ABOUT ME You may have previously seen my one x one search thread, which has basically all of the same information in it. The difference is that I am now specifically interested in finding one or two explicitly libertine roleplays. That doesn't mean I'm doing away with my desire for good plots, just that I want a couple of roleplays that we go into expecting adult content to manifest. THE KINKY STUFF I don't like furries. I don't like toilet play or vore. I REALLY FUCKING HATE characters whose only personality trait is being submissive. I like BDSM roleplaying, but I don't believe for a single second that most submissives are so submissive that their entire lives revolve around being submissive to anyone and everyone (did I say submissive a lot? That's because these characters say it ALL THE FUCKING TIME). I'm happy to play a dominant character to your submissive, IF your character is a well-rounded individual with character traits and some degree of autonomy. MY FAVORITE KIND OF LIBERTINE ROLEPLAY is dominant x dominant. I like the type of relationship in which both parties are fighting for control. If you'd be willing to do something that has that dynamic with me, I'd be so stoked. This is especially fun as MxM and MxF but I'm cool with whatever. I don't tend to use play-bys. I don't get them when I read books, so I don't understand why a roleplay would be any different. I find that play-bys tend to be models and actors, who are beautiful perfect people with no physical flaws, which to me is not reflective of most characters. That said, if you ask me for one, I will spend hours trying to decide on exactly the right person, and I will give you an image and their name in case you want more pictures. I will not use illustrations. I will not use anime. I prefer that you don't either, especially if an "accurate image" of your character is what you're going for when you use them. Into some kinky shit? Let me know. I recently learned that cannibalism squicks me out, a fact of which I was not previously aware. I don't have limits in terms of sex and gore, but apparently cannibalism is where my laissez-faire attitude ends. Finally, I play both male and female (and all combinations of both), but for the love of all that is holy, please be a big kid and learn to be flexible. Men and women aren't so different that you can write an incredible female character, but only shitty men. I have a big problem with self-insertion and people who think that in a world with fairies and elves, only white people are plausible as characters. ABOUT YOU First off, I will ask for a sample. No offense; I've been really impressed by the quality of writing around here, but it's important we both know we're compatible so that we can get the most out of our experience. I'm happy to provide one as well, or you can check out the one in my profile. I consider myself an advanced writer. You should feel equally confident about your writing. My responses typically aren't shorter than 4 or 5 solid paragraphs unless there's nothing to work with, in which case we won't last very long anyway. Please use proper punctuation, spelling, and grammar, and try to do more than just make your posts functional and technically correct. I like posts that are substantial, posts that contain actual effort with regards to prose and art. I don't want to write about how character A gets to point B. I want to write a real story with someone else. I will reciprocate all of the above, I promise. ABOUT THE GENRES I love fandoms but don't typically do original characters (with the exception of post-canon worlds; I could be persuaded to do children of canons, etc.). I find that more often than not they are mere inserts of their writer - and I'm not exempting myself from that tendency. I'm willing to do almost any genre provided my partner is as committed to quality of writing as I am. Below are a few of my favorites. Please bear in mind that I lost most of my roleplay stuff in the years that I wasn't RPing. What's listed is what I remember, NOT all I'll do. I don't have any prewritten intros and only a couple of plots - I'd LOVE to hear yours and create new ones! Without further ado.... FANDOMS Harry Potter (Marauders Era/Hogwarts Trio Era/Post BoH) Hunger Games Tamora Pierce (literally anything - I've read every book except the Bloodhound series) Game of Thrones iZombie Men in Black Disney (maybe...I hate the princesses but a good plot could fix it.) Anita Blake True Blood Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children Shadowhunters (books, not show or movie) Chaos Walking trilogy Please suggest more! My memory is terrible. OTHERS Modern Western (I have a sort-of plot) Old Western FBI Agents Circus (modern or historical - can be combined with fantasy) Pirates (If you've read LA Meyer's Bloody Jack series, we'll have a good time) Post-Apocalyptic/Dystopian Rebels (I've got a tiny baby plot for this) Horror/Mystery/Thriller Deep South Voodoo (supernatural beings - I have a sort-of plot) Mythology (Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Indian, Native American) Fairy Tales (the classics) Ancient Gods (Greek, Roman, Celtic, Indian, Egyptian) Medieval Fantasy (I have another plot I'd like to expand on) One Thousand and One Nights (Scheherazade x Sultan) Supernatural Beings (werewolves, witches, vampires, etc.) SOME FINAL THOUGHTS I swear I'm not an asshole, though it may seem that way sometimes. Unfortunately, I've been doing this a really long time, and have long found that unless I am crystal-clear about my intentions and desires, I (and potential partners) end up very frustrated. I want to enjoy my roleplays; the more I like them, the better I am at writing you a detailed, interesting post that furthers the plot. I hope you can understand that. Please know that I'm not judging anyone; I understand the differences in styles and skill level that are inherent to roleplaying. I just want to make sure we're compatible before we end up in a situation where we've bored ourselves to death, or gotten angry at one another.
