This is a roleplaying group for the Netflix series, The Umbrella Academy. We are currently accepting canon and original roles for multi-para / novella literate writers.
Writing - This is a multi-para to novella group. However, there is no minimum to how much you can write, just that the quality extends the quantity. Replies can be as short or as long as you and your fellow writer see fit.
Activity - The group can only last if its members are active and responsive. We do ask that you regularly have storylines with more than one other member and that you respond in a reasonable time. In addition to your storylines, you will be required one activity check a month. The activity will be given at the first of the month and should be finished by the end of the month. One skipped activity check is acceptable, two will remove you from the group. There will be an array of activities including: Drabbles, Group Storylines and Replies/Starter Summaries. No activity will be too demanding and newly accepted members will not have to do the activity check until the next month.
Original Characters - Considering the show is only two seasons worth of content, original characters are highly recommended. Consider that 43 babies were born in 1989 with special abilities. We have our academy of 7, so 36 remain. This gives you room to be creative.
Hiatus - Of course, you are allowed a hiatus for any length of time at any time. Please just message the group of when and why. If you are inactive for longer than 3 weeks without notification you will be removed from the group.
Accounts - We are open to multiple accounts as long as your one character is in good standing for at least 2 weeks. If you first role is canon, the other role will need to be an original character.
Audition - The most important part of the audition is the writing sample. Even if there are other submissions for the role, your audition can still be denied. For original characters, please flesh out your role to the best of your ability - including background and powers (if any). Results will be announced within 3 days of the submitted audition. Comment on this page that you accept the rules and post a gif of the character (or face claim) you wish to audition for.
Moderators - This group is currently accepting moderators. This won't be chosen with a simple audition - message Luther to set up a storyline, conversation, etc and express your interest.
Have fun for the love of all things holy. This should technically be rule numero uno. No one wants to be in a group that feels like a lecture hall with assigned homework. Behave how the Umbrella Academy would and play hooky once in a while.
Please submit any questions through messages to the group.
