Nothing like going to bed at 8:30 pm and being up at ridiculous o'clock in the morning... ^^; I've already had 2 leisurely cups of coffee and am about to make a third.


Hey, Light the Dark here. I'm a late-twenties slightly crazy/somewhat obsessed with reading and writing/cute things loving/fantasy fan woman, with an apparent fondness for massive run-on sentences.

My current obsessions are Miraculous Ladybug, Moana, Wonder Woman, Star Wars, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Tamora Pierce, Disney, and re-told fairy-tales. (Though, I'll admit, the last three are pretty much always an obsession.)

I like my roleplays with a little (or a lot) of romance: I'm a sucker for fluff and the 'falling in love' sort of romances in RPs. And while I don't mind drama or angst, I like the end of the RP to at least be a bittersweet or happy-for-now ending.


What do you call a cute door?

I'm not looking for 'heavy' themes right now, however.
a little bump
Posting this on the off-chance I can find someone who wants to gm a 1x1.

I've had partners in the past who have GMed a story for us, and I've enjoyed it quite a bit. Most of my current RPs - awesome as they are - are much more balanced or tipped in favor of me leading the story. I'd like to have another RP, but right now I don't want the stress of leading the plot.

Who I'm looking for:Anyone who is casual/high-casual who wants to RP with me is more than welcome to see if we click. ^^ I don't bite... hard. I'm looking for someone to play a male or female character to my female.
I'm also looking for someone to take charge of the plot once we start RPing. I sincerely want someone to GM this RP.
I'm much more interested in quality over quantity - I like depth in character development. A 5 paragraph post that rambles and isn't well written won't hold my attention like a couple paragraphs with insight into your character's thoughts and development.

Types of RPs I'm interested in: While romance typically doesn't have to be the main point of the RP, it is an important part of an RP for me. Right now, however, I am in the mood for something with heavy romance. I tend to be drawn to fantasy RPs - more 'traditional' ones rather than urban/modern fantasy - the most, though if you have a really good idea for a non-fantasy, I'd be open to hearing it.
I have a bit of a craving for something dark and gothic-y with heavy romance.

Other information: I'm sure there are many things I am missing at the moment, but for now this will do until I update things. I'm a mid-twenties-something female, for those who like to know the age of their partners.

If you might be interested, send me a PM!

@Mahz There seems to be a bug here.

Instead of when the post was created under the post title, it's showing the last time someone posted. It's doing this in the 1x1 RP and intck tabs. ...actually, it seems to be doing it all the Roleplaying subforums. It isn't doing it in News or Off-Topic though.
An age range tag of sorts might be better. For example 'Teen' 'Young Adult' 'Adult'. Then again, we might have the problem of what the 'Adult' tag can mean. Still, an age range tag could also be used for giving a general sense of the age of the characters in the RP.

I do agree though that it has lost its meaning - or, rather, its meaning is a bit of a grey area. The official description of '18+' is 'Involves adult themes'. Depending on how you interpret that, it's the difference between an 'R' rated movie and a 'XXX' one.

I think it's an interesting issue, and love to see some more discussion on it.
What do you use the 18+ tag for?

When seeing that tag, what do you think it means?

Personally, when I mention 18+, I don't mean a smut-fest of an RP. I mean that there is potential for darker themes, adult situations*, and potential (not guaranteed) 'romance' scenes. I also use it to filterer out under-18 individuals, because I'm not comfortable playing in a 1x1 RP with someone under the age of 18.

Others, however, do use the 18+ tag for plots that are more explicitly 'romantic' in nature.

Should there be two separate tags? Or should both uses fall under the same tag?

*damn taxes.

A simpler way to do that would be to just make statuses expire so that after a week they get purged

I'm opposed to that idea. I know some people use their status as a quick 'I'm going to be gone for a while', just in case they missed telling any of their partners. It makes sense for it not to delete/expire after a short amount of time.

Unless you're talking about non-current statuses.
