the horror tropes meme

The night descends, and you find yourself alone. Everything about the situation is horror movie code for "you're dead". There might be one way out... one person you can rely on to work your way out of the situation.

Of course, they might just be the person who wants to kill you.

r u l e s ;
1. Post your character with their Name - Canon - Any preferences in the subject line.
2. (Optional)
Pick a scenario for your character, and set the scene!
3. Go around and tag other people.
4. Friend or foe? Will you be helping the person you've tagged, or trying to kill them?

s c e n a r i o s ;

1. abandoned area: Wherever you are, the place is rotting and dying in front of your eyes. Old steel rusts and cobwebs dangle from every surface. It smells like mould and dust, and it's so easy to believe there are ghosts and skeletons around every corner.

2. all hallows eve: A halloween party can be a fantastic evening of fun frights and too many drinks. Or it can be a disaster, where the horrors are far more authentic and the blood on your friends' costumes isn't from the costume shop.

3. always night: Why are you out in the dead of night? Don't you know that's when the boogeyman comes out? ... What do you mean it's midday... the sky couldn't be blacker.

4. the calls are coming from inside the house: If you're home, you can't be harmed, right? The alarm would have sounded if someone broke a window... So why are there footsteps and creepy breathing coming from the kitchen?

5. camp unsafe isn't safe anymore: So you decided to spend an innocent summer at camp... You should have chosen one with a less ominous name.

6. don't go in the woods: ... Seriously? Why would you go there?

7. hell hotel: Oh, no, I'm sure that run down hotel on a hill where there are rumours of disappearances is completely safe.

8.indian burial ground: Or any burial ground. Graveyards and their dead trees are the safest places to spend a cold, gloomy night.

9. new house new problems: So you've just moved into a lovely new house! Fantastic! But did they tell you about the murderer who just escaped from prison?

10. anything else: If there's something you really want to do -- kidnapping, torture, mad scientists in their laboratory -- use this option!

It had been hours since Shanoa followed Supergirl into the portal, rushing in without a second thought to rescue her. The horrors on the other side were an order above what she was used to, but nothing so far that she couldn't overcome. Wherever they were, the magic inscribed on her body still functioned and the monsters of that world were no match for her. The greater obstacle was traversing the land, which seemed to stretch on for eternity in maze-like valleys and tunnels. The sky was dark and filled with bright stars and lights that looked like red nebulas. There were canyons that seemed bottomless, and inhabiting every crack was something that made an attempt to devour her.

She could only hope that Supergirl was surviving just as well, and that they'd be returning together.

Exhaustion crept into Shanoa's limbs, each step eventually feeling heavier than the last. She let out a breath and collapsed into a corner at the bottom of another valley, letting her bare back rest against the cold stone. She stared up at the sky and thought to herself of how beautiful a night like this would be on earth. Shanoa filled her lungs with the cold, crisp air and pushed herself up. Dark purple wings that had the faintest of glows materialized out of her back and lifted Shanoa up into the sky. Not wanting initially to draw attention to herself, she only went up every so often to check her surroundings and try to spot Supergirl bulleting through the air. This search couldn't go on forever. Soon she was going to have to consider the trip backwards, to where she could feel out the connection to home and reopen the portal.

Hovering in the air, Shanoa spun around in slow circles. A dark angel taking surveillance over the night sky, before she decided on a new strategy. A portion of magic within her was allocated and she raised a hand up to the sky, launching a beam of lavender-colored light across the sky. She threw the other hand forward and sent out another one, then a third and then a fourth before she stopped.

If Supergirl were alive, and searching for a way home, she must have seen the beams of light. Brows furrowed and feeling tense, Shanoa kept in the air, waiting for anything to happen. As much as she hoped Supergirl saw the signal, she felt certain more monsters were going to be searching for the source of that light.

((I can give you a cryptozoologist with his own Family Legacy. Character Info is here (though it has spoilers for his canon in the History section). He'd be pretty interested in that family curse, too- he's used to lycanthropy as a rabies-like virus, studying it as an inhereted trait would be quite the oppurtunity.
Perhaps they could have a run-in while hunting something nasty?))
