I am hopelessly, desperately searching for some lengthy roleplays! I don’t want someone who is simply throwing words together to meet a word count, but someone who puts some thought into their writing and will, hopefully, encourage me to push my limits and hopefully pull me out of the rut that I seem to have fallen into. A post once a week will be good. If you can do more that is fine as well, but all I really need is once a week, and right now that is all I’m willing to promise. Sometimes I may get more than one post out a week, sometimes one will be the limit. Summer time is coming, and my kids will be out of school. Depending on how much they bug me to go out to the pool will depend on how I can respond. My absolute minimum that I am comfortable with is four paragraphs. I know that’s inconvenient for a lot of people who want face paced stories, but I’m not that type of person. I like playing things out and building up worlds/characters. I’m a sucker for character development and plot twists as well. As far as characters go my main character is always female. I play dozens of other characters of different genders, but I’m just not comfortable enough playing as a male main character. I will not play a male in the main pairing either. I’m slowly getting used to playing male in a MxF pairing, but I haven’t quite gotten it down yet. But, I’d be willing to give it a shot as long as you understand that I’m new to it. Always more plot than sex! Yes, this is the Libertine section, but usually I place threads here because I like not having to sift through teenagers and I truly hate to censor myself. When it comes to smut I prefer a 80/20 Plot/Smut balance. Gore, violence and all adult themes are fine with me, as long as they’re realistic. I generally use realistic pictures for my character, and I do like making character sheets. I don’t ask for a complex one in return. A small one with basic information is fine by me. The plots highlighted in blue are the ones that I'm really wanting to do! Medieval Apocalyptic(Fantasy)The lands have been destroyed by wars, floods, and every kind of natural disaster that you can think of. Once fruitful grounds are now barren wastelands, and the human population, as small as it is, is struggling to survive. Royal blood now holds double the value as each country is seeking leadership to guide them through this desolate new world. Kings are heavily guarded against kidnapping attempts. Even princesses are being taken from their homes and carried off to new lands in hopes that they will rule over other lands that have not been fortunate enough to find leadership. That’s not to say that everyone wants a reinstatement of politics and monarchies. There are factions within the world who are looking to eliminate the old ways. Corrupt men who want to control their countries and its people without having to deal with laws. They want the power that comes with being in charge, the rewards that come along with being at the top of the food chain, but have little regard for the little people who must work to give them what they want. They offer protection, but at a high price, often too high for anyone to pay. In the kingdom of Amarian there is a princess who has remained hidden away from the world for most of her life. Her father has kept her a secret since birth, keeping her away from the castle and out of the public’s eye out of fear of what could happen to her if she was discovered. Eventually, as all always seems to happen with secrets, someone learns of her identity and begins to plan her abduction. Kidnapping her is easy enough, but actually getting her back to the country proves too much, much harder than anyone would have thought.(Possible Rape/Abuse, Fluff, Violence & Gore Medieval FantasyChaos has been unleashed on the world. A creature, neither good nor evil has begun to unsettle the balance of nature. A deal is struck between the king of the underworld and the Creator of heaven to find a way to rid the world of this creature using one of their own creations.

For years he has harbored a fondness for her, her age and her attitude toward him holding him back from ever sharing how he feels.

Now they must travel together to find what is left of humanity, and enough resources for their continued survival.(Violence, gore, mild fluff, action) Please, for the love of God do not respond to this if you're wanting to do a zombie apocalypse! Created World (Steampunkish) The world that the roleplay takes place in is neither medieval, nor modern, but a combination of the two in a sense. Weapons are all steel, no guns, bombs, or anything of that nature. There are trains and ships, along with basic electricity and indoor plumbing. The story begins with two families of assassins who have been feuding for the past century. The bloodshed had spilled into the streets of their country, forcing the king to take action. Believing that he has found the perfect solution he makes a decree; the eldest daughter of one family is to marry the eldest son of the opposing family. They are given one month's time to prepare for the wedding, and a year after their marriage to conceive a child to verify that they are living as man and wife. (No guns! Possible rape, violence, gore, arranged marriage) MedievalShe had talent that most men could only dream of. Her father, a world renowned weaponsmith having taught her how to wield a weapon from a very young age. She took to it like a duck to water, her skills surpassing even those in the Royal Guard. There was not a single man who could beat her, not even the king's more powerful knight. The posters for the challenge pique her interest, a calling for all swordsmen of great skill to earn their place in the Royal Guard as the prince, and sole heir to the throne's guard. Try as she might to put the challenge out of her mind, she knows that she will be able to beat all who answer the call. It's not her pride that lures her, but a sense of duty in protecting her country's future leader. Disguising herself as a man, she enters the contest and, as predicted, wins. It is only when asked to reveal her face that the truth comes out that the greatest swordsman in the country happens to be a young woman no older than nineteen. The king is furious, insisting that his son could not possibly protected by a woman and demands that the man who took second place be named as his son's guard. The prince however, stands by the promise of the contest, informing his father that she is now his personal guard. The relationship between the two is shaky at first, with the prince taunting and teasing the woman (All in good fun of course!), but she soon proves herself when she saves his life from an assassin. Realizing that he made the right choice, the prince begins to trust the young woman with not only his life, but his counsel as well.

Pairings without PlotFandoms: Jack and Sam (Stargate) Abby and Crane (Sleepy Hollow) Dark Tower series Firefly/Serenity AU Divergent (Tris X Four) Forbidden Romance (Haven't figured out exactly what though) [BCOLOR=#000080]Unhealthy Relationship[/BCOLOR] Celebrity x Normal person Ghost X Haunted Stalker x Victim I marked a few with possible rape, simply because it all depends on how the characters interact. In some cases, fluffiness and romance is easy between the characters, and in other cases it's not. HUGE NOTE: If there is a rape, chances are there will not be a future romance between the characters! Let's be realistic people! No one, no sane person that is, falls in love with their rapist.... As for kinks/fetish and all that other stuff. I can't say that I have any or looking in that direction at all, but I will not tolerate anything involving bodily fluid, abuse of children/animals, extreme torture/pain, furries, and that's about all I can think of at the moment. Just ask, and I'll let you know if I'm comfortable with something or not. That's pretty much all my twisted, insomniac mind can think of at the moment. These are the plots that I’m craving right now. I’ll probably change them at some point as my mood changes. If you’re interested, drop me a line on here or send me a PM.
