hiya! my name is ava and i've been roleplaying for about 3-4 years now, but have not done it in AWHILE so i'm sorry if i'm rusty. anyway, as everyone else, i'm looking for a RP partner, so i'm going to talk more about what i would like to roleplay and stuff like that! please read through so we can have an enjoyable RP.
BY THE WAY: click the circles to see different tabs (first circle: intro/about, second: rp genres & basic ideas, third: fleshed out ideas, fourth: preferences & other notes). this scrolls, too!
i'm seventeen so if that makes you uncomfy, you can switch out of this now! i'm okay roleplaying with someone 18-21 but no more than that please. i understand if someone 18+ is uncomfortable roleplaying with a seventeen year old, though. au revoir! i also wouldn't exactly feel comfortable roleplaying with someone who is under fifteen, sorry. BY THE WAY: i'm typing in all lowercase now but i swear i'm literate and can capitalize... this is just how i type oorp. also, adding this on - i normally only like to roleplay with a few people at a time bc i get overwhelmed easily. usually five or six partners is the most i'll do!! sorrie
you don't have to read this if you wouldn't like, but here is a more in depth about me! again, hi, i'm ava. i use she/her pronouns, i'm seventeen and going into my senior year of highschool. i enjoy things like astrology (cancer sun, gemini moon, sag rising), cats, music, fashion, makeup, vintage things, etc. i text talk a lot oorp so i'm sorry if that's annoying haha i can't help myself, i've been on the internet since i was eight (sigh). i use a lot of smiley faces, exclamation points, everything lowercase, 'lol', 'lmao', etc. as i said i love music and would totally want to talk about it oorp if you want! feel free to ask for recs. my favorite video game atm is stardew valley and my favorite tv shows are twin peaks and that 70s show. my timezone is EDT and i live in 'murica. that's all for now! :-)
i'm mostly just interested in romance RPs (OC x OC - not fandom, sorry). we can incorporate other things (i.e. mystery), of course, but i'm really only interested in roleplaying romance bc i'm a hopeless romantic and very lonely. i'm chill with fxf, mxm, and mxf. anyway, i'm going to list some stuff i'd be interested in roleplaying! they're pretty basic but i'm sure we could build on them or change them up a little :-) bold means i rly wanna do it, unbolded means i'm neutral, and crossed out means i'm not interested in doing it at the moment - but if you rly wanna do something that's crossed out we can try and work it out. PS: i'm open to almost anything... these are just ideas!
a plot that takes place in the 60s/70s/80s! i think it would be fun to incorporate references from one of those decades!
fake dating! our OCs are in a fake relationship to make one of their exes jealous.. (or something different, we can chat about it!)
enemies to lovers babeyyy (if you're interested we can talk more about actual plot lol)
catholic school boy/girl x bad boy/girl
our OCs are in a band together
roommates! our OCs are roommates
high school setting (i.e. student x student or teacher x teacher,NOT student x teacher, gross)
our OCs go to camp together OR are camp counselors for the summer
our OCs work together (baristas, waiters/waitresses, bartenders, etc)
neighbors! our OCs are neighbors (in an apartment complex or houses -- preferably apartments though!)
etc! tell me your ideas, and we can build on it together!
fleshed out ideas
here are some longer/more fleshed out ideas! code: bold means i rly wanna do it, unbolded means i'm neutral, and crossed out means i'm not interested in doing it at the moment - but if you rly wanna do something that's crossed out we can try and work it out. PS: i'm open to almost anything... these are just ideas! feel free to message me your own ideas!
this would probably take place in the late 60s/very early 70s as that's when the 'hippie' era became more popular. imagine there's character A, a rebellious teenager or person in their early twenties who wants to explore the world in their van (y'know, the stereotypical camper van), do a lot of drugs, meet a lot of people, go to concerts, etc. then there's character B, who is more of a goody-goody. somehow, they're friends with character A, and don't want them to go and live this crazy life. character B wants character A to stay with them in their small town; they're good friends and character B knows they probably won't see character A ever again if they leave. so character A proposes that they run away together, and do all this crazy stuff together. initially, character B is like what the hell no way. but after awhile of dealing with the pressure coming from their parents, they decide to just do it. character B wants to take more risks in life, and knows that becoming a businessman/woman like their parents want them to be isn't "them." so they go in character A's van, and travel the world, doing all this crazy stuff. they probably have to run from the authorities (character B's parents want them to come home) while they are traveling. but other than that, character B feels free. in the beginning they still have their goody goody ways, but that quickly gets punched out of them as they spend more time with muse a. just lots of crazy stuff. initially character A and character B are just friends, but character B slowly but surely starts to fall for character A, even though they know character A wants to live a fast life and wouldn't want to settle down with them.... but seeing character A get with other people makes them jealous and wants so badly to be with them, but it feels like they're out of reach...and character B doesn't want a "casual relationship"... they want the real thing. this would probably be kind of angsty and slow burn!
(this would be with a lesbian or gay couple) this takes place in the early-mid 60s, which was obviously a pretty homophobic time. not as bad as some decades but sure as hell not great. maybe there are two (hetero) couples: character A with their husband/wife and character B with their husband/wife. they're all friends and are newly married (probably a year or so into their marriage) and both character A and character B are...not heterosexual. but they got married to someone of the opposite sex because of internalized homophobia and because of their families and society's views on the lgbt community. so maybe character A and character B hang out a lot, and their husbands/wives just think it's because they're good friends, but in reality they're secretly having some sort of affair. this one is a BIT dramatic and i'm not always into the cheating/affair plots but i feel it is kind of justified since it takes place in a prettttyyy homophobic time period. this would probably be a more angsty / drama filled plot.
character A is a lead singer in a band with their friends (we can decide what musical genre). they’ve been making music for a few months now, but none of them know how to play [insert instrument] and desperately need a new member. although character A is reluctant, considering the entire band have been friends since childhood and they don’t want an added member they don’t know, A decides to let the band pick/find a new member who knows how to play [instrument]. they find their new member, character B, and B immediately becomes a friend to the entire band and they all love him/her, which makes character A jealous because that should be THEM!!! they should be the one in the spotlight of all their friends. // we can change this up of course! it can be slow burn or immediate attraction to each other
character A and character B are both part of very wealthy families. character A wants to be exactly like their parent/parents: a wealthy businessman/woman with a lot of power. deep down they know this isn’t them, though. while on the other hand character B outwardly expresses their disdain toward what their family wants them to be. character A and character B’s families are rivals but both characters end up meeting at a party/gala one night (make it F A N C Y) // we can decide what to do with that. do they start talking right away without knowing who each other is? or do they know who each other are and hate each other? or something else! we can chat about it.
character A and character B are teachers at a highschool/middle school. character A is an english teacher while character B is a math teacher. now we all know math teachers are the devil but most english teachers are the best. they may be fake deep but they’re understanding. anywho, this is exactly how character A and character B act: B is the unforgiving math teacher and A is the favored english teacher. they’ve only seen each other a few times and have never spoken. they soon meet, though (we can decide how) and they don’t exactly like each other but character A finds B’s stubbornness and snark to be cute. A begins to talk to B more, even though B is not interested in even a friendship, but bothers them nonetheless. lots of snarky attitude and joking around but they do end up actually falling for each other. but one thing is stopping them: the fact that they are coworkers and, at least to character B, it is forbidden to be in a relationship with a coworker. maybe they DO get together but character B gets insecure and so they break it off and there’s hella tension???? hmm, we shall see.
this is a prompt that needs some work. i still would really love to do this, though. would want this to be with a fxf or mxm couplet, but i’m not dead-set on that. this takes place in the 80s. it’s 2 characters who used to be best friends but their friendship fell through. one of the characters needs a tutor though, so they ask the other who is very smart. it’s a bit awkward at first, but the more they spend time with each other, the more they begin to wonder why they aren’t friends. they’re in their senior year of HS and the character who is the tutor feels like they’ve wasted the entire 4 years of high school to schoolwork and nothing else, and thinks that it’s over now. there’s no way they’re going to change their ways. but then [character who is being tutored] helps them in having more fun! that’s basically all I have right now. i just want a ton of 80s references and a slow burn but overall fluffy roleplay. if we do end up roleplaying a lgbt couple, we’ll obviously have to include period-typical homophobia and internalized homophobia. anyway! we can expand on this of course or change it up!
best friends who have been in love forever but don’t realize it until character A gets in a relationship that ISN’T with character B (the best friend).
character A and character B are coworkers but do not like each other AT ALL (OR — one has a big crush on the other but character is oblivious or is a “hard to love” type of person). by the end they do fall for each other but don’t know how to express it/are too prideful/afraid. slow burn would be a nice touch to this plot! // enemies to lovers type thing
character A had a very dysfunctional/abusive family growing up and always had to follow the orders of their parent/parents. they have never known affection or actual love (no first kiss, they’re a prude, give the most awkward hugs, etc etc) then they meet character B; B was raised in a very loving household. they meet (however/wherever we’d like them to meet) and character B is immediately attracted to A and character A is attracted to B as well but doesn’t express it, so character B assumes they are playing hard to get. // we can decide the rest! dates, awkward kissing, and maybe even angst will basically fill the entire story. it’s slow burn but they like/are attracted to each other since the beginning (if that makes sense)
character A gets invited to go out with friends to a club/bar on a friday night. reluctant but somewhat intrigued and excited (they are a homebody), they agree to go but after a few minutes of being at the bar/club, awkward as ever, character A’s “friends” ditch them. not wanting to abandon these friends, character A stays at the club for a little bit longer, drinking away their sadness and anxieties (we can remove this part if u want; maybe character A is not a drinker?), and ends up sparking a conversation with the bartender, character B (OR — someone else at the bar *character B* notices character A and decides to start a conversation. character B’s personality can be shy and they don’t go clubbing often like character A, or are a social butterfly)
here are my roleplay preferences! please read them!!
i'd prefer my partner to write more than a paragraph. so 10+ sentences, please (at the least). i'm into more detailed role-plays, not one-liners. whatever you write, i will try and match!
i only write in third-person, and i encourage you to do the same.
i dunno if people use face-claims on here (images) but i'm only interested in roleplaying with realistic face-claims! no cartoon face claims or anime faceclaims, sorry. nothing wrong with that, it’s just not what i’m interested in at the moment.
please please please tell me if you're getting bored (dear GOD please tell me) and no longer want to role-play with me OR are uncomfortable roleplaying a specific topic. yeah i might be a bit sad if i was enjoying the role-play but it's better than being ghosted, lol. i will do the same.
if you know you're not going to be very active or not online at all for a week or more, please tell me! & if you don't reply in 5 or so days (without telling me you're not going to be active) i'll give you a little bump, and you can obviously do the same with me! i'm forgetful sometimes. if i give you the bump and you still don't reply after a week.. sorry but deuces!
please have decent grammar and spelling! i always try my best with grammar and spelling, but will make errors at times, which is fine! you don’t have to be perfect, i’m not either. i would just like you to know the difference between: you’re/your, their/they’re/there, where/wear/were, etc. please put effort in when replying! and if you're not a native english speaker, that is fine as well, just tell me so i'm aware! :-) + if you’d like an example of my writing, just ask!
in mxf roleplays, i normally like playing the male! but i am fine with playing the female if that's what you want. whichever you'd rather!
character forms / sheets
i am open to, really, any type of form. i usually like using forms or at least getting to know a small bit about your character before roleplaying. even if it’s just name, sex, appearance. i don’t always use face-claims, but if you would like to use face-claims, i will gladly try and find one for my OC. again, realistic face-claims only please. for forms, i either write a small paragraph about my character, including: name, age, sex, sexuality, appearance, interests and/or hobbies OR a very small form that just includes a bit about the OC, so that you can get to know them while we roleplay! but, as mentioned, i am honestly open to anything. just talk to me about it! btw, i've become more interested in using code so we can use it if you want! if not, that's chill too :-)
talking oorp is preferred! whether it be casual chat or chatting about the RP. i'd love to get to know who i'm roleplaying with! but just a note, i'm not the most social person so don't be surprised if i'm not an easy conversationalist. i also am starting school on august 31st, so if we start/have a RP, just know my replies might not be every day. i will try my best, though! if not, they'll be every other day or every two days. if i know it's going to be longer than that, i will let you know.
thank you for reading! initially i was not using a code, but now i'm using one! it's NOT mine, by the way. i believe it is mobile friendly, but if not, i will find a mobile friendly version. && credit is linked below! anyway, please message me to start a RP! i'd love to start something new with someone (at the moment i only have a few active RP partners). bye for now!

you're my four leaf clover (i'm so in love, so in love)
