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.

[There is nothing more boring than watching two girls fight over a boy. Nick stands in the corner rolling her eyes about it right up until Mike pulls the gun on Emily. And that is just. Fucked. Up. She doesn't particularly like Emily, but there are some things you just don't do, and pushing a gun in someone's face is one of them.

The gun skitters across the floor, and Nick jumps backward, away from it, like it will poison her if it touches even the sole of her shoe.]

Dude, what the fuck?

[Both Mike and Emily look up when Nick speaks up, but it's Mike who speaks first.]

'She's dangerous. She got bitten by one of those fucking things. She's going to turn into a monster and kill us all!'

[Great. Just what this entire fucking scenario needs. That fucking asshole, Nick, with more totally inaccurate incentive to hate Emily.]

I swear to god if you point that thing at me, I will claw your fucking face off.
bekommen: (i can't get no satisfaction.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-05-23 01:18 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, what did she get bitten by, a zombie? Werewolf? What?

[No way either of those is a real thing. Can't be. What has her life turned into, some kind of fucked up horror movie? She stares, incredulous, at Mike, only shifting her attention when Emily speaks to her.]

Does it fucking look like I'm even touching that thing? Christ.

[She rolls her eyes.]
unfollowing: (fear face)

'A wendigo.'

[He goes for the gun as soon as Nick says she isn't going to grab it. Emily just barely manages to shove him back.]

Their bites aren't infectious, you fucking moron!

'Are you sure?'


'You're lying. You're gonna kill us all!'

[This time, he pushes her when he lunges for the gun, hard enough that Emily falls on her hip. When she looks up, she's staring right at that gun again, and fear overpowers the anger in her veins.]

Mike, please!
bekommen: (we are standing on the edge.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-05-24 02:37 am (UTC)(link)
[Wait - Nick knows the answer to this - the way you turn into a wendigo isn't by being bitten.]

Hey! Asshole.

[She almost can't believe she's sticking up for Emily, but this guy is dead wrong. Nick walks right up to him and gives him a hard shove.]

She isn't fucking lying, OK? The only way you turn into a wendigo is by eating other people. And let's be real, does she look like she eats anything?
unfollowing: (the blood is symbolic i guess)

[Mike glares at Nick once he regains his balance, pointing the gun at her.] 'How do you know that? Who the hell are you, anyway? You have no idea what we've been through thanks to those fucks! I'm not letting anyone else get killed.'

She's not one either, idiot! She may be a piece of shit, but that's not grounds to fucking murder her! [Which is the only reason Emily is stepping in, and why she's even angrier when Mike points the gun at her again. No good deed goes unpunised, goddamn!

Jessica starts laughing again, coming up behind Mike, peering at Emily over his shoulder.]
"What a stupid bitch. I can't believe someone's standing up for you. She must not know you're a cold-blooded skank."

Which is it, Jess? Am I a whore or a frigid bitch?

'Neither.' [Mike narrows his eyes, refining his aim.] 'You're a monster, or you're dead. Your choice.'
bekommen: (and now the old ways don't seem true.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-05-26 05:32 am (UTC)(link)
I know exactly what you've been through. Chris told me, and - I've been through it too, OK? Jesus.

[Nick is less concerned about having the gun pointed at her, sensing distantly - or remembering? - that she's been shot before, and it didn't kill her.

This blonde girl - Jess? - is pulling every last shred of Nick's patience to pieces. She manages to bite back the stinging barb she wants to say, though, because what Mike says is far sharper: Monster.]

You don't know the first thing about what makes someone a monster, asshole. You people are supposed to be her friends? You're the worst fucking friends I've ever seen.
unfollowing: (keywords are hard)

'Yeah, right.'

[Emily barely hears Mike's dismissive, half-assed response because she's too busy being floored by the fact that this racist bitch actually gets it. How fucked up it is that she's being held at gunpoint by her ex-boyfriend, and that Jess is all but cheering him on. It makes her remember that this is a dream, and that she doesn't need to be afraid of getting shot, or of whatever this Jessica might say to her.

Giving a nasty grin, Emily stands taller and holds out her arms.]

Then shoot me, if you really believe I'm a monster. You won't, though, will you, you piece of shit? Don't you want to play hero? Come on, do it and tell everyone I made you do it. Blame me, like everybody does for everything!

[Mike doesn't budge, just keeps staring at her. Behind him, Jessica laughs.

Faster than Nick can blink, Mike turns and points the gun at her. The dream seems to tell her that Mike is pulling the trigger slowly, slowly--

The dream ends with the sound of the gun going off.

Emily's eyes fly wide open, and she lies still, breathing slow and shaky as she wakes fully from what she saw.]
