Running around the castle is exhausting! Liam thought to himself as he made yet another wrong turn and ended up face-to-face with the portrait of the Fat Lady. "Oh, um, hello!" he shouted as he wondered if she'd let him in. After shoving his yellow and black tie into his robes he started petting the portrait, wondering how he could possibly get in. "Are you ticklish?" he asked her, blushing at asking a woman, even one in a portrait, such a question.

Do we start from the first paragraph above? If so, that would mean our character needs to get into the Gryffie CR? I guess my question is, what is the main plot line of our RP? Many thanks

The plot is whatever you want it to be. My blurb was just an example.

I'm looking for a partner to do this task with. My character is a quiet 14 year old so would prefer someone she would logically interact with.

@Faithful-Puppy - I've got a 17-year-old, nature-obsessed guy. May not interact logically with your character, but it could be fun? Want to partner up?

Character Development Form

Character Name: Elliot Moss

Character appearance:

Curly dark hair, blue eyes, pale skin, rather thin, walks with his head down and often rocks to self-soothe, doesn't often smile. Likes to sit in a way that takes up as little space as possible.

Character personality: Outgoing but to an extent-needs time to rest after social activities. He has poor social skills due to autism, doesn't like loud noises and is clumsy, awkward and rather lonely. Elliot can become very fixated on things and likes his routines, but also has a good sense of humor and is a very sweet person. He is very easily frustrated, ambitious, clever, and sometimes struggles to focus. He cares little for how others see him and isn't afraid to be himself.

Character hobbies: Loves to read and write, sleeps quite out of boredom/depression, loves to ride bike and dance(only when alone), likes to stim and does so frequently, likes to build things and is very resourceful, loves cats.

Please answer the following questions about your character in as much detail as possible (at minimum 3 sentences each). Bullet point answers will not be accepted for these questions.

- How does your character see him/herself?
Elliot has very low self-esteem, he often wishes he were neurotypical so he could have friends and a better social life while at the same time wish others were more like him so they could understand him. Sometimes he feels like he is great just the way he is, just wishes others could see it. He sometimes feels stupid even though he isn't because he struggles to focus and process stuff sometimes.

- What is one ambition that your character has?
He wants to make one mark on the earth, whether that is saving lives as a Healer(his dream job) or something as simple as donating blood to a muggle hospital. Elliot often feels very inadequate because he isn't very independent as of now, and while he wants to be able to be living on his own, have a job and a degree, fall in love and start a family, he fears those things aren't feasible because he's autistic so he at least wants to do something worthwhile, anything.

- What is something your character would like to change in his/her life?
He would like to have a better social life. He tries very hard to make friends but struggles greatly to relate to people. He often feels like a ghost hovering around while everyone else around him is living.

- What motivates your character?
The desire to succeed in the career he wants most. Academics are very important to him, even though they don't always come easily. It's hard for him to stay motivated, to focus, and not be overwhelmed but he loves the sense of satisfaction he gets when he sees his marks or looks at his completed project.

- What frightens your character?
He is terrified of being alone, of never being loved, that others are repulsed by him deep down. He thinks very lowly about himself, and he is terrified others do as well. The worst part is he may never know if this is true or not.
