*Kakashi starts explaining*
The Sharingan is one of the three great doujutsus, literally meaning the "Copy Wheel Eye" and it's power level is determined by how many dots or "tomoes" that are shown in the eye when activated, the Sharingan has 3 abilities gained from 1 Tomoe to 3 Tomoe, which are seeing the chakra flow, genjutsu related abilities and tracking and prediction abilities.
First lets take the chakra flow, that's basically the most basic Sharingan ability and unlocked when activating the 2 Tomoe Sharingan, it's not activated in 1 Tomoe because when the Sharingan is in 1 Tomoe, it's considered an incomplete stage, but we will discuss the abilities of each level of Sharingan when we are done with the basic part, anyway the Sharingan can see the chakra flow of anything that has chakra flowing in it, and by itself it gives each and every chakra flow a distinctive color from one another, meaning that people's chakra color vary when you see it with the Sharingan, as a result of seeing the chakra flow and high clarity of perception that the Sharingan grants the user, the Sharingan has also the ability to differentiate between the basic 5 chakra natures, because each elemental chakra has a unique feature to it that makes it noticeable by the Sharingan, lets take fire for example, the Fire chakra is extremely hot which affects the color pattern, Wind chakra is composed of very thin blades, Lightning chakra vibrates rapidly, earth chakra is very dense, which affects the color by making it denser, water chakra has a certain flow, therefore it's known by the Sharingan when each chakra nature, achieving the capacity and clarity to determine each chakra nature of the basic 5 is unlocked when activating the 3 Tomoe Sharingan level, as a result of seeing the chakra flow as well, since chakra circulates around the body in a certain manner, when genjutsu is used it interrupts the pattern of the chakra flow making the chakra flow irregular which leads the Sharingan to discovering when the genjutsu is being used on them, or anyone around them, The Sharingan cannot penetrate chakra, meaning that when a chakra flow is present in front of the Sharingan it can see past it no matter how faint or dense the chakra is, therefore Sharingan users are blinded when getting caught inside the hidden mist technique, the Sharingan however is capable of seeing through thin walls that contain no chakra in them to a certain extent, like for example it can see chakra right below the surface of the ground, but it can't see chakra deep within the ground.
Now onto the second ability, genjutsu related abilities of the Sharingan, like i mentioned before the Sharingan is capable of determining the genjutsu when it happens by watching the irregular chakra flow, in addition to that, the Sharingan is capable of piercing through visual genjutsu of B-rank and below in case of 3 Tomoe Sharingan, what defines the genjutsu technique to be a visual one is it's features, like for example genjutsu that affects your eye sight making you see false illusionary images that aren't real, if a part of the genjutsu or all of it fools your sight, then your Sharingan can pierce through that genjutsu according to the rank, however genjutsus that affect only your hearing or touch then it's not considered a visual genjutsu and therefore not breakable by the Sharingan, however breaking through visual genjutsus doesn't mean that the Sharingan can only identify visual genjutsu, it identifies all kinds of genjutsu through the chakra flow, and keep one thing in mind, the Sharingan can indeed break through B-rank and below visual genjutsu, but that doesn't mean that the Sharingan user is immune to that level of genjutsu when used against him, the Sharingan often takes a second or two to break the genjutsu, depending on how powerful your Sharingan is by the tomoe level and such, meaning that the genjutsu will affect you for only a moment, but the next moment your Sharingan will break free of it, when encountering a genjutsu technique you can't just assume that the Sharingan knows it, you have to clearly describe how you know it's a genjutsu in this case by saying that the Sharingan sees the irregular chakra flow and therefore knows that this is a genjutsu, when achieving the 3 Tomoe Sharingan level, you receive a new ability, which is casting genjutsu through your Sharingan eyes, the genjutsu casted with the Sharingan is extremely fast, but has a huge drawback, is not only does it need you to have a clear view and gazing directly into your opponent's eyes, but also it needs your opponent to be looking at your Sharingan eyes to work, that's the case of most Sharingan related genjutsus excluding some of them which should be clearly written in the technique's description, anyway for the eye contact based genjutsu short range fights are your best option if you want to use it, you only need one second or one moment with a mutual eye contact to cast your eye genjutsu.
Third and last ability of the Sharingan is the tracking and prediction/copying abilities, lets take tracking first, the Sharingan has the ability to slow down the movements when you are looking at it, meaning that movements will happen a lot slower to you than they are in reality, that doesn't mean that the speed is literally slowed down, you just see it slowed down with your Sharingan, which gives you higher reaction times when encountering fast movements, but you have to remember that for you to keep up with high speeds "normally" your body has to have the same speed of the target, you can see it, but your body doesn't have the speed capacity to keep up with it, i'll describe the speed limit when mentioning each of the Sharingan power levels, as a result of high speed tracking and high clarity of perception your Sharingan is able to catch the slightest movement that's done by your opponent, even an ear twitch, making the Sharingan a great asset in close ranged fights, now onto the prediction abilities, the Sharingan is capable of predicting ninjutsu techniques that's done by your opponent according to a set of rules, first you have to have clear vision of his handseal usage and second you have to have encountered or know the technique that he's using previously, in order to know which exact technique he is going to use without him even using it, this works for all cannon techniques once you master them, therefore you would be capable of predicting each and every cannon technique before they happen and therefore have more reaction times, for custom techniques you must have encountered the technique before or know it, keep in mind that when you know the technique happening you can't possibly react before it's done, meaning to use a technique before your opponent uses his justifying it by you knowing what technique he is going to use, in our RP this defies the timeframe rule, your Sharingan is also capable of predicting Taijutsu movements according to the movement patterns of the body and reacting to it accordingly making the sharingan a very deadly weapon when fighting hand to hand users, now onto the copying part, this part is not fully achieved in this RP, because the Sharingan is capable of copying any techniques the user witnesses and can use, for example basic 5 elements, which everyone can use, but when it comes to custom jutsus they can't be copied to keep the custom jutsus unique to their users.

Now any questions you'd like to ask? and mention what training Sharingan stage you are in right now, i assume you both achieved 1 Tomoe Sharingan already right?
