Open Post 2016 2017 Edition

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.

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
Don't like any of the above? Here are some other options:
1. Picture Prompt: go here or any of your other favorite picture sites. Leave me a few pictures and I'll set something up.
2. Pick a prompt from this prompt tumblr or try googling OTP prompts
3. Insomnia! One or both of you can't sleep. Be awake together.
4. Leave me a scenario, lyrics, a word or a quote

I do what I want! For Barry.

Don't ask Dani O'Malley how she ended up here in Central City. All she knows is she started running and didn't give up, didn't ever stop until she got here and found herself running faster than anyone else should be able to run alongside someone else. What the feck? She's the only one who's supposed to be able to do that! Not fair, world! Not fair! Her one special thing that sets her apart from all the rest and someone else in a red jumpsuit's got the same ability?

Not bloody likely. Something's amiss here. Leave it to Dani 'Mega' O'Malley to figure it out. Dani's smart, smarter than anyone really gives her credit for.

So they freeze-frame along, Dani zipping past him and stopping short. Him slipping past her and stopping short. Again, and again, they circle around each other until they just go at it in one long run, speeding together through the streets, the wind whipping past Dani's long flaming red hair and her feeling like she's flying. Until Dani's endurance starts to peter out. Of course it does! Can't let Dani O'Malley get the better of a guy in spandex even! Fecking hell!!!

She keeps trying to jump start her freeze-frame. In short bursts she goes and then slows down until finally it isn't even worth it. She pauses to pluck a candy bar our of her pocket and start munching on it. Food should help. She always has food on hand.

Central City isn't a bad place to end up. The moment Barry sees another speedster, he panics a little. The only other one he knows of is Wells and that didn't turn out so well. He's deeply curious as well. She doesn't seem to be trying to kill him. That's new and refreshing.

There's always something amiss in Central City.

It's a game: let her get ahead then speed past. He assumes she's doing the same: letting him get ahead then speeding past him. Barry loves running. He always has, but he'd only really come to love it once he'd gotten his power. Running this fast was like flying. The only reason that Barry isn't running out of endurance is because he trains for this all the time. He's been training to beat Wells and that had required a great deal of endurance.

Barry catches up with her and comes to a stop. "haven't seen you around," he says by way of greeting.

When he stops, green-gold eyes look him up and down as if he's an oddity she's trying to suss out. She looks at him like a person looks at a magician while trying to figure out the trick part of a card trick. Surely it's a trick. Aside from Ryodan's men, she's the fastest. This boy's got to have some sort of trick up his sleeve that makes him able to run fast as Dani can, maybe faster, but that's still up for debate far as Dani's concerned.

"Course you haven't seen me about. I've never been out of Dublin 'til now." She speaks around the gooey chocolate and coconut in her mouth, swallows, takes another quick bite.

It's somehow very obvious that she's no longer in Dublin. She's only just starting to understand that much. Outside of Dublin? Away from Ryodan and Dancer and Christian? Away from Barrons and Mac! Holy shite! She's all alone! Well, not all alone, just without all the people she knows. This is both terrifying and exciting at the same time. Dani starts to vibrate, becoming a blur of a person in front of the boy.

"I'm not in Dublin. Where the feck am I?" The vibrating blur seems to turn around, looking up at the buildings surrounding them.

She's striking, those eyes and that hair. Yes, that is one of the first things that occur to him. She's also studying him. It's pretty clear that she's not from Central City by her accent, not to mention he thinks he would have noticed another speedster. No tricks. He's just done a lot of training lately. One has to run really fast to go back in time and that's been his goal since he discovered he could do it. Of course, he'd made the decision not to change the past, but that's neither here nor there right now.

"Do you--there's a great food truck around the corner. We could get some tacos." He knows how hungry he gets when he runs this way and he's starving right now. Of course, tomorrow's blog will show The Flash getting tacos with a redhead, but that can't be helped.

He sees that panic coming even before she starts vibrating. He can only see her because his brain processes images faster so that he can see when he's running. "Hey. It's okay. Slow down."

"Central City." At least he can answer that one easily enough. "Missouri, the United States." Since she's not from here.

For as easy on the eyes as boys have been telling her she is, especially lately, since she's started to grow into her eighteen years, Dani is still ever the tomboy. She just doesn't see what's so great about her that it makes boys stare. On top of that, she wasn't so much raised by anyone as kept in a cage by her mom until Rowena had plucked her out for her sidhe-seer abilities (don't even get her started on the fucked up-ness that was her relationship with Ro) so she can be somewhat of a wild thing, un-tethered to any social graces or niceties aside from doing all the dirty work of what needs doing.

So when the boy asks her if she wants some food, she sort of hesitates around a mouthful of chocolate and coconut. If she weren't someone who'd once been fed very little, she would have offered him some of her candy bar. If she'd known who he was and why he has her ability, that is! Still not fair! Nope, this candy bar is hers.

Needless to say, the money she has will not work here in the US of A. That almost embarrasses her so she skips right over the offer of food even though she's hungry. And how exciting is it to be in the USA?? Super exciting!

"Can't help it. I vibrate when I'm excited." She says with a shrug. She vibrates a lot, and not just when she's excited. "I'm in the bloody United States! For the first time." In the blink of an eye she's in front of him and shaking his hand. "Where'd you get this costume, eh? Why don't I have a costume? Don't hide much, does it?" She lets go of his hand and walks around him, looking him over. "Good thing about runnin' fast, keep in ship shape!" Dani's now reaching out to pinch a bit of the fabric at Barry's arm and pull it before letting it snap back into place.

"Speakin' of, what're you doin' stealin' my gig? I'm supposed to be the fastest runner!" Not really. She's all bluster right here. Ryodan somehow moves faster than her, bastard.

There's nothing wrong with being a tomboy and Barry can imagine that attention is hard to get used to. He'd been lucky growing up with the family he had, he knows that and it's made him very much the person he is now. One's childhood definitely affects that.

He doesn't mind that she's not sharing.

She really doesn't need to be embarrassed. Once she's fed, Barry would direct her to a bank where she could change her money, as it is he lives with his adopted father and he's got an actual grown up job, he can afford to buy her some food.

He can't help but grin when she says she's excited. "In that case, welcome to the United States." He shakes her hand, a little shell shocked. he's accustomed to moving that fast, but he's not accustomed anyone else moving that fast, even with his experience with Wells. "A friend of mine made--" then she's pinching it and telling him it doesn't hide much and he's blushing. He's sure it looks ridiculous with his mask.

"Maybe in Ireland," Barry tells her with a cheeky grin, "But you're in the USA now."
thefeckingmega: (dani ☘ four)

[personal profile] thefeckingmega 2016-01-23 03:53 pm (UTC)(link)
She isn't just telling him it doesn't hide much. She also gave him a hinted compliment. Because he does look good in it. Dani is wearing sneakers, jeans, a tank top and her long leather coat (which totally looks bad ass). Her sword, the infamous sword of light, is hidden in the confines of her coat, out of sight. It's one of only two fae relics that can kill the unseelie. And yes, it's hers. Nobody touches her sword.

That cheeky grin gets a coquettish tilt of her head and a grin of her own. "USA's full of speedsters, eh? Well, guess we're not so special anymore." She steps back, examining her nails as if she gives a shite about her nails, which are short and have a bit of dirt beneath them. "Guess I'd rather be in Ireland."

The look she gives him is playful, betraying the truth of the matter. Ireland is overrun by unseelie at this point. No hope of getting out of it. Being here is like a vacation. She'll take it.

"Name's Dani. Dani O'Malley." She searches his face for any kind of recognition. In Dublin a lot of people know her. Some know her as Dani. Some know her as the Mega, he signature for all the reports she leaves around town about the fae and the general state of things. She's gonna be famous someday! World wide famous. A legend! Just wait, world. Here comes the Mega! She saved the fecking world! Someday.

[personal profile] in3 2016-01-26 11:27 pm (UTC)(link)
He got that implied compliment and he's flattered by it, but it was implied and maybe it wasn't actually a compliment? Maybe he just wants it to be because she's hot and she's a speedster and it would be nice if she flirted with him and yes, the coat is a good coat.

"Well, I've met one other," he confirms with a grin. His brows go up a bit at her declaration that she'd rather be in Ireland. "At least give me a chance to show you Central City before you make that decision."

Yeah, he sees that look and it makes him wonder what's up in Ireland.

"The Flash," he responds, but he doesn't give her his real name and there's no recognition of hers. He can only imagine that the group at STAR labs will want to give her a look over. He'll broach that subject later. "Why don't I take you by my headquarters? We'll have pizza delivered and I can change into regular clothes."
thefeckingmega: (dani ☘ fourteen)

[personal profile] thefeckingmega 2016-01-27 10:47 pm (UTC)(link)
A city with two other speedsters? Well, that's certainly better than a city full of them. Two, she can handle. With only two others to compete with, maybe she could still be the best! Dany Mega O'Malley! The best, fastest, strongest, wittiest, smartest -- oh, no. She isn't always the smartest. Even she can admit to that. But she's one fecking hell of a gal!

"The Flash!?!? Ugh! Why didn't I say the Mega? I'm the Mega!" She says her name and then he comes up with an awesome name like 'the flash'? Not fair! That's such a cool name! Why did she never think of that name? She's pretty irritated about it but she sighs and tries to put all of that aside, for now. In the back of her mind though, she's grumbling about how the Mega is way cooler than the Flash... name wise. Because it is! Maybe.

But wait! There's more!

"You've got a headquarters??? A headquarters that has pizza? Feckin' hell! You got a whole set up." She's vibrating again, the freckles on her cheeks seeming to blur first before the rest of her. She forcibly makes herself stop the second she realizes that she's doing it. "Feck yeah, I want to go see your secret headquarters! You should put the word secret in there because it makes it sound way cooler. Also, I've never had pizza." She's only ever seen pizza in TV and movies.

She starts walking with the flash. "I'm dyin' to have pizza!" She nods at the street. "You go. I'll follow." Dani gives him a wink. This time if she's a little slower, well, it's because she's purposefully following! There's a reason!

She's not evil and doesn't appear to want to kill him so that puts her in at least the top two in the USA as far as he knows. Barry will agree to the hell of a gal bit even if he doesn't know her very well yet.

He can't help but laugh. "It's a good name," he tells her. He'll have to reveal his secret identity when they get to the lab, but he figures it's safer for him to do that there than it is out here in the middle of the street.

"Yeah, it's called STAR labs," he tells her, that smile of his broad. "We'll have to have the pizza delivered," he tells her. "It doesn't just always live there." The vibrating is actually kind of cute now that he knows it doesn't mean anything is wrong with her. "I'll make sure to get plenty of pizza then." Two speedsters and one of them has never had pizza before? He's going to order at least six pizzas in all different flavors. "Is there anything you don't eat?" So he'll know which toppings not to get.

He nods in agreement with her and takes off with Dani close at his heels. It won't take long to get to the lab, just a few minutes.

Dani crinkles the empty candy bar wrapper up and shoves it in her pocket. Even with (her) Dublin gone to shite she doesn't like messing places up. When he tells her the Mega is a good name, she practically beams. Dani is a hundred percent everything all the time. It's rare that she's uncertain and even more rare that she lets that uncertainty show.

"STAR labs." She repeats the name of his secret headquarters as she looks up at the actual stars. It's a cool name! Everything about the Flash is cool. If Dani didn't know that she was just as cool or cooler, she might be jealous. Pro tip : She's still a little bit jealous. How could she not be? He's got a cool suit, cool name, cool secret headquarters where you can order pizza. Cool.

"I eat anything you put in front of me... 'cept vegetables." She wrinkles her nose and shudders. Dani's never had vegetables on pizza though. Maybe that makes them taste good. How would she know? Her entire life her diet has consisted of junk food and candy bars.

Dani speeds behind him. She doesn't do that lightning thing he does, those streaks of light that crackle around and behind him are strange. Dani just disappears, moving too fast for the eye to see -- well, for most eyes to see. Running alongside Barry, she can see him and he can see her, pale skin, flame red hair and bad ass coat flapping in the air behind her. She gives him a big grin and a wink before freeze framing back out of his line of sight to follow.

He appreciates that she doesn't litter his city. There'll be a trash can nearby she can put it in, or wait until she gets to the lab. The nice thing about people who are a hundred percent all the time is that you know where they stand and what they're thinking, He likes that as well.

She doesn't know him well enough yet, hasn't seem him fall off the treadmill going two hundred miles an hour yet and be a complete dork. Everything about the Flash is not cool (but the action figures kind of are). However, he's glad she thinks so for the moment. It helps put his mind at ease about taking her back to his secret headquarters.

He nods a little. "Alright. We'll do meat and cheese pizzas." He'll probably grab a couple of supremes because he likes vegetables on his pizza. She's lucky that she is a speedster with that sort of diet.

If it makes her feel any better, he doesn't do the freeze frame thing. He can see her and he sees that wink, which is almost enough to make him falter a little. He even turns red under his mask. It doesn't take long before they're at STAR labs and going in through the employee entrance. He comes to a stop in the main work room. Caitlin and Cisco are both there.

"Caitlin, Cisco, this is Dani. She's another speedster." Obviously. "From Dublin." He looks to Cisco. "Could we get some pizzas? Half a dozen."

thefeckingmega: (dani ☘ thirteen)

[personal profile] thefeckingmega 2016-02-06 07:24 pm (UTC)(link)
The speed with which Dani moves forward and grabs Caitlin and Cisco's hand is mind blowing, really. There's no flashy lights. One minute she's next to Barry. The next minute she's at Caitlin. The next minute she's at Cisco. Maybe she's showing off a little bit. She likes showing off. Then she's walking (swaggering) around the place, hands in the pockets of her long, leather coat looking around at all the high-tech gadgetry there is to see.

"Feckin'-A, you got a real operation here, Flash. It's Grade-A awesome!" In Dublin (Dani's Dublin), the power's been down for some time, only just starting to be restored. But this place seems just fine. It's like how things used to be in her world.

She's never seen technology like this, not up close, not really. The Abbey had never had it. The delivery service had a computer but nothing like what she sees here. She'd stolen a few laptops and iPods after the walls fell. It might seem morbid to use them when their owners were those who died. Dani considers it less morbid and more not letting things go to waste.

[personal profile] in3 2016-02-12 02:13 am (UTC)(link)
Cisco and Caitlin's shock shows in their expression. Barry had said that she's a speedster, but they don't expect such a show of speed. They expect some sort of breeze. They don't expect the way that Dani freeze frames toward them. They're duly impressed. "Whoa," Cisco lets out a little gasp. Caitlin is just stopping herself from launching into a request for tests. She wants to see this girl on the monitors, on the treadmill. She wants to observe her brainwaves and her heart beat.

Barry chuckles, ducking his head a little. He presses his lips together and looks to Cisco and Caitlin. "I'm going to go change. You two can keep Dani company?"

And he's actually not going to use his speed to do it. He wants to give Caitlin and Cisco a chance to be alone with Dani for just a few moments. It'll also give Cisco a chance to show Dani all the tech.

When Barry returns, he's no longer wearing the costume. He's got on jeans and a tee shirt with a zip up hoody over it. He approaches Dani with a sheepish sort of smile. "When not in costume, I go by Barry," he introduces himself to her again.
thefeckingmega: (dani ☘ twelve)

[personal profile] thefeckingmega 2016-02-18 09:05 pm (UTC)(link)
By the time Barry gets back the trio are in full geek out mode over the tech as Cisco explains it to Dani. She's peppering them with questions at a rapid fire pace, the same pace in which she does everything else. It's clear that Dani always seems to have too much energy stored up and is constantly just on the verge of freeze framing. In truth, it's been very rare in Dani's life in which time, and Dani herself, has seemed to slow to a normal pace.

She does not, it should be noted, submit to any testing. Her power is unseelie, they've learned, the dark fae prince having created the first sidhe-seers. But Dani's, good, see? Nothing unseelie about her! She kills the feckin' bastards for christ's sake. Plus, she's super cool, just ask her.

"Oh Barry, you should always go by the Flash! It's so much cooler. Not that Barry ain't a bloody fantastic name, mind you. It's just... the Flash! Can't beat that, really!"

Dani is suddenly in front of Barry, gesturing back to the equipment Cisco has been showing her. "And look at all the stuff the Flash's got to back him up. People too! You got a real nice set up here, Barry. It's feckin' awesome! But I bet you already knew that."

[personal profile] in3 2016-02-25 08:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Barry is accustomed to geek out mode. He even participates in it from time to time. It's interesting to observe Dani because she's very different from Barry personality wise. Barry often moves fast, but he's not in constant motion the way that Dani is.

Cisco and Caitlyn won't push the testing thing once she shows reluctance for it. No one is doubting that Dani is one of the good guys, at least not right now.

He can't help but smile at her exclamation. "The Flash is sort of my super hero identity. Barry is my secret one."

He nods, looking around at Cisco and Caitlyn. "Yeah. I've got the best support system a guy could ask for." He looks back to Dani. "What about you? Are you on your own in Ireland?"
thefeckingmega: (dani ☘ six)

[personal profile] thefeckingmega 2016-02-28 07:03 pm (UTC)(link)
There had been a time when Dani had doubted that she was one of the good guys. Now, she doesn't doubt it so much as she once had when she was under Roweena's thumb, only very rarely. Now, for the most part, she knows she's the super-feckin-hero of the story rather than the alternative. Dublin would be up a creek without a paddle without her.

Dude. She's the MEGA! Of course she's the hero! Who needs a paddle when you have Dani 'Mega' O'Malley?

"Every super hero needs an identity. I'm the Mega!" She says with a flourish of pride and street urchin guffaw. Everything is over-the-top with Dani. She's very rarely 'down' except when she's alone and lost in her own thoughts about the things she's done that weren't so super hero-ish.

Also, she won't admit just yet that Mega is short for Megan which is her middle name. It sounds cooler just to be The Mega. "Cool as The Flash, ain't it? The Mega and The Flash, we make a fine pair of super heroes."

She has to think about whether or not she's got an actual support system. There used to be Mac. There was Christian who's now questionable now that he's an Unseelie Prince. Ryodan's only out for himself. Then there's Dancer. "Sure, I got people. But mostly it's just me, out on me own, livin' the feckin' life in high style! Not quite so high-tech as you but I got my own tricks up my sleeve."
