An Alchemist's Substitutes
Alchemy is the science of understanding matter and the transfusion of one into another. Using their knowledge they can turn lead into silver, make wonderous potions beyond understanding, and discover new elements previously undiscovered. But the real goal of an alchemist has always been to discover the recipe for the mythical philosopher's stone, said to create miracles and matter out of nothing, completely ignoring the laws of equivalent exchange.
An alchemist is an essential part of any respectful city, so after the previous ones' sudden and mysterious disappearance the position is left open. Will you be able to rise to the cause, and solve the mysteries of the legendary philosophers stone whilst also running a business- with a partner? People need their elixirs after all.
Greetings and salutations, I'm Periodity! After some consideration, I thought to reach out to try and find an RP partner with a similar interest in the fantasy genre. The idea above is essentially a spin on the zero-to-hero formula where two people go from nobodies to alchemical geniuses, mostly focusing on the journey there. I should also note that this idea is sort of inspired by Fullmetal Alchemist, so if you've watched it, or at least heard of it that's a plus! This idea is not fleshed out all the way, and that is simply the fact that I want my partner's input to make it -our- story!
-I'm a fantasy buff, playing DnD and enjoying that sort of media but I also love steampunk.
-I am not a native English speaker, but I am quite confident in my writing ability. However, I do make grammatical mistakes at times (but I try to avoid them as much as possible) so bear with me.
-I love character dynamics, and how it changes as characters grow together which is what I want to focus on. That is not to say other aspects of worldbuilding are important too as the two as intertwined, but that is what I enjoy writing the most.
-I don't write explicit settings, I am simply not confident or comfortable writing it!
-One to two paragraphs is my standard for responses, but it can go up to as high as five if it calls for it.
-Other interests include (but are not limited to):
Isekai's (and anime in general hah)
The legend of Zelda
What I'd like to see in my partner
-It goes without saying, but be nice!
-Any interest in the fantasy/steampunk genre or my interests is a plus!
-A good grasp of the English language.
Grammatical errors are of course okay, I just expect you to put in some effort to minimize them. The same goes for me!
I'm very open to hearing and discussing ideas, and I love when my partner thinks of something that I would've never thought of. And for example, if something is unclear in my responses don't even sweat about asking me about it! This one is one of the more important things I ask for in a partner.
Two or three each week is appreciated, but I understand that's a bit optimistic so one or two each week is also fine.
-Write more than one sentence!
This is a casual interest check so you're not expected to write half a book for each response, but one to two paragraphs is the minimum, (if not for some specific reason which we both agree on).
for a week without giving a heads-up first. Life happens of course, but a simple "Hey, I won't be able to respond for a week" is enough to let me know that you're still interested.
-If you're losing interest, or simply don't want to continue, just tell me! I know writing a story can get stale, and taking a break or quitting is absolutely understandable but please don't just ghost. Again, a simple heads-up is enough.
I'd like to imagine that is all! If you're interested in this, don't be afraid to send me a PM. I should note that I like to keep my RPs in PMs only. Thanks for reading!
(This post will be up until someone fills the spot, so if you're seeing this, nobody has gotten it yet!)
