I'm open to play by forum post or messengers. This post is just the same as the one I have up under non-forum requests
These are two ideas I have cravings for, but I am open to suggestions if you have something nifty in mind. I prefer to play male or intersexed characters. While I love playing against canon characters, I am flat-out awful at playing them myself. I enjoy BDSM scenes (I tend to play submissives and switches), but they are certainly not something I require.
I'm Not Your Princess
I've been kicking around an idea for a while involving a semi unwilling romance between a character of mine, Beinir, and a King/Prince. Beinir is world wanderer and a supernatural creature who spends more of his time away from his homeworld than on it. He is a gentle, sweet-tempered soul who takes a charitable view towards those he meets, and he can afford to do this because he is able to rip a man's skeleton out through his eye socket. Despite being a monster, Beinir was raised as a human and looks like a small, slender, androgynous blond man in his late teens or early twenties. He is easily mistaken for a woman in looks and mannerisms, and actually spends a significant amount of his time cross dressing. His culture is rather sexual, and he himself is polyamorous and tends to form sexual friendships. Beinir is submissive/switchy with people he knows, and rather vanilla with new partners.
For all that he loves to take care of people, Beinir is extremely independent. He is uninterested in a relationship that progresses beyond friendship and casual sex. At this point in his life, a partner is unthinkable - he can't even stand to share his life with a pet. He has had several relationships with older, wealthy men that ended badly, and has become wary of them because of this.
And this is where your character comes in. Maybe he's the king's brother and wants to find a wife before he gets married off to someone unpleasant and political. Maybe he's the actual king, and can marry anyone he damn well pleases - he just hasn't found the right person. Or maybe he's not royalty at all, and is actually a powerful CEO or a wizard. Or maybe you have something in mind that is completely different and awesome. The point is that the two meet and form a friendship that goes swimmingly...right up until your character decides he wants something more.
Not All Masters Are Willing
Ansel is pretty comfortable with his life - he's got his studies, he's got his volunteering and he's got a way with the supernatural that's landed him an awesome job as a liaison with the more eerie side of the world. True, he unintentionally ruins every budding relationship he's ever had (let's not even get into the embarrassing Spaghetti-bug incident), but a guy doesn't need a partner to be fulfilled - that's what work is for. His life is good, and on the whole, he's content.
So when he accidentally acquires a bodyguard and slave, he's a bit taken aback. Ansel doesn't think he needs a bodyguard and he damn well knows he doesn't want a slave. He especially doesn't want this particular slave, who seems to have some aggression issues.
Ansel isn't the weak reed he seems, though - there's a core of steel under all that nerdy softness, and he has ways of defending himself if he's pushed. He's a
powerful mage in his own right, and when his slow temper is finally ignited, he's downright dangerous.
I've tried to leave the details on the guard deliberately vague, so that it's easier to fit in your own character. As far as how the two meet up, I've roughed out these possibilities:
1. The bodyguard is bound to Ansel by way of him accidentally triggering a magical item. The two of them have to fend off attacks by those who want the item themselves - it could be the key to greater power, or they just want the magical bodyguard, or both.
2. Ansel more or less inherits the bodyguard by virtue of being a component in a spell to bring about Armageddon, or to control all of those of the bodyguard's race/culture. The bodyguard is the lucky, lucky person who got chosen to guard this annoying new liability.
3. Ansel managed to impress/perform a service for someone powerful, and was gifted the bodyguard. I'm a little hesitant about this one, as I think it would be a bit frustrating for the guard - they really would be kind of wasted on him, as his life is not that innately dangerous. It does have the advantage of not needing any sort of combat, though.
Ansel is a virgin, and has never really considered BDSM.
If you are interested in combat, I'm up for it, provided we alternate the antagonists. Beyond that, details can be hashed out together. If you like the general idea but aren't into modern settings, or would rather play the bodyguard as a gun-toting cowboy samurai (and if you do, you are awesome) or something else, I am willing to change things around. I'm open to fandom characters as well.
