Hello! It's been a really long time since I've cast some lines out to see if I've got any takers - I hope to meet some of you all, and get a good story rolling. :) I've been RP-ing for a long while now, but with the isolation and all, I've suddenly got more time than I know what to do with.
I'm in the Mountain Standard Timezone, and can usually post on a daily basis. I can do at least one post a day, or more, depending on how the days go. But before we get to the meat of things, I'd like to outline some boundaries and expectations.
Boundaries & Expectations
- No Smut: I will not be writing detailed sex scenes, sorry! Characters can totally have sex as part of their development, but I prefer to use the Fade In/Out method. Of course, I know part of the fun is the whole Will-They-Won't-They back and forth, so I'm happy to play through that, but once things starting going for real, I'll have to fade out.
- Post Length: Definitely no one-liners for me. Consider something around low-Advanced, high-Casual level. I would prefer chunkier posts (~3 paragraphs on average), but I understand that sometimes it's not possible. I usually match whatever my partners give me, but I have been known to get really carried away sometimes (multi-page long posts lmao) - so flexibility is important! And on that note...
- Flexibility: I have no preference in playing whichever gender, but I do value variety - so if the story requires multiple characters, I would like to have the freedom of choosing what gender I would like all my characters to be, rather than be restricted to one or the other.
- Romance: Will be necessary for this specific idea - sorry! Please note I'd prefer MxF pairings.
Note, writing samples are available on request! The stuff on my profile is really old as I really only ever RP through PMs.
And that's about it! If anything else crops up, I will be certain to let you know as we go along - but this is a good starting point. Now, onto the fun stuff!
I've got a specific hankering, but no specific plot in mind. This was born out of a recent obsession around Final Fantasy 7 - but, big warning, I've never actually played...any of the games. I've just spent too much time watching gameplay and everything. The main inspiration is Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children. Cloud and Tifa's entire relationship dynamic? chef's kiss
I haven't RP'd canon characters...ever, I don't think. But I'm willing to try if there's a willing (and patient) partner out there! Cloud/Tifa is consuming my heart and soul so I promise I'll work hard!
Otherwise, I'm also super down for trying to come up with our own story. While I adore the characters, I just really want to write something that features the traits of their relationship. And maybe that cyberpunk future dystopia-esque, fantasy-esque setting too! Childhood Friends
I know this is hard to do, as there's a lot of history to establish, but let's work it out! Maybe play out some of their history before getting started? Slow Burn
Where every word, every intonation, every glance or every touch is sweet pain. There's something to be said about a relationship that builds gradually over time, that comes from familiarity and knowing the other person right down to the core. I've never done a proper slow burn before, but I live for the agony of the tension that just builds and builds. Plus the pay-off is always worth it. I know I'll fawn over every minute detail.Action
Kind of adds to the above. Nothing brings people closer than being badass combat buddies. I love the camaraderie. The "I'll always have your back". The drama, the suspense, the injury, the angst! Swords, guns, fists, magic - anything will do.Shared Trauma
I'm not sure what I have in mind with this, I just know that shared angst is something special. It can be a personal trauma, or a big cataclysmic event, or both? We'd have to work it out.Some Other Stuff
This is basically just bits and pieces that aren't necessary or seem pretty 'late-game'.
The Advent Children inspiration shines here. There, it was their (basically) adopted children. Their small, broken but found, family and fighting to protect it. I think there's a lot of heart and levity here, like making the most of a shitty situation. But like I said, probably won't crop up until way later, but a nice thought nonetheless.
And that's all! As you can see, I've only got themes, nothing concrete, but I love plot/world building with my partners. So if you're interested...let's chat! :)
