Early 30s.

Non-Binary. Queer.

I role-play on RPR and through Discord (preference order).

I am currently open to DnD 5e tabletop campaigns (play-by-post).

All continuities are separate unless explicitly stated.

Offline Commitments
From January to May, September to mid-December, and mid-January to May, I am currently working/commuting 12 and a half hours a week, plus just under 3 hours commute per day, during term time. I do note-taking for three students (two in-person, one remote). I love the job. I get to immerse myself within learning and help someone out at the same time. However, it does take up a lot of my week-time and there are likely to be days where I get home from work drained, with little to no drive to role-play. Please bear with me.

For the rest of the year, during summer I do exam invigilation for a month and then the rest of the time, I work from home doing proofreading and copy-editing. I essentially alternate between four jobs over the course of the average year. Freelance life!

In short? RL comes first.

I do not want RP to feel like an obligation for anyone. It should be fun!

I try to reply to role-playing threads at least every 1 - 4 days, up to a week, depending on the pace of the role-play. I post at minimum over 10 lines and my average is around 1 - 2 paragraphs. I can comfortably post more depending on the content of the storyline and how many people are involved. I write in the third person, past tense only.

I am sometimes delayed regarding posting at the pace I prefer to hold myself to due to my main job, which involves deadlines. There are quiet weeks which leave a lot of time for RP and weeks where I do very little other than maintaining myself (aka sleeping, eating, away-from-laptop breaks) and working.

I have a strong preference for low technology / medium - high fantasy settings but I am willing to consider sci-fi and post-apocalyptic if the story is particularly good and if I have a character idea that fits.

I am comfortable with gore, violence and horror themes, so long as it is appropriate to the setting and plot, rather than being thrown in just for the sake of being contrary.

I have no issue with explicit sex or sexual acts but I will not engineer a role-play deliberately based around them, nor will I tailor situations and settings so then it happens. Character chemistry and plot is important.

I will always respect the comfort zone of my role-playing partner(s). This means that I am comfortable employing the Fade-to-Black and 'Let's not and say we did' mechanics where the preference for such is raised.

I will not change my characters. If they don't fit, they don't fit and that's fine. I am not going to make my shy laboratory experiment bold and confident, nor am I am going to make my brooding, introverted mage outgoing and the life of a party, for example. While change is possible through long-term role-play, there is an extent to which this would happen and the pace would be realistic.

IC is IC, OOC is OOC. I am strict about maintaining that distinction and have no tolerance for IC drama taken OOC or vice versa. Haven't got the time or patience for it. Play nicely.

Rave Reviews

FadedTapestry is an amazingly talented writer, with an aura of both enchantment and authenticity. There is an addictive quality to their writing that makes you feel excited every time they respond to the role play. I truly think that everyone must give them a chance, because trust me, you will not be disappointed. Kind and understanding Wonderful writer - Aya
Vene is articulate in so many ways. From their writing style down to the heavy plot and developmental growth of each character. Don’t believe me click any of them and start reading each one has passion, time and twisted creativity to them. Creative ideas Wonderful writer - Nekomanics
