CHARACTER NAME: Furiosa
CHARACTER SERIES: Mad Max: Fury Road

[OOC]
This is the permissions list for OOC (out of character), activity.
Answer the following questions with "yes" or "no", as well as additional information if desired.

Backtagging: Yes! It's a rare day that I'm able to boomerang, so backtagging is my bread and butter.
Threadhopping: Maybe. If it's in a meme designed for it or a group thread, I'm game.
Fourthwalling: No.
Offensive subjects (elaborate): The canon presumes and implies a hell of a lot of offensive and horrific behavior, from rape to slavery to brainwashing to gore to cannibalism. Dehumanization is par for the freaking course. So that's going to come up with this character. Please do not hesitate to tell me OOC if I hit a trigger for you in my tags, but be aware there's a limit to what I can do as far as avoiding painful topics while keeping the character in-character.
On the flip side, expect Furiosa to react ICly in a VERY NEGATIVE WAY to characters who display offensive and horrific behavior, especially as related to sexual abuse, sadism, and slavery.

[IC]
This is the permissions list for IC (in-character), activity.
Answer the following questions with "yes" or "no", as well as additional information if desired. With IC permissions, it's a good idea to elaborate on what other players can expect from your character if they choose to do any of the following:

Hugging this character: Sure. Strangers, particularly strange men, may not come away unscathed, but overall she's not as prickly as you'd think.
Kissing this character: See above. Chaste kisses are probably welcome.
Flirting with this character:Sure, but--potentially mixed results. I don't mind OOCly, but no guarantees as to how she'll respond.
Fighting with this character: Yes. Please feel free to communicate OOC. She is skilled, tenacious, and ruthless, although she's far from unbeatable. If a fight between characters is going on, please play fair and let's give them both a chance to live up to their canon depictions.
Injuring this character (include limits and severity): See above, but yes. Prefer no maiming; she's already lost one arm.
Killing this character: No.
Using telepathy/mind reading abilities on this character: Probably fine, but please ask me OOC what your character may be picking up. There's a lot going on under the surface with her.

Warnings: See above. Her canon backstory includes rape/sexual slavery, as well as a whole lotta death. While this is definitely not something she's going to bring up in conversation, I tend to do a lot of introspective narration and there's a limit to how much I can tone this down and still be in-character, so if you're not comfortable with it, it may be better to just avoid tagging her.

Do I ship it?: The short answer is: probably, and I like F/M and F/F pretty much equally.

I really really really love the world of MM:FR in all its bleak, parched, insane glory. I'm playing Furiosa because I am enamored of the character, not because I want to match her with any other character in particular. That having been said, I'm a soppy romantic at heart and I like it when damaged characters find some kind of meaning in one another.

I see plenty of basis for tenderness between her and Max, what with their weird sub-vocal understanding and mutual self-sacrifice, but I'm also happy to view that as platonic. I can see her falling for one of the Wives in an awkward, damaged, angry way, reaching out to one of the Vuvalini, or even, in a moment of intense post-battle camaraderie, taking some pleasure from the company of the War Boys. It sort of depends on buildup and how it's written.

I'm also open to cross-canon shipping, but that's all about buildup and CR.

The one caveat I have here is don't count on any positive CR with Immortan Joe, and I have no desire to play out non-con or dub-con with him, though it's heavily implied in canon and I include it in my headcanon for Furiosa's backstory.

Ugh, do I HAVE to ship it? What about Gen?: Bring me ALL the Gen! I love action and world-building especially. Castmates, cross-canon, or AU, I will give it a shot.

What about smut?: Can do, but I do like CR with my smut. If you have something in mind, let me know OOC and we'll discuss. In general, Furiosa is not going to let down her guard enough to be submissive, so expect her to be dominant or egalitarian. No non-con, and dub-con only if it's some weird external force acting upon both characters (i.e. sex pollen). More detailed kink list HERE.

And finally, if you like shipping but prefer to fade to black, I am delighted to go that route, too.

It's a rare overcast day at the Green Towers, when Furiosa brings Jim from the Nexus with her to visit. Normally the sky is a ruthless, clear teal, except when storms rage through. Today it's a soft, leaden grey that makes the sand look a deeper gold than usual. The Wasteland is not without beauty, even now.

Chrome sky, shiny day! The war boys are shouting the adage to one another as she leads the way through the tunnel that takes her to and from the Nexus. It opens out into a garage, which has a wide bay door through which the dubious glory of the desert shows. Furiosa is quick to beckon him to look, although they end up passing a couple groups of blackthumbs working on engines to do so. The men and women look up as they pass, visibly curious but too polite to question. Furiosa doesn't bring many visitors, but she does tend to wander with inexplicable companions now and then. Her feral Fool, for one. Jim looks much more put-together, and alarmingly clean, and there will no doubt be rumors, but her people trust her judgment. Especially the ones she works alongside most closely.

"All right," she says, by way of introduction. "If you look around the crag there, you can see where the groundlings are working on shelters, and the rows of grasses we've put in. When Immortan Joe ran the place, they were called the Wretched...but we're trying to change that."

They didn't really set a time of day to meet, Furiosa realizes after she parts ways with Iphigenia. Maybe it doesn't matter. Time has limited meaning in the Nexus anyway, as far as she can tell. Sometimes she's sure she's been there for hours and comes home to find the sun has barely moved. When she arrives today, she takes a detour to make photocopies of several pieces of sheet music, then goes to settle under the tree to wait for her new friend.

What she's managed to dig up is impressive in its sheer variety. The Song of Seikilos is there, but so are two or three Italian art songs from the 19th century, early 20th century blues, several showtunes, and Madonna's 'Like a Prayer'. Furiosa had started out by picking a half dozen she liked, and then the Sisters all pitched in excitedly, so she has an extensive roster of favorites in her lap. Iphigenia may end up having to sing for the women of the Citadel too, at some point. Furiosa is wary of bringing them to the Nexus, but if they make up their minds to come, she can't--and won't--hold them back.

This is a catch-all PSL post for smut, heavy violence, and kink-meme prompts. Please check with me via PM before putting a starter here! (If we're already doing a shippy or smutty thread elsewhere, no need to move it here.)

Furiosa has been hesitant to invite anyone from the Nexus to her home, and it's not so much because she's afraid of trusting the more pleasant people she's met there. A few of them she would be happy to see more of, really. What she worries about is what happens if they get stuck in the Wasteland, because she knows the kind of harshness she takes for granted is more than some people from wealthier, healthier worlds could bear. That, and there seems to be a tremendous technology disparity between her home and many others.

Dia, she thinks, is tough enough to handle the Wasteland, but that doesn't mean she'd enjoy it. Still, they've spoken to one another enough, and she's grown reluctantly fond, so after a handful of warnings about wild storms and toxic earth, she gives in and asks her to come sometime. If she wants. You know, whenever she has a spare moment...

The gate from the Nexus to the Citadel opens up into the deepest garage, one set below the surface of the sand. It's cooler down here, and every now and again Furiosa will find someone sleeping off sunsickness or just plain shirking work in the corners. She herself tends to do everything but shirk work, so Dia is more than likely to catch her up to her shoulders in an engine when she arrives.

Even after Immortan Joe is dead and the Citadel won, they all know Gastown will be a problem. The lack of leadership from the People Eater doesn't make much difference; he was never a war leader so much as a businessman. The ranks of Gastown boys, flamers and polecats, are decimated, but guzzoline draws all sorts of desperates. Where trained soldiers are lacking, mercenaries are easily obtainable. All it would take is one charismatic leader to fill the power vacuum, and they would have the might of a very large city coming at them.

Of course, Furiosa and the Sisters have faced terrible odds already and come out better than they had any right to. She dares to hope even if the worst happened, they could survive and win. But if they can head off trouble at the pass, they should make the attempt. As the only one of them that's ever actually been to Gastown before, Furiosa is the only sensible choice for diplomatic effort. She's not much of a diplomat when it comes down to it. She can talk down a frightened feral, evidently, but diplomacy requires more patience than that.

Still, after several days of meetings in the city--some of them more like physical sparring matches than discussions--she thinks things are going well, and feels like she can breathe again. She slips away from the half-dozen war boys she's brought along as an entourage, and goes walking in the quieter alleys, the hovels on the edge of the marl pits. Half of them are being swallowed by sinkholes, and the rest are foul, but she won't be attacked here. The population is too sparse this far out.
