This is first and foremost a AU Naruto Roleplay community. The timeline begins after the time-skip. At this point all the characters will be around 16-17 years old. The events take place before Gaara is abducted and will branch of from the "normal" timestream from then on. Have fun ya'll.
For yet to be seen motives Akatsuki is after Gaara for the Shukaku that lives within him, as well as Naruto. Sasuke still trains with Orochimaru to wait until the day he can kill his brother. Naruto has since then returned to Konoha, his training with Jiraiya complete and seemingly stronger from the experience. Plots to capture both him and Gaara, now Kazekage of the Suna are set in motion by the malicious Akatsuki.
Meanwhile, the characters are growing and maturing, finding feelings in themselves which Shinobi should not possess. Each dealing with their own challenges, will they continue to grow together? Or will the next generation of Konoha-nin fall apart before they even have the chance to come together?
HOW TO POST
+When replying to a post post in the third person, this is like writing an ordinary story for those of you not familiar with the term.
+When replying to a characters journal entry you reply in first person like your writing the comment yourself.
+Third person posting in the community and first person in your respective journals.
+In AIM chats we would prefer that your write in the third person when RPing unless it's OOC conversation.
+Please keep that Crack in the Chats to a minimum, odds are one of the mods will be present in the chat. If not please do your best.
+AIM logs, if an official part of the RP and not crack, are required. But if it's crack then go ahead and post them in the OOC community.
Post using this format.
Joining: Who's coming into your thread? Open, Closed, Certain members and such. Location: Where you'r RP is taking place. Time: What time of day or what particular day is it? Recap: What your RP entails, what's it about. Warnings: Violence is all about you'll need here. Since there shouldn't be horribly sexual content at all, if there is MINOR sc then post it here. Remember hentai isn't allowed. I want the comm to be for everyone and safe for everyone.
Put you're post BEHIND and lj-cut, like this:

They are welcome. Third person can be posted in the community. First person in your character journal, of under a lj cut in the comm if you don't have a journal. Monologues are good if you want us to know something about your characters past, or internal thoughts, of if you just want to write, go ahead and post it. We love to read your work.
To apply for an original character please comment here.
*You may apply for any character for characters that are supposedly dead, use this format. ** Note, only characters who have died AFTER Gaara's death are allowed to be played.

And just for fun! HERE'S a post where you can see the faces behing the pups!
+No Godmoding. What I mean by this, is that you cannot control another person's character without their permission. If you are playing two characters and they are interacting within the same post I allow it in MODERATION. don't abuse your privelage.
+You cannot have an all powerful character. Even the most powerful characters in Naruto can get hurt, so please play fair.
+Also I would like to add that if your character does not know another personally in the series, please do not write as if they have some sort of history (please discuss these things with the other player) This goes especially for Original Characters. The ONLY time I will allow this is if you two have played previously in another forum similar to this one. For example, one of my friends is at a forum where I play Kiba and she plays Bahku, if she ever decided to bring Bahku here and I know her then it's alright by me. But PLEASE tell me first so I don't yell at you... no one likes feeling stupid.
+Two words: Spell Check
+Stay active. Do not sign up, post once or twice, then never return. This is unacceptable. If you are absent for ONE MONTH without prior notice we will write your character out of the game as on hiatus. If you do not return after TWO MONTHS, your character will be expelled from the community and a new person found to RP them. When you join, you must always try to do your best to keep up with the RP. If you are going to be absent for a length of time, you MUST inform one of the mods or leave an OOC message for everyone to see. Know whats going on. Please play attention to the other rp's and not just your own. Sometimes certain events are brought up again down the road, and it is best to know whats going on. If you are new, please read though old posts to get an idea of whats happening before you post. If you need help just ask!
+Be nice. In no way will we tolerate discrimination to other players. We want you to have fun, not to fight. Anyone found breaking this rule will be banned. No warning.
+Remember not all players will know everything thats going on. Use your own judgement. If Anko is eating Dango down the street, then do you really think Chouji is going to know about it? No. Of course not. However, Chouji could certainly come around looking for dango himself and happen to find Anko.
+OOC brackets. Please when speaking Out Of Character use brackets. (( like this )) or [[this]]
+DO NOT USE ALL CAPS. It is annoying.
+One lined posts are not acceptable. Must be at least five sentences long. AT LEAST. In comments at least two sentences.
+Yaoi/Yuri is allowed but only for original characters and please put them behind an LJ Cut with a warning. Not everyone likes to read that. Hentai is not allowed.
+Crack pairings are allowed and so are love triangles. But make it resonable, don't make it unrealistic.
+Dead characters MUST have plausible reasons to be alive.
+No ooc characters. You must be able to rp them as they are in the manga. We all know Sasuke's emo but don't over do it! Don't overdramatize your characters and don't make them suck either.
+RP journals are a must. If you don't have one, make one. It helps to keep things from getting confused. So we don't get a, "WTF who is this new Kiba replying to my thread?!" moment and such.
+NPCs: These are non-player characters, these dudes are allowed as long as they are helping move your story along. Don't go on creating a character out of them. Eventually they will have to leave get killed off. Like if you're in a hospital, there ARE going to be nurses and doctors, you certaintly don't heal yourself when you're unconcious.
+The Max Naruto characters you can play is 3. You're OC counts as one.
+FRIEND THE OTHER MEMBERS! It's always nice to read what they got going on in their journals. Also so you're aware of what they right about you or whatever and such and such. Even the villians. You can't comment on theirs though, only other villians related to them are allowed. Vice versa.
OOC = 'Out of Character' OC = 'Original Character' RPG = 'Role Playing Game' NPC = 'Non-Player Character'
*If you're new to RPing in Livejournal or RPing at all just let me know! <3 I was new to it when I started this comm, so I'll learn you in the ways of the RPing Narutards. ♥
