[OPEN] oh, the king

Who: Sion & You!
Where: The Meshwork.
When: The duration of Chapter 4!
Summary: Dream catch all! From casting spells and engaging in shenanigans to escape match-meetings, to talking to your "other self", Sion's dreams are sporadic???
Restrictions/Warnings: Violence, spoopy imagery, possible (literal) self-sacrifice...!!

You are running for the love of it.
You sink and you cannot breathe, air catching in the throat and refusing to reach the lungs.
You are happy.
You tread upon a pathway comprised entirely of dango.

( all dreams are OTA and written in second person, Sion's POV. tags will be returned in regular third person! feel free to PM or contact me here if you'd like something specific. o9 )

[ A man appears in the clearing, a cloak of beige shrouding his golden hair and dark clothes, skin white as parchment and illuminated from within with a soft glow. ]

Do you love the trees as well?

[ Julius sits himself next to Sion, leaning against a trunk, his cloak pulled over his head so that only his face is visible. ]

Trees are pure. They mean no harm, they commit no crimes... one the most innocent on this world.

[ A slightly different sentiment, but it means agreement. ]

this is so gay

Ah, but their hearts are pure. That is what matters... what drives their deeds.

[ He doesn't move when Sion touches him, expression firm but not devoid of emotion, merely thoughtful. ]

More humans should be like them.
tousei: (why are you here these are all memes)

ok thats true

[ Menoris, not Earth. He does not know what the word is in this dream, but as long as it's not the accursed place he comes from - ]

Yes, of course. I should not have doubted that.

[ A good place, but by that virtue he cannot stay here lest his curse spreads. ]

[ Much of this passes entirely over Julius' head, he being a stranger and knowing little of this kingdom and its ways. But what Sion speaks of needs no deep knowledge to understand - a simple principle. ]

Of course. It is unfortunate that they do not understand.

[ A smile comes difficult to him, but in response is a lightening of his eyes. ]

You deserve to rest.
tousei: (a true shoujo man)

this was so gay that i had to stop going to bed to reply to it

[personal profile] tousei 2017-03-25 04:46 pm (UTC)(link)
No one will expect me anywhere. My time is yours.

[ After all, to most people, he does not exist. He is a shadow that hides in the forest, a cloaked man with skin of white trees, eyes of golden leaves. ]

I may not be a fast runner, but I will certainly try my best.

[ Julius is quiet, his eyes half-lidded for a moment as he thinks, his words careful when he does speak. ]

You have accepted me, despite my curse. That alone is enough.

[ A curse that will one day tear him apart, so he must be far, far away when it happens. But they still have time. ]

I will confine myself to this forest. You know where to find me.
tousei: (i need to fill these with more jokes)

i'm laughing

[personal profile] tousei 2017-03-27 07:26 am (UTC)(link)
You're very poetic.

[ Said slightly amused while he sits unmoving as if a statue, the motion coming easily to he who would become a tree in time. ]

There is little else I can do save for stay here and wait. I only wish I could have helped more.

[ There are many things that he finds fault with in himself, but it's not the right occasion to voice it at all, no. ]

Then I will be here.

[ In both senses of the word. The 'with you' is left unsaid but implied. ]

Take a rest. I can wake you later.

[ It has to be a construct of her own thoughts and imagination, what she perceived Sion to be. Behind the grief and occasional verbal lashing, she would give him she had a soft spot for the Director. To her, it's her own dream, too, an image she can see of Sion. The lightest footsteps grace the scene as Alice draws her gaze to him and the boy he holds. Feelings are difficult for her to apprehend, but not the feelings of compassion and sympathy, the ones that push her.

And it's stronger because of the fact Sion is so close to her age. He's done so much for his age and seemingly in such a small amount of time. She couldn't help but feel jealous of him, time to time.

He's crying.

Alice had found herself so tired and sore from the grief that she felt like she couldn't cry anymore, not like him. He's so open, even Alice finds herself envying he's even shedding tears to begin with. Not her, she's losing control, she's losing her mind again. ]

Oh, Sion...

[ She still can't touch him or offer him physical comfort, just her words. Her voice, it's softer than she's ever displayed with him. She settles in front of him, her hands folding neatly in her lap. ]

Sion, look at me.
digophelia: (I found my suffering - the life)

[personal profile] digophelia 2017-04-03 12:49 am (UTC)(link)
[ Alice can understand the sentiment very well, somewhere deep down. There's a nagging feeling that she's forgetting something. Or someone. For once, Alice doesn't scorn him or push him to move along. She sits patiently there in front of him, with her hands still neatly in her lap. The feeling of despondency is much like her own feelings. ]

You've done nothing wrong, Sion. [ How funny their roles are reversed at this moment and Alice like a fretting mother. ] You're always so hard on yourself, placing the need of others before your own. He wouldn't want this, Sion.

[ Her? Meeting a similar fate? ]

I promise you, nothing will happen to me.
digophelia: (Don't turn your back on me again)

[personal profile] digophelia 2017-04-09 04:26 am (UTC)(link)
Why would I leave you?

[ Alice leans in, so unsure of herself of how else to offer comfort and support for him. A man so insistent on fussing over her at every turn, someone who seemed to show more care and support than anyone else higher up for that matter. Jack, of course, like a fussy father. Sion was her peer and it made it different. It gave her more reassurance than she cared to admit. So she nudged herself closer to him, leaning somewhat to get a better look at Sion's face.

She had every intent to show him that she would not budge, stubborn as she was. ]

I have been too cruel to you.

[ She starts to speak, still believing it to be an odd dream or even just a distorted reality. ]

Quite honestly, it upsets me how you fret over me and my well-being. It makes me feel so small at times and I would worry that you saw me so ill that I was unable to care for myself. However-

[ It pains even her to see her cry. ]

I could never leave you, no matter what.
somnusrex: (grump)

Seriously Sion what is your subconscious? ...wait don't answer that

"For this to go back to something even close to normal. That's all I want."

Because streets and palaces made of dango - and yes, Ryner had stepped in the shouyu. More than once, in fact! - were just too much. This whole place was weird and he was too tired of all this idiocy to care much for it or for the idiot currently talking to him like these wishes were somehow a valid thing.

But that peerless beauty - and really, this whole place made of dango, with this loud and annoying moron included - made his heart hurt for reasons he couldn't understand. It was almost familiar, as if he'd heard someone tell him about this place before...

But it was gone before it could really become a thought, so he just grumbled when the remaining syrup on his boot happened to catch on the floor made of dango and cause him to trip a little. But even if he fell, it would be into dango. That only increased his grumpiness, though.

"You could wish to be less annoying."

"I'd be fine with it if you weren't you."

But it wasn't true, of course. He was just grumbly because of the syrup still covering his boots. The dango was supporting him, but the syrup, as was its entire purpose, adhered to it happily and he fount himself needing to reach down and pull his foot up every few steps.

And Sion was happy, seemingly about all of it. Why wouldn't he be? This place was perfect for him. But it was nice to see the guy walking along with a bounce in his step for once in his life.

"You'd hate to awaken to what normalcy is, huh? Yeah, that seems about right."

Still grumpy, but with an underlying affection. Because yeah, this place really was perfect for Sion, and Ryner didn't dislike it half as much as he was acting like he did. Even with the syrup.

"I don't know if I'd go that far, but at least it's nice out. Can we eat this stuff?"
somnusrex: (sure why not)

[personal profile] somnusrex 2017-03-23 06:01 am (UTC)(link)
And he sputtered. The idea was so ridiculous - as if the entirety of this place wasn't! - that he wound up grumbling down at his poor, syrup-covered boots atop the dango surface of the path.

"Nevermind, I lost my appetite."

No, not really. He was actually pretty hungry, but Sion was going to be weird at him so he figured he might as well just deal with it until he could find something better to eat than the ground he was walking on. The ramifications of doing so upon this place and the happiness of life and all else mattered not one whit to Ryner. But if countless people were treading this path, that'd be pretty gross to put in his mouth anyway.

"I'd like to take a nap. Wading through this stuff is tiring and troublesome. I don't have a wish, though. I didn't come here with the intention of making one. That seems rude, anyway. Just show up to a place and demand favors? From a Dango God? Besides, what wish can she grant that isn't just more dango?"

Always one for philosophical questions, Ryner smirked.

"Is that your heart's desire? To carry me down the path like a damsel in distress? I'm pretty tired, if you want to so badly I'll let you."
somnusrex: (grump)

[personal profile] somnusrex 2017-03-26 06:47 am (UTC)(link)
"What the - !"

Yep, he was flailing, hands scrabbling for any sort of purchase on Sion's robes to try to get his center of gravity back. Not that it mattered, because Sion had barely paused, and kicking the guy to make him fall down would be more trouble for him than it would for Sion. As usually happened.

"Yeah? I didn't force you to do this, so don't bitch about how tired you are when you made the choice to carry me, you asshole."

And yes, he did indeed squawk at the shift, once again hoping the idiot currently holding him over his shoulder wouldn't somehow see fit to drop him unceremoniously to prove whatever point he thought he was making.

"You're the guy who came up to me and started the conversation, so if you're weary of my bemoaning I'd say that's your own damn fault!"

But he did stop vocalizing his thoughts on this Dango Avatar, since Sion seemed incredibly invested in the whole thing and who was he to destroy a fantasy? He also didn't really care, for the most part. But since he was stuck up here whether he liked it or not, he just sighed. Grumpily.

"I guess, but we can't find that out until we talk to her, right?"

May as well let the guy have his beliefs. Whatever they were.
somnusrex: (serious)

And then you went and made this feelsy

[personal profile] somnusrex 2017-04-02 06:29 am (UTC)(link)
At any other time, he'd probably have at least grumbled about the stickiness of his boots and the flooring. But he found himself unable to care, when he heard the tone of Sion's voice.

Sure, seeing the guy having fun was a good thing, although it could be annoying. But this was decidedly different, and Ryner understood as soon as he turned toward the Dango Avatar.

The sense of familiarity was overwhelming, and for a fleeting second, something like hope bloomed in his chest. That they could stay like this, in this ridiculous place, being idiots if they wanted to be. It felt very far away, but he thought he might be able to see it up close someday, if he worked hard enough.

And so, with nary a complaint, he promptly sat on his ass on the floor. It made the boot situation a lot easier, at least.

"Yeah, me too."

His voice wasn't quite as reverent as that of his dear friend's, but it was certainly close. Ryner himself felt as if he'd somehow been smacked over the head with the knowledge of who she was, who Sion was, and he was afraid that if he breathed just a bit too hard, it would all disappear.
