The Blind Date Meme

Your character wasn't planning on an evening out. They might have had paperwork to do, they might have wanted to go home and get some sleep. They may even have been plotting world domination.

It's a shame things never work out that way, isn't it?

They find themselves in a restaurant, quite unexpectedly. They have no idea how they got there and to make matters worse, there's someone sitting across from them.

- Make a comment showcasing your character's initial reaction to the situation.

- Other characters comment to that as the other half of the blind date- it doesn't have to be someone they know in-series. Still more may crop up as the evening progresses, though whether or not they're part of the date or there for some other reason is entirely up to you.


NOTE: Since some characters are likely to try and wriggle out of everything before it gets interesting, feel free to be creative in coming up with ways to frustrate their attempts to do so.

Fireworks Pictures, Images and Photos  
There's a bonfire blazing away merrily with a guy on top, and a ridiculous amount of firework boxes stacked somewhere well away from the flames. Off to one side is a tableful of skewers, roastable food, tin foil-wrapped potatoes and soup. A stereo's sitting in the corner and playing a mixture of frankly ancient pop songs, and some particularly burly men are discussing the possibility of a tar barrell race.

It's also seriously cold.

1. Set off any number of fireworks you wish, but do try not to set fire to anything else.
2. If you have a bonfire night tradition not listed here, feel free to make use of it.
3. Have fun!


I really need a drink...
by Dr. John H. Watson (perfectlysteady)

"Most people blunder around this city and all they see are streets and shops and cars. When you walk with Sherlock Holmes, you see the battlefield..."

Life seeing the true face of London can be an adventure. Sometimes, however, at the end of the day all one really wants to see is a stiff drink...

Two People Walk Into a Bar
A Glimpse into the Night Life of...

The basic idea of this scenario is that your character has finally finished a long day of deducing, detecting, policing, or organizing criminal affairs as usual. Whatever it is they do, on this particular evening, they have decided to blow off some steam in their favourite spot.

Is this place a bar in a swanky hotel? A nightclub? A corner pub?

That's for you to decide.

Choose your place and your poison and try and relax while you can.

Who knows who you'll run into...

-Post with your character, tell where they are (setting) and what they are doing there
-Prose or RP-format welcome as far as I'm concerned
-Remember the PG-15 rating rule for the overall comm (I don't want to get in trouble), but feel free to explore the effects of drinking moderate or copious amounts of alcohol and what you may or may not say to or do with whomever you bump into...

This idea struck me earlier and I'm just hoping that someone else likes it as much as I do.

The Trapped in a Lift Meme

Your character steps into a lift/elevator for whatever reason. Someone steps in with him or her, and the door closes. It creaks up a few floors.

And then it stops. The emergency button shocks anyone who touches it.

Well, shit.

- Make a thread with your character in the trapped elevator. (Assume someone is already in there with them.)
- Another player joins them! And now you know who you're trapped with.
- Hopefully everyone no one loses their clothes or a limb.
- IC awkwardness/extreme hatred/sexual tension/anything else is encouraged.

Jim likes texting

[There's crime to do and people to kill, but lately it's been so very monotonous. To put a pause on the boredom, Jim pulls out his mobile and sends Sherlock a text.]

     Hey, sexy. Missing you.
     Daddy will have another game for
     you soon.

[He then sends the following to John.]

     Did I ever tell you how cute
     you looked in that parka?
     We should play dress-up again

[Duplicates welcome. If Jim didn't text you, feel free to text him for whatever reason you like!]

[Irene Adler isn't a villain. She's just drawn that way.]

[In fact, right now, she's behaving decidedly un-villain-like. She's in a cafe, reading a book. Granted, the book is on forgery in the early 21st century, but perhaps she simply has eclectic tastes.]

[please feel free to interrupt her.]

When we dream alone, it is only a dream. When we dream with others, it is the beginning of reality.
-Dom Helder Camara


For once it doesn't happen when your character opens a door or turns around or blinks. This time it's when they finally close their eyes and sleep. Maybe it's well-deserved rest, maybe they only closed their eyes for a second (honest!), or maybe they don't normally sleep much at all and this is a rare lapse for them.

But however it happened, they're asleep now and dreaming.

It might be about home, or some kind of wish fulfilment fantasy, or a nightmare. There's nothing unusual in the dream itself, per se. What is strange is how they might find that there are other people in the dream with them...

- Make a comment outlining your character's dream - the setting can be anything you like.
- Visit other people's dreams - multiple threads are encouraged; if you can't break continuity in a dream, when can you?
- Characters are free to either be unaware they are dreaming or realise it however, due to dressing room magic, they cannot wake up.
- Dreams can be as silly or realistic as you like, and powers, etc. are okay as long as they’re okay with the people you’re threading with (i.e., no godmodding).
- Action, dialogue-based and prose-style comments are all more than welcome.
