Julia's Truth or Dare: A High-energy Anniversary!!! [Closed]
« on: September 15, 2017, 12:45:26 PM »
Before the sun could even rise, and as the clock struck 4:30AM, Julia's alarm would go off; filling her room with the sound of shitty idol pop. Nearly falling out of her bed in excitement, Julia would shoot up and say "Haaaaaaaaaaapppyyyyyyyy anniversarrrrrrrrrrrrrrryyy!" as if she were talking to a group of her friends. Kind of weird, but some of that pent up energy needed to be released. First, deciding to change out of her sleepwear, Julia would grab her usual school uniform for the day, as it was a Monday and she did have classes. Although basically the generic female school uniform, Julia would simply wear a long-sleeved white button-up shirt without the overcoat, always making sure to leave the top 3 buttons undone while tying a brown cardigan around her waist to be somewhat trendy looking. After getting dressed, she would tie her plain brunette hair into a makeshift ponytail while simultaneously trying to use her other hand to brush her teeth, something she's managed to learn over her many years of mastering the "morning rush". After completing her ritual, she would rush out the door, planning to get breakfast later; party preparations were her top priority right now.
         
The events of the next couple of hours transpired in a flash, and Julia herself couldn't believe how quickly it went. After running to one of the many 24/7 Vale liquor stores, she ran back to her dorm to organize and clean, mostly because her roommates left a mess when they went on missions without her for some reason. Needing somewhere to place the packages of beer and bottles of wine she bought, she would look to her roommates mini fridge...which would only fit the beer. Dangerously throwing the wine onto a random bed, it would have to do for now while she went about her daily class schedule.

Making sure to grab her signature megaphone before she left, Julia would head to her first class of the day: combat basket weaving, with it's motto being "You never knew you'd need a basket in a fight until now"! Following this were subjects like Grimm studies, weaponry shenanigans, and a bunch of other fun subjects. After a long day of classes, Julia would spend her afternoon socializing, gossiping, etc. with her friends like usual. **Do you get the point of this portion yet? It's to show how fucking normal her day is, and that nobody cares about the anniversary. I'll save you some shitty exposition and let's skip straight to the ToD, shall we?**

Finally ending her day at 8PM, Julia wouldn't be tired or relaxed like most people. About as pumped up as some drug addicts, she would pace around the room waiting for her guests, megaphone in hand.

And that first guest arrived not in a flash, not in some over dramatic fashion, but by opening the door with a loud "thud!" and stepping in.

Walking in, a redhaired girl in what could only be described as a completely casual outfit consisting of a jacket, a t-shirt, jeans, and combat boots. Her light blue eyes looked around the room, a poster in her right hand. Looking at Julia, she tilted her head, "Heyo, name's Tristan, friends call me Tris. But this is where that Truth or dare thing is, right?"

"Right on the money, Tris." Out of nowhere, someone glowing neon pink was leaning on the doorframe where a second ago there was no-one. Letting the color fade from his body, he entered the room with a spring in his step, as if he had been waiting for this moment for a while now. "Hope I didn't surprise you. Didn't want to be late, so I pulled a few strings. I'm Setsuna, and you must be Julia. Pleased to meet you two, and to make your acquaintance." He bowed with a flourish.

Mao walked down the hallway, looking from one side to the other and back in search for the room; he was completely unfamiliar with this section of the student dorms. Turning a corner, he could hear voices coming down the hall. As he approached the door, he took a deep breath before stepping in. "Hey, guys!"In the room were 5 guys: 4 on their respective bunks and the presumed guest sitting at a desk.

"Uh, are you looking for Julia's place?" someone said as they made a gesture. "It's...right around the corner".

Mao's faced turned red as fire Dust. "Oh. Thanks."

Mao left, turned the next corner, and sure enough, there was another open doorway. He approached more cautiously this time, taking a quick peek inside before entering. His face was still a bit red. "Hey, what's up everyone?" He laughed nervously. "Hey Tristan. Hey Setsuna". He was only vaguely aware of them by virtue of being in the same grade year.

Through the halls of the student dorms, an off-pitch, muffled humming with a distinct lack of proper rhythm echoed down obnoxiously, disturbing any proper peace and overall making the entire area around the source: Zwei Carter quite uncomfortable and awkward as he carelessly hummed some half-remembered song he had heard in the morning. Finding his way down the halls, he arrived at the dorm that he figured was probably, hopefully the correct one.

Approaching the doorframe, Zwei didn't stop his silly humming as he moved ever closer, giving a half-assed and lazy salute with two fingers before greeting everyone there with a "Hey Kids, ready to play? I'll have you guys know that I am the undefeated champion of this game!". Obviously lying. While Zwei was certainly older than the average first year, it was still certainly an odd greeting but it just came naturally to him, maybe the groove of his amazing music had filled him with confidence and caused him to feel mature.

Zwei Carter "You wanted me back, so I'm back!"
Zwei had his name a year before the dog existed in the show by the way.

Alexandra excitedly trotted down the hallways of Beacon's student dormitories.  An upperclassman was hosting a Truth or Dare session.  How exciting!  Turning the corner, she saw an open door, among all the other doors, which were closed, in that wing of the dormitories.  Reasoning that that was her destination, she walked up.  Peaking her head through the door, she said "Uhm hello!  Is this for truth or dare?"

Alexandra took a quick look around and saw bottles of various alcohols.  "Yep, this is the place," she confirmed to herself.   Almost immediately Alexandra noticed a certain masked student in the room.  "Zwei!" she exclaimed, entering the room and approaching her teammate.  "I didn't know you signed up for the Truth or Dare game, too."  She then introduced herself to the other students present.

The sounds of multiple different voices echoing out of the open doorway made it rather easy for Isabelle to guess which room in particular would be hosting the game. Even though she walked along slowly, her mind was racing. Before this, she would have never imagined that someone she hardly knew would invite her to any sort of get-together, let alone someone popular. And yet, here she was, about to walk into a game of truth or dare. In a moment of both excitement and extreme anxiety, she stopped dead in her tracks in the hallway, making sure to mentally go over the list of guidelines she had set for herself. First, don't act like a god damned creep. Be friendly, but not too friendly. Second, do everything they said. While she had never actually played truth or dare, she knew enough about it to be aware of how insane it could get. Caving into peer pressure would be totally fine if it meant being able to climb the social ladder! Most importantly of all however, and the one that she had deemed to be the most difficult to accomplish, would be properly managing her alcohol consumption to avoid getting absolutely wasted. Nobody likes an annoying drunk, but at the same time, she'd certainly have to get intoxicated to avoid acting like a nervous wreck. Finding a good balance would surely secure her the keys to new friendships! Maybe.

After looking at the room number to confirm that she was in the right place, Isabelle slunk into the room, giving a brief wave and cheerful greeting directed at anyone who may have been looking. ”Hi.” Among the vaguely familiar faces was a single masked one, Zwei. Of course, she had known he’d be there after reading the list of guests, but it had slipped her mind up until this point. Spotting him made her slightly less anxious, as she knew that at least one person here wouldn’t be judging her if she were to act in an unusual way. Still, he had somebody talking to him, so approaching him would have to wait. Not knowing what to do otherwise, she just… stood there. Even if she was appearing to be handling this situation like a normal person, she doubted herself immensely. She smiled a little at everyone, while simultaneously dying on the inside from the awkwardness that was hopefully felt by her alone.

Surprised by all of her guests arriving at the same time, Julia would grab her handy-dandy megaphone and wander over near the door where all her guests had gathered. Quickly unraveling her hair out of its ponytail to appear more casual, Julia would loudly speak into her microphone [while still notably being right near everyone anyways] saying "Hello my lovely guests! I'm so glad you could make it! In case you don't know for some reason, I'm Julia! Then motioning to the spacious area near the beds, Julia would continue by saying Come on and sit in a circle over here when you guys are done getting situated and acquainted! By the by, beer is in the mini fridge and that wine shit is on the table! For our first turn, I'll let our friend Isabelle throw out the first truth or dare to anyone of her choice!" Then plopping herself down, Julia would wring her fingers in excitement for the memorable truths and dares that would inevitably come out of this game.

As Julia yelled through the megaphone, Isabelle frowned and used her hands to press her faunus ears against her head, trying to not have her eardrums explode. Even with that, she could more than clearly hear everything that was being said. 'Whoa.' Isabelle hadn't been expecting to be put on the spot right off the bat, so to say she was surprised would be an understatement. Still, the game needed to start, so she had to think quick. Luckily, she had created a small list of both truths and dares in her head long before her arrival to avoid randomly coming up with something dumb on the spot. More important was the process of choosing someone. As she moved to sit on the floor, she looked at each individual in the room, attempting to recall their names. After a few moments of silent contemplation, she nodded.

"Alright. Mao." She didn't know him very well at all, but the same could be said about the majority of the other people in the room. Going off of what little knowledge she had of the game, she settled on picking a truth first, even if it was probably extremely typical to start with. "Truth. What, uh..." Isabelle held her hands together, fiddling with her thumbs as she chose her question. "Is there anything about yourself that you don't like, that you'd change if given the opportunity?"

In the span between Isabelle getting selected to go first and then picking him, Mao managed to grab a drink from the fridge and plop himself down on a bed. He was caught off-guard by a triple entente of the unexpected: getting picked first, having his choice made for him, and the innocence of the question. He did his best to shrug it off, trying to just go with the flow of the situation.

"My dad was a beast who could go toe to toe against Grimm with his bare fists! I...," Mao scratched his cheek lightly with a finger, "am not quite there yet, so if there were anything I could change about myself, it would be that". He took a sip from his drink and smirked. "Hopefully that didn't bring down the mood too much". He took another swig of his drink, glancing around the room as he did. His eyes quickly landed on an individual. "Setsuna: Truth," he said as he leaned forward toward him, "or dare?"

Having swiped a beer from the fridge (what was the legal age to drink? Not that he really cared at the moment) and partaken of the beverage within, Setsuna was feeling pretty bold. Must be the beer. Anyway, when challenged by Mao, he didn't let that opportunity pass by. "Dare." He fired back, looking confident. "Hit me with what you got."

Mao raise in drink into the air in toast of Setsuna and took another sip. He wasn't sure what to expect of Setsuna, but his response brought upon him a great amount of respect. "Okay. I dare you you to...," Mao stopped to think. He honestly hadn't thought ahead that far. "make bull horns with your fingers and run down the hall shouting 'Come get me, cowboy!'". He didn't want to get too crazy just yet; he just wanted to get the ball rolling.

With a great big confident grin on his face, Setsuna tipped his head back and drained the remainder of his beer in one long chug, then in a blatant show of over-exaggerated strength crushed the empty can in his fist. "Done," he cried, leaping to his feet, rushing out the door and shouting "Come get me, cowboy!" as damn loud as he could, undoubtedly drawing attention and making people wonder if he'd gone stark raving mad. Natural reaction, really--someone with finger horns shouting and running down the hallway was guaranteed to elicit that from people.

Returning from his short sprint, face flushed not from embarrassment but from the sheer absurdity and fun of it all, Setsuna swiped another can of beer from the fridge, before returning to the crowd. "Enough for you, Mao?" he challenged, before composing himself slightly and searching the room for a victim. "Right, Zwei, you're up. Truth or Dare?"

Zwei was surprised that he had been chosen for a turn so quickly, in the past he had usually had to wait a couple rounds before anyone bothered to choose him for a truth or a dare. He was thrilled! His excitement was poorly contained when he shot back his answer with barely a heartbeat's time after the question was asked. "Truth!" He figured that he didn't have much to hide, obviously, so it would be amusing to see what questions Setsuna could possibly ask him.

"Excellent." Setsuna pondered his question, before settling on a suitable, yet interesting one. "Tell me, Zwei...If you were to create a team of 4, right now, using the people in this room just from appearances, who would you choose, and why? Emphasis on the why."
