This is a temporary solo request to test the dynamics of a character I use in literature. This solo request will be active for a short period that is currently undecided, but if it shuts down one day and you wanted to/didn’t get a chance to participate, I’m sorry. Maybe I’ll open it up again some other time in the future.
What This Is
You may have seen writing all over my O/Os or in my signature about me mentioning The Evil One. I’ve been on Elliquiy for awhile, and I had never opened my doors to this character until now—no real reason as to why not sooner. I am giving writers the opportunity to interact with this character I have. I will be making observations as this happens. Not observations that you need to concern yourself with since this is for me and that character’s continued development. By finding interest or agreeing to take part in this solo RP, you not only give yourself a chance to play with the bad of the bad, but you also assist me with some reassurance that this character is either effective or ineffective when it comes to literary response.
How to Pass the Application Process
Literacy – You must be literate. You must have some sort of spell check. I do not care if you make small typos that really don’t matter, but if you misspell all the time (eyh guys hw r u) and don’t know how to use a proper period, comma, or semi-colon, you just may turn me off and thus the game will end. I’m not trying to seem like an ass, but good writing should be your number one priority. It’s what separates the writer from the mediocre role player.
Description, Detail, and Character – Please. If you write a personality for your character, follow it through. I do not want to see you breaking the fourth wall. Breaking the fourth wall is when your IRL feelings filter into your character, and thus the character is no longer a separate entity. It turns into you. I can tell when anyone is going out-of-character. That is easily noticeable if you’re doing something outside what her personality says. Please do not break the fourth wall. If she is feisty, I expect her to be feisty. If she is easily frightened, then I expect her to be. If she’s a fighter, then I expect her to be. You must know though what is too much and what is not enough. If she’s a fighter, yet you wanted her to be dominated, then do not have her endlessly resist every attempt made because then it all just becomes long-winded, and it’ll get boring very quick. If she’s timid, then don’t have her just screaming and flailing about endlessly. People get tired. Please show some realism and logic.
Description and Detail are the two most important factors to be paired with character. I want to feel, smell, and to be able to visualize your character. If you plan to describe her, then describe her the way you mentally see her. Cinnamon tendrils, pouty lips, thick thighs, creamy flesh… That example calls out to the senses. You shouldn’t let a photograph of your character try and explain everything. It really doesn’t. What is she wearing? If you have to, use NPCs to give her something to interact with so that I may be able to see her personality in action. In the end, this is all writing. This is what writing is.
Logic – This may sound silly, but this little aspect is very hard to find now a days. All I ask is for you to have logic in your writing. If she is going from one place to another do not write: Steps out of the car and walks into the club, over to the bar, sits down, feels like using the bathroom, gets up, enters the bathroom. Do you see how crappy that is? There is so much detail left out of that thread of nonsense. The mysterious woman is also walking through time and space apparently. We never saw if she was crossing a sidewalk, entering a door, weaving through dancers in a club. What the fuck? Please don’t force me to read stuff like that. You could have described her whole being, her surroundings, and her thoughts by the time she got to the bar counter and sat down. Do not grab stuff out of nowhere that wouldn’t logically be there. Do not fight as though no one can hit you back. I don’t care how afraid you are of having your beautiful, Mary Sue of a character getting struck in the face or dying. I do not care. I digress now.
Quality and Quantity – I don’t care how many people try and separate these twins. They belong together. They need each other. Quantity can be a whole page of garbage without quality. Quality will not be able to describe the whole pie without quantity. Keep these twins together. Write me at least a paragraph, 200 words. But I love a player who can write at least one page. A good, sexy one page that flows, has description, detail and character. If you can do that then we may be RPing together for a very long time.
Activity – If you do not have time to role play, then do not waste my time. I do not care if you’re working, watching your kids, or whatever. If you do not have time to RP, then you don’t need to be signing up to this RP because your job and your kids come first. I require that you at least be active and able to post at least once a day. Sometimes I don’t always post once a day, but I can promise at least 3 times a week. That is the activity I want. If it seems too difficult, then don’t try it. You’ll only waste both of our times.
These requirements sound elementary don’t they? You’ll be surprised how difficult they are to meet.
