Bookworm

Hello, person who stumbled onto my profile.
My name is Bookworm, previously LittleHunter. I normally go by K, or Kat by close friends. My roleplay experience has been going onto 5 years now. I write in paragraphs, and will not post unless I manage a five paragraphs limit - being that I usually write with six to seven. My flaw is that I tend to be a perfectionist, so I pay close attention to detail if possible.

Let me see... My favored genres are mostly historical, high to low fantasy, grimdark, and modern fantasy. I love D&D, this site led me to the game. I prefer one on one stories, being that any groups I join seem to fall apart. I posses a sort of dark humor and outlook on life. It reflects in my writing, for I love to be realistic.

As you can tell by my username - I LOVE reading. A professed bibliophilia. There is not a moment in my day where I have a book close to me. My goal in life is to become a Librarian. Other than literature, I adore history. My mind is focused more on the past rather than the future really. What I would give to have the ability to time travel! What a fantasy I constantly live in it seems.

The reason why I joined this site is a bit complicated to explain. I first started on this site to find an escape from my own mind. Yes. My own head. Maladaptive daydreaming, also known as excessive daydreaming - a disordered form of dissociative absorption associated with vivid and excessive fantasy activity that often involves elaborate and fanciful scenarios. It was enough to bring anxiety whenever I had to interact with the real world. My own escape, my own sanctuary with a price. It is a fear of mine that I may lose that barrier between reality and fantasy one day. I may be reading in the morning at one point, only to find the day is nearly over all because I 'zoned out'.

A friend of mine suggested I go into roleplaying to help. Hard to do that when you are an extreme introvert with trust issues. That was when I found RPR. It was slow at first, but gradually I found myself getting into a pattern of writing with others. And now, my excessive daydreaming is helping me write. I even found a very special person on RP Repository that helped me come out of my shell. We have been together for maybe as long as I have been on this site.

The reason why I bring up my little 'addiction', is because it has gotten me into trouble a few times in my life. When a sudden boost of inspiration hits or if a partner gives me a wonderful post, I tend to retreat into my head. Because of this... I have a habit to disappear briefly.

I digress. For the longest time I have only written with one person but now that he has moved closer to me so I may be on less than I usually did. I am grateful to have joined this community, for it has brought me an alternative way of dealing with my anxiety and a new escape that is outside of my daydreaming. But most of all - RPR has given me someone who I never thought existed and brought color to my once grey world.

If you wish to join me in writing, do send me a PM. I must admit firstly, I am a bit shy and a little picky in my writing choices. But once you crack my shell, I am a warm and loyal writer.

Adieu~!

Rave Reviews

Priscilla (played by Bookworm)
Priscilla is a delightfully mischievous character. Her wordplay is sharp and fun, her powers are creative, and her bubbly and playful attitude plays beautifully with her wiser and more serious side when push comes to shove. She's a character whose own actions drive the plot forward, and she gets herself into trouble more often than not, leading to some wonderful drama and tense situations. Her flaws are dark and realistic, and her reactions to the world around her are always lovely to read. - Gear
Bookworm and I have had an roleplay going since April, and not once have I ever felt that the story we've been making together had staggered in quality. If that isn't enough to convince you to rp with her, (and it should) then perhaps her wonderful personality, eye for detail, adaptability, and lovingly written characters will. I'm always looking forward to a post from her, and when our current story ends I may just immediately ask to start a new one! Rp with her, you won't regret it! Wonderful writer Long-term partner - Gear
