    Flip the script

    Ello there >:3 To all of you out there, call me Imp.

    
I’m a woman, I’m in my twenties and I have a penchant for roleplaying; writing and art. The Holy Trinity if you will. I am a lover of the aesthetic and a proud nerd. One of my main passions being video-games, illustrations, comics, live-action films, series and anime/cartoon shows; everything that shaped me during my years of growing up.

    
It’s been a while since I’ve posted my first ever ad on any website, and I was positively surprised by the amount of people that have reached out to me.

    I’ve been roleplaying for a few years now and gradually gathered a good amount of experience throughout the years, but it’s always fun to meet and learn something new. I have a few original ideas that I’m very interested in trying out. Concepts will be posted down below.

    

Pseudonym: Imp



    Age: 28 years

    

Experience: 12 years



    Preferences: 1:1 Roleplaying

    

Partner: My partner should be at least 20+ or up. I only accept mature partners.  

    Content: Very NSFW (considering it will involve mature topics, violence, fantasy, etc) Timezone: Important to note! I am from Europe, so there might be a sliver of a chance that my timezone could differ from yours.

    EMAIL: impish.and.angelic@gmail.com

    I am very spontaneous, so I can always adjust to a new setting, depending on how good and compelling the concept is.

Inspirations come from various sources and origins, be it a fandom (an already existing universe) or an original storyline. 


    Please read through these paragraphs carefully before you decide to contact me! It’s important to avoid any misunderstanding later! And I would less likely respond to a message with the title ‘Hey, wanna rp?’, or very vague messages that has little to no substance.

    



°°°·.°·..·°¯°·._.· ☥ ·._.·°¯°·.·° .·°°° °°°·.°·..·°¯°·._.· ☥ ·._.·°¯°·.·° .·°°°



    This is a lookout for adult roleplayers who have no issue with NSFW themes and are experienced with darker, more mature plots. 

With that being said, I have very detailed and elaborately written rules and guidelines that convey who I am as a writer, what the partnership entails and what I am looking for specifically. To give you a better understanding of what I’m all about, I have linked a google docs for you to read.:

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_-wtpMNjBzWRWwEEW3ewwksbY_Q1qrMm_fGIUKd64Dk/edit?usp=sharing °°°·.°·..·°¯°·._.· ☥ ·._.·°¯°·.·° .·°°° °°°·.°·..·°¯°·._.· ☥ ·._.·°¯°·.·° .·°°°

    Now to the important bits! 

I’ve been inspired lately… by gritty takes on the superhero genre (cue Invincible or The Boys for example); and sinister worlds revolving around dark medieval fantasy with a more grounded take on characters.

    
I have two specific plot ideas that I am craving to do, but I am also open and willing to your ideas, additions and personal spin on the story. So if my ideas do not fully suit your tastes, or if you feel the need to add something to make it better, I am always open and willing to plot with you! 
So don’t be shy on letting me know your thoughts, feelings and opinions. We can also make things up as we go... I am more of a go with the flow kind of gal. So nothing here is set in stone.

    Idea 1 
A hero not so super: Capulet City; a gargantuan metropolis known for its towering edifices and world-leading economical achievements. Gleaming in glitz and glamour, it was a city forged by gods. To make it in the industry, be it business, acting, art, or music; Capulet was the place to be. But it soon turned into a cesspool of heavy crime and injustice. With each passing year, evil spiked and there was no end in sight.

    That was, until the beginning of the 70s, the world’s first superhero descended from another world. His name was “The Sentinel”. Like a whirlwind, he purged criminals from the streets, saved the innocent from certain death, and re-inspired the people to be better again.

    After things were kicked into motion, more and more superpowered people and entities made their presence known throughout the world. Some good, some self-serving… and others, ruled by chaos and destruction. The world became a battlefield for gods and monsters, leaving many to worship or fear their superpowered equals. Following the Sentinel’s footsteps, many strived to become superheroes in their own right. But only the Earth’s mightiest were able to become the greatest of them all. Meanwhile, some began questioning the narrative… if things were really what they seemed. Just as the first superhuman made himself public, others followed suit.

    Coincidence?

    Maybe.

    The cases of superheroes being reckless, accidentally killing or destroying other’s livelihoods, even abusing their powers for their nefarious purposes enhanced an ever-present problem. Though not many lived long enough, to tell the truth. Some disappeared off the records entirely; whilst others fell victim to bribery.

    Those who have vanished, however, had one thing in common. They knew about an island… an island called “Isla del Sol”.

    Idea 2 Sworn through swords: In a faraway land where kingdoms, war, greed ruled, we tell several different stories within that world. Many struggle to live and see another day, whilst others are born into lavish, luxurious lives only very few catch a glimpse of. The continent of Mundus is versatile, governed by nine kingdoms that are mostly united through unstable alliances but would often battle for territory, resources, and riches. It was a brutal world. In only recent years, tensions began to rise between the several kingdoms, as armies and knights became the pawns of wealthy kings and queens. As they drenched themselves in blood and misery, they failed to notice another threat that was on the rise. Magic; a force of both godly and demonic origin. Only a few humans were born with a sensitivity to magic, giving them all sorts of abilities that made the general public fear and hunt them down. Throughout history, magic has been disregarded as a myth. But as days grow darker, magic becomes stronger once more, reclaiming its hold over the world.   Those with magic in their blood, also known as faeys, have been driven to the edge of near extinction, seeking a reclusive refuge in their fortresses, studying the occult and arcane in secret. Thousands of years ago, Faeys learned that with the help of a peculiar mineral, a blackened stone that was carved with various unknown engravings, could give them the ability to transcend their humanity; doubling their powers by a tenfold and turning immortal. But at a price. Apostles, as they are called, are described as terrifying monsters, demons, or creatures of the dark world who were able to assume the original human form, but hold powers beyond imagination, far more than that of a normal faey. That knowledge has been long lost since then when magic had faded from the world. That was… until now.

    So that's everything from my side. I hope it sparked some sort of interest. And if you are curious, feel free to message me! :) Best regards, Imp

    𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐢𝐚 𝐂𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐭 — 𝐥𝐢𝐭/𝐚𝐝𝐯+ 𝐫𝐞𝐠𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐲 𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐧 

    There is nothing like marriage season in London. Hope and hormones torment the affluent and stress the impoverished — but not a soul can escape its cruel hostage. After many years of watching the political games, the Nightingales are joining the season with their debutante of an offspring. Stakes are high as they reveal the young woman carries vampiric blood, and the ability to grant her spouse and family an affluent, prolonged life. However, do the Nightingales truly hold as much power as they think? Only you, and your story, can decide.

    𝐑𝐨𝐲𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐲𝐜𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐱 𝐁𝐫𝐢𝐝𝐠𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐨𝐧 𝐱 𝐆𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐜 𝐋𝐢𝐭 

    Enjoy the romance of the marriage season in Bridgerton blended with overtures of supernatural elements and darker themes, all wrapped up with an indulgent Regency backdrop.

    Pitsawat / Blood and Treasures. 9

    Story: 8

    Acting: 10

    Chemistry: 10

    This is a really really well done horror/fantasy/romance/sort of historical drama. It really pulls you in and you don’t realize you binge the whole night through. Yeah it can get that addicting. I’ll admit some of the plot lines don’t quite follow through, but between the the wonderful scenery and chemistry of the main leads you don’t notice it at all. Also the last few episodes does king of give you a bit of a 🤬

    lord voldemort is dead, and his death eaters are dismantled. but like a forest after a fire, their destruction led to the blooming of the orchid club. second sons & sisters. dutiful wives & mothers. these few bloomed in the DE’s absence and successfully rescued their loved ones from Azkaban. But now, the DEs are reuniting. some of them want to bring the orchid club members into their fold. others would prefer them to fall back to supporting roles. but with lord voldemort still gone, which group will continue to flourish?

    Moriarty The Patriot 2nd Season Episode 13 Review

    Moriarty The Patriot 2nd Season Episode 13 Review - The plot thickens and then goes boom?

    Albert’s idea of fun may not be the same as those around him. Irene continues to be in hot-water in this episode of Moriarty the Patriot. However, the episode focuses more on Albert Moriarty as he makes contact with Irene rather than on Irene herself. It is a definite change in tone from the more amusing return episode we had last week where a lot of the screen time was eaten with shenanigans…

    JIHAD PANGERAN TRUNAJAYA DI BULAN RAMADHAN

    Pasa 1601 / Ramadhan 1089 H / Oktober - November 1678

    oleh: Muhammad Rizki Taufan

    Operasi militer Kediri telah berlangsung sebagai penentu titik akhir kemenangan perang. Pasukan gabungan Mataram - VOC mulai bergerak menuju benteng pertahanan Pangeran Trunajaya di Kediri, dan memecahnya dengan empat gelombang arah. Empat gelombang tersebut ialah:

    - Gelombang arah pertama, dipimpin langsung oleh Susuhunan Amangkurat II bersama Antonio Hurdt, melalui jalur Jepara - Kali Bengawan Solo - Kediri

    - Gelombang arah kedua, dipimpin oleh Tack, melalui jalur Semarang - Kali Bengawan Solo - Kediri

    - Gelombang arah ketiga, dipimpin oleh Van Renesse dan Mulder's, melalui jalur Rembang - Pati - Jipang - Kediri

    - Gelombang arah keempat, dipimpin oleh Bastinck, melalui jalur Surabaya - Kediri

    Di sisi Kali Bengawan Solo, pasukan dari gelombang arah pertama dan kedua bertemu, sedangkan pasukan gelombang arah ketiga dan keempat langsung melalui jalurnya sendiri menuju Kediri. Ada pun siasat pemecahan gelombang pasukan ini ialah inisiatif dari Susuhunan Amangkurat II. Awalnya, siasat ini diragukan oleh pihak VOC, terlebih karena mereka belum punya pengalaman lebih untuk menyusuri kawasan pedalaman Tanah Jawa. Namun perlahan tapi pasti, siasat ini memang menguntungkan pihaknya, sesuai dengan tujuan Susuhunan Amangkurat II, yakni menarik simpati warga sekitar di jalur yang dilalui tersebut.

    Singkat cerita, pasukan gelombang arah pertama dan kedua telah sampai di tepi barat Sungai Brantas menjelang bulan Ramadhan, yakni pada 13 Oktober 1678 (berdasarkan konversi kalender Masehi - Hijriyah, 1 Ramadhan 1089 H jatuh pada tanggal 17 Oktober 1678). Sisi ini adalah pintu masuk menuju Kediri dari arah utara, namun pasukan mereka sempat mengalami kesulitan untuk menyeberangi sungai ini karena luapan banjir. Kedatangan pasukan musuh telah diketahui oleh pihak Pangeran Trunajaya, maka diutuslah Raden Suradipa untuk memertahankan Kali Brantas. Perkubuan Pasukan Trunajaya telah didirikan di sisi timur Kali Brantas, dan pada malam hari tanggal 21 Oktober 1678, atau tepatnya pada malam puasa ke-6, Ramadhan 1089 H, Pasukan Raden Suradipa menggempur posisi pasukan VOC di tepi Kali Brantas. Serangan ini berhasil membakar beberapa perkemahan pasukan musuh, namun perlawanan sengit telah memaksa pasukan Raden Suradipa untuk mundur. Ia sendiri terluka parah karena pertempuran pembuka ini.

    Selama beberapa hari, hampir tidak ada pergerakan dari pasukan gelombang arah pertama dan kedua. Mereka masih terhadang oleh luapan Kali Brantas dan kubu pertahanan Pangeran Trunajaya di sisi sungai itu. Pada 17 dan 18 Ramadhan, kubu Pangeran Trunajaya mulai menabuh gamelan untuk menciutkan mental lawan. Kemudian pada 18 Ramadhan, pasukan musuh dari gelombang arah keempat telah tiba di Kali Brantas, dan segera bergabung dengan pasukan yang telah berkubu di sana sebelumnya. Kedatangan pasukan ini dijawab oleh pihak Pangeran Trunajaya dengan serangan yang memorak-porandakan perbekalan lawan pada dan menewaskan beberapa lawan pada tanggal 21 Ramadhan. Serangan itu masih berlangsung hingga keesokan harinya, 22 Ramadhan, ketika pasukan lawan berupaya menyeberangi Sungai Brantas dengan perahu-perahu mereka. Tentunya hal ini menjadi target empuk bombardir dari pihak Pangeran Trunajaya. Perahu-perahu tersebut tenggelam, mereka pun gagal menyeberangi sungai.

    Ketika malam takbiran berlangsung, Kali Brantas yang meluap itu mulai surut. Orang-orang Jawa percaya bahwa hal ini masih berkaitan dengan kesaktian Susuhunan Amangkurat II. Pasukan lawan mulai bergerak untuk menyeberangi sungai pada 1 Syawal, tentunya dijawab dengan tembakan-tembakan meriam oleh kubu Pangeran Trunajaya. Namun pasukan musuh berhasil menyeberangi sungai dan menyerang pertahanan Pasukan Trunajaya di tepi sungai itu, sehingga memaksanya mundur ke benteng utama. Setelah konsolidasi yang cukup panjang, maka pasukan musuh telah siap untuk melancarkan serangan utama, yakni merebut benteng pertahanan utama Pangeran Trunajaya di Kota Kediri.

    Pasukan dari empat gelombang telah bersatu padu di luar benteng pertahanan Pangeran Trunajaya. Disebutkan benteng ini dipertahankan dengan tembok setinggi 6 meter dan tebal 2 meter, serta dikelilingi 43 baterai artileri. Susuhunan Amangkurat II segera dikawal menuju lokasi teraman, dan pasukan gabungan Mataram - VOC memulai pertempuran dahsyat di babak ini. Pertempuran berlangsung selama 3 hari, yakni pada 10 hingga 12 Syawal 1089 H. Pertempuran titik demi titik telah mengantarkan musuh ke ambang kemenangan. Keadaan semakin menyulitkan kubu Pangeran Trunajaya, sehingga di hari terakhir pertempuran itu mereka harus menarik diri dari Kediri. Pasukan lawan pun berhasil menduduki dan menjarah kota, dan Benteng Kediri pun dirobohkan. Tack juga menemukan sebuah mahkota emas yang diduga milik Majapahit, yang di kemudian hari berani ia jual pada Susuhunan Amangkurat II.

    Spirit Ramadhan beberapa ratus tahun silam, telah mengilhami kita semua sebagai umat Islam di masa kini. Jihad yang begitu dahsyat sempat tercatat dengan pena bertintakan darah di dalam sanubari sejarah Nusantara. Episode ini telah menjadi bukti nyata perjuangan seorang putera bangsa. Menjawab tantangan yang sedemikian rumit untuk keberlangsungan kehidupan bangsa lintas generasi. Kisah ini telah terpatri abadi, insyaAllaah Surga Allaah telah disiapkan untuk para syuhada yang ikhlas ini. Khususan Raden Nila Prawata / Pangeran Trunajaya / Panembahan Maduretna dan ruh para syuhada, lahumul Faatihah 🤲🏻
