Never mind the random capitalizations in that description--sometimes a gal just has to capitalize. It gives the affair that piquant, old-fashioned feel, doesn't it?
Here's the situation. It's a definite rape-involving non-con situation, with slight SM overtones and rough and controlling situations approaching physical harm to the woman in the relationship. That said, let's move on to the plot.
People seem to be daunted by real history, and who can blame you? So let's not do that. Let's do a random Southern prince, in an empire that might be, really, any empire: decadent, warlike, obsessed with conquest, date palms, fig trees, wine, harems, and silk garments. Some troops of elephant riders, that sort of thing.
So his warlike and domineering father, who hates the layabout, rather limply intellectual prince (who, despite his layabout intellectual manner, isn't really a bad fighter... just very lazy and devoted to pleasure), sends him more or less to his death, in a war against a neighboring kingdom. The people there are, I am thinking, pale-skinned and vaguely European. You know the drill. Maybe their women are more liberated, maybe not. Anyway, he captures one of them, and the fun and the psychological and physical domination may begin. This is for fun, so, while there will be plot (as much or as little as you like, my future partner), I don't require you go into a great deal of political or warlike stuff (I do want a little). I also want some light philosophical argumentation. It's hot.
Now, here is what I would like in whoever plays the female:
I want her to be intellectually skilled, strong enough to resist, and smart enough to know when not to resist. My character is entirely misogynistic and not about to give her an inch; the more she struggles, in essence, the harsher he'll be. I may or may not develop him into less of an ass. I really don't know. I do not want a Mary Sue or someone who thinks she can convert my character to 'true love' with kindness and Christian virtue. Not going to happen. I really want to play a dominating jerk in a situation that's inescapable and fundamentally tragic... but fun, really. If you're the type.
I've got a bit of a foil character to him, which I play as an NPC--his common-born Lieutenant. Here's his description of the Prince, from an earlier RP I did:
"Kudret laughed. "Oh, you must understand--to the Prince life is a game. We are all little blocks he moves at his will. I am his toy soldier, and you are his--" Here he used their word for concubine. "Still, he is not always a bad boy. Only very, very young."
He sighed, moving his hands to clasp his elbows, his arms still crossed forbiddingly over his chest, and looked toward the sleeping Prince. Perhaps if he had grown up with less indulgence and less privilege... perhaps if he were less bastardly stubborn and arrogant--then he might have liked the boy. As it was he was a little fool drunk on power, determined to drag respectable men into his pettiness."
I've done a decent amount with this character before, so PM me for a lengthier description or some sample scenes. I'd also like to see a rough outline, at the least, of any potential female character in this situation.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you get to me. Bear in mind, I do have certain standards for those I RP with (See my O & Os), and they're pretty rigorous and strange, so don't be offended if I don't choose you.
