I'm going to start off this request with a warning, because that way I don't waste anyone's time, or my own. I am highly
selective about my One-on-One RP partners. We've all had that sinking feeling come when we get into a game we're really interested in, have spent a lot of time thinking about and working out the details of, only to watch it all come crashing down because our partner just isn't right for us. I hate that feeling. So, I'm going to be vetting any interested parties strenuously, according to past posts. I'll be judging based on post quality, quantity, style, O/Os and the general sense of the player based on what I see and whether I feel we would be a good match. So, if you read my request and feel you can create a good story with me, and our O/Os seem similarly matched, send me a PM and I'll check you out. If I decide not to play with you, please don't feel insulted. There are any number of reasons why I might say no, and only one person is going to get a yes, so it doesn't really say anything negative about you if I don't think we're compatible.
My expectations from my partner are pretty simple. I want a good, quality post of at least two paragraphs that gives me plenty to work with, is descriptive, but not pointlessly so, and has a minimum of spelling and grammar mistakes. Seeing a lot of mistakes in a post ruins my immersion, and thus my desire to RP with you. Getting a ten paragraph post full of inner dialogue and utterly inconsequential filler with either nothing, or a very small amount, for me to play off of...will make me end our game. Likewise, getting a post of only a few sentences with little to no description or character development...will make me end our game. I understand writer's block, and I'm available to talk with my partners if they're experiencing it, and need some inspiration, or even just some time to work through whatever is causing it. I'd rather wait a week for a really good post, than get half-assed, weak ones every day. My personal O/Os are linked in my signature, I encourage you to peruse them before PMing me.
Okay, on with the show.
She's the thorn in his side. A savvy, intelligent girl with massive amounts of untapped potential, who seems to do everything in her power to make everyone else's lives difficult. She cuts classes, starts fights, vandalizes school property, rebels against any and all rules, and in general just has a 'Fuck you' attitude about everything.
He is a long-suffering high school teacher/administrator. He's glimpsed past her hard-as-nails exterior, witnessed the brilliant mind behind the bad behavior, and the gentle heart beyond the seemingly impenetrable walls. He keeps trying to break through the barriers and get her to stop fighting against her own potential, but every time she throws it in his face. He just wants to see her do well in life, to find peace with herself and the world, so that she can stop making her own life more difficult.
I added a sort of flash fiction story down on the third post in this thread, to sort of give you a better idea of my character and the setting, as well as how the story might possibly begin to play out between the two main characters.
It was recently brought to my attention that I was unintentionally restricting the options of my roleplay partners. I am perfectly happy playing this game with males, females and transgenders! I prefer the character my partner plays to be a heterosexual male, but the gender or sexuality of my partner is not at all important to me!
I will be playing an eighteen year old high school Junior, who has been left behind once before due to cutting too many classes and being expelled from school. I already have my character in mind. My idea here is that the relationship between the two starts off adversarial, where he's trying to do his best to keep his temper while she does everything in her power to drive him up the wall. The relationship will change gradually, and I mean it might be a month or more of RP before anything
of a sexual nature happens between them. I want this to be a very story-driven game, where we work together to really flesh these characters out, and grow their relationship into something that feels natural. There will definitely be room for us both to play multiple characters, all of them background characters, as the story revolves around our mains.
I want to spend a good bit of time proir to play, and during the game, plotting with my partner, finding new ways to keep this story fresh and interesting. And, yes, this is meant to be a long-term game.
I want to work with my partner to create the characters, their backstories, personalities and everything in between. I see this almost as more of a co-written story than a traditional RP. And yes, I am only willing to do this in a thread. No email, IM, or PM game requests, please.
So, if you're interested, drop me a PM letting me know, and I'll check you out to see if I feel we can do this together.
If you have any questions about this, just leave a post here and I'll be happy to answer them!
