Character Reactions Thread

Postby Kris@WLP » Wed Mar 21, 2012 1:37 pm

So, after seeing this comic:

http://syacartoonist.com/reactions

I thought it might be a good idea to run some PitW characters through situations or impulses provided by you, the readers, and see what their reactions are.

In the example- "Fire!":

Peter would beat feet.

Sarah in human form would call 911; in wolf form she'd watch the flames at a cautious distance.

Jean would look for marshmallows.

Butch would ignore it, provided it poses no danger to herself.

Peter would end up with an empty wallet and a wagon full of boxes of cookies- and only the flavors nobody else will buy.

Sarah would buy one box, which would likely get scarfed in seconds the next time she went wolf.

Jean would buy a box, then steal some of Peter's.

Butch would shout at the Girl Scout until the younger girl ran away screaming, then sulk for the rest of the day imagining herself in a Scout uniform.

Peter and Jean: "MEAT."

Sarah: chicken and spinach with Alfredo sauce and lots of Parmesan cheese, when in human form; in were form, practically anything will do so long as it's foodlike and cooked.

Butch hasn't had the kind of life where choice of pizza toppings is a feature. It'd take a moment for her to comprehend the question. Then she'd ask, "What have you got?" and try to find a way of trying as many combinations as possible.

Ganthan wrote:"I'm bored, want to rent a movie tonight?


"Movie Nights" for Peter and Jean ended the night Jean caught Peter crying while watching "Field of Dreams." Peter loves sports movies; Jean prefers slasher flicks, though she also likes porno as a means of teasing Peter.

Sarah wouldn't rent a movie. Still at her parents' house is a WALL of anime and nerd vid, a lot of which is still in the shrinkwrap. One of the significant annoyances of the werewolf thing is that it's cutting into her anime time, and she feels like she's missing EVERYTHING...

Butch's answer would be a simple, "No," if she feels polite. The only visual entertainment she got on a regular basis was while she knelt beside her father awaiting his orders while he watched TV- mostly reruns of old shows. As such she's come to LOATHE anything involving the idiot box.

Ganthan wrote:"Whoa, nice Halloween costume!"


Peter would try to grin, despite his mortification that Jean and/or Sarah have dressed him up in something he personally feels is either ridiculous or demeaning.

Jean is wearing something that falls into Minimum Legal Coverage territory- Vampirella, for a more conservative example.

Sarah, given her preferences, would have three different costumes or more depending on how many Halloween events she gets to attend. Regardless of what the costume is, any compliment will trigger at least five minutes of babbling about how she made it, where she got the fabric, and any silly mishaps in designing the patterns from mostly scratch.

Butch wouldn't be wearing a costume as such, but an original clothing design. The unexpected compliment would throw her; she'd mutter something like, "Thanks," and ease away slowly.

Oh nos! Due to a dimensional breach, over-indulgence of psilocybin mushrooms, or a horrible crossover fanfic they find themselves trapped in the magical of Equestria! Assume lycanthorpy isn't communicable to ponies.

Oooooooh boy. In either form Sarah is going to fangirl like no tomorrow. She'll end up being the monster defeated through the Power of Friendship. Once calmed down she's going to spend quality time discussing fashion with Rarity.

Jean's pretty cool with all the ponies, but especially Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash. (Rainbow Dash might not be cool with -her-, but...)

Peter is going to be weirded out and shy- more out of place than ever before in his life, and that says a good bit. Which likely means that Pinkie and Jean will drag him into all sorts of shenanigans.

Butch would cause trouble, targeting Sarah either directly or indirectly. If not causing trouble, she'd be even more withdrawn than Peter, to the point of lurking. Away from Sarah, she'd probably find places to hide unseen and watch the ponies go about their insane little lives, being sad and jealous of the happiness, friendship and family.

Why would they have to call upon the Power (Elements?) of Friendship when they have Fluttershy? She calmed Cerberus by giving him a belly scratch. She would have Sarah eating out of her hoof.

...

Now I feel compelled to commission an image to that effect.

First, I didn't mention the Elements of Harmony. What I meant was, she'd be the outside threat which is defeated by the lesson of the episode:

"Dear Princess Celestia: today I learned a valuable lesson about friendship- that someone who acts really, REALLY scary might just be trying to make friends. Even if they did turn into a huge monstrous carnivore with glowy eyes and a mouth full of sharp teeth."

Sarah prefers cooked for the taste, regardless. Pre-lycanthropy she'd had cause to try steak tartare a couple times, and she can do without that. Besides, it's not like there's a shortage of cooked food that a wall of blonde fur can't, er, beg.

As for weres getting food poisoning... barely possible, with the more toxic forms. Botulism produces about the same effect as a stomach flu in were form. In human form, the were will be very sick for a while, but will survive.

As for Sarah's eating habits, I'd also suggest she's eaten Raw Oysters on the Half Shell, which she liked. But more of a mind that the true appeal of oysters is the look on the other persons face as you let the slimy, salty stuff slide down your throat. She's familiar with those from her families frequent vacations to New England.

Her fave potato chip flavor is Sea Salt & Vinegar.

Jean likes any Carny food out there, but only at an actual Carnival. Eating a corndog at a 7/11 just isn't the same.

That would depend on whether there are any cute guys around when she eats said corndog.

Generic pick up line from a human male directed at Peter, Jean, Sarah or Butch.

Generic pick up line from a human female directed at Peter, Jean, Sarah or Butch.

Edit: thanks for the correction Happygun.

Butch's reaction would be one of not 'getting' metaphors.

Here's one, then...

Those pickup lines done in a way to reveal that they've *figured out* the secret, when they're not supposed to be in on it, and are interested regardless. (i.e., referring to the secret obliquely, but not using the proper "secret code" lines.)

The pickup line would go sailing over Sarah's head. Not only is she still learning, but she's not the best in the world at interpreting any kind of hint or mild suggestion.

Peter and Jean would freeze for a moment and then seek the very first opportunity to bail, then report in to their parents (or, in Peter's case, Jean's parents instead). It might take Peter a little bit longer to do so than Jean, since thought isn't one of his strong suits.

Butch would try to put the fear of God into the person. If that didn't work, she would seriously consider taking matters, to put it delicately, into her own hands. Contacting the pack leadership would be, at best, an afterthought.

Okay, reactions for all people in terms of both scenarios.

Scenario 1: Jean takes a pregnancy test and it's positive.

All peoples reactions.

Scenario 2: Sarah takes a pregnancy test and it's positive.

Something irrelevant.

There's a contest for an Arm Wrestling. 10 bucks to enter, 500 bucks prize for winning. No lycanthrope form and the guy in question is really muscular and 'scary'.

At this point in the story?

Jean is first shocked, then deeply suspicious, because she knows- despite her wishes in Book 2- there hasn't been an opportunity for her to get knocked up for months and months, plus she's on herbal birth control. (Yes, there are herbs which weres can eat to prevent implantation of a fertilized egg in the uterus- hence Jean's "Plan B" crack.) Also, having a baby does NOT fit in her plans any time soon.

EDIT: Oh- then she'd remember the one-nighter with Noah. And be truly, horribly, sick to her stomach, and NOT from morning sickness.

Sarah is furious and goes wolf immediately, the only question being who to growl at first, Peter or Jean.

Peter is confused out of his wits.

Butch would laugh her ass off.

Tsuikai wrote:Scenario 2: Sarah takes a pregnancy test and it's positive.


Sarah: twelve feet of worrying werewolf.

Peter: passed out cold on the floor.

Jean: smugly congratulates the apparent parents-to-be, smug because IT'S NOT HER.

Butch: silently chewing nails. Galvanized.

Tsuikai wrote:There's a contest for an Arm Wrestling. 10 bucks to enter, 500 bucks prize for winning. No lycanthrope form and the guy in question is really muscular and 'scary'.


Peter: "Maybe I could take him and maybe not, but if I beat him he'll make a scene. Let it go."

Sarah: "Why would I be interested in that?"

Jean: "I'd love to teach him a lesson, but Dad would have one of his Disappointed Moments if I did."

Butch: "Here's your $10, asswipe. What I want to know is, how many places do you want your arm broken?"

Okay, in order of how you're playing it, Peter, Sarah, Jean, Butch, do a 4 size scenario of going on a 'date', outing or night in with the other three. The person in question being the one in charge of arranging the date/outing/night in. For example:

Peter arranging a date/outing/night in with:
Jean
Sarah
Butch

Then Jean arranging a date/outing/night in with:
Peter
Sarah
Butch

And so on.

Going to pass on this one, because a lot of the combinations, including pretty much every one with Butch, fall quite firmly into "wouldn't happen" territory.
