Current Availability: I've got three which is all I wanted for now, but if you can really hook my interest...
Playing Both Sides Against the Middle - Written off-site - with DarkCamalaFYVOE
- with Holly MarlowMentoring the Fallen
- with Kiari03
Although we all like literacy and plot development, what I'm really craving is a partner who can play an interesting character
. Not just a doting love-bunny. I love it when characters come across as multifaceted and realistic; eg, even if your character is the love of my character's life, I'd like to see them disagree or even get annoyed with me once in a while. PM me with your interest, and bear in mind I'm in the UK so my replies will be according to my time zone! :)
I'm open to plot-heavy long term RPs (my favourite) but because I'm in the midst of copy-editing a novel I'll also entertain some short-term smutty fun if that's all you're looking for. I'm really just after some leisure writing, but bear in mind that I always trying to deliver quality no matter what level I'm writing at.
PLEASE COME TO ME WITH YOUR IDEAS! I love to brainstorm.Green

~Beauty tames the wild beast (Action, survival)
Got this idea after watching King Kong! Similar sort of thing really, a group travels to a remote destination to investigate reports of a legendary beast. Our characters can be anyone who is part of the crew, but I quite like the idea of the female not actually being the glamorous lead actress, but the quiet, unassuming sound-girl. A survival adventure with loads of scope and flexibility depending on what you'd like to see, but ultimately I picture there being a disastrous failure of the mission which leaves our two characters separated from the group and trying to get back to a muster point, all the while fleeing from the 'beast' who seems to have a peculiar interest in YC.
Well we have to have some secrets... (Light+, intense romance, wide variety of themes!)
Our two characters are in fact already in a relationship. They are both successful and attractive, although all is not as it seems. He tells her that he works in a forensics lab, working on important (but entirely sheltered and safe) investigative projects in a basement. In truth, he's part of a secret branch of the police who go underground and operate in some pretty dangerous arenas.
She tells him that she works as an events promotor/co-ordinator for an entertainment production company. In truth, she is (depending on what level you'd prefer) a burlesque dancer, underwear or nude model, or even perhaps a porn actress. Up to you.
Because YC genuinely cares for MC, and wants to keep her relationship with him special and separate from the darker world she moves in to make money, she pretends to be 'saving herself' for when they can live together and/or get married. So the physical contact between them is nonsexual. MC finds this hard, but he adores YC and is willing to wait until she's ready. (Yes I have seen "the Guru", and yes I am aware this is kind of like Heather Graham's situation in that film.)
Our plot could be based around a particularly hazardous case MC is assigned to, where he has to go underground, undercover to investigate a criminal boss. As part of this, he has to attend a meeting which takes place in a club. A club where YC is working. Naturally, our characters spot each other, but they can't say anything because it would blow MC's cover and mean his certain death.
Then we'd have the two-fold fun of our characters having to continue to pretend to not know each other when they see each other on the job, but behind closed doors they confront each other about lying about their work. But when the dust clears from this argument, the realisation occurs to them that they don't have to keep up the illusion of chastity anymore, and both of them are a lot more physically skilled than the other previously realised.
It's a living (Modern/Romance/Alternative culture/jealous)-
Kind of related to the above idea, although I've had it in my ideas thread for longer! I'd like to explore the tensions between someone who gets into a relationship - or is already in a relationship - with an alternative model (think Suicide Girls) who performs in burlesque shows and does a lot of nude and semi-nude photography. How the guy would struggle to square supporting her talents and choice of career, and the inherent jealousy from knowing that other people are seeing her in ways that he would prefer to reserve only for himself. There's loads that could be added to this idea, and of course I would flesh this out considerably - and perhaps even combine it with one or more other plot hooks - if someone was interested in the general principal.
Crossing cultures (Modern/Romance/Ethnic barrier)-
Apologies if this touches a political nerve for anyone, but I thought of setting an RP in a hypothetical near-future world, where fear and paranoia have turned the USA into a land of hatred and bigotry. Things have gone far beyond the original campaign promise of banning Muslims from entering the country, anyone whose family originates from countries 'compromised be terrorism' and who hasn't been in the States for at least three generations, is being deported.
You would play a young woman of Middle Eastern ethnicity (but who also considers herself entirely American, speaks English as a first language, etc) who is facing deportation, and perhaps even temporary custody in a holding camp whilst waiting. I could play a soldier or official in charge of rounding up people for deportation who takes notice of the girl and gradually strikes up a relationship, or possible a friend or a neighbour who's had a crush on her for some time and tries to find a way to help her.
Lots of variables and flexibility for this plot.
Fallout - Riding the Railroad on a Fake Ticket (Fallout 4/Adventure/Romance)-
My character is a guy who, for one of a variety of reasons, pretends to be a synth in order to get the Railroad to take him under their protections. Reasons could include:
- He's an undercover spy from the Institute of the Brotherhood of Steel, sent to infiltrate them and discover their headquarters
- He's on the run from one of said organisations and believes the Railroad will be able to hide him most effectively
- He simply wants to 'disappear' because of discontent with his life, or because he's committed a crime or someone thinks he had committed a crime
The Railroad take him in and, to make sure his stay with them is extended, he claims to have information which is useful to them. I have several ideas about what all this could be about, but Ill gloss over that for now.
The main premise is that he finds himself working alongside a young woman (your character) whom he takes a liking to, but of course cannot act on it because of course hes supposed to be a synth. At some stage, perhaps after he and the young woman have become close friends, it is revealed that hes actually a human (Im supposing when they see him bleed) and both characters have to deal with the consequences of his lies, and whether the circumstances they find themselves in are enough to overcome his betrayal, and the mixed emotions arising from the fact that his human nature means that their relationship could take a different course if they wanted it to.
Fallout - The Tenpenny Twins (Fallout 3/extreme)-
This is a story I started with someone once, but it didn't get all that far. Basically a young couple are the successors of Allistair Tenpenny after the ghouls took over Tenpenny tower. The time I played this story before the two of them were actually brother and sister, so it was an incest story, but that can be the case this time or not.
The two of them have a new home in the wasteland, and basically use it to go out and inflict misery and depravity on all parties they meet. The main fun of this story is the raider-style gratuitous violence. There's lots of scope with this one, so contact me if you want to know or discuss more!
The Vampire's Refuge (Modern fantasy) -
The existence of vampires is little known to humans, but there are those who have acquired the knowledge. YC is one such a person, and could either be a normal human or have some kind of magic powers/witchcraft. She's been seeking proof of vampires in the city for a long time, and finds it when she stumbles across an encounter between some rival vampires one night.
My character is the heir of a smaller vampire family originating from the eastern kingdoms whose elders (father, uncle, et al) are currently back in their kingdom of origin seeking help to secure their position in the west. As such, the vampire is looking after his family's part of the western domain by himself, which was thought to be risk-free until another vampire clan decided to try to launch a double-cross hit on him, arranging a peace treaty meeting but instead trying to kill him. This is the encounter your character witenesses.
The vampire survives, but is badly injured. Your character approaches and allows him to feed on her in order to recover, unaware of that doing so will bind her to him in ways she can't understand. She begins to find herself drawn to seeing him again and again.
From that point on, MC realised he needs to keep a low profile until his father/uncle/whatever returns with word from the easter kingdoms about whether help will be sent. MC knows going out to seek blood is far too risky, which is why it suits him well when YC returns to him again and again. Perhaps when he discovered her magical abilities, he even exploits her to use charms or spells to help him remain hidden from the rival vampires who seek to take him down, or even launch some kind of a counter-hit. But the main thrust of the story - in keeping with your intentions as I understand them - would be on his tacit reliance on YC for sustainance.
We could also say, however, that keeping a long-term 'blood doll' is in some way outside the rules of modern vampirehood. Or alternatively, maybe the father/uncle returns with a prospective bride for MC, the marriage being part of the deal for receiving help, and greatly complicated by finding that MC is keeping a blood-doll for himself who, by this stage, he is reluctant to let go of.
Plenty of flexibility to discuss on this one!
In the Wake of Flight 19 (Light/Adventure/Survival) -
Our characters are on a plane together which crash lands in a notorious part of the ocean. They wash up on an island, believing themselves to be the only survivors, and despite being erstwhile antagonists, they realise they have to work together to stay alive. And naturally, this isn't some quiet island without sinister threats of it's own.
Always got a hankering for a furry RP!
I do enjoy playing as and with anthro/furry characters, and always like to have at least one such RP one the go. Right now, I don't. If furries are your thing, take a quick detour to my furry request thread
Playing the lead - (Mainly romance / Werewolves / ideal for band nuts)
An idea I've had kicking around for ages, it's never got any interest but I remain hopeful!
There's a 17 year old girl who is an absolutely virtuosic guitarist. She was picked up by the agents young, and it's been a few months she released her first album (for a RL reference, listen to a few tracks from the Joe Satriani album "Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards") and she's enjoying massive success and publicity. Because she's not a "pop" artist she's not in the mainstream press that much; you're more likely to see her featured in Q Magazine or Total Guitar than in the papers or celeb mags. Fame hasn't changed her, she's the fun-loving, cheeky, confident girl her friends have always known.
Less well known is that she's also a werewolf. She keeps this a closely guarded secret. In fact it's what influenced her decision to pursue a music career in the first place; she knows finding love and settling down in one place is unlikely with lycanthropy in your life, so she chooses a lifestyle where she can party, have loads of friends who love her (or, at least, say they do...) and do what she enjoys doing, and she has a nice normal excuse for avoiding relationships; the rock-star lifestyle just isn't conducive to it.
Introducing The Children of Marrok; an underground society of werewolves who wish to expose the existence of lycanthropy to the world. They bide their time because they know that small instances of exposure would be explained away by sceptics, and instead wait for the day when they can reveal themselves en masse. When the female character above started to become famous, they approached her to join, knowing that prominent members would aid their cause, but she was not interested. They've tried to persuade her ever since, and are less than pleased about her refusal.
The girl goes on tour to promote her album, and spends a few days in another country playing a few shows. Her production company hires local musicians to provide the back-up, as usual. Among them this time is a 20 y/o guy who's in the thick of trying to make it with his own band, but is taking time out of that to play rhythm guitar for this girl. He also gets to play a few supplementary solos, but other than that he's just there to support her with basic rhythm. During the few days, this boy and this girl hit it off and become great friends, but in no time at all it's all over and she has to go home. Ce la vie, that's the lifestyle she chose. But they do keep in touch via social networks, etc.
A few months later, her agent and her family put on a huge 18th birthday party for her, which takes the form of a private open-air concert where they invite all her favourite bands to do a few of their songs. One of the surprise bands is the band of the guy she met in who have since been signed up and are enjoying the beginnings of a promising career of their own. Naturally, she's excited to see him, and as the party dies down they seek each other out and try to get to talk alone...which is difficult because everyone else wants a piece of her too. But eventually they get some space and get talking.
And from there it's pretty open. Possible plot ideas could be that she tries to keep her lycanthropy a secret even from him, but it proves difficult. Perhaps the life of a musician becomes so stifling on their relationship that the only way to free themselves up to be together is to fake their own deaths! But the truth of their disappearance is not hidden from all; the Children of Marrok know they are still alive, and come after them. Yeah...OK...all that last bit is a bit vague.
Concentric Friendship (Light/long-term) -
YC is a popular, well-liked girl at university. MC is someone who knows her, but is very much part of a different circle for whatever reason - eg, culture, interests. YC and MC are casually friends most of the time. Every once in a while she'll meet up with him, especially when things are getting a little too intense in her own social circle of there's some kind of a falling out or drama and she just needs someone to talk to. In short, this is a story about MC trying to escape the 'friendzone' and gain YCs interest. I'd prefer it if YC wasn't the obnoxious, oblivious type. She's just so used to being surrounded by friends that 'male friends' are more normal to her than boyfriends, so it would never have occured to her that MC was interested in more.
To mix it up a little, there could be a boyfriend on the scene, or another person in her circle who is trying to make moves on her.
The Spirit of the Rules (light/short term)
I'd like to try an RP where two characters are sexually involved, but cannot or won't have full penetrative sex. Maybe they're under the thumb of religion and are looking for other activities to "work around" the restrictions, or maybe they're work colleagues who are both married/in relationships, but they go away on some sort of business trip together and figure that as long as it's not "full sex" then it's not really
cheating. Lots of flexibility with this one.
The Pool Party (light/coercion/short-term smut-heavy)
The idea of this one is that a guy has a few friends around to their house for a party by their secluded pool. There's only about 4 or 5 of them, so things start to get a little intimate. However, the guy's younger sister is left in the house on her own - her brother's supposed to be watching out for her while their parents are out but he figures she's old enough to look after herself. She gets bored of being indoors on her own and comes out asking if she can join the party. The brother's not so welcoming, but the other guys insist that she should be given a chance to join in, so long as she can show she's willing to get into the "spirit" of things. I'd ask whoever takes this idea to play mainly the sister, but also to a lesser extent a few other girls at the party, and I'd control all the guys.
