I disagree. Your personal preference for one writer over another, does not change the fact that both may be good at what they do. Skill is not subjective.

Bio

I think I was probably a cat in another lifetime. I don't like noise, I don't like bright lights, and I don't even particularly like people, though there are one or two exceptions to that last one. What I do like are warm places, good books, hot drinks, and pleasant conundrums, you know the sort that might occupy a longish drive with interesting thinking. Antepenultimately, I enjoy words of a sesquipedalian nature, though only as a veridical aesthete; I don’t think these words have much of a place in the writing I’ll be doing on this forum. They mess with the flow of the prose if you catch my meaning. Supereminently, I’ll write with anyone that has a strong voice and a good grasp of the English language, and while I won't promise not to bite, I will swear I've had all my shots, so pm me if you've got any clever ideas or inchoate notions.

Thanks for your interest but I'm closing this topic. It's been filled.


It started as an itch between my shoulder blades that just kept growing and growing and growing until it had a fourteen-foot span and feathers. I was twelve. I had mutated. All of the sudden, I found myself living in the shadows of the City of Light.

The City of Light




The year is 2216 and in the last few decades, the human genome has seen an unprecedented number of mutations due to higher concentrations of radioactive particles in the atmosphere worldwide, a consequence of using nuclear weapons in the war now commonly known as the Last World War. These Deviants are regarded with suspicion and fear by the majority of the populace due to their unique abilities. The most unfortunate of their number live in government-controlled concentration camps, but there are rumored to be several in hiding. Citizens of the International Cooperation Conglomerate Empire are encouraged to keep their eyes out and inform authorities should they discover any Deviants hidden among them.

Our characters start as a second group starts coming to power. The ICC is the government pushing for the registration and segregation of deviants into concentration type camps, fueled by the fear average citizens feel towards people with greater powers, but unknown to them, an underground resistance of deviants is planning to strike back. This group would be comprised of mutants hiding within the City of Light. They'd be angry, fed up with being mistreated by law enforcement and others who know that the legal system would never stand up for a deviant. Many of them, including their charismatic leader, have started preaching about Darwin's Theory of Evolution, claiming that because deviants are more evolved humans they should not only control the government, but should also cull the less evolved population. War is on the horizon and our characters will either join a side or work to change the direction the two groups are headed in.

This story is set in a futuristic dystopia in which mutated humans, or Deviants, live as second class citizens. I'm looking to explore questions like: What would it be like to live as a minority in a world that is almost completely against you? What dangers would someone in this minority face? What does it mean to be human? Should you use your powers for good even when those you'd be saving largely despise you because of them? I'm looking for honest story telling, a no-holds-barred exploration into this world. It should be real and gritty and emotionally wrenching.




۞ 18+ only. Mature themes will be present due to the gritty nature of this setting. Turn back now if you're looking for neatly wrapped happy endings.

۞ Romance is encouraged, but will not be the driving point of this story. Please note that my character concept is for a female and that I am not into rping same sex romance.

۞ Advanced writers only. I'm looking for a partner with a strong voice who is willing to regularly produce detailed posts of whatever length is necessary for the story in that given moment.

۞ If you are interested in writing this story with me, please PM me your character concept, your ideas for plot direction, and a little something about yourself.
That sounds like good advice. Haha

I'm teaching a high school band camp this week because I need the rent money, but I promise I'll have a post up this weekend. Probably Sunday evening.
Actually, I've been avoiding disc so I don't have to explain to my wow friends why I bailed right before Tomb of Sargeras opened...
I'm not objecting. Honestly I was starting to worry about this one because no ones said anything in the OOC recently.
