APPRENTICE-SHIPPING

From the moment we begin our lives, we're learning. It's imperative to surviving, to growing - don't walk in the shadows, it's dangerous, don't touch the fire, you'll be hurt. These days, most continue to hone this natural instinct with formal schooling, but that's certainly not the end all, be all of knowledge. If you go to school or not, if you have the opportunity or otherwise, you won't stop sharpening your mind after those formative years. That's just not the way our incredible brains work.

You, specifically, have actually decided to something equally incredible: you want to really dedicate yourself to learning a skill, and what better way than an apprenticeship? Formal or informal, you're under someone's tutelage, absorbing everything they can teach, growing closer to them in the process...

...unfortunately, though, you've gained a little something extra with that bite from the fruit of knowledge. You've fallen for your mentor.

Do you realize this pitfall immediately, or will you have to learn the hard way?

  • Comment with your character, preferences, what role you'd like them to fill, and any information you'd like to include.
  • Like it says up there, the situation or setup can be strict or loose, and there may or may not be an age difference involved. Be specific in your preferences.

Swear myself to you

Oct. 21st, 2017 09:23 pm
[personal profile] shonenjump posting in [community profile] bakerstreet

The Swear Myself to You Meme


It's been like this your entire life. Or perhaps it just seems that way, since it's been this way so long. Or it could hasn't been that long, and you remember what things were like before - worthless, fruitless, purposeless. Now, though, all is different. You've sworn your life to someone...or had your life sworn to them by someone else, back when you were young or powerless enough to not control your life. It doesn't matter if this swearing is an expected part of your society or an oddity in a modern age, here you are, and you know what you're here for. This isn't servitude, not in a fashion, as there's theoretically an honor here in your absolute loyalty. You are essentially on your "sworn duty's" level, you've just, well, chosen to dedicate your life to them. So if you're their best or brainwashed into being their right hand, all of it comes from a place of admiration!

Hopefully!

Theoretically.

Your position, of course, means you're a tool to be used, and every job needs a different tool. What's your job? Were you raised from an infant be be a constant companion for the one you're sworn to, who you grew up with? Instead, you could be a bodyguard or a first line of defense. In some cultures, there's an expectation that people be good in bed for future spouses; you could be there to train the one you're sworn to in the art of lovemaking. Of course, how well you're able to do your job depends on how your relationship is with your most important person. Are they kind? Cruel? What if they don't want you? It will be incredibly awkward if neither of you want to be in this position.

One certainty is this, however: romance and sexuality, unless heavily controlled, is forbidden. After all, how can you effectively dedicate yourself to them if some part of you wants them to dedicate themself to you?

How to Play
  • Comment with your character, your preferences, and what side of the equation you'd prefer to play - the being sworn to or the one doing said swearing. There are also three settings available: old fashion, modern, and future. You may want to specify which one of those you'd like, if you have a strong opinion.
  • Reply to others.
  • Use the RNG to determine your scenario.


Setting
  1. Old Fashion: In the days of yore, be it ancient, medieval, or pseudo-Victorian - or altogether fantastical.
  2. Modern: The here and now, where swearing to someone is pretty rare.
  3. Future: Years from now, who knows what strange alien cultures and technologies we'll have to abide by?


Prompts
  1. From Birth: You two were raised together, as one of you was given as a baby. There's no one who knows the other better than you.
  2. BFFs: You are intended to be their lifetime companion...platonically, of course.
  3. Repayment: You owe your life to them in one way or another. Devotion is the least you can do.
  4. Out of Love: The reason you swore yourself to them is because you love them and this is the best way to be close to them, even if you have to sacrifice other things.
  5. Unwilling Charge: Can you swear yourself to someone who doesn't want you?
  6. Spoils of War: Being here and swearing allegiance isn't your idea, but when you or your people are defeated in battle, there's not much else you can do.
  7. Ward: Perhaps you weren't there as an infant, but you did grow up in the family from a young age. They may be like a sibling to you. Would you be able to view them in any other way?
  8. Marriage: ...a marriage is sort of a swearing, isn't it?
  9. Mind Control: You need to be more pliable and loyal to be any good, servant.
  10. Familiar: You were created through magic just for them.
  11. Guard: Focus. You have to protect them, and you can't if you're distracted.
  12. Eunuch: You're supposed to be completely chaste and celibate, or at least that's what they and those around them think.
  13. To Teach: Your charge is going to be married, and you have to teach them how to please a future spouse.
  14. Jealousy: You know you're not supposed to be
  15. More than One: Someone else has sworn themselves to your charge...you were here first!
  16. More than This: You want to be more to them than just a glorified servant.
  17. Unwilling Charge: They don't want you, but you have to serve them.
  18. Redemption: This is your way to make up for the sins of your past.
  19. ...what?: How to you get someone sworn to you again?
  20. Utter Devotion: There isn't anything you wouldn't do for them. Anything.
  21. Forbidden: Being with them sexually is a punishable offense for you, but neither of you care.
  22. Equals: In society, you two are on different levels. In private, you see more eye to eye.
  23. Not Too Serious: The more crack-y option. They saved you...but it was from something like stubbing your toe. Obviously, you owe yourself to them. Or something.

Also known as the "Cabin in the Woods esque meme."




Horror - Horror fiction, horror literature and also horror fantasy is a genre of literature, which is intended to, or has the capacity to frighten its readers, scare or startle viewers/readers by inducing feelings of horror and terror. It creates an eerie and frightening atmosphere.

Do you like to be scared? Do you like to sit alone in your room at night watching Marble Hornets on your laptop, downloading movies off of netflix, or just watchin your own collection? Do you hate being scared, want to punch your friends in the face every time they drag you to a scary movie, or are you indifferent?

Tonight (and for however long you're willing to thread through it) You are in a horror movie.
The twist to this is that you are reduced to the most basic Horror movie tropes. You're a supernatural hunter? Then you're probably stranded in the Van Helsing era. You're a cop? You're suddenly dumb enough to go into a dark area to investigate the noise without back-up. Roll a jock? You're going to punch your way out of this situation. Play a monster? You are a soulless unstoppable killing machine that represents death ... to the movie going audience.

Even if you don't want to kill people.



1. Roll your archetype. [Cabin in the Woods taught us all about this.]
2. Roll your scenario.
3. ???
4. Profit.

[ give you a baby ]

We have the pregnancy and pregnant smut meme, but this meme is for the act of impregnation, which is a kink in and of itself, especially when lots of focus is given to in through narration and dialogue. And of course it's a versatile kink, lending itself well to consensual, vanilla, non-con, and many many other things. And there's mpreg, too!

Let's cut to the chase: this is a meme about impregnation, whether it's the doing or the getting. There are prompts for all tastes, even those who just enjoy the idea and not the reality.


HOW?
* Comment with your character, preferences, and anything else. Also include if you want your character to be doing the impregnating or want to be the one impregnated.
* Remember, this meme is focused on impregnation. Play the act itself up!
* Obviously this meme allows for mpreg and f/f preg too.
* Comment to others.
* Be respectful of others.

Long ago𝔬𝔫𝔠𝔢, 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?

Sometimes all you need is a word to spark off an idea.

1. Post a comment with your character's name, canon, and any preferences you may have (no shipping, no smut, etc.)

2. Leave the comment blank or post a word or two in the body.

It may also help if you list scenarios you would like to play.

3. Reply to other people, either with words you picked out, or words they posted as prompts for a thread.

The Period Costume Meme

Picture your muse in petticoats. Or gauzy Grecian draperies. Or really tight pants and a frock coat. Maybe Japanese court dress? Whatever, you have a costume kink, that's literally all this is about. Maybe you want them playacting, maybe you like the idea of some other character taking it all off them one layer at a time... maybe you just think it'd look good on them.

There are many reasons for a character to don period costume - a partial list is provided - and many, many eras to draw from.

Instructions

  1. Post your character in the historical garb of your choice. Go ahead and get self-indulgent with the detailed description. Or just find an icon, I guess.
  2. Indicate what scenario(s) you have in mind, whether you're open to wacky period mismatches, and any other prefs you may have.
  3. Tag some folks and get your costume kink on.

Marriage for love is a such a modern concept. In the past, marriage was
recognised as a social contract. Unions were entered into for many
reasons: to obtain property, to unite families, to carry on a bloodline,
et cetera. Whatever the reason, congratulations, you're getting married!



HOW IT WORKS:
❧ Post a comment with your character's name, canon, and any preferences.
❧ If there's a specific set of circumstances you like best, set the scene.
❧ Or leave your comment blank and let others use RNG to choose the scenario. Feel free to mix and match.
Please note the prompts below are merely suggestions and you're more than welcome to come up with your own situation.
❧ Have fun!

a sci-fi au shipping meme


The Setting )

The Premise )

The Problem )

tl;dr sparknotes this because we want to get to the meme: Sentinels and guides had a baby with YA dystopian lit. After a near extinction level cataclysm, people began to develop abilities that fall into two categories: Powered (sentinel/warrior) and Source (guide/healer). Their true powers are only revealed when they find their one genetically compatible match. A shadow government kidnaps these individuals, puts them into lifebonds, trains them for combat, then sends them out in teams to do all the dirty work. Codependency, mind-bonding, unhealthy love, and bloody murder probably ensue.

  • In the subject line, place your character name, canon, preferences, and whether your character will be a Powered, Source, or either.
  • Reply to others!
  • What will your character be doing? Being a late bloomer and only now meeting their partner? Training? On a mission? Enjoying some rare down time? Comforting their partner? Aftercare after the battle? Getting blackmailed? Climbing to the top of the ladder and infiltrating the government? Realizing their partner's getting a little too bloodthirsty? Falling in love with someone else's Powered or Source - absolute anathema. Facing certain death? It's up to you.
  • Thread.
