Name / Username: Araine/araine
Age: Seventeen
Character You're Applying For: Piandao
Sample of a Journal Entry (reflective in character):
My once-student Sokka has asked us to write frequent journals, and I believe the idea is a good one, now that we are at peace. That boy really is too innovative for his own good.

I must say that it was an honor to participate in one of the great legends of our time. To strive against the evils of this world, and test the strength of my blade against my enemies. To finally stand up for ideals I, and others, believe in.

Still, the time now is for peace. For enjoying relaxing tea - if you are General Iroh - or even some cool sake with a hint of lemon. For comrades to go their separate ways, and for new friends to be made. A time to practice the time-honored traditions of our people. A time for harmony.

A time to rebuild.

The best of luck to the new Fire Lord, and all of the companions of the Avatar.

Perhaps I should consider taking another student. If only they weren’t incessantly lacking in humility.

Sample of a RP Entry (in character, third person):
It was quiet in the early morning, the jungle mist giving the air of the estate a mystical quality. Living alone had its drawbacks sometimes, but it also came with plenty of advantages.

Piandao took a deep, steadying breath and dabbed the well-worn brush into the black ink. In a moment, his sharp eyes took in the smooth white surface of the rice paper - a thousand possibilities rested with this paper. He could paint any character there - the possibilities were almost limitless, endless hidden potential for beauty.

Ahh, metaphors for life and swordsmanship. Because to Piandao, they were one and the same - a swordsman must be skilled not only in his craft, but in life as well.

Confidently, the swords-master raised his brush and brought it down onto the paper.

Strokes - across, across, down. Sixteen in all, patterned after his breathing. The black marks stark against the white paper - drying quickly, permanent on the white paper.

Harmony.

Piandao smiled.

He lifted the brush a second time, and - using less ink than before - quickly added a small, circular flower motif in the lower right-hand corner. A simplified version of what one might see on a Pai Sho tile.

Perfect.

The swords-master stood to let his calligraphy dry, in order to attend to the light breakfast his butler had left for him.

Insert Word Here: boomerang
Why do you want to join atla_aftermath?: I’ve done lots of RP on other sites, but never on LJ before, and I really wanted to try at least once. This looks really interesting, and I love post-finale Avatar stuff anyways, so it sounded perfect!

Welcome! You've been accepted as Piandao ! The first thing you need to do (if you haven't already done so) is join this community, atla_aftermath, as well as atla_dailylog. Then, you'll need to create a journal for Piandao , which you'll join (again) the two communities so everything can be organized. When that's settled, watch out for for friendslocked posts concerning development of the RP!

Awesome.

Umm, about the AIM screenname, is it alright if I have just one for both Piandao and On-Ji? Simply because it would be more convenient that way.

Yeah, sure, since it'd be pretty impossible to keep up with the insanity otherwise. Whatever seems to fit them both best! I'd say just switch the color of your text when in chats or whatever so no one will get confused as to who you're speaking as.
