WHOA, OKAY GUYS. CALM YOUR FARM.

I got a ridiculous amount of responses in a very short amount of time.

So we’re going to do this diplomatically.

Name:

Timezone:

Are you a roleplayer/writer?:

If ‘yes’, please specify the type of writing you do (and/or provide a sample):

Why do you think you would be a great mod for DCD:

And drop it in the SUBMIT box. I will only be accepting submissions through Submit.

I’ll leave this open for 24 hours, at which point I’ll read all the submissions and come to a conclusion. 

Thank you so much!

Dear Tumblr,

It may or may not have come to your attention that this blog hurled itself off a cliff not too long ago. 

It certainly came to mine.

The original owner of this blog is an exceptionally busy person. I spent a great deal of time tracking them down, talking to them, and eventually, I asked if I could carry on their fabulous work. Clearly, they have given me control of the blog.

So hello! I’m Mod E. In a very short amount of time, I will be actively running Daily Character Development.

I, too, am a very busy person. Which is why I would absolutely love it if anyone out there would like to take up Modship with me. I’d be looking for one or two people besides myself, with a pertinent vocabulary and understanding of grammar. It helps if you’re a roleplayer or a writer, as well!

Throw me an Ask. The sooner we have an active team of moderators, the sooner this fabulous blog can get running again.

It’s lovely to meet you all!

How will this new set of interactions and this new relationship impact on your character?
Why the hell haven&#8217;t you asked this blog to roleplay with you before?
If you have no blogs on your dashboard which you have yet to interact with (which is highly unlikely, if I do say so myself), refer to the Independent Master List and follow new blogs.

× Things to consider:
What is the nature of the threat that could move your character to betray those they love? Is it personal, or would it be detrimental to a group or society as a whole?
Would your character experience guilt or remorse in betraying those closest to them?
Does your character harbor any significant attachments to people in the first place? Do they prioritize themselves or anything else over their peers?

Are they more verbal in communicating their affections, or physical?
Do they have proximity or commitment issues? Do they express a fear of getting attached to people?

Are they eager or begrudging to start the day? Does their routine begin immediately with getting out of bed?
What is their specific thought process as they come around in the morning? Is it eclectic and wandering, or focused on the day ahead? Do they think of particular places, people, phrases, music?
Do they have a set routine which they follow, in the morning, or is it just  case of wondering and satisfying basic needs, going through the motions?

Regardless of this theoretical immunity, is your character aware of their legal limitations? Furthermore, are they respectful of them?
Would freedom to do whatever they wished without repercussions compromise their ethics and morals?
