Name / Username:heyyoitsmj
Character You're Applying For:Meng
Sample of a Journal Entry (reflective in character):I used to think I had my entire life planned out. I would learn from Aunt Wu, marry a man with big ears, possibly have children, and take over as fortune-teller when Aunt Wu passed on. These were the main points to my future life. Everything else, I figured, would come in between.
I never used to think about the specifics, the little details. Aunt Wu was teaching me to see the details of everyone else's lives already; I had no time to go over my own.
Then the Avatar came to town, and I became obsessed with details.
The Avatar's name rhymed with mine. He was only a little older than me. He wore bright colors. I loved pink. And most importantly, he had big ears.
I overlooked the biggest and most important detail, the Water Tribe girl. Ugh. She was just so . . . perfect. The kind of girl any boy would go after.
I was the little fortune-teller's assistant. Who do you think he would choose?
So the Avatar left. I went back to my life plan. I tried to forget the boy with the big ears and the Water Tribe girl, who had so cleverly messed with two of my five main points. I tried to focus on only the details of other's lives.
And then the war ended. Thanks to the big-eared Avatar, and according to the rumors, the Water Tribe girl and her brother.
The worst detail was that they were touring. They were going around the world yet again, checking up on the places war had crushed, in between important meetings with royalty and officials. Aunt Wu had instantly predicted they'd come here, to everyone's delight. The Avatar had saved our whole village, after all.
For once I wish Aunt Wu would be wrong. I hate going into details.
Sample of a RP Entry (in character, third person):Meng had always hated her hair. She had tried everything from expensive shampoos to not washing it at all to cutting it short, but it refused to do anything but stick up like a mooselion's antlers from the sides of her head.
Aunt Wu wasn't very helpful about it, either.
"Darling, you have the heart of a lion turtle and a spirit's charm," she'd say. "With all that good inside you, what does it matter what your hair looks like?"
And then the discussion would end, and they would go back to the fortune-telling lesson.
Meng liked learning from Aunt Wu. Learning to read palms and decipher the future from smoke was much more interesting than studying math or the war.
The war was all anybody talked about these days. Meng figured that since it was over, it was over, and it still shouldn't be a thing of gossip. The war had never even come to their sleepy village.
But the Avatar had. So when people talked about the village, they talked about the Avatar, and when they talked about the Avatar, and they talked about the war.
Even worse, Aunt Wu talked about the war.
"Now that the war's over, Meng," she'd start, "You can go places. Travel. Ba Sing Se is lovely, I hear. And they have an excellent university."
"I like Makapu," Meng would state firmly. "I will meet my husband here, and become a fortune-teller." Aunt Wu would always sigh. Usually she would go back to the lesson, but one time she replied back.
"Meng, sometimes you need to change the future, or you will never have one," she said quietly.
Meng had stared at her, wide-eyed. "Don't you . . . don't you want me to be a fortune-teller?" she said alarmed.
Aunt Wu at once brushed away her serious tone and took Meng's face in her hands.
"Darling, I want you to be happy! And if you want to read the future, so be it!" She tried to smile reassuringly, but to Meng it looked sad. She patted her cheek fondly.
"But Meng, you must not let opportunities pass. Destiny is like hair, in a way. A fortune-teller knows that destiny cannot be planned or plotted, but with every decision it is shaped." And with that, they went back to the lesson.
The war was supposed to be over, but Meng felt like her world just started falling apart.

Why do you want to join atla_aftermath?:Well, now with the show over, we have to let our minds wander somewhere! Plus, I love to write and this seems like a lot of fun!

Welcome! You've been accepted as Meng! 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 Meng, 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! Just real quick, how exactly do you want me to make Meng's journal, and I read something about an AIM sn?
2nd-Sep-2008 07:37 pm (UTC) - Re: Meng application
For an AIM screenname, you just have to go to www.aim.com and make a new screenname that way for her so you can participate in the weekly chats (when they get going)... for her journal, you're going to have to create one (like you did with the one you're using now) and fashion it to resemble a journal as if Meng owned one herself.

Like so: http://likesbigears.livejournal.com/ ??

And how do I get all this information to the heads of the community?
2nd-Sep-2008 08:27 pm (UTC) - Re: Meng application
Basically by following the instructions I gave you will let us know.

And, for the record, don't add my personal journal, add my roleplaying journal (they're all located in the userinfo of the comm).
