The Support Group Meme

The Support Group Meme

Per Wikipedia:

In a support group, members provide each other with various types of help, usually nonprofessional and nonmaterial, for a particular shared, usually burdensome, characteristic. The help may take the form of providing and evaluating relevant information, relating personal experiences, listening to and accepting others' experiences, providing sympathetic understanding and establishing social networks. A support group may also work to inform the public or engage in advocacy.

And now you know. And knowing's half the battle.

Post with a character.

Unlike most memes, you'd probably be better off by providing a general theme for people to respond to. You know, have your subject or post read "People who got turned into animals in their respective games" or "Time travelers and keeping the space/time continuum intact."

Respond to other people and support them through their trials and tribulations.

NOTE: While you're welcome to post whatever the hell you want, if you delve into triggery whatnot (i.e. abuse, suicide, things which tend to actually evoke real life support groups and therapy) please label your posts with a nice and blatant warning so someone who was looking for Time Travelers Anonymous doesn't accidentally stumble into your suicide thread instead.

[Originally from here. Thanks guys for the awesome meme.]
apackofone: (Oh really?)

(so my head canon Remus was always Norman Reedus...)

Gilderoy, your clothing alone would blind most right thinking beings.
acharmingsmile: (oh you)

(I can actually see that!)

[personal profile] acharmingsmile 2013-03-19 12:50 pm (UTC)(link)
And you look like you've not washed yours in over a decade, strangely grubby fan.

Would you like an autograph? [He's all smiles again!]
apackofone: (Headache)

[personal profile] apackofone 2013-03-19 10:57 pm (UTC)(link)
No, Gilderoy, I would not.

We went to school together? I was in the same year as James Potter and Severus Snape?
acharmingsmile: (just smile)

[personal profile] acharmingsmile 2013-03-19 11:39 pm (UTC)(link)
Ah yes... I remember. [More or less.] Are you sure you don't want an autograph, Femus?

You know I don't like to brag but these photographs turned out pretty spectacular!
apackofone: (Amused)

[personal profile] apackofone 2013-03-19 11:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Remus. [sigh] Remus Lupin. The werewolf?

Please stop trying to flirt with me. I've met and rejected more charming salamanders.
acharmingsmile: (that didn't go as planned)

[personal profile] acharmingsmile 2013-03-20 12:00 am (UTC)(link)
[Lockhart pales noticably as he recalls him. Remus Lupin. The werewolf.] ...and did that ever improve, Remus?

[He smiles and chuckles nervously.] Flirt with you? Don't be ridiculous, Remus! You'd get hair all over my best robes and why would I flirt with another wizard while I've got so many perfectly lovely witches fawning over me? [Ahem.]
apackofone: (Funny)

[personal profile] apackofone 2013-03-20 12:21 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, of course it did. I got much better and now I only transform when there's two full moons in one month. [Have a soft, patient smile, Gilderoy.]

Oh, Gilderoy, for all your blustering, I don't think you're know what to do with a free spirited witch or wizard if they got you into a bedroom.
acharmingsmile: (teehee)

[personal profile] acharmingsmile 2013-03-20 12:36 am (UTC)(link)
Marvelous! That can't be very often at all, can it? [He beams at Lupin, returning the smile with a very bright one of his own.] Two moons. How unusual!

[Gilderoy's slightly put off by the other male's bold question but he's not to be bested anytime soo.] Hah! I've yet to meet one who can match my prowess.
apackofone: (Wide eyed)

omg, this is so incredibly fun

[personal profile] apackofone 2013-03-20 12:40 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh, Gilderoy. If only you remembered just what sort of chaos this mild little werewolf was responsible for in his school days. Because that gleam is back in his eye.]

Oh really? Then your, prowess must be one of the better kept secrets, since I've never heard brag of it.
acharmingsmile: (vanity)

LOL I know XD

[personal profile] acharmingsmile 2013-03-20 12:48 am (UTC)(link)
[He'd remember it better if he'd actually care about remembering people who weren't himself but bits and pieces do come back to him.]

Ha ha! [With another gleaming smile, Lockhart /attempts/ to change the delicate subject.] You've not read my latest book then? Holiday with Hags? [Gilderoy himself finds that joke hilarious and extremely clever and he laughs heartily at it.]
apackofone: (Oh really?)

[personal profile] apackofone 2013-03-20 01:05 am (UTC)(link)
No, I haven't. I don't have money for food most of the time, books are a luxury I can't afford.

Why? Did you seduce them too?
acharmingsmile: (hello there)

[personal profile] acharmingsmile 2013-03-20 01:10 am (UTC)(link)
Say no more! [Graciously, Lockhart hands him a small pile of books; Holiday with Hags and Magical Me.] These are required reading for any wizard worth his wand, I'd say.

[Still chuckling nervously, he waves the very notion away.] A rather worrying thought, if you'd seen them. But how are you faring these days, Remus?
apackofone: (Thinking quietly)

[personal profile] apackofone 2013-03-20 01:17 am (UTC)(link)
[Remus looks at the books, shrugs and smiles. Beggars can't be choosers.] Thank you. [At the least, they'll be good for a laugh.]

I've dealt with hags. And how I fare? I'm a werewolf. I fare about as well as any orphaned werewolf who has survived their bite thirty years.
acharmingsmile: (teehee)

[personal profile] acharmingsmile 2013-03-20 01:22 am (UTC)(link)
[Gilderoy's pleased that he possibly gained another fan, one who'll buy his future books and he reaches up to fix his hair, tutting all the way.]

Oh, that can't be too pleasant... but at least you only turn into a werewolf whenever there's two moons? That can't be more than once a year! [He claps Remus on the back, smiling an amiable but incredibly vacant smile.]
apackofone: (Funny)

[personal profile] apackofone 2013-03-20 01:32 am (UTC)(link)
[It do isn't what he was aiming for, but Remus bursts out laughing.] Oh, you're always good for a laugh, Gilderoy.
acharmingsmile: (serious)

[personal profile] acharmingsmile 2013-03-20 01:38 am (UTC)(link)
...excuse me, Remus? A laugh?

I am showing that I care for your horrible and unsightly condition and you find it amusing? [He huffs, clearly not understanding what's so funny here.]
apackofone: (Close and focus)

[personal profile] apackofone 2013-03-20 01:44 am (UTC)(link)
[He claps Lockhart on the shoulder, keeping back his slightly inhuman strength.] Oh, yes, my unsightly condition. There is no cure for lycanthropy, it doesn't improve with time and if you'd passed Defence Against the Dark Arts you'd be well aware of that as it's part of the Fifth Year exam to study lycanthropy.

[He gives a sad smile.]
acharmingsmile: (just smile)

[personal profile] acharmingsmile 2013-03-20 01:51 am (UTC)(link)
[Gilderoy Lockhart cheated on all his tests, of course. But he should've known that all the same and he feels rather silly.]

But of course! I was only attempting to cheer you up, my dear old school chum. [...he doesn't recall much about the Marauders, let alone being chums, other than when they hexed his shampoo and turned his beautiful golden curls a bright pink.]
apackofone: (Close and focus)

[personal profile] apackofone 2013-03-20 02:37 am (UTC)(link)
[In fairness, that wasn't Remus. He would've used plain old hair dye, much more difficult to get out.]

A job would be more useful...
acharmingsmile: (oh you)

[personal profile] acharmingsmile 2013-03-20 01:10 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lockhart would've remembered that... that'd mean no free books for you, Lupin!]

Ah, I'm afraid I can't help you there. I defeat the creatures and write my marvelous books entirely by myself. [He looks so proud too.]
apackofone: (Attentive)

[personal profile] apackofone 2013-03-29 01:49 am (UTC)(link)
Oh yes, of course.

[He leans in again.] Now, tell me about that time you stayed with a werewolf pack?
acharmingsmile: (serious)

[personal profile] acharmingsmile 2013-03-29 02:21 am (UTC)(link)
I-I, well, that was rather eventful... but they accepted me as one of their own in less than an hour because I charmed them so easily. [He's flustered, just a little, he knows Lupin will see through his lie being a werewolf himself.]
apackofone: (Funny)

(sorry for the long break, rl happened)

[personal profile] apackofone 2013-03-29 02:27 am (UTC)(link)
[Remus smiles again and normally he works hard at being a mousy human, but there's something decidedly... wolfish to this one.]

What variant of the acceptance ceremony did they perform?
acharmingsmile: (just smile)

(Don't worry :D)

[personal profile] acharmingsmile 2013-03-29 02:30 am (UTC)(link)
[Lockhart's rather unsettled by that smile, altough he manages to mask most of it with an overly cheery one of his own.]

The one where they all howl at the sun, naturally! You really aught to know such a thing, being a... well.
apackofone: (Funny)

Re: (Don't worry :D)

[personal profile] apackofone 2013-03-29 08:52 am (UTC)(link)
Howl at the sun?! Indeed! Well, different parts of the country have different variant ceremonies, surely you learned that in your research...?

[Yes, this is the most fun Remus has had in a long time.]
