455. Put on your game face

the power games meme

This meme is about gaining, using and abusing power over others. Now with more options! Warning: contains possible triggers.

How to play

- Post your character with their name and canon in the subject line. You can also give your preferences if you do/don't want to thread anything R-rated or above.
- When replying, go to RNG and roll numbers 1-2 to get a scenario type, then 1-16 to select a scenario.
- Play out that scenario! Please respect others' wishes if they don't want to play out a particular scene.

i. manipulation

01. Mind games. You're messing with this person's head, using whatever you know about them to your advantage. Words are barbs, and everyone has a weakness.
02. Stay close to me. You're not letting this person out of your sight. And you don't care what extreme measures you have to go to in order to do it.
03. Blackmail. You know something and you're not afraid to use it against them. Now they have to do what you want.
04. Love makes you do things. It's because you love them that you're making them do this. If they truly loved you, wouldn't they do as you say?
05. For your own good. It doesn't matter what the other person wants. You know what's best, and you're going to force it on them whether they like it or not.
06. Break you down. You're going to make the other person think they're worthless. Crush their self-esteem, break them until they're entirely helpless.
07. Betrayal. You made a promise, and you broke it. Or perhaps you betrayed this person's trust. It's all part of gaining the upper hand.
08. Lies, lies, lies. Fool the other person with words and you'll have them wrapped around your finger in no time.
09. Sob story. A little bit of emotional manipulation never hurt anyone, right? You're going to use this person's feelings for you against them. Make them feel sorry!
10. In your debt. Look, you saved them. The other person wouldn't be here without you. They should show some gratitude.
11. I need you. You're depending on the other person to do as you say. They're the only one who can help.
12. Turn up the charm. There's nothing like a bit of good old-fashioned flirting to get someone eating out of your hand.
13. Negotiating. There's a bargain to be struck, if only you can find the right words – and the right leverage.
14. For my sake. Why should they do as you say? Because you're the one asking.
15. The truth. It's the thing that hurts most of all.
16. Your choice. Combine any of the above scenarios or choose your own! It's up to you.

ii. mastery

01. Pretty little puppet. You can command this person at will. They're a plaything, to do with as you please.
02. You're mine. You own this person, and you're going to make sure they know it.
03. No escape. Maybe you've locked the other person up somewhere, maybe you've got them in chains. Either way, they're not going anywhere.
04. Put in your place. That's it. The other person made one too many caustic comments, got in your way one last time. Now you're going to show them who's boss.
05. Force of strength. Nothing like a good old fashioned brawl to really prove who's stronger.
06. Cornered. Finally, you've got them alone. This is the moment you've been waiting for – and perhaps the moment they've been dreading.
07. Turning the tables. They thought they'd won, but here's your chance! Maybe it's time to give them a taste of their own medicine, or maybe you have a new trick up your sleeve.
08. Punishment. The other person has done something wrong, or maybe just something you don't like. Now you're going to punish them.
09. Back and forth. I have a laser gun! Well, I have a lightsaber! Whatever it is, you're closely matched and trying to outdo each other.
10. Make them beg. You hold all the power and whatever it is they want or need, you're going to make them beg for it.
11. Call my bluff. You're making claims you can't back up. Can you bluff your way out of this, or will the other person catch on?
12. Time to pay. The other person owes you, and it's time for them to pay up.
13. Show of dominance. You're not actually going to hurt this person. You're just going to show them that you could.
14. The most precious thing. Whatever is most important to the other person, you're going to take it away. Because you can.
15. Consequences. You warned them. They failed, and now they're going to pay the price.
16. Your choice. Combine any of the above scenarios or choose your own! It's up to you.

Charles Xavier | X-Men: First Class

ii - 3 which could be turned around as we go if you like :)

[Yes! One of the humans was theirs, the Daleks had captured one. They weren't going to exterminate him yet, no. He would be useful in finding out more about his own kind. The Daleks were out to destroy all races inferior to their own....including mutants.

Charles will find himself in a small sterile looking cell, not chained because the Daleks have superior weaponry and technology. He can't possibly escape.

The door slides open and one of them glides into the room, his voice a clipped metallic tone] You will tell us of your kiiiind. [that was not a question]

Sorry I am so slow!!! (also I don't know Who so :( )

[ The chaining was unusual, the sterile room a worry-- had this been the sort of thing Erik had been worrying about for so long? His head lifts when he catches sight of... of... angry kitchen and bathroom utensils with wiggly arms coming in and making demands. For a moment he stares before the facade cracks and he can't resist the laugh that rumbles up from his chest.

Sean and Alex were so grounded for this, ]
Very funny, kids, but now is not the time.

that's fine! I could send a clip or two if you need a visual for them?

[The large pepperpot is not amused. The suction arm shoots out, pinning Charles to the wall forcefully as the voice continues, devoid of emotion] You. will. obey. [The eye stalk seeming to stare right at him with it's unblinking blue light]

[The armor in fact holds a creature from another planet. The Daleks, once human looking, now stripped down to a squid-like, one eyed creature. Genetically bred to have no weaknesses, especially human emotions. Charles may be able to sense the ordered thoughts of the Dalek. he lives only to exterminate those inferior to the Daleks. Which is pretty much everyone else.]

That would be lovely.

[ His mouth opens and then closes, perplexed for a moment as he realizes this is not some horrible teenage prank of made of his kitchen materials and alloys at Erik's assistance. That it was not Sean or Alex or even perhaps a blackmailed Hank in the room with him but actually something entirely foreign to him. For a moment he just breathes, because the realization is both fascinating and terrifying. ]

You're going to have to be more specific than that.

[The clipped metallic staccatto continues] Your species is di-viii-ded. We have recieved transmissions regarding mutant kind. You are the expert in this new hu-man race. You will ex-plaaain. You will tell us all that you know about mu-tants or be ex-ter-minated! [At that, the Dalek finally releases him from the wall, keeping a menacing distance between them]

[crash course in Daleks:

fan made Hitchhiker's Guide entry on Daleks (but it's very well done!)
