In this essay I hope to answer the age-old question: do cats aim to step on and put all their weight on your boob in an act of malice, or is it simple lack of knowledge?

Bio

Ignoring life for RP like:



Welcome!
This is my bio, where you will find some information on me and what I like to roleplay. You will not find any recipes, nefarious schemes, or insecurities, even though I have a plethora of all those things - as well as a combination of some, like my recipe for homemade insecurity pie. Delicious, tangy insecurity pie.

Pies aside, I'm AllOurPrettySongs. That's a long username that holds absolutely no deep meaning to me, but is simply part of the chorus to a Nirvana song I was listening to when I created my account. You can call me Songs, or perhaps Pretty, because that's the easiest way for me to get a compliment. I don't like Piña Colada, or getting caught in the rain. As far as I can tell, I don't have half a brain. But then if I did, I probably wouldn't know. What I do like is music and movies; if you talk to me about old rock/alternative music, I will be your best friend forever, whether you want that or not. The same goes for movies. If you talk to me about eighties horror, stupid horror we can laugh about (sometimes the lines blur), psychological thrillers, or comedies (and most everything else that I can't be bothered to list), I will never leave your side.

So, roleplay. Why did I take so long to get to the main reason we're all here? Because I don't get to talk about myself a lot. It's my time to shine, dammit. Anyway, roleplay. What do I like? What don't I like? Well:

+ Slice of Life! Life of Slice! Of Slice Life! I hope I'm getting my point across. Slice of Life is my thing, and I RP exclusively MxM pairings. Does that mean I can't play other gender and sexuality side-characters? No. No, no. I can do that. No worries. It's just that my main will always be a homosexual male. Does Slice of Life mean that I want fluff all the time? That's another no, because it's unrealistic. There is sadness and conflict in life, as well as other unpleasant emotions and situations. But I don't want something that is really dreary and depressing, because I have my actual life for that. A different way of putting it would be that I enjoy realism, but a reality that could be found in a romantic movie. There's drama, there's conflict, but there's a big dose of sweetness, too.

This is not to say that I don't enjoy a cliché or two. My personal favourite is undoubtedly the Denied Attraction.
"Like them? I can't stand them!" Character A sputters, sweating nervously. "Where did you get that completely insane and crazy idea that I don't loathe them at a molecular level?!"

Ah yeah, that's some good freshly squeezed cliché.

What don't I like? How many more question marks can I get in this bio? Well:

+ Smutty RPs, or any RPs that involve smut. No touchy. Our characters can be in love and hold hands and and whatever it is couples do (shop for lawn gnomes together?), but anything other than that is a no-no.

+ Sci-fi. Don't like it, don't really understand it, can't get into it. I will not be partaking.
+ Medieval. Can't get into it and I'm not good at writing it.
+ Historical. Which is similar to Medieval, I suppose. Same reasons as to why I don't do it. It can be a bit of a grey area, however, as it depends on what you class as historical. I love modern settings, and I classify back to the twenties onwards as modern, but I guess it could be classified as historical? Kinda? Probably not really.

+ Fantasy. Again, another grey area. I'm fine with elements of fantasy, but just straight up fantasy is not for me. Same goes for horror. You want to set it in a terrifying place full of terrifying nightmares? Awesome, that sounds fun. But I want romance in there. How? I don't know. We can put our imagination craniums together and come up with something!

+ Along similar lines: Supernatural. Supernatural elements are fine (ghosts, vampires, werewolves, etc.), but there has to be that romance. Gotta get that romance, people. Just inject it directly into my vein.

What are my rules? Well:

+ As I said up above, I don't do smut. Sorry, my friends.
+ I only RP with people who are eighteen and over, as I fall into that bracket.

+ I write a minimum of four paragraphs. I can go many more if I am inspired and also not on my mobile. I'm sorry if that number fluctuates, but as I said, I'm sometimes on mobile and my poor thumbs cannot handle it. Plus, replies tend to look bigger than they actually are on mobile, so I might think that I've written more than I actually have if I don't look at the character count.

+ Please be able to write just as much as me! If you'd like to write more, then that's great. I would love to read your clever words.
+ Spelling and grammar. Everyone makes mistakes - I make them, you make them (probably?), we all make them. I'd just like it if you could keep the mistakes to a minimum, and I'll do just the same for you!

+ If you don't like the RP, please tell me. We can try and fix it! If you still don't like it, there's no hard feelings. I really hope that you find a plot you enjoy a lot more! Along the same lines, if you don't like how I write, that's okay. Sometimes styles don't mesh well. I'll wish you luck in finding someone who compliments your own writing better!

+ I'm frequently online but may not be able to reply every time I am. Aside from real life commitments, I'm not always in the mood to write, or may be without my muse for a while. I try to keep up the posting as much as I can, though! And I will tell you when I know that I'm going to be away for a long period.

+ OOC chat is fun, and I like it. If you don't really want to talk to me, that's okay, but I might be a bit sad about that. </3
Really though, I'd love it if we could be friends.

I think that's about it! Likely not, this bio will never be left as is. I am never satisfied.
But if you like what you see here now, why not send me a message and we could maybe roleplay? Or even just have a chat. :3

Hey, everyone!

Will I ever stop making interest checks based around movies and actually have an original idea? Probably not, so here’s another movie-based idea, and this time it’s Tom Hanks’ Splash. Oh yeah, we’re going back to the corny era of cinema. The best era.

If you haven’t seen the film, it’s a very basic premise: a man unknowingly meets a mermaid after she saves him from drowning. They fall in love and he ignores a lot of her idiosyncrasies because, hey, love. All the while, the mermaid is hunted by an obsessed weirdo who will stop at nothing to expose their existence.

It’s weird and it’s goofy but I dig it, and I’d love to do an MxM version with myself playing the human. We can follow the basic storyline of the movie, we can take it in our own direction, we can do whatever! Imagination!

Now, I don't have many rules, but these are two absolutely vital and non-negotioanable ones: My partners must be 18+, and there will be absolutely no smut in the story. And when I say absolutely no smut, I mean not even fade to black, I mean not even allusions. I am not interested. I do cute stuff with characters and their relationships but that's it.

Very serious stuff, wow. For the less serious!
I’m looking for a more casual pace than I’ve had in the past. I’ve been an advanced writer for ages but other commitments and a tendency towards creative burnout has made me reconsider the quantity. Things like establishing posts will be longer, but the rest I’m hoping for a lighter volume. I’ll still give you plenty to work with, though!

I write via PMs exclusively and adore OOC chat. My timezone will likely be off from yours as I’m from the land down under. Like I said, I have commitments that are still in full swing even with everything going on, so my reply rate may be wonky. Also, sometimes I just don’t have the muse for writing. I will always let you know if it’s going to be a longer period of time!

Annnddd, that’s about it? I guess? Send me a PM or reply here if you’re interested, and if you have any ideas about where this could go, then lemme know ~

Somebody’s gotta love this movie too, c’mon!
bringin this one back!

Hey, everyone!

So, I know that In Time is an old movie now, but I’ve been thinking of doing an RP based on it for ages, so I thought, I better stop ... wasting time *finger guns*

Anyway, if you haven’t seen the movie, it’s about a futuristic society in which people stop ageing at twenty-five. Once they hit that age, their clock activates (the clock is formatted as years/weeks/days/minutes/seconds and glows on their forearm) and they only have a year until they ‘time out’ - i.e. die. People must work in order to gain time, therefore it has become the universal currency.

The world is separated into zones: the time-rich live luxuriously and can essentially be immortal. The time-poor live in bad conditions and often don’t have more than a couple of days at a time, some even living by a few hours between paycheques. Timekeepers are the police in this society.

So! As for plot, I don’t really have anything concrete. Maybe a Timekeeper gets stuck in a poor zone and has to be escorted by a resident there, perhaps in exchange for leniency - chaos and romance ensue (I like this one and would prefer to play the resident!)
Maybe a time rich and time poor person fall in love, creating big problems. Maybe it’s a vigilante duo who seek to bring down the totalitarian state.
All I know is that it’s gonna be MxM and there’s going to be romance involved! If you have any ideas, please bring them on over.

Now, I don't have many rules, but these are two absolutely vital and non-negotioanable ones: My partners must be 18+, and there will be absolutely no smut in the story. And when I say absolutely no smut, I mean not even fade to black, I mean not even allusions. I am not interested. I do cute stuff with characters and their relationships but that's it.
