Came across this and I figured now that I'm getting more into RP'ing, I'd fill it out to let people know where I stand!
The original!

Bold are my top preferences, anything that isn't strike'd out I'm indifferent towards or am okay with depending on the situation.

Role Play Basics

[ Locations ]

I am comfortable doing;
- Comment 
- Chats
- Notes - "I'm okay with notes, but don't be surprised if I suddenly stop replying because I forgot all about them."
- Forum - "Never tried!"
- Skype
- Google Docs - "Never tried, but willing."
- Other - :star: Discord! - "I use discord pretty exclusively. That's by far the best place to reach out to me."

[ Participants ]

I am comfortable with;
- One on one role plays. - "Ideal"
- Up to three people. - "I'm okay with this! Especially if I know the other participants well-"
- Up to four people. - "I've done group roleplays before. It can be fun but it's pretty stressful, so I'd prefer to keep it smaller."
- Five or more people!
- As big as possible!

[ Post Length ]

I usually write about;
- One or two sentences. - "Prefer this for headcanons."
- One or two paragraphs.
- Two to five paragraphs.
- More than five paragraphs. - "Unlikely, unless I get really into it."
- A few pages worth.

I am comfortable role-playing with people who write:
- One or two sentences. - "Again, only really for headcanons! I need something to work with- ^o^"
- One or two paragraphs.
- Two to five paragraphs.
- More than five paragraphs.
- A few pages worth. - "I'm more than okay with this, just don't expect me to write the same amount LOL"

[ Reply Speed ]

I usually reply;
- ASAP (within minutes)
- Within the same day - "I try to reply within a day or two."
- Within the same month - "That's all I can really promise..."
At random/variable times - "It really depends on how inspired/motivated I am, and my situation irl."

I expect my partner to reply;
- Within an hour
- Within the same month - "I don't expect you to reply any faster than me!"

[ Reminders ]

I'm okay with getting reminders to reply to an RP:
- After an hour
- In a week/a few weeks - "If I haven't replied in more than a week, feel free to give me a gentle nudge. I may have forgotten."

[ Role-play Requests ]

I like getting requests;
- Anyone and everyone at any time!
- When I ask for role-plays. - "Still with preference for friends/closer acquaintances"
- From friends and acquaintances.
- From friends only. 

Romantic Relationships

** Important: Communication is the key to a real life relationship, it shouldn't be abandoned for a fictional on either! Be sure to talk to your partners when considering romance!

[ Shipping ]

I am comfortable shipping my characters;
- Never. 
- Our character know each other deeply.
- Our character know each other deeply, and I know I can trust the role-player. - "I'm pretty wary and picky about shipping, so it's usually restricted to friends."
- At the first sign of flirting!
- Only if the role-player and I plan it. - "I prefer to have it develop naturally, but the occasional planning is fine."
- It depends on the character.

If you want to ship with my characters:
- Talk to me about it from the start. - "Please don't. That puts me off."
- Talk to me about it once our characters know each other. - "If we've been rp'ing/hc'ing for a while and you're starting to ship our characters, don't be afraid to bring it up with me! I will be honest how I feel about it though." 
- Talk to me about it once they both have some feelings for each other.
- Talk to me about it when they finally decide that want to go beyond hugging.

[ Speed ]

When shipping my characters, I like the romance to happen;
- Swift as lightening!
- Fast, but not super fast.
- Happens in about three months.
- Slow and steady wins the race.
- Slugs know what's up!
- My relationships know no speed. They happen if they happen. - "It really depends, and varies from character to character."

[ Smut ]

When my characters gets intimate, I prefer;
- To skip the act entirely. 
- To write the build up, but skip the act.
- To write the act only if it is very special, but otherwise skip it.
- To write the act all the way through. - "I go all out. But it's up to my rp partner! I'm chill with whatever you're comfortable with. AND ONLY IF YOU'RE 18 OR OLDER."

[ Romantic Artwork ]

When it comes to artwork depicting our relationship please;
- Do not post it at all without talking to me. - "Unless we're close friends, please ask me before posting ship art! I'll likely say yes-"
- Post it if it is cuddles and hugs.
- Post it if it is kisses.
- Post it if it is much more.
- Do not post it at all if it depicts sexual acts!
- Do not post it where I can see it, but draw what you like!


** Important: Always be sure to communicate with your partner individually if you think you are about to go outside their comfort zones even just the slightest bit!!

[ Violence ]

When it comes to violent situations, I am comfortable with;
- No violence at all!
- I'm fine with verbal arguments!
- Some violence, like a paper cut, or an accidental elbow to the face.
- Mild violence, such as punching, kicking, hair pulling.
- Violence, such as stabbings.
- Beyond violence, such as torture and more. - "Depends, but I'm generally not for graphic torture."
When it comes to violence, I'm pretty lax, although I'm not used to writing it, so it can be a little challenging for me. It's up to my partner!
If you are going to do something violent, please;
- Don't do it at all.
- Talk to me about it first.
- Surprise me! 

[ Dramatic Artwork ]

- Do not post any dramatic scenes that that happened between our characters.
- Talk to me about it before posting!
- Post what you like!  


[ General Artwork ]

I am fine with art being done of my characters;

- If you don't know me/barely know me - "It's always a nice surprise! As long as it's not smutty or gory."
- If we're acquainted - "Please!! I don't mind NSFW content if you ask me first."
- If we're friends/close friends - "It can literally be anything, idc, I love you."

[ Crack ]

When it comes to crack, I'm okay with;
- General crack - "Yeah, sure. I don't consider anything canon until we agree on it."
- Crack shipping - "NSFW art? Hell yeah. Not big on romantic crack shipping tho."
