TEMPUS FUGIT

original-ish idea by @jolieenrose on 11|24|16 inspired by timeless, six of crows, ocean's trilogy, and probably a bunch of other time traveling shows/movies that i'm too lazy to name - - - - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀"There must be some kind of way outta here, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Said the joker to the thief. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀There's too much confusion, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I can't get no relief." - - - - - ☆ BACKGROUND ☆ Since the dawn of time, a secret society of time travelers ("jumpers" as they refer to themselves) known as The Ministry have protected the universe from those who've used the power of time traveling for their own selfish needs. Unbeknownst to the regular world, The Ministry travels from era to era protecting the people from changes in their fates and the fate of the universe. Members of the Ministry come from different walks of life, different time periods, different lands, and practically different worlds. They've left their families, their friends, and their life behind all in sacrifice to protect the past, the present, and the future of the universe from those who wish to rewrite the course of time. They do not know why they were chosen. They do not know who can be trusted. But they do know the one rule they all must follow: Do not disrupt the timelines. For even a minor change in the universe could very well mean erasing your entire existence.

Read all the information I post regarding the plot/story/characters. 2. If you have a question about the plot, please please please ask me! I'm more than happy to explain things further--this whole plot is always evolving and I'm sure I have a few holes, so let me know if things need to be explained more clearly. 3. General rp rules apply. I don't think I need to explain this. 4. I provide character "shells." You create the rest! 5. Please try to stay active by writing STORIES (I know, I'm guilty of posting a million sets without stories too, but let's try to keep that to a minimum, yes?) 5.

Find the character you want to audition for in the collection posted above. There are both male and female characters. However, if there's a character you really like who you want to be of the opposite gender, PM me and maybe we can work something out. 2. Fill out the following form. I've provided the basic information for the character, so it's up to you to create the rest. Also, I've provided each character's given name, but you're more than welcome to give them aliases and "new" names that they go by since joining the Ministry. 3. You can choose the model, but please stick to high fashion only (I can make exceptions for male characters, however). Secondary characters, of course, can be portrayed by anyone. 4. Audition stories will be required. Mostly so I can gauge how you'll write the character and also to see that you're serious about staying active in the rp. It doesn't have to be very long. Heck, I'll take 2 paragraphs if you need to. 5. Finally, I'm taking suggestions for time periods you would like to see visited, so make sure to give me one when you finish your audition. Please include a location, too. These may end up being events later ;) 5. Tag me when you've completed your audition and submit it to the contest if there is one. 6. Try to keep your character's past restricted to 1 time period (ie, they can't be from the 1400's and then live centuries in 1700's, 1880's, 1920's, etc because it's very draining on jumpers to stay in another time period for too long). They CAN, however, have lived in the present for a while now. NAME, age (feel free to include their alias here, too, if you want them to have one) [Time Period/Area they are from] (quote) Personality; Bio; Faceclaim; [be sure to give me 2 other options as well] Taken by; @.username Likes; Dislikes; Fears; Job; [can be from their previous life or their current job at the Ministry or both] Family; Style; [can be current style or past style or both] [OPTIONAL] Collection; Wardrobe; Storyboard; Moodboard; Headcanon/Facts; Playlist; Social Media; Top 3 (other than your 1st choice, please include models too): 1. 2. 3. [STORY] [What time period/location would you like to see visited?] - - - - - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀"Outside in the cold distance, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀A wildcat did growl. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Two riders were approaching, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀And the wind began to howl."

[JANUARY 15TH] **MANDATORY** ALEXANDRIA, 48 B.C. In the early hours of yesterday morning, the Ministry's very own Sidra made the discovery of a key element that could possibly stop the rebel jumpers from messing with the timelines. It exists in the form of an ancient scroll detailing the history of the first jumper and the lost secrets of time traveling. The bad news? The scroll was located in the Library of Alexandria and is all but lost now...until the jumpers decide to visit the Library before it is burned to the ground in order to save the scroll. Eva seems apprehensive about this particular scroll, but she's agreed nonetheless--and has made it very clear NOT to mess with the past, especially at such a historically tragic event like this. Also, thank you to everyone who's published their January 5th stories! I'm so in love with them and how well you've written these characters and really given them life and amazing, unique personalities <3 To those of you who've yet to write stories or even publish sets...https://68.media.tumblr.com/c0f5da36753c4772d7472397f13b6415/tumblr_inline_of54vbnS9B1rqz45z_540.gif I kid, I kid ;) I understand how life gets in the way and I know sometimes inspiration is hard to come by, but even if you have write a short little 2-paragraph story to stay active, that's fine. I'd appreciate it 0:)
