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!

Even though he's trying to keep reminding himself of it, Noctis has the occasional moment where he forgets that not everybody is from the same world he is, and that things like microwaves and stoves and otherwise ordinary kitchen appliances are not always ordinary household objects to everyone else. At the very least, he figures it probably should help the situation some when he doesn't always know how to use them himself - not without proper supervision or otherwise disastrous results, of course.

"Think we'd get along, then," he answers, glad that there's not really any reprimand for the fish tossing and they can just talk about ... fire, apparently.

"You do all your cooking over a campfire, huh? You hunt, or does stuff to cook just randomly appear in your house too?"

"I wish we could hunt, but we are trapped in this city and there isn't a whole lot of challenge in going after rabbits and squirrels in the park," Diarmuid rolls his eyes and sighs. "Most of the time it's putting together things I get from a store or have generated by the house. There are a few good restaurants I like going to when I'm not cooking myself. I wonder..."

Is he seriously thinking of changing the inside of his house so it becomes a forest he can hunt in? He just may be doing so, even if it would drain a lot of energy from his soul gem. It would be worth it.

Well, that much was certainly true. Not much meat on smaller creatures, and there were tricky prey for hunters - speedy, quick to hide, and small targets in general. Though Noctis can't help feeling just a little disappointed that there's no opportunity for hunting here, but at the same time, he wonders if it'd even be any fun at all if he was out hunting monsters on his own without his friends.

But now's not a good time for moping about it, so he straightens up, and tries to keep that thought from his mind for a while.

"Now restaurants, I can do," Noctis answers with more confidence, deciding not to think for the moment about how he's supposed to afford a restaurant dinner here. "Whatever it is that gets someone else to do the cooking instead of me."

"Well, you are in luck then. For a seemingly small town, there are quite a few nice cafes and restaurants. When I have the money, I tend to treat myself to a new one since I am so unfamiliar with modern foods," he loves trying new things. Every week it seems like he finds a new favorite something or other.

"What are your favorite foods? I'll see if I can point you in the right direction."
