Event Log: Dreamwalker

Who: Everyone!
What: The Dreamwalker event
Where: In your comfy bed and your sleepy head.
When: May 16th-26th
Warnings: Good dreams, weird dreams, bad dreams, straight-up nightmares. Please remember to tag for warnings in the header if things are going to be bad!

Have you been having trouble getting a good night's sleep? Tossing and turning, unable to rest those tired eyes? Or maybe you don't sleep at all, and never have. Not to worry! For a little while, you'll have no trouble at all falling asleep - in fact, as night falls, you'll find yourself overwhelmed with exhaustion whether you want to sleep or not. Lay down and rest your weary head, friends. Everyone could use a little extra sleep.

But what will your dreams bring? Something happy, images of a perfect day? Something hopeful, something you've wanted for a long time? Maybe you'll dream of anger, of the face of your worst enemy. Or maybe - just maybe - you'll have a horrific nightmare, and wake screaming, covered in cold sweat.

Not before others have time to see it, though. As you sleep, as you dream, the other residents of Hadriel, friends and enemies and people you've only met once, might find their way into your dreams. Or you might find your way into theirs - and then have to deal with someone's else's nightmares, or hopes, or anger. For the next ten nights, you'll find yourself either a host or a visitor, and no matter how you try you won't be able to stay awake once night falls.

Sweet dreams, Hadriel. Don't let the asshole fear gods bite.

► This log covers May 16th-26th.

Jesus Christ.

[Chris told her that he'd seen someone killed right in front of him, during that horrible night in Canada, but it's one thing to imagine it and another thing entirely to see it. There's so much blood. Nick stares in horror, hand clapped over her mouth, frozen to the spot by the horrible tableau in front of them.

The all-too-familiar screech of the nearby wendigo sends a spike of ice up her spine, jolting her from her paralysis.]

Oh no. No, no, no, not again -

[She lurches forward, grabbing for Chris' shoulder.]

Chris! Chris, we gotta get outta here!

[What is she doing here? And worse yet, why is she talking, why is she moving, but he has to move too now to shove her behind him as the wendigo creeps from the darkness toward them.

It doesn't immediately attack, however, just moving slowly across the snow toward the two of them as if waiting for the perfect moment to leap on them.]

[Shit. How do you fight off a goddamn wendigo? Chris told her once but now, overcome by panic, she can't remember. She goes still except for whispering loudly at him in a frantic tone:]

What the fuck do we do?

Don't move.

[He whispers it back, but there's really no point to not just saying it; the creature can hear them just fine at such close range, and seems to be trying to decide which to go after first.

It doesn't seem too threatened by Chris' weapon--as it shouldn't be--and otherwise Chris and Nick are equally intimidating to the creature, which is not at all. Either will be simple enough to incapacitate and then it can go for the other, so it simply chooses the closest person and leaps at Nick with outstretched claws.]

[Nick tries her best to follow Chris' instructions, but she can't stay still when the wendigo jumps at her. She takes off running in the opposite direction, toward the snow-blanketed forest behind them.]

Chris! Chris, help!

[His heart stops when the wendigo leaps at her, but thankfully she somehow manages to dodge it and take off running; the wendigo shrieks in anger and leaps into the trees, following after Nick in a much faster way than it could've on open ground.

Chris curses, running after her as well, and despite not being particularly athletic he's surprisingly fast at running when he absolutely has to be. That combined with dream logic lets him catch up with Nick, but now that they've started running there's no other choice but to commit to getting far enough ahead of the creature that they can find somewhere to hide.]

J-Just keep running!

[If the wendigo gets too close he'll take a shot, but it would have to be literally on top of one of them for the blank to even scare it, let alone do any damage.

It looks like that might end up occurring, though, as they're quickly running out of mountainside; the edge of a cliff is now visible ahead of them, the drop seemingly endless.]

[Nick skitters to a stop just shy of the cliff's edge and glances back over her shoulder with a panicked expression. She was so focused on just getting away that she lost track of where the wendigo was in relation to her. Now, though, there's nowhere forward for her and Chris to go but back.]

Where is it? Did we lose it?

I-I don't know, it has to still be in the forest.

[Chris has stopped next to her, trying to figure out what to do, voice just above a whisper; if they've gotten far enough ahead of it they might have a chance, but only if they don't attract its attention again.

He grabs her by the arm--gently--and tugs her to follow him in sinking to kneel in the snow; it's easier to hold still sitting down, and they can hide in plain sight if they manage to remain still enough. It's not like they have much choices other than to try, with the cliff behind them and the wendigo lurking in the woods back the way they'd come.]

W-We've got to stay still.

[Nick follows his lead, kneeling on the cold ground, arms pulled in close to her chest to make herself look as small as possible. She whispers at him:]

What if we climb down? D'you think it would follow us?
