    Right, now that I got your attention...

    'Sup, hi, hello, good day, or whatever form of greeting you'd like to use! My username is Lady Bernkastel, but you can call me Bernie, Lady B, just B, or anything you fancy. Alright, not anything, but you get my point... I've been kinda absent on the roleplaying scene for a while now due to personal reasons, but now I feel like picking things up again. I used to mostly participate in group roleplays before, but to switch it up, I've decided to go for 1x1's this time around.

    With introductions out of the way, let's move onto plot ideas! Or, perhaps not quite yet... First, some requirements I'd like you to meet, or accept, as my partner! Just a few simple items that will ensure that both me and you, as my potential partner, can enjoy our time RP'ing together to the fullest.

    • I'd prefer it if my partner was over 18 years old. This isn't really a requirement, I just know that I work best with people above a certain age. Still, if you're under 18 and I think we would be compatible partners, your age won't matter. Similarly, if you're older than 18 but I don't think we're compatible, your age doesn't give you a leg up.
    • I would like my partner to be a law abiding citizen of Iwaku. This means following site regulations, respecting other members, and not being prone to stirring shit.
    • I would like my partner to be an active member of Iwaku of some time. That you're actively participating in forum activities lets me know that you won't just disappear on me all of a sudden. Or at least make the matter less likely.
    • My partner must be able to write at an adept level. A few grammatical and spelling errors here and there doesn't matter, I mean I'm not perfect and I'm sure I've made more than a few in just these few passages alone. It's important because I need to have synergy between me and my partner, in the sense that we're able to understand each others writing and play off of each other.​
    • I'm a busy woman! I have my hands full with school, so sometimes I'll be lacking in posts for a week or two. If that's the case, I hope you'll be understanding as my partner and not bug me every single day about it. Poking me once in a while to make sure I'm still alive is perfectly fine, though. In return, I'll be accepting of you if you ever fall into a slump.~​
    • Note that none of these plots have the purpose of starting a romance between any of our characters. I'm not writing romancing off completely, it could still be present to some extent if it adds to the story, but it shouldn't take center stage.​
    • Note that all of these plots, with a few exceptions, involve 100% original characters. They will take place in universes where canon characters either don't exist, or aren't present.​
    Alright, I think that's it... Now we can finally move onto the fun part! If any of the plots strike you as interesting, put up a reply and I'll see if I think we're compatible. If I don't, please don't take it personally. With that, take a look at my plotzzzzz:
    Sailor Moon AU plot idea
    After the great explosion that gave birth to the universe, matter was lunged through the infinity of space creating the lumps of mass that would later be referred to as stars and planets. The mysterious energy that had caused the explosion also scattered, but the amount left at the center of it all amassed and solidified, forming a crystal radiating a golden glow.

    The crystal found and attached itself to the nearest planet, and sparked a reaction which led to the dawn of life.

    As time passed, different forms of life evolved, and eventually a race came along that possessed the power of intelligence.

    Utilizing their intelligence, the race found a way to harness the magic of the crystal that created them, and using it, they altered the very surface of the planet, allowing them to thrive and prosper.

    The one who had learned the first secrets of the crystal, a man named Sol, unified their race and inaugurated himself and his lineage as the royal family, naming their kingdom 'Gold Millennium', the land and planet they lived on 'Sol' (after himself), and he named their magical crown jewel the
    'Gold Millennium Crystal'.

    More time came to pass, generations came and went, and the royal family learned yet another way to use the power of the Gold Millennium Crystal. They managed to attract nearby planets, pulling them into a steady orbit around Sol, and by radiating warmth and magic to those planets they were able to spread life to them as well.

    A large delegation of people from Sol were sent together with a descendant of the first king Sol as leaders to populate the new planets, and the planets were named after the descendant who took it upon themself to stipulate rule over the land.

    Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and finally, Tellus. However, as Tellus and his delegation was journeying to the preadolescent planet, a severe accident struck their spacecraft, and they were lost. As such, no new attempts were made to populate the planet, with the memory of such a terrible loss still fresh in peoples minds.

    The societies that developed on the planets of course adapted most of the culture from Sol, but the unique skillsets and ways of thinking brought by each descendant left their mark, which affected politics, production, and every day life on the planets. Because of their differences, some tension arose between them and the mother planet. To alleviate this, a special council was formed on Sol, in which ambassadors, descendants of the princes and princesses who had first set out for the planets participated and carried their peoples voices in matters of trade and other politics. This allegience between the planets was dubbed the Solar System.

    And so things moved along in peace, until one day, an event came to pass that would lead to the destruction of the Gold Millennium.

    Suddenly, without any forewarning, the monarch of Sol, Queen Helios, was contacted by an ambassador of a planet named Pandora, asking for permission to join the gravitational pull of the Gold Millennium Crystal. Before that day, no one had even imagined life to exist outside the warmth of the Gold Millennium Crystal, so when a race so developed and similar to the one originated on Sol asked to join them, a certain suspicion arose. But, perhaps due to Queen Helios's kindness and curiosity, they were allowed to orbit around Sol, though full connection wasn't established.

    The ambassador from Pandora was sent to partake in the parliament on Sol, where they grew to become respected and valued. So when the ambassador asked if a convoy of ships with students from Pandora could come and observe the Gold Millenium Crystal first hand, no one objected. However, it had all been a ruse to disguise the real purpose of the convoy. Instead of students, the ships transported trained soldiers, with the mission to capture the Gold Millennium Crystal and Queen Helios, who had inherited the knowledge of how to control the crystal.

    Pandora and its' people had been born from an energy similar to that of the Gold Millennium Crystal, but it was weak, and had barely had enough power to sustain a single race. As such, the people of Pandora had been forced to live in poverty and starvation, only driven by the curse that is survival instinct. But, by obtaining the crystal, they would be able to subjugate the entire universe and break free from the shadows as supreme beings.

    The people of Sol were caught completely off guard, not prepared to protect themselves. Queen Helios, realizing what would happen if the Gold Millennium crystal fell in the hands of Pandora, made a final decision, and the ultimate sacrifice.

    The only way to hinder Pandora from getting hold of the crystal would be to destroy it. And so, she reversed the flow of magic from the crystal, causing it to implode. The shock wave was so powerful that it changed the very molecular structure of Sol, turning it into a ball of endless hellfire, a star. All matter was erased from the surface of all the planets, and only their core and shell was left. Pandora, which had not yet established full gravitational connection, was hurled out of orbit back into the depths of space where it came from.

    But, despite the complete eradication of Sol's society, there was still hope that it would rise again. A very small fragment of the Gold Millennium Crystal had been sent to Tellus, the only planet that hadn't completely lost its atmosphere due to being at a great enough distance from the shock wave, and was thus most suitable to host life. Thanks to the (although very weak) magic of the Gold Millennium Crystal shard and the warmth of the star formerly known as the planet Sol, matter began to form on the surface, eventually causing the same spark that had occurred so long ago, leading to the resurrection of life. The souls of Queen Helios's young daughter, Solaria, the ambassador's, and a governor were sent along with the crystal shard, so that they may one day be reborn and cause a renaissance for the lost civilization of Sol.

    We have now reached modern day, where evolution has come down to a race similar to the one from Sol that calls itself humanity, and the souls sent with the crystal shard have been reborn into human bodies. However, unbeknown to Queen Helios, the ambassador from Pandora had been able to predict this scenario, and tasked her descendants to find the Solar System once again, claim the crystal fragment and the reincarnation of Sol's princess, who might hold the secret to recreate the Gold Millennium Crystal in its full glory.

    But this time, they are not unprepared! The souls had been imbued with magic that would grant them power once they achieved physical form. But will it be enough to defend the legacy of Sol from the clutches of Pandora's revenge?
    What I'm looking for in my partner
    First of all, to clear some things up:

    Our characters will have been reborn in the country of Japan on Tellus, now more commonly known as planet Earth. To clarify the astronomical situation, all planets are solid (meaning Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are not made up of gas) and Earth is the farthest away from the sun. I know this isn't entirely logical from a physics point of view, but, you know... Magic! Anyhow, I want you (my partner) to play the reincarnation of Solaria, Sailor Sol, as well as the other Sailor Guardians divided by two (we take half of the bunch each).

    They do not know they are reincarnations of the ambassadors, and so it will be the purpose of the governor (who will have been reincarnated as a cat similar to Luna but with a sun instead of a crescent moon as crest on her forehead), who will be played by me, to scout them. The order in which they are awakened is up for discussion, however I will play Sailor Mercury and be the second one to be awakened (after Sol), and there will be an arc conclusion before the Outer Guardians will start to be awakened.

    The reincarnations of the ambassadors will be sailor senshi of their corresponding planet, but you do not have to follow the manga when choosing their embodied element. For example, Sailor Mercury could have powers related to metal and not ice/water like in the manga, but you are also completely free to stick with the original element if you're more comfortable with it.

    If you're interested in this, I would prefer it if you're familiar with the manga, or the new Sailor Moon Crystal anime, because the story will be driven at a pace more similar to that than the original anime, which was full of filler. If you are, comment "I'm interested in the Sailor Moon AU RP" below!

    Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica universe plot idea
    The stage is Amenomachi, a seemingly ordinary city on the East Coast of near future Japan, the main part is played by a seemingly ordinary teenage girl leading a seemingly ordinary life, doing seemingly ordinarily in school with seemingly ordinary friends. But something is not right. There is a problem in her otherwise so ordinary life, and she prays for it to be resolved.

    As an answer to her prayers, she begins having dreams about a strange creature offering her the solution to her problem, in exchange for her signing a contract of inexplicable content. Surely it cannot be real. Right? And what's up with those wooden dolls that have suddenly begun appearing strewn all over the city?...
    What I'm looking for in my partner
    I'm looking for a partner to make a character that can become a magical girl, and the protagonist of this RP. I will play the role of Incubator/Kyubey, as well as other various filler roles. The amount of magical girls in the cast and who plays who is up for discussion. If you're interested, comment "I'm interested in the Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica RP" below!


    Taken
    Pokémon plot idea
    "Hello there! Welcome to the world of Pokémon! My name is Oak! People call me the Pokémon Prof! This world is inhabited by creatures called Pokémon! For some people, Pokémon are pets. Other use them for fights. Myself… I study Pokémon as a profession. First, what is your name?..."

    I'm sure you recognize the quote. And I'm hoping that you'll be filled with as much anticipation as that quote entails as you step into an entirely new region, constructed by myself.

    You will start of as young trainer, having just received a starter Pokémon of your choosing from your native region, on your way to the Coffret Region to meet your uncle, Ezekiel Larch, a renowned Pokémon professor. You are eager to set out on an adventure, and your uncle seems to have a request for you...
    What I'm looking for in my partner
    From there, the RP will unfold very much like one of the games, with me playing essentially every NPC, from Gym Leader to Evil Mastermind. Because I am lacking in the design skill and software department, there will unfortunately be no new Pokémon, and I will not be able to show you how the region or the gym badges look, but I'll do my best to describe it. Character pictures might also be a bit less viable for this, since finding fitting images for all the characters in the cast I have in mind would be somewhat of a hassle, but it could probably be done.

  2. Status update: The Pokémon plot idea has been taken, and I don't want to run two of those at the same time. Because I'm now busy with more than one RP, the Madoka Magica idea is off the table since it's the one that would involve the most brainpower from my side. But, if there's someone who really wants to go with it and I think we would be compatible, I might bend the rules a bit.
