  1. I'mma be real with y'all, I don't know anything about BB Code. I've been out of the game a while, so apologies for this ugliness. Please don't let it scare you away! I promise the content is good.


    My name is Pheebs, short for Phoebe, but you can call me whatever you want. Starbucks spells my name Fibi, so if you can come up with something more creative, I'll be very impressed. I'm 24 and I live in California - I work in theatre but I also train horses a little and give horseback riding lessons to squirts who aren't yet aware of what an expensive and painful hobby it can be. The last couple of years, I've been working for Cirque du Soleil, touring, and working on cruise ships. I'm on extended vacation now but looking to make a permanent career change so I've got a lot of time on my hands.

    When it comes to roleplaying, I should be upfront about saying that I'm a old veteran and I haven't been in the game for a few years (see above re: touring). I roleplayed from the ages of 13 to about 19 or 20 on websites ranging from Neopets to Invisionfree boards to weird random sites in the corners of the dark Internet. I LOVE to write. That's why I started roleplaying, and that's why I'm back. I'm not familiar with some of the new trends I've been noticing - using play-bys, making forms to describe my characters, etc. - so I'm going to have to take a page out of your grandpa's book and say I'd prefer the old-fashioned way.

    I have no limits when it comes to sex, violence, or language. Gore is not my favorite thing, but I'm a grown-up, and if it's integral to the story, I can deal. I generally avoid plots that are simply Person A x Person B because I don't like to just set up our characters to fall in love and leave it at that. I like plots that create worlds, or involve intricate plot details.

    EDIT: I am cool with any plot becoming libertine (with other adults). In fact, I really like it when that happens, provided it develops throughout the plot.


    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 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.

    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....

    Harry Potter (Marauders Era/Hogwarts Trio Era/Post BoH)
    Hunger Games
    Game of Thrones
    Men in Black
    Disney (maybe...I hate the princesses but a good plot could fix it.)

    Anita Blake
    True Blood
    Chaos Walking trilogy

    Please suggest more! My memory is terrible.

    Modern Western (I have a sort-of plot)
    Old Western
    FBI Agents
    Dystopian Rebels (I've got a tiny baby plot for this)

    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.)

  2. EDIT: I'm totally cool with libertine. I didn't realize there was a separate section. Do I need to post both places?

  3. Hi there!

    Dystopian rebels and post apocalypse caught my eye. :) I like more sci fi/modern themes, so if it goes more this way (Fallout, Walking Dead, WWIII, alien/ rogue AI invasion ) I think we can work something out. The sample is in my info tab.

  4. Updated genres!
  5. If you have plots that you want/prefer to get smutty, then yes, we prefer you advertise them separately in the Libertine section!

    If you don't have any of that description, then it's okay to stay here, but you might want to include a note that you're open to Libertine with other members of your age group.

    The Libertine/Liberteen sections are separated from general requests so that members of one age group can't view the requests of the other. This helps to prevent people from knowingly or mistakenly crossing the age groups (Big no-no!)

  6. What do you think about an FBI/CIA/NSA agent interacting with a terrorist? Perhaps the roleplay would start a few years into the chase or maybe once the offending party has been captured?

    Sample is in my information tab, linked below. It's an introduction to a fantasy roleplay.

  7. Actually, I have a plot that I think we could incorporate that into rather nicely. PM me?
  8. Hello! I'm rather interested in:

    Mythology (Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Indian, Native American)
    Ancient Gods (Greek, Roman, Celtic, Indian, Egyptian)
    ^Prefer Egyptian and Greek
    Medieval Fantasy (I have another plot I'd like to expand on).
  9. Hey!

    I have no plot for the gods whatsoever, other than that I'm pretty knowledgeable about many different sets of mythology. I thought it would be fun to do a roleplay involving mythological figures, but I don't have even an inkling of a plot. If you do, great! If not, I'm sure we can figure something out.

    Shoot me a PM and I"ll be happy to send along my MF plot.
