15 Characters Meme

Because it is a well known fact that a person can't mention the 15 Characters Meme without doing it again, and I haven't since last February, so it must be time...

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"

3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

Okay, I'll play...

3, 8 and 14 are putting on a version of Hamlet... which parts would they take?

Jan. 12th, 2014 05:53 pm (UTC)
Thanks! And that's a new question. :-)

(I'm laughing already...)

Ach, I don't have time to play properly this month. But you definitely should.

Not at all influenced by recent Sherlock... 14 and 11 are getting married, because Reasons. 1 is helping, 13 is hindering. What's the why and do they make it to the altar/beyond?

2, 4, 6, 8, we're a very random cheer squad. Who's the captain? Who's the belle of the ball? Who's the anchor underpinning it all? Does the pyramid fall down?

15 is made supreme ruler of the globe. How do we feel, we minions?

Thanks! :-)

8, 9, 11 and 12 are required to host a party - does it come off, and if so, what disasters befall?
Jan. 12th, 2014 07:57 pm (UTC)
Thank you! :-)

Good luck!

7 and 10 get signed up for ballroom dancing lessons. How does it go?

3 finds a dinosaur. What do they do, and does 5 agree with this plan?
Jan. 12th, 2014 07:57 pm (UTC)
Thank you! (Because all memes can be improved with a dinosaur, of course.)

5, 11, 2 and 12 challenge the Knightmare dungeon. Which one wears the helmet while the other three shout advice? And does their quest succeed?

3 is trying to redecorate; is 13 a help or a hindrance?

Why is 9 covered in cake and chained to 4?

(ETA: I keep reading your first sentence as starting with "It is a truth universally acknowledged...")

Thanks. And, well, that was the sort of sense of it, really!

6, 7 and 9 have to rescue 10 from certain doom. How doomed is 10?
Jan. 13th, 2014 01:23 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :-)

1, 7 & 13 are pirates. Who is the captain, who is first mate, and who is best suited to navigate? Will they terrorise the seas, or will the seas just point and laugh?

3 is standing for parliament. Which political party are they representing?

6 & 7 are getting married, and wish to adopt 8. Is it likely to be a harmonious household?

5 & 15 get thrown back in time to 1066 in a freak accident. The fate of England rests on the shoulders of one or both of them. Is history safe?
Jan. 13th, 2014 01:23 pm (UTC)
Thank you! And, yay, pirates! :-)

Yay! I still love this meme to itty bitty pieces! (Hmm. Since I just mentioned it, does that mean I have to do it again? It might, almost, except I don't know that, at this point, there are too many interesting characters I haven't already done multiple times. Not that that's necessarily an obstacle...)


7 and 13 wake up together in a perfectly boring, normal house in suburbia. They both have amnesia and don't remember who they are. What conclusions do they draw about their relationship and how they got there? Do they eventually (or rapidly) manage to figure out what's going on?

1 has been following and spying on 9. Why? Does 9 find out?

A movie (or, if more suitable, a play) is made about 12's life. Uh, one that's made in 12's own universe, that is. Which is bound to be different from whatever story 12 is in in our universe. If that makes sense. What's it like, and how does 12 feel about how they're depicted?
Jan. 13th, 2014 01:24 pm (UTC)
I don't think daft things I write should ever be taken too seriously; on the other hand, it's not as if I'm going to complain if you do this meme again!

And thanks! :-)
Jan. 13th, 2014 01:27 pm (UTC)
Well, my brain seems to think "Anytime you think about this meme, you can't possibly not then do it!" is a perfectly valid statement. But I might or might not listen to it this time. Depending on how much free time I end up with. :)
Jan. 13th, 2014 01:30 pm (UTC)
:loL: That's not something I can argue with, really! :-)

I love this meme!

4 & 7 have been married for a decade. What ultimately causes their divorce?

1, 2 & 12 are housemates. What is their most frequent argument about? And which character on the list would they all hope would answer their ad for a fourth housemate, and why?

8 & 14 are stuck in a museum after closing hours. How did that come to pass, and what do they do about it?

Thank you! (And it is a great meme, yes. :-D)

7 has decided to bake cookies. Meanwhile, 4 is thwarting a terrorist plot. How are the cookies related?

2 has found a magic crystal which will allow its user to change (temporarily) into any animal they desire. What animal does 2 choose?

*grins to self* Thanks!

13 and 14 have a day out at the seaside. When they have a row while eating fish and chips and getting menaced by seagulls on the promenade, what is it about? Who has the train tickets and storms off with them?
Jan. 13th, 2014 01:25 pm (UTC)
:loL: Thanks!
Jan. 13th, 2014 09:59 pm (UTC)
9 and 14 are lost in the jungle! Only 4 knows where they've gone! Will 4 do anything to help, or will they be left to make their own way back? And either way, do they make it?
Jan. 14th, 2014 10:10 am (UTC)
Thanks! :-)
