Just Saved Your Life Meme

Just Saved Your Life Meme



You're with someone you've known all your life, or perhaps they're a total stranger to you. Or maybe you know them, but don't necessarily like them. Either way, something has happened and you are the only thing that stands between them living or dying. Now it's up to you to decide: are you going to risk it all to save them, or leave it to fate?


RULES:

-Post a top level with your character's name/series/and preferences if desired in the title!
-Tag around! Feel free to use some of the prompts listed or come up with your own! Start from right after the initial saving, or thread it out! It's up to you!
-Scenarios can be tweaked to be as severe as desired; for example, character A might be stuck in a blizzard with character B and instead of one of them getting frostbite they're both forced to share warmth to keep from becoming ice blocks. ...or you know, whatever. I'm not the boss of you.
-Have fun!

PROMPTS

1) Accident: It happens so suddenly that neither of you could have seen it coming. You're walking on the sidewalk and a car turns a corner too sharply. You're somewhere high and you've lost your footing. The bridge you were trying to pass over collapsed, trying to bring one of you with it. Or perhaps even- in the heat of the moment- one of you caused this. Whatever the case, you've only got seconds to react.

2) Drowning: It can happen quickly to even the most experienced swimmers. When the current has you, it's no small feat to escape. You won't be able to make it out of this on your own. And even once you're out of the water, you're not necessarily out of the woods yet.

3) Freezing/Overheating: You're trapped in extreme conditions. Maybe you're stuck in a blizzard, or you've gotten lost in a desert wasteland with no civilization in sight. You're in danger out here, but at least you're not alone.

4) Illness: You've come down with something that may or may not be leaving you in an unsure situation. That fever is awfully high...maybe someone can look after you, just in case.

5) Injured: Something has already occurred, and the chance for preemptive saving has passed. But maybe you can still get help if you're brought to a doctor quickly enough...or maybe you're going to need some emergency first aid immediately on site. Hopefully you know somebody who can keep you together.

6) Wildcard: Come up with your own scenario!

[It was bound to happen eventually, right? Ruby moves fast, and the faster you move the less you're going to be able to account for sudden obstacles. Which would have been fine if those obstacles were usual sudden obstacles - debris, maybe, or a tree branch. Aura and the air buildup in front of her could deal with that kinda thing.

A one-in-a-million claw swipe while Ruby was going near top speed? Less doable.

She took the Grimm down, sure, so the coast is clear, but... man, Blake, that is some blood there. Coming out of Ruby's side. While Yang and Weiss are somewhere else because the team had to split up don't question the setup okay?

What do?]

[She did her absolute best to try and keep calm at Ruby's state. Even in a world where Aura exists she was not unused to seeing wounds like this, but seeing it on Ruby was something she'd never hoped to have happen.

She took off her jacket and bundled it up on itself, supporting her teammate so she could keep the cloth pressed against her side. She would call in the others but she had to make sure Ruby was okay first.

For a given value of "okay".]


...Ruby?

[It's a second before Ruby responds - she's breathing, but clearly struggling to keep the breaths above "small and sharp." She's mostly focused on just how much everything hurts right now, but then Blake is there and... Ruby manages to struggle enough to look at her. Gotta put on her brave leader face, right?]

Hey, Bla- ngh!

[OW BRAVE LEADER FACE FALTERS CHEST WOUND IS A BAD TIME]
onemorechapter: (Of unsound mind)

[personal profile] onemorechapter 2015-07-01 06:58 am (UTC)(link)
Easy, Ruby. It'll be fine. [Said with more conviction than she felt.]

Does anything else hurt?
al2o3cr: (Bright lights and... lollipops?)

[personal profile] al2o3cr 2015-07-01 07:03 am (UTC)(link)
[She trusts you, Blake.]

I think I - ngh - hurt my ankle when I fell? But tha's not... a hole.

[She weakly gestures towards the wound.]
onemorechapter: (Lost and alone)

[personal profile] onemorechapter 2015-07-01 07:18 am (UTC)(link)
Y-yeah. I noticed the hole. [Currently has her jacket pressed against it to try and staunch the bleeding.]

Do you- have a first aid kit on you? [Oh please let her have one, she's been all about SAFETY FIRST lately, and it would certainly help her get her back in better piece.]
al2o3cr: (Save our city)

[personal profile] al2o3cr 2015-07-01 07:22 am (UTC)(link)
I didn't really wanna know how essays feel, but... here we are. [Ha... ha... that was an attempt at a joke, at least.]

Yeah, it's - rgh - on my belt. In back.

[personal profile] onemorechapter 2015-07-01 07:31 am (UTC)(link)


[There was a flicker of a smile, before she glanced down at the general indicated area. So that would mean-

No, Ruby's life is what's most important right now. She kept her hand pressing the cloth and carefully moved her other, to reach around and pull out the first aid kit.]
al2o3cr: (Defend what it yours)

[personal profile] al2o3cr 2015-07-01 07:38 am (UTC)(link)
[Ruby is struggling very hard to keep smiling, even a little. She knew a thing or two about momentum - the harder you hit something, the greater the recoil when it bounces back. She just had to make sure to bounce, that was all.

Wiggling a little to accommodate Blake grabbing the first aid kit hurt, but she could deal with it. Even if the motion caused tears to well up.]

onemorechapter: (Huh...)

[personal profile] onemorechapter 2015-07-01 07:53 am (UTC)(link)
[She watched Ruby worriedly, then had to look at what she was doing so she grabbed the right things. Removing her jacket, she used both hands to open a few bandage pad packages, hoping Ruby was enough out of it to not notice the way she was shaking.

A breath to try and calm herself, and she started bandaging up her leader.]
al2o3cr: (I had a dream - a dream about you)

[personal profile] al2o3cr 2015-07-01 08:01 am (UTC)(link)
[Ruby winces and grits her teeth. Somehow the bandaging hurts even more than moving, and she's properly crying now, but she keeps the smile going.

Not even for her, for Blake. She knows Blake well enough to tell this isn't going well for her, and... she doesn't want Blake to worry. But there is an issue here.]


Should... I pull my shirt up? For the bandages.
onemorechapter: (Can't keep my head up...)

[personal profile] onemorechapter 2015-07-01 08:16 am (UTC)(link)
[She nodded.] Y-yeah, just... lemme clean it up a little.

[She's going to do what she can, but it's obvious she's out of her element and more than worried for Ruby. She doesn't even meet her eyes, determinedly looking down at what she's doing.

When the clothing is pulled away from the wound, she started putting the bandages on it, trying to ignore how much actually seeing the damage twisted her heart.]
al2o3cr: (Lives become incredible)

[personal profile] al2o3cr 2015-07-01 08:27 am (UTC)(link)
[Seeing the damage for herself hits Ruby pretty hard, the smile vanishes momentarily as bile rises in her throat from the spike of pain, but but she recovers, swallows, and... doesn't frown. Tears are streaking down her face, but she can't start sobbing. For Blake. Because Blake...

... that's not important right now.]
onemorechapter: (Default)

[personal profile] onemorechapter 2015-07-01 08:33 am (UTC)(link)


[She dipped in and out of closeness with Ruby as she wrapped gauze around her midsection to keep the bandages in place, still not looking at her.

At least, not until the very end, lifting her head to meet Ruby's eyes, and for a moment she wished she hadn't. The tears, and the pain in them, and somehow she understood that the pain expressed wasn't for the injured, and that just squeezed her heart again.

Then she rocked back to her heels, as if to stand.]


I'm going to call for help, get- get you back to Beacon.
al2o3cr: (This core is critical)

[personal profile] al2o3cr 2015-07-01 08:39 am (UTC)(link)
[That's the logical thing to do, but... Ruby doesn't want Blake to go. Not right now. Not even because she thinks it's a bad idea, just... she's going to be a little selfish. She moves a hand towards Blake's shoulder, but it ends up resting on her knee.]

d-Don't...
onemorechapter: (Default)

[personal profile] onemorechapter 2015-07-01 08:52 am (UTC)(link)


Don't? [The simple request brought her up short and she stared at Ruby in surprise, before slowly moving back into her earlier position.]

But- We need to get you back. We need to get you looked at.
al2o3cr: (Save our city)

[personal profile] al2o3cr 2015-07-01 09:02 am (UTC)(link)
I don't want to be... I don't want you to...

[Ruby winces, swallowing bile again.]

I need... you?

[This is messing with her ability to talk, but... Ruby grabs Blake's hand with her own and pushes her mouth into a smile. It feels like her jaw is full of lead weights in all the wrong places.]
Edited 2015-07-01 09:08 (UTC)
onemorechapter: (Default)

[personal profile] onemorechapter 2015-07-01 09:12 am (UTC)(link)


You need... [She looked at their hands, then dropped her head. After a few moments, she sighed out a good bit of emotion.]

I need you, Ruby. I don't know how you did it, but you got through to... so many people. Even the ones who.. never thought they'd change.

[She pulled her hand out of Ruby's, but only so she could take it with both of hers, closing her fingers and cupping her own hands around the loose fist.]


I'm not going anywhere. I promise. I can make the call from right here, alright?
al2o3cr: (Save our city)

[personal profile] al2o3cr 2015-07-01 09:19 am (UTC)(link)
[Ruby nods. Her throat is raw, the entire inside of her mouth tastes awful, and her whole torso is shot up and down with pain. But Blake is here. And she...

She's gonna get Ruby home.]
onemorechapter: (So that's how it is)

[personal profile] onemorechapter 2015-07-01 09:26 am (UTC)(link)
[Once she nods, Blake moves one hand back and digs out her phone, thankful there was enough signal here to get the message to their teammates, and to Beacon.

Now it was a waiting game, but she would stay here with Ruby, just like she promised.]
al2o3cr: (my velocity starts to make you sweat)

[personal profile] al2o3cr 2015-07-01 09:31 am (UTC)(link)
[Ruby sniffs back her tears. She wants to fall asleep, it feels safe, but... she shouldn't. So she just sort of... watches Blake. There aren't a lot of words left in her, if any, but... she wishes there were. That she could say something to make Blake feel better. Anything.]
onemorechapter: (Default)

[personal profile] onemorechapter 2015-07-01 09:43 am (UTC)(link)


[She watched Ruby herself for several long moments, taking in her whole face. Her eyes ticked and then glanced away when something occurred to her, and she lifted her head and looked off, staring into the distance.

Then one hand moved to take the end of the "sleeve" on her other arm, pulling it down after an initial, difficult tug, until it almost covered her fingers. Not quite meeting Ruby's gaze, she leaned forward some and, curling her fingers inward to stretch the fabric, wiped it across one half of Ruby's face, and then the other. One long, firm but gentle scrub to clean away the tears and any gunk from battle.]
al2o3cr: (You'll be swell! You'll be great!)

[personal profile] al2o3cr 2015-07-01 09:50 am (UTC)(link)
[Ruby smiles. No more tears. Not now.

And she doesn't cry again. Not on the flight back to Beacon with Yang and Weiss worrying over her, not when they stitch and sear the wound together, not when they have to fix her foot in place in a cast.

And when she's in a bed in the hospital ward, looking out the window onto Beacon below, signatures coating the cast on her foot, she smiles. And sees Blake entering reflected in the glass.]
onemorechapter: (Quiet smile)

[personal profile] onemorechapter 2015-07-01 09:53 am (UTC)(link)
[She let the door gently shut behind her, looking at Ruby with a worried expression on her face. But when she sees her smiling, Blake smiles too. It's not a big one, but arguably more special for its smallness, for who it's from.]

How're you feeling?
al2o3cr: (Then just don't let go)

[personal profile] al2o3cr 2015-07-01 09:58 am (UTC)(link)
[Ruby turns towards Blake, still smiling.]

I've been better... but I've been a lot worse, too.
