673. The return of the return of the captivity meme - now with more scenarios!
[Also on DreamWidth]

You've been captured - or maybe you've been held captive for a while now. Whatever the case, you've lost your freedom, and there's a specific person responsible for that. You might be a prisoner, a mental patient, a kidnap victim, or someone's pet. Maybe you're there willingly, or maybe the choice has been taken away from you completely.

Both smut and non-smut scenarios are possible. If you don't want to play smut, please indicate so in the title line of your tag.

1. Leave a tag with your character. Be sure to include any limits on what you are willing to play, as this meme has the potential to be triggering.

2. Someone else tags in and uses RNG to generate a number between 1 and 12. The second character is holding the first character captive now.

3. ??

4. Profit!


1. For their own good.
Does this person really think they could make it on their own? It's a big, scary world out there, and you need to protect them from it, whether they like it or not.

2. For the good of society.
Forget protecting this person - it's your duty to protect the world from them! Maybe they committed a terrible crime, or maybe they were falsely condemned, but it's your job to keep them locked up where they can't do any more harm.

3. Because they're not well.
How's your bedside manner? Whether you're Florence Nightingale or Mildred Ratched, you're in the position of ministering to the mentally ill. Maybe this person genuinely needs your help, or maybe you're just turning a blind eye to their true sanity.

4. For the money.
Higher aims? What higher aims? This person is your meal ticket, and they're staying put until their loved ones pay up.

5. For their love.
It might be a case of yandere, or it might be a consenting BDSM relationship. Whether it's by mutual agreement or by force, you're keeping them simply because you love them.

6. Because they're cute and fluffy.
Who's a cutesy wutesy? They are! Yes, they are!
This person is your pet now. Maybe they're a different species from you, or maybe you just don't care that you're both people. Maybe you're even an alien zookeeper looking after a new acquisition.

7. Because they're your property.
Slave? Livestock? Who cares what they think - they're your property, and you decide their fate.

8. For the lulz.
Hey, what's a little bondage between friends? You'll let them go, once you're done laughing and snapping photos...maybe.

9. By accident.
...Wait, what? You didn't intend this! You must have seriously bungled something, because now you've got a captive you didn't intend to take...but you can't just let them go, can you?

10. Because they know too much.
This person knows something you can't afford to have floating around. Maybe they know too much about you or someone you work for - or maybe you think it would be better if the potential inventor of the next super weapon was kept safely under lock and key.

11. Because you want something from them.
It's not ransom - ransom would involve someone else paying to have this person back. No, your captive has some ability or possession that you want - no, that you need - and you're not letting them go until they cough up the goods.

12. Choose a scenario, combine several, or make up your own.

idek, star trek crossover?

Pike strode into the room, giving the lieutenant a nod to lower the force field. He wanted to talk to the prisoner he had in the brig. He steps in and the force field goes up again. "Who are you and how did you get on board this vessel?" No beating around the bush for the Captain, he wants answers.


David's sitting on the bunk, head bowed, mind inwardly racing through escape scenarios, one after another. What good is it to turn into a bug when the exit is an impregnable force field? Then movement outside the field catches his attention and he lifts his head. Someone's coming in, someone in a different uniform from the others. What does that mean? He's not sure. He's here for his own reasons, but he didn't really go in with a lot of intel.

"Who, me?" he asks with a faint smirk. "I'm no one. I'm just a guy from the last planet who got lost."

It's not a terribly convincing lie, but then, David's not trying to be convincing.

"Uh huh," Pike wasn't buying it. "So you're telling me you either grabbed onto one of my crew that was dematerializing and got up to this ship without anyone noticing...which is near impossible considering the filters would have discovered you before you rematerialized....or you stowed away in a shuttlecraft and happened to be "lost" in there till it docked and you found yourself on board."

"Maybe that's not too far from the truth." David's still not being anything close to forthright, because if they don't know about his secret weapon, he's certainly not going to tell them. It's not like they caught him morphing or anything - they'd just caught him as himself, in a room he definitely had no access too, looking for something. "Or maybe I just got in a way you don't know about. Maybe this ship's not as hard to get into as you think it is."

Edited at 2012-01-15 12:22 pm (UTC)

Pike leans over, glaring in David's personal space. "Maybe you'd like to spend the rest of the trip in the brig? Because I am this close to deciding on leaving you here and not turning around to put your sorry backside back on the planet you came from." They had scanned him of course, but he had come back as humanoid. Not that they were looking for anything else. "Why are you here?"

David's smirk twists into a scowl and he glares up at the guy, some kind of officer he's guessing. The threat gets his attention but not in the way it was meant to - he's very much not interested in getting stranded back on that miserable alien world he was on before he snuck on board. "I'm just here sightseeing," he deadpans. "Figured I'd get back into space and meet new and interesting people."

"Sneaking onto a Federation Starship is not the way to do it. As Captain, I should have you arrested and held for questioning concerning sabotage." Pike lets out a frustrated breath through his nose. What was he going to do with this kid? "I could dump you on the first transport ship going by, no questions asked." That would sure accomplish his goal of meeting interesting people. Might also get him into more trouble, depending on who he met up with.

"You're the Captain?" Well, so much for bullshitting his way through this. The threat David's got hanging over him suddenly got a lot more real.

Edited at 2012-01-15 12:40 pm (UTC)

He's a little surprised that the kid didn't know from his uniform. "Yes, I am. Captain Christopher Pike. You're on the USS Enterprise." He gives David a scrutinizing look. "You really didn't know that, did you?"

"No," David admits, and it's probably the first straight answer he's given him so far. "I didn't really get a lot of time to read the brochure. You docked your ship, and I got on board before you left."

going with they docked at a space station above a planet

"You even know what the Federation is?" How about an easier question. "What planet did we just leave?" Pike crosses his arms with a look that says, you're faking your way through this, aren't you?

sounds good to me

Well. That wasn't a question he wanted to hear. Better for the Captain to think he was from the planet, going back to the last one they were on would be more trouble than it's worth. Going back to the station? Cake. And the piercing look the Captain's giving him, like he knows exactly what's going through his head, really isn't helping either. "Ah... Slegabb Five?"

and since I know very little about your canon, feel free to add anything in you want :)

It's a gift really. Pike is always asking questions that people don't want asked. "That's the name of the station. I was asking about the planet."

setting this post-canon for him, figure he's here trying to get 'his' blue box back.

Damn it. He had to give the Captain the station name, now he's sure to know. So to buy himself some time, he decides to give him the truth - or at least a piece of it. "I wouldn't know, I wasn't there very long."

[OOC: Pike's in charge, so I leave it your call how the Enterprise got the blue box or if Pike knows about it/connects it to his prisoner yet.]

"Where are you from then? If not there?" Level with Pike and he might be able to help you.

[ooc: could be an ensign bought it at an open market, not knowing what it was. can it effect anyone even if it's David's? or is it inert after being used once?]

"Somewhere pretty far away. You probably haven't heard of it." Oh, if Pike's willing to give him a ride home he won't turn it down - but there's something here he wants first.

[OOC: Oh, no, it can be used without limit. Originally it needed another morpher to make it effect someone, but later books had it work for anyone. I'm game for either interpretation.]

"Try me. If it's in this quadrant, we probably have a record of it. You definitely don't look like a Klingon and unless you claim to be Romulan, I don't think that will be a problem."

[ooc: hm, ok maybe the ensign bought in in a "display case" and was told not to touch it.]

"You want me to be a Romulan, I can be a Romulan." Pike will probably think he's talking figuratively, but David's in fact being very literal.

[ooc: sounds like a plan to me.]

Edited at 2012-01-15 01:16 pm (UTC)

Pike shakes his head deadpan. "You don't want to be Romulan." Not that he believed for one second David was, even if no one had ever seen a Romulan before.

"That bad, huh?" David files away that little tidbit of information, it might be useful later. "You're not gonna find any record of me, so you might as well not even bother."

Edited at 2012-01-15 01:25 pm (UTC)

Another nod. Pike squints at David, almost curious. He's starting to get a few ideas. "Why are you so certain no one has come across someone like you before?" Unless....David was a new alien species and he knew humans had never figured that out.

David meets the captain's eyes and smirks, the cocky kid again. "I do a pretty good job of covering my tracks." He also avoids having his blood drawn under any circumstances, which has done more for preserving his anonymity than a string of aliases and alien morphs ever could.

Not that their doctors would need to draw his actual blood to scan it, but they probably didn't know what they were looking for during his initial scan. Pike frowns at that bit of information, "Is that so? Why do you want to remain a secret? Are you a spy for hire?" His mind going back to sabotage of his ship.

"Sometimes." David has no idea how dangerous it is to tell him that - he's thinking mainly just about a way to keep the Captain from dumping him back at the station. If he thinks he's a threat, he'll be less likely to pitch him back into the corrupted and easily escapable labyrinth of Slegabb Five's custody, right?

Edited at 2012-01-15 01:37 pm (UTC)

"How about now? Were you hired to stow away on this ship?" David might be right about that, instead Pike might drag him back to the nearest Federation station for a trial. Not to mention he's going back to the medics to find out exactly what kind of humanoid he is.
