the return of the nightmare meme



the nightmare meme

"So on his Nightmare through the evening fog
Flits the squab Fiend o'er fen, and lake, and bog;
Seeks some love-wilder'd maid with sleep oppress'd,
Alights, and grinning sits upon her breast."

- Erasmus Darwin, "Night-Mare"


Everyone has nightmares right? The dark thoughts lurking in the depths of our minds. Our fears out of our control. At least they only occur in our sleeping hours... right?

This meme is designed to wretch that comfort right out from under you.

Your character is stuck in their worst nightmare and worse yet, someone is stuck in there with them. Whether it's a familiar face, a stranger, intentional or accidental, you have to dig your way out. Good luck lost souls. And remember. The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.

Feel free to use the prompts below as a jumping point, or make up whatever you want. As a warning this meme will possibly contain TRIGGERS and MATURE CONTENT. Read ahead with caution.


Prompts:

i. the WEAVER (the nightmare)

001 - waking nightmare - wake up. Wake up. Wake. UP. The only sure guarantee out of a dream. And yet when your eyes open, the fear still surrounds you. The nightmare has its hold. You've woken up to your own nightmare. Why hasn't it gone away?

002 - stuck - Slowly, you begin to realize this is all just a dream. But you can't get out. You're stuck to the whims of your subconscious, unable to escape. Completely aware that this is just a nightmare, but unable to escape.

003 - pursuit - You're being chased, endlessly, by something, someone. Maybe it's a boogey monster, maybe it's only a metaphor. But you're out of breath and places to run.

004 - the end of your world - The apocalypse. Brought about around you. Maybe it came slowly, like a slow burning fire-- or perhaps it was a conflagration. Your entire world is falling apart around you and you can do nothing to stop it. Or perhaps even worse, you're the cause.

005 - your greatest fear - Maybe your greatest fear is something common, like spiders, or something which seems completely mundane, such as the color yellow. Whatever it is, it's surrounding you. Keeping you in it's embrace.

006 - ground hog day - It starts out harmless. One day, not unlike any other. Except, it's repeated over. And over. And over. And over. Until slowly your mind just.... slips away.

007 - i have no mouth and I must scream - slowly, against your will, you're transforming. Turning into a creature unlike yourself. Perhaps a monster, maybe a pile of goo. Whatever it is, you're helpless to stop it.

008 - free style - take these prompts and throw em' out the window. Do it however you want.



ii. the THREAD (why the other character is there)

001 - the devil on their chest. - Maybe the dreamer was someone in your way, someone who had done harm to you or someone you care about, maybe it’s just for shits and giggles. But you are the one who has stuck them in this nightmare, and you want to watch them fall victim to their own mind.

002 - mind link - for some reason you share a connection with this person. Perhaps it's just the passing of the stars, a jolt of electricity, or their mind reaching for yours. But now you’re stuck here, trying to get them out.

003 - experiment - Just a quick injection, maybe a little sting, it won't hurt. That's what the men in coats said. But look where that got you.

004 - save them - you've been tasked to save this person, no matter the cost. Maybe they're a stranger, maybe they're your closest friend, even your greatest enemy, but you have to save them.

005 - just following orders - It's a job, and you've been tasked to it. They may have some info you need. Or maybe you have to keep them in for the benefit of someone else. It doesn't matter. It's only a job. Right?

006 - we have ways of making you talk - They have something you need. And it's time you squeeze it out of them.

007 - free style - take these prompts and throw em' out the window. Do it however you want.



In order to make this meme a bit easier when it comes to tagging out we have written up a short little form. If you could fill it out and stick it in your characters opening comment, along with the usual character name and series header, it would be helpful to everyone in order to find someone appropriate to tag! Plotting is more than encouraged!

James T. Kirk ★ Star Trek XI

[personal profile] thetisfortenacious 2012-12-17 12:44 am (UTC)(link)
Possible nightmares/preferences:
I. Abuse at his stepfather Frank's hands (physical, sexual or both).
II. The famine and resulting genocide on Tarsus IV.
III. Literally anything else.

Quick History:
Oh look, it's a link.

Quick Personality:
Kirk is equal parts passive and aggressive. He likes to fight. He's extremely intelligent, particularly with math and technology. His difficult past makes him somewhat emotionally distant, though he's highly sociable, as well as tactile and he flirts with everything that moves. He has a tendency to make rash decisions and fly headfirst into danger but he won't put his crew in a position he wouldn't put himself in.

Triggers/things you'd like to avoid:
I have a list of kinks here and if it isn't listed I probably don't want it done but I'm generally willing to discuss anything.

Chrome Dokuro | KHR! | OTA

[personal profile] kuromu_dokuro 2012-12-17 12:55 am (UTC)(link)
Possible nightmares/preferences:
•Anything involving abandonment
•Being mind-controlled
•Losing her internal organs
This man and his creepy-ass goal of molesting and/or killing her.

Quick History:
At 13 she was in a car accident and her mother said "Eh, whatever" and left her to die. She was saved by the illusion power of a convicted mass-murderer and served as his psychically linked avatar until he managed to earn freedom. Adopted into both his gang and a mafia family she fought for them. There was a mind-control incident where a ghost used her to get to her psychically linked partner. My canon is crack~ /o/

Quick Personality:
Quiet, secretive, and somewhat shy she holds everything inside. Quick to love people, slow to hate them, and yet everything good in her life stems from the aforementioned mass murderer so she's quite obviously not really a "good girl". She'll usually do the right thing, but when you get right down to it her morals are kind of wobbly.

Triggers/things you'd like to avoid: Molestation is fine, rape notsomuch. I am squicked by scat and urine. While pretty much everything in canon happened while she was 13, if you want to go the molestation route please say that she's dreaming she's at least 16.

Anita Blake || Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter

[personal profile] animator 2012-12-17 01:03 am (UTC)(link)
Possible nightmares/preferences:
✗ Being stuck in any situation that might trigger her extreme claustrophobia.
✗ Becoming a lycanthrope/zooanthrope of any kind.
✗ Becoming a vampire.
✗ Losing her free will, either through vampiric manipulation or other means. Control of any kind.
✗ Being chased by/trapped with any kind of flesh-eating zombie or flesh abomination.
✗ Being trapped anywhere with a lycanthrope.
✗ Being hunted by Edward/being on the wrong end of his gun for once.
✗ Assassination attempts.
✗ Drowning.
✗ Honestly, anything to do with any kind of monster.

Quick History:
Anita Blake was born with the innate ability to raise the dead. Once she graduated college, she pursued a career as an animator and therefore spends a lot of her time in cemeteries talking to dead people. Since animators have partial immunity to vampires, she also became a vampire hunter, and when vampires were named legal citizens, she was made the official Vampire Executioner for the tri-state area. As one can imagine, this has earned her a lot of enemies, despite that her job is primarily focused on upholding the law. She spends more of her time among monsters than she would like to admit, but that doesn't change the fact that they scare the crap out of her. Fear, however, will keep you alive.

Quick Personality:
Very stubborn, flippant, and resistant to authority. Defiant in most cases. Likes to let fear work with her rather than against her, but sometimes, that's just not possible. Tends to act on impulse or gut instinct. While she once considered herself one of the good guys, and still has an interest in upholding the law and protecting the innocent, she's spent so much time among monsters and become so involved in their culture that sometimes it's hard to go back to "normal." She can kill someone in defense of herself or others and sleep soundly.

Triggers/things you'd like to avoid: No smut, please. Implied or fade to black is fine. Otherwise, any of the above scenarios are good to go.

Possible nightmares/preferences:
• Trapped anywhere, particularly a close, confined space
• Stuck as a Dalek and unable to stop herself from killing all the things
• Stuck as a Dalek in general, actually
• In the Asylum tunnels being chased by Daleks
• Daleks are kind of a main feature, if you hadn't guessed
Quick History: Sexy girl genius turned Dalek after crashing on their asylum. Technically she's supposed to be dead, but default here is companion!Oswin AU.
Quick Personality: Adventurous, flirtatious, intelligence. Tends to use her cheer to cover things that aren't so cheery, but that's probably not going to work here.

Kain Highwind | Final Fantasy IV / Dissidia 012

[personal profile] dragoon_pride 2012-12-17 01:21 am (UTC)(link)
Possible nightmares/preferences:

Being mind controlled, having his willpower taken away, turned into a puppet, anything like this
Anything involving him being horribly injured or dying- especially dying
Any situation of helplessness for him, losing control in any way
Being a traitor/being punished for being a traitor
Enclosed spaces

Quick History: Kain is a dragoon of Baron who is controlled and forced to betray his allies a couple times. His love for Rosa and rivalry toward Cecil drives many of his actions. This theme of betrayal carries into his actions in 012. He struggles against his Dark side constantly.

Quick Personality: Prideful, loyal, obsessed with proving himself, overly serious, intense, very much an "end justifies the means" type... deep down more compassionate than his hard exterior suggests

Triggers/things you'd like to avoid: nope, just stick to the things suggested!

Vergil | Devil May Cry

[personal profile] sanctus 2012-12-17 03:21 am (UTC)(link)
Possible nightmares/preferences:
* Being human
* Being at the mercy of someone or something
* Being powerless
* Losing
* Something happening to his twin (if he didn't cause it)
Quick History:
The eldest twin son of the demon, Sparda and human woman, Eva. When Eva was killed when the boys were very young, it was assumed Vergil died that night, too. Obviously, he didn't, but he likes to keep where he was and what he was doing a mystery. What is known, however, is that he's delved very deep into his demonic side, and considers all humans weak.
Quick Personality:
Vergil is an asshole. He'll cripple Dante, his own brother, but just enough to do the things he's set his mind on, rather than enlist Dante's aid or giving things a once over to see if it's the right choice. Dante, really, is the only personal attachment he has, and even that is...Beyond odd, as he wants nothing to do with Dante, but manages to keep up with his brother's comings and goings quite well. He's insulting, sly, manipulative, and considers just about everyone beneath him mentally and physically.

[ nightmares were anything but a rare event for shouichi irie. in fact, he'd been plagued with them since childhood. even the tiniest stressor in his day could set him up for a night of anxiety and restlessness. though even with his advanced track record, there was always the one wild card: the lucid dream.

the dream you know you're a part of, but can't quite escape. and even though he's aware all of this is an anxiety-driven manifestation of his neuroses, it doesn't do much to help him control the events. no, as everything around him is crumbling, he's still running.
somehow, just fast enough.

there's no way he can turn around now, so he doesn't bother looking. forward and forward; faster and faster until he can see a vaguely familiar looking figure in the distance. ]

[The boy took quite a while to reach the bottom of the tower sometimes. He wasn't sure why, exactly, but this had been one of those times, and the Archangel had simply been bored enough waiting that he'd begun to drift off.

Turns out, funny things happen when you fall asleep while impaled on a consciousness orb.

It was the usual empty sleep for a while, before it happened - something was pouring through the orbs, a deluge of frantic information. Some part of his unconscious mind recognized the feeling - Dextera had died again, really? - but he had never truly seen it like this before, images and sound and memory slamming into him like some kind of twisted...

...dream. And there they were, standing in the chamber of the Absolute God. Some errant memory, one he'd seen as many times...]


Is this what it's like for you? Every time? I hoped you'd learn by now.

[He wasn't sure whether he was speaking or thinking, in this state, but he was sure Dextera could hear him.]

Warren Peace [Sky High-2005] (AU) Het.only please for ship stuff.

[personal profile] ex_warandpeace809 2012-12-17 08:01 am (UTC)(link)

*His father getting out of prison, and coming after him and his mother.
*Drowning
*Being stuck in a vacuum where he cannot escape.
*Watching his friends die in a way that he can't help them.
*Being stuck in ice.

Quick History:
*This Warren in Au due to being aged up.
*He is a Pyrokinetic, can control fire, and usually runs hot.
*His father is a super villain, and in jail. His mother is a super hero. He tends to look down on himself due to his father. Thinking he might turn out that way, and people expecting him to turn that way. He is a hero at heart though. He likes to help, and cares deeply about his friends.
*He has a tender, chewy inside, and a solid, crunchy outside. Approach with caution.
*He went to a super hero high school called Sky High, and was a loner. His best friends were a year or so behind him.
*He loves to read, to draw, to play guitar, to do hard labor, get his hands dirty. He also likes to work hard to earn his own way in life.
*After Sky High, he was put into a program that others who go into the superhero business must also complete. It trains you to do everything you'll ever need to save a person, or a city.
Quick Personality:
*He is stand offish, mean tempered, but he uses that because he cares a lot. It may take him awhile to get to that spot though. He has a solid, crunchy outside, but a soft and chewy inside. He likes to keep to himself, but if he counts you as his friend he will do anything he can for you.
Triggers/things you'd like to avoid:
*Nothing I can think of off the top of my head. Probably Non con, dub con, or serious violence (no guro) Violence is okay. Kicking his ass too. Death scenarios are all right as long as they aren't too explicit.

For all her wisdom, she did not know that Ganondorf was behind everything, pulling the strings that would have the bearers of Power, Wisdom and Courage meet once more in this timeline.


Quick Personality:
Zelda is soft spoken but firm with her words. Her features remain placid yet underneath that her mind continues to push on with limitless questions. She is benevolent but will hold her own in a fight.

tevintersdreadwolf: The way you trouble mine (Does it trouble your mind)

Fenris | Dragon Age 2

[personal profile] tevintersdreadwolf 2012-12-18 03:35 am (UTC)(link)
Possible nightmares/preferences:
-returning to Tevinter, whether willingly or not
-being taken back into slavery
-anything involving Danarius
-anything involving blood mages or magisters
-betrayed by Hawke (alternatively, forced to betray him/her against his will)
-twisted memories of his sister and/or mother

Quick History:
Former slave and bodyguard belonging to the Tevinter magister Danarius, Fenris lost most of his memories during the ritual that carved the lyrium tattoos into his skin, leaving him with no recollection of his family or life before servitude. He was left behind on the battlefield after a failed Tevinter skirmish with the Qunari and was taken in by local rebels. When his master came for him again, he was ordered to kill them. Despite the protection and friendship they offered him, he complied and slaughtered them all. Horrified by what he'd done, he fled from the Imperium and went south to Kirkwall. There, he tricked Hawke into dispatching the Tevinter hunters that had been searching for him and in return, offered his aid should Hawke have need. He was eventually able to kill his master and reconnect with his sister, who turned out to be a mage herself and had been promised an apprenticeship in exchange for turning him over to Danarius. Depending on the choice made in-game, he either kills her for it or lets her go, which results in the knowledge that he had competed willingly for the boon of his tattoos.

Quick Personality:
Outwardly grim and prickly, he has a deep-seated mistrust of mages and a hatred for slavers or anyone who takes advantage of the defenseless. He blames mages for what was done to him and tends to use the threat of blood mages and demons to justify his own anger and bigotry. He is slow to trust and gives more weight to actions rather than words, even his own. Under his guard however, is a fear of letting that go, having become so accustomed to it no matter how toxic it is. He has a low personal self image that he hides with physical bravado and privately wants to find a way to come to terms with his past and move on.

Alice Liddell • Alice: Madness Returns

[personal profile] fearsnothing 2012-12-18 08:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Possible nightmares/preferences:
⇒ Fire - catching fire, witnessing a fire, having to escape a fire; anything related to fire, especially if any faces from the past are somehow involved
⇒ Rutledge Asylum
⇒ Being trapped in the Queen's domain with no means to escape
⇒ The Jabberwock
⇒ Losing control

Quick History:
Alice is the solve survivor of a fire that put an end to her home and her family. A year after the accident she was taken from Littlemore Infirmary and placed in Rutledge Asylum where she would spend the next decade in catatonia, subjected to all sorts of procedures but also abuse. When she finally re-awakens in Wonderland, at the age of eighteen, she must defeat the Queen of Hearts for her sanity. A year after leaving the asylum, at the age of nineteen, Alice is still haunted by hallucinations and broken memories of her past; she returns to several locations in Wonderland, where she must fight a new enemy - the Dollmaker's Infernal Train and his Ruin - and discover the truth behind the accident that took her family from her.

Quick Personality:
Smart, quick-witted and cynical to a degree, Alice claims to fear nothing at the face of adversity, when in fact what she fears most is losing herself and her grip on reality. She's curious, impulsive and pragmatic - "when she's not on edge, she's only taking up space", or so the Cheshire Cat would say. Her London counterpart is frailer in comparison, though no less fierce and stubborn about her opinions when she has to be. Troubled by her family's death, Alice still suffers a great deal from childhood trauma and survivor's guilt, prompting her to display moments of vulnerability on occasion.
She is, all in all, a wild card in her actions. One would do well to not underestimate her.

Triggers/things you'd like to avoid:

Possible nightmares/preferences: losing his senses, such as eyesight or hearing being the main ones, smell and taste are secondary
loss of motor control
becoming Moriarty or in league with Moriarty
watching harm done to John or Mrs. Hudson most of all, though he'll likely express horror for Lestrade or Molly.
being rendered helpless, in any form.
Quick History: Had a relatively normal childhood, developed his lack of sympathy simply as a survival tactic, and he couldn't save everyone anyway, so why should he bother? This may be the direct result of his father leaving the family, and his mother dying (circumstances are up for discussion if you so choose.)
Quick Personality: Can be cold, calculated and apparently uncaring towards victims, however has a strong sense of justice and morality. He is protective of those he is close to, and will trust those he allows near.
Triggers/things you'd like to avoid: nothing really triggers mun at the moment, have at his worst nightmares manifested.
