Likes, Dislikes, & How I Play
※Plots - I like when things happen, bad or good or otherwise. I like little character generated private plots and big game-wide plots. I like when there's some kind of resolution and evolution of characters because of it. I like when things aren't quite static. I like when things are shaken up and everyone reacts. I like it when there is something to work with, and when there are consequences for bad decisions and good ones too.
※Romance/Smut - Sap? Corny? Mushy? Bringing tears to the eyes of sentimental fangirls everywhere? Sign me up!! Hot, steamy, pushed up against the wall sexxors? Bring on the smut! If I don't know you, then I might fade or black out, but I like romance and kissing and flirting. I like relationships - and I also like when characters break up. When it's just a fling. When someone is using someone else. I like broken hearts and happy hearts and realism. I like het, I like femmeslash, and I like slash. Slash is my default and is the easiest for me to write, and generally produces the relationships I'm most interested in writing.
※Complexity - I like rounded-out characters. Character who have depths and thinky thoughts and more going on that just whoever they happen to be screwing at the time. I like layers, even when they aren't ogres or onions. I like hidden depths and realistic inner conflict and tough decisions. I like things to not always be as they seem.
※Fun - I like games that have a mix of drama, angst, romance, smut, plot, and humor. Not everything is serious, there should be some silly, too, now and then. Group threads make me a little insane, but they can be a fun sort of insane. If it makes me giggle, I'll probably want to do it.
※Maturity - I like when the people I play with write and act as if they are older than sixteen. I expect that they are, and will not play adult themes with people who are not of age. I like when players can conduct themselves and their RP with dignity and maturity and not bring it down to OOC dramallama attention-whoring teen-emo tactics. Those sorts of things tend to make me run for the hills. Do not try to drag me into the middle of OOC drama and expect me to pick sides.
※Initiative - I like players who don't sit back and wait for plots and play to come to them. I like people to show initiative. This is a little hypocritical of me, as I'm really shy and I tend to do that very thing. Which is why I like it so much when people approach me first!! That said, there are limits, and I don't like players railroading plots without telling the mods or involving other peoples' characters without permission. I like creative people who aren't afraid to come up with new ideas to work around old concepts.
※IC-ness - If it's a fandom game and you're playing a canon character, then I expect that character to sound like a reasonable facsimile of themselves. Everyone has a different take on canon, of course, and if you can, through development of your character, push your character toward being gay, or being more evil/less evil than some might think them, or if in-game events have evolved them into a somewhat different place than in canon, then that's all well and good. However, any sort of indication that the majority of the characters are smoking the gay fairy dust and partaking in the emo!sue pie, in a NON-AU game- I'm not going to stick around. If it's an original character, I expect consistency. The shy bookworm by day can not turn into the seductive femme fatale overnight. Characters grow and change in play, of course, but a reasonable amount of consistency is more then reasonable.
※Organization - I like games that are reasonably well organized, moderately sized, and have active & friendly players and mods. These things are NOT that easy to find. Cliques don't interest me, and you should probably just close your game to new members if you don't actually want any.
※Supernatural - I tend to like games with a fantasy/supernatural aspect to them. It just adds to the fun and creativity. I don't have a lot of interest in games that are just people living in an apartment building or going to high-school and such. I already have one real life. I don't need another. Historical storylines are an occasional exception.
※Enthusiasm - I like when people get excited about RPing. Not just with me, but in a game. Games where people are enthusiastic and in love with their characters and storylines are wonderful, and yes this IS possible, I've seen it! I like when people are invested in characters ASIDE from their own and will get excited about a storyline they're just reading. It's a very cool thing to see in a game.
※Kink - Been there, done that. I'll do it again, if it's relationship appropriate. I like reasonable kink. No extreme stuff. But some good-natured sub/dom, dirty talk, light bondage, threesomes, roleplay, etc. These are fun, when done in moderation and with a mature writer.
