To Advanced: Looking for a competant, active partner
Never made an interest check before, so I will do my best to put in the necessary information; but I am willing to answer any questions that may arise via PM.
I am experienced in many forms of writing, and enjoy taking part in almost any genre. I have no plots currently in mind, but I like to develop these with my partner in order to craft a story we both want to be a part of. I have no problem with mature themes, as long as they are handled maturely; by which I mean it should be handled with good taste, and should only arise if it is relevant and plot driven.
I generally prefer to RP in PM because I tend to be protective of my writing (even when it's not my best work (perhaps especially)) and yes I just did a double parenthesis.
I ONLY do original characters. I am not much interested in playing an existing character. I either won't do them justice, or won't have total freedom; so to me it's a lose lose.
I will always play a male character, as my main, because I am not overly confident in my ability to realistically portray a female. I have been working on this with side characters, though.
I don't really have a lot of rules or anything, but I expect someone who will want to actively work on our story, someone who knows how to properly construct a sentence, someone with a great sense of continuity, someone who is willing to talk to me OOC and discuss the direction of the story, characters, whether or not it is keeping them interested, and is willing to compromise if we happen to disagree about something (it happens, we're only human.)
So, just so that you have somewhere to start from, I will list some of the genres that tend to interest me most:
Medieval (fantasy/ non-fantasy) - This is my bread and butter, I love it. However I have two of these currently on the go, so it would have to be a fantastic idea for me to pick up a third.
Recent past/ or modern noir style (detectives, private investigators, that sort of thing) - I have never done one of these, but find it rather intriguing.
Post-apocalyptic - I tend to love these dystopian worlds, whether it be due to nuclear war, invasion, mutation, whatever the case. A world would need to be crafted that is able to keep the RP interesting though. Just surviving nothingness alone is simply not interesting enough for me.
Zombies - I LOVE zombie stories: movies, books, video games, They're all awesome. I have never done a zombie RP though. Could be fun with the right partner.
Pirates - It can be great fun, but there needs to be some sort of element in place to keep it interesting (like my comments on post-apocalyptic) because otherwise it comes down to sitting on a boat.
Modern era/ realistic - The modern world can be fascinating, there are thousands of opportunities for great stories in every day life but (and I hate to sound redundant) there has to be an intriguing element, otherwise it is just another day to day life. I have one of those, don't need another.
Sci-fi - if done right, it can be a beautifully crafted universe with intriguing characters and interesting environments... if not done correct it becomes the phantom menace, enough said?
Superhero/ meta-human - I love superheros, and I love the intricate stories that often go with them. If you have an idea for this, or would like to build one with me, let me know. (I am willing to do marvel or dc universe for this one, as well as original universe.)
Almost any other genre - like I said these are just my usual go to suggestions, I am open to all sorts of ideas. If you think you'd like to work with me, just send me a message and we will discuss the possibilities. I am a very open and friendly guy (for the most part.)
Lately I have had an idea for a dark medieval fantasy plot line, where I would play a conquering warlord invading a new land. My Character comes from the far south, a chaotic land ruled by a ruthless warlord (my character's father.) The people there are sturdy and strong, as only the strong survive, and can often live well into their hundreds before showing any signs of old age. My character has gathered an army and marched north to conquer the land of men (and perhaps any other fantasy species desired.) I have more in mind beyond that, and I also have a level of flexibility. I would love a chance to discuss this with anyone who has an idea for, and a desire to write, a character in this story. Pm me your ideas people.
Craving a superhero plot right now, for no particular reason (probably from watching too many justice league reruns.) As state above, I am only interested in original characters though; although, I do not currently have a plot in mind, I do have a character in mind so a plot should be easy to form.
Look forward to hearing from you,
