    Mari's not-so-organized Organizer

    Magical Girls, Adventure, Fights, Shenanigans and Girls Love--Oh my!

    About MeMy name's Marin and I'm a young woman writer with a penchant for magical girls, adventure, fighting, character development, and shenanigans! If you need an example of my type of humor, consider that I play Peach and take her powers from Smash Bros and Super Princess Peach. So that's what I consider hilarious. I'm looking forward to plotting with a bunch of people!

    My Thread/Plot PreferencesI'm a really big fan of character development, long-term plotting, and adventure! It's safe to assume that every one of my characters is down for a good adventure. I'm also a big fan of fighting and other shenanigans! I'm partial toward fighting NPCs, but as long as we're not just fighting for fighting's sake I don't mind battling other player characters either. I'm preferential to fantasy locales, especially pre-modern ones, and enjoy being challenged by other players who want to see my characters succeed.

    My Shipping/Romance PreferencesUp until very recently, I've been deep in the closet about being a lesbian. I've spent most of my life basically pretending to be attracted to men, so roleplaying a character that is attracted to men, unfortunately, hits very close to home for me. I cannot do it, and so all of my characters are also lesbians. I tend to use the words romance/romantic as in 'romanticized', with no implication of sexuality. I love romance of all sorts--be it dating, platonic love, kinship, or some hammy girl power. That means it doesn't have to be sexual, or even exclusive. It would be accurate to say that I'm crazy about love but prefer to keep the concepts of love and 'lust' separate.

    My Combat StyleIn combat, my characters will generally cycle through a variety of different strategies, techniques, and shenanigans in an effort to defeat their foes. If I run out of ideas, I will often begin allowing them to tire out, falter and be defeated unless told otherwise. Two things I really don't like when it comes to combat are:
    • Shonen Logic: Apathy equals power. All fights must have more twists and turns than a rollercoaster. Determination also equals power. Etcetera. Shonen logic seriously hurts my enjoyment.
    • Torture Porn: I'm not saying don't hurt my character; you can hurt them as badly as you want. Suffering to Character Development is a true combo, after all. Just be careful not to get excessive with the gory/awful details.
    My preferences on mature contentI don't usually write anything that I'd consider meriting a mature tag. I take a small amount of pride in being able to address more "mature" topics in a sterile and at least somewhat respectful manner. Not everyone does that. Short of anything related to genitalia, there aren't a lot of things on my "strictly mature" list. However, I will gladly participate in and tag threads as mature at the request of anyone I'm writing with.

    My post length/frequency preferencesI am most comfortable with 1-2 paragraphs per post or so on average. 1 or 2 good blocks of text. My post frequency varies wildly, but I try not to let things sit for more than a month at absolute most and you can always contact me if you have concerns.

    Check out my characters below!

    Princess Peach Toadstool
    Heir To The Mushroom Kingdom

    Gender: Female
    Age: 17
    Sexuality: Homoromantic
    Occupation: Princess Errant
    Alignment: Neutral Good
    Height: 6'2'' (188 cm)

    Outstanding Traits

    Pure of Heart • Magical Girl (Love Magic) • Empowered by Femininity
    Sentient Parasol Sidekick • Swallows Enemies Whole

    Princess Peach of Super Mario Bros fame is here on Pandora, separated from her beloved kingdom and probably a little upset about that fact. She is a friendly character with a heart almost as big as her hips, able to find it in her to love just about anyone. Though it should be said that some more troublesome individuals may find it to be 'tough love'. She may not look like much of a fighter, but she's deceptively strong and clever. This is one pretty princess that isn't afraid to play the heroine, ...but would probably rather not if she doesn't have to.

    Arle Nadja
    Kindergartener Mage


    Gender: Female
    Age: 5
    Sexuality: Homoromantic
    Occupation: Apprentice Magician
    Alignment: Neutral Good
    Height: 2'5'' (73.66 cm)

    Outstanding Traits

    Prodigy Mage • Snarky • Heroine • Baby Talk Lite • Immortal
    Impressionable • Can only restore mana by ingesting it

    Arle Nadja is from the untranslated 1989 series Madou Monogatari, but is better known in the west for her later appearance in the spinoff series Puyo Puyo. Arle inherited her magical abilities from a powerful ancestor who lead a blasphemous yet righteous war against God. She first learned to tap into this power after getting lost in a forest near her grandmother's house and being taught by the fairies living there. Arle hails from a medievalesque world ruled by powerful magicians rather than kings, lords or armies and inhabited by a large variety of monsters, some with more humanity than others. It borrows heavily from Christian / Japanese Buddhism for its mythology. As of her abduction to Pandora, she has just finished passing her final exam at her world's magic kindergarten, an exam that went wildly and terrifyingly off the rails. It would be accurate to say that she faced trials that would have been considered unreasonable and traumatic even by adult standards, and that she overcame them only because of her prodigious raw talent.

    @Marin HELLO PERSON WITH THE TINY MAGE! SO, I don't know how much actual magic you have her doing in Pandora, if she might be involved in Merlin's school at all, perhaps? But I would love to find a way for her and Magnus to meet. His dealings with young warlocks in his own world in the show are great to watch - he becomes very protective of them, especially after the reaction he had during his own childhood to learning of his abilities.

    If one could see the other using magic, do you think it'd be enough to stop and start a conversation between the two of them? Or we could do a different thread for them to encounter one another - perhaps a moment of danger where they have to team up a bit to get out of it (monster/demon, just a regular Bad Guy, etc?). That is, if you would be up for the two of them meeting in the first place.

    But I mean, who doesn't need more mage friends? :)

    @Elle Woah! I don't remember ever getting a notification for this, which is weird because I definitely have this thread watched... But regardless! If you're still interested, I'd love to thread together. vwv

    Arle is not currently in any school-related threads, however, she is in fact aware of Schola Praeditos and has been there before! She does love school, especially learning about magic. As far as practicing magic goes, she uses magic very frequently. While her library of spells to choose from is quite small, they are quite potent and useful for protecting herself and dealing with a lot of common adventurer dangers.

    Magic is very... normal where Arle comes from. It might not be enough to grab her attention. But she often gets herself into trouble fighting monsters and demons yeah! That could definitely be arranged. In fact, I just happened to write up an open thread with her doing just that before I checked this thread. You're welcome to join if the circumstances work for you, or we could think up a new one!

    As for friends, Arle does tend to respect her elders--the ones that aren't evil anyway. I think they could get along fairly easily, from what little I understand!

    @Marin - I'd definitely still like to throw these two together! Though just a quick thing, you dated that open thread for March but the site is still in winter dates for threading! So there aren't any March-May threads on the site yet until the season change (which is next week on the 15th!!)

    ...but also we could totally do something with the two of them after the 15th for the Spring Threads, just because it's so late in Winter I don't want to start anything new just now while I'm trying to wrap up more of my older threads and important plot stuff I have to squeeze in the end of Winter threads here. xD

    I think the two of them getting into a spot of trouble could be fun! ^_^

    @Elle Oh dear... Just when I thought I'd found a way to mostly avoid stressing about thread dating too. vwv

    But sure! Let's do that. 'u' I have nothing at all important going on, which means I'm free for whatever days or dates you'd like. I have a book o' monsters from Arle's series that I usually reference when I need something to harass her. It ranges from silly nonsense like campy skeletons and bully cats to zombie dragons and very powerful demons, with plenty of room inbetween. I could grab something from there if you'd like, though I'm also open to suggestions. 'w'
