We can't stay.




Being with someone can change your life. But what if you can't have your old life back? For your own sake, the sake of your relationship, or by no choice of your own, you have to leave the old you behind. It can go from anything to changing a behavior to changing your whole identity, and all of it can be difficult. One thing is clear, however; to continue where or as you'd lived before is not an option if you want to keep this person you care for in your life.

how to play;
  • Comment with your character and preferences.
  • Respond to others.
  • THERE WILL BE QUESTIONABLE CONTENT. Just because it's a shipping meme doesn't means everything's fluffy; in fact, more options than not have some unfortunate implications.


prompts;
  1. Open Secret: You two have never specifically said who you are in this new place, though you've never denied it.
  2. Witness Protection: To protect your lives, you must live under assumed identities.
  3. Your Real Life: What you knew before was false. This is the actuality.
  4. After a Tragedy: All your friends are dead. Your group is shaken. You saw someone you love murdered. The only other person you have left is the one you're with.
  5. Second Chance at Life: After a brush with death, you've decided to do things right and actually live.
  6. I Don't Want this Life, Dean: You don't want to continue in the family business - er, in your old ways set up by someone else, so you cling to someone who can give you a normal life.
  7. Criminal: You did a bad thing and are wanted. For your protection and the safety of the one you lo...that person, you have to hide.

  8. Turning Over a New Leaf: You're genuinely trying to become a better person and you can't do that with the reminders of your old home and old life.
  9. Rehabilitation: Your lover is helping you get over your wounds, your traumas, or your flaws.
  10. Blank Slate: You have to have a new life because you don't know your old one! All you know is the person you're with and the things they can tell you.
  11. Partners in Crime: You two are rough around the edges, but you're reformed. Really, you just want a peaceful life!

  12. Old Habits Die Hard: No matter what your life is now, you can't shake the need to double check the locks or hold your magic wand tight.
  13. Guilt: You're guilty about your relationship, so you have to reside in hiding.
  14. Through Elicit Means: You got with your partner through cheating and you want to keep that fact on the low.
  15. Stolen Away: You stole your partner - from a bad situation or from someone cruel - so you have to keep your heads down
  16. Taboo:
    1. Incest: It's better for you to live where no one know's you're related.
    2. Age Difference: You can always fake IDs and birth certificates.
    3. Interspecies: There has to be somewhere that doesn't have the prejudices of your home.
  17. Tyrannical Government: You're political enemies drawn together. Perhaps you're working to undermine the government, or maybe you've escaped from that place and are living in peace.
  18. Pulled from the Darkness: Your previous life was so terrible, you don't want to even ponder it any more. End of story, it doesn't matter.
  19. Dependent: You don't know anyone else in this new world of yours, or you don't know how to navigate it, making you dependent on your partner.
  20. Protecting Them: You're with them and hiding them for their own benefit.
  21. They Don't About Your Past:
    1. Secret Monster: If they knew about who you used to be, they'd be disgusted and want nothing to do with you.
    2. For Them: You're dangerous to be around, so you can't clue them in lest an old enemy or your own abilities come back and harm them.
    3. Florence Nightingale: They found you and took you in to help you, no questions asked. You couldn't help but fall for them.
  22. Using Them: This new life is just a sham. You want them to be your camouflage, maybe even getting others to believe you've changed.
  23. Faked Turned Real:
  24. Both of you were using each other for cover, but now...you're not sure.
  25. Brainwashing:
    1. One-Sided: You love them and want them to believe that things have always been like this. Can you be blamed for going about it this way?
    2. Mutual: Both of you think you've always lived this life, thanks to outside forces.
  26. Who Am I, Really?: You love your partner, but you feel like you're losing yourself.
  27. WILDCARD

7, with a little bit of 13?

[This was getting to be too damn much.]

[Adachi couldn't wrap his head around why the hell she would still want to be around him. He was a fucking murderer, he even told her as much, threatened her life, and she still wouldn't take the hint. Either this chick had a death wish, or she really was just dumb. He didn't want to believe the last part, but maybe all her brain power was being sucked into her boobs or something.]

[Whatever, he didn't know, and he told himself he didn't care; the best thing for the both of them was that he bailed while the bailing was good. It was better for the both of them in the long run, right? She didn't get hurt, he could just go on and suffer by himself; everyone was happy all around.]

[So why the hell did he feel so damn guilty as he glanced around, making sure the coast was clear, before bailing for the door?]

[If Maribelle had known what Adachi was thinking, she would have slapped him. Again. Really, the man had already earned - more than earned - quite a few, and far be it from Maribelle to put up with any more of his utterly ridiculous nonsense than she already had. Really, what he needed was a good shaking.

But when she saw him now, he seemed furtive, almost afraid. Half-amused, half-annoyed, she crossed her arms and cleared her throat.]


Might I ask what you're doing?
sleight_of_hand: (W-wait a sec!)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-06 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
[FUCK BUSTED.]

[Adachi spun around, trying to hide the fact that he had what few things he had all packed up in a bag behind him. He let out a sheepish laugh, pressing himself up against the door. Maybe he'd get lucky and be able to bolt without her following... o-or maybe be able to outrun that parasol?]

[He could dream, right?]


Ah... heh... uh... w-we're low on milk! I was just going to get some.

[And never come back.]
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (Comfort has no place in fashion!)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-09-06 01:48 am (UTC)(link)
[She knows what he's doing, and she strides towards him, throwing a pointed look at the bag.]

Oh? I had no idea one needed a travel bag to get groceries. If it will truly take you so long that you are in need of it, perhaps I shall come with you.
sleight_of_hand: (UWA!!!)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-06 01:51 am (UTC)(link)
[...crap.]

Ah, no, that won't be necessary! Really!

[His hand fumbled for the door knob, his heart pounding in his chest. Had to get out... had to get out!]
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (A chill in the air today)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-09-06 01:54 am (UTC)(link)
[Maribelle grasped at his hand, an impressive glare aimed in Adachi's direction.]

Has no one ever told you how impolite it is to lie to a lady?
sleight_of_hand: (...mrrr?)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-06 01:59 am (UTC)(link)
[...he was boned, and not in the fun way.]

...ah... heh...

[Oh dammit, what could he even do?! He needed to get out of there before she got violent, because he was fairly certain the violence was coming. And really, he had his head bashed in by Dojima enough to last him a life time. He really didn't need more of this!]
damselled: <lj user= "headset"> (I do declare.)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-09-06 02:01 am (UTC)(link)
[Her expression turns sad, then, and she shakes her head.]

Tohru... are you running away?

[she closes her eyes for a moment, and then it's back to glaring.]

I won't allow it.
sleight_of_hand: (You seriously suck.)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-06 02:07 am (UTC)(link)
[...damn she could change expressions at the drop of a hat. For a moment, he thought he would be able to escape, tell a little white lie and bail while the bailing was good, but nope. There was no escape.]

[He was doomed.]

[So instead he let out a tired sigh, flopping back against the door.]


...you're such a pain. Why do you even want me around so much?
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (Good heavens.)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-09-06 02:18 am (UTC)(link)
I am a pain, you say? Codswallop! You're the one who keeps up this charade. Are you certain you know how to be truthful with yourself?

[Glaring intensifies, possibly causing the Fearful effect.]

Why do you wish to leave so badly?
sleight_of_hand: (Yeah whatever)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-06 02:53 am (UTC)(link)
[...he could half picture Magatsu laughing at that glare, but he wasn't so easy to amuse. He fumbled for a response, before finally settling on an irritated glare.]

What, I shouldn't?

[...because that was the most mature response.]
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (A chill in the air today)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-09-06 02:56 am (UTC)(link)
Certainly not. Have you any sense at all?

[Yep. Still glaring.]
sleight_of_hand: (You seriously suck.)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-06 03:04 am (UTC)(link)
Hah; look who's talking.

[...what the hell, he was going to get the hell beat out of him, probably. May as well just let loose.]

You really must not have a really high desire to live, hangin' around me like this.

[personal profile] damselled 2014-09-06 03:06 am (UTC)(link)
Tohru, the only advantages you have against me are your gun and that creature you have inside of you. You know very well that I am not a weak woman.

[Excuse you, she has all the sense.]
sleight_of_hand: (A cop and a gun)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-06 03:13 am (UTC)(link)
[...his gun, hunh?]

[Adachi paused, his expression hard to read for a moment, before he reached into his jacket. The look on his face did not change as he brought his gun out, leveling it at her.]


You're right. This is one of my only advantages against you, isn't it?
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (Good heavens.)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-09-06 03:15 am (UTC)(link)
[What.

Startled, Maribelle steps back, shaken - but looking him dead in the eye. If she cowers, she may as well lie down and die, especially around someone like Adachi.]


... Are you truly so craven?
sleight_of_hand: (The brains of this operation)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-06 03:20 am (UTC)(link)
[A self assured smirk graced his face, but the cocky expression didn't seem to reach his eyes.]

Pretty sure we already established that, Mari.

[He let out a snort, keeping his gun trained on her as he planted a hand on the door knob.]

C'mon, you should be thanking me for leaving. I'm saving your life yet again, and look! I don't even expect you to pay me back for all those other times.
damselled: waffles--icons on Tumblr (I do hope you're not going to disappoint)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-09-06 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
[Her heart is pounding so hard she's pretty sure he can hear it, but Maribelle steps forward carefully, looking Adachi dead in the eye.]

And yet, I am not thanking you.

[If she survives this, he is so getting slapped.]

I don't believe you, you coward.
sleight_of_hand: (I've got an urge...)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-06 03:27 am (UTC)(link)
[Adachi's expression hardened, and his grip tightened on his gun as she stepped forward.]

Well now... I almost think you've been talking to Yu-kun, 'cause this feels awfully familiar...

[His tone was dark as he spoke, and that was the only warning Maribelle got as he fired, the bullett passing so close to her ear that it clipped her hair.]
damselled: by <lj user= "lolcats"> (That was you?)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-09-06 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
[She lets out a scream as she throws herself to the side, her one of her ribbons loosening and falling from her hair. But she manages to get up after a moment, and without thinking, she stalks up to Adachi and slaps him in the face.

Good move, Maribelle.]
sleight_of_hand: (You seriously suck.)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-06 03:33 am (UTC)(link)
[Adachi stood there for a moment, completely stunned. He had been about ready to bail when she threw herself to the side, but there she went again, smacking him. Smacking the man holding the gun. Smacking the man that had fired a warning shot at her.]

[...this stupid bitch.]


You have got to be kidding me right now...
damselled: by <lj user="virizion"> (A chill in the air today)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-09-06 03:35 am (UTC)(link)
[She freezes in fear whens he realizes what she's done, but there's no going back now. She tries to hide it, though, and glares up at him - but she can't stop shaking, and she can't stop the tears from filling her eyes.]

I am most certainly not, you horrid dastard.
Edited 2014-09-06 03:36 (UTC)
sleight_of_hand: (Yeah whatever)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-06 03:39 am (UTC)(link)
[Adachi stared at her again, torn between applauding her or just putting her out of her misery. Clearly she needed to be stopped, because she was just a disaster magnet.]

You really want to die, don't you?

[Seriously, he was leaving. She would be safe. What part of that was so hard for her to grasp that she had to go and smack him?]
damselled: <lj user= "headset"> (I do declare.)

[personal profile] damselled 2014-09-06 03:44 am (UTC)(link)
[Clearly, she was mad. She was facing a madman with a gun, and she had just slapped that madman with a gun. What was she thinking? What was wrong with her?]

No. I do not at all wish to die. But I also shall not run from that which frightens me.

[She was just as scared as him (of him) of all this - if not more so.]
sleight_of_hand: (In darkness I rise)

[personal profile] sleight_of_hand 2014-09-06 04:18 am (UTC)(link)
[Adachi looked like he wanted to lift the gun again; point it at her forehead and just end her. His hand twitched, anxious to do just that, but he didn't; his gun remained pointed down toward the ground as he stared at her. Finally, after a long moment, he let out a sigh, a hand going to his forehead.]

...why are you putting yourself through this, hunh? What's in it for you? Pride?
