I just realized I forgot to do an introduction, so let me get that out of the way.

I'm Rachel. :)

I was a founding member of a massive Wheel of Time roleplay and loved it there. I was there for.. Shit, something like 5 years, before my disabilities kept me from keeping up.

I've never quite found a roleplay quite like that place. I've dabbled here and there, but that's it. Really, it was more of a collaborative novel than anything else. I would love to get back to writing like that, instead of what roleplaying tends to be nowadays. I loved the expansive plotlines and the ever-evolving world. Really, nothing I've seen gives me the same feeling. Or, worse, if I do feel there's a possibility, things devolve into very limiting cliques. If you aren't one of the "popular" characters, you miss out on almost all of the massive plots. Honestly, that's really quite depressing, because I find that, a lot of times, the characters with smaller roles can end up contributing a lot to the fabric of the story. (If that makes sense.)

Anyway, you'll probably see Sophie around here most, and maybe other characters of mine.

My main writing journal is [personal profile] pens_and_roses, and you're more than welcome to friend it. It's friend's only, but I friend anyone who friends it. You're also welcome to friend this journal, which is my main. :)

Anyways.. That's about it for me! Now I'm going to go catch up on posts. XD

*waves!* I'm pretty sure that I've stumbled over your writing journal before, though I can't quite remember! In any case, welcome! :D Looking forward to seeing more of your posts!

(And I know the feeling... it's hard to find just the right place to fit in and get involved!)

One on ones are a little more fun for that... you can share the responsibility equally and still get some pretty epic stories unfolding! Of course, the major downside is that because there are only two people, you might not get ideas as intricate or as crazy as if more people were thrown together and brainstorming. (Then again, it's possible to get a clearer vision of what is happening and what events might transpire when there are only two people inputting)...

XD I think I'm biased in favor of one on ones, though. Far less awkward meetings!

Man, good luck with 'Wrimo! I have never tried it, given it's always during midterms for me!

Ooh, that's probably a good way to start! Best of luck! One more week to prepare, at any rate!

I must say I share your sentiment on what's now considered roleplaying nowadays. The organic creation of a world and the collaborative story are wonderfully involving -- but the continuous meet-and-greet threads and pointless plotlines aren't very satisfying at all. It's tremendously hard to find a good rp!

I'll have to pick your brain on the construction and theory behind your WoT RP -- like what format it was in, how it was organized, etc. I'm a sucker for roleplay theory!

Welcome, welcome!!
