Female looking for female or male characters for darker, semi- romantic RP
Hello. :) I'm looking for a couple of partners to try out some ideas of mine, I couldn't care less about your gender, however know that I prefer (at least at this moment) to play female characters. I plan on branching out of that someday, but for right now I'm getting back into the swing of things after a while away due to some personal problems, and I want to start with what interests me most. When I say darker, what I mean is that these RP's will at least try to address the grittier side of life. So mental illness, drug addiction, homelessness, etc. Things I like to see in a partner's writing are: Character flaws, detail, believably, etc. However I don't expect classic literature to bust out of the words in your replies and do a little song and dance for me, so don't feel pressured. ;)
Here's a sample of some of my writing:
Barack Obama burst out of the just-grounded plane without any of his usual pomp and circumstance. A flurry of tiny assistants buzzed around him, their multicolored ties flapping about their starched collars in a show of anxiety. A few of the braver press advanced immediately, and the others followed like a wave crashing into the drowning, suddenly very small man.
"Mr. President!" One shouts as he grows near, pushed on by his fellow reporters. "What's your opinion on all this?" He waits patiently like a young puppy, others around him rolling their eyes and sighing at his obvious lack of experience and most simply shouting their own questions above and around and in and among him. But the president hears. For some reason, perhaps out of a desire to address the Country in some way, to assuage the fears and panic that had risen in all of them in simply a few hours time, he stops, he clears his throat, and he speaks.
"I believe-" Here his voice cracks in a way that is most un-Presidential. "That this Country, this world, is strong enough to overcome any obstacle, even a horrifying disease like we are presented with here today." But there is doubt, uncertainty and fear in his voice, and every person there could smell it like a shark because the same stench reeked in all of them... Who would protect them now?
Anyways, here are a few basic plot ideas I have, feel free to suggest another if you're interested. These are pretty much going to be centered around romance, but if you prefer the plot to be platonic, that's also fine.
Mental patient x mental patient
Homeless person x college student
Druggie musician x fan
Outlaw x law enforcement
Regular x cult leader
older alcoholic x 18-ish innocent
So, shoot me a pm or reply if you're interested.
