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?

snapsnap: (My turn)

Roy Mustang | Fullmetal Alchemist

[personal profile] snapsnap 2015-10-20 03:33 am (UTC)(link)
1. SOS Please Someone Help Me; NETWORK

[God he hates the snow. He hates the snow so much, especially when he's tripping through it while sprinting towards the closest building. But by the time he reaches a door, it's 8:01 and it's already tightly shut. Several attempts at opening it prove futile. He even tries blowing it up with his alchemy before he remembers that the countless snaps are useless here.


Whoever has control over these buildings has an interesting sense of humor.

[Which he certainly doesn't find funny, as the annoyed tone of his voice shows. He sighs to himself.]

I suppose there's no point in staying here. [Or panicking.] If anyone has ever been in this situation before, I would appreciate your advice. In addition, if anyone else is out here right now, it would be best if we met up.

[A pause before he smirks a little, if only to make light of the situation.]

After all, I'd hate for any beautiful women to be left alone in a place or time like this. I'm sure we would be able to figure something out together.

3. Great Logs of Fire; ACTION

[Roy Mustang never thought he would be so excited to see the potential for fire again. As night begins to fall, he wastes no time stacking a couple of logs in the fireplace, making sure to save most of the pile for later. He's just about to light them with a pack of old matches when he hears footsteps and promptly turns to face the source, arm and hand up in a gloved snap: a reflex.

Even if it won't do anything.]

4. Idk what I'm doing; ACTION

[The first thing he notices upon waking is that it's incredibly dark. It feels colder than usual, and for a moment he thinks he might be at Briggs, before he remembers the moments that occurred just before he lost consciousness. Right. He wasn't in Amestris at all.

He can hear his tablet urging him to leave--strange, as it generally never announced things verbally--but he gets up and fumbles his way around the room, occasionally bumping into a wall or other piece of furniture on his way out.

The change in temperature, the feeling of snow on the ground, and the sudden silence of his tablet, alerts him that he's made it somewhere else...that is still incredibly dark. He stumbles around, arms stretched out to try and find some wall to guide him, before he bumps into someone and promptly says:]

My apologies.

[Or throw something else at me!]

[Tifa jumps when Roy bumps into her. She spins around, expecting something far less worse than what she gets. And he's polite, too.

She takes a step back, giving him a bit of room. From the way he has his arms stretched out, she's assuming there's something wrong with his vision. That's obviously dangerous, especially in a place like Norfinbury. Tifa, being Tifa, can't just leave him here like this.]

It's all right.

[She hesitates. What's the protocol in a situation like this?]

I'm Tifa. Are you okay?
snapsnap: (Blind: ouch)

[personal profile] snapsnap 2015-10-21 06:55 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh thank god there's someone else here. Roy can't help the small sigh of relief when hears the sound of somebody else's voice.]

Tifa, huh? It's a pleasure to meet you. The name's Roy Mustang.

[It's not a name he's familiar with, but he'll have to trust that she's not a threat. Besides, if she was stuck in this dark place as well, they might be able to help each other out.]

I woke up somewhere, but it seems this place is bigger than I thought.

[He looks around as he regains his balance, hoping to see some sort of landmark that might tell him where he was in Norfinbury. When that proves futile, he turns in her direction again.]

Do you know where we are?
powersouls: (015)

[personal profile] powersouls 2015-10-22 01:18 am (UTC)(link)
We're near the hospital. Is that where you woke up?

[That would be... Creepy. And new to her. She thought most people woke up in one of the houses, but most of the ones around here seem collapsed or half ruined.]
snapsnap: (Blind: follow me)

[personal profile] snapsnap 2015-10-29 09:51 pm (UTC)(link)
[The hospital? Sounds about right, considering what happened beforehand.]

I suppose that would make sense, although I can't say for sure. It was too dark for me to see anything.

[He sighs, decides to change the subject before he has to explain exactly why he would wake up there. Besides, it still seems too dark for him to make out where they are right now, but it's never safe to stay in a place too long.]

Judging by the warnings my tablet was giving me, it doesn't seem like this is the best place to spend the night. It may be best to go outside and find another location as quickly as possible. Did you see any other buildings before you came in here?

[ It's true that to most people, a finger-snapping gesture wouldn't be all that threatening, but the way he moves and an arm coming up is enough for Miranda. She responds by widening her stance - greater stability in the heels she's wearing - and bringing up her arms into her own biotics-summoning gesture. It produces nothing but a faint purple light all over her body, nothing that could do damage, but it's enough for a threat. ]

-Are we going to have a problem here?
snapsnap: (He's a softie)

omg miranda!

[personal profile] snapsnap 2015-10-21 07:05 am (UTC)(link)
[Roy glances over Miranda once, analyzing her stance. Any other time, and he would have made some snarky remark about being in a cabin alone with a beautiful woman, but he knows better than to underestimate someone who's emanating a purple light. He may not be able to use his alchemy, but this place seemed to be full of surprises. Maybe there were others here who were still capable of using their abilities.

Besides, in chess, it's always best to appear as if you have the upper hand.

Roy smirks, but keeps his arm up.]

I could ask you the same thing.
cloneprincess: (08)

[personal profile] cloneprincess 2015-10-22 06:24 am (UTC)(link)
I'm not going to object to sharing a house for the evening. You lower yours and I'll lower mine?

[ Miranda's not actually sure how long she can keep the glowing up without making another move; the rules are wonky when the only thing she can do here is glow semi-involuntarily.

She plays chess the way Roy does, though, so she's not about to admit it. ]

Fighting one another usually isn't very productive here.
snapsnap: (I think you know what I mean)

[personal profile] snapsnap 2015-10-29 09:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Very well. I can't deny a request like that from a beautiful woman such as yourself.

[So he lowers his arm slowly, but the snap still remains tight at his side, and his shoulders are still stiff. Just in case.]

Sounds like you know this place pretty well. Have you been here for a while?

armoured: (silly] shocking)


[personal profile] armoured 2015-10-20 08:47 am (UTC)(link)
[Al practically skids through the front door to the house with his tablet blaring loud warnings at him, managing to get inside just before it locks behind him and shuts down for the night.]

...Wow, that was close.

[He sighs in relief, too preoccupied with his own near miss to notice he has company. That is for all of three seconds until he turns his head and is confronted by a very familiar set of fingers poised to snap.

He jerks backwards, armour hitting the closed door he's just come through with a hollow clang, unable to believe his eyes.]

Colonel Mustang?!
snapsnap: (I won't do it)

[personal profile] snapsnap 2015-10-21 07:45 am (UTC)(link)
[At first, Roy didn't know what to expect. The loud warnings coming from the tablet were a familiar sound, but they did little to ease the tension about who might be approaching.

But when he sees the armor burst through the doorway, Roy's hand lowers slightly in surprise. He had been so preoccupied with the fact that the Lieutenant or his own subordinates weren't here, that the thought of meeting someone else from home briefly slipped his mind.]


[He stares at him for a good four seconds in disbelief before he snaps out of it and raises his hand once more. In a place like this, it was best to be safe rather than sorry. When he speaks again, his tone is a little colder.]

When we were underground, we encountered a hostile woman. Tell me, what exactly did you tell my subordinate while you were protecting them?
armoured: (fight] defend)

[personal profile] armoured 2015-10-21 09:24 am (UTC)(link)
W-Wait, what are you doing?!

[His hands snap up into a gesture of surrender when Mustang raises his hand again, half convinced he's going to have to dodge out of the way of some impressive flames.

Though if Mustang does manage to use his flame alchemy, Al will definitely be picking his brains on how he's circumnavigated the ban on powers this place seems to impose on everyone.]

It's me, I-- uh--

[Geez, does Mustang never trust anyone? He is ready to trust this is actually the Colonel, but he supposes he can see the logic in checking. His mind races, but the scene is easy to see in his head. Standing in front of her, angry at more death, angry at the continued violence.]

--I said I wasn't going to let anyone else die, not when I could protect them. So many people had died already and I wasn't about to leave Lieutenant Hawkeye behind to save myself.

[Maybe not the exact words, but the sentiment at least.]
snapsnap: (May I?)

[personal profile] snapsnap 2015-10-29 09:59 pm (UTC)(link)
[Roy doesn't move, doesn't break eye contact while Alphonse speaks. Even after he answers the question, there's at least five seconds before he finally lowers his arm, content with the answer.]

My apologies.

[He sighs, his shoulders relaxing as he looks him up and down briefly to determine his state.]

Are you all right?

forfeits: (3)


[personal profile] forfeits 2015-10-20 12:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[ there are still some surprises left in this snow abyss, and Ed is traveling when he hears the too-familiar voice. it’s a voice that sends prickles down his spine, because he shouldn’t be here.

of all people, Norfinbury had to drag Colonel Roy Mustang along for the ride? It’s like a bad dream, another torture device. bad enough that he and Al had been forced into a place like this, but Amestris needed the Colonel at the very least. Ed didn’t – not here.

he’s just about to turn the feed on, to offer some help, but quickly changes his tune. ]

You could freeze to death and you're worried about women?!
snapsnap: (Don't make me laugh)

[personal profile] snapsnap 2015-10-21 08:27 am (UTC)(link)
[Well, that was a voice he was not expecting to hear, although in retrospect it seemed only fitting that Ed would be here if Alphonse was as well. Still, the thought that so many of them were being brought to this place, and incapable of using their alchemy, was a little unsettling, and only served to make this place even more frustrating.]

As I said, I'd hate for someone to be left out here alone in a time like this. [Despite the circumstances, he maintains a nonchalant, and slightly smug, tone in his voice. The sound of crunching snow indicates that he's already on the move.] Besides, the more people there are, the better our chances are at surviving these conditions.

[He pauses, the smirk growing even more.]

Not to mention the necessity of keeping each other warm.
forfeits: (10)

[personal profile] forfeits 2015-10-24 06:50 am (UTC)(link)
[ seriously how does the guy do it? the immeasurable calm and arrogance, the air of nonchalance. it's enough to send Ed's blood to a boil. bad enough he had to deal with the cold and the monsters and what have you, but now Mustang. ]

Right, just see how long it takes you to find someone to 'keep warm'.

[ because Ed's been here a while and he knows a lot of people and can easily warn them off. not that he will. for all that he dislikes Mustang's presence, he's still useful to have around. and he's from home. the fact that someone else from Amestris has arrived here is troubling. ]

Besides, you can just use your flame alchemy to keep yourself warm. [ so it's a test. does Mustang's alchemy work here, or is it gone, too? ]

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-20 10:56 pm (UTC)(link)
You're still outside?

[Shit. Steve's heart sinks. He has to smile a little at the man's bravado. Steve is suddenly and strongly reminded of Howard.]

Can't help you in the beautiful woman department, I'm afraid. Or the other thing, I'm trapped in a shed myself. ...Best bet is to dig a snow cave, probably.

[It hadn't helped anyone before, but Steve wasn't about to steal a dead man's hope.]
snapsnap: (Idiot)


[personal profile] snapsnap 2015-10-21 08:33 am (UTC)(link)

[He sighs, more out of frustration than defeat or disappointment. He's already moving away from where he was in an attempt to find shelter or something else that might help him.]

A snow cave, huh? I can't say I'm too familiar with those, but I'll be sure to keep it in mind.

[As a last resort, maybe. A snow cave doesn't sound like it'll help too much with the cold, after all.]

I take it it's not just the residences that shut down like this?
starsandtights: (Default)


[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-21 09:08 pm (UTC)(link)
They're warmer than you'd think. Keeps you out of the wind, and snow's a good insulator. Find a drift or make a big pile of snow, dig your entrance down to keep the wind out, then up and in. Make some vent holes, put something down to lie on that isn't bare snow, block the door. Light a candle if you've got one.

[Steve swallows heavily and sighs.]

'Fraid not, pal. So far as anyone can tell, any sealable door seals up tight, can't be budged. Not gonna stop you from trying, though. ...Even if I could.

[It's not often that someone literally bumps into Stein. He's recognizable enough that people usually give him a wide berth, and even if they don't recognize him he's tall enough that people notice him before walking smack into him.

He'd been hoping to get into the morgue to see if there were any bodies sitting out where he could get at them, but here's someone blundering lost into the snow. A perfect test subject.

He steadies the stranger with one hand on his shoulder. Stein smiles, and keeps his voice friendly.

That's all right.

[No, he's not actually the Sewing-Life Alchemist, he just happens to sound exactly like him.]

You look lost.

snapsnap: (Blind: ouch)

[personal profile] snapsnap 2015-11-01 04:51 am (UTC)(link)
[Roy's head snaps in the direction of Stein, taken aback by the sound of his voice. It takes him a few seconds longer than normal to process that this might just be a coincidence. After all, he had been dead just moments before. Maybe this place could bring people back to life who didn't die here as well.

But right now it's too dark to deny or confirm his suspicions. He'd have to just be careful.]

I suppose that's one way of putting it. [He sighs.] I can't see a thing in here. Don't tell me they made some sort of change to this place?
circumsutus: (best lectures)

[personal profile] circumsutus 2015-11-01 03:11 pm (UTC)(link)
Nope. [But that means that Stein's found someone just back from the dead, and apparently blinded by whatever resurrection method the Admin is using.]

Mind if I look at your eyes? [He's not actually giving Roy a chance to say no, putting a hand under the man's chin and tilting his face upwards.

There's a pause, before he remembers that oh yes, he should try to be reassuring.
] Don't worry, I'm a doctor.
