This is an Alternate Universe rp, anything after Tallahassee is different.some flashback stories are the same but the ways some characters arrived to the town and some storybrooke events veer from canon.
1. You must do this. not only can it be fun but its good character development too, Answer in CHARACTER, these are for them not YOU to answer.
2. if you have more then one character you CAN choose which you want to receive questions to, you can also choose both, what ever you want.
3. TMI stops at midnight where ever you are, you can not receive any asks after that time
but if you are away from your computer most of the day then you are allowed answer those asks after TMI Tuesday is over.
4. You MUST answer what they send you, its called TMI Tuesday, they are allowed ask you ANYTHING.
5. Don’t just wait around for questions, you can ask others questions too whether in character or anon.

Throughout a story there will be moments where the central character will do things that are interesting, exciting, scary or whatever. These kinds of scenes where key events occur are what you build towards, and their aftermath will provide the momentum/motivation to keep the reader turning pages to get to the next one, and the one after that.

But even though the chase, the rescue, the attack on the enemy base, will be an entertaining set-piece, there is another, equally important, part of this moment: the decision to do it.

Every big scene will be preceded by the character having to choose to engage with whatever scenario they’re faced with. This choice is incredibly important, both to the character and to the reader.

Anonymous asked writing-questions-answered:

How does character development work with characters who have lived long lives and have already gone through many experiences? What are some ways to further develop them when they’re over 100 years old?

I think that no matter how old you are, no matter how wise and experienced, there is always going to be room for things to effect you so profoundly that it changes you somehow. Even someone who is over a hundred can learn to see things from a new perspective, change an opinion, confront a fear, or stand up for something they believe in. Also, new things pop-up in the world every day, whether it be some sort of new technology, a shocking world event, or just a new spin on something that’s been around for awhile. Things that younger generations may take for granted, like iPads, special effects in movies, and skyping—can be mind-blowing for someone who has been around since before telephones and cars were commonplace. So, you can develop the character by exposing them to things like this, which gives them the opportunity to talk about old experiences while comparing them to the new experiences, which can be quite profound for both the character and any younger characters they are sharing with.

If no, then perhaps that character isn’t right for you, and that’s okay. Sometimes we make misjudgments when taking on characters that we are playing, and find ourselves stuck with muses we have little or no passion for. The result is half-assed writing, low activity and roleplaying seeming more like a chore than something to be enjoyed. I, myself, have found myself in this situation in the past, and as a result have asked myself - do I really want to play this character? Is there another character I might have a better connection to? 


Sometimes we feel like we have to keep playing a character because we are afraid that people will be disappointed in us if we step down. Such is not the case. In fact, by holding onto a character you don’t particularly connect with, you’re causing more frustration in the group by not doing what is required of you and writing at a substandard. 

So, what are the solutions? Well, if you are feeling this way, then perhaps you need to ask yourself - is there somebody else who might do this role more justice? Is there another character that I would be more interested in taking on? In this situation you should always come to an admin to discuss what options are there for you. No one is going to be angry with you - in fact we want people to be happy in this group, and in effect want you all to feel like you can be honest with us.
