Read the title, my friend. No, I don't have any ideas at the moment, shocking as that may be. Other than the fact that there has to be mature romance and obviously language. So... Yeah. Title just about sums it up.
Sure, I have a few ideas.
Alright. Can you give sort of short descriptions of your ideas? I usually do sort of supernatural type RPs.
I was thinking we do something sci-fi. I will need a minute to brainstorm a little more but I was thinking two astronauts who hate each other become the only ones on the ship after they crashland on a remote planet and they learn to survive together. Maybe with a bit fo romance entangled? Or maybe one of them is from a slave race in the future and she treats him like dirt like a high upper class lady but as time progresses and they work and survive together, stranded in the jungle on a revived Mars, they fall in love?
I like the latter a bit better, but both sound like they'd be fun.
Yeah it is better. Want to start? I love to jump in while skipping charries. They are too time consuming.
Alright. I want the girl, though, if that's okay with you.
Good, I want to be the guy. Let me read over the plot while you start. I get caught up with my rps. Too many.
Give me a bit to figure out how to start. I'm not quite used to sci-fi and I'm terrible at starting.
I would suggest we start in the ship before we crash land in the jungle?
Denfehlath glances at the ship's boards, getting to her feet and pushing her dark red hair out of her pale green eyes. "I'm gonna try to get some rest. Come get me if anything important happens," she says, starting back toward her room. She wasn't sure quite how long it would be before they landed, but she was growing bored of the same surroundings... darkness and asteroids... At least it's something most don't get to see up close.
Muhammed steered the ship. He was Den's, as they called her, slave. Den's little cousins were bombarding him with questions and things until he told them to go sit down as they were nearing mars. He needed to focus before they landed to refuel.
Den lays on her bed, staring up at the bottom of the bed above her. "Lorethan, Rokkel, Mirani, there should be a major asteroid field somewhere nearby. We need Muhammed to be able to pay attention to controlling the ship. Muhammed, how much farther is it?" she calls. "Last I checked, we were behind schedule. We should probably skip the refueling station."
"Ma'am we will pass the refueling station first and without we might not even make it to our destination. We should not take the risk. I would highly suggest against it" he said quietly with low confidence. He knew she would say no. This would not work.
"And if we stop, we will only be farther behind schedule than we already are. I am sure you can figure out some way to do without the stop," Den says icily. "Your job is to pilot this ship, not to question my decisions. You would do well to remember that."
"Yes ma'am" he replied quietly. Soon after, the asteroid belt came near. They had skipped the refueling station and they were halfway through. He maneuvered around. Suddenly the twins came up and started yelling questions. He tried to answer them but he was beginning to get distracted.
Den growls something unintelligible under her breath, getting up and beginning to walk to the front to scold her cousins when she felt the ship lurch, throwing her against the wall. "What is going on?" She walks to the front of the ship, arms crossed over her chest.
"Um, the fuel is getting low. The engines are trying to shut themselves off. We aren't going to make it to Earth. We have to try to get to the red planet" he said quickly, his hands flying over the controls, trying to get the ship stable. The monitors were going crazy. He grabbed the wheel trying to steady out their path. This did not look good.
Den curses under her breath, running a hand through her hair angrily. "We'll have to make it to the closest planet, certainly."
