SPOTLIGHT WRITER: ALIA

Characters: Jenny Thomas, Anna Wallace, Gina Lutz, Kaida Takadai, Jackson Street, Melody Guthrie and Kitty Pryde

Thread that best shows off your writing: Training? and Jinxed.

Writing strengths? Quick responses with meat (so not just a few words). Digging into characters motivations a bit.

What are you working on as a writer? Making my posts longer, using different words and really trying to find ways of digging in further to the characters psyche.

What were the biggest influences to your writing? Heinlein, Lucas, Herbert, JMS, Whedon.

Favorite X-men storyline/comic/artist/series? Storyline: Reaching way way back is probably the inital Brood one or the original Dark Phoenix. Single issue comic: Uncanny X-Men 303; it was the first one that I ever picked up. Artists: Oh god, The Kurbert brothers (Andy and Adam); Silvestri; Madureira; Cockrim; Byrne; Lee (I keep telling you all I have problems choosing!). Series: Original New Mutants and Generation X. Uncanny comes in third just because it's the original.

What drew you to BMF? KEL! We had a game together that died and I told her I missed gaming with her so she sent me this site.

What is your favorite aspect of BMF? The community. The fact that people work together to create plots and interconnected characters. That ideas aren't just 'no' but willing to be worked with. And the unique application.

Where would you like to see BMF go in the future? Anywhere it can. More plots. More posts. To grow and get bigger and take over the world...

BMF is more interested in a good story than we are an RP game, so the powers of our canons and OC's are toned down. If you are writing an application for a canon, use the powers from the Canon Lists for that character. If you are writing an original character (OC), then include the character's powers point break down from our OC Points System. If you need examples of powers approved for BMF check out our Powers List. Have a power you would like to see added to the list? Post it in the Q&A Area.

Marvel Canons not listed in our Canon section are not considered BMF canon and will need to follow the OC points system. Applications not following these instructions will be placed into the Pending section until they are fixed.

Read instructions carefully before filling out application.

Look for the <table> at the beginning of the app. In the table, you will need to replace First & Last with your character's first and last names, and then you will need to replace the 3 URLs between the quotes for each img src=”url”. The first pic needs to be 250X200, the second 140X240 pic and the last is 90X90.

After the table, drop down two paragraphs where there is a list of questions starting with Player Alias. Answer each question, but try to keep them as brief as possible because there is limited space for answers.

Another two paragraphs and there is a section for character information. Fill out the information, again, keeping in mind there is limited space so keep your answers brief.

Two more paragraphs and you are at the player interview that starts with the question What is your character’s super power? We want you to play the character you want to play so you are excited to RP them, but we also need them to fit into the BMF world. The more information you supply us, the easier we are able to fit your charcter into our ongoing plot.

Skip down another two and you are at the final phase. The Character Interview begins with the question: Standing in front of a mirror, what do you see? We do not require a writing sample because we expect you to show us your character through their answers to the interview. We want to know as much about your character as possible, so even if your character would be uncomfortable/angry/embarrassed about answering the question, provide an answer to the question that includes how they are feeling.
