"Harry, the Sun is crashing," said Vankous, sounding far more serious than he had in their ten thousand years working together.

"Come again?" said Harry, testing the waters to make sure this wasn't another elaborate prank.

"The Sun, in dimension 36 is about to hit Earth...and well, I mean I don't have to explain to you what happens in that case do I?" asked Vankous, "I'd go deal with it myself, but obviously this one needs to be handled a bit more discreetly."

Harry lets out a sigh. "Of course. The one universe where nothing happens, the actual sun has to make things hard. Get the team together."

Harry turns towards the console of their timeship. "Tachy, set course for the Solar System, Dimension 36, we have a wayward sun to catch. Timestamp, T- 4hrs before event."

"Yes, Captain."

"Icecream? Please?" Corys gestures at the sign, but receives only a blank stare in return. "Uhm. Helado? Glace? Eis?"

"I.. Sorry," he whispers. Mortified, he tries to slink out of the shop, but Nora grabs his collar and drags him back. She snatches a napkin from the counter and sketches a lopsided icecream cone, then holds up two fingers. The vendor nods.

Her grin is smug. "Easy peasy."

Crenshaw(after being spontaneously hugged by a werewolf enthusiast) leaps backward, fluffy ears pinned back, a disgusted grimace on his face. "Get back, you animal." He takes on a fighting stance, his cloak falling open to reveal it is literally lined with throwing axes.

. . .

Your character realizes that they have a unique talent for whistling, which they can use both on the vaudeville stage or in their fight against the villain. Do they choose fame and riches, or do they take the high road to defeat the villain once and for all?
(assuming that whistling is like the villain's kryptonite)


Alright alright I realize that was a bit cruel and unusual, even for me...

Your character finds a buried chest that reads: A Curse Upon Those Whomst Seeketh The Many Riches Inside.

Beyren reaches for the lid, but Kassia slaps his hand away. He offers a sheepish grin as apology, then flinches away at her expression.

"What are you doing?" Her voice is dangerously calm. "I thought you could read. It says 'CURSE'."

"..It also says 'riches inside'."

"Curse!"

"Riches."

"NO!"

Your character receives a letter from a secret admirer.

Ren would put it into his pocket, pretending it was just the electric bill. Then he would go somewhere private, take it out and read it over and over again, thinking to himself it's not real, it can't be real, why would they? After that, he'd assume it was a prank, but he wouldn't find it in himself to throw it away, so he'd probably stuff it into a shoebox under his bed and leave it there. Occasionally he would think about it, and repeat the whole thought process all over again.

Golzar stared for a moment at Bryn, almost uncomprehendingly, and then she put her hand on her hip and laughed. "I didn't think you had it in you, but well played."

Golzar would try to play it cool and brush off her feelings. She doesn't think someone with her occupation should pursue romance (and she would know, because she's tried it before and it didn't end well), so she would do her best to either avoid this person or convince herself they're just a friend or acquaintance.

Your character receives a gift from someone important to them.

Sara would be taken aback with this unexpected gesture. She cares for people but she clamps us when people care for her in return. She would blush and fumble and mutter thanks and say that there was no need to waste money on her. But in the back of her mind, she would start counting the money she had saved up and wonder if it would be enough to get them something as well.

Your character gets into an argument with a loved one.

Golzar would probably leave the situation and take out her frustration with sword practice. She wouldn't come back unless she knew what to say to smoothen it out.

Kay gasps in delight and whispers, "A unicorn!" She quickly glances around to make sure her mother and her family's servants aren't watching, then climbs out the window and mounts the mythical creature. "Onward, to adventure!" she whoops, then mutters, "...and here's to hoping Mother won't scold me afterwards."

-

Raina eyes the unicorn. It eyes her back. "Hmph. Well, go on now, shoo. I'm not about to go prancing through the streets on a strange glittery horse anytime soon."
The unicorn snorts in annoyance, appears to roll its eyes, and finally trots off to who-knows-where. With a satisfied sniff, Raina turns back to the book she was speed-reading.

Your character wakes up to it raining food-- more specifically, cheeseburgers of all sizes.

Golzar would round up whoever is outside and get them to hide in the inn. Then she'd pick up one of the strange falling objects and examine it.

"Is this . . . food?"

Your character is in school and has an assignment due in a week.
