I'm looking for a role play over email. Mostly mxm, but you might tempt me into mxf or fxf if you're good and have a good plot. This will be mature, with themes of sex, adult language, violence, alcohol, drugs, whatever you want to mix in. I'll draw the line at some of the kinkier kinks (I'd be a mess role playing bdsm, sorry). I don't really fade to black, but nor am I fond of the other extreme of doing out sex scenes in long, gory detail for like 500 posts. Maybe the first scene, but I find that really hot detailed sex, while enjoyable, tends to put a major cramp in plotting, which slows down the role play. But, you know, the sex is fun too...

Post length and frequency: I really enjoy long rambling fluffy posts (400-800 words--or longer if you can do that I will try to match you), but I know those take time. I don't expect one every day, certainly not more than once a day, but about once a week at that length would be lovely (though I'm not going to kill you if you send me more, I just might not be able to keep up). If we go shorter, (200-300 words) I do expect faster posts. Once every few days. I don't want to wait two to three weeks for a 200 word post. I will try to match length and hope you will too, or tell me ahead of time if you're not into long posts because I don't want to keep trying to push out these really long detailed posts if you're not going to give me the same back. But I'm really not against shorter posts. But as you can see I tend to ramble so longer posts happen. Srsly this paragraph is like an essay already. shuddup.

I often use face claims for characters. I'm happy to show them to you if I have one, but also to keep them to myself if you're not interested. And I'd like to see yours if you use them. But, you know, keep it to real people, not anime or anything.

ROLE PLAYS ALREADY

I am craving beyond all desire a good historical, Edwardian-WWI role play. Any of the following, really.

1900s-1930s: some mix of classes, servants, drama, social ruin (think Downton Abbey/Upstairs Downstairs/Masterpiece Classic land), England/America/other places if you don't mind as much knowledge on my part
subgenres in this period:
hotel (inspired by The Grand, series by RTD): probably guest x staff
WWI/WWII: information leak x government official (not like an official government spy, just someone leaking information to the other side), or some other army type thinggg
wwi: some pairing of enemy soldiers, friendly soldiers of different rank, social status, pow, medic, civilians near the front, hospital, anything else you can think of
Berlin in 30s: inspired by Christopher and his Kind
rural/estates: I dunno but sex outside and dirt and grime is fun
Titanic: yeah this one sounds kinda doomed for two men, doesn't it?

I will also do:
modern: some ideas
runaway/prostitute x other
employee x employer
teacher/professor x student
married father living away from home for work purposes having a clandestine affair with his roommate, very sheltered and confining relationship
artist x muse

probably more if you can think of anything, feel free to suggest. Odd pairings, plots you have, etc. I have a few modern plots, you could mix in some fantasy too probably. If you think we're super compatible and you've got something you want to do, try me. c:

You might tempt me with some future/medieval/sci-fi/fantasy, but I don't have much experience role playing these, just watching Doctor Who, Firefly, Merlin, Tolkien-verse, etc. And I have some plots below, mostly old ones that I've never gotten a chance to role play, but I'm probably still interested in them. And suggest!

What I enjoy:
character tension, lots of
class differences
age differences (in moderation)
power struggle
incest (sometimes, but it's been a while)
i hate you but let's have sex anyway
teasing, banter, name calling, utter frustration at how much of an idiot you are
angstttt.
dramaaaa.
pain, death, anguish, shame, self hatred, more sex
snow, sex in the
boat, sex in the

plots!
edwardian period dramas:
1. we can blame their friendship on an overindulgent father with little respect for the rules of society, and the rift that formed between them on a strict mother and the effects of a good education. The two boys, one the heir to a large estate belonging to an old, wealthy and well respected family, and the other the only child of a servant. Born months apart from each other, with no other children their age on the estate, they become friends. They spend all their time together, at least when the young master can slip away from his tutor. It's the sort of thing that ought to have been stopped, an inappropriate friendship, but no one ever told them that. The older they get, the closer their friendship becomes, closer than even their parents know, until suddenly one summer, when the nobleman's son comes home for his summer holidays, he pays no attention to his old friend. Finally being an upperclassman, he's learned his position, and enjoys it. But it's not quite as easy at home as it was at school to suppress the fondness he has for his old friend.

I'm good with either role here, and hopefully I've left you enough room to fine tune either of the characters and their relationship how you like. I'm thinking they did some sexual exploration with each other in their teenage years, but that doesn't have to be the case. This would be a cool plot to throw in side characters with (the mother, maybe a fiance, etc), as well as moving through WWI with these two characters.

2. (warning, in this plot I am preferential to playing the younger son. but if you adore this plot and really want to play him, I can take the other character) If he had seen what was coming, Will Hasting wouldn't have been so keen on seeing his father and older brother leaving for America. The sinking of the Titanic had, without any warning, thrust onto the youngest child and second son of Lord Hastings a title and responsibilities he had never wanted. William Hastings was the black sheep of the family, preferring to spend his time in London, gambling, partying, going to shows and races and all of this in less than respectable company. He had various lovers, and none of them were women, so to find himself in the urgent position of marrying and producing an heir, along with the responsibilities of running an estate, was a nightmare.

Into this can come your character. Maybe a gambling buddy, a former lover, a servant in the household, someone looking to take advantage of a young man with a lot of money and power that he does not know how to handle. We can further develop this plot around who you want your character to be. Since this starts in 1912, it would be perfectly natural for it to progress into WWI, though we don't have to make it a focus if you don't want to.


3. epistolary role play: I've always want to try a WWI role play in the form of letters between two men. The whole role play doesn't have to be letters (I think that would get a bit difficult), and posts can be part letter part narration, but I think it would be a fun thing to try. Especially two men who are lovers, where their only contact is in letters, which are not at all private (letters were censored). And then we could mix it them meeting when the soldier is on leave, and returns after the war (or perhaps during it, because of some injury). This could mix in any of the class pairings I've listed above, and we'll probably have to work out their relationship a bit before we start. This plot could also be a subplot in any role play/plot containing WWI.

android x creator:
this is really just the story of two people falling in love, only one of the people isn't really a person and their relationship borders on incest. Sci-fi version of the myth of PYGMALION, where a sculptor falls in love with the statue he's made, prays for her likeness in a real woman, then kisses the statue and she comes to life. Part of creating the android is to push the limits of science and technology, to make some meaningful advance in the world (to win prizes and get money), but in the end the creator is working on the android on his own. The creator is lonely, which in the end was his real motivation behind making the android. For whatever reason, he no longer wants human company (some trauma, death of a lover, just fucking sick of everybody, etc), so he starts to create the android. He pours all his time and effort into it, until this project becomes his whole life. Into creating not just a machine, but a person.

The android isn't human, but he's more than just a machine. On the exterior, no one can really tell the difference. His skin feels as real as human skin, he moves and breathes (even if he doesn't need the oxygen) just as naturally as you could want. The andriod isn't just a machine, he wasn't built to be just a machine. The creator didn't just dump a database of knowledge into his hard drive, he programmed his android to learn and grow, to form his own ideas from his experiences in the world. However, he also has an acute awareness that he is not human, that there's something missing. He can't feel everything like everyone else can.

long and rambly, I tried to leave it kind of open ended, just wanted to get down my ideas of the basic shape of this pairing. I feel like I'd be pretty okay playing either character, though I'm interested in trying the android.

teacher x student (or other)
I've mostly just got a character I want to use for this, who can be a high school music teacher or give private music lessons. He was a pretty big time concert violinist until he got in a car accident, severely injuring his shoulder, so he can't play like he used to. His pregnant wife also died in the accident (but he's very openly bisexual, this wouldn't be a tearing him out of the closet sort of deal). I'd like to set this during his recovery. If you want, your character doesn't have to be a student, could go for some other school role, or maybe doctor, physical therapist or something. Again, I'm just really jonesing for this character.
doing this one atm

peter panesque have a taker for this atm, but if you're dead set on it, I'll still consider
So here's the deal. A while back I saw this Merlin Fairy Tale AU post on tumblr, inspired by Peter Pan (SOURCE; fyi, there are no spoilers if you're not up to date on the new season, and if you don't watch Merlin, you won't really be lost--it's a love story between two men, that's all you have to know). Obviously it got me inspired to do a role play, and that's why we're here.

Here's the gist of what I want:

The basic idea I had from this was you have a prince or something (your character), who somehow ends up in this alternate dimension outside of time. Neverland. Nobody ages, nobody dies. It's a sanctuary for children, mostly boys, who don't want to grow up. They forget their lives in the real world, their families, their homes, and whatever hardship or trauma prompted the fairies to bring them there. It's just fun and carefree, and full of magic.

Which is pretty much everything the prince never really had, being the firstborn son, destined to inherit the throne and all the power and responsibility that comes with it. Somehow (not sure how yet xD) he gets sucked into this world. And when he's there he meets this young man, the leader of the Lost Boys. He's the biggest proponent of getting into mischief all you can and never having any responsibilities and never ever growing up. He shows the prince this magical world, which, like the fairies, he has control over through magic. And they sort of end up falling for each other. Only, love is one of those stupid grown up things that the young man doesn't go in for (so he claims). And all the while, the prince knows he needs to go back home, that he can't live like the boys do. Eventually the prince decides he has to go back, and finds a way, but the young man misses him and follows after him, and finds himself in the real world (where, at some point in the distant past he lived, and had forgotten about until he returns). And coming back sort of really sucks for him. And then.... MORE STUFF HAPPENS. the end.

I hope I've left the prince's character open enough for people c: And, maybe some things to think about for his character: how accepting he is of magic? (this is a big deal on the show, if you don't know it), how comfortable with his own sexuality? probably more stuff I can't think of, those are just what I'd keep in mind for the character. Time period, I have your character as a medieval prince, but if you want, we can change that. Even go modern, if it floats your boat.



religious leader x errant youth
So, this would take place in a little village where everybody knows everybody and pretty much nothing is private. Which means the minister/priest/what have you has to go pretty far out of town to get his rocks off at some sleezey gay club and keep his secret life actually secret. In civilian garb, where nobody's ever seen him before, he picks up a young man, rents a motel room for a few hours and they have a good, slightly drunk time. He returns home, back to life as usual, and has one of his congregation ask him to come meet with her grandson/nephew/something who has been sent to stay with her to help him get his life together. You can probably see where this is going now: preacher comes to her house to meet the young man, and finds the guy he fucked a few nights ago. Shit ensues.

I could go for either role in this. It could be set modern, or it could even go mid century. By young man I'm thinking at least 18+, probably a twenty something, who could be an independent adult but can't get a job or something and turns back to family for support, and they're going to put him through hell first. Religious leader could be on the younger side, or he could go 30s-40sish.


don't do:
canon fandoms, books, tv shows, etc, though you might be able to tempt me into Middle Earth or Firefly verse or something.

I'm making a search board specifically for this plot, because I so desperately want to do it. Here is my main search topic, if you're interested you and me are irresistible.

General role play details:
Limits: None
Length: I like long, but anywhere between 200-500 is nice for me.
Frequency: depends on length, but at least once a week, maybe every other week when my muse is low. More frequent when the role play gets my creative juices juicing.
Medium: email (samwisederp@gmail.com)

I think that's it. Feel free to check out my normal search thread (again, here) for more plots and genres and stuff about me and my role play habits. I think I've rambled on enough here!

If we go shorter, (200-300 words) I do expect faster posts. Once every day or two. I don't want to wait two weeks for a 200 word post. In the end, I really don't do word counts on yours or mine. I know what short and long posts look and feel like, and that's what I'm judging on. Try to match length too, or tell me ahead of time if you're not into long posts because I don't want to keep trying to push out these really long detailed posts if you're not going to give me the same back. But I'm really not against shorter posts. But as you can see I tend to ramble so longer posts happen. Srsly this paragraph is like an essay already. shuddup.

Also, if you've contacted me before, especially in the last few months, and I stopped replying/never started the role play or anything, feel free to contact again if you're interested. I had a lot of real life/family/work shit going on, so role plays got forgotten.
