The Period Costume Meme

Picture your muse in petticoats. Or gauzy Grecian draperies. Or really tight pants and a frock coat. Maybe Japanese court dress? Whatever, you have a costume kink, that's literally all this is about. Maybe you want them playacting, maybe you like the idea of some other character taking it all off them one layer at a time... maybe you just think it'd look good on them.

There are many reasons for a character to don period costume - a partial list is provided - and many, many eras to draw from.


  1. Post your character in the historical garb of your choice. Go ahead and get self-indulgent with the detailed description. Or just find an icon, I guess.
  2. Indicate what scenario(s) you have in mind, whether you're open to wacky period mismatches, and any other prefs you may have.
  3. Tag some folks and get your costume kink on.

Marriage for love is a such a modern concept. In the past, marriage was
recognised as a social contract. Unions were entered into for many
reasons: to obtain property, to unite families, to carry on a bloodline,
et cetera. Whatever the reason, congratulations, you're getting married!

โง Post a comment with your character's name, canon, and any preferences.
โง If there's a specific set of circumstances you like best, set the scene.

a sci-fi au shipping meme

The Setting )

The Premise )

The Problem )

tl;dr sparknotes this because we want to get to the meme: Sentinels and guides had a baby with YA dystopian lit. After a near extinction level cataclysm, people began to develop abilities that fall into two categories: Powered (sentinel/warrior) and Source (guide/healer). Their true powers are only revealed when they find their one genetically compatible match. A shadow government kidnaps these individuals, puts them into lifebonds, trains them for combat, then sends them out in teams to do all the dirty work. Codependency, mind-bonding, unhealthy love, and bloody murder probably ensue.

  • In the subject line, place your character name, canon, preferences, and whether your character will be a Powered, Source, or either.
  • Reply to others!
  • What will your character be doing? Being a late bloomer and only now meeting their partner? Training? On a mission? Enjoying some rare down time? Comforting their partner? Aftercare after the battle? Getting blackmailed? Climbing to the top of the ladder and infiltrating the government? Realizing their partner's getting a little too bloodthirsty? Falling in love with someone else's Powered or Source - absolute anathema. Facing certain death? It's up to you.

Most societies have certain mores that are unspoken rules; humanity itself even has such conventions, grilled subconsciously into our minds for our own safety. Don't go out alone at night. Avoid getting wet when it's cold. Don't pick fights with those stronger than you...okay, some of us missed the boat on the last one, but the point still stands. Society's rules tend to be more variable, though they apply to most aspects of life - including sex. In fact, bending the rules on what's considered acceptable in romance and sexual encounters can lead to anything from ostracization to death, depending on the time and culture.

So, play it close to the chest if you're going to do a big, big, big t a b o o. Is it worth the risk?

- Comment with your character and preferences. Be sure to include what you want and what you DON'T WANT. Blank comments are fine; info is even better!
- Reply to others.
- Be fun and respect others, as this will deal with some heavy topics and potentially triggering material s.

A Meme of FIRSTS!

You're in right smack in the middle of exciting times, perhaps even the peak of your life so far, and you're not alone. For you and your companion, it's all about firsts: first crush, first love, first fight, first confession, first kiss, first time, first adventure to certain death together - you know, as you do. There is a first time for everything, after all, and they say you never forget your first.


  • It's what it says on the tin.
  • Your character can be at the right place and time for all these firsts, you can age them down, they're starting late, they never had the chance, it's an AU I DON'T EVEN CARE just play.
  • Set up your top comment with your preferences, limits, info, and all that.
  • Reply to other people.
  • Prompts are amalgamations of many, many different memes.

Hankering to play out your OTP? Having trouble finding meme partners and PSL buddies? This meme is for you.

It can be really hard to find your perfect match as far as roleplay goes. Sometimes, it's hard to find a match at all. You might find someone to play with you for a little while but maybe they flaked out, or something just wasn't quite right. You'd like to try again with someone else, but where do you find that someone else?

The object of this meme is to connect you with other PSL and Meme players out there who are looking for roughly the same thing.


โž€ post with your character
โž specify which pairings you are looking for, if any. you might even want to put this in the subject of your comment,
ie "ISO Dean Winchester from Supernatural"
โž‚ be sure to state any situations you're particularly interested in
โžƒ be clear with your limits and preferences
โž„ search other posts for your other half
โž… wait for people to reply to you
โž† when you've found that person, roleplay!

an amnesiac shipping meme

You have no idea who you are.

One day, you just woke up from the darkness, confused and alone. You barely remember your own name, much less why you're here...or where here is, even. Your own body is strange to you, and if you have some kind of power or ability, that must be frightening. Perhaps you're angry at everything so new and different, lost in this strange world you don't understand or know your own place in. Maybe you feel the need to hide away, lest you be crushed by everyone out there who is sure to hurt you.

You are so, so alone.

Only you're not. There is one person, one person who's found you and taken you in. They've shown you kindness, looking after you while you can barely look out for yourself. Out of the goodness of their heart, they've shown you things, taught you things. Most importantly, they're giving you a new sense of identity. And for that, you've begun to appreciate them. More than words can say, actually. You care for them so deeply that your heart hurts around them. Is that normal? What is this feeling? You can't imagine life without them, and leaving them- That's something you could never consider. Is this lov...

The word's on the tip of your tongue, but you can't figure it out, exactly. What you can figure out is that you want to give everything you can to the person who's done so much for them. You want to stay by their side and make them happy. You want to protect them at all costs.

So no one would blame you for getting confused when you see them with someone else or getting angry when you believe they're in danger. And certainly it's only natural for you to get frustrated when you want to tell them what you think of them, what they mean to you, and you can't figure out what to do. Perhaps following instincts will do?

One thing you know is that this bond and these emotions will never go away, not even when you learn who you are.

- This meme is for examining what happens when someone with no memories, potentially someone with powers or skills that could be dangerous at the very least, develops deep feelings for the person who's taken them in or is helping them realize their past. It can be played as awkward, adventurous, tragic, cracky, fluffy, truly romantic, or anything in between. You can play at the beginning, the part where emotions have strongly developed, or even when the amnesiac has regained their memories and must now deal with new feelings.
- Reply with your character and preferences. Mention if you'd like to play the amnesiac, the caretaker/help, or both.
- The role of caretaker does not have to always be beneficial. Maybe they caused this condition in the first place so the other character would be dependent, loving, and loyal towards them.
- Reply to others and play.

In Someone Else's Shoes

You've landed in someone else's body and now must live their life without being found out or there will be dire consequences.

Time period:
1. The Past
2. The Present
3. The Future

1. How to escape from this? Would you even want to, now that you are living a fanboy/fangirl's deam of walking in your favourite character's shoes or maybe in their possible love-interest's?
2. Oh hell... - Someone must be really having it against you. You've had landed in someone whose life is opposite yours and you don't even know how to act like them. Alright, it is an adventure and now it is time to improvise (Fun ^0^). Or there must be someone out there who might believe you and willing to help you to find your way home (tread carefully, you don't know this 'world').
3. Fix it AU - This universe/world exist in your own as a fictional work . This is a chance for you to fix something that you don't like on the original scenario/history (possible hidden crossover if you are playing as other fandom's character)
4. Other.

1. The traveller
2. The native dweller of the world.

Strangers like me

strangers like ๏ฝ๏ฝ…
( a shipping meme )

You've always known you've been different, even if you didn't fully understand how. And it's more than a normal, healthy feeling of youthful isolation, because somehow, someway, you were cut off from any connection. It's possible that you were raised in conditions most would consider "wild," even barbarous or animalistic. Of course, you don't know that. You don't even think there are others similar to you.

Until someone like you falls into your life, by chance, by accident, or by design.

At first, you go full-tilt into learning everything about this mysterious stranger and all they know about your mutual people. All these wonderful concepts, these worlds you've never dreamed of! Most importantly, now you know you're not alone.

Then, things change. Your focus begins to shift to this person, more than just the information they can provide. You can't help but notice their features, so much like yours. Whenever they're around, you feel so much lighter and happier. Your heartbeat quickens. You want to see them smile. Why do you have this growing need to be beside them?

You don't understand any of this and, hopefully, you're fine with that as long as you get to learn more and stay with this person, this link to your past...and your future.

  • This was originally conceived as a shipping meme, but if you want to play gen, that's fine. Just clarify! Smut is fine, too. Again, just specify it.
  • Feel free to AU your character as desired.
  • You can do a feral AU or just focus on the "lonliness until they discovered ~love~" aspect.
  • ANYWAY, comment with your character, preferences, and, if you'd like, which part you'd like to play (the "only" one/wild one or the "stranger").
  • Reply to others and thread.
