Greetings to all of you. I am Eiren Spiritbird. He name isn't so much rpg as it is magickal. I honestly am not big into the rpg thing, however I have come to this site to try to cure my fear of writing.

This fear isn't that I don't think I can do it, it is a fear of not being able to get the stories out as they need to be.
I know there was a request for a writing sample, sadly, I do not have one.

As for what I am uncomfortable with writing about, I guess I won't know until I get there. As a female with a male point of view on things, there really isn't anything that makes me squicky. I do however love a nice cup of tea with a dirgable ride.

What I am interested in writing is a new twist on vamipres, werewolves, witches and the like... Underworld fiction is where I love to play. The shadows are far more fun to romp in.

I have read and understand the site rules and terms.

Welcome to WET, Eiren. 

During the application process, we tend to ask a series of questions, some silly, some serious.  It's a feeling you out process, getting to know you.  As well, the information asked for  here is all vital.  You do need to state your age, provide a writing sample, etc.

So, as for questions... hmm. 

So, you like Underworld, with vampires, werewolves, witches... what would be your ideal character, for such a roleplay with someone?  What is their background, their motivation?  What are they trying to accomplish, and what are the challenges against them?

I am 27, and a female. What I am trying to do is put some new spins on vampire lore. I am looking to change the aversion of all things "holy" to what they loved the most while living. What I would love to do is get a story lone going where someone is turned vamp and the thing they loved the most was a person. And dealing with those trials. Love at a distance. Loving someone so much that it could kill you.

I will have a writing sample shortly for you. Smiley

Well, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding people willing to rewrite the paranormal genre with you here.  We have a ton of creative and talented writers that are also usually happy to help give newer writers tips and pointers also.

If there was a competition for who could kill the most Anne Rice vampires in a set amount of time who would win, Buffy or Anita Blake? and why?

I am going to have to give a third option. The two ladies while talented may not have the wits to kill some of Ann's host of vampires. I think that Sonja Blue from the sunglasses after dark series by Nancy A. Collins would have a better chance. She uses her mind to get the vampires to turn on one another. While she will slay a few by her own hand, she is the work smarter not harder type. I love smart slayers, ones that embrace the power of a woman. We are a crafty bunch.

Here is my Writing Sample:

Hidden by shadow a single flame violates the dark, raising to meet a cigar. Breathing deeply he unleashes the putrid smoke into the air. The girl lain at his feet was just another face that he would have nightmares about. She hadn't been much, about five foot three, maybe a hundred pounds wet. But she did not need to die.  Kneeling next to her, he took a moment to brush the red hair from her face. Blue Eyes, pretty, and dead, what a waste. These thoughts came to him at every crime scene. Her face had tear stains, her dress torn and stained with her blood. Uniforms swarmed about him keeping the onlookers at bay, the reporters salivating for details, and leaving him alone to do his job.

He was Detective Joe Marks, the only one in the city who could solve crimes with just a single drop of blood. Blood held memories, held the truth to ones life and death.  The memories that remained in the blood gave him enough to make sure justice was served so another life could go on.

Pulling a cigar cutter from his pocket he cut the fire from it and place the reminder in his breast pocket. Never let a good Cuban go to waste. He lifted the young girls hand and brought her wrist to his lips and kissed it gently. I'm sorry for this, but you need to find peace, and I need justice. Letting her wrist fall gently to her side, he bent over her to see the blood on her chest, taking an eye dropper he siphoned some blood off the surface of her skin. Raising it to his lips, he squeezed her life into his mouth and the truth was revealed in a flash of ecstatic pain.
