so many things; space/science-fiction, fantasy, horror, video-game based, assassins... the list goes on.

I tied in Amaranthine and always wondered if I might truly be more of a phoenix birb, so I hope y'all don't mind me throwing in my own responses!

How long have you been a member of AS?
Six years this month apparently!
Have you participated in any of the events here?
I did do a few of the first 100 DoS prompts and I've always meant to do more! Life and doing admin stuff always suck up my time.
Have you participated in the Afflatus before?
As a regular member, I've participated mainly just by submitting a few prompt ideas, anonymous compliments, and suggesting featured writing. As staff, I help put it together every month - namely the updates, answering the Dear Stags, and activities.
How many years have you been roleplaying for?
Since about 2002ish. I'm old.
How did you hear about AS?
A roleplay partner from CS suggested it since we wanted our characters to speak freely and do more than a chaste kiss lol.
Did you come here with friends, or did you venture here alone?
The one roleplay partner! I didn't even really seek out additional roleplays here for a while. #newkid
What is your favorite character that you’ve written so far? (original or canon)
Probably Kaeden, my Potterverse Healer, Cadence, my star child turned teen mom, Colerain, my Star Wars oc, Emerson my eccentric thief with his pet ferret, Kiron, my loosely Potterverse dragon tamer, and Julien, my... I guess Hit Wizard, but it was something a little different that I can't remember.
What is a roleplay you’re curious to try but never have?
I only ever barely tried Star Wars and since I ADORE Star Wars, I always regretted not pursuing that more. Also Middle Earth.

How long have you been a member of AS?
I joined in August 2013 so six years.

Have you participated in any of the events here?
Not that I can recall, I've been on a hiatus recently and I think I only got as fa as a couple of prompts in 100 days of summer before I left.

Have you participated in the Afflatus before?
Nope.

How many years have you been roleplaying for?
Oh christ. No clue. I'd guess about eight years give or take?

How did you hear about AS?
I was originally a chicken smoothie role player and I think I was there when it was first asked if anyone would be interested in advanced scribes.

Did you come here with friends, ir did you venture here alone?
I came here with three friends, all of which I either still role play with regularly (relatively across the years) or are still in contact with. But I've made loads more friends on here <3

What is your favorite character that you’ve written so far? (original or canon)
Hmm... Probably Alessia. She was a gang leader that made a poor deal with Jazzyleia's character Xavier and so ended up in a contracted relationship. Of course there is a happy ending though, just with a couple of gunfights and drama thrown in!

What is a roleplay you’re curious to try but never have?
Currently having that dilemma. I want to try one based loosely on the Assassin's Creed universe, more for the old settings rather than a story. Still umming and erring though if I have the time when I go back to university to do it!

Once I did the 100 days of summer, but never made it the whole 100

How many years have you been roleplaying for?
too many
How did you hear about AS?
Someone on Chickensmoothie I think
Did you come here with friends, or did you venture here alone?
Friends? Those are real?
What is your favorite character that you’ve written so far? (original or canon)
At the moment, Magnus who is my little musically-gifted Scottish character and my newest one, Desmond, who is the world's purest rich boy.
What is a roleplay you’re curious to try but never have?
Literally anything

Hi Amaranthine!

Happy first of October! I've put together some spoopy questions on the questionnaire thread for the month of Halloween!

Amaranthine Questionnaire Thread!

And in case you wanted to answer last month's questions, they are all there on the second page of the thread, just underneath the October questions!

Further, if there are any suggestions you have for House activities, please PM me (Cas), I'd love to hear from you guys, whether it be suggestions, feedback on how you'd like Ama to be run, anything!

Once again, happy October!

My answers for this are going to suck but hey I tried.

How long have you been a member of AS?
Looks like four and a half years.
Have you participated in any of the events here?
A little, a long time ago.
Have you participated in the Afflatus before?
I submitted a couple things. Hope to more.
How many years have you been roleplaying for?
Uhhhhhh lost count. Many.
How did you hear about AS?
A roleplay partner.
Did you come here with friends, ir did you venture here alone?
With a partner, but haven’t talked to them in a long time and idk if they roleplay anymore. -shrug-
What is your favorite character that you’ve written so far? (original or canon)
Originals only. I guess Potterverse mainly? Way rusty; not sure who I’d pick.
What is a roleplay you’re curious to try but never have?
Huh that’s a good one. Maybe more sci fi stuff?


Is anyone going to do the art event? I’m debating whether to expose my terrible drawing skills I haven’t practiced since I was a kid..

Hi birbs!

This is quick info post to say that for the moment, I'll be stepping in as temporary Keeper for the Amaranthine house!

As part of this, I'll shortly be sending out PMs to all members of Amaranthine in order to guage who is still active, and who still wants to be part of Ama! More details for that will be in the PM!

Also, if anyone can, I'd like you guys to answer this question: What do you want to see in Amaranthine? What do you guys want from the house moving forward? In a similar vein to the poll at the top of the thread, I want to see what you guys want in Ama so that we can boost activity :)

Further, if you want to ask me any questions on anything else, my mailbox is always open! Send me PMs anytime!

Awesome, that's all from me!

More activity. Lol.

Realistically... questionnaires are fun. Or sharing tips and resources for getting back into roleplaying, trying out new kinds of characters, new fandoms, etc. Sharing book recommendations for great new fandoms people may not know about, or even just books that have great writing style or could give awesome inspiration.

Or like a scavenger hunt, like 'find a roleplay with a werewolf' or 'find a roleplay where one of the main characters is an only child'.

Or some sort of challenge or motivation to participate in the Afflatus because hot damn the house numbers are so depressing. I want to try out the afflatus but I don't want to do it alone..
