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.

[Good thing there's a nearby Sakura! Who will be concerned and helpful instead of laughing. Because. Hi :D]

Oh! Are you all right?

[... but wait. Was that seriously a feminine version of Naruto's dumb verbal tic? Whoa.]
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (angry→ SHUT UP SHUT UP)


[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-21 01:58 pm (UTC)(link)
[Yes. Yes, it was.

YIS HI :3. Heal her poor head, Sakura. Kushina is busy grumbling to herself at first, nursing her throbbing temples.]

Why is there still pain in the afterlife? And what's up with these trees? Where-

[Her sentence cuts off in surprise at the second voice. She's sure she's dead but she's not sure how she's able to breathe and smell and see and move. Sort of. Even if she's moving right into trees.

Kushina slowly stands from her spot and keeps her gaze in Sakura's direction. The new lump makes a painful twinge and Kushina winces before grabbing her head again.]

medicalpunch: (Chatting)

[personal profile] medicalpunch 2013-04-21 02:21 pm (UTC)(link)
You look like you need some help with that. [Because a lump like that can be bad news. And Sakura likes throwing healing around. It's nice to feel appreciated and useful.

So she moves over to Kushina's side.]

Here, sit down for a minute. It'll make it easier on you.


What's your name, anyway? You look like you're new... [Given the white dress and that bit about the afterlife, at least.]
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (calm→ huh?)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-21 02:27 pm (UTC)(link)
[Kushina doesn't particularly enjoy being told what to do by a stranger but sitting down sounds like a good idea. She keeps her eyes on Sakura, more curious and confused than angry, and sits down.]

Um, Kushina. Uzumaki Kushina.

[Her hand lowers from her head slowly.]

Who are you? Where are we? This just looks like a forest and you're ... you're too young to be dead. What happened?

[Her expression turns a bit somber, sad in a way.]
medicalpunch: (Happy Smile)


[personal profile] medicalpunch 2013-04-21 03:05 pm (UTC)(link)
[Well, plenty of people don't like being bossed around by a teenage girl. Sometimes Sakura forgets that, especially when she's in medic-mode.]

Ah, I should have said, I'm a medic, I can take care of that bump you've taken.
medicalpunch: (Oh?)

[personal profile] medicalpunch 2013-04-21 03:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Wait, Uzumaki?

... You must be related to Naruto, then. [But his family are...

Well, this woman is talking about being dead...]
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (shock→ 1)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-21 03:15 pm (UTC)(link)
[A medical ninja? Then...just where the heck was she? Was she alive in some village? Her mind spins at a hundred miles per hour. Did Minato perform the sealing jutsu wrong? How was it possible for her to be alive? Where was Minato then? Did they both turn out this way? Were they alive? Could she--

No, this...something's wrong. Something feels off. It's probably the extra weight on her back: the wings.

But then Sakura mentions Naruto and Kushina locks on that subject quickly, forgetting her wings again.]

Naruto? You know Naruto?
medicalpunch: (Happy Smile)

[personal profile] medicalpunch 2013-04-21 03:21 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oh boy, long explanation time is about to be a go. But that can wait a moment.]

I do! He's my teammate... and one of my best friends. [Not without a bit of rockiness, that, but they've settled pretty well.]

My name's Haruno Sakura. And... this is Luceti that you're in. There's a long story behind it.
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (shock→ substitute?)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-21 03:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[His friend. Naruto made friends. She never did get a chance to hear all about his life because her time was so short. All she knew was he was happy. So was she just imagining this? For how badly she wanted Naruto to have friends and bond with people, she conjured this medical ninja.

But Haruno? The name sounds familiar.]

Luceti? Is Naruto here...in Luceti? Is he okay? What happened to Konoha?
medicalpunch: (Intense)

[personal profile] medicalpunch 2013-04-22 12:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Um, well, I haven't seen him since I came here, but people have told me he was here before and left. But he was... [Erm. Well. The last time she saw him was in the middle of a massive battle, whoops. That's not really reassuring.] He was all right, the last time I saw him. Protected. [Wince. By someone who's also here.]

Konoha is all right. We're just not there. This place... pulls people from their own worlds, wherever they are, and brings them here.

[As she's talking, she raises a chakra-laden, green-glowing hand to that bump on Kushina's head. They're in for a long talk, she might as well take care of this.]
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (angry→ SHUT UP SHUT UP)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-23 04:48 am (UTC)(link)
[He was here. He was all right. Someone was protecting him. Who?]

Thank goodness...

[She grits her teeth but the soothing and healing chakra soon helps while she's busy soaking this in. It doesn't make sense.

Right, they're in Luceti. Was it a village they never heard of?]

Pulls people from their worlds? What are you talking about? There's only one world. That makes no sense, ya know!

[personal profile] medicalpunch 2013-04-24 11:46 am (UTC)(link)
That's what I would have said, but it doesn't appear to be true. This place isn't any part of the world we know, and there are plenty of people here from worlds very different than ours. You'll meet them soon enough.

[There. The bump is down to nothing, and Sakura can feel that the bruised tissue beneath is back to normal.]

How's that? Better?
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (happy→ second man to like my hair)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-24 03:58 pm (UTC)(link)
[It still makes next to zero sense, no matter how Sakura tries to explain it, and she's not sure how she's ended up here but the promise of seeing Naruto again...that stifles any reservations she might have had.

That chance isn't one she ever expecting to be able to have again. Nor the chance to meet his friend and teammate.

She rubs her head a bit and is relieved to feel nothing. No twinge of pain or lump. Sakura finally gets a small smile out of Kushina.]

Yes, thank you. Sakura...right? That'll be easy to remember because of your hair. It's the same color as cherry blossoms.
medicalpunch: (Chatting)

[personal profile] medicalpunch 2013-04-25 05:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I get that a lot. [She says it with a smile, though.] At least no one forgets who I am!

Just watch, though. One of these days I'll dye it blue or something.

[She sits back, regarding Kushina curiously.]

If you don't mind me asking... how are you and Naruto connected? [Since he has... no family at all that she knows of.]
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (blush→ that's right i'm your-)


[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-25 05:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[She can understand that mindset. While at first she hated being remembered for her red hair, now she loves it.

There's a bit of a laugh and a grin. Blue? Didn't she like her pink hair? Sounds familiar if that's the case.]

Then you won't match your name anymore! Besides, I like it like this.

[Kushina smiles a bit at the question, a blush on her cheeks.] I'm his--
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (shock→ but that!)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-25 05:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[Suddenly she stops and her eyes go wide, body doubling over while her hand reaches behind her for a wing, fingers clawing for it.]

Gh! What's...going on? My head doesn't hurt anymore but my body...!
medicalpunch: (Gasp!)

[personal profile] medicalpunch 2013-04-26 01:58 am (UTC)(link)
[There's not a lot of time to respond, with Kushina suddenly doubling over like that. Sakura gives a quiet cry of alarm and reaches out to her, hands flaring green again with a diagnostic jutsu.]

Tell me -- what hurts, where? What does it feel like?

[She's a medic, she can handle pain, but a sudden onset like that...]
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (anxious→ no luck)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-26 02:21 am (UTC)(link)
[There's a grimace but she fights through it with gritted teeth and guts alone. Her voice is a bit strained, evening out slowly as the sharpness of it fades and mellows into an uncomfortable ache all over.]

It just hurts everywhere, ya know...! [Kushina, that's not helping.]

It must be these wings, right? Ever since I got here, they've just been a pain. What are they for?
medicalpunch: (Serious Business)

[personal profile] medicalpunch 2013-04-26 11:27 pm (UTC)(link)
The wings might be sore, that seems normal with people coming, but they shouldn't be giving you this much pain...

[But she's already working on it, seeking out the screaming nerves and trying to follow them to the source of the pain.]

They're... it seems that we need them to survive here. They're tapped directly into our chakra circulation now, and they help us understand each other and interact with the world.
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (serious→ childbirth)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-27 05:30 am (UTC)(link)
[The workings of the body and chakra networks and nerve-endings and how they correlate with bodies (and now the wings) isn't something Kushina could really understand. But she does grasp that she needed these wings for some reason or other. So trying to rip them off would end very, very badly.

They still really hurt but it's nothing she can't take.

The spike of pain fades and Kushina relaxes again. Was this going to happen the whole time she was here? That just seems cruel!]

They? Who's they? Someone did this to us? [To Naruto, too? Unacceptable.]

Where are they?
medicalpunch: (Intense)

[personal profile] medicalpunch 2013-04-28 01:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[It will get better in time -- and until then, Sakura is a handy fix-it.]

Some of it happens to us when we're brought to this world -- as far as we know, the world itself does it, not any people.

But other things are done by an organization called the Malnosso -- they're also people who were brought here, and they're studying us. Because the world sends us home, but not them.
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (serious→ born to be a host)

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-28 04:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[Good thing she has her around for now! Could she follow her around when the pain strikes though? Sakura has her own life and Kushina is a proud woman.

What a strange world it is then, to give them wings and hurt them with it. To send them home when it pleases, like it's toying with them. It even has the power to bring people back to life? What kind of world does that? It's no genjutsu either, not that she was any good at it. But wouldn't she have to be alive to be caught in one? Kushina was very sure (after talking to her son) that she was dead.

How any of this was possible...doesn't make sense.

Kushina might have already lived her life, given it for the sake of her son, but Sakura was a young girl with experiences ahead of her.

But all Sakura is doing is raising more questions. Why hadn't she left? Were the wings keeping them here? What happened if the wings were taken off?

Kushina stands and ignores any pain that might have crippled a lesser woman.]

We should talk to the Malnosso directly then.
medicalpunch: (Determined uh oh)

[personal profile] medicalpunch 2013-04-30 02:38 am (UTC)(link)
We've done it; they contact us pretty regularly, actually. But it doesn't seem to do much good when anyone demands to be let out. This place has been here for years, from what I understand.

[And she's frowning over the abnormalities she noticed in Kushina's chakra.]

Kushina-san, please be careful with yourself. Your chakra circulation has been damaged... I'm not sure how badly.
fervidity: DO NOT TAKE ICON!!! (happy→ sorry you got my face)


[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-30 05:37 am (UTC)(link)
[It's enough to distract her, at any rate. The mention is simple enough to make sense to her too. It's not hard to figure out why either.


So Sakura gets a reassuring smile, very similar to a smile she knows when Sakura worries about him too. There's a bit of a laugh -- wistful.]

Geez, you sound just like Minato. [Sans the honorific.]

Don't worry! I'll be alright. [She'll even offer a hand to help Sakura to stand too.] I'm a lot tougher than I look. The wife of a Hokage has to be.

[personal profile] fervidity 2013-04-30 05:38 am (UTC)(link)
More importantly, we should be worried why this world decides to bring people at different times intervals. If it's been here for years, there should be some information we can gather that will give us more of a clue about this place if it hasn't already been found. Otherwise -- [She lifts a hand and tightens it into a fist.]

Maybe I should have a talk with these Malnosso.
