Status as of November 7 2018: Partner Found
I am looking for a long-term writing partner for the following RP concept. I have intentionally left quite a few details open-ended for us to decide together.
The RP follows two people (our characters) who find themselves spending a lot of time together playing DIVR (Directly Interfaced Virtual Reality, think Sword Art Online tech) games. The general themes of the RP are exploring, meeting people / each other, and the characters getting into and out of sticky situations. The premise opens up many specific possibilities: the players playing through a game with a storyline; the players entering a competition; the players in "real" life (this part could be especially interesting); the players becoming streamers (stream chat could be fun to RP); the players playing an RP game (2 layers of RP could be silly enough to enjoy for a bit); and the players getting "married" in a game for pragmatic purposes. Because the characters can switch games at will we can get a wide variety of plots in one long RP. We can also make additional characters if we feel like it.
I imagine the RP starting with the characters meeting each other in an open world game. They decide to party together and things move forward from there.
Now, on to expectations.
What to expect from meAge
Male with a flexible age of 23. Chill. Generally a good guy. Always looking for a good challenge.Writing Level
I put a lot of effort into each of my posts. I proofread thoroughly, I world-build carefully, and I do my best to make sure my partner has something to work with. I'm pretty new to RP, though, so all things considered I'm somewhere between casual and advanced.
My schedule varies quite a bit. Sometimes I can return 5 paragraphs of IC within a day. Other times I can't write anything for a full week. On average you can expect about 1-2 paragraphs per day that I am not waiting for a reply.
My preferred writing styles are screenplay (third-person present tense) followed by traditional (third-person past tense). Let me know which you prefer.OOC Chat
I can settle for RPGuild PM but better / faster OOC chat means better / faster posts (when applicable). I am very interested in using Discord for messaging. I would also like to use Discord for voice chat to do deep world building / long collaborations but I understand that some people aren't comfortable using voice chat or do not have a microphone.Boundaries
- As far as IC is concerned I fade to black to keep the story plot-focused. If a fade happens we will need to discuss it in OOC to get a general sense of what happens to be on the same page going forward. I can probably be persuaded to write it out IC-style in a separate PM as long as it doesn't interfere too much with our other writing.
- If it normally involves a toilet I don't want to figure it out anywhere.
- My furry limit is ears and a tail. I generally do not play anything except human.
- This is lighthearted so extreme cruelty and similarly major crimes against other people are expected to not show up in IC. Considering the characters are playing video games "violence" and "killing" are probably going to be pretty common. They are "exceptions".
What I expect from youAge
18+, preferably 20+ (I'm not going to write anything involving romance with a minor and I prefer writing with adults in general.)Sex
Female (I am aware the characters are not us but I'm still not comfortable with a man being on the other end of an RP with romance.)Character
Female. 18+. Not a terrible person. Have fun making what you want.Writing Level
I prefer quality to quantity/speed. If you are writing enough to move the plot forward and build the world a bit things will work out. If you are not I will poke you about it. That said I am not a grammar / spelling cop. If you give your posts a once-over before you hit send they will probably be good enough. I will nudge you if anything bugs me.OOC Chat
Once again RPGuild PM is acceptable but any amount of Discord is a huge plus.Boundaries
Let me know.
Hopefully that's enough for now. If you are interested let me know in a PM or with a reply that contains an @ mention.
