C.C.W.C: October Edition
If you're participating in the Character Challenge Writing Contest, then you will place your entry in the comments. Treat it just like you were making a regular character application! This way, your characters can also get approved (if they are eligible for approval), while being judged. YOU MUST put your entry here and only here, before you try and get it approved. If you believe your character is complete and ready for approval, before the contest is over, then say so in bold letters at the end of the application/entry. There is more info on character approval within the challenge, under the section that reads: Rules. You can also always ask me, AsteriaNyx, for clarity
TOPIC FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER: You have a choice this month, because this month holds my FAVORITE holiday. ;3
Option 1: Make someone for the upcoming Psych ward. Blood thirsty and insane, with a lack of empathy, please. ‘Tis is the season to be naughty.
Option 2: Criminal, that wants to make money and power, with the willingness to kill whoever gets in your way. Outcome for the character, which shouldn’t be mentioned in the history, but considered when writing it, is the joining of Jade Dragon.

IMPORTANT: IF YOU ENTER AN APPLICATION FOR THE COMPETITION, THEN GET THE APPLICATION APPROVED IN ORDER TO RP THAT CHARACTER; YOU CANNOT FIX ANY PART OF THAT APPLICATION SUBMITTED IN THE COMPETITION.
This means that if you are told you need to edit some parts in order to get your application approved, you must make another application (For the same character) in another forum and make those changes there. You can not touch the application that you entered in the challenge, once you make the decision to try and get it approved.
