Welcome to another role-play of Prince Of Tennis! This one is called "Double Fault"! Irasshaimase!
Situation: The 3rd years have graduated and have moved on to high school. You may think that this put a shock on most schools because they have pretty must lost a very valuable asset to their teams. But this isn't to be. With fresh new recruits from being club members to being regulars, we'll never know what happens! Most teams will require new captains and of course, new team players. After the spring break before the new school year started, the teams have come up with this roster after their own respective intra-school tournaments to pick their regulars:
Hyoutei Gakuen: - Hiyoshi Wakashi - buchou - Ohtori Choutarou - (oneshot_soul) - ???? (reserved) - **Yukimura Kazuto** - (fubukikazuto) - **Ashiwara Keisuke** - (thursdayschild_) - **Kouboshi Fuyuha** - (fuyuha) - **Taoka Shozo** - (misuta_kuriipi) - **Tsuzuki Ryou** - (dragon_tsuzuki) (most Hyoutei players have agreed to make Kabaji an NPC. He will still be a regular, but he will be NPC'd by any Hyoutei players as needed)
Other characters: Ryuuzaki Sumire Ryuuzaki Sakuno Osakada Tomoka Katou Kachirou Mizuno Katsuo Horio Satoshi Inoue Mamoru Shiba Saori Banda Mikiya Sakaki Tarou Echizen Nanjirou - (not_nanjiroh) Tachibana An
***Please be advised that this is not a full character listing. More characters will be added (canon) when we receive more information.***
Characters in asterisks (**xxx**) are created characters.
If you'd like us to reserve a character for you, please talk to one of the mods. Remember though that we will not hold characters for more than 14 days. On the 15th day, if the reserved character isn't claimed or no appy has been submitted for it, it will be unreserved and be made available to other RPers.
I won't post out the rules for RPing. They should be self-explanatory and we'll trust that you know what they are. Basic rules of this RP though: don't take a char that's not yours, respect each other, and have fun! ^_^
This is probably the only PoT RP that allows created characters. And the obvious reason why we have allowed this is because over half of the PoT boys are 3rd years and since they have graduated, this opens a lot of new spots for the regulars for every team. If you also hadn't noticed, Rikkai has openings for 6 people (this also includes fukubuchou) in their regular line-up because Kirihara Akaya is the only 2nd year student there. I do realize that Rikkai is a school who has some of the best tennis players around because of their record, but that doesn't mean you can bring in a Mary Sue in there. Even Rikkai has their limitations to their players. Look at Sanada who was deemed to be the emperor. A 3rd year with little loss records, beat by a 1st year ace. Point? No Mary Sues/Gary Stu's/whatever you wanna call it. If anyone feels that someone has a Mary Sue/Gary Stu in their application, you will be asked to talk to the mods.
Also, if you do not agree to the line-up that is on here, then you are more than welcome to play another character. The mods and I have agreed that these are the best line-ups taking a lot of things into consideration. (i.e. behavior, social status, etc.) In addition, this lessens the flexibility for RPers a little bit so that they have something to work off of. Talk to the mods if you have any questions or concerns. Just remember that this isn't written in stone, as it all depends on what happens in the story.
As expected, the canon characters go through a shorter application process as the created characters do. All character applications go to the OOC community (zero_fault). You must be approved by 1 mod for canon characters, and two mods for created characters.
All applicants must fill-out the following:
Name: (a name you go by) Age: (We prefer that you're at least 15 to join) Personal LJ: (your LJ) Primary AIM s/n: Tell us a bit about your RP experience: How did you hear about double_fault?:
If you want a Canon Character, fill out this section:
Character you'd like: Age (a year after the manga/anime started): School/Team: Positions you'd like your character to play and why: (D2, D1, S3, S2, S1)
If you have a created character, complete the following:
Name of your character: (remember, this takes place in Japan. Your character MUST have a Japanese name unless they have some sort of history to go by it. Try not to make the history be lengthy) Age: Height & Weight: Blood Type: Left or Right: School and Grade: Play Style: Any signature move: Brief History about your character: (again, it's a brief history, you do not have to make it lengthy)
Also all applicants must submit a sample writing with their character in whatever scenario they wish. This is just to see how you write, and if you 'can' write.
Again, please post your application on the OOC board, zero_fault. Alternatively, you may e-mail your application to the mods. Just be sure you e-mail it to every address listed: IshidaTakeru[at]aol.com -- kaneda.ichirou[at]gmail.com
To join, simply fill out the correct sections of the appy, join the OOC community, and post it. Your application should be answered, at the very latest, in the next 48 hours. Once approved, make a journal for your character and join this community, as well as the OOC community so that you may keep up with what's going on with the other characters, as well as announcements, and logs. Journal entries must be written in 1st person point of view while logs are written in story format, 3rd person point of view. Logs will be posted here, double_fault
The mods may take as many characters as they like. Though for the purposes of the RP, there are times that they may need to take on as many as 4. But for now, everyone's limit is 3. This rule may change at any given moment. But for now, you must have an original character before you create your own character for submission. Let's see if we can fill up these original characters first befor we start making up new ones. By doing that, we're avoiding havoc.
Also, situations in this RP may include het, yaoi, yuri, and shota. If you are bothered with one or any of the aforementioned concepts, then this RP is most definitely not for you. You have been warned.
Go bug the mods if you have any questions, problems, concerns, etc. Don't worry. We won't bite.
Stalkers are also okay. You fanboys/fangirls may hit up the journals of these hot young ass boys if you'd like. And if they have an AIM s/n listed, you may also IM them provided that the person you're talking to knows that you're talking to the character and not the mun.
