Welcome to my Ons and Offs!
Availability: Looking for roleplays!
Posting: Usually daily
Now, first things first, take a look at the charming fellow to your left. He is meant to remind you that we're all only human and behind whatever persona you are roleplaying with, there is a person. So let's follow some basic human guidelines and I'm sure we'll get along swimmingly Respect:
Sometimes just a little bit of courtesy goes a long way. Real life happens, posts are delayed, muses are missing for a short while, the works. Respect me as a human being with a life outside of E and as a writer who sometimes needs time to think.Communication:
This is a must. If there's a problem, with anything, let me know. Whether your going to be away, our posting speeds aren't lining up, my post length is inappropriate, or that tiny little accidental comma instead of a full stop is bugging you, just tell me! I won't bite, usually Enthusiasm:
No one wants to feel unwanted, neither do me or my characters. I pour energy and imagination into every post, I hope you'll do the same. If an RP isn't working out, it's not what you expected, or it's just not your thing anymore, that ok, sometimes it happens. I'd much rather let you get on with your other projects, and maybe we will write again sometime in the future. That way, we can all be happy role-players here on E!
Things that make me go mmmm...Plot, plot and plot!:
I love a good story. We all love smut, that's why we're here, BUT NOT ALL THE TIME! I put a lot of effort into character and world building and adore exploring and achieving things in those worlds. We can't do that from the bed room; well, usually not OOC Chat:
Nothing puts me in a better state of mind to write than knowing that I'm writing with someone friendly that I get on with. Ask about the weather, query my posts, send a meme! This site is full of awesomely friendly and welcoming people, I'm sure your one of them Brainstorming and plot thrashing:
Come on, who doesn't like too let their plot bunnies out to play with each other? Seriously, PM me with a rough idea and ask for a brainstorm, you got yourself an RP!Just a little literacy:
I'm not a grammar Nazi. I don't demand a novel per post. Just give things a read over, give the writing some flow, don't make reading a chore! Some punctuation, a little bit of pacing, maybe even capitals on occasion and I'm sure we'll be fine.Realistic Characters:
Characters are people too! Or at least for roleplaying purposes we've given them human-esque thoughts and emotions. Meaning they should have flaws! I'm not looking for some angelic perfect goddess to play against, I want to play against a character I can believe. Intelligent/Funny/Sassy/Witty Characters:
These are traits I find simply compelling. Make me laugh or smirk as I read and you've got me hooked. What better than a savvy sassy smart-ass to get into line eh? Unpredictable smut:
When does sex ever go according to plan? Even in a deep D/s relationship there are funnies and slip-ups. Your character is allowed to mix it up, ask for something, try something new, don't feel I'll be offended at experimentation!Red Heads:
Don't ask me why, maybe it's a Scottish thing. There is just something about a red head that implies a little ferocity.Girl Next Door types:
Let's just not do the psychoanalysis on this one... Needles to say, throw an idea at me involving a sassy girl in some ass-tight jeans, you got me.I'm sure I'll think of more...
Things that will get you spanked!And not in the good way...OOC Rudeness or general nastiness:
We're all mature adults here, hence why this is such an amazing community. Let's not bitch and act like children. If there's a problem, don't just ignore me, talk it out. Don't just disappear if role-play is no longer your cup of tea. I'm a chatty person OOC, I love the back and fourths along side our RP, if it bugs you, tell me, don't take my head off!Being pressured into role-plays:
This has happened an alarming number of times since I join this site. Messages or invites to IM chats where I am then hounded into a role-play I have no muse for. I use roleplaying as a creative literary outlet, meaning that if something doesn't inspire me with character ideas, plot twists and delicious dialogue then I'm not interested. Take no for an answer, I'll happily listen to your new ideas in the future.Inappropriate post lengths:
No one-liners! As you'll come too see, I put a lot of effort into my posts, and expect a decent effort to be applied in response. A couple of lines responding to the story's actions while descripting nothing and failing to advance the plot or explore the setting, not my thing. Now I'm going to sound like a picky kind of guy, but I'm not I promise. I just don't need three paragraphs describing an inconsequential NPC or a short novel pondering one character's navel. Posts bulked out for the sake of making them bigger, more wordy and utterly indigestible do nothing than apply pressure for me to respond with an equally inappropriately long reply. And so on. So, big climactic scenes, opening descriptions, passages of time; feel free to blow me out the water. Fast paced action sequences, plot developing dialogue, ante-scenes between major developments; don't write for writing's sake.Overly NaÔve Female Characters:
This is something that just annoys me. It tends to lead to some really straightforward plots and really struggles to be an attribute in a female character I want to play against. Sometimes naivety is appropriate, but most of the time I want a girl that's got something about her. Dare I say spunk?
