SWITCHING SIDES MEME


Say you're in a war. Whichever side you're on, you want out. Either your side is losing or your beliefs have changed or you're trying to get close to the people important so you can get rid of them and end everything, you're going to switch sides. Maybe you end up having to kill people who used to be your comrades, your friends. Maybe you're acting as a spy. Maybe you're acting as a double triple agent? Calm down there, buddy. Maybe you just want to run away entirely.

This doesn't only have to apply to wars, of course. Maybe your friends are arguing and you changed your mind about who you agree with. Maybe you're trying to decide what to have for dinner and originally you wanted pizza but now you want a burger and everyone is pissed at you. The point is, things have changed. You have changed. What are you going to do now?

• Top level your character. Include any details you might think are relevant. Or don't. As always, we're not the cops.
• Reply to other people's top levels!
• Have fun!

Someone Is Sleeping in My Bed!



It's morning in EST. But maybe not for you -- A little too late to be sleeping but y'know what? That's okay. People nap. Sometimes the bed is oh so cozy and you want to snuggle under a blanket and sleep forever. And you don't care if it's your bed or not. You're going to sleep. Like a boss.

Too bad someone doesn't agree.
Rules
The Poster is the character who is asleep.
The Responder is the one who discovers the sleeper.
Therefore, the Responder must do one of three things

I. Decide you know this person! (Castmate, previous threader, whatever.)
Go to Random and Roll.

a. Wake them up - You don't care how friendly you are to the person in your bed; they need to get up.
b. Happy Awakening - Such a shame they're so deep asleep when you're in the mood. How about a nice wake up call? (if you don't like smut, keep this to cuddles, kisses, hugs, or reroll)
c. Prank! - Oh, this has just go to stop. They need to be punished. But how?
Can't beat 'em, Join them - Push 'em over and snuggle up. You're too tried to deal with this craziness right now. Or sleep on your couch.
d. Let them Sleep - Whatever, it's noon. They're asleep and you got things to do. Regard them or disregard them.


II. Decide you have NO CLUE this person is! (People that haven't threaded with each other before, crossovers, castmates who haven't met.)
Go to Random and Roll.

a. Scream 'OMGWTFBBQ GET UP' - While this is probably the default reaction, it's a pretty honest one.
b. Prank! - What a better way for you to remember this moment of meeting than by painting a mustachio on your new 'friend's' face? (Remember, it's your bed. Be wise on what you do.)
c. Gently wake them up - Oh, the poor dears! They must be exhausted but they can't stay here. Be nice, even if it isn't IC for your character. This is what you get for rolling. Shake them up quietly. Or reroll.
d. Get to Know them NON-Biblically - Well, they're asleep. But they left their wallet, important work, or identification out (no matter how OOC it may be)! Let's see who's REALLY sleeping in your bed. (Use your own judgment on what you find. As a suggestion, have the most they find is the sleeper's name and maybe place of work.)
e. Tie 'em up - FUNCTIONAL tying up. Not kinky, no matter what the other party might think. Let them continue their blissful moment of rest. They'll answer questions later and you'll be safe and sound.


III. Decide - f**k the police. You hear me right. F**k 'em.
You move forward and make your own fate!

THE HERO'S JOURNEY MEME


There is pattern in many stories. Many center around the concept of the hero himself, and his path into the unknown, for either something he has to save or as a form of growth, in what Joseph Cambell studied and defined in his book The Hero of a Thousand Faces as the Monomyth, a classic sequence of events that follow the hero or heroines and their similarities with the human experience.

All steps in the heroes journey are all able to be repeated, mixed, or even skipped over, in events that can be roughly categorized as forms of departure, initiation, and return.

Much like all memes, events can be either chosen or randomized through 1-3 and then 1-6, at the players’ choice, as portions of a story they might want to tell.

DEPARTURE
① The Call to Adventure
② Refusal of the Call
③ Acceptance of the Call
④ Supernatural Aid
⑤ Crossing the Threshold
⑥ Belly of the Whale

INITIATION
① The Road of Trials
② The Meeting with the Goddess
③ Woman as Temptress
④ Atonement with the Father
⑤ Apotheosis
⑥ The Ultimate Boon

RETURN
① Refusal of the Return
② The Magic Flight
③ Rescue from Without
④ The Crossing of the Return Threshold
⑤ Master of Two Worlds
⑥ Freedom to Live

healing the broken meme
a shipping meme


The events of many canons have left its characters ravaged, unable to be the whole people they once were. They can never go back to the innocence they had before. However, they can find someone who can pull you back from the brink. Some say love can conquer all ills and cure all broken people - the jury is still out on that, but enough people subscribe to the notion that it may have some merit. With the right affection behind it, can it be the elixir to heal traumas or mend angst? For this meme, it can be. No matter what your what your problem is, from daddy issues to being mind controlled to hating all humans or being just a jerk, all you need is healing from the right person.

All in all? This is a shameless meme playing with the idea of "cured by love." Love it or hate it, it's prevalent in fiction, both fan and published. And sometimes, no lie, you just want to play it and not be judge for the pure shlock you know it to be. Here is the place; now is the time. However, you don't have to go for unrealistic escapism. One partner trying to help the other through trauma is not an easy task, and there are bound to be setbacks, resistance, and hurt feelings. And what if BOTH partners are a little bit broken? Can they survive together, or will they bring each other down?

how to play
- Comment with your character and preferences. Feel free to talk about your character's problems. You might also want to mention if your character is the one who needs to be healed or can do the healing. Or perhaps you and your thread partner can play two roughed up characters learning to trust again!
- Reply to others.

The Body Heat Meme



Post with your character! They're now stuck in a very cold place of your choice. It can be anything, such as a freezing chamber, a cavern or a small cabin in the midst of a blizzard. The choice is up to you.
Comment around! Now your character has some company in this bone-chilling environment. The two of them share two things in common: clothes completely unfitting for this weather (be they summer clothes or even lingerie) and a blanket.
A blanket? Yes, just one warm blanket and no other ways to escape the cold. The two of them will have to share it in order to stay alive in this weather. Don't worry, you're sure to find a common language in this terrible situation!
So, uh, have fun, I suppose. Try to not freeze to death!
Protip: friction and body heat are both excellent ways to fend off cold.

WELCOME TO HOENN UNIVERSITY



A sprawling college campus located just beyond Lilycove City, Hoenn Regional University offers some of the best in education about Pokemon, on all sorts of subjects from competitive battle theory, history, theology, to all sorts of scientific disciplines. Trainers, students, professors and Pokemon all roam freely among the many buildings, allowing for all sorts of interesting events to occur. Of course, this being college... well, all of the standard concepts apply.

Let's see where your adventure in the Pokemon collegiate world will take you!

1. SILPH CO LABORATORY WINGS: The place for all of the scientifically-minded trainers attending HRU, Silph Co has generously funded a sizeable complex full of advanced laboratories and some of the most learned Poke-professors around. Just... watch out for stray Skitties and the like.

2. OAK LECTURE HALLS: Though normally just known as The Ball, due to the deliberate construction to look like a Pokeball from the top, this circular set of lecture halls can seat hundreds of students per class. Though considering how dry some of the lecturers can be, most likely half of them are asleep.

3. DELIBIRD CAFETERIA HALLS: Where trainers (and their Pokemon) get their grub. Fully stocked buffets for all types of diets, along with professional Poffin and Pokeblock chefs working around the clock to make sure that everything doesn't get devoured by a stray Snorlax by noon.

4. SEVII DORMITORY TOWERS: The 7 main apartment towers, mandatory living for Freshmen, though you'll see a mix of everybody from new arrivals to grad students milling about. No battling in the halls, please (unless your RA is "conveniently studying for finals".)

5. MACHAMP ATHLETIC COMPLEX: Do you want to get tough? Do your Pokemon want to get tough? Then you go to the MAC. Battles are condoned here, not only between Pokemon but also between trainers, as martial arts seems to have gotten pretty popular amongst the student body.

6. THE QUAD: Because every college has a Quad. The main grassy stretch you see in every promotional flier for Hoenn U, come and relax between classes (or trip across some unlucky student's blanket after you realize you're 10 minutes late for History of Gym Battling).

7. DOWNTOWN LILYCOVE: The nightlife is strong here! At night and on the weekends, the port town becomes almost overrun with college kids looking to relax after a strenuous week of studying... or whatever it is college kids do. Just watch out for drunken Pokemon staggering across the main streets after getting one too many Tipsy Poffins.

8. WILD CARD: Want to take your fun elsewhere? Make up your own scenario! College is supposed to be some of the best years of your life, right? Then what could be better than college with Pokemon?

This is certainly an AU MEME, meaning that any character from any canon can be attending Hoenn Regional University. Just be sure to give a quick blurb about who they are, what they're studying, their Pokemon team, etc. Whatever you feel is pertinent!

UPDATE: With the advent of Pokemon Go, Hoenn U has invited representatives from Team Valor, Team Instinct, and Team Mystic to spread some pride and competition throughout the campus. Wear your team colors with pride, students! Pokestops are available at all of the major landmarks on campus, there are impromptu battle arenas scattered in hidden areas, and somebody's rigged an online points system to link up with your phone Pokegear to track how each team is doing. Just make sure that team rivalry doesn't spill over into the classrooms (unless you know your professor is totally on Valor).

Now, go out there and get that Poke-diploma!

Netorare (寝取られ) is a sexual fetish designed to cause sexual jealousy by way of having a character indulge in sexual activity with someone other than the protagonist.


Would your character cheat on a significant other? Under the right circumstances? Never? Well, luckily, the hotel is perfectly adept at creating extenuating circumstances and pocket universe AUs where anything can happen. Yes, anything - even your most loyal heroes and faithful hopeless romantic cheating.

Not just cheating, though. They're loving getting it from someone else, no matter what the case may be. Perhaps they're guilty, perhaps not. Whatever that means, they're addicted to sex with this interloper. This phenomenon is called "cuckolding" in English, and in Japanese, the kink is called netorare. In the latter, the tale almost always begins with reluctance upon the part of the one being stolen away, yet ends up with them willing and eager to break the heart of the one they loved.

Today's offering will allow you to play these scenarios from many angles: from the one cheating, to the one "stealing" them away, and even from the one being cheated on. It also allows for some peering into psychological and emotional kinks. Not all is dark and dire, though; there is some romance and fluff to be had even here. Of course, most situations will be...sticky.

Don't think too much into that.

HOW TO PLAY
• Comment with your character and preferences. Be sure to include if you'd prefer playing the theif or the stolen, though be open to both for maximum use of the meme. Most characters can switch depending on the prompts.
• Comment to others.
• Let RNG decide your prompts or pick them out yourselves.
• Remember, not all cheating will involve mustache-twirling villains. Your character doesn't have to be a bad person to do these, necessarily.
• Note that in netorare, the stolen party doesn't have to be in a romantic relationship when they're taken away. They can be a friend, parent, or sibling of whom they're pulled from.

PROMPTS

stolen
① Willing: You are completely willing from the beginning in this affair, out of cruelty or something else.
② Reluctant: At the beginning, you are not consenting to this without either serious coercion or blackmail. Yet, as time goes on, you become willing. Maybe even more so than the initially willing person.
③ In Love: This is the fluffy, romantic prompt. You're in a relationship with a person you don't love, and you're cheating with the person you really care for.
④ Too Good: You don't want to keep this up, but the sex is way too amazing.
⑤ Drugged: You're addicted to the drugs that make you addicted to the sex.
⑥ Prostitution: This was at first a way to make money; now, you like your work.
⑦ Slutification: Once, you were such a nice, pure person. These days, you're modified into the type who'd just love to be fucked and show it in all the lewdest ways.
⑧ Trying to Stop: You can stop seeing them in secret at any time!
⑨ They Give Me Nothing: Your significant other can't satisfy you at all because of lack of time, lack of attention, or lack of endowments.
⑩ No One Can Do It Like You: Only your illicit lover can make you feel this way. There's no replacement.
⑪ Age Difference: You need someone younger than you with more stamina or someone older with more experience.
⑫ Forced to Watch: The person being cheated on is brought in to watch against their will, usually by extreme force.
⑬ Brainwashed: You love this because someone's screwed with your head.
⑬ Consensual: Actually, the person your with knows all about this and encourages it. You're swingers!
⑮ Fucked Silly: You don't know what you want in your own addled mind.
⑯ Pushed Away: You wouldn't do this if your lover didn't ignore and hurt you all the time.


thief
① Because I Can: There's no real reason to take this person from someone aside from seeing if you can.
② Revenge: They ruined your life...you'll ruin theirs by tearing apart relationships.
③ To Hurt the One You Love: You want to get the best of your enemy, and to do this, you're turning their closest person against them and dependent on you/adoring of you.
④ If I Can't Have You: You wanted this person in the past. Now that they're with someone else, you don't want them, but you don't want them to be with their significant other, either.
⑤ One-Sided Love: Your intentions are pure. You love them, and they should be with you! They just don't know it yet.
⑥ You Belong to Me: You're not the person's main squeeze, yet you want to be and you want everyone to know that you're having sex. So you're marking them up, not being subtle, having sex in risky places...
⑦ Impregnation: The ultimate show of ownership is pregnancy, so you'd love to get your secret lover with child and get away with it all.
⑧ Brainwashed: You'd never steal someone away normally, but you're under the influence of evil.
⑨ Ruin You for Anyone Else: They'll never find pleasure with others, no matter what.
