Greetings and salutations to all those who may read this. Evidently, I am new to this forum and shall henceforth be known as Skye Autumn, referencing a certain total badass and amazing woman quite directly. I myself am well able to use the english language for my enjoyment, and have the amazing ability to levitate if I close my eyes and hold my breath (in a zero-gravity room).
I do enjoy a nice and cozy roleplay (which is what I'm here for, incidentally), themed anywhere between medieval ancientestry and futuristic science fiction, I'm not too picky but if it has a dark tone to it I'd be delighted. Something I really admire in a roleplay - as in general - are mythological and/or legendary creatures, anything ranging from hydras and chimeras up to demons and vampires (even sparkly ones). But really, whatever's far enough from boring old reality is fine for me. As for the 'size' of an rp, anything's fine with me, but if I had to choose I'd most likely participate in smaller groups from two to four participants. Unless it's really well structured, fleshed out and being partially controlled by someone I guess, never had anything like that. All in all, judging from how I understand the guidelines of this forum, I guess I'll stick to the Casual/Advanced section (probably including the 1on1 part).
A few words about my writing style, I'm usually taking my time, making long, detailed posts unless the situation calls for something different. I understand that there is context requiring one-liner posts, but in the long run I prefer a drawn out kind of writing and kinda expect posts to be understandable without the need for the reader to fill in punctuation or missing letters for themselves. Don't intend to come across as rude, but that kinda thing can and has been a little frustrating in the past...
As for my experience with rp, I've done a fair amount of it across different surfaces. Am part of an ongoing long-term rp with stats and stuff, though that got a little stale. Been doing a lot of it in Guild Wars 2, but that one sadly died down when the guild fell apart and I ran out of people to rp with (hit me up if you're doing that!). I was part of the semi-official Warframe Tumblr-roleplay until it derailed into 'who's-the-sluttiest-lesbian' and 'it's-totally-not-what-it-looks-like-boo-hoo' (blech). And some irregular spontaneous discontinued rp via messengers with friends.
I'd like to participate in both original ideas of rp and 'fandom' like things occuring in a preset, existing system or loosely sticking to an existing lore. An idea that always fascinated me was doing an rp within the lore of aforementioned sparkly vampires, because that one's really well made and offers a lot of potential for roleplaying (even without any sort of romance associated), but I'm not really getting my hopes up for that. Regardless, I could see myself assembling a detailed lore explanation of this to draw in open-minded folks. Other existing lores I could imagine roleplaying are those of Dragons Dogma, Dark Souls, Bayonetta, Mirrors Edge, Sanctum, the OLDER Resident Evil stuff, Vampire: The Masquerade(it would be REALLY interesting to rp a Malkavian) or Guild Wars 2 in games, The Passage/The Twelve, Lovecraft in general, Dawn of War and associates in books and Bakemonogatari/Nisemonogatari, Kami Sama No Memo Chou, Princess Resurrection and Death Note in Anime/Manga - also a good assembly of themes I'm interested in.
I'm likely going to lurk for a bit until I feel like I got the gist of how things work around here, and then speak up/participate in given ideas/write my sparkly lore summary. Also I'm misusing this thread as a link in my signature so people can get a general idea of what makes me tick, and may add things I forgot in my brief introductary writing. So long, looking forward to interact with you dear ladies and sirs.

Gathering interests I'd join up on right away, no questions asked:
Vampire the Masquerade - Playing a Malk. The more I think about it, the more voices in my head scream crazy ideas at me. I might marry the first person to invite me to such an RP.
Twilight lore themed - lore based character development, not necessarily romance, combat is possible and likely in one form or another. I'd likely play a Vamp, less likely a Wolf.
28 Days Later inspired post-apocalyptic survival scenario - I basically have a discontinued character and basic story waiting to be picked up again, but might need some time to be revamped.
