AM I DOIN IT WRONG? Am I doing it right? Please use this post for any concerns/complaints/random thoughts &c about how I play Tommy.

THIS COMPLETELY VIOLATES CONTINUITY. ngl guys, I am trying but comic book canon at large is so vast and complicated that it's terrified me for twenty years, to the point where I've avoided them entirely until recently. I'm trying to stay informed but if I do something unpardonably stupid or say the wrong person is dead/resurrected/evil/whatever for the time, please feel free to point it out. Politely, preferably. I will try to make amends.

DO YOU WANT TO PLAY WITH ME. PLZ? If you'd like to plot with me that is a-okay too, just leave a message! Or hit me up on AIM or via e-mail or something, idek, smoke signals, whatever! ilu. ♥

ICONS. Unless otherwise noted all icons used in this journal are made by me. You are more than welcome to use them if you'd like! I would appreciate a credit at [ profile] team_sociopath but, moreso, if you're going to borrow them I would really love it if you'd leave a note here and let me know. ;) But of course, not mandatory, because hah it's not like I drew them.

STANDARD DISCLAIMER: I am so far from actually being Tommy in any respect that it's positively ludicrous. It should go without saying that I'm not involved with Marvel, or involved with people involved with Marvel, and probably not really involved with people involved with people involved with Marvel. Hell, I barely understand any of it, but I'm doing my best. This journal is a work of fiction, I make no money, I just amuse myself 'cause I'm odd like that. Plz don't sue me. ♥

So this morning I woke up and looked in the mirror, and looked like Billy. And I was kinda pissed, because like, that creepy body-switching curse just happened last month to me and Euphie, so not fair that I pull it two months in a row.

But, nope. No blue glowy magic stuff. I look weird but I feel fine. Still speedy.

And Billy still looks like Billy. So now we both look like Billy.

I don't get it.

Okay, so today I learned something.

If you get stupid cursed and do something crazy, like basically take over a bar and buy everyone several rounds of drinks, because you think you can afford it and you tell the bartender to put it on your tab, you have to pay that tab. Even if you can prove you aren't whoever you said you were that day and the whole thing's just a crazy misunderstanding. Also, if you blew up broke a few chairs at some point in the evening, you have to pay for those too.

Even if it's totally not your fault.

So uh.

I need a job.

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Tommy Shepherd. I'm really fast. Like, you wouldn't believe how fast. It'll take you longer to tell me where to bring something than it'll take me to get it there. Also, you know, I fight bad guys and save the world while looking awesome on a regular basis, but I'm not sure if that's a marketable skill here.

Also, if you spoke to me last weekend, basically ignore everything I said. I'm really not that much of a jerk.

[At first it's hard to tell what's going on-- the screen's filled with a warm darkness, an indistinct shadowy shape moving restlessly in the background. Before a viewer has time to do more than wonder at it, a wide rectangle of bright light spreads over the screen, illuminating raw wood surfaces and piles of hay, and a large gray horse snuffling in the background.

A boy comes in through the now-open door with a bucket, which he hangs in the horse's stall. He absently pats the animal's nose, then turns to look at something off the edge of the screen.

The horse, apparently irked at not being the center of attention anymore, cranes its neck and leans over to bite the boy's shoulder.]

the video chooses that point to cut off. Oops.]

[The camera is obviously propped up on a bathroom counter, and it shows a girl in a baggy t-shirt with a raggedly-cut v-neck posing and preening in front of the mirror. She's got a cell phone in hand and occasionally snaps dramatic, Myspace-style photos of herself in the mirror. White-haired and skinny, she's pretty, if a little clumsy in her posing. Probably because she's a sixteen year old boy.]

So at first I thought this was like, the worst curse ever.

[He pauses and turns to flash the camera a winning grin, a little cocky.]

But then I realized, it could be kind of awesome.

[Smirking, Tommy twists his long hair up with his free hand and practices a flirty pout, before leaning over (flashing a little cleavage) to turn off the camera.]

So in not-lame news, it's been almost a month and Godzilla hasn't destroyed our apartment or anything. I guess randomly burst into flames is a thing rabbits grow out of. You know, if they're the kind of rabbit who ever bursts into flames to begin with.

So even if he's not a super-rabbit, Godzilla's still pretty cool. And makes life slightly less mind-numbingly boring in between curses. Which is, actually, probably the lamest thing about this place-- there's nothing to do and nowhere to go, when nothing's happening.


So, 'sup, City?

You can pace the room if you’d like, but it’s barely a cage; long enough to lay out on the floor in either direction, but not much bigger. At first it seems empty; but after a time the shallow sound of breathing is perceptible, coming from one of the walls. There’s a bed there, little more than a cot, with a supine body on it. Was that there before? Didn’t you walk along the edges of this cell, running a hand over the smooth walls?

It’s still too dark to make out his features, but if you reach out to touch him you’ll find he’s dressed in plain scrubs, bandages here and there on his limbs, and an IV hanging from the wall beside him. He’s totally unconscious.

If you’re anything more or other than human, whatever abilities you have don’t work here. There’s no way out. The walls, the plated door, are too heavy for any shouts to pass to the world outside. There’s no one with a key. No one who cares you’re here, even if they know-- and somehow that thought, when it occurs to you, is worse than anything else. You’ve been left here, and no one’s coming to get you.

You’re stuck.

Now what?
