Forever livid
[up][up]Either version of Valentine runs like crazy. Attention is the last thing a professional thief needs.

[up]Vash Vega is exremely relieved! Having a Healing Factor sucks when you can feel both the intial wound and the painful healing process.

Your charater finds out that an orphan kid has snuck into their home

My teacher's a panda
Benny checks everywhere. When he doesn't find them, he shrugs it off and asks his parents for some new clothes. He was beginning to become bored of his old clothes anyway.

Edward becomes very suspicious. Somebody, some where, must be planning something diabolical with his clothes. But what? What else might they take? And who else is going to begin losing their clothes? When will the insanity end!?!

Catherine gathers everybody together in a meeting to discover just exactly what happened to all their clothes, refusing to let anybody leave until the mystery is solved.

Your character discovers a treasure map, but the treasure appears to be hidden in an incredibly dangerous and forbidden place. Do they go for it?

Responsible adult
Ran: In a word or two, hell yes. She Jumped at the Call once before, and she's not about to stop.

Cora: In a word or two, hell no. She's OK with adventure, but she's only going to risk it if there's lives and livelihoods on the line, not for petty resources. She's a bit of a Knight in Sour Armor, but the knight part is still there.

Your character is watching a new movie (or play, as appropriate) that just came out, but notices that it bears a suspicious resemblance to their life.

Malcolm: Remark bitterly about his situation, maybe crack an unfunny joke and then leave.

Your character is offered great power but at the cost of their freedom. Do they accept?

[up][up]...Wow. Thinks Cassia. Yet another one. I wonder if they'll get the story right this time?

(this one was amazingly accurate to a plot point)

[up]Meda refuses, unless the power would help her in her goals.

You're character is told to commit a crime by someone in authority.

Writer's Welcome Wagon
  • Justice Peterson: Since he's a Serial-Killer Killer...If the victim is a criminal, he'll comply and just write down his or her name. If the victim is innocent, he'll refuse and write the authority's name down.
  • Ian Down: He'll go to the victim, lure him or her away, and bite down on the victim's neck.

Situation: Your character finds a large mecha in a warehouse. How would your character react and do?

[up][up][up]My characters have already sold their freedom for the means of survival, power would be a nice bonus.

[up][up]It would depend on the crime. There is no real law anymore.

[up]Ghost would either ignore it as non-useful, or radio base to ask if there are any parts they want.

Your character has to get married to someone (anyone)in the next 3 days or face extreme consequences.

Kiyoi: He'd rather be shot himself than dirty his hands.
Akura: If it's a child, he'll gladly let himself be killed in their place. If it's a teenager or adult, he'd kill them.

Your character is talking to someone, and it just dawned on them that the other person thinks they're an idiot.

Great men are forged in fire. It is the privilege of lesser men to light the flame.
Heavy Metal continues the conversation and is happy they think of it as an idiot. People tend to underestimate you when they think your an idiot.

Situation: Your character's arch villain has come back from the dead and formed a league of evil.
I've faced demons, heroes, and monsters. Come then, hero, finish me!

@Philosopher's: Ashte flashes out a slasher smile. It's not everyday that you get to kill your most hated enemy twice in one lifetime.

@Crystal Glacia's: Alastor kill's them all. Better be safe then sorry.

Your character is captured and taken to an undeground arena, where they will be forced to fight to the death. How do they escape from their predicament?

Cora: Mustering the need to protect all of the people forced to fight against their will in the arena, she can probably Transcendantly Banish the arena creators and lead the people out.

Ran: Righteous fury.

The next character has someone show up outside their window at night to serande them with a homemade love song. Badly.

That's a very guy thing.

  • Marla: She'd pelt a stone at him, 'cause she's taken.
  • Lien: She's taken, too. She'd throw some clothes on so she looks somewhat presentable, thank him for thinking of her, then politely turn him away.
  • Bianca: Think about opening the window or something for a little bit, then decide on pretending she didn't hear him due to the awkwardness.

The IRS (or the equivalent of tax collectors in your 'verse) tries to embezzle several thousand USD (or other similarly large amount in your 'verse's currency) out of your character.

Serenade...

Tash: Wonders what the fuck Riff could possibly want so late and lets him in to get him to shut up.

Riff: Runs to Tash's house and hides in terror because only one person in his life would do that.

Oops, I'll do that one too I guess.

The IRS...

Tash: Reminds them why he's the former high priest of the god of magic and the former head of the mage's college.

Riff: Doesn't have that kind of money and may very well be forced to pull some strings. Most likely Tash would deal with it though.

Your character is being audited. How do they feel about it?

  • Julia: Appreciate the gesture and find it sweet, but politely ask they not do it again.
  • Alice: Break a few of her paramour's limbs and leave them to crawl away. Second time, also inform them she will kill them if they repeat their show. Kill them if it's the third time.
  • Isaac: Pelt them with garbage until they left, or were knocked unconscious by an overly large piece.

[up][up]
  • Frank: Go public with the story. Such injustice cannot be allowed to stand!
  • Sigmund: Go public with the story. Anything to fuck over the IRS.
  • Isaac: Give Alice the name of the IRS agents responsible, let her deal with the rest.

[up]
  • Frank: Sigh, grin and bear it. Such is the price of living in a civilized country.
  • Sigmund: Do a lot of bitching and moaning, offer some bribes, make sure all his tax havens and loopholes are still operating.

A drug dealer approaches them on the street, mistakes them for a frequent customer, and hands them a package full of extremely high-quality cocaine.

  • Vince: Looks him in the eye in hopes that his own red eyes will scare the shit out of him enough to get him to go away.
  • Matthias: Keep walking, 'cause he's blind.
  • Elijah: Stare at him weirdly, then shake his head.
  • Raphael: Cry and flee.

Somebody's trying to mug your character(s) on the street.

Nice Guy
Let's see...
  • Ryan: Calmly reach for his wallet, then swiftly disarm the mugger and beat him senseless.
  • Jason: Calmly hand over the money and get a reimbursement from his bosses later.
  • Nicole: Grudgingly hand over the cash.
  • Bill: Kick the mugger in the balls and walk away.
  • Janice: Hand over the cash

  • Marcus: Pull a gun on the mugger and arrest him.
  • Gus: Panic and shoot the mugger. Miss anything that will actually kill him.
  • Seth: Stab mugger through the shoulder, pinning him to the nearest wall. Make various painful but nonlethal cuts on the mugger's chest. Slash his throat. Wipe the blood off the knives and walk away calmly. Inform anyone who asks that any further questions will be treated as challenging the authority of a CIA official and will constitute treason.

A group of terrorists seize a high rise apartment building that the character(s) is/are staying in.

[up][up]Both my protagonists live in Japan so I figure shock would be the default reaction.

My College Student, would likely hit the floor and cower.

My Villain Protagonist would likely try to dodge the bullets using enhanced speed and find cover.


[up]My college student would have his own wizard friend send them back.

My Villain Protagonist would try to use his super-powers to shape the world to his liking, in a setting where people were more likely to believe in magic.

The police (or whatever authority exists) bust down your characters door and arrest them for some kind of horrible crime they didn't commit. How do they react?
