Testrun Meme - March

This is an open testrun meme. Posts here may be used in lieu of a sample entry for any applications. For your convenience, we've provided a few prompts, but feel free to make your own!

1. Team Evolution is looking to set up a new machine test near Union. Are you here to help? Stop them? Observe?

2. A day at the races! Today in the Rhyhorn track, it's a complex course with several barricades, vertical climbs, and downhill slopes. Are you a racer? Spectator? What brings you here this fine day?

3. You're out exploring, be it at sea, or perhaps expanding into new, uncharted territories. Where are you? What are you doing?

4. Pokemon Battle! Perhaps it's training, perhaps you're protecting something important, perhaps you're striking out against something vile. Why are you in this fight and what are you doing?

5. Wildcard! Invent a prompt!

Usagi Tsukino ☽Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon ☽Fairy/Psychic

[ Usagi normally isn't anywhere near the race tracks. While she had no problem watching people have a good time, watching the race was the last thing on her mind.

Instead, Usagi is currently at the buffet table that's normally meant for the higher ups that are attending the races, and piling up a plate of delicious finger food goodies. It's the perk of being the daughter of a well respected reporter for the city's most popular (albeit only) radio station because that means she can visit places with her father and mooch enjoy the type of work he does!


[ While it wasn't outside of Usagi's abilities to sneak out and do a little adventuring outside of the city to pass the time (after all, all that homework she still had to do was so boring... going out was just a way of getting fresh air to charge up those brain muscles! ... Really!), ending up at least half a day's walk from the city was not what she had planned.

Why was she so far out, you ask? Well...

... Stop looking at me like that, Pinky. That tree looked familiar and I thought it was a short cut!

[ That's right. The Cleffa that's currently walking next to her companion is staring dubiously at Usagi's excuse. ]

We're not lost! Stop saying that! [ Yep. They were lost. ]

[Hmm, well, that was a face--or, rather, the back of a head--that she didn't recognize. How interesting. Lux wondered how close she could get before she noticed. While it was hard to sneak in an outfit like hers, she did try.

Camille, her Dratini, made that very hard.]

[Luxanna, what are you doing? Don't you know hungry Snorlaxes charge when bothered?]

[Camille, that isn't very nice.]

[Whether or not Usagi understood the Dratini, her partner or both, both are still watching her and aren't exactly being sly about it.]

*OOC Note: Purple for Camille the Dratini, blue for Lux.

[personal profile] inthenameofthemoon 2014-03-11 08:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[ There's a slight tug on Usagi's consciousness -- that kind of nagging feeling like someone is talking about you in an unflattering way. At first, Usagi's trying to ignore it, because food....

But soon she can't exactly pretend it's not happening and finally starts looking around until she notices where the uneasy feeling is come.

Oh. The girl was so cute in that outfit!

Um... [ Usagi has to look around real quick just to make sure she's the one being watched before finally confronting the elephant in the room. ] ...can I help you?

[personal profile] ladyofluminosity 2014-03-11 08:54 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lux watches her, closing in before stopping suddenly as Usagi turns. Taking the other blond aback, she almost laughs. You really do stand out here, Usagi.

It was cute.]

I was about to ask the same question. I do not believe we have met. [And that means she's probably in a different social circle. She didn't realize common folk would be here too. Suddenly this event got much more interesting.

Camille watches, a dry expression on her face. You're in the way, Usagi. What are you doing here and what are you wearing? Wow. They let people just walk around looking like that?]
inthenameofthemoon: (skeptical .)

[personal profile] inthenameofthemoon 2014-03-11 10:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Ah, w-well, I'm not really from around here.. [ Where else would you have come from, Usagi? Mentally, she hits herself for such a lame answer because it was clear that the girl she was talking to was way high society.

They probably could smell lower class people from miles away...
] I mean, I don't usually come to the races! I'm more of a shopping girl myself.

[ Well, it was an improvement, but still... ]

My name's Usagi Tsukino. I'm actually here with my Dad while he's doing work.
ladyofluminosity: (05)

[personal profile] ladyofluminosity 2014-03-11 11:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[How perfectly droll. Luxanna, could they go now? Camille looked at her partner and let out a melodic hum. It would reflect badly upon them if they were seen with... her sort.

Lux didn't seem to be listening, however, and smiled even more, even giggling a bit. If she's at all phased by the difference in social class, it's not immediately apparent. No, she actually looks like she's having fun.]

Oh, I see! My name is Luxanna, and this is my friend Camille. It truly is a pleasure.

Your father, what does he do?
inthenameofthemoon: (hesitant .)

[personal profile] inthenameofthemoon 2014-03-12 06:22 am (UTC)(link)
It's nice to meet you, Luxanna! [ And with that Usagi gives a polite and kind smile to Camille, bending her head down in a sort of bow to the Dratini. She might be middle class, but she still respects anyone who's nice! ] And you too, Camille.

He's actually one of the field reporters for the Union Tower Radio. I think he's actually waiting down on the field for the first place winner of the race!

[ And like that, Usagi turns to look at the race track and tries to squint to see if her father is in view, but doesn't see him. ]

He's probably waiting down in the shade right now. He gets to go to all the cool places around the city, so sometimes I go along with him if he's okay with it.
ladyofluminosity: (05)

[personal profile] ladyofluminosity 2014-03-13 04:48 am (UTC)(link)
[Hmm. At least she has manners. Camille hums a simple greeting.]

A reporter?

[As Usagi goes to look, Lux riffles through her purse, pulling something out and putting them up to Usagi's eyes. A pair of opera glasses.]

Do you see him now?

[She could probably see the track much better than she could before as well, actually being able to make out the racers with vivid detail.]

That sounds like fun.

[ People lost in the forest aren't Haruka's business. Leave that sort of thing to the Rangers - it is important, but Haruka has deeper matters on her mind. /pastel still shot She passes people in the forest all the time without giving them a second glance.

Except she actually knows this one. Or thinks she does.

Her Divine Defense Force accoutrements (uniform, mask) are quickly stashed in her pack, so that when she steps out from behind a tree she just looks like she's out for a hike. Have a curious smirk, Usagi. ]

This isn't the way to the newspaper office.

[ They've been going around this one grove of trees for awhile, and Pinky is getting quite irritated that Usagi's been ignoring all of her suggestions to go in a different direction.

So much so that the Cleffa is about ready to head butt Usagi hard enough in the legs to get her to pay attention, but is stopped short as she hears the sound of rustling and then a voice to break the silence. The little pokemon quickly ducks behind Usagi's legs despite hopeful look on her human partners' face as she turns to Haruka with a big fake overconfident smile.

She can't let the other woman know she's lost. That would be embarrassing.

A-ahahahaha! I know that! I was.. just... taking a breather and doing a little exploring! .. yeah!

[ So convincing, Usagi. Pinky can't help but paw palm at how over the top the excuse was. ]
actsmagnificent: (wink)

[personal profile] actsmagnificent 2014-03-11 09:45 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Hey, she'll let it slide if you want her to. At least you brought a Pokémon with you, even if....well....Moving on.

So hey, maybe Haruka actually believed you! She looks interested, in any case. ]

Find anything good so far?
inthenameofthemoon: (bashful .)

[personal profile] inthenameofthemoon 2014-03-11 10:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Not a thing! Just a lot of trees and plants... and bugs...

[ The last thing causes Usagi's face to scrunch up in disgust. She and bugs were not good friends. ]

I mean, I saw a couple of pretty flowers while walking around, but nothing really eye catching? Pinky's been helping me look for things, haven't you?

[ And like that, the Cleffa just starts climbing up Usagi's side until she's found a nice spot in between the two buns on Usagi's head. She just nods gently, cooing a soft 'Fa!' in response. ]
actsmagnificent: (cruise)

[personal profile] actsmagnificent 2014-03-12 02:54 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Dear gods, it fits between the dumplings. That's adorable. Haruka visibly softens. ]

I don't suppose you're headed anywhere in particular, then.

[ Are you lost? She shares a secret grin with the Cleffa for a moment. Your partner's lost, isn't she? ]
inthenameofthemoon: ([usagi] that's what she said!)

[personal profile] inthenameofthemoon 2014-03-12 11:11 pm (UTC)(link)
Nope! Just wandering around and seeing where it takes us!

[ Which is the opposite direction of Union City. The Cleffa just shakes her head at her current ride and then gives Haruka a dead pan look, because Usagi being lost is exactly what's going on here and she's glad that someone is on the same page as her. ]
actsmagnificent: (pastel)

[personal profile] actsmagnificent 2014-03-13 03:10 am (UTC)(link)
[ .....oi. (You're a saint, Pinky the Cleffa.) Haruka shrugs. ]

I wouldn't recommend that. [ Lean in for effect. Her lips curl slightly, and her voice grows softer. A hand brushes Usagi's cheek. ] It's a dangerous world, kitten. There's all sorts of things in these woods that'd gobble you up.

threemoms: (♄ absol-utely)


[personal profile] threemoms 2014-03-11 03:41 pm (UTC)(link)
[ The perks of being considered the ward of a famous racer and several members of the upper crust? The ability to get into the VIP area of the races.

The downside? Too many people wondering who she was.

So Hotaru came up with the reasonable solution of watching the races in her Absol form. This generally worked out pretty well for her; her Pressure kept most people from getting too close, and as a Pokémon, she didn't have to deal with anybody asking questions or trying to start conversation. The only negative was that she was an entire three and a half feet tall, so she hand to jump up on the railing to actually see the race.

Haruka was down there racing. Hotaru couldn't (or wouldn't) openly cheer for her, but she could at least watch. ]
inthenameofthemoon: (cheeky .)

[personal profile] inthenameofthemoon 2014-03-11 09:01 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Now that Usagi's plate was full enough for round one, the girl decides that finally paying attention to the race was in order! ]

Come on, Pinky. Let's go see how everyone's done, okay?

[ The small Cleffa that had been at her side nods excitedly and starts climbing up Usagi's clothes until she's fully situated on her shoulder. Usagi makes sure that her pokemon companion is well situated before they walk over towards the railing to get a better view of the race track and take the spot that's right next to the rather curious looking Absol.

She doesn't say anything at first, instead opting to give her Cleffa a delicious treat while they're watching the races, but soon she can't help but look down at the Absol and then offer her plate of treats from the buffet.

Would you like one?
threemoms: (♄ why are you 'awww'ing)

[personal profile] threemoms 2014-03-12 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
[ Hotaru pauses a moment. One on paw, interacting with people. On the other, treats were good.

After a moment's consideration, she leans forward and pulls off a few with her teeth. No opposable thumbs, whatcha gonna do?

She nods once in thanks. ]
inthenameofthemoon: (innocent .)

[personal profile] inthenameofthemoon 2014-03-12 06:24 am (UTC)(link)
[ Usagi can't help but giggle at the gesture, but once she knows that Hotaru is able to grab what she wants, she just nods in return before pulling the plate closer to her so she can snack.

She keeps the plate at a good distance between her and Hotaru, that way in case the Absol wants to eat any more, she's welcome to it!

Is there a racer that you're cheering for?
incousinswithyou: (ominous chuckle)


[personal profile] incousinswithyou 2014-03-11 04:01 pm (UTC)(link)
[awww. It's kind of cute, how lost you are. Michiru will approach, her Ralts curiously following. It doesn't look like she was doing much, outside of relaxing by the small lake.]

Out for a stroll, Usagi?
inthenameofthemoon: ([usagi] well you see it's like this...)

[personal profile] inthenameofthemoon 2014-03-11 09:09 pm (UTC)(link)
[ GEH. It'd be one thing if it was a total stranger finding her wandering around the woods like a lost little child.. it's another if it's someone you're completely acquainted with in some form or fashion.

Well, Usagi can handle this! She's not a professional actress, but she can put on a good show! (for better or for worse, who knew...)

Y-yeah! Well, you know how it is... sometimes you just want to get out into nature and .. stroll?

[ Usagi's trying to cover it all up with a smile, but, with those embarrassed red cheeks of hers and the smile reflecting more nervousness than anything, the cover up excuse doesn't really work... ]
incousinswithyou: (sassitude)

[personal profile] incousinswithyou 2014-03-11 10:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[her smile doesn't falter. On the contrary, it (almost) looks like she's even more amused.]

Of course. If I am intruding in any way, I'll take my leave. Reflecting on nature is a task best undertaken alone, yes?
inthenameofthemoon: (relieved .)

[personal profile] inthenameofthemoon 2014-03-11 10:42 pm (UTC)(link)

[ Wait. That was a little too eager. Usagi's just going to clear her throat and try that again. ]

No, of course not! It's a lot more fun if you're sharing nature with someone!

[ Someone that could potentially get her out of being lost in this forest. ]
incousinswithyou: (that's what she said)

[personal profile] incousinswithyou 2014-03-11 11:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh? Is that so?

[hmmm] Well, I was thinking of going another mile before heading back. You're welcome to join me, of course.

[Michiru, stop finding this amusing and just get her home.]
inthenameofthemoon: ([usagi] wouldn't that be nice~?)

[personal profile] inthenameofthemoon 2014-03-12 06:28 am (UTC)(link)
I'd love to! Thank you for inviting me!

[ And just like that, Usagi bounds on over to stand next to Michiru, the biggest relieved smile all over her face. Yes! She wasn't going to be lost anymore! ]

Is it downtime at the theater, Michiru? Papa hasn't mentioned anything about any new plays lately.
