Hey there! I'm looking for a partner which has been to say so far, a bit unfruitful. But, there's hope yet as I keep this thread updated with faith. POST LENGTH Dialogue Posts: (1) - (3?) paragraphs "Solo" Posts*: (3) - (4?) paragraphs / lines *Solo posts are when your character(s) go off and experience a scene on their own, without any other player's characters interfering. The entire scene is under your control. I'm not totally sure since I don't really pay that much attention to my post lengths. I don't enjoy having to fluff my posts if there's only simple action and dialogue, so the minimum there is at least one paragraph usually. A paragraph is a group of sentences expressing a complete thought. I don't expect much from anyone other than that- complete ideas, those can be done in as little as two sentences. I would consider myself adept but I welcome any skill level and love to help people with improving their writing any way I can, if I can. I don't welcome snobbish attitudes toward writing. WRITING STYLE (check any that apply) (x) I spend most of the post on my character's emotions. () I spend most of the post on my character's observations. () I spend most of the post on physical descriptions (character or setting) (x) I spend most of the post on actions and/or dialogue. It's a mixed bag to be honest. DETAIL (x) Love it! () Only the required details - I do not want to sift through flowers for content. () Minimalism all the way! SHOWING VS. TELLING ()% Showing, ()% Telling () I am trying to improve this ratio. (x) What do you mean? I just type. I have no clue about how much of each I do, but I am aware of the importance of showing and I try to stick to that. RP PHILOSOPHIES (check only those that apply strongly, or you might end up checking them all) () It is a way to unwind and escape after a stressful or tiring day. () It is the creation of a collaborative story. (x) It is a game people play with each other. () It should be readable - consistency and good flow are key. () RPs exist for the players, not an audience. () Characters serve the story. () The story serves the characters. (x) I write my own fiction and sometimes I use RP to develop character and brainstorm plot. () I use it as practice to improve my writing skill. CHARACTER QUANTITY (check all that apply) Main character = you play their thoughts and actions Side character = recurring, possibly important, but you write only their actions. NPC = usually insignificant, you play only their actions, and both/all rpers can control them. () I prefer only playing one main character. (x) I am comfortable playing 2-4 main characters. () I am comfortable playing more than 5 main characters. () I prefer no side characters. (x) I am comfortable playing 1-4 side characters. () I am comfortable playing more than 5 side characters. () I prefer as few npcs as possible. (x) I don't care how many npcs there are. CRITICISM () I am eager to receive all the criticism you can give me. () I will take criticsm to improve my writing, but please do not overdo it as I can be sensitive. (x) If I want criticism, I will ask for it. () I am here to roleplay just for fun. I do not want criticism. OOC ACTIVITY: () Only for plot discussions. () At least daily correspondence. () Be my new friend! Let's chat! I don't mind being talked to, or not talked to. I likely won't initiate an OOC conversation, but i'm always cool with people who don't mind striking up a chat with me. IC ACTIVITY () I am busy but I am addicted to Iwaku so I will try anyway. () I am busy but I make an effort to drop by consistently. () I am busy and sometimes die for long periods of time, but I will come back. () Sometimes I lose my muse, but this is never permanent. () Sometimes I lose my muse, and this may be problematic. I am practically never busy. But I am awake pretty much from the evenings to the early hours. TENACITY / PATIENCE (check any that apply) () I very, very, rarely quit rps. (x) I try my best not to quit rps. () I appreciate patient partners that can wait. () I will quit rps that have been completely silent for (max) days/weeks/months. () I will wait indefinitely for the return of a good partner. () I sometimes regretfully quit rps due to real-life issues. There is usually no reason for me to quit a rp, other than it being somehow not enjoyable? I'm very forward about such things though, and am not a fan myself of having rp dropped out of the blue. ROMANCE () Required () Preferred (x) Only if Natural () No. I allow whatever my characters would do. SEX () Required () Preferred () No NSFW (fade to black; brief/vague descriptions or summaries) (x) All my characters are asexual. They are, however there are opportunities for failed, shameful attempts at sex. I personally have never written a sex scene, so expect the worst if it happens? I don't honestly see it happening, but sometimes you just don't know man. OPEN ENDED QUESTIONS (take your time with these!) Make a list of all your RP pet peeves: -Being left to dry in the middle of RP. -Forgetting to describe simple, important details like a characters basic looks or the setting Really I haven't got a solid list of things that bug me. I haven't done rp with strangers for very long, so I predict it's probably something to be noted with experience. Make a list of all your RP-buddy candies (not plot candies! RP buddy candies!) -I uh, can't think of any at the moment Describe your ideal RP partner in less than 3 sentences. -I would be thrilled to have a partner who can respond quickly, and who is already well aquainted with writing. But, aside from that I would love to rp with someone who really loves their characters as much as I do. ==================================== RP is really an important writing tool for my characters and fiction, but aside from that it's just one of my most favorite things. I always use the characters i've already created, instead of ones made up on the spot because it helps me when I know how to play a particular character well. The only limits I have are that the characters must fit the setting, and I basically allow for anything that would make sense for them to do naturally. Anything else does not matter to me. I just ask that you stick to universal rules like no godmodding or character hijacking. Word of warning though, I am heavily into describing gorey scenes and other sort of disturbing nasty things. I absolutely love being grotesque and off putting, it's my specialty. Aside from that I commonly play with vampiric/vampire like characters, which I feel the need to state since it seems some are a bit picky bout it. If there's anything else you need to know, please ask.
