Rescue Me Meme

The Rescue Me Meme

'Cause, sometimes, you just can’t save yourself.

→ Post with your character’s name, canon, and any preferences in the subject line
→ Those tagging, go to RNG and roll for a number between one and ten.
→ Alternatively, just pick the choice you’re interested in most.

1. A Bad Date - You get a text, a phone call, or maybe you can just see the other person floundering on what clearly must be the worst date of their life. Time to step in and save the day.

2. Prison - Maybe they've been wrongly convicted, or maybe you're an accomplice. Either way, it's jailbreak. Maybe the guards will fall for the old 'wounded prisoner' technique.

3. Taken Hostage - They're being held at gunpoint, either for money or for fun. Maybe you can talk down their captors, or maybe you are a captor, secretly working to help them.

4. Abuse/Neglect - Your body is damaged, your suffering taken it's toll. You can't save yourself anymore. You're wounded, you're starving, maybe even dying. Someone, help.

5. Addiction - Just one more. Nothing bad will happen if you just get one more. Either way, you can't save yourself from this downward spiral. Someone else is going to have to help.

6. Yourself - One bad choice after another, your self-destructive tendencies are going to get the best of you unless someone steps in, quick, to save the day.

7. Climactic Situation - You're hovering over an active volcano, a pit of sharks, about to fall off a cliff. Whatever it is, you've only got precious seconds of life left.

8. Loneliness - You've been secluded, locked away, and the emptiness is overwhelming. You need company, or you might just drown.

9. Unwanted Social Function - A family reunion, your three o'clock board meeting, whatever it is, you desperately don't want to go. Hopefully your good buddy can come up with a distraction.

10. A Bad Romance - You're trapped in a relationship that's headed south, and you can't seem to get away from the other person. Looks like you need a helping hand, maybe a prince charming.

[Eliot gasps, closing his eyes. He hadn't dreamt that last job would go this bad. He'd been caught. What's worse, she hadn't just had him arrested. He'd even been relieved at first. He almost laughs at that thought. That should have told him something was wrong. There's something wrong with her and not in the affection sense in which he says it about Parker. How does no one know he's here?]

[Panem did this to people. They knew how to break every little bit of them however they could. Katniss got what she deserved because she was the Mockingjay, but the hoards of people in the cell were just people. People that felt the wrath of the President because he could do it.

When the rebels managed to break her free, she wouldn't let them just take her. Bruised and nearly broken, Katniss went to each cell to make sure every last person was freed.]

[Eliot barely looks up as he hears the door open. In fact, he barely reacts at all. He's not broken, not really. He already knows what that's like. He doesn't want to give her the satisfaction of seeing his fear.

Mentally, he braces himself for whatever she decides to give him this time. Food of some variety, perhaps? It's been several days. He doubts he'll like the price she'll make him pay for it. He always does. But it'd be better than starving to death.]

[He's just standing there, and she has to tilt his head. Why isn't he moving? She's letting him out.]

Come on. The rebels broke us out.

[Eliot's head snaps up at the unfamiliar voice. The face looking back at him is young and as lined with suffering as his own must be. He meets her eyes.]

You're not her.

[His voice is barely more than a whisper as he begins to move.]

The rebels?

[How long has he been here?]
ofarrowhead: (stuck)

[personal profile] ofarrowhead 2012-07-03 03:01 pm (UTC)(link)
Not who? [She questions. He must be drugged, or worse -- trackerjacked.]

Yeah, they broke us out. We need to leave.
retrieverchef: worried (distressed)

[personal profile] retrieverchef 2012-07-03 03:07 pm (UTC)(link)
That Capitol bitch. [He allows himself a shudder since she's not here to see it.] Can you help me up?

They broke us out. Great. But what rebels? And what do they want with us?
ofarrowhead: (need answers)

[Katniss moves to the man's side and bends low so he can put some of his weight on her.]

District 13. They've come for me.
retrieverchef: worried (Default)

[personal profile] retrieverchef 2012-07-03 03:14 pm (UTC)(link)
[Eliot presses his lips tightly together, unwilling to let any sounds of pain out. He leans heavily on her shoulder as they stand.]

District 13? But they were destroyed decades ago. And... Who are you? Why would they come for you? You're just a kid.
ofarrowhead: (suit up; (with cinna))

[personal profile] ofarrowhead 2012-07-03 03:18 pm (UTC)(link)
[She stands, taking him with her to get him on his feet.]

You don't recognize me? How long have you been here? [That was a dumb question.]

I am Katniss Everdeen, the Mockingjay and one of two victors from the 74th Annual Hunger Games. 13 wasn't destroyed. It was lie.
retrieverchef: worried (ponytail)

[personal profile] retrieverchef 2012-07-03 03:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[He shakes his head.]

I don't know. It was about a week before the Reaping.

[He frowns. One of two...?]

But there's only one victor. And you can't be a mockingjay. You're human.
ofarrowhead: (on fire)

[personal profile] ofarrowhead 2012-07-06 02:08 am (UTC)(link)
That's why I'm the Mockingjay. Because I caused a rebellion. [There's no pride in the way she says it though.]

You have to come now.

[He nods. Get going. Sure. It's not as if he wants to stay here.]

A rebellion. When? How? And when can I go home? I need to check on Willow and Kane.
ofarrowhead: (the rebellion)

[personal profile] ofarrowhead 2012-07-06 02:32 am (UTC)(link)
[She tries to help him along.]

I don't know. There's a war out there. Different districts rebelled because I showed that I wouldn't let the Capitol rule me. That was when District 13 got involved.

[He smiles as he reaches for the wall, trying to support a little more of his weight.]

Good for you. It's about time someone showed them up.

[Why did it take so many deaths to get there? Why couldn't this have happened while his brother was still alive?]

So what's been happening with this rebellion, then? How long has it been? What have I missed?
