The Captivity Meme


You've been captured -- or maybe you've been held captive for a while now. Whatever the case, you've lost your freedom, and there's a specific person responsible for that. You might be a prisoner, a mental patient, a kidnap victim, or someone's pet. Maybe you're there willingly, or maybe the choice has been taken away from you completely.

Both smut and non-smut scenarios are possible. If you don't want to play smut, please indicate so in the title line of your tag.

1. Leave a tag with your character. Be sure to include any limits on what you are willing to play, as this meme has the potential to be triggering.

2. Someone else tags in and uses RNG to generate a number between 1 and 9. The second character is holding the first character captive now.

3. ???

4. Profit!


1. For their own good. Does this person really think they could make it on their own? It's a big, scary world out there, and you need to protect them from it, whether they like it or not.

2. For the good of society. Forget protecting this person -- it's your duty to protect the world from them! Maybe they committed a terrible crime, or maybe they were falsely condemned, but it's your job to keep them locked up where they can't do any more harm.

3. Because they're not well. How's your bedside manner? Whether you're Florence Nightingale or Mildred Ratched, you're in the position of ministering to the mentally ill. Maybe this person genuinely needs your help, or maybe you're just turning a blind eye to their true sanity.

4. For the money. Higher aims? What higher aims? This person is your meal ticket, and they're staying put until their loved ones pay up.

5. For their love. It might be a case of yandere, or it might be a consenting BDSM relationship. Whether it's by mutual agreement or by force, you're keeping them simply because you love them.

6. Because they're cute and fluffy. Who's a cutesy wutesy? They are! Yes, they are! This person is your pet now. Maybe they're a different species from you, or maybe you just don't care that you're both people. Maybe you're even an alien zookeeper looking after a new acquisition.

7. Because they're your property. Slave? Livestock? Who cares what they think - they're our property, and you decide their fate.

8. For the lulz. Hey, what's a little bondage between friends? You'll let them go, once you're done laughing and snapping photos... maybe.

9. Choose a scenario, or combine several.

"You know, it is so nice to see somebody else in handcuffs for a change," River said brightly as she stood back from checking Maribelle's various bonds. Handcuffs and ropes were secure, but she was also planning to turn on a gravity field in the room that would make movement slow for the other woman.

"It really isn't personal. A girl's got to make a living."

Jack had warned her not to go out alone. This trip had been an engagement present from him - a journey to some of the worlds he was familiar with, including his favorite. Maribelle had more than raised an eyebrow at the bizarre fashions of this world (not to mention the appalling displays of public affection), but had honestly come to enjoy herself on Earth.

And then this had happened. "And just what, precisely, do you believe yourself to be doing?!" she demanded, turning her head to look haughtily it the other woman. Jack had warned her that magic wouldn't work on this world - at least, not in the way she was used to - but she hadn't expected this, of all things. It was such a shame that carrying weapons was mostly illegal here. "And whatever do you want?"

"A paycheck, maybe a hot meal," she replied casually, walking back and forth. Dear god, this woman's attitude was already giving her a headache. She was thankful she'd quieted her when she did with a hallucinogenic kiss earlier; a faint imprint of lips could be seen high on the woman's neck.

"I've been contracted to nab a few choice people for ransom," she shrugged. "You were just the next one that fit the bill. Although I am wondering if you are who you claim to be."

Maribelle's face reddened as the memories of what had happened swam into her mind. She'd kissed her - on the neck, even! Even Jack, for all his flirting and innuendos, had never been so bold! And as if that hadn't been indecent enough, the woman had swept her away while she was incapacitated!

Maribelle struggled against her bonds, the elegant bun she'd had her hair up in untwisting. All she had gone outside to do was look after some scraggly, mangy street cat who had been meowing pitifully outside. She'd fed the poor thing, and was just contemplating taking it with her when the strange woman had attacked. She'd put up a fight, certainly - and a damned good one, at that - but the kiss had rendered her helpless.

"Lowborn cur!" she snarled, glaring daggers at the woman. "You'll get nothing!" Her family wasn't here, and Jack surely would never give into the demands of some common thug. But Maribelle couldn't help but feel a twinge of unease - just what did the strange woman know?
