Geek's Roleplay Search [M/M]
« on: April 01, 2011, 12:31:07 AM »
Welcome!

I'm looking for some new roleplays.  The information below will give you a better sense of my interests. 
If you're interested feel free to send me a private message.

Gender and Sexuality
Male     Transgender FTM     Gender-varient
Top     Switch     Bottom
Gay     Bisexual     Straight

Genres
High Fantasy     Low Fantasy     Urban Fantasy
Scifi     Post-Apocalyptic     Steampunk
Slice of Life     Crime     Comedy
Military     Action     Adventure
Mystery     Western     Historical

For more information check out my O&Os.
I like getting writing from my partner that I look forward to reading, both in content and structure. I hope that my partner will find my writing style acceptable as well. Creativity and ingenuity are appreciated. It helps to move a plot forward and make the whole experience more enjoyable. That being said, massive plot twists should be discussed in advance. I'll do my partners the same courtesy.  Post length sufficient to keep the story going is essential.

My O&O thread can be accessed HERE and will provide ample information on what I like and what squicks me out.
 
NOTICE
I'll put this here again just in case, since it seems to beg repeating.

I am not interested in either playing or playing with overly-effeminate characters.
Sometimes a gentle sub is nice, but some masculinity to back up the anatomy is a bottom line for me.
If I wanted to play M/F it would be much easier getting partners.  That should tell you my interest level.

I am also not interested in: whiny, spineless, weak, crybaby, melodramatic characters.
I occasionally play hurt/comfort and reasonable scenarios in which anguish is appropriate are fine.
I'm not, however, interested in mollycoddling a broken character for the entire game. 
I don't begrudge anyone who wants to play that out, but you won't be satisfied with me as a partner.

Any preference I have in a pairing will be bolded. 
If something is bolded I'm probably not interested in the other part.
If neither is bolded I'd gladly play either part.

Current Craving

  • Torchwood.  Especially Jack and Ianto.  I'd be happy with a COE Fix-It, AU, Classic, or whatever else we come up with.  I draw the line at Season 4 though (to be honest, I didn't even bother finishing it).
  • Battlestar Galactica.  I want to play Gaeta, I'm flexible regarding what period of his character arc it takes place in.  Anyone who is willing to play Hoshi/Gaeta would definitely make my day.  But the Chief would be fine too.

Some Additional Features I'd Find Fascinating:
  • Cyborgs - I just read an article about cyborgs, feminism, and a post-gender world.  I'd like to play with these ideas more and would be excited to discuss it further.
  • Letters/E-mail - Something where there is correspondence included in the roleplay.  It can also involve an MMORPG.  I find it fun to roleplay characters who are physically apart.
  • Large Time Jumps - I'd like to try playing things at intervals.  Like a roleplay where we only play each Christmas and show elapsed time between the years through the differences in character interaction, as an example.

Any amalgamation of these elements is fine, and they can all be absent if you choose.  They're just general curiosities.

Anime

Gunslinger Girl Universe


What's Gunslinger Girl About...

I'll do a  brief summary for those of you who haven't seen Gunslinger Girl, the anime.  It is a story about a secret agency within the Italian Government that masquerades as a charitable organization.  The agency, called Section 2, takes in injured and abandoned female children, modifies their bodies turning them into cyborgs, and brainwashes them/wipes their memory with "conditioning," a combination of drugs and training.  Once the process is complete they are trained as assassins.  Each cyborg gets an adult male handler.  The handler is responsible for their care and training, and must always accompany them on trips into the world outside the agency.  Due to the cyborg's conditioning they protect the lives of their handlers above all else and feel a sense of devotion to them.

Now for the plot...

After all the difficulty with using immature, emotionally-stunted, female children, the Italian Government decides to open a new department within Section 2.  This new department uses seventeen-twenty year old males as cyborg assassins.  Instead of pairing the cyborgs with opposite sex handlers they maintain the tradition of a male handler in the interest of preventing any romantic notions between cyborg and handler.  Each handler renames their cyborg once its memory is wiped out.  Conditioning is still used to keep the Cyborgs in check, eliminate guilt responses, and create a sense of devotion to the handler.  However, because the subjects are not modified until they reach a more advanced age, the conditioning has more profound negative effects on the human subjects regarding memory loss, physical strain, and shortened lifespan.  Still, the cyborgs are not exactly unhappy.  They have a job and they strive to do it well.  This roleplay would focus on one fratello (pair of cyborg and handler).

Why I find this captivating...

I read an academic piece on cyborgs, feminism, and a post-gender world.  I'd like to play with these concepts more and think it would be interesting to analyze masculinity through a similar lens.  We can discuss it further if you're interested in taking a meta focus.  Otherwise, I'm happy to take it at face value and have it be a straight forward scifi/adventure/romance.

The Fratello...

Calogero, the handler:
Calogero named Donato as such because after losing his job in the Naval Police, Calogero felt that the new position within the agency was a gift.  Like many of the cyborg handlers he treats Donato with sternness and sometimes impatience.  Calogero trains him hard and has a sharp tongue at times.  Calogero wants to train Donato as he was trained.  Yet, sometimes he can see how deeply his disparaging remarks cut at his cyborg.  When Donato performs admirably however, he offers rewards.  At first Calogero brought Donato gifts.  However, he soon realized that Donato did not get the same pleasure out of receiving the gifts that Calogero got from giving them.  When he asked the Cyborg what he wanted as a reward for good service, Donato answered almost at once - he wanted Calogero to teach him to play basketball (depending on who's playing Calogero and their interests just about any other sport can be swapped in).  He wanted his handler's time and attention, rather than trinkets.  Calogero never had siblings and didn't know how exactly to handle the nineteen year old who followed him around like a lost duckling for the first few weeks.  He trained Donato to be more independent than most of the other cyborgs.  Sometimes this is a blessing, and sometimes it's a curse.  Insubordination has been an occasional problem, however, he'd rather have his partner capable of some independent action.  His commanding officers haven't required that he give Donato more conditioning, at least not yet, but some of the other handlers have loudly disagreed with Calogero's methods.

Donato, the cyborg:
Palmiro entered the military by conscription.  He had no real family and was looking forward to a platoon full of brothers.  However, after a near fatal wound on the front lines he was chosen as a candidate for Section 2.  He was pronounced dead in all the military's official records, and his body was enhanced with cybernetics.  His memory was wiped clean, and he was altered.  The first thing that he saw when he woke up, disoriented and confused, was Calogero.  Calogero named him Donato, and Donato knew at once that even if he nothing else was clear, he was sure he would protect Calogero with his life.  The handler trained him hard, often resorting to disparaging him when he consistently failed at tasks, even new ones.  He strove to be better, and within a month he was a fully trained assassin.  He became friendly with some of the other cyborgs, two men around his own age, Savio and Walter.  However, his closest companion became a young girl named Claus who reminded him terribly of a person he could almost remember, but slipped through his fingers every time he got close.  It was made clear to the cyborg that Calogero expects him to exercise judgment of his own, and on the rare occasions Donato openly disagreed with Calogero on a mission, Donato thought he saw the handler look at him with something like respect.  Donato is happy enough with his life at the agency.  However, he wants more than he can reasonably ask of Calogero.  There is a line of appropriateness not to be crossed between cyborg and handler.  Donato would give anything to cross the line, but isn't willing to jeopardize Calogero's job, or his position as Donato's handler.

I'd like to play Donato, the cyborg, and wouldn't consider taking on the role of Calogero at this time.

Plots I'm Currently Interested In

WWII Roleplay

WWII Roleplay:

Doubling will be required.  I'd like to play characters A and C, which leaves you characters B and D.  It's negotiable though.  I'd swap D for C is anyone feels really strongly about it. 

Character A's brother is a mid level officer in the German military and holds to the ideals.  However, he has a younger brother that he loves more than life itself, and that brother is intersexed.   His younger brother, Character A, will wind up killed or in one of the camps if his brother doesn't find a way to hide him, so he sneaks him into the German military figuring there is no better place to hide someone from the military than inside it.  Character A is deployed to Denmark and was one of the low level soldiers overseeing the occupation before being transferred to work as a guard at Horserod (a concentration camp).  While Character A's brother may buy into the propaganda Character A does not.  At first he was simply doing what was necessary to keep himself alive, however since seeing the effects of the war first hand he has decided that inaction is unacceptable.  What changed him so drastically was meeting Character B, a prisoner in the camp, and the only person like himself that he has ever met.  The only person that is gay, that is.  The treatment of Character B at the camp has been especially harsh because of his designation and Character A cannot always protect him effectively.  However, Character A is trying to keep them both alive the only way he knows how.

Character A met a man, Character C, shortly after his transfer to Horserod.  Character  C works the railway cars that bring supplies into the camp.  As a Danish Jew it is a job that Character C loathes to his very core, however he has greater purpose for his participation.  Character D, caught Character C pouring sugar into the gas tanks of German tanks.  Character D remarked at the futility of Character C's actions.  He was a pesky irritation to the German army, nothing more.  Character D was a member of the royal family, before his cousin went into exile.  Character D was not of enough consequence to be driven into hiding, but his half-sister was.  Character D longs to get her back however doesn't have the means.  He bears a helpless anger toward his cousin, the king, for his failure to comply.  He blames the man for the loss of his sister and for leaving Character D no choice but resistance.  Character C started as a tool, nothing more, however Character D has come to care for him, though he is not yet ready to admit it, especially considering the almost irrational reverence and loyalty that Character C has for the King. 

Character D was the one to think of the railway lines as a potential means of dealing real damage to the Germans, perhaps liberating one of the camps.  Character D has taken the guise of a common citizen of Denmark, a blue collar worker, to add insult to injury.  Character C works at his side.  They met Character A in the course of their work and the three began to conspire regarding how they could liberate the camp.

There may be some real room for improvement here.  Feel free to make suggestions.

Here are some plots I'm keeping on the shelf for another time.  Feel free to read them, but I probably won't be anxious to take them on right now


Dungeons & Dragons Roleplay
I want to test run my new D&D campaign and it would be awesome to do that with one partner.  It will give me the chance to work through it and get the kinks out, maybe try some new challenges.  It will be 3.5E with massive tweaks to the deities.  I can give you loads more information than you probably want on it, but the basic premise is that a guild of thieves and a guild of assassins are on the verge of war after the unexplained death of several assassins guild members and the retaliatory killing of several thieves guild members.  The leaders of the two organizations put together a group comprised of half assassins/half thieves who are charged with finding the true murderer, during which a temporary cease fire is in place.  However the two groups have extreme distrust for one another and this party is likely to just kill each other.  The two guilds have extremely complex cultures so if you're interested say the word and I'll be happy to flood your inbox with useless information.

One Shot Roleplay

A series of one shot sex scenes.  We can change characters each time, work out a theme or a kink or something we want to focus on in each encounter and just give it a go.  I've never done anything like this so I have no idea how well it will work and I'm a little uncertain about it.  I'd be curious to give it a try, though.

I make no guarantees that every kink will be a go with me.  There are quite a few that I feel no need, desire, or inspiration to write.  However, all suggestions are totally welcome and I won't push you to write anything I suggest if you're not into it.

Biologically male and gender variant characters would be the focus.   I'm not interested in cisgendered female characters.  I'd like to focus primarily on male/male pairings, with an emphasis on masculinity.

For this it would be really cool if my partner was comfortable playing a switch.  I don't mind topping 70% of the time but I'll get bored with a parade of extremely effeminate dudes.   Also a commitment to playing characters that vary widely would be a definite bonus, since it will most likely be new characters in every exchange and they should all be individuals.

Of One Mind
Arlo was diagnosed with schizophrenia at age fifteen, but started showing symptoms around age eleven.  It was only around his fifteenth birthday that his parents learned that his best friend of four years had never been enrolled in his school, had never moved there from Pittsburgh, in fact didn't exist at all.  The diagnosis had been shattering and the when Arlo's parents tried to put him on anti-psychotics Arlo tried to kill himself.  He was happiest when he was off in a delusion, because reality was frightening and confusing.  It wasn't only that the world was entirely different and that Kaleo was gone, but that he wasn't who he thought he was when he was on those drugs.   As the years went by Kaleo went from friend to lover.  No matter what happened to Arlo, as long as he wasn't taking the medicine, Kaleo was always by his side. 

Kaleo needed Arlo as much as Arlo needed him, perhaps more so, because without Arlo, Kaleo was merely a disembodied voice crying out from the darkness.  Whenever, Arlo took the medication Kaleo felt like he was drowning, and so he did all that he could to keep Arlo with him, even if it meant that Kaleo couldn't always be nice.  Kaleo has had to do some things that he's not proud of.  He's alienated Arlo from his family, guilted him out of treatment, shouted and screamed at him.  Over the four years following Arlo's diagnosis Kaleo learned how to make Arlo bend to his will.  However, it's all for the greater good.  Because he and Arlo, they're meant for each other, and anything else would just be wrong.

((In case this isn't clear, Kaleo is Arlo's primary delusion, and the story will take place when Arlo is nineteen.  I will play Arlo.))

Guided Path
In a Native American tribe as part of a coming of age ritual boys when they reach the age of maturity are sent into the wild with hallucinogenic drugs.  The boys cannot return until they have found their spirit guides.  When a spirit guide comes to them the two engage in combat or a chase.  Once the human has bested their spirit guide the creature becomes a part of them.  After that point the human can change form into their spirit animal fully and at will.  The people almost always come back changed.  These personality changes are often attributable to the nature of their spirit guide.  This would be a story regarding two boys who were best friends when they set out on their journey, and getting to know one another again after coming back changed.  Then shortly after they return from the ritual the tribe goes to war with a neighboring tribe and the two set off together to fight.

Ai No Kusabi (Raoul x Katze)

Raoul, a biologist and sociologist, finds himself the target of an assassin. He believes that one of the Tanugaura elites is trying to get rid of him and Iason has suggested that until he catches whoever has put a price on his head he will be hunted like an animal. He suspects that it is an elite that covets his station or perhaps his scientific and material achievements.  He does not realize just how wrong he is.  What he needs is someone with a knowledge of the scumbags of Midas and Ceres, also he needs someone who has the ability to do research into confidential files, he needs an expert hacker. When it comes to these objectives there is none better than Katze: head of the black market and arguably the best hacker in Tanugura (Midas for sure).

Iason in an attempt to help Raoul solve his problem lends him Katze, his furniture or rather his former furniture who is still in his employ. At first Raoul is disappointed in the inadequate aid that Iason gives him. What does he want with mongrel ex-furniture anyway? He has perfectly satisfactory furniture of his own.  However, after several days of conversing with Katze he cannot deny the man's intellect.  There are several problems, however.  For one, Katze smokes like a chimney, a distasteful habit that has made Raoul's apartment stink.  Katze is bold nearly to the point of impertinence and the insane theory he seems to be formulating regarding Raoul's situation seems entirely implausible.  However, worst of all, the old used furniture is undeniably attractive. 

The red haired mongrel is incredibly intelligent, a trait which the scientist is quite dazzled by. Raoul tells himself that Katze is just interesting, a subject to study, and an example of how natural selection can create such desirable traits.  Yet he also feels the growing desire to take Katze, to bed the castrated mongrel and relieve him of what little freedom he has left.  Raoul is desperate to to take him as a pet, the only way he knows how to channel this overwhelming desire.  However, he is well aware that his maker doesn't love him the way she loves Iason and such actions would not be permitted.  Raoul knows that Iason would agree to giving him Katze permanently, if only he worked up the courage to ask. Still he doesn't know what he would do with Katze practically given the opportunity.

Frivolous Adventure Stories

  • A serving boy, and best friend to the crowned prince, finds a dragon egg.  Dragons are rare and those who find and bond with a dragon in its first moments of life have a lifelong bond with the dragon and is the only person a dragon will bear.  By finding the dragon and becoming his rider the boy ascends the military ranks and earns himself land and a title. 
    ((I'll play either the dragon or the serving boy.))
  • Two lands are separated by magic, as a result of a peace treaty.  The two lands are very different but no one still living has ever seen the other side.  Two children learn that they can cross the magic barrier, become best friends and occasionally crossing into the other's lands while playing.  Now teenagers, the children are being pulled in different directions and must choose how to go forward.
  • Characters wind up in a (story, book, film) and decide to try and change the ending.  They go on an epic quest to change things that are going to happen and may potentially screw up the entire world of the story, or make it far better.

Hurt/Comfort

  • My character is a rape victim.  (The incident will have happened before the game.)  He was too ashamed to go to the police, didn't say anything to anyone, except your character, who's trying to help him get his life back together, and is probably trying to convince my guy to go to the police.  My character won't be willing to talk much about it, or even state his needs.  So a character willing to look beyond what's going on on the surface would be ideal.
  • My character just lost a (parent/child/sibling) and no one seems to know how to act around him.  Your character is not exactly a friend, but can see he's not handling it well and is there for him.
