Play with Shinshi (M4F)
« on: July 22, 2014, 10:49:52 am »
If you're reading this, first let me say thanks :) I'm really looking forward to meeting people, writing and building up a repertoire of genres and themes.

A bit about me:

I'm a guy, I've been role-playing since my early teens, and it's depressing how long ago that was!  ;D

I have a really busy job and life outside the internet, but I'm looking to write a few times a week -- maybe more, maybe less depending on my IRL situation.

I'm back after a really long break from role-playing, I'm rusty and out-of-touch, so feel free to let me know if there is anything I should be doing that I'm not :)



Roleplaying with me:

I generally want one-on-one role-plays so I can keep on top of them. My days of being part of big groups and reading a novella of submissions a day is far behind me. I'm also going to be strict and try not to get into too many role-playing at any one time -- this is something I've done in the past and I know I can't sustain it.

When I roleplay, my main character will be male. I have no problem filling out NPCs with whatever the story requires, but I am a dude, I know dudes, it's just what I'm comfortable with.

When looking for a role-play I am typically looking for my main character to be interacting with a female main on the other side.

I am not a big fan of role-playing canon characters/events -- I've never been a big fan-ficcer. I prefer to write within established universes adjacent to the canon, or in a new universe that we flesh out together.

I have zero preferences at the moment for how we do the actual role-playing. PMs, threads, Discord, email, a Google Doc... Just let me know what you like. In the past I mainly did email, listservers, LiveJournal, messenger, forums, and even a wiki. I've been around the block.  :P



Unestablished settings:

Below is a list of settings that I would like to write within. Plots are collaborative, I just have a fascination with the environments they present.
  • Wuxia: I love the fantasy kung-fu worlds of movies like Hero, Crouching Tiger and House of Flying Daggers. I also like pan-Asian attempts like the Bioware RPG Jade Empire.
  • Historical Japan: Who doesn't love samurai, ninja, ronin and the tales of feudal Japan--maybe with a touch of fantasy for added fun. I have a bit of a thing for wartime Japan too but in a more realistic manner.
  • Cyberpunk: Anyone who's read William Gibson's Neuromancer or seen Blade Runner or Akira will know what I'm talking about. I particularly love Ghost in the Shell (in all its incarnations) and would love to match up this setting to a police/detective style plot.
  • 50s U.S. Urban Noir: Hats, trenchcoats, cigarettes and moody narrative. Yes please!
  • Military: Special forces, war, boot camp. There's a lot to work with.
  • Spies: I can go either realistic or license to kill with this. Double-crossing, dead drops, wet work and globe trotting. I have a particular love of the Mission: Impossible setting.
  • Sci-Fi: Particularly with regards to space travel in the vein of Star Trek, Star Wars, Firefly, Ringworld, etc.

I have more, but these are what come immediately to mind. PM if you are interested in pursuing any of these ideas.



Fandom settings:

Below is a list of established universes that I would like to write with non-canon characters.
  • Westworld
  • Star Trek
  • Star Wars
  • Marvel/DC/Invincible

Again, these are just the ones that come to mind. PM if you are interested in pursuing any of these ideas.

Updated after a 7 year absence 🙇

EDIT: I didn't realize this was in the one-on-one forum and that I was bumping it up. Mea culpa!
