Hey - I see you've been looking for tips on how to find a permanent pairing so I thought I'd give a little bit of advice.

First off, don't be afraid to poke people on the warden/inmate pairing post if you think it might be an interesting combo! I've had pairings that resulted from our characters clicking in threads. I've also had spontaneous pairings that have worked just as well. You don't always need to wait for a click, and the worst someone'll say if you reach out to them is no thank you.

Second, I have enjoyed the threads we've had together with our characters. I think all of your characters are engaging and fun. However, I'd be hesitant to pair with you on a permanent basis because quite frequently our threads take a very long time to get anywhere. Going a week or more between tags sometimes is, unfortunately, a bit of a turnoff for me, as someone who prefers faster play. I'm not trying to police your free time or anything like that, but I've seen you worry on plurk that you're falling behind a few times, and I know that the tags in our threads have been a bit spotty to the point where I kind of assume they were dropped. I know that feeling and it's not fun. If you're feeling swamped on a regular basis, you might want to try cutting down to 1-2 characters at a time or taking on less threads/plots.

But do note that there are plenty of people here who tag at a more relaxed pace, too! You might want to try reaching out to them - making sure playstyles mesh is honestly more important to me than trying to find the perfect character fit.
