Character Profile Outline
Okay, before anybody starts to think this is some weird idea, let me explain.
For anyone who knows how to write (and I mean, REALLY knows how to write), you understand that a good story has everything written out on paper first.  You know, stuff like Outlines, Plot Triangles, Character Profiles.  This might be of a challenge to some of you and tie you down, but unless you are capable of keeping every piece of information in your mind, this is a good resource to fall back on.  If you do not need this, then fine—you aren’t required to use it.  According to Science Fiction Writers of America, do character sketches and plot summaries but “do not let yourself be locked in by your planning documents.”
In time, I will devise a website that will help more than just creating your character.  On said site, I will post other outlines that will help YOU with YOUR writing, along with some very useful information.

How to Make a Good RP Plot
Plot Ideas
I decided to list various ideas for plots. I was bored.
1. Someone changes genders.
2. Someone changes age (younger is better).
3. Someone changes species.
4. Someone dies.
5. Someone dead is revived (long-defeated enemies are best).
6. Someone is pregnant.
7. Someone has amnesia.
8. Someone disappears randomly (maybe kidnapping, or death, or invisibility).
9. Someone gets a deformity/ailment (vampirism, lycanthropy, blindness, muteness, deafness, broken limbs, ect).
10. People are warped to another world (may be Earth, may be made up).
11. Plot twist (someone had an affair/has children/old enemies/turns out to be a spy/ect).
12. Someone falls in love.
13. Someone loses their powers.
14. Someone gains powers.
15. Someone commits a crime (therefore gaining/adding to a bounty).
16. Someone is a bounty hunter (really only works around people with bounties).
17. A strange creature appears (might be a person in disguise, or is the pet of a character who has disappeared).
18. Some

How to Make a Good RP Plot 2
Plot ideas - an in-depth look at my suggestions.
1. Changing genders.
What makes this a compelling plot hook? Well, in real life, gender swaps are rare and even more rarely unintentional. Usually they come about after many years of internal conflict, psychological testing and expensive surgery. But in speculative fiction (fantasy, sci-fi and anything else not quite "real"), it can as simple as an awry spell, a cursed piece of jewelry, you name it. It can even happen by swapping bodies with another person, possessing someone in some other manner, or by simply being a shapechanger. Usually, it will be unintentional.
But why is it interesting? Because of the way it changes how a person feels about themselves, the way others see them, and the way society treats them. Suddenly being thrust into a different social caste with new expectations on your behavior can be stressful (and stress = drama = fun, in RP terms). Looking down at yourself and seeing a different body, having to refit your cl

.::.The Long War Ahead.::.
- Fanfiction - Cross Over - The Long War Ahead.-
Loki glances towards his brother Thor, they were fighting for hours, the enemies showed no sign of giving up. He was clearly across the street, his brother busy at the next one down but able to see him from a distance. He didn't want to join a war or even yet help rescue Midgard from an invasion of demons and fallen angels.
Why Demons and Fallen Angels? Aren't they supposed not to exist? Guess he was wrong. It was his first encounter with these creatures and they were controlling human bodies or corpse that was lying around.
Loki swung his scepter, the side smacking into the possessed human head, a loud crack was heard as the possessed human fell down limp on the floor with blood oozing from the side of its head. This was a war, a big war and it seems more and more are just coming. The source of the trouble apparently was started when the devil's door was open due to some cult being the key to unlocking it. Well apparently two particular

.:What Makes Quality Movie/Book/Comic Concepts:.
On a regular basis, I see people shamelessly praising movies and books that they saw or read just because other people talked about it, or because it was heavily promoted. And I’ll think to myself “WOW that movie/book was crap”, and then ask them why they liked it—because I can think of no reason possible TO like it. And typically, the answer that I find is…NEITHER CAN THEY.
Bottom line, everybody—we all live in this heavily advertised world where individuality is promoted, encouraged, expected…or is it? What happens when everyone around you seems to like a movie or book, and you try to explain to them why it was poorly constructed? Of course, you’re going to make them mad…quite possibly for the very reason that they know you’re right, and that they didn’t think through the content they were praising to realize how basic it really was.
There’s plenty of things to consider while watching, reading, conceptualizing, a
