Once Upon a Dream

(I Met You) Once Upon a Dream

Dreams are complicated and amazing, aren't they? They can be fascinating, fantastical, boring, scary, comforting. You can meet people that are gone from your life, there, or even - sometimes - dream of people who you don't know, yet.

So this is just it. Meeting in a dream.

Warning: some of the prompts should be better avoided by the younger crowd, for sexual, violent, or body horror reasons.

How to Play
- Comment with your character and preferences.
- Reply to others.
- Have fun.
- Make sure you leave people a way out. It may be a dream, but don't tag into a stranger's open prompt with something that might be explicitly disturbing or way too intimate without checking in with them, first.
Prompts

There are two major categories.
I. In a dream.
II. After you wake up.


They have different prompts, but you're free to mix and match as desired - and the prompts are merely suggestions, after all. Go wild!

I. In a dream.

A. Kind of dream.
1. Mundane
2. Fluffy
3. Hot
4. Sad
5. Memory, or close enough
6. Nightmare
7. Fantastical
8. Free for your imagination.
9. Special! It's a winter wonderland!

B. Kind of meeting.
1. You know them in life. You meet them normally - friends, allies, acquaintances, coworkers...
2. They were once part of your life, but they're not, any longer. Left for good, you fought, they're no longer living...
3. Strangers.
4. Enemy! Defend yourself! Or maybe reach a truce.
5. Free for your imagination.

C. Kind of dream experience.
1. You are as you are in the waking dream - same gender, abilities, etc.
2. You're enhanced - you can do things you don't, when awake, like flight or supernatural strength or knowing a different language, or something else that you normally lack.
3. You're depowered - whether you have special abilities and they don't work in the dream, or you're lacking something else that you usually have - sight, mobility, speech...
4. You're physically changed - different gender, different race...
5. You're a different age - younger or older.
6. Free for your imagination.

II. After you wake up.
A. Kind of dream.
1. It was a lovely dream. You have a great feeling that stays with you after it.
2. It was a horrible dream. Nightmare, or it just went on and on...
3. It was a confusing dream. You're not sure how to feel about it.
4. You don't really remember much about it. But you think there was something...
5. Free for your imagination.

B. Kind of an encounter.
1. Expected - bedfellow, roommate, friend, colleague, and you get to tell them about the dream.
2. New - you met that person in the dream! Or they're just a stranger you feel like you should share the dream with.
3. Impossible - how is that person even there?
4. Enemy - why them? Why now?
5. Free for your imagination.

C. Anything else you want!
Did you wake up with a skill or ability you didn't have? A new fear? A secret you never knew before?

Since it's Marin, it's gotta be In a dream, fantastical, and strangers...Marlon is a regular human but let's depower him anyway. He needs to gain the abilities to fight, read, ride his motorcycle, etc]

[If you're game for yet another one with these two, I'm just excited for the directions we could take a dream. Maybe something semi-surreal, where one thing flows into another, bits and pieces of each one's subconscious or psyche come up in some form...AND they wake up in bed together, but which one of them dreamed it?

I don't even know where to start. There are so many places to go here!]

[ Powers are tricky things and Wanda still doesn't have the best control of hers, neither of them do. She's probably further behind than he is. Sometimes her mind just reaches out without really consulting her first and sleep is when that happens the most.

Tonight she dreams and they are old dreams, painful dreams of buildings torn to rubble and bombs bearing the name STARK painted in what looks like blood. The metal tubes rain down from above and as powerful as these new abilities are, they are falling too fast for her to catch and redirect them all.

Buildings explode and people scream. She's keeps trying over and over again to turn the weapons aside with the insidious thought that even these new abilities just aren't enough.

No surprise at all that reaches out for the mind she knows best, for the other half of herself in the midst of a nightmare that they both already share. ]

[ perhaps not unsurprisingly, Bilbo dreams of home.

not just during the daytime either, although it would be a lie to say that his mind does not often wander to thoughts of home. it would also be a lie to say that Bilbo's sleep and his dreams are always as easy, particularly since joining this quest. tonight, though, his sleeping mind is kind - veritably peaceful, even.

the edges of the dream are blurred, slightly, whether because some of the details are slipping Bilbo's mind - unlikely, since he knows his cosy hobbit-hole better than the back of his own hand, and indeed some of the smaller objects are startlingly sharp in their detail - or whether because Bag End is so far away now, so removed, that even his dreams carry that wistful longing for it. the sunlight comes in through the window, bright and yellow and creating dustmotes that dance like fireflies as they catch the light.

Bilbo sits in a chair in front of a table set next to this window, eyes closed in obvious enjoyment as the dream sunshine washes over him. ]

It was a dream in which she was waking, or rather, a dream in which she began by feeling as if she had just left fitful slumber, rising from her usual place, eyes blinking blearily, waiting for colors and shapes to coalesce into something tangible.

But she had no sight.

Hands patted frantically around her, touching the familiar grooves of the ground, knowing with all of her senses that she was in the Seireitei (she thought she heard the distant growls of Kenpachi, but that hardly helped her pin down her location). Panic began to set in, her heart galloping into a dizzying rush of fear and anger--who was responsible?!

Should she call for help?

--Probably, but it wasn't her way.

Instead, she carefully got to her feet, touching the sekkiseki walls to keep her balance. Voices on the wind teased her ears but remained unintelligible, searching out the spiritual pressures of those nearby to identify an ally, or even better, an enemy.

What she found was a human.

So weak, comparatively, that she had almost missed him as she approached.

"You," she growled, tilting her head forward to knock her bangs over her eyes and hopefully conceal her utter blindness, "You don't belong here."

That might make him the perfect or worst person to seek aid in. Only time would tell.
