It's meme time!


Someone posited a while ago that one of the endings for Animus might involve reincarnating on a new world due to the current lack of bodies the PCs have. I figured "You know what? We've had the Bad (Ganon) End meme, the Good (Zo gets a cookie) End meme, why not a Reincarnation End Meme?

So congratulations! The Virus is destroyed and you are free from the Tower. The catch is that those dead worlds? Stay dead. There is no bringing them back and no returning you to them. So you were given another choice instead of staying in the Tower: the choice of your soul being reincarnated onto a new world and starting a new life. There's no guarantees what sort of life you'll lead or if you'll even wind up on the same world as your friends even if Zo will do his best.

But it sure does beat staying in the Tower for eternity, doesn't it?

Here's some prompts to use as a launching point. Keep in mind, there's are ideas. You can really play out whatever the hell you want in any sort of setting you want.

1). Meeting again
    Did you happen to run into one another on the street? Sit next to each other in class? Does the new coworker seem familiar?

2). Known each other your whole lives
    You know this person so well it's almost uncanny. It feels like there's a kinship (or animosity) between you that spans lifetimes!

3). Remembering
    Have you always been plagued by nightmares of a life you never lived? Does this person you have met trigger dark memories best left forgotten? Or does something as simple as a child's laugh, the Lord's prayer, or the number 37 feel forboding to you? Do you just wake up one day realizing the people around you were your comrades in arms once upon a time? Or do you remain ignorant of the fact?

4). Some things never change
    The sky is blue, the grass is green, Ganon will try to take over the world even in a new life, and the heroic ones will still go out to stop him and any other threat to the multiverse.

5). Moving on
    Except for those who choose to leave it all behind, to forget, and live their new life out to the fullest.

NOTE: This is opened to dropped characters as well, if anyone wants to screw around with those shenanigans.

[Well, at least she's probably in better health this time around?

...No, she almost certainly is, or at least significantly less scarred and with both eyes intact. More than likely, whatever kind of setting she has been reincarnated into, she's still involved in religion and devotes more energy to others than herself.]

[ Angra was rubbing his eyes with the back of one hand, not bothering to hide his yawns. Playing video games well into the night alone because your brother wasn't into them, and your older brother was off ogling one of the Tohsaka girls was all well and good, but he'd paid for it when it came to his lack of sleep the next morning.

It was a miracle he wasn't late to class again.

Except he's so zoomed out he doesn't respond when his name is called during the roll.

[ It takes a second for his eyes to focus on her face, and damn if the standard disapproving look of hers didn't irritate him. Honestly, the ugly feeling between them was mutual; her sort got on Angra's nerves. (It didn't help that dear Shirou had gone through an annoying phrase where he'd thought the sun shone out of her ass.) ]

Huh. . . ? Wha— [ He blearily blinked, belatedly remembered what was going on, and yelled: ] HERE!

[ The teacher glares. Their experiences with punks made them think poorly of Angra. More quietly, to Arturia; ] ... S'fine, really.

[ He responds very reasonably, and by reasonably, we mean he seriously attempts to skewer her hand with his chopsticks. like usual.

And does his routine response;

Go begging to the dumbass, not me. I'm not a charity case.

[She withdraws her hand swiftly, immediately sassing him back in spite of the welt that is almost certainly swelling up on the back of her hand now.]

Hoh, who said I was begging? "Charity case" implies I care whether or not you want to give me any.

[So... reincarnation is a lot easier than being sewn back together on an operating table. Who knew.

Not like becoming a new person would change who Veronica was on the inside though. She still followed the path of protector, learning all over again what it means to be a bodyguard and protect others from threats. In fact, probably the only difference in the shy teen was the absence of the scars and stitches she always had.

[If you think Shinji isn't still a brat, I don't know what to tell you.

--But, in fairness, he's probably less of a brat than he was originally. You just can't take the obnoxious of of Shinji Matou entirely.

BONUS: Could also be an Actual Teenager for age mismatch-related hilarity.]

[Unfortunately for Naoya, 'reincarnation' does not mean 'peace'. Stuck on a world far away from his world's God, he doesn't really have much chance to fight his curse.]

[But that doesn't mean that he won't live his life. More historical options involve him being a doctor, or a builder of some sort. Modern options could involve teaching or general technology work. Of course, I'm open to whatever. /o/]

Regardless, he'd have a fondness for music and have an appetite for food. He always seems to be open for spending time with people, no matter who they are.

[personal profile] neverbeamemory 2014-01-26 11:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[New life or not, some part of Sephiroth's soul will never forget. What he is, what he did, what he went through in his past life. He just doesn't know, the path of this life is different to what it had been on Gaia.

He's the model of a perfect SOLDIER, or the equivalent in this new World at least. Some might even go so far as to call him a Hero, but some part of him can never accept that. He can always do better.

Vivid dreams and terrifyingly realistic nightmares have always been a constant. Sometimes the medication helps him to sleep but he can't afford to dull his senses every night.]
seekinganswers: (this is vaguely uncomfortable)

[personal profile] seekinganswers 2014-01-26 11:45 pm (UTC)(link)
[The thing about being a hero is that there comes a time when you're expected to become a mentor.

Sheba has heard lots of things about Sephiroth's exploits in this new world. Who hasn't? People her age were practically raised on the stuff - it just so happened that some of them actually had the chance to meet the people from the stories. As the heroes grew older new heroes had to rise up to take their place, after all; that was the way of the world.

She is one of those "new heroes," or at least the powers that be would like her to be. That's why this meeting has been arranged - for him to check out what she can do and to recommend how she might best put her skills to use. As for her, she looks a little uncomfortable as she approaches, but that's not from intimidation.

It's mostly because she's trying very hard not to make some snarky comment that will piss him off.]
neverbeamemory: ((General) Considering)

[personal profile] neverbeamemory 2014-01-27 10:41 pm (UTC)(link)
[He'd put this off for a long time. A combination of the level of respect he has obtained within the infrastructure of this life, and the simple fact that few would question him if he refused to do something.

Though, for all of his legendary stories, despite how Sephiroth fought to keep himself in prime condition - he wasn't getting younger, even if he wasn't aging that obviously either. Wouldn't allow himself to accept that he might be slipping past his prime, ignoring the darker shadows starting to form under his eyes from a lifetime of hardness, the light furrow staring to form between his brows. A new generation was springing up around him and so he had finally conceded; recently the nightmares were blurring the edge of reality for him, now might be the only chance he got to pass on his skills.

As the girl approaches, Sephiroth turns from admiring the scenery outside of the window to thoroughly evaluate the next hopeful by sight alone. For just a fleeting moment he catches deja vu but then banishes it within himself. Though, she still seems familiar, somehow.]
