The 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.

He was walking home one day, passing by a bad part of town along the way. It wasn't his normal route, but there was a new grocery store opening up in town, and this was a quicker way to get to it. On each arm was a cloth bag full of different food items that he needed at home because he was out.

Walking home, he spotted a woman sitting on the ground. It looked like she had been injured recently. Being the good guy that he was, he raced over there and knelt down to see if she was all right.

"Hey, are you all right?"

Cissnei's night hadn't gone very well, mildly speaking. Things like this happened, but usually she had enough strength in her to get away. The people she works against are not usually prepared for a woman to be in this line of work, especially one pretty young in age, like her. These ones, however, were ready for her. And though they had eventually made a mistake, left her along long enough to pick a lock with what fingers she could still move left before she took to the air vents, getting the hell away from there.

She had thought she was far enough back in the alley to be concealed, but that seems to be her mistake as well- It was only lucky then, that the one who found her was more friend than foe.

"Nn..." A pained noise escapes her, stifled as best she could when the redhead notices, hand tightening against her arm again as she pointedly avoids looking at Ryou. "I'm don't need help, I'm fine."

The smell of blood probaply does not make her words very convincing.
whitewizardboy: (Not a Good Mood)

[personal profile] whitewizardboy 2012-10-16 02:21 am (UTC)(link)
The scent of blood was worrying him. Where was she hurt, especially if the smell was that strong...

"I don't think your definition of 'fine' matches with mine very well." Okay, joking time aside, he put down his groceries to free up his hands.

"Where are you hurt? Do you need to go to a hospital or anything?" He had his phone in his pocket. He could call an ambulance if need be.
crimsonguarddog: (055)

[personal profile] crimsonguarddog 2012-10-16 02:45 am (UTC)(link)
"No-" Immediately, she snaps at the the other. Fool, the hospital would be the first place they would look for her. But she can't fault a civilian for having that kind of thinking, of course, just herself for being in plain sight.

"No, not a hospital." Finally she looks up at him, and to say that she was roughed up would be a bit of an understatement. Her fingers dig into her arm and Cissnei winces again, wanting to, needing to get back to her group, but she could not compromise them, not with the targets so hot on her tail. Maybe she could throw them off a little, though...

"Just... inside. I know how to take care of most of these."
whitewizardboy: (He's my shadow self)

[personal profile] whitewizardboy 2012-10-16 02:55 am (UTC)(link)
It was against his better judgement. He should take her to a hospital, or the police, or any sort of authority figure, really. Every bone in his body was telling him to do just that.

But then, after everything that he had been through in his life, even taking care of his friend Jounochi after he had been in a fight or needed a quiet place to stay, he had went against his better judgement of taking his friend to a hospital unless he really needed it. And Jou had gotten into some nasty fights before...

He couldn't believe that he was doing this...

"...My apartment's not too far from here. I've got a first aid kit there." He pulled his bags over an arm all the way up to his shoulder.

"Can you walk?"
crimsonguarddog: (♪Not just broken hearted;)

[personal profile] crimsonguarddog 2012-10-16 03:18 am (UTC)(link)
This was a much better plan. She'd do her best to keep them off their trail, and get cleaned up a bit in the process. Cissnei looks up at him, a smile catching on the edges of her mouth, slowly moving to get up on one knee, then to stand.

"Yeah, I can. I might be a little slow, though."

She is surprised at this one, though, so willing so quickly to just... help out. Cissnei tries to keep a even pace, one not too slow, but she does lag a little bit compared to the other. "Hey, what is your name?"
whitewizardboy: (getting a hug from yadonushi)

[personal profile] whitewizardboy 2012-10-16 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
With one arm free, he does the best he can to help her stand up, more than willing to give her the free arm to lean against.

Well, she'd be a lot lighter than Jounouchi. That has to be some sort of consolation.

"Take it as easy as you want. I'm not in any big hurry." It was the weekend, after all. No classes until Monday for him.

"...Bakura Ryou. How about you?"

[personal profile] crimsonguarddog 2012-10-16 09:20 pm (UTC)(link)
She might even take him up on that as they get further along, leaning a little bit on the other as they make their way to his place. It feels pretty far, but she knows it is the injuries talking.

"Don't want to take up too much of your time." Or stay in one place long, that was never a good idea with these kinds of people.

"I'm Cissnei...thanks for the help." Who knows how long it would of taken her to get back up on her own if he hadn't come around. Cissnei can't worry about that now, however. "I won't stay too long, promise.
whitewizardboy: (Thinking with ice cream)

Late, late, late, late~ :(

"It's no big deal." If he couldn't take her to the authorities, then he was going to make sure that she was okay to the best of his albeit limited knowledge of medical procedure. Just pray that there isn't any internal damage or anything...

"You're hurt and you said that you didn't want to go to a hospital, so I guess it's my responsibility to make sure you're okay." Being a Good Samaritan and all that jazz.

"...How did you come about into this kind of state anyway?"
crimsonguarddog: (055)

[personal profile] crimsonguarddog 2012-10-21 06:04 pm (UTC)(link)
A good Samaritan indeed. Cissnei would be almost worried if he didn't seem so harmless, and well, leaning on him told her a lot as well. This particular person, she did not have much to worry about when it came to him, though that would not stop her from being wary.

"Bad night." She doesn't seem interested in giving him an explanation either, though, even dressed as someone you would hardly expect to find in such a state- dark suit, tie and all.
whitewizardboy: (getting a hug from yadonushi)

[personal profile] whitewizardboy 2012-10-26 03:21 am (UTC)(link)
He helped out as much as he could, making sure that she was walking upright at a slow pace towards his apartment. And even though he wanted to know more, especially with the way she was dressed...

It certainly couldn't be a boring story, that was for sure.

After a pretty much uneventful trip to the apartment complexes and a rather interest trip up the stairs, they finally made it to his apartment where he lead her inside, put the groceries on the kitchen floor, and went to find the first aid kit in the bathroom.

"Do you need anything else, like a glass of water or something to eat?"

Blue eyes dipped once again to his scotch for what had to be the hundredth time that night. It was always like this with the old guard, the businessmen from Gozaburo's generation. They couldn't do anything without sealing it with some alcohol, especially at a party where only the finest liquor was laid out in massive quantities. Pegasus must have already known he planned to make a few deals tonight. The man always did insist on making his life miserable.

At least he had chosen something that was sipped, unlike the idiots slumping around the room or gulping down shots. Kaiba finished his required drink, shook hands a final time, then headed out toward the main ballroom. A faint smirk played over his lips as he heard the lingering coos of the party's host echoing out down the hall. Of course Pegasus would skip the meetings in favor of mingling with the guests. Of course he would have had to leave Cissnei out there while he conducted his business.

She was certainly going to kill him later.

[personal profile] crimsonguarddog 2012-10-16 08:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Cissnei might not even wait until later to do that- Not too keen on social events like this one to start, and then having to entertain Pegasus on top of that... Well, at least the latter she was use to, and it wasn't hard to continue it. The last few hours had mostly been spent with Pegasus entertaining himself by dragging her around to meet people, the I2 president having taken a liking to the woman ever since their first meeting.

But it was getting on her nerves by now, and to catch sight of Seto slipping out was something akin to relief...That was, if he was there to extract her from Pegasus instead of laughing at her.

'I swear, if I have to listen to try to convince painting me one more time...' There is an edge of teeth to her smile, as her eyes cast over to catch Kaiba's own. Get her out of here before she sets him on fire, y/n?

[personal profile] shutupandduelme 2012-10-17 05:52 am (UTC)(link)
That look promised many deadly things, something Kaiba was half tempted to unleash on this gigantic waste of his time. Pegasus on his own would have been an excellent candidate to receive a blast of fire to the head. Unfortunately, he would never hear the end of it from Legal, and he wasn't particularly willing to pay anything to the head of I2 as damages. He had no doubt that Pegasus would survive just because it would annoy him. It seemed like the best he could do was extract Cissnei and try to leave a little early.

"All the important business is finally finished," Kaiba said sharply, drawing the attention of most of the people in the room. It was exactly what he wanted. "I suppose that means that you will actually go into your own conference room now."

"Pleasant as ever, Kaiba-boy," Pegasus replied, though not before pressing another glass of wine into Cissnei's hands. "Will you be joining us? I was about to invite Cissnei-dear to a tour of the-"

"I came for business, Pegasus, and that is exactly what I came in to get," Kaiba said bluntly. He strode through the crowd with his head high and eyes fixed on the older man, almost in a challenge. Eventually he ended up just in front of Cissnei, even pushing past her shoulder as he took the space. One dismissive glance at her was all he could spare to convey his meaning.
crimsonguarddog: (♪These heels they keep me boring)

[personal profile] crimsonguarddog 2012-10-18 01:59 am (UTC)(link)
It was a nice fantasy to have inside of her head, but Cissnei has learned after the first incident to be far more cautious (that 'strangled a man in another country' rumor was one she wasn't ever going to live down, was she?) than she had needed to back on Gaia. After all, now she really did have someone to be representing, not quite a name like ShinRa's anymore.

Cissnei likes this one much, much better.

For reasons like this exactly. Kaiba does not leave her to flounder, so perhaps she will ease up on him a little bit for that when they get alone. Her eyes turn toward the man just the same as everyone else, words already halfway out of her mouth to excuse herself even as Pegasus attempts to rope her back. "Duty calls." She throws a quirked smile at Pegasus as Kaiba comes forward, knowing far better than to promise him another time, because then it would probably actually happen. "No luck this time, Mister Crawford."

And indeed, Kaiba had called. Her eyes snap up to him as she retreats back and he takes her spot, lingering for a moment before setting the wine glass aside to make a call for the car. Just like him, Cissnei does not want to be here any longer than she has to- Besides Pegasus, she still isn't all that fond of dresses, even one so simple as a little black dress like she was wearing now.
shutupandduelme: (Working here!)

[personal profile] shutupandduelme 2012-10-18 05:03 am (UTC)(link)
There was a brief flash of frustration that crossed Pegasus' eyes as she walked away. It was a sure sign some plan of his was thwarted, and Kaiba was pleased to see it. Though Cissnei might not appreciate it...it would give him some leverage.

"I don't think this will take long. I just want to reinforce some of the things agreed upon during the meeting-" He started to say as he and Pegasus drifted out of easy hearing range.

In the meantime, Isono was pulling up with the limo at the front of the estate. He knew better than to go far whenever Pegasus was throwing a party. He could be called to leave at any time.
crimsonguarddog: (010)

[personal profile] crimsonguarddog 2012-10-18 11:44 pm (UTC)(link)
The frustration might make things difficult for her later, if she gets sent to wrangle something from him again. But for right now it was relief and a little bit of vindictive victory, both which show in her smile as she turns away from the two and exits the room, to gather any last papers that might of been left behind and make it to the car.

Finally, Cissnei can breath a sigh of relief when she makes it to the car, murmuring a quiet greeting to Isono and settling into the backseat, one leg crossed over the other as she waits for Kaiba to join them. It won't be long- His tolerance for Pegasus is much, much lower than her own, not to mention everyone else that had already been dealt with today.

In all honesty, she was ready to get away from it, but of course the were not going anywhere without the man of the hour.
shutupandduelme: (Arm cross of impatience)

[personal profile] shutupandduelme 2012-10-19 05:40 am (UTC)(link)
It didn't take long, of course. By the time Isono was offering use of the limo's mini-bar, Kaiba was already striding out the door, his face fixed in an unreadable mask. He didn't, however, bother even with the usual small talk with the people hanging about outside. It probably should have been expected that his face would darken after he got into the privacy of the car.

"He's going to paint us," the brunet growled once Isono had pulled away from the curb. "Next week."
crimsonguarddog: (053)

[personal profile] crimsonguarddog 2012-10-19 09:56 pm (UTC)(link)
The drink Cissnei is nursing is only water, not needing anything else with her kind of tolerance, after being with Pegasus and his love of wine for what seemed like hours. Cissnei sighs and looks up as Isono starts the car, signaling Kaiba nearing and oh, he doesn't look happy at all as soon as he gets inside, and it has Cissnei reaching for the maximum strength aspirin set to the side just for the occasion.

Oh course, then he has to go and say that. "What?!" Cissnei almost drops the bottle, but catches it again and pulls out three instead of two, before offering it over to the man, eyeing him, giving him almost a dirty look. "You can't be serious about this."

[personal profile] shutupandduelme 2012-10-20 05:18 am (UTC)(link)
Kaiba takes the pills without even looking at what they were or how many there were. On the one hand, it was a measure of how much he had allowed himself to trust her in these moments of vulnerability. On the other...well, it was another bad sign.

"Would I have mentioned such a thing if I wasn't?" The CEO remarked before tossing back his head and taking the pills dry. "We made progress with our supply side, but it would mean nothing if he was still charging that ridiculous licensing fee for the cards. A portrait was all he would accept."
crimsonguarddog: (082)

[personal profile] crimsonguarddog 2012-10-21 03:09 am (UTC)(link)
It was a little thing, but in the end, the little things were the ones that ended up being the most important. Cissnei takes two for herself and throws them back, trying not to show just how dismayed she is at this. She had been able to avoid it for a better part of two years, and now it looks like her luck had run out...

"Damn it." A groan, and she resists the urge to reach up and massage her temples. Cissnei isn't telling Kaiba no, however; She very well could, it was the most important thing (to her) in her contract, but she hasn't. The woman knows how important this is to him, and to the company as well. "I really can't stand him sometimes. Most of the time, actually."
shutupandduelme: (Srs businessman)

[personal profile] shutupandduelme 2012-10-21 05:23 am (UTC)(link)
"You say that as if I am supposed to be surprised," the brunet remarked. "No one can stand him. The only reason anyone bothers with him at all is because of his cards."

Kaiba leaned back against the seat slightly as his headache started to dissipate. His arms crossed tight over his chest.

"I don't give people second chances. Do you really think he would have been the first if I didn't need him?"
crimsonguarddog: (♪(Name; ame,ame-))

[personal profile] crimsonguarddog 2012-10-22 02:02 am (UTC)(link)
"I know, I know." She could always be doing other things than dealing with him, but Pegasus was sitting on something that Kaiba Corp needed. And he has quite the fortress to go with his hefty fee- knocking him out of it was something she was sure Kaiba would of done by now, if it were possible.

"It could of at least been something I could of denied later, much more preferable." Cissnei sighs, not resisting letting fingers come up and press against closed eyes. "We'll just have to get it over with as fast as we can."

The things she did for this man- painting us, after all, meant she was included no matter what.
shutupandduelme: (So tired of this shit)

[personal profile] shutupandduelme 2012-10-22 05:02 am (UTC)(link)
"The fool is stuck in the first century when his mind isn't lost in cartoons," Kaiba said dismissively. "I imagine we will be wasting an entire day."

It would be an entire day of taking direction from Pegasus and sitting in pose for who knows how long. Kaiba made a mental note to stock up on some strong painkillers. If Pegasus made him feel like this after only a short time and with the benefit of alcohol, he couldn't imagine how bad his headache would be after a painting session.

"Does he know about your...skill with fire?" He remarked coolly as an idea came to him.
