Well hello there internet dwellers, this is the GUIDELINES
post for all your juicy gossip and your nasty rumors. Breaking it down for those not familiar with the show. Gossip Girl is the narrator of the show Gossip Girl, she posts gossips and rumors anonymously
that are texted to her with pictures and/or video. I know you're thinking, why the hell does that matter? Well, it means that she will never reveal her sources and she'll never give them up. We never know who she is, or where she is, but she's always there stalking.
You can either submit gossip which she would just report on, or you could start a nasty rumor - you can make it up about yourself or others. Just some things to keep in mind when you are submitting:
Submissions can either be IC or OOC
☆ All posts and entries cannot be seen ICly. They are filtered/locked/screened - whichever you want to call it - away from characters. Player wise, everyone is allowed to see them. We do ask that you do not discuss posts on the submission posts, but rather AIM or another medium. Thank you ♥
☆ Respect permission memes! Do not post a thread that has Bruce talking and call him Batman and reveal his identity, the same with Crane and Scarecrow, Clark and Superman etc... Gossip Girl will not post that rumor.
If you do not want your characters to participate in Gossip Girl, please reply there.
☆ Out of consideration for other muns, if you are posting a rumor - we do require confirmation that they are aware of this and approve of this. No one likes to be in the dark about rumors about their character. And seeing as they are "screened" (no one can look at submissions ICly) and Gossip Girl does not reveal her sources nor does she reply to her posts, it would be nice to have everyone in the loop. If we do not get a confirmation on the thread of the submission, that rumor will not be posted.
☆ When posting a rumor about yourself or your character, there is no need for confirmation because ahahaa, it's you.
☆ Gossip does provide a thread of reference so that whoever is writing up the Gossip Girl post can see what is going on in context. However, in her post, those thread of references will not be revealed. We will not spy on Locked/Filtered threads, nor will they be accepted - unless it is someone leaking the lock and that will have be submitted ICly.
☆ When providing a link of reference, please provide a small synopsis of what you want Gossip Girl to say more or less.
☆ Artwork/Candid pictures are also permitted for RLs! Please make sure you have permission from people that are within the RL that you can submit it. Once again, if we do not get a confirmation on the thread of the submission, it will not be posted.
☆ Lastly, you are free to veto submissions that concern your character. We post these once a week/week and a half depending on our schedules. For rumor posts, if we do not get a confirmation we do not post them. However, if it is a gossip thread, and you do not want to be a part of it, feel free to veto it.
, please specify that they are IC or OOC by writing it in the subject line. All of them are considered "screened" meaning that ICly no one else can see what is being submitted. This has been stickied on the top of the journal just for your reference. Don't worry, in every submission post, I'll be linking you all here.
☆ submission IC/OOC:
☆ characters involved:
☆ if gossip, please provide thread of reference:
☆ what is it that you want Gossip girl to say
☆ if rumor, paste it here:
☆ have you gotten permission from all muns involved?:
The actual post itself will reference people by the first letter of their name
. People will be able to know who she is talking about because we will link the letter to their journal. For instance:
Spotted, C bickering with B on the steps of Wayne manor. A maternal squabble perhaps? Careful Chuck, Mama brought you into this world, Mama can take you out of it.
There it is! Feel free to post your questions here!
Who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell.
XOXO Gossip Girl ~
