The Road

The Road

Maybe you’ve always been traveling this road. Maybe you just started. But, either way, now you have a companion. They say it’s not about the destination, it’s the journey. Now you’re going to have to find out.

1. Post-apocalyptic. There’s not much left of the world out there. But there’s still this road, and at the end of it, they say, there’s a haven.
2. Epic fantasy. It’s a long and winding road, through forests and plains, and all manner of treacherous fairies and giant spiders along the way. Supposedly, at the end of it there’s a castle, a dragon, and a treasure.
3. Yellow brick road! A journey through a world weird and wonderful, and at the end, if you’re lucky, is a way back home.
4. Road trip! Route 66, cheap motels, diners, small-town America and the open highway.
5. The Eternal Commute. Welcome to hell. Or New Jersey. Either way, really. The two of you are stuck in this car, in traffic, and you’re getting nowhere. Eventually, one day, you’re going to get to your destination.
6. Wilderness road. Maybe you’re lost, or stranded, or this is all you’ve ever known. All you know is there’s only one road in all this wilderness, and if you’re ever going to get back to civilisation, you’re going to have to follow it.
7. Shangri-La. You’ve heard a rumour about this road. It goes somewhere. Somewhere special. El Dorado. Atlantis. Camelot. But if you ever want to get there, you’re going to have to follow the road. Don’t stray.

Of course fairies, giant spiders, and dragons don't exist right? (We don't talk about the Shimadas' dragons, okay?) But in dreams anything is possible, and this one is full of elements out of a storybook. It's hard to say if this dream is Jack's or Angela's, but both star as the main characters. Perhaps they're both creating this, and a person's dream state can be shared. Whatever the case, it starts on an idyllic path in the woods, and a Swiss princess set on reclaiming her deceased parents' castle from the dragon who killed them. With her is a gruff, mysterious man who has agreed to help her in this task, but she hardly knows anything about him, beyond the fact he can fight.

"Are you an adventurer, or a soldier perhaps?" she asks, clutching her magical healing staff a little bit tighter.

( awesome! I was imagining a more bizarre kind of scenario - consider blair witch meets junji ito's stories of obsession with following after something that will probably get you in a really bad situation in the end. here's a little starter, tried to go with the "supernatural/compelling" kind of location but lmk if you'd like me to switch it around! )

For her it was just like that constantly plaguing nightmare: the dense, humid forest marred only by a beaten dirt track dented from countless footsteps before her own. An unknown destination, however beckoning if only by a strange compulsion, a desire to either flee or get there depending on the night and today - this morrow of excessive dew, of lingering mist and an eerie absence of the sounds of animals, it was a bit of both.

"How long have you been searching for this?" Adora's voice was tragically monotone despite the effort placed in expressing her curiosity. Deep down she did want to know - what manner of place was this, so compelling yet difficult to find and even more difficult to find an end to? She'd come across this young man not long before, their fates seemingly intertwined by this trip. She'd been quite (foolishly) honest: it was a compulsion for her, a compulsion to keep moving and to not stop. To not look back lest something consume her existence and make it null. Foolish indeed, for in the end she'd probably sound crazier than she intended. But with their steps falling more or less in tune and no sudden disappearances, she'd felt the need to finally break the silence.

"Or did you just happen across this path? Did it call for you?"
