    Another story must begin

    About Me
    Hello! I’m Cait and I’m a big fan of writing. I’m a member of all sorts of fandoms of all shapes and sizes. I was here a couple of years ago, left then came back. I am currently trying to also do some structured novel writing alongside this site. I’m fairly active, but at points of the year I’ll likely not be around at all so if I am a little slower please have patience with me- I’ll get to everything eventually!

    I would prefer to do all my plotting in this thread or through PM’s as I’m not on discord.

    Roleplay Preferences
    I love all sorts of plots, like literally anything. I love everything right from fluff to angsty things and all of that in-between. My posts can be anything from a couple of lines right to 1000 words, and I don’t try to match the other person I’m writing; quality over quantity is my motto! I’ll always give whoever I’m writing with something to work with, no matter how small my post is. I also try to reply within a few weeks- it can be less, but as a rule of thumb, nudge me if I’ve not replied after a couple of weeks.

    I prioritise threads with groups or big plot details, but if you want a thread prioritising give me a PM or reply here and I'll get to that one first.

    I really like threads of all shapes and sizes. That can mean a long thread where the characters go on some kind of adventure or they might have a fight of some kind. Or I also don’t mind quick threads, say if your character ran briefly into mine for example if they knocked them over in their rush and they briefly stopped to apologise before going on. I think all types of plots are interesting. I don’t mind my guys getting into conflicts of any kind (many of them work with dangerous situations so it’d probably be normal).

    Also, I love threads which challenge the way that I write my guys. I don’t like getting too comfortable with the way my guys are in Pandora and every now and again I like something to occur which shakes things up a bit, whether it’s a promotion, a confrontation with someone or even perhaps gaining a new friend.

    Also, because all of my guys have special abilities of some sort (magic, time lord and shadowhunter) I’d love them to get more involved in actually using their abilities for others. Now that could be helping someone out who has asked or being tricked to help someone out who they really shouldn’t have? IDK but if your character needs something doing and one of my guys can help, I’d love to explore it.

    Limits
    I don’t like overly graphic or mature. Just ask if you’re unsure would be my best advice or if you have something to throw my way.

    Also I’m not a massive fan of threads which don’t seem to go anywhere e.g. just talking without being a real purpose. I find them really difficult to reply to if my character has literally nothing to go on when working with someone else.

    Aside from those, I can’t think of anything (aside from my guys being killed off) that would really bother me too much.

    Check out my characters below!

    Jocelyn Morgenstern

    The Mortal Instruments (books)

    [​IMG]


    This is Jocelyn Morgenstern from the Mortal Instruments series. In her world at the moment, she’s only just realised the full extent to her husband’s (Valentine) actions. She has a son, Jonathan, who is half demon which means that as a demon hunter, she’s quite conflicted in her feelings towards him (long story short, her husband fed her demons blood while she was pregnant to make a super-shadowhunter, but instead made their baby a demon she is repulsed by).

    In Pandora she has found happier times! She’s working for the department of Intelligence as well as at Pandora College (art classes) and Merlin’s school (combat class). She’s a talented painter and can paint a range of scenes.

    Back home she was a Shadowhunter which means she spent most of her time hunting demons and it quite talented at hand to hand combat as well as being handy with her seraph blade.

    Plot HooksThese are a few ideas, though I'm obviously open to other plots!

    Demon encounter - I'd love for Joce to come across some more demons, as she's had to work really hard at not just attacking them out right. She is okay with most types of demon like creatures e.g. werewolves/vampires but she'll go for them too if she think they're hurting mundanes.

    She has children but hasn't given birth to one yet (timeline stuff) and one who's basically a demon who she has lots of conflicting issues around. I'd like to bring that up in some way, maybe if your character can alter minds/bring bad thoughts to the surface etc. Or maybe they could just be a really good listener idk.

    Department of Intelligence threads- I'd love her to get more involved with the department and the people in it

    Friends - Please, this girl needs friends!

    Investigating- Need an investigator or someone to help your character out? Jocelyn could be the woman for the job.

    Scorpius Malfoy

    Harry Potter
    [​IMG]

    Scorpius is the son of Draco Malfoy and was part way through his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He’s no stranger to mischief and had meddled thoroughly with time back home with his best friend Albus.

    Overall, Scorpius is a caring and nerdy wizard. He’ll look out for his friends until his dying breath. He can come across quite erratic and a little bit nervous but he does have a certain confidence about his manner and he is quite a good wizard, though he is still technically in school so he has a lot to learn just yet.

    He goes against the Malfoy name in so much as he doesn’t prescribe to his grandfather’s way of thinking about Muggles and really has just made it his mission in life to get on with as many people as possible and to enjoy his schooling. Most of the time he can be found in the library.

    Plot Hooks
    School - I’d love him to meet other students and learn some more magic and develop his own talents or perhaps have some tutoring from teachers at the school?

    Friends - Scorpius will want to make friends so he’ll probably just pop up all over the place offering up sweets and generally being lovely

    Book nerds- He’ll also be spending lots of time in the library- perhaps he could encounter other characters there?

    Magic? - He’d really geek out at seeing any form of magic, with or without a wand, which could be quite good to explore




    Rey

    Star Wars
    [​IMG]
    Profile
    Rey is a force sensitive human presently locked in the battle between the First Order and the Rebellion; her sympathies lie with the latter. While she is an incredibly powerful force user, she is untrained and so her powers are sporadic and can often be unpredictable. She's a lovely person to get along with and craves people around her.

    She has only just arrived in Pandora and is in need of friends and somewhere to stay and things to do!

    Plot Hooks Orientation- Some people to help show her the ropes would be ex

    Training- Rey will need someone to train with. Obviously this doesn't have to be in terms of the force but also combat.

    Canon mates- I'd like her to interact with others from Star wars as well as people who are knowledgeable about the force and so forth

    Combat//adventure- I'd like her maybe to end up using her powers for something. Maybe if your character needs help on a quest or adventure, or if they pick on someone the wrong size she'll be there trying to defend them.

    Porpentina Goldstein

    Harry Potter
    [​IMG]

    Tina Goldstein is a witch from the 1920’s. She attended Illvermorny school of witchcraft in America and has been working as an auror since graduating. To all you No-Maj’s that means dark wizard hunter. Having lost her parents at a young age, she is incredibly protective over her younger sister Queenie who she lives with in Pandora. They’ve also adopted Modesty Barebones, who lives with them.

    In Pandora she is working at the department of Intelligence but she also teaches a lot of classes at Merlin’s school and is helping the students there to develop her magic. At the moment she is also trying to take a leaf out of Newt Scamander’s book and is looking around for creatures to tell her students about.

    Plot Hooks School- Some interactions with the students and teachers at Merlin's school would be great

    Helping hand?- Tina's good with magic, including potions and spells to help people, so if your character needs help she could lend a helping hand?

    Mages Guild - Some threads with people at the Mages Guild could be interesting?

    Danger, danger - I'd love Tina to get involved in some dangerous plots as well, maybe going on some kind of quest/adventure?

    Magical Creatures- Tina is trying to do a little bit more hands on magic and research, so anything to do with that would be great.

    The Doctor

    Doctor Who
    [​IMG]

    The Doctor is the last of the Time Lords; he's over 2000 years old and he's just arrived in Pandora to be his usual self. He's a child at heart and has a large heart. He is incredibly smart and takes his responsibilities of being a Time Lord mostly seriously. He has spent most of his life travelling around the universe and saving different parts of it. He doesn't like to see himself as a hero but he'll still play the part!

    Plot Hooks He's going to be opening up an antique shop in Pandora Town, so maybe people could bring in odd things for him to look at or find things in the shop. Maybe there could be some unusual magical artefacts there?

    The Doctor has a TARDIS so he will be popping in on different towns.

    I really want people to look past his grumpy demeanour and find the nicer part of his personality.

    I would love the Doctor to meet people with magic, magical creatures, or things which he thinks that are just impossible. Also he'd love every type of HP/fairy tale character because he's a bit of a geek and he'd love to meet them.

    The Doctor also is super smart so he can help if your character has a problem or needs advice on something.




    Arthur Pendragon

    BBC Merlin

    [​IMG]

    Profile

    Arthur Pendragon is the heir to Camelot’s throne. He’s been trained to be a king since birth, and has been helped along for the past few years by a man going by the name of Merlin (his oh so useless servant.) Arthur is incredibly loyal, competitive but he can come across as being incredibly arrogant too.

    Plot Hooks
    Some interactions with Cascade Bay residents? He’s going to need a lot of help.

    I’d also love him to come up against someone with magic, preferably someone nice who can’t understand his prejudices/wants to change them.

    Arthur loves adventures and quests so please throw some this way.

    He’s also a good training partner.

    Everything is going to be new for Arthur, he's from the literal dark ages so he'll need a bit of hand holding throughout his adjustment period.

    Arthur has 0% survival skills outside a castle with all it’s perks, so he’ll need some people around him to help.

    Aster Guest

    Hey there! Yeah I've been meaning to do this for a while acually so...*pushes Aster over towards @Jocelyn Morgenstern*

    Okay so here's the story, Aster here started out as a human, an incredibly talented writer who used to write stories for the Fae in her world. She was eventually "rewarded" for her skills and services for the Fair Folk by being allowed to basically become one of them, and it wasn't until it was too late that she fully understood what that meant. On her own world the Fair folk are unable to speak any untruths, feel human emotions, and they can't create anything. Even to pick up a pen and to make a mark against paper would cause Aster to turn to dust. Basically everything that made her, her, especially her ability to write has been stolen from her.

    Just before Aster was taken to Pandora she was given the ablity to feel, at the least, anger for what was done to her, and she really wants to become as human as she possibly can again. So what does this have to do with Jocelyn? Well, it was being painted with a human emotion -- in this case, anger -- that allowed Aster to feel it again. I'm thinking we could maybe do a plot, wherein Aster hires Jocelyn to paint her with various human emotions, just so that she can start to feel again? And they could like, develop their relationship over the course of these portrait sessions. If you wanted, I mean. It's not really the idea solution to any of Aster's problems, of course, but it's definately a start and I think it could make for a fun plot :)

    @Aster Ooooooh I think this sounds really interesting! She's not all that trusting of the fae, given her experiences in her world but she won't say no to being commissioned to paint a piece of artwork. It'll go hand in hand with her 'keeping as busy as possible' plan she's currently aiming at.

    Joce is free most of this current season, so really it's whatever works best for you!

    The Doctor and the Q: The Doctor loves to meet new people, and the Q has never met a Galiffreyan, plus would love to study the Tardis, and totally not make a copy of it for his own antics, and fun, if you were okay with such an idea. Anyway, what do you think of the potential idea I had in mind, of the Doctor meeting Q?

    @QII

    I think this would be great- the Doctor always likes to meet people from all different places. Maybe he could run into the Doctor while he's looking for the TARDIS? This would be around the end of November as he only recently got to Pandora

    @Scorpius Malfoy and Chise Hatori

    So both of these characters are socially awkward, but very nice teenagers with complicated family relations who love reading and study magic. They should totally meet!

    Chise can seen a bit cold at first because it takes her a while to warm up to people, but she gets attached very quickly to people who are kind to her and she could use having more friends, definitely.

    However, Chise is also stuck in Silverwood until next season, since that will be when she comes back to Pandora Town, so unless you can think of a reason for Scorpius to be in the woods they likely will only be able to meet next season.

    @Chise Hatori - so sorry I totally forgot to reply to this! However, now we're in the new season I suppose we can find an easier way for them to meet? Scorpius will be visiting Hogsmede quite a lot and will also be visiting the library in Pandora a lot so there's plenty of plotting potential!

    @QII and the Doctor- were you still interested in having them meet? At the moment he's keeping a low profile in Pandora town opening an antique shop but maybe they could come across each other when he's going about Pandora in the TARDIS?

    ------

    All my characters are presently open for plots for the winter season!

    Chise is going to be in Pandora Town from December 1st to the 14th, so maybe she and Scorpius could meet at the library? Chise is a big bookworm so she would definitely want to visit the place at least once!

    @Jocelyn Morgenstern and Tanaquil

    Well this could get uncomfortable fast, but in a fun way? Tanaquil was turned by Raphael recently- like the end of last season- and is still getting her vampire legs while trying to find a way to live with this new and occasionally uncomfortable lifestyle. I mean, if she's likely to kill her immediately that could be bad but I am always down for creating awkwardness for her over having to reconcile unlife with her formerly very pacifist and 'harm as little as possible' mindset.

    @The Doctor and Menolly

    I have ALWAYS wanted Menolly to meet one of the Doctors, just because she thinks she's as human as anyone else, but humans from her planet have the weirdest alien stuff going on under the skin- so to speak- and who would be better to break that to someone than the Doctor? or really, meeting him for any reason would just bring so much joy into my life. <3

    @The Doctor and Fitz

    Fitz is a HUGE Doctor Who fan and would likely pass out and start asking complicated physics questions. I'm not sure how they would meet, really, but if you have ideas I am definitely open to them!

    @QII Yeah I'll set it up and tag you in it!

    @Chise Hatori That sounds great- Scorpius will be under a mountain of books somewhere, want me to set it up and tag you in it?

    @Tanaquil Actually this could get awkward in a really weird way. Basically, Joce and Raphael teach together and I think she would like to imagine he's pretty clean and doesn't attack mundanes but maybe she could get the wrong end of the stick and think he's turned her on purpose/it's been a nasty attack? It'd hurt her because at the moment he's one of her actual only friends. I mean she'd got for Tanaquil if she saw her hurting mundanes/out of control in general, though she probably would just be aiming to restrain as she's not a fan of going to jail. Tagging @Raphael in this too as it could concern him!

    @Menolly Awh I would love this so much! I think she'd get on with twelve a lot and he'd really take to her! At the moment he owns an antique shop undercover in Pandora Town, or she could encounter him being out and about stepping out of the TARDIS or something? As he is about as subtle as a brick.

    @Leopold Fitz Oooh I like this, he's not had anyone fanboy over him yet, and he'd probably just be really confused. Maybe we could do the Menolly thread then this one? We can hash out a reason for them to meet then?

    @Jocelyn Morgenstern -For what it's worth, Tanaquil is not the 'go hunting' type- she's still getting used to having to deal with getting her own food that way in the most basic sense, and tends to try and live as much in harmony with mortals as she can- for now anyway. Fortunately that hasn't gone disastrously wrong yet. But I do think that her knowing @Raphael Santiago and some confusion coming from there- especially if he didn't tell Joce- could certainly arise. Though for her part, Tanaquil wouldn't be the type to try and create it- it would be a total misunderstanding, perhaps a bit exacerbated by Tana's own adjustment issues she's trying to keep under wraps.

    @The Doctor and Menolly- Well either one would work for her- she's pretty fearless, and has a pretty good spy sense, plus she loves antiques and the stories that go along with them. Maybe she's waiting outside and spots him coming out of the TARDIS to go in to work, or something? Most likely she'd be looking for old instruments, anything from Pern or dragon stuff.

    The Doctor and Fitz- Oh, he'd definitely get the fanboy stuff. XD I don't mind waiting until after we come up with a more concrete idea for them meeting. I'll let you know if/when something comes to me.

    @Tanaquil Oh yes, I meant it as a complete misunderstanding. Jocelyn has a lot of trust issues, so this won't help and she probably wouldn't stay to hear an explanation or to listen past what she's sure has happened. So it could just end up being a big misunderstanding? It sounds like it'll be interesting though!

    @Menolly Oooo I like that idea- that she spots him maybe doing runs to and from the TARDIS early morning. He'd just try to brush it off as a broom cupboard or something but if she's persistent then he'll let her dig a bit deeper. He'd want to hear all about her home too, but he probably won't open up so much on his side.

    @Jocelyn Morgenstern & @Tanaquil
    Just sliding in here, because: Yes, I'm very okay for this to become a big misunderstanding. Rapha's got a lot going awfully wrong this winter and mostly none of it really is his fault, so- adding another one to that, would be totally okay for me. :3 Awful misunderstandings, are, after all, his biggest weakness.
    As long as Jocelyn won't hurt Tana, and instead go to Raphael and confront him (would she do that?), I'm all game. For January, if it's okay?
    And I am so very glad/happy/honoured, that Raphael is one of Jocelyn's best friends <3
