I think it's about time for a new post around here. Thus, I present to you:

~The Morning After Meme~
{stolen from fountainofcod}



Your character has just had a night filled with wild, crazy, drunken partying. Inhibitions were lost, and good times were had by all; it's really too bad they can't remember any of it. They find themselves waking up in a posh hotel suite in very unmade bed, feeling peaceful and oddly refreshed (or hellishly hungover, your choice). There's just one problem—who is that next to them?!


❥ Post with your character in bed: asleep, awake, fully clothed, in the buff, in their P.J.s, in someone else's clothes, all totally up to you. …And yes, this time you DO actually have to leave a comment for each separate character you want involved—no muse lists!
❥ Other characters will respond as your character's bedmate.
❥ The two discover each other, and flailing and shenanigans ensue. (Whether or not they actually did anything other than sleep and/or cuddle a bit = up to the players--just make sure you both agree on what happened!)
❥ ?????
❥ PROFIT!




[...Just an FYI, humour is the point of this post rather than smut. "Stuff" might've happened the night before so long as both parties agree on that, but in present time, let's just have fun and keep it clean!]

[Perceptive as she is, the Princess picks up on that not-quite-offer, and she'll definitely take it. Yuri doesn't seem...well, he doesn't seem "bad" at all, though she can't quite get a sense of whether he's really "good" either...but then again, she can't always get a reading on people anyway. But Yuri seems nice, and while he also seems like the type who can easily look out for himself, being alone in a strange place can still be unsettling; they probably have a better chance of figuring this out if they work together.]

Mm! It's probably best to stay together for now, just in case.

[He offers a brief, friendly smile of agreement at that.] Sounds good.

[And since he's always sleeping fully dressed and even in his boots in all those inn scenes in-game lol model laziness, he's all ready to go... minus, again, his weapon. Yuri's not the paranoid type, but he's just so used to having it -- or at least knowing where it is -- that it's a noticeable thing out of place in his mind.

Ah, well.

He glances inside the closet, which turns out to be empty except for some spare sheets and things, before moving to the only other door -- presumably the exit.]


I doubt we're the only two being picked on, so we might come across someone else while we're wandering.

...I think, in this meme, the door is generally Locked/Unable To Be Opened. :3

[Sakura wavers for a moment while his attention is on the closet--should she go for it and just, uhm, grab them while he's not looking...? But OH, how will she get them on then? He'd HAVE to notice that, and she can't do that in front of him anyway...! But she can't...just leave them off can she...?

She gives a little start when Yuri speaks again, then hastily scrambles out of the bed, a bit red in the face at the thought of not...wearing...any, ah...b-but it's the lesser of two evils here, so while she can't help unconsciously clutching at the sides of her nightgown a bit, otherwise she regains control admirably.]


Yes, I agree. Everyone we've seen here is probably caught in a similar way.

[...Which sets her wondering about Sasuke, just a little. Who he might've ended up with...and what it might've been like if it had been him here with her, both now and last n--NO, nonono, where had that--wh-what was--n-no, how terrible to wonder that sort of thing about someone who already had someone else important to him and was just a friend...! Especially since SHE already has someone important to her as well, even if...she can't quite...ever remember who that someone is...but even so...even so...!

(Yeeeeeah, Yuri? Just...ignore the Princess standing behind and slightly to the side of you having a mini-inner-meltdown, okay. It's not exactly unusual territory for you, at least.]

yeaaaaah, I kinda figured so |D

[And he reaches for the knob, turns it -- or tries, anyway. There's a noticeable bit of noise as he rattles the thing, then tries pulling regardless... to no avail.

So after a moment Yuri turns around again, frowning.]
I possibly should have seen that comi--

[Whoop, what. He catches sight of her and frowns a little more.] You sure you're okay there, Sakura?

[1/2] IT'S MORE FUN THAT WAY AFTER ALL INNIT XD

[She's faced down twisted curses and giant snakes and evil wizards and--and all sorts of other things and yet now she's losing her composure, just from thinking about a boy? A boy who is a friend, and only a friend, and yet still makes her feel a little warm and kinda floaty, but Sasuke's not the only person who does that and sometimes all it takes is someone's magic to make her feel that way, so...so confusing...!]

........Ah? AH! Oh, yes, please don't worry about me! I'm fine, Yuri-san! I was just...thinking about something else, that's all...!

[Right, so it looks like they're stuck here for now. Well then...]

[Then Curiosity takes over, and she looks around the suite with wide eyes. Because it is pretty fancy, and there's a lot of cupboards over in that one kitchenette-like corner...]

I wonder if there's anything in there?

[The Princess doesn't really realise that she's spoken aloud as she wanders over to peek into those cabinets. It feels a little rude, and she can't help glancing around self-consciously before she opens the first one, but it's not like looking will hurt anything...]

[He sends the immovable door one last, sour look before turning his attention to Sakura's discovery.]

If there is, that's awfully generous of whoever's responsible. [A stranger for a bedmate, no memory of the night before, locked in a room... but a nice room, and maybe with stocked cupboards? Weird way of making up for things.]

lol I am clearly just making stuff up now to be mean. |D

[Too generous, really...or it would be if things were a little different. Because while the cabinet Sakura opened is well-stocked...it's also apparent by the glass(?) casing and highly-visible coin slot that this stuff ain't free.

The Princess blinks a little, then opens the next cabinet, leaving the first open...and it's the same thing inside that next one.

Turning her head, she gives Yuri a sheepish sort of smile.]


...Uhm...I wonder if my hand-bag was brought here, too...? I know I had a little money, at least. Fai-san always makes sure I do, in case I get separated from the others again.

[Yuri comes up just close enough behind her to see past her shoulder, and then steps back a little ways again. Hoo, boy, this place is going the whole nine yards, isn't it?

At her inquiry, he glances around -- but the room's a small one, and he's checked out most of it already... plus he just has A Feeling, given what they've seen so far. Since he's wearing his usual clothes, he checks his right pants pocket -- and yep, go figure, his gald satchel? coin purse? rupee bag? wtf do they keep their money in, again wallet is there.

A good thing, but it's another point of annoyance to note that the mysterious They let him keep that, but not his weapons. Kind of makes him feel like he's being forced to play house for someone's weird taste in entertainment.]


I've got mine on me. [And a glance inside shows that it seems to have all the cash he remembers carrying last.] It's enough for a couple meals back in town, so this place shouldn't be too different. [Unless some jerk out there was mean enough to spike the prices.

He nods at the cupboards.]
Take your pick. This one's on me.

Thanks, Yuri-san! I'll go find my hand-bag after this, then I'll buy next time!

[She doesn't really recognize the money symbol in front of the numbers, so she doesn't know how high or low the prices are, and most o the food isn't 100% recognisable either, but...that one there on the end looks good and the numbers are also lower than most of the others, so...]

That one, please!

[He has to smile that pleasantly-amused smile of his at that first bit. He certainly doesn't dislike her and he can't imagine not wanting to potentially spend time with his new acquaintance again in the future; he just hopes that "next time" doesn't turn out to be another random HA-MADE-YOU-PANIC joke like this one.]

Comin' right up.

[A couple coin deposits into the selected breakfast-bubblegum-vending machine contraption, and then Yuri glances over the cabinet's selection for himself, taking all of three seconds to pick something that doesn't look too outlandish. Said choice looks to be a pair of some kind of iced pastries, apparently with fruit filling or something similar in them.

And as he goes, part of his mind wanders back to his previous statement, his speculation that others have been caught in the same event; with some rather juvenile evil curious amusement, he wonders whether Flynn's been forced to partake in it, too -- and if so, how well that's going.

A moment more and he glances at Sakura again, once again focused on the present.]
Anything else?

[Since, in her mind, it's settled that she'll pay for Yuri next time, the Princess doesn't feel so bad about letting him pay this time; so she'll ask for what she wants, within reasonable bounds. And tea is always reasonable!

She looks up from opening her packet of white-powdered cake-like things to smile at him as she points at the hot drinks dispenser atop the counter.]


Tea, please!

[Of course you can never go wrong with tea -- so Yuri makes that a double order, and rather easily manages to get both steaming cups (made of some surprisingly nice porcelain), his pastries, and a cup of sugar over to the small kitchen table.

It has to be the oddest meal he's ever bought a girl and the oddest circumstances he's ever done it in, but you'd never know it from how casual he's continuing to act.

Good thing he's the kind of guy who can roll with the punches.

And yeah, he totally has enough manners to let her sit down first.]

[Frankly, Princess Sakura's about full up on "oddest circumstances"--weird things have started to become par for the course. After things like getting dropped into the middle of a virtual world or ages-old feuds between rival factions or oppressed villages desperate for aid...eating breakfast in a locked hotel room with a friendly stranger doesn't seem all that bad. She beams at him as he sets everything down, gratefully accepting the hot beverage.]

Thank you again. I'm glad I ended up here with someone like you, Yuri-san.

[He's a good person, she can tell. And Yuuko-san the Space-Time Witch would've said that this is definitely hitsuzen, wouldn't she...]

[Yuri sits, helping himself to some sugar in his tea as he looks momentarily thoughtful at that compliment? comment.]

I guess there're worse people for you to be stuck with. [A brief glance and a half-smirk say he's joking.

A sip of his tea later and he adds,]
Kinda nice eating with someone over something besides a campfire, I gotta admit. [Or a crowded inn dining area.]

[The powdery sugary things turn out to be very tasty, though also pretty messy. Sakura has to dust her hands clean before she can reach for the sugar herself.

She looks up at his comment, a little questioning until she sees his partial smirk, which earns him yet another smile in return.]


So then, Yuri-san travels a lot, too?

More than I used to, but not as much as I did. I usually just travel for guild business now.

...Or I did, before getting sucked into this town.

[She swallows a bite of doughnut, then her mouth makes a small o of impressed curiosity. She doesn't even notice the smudge of powdered sugar on her face, or if she does notice, she's not fazed or embarrassed by it.]

Yuri-san is part of a guild? What are guilds like back on Yuri-san's world?

Edited at 2012-06-09 12:04 am (UTC)

They're pretty much run like a business, in a word. Each guild specializes in some service or craft -- mercenaries, blacksmiths, you name it.

The one I'm in... well, we kind of dabble in everything.

[w-wow that's pretty amazing--a guild that's good at everything! They all must be so talented...and they must help so many people, too!]

Uwah, that's amazing, Yuri-san! I hope you find your way home soon, so you can get back to helping everyone again!

[Sakura seems to be one of those people you can't help but be in a good mood around, circumstances willing -- kind of like Estelle -- so Yuri's attitude is entirely genuine. Not that he'd make much of an effort to fake anything.]

Thanks. I'm hoping so, too.

So, what about you? Any terribly pressing matters waiting for you?

[The Princess doesn't quite seem sad, but she lowers her eyes and her usual cheerfulness is suddenly sorely lacking, replaced by a wistful sort of seriousness. ...Yeah okay, maybe she does seem a little sad.]

My friends and I were on a very important journey...so...I hope I can find them soon.

[He's in the middle of another piece of pastry when Sakura finishes, so he takes a moment to reply.]

From what I've seen and heard, journeys have a funny way of working out when they need to. [His voice is still lighthearted, but there's a slightly sobered sound about it -- a respectful shift, almost, just to show he's taking her worry seriously.]

Even if you're split up, maybe that just means you'll find something worth taking back to them when you get outta here.

Yes...that is what's always happened in the past...

[She ducks her head, a little embarrassed.]

It's just, I was never left completely on my own before when we arrived somewhere strange. I always had Syaoran-kun or Mokona with me...

And how have you been doing without them so far? [Said patiently, sounding genuinely curious.]
