Hi! I'm new to this whole thing but uhhh….I'd like to try it out!
Anyone want to help a religiously traumatized very big man overcome his internalized homophobia and thrive as the gay he was always meant to be?
Our characters are two soldiers in a war. We're specialized paratroopers, some of the best of the best. We're part of Company 18, led by Captain Hodge, a stern, tough man who (spoilers) is 100% dad material and will call you son/daughter/child. Company 18 has been deployed deep behind enemy lines, with the hope of attacking the enemy from the inside, and if we can do it, it would turn the tide of the war. However, this is a very risky mission, and if we fail, all of us die. There is no rescue. We either fight our way out, or we lose.
Who is this enemy you ask? Well wouldn't we like to know. That's incredibly classified information, and all we know is that a rag-tag group of guerilla fighters have essentially taken over the Great Plains area of Midwest America, from the tip of the Dakota's, to New Mexico. Is this a civil war? Foreign invasion? We don't know. All we know is we fight.
My character is 28 year old Buckley Foster. He's been with Company 18 for nearing a decade. Your character is the new recruit, seasoned in your field, but unfamiliar to this specific crew. You barely have time to meet your captain before you're deployed on this mission, and paired with Buck. The two of you are in charge of taking care of each other through the fight, and if you should get separated from the rest of the team, you're to stick to each other like glue until you are either found, or find your own way.
So of course, you get separated. And what else is there to do behind enemy lines than break past old traumas and fall in love just a little bit?
- I am new to this. I might be slow replying, because I am going to school full time and have other personal projects.
- Please have good descriptive length to your replies. Doesn't have to be anything vast, but please avoid single lines of dialogue with no further exposition unless it narratively makes sense to not include much further detail.
- Let's try to tell an actual story here, so lets check in about plot and other details here and there to keep it moving :)
- You will be asked to provide a writing sample, and I reserve the right to say no, but it's never anything personal
Character sheets will be posted if someone is interested!
