RP Style Questionnaire

What are your favorite types of characters to play?
Tortured, messed up souls. Comeback kids. Underdogs. I love playing villains or filling character requests.

What are your favorite types of plots or relationships in RP?
Lol, I’m pretty mean to my characters and I like setting them up for adversity or twisted drama. Messy, complicated romances. Frenemies. I love an underdog, so the goal is always gonna be for the characters to overcome the barriers in their way, but I think it’s more fun (and plausible) if they’re not 100% whole at the end of the day.

What's your preferred post length? Preferred thread length?
It just depends. My background is multiple-paragraph literate posts but it usually takes forever to move anything along that way. I’m really looking forward to rapid-fire oneliner/ short paragraph posting here. I’d say a minimum of 8 posts/ thread because it’s kinda silly to start a thread and then just have a character walk out of it without any plot/relationship building.

How often do you post?
It depends on the thread type. If it’s rapid fire or short-paragraph, probably at least once daily. If it’s a multi-paragraph kinda deal, probably once every 2 days unless it’s my only thread.

How long should a writing partner wait before nudging you to respond to a thread?
3 days-ish. I have exams once a month for school, so there’s probably going to be once week/month where I’m just slow.

How do you feel about rapidfire?
Absolutely love it.

How do you feel about group threads?
Ehhh, I’m not really in favor of those unless it’s rapid fire and everyone commits to it. Otherwise they take forever and never get resolved…

How much pre-planning vs. spontaneity do you like in your plots? Do you prefer to stick to the script or to deal with surprise curveballs?
I love plotting histories with people to give context to encounters. But I don’t like planning out futures or romances to the nth degree. Sure, soulmates or whatever may exist, but I don’t think it’s enjoyable or realistic to ‘reserve’ some character for someone else’s plot and say they’re immune to temptations or developing feelings for anyone else. Even if they’re married. Curveballs totally welcome. I think it’s more real to have your character react authentically to someone else’s actions, and for those consequences to be real. However, if you wanna plot out a messy past and ingrain feelings into characters for them to cope with and handle in future threads, I love that.

What's your comfort level regarding graphic scenes w/ violence, drug use, sex, etc? Any limits?
I’m fine with all of it. I’ve frankly never been on a board where all that is permitted (or a rapid fire board), so it’s usually been played out via direct messenger or something. I get bored (and annoyed) when that’s ALL that a thread or chat consists of… so, sometimes I gloss over it and move on. If it’s something that you want more embellishment on/ enjoy developing, just give me a heads up and I’ll happily oblige.

What are some RP habits/styles/etc. that you love?
I like imagery. I favor writing styles that don’t spare small details of someone’s expression or pull in a sound or smell from the room. I also enjoy it when RP includes physical reactions, not just verbal reactions.

What are some RP habits/styles/etc. that you avoid?
Hmm, I dislike seeing a character react the same way in different environments. For example, at work vs not at work, drinking vs not drinking.

Is there anything else you'd like your writing partners to know about you?
I’m personally really friendly. If anything I write seems off-canon or implausible for a situation, I’m always open to revising it. I’ve been out of writing for about 3 years probably so I’m awful at coding stuff or making posts ‘pretty.’
