    that birb is the werb

    About MeName is Birb. I'm 28. I love both sci-fi and fantasy, but I'm only good at roleplaying fantasy. I'm not smart enough to sound like I know what I'm doing with sci-fi. lol All my favorite fandoms are video games, movies, and some books and live-action tv shows - such as! *drum roll* Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls, Assassin's Creed, Fallout, Witcher, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, Star Trek, Supernatural, Heroes. I have been roleplaying for about 15 years now. I am a zookeeper and I mainly work with birbs, but I have also worked with large carns, primates, reptiles, hoofstock, and random assortment of small mammals. So I also love animals. c:

    I'm a goofy mofo. I'm sarcastic af, and don't take anything I say seriously.

    Roleplay PreferencesFirst thing you should know - I don't write a lot per post on average. I used to, when I was younger, but I gave up rambling to just get straight to the point. I used to write novellas, but the problem was I never finished threads because I was so focused on writing as much as I could per post that I tired out quickly and was hesitant to reply again because I knew I would be sitting there for hours, typing a reply. So, now I have quit that in favor of just having fun - so I write probably around two-three paragraphs per reply once we're past the starter posts and out of the action sequences. If there is something going on beyond dialogue in a post, then yeah sure, I'll write more. I write just enough to maintain character and keep the thread going.

    I also prefer one-on-one threads over group threads, just because typically group threads take longer or don't go far depending on the activity level of those involved.

    I'm an admiral of the shipping armada. I'll ship all the things, even if they aren't being shipped in-character. So don't mind me. I'm not talking about just romantic-shipping, I'm also talking about friendships, bromances, rivalries, etc.

    PLEASE DON'T BE AFRAID TO PLOT WITH ME! I don't bite! If you want to brainstorm between our characters and you need my feedback to come up with a solid plot, but are afraid, don't beeeeee. I like to be bugged. I am a needy, greedy little birb. THROW ALL THE CRAZY PLOTS AT ME! Hurt my characters, I don't care. Drama, torture, romance, repeat.

    LimitsI'm not a huge fan of explicit violence - like if it's part of the plot, then sure. But I don't like gore for the shock value. I love romance... so I have no limits there beyond things like rape, gross bodily fluid stuff, and... that's pretty much it. I'm a classy character ho. I'm not here to gross anybody out, so just let me know! I also don't like to do anything that my character wouldn't do just for shits and giggles (although I will do that OOCly because it's amusing - but in a reply, I have time to think about what my character would actually do and I regulate myself that way).

    Check out my characters below!

    Dorian Pavus

    dragon age

    [​IMG]

    Dorian is a mage of high caliber, from a long lineage of mages. He has a high opinion of mages and curiosity for anything else, but a low opinion of those who oppose magic. A pariah of his home country, whom he loves with a deep pride but won't defend its down-falls, he recognizes the failings of traditional decorum and has a strong sense of morality. He comes off as solely self-absorbed, outspoken and superficial - but that only mostly a front. He's a passionate, outspoken, and intelligent man with a superior taste in fashion and mustaches men's hygiene and grooming practices, but a terribly, inferior taste in alcohol (he's a cheap drunk). He's also the master of deadpan snark. If you're not a fan of high-brow humor, you won't get Dorian. He seems to reveal in being an acquired taste.

    PlotsIn Pandora, he found himself in Misty Hallow, where he is currently staying as a freelance magical specialist. Eventually, he'll move onto to something else, but always have something to do with magic. If you need anything enchanted, enhanced, fixed, crafted, examined, and you're in the neighborhood, hit him up. He'll also take anything magical off of your hands for you if you wish to trade services. There's a lot of different magic in Pandora, and he is keen to see it all.

    He needs someone to show him magitech, so he can learn the magic of the internet

    Dorian is ever flirtatious, which can either be uncomfortable or inviting. That is up to you. lol But he is only into men, so he's sorry in advance if you're a lady and he leads you on.

    Zevran Arainai

    dragon age

    [​IMG]

    Zevran was a Crow assassin turned tailcoat, working in Antiva to bring down his former employees by picking them off one by one. He was once heralded as a savior of the fifth Blight, having helped the Warden stop it. He's suave, cocky, and very openly hedonistic - he has no concept of shame when it comes to things society deems distasteful. He is very loyal and agreeable, and his passions are fleeting - they come and go like the wind, but he enjoys every moment that life has to offer.

    PlotsZevran currently works at the Living Canvas Tattoo Parlor in Blackhaven, Pandora Town, which is also where he lives. Although he knows how to tattoo, there are other skill sets that are not being used, that I feel like could be used in a subterfuge/assassin work manner, however, he's not a law-abiding, greater-good type of guy, although he's done it in the past. And it did feel good. I feel like for him to change career paths, he would need to someone to try to make an honest man out of him (he did not romance the Warden, so he never found love). They don't have to be his final, they just have to work in a 'defense' position and convince him (bedroom talk is an easy way to convince him) that his talents would be put to better use elsewhere. Or, just a cause that he can get behind.

    He is also open to literally any ships at any time of a physical nature from either gender or race, so long as he finds you attractive. ;D

    Newton Scamander

    harry potter

    [​IMG]

    Mr. Newton Scamander, known to his friends by 'Newt', is a wizard from the late 1920s! He got a magical 'zoo'tcase that's bigger on the inside full of magical creatures and beasties - well he did, but after portaling into Pandora, they have all escaped! Literally all of them, including the super dangerous ones, so needless to say, he needs to get them all back! Newt is a Magizoologist, it's his life's passion, so there is no reason why he cannot do the same thing here. There are probably lots of animals that Newt hasn't seen before! Newt is far more comfortable with animals than he is with people, although he can still get around. If you're not hung up on his social awkwardness, he's got that quiet confidence that lets him get around without being noticed but you can trust him to know what he's doing. He's empathetic to all fauna, but this also extends to people, specifically those who are marginalized or downtrodden. He's a giver, not a taker. ;D

    PlotsNewt is trying to get back all his creatures, some of which are dangerous, aggressive, and critically endangered. He is eager to track them all down, although he honestly has no idea how far and wide they have been scattered, so he's scouring every status on StarkBook, or every internet article, to find clues as to where they might be hidden - strange happenings, crappy 'loch ness' type photos, out-right 'THERE'S A MONSTER IN MY HOUSE' calls for help. (If you actually make a status update, that would be amazing and immersive lol)

    "Taken" creature threads: Frank (Thor), Niffler (open starter thread), Pickett (Tina), Erumpent (Bruce Banner), Occamy (William of Lanchester)

    His magical creature field guide has been put on hold, since he's no longer on Earth, BUT he's writing a new one for Pandora's Mage Guild (who is funding him)! So not only he looking for his own, he's also wants to meet creatures he's never seen before. So if you have one, or know where he can find one, please plot with him! He'll also extricate problem creatures from your house so you don't have to call an exterminator/hunter/slayer/whatever.

    omg I'm finally going to catch up I SWEAR TO GOD THIS IS ME PLOTTING EVERYWHERE. But anyway, I have two ideas primarily for @Dorian Pavus !

    First and foremost, I have @Crowley , who's just a lot of attitude and grumpiness condensed into a demonic package. The funny thing here is that in most situations I'd say that Crowley and Dorian might actually get on quite splendidly, given that they have similar outward personalities, but obvs I reckon Dorian would have some issues with Crowley being a demon. STILL THEY LIVE IN THE SAME TOWN, and Crowley has a pretty decent reputation therein, thanks to some good work he did when the barrier fell in May. He also has a massive hellhound named Juliet who likes to run amok causing trouble and being precious

    Secondly, I have @Sephiroth who I JUST LIKE TO TORMENT OKAY. BECAUSE LOOK AT HIM, DORIAN, HE'S PERFECT. On the downside he's also got the emotional range of a turnip and wouldn't know what flirting is if it got naked and did the Cha Cha Slide. BUT STILL.

    @Jack lol it's never too late to plot with the dorian!

    @Crowley definitely, for sure. I was hoping this would eventually become a thing. Dorian is not opposed to talking to demons. He has talked to many demons. There is no harm in conversation. Some demons he's had very stimulating conversations with, before they, of course, attempted to eat him. So ... he would definitely be cautious. He'd treat it like a game of checkers. Never let the other get too close and just scoot around the board. I know canonically in DA, mages attract demons towards them, but Crowley is not a demon from Thedas, so it's up to you if he senses anything ... interesting. It could be fun to play with, but again, that aspect is entirely up to you. I'm not sure how Dorian would know what Crowley is, since he is living in a human body, but that can just come up naturally, if at all. I dunno. They'd be fun 8D Snarky snark and some booze. Although Dorian doesn't like dogs, so I doubt he will like a giant, invisible one who might chew on him. lol Also, don't mind the flashy magic, darling. Dorian is just a much nicer, better looking version of your mother. and she's not here to disagree with that, is she muahaha

    @Sephiroth He'll probably try to flirt, but he's also not one to continue on without some kind of tit-for-tat. He'd probably give up and accept that, while handsome, he is probably hopeless. haha

    Not sure why it took me this long to think of it, but @Korra would love to help @Newt Scamander track down his escaped magical creatures, or even find and record information on new ones. With all the weird mix-matched animals and spirits in her own world, not much can really put her off guard, and she even has her own tamed Polar bear-dog as a friend. She and Newt even come from a similar "1920s-with-magic" kind of setting. XD

    Really? I never saw Avatar the Last Airbender, but I didn't realize it was set in that era! 8D Yeah sure! Newt needs to write some entries for Pandora's encyclopedia on fauna, so if there are any creatures from her fandom that Newt can come across, we can study dem!

    Yeah, the original Avatar series is kind of before the industrial age, but The Legend of Korra is closer to the Roaring 20s when it comes to technology. Her world has dragons, moose-lions, giant badger-moles that can earthbend, flying sky bison, huge fish, and big anteaters that can see via scent and have paralyzing venom. There a bunch of other weird animals too if those don't work.

    Oh wow. i didn't even know. Why did i never watch this show?

    Literally any of those animals sound fine. 8D although maybe not the dragon. only because he's seen a dragon before. the giant badger mole or the venomous anteater sounds like its up Newt's alley lol

    Hey there Birb! Earlier, maybe yesterday or the day before that, on the Official Pandora Discord Server, you said a small thread idea between Quirrel and Newt. I'm infamously bad at discerning humor from seriousness so I'm not sure if you actually liked the idea but I thought it was nice!

    Basically it would be around the little firefly like creatures from Quirrel's world called Lumaflies. Quirrel already caught one in a previous thread (he named it Prometheus!) but he's in need of several more for a device he's commissioning from an inventor to make use of the electricity they can generate when they swarm together. So what I'm thinking is they could meet in Silverwood Forest while he's trying to catch some of the bugs. I figure a magical forest is the type of place one could meet someone writing a guide on magical creatures, after all. From there... well, I'm not sure yet. But does it sound like a good start at least?

    No, I was not being funny. I already pegged it on his timeline as a possible thread so I didn't forget! That idea sounds great! <3

    Good to hear! Well, I guess we're both game for it then. Even if you obviously don't need to drop everything and get on this, I'll just say the best dates for such a thing would be within around two weeks after July 6th.

    EDIT: Though I can be easily flexible when it comes to the date if need be, don't feel pressured or anything by such a narrow range.

    @Zevran Arainai

    I am throwing Ezio Auditore at Zevran, being a master assassin he's also been around Pandora Town. He himself has at times had to deal with other assassins, from traitors to those who see him as a threat, which any Antivan crows who were pulled into Pandora would likely see the Order as and target Ezio, which could lead to a run in since they have a common issue.

    Heya Birb!

    This might be an unusual inquiry, but would you, potentially, be interested in plotting with characters who knew earlier versions of yours in Pandora, before they vanished? I know, that can be tricky and not everybody wants that, and I'd totally respect that. c:
    But, if there is a small chance that you might be interested, let me explain a bit more about this idea.
    The last time Dorian was in Pandora, was in Winter last year, so that's quite the time that has passed since then. But back then, my character @Raphael Santiago and he dated for like three months, before they broke it off - the reasons for that are a bit more complex, so I'll spare you an explanation here - at the very beginning of Spring. Dorian vanished a few days after that, and Raphael only found out one and a half month later. It's sad for him, because he certainly still cared about Dorian, but he has moved on from it by now.
    What I would be interested in, somewhen down the line - this season or next one, depending on if/when you want it to happen - would be for them to cross paths again and see what happens. I'm not looking for romance or anything at the moment, but it could be interesting and quite nice to have them bond platonically again, without the usual awkwardness such a situation would probably cause. Again - only if you're interested.
    If not, I can understand that, don't worry.

    So, yeah, that's basically my offer, do with this what you will :3

    @Chen You can bring in NPCs from other worlds?! Why did I never think of this! Yes! Zevran was just trying to have a normal job, but if he realized that other Crows had been pulled, he would love to kill him some more Crows! And if his hooded companion is handsome and reminds him of Antiva while he's doing it, then that's all the better! Now, if we're also doing Dorian and Bull at some point, do you want to just trade off? I'll start one and you start one?

    @GhostOfHalloweenPast I actually don't mind at all. I think it's a super interesting part of Pandora. Dorian especially wouldn't mind because he's into that timey-wimey stuff. It would be best if you didn't tell him that you dated other!him because then that would be awkward, wouldn't it? 8D Also... he could use a good tailor. What a coincidence.

    Ooh, that's neat to know!
    I don't think it will immediately come up, Raphael having his fair share of people reappearing after vanishing a bit earlier, and realizing that it isn't fair to throw the whole we were dating how dare you not remember me thing at them. So, no problem there. ^-^
    If he needs a good tailor, I mean, he could visit the shop Raphael's working at on his journeys? Would you be in for that? It would have to be earliest in August, though.
