  1. Hello! :wave:

    So, I am looking for one maybe two RPs. =) Below is an outline of what I look for in writing partners, as well as what I can offer. Please go over this--yes, I know it's a bit dry--because I am a firm believer in writing-compatibility. I also encourage you to take a peek at my resume for more detailed information.

    Though I do have a list of expectations below, let me be clear: I am actually pretty easy going and friendly. RP is meant to be fun, and exciting, relaxing, and just an all-around good time. If you have any questions about my expectations please don't hesitate to ask. :)

    - Questions? Please respond in this thread.
    - Want to write a story? Please respond via PM.

    Partner Expectations
    • Must be over 18
    • Writing Conventions - High school level minimum; College level preferred.
      • Only third-person, past tense writing styles accepted.
    • RP Conventions - IC responses should be long enough (or short enough) to provide forward momentum to the scene/story. Description and creativity is certainly encouraged, but I am not one to count paragraphs, words, or sentences.
      • No one-liners, please.
      • No fluff; as a rule description and narration should be there enhance the story.
    • Story Elements - Plot, setting, characters: please be willing to help build and be involved with all parts of the story. Please be comfortable helping to drive plot forward.
    • Friendly Communication - Let's chat! We don't have to become best friends, but some general friendliness and making oneself approachable often makes for stronger RP. (This also helps if we need to chat about RP issues or concerns.)
    • Pacing - Be committed to the RP, or please let me know when you need a hiatus, or if you wish to stop. Truly, I understand about life and priorities; there are times when my own responses will be slow. I will do my best to communicate my needs as well.
    What I Offer
    • Integrity - In other words, everything from the list above. I do not ask for what I cannot give.
    • World Building - I love it! For all the RPs I engage in, I like to do light research, learn new things and create a world both before and during our RP. I can't get enough of it.
    • Quirky Enthusiasm - :veryhappy:
    • Pacing - Currently, I post about once every week or two weeks. If you are one who needs frequent-to-daily posting, I may not be the writing partner for you. However, this is variable depending on how busy I am with life/work. Otherwise, I am generally too exhausted on weeknights to post. Regardless, once I start an RP you can trust that I will not give up on it, and can often pick up where we left off without missing a beat even after a long hiatus.
    Preferred RP Elements
    • Limits - I have very few limits in terms of content in stories. Please refer to my resume for further details, or you may ask.
    • Romance - Always welcome, never required.
    • Gender - I am comfortable playing both males and females.
    • Characters - Originals only.
    • Settings - I prefer original stories, but would enjoy a fan-based story from one of three settings (original plot and characters are still required):
      • Mass Effect
      • Dragon Age
      • Skyrim


    Currently I have only one plot idea to offer, but below are some less developed ideas for your consideration.

    Plot #1


    She wanted no part of her family's legacy. It promised only a short, brutal life of killing and bloodshed. Going to college was the chance for her to leave it all behind. For a time she thought she was free to live a life of peace and simplicity and yet the most distance she gained from the life the more she knew she could not escape her life and duty. As expected, they came for her anyway. He came for her.​

    He was a werewolf. She knew it from the very first moment their eyes met. Feral. Dangerous. Kind...​

    The enemy.


    Man and wolf have been at war for countless centuries, fighting for a cause that is long since forgotten. Now that war has become bloody, merciless and threatens to break out and become very, very public. There are greater, darker forces at work that threatens the entire world...​

    Tags: Werewolves, adventure, horror, romance

    Some other ideas...
    • The Siege - Our numbers were depleted, resources nearly gone. Innocents were starving and well beyond fear. We had no choice but to... surrender. (Alternative - we had no choice but to risk the path through the mountains...)
    • Forgotten - We should not have forgotten our past. We were complacent and foolish. Now it may be too late...
    • Immortal War - ... and as usual mortals are caught in the middle.
    • Mass Effect/Dragon Age - I love both of these settings and would enjoy an original plot for either.

  2. I personally would enjoy Plot #1, Forgotten, or werewolves. If still interested and looking feel free to pm me if you like my resume.
  3. Thank you for your interest, Santario, but my RP card is now full. Perhaps we can explore some ideas sometime in the future.
