Author has written 4 stories for Maximum Ride, NCIS: Los Angeles, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and Selection Trilogy, Kiera Cass.
Hi. My name is Kyra, obviously. In case you can't tell, I'm a huge fan of the Selection series, HP, Hunger Games, and PJO.
Welcome To Paradise-A Selection SYOC
Hello! After much thought (a whole day's worth,) I've decided to start up one of these SYOC's on my own! I've always loves writing, and love this series so much. I can't always promise quick updates (they will probably be about every week, maybe slightly sooner,) but I can promise you quality. I pride myself in my work, and I also will be happy to welcome your suggestions, constructive criticism, and theories!
Update: No Threes or Twos will be accepted, I'm good with the number I have now.
Rules about the form:
1) Please, no Mary-Sue characters. It's okay if they're a genuinely nice girl, but make them have some depth.
2) For personality, don't just list a ton of traits. I love seeing full sentences, and it's so nice when people put thought into their character. The more you tell me, the more I have to go on.
3) For the lowest castes (5,6,7) I will probably only be accepting a few from each, likely three, to make it realistic. Keeping with that realism, I will not be accepting Eights UNLESS they have a fantastic form. So, it is alright to submit one, but be prepared to change the caste.
4) You can submit by review or PM. I prefer PM but if you can't do that, review is okay.
5) Three submissions are allowed per user.
6) Diversity is great! Diverse cultures, appearances, histories, backgrounds, personalities, everything!
7) Unless I get the spots filled before, the deadline is February 20.
8) If needed, you're welcome to PM in more than one message. The quality of the submission is more important then your ability to make it fit in one message.
