( caught in the rain )

caught in the rain

It started out quietly, and then, quite suddenly, you're caught in a storm. Time to find cover. Nothing much to do but to wait it out.

Scenarios listed below for those who want 'em.

001 PLAYGROUND - Well, you can try to hide under the slide or maybe in the jungle gym... at least you're some place fun?
002 PARK - Always happens, caught outside trying to take advantage of the weather... and it ends up pulling a fast one on you.
003 STORE FRONT - Better hope they have an awning you can take advantage of
004 THE BEACH - Not exactly the best place to be during a rainstorm, however it is possible to get caught in a sudden storm
005 WILD CARD - Anyway you want it

ii HOW:
001 TREE - Not the best cover, but it'll have to do, stay close to the roots and you won't get too wet.
002 UMBRELLA - Most conventional... Kinda boring. But it works.
003 NEWSPAPER - Not permanent, but it'll have to do. Good luck
004 BAG - Well... y'gotta do what you gotta do.
005 NONE - You know what. You're a rebel. You don't need cover. Screw convention
006 WILD CARD - that's the way you need it

iii WHY:
001 REJECTED - Welp. Rejection sucks. And no one will see you crying in the rain.
002 WAITING - For the bus? For someone else? For some revelation? What are you waiting for.
003 MELANCHOLY - Sometimes the best place to feel a bit down is out in the rain.
004 HAPPINESS - Is everything going your way? Are you singing a refrain while walking down the lane? Just singin. Singin' in the rain.
006 WILD CARD - Anyway you want it.

>> POST with your character
>> TAG others, use RNG if you need to, or just make up your own scenario if you want!

(OOC: I wish I had something from the series - At least Stitch is still a blue fuzzy alien? So kinda sorta close? :P)

[Stitch isn't sure how he ended up in the lab. He knows his head hurts when he tries to think to hard, that there have been tests, cages, pain. Then there was an explosion, shouts of things he doesn't understand - "Andalite bandits," whatever those are. What he DOES understand is the hole which appears in his cell.

He runs out into the rain, skittering until he's about to collapse. There's a playground ahead, full of nooks and crannies, perfect for hiding. The little alien drags himself under cover.

Uh-oh. Looks like someone else is already here.]

((The whole series has basically retaken over my life lately.))

[It's a simple raid. Or at least it was supposed to be. A quick in-and-out, mess things up, get out. That was all. Of course, things never go as planned. For one, the rain. It wasn't supposed to be raining. The forecast called for slightly cloudy weather. This is a little bit more than slightly cloudy.

Which made it hard to travel in fly morph. Much to her dismay, she was backup today, the cavalry. There to step in when things go wrong. Boring duty. Cassie,Jake, and Ax were the in-and-out team.

Rachel had been lurking nearby in fly morph, waiting for some sort of signal. Then the rain started, and rain and flies don't exactly go well together. She and the others got separated trying to run from the crushing raindrops falling from the sky.

She flies around until she's able to find some cover, somewhere where the rain isn't trying to knock her out, and demorphs. It turns out, she on some playground toys, in a covered area, across the bridge from the slide.

Then the explosions. Something has definitely gone wrong. She's running over a list of morphs. Grizzly's not fast enough, too big. Elephant's fast enough, but definitely too big to morph in the park. She needs something dangerous though. Wolf maybe? Not her favorite battle morph, but it works for the others sometimes, right?

She's already decided on wolf, when the creature comes skittering up one of the beams holding the structure. At first she thinks it's a raccoon. It's about the size of one, a small one maybe. A...

Blue one. ]


[Real articulate, Rachel. Upon closer inspection, it doesn't appear to be anything from Earth.]

Just what we need [She mutters to herself] another alien.

[In the rain, he hadn't smelled the human. Or.. was it human? It had the shape and the movement but the scent is... There's a mix of things here, it reminds him of the time [someone] took him to a zoo. He can't pull up her face, it hurts his head, but he remembers the overwhelming smell. The scents of animals mixing together.

But there's only one creature here. How can it all be coming from her?

At "alien" his ears pop up. Through pants, he manages to get out -]

Notta alien. Stitch. Earth home.
grizzlys: (Let's do it)

[personal profile] grizzlys 2014-06-23 04:50 pm (UTC)(link)
[She jumps at the voice. Great, it talks. That's... actually a good thing, when she thinks about it. It'll make finding out what he is easier.

Earth is it's home though. Like Ax. She studies the alien for a moment, before glancing back towards the facility. It had come from that direction, and ran out here the moment the explosions started.]

Okay, you live on Earth. Did the Yeerks capture you?

[And she watches carefully through the rain to see its reaction to Yeerk. She's ready to morph if she has to. ]
mapsincolor: (Stitch Grrr)

[personal profile] mapsincolor 2014-06-24 02:08 am (UTC)(link)
[The reaction is instant. His eyes flash green and the spines on his back raise. Though the display is alarming, it's not directed toward the human. He mutters, paces, the word "Yeerk" obviously triggering something.]

Tried to... put thing in Stitch... In ear...

[Bright pain shoots behind his eyes. He shudders, wrapping both sets of arms around his head.]
grizzlys: (Super model good looks)

[personal profile] grizzlys 2014-06-24 02:18 am (UTC)(link)
[A part of her relaxes when it becomes clear that whatever it is, it's not a controller. A controller wouldn't act that way.]

Yeah, they do that. They take control of people that way.

[She shifts, glancing toward the facility as she hears the roar of a Tiger. She really wishes she could be in there right now, kicking some major Yeerk butt, but this little thing is important too. And Jake would kill her if she let the little alien get away.]

Is that your name... Stitch? Or is it your species?
mapsincolor: (Stitch Excited)

[personal profile] mapsincolor 2014-06-24 02:45 am (UTC)(link)
[there's a bit of a manic giggle from the alien.]

Bad worm. Stitch ate it. Yeeeeeeeech!

[Then there's a head-tilt at the question.]

Stitch name. No species. Jumba make Stitch, bits and pieces... like you!

[Maybe she's an experiment too? Maybe that's why her smell is strange!]
grizzlys: (That is way gross)

[personal profile] grizzlys 2014-06-24 04:25 am (UTC)(link)
[Like... She has half a mind to be offended. What right does this little creature have to call her bits and pieces or something. Nevermind that it ate a Yeerk. That had to be gross, though she's almost impressed.]

What do you mean, like me. Nobody made me.

[Well, except for her parents, but that was a whole different thing. And she wasn't about to have the birds and the bees talk with an alien named Stitch.]
mapsincolor: (Stitch Excited)

[personal profile] mapsincolor 2014-06-24 12:10 pm (UTC)(link)

[So far the human has not screamed, or run, or tried to hit him with a truck. She might be alright, even if she seems to not notice the smells. Stitch drops from the ceiling, sniffing carefully. A couple of the scents are starting to become clearer, more distinct.]

Human... yeah, most human... but... bird... some kinda bird, and a bug ohhhhh FLY!... and....

[There's a stronger one rising now, musky, something to do with teeth and... breakfast? No, porridge, "Someone's been eating my porridge."]

grizzlys: (Let's do it)

[personal profile] grizzlys 2014-06-24 04:24 pm (UTC)(link)
[She hasn't tried to hit it, yet. But it can smell all those things on her. Fly, maybe. She'd just been a fly. But she hadn't been a grizzly since the raid on mall last weekend.

Without thinking she reaches out to grab it up.]

You can smell all that?

[If that's so then she definitely can't let the Yeerks get their figurative hands on this creature. What if there are more of it? She has to let Jake know.]
mapsincolor: (Stitch Grrr)

[personal profile] mapsincolor 2014-06-24 09:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[Stitch darts back.]


[He doesn't run, yet, because rain is just about one of his least favorite things. The human seemed more startled then angry.]

grizzlys: (Thinking about kicking your ass)

[personal profile] grizzlys 2014-06-25 05:02 am (UTC)(link)
[Did that thing just call her rude? It was rude.

Okay, Rachel. Deal with this. She can't let a smartmouthed alien thing get the better of her. Ignoring the roar of animals, and the noise of dracon beams being fired, she moves onto her knees, and pushes wet hair over her shoulder.]

Look, sorry. [She doesn't sound like she really means it. It's just polite.]

So you're home is Earth, right? Are there more of you?
mapsincolor: (Stitch Sad)

[personal profile] mapsincolor 2014-06-25 11:56 am (UTC)(link)
[Yeah, no, trying to grab at people is definitely ruder! And she doesn't sound sorry - she sounds grumpy! But also worried. Stitch is keeping his distance, but he does answer.]

Only one Stitch. No more Experiments.

More of you?

[He can hear the roaring clearly, along with laser fire, clattering hooves. Even the human, with the weaker ears, is picking it up. She keeps flinching toward the noises, as if she wants to run to them.]

More you in there?
grizzlys: (Dangerous intent)

[personal profile] grizzlys 2014-06-25 06:18 pm (UTC)(link)
[Grumpy is right. The playground isnt much of a shelter and she's barefoot in her morphing outfit, stuck away from the fight.

As if on cue Jake's thoughtspeak voice fills her head. < Rachel, where are you. We could really use some backup in here. >

Of course she cant answer.]

Yes. There are more like me. My friends. They're in there fighting the Yeerks.
mapsincolor: (Stitch Grrr)

[personal profile] mapsincolor 2014-06-25 09:30 pm (UTC)(link)
[Stitch's ears prick up. He can't hear the thought speak, but he's picking up something. It's gone before he can figure out what it is.

At "Yeerk" there's another growl.]

Neegda na la WORMS!

[Whatever that means, it is obviously NOT polite!]

Gonna go help? Bad there BAD.
grizzlys: (Xena: Warrior Princess)

[personal profile] grizzlys 2014-06-26 05:15 am (UTC)(link)
[It does sound like things are getting bad. Grizzly bad. Not just wolf. Which, ugh, means she'll have to head out into the rain to morph.]

Yeah, I need to go help. Listen...

[Rachel doesn't just want to leave him there. She doesn't want him running away. Jake will get mad if he gets away while she's in there saving their butts.]

Do you think you can wait out here while I kick some worm butt? [As an afterthought] My friends will want to meet you.
mapsincolor: (Stitch Grrr)

[personal profile] mapsincolor 2014-06-26 12:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Go?! THERE?!

[Maybe he hasn't explained right. He barely knows this person, but he doesn't want her dead! And that's definitely what's going to happen if she goes in there - no claws no teeth she's not even wearing shoes!]

No BAD things lasers pewpewpew you DEAD!

[He's getting his second wind now. All spines and antennae are at full attention.]

Stitch go you stay!

[He's going to run right back in there unless there's something... bigger to distract him!]
grizzlys: (Winning smiles)

[personal profile] grizzlys 2014-06-27 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
[Claws and teeth are definitely needed in this fight, and she doesn't plan on joining it without them. She's halfway to crawling out from the playset, when Stitch starts in.]

What? No way! Those are my friends in there.

[She pauses, and takes a breath. Rain beats down on her legs, sticking out from under the cover. It's cold, and she shivers.]

I've fought these guys before. It's dangerous yeah. But I have a special weapon. [She lets a grin spread across her face.]
mapsincolor: (Stitch Excited)

[personal profile] mapsincolor 2014-06-27 10:31 am (UTC)(link)
[Friends. Her family. And that is the smile of someone who can't be argued with.]

What weapon?

[He wonders if it has something to do with the animal smells.]
grizzlys: (Grizzly: Hear me roar)

cw: morphing/body horror

[personal profile] grizzlys 2014-06-27 01:21 pm (UTC)(link)
[It has everything to do with that animal smell.]

Watch and learn alien friend.

[With another grin she jumps down from the playground and ignores the bark as it digs into her bare feet. Shw closes her eyes and focuses on the familiar grizzly dna inside her.

As always morphing is different each time. This time course brown fur begins to sprout across her body. Her nose pushes forward forming a snout. Hands sprout claws. Then she starts growing. Growing and growing and growing. Her spine stretches and she falls forward on all fours.

The grizzly mind surfaces like an old friend. It takes her no effort to control it.

When she speaks next her voice is in his head.]

< Secret weapon. >
mapsincolor: (Stitch Excited)

[personal profile] mapsincolor 2014-06-28 02:29 pm (UTC)(link)
[Stitch's eyes widen. He has some metamorphic abilities but nothing on this scale! The mass conversion alone is mind-boggling. Instinctually all his spines jolt to attention.

Then come words. Words in his head. His language sensors kick in, adapting to the psychic input. It's a technology! Hmmmmm... Stitch tries directing his thoughts back to the bear/human.]

< Eeeeeheehee! BIG teeth! That's a GOOD weapon! >
grizzlys: (Let's do it)

Stitch and Rachel are my new favorite thing

[personal profile] grizzlys 2014-06-30 03:07 am (UTC)(link)
[She bears those big teeth at him, an a bear's approximation of a grin. But it's not the teeth that are deadly, it's those claws, and the force behind every swipe of those paws.]

< It's a great weapon. >

[She seems to consider for a moment.]

< I'm not going to tell you to wait out here. I know I wouldn't. But if you join the fight.... be careful. We don't want you getting killed before we can get you back to your home or wherever. >

[personal profile] mapsincolor 2014-06-30 12:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[The bear/human is absolutely correct. While Stitch has grown far past his original design... he is a weapon too. And whatever has been done to him, he is not going to let it happen to anyone else, or their family.

Even the family of strange Bear/Humans who are a little scary and rude but still seem like... kind of an interesting person.

Whatever speed she takes off at, Stitch easily matches it.]

< Why help me? - Oh yeah what's your name? >

[personal profile] grizzlys 2014-07-01 01:17 am (UTC)(link)
[A grizzly isn't slow, but it isn't a cheetah either. And she's already soaked through.

She considers not answering Stitch. There's the whole secrecy thing, after all, but he's already seen her as a human, and he's already seen her morph. If the Yeerks ever did get there metaphorical hands on him, it wouldn't matter if he knew her name or not.]

< Name's Rachel. > [The second question earns him a bear shrug, a weird gesture for the animal, but normal for a human.]

< I guess that's what we do. We help people, we save them from Yeerks. > [Stitch is just as much a victim as anyone else, the Humans, the Hork-Bajir, the Gedds. (Not the Taxxons, those creepy crawlies don't get sympathy, they volunteered for this)

It doesn't take much for her to bust down the door to the facility and then let out a roar to announce her presence. She's here, and she's ready to kick some Yeerk butt.]

mapsincolor: (Stitch Excited)

[personal profile] mapsincolor 2014-07-01 11:45 am (UTC)(link)
[Stitch lets out a cackle, racing across the ceiling. There's a giant, bladed creature leveling a gun at Rachel. A blaze of green light screams from the barrel - laser - which Stitch intercepts and hurls it back. The gun explodes.]

Hahahahaha BULLSEYE!

[He's sticking close. Rachel's friends probably have the same transforming abilities, and he doesn't know what they look like.]
