    Greetings! I’m Merl.

    At this time, I am NOT SEEKING NEW STORIES.

    Overall, I am pretty easy-going, and friendly. That said, I do know what I like in an RP and I find it is worth it to take time to ensure that we are compatible as writers. I do not select partners on a first come, first serve basis. That said, if I do decline an invitation, it doesn't mean that I won't seek you out again in the future!

    If you wish to get to know me a little better, I invite you to take a look at my profile.

    Note - I love being social through the status messages (people here are really quite awesome and interesting). That said, I will not accept any offers for roleplay through a status message, nor will I seek out anyone in this manner.

    In the meantime, happy roleplaying!

    Merl's Style and Preference

    • RP should be relaxed and fun, but I am most compatible with people who choose to write at a college level. I do not expect perfection as long as it is evident that one has taken some time to edit for grammar, spelling, punctuation, and so on. I have the same expectation for those who write from mobile devices. I am by no means perfect, of course, and will often go back and edit after posting—this is absolutely acceptable!
      • I will only write in the third-person.
      • On rare occasions, I will ask for a brief writing sample.
      Each post should be long or short enough to provide forward momentum to the story. Creative description, and narration are certainly encouraged, but I don't believe in setting a min/max post limit. That said…
      • No one-liners unless you can make it the most beautiful one-liner in all the land! (Seriously, I need to be crying by the end of that one line!)
      • No fluff; as a rule, content should be there to enhance, and contribute to the scene.
    • My style is collaborative, and story-driven. I ask that you be willing participate equally with all parts of the creative process--plot, setting, and character development. Depending on the story, I am happy to play multiple characters, NPCs, and anything else required to make our story feel whole. Please be comfortable giving and discussing your own ideas to build and drive plot forward as we play; I love brainstorming and sharing ideas. I also love unexpected twists, and little surprises when and where appropriate.

      At this time I am not interested in plots that require a great deal of time dedicated to world-building. I do not have any time to do it properly.
    • I love romance as much as the next person, but it is not a requirement. My first love is great story with engaging characters—everything else is icing! If romance will be an element in our story, I am most comfortable with MxF (I play guys and girls equally). That said, I am willing to explore other avenues on a case-by-case basis.

      Erotica, much like romance, is absolutely an option—never a requirement. It is, perhaps, easier to discuss preferred kinks and turn-offs in-person as this is largely dependent on the genre and type of story to be explored. (Note - for medieval or historical settings, I do prefer a more vanilla approach to erotica. Some things just need to be in a modern setting).

      KinksTurn Offs

      • BDSM
      • Strict bondage (ropes and other restraints)
      • Gags
      • Teasing (verbal, and sexual)
      • Orgasm control/denial
      • Light breath play
      • Collaring
      • Servitude
      • Light spanking/punishment
      • ... and more!

      • Incest of any kind
      • Extreme ageplay
      • toilet-play
      • rape
      • domestic abuse
      • teacher/student
      • extreme torture
      • extreme degredation
      • extreme pet-play
      • anthro/"furry"
      • mind-control
      • characters rendered unconscious (Aka. chloroform)
    • Erotica and kinks aside (see previous tab), I have learned recently that it worth taking a moment to better define my limits in stories. Ninety-nine percent of the time I am a very chill and friendly person only a little obsessive! The following will hopefully clarify things.

      Simply put, what I enjoy doing (and not doing) in an erotic-based story is very different than other genres/plots. There are a few things I still will not do, but I have far, far fewer limits with one very simple rule:

      Anything in the story must be done with the utmost respect and consideration prior to final posting. "Taboo," and atrocious acts--particularly those of a grotesque or violent nature--need to carefully considered for appropriateness ahead of time.

      My comfort level of what content may or may not be included in a story, regardless of genre, is determined on a case-by-case basis, and something that will be a key point of discussion during the planning process.
    • Friendliness and making oneself approachable always makes for better stories. It is invaluable to be able to chat, plot, plan, and, if needed, address concerns. We certainly do not need to chit-chat constantly, but “how are you?” “How was your weekend?” Simple conversation keeps the mood light, and that almost always makes for a more successful story. This is especially important to me if the story is of a darker nature.
    • My schedule and life commitments can make my responses wildly inconsistent. Occasionally, I can give responses multiple times in a day, but this is very rare. It is most realistic to expect a post about once, maybe twice a week. I will usually let you know when life gets busy, but rest assured that once we’ve started a story I will stick with it, or notify you otherwise.

      Please let me know when you need a hiatus, or if you wish to stop. I understand about life and priorities; there are times when my own responses will be slow, and certainly times when I will need to take a hiatus from writing altogether. I will do my best to communicate my needs as well.

      It is not in my nature to pester or give regular reminders for you to post.

      Lastly, when a story is awesome and engaging, I can often go back to it again even if it has been inactive for months (or longer). If you drop off from our story, and wish go come back, then just let me know! If our old story is not suitable, I am almost always happy to start a new story with old friends. :blush:


    Plots and Favorite Genres

    At this time, I would love to find someone interested in something a bit relaxed, yet fun. A healthy dose of erotica would be welcome as well. I find myself also craving a bit of deliciously dark, and gritty action--particularly, werewolves.

    • There are no plots or ideas involved in this other than to pick a character, pick a setting, and ready-set-go! We can do virtually anything here from two strangers meeting in the bar, neighbors sneaking off for a naughty rendezvous in the middle of the day; naughty bosses and underlings, mistaken identities, revenge scenarios, and more! I love domination/submission, and though I do so enjoy playing a submissive character, I am willing to play dominant as well.

      The sky is the limit more or less, and honestly, there are numerous elements of BDSM and bondage that I would love to explore.
    • It’s always fun when the gods play with those pesky mortals. I am particularly partial to a modern setting in which greek gods live among us. I've done a few of these types of stories in the past, and with the right partner could be fun again!
    • Lots of opportunities here. I love stories with characters who unwittingly find themselves out of their own place and time. There are quite a few historical time-periods I would enjoy (in no particular order: medieval, New World/Revolution, Ancient, Prehistoric, and more. I am also open to post-apocalyptic/dystopian twists, alternate realities, dimensions, and even sci-fi future/space.

      These stories could be people from the present travelling to another time/place, or visa-versa.
    • Who doesn’t love this trope/cliché? Okay, so maybe it isn’t for everyone, but the classic stories of old, are always fun—and even more fun to find new ways to explore this classic genre. We can make the story modern-day, or historical.
    • This genre is old hat, and the sky is often the limit. Although, it may be a tough sell to get me interested in creating a story for this genre right now, don't be afraid to pitch your idea anyway. I have written for this genre in all its forms: high, low, dark, modern, and everything in between.

      For modern fantasy

      werewolves are a sure bet, and I have two plot ideas.
      I would also be willing to consider a story involving vampires (World of Darkness).

      Fandoms - Dragon Age, Skyrim (original characters only)

      Note - As stated above, I do not have time for comprehensive world building.
    • For now, this a place-holder. While I enjoy these genres, I am not inspired at this time. Stay tuned!


    Hopefully I covered everything! If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask!

    If you're interested in pursuing a story, feel free to PM or post here. (I would ask for PMs only, but so many people ignore that. I give up. Do as you will. ♥ )
