Being a librarian means sitting through record after record after record, deleting patrons who haven't checked a book out in over 5 years and doing so for 10 hours straight. #SendHelp

Rough day at work. Being a new supervisor to employees you used to be on equal level with is a challenge, esp. when they didn't like you much to begin with. Send hugs.

Hello all! My name is Aelin, at least here on the internet. It also happens to be one of the greatest badass main characters in a book series. You get some cookies if you know from what book series my name adheres. Now then, I've been role playing for nearly ten years. I started eons ago on Gaia before it went to hell with those gold boosters, and have been role playing on some private servers with a couple of friends off and on since then. I prefer text based role play to the tabletop stuff as I thoroughly enjoy writing and do it as a past time, and have even published a few independent poems. I have been on this site for two years but due to real life issues, I sort of dropped off of the face of the planet for a while. I just want to give the sincerest of apologies to the people I ghosted. Real life emergency and then losing my computer and overall real life being a pain, I haven't been able to really get back into role play. Hopefully now things are calm enough but I promise that if something pops up, I'll find a way to get back online in order to inform partners.

When it comes to role play style, I much prefer third person point of view. Honestly, I will not role play in any other perspective and would definitely prefer if you played in third person point of view as well. I typically write a minimum of 2 to 4 paragraphs and have a firm grasp on grammar. I would like if I could get a reply back that is at least one paragraph and legible. Text speak within a role play is a definite no-go. OOC text chat is perfectly fine but that's about the extent of it.

As far as pictures and descriptions of characters go, I do either, though if we do pictures, I'm more likely to use digital art rather than anime or real photos. I also prefer descriptions and back stories of characters to be revealed through the role play itself instead of by character skeleton. Makes it more fun that way but it is not a requirement. If you want us to do character skeletons, I will, I just prefer not to.

I do have some personal plots and generic pairings listed below. If any of them strike your fancy please contact me VIA PM only. This thread is for updates and bumping. I am willing to role play via PMs and Threads, in that order and I will not be doing IM or Email role play. Also, please not that I am very willing to double and will welcome any ideas you might have. The worst I can say is no right? So feel free to PM me if you have an idea that you want to do. Any role play can be PG-13 or 18+.

Plots

Stolen
Medieval Fantasy, Regency Fantasy, or Victorian Fantasy Setting
Surely there were no such things as faeries and goblins, or so she told herself. All of the ramblings of her Great Aunt was just superstitious nonsense. After the death of her parents, she was sent to live with the woman in a small village on the edge of a forest that was supposedly full of faeries and creatures of myth like elves and goblins. What she never anticipated, was that the stories were all true. After coming across an old circle of stones, strange things start happening, and finally, one night, she is whisked away, stolen from her bed and taken to a strange place, nothing at all like the human world she has always lived in. Not only has she been stolen, but she has been brought before the king of this mystical realm to marry him. (Somewhat inspired by Clare Dunkle's Hollow Kingdom)

The Emperor's Chosen
Medieval Fantasy Setting
The Emperor is a cruel man, obsessed with a prophecy that the dark thing that possesses him, must mate with a pure soul to create a being of complete power to rule the kingdoms with absolute authority. He finds such a creature, and keeps her locked away, until he is ready to marry her and claim her for his own. A resistance to the emperor's forces has taken hold, and the people are fighting back. One soldier hears of the emperor's bride to be, and manages to find the place where she is kept hidden. At first he means to kill her, but instead decides, that he doesn't have the heart to kill a girl who's only fault was being the Emperor's chosen bride. With no choices left, he takes her away from the place where she had remained hidden and brings her into the camp. At first, as a hostage, and prisoner of war, the two eventually find themselves wrapped in a passionate affair that might bring the Emperor's wrath upon them all. This will definitely be a more epic style romance with lots of factors playing into a complex relationship, and of course, plenty of side characters to help round out the plot.

Wicked
Modern Fantasy Setting
A human girl gets caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, and ends up being taken into a coven of vampires to be used as a blood slave. Upon arrival, the leader of the coven discovers her and is inexplicably drawn to her in a way he's never before been drawn to a human, and for once decides that no one can feed from her, but himself. As she grapples with her new life as a blood slave to a vampire, there's also the matter of why she's suddenly developing magical abilities she has never before possessed. As her relationship with her master shifts into something more, she soon realizes the reason why he was drawn to her in the first place. The basic idea for this role play is that she thinks she is just some normal human being when she is taken to be a blood slave to these vampires but the first time she is drank from, triggers a reaction that causes her true origins to be realized. I'm thinking demi-goddess or something like that, but it would be a lot of romance and action, we can work out the details via PM.

The Lost Princess
Medieval or Medieval Fantasy Setting
Two kingdoms once lived together in peace. The Crown Princess of one and the Crown Prince of the other were betrothed from the birth of the Princess to unite their kingdoms and rule as one. The prince grew into a fine youth and the princess, younger than he was only a child when rebellion overtook the kingdom of the Princess. She barely escaped with her life disappearing into the forests between the two kingdoms, never to be seen again. Eight years later, the Prince is near he border, helping to fend his kingdom against a raiding party when he comes across a small hovel deep in the heart of the forest, so hidden he only really stumbles upon it. There he finds a young woman of beauty, quiet and shy, and with a necklace around her neck that he had given to his betrothed when she had been just a child. Where it goes from there is up for discussion. (PG13 or Mature Content Possible)

The Girl In The Tower
Medieval Fantasy Setting
Sort of a riff on Rapunzel. A young woman has spent her entire life locked away in a tower. Her innocence and purity have granted an Alchemist all of the power he desires. Her pure blood giving him the perfect ingredient for all of his potions. She is used to nothing but isolation, and pain, until a prince happens upon her tower and uses the spell that causes her hair to grow like a rope. The two form a bond over several of his visits and then one day, he helps her escape from her tower, but the powerful sorcerer is not at all pleased to learn of his prisoner’s escape. Now they must fight the forces of evil that are rising against them or forever lose one another. (PG13 or Mature Content Possible)

Arranging for Peace
Medieval Setting
Warring Chieftains of two high powered, and bordered Clans of Scotland, decide that the bloodshed must end. What better way to end the feuding than by both families creating an alliance with each other through marriage. With war being so much part of the lives of all involved, can peace come of the forced union between them? (Likely Mature Content)

The Mail-Order Bride
Wild West Setting
She was disgraced. Not by her own fault but disgraced all the same. With nowhere to turn to, she answers an advertisement for a mail-order Bride in order to escape the past and the horrors of it. She becomes wife to a widower, but her secrets don’t say buried for long, especially when the horrors return to haunt her and threaten her new home and happiness with her husband, and his family. For doubling, we could add in the widower’s sister and create a plot for her. (Likely Mature Content)

"Is it really wrong for a man to look at a woman's ankle?" Caitriona asked curiously, frowning a little. "That's certainly a strange custom..." It did seem rather silly for a man to not look at an ankle. There wasn't anything very attractive about an ankle after all and her skirts weren't so hiked up you could see past the knee. Wincing, she set her foot down on the cool linoleum then bit her bottom lip as she glanced at Gilda.

"I'm honestly sorry for my appearance...I don't know how I came to be where I was...or...how I...ended up in a dress with so many rips and tears. There's quite a lot I don't recall..." she said with remorse, pouting a little as she tried to work past that fog clouding her memories with no avail. That was the most frustrating part about this entire ordeal honestly. She hated not knowing anything about herself, only what she'd been told. She certainly did not feel like a princess or future queen. She just felt like...well felt like a lost girl.
Cait's brow furrowed in confusion at the way he hesitated when discussing the fate of her parents. Before she could ask what he meant, the door opened and an older woman came in. Caitriona bit her bottom lip, giving her a soft, shy smile before looking down at her foot and then brushed her fingers through her unruly hair, so unkempt from her fall. She must look like a wild thing compared to those around her.

As the woman, Gilda, offered to examine her foot, she drew up the skirts of her ragged clothes, revealing the ankle in question. It was a little swollen and tender, but not as badly as it had been when she'd first fallen. "Thank you," she said, slowly lifting her foot up for the woman to look at. "I...I think it's a sprain at worst. Likely just a little twisted..." she suggested, not wanting to be a bother. She glanced at Aleksander then back at Gilda.

"It's all my fault I ended up hurt. It's lucky that His Highness was there to catch me," she said then felt herself blush as she looked at the woman as she examined her foot.
She looked at him, biting her bottom lip as he asked her several questions only to look at the maidservant asking about a tailor. As the woman curtsied and made off, Caitriona looked back at him. "A bath sounds nice...and something to wear...and of course the physician will look at my ankle...I don't think anything's broken but I do think I twisted it quite a bit...." she said then flushed, looking around again as a servant came down announcing that a bath was being prepared in a set of chambers, and that a physician was on his way.

As she departed, Cait looked about her, in awe of this place. "My home," she repeated then looked at him with a flush to her cheeks. "It's really lovely here," she admitted warmly and then saw several men and women properly dressed making their way through the entry hall. Courtiers, if she had to guess, though she didn't know where the word came from. Obviously though, they were wealthy lords and ladies by the state of their outfits. They all seemed to be going out to the gardens or something but a few women did pause, turn and glance at her in Aleksander's arms but then hurried off before asking questions.

"Is this place always so busy Aleksander?" she asked, looking at him again. It was a little overwhelming to be surrounded by so many people, but with such a large palace, it was little wonder that there would be so many people living in it.
As he announced who she was, there was a gasp from several of the servants present, a tittering of whispered voices, some wondering if the King was mad for such a thing, though they surely said nothing to his face. An older woman in servant's garb was the one to set things in motion, ordering servants to quickly air out a fine guest chamber for her, while another went to fetch a physician. The exterior of the grand palace was lovely but inside was truly exquisite and Caitriona looked at the high ceilings and beautiful tapestries with awe, her mouth even parting slightly, gaping at the massive artwork and architecture. It was unlike anything she'd ever seen before.

Her gaze moved back to the stern faced Aleksander. "It's so beautiful," she said then looked back around again, another servant coming up as the entire place seemed to be in uproar over the king's return and the appearance of the girl he held in his arms.

"Your highness...perhaps I should have someone send for a tailor...to get her as quickly as possible into more...proper clothing?" the woman mused while others rushed to the kitchens in order to start heating buckets of water for a fine bath. Caitriona looked down at her appearance. She did look rather out of sorts compared to the rest of the palace. Even the servants were far better dressed than she was. the thought made her blush in embarrassment. What they must think of her, she thought, looking back at Aleksander for his answer.
