Hi there. I've had a plot bunny that has been a big craving for the past few months that I wanted to hash out here. I'm a big fan of fantasy and magic, and I wanted to take a crack at writing a fantasy story where the mechanics of learning magic magic has a heavy emphasis.Who I am looking for:
The biggest thing I desire is an ability to make posts that are at least 4 paragraphs long at a rhythm of at least 1 post per week. Any longer than that threatens to lose my interest, unless there are extenuating circumstances (IE: Exams coming up, IRL stuff, etc.). A good grasp of grammar is also a must. However, I don't have any issue with partners going back and editing their errors after a post is made. I myself do so regularly.General Setting and Content:
The RP takes place in a high fantasy environment with few constraints. Your character could be of any race and personality that suits this genre. Due to the nature of this plot, this RP will likely be a half-and-half mix of sexual and non-sexual, in accordance to an underlying story. Most kinks in this story will be centered around BDSM, and may include slave training, chastity play, overstimulation, light torture, mistress worship, and body modification.
Magic, or rather, the use of magic, is governed by two fundamental principals.
First, you must understand what you are creating. Pyromancers, mages of the battlefield, greatly rely on the study of fire. They spend months, years even, studying the flicker of a flame atop a single candle. Holy mages, healers whom worship the gods, instead devote themselves to understanding their patron deity. Similarly, illusionists study light, alchemists study chemistry, and so on. Every spell ever cast is a reflection of countless hours of study. In a way, magic is science in and of itself. Though only a small minority of civilized life possess enough mana to cast magic, fewer still have intelligence necessary to make use of it.
Or, are willing to pay the price.
The second fundamental principle of magic, and perhaps the most harrowing, is the sacrifice involved. Every aspect of magic requires paying a price that goes beyond mere coin. Time must be paid in full with years of study. Strength is traded for experience, as the constant drain of mana enfeebles the body. Most of all, a teacher is required to learn at all, and their services do not come cheap.
Madame Leblanc is one such teacher.
This famous woman's profession is that of an Arcanist. Where many mages study the sciences to learn magic, Leblanc has opened up new vistas of magical study by researching magic itself. Her greatest accomplishment has been her advances in healing. For centuries, the magic of healing had been the exclusive property of clerics and the divine, as only the Gods themselves knew how to shape a man. Madame Leblanc thought otherwise, and turned this theory on it's head. After years of intense study, she began to produce healing magic through arcane means alone. It's been the source of uproar in the magical communities, particularly among the holy clergies.
Her contributions to magical and mundane world has received official recognition. She's on a first-name basis with His Excellency, the King Rivenne, who has given her the title of 'Archmagister', and heralded her as the "Divine Sculptor of Rivenne." However, beyond her advances and studies, little is known Madame Leblanc herself. She is an exceedingly private woman, and spends most of her days secluded within her manor. What she gets up to within those walls is anyone's guess.
The price for learning Madame Leblanc, however, is infamous. In return fir her tutelage she asks for... everything. Pupils under her are forced to give up everything they own. Their holdings, their trinkets, even their lives are forfeit to Madame Leblanc's whims. A contract with her is the equivalent of signing one's soul away. However, those few students that emerge from her tower in possess almost unnatural skill. Their lives may ever be beneath the heel of Madame Leblanc, but they are destined to do great things in the magical world. Strangely, however, they seem unable to speak of the Madame herself, even when pressed.
Needless to say, Madame Leblanc has not had many apprentices. Even considering the Madame's considerable knowledge, few are willing to pay the dizzying price to learn it.
...Except for you.
((Essentially, your character would be an untrained, prospective mage willing (or desperate enough) to learn magic from Madame Leblanc.))
Yinele "The Divine Sculptor" Leblanc, Archmagister of RivenneAppearance: Madame Leblanc has a kind of haunting beauty to her. Her pale, porcelain skin combined with her piercing blue eyes give her a striking look, the beauty of it further accentuated by her shapely curves. The platinum, shoulder length hair on her head is unnervingly well kept; ending in straight lines without a single hair out of place. She has a particular fixation on the color black, and often wears black silk dresses that hang tightly hug her body. Her voice possesses an educated, almost British tone.
Personality: Madame Leblanc's personality acts in stark contrast to her confident appearance and domineering tastes. In actuality, she's often seen as a nervous wreck. She has a nearly destructive fixation with cleanliness in all aspects of her life, and is weighed down by a host of obsessive-compulsive habits. She has strong need to make everything in her personal space 'Perfect,' which is one of the larger reasons why she demands such a high price of her apprentices.
Though she's reasonably confident speaking in small circles, she's terribly afraid of public areas and large groups of people. Her mind picks out and fixates on all the flaws in the people she sees, which can give her trouble thinking straight when looking at crowds. She rarely, if ever, leaves her tower and prefers to use her servants act on her behalf instead. Despite all this, she's known far and wide as one of the most intelligent mages to ever live. A savant onto her own. While she could never buy groceries at a market, she knows more about inner workings of the universe than almost anyone.
Sexually, Madame Leblanc never felt comfortable exposing herself unless she was in total control of her partner. If anyone is to share her personal space, they have to be thoroughly under her control first. They must be made 'perfect', like everything else she allows in her space, before she can enjoy their company.
Feel free to send me a PM if interested. I'm very flexible, and would love to hear about any character you might have in mind for this story.
