If you're reading this, it means you're kind of interested in doing an RP with me. Great! However, there are a few personal rules and guidelines I go by, so please take the time to read through it to make sure that I am a suitable RP partner for you and we can effectively make some magic happen.
Here are some pro-tips when initiating an RP with yours truly:
◄ Just because I want to do a one-on-one, private message RP with you does not mean that I want to cyber. While I do not mind sexual content in a RP, I do require that it is tasteful and, more importantly, relevant.
◄ Excite me. Lavish me with the well written word. Just because you know how to spell, use proper grammar and know where the punctuation marks go doesn't mean that you're a good writer. I admire creative and interesting writing styles. When doing an RP, I prefer to write in the third person, as it should be.
◄ I do not do fandom RPs. Plain and simple. I like to create something original between two people as opposed to working in a 'pre-made environment' with 'one-size-fits-all' characters. On top of that, I don't want to take a crap all over someone else's creation by tailoring their personalities to my liking. It's just selfish and it's just gross.
◄ I will not do boring RPs. This mostly includes 'slice of life' RPs. Real life is mundane as it is, I like to write something up that's creative, bold and adventurous.
◄ Just because there is a romantic involvement between characters in the story does not mean I'm in love with you. I don't want to seem frigid but I prefer to keep writers separate from personal interaction and remain straight to the script.
◄ I do respond often and I will notify you if there is a reason as to why my posts are slowing down. I require that a partner contribute as often as I would, keeping up a good pace. If an RP starts to dry up and I start to lose interest, I'll be sure to let you know.
◄ Generic anime pictures that have been stolen from their artists or from a stock image site is a complete turn off. People who use stock images as references for their characters lets me know that they lack the creativity and articulation to describe their own characters. It takes away from the goal of having an original RP.
◄ Please do not god-mod. Part of being a good RP partner is that you have an awareness of your partner's writing and a perception of what exactly is going on in the story by the details. It's simple reading comprehension. Besides that, god-modding makes you look like a douchebag.
◄ Pairings such as 'master x slave', 'teacher x student', 'brother x sister' and all of that sick, twisted crap is not considered a genre. Get it right. Anyhow, I don't play by 'pairings'. If I get these PMs, prepared to be blocked.
I know this seems like I'm asking for too much, but please bear with me. I've sifted through a ton of failed RPs because I haven't made my guidelines very clear in the past.
I hope this information has been helpful and that it has inspired you to start an RP with me as opposed to scare you away with my tall order of requirements. Don't be shy, please PM me! If you already have an intro in mind, by all means, send it my way. All the better.
