Ask Me Anything!

Ask Me Anything!

Everyone has their own story, whether they're the protagonist or some measly side character, and people want to hear yours!

Just post a description of yourself in the title and let those crazy anons ask you questions.

Here are some examples:
  • Ask a MgRonald's cashier!
  • Ask someone who studies Titans for a living anything.
  • Everyone ships me with my best friend, AMA. (also, help)
  • My life revolves around pitting animals against each other, ask me about Pokemon.
  • I met Goku in a meme once, AMA.
  • Ask a guy who gets 10 minutes of screentime.

I took the most difficult decision ever and living with it. Ama.

Living with a decision bigger than our own? [Or living with her decision?]
sunnymerc: (002)

[personal profile] sunnymerc 2016-03-31 02:02 pm (UTC)(link) probably going to be a dreary subject, huh. Um. What kind of decision are you talking about?
dramaquing: (light)

[personal profile] dramaquing 2016-03-31 02:41 pm (UTC)(link)
I had to say goodbye to somebody I loved.
sunnymerc: (024)

[personal profile] sunnymerc 2016-03-31 02:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, no. I'm sorry. I should have asked about something else.
dramaquing: (timid)

[personal profile] dramaquing 2016-03-31 03:29 pm (UTC)(link)
It's okay, I'm the one who put it out there.
sunnymerc: (002)

[personal profile] sunnymerc 2016-03-31 04:02 pm (UTC)(link)
...I'd normally say something about turning your frown upside down or toss out some compliments, but...I can't think of anything to say that doesn't sound tacky.

Um. How are you holding up?

[personal profile] dramaquing 2016-04-01 10:40 am (UTC)(link)
It's okay, don't worry about it.

I'm... not sure. Everyday is different, you know? Mostly I just miss her.
sunnymerc: (014)

[personal profile] sunnymerc 2016-04-01 07:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh. Um...Do you want to talk about it?

[ she is far too used to going at everything with 'happy' cranked up to 110% so she is really at a loss despite wanting to make her feel better. ]
dramaquing: (dark neck scratching)

[personal profile] dramaquing 2016-04-03 08:31 am (UTC)(link)
I think I'd like to. I can't talk about it with any of my other friends. [And even if she could and they'd believe her, she wouldn't want to drop it on their shoulders.] It's kind of a... strange story.
sunnymerc: (042)

[personal profile] sunnymerc 2016-04-03 01:59 pm (UTC)(link)
I've got a few strange stories myself. Go on, I'm all ears.
dramaquing: (dark neck scratching)

sorry for the delay, I was deep into mass effect.

[personal profile] dramaquing 2016-04-05 08:20 am (UTC)(link)
[OOC: are you familiar with Life Is Strange? I wouldn't want to spend a lot of time having Max repeat her whole story.]

Ok... [Max takes a deep breath, trying to find the best words to tell her story. She wonders if Soleil is going to believe her, but something tells she might.

Hey, if she ends up looking crazy in her eyes, she can always rewind, no?]
The first thing you need to know, is that I have a certain... power.
sunnymerc: (046)

it's cool!

[personal profile] sunnymerc 2016-04-05 02:06 pm (UTC)(link)
(ooc: probably enough that you can hand wave it. the time travel and max kissing a girl is all that'll probably register with Soleil.)

Is it the power of being cute? Because I already knew that, heh heh.

[Look, Max seems pretty bummed and Soleil is at a loss, so she has to rely on her old standby of being an exciteable flirt.]
dramaquing: (profile 2)

[personal profile] dramaquing 2016-04-06 04:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Nope, I'm afraid you're the only one who can appreciate that kind of power. [Not that Max actually believes she's that cute, but she won't argue with the girl.]

Ok... here we go.

[And so, Max starts telling Soleil her story, starting with how she saved Chloe from death by turning back time (proof will be provided if requested). How she and Chloe rekindled their friendship after being separated for years. How guilty she felt over not having been there for her when she needed it the most. She tells her about the disappearance of Chloe's old friend Rachel Amber, and the horrible truth behind it. She talks about Kate, Nathan, Victoria, Mr. Jefferson and everything else she came to know that week. But her story always comes back to Chloe, their friendship, how her feeling blossomed, the need to try and protect her, how happy she felt despite all the other shit that was happening at the time. Finally, she tells her how "erasing" Chloe's death started a chain reaction that would eventually lead to the town's complete destruction and her decision to change the past one last time, letting Chloe die, to save everyone else.

She looks at Soleil, ready to answer any question she might have. She might have gotten teary at some points but she held it together, somehow.]

(ooc: if you need clarifications, let me know.)

Uh. Wow, that's...a lot to take in. I mean, I believe you, but...

[What else can she say? If her father had ever mentioned his own time-traveling to her, then perhaps this would be easier but as it is this is her first exposure to the subject. But even then, that's is not what she is focusing on. She is more concerned with how sad Max seems tobe.]

Um. I can't...even begin to guess how it felt having to make that decision. I doubt I could, that's for sure.

[She rubs the back of her head. For all her confidence in talking to girls, she is at a total loss as what to say to cheer up Max. In fact, she feels kind of like an ass for flirting.]

You...You and her were really close, huh?

[personal profile] dramaquing 2016-04-06 07:38 pm (UTC)(link)
I know. Sorry to drop it all on you in just one take.

[According to Max, Soleil is taking it all very well. Although she guesses shock might be a factor in her reaction, it could be too much to process properly on the spot.]

I would have never believed I could either... [She pauses for a moment.] Sometimes you just have to.

[Max doesn't mind at all, she's not looking for somebody to comfort her. Despite everything, it feels nice talking about it with somebody.]

Yeah... In a way, it was like time had stopped for us. We hadn't seen each other in years, but somehow we just picked up things where we left off. She.... she changed my life.
sunnymerc: (041)

[personal profile] sunnymerc 2016-04-06 10:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[ She has been on the receiving end of time-related shenanigans, but nothing like traveling back in time or...what Max described. ]

Oh...Oh, no. That's amazing. Um, I mean. To have someone like that is amazing, even if you lost them. She must have been pretty great.
dramaquing: (smile serene)

[personal profile] dramaquing 2016-04-07 09:51 am (UTC)(link)
[She smiles, despite how tragically things ended, and even though it wasn't all sunshines and rainbows all the time, Max will cherish the memories she made forever.]

Yes, that's true. I'm grateful I had a second chance.

I just hope she remembers, somehow.

[personal profile] sunnymerc 2016-04-07 01:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[Soleil feels like she may explode from emotions. So, so many different emotions and not many words that don't sound tacky here.

So she just gives Max a bone-crushing hug.
dramaquing: (profile 2)

[personal profile] dramaquing 2016-04-11 04:01 pm (UTC)(link)
[As first, Max is surprised by the strength of the hug, but after a couple of seconds, she relaxes and returns it gladly (trusting that Soleil wouldn't crush her bones after all).]
sunnymerc: (054)

[personal profile] sunnymerc 2016-04-11 04:53 pm (UTC)(link)
[After a few moments, she lets go and takes step back, looking a little sheepish.]

Sorry. After hearing all that, I couldn't think of anything to say. Or...I think that hug said what words couldn't. That, and I think you might have needed one.

I know I did.

[Max's story is probably the saddest she has ever heard and bits were relatable. Then again, Soleil is a bit sheltered, so she doesn't have much to compare it to.]
dramaquing: (cute guitar)

[personal profile] dramaquing 2016-04-11 06:34 pm (UTC)(link)
A big hug... and even a bigger talk is exactly what I needed.[She smiles, sincere. She can't really talk about all of this back at home, as painful some of these memories are, it was nice sharing their weight with someone.]

Besides, if I learned anything from this, is that you can't fix everything... gods know I tried it with Chloe, even using my powers... But sometimes all your loved one needs, is your presence and support.

sunnymerc: (053)

[personal profile] sunnymerc 2016-04-12 01:25 am (UTC)(link)
...Heh! You're a pretty amazing girl. I mean, I knew that when I first saw you, but that clinches it.

I didn't know Chloe, so I can't speak for her, but...I don't doubt you made her super happy. So, never, ever forget that.

Thank you. For everything, really.

Yes, that's what she said. I just hope that she remembers it all... somehow.
