What’s the Plot?
This Roleplay will be following the Plot of the series ‘Heroes.’
This means that we’ll be going episode by episode, and your characters will follow the events that happen in the ‘Heroes,’ episodes. Of course, you don’t have to write all of them –only the significant events, and you’re free to write anything that could happen ‘behind the scenes,’ as long as it stays canon. This being said, any ‘smut’ posts must be under read mores, and only done between when it’s very clear that the two characters have a sexual relationship.
This Role Play is basically going to be Heroes written novel style, or roleplay style as it were; As such, the only ‘ships,’ available will be those defined by the series, and none other. There can be UST and the like, but nothing can happen that is not canon.
We will be moving Episode (chapter) by episode. The main blog will tell you which chapter/episode we’re on, as long as every party involved in the Heroes RP has written about their significant even for the episode/chapter, we’re going to move on. You’re free to write flash-backs if you deem them necessary. Any character not featured in an episode is free to write whatever they wish during that episode, as long as it is in character. Once each episode (chapter) is completed, the main blog (us) will create a post on this page that will have links to all of the events that each character has written about. This is so you can catch up with everything that other people have done, and hopefully gain some new insights into characters!
An example of an event is Peter and Nathan’s argument about whether Pete can fly, which would obviously be done as a thread between Nathan and Peter, or Niki blacking out/turning into Jessica and killing Linderman’s men, which would be done as a self-post.
If your character is not featured in an episode, you have no obligation to write anything, so you can take a break! J I would think that each episode might take a week-2 weeks (at the broadest guess).
Anything that your character does, feel free to write about, as long as we’re currently in that episode.
The plot is the exact same plot as Heroes, season 1, these are the events we’ll be writing on, and the characters we’ll be using. Feel free to audition for any character.
Note: We will not be starting the RolePlay until every major character from season 1 is filled. Those who are not as important may be written by whoever interacts with said character until filled.
Also, if your thread or self-post is particularly well written, you may be awarded a star (*) against it on the main page that will tell everyone that it’s well written.
At the end of each series, we may swap around characters – they will be re-opened so that other people can have a chance at them, unless you particularly want to keep them, in which case you will have to re-audition with season 2’s portrayal of your character.
This is so that everyone can have a chance at portraying different characters, and so that nobody gets bored. Even if you don’t end up playing the same character for Series 2 as you do Series 1, we would love for you to keep your Series 1 account as we will still have you listed as the Series 1 version of that character, and all of your posts for series 1 will still be linked here.
Was that confusing? Any questions? Feel free to ask here.
