I've been having this craving as of late to do an American Civil War 1x1. But wait! If you hate that one, I'm also somewhat interested in any war before WWII, so we can chitchat later. Let me first get through the rules and expectations so you can get a picture of where I'm coming from:
1.) I do thread-based RPs. It's easier for me to keep up with and they tend to stay on track.
2.) I'd like decent spelling and grammar. I'm not a perfect person and neither are any of you. I just ask that I can read your posts and that you give me a few paragraphs to work with. This is why the listing is not in Free to Casual.
3.) There are times when I can respond a few times a day (although they are admittedly rare) but I'm usually going to be able to respond once a day or less frequently when college gets busier. My schoolwork does come first, but I will warn you if I have to go too long without responding. So, just be flexible with your posting speed and we'll get along fine. You can feel free to bump me if I've not given a good excuse.
Now, I have a few plots/ideas in mind. I'm looking to do one, maybe two, of these. You can either respond to this thread directly, or PM me what you want to do. Regarding romance, I'm really hoping to do one FxF and one MxF.
1.) Fairly standard romance. Before the war, a Northerner and a Southerner meet and discover their attraction. As the war goes on, can their love last, will they both survive, and what are they willing to sacrifice for their respective sides?
[Pairings could include Confederate soldier/Northern girl, Union soldier/Southern belle, and Southern belle/Northern girl]
2.) An aspiring writer follows a nurse in order to get a picture of her daily life for newspaper articles, and eventually a book. Amidst the horrors of amputations and gruesome wounds, there is also hope for life and, the writer thinks, hope for love.
[Pairings could include Female writer/nurse, Male writer/nurse or writer/patient, nurse/patient if doubling is okay]
3.) A wounded soldier is allowed leave and returns home, disgraced, only to find that there's someone waiting for him, interested in recording his story. He attempts to return to his daily life and live down the shame thrust upon him by his family that calls him a "deserter" while debating sharing anything with the near stranger.
[Not a very romantic one, but soldier/writer]
Let me know if you're interested. Thanks.
Set made by the wonderful Sole.
