High Fantasy and Burning Passions (F for any)
« on: March 21, 2015, 11:54:28 PM »
Before we Begin:

Hello and welcome to my request thread. It should be updated from time to time as I come up with more ideas, so feel free to check back.

I would like to make it clear from the beginning that ideas are generally written as M/F with my character being female for convenience only. I have no issue taking on the male role unless otherwise specified. I'm also not one to quibble about the gender of the writer on the other side of the interwebs so long as the character that they put out if believable. I'm also not at all averse to modifying ideas to be M/M or F/F. While I will happily play across from a non-binary gender character, I'm not sure I could do the character justice so refrain from writing them myself. 

What I'm looking for in a roleplay partner is simple. Someone who can put a sentence together and write in paragraphs. I don't expect perfection, but please at least try with spelling and grammar. Someone who will keep at least enough OOC communication to let me know if there are issues with the story, or if they're going to be gone for a month or more. I don't mind waiting for posts, I can be a bit of a slow poster myself. It's also important that any partners are able to add to the plot and setting along with me. Nothing will lose my interest faster than having to drive everything, it takes all involved parties to make a story work.

My likes, dislikes, and roles I will for sure play can all be found in my roleplay preferences, that nifty little link under my avvie, and I would appreciate it if you would read them before contacting me about a story, just as I will before I get back to you. You will also find links to some of my roleplays there, if you're curious for a writing sample. I will say that very little is set in stone, and there are offs that I may consider if there is a logical reason that they are necessary to, or would otherwise enhance the story. Anything that belongs in the toilet does not fall into that category. I will not play a character under the age of 18.

I think that about covers the boring stuff. So, onward to story ideas.

High Fantasy:

I often fine myself in want of fantasy. You know the kind set in far off, fantastical worlds full of magic and mayhem? Yeah, that kind of place. Where the sky is some outlandish color or there's more than one moon. Or maybe all of the above. Or maybe, we're simply borrowing an existing world from the realms of Dungeons and Dragons or our favorite fantasy authors. The settings, as long as they are in an age of Lord's and Ladies, Kings and Knights, are largely up for discussion. Magic! My mind, my muse, and my very soul want magic! Dragons too! Can't forget the dragons...

The Black Unicorn:

He'd stalked her dreams for weeks now. Always lurking there on the outskirts of whatever image may appear. A black unicorn, one with a rider on his back. She didn't know what the dreams meant, only that her family seemed to think they were the herald of some great evil that was to befall her. Even still she was fascinated by the dreams, by the sheer presence of the unicorn and rider. Even just barely on the outskirts of her dreams, she could feel their gaze upon her as if they truly stood only inches away. She couldn't bring herself to believe that these creatures meant her harm, despite all her families warning, and ultimately their attempts to "keep her safe" drove her away. That's when she met them, on a darkened night in a the depths of a forest. That's when they saved her, but for what ends did this cold creature and his too intelligent mount save her from the beasts that had sought to make her their supper? Had her family perhaps been right? There was no way to know, and now, she was his prisoner.

This would be set in a generic fantasy setting that we could flesh out a bit more before hand or as we go. I would be playing the "stalked" character and you would be playing the rider. The race of your character is mostly up to you, but my mind initial thoughts are along the lines of a demon or fallen angel on their Hellfire Steed. Or some such.

A Fish out of Water: (Any)

This is a general trope I'm fond of. Have a character you want to throw into a world different from their own? I have such a world. :) Or, have a world of your creation that you want a character that's not of your design to play in? I could swing that one too. This is one of those general ideas that I would love to have more than one game based off of, they always turn out different and so very much fun. This can also be a fun general trope to throw into another plot to add a little more drama.

Minding a Princess: (Vanilla - Bondage) In play.
Start with a strong willed princess, just about to turn twenty-one, add in a kingdom in turmoil because her father has been missing for several months, and a rule of law that requires she wed before her twenty-first birthday or the kingdom is forfeit. What is the king's Knight Commander to do in his liege's stead?

I want to play this as more of a light fluffy story with a dark side. We can work out the particulars together, if anyone is interested. What I would like to see from this one is a fantasy story, in some generic fantasy setting.

Modern Scifi/Fantasy:

Angel's Redemption:(Likely Bon-Ex)

She was an angel, cast down to Earth to be taught a lesson in compassion when angered by her belief in the "heresy" and faithlessness of humanity she failed in her work. To be taught her lesson, her memory and angelic powers were taken from her. To be shown the conditions of the woman she failed to help in her time of need, she was thrust into her circumstances or at least given the memories. In a particularly sour moment, she ends up in jail, or a mental hospital. This is where her redemption would slowly begin.

Ultimately, I could see this as a game in which the angelic character that's sent to save her just gets in the way. They're too high in the instep or something. There was supposed to be a lesson for them in bringing her to redemption and they're about to fail it.

I would prefer the other character be someone or something that you'd never expect to be the path to redemption. A demon, or some other supposedly "evil" creature. My only real preference in this would be playing the character that is to be redeemed.

The Darkness in the Light:
A very general idea that I'm usually up to with the proper partner, involving the corruption of innocence.
Here's an example:
There's a tale from long ago of an angel. One who was taken and tortured by the demons of Hell. That story was true. Now he's been released unto the world to wreck what chaos he may. Lost to pain and anger with a thirst for vengeance he must be stopped and so the Host of Heaven send their most favored to show him the light. She's young, barely more than a girl but with the purist of hearts and the uncanny ability to love anything no matter how vile. Can she help the lost one? Will she be able to console him through his pain, or will he corrupt her beyond redemption?

The Road Not Taken:(Any) Craving
Leigh McAllister, once the second half of the dreaded "Chimera" is now alone. In one fell swoop a crafty terrorist has stolen her family from her. Her sister and partner is no more. Her parents, the ones that had introduced her to the life of intrigue are long dead. Lost to the game that they played everyday with their lives. There's nothing left to do but hide.

With enemies around every corner, or so it seems, can Leigh find a way to lead a normal life? Can she disappear into the world of the average person? Her life may depend on her ability to walk the road not taken.

There's a lot of leeway, and a lot of ways this one could go. Maybe your character is a government agent. Maybe their an average every day person. Or perhaps they're the villain themselves. I would even be willing to run this as a group game if someone was willing to co-GM. I was wanting to set this in Colorado Springs because it's the right size for someone to go disappear into without being overly obvious.  Bonus if there's StarGate involvement, though it's far from required. Just seems like something that could be fun to play with.

In Dreams: (Any) Craving
MacKenzie Metzer was just out of high school when the dreams first began. She didn't know what they meant. In the beginning they were blurry around the edges. Hints of eyes, a voice that echoed in her ears after she woke. Over time they became clearer.  Coalesced into the form a man that she'd never met. So the dreams continued, becoming more vivid, more frightening. He would tell her things, this man in her dreams. Things about herself that she never would have guessed.

Kenzie, as she preferred to be called however had a special gift. One that got her into great amounts of trouble. She could walk through walls. She wasn't sure where the gift came from. Only that she could do so, it was a secret she guarded carefully, but one day, it got out. She was approached then by a group of people that called themselves "Oasis". The wanted her to retrieve things for her. Dangerous magical things. Things that could cause harm if they fell into the wrong hands. Sheltered by overprotective adoptive parents, Kenzie was just naive enough not to question how she could possibly know that theirs were the right ones. So it was that she was used, and cast aside when she ceased to be of use. Cast right into prison.

That's when she met him for the first time. The man from her dreams, and he was there to free her. Would he be her salvation, or would he pave her way to hell?

Alice: (Any) Major Craving

Alice, that wasn't her name, but that's what they'd all come to call her. No one knew exactly who she was, only that she'd seen things that sounded like they came straight out of Wonderland. That was how she'd found her way into this asylum. She wasn't crazy though, those things actually existed, and the world would never be the same when the unseen world began to touch the seen.

The basic premise here is extremely loosely based off of Changeling: the Dreaming. There would be absolutely no system involved and I have very little exposure to that system, but there was a group game that doesn't seem to be starting that got this idea in my head and now I wants to play with it.

Fluffy Bunnies:

This is a special section specifically for roleplay ideas that are of the soft, fluffy persuasion and intended to stay that way. Now if you really like something you see here and have a very good idea for a darker version please pitch it to me! Most things found in this section will be romantic in nature. Please note that drama, action, and adventure will likely still be present, just presented in a manner that would be more family friendly, you know, except for the inevitable sex scenes... Humor and cuteness are to be expected.

You're a What?:

It's a simple case of woman meets man. Or at least that's how it seems at first when he bumps into her in the mall. She falls down, he helps her up, they get to talking. Unbeknownst to her however, he's a spy, and has slipped something into her purse to ensure it gets safely out of the mall.

I'm thinking something along the lines of a more modern Scarecrow and Mrs. King. For those who don't know what that is, it's an 80's spy show, very family friendly and full of humor. That's what I'm going for with this one.

To Catch a Wolf:

What's the best way to catch a wolf? Why that's simple, just think like one!

There's a feral beast terrorizing the countryside. It's doing the unthinkable, tearing up peoples undergarments while they hang on the line. Within a week, the people of the town are without any undergarments to wear without making new ones. The worst part? The townsfolk have seen a wolf doing so, but no one has caught the fell beast.

Gathering their courage, the townsfolk send their best hunter into the woods to find the Forest Maiden. No one knows her name, only that she was raised by wolves and therefore can understand them in ways that no one else could. Can she help them catch the beast and save their modesty?

Through the Gate:

This is perhaps the only fandom roleplay request you will see from me in which cannon characters are expected.

This could go one of two ways:

Way one: SG-1 (Any or all members) end up in a world they can't seem to find a way off of. They came through the Stargate, but there wasn't one to be found on this side. What happened here, and how do they get home? More to the point, what are with all these creatures that look like they came out of Middle Earth? (They end up on Sakura, a world of my creation.)

Way two: No one is sure where she came from, but a small red headed person who can't seem to speak a lick of English is in their mess hall. What inevitably happens in a situation like this? Any available member of SG-1 gets to clean it up, that's what.

This is perhaps the only time I will be willing to rp cannon characters though my major would of course be the original one in the second way, or the people's they encounter in the first. If you want to have a little fun with this, feel free. I don't really expect anyone to be fully in character in this one, though kudos if you can write them that way.

Fandoms in Which I Will Play:

I'm going to preface this section by making it clear that I rarely play cannon characters as player characters. If you have a wish to, I will play opposite them happily enough. I just prefer to fic for interaction between cannon characters as to avoid issues caused by personal perceptions of the characters. That said, here's the list:

1. Stargate: SG1
2. Highlander
3. Lost Girl
4. The Bedlam's Bard universe
5. Buffy:TVS
6. Tamora Pierce's Tortall
7. Torchwood/ Dr. Who: This one could be a little tricky not involving any cannon characters too much though...
8. Forgotten Realms: As a freeform, not using the D&D systems as more than a general guide with no rolls involved.
9. Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar
10. Gallagher Girls books

Those are just the ones that come to mind off the top of my head. I'm sure there are others, so feel free to ask. I think that about sums it up for now. Thank you for taking the time to read through this, and happy roleplaying.

Hello folks, I'm back about and looking for roleplay partners.
