1. Post with your character!
2. Second person to reply will RNG what will happen on your fantastic roadtrip.
3. Pro... fit...?
4. Don't be afraid to hash out scenarios with muns, depending on what number.

It's that time of the year again! You decided to take a road trip! Either to your friends, relative, or perhaps an event, but oh, my goodness, what will happen along the way?

1. BREAK DOWN - Oh, snap, your car decided to break down out in the middle of nowhere. WHAT DO? Is that Leatherface? Will this be "Children of the Corn"?

2. HITCHHIKERS? Is this even a good idea? Threads may also have a third participant. Go wild.

3. WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST HIT? Dude, I hear deer mess up cars... Or I think that was a deer.

4. DON'T MAKE ME TURN THIS CAR AROUND: Alas, you're the parent or the disgruntled friend who has had it up to here with all the fighting in the back. This thread may also have a third or even fourth participant, if you can wing it.

5. OMG, I WANT TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THIS LANDMARK! No, no, and no. You tell that person that they're going to be driven around and they're going to like it.

6. THE GREAT ESCAPE: Either dinosaurs or the mothman is chasing you. Don't stop now.

7. MAKE OUT: For whatever reason, the person you're traveling with in the car. You would love to make out with them and then some.

Edit: You don't have to be in a car. It can be a motorcycle, a bicycle, a bus, a horse, anything you want, as long as it can take you on a road trip!

Dr. Egon Spengler // Ghostbusters


[hope you enjoy watching Ray press his face against the passenger seat window because that's all he's been doing for the last hour and a half.]

Just another mile and we're there. Remember to make a left turn when we get to the -

[and he stops right there. a sign is coming up over the horizon - quite a large one, in fact.


1 mile →

oh. my. god.]

Egon! Did you see that sign?!

[His eyes drift briefly from the road to glance at the humongous and quite gaudy sign as they drive past it.] How could I miss it? [His tone is dryer than usual.]

[Egon says nothing else and makes no indication that he has any intention of stopping to see a freak show.]

[ohohoho, that isn't going to fly, mister.]

We should stop by. [which is to say that they must stop by.] Don't get me wrong, I'm not for the exploitation of the disabled by any means whatsoever, but what if we're onto something here? What the octopus guy really isn't human?

[what if - those two magic words. he grins, clearly getting ahead of himself.]

Come on. It's only one mile. We were going in that direction anyway!

Ray, you said you wanted to get there before it got dark. I know you. If we stop it won't just be for a minute. First you'll want to take photos, then you'll want to take valences, then we'll end up being there all afternoon.

[Peter wakes up from his nap in the back seat just in time.]

We're stopping? Oh good. I need to use the little boy's room.

Not true. I know how to manage time, thank you very much.

[...well, usually. hearing Venkman stir in the back, Ray sighs and glances over his shoulder.]

Egon doesn't want to. There's a tourist attraction up ahead, too; with an octopus man.

[Lets out a louder sigh than necessary.]

I know what's going to happen... but if I'm outnumbered, I'll stop.

[He gives Ray a quick, stern glance.] Fifteen minutes, tops.

[He smirks a bit at the other man's sigh.]

Egon. You know that I've always wanted to see an octopus man.

[It was said dryly. But Pete really did need to make a pit stop.]

Whaddya say, pal?

More than enough time. [if you can't tell already, he's already reaching for his camera bag from the backseat and the PKE Meter.] I can't wait to get a look at this thing up - Oooh! There is is!

["it" just happens to be a very tiny little building - a shack, really - adjacent to an equally small one that looks much more well-maintained and clean; likely a gift shop. Ray almost jumps out of his seat as they drive closer to it.]

I wonder if it has an ink bag? If it does, who wants to help me talk the guy running the show into letting us take a sample?

[TALKING A MILE A MINUTE HERE. this is going to be so amazing.]

[Ray's excitement is making him doubt their ability to keep to their fifteen-minute time limit, but he makes the turn-off anyway, driving up the dirt road to the small "parking lot" with possibly two other cars parked in it.]

Don't make me regret this.

[He parks the car and turns off the engine, slowly unbuckling and keeping a close eye on Ray. He gets out of the car and steps close to Peter, lowering his voice.]

We can't let him out of our sights.

[Getting out of the vehicle himself, he gives Egon a short pat on the shoulder.]

No, you can't.

[He grins and steps ahead toward the attraction.]

(Deleted comment)

[Sorry, not the right one for Egon, pfffff]

Egon finished his cassette tape of classical music and turned it over to listen to Discussions Between Physicists: Ionic Mass. He needed something to distract him during long car rides.

Up ahead, he spotted a car broken down on the side of the road and someone standing next to it. Just the thought of having to sit with a complete stranger in his car for the next two hours made him want to curl up in the fetal position.

Feeling slight guilt at leaving her there, however, Egon suddenly remembered that he'd passed someone going a bit slower a couple miles back. They'd be along soon, ridding him of his guilt entirely.

Contented with his decision, and blatantly avoiding meeting the eyes of the woman as he drove past, Egon mouthed the words along with the discussion about particle physics on the cassette tape as if it was his favorite song.
