Playing Style- Passive or Aggressive
I play what's needed, but I do like to take the lead. In my one-on-ones, I often like being the "Game Master" in the sense of creating the setting, controlling NPCs, and steering the plot. But I still like input and collaboration from my partners. In group games, I prefer to be the GM or to play a leading or mentor role.
Favorite Genres
I love a little bit of everything. My top choices would be Horror, Modern Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Magical Realism, Noir, Steampunk, Cyberpunk, Splatterpunk, Post-Apocalyptic, Historical, Mystery, old-school High Fantasy, and Sci-Fi (especially Spacesagas). I'd love to do some occasional Clockpunk or Weird West or Wuxia or Dieselpunk, too.
Genre You DON'T Like
I guess the only thing I don't particularly care for is high school drama, and even that can be fun with a good hook.

One or the other, depending on who's story I'm playing. Passive if I'm joining, Aggressive if I started the story.
Favorite Genres
Fantasy; Sci-Fi; Modern; Romance (maybe; it happens in between sometimes); Surreal-Horror/Fantasy/Sci-Fi (it's only ever been in my writings, but I'd like to see if it would work for an RP)
Genre You DON'T Like
Purely Battle (unless relevant to plot), Unnecessary Sexy Time, Furry
Would a "Job Broker" count as a potential job?

That would defeat the purpose of potential jobs; a job that gives other people jobs.

He's like the guy who gives you your mission, the middle-person between the person who wants something, and the person who needs to do something.

Is that not the purpose of this thread?

IGNORE HER. I say "Job Broker: The Broker of All Sorts of Jobs!"

That is a mercenary middle-person.

JOB BROKER!

Playing Style- Passive or Aggressive
Recently, I've noticed that I tend to roll along with an RP's plot, and although my characters tend to be decision-makers, they'll focus on the matter at hand. On the other hand, I'll often run personal subplots for my character(s) in the background and may or may not involve other characters in it too.
Favorite Genres
I'm perfectly willing to run with anything as long as it isn't boring. Try me, I'll probably say yes.
Genre You DON'T Like
Pure libertines/Slice-of-life. They tend to be boring. Isn't escapism the whole point of roleplaying, after all?

...Not that I play libertines, so I guess the comparison falls kinda flat, but you get the point, right?
If there's magic, warders to reinforce architecture!
Also, fire mages to heat underground plumbing networks! Hot water yaaaay~
