Hello! I'm glad you stopped by. Thank you for your interest, and hopefully I can tickle your fancy with what is to follow.
Tonight, I’m looking for a variation on my trademark idea, the knight and princess one.
I’d like the play to be set in a small kingdom in the rough northlands. Thus, I’m imagining a somewhat primitive, low-fantasy realm where nobility pretty much has to get their hands dirty, too, protecting the farmers, upholding the law and the likes.
For those of you that like to think in images and fandoms for inspiration, think Rohan in the LotR movies or the Viking culture in The 13th Warrior.
For random elements to certainly expect, think bear rugs, roaring fireplaces, nights in the barn or hayloft above the stables for starters.
The story would focus on the princess and her childhood friend who left the royal palace to become a knight when they were teens. Now, he’s returning in order to escort her on a tour through the kingdom to help her prepare for her role as a ruler, and their reunion serves to rekindle affections and yearnings that she had for a long time after her best friend left, and more.
I’m looking for a sweet, tender love story in this play, with the problems arising for the two of them being their slight(!) awkwardness as their relationship develops into more than just friends now that they’re adults, and the adventures they have to face on their journey.
They could or even should very likely end up as an official couple, with their social standing actually not being too far apart and her parents not intending to use her as political bargaining material, but just accepting her choice?
The basic framework for this is a vanilla love story. So, while that can go well into kinky practices, I will not play this as non-con, dub-con or something similar. That said, I’m open to have them develop amongst them some BDSM style elements in the bedroom once they get closer and share their fancies.
The knight is the nephew of the steward of a border province. He has been raised at court until his teen years, having made friends with the princess who was the only other child around that was of the same (approximate) age, then left for his uncle’s province when he became old enough to be trained as a knight. Since, he had been kept busy on quests along the border preventing him from returning for six years, placing him now in his early twenties. As the princess is sent on her first tour through the northern provinces by herself, he, by virtue of his originating there and his merits in the royal service as well as connection to the princess, who has nagged her parents about choosing him, is to accompany, protect and teach her.
The princess I’d like as a next-door-kind-of-girl, the friend type.
Appearance wise, I’d prefer her to be the petite type, with small bust and behind, long legs, not your typical, prominent hour-glass figure and prominent hips, but more (for lack of a better word) boyish look, but still cute.
I'd love for my partner to vary her hair style and maybe also length from time to time, including in the story how she keeps it (when they get lost, maybe there's some practicability in cutting it shorter, etc.).
She could be a half-elf, with the king having married an elf for love or to strengthen an alliance or smooth waves between both groups within the kingdom (or all of that).
Personality wise, I’m looking for her to be open-minded, sweet, could be a little naïve even. However, I want to stress that for this play, I’d want a character that, although a virgin, is not anxious or afraid of her sexuality too much. As a princess in that kingdom, she would certainly have seen her share of animal sexuality and thus be aware of the general issue and regard it as normal, as well as might have seen some shady encounters of maids, servants, soldiers and townspeople on solstice and harvest festivals and such, and grown curious about it.
Too, I’d want her to be rather committed in her crush on the knight, showing her affection and actively pursuing to get him to like her and get closer to him.
Last words: Please keep in mind that I am open to negotiate, supplement and develop many of these points to a wider or lesser degree. If you feel intrigued by the general idea, please do feel free to send me a PM with your thoughts and what works for you and what doesn’t.
