Bonjour, Iwaku, je m'apelle April! That's about all the French I know, please don't speak to me in French. 0_0 Silliness aside, I was wondering if there is any interest at all for a screenplay-format role play. I know, when you cut away the introspection, the detailed descriptions, all that narrative, then you're left with... dialogue. Which, when stripped back in such a way can, indeed, sound eerily like I'm proposing some fancy, schmancy version of a one-liner RP. Not the case, mes amis. Not the case. And not that there's anything wrong with one-liners! But, they're not my cup of tea. What I am getting at is working on the showing aspect of story-telling, and not the, well, telling. When you write a script (for a play, TV show, movie, etc.), you let the characters' actions and words speak for themselves, because you have a limited time frame to get the point across. So, what I'd like to try is an RP formatted like a screenplay. It'll be fun, guys! Something light (atmospherically and mentally), but creatively challenging. If none-a-ya'll are keen to actually try the RP, no worries. I'd love to open a discussion thread elsewhere to discuss the merits (and drawbacks) of unconventional role plays such as this one. Cuz I'm a dork. XD If, mercifully, someone is game, here are some topics I'd be interested in pursuing for this Very Special Role Play: Slice-of-Life (with dashes of romance, well-timed humor, poorly-timed words, and spiced with drama) Roommates (twenty-somethings or college, perhaps) ♥ Co-workers (allies, frenemies, rivals) ♥ Coffee Shop/Book Shop Frequenters Fantasy (this may be more challenging) Something fairy tale-inspired? Dragon Domesticated magic ♥ Sci-Fi (not big into portraying alien races, but love the idea of space and other physical worlds) Life in orbit (a different take on a workplace environment, but with exciting possibilities) ♥ Galactic explorers (you guys seen Interstellar? A-mazing.) So, thoughts? Takers? Please don't throw rocks at me.
