the s c a r s meme

Most everyone has some sort of scars. Some are from happy accidents. Some are from events you'd rather not speak about. But sometimes, two people can share a moment over scars: Be it friendly, romantic, or with a complete stranger. These are those moments.

01. new: the scar is fairly new. maybe you still need to do something to make sure it heals more properly. maybe you're just worried about the new scar that's appeared on someone you care about.
02. discovery: you've just had someone find out about your scars, or you've just accidentally learned that the other person has scars. do you say something, or let the moment pass uncommented on?
03. shame: maybe you're ashamed of your scars. maybe you want someone else to know that there's no need to hide their scars around you.
04. show: you're proud of your scars, or at least you don't see a reason to keep them covered-- never have, or not anymore. or maybe someone is showing you their scars for the first time.
05. story: it's time to talk about the story behind your scars. or, perhaps, it's time to listen to someone tell you about how they came about their scars.
06. touch: maybe you want someone to touch your scars so you can remind yourself you're still here. maybe you want to touch their scars because you want to show them you don't mind them.
07. attraction: you've heard that people like someone with scars, so you're flaunting them, or you're the person very attracted to someone with scars. 
08. kiss: letting this person kiss your scars may be a moment of extreme vulnerability, or just something you like. kissing someone else's scars may be just what you need to do to show someone how much you care. 
09. soulmate: you live in a world where your soulmates scars appear on your own skin. what's that like?
10. other: wildcard option.

Post with your character's name and canon, and maybe a list of some of their scars and if you're interested in gen/shipping/etc. Reply to other people's comments by picking RNG for an option, or pick your own! 

A mash up of several other scar memes. Warning: May have reference to abuse, torture, violence, self-harm, or similar.

the fish out of water shipping meme

The main conceit of shipping memes, it seems, is that both characters exist in the same universe. But what about something that tosses that out the window for a minute, and lets you play with the implications of "crossover?" Here, you can play with someone from a different canon (or AU or radically different canonpoint) and enjoy shipping that's truly out of this world.

It can be hard enough being ejected from your own home - imagine being plucked away from your home world! This could be because of your own doing (say, you were banished for being too cocky), you were too evil or too ambitious to stay, or even due to an accident. Those temporal shifts can be a little much. Whether by design or by chaos, however, you end up in the same place...or, rather, a different place. Theoretically, this world could be very much like your own, with only a few minor changes, like a purple sky instead of a blue one or lion-demons instead of tiger-vampires. On the other hand, it could be completely different, anywhere from more technologically advanced or less so or even filled to the brim with bizarre creatures. They still use cars? What are those infernal beeping devices? Why does no one have feathers or gills? Needless to say, this could be overwhelming if you are possibly powerless and definitely alone.

But you're not alone. Someone, a native of this world, has ended up tangled into this whole affair with you, whether they want it or not. You can't turn that down. They're your only ally, your only anchor in this brand new world. Maybe, just maybe, they can show you a thing or two to help you back up on your feet. Or, best case scenario, back to your home! When you're out of the frying pan and into the fire, though, nothing is cut and dry. Everything about this world may not be so horrible - it may be fun, even - and this person you've ended up with, oh, they could be worse. In fact, you may be beginning to feel at home with them.

Remember. This is not your real home. You want to go back, don't you?

And what about the other party? Of course, you may be less than thrilled that you now are playing tour guide to what seems like a crazy person. Perhaps this was out of the kindness of your heart or you may be forced to play babysitter, but it all leads to you keeping an eye out on them. They have to be lying about all this! Sure, they may talk strange, unconsciously insult you, and act like the simplest things confuse them; that has to be an act!

...still, act or not, you're starting to see that there's more to them than their goofy ways and there's more to your feelings toward them than you thought.

There's always been tension between the two of you, a will-they-won't they kind of vibe. Perhaps you're even romantically involved, if that's your way. But for some reason, you haven't taken the next step yet.

Now, though, you're finally ready to be sexually intimate.

How to Play:
★ Comment with your character and preferences.
★ Comment to others.
★ Play out the scene.

First Time: This is your first time having sex, so it was something to approach with caution.
Unsure: You're uncertain of your skill or prowess or even how to go about this.
Uncorrupted: One of you is more innocent, younger, more inexperienced, and the other doesn't want to take that away.
Differences: The two of you are different enough - perhaps even different species - that intimacy may be an issue, but you're ready to attack it head on.
Taken: You aren't "together," and one of you is involved with someone else. This is the big decision to do an act that may be viewed as heinous.
Forbidden: There's been no sexual contact because it's utterly forbidden, be it incest, class difference, enemies, etc.
Realization: Maybe you'd been friends, but this is the first time you've really seen them in that light.
Otherwise Distracted: Whether it be a job, a holy mission, or anything else along those lines, you've just been too busy to be with someone like that because it would take your mind away from what you have to do.
Finally Free: Before, you just didn't have the chance. Now you do.
Only Time: You were unsure before, but now, it looks like you'll only have this once chance to be together.
A Long Time: You've been separated and it happened before you could get to the good parts. You want to pick up where you left off.
Desperate: You've wanted them for so long...God, this feels so good, you never want it to stop.
Romantic: You want it to be perfect.
Waiting Until Marriage: Doing things all proper-like.

Sure we've got your fun interplanetary romps, your space spaghetti westerns, your xenoromance. This is none of those things. This is you getting lost in the depths of space. This is you being stuck in a silent hulking dead ship with no idea where to turn. This is you hiding in the dark and hoping the creature doesn't see you. This is you, surviving some kind of horrors. Or not. Do your best.

The Single Parent Meme

Congratulations, you are now a proud parent. Whether they're driving you crazy, getting in the way of love or filling your whole world, you certainly can't ignore them.

Pick yourself a scenario and get ready for the pitter patter of tiny feet.

- Post your character, canon and preferencees
- Choose a role
- Repliers pick from the below options
- ????
- Profit

1. Parent and child - One of you is the parent and the other is their blessed offspring (or holy terror).
2. Parent and Parent - Commiserating together on the woes of parenthood
3. Parent and Other (ir)Responsible Adult - Whether they're your kid's school teacher or the new boy/girlfriend about to meet the sprog, your kid is influencing this conversation.

And the scenarios to choose from...

Parent and Child

1. Let's just get through today - it's a special occasion! Whether it's a birthday, Christmas or some other celebration, it's a big day and there's a lot going on. Control the sugar rush and avoid tears before bedtime, and you might just survive it.
2. What did you do!? - The dreaded call from the school has come, and now you've got to march down there and find out what your wayward child is up to today
3. Sick Day - Nobody's going anywhere today, call into work and notify the school, because your child is ILL.
4. Big shoes to fill - This is not your child. They're your little brother, your niece, your best friend's son, their real parents are gone and you're the only one who can step in.
5. Other - Got another idea? Fill your boots! No, not with that, oh god, who's going to clean this up?

Parent and Parent

1. Playdate - Oh my gosh you'll love my friend, he has a kid too! It's a blind date based solely on being parents, and your kids are there as well. Oh this should be fun.
2. Field Trip - You're both chaperoning for the school field trip, I hope you get on well together because that's one long bus journey.
3. Support Group - It's a lonely, difficult road, so it's nice to have somebody to talk to that understands that your sweet, adorable child gets less sweet and adorable after the fourth screaming fit.
4. Your child did WHAT? - You're both called in to the office because your kids have been fighting. Or caught making out. Or otherwise getting in trouble. Who gets the blame here?
5. Other - Go nuts. Literally, kids are hard.

Parent and other adult

1. Parent/Teacher Conference - Since he started school your child can't stop talking about their amazing/terrible teacher, and now you get to find out for yourself! (Oh no he's hot is optional)
2. Something you should know - You've been on a few dates and things are going well, it's about time to drop the child bomb before things get too serious.
3. Lost and found - Your child has run away/gotten lost, but there's a kind stranger depositing them back in your waiting arms, how do you ever repay them?
4. Over the fence - Your child has lost something in the next door neighbour's garden and they're too scared to go ask for it back themselves, you're up.
5. Other - A shocking twist in the classic options, choose your own!

the affectionate physical contact meme


you love spending time with your significant other. but sometimes, just "spending time" with him/her isn't enough. you need to have your hands on each other every now and then.

➝ post your character below, with your character's name and series in the subject.

➝ tag other people, using an rng with range 1-8 to roll a scenario.

➝ roll as many times as you want, play out whatever you want!

one; hugging.
 you just want to give your loved one a warm embrace. be it out of happiness, to comfort them while they're down, or just to give them something warm to latch onto, you just want to wrap your arms around them.

two; kissing.
 whether it's a peck on the cheek or a deep kiss, a kiss good-bye or a romantic kiss, you find yourself compelled to kiss the other person! be as tender or as passionate as you so choose.

three; holding hands.
 it's a simple gesture, really -- to reach out and take someone's hand. but that one simple gesture can convey any number of sentiments. what the sentiment is, is up to you, but you find yourself reaching out to take your significant other's hand.

four; carrying.
 is your loved one hurt and needs a lift? do they want a piggyback ride? or do you just want to spare them the effort of walking? whatever the reason, you're now itching to pick up your partner and carry them to their destination.

five; i love you.
 you've said it before or maybe you haven't but now you have to say it again or for the first time.

six; dancing.
 kick up the music, because it's time to dance! but no lone dancing allowed -- you need to have a partner! you can do whatever dance strikes your fancy. personally, i recommend the slow dance, but you can do whatever you want!

seven; massaging.
 did your significant other have a rough day? did they get hurt? or do you just feel like doing something really nice for them? whatever it is, you're giving them a nice massage now. they'll feel wonderful in no time!

eight; flirting.
 the easiest way to break the ice or maybe you're just an overly flirty person.

nine; cuddling.
 sometimes there's just no better feeling than curling up next to each other on a warm sofa. hold each other, lie next to each other, fall asleep on each other -- it's all good here.

ten; wild card!
 reroll, pick an option, or come up with something else!

twitterpated: the meme

twitterpated: adj. Smitten or love-struck; romantically infatuated.

Nearly everybody gets twitterpated in the springtime. For example: you're walking along, minding your own business. You're looking neither to the left, nor to the right, when all of a sudden, you run smack into a pretty face. Woo-woo! You begin to get weak in the knees. Your head's in a whirl. And then you feel light as a feather; and before you know it, you're walking on air. And then you know what? You're knocked for a loop, and you completely lose your head!

  • Comment with your character, preferences, and the like.
  • Others will reply.
  • Congratulations, your character is flat-out twitterpated by theirs!

([personal profile] vivalaopenpost posting in [community profile] bakerstreet May. 24th, 2017 05:26 pm)

Up until now, there's definitely been some tension between you two. Whether it's more romantic or flatly sexual is, understandably, dependent on the personalities involved, but the fact remains that you both have been dancing around the issue for whatever reason. Why do why say "up until now?" Well, it's simple. Somehow, either through accident or otherwise, you've end up in what can only be considered a compromising position: you're in the other's lap, you're on top of them, chest to chest, almost kissing, so on and so forth. This leads to the ultimate snap in your tension - you just can't hold it in any longer, even if you try to get out of this situation unscathed.

The direction you move in, again, depends on the people involved, so things could take a turn for the awkward, the cute, the romantic, the desperate, or even the steamy. What's for certain is that whatever's between you may never be the same...unless you guys, in typical will they/won't they fashion, can repress and pretend nothing ever happened.

  • Reply with your character's information and your preference.
  • If you're playing a young or teenaged character or simply don't like overly explicit themes, feel free to clarify what you'd be comfortable with.
  • Reply to others!

  • accidental: It was a trip, an not so calculated move, or another mistake that lead you here.
  • on purpose: You were getting closer and enjoying each others' company, planning a move...but you didn't mean to get this close right off. Or maybe you did

  • awkward: UH UH SORRY FOR LANDING ON YOUR. UHM. YOU KNOW. But moving makes it worse, or you could be in a state of undress.
  • cute: Ah, just kiss them already! Or at least look into each others' eyes and have a moment.
  • romantic: A sweet, long kiss and perhaps some long-held confessions are in order.
  • confessions: Actually, speaking of confessions, they might just slip out without anything sweet...oooor your body reacting to this new position may be all the proof the other person needs to know something's up.
  • desperate: Oh, fuck it. You might never have this chance again and you've been wanting them so badly, you may as well snog at least, no matter what.
  • steamy: The smut option!

The Historical Romance (AU) Meme

(also including high fantasy, steampunk, and sci-fi because why not)

There's nothing quite like a good historical setting to take a tale of sordid romance to the next level. Perhaps it's the setting that seems so separate from our own time, thus making the whole thing feel more exotic or epic. Besides, the codes of attitude! The costumes! The traditions! The disease and early death!

Uhhh, did I mention the costumes?

  • This is a meme for shipping in historical (and also fantastical by historically based) settings. Pretty self-explanatory.
  • Post with your character, information, and preferences.
  • There are TWO things you can RNG here, because everybody loves some RNG. First is time period, second is prompt. Two for the price of one.
  • Comment to other people.
  • Be kind to others, play nice, etc.

Time periods and prompts )

draw everything for me, chris samnee.

low-key dating meme.

Not every relationship has to be ridiculously world-shattering and universe-encompassing. Sometimes, two people can simply enjoy each others' company and enjoy that little fluttering in their stomachs when they're together.

That's the case for you two. It's dating, having fun, pure and simple. Of course, the catch is, your relationship is actually so simple that it's below the radar. No one knows about it except for the people involved. Maybe you guys are just private like that; on the other hand, it may be a necessity to keep things a secret from others. Maybe you're both team mates, and others on the team would give you grief, or you're not suppose to be dating, or you're not the type to usually date and you're only testing the waters. Perhaps it's the combination of you two, possibly an odd couple, that would bring some controversy or some teasing. Or, you know, you could not want to deal with friends and relatives being busybodies. Your reasons are your own.

Are you content with stealing moments to be together as a couple? Do you want to make your relationship known and the fact that you can't drives you batty? Remember, there are lots of benefits to dating in secret. You can be yourselves completely, away from prying eyes, and get to know each other better as potential longterm romantic partners. After all, you're not at that stage quite yet.

how to play.

For most people, the lines between platonic and romantic are very clearly drawn. Not true for you two; friendship and romance intermingle in your relationship, and to be honest, it's hard to discern where one ends and the other begins. You're bosom buddies. There's a spark between you. You're lovers, too, maybe, or it could be completely innocent. You're love interests. You're intimate, you're close, you're ride or die. You don't understand why romantic and platonic can't coexist. You don't need labels.

Somewhere further than making out yet not quite going all the way, "fooling around" is a time honored tradition. It's easy, low-pressure, and there are no real parameters - above the clothes or not. Sound good? Maybe you're young and want to try but not commit to anything too carnal. Similarly, you could want to explore somebody's, well, body because they're so different than you. There's also the possibility that you want to make them happy or see how they react to feeling beyond great. Could it be that you're a tease, even?

Or you could just be bored. There's nothing on TV, anyway.

Well folks, we're here in the 1920s. Whether you're in the United States, Europe, some weird fantasy world, or whatever, the point is it's time to live in the JAZZ AGE. Which is like the Dragon Age with less dragons. Parties, drinking, bad decisions, murder... Wait, what? Well, ignore that last one okay? No need to get the cops involved. Besides, we're all here to have fun. And remember: there ain't no party like a Gatsby party because a Gatsby party don't stop until two people are dead and everyone is disillusioned with the Jazz Age as a whole.

Pick your scenario within! )
