Kinks required: noneThis is probably the closest I will ever come to a fanfic RP, but the 'fandom' is so obscure that I'd be shocked/amazed/delighted if anyone recognized it.
The Young Man:
He was a street kid, living most of his life on the ragged edge of society, according to his own moral code. He wasn't your standard thug, though. He had a sense of honor, and a keen intelligence that he sated in the stacks of the public library, having dropped out of school before finishing high school. By the age of 18, he had a rap sheet as long as your arm, mostly consisting of petty theft and trespassing, and mostly resulting in minor sentences 'due to his youth'. Now that he is an adult, however, that mitigating factor is gone. The fact that the crime he committed resulted in a death (purely accidental as the night watchman had suffered a heart attack chasing after him) was another strike against him. He is given the 'opportunity' to take part in The Project
instead of facing trial and sentencing.The Scientist:
He had spent most of his life studying cultures long gone, but he was not some 'ivory tower' intellectual. No, he studied under the hot sun, in parched landscapes, or in places that hadn't ever felt the tramp of a Reebok. Some of his colleagues joked that he studied the past like a foreign language that he intended to become fluent in - to the point where even his thoughts were in that tongue. If they only knew. The Project:
The U.S. is ready to make its first attempt at colonizing space. The technology to reach the stars has been cobbled together from debris previously studied at Area 51. At a top secret installation, The Scientist
works in conjunction with a government group to select and train individuals with the right mindset to become pioneers - people able to quickly assess a situation and take action, without relying on some distant authority for guidance. People who, by the very nature of that mindset, were looked upon as 'trouble' by existing authorities. In the old days, they would have been 'mountain men' or explorers - but there was nowhere left on Earth to explore.
The Accident: The Young Man
has been part of The Project
for a little over a month. During that time, The Scientist
has taken on the role of his mentor. The two have worked together in the field, training both at study and survival. Both will be necessary for the initial assessment, and they have become a cohesive team. Word has come in that a likely planet has been found, and the transfer equipment has been set to send the initial exploration team. Both The Young Man
and The Scientist
are working late to prepare the supply packs when an explosion rocks the installation. Terrorists, system failure, natural disaster - who knows? But when the dust settles, the only remains that are found are that of the transport - hopelessly shattered.
The Plot: Both men find themselves on an alien world. Shaken, and with minor injuries, but in better condition than they should have been. Unfortunately, the return transport will not connect, nor do they have any way of communicating with Earth. There may or may not be intelligent life here. What is certain is that they are the only two humans for light-years, reliant on each other for survival - and companionship.While I will play either character, I am regrettably incompetent at writing a dominant character. I have nothing against either a 'man of the streets' giving his mentor a little 'education', or an older man taking liberties with his protege.It's That Time...
Minimum rating: Light
Kinks required: 'heat'This was half-inspired by a George Takei image, but Star Trek fan-hood or even knowledge of Star Trek is not required.
The two characters are part of a research expedition to a newly discovered planet. Through some calamity, they are separated from the base ship, and it will take several months for them to get picked back up. Logistically, this wouldn't be a problem: the shuttle has emergency supplies for just such an occurrence (including a hydroponics kit in case the preserved food runs out), and the planet itself is similar enough to 'home' that exposure and finding food aren't problems.
What is a problem is that one of the characters is coming up on a 'heat' cycle. The expedition was slated to be over and done with well before this happened, with a much-anticipated shore-leave planned for the cycle itself. Now, he finds that his only companion is another male crew-member, and while he could 'sate himself' in private, privacy is a hard thing to come by when your main shelter is a small shuttle craft. Not to mention, there's something about being with another person
.Possible twists: 1) Both crew members could have the same difficulty, whether or not they are the same race. Neither one has mentioned it to the other because that's 'just not talked about'.
2) Whether the situation is resolved willingly or not, the two will end up back on the same ship - for at least a time. Transfer paperwork to other vessels take a while to process, after all. How will they handle working together when they aren't the only sentient beings around?Stone Walls Do Not A Prison Make
Pairing: M/M (Senior Colonist/Jack 'Angel' Gabriel)
Kink(s): None required
Base Rating: BON (likely N/C, but if you have an idea to make it consensual, I'd be interested to hear it.)
The year is 2650. As Earth's population increased, violent crimes rose as well - overcrowding and scant resources are a recipe for discontent. Prison buildings have been replaced as the danger of inmates escaping has become too great a risk. Instead, those convicted of violent offenses are now shipped off to 'mining colonies'. On the surface, it looks like a good solution: The colonies bring in resources; and Earth gets to reduce not only the total population, but specifically the population of 'undesirables'.
Jack Gabriel, known as 'Angel' on the street, would beg to differ. On Earth, he was a street-tough, earning his nickname by a combination of his mild demeanor and a pair of blood-stained wings tattooed on his back. Rumor had it that he added a feather for every person he sent to the Docmobile, but it's hard to tell how much of that is true and how much is from drunken bragging. Regardless, the rumors were used as evidence against him when he was arrested after an attempted break-in at a distribution center. An elderly desk clerk suffered a heart attack, raising the crime to a 'banishing offense'. When the 'Guilty' verdict was read, he was swiftly sedated by the court and packed off on the next labor shuttle.
Now, he is in a place where his reputation could mean nothing at all - or make him a target.The senior colonist could be another inmate, one of the guards, or possibly someone who was there before the colonists (Exotics welcome)...The Data of the Dead
Base Rating: LightNote: Despite the title, there won't be any dead bodies to deal with. Unless some NPC gets gacked, which is entirely up to you.
What happens to data when there is no one left to access it? One character is about to find out. In a popular VR MMO, there are players that come and go, some leaving the game for good for whatever reasons take them away. After a certain period of inactivity (and more importantly, non-payment), the servers shuffle this data into its own backup area, where it sits and festers. Parts of it get overwritten, combining and recombining until it is completely unrecognizable as the characters it once was.
One day, something unexpected happens. A quest pops up on one user's travels called The Data of the Dead
. No information is available for this quest, even on the message forums and cheat sites. No other users have ever heard of this quest, and even replicating the actions that led to the first user getting it don't cause it to be issued to anyone else. The quest-giver's directions seem to point to one of the newer, more dangerous regions of the MMO, but the quest itself seems to be of the standard 'fetch' variety: retrieve that which was lost.
Shortly after embarking on the quest, the user is met and joined by a stranger. The stranger doesn't behave like an NPC, but he doesn't seem to have a username or a profile either...
In Your Wildest Dreams
The stored data has actually developed a strange sort of consciousness, and a desire to communicate with other sentient beings. Compounding the problem is that the servers will occasionally shuffle new data into storage - which will cause abrupt changes in the consciousness that would be worrisome in a flesh-and-blood user (lapses of memory, personality shifts, etc.) The story could involve finding a way to extract the consciousness, either from the storage server or from the MMO completely.
Kink(s): mild mind-control (dream-walking)
Base Rating: Light
He had always remembered his dreams, from an early age. Some were more vivid than others, though, and he made a point of writing those down. Those were the ones most likely to 'come true' in some small way. It was a surprise, however, when some of those dreams started to link up. At first, it was scenery that he remembered from a previous dream. Then, it was a person. The other man was trying to get his attention, that much was obvious, but why? Ty found himself anticipating each new installment in what he now considered to be one extended dream, even more vivid than any he had dreamed before. This one could go a number of ways. Perhaps Ty is pulled into what he thinks is the dream-world. Perhaps he meets the other man in a similar place in the waking world.Lost - Sort Of...
Kink(s): None required.
Base Rating: LightI'm going to preface this by saying I never watched
Lost. Sue me. This is based a little bit on a manga I read part of a while back. It's sketchy, but that's hopefully part of the intrigue.
He wasn't sure how he got there. His clothes were sopping wet, but the backpack lying on the sand next to him was dry. Driftwood and other flotsam littered the beach, as though there had been some kind of storm recently, but long enough ago that it, too, had dried out. Beyond the sand, lush vegetation hid the interior from immediate view. In the opposite direction, the ocean stretched featureless as far as the eye could see. To either side, there was no sign of civilization - only a crumpled heap that looked like it might be cloth about 30 yards away.This one can be done either M/M or M/F.
Back to Wonderland M/M Taken
Base Rating: N/C
I have a pending M/F 'Wonderland' RP so I'm listing this one as M/M. If it falls through, I'll be putting up the M/F version as an option.
Alex is a street kid, maybe as old as 21. While running from a gang of toughs, he stumbles down an alley - and crashes through a strange door. When he recovers from the face-plant, he's in a strange new world.
I'd like this Wonderland to be a bit darker than Carroll's vision. The beings Alex meets are out for their own interests, and some may not take 'no' for an answer. If the animal characters are no more than 'tail-and-ears', then it will be classed as Human. If they are full anthro, it will be Exotic. Beyond that (hey, maybe the Jabberwock wants a go!) it would be in Extreme territory.
