hey hi hello. this search is for the elder scrolls (particularly tes v: skyrim), dragon age, and maybe possibly a little original fantasy. if those don't interest you, idk what to tell ya.

i am:
25
female
lazy lit +
active
able to play multiple characters and genders

you are:
over 18
lazy lit +
active-ish
able to play multiple characters and genders

email is my preferred medium though i will consider gdocs. i prefer to use a separate email thread for ooc as well though i have skype for planning if you prefer. my intro generally range from 700-1000 words per character and my replies anywhere between 300-600 depending on what's happening in the scene. i love doubling/tripling/etc. and will happily play a character of any gender in any kind of ship you desire and will likely request a m/f ship in which i play female in return. if we're not doubling i'll play one of my female mains. i don't have many limits outside the ordinary but i'm one hundo percento not interested in pwp or indulging someone's kinks and fetishes.

those are the basics. everything else we can probably sort out as we go.

for the elder scrolls, i am primarily interested in skyrim. i have some familiarity with oblivion and i have a good grasp on the lore but if you want to involve canons it's probably gonna have to be skyrim. that said, i'm open to playing just about any canon. i would generally prefer not to play any argonian or khajiit characters, but you can attempt to persuade me. for myself, there aren't all that many canons i'm super into (ulfric, ralof, hadvar, a couple others i can't think of) and i'm totally down for oc x oc as well. i'm personally not interested in playing as the dragonborn or really delving into that storyline but if that's something you're interested in for your character then i'm open to it. i am, however, very interested in exploring and expanding the civil war storyline, though it's definitely not a requirement.

with dragon age, i've played all three games and would prefer you had as well. i can play any canon you want with the exception of solas and iron bull. my fave canons to play against are alistair and cullen, though i'm happy to play against others as well. i'm more interested in canon x oc for this, though oc x oc is cool as well. au's and canon divergence are all good with me. i have a few ideas and i'm happy to hear yours.

finally, for original fantasy i'm mostly in the mood for something medieval-ish (ie. along the lines of tes and dragon age) but i'm open to other sorts of historical fantasy. i have characters in mind but no concrete plotlines or setting and i'm therefore pretty open to your ideas. just please don't ask me to shoehorn a character into some very developed, very set plot with pre-determined roles. in terms of media we could draw inspo from for something original, obviously tes and da, but i'd also love to pull from the witcher, dark souls, history channel's vikings (obv not fantasy for the most part but y'know), lotr, merlin, the banner saga, assassin's creed, asoiaf/got, etc. idk. just throw ideas at me.

here are some thing i am deffo not interested in:
anthros/furries/"beast" races (argonians, khajiit, etc.)
you asking me to play your op hero's busty waifu
modern/futuristic fantasy
steampunk
anything along the lines of master x slave/pet
vampires/werewolves as a central focus

if you're interested, send an email to xtheirin@gmail.com. when you get in touch, please let me know what sort of roleplay you're after (fandom/original), any plots/characters/ideas/etc you have in mind, and your preferences (limits/doubling/etc). thanks for reading and hope to hear from you.

craving:
sad, slow romances
80s/90s/modern

i am:

- a piece of garbage
- 25
- canadian (GMT-4)
- of the female persuasion
- lazy lit +
- able to play more than one gender
- tired af

looking for partners who are:


- 18 +
- lazy lit +
- active
- able to play more than one gender
- tiredness optional but appreciated for commiseration purposes

-i'd ideally like this roleplay to take place over email but gdocs are also a-ok. i have skype and discord for planning but you must email me first and ask for them.

-m/f is my pref but i'm open to all pairings. if we're doubling and you have a m//, f//, or nb ship in mind i'm happy to oblige.

-i personally prefer to play multiple mains, especially if we're doing canon x oc. i treat my male and female characters equally when doubling and would expect you to do the same. if you want to stick to one main each that's fine but chances are i'll stick to one of my female oc's.

-i have few limits outside the ordinary (hard kinks/sexualization of minors/graphic or romanticized sexual assault)

-i enjoy romance as an aspect of roleplay but i am neither looking for pwp or fluff fests.

on to the good stuff: i don't have much in the way of plots. i'm open to your suggestions. i've compiled lists of keywords, eras, and songs for inspo. feel free to mix and match.

keywords:
small town detective drama a la broadchurch, wallander, midsomer murders, etc / seaside towns where it always rains / love triangles / twin peaks esque small town murder mystery / seasonally inappropriate christmas-themed roleplays / london as a setting / nyc as a setting / anywhere but america as a setting / jetsetting / shitty idle secret history esque university students / motorcycle clubs a la sons of anarchy / rock n' roll on the road lifestyle / children of celebrities who are just shitty social media darlings / you using tom hiddleston or james d'arcy or matthew goode as a face claim / me using any damn body you like as a faceclaim / one night stands becoming more / love hate relationships / more than friends and less than lovers / adapted jane austen / adapted shakespeare / best friends falling in love / old flames / characters over the age of 25 / characters over the age of 30 / troubled marriages

eras:

ancient rome / medieval europe / tudor england / renaissance italy / revolutionary france / georgian england / regency england / napoleonic wars / victorian england / old west / la belle epoque / wwi / 1920s-30s / wwii / 1950s-90s / modern

song inspo:

sleep on the floor / the lumineers (the song & the music video)*
closer / the chainsmokers & halsey
ever since new york / harry styles
do you remember / jarryd james
more to come...

*-i have a semi-plot for this.

and here's what i'm absolutely not interested in:
fantasy
sci-fi
post-apocalyptic/dystopian
pure fluff
animals/furries/anthros/kemonomimi
krp/jrp
omegaverse
pregnancy plots
anything along the lines of teacher x student
anything along the lines of master x slave/pet
family/neighbourhood plots

essentially, feel free to suggest as long as all the characters are over the age of 18 and it doesn't conflict with my no-no list.

if you'd like to be in touch, send me an email (xtheirin@gmail.com) telling me what genres/ideas you are interested in and a little about yourself and your preferences (doubling/medium/etc). thanks for reading and hope to hear from you.

hi and welcome to my latest desperate attempt to sate my roleplay cravings.

i am:

-25/a lady/canadian (gmt-4)
-lazy lit +
-active
-capable of playing multiple genders and characters

you are:

-18+
-lazy lit +
-active
-capable of playing multiple genders and characters

-email is my preferred medium for roleplay but i'm happy to use gdocs as well.

-i have skype and discord for ooc. just include your add info when you email me.

-post length varies but i generally prefer a casual word count (>500 words per character per reply).

-i write in third person prose and would like if you could a well.

-m/f is my preference but i'm open to all pairings. if we're doubling and you have a m//, f//, or nb pairing in mind i'd be happy to do it.

-on that note, i would personally rather play multiple mains, whether that means having four or more main characters in one story or splitting it off so we have two separate stories with two (or more) pain characters each. i treat my male and female characters equally when playing multiples and would expect you to do the same. if you want to stick to one main character each i will likely play one of my female oc's.

-i have very few limits outside the obvious. sex, violence, gore, language, etc. are all fine by me. i will not, however, engage in roleplays with mature themes with characters under the age of 18, nor will i engage in roleplays that focus on, or romanticize, abusive relationships or sexual violence.

-i enjoy romance as an aspect of roleplay but i'm not looking for pwp or pure fluff.

my number one craving right now comes from the fact that i have done nothing but binge on UK detective shows for days. i'm dying for something along the lines of broadchuch/wallander/hinterland (y gwyll)/midsomer murders/etc etc etc. basically, small town or rural area that either has an alarmingly high crime rate or has one/a spree of highly sensationalized crimes and lots of juicy hidden secrets. i have the beginnings of a plot for this, though we don't need to use it.

however, i'm open to all kinds of original stuff right now. here's a messy list of keywords that you can pull from or not. you can also feel free to send me pre-written intros as long as they don't include characters under 18 or solely feature your female oc unless you intend to double.

- seaside towns where it always rains / tight knit communities hiding terrible secrets / anything set to or based on a hozier song / anything set to or based on a decemberists song / power couples / seasonally inappropriate christmas-themed roleplays / london as a setting / nyc as a setting / anywhere but america as a setting / jetsetting / shitty idle secret history-esque university students / motorcycle clubs a la sons of anarchy / you using tom hiddleston or james d'arcy or matthew goode as a face claim / me using any damn body you like as a faceclaim / love hate relationships / more than friends and less than lovers / adapted jane austen / adapted shakespeare / best friends falling in love / old flames / characters over the age of 25 / characters over the age of 30 / troubled marriages

if you've gotten this far and you'd like to get in touch please send me an email (xtheirin@gmail.com). let me know any ideas or characters you have in mind, any keywords you were interested in, and a little about you and your preferences (doubling, limits, post length, etc). thanks for reading and hope to hear from you!

from the maker of the dragon age & mass effect search, a brand new exciting product: an original historical search! that's right, folks, just what it says on the tin. if you're looking for fandoms or anything set after the end of wwii this is not the thread you're looking for.

i'll try to keep this simple and quick: i'm 25/canadian/in gmt-4 and i work from home so i'm online way too much and like to fill my time with writing! i'm an avid consumer of period dramas and video games, youtube, art, and netflix. i have a tendency to waste time making aesthetically pleasing pinboards and bad playlists and i talk about my cat too much. that's all there really is to know.

i prefer to roleplay and ooc over email. you can suggest other mediums, though i'm fairly averse to messengers. i will give out my skype for planning purposes if it's imperative to you we plan over im.

i am looking for partners who can be fairly active. i can usually respond once a day as long as replies aren't overly long, but 2-3 replies a week is all i really require.

i'd prefer a somewhat casual word count. i tend to fall behind on super long replies so ideally i'd like to keep my replies around 500 words per character, give or take. you are, of course, free to write however much or however little (within reason) that you like.

mxf is my preference though if we are doubling and you would like a mxm or fxf pair that's fine by me.

on that note, i enjoy / encourage doubling though i do not require it. i play males and females with equal effort when doubling. when not doubling, i prefer to play female.

i have no problems with mature themes as part of the roleplay. my limits are about what you'd expect (no hard kinks/no sexualization of minors/no sexualized or romanticized rape/abuse/etc).

my partners must be 18+ regardless of the content of the roleplay. i'm a 25 year old adult and roleplaying with minors is just a no for me.

i enjoy faceclaims and prefer to use real people (actors/models). feel free to request a faceclaim from me. you are not at all obligated to use fc's.

since i don't have any hammered out ideas i'm just going to list concepts with a few keywords. feel free to make suggestions based on what i've listed. i have next to no interest in fantasy (supernatural is fine in doses) so please don't come to me with suggestions of medieval fantasy or steampunk or anything like that.

i'm open to receiving pre-written intros from you. i would prefer that the intros be relevant to the sorts of things i've listed here (that is, historical in nature) and that what you send doesn't solely feature your female character.

GENERIC PERIOD DRAMA (18th-early 20th century/georgian/regency/victorian/western europe)
fallen fortunes / marrying for money / romantics / arranged marriage / class difference / old flames / crumbling ancestral estates / gothic heroines and byronic heroes / napoleonic wars / orphans / old money vs new money / young widows or widowers / bored aristocrats / grand tours / secret love affairs

GOTHIC HORROR/ROMANCE (18th-19th century, western europe)
(literal) skeletons in the closet / family secrets / faded aristocracy / murder / codependent siblings / ghosts / housekeepers who know more than they seem / crumbling manors / isolation / trauma / hidden identities / heaving bodices / psychological terror / madness / asylums / byronic heroes / tough as nails ingenues / tyrannical guardians

WWI / WWII* (western front/home front/england/france/america/etc)
homefront / french countryside / english countryside / train station goodbyes / love letters / young widows / badass military chicks / wounded soldiers / axis soldiers falling for allied civilians / french resistance / adultery / warbrides / readjusting to civilian life / deserters / missing soldiers returning
*i will not do anything dealing with concentration camps/nazi x jew/anything along those lines

THE JAZZ AGE (1920s/america/western europe)
gatsby-esque excess / the lost generation / ex-pats in paris / fitzgerald flappers / rich kids in
the underworld / luxury travel / aristocrats in fast cars / early hollywood / scandal / affairs /
literary circles / artists / yachts and champagne

16TH-19TH CENTURY NORTH AMERICA (colonial era/exploration/american revolution/civil war /western expansion/etc etc etc)
isolation / deep dark woods / superstition meets religion / religious zealotry / puritanism / "witches" / sacrifices / small settlements where rumour and fear spread like wildfire / elders who know too much / epidemics / little red riding hood in puritan dress / forbidden sexual desire / lost in the wilderness / orphans / young people facing a brave new world alone / hansel and gretel in the colonies / disease wiping out settlements / pagan worship / survival / seances / revolution / civil war

OLD WEST (19th century/america)
outlaws / corrupt lawmen / saloons / gunslingers / being on the wrong side of the law for the right reasons / bonnie & clyde-esque / criminal empires / oregon trail / blood debts / rival gangs

MEDIEVAL* (5th-15th century/europe)
knights and their ladies / jousts / powerful queens / civil war / arranged marriages / feuds for the throne / holy wars / bastard princes / plague / battle / kingmaking
*i would probably prefer we do some kind of medieval au and either make up our own
fictionalized kingdoms or just otherwise go off-script. as i said, i'm not really interested in
medieval fantasy so unless it's extremely low fantasy please don't ask.

again, if none of these eras speak to you, feel free to make a suggestion. anything from the ancient greeks to wwii is more or less fair game.

if you've gotten this far and you would like to get in touch just send an email to xtheirin@gmail.com. please give me an idea of what genre(s)/keyword(s)/etc you're interested in and let me know your preferences (doubling, where you want to rp, limits, etc) when you get in touch. thanks for reading and hope to hear from you!

▸ hi and welcome. this search is exclusively for the bioware series dragon age and mass effect (1-3). if you're not thirsting for either of those, you may be disappointed.

▸ i am

▸ over 20
▸ AST (GMT-4)
▸ active
▸ lazy lit +
▸ able to play more than one gender
▸ tired

▸ looking for partners who are

▸ 18 +
▸ lazy lit +
▸ active
▸ able to play more than one gender

emails are my preferred medium for both ooc and ic. i can be persuaded into using skype or possibly some other messenger for initial planning but i don't make a habit of being online too much.

when i say lazy lit, i mean my intros are usually 800-1200 words per character and my replies usually 400-700 words per character. i'm not really interested in going above this atm. samples are here if you're into that.

if you're someone who can only get out one reply every two weeks or less, sorry but i don't think we'll click. consistently waiting multiple weeks for a reply tends to make the roleplay lose momentum and me lose interest. i totally understand when things come up that mean replies will be slow for a while, but typically, i would like to get at least three responses per week.

i enjoy and encourage doubling though i do not require it. i play both males and females when doubling, though one of my mains will always be female. my pref is m/f but if you'd like to do a m// or f// or nb pairing as well, that's fine by me.

limits are about what you'd expect (no sexualization of minors, no romanticized/sexualized abuse, no hard kinks). mature themes are fine by me as is smut* but i'm not looking for pwp or kink/smut-based roleplays. let me know if you have any limits/triggers/squicks before we get started.
*-i actually wouldn't mind something on the smut-heavier side atm though it 100% still needs to be balanced by an actual plot.

dragon age

there are way too many ships and characters to list all the ones i am interested in, so i'll make it easy: i will play any canon character from any of the three games/dlc with the exception of iron bull, and loghain. i would like to play against cullen, alistair, anders, or maybe solas. my preferred ship is canon x oc (or canon x pc as in cullen x inquisitor, alistair x warden, etc), but i'm open to canon x canon. i will likely play one of my protags (warden/hawke/inquis), but if you have a non-pc oc you want to kiss a canon, that's a-ok with me.

i'm theoretically open to oc x oc as well, though it may take a good premise and an interesting plot to reel me in.

mass effect

original trilogy only. open to au's or pretty much anything. willing to consider playing just about any canon you want. would love to play my f!shep against garrus or kaidan. i love the idea of a twin!shep au. i want to hear all your ideas and theories and oc's and everything else. just hmu idk.

▸ i'll just leave it at this because everything else is just stuff that can be figured out together. if you're interested send an email to xtheirin@gmail.com. please ensure you include what sort of roleplay you're looking for, any ideas you might have, characters you have in mind, etc. thanks for reading and hope to hear from you!
