Everyone is John RTD
« on: April 20, 2019, 01:55:07 pm »

John lives a simple life. He works as a baggage-handler in a major airport. He goes to work, comes home, and watches TV over a microwave dinner. Every morning when he wakes up, he takes his medicine.

But this morning John forgot, and he's already halfway to work. "Oh well, surely missing one day can't hurt", he thinks as he sips his coffee and munches on a bagel. He arrives at the airport, parks his car, and walks to the employee entrance.

And then the voices return.

Cozy up to the boss as much as possible, see if we can get in their good graces for future promotions.

Let's not cosy up too much. We don't want to be seen as a suck up. We need to show some initiative and gusto!

Let's get to work like normal, but not before jamming the door leading to the bathroom.

Turn 1:
[No Willpower spent, so random action selection...1d3: 1, Nix!]
Cozy up to the boss as much as possible, see if we can get in their good graces for future promotions.

His face gone pale, sweat breaking out on his brow, John crouches behind an SUV. "Oh man oh man oh man, not again!" he moans, as the voices in his head start talking to him. One rises above the others, a soothing, familiar voice. John begins to relax somewhat. It's Nix. Nix has always had his back, Nix explains, before the doctors came along and made life so boring...
Nix suggests that John should cozy up to Gary, his boss, try to get a promotion...

"Um.. okay Nix, I guess... I could use more money!" John gets up. His colour returning to normal. Okay, so, the voices are back, but..well... they're being reasonable this time. And the doctors did say that he needed to think about whether something was reasonable before doing it. This can't hurt, surely.

John heads inside, and walks up to his boss in the small cafeteria/locker room. Gary is holding a polystyrene cup to the greasy coffee-maker, which is slowly discharging some kind of dark liquid.
"John, you're late. Again."
"Oh hi Gary! Um, you look nice today. What time is it?"
Gary starts poking a plastic knife into the inner workings of the machine without looking up at John. A thick black gout spurts into the cup. "Time for you to get a watch, bud. You're 8 minutes late. Soooo... I'm docking you an hour." Gary looks up finally, with a smirk underneath his stubble. "Unless you'd like to apologize?"

1

You know what, John thinks, NO. No no no. No way Nix. John thought that what Nix said was reasonable. But now he realizes that he only wants to stop Gary from looking at him like that.

John shoves Gary, hard. He lands on the table, soy-creamers popping explosively under his ample rump, and bangs his head against the wall. The coffee-maker tips over and spills hot, soppy grounds onto Gary's slacks. "Oof, what the-- OW OW THE FUCK!" he shrieks.

John quickly leaves the room. Outside, he shakes his head. What came over him? He should have listened to Nix...

Probably time to leave before your former boss calls the cops.

It's unanimous!
Billy Bob:
Probably time to leave before your former boss calls the cops.

John is standing in the hall outside the employee lounge/cafeteria/locker-room. He just shoved his boss into the coffee table. It felt pretty good, but it wasn't what the voices wanted...
Gary probably has some bad burns: John can hear his whimpers of pain over the surprised chatter of his co-workers inside.

Billy Bob, one of the newer voices in his head, pipes up. He says that John should get out of there. If the cops catch him, and the doctors hear about this...

5

...then John will get locked up in a mental asylum! No more job at the airport, no more pizza and moose tracks Thursdays(!), no more bingeing his favourite shows all weekend, no more freedom. "Yeah, you're right, I have to run away from this! There's no other way!" he says, to the empty hall. He sprints for the exit to the employee parking lot, and pauses... Hm... they might have called security, and they could be waiting for me in the parking lot just outside the door! Oh man, I don't wanna get tazed.

John turns towards the door to the terminals instead. They won't expect that! He thinks, feeling exceptionally clever. He swipes his badge and pushes through into the north wing of the airport. Before him a crowd of travellers are wheeling past in swift-moving lines. (Busy today. Good!) John considers his next move as he eyes the frozen yogurt shop across from him, the escalators leading to the restaurants and bookstores upstairs, and the elevator down to ground transportation services.


[By the way, if you want to change your goal, feel free to do so! Drop me another PM. HotFire90 accomplished theirs already, but it was a little too general, so I didn't count it for earning Willpower. And remember, a goal can be simple too. "Shout loudly in public", "steal a magazine", etc. You just get less WP for simple goals, is all.

Edit: and if you really don't want a goal, that's okay. You can always add one if you get inspired.]

Head to the transportation area. Let's get as far away as possible before police inevitably come.
