PM — Dove

  • PM communication is strongly preferred for thread requests and thread links, as Lin has a bad memory and can better keep track of things here.

Discord — linwashere#5396

  • Great for bouncing ideas for threads and plots or just chatting! Feel free to message when I'm in a game or idle. I'll get back to you. 8U


The floating gas cloud called Lin has faded in and out of existence on 'Souls for over fourteen years, complete with a variety of flowery responsibility hats. When the cloud talks, it always seems to end up frothing at its non-existent mouth about writing and character development and plots. Cartoons, video games and boffer swords fall out the cloud from time to time. Nobody's sure if the cloud is actually real or if we're all just collectively imagining it because it often does a lot more plotting and roleplaying with itself than with anybody else.

What we do know is that the cloud is VIRTUALLY A BOARD TROLL whose mission is to play characters designed to throw a wrench into current boardwide trends, just to see what happens (see: Razekiel, Judas, Gethsemane). Alternatively, we are concerned the cloud might have attachment issues because the cloud also seems plays the same small handful of characters basically forever (see: Maluki, Micah). The cloud also spits out poorly drawn art sometimes that it exchanges for better drawn art by other people, but it never seems to advertise that anywhere.

The cloud is annoying. Every time we think we're rid of the cloud it comes back again. Someone call a meeting.

RP Info

Thread & Plot Information

  • Send me a message by PM or on AIM! I love to juggle ideas and am open to most anything!
  • I prefer not to plan out plots in heavy detail so that I may roleplay my characters naturally.
  • I love LASKY and am willing to use most of my new or old characters for it.
  • I am happy to pick up temps to help with plots, but I avoid Preybot.
  • I prefer short-posts (<200 words) back and forth for dialogue-heavy threads.

Replies and Speeds

  • My reply speed is typically anywhere from a couple days to 2 weeks.
  • I write for quality over quantity and have wildly variable post lengths as result. I don't track word counts unless I need them.
  • I don't have a preference for my partner's word count as long as I have enough to work with.
  • I am slower than average and take on less threads during LARP season in the spring and fall every year.

Archival

  • I prefer IC endings, but OOC endings are fine when the thread is pushing a month or two.
  • I love follow-up threads and developing relationships past meet-and-greets!
  • Instead of reviving archived threads or marking them DND I would prefer to start a more timely follow-up thread.

Miscellaneous Information

  • You do not need to ask me to perform minor PP for my characters. I'll contact you if I have any problems with it.
  • I'm happy to do mature threads and do not mind blood, gore or mature themes. However, I will imply or fade in and out during sexually explicit segments.
  • I generally do not join all-welcome threads marked for more than two characters unless it has been plotted or requested of me.
  • If you have an Adoptable you think I might be well-suited for, feel free to throw information at me!
