Last Words

the death meme

(TRIGGER WARNING. This meme deals heavy with death and also possibly with strong violence or with suicide/depression. If you are not comfortable reading about that, please PLEASE do not proceed further.)

This is it. The final curtain. You're at the end of your life, and there's someone here you really, really need to say something to before you die.


1 - Accidental. Nobody meant for this to happen, but it doesn't matter now. Due to negligence, arrogance or just plain bad luck, you've become gravely ill or injured and are now in your last moments. This covers all kinds of accidental deaths--strangulation, drowning, car accidents, unintentional beheadings, whatever you can think of.

2 - Murder. Somebody really didn't like you. Enough to kill you, it seems. You're now dead by someone else's hand. (Maybe even the person replying to you?) As with accidental death, this covers all types of intentional, malicious murder, regardless of method--so poisoning, stabbing, shooting, etc., all work here. Same with all the below options: any possible variation you can think of on it will work!

3 - Suicide. There is no hope for you, and no way out. You've reached the absolute bottom pits of despair, and the only recourse you have is to take your own life. Someone shows up to stop you... but they're too late to help you now.

4 - Terminal illness. You have cancer, or tuberculosis, or cholera back when people got cholera. The doctors have done everything they could and it wasn't enough. The only thing to do now is give your loved ones the bad news.

5 - Starvation. So thirsty. So hungry. Maybe you've been traveling in the desert for hours, or maybe you're just really poor. Whatever the reason, it doesn't matter, because you're slowly wasting away until you're nothing but skin and bones.

6 - Death in battle. You've died a hero's death, and gone out in a blaze of glory. Or maybe you were a coward who got shot for deserting? Either way, you're now a casualty of war. Will you be honored with a parade or scorned as a traitor to your country?

7 - Natural causes. You've lived a long, happy life, and now your story is at an end. In a warm bed, surrounded by your family and friends, you peacefully drift off. Just make sure that you've made a will somewhere, or at least use your deathbed to set the record straight. Otherwise, who knows what kind of squabbles might errupt after you leave this world?


1 - A few minutes. You're fading fast and you don't have much, well, any time left. Better tell the person with you that you love -- or despise -- them with your last breath, because you'll never have the chance otherwise.

2 - A few hours. You haven't got much time left. Is there someone you still need to kill? To kiss? Better do it quick. (Note: last kisses not recommended for people dying of highly contagious illnesses.)

3 - A few days. The doctors have given you the news, and it's not very good. You've only got a couple days left to live. You should start trying to make peace with people and saying your final goodbyes with the days you have left.

4 - A few weeks. Take that vacation you've always wanted to go on but never had the chance to. Go do that thing you've never thought you'd be any good at. You've got only weeks left to live. Don't waste them.

5 - A few months. While you aren't quite on death's doorstep yet, your lifespan has still dwindled considerably from what you probably thought it would be. How are you going to spend your last few months on Earth? Making the world a better place and telling your family you love them? Or raising as much hell as possible?


1 - Lovers. This is your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, mistress, whatever you call them they were the person you wanted to spend your life with. Too bad you don't have much of a life to spend with them anymore.

2 - Siblings. Your beloved little or older sibling is just standing there, watching you slowly waste away before their eyes. Can you say anything to comfort them? Note that it doesn't necessarily have to be interpreted literally; adopted siblings and friends so close they might as well be siblings work too.

3 - Parent and child. Nothing is worse than a parent having to bury their child... except, maybe, a young child now alone in the world after losing their parent. As with the sibling prompt, this can be expanded to include parental figures and people who are LIKE a father/mother to you as well as actual biological parents.

4 - Co-workers, teammates or classmates. You were fighting for the same side. Or you worked together in the same office for years. Or they sat behind you in biology all semester. However you met, how do your react when you find out someone who used to be a fixture in your life is going to die?

5 - Friends. You're the best of friends! You go everywhere together, know all each other's secrets, and are never seen apart. At least, you didn't use to be. Now one of you is dying and the other one is left alone in the world. Or maybe you're dying together. Wait, is that better or worse?

6 - Bitter enemies. You hate, hate, HATE this person. In fact, maybe you killed them. Or they killed you. Or maybe nobody killed anybody and they're just bitter that Mother Nature got to you before they did. Regardless, they want to confront you one last time before you bite it, if only to rub your nose in your imminent demise and their ability to outlive you.


1. This is where I am changing it up. Feel free to choose how you are going to die, just be sure to list the closest matching categories in your subject bar, along with your character and their series.

If you are having trouble coming up with a prompt or situation, feel free to use the random number generator. Or if you rather just take a risk feel free

2. Responding characters then roll for the relationship between the two of you. Optionally responding characters can also share your cause of death/time left to live or roll for their own, but that's not required. A living character caring for (or horribly mutilating) a dying one is fine, too.

However, considering this is in our RP feel free to have your characters keep their CR, just make sure to inform the person which ever way you're going with it before responding!

3. Tell the person what you need to tell them before you bite it.

4. Have fun!



Other relationships -- such as murderer/victim, doctor/patient, etc. -- can be added in along with the randomized relationships at your whim if you feel the need, or even used to replace the relationships under that heading. Just, check with the other player first if you're going to do something extreme to their character! Or, in the case of canonmates, if you want to ignore the table and just go with your characters' canon relationship, you certainly can do that as well.

Also, if you would prefer to ignore the table entirely and just play out your own death scenario, feel free! This is a meme, so rules are pretty lax. If you like, you can also replace "death" with some other irreversible, negative scenario, such as being trapped in another dimension. The main point is that the characters conversing will never get the chance to talk to one another again, so you better make the last things you say to them count.

Immortal characters can be AU'd into non-immortals or otherwise made to fit the settings however their muns would desire. Also, if you get a death prompt and a time limit that don't make sense together you can either interpret the prompt as liberally as necessary to make it make sense OR you can simply roll the time left again until you get a time limit that makes more sense! :3

[Sharon sits on the edge of the bed, her hand resting on Peggy's. If her eyes are wet, it's because there's something in them, not because this is the woman she looked up to more than her own parents, not because this is the woman whose stories inspired her to become a SHIELD agent, and certainly not because the women she's loved and admired her entire life is now dying.]

[Sharon should be grateful. She certainly has a lot to be grateful for. Peggy has been able to live a full life, something not all spies get to do. And all Peggy's plans are in order; Paris had even said they were honored that Peggy wished to be buried there. And yet, some selfish part of her wants Peggy to keep going. She's lived this long, after all. Peggy is a trooper. Peggy is tough. Somehow, Sharon had suspected, despite common sense, despite knowledge to the contrary, that Peggy might beat death somehow.]

[But sitting on the bed, her hand resting gently over her aunt's significantly frailer hand, with its skin feeling like paper, she's realizing that not even the great Peggy Carter can fight off death forever.]

[She just wishes she didn't have something in her eye.]

[All things considered, Derek had been rather lucky thus far. As a surgeon that operated primarily on rare, dangerous diseases, it would normally be assumed that he would have lost more patients either before, during, or after an operation than he had. Nothing about his skill level, of course, it was more about the viruses themselves than how good a surgeon Derek was. And really, he was glad he didn't have much experience in this area. The more people he helped, the better, as far as he was concerned. He knew what it was like dealing with the aftermath of someone you were close to that had passed away from an illness, and it was hard. And while he did feel that because of that, he would be able to deal with it in a reassuring way (or as reassuring as you could be), he didn't want to have to do it.

Which is why this is especially difficult. He liked to think of Naomi as a friend, in addition to a colleague (albeit one that worked an ocean away, but details), and while he was glad that she had chosen to come to him, he wished the results were different. Not that it would make him stop trying to find a way to cure it somehow, of course, but she had to know the results in the first place, right?]

Hey, uh. How are you feeling? [Very smooth.]

[Her hand hovers over the gunshot wounds, the blood pooling on the stripes. Stars and stripes. Steve wouldn't want them bloody like this.]

[She reaches to his face, cupping his cheek. Sharon is terrible at comforting people. No one knows that like Steve. But she's always tried harder with him. Mostly. Never enough. But she's trying now, because she needs that comfort, too. Someone had tried to assassinate Steve, and he's still handcuffed because he'd been on his way to be tried for treason. There's just so much wrong with all of this.]

[ No. No, no, not like this. This wasn't supposed to happen. She was supposed to save Danny and find a way to get back to something simple again. Charlie wasn't supposed to be the person who died, she was supposed to be the person who managed to save people. She was supposed to take care of him. The failure is crushing.

So is the pain from the wound on her stomach. The knife is buried deep, and she's afraid to pull it out for fear of making the wound worse. Her mouth gaping, eyes wet with tears and wide with shock, she looks around. She's alone now. Why would someone kill like that? Recklessly, then run.

She stumbles back slowly and braces herself against a tree, gasping for air, trying to fill her lungs enough to cry out.

[He'd underestimated the Autobot. Wheeljack, as it had turned out, was a great deal more skilled than he'd originally given him credit for. Soundwave had been so sure that his time in the arena meant he was more than a match for the Wrecker, but the quickly draining, wide open energon line in his chest spoke otherwise. Somehow, he'd managed to dodge a direct attack to the spark... Not that it mattered though. All it really did was give him enough time to transform and fly out.

To return to the Nemesis and collapse in the hangar. It wasn't for lack of trying to get up, the spy was proud. The last thing he had ever wanted was to be seen at a moment of weakness, but his legs could no longer support him.

Energon leaked out from under Laserbeak, and from under the mask, pooling on the floor as he tried to force himself to stand.

[So the blaster fire that Starscream had so deftly dodged in the last scuffle had hit another target: one it shouldn't have. Soundwave in the air was far less maneuverable, and definitely far less shielded. While the drone plane was a master of the air, no one, not even he was perfect, and now faced fatal injuries. Starscream, feeling responsible, if only because Megatron would kill him, visited the medical bay every chance he got to check the spy's condition.

And when Knock Out gave the diagnosis...well, it pretty much sealed Starscream's own fate. He almost wished it was him on that bed, because then Megatron would have to fight death itself to kill him.

All that was left was to await for the spark to extinguish. For those optics to flicker out.]

[She's certain her heart has crept up from its usual placement to sit in her throat like a panicked, fluttering bird but the noise of the battle seems to have died down now and no one has come to say they've won. So she will have to go to them. She's brave enough, isn't she? She would have fought with them if anyone had considered her more than a liability. So she can go out, now, on her own.

Admittedly the quiver's worth of arrows shot into the tree which had been her makeshift shelter gives her some pause, but fear is soon replaced by the devastation of the place. There's nothing, no one left standing, and it's so quiet.

They can't all have left her. One of them wouldn't.]
