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?

Dick Grayson | DC Comics

[ Alright, so Gotham gets pretty cold. Blüdhaven is about the same, temperature-wise, seeing as it's right across the harbor. Both of those places? Do not even compare to how frigid it is in this place. And see, while Dick Grayson is accustomed to cold weather, he is not accustomed to weathering it (ha, puns, he's not too cold for those) without an insulated suit or about seven layers of jackets. Wet jeans and a thin hoodie do not a warm Dick make.

This is why it's a problem for him to be stuck outside. He'd meant to just go grab more firewood, but one thing led to another and now he's huddled up against a wall outside, thankfully mostly blocked from the wind. Most of his musing revolves around survival at the moment, but there's a stray thought here and there about Bruce and the fact that he'd probably have some stupid meditation technique that'd keep him alive through the night.

Silence isn't exactly something that gets to him, but... he might die, tonight, or at least start down that path. He keeps himself balled up, resting his tablet on his knees, and turns on a video message with a hum. He's used the function a few times already, so he thinks at least one or two people should know him as Robbie Malone. Yes, his screen name is holymalone and yes, he knows it doesn't technically rhyme unless you say it wrong but he thinks it's funny. ]

Nice weather we're having, huh? [ Great, what a great conversation starter, Dick. ]

( three )

[ Bet you weren't expecting to run face first into a 5'10 muscular hunk of a man, were you? Not that he'd ever be so boastful about it, but he is pretty thick and he has great balance. The greatest balance in the world isn't going to stop him from dropping the stacked firewood in his arms all over the floor, unfortunately, and in the ringing silence after each log clatters on the wood floor of the house, Dick looks up at the person he's just run into. ]

Well, this is awkward. [ A beat. ] This isn't your wood, is it?

[Steve has made himself as comfortable as possible in what is, if he's honest, pretty marginal shelter: a single intact bathroom in an otherwise ruined house. It's cramped, pitch black, and there's nothing to lie down on but the floor, but the small, closed room warms up quickly and hey, running water!

It's a dark, lonely night, so he's happy to hear a friendly voice.]

Oh yes, positively delightful. [dry as the desert sand]
acrobatism: (tired smile)

[ Man, Dick is jealooous. ]

Do I detect the slightest amount of sarcasm? [ He actually laughs a little, though it gets cut off with a wince as the wind blows especially hard. ] How's it going for you, though? Are you safe? Warm? [ Not that he knows whoever it is that's contacting him but hey, Dick's a superhero. It's in his blood. ]

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-20 11:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Sarcasm? Naaaaahhh. I dunno what you're talking about.

Safe as houses. 'Warm' might be overselling it, but I've had worse. You?
acrobatism: (is that right)

[personal profile] acrobatism 2015-10-22 03:01 am (UTC)(link)
Well. Neither of those, but I've had worse. [ He looks amused at least. ] I'm mostly just looking for company so I don't have to talk to myself. The silence is deafening.

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-22 04:45 am (UTC)(link)
[Not safe or warm? Steve's heart rate picks up.]

Are you... outside?
acrobatism: (heh)

[personal profile] acrobatism 2015-10-23 04:02 pm (UTC)(link)
That is the opposite of inside. [ But it's said mildly, not meanly. ]

[There's a long silence while Steve tries really hard not to swear loudly or punch things.]

That's... that's...

[He clears his throat.]

Hey. What's your name? I'm Steve.
spoileralert: surprised, neutral (oh hello)

3. omg when did you get here and why was I not informed

[personal profile] spoileralert 2015-10-22 02:38 am (UTC)(link)
[ Steph was in no way expecting to run into a man, or she might have been moving a little slower. Maybe not, now that she gets a good look at him. She can only stare for a moment before getting a hold of herself. It's frickin' cold outside. ]

What? [ Get your mind out of the gutter, Steph. ] No, no it's not mine. But I have been looking for some.
acrobatism: (winged smirk)

slams hands down on table HELLO STEPH my fave

[personal profile] acrobatism 2015-10-22 03:13 am (UTC)(link)
[ There are so many wood and Dick jokes that can be made here. Thankfully Dick does not make any of them. He thinks them, though. He always thinks them. And because tragically he hasn't met Steph in his continuity yet, he doesn't recognize her. ]

It's a good thing I'm looking to share then, isn't it? [ He kneels down to pick up some of the wood. ] I'm Dick, and yes, I know. [ His name is funny. ] Nice to meet you, miss...?
spoileralert: surprised, worried (are you for real)

/takes a bow! Any fan of Steph is a friend of mine /o/

[personal profile] spoileralert 2015-10-22 03:19 am (UTC)(link)
[ She stares some more, because maybe she hasn't met him yet in this continuity, but she's sure as hell seen him. ]

You're Dick Grayson! You were on TV, you're - [ Supposed to be dead, but that's not the best conversation starter. Fuck. Backtrack? Forward track. ] totally famous. I'm Steph, Stephanie Brown.
acrobatism: (is that right)


[personal profile] acrobatism 2015-10-22 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
[ HOO BOY. That's a great conversation starter. Dick pauses, because he can't remember the last time he was on TV. He's been caught up with the circus, with Raya, but...

But he gives her the typical Wayne Ward stunning grin. She knows who he is, so it's a good think he used his actual name. ]

Stephanie Brown - well, alright, Miss Brown, it's nice to meet you. [ He offers a hand, hoisting up the wood with one arm. ] I'm actually surprised that you know who I am. Nobody else here has recognized me.
spoileralert: confused, worried (maybe this is important)

[personal profile] spoileralert 2015-10-22 02:29 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Now. Now's her chance to sidetrack, and maybe put him a little at ease when it comes to the elephant-sized secret in the room. She shakes his hand and finds that she's still kinda staring. But hey, he's hot. ]

Yeah, alternate universes and all. We might not even be from the same universe. Probably not, actually. [ Otherwise he's be dead, right? Let's hope he's not dead. ]

Have you, uh... [ been going by your actual name, or a pseudonym? A sudden thought hits her. Alvin Draper. The mysterious Tim Drake. People from alternate universes knowing each other. ]

Do you know an Alvin Draper?
acrobatism: (unimpressed)

[personal profile] acrobatism 2015-10-23 04:01 pm (UTC)(link)
[ That gets an eyebrow raise out of him. He does, in fact, know an Alvin Draper, but they haven't... really spoken in a while. Quick thinking, and then: ]

I do, yes, but I haven't seen him in what feels like a long time. Do you go to school with him?
spoileralert: serious, annoyed (work face)

[personal profile] spoileralert 2015-10-23 05:32 pm (UTC)(link)
No, actually, I think we met at the skate park. [ But Steph doesn't really remember meeting him, and for some reason his name never showed up on the obituaries, even though she knows his body was preserved by @admin. ]

But people around here tend to have stronger connections to each other when they're from the same city.
