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.

SORRY BUT I'VE GOT PLENTY OF RPS NOW!


sooo i want to try a new-ish idea. i’ll list fandoms and genres below like normal but i want to set up characters based on personality types. since it’s the one i’m most familiar with, i’m envisioning this with MBTI types. if you have another personality sorting thing you’d rather work with though, i’m flexible.

so the way this works is when we’re making characters, we tell each other what type we want our characters to be. for instance, i might make an istj and then my character’s traits are built off of that and it also helps you, my partner, get an idea of where my character’s gonna be coming from. and then we can get to think about interesting personality combos? like does an infj work well with an estp?

and so on. i dunno, i’m just kind of hoping it makes plotting and development more fun? try it with me?

RULES
- please be 18 or older to rp with me (i'm 22)
- i'm looking for mxm, fxf, and plots w nonbinary characters only
- be okay with shorter replies? sort of? i usually go for like 200 - 300 words after introductions and stuff
- if you wanna do an ot3 or ot4 or WHATEVER polyamorous relationship god please tell me i'll be so happy

as for genres and stuff …
i’m super open! so open! if you have a craving, run it by me and i can probably get excited about it.


GENRES / FANDOMS
HARRY POTTER
    mostly marauders era. i'm such a sucker for remus/sirius. i'm also pretty down for james / sirius or james / remus. or something with REGULUS BLACK. i love rping them in school, post-school or even in a completely au setting. i've been craving marauders band au for like a year so that in particular would be make so so happy. sooo hit me up okay?
MARVEL UNIVERSE
    i haven't recovered from the winter soldier and i need like... cute aus with stucky ok. i really, really need it. feed my need for fluff.
BABY SUPERHEROES / POWERS
    something where people are just discovering their abilities (think any origin story super hero movie but especially x-men first class) and our characters just kinda cross paths? could be the most mundane thing or them both trying to stop the same crime or maybe one of them is even committing the crime the other one is trying to stop.
MODERN LES MISERABLES
    fuck yes please please please please please i dont even have something interesting to say about this. it could be anything. how big of a role the politics play into this is up to you but it'd be FUN
TATOO! SOUL MATES
    easily combined with a fandom or with oc's but essentially the idea is that in this universe, your soul mate has the first words you ever say to them tattooed on their body and vice versa
WINTER-SPRING ROMANCE
    especially great for slow, nearly reluctant burn. this could be anything but one plot i've been toying with is something about a FORMER student and a professor meeting up again. so it's still weird for them but not as dubious
OTHER GENRES I THINK ARE INTERESTING
    touring musicians, con artists in a fantasy or scifi or fandom world, modern royalty, modern prophets, "we haven't seen each other in years and i'm calling you at three in the morning for some reason"
ooookay that's all for now, folks! my name is jay and you can get ahold of me over email at plathology@gmail.com i have aim and stuff too but it's easier to get ahold of me by email first. remember to think a bit on personality typing for characters! i think it'll be fun! i hope! maybe!

hey there i'm jay! i've been really itching for a potter-related roleplay and i'm hoping someone else out there is too! i like plotting a lot and will probably want to keep up an ooc conversation of discussing what direction to take things. or just to chat anyway since it's pretty awkward if you never talk to your rp partner outside of rp, ya feel me?

NITTY GRITTY
    200 - 500 word replies are comfortable for me (i try to match)
    only interested in playing mxm and/or rps involving genderqueer (or trans*) characters
    i might wanna fade out a sex scene if it doesn't seem plot relevant
    let's create a plot where interaction is logical and natural, even if the characters are strangers. or let's create something where they know each other already and discuss their relationship so far.
PAIRINGS

i'm looking for any combination of the marauders right now. especially fond of sirius/remus or sirius/james. i'd like to play remus if given the option. i'm totally down to play more than one character, too. and could be talked into playing opposite an oc. i'm also super into polyamorous ships with three or four characters all involved with each other.
PLOTS / SETTINGS

i am looking for hp pairings, but i'm down to try them in pretty much any universe. seriously, as long as i sort of get how it works, we can do it. by all means, suggest something! also, i am as much a fan of established friendships as i am of aus where they don't know each other / never became friends in school.

we don't have to use the plots listed below. feel free to run anything else you're itching for by me. i'm up anything right now, so something really dark and gritty or sweet and fluffy is fine by me. but let me know ahead of time what you've got a craving for so i know how to set the mood UuU


DIRTY HIPSTER ARTISTS AU
    this one is pretty vague but just something where everybody's living the bohemian lifestyle. maybe they're at art school? i think that ends up being an interesting setting, anyway.
TWO TRIOS (REMUS/SIRIUS OR JAMES OR MAYBE SNAPE)
    an au where remus befriends severus snape and by extension lily evans, rather than james, sirius, and peter. things that could happen within this: snape doesn't go down a dark path with two friends to help guide him in better directions and teach him that not everything he learned growing up is right (muggleborns are lovely and werewolves aren't all bloodthirsty killers). without the conscience in the group, the marauders are more rowdy and have less restraint. what things stay the same and what things are different are up to us, but i think the change in dynamics would be really cool.
FIRST WAR OR LIE LOW AT LUPIN'S (REMUS/SIRIUS)
    or maybe a combo of the two? i love the idea of the tension of two people who are in love but are afraid the other person is betraying all their friends and debating what they'd risk for that person. where their loyalties lie, etc. and alternatively or as an extension, the awkward attempt to pick up the pieces of a relationship after one person's been in azkaban and the other's been thinking that they deserved to be there. plus sirius thinking remus was the spy at first and just. lots of angst but maybe paired with some cute stuff, too?
STEADIER FOOTING (SONG PLOT)
    two people who've sort of been on the edges of each other's social circles for a while, both wanting to talk to each other and make a move. but they never do and kind of drift apart. then they see each other by happenstance at a bar or a house party, neither has the nerve to start up a conversation with the other. at the end of the party (or w/e/) they kind of accidentally run into each other (sit on the porch not noticing the other or literally running into each other or something) and finally talk to each other. except neither of them has any expectations that this is gonna work out between them. they both think it's a pipe dream even though they like the other person a lot, they just seem unattainable for some reason.
COFFEE SHOP AU
    in which peter is surprisingly good at customer service, though not so excellent with actually making coffee. remus is a coffee snob, but only when people ask for his opinion. sirius spends a lot of time loafing in the coffee shop, ordering water, and flirting with anything that moves. james is (barely) working at a starbucks down the block but tremendously prefers the coffee and atmosphere of the local place.

    this is actually just one set up, there's infinite possibilities and pairings. i just really like coffee shop aus. a lot.
DURING HOGWARTS DAYS
    because who doesn't love the marauders actually doing some marauding? the caveat of this is that unless they're in their last year and we can use some roleplay magic to pretend they're eighteen, there will be no sex had in this plot until they age up.
STEREOTYPICAL AU SETTINGS
    i love this kinda thing because honestly they may seem tropey and contrived at first glance, but you can get a lot of fun things out of setting up an au and giving other characters cameos and whatnot. anyway, suggest anything you want! role reversals, setting changes, dynamics altered in some way, road trip aus, art school etc. i have a particular fondness for college settings, professors (or something with jobs), and coffee shop aus.

    i have a list of other au scenarios but since i don't have plot ideas for them i'm hesitant to post them? ask if you want them. pLEASE feel free to suggest something.
CONTACT

i won't roleplay over im. but i do prefer plotting over a messenger, though. have some ideas ready when you contact me. we'll be roleplaying over e-mail or barbermonger if you have an account here. cosl is fine, too.
    aim: plathologies (please only use this method for initial contact only if i have bumped the topic within the last half hour, otherwise replying here or an email is better)
    skype: email me first and then we can use this! sorry i'm more selective with giving away my skype
