Hi there friends! My online alias is Elliara, but my name in the real world is Ann. You can call me whatever you are most comfortable with. I am a seventeen year-old high school student (senior year, woohoo!) who prides herself on taking part in almost every activity time allows. I play soccer and run cross country and track, act as senior class president, and work at my local hospital with my nursing assistant certification. There are a couple more extra-curriculars I could throw in there but just listing them makes me tired.
Even in my earliest memories, I know that I was in love with writing. As a child, I would scribble down ideas for short stories on anything, including (but not limited to) napkins, paper plates, and my arm. I was never the best at going through with these stories. I remember the day that I discovered online roleplaying. It was 2015, and I was a lonely eighth grader who was too much of a snitch to have any real friends. I had discovered the virtual world IMVU (is it even running anymore?) a couple of months beforehand and was absolutely obsessed with it. It had become an escape from my own life. My only issue was the horn dogs who would hog the chatrooms, and the fact that nobody seemed to want to create an actual story.
I was exploring the website when I found their forums, and I realized that there was an entire genre labeled "roleplaying". After a few hours of exploring, I knew that I was hooked. Online roleplay combined some of my favorite things in life- writing, interacting with others, and hiding my true identity. That last point was an actual issue with my original entrance into the RP world. I would pretend to be much older than I actually was, and that got me into some trouble when older writers would put together my lack of grammar and maturity.
Over the years, I have become more comfortable with myself and my skills, and I believe that I am much easier to get along with now :). I discovered roleplay gateway recently, after having a (roughly) year-long hiatus from writing and roleplay, so please forgive me if I seem a bit rusty. I am looking forward to making new friendships and writing some kickass stories! You will find me in more realistic stories, especially those that include characters who I am able to relate to personally (young adults, high schoolers, etc) but I am not opposed to trying out some fantasy or sci fi! Please feel free to DM me, or contact me on my discord at the same username. I'm looking forward to being on this site :)

I'm also coming off of a long hiatus from roleplay.

That saying, we all have made mistakes during our RP career (I like to tell people I am in my 20's because I am actually old, shh). Anyhow, good to have you around, and I hope you find an RP to get cozy in.

Thank you so much for the warm welcomes! Old refers to anyone older than I was at the time, so the bar is low! :)
