I wrote this for tumblr's benefit, but since journal fandom is the one that appreciates the game...

The Character Roulette Meme was a tradition left behind in the fandom move to tumblr, and we are all missing out.

The rules of Character Roulette:

1. Make up a numbered list of 10 to 15 characters and keep it a secret for now.

2. Ask everyone to make up questions, in the form of:

"One forces Two and Seven to get married. Is it a happy marriage?"
"Five, Six and Twelve form a band! What do they call themselves? Are they any good?"
"Why *are* all the other numbers afraid of Seven?"

3. Stop taking questions, and then fill in the names from your list and answer accordingly.

4. Post results.

5. Hilarity ensues.

Hilarity and *really interesting* scenarios that neither you or the question asker would have thought up separately.

Why it is so much fun

In addition to their current identities, The Old Spice Man and Rose Lalonde are both researchers in the field of deception analysis. Are they friendly colleagues and co-authors, or do they hate each other's guts? )

A dating website attempts to find a romantic match for a spankbot. Out of all the other fourteen participants, who would be the most suitable? The least? )

Troy Barnes and Rose Lalonde get married! But not to each other! To whom? )

[personal profile] gogollescent

The Old Spice Man is a dragon and telepathically bonded to Amanda Waller. What's the era? Are they cruising through the Napoleonic Wars or running a con in the 21st century? Or are they actually on Pern? )

Benjamin Sisko and Hyacinthe Cohen encounter an unchaperoned child version of Cristina Yang. Do they sell it into slavery, keep it and raise it, or try to frame one another for its kidnapping? )

Kara Zor-El and John Egbert are married when the zombie apocalypse arrives, and John Egbert is infected with totally unrelated parasitic worms. TELL ME ABOUT IT. )

Cristina Yang is an undercover policeman trying to ingratiate themselves with the mob; Alice Morgan is a weary, jaded piece of arm candy for one of the mafia boss' lieutenants, and developing a late-life urge for revenge. Do they strike a deal, start a pale/black flip, or just have moments of frozen empathy in crowded nightclubs? )

IS Karkat Vantas SECRETLY EVIL? )

They were also unencumbered by notes on who gave me the questions. But, uh, Thanks! It looks like I had fun!

Alan Scott, Amanda Waller, and Cissie King-Jones are sharing an apartment, but one of them has to pretend he or she is gay to do it, because of Barbara Gordon, their nosy downstairs neighbor... )
