    Hello there, Lillian Gray at your service.

    Before I start, here's a few things you might want to know about me. I love to write, even if my skills aren't top notch, I get pretty excited about plots and ideas, so never be afraid to shoot me a message if you have an idea as well! As for what kinds of things I like? Romance is a biggie, send it my way, and I'm all yours. Along with that, fantasy, sci-fi, slice of life, anything with a hint of mystery, horror, and humor is fine.

    If that doesn't sound good? I'm open to suggestions as well!

    These are some preferences and requests I ask of my partners.
    • Post regularly. Daily is nice, but if I don't hear from your for a a week or two, I start to assume you're no longer interested.​
    • Help guide the plot, don't just follow it. Make your own ideas and go with them!​
    • If you're stuck, send a PM, I'd love to either help, or just know you're going to be stuck for a while.​
    • I'm not a fan of doubling, aka playing two characters at once, but that doesn't mean I will not double.​
    • I don't have a gender preference, male or female is fine.​
    • Love, love, love romance in a plot.​
    • One liners don't bother me, but the longer the post, the longer my reply will be.​

    Now let's talk plot.
    1. My Maiden
    Show Spoiler

    A Death Maiden, this is the title given to those who can commune with the dead. Men also carry the title, as a Reaper. Maidens and Reapers are taboo to speak with outside of their work, seen as ill omens and bad luck. This leaves our Maiden lonely, and constantly pestered by angry spirits. All except one. This spirit, she enjoys his presence, but love between the dead and the living is not seen as a healthy thing.

    War is raging, but this is not the story at hand. A Maiden is called to bring peace to the battlefield as countless die, their spirits rising in anger for their Kings. It's during this time that one such spirit doesn't leave, he stays, but she's unsure what it will bring.

    Please keep in mind, this is a very dark and serious roleplay. It deals with death left and right.

    2. We Start At the End TAKEN
    Show Spoiler

    "She was killed before I knew it. Deep inside the catacombs, we never found what was said to be buried here. I believe in my heart that it was all a lie. Every time she dies in my arms, we begin anew at the alter, just before she touches that cursed thing. An innocent looking totem, with eyes of rubies so red, I fear they were made of blood. And every time, I scream for her to stop, but it's always too late.
    The curse begins.
    Each time begins the same way. She touches the totem, a curse is placed on her. If we don't discover a way to cure it, her body fails from the inside out, and we start back at the shrine. If she dies inside the haunted catacombs, we start back at the shrine.
    There is another force at work here, something strange, even I cannot describe it. It is not the same power which binds her to death, but another that brings her back. It is my sworn duty to find this being, and I will bring her back. We will escape."

    Two companions enter the catacombs in search of a treasure said to be buried deep within. What they find is something else entirely. A curse for the woman, a quest for the man. They relive the same days, over and over, unsure of what to believe.
    Every day, they start at the end, where their search ended, and their trials began.

    3. Blind Attraction TAKEN

    Show Spoiler

    An open ended pairing about a blind girl who falls in love with an artist. I've started this plot several times with different partners to no avail. If you are not interested, please do not select this option, as I've had 3 people bail on me before. Thank you.

    4. The Last Days TAKEN

    Show Spoiler

    An open ended idea. A young woman is in the hospital, unsure of whether or not death will take her. This is a love story between her and a young man who seems to pity her situation. Where she wants to live, he wants to at least see her last days filled with something better than the same view out a hospital window.

    5. Disrupted Peace
    Show Spoiler

    Life is simple for our female role. Abandoned as a child by her mother, she has never known what other humans looked like. The girl found hope in her new home. A grove where golems come to life. They protect her, this place is their sanctuary after all, and she's long been a part of it. The girl is barely in her teens, not a child, but not a full adult, when other men come to claim the secrets of the sanctuary for their own. You, a male role, are on this expedition. The secrets of the golems or hero to the girl, her fate is in your hands.

    6. Machinations TAKEN
    Show Spoiler

    In the future, the human race developed a way of making life easier - automation. Not just any sort of automation, robotic, intelligent, and humanoid. In a time of great debate over the use of such machines, there is one girl who keeps a secret from the rest of the world. Her android, molded and crafted from her own hands, has a mind. He thinks, breathes, and loves. He doesn't always understand what it means, but she fully knows that the discovery of such a machine could mean the difference of life and death for the entire automaton race. Some would seek to have her android destroyed, but what they don't know is that there are more, more deadly minds in these robots.

    7. Saving You

    Show Spoiler

    For this, I do have a preference for the female role.

    Friends since the beginning of time, he and her did everything together. There was never a hint of romantic intention, not really. They were more like siblings, partners in crime, together forever it seemed. College came around, and they didn't part ways even then, keeping close contact through the years.

    On a visit home the female decides to sneak out, her new friends don't really have her best interests at heart, and are of the entirely wrong crowd. In a twist of fate, both of her parents, and young brother are killed in a brutal break in. She goes to him, and she's broken, different, no loner the girl he knew as a child.

    8. Prophecies

    Show Spoiler

    Once every one hundred years, the human race must sacrifice a pure maiden in order to satisfy the Gods of old, angered by the humans for their pointless fighting. Wars were waged, and it became tradition to sacrifice a maiden in order to set things right. The Old Gods faded, died on, but the tradition continued to keep them at peace.

    A girl is born with the power of an Old Healing goddess, and with her coming, the Old Gods are revived. Her sacrifice is called for in order to put them back to rest, back to peace. However, tensions rise as people start to speculate what it really means. If the Old Gods are rising to power, why were maidens continuously sacrificed? The New Gods claim she is evil, but the Old still want her power. No matter which side she turns to, there is no savior.

    Other Pairings

    Royalty x Servant
    Abused x Best Friend
    Angel/Demon/Human combinations
    Suggestions are welcome!

    Adored Themes

    Feel free to either PM me or leave a message! I will do my best to keep this list updated with what is taken.​

  2. I'm quite interested in 'we start at the end'. It sounds really awesome :) Would it be a more modern rp with a bit of fantasy/paranormal (the curse and such), or do you want it to be in a more historical setting or even a complete fantasy world where anything goes?

    I'm mostly interested in the female role, but I can take on any extra characters when they're needed, or when we just want to throw in something (male, female, human or other creatures.)

    Will the outside world be trapped in the curse without knowing it and re-live their days until it's broken, or is it only within the catacombs? And will they be aware of the fact that they're reliving it or will they be oblivious of that?
  3. I had the mindset for a more historical setting with a bit of fantasy. There isn't magic or anything of the sort (unless that's something you'd like to throw in), but the curse has enough of a paranormal effect to give the characters a bit of a shock. It's not every day you get cursed after all.

    Female is OK with me! I have no major gender preference, so I have no issues playing as the male.

    That's something I hadn't even thought about honestly! I suppose they may not even know, being trapped inside the catacombs after all. Hm. I'll send you a PM and we can discuss further, as for now I'll mark the idea as taken while we discuss.
    • Like Like x 1
  4. Still open!​
  5. I'd be interested in the third one (Blind Attraction) as the female character, although I'm a bit rusty with romance. If you want all honesty, prior to joining Iwaku I only did 1v1 roleplays with two friends for the longest time, so I considered myself rusty with forum roleplay in general when I hopped onto Iwaku, although I think I've gotten back in shape since. I just have yet to do a romance roleplay with anybody else for quite awhile.

    So if you'll have me, I'd be happy to do the roleplay. And I certainly won't leave it to die. Very interested in the dynamic (blind girl + artist? Almost sort of sad but really cute) as well. Just lemme know!
  6. Currently discussing plot with this one with another person. She got to it before you did in a PM, I only just got online to find out. I apologize.

    If you'd like, we can get another idea going if you're interested. However, if that plot doesn't go through with myself and the other member, I will be sure to let you know right away!
  7. Just a quick message if it opens up would be okay. Thanks, anyway!
  8. bump, still looking for partners
  9. I really like the sound and themes of Machinations and My Maiden, and would love to develop something for either of those. I've been yearning for a more serious or dark roleplay for a while now. It seems I've finally found the right place.
  10. I enjoy the concept of "The Last Days" it sounds just perfect for me, I could play the girl in the hospital and you can play the guy character, if that is alright. I rather enjoy playing the female character(s) in a roleplay. Message me or whatever you want so we can possibly get things started! :bouncy:
  11. I'd love to rp with you, but I'm really not sure which one. Your ideas are really good but you also have some good general themes that are really good. I've been wanting to do a steampunk or horror one for ages.
  12. That's cool! I can send you a PM and we can try to think something up if that sounds good to you.
  13. Alright!
  14. If you're still looking, I'd be interested in Royalty x Servant, or Angel/Demon/Human Combination of some sort!
