Genderbent Timeline Post- Version 2
Ok, so my friends and i too a vote, and we’re currently sort of dumping everyone who hasn’t been active/communicating in the timeline. That means a LOT of people are now open in our group.
This timeline runs exactly like the basic one, until it gets to about right after edrian’s death. At that point, our timeline experienced a glitch which created a new alternia and a new earth, which are very close to eachother. That’s the story.
For plot reasons, we really need the people who died in canon first for example:
Other open characters include:
For now, the only people we will be taking will be from the a2/b1 timelines. Anyone else is not plot important at the moment and won’t be until much later.
We would appreciate it if you made a new blog for a character, and send an application with the following specifics to me right here on lovvelyladyampora :
Name: (Your name)
Age: (Please don’t smut if you’re underage, It’s not fair to your partner cause you could get them in big trouble)
Character wanted:(Include their alternate name you wish to have. six letter format please)
Rp sample: (give us your best shot. any formatting acceptable, just keep in mind grammar and characterization please)

CALL FOR ENTRY: THE 2012 WILLIAM H. JOHNSON PRIZE
APPLICATION DEADLINE: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2012 at 11:59 P.M.
The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that seeks to encourage African American artists early in their careers by offering financial grants. The Johnson Foundation awards grants to individuals who work in the following media: painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation and/or new genre.
The William H. Johnson Prize is awarded annually to an early career African American artist. For our purposes, “early career” is a flexible term that should be interpreted liberally to include artists who have finished their academic work within twelve years from the year that the prize is awarded. For example, a person who finished their studies in 2000 is eligible to apply in 2012, but not in 2013. Age is not determinative, and artists who have not earned BFAs or MFAs are still eligible so long as they have not been working as an artist for more than twelve years.
The 2012 William H. Johnson Prize is $25,000 and the winner will be announced in December 2012.
