Greetings! My name is Brinny--I'm 26 y/o, Gemini, and am currently in school to get a degree in Middle Grades Education in English or Social Studies--and boy am I new.
I've put off playing this game FOREVER, sticking to WoW and then Wildstar RP for the past six years. Mostly it came from not knowing a doohickey about Final Fantasy anything, since I've never played a single game of the franchise. The other was that I didn't care for the High Fantasy vibe I got from it; my writing style is usually a mix of serious and humor, and I have to have that humor part. My characters also tend to not be 'heroes' but regular people trying to just survive, or pissbaby fingerwigglers with too much power in their hands when they've got the emotional maturity of a turnip.
BUT--I tried this game out last month on a trial with a friend, found I liked the game a LOT with the jobs and stuff, and then when I came to Mateus recently I've found everyone to be very nice and the RP to be booming--so here I am! Scared, wide-eyed, and nervous in a new game to RP in when I've never done so before, but willing to learn lore and meet people!
My times of activity are from 3 pm to 2 am EST, for the time being, and I'm usually free any day of the week except the occasional Monday-Thurs. I'm looking for character contacts outside of 'romantic' or ERP--flirting, hate-flirting, mud-wrestling, business, rivals, friends, comrades, it doesn't matter! As long as you don't mind my lack of being able to be completely serious in RP...because I really do like to laugh, and sneak in a couple of wall-eyed looks or clumsy face plants between serious paragraphs.
My characters are Hector Faust (Highlander grump paladin guard to a mage), S'lohi Tia (Miqo'te Bard and Mage, flirtatious lecherous bastard with a talented knack for music), and Aya Bakuto (A short white-horned Au Ra who's been ousted from her home and fled to Eorzea--she likes to fight and be a mischevious imp).
ovo/ Happy to be here so far! Thanks to everyone who's given me 'hullos' and welcomed me warmly so far.
