Please do not post in this thread, I dislike people interrupting my conversation with my partner.
I hope it was informative enough in the title, that it is a private OOC. Thank you. (:

Stage one: Crafting of the plot.

Hey, Veezly.
I hope this post finds you well.
Do you have a certain itch you want to scratch plot-wise?
So far, I am sure only that my character will at some point notice your boy/girl.
But as he is considered a semi-god, I believe we have to construct the vague idea of the settings.
For example, where and when the play is taking place? What year? Do we play alternative dimensions or the good old Earth as we know it? (:

Also, I like graphics in the posts - so, I might be creating some stuff on Photoshop to go along with the RP. I hope you do not mind my...picky side. Hehe. (:

I do not mind your picky side.
I would be a fool to not expect it, so please, go right ahead and work your magic with your Photoshop.

So long as you understand that I provide music to help drive the emotional state of my posts, whether you choose to listen to it or not is on you, it will not harm me, nor bother me if you don't.

Settings are complicated, I prefer choosing my worthy character first, since they are products of their environment, coming with a deck of cards that naturally forms their settings and plots based on their history.

However, I will refrain. {;
We can craft the setting first, but I will be picky, there are plenty of ideas that run with my characters, so what you and I pick will ultimately decide the character I choose. I cannot place a character in an environment that did not make them who they are, seems a but silly.

Lets make the plots first, then we can place the setting based on the plot, playing around with our options.

I will write out my ideas on a separate file to keep them safe and edit them if needed. I will post them in soon.
If you have anything to share, or enlighten me on, please do while you wait to hear my offerings.
{;

I do not mind music supporting posts. Sometimes, I do it myself. Rarely though, heh.
Well. The thing is, my character has the memory erasure power. The initial idea was that he can void one off of pleasant/unpleasant memories but, somewhat, he himself cannot use that power on himself.

If, say, we pick the good old Earth - I can only think of him being a psychologists. The idea of erasing step by step, little by little, troublesome memories of his patients...it kind of lingers in my mind. Until one day, they do not even have the memory of ever going to him, of ever meeting him. Which...hm, I suspect will trigger on a subconscious level his desire to be remembered?

It kind of hits me as a quote I read once, from a movie I cannot remember, "If you could keep one memory of your life and be reborn with it, which one would you pick?" The concept is very interesting.

Sure we can spice it up with other, non-player, characters who are semi-gods. But not really sure why else he'd be unique with his memory erasure and contribute to the whole plot.

I kind of want the dilemma to be felt - "do I erase this punk's memory or not?"

Nothing much to say on my part, I believe.

I do not like that this does not tell me when you've replied.
Sorry I may be a bit later then I expected.

I like the idea of erasing, little by little in the end, wanting to be remembered.
It's worth something.
And, at what lengths will he go to be remembered. Sounds like fun to me.

And, being a patient will be easy for my to bring in a twisted character.

Though how will he handle the noise? I suspect his patients wouldn't be quiet, far from it sometimes.

I'm thinking free roaming patient, I don't believed I want them institutionalized, well maybe.
Should we have it start off where they would first meet them in the worst shape possible, maybe in the Institution before getting better slowly and soon able to come on their own?

Ahaha, the noise. I believe for the most of it, he will be able to control his urge to punch something.
But then again, you will get to enjoy his inner frustration I will be describing. (:
Probably, we can have that little accident when he wasn't able to control it and snapped at your boy/girl. Who knows.

I also prefer the patient free roaming. We either do it as you said, or he meets them by chance at a night club, about to do something very bad - up to you what. Although, no idea why my brain wandered off to getting their regular dose of drugs even though I never played with a drug-addict involved in the plot. But then again, if he meets them free roaming, he can't really force it into his office to have sessions with them?

So, your idea is the better pick.

Sounds good to me, I will be grinning ear to hear in hopes to see what you can pull out from the depths of his frustrated mind.

Though, I want to ask, how aware would you like my character.
The one I have my eyes set on, I can see getting drugs.
If we go a free roaming rout we can go with a plot where they live in a home, but a nurse or a special doctor is proscribed to see them every so many days.
So he would have to, but not really at the same point. Could mosey away as well.

Maybe they so happen to find out their little get away spot and convinces them to return home several times?

just an idea.

Hey!
Sorry for the late reply. I fell asleep and then had to wake up early.

Now then,

Cognitively speaking? Hah, this is a very interesting question.
How messed up can you make them? As in, skill-wise.
Because, if you are to play someone very disturbing, it is not going to put me off. I have no problem at all. However, it will be more like - putting to test your own RP skills but at the same time testing mine, ahaha.

If you make them into someone who is not only suffering some trauma/mental disorder but also fighting drug addiction...Add to it murder. I wanted in the plot a partner who can describe the effect of having killed someone in the past. Whether you will play Sigmund's defense mechanism to cope or not - up to you.

But...cutting it down to purely preferences - anything is fine as long as you don't use regression as a defense mechanism. I am not sure how I will play with regression (not up to deal with a childish behavior which goes down to being reverted back to the age of 5, per se). So, in regard of cognitive awareness - surprise me. (:

Agree. Let's do it like this then. But how about, to have the first meeting making sense, have my character appointed as the new psychologist who had to visit your character for the first time? But well....nobody's home? (:

Make sense why would he (Zheil) roam around at night and just decide to randomly pay attention to your character. Because if we already start with adjusted psychologist visits - I don't see how we can do a first meeting happen, so.

Probably we can play it out as your character's state is worsening - a psychologist had to step in or was required to. Else, I do not see why (plot-wise) an immortal being would bother - really. Other than that, even if he was to find your character taking drugs when already had visited him. Thinking on it, he would rather bother only when he has sessions with them but outside the office/home - why bother?

I only see him bothered because of the fact he had to bother and go visit them at home, but nobody was there - then he had to go through the hassle of loud music in some club to see you there taking drugs: lovely combination.

Maybe I am rushing through it too much and I miss probable openings for a different first encounter, but hey, just an opinion.

I can't wait to hear from you.

Update: If you read the post before the update, do know - I added something.

Ah, my first post got so long.
And for the sake of being more distinguishable - post #2

Plot related, we can just have your character visit him in the office for the first session after a night of consuming drugs. First impression matters, as they say. (;

So, if you have any other possible scenarios to kick off with the first meeting - shout out. Even if you decide to completely disregard the idea built up so far and go after something else. It's fine with me.

And a question, no, two.
As I am crafting the character further and soon to update his profile:

- Is your character going to be a human?
- What gender are they going to be? Because I will construct my character based on the gender he has to partner up with.

I wish to test my skills, I want a twisted, but twisted and messed up can take plenty of forms, its hard to choose just which one I want to try.

I look forward to the first session after their long night of drug abuse.
Along with your characters way of trying to be remembered after detaching his memories, if he does that is.

To answer your question about playing a human character, yes I play allot of characters with abilities and such, but I want my full focus on the mind, so to keep it simple while I play my mind games, I would like to keep them human.
If you feel otherwise then do tell me, I will see what I can pull out from my closet.
I plan on playing a male, the challenge of this story alone will be tough, I'd like to stay comfortable with the gender I've played the most.
If you wish me to play a female, merely ask.

I would prefer to keep the character not as a secrete but, rather, describe them through out the posts better to have you experience them, then seeing a sheet.
Keeps the surprises fresh in my opinion.
If you wish for a sheet though I can provide, but it will be basic.

Damn, that means I have to roll the sleeves up and test my own skills altogether with yours, ahaha. I like it. It's challenging.

Actually, you do me a favor of playing a human - if they were something else, the gap between them might not be that big. Age-wise, experience-wise, perspective-wise. So, it might be actually a leveled up version of the RP, if it weren't with a human.

Alrighty then. Male it is. (;

And I would prefer to experience him as we go. That's why the sheet I have so far involves only the semi-god powers. Personality and mentality - I would like you to experience them within the play. (:

So, what do we have so far:

Summarized Plot: A semi-god arrives to planet Earth approximately 200 years ago. Due to his powers and the depth of his knowledge of the mind, he goes after occupation that can possibly hide who he is - a psychologist.

One day he receives several folders, describing an interesting case which is to be appointed to him.

On the day when he has to meet his new patient, he is not surprised to see the state of the human that walks in through his office door, apparent to have abused drugs in the last 24 hours.

Paired races: Semi-god and human.
Genders: MxM

Am I missing something? (:

We are set so far, and if anything else comes to mind we can privately talk about it in the PM chat we have already, so no one gets a warning and children don't cry because the read the wrong forum.

Now it's all about setting up the PM chat, which you can do.
I will of course be using music, images, and my narrative writing style.
I have a few psychological friends at my side to provide me ideas in helping me spice things up for you.
More minds are better then one.

Yeah, but my IQ dropped drastically. I need sleep, it's 4AM for me.
So, in case you have muse right now - I can add you to friend list, which enables you to PM me.
And once I wake up, I will reply to you. If not, I will create it later with a cup of coffee in hand.

P.S. Oh, you are going all out, ahahaha. It will be fun, I am sure. (:
Goodnight, Veezly.

Your offerings have force my hand to spice things up, I have not been this excited for a story like this in a long time, and I hope to meet the challenge it brings.

But yes, do rest well, I added you and have sent back a request. But I too will head to bed, as I am tired from my ordeals today and all the work that had to be done.
Goodnight.

May your dreams suit you well tonight.

Hey.
Just letting you know that I went ahead and selfishly put the settings to the night before the first meeting.
It enables you with opportunities to expand your reply. I did not want to have it set one-two weeks prior or minutes before he walked in the office. However, if you want time change in the plot - I will change it.

In fact, if you want any changes in future - I will comply.

And...my bad. I tried to not go overboard with the count of words but...it kind of is a long post. '_'
So, let the fun begin. (:

Do no worry, you posts did not bother me in the least on its word count, the detail is lovely, and I love the setting you put.
Nothing needs changing, and I hope my post is reasonably worth your reading.

Keep me posted if you'd like anything changed as well on my head. {;
