In the spirit of the season...

The Silent Hill Meme

Maybe you've come here by accident. Maybe on purpose, or together, or alone. Either way, the fog is settling down thick, and all roads leading out have crumbled away, leading only to deep cliffs and chasms. You're stuck.

Welcome to Silent Hill.

1. Post your character with their name/canon in the subject line.
2. Tag around!
3. You can each choose or roll for a reason you're here.
4. You can even roll for a situation.
5. No powers! Sorry--enjoy that.
6. Oh, and try not to die.

NOTE: This meme can potentially contain triggers, for violence and psychological torture in particular. Please take heed!

why have you come?
1. You're searching for someone. A relative, a friend, a dead lover. Someone has led you to this quiet little town.
2. An accident. You got lost in the fog, the roads fell off into chasms, you thought you saw someone in the road and crashed. Time to venture farther in for help.
3. Returning visitor. You've come here before, to the lovely little resort town, and had a beautiful time. But this second trip will be different.
4. An escape. You're running from something ... or someone. A crime you committed? Grief? Too bad you ran to the wrong place...
5. Wildcard, or make up your own!

what horrors do you encounter?
1. You just met. You've only been able to find each other, no one else in town. Stores are deserted, doors are locked, silence is everywhere. What happened here? What's going on?
2. A shuffling in the night, the fog, or in a tight dark hallway of an abandoned building. A strange creature is moving toward you. Maybe humanoid, maybe not. They can be powerful. They can be slow. They can vomit acid. Time to pick up whatever plank, knife, or gun available to you ... if you both want to live.
3. A dark secret from your past is returning to haunt you. It manifests in hallucinations, the town reaching deep inside your mind to paint the surroundings in grotesque symbolism. Yet, the other person can't seem to see what you see.
4. The walls are peeling away. Or maybe you got knocked out and just woke up to an entirely different kind of town. There are chains, rust, fans, orange light, splatters of blood. A horrific version of what used to be around you. Welcome to the Otherworld.
5. That other person with you--you see them as someone they're not. Someone from your past that you loved or feel bone-wracking guilt over. And no matter what they say, that they're not, they're someone else, you just can't help but see...
6. The town has driven you insane. The monsters, the guilt you may carry. It's all coming back to you. You need to lash out. At anything. At anyone.
7. Wildcard, or make up your own!

[He's got so many pent up issues, let me count the ways. It's likely that he is in Silent Hill by "accident," when in reality he was probably drawn there because he's a horrible person and he deserves it he needs to face a his inner demons or something idk. I'm good with anything--go nuts.]

[ ooc: do you mind people who're voicetesting?

Say if Jackson's drawn to the town for his own reasons, and Sam's running away from his own responsibilities and they both ended up in town because they need to face whatever hang ups they have. ]

[I don't mind. Full disclosure: I'm not familiar with your canon at all, if that was something you were looking for. I wouldn't be able to tell one way or another. Everything sounds perfectly fine to me otherwise.]

Still, it helps!

[ There's a pier heading off into the middle of the lake; grey water fading into even greyer fog. It's not the river he'd fallen asleep in, and there's no sign of the cat he'd been travelling with.

Sam tries to keep the edge of the tub he's in from running into the wooden poles, but too late, the hollow clang from the impact rings strangely through the air. Quickly, he scrambles out onto the pier, taking his bags with him (including a bandolier that he would be more than happy to leave behind.

He'll rather find somewhere a little less open, even if he can't sense any danger. Lost, and most definitely alone, he takes the only path there is, not sure if he wants to run into anybody else. ]
