Well it's been a while since I've searched here, it looks like most people want 18+ and I don't do that, but I never left. I sorta had a period where getting myself to reply was torture because all I felt like doing was sleeping, and I have to confess that made me lazy about it. Now a good chunk of roleplays have ended and I'd still like some.

At the moment I do favour some things over others. I'd love something with gods (traditional or OCs)or just something high fantasy.

Now I have some 'base' plots (they're old and have been shared before but I'm keeping most of them for the sake of being able to provide something) they're more foundation than a complete house, but I'll get to those later. First I'll go over some rules/things you ought to know. Then I'll touch on some characters and fandoms I'm fond of, I'll also throw in a list of just some general elements I like. And if I get those done and feel like it I'll share some of my children in case you see someone who'd work well for what you want.

Rules/ not actually rules
1. Am a he/him, will almost always play a he/him. Am also 29, let's try and not make me any more creepy than I already am.
2. I try to reply consistently, but life come first, and it's really easy to exhaust me. You can nudge me if you want.
3.I prefer longer replies to shorter ones. Mine average around 3-4 paragraphs, you don't have to match that but please do give me something to work with.
4. There are a lot of things I'm willing to handle in a roleplay, sexual violence is not one of them. I know, I know, I can be rude about this, and shouldn't, but I may anyway, trying to be nice about it has just gotten me trampled over. This subject in any context is an absolute deal breaker.
5. No smut...In case you didn't get that.
6. I don't like ditching. Too busy? Lost interest? Mourning the loss of a furbaby? Please tell me, I wont eat you.
7. I don't typically like doing plot heavy roleplays, I'm good with a general idea and starting place and just seeing where it goes from there. I love, love , LOVE relationship and character development and world building.
8. I prefer to design and draw my OCs myself, don't like that? Well I guess we hit a speed bump, I don't care what kind of face claim you want to use, or if you want to use one at all, just remember you're not going to get a photo for a face claim here.
9. I don't like lots of fluff. Unless it's on bunnies. Sorry. I like to have a nice balance of drama and fun but you cannot keep my attention with sickly sweet characters and plots.
10. This just exists to make it an even number.

Things I love (also these don't necessarily have to be stuffed together)
-Dragons
-Mythology (particularly pre-established)
-Demons (you'll have to ask about my ridiculous demon guide)
-Philosophy (sounds weird I know, but want to shove some thoughtful things into the plots? I'm good with that, I do it all the time)
-High fantasy
-Romance (didn't used to, now I do)
-Vampires
-Werewolves
-Faeries
-Magic
-Forbidden romance
-Any other number of mythological creatures or gods
-Horror
-Reincarnation
-History when I can
-Creepy asylums
-Creepy ruins
-Have I said creepy enough in this thread yet? Creepy creepy creepy...OK it's out of mys system now

So here I have a short list of characters I do or am willing to play, don't have much experience with all of them, so keep that in mind, this will be followed by a general list of fandoms I love
-Loki (MCU) (after yet another dream, one that made .6% more sense than the usually do)
-Jeff the killer (I could say it again...........I have no shame, just note I'm working on a rewrite that I'll probably reference a lot)
-Beyond Birthday (I am absolutely confident that 110% of everyone knows who that is)
-Hades (wasn't sure if I should put this here or in OCs TBH XD)
Tyr (same deal as with Hades but hey whatever)
And I don't particularly have characters in mind I just figure if I want to I can come up with one, so here are the general fandoms
-Amnesia (TDD)
-Death Note in general (anime, manga, movies, TV drama, one shots, ect, there isn't much about DN that I don't know)
-Until Dawn
-Labyrinth (you know what I mean)
-Legend of Zelda (particularly Twilight Princess or BOTW)

The uh....plots, yeah we'll call them plots, are below, but feel free to add, take away, or change any details.

The old gods had been worshiped unceasingly for centuries, that was until humans with their technology and new ideas began to think they didn't need the gods. Worship came less and less and with it the gods' power, until they were nearly completely forgotten. Though their numbers were small and their powers dwindling, they will fight to regain it, even literally.

The Key
During a war between the god the goddess of life, was severely wounded forcing her into a deep sleep. To protect her in her vulnerable state she was placed in a hidden tomb locked with a special key to await the day she reawakens. That key was hidden away and no one any longer remembers where. However the time has come for her to be awaken, and it's said that the one, or ones, who wake her will have great power at their disposal. As such many people are in search for the key, good, evil, selfish, and otherwise. As it happens some people are willing to share that power and find teaming up to benefit them. Two such people may do just that.

The Spirits' Hand
The world is threatened by war and dark energy. The spirits know this and know if it isn't stopped soon all life will be eradicated. So they upon a chose few individuals they bestow their power for creation in the hopes that the damage can be reversed and those responsible stopped. (Is based on a WIP novel. So lots to say about this in a discussion).

Alright now it is coming to a close, I'm gonna just list a few of my babies and a bit about them, but if you aren't interested you can stop here, this isn't terribly important.
In no particular order
Blaze- Likes guns, action movies, can be such a manipulative asshat but can usually smooth talk his way out of trouble. Also his parents once attempted to have him exorcised, they don't exactly see eye to eye religion wise....
Cadence- Half elf, is very smol and angry, trying not to go back to being a thief, has the most bizarre 'ability' to get advice from a dead ancestor, and never gives the same name to two people.
Vittore Airo- Vampire, has a weird obsession with coffee, very romantic, has an enormous collection of first edition books, no one knows the real colour of his hair, and is sometimes very sexually confused.
Cian Murray- Also a vampire, a very old vampire, but still has yet to actually grow up, can't pass for an adult? No problem vampires have awesome powers. Is absolutely mortified of death, and has a terrible memory.
Frænir- A dragon, can take human form but really doesn't get them, loves warm, is usually an asshat to most people, but gets very attached to things and people.
I'm kinda slapping myself because I didn't think of this plot right away...then again I've tried to get it going multiple times with poor results so maybe the overall idea isn't so great in execution. Anyway on with the plot
I'm not gonna fancy up how I describe it, it's a bout two lovers cursed by a jealous witch to never find happiness together. They're continuously reincarnated only to meet a tragic end and have to find each other all over again.
I've still got this plot forming but I wanted to get at least the general idea out so I wouldn't completely forget it over night.
It's a love between a thief and princess, or not a princess honestly I don't care too much what you want to play I just have the vague idea in my head about a secret love between a thief and someone higher status that he meets because he was doing a shit job at robbing their house. I'll expand on it tomorrow, probably.
Hey it turns out 99% of the plots I've ever come up with have been typed out somewhere, or written...Whatever I think I'm just going to have to go through notebooks and threads and see what I can find. In the meantime I do remember being slightly fond of this idea.

Never stray from the old road in the woods, they say. Elves live in them. Elves that bring misfortune to anyone that happens upon them. Belle has lived a life full of hardships. One day while on an errand that took her through the woods she came across a an injured man. Out of pity she took him in and nurse him back to health only to learn that he was one of the elves she had been warned about. He promised her that for helping him she would be rewarded. Sure enough her fortunes begin to improve, but at the expense of all those around her.

I realize that I gave both characters a gender and...I am partial to the character listed as male as I believe I actually have one already created, actually yes I do, but as for the the other character I just used she to make typing it out simple which I now realize makes no sense since I'm having to go out of my way to explain myself.
I feel like it's been a while since I've done any kind of search here. Not because I haven't been on, I still get on regularly to reply to roleplays I already have. But I had as many as I could handle before, not any more as I've had several die for various reasons, so now that I'm doing good to catch up to the already existing roleplays I want more. I've actually been on the prowl for a while, but didn't really give many here much of a chance as 1. I'm not a fast replier, 3. I wasn't sure what I wanted and 3. it seems most people here want mature roleplays which I do not do. However I don't really have anything to lose by creating a thread and seeing if I get any bites.
So first off a couple things we ought to get out of the way to determine if we're a good match.
Fair warning, I talk a lot.
Like I already said I'm not a fast replier, as a general rule of thumb I reply to everything once a week, unless you like bugging me. In which case kittens will be necessary.
I'd like to say that I'm not picky about length, that I don't care what skill level my partner is at, or that I'm willing to give anyone a chance, but frankly one or two liners don't do it for me. I can reply anywhere between 4 paragraphs to a novel depending on what's going on and what I have to work with and that is how I like it. I love reading and writing so not being able to do as much of that as possible seems to defeat the point for me.
I like character driven roleplays. Meaning plot isn't as important to me as character development and relationships. I didn't used to think this mattered but I guess some people just prefer their roleplays being plot heavy and get bored without that. Not to say I don't like plots, but plot for me comes after characters.
Now on the subject of maturity and limits, I'm afraid I'm going to be weirdly particular. I don't do smut, that is I don't write those things out, feel free to imply your character sleeping with the entire town I don't really care how much sex they have, just don't make me read the details. However I have no problem with violence or gore. I'm not into fluff and I do so love angst but I'm going to confuse you further, nothing non consensual. I realize it's odd to be OK with murder and not rape or anything, I don't care. It's a personal matter, it's none of your business, this is for fun, and it is a deal breaker.
So moving on to face claims and character sheets. If you like them than great, whatever floats your boat. I do do character sheets but don't share them unless requested to. I do sometimes do pictures, not really face claims as I only use my images for a variety of reasons, feel free to use whatever you want. Photos, anime, any other type of drawn image. I'm just saying this because if you don't like drawn face claims then I need to know to avoid using them. I'm still not going to go out and find a photo, if I have to I'll stick to written descriptions.
On a slightly related note I almost solely play males, I have mad exceptions and have played transgender males, but those were under very particular circumstances so I wouldn't count on being able to convince me to play females. Side characters and NPCs are another thing, sometimes you gotta throw them in and I am willing to play them but I expect you to be able to pull your weight and play them as well. Where romance is concerned I'm not terribly picky. Romance is great if it works and I don't particularly care what gender you wish to play or what ever sexuality you prefer. I like to think I can play a pretty wide variety of character types.
Alright so, while I do have some plots, it's gonna take me a bit to remember them all so I'm not going to post them all right away. I'll just add them in separate posts as I think of them. I have quite a many OCs (my babies) I wouldn't mind playing but I also don't mind starting from scratch.
As far as what kind of plots I like, I like to feel I'm fairly versatile. I love fantasy most of all but I also love horror, lovely drama, romance...I'm not too fond of fluff or comedy but in my not so humble, humble opinion, most plots regardless of genre can't be hurt by having some light hearted moments. I'm not a history buff but am still willing to do roleplays that span whatever time frame you want. Same goes for place thought I'm not surprisingly not a cultural expert. Then I don't usually say no to some kind of crime drama.
I'm not really looking for fandom based roleplays right now, for the most part. I guess if I'm looking for anything in particular it's some kind of fantasy, preferably high fantasy, though I don't usually say no to a good plot regardless.
I can't really think of anything else relevant, anything I do think of I'll just add it as it comes to my mind.

Genius me is typing this in the middle of the night so let's see how this goes. I sadly had some beloved roleplays die, and some I just don't expect quick replies to. I want to get back into this so here we go...So first let me get some boring things out of the way, then I'll tell you what my little ploties are.

-Now I am not a fast replier...Usually. My goal is to get a reply in once a week, however if I happen to have more time and am not bogged down I may or may not reply more than that. Bottom line, don't expect a quick roleplay.
I'll roleplay over PMs, threads, or Discord. But I wont give out my Discord until we've come to an agreement.
-I wont do smut. Sorry not sorry.
-In addition to that, there are a lot of dark things I'm willing to do, I do love angst. But please for the love of all things floofy, NO elements of rape or sexual assault. I don't just mean in the roleplay please refrain from adding that shit to anything period. I expect you to be mature enough to know what constitutes as consent. Sorry but this is a deal breaker.
-Use whatever face claims you want. I always design and draw my characters myself. Which leads me to my next point...
-I do have characters already created for some of these plots I'll put a ** by the ones I have them for.
-I don't care how much you write in a reply, I mean yeah make an effort but you don't need to feel like you have to type a certain amount.
-I write in third person, past tense. My first replies are usually novels, but once the roleplay gets going it averages out to 2-3 paragraphs.
-Character sheets are available upon request, as are fancy posts.
-OOC chatter is wonderful. Want to be friends? OK. Talk about anything from the plot to how baffling it is that people like Nina the killer. Brownie points if you like Death Note. I always keep IC posts and OOC chatter separate though.
-Some of the plots listed below name characters, this is only because I hate putting "character A" and "character B". Feel free to do whatever you want with your character. Their gender, age, sexuality, whatever is up to you.
-I only play males. Yup. You might convince me to play a transmale but that's iffy.

OK and finally for the plots. I did name some of the characters, that was just for fun, feel free to change them.

** She has been gifted, or cursed, from birth to foresee death. Having failed to prevent it once all she can do is weep when the knowledge of a death comes up. It's made her well known for miles around. And the people do not understand. Some fear and blame her, some pity her, but few care for her. Though her identity isn't common knowledge they have a nickname for her. Banshee. Finally one day she meets a kind stranger from far away, who knows nothing of her curse or her reputation. She believes she at long last found a friend. There is one problem though, he is to die in less than a weeks time. She is willing to risk everything to try and save him, but can she?

**Never stray from the old road in the woods, they say. Elves live in them. Elves that bring misfortune to anyone that happens upon them. Belle has lived a life full of hardships. One day while on an errand that took her through the woods she came across a an injured man. Out of pity she took him in and nurse him back to health only to learn that he was one of the elves she had been warned about. He promised her that for helping him she would be rewarded. Sure enough her fortunes begin to improve, but at the expense of all those around her.

**A neighboring kingdom kidnaps the princess of their rival kingdom. As she is confined within the walls of her captor's palace she meets the king's pet dragon. The two slowly become friends, perhaps they even develop romantic feelings for each other. Both are being kept against their will and they plan to help each other escape. Will they?

Unrest and turmoil has plagued the vast country of Elda ever since a very powerful magician took over the rule of the kingdom. Split by contention and held unwillingly by magic the five regions must be united and saved from the dark magic only by an equally powerful ritual. But those who can preform it are few and the complex magic requires five substances found all across the continent. It's up to a few brave souls to gather the necessary ingredients and preform the rare magic to save the country. (This totally did not come from a dream I had the other night and of course does not need alterations. Yay sarcasm!)

I'm usually overflowing with ideas, not always proper for a roleplay, but I may add more as they come or if I can think of a way to make them work. On the flip side, if you have any good fantasy, particularly high fantasy, then feel free to throw them at me.
Happy roleplaying!
-insert random dramatic theme song- I am looking again.
Didn't mention this before but I'm more than willing to do the same plot with more than one person.
I had a period were I wasn't doing much in the way of roleplaying, but I am back for more searching. I'll try and keep this boring stuff short and I'll start by listing the plots then if you're still here I get to the boring yet important stuff stuff and you can decide if we're a good match. Oh one thing first. I gave the characters names for the sake of explaining the plots, obviously they're just temporary. I don't like referring to characters as A and B because my brain runs on Death Note. I am only looking for the first two right now, but I am keeping the third up because there is a chance I'll be looking for it again someday.

Never stray from the old road in the woods, they say. Elves live in them. Elves that bring misfortune to anyone that happens upon them. Belle has lived a life full of hardships. One day while on an errand that took her through the woods she came across a an injured man. Out of pity she took him in and nurse him back to health only to learn that he was one of the elves she had been warned about. He promised her that for helping him she would be rewarded. Sure enough her fortunes begin to improve, but at the expense of all those around her.

Sharon has always been fair at her job as a detective. Though she hasn't always enjoyed the success she deserved. She believes she's caught her big break when assigned to a serial murder case that has been stumping everyone else for months. Shortly after, she runs into an old friend who seems very interested in her and her job. Both supposedly feeling romantic feelings for each other they begin a relationship. All the while she is unaware that he is the killer she is searching for.

Now that all the fun stuff is out of the way here are the things that everyone thinks they should talk about, that no one really wants to read.
1.None of the roles in those plots are up for negotiation. I've had some time to think characters over and have ideas in mind as well as a very well developed character for one of them. The gender of your character however, is. I only play males but will play along side any gender of sexuality whether romance is involved or not.
2.I will not hold you to any frequency of replies or length. I am not a fast replier, once a week is my goal, so you do not need to feel like you have to reply quickly either. Same for length, as long as my character can react to what you said everything's good.
3.On that same note even if you only reply once a month, that's fine. If you no longer wish to continue the roleplay It would be decent to let me know so I don't waste time waiting for a reply that wont ever comes. I never drop roleplays without warning. If I wish to stop or can't reply for whatever reason, someone will let you know.
4. You may hear from someone calling herself Stacy or more likely someone calling himself Beyond. This is relatively normal, no cause for alarm. I mean if you don't want to talk to them that's fine, but you'll have to say so.
5.I always write in third person with the intent of writing in past tense. Let's be honest we're all guilty of changing tense unintentionally. I usually average two or three paragraphs, but my first posts are almost always the longest. They can be anywhere from five paragraphs to The Wheel of Time.
6.Use whatever picture or description you want for your character. I always design and draw my characters myself so if you're one of those weird people who have something against art then descriptions will work fine.
7.Character sheets can be used upon request. Want them? Fine I can put them together. Hate them? Also fine. They're really only useful for our own reference.
8.I love character driven roleplays. Yes, give me that sweet, sweet character development.
9. I do not do smut. I do not do smut. Sorry not sorry, it's for personal reasons.
10. Cursing and violence is fine. Encouraged it if would work. I love angst.
11. OOC chatter is wonderful. Want to be friends? OK. Talk about anything from the plot to how baffling it is that people like Nina the killer. Brownie points if you like Death Note. I always keep IC posts and OOC chatter separate though.
12. I'll roleplay through either threads or PMs with PMs being my first choice.
13.This one just exists because I am bored and I have a weird sense of humor. You can stop reading now all the relevant information has already been said. I can't stop you from reading whatever I have typed up but if you're still here you must be really bored.
