(revamped) CAUGHT IN THE RAIN

CAUGHT IN THE RAIN MEME

It started out quietly, and then, quite suddenly, you're caught in a storm with an endless downpour. Time to quickly find cover! Nothing much to do but to wait it out. Where is the rain happening? How are you coping? Why are you out when it hits?

RULES
• Leave a comment with your character's name and fandom.
RNG for a number between 1-10 to get your scenario. Mix and match!
• Have fun!
SCENARIOS
i WHERE:
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 BEACH |
Not exactly the best place to be during a rainstorm, however it is possible to get caught in a sudden storm.
005 FOREST | Mud, bugs and all the rambler's paths are washed away so you don't know how to get out.
006 SKY |
On a plane? A pegasus? You were there when the first drop fell.
007 EMPTY CITY |
Maybe it was a zombie apocalypse or WW3. It's safer outside when all the nasties take refuge indoors.
008 AT SEA |
Nothing is worse than an unexpected freak storm here. Except sea monsters.
009 TEMPLE |
It's beautiful, but leaky.
010 WILD CARD |
Your call.


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 SHIRT |
Well... y'gotta do what you gotta do.
005 MAGIC |
Wave that wand or chant a spell.
006 CARDBOARD | Out of a dumpster. Nice.
007 LEAVES |
Not under a tree: just one really huge leaf.
008 CAVE |
Not very deep, but it keeps off the worst.
009 NONE |
You don't need cover, screw convention.
010 WILD CARD |
Your call.


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.
005 ANGER |
WELL YOU KNOW WHAT. SCREW YOU TOO, RAIN.
006 ACCEPTANCE | You had to be here anyway, it wasn't a choice.
007 SCIENCE |
Everyone else is inside but you've got work to do.
008 ACCIDENTAL |
Lost track of time? Forgot your coat? Oops. Now you look like a wet rat.
009 KISSING |
They kissed you. How are you supposed to leave them alone out here after that?
010 WILD CARD |
Your call.

[now, Hiccup working on something for hours isn't that unusual. it's something Astrid understands and accepts, and when time allows she even sticks around to keep him company if there isn't much she can do to actually help.

she doesn't roll her eyes until the rain starts, pouring down for over half an hour and he still hasn't come to the meeting hall. there's dedication and focus, and then...there's Hiccup.

it might take some convincing for him to delay...whatever he's working on this time for a few hours, but Astrid has her ways. she heads down to the beach, walking alongside Stormfly who generously provides cover. she can't see Toothless in the gloom of the weather, but she doubts he's very far. Hiccup is, unsurprisingly, hard at work and barely seems to register the rain at all.

Astrid sighs fondly, and walks forward to come level with his work, squatting down next to him and watching his hands.]



How's it coming along?

Q-QUAAA?!

[ why is she flailing, why is she distressed at this, why does she care when it is literally water off a duck's back. the world may never know. ]

[ It's one of those larger islands, not quite around the archipelago but close enough for him to make the journey in a single day, that comes along once every few months with incredible secrets to offer. Through the pelting rain, Hiccup waves Stormfly and Astrid closer as Toothless crosses a canopy and on the other side is a forest valley with what looks like a ruined building overgrown by vines and trees. It's not a Viking construct, that much is clear from the elegant spiral towers and flying buttresses.

The dragons don't like the rain but it hardly bothers them otherwise, and Hiccup beats the wind with Toothless to hover over the dilapidated ... temple. Tipping up his helmet, he calls over to Astrid. ]


We should head down, maybe we can spend the night there. I can't risk Toothless losing his connecting rod to the lightning if it gets any closer.

[ There was a time when Stephen could have chosen ambition instead of this.

He could have gone to the Olympics. His parents would have supported him with careful, tearful, dishonest modesty, and he would have become famous and probably a lot richer than he is now. Maybe he would even have had more opportunities to change the world if he had.

But he didn't. He chose school instead. He directed his skills somewhere else, becoming a hunter, a tracker. He spent time in the Amazon, trailing rare creatures for days at a time before finding them for the famous biologists who dogged his heels. He took ice samples in Antarctica and belly-slid with a group of penguins. In Maine, he helped clean birds soaked with oil after a spill, and pushed a stranded whale off the beach. He even skirted the edge of the law, responding to a call for divers when the goal was to block a huge underground pipe leaking illegal chemicals into Lake Michigan. He had a long and varied history even before what he'd been doing up until half an hour ago.

See, these anomalies had begun popping up all over England. And through them, there was the past. Or the future. Gateways to different geologic ages, letting through creatures that had no place in the modern world. He'd been a part of the effort to find out what was happening and to control the impact. Protect the present and the future and the past all at once.

And keep it secret from everyone.

Until he was fired.

That was half an hour ago. The story is complicated. It involves a woman. It involves faith that Stephen completely misplaced. It involves, now, the fact that he's alone and he can't think of anywhere he wants to go.

And it's pouring down rain.

Stephen sits himself down on a park bench, sideways, and lets himself get soaked to the skin. Blood washes off of him in the rain. Nothing major. Just a bit scraped up from a fight with an ancient direwolf. He's had worse. ]

[He spends a lot of time out and about in town, avoiding being cooped up in his room at Granny's, learning the town, getting people used to his presence. Right now he's in the park, waiting for Emma and Henry to meet him there. It hardly bothers him when it starts raining. With all the leather, he'll hardly get wet. Others aren't so lucky though. Like Mary Margaret.

One of the things he has in his satchel just happens to be a piece of cured leather, which he spreads out over his head, and then offers to her.]

Anna had been out and about for a while, mostly just poking her head into a shop here or there-- trying to find something to do or look at. However the shops she frequented hadn't restocked since her last visits and nothing sweet seemed appealing, so the entire venture was beginning to seem futile. She had actually been on her way home at that point, since it had begun to rain and she figured that now was a better time than any to get going. But just as she was about to leave the shopping district, something caught her eye that made her reconsider her plans for the day. She had to squint and think about it for a minute, but the face was in fact familiar. After standing there for a second too long and staring for even longer, the light bulb finally went off.

"Jack?" she asked, jogging lightly over to the shop awning under which he stood.
