Makeshift, Random RP Prompts

Prompt #1 - "Switched Places"

It had been a wonderful day, in all honesty. You had a decent day at work, no real trouble throughout the day, and it had been quite easygoing. Here you are, home at 5:00 PM and free to relax for the rest of the evening. You had been looking at the movies available for rent - a few were laughable, a few seemed interesting - but you never got the chance to rent any of them or even watch the trailers. Seeing as the minute you sat down on your couch, the world swayed and swirled together for a moment...

And then you find yourself in a well-decorated living room surrounded by three young adults with horns, snake-like eyes, and pointed tails swishing behind them. They're clutching a Ouija board and are now staring at you horrified. While one of them throws the board at you, the others take off down the hall and into a bathroom - screaming. They almost lock their friend out, who once inside yells "I told you we shouldn't have touched it!"


Description of prompt: A world where humans are in the place of demons and demons in the place of humans, even the powers are swapped. Your character has been "summoned" by three demons as a joke, and now you need to find a way home...if that's even possible. You/Your character still looks completely human, they just now suddenly have demonic powers.


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Prompt #2 - "Killer Innocence"

If there was one thing you truly loved about living in your home town, it was your best friend. She was a literal human cinnamon roll, way too pure and innocent for this world. You two had met in high school, and even then it seemed she would be this little dollop of sunshine on a rainy day for the rest of her life. Always wearing fuzzy pastel sweaters and a panda eared hat on chilly days. She seemed to have a positive comment for everything, and a joyful grin to match a upset frown.

This persists even out of high school and into college, never growing out of that pastel faze but instead adapting it to work as a fashion statement. Her attitude never changes either, if anything she becomes even sweeter - always inviting you over with the promise of warm cookies and other such things. Truth be told, it was very nice to be around her - such as now when you two were on the way towards a new café, her decked out in what could be only referred to as her typical outing outfit of a panda hoodie - complete with ears stitched into the hood - yellow shorts, and rainbow sneakers. Of course that's ruined when you both are essentially cornered, and about to be mugged.

Description of prompt: "For some reason, every local criminal gang is scared of your best friend." For ironic reasons, I have made said best friend as seemingly innocent as possible. Obviously everyone here is human. No real magic or anything, just modern madness.

Prompt #3 - "Not What It Looks Like"

Ever since you turned 16, you have been able to see how dangerous people can be using a system of numbers floating over their heads. You decided not to mention it to anyone - after all, you've seen movies you know what happens when this sort of stuff gets out. It's not like you've ever met up with anybody who's dangerous - seeing as most people you've met at your college are at 2 or a rare 3. Highest you've seen so far is a 7, and that was watching a news broadcast about a murderer on the loose who was later caught. Most people are around 2, although kids are at 1 for obvious reasons.

Now, coming back from a trip, you find out your former roommate has moved out and now a new one is moving in. No big deal, you think, seeing as your former roomie gave you a heads up a few weeks ago. They had told you about the new lady moving in, and you had agreed seeing as said lady had offered to pay the rent for six months - so why would you say no?
It's only when you officially meet them, seeing their easygoing smile and kind eyes, relaxed posture and nonthreatening attitude you regret ever saying yes without seeing a picture to use your powers on. You would have never said yes to letting this short standing, decent looking, lady be your roommate. Not with that number 10 - the highest on the "danger scale" - floating above her head.

Description of prompt: You have the ability to tell how dangerous someone is just by looking at them, from a scale of 1 to 10. A child would register as a 1, a trained man with an assault rifle would be a 7. Now, your new roommate is a 10. Again, this takes place in a modern setting, everybody is human. No magic.

(Sure.)

David felt his heart froze as he saw the ten over the lady's head. He swore that time froze as he gazed at the woman, fear entering his mind. As quickly as time stopped, it resumed with David nodding his head at her. "You're my new roommate, right?" David asks with his hand out to give a handshake to. David masked any sense of fear in his body or voice, becoming a monotone voice. If she asked why he was so pale, he would say that he forgot he had to write a ten page paper that was due tomorrow. And he was only half done.

(Perfect!)

"The name is Cassandra, but please - call me Cassie." The young woman says with a grin, her shoulders relaxed and brown eyes dancing. She had a small frame, lithe but seemed strong in her own sense - that, along with the pixie cut her black hair was in gave her a punkish look.
"Seriously though; wicked apartment. I promise not to be a noisy roomate though." She mentions playfully, winking. "I'm honestly sure we will get along just fine."

David took his hand back, making sure to take note of Cassandra. "Don't worry about making too much noise. I'm fine with it, but Ann isn't." David tells Cassandra, shrugging his shoulders. David looks over his apartment, wondering where Ann could have went. "Wait... If my other roommate wasn't here, where's Ann?" David asks mostly to himself, walking past Cassandra and making his way to the small, but durable living room to search for the ball python.

"I'm sorry, who is Ann? A friend of yours?" Cassie asks, following him just a few steps behind.
"I'll be sure to be quiet anyways. Only time I might be too loud is putting up my collection - the display cases like to hit me in the head when they fall."

Height: 5'8"

Occupation: Studying to be a detective, using his 'Danger-Sense' to his advantage.

Looks like: Short black hair, lean build. Wears a dark green shirt, grey jacket, blue pants, and grey shoes.

How's that?

((I'll do it. Here we go!))

It was around 1PM in Jack's apartment, and the door was still open as he stared at his new roommate....

Ordinarily, he was a friendly individual, always willing to meet new people as needed. Even after his 'Danger-Sense' (as he so described it) had manifested itself, he never let it get him down. In fact, he desired to put this new power to use, and so he dedicated himself to learning how to be a worthy detective on the force, something he had always dreamed of doing since he was a kid....

Right now, however, his Danger-Sense was now telling Jack that this lady (who he had to admit, looked fairly attractive) was MASSIVE trouble. The large red 10 floating above her head told him all he needed to know... but it was too late to turn her away....

Swallowing his fear, Jack forced a small smile to come to his face and said, "Oh, hello there.... you must be my new roommate. So... what is your name?"

"Heh, you're right.... it beats being alone," Jack answered back, a little flustered by Cassie's playful nature, then said, "Name's John Harding... but just call me Jack. Everyone else does..."

Keeping his guard up and remembering where he hid objects to defend himself with, Jack showed Cassie around his apartment, finishing with where her room would be.

"And here is your room..." Jack motioned to the empty space (save for the bed, TV, and dresser), "Feel free to decorate it how you like. If we're going to share this apartment, I at least want to make you feel at home here..."

"Dang, nice set up." She nods, listening carefully before smiling. "I got some boxes in my car, so yeah - I'll probably wind up bringing those in." She chuckles, shrugging.
"Thanks for letting me move in with barely a warning - I hadn't realized I'd need to move until I got the news, a big surprise and all that jazz y'know?"

The three muggers seem to chuckle, and from beside you Cassie...simply lowers her hood and smiles. "Excuse me, gentlemen? My friend and I were on our way to a nice café...so would you please leave us alone?" She's speaking kindly, with that soft signature smile on her pink lips.

They don't even say anything. One look at Cassie and the three muggers just drop their weapons and book it out of the alleyway. "Well, glad we got that all figured out~!"

Cassie looks confused for a moment, before shrugging. "I'm not sure...maybe they forgot about something and had to go deal with it?" She suggests, but soon she's smiling again. "Come on! I heard the café has really good hot cocoa!" Her eyes are lit up like stars, and it's hard to believe anyone would be scared of this four foot nine inch pastel being.

NebulousSupposition Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2017
Great!  Well, I hope it's not getting too repetitive for you but #1 would be the most fun  ^^
Here's what I had in mind for a character-
Name:  Josh Damon (Yeah, I always like trying to throw little puns into character names here and there...)
Age:  19
Appearance:  Shorter than average with some muscle on him but more so looking a bit chubby.  Black hair that's quite straight and hangs down almost to his brown eyes.
Personality:  A bit of a rebel, who keeps to himself but isn't afraid to confront anyone wanting to mess with him and can get rather vocal and fired up.  He's been stuck in some pretty lame jobs since highschool, but still gets by and doesn't really worry about advancing.  At least around friends he's a bit more laid back, but to others that would certainly seem out of the ordinary.

And then for powers, I can try to come up with a few, or if you want the powers just gradually come to him, even by accident or when he doesn't mean to, the longer he's stuck there.

Hey, #1 is fun. ^.^ Puns are amazing.

The powers are pretty much the stereotypical ones: Pyrokinesis, telekinesis, and phasing through solid walls. The longer he's stuck in the parallel world the more powers he gains(walking on walls, electronic manipulation, mind control) again, powers you could see a demon from your everyday horror movie having. ^w^ Is this alright with you?
