hi there! i'm evanescent. i'm 19 years old, but i don't mind roleplaying with 16-17 year olds. as long as you're not, like, 12 years old, i'm good lol. i'm an english major, but i take online college classes, so i have a lot of time on my hands and not much to do with it. i'm looking for literate partners who will be active, someone who will bring their own creativity to the table and plan with me because it's no fun if it feels like it's one-sided. i promise i know the rules of grammar, i just like using lowercase when i'm writing ooc because i think it looks cool and i gotta maintain ~aesthetics~. anyway, i think that's all, and i look forward to roleplaying with those of you who are interested!
so, like i said, i'm looking for someone who is literate and will be active. i'm not looking for perfection, obviously, but it's just annoying trying to read something that has a bunch of grammatical errors in it. my average replies vary in length, but you can typically expect 3 good paragraphs from me at the minimum, so i'd like to think i could get the same from you. i understand that real life comes first, because there will be spans of time where i'll get so busy that i barely have time to breathe, but let me know what's up, otherwise i'll just assume that you've ghosted and aren't interested anymore.
i'm thinking that we'll use threads to 1x1 these, and do our chatting/planning over discord?? i'll probably do lots of talking ooc, just so i can get to know you and vice versa. i tend to go overboard when planning stuff, like i'm talking moodboards and playlists for my characters and working out every cute little detail of their relationship, so feel free to tell me to shut up if i get annoying lol.
realistic faceclaims only, please. it's what i'm most used to/comfortable with, and it would feel weird if you used art for your reference and i used a real person for mine. kind of like michael jordan in space jam. i'm still not sure what that movie was.
just a head's up: i'm better at playing female characters (because i myself am also a female), so that's mainly what i'll be doing here, but we can double up if you really wanna play a girl. i'm fine with doubling.
since i mainly play female characters, all of the pairings will be either mxf or fxf. i don't know, i've just recently developed a talent for playing edgy lesbians lately, so i'd like to utilize it. if you don't like big titty goth girlfriends, there's the door, sweetie c:
THE REBEL PRINCESS AND HER KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR In an attempt to tame their wild-spirited daughter and the sole heir to their throne, the king and queen send their daughter away to be locked in a tower. A rogue favoring an enemy kingdom discovers this development and plans to kidnap the princess in order to start a war between the two lands, but the king and queen learn of his plot and decide to hire someone to rescue the princess before this can happen. Not only are they hoping to save the princess and avoid a war, they hope that this knight will prove to be a worthy suiter for their daughter. The princess falls in love with the knight, alright, but little do they know that under that helmet is girl. This plot would obviously require a fxf pairing. I'd prefer to play the knight, but I'd be alright with being either role.
LOVERS BY DAY, ENEMIES BY NIGHT This is not your average superhero story. A seemingly average couple who live together in a small New York apartment have more than their fair share of secrets. They both have jobs as successful authors, but when night falls, they assume their alter egos as they take to the city—one of them, a superhero, the other their arch nemesis. Neither of them are aware that they've been battling each other for years, but secrets can only be kept for so long. I can't remember where I saw this idea. I think it was tumblr. I don't know, it was a long time ago. This could be a mxf or fxf pairing. I'd prefer to play the villain as a female, but I will play the superhero if I must.
STRANDED Both characters wake up on opposite sides of a remote island with no memories or who they are, where they are, and how they got there. One thing's for sure: they now have supernatural powers, but something seems off. They think they're alone, but they stumble across each other by accident (or luck, depending how you look at it) and decide to team up and come up with a plan to get off the island and get their memories back, which may be harder than they thought. This could be a mxf or fxf pairing, possibly even platonic. I'd be down to play either part as a female character.
THE X-FILES An unlikely pair team up to investigate a string of mysterious supernatural occurrences. One of them is strictly logical and doesn't believe in things such as ghosts and aliens. Their partner, on the other hand, very much does. They had a strange and unexplained encounter in their childhood, spend too much time watching science fiction movies, and are now a full-blown conspiracy theorist. They make for an interesting duo, but the two different perspectives help them get a lot done, believe it or not. This could be either mxf or fxf and most likely platonic. I'd be down to play either role as a female character.
HOW STEREOTYPICAL The year is 1980-something, the peak of high school stereotypes. There's the popular crowd, which is where character a resides. She's an all-around goody-goody, the golden girl of the school. She's smart, friendly, and a member of the cheerleading team. Character b runs with a more dangerous crowd. He's the school's resident bad boy. He drives too fast, listens to loud rock music, and smokes in the bathroom between classes. The two of them aren't the type of people to give each other a second thought until one day, their paths cross and things are never the same. Suddenly, they can't stay away from each other, and it's causing quite the rift in the school's social hierarchy. This pairing would have to be mxf just so I can have my dream of a 1980s bad boy x good girl trope. I'd play the golden girl.
DON'T GO OUTSIDE AFTER DARK Moving to a new town can be scary, but moving to a new town riddled with all sorts of supernatural creatures is even worse, especially if they don't like you. Moonrise Ridge is a small town riddled with the likes of witches, werewolves, and vampires. They don't always get along, but for the most part, they lived in tense harmony, that is, until a family of unaware humans moved in. Most of them become angry when they are forced to conceal their secret identities, but a sympathetic vampire befriends the family's human teen, and gradually, a few of the other supernatural beings side with them as well. Together, they protect the human from the chaos that comes with living in a town full of angry halloween movie characters. Is this based off of Twilight? Absolutely. I'm sorry. I watched it a few days ago and it's permanenty engraved in my brain. This could be a mxf or a fxf pairing. We'd have to double some with this one. I'd prefer to play the vampire as a female character, but I'd be okay with playing the human.
