angst meme


Sometimes we all want to play some angst and see just how far our characters can and will fall.

- Post your characters, name and series in the subject along with any preferences.
- Go to and roll.
- Play!

1. just depressed.
Things are tough, you're feeling worn out, or whatever the case, you're depressed. You need help or someone else thinks you do anyway.

2. abandoned.
You were left behind by everyone you hold dear and now you're forced to see how well they've adjusted, how happy they all are while you're screaming inside.

3. sick.
Cold, flu, or something even worse, all you can do is lay back and let someone take care of you.

4. fight.
You've been fighting nonstop with the other person and it just keep escalating.

5. break up.
You're being broken up with and they won't reconsider... Damn.

6. separated.
For some reason, you've been separated from the other person for a long time.

7. kidnapped.
You've been held captive for how long now? Maybe they've been torturing you even, using your blood to write ransom notes, threatening to cut off fingers to send next, etc. Rescue is on the way though, right?

8. beaten up.
Just because someone didn't like you or maybe they wanted something you had, whatever the case is, you're coming home sporting some nasty wounds and bruises.

9. jealousy.
You just have this undeniable jealousy suddenly and you need to let it out.

10. cheated on.
This goes beyond just suspicion and you have full on proof of what your lover has done. How do you handle it?

11. apathetic.
You're not sad, you're not happy, you just... don't feel much anymore. The sparkle of life has gone right out of you and you're just going through the motions now.

12. addicted.
Drugs, alcohol, whatever your drug of choice is, you can't fight the draw and you can't draw yourself out of the hole, but the other person is going to try.

13. bad romance.
You know this isn't good for either of you, but you can't stop now.

14. fear.
Nightmares, the feeling someone is following you, etc. You can't shake the feeling.

15. insanity.
You're seeing things and hearing them, waking up only to realize you've done things you don't remember or you're in a place you weren't before. You're losing it and you don't know what to do.

16. guilt.
It's eating you up inside and you have to tell someone about it now. You want to be punished and you won't take no for an answer.

17. loss
You've lost something dear to you.

18. wild card.
Combine some options or make your own!

[ooc: I'd say we should roll for this but I figured a combination of 16 and 17 would work out for this plot. Yay nor nay?]

[ooc: Ah, the lovely angst storm this will be.]

*War was tired. He was so very tired. Many people may not realize this but causing the world to turn on each other really did take quite a bit of effort and to keep it going was draining. Sure, it was fun and he enjoyed it but the job of being one of the horsemen took its toll after a while.

And so, here he is, sitting at a pub with a pint of beer in front of him and his fingers twitching against the ring on his finger. He wants to complain, wants to get these emotions off his chest to someone. Wants to be told what he's doing should stop. Wants to be convinced of it because if he isn't, he's going to end up making things so much worse for humanity.*

[ooc: Can't wait.]

*Erik spends a good deal of time feeling sorry for himself. Things aren't nearly as awful as they used to be, but the pain has yet to subside. He is severely damaged goods and no amount of therapy or medication or love is going to fix that. The past is Erik's present and surely will be his future.

He goes out later than usual and finds himself a seat next to a stranger before ordering a pint and removing a smoke from his pocket. It's going to be a long night.*

[ooc: We're so cruel.]

*War glances over at the man who sits down next to him and he can immediately tell that this is another person who has been screwed up beyond repair by his job. His fingers remove the ring from his hand before sliding it back on; repeating this move several times before stopping.

He sighs heavily and turns towards the man.*

Care to share?

[personal profile] elehnsherr 2012-07-09 11:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[ooc: I know.]

*Erik doesn't realize he's being talked to until no one else responds. He turns his head and lifts an eyebrow.*

I'm sorry?
warisfair: ([b&w])

[personal profile] warisfair 2012-07-10 01:46 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: I love it.]

*War makes a very dramatic show of rolling his eyes and sighing because, he just can't escape the stupidity.*

A smoke. Care to share one?

[personal profile] elehnsherr 2012-07-10 01:51 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: So do I.]

*He pinches his eyebrows together very briefly and reaches into his pocket for another, handing it over and grinding his teeth a bit.*

[personal profile] warisfair 2012-07-10 02:16 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: He he. War is going be a bit of a dick. As usual.]

*He nods his thanks and puts it to his lips, closing his eyes for a moment and lets it lit on its own. Not really giving a shit if the man notices.*
elehnsherr: (Default)

[personal profile] elehnsherr 2012-07-10 02:24 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: I love when he's a dick.]

*Erik looks confused for a second, assumes he's a mutant, and decides not to ask.*
warisfair: ([close up])

[personal profile] warisfair 2012-07-10 02:39 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: Doesn't everyone?]

*He lets the smell of the cigarette and the taste of his beer flood over his senses for a few minutes before turning on the stool, facing the man.* So, tell me, which job of mine was it that made you so messed up in here? *he pushes a finger to the side of Erik's temple as he speaks the last few words*
elehnsherr: (Default)

[personal profile] elehnsherr 2012-07-10 02:49 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: Hurmph.]

*Erik grabs War's hand about half a second after it's moved up to his face and turns to give him an offended, confused look.* What?
warisfair: (Default)

[personal profile] warisfair 2012-07-10 05:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[ooc: Heh.]

*War is just going to let a grin spread over his face. Pulling his hand away, he rests it on the counter.* Which job of mine ruined your life?
elehnsherr: (Default)

[personal profile] elehnsherr 2012-07-10 06:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[ooc: Nngh.]

*Erik starts to tense up and it shows.*

What the hell are you talking about?
warisfair: (Default)

[personal profile] warisfair 2012-07-11 12:55 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: This is gonna get good.]

*laughs softly* Ah, right. I never introduced myself, did I? *extends a hand* I'm War. Pleasure to meet you.

[personal profile] elehnsherr 2012-07-11 01:03 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: *cracks knuckles*]

*stares at his hand and lifts his eyes only after it all starts to click* You're... War.
warisfair: ([fancy suit])

[personal profile] warisfair 2012-07-11 01:26 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: *does 'come at me, bro' motion*]

*grins and wiggles his fingers, making the ring a little more obvious* The one and only. So, tell me, which one was it?
elehnsherr: (Default)

[personal profile] elehnsherr 2012-07-11 01:35 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: *cracks neck*]

*leans back in his seat, breath catching in his throat* What the... f-fuck are... Who the fuck are you?
warisfair: (Default)

[personal profile] warisfair 2012-07-11 03:31 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: *tenses shoulders*]

*sighs and picks up his beer, taking a long drink before replying* I told you. I'm War. The one and the only. One of the four horsemen, at your service. *pause* Well, not at your service. Not really. I answer to the calls of another being.
elehnsherr: (Default)

[personal profile] elehnsherr 2012-07-11 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: *takes a breath*]

*I don't care if this is a dream or if you are just an asshole who knows about me, some-fucking-how; you are going the fuck down and I will not relent. I will not relent.*

If you're joking. *knocks the 'stranger' off of his seat and grabs a fistful of his shirt so he doesn't hit the ground* If you're joking, I'll fucking kill you. If you're not, I will do so much fucking more.

[ooc: *is so ready for this* *oh, god, what have i done to poor erik, this is going to be so good, i love you for agreeing to this*]

*laughs easily and closes his eyes for a moment; finally, finally someone is going to give him what he deserves and it'll be hard to explain to everyone what happened but he doesn't care because this needs to happen or else he won't stop and if doesn't stop, he's going to destroy everything he's come to love* You're going to have to do "so much fucking more" then, because I'm not.

[personal profile] elehnsherr 2012-07-11 03:59 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: *is so ready for this, too, holy fuck* *poor baby ;___; and thank you for coming up with this*]

*somehow, Erik is able to restrain himself until they're outside of the bar (he isn't entirely sure what's going to come out of his mouth during this and he'd rather not have the entire fucking town listening in)*

Do you have any idea what you did? Do you have any idea-- *he takes the first punch - a blow so heavy he can hear War's jaw crack* You killed everyone. You killed me. You killed me.
warisfair: (Default)

[personal profile] warisfair 2012-07-11 04:09 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: *wants it ALL* *i'm so sorry for doing this to him ;___; and i don't know what it says about me for coming up with it*]

*the punch makes him stumble and ow, yeah, that's definitely going to take some time to fix up* Of course I have an idea of what I did. It's my job. *spits out a bit of blood and actually smiles at Erik* Technically, I wasn't the one doing the killing. I just gave the push to start the ball rolling.

[personal profile] elehnsherr 2012-07-11 04:22 am (UTC)(link)
[ooc: *me TOO* *it's okay, he needs this ;___; slkjgs it doesn't say anything bad - just that you think outside of the box*]

How could you do that? How could you do that to all of those people? *he punches again, near the eye this time* How could you fucking do this? *grabs his shirt collar with both hands and slams him up against the side of the building* Fuck you. Fuck you. *lifts him off the ground and shoves him into the wall again; harder this time* Can you see what you have done to me? Can you see the monster you've created?
