Bunnies and head people and a Haru, oh my! (M/M, mult. ideas)
« on: November 22, 2014, 10:17:19 AM »
The Quick n' Dirty
  • 2-paragraph minimum. My average is 500+ words. No, I am not a size queen. You can find samples and roleplays I am active in by visiting my O/Os, or stalk my post history. Whichever.
  • My posting frequency may be once every 1-2 weeks, though I will try to get to the roleplay as quickly as I can. I typically go with a first come, first serve policy, but I am involved in a group, which, when it comes down to it, will take higher priority. I'm willing to wait up to a couple months for a response, as long as I know the other player is still interested.
  • I'm more plotty than smutty.
  • A partner's sex/gender identity or planet of origin do not matter to me.
  • Threads or PMs for roleplaying. PMs for plot discussion and chit-chat, at least initially.
  • Character is the most important thing to me. As long as the characters are enjoyable, I'm likely to maintain interest.
  • I would say I am better at character than plot, though I do help with the latter. If you're primarily looking for collaboration and a partner who tries, great, but if you expect them to be the equivalent of an award-winning storyteller, you probably won't find what you are looking for here. Likewise, you'll have better luck elsewhere if you want a partner who does all the work.
  • More in my O/Os. Check it out.

Bunnies: A Day in the Life

Some modern musings. Anything about them can change; even if you want to take a sentence and run with it in a completely different direction, I'm always open to discussing things and seeing where it goes. All names used are placeholders--figured that might flow better than saying "character A/B".

Save the Ranch
Someone in Jack's family passed and left the ranch in his name. It's a little operation, been in the family for years, and it's sinking. Between that and the dilapidated home, keeping it is a hard sell, but with the help of a ranch hand, Paul, Jack digs his heels in for the hard ride. Can he turn it around?

Why Jack wants to keep it is open to interpretation, of course, but a couple possibilities: nostalgia for having been there a few times as a kid, a sense of familial obligation, stubbornness because he doesn't want anyone else to have it. Paul could have been working at the ranch for a while or could be a new hire by Jack.

I'm open to either role. Jack should be at least 25. Paul should be at least 22. No faces immediately come to mind for Jack.

Faces I could use for Paul

Love Behind Barn Doors
Paul has been working on the Pratchett farm for a long while--about a decade or so. He's watched Jack, their son, grow up and move away. It's been a few years, but he's returned. Things are different now, perhaps so minute to be easily missed until it springs on you like a snake in the grass. Maybe it was a certain look, the slightest of touch, or a few too many deep conversations. Whatever it was, feelings blossom when Paul knows he should know better. What would Mr. Pratchett think?

I'm tempted to shy away from the homophobic parent/employer angle, unless we decide it adds something more than the typical angst and fear that comes with it. The age difference and their statuses on the ranch could be enough to create hesitation and a need for secrecy. Heck, it could even be that the parent is protective of Jack, much like a father is to his daughter. Or Jack could be engaged--if this is chosen, I would be open to playing the fiance, male or female.

The size of the ranch can be discussed. Jack should be 20-24 and Paul should be at least 27.

Faces I could use for Jack
Faces I could use for Paul

Battle of the Bands
Our characters are in rival bands who are stuck on tour. Can they survive?

To make it more interesting, we could say they were in a band together until something happened. Maybe one was kicked out, or one decided to seek a better opportunity elsewhere. They could have been dating before the groupies became an issue. There could have been an argument or a drug problem. Many different possibilities.

NPCs will, of course, be unavoidable, and I would prefer to divide them up to balance the load. I would be okay with incorporating a secondary M/F pairing.

Faces I could use

The Price of Fame
Waiting in Neverland has gotten the break they have been waiting for. Now that they have a label and are recording their debut album, it's nowhere but up.

The story will revolve around the band, their rise to fame, and the struggles that come with it. Preferably, we divide up the NPCs to distribute the weight. Drama could involve a manager, and I would be open to a secondary M/F pairing. I'm also not opposed to changing this to a duo, like Twenty One Pilots, The White Stripes, or a modern, gay Simon & Garfunkel. If we go with less of a rock sound, my face claims might differ, but otherwise, I would use anyone I have spoiler'd in "Battle of the Bands".

Coming Home
Matt and John were high school sweethearts, separated by thousands of miles when John enlisted in the army. It was rough on both of them, but his service is over now and he's coming home. They try to pick up where they left off, but years of change hasn't made that so simple.

For John, he's trying to reintegrate into a society that he hasn't been a part of for a few years. Maybe he has PTSD, survivor's guilt, lost a limb. How has Matt changed? Friends, schooling, job, personality, all things to consider. Has he been faithful all these years?

We could begin with Matt and John seeing each other for the first time after John has returned home for good, or we could start before that to get a feel for their relationship up until now. Maybe a scene before John leaves for basic, and/or maybe write out a few letters, Skype calls, or leaves.

I'm open to either role. I don't have any special faces in mind for Matt's role.

Faces I could use for John

A Place to Call Home
Brandon has overcome obstacles to get to where he is today, and he has done it all by himself: college graduate, successful businessman still climbing the corporate ladder, a place of his own. On the streets, he meets Troy, a younger man who was kicked out for being gay. It's a story that tugs at the heartstrings. Brandon offers him a place to stay, but was it a wise decision?

Troy should be 18-21. I'm open to either role. I don't have any special face claims in mind for Troy.

Faces I could use for Brandon

Three's a Crowd
After a few years, wedded bliss isn't so blissful for the Turners. Maybe there have been a couple bumps in the road, or maybe things have been fine, but what once was a spark is now just...contentment. When Brian comes to stay with them for a while, temptation sets in and the home they started together begins to collapse.

I see the story being anything from jealousy and cheating to an attempt at polyamory, or a combination. This could become a bit smutty, but the story should always maintain a primary focus on the plot, with good pacing and an exploration of how the relationships between the three men develop and decay.

Brian could be a coworker; a friend, old or current, of one of the husbands; a young homeless man; or something else. I'm open to playing either the husbands or Brian.

Tom and Jerry met as kids and became the best of friends until middle school. Maybe something happened between them, but Tom's rise in popularity was no doubt a contributing factor. He started hanging out with the cool kids, and Jerry, 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 and they are forced to interact. Will they reconcile their differences and become friends again?

They could be seniors in high school, freshman in college, or in the in-between. A few possibilities for their situation: one is forced to live with the other's family for a period of time, they're working the same summer job, they wind up as roommates in college, they have to complete a project.

Faces I could use for Tom
Faces I could use for Jerry

Bunnies: Survival Instincts

Musings of the apocalyptic persuasion. Unless specified, assume that the cause of society's downfall is open for discussion. And like with the previous section, these ideas can be altered in any way, and I'm open to others. All names used are only placeholders.

Keep You Safe
An older man, Joel, pairs up with a younger one, Eli, to survive the harsh new world in which they have found themselves. Some more specific scenarios:
  • Eli is (supposedly) immune, and Joel has been tasked to take him to where a cure is being developed
  • Joel was a family friend who looks after Eli when his parents are unable to
  • They live in the same colony, which is destroyed, forcing them to go about it on their own
  • They are strangers who meet when one helps out the other in a bind
Among others. Really, I'm open to anything that fits the older-younger premise. No, the two don't have to be romantic. Eli should be 18-25, and Joel should be at least 27. I can play either role, though I don't have any special face claims in mind for Eli.

Some faces I could use for Joel

Oh Brother, Where are You?
Elijah and Dillon first met at the at-risk youth center run by Elijah's uncle, and from there they became like brothers. When society began to fall, they got separated in the chaos. Elijah has been looking for him ever since. Little did he suspect that Dillon would have sided with a group of bandits. Is Dillon running with the wrong crowd deliberately?

A current musing I have is that the two meet when Elijah is held captive. The nature of the community center is open for discussion, but a classic choice is a boxing gym, one that stresses books before gloves. I would like there to be at least a three year difference between Elijah and Dillon. The two are not required to become intimate.

Faces I could use for Elijah
Faces I could use for Dillon

Pesky Head People

Just some characters I wouldn't mind sticking in a roleplay. Each one has a brief personality and a few ideas that are unique to them.

Name: Dominic Warren
Age: 27-31
Personality: Extroverted, cynical, adaptable, selfish, self-assured, unapologetic
Pairings/Ideas: Mafia boss/kingpin x henchman/right-hand man, mafia boss' son x henchman, gangster/robber x cop, partners in crime (a Bennie & Clyde? A Michael x Franklin-esque pairing from GTA V?), old flames reunited (in a not so pleasant way? with a vengeance?), apocalypse survivors (immoral x moral, enemies forced to work together?), younger x older, underground fight ring, gambler who owes a debt, prisoners
A post-apocalyptic story.

Sunshine saw little choice: it was either join or die. The group wasn't kind. They bullied colonies and vagabonds alike for their supplies, and if he wanted to keep his head above water, he needed to go through the motions, because there was no way out. People tried to escape, and when they did, they were found and killed, or worse.

Arguably, Dominic, the one to join first, had little choice, too, but there was one crucial difference: he embraced the community and carved himself a niche towards the top of the chain. Not being able to leave was a bummer, but then again, why would he want to? Their colony was the strongest in the area. He had everything he could ever need.

The two form an unlikely alliance that changes their lives forever.

Sunshine might potentially be the leading protagonist of the two, a story about him as he tries to maneuver through his new society and maintain his humanity with the help or hindrance of Dom.

It could also be that Sunshine joined with the intention of assassinating the leader, only it's not as easy to get to him as he thought.

I foresee Sunshine being younger or around the same age as Dom.

This idea was originally conceived as a Walking Dead fandom, with the characters being a part of the Saviors. Any similar community would do: a group of extortionists living under a sort of dictatorship. It could be a zombie apocalypse or post-WWIII. Nothing like vampires or anything, though. The story should be more on the people and less on any entity that caused civilization to collapse.

We could start with the two going on an extortion run for the first time, or it could be that Dom arrives at Sunshine's previous colony, where Sunshine tries to join Dom's.
Day and Night
Back then, Ben and Dom were two peas in a pod, but they were as different as day and night. Ben 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: Ben 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 Ben? Is he still trying to uphold the family name, and reputation?
Under My Wing
Kyle was doing this to make ends meet. That was what he told himself when he turned to crime for cash. He had barely dipped his toes into the underworld when he met Dominic.

How, exactly, is up for discussion. Part of the same gang? Kyle picks out Dom as a target for a petty crime, who worms his way out by promising introduction to a gang or by proposing a partnership? Maybe Kyle is on the run and Dom helps him out and gives him a place to lay low for a few days?

I would like Kyle to be around the same age or younger.
Struggle/The Hunted
In this Dystopian society, criminals are pitted against each other to fight to the death and provide entertainment for the masses. Our characters must work together to survive.

It could be a Colosseum-esque setup, or something a la Hunger Games. Or we could change it to something where the criminals are released in a closed-off environment and hunted down for sport; the hunt takes place during the day and ends around evening, to be resumed the next morning.

Depending on how well we think it could work, we could try to make things more interesting and say that Dom crossed your character at some point--killed someone he cared about, maybe screwed over the resistance your character was a part of, something along those lines.

Name: Adam Scott
Age: 19-24
Personality: Loyal, rash, extroverted, flighty
Other Notes: Adam has the potential for smuttier plots, but I am always open to fading to black when sex happens. And keep in mind that plot should always be the primary focus, with good pacing throughout.
Pairings/Vague Ideas: Veteran x civilian, soldiers, soldier x apocalyptic survivor, prostitute/escort/club dancer x client, politician x escort, prostitute x prostitute, sugar daddy x boy, rivals, friends on a road trip/renting a cabin or beach house for the summer, college students
I'll Look After You
Homeless and with nowhere else to turn, Liam takes to the streets. Adam, also a prostitute, meets him, and they find in each other something they both need.

How it begins, exactly, is open for discussion. Argument over turf? A little rivalry? Adam comes across him and offers him a place to stay for the night? Adam becomes his pimp, maybe poaching him off another?

I picture Liam being 18-21.
Make You Want Me
A club isn't Dylan's typical scene. He prefers a night in with a book, or to tinker with his computer, over ear-splitting "music" and drunkards. But here he is, at Eden, the hottest gay club in the city. Maybe friends dragged him there, and maybe stood him up, or maybe he wanted a change of pace. Either way, he's there, off to the side, when he sees one of the club's dancers/strippers take the stage: Adam. Dylan is blown away. He wants him. Even better, Adam mingles with the crowd. It's the perfect opportunity to strike up conversation. Or maybe Adam approaches him directly. Dylan wants to take him home. Adam smiles at the forwardness. "Sure. If you pay me."

Maybe they spoke a few times before Dylan pops the question, maybe there was a private dance involved, maybe Dylan refuses initially before accepting his offer. From there, Dylan wants Adam to want him for more than his money, and Adam wants Dylan to want him, but only so he can milk him for all he's worth. Who wins?

I am okay with Dylan being anywhere from 21-50.

Some Pretty Faces

Just some face claims I'd love to play against if they happen to catch someone's eye. I'm always open to considering a model someone else is craving. As always, though, some are more inspiring than others.

Dylan O'Brien
Taron Egerton
Cody Christian
Anton Lisin
Sam Underwood
Jon Bernthal

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.

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.

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.

Back again with a few new, little ideas.
