* PST timezone * 2-5 para response on average, can and will do 8+ * Advanced, literate roleplayer * Male & female characters * MxM, FxF, MxF, any nonbinary ship, plus platonic/family * Dark themes (not gratuitous violence or shock value stuff, I just have a lot of abuse/drugs/rock 'n roll in a lot of my characters' backstories and the like) * Typically, I can reply daily, usually at least twice. I've done at least twenty for a single rp before in one day, too, so, I can generally match your pace! I do have a life, though, and pets, and school, and a family, so there'll be the occasional spoof for a few days (but I'll keep in touch OOC). * OOC chatter & collaboration, here or on Discord. * New to site but not to roleplay (going on 10+ years) * Will supply character sheets in PM's
« You »
* Looking for around 2-5 paragraph posts on average * I ask that you collaborate with me. I don't want to be the only one dragging this plot along, nor do I wish to simply be along for the ride. * Communication and out-of-character discussion/chat * Come to me with some vague idea about what you want to do--a plot, a character, something. * I'm looking for someone who can post at least every few days and no less than once a week. * Just tell me your favorite bird so that I know you read this! ^_^
« The Plots »
I can adapt some of these for non-fantasy/realistic, and am totally in for adapting them or whatever; these are just basic ideas. Feel free to approach with your own ideas on them, too. I can supply more details through PM, I just didn't want to make this thing longer than it already is.
Courtesy of der Silberfuchs (Crime|Supernatural|Any Pairing/Platonic) (REALLY JONESING FOR THIS ONE) It wasn't the first of the killings. The body was left with a single card beneath his tongue, inscribed in a fine cursive print written in the dark ink of a fountain pen, calligraphy spelling three, simple words: Courtesy of der Silberfuchs. They deemed him a copycat killer, mirroring the signature mark of one of Nazi Germany's assassins of the Second World War, and YC picked up the trail as a vigilante, law enforcement, a monster hunter (he is a vampire, and perhaps YC figured this out), or even a journalist. Hunted, searched with a dogged intensity--and then the trail went dead. The killings simply stopped. For years, there wasn't a single similar case anywhere in the world.
It's been three years, and the a third missing person has shown up in the course of six months. This wouldn't generally be a cause for concern. YC, however, has a hunch or catches a hint and when they poke their nose in, they discover something else: these people aren't being kidnapped or trafficked or merely taken home by a divorced parent without custody. They're being killed and, worst of all, it follows a pattern. Most others don't notice it without the calling card but YC does--how could they not, after the time they've spent hunting this criminal?--and a simple fact becomes clear: Silberfuchs is back, no longer as a hitman, but as a serial killer.
Meanwhile, YC has met, in one fashion or another, this fine fellow who goes by the name of Kratzer (MC). Maybe they saw him fighting in the illegal cages in the city's underbelly, or perhaps it was at a club where he came as a performer. Maybe it was simply in the store or on the street or anywhere else. Regardless of the nature of their meeting, or their developing relationship, they've become increasingly fond of each other (romantic or otherwise). In fact, they could almost call each other friends. There's endless possibilities: maybe YC is a monster hunter who's after him and knows he's undead, but doesn't know that he's the killer they've been tracking, while Kratzer recognizes that he's the very murderer YC pursues without knowing YC knows he's a monster; perhaps YC is an investigative journalist who picked up this trail on the side; maybe YC's in law enforcement and their mentor was on his case before getting killed by him, and then it went cold, and ever since, YC has been seeking the killer. But, after all of this it finally comes to light: Kratzer and Silberfuchs are one in the same.
The Winter King (Fantasy | Medieval or Modern | Multiple Worlds | MxM preferred) The Seven Circles of Hell bent their knee in unity to him for the first time in history, and Heaven has crumbled under his iron rule. The Princes of Hell are dead and in their place has risen a single King: the Son of Sathanus, the Prince of Wrath, the Winter King, the feared tyrant and snow-hearted dictator, Cornyx Blackthorne (my main). His reputation precedes him as a man of unrivaled ruthlessness, something that's earned him both respect and fear in his new empire despite his questionable past.
Somehow, things are hardly that simple to him, however: he betrayed everything he had for this power, and now, he's beginning to question himself. Should he have really given in to that demonic instinct that lurked in the deepest parts of his frozen heart? Should he have pierced the heart of his former mentor in the name of bloodlust and power? Yet each time he's faced with another decision--another choice of whether or not to take another step down that dark path--he's chosen to take it in order to further his own agenda, so how can he be anything but a villain?
He's on the brink of war, ready to storm Earth--or a more fantastical, Earth-like place we'd make together, it could be modern or medieval--and take over the final realm he hasn't yet conquered. His armies are rallying and his right-hand woman (this could be you, if you wanted) has opened the gates between Hell and Earth. The war begins as monsters begin to creep their way into this formerly mundane world and wreak havoc. Soon, his armies will follow, and the nations of this world will become as frozen as its ruler.
Perhaps your character is a rebel, who opposes his rule, or a close advisor; maybe they're someone on Earth prepared to fight, a freelance monster hunter or a soldier; there's a ton of options for it and I'm totally not picky. Maybe your character even ends up overthrowing him or freeing the people he's got under his thumb. I'm definitely not beyond killing a character if that's what ends up happening. I'd love their relationship to end up being complicated though, whether they begin as friends or foes--Cornyx has a lot of sides and they play out really differently with different characters, and I would just love to see what happens with whatever you come up with, if we decide to do this plot!
World War II & a Vampire (Semi-historical|Supernatural|Platonic preferred)
MC is a soldier of Nazi Germany (the character "Kratzer" below). YC is a civilian, off-duty soldier, Ally soldier (which I think would be super fun if they were stranded together and had to work as a team even though they're enemies), or somethin' else. Basically, MC is injured and stranded on a freezing winter night and winds up seeking shelter with or from YC as a last resort. I prefer this to be platonic but if you have your heart set on romance, we can talk. Open to going a lot of directions with this one.
