rain rain go away;

the rain meme

Ah, rain—the precipitation that the whole world has a love/hate affair with. It waters the garden for free and ruins baseball games. It cools you off in the summer and it causes more ice and sleet to appear in the winter. Sometimes it is lovely and falls at a decent pace for a few hours, other times, it blasts the whole eastern seaboard away.

Poems and songs have been written about it, people have danced in it, others have cursed its entire existence, and still more refuse to go out and drive in it.

Now it’s time to roll some dice and see what the weather will have in store for you today.


1. Comment with your character, series, preferences, etc in the subject.
2. Roll a number between 1-5 with the RGN for an intensity.
3. Roll 1-15 with the RGN for a situation.
4. Reply to other comments and play the scenario out!
5. Don’t catch a cold!


1. DRIZZLE ☂ It’s not too heavy or too light of a downpour, just enough to wash away stuff in the air, water the ground, and clean up the streets.

2. MONSOON ☂ It’s horrible and awful! Rain is coming down in buckets, no one can get anywhere, the wind is whipping everything about, and now the cable is out.

3. SHOWER ☂ Reminds you of early spring, doesn’t it? A nice shower to make everything all green and smell fresh again. Lovely.

4. FLOOD ☂ While rain is good, it can sometimes be bad. Grab a boat!

5. CATS & DOGS ☂ You’re lucky with this one. It’s not the worst storm in the world, but it’s still pretty heavy. Be careful when driving!


1. A DARK, STORMY NIGHT ☂ You know all those stories that start off with a stormy night before something goes wrong: a murder, an attack by ninjas, a crime. It is one of the best known clichés in the world, and you’re stuck in the middle of it.

2. HUMIDITY ☂ It’s that time of the year again when the humidity rises and the rain has two options: make it worse or make it go away. Good luck getting the latter.

3. GRAY RAIN OF DEPRESSION ☂ We all know this one. Stuck in the middle of no where, or right after an argument, or something that leads to angst, the rain decides to express someone’s feelings in a physical form, serious or over the top.

4. QUIET MORNING ☂ Nothing to do, nowhere to be… sometimes the rain is a welcomed addition to a quiet day. Gives you an excuse to stay in, curl up in a warm blanket and a book, maybe a loved one or a cup of hot chocolate. With sprinkles.

5. PUDDLES ☂ After it rains, what is the number one thing you have to do? Go put on some rubber boots and splash around of course!

6. SUDDEN STORM ☂ It might have been predicted, but sometimes storms just sweep in and do their thing with little to no warning. Hope you’re not outside.

7. THUNDER & LIGHTNING ☂ Loud, surprising, scary, ominous, comforting, fantastic to watch or listen to… some like thunder and lightning, others not so much. Of course, if this happens before a big confrontation, the universe is telling you something.

8. CAN’T GET WORSE ☂ You did not say that. You did not just say that. How many times does this need to be seen in movies and books before anyone learns?

9. STUCK ☂ No, no, no, no. This cannot be happening. What happened to the ten percent chance of rain? You forgot your umbrella and now you’re stuck in it!

10. RUINED PLANS ☂ You had all these wonderful plans to go outside, have some fun in the sunshine, do some errands, maybe a date… and the weather goes against them.

11. DANCING ☂ Sometimes rain is a cause for celebration, or you just feel like doing something spontaneous. Grab someone to join you and get wet!

12. RAIN BATTLE ☂ The most intense, important battles happen in the rain. Verbal spars, punching someone in the guts; it’s all dramatic and climatic. And no one slips.

13. DATE ☂ Aww, don’t let the weather ruin your date! It can be really romantic, being out in the rain, and it’s always fun to go with the flow.

14. A DAY INSIDE ☂ Sometimes, it’s just better to stay inside and enjoy something simple and easy like board games or catching up on TV shows, or maybe the bills.

15. WILD CARD ☂ Was there something I missed? Did you want to roll again or choose your own adventure? Go for it!

[It was just her lucky, really.

The rain had come suddenly, unexpectedly, and fiercely. The person she'd come to see hadn't even been home to answer her call, though the latter was as much of a relief as anything. Though their relationship was on the mend, Kyoko still hadn't settled on a way of dealing with Mami. It was a tricky thing, slow and clumsy and uncertain, with expectations and realizations and changes that were only becoming all the more apparent. Kyoko's still not sure how much she should involve herself with her.

She's glad for it, though. She had even been a little happy when luck had finally favored her and she bumped into Mami on her way out. It evaporated quickly as she was dragged inside and fussed over and come up with on the spot excuses about being in the area. She's currently sitting in front of the coffee table, drying her hair with a towel. She still feels completely drenched. It's a little nostalgic, reminding her of the old days when she used to visit almost every day. But it's different now, the scene seems somehow wrong. She's not sure what to do with it.]

I would've been fine, y'know.

[She settles for grumbling, seeming discontent. It's embarrassing to have somebody fuss over her this much.]

[Banded together like this, they could technically call themselves Overwatch, but unlike the glory days of Ana's past they were small, half-baked, and didn't always have the luxury of a safe place to stay at night. The old base in Gibraltr wasn't a bad choice, at least.

Ana cracks a window open and climbs onto a perch just outside, ignoring the storm soaking her cloak as she set her rifle's scope to night vision. She wanted to make a quick sweep of the area, just to be safe, but the rain and wind wasn't helping. Damn.

She sighs and glances through the window back inside, nodding toward the nearest person - who happens to be Satya. Water was already dripping over her hood, but she didn't care.]

This used to be a lot easier when this base had working motion sensors.

He often thinks that the trouble between him and Clara is that their temperaments are too similar: her feelings may be closer to the surface, but each likes to be heard and obeyed, and while he's sometimes willing to admit that he's wrong, it takes some convincing.

This means that their arguments are often catastrophic. He'd coolly turned his attention to his coffee and biscuits; she'd made a noise of extreme frustration, grabbed her coat, and slammed every slammable door between him and the exit of the building, leaving him alone with a mood that was considerably more miserable than he'd let on.

Today, London's grey winter drizzle exacerbates that mood. Clara has been gone for a while... not all afternoon, but long enough to cool off if she's going to cool off. He could look in on what she's doing, or call her, but he chooses not to -- the phone he keeps for her calls sits on the console next to him. That doesn't keep him from glancing at it every minute or two, nor does it help him concentrate on the work he keeps trying to do.

Finally, he sees in the corner of his screen that she's entered her passcode: that means she's returned to the building. Whether she'll come into his workroom or go directly to her study remains to be seen.

The thing about New York Stephen loves most is the life. Not just the people - those he loves in general and has mixed feelings about specifically - but really, Stephen loves humanity and respects it. And New York...oh New York has people. There's a beat, a pulse, and even in a crowd you can be anonymous, center stage, or anywhere in between. But there is also life, bits of plant life sprouting where you would never expect it, graffiti in daredevil places to say you existed, poems of love and hate, celebration and epitaphs scribbled and scrawled, the stores that had been a dozen different businesses in only a few years. It was all life.

Life he'd helped ensure still beat.

He liked to walked the city in his down time. Sometimes with other paranormals, sometimes alone. Today was alone. Smiling at nothing in particular, and occasionally splashing in a deep and tempting puddle. He caught one girl looking over and flashed her a bright smile.

Come on, it's fun.

gymshoe_runner: (Kate: You're a dick)

[personal profile] gymshoe_runner 2016-10-04 11:57 am (UTC)(link)
Kate's chest rose and fell as she huffed out a breath, eyes closes, lashes dark against her cheeks - at least what could be seen from under the brim of the over sized, floppy hat she had shoved her substantial amount of hair mostly into. Over sized sunglasses, useless in this weather, were perched on the hat. She rocked rhythmically to an internal beat, shoulders and the heel of one shoe bumping against the bricks. Her backpack was loosened, resting against her low back and butt, though the only part of the bright, multicolored fabric to be seen was what bloused around her slight frame as it impacted the building and the straps, which complimented, rather than clashed with the fuchsia shirt she wore. Her movements lifted the hem of her shirt, flashing brief glimpses of her stomach, which her low slung skirt didn't help, especially with her hands stuffed into too shallow pockets.

Her plans for the night were a wash - if you got close enough, you could see gooseflesh covered her. With nothing pressing her time, she'd decided to give up her game. Except she didn't have an umbrella and was trying to wait out the hard, brief downpours that punctuated the more gentle steady showers. It wasn't just about staying dry, she also couldn't run in heels or walk far, not with the pavements slick. She wasn't used to them anymore.

The rain had just gotten harder, when she heard footsteps approaching. It was too far to run for cover and not both get soaked and/or fall. Kate simply hoped she could pass herself off as a kit out after curfew.
