The Rule 63 Meme




Rule 63, also known as a genderswap or a fem AU, is the idea that any character can have a counterpart of the opposite gender. In essence they are the same person, they have an (almost) identical personality, but are instead the opposite sex of their original canon character. This can effect them in subtle but interesting ways, and figuring out what changes, what's different, and what has stayed exactly the same is the key to the fun! 
While this is labeled as a Rule 63 meme, it's fine to bring it male versions of female characters. (as it seems as though rule 63 is defined as male to female swap) And don't be shy about tagging around, or hitting up a 63'd character even if yours is not. The idea is to have fun!

GO FORTH AND AU

mermaids & land dwellers
a possibly (au) mermaid ❝shipping❞ meme

Few fantastical creatures have captured the imaginations of those of us stuck in the mundane quite like mermaids. It's understandable: the ocean provides an endless canvas for us. Who knows what may live in those deep, seemingly endless depths? There's something intriguing about the mermaid, too, as a being that exists between two worlds. Beautiful human up top, dangerously alien down below, a mix between the comforting and the unknown. Such a combination is all very alluring, speaking perfectly of both the sense of freedom and adventure and and the impending doom offered by the high seas.

Because of the mystery and excitement provided by mermaids, people have been considering what the relationships between those who live on land and those who dwell in the sea would be like. For as long as there have been mer-tales, there have been stories of lucky or unlucky seafarers who earn the attention of mermaids. In some cautionary tales, merfolk are said to be little more than sirens who relish in driving sailors to their doom, luring them to the waters with gorgeous songs so that ships may be crashed, blood spilt, and flesh rend to fill the bellies of sea-demons. In other, more optimistic tales, there are lonely mermaids who fall in love with sailors, fishermen, and princes and will do anything to be with their objects of affections, even if it means turning to sea foam. Of course, earning a mermaid's love may not be better than becoming their prey; after all, in their ignorance of the children of earth, they may pull a person under the water and forget that air is a necessity for some.

Perhaps you are a human or other offspring of the land who has grown up with the tales of mermaids. You know that caution must be taken should you go on the ocean, lest you become nothing more than a meal. If you were in that situation, you would never fall for the merfolk's charms. However, that's so much easier said than done.

On the other hand, you could be a mermaid. Whether you are "good" or "bad" depends entirely on upbringing, just like with anyone else. Finally, you've come upon a land dweller. Will you be infatuated with them, look at them as a sweet morsel, or be more scared of them than they are of you?

WHAT IF THEY HAD LIVED? MEME


We're not going to have a ton of prompts today, folks. However, we are going to have this. Say your character or someone close to your character dies in canon. Perhaps they die young, perhaps they're a big damn hero, perhaps they're a slithery villain that SHOULD be dead. What would happen if they didn't? How would the world change? This is your place to explore that kind of AU! Did the death situation never happen? Did they perhaps escape by the skin of their teeth? Did something (or someone) save them? How does the bright and shining (or dark and ominous) future pan out for them?

• Top level your character. If you like, you can explain any world changes you might want made. If not, you can hash it out with your future partners.
• Reply to other's top levels!
• Please note before you open this meme that there are likely (almost sure) to be spoilers for media you haven't seen/read yet! Proceed at your own risk.
• Have fun!

Scheherazade
a harem shipping meme

Straight out of the Arabian Nights, or any variety of the spin-offs and spoofs since, in a beautiful and fantastical realm of magic and djinn. You may be the great ruler, prince, or sultana of the realm, or you may be the tribute, captive, or arranged marriage spouse brought before that ruler.

scenarios
1. Arranged Marriage - You’re both royals or nobles of some variety, but one of you has been sent far from home to be wedded to a stranger in a foreign land.
2. Ambition - You’re just one beauty in a harem of dozens — or hundreds— but you’re determined to stand out, to earn the exclusive attention of the ruler, and to take your place by their side as the ruler of this land.
3. Scheherazade - One night with the king (or queen). Perhaps your one-night spouse had their heart broken, like in the story. Perhaps they’re simply a monster,or they have other motives. They may kill you in the morning, unless you can convince them to delay by at least one more day.
4. Tribute - Perhaps your land was conquered, or perhaps you’ve been sent here to secure an alliance. Either way, this wasn’t your idea, and you aren’t particularly happy about it.
5. Within the Harem - Both characters are residents of the harem. You hardly see the ruler, and they don’t matter. What does matter is the friendship — or love — that you have found within the harem and, possibly, your plans for escape.
6. Outside the Harem - You’ve fallen in love with someone you shouldn’t: a guard, a servant, or someone outside the palace entirely. But in order to be with them, you’re going to have to break all the rules.
7. Arabian Nights - Wildcard scenario. Play any elements from the Arabian Nights that you please. Magic carpets, powerful djinn, curses and treasure!

The HOLY GRAIL WAR Meme




Seven Masters, magi of the present day. Seven Servants, heroes of days past.

One Holy Grail, granting whomever claims it a wish. Only one team of Master and Servant may claim it.
Who will it be?
For those unfamiliar with Fate/Stay Night or Fate/Zero, you can find a better explanation of the Holy Grail War here. (Note: The Holy Grail War in Fate/EXTRA functions in a dramatically different way, and one not followed for purposes of this meme.)



Instructions
1. Comment with your character. In the subject line, put that character's name, canon, and which role (Master, Servant, or either) you would like them to fulfill. Though not mandatory, it would be preferred that you give a brief summary of your character as they will (most likely) be AU'd into the setting. (NOTE: If your character can fill the role of Servant, I suggest you state which class(es) -- Saber, Lancer, Archer, Rider, Caster, Assassin, or Berserker -- they fall into.)
2. Reply to others' comments. Pick your character's role (and the other character's if they list "Either" as their preference), then use the RNG to pick a scenario that fits the two characters' roles.
3. Enjoy! Though there might be triggers, depending on how the prompts are interpreted.

Welcome to the Dollhouse

The Dollhouse. It's luxurious. It's beautiful. Enough so to remind any visitor of a spa: there are little ponds, arranged rocks, sliding doors that disguise massage facilities, gyms.

But the Dollhouse isn't a vacation spot. It's a twisted, high-brow brothel.

Inside, the Actives, blank, erased, and docile. Their handlers, charged with protecting the Dollhouse's assets. The programmers, who create whole new personalities to imprint on their blank slates.

And outside: the clients, ready to pay for people made to their exact specifications.

HOW IT WORKS:
1) Comment with your character and their canon in the subject line, and any preferences on roleplaying in the comment itself. (You can use this opportunity to select a role for your character.)
2) Comment around on other characters, select a role and perhaps use the RNG to select a situation!

CAMP GREEN LAKE AU MEME
Loosely based on the novel/movie adaptation Holes by Louis Sachar

you've got to go dig those holes
with broken hands and withered souls
emancipated from all you know


Welcome to Camp Green Lake, a juvenile imprisonment and disciplinary facility where we offer an alternative to a prison sentence and correction to our young inmates by way of hard labor. Our philosophy is very simple: Take a bad kid and make them dig holes all day in the hot sun, and it will turn them into a good kid. And if you happen to find anything interesting, well... better bring it to The Warden. Maybe you'll get the rest of the day off.


For the sake of keeping possibilities open, Camp Green Lake is now co-ed and, if you wish, open to adult inmates as well.

THE STARFLEET AU MEME



Who are you?
Pick a department -
1) Command & Control. Captains and command staff; admirals; pilots.
2) Medical & Science. Doctors, scientific specialists and analysts, including staff not in the chain of command.
3) Engineering & Security. Including all engineers, all stereotypical throwaway 'redshirts', and communications staff.

Pick a rank -
1) Crewman. You're an enlisted person. Whatever expertise you might have, you have to obey the officers around you in everything.
2) Chief. Enlisted you may be, but you've gained expertise and experience. You know what you're doing better than many of those officers do.
3) Cadet. You're in Starfleet Academy, you haven't even graduated yet. Just a little baby pre-officer.
4) Ensign. Freshly graduated, at the bottom of the officer heap.
5) Lieutenant (Junior Grade), Lieutenant. Finally gained some command of your own.
6) Lieutenant Commander, Commander. You're eligible to command a starship now.
7) Captain. You have a command of your own. Time for that responsibility to be on your shoulders.
8) Admiral. Command of multiple ships.

Other -
1) Federation citizen. Scientist or consultant? Diplomatic Corps?
2) Alien. Are you hostile? In need of rescue? Curious about this new encounter?
3) Enemy. Are you in battle with Starfleet? Across the negotiating table? Bringing it down from within?
4) Foreign VIP. A diplomat, or a planetary leader.
5) Mercenary/pirate/trader, in general unaligned.
6) Other!

What's happening?
Exploration -
1) Observing astronomical phenomenon. This will be fascinating! For science!
2) You've discovered a new alien race. Time for first contact.
3) Space-time anomalies. Something weird is happening with the ship…
4) Survival. You're stranded on a new planet/crash-landed. You must survive, either among the local culture or in the wilderness.
5) Other!

Fighting -
1) Space battle. It's your duty to meet the enemy. Could be the Borg, or the Dominion, or the Klingons.
2) Boarded! The ship's got hostiles on board. Time to fight compartment to compartment. Maybe they've taken the ship and it's time to take it back.
3) Covert operations. Going undercover, disguised, to find information. Maybe you're a spy in Starfleet itself.
4) Disaster. Systems are out, there's no communication, and you have to figure out how to get out of this mess with limited tools at hand.
5) Rescue. Someone's in danger. A space station running out of air? A planet in danger of exploding? Go rescue them!
6) Other!

Diplomacy & Politics -
1) Negotiations. Are you ending a war? Beginning trade relations? Is this a continuation of first contact?
2) Playing host. You have diplomats/kings/leaders on your ship, and you have to impress them.
3) Elections. Is it for President of the Federation? Are you supervising an election on another world?
4) Asylum. Someone has sought refuge on the starship. Why?
5) Other!

Routine -
1) Off-duty. Time for a good game, or dinner party, or some fun in the holosuite.
2) Normal shifts. It's a routine, by now. Do you joke on duty? Is it rigid and professional?
3) Mess Hall. Grabbing a meal.
4) Shore leave. Vacation time! Are you spending it with your crewmates or as far away as possible?
5) Other!

THIS IS NOT A COFFEE SHOP AU



Don't get me wrong, coffee shop aus are great! They're super cute and romantic. But they're not retail, not even close. RP is a great way to escape the things we hate about the real world, but sometimes... sometimes, it's cathartic to put our characters through our daily struggles. That's what this meme is for! Whatever their life was before, now they have to face their most challenging threat yet... a retail job.

It turns out it's not just rats and bugs that live in the walls and under the floors of old houses - there are whole families, societies even, living hidden away from prying human bean eyes. They make and gather the things they need, but sometimes...well, sometimes they need to borrow a few things from their unwitting bean hosts.

Post with your character's name and any preferences you have, including whether you prefer your pup to be a borrower or a bean (presumably if your character is a borrower, this is an AU where they've always been one - though you can always say they've been transformed, too). Feel free to either leave your initial comment blank or to put in a little text showing what sort of thread you have in mind. You can make up your own story, or pick (or have RNG pick for you) from the following scenarios:

1. Borrower Sighting: Now you've done it - you've let a bean see you. What are you going to do about it - and for that matter, what are they going to do about it?

2. Borrower Reunion: Hey, it's tough living spread out among bean houses. Sometimes borrowers need to come together, whether deliberately or by accident along their travels.

3. I'm Not Crazy: One (or both) of you is a bean who knows the truth - but no one believes them! Cue the search for proof!

4. Borrower City: Some places - bean shopping malls, for instance - are able to support lots and lots of borrowers, rather than the usual single family per bean house.

5. Animal Attack: The trouble with being so tiny is that even a rat can be a fearsome enemy.

6. Moving Day: You can't stay where you've been living, or you've chosen to move in with some other borrowers. Either way, moving day poses peculiar challenges to borrowers.

7. Life in the Great Outdoors: Forget depending on beans. You live wild and free, even if that means smelling manky and eating bugs.

8. Mix and match/make up your own.

The sun has set and the stars are aligned in just the right spots. Arcane and primordial power courses through your body as you feel the magic course through your being. Potions, elixers and ingerdiants are strewn about on the table in front of you. In the meantime your helpful familiar/apprentice/lovely assistant stands by at your beck and call, ready for action, research and maybe romace? All of this is the setup for your….

In the universe of the His Dark Materials trilogy (or the movie The Golden Compass), every person has a creature called a dæmon that accompanies them all their lives, and is emotionally and metaphysically a part of them. Dæmons are often described as sort of external souls (while the part of the personality in a human's body is the spirit).



Basic Dæmon Facts:

- They take the shape of animals
- They can talk, no matter what their shape
- Children's dæmons can change form at will; around puberty they 'settle' and become one animal permanently
- Neither the person or the dæmon chooses the final settled form, but it always reflects their personality (although not necessarily in obvious or simple ways)
- They are almost always the opposite sex as their human
- If a dæmon feels pain, so will their person, and vice versa
- Being physically apart from one's dæmon causes horrible emotional and physical pain
- Dæmons frequently talk to and touch each other, in ways that reflect or complement their persons' interactions, but dæmons talking to humans other than their own is considered strange, and touching humans not their own is extremely taboo; it generally occurs only between long-time lovers. Touching someone else's dæmon without permission is a terrible violation.

How it works:

Just design a dæmon for your muse and put as little or as much information as you like about them (shape, name, link to a picture or species wiki if you are so inclined) in a comment, with your muse's name and series in the subject. Check out other people's dæmons and let your dæmons interact too.

The HOLY GRAIL WAR Meme




Seven Masters, magi of the present day. Seven Servants, heroes of days past.

One Holy Grail, granting whomever claims it a wish. Only one team of Master and Servant may claim it.
Who will it be?
For those unfamiliar with Fate/Stay Night or Fate/Zero, you can find a better explanation of the Holy Grail War here. (Note: The Holy Grail War in Fate/EXTRA functions in a dramatically different way, and one not followed for purposes of this meme.)



Instructions
1. Comment with your character. In the subject line, put that character's name, canon, and which role (Master, Servant, or either) you would like them to fulfill. Though not mandatory, it would be preferred that you give a brief summary of your character as they will (most likely) be AU'd into the setting.

2. Reply to others' comments. Pick your character's role (and the other character's if they list "Either" as their preference), then use the RNG to pick a scenario that fits the two characters' roles.
3. Enjoy! Though there might be triggers, depending on how the prompts are interpreted.



TWO MASTERS



1. Battle. Who says that Servants get to have all the fun? After all, most Masters try to kill each other, too. Whatever the circumstances, the two of you are locked in a fight. Neither of you are willing to use your Command Spells just yet, so no Servants here. Just two magi duking it out.

2. Alliance. There's a bigger threat out there. Either one Servant is exceptionally powerful, or the situation has changed and the participants need to take action against it. One way or another, you're teamed up with one of your rivals for the Holy Grail. How long will this last before you try to stab each other in the back? Or, will something more develop?

3. Protection. Uh-oh! One of you has lost your Servant! Unfortunately, there's no way you'd get to the church safely on your own, so the other one will help you get there! Or maybe you don't trust the priest presiding over the Holy Grail War and are giving shelter to them yourself? Given their track record, no one would blame you.

4. Death. One or both of you lay dying. It might have been by the other's hand, or by someone else's entirely. How will you spend your last moments in the presence of one of your rivals?

5. You, Too? Surprise! You may have been friends before, but you've just discovered that you're both Masters! How will you handle this revelation?

6. Wild Card. Roll again, pick one of the previous options, or make one up!



MASTER AND SERVANT



1. Are You My Master? The summoning is complete. Whether intentional or not, catalyst or not, a magus has summoned a Servant. What kind of meeting was it? Was everything totally under control, or did a hitch occur? Or maybe it happened in the middle of a life-or-death situation!

2. Identity. Either the Servant has flat out told the Master their identity, or they unleashed their Noble Phantasm. Either way, the cat is out of the bag. How will the Master react, now that they know their Servant's name and legend? Will anything change between the two?

3. Battle Aftermath. A battle has just ended. Who participated? Are either of you hurt? Did the Master have to use a Command Spell? Any number of things could have happened here.

4. Discord. Uh-oh. It looks like the Master and the Servant don't get along. Here come the arguments! Don't do something stupid, like waste a Command Spell over a triviality...

5. Love. And then, there's the opposite. Sometimes Masters and Servants fall in love with each other. How will this affect things?

6. Wild Card. Roll again, pick one of the previous options, or make one up!



TWO SERVANTS



1. Battle. This is what usually happens when two Servants meet -- they duke it out. This probably says enough as it is.

2. Alliance. There's a bigger threat out there. Either one Servant is exceptionally powerful, or the situation has changed and the participants need to take action aginst it. One way or another, you're teamed up with one of your rivals for the Holy Grail. How long will this last before you try to stab each other in the back? Or, will something more develop?

3. The Grail Dialogues. Maybe you're not interested in fighting just yet. Maybe you just want to sit down and talk with the other Servant. Find out what they want, what makes them tick. Get some wine while you're at it -- nothing like good wine to go with good talk!

4. Death. One or both of you lay dying...again. It might have been by the other's hand, or by someone else's entirely. How will you spend your last moments in this War in the presence of one of your rivals?

5. Identity. Congratulations, you've just learned each other's identities! Will this change the situation, or will you press onward?

6. Wild Card. Roll again, pick one of the previous options, or make one up!

TO ZORK, WITH LOVE

TEXT BASED ADVENTURE MEME

"With their face" meme



The person that you love is far away. Gone. Dead. Out to the store for longer than you expected them to be. The person at your door looks just like that person. They sound just like them. They might even act a lot like them. But that might be your imagination. Be careful not to project someone else onto the person just because they look the same. The exact same, give or take a few imperfections.

Or, maybe you don't know. Maybe they came by with the intention of taking advantage of their similar appearance, just to get something out of you. How long will you be fooled? How well will they pretend? What will you do if you realize the truth?

If it comes down to it, no matter how much you try, do you even see them when you look at their face, or do you see a person who isn't there at all? Can you even admit it to yourself, if you don't?

Can you live with it, if you admit it?

(This is a meme for interacting with twins, characters with the same actor as another, characters who have an uncanny physical resemblance to each other, and alternate versions of characters. Their face should be close enough to be considered 'identical' if they're not the same 'person'. If they're an alternate, then their personality should be distinct enough from the original that a reasonable person would consider them entirely separate people. Tidus and Shuyin or Future Trunks and GT Trunks, not the two John Crichtons or two different Doctors. it's for people who look the same but aren't, not people who look different but are the same

Make up connections to identical faces if one doesn't already exist. Or, run with the alternate universe concept.)

Optional Prompts:

1: My replacement puppy - Your loved one is gone. The best way to move on is to fall in love again...with someone that looks exactly like the last one. Nothing could go wrong.

2: Stealth mode - Your loved one is gone. They know it. Do you know it? Did you expect them back already? Were they wearing that before? Do they seem odd? Surely not!

3: Stranger in my bed - Sex. Maybe they used their similar appearance to get in bed with you. Maybe you used their similar appearance to relive something you lost. Maybe neither of you intended it, but it's still what's happening. It's like having sex with a stranger again only...they're actually a stranger.

4: The face of my enemy - Loved one? Sorry, someone got deeply confused. You never loved the other version of them, you hated that person. And now this person looked just like that person. And kind of acts like them, too. Can you separate your feelings, or will you just punish them for things someone else did? Do you even care?

5: Betrayed by love - They used you. They manipulated you. They betrayed you in a way that your beloved never would have. Of course they did, because their face and their voice are nothing but cruel lies. Just like the things they'd said to you before. Are you angry? Hurt? Are you angry at them for their betrayal, or because they betrayed you with that face?

The Harvest Moon Meme!





Sometimes your character just needs a break, either from the frantic pace of their games, or from their chaotic canon lives. Lucky for them, they have a chance to relax and unwind out in the country, where there's plenty of fresh air, good food, and friendly company to be had. So push pause on those busy lives and spend some time in the world of Harvest Moon.

ROLES
1. The Busy Farmer - Classic. You have animals to take care of, crops to grow, people to make friends with, harvest sprites to ignore, and so many things. It's hard to keep track of it all, but somehow, you manage.
2. The Rival Farmer - You've been here long before the clever new upstart appeared. But it seems like they've got a natural talent for this stuff you never realized. Maybe you can ask them for advice, or challenge them for the rights to use a public field.
3. The Farming Specialist - Maybe you'd rather concentrate on just one area of farming that you love. Do you grow only vegetables? Orchards? Are you solely into animal husbandry? Your skills might be more limited, but they're sharp and focused and you're at the top of the list.
4. Shopkeeper - Whether you run one of the town markets or visit from afar to sell exotic wares, you're always up for a good bargain.
5. Restaurant - You are a restaurant. Whether you prepare the food, serve it, or both, hospitality is the name of the game, and you've got plenty to go around. Feed the poor starving farmers who can't afford to build their own kitchen yet.
6. The Harvest God/Goddess - Kindly and watchful, you make sure the farmers are getting all the help they need...so long as they keep up their offerings, after all.
7. Mayor - This town is yours, and you rule with an iron fist! Or maybe you just organize events and festivals and mediate town arguments. That works too.
8. Doctor - When farmers collapse in exhaustion after stupidly refusing to eat or sleep, you're the one who has to patch them up. Is it annoying? Maybe you love being there to take care of everyone.
9. The Visitor - Whether you wandered in with amnesia, washed up on shore, or just decided to stay at the inn and stick around, you're part of the town community now. You might also be secretly dateable.
10. The Kindly Veteran - You're here to teach the newbie farmers all the basics. You're also probably doomed to die as soon as winter rolls around.

EVENTS
1. Tutorial Time - Water the crops. Brush the cows. Feed the dogs. Harvest the babies. Put chickens in the beehives. ...Maybe you could use a little help.
2. Courtship - There's a special someone in town you've got your eye on. Bring them their favorite gifts and they'll have no choice but to like you! ...That IS their favorite gift, right? Because if it's a horror gift, you're doomed to die alone.
3. Competition - Who grows the best crops? Who's got the best sheep? Who can cook the most delicious Cheese Drink? Put your skills on display and impress EVERYONE.
4. Marriage - You're tying the knot, and everyone is invited to the wedding. Come wish the happy couple good luck because the wife is going to be pregnant in just 30 days and give them a gift.
5. Friendly Festival - Not all of the events are slated for farmers to show off at each other. There's the flower festival where people give floral gifts, the snow festival where everyone gathers together to build a giant snow castle, and of course eating buckwheat noodles in the town square to ring in the new year is always popular!
6. Sick Friends - Uh oh, you forgot to put the cow in last night and it got harassed by a wild dog. Now it's stressed out and unhappy! Grab someone to give you advice or sell you some medicine.
7. Typhoon/Blizzard - The storm outside is so rough, you don't dare venture outside unless there's an emergency. Better stay in, hopefully with some good company, and take it easy for just one day.
8. Fulfilling Requests - Sometimes people post job requests on the board. Maybe there's something you can help with. Maybe there's something YOU need help with. List a reward, and see if there are any takers.
9. Overdoing It - Did you forget to eat again? Or sleep? Oh, you! Now you've caught a cold, and you can't possibly get everything done in this condition. Either you need to see a doctor, or recruit some help from a friend until you feel better.
10. The Blue Feather - This is it! This is when you finally confess your feelings to the person you cherish most. Will they accept? Or did you just flash the feather to be a complete troll and anger someone who never wanted it?

There’s something weird in your neighborhood. Who you gonna call?



But New York isn’t the only place in the world facing severe ghost problems. It’s no surprise, then, that several ‘franchise’ businesses have opened across the globe...each paying royalty fees to the boys in the Big Apple, naturally. How does your character fit into this world? Are they a Ghostbuster, or a paying client? Or did your character die and wind up 'changed' as a result? Note your preferences in your top-levels. For an extra kick, make mention if you want to form a team of more than two characters.

Suggested/Random Roles

1. The Scientist
2. The Mechanic
3. The Cool Guy/Gal
4. Just Earning a Paycheck
5. The Receptionist
6. The Client
7. The Innocent Bystander
8. The Lawyer
9. The Restless Spirit
10. The Rookie

Random Scenarios

1. Forming a Partnership - One of you has the crazy idea of starting your own ghost hunting business. Whose house is getting mortgaged for this?
2. Setting Up Shop - The original Ghostbusters had a rundown fire station. But your own headquarters could wind up being anything. Does the pole still work? *immediately crashes through floor and emerges in China*
3. Recruiting - There are more spooks than you can handle! Time to put out a ‘help wanted’ ad. You might get the right person, but then again, you’re using Craigslist so. You know. Might get someone weirder than the ghosts you’re trying to bust.
4. First Bust - You’ve tested the equipment (RIGHT?) and now it’s time to bag your first spectre. Show those ghosts who’s boss! And then bill the client an exorbitant amount of money for your hard work.
5. Celebrating - You’ve just had your first success, or maybe it’s just the first night at HQ. Time to celebrate with takeout! Or maybe you just want a hot shower and a nap. Whatever suits your style, man.
6. Clients - One of you is an expert. The other has a swimming pool full of phantasms. Let’s work out a deal.
7. Complications - You ain’t afraid of no ghost. Except that last encounter shook you up pretty bad, so...you ain’t afraid of MOST ghosts. Maybe your buddy needs to pull you out, or you need to help your buddy. After all, this job is all about teamwork.
8. Whoops - The job was supposed to go without a hitch. But someone is getting slimed. Regroup and continue, or throw in the towel?
9. That’s a Big Twinkie - Busting ghosts? No problem. How about demigods? Ever tried to bust Cthulhu? Whatever the situation, you’re up against something you’re definitely not prepared to deal with. Suit up, the city’s counting on you, and there’s a fat paycheck to consider!
10. Close Encounters of the Friendly Kind - Some ghosts can be somewhat friendly and long for human contact, or perhaps they're having a tough time finding the eternal rest they need. Maybe the two of you can help each other out. #notallghosts

The Harvest Moon Meme!





Sometimes your character just needs a break, either from the frantic pace of their games, or from their chaotic canon lives.
