Lyndsey's idea thread.


Current status [29 April 2017]:Added new plot, looking to pick up a new thread or two.


Please do not post in this thread. Send me a PM instead.

Hello and welcome to my humble request thread, where you'll find various ideas and thoughts that I've managed to put in writing before they escape my consciousness. Feel free to stay awhile and browse, and should you find anything that piques your interest, my inbox is always open.



Who is Lyndsey?

Hi there mystery reader! I'm in my twenties, and have been writing/roleplaying since my teens. I first got into it playing World of Warcraft (and various other similar games) and have since moved on to writing here. Outside of writing I am a pretty avid gamer, and home cook as well. I'm generally a pretty easy-going person and happy to communicate with my partners outside of writing, and have skype available on request to that end .

Below, you'll find a few short blurbs describing what I am like as a partner.


Characters I play: I am transgender myself, and thus primarily play pre-operative male-to-female transgender characters. On rare occasiona consider female roles, provided the plot is of particular interest to me. I usually prefer to play opposite male characters, but will consider others should the plot be of sufficient interest. In addition, I try to make my characters real and believable. They have hopes, dreams, dislikes and desires. More often than not, they'll be strong in their own ways too. Long story short, don't expect a porcelain doll that will bend to your every whim.

Writing and Grammar: I consider myself an average writer, and seek partners at/above my level, and while mistakes are bound to happen, I find that I am unable to work with a partner who comes up with posts riddled with spelling and grammatical errors. Not a slight on anyone who does not have English as their native tongue, but it's just a bit jarring to me I'm afraid. Additionally, I only write from the third person perspective.

Setting and sexual preferences: I prefer stories grounded in reality, set in modern times, though there are certain exceptions to this. Other settings that I have enjoyed include 1950s-60s Americe (Possibly as part of a time travel tale) as well as the occasional post-apocalyptic romp. Like many others, I tend use images of real people for the appearances of my characters. I also will not play across any anime/cartoon characters or involve myself in any stories set in those sorts of worlds.

In terms of sexuality my characters will be 'bottom' for want of a better word, and generally attracted to men. For a more detailed insight into what pushes my buttons, feel free to check out my O/o's via the link in my signature or the section above.


Posting rate and length: Barring certain exceptions, I am able to post at least once every three days, though I am well capable of multiple responses on the same day . Real life might get in the way of writing sometimes and I'll be sure to inform my partners if that is that case, and expect the same in return. On my partner's end, I usually expect a post or two a week, though of course, it'll be awesome if you are able to post with greater frequency and I'll usually be able to match your rate.

Plot vs smut: I've noticed that a large chunk of content involving transgender characters in roleplay are generally centered around smut. In terms of that, I'd like to break the mold. The plot definitely comes first for me, and while I don't see much point in trying to come up with a ratio of plot to smut I'd expect in my threads, I'd definitely like heavy emphasis on the former. Don't get me wrong, my characters enjoy a good romp in the sheets like anyone else, but if that's all your looking for, then I'm probably not your gal.

Last but most definitely not least.... Most importantly of all, have fun! I'm sure all of us do this for fun, and I don't want anyone to feel obligated to write with me. If you feel for any reason our pairing or plot is not working out, just let me know, no hard feelings. I'll be sure to do the same. That said, I can only write with so many people, and I choose my partners based on how well I think we'd write together. Should I turn down a proposal, it's only because I feel we aren't all that compatible, so please don't feel too hard done by! There is a vast ocean of partners out there, and I'm sure you'll find one that suits you soon better than I soon enough.



What about you?

Now that you know a little about me, in this section you'll find the qualities that I hope to see in any potential partners.

Gender: I'll happily write with anyone, regardless of gender, so long as I feel that we'll be a good fit for each other in terms of writing together. That said, I prefer males as sexual partners for my characters, but may occasionally deviate from this course. Sexuality, like gender can be and often is fluid after all.

Creativity and multiple characters: I seek a partner capable of bringing their own spin to the plot, throw the occasional curveball and share the creative load as the story progresses, and impose the same expectations on myself.

Additionally, we meet many people in a normal day of our lives, even if the majority of those are just fleeting encounters. Similarly, the world out characters inhabit should be a living one. Thus, I seek a partner who like myself, is willing to play multiple characters, as and when required.


GMs: While not too long ago I would have been hesitant to write with a GM, since I've had an encounter or two with a couple of overbearing ones in the past. However, some of the most positive writing experiences on this site have been with such individuals, and depending on the plot, I would be more than willing to collaborate with anyone who prefers to take a bigger stake when it comes to the direction of the plot.

Communication: Communication is key for me, and I prefer to run any major plot twists or developments by my partner before actually pushing ahead. I expect the same from any potential partners, and would also like to be informed should they have to drop the story for any reason. I wouldn't mind all that much, except when a partner disappears without a trace. I'm also more than happy to communicate OOC be it for world-building or just general chatter, and as previously mentioned have skype available on request.

Possible group scenarios: Some of the ideas in my thread would possibly lend themselves well to a  group setting, and I'd be happy to discuss such a setup should there be sufficient interest.



Tales being weaved.

Here you'll find all threads that I currently have active. Feel free to browse, if only to get a better idea of the kind of partner I would be. Or better yet, add to this list.

The ideas.

In this section you'll find my ideas, stories that I am currently craving. Some of these already have a character attached to them that I'd like to play, while others are more open-ended. I am of course, open to discussions and world-building with any potential partners and can/will alter these ideas and/or characters to make them a better fit.

Additionally, if none of the ideas below tickle your fancy and you have one of your own, feel free to share! I'm always open to exciting new stories.




Taken
A Winter's tale.

   Inspiration: Various spy/action movies.

   Themes: Modern, Realistic, Action, Espionage.

   Seeking: Single partner, GM, Possible group.

   The plot: MC is part of a covert government organization that carries out tasks deemed too controversial to taken on by any of the more familiar
   intelligence fronts. Think assassinations, corporate espionage, target protection, and everything/anything in between. The plot would revolve around these missions, and also
   how the characters involved balance it with maintaining a so called 'normal' life. Ideally, I would like to write with a Gm for this plot, one who would enjoy creating a living,
   breathing world around my character. That is not to say I expect such a partner to carry the creative burden, of course. I am looking at a collaborative effort and have plenty
   of ideas in mind already for this particular plot.

   Alternatively, this idea can just as easily be adapted for a single writing partner, or a group should there be sufficient interest. If this is the option you are interested in
   pursuing do tell me more about the kind of character you would be interested in playing across mine.


                                       
Possible character
Name: Ellen Blake Winter

Age: 28

Gender: MtF pre-op transsexual

Place of birth: Las Vegas, Nevada.

Height/weight: 5'9, 127 lbs

Physical traits: Fairly average in stature , Ellen inherited her blonde tresses and green doe eyes from her mother. She might not look it, but she's light on her feet and agile, making up for her lack of physical power. She prefers to employ subterfuge and deception, and only takes a physical confrontation head-on as a last resort. Her body bears the scars of some of the missions she has taken on, notably a gunshot wound in her left shoulder and marks left by shrapnel on her thigh.

Personality: Ellen is a chameleon, she's able to effortlessly hide her emotions and put on a front, so much so that all but her inner circle know the real woman that lies beneath the facade. By default, she's quiet and unassuming, rarely seeking out conversation or interaction, even with her colleagues, but when she does speak, it isn't uncommon for most to realize that she possesses a quick mind, as well as a dry sense of humor and the sharp tongue to match it.

Background: An only child, Ellen was born Robin Winter, and she got dealt a rough hand in life when she lost her mother to illness at the age of five, a tragedy that devastated the young family, but eventually also served to strengthen the bond between Ellen and her father. It was quite evident early on that Ellen wasn't like the other boys her age in some ways, always softer, quieter, more sensitive than the others, even if she didn't mind playing with them and enjoying some of the things they did.

Being a little different didn't really become an issue until Ellen started growing her teens, where anyone who didn't conform to the status quo of high school ended up a target. Ellen took her fair share of bullying and sometimes even beatings, but she never backed away from a fight, always scrapping to stand up for herself, even if she ended up the worst for it most of the time. Recognizing that something had to be done if Ellen was to truly be happy,her father pulled her out of classes for a couple of years to allow her to transition before enrolling her into a different school.

Gifted a fresh start, Ellen managed to complete her education, graduating just when the war on terrorism was at its peak. Wanting to make something of herself and do her part, Ellen signed up to join the military, despite the fierce objections of her father. An accomplished athlete in high school, first in the fields of archery then air rifles, the transition to real firearms was a natural one, and Ellen scored top marks for marksmanship as well as most other disciplines during her stint in basic training, before going onto train as a medic. However, contrary to her expectations, Ellen didn't see a minute of action in the field after passing out from training. Matter of fact, she was never deployed overseas.

Marginalized because of her gender, Ellen pretty much served as a glorified secretary for a general at a base close to home. Disenchanted with life in the military, Ellen put in her resignation. That's when she was contacted by the department and offered a chance to join up. The chance to finally do some good in the world and make a difference was one Ellen couldn't pass up, and she eventually agreed after a few nights of soul-searching. Months of increasingly difficult training followed, and Ellen came close to calling it quits on several occasions, though her grit and determination saw her her through at the end of the day. She has since the covert organization the plot revolves around, working from the shadows whenever called upon, while hiding in plain sight in her more mundane day job as a casino hostess.





The lonely road. Currently Craving!

   Inspiration: Police procedurals.

   Themes: Modern, Realistic, Action, Crime.

   Seeking: Single partner, GM, Possible group.

   The plot: (MC) She's a law enforcement officer (Police, FBI perhaps), intelligent, tough as nails, but pretty reserved and cold to those outside of her admittedly tiny inner circle.
   She's been described as difficult to work with, and has been flying solo since her last partner retired.

   I would greatly prefer a GM for this role, as the character I intend to play is already well-established. That said, I'm not one to allow my partner to do all the heavy lifting and I have more than a fair few number of ideas to bring to the table. I would also be selectively open to a more traditional type of partner, if they have a proposal that is compelling enough.

Because this character is a one that I'm already put great thought into and have already written extensively, I also have a world-building thread for the character that you can find in the link below. However, don't let this put you off. Nothing is set in stone and I am more than happy to make changes for the right partner.


Character


Name: Evangeline Rose
Age: 34
Place of birth: Jersey City, New Jersey
Gender: MtF pre-op transsexual

Physical description: Evangeline stands at 5'7", with shoulder length blonde hair and piercing blue eyes. While not physically imposing, she is agile and light on her feet. While not on the job, she can come across as rather plain, and can usually found in jeans, t-shirts, tanks and sneakers. On the job, she is able to pull off many looks, picking whichever is best to suit her needs.

Skills: Expert marksman, Social chameleon, Quick and agile, Keen observational skills, intuition and intellect. Skilled driver, and possesses knowledge of vehicles, gleaned from her time working with her father in his garage.

Personality: Cynical, cold and calculating, Evangeline has been dubbed the 'ice queen' at her old precinct. She is an extremely private person and rarely reveals her thoughts and feelings to anyone. She has trust issues and is only truly open with a small handful that she has let into her inner circle, though those that manage to make it that far will find a warm and kind-hearted individual. Usually quiet and reserved, she is very observant and quick-witted, and relies on her intelligence rather than physical prowess in a confrontation. She is an excellent liar, able to blend in effortlessly in a variety of social scenarios.

Character background:

Born Evan Rose, the only child to an average suburban family in New Jersey, Evan's early childhood was a happy one. Everything would change one fateful night when Evan was five however, when his mother was apparently murdered in an apparent mugging gone wrong. Growing up without a feminine figure in his life, the child gradually became interested in the fairer sex to the point of obsession. Initially dismissing his child's behavior as just a phase, Evan's father did his best to raise him on his own, even though running the garage he owned took up most of his time. It would soon become apparent however, that what Evan had been going through was anything but a phase, and the man eventually relented and allowed his child to get the treatments and surgeries to became who he was both inside and out at the age of sixteen. Evan had become Evangeline.

A bright and intelligent child, Evangeline easily breezed through high school, graduating close to the top of the class. Everyone expected her to go on to study to become a doctor, or a lawyer like her mother. However, never one to conform to other's expectations, Evangeline decided instead to move across the Hudson and join the NYPD, determined to make a difference and not allow another child to suffer growing up without a parent, like she did. Discriminated against because of her unique past, Evangeline had to work doubly hard compared to her peers to prove herself, scoring top marks in the police academy while becoming one of the best shots the NYPD has ever seen, before racking up an impressive string of arrests to make the rank of detective at the age of twenty-four.



World building thread





Homecoming.

   Inspiration: Various.

   Themes: Modern, Slice of life, Action.

   Seeking: Single partner, GM.

   The plot: (MC) has been part of a government organization for the past few years, either law enforcement, or something less conventional. This plot kicks
   off with her getting jaded or disillusioned with the lifestyle she had been leading, and returning home to where she grew up, the American Midwest. It is a setting that I am
   interested in exploring, especially with its beautiful landscapes and unique culture.

                                                                                     This plot's a little more open ended than the others in this thread, and some discussion would definitely be in order to settle on a general direction before kicking things off. There are certainly many ways things could go, from it being a slice of life tale to something more action oriented, where MC's past follows her back home. It's all open and up for discussion, so feel free to drop a message in my inbox if building this story from the ground up is something that appeals.



 
Bloody sins.

   Inspiration: John Wick, Hitman.

   Themes: Modern, Realistic, Action, Crime.

   Seeking: Single partner, GM, Possible group.

   The plot: (MC) Is a killer for hire, with one catch - she only takes on jobs where the targets are deemed 'dirty'. Crime lords, drug pushes, murderers,
   you name it. As one might imagine, this has garnered her numerous enemies over the years, and the net is growing increasingly tight with each passing day. How long can
   she last before something gives? As far as the setting goes, I'm thinking of basing it in a large American city, such as New York, which should offer a playground rich and
   diverse enough to accommodate many different ideas and plot threads. Of course, I wouldn't discount the possibility of a jaunt to more exotic locales around the world for a job
   or two as well.

   As with most of the plots in my thread, I am looking for either a GM, or a single partner to write this out with. Should you be more interested in filling the latter position, you
  should be able to share the creative load, as well as write for side characters as and when the plot requires, and I'll be doing the same. Expect a detailed character profile on
                                                            my part, should discussions go well and we proceed with this plot.





Post-apocalyptic scenario.

   Inspiration: The Division, The Last of us, Various others.

   Themes: Modern, Post-apocalyptic, survival, action.

   Seeking: Single partner, GM, Possible group.

   The plot: If you've watched or played any of the countless zombie or similar movies/games recently, you probably have a good idea what this one is all
   about. That said, these types of stories are a dim a dozen in the various forms of media available to us today, and thus it would take rather a rather compelling setting,
   characters or twist, preferably all three for me to consider this plot. For instance, a non-undead apocalyptic event, such as the one in the recent video game 'The Division'
   might be an interesting angle to consider. I'm open to discussing and working on concepts with a partner on something revolving around this type of scenario, just be warned
   that I'm going to be fairly selective about moving forward onto something more concrete.




Smash and Grab.

   Inspiration: White collar.

   Themes: Modern, Realistic, Crime.

   Seeking: Single partner, GM, Possible group.

   The plot: (MC) is a thief, and a pretty good one at that. Over the years she's managed to build a pretty decent life for herself off the back of her 'job',
   breaking into the homes of the wealthy and relieving them of their valuables. Over time, she's achieved enough infamy to come to the attention of corporations that seek to
   hire her for espionage. It is on one of these jobs, breaking into the home of a prominent politician to retrieve some files on behalf of a mysterious client that she comes across
   evidence of a crime that is too heinous even for her to ignore.

   Going against her instincts, she risks the ire of both her client and the politician to turn this information over to the authorities. Unfortunately, no good deed  goes unpunished
   as the tables are turned on her and she ends up getting caught for the first time, while the politician walks free. Now in danger from both the client she spurned and the
   politician, she's offered a unique opportunity: share her skills and experience by working with the authorities to help them crack cases in return for protection and a chance at
   eventually taking down the politician.

   Looking for either a GM or in the case of a single partner, someone to play the police handler to (MC), the one who will be working with her to crack the various cases. As with
   the other plots in this thread, any potential partners should be comfortable sharing the creative load and playing side characters as and when needed.

New girl in school (Ts x M/Multiple characters)

I've never tried to role play with a transgender character but in terms of writing it I'm curious.
I'd be open to chatting, working out characters and a story.
