Toil and Trouble...

Witch's Magic Meme

Magic is a funny thing and when Witches use it in the Soul Eater Universe, it can have bad results. Sure, sometimes, it's an accident - point is, today is not your day. Your character has been unfortunate enough to end up affected by Witch's Magic and cursed in some way.

1. Animal - Four feet, two feet... no feet? Doesn't matter. Witch's Magic has turned you into a temporary animal companion... or troublemaker.

2. I Can't - Tell the truth? Tell a lie? Maybe you can't stop making rude gestures. No matter what, you can't stop.

3. With(out) Feeling - Jelly legs, frozen arms, disable wings, the magic makes you unaware of a body part and unable to use it.

4. Drama Queen - The littlest thing makes you incredibly happy, sad, angry, scared, etc... and that's all. There's no in-between. One emotion for the duration of the magic.

5. And I Said - Motormouth curse. Good luck trying to sleep. You and anyone living with/near you.

6. Show-Stopping Number - Sometimes, you just got a lot of music in you and you just want to share it with the world! Those cursed are 'blessed' with uncontrollable urges to sing and even dance... even songs and dances they don't even know.

How to Play:
  • Post your character with name and canon in subject line
  • Roll RNG for your curse
  • Tag other characters
  • ???
  • Profit~!

Thought we could probably use a meme.

The day had started out normal enough. Sephiroth had made his way over to the training field as it came to an end that day. Yet as he stood there waiting for his partner to return, the world around the ex-General shifted and where a six foot man stood was now a small silver rabbit. The rabbit blinked in surprise when the world around him seemed to have gotten a lot larger

Sephiroth glanced back over his shoulder, sighting the large feet in the area. He moved to glare, as much as he could given his current furry appearance, before he raised his hand up to rub at his temples. It paused, however, at the sight of a paw where his hand should have been. Standing on his hind legs, a look of shock passed over his rabbit features. What on Gaea----?

I couldn't resist /sobs

"Sephiroth?" Cloud blinked as he came to a stop near where his partner always waited for him, yet the physical and imposing figure of the man was decidedly absent. He tilted his head, not quite paying attention to a rabbit near his feet as he headed over to a tree to peer up the foliage.

"Why are you hiding?" Public ambushes weren't Sephiroth's style. He could feel his partner in their link, yet it was decidedly off. Where was that partner of his anyway? He shaded his eyes with a hand to look up into the foliage but saw nothing suspicious up there.

they are sobs of joy, aren't they?

[personal profile] pure_lineage 2013-07-06 01:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Cloud's voice drew his attention when the blonde called out to him. His ears flickered towards the sound before he was staring at Cloud's shins. His furry brows knitted when his foolish partner didn't even notice his presence. Inwardly huffing his annoyance, Sephiroth walked awkwardly over to where Cloud's boots were settled before he put a paw purposefully on the boot as he glared up unhappily towards his partner.

I admit nothing!

[personal profile] de_faulty_hero 2013-07-06 01:28 pm (UTC)(link)
He tilted his head when it seemed that Sephiroth wasn't in the tree, and he was about to walk away before he felt something on his thick boots. He looked down and spotted a silver rabbit looking up at him, giving some kind of aggressive look. It was the eyes that caught his attention, green and cat-like and he sighed as the link felt right as he looked at the furry creature.

"I didn't think you had that much control of your JENOVA cells," he quipped as he fell to a crouch and regarded the athletic creature. "Okay, you've had your fun, so you can change back now."

You don't need to admit anything, I know it all ;)

[personal profile] pure_lineage 2013-07-06 01:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Out of all of the creatures that he could turn himself into, a rabbit would be one of the lowest on the list. So when Cloud crouched down and pointed out having to turn himself back, Sephiroth did his best to give Cloud 'the Look' of being clearly unimpressed. He opened his mouth to speak, but nothing but a small spitting sound to show his displeasure.


[personal profile] de_faulty_hero 2013-07-06 01:43 pm (UTC)(link)
When it seemed Sephiroth couldn't control the change, he frowned before snorting in amusement at the sound. How had this happened to one of the most powerful Deathscythes in the city? He hummed before reaching out and scooping up his rabbit partner into his arms, cuddling the creature to his chest and fingers seeking those big hind feet to rub them.

"Well, you are awful cute like this, especially when you can't talk back," he said with a smirk. "Let's get you home so we can figure this out, alright? Or we could go to the park and let the kids play with you," he teased as he turned and began to walk with his partner.

[personal profile] pure_lineage 2013-07-06 02:05 pm (UTC)(link)
The amusement was hardly welcomed in Sephiroth's mind, and he watched with that same look on his face as Cloud reached out to scoop him up. He was irritated with his whole situation. Add to the fact that he didn't know how he'd come into such a situation either only made it all the worse in his mind, and the last thing he wanted to do was be presented to the Shibusen fools of this city in an attempt to try and reverse whatever had happened to him. Sephiroth would have preferred to stay as he was than be subjugated to such an insult.

Cloud's comment had Sephiroth lashing out as his small mouth opened and bit down on his Meister's hand as an obvious display to his displeasure at the teasing.

[personal profile] de_faulty_hero 2013-07-07 12:03 am (UTC)(link)
The big furry feet were quite endearing, especially with those big ears and the look of complete disapproval that Sephiroth pulled off so well. He rocked his partner in his arms, fingers stroking big feet until anger seemed to take over and he winced when he was bitten, jerking his hand away as the blood began to flow. Apparently rabbit's had sharp wedge-like teeth... and now he was bleeding.

"Hmpt, keep that up and you can hop your way home," he retorted and flipped Sephiroth from being cradled to simply being stuck under his arm. "Don't take out your aggression on me. I'm the one who will help you if I can."

[personal profile] pure_lineage 2013-07-07 12:12 am (UTC)(link)
Cloud seemed to be having far too much fun with the entire situation. Well that was until his teeth sunk into Cloud's flesh at the tickling. His hind legs had kicked out in protest during the 'attack', and when he was tucked under Cloud's arm instead, Sephiroth sounded a sharp breath through his nose as if that was answer enough.

His little nose twitched as he caught the scent all around him. Flicking his ears around at each sound, he hung within Cloud's hold before lowering his head. Cloud may have had a point, but that didn't mean that he was happy with the situation either.

[personal profile] de_faulty_hero 2013-07-07 12:18 am (UTC)(link)
When it seemed his new rabbit companion was not going to bite him again, he began to walk away from the training grounds. There was no point staying when everyone might ask him about the rabbit, and Sephiroth just might think about fighting and biting him again. He lifted his hand and sucked on the blood that was dripping from the wound.

He kept the rabbit safe under his arm as he headed back to the safety of the apartment. Once he was inside, he set Sephiroth on the ground and grunted as he headed off to the bathroom to wash his blood hand.

[personal profile] pure_lineage 2013-07-07 12:23 am (UTC)(link)
There was no feeling of guilt within, or so he liked to tell himself, as Cloud maintained his silence and began heading back to their apartment. He kept his head low and remained relatively still throughout the journey until they were back in the apartment and he seemed to be placed on the floor. His tail wiggled a little, and Sephiroth thought better about trying to walk purely on his hind legs as Cloud walked off.

He was certain that Jenova would find him far too interesting, and the last thing he wanted was having to deal with that damn feline's claws. That was why he grudgingly hopped along behind Cloud as the blonde made his way towards the bathroom. He followed along until he was at Cloud's feet before perching himself there. His ears turned themselves back to keep himself aware of a certain feline's presence even as he glanced up to peer at the bleeding hand.

[personal profile] de_faulty_hero 2013-07-07 12:30 am (UTC)(link)
Cloud didn't have to look back to know he was being followed, but he hadn't entirely forgiven his partner for the savage bite that still bled on his hand. He wasn't certain he had deserved it, but he said nothing about it because it clearly wasn't Sephiroth's fault his partner was currently a rabbit. Still, those teeth hurt.

He stood in the bathroom, washing his hand before he looked down at a weight on his boots again, eyeing the cute face and eyes peering up at him. "Smell blood? Yeah, that's mine, and it's been a long time since you blooded me," he said before shifting his head to eye Jenova who had come to investigate this new creature. Her eyes were huge.

Sighing, he abandoned wrapping his hand and bent to scoop Sephiroth up again, only to have Jenova come and sniff his boot intently. "We'll get this figured out. Don't worry. Can you communicate with your JENOVA cells at all?"

[personal profile] pure_lineage 2013-07-07 12:37 am (UTC)(link)
He could smell the taint of Cloud's blood on the air while his partner washed the wound. Even when those glowing eyes fixated on him, his own beady ones never wavered. Instead, when those words were said, Sephiroth's ears finally sunk down lower as if showing for the first time that he might have been sorry for what he'd done. He'd allowed for his anger to get the better of him, and Sephiroth knew well that he would have done quite worse had their situation been reversed. That didn't make him feel any better about his current 'condition' though, and when he was picked up, Sephiroth closed his eyes as his paw stretched out to rest against the blonde's shoulder while his furry little nose pressed against Cloud's cheek.

The question had him relaxing within the blonde's hold as he fixated on the cells. Whatever had happened to him seemed to be affecting his ability to communicate at all, and the small displeased look that crossed his features was enough to say that.

[personal profile] de_faulty_hero 2013-07-07 12:43 am (UTC)(link)
He noted the change in body language, but he wasn't all that familiar with rabbits to know entirely what it meant. He could guess though, so he didn't regret picking Sephiroth up to avoid a confrontation with Jenova on the floor. He set the rabbit to one shoulder and stroked a hand down the soft fur to soothe his most likely distressed partner. He shifted at the tickle of whiskers against his cheek before moving off to the bedroom.

He shut the door to keep Jenova out for now and set his partner on the bed, stroking big ears before he sat down and pulled off his boots and spaulder. He lay back on the mttres, watching his cute partner. "Well... hopefully this is just temporary. I wonder how it happened in the first place."

[personal profile] pure_lineage 2013-07-07 12:49 am (UTC)(link)
There were rare moments where he felt such things, but as he lay there against Cloud's shoulder, Sephiroth felt miserable. The only saving grace was the fact that his partner had been the one to find him, but he knew that he was completely useless in his current state. Perhaps that was the entire reason for this and the city would fall under attack? Not that he cared about the fate of the city, but with him taken out of the fight, it would mean that Cloud would be without a Weapon to fight with.

He watched as Jenova was closed in the bathroom, and soon felt the mattress placed beneath his feet as Cloud put him down. Leaning in to the stroke against his ears, Sephiroth didn't stay far from Cloud. Sephiroth awkwardly padded his way over the blankets to go and curl up against the crook of Cloud's elbow. Settling his hind down on the mattress, his front paws and head came to rest against the blonde's chest as he peered up at his partner before he shrugged his small shoulders as if to say that he didn't know.

[personal profile] de_faulty_hero 2013-07-07 01:10 am (UTC)(link)
He couldn't pick up Sephiroth's emotions as much he could before, but he could tell based on that expression that his partner was upset. He hummed softly as he lay on the bed and watched the rabbit crawl up and settle against his chest. He reached out and pet Sephiroth's head, stroking the soft ears and scratching the back of that soft neck.

He saw the equivalent of a shrug and sighed, wishing he had some answers and the ability to make Sephiroth feel better. "Don't worry. I'll protect you and still love you no matter what form you take."

[personal profile] pure_lineage 2013-07-07 01:13 am (UTC)(link)
Try as he might, the ex-General couldn't help but find the attention rather welcome, as much as it went against his very being. He'd never been much of one who found pleasure in such touches, but it seemed that his current form came with other 'limitations' besides being a rodent. He inwardly berated himself for leaning into the contact, and did so even more as his eyes slipped closed at the scratching at the back of his neck.

He knew Cloud well enough to know that the blonde wouldn't stop. At the words his cat-like eyes reopened to peer up at his partner. His small nose twitched from side to side before he was dipping his head to press his forehead against Cloud's chest.

[personal profile] de_faulty_hero 2013-07-07 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
Sephiroth was someone who accepted affection from him, but it wasn't quite like this. It appeared that the fur and ears were sensitive to touch and the now rabbit ex-General was pleased to have it. The corner of his lips quirked in response and he continued to pass his hand over the slope of Sephiroth's silver furry back.

The nose twitching was rather endearing, but he knew better than to poke at it as he might receive another bite. He issued a soft noise of humming to soothe the lagomorph resting against him.

[personal profile] pure_lineage 2013-07-07 01:58 am (UTC)(link)
He still wasn't happy with his situation, but that seemed almost far away as those slender fingers worked their way through his soft fur. Kicking one hind leg out, he moved to settle more on Cloud's chest as the soft humming was sounded in the area. Despite everything... this was... nice... he had to admit.

[personal profile] de_faulty_hero 2013-07-07 02:20 am (UTC)(link)
Cloud rested quietly petting the rabbit before he closed his eyes to simply let them both relax. He felt Sephiroth relaxing, though he was still very puzzled about the situation. How had it happened? When would it reverse? Would it reverse at all?

Then something happened, something tingling down his body in a way that he had never experienced before. He shifted and found the world a different place as he too was changed into a soft blonde lionhead rabbit and his nose worked to the strange smells that a human nose didn't pick up. He noted Sephiroth wasn't against him either, and he rolled to his side to find himself looking at paws and issued a rabbit cry and hopped ungracefully before peering around with blue eyes.

[personal profile] pure_lineage 2013-07-07 03:57 am (UTC)(link)
The quiet moment had Sephiroth relaxing against Cloud's chest as he got himself comfortable. He was just hoping that whatever was wrong wouldn't last for long, but such thoughts didn't last as he felt the large warm body shift and shrink beneath him.

Tilting his head to the side curiously, his ears perked forward as that cry was sounded before a horribly fluffier verson of himself popped up. Sephiroth pushed up as he felt the furry softy body beneath him, and he found himself peering into familiar blue depths.

"I suppose it wasn't just a localized problem," Sephiroth muttered as he peered at his partner.

[personal profile] de_faulty_hero 2013-07-07 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
Things definitely didn't feel as they should, but he didn't fight it either. He knew there was no point based on Sephiroth's misery, and he blinked as he stared at the green eyes that always found a way to see him. He flicked an ear, his nose working as he shifted strong hind legs and more dainty front paws before he felt the pain. Apparently shifting didn't do anything for his previous bite wound.

"You're a contagious jerk," he said before rolling up onto his paws and lifting the one that had been bitten. He tried moving more, getting his legs working and moving away from Sephiroth just to feel what it was like. This was... an adventure alright. "This isn't that bad. What were you really moping about?"

[personal profile] pure_lineage 2013-07-07 04:12 am (UTC)(link)
Sephiroth's attention shifted down to the reaction Cloud had to the paw when he tried to walk on it. He had forgotten the wound until that moment, and he found himself staring at the blonde quietly as he considered what had happened. With them both taken out like this, the city would be significantly weaker, but the city wasn't his priority, it never had been.

He didn't say anything to the slight. When Cloud moved off, Sephiroth got his own legs working beneath him as he moved to follow at a wider berth. Hearing Jenova crying out for them to let her out, he ignored it as he made his way across the mattress. "I can't say that I'm all that surprised that you're enjoying this, Strife."

[personal profile] de_faulty_hero 2013-07-07 04:17 am (UTC)(link)
Cloud didn't have to look to know Sephiroth was moving around. Large ears picked up noise of the shifting blankets under furry feet, and his nose as able to smell the other male easily. His senses had never been better, though it seemed humans relied entirely too much on sight. He didn't see as well, but where he lacked, he picked up with other senses.

He flickered his cotton-like tail and gave a big hop, thinking that being turned into a rabbit made him a natural. It didn't. He was uncoordinated and didn't have use of both forepaws as he landed awkwardly and simply fell over onto his side, bit hind feet kicking out in a silly fashion. "When else am I going to get an opportunity like this? Don't knock what you haven't been before. This could be like... covert ops right now. No one suspects the rabbits."

[personal profile] pure_lineage 2013-07-07 11:52 am (UTC)(link)
Sephiroth couldn't help but find himself amused by the fact that the cotton-like tail wiggled the way that it did. He was certain that he had refrained from such a display on his end, but from what he knew of his partner. Cloud was undoubtedly the type to do just that.

He calmly approached after Cloud had tumbled down on one side. Sephiroth stretched himself out so then his nose could nudge against Cloud's side. Trust Cloud to find the enjoyment out of being in such a situation. It was a thought that had him forcing back a shake of his head. "I shouldn't be surprised that you're finding this far too entertaining," he murmured before settling himself down on his four legs. "Yes because there's nothing odd about seeing an animal not in its native environment, hmm?"

[If someone were to take a walk around the park or visit Yesterday's Magic, they might notice a certain witchy woman who's allergic to felines doesn't seem to be around today.]
