    Welcome, welcome, welcome to Umbra’s Character Marketplace. The Marketplace is a space dedicated to advertising your characters to the Umbra Community. While Request Threads are more geared toward advertising a writer’s skills or their collection of plots, the Marketplace is intended for those who love writing with a specific original character or characters, but may not have a set plot in mind for them.

    So, how does it work?
    All members are allowed one (1) thread per character. This is to help accommodate those writers who have a vast collection of usable characters for various romantic pairings and genres. You are welcome to advertise your character however you choose with as much or as little detail as you like, including but not limited to using thread prefixes, posting basic character details, and what kinds of stories you are/aren’t willing to write with them.

    Below is an example of a potential character advertisement using one of my own characters (sorry, not available!). Feel free to use this layout as inspiration for your own ad.

    [​IMG]Name: Rémy Boucher
    Age: 29
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Bisexual (will write MxM or MxF stories with this character)
    Genres: Supernatural, Horror, Romance

    Backstory: Rémy is a professional monster hunter in present day New Orleans. The youngest of eight children, Rémy grew up to be a devilishly charming Southern Gentleman with silky smooth accent and a wit fiery enough to melt even the iciest of shoulders. Cavalier with his own safety--often called "reckless" by his siblings--Rémy finds endless joy hunting down the most dangerous ghosts, ghouls, and rougaroux.

    Kinks: Rémy is a submissive top. He lives to please, and would pair well with a dominant personality who can keep him in his place. Enjoys various elements of BDSM, rough sex, edging, breath play, and bossy bottoms with a ton of opinions.

    Plots/Stories: Will only write supernatural stories that focus on his career in Louisiana. Can pair with a human, parahuman, or otherwise supernatural humanoid. Any story with Rémy will require heavy levels of smut as Rémy is a sexual character. Prefers older men/women.

    In Conclusion
    As you can see, this is a pretty simple ad! You can go as crazy as you like to sell up your character, or keep it short and sweet. Have fun with it!
