THE HANDCUFF MEME

It's up to you decide how you got handcuffed (heck, the cuffs might have magically appeared out of nowhere), but what your characters have to deal with next can be decided using a handy RNG. Your options are:



1. Fight Night

Boy this handcuff thing came at a bad time. For whatever reason, you have to fight thugs, mooks, supervillains, space aliens, jetpack Nazis, talking gorillas, or some other threat. Maybe you're doing it to save innocent lives, just to save your own skin, or to stop someone from setting all your stuff on fire. Whatever the reason, hope you two are good at teamwork!

2. Jailbirds

The reason for those handcuffs? You just got arrested, and now you're in the back of a patrol car, the paddywagon, or the space patrol hover-car being taken to the police station. What you did to wind up that way is up to you. It could be something as innocent as a prank gone wrong or something as dire as the both of you having been accused of murder--or perhaps even framed. But now you have a nice little drive and an even nicer booking to look forward to. You might as well get to know you you're handcuffed to or have that nice little heart-to-heart you've been planning on having--you're going to be stuck together for a while.

3. A Very Important Date

One of you has a meeting or appointment to get to and it can't be postponed NO MATTER WHAT. That date with that wonderful guy you met the other night? That job interview? Meeting the parents of your significant other? Your little sister's violin recital? One of you has to go right this moment and hope you can explain away the predicament or hide that you're attached to each other. For a bonus challenge, both parties can have somewhere important to go and have to duke it out over who has to miss their big, important thing.

4. Party Crashed

That was some party! ...who has the key to these? You had a wild night last night, so wild that the other people around you are wearing lampshades on their heads and have wangs that were drawn in Sharpie on their faces while they slept. You've woken up handcuffed to either someone you know or a total stranger, and you have no idea how you got that way. Let's hope you can find the key among all the discarded beer cans and stale pizza.

5.On the Run

The most dangerous game of all...is man! Or something. You're handcuffed together racing through an island wilderness, hunted by evil people, aliens, or dangerous wildlife, trying to work together to save your own lives. Or perhaps you're on the run from the police, accused of a crime you didn't commit. Maybe you're trying to escape from the clutches of an evil dystopian government that plans to brainwash you, or you made a break for it and escaped from a chain gang. Maybe you're being forced to run a deadly obstacle course together on live television, or being chased through a haunted town by monsters. Whatever the case, you're stuck together, you're on the run, and you have to make sure both of you get through it or neither of you will.

6. Escape

Not only are you handcuffed, you're dangling over a deathtrap together. Or locked in a room, waiting for a murderer to come back and kill you both. You're in some sort of situation where you're trapped, and escape is all the more complicated because of how you're handcuffed together. Hope you can pull a Houdini before that serial killer comes back!

7. Interrogation

You're cuffed somewhere so you can't get away, because the other character has some very, very important questions. Remember: Ve haff vays of makink you talk.

8. Wildcard

Go nuts and make a situation up! The only requirement? Handcuffs.

[Excuse you? Who is a damsel?

Britannia watches him try to reach for the chain and eyes him uncertainly. She'd try as well, but she doesn't want to undermine his efforts and send them both tumbling into the vat as a result. So, she watches. Uneasily. (Her lack of faith should be noted.)]


I thought a hero was supposed to evade capture.

[That would be you of course! :D

Also note that he finds your lack of faith disturbing.]

Haha! You've never watched James Bond, have ya! [Now that he's got a hold of the chain he started to attempt to swing them both to safety.]
countryofassholes: (because that's all i'm capapble of.)

[... refuted.

Get out of here Vader.]
... Alfred, this isn't a movie.

[She feels the need to point this out as he starts swinging them and... what was that loud creak? A distinctly rusted metal starting to give creak?]

Alfred, maybe you should stop.

[You can't refute the truth.

Vader says haters gonna hate.] Nope! It's better than a movie!

[Creaking is a good thing! He's going to keep swinging them away from the death trap.]

Hahahaha! Why!? [Two things are clear here, one, he's having fun. And two, he might be a bit insane.]

[It's not truth. :'<

Not if the chain breaks before they get enough of an angle to swing away from vat. Or if it breaks at the wrong time. Which it sort of looks like it's about to do. And good god, he's trying to commit suicide and pull her down with him.

With a softly muttered curse, she's wrapping her hand around the chain of the handcuffs that are looped around the hook chain that's holding them up and placing her feet against his chest. Without a word, when they make another swing on her side, she kicks off his chest (completely without remorse, it should be added) and making a grab for the rail of a nearby ramp.

Miraculously, she gets it.

Not so miraculously, she probably won't be able to hold Alfred's weight when the chain finally goes.]
heroiccia: (You let the wrong words slip)

[It is so the truth! You're a lady in distress after all!

Hey now! Good going ruining his plan like that! Especially when the chain breaks and the guy who would have been able to save you is now tugging you downwards.

So, shame on you. D<]
