Anything World War II in general is a little hard to find, really -- I'm not even interested in anything all that dark or extreme, and I've still always had a hard time finding anyone willing to play the part of a German officer.  (My only success in that line was on another site.)  But my guess is that it's the research.  :/

I've had a crazy craving for something extremely dark and set in WWII Nazi Germany for like... years. Unfortunately, it seems to scare people off either because the content tends to range in the more extreme categories, or because the male character would require someone who can play a sort of Jekyl and Hyde type. It also tends to require at least some small amount of research, which makes people prone to running away. >.<

What an interesting coincidence.  One of my little cravings (but lack of planning and story) was trying my hand at playing a German Officer in charge of Nazi experimentation......but that's really about all I have  >.>;

Most of my cravings tend to be extremely dark themed and most people don't seem to like planning out the darker, non-sexualized themes regarding the human mind and body in post apocalyptic/wartime situations  :<

I wanted to play Gargamel in a Smurfs roleplay once.

I can usually badger a handful of people into indulging my weird whims, but even they draw the line at Gargamel.

Oh! And Maito Gai from Naruto. I guess his personality is a little off putting for romance. >.>

A gritty, action packed Pokémon story. It's basically Die hard meets Pokémon with a little Mission Impossible mixed in.

Coincidences abound. I had a craving at one point for a very dark contemporary fantasy set in WWII Germany. I wanted the beginning to start in a concentration camp. No one bit at the story.

Oh, by SITHIS it is so damn hard to find a Femdom RP! And even more so if you happen to want that Femdom RP to also be a celebrity RP. It's an extremely small niche that is frustrating as hell to get an RP in. XD

I feel that in my case, it would be easier to ask "What plot *can* you find a partner for?"  ;D

I mean, it took me a looong time to find someone interested in my Stepford Wives stories... and variants of the plot, like "Stepford college students"? I still can't find partners for them. My other mind control plots? Forget it. My dystopian stories? Almost no takers. The one story I have about a young woman forced to live in a strict, Victorian-esque community? It's been years since I first posted it... still, no takers.

Even my vanilla stories don't sell. Neither the story about a princess dating a commoner, or about a nun falling in love...

Hrmf!

Your dystopian storylines require brains and creativity. How dare you put such demands on writers like me! :p

How to put this ...

Anything with a character with nonbinary or variable sex and decent plot. Seems to either draw in people just looking for smut or just plain scare people off.  :-\

People to play in my strange, crazy, H-Game inspired RPs. Pretty Soldier Wars? One. Lightning Warrior Raidy? One-ish.

Also people willing to date a Super Villain with a mean-streak a mile long.

Anything that's a weird crossover.

Madoka Magica.

Just… just go to my search page. Pretty much everything there I have a hard time getting. >.<

Heh, at this point... I would say I crave a long romantic story about a superhero that drew his strength from his significant other,  and I'd bet my truck that I could not find an available partner for it.

Holidays + My "cheery mood" mang. ::)

I can't really say anything for your mind-control focused stories because I find mind-control to be inherently boring to rp for anything more than a few posts, as an over all theme I wouldn't be able to stick with it for long. That said... your Victorian-esque idea? I'd say part of your trouble finding someone is that you want to play the female. I know plenty of women (myself included) that would be happy to play a female character in that sort of story. I know your seeking thread says you'd be willing to consider playing the male, but no one wants to PM someone asking them to play something other than what they truly want to play, because it makes us feel as if the idea would be less appealing to you and thus you'd be less likely to stick with it.

Well, that's certainly a matter of preference. I love reading about characters being mind-controlled and I love RPing characters in that sort of situations. I wish I had more of that...

In a way it depends on how you define mind control. If you understand it as "a character turns into a living puppet and has their actions completely controlled", then yes, it is boring. If you treat as a sort of introspective story, when a character's thoughts are somehow influenced and changed... now that is interesting.

Oh, there are situations where I would really be happy with playing the men! Currently, I'm trying to find someone I could play with in a story when I'd get to play the mind-controller. Still, no success of yet...

But yeah, in that Victorian-esque story, I'd really like to play the woman. Although, if that story got combined with mind control... hey, I would be be happy RPing the man, too.

Pretty much all my prompts, haha. I'm joking. I've found a few partners, but they tend to either flake out or we just don't sync up well. I like to write a lot around my character changing gender or assuming the identity of the opposite gender, both which I think are tough sells. I get a lot of messages asking me to explain it in detail -- only to have the other party decide it's not for them. Having been a long time role-player and been on other forums, I wouldn't have figured I'd have such trouble on here getting someone that interested in it.

Oh well. I'll just keep trying to be as creative as possible. :)

Yeah, the challenge I've found there is the people into that primarily or exclusively want to be the one changed. Combine that with matching interests in other areas, it's hard to find someone to partner or change the changed character. I'd give it a try but my preferences are almost the exact opposite of yours otherwise ...

Female villains for one thing. I don't need a female to play as a rapist (still like it though), but someone who isn't a damsel either. Could even be an anti-heroine who is redeem later on in the plot.

I seem to overestimate the popularity of erotic graphic novels and the like, since nobody on here seems familiar enough with artists from World of Smudge or Superheroine Central to want to play out scenes from those stories or just using those characters.
