the luceti test drive meme

Reserves have just opened and apps are right around the corner. But are you still on the fence about any of your would-be characters? Well -- here is your chance to take them out for a spin!

TAG IN or reply to others with characters you would like to test drive for Luceti.
ONLY add top-level comments for characters who are not yet in the game. You're free to reply to others with Luceti characters (because that's half the fun) but remember that the whole point of this meme is for potential characters.
PLEASE do not post duplicates of characters already in Luceti.
GO AHEAD and give us a brief description of your character in the top-level comment, along with one or two possible ways to run into your test-driven character around town.
YOU MAY use these threads for your first person samples on your app -- just make sure that you link threads of a goodly length (i.e., threads with at least ten comments from your character).

Need a little help getting started? Remember, you needn't post here as though your character is still brand-spankin' new. It'll probably be more fun for all involved if this isn't a simple dress rehearsal for showing up. Here are a few scenario ideas:

o1. The grocery store is out of food. What do you do?
o2. Wing injury! Call for help or stagger your way to one of our fine clinics.
o3. It's a busy evening at Good Spirits, one of Luceti's local bars. Do you dare try the drink specials?
o4. Have a talent for playing music? Try Cloud Nine's open mic night!
o5. Beach party? Snow party? Leaf-raking party? Gardening party? YOU DECIDE.

Okay. So my examples are pretty non-exciting. But they're really just suggestions. I'm POSITIVE you kids can come up with more creative things.

Above all? HAVE FUN. Oh. And don't forget to RESERVE your characters.

[Chuckling nervously, he almost sighs in relief.]

Kushina, I could have broken the dishes.
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (smirk→ kukuku)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-19 03:14 pm (UTC)(link)
[She's busy laughing behind her mask, clutching her stomach, and because he didn't break it everything is completely fine. Finally she lifts it and shoots him a pleased grin, happy her prank was successful.]

Do you like my mask? I found it shopping today! It's been a while since I could pull a good prank and this was a perfect opportunity, ya know! Besides...

[She slides next to him and grins mishievously.]

Not many people can scare The Yellow Flash.
derpivity: (modesty)

[personal profile] derpivity 2013-04-19 03:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[Minato stares at the mask. Looks like something Kushina would like, that's for sure.]

Yeah, I think it's very well-made. [Perfect for pranks and all that. Upon finishing her sentence with a mischievous smile, though, he chuckles some more.]

I'm sure you're very proud of that, huh? [He doesn't even need to say it!] You being the only one to do that. I think that makes you the greatest prankster. [Yup, stroking her ego while washing dishes in a pink apron. Story of his life.]

fervidity: (smirk→ prank successful!)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-19 03:39 pm (UTC)(link)
[That's not what she meant but...well, it's good enough that he complimented it. Trust Minato to say something like that. It sits atop her head innocently now, non-scary. No matter how good she is as a prankster, scaring him twice probably wouldn't happen today. Maybe tomorrow...

She beams at him, straightening her shoulders and putting her hands on her hips while widening her posture.]
Yep! But I was already that before I could scare you.

I wonder who else I can use it on...

derpivity: (hi ladies)

[personal profile] derpivity 2013-04-19 03:47 pm (UTC)(link)
But it adds to your credit as a prankster if you actually managed to scare me.

[Beam beam! Innocent beaming! Finished with washing the plates, Minato begins to dry them with a towel. With how smooth he is as a shinobi, he's just as much when doing household chores as a good husband. He's still smiling at her when she wonders out loud.]

Naruto should be back later. You can hide somewhere and give him a scare. [And who said you're the only prankster?? Gosh, she's rubbing off on him.]
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (smirk→ no one messes with your mom)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-19 03:53 pm (UTC)(link)
[He's her enabler in every way.

Scaring Naruto is perfect since he's a prankster himself. And it would be funny to see his reaction since he's her son. Her grin turns positively devious.]

Kheheheh! Good idea!

[She turns and begins looking for a good place to hide. The living room? No. She needs a place where his defenses are completely down. That's either his room or the bathroom.

She begins laughing to herself at the image of what he's going to do when she jumps out at him.]
derpivity: (oh hey there)

[personal profile] derpivity 2013-04-19 03:59 pm (UTC)(link)
[Minato's just so amused by this display. Kushina, you're a grown woman, a mother, and you want to pull a prank on your own son. She's definitely one of a kind and he loves her for it.

Putting down the plates he had dried, he continues to watch her with a grin.]

Hide in his bathroom. I bet he'll least expect you're in there. I'll help you.
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (happy→ second man to like my hair)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-19 04:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[It's like he can read her mind. She turns to him and is still smiling but looks curious.]

Help me...? Do you have a mask too?
derpivity: (she's hot okok)

[personal profile] derpivity 2013-04-19 04:21 pm (UTC)(link)
[Smiling innocently this time. Lalala Naruto won't know what hit him.]

Well, you can always tell me where you got them and I'll be there in a flash.

[Mischievous wink is a-go?]
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (excited→ frans!)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-19 04:24 pm (UTC)(link)
[Naruto is going to be so mad. And it will be hilarious. She looks surprised at the offer and then grins.]


[Be there in a flash, huh? Minato is funny in his own ways. Maybe he doesn't pull pranks like Kushina does but he has his own sense of humor.

With the both of them hiding, Naruto is really going to be on edge when he got home. She tells him where she got the mask SOME SHOP AROUND TOWN.]

Kheheheh, this is the best prank! And I even get to do it with you!
derpivity: (understanding)

[personal profile] derpivity 2013-04-19 04:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[Yeah, Naruto will be furious but Minato thinks it's worth it. Poor Naruto, though. 8( AND OF COURSE HE HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR. His sense of humor is the best!]

We do need some family bonding from time to time.

[Still with his apron on, Minato closes in on Kushina and hugs her from behind.]

That, and some bonding between us too, right?
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (happy→ thank you for everything)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-19 04:40 pm (UTC)(link)
[IT'S WORTH IT. Besides, he'll forgive them quickly! They're his parents, after all.

She nods to herself. Yeah, this was good family bonding. Scare the stuffing out of Naruto and then laugh about it later when he was done being angry. Though it would be mostly Minato and Kushina having a laugh while Naruto most likely pouted about it all.

She gasps a bit at the hug, shocked. It's not the same sort of scare but he's surprised her.]

Mn, it's been a long time since I've talked you into pulling a prank with me...
derpivity: PLS DO NOT TAKE ANY (Default)

[personal profile] derpivity 2013-04-19 05:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[He takes pride that he briefly surprised her, feeling a little triumphant that he actually sort of got even. His smile from earlier turns slightly poignant, though, because she's right, it had been a long time since.

A very long time.

When he speaks, his voice is soft as he rests his chin on her shoulder.]

True... [He keeps the sadness in his voice at bay especially when he says his next words.] We have Naruto now with us, after all.

[Something they only dreamed of before, a life with the three of them together. And now, in this false world, they can have that second chance even for a short time. Minato is never a selfish man so he'll take whatever he can get.]

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-19 05:40 pm (UTC)(link)
[It was nice to sort of be normal, even with these funny wings. Kushina was sure this is just the afterlife and for some reason, it's the best place she could have imagined.

She was right like she knew she would be. They were nothing but happy, the three of them.]

Even if this isn't real, it's okay. I just wanted a chance to have this, the three of us together.

I'm happy!
derpivity: (understanding)

[personal profile] derpivity 2013-04-19 06:05 pm (UTC)(link)
[Her reply makes his lips curve up into a broader yet satisfied smile. His grip tightens around her because it's all he ever wanted too after fate dealt their family a heavy hand.

Minato offers a silent nod before he speaks once more.]

Me too. It's a chance I'm not going to pass up on. [Then, a soft chuckle.] I'll finally be a great Dad to Naruto.
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (happy→ bright and cheery)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-19 06:18 pm (UTC)(link)
You already are a great dad!

[She turns her head to face him but their foreheads merely end up pressing together affectionately.

Bad fathers didn't sacrifice themselves for their sons. While Kushina had at first abhorred the idea of leaving Naruto behind, he had turned out okay, didn't he? He knew he was loved and even though they couldn't be with him, they could now.

If she knew what she did now, maybe she would be a little more okay with it.]

derpivity: (oh hey there)

[personal profile] derpivity 2013-04-19 06:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Now you're just trying to flatter me.

[You're bias, Kushina, bias! Seriously, though, Kushina had always been his great support and he'd forever love and be grateful for how much she encourages him.

The sacrifice he had to make, however, was necessary at the cost of everything he could have lived for. There are some things far greater than his family and even if he wants to be selfish and think that his family would always be number one, he can't.

But Kushina's right. They can be with him now and that's all that currently matters. They might not be able to completely wipe away all the loneliness Naruto felt while growing up but they can try and they will try.]

fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (blush→ he had kushina)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-19 07:20 pm (UTC)(link)

[She laughs for a moment and then looks thoughtful.] Maybe it's to make up for all the times I teased you as kids.

[Because she did a lot of that. As soon as he had declared his dream was to become Hokage, she mocked that dream. How arrogant and naive she was. Minato had turned out to be the greatest Hokage of them all.

And Naruto was close behind, too.

But to Kushina, nothing will ever be more important than family. Minato could make all the speeches he liked about the pain of losing a country, losing a village, but they came first. They could always find a new home. They did, here in Luceti.]
derpivity: (hi ladies)

[personal profile] derpivity 2013-04-20 06:16 am (UTC)(link)

[Her response makes Minato laugh too.]
Yeah, you were pretty persistent then and would often call me a girly wimp.

[Or flaky or untrustworthy etc etc. She had always been a motormouth even when they were kids. Kushina had considerably mellowed now, though, and it was nice to prove to her the dream he had always held when he was still a little boy.

Sometimes, Minato thinks with Kushina's heart and abilities, she would make a good Hokage too and there are times where he'd picture the image in his head. But now, he can only picture his own son following his own footsteps and surpassing him. Just like how it's meant to be.

It was nice, though, to have this new home here in Luceti and Minato will always be thankful for it. A second chance is still a second chance.]
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (blush→ gonna be 4th's wife)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-20 05:53 pm (UTC)(link)

[She flushes, embarrassed at her younger self even if those days are in the past. There was no way she could make up for teasing him so much but at least things turned out okay, right? He only seemed to use her younger self as his own form of teasing like now to get her riled up.]

Ahahaha, I was pretty young, ya know!

[Leaning back into him, her smile softens. He did look pretty girly, even if she was wrong. But he was in no way a wimp.]

I bet my younger self would be pretty surprised to know that she married that person she thought was a girly wimp and he turned out to be the Fourth Hokage.
derpivity: (yes she's kindaaaa loud)

[personal profile] derpivity 2013-04-20 06:37 pm (UTC)(link)

[Everything did turn out fine in the end and Minato can never be more grateful for this. At the time, he didn't expect he'd fall for her either but he was easily attracted to her more than anything. His secret admiration of her bright, red hair helped a lot, he guessed.

As she leans back to him, Minato feels very comfortable with her in his arms like this. It's a sensation he doesn't want to break.]

Knowing you back then, I can also see her getting frustrated. [He sheepishly chuckles.] Since you were pretty steadfast on your dream, you'd probably be a little upset you married the Fourth Hokage instead.
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (happy→ even as a vessel)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-21 04:33 am (UTC)(link)
[H/C H/C]

[Of course she would have been, but if she told her younger self she got married to one of the weird boys in her class at all she would deny it vehemently. It wasn't until Minato that she saw him in a different light. He proved to her that not all the boys were weird and wimps. Or girly even if he still looked it a little.

She would probably demand how a girly and unreliable person got to be Hokage over her, yeah. The thought makes her smiles. Things had changed.]

But in the end, Konoha got a worthy and reliable Hokage. Even if it wasn't me.
derpivity: (she's hot okok)

[personal profile] derpivity 2013-04-21 09:20 am (UTC)(link)

[So many things did and they were for the better. It's always a nice thought, if not amusing. Love does change people, after all, and he's always going to be thankful that he is loved by Kushina. Gone are the days that she deems him unreliable and he's happy for that.

Leaning his face closer to her hair, he takes a whiff of it. It smells like the shampoo she used this morning (and he knows what it is because they do take some showers together) which smells simple and crisp.]

I don't know. I think you're pretty worthy and reliable yourself, Kushina. [Have a compliment, among many others that he won't hesitate giving you.]
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (excited→ now's your chance!)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-21 10:45 am (UTC)(link)
[She fidgets a bit from the sniff, squirming in his grip. He really does love her red hair and no matter how much he does, when he does things like this she flounders around.

It also tickles.

Not as worth as reliable as him, obviously, but--]

For every strong man there has to be a stronger woman. I have to be reliable too if I'm behind the Fourth Hokage, ya know!
