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!The Cool Kid Genres

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?City Slums 1
Having been a prostitute for a year or so, Character A has seen his fair share of the city's underbelly. Maybe he's been more fortunate than others, not being under the thumb of a pimp or having the luxury of getting clients without having to work the streets. The less fortunate ones, he has never batted an eye at them--but then comes Character B: a younger guy, only 18-20, homeless, doing what he has to in order to survive. Character A is compelled to help, take him under his wing if not altogether free him from the life that he himself is living. But will it work, or will Character B only bring him more problems?
This could turn into a gang story instead.City Slums 2
Something like the show Shameless. Character A has had to take on a father role and support his younger siblings since they are unable to rely on their real parents (they're deadbeats, one is AWAL and the other is recently deceased, etc.). Along comes Character B. Is he here to help, or is he just a distraction from the trouble brewing within the rest of the family?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.Redemption/Retribution
Character A's high school life has been hell thanks in at least some part to Logan
, the school's bullies. It's senior year, and it's starting off great: a newbie teacher, oblivious to the history between the two teens, has assigned Character A and Brayden to be partners for a project. Having to work outside of class, it will bring them closer than either of them might care for.
Little does Character A know, Brayden has been thinking about turning over a new leaf, not wanting everyone to remember him as the guy who made their lives miserable, but Logan is the kind of guy who's hard to say no to. Will Brayden seek redemption? Will Character A try to make the most of this situation and seek retribution?For the Love of Fandom
Not looking for canon characters, just the universe.Teen Wolf
To be honest, I'm only into the season 1 & 2 lore, so anything involving werewolves, hunters, normal humans, or maybe kanimas, would be cool.Mass Effect
Either the Mass Effect universe or something with a Mass Effect feel, like where a crew is off to take care of a threat or go on some wild adventure. Some ideas:
The Walking Dead
- Captain x crewmate
- Soldier x soldier during Reaper invasion
- Soldier x refugee on Earth
- Refugee x refugee on Earth
- Something like the Andromeda Initiative
Virtually any plot or pairing that could work within this universe would probably work fine for me. Some ideas:
The Hunger Games
- 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
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.
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
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
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, despite having come from a seemingly nice household. 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. He wants a relationship, but he's afraid of letting someone in that close. Will he get what he's looking for, or is he doomed to loneliness?Handyman/gardener
x client, single dad x other guy
, abusive boyfriend x boyfriend
x older, addict/alcoholic x clean guy
, poor man
x wealthy man
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 is an older teen who 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
Raised by adoptive parents, clumsy, introverted Tommy often feels like a fish out of water, drifting between social circles and sometimes trying to fit in where he doesn't belong. Having flown the nest, he's hoping to figure things out this time.
College students, friends on a road trip, ex-friends, new neighbor, trip to Mexico, roommates trying to make ends meet while coming to terms with feelings for each other
