WHAT IS BARBERMONGER?

BARBERMONGER is a site designed to help roleplayers find other roleplayers, specifically one-on-one roleplayers, as opposed to larger roleplay games. Functioning like a pinboard, BARBERMONGER allows users to create advertisements, bump advertisements, and respond to other advertisements, without requiring them to register an account. However, registering an account will allow you to edit your posts, find your own topics, and use the private messaging system.

Contents

Before I begin, here is a bit of a “table-of-contents” section so you know what’s to come since this post is quite long!
  • Introduction & About Me [self-explanatory - an introduction to myself and some points on me and my writing style]
  • What I’m Looking for in a Partner [again, self-explanatory - a description of what I’m looking for in a partner]
  • Roleplay Information [a brief blurb on how I set up the following areas (which role I would prefer, what some little symbols mean, types of relationships, etc.)]
  • Fandoms [not many, but fandom pairings I would be willing to write]
  • Fairy Tales [again, not many, but fairy tale pairings I would be willing to write]
  • Pairings/Plot Points [again, self-explanatory - quite a long list of pairings and plot points that I’d be willing to write]
  • Plots [again, not many, but one plot of my own that I’d be interested in writing]
  • Characters [a list of characters and summaries of each that I already have the ideas for and could be fit into any other pairing/plot idea (i.e. you can choose one or multiple that you like and would want to write against and then we can build a plot from there, almost like a build-a-bear but with a story)]
  • Contact [my email and contact information]
Introduction & About Me

Hello! My name's Rain, and I'm a 21-year-old who has been roleplaying for approximately 6 years (but only in the most recent 4 or 5 have I really been "serious"). After being dragged by the ankles (although not without a struggle) into a hellish chasm of personal issues that has kept me from writing, I’ve finally managed to work everything out and am now itching to get back into the roleplaying-game! I'm hoping that I can find some good partners to satiate my cravings, and hopefully I can satiate some of yours too. If you emailed me in the past and I didn’t respond, shoot me another email! Like I said, I had some things get in the way, so I’d be up for rekindling a past roleplay or picking up planning where we left off.
  • I can write replies ranging anywhere from 500-1200 words average - I know that's a rather big window to call my "average", but I don't want to make it sound like that's my strict length. This equates to around 3-8 paragraphs, but that obviously will vary depending on the size of the paragraph. I can certainly go upwards from 1200 and have gone on to posts with 2000+, however that's usually too much for most people. Essentially, I'll write the same amount you write so that it's not over or underwhelming. Let me know your range and I'll adapt! Although, if you would be willing to write 1500+/2000+ words a post, then you’d earn quite a bit on bonus points from me.
  • In terms of writing style, I write third person, past tense, multi-paragraph to novella. Here are some samples of my writing! The first was an intro so it’s quite long, and the second is from the same roleplay as the first. The third is from a separate one.
  • I'm also putting this up front - my schedule's a bit wonky. There will be some days where we can go back and forth multiple times with multiple posts each and there will be some days where I can't reply at all. I'll try my best to let you know in advance if there will be a period of 2+ days where I can't reply, but things happen. My activity rate is partially dependent on interest level as well - if I'm really into and excited about our roleplay, I'll be able to reply more often!
  • On a similar note, I'm on the east coast (EST) if that's an important factor for you.
  • I'm open to playing multiple characters if that suits your fancy, or, if you'd rather just play one each, that's fine by me as well.
  • For relationship pairings, I do all different kinds: romantic/sexual, platonic, familial, and antagonistic. I think it's fine to mix and match all these different kids because they can make for some interesting character interaction! As for the gender pairings of the characters, I'm mostly looking for m/f, but depending on the idea/character I may do m/m (but please, make sure you ask first!).
  • Regarding the above, I very much prefer the female role in m/f pairings but of course in m/m pairings I will play a male. I don't usually double in terms of each partner playing one male and one female, either - I know that is a deal-breaker for many, so I apologize for that. I may be willing to double in certain cases, but I’m not easily convinced - however, if you think you have mastered the arts of persuasion, then by all means, try to persuade me. I’m open to it.
  • I'm smut friendly as well and don’t mind including it in my roleplays, but it's really dependent on the content of the story itself. I don't necessarily want a story that is focused solely on smut, but I wouldn’t mind having it play a part (whether it’s small or large, that’s for you to decide). Going along with the NSFW theme, I'm all for most kinks - you name it, and more likely than not I'll be willing to write it, but I would still rather you check with me first. The only ones that I won't do and can't be convinced to do are pedophilia, necrophilia, bestiality, anything with body fluids, feet, pregnancy/lactation, vore, and gore. Everything else is fair game. Note that of those, gore and only gore is fine when not employed sexually (i.e. if the characters are fighting or in battle or are doing something violent of the sort, then it is totally fine). If you’d like to include smut, ask me for my list of kinks and share yours with me as well!
  • I use face-claims for all of my characters and only use realistic images.
  • I'm only interested in roleplaying over email at the moment. My email is ofliliesandfoxgloves@gmail.com.
What I'm Looking for in a Partner

Now that we've got those basics out of the way, there are certain things that I would like out of a partner that hopefully someone can provide!
  • Be 18+, please. I know I'm technically on the younger end of the adult spectrum but I still feel uncomfortable roleplaying with minors (especially because some of my plots can contain smut).
  • I would prefer if you were female, just because I am more comfortable roleplaying and writing with someone who is the same gender as I am, but that isn’t a requirement, as I don't want to totally limit the partners that reach out to me and potentially miss out on a fantastic male, nonbinary, etc. partner just because they aren't female.
  • I'm looking for someone who can at least mirror or match my minimum post length, so no fewer than 3-4 paragraphs or 500 or so words. Again, if you want to write longer replies that span the 1500+ word range, than that would be even better!
  • I would like if you wrote in the third person. Tense doesn't matter - write present or past, that's up to you. But I won't roleplay with anyone who writes in the first or second person, as it is a little weird to me.
  • If you can get me at least one post every other day, I'd be happy! If you can get me more than that, even better! Also, let me know if you're not going to be able to reply for a prolonged period of time so that I'm not sitting on my hands wondering where you went.
  • Likewise, if you want to drop the roleplay for any reason, just let me know! I won't be mad if it's not working out, I just don't want to be ghosted by someone who doesn't want to continue and instead never replies again.
  • If you can play multiple characters, that would be wonderful, but again, it's certainly not a requirement.
  • Use realistic face claims for characters, please! No anime or cartoons, but if you are an artist that has a more realistic style and would like to use your own art, then that is fine by me!
  • When you email me, let me know which things listed below interest you/you would want to include! Tell me a little about yourself and the way you write as well (including whether or not you would like to include smut in the roleplay as well as your limits if it's the latter).
  • Also, if you have an idea that I haven't listed, ask/tell me! I'm very open to suggestions!
Roleplay Information

On to the part that you've actually wanted to see! I have a variety of things that I would like to include in a roleplay. To set it up, my preferred role in a pairing will be italicized; if neither are italicized, then I will write either. I'll also note what type of relationship I would be interested in writing for a particular pairing/plot (romantic/sexual, platonic, familial, or antagonistic); we can also combine some of the four (like a romantic/sexual and antagonistic would be fun). Additionally, we can combine pairings if you’d like by writing more than one character each. Anything with a carrot (^) means I have a plot in mind if you’d like to hear it, and anything with an asterisk (*) means that I am willing to write either m/f or m/m (which means anything without one means only m/f). I’m up for fluff or action or anything in between, so let me know what you want!

Fandoms

Harry Potter
  • Hermione Granger x Draco Malfoy (romantic/sexual and/or antagonistic)
  • Ginny Weasley x Draco Malfoy (romantic/sexual and/or antagonistic)
  • [Your suggestion] x [Your suggestion] (romantic/sexual, platonic, antagonistic and/or familial)
Fairy Tales

Note: if any animal-esque character is involved in the following pairings, any romantic/sexual interactions will occur when that character is in human form, and/or the character will be replaced with a similar human mythical creature (ex: werewolf).
  • Little Red Riding Hood
  • The [Boy/Girl] Who Cried Wolf *^
  • Beauty and the Beast *^
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Aladdin
Pairings/Plot Points

  • Royalty x Knight (romantic/sexual or platonic)
  • Kidnapping/abduction
  • Vampire x Human (romantic/sexual, platonic, and/or antagonistic) [note: I have done this one a lot of times, so if you’d like to do this one, make sure your plot is interesting and/or unique!]
  • Demon x Human (romantic/sexual and/or antagonistic)
  • Overprotectiveness/possessiveness [note: I love this relationship element, especially overprotectiveness!]
  • Demon x Demon Hunter (romantic/sexual and/or antagonistic)
  • Artist/Photographer x Model/Dancer (romantic/sexual, platonic, or familial) *

  • Fae/Fairy/Pixie x Human (romantic/sexual, platonic, and/or antagonistic)
Plots

I only have one pre-thought here, but I’m really open to your suggestions! If you’ve been dying to write a plot but haven’t found someone to write it with yet, please tell me! I’d be happy to satiate your craving.
  • A florist and tattoo shop are located across the street from each other, and the tattoo artist comes in every day to buy flowers/look at flowers to practice drawing, but both he and the florist are very much attracted to each other.
Characters

I’m not quite sure what to call this section, but it’s essentially a summary (more like bullets) of some characters that I already have ideas for that can be used in various different scenarios and plot-lines. They are in no particular order. If you are willing to let me use one of these, that will earn you major bonus points with me! Let me know if you are interested in any and I can elaborate. Most of them don’t have names yet (and the ones that do are subject to change) because I am very picky with names, aha, but I’ll think of those later. There obviously aren’t many of these at the moment, but there will likely be more of these added in the future. Anything with a plus (+) is one I am really dying to use! If you have an idea for/an already made character that you think would pair well with any of these, please describe them to me! Or, alternatively, if you have any characters you’ve been dying to use, let me know! Perhaps I can create a character to write opposite them.
  • i. anny // female // early to mid twenties // heterosexual // asian // american // + // laid-back; quiet; passive-aggressive; collected, sly; manipulative; understanding; charming; grew up wealthy, still is wealthy, doesn’t bring up financial situation much; has danced in various genres since she was little, still does; english major, cognitive science minor; plays the violin; dislikes uncleanliness; editor.
  • ii. olson // male // mid twenties // bisexual, prefers men // caucasian // american // + // bitter; sarcastic; serious; aloof; intelligent; private; defensive; lost hearing in his early childhood, received cochlear implants in late adolescence, speech still sounds “different” from a hearing person’s; knows American Sign Language (ASL) and English; film/television production and mathematics double major, art history minor; likes maps; doesn’t particularly like physical contact; photographer [note: would prefer to write him against a character who is hearing and able to talk rather than another character on the mute/hard-of-hearing spectrum; you can find his full character sheet here].
Contact

That's all I can think of at the moment! Again, if there's anything else not listed that you've been dying to try out, let me know! More likely than not, I'll say yes and jump right on board. Shoot me an email at ofliliesandfoxgloves@gmail.com with your interests and a little information about yourself (ex: average post length, activity, etc.). If you shoot me a message just saying a pairing you were interested in without telling me about yourself, then I won't be as inclined to reply since I don't know if our styles would match up! So please, tell me about yourself - I promise I won't bite!

Bump (also, if you emailed me an introductory email - like an email where you were reaching out to me for the first time - and didn't get a response, email me again/forward it to me with a note! I just had an issue with my email that deleted all of my inbox messages)
