Greetings, prospective partners! As you may have guessed from my name, I enjoy writing. The art lends itself to many uses, and offers me valuable exercise for my mind, and therapy for my soul. It is with this exercise and therapy in mind that I come to Iwaku, the newest place where I dare to post that I am seeking partners to share in a long-term story that involves working my brain and helping it expand. I love realism and the ability to suspend disbelief. I adore drama and danger, human nature, dealing with stigma, fear, and bringing new eyes into the worlds I have created. I do need to work on my ability to do combat and type romance, but those, I feel, are secondary to the things I enjoy, so are slightly lower priority. About Me I am twenty five, and have been roleplaying since I was thirteen (I started almost exactly on my birthday). I have a form of high-functioning Autism called Asperger's Syndrome (diagnosed by medical professionals), and have difficulties relating to others. Roleplaying helps me learn empathy, and how to act confident and normal. I have successfully completed two years straight of NaNoWriMo, and am editing my first novel and finishing my second starting in January. My favorite colors are brown and orange, and I love ice cream, even in the winter. Guidelines Ability I expect my partners to be capable of proper capitalization, spelling, punctuation, and to use readable sentence structure. I prefer a length of between two sentences (for dialogue or action-heavy scenes) and two paragraphs (or more, I won't be scared off). I expect careful attention to tense and person, and I will only roleplay in third person, past tense, and I will correct those who use the word "would" in place of a past tense verb. I can supply examples and explanations on request. As an important note, typos and occasional errors are fine. It would be hypocritical of me to say otherwise. Roleplaying Manners I ask my partners do not take control of my characters (including NPCs). I also ask that said partners do not try to use their characters to overpower the setting or antagonists, or to alter my characters or settings in ways not previously asked about and consented to. When I am GMing for a partner, I expect that partner to adhere to the rules of the world and to the notes I have listed. I have put a lot of work into my settings and plots, and I would appreciate said work being heeded. Another request I have is that my partners do not steal art and edit it. Artists put a lot of effort into their work, and seeing someone take it, change it, and not offer even a line of credit to them is disheartening. For prospective partners uncertain about good roleplay manners, please ask, and I will do my best to explain further. Format I will play either in PMs or threads. I will not play over skype or any other instant messaging client. I might be convinced to play over Google Documents, but it is unlikely. Fanciful post formatting in the roleplay is something I discourage, because I have a hard time reading when text is colored or small. OOC I am seeking neither OOC romance nor roleplay with one person exclusively. Few things make me feel more uncomfortable than a jealous partner. On the subject of reminders (because sometimes I do take a long time to reply), I would like my partners to remind me to post if I have taken more than a day. My mind is not always up to the task, and if I cannot post for some time, I will inform my partner and ask that we continue when my mind is once more able. If I take more than a week to reply, it may be that I am having difficulties with my depression. I ask my partners please understand, and to be there when I return so that we can continue. As with before, I will try to let my partners know when this is the issue. I pride myself on being an honest player. In the following posts, I have listed my characters and my worlds. Please read the summaries, and then click on the names to learn more on either charahub or wikia. Currently, the order of posts is the order of preference. Names that are struck through are characters or settings for which I am not seeking new partners.
