APOCALYPSE MEME


The end of the world is here. Are you ready or are you going to kick the bucket? Maybe you've been prepared for the apocalypse for ages or you're blissfully unaware. You can play it straight or for comedy (think Shaun of the Dead), but please be aware that there's likely to be triggering content within so consider content warnings!

"Whenever it’s that level of shocking darkness, I think it gets you in the store. But I also genuinely believe that it’s been a really rough year for everybody, regardless of what political side you’re on. It’s a rough time. People are angry at each other. There’s a lot of divisiveness and terror out there about what’s going to happen, and from all corners. Metal is a story that’s about things that keep me and Greg up. It’s about the ways in which you can find yourself in a story that you didn’t think was possible, and it’s much darker than the one that you thought was inevitable." - Scott Snyder

MONSTER KINK

The monster is the other, the grotesque reflection of humankind. What lives in darkness, and what frightens us. They may be horrific in appearance or beautiful in their lure, but nothing conceals that they are different from us, and thus terrifying.

So perhaps union with such beings is the greatest death wish and titillation.
Perhaps one is already one of these creatures that live beyond the pale of humanity. Or maybe a person suddenly finds themselves transformed. Or perhaps one may find themselves the lover of a monster, willing or not.


This is a meme dedicated to the kink of sex with monsters. If your character is already monstrous, well here's a meme dedicated to them! You may chose also for “body horror” where a character finds themselves transformed into one of the creatures below. Or perhaps you prefer an AU where they were always monstrous. Or perhaps you prefer your character to remain as they are, prey for what lives beyond humanity.

Warning: This is a meme intended for hard kinks such as (and not limited to): non-con, dub-con, vore, gore, snuff, bloodplay and bestiality (depending on how animal-like your monster is). Prompts and logs may be extremely triggery for rape and sexual assault. While players are free to opt out of kinks and set their own limits and boundaries it is to be understood however this meme will likely be more extreme than most. Thus this is a warning to the casual reader.


Show me what you got. ♥ )

PCAH Resigns

elf: Many Americans have all the virtues of civilized people (American virtues)
[personal profile] elf
The entire Presidential Committee on Arts and Humanities a group created by Reagan, has resigned. Politico story, with image of the letter - the first letters in each paragraph spell out "RESIST."

Text of the letter, because I couldn't find any convenient spot online with the whole thing.

"Speaking truth to power is never easy, Mr. President. But it is our role as commissioners on the PCAH to do so. Art is about inclusion. The Humanities include a vibrant free press. You have attacked both. ... This does not unify the nation we all love. We know the importance of open and free dialogue through our work in the cultural diplomacy realm, most recently with the first-ever US Government arts and culture delegation to Cuba, a country without the same First Amendment protections we enjoy here. Your words and actions push us all further away from the freedoms we are guaranteed."

So you wanna go on an adventure? Let's help you out. It's time to save the world! Or not. Something's gone horribly wrong and it's your job to fix it! Or, you know, make it worse. We're not the cops. You could fight a dragon, cure a disease, or rule with an iron fist. The world's your oyster. Tag in with your name and series, post your preferences, and play away! We're running out of time, adventurers!




LOCATIONS

1. FANTASY Sorcery, demons, monsters, knights in shining armor, magic rings you need to throw into a volcano...
2. FUTURE Technology is rampant. Maybe you have to overthrow your dystopian government or learn how to feel again.
3. SPACE Will you explore the final frontier or are you in a galaxy far far away? Those synthetics don't look very friendly.
4. MODERN Sometimes the scariest things are right outside our front door.
5. SUPERHEROES So you wanna be a superhero? Do you have what it takes to save the day?
6. APOCALYPSE The world's already ended. You're just picking up the pieces.

SCENARIOS

1. OVERTHROW An evil empire is calling the shots. A corrupt government is making your friends disappear. Fix it.

3. MEDICAL A disease is killing off people at a horrifying rate and you're trying to find a cure.
4. ZOMBIES Holy shit, is that person EATING someone? You have to escape the zombies, and FAST. Remember: aim for the head.
5. EXPLORATION There's nothing pressing about to kill everything, but you're exploring new territories. Maybe you'll find a new threat.
6. DOWN TIME A break between missions. Heal, regroup, and take care of yourselves.
7. WE NEED WHAT? You're looking for the item to end everything. The BFG, the one ring, the conduit. Whatever it is, you have to find it first.
8. WE MIGHT DIE TOMORROW It's time for the final battle. Are you ready? Are your friends, troops, loved ones? Make your speech or find someone to spend your last night with.
9. MY ARCH NEMESIS You know who the villain is. So does everyone else. They're the Ganon, the Sauron, it doesn't matter. You have to win.
10. THE WORLD WE'RE SAVING HATES US You're trying to save the world but everyone hates you; you're doing it anyway because you need to, it's the right thing to do even if no one cares if you live or die.
11. WE HATE THE WORLD WE'RE SAVING You hate EVERYONE. You hate the world and wish it would go down in flames but you live here too, or you have to because nothing you do to stop trying works. Whatever.
12. WHY WOULD I SAVE IT? You're the villain in any of the above scenarios and then some! Go wild!

Just a friend

the best friends to more meme
There's nothing in this world quite like a true, blue best friend that you can rely on. They've been with you through thick and thin, good and bad. You want to have fun? They're the first person you look for, because they always know how to bring the best out in you. You need a shoulder to cry on? Don't worry, they're already here. You need to bury a body? ...you should probably reconsider your priorities, but you know your best friend will be there with a shovel and a smile. You'd never ruin this friendship for ANYTHING in the world.

Something's brewing that may do just that, though. One of you has feelings, has for a long time, and that spells trouble. Unless you keep that to yourself and remain platonic, of course. Repression in this case might be a good thing.

Only it's too late. The cat's out of the bag, whether it's by confession or by accident. What to do, what to do? If feelings aren't returned, can you turn down a friend, or will you force something that isn't there just to make them happy? If feelings are returned, will you risk changing the perfect thing you have?

  • Comment with your character, canon, preferences, and which side you may want to play. IE, the one with feelings, etc. Also, mention if you'd like things to be more fluffy or more tragic.
  • Respond to others. Assumed CR and AU it up if need be.

put some liquor in it.

the drinking meme
① ( SOBER ): whether it be because you haven't had a chance to find the right glass for you or because you aren't much of a drinker, you're starting to look like the only one in the room who's managed to resist the temptation to throw their heads back and guzzle a few choice bottles. time to enjoy standing awkwardly in the corner while everyone else has fun, or tend to some friends who may have had one too many.

② ( TIPSY ): oh, geez. when did they decide to make moving floorboards? and since when has it been so darn difficult to walk in a straight line? you've only had a glass or two, but it's already starting to get to you, nipping at your nose and making you feel all bubbly and warm inside. hopefully this isn't the start of something worse.

③ ( DRUNK ): you may or may not have just made a series of terrible decisions and suddenly find yourself not remembering a single one of them. maybe that girl over in the corner of the room who hasn't turned your way all night looks like a nice target for a spontaneous game of fisticuffs, or that guy over there is probably, maybe, your next husband. maybe you're one of the unfortunate ones having to rush to the bathroom and get acquainted with the white tiles for a while? hopefully there's someone level-headed enough to hold your hair back for you.

④ ( HUNGOVER ): who invented noise and why did they make it so painful? whether you've managed, by some miracle, to wake up in (a) bed, or you find yourself sitting up from under the kitchen table with someone else's underwear on your head, the splitting headache you've got going for you isn't showing any sympathy for your overnight activities. better get to drinking a few litres of water and crawling under a few blankets for the day.

'Eye of the Beholder'

cyberghostface: (Two-Face)
[personal profile] cyberghostface posting in [community profile] scans_daily
 

'Eye of the Beholder' from Batman Annual #14 is probably the most important modern Two-Face story ever written. This was the issue that fleshed out Harvey Dent's origins and redefined his characterization as someone who was already struggling with his psyche before the acid hit. A lot of the material here was later used in 'The Long Halloween', the animated series as well as The Dark Knight.

Unfortunately this has yet to be reprinted by DC, either in trade or in digital format. I imagine the latter will happen sooner or later (Comixology is constantly adding old comics to the archive) but DC's treatment of this has always puzzled me.
