Well, hi there, everypony! I didn't think I would see this sort of community again after everything that has happened over the years. I have been an avid fan of series and I'm really excited to join every pony and creature in the fun of role play. I hope you find my musings as entertaining as I seem to think they are. I look forward to meeting with every reader that comes by.

Welcome, Blueberry! I'm not an admin, but please do read the General Rules and the RP Rules and Etiquitte. They seem to have been (perhaps accidentally) moved from their usual place on the homepage, but are still just as important. We are all eager to see your contributions to this site! Feel free to browse till your heart's content and when you're ready, make sure to apply one of your own characters to get started (here's a guide to making a good application).

 

In any case, welcome to Canterlot! I look forward to seeing you around! ;)

Hello ~

The Fandom sure has slowed down since S9 (or maybe when Hasbro took over), but it's still very much alive. Welcome aboard, fellow greenie!

@Aisede I would not have guessed you were a "greenie" from how you were roleplaying in that post I joined! I suppose a second welcome is in order. Welcome to Canterlot. ;)

 

(PS. I'm not sure if you're aware, or if it's just your character who isn't, but Compass Rose is not a thestral. lol Click on her name to see her application ;) )

So, I missed my opportunity to make a proper introduction post. Should I just make a new post and start again or include the missing information here as a reply, seeing as I can not edit my post?

Having read through all the rules and guidelines, I feel ready to make my first character application. I assume I can not simply apply for a canon character right away, so I'll be role playing with an OC with the same name as my account.

Well, I look forward to seeing what a Blueberry pony is like. Although, with a name like that we're liable to think they're related to Derpy XD

While Derpy does appear with the moniker "Muffins" in the credits of the 100th episode of the canon series, her name has been far more will known as Derpy. Plus, that was either a nickname or only her first name. My OC has Muffins as her last name. Anyway, I can see what you're saying, with it being similar, though.

Hey there, Blueberry!  I'm one of the friendly neighborhood RP helpers, so if you have any questions, pm them my way!

 

Also, cast apps are handled on a case by case basis; we don't award them based on seniority, and we also don't mind having multiple Twilight Sparkles/Celestias/etc around, as long as you play them well!

 

Although, for some reason, I'm the only Blueblood on here....

Your name sparkles, just like sprinkled sugar on top of my favorite muffins. (Not rp...I like blueberry muffins and decided to make an OC based around that like.)

So, here's my new attempt at introductions, even though nopony responded to my query about if I need to make a new post... Ahem.

My name on here is Blueberry Muffins. The name of my new OC is also Blueberry Muffins. For breakfast, I would like... blueberry muffins. I sense a pattern. I like long trots on the beach and piña coladas... Just kidding. I'm a big D&D nerd. Been playing since the early 90's and running games since the late 90's. I was an avid reader and wrote a lot in my past, but after a long break from that I found myself able to come back into poetry and writing through RP.

 

Years ago, when Google Plus was still a thing, I ran my own community for RP. We had a cast full of a top notch canon role play actors... In truth, the entire cast was simply me diving into the characters to make an in depth RP session for those that engaged with me. I got recognition for my efforts and even headed a panel at my local convention that covered role play and writing. I had done quite a lot of research to be sure I gave the most accurate portrayal of each character. Most that came to the community felt I had done a good job with each character. I can't say that I am the best. I can't even say I am great and powerful, like a particular character that did plenty of growing over the series. I can easily say, though, that I've learned a lot and plan to continue to improve. I look forward to learning with each of you on how I can improve my methods.

 

I got into MLP, in truth, many years ago, much like with D&D. My sister was sitting watching a much earlier generation of the show and I sat with her. Down the road I found MLP:FIM and enjoyed it much more than the other version I watched years earlier. Being a student of psychology, I learned a lot about the personality profile each character portrayed. It didn't take long for me to deduce that Flutershy/Pinky Pie were voiced by the same person and Rainbow Dash/Applejack were each covered by the same actor. It grew the idea I had for running that RP community.

 

After everything closed down and the fandom all but dried up, I lost hope in ever enjoying such fun things again in the near future. My sister came to me about some fun things she was involved in online and showed me this site. I was quite happy to find out that this sort of thing was still around. I am glad that I finally found this site and join anew.

 

One of my favorites amongst the cast of MLP Canon RP accounts that I had on Google Plus was by far the one and only Zebra "from a far away land", the shaman and herbalist extraordinaire, Zecora. Through that account I got in touch with my almost lost poetry skills. The way she talks is not easy for many, but I'd do it all day for just a penny. Role playing as her I was able to do lots of research into herbal remedies and equestrian flora. It was a great experience.

 

Lastly, I want to, once again, express...I may have done many things in my past that draw strange expectations, but I am coming here after a great deal of learning that I don't know everything and need to take every opportunity to be the new girl and learn from a small station. So here I am, ready to learn how to be a better version of me through role play. I look forward to learning with each of you and improving my abilities each day.

I must admit, you are certainly in the running for that position... Ballots will be cast soon, better meet with constituents to ensure you get the most votes.

So, I understood that was supposed to wait for some sort of approval from an admin before I am able to move forward, is that not so?

Howdy!

You don't need any further permissions to make your application for any character you desire. Once a character is accepted, your profile will be updated so you can then make RP posts, but at the moment you do not require any additional tasking to make that app. :)

Thank you for your support. I'm glad to know that I am all set to begin. Do I need to have been doing RP in this community for a while before I ask to be allowed to apply for the role of a canon character? I can understand if you might require to see that I can, in fact, hold up my end of the conversation at all before you allow me to apply for that sort of position.

Nope. Back in the day when we had only a limited number of people who could play any given cast character, yes. But since we don't have any limits we will just judge the app, not the player. If it is good, then you can apply for and get accepted to use a cast character.

Then I will see you in character applications after I edit my account some. Please let me know if I need to improve in some way. I rather like not doing things wrong.
