Test Drive Meme

Test Drive meme!

Because all our characters are the modern reincarnates of the characters we know and love, you need a modern mundane AU! Post your character with a couple details about who they are now. Use a prompt to set the scene, or do something of your own! And tag around.

->Stranding Shower Inclement weather has suddenly forced you to take shelter. There's someone else under this overhang or bus stop - this might take a while, so you might as well get to know them.

->Mall adventures You work at a mall. Or you want to buy something. Or maybe you just loiter around. There's a lot of reasons to be at the mall!

->Mafia Menace Armed thugs with catlike mutations are attacking someone to tell them to stay out of the metaplot! This will end well!

->Cliffside Calamity Vegas has turned into a city atop a mountain. Things are strange... perhaps you have to climb to get to your house now, or take an elevator... or perhaps you are looking at some of the construction that is going on, or making the best of it and taking boat ride on the new lake that has shown up?

->Fairytale Wonders Or perhaps you simply wanted to go hiking or skiing today, and suddenly there is a cat-squirrel-bird-badger mutation in your way. Or you are checking out the Orbital Tower that has shown up.

->Superhuman Sighting You have an interest in seeing one of the numbered - is that one there?

->Superhuman Surprise You felt hollow for a moment, and now you're numbered! Suddenly you're that much closer to canon and manifesting a mutation, a power, or a strange memory! Probably in public!

->Wild Card Combine prompts or pick something less alliterative! Monsters! Cultists! Boring days at the mall!

Mall Adventures
[Once a month, Stefan used to drag his kid sister down to the gelato shop for sea-salt ice cream. Even when she's no longer in the same city, he finds himself following the same routine, right down to accidentally ordering two cones-- ("Wait, but she's not with you today," the cashier had said, jolting him back to reality.)

Of course, she had said it AFTER he'd gone ahead and paid for two cones, and since there's no way in hell he's eating this much, he's trying to give it away to the next person he sees. Who could resist sea-salt ice cream, right?]

[To himself, mainly:] Maybe I should've looked into doing something else tonight.

Fairytale Wonders
[Stefan's used to random animals roaming around the park. It comes with the territory, and he's grown up bringing bread to feed the ducks. Problem is, he's pretty damn sure that a squirrel-duck is roaming his usual bench.

He expected ducks. He expected squirrels. He sure didn't expect BOTH in the form of the same terrifying, honking creature that's threatening to eat his arm if he doesn't hand that bread over. See Stefan slowly inch away from the... squirrel-duck thing (who allowed them to breed???), see Stefan try to escape its clutches, and see Stefan plunge headfirst into the lake instead, because that was clearly his endgoal.]

[There's barking at the shore of the lake, loud and excited, and if he looks towards it, he will see a tiny white dog bound over towards him. PERSON IN THE LAKE, clearly everyone must be alerted to this!]
stefanged: (that's rough buddy)

[At least there weren't any human witnesses at the scene. Stefan groans, making his way towards the shore (and the tiny white dog) and promptly leaning forward to catch his breath once he makes it onto land.

It's not like the lake's some terrible place, but dang, it was cold and now he's sopping wet and this is basically the worst way to catch a cold-- He shakes his head, stifling a slight laugh at the dog.]
Hey, little guy.
notbloody: (stop that!)

I'm a girl!

[So rude. Does she smell like a boy? Really now. But that's not the point here. She trots a bit closer and peers up at him.]

You should get inside and get dry and drink cocoa that smells weird.

[The dog talks.

Wait, the dog talks? And he's a she?? Stefan peers down at her too, kneeling so that he's at her level.]


[He sneezes, barely able to hold his elbow up to his mouth in time.] Yeah, yeah, I'll get inside, but... you... you're a girl? [He is focusing on that, rather than 'holy crap, you can talk, medical science would like to have a word with you.']
notbloody: (Pft.)

Of course I'm a girl.

Everyone could smell that. [Maybe he's already caught a cold and his nose is all clogged up? the sneezing makes it sound like it too...]
stefanged: (welp there it is)

[personal profile] stefanged 2014-12-01 01:24 am (UTC)(link)

Yeah? I think they've got better senses of smell than me. [He's about to sneeze, so he just takes a deep breath and starts to head inside.] Hey, do you have a... ["owner?"] companion or something? Or were you just by yourself?
