Haunted House Meme

The Haunted House Meme

This is not a very nice meme! If you have any major or typical triggers, this may not be the meme for you.

Invading haunted houses is a time-honored tradition that doesn't necessarily have to take place on Halloween night. However, you've decided to take up the mantle of the classic B-horror movie idiot and enter this gloomy old mansion after sundown, All Hallows Eve. Unfortunately, this isn't your average spooky manor and each room in this dreadful place has a new horror to introduce. Another shock to throw your way. Will you survive the night? Will you want to stay forever? Up to you, pal. Enjoy your time in Casa De La You're Fucked.

1. Post your character, stating name, canon, and any prefs/changes (e.g. women only, not #4, AU, aged up, etc.) in the subject line or body of the comment. Please note that this meme is open to both sexual and platonic content and you may want to list non-sexual rp as one of your prefs.
2. When other characters tag in, they'll be using ye old RNG (1-14) to figure out what room the scene will take place in.
3. Most scenarios involve a villain/victim relationship between the characters. In the case of these rooms, the initial poster will take the role of the victim and the responder will be the villain unless otherwise oocly discussed. I'm not your mom. Do what you want, bro.
4. Have fun, don't eat the candy, and have a nice night, everybody.

The Rooms (RNG):
1. The Foyer: The world goes topsy-turvy for those who enter the foyer. Sooner rather than later, they wake up from their blackout strapped to an operation table in a windowless, white room. The heavy sterile stench of medical equipment invades the senses. What will happen next? Some impromptu Frankenstein's Monster-style surgery? A thorough examination of a less incision-inducing manner? Who's to say!

2. The Grand Ballroom: As soon as this room is entered, its occupants' outfits are magically switched out for costumes of any and all varieties. These costumes will take over any character's actions, and possibly their mind as well (that's really up to what the player prefers). Will a fireman now fight a princess, or will someone get cattish because of an attached faux tail? Both characters don't have to be affected, but at least one should suffer the room's idea of a good time.

3. The Grounds: Arroooooo! Here there be werewolves (or whatever you'd like of that nature) and a surprising amount of flora to duck and hide behind. Sadly, these accursed grounds are constantly under the effect of a full moon, and these were-critters have a good idea of how to sniff-and-scratch their way to any target or prey. Better keep on the move and see how things go.

4. The Attic: Who would have thought there would be ghosts in the attic? Here, spirits reside, not all of them friendly and big-headed like in the cartoons. Some will possess you… some will slam you against the walls and ceiling until you've learned your lesson about midnight trespassing.

5. The Kitchens: Upon entering the kitchens, the friend or stranger you were traveling with is compelled to down the contents of a nearby glowing green vial. God, they're a dumbass, because now their insides are starting to curdle and—oh. They've been split in mental half and are starting to resemble a certain Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Half the time they're calm and polite. The other half? More dangerous than they've ever been (which is saying something depending on the individual). Watch your back.

6. The Dining Hall: Dining hall—kind of funny that this is where all the carnivorous beasties come to play. Be they vampire or mere crazed cannibal, nobody's safe as long as the other person's lingering about, licking their chops and contemplating how best to divide their new 'friend' up.

7. The West Tower: Fuck yes, there's a tower. Shut up. Anyway, here is where one will encounter their worst fear manifested. Is it the death of the friend? A mummy wrapped up to the nines in Egyptian cotton? The strike of a match that sets the whole world ablaze? Deal with it, buddy, because these aren't mere illusions. That fire can burn.

8. Basement: The basement smells rank, like something—or someone—died down here. A lot. The scent only gets stronger and more nose wrinkling the farther one travels down the stairs and—oh. Was that the sound of the door locking behind you? Now, you're locked in with a psychopath. A real crazy, sick individual that needs extensive help. What's the best solution? Reason with them? Charge at them with a fire extinguisher? Hmmmmmm.

9. The Bathroom: Similar to the foyer, entering this room transports you to a totally new location. This time, the room both white and padded, and—once again—without any visible exits. Furthermore, the room's occupant is caught tight in a straightjacket they can't rip free from and screaming won't do them any good. Will the doctor be kind enough to release them after a brief chat, or are they in the mood to test out some shock therapy?

10. The Lake: Past the werewolf-housing grounds is a large lake with a small dock and rowboat available. Yet, taking that boat out might not be the best idea—this lake is infested with frightening sea creatures, and once you fall in… something will drag you down and make sure you can't get out again. Be it a siren of the deep convincing you to skinny-dip or a kraken's dangerous assault on your boat, yeah. The lake isn't any safer than the house's insides.

11. Master Bedroom: Don't fall asleep in this room, because when you wake up, it'll be somewhere in a galaxy far, far away. Alien abduction ain't always quaint and '80s-esque, homes. Sometimes it's fucking terrifying. Sometimes the little green men or tall blue catfolk don't want to just 'phone home' or 'hair mate'—they want to peel back your tendons and see what's cooking. Anal probing is really only funny until you're the victim. The worst part is the lack of control and lack of understanding. But maybe you'll be okay if you agree to become a magical girl.

12. Playroom: What looks like a harmless children's nursery from the outside is one of the more sinister areas in the mansion. Here is where your childhood fears are most likely to appear. Killer clowns, life-size dolls with un-ending smiles, puppets that would rather pull your strings—all of that and more takes insidious root in the playroom. They've been lonely for a while, too. Thanks for stopping by.

13. Living Room: Etched in chalk on the floor of the living room is a summoning circle, and the weird thing is… this one? This one is actually going to work. No teenage mini-goth bullshit here, this is real magic(k). Whether your character drew it or simply stumbled upon someone's forgotten spell, it's too late to stop the pact. Some demonic creature will be brought forth from the worst hell dimension imaginable, and there's nothing left to do but barter or run. Hint: both options suck.

14. The Billiard's Room: Everyone loves games. Well, perhaps not these games. Here, the billiards table awaits its next players, but losing may end up forfeiting more than just your honor or a game of simple strip poker. Whatever of the many games you play, just getting the pool balls out or the other implements shows that there are torture tools, waiting to be used on the loser, and an overwhelming compulsion that losing comes with a terrible price.

15. The Conservatory: You don't know how you ended up inside of this room. The door going in had been locked and barricaded against all entry, and yet somehow a panel had opened from the pull of an old lampstand sending you and your companion spiraling down a secret entrance into this place, and now the door is simply gone, trapping you inside the boarded up room. Overgrown with hungry, ravenous plants demanding attention, you have to think fast on how to tend to them.

16. The Front Lawn: The house had looked safe on the outside, but you never even got past the front porch before you found something to capture your attention. There was a stump there, stained red with blood. Closer inspection found manacles to either side and, just out of sight a rusty headman's axe. Whoever sees the axe first will feel an overwhelming compulsion to take hold of it. The tree yearns for more blood.

17. The Anywhere: Mix and match any scenarios you like! Make up your own! This is the freeform option that's always available, whether the RNG gives you the number or not. Remember, memes are for fun. Follow your heart.

... Yeah. Look, I know I said the lake would be a good idea, but I've changed my mind. This place doesn't smell right, and you couldn't pay me enough to get me to get in that water.

[Coming from a shark girl, that likely means something.]

[personal profile] nyan_nyan 2015-10-31 02:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Haunted house? Ha. Ha! Sure it was spooky and drafty and full of inexplicable sounds - but the worst she'd gotten the whole time she was in there were a few scrapes from dangling bits of damaged house and a mildly turned ankle. She's had sorer ankles from dance practice, she's pretty sure. Not scary. She didn't even, like, pee herself in fear or anything!

Just... almost.

In truth, Ranka's still shaking as she heads out the back door to poke around the yard, eyes darting left and right at every little sound, hair flicking up to direct the sounds more fully, like a second set of ears. "...I bet it's just someone trying to mess with me. That's all any of this is. That's how... these things work. Yeah."

[personal profile] true_noir 2015-10-31 04:25 pm (UTC)(link)
The door closed behind Koharu as she entered what looked like an old Billiard's Room. The exploration of the mansion had been going well, but she'd been just ahead of Nanami and Mikito when it had slammed shut. There was a pounding from the other side. Mikito's voice was muffled, but just barely audible. "My barrier can't penetrate the door. Hold on! Nanami's going to pick the lock!"

But, from the way it rattled, even the other girl's skills wouldn't be enough. Something was wrong about the door, like there was a magic over it and the whole room. From the other side, a small door in the wall opened, and a purple haired girl emerged. She smiled darkly towards Koharu and motioned towards the table. "Your friends won't be able to get you out... but perhaps we can play a game? I've been trapped here a while. I think you can only leave if you play."

And win, but she didn't say that.

[The worst part of exploring this creepy house isn't the frightening atmosphere. It isn't that chilling feeling of something watching from the shadows in every corner, it isn't the distant sounds of footsteps or laughter or occasional shrieks. The terrifying thing isn't the fact that this house could indeed be haunted.]

[No, the terrifying thing about exploring this creepy house? Is exploring this creepy house with Ramsay Bolton.]

C- can we go home yet?

[Reek finally manages to ask that question as they approach the room with the billiards table set up right in the middle. There are... implements, strange things set aside in every corner of the room, things which definitely would better belong in the depths of the Dreadfort's dungeons. Reek tries to ignore their presence.]

The Kitchens - Custom Prompt

[personal profile] throatstab 2015-10-31 05:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Given the condition of the rest of the house, the kitchens were downright pristine. The surfaces were cleaned and free of dust. Pots were bubbling away and some warm smell was coming from the oven. It all seemed rather homey.

But there was that noise of a knife chopping through something.

A little green monster looked up from where it was chopping vegetables, turning to look at the Dragoon who just intruded on its sanctum.

"I bloody hate Halloween."

Although Owen is just whining for the sake of whining, Jack has to admit he has a point. The number of false alarms that they've had to sift through to check for actual alien activity has stretched Torchwood thin. Current count stands at exactly one real incident, a Weevil mauling, in an entire week. Tosh and Ianto are off double-checking what is either another potential Weevil attack, or someone using the holiday and the masks as an excuse to hurt someone.

But this, this is different. "Actual Rift activity associated with this one," Jack comments. "And, last I checked, this wasn't open as a haunted house attraction," as the old stone house looms ahead of them. Something older, it should look more at home further North.

Gwen and Owen pile out of the car, and Gwen sighs deeply. "With the number of teenagers we've been chasing so far, it's almost like being back on the force."

"Let's just get this over with." Jack takes the lead as the three of them go up the steps, he checks the door, which slowly opens for him. "Trick or treat?"
