It was amazing just how easy it was to be unrecognizable. Leah simply had to chop her hair off and start slouching. She didn't even get the whole hey, has anyone ever told you that you look like...? Maybe she wasn't so unrecognizable: maybe it was just that no one wanted to say anything. Which was nice- she really, really didn't want the attention. She had never wanted it in the first place, and with her brother's death...
In all honesty, she never really went out, anyways. So it was probably more that there was never an opportunity for someone to realise who she was and bring it up. And, you know, she wasn't exactly proud of her last public moment, because punching one of your teammates was generally frowned upon, even if it had turned out all right in the end. So the idea that people might have perhaps not wanted to comment in case she decided to punch them was a defensible one.
She had far too much time on her hands and not enough that she wanted to do with it, which led to too much thinking.
Okay, so she did go out often enough. This, however, was not the kind of bar you went to because you wanted to find new friends. People made small talk, but not much more unless they knew each other. Even the staff made no comment about how much you were or were not drinking that night. (Sometimes she just wanted to sit and watch everything.)
...thunder storms expected to surface in the late evening hours. That's all we have for the week ahead, back to you, Janine.
Thank you, Mark. Coming up, next Thursday marks the one year anniversary of the death of one of the world's most celebrated heroes. Information on...
Leah tuned it out.
Another drink was on her table before she knew it. "On the house."
Well, looks like someone recognized her after all.
So I'm (no longer) new to this site, and I've been roleplaying for over a decade now, and writing for longer. I have a number of ideas, but I wasn't getting any bites on the other website I use, so I figure I'd try my luck here.
I try my best to match what my partner is bringing to the table in terms of post sizes.
My posting rate could potentially be anywhere from once a week to more than once a day. Please let me know what posting rate you tend to enjoy and I'll let you know if I can go along with it at current time.
I totally understand getting anxious about posting or feeling flaky. As long as you're not a jerk I won't hold it against you.
My background is in theatre acting, so I really love character driven stories and the twists and turns that tend to go along with them.
I typically play female characters. I am not picky about what you choose to play.
I usually tend towards darker stories, but it depends on the characters and situations.
I do like mature and adult content; however I am also fine if this never comes up in story, or if you would prefer fade to black.
As a related side note- I recently finished paramedic school, so there isn't much in the way of grit or gore that will throw me off.
I am quite flexible in general, so if you have something that's vaguely similar to something I have in here, or you think based on what I have listed here I might like it, let me know!

He said pick a virtue. I chose defiance. You can now see why He and I have a problem.
I enjoyed the Netflix movie Bright and would love to work out something in a similar setting!
I've been working my way through the Marvel Netflix series and found this character from Daredevil interesting. Most intriguing to me is his co-creator's description of him: “The Punisher is a thin character on his own merits, but that allows for a lot of interpretations and different angles of approach.”
I have no background beyond what I've seen in the Netflix Daredevil and Punisher series, but if someone has ever wanted to play the Punisher or a similar character and has any ideas, I'm all ears. I'd like to play something opposite, although I'm not quite sure what that is yet- there are a lot of ways it could go.
and the rest in alphabetical order
We were lovers, once. Funny how quickly things change; you left one night and I thought I would never see you again. Funny how quickly things change now that you need my help, because here you are.
I'm thinking of some kind of fantasy (D&D style) setting for this one. No particulars, though. Maybe we were adventurers? Maybe you cut through town needing my help with something, and now you're crawling back for help again?
For once let's have the barbarian suitor(-to-be) stuck trying to work out societal mores in a noble house instead of the bride being whisked away.
So bouncing off my last idea of superhero twins, I'm interested in playing a disgraced superhero. Maybe she failed to save someone, maybe she killed someone; whatever it was, it was assumed (rightly or wrongly) that she would be vilified, and chose to step out of the public eye. Now, I guess you could say she's washed up- whether this is the story of a triumphant comeback, a spiral even further down, or simply a slice of life is up for discussion. In any case, I definitely picture this being somewhat darker of a story.
Well, I don't know how much interest there will be in a Disney Junior show. I don't know a ton about it, but I watch it when I babysit my niece and if anyone is interested I'll look more into it.
I like the Terminator films, and I recently saw Terminator: Genisys and loved it. I don't want to use the characters from the franchise, but I would love to do something similar. I would be fine with using same companies, same premise, etc.
There's a bad guy bar (like the one in Deadpool). Now, The Government allows them to remain in service, provided that they can use resources as they would like. They don't usually need anything, but now is one of those times. I have a very specific idea for the type of hitwoman I'd like to play.
to play a brilliant detective- no one knows it's because she's psychic. I'm thinking she's just starting out in her career, and maybe to add problems- she's a Cassandra-esque sort of psychic. No one listens until it's too late. Whether that's a curse or merely an organizational problem is yet to be determined. I'm thinking this could actually have a lot of comedy in it as well.
Something needs to be brought in to, or out of, a place, but of course, not all is what it seems. No specific ideas for this one; I just like the premise.
I'm interested in examining the relationship between [what would typically be] a villain and their sidekick (which I would like to play). From what I've seen, it's not all that unusual for the sidekick to be maltreated for incidents that wouldn't warrant a reaction from anyone else; conversely, they can also often get away with things that would get anyone else killed (such as deliberately trying to undermine plans). And what about those moments where they seem to be on the exact wrong side for their beliefs? I want to look at all the whys.
I'm not particular about setting, but I don't want these characters reduced to evil bad guys. They're the heroes of their own story, even if their beliefs go against the grain and their methods sometimes questionable.
Don't Walk in the Winter Woods
Savage Worlds (barely)
horror- especially terrible B horror movies
the supernatural (vampires, werewolves, witches, etc.)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
The Walking Dead
a.k.a. anything I've seen lately that I think would be fun to base a role play on
Marvel- any of their Netflix series
(Female) adventurer x the prince
Cop x criminal (shortly after the apocalypse begins)
Mentor x mentee (maybe in some kind of special ops/law enforcement capacity)

[list][*]I like most genres.
[*]But I really love superheroes, apparently.
[*]I'm big on character driven stories and all the twists and turns that come from that.
[*]I tend towards darker, grittier stories, or lighter stories with liberal amounts of dark humour. Thanks to paramedic school, there is very little you can do that will throw me off.

[*]I try to post at least once per week, typically managing at least once a day. My record length between posts is roughly a month.
[*]I reuse my characters, settings, and plot points with different people. It's fun to see the little changes that come up in the same character.
