Thanks to the Irrepressibles for making me question my gender identity and orientation for the third time this week! Anyways, I just want a very passionate, loving, piningful and steamy mlm romance with lots of tension and I don't care where I get it!!! All that to say, plot!!

My character is a repressed half-Orc Victorian-but-fantasy-steampunk author that pours all his repressed queer feelings into writing beautiful stories. Your character is a very, very queer male (insert magical species here) prostitute that is taken under my character's wing as his muse. Together, these two attempt to carve a life together and find a place together within this chaotic universe where anything nonhuman is seen as lesser than, and anything queer is seen as downright evil. I can explain more worldbuilding but basically it's: Victorian-y style steampunk society with magical beings being the largely repressed underclass and humans being the largely ruling class even with the impoverished ones. Kinda like Dnd but with more gay pining.

Templates are gonna be needed for this, I need a place to track my bullshit.

Rules:

Be fuckin uhhhh literate. I know I'm far from the best example of this, but I'm trying and you better, too.
I know life happens, but please try to respond regularly! I'll do the same, and I'll let you know when I take a hiatus.
PLEASE understand the content of this RP will be very sensitive and thus may not be for you. Lots of bad things will happen to our characters alongside the good! But like. It'll be sad lads hours. Take care of yourself!!
DO NOT under ANY circumstances make a Mary Sue/stereotypical character. ESPECIALLY seeing as your character is a queer sex worker in an era/universe where it's frowned upon to even be visibly effeminate in a man, let alone openly so, I don't play with the Angel Dust Hazbinhotel types of flat one-dimensional characters.
Please note that I generally do not write explicit sexual assault scenes. It can be mentioned, even discussed in great detail (and probably will be) but I generally find that I'm not prepared to handle that type of trigger and I don't want to trigger others either.
ALL smut goes to DMs. Because yes, there will be copious amounts of smut. Like, I'm tempted to have this whole RP be in DMs because of that fact, we'll see how it plays out.
PLEASE submit your character alongside your request to join. I will have a template below, fill out every section fully and in detail except for the sections marked with question marks.
And have fun!! Seriously, dudes.

Name: Cecil Bashuk
Age: 39
Gender Identity: Cis man
Pronouns: He/him
Orientation: Gay
Appearance: 7'6", with a pale, faintly yellowish green skintone and dark, dark brown eyes, wavy black hair that falls to his waist in twin braids and a hard, broad, but slightly chubby frame that nevertheless looks pretty intimidating from afar. Cecil's hands are perpetually stained with ink, and his eyes have a kind look in them for most everyone he meets. His face is square, soft though, with smile lines and crow's feet and full lips.
Wardrobe: Wears upper-class scholar type clothes, usually tailored slightly too large for even Cecil. Lots of earth tones and the occasional pastels.
Personality: Cecil is kind, but genuinely tired, with a look of exhaustion behind every well-meaning smile. He is very gentle with all manner of creature, he always makes way for smaller creatures like Fairies and Gnomes and is very cautious, very curious as well as to the nature of the universe. Cecil is very loyal to those he cares for, and gets attached too easily. He is desperately trying to prove that despite his Orc heritage, that he is not like them even with his compassion for his kind.
Key Traits: Gentle, loyal, and intelligent, with a desperation to prove himself.
Skills: Art, writing, musically gifted, as well as good with a sword.
Occupation: Author and poet, mostly, although has other hobbies as well.
Backstory: Cecil was born when his noble human mother eloped with her commoner Orc father, they were in love and deeply so and yet her mother was killed by her own family when they found out she was trying to raise a family with "a meager Orc farmer" and his father shortly afterwards committed suicide. Cecil was raised by the human side of his family, who lied to him about his upbringing

however Cecil always found many holes in their stories of his mother, even though he never bothered to look for his father's side of the family. He genuinely hates himself for who he is, and would love to change himself, however he knows this is impossible and quite frankly a pointless endeavor.
Theme Song(s)?: Nothing's New by Rio Romeo, Rule #4: Fish Inside A Birdcage by Fish Inside A Birdcage.
Other?: Is the proud owner of an army of stray cats that often visit his home.

@Tired-but-passionate

Name: Anthurium Dali
Age: 26
Gender Identity: non-binary
Pronouns: He/they
Orientation: pansexual
Appearance: Anthurium has a height of about 6’2 and a angular, triangular-shaped body. He has olive green skin with white-ish freckles and slightly pointed ears. He has a long, slightly curved nose, and a mouth with slightly sharpened teeth. Their eyes are a vibrant green color, and their hair is white with greenish tips, and goes down to just past his butt. They like wear it loose and long, but he keeps it up in a braided bun most of the time so it’s out of the way.
Wardrobe: They tend to present as masculine, but depending on the situation they sometimes get into more androgynous or flamboyant outfits. Some of their clothes are old and have a more Greek style to them. Their newer clothes look more cheap and Victorian-esque. A lot of it is white or cream, sometimes with green, gold, or red accents.
Personality: he’s not shy, just rather quiet and introverted. He’s also intelligent, and calculating and strategic when he needs to be. However, they’re also caring and loyal to those they have forged strong bonds to. He’s observant, curious, and knowledge-seeking; he loves to read and interview people about what they know. They also have a tendency to be very flirtatious, even if he doesn’t have an attraction to the person he’s flirting with. However, if angered or inconvenienced, they can turn their way with words into a way to verbally destroy whoever incited his anger. This anger is more of the cold type, to be clear. Luckily, he’s a fairly patient person, so this doesn’t happen too often.
Key Traits: reserved, intelligent, flirtatious, curious, patient, calm
Skills: can quickly identify different plant species, communicates with plants, good at his job, styling their hair, flirting lol
Occupation: prostitute, occasionally a gardener/ cultivator of nature
Backstory: Anthurium was born as the only child of a family of Hamadryads, a group of dryads associated with oak and poplar trees. He lived in the forest for most of his childhood, and was honestly pretty well off. Their parents were kind and loving for the most part, and the surrounding community forest of Hamadryads was friendly and supportive. However, his environment was still fairly heteronormative, so for a long time Anthurium believed they were straight and cis. And, as for many of us, the beginning of adolescence was also the beginning of great upheaval in his life. The stress of puberty and feeling disconnected from himself, along with hormones and having a lot feelings for people they supposedly shouldn’t have had feelings for was combined by their forest suddenly being in danger due to human activity. From ages 13-17 or so, Anthurium’s home gradually degraded. There were many fights with the humans over the land. The Hamadryads of the area grew sick. Eventually, it came to the point where everyone was forced to leave. Or at least, that’s what Anthurium thought. But the humans needed laborers. Yes, they had other magical creatures they used to put to work, but they would soon need more. And also, maybe these workers also needed some… comfort to give them some sort of break from work. And here were all these Hamadryad children, ripe for the taking. Before they could turn themselves into trees in defense, Anthurium and his friends were kidnapped and taken to an area where they couldn’t transform, and abused by both humans and nonhumans alike. Some months and many deaths later, it was decided that to keep the remaining Hamadryads alive, they would be moved to a prostitution house with a decent amount of nature/vegetation surrounding it. And so, that’s where Anthurium stayed for the next several years. As one of the workers in the house, they were actually being payed, and over time it started to feel… normal. Occasionally, they would be called back to the area that was once his home, but there was plenty of work deeper in the city. He saw both male and female clients, even some that were outside those two categories, as their work was truly of the underground sort, and so they were regularly exposed to the underbelly of the society that claimed to be so pristine and advanced. This was also when he began to question his own identity. Over time, their status within the prostitution house rose, and with it came privileges such as being able to have books and paper and ink. With this, it was almost like they could suddenly think for himself again. Despite the initial disturbing knowing that he was looking at processed corpses of trees, he valued the knowledge gained from what he read and absorbed it like a sponge. They also tried sending letters to their parents, but they were often discovered and destroyed. After that, he was revoked of those privileges. Utterly broken down, they then decided there was nothing left to lose and to escape the prostitution house. He went to the streets, making sure to stay in places with at least some trees and vegetation. They continue to do sex work, as it is the only thing they know how to do that will get them paid.

Other?: can transform into a poplar tree; flowers like snapdragon, wisteria, and star jasmine tend to grow on them whenever he’s experiencing heightened emotions; has some fire resistance. Also he has very strong feelings about the way society treats nature, and he’s weaker in cities or heavily polluted areas. I’ll expand on this more in the rp probably

@OrionShenanigan group

Hehehe I love them too. Is everything with the dryad lore and like, how they were treated make sense with the world?

Oki so everything checks out!! I actually really like your worldbuilding since it kinda adds some more dimension to what I already had planned!
