    Hey, everyone. Right now I have everyone who asked to be involved listed as a "author" but, if I'm remembering correctly, not everyone who signed up wanted to be an author (or not just an author). So, can everyone just leave a post letting me know what part you're willing to work on for this story?

    Remember we need
    • Authors
    • Proofreaders
    • Organizers
    and if you want to help with more than one part, you can.
    If you're not on here and you want to work on this story, let me know. Right now, this is the list of users who have signed up:
    • dylan o'brien; - author
    • Emzy Stilinski - author/proofreader
    • Dixon-Darling.
    • unapalomayunaflor - author
    • ace merrill. - author
    • fairyfeller - author
    • Maleficent. - organizer
    • nearly witches.
    • Audrey T - organizer
    • charity_hope
    • XXXataktoulaXXX - author

    Hello, everyone!

    I just started a story page - right now it's blank and we'll need to fill it in eventually - so that we can get started on characters. If you're interested in being a writing and you want to start working on your character, you can. When you can, try to write up a little something on your character and you can get it added to the story's character page - that way we'll know what everyone is working on. (Once you've sent in your character blurb, you'll be added as an author to the story.)

    Question: Should authors write about their character from the POV of an author writing about a character or should it from the character's perspective - something close to the character writing a bit of an intro about themselves to the rest of the group - or should it be more like a file about the character, maybe something more akin to what you'd see in like rehab facility's files?

    I would love to be an author! As for the question I'm sure you're talking about the character page, right? I think it would be cool to have the character page like a file you would see in a rehab facility.

    Maxwell "Max" Alchemy

    The product of a witch and an immortal, Alchemy labels himself as an immortal male witch. Having lived (so far) for over a century, his personal experiences have rendered his persona distant and easily irritated with a load of sarcasm that has kept him mentally alive for years. Alchemy is being admitted into the facility for auditory hallucinations of his long dead ancestors. When these voices are heard in his head, he loses control of his magic and may or may not have accidentally burned down a police station. Depends on which detective you talk to.

    Rollin "RJ" West | 24 years old | a werewolf

    He was a beta... until he was banished from his previous pack. It was a misunderstanding with the Alpha's little sister, seeing red the Alpha didn't hesitate to banish his beta. Without a pack the beta gave free reigns to the beast within for four years, but not wanting to die the Wolf convinced Rollin to take back control. Living as an animal in the wild, he forgot how to act as a regular citizen. The only problem now... is that he doesn't remember anything whenever he shifts.


    @ Audrey T
    here is my character! :)

    Sorry I have been MIA. I haven't had time to read through the whole thread, but now that I have. If it's still open, can I be like a therapist character? I guess that person would be like a reoccurring character in the story versus a true member of it. I'd really like that part though, if it's still open.

    @ ace merrill.

    Character looks good! Just added you to the story, so you should have a request notification. Once you accept, you can go ahead and add your character.

    No problemo.

    And you can definitely be a therapist character. You can make a bio and submit it and then I'll get you added to the story.

    Organizational Post III

    Hello, everyone. A couple of things:

    Character bios

    If you're an author, please have your character bios in by the end of January 21st. Once you do, you'll be added as an author to the story. (If you need extra time, let me know so we can figure something out.) You can find a list of the current character bios submitted here and you can see a list of submitted characters on the story's page here.

    Organizational posts

    I'll try to tag all organizational posts so that everyone gets an alert when they come up. When you see one, please read it and respond, so I know everyone's getting all the information. Also, try to read all posts made in this forum and respond, so we're all up to speed and no one gets left out. (So far there's 3 organizational posts in this thread - one - two - three - if you haven't responded to them yet, please do so soon.)

    Story layout/Cover Image

    I'm going to add a pretty basic story layout, for now, but once we get the first chapter up, we'll need a permanent layout (as well as title!), so if you're interested in putting one together, please do. If possible, you can create a layout, publish it, and then let us know so we can take a look. Once everyone (who wants to) submits a layout (or some layouts), we'll vote on which one we like best.

    We'll also need a story cover image. If you have any ideas/images you want to share, we can do the same as above - get a collection of cover submissions and then we'll vote on whichever one we want.
