THE FAIL MEME
 



Because sometimes, characters are stupid, weird, embarrassing and clumsy. Just like us.
Post a blank comment with your characters name, canon and preferences. Responders roll 1-3 for general categories and 1-4 for more specific scenes. Play nice and have fun! A few things below the cut may be NSFW.


General Fail

1) Stuck. Why were you trying to get in through that window? Alternatively, how did you get your head stuck between those railings? Or perhaps more simply, your shoelaces have caught on something and now you’re trying to get away without alerting anyone to the fact that you quite literally can’t walk across a flat surface without doing something ridiculous and inelegant. Whatever you’ve done, you’re stuck in one place.
2) Clumsy. Oh no. What did you just break? A one-of-a-kind vase? Your friend’s favourite possession? Quick, just…put it back together and pray no one notices.
3) Saying What You Mean. This one can go two ways. For example, either you’ve tried to say something about your cat being out in the rain and instead blurted something about your wet pussy, or you’ve finally let it slip to the person that you secretly hate that you secretly hate them. Whether you’ve said something that sounds wrong or you’ve said something very true but very uncomfortable, it’s now exceedingly awkward.
4) Trip. Exactly what it says on the tin. Maybe you were trying to look cool, but you’re now flat on your face. Strangers are probably trying not to laugh. Anything you were carrying is all over the floor. Well done, genius.
 
Dating Fail

1) Late. Oh God. You spent so much time on your hair- or your pet/child/friend was making a fuss- you had to save the world- you were stuck in a different country- well, your excuses don’t matter. You are horribly, pathetically late. Better make this explanation good.
2) The Wrong Moment. Time to dive in for that kiss. Except you got their hair in your mouth, or they sneezed, or they just turned away. Maybe you bottled it and are pretending you were just leaning in to- to look at their eyes. Yeah. That’s not weird or anything, right?
3) Babbling. “Well, it’s so great to be out on a date since I’ve been so miserable since my fish died- not that I was too attached to my fish or anything, ahaha, yeah, no, but I did like her, I mean, you know, she was a pet, I think she was female, how do you tell if a fish is female or not I wonder, I never knew, I just trusted the guy in the pet shop…” You’re far too nervous to stop talking. Alternatively, if your character is more prone to silence, they’re too on edge to speak a word. Perhaps they’ve gotten a few monosyllabic things out- or perhaps they’re just smiling, nodding and dying inside.
4) The Bad Line. The bad: ‘Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?’ The weird: ‘You…are like a…gorgeous…orange.’ Alternatively, you’re staring into your date’s eyes and the mood is almost impossibly romantic, and all you can think to say is, ‘Nice weather, isn’t it?’

Sex Fail.

1) Can’t Do It. Either you can’t perform, or you just can’t reach orgasm, and it’s frustrating and embarrassing for both of you.
2) That’s Not Sexy. You’ve got ideas about tonight- a surprise for your lover. You’re going to wear this and do that and it’s going to be great. The trouble is, your partner isn’t into exactly the same things, and your attempts to be sexy are met with terror, blind incomprehension, or laughter.
3) Sex Injury. You’re trying out a new position, or maybe you’re well-practiced at this but very enthusiastic. However, this time, it is not to be. Maybe you’ve fallen off the bed, sprained something, your jaw, broken the desk you were bent over and gone down with it...
4) Vocalisations. Either you just failed badly at dirty talk, you yelled the wrong person’s name, or you’re being so loud that the neighbours decide to shout at you to shut up through the wall. Maybe your mother’s downstairs and you didn’t realise. Maybe you squeak embarrassingly when a certain place is touched. In some way, you’ve said something bizarre or made some kind of weird noise during sex, and everything is now very embarrassing.

River Song | Doctor Who


1 - 2

So this is where you've been staying?

[looks at the cage.]

How did you...never mind. You're you. Of course you found me. [More importantly, why is he here? At least he's here after the elder him left.]

Well, of course, I just--

[he puts a hand against the door to be all sexy, and it happens to be electrified. He goes shooting across the outside of the cage and lands in a heap outside her cell]

Doctor?!

Let me out! ...can't you see that he's hurt?

[She waits for a split-second later before pulling out her vortex manipulator, programming it for location and not time and appears a moment later outside of her cell where she kneels down and puts a hand his chest to make sure that he still has both heartbeats.]

[he lets out a cough]

That was---a bit embarrassing.

You make me break out of prison just so I can make sure you still have both heartbeats. You're impossible. [Except that her actions deny those words with the way she moves her fingers slowly over his body to make sure he's still whole.]

[an alarm goes off. The Doctor's head tilts awkwardly as he tries to work out where it's coming from]

We should get to the TARDIS.

Forcing me to break out of prison and now you're going to harbour a fugitive? Doctor, I knew I liked you. [She brushes his hair away from his eyes and then brushes her fingers along his cheek. She shouldn't go with him. It's a stupid move. But she's going to anyway.]

Well, I like to live life on the edge.

[he feels a little awkward with the intimate touch. He hardly knows her, he thinks, but---there's something about her. He doesn't know what it is, yet.]

I'm going to need your help. To...well, stand.

[She wraps an arm around his waist and helps him stand up slowly.] Do you really? Good to know. So, Sweetie. Where are you taking me?

To the TARDIS, right now. Then...somewhere that isn't here. Give me a minute, my brain's a bit scrambled.

Come on, Doctor. I think you need to lie down. I can take you to your room until your brain's back in working order. [Was she mocking him? Maybe a little.]

No, no, just to the TARDIS.

[he fishes for his keys, then slips them to the lock]

If you're entirely sure. [She helps him get in and looks around. It does look different than she remembered.]

Of course I'm sure. [he shuts the door behind her and pulls away, awkwardly walking towards the console and leaning a bit on the railing.]

Blimey, that was a harder shock than I was expecting. Were they planning on killing you?

I might have escaped their grasp one too many times. They wanted to make sure that I didn't do it again. Of course, it was pretty easy to get out when I really wanted to.

Pretty easy? I wasn't even trying to get shocked and it knocked me off of my feet!

What could you have possibly done to end up there?

Spoilers. [She knows exactly when and where he finds out and it's not too far away for him - or for her - but that time isn't yet for him.] Let's just say I am where I need to be.
