Pick one of my characters or drop any of your characters in and get a random choice.
Pick a scenario or use RNG (or make one up if you don't see what you want here).
Have fun!




I. Roadtrip

1. BREAK DOWN. Oh snap. Your car decided to break down out in the middle of nowhere. WHAT DO? Is that Leather-face? Will this be "Children of the Corn"?
2. HITCHHIKERS? Is this even a good idea? Threads may also have a third participant. Go wild.
3. WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST HIT? Dude, I hear deer mess up cars... Or I think that was a deer...
4. DON'T MAKE ME TURN THIS CAR AROUND. Alas. You're the parent or disgruntled friend who has had it up to here with all the fighting in the back. This thread may also have a third or even fourth participant, if you can wing it.
5. OMG, I WANT TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THIS LANDMARK! No, no, and no. You tell that person that they're going to be driven around and they're going to like it.
6. THE GREAT ESCAPE. Either dinosaurs or the moth-man is chasing you. Don't stop now.
7. MAKE OUT. For whatever reason, the person you're traveling with in the car. You would love to make out with them and then some.



II. Cuddles

1. SWEET DREAMS. It's been a long day and all you want to do is sleep or just rest your eyes for a bit. Hopefully whoever is close by doesn't mind if you use them as a blanket.
2. STORMY WEATHER. The heavy rain, thunder, and lightning won't be letting up anytime soon. Luckily, it's the perfect weather to stay indoors and snuggle up close and keep warm.
3. SLOW DANCE. It's the end of a party, or maybe it's only the two of you, but the tempo is slow and the lights are low. Let your dance partner take the weight and just sway.
4. SURPRISE ATTACK. Time to invade someone's personal space. Are they working too much and need a distraction? Maybe you just wanted to brighten their day. Either way, they won't see it coming.
5. MOVIE NIGHT. It can be on the sofa or in a darkened theater, but you've got your popcorn and someone to settle against during your favorite movie.
6. I LOVE YOU, MAN. It's totally platonic, really. You're just very good friends, no matter what people like to think. But you just love your friend so much you want to hug them, whether they like it or not.
7. JEEPERS CREEPERS. Welp. You were just frightened. Was it a spider in the washroom, a ghost in the attic, a bad dream? Either way, you're looking for someone to cling to right now, and who better than that person right there?
8. HURT AND COMFORT. Whether you're sick in bed, just been dumped, or suffered a traumatic event, you need someone to wrap their arms around you and make everything go away.
9. SUNDAY MORNING. Maybe you just had a wild night. Maybe there's just not enough space at your place and you need to share your bed. Or maybe you just got really tired and someone else happened to be there. Doesn't matter because now the person with you looks way more comfortable than any blanket or pillow. Drape to your heart's content.
10. MOMENT AFTER. You just had incredible, vigorous sex and if you weren't a cuddler before, you are now. You're probably too exhausted to do anything else anyway. Just enjoy the moment.
11. PLAYER'S CHOICE. Pick one or make up your own!




III. Hurt/Comfort

1. INJURY. You've been injured. Broken bones or bleeding out or maybe just a tiny little paper-cut. The choice is yours.
2. SICKNESS. You're sick and laid up in bed, at home or in a hospital. The severity is up to you.
3. FEAR/ANXIETY. Something is happening and you're scared beyond belief.
4. LOSS OF SENSES. Sight, touch, taste, hearing, smell, etc. You've lost some important sense or ability and now you're left to deal with it.
5. DESPAIR. Nothing is good or right anymore and you can't shake the depression. Maybe that friend of yours can help though.
6. MAKE UP. Fight or break up, it's time to make up.
7. RESCUED. You've just been held captive and/or tortured for however long and finally, someone has come to the rescue.
8. BAD ROMANCE. Fight, cheat on, abuse, whatever the case is, someone else can clearly see you need comfort from someone who isn't your terrible lover tonight.
9. LOSS. You've experienced a loss of some kind and need help getting through it.




IV. Texts from Last Night

1.Go here
2. Make Magic happen




V. Intimacy

1. PHYSICAL INTIMACY. It might just be innocent touches or it might be foreplay.
2. LONG CONVERSATIONS. Honest words can be more intimate than touch.
3. DRUNK. You're over-sharing or simply maudlin.
4. FORCED INTIMACY. Magic. A truth serum, whatever - you didn't mean to bare your soul, but that is precisely what you're doing right now.
5. SLOW-DANCING. There is something inherently intimate about trusting someone else to lead you, and someone trust you to lead them.
6. OTHER. Intimacy can come in many forms. Pick your poison.




VI. SENTINEL GUIDE
Prompts
oo1. The Meeting:
How did you meet? Was it at an event organized specifically for finding your other half? By accident? Did you follow a mystical calling to them? Some other way?

oo2. Rejection:
Sometimes Sentinels or Guides propose a match but it's just not perfect. You don't feel the pull or maybe you think there is someone better or maybe you're already claimed. Maybe you were claimed and someone better came along?

oo3. Protection:
Sentinels are meant to protect Guides, any Guides, but it's even worse when they feel their Guide is in danger. They go feral; blind to anything but stopping and killing whoever threatened their Guide or the bond. Maybe someone attacked your Guide or you haven't bonded yet and you feel threatened or maybe you're the one doing the threatening. Whatever the reason, Sentinels in a feral state are dangerous and only their Guides can stop them.

oo4. Lost:
Sentinels often lose themselves in their senses. Either you're a Sentinel who has lost themselves or a Guide that has stumbled on one or a friend trying to draw them out. Unbonded Sentinels will find it hard to escape without a Guide. Or maybe you're bonded already which means you just need yours to come home.

005. Persecution:
Sometimes normal people or the government fear the power of Guides and Sentinels. Guides are empaths, feeling the emotions and sometimes passing thoughts of others and it can make people feel violated. Sentinels often have enhanced strength, which can make them dangerous. So they scorn them, hurt them or in the case of governments, regulate them.

oo6. Old-School:
Guides used to be treated on the same level as slaves. Unable to work unless their Sentinel said. Not allowed out on their own. They used to wear collars and couldn't own land or inherit money. Maybe the old ways haven't completely fallen out of style.

oo7. Unbonded:
Nothing sucks more than being an unbonded Guide or Sentinel. Always looking for your other half to fill that empty feeling but you probably have friends that aren't your match or who are trying to set you up with someone. Maybe you're skeptical about the whole love at first sight thing and haven't been looking.

oo8. Wildcard: Some mish-mash of the above or anything else you can come up with!



Other Options

2. Pick a prompt from this prompt tumblr or try googling OTP prompts

Dude, that does not mean it's okay to remind me of it.

I'm pretty sure Katniss does not agree.

She doesn't have a thing for pirates?

I think she likes bakers better, at least I hope she does

[personal profile] refusestofall 2017-05-23 07:27 pm (UTC)(link)
She is with you, after all. It's either the pastries or something else you give her. ;)

[personal profile] withbread 2017-05-25 09:43 pm (UTC)(link)

Have you met Katniss? It's definitely the food, but I think everything else adds to it. I hope anyway... And that's enough about me and my relationship. You're telling me you remained entirely sober and embarrassment free that night?

refusestofall: (Default)

[personal profile] refusestofall 2017-05-26 02:48 am (UTC)(link)
Of course I was. I'm an upstanding citizen in this fine, respectful city.

[personal profile] withbread 2017-05-27 06:42 pm (UTC)(link)

In other words, no one saw you being drunk and ridiculous

i didn't know what to throw at you so allow me to be original.



+ a song for your amusement~

[ Sometimes, you really just need to get away from Mystic Falls and the last trip Elena and Damon had been on had involved a lot more blood and death than Elena really wanted to linger on. This trip is going to be different, mostly because Elena's humanity switch is firmly switched on for this trip.

Damon's affinity for bourbon is something that Elena is acquainted with and it's also the inspiration for their destination: Lexington, Kentucky aka the birthplace of bourbon. There is also, apparently, a horse race or two that takes place. However, Damon is more interested in the bourbon.

Which is also why they're currently in a bar. Damon has managed to get his hands on a bottle of bourbon while Elena is content with a scoop of ice cream and hot fudge. She takes a bite of the ice cream, holding the spoon in her mouth for a moment before she pulls it out. ]


Okay, I'll bite. Tell me how your bourbon is better than my ice cream and fudge.
redamonable: (pic#9751288)

[personal profile] redamonable 2017-05-25 05:38 am (UTC)(link)
[Mystic Falls was the last place he wanted to be right now so this was already working out great. But the part where he had Elena's company on this trip was just the cherry on top. For a few days, maybe a week even, there were no vampire hunters, witches, or other brand of sanity to worry about, for once there was just peace, relaxation, Them. And Damon was doing his damnest to enjoy it.

Of course that means tasting bourbon in the place it was born. He knew a thing or two when it came to its history since he was there making some of it actually. Which is why he doesn't blame Elena for her naivety. Tsking at her question though, he holds his glass up at eye level between them for her to see. He was happy educating her.]


Age, Elena. It has everything to do with age. [He lets the last few words roll off his tongue and hang there for a moment.] Your ice cream was, what? Made 24 hours ago? A week? This glass here is 8 years of perfection. Rye, caramel, orange, lemon, oak - a complexity of layers than just your bland vanilla. If you're interested now, just ask. I'll pour.
proweird: (Brightest smile)

[personal profile] proweird 2017-05-26 12:35 am (UTC)(link)
[ Mystic Falls is rarely boring and even more rarely relaxing and peaceful. The trip was a good idea and Elena is glad that Damon had suggested it. They've certainly earned this time off. She's going to do her best to enjoy it as well, and probably document it with pictures.

Yes. Yes. He's old. She knows. She'll tease him about it too. I mean, if he's going to make it so easy for her, how can she not? She smirks at his words and takes another bite of her ice cream, licking the fudge off the spoon. ]
Is this where you tell me older is always better? [ She shrugs a little. ] I feel as if our trip to Kentucky would be incomplete if I didn't try the bourbon. [ By all means, pour.]
redamonable: (pic#9095948)

[personal profile] redamonable 2017-05-26 04:41 am (UTC)(link)
[Chances are he'd document with pictures too the second she wasn't looking. Pictures of her turned away or sleeping would be some examples of things he wouldn't feel shame for doing.

Well, it's certainly not something he meant to make easy for her to tease him about. But rolling with it.]
You tell me. [He smiles wider, allowing his words to take a suggestive tone. (Though in a way she may as well started it by licking her spoon.) He'll pour a little into the clean glass the barkeep assumed Elena would be using before offering it over to her courteously.] You may just be the bourbon girl type.

[personal profile] proweird 2017-05-27 06:47 pm (UTC)(link)

[ That's unbearably adorable of him, but she thinks he ought to just confess his love of the selfie and take some pictures of the two of them laughing, having fun and toasting each other.

He has to consider these things particularly when she's in a good mood and feeling mischievous. He starts to pour and she gets her phone camera out, snapping away whether he decides to pose for it or not. The spoon licking was planned very carefully, thank you very much. She takes the glass and holds it up to toast. ]

To finding out if I'm the bourbon sort of girl. [ She takes a sip, aware from watching Damon and Stefan drink that it isn't a shot, but a sipping sort of drink. The flavor is more reminiscent of a campfire, and yes there's a richness to it that reminds her of blood--in a good way, than what she's used to drinking but...]

I think I could come around to being a bourbon sort of girl. [ Another sip and this time she watches Damon to see how he drinks his particularly]

redamonable: (pic#9095400)

[personal profile] redamonable 2017-05-30 10:58 pm (UTC)(link)
[Okay, that's true. They could stand to have more pictures of the two of them and his un-aging good looks. She's not wrong there.

When she starts snapping pictures, he's caught off guard for about a millisecond, but his years on this earth as a vampire gave him quick flexes and he uses them to flair bartend. Whoop! His hand flips her glass backwards and manages to catch it upright on the back of his hand. Not a drop. He finishes the pour as normal, then clanks his glass with hers in her toast.]


To taking your first step to being a bourbon sort of girl. [He joins her in taking a slightly larger, more thirsty swig after watching how she reacts to the bourbon. Far as he can tell she's managing with its particular taste, which warms his little vampire heart seeing. May as well be a turn on.]

And on a scale from 1 to 10, where would you say you are now? [He doesn't even try hiding the cheeky smirk.]
proweird: (I love you playfully)

[personal profile] proweird 2017-05-31 03:34 am (UTC)(link)
[ Yes, that's exactly what she was getting, Damon.

Of course he's learned flair bartending. It doesn't surprised her, but it does make her laugh. The laugh makes the picture a little shaky, but she captures the glass balanced on the back of his hand. ]show off [It's whispered through the laugh.

It's a good taste: warm, rich, sophisticated somehow. She likes it, despite (and maybe because) of the way it burns down her throat and warms her up from the inside. Her smile is mischievous as she watches him, aware that he's waiting for her response. She finally puts him out of his misery.]
On a scale from 1 to 10, I'd say I'm a solid 7. I need a little more time with it to really form a bond. You know how I like to take my time about those things.
redamonable: (pic#9173441)

[personal profile] redamonable 2017-05-31 08:33 pm (UTC)(link)
[You flatter him, Elena. And there are so few people that do that that mean something to him, though her more than anyone, which is why he takes it as the highest compliment.

Her laughter is better than any other sound in the bar and he lets her laugh as long as she wants.]
What was that now? Show you again? [He knows he's selectively hearing things and changing them, but that's half the fun.]

Are you sure? People are staring us. [Not because of his fancy trick though, but because they are the most beautiful people in there and her laughter is drawing their curious eyes. He doesn't sober down the slightest from his playful act after hearing what she says about it being a 7 out of 10.]

Looks like we have a little work to do then. Shall we order another bottle?
proweird: (Smile because I love you)

[personal profile] proweird 2017-06-03 01:34 am (UTC)(link)
[ She's a stater of facts, Damon. That's all this is.

She's having fun. That's what this trip is about. He is selectively hearing things, but that is at least half the fun and it makes her laugh again. This time, she manages to get it on video. She shrugs at his admonishment.]
Let them stare.

[ Oh is that why they're staring? She thinks it has more to do with the fancy trick, though he is easily the most handsome guy in the room. She has excellent taste. She sighs dramatically, tossing her hair back.] But of course. Who am I to stop such important work.
redamonable: (pic#9095948)

[personal profile] redamonable 2017-06-03 02:13 pm (UTC)(link)
[In that case, he's all ears.

He's having fun too. Elena makes it easy with her with her presence and her care-free spirit. She's just asking for another trick by taking a video of him and he delivers by tightening the cap and giving her a basic palm spin with the bottle.

They are probably staring at his tricks but he's choosing to see it play it as if they're staring them.]
Who knew you liked being the center of attention. [He only says in jest.

But her hair toss provides him with amusement contrary to that statement.]
My, my. She does like the attention.

[Who is he to say he doesn't like this side of her? His finger goes up to beacons the barkeep over and at the bottle they have to indicate another. This was already proofing to be more fun than if they were in Mystic Falls.]

Can't say I don't approve. [He adds after the barkeep gets his message and brings over bottle numéro deux.]
