Well, that's a good lot of warnings you have up there Kitsune, you may say. Why yes, there are quite a few warnings up there, I would reply. Which is why I am going to start with: Mature readers only, please! Now that that unpleasantness is out of the way (I really do hate having to turn people away) we can continue on! For those that are left, I am assuming that you are a mature reader, comfortable with the following things: Explicit Language Libertine moments (It will be plot bound, but sex will be involved) Some graphic gore, or perhaps abuse Lots and lots of tragedy Now, that's not to say that every roleplay will have all of these things. It depends on the roleplay in question. I just ask that all of the people I roleplay with be comfortable with this stuff, because I may or may not find myself adding in a twist or two that involves the above mature themes. So, now that we have only mature roleplayers remaining, it's time to whittle down the masses a bit more with my preferences. As you might have seen, I have this tagged as Advanced. Merely because that would be the average of the kinds of people I'm willing to roleplay with! I am accepting anyone with skill levels from Adept to prestige (Not Douche, because I feel like I'd fall a little bit short of perfection- after all, there is always room to improve) given that they at least jive with my preferences. So I suppose I should outline those. Post Length Now, this one... it's pretty flexible. I'm not picky about post length; and by that I mean, I don't require you to write two paragraphs and two paragraphs only. I would like to see a lot of detail. Gritty, gory, detail, and as much of it as you feel comfortable putting in. So While I'd like to see at least two paragraphs, it isn't necessary (A little un-recommended if you want to keep my interest) but the more the merrier. If you have a habit of writing novels per post- I would be one happy duckling. Saying that, you may find that perhaps I put in too much detail. Not only do I enjoy describing the scenery, and the sensations that result, I also find myself writing quite a bit of monologue. Meaning, you will never guess as to what my characters are feeling- unless it's intended for you to guess, because I want the reaction to be a legitimate surprise. That being said, if you don't like reading long paragraphs, this won't be for you (As you can probably see by how long the recruitment thread is getting) so please don't waste either of our time? Pretty please? Quality over quantity, but quantity appreciated! Moving on! Post Frequency Now this one is easy. I really don't care when you get around to responding. Have time to throw out 17 posts a day, and just about drive me crazy? GREAT! I love it. I have lots of spare time, and next to nothing to do with it. I will obviously slow down once I get a few RP's going, but the more the merrier I always say! Likewise, if you can only manage one post a week, or just whenever you can get around to throwing one up- hey, I will wait for quality. You will find me ever patient, and ever understanding. NO APOLOGIES. No seriously, I mean it, do not apologize for being slow on responses! (Sometimes, I am too) Gender and roles Now this is where things start getting more complicated. I am female (some of you might know, some of you might not) and therefore I am better at playing female roles. I find that my female characters have a little more weight behind them, a better, more fleshed out story. They certainly feel more alive to me! Now, that isn't to say I don't enjoy playing male characters as well! I do occasionally dabble on that foreign side of the playing field, but my repertoire for that is quite... narrow. That isn't to say my male characters will be any less quirky and fun, with interesting little stories to drag out of them, it just means that I tend to stay towards stereotypes that I am more familiar with. I.E, quirky and strange, or flirty and mischievous. I'm not really the strong silent type of guy- when I do indeed play a guy. I like their personalities loud, and eye-catching. So, with Genders out of the way, we come to roles. This is pretty vague, but I don't mind playing both dominant and submissive roles. Meaning I can both lead the story, and sit back and enjoy the ride if you want to take the reins for a bit. I like seeing where other people will lead me. Next up: Grammar and sentence fluidity Something a lot of people tend to ignore when it comes to roleplaying, is sentence fluidity. Good grammar is great! The right punctuation can really help immerse you in the world and make everything seem vibrant and real. But it can also lead to... well, something of a robotic approach to delivering the story. If you want to play with the punctuation to try and make things seem just a little bit more...interesting? Go for it! I like seeing the new and interesting ways to bring stories to life. That being said, spelling is a BIG thing for me. When words are spelled wrong (even when I spell them wrong myself) they drive me crazy. Using the wrong 'to' (to, too, two) or there (there, their, they're) can really jar me out of a good story, and make things feel bland... It also just irritates the crap out of me. So, decent spelling, at least, and nice flowing sentences. Genres Last but not least, genres. I can confidently say, the only thing I don't like is Slice of life. There are a few genres that I require to have a good plot before touching (such as vampires, werewolves, historical and modern etc.) but aside from that- throw em at me! I love finding new and interesting ideas. Alright. I think that about covers it! If this was all far too long for you, got a serious case of TLDR? Do not reply. My post will be long and windy, and if you couldn't tolerate reading all of this, our partnership probably won't last all that long. Hopefully I haven't scared too many people off, and will get gregarious amounts of responses with brilliant people! ^_^ I'm looking forwards to it!
