For me the interest in Raven as a character is having my character being the one person she does let her guard down around, after getting to know them, starting to trust them. It would take a while, and would definitely be a slow build. But thats what I really want, to have my character be her support, and to play around with all those complex emotions. That to me sounds like fun. :)
When putting it like that, it actually does sound amazing. It's sort of my typical kind of character really, which makes me a tad sad I've never come across you before.
I do so many characters based on the whole sort o brick-wall on the outside, really quite squishy on the inside. If I should describe how I see Raven (Basing everything entirely on the cartoon and a few of her minor comic roles) it would probably be as someone who does her utmost to never get emotionally involved with anything, in order to make sure she isn't hurt in a way she can't handle. You know, physical pain is sort of whatever
, wounds close and hell, just put on a band-aid. I imagine her being rather insecure and intimidated when faced with emotional problems, like how she will always
dodge Beastboy (Boy-beast? I can't quite remember, but I believe he had a thing for her?) whenever he tried to get close, and never accept nor reject his affection.
But I guess I'm getting a little sidetracked - Just thought it was sort of interesting to think about. :) She's definitely one of those characters that happen to be straight up my alley that I've just never realyl thought about playing.
While I wouldn't say I can never find a partner for it, I have a hard time holding onto one for large-scale world exploration/adventure stories, whether I'm the adventurer (preferred), the world-builder (more difficult; I have trouble maintaining a coherent plot to follow) or a mixture of the two (also good!). And that's understandable to me - it takes a lot of energy to maintain RP on that scale, always going out and finding/creating new material and carrying a growing story along the way, so it's not as though I'm flabbergasted by the difficulty of finding it. Still sorta disappointing though. xD
Now this is kind of a dilemma of mine, just the other way around really.
And it's sort of the exact same issue but in reverse, where I have trouble finding someone who will go along with a story for long enough before it all just sort of decays and crumbles into a large puddle of senseless smut. xD
Once I was all about trying to do these RP's where the only thing I'd request from my partner was that they send me a character sheet, and then I'd take care of the rest, but I started shying away from it, before abandoning it completely because I always felt like people didn't appreciate the amount of work I put into it at all. Rather than explore and look around, or do anything even remotely interesting, they'd rather just wait for the first potential bedmate to come along and then do their utmost to get smutty as quickly as possible. :/ It sort of stings, y'know? When you have this whole world with heroes, villains and religions and what not planned out, and people just immediately stop caring because hey: Porn!
