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.

Hey there, Barbermonger people! I'm once again looking for a roleplay partner. I'll cut to the chase, because I'm sure nobody here wants to hear a lot of fluff.

About me:

+ Older than 21;
+ Work full time;
+ Write solely through email;
+ Don't use IM;
+ Post roughly once a day;
+ Like longer, more involved posts;
+ Strongly prefer to write females;
+ Ditch-friendly (just let me know so I can reopen the request);
+ English is my second language, but I've got a decent enough grasp and welcome correction.

What I'm looking for in a partner:

+ Older than 21;
+ Understands real life gets busy;
+ Is okay with writing and plotting being done through email;
+ Posts in a timely fashion (anything from once a day to a one or two times a week is fair game);
+ Likes to write longer, more involved posts (I'd say about 3 paragraphs, though if we're on a quicker back and forth posts can be shorter to get more out of the session);
+ Is open about telling me if you don't want to do this anymore - no questions asked, no guilt-tripping from me;
+ Doesn't need to be a native English speaker, as long as there's a decent grasp on grammar and spelling.

If you're still here after all that, check below for what I'm looking for in terms of pairings:

Historical pairings:

- Regular (non famous) woman x gay actor in a lavender marriage;

- Jack the Ripper x unsuspecting wife;

- Mafia boss's wife (witness protection) x police officer looking after her;

- Male servant x younger (newly orphaned) mistress;

- Broke aristocratic girl x rich commoner (arranged marriage);

- Young prostitute seeking to be reformed x pastor or Catholic priest seeking to help her;

- Female friends who fall in love (Victorian, or another historical setting); (taken)

Harry Potter pairings:

- Young Sirius Black x Muggle OC;

- Young Tom Riddle x Heir from another house (OC);

- Young Remus Lupin x Muggle OC;

Supernatural pairings:

- Alpha werewolf x human mate;

- Vampire stalker x human;

Real life pairings:

- Regular (non famous) wife x famous husband (a sort of a price-of-fame plot, I have reasonably detailed ideas for that);

- Partner x partner struggling with addiction (alcohol or illegal drugs);

- Actor x actress (pressures of being a couple in the spotlight);

- Older college professor x younger (older than 21) student;

- President x first lady (Evita - movie - inspired);

- Honest (female) cop x crooked (either gender) partner;

- Criminal's daughter x High ranking police officer's son or daughter;

- Stalker/kidnapper x victim (can be anyone he's created a fantasy about);

- Rich man who needs to marry and have a child to get his inheritance x poor woman who's willing to help him as (initially) a 'business transaction';

- Roommate x roommate (old friend, needing a place to crash);

- Toxic partners (verbal, emotional, physical abuse) who can't seem to part ways;

I will probably update this often, but that's it for now.
If you're interested in any of those pairings, drop me a line at missjaysouza@gmail.com, letting me know what you're interested in, and I'll get back to you!

Hello there, people!

I'm looking for a partner for a plot I have been craving. Before I hop into the plot, though, I'll get a few things out of the way.

About me:

+ Older than 21;
+ Work full time;
+ Write solely through email;
+ Don't use IM;
+ Post roughly once a day;
+ Like longer, more involved posts;
+ Ditch-friendly (just let me know so I can reopen the request);
+ English is my second language, but I've got a decent enough grasp and welcome correction.

+ Doesn't need to be a native English speaker, as long as there's a decent grasp on grammar and spelling.

If you're still there after this list that probably makes me sound high maintenance, here's the rough outline of the plot I'm looking to write:

All right, bear with me here. I know this is trashy, dramatic and all that jazz, but well. I'm trash, sorry. I was born trashy and I'll be trashy for as long as I live.

Character 1 (male, single) desperately wants to have a child, but he physically can't. He's pretty depressed because the woman he loved left him due to his inability to give her a child, and he's at a very low moment in his life.

Character 2 (female, equally single) doesn't want a child, but she's pregnant with one (I'm thinking early enough that she's not actually showing) and has no idea what she'll do with her life, as the father of her baby is either married or just not supportive and told her to go take a hike and not come back.

1 and 2's paths cross when 2 is involved in some sort of accidentally that (temporarily or permanently) wipes off her memory of recent events, including the fact that she's pregnant and whose baby it is. 1 then decides, well, I'll take this girl home and tell her it's his baby - that will work out, right? We can decide what happens from here. If she slowly remembers, remembers everything all of a sudden, never, remember after she's fallen for him, etc.

I'm looking for someone to write character 1, and probably have this happen a little to the past, when it wasn't very easy to just adopt as a single man or have a baby through IFV/surrogate, whatever else. Details can and should be discussed.

If interested, please drop me a line at missjaypanic@gmail.com, and let's get this going!

Thank you for reading!

A little about me so you know who the person on the other side of the screen happens to be.


* I go by Shades or Jay.

* Time zone: GMT -3 (Brazil)

* Age: 35 (prefer to write with people around my age range, or at least over 21)

* Work full time, English is my second language. First one being Brazilian Portuguese.

* Write in 3rd person, past tense.

* Post length varies, but I'm really fond of details and longer posts.

* A big stickler for grammar. Very open to being corrected when I get anything wrong (please, do correct me).

* Ditch-friendly, just let me know you're ditching so I can reopen the idea. No questions asked.

* Write solely through email, usually reply within 24 hours (may take longer on the weekend).

* Don't use any messengers to roleplay, sorry about that.

* Roleplay almost exclusively female characters.


I think all of the important info is up there, so let us move on to the plot, shall we?


Behind closed doors: Basically, this is a modern plot. My plan is to have a covertly arranged marriage. The guy is a member of a very wealthy family, and the girl is not, which makes the whole idea of marriage between them odd. Once the story starts progressing, at some point, we'll find out that the guy's family and the girl's are both involved in something big (either natural or supernatural), and his family wanted to secure her and mix their blood for the next generation before another family could. Drama, mystery, possible supernatural elements, emotional conflict.


If interested, please PM me - I have notifications on, but for some reason I don't always get them! I can provide a writing sample, and would like you to provide one too, if possible! Thank you for reading!

Detective and possible killer - I plan on doing the whole noir detective style, with my character being possibly a killer (she says she isn't, but all signs point to it) and looking for the detective to find out who really did it. Or, alternatively, she did kill the victim but wants his help covering it up, because she did it for a really good reason, such as escaping abuse or protecting her children, in case she has any. Though I'm much more fond of her being framed, we can go either way. Romance, danger, and crime, all wrapped in the Roaring 20s.

If interested, please PM me or reply here! I can provide a writing sample, and would like you to provide one too, if possible! Thank you for reading!

Name: Shades

Site: From All Walks of Life

Site Description: Walks is a real life site set in a fictional small town near London. It has all kinds of people, from royalty to the homeless, and everyone finds their place in the sun.

Character Description: So, I have a character there, Mrs. Melissa Parker, and her husband, Mr. Quinn Parker. They're a celebrity couple - him a football player, and her a model. They love each other dearly, but there's plenty of love to go around. So, they're looking (or better, we, the writers, are) for someone else to make their family life even happier. This lucky lady would be 'married' to them in all but name, and have as many rights over everything they own as they do. She would be more of a friend for Melissa, and an actual wife for Quinn. NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT A CHEATING PLOT - THE COUPLE WILL NOT BE SPLITTING UP FOR THIS NEW PERSON.

Desired PBs: Taker's choice

Other Information: The site is very chill, no activity requirements and no limit on how many characters one can have. We make a roll call every other month, but all anyone has to do is let us know they're still around, even if they haven't posted with their characters.

Contact Information: e-mail (missjaysouza@gmail.com) is the best way to reach me, or PM here. Please don't reply to this thread, as for some reason notifications don't always come through.

Thanks for reading!
