If you would like to play in any of these stories, please say so in a PM and do not post in this thread. I like roleplays that focus on character development, I'm not (necessarily) looking for literate partners, but anything below ten lines is a turnoff. More details on these stories will come by request via PM and I'm more than happy to brainstorm with you on the plot if you find it lacking. Be sure to read my Ons and Offs page
before deciding to start a roleplay with me. If we're not compatible, I might abandon the story, but I will always let you know if that happens and I appreciate it if my partners do the same, even more so if they tell me why so I can improve as a roleplayer. Feedback is welcome, but not mandatory. I also like to reply as fast as possible, but I do not demand the same from others. For posting frequency and word limits please ask me through PM, I will answer any question regarding other matters as well.
When the bells of judgment ring, we all have to answer to one particular entity before departing to another designated place. For [insert witty name here] the rigorous process of dying never goes by the book, yet things could be so much more simple. If only she would understand.
Death has been stalking her over the years, waiting for her to grow up into the beautiful young woman he knew she would eventually become. She had to reach the perfect age, not a bud anymore, yet not in full bloom as well, when he would come to reap what he had sown. He offers her three days of life for every task she achieves in pleasuring him, whether it’s about an entertaining game of chess or acts of a more sensual nature. He begins to enjoy his games with her, almost reaching addiction.
Sometimes he takes her with him on his missions, where she learns that not only does he get to choose the nature of one’s death, but also makes it happen. Important historical figures or plain workers, from the past, present in future: she gets to know each of his victims, their motivations and desires, their way of life until he comes to end everything. At least he has some sense of morality, whether it is self induced or forced by higher forces. Hardened criminals die in outrageous fashions, while children simply fall asleep and wake up on the other side. She is forced to watch every event unfold in front of her, without having the power to prevent anything from happening. Until one day, when he asks her to choose their next bedtime story.Tags:

In her village it's a well known fact that wolves roam the forest and that no one should travel alone at night. Hearing their howl every night makes her dream of what would it feel like to live as free as they are, until one night when she ventures to seek their lair. What she encounters in the dark forest is beyond the mere concept of a werewolf.
He shares his solitude within the castle walls with a few loyal servants and his pet wolf. The villagers know him as an eccentric aristocrat who never comes down from his mountain to interact with them. For all they care, he might be old and crippled or already dead. None had seen his face for over a decade, nor heard much about him except for what his servants have to say each time they visit the village and they don't do much talking. In exchange for her life, he offers her the only other alternative: becoming one of his servants, although he has no need for a maid. She had seen his face, therefore she must choose. What other secrets does a halfbreed like him fight to keep?Tags:

Based on the Metamorphoses novel by Apuleius, the roleplay will focus mostly on the shared love between Psyche and Eros with a few interesting twists. As the goddess Venus finds offense in Psyche’s beauty compared to her own, she sends her most beloved son Eros to bring punishment upon the mortal girl. The young god falls for Psyche instead and decides to trick his mother and fake Psyche’s punishment into a very well made stage play. Eros turns himself into the ancient dragon-like creature to which Psyche is sent by her family as sacrifice to appease Venus’ wrath after consulting Apollo’s oracle. Psyche faints at the sight of this creature and is then carried by Zephyr
into Eros’ celestial dwelling. Psyche is forbidden from seeing her lover’s features and becomes his wife for a blessed period of time until Venus hears news of their union. Filled with jealousy and hatred, the goddess of love comes up with a most wicked plan of separating the lovers in order to regain both her shattered ego and her son’s complete devotion. Tags:

I’ve been craving for a mermaid story since joining E and this will probably start off as a one-shot before actually turning it into a full-pledged roleplay. I am mostly looking for the classical mermaid-pirate pairing with a twist: she will probably be the most dangerous between the two of them. I’ll be playing Lorelei (in honor of the homonymous song on the same album) There will be magic involved of course, one which allows your character to breathe underwater (eventually) and mine to walk on land (at times).Tags:

A new depiction of the classical Devil’s Bride theme, this will focus on a human-demon pairing with a bit of the Persephone and Hades myth plugged into it. He’s ruling over the Underworld, bound by this cursed duty to the cold and the darkness. Seeking for a link to life and warmth, he decides to wed a mortal. Whether she’ll adapt to her new home or the land of the non-living drives her mad, it remains to be seen. His worst fear comes in the shape of his brothers and sisters – the other six Angels of Death. Tags:

Herald of the Sacred Fenrir
Picture not related, but depicts the kind of mood I'm looking for
Somewhat of a lighthearted comedy-based roleplay, it tells the story of a wicked shrine priestess in the service of Fenrir (an actual Norse God in this context) and his messenger, the sacred white wolf which acts as the main link between Fenrir and his followers. The priestess was able to see him since childhood and serves as an oracle for all those in need of advice or help from the white wolf. They developed a deep friendship and as the years passed by, their relationship changes. Not only does she keep demanding constant help from him as usual, but the nature of her requests slowly changes to a more personal one as well. Not that he’s complaining. Tags
