  • Looking for an RP partner

    I've just recently joined and I'm looking for a roleplay partner. I haven't been doing much in the way of roleplay lately, so do forgive me if I start out a bit rusty. I have a few ideas floating around in my head so if you're interested leave a comment and we'll decide how to move from there.

    Hello hello!  I'm in basically the same boat as you. I'd be happy to talk ideas. We seem fairly compatible based on our preferences. What did you have in mind?

    I was thinking of possibly having an rp centered around either a crash landed extraterrestrial or an exchange student. I know, two entirely different sets of characters for those. But those are the only two I've had for a while. Just tell me which you would prefer and I'll start thinking up the rest of the plot.

    I'd be okay with either of them honestly. Exchange student is pretty safe. Crash landing could be really fun but it also has the chance to fall flat.

     

    If you have any ideas for the aliens I say we discuss that. If you're just blank then let's do exchange student.

    I think I could go with a good crash landing one. It's been a little bit since I've done something similar, but it has quite a bit more play and ability to really roleplay within it. 

     

    For the alien though, there's quite a few to choose from, not to mention making a hybrid from the characteristics. I was thinking of something quadrupedal like a Xenomorph, but with the intelligence level of something like Paul, having it be able to learn languages and such.

    Okay, I'm going to be upfront with you, I don't really watch alien movies so most of those references are going to be lost on me. I can google Xenomorph but I have no idea who Paul is.

    Ah, well Paul is basically the idea of an alien, little grey aliens, the ones with the giant heads and large eyes. Except he's voiced by Seth Rogen, therefore he's a sarcastic asshat. But the main takeaway is that it's a very smart alien that can learn languages and even how to operate equipment. But if you have any ideas to throw into the alien, then I'm all ears.

    Well, what tone do we want for the thread? Something light hearted? More serious and dramatic? Slice of life? Comedy? Angsty? Also, are we thinking of it mostly being clean? Sexy stuff but only as it organically comes up/often attached to romance? Moderate to heavy smut? If I get a feel for what kind of thread you want, I'll probably be able to come up with better ideas.

    I was thinking it was going to stay mostly within slice of life kinda deal as I don't do drama very well, I can't write a dramatic scene of my life depended on it. I was going to keep the sexy stuff away until it happened organically, and then possibly upping the smut here and there.

    So if we're doing a more light-hearted slice-of-life style of RP that isn't smut focused, the main thing that comes to mind is Invader Zim. Essentially, an RP where you have an alien that is incredibly advanced and very intelligent (at least relative to humans) but (and this works great since it was a crash landing) they know absolutely nothing about Earth customs so they're very socially awkward as a result. This can result in them being sort of bashful since suddenly they're out of the element, or they can just be confident in all of their (awkward and often wrong) decisions because they've rationalized that what they're doing is the most correct course of action.

     

    In order to avoid the drama involved with "oh my god aliens are real we need to biopsy this thing" either the human involved is going to have to hide them, or they're going to have to hide in plain sight (i.e. pretend to be human, a la Zim, or some sort of animal).  Thoughts?

    That, about hits the nail on the head. I couldn't find the words to properly express how I wanted it to play out. I do like the sound of it to, and with how I've envisioned the alien I would most likely have it hide as an animal of a sort. 

     

    Unless there's another part to the alien you'd like to add I think it's time to piece together where this is all going to take place. My vote is for a somewhat forested area, possibly somewhere in the American Midwest.

    Midwest sounds good to me. I'm not particularly familiar with the area (I'm from Texas) but I'll probably figure it out on the go. Were you hoping to play the human or alien in the scenario?

    I'd prefer to play the alien in this scenario, but I could also play the human if you were interested in being the alien. Another question would be where to roleplay. Would you like to make another thread, or just use the Echhitext?

    I'm actually pretty ambivalent about who to play. We could start it off where I play a human and you're the alien and if the thread goes well, we can introduce more characters. Something that comes to mind pretty easily is that the human would have a friend or someone (played by you) who finds out about the alien but agrees to keep quiet about it, and later another alien (played by me) comes to earth attempting to rescue the one that crashed originally but maybe it's something about Earth's atmosphere or maybe they're both just bad pilots but they end up crashing and being stranded as well.

    As for where to play it, uhh... that's where my inexperience with this place kinda comes into play. I'm used to playing on forums so I wouldn't mind someone starting up a thread, though to be honest, I'm not sure how or where to do that.

    All the points you just made sound perfectly fine to me. I will warn you though, I have a bad have when I have two characters to leave one severely unattended. I do my best to catch myself doing it, but don't be too annoyed when it happens.

     

    Just give me a little bit and I will get a thread going, and I don't know if I can invite so I'll just put the link in here.

    That's fine. Though what does come to mind is that, if the alien is going to be an animal and thus presumably someone's pet, unless my character lets a bunch of people in on the secret there won't be a lot of stuff for the alien to interact with.

    Maybe they should have some general ability to alter their shape? So at times they can be a human, and other times they can be an animal instead.

    That sounds fine by me, I hadn't put enough thought into that. Sorry I'm being a bit scatter brained, work has me tired all the time. But I do like the idea of the alien having temporary shape shifting abilities.

    Cool, sounds good. So if they're temporary, how does it work? Like is it something that takes effort to maintain, so the further they are from their 'true' form, the harder it becomes and shorter it lasts? Like if the alien looks vaguely dog-like, they can be a dog in public generally, but at home they'd revert to their normal form, and they can become a person but it doesn't last as long? 

    Also, what age were you thinking the human should be?

    That sounds good, probably have it last maybe three hours or so before they have to revert to their original form. You know, enough time to get out and about to do a few things, but not long enough to hold a job.

     

    I was thinking of maybe having the human aged at somewhere between 22-28, old enough to probably be out on there own and not worry about too many prying eyes.

    That makes sense. Anything else about the human that you wanted? Gender, occupation, personality, etc. I'm usually pretty flexible.

    I'm pretty lenient on the human, I'll leave the details up to you so you can make the character yours.

    Alright. Do I need to make one of those Character ID things or should I just describe them when the thread is up?
