A requested critique on LittleLady's Greek God RP. Below I will be the one speaking in bold.
This will be a RP about Greek gods, godesses, demi-gods, and mortals. You can send in your forms early to me.
Note: Please read about the god/dess you want to be before making the form.
So far, so good. Research is a very important aspect in RPs such as these.
The gods have done everything they can for the mortals, but they aren't satisfied. They want more, they wish to overthrow the gods. They want the power of the gods. They know that they will die, but they don't care. They will kill the demi-gods first, then the goddesses, the the lesser gods. Then finally, Zeus himself.
Zeus knows their plan. He must act fast. He calls together all the gods and demi-gods. They form a plan to destroy the rebellious mortals.
Who will succeed? The answer is to come...
Honestly, I don't know if I like the plot so much. The Greek people respected their Gods and Goddesses very much, and didn't wish to overthrow them. I know, it's fantasy and the whole deal didn't really ever happen, but there isn't much logic behind it. This, and the Gods and Goddesses most likely wouldn't be the type to kill their people. They didn't embody an all powerful God such as the one in Christianity, Islam, and Judaism; but acted as if they were real life people. This, and they played out certain events in Ancient Greek history. I'm not saying I absolutely hate or want you to change the plot completely, I just think it could use a bit of thinking over.
Here is the form to message to me.

Hera wasn't exactly sweet; she was a jealous, vicious, and very controlling woman. She didn't like to see Zeus around other women.
Rank (god, goddess, etc.): goddess
Appearance:Tall and very elegant. Her hair is a deep black color and very curly, normally pulled up in a ponytail.
Personality: A bit controlling, but in the end she's a good person.

I don't really think Persephone was portrayed as too controlling. After all, she was the one kidnapped and acted more-or-less submissive towards Hades.
Rank (god, goddess, etc.): god
Appearance: His features are well chiseled. Not overly muscled, but just enough. His hair is a light sandy blond color.
Personality: Cocky, a bit of a joker. Can be serious at times.

I don't know if I would call him cocky, but rather, calm. You're off to a good start with Apollo, however.
Rank (god, goddess, etc.): God
Appearance: Tall, Muscular, brown hair, brown eyes.
Personality: Likes to Fight in battle. Can be a gentle men.
Other: God of war. Has the power to create warriors. Son of Zeus. Has wings. Can fly.

Ares wouldn't be portrayed as a gentlemen. Unlike his sister, Athena, who represents the more peaceful part of adding intelligence to a war, Ares represented the actual battle itself. Therefore, he embodied the "overwhelming, destructive, and man-slaughtering" portion of the war. So he would be a bit of a cocky block-headed brute.
When LittleLady tells you to do your research, please do your research.
Name: Venus (Aphrodite)
Rank (god, goddess, etc.): Goddess
Appearance: Deep brown hair, that curls and is light to the touch with bright green eyes
Personality: She is stubborn and snappish
BYC username: CochinBrahmaLover
Aphrodite is the Goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. She would not be stubborn and snappy, but loving and motherly. This, and you should probably mention in her appearance that she is gorgeous. In Greek mythology, all of the other Gods feared her beauty would cause battles. Just pointing this out.
I hope I could help a bit. Let me know if you need some more.
