The Midnight Texting Meme

The Midnight Texting Meme 

It's the middle of the night and you're trying to catch some z's, or brooding alone in the alleys as one does, when your phone rings and dings and suddenly a stranger or a friend is texting you. What could they possibly want at this time? Is it important? Stupid? Are they drunk or maybe just needy? Pick up your phone and find out! 

  • Post with your character's name and canon on the subject line, indicate preferences as needed
  • Tag others
  • Have fun!

[Have you not paid attention to and/or had issues with your phone over the past half-hour, friend?

If so, when you get around to looking at it, Mr. Winters, you'll find that you've received a couple dozen within that timeframe. The first two are ten minutes apart, and the rest were one right after another.

They all simply read "Ethan."]

(To answer that question? Ethan's phone is working perfectly and he even heard the alert tone, over and over and over again.

But, Lucas was set to one particular tone compared to everyone else's and at midnight when he is struggling to sleep?

He is probably not all that willing to get up out of bed to go over to where it sat plugged into the charger but after the last few? Sleep was just not going to be had until he answered it and ended this once and for all.

He was hoping ignoring it would make it go away, though.

At least for tonight.

Ethan finds himself groaning and as he pulls himself up and over and when he gets to the phone manages a one word reply of "yes".)

["Tee-hee... danger zoooooone!"

And as for Lucas? He's a night owl. And he immediately cracks a wide grin when Ethan's reply comes in. Aw-haw, man, he finally took it!]

Did you see it???

[See what, Holmes.]

If what you mean by "it" is the dozens of texts. Yeah. No shit I did.

(Seriously. The fuck are you talking about, Lucas. Also it's probably not something he wants to know about.

He probably should know. But wanting to know about it is a different matter entirely.)

Do you seriously have nothing better to do than keep bothering me?

(ooc: Please don't mind the non game icons, I don't have the skills/programs/patience to make any rn.)
1019: (Yeah? What are you looking at?)

[personal profile] 1019 2017-03-26 01:33 am (UTC)(link)
Then why didn't you message me back sooner? :(

[It probably is, yeah!

But for the moment, ohh-kay, ohh-kay.]

Not a whole lot else as fun to do right now is what's important.
It's fucking dead over here
Now answer the question for fuck's sake

[OOC: Ha, no worries at all! It would be especially tough for Ethan.]
