Hello! I'm looking for a partner for a 1x1 storyline that I've had a huge, huge craving for. I've been trying for quite some time to find a partner to fill this craving, so I would really, really appreciate any interest! ♡
In a nutshell, I'm looking for a dark romance/action story with a modern supernatural setting. The vibes I'm looking for are more along the lines of an anime or video game, though, than, say, the TV show Supernatural (I know it's very popular, but I'm looking for something with a completely different vibe). The central pair of the story will be a male demon and a female human, and I would like to play the human. The story will involve the demon being spat out from Hell onto Earth, where he will meet the human, and the two will eventually forge a contract together. I would love to involve plenty of Christian mythology—Hell, eternal damnation, Satan, sin, etc. I'm also very open to adding angels to the story later down the line and even moving towards something like a Revelations-esque apocalyptic scenario. I'm definitely looking for it to be dark and epic.
I would prefer to RP onsite, although I'm also open to using Docs! I don't like using Discord for actual RPing, but I'm very happy to plot and chat over Discord. I love fun OOC chatter; I'm the type of person who loves making playlists and moodboards, thinking up headcanons, and just fangirling over our characters in general. I'm hoping for a partner who brings a similar energy! c: This may also go without saying, but I would like this RP to be longterm. I have a deep, deep craving in my heart for this story, so I would really like it to be one that we can work together to turn into something fun and long-lasting, not something that stalls and dies within the first few posts.
I'm only looking for anime/illustrated images for our characters, no IRL FCs, please. Other than the medium, though, I always try to give my partner as much freedom as possible to pick an FC they want to use. In the past, I've had partners who were very controlling about FCs, and it's just not something I enjoy. I do have some more specific guidelines of what I'd like for the characters and their dynamics; usually I'm a lot more go-with-the-flow, but this specific dynamic is something I'm really aching for.
Please click on the circles on the bar above to navigate to tabs with some more information! And if you feel at all interested in this story, please feel free to either post in here or PM me. I would be so, so happy to hear from you! ♡
A 1X1 SEARCH - ROLES
the demon - male
You will be playing this role. This demon holds—or held—a prestigious position in Hell, being the son of a powerful archdemon who works closely with Satan. After disobeying his father, however, he was severely, violently punished; after disobeying him again, he was banished from Hell and exiled to Earth in a weakened, vulnerable state. His only hope for restoring his true strength and surviving among the other demons banished to Earth is to forge a contract with a human, feeding off of the energy of their soul in exchange for agreeing to fulfill the human's deepest desire. As a demon, he grew up in a culture where cruelty and violence are both commonplace and encouraged; although he has physical and mental scars from the violence his father inflicted on him, he has no frame of reference to consider what happened to him as what it really was: parental abuse. Maybe it's the compassion of a human he needs to finally come to terms with his own scars.
the human - female
I will be playing this role. This human has a haunted past, troubled by the memories of abuse in her childhood home that led to her growing up faster than most. She has a complicated history with faith and the idea of demons; as she began displaying behavioral disturbances as a symptom of trauma, her zealously religious family feared her to be possessed by a demon and sought out treatment through a priest rather than a doctor. As an adult, she has cut all ties with her family and is doing her best to build a new life for herself, though escaping the demons of her past is easier said than done. Her heart's deepest desire is precariously balanced between the light—finding a way to heal herself and live a truly fulfilling life—and the dark—making those who hurt her bear the same wounds, feel the same pain. Maybe it's the rage of a demon she needs to find out where her heart truly lies.
a 1x1 search - important notes
I work full-time from Monday to Friday, and, unfortunately, I'm not permitted to use any devices while I'm on the clock, so there is a sizable chunk of time each weekday when I'm not available to chat. However, I have a half-hour break at work, and checking Discord is always the first thing I do when I go on break, so I will be able to communicate then, and I'll also be online after my shift ends! Even though my schedule is busy, though, I'm very good at making time to write, and you'll never be waiting long for a post. I can shoot for every day if I really push myself; otherwise, every other day is a pace I can comfortably manage (and I'll always be up for OOC chatter, even if my brain is too fried to put together a well-written post). The longest you'll probably have to wait for a post is two to three days.
Please note that this RP is going to involve some dark topics such as abuse. The central relationship between our characters won't be abusive, but abuse is meant to be part of both of their backstories. There will also likely be quite a bit of violence because of the presence and nature of demons. I'd love it if we could explore angst in unflinching ways. There will also be healing, of course!
I have some lore about the way I envision demons to work in this story written out here. Please note that this lore can be tweaked if there are things you want to add and/or change! I can also go into further details than this if you ask!
This is important, PLEASE read it. The FC I use for my character is very small and petite. She is supposed to be dainty-looking and to resemble a doll. This could also probably result in her being mistaken for younger than she actually is, though she is very much an adult. Her smallness is not sexualized or fetishized, and there is nothing to read into other than "she's just very petite" and that I like art styles that emphasize cuteness. I've been using this character for years and never had any issues come up until recently, and it was upsetting for someone to assume something that never even crossed my mind when I was making her. I'd like to avoid this kind of thing happening again, so PLEASE only contact me if you are comfortable with the FC I use. Here are some images.
I'm interested in the story, though I'm honestly not confident in myself to be the best fit for the role. I really do want to try, though, but given how passionate this craving of yours seems, I don't want too disappoint it. Still, I'd greatly appreciate to get a shot at it, as I haven't roleplayed in quite a while.
My preferred method of contact is through Discord. Just let me know if you've sent a request or something.
bump! Searching really hard for a long-term, dedicated partner for this story—I've had a lot of false starts where the other person lost interest, and I'm really, really hoping for someone who will be invested and committed over a long period of time. ;v;
