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

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."

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?"

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."

As a joke she shows him there's nothing but her wrist up the sleeve of her leather jacket. "So what sort of badies do you fight, eh? Got any shades or fae in this city need taken care of?" Dani has one of only two weapons that can truly kill them. Let her tell you all about it, Barry. She likes to hear herself talk... about herself.
