Hi! My name's Miasma of Mars, and I like to roleplay lol obviously. Because I'm on here. But anyways, I don't know how people do things on here so I thought, why not ask? A tutorial can't hurt, right? So yeah uh,,, if you roleplay fandoms just check my profile and see what fandoms I'm in! Otherwise I do like rom-coms and satire for genres, so either of those for plots might be fun. Anyways, I'm here, queer, and ready to learn!

@Gaytective-Saihara

When it comes to role playing on here, it depends on who is the creator of the rp. Things such as size, length requirements, subjects that are to be expected, subjects that are banned, etc. are up to those who create the role play. Personally, my only requirement is that there is no sexual stuff, but most role plays have more than that. However, I do hope you enjoy role playing here. There's something for just about anyone here!

Deleted user

Oh, okay. Would you like to do a roleplay with me though? Since I did post this to learn through action lol. Not to be rude! I'm just trying to get a feel for the general style here.

@Gaytective-Saihara

No, it's okay! I'm so used to people not wanting to rp with me that I just actively made it seem like I'm not interested, I've been here since 2019. Anyways, we can rp! I'd love to be able to help you!

@Zoe-the-GM

People rp here just like anywhere else. What websites/apps are you familiar with? (Amino, discord, minecraft, storytellers circle, etc.)

Uh… Tumblr and Discord with friends, usually in a more narrative/book-like format.

Yeah, this place is similar to that.

@Gaytective-Saihara

I don't really have any. Here's an OC of mine for some possible help. (I am not used to actually role playing much anymore)

Name: Aki Miyoshi
Age: Changes in role plays
Gender: Male
Orientations: Currently undecided
Appearance: No idea how to describe his hairstyle, but short hair, half pastel green, half pastel purple, white eyes. He's tall, being 6'1" (I decided that after comparing his drawing to those of k-pop idols around 5'10"), and skinny. He looks generally kind and caring.
Personality: A cinnamon roll. Caring, understanding, optimistic, supportive, hardworking, and outgoing describe him.
Other: Ultimate Baker in my fangan story (not really important, but this will explain any mentions of him randomly having baked goods with him)

It's a simple character sheet.

Deleted user

Oh, okay! I know how character sheets work! I'll make my dude and we can get started. Do you have any plot ideas that could work with your guy? All I have in mind is a found family buddy comedy.

@Gaytective-Saihara

I don't have much in mind, but I can say that Aki is, to most, loveable and easy to get along with. I'm a bit of a drama queen, but I rarely write drama revolving around my characters in role plays because I don't want to make it revolve around them.

Deleted user

Makes sense! So, I guess maybe… he's a baker, so maybe my character can work at like, a tattoo parlor or something, next door, and they form an unlikely friendship?

Deleted user

Maybe a deliveryman misdelivers something to my character's shop, and then they figure out where it was supposed to actually go, hand it over, they get into a conversation and their friendship develops from there?

Deleted user

I’ll get my character up first, if that’s okay with you.

Deleted user

Sorry this is taking me so long, my dad and I had to go out on errands and then I had to eat dinner. Hopefully I'll get something up soon.

Name: Benjamin Casey
Age: 19
Pronouns: He/they
Looks: Benjamin is tall (5'11"), has dyed blue hair, and is covered head to toe in tattoos, most to do with flowers and fire. Each flower on their body signifies a specific meaning, and in combination tells a pretty compelling story. Benjamin has fairly dark skin, in between the colors of amber and bronze with a warm undertone. He naturally has very dark brown eyes, but covers them up with gold colored contacts.
Orientation: Aroace
Personality: Benjamin is friendly, but at the same time withdrawn, keeping much to himself mostly because nobody bothers to ask him about his life. When people do, he gives vague answers and doesn't tend to exposit much, choosing instead to be more of a listener and hear what others have to say about themselves.
Background: Benjamin had a rough life. Their mother was the begrudging breadwinner by their father's account of the household, owning a fairly successful nail salon and getting Benjamin initially interested in cosmetics and body modification. Years passed with a deadbeat father, a half-brother who got into a lot of trouble in his youth on their father's part, and a sister who allegedly died of a drug overdose but was more likely a murder that never got solved. Eventually, his parents divorced and Benjamin was sent to their father's care, suffering a lot of abuse under the man's hands. Their mother tried to get custody of them, but as Benjamin's father was involved in organized crime CPS was never able to prove anything. Eventually Benjamin left to pursue a job as a tattoo artist and left for a smaller but still bustling city with less crime and more community.
Quotes: "You're hardly a family man." "I'd say I cared… and I wouldn't be lying. I really care too much." "How do you make me feel so much in so little time?"
Theme (as in song): I Do by Jessica Law
Trivia: Benjamin learned to tattoo with help from their half-brother. It's the only thing they're grateful for. They stole their father's money to build their tattoo shop and fear retribution. He owns a ferret named Ferret, for simplicity, and he's trained her to steal from wallets.
Etc.: If I were to pick a better theme song for them, it would probably be one about just,,, major daddy issues.

That's okay, I tend to be slow too just because I have a hard time thinking up good responses lol.
