The Overlord

About Me
  • I’m 20 and (please be over 18, if there’s any romance at all I get uncomfortable with minors. Platonic is fine! Be at least 16 for that!)
  • I won’t respond to messages on this thread. I might send you a PM if I see it, but there is a high chance I’ll miss it!
  • I play both male and female characters but am most comfortable with males
  • I’m an aroace disaster. I can’t do smut and stuff for my life, but I kinda got a grip on romance. Preference order goes platonic, MxF, MxM, FxF.
  • I can write a lot when I get excited. 250 words is probably a low low minimum. It’s probably closer to 500+
  • I’m a chatty person! I may take a while to warm up to you, but I live OOC talk in rps
  • I’m pretty active and can post frequently (multi-times a day) I don’t expect that though!
  • I'm a dark person, this means I have no limits. This can somewhat show in my darker roleplays. In historical settings, I'm cool with romanticizing some things, but I still want darker themes true to the context. The same with serial killers and paranormal type roleplays. Just be careful with mental illness though. If you're going to use it, just make sure to research it a lot.
  • For fandoms, I primarily play OCs and am more comfortable with those. However, there are a couple I MIGHT be willing to play in the right context. I’d prefer to stick to OCs though

Original Plot Ideas I have

(Kind of just a skeleton I’d love to flesh out!)

Muse A and Muse B both come superpowers in a world that is on the brink of war. All across the globe society finally begins to crack and war looks inevitable. That doesn’t mean anyone won’t try and stop it.

Muse A is barely old enough to hold office but is far beyond brilliant. Smart and focused, they rose through the political scene only to find their first major designation as ambassador to Muse B’s country. Their main goal? To try and negotiate the end of the conflict before it even begins.

Muse B, much like Muse A was extremely skilled at their job. (Spy, diplomat, foreign leader, military leader, ect. You can pick!) Upon hearing of the new ambassador, it was evident that his age could be a tool to work against him.

(So basically a skeleton! This could go in a lot of directions and I’d love to work it out with you!)

This is a major plot skeleton, but something I am wanting to explore. In summary, it sort of combines Corpse Bride, Muder: Soul Suspect, and my plot Ghost of New Orleans. I am explaining this one horribly, but I have a more detailed idea plotting out in my head.

Muse A was a prominent homicide detective from the late 1940's. They were young and ambitious with a head full of combat knowledge, which ultimately led to their demise. Investigating alone, fate finally caught up to them. Next thing they knew, they woke up in the precinct as a shadow unable to leave.

Muse B, from the modern era, has always been more perceptive to the world around them to the point they started to tune it out. Much like Muse A, they were young and a little too headstrong for their own good. New into town, their first job is to follow a series of copy cat killers to the source.

After a long and late night, Muse B happens to, quite literally, stumble into Muse A. A little shocked by the encounter, Muse A decides to roll with it and before long, the two are working on solving the case of the century

(This is kind of pulling off of Napoleon with a sort of alternate history theme mixed in) (This is historical FICTION not a textbook so it doens't have to be 100% accurate)

Muse A was one of the stars of the Swiss Guard. Born into an elite family, there wasn't much else. Entering the Swiss military, he quickly showed extreme potential, desperate to give him a battlefield, he was handed over as an officer to the Swiss Guard and therefore at the mercy of the French King Louis. He bounced around to the French colonies mostly trying to quell the pending Revolution. Fairly successful as a infantry commander, his next mission was in the heart of Paris itself. Stationed to guard the Tuleries Prison, he was one of the few Swiss survivors taken captive by the Revolutionaries.

Muse B has completely found themselves caught up in the new wave of ideologies. Sick of the wealthy and their power, they were one of the first to stand up. THe first sign the Revolt was real was when they were interrogating prisoners at the Paris City Hall. It's in their interrogations that they meet the young Swiss sergeant. Already witnessing the death of his fellow Swiss Guard, Muse A makes an outburst pledging loyalty to the Revolution. Initially a survival tactic, Soon he falls under strict watchful eye of the Revolutionaries. Necessity eventually gives to pure ambition. Muse A sees an opportunity to claim power, and he's willing to take it. Soon he realizes that ambition may not be the only motivating factors pushing him.


Muse A is the lone heir to one of the most successful serial killers in US history. For decades, his father tore through the country ripping apart everything in his path all while assuring any trails always ended up cold. Muse A's mother died when he was young (of natural causes) and when he came of age, he was pushed to take his father's legacy. It was something he never wanted. Although that instinct ran deep through his veins, he could always hold back. That meant as soon as he was old enough to get out of town, he did. Breaking free from the chains of his bloodline, he never looked back.

Muse B is a member of the Order of the Moon: a guild and brotherhood for those with a taste for blood. Almost introduced since birth, they have lived by the Order's teachings, as well as by their protection. Almost confined to the organization's lodge, they devoted their lives to the books and records of those who walked before. And almost as long as they had been a member, they were fascinated with the nameless being known as the Crow. Unlike all the other membership records, the Crow doesn't come with a face. Just a stack of files and a trail of victims. Over the years, and with the advancement of forensics, the Order is slowly dwindling. The Crow had become something of Muse B's role model. They were the one person who managed to stay in the shadows and though they want to keep the illusion up, they devoted their life to figuring out who the rightful King of the Order is. Years later, their search leads them to a tombstone and a forgotten grave. That leads them to the the forensic pathologist that is just trying to move on with their life. After a blunt attempt at getting Muse A to join the fading order, Muse B realizes they're just going to have to push Muse A into giving into their own dark desires

Muse A’s family had practically everything. Born into high society with a family member in Parliament since practically the beginning, his life has been laid out since before he was born. That being said, he never fit in the typical high society mold and was known for his “partier” attitude. Already knowing his future in England, he took the change and ran to the colonies for a little “life experience”.

Muse B’s family had nothing before they arrived in the colonies and after they got there, they had less. Losing her parents at a young age, she was left at the mercy of the colonial streets. Despising the people who took everything and continued to take everything, it was so surprise she threw her hat in with the rebellion the first chance.

So somehow that I’m too tired to think of, Muse A and Muse B’s paths cross. Somehow A gets committed to the ideas of the revolution and either works as a double agent type thing or a spy.

No matter what happens in the world, whoever grabs the the upper hand is the one who controls the world. It's a battle that has been raging as long as there has been civilization. It's a dangerous game where only the best survive, and even that isn't a guarantee.

Muse A and Muse B were the same side of a different coin. Working for two completely different agencies, they both had a reputation as being the one agent you didn't want to cross. You also certainly didn't want to get caught in the crossfire between the two. If there was a large game at play, the both of them were surely to be involved. In the middle of one of the largest jobs of both of their careers, Muse A suddenly goes quiet. Taking advantage of the situation, Muse B goes to make their move. Everything seems to go smoothly until Muse A shows up at their safe house door step beaten and bloody with a burn notice taped to their name.

1947 New Orleans, Louisiana.

When Henri Olivier finally left the war shredded shores of Europe, he didn’t know what was next. Unlike many, he quickly found his footing in the military and absolutely thrived. An OSS operative, he made his career of finding out things no one wanted him to know. Already decorated and facing promotion, the shot from the heart of Berlin ended it all. They probably should have kept him, but fate had other things in mind. Jobless and nearly homeless, the America he left in 1941 certainly wasn’t the one he returned to. Desperate, he found himself, mostly by accident, on the footsteps of the New Orleans police department. It was a career that his OSS training allowed for him to excel at, so much that they didn’t hesitate in bypassing standard promotional protocol. A little less than three years in, and suddenly he’s on the verge of busting the crime circuit of New Orleans wide open.

Muse B’s family stretches as far back as the city itself. As strong of a reputation that their family has, Muse B’s is even stronger. Everyone around the city knows them as the untouchable girl. Powerful, confident, and wealthy, they’re the type people sell their souls for, but Muse B has always been more interested in their own tunes. After her parents death, ultimately it was up to her to pave her own path. In a world largely ran by the men, she didn’t let it stop her. Besides inheriting the family name and fortune, she also got her claim to the family business. Singing in the family's jazz club since practically birth, she wasn't a strange face under the neon. Even moreso than when he parents were in charge, the clubs became even more of a success. Sure the clubs went under a massive reform, but it helps when you manage to unify every organized crime outlet in the city. Smuggling, trafficking, mod money, drugs, and anything else you can think of, it comes through her. Insanely smart, nothing links back to her. At every corner there’s always a man to take the fall with another one behind them. Even without the city payoffs, she was sitting comfortably, that is until the stubborn rookie detective starts poking around

(Sorry this is rambling on! I wrote this pretty late and on mobile. Basically MC is the former intelligence officer turned detective and yours is the queen pin of the entire New Orleans underworld. The role play will basically be MC getting close to YCs activities and YC trying to stop them. Of course there is the obvious romance to throw them off/keep track of the investigation. But we can get creative with hitmen and YC framing mine and having him arrested. Paying off cops to destroy evidence. Ect! Basically like every noir detective story with the pretty femme fatale singer)

Years had passed since humanity’s own ignorance and greed threw the world into flame. Like the ticking of a clock, bombs erupted leaving nothing behind but radiation and devastation. Those who survive managed to do so by sheltering underground. Those who were in bunkers lasted a little while, but those who made it to the metro stations? They thrived. Well thrived as much as you could in cramped conditions while being hunted by mutated creatures.

Anyone who went to the outside world was considered insane. If it wasn’t the beasts that hunted them, they usually fell victim to the harsh weather or the poison in the air. These people who made trips to the surface, they were known as stalkers.

Like many, Muse A was born underground. Their entire life was spent staring at metal walls and living with no personal space. When they were a teenager, desperate for money, they joined on to a merchant group as a guard. After seeing the open sky for the first time, they never looked back. Officially becoming a stalker, they were outside multiple times a week. Soon it became more frequent to the point that Muse A only came back down to the stations to sell off supplies and stock up.

Like Muse A, Muse B was also born below ground. They grew up hearing stories of the outside world, but they never cared. The attacks to their station were frequent enough that they didn’t want to see what the world had in store. They also knew that eventually they would have to succeed their father as leader of the station and such mentality was more harmful than good. After another wave of attacks, Muse B was forced to flee, not knowing the tunnels they ended up gasping for breath on the surface as the tunnels caved in behind them. Lost and wandering for somewhere secure, they find their way to a building that seems safe enough, a building that happens to be Muse A’s temporary camp.

(Muse B could have a set mission that they need to do, they could be just trying to get back underground, or just straight up survival)

Blame the My Chemical Romance romance reunion for this one.

Basically, it follows Hey There Delilah into Skater Boy. The two go their separate ways after high school. He decides to pursue his music career and moves off for that and she goes off to college. Frustrated with his seemingly lack of success, she dumps him. Well years down the road, he's successful.
