Hello everyone. I have a few story ideas that I'm seeking partners for. As most people tend to bypass the rules when reading through the idea, I'm posting them first.

1) No sexual content. I don't write it. I am, however, seeking players 18 and above. Most of my content has triggering themes such as ongoing and past abuse, drugs and alcohol, mentions of rape, and dark themes involving bloodshed, war, and gore.

2) Multi-paragraph. I want content to work with. I can understand a paragraph during a slow conversation scene, but the bulk has to be multiple paragraphs.

3) I don't usually do this, but I need a sample of your writing. Too often people have claimed to be what they aren't, and I'm hoping to head that off at the pass.

4) Be able to post, at the bare minimum, once every few days. We all have busy lives, especially with the college semesters coming up, home lives, illnesses, and children, but I would like to keep the story going.

Now, for the ideas. Some of them may seem generic, but they can be built upon. Most were ones that I had when I started role playing, and they're dear to me.

Note- I do have more in a file online. If you can follow the rules above and wish to see the list, comment or message me.

Secondary note- You will be playing the male characters.

1) A medieval story about a girl of 17 who is sent the king as a ward after her parents die of the sweating sickness. Her father was once a revered man at court and high in the king’s favor. However, as time goes on, he sees how sheltered she is, and learns of the awful truth of her father. While his feelings grow, a plot by a rival family threatens to destroy her, and her good standing.

Themes- Romance, violence, possibility of war. Historical only.

2) X-Men- Takes place after the first movie. Wolverine is on patrol when he spots the body of a young woman in the bushes inside the school grounds. He takes her to the medical ward where it is discovered that she’d been a prisoner of a local gang of mutant haters. She is blind, mute, and two months pregnant. Need someone able to play Logan as he is.

Themes- Romance, violence, mentions of abuse.

3) Boy and girl hook up at a party. Two months later, the girl finds him and announces her pregnancy. She tells him she won’t ask for his help, and that he’s off the hook. Three months go by before they see each other again. She is living on the streets. He convinces her to come live with him at his parents house. The story is about their journey in growing up, accepting responsibility, and finding each other emotionally.

Themes- Eventual romance, slice of life, coming of age.

4) Man comes to work for a husband and wife as body guard to their daughter; an up and coming singer. He’s to make sure she stays on task, and is well guarded, but also to report her daily activities. He notices she sneaks out at night, hangs with kids her own age, even sings in clubs. He reports it all, until he comes to realize the punishment they inflict upon her. Now, he wants to try to help save her by keeping her secrets, and helping her become emancipated from their control.

Themes- Abuse, later romance.

5) A young woman is drafted and sent off to war. Who was once a bright and vibrant soul comes home tormented by what she’s seen. Carrying the coffin of a dearest friend, she blames herself for his death, and struggles to cope with day to life. As the story progresses, more is learned about what happened while overseas, and with helps from friends and family, she begins her road to recovery.

Themes- Slice of life, romance, drama, acts of war, bloodshed, PTSD. Most of the content, especially in the flashbacks, will be graphic in nature.

6) A girl from a prominent family meets a local boy with a bad reputation. During their two relationship, she defends his attitude and sticks with him through hardship. He treats her like a queen, and so stays blind to his faults. However, when she discovers she's pregnant, she leaves his mother basement and strikes out on her own. His sweet words and promises of change bring her back, but a fight ensues between himself and his enemies. Caught in the crossfire, she loses the child.

Once she leaves him for good, this story can take three turns, but those can be discussed in private message. It will start at the beginning, so you'll need two OC's.

Themes- Romance, violence, possibility of murder, miscarriage.

Hello there, I am a returnee writer who is looking for a chance to dust off the rust

I am quite interested in your 1st idea, but allow me to clarify. Are you looking for partner(s) in pre-determined story and characters, or are you just pitching your character idea and we are allowed to make our own casts of supporting characters for you?

Thank you and nice to meet you :)

Interested! Since you know I just joined, I can send you some of my writing from my last roleplay a couple years ago. I'd be interested in seeing more ideas that you have!
I'd be interested in anything that's more medieval based, kind of like your idea with the king. Play males isn't something I've done a lot, but I'd be willing to try!

@Candlelitsoul Hello Candle! I hope you don't mind, but I wanted to combine all of your ideas in one quote and respond to the ideas I'm interested in playing with you and also making my own comments, giving you a writing sample and proposing ideas of my own in addition to yours. Just basic ideas for now to keep things simple. More details can be discussed in PM's if your interested in RPing with me since I'm new to this website. I'd like to work with you and I hope you would like to work with me.

1) No sexual content. I don't write it. I am, however, seeking players 18 and above. Most of my content has triggering themes such as ongoing and past abuse, drugs and alcohol, mentions of rape, and dark themes involving bloodshed, war, and gore.


Now this is one of the best things that drew me to your ideas since I am 100% in agreement with you regarding no sexual content. Now, I'm not against romance and I'll play it out with other Role-Players, but it's always a fast forward for me and a black curtain if it's going to go any further than a kiss on the lips. So, in regards to that, we're in agreement.

2) Multi-paragraph. I want content to work with. I can understand a paragraph during a slow conversation scene, but the bulk has to be multiple paragraphs.


Same here and I will do my level best to give you content to work with that is at least 3 or more paragraphs per post.

3) I don't usually do this, but I need a sample of your writing. Too often people have claimed to be what they aren't, and I'm hoping to head that off at the pass.


Very reasonable. Here is a sample of my writing:

The war hit like a storm of raging wildfire and the hundreds of years that it took man to build his creations of brick and wood, it only took hours to tear it all down. Eric was a soldier in that war and he fought with bravery, as well as valor. But it was all for naught. The war was lost and Eric was one of the few lucky soldiers to come home to his family. He didn't need to look at their faces to know they were afraid, but he knew they were. But he needed to look strong, he was the man of the house and everyone looked up to him for leadership. Even his wife. As they pack their things, getting ready to move to the underground bunker, Eric tries his best to give what comfort he can to a family he can barely hold together.

How does one deal with the world ending? There are so many questions that go unanswered. Despair hits and suicides end up at an all time high. How would you convince your children that life is still worth living? Will the world continue or will his family be the last one on Earth? Will Eric and his wife end up as the new Adam and Eve? If Eric was not already married, would he make out with a woman he barely met just to have some last moments of pleasure? Would Eric resort to robbing stores for food? Would he kill other people simply to survive and protect his family? He shudders at all of these thoughts.

Eric clenches his jaw, determining that he will protect his family no matter what. Even if the world has gone mad, he will protect them. At a time like this, he's thankful that his family can all walk. No babies in the family. But he looks at his daughter, who is the youngest, and he knows she'll be the most vulnerable being only seven years old. His son, who is the oldest, is not yet a man. Eric will have to defend them all and he will fight to the death if he has to. It's a good thing he took the time to learn martial arts as well as spent time in the army. He's going to have to turn his children into soldiers, even his daughter. To teach them all to survive.

How's that for starters? I could have kept going, but I didn't want this post to be too long since I'm already quoting some of what you said.


4) Be able to post, at the bare minimum, once every few days. We all have busy lives, especially with the college semesters coming up, home lives, illnesses, and children, but I would like to keep the story going.


I can do that. Except for Fridays and Saturdays. I don't post on those days as they are bad days for me. But Sunday through Thursday I can do. However, I'll be honest. When I get sick, I don't post at all until I'm better since my writing turns pretty awful when I'm sick. If that happens while we RP, I'll give you a heads up. I'm mindful of my Role-Playing partners and I try to always inform them of important things. You will be treated with the same respect I have shown to others.

2) X-Men- Takes place after the first movie. Wolverine is on patrol when he spots the body of a young woman in the bushes inside the school grounds. He takes her to the medical ward where it is discovered that she’d been a prisoner of a local gang of mutant haters. She is blind, mute, and two months pregnant. Need someone able to play Logan as he is.


I've played Logan before elsewhere and I can play him again. Totally down for this one. Love Super-Heroes!

3) Boy and girl hook up at a party. Two months later, the girl finds him and announces her pregnancy. She tells him she won’t ask for his help, and that he’s off the hook. Three months go by before they see each other again. She is living on the streets. He convinces her to come live with him at his parents house. The story is about their journey in growing up, accepting responsibility, and finding each other emotionally.


The more I think about this one, the more I am intrigued. I have an idea of my own, but not sure if you'll agree. But it doesn't hurt to try. What if they both are mutants have super powers? And what if, to complicate things, they are hunted by mutant hunters?

4) Man comes to work for a husband and wife as body guard to their daughter; an up and coming singer. He’s to make sure she stays on task, and is well guarded, but also to report her daily activities. He notices she sneaks out at night, hangs with kids her own age, even sings in clubs. He reports it all, until he comes to realize the punishment they inflict upon her. Now, he wants to try to help save her by keeping her secrets, and helping her become emancipated from their control.


I'm open to this one. Sounds good. I already have the beginnings of a character in mind for the hired body guard. Not sure about the possible romance, but it depends on how old the daughter is and I am open to it. I'm thinking the body guard is a highly skilled martial artist and possibly an ex-marine. But that last part might make him a bit too old for the romantic angle.

[quote]2) Husband and wife, both bounty hunters, live a comfortable life, and they work cases together. (There may be pregnancy if both parties agree).

Sounds good. Do you, by any chance, have any more details on this one?

1) No real plot, but one can be created. My character owns a tavern in a small village. Her past will be revealed through her biography. Hoping for someone to either play the husband, or a traveler with whom romance can happen later. There will be no fantasy element.


What about a Super-Hero element? m

1) Street family (Group of people who call themselves a family, living on the streets).They will steal and kill to survive. the group is headed by a mother and father figure (this idea was taken from a Law and Order: SVU episode. If you know the one, you're awesome! If you don't, that's okay! It's not the same as in the show). During the summer months, they take to the city. When winter comes around, they squat in any abandoned building to keep from the elements. This can take place in the US or England.


In addition to your idea, maybe this takes place in a post apocalyptic type of setting, that way it's a dog eat dog world. What do you think?

3) An 18 year old girl is trekking through the frozen city streets in search of her father and his girlfriend. He’s agreed to meet her at an old familiar location, but must survive the war torn city streets. After the government dropped the bomb on its citizens, survivors have been scouring the post-apocalyptic city streets for signs of their loved one while hiding from the men seeking them. Three months pregnant and alone, she stumbles across a fellow survivor. Though her first instinct is to kill him, the discovery that he has a medical degree stops her in her tracks. Finding her loved ones, they leave the heart of the city to find a safer shelter.


I have rarely played anyone with medical knowledge. But if your okay with that, I'm game with this if you are.

4) The basic plot revolves around a home in the forest; away from society, it's hardships, and the toxic atmosphere it can present. There, they will build a new life. This can go two different ways; real world or fantasy. If fantasy: They have powers (elemental only) and are making a haven for people like them. If real world: It's for safety, anonymity, and a fresh start to live without constraints.


Totally down for the fantasy version of this one.

I look forward to discussing any further details with you. ^_^
