Welcome to my search thread. Obviously, I am looking for someone to play the male main in stories we write together, considering where I've placed the thread, but I've found it never hurts to restate the obvious. That being said: If interested in playing with me, please send me a PM. I won't respond to posts here in the thread, mostly because I already know from your response that you're not the kind of reader I'm looking for. Also, please try to engage in meaningful conversation. PMs that don't say anything will probably be ignored. Spoiler: What I'm Looking For In a Partner I consider myself an advanced player. Call it literate/prestige/whatever, but it's the level I enjoy playing at, and as such, that is the level at which I wish to play. What I want from you: Someone who is into long-term games. If you're only going to play for a few hours after I've put in a ton of time with world building and characters, we're not going to get along. Someone who will PM me with more than "I want to RP with you" or "Hi". This tells me nothing. I don't like nothing. Someone who is into proper grammar and spelling. I know we're all human and we all make mistakes. I just want someone who is going to try. I won't put up with constant misspellings, poor grammar, or misuse of capital letters and punctuation. Someone who likes to craft a story: this means so many things. Someone who likes to write. Give me the words. Less than three paragraphs a post isn't going to cut it for me. Someone who likes to read (being told my post is too long to read is automatically going to make me want to quit). Someone who won't expect me to push the story along. We're partners, not just me leading you. Do something. DO SOMETHING. Someone who will communicate with me. I can't fix what's broken if we don't talk about it. I also won't sit around waiting for you to post if you go on vacation without telling me. I'll just bump you once, then consider our game over. Someone who won't lie to me. Don't tell me you're too busy for our game then bump your search thread a few minutes later. I'll see that and I'll know you're a liar. I hate this. Just be honest. I'll be sad but I'll not freak out about it. Someone who will post frequently. If I'm waiting longer than a week for a post, I'll lose interest and end the game. Someone who won't catfish me. Don't contact me if you'll never respond again. It wastes both our time. Spoiler: What I'm Looking For In a Game What I look for in a game is generally pretty simple. Romance - I love romance. This doesn't necessarily mean smut, mind you, but I'm not looking for friendships or mentor/mentee relationships or family stories. Action - Slice of life is a possibility only if it has something happening. I want dangerous situations and something happening in the game. Surprises - I love reading something and going "What the hell just happened?!" Urban fantasy - This is my favorite genre, and most of my plots are this kind of story. More plot than porn. I am talking 80/20 plot ratio. Spoiler: Absolute No-Nos These are things that will get me to end a role play immediately, or will end our planning. Non-con/dubious-con of any kind OOC flirting or any kind of gross/rapey behavior. I'm not a flirty person and it will creep me out. Abuse in an established relationship Unnecessary hypersexualization of my character - This seriously pisses me off. Slave roleplays of any kind Furries (just not my thing) Bestiality Anything against site rules Incest Pain Body fluids Bathroom play Sexual gratification from pregnancy Gaping Weird swelling or growth Macro/micro Anything with a hentai niche category Telling me what kind of character to play/trying to assign me an appearance based on who you like Manic pixie dream girl character type Playing Harley Quinn or Catwoman Spoiler: Plot Ideas Okay, if you've made it this far without leaving, yay! So here are plot ideas that I'm interested in playing. Unless based on pre-existing works, I claim all copyright to these ideas, and I'll have something to say about it if I see you stealing the ideas for your own games. A Soldier's Vow: You are a high ranking member of the local mob. While at a meeting, you discover that you've been betrayed, and you're about to die when someone clunks the guy on the back of the head, saving your life. You make a promise to fulfill this woman's dream in repayment of what she's done for you, and she has the oddest wish. She wants to get married. So you do the best you can. You propose. Slice of life, action, violence. ABO Universe: I have a couple plots for an ABO human universe. I will discuss them, but only with folks who are willing to play an Alpha. King of the Vampires: An arranged marriage story. Set in a modern world where vampires have taken over parts of the world. A vampire king decides to make peace with his human neighbors through a marriage of alliance. Would also be transferable to a dragons-who-take-human-form story. On Call: Another mafia-centric story. I know, I know. I just finished watching Lilyhammer, give me a break. Anyway, a story about a mob boss who ends up in the failing clinic of a struggling young doctor. She patches him up, and he decides he needs a full time doctor on call. We Don't Belong Together: An opposites attract romance in a futuristic dystopia. Energy is currency in the future, and a gang leader who specializes in dealing power meets a young woman who is definitely not the kind of woman he normally meets. But they're drawn together. Romance, action, and slice of life. Trapped and Tapped: You are a member of an elite military squad that has just finished taking out one of the bases of a terrorist organization. A sudden blizzard forces you to take shelter in a cabin, where you discover the injured assassin Foxglove, whom you and the terrorists thought died in the base. Now you're trapped with her, though she swears she faked her own death to leave and start a new life alone. Action, romance, adventure. (Would be a good vehicle for someone who wants to play a SHIELD agent ala MCU.) Aren't You That Guy Who Was in That Thing? - An actor on location for a movie is enjoying the foreign city when he comes across a young woman being attacked. He chases them off, and while she thanks him, she sends him a letter through his agent. This begins an old-fashioned relationship through letters, until he decides that he wants to be with her. Romance, slice of life, and maybe a little action. In the vein of the bad boy thing: Looking for someone to play a dangerous guy (assassin, vampire, etc.) who wakes up handcuffed to a young woman because someone wants him to kill her. Romance, adventure, horror, etc for this one. Want to be Snake Eyes from GI Joe? Looking to write an adventure/romance with him and a scientist type of character. Feeling a need for some Nightwing. Want to play Dick Grayson? I would love to work out something with Dick and a character of my own who is a police sketch artist. Want to be the Winter Soldier? Yeah, I want to write something with him. Time Travel Romance - Just a genre, I know, but I'm looking for something like a WWII wakes up in modern day in the same room as the woman archiving newsreel footage of him, or a ghost haunting a castle falls in love with the living owner and she has to travel back in time to save him from dying the first time. Warbringer: A modern day urban fantasy story set in the backdrop of a gritty fictional city and a demonic underworld. A demon slayer (your character) comes across a young woman in the demon world which he frees because she's obviously an innocent. What he doesn't know is that she is a Warbringer, a direct descendant of Helen of Troy, and has the ability to plunge the human and demon worlds into chaos and bloody war. It is up to the demon slayer to keep her from the hands of those who want to kill her, as well as those who would control her. Would be a good vehicle for those who want to play Dante from DmC. Castlevania: Seen the Netflix series? Holy balls is it good. I'd love to do something with it. Looking for a bad boy ready to go good. Have a villain you like to play? Is he hot? Let's work that shit out. Ever read the manga Mars? I want to write this as a role play. Except probably college age. Love triangle - This has some urban fantasy to it. Admittedly looking for someone to play both gents. In the crummy part of the city, a ballerina has caught the eye of a gang lord. But she's much more interested in her mysterious new neighbor who has a supernatural secret. Would super love to find a Riddick. Was watching Dark Fury last night. I want to write something based on the Tales From the Crypt: Demon Knight movie. It takes place in the world of the movie, and the male character would be the keyholder. It's a story I'd love to have input on. I've got a couple of plots for some dark, gritty vampire hunter stories, so if you want to be a vampire slayer, hit me up. Ideas include: A long standing enemy has left his stronghold unprotected. You, a vampire slayer who wants to rid the world of a cruel child vampire, decide to go inside, to attack from within. But you find a strange room locked away in the deepest parts of the house. The room itself is made for a princess, and inside is a human woman who has been locked away for over a decade. You rescue her, but have to protect her in a world where vampires are now the ruling class and vampire slayers have gone underground. You've been hired by a vampire to capture a woman and bring her back to the vampire, who is known for being particularly horrible. As you watch her, there's no way you can turn her in for the bounty, whether it's just because you can tell she's a good person, or because you have a sneaking suspicion that you might get the shaft yourself when you do turn her in. Your final decision is to kidnap her and keep her hostage in order to have time to plan a getaway for the both of you. But where can you go that the long fingers of a very old vampire cannot reach? Your attempt to clean out a vampire nest is not going well, until another vampire hunter arrives. She is obviously not professionally trained, but she's better than other professional members of the guild. When all is said and done, she's saved your life, and is set to disappear until you stop her, offer her sponsorship in the guild. She flees, not willing to talk about it any more, but she's still around, joining raids, fighting for something other than herself. Someone started plotting this with me then disappeared, but it was Highlander world set during WWII. Looking for an Immortal with a scary German arch nemesis. Apply within. I'd love to hear what you want to do. Want to play a fallen angel trying to get back into Heaven? Want to be a vicious gang member who finds someone worth being nice to? I'm open to hearing what you're looking for, too. I might not know I want it until I hear it. There we go, my finished thread! Again, if interested, please PM me, do not post here.
