⇥ THE IM MEME ⇤
✔ Post your character.
✔ For this, you can either leave your comment blank or post with "[screen name here] has signed on". Feel free to make your screen names as ridiculous or as serious as you'd like.
✔ Either choose one of the options below or roll the RNG to choose for you.
1 ↻ Under the Influence
Whether it's alcohol or just delirium from sleeplessness, you're out of sorts. What better time to talk to people?
2 ↻ Rant
Something completely pissed you off today. Open up your messenger and vent about it to a friend!
3 ↻ Confession
Have something to say to someone but can't quite work up the courage to tell them face-to-face? This is your prompt.
4 ↻ Secret
Some secrets are easier to type than speak out loud. Maybe you just typed it in the IM window and sent it accidentally, or maybe you've finally worked up the nerve to tell someone something that you've kept to yourself for too long. Either way, there's no time like the present!
5 ↻ BEST. IDEA. EVER.
Whether it was a genuine EUREKA! moment or the product of too much sugar/alcohol/caffeine/what-have-you, you're convinced you just had the GREATEST IDEA IN THE HISTORY OF EVER. Time to share your brilliance with those on your friends list!
6 ↻ Long-distance Relationship
You've been away from the one you love for much too long for your liking. Find them online and lament your situation and/or plan your next meeting! This can also be used as the token smut option.
7 ↻ Argument
Did someone do something so unbelievable that you can't wait until you see them in person to let them have it? Here's your chance!
8 ↻ Gossip
Did you see what Alice was wearing yesterday? Those shoes with that top? What about who Danny brought to the party? Oh, and did you hear the rumor about that girl from the thing? Talk about it all in the relative privacy of your IM window.
9 ↻ I LOLed and Thought of You
You just found something hilarious that reminded you of a particular person. Share and laugh until morning about something only the two of you get.
10 ↻ Free space
Do whatever you want, man! It's a free chat service!
✘ Different fonts and color changes are encouraged. Learn how to do that over here! Rainbow text generator is here and a custom color faded text generator is here (Yahoo IM used to let you do that).
✘ As far as screen names, you can format them to be all one word, give them spaces and proper caps, or even all caps if you want. If it's something like Skype, you can even change your display name at will, so have fun with that!
✘ Both voice and video chat are available for anyone that wants to use them. Honestly, if you wanted to throw a less modern spin on it, you could also use letters. Whatever floats your boat!
✘ There is a possibility that your character is so riled up from rage/nervousness/excitement that they type in the wrong screen name and get a complete stranger.
✘ This IM service also has a random feature, so feel free to try your luck with it.
✘ Be excellent to each other.
