Hello! Despite a warning about a wall of text, here you are, so let's get down to business! Plots are at the top, personal rules and stuff are at the bottom, and everything is candy-colored because if it's too much to read, at least it's pretty to look at.
These are listed very generally in order of appeal (and I'd prefer to write for the asterisked characters):
MxM Pairings with Plots
~ Guard & Temple Sacrifice*
Every 75 years, the priests of the Temple read the stars, the position of the planets, and engage in other religious hoopla to determine the identity of their next sacrifice. This sacrifice, an infant at the time, is taken from his parents and brought to the temple to be raised in isolation from all other people and corrupting influences. To reduce his exposure to human toxins and preserve his purity, he is guarded and tended by one guard. After 25 years of living an untainted life, the young man is killed to ensure the continued prosperity of the world for the next 50 years.
The current sacrificial lamb is 21, and he's spent every day since he turned 16 trying to seduce his guard as a way out of being killed in four years. His guards (he's gone through a few now) are too disciplined to give in, and they quit as soon as the pressure becomes too much, whether that takes two years or two days. The newest guard may or may not last long, and may or may not give in.
(The T.S. I see as being more of the submissive of the two characters, though his attitude is far from meek and he's not going to be bossed around)
~ Captain & Renegade*
A sci-fi/outer space one: a captain of a peace-keeping vessel is taken hostage by, for lack of a more nuanced term, a pirates ship. I don't know much about the details of the world, but for sure there's a huge divide between the tightly-controlled world of the peace-keepers and the loose, drifting colonies of the human colonists who refused to be a part of such a rigid system. What the free colonists call scavenging ships (out looking for things to trade for basic necessities like food and water) are called pirates by the keepers, so the renegades aren't all bad and the captains are only doing what they think needs to be done: cleaning up the trash. (I mostly just want to write a handsome, gentlemanly space-pirate with engine burns <3)
MxM/FxF Pairings with Plots
Another sci-fi/outer-space one I can't think of a title for. If anyone's interested in a roleplay that doesn't ultimately involve sex, I'd like to have an asexual relationship between two characters. As long as it's sci-fi (spacespacespaceit'ssocool) there doesn't have to be anything particular with the world or the plot; I was thinking of a character who is part of a peace-keeping force but is absolute shit at it (if optimistic and energetic) and is eventually partnered with the only other peace-keeper the supervisors think will be able to tolerate him/her.
FxF Pairings with Plots
~ Blacksmith & Adventurer*
A blacksmith who wants nothing more than to get into exciting predicaments and see the world convinces an adventurer (just stopping by for a patch-up of her gear) to bring her along for the ride. The adventurer, far from a responsible or mature individual, agrees, brings the blacksmith along, and gets bored of the arrangement by the next town over. After finally getting away from home, the blacksmith certainly isn't going back and she isn't about to let a ne'er-do-well spendthrift get away with trying to dump her on someone else. One of those slow-burning, let's-bicker-a-lot-before-we-start-to-like-each-other sort of stories.
~ Captain* & Subordinate
Another sci-fi/space-y one! I don't have much plot in mind for this one, but I like the idea of a ship's captain and her dedicated second-in-command gradually falling in love (Probably would be more of a slow-burner as well, but not necessarily, I guess). World-building can be done collaboratively so that we both have equal input.
Merman x Male Human*
Hero x Villain* (with this one, the villain can be either a truly bad one, or more of a cheerful, trouble-making one)
Vampire x Hunter* (both bodacious ladies or no deal)
(not much else is here, sorryyyyy)
Incest of any kind
Fandoms (unique characters in unique worlds are too wonderful to pass up)
BDSM (mainly because I don't know much about it and I don't like what I have heard)
As far as rules go, I am not going to be a demanding partner, I can promise you that now. I usually reply about once a day, and as long as you can reply about once a week, that's fine with me. And as long as you give me two or three paragraph to go on, we should be fine (if you give me more than that you are an angel and nothing you can say will convince me otherwise). I don't have any limits, really, besides those stated above.
On the downside:
- If you drop the roleplay without warning, I will assume you just got bored and wanted to stop. I won't heckle you, ask to make sure you're okay, or try to bully you into replying. This also means, though, that if you simply went on hiatus, I may not remember where we left off, as I assumed you weren't coming back.
- I get really shy with introducing plot-twists as I always feel like I'm stealing total control for the plot. I don't want the burden to fall all on you, so if you're getting bored but don't want to be bored, let's talk and we can flesh out some further ideas for the story.
- Maybe I have a destructive touch? I guess I should warn about that. I'm not sure why, but a lot of stories I start with people fall through and they vanish into the ether, sometimes before they're even out of the planning stage. If you figure out what I'm doing wrong in the course of my roleplaying with you, please let me know if only so that I can do something about it.
- In the seven or so years I've been roleplaying, I have always been the male in MxF pairings and always the dominant male in MxM pairings. I'm not complaining about this in the slightest, I'm just saying anything else is new to me, and I have very limited experience with either role in FxF pairings. I also believe that dominant/submissive labels are in general very limiting and that there is a give-and-take in most same-sex relationships. If you are interested in that, I will love you, but I won't complain if you'd rather stick with the more traditional way of managing bedroom affairs.
That's all I've got! PM me if you are interested in anything!
