EDITED 22 January 2017; new content in green I tried to make this neater via coding and fucked it all up so I gave up. enjoy this Wall of Text™ I'm hesitant to embark on anything that I don't know will jive well with me translation: I'm gonna be picky, sorry pals Honestly please just PM me your inquiries Feel free to skim down to preferences to see if I'm worth your time (holy god is this long), but please read some of the 'guidelines' if we share interests, so neither of us waste any time Not going to equivocate, I'm not very comfortable writing with bluestar. Not for any specific reasons, just that I'm almost a quarter of a century old and every time I see someone younger than me at all, this is me PMs > other or whatever = threads (<- not a hard preference) I have messengers or whatever for OOC if that's a thing, primarily Skype and Discord I’m easily overwhelmed. Light nudges are fine. Prodding me with a stick will wake the bear lol. I'll do you the same courtesy unless you welcome it. I am 'ditch friendly'. I can disappear, but if I'm keeping up with you OOC regularly, I care about you and our roleplay enough to keep you updated. If either one of us wants to disappear in the planning stages, I won't be bothered. If you want to disappear during writing, I still won't be bothered. I can't be; life's too short. I don't care about experience or post length (barring one-liners or purple prose) and I mirror. Fandoms: I’m anime and video game trash. Please avoid stereotypes in your romantic requests, and bear in mind that I prefer not to focus wholly on the romance. let it work there. I write almost all the canons I get my hands on as pansexual/romantic at least. I deal with trans characters (myself) on a case by case basis and welcome anyone that comes to me to use theirs. I do not, however, write anything that can be construed as yaoi or yuri, because those are fetish genres. :') Doubling/playing multiple characters is mandatory Do not sexualize minorities or children. Don’t romanticize abuse or mental illness. If characters use slurs, don't minimize or excuse it. If you use any, I'm either confronting you or dropping you immediately, depending on my mood. Don't waste time telling me how strong, independent, impressive, or different your character is. Please don't try to force romance at any point. I'm actually amenable to romance, I just don't like suffocating in it, you feel? Natural progression. This is going to sound hella contradictory, but provided we negotiate, I am open to pre-established relationships. For fandoms, I can and do double. canon/oc = oc/oc > canon/canon. Inquire about my canon ships if you've got ideas, but bear in mind that 99% of them are lgbt+ Power dynamics are fine. Dominant x submissive or any of its variants (angel x demon, good x bad, lawful x evil), I'm not interested in UNLESS you're playing with these themes. I’m a mixed/aggressive writer; I c a n n o t h a n d l e people who call that and raise me ‘I will never make any contributions’. Please be direct with me in your communications. I won't know what your concern is if you don't tell me in plain words what it is. I also get confused by/assume the worst of passive-aggression or indirect/vague statements, so you're best off being honest about your concerns, and I'll try my best to do the same. I'm not great at coding. I am unlikely to write teenaged characters. I do not operate well under a presumption of romance. Italics: I'm interested (otherwise I wouldn't list it), but would need convincing, a plot, or good characters. Strikeout: it's taken, or I'm interested but need a LOT of convincing/it's low on my priority list/etc. You can still ask for it but you'd need to sell hard Bold is self-explanatory lol If it lacks emphasis, I'm blasé—and any mix of emphases should be self-explanatory as well. What I can definitively list (and this will be edited over time) is as follows (now with new and improved characters I'd be most inclined to write for): Psycho-Pass Kougami Makishima Masaoka Kunizuka Kagari Hellsing (ultimate/manga) Walter Alexander Alucard if you've got a STUNNING offer Cowboy Bebop Jet Vincent Vicious Spike, with great offer Black Butler (manga) Baldroy Finnian Ciel Wolfram Grell Undertaker Sebastian with a SMASHING offer and understanding of what he entails RWBY (heavy preference for volumes 3+) R W B Y J N P R Sun and Neptune Adam Taurus (sell me on this, please. I want to write him so bad but to a good character/plot.) Taiyang lmao. T A I Y A N G L M A O Ozpin ?? ? The Last of Us (ask with care) Devil May Cry Vergil Nero miscellaneous other shit dante x pizza otp Shadows of the Damned G a r c i a Resident Evil Wesker ?? ? Chris Jake Claire ?? Sherry ?? Final Fantasy XIII, XIII-2, and LR Lightning Caius Noel Fang Vanille Final Fantasy XV Maximum Ride Harry Potter (ask with care) some other books i've forgotten lol Ask about things not seen here! I'm just listing what comes to mind off the top of my head, based on current interests/fixations. For originals, my main interests lie in: Horror Psychological Suspense Supernatural (beings of all kinds) Action Drama Comedy New aside: please come to me with some form of idea if you want an original. you can still offer without, but I'm not often inclined to collaborate when there's nothing at all, or it's just "haha i kinda want to write supernatural but idk what uwu" without any elaboration. Don't come to me for: Mystery (unless you have a very hard sell) Most historical eras (same deal) Strict romance (Strict) slice-of-life Slice-of-life and romance are permissible as sub-genres. I can't/won't write them as main.
