You're welcome. :-) Yes, it was a good, albeit long day. Almost over now, though! And the weekend ahead.
Hope you have a great plan/role playing for the weekend  :D

Hurray weekend! And hello forum!
A wise person once told me that good things never get old. And they were right! At least when it comes to the weekend. Don't know about others, but there's something about Friday nights and Saturday mornings that put a spring in my step. So here's a post wishing everyone a great weekend.

Thank goodness for weekends. They're an opportunity to relax, but they're also an opportunity to work. The week creates lost opportunities. The weekend stops enough happenings to collect what's been lost and throw away the excess. Right now, my lost opportunities have been chances to learn, and upon realizing several pursuits are dumb-dumb and stupid, have been promptly nuked.

I'm having my Saturday cup of coffee with a side of healthy salt. Hope you're all doing well.

Thanks Strega, Flower and all the great pals around here.
Sunday is surely the best day for thinking and devising new characters, worlds and words for our beloved leisure activities (if creating can be considered such a thing).

Have great ideas! Have a great day!

Now then...

Lol sounds like you've got a head full of character. Not a bad thing at all.

Do you have any favorite stories that you've had a partner for? That isn't to say your absolute favorite, as I know that can be hard to pick, but just ones that you've really enjoyed.

Do you go back and read over your rps?

And, have you had a rp you were really enjoying but then your partner disappeared? If so, what was the plot?

I do have some favourites for sure, I think all writers probably do and I've been really lucky here at E to have some amazing partners help me tell some gorgeous stories. <3
I frequently go back and read those that have been finished and am always looking back over my current ones to see what I need to work into my posts and such. :D
I've been RPing for about 14 years so I've naturally had those stories that were going well and then...poof! But I've been fortunate in that most have either become solo projects ;D or I've retried from the beginning with another partner later on when it became clear the original writer wasn't coming back.

What about you? Do you have a favourite RP that has stuck in your mind?

Not that I mind you moving the conversation here, but isn't the point of the intro thread for staff and members seeking approval to converse?

What sort of plots are your favorites though and same question to the ones that you've enjoyed so much that you either went solo on them or tried it with a new partner?

I have several, but the two that come to mind both involve dragons.

One was about a Sky Commander, who well, commanded the cavalry that could fly (wyverns, dragons, griffons, etc) and a stable hand. He eventually joins the cavalry. I was really enjoying the setting and characters, but life happened to my partner and they vanished.

That was years ago. The second is more recent. It's actually the sample of writing that I left in my intro. A dragonless dragon rider and an injured dragon meet. We didn't get very far. Life, again.

It is but as I'd asked several questions already, I wanted to move our conversation here so other staff, mentors and members can get to know you too. Don't want to 'hog' you after all ;D

Plus it was a good way to show you another part of E, a cunning plan on my part... ;)

I tend to be something of a romantic at heart but as romance can come in many forms the stories I've particularly enjoyed have covered a range of genres and content - I do love a good historically set story though (bit of a history geek). Stories with love of the epic sort are my cup of tea. <3 Whether it's a runaway princess and the pirate captain she falls for, or the enemies who end up closer than they would ever have expected to be.

One of the ones I ended up writing solo was a WW2 story about a German POW sent to work on a farm in the UK and the widow he ended up working for. My partner was wonderful but vanished and the idea was too vivid in my mind to just let it go. So, after waiting a long time, I started from the beginning and completed it for Nano one year. It's one of my many novel projects I plan to go back and polish at some point. ;D

And oooh, dragons! They sound fabulous storylines but it's true, sometimes even the most awesome of stories can't escape the effects of real life.

Ahh I see. I've done a couple enemies ending up close rps, but none that have really gripped me yet.

How long is the WW2 novel now?

And oooh, dragons! They sound fabulous storylines but it's true, sometimes even the most awesome of stories can't escape the effects of real life.

Sad, but true.

What sort of rps do you have going on currently?
