I've made a few search threads, but I'll attempt to make this one a nice new permanent thread.
Announcement type of thing
I'm going to test this out and try to find a roleplay partner one more time if possible, but I'm still extremely busy. I'm actually looking for someone to email this time since I don't log on regularly.
I have had a few roleplay attempts in the past, but I've yet to find one that really interests me. I've been super busy, had some health issues ect. I'm sorry for flaking on a few roleplays here, but I just honestly have not been in the mood for it. I finally have a bit of time, and I would like to find a roleplay partner maybe two. Please only contact me if you have serious interest. I absolutely hate wasting my time when I have very little to put towards roleplays. Since I currently do not have an active rolepaly on the forum I only log in about once a week. My responses will be slow unless you would like to add me on aim or Skype.
Things to keep in mind
-I will be very picky from now on picking partners and plots. I tend to lose interest and put forth little effort for things that are boring to me.
-I can only post once maybe twice a week. I'm sorry my life is busy
- Patience is key. I might not respond to your pm messages within 24 hours. That is why I've mentioned working on aim or Skype, because I usually log on at least a bit a day while working on lessons. If you're not a patient person or cannot wait a bit for a response do not pm me.
-I want someone at my level or above in roleplay ability. I lose interest if the quality is low.
2/17/12- I'm very busy currently, but I'm still on the hunt for roleplays. I would like to say, please only contact me if you're truly interested. I'm tired of getting offers from people who are only half ass serious. I have a busy schedule, but I'm making time to get on here and answer messages (and roleplays even though I'm slow right now). I do not want to deal with a person that starts to plan and changes their mind. I also dislike the idea of starting a roleplay and then having a run off. :/ Don't waste my time.
-Married to a female, oh snap
-probably older than you
-English teacher/specialty comprehension and literature analysis
-busy busy always busy
What I’m offering
-Posts fitting of advanced roleplay standards, this will usually include: 4 paragraphs minimum, 900-2k words per post, minimal proof reading and editing
-Plot collaboration, fully fleshed dynamic characters, details, imagery and interest
-Doubling if necessary
-Dedication (I say around 2-3 posts per week, because I cannot post every day)
-Communication (I actually do want to talk and collaborate about what will happen in the roleplay)
-Willingness to play Male or Female and do multiple pairings (MxF, FxF, MxM)
-Few limitations (gore, swearing, violence ect are a ok)
-Developed OCs (that depending on my partner and your planning for characters. I tend to mirror)
-roleplay on the forums only
What I won’t
-Cyber related things: I’m not into roleplaying for erotica. I can do that on my own, and I can probably write something better than your responses anyway
-studentxteacher, brotherxsister stuff: I think that is self-explanatory of a big no. I refuse to do plot that is just characteronexcharactertwo anyway
-Nagging for me to post
-Fantasy: Other than Harry Potter I’m not much for dragons and wizards ect
-Jumping to romance roleplays: Unless we start out at some point with our characters having previous history, it has to be built up through the roleplay.
-Pushing things on me: I’ve had trouble with people automatically trying to cast me as their male characters…ummm, I don’t like not having a choice.
-Playing already existing characters: I will always use OCs, there is no point in using another person’s characters
-Using Anime or people pictures for my characters. I might use a picture to say "Oh, this character has eyes this color" ect, but I never use a picture to describe the looks of my character. When I want a visual for an OC, I typically hire an artist elsewhere to draw them based on my text. I cannot tell my students to avoid plagiarism, and then turn around and steal a picture claiming it as "my character". That's not right
What I’m looking for
-A roleplayer that fits the advanced standards. I know my stuff will never be perfect, and I do not expect perfection. I do not want someone who will post two very crappy paragraphs that I have to try and figure out what they mean. :/ I’m getting very tired of the casual roleplay offers. I roleplay on four different sites, and I have those elsewhere.
-Dedication: If you cannot post 2-3 times a week then we will not be suitable partners
-Open to collaboration and communication (I like to become acquainted with my roleplay partners, and I’ll actually start to lose interest if we’re just strangers.)
-Ability to play more than just a “male” or “female” character. I dislike being pushed into a male role or a female role because someone “only plays females”…try to expand your horizons a little bit.
-18+ Years: Obviously I cannot tell for sure what age you are, but I do not want to roleplay with someone the age of my students. I hope that is understandable. Thanks
This is a quick list of movies/books/particular authors that I find interesting. I’m not saying we should roleplay them as such, but possibly something in a similar environment.
Gang related (doesn't have to be hardcore maybe even Outsiders type of thing)
- Lord of the Flies
-Alice in Wonderland
-Fairy Tales (Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson and darker versions)
-Mythology: Greek or Norse
-Fahrenheit 451 (Bradbury related)
-H.G. Wells or Lovecraft (They are actually new to me, reading them now)
-Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
- Sin City (I have some of the comics, but not enough to base my ideas on them)
-X Men (I do not have the comics, my knowledge is mostly from the 90s cartoon)
-Tarantino style of things, Grindhouse
-I could list the movies I like, but that would take forever…let’s just say I go for a vast collection of dark things and lots of blood.
-End of the world
-Dark and gritty
That was a somewhat bitchy spill. If you're interested feel free to PM me ,and we can discuss creating something together. I also have a few messengers which are helpful for planning if you want to use them.

I would be interested, I just don't know how I would keep up with 2k word posts :P
"Bleh! You people make me sick! You sound like lines from a self-help book! If that's how it's going to be... I'll snuff them all out! Every last one of your sickening, happy little reasons for living!"
That would be my max on a post, because honestly I'm lazy. I won't type Mich more than that for a rokeplay. Hmm, but I'm not looking for someone with a certain amount of words. I do want an advanced roleplayer. If you want pm me some ideas and sample posts if you're worried and we can see?
Mmm, on my break and bumping from my phone. Now, back to grading.
Bump since I'm done tutoring the children.
I'd definitely be up for a Victorian or Steampunk type rp. PM me if you'd be interested.
