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.

Good evening everyone. Meren here. I'm here in search of a few different roleplay ideas that are just nagging to be written but I am also down to discuss and see if we can come up with something we may both be interested in pursuing. I'll get a few of the usual tidbits out of the way, first, before moving on to the plots.

»» I have been around roleplaying for over 15 years now, so that means I am old. I prefer to write with those who are at least 18, although I am more comfortable with writers who are 21+ due to adult themes and content.
»» I don't have a set paragraph or word limit when responding. It is what it is. Just please give me more than one line.
»» I roleplay in 3rd person, past tense only and only roleplay through email because email is the easiest way for me to keep up with roleplays. I can be convinced to try Google Docs, but I have never used it so I may need talking through the etiquette of roleplaying over Docs. I do have Google Hangouts to discuss stuff in if need be.
»» My main characters tend to be female. I do not require doubling. I do f/m and f// pairings. For side characters, I play either gender.
»» Romance is not required. Let me say that again: romance is not required. I just like weaving stories, and not all stories require a romance plot. But a couple of them will involve romance because I do like romance okay? Also enjoy angst and fluff and all that jazz.
»» If we have a roleplay going, I'm not looking to replace you. I love you, dear partners. <3 I have room for a partner or two more, though, so that's why the ad is still up and being bumped.
»» I am looking for someone interested in a long-term roleplay (whether the same one or multiple lines) and who enjoys writing as well as plotting. I am also looking for someone who communicates with me: likes, dislikes, if something is causing a stalemate in the roleplay. I like talking to the people I roleplay with, getting to know you, sharing things (music, TV shows, movies, tumblr if that's your things). Just be open and honest, yeah?

Now to the plots.

»"One batch, two batch..."«

This is the highest on my list currently. Netflix's The Punisher was, simply put, ah-ma-zing. I loved it, and I especially loved Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle. I loved the chemistry between Castle and Karen, as well, and I want to explore that chemistry post-season one.
Misc: This will obviously be fandom-based from the Netflix series. I would prefer to focus on the incidents/goings on from Daredevil S2 and The Punisher. This will be a little bit of fluff at first; I'm down with bringing in Jigsaw later on and doing our own take on what may happen in season two. Or just stick to fluff and happiness with angst, of course. I just want to write this and appease my inner Punishing Paralegal OTP desires. I also enjoyed Frank and David's relationship and bonding, so I am totally okay and down with throwing David at Frank and letting the snark and sass and smartassedry ensue between them (and maybe Curtis and whoever else we want to bring in of course). I am also interested in pursuing AU lines with the characters (reversed roles where Karen was the Punisher? Kastle in a universe where there is no Punisher or Daredevil, living separate lives but brought together? Some other AU-crossover thing with some other show? Possibilities are endless here and I am game for all of them). I am Kastle trash, not gonna lie. Gimme gimme gimme.
tl;dr: I have Karen, I need Frank. Or anyone else to play Karen against honestly. Let's do this. Obviously m/f for romance.

»Shoot it in the head.«

I'm interested in possibly picking up a zombie apocalypse roleplay. Let's see what we can come up with.
Misc: So I have an original I like to use for this. Romance is fine if we want to explore that (f/f or f//). I am also down for using canon characters we play in some sort of AU scenario. I do prefer to figure out our own lore for why the apocalypse happened, maybe mixing together different ideas for ours.

»"And blood tears I cry..."«

This has always been my #1 love fandom-wise, no lie. I'm interesting in pitting my Noldor healer, Nessavendë, against just about anyone she would run in to in her time. She spans from the Light of the Two Trees to the Fourth Age, so there is a lot of wiggle room with her, generally, because Nessa is old but she is also kinda cranky. She would have more dealings with other elves and humans, not so much dwarves or hobbits, so just keep that in mind.
Misc: Oh yes, this desire is back (c'mon, it never really left). I'm down for playing her against originals and canon characters - both well-known canon and little-known canon. Platonic relationships, friendships, hateships, romantic relationships, bring it all on. Nessa can go m/f for romance or f//. This can run the gamut because of the history that Middle-earth is entrenched in (some good ol' freezing times in the Helcaraxë, perhaps? Wars? Fights over lands? It's all there). In the Second and Third Age, Nessa does travel often among the human settlements, so she isn't stuck in JUST Gondor/Rohan/Rivendell/Lothlorien, which means she has dealings with not-so-savory characters as well. I am also game for AU lines (what ifs, things like what if Fëanor's sons all didn't die horrible deaths, etc) and also putting them into a modern setting of some sort. Let's see what we can come up with for her, hm?

»"I'll leave it to the memories and kiss the wind goodbye."«

My second Tolkien offering is a little-history-known canon character by the name of Lothíriel. She is the youngest child of Imrahil, Prince of Dol Amroth, and she becomes the Queen of Rohan at the end of the Third Age/beginning of the Fourth Age when she weds Éomer.
Misc: Well, unlike the previously listed Tolkien desire, this one is a little more limited since her timeline is in the Third Age/War of the Ring era. I am game for playing her against a plethora of characters though - her cousins, her brothers, her future husband, or any original character you might have she would come into contact with which includes her future subjects (also have an original character fiance you could play if that floats your boat but he dies so...). Let's see what we can come up with, shall we? Loth is only m/f for romance plotlines but I am down for all other things including friendships. Same for Nessa, I am interested in putting her into a modern setting as well and working something out.

Bring on the fun. (While I watch The Defenders and decide if I am going to watch Iron Fist or not...out of order, I know.)

I am still looking for possible plots. If we had something going and you are still interested (and I haven't responded or you haven't in a while), nudge me. I'm always willing to begin anew.
