When submitting a character make sure to include the characters full name and the media they're from. If the character + media they're from has had several editions, please clarify which one.
An example of what I'm looking for:
Peter Parker from the MCU's Spiderman movies
This blog won't accept:
Youtubers roleplaying variants of themself or similar things
Characters from cop shows, Hetalia, Harry Potter, and other media that cannot be enjoyed critically without giving power to it's shitty creator or due to its themes being based on bigotry. List of specific media here
Characters that are personifications of countries, mental illnesses, etc.
Characters who have committed genocide or rape/sexual assault, engaged in incest*, or is a pedophile/sexual predator
Characters under 14
*unless they're from greek/roman mythology, because it's,,, like that.

The middle section is muted pastel colors, from left to right: yellow, green, blue-green, blue, and purple. Another black line separates the middle second from the bottom section. The bottom section looks the same as the top. /End ID]

Q & A
Q: "One of the characters submitted breaks the rules"
A: Thanks for letting me know! My knowledge of media is limited, so I may accidentally break my rules when posting a character. I ask though that when letting me know about characters that break the rules, explain how.
Q: "I want to submit a character but they're from a book/podcast/etc. and don't have official art"
A: Send them anyway. I'll use the book/podcast/etc. cover.
Q: "I don't think this character has szpd"
A: This blog's content is provided by submissions from other people. Respect them to have their own reasons
Q: "One of the characters submitted canonly is autistic or has schizophrenia/schizoaffective disorder"
A: As far as I'm aware, it's possible for someone to have szpd and be autistic/have schizophrenia/schizoaffective disorder. It's just often difficult to tell the difference due to similarities in how they outwardly present themselves. I respect submitters to have their reasons and allow the characters on this blog.
What is SZPD?
SZPD stands for schizoid personality disorder. Please note this definition comes from the mod's personal understanding and may not 100% match how others define it. As a personality disorder, SZPD affects how someone experiences their emotions, their sense of identity, and how they relate to other people, among other things. People with SZPD are detached from other people, their emotions, and often times the world around them. Detachment from other people may be physical, which ends up with them avoiding relationships, or it may be on an emotional level. It's also common for pw/ SZPD to have rich inner fantasy lives, few hobbies, lack of drive, and feelings of emptiness and depersonalization. While there is a myth that pw/ SZPD can't form genuine relationships, some can- it's just often really difficult.
Being a sideblog, I can't easily control who does and does not interact with this blog. However, I will not post submissions if they (knowingly) come from someone who fits one of the below-
