TEST DRIVE MEME

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
ONE: IT WON'T BE LONG NOW...
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.

TWO: CABIN FEVER
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
THREE: AN UNEXPECTED MEETING
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.

FOUR: GOOD MORGUE-NING
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?

Grey - Snowpiercer

[personal profile] silenttrainbaby 2015-10-20 10:58 pm (UTC)(link)
1)
[Grey is used to the cold. He had grown used to having warmth, it's true, where he's from, but now he's here. Now it's back. And he's trapped outside. Stupid. He'd gotten soft. He can feel his knife pressed to his back, but that will hardly help him. Being mute doesn't help. So, he pulls his tablet out and starts to type, his fingers already numb, his lungs even the sharpness of the air.]

I was here. I don't know where here is, but I am here.

[and that matters, doesn't it?]

4)
Sitting up, Grey is immediately alert, immediately sharp and ready, the metal of the table cold under him.

What's going on? He doesn't know where he is, he doesn't know where the train has gone, or anything else. The blood on his chest, over his heart, is dried and tight, but he's not dead. How that works, he doesn't understand. But he's too exposed here. He slips from the table and to a crouch, taking the sheet that was covering him with him; he can use whatever he can find. From the train, he's learned that nothing goes to waste. He's silent, wrapping the sheet around his arm, eyes moving constantly as he tries to figure out what's going on.

1! @CaptSteveRogers; text

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-21 02:48 am (UTC)(link)
[Steve blinks down at the line of text on his screen and frowns. It's a strange thing to say, out of the blue, but loneliness and stress can do that to you. 'I was here,' though. 'Was' is kind of fatalistic, and he can feel cold dread start to trickle into his stomach. He thinks for a moment, then types.]

You sure as hell are.
Hey. Are you all right?

silenttrainbaby: (what?!)

text to Curtis lookalike.

[personal profile] silenttrainbaby 2015-10-21 02:53 am (UTC)(link)
[What is all right? Grey isn't used to such questions. Life is suffering and dying. He just thought he was dead on the train and now he's going to die in the cold. He doesn't really want to do it all again.

That there is a message back surprises him. He stares for a long moment before he answers, typing slowly and carefully.]


I don't know. It's cold.
starsandtights: (Default)

thank you for the real-life lol XD

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-21 03:10 am (UTC)(link)
[Steve chews on his lip, still frowning. Cold could mean anything. Hell, Steve was cold, and he was curled up on a mattress with a musty comforter wrapped around him.]

Are you indoors?
silenttrainbaby: (looking to Gilliam)

it's true! If they meet, Grey is going to be like "how are you so clean?! And blond?!"

[personal profile] silenttrainbaby 2015-10-21 02:14 pm (UTC)(link)
[it's getting harder for Grey to move his fingers. The wind seems to bite right through his parka, which isn't saying much, really.]

No
starsandtights: (Default)

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-21 09:19 pm (UTC)(link)
[Steve takes a minute to curse loudly and ferociously. The walls are probably blushing. The Avengers would be shocked (the Howlies wouldn't). He may or may not punch a wall.

He takes another minute to figure out what the hell to say.]


I'm Steve. What's your name?
silenttrainbaby: (light!)

[personal profile] silenttrainbaby 2015-10-21 09:27 pm (UTC)(link)
[It takes Grey a while to parse that question, both because it's cold and because he's gone his whole life without being asked that question before.]

Grey
starsandtights: (Default)

i'm just going to be over here, weeping softly

[personal profile] starsandtights 2015-10-21 09:44 pm (UTC)(link)
It's very nice to meet you, Grey.

Everything's going to be OK.

what do you see

[Not that Dorian knows every spot or is good enough at working with the network to actually figure it out but he's going to try.
Edited 2015-10-21 08:46 (UTC)
silenttrainbaby: (crouching)

well, hello.

[personal profile] silenttrainbaby 2015-10-21 02:16 pm (UTC)(link)
[What does Grey see? white. What he believes are buildings, which is one of the things he's leaning against.

He's never been outside the train, though, so he's woefully inadequate at labeling anything.]


Snow. Buildings.
whiteknightnecromancer: Talking (Default)

[personal profile] whiteknightnecromancer 2015-10-21 10:57 pm (UTC)(link)
you're outside

have you tried any of the doors nearby
silenttrainbaby: (blood or bliss)

[personal profile] silenttrainbaby 2015-10-21 11:00 pm (UTC)(link)
None of them will open
whiteknightnecromancer: Talking (Default)

[personal profile] whiteknightnecromancer 2015-10-21 11:03 pm (UTC)(link)
right, don't take this wrong way

do you want to die sitting or walking
you might revive
some do, some don't
silenttrainbaby: (what?!)

[personal profile] silenttrainbaby 2015-10-21 11:23 pm (UTC)(link)
[Well, that makes no sense. Either you're dead or alive, not both.

But then, Grey seems to be alive when he should be dead, at least for a few minutes more. So he starts to walk, the tablet tucked under his arm for a while before he pauses to answer.]


What do you mean?
whiteknightnecromancer: Talking (Default)

[personal profile] whiteknightnecromancer 2015-10-21 11:38 pm (UTC)(link)
people die and they come back. not the same. but the effects wear off. you might be fine in a week. you might be dead permanently. it's all up to admin.
silenttrainbaby: (what?!)

[personal profile] silenttrainbaby 2015-10-21 11:50 pm (UTC)(link)
[That sounds suitably horrible, even for someone who grew up on the train. Grey doesn't see the point of continuing to walk, then. He doesn't reply.

What is there to say?]

[ Ava had found the house with the fireplace. She'd been lucky, but now she's inside and Grey's text makes her realize that it's possible not everyone got inside. She texts back with a good deal of dread. ]

Hi. I'm Ava. Are you out in the cold?
silenttrainbaby: (what?!)

[personal profile] silenttrainbaby 2015-10-21 11:05 pm (UTC)(link)
yes.

[It hadn't occurred to him to find a way inside. There is no inside but for the train. If he's not on the train, he must be outside.]
theredwidow: (What now)

[personal profile] theredwidow 2015-10-22 01:52 am (UTC)(link)
Can you give me any landmarks that might help me find you?

[ She's not going to go out in the cold blindly, but if he's close enough that she can find him...]
silenttrainbaby: (blood or bliss)

[personal profile] silenttrainbaby 2015-10-22 01:54 am (UTC)(link)
[Grey is the worst at this, literally. His field of experience is so bad that he isn't even sure what a landmark is.]

There are buildings
theredwidow: (Default)

[personal profile] theredwidow 2015-10-22 06:47 pm (UTC)(link)

[ Ava doesn't realize it yet, but the doors to the house are already locked. There's no getting out no matter how much she wishes. ]

Is there anyway you can get to one? Anything with a windbreak might help. I'm Ava. I don't really know what's going on here. I just arrived.

silenttrainbaby: (what?!)

[personal profile] silenttrainbaby 2015-10-22 06:58 pm (UTC)(link)
[To his credit, Grey tries a few doors and they're all locked. No matter where he turns, the wind seems to be coming from that direction. His fingers are turning to ice pretty quickly.]

i dont know whats going on either
theredwidow: (It is what it is)

[personal profile] theredwidow 2015-10-23 12:49 am (UTC)(link)
[ That's something. At least his survival instinct isn't gone yet]

Okay. You need to keep moving.
silenttrainbaby: (Default)

[personal profile] silenttrainbaby 2015-10-23 02:27 pm (UTC)(link)
[But Grey doesn't want to keep moving. He's cold and he should be dead and Gilliam isn't here. He reads the words for a moment, then pushes himself on. He always has followed direction well.]

Who are you?
