Eye-catching title go! (M/M)
« on: November 22, 2014, 10:17:19 AM »
Lookin' for a couple roleplays, yo.

But wait! Before we leap into the creative bits, lemme just put this right here: my O/Os. You should check that out, so you know you're approaching someone you wanna approach. I mean, you never know who's truly at the other keyboard until you've looked at their O/Os. Also, I haven't roleplayed on here in a while and by now a good chunk of my post history has been plagued by OOC, so if you're the kinda person who likes gawkin' at this sort of thing, here are a few easily accessible samples, all from 2016 (both links in this paragraph point to the same thread).

Alright, now that we have that out of the way, this whole thread is just a smorgasbord of creative entities to tickle the muse, so take a gander and if something tickles your fancy, or if you wanna offer up something not listed here, PM me!

For the Love of Fandom

Not looking for canon characters, just the universe.

The Walking Dead
Virtually any plot or pairing that could work within this universe would probably work fine for me. Some ideas:
  • Younger x older (family friend/neighbor looking after Younger in parents' absence/after their death? Passing strangers that decide to trust one another?)
  • Two survivors in a Negan-like community working to overthrow oppressive ruler
  • Moralistic survivor x "immoral" survivor
  • Brawn x Brains
  • Survivor x man who killed his family/significant other

The Hunger Games
Primarily referring to the idea that tributes are picked and forced to fight to the death in a harsh terrain for the entertainment of many. Whether we go with The Hunger Games world, original or altered, or something more original doesn't matter so much.


Pesky Head People

Some characters I wouldn't mind sticking in a roleplay. Each one has a short blurb and a few ideas for what a story with them could consist of.


Dominic Warren
A six-foot-one cynic who does what he wants, Dom tries to place as much distance between himself and monotony as he can, always searching for his next thrill and sometimes dipping his toes into the criminal world to get it. Now approaching or hitting thirty, he hasn't slowed down, but sometimes life's choices have a way of catching up.



Mafia boss/criminal mastermind x henchman, gangster/robber x cop, partners in crime, old flames reunited (in a not so pleasant way? with a vengeance?), childhood friends, apocalypse survivors, underground fight ring, gambler who owes a debt


Brayden Morris
Well-meaning but often failing, protective but afraid it's not enough, loyal to the wrong people and not the sharpest tool in the shed, Brayden wants to be a better person than what he thinks he can be.



Ex-bully x ex-victim, student x student (college or high school), gangster x gangster, gangster x upstanding citizen, volunteer x volunteer through probation, abusive boyfriend x boyfriend*

Abuse obviously isn't something that should be glorified, and I don't want it to be treated as such. I also don't want really want it to be the primary focus of the story.


Casey Daniels
Casey is a freckled-faced young man often spotted around town in raggedy or paint-stained clothes with a poor man's dialect to boot. He loves work, and when he's not busy at his official job, he's freelancing as a handyman and gardener for anyone looking for affordable, trustworthy service. Oh yeah, and family's the most important thing to him in the world.

Handyman/gardener x client, single dad x other guy, abusive boyfriend x boyfriend*, younger x older, addict/alcoholic x clean guy, poor man x wealthy man


Noah Bennett
A man from rough beginnings who worked hard to succeed. [New character, so he's a bit rough right now.]

Age: 28-31
Personality: Ambitious, observant, assertive, impatient, judgmental



Businessmen, law enforcement, old/ex-friends with different outcomes in life

Just some face claims that I might use. If one jumps out at you in particular, just say the word!

Under Lock and Key

Plots and characters that don't fit my current cravings are relocated here so that I don't have to rewrite them if the muse arises again. I'm not opposed to starting stories with them, they're just not the ones I'm focused on.

When We Meet Again
Back then, Character A and Dom were two peas in a pod, but they were as different as day and night. Character A was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and to a lineage that created many of the town's important figures, his own father having held the position of mayor for several years. With great history came great responsibility: he was expected to maintain the family's reputation.

Dom, on the other hand, was a troublemaker who thirsted for fun and left no stone unturned. While not a tragic upbringing, his family wasn't as well off and were regarded poorly in the community.

The two, despite maybe some odds, were close growing up until something tore them apart in high school. They went their separate ways, seeming to be on track with what life destined for them: Character A followed in his family's footsteps, taking up an important position in the town (mayor, sheriff, church leader, etc.), and Dom served a few years in prison.

It has been several years since they have last seen each other. Dom has recently returned to town, looking to fix a lot of his past mistakes. Will they be able to reconnect? And what of Character A? Is he still trying to uphold the family name, and reputation?

Dom can be 28-31 years old.

Strangers
Character A and B met as kids. They grew up on the same street, maybe next door to one another, and so, naturally, they became friends. In middle school, they drifted. Maybe something happened between them, but Character A's rise in popularity was no doubt a contributing factor. He started hanging out with the cool kids, and Character B, a nerd, a loser, was left behind.

They haven't talked much, if at all, since. Any attempts at conversation would have ended in more arguments. But a few years have passed. They're seniors now, or maybe they both, unknowingly, enrolled in the same college. Fate has put them in a situation in which they have to interact. Will they reconcile their differences and become friends again?

Looking for It
It's summer, and for his vacation, Character A is going to Holden, a cape town on the east coast that is very friendly for a non-heterosexual such as himself. Only, this isn't so much of an official vacation. He's running--from a bad bump in a relationship, or a life that has left him utterly miserable, something.

Character B is a resident of the town, wading through the tide of the tourist season and waiting for the day when Holden will slip back into hibernation, when it's more peaceful.

The two meet, and they find in each other something neither of them fully realized they were looking for.

Inspired by Michael Thomas Ford's novel of the same name.

Added a few plots, and characters I have a hankering to play.
