welcome to my gothic horror/romance one on one search. i'm a 24-year-old graduate student in the humanities in canada (EST). i've been roleplaying for many years and like to think i've gotten pretty good at it. i'm currently writing a thesis and finishing my degree but not in classes, so i'm online a lot and filling time i should be working with roleplays.

here are some rules and preferences. i'd appreciate it if you went through them before contacting me.
i'm equally happy to DOUBLE or not. i treat both characters equally in doubling situations. if we are not doubling, however, i will play female.
i'm largely searching for MXF but if we are doubling and there is an m// pairing you have in mind i'm happy to oblige. i'm not super interested in platonic ships for main characters.
EMAIL > GDOCS. i have skype for ooc but i won't rp over im or message boards.
i consider myself LAZY LIT/ADV. i write third-person paragraph style. my intros are usually 700-1000 words per character and my replies about 300-500 words. can be more, can be less.
i would like for this to be at least somewhat LONGTERM. i love having partners where we can pick up something else if one rp concludes or keep the same one going with new plots/generations/etc for a long time.
i don't really have LIMITS, except the obvious. i don't want pure smut but i'm fine with sex/language/violence in roleplay. i love dark themes, i love angst and grit. it's pretty hard to shock me honestly. i also love romance and shipping so.
on that note YOU MUST BE 18+. even if there's nothing explicit in our rp i'm just not comfortable roleplaying with minors.
i'm pretty active, i'd like it if you were too. a few replies a week would be ideal. i can usually reply ONCE A DAY or more.
if we use FACECLAIMS, they must be of real people (except in the case of dragon age, for obvious reasons). you are more than welcome to request i use a particular faceclaim, i don't mind at all and will almost always oblige.
i'm DITCHER FRIENDLY. life happens, i get it. i won't flood your inbox if i stop hearing from you and i would appreciate it if you didn't do that to me. of course, if i find the rp is lacking something i will make an effort to tell you or if i have lost interest, but sometimes shit happens.
as you know from the title of this thread, i am craving a gothic romance/horror, something along the lines of crimson peak or inspired by any number of books/poems (wuthering heights, jane eyre, rebecca, dracula, etc etc etc) or shows/movies (crimson peak, penny dreadful, etc). think dilapidated mansions that seem to have a life of their own, family secrets, literal skeletons in the closet, incestuous relations, madness, supernatural elements, rooms you are strictly not to enter, shady housekeepers who know more than they seem, religious figures, psychological terror, etc. add troubled heroes and intrepid heroines and it's a good time for everyone.
i just watched crimson peak so i'm kind of wanting something based around a deceitful marriage, creepy manor some hades/persephone ~feels~. i have a female oc in mind for this, but we can definitely find a way to double.
i would cry a lot if you used tom hiddleston as a face claim but it is totally not necessary. this also doesn't have to be set in the victorian period. we can play with it, make it earlier or later. i would rather this not be modern, however.
i have a small plot in mind but we don't have to use it and can sort all the details out together i'm super flexible with all of this, so just come at me basically. i will probably cry over our characters a bunch and make playlists and pinboards, so just be ready for that. [contact info]
if by the end of this experience you should wish to be in touch with me, you can send an email to SNOUFLEURS@GMAIL.COM. from there i can give you my skype if you so desire.
