winter meme? winter meme.



it's quiet
and the snow's beautiful tonighta winter open meme


snowfall;

stage i; none, streets are already blanketed in white.
stage ii; very light and intermittent.
stage iii; light - moderate. lasts longer periods.
stage iv; continuous, heavy snowfall.
stage v; the hardest of cores - blizzards, snowstorms, you name it.

scenarios;


① fuck the police, this is the best time for a walk. hope you've got a nice thick coat on.

② stranded in the buttcrack of nowheresville? weren't you watching the time? now you've gone and missed that last bus out of there. or maybe you're lost, somehow. what do?

③ literally chilling, in this weather, is quite easy to do. sitting around relaxing in it is a wee more difficult, but sometimes much more enjoyable, especially if shelter can be found. the snow is beautiful to watch, after all.

④ the weather's not going to stop you. your snow fort's packed full of ammo and ready to go. those aren't snow angels over there; they mark where the poor souls you've downed have fallen. be careful with that snowman's head!!

⑤ you're about fifty miles from civilization but there's a roof over your head, so never mind the chilly draught, right? right. you mightn't be the only one lucky enough to stumble upon this little shelter, though. remember to share the blanket.

⑥ everyone stuck outside should be jelly. you've got a fireplace and hot cocoa and damn if it isn't awesome. a heater's not quite so romantic, but it'd do. there'd better be a backup generator in case the power trips.

⑦ mix and match, or make up your own.

[Like hell would she be caught dead out in this weather. Once again, she's stayed in late working, and guess who got stuck with her? THIS ASSHOLE. Luckily, there's food and tea, and Maribelle's actually managed to wrangle up a decent meal.

Call it the experience she got in the war. With everyone taking turns, she pretty much had to learn to cook.]
sleight_of_hand: (Foggy skies)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-08-22 02:43 am (UTC)(link)
[Adachi was too busy looking out the window, his expression a bit hard to read as he watched the snow coming down in piles at a time. Damn, and he thought Japan could get hellish snowfall; this place took the cake and ran with it.]

[He didn't even notice a meal was ready for him until he heard the plate clank down in front of him, and even then it took him a moment to snap out of it.]


H-hunh? Oh... thanks. Didn't think you'd be the cooking type.

[personal profile] damselled 2014-08-22 02:45 am (UTC)(link)
[Wow, that's a lot of snow. Maribelle finishes setting the table and sits down with a sigh]

You are welcome, Tohru.

Well, we all had to cook in the army camps.
sleight_of_hand: (Feeling queasy...)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-08-22 02:58 am (UTC)(link)
[Adachi let out a sigh; dammit, she was calling him by his first name again...]

I really wish you wouldn't do that... we're not that close, you know.
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (Did I just say that out loud?)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-08-22 03:01 am (UTC)(link)
[Call it a case of cultural differences; everyone in her world calls each other by their only first name.]

... Do what? [Aaaaand guess who's lost.]
sleight_of_hand: (Feeling queasy...)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-08-23 02:13 am (UTC)(link)
[Yeah, he was getting that. Adachi let out a huff anyway, like she was supposed to know better.]

Use my first name. It's kinda rude.
damselled: by <lj user= "lolcats"> (That was you?)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-08-23 02:17 am (UTC)(link)
Rude? [Her? Rude? Clearly, the world is ending.]

How is that rude, precisely?
sleight_of_hand: (Er... if you say so)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-08-25 01:09 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah; you know, you're supposed to refer people you're not that personable with by their last name.

[He paused, before rubbing the back of his neck.]

Oh, uh... unless it's a cultural thing...?
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (Good heavens.)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-08-25 01:13 am (UTC)(link)
Really?

[How odd.]

But it seems quite rude to simply call someone by their surname...

[Yep. Cultural differences.]
sleight_of_hand: (W-well then...)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-08-25 01:39 am (UTC)(link)
Well, we usually use our word for mister and miss tacked on to it.

[He paused a moment, turning a bit pink.]

Calling me by my first name all the time implies we're in some kind of relationship or something...
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (But it was also wonderful.)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-08-25 01:41 am (UTC)(link)
Oh? [Suddenly, she remembers what Yosuke and the others call her] Did you mean "San"...?

[Oh, great. Now she's blushing, too.]

It does?
sleight_of_hand: (W-well then...)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-08-25 02:26 am (UTC)(link)
Y-yeah... I mean, if you had a last name, I'd be calling you that.

[Seriously, you will be Maribelle forever. He is never calling you anything more than that.]
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (Did I just say that out loud?)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-08-25 02:30 am (UTC)(link)
Excuse me? I do have a family name; I just prefer to keep it private.

Well, then, do you prefer to be called by your surname?
sleight_of_hand: (W-well then...)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-08-31 02:42 am (UTC)(link)
Well yeah; it's only polite, and I'm used to people calling me 'Adachi-san'.

It's weird when someone actually uses my first name.
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (For the love of all that is shiny)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-08-31 02:44 am (UTC)(link)
O-oh! Goodness, I do most humbly apologize!

[Yep. Bright red.]

Is it really so odd?
sleight_of_hand: (W-well then...)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-08-31 03:18 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah... I-I mean...

[He glanced up at her, a bit pink in the face.]

I-it'd be cool if you wanted to be something... more, but we're just work partners r-right?
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (But it was also wonderful.)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-08-31 03:25 am (UTC)(link)
[Cue Maribelle turning pink.]

I... What?
sleight_of_hand: (Oh... well then)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-08-31 12:29 pm (UTC)(link)
[Adachi flushed harder in response, looking like he was going to start mentally keysmashing.]

Ah...! Forget it, never mind. We're just work partners, that's all... h-ha hah...

[He practically shoved his tea cup into his mouth in an attempt to get his mouth to stop moving.]
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (A woman must have her secrets.)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-08-31 10:51 pm (UTC)(link)
A word of advice? It never does hurt to say what is on your mind, unless that something is harmful.

[She would know... but she drops the not-subject and goes back to her tea.

Good tea.]
sleight_of_hand: (Er... if you say so)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-08-31 11:24 pm (UTC)(link)
R-right, I'll keep that in mind.

[Yuuuup... good tea. Very good tea.]

[.........]

[Oh man, this was awkward...]
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (Did I just say that out loud?)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-08-31 11:26 pm (UTC)(link)
[Very awkward. Maribelle notices this, of course, and gives Adachi A Look over her tea before she sets it down and begins to eat.

Well, at least the meal came out well. It's been awhile since she's had to cook.]


How long do you suppose we'll have to remain here?

[Because considering the sheer amount of snow falling, it's safe to say they're not going anywhere any time soon.]
sleight_of_hand: (You seriously suck.)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-01 12:09 am (UTC)(link)
[Man, it was so not fair that she could cook too. She had to have something wrong with her that was a deal breaker... a mole in a weird place, a scar that looked like the spawn of some monstrous creature, something.]

[Oh good, topic change. Thank god.]


I dunno... when's spring?
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (A chill in the air today)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-09-01 12:13 am (UTC)(link)
[Nope, just a highly critical attitude and a sharp tongue.]

... Ugh.

[She knows he's joking, but she can't stop herself from groaning. When is spring?]
sleight_of_hand: (Default)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-01 12:18 am (UTC)(link)
[Adachi raised an eyebrow at that, a smirk working its way onto his face.]

Now that wasn't a very lady-like noise.
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (Did I just say that out loud?)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-09-01 12:22 am (UTC)(link)
[Did he just go there? He just went there.]

Excuse me, but I am always lady-like.

[Her parasol thinks she's a perfect lady, at least.]
