THE STORY of US MEME (a crossover pairing encouraged meme)

The Story of Us

a [crossover pairing encouraged] shipping meme

Crossover pairings are fun. Arguably, they can be one of the best parts of panfandom RP. After all, there's nothing quite like that spark when two characters just "click," especially when it was completely unplanned. AWESOME.

Unfortunately, in a lot of shipping memes here and elsewhere, the environment isn't really conducive to spontaneity. People usually just stick to castmates or close friends, and don't tag out due to lack of knowledge of canons or just plain intimidation. That's not fun for those of us who want to throw caution out the windows and just try crazy things, like throwing a Thor at a Sailor Moon (which, really, isn't that crazy of an idea if you look at the mythos for both series...).

This meme's for you, risk takers, crack shippers, or people who just want something new. All there is to do is fill out a tiny blurb so that people who don't know your canon will have some idea about your character. Then, go. Play. Don't let anything stop you. Don't know where to go with an idea? Wing it! The prompts here are not the super specific variety that most ship memes have, where you almost have to have canon knowledge. Want to reply to a character but have no idea where to begin? Make things up! The more creative, the better.

The Steps
- Make a comment with your character, canon, preferences, etc in the subject. In the body of the comment, fill out this super easy form. Just the basics.

Name: Jane Doe
Canon: The Best Canon Ever
About: Jane is a shy girl with magic powers.
What kind of character they'd be attracted to: Strong, outgoing types.

- Comment to other characters! Use the RNG, first rolling for category (1-3) and then for prompt.
- This meme was created for crossovers, and that's heavily encouraged, but no one is going to hunt you down if you play with a castmate. Just try to remember the purpose of the meme, okay?

Two Ways to Play
#1 (the buildup)
- Start with the first category, which is how the characters meet. Play that as you see fit. THEN, do a timeskip! If you don't know what that means, it's when you handwave that time has past. Assume the characters have known each other for a while. Move on to a prompt in the next category. Rinse, repeat. You can build a relationship!

#2 (the regular)
- Just play it as usual. Roll for category, then for prompt.

The Categories
1. The beginning
2. The relationship
3. Years later

I. How We Met & the Sparks Flew Instantly (The Beginning)
1. First meeting (no matter how mundane or impossible!)
2. First date
3. Blind date
4. Arranged courtship/marriage
5. Hate at first sight
6. One night stand

II. People Would Say "They're the Lucky Ones" (The Relationship)
2. Taking care of you
3. Meeting the family/showing you home
4. First time
6. Marriage proposal

III. One Day We'd Tell the Story of Us (Years Later)
1. Moving in together
2. BABIES or kids
3. Together again after a long seperation
4. Ending the relationship
5. Old (married) couple, aka Still in Love After All these Years
6. At the end of life

*This is Erika's first date in years, and her first first date in longer than that. She's a great big ball of nerves and more nerves and maybe a touch of excitement. Riley's a sweetheart. Riley complements her well. Riley makes her feel things that she didn't know she needed to feel until she felt them.

It'll only a few minutes before he arrives and she's taking one last glance at the full length mirror in her bedroom. She looks good, she thinks. It's a dress she's always wanted to wear out but never got a chance to. Her hair looks nice, her makeup is perfect, and she's shaking like a leaf.

Was that the doorbell?*

*Riley is nervous. Really nervous. He's dressed himself up in one of his nicer, not-ruined-by-going-after-ridiculous-pieces-of-history suits. He's clean shaven, showered, and has a dozen roses clutched in his hands.

It's been a while since he's actually been on a date. Years of being overlooked and being thrown under the shadow of Ben and Abigail made it hard for him to actually find someone to take out to dinner. Then Erika came along and it felt like life had punched him in the face because there was no way a woman like that; someone perfect like that would ever say yes to him.

Yet here he was and his hands shook slightly as he rang the doorbell and hoped beyond hope that he didn't fuck this up because he really, really, really likes Erika already.*

*Erika brushes herself off, throws on her shoes, and almost falls (but doesn't!) on the way to the door. She's smiling when she opens it; something much goofier and more excited than she's ever let... anyone... see. Ever.*

Hi. You-- Are those for me?

[personal profile] rileypoole 2012-07-11 07:56 pm (UTC)(link)
*When the door opens, Riley finds himself beaming and then... gaping a bit because holy shit, she looks perfect.*

H..hey. Yeah. Um. *holds out the roses and tries to stop staring but he can't* You... God, you look gorgeous.
erikalehnsherr: (3)

[personal profile] erikalehnsherr 2012-07-11 08:05 pm (UTC)(link)
*smiles shyly and tucks a bit of hair behind her ear, blushing faintly* Thank... you. *takes the roses and smiles a little wider* You look so handsome.
rileypoole: (Default)

[personal profile] rileypoole 2012-07-11 08:30 pm (UTC)(link)
*smiles a bit and moves a little bit closer to her* Thanks.
erikalehnsherr: (Default)

[personal profile] erikalehnsherr 2012-07-11 08:32 pm (UTC)(link)
*does the thing with her hair again, smiles nervously, and leans forward to kiss his cheek* The flowers are beautiful.
rileypoole: ((what is going oooon))

[personal profile] rileypoole 2012-07-11 08:43 pm (UTC)(link)
*blurts out before he can stop himself* They're not as beautiful as you. Nothing could ever be as beautiful as you. You're the most beautiful-- *blushes and hurriedly kisses her cheek*
erikalehnsherr: (Default)

[personal profile] erikalehnsherr 2012-07-11 08:46 pm (UTC)(link)
*laughs and goes back to blushing, except a lot harder* O-oh. Th...thank you.
rileypoole: ((don't blame me))

[personal profile] rileypoole 2012-07-12 03:03 am (UTC)(link)
*bites his lip* I'm, uh... You're welcome.
erikalehnsherr: (5)

[personal profile] erikalehnsherr 2012-07-12 04:56 am (UTC)(link)
*smiles nervously* Shall we... Do you want to... go?
rileypoole: ((what is going oooon))

[personal profile] rileypoole 2012-07-14 11:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah. Um. Yes. *smiles back, just as nervously*
erikalehnsherr: (Default)

[personal profile] erikalehnsherr 2012-07-15 12:38 am (UTC)(link)
Let me just... *smiles and walks back in to empty a base for her roses* There we go.
rileypoole: (Default)

[personal profile] rileypoole 2012-07-15 09:22 pm (UTC)(link)
*smiles and bites the corner of his lip* They look perfect. *and by 'they', he really means 'you' but y'know, he doesn't want to become too repetitive*
erikalehnsherr: (Default)

[personal profile] erikalehnsherr 2012-07-15 10:17 pm (UTC)(link)
*smiles softly and looks over at him* Let's go.
rileypoole: (Default)

[personal profile] rileypoole 2012-07-15 10:57 pm (UTC)(link)
*holds out his hand to her* Ready when you are.
