Looking for 1x1s with substance and plot
Because I'm tired of shallow action plots, lame Steampunk tricks and boring romance. Whatever happened to thrill and adventure...? Mystery and intrigue...? Layers and layers of story piling up with complex characters that live, breathe and grow alongside you as their writer...?
I dunno'...maybe I expect too much...
I just want the stories I take part in to be fun, fast-paced (story-wise, I don't need you to be able to post every day), interesting and constantly changing/evolving. I've become all but completely bored with anything romance (whatever happened to platonic friends and/or enemies? Why do they always have to be lovers...?) so that tends to leave me with a shallow pool to select from. Not many of my characters are all that...interested in romance. They're old campaigners (not in the AD&D sense), uninterested or otherwise unavailable due to marriage or the like. My characters all have complex histories of their own to start well before I plop them into a role-play (for text, anyway. Table-top I tend to draft my characters off-the-cuff.) So they don't often have room for romance.
Just something to keep in mind.
Otherwise I'm a lover of medieval fantasy (sometimes with a bit of modern mixed in). I enjoy playing colorful, non-human characters of various shapes, sizes, sexes and ambitions. I recently developed a race of sentient moth-people, to give you an idea. I like unconventional things, what can I say. lol
I myself am an advanced writer and would like for my partners to at least be at an intermediate level. If you can give me three paragraphs or more of college-level grammar and spelling, I'm happy. =)
I prefer 1x1s via PM, just easier for me.
I have few limits, but if you absolutely MUST have romance in the story, let me know ahead of time so I can select characters that can suit that scenario. (We'll have to brainstorm a bit to make certain the characters are compatible, etc. However, I have had it happen on rare occasion that my characters become slowly interested, romantically, in the other character. If the attraction happens naturally as per the character's actions, and romance follows as a result, that I'm okay with. I just generally don't want to...'know' it's going to happen...does that makes sense? xD I like it better when my characters surprise me with their sudden infatuations. lol)
Other than that, I have no great plot ideas right this second, but at a moment's notice I could have a hundred for you. lol, I have no problem chatting with my partners to plan a bit, just so long as we're not mapping out a freaking event script. I like being surprised with the story, y'know. I don't want to know everything. lol
I do have the habit of playing multiple characters so, hopefully you're okay with that. Other than that I'll use disposable NPCs for certain plot points.
I'm pretty friendly and easy-going, just PM me if you're interested as I don't check these threads all that often.
I generally dislike romance.
Not interested in urban/modern stories.
Anything with "high school" in the story = no thanks.
It's also a "no thanks" on Steampunk.
Not into vampires currently, unless your model/mythos is unique.
