Hello, I play male characters a lot and my sites are all slow right now, so maybe I can use one? Idk. I guess. This is supposed to be where I quit RP but let's try just this one extra time. I'm a finicky person, and I have no idea what I want, so let's start with what I don't want and some things to know, and go from there.
I don't do activity checks. I'm developing my own software and writing three stories at once, mama ain't got time for that.
Or word counts. ... in a weird twist of fate, I don't like getting one-liners though. Better be one damn good one-liner. Ba-dum-TSH.
Or apps, for the most part. If they're small, I may overlook that annoyance. (Fun story, I usually do bios anyway if they're not required. It's the required part that bugs me.)
Honestly, the less micro-manage-y and strict your site is, the more likely I am to join it. I also don't really like sites that are built with children in mind. I cuss a lot, am terrible at self-censorship, and prefer to have the option to do non-SFW threads if they make sense to write out. I won't coat your site in smut, but if a plot naturally progresses to that point I want to decide for myself whether we fade to black or not. Not a deal-breaker, just something to keep in mind. I also don't... really want to play with kids, so, yeah.
I am annoying when I get comfortable.
But first of all, I have serious social anxiety. And I mean it. I will sit around and I will be quiet for an extended period of time (probably weeks) before I start talking. Once I do, you won't be able to get me to shut up. Like I said, I'm annoying when I'm comfortable. I'll be posting and plotting probably, but I won't be active OOC. What you do and how you react to my lurky ways can make or break my staying on your site and trust me, 500 posts a month at my peak says you want me to stay.
I will probably be turned away from your site if there are too many hoops to jump through (you know, 300 claims to do after acceptance type stuff).
I play a good number of non-white characters. You'll get Latinx's and Asians and probably some black people eventually, even if the first one is not it. I also play almost everything on the LGBTQIA spectrum, and I do mean the L and T.
I'd sorta like to play one of my ice skaters, like, in his proper ice skater form, so a site I can do that on would be rad.
I have early onset arthritis. I use Dragon NaturallySpeaking to work around this, and unfortunately when doing my posts with Dragon, it will often make mistakes and I won't necessarily catch them. I'm a linguist (give me a word or a name and I can break its etymology down for you probably), I don't need people jumping down my throat because Dragon mixed up site and sight.
I also am half blind. I cannot read your grey text on grey backgrounds at 10pt Calibri, and tbh, neither can you really, and you will regret that eventually, love your eyes.
I prefer dark themes. At least as an option. Bright, stark white gives me a headache to stare at for long periods of time.
Gonna just come out and say I'm neuro-divergent. Wording is not my strong suit. I'm also kind of more of an event. I occur. Feel free to tell me to Chill (tm).
Finally, I'm epileptic. Too many moving gifs, or ones that are flashy, jerky, choppy, or otherwise not smooth are just not kosher.
Some face-claims I use and would like open:
Liam Hemsworth (usually a necromancer bad-boy with a heart of gold and a penchant for using sarcasm to hide his pain)
Lucky Blue Smith (usually an impossibly old Roman vampire that runs a vampire coven slash mafia with a penchant for being right - he's clairvoyant)
Jordun Love (normally a street racing genie with a drinking problem that works as a bounty hunter)
Keiynan Lonsdale (Captain Buddha(tm))
Shemar Moore (usually a police officer that speaks only two languages fluently, English and Sarcasm)
I have some other ones but they are usually very rare to find. Obviously these and the characters they're for typically skew supernatural-y, but I can adjust them to fit almost anything. I also draw my own characters so sites that require drawn media are fine too. I prefer real life/live action because, gbh, I'm lazy. It's 2021, I ain't finna argue with lineart.
Think your site's The One? Hit me. Don't be too upset if I never show up to the party. In fact, assume I won't. It's easier that way. I really am that dang picky.
