    Hi there! This is a fairly simple, if not slightly cliché roleplay that leaves tons of room for character construction and development, plot manipulation, setting pliability, and all that good stuff. I figured I'd make my first roleplay here a little lighter and relaxed, just to test the waters and get into the swing of things. Also, school's been a pain in the butt as of late, and sappy romance onexone's never fail to make my happy. If you fit the following criteria and trope-y grossness is your cup of tea, carry on!

    ADVANCED AND UP. I'd like to roleplay with somebody who's confident in their writing and experienced with character dynamics, complex themes, and plot contribution. I don't have an age requirement, seeing as I'm a relatively young rp'er myself and don't believe in age dictating the maturity or quality of a writer's work.
    FRIENDLY RELATIONS. It's always a little awkward to rp with somebody you don't get along or can't a carry conversation with. I'd prefer to maintain a friendly relationship with my partner.
    NOTHING EXPLICIT. Sorry! I'm only fourteen. Unless we're close friends, I would rather steer clear of explicit sexual content. Hinting and censored references are fine, however.
    BE ACTIVE. Not gonna lie, I can get pretty inactive. However, I generally post a few times a week, and try to keep a regular posting schedule. It'd be great if you could, too.
    HAVE FUN! At the end of the day, this is a hobby, and something that shouldn't create additional stress. It's okay to goof around, mess up, or have a few grammatical errors in posts. We're not writing for publication!

    Born into wealth, the son of a respectable businessman, and at the prime of his youth, there's nothing he wants more than to enjoy the favorable life he's been given: glamorous parties, expensive alcohol, joyrides along the ocean, and reveling in the feeling of the young and invincible. However, much to his dismay, his parents seem to have an entirely different plan laid out for him—for years now, they've practically hounded him about settling down with a potential wife, pushing suitor after suitor at him. Meanwhile, on the other side of town, where the concrete's a little less smooth and it's hard to differentiate between trash and people, the shambles of a life she's spent so hard trying to piece back together has all but collapsed at her feet. A seemingly normal and ordinary girl in all aspects, she purposely keeps a low profile and attempts to dig up her questionable past an impossible feat. When her long-term boyfriend leaves her for another woman, she's at a loss of what to do—her plans for the future have been tossed down the drain, every vision and dream painted over with the assumption that they ould be turned to reality with him, together.

    Nobody knows how they met, or who spoke first, or what sparked the idea, only that he showed up at a house party one evening with her on his arm, the first proper girlfriend he'd made in years. See, it was simple; a matter of politics, a carefully orchestrated exchange of give and take, and it all came down to business. The entire relationship was that of a professional one: she would pretend to be his girlfriend in order to keep his parents off his back and put an end to the suitors and blind dates and constant pestering, and in exchange, he would pretend to be her boyfriend to have her ex want her back.

    No feelings, no complications, no emotional baggage. Just strictly business.



    Feel free to try out for either role. While I'm leaning more towards playing The Nobody, I'd gladly take The Bachelor if you have an impressive character.

    Thank you for the interest! And I apologize for the confusion over appearance. I'd prefer anime, but face claims are also fine.

    I'm going to leave sign-ups open for maybe today and tomorrow to see if anybody else is interested, before going ahead and selecting a character.
