  1. Ladies, gentlemen, or whoever you may identify as,


    What can be expected of me?
    - I’m open to chatting anytime, be it about our plot or anything else.
    - I won’t rush you, ever. Take all the time you need.
    - My grammar is competent and my style versatile. (I can send a writing sample upon request)
    - My posts tend to be on the long side. If that’s a problem, I’ll shorten them. If you enjoy length (*cough*), you should be given plenty.
    - Diversity in characters, moods, style - as well as in romance, gender, sexualities.
    - I can't think of a single genre which I wouldn't be willing to explore given an interesting plot.
    - Sometimes I draw stuff​

    What would I expect from you?
    - Politeness, communication and respect.
    - No rushing, please. This is a hobby, not a job.
    - You to be able to play characters of different genders, sexualities, ethnicities, body types (having a preference is fine, I have some too, but if you can only play - say - straight white females, I don’t think we’ll get along)
    - You to tell me when I do something you don't like, or if you’re uncomfortable with where the story is going.
    - I'd rather you were an adult. 16+ at the very least. I'm sure you're a wonderful person and am not questioning your maturity, it would just make me feel awkward.
    - Apart from that, just be a decent human being and we should be cool​

    To let you know what I'm about.​

    Things that I like: (open)

    • Character Development
    • Conflicts (internal, such as dilemmas, or between characters)
    • Mental breakdowns, tragedies, angst
    • Hurt/Comfort
    • Teasing, people being loving assholes.
    • Friendships, fraternal bonds.
    • Love in general, though it is never mandatory. Passion.
    • Complex relationships & dynamics, ambiguity
    • Sexual tension, smut (adult members only & all Iwaku rules apply)
    • Use of the environment as symbolism, such as in dream worlds (symbolism reflecting the characters' psychology) or dystopias, tyrannic societies (reflecting our own society, human nature...)
    • World-building
    • Exploration
    • Investigations (e.g criminal)
    • Mysteries, enigmas, having a long-term plot/mystery in the background of smaller sub-plots
    • Grey morals. I can’t stress this enough.
    • SCIENCE. SPACE. I’m a nerd. forgive me.
    • Forbidden love (when well done)
    • Age gaps
    • Opposites
    • Political games, power play (think House of Card, Dangerous Liaisons or GoT)
    • Characters that are outside the societal norm of perfection and normality (queer, poc, non-binary, not standardly pretty or thin, etc)
    Things that I nope: (open)

    • Incest
    • Rape between our characters
    • Recreational drug usage (I know it’s a part of reality, but I can’t. Alcohol is ok in certain cases, discuss it with me)
    • Self-insertion
    • Overly-powerful characters
    • Stereotypes
    • Rhythms that stagnate, are too slow, or too fast-paced
    • Lack of balance between characters. Should smut ensue (18+), I'm ok with dom/sub dynamics in the bedroom, but our characters have to be equal matches outside.
    • Canon x OC
    • Furries. Ponies. Stuff. Fantastic creatures are ok. But you know what I’m talking about. No.


    I used to develop proper plots here, but it didn't turn out to be the best approach after all.
    Honestly, what I prefer is brainstorming from scratch. It works better. But I know a prompt can be useful to start off - so here we go.

    AxB prompts (open)

    Do not hesitate to mix some together or with story prompts.​
    Not fond of AxB, to be honest, but it's efficient.

    • Criminal Investigator x Lawyer
    • Musician x Lyricist/muse
    • Composer x Dancer Ø
    • Famous author x Young film maker Ø
    • Professor x PhD student
    • Pretentious down to earth genius x dreamy artist with confidence issues Ø

    • Pirate x Captured Amiral (sea or space)
    • Pirate x Explorer (sea or space)

    Story Prompts (open)

    • Criminal investigations in unusual time period/universes. (e.g - athenian crime solving, space detectives)

    • Creative crimes by evil masterminds (with a cause, or not). Ø

    • A bored, cynical, sarcastic spell-maker who's been around for a couple thousands years meets a wannabe witch/wizard with a surprising potential. Ø

    • Childhood friends breaking each other's heart.

    • QUESTS.

    • Escaping from somewhere with an extremely efficient and complex security.

    • Two people who do not speak a word of the same language having to live/travel together. Ø

    • The building of a polyamory relationship with all the complicated feelings that go with it. Ø

    • A single father who had to give up on his dreams. Ø

    • (Inspired by The Lobster) In a country where being adult and single is illegal and violently repressed, two supposedly aromantic best friends pretend to be a couple. But one day, one of them falls in love with a third party.

    • A world where humans are missing an ability - could be one of the five senses, the power to feel emotions, being sensitive to art/beauty... - which your character suddenly acquires.

    • Post-apocalypse of any kind: humanity and its culture have been practically wiped out, and generations later, our characters go to explore the world.

    • Overthrowing a tyrannic government is always a go for me.

    • Humanity discovers a new planet that inhabits life for the first time, your character is an astronaut and mine an indigene. (Not a romantic plot) Or they're both astronauts. (possibly romantic)

    • Antic Greece
    • Roman Republic Ø
    • Medieval Japan
    • Pre-USSR Russia
    • 19th century Europe
    • American Civil War
    • WW1 battlefields (Europe, colonies, at sea)
    • WW2 French occupation Ø
    • The American 20s-50s Ø

    Note that in my mind, none of the characters mentioned below are dead. Or separated. Or dead and separated.

  2. I'm very interested in roleplaying with you. If you are still searching I could be some one you could partner up with. Just pm me if you are still interested in finding a partner. Thank you for your time and have a great Day/Night
  3. Still looking! Especially for some FxF or MxF. (although MxM is my guilty pleasure so you could probably still convince me with a good plot)
  4. "A single father who had to give up on his dreams."
    "Greek Mythology."
    "Game of Thrones."
    (A human/AI plot I have?)

    I'm interested in these! PM me if you still have openings, my dear.
  5. Sent!

    Still looking for one more. Please send me a PM if you're interested.
