welcome to goss!
Countless intangible veils separate all universes from each other - and from ours. The fabric of space and time is at its faintest, like gossamer, at these proximate points we share with all other realities. Interdimensional castaways are drawn to safety and arrive on a train in our core world, Hialao. The train system also serves as our lifeblood by connecting five other worlds to Hialao.

With the dimensional displacements not yet showing signs of slowing, and research forever futile on how to leave (besides those who simply vanish, falling back through the invisible curtain), it's impossible to say who might arrive and how they might shape this fragile series of lands, eras and cultures. Good luck out there.

Our application template was made by Juliannacodes exclusively for Gossamer. Thanks to kismet for the sidebar cookie script. Icons courtesy of Ionicons. Banner art by Pixiv user ID #122500. Free pixel icon resources sourced from various places such as pvstels, 7soul1, The Infamous Bon Bon, neonvamp, and more.

Site premise was formed by the original staff of Gossamer - Alida, Prince, Rebecca, Morgan, and Tera, who created the dimensions of Elestis, Hialao, Parse, Barrows, and Wildewall, respectively. Additionally, Tethya was the result of a site event and was created by a former member, Velvet.

Gossamer's genre-based multi-world concept must not be duplicated or mirrored elsewhere without express permission from the current owner and staff. Member-made content belongs to its respective creators. DO NOT RIP, INSPIRE, RECREATE, OR STEAL ANY PART OF THIS SITE.

FREEFORM APP
general
  • Your topic title should be your character's full name exactly as it is in your profile - i.e. FIRST LAST or, if respecting Japanese roots, LAST FIRST. The description should be FANDOM / YOUR ALIAS. THIS MUST BE A FORWARD SLASH, NOT ANY OTHER SYMBOL.

  • This app has two images: the first, which should be exactly 150px wide and 300px high, and the second, which should be exactly 100x100 pixels.

  • Please check the occupations claim thread in order to help choose an occupation for your character (though it doesn't have to be on the list!). It should be the job they'll have on Goss, not the job they held before coming to the new dimension, though if their former job is still available in some form on Goss, they can be the same!

  • Quality over quantity, but make sure you have given enough information on your character. If you're having some issues, see the help below.

  • DO NOT write this as a traditional-style application (i.e. sections for personality and history, likes/dislikes, appearance, or anything similar). We want to see a creative show of your understanding of the character, not a regurgitation of your knowledge.

  • If you are having some issues with setting up your application, feel free to take a look at some of the already accepted apps to get a good idea what to do for you own!

  • If you still have any questions, even after reading our little guidelines/tips below, feel free to ask!

  • IMPORTANT: In the very beginning of the app code, where it says app-1 MEMBERGROUP, please fill in MEMBERGROUP with your character's usergroup in ALL CAPITALS: either HIALAO, WILDEWALL, ELESTIS, PARSE, BARROWS, TETHYA, or DRIFTERS. This is vital for the header and colours in the rest of your app to match your character's usergroup.
pointers
  • Do show us that you have a good grasp on your character. We value quality over quantity – some characters may require more elaboration than others, but in the end, what matters is that you demonstrate understanding of the character and convey the character to the reader.

  • Don't skip the proofread. While a few mistakes here and there are alright (we certainly won't deny you for one typo), persistent mistakes that interfere with reading will cause the app to be pended. (Things to watch out for: misspellings, punctuation errors, sentence fragments and run-ons, awkward sentence structure.)

  • Do use references like wikis to ensure your application is accurate, but don't copy and paste directly from them – this is plagiarism, and it doesn't communicate your own understanding of the character.

  • Do remember that the entire package is more important than small details! An app that shows clear effort and a deep understanding of the character will be able to get away with more minor errors than an app that's very bare-bones. There's no rubric for app evaluation, so try to give us something that you're proud of - something that showcases the best parts of your writing as well as your character.

  • With the freeform app, please do not use coding that you do not understand. If you know what you're doing, great. However, using more advanced coding has a tendency to break certain aspects of the site. When in doubt, keep it simple.

a small explanation on your character's species and any powers or abilities they have. even if they aren't considered gifted or undefined, if they have any notable skills you can put them here. the box will scroll the longer you go!
this is your freeform application. you can do pretty much anything with this so long as it gives us a good look at the character and shows you understand them. there is no set length for this application, but if you need some examples of what we find acceptable just take a look at previously accepted applications! you can also use separators in the form of [ h1 ][ /h1 ], [ h2 ][ /h2 ], and [ h3 ][ /h3 ]! make sure to close your bbcodes!

a small explanation on where you pulled your character from in canon to make things easier for anyone considering taking a character from the same fandom. it doesn't have to be anything in-depth, just a quick note on about where the others should be pulled from as well. it will scroll the longer it gets!
