FEBRUARY TEST DRIVE MEME

Test Drive Meme




Prompts

Arrival: So you've just arrived in Nyoi-Cho. Congratulations! You must be so excited about having your wish granted. Or maybe you're upset that the result wasn't quite what you expected? If that's the case, then that's too bad! There are no take backs and no redoes, so you're stuck with what you have! Maybe you should have been more careful about how you worded that wish...

Oh well. There's no use in dwelling on it. You're a magi now, and that means adjusting to a whole new lifestyle! Maybe one of the townspeople can help you out.

Only... they're acting a bit strangely, aren't they? They're all too happy to show you around, but there's something unsettling about the way they're behaving. Almost cheerfully dissonant. Any questions about the history of the town are met with blank stares and brief silence, before they plaster a smile onto their faces and change the subject. Any attempts to tell them about your duties as a magi or anything else that relates to the magical will get similar reactions.

Isn't there anyone normal here that you can talk to at all?

Home Improvement: The houses that the magi are given access to really are something, aren't they? There's almost no limit to what they can do! Why don't you create the house of your dreams, or maybe recreate and relive your favorite childhood scenes? Invite some spectators over to marvel!

A Day in the Life: Everyday hero by day, magician by night! You've got a busy day ahead of you and no time to waste! Maybe it's school, or maybe it's work, maybe it's both! Being magical doesn't make you exempt from paying those shopping bills!

Practice makes Perfect: This magi stuff sure looked easier on TV. You don't understand your power and it's frustrating trying to use it in combat when you don't get it. Maybe it's time to just take some time to figure this out. Good thing none of the citizens can see you when you transform! Test out those new skills, cause a little mischief, or be the helping hand someone might need!

Fighting Evil by Moonlight: Things aren't as easy as they looked on TV. Nightmares are tough and there's real danger in there. There are victories... but, some are not as clear cut as others. Is today a successful attempt, or are you on your last legs standing up against an enemy far stronger than yourself? Do you forge on ahead, or do you retreat?

A Corrupted Soul Gem: You neglected to take care of your soul gem, and now you don't feel quite yourself anymore. You feel like you're losing your sense of self - all you seem to be able to focus on is your old regrets and past failures. What's happening to you?

A Dreadful Nightmare: You had an absolutely horrid day. As you drift off to sleep, your mind dwells on all the injustices you've had to endure. In response, your bed swallows you up, and your room shifts into a horrific Nightmarescape. What sort of Nightmare are you? What kind of Nightmarescape do you create? Hopefully your fellow magi can stop you before you cause too much damage!

A Witch's Curse: A Nightmare is nothing in comparison to the horror of a Witch. Perhaps you've been bitten by her sweet kiss, now only able to see the futility in all you do. Perhaps you've just witnessed one of your most beloved friends succumbing to the darkness in their heart, forsaking their wish for a curse - or perhaps you have decided to do it yourself. One thing is for sure... there's no turning back now.

Wildcard: Feel free to use any information from the FAQ or the World Info page to make your own prompt!

Noriaki Kakyoin was, admittedly, not often well known for either his patience or control of his temper. And while he usually managed to have a handle on both in a high-pressure situation like everything Nyoi-cho decided to be 24/7, there were some things one could not possibly prepare for.

Like a giant fish flying quite literally out of left field to smack him directly in the face before promptly disappearing into thin air. Clearly, he'd chosen the wrong house to walk a bit too close to today. The redhead staggered from the impact, glasses knocked off scarred eyes and clattering to the sidewalk as he tried to catch up with what on earth had just actually happened.

"What th--who the hell even thinks to throw a fish?!"

Apparently, the people around here just didn't understand how difficult it was to fish indoors.

"I didn't throw it."

Noctis felt his response was accurate enough - technically, the fish wasn't thrown. Not on purpose. At most, he could be blamed for accidentally leaving the window open and giving the fish the opportunity to go sailing out of it to the great outdoors just once before unfortunately disappearing. But since he didn't throw the fish, the prince holds his ground, hands on his hips as the stranger outside cusses at him.

"I was catching it. And it got away."

"I--you--"

You know what? Fair enough. Kakyoin pressed a hand to his face to collect himself before looking away to locate his glasses.

"What on earth are you doing fishing in there?"

Some people just don't get how difficult it is to fish indoors, apparently.

"I'm fishing."

It seems like the obvious answer - technically, the guy answered his own question in the first place, so as far as he's concerned Noctis is just repeating after him at this point - but it really is a bit of an odd situation to stumble into in the middle of an otherwise ordinary day. He can get behind that.

"Didn't mean to startle you. Sorry about that."
