Hello! I'm Miss Addler, as you can probably see. I'm looking for a long term partner to engage in any one of a whole assortment of ideas, that have been brewing in my head for a while now. I do mainly fandoms but could be tempted with an original plot - my current ideas are listed below. But first...


My Expectations - Please Read | +
I am female, if my username is not already evidence of that. I feel uncomfortable playing male characters and so my main character will always be female, though I can play minor male characters as required.
I'll confess; I do like a little romance. However, I do not like romance to be the sole focus of an RP nor forced, if the chemistry clearly does not exist between our characters.
I am looking for a partner who is around high-beta standard and therefore good spelling and grammar is very much appreciated! Of course, I'll excuse the odd typo (as, naturally, I make mistakes myself) but please do try to check through your writing before you post it – or at least use a spellcheck as you go along.
I am looking for a few good sized paragraphs per post. Naturally, it may be harder to write too much during dialogue scenes, when you need to wait for my response, but please make an effort to add description and set the scene - we are telling a story, after all! Though you don't need to describe every speck of dust to me, I absolutely refuse to accept one liners. You have been warned.
Please make an effort to post as a minimum at least once a week. I value quality over speed, so don’t expect us to end up speed posting, because I like to take my time building up the atmosphere of the story.
If you can't post for an extended period of time (i.e. more than a fortnight), please warn me. Don't just decide to disappear on me. Nobody likes to be left hanging and it's just plain rude. If you're bored, tell me and maybe we can try to liven up the plot or stop it altogether; I like to know where I stand in an RP.
Please add your own plot twists! It keeps it as exciting for me, then, as it does for you!
If you've read all of this and still want to RP with me, pick an idea from below (or, if you have a burning urge to do your own plot which you think I'd like, send me the details and I'll consider that too) and shoot a post below.
The genres I'm most comfortable with - and will most likely feature heavily in the plots below - are sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal, adventure and mystery.
Within the IC of the RP, I encourage conflict as I feel it makes a plot much more interesting and gives us a lot more room to develop both characters and storylines. Don't be afraid of arguing with my character...within reason, of course...


Now for the caldron of ideas...

Fandoms
Details of most fandoms is not necessary (such as Once Upon A Time), if you haven't seen/read them before but if you do some research on them, on Wiki or something, that would be much appreciated. I have not typed out set plots as such but if you're desperate to discuss specifics before committing, PM me about a particular idea and I'll show you some of my more detailed ideas (brownie points, if you have your own ideas to add as well!).

X-Men | +
We utilise the setting, premisis and/or character of the First Class or Days of Future Past movies. I would probably agree to any RP based on mutants and x-genes, ect, but I'd be particularly interested in either using Charles, Erik, Raven, Beast, Havok, Wolverine or Quicksilver as a main character.


Sherlock Holmes | +
I am willing to utilise ideas from either the film or the TV series.
From the film series, I'd be willing to play either Irene Addler or an OC, and you'd take on the role of Sherlock Holmes, Watson or an OC. Film-wise, there are many different mysteries from the books series (some of which I have read, some I have not) that we can incorporate into the plot. I could do with someone really willing to build an authentic Victorian setting and dramatic mystery with me in this one.


Merlin | +
Knowledge of the lore isn't essential here; I'd like to place more focus on the medieval setting and the clandestine nature of magic. You could either take on the role of Merlin, King Arthur, your own suggestion or an OC, whilst I would play as either Gwen, Morgana or an OC.


Pirates of the Caribbean | +
As a POTC fan, I’d love to do an RP involving pretty much any setting or characters, including Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, James Norrington, OC; Elizabeth Swan, Tia Dalma, Angelica, OC, etc. There are plenty of routes we could pursue in this fandom, so if you are interested, we’ll decided based on our mutual ideas and interest.
Alternatively, I would actually be interested in a young Davy Jones/Tia Dalma plot, taking place before Davy Jones became the Captain of the Flying Dutchman, where we could create our own scenario for how they ended up as they did.


Once Upon a Time | +
Warning; I have only seen up to the third season. I was thinking of basing this more on the concept of the show, rather than the characters (apart from Emma and Henry, who briefly make an appearance) so we would play an original interpretations of characters.


Harry Potter | +
Whoever embarks upon one of these with me, I would ideally prefer them to know a considerable amount about the series just so we’re on the right wavelengths, when I’m mentioning Quidditch, The Daily Prophet, for example. I would be more interested in RPs involving either minor characters from the series (such Lupin, etc) or from a different generation (such as Lily, Snape). Either that, or we event entirely new characters altogether and base it merely on the Harry Potter Universe (i.e. Diagon Alley, Hogwarts).


The Hunger Games | +
I’ve not participated in a Hunger Games RP for a while, but I like the gritty conflict and (partial) realism involved and so would be willing to start up another, with the right partner. I was thinking of plots involving (the obvious) us being Game participants – perhaps from District 1 or 2, to mix it up a bit - and developing a friendship but knowing that we’ll eventually have to kill on another, or as bitter victors who develop a bond in Victor village.


Jumper | +
This RP would be based on the 2008 sci-fi ‘Jumper’, where there exists a small group of people who have the ability to teleport. OCs here, though, methinks as I haven’t seen the film for a while and can’t remember the characters so I was more thinking of utilising the concept. Either or both of us could be Jumpers, on the run from their sworn annihilators. Or we can have a jumper x hunter dynamic.


Inception | +
I've never really seen an Inception RP play out, so it'd be great if someone wanted to have a go at this with me. I'm open to any ideas, and this concept gives us a large scope for originality - I'd prefer not to use characters from the film, but fashion our own premises based on the general idea.


The Matrix | +
I'd prefer for us to basically use the premises from the start of the first film, with original character where either one or both of us is trapped in the Matrix and begins to suspect what's actually real.


If you have any original plots that you'd like to try out in the relevant genres I've mentioned above, shoot me a message and I'll probably be game.

I may add more, as my brain churns out new ideas and cravings…

I also enjoy X-men or Marvel universe, but prefer original characters rather than attempting to RP canon characters.

If you are talking of the BBC Television series, I could do this. Again, not a fan of Canon characters and do appreciate the clandestine nature of the use of magic.

I share your interest in HP. This series consists of a few of the only books in my life I have ever read more than once. I generally tend to have something of an eidetic memory, but I find the HP series to be quite entertaining. Here's my story on HP.

My sister and her son, who is about turn 23 in March read the series as they were being published. My nephew is about the same age as Harry Potter. At that time, I was very busy with work and real life. I did not have time for books. As the years rolled past, I would hear people say, the books are so much better than the movies. But I totally loved the movies. I did not want to ruin my movie watching enjoyment by reading the books.

In 2008, the eight movie was complete and I took up the mantle to read the books. Since, I am a very busy person anyway, it took me six months to read all seven books; about a month book. In September of this year, I started reading them again. I am currently reading Goblet of Fire. My 9-year old daughter read Sorcerer's Stone in two months time.

So yes, I know what Quidditch is and the Daily Prophet. I know where the Owlery is and who Nearly Headless Nick is. So, I am quite versed in the HP universe, but with the other ideas, I'd rather not do Canon characters. I have an HP universe character in my Cast of Gunther's Gang named Tyresius Jordan, who is a Charms Professor at Albus Dumbledore University.

I Love this movie! Again no canon characters.



The Harry Potter idea is my favorite of all your suggestions. Professor Jordan was involved in an RP created by Sweetie Bird who left the site. :( We did not get very far. He is an animagus who was in Slytherin House when he attended Hogwarts. He is a Charms Professor and a former Dramatic Arts practitioner.

Attitude | +
"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company...a church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes. "

Thank you for responding!

Though I've advertised for both Jumper and Merlin, I've never had the pleasure of being involved in a role play to do with either fandoms so I'd been fine with doing either of them too.

You mentioned your preference for a Harry Potter RP, which I would be more than happy to be involved in. What generation would you like to assume (ignoring canon, of course)? . Tyresius Jordan certainly looks an interesting fellow! I'm fairly flexible to fashioning the plot and setting, since I have no current pre-written premises.

Just out of curiosity are you interested in Dresden Files at all?


Also out of the list you mentioned I like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games. So I'd be open to an RP set in either world.
