the ASS KICKING battle meme returns

{ the ass-kicking battle meme }
because, let's face it-- it's what most of our characters do as their 9 to 5.

rules:

  • post with your character's name & series in the title. any preferences or notes to other players go here too.
  • tag around using the RNG, or feel free to make up your own scenario if you already have an ass-kicking prompt in mind.
  • kick ass and take names.

{ i. PRE-ASS-KICKING. }

1. GEAR UP. Can't fight a battle without the proper equipment, right? You're doing whatever you need to protect yourself from the enemy. Charging up mana. Strapping ammo to yourself. All in a day's work.

2. BATTLE ROOM. You can't just storm in there unless you want to get yourself riddled with bullet-holes-- so you've gotta plan how to down the enemy, and fast. Maps, floor plans, elaborate attack strategies.

3. PEP-TALK. All soldiers need it before going into battle. Fighting the end boss? Going up against an old friend? Better raise that morale of that pal of yours. Maybe they're nervous.

4. LAST GOODBYE. You know it's a lost cause. Say what you need to before you head out there.

{ ii. ASS-KICKING TIME. }

5. STAKEOUT. You and your buddy have been waiting for the target to appear for some time, whether you're cramped in a loft with sniper rifles or at a bar undercover with a pistol strapped to your thigh.

6. INFILTRATION. Whether you're navigating your way through hi-tech laser security systems, avoiding trip wires and empty can noise traps or sneaking into the enemy's lair in the dark, you're a pro at infiltration. I hope.

7. UNDER FIRE. From whatever common enemy or beast you pissed off, they're after you, teeth flashing or guns blazing. Better think quick.

8. SUDDENLY, UNARMED. Whatever weapon you use has been deactivated, knocked out of reach or broken. Ensue amazing karate skills.

9. MAN DOWN. You've been downed in battle by whatever you're fighting. Let's hope you're just unconscious and that your comrades are gonna avenge you.

{ iii. POST-ASS-KICKING. }

10. CELEBRATE. The boss is dead, the world is saved. Pop open that bottle of bubbly, will you?

11. HEAL UP. Whatever you fought is dead, but it sure did tear you a new one before it went down. Time for some first aid.

12. REFLECT. What's changed, now that the battle is over? Is the battle ever really over?

13. MOURN. You lost some good guys back there-- nothing's going to change that. You better come to terms with it before it consumes you.
