Design Rules

Posted 1 month, 1 day ago by RustHeart

For any design created by me

  • I do not care what you do with the character.  If you want to make them NSFW?  Go for it.  Want to make them problematic in some way?  You do you boo.  Once they leave my hands I do not control their use in anyway.  If you don't actively use the character I will not go out and try to take them back.
  • Change the design all you like unless it is a shayard.  In that case please look at the guidelines for their design.  If you want go outside of the guidelines of the species they will just not be considered a shayard anymore, which is totally fine if that is what you want to do with them.  I am not going to police what you do with your character. 
  • If you put them up for sale please notify me in case I want to make an offer to buy them back.  You are not obligated in anyway to sell them back to me.

For designs that were sold

  • Do not resell the design for more than you paid for unless more art has been added to the character.  My designs are not made for you to make a profit, they are made to be used as a character.

For designs that were traded

  • You may sell designs that were traded.

For designs that were free/given as a gift

  • Do not sell or trade unless new art has been added.
  • If no longer wanted either give them as a gift to someone else or send back to me.  Disregard this rule if more art has been added to the character.

Roleplay Comfort Meme

Posted 3 months, 29 days ago by RustHeart

I like to make friends with people I roleplay with.  If you don't want to just talk and chat about the roleplay don't ask for a roleplay.  I don't want to interact with a faceless stranger that I only know because of their characters.
I use AU versions of canon characters and I love talking about them, if you are against that for some reason we probably won't get along.
I love babbling about my characters and any kind of character discussions, but I don't just talk about my characters.  I will happily listen to you talk about your OCs.
I roleplay with human and humanoid characters and very rarely ferals.  I am not fan of roleplaying anthro characters.  You can use them but I probably won't myself.

I love building relationships with characters but very heavily prefer platonic ones.  I live for close friend relationships.  I also really like when characters just hate each other.
If you want a romantic relationship either find someone else or accept that you need to be very patient and need to allow it to slowly grow.  Also I am very happy with having no romantic relationships at all so I may not even want it to happen.  Don't count on it.


Roleplay examples


Locations: 

  • [✔] Discord
  • [✔] Notes
  • [✔] Forum
  • [✖] Comment
  • [✖] Chats
  • [✖] Skype
  • [✖] Google Docs
Discord preferred

Participants: 

  • [✔] One on one roleplays
  • [✔] Up to three people
  • [✔] Up to four people
  • [✖] Five or more people!
  • [✖] As big as possible!
I am used to one on one and three people groups but I am open to sometimes doing four people groups.

Post Length: 

  • [] One or two sentences
  • [✔] One or two paragraphs
  • [✔] Two to five paragraphs
  • [✔] More than five paragraphs
  • [✖] A few pages worth
My usual length is one paragraph but it changes depending on the situation.  Some posts will be very short and others can be ungodly long (rare).

I am comfortable role-playing with people who write: 

  • [] One or two sentences
  • [✔] One or two paragraphs
  • [✔] Two to five paragraphs
  • [✔] More than five paragraphs
  • [✖] A few pages worth
Its okay to make little posts every once in awhile but please don't have every single one just one or two sentences.  At the end of the day I just want something I can actually respond to.
Its okay to every once in awhile write a monster of a post but if you keep doing it I will get overwhelmed and feel like my posts aren't good enough for you.

Roleplay Requests: 

  • [✔] Anyone and everyone at any time!
  • [✔] When I ask for roleplays
  • [✔] From friends and acquaintances
  • [✖] From friends only
I love roleplays! I will roleplay with anyone as long as they have experience.  I don't really want to roleplay with very new writers.

[ Romantic Relationships ]

Shipping: 

  • [✔] Never 
  • [✔] Our characters know each other deeply
  • [✔] Our character know each other deeply, and I know I can trust the roleplayer
  • [✖] At the first sign of flirting!
  • [✔] Only if the roleplayer and I plan it
  • [✔] It depends on the character
I love platonic relationships and I am totally happy with no romantic relationships but if the characters work very well together and it happens naturally I am open to it.  Don't just assume that its going that way though.  If the characters seem to get along very well you can bring it up but that doesn't mean I will be okay with it.  I prefer platonic relationships and a lot of my characters are not interested in a romantic relationship.

If you want to ship with my characters: 

  • [✖] Talk to me about it from the start
  • [✔] Talk to me about it once our characters know each other
  • [✔] 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
If you go into a roleplay instantly wanting a romantic relationship with the characters I will get uncomfortable, that is not why I am roleplaying.  If you think they would do well together after the roleplay is going on then you can bring it up.

Speed: 

  • [✖] 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
Relationships are more realistic going slow in my option.

Smut: 

  • [✔] 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
Yeah no, I don't write any NSFW.  If we become good friends and we talk non sexual kinks I am okay with adding them sometimes into roleplays.

Romantic Artwork: 

  • [✖] Do not post it at all without talking to me
  • [✔] 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!

[ Dramatics ]

Violence: 

  • [✔] 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
I am a sadistic bastard.  Just don't permanently damage or kill my characters.  I am fine with no violence though!

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!
Draw my characters and I will love you forever.  Especially if it is angst.
