THE DAEMON MEME

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


Basic Daemon Facts )

How it works
:

- Design a daemon 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 daemons and let your daemons interact too.

My Hero Academia AU




In the world of My Hero Academia, Quirks are the norm. Sometimes it's a useful Quirk like enhanced strength or speed, generating flames, or growing fifty feet tall. Sometimes your only Quirk is that you have the head of a dog. But don't let that stop you from becoming chief of police! Live your life as a normal, albeit powered, citizen, OR you can enroll in the elite U.A. high school and learn to become a professional hero! Face down villains and natural disasters, and protect the people of your home city. Of course, some twenty percent of the population is born Quirkless. Those without Quirks will have to make do on their own merit.

Sandal Punk AU

Icarus flew.


There are many myths of the wonders of Greece, Rome, and Egypt. Seven wonders, and tales of labyrinths and clockworks. Long-lost treasures in mausoleums filled with ingenious traps. The inventions of Daedalus and Archimedes, of myth and history, of the architectural wonders of Rome, the lost marvels of Atlantis.
Sandal punk is a subgenre of science fiction that takes the scientific and technological wonders of the ancient world and expands upon them. As steampunk has its clockwork computers and airships, so sandal punk has the wings of Icarus and the giant robot colossus of Rhodes. Perhaps the gods are real—perhaps they’re merely technologically advanced aliens or superhumans, in a science fiction past-future.

Mostly because I'm surprised we've never had this kind of meme before. We love high school AUs. We love romance. Why not combine those into a glorious mix?

Your teen years are important, formatively speaking. You're trying to find out just where you belong and what kind of person you're going to be. This already daunting task is complicated by the soul-sucking demon known as high school. If you weren't having a hard time before coming here, you certainly are now.

Add into this mixture raging hormones, and baby, you've got a misery stew cooking. But it's not all bad! Sometimes high school crushes can be sweet, and the occasional high school relationship lasts.

So whether you're too cool or distracted for romance or always on to the next good looking stud, come on down and try to navigate the romantic labyrinth that is the halls of Bakerstreet High.

HOW TO PLAY
  • Comment with your character and preferences. Needless to say, aging down and AUing is welcomed and probably necessary. Have fun with it! Feel free to include a short blurb about your character's Bakerstreet High self. Are they popular? The class clown? A drifter? A band geek?
  • Comment to others.
  • Use the RNG. Or not.

The Night Circus

"The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night." - Erin Morgenstern

As you wander the grounds of Le Cirque des Rêves, black and white striped tents on all sides try to catch your attention. Which tent will you choose? Who will you meet in the tent? Or maybe you're a performer, ready to dazzle your audience as they walk in.

How does this meme work?
1 - Post a comment with your character's name and canon in subject.
2a - If you want to be a performer, add a tent number.
or
2b - If not, leave it blank.
3 - Tag others. Do NOT roll if they already have a number in their subject line. Roll (or choose) if they do not.

PS: This is an AU meme! Since this is an AU meme, when commenting, please consider leaving some idea of what roles you're interested in playing, what situations you're envisioning, and so forth and so on! I won't delete blank comments because I don't want that meme policing life, but high fantasy is a huge genre and helping prospective taggers narrow it down will speed things up. TV Tropes if you need some more ideas.

The Cyberpunk AU Meme 3.0 [OPEN BETA]
Welcome to the future. Please abandon all hopes and dreams after this point, for the very definition of the term cyberpunk is "high tech, low life". The idea behind cyberpunk comes from the thought that as technology advances, so broadens the gap between social status, where becoming middle class is an achievement and anyone wanting to become anything higher suffers from pipe dreams. This life is pain, where the only person you can really trust is yourself.


These are worlds defined by poverty or absolute control, where the net is your only escape from the troubles of the world. Cyborgs, meta-humans, AI, and corporations with undisputed power are what's being served out here. Do you have what it takes to survive?

To get started, you can create a scenario for yourself, or merely go to the Random Number Generator and choose a pre-made one for you and your partner, or you can even leave your comment blank and let respondents pick.

I thought what I'd do was... )

You get a superpower! And you get a superpower! Everyone gets a superpower!

So here's the deal. Your sadly power-less character now has a power. Have they always had it? Were they recently exposed to improbably power-granting radiation? Did they make a deal with a devil? Your choice! You decide what power they have and what they do with it (become a superhero? be a data entry drone with an incredibly awesome secret?)! The world is an oyster, and you own it, baby!


Common Power Options 

1. Telepathy: You can hear people's thoughts! Which, uh, good luck with that, hope no one around you has a song stuck in their head.

2. Teleportation: Here one second, gone the next! Have fun never needing to own a car or like walk anywhere you lucky bastard, you.

3. Super-strength: Never worry about stuck pickle jars again!

4. Flight: Air traffic control requests that you please please please be careful not to run into any planes, please.

5. Invisibility: See all the movies you could ever want, for free!

6. Shapeshifting: Okay but why would you ever be a human when you could be a tiger instead? BE A TIGER.

7. Super-Healing: You're going to be the most popular person at the ICU!

8. Elemental Manipulation: Fire, earth, water, whatever. You are their god now.

9. Invulnerability: Swim in fire! Eat rocks! Punch a train! These are all great ideas you should try right now immediately because nothing could possibly go wrong! You're INVULNERABLE, BABY.

10. Choose your own or ask RNGesus to give you something random from the Powerlisting Wiki.

DARKEST TIMELINE MEME


The darkest timeline is a phenomenon when there are multiple possibilities for a situation to turn out and progress forward. Each has a different outcome, but one of those possibilities. One of them is the darkest timeline. The timeline in which everything goes wrong and there's no turning back. The villain gets the weapon that will end the war instead of the heroes, you fuck up someone's food order and they turn out to be the health inspector, the cabin you picked has an axe murderer in it, you come back from a pizza run and the whole room is on fire and everyone has grown evil beards--wait, what?

In any case, explore those here: it may not be the end! Maybe you just have to live with this shit forever because there's no way out.

• Top level your character.
• Include any details you might think are relevant about how you want your timeline to go. Or don't. As always, we're not the cops.
• Reply to other people's top levels!

THE GUNDAM/MECHA MEME



Do you have a giant mecha? ARE you a giant mecha? Do you have some kind of mechanical, piloted device that could count as a mecha if looked at in the right lighting and you kinda squint? Is it actually a clone of a space-born abomination fused with the soul of a dead relative?

then this is the meme for you.


1. Training! You're learning the ropes or a seasoned pilot keeping your skills sharp: either way, you've chosen to engage in a friendly spar or a shooting competition in a combat simulator... or maybe one that isn't so friendly.

2. CHAR! Your eternal rival has appeared on the battlefield! Or maybe it's just a mecha whose design is so offensively ugly that you have to bring them down... either way, you have eyes for nobody else.

3. Did something go "clunk?" Maybe you should have listened to the mechanic before going out, because now your mecha is dangerously low on energy. Or ammo. Or its arms just fell off. Something is wrong and you'd better think fast.

4. Downtime! Time to take a trip to the bar! Or an arcade! Somewhere that you won't have to wear a skintight pilot suit, anyway.

5. Gundamjack! Suddenly you're on the ground and under attack--but wait, there are some mecha right over there just waiting for a pilot! Let's see how you do in something other than your souped-up custom red prototype.

6. Last stand. You're surrounded, the redshirts are gone, your flagship is starting to fall to bits, and the enemy is just getting started. It's all over--all you get to do now is decide how you'll end it.

7. But I'm not a pilot / combat unit! Too bad, because you're under attack and someone has to do SOMETHING about it. Maybe you've got the latest model weapon or mecha, maybe it's mass-produced garbage, but you'd better learn how to use it quick.

8. It was RIGHT. HERE. Good job losing your mecha / highly expensive new equipment. Better find it before your commander has your head on a platter.

9. COLONY DROP. That space station / meteor / giant flagship is falling into the planet's gravity well, just waiting to crush millions. DO SOMETHING.

10. Turncoat! Suddenly, you can't fight for these people anymore. They're too immoral or not immoral enough or someone has sprung the trap you have so carefully laid... it's time to switch sides.

11. Who needs a mecha? Not you. It's time to defend your home with wit, pluck, and a pair of excellent running shoes.

12. Aftermath. Every battle has casualties. Maybe you're a medic, a nurse, or just someone who got dragged into helping, or perhaps you're the patient. Either way, not everyone comes home, and now that the battle's over, there's a lot of cleaning up to do.

13. Victory screeeeeeeech! The fight is over, and you've defeated the Big Bad (if you yourself aren't the Big Bad). It's time to celebrate!

14. ??? Make up your own!

GOOD END MEME



Sometimes you want a fix-it AU. You want everyone to live, to be happy, to find love, so on and so forth. You want the bad guy to lose early, for victory and triumph. No one dies, some deus ex machina saves the world, everyone goes out for ice cream after the final battle, whatever. The moral of the story is, everyone gets a happy ending. Everyone. Slasher movie? Everyone survives the night and the axe murderer changes their ways because they got a puppy. War movie? Both sides decide it's not worth it and sign a peace treaty. So. Like. Have fun with your lives not sucking.

SWITCHING SIDES MEME


Say you're in a war. Whichever side you're on, you want out. Either your side is losing or your beliefs have changed or you're trying to get close to the people important so you can get rid of them and end everything, you're going to switch sides. Maybe you end up having to kill people who used to be your comrades, your friends. Maybe you're acting as a spy. Maybe you're acting as a double triple agent? Calm down there, buddy. Maybe you just want to run away entirely.

This doesn't only have to apply to wars, of course. Maybe your friends are arguing and you changed your mind about who you agree with. Maybe you're trying to decide what to have for dinner and originally you wanted pizza but now you want a burger and everyone is pissed at you. The point is, things have changed. You have changed. What are you going to do now?

WELCOME TO HOENN UNIVERSITY



A sprawling college campus located just beyond Lilycove City, Hoenn Regional University offers some of the best in education about Pokemon, on all sorts of subjects from competitive battle theory, history, theology, to all sorts of scientific disciplines. Trainers, students, professors and Pokemon all roam freely among the many buildings, allowing for all sorts of interesting events to occur. Of course, this being college... well, all of the standard concepts apply.

Let's see where your adventure in the Pokemon collegiate world will take you!

1. SILPH CO LABORATORY WINGS: The place for all of the scientifically-minded trainers attending HRU, Silph Co has generously funded a sizeable complex full of advanced laboratories and some of the most learned Poke-professors around. Just... watch out for stray Skitties and the like.

2. OAK LECTURE HALLS: Though normally just known as The Ball, due to the deliberate construction to look like a Pokeball from the top, this circular set of lecture halls can seat hundreds of students per class. Though considering how dry some of the lecturers can be, most likely half of them are asleep.

3. DELIBIRD CAFETERIA HALLS: Where trainers (and their Pokemon) get their grub. Fully stocked buffets for all types of diets, along with professional Poffin and Pokeblock chefs working around the clock to make sure that everything doesn't get devoured by a stray Snorlax by noon.

4. SEVII DORMITORY TOWERS: The 7 main apartment towers, mandatory living for Freshmen, though you'll see a mix of everybody from new arrivals to grad students milling about. No battling in the halls, please (unless your RA is "conveniently studying for finals".)

5. MACHAMP ATHLETIC COMPLEX: Do you want to get tough? Do your Pokemon want to get tough? Then you go to the MAC. Battles are condoned here, not only between Pokemon but also between trainers, as martial arts seems to have gotten pretty popular amongst the student body.

6. THE QUAD: Because every college has a Quad. The main grassy stretch you see in every promotional flier for Hoenn U, come and relax between classes (or trip across some unlucky student's blanket after you realize you're 10 minutes late for History of Gym Battling).

7. DOWNTOWN LILYCOVE: The nightlife is strong here! At night and on the weekends, the port town becomes almost overrun with college kids looking to relax after a strenuous week of studying... or whatever it is college kids do. Just watch out for drunken Pokemon staggering across the main streets after getting one too many Tipsy Poffins.

8. WILD CARD: Want to take your fun elsewhere? Make up your own scenario! College is supposed to be some of the best years of your life, right? Then what could be better than college with Pokemon?

This is certainly an AU MEME, meaning that any character from any canon can be attending Hoenn Regional University. Just be sure to give a quick blurb about who they are, what they're studying, their Pokemon team, etc. Whatever you feel is pertinent!

UPDATE: With the advent of Pokemon Go, Hoenn U has invited representatives from Team Valor, Team Instinct, and Team Mystic to spread some pride and competition throughout the campus. Wear your team colors with pride, students! Pokestops are available at all of the major landmarks on campus, there are impromptu battle arenas scattered in hidden areas, and somebody's rigged an online points system to link up with your phone Pokegear to track how each team is doing. Just make sure that team rivalry doesn't spill over into the classrooms (unless you know your professor is totally on Valor).

Now, go out there and get that Poke-diploma!

the merfolk meme

The ocean is a beautiful and mysterious place. Over 95 percent of it remains unexplored. So it isn't so unbelievable that things could exist in it's depths which the world believes to be myths. The most fascinating and well-known stories of things lurking in the ocean's undiscovered depths are the merfolk. Creatures with the upper body of a human and the tail of a fish. Stories of mermaids and mermen span the globe.

Are they real?

Well, that's for you to decide.

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN MEME


At some point in your life you're given a choice. It's a pivotal choice. You can change the entire course of your life with it. Life or death, glory or ruin, good or evil. Which will you choose? Hopefully it's the right decision.

This meme is for the concept of choice and your characters making decisions. Say there's a point in canon where they're given a choice and they take one. What would happen if they took the other? What would change? Would things go better or worse? Explore at your leisure. Alternatively, come up with a new choice to make. Which is more likely? Which is more exciting? Explore both in different threads if you want! No one can tell which is the right decision but you.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Age of Sail


Welcome to the high seas and the Caribbean, in the Golden Age of Sail—and Piracy! Hoist anchors and set sail, because there’s adventure—and treasure—on the horizon.


Piracy
A. Ship captain, of course, would you be found anywhere else? Command and the sea, those are your callings. Along with, of course, plunder.
B. Quartermaster, elected representative of the crew’s interests, and with power to veto the Captain’s decisions whenever the ship is not engaged in battle.
C. Crew. You’re in it for the plunder, and can’t be bothered with those pesky decisions. Unless, just maybe, you’ve got a mutiny in mind.
D. Cabin boy. Lowest in rank and newest on the ship, without any sailing experience of your own, but you’ll work your way up.
E. Stowaway. Whatever ship you’re on, whatever reason you have for running, you’d better hope you aren’t found.

The Law
F. Pirate-hunter. Maybe you’re working freelance, taking bounties where you find them, or maybe you are an officer of a royal navy, but either way, you’re tasked with bringing those lawless pirates to justice. There’s money in it, and glory for you.
G. Governor. You are the law, in your little corner of the Caribbean. Troops from the homeland, money and resources are yours, but anarchy is just one mistake away, and the pirates are always threatening your ships and those of your traders.
H. Honest sailor. You follow orders and don’t ask too many questions about them. Or the cargo.
I. Innocent Passenger. Honestly, you were just trying to get home, or to your new home in the new world. But now? Pirates.

Land-Lubbers
J. Innkeeper or Brothel Madam. When the pirates and sailors come into town, they’re going to need food, drink, and companionship. You’re here to provide that.
K. Shipwright. Ships and repairs, it’s all your business. You’re willing to serve any customer, and you don’t ask too many questions.

L. Wildcard! Who would your character be in the Golden Age of Sail?

Mix and match, pirates and pirate hunters, raid a ship or follow a map to treasure. Go get that horizon!

  • post with your character. congratulations, they're now a spy.
  • need inspiration? think kingsman, james bond, mission impossible, the bourne movies or any of these
  • pick a mission (assassination? gathering intel? going undercover?) or another situation (spies have to eat and drink and sleep, too, right? spies might have a family, spies might have downtime...)
  • tag around! others might be your partner, your target, a spy from another agency, a concerned family member, your boss or whatever else
