OOC for Genkai + TheBouquineuse
Alright we have this established:
> A slice of life roleplay developing main and side characters over several decades
> Letters and other correspondences will play a vita role in the story
> Sexuality and gender roles should be challenged
I'm sure I'm missing something but I'll remember later. Genkai is so old haha. Anyway, we should figure out a starting point and then how to map out at least where they'll get separated, how/why/etc. And then of course there should be some meetings of the two, meeting the side characters they've heard about. I will make a note that if you do have time on your hands, "Five Centimeters Per Second" is a visual masterpiece and it has a lot of realistic situations which have inspired me to get back into slice of life. Anyway, did you have a main character in mind? Male or female? A starting age? I think we could do a series of very short/minimal character sheets to just outline our ideas of their nature/hobbies/etc and then add on as we go along. Did you have any idea how much you'd think you could start off by posting? Word count or paragraph count? I just wanna know where I should aim for first off. And is there a season you'd like to start in. I'm keen on: Winter, Fall, Summer, Spring...those are listed in order of most to least favorite setting. And any themes or symbolizing you wanna look into? It might help us pinpoint a title at least.
