The Cyberpunk AU Meme 3.0 [OPEN BETA]


Welcome to the future. Please abandon all hopes and dreams after this point, for the very definition of the term cyberpunk is "high tech, low life". The idea behind cyberpunk comes from the thought that as technology advances, so broadens the gap between social status, where becoming middle class is an achievement and anyone wanting to become anything higher suffers from pipe dreams. This life is pain, where the only person you can really trust is yourself.


These are worlds defined by poverty or absolute control, where the net is your only escape from the troubles of the world. Cyborgs, meta-humans, AI, and corporations with undisputed power are what's being served out here. Do you have what it takes to survive?

To get started, you can create a scenario for yourself, or merely go to the Random Number Generator and choose a pre-made one for you and your partner, or you can even leave your comment blank and let respondents pick.

Mostly because I'm surprised we've never had this kind of meme before. We love high school AUs. We love romance. Why not combine those into a glorious mix?

Your teen years are important, formatively speaking. You're trying to find out just where you belong and what kind of person you're going to be. This already daunting task is complicated by the soul-sucking demon known as high school. If you weren't having a hard time before coming here, you certainly are now.

Add into this mixture raging hormones, and baby, you've got a misery stew cooking. But it's not all bad! Sometimes high school crushes can be sweet, and the occasional high school relationship lasts.

So whether you're too cool or distracted for romance or always on to the next good looking stud, come on down and try to navigate the romantic labyrinth that is the halls of Bakerstreet High.

HOW TO PLAY
  • Comment with your character and preferences. Needless to say, aging down and AUing is welcomed and probably necessary. Have fun with it! Feel free to include a short blurb about your character's Bakerstreet High self. Are they popular? The class clown? A drifter? A band geek?
  • Comment to others.
  • Use the RNG. Or not.

𝔬𝔫𝔠𝔢, further back in years than anyone alive could remember, there is a land that even time has forgotten, filled to the brim with magic and mystery both good and ill. This is where you make your home. Who you are in this kingdom - or many kingdoms - is as varied as the blades of grass that spread over this lush terrain. You could be a petulant princess, a delving dwarf, a highway man with more than a few secrets, a devoted knight, a mage of ancient spellcraft, or even an ageless elf. No matter your station, though, one thing is for certain: whatever life you lead, it's about to get a great deal more exciting. There is a war brewing, somehow, somewhere, and the peace of your homelands is at stake. You are the only one who can set things right and go on a quest to save everyone.

Still, what is an adventure without an adventure of the heart? You are not alone, and you'll find that trying times can forge ironclad emotions. Of course, you'll find that the path of love is no easier here than anywhere else, be the person you admire an arranged fiancé you're not too fond of at first, a forbidden object of desire, a traveling companion, an enemy, a lifelong friend, an ally...or another species from you entirely. Yet, in any case, this is no time for romance, is it? Only moments can be stolen, and you must set aside your feelings for the greater good.

In this time, in this place, will you get your happy ending, or will this story prove to be a much darker fantasy?

The FANTASY TAVERN meme


The center of the town's social life, a place to drown your troubles, and a place for wandering adventurers to start a thousand quests with a thousand shifty clients. It could be in the middle of a sprawling metropolis, or the only watering hole in a one horse town, or even just a solitary rest stop with no other signs of civilization for miles. Wherever you are, get yourself in out of the cold and grab a pint of ale!

Some prompts!
1: Brawling - That guy over there just said something about your mother. Break a tankard over his head! Five minute from now, everyone will be too busy punching each other's teeth out to even remember who threw the first punch.
2: Flirting - After a pint or two, suddenly the prospect of talking to that cute one over there isn't quite so daunting. Time to make your move!
3: Plotting - You're here, but you'd rather not advertise the fact. Find a shadowy corner to lurk in and conduct your almost certainly illegal business in private.
4: Gambling - The dice are HOT tonight. 5 gold pieces on the one eyed dwarf! Keep an eye on that halfling though, I think he's playing with loaded dice.
5: Hiring - You're an adventurer, and some client wants to get you and your friends to perform some feat of heroism in exchange for lots of money. About half of all D&D campaigns start here.
6: Resting - Maybe you've been working all day, maybe you just came in out of a blizzard or torrential downpour. Either way the tavern is warm and smells like food, and all you want to do is just sit down somewhere and not move very much fo a while.
7: Drinking - Look, you're not hear for anything complicated. You just want to drink until you can't walk straight and pass out in a stable somewhere.
8: Wildcard - I'm sure there's lots of other stuff you can do here that I didn't think of.

 -      The Star Trek AU Meme      -

You are now a native of the Star Trek universe and bound to its laws. Let's get to work!

Pick your Era!
ENT (Enterprise), AOS (The new movies), Discovery, OS (Original series), TNG (The Next Generation), DS9 (Deep Space Nine), or VOY (Voyager).

Choose Your Adventure! (Roll 1 to 13!)
1. Away Mission!
You've just beamed down to an unexplored planet. Is it inhabited? Is it habitable? Just be sure not to break the Prime Directive
 
2. First Contact!
You are about to make the first, official contact with an alien civilization. Whether you are seeking them out or they are seeking you out, try to make a good impression.
 
3. Battle Stations!
All hands to battle stations! Shields are at full power and weapon systems are prepared for combat.
 
4. Red Alert!
Something has gone wrong! It is an all out emergency but what is it? Has something happened in engineering to cause radiation to flood the ship? Are you being boarded? Either way, hope you survive the experience!
 
5. Shore Leave!
Exactly like it says on the tin. Maybe you're going to Risa. It's time to settle down with a nice drink and relax. If you're alone, try picking up Horga'hn.
 
6. Holodeck!
You have some free time. All of time. All of space. All of everything. What's your program of choice?
 
7. Lost in space!
Something terrible has happened. Maybe you're in a shuttle that's lost most of its power and now you're adrift. Maybe said shuttle crashed landed on an unknown planet. Whatever it was, you now find yourself lot. Let's hope you know how to send out an intergalactic SOS!
 
8. You Do Need an Education!
You've just enrolled in the Starfleet Academy. Located in San Francisco, this educational facility preps all that have been accepted. It's a lot of work. Study. Study. Study. However, that doesn't mean there isn't time for the occasional hijinx.
 
9. Stations in Space!
It is a station in space. Space is all around. Maybe you're a resident or it is a temporary point until something better comes your way. Maybe you live on board a vessel that is about to dock. Maybe it'll be a nice change of pace.
 
10. Wild Card!
Pick whichever option you like best. I bet you thought this would be at the end. Well, it's not.
 
11. Tribbletastic!
The terrific thing about tribbles is that tribbles are terrific things. Their insides are made of stuff, their bottoms are made of the fluff. But the most terrific thing about tribbles is that tribbles are everywhere. It would be a tribble shame if they got into any important systems.

12. Q-who?
You're a member of a nearly omnipotent, immortal race of beings who have mastered the ability of time-travel and transformation. Maybe you're one of the 'almost respectable' ones. Maybe you're a trouble-maker. Either way, you can do whatever you want! What's the worst that could happen?
 
13. SmörgåsBORG.
They are the Borg. Resistance is futile. Either you're facing a boarding party or you and your crew accidentally ran into them. Maybe you'll be assimilated and need to be rescued. They're a bit like zombies, only they don't want to eat you. They just want to assimilate you and add your distinct uniqueness to themselves.
 
 
14. Mirror mirror out in space...
Is there anyone in this dimension who isn't a basket case? It's call the Mirror Universe as people and places seem to be almost complete opposites of their main universe counterpart. Basically, the humans ganked the Vulcans when they made first contact. It's survival of the fittest set in space!

Have you ever wanted to be a Superhero? They are idolized, looked upon as Champions of Truth and Justice. That’s the sort of hero you can be, one that always does what is right, no matter what. Pummeling baddies when they're threatening the weak, foiling the latest of a Villain’s dastardly plans to take over the world or destroy the city. It can be satisfying to end their reign of terror and put them behind bars.

Or maybe you aren’t like the Typical Hero. Maybe you don’t completely embody the traits that one might except. You could met out justice by happily breaking bones. Your type of justice can be dealt from the barrel of a gun. You might not be asked by children to sign an autograph, but you are doing your part!

When you get right down to it, it doesn’t matter what sort of superhero you are, because there is room for all types! So get there and dedicate your life to fighting crime and the forces of evil! Unless you much prefer to ally yourself with those very forces instead..




How To Play
  • Comment below with your character. Put in their Name | Series
  • Include anything else that you think may be important.
  • AU your character as much as you like or where you feel it is necessary.
  • Feel free to have your character be a Villain or Anti-Hero instead of a Superhero.
  • RNG or pick from any of the Prompts below.
  • You can even RNG a power if you like!

  • tag around! others might be your partner, your target, a spy from another agency, a concerned family member, your boss or whatever else

The All-Purpose JamJar Meme

For that authentic Jamjar experience without the pesky commitment. Roll or pick from a setting and a prompt below! Drum up some assumed CR with strangers! Jamjar settings are officially the best when you want to do a cross-canon tag-out but just can't be assed to think of a way to fit your character in another one's canon.



I - SETTING
  • 1. Horror: Your characters are taken from their own worlds and thrown into a terrifying situation! Things are creepy, resources are scarce, and ensuring your own survival is paramount.
  • 2. Sex Game: For whatever contrived and nonsensical reason, your characters are forced into a world where they gotta bone. Aside from smutstuff, you have the opportunity to play out how very awkward it is to navigate these agreements and encounters before and after. Lasting bonds can form from something you didn't expect! But so can eternal regret.
  • 3. Slice of Life: Characters are forced to live together in familial units. They have an opportunity here -- in spite of being stuck -- to relax and slow down and do some fun, ordinary things. Picnics, dates, school, etc.
  • 4. Fantasy: Characters are forced into guilds and roles, given weapons and are made to utilize their powers in coordinated units to complete missions.
  • 5. Scifi: Characters are thrust on to the frontier of spacial colonization! Characters on a spaceship! Characters being drafted into an Imperial Earth Army to fight/conquer foreign entities! Characters being in a world where they are assessed, identified, tracked and policed by artificial intelligence! And so on!
  • 6. Reincarnation/ New Identity: Your character has been reborn at this game, or given a new identity. Work out their karma or help them come to terms with having to live a new life.
  • 7. Asylum/Prison/Institutionalized Identity: Characters are locked up and put under heavy surveillance. Slowly they are institutionalized and disintegrated from ordinary social rules of engagement. They could be told that they've been identified as mentally dysfunctional, or they could be in prison! Are they pleading their innocence, or do they know they're guilty as fuck back in their world?
  • 8. Assignment-Based/Mercenary/Survival: Characters have to put their skills to good use as drafted mercenaries. Help your captors assassinate, spy, sabotage, infiltrate, steal, and terrorize for points that will lead up to your freedom or the freedom of others.
  • 9. Your Choice!: Do whatever!


II - SITUATION
  • 1. First Impressions: You never forget your first impression of someone. Unless it was entirely forgettable.
  • 2. Oh Hey Again: I kind of know you!!!! Hi!!! I hate this place but love familiarity hi!!!
  • 3. Event: SOMETHING IS HAPPENING and your characters have either run into each other or sought each other out to stick together during it!
  • 4. Living Quarters: Surprise, your characters are in the same house! Or room! Or building! Either way you have to share space and facilities with this person. Enjoy!
  • 5. Mystery: Who Did It? Why Are We Here? Characters are disappearing, people are dying, whatever is happening it is FISHY!
  • 6. Canon Update/Respawn/"But we know each other, I swear!": One character comes (back) to a game and does not remember previous CR. A relationship or friend or even hateship is forgotten. How will this be dealt with?
  • 7. Begrudgingly Working Together: You are so fucking annoying but I guess we have to fight Monster of the Day Together/Get Unstuck-UnLost Together/Find Our Way Back/Help Each Other Out.
  • 8. Is This a Date: Gee, you guys sure are doing a lot of things that people on dates do and you're having a lot of fun [sweats]...
  • 9. Violence: Characters beat the shit out of each other or help each other out of a gory situation with terrible traumatic injuries or something!
  • 10. One-Sided(?) Crush: How do you get their attention? Or, alternatively, how do you ignore that this person obviously is crushing on you and it's totally awkward
  • 11. Protecting/Saving: Your character's chance to be a hero or a damsel!
  • 12. Network Post: Mandatory bs.
  • 13. Inbox: Hey, can I talk to you for a second? In private?
  • 14. Your Choice!: Do whatever!

THE DAEMON MEME

In the universe of the His Dark Materials trilogy (or the movie The Golden Compass), every person has a creature called a daemon that accompanies them all their lives, and is emotionally and metaphysically a part of them. Daemons are often described as sort of external souls (while the part of the personality in a human's body is the spirit).


Basic Daemon Facts )

How it works
:

- Design a daemon for your muse and put as little or as much information as you like about them (shape, name, link to a picture or species wiki if you are so inclined) in a comment, with your muse's name and series in the subject.
- Check out other people's daemons and let your daemons interact too.

My Hero Academia AU




In the world of My Hero Academia, Quirks are the norm. Sometimes it's a useful Quirk like enhanced strength or speed, generating flames, or growing fifty feet tall. Sometimes your only Quirk is that you have the head of a dog. But don't let that stop you from becoming chief of police! Live your life as a normal, albeit powered, citizen, OR you can enroll in the elite U.A. high school and learn to become a professional hero! Face down villains and natural disasters, and protect the people of your home city. Of course, some twenty percent of the population is born Quirkless. Those without Quirks will have to make do on their own merit.

Sandal Punk AU

Icarus flew.


There are many myths of the wonders of Greece, Rome, and Egypt. Seven wonders, and tales of labyrinths and clockworks. Long-lost treasures in mausoleums filled with ingenious traps. The inventions of Daedalus and Archimedes, of myth and history, of the architectural wonders of Rome, the lost marvels of Atlantis.
Sandal punk is a subgenre of science fiction that takes the scientific and technological wonders of the ancient world and expands upon them. As steampunk has its clockwork computers and airships, so sandal punk has the wings of Icarus and the giant robot colossus of Rhodes. Perhaps the gods are real—perhaps they’re merely technologically advanced aliens or superhumans, in a science fiction past-future.

The Night Circus

"The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night." - Erin Morgenstern

As you wander the grounds of Le Cirque des Rêves, black and white striped tents on all sides try to catch your attention. Which tent will you choose? Who will you meet in the tent? Or maybe you're a performer, ready to dazzle your audience as they walk in.

How does this meme work?
1 - Post a comment with your character's name and canon in subject.
2a - If you want to be a performer, add a tent number.
or
2b - If not, leave it blank.
3 - Tag others. Do NOT roll if they already have a number in their subject line. Roll (or choose) if they do not.

You get a superpower! And you get a superpower! Everyone gets a superpower!

So here's the deal. Your sadly power-less character now has a power. Have they always had it? Were they recently exposed to improbably power-granting radiation? Did they make a deal with a devil? Your choice! You decide what power they have and what they do with it (become a superhero? be a data entry drone with an incredibly awesome secret?)! The world is an oyster, and you own it, baby!


Common Power Options 

1. Telepathy: You can hear people's thoughts! Which, uh, good luck with that, hope no one around you has a song stuck in their head.

2. Teleportation: Here one second, gone the next! Have fun never needing to own a car or like walk anywhere you lucky bastard, you.

3. Super-strength: Never worry about stuck pickle jars again!

4. Flight: Air traffic control requests that you please please please be careful not to run into any planes, please.

5. Invisibility: See all the movies you could ever want, for free!

6. Shapeshifting: Okay but why would you ever be a human when you could be a tiger instead? BE A TIGER.

7. Super-Healing: You're going to be the most popular person at the ICU!

8. Elemental Manipulation: Fire, earth, water, whatever. You are their god now.

9. Invulnerability: Swim in fire! Eat rocks! Punch a train! These are all great ideas you should try right now immediately because nothing could possibly go wrong! You're INVULNERABLE, BABY.

10. Choose your own or ask RNGesus to give you something random from the Powerlisting Wiki.

DARKEST TIMELINE MEME


The darkest timeline is a phenomenon when there are multiple possibilities for a situation to turn out and progress forward. Each has a different outcome, but one of those possibilities. One of them is the darkest timeline. The timeline in which everything goes wrong and there's no turning back. The villain gets the weapon that will end the war instead of the heroes, you fuck up someone's food order and they turn out to be the health inspector, the cabin you picked has an axe murderer in it, you come back from a pizza run and the whole room is on fire and everyone has grown evil beards--wait, what?

In any case, explore those here: it may not be the end! Maybe you just have to live with this shit forever because there's no way out.

• Top level your character.
• Include any details you might think are relevant about how you want your timeline to go. Or don't. As always, we're not the cops.
• Reply to other people's top levels!
• Have fun!

THE GUNDAM/MECHA MEME



Do you have a giant mecha? ARE you a giant mecha? Do you have some kind of mechanical, piloted device that could count as a mecha if looked at in the right lighting and you kinda squint? Is it actually a clone of a space-born abomination fused with the soul of a dead relative?

then this is the meme for you.


1. Training! You're learning the ropes or a seasoned pilot keeping your skills sharp: either way, you've chosen to engage in a friendly spar or a shooting competition in a combat simulator... or maybe one that isn't so friendly.

2. CHAR! Your eternal rival has appeared on the battlefield! Or maybe it's just a mecha whose design is so offensively ugly that you have to bring them down... either way, you have eyes for nobody else.

3. Did something go "clunk?" Maybe you should have listened to the mechanic before going out, because now your mecha is dangerously low on energy. Or ammo. Or its arms just fell off. Something is wrong and you'd better think fast.

4. Downtime! Time to take a trip to the bar! Or an arcade! Somewhere that you won't have to wear a skintight pilot suit, anyway.

5. Gundamjack! Suddenly you're on the ground and under attack--but wait, there are some mecha right over there just waiting for a pilot! Let's see how you do in something other than your souped-up custom red prototype.

6. Last stand. You're surrounded, the redshirts are gone, your flagship is starting to fall to bits, and the enemy is just getting started. It's all over--all you get to do now is decide how you'll end it.

7. But I'm not a pilot / combat unit! Too bad, because you're under attack and someone has to do SOMETHING about it. Maybe you've got the latest model weapon or mecha, maybe it's mass-produced garbage, but you'd better learn how to use it quick.

8. It was RIGHT. HERE. Good job losing your mecha / highly expensive new equipment. Better find it before your commander has your head on a platter.

9. COLONY DROP. That space station / meteor / giant flagship is falling into the planet's gravity well, just waiting to crush millions. DO SOMETHING.

10. Turncoat! Suddenly, you can't fight for these people anymore. They're too immoral or not immoral enough or someone has sprung the trap you have so carefully laid... it's time to switch sides.

11. Who needs a mecha? Not you. It's time to defend your home with wit, pluck, and a pair of excellent running shoes.

12. Aftermath. Every battle has casualties. Maybe you're a medic, a nurse, or just someone who got dragged into helping, or perhaps you're the patient. Either way, not everyone comes home, and now that the battle's over, there's a lot of cleaning up to do.

13. Victory screeeeeeeech! The fight is over, and you've defeated the Big Bad (if you yourself aren't the Big Bad). It's time to celebrate!

14. ??? Make up your own!

GOOD END MEME



Sometimes you want a fix-it AU. You want everyone to live, to be happy, to find love, so on and so forth. You want the bad guy to lose early, for victory and triumph. No one dies, some deus ex machina saves the world, everyone goes out for ice cream after the final battle, whatever. The moral of the story is, everyone gets a happy ending. Everyone. Slasher movie? Everyone survives the night and the axe murderer changes their ways because they got a puppy. War movie? Both sides decide it's not worth it and sign a peace treaty. So. Like. Have fun with your lives not sucking.

SWITCHING SIDES MEME


Say you're in a war. Whichever side you're on, you want out. Either your side is losing or your beliefs have changed or you're trying to get close to the people important so you can get rid of them and end everything, you're going to switch sides. Maybe you end up having to kill people who used to be your comrades, your friends. Maybe you're acting as a spy. Maybe you're acting as a double triple agent? Calm down there, buddy. Maybe you just want to run away entirely.

This doesn't only have to apply to wars, of course. Maybe your friends are arguing and you changed your mind about who you agree with. Maybe you're trying to decide what to have for dinner and originally you wanted pizza but now you want a burger and everyone is pissed at you. The point is, things have changed. You have changed. What are you going to do now?
