Main Female: Lady Heart Main Male: Multiple Main Others: Created/Played as needed
Lady Heart was a name known around the world, both admired and feared. She was a no-nonsense type of being who had powers beyond the realm of imagination. The only thing she was better known for was her insatiable sexual appetite.
Her ideal belief was that the world should live in love and peace...and should they not, she was willing to spill the blood of her enemies to obtain it.
During the war between two powerful kingdoms, she is summoned by the king to help create a treaty of peace. When her letter of desired peace arrives at the enemy king who has refused the treaty many times before, he realizes the trouble he is in, as the letter is clear that she will hunt him down should he refuse...
Hoping to protect himself, he summons a powerful demon from the underworld to stop him, even if it means surrendering the souls of many of his loyal followers’ payment. The demon, however, makes one thing very clear... At the end, should he die, the King will die with him in order for his own soul to live again. Should he succeed, Lady Heart's soul will belong to him...
Upon receiving the letter of refusal, she sets out across the vast land and sea to locate the man who has refused peace, to spill his blood in order to create it by force. Along the way, she meets many different people, including many inhuman creatures. Having been M.I.A. for years, the world is stunned to learn of her travels, many hoping to catch a glance at the powerful deity, be it with or without her attire.
° Rome's Secret Reversed °
Main Female: Female 'Rapist' *By rapist, she has sex with them of some sort. No anal penetration. Main Male: Emperor's Son Main Others: Make them up as needed.
Word is spreading around Rome about a female rapist. No, not a rapist targeting females, but a female rapist targeting men. She's been active lately, more so than usual, and has become both a joke and a lustful wish. Many don't believe her to be a real person and others deem her to be crazy if she thinks she can get away with it for long. To the Emperor does not have many concerns, even though his only child is a man. With all the tall walls and guards, how could anyone even get to him?
His son, on the outside, seems to be your typical scholar type. Handsome, intelligent, and quite obedient when it comes to his duties as the future Emperor and taking care of his father as he grows old. The whole talk of a female rapist interests him on a level much deeper than many others. He has no expectations of meeting her, but he wonders how a woman could ever become so risky with her life.
When a new set of female workers for the castle are brought in, he takes interest in one woman specifically. She's a foreigner to Rome, but she's quite attractive, yet won't give him the time of day and his nice-guy act isn't winning him any favors, which irritates him. He's the Emperor's son. Women should flaunt to him.
Then one night, it happens. In the cover of dark, he is subdued, 'assaulted' (to his delight), and then she vanishes. During the act, he manages to feel a scar on her back. Perhaps an old injury from an assault gone bad?
A month passes and he hears of other attacks, and is almost upset that she not come back to him. His new fixation. Then, while watching the women hard at work in the garden, he spots the foreign woman who rejected him. As she grabs her shirt to clean off an apple in her hand, he spots a scar on her back. At first, he thinks nothing of it, but then realization hits.
As if his true self is finally released, he decides to stalk his prey, lunging only once she is alone. He is not the sweet man everyone takes him for, and now with his fixation on this woman, he plans to get from her everything and anything he wants.
He knows he can easily have her executed should he turn her in, as does she, and so begins their little game.
° You Krossed the Line °
Main Female: Powerful Female Spirit Main Male: Powerful Demon/Devil Main Others: Whoever we need/want **Extra Info** The demon is pre-designed. I will present you an image of him and tell you a bit about him as a character upon request.
The Devil/demon is the most powerful being in the underworld, bypassing even Lucifer himself. He keeps to himself in the lowest levels of the underworld, surrounded by his own army of powerful demons. Though he could be in control of the underworld, he has no desire to try and overthrow Lucifer. He knows that Lucifer is no match, which makes him unworthy of the battle in his mind. More so, he would never wish to rule over a underworld of inferior creatures.
On rare occasions, he rises to the human world to cause chaos, leaving no survivors in his wake. Though he knows he will not find a fighter that can challenge him in such a world, he finds some humor in the way humans respond to destruction.
During one rise to the surface, just as he begins to create chaos, a seemingly blind woman from the village approaches him and kindly asks him to stop his rampage. When it becomes clear that her words will not work, she intercepts one of his attacks, revealing that she is far from just another human. The fight is immense and he realizes he has met someone who can not only stand up to him, but possibly surpass him if he weren't careful.
In the battle, he attempts to slash her ankle, but ends up cutting off an anklet instead, which leaves a tear-shaped gem in his hand. Though the reaction is almost invisible, he realizes the gem is important to her and decides to use it against her. He tells her that she needs to come to his domain to continue their battle if he wants the gem back before he and his creatures vanish.
As he expected, she arrives, this time no longer pretending to be a blind human. The two again battle, but she knows he has no intention of giving her back her gem whether she wins or not. So, she decides to trick him. When he believes she's coming in for an attack, she instead passes him and gets him from behind. A clasp forms around his neck as she casts a binding spell on him.
The clasp doesn't stop his powers, but instead binds him to follow her within a specific radius at all times. She tells him that she will remove it if he gives back the gem and, unlike him, she would keep her word if he agreed. However, this, to him, is a game giving him entertainment and he refuses. The two begin a game of chicken to see who will surrender first.
She must deal with a demon following her at all times, unwilling to try and hide in the human world or blend in as she does. She is also forced to keep his behavior tolerable as he is willing to push her buttons by still attempting to cause chaos when he can. However in turn, he must deal with his distaste and hatred of the human world and the many inferior beings that live there, often chastised by the woman publicly for his behaviors.
Both are very aware that the demon/devil can break the binding spell, but only at he cost of the majority of his strength. He is well aware that, should he do that, Lucifer will likely attempt to take his life...as would many other powerful demons who see him as their enemy. She is also aware that she cannot kill him or let him die, for if he dies, she will not know the location of her gem.
As the two journey together, there is fighting, feelings, romance, and some steamy moments between the two.
° Red Light Daughter °
Main Female: Step-Daughter Main Male: Step-Father Main Others: Mother, boss, etc.
What's the saying about the best and worst stories involving tequila?
It was definitely involved in his.
He was a wealthy businessman in his mid-forties who had taken a trip to Hawaii as a well-earned vacation. There, he met an attractive woman and the two spent all their time together. She was best described as plastic, but she was fun and exciting. They both came from California and he was used to women like her when it came to all her 'enhancements'. The sex was damn good too. Somewhere along the way, with a bit too many drinks involved, the two got married. Maybe he liked the risk? Maybe he was just too drunk in love and tequila to realize what he was doing, but it was too late now. It wasn't until their shared flight home did the real her come out--the angry alcoholic.
Once she was passed out in the seat, he did a bit of digging and found out she had been married FIVE times prior. All her husbands had died or she'd divorced them, taking assets in each divorce. She probably hadn't worked a day in her life and had a long criminal history due to constant intoxication.
He planned to divorce her ASAP but planned to go slow as to not let her know. The last thing he needed was his fortune going into her hands. So, he played a happy face as he helped her to her mansion on the beaches of L.A. While she went about making a drink and heading to bed, he would take a look around. There were pictures of a young girl around the house. A daughter? Cute. She was probably seven or so in the photos he saw. What appeared to be her grandfather was in a number of the photos (though the man was really her father and his new wife's first husband).
Deciding to get himself a drink to relax himself, he'd notice something out the rear sliding door. A giant pool. A giant pool...with a woman in it. The woman had the same hair color as the little girl in the photo, but this was no little girl. This was a woman. Slender with an hourglass shape, with just enough muscles to show she prided herself in keeping her body the way it was. Unlike his new wife, this girl had no plastic. Somehow, she'd gotten the good genetics in the family.
Upon introducing himself, she confirms she is the woman's only child. Like her mother, she parties and enjoys physical company. In his eyes, she's a tease, whether she realizes it or not. Though he would love to pursue her, he knows that would only make a divorce complicated, so he has to keep his distance. He's already finding the divorce to be more complicated than he expected and he's left to attempt to keep the marriage stable until he can find a way out.
This only becomes harder when he catches his wife in bed with one of her daughter's male friends during a large party at their house. Angered, he heads for the kitchen to poor himself a drink. There, he meets a man around his age who, after a bit of chat, gives him a business card. He runs a special escort service and feels the man could use a bit of R&R. He thinks it over and then decides it's worth the risk. Knowing the woman he has married, he has no intention of getting into bed with her every again.
Still, he knows he has to be careful, so when setting up, he asks for discreet. He doesn't want the woman seeing him or knowing who he is, but he wants to be able to at least see some of her form. The owner says he has the perfect girl and the perfect idea. The meeting spot for the two is in his special hotel, where he's given a red-light room. It creates a shadow illusion, stopping those inside from seeing physical features. Instead, all they see our silhouettes.
The woman who arrives doesn't let him down and soon it's over. However, once she leaves the room, he finds her keys on the bathroom counter and runs out to fetch her. He figures that her seeing him for a split second in a parking garage won't be long enough for her to ever recognize him in public. So, he runs out and catches up to her as she is searching for her keys. Upon calling out for her, she turns, and his stomach sinks.
It's his step-daughter.
° White-Eyed Beauty °
Main Female: Female Prisoner Main Male: Camp Leader or Male Prisoner (the prisoner is a prisoner of war). Main Others: The opposite of your choice and many others.
World War II is in full force and civilians live their daily lives looking over their shoulders. Some were luckier than others when it came to how safe they were, and some would she'd been born lucky. She was married to a wealthy man who was the owner of a top supplying company of weaponry to the Nazi party.
She was wealthy.
She was beautiful.
She was safe.
To her, however, life was nothing as the outside world saw it, and after another pattern of abuse, she stormed from her home. Something in her broke that day and she was willing to face anything to be away from him. Little did she know, that would mean going into town where the military would soon arrive to gather any and all they thought impure.
There was a danger in what she did, but she was willing to take anything over him, and so she let them drag her away with so many others, onto a train and out of the city. When they were finally unloaded days later, she was tired and silent, simply listening to the yelling and screaming around her. A few other people who appeared to be of wealth would approach her, telling her to follow them to a group of similarly dressed people. It seemed those of wealth were split from those who looked poor... Well, at least at first. Rich people had valuables.
When it came time for them to remove their gems and jewelry, one of the guards would approach her. Though he believed her to be unable to understand him, she was very aware of how he was speaking to her like she was some sexual object. Instead of reacting, she removed her items of wealth and handed them over, as if just following everyone else around her who were being given the same commands. Upon doing so, the man harassing her would note her wedding ring and begin asking where her husband was.
Only after enough harassment would she say the name Ernst Wilhelm. The man would have her repeat it and she would speak fluent German back to him. He would laugh and demand the ring, to which she removed it. However, upon doing so, the man went silent and snatched her hand. She could hear the shouting, and he would leave her to speak with others.
She'd forgotten that her husband had branded her finger below the ring with the mark he put on all his weaponry. Approached by someone of authority, it would be determined that she would need to be kept safe from the 'filth' until the husband could be contacted... So, while she would live in the camp, she would work as a servant of the Nazi soldiers, cooking, cleaning, and the like. She'd get used to the harassment. Beauty was a curse to her. In time, she'd be dragged home and harassed still, so what difference was there? In the meantime, she makes friends with the prisoners, sneaking them what she can from the kitchen.
Little does she realize that the leader of the camp has decided not to inform her husband of her whereabouts. In fear of backlash from someone of such power, he believes it safer to just keep her there. Luckily for her, not only does he find her too pretty to let wither away in the camp, but if ever discovered, they could play innocent and have her sent home... If she were to become ill or die, he too would find himself buried in a ditch were it to be discovered.

Main Female: Anime Female Main Male: Human Male Main Others: Created/Played as Needed
His life was dull. He'd married young and had been regretting it ever since. He worked hard to make money, sometimes working three jobs in a week. His wife wanted a baby, but he refused due to the lack of income to properly support it, especially with her refusal work. This refusal to give her what she wanted would create problems between them that only got worse with time. Neither were happy, but for completely different reasons. She was mad that he wouldn't give her a baby and he wasn't bringing in enough money, and he was mad that she refused to help to make the money that would allow her to have the child she wanted.
While on his third job of the day during a sleepless twenty-four seven, he ends up exploding on a customer and is fired. Upon arriving home early, he notices a pair of shoes at the front door that don't belong to him. Angered at what he knows is happening, he heads upstairs and catches his wife in bed with another man. Fueled by rage after a scuffle with the man, he heads downstairs and gets his gun.
In the events that follow, his wife is killed and the man escapes. By morning, he is arrested. At court, he is found guilty of murder. He spends the next few years in jail, attempting to appeal his conviction. When he finally succeeds and his murder is considered a 'crime of passion', he is returned to the living world where alcohol is his only escape from his misery.
During his time in jail, he had begun drawing to help him pass the time. So, after spiraling down a dangerous road, he decided to return to drawing to help him escape once again from the misery of his life. Unfortunately, realizing he can never truly exist in the world he has created, a world that makes him so happy, he attempts to commit suicide by drugging himself while in the tub, slowly sinking below the water as he grows tired.
Upon seeping below the water, he sees the vision of a woman above him. She doesn't look real. In fact, she looks like a drawing... He's suddenly ripped from the water and finds himself awakening near a river where a woman sits nearby. Everything around him looks...drawn... The art is far better than his own. The woman is also much more beautiful than he could ever hope to create himself.
She tells him that he is in a world known as 'I.a.P'. Here, all the characters ever drawn live in different realms depending on style, though some do intermingle. In the water, he can see that he is still human. To her, everything looks real, where he is just as odd looking as she might be to him.
Having seen him through his artwork, she had found his pain to be immense and had brought him here in an attempt to save his life. She wants him to be happy, and she's willing to do so by any means possible...under a few conditions... A war is raging in the worlds and she needs his assistance to protect her kingdom. Due to his inhuman body, he will be able to create new items into the world that they can use to fight.
There is a risk though. Should he die in the battle, he will forever be stuck in their world.
° Rome's Secret °
Main Female: Female 'Rapist' *By rapist, she has sex with them of some sort. No anal penetration. Main Male: Anyone of relative power* *Famous Warrior, Cruel Suitor, etc. Main Others: Make them up as needed.
Word is spreading around Rome about a female rapist. No, not a rapist targeting females, but a female rapist targeting men. She's been active lately, more so than usual, and has become both a joke and a lustful wish. Many don't believe her to be a real person and others deem her to be crazy if she thinks she can get away with it for long. To the Emperor, it doesn't concern him. No one is dying and his only living child, a daughter, is not at risk.
Due to how the rapists does her work, there are no true eye-witnesses to her appearance. She attacks in the dark and often blindfolds the men to ensure they don't see her. Recently, however, word has spread of part of a tattoo they spotted on her arm. When this reaches the word of (your char), he doesn't think much of it until he accidentally walks in on the Empress in a state of partial undress, taking note of the tattoo on her arm in his retreat.
After contemplating the risks of what he knows, he decides to confront her. He can easily give her away as the tattoo is all it will take, so he knows she's in no spot to wave him off. He tells her he won't stop her from going out and having her fun, but he will demand obedience from her in his pursuit for power. She has no option but to agree to his terms, not yet knowing how he will use the knowledge he has to his advantage.
° Winter Moon °
Main Female: Female Higher Main Male: Enhanced Soldier Main Others: Leader of both groups (Human & Alien), and many created/played as needed
His life had been spiraling out of control since he could remember. Born to addicts, it wasn't surprising when he became one. Under the influence of his own abusive father and mother, he too became abusive and controlling. By his mid-twenties, he was a glorified thug who got in fights nearly every day if he wasn't drinking in the local bar or picking up a prostitute.
A few months before his 'accident', it had begun snowing quite early in the year. As the months went on, the snow didn't let up and soon a good portion of the world was covered in ice and powder. Even vast deserts now had blizzards instead of sandstorms. Life became harder for many, but life wasn't too different for him. He didn't have much to begin with, so when power went out, it didn't faze him all that much.
Then came the night he was attacked by a rival in the streets. He was shot in the chest and left for dead, bleeding out over the glistening white snow. To his surprise, a group of men appeared looking straight out of the old flick 'The Men in Black' and offered to save him in exchange for his help. With a desire for revenge, he agrees, not yet knowing what he is agreeing to.
Once recovered from his injury, he is introduced to a powerful and secretive organization that has been watching the decline of the world due to the ever constantly falling snow. The explain that an alien race has come to earth in search of a power-source. Though he doesn't initially believe, his world flips when he's shown an alien in captivity.
They tell him that he is the ideal candidate for their program known as 'ORB'. The power-source the aliens seek can only be found inside a living female, but finding that female is nearly impossible. The power can only be used by men, as the female are only the host for it to be nurtured and grown. The longer it resides in its host, the stronger it comes. When the host dies, the power finds a new host like a living parasite looking for its next meal. It does no harm to its host, but it has led to the death of many innocent women at the hands of the alien.
Due to the fact the power can only be released when the Adrenalin of the host peeks, the aliens use both fear and sexual assault to test whether or not the power resides in their captive. If it doesn't, the woman is killed.
In order to combat the alien race, along with special weaponry, they have created their own orb that can be placed inside a living host to grant them inhuman abilities, such as enhanced strength and speed. This is where the man comes in. He will be given the orb. He is warned the process will be painful and require months of training before he will be allowed to leave, but not having a choice any longer, he begins the process.
During his time in the organization, training his body for the battles to comes, he learns about the chain of command. He is a soldier of ORB, making him more important than many of the lackeys he'll meet. Above him are the Guiders, people who are in charge of ensuring the organization runs smoothly. Above them are 'Highers', people who have been with the organization for the longest time and are skilled in their professions. They are often the leaders of missions. The only thing above the Higher is the 'Controller', the ones who run the organization.
Once his training is complete, he is sent home. Yep. After all that pain, hard work, and misery, he's sent home to wait... Months pass and he returns to his old ways, which isn't so bad, as he manages to kill the group that tried to kill him. Upon receiving his first letter to meet his Higher for a mission, he heads off to the bar where they are to meet. There, he's greeted by two men who explain the mission. Upon the arrival of his Higher, he is angered to find that it's a woman. Due to his raising, he isn't happy about having to take commands from a woman, but she is as stubborn as they come and dishes back what he dishes out.
Unlike many Highers, she is special. She is the only female who has made it so far in rank. Often used as bait, they send with her people who survive the ORB transplant to assist her in hunting down and destroying the aliens. The two are required to work together, even if they both have a dislike for one another. If they don't, one of them won't be alive for much longer.
° The Subway °
Main Female: 'Victim' Main Male: 'Attacker' Main Others: MANY!
° This is a 'who done it' style of plot. It will take us both playing many characters. It's for men who like playing many characters at once.°
She'd come from Ireland to work in Russia at a very powerful firm. The job was a dream job, but it quickly became a daunting task and soon a nightmare. She was one of only a handful of women. From what she could tell, none of the other women enjoyed being there either. Why? The men. All the many...many men. Perverts, sleaze balls, and power-hungry assholes. From day one, the sexual harassment started, but she put up with it because she needed the job. Losing it meant losing almost everything. Though she was by no means a submissive woman, she would do anything to keep her job.
After a few weeks of arriving late due to traffic and worrying about losing her job, she opts to take the subway when one of the female coworkers mentions it's the best way to get to and from the area she lives. So, she does. The first few trips actually save her time and she feels at ease, at least as much as she can knowing the hell she goes to at work. It seemed pleasant enough, though some days were more crowded than others...
Then came the day something, or someone, changed the game. During one busy morning on the subway, she finds herself assaulted. She doesn't know who the man behind her is, but he makes it clear that he has a weapon and will hurt her if she says anything or looks back at him. Worried for her safety, she does as told. Though she reports it, she isn't taken seriously due to her being a foreigner and even feels harassed by the cops. So, she is forced to return to life without assistance. As time goes on, the mystery man appears on the subway at random, growing braver with each assault.
As the assaults continue, it becomes almost a norm and she grows to enjoy the risky behavior. At work, this begins to affect her persona and how she deals with the abuse at work. To some delight of the men, she is more interested now in their advances and seems to even welcome some of it. Part of her is enjoying the risk, but part of her is attempting to see if any of these men are the men from the subway, as she knows the only stop the subway makes it to the stop where she gets off for work.
She wants to figure out who he is, though she doesn't know what she'll do once she has figured it out.
