Lingo's Pairings and IdeasHello there, and thank you for looking at my search thread! I have a few vague ideas for stories that I was hoping would inspire a fellow writer to brainstorm. As the title suggests, I am looking for stories that are heavily plot-driven, not focused primarily on smut. Of course, these stories have opportunity for such situations to occur, but I ask that they are put into the story in a way that makes sense to the plot and characters' desire and motives. Essentially, I prefer a balance of 70% plot and 30% smut. While the descriptions you see here are vague, I will gladly further explain any ideas I have for the plot, and greatly welcome your own twists on these stories, or even a reversal of roles. Before I list my ideas, I'd note a few important points,1. Your RL gender is irrelevant here; I welcome all writers!
2. I prefer descriptive writing and character exploration. By all means, make YC as rich as you'd like. Pictures (Real life, please) are preferable, but not mandatory.
3. Continuing above, I myself enjoy writing descriptively and multiple paragraphs. I do not like imposing word limits on myself or my partners- naturally, some scenes (introductions, etc) inspire me to write pages, others (like exchanging dialogue) only require 2 paragraphs. All I ask is that you give depth to your posts, and I will try my best to give you something equally engaging.
Now, onto zee plots, yes? VERY INTERESTED IN PLAYING: In My Skin. Inspiration/Face-claim: Zombie Boy, Rick Genest
Modern setting- although a place with vast segregation of the haves and have nots and conservative values, similar to a current victorian era? MC is a conservative, sheltered girl who has recently moved out from under her wealthy parentsí scrutiny. YC (Zombie Boy) is from the other sideof town with an appearance that would make her parents faint. Occasionally, he covers these tattoos to better blend in with society, for whatever reason. On one of these occasions, the two meet, and a mutual attraction develops. For the first time, YC is ashamed of his ink and worried of what MC would think, or if a relationship with her would be possible. His fear of showing his uncovered skin to her, the blossoming (or floundering) of their relationship, are all aspects Iíd like to explore. A Loyal Customer. Inspired by American Psycho
