Deep in the rural woods of Maine, the visage of a once celebrated mental institution stands. The memory of this building has faded, having seemingly been closed down in the 1960s to those old enough to know its name but not exactly remember what it stands for. The brick of the walls is dusty, and the gardens surrounding the massive estate are gloomy. An air of despair fills the lungs of any who dare to breathe it and chokes them on the hatred permeating from the building. Surrounded by miles and miles of forest and shrubbery, most know naught of its existence. Those that do are housed within its unforgiving walls : stagnant nurses, eccentric and almost as insane as their patients doctors, not completely there inmates. Only the most crazed of the mentally unstable are granted entrance here and once past the foreboding gates are never granted exit - except through death. Those admitted are soon forgotten by the outside world, their legal documents seemingly vanishing. This place's name is Lockwood's Institution of Mental Health, and for the last forty to fifty years it has been a hell for those that inhabit it.
Legally Lockwood's has been shut down for decades, but underneath the guise of well-being and health, it has been running under the radar since the 1960s.Only by word of mouth is it spread and the most dastardly of evil and unstable sent there and as quickly as those learn about it, they forget. Some don't even seem to remember having a son or daughter, sister or brother - the idea vanishes from their minds. Something sinister is happening, has been happening at Lockwood's for years, and the patients, too insane to understand, the nurses, too brainwashed to care, the doctors, the ones experimenting, doing. Ghastly torture, waterboarding, swift execution to those deemed unable to further the doctors' research any farther, it is a modern day Holocaust with no preference on the race of its victims. An inmate has been there for a year, however, and somehow knows something is not right. The ability to do something is beyond them, however ; they cannot work alone to take down a sinister organizaion of mentally deranged doctors whom have been performing their own experiments on live patients illegally. Not only that, but they are not all there themselves - the reason they were sent to Lockwood in the first place. A new inmate is coming in, however, and this person might be the former's partner-in-crime - to bring down Lockwood.
In short, it's a roleplay about a mental institution housing the batshit crazy doctors 'treating' the batshit crazy patients. The two inmates (us) attempt to work together to find a way out of Lockwood's, but their own mental instabilities will most likely hinder them in the process. I plan for it to get pretty dark (torture, right? gotta be dark) so the roleplay will be mature, but I don't plan on having anything sexual in it, although that may be debatable if it progresses in that way. This roleplay can either be FxF, MxF, or possibly - possibly - MxM. I'm not very good at the last, but I'd like to branch out and try new things. If I'm absolute shit at it, we can at least say we had a good run, right? I'm wanting the roleplay to be at least high casual, possibly advanced. I love detail and vivid imagery, but that doesn't mean you have to be Ernest Hemingway. I know I'm not Flannery O'Connor. Mistakes here and there are fine, we all make them. In fact, my s on my keyboard is pretty broken at the moment, so I may make a few oopsies that way.
I'd like a two paragraph minimum, because I rarely write under that. I don't care what gender you are behind the computer screen, or what gender you roleplay. I just want you to be literate and polite, and I'll be the same. Of course, my plot needs ironing out, but I'm pretty firm on the insane asylum thing. As for your character, the weirder, more bizarre, brutal mental problem the better. I know mine will be pretty out there, hopefully, and I want yours to be too. All said and done, I'm not a slave driver. Take your time writing - I take quality over the amount of replies you're able to shoot out in a day. If you're interested, please shoot me a PM, and answer the following, if you will. (:
*would you like to add anything to the plot? take away?
*do you do cs's? if so, how detailed? real pictures or no, if you use them at all?
These questions are for you. I don't mind whichever way you answer because the roleplay is supposed to be about us, not one of us, and compromising is a part of that. ^^
