Seeking a partner for role-play based around the Hunger Games!
This is an idea I've had for quite a while now, though the recent surge of interest in the Hunger Games combined with the release of the second movie in the series led me to go ahead and make this thread. To make a long story short I'm looking for a competent, literate and reliable role-player to team up with who has a decent grasp of the various themes explored within the setting. I do, however, wish to work with original rather than canon characters. That's not to say we can't include a few canon characters in the background where it makes sense - such as Effie Trinket being the one to do the reaping - but we won't be playing them ourselves. I guess that might be a deal breaker for some people, but I'm not really looking to role-play Katniss and Peeta here.
Now bear in mind this is still a work in progress. My ideal partner is someone who will help me craft an experience that we'll both enjoy instead of letting me do all the work. I do have a few ideas, of course - else I wouldn't have bothered making the thread in the first place - but I expect there to be a healthy compromise so that we both get to shape things to our tastes and smooth various factors out before we sink our teeth and claws into the role-play itself. I will also point out that the role-play isn't necessarily going to have a happy ending. One or both of our characters will die at some point during the role-play. Perhaps they'll be killed by a particularly ruthless career tribute late in the game. Maybe they'll team up and turn on each other once they realise that they're the only survivors. Again, this won't be to everyone's tastes but...I'm not exactly aiming to retell Katniss' experience here.
Romance is an option, but shouldn't be the focus of the role-play. Survival will be the main theme to be explored. I'll be role-playing a male character and I'm happy for my role-playing partner to portray a character of either gender. If a romance is going to happen - and again, I'll stress that it won't be the driving force of the role-play - then I'm not too picky when it comes to gender provided males are portrayed like males and females are portrayed like females. I won't be doing anything too steamy, though. As a rule of thumb both of our characters will be 16-18 years old.
At any rate, if you're interested and feel like this is something to your tastes then feel free to send me a PM or just post in this thread! I hope my low post count won't scare people away - I'm no stranger to role-play but I am new to the site.

I would have taken this up if I wasn't already in a HG RP. Good luck finding a partner though. Oh, and here's a free bump!
