First Partner Request... let's see how this goes... o_o I usually just pm people. Since these searches seem to have very mixed results, I made a checklist-thing detailing my style and preferences very clearly for you to inspect! Read the list. Read my RP resume. Ask questions! Someone told me that the list was a little scary - but I hope it doesn't come across too much as this. D: I am just giving you all I can so you can judge me fully to see if I match whatever you're looking for in a partner. I also don't expect to get 100% matches - that would be unrealistic. Tell me the differences and we will talk! Anyway, let's just see where this goes? ^_^; ---------------- POST LENGTH Dialogue Posts: (1) - (3) short paragraphs "Solo" Posts*: (3) - (8) paragraphs - depends on partner and moment *I consider a "solo post" to be when your character(s) go off and experience a scene on their own, without any other player's characters interfering. The entire scene is under your control. WRITING STYLE (x) I spend most of the post on my character's emotions. () I spend most of the post on my character's observations. () I spend most of the post on physical descriptions (character or setting) (x) I spend most of the post on actions and/or dialogue. (depends on post) DETAIL () Love it! (x) Only the required details - I do not want to sift through flowers for content. () Minimalism all the way! SHOWING VS. TELLING (75)% Showing, (25)% Telling (x) I am trying to improve this ratio. (hopefully to 100% - 0%!) RP PHILOSOPHIES (checked only those that apply strongly) () It is a way to unwind and escape after a stressful or tiring day. () It is the creation of a collaborative story. () It is a game people play with each other. (x) It should be readable - consistency and good flow are key. () RPs exist for the players, not an audience. () Characters serve the story. (x) The story serves the characters. (x) I write my own fiction and sometimes I use RP to develop character and brainstorm plot. (x) I use it as practice to improve my writing skill. CHARACTER QUANTITY (checked all that applied) Main character = you play their thoughts and actions Side character = recurring, possibly important, but you write only their actions. NPC = usually insignificant, you play only their actions, and both/all rpers can control them. (x) I prefer only playing one main character. (x) I am comfortable playing 2-4 main characters. (the fewer the better; can handle up to 3) () I am comfortable playing more than 5 main characters. () I prefer no side characters. (x) I am comfortable playing 1-4 side characters. () I am comfortable playing more than 5 side characters. () I prefer as few npcs as possible. (x) I don't care how many npcs there are. CRITICISM (x) I am eager to receive all the criticism you can give me. () I will take criticsm to improve my writing, but please do not overdo it as I can be sensitive. () If I want criticism, I will ask for it. () I am here to roleplay just for fun. I do not want criticism. OOC ACTIVITY: () Only for plot discussions. () At least daily correspondence. (x) Be my new friend! Let's chat! IC ACTIVITY (x) I am busy but I am addicted to Iwaku so I will try anyway. (x) I am busy but I make an effort to drop by consistently. () I am busy and sometimes die for long periods of time, but I will come back. (x) Sometimes I lose my muse, but this is never permanent. () Sometimes I lose my muse, and this may be problematic. TENACITY / PATIENCE (check any that apply) (x) I very, very, rarely quit rps. () I try my best not to quit rps. () I appreciate patient partners that can wait. () I will quit rps that have been completely silent for (max) days/weeks/months. (x) I will wait indefinitely for the return of a good partner. () I sometimes regretfully quit rps due to real-life issues. ROMANCE () Required () Preferred (x) Only if Natural () No. SEX () Required () Preferred (x) No NSFW (fade to black; brief/vague descriptions or summaries) () All my characters are asexual. OPEN ENDED QUESTIONS Make a list of all your RP pet peeves: -Careless posts/oversimplified posts (there is a fine line between minimalism and carelessness... but I do like minimalism so things get finicky here....) -100% Passive characters -Passive Posts -Long disappearences without notice. -Reluctance to edit -Careless reading (people that encourage showing over telling - a perfectly valid writing tip that I love, fail to mention that sometimes in the context of RP, where each piece of writing is relatively short - that discreet showing is easily missed by a careless reader. >_< ) - Guessing / assuming instead of asking when something unclear arises (doesn't matter whose fault it might have been - if IC communication is awkward, the story usually falls apart.) - Two characters having multiple conversations at the same time. I tolerate this but... ehhh can we not. - Godmodding, hijacking, etc Make a list of all your RP-buddy candies (not plot candies! RP buddy candies!) -Active OOC banter; possibly skype messages -Friendly Debates are always welcome! -PLOTTING! ALL THE PLOTTING! (adorned with a little bit of excited squealing >.>) -A delicate touch of creative sadism. -A willingness to teach and/or learn (I would absolutely love a mentor ^_^) Describe your ideal RP partner in less than 3 sentences. -Someone that needs to write in order to feel fully alive ; someone that feels their characters just as much as they analyse them ; someone that writes as a reader - and all this while fluttering playfully in the OOC. ;P LINKS TO MY PREVIOUS/CURRENT RPS (and can I have a few links to yours please? <3) https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/sppa-chronicles-sarre-nix.77141/ https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/those-who-beat-the-flames-ic-closed.73543/ (my posts are not usually that long - it just sort of happened because there were weeks between posts.) ---------------- So yes... there it is. As much about my personal RP style as I could think of. If there is anything else you would like to know, ask. We can have a conversation without starting an rp. ^_^ Also, if you'd like the empty form for personal use, it's here: https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/roleplay-resume-expansion.89496/ Will be edited as I get feedback.
