Test Drive


If you'd like to apply to Snowblind and would like to test the waters first or get a sample set up for your application, this meme is for you! We've even provided some prompts for you to use if you want (but feel free to make up your own). Here's how it works.
✭ Reply to this entry with a character you're considering apping into the game. You can include the name of your character and the fandom in your subject line.
✭ Comment around to others on the meme, whether you're in the game already or not.
✭ Now you have a sample ready for your application!
✭ So go reserve and apply when reservations and applications are open.
✭ Seriously, do it.

Network Prompts
Well, you made a mistake. You spent too long searching around, or you ran outside near the end of the day for just one more thing, and now you've been locked out. You can search around all you want, but the best shelter you can hope for is pressing against the side of a sealed up building. You do still have your tablet, though. Maybe someone on the network can give you some advice, or at least some comfort while you wait for hypothermia to set in.

Maybe you didn't want that mistake of getting caught outside to happen again, but now you've ended up staying too long in one location, and cabin fever has set in. Maybe you're taking to the network to try and ignore the hallucinations. Maybe you want to tell everyone that you've figured out they're all in on your kidnapping. Maybe you ended up wandering off and now you'd really like to know if anyone can check back in the place you were at for your pants.

Action Prompts
You're going about your business searching what seems like it might be an especially promising house--it's fully intact and there's even a working fireplace with some wood! It looks like someone else has the same idea, though, and you've run into them in the middle of your search. Do you share the potential wealth or try to kick them out? On the other hand, maybe you know who this is, or maybe you're just glad to actually see another person for the first time in ages.

You've just woken up in a morgue after dying in one unfortunate way or another. You have no idea where you are beyond that, but your tablet is insisting you can't stay here, so you should probably get out of here pretty quickly. Of course, bringing people back from the dead isn't a perfect science, so you're missing something important to you. Maybe you've lost your voice, maybe you can't remember where you're from, maybe you can't remember where you are right now. It looks like someone else is nearby, though. Maybe they can help you out?

Koriand'r / Starfire || DC Comics || cw: nudity

II Video/action

Hello! I am Koriand'r, from the planet Tamaran, in the Vega system. Have I said that already? [ The very orange woman's very green eyes don't seem to focus properly, and she glistens with sweat. Which is strange, because she seems to have stripped completely naked. That's the easy assumption, of course, when you can see most of her naked breasts on the camera. ]

I have now been in this residence for eight days, and it seems to have changed a great deal. I do not believe it was this shade of pink before. I am concerned that my weakened physiology may have been compromised, resulting in hallucinations both visual and auditory in-- yes?

[ She glances away, as though somebody has called her name. ]

Yes, I'm coming.

[ The camera drops, and the network is sadly shown only a very blurred view of Kori's very naked body before it focuses again on her calves as they walk away. ]

III Action

Kori was having an interesting time with clothes. It was very difficult to find anything that fit, and nothing in her life prepared her for making sewing alterations. She had only just found some long fabric, and was finally able to attempt tying a skirt around her waist. To her profound dismay, she couldn't get it to hang any lower than her knees. She was still stuck in the men's pants she had been fortunate enough to find on her first day. She was beginning to fear she would die of exposure, having arrived in clothes not in the least suited to this weather in her newly vulnerable body.

Leaving the 'skirt' tied over her pants, she finally discovered the fireplace and yelped with delight. She was starting a fire when the door opened.

"Oh, hello!" Her attention didn't stray from the task at hand - a tiny flame, beginning to catch.

"Forgive me, I was just preparing a lovely fire." She stood to smile at the stranger, relieved to find it wasn't a monster. She would have been polite either way.

"It should be large enough to provide warmth soon. In the mean time, would you like to share body heat?"

((oh god a Kori, YES. XD))

As Steve cautiously opened the door and looked in, he had just enough time to register that 1) someone was crouched by the fireplace, and 2) someone was kind of... orange, but not particularly monstery. Then she stood up and faced him and OHGODBREASTS. Steve quickly averted his eyes, clearing his throat.


Steve had enough presence of mind to shut the door behind him.

"Sorry, I, uh... I didn't mean to burst in while you're, um. Exposed."
speaksdolphin: (smile)


[personal profile] speaksdolphin 2015-10-20 01:56 am (UTC)(link)
[ bear with me this is my first ever thread with her ]

Exposed? Did he mean exposed to the elements? She was certainly that, for a moment. She smiled reassuringly at the very handsome human man.

"It's alright, the door is closed now, so it should become warm very quickly. See?" Sure enough, the fire was starting to grow. It was one of the skills she learned while enslaved that she hadn't needed in quite some time. Without her powers she would be using her firestarting skills often.

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-20 02:08 am (UTC)(link)
There was a very fascinating spot on the ceiling, near the corner. It seemed the safest place to look, for now.

Steve blinked a few times, baffled by her response. OK, let's try a different tack.

"Would you like me to... turn around? While you get dressed? Or, I could go into the next room..."
speaksdolphin: (chinhands)

[personal profile] speaksdolphin 2015-10-20 02:15 am (UTC)(link)
Ah, she had seen this sort of behavior before. He was embarrassed by her state of undress - which was strange, because she was wearing a sheet-skirt, pants, and the last clean top she had from after the hurricane. Was that not sufficient? Humans were so strange with their ideas about their own bodies.

"I have very few clothes. I was given a coat when I was brought here, but it isn't very comfortable. Please, come sit by the fire. The temperature outside is dangerously low."
starsandtights: (Default)

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-20 02:28 am (UTC)(link)
((fffffff, sorry, I thought she wasn't wearing a top, or maybe I was distracted by scenario 2. Can I assume her top is either slightly transparent or excessively skimpy?))

Now Steve felt slightly like an idiot. He cleared his throat again and finally turned to make eye contact.

"Right. Sorry. Let's start over."

He crossed the room to stand next to her and held out his hand to shake. "I'm Steve. It's nice to see a friendly face, I've been traveling alone for a few days."
speaksdolphin: (grateful)

[personal profile] speaksdolphin 2015-10-20 02:32 am (UTC)(link)
[ Skimpy is good! String-bikini skimpy, even. ]

This was a ritual she was familiar with. She took the man's hand and shook it gently, still not entirely used to not being excessively strong.

"I am Princess Koriand'r, of the planet Tamaran. I too have been alone for many days."
starsandtights: (Default)

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-20 02:48 am (UTC)(link)

"A princess?"

Good Lord, space royalty. Well, it's hardly the first time. Steve inclined his head respectfully.

"Your Royal Highness."

He dropped his bag gratefully and inched closer to the growing fire, warming his hands.

"Thanks for sharing your fire, ma'am. Cold as hell out there."
speaksdolphin: (smile)

[personal profile] speaksdolphin 2015-10-21 12:35 am (UTC)(link)
Sadly, such euphemisms as 'cold as hell' she has heard before from her friends Jason and Roy. They taught her some of the worst of the English language. She smiles widely at Steve and sits by the fire, leaving room enough for him to sit down if he's inclined towards cuddling.

"You may call me Kori. I was very lucky to find firewood here, and I am glad to have someone to share it with."
starsandtights: (Default)

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-21 02:25 am (UTC)(link)
Steve smiled a little. "All right. Kori it is. Thank you."

Steve glanced at Kori out of the corner of his eye, weighing his options. On the one hand, he was cold, and exhausted. On the other hand, it felt awkward to get intimately close to a stranger, much less a dame—a young woman, much less a young woman stranger in a string bikini top. It's not that he hasn't seen women in string bikinis, but he generally didn't—cuddle with them.

But she did offer. And this was nothing compared to backstage on the war bonds tour.

And it was cold. There's no question, he was definitely going to huddle for warmth with the pretty orange lady, he just had to try not to be an awkward dickhead about it.

Without further deliberation, he sat down on the floor next to her, tucking his knees in against his chest and trying not to take up too much room (which is difficult, lbr). He glanced at her again, and—dear God, she really must be freezing in that top. Steve felt grateful that he'd at least arrived in leather boots, sturdy jeans, a t-shirt, and an athletic jacket, plus the coat that he'd never seen before. He started shrugging off his coat and jacket.

"Here, you must be freezing, at least let me give you my jacket."
speaksdolphin: (smile)

[personal profile] speaksdolphin 2015-10-22 02:59 pm (UTC)(link)
She beams at him.

"You are kind as well as beautiful." She would point out that he'll be cold if he gives up his jacket, but she's noticed that it would really only put them on about equal ground temperature-wise.
starsandtights: (Default)

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-22 06:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Steve flushes rather alarmingly red at the unexpected compliment. It's not as though he isn't aware that he's become somewhat of a, a sex symbol, but he's not sure anyone's ever called him 'beautiful' directly to his face. He clears his throat awkwardly.

"Really, it's the least I can do." He holds the jacket for her until she's slipped it on, then picks up his coat. "We could share my coat? I know, mine's not terribly comfortable either, kind of scratchy, but at least it would keep our backs warm."
speaksdolphin: (chinhands)

[personal profile] speaksdolphin 2015-10-22 09:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Kori shows absolutely no shame, though if she had any of that she might have shown it when he walked in on her in a string bikini.

"I would love to share your coat," she agrees wholeheartedly. "As I said, we should share body heat to maximize warmth."
starsandtights: (Default)

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-22 09:39 pm (UTC)(link)
Steve smiles a little. "Very practical," he agrees.

He arranges the coat so it's more-or-less draped over their shoulders; it's a bit of a squeeze.

Steve watches the fire, but sneaks glances at Kori out of the corner of his eye. "So, uh. Tamaran. What's that like? I'm afraid I've never heard of it. You seem familiar with Earth, though? I mean. You're speaking English, and you didn't seem shocked by my pasty, not-orange appearance, so." He smirks faintly.
speaksdolphin: (smile)

[personal profile] speaksdolphin 2015-10-22 11:40 pm (UTC)(link)
She stares at the fire, a pleased little smile on her face. She can already feel herself warming up, and Steve as well.

"I am able to assimilate languages through mouth-to-mouth contact. Do you know any languages besides English?"

She would like to learn them, and also distract him from the topic of Tamaran. She misses her home dearly.
starsandtights: (Default)

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-23 12:06 am (UTC)(link)
Steve's busy trying to figure out if she intentionally avoided talking about Tamaran, and if it's a sore subject, so he speaks without thinking about it very hard.

"I can speak French."
speaksdolphin: (kiss)

[personal profile] speaksdolphin 2015-10-23 01:10 am (UTC)(link)
Well fancy that! A language she doesn't know.

"May I?" She turns to kiss him full on the mouth.
starsandtights: (Default)

Ahahaha I do love me some Kori XD

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-23 02:22 am (UTC)(link)
Steve doesn't really cotton on to what is happening until Kori leans in close (and getting closer); he has the presence of mind to say, "UM," before freezing up entirely, and before he knows it he's locking lips with a gorgeous orange space princess.

Why does this keep happening to me?! he wonders, and the traitorous side of his brain goes, somebody upstairs must like you, pal~.. Steve's hands hover in the air before settling gently on Kori's shoulders; whether to push her gently away or pull her closer, he's not entirely sure yet.
speaksdolphin: (chinhands)

she loves you too ;*

[personal profile] speaksdolphin 2015-10-23 02:49 am (UTC)(link)
Incidentally, the time it takes Steve to start questioning his sexual philosophy is about the time it takes Kori to assimilate a language, and she releases him. Then, in passable French and with a very self--satisfied look on her face, she says, "That was very pleasant."
starsandtights: (Default)

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-23 03:10 am (UTC)(link)
Steve gingerly releases her shoulders, staring at her and trying to figure out what the heck just happened. "Je vous en prie*," he says faintly.

OK, she... she wanted to learn French, that's all. By kissing him. Maybe this was normal on Tamaran, maybe folks just walked around kissing people and learning languages. Aliens were bound to have weird cultural... things. Jane had told him all about Thor's mug-smashing incident. Don't make a big deal out of it, Rogers, she's a princess, you'll cause an interplanetary incident.

Steve clears his throat and absently pulls the coat, which had fallen down to their waists, back up to his shoulders, his gaze cutting back over to the fire. "So, uh. That seems like a useful ability. To be able to learn new languages so. Easily."

((*you're welcome))
speaksdolphin: (grateful)

[personal profile] speaksdolphin 2015-10-23 03:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Kori snuggles back under the coat herself, enjoying the lingering warmth of the kiss. She wanted to learn French, yes, but she also wanted to kiss the beautiful man.

"It is very useful. I was able to procure a job with it, by learning the language of the creatures you call dolphins." Enjoy that image, Steve.

[ The 'not being from Earth' part is what draws Jim's attention, because there's always a little part of him that hopes. He doesn't know Tamaran, though, and all thoughts of anything else are derailed when he actually looks at what's going on.


That is certainly a thing that is on the network.

Once he shakes that off, though, it's obvious that there's something wrong, and around here that's a lot more serious than seeing more than you expected to on the tablet. ]

-Hey! Hey, are you still there?
speaksdolphin: (grateful)

[personal profile] speaksdolphin 2015-10-21 12:38 am (UTC)(link)
Yes! I am still here. [ Although 'here' is the last place she would like to be, she's trying to keep a good face on it. Now if only it wasn't so hot she can barely breathe.

She returns to pick up the camera, which again moves too quickly to give an NC-17 rating. ]

Hey, look, if you've been in there for eight days? You've got to get out of there. The longer you stay somewhere, the sicker you get, and eventually you're going to go completely crazy.

[ If she isn't already, anyway; it's not looking good. ]
speaksdolphin: (worried)

[personal profile] speaksdolphin 2015-10-22 03:16 pm (UTC)(link)
I have tried, but I am unable to fly.

[ She's not completely crazy, but she is very, very feverish. ]
