WHAT IS BARBERMONGER?

BARBERMONGER is a site designed to help roleplayers find other roleplayers, specifically one-on-one roleplayers, as opposed to larger roleplay games. Functioning like a pinboard, BARBERMONGER allows users to create advertisements, bump advertisements, and respond to other advertisements, without requiring them to register an account. However, registering an account will allow you to edit your posts, find your own topics, and use the private messaging system.

CRAVING : stranger things, old hollywood, romance, angst,old flames, established relationships,
shitty marriages, regional gothic, pacific northwest mysteries, small town detective drama, stranger
things, cold war-era espionage, noir and neo-noir, 30+ year old characters


INTRODUCTION
: hi i'm apotelesmaa. i'm twenty-six, a lady, and i have way too much time
on my hands. no one likes literacy labels but if i had to hazard a guess i'd say i fall somewhere
around lazy lit+ which is to say i write well and i can write a lot, but i would typically rather not. i
like to reply frequently and somewhat quickly so casual word counts (~500 words per character or
less) are more my speed. of course i won't stop you from writing as much as you want as
long as you don't mind that i might not be up to matching length.


i roleplay over email, discord, and gdocs. i might pop on skype for ooc/planning but i don't
use it regularly.


i can play multiple characters and multiple genders. i'm a pretty big fan of doubling. i will
most likely want to play a female character against a male character, but if we are
doubling or otherwise doing multiple ships, the other pairing(s) are totally up to my
partner. on a similar note, i'm not interested in solely platonic-ship-based roleplays at the
moment so if you're someone who loves platonic roleplays we're probably not gonna jive.
romance doesn't need to be the sole focus and i'm certainly not saying there can't be
platonic relationships within the roleplay, but i'm definitely gonna want some kissing.
possibly some hand-holding.


i don't have a whole lot of limits but that doesn't mean i want a "limitless" roleplay. i'm not
interested in kink-based, pwp, smut-heavy, etc. roleplays. i am open to including mature
themes in roleplays (and no, i don't just mean sex, you heathens) but i do require that you
be a mature person and be able to handle heavier topics with a certain amount of grace
(not fetishising abuse and mental illness, for example).


facelaims: i like them. i use them. you don't have to. i prefer real people for fc's (actors/
models/etc, not someone's lifted fb pics) over drawn images except in cases when the
fandom is animated. i have fave fc's and i'm always happy to indulge your fc preferences
so just lemme know.


CONTACT : shoot me an email at apotelesmaa@gmail.com. from there i'll give you my
discord/skype if you so desire it. when you contact me, please let me know what i can
call you, what genre(s) you are interested in, who wouldn't like to play and who you'd like
me to play (for fandoms), as well as your preferences on doubling/limits/medium/etc.


ORIGINAL : i don't particularly have any premade plots and generally prefer to start "from
scratch" with originals anyway. i've just listed a bunch of keywords/settings/themes/etc.
that you can pick and choose from. as i mentioned, i prefer to start from scratch with
original plots, so i'd appreciate it if you didn't come at me with something fully fleshed out.
of course, if you have an inkling or a loose idea you want to talk about, feel free. i'm fairly
chill with any historical period, though my expertise is mostly medieval to modern western
history, with a preference for 13th-16th century england, the 19th century, and the 20th
century.


seasonally appropriate holiday-centric stuff ; 1940s-60s high society (eg. the crown, mad
men) ; noir and neo-noir ; detectives ; victorian gothic ; southern gothic ; pacific northwest
gothic ; basically any kind of gothic ; 80s and 90s settings ; military or para-military
settings ; old hollywood ; angst ; romance ; cold war-era espionage ; old west ; magical
realism ; 19th and 20th century spiritualism ; the lost generation ; victorian paranormal
investigators ; 30+ year old characters ; near-future dystopias ; affairs and hotel room
romances ; old flames ; warzones ; shameless cliches ; love letters ; smokey lounges ;
terrible crimes ; immortal lovers (only lovers left alive, anyone?) ; extra-planetary
exploration ; space marines


FANDOM
: i'm going to try to make this as simple and painless as possible. with all of the
fandoms listed i am equally down for canon x oc or oc x oc unless stated otherwise.canon
x canon is iffy but you can try to make a case if you really feel like it. feel free to pitch
your au's. i don't do crossovers.


here's the key:
♥ characters i'm looking to play against
✔ characters i can play (not comprehensive, ask if someone's not listed)
✖ characters/ships i will not play


DRAGON AGE
♥ alistair, cullen, warden, hawke
✔ literally anyone who isn't listed below. just ask.
✖ solas, iron bull, loghain, fenders, adoribull, kanders
*if you've only played inquisition i'm probably not gonna be all that interested. i'm up to my
eyeballs in dragon age lore so i'd prefer partners who have at least played or are familiar
with all three games.


THE ELDER SCROLLS
♥ lucien lachance, martin septim, ???, oc's
✔ p much anyone from oblivion and skyrim, oc's
✖ n/a
*i've played oblivion and skyrim and a teensy tiny bit of teso but i have 0 familiarity with
any other titles in the franchise


FALLOUT
♥ maccready, danse, deacon, oc's
✔ any companion from fo4, butch, oc's
✖ n/a
*i'm most familiar with 4 and 3 and have played a bit of fnv


MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE
♥ loki, bucky
✔ steve, thor, pietro, peter quill, stephen strange, bucky
✖ literally any character i haven't listed as one i will play, canon x canon
*i'm very picky about marvel roleplays. please don't ask for a character i haven't listed.
please don't ask for canon x canon. please have good ideas and oc's that aren't terrible.
please. i don't watch any of the tv series and have no interest in spiderman, deadpool,
x-men, or literally anything i haven't listed.


MASS EFFECT
♥ kaidan, oc's
✔ any companion (1-3), various and sundry npc's, shepard, oc's
✖ n/a
*i've played enough of andromeda to probably be able to rp in the setting but i have 0
interest in playing as any of the canons. mostly into oc's for this but i'm willing to do
canon x oc.


PACIFIC RIM
♥ oc's
✔ oc's
✖ anything involving canons as anything other than side characgters
*i love this universe but i'm really only interested in throwing npc's into it. i'm happy to
pick up either in the earlier part of the invasion, during the film's events, or after.

STRANGER THINGS
♥ hopper, oc's
✔ jonathan, steve, oc's
✖ anything involving the kids in romantic pairings (and no i'm not gonna age them up
so you can feel better about being an adult to ships literal children), also anything
involving billy is just a straight up no. if a racist, abusive scumbag is your deal, seek
jesus.

that's it for now. if you're down, hit me up. thanks for reading and tolerating my bullshit
up to this point.

sup.

i'm apotelesmaa and i require sustenance in the form of new roleplays. here's some fun factz about me:

- i'm an aged grandmother of 26
- i'm from the frozen northern hellsphere aka canada (gmt-4)
- my body hates me and i'm currently on med leave so i'm online way too much
- i try to pump out a few replies a week though of course that depends on length etc
- advanced lit? lazy lit? who knows? i don't like writing novels for replies but i will always give you something substantial.
- i can play more than one gender and multiple characters
- on that note, i like doubling. i like tripling. i will probably want to play at least one female main against a male main, but beyond that, i'm down for whatever other pairings you want (we don't have to double but then i'll probs just wanna play a female main. you know how it is)
- i mostly rp over email, but i will also consider gdocs, discord, etc. i also have skype for ooc.
- i don't consider myself a person with many limits and many of the genres and topics i am interested in lend themselves to mature themes. therefore, i'm happy to include mature themes as long as you can be a mature person about it. and no, i'm not interested in your tickle fetish or your giantess fetish or whatever other fetishes you folk have. mature themes =/= me pandering to your kinks.
- faceclaims: i like 'em. i use 'em. you don't have to. you can feel free to request a faceclaim from me.
- i'm totally ditch friendly which is not to say i'm gonna drop you like a hot potato at some point but IS to say that i understand that people have lives, that things are way more important than roleplaying (which is meant to be a fun hobby not a blood contract between two people and their oc's), and that sometimes shit comes up or illness happens or whatever that means you can't write and that sometimes you can't express that to the person you're roleplaying with. so if something comes up and you need to drop or just go on hiatus it's totally chill and if you want to get back in touch 6 months later and pick up where we left off i'll probably be 100% down for that. in general i'll try to give you a heads up if i'm gonna be inactive for a while or if i have life stuff i need to tackle.
-despite my crusty exterior i'm actually very soft. i will pester you constantly with moodboards, playlists, headcanons, etc etc etc. be ready to patiently deal with my abundant enthusiasm for our imaginary friends.

now the stuff you care about! let's start with originals: this is just a mash up of keywords, concepts, and half-baked ideas that will hopefully get us going onto something more concrete. feel free to make suggestions but don't order so fucking far off-menu you're bringing me szechuan noodles in the red lobster. atm i'm really craving some detective/fbi/etc drama (tbh i'm always craving it). cater to me and i will love you though i'm obviously down for everything that i've listed.

horror a la stranger things, until dawn, etc / detective drama a la broadchurch, wallander, midsomer murders, etc / twin peaks-esque small town murder mystery / gothic horror like crimson peak, frankenstein, dracula, wuthering heights, rebecca, etc / seaside towns where it always rains / spooky isolated towns in the pacific northwest / surreal and supernatural / conspiracies / the 80s and 90s as a setting / nyc as a setting / london as a setting / settlers in ye olde america (1600s-1800s) encountering spooky ass shit in the untamed wilderness / survival horror / love triangles / one night stands becoming more / old flames / affairs and scandals / best friends falling in love / more than friends and less than lovers / troubled marriages / characters over the age of 25 / characters over the age of 30 / you using tom hiddleston or james d'arcy or matthew goode as a faceclaim / me using anyone you like as a faceclaim / something based ?? on practical magic

some more stuff but like specifically for detective drama:

the case that got away / cat and mouse games with serial killers / femme fatales who are more than red lipstick and tight skirts / victims who aren't what they seem / journalists in too deep / unexpected settings (alaska, british resort towns, canadian prairies, etc) / heinous crimes in tiny perfect towns / years long cases / personal stakes / no distinctions between work and family life / clashes with local law enforcement / corruption / supernatural and occult occurrences (like twin peaks, stranger things) / cases that hit too close to home

and no, i'm not gonna play a sexy serial killer for you.

i have absolutely 0 interest in doing any kind of teen drama plot bullshit. ideally all our main characters will be at least 21+ and the closer to 30 (or over 30) we can get the better.

anyway here's the fandoms i want. characters in brackets are who i want my oc's to kiss. assume i'll play pretty much anyone tho i do appreciate if you could give me a few options so that if you happen to ask for the one character i can't fucking abide (aka solas) i can let you down easy. au's are peachy keen. oc's in canon settings are also peachy keen.

crimson peak (thomas)
dragon age (alistair, cullen)
the elder scrolls (lucien, martin, ulfric, ???)
fallout (maccready, danse, deacon)
final fantasy xv (ravus, ardyn, mostly ravus tho)
mcu (mostly loki but also bucky, haven't seen thor 2 but don't mind spoilers, couldn't care less about spiderman, x-men, or the tv shows, also i'm v picky please come at me with some cool plots or characters or something???)
mass effect 1-3 (kaidan, garrus)
stranger things (hopper, that's it that's all, also i'm not shipping children together don't be gross also i'm not playing billy for you that's also gross????)

if you'd like to get in touch, just shoot an email to apotelesmaa@gmail.com. from there i can give you my discord/skype/etc if you'd like it.

sup.

i'm apotelesmaa and i require sustenance in the form of new roleplays. full disclosure, i'm currently on medical leave so while i'm around a lot and can probably ooc with you fairly often there may also be times when i'm just feeling too crap to formulate coherent sentences (sometimes i can't formulate coherent sentences when i don't feel like crap but you know how it is). that said, i'll do my level best to get you at least one reply a week and probably a lot more than that as long as they aren't crazy long!

here's some fun factz about me:

- i'm a grown up lady (i'll be 26 on november 5 so basically a certified adult)
- i'm from the frozen northern hellsphere aka canada (gmt-4)
- advanced lit? lazy lit? who knows?
- i can play more than one gender and multiple characters
- on that note, i like doubling. i like tripling. i will probably want to play at least one female main against a male main, but beyond that, i'm down for whatever other pairings you want (we don't have to double but then i'll probs just wanna play a female main. you know how it is)

﹢ introductory remarks

﹢ i'm apotelesmaa and this is my fallout ad.

﹢ so here's the thing: i've played 3 & 4. i'm really only interested in doing canon x oc when it comes to 4 and oc x oc is fine
﹢ for 3 but really i'm more interested in 4 in general. still, if you have some cool oc plots for 3 lay them on me. deets below.

﹢ now for the boring stuff.

﹢ i'm looking for active partners (2-3 replies a week is bueno) who are ok with casual word counts (300-600 words per
﹢ character per reply). right now i'm really only wanting to rp over email, but you might be able to persuade me into gdocs
﹢ if it's vital to your wellbeing. i'm not gonna say doubling is a requirement (because it's definitely not), but i sure do like it.
﹢ be willing to play multiple genders as mains and side characters. all pairings are welcome. i lean toward m x f myself
﹢ but as long as were doing multiple chars i'm happy to indulge whatever pairing you have in mind. seeing as i'm well into
﹢ my 20s, my partners gotta be 18+ to ride. my limits are few and are more or less run of the mill (as in, pedophilia/that
﹢ xxxtra kinky shit/furries/etc). i'm a big fan of mature themes and will gladly incorporate them into the roleplay but i'm
﹢ not looking for pwp. lastly, i'm super ditch friendly. i totally understand when life gets in the way and you have neither
﹢ time nor inclination to write. if you have to disappear and then wanna start up when you come back, that's totally fine too
﹢ and i don't require advance notice when things come up in your life.

﹢ glad that's over with.

﹢ stuff you care about

﹢ you probably skipped ahead to this part first. i don't blame you. if not, you have better self-control than me. either way,
﹢ you wanna know what canons i'm willing to play and which ones i wanna play against, right? let's assume you said yes.

﹢ i'm pretty much willing to play... anyone. bearing in mind that i haven't played any of the dlc for 4, i'm happy to play
﹢ whatever companion or beloved npc your heart desires. for myself, i'm partial to maccready, danse, deacon, and
﹢ hancock. heck i'd even take a swing at maxson (romantically and... physically. he's the worst). i'm not all that picky tbh.

﹢ as i said above, if we're doing some fallout 3/capital wasteland shenanigans, i'd rather keep it oc x oc. i didn't play
﹢ enough of 3 to really feel comfortable filling any canon shoes there.

﹢ i'm also willing to do oc x oc for 4, i just love the characters a lot more and would rather include them. still, i'm flexible.

﹢ so you're still here
﹢ if you've gotten this far and you would like to get in touch, send me an email at apotelesmaa@gmail.com and let me know
﹢ a little about yourself and your preferences re: doubling, limits, medium, etc etc. thanks for reading and hope to hear from
﹢ you.

hi it's me, apotelesmaa. idk why i keep making these ads but you keep clicking so here we are.

i always say i'm going to try to keep it brief and i'm always lying, but here's me actually trying: i'm looking for active partners (2-3 replies a week is bueno) who are ok with casual word counts (300-600 words per character per reply). right now i'm really only wanting to rp over email, but i can be persuaded into gdocs if it's vital for your wellbeing. i'm not gonna say doubling is a requirement (because it's definitely not), but i sure do like it. be willing to play multiple genders as mains and side characters. all pairings are welcome. i lean toward m x f myself but as long as were doing multiple chars i'm happy to indulge whatever pairing you have in mind. seeing as i'm well into my 20s, my partners gotta be 18+ to ride this ride. my limits are few and are more or less run of the mill (pedophilia/toilet stuff/that xxxtra kinky shit/furries/etc etc etc). i'm a big fan of mature themes and i'm pretty ok with smut but i'm not looking for pwp. lastly, i'm super ditch friendly. i totally understand when life gets in the way and you don't have the time or inclination to write. if you have to disappear for a while and then wanna start up when you come back, that's totally fine, too, and i don't require advance notice when things come up in your life however, if you're someone who is prone to losing interest right after intros do me a solid and, uh, don't hmu? there's no bad feel quite like the bad feel of working hard on an intro and then never getting a response as i'm sure you know. so y'know. don't be a dick.

on to the fandoms. i'm only gonna list the characters i'm interested in playing against in brackets. just give me an idea of who you want me to play when you get in touch. cravings are indicated with !! but just bc i'm not craving something definitely doesn't mean i'm not down for it.


crimson peak (thomas) !!
dragon age (alistair, cullen, anders) !!
ffxv (ravus, ignis, ardyn)
fallout 4 (maccready, deacon, danse) !!

tes iv: oblivion (lucien lachance, martin septim, vincente valtieri) !!
tes v: skyrim (brynjolf, ulfric, vilkas)
stardew valley (elliott, harvey, sebastian, oc)

you can pretty much assume i'm also down for oc x oc and au's for all of these. just hit me with your ideas.

for original, i don't have any actual, fully-realized plots, so here's a bunch of keywords and stuff. go w i l d friends.
