welcome to my cozy little thread of plots and pairings! I've been on RPG since before this "new" site was put up and I've been role-playing for even longer than that. I took a break from the world of role-playing for a bit due to personal circumstances, but I'm finally making a return. I have a few ideas thought up already, but before we get to that we should go over my expectations, just to get them out of the way.

↪ semi-advanced to advanced writer, meaning I expect a few chunky paragraphs(at the least) with good grammar, punctuation, and spelling ↪ I'd prefer to keep the rp to PMs, but we could also rp through Discord or even Google Docs. I will not rp in a thread ↪ I will only write in third person and will only rp with people who write third person as well ↪ I'll play females, males, and anything in between but I prefer to play females ↪ I'd prefer for both my partner and I to make multiple characters for each rp, just to add more depth and realism ↪ no anime/manga images for character face-claims ↪ I'm over the age of 18 and will not rp with minors ↪ let me know if something pops up in your life and you become busy so I'm not twiddling my thumbs waiting for a response when I'll never get one
I am currently only looking to do one pairing, which is teacher x student. Below are the bare bones of a plot idea for the pairing. It doesn't necessarily need to be that plot - we could for sure work out another one. For the current moment, this is the only pairing I'm willing to take on. I would prefer to play Muse B and play them as a female.
The teacher, Muse A, works at a high school and is a young adult himself. The student, Muse B, was one of his students but has since graduated. While she was still his pupil and he her teacher, they developed a close friendship based on similar interests and her eagerness to learn. She, of course, had a crush on Muse A and surmised that he had some of the same feelings for her as well, based on the way he acted. On a whim, Muse B decided to graduate early, completing her last few classes over the summer and saying a very quick goodbye to all of her favorite teachers - including Muse A. Her graduating early cut off their relationship rather abruptly, leaving both of them wishing they'd had more time to just talk and be friends. A little while after she graduated, they randomly run into each other at a concert. They'd both hoped to see each other there, as they loved the same genres of music and it wasn't completely ridiculous to think that the other would be there. They strike up a conversation and exchange numbers, in a somewhat platonic way. Shortly after, things start to get more serious as they realize their true feelings.
Yea, we actually have a little piece of paper up in our hardware store that explains that it's a 20,000 dollar fine for trying to pass of your regular dog as a service dog. Some people even try to pass off their therapy dog as a service dog, which doesn't really work.
As for my question, I have seen a number of people bring "service" dogs into the store. Some you can't pet, are very focused, etc. Pretty much what you'd expect a service dog to be. But then I've seen others that are running around sniffing anything, and the owners have no problem with you petting them. But they insist that they are service dogs. Are there really service dogs that are that unruly?
That's so great of your store! Most stores around me have signs saying service animals only but nothing past that; your store taking it a step further and adding what the legal repercussion would be is simply wonderful.
Unfortunately, a lot of people get service dog, therapy dogs, and ESAs confused, even though all it takes is a simple Google search to find out the differences.
Again unfortunately, some training programs don't fully train their dogs and will give them to their handlers half-trained. Alternatively, some handlers will get fully trained dogs but not keep up the necessary daily retraining/task work and their dogs training will deteriorate. Further, those could definitely be fakes. For the petting issue, I sometimes let people pet my dog, but under very certain circumstances. Some handlers have no issue with their dogs being pet whenever, others have a very strict no-touch rule, and others, such as myself, are somewhere in between.
Touching on the sniffing around thing: As a rule of thumb, if a "service dog" is sniffing around, I view it as a fake. One of the first things my dog and a few of my friends' service dogs were trained was to not sniff around.
Inspired by the rise of people bringing yappy pets into stores this holiday season, I've decided to create this thread! I always get a lot of questions when people find out I have a service dog, so here is your chance to ask any and all questions you might have. Please be respectful of myself and others on this thread. Feel free to ask me any questions about my dog, service animal laws, emotional support animal laws, the difference between ESAs v. service dogs v. therapy dogs, my disabilities, and anything else you can think of!
FYI: I am in the U.S. and will be answering all questions based on U.S. laws and regulations, as they differ from country to country.
