Feb 22, 2012 Edit: Hi Guys, welcome to 2012... I kinda dropped off the face of the earth way back in October and I apologize to everyone who had expressed interest via this thread for that! RL happens, unfortunately, but now I'm back with a bada-boom (at least, that's the plan)!
So here's the REVIVAL interest check of the CoSB by Anne Rice aka A. N. Roquelaure! Oh, and if anyone is interested in helping MANAGE this thing, by all means, please feel free to drop a line here and jump in, and let's get this on a roll!
The subject line says it all! I'm seriously in need of some Claiming Of Sleeping Beauty-styled roleplay, set in the land (or similarly-styled kingdom/queendom/princedom) of Anne Rice's/A. N. Roquelaure's Claiming of Sleeping Beauty Trilogy
So here's the list of what would be needed to begin! Feel free to expand on the list.
(or two) -- king, queen, whatever. Can have a son or daughter too. Would be the strict overseer of the kingdom, as it were. Semi-sadistic? Definitely strict. Almost... unforgiving? Mmm!
A few nobles
-- to make sure the tribute princes and princesses are properly disciplined/trained. Strict, with an undertone of "caring".
A few tributes
-- princes, princesses from faraway lands brought to the kingdom to learn obedience, grace, and humility through the rigors set forth in the trilogy. Submissives, love the situation or hate it, passive-aggressive, eager, fighter... Up to you! :) (Then again, all these roles have plenty of variational opportunity...)Footmen, Grooms
to aid in carrying out punishments and disciplines upon said tribute princes and princesses, put them through their paces, redden their bottoms, etc. etc. Grooms
to care for them and make them look presentable... bathe them, do their hair, listen to their woes, care for their welts and bruises, etc. etc.
Peasants? Not sure if we'd need these to start, as all the tributes begin their training in the castle/palace and are only sent to The Village if they are REALLY, REALLY bad.
I'm all for starting out small, cross-gender roleplay if that's your thing, and a person playing more than one character (at least to start?).
So, who's with me?! I'd be playing a tribute princess
