DRIVING" post for everyone to mingle in.

10. Those of you that wish to apply as characters not yet in college are free to do so. But they will not be included in college activities. You are free, though, to go about and set up a 'history' of some sort with the other characters due to the respects of the player.

11. You must be at least 17 years of age in order to apply. No minors are allowed in the game! While researching international law, seventeen appeared to be the most common age for a legal adult. So the minimum age allowed in the RP is officially seventeen.

12.. No sharing of personal journal amongst non-players! This rule is actually very serious. Your personal journal is meant for you and you alone. Sharing it means allowing someone outside the community to see things they have no permission to view.

13.. You must have AIM. This is the most commonly used client that players use in the community. It will ensure contact with everyone as well as being a sure and easier way for moderators and players to contact you.

14. Please put large or NWS images under a friend's cut! Be considerate of the other players' friends list!

15. If you are making a post in the IC main community, please tag your entries! They'll be better to keep track of in the future.

16. This IS a logging community. Storyline depends on that. Unless you're going to constantly thread in your characters journal? Then knowing logs are not entirely required but appreciated is in your best interest.

17 Have fun! The most important rule! ♥
