This is NOT an RP group! If you are looking to RP, you have come to the wrong place!
!!!!!!!!! ATTENTION !!!!!!!!!!
Below we have the rules and regulations of the group, what we accept and some helpful links that you can use. You MUST read them thoroughly and completely, or you will not be accepted into the group.
Do not skim them, we WILL know!!!
Seriously guys, it's really NOT that hard. You will NOt be accepted unless you read all the rules, and telling us "I read the rules" in your join request proves you didn't.

*New Join Request policy, read the rules to find out more*
All Members Must Submit a Profile
-If you are looking to submit any art or literature into this group then you MUST submit a profile for your character. The group has it's own profile, do not use a different one. I created two profiles for use in this group, you MUST fill out ONE of the profiles for your characters.
*New cap on characters: all new members can submit a max of TWO characters each. Old members who have more than two can keep their characters, but can not submit any more.
No Big Three Children
-The Big Three cabins are closed. We will not be accepting any more Big Three profiles. They are too often poorly made, underdeveloped, Mary-Sue self-inserts who only exist so the creator can live out their wish of being a child of Poseidon or whatever. So, no more.
No children of Primordial Deities or Virgin Goddesses
We will not be accepting children of the Primordial Deities or Virgin Goddesses as they do NOT have relations with mortals and look down on them as inferior. If you submit one, they will be declined immediately. Here are the one's we won't be accepting from:
Gaea/Gaia - Goddess of the Earth
Tartarus - The Underworld
Nyx - the Darkness of Night
Chronos - God of Time
Erebus - God of Darkness
Hemera - Goddess of Daylight
Uranus - God of the Heavens/Father Sky
Hestia - VIRGIN Goddess of the Hearth
Artemis - VIRGIN Goddess of the Hunt
Submit to the right folder
Simple. Follow it.
No more dolls/character maker pictures or bases
-I know people have submitted work using that doll making site or the character maker here on dA. I have to respectfully ask the people no longer submit these. As you didn't make them, it's not your art, I'd rather there not be anymore. Same with pictures done using bases, I ask that people not submit anymore. I never wanted this group overrun with base art to begin with and you won't get any better as an artist by using them. I don't care if you suck at art, just try and draw it yourself. This only helps you, I promise.
Only finished work
Please only submit finished pieces of art. We will not accept sketched work or WIPs. Please add a little depth and shading to your pencil work.
*This does not apply to chaptered stories.
Do NOT dump
-We are NOT an art dump. This group is for people who are serious about their characters. Do not come here just to drop off some pictures in an attempt to get more favorites. I will remove you.
-Again, do not come here just to dump a picture and try to get more favorites. We're here for fans to interact with each other and grow as artists, writers and creators.
No Mary-Sues/Gary-Stus or Self-Inserts
-ALL characters must submit a profile ('tis in the rules). Your profile will be REVIEWED to make sure they are well-developed, realistic, not over-powered characters. I do not sugar-coat anything, but I'm not mean. If you can't handle constructive criticism, don't join the group.
-Do NOT refer to yourself as a "Daughter of Athena", "Son of Hephaestus" or anything of the sort. You are NOT a demigod, your character is. If you do so, you will be ignored.
-You WILL show respect to myself, the co-founders, contributors and members of this group. If not, you will be removed immediately. Do NOT bash anyone in this group based on their art, writing, characters or pairings. It's not your place to be an ass.
-If they show a history of demi-children
-If they are considered a god
-If they were on the side of the Olympian Gods in BOTH wars
-If they are "good" titans
(you must provide proof)
Other rules for demi-god acceptance
-We won't accept Demi-God children of Gods who show no evidence/have no history of relating with mortals
(i.e. Khione shows no evidence of relating with mortals or having half-blood children - never mind the fact that in the books she takes the form of a teenager and shows clear disdain of mortals- we won't accept children of her.
Please don't butcher the English Language
All stories will be reviewed for decent grammar, spelling and sentence structure.
*We won't go into depth and turn away stories that aren't written perfectly. Not at all. We just want it to be legible and written with a decent skill level.
Do NOT submit art to favorites...
UNLESS YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE GROUP! Do NOT submit your own work to the favorites, it will be turned away. We are not here for you to shamelessly promote yourself, make your own group if you want to do that. Do not ask us to favorite your work, we will say no.
Join Requests Must be Reviewed
-Due to some people refusing to read the rules, all join requests are now under review. You will be asked if you've read the rules and won't be accepted until you do. If you break the rules even once, I will remove you. You told me you read the rules, there's no excuse for not following them. Also, if you do not include the phrase "JJ Flip, what the zip" in your join request, you WILL be declined without explanation.
-And if you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask us, we're here to help.
most importantly I want you to just have fun here (^_^)
What we accept:
-Fan characters (this means non-canon, a character that YOU created yourself)
-Drawings, sketches, paintings, digital and tradition
What we DON'T accept:
-Canon characters WITHOUT the presence of a fan character

Just thought I'd let everyone know:
When you submit a character intro they're under review, that doesn't mean they will be accepted. If you can't take constructive criticism on your characters then don't bother joining the group.

Hello all! Sorry to inform you that the Yearbook kind of fell through again. Life happens, we move on. Maybe the group will try for a third time in the future. After all, third time's a charm.
Speaking of future, that's a good segway into what this journal is about.
The Mods all spoke and we've agreed; it's time to move on.
The four of us mods are all adults here, and to be honest, we've lost our drive for this group. We all started here in high school probably, (idk specifics, but I digress), and it's been a great run! We've really enjoyed our time here. But we've all sort of moved on from good ol' dA.
But just because we're old AF doesn't mean this group should die!!
Which is why we're seeking new management!
If anyone wants to run the group, and do with it whatever you want, you are more than welcome!! Just contact me RandomAwesomeWeirdo and I'll make you a mod for the group.
It would be beneficial for the new mods to have at least two (managing a group is trickier than expected), but if you're really ambitious and want to tackle the group management by yourself, be our guest!!
Please consider being a mod! It would be a shame to see such a large community die. If nobody takes up the reins, the group will surely wither away!
Again, please contact RandomAwesomeWeirdo if you want the job!
