have you tried closing your eyes?

the i n s o m n i a meme

It happens to everyone - sometimes, you have nights where you just can't fall asleep, no matter what you do. It could be for a number of reasons, or no reason at all. And this is what's happened now: you've been laying in bed for what feels like hours, just tossing and turning, and nothing seems to help. So what's left to do? Get out of bed and go wake someone else up, of course. If you're not getting any sleep, then why should they?

o p t i o n s

01 • FEAR. Maybe you're hearing strange, indeterminable noises; maybe there's a severe storm happening outside; maybe you watched a scary movie before bed? Whatever the reason, you're terrified and it's keeping you awake. You just want to wake someone else up so they can protect you from the monster in your closet.
02 • HUNGER. Your stomach is growling and it just won't stop. Or perhaps your throat is so dry you could cough up a tumbleweed? Well, you've gone to the kitchen to remedy this and hey, that was a pan that just dropped on the floor. It was loud enough to wake the dead! Oops.
03 • PAIN. Your body is completely worn out, be it from exercise, battle, sickness, or what have you. Either way you're in enough pain to keep you from sleeping, so maybe someone else has a home remedy or something, or can at least help you take your mind off of it.
04 • SOLITUDE. For some reason, your bed just feels so empty at the moment. You're feeling terribly lonely and really just want someone to keep you company for a while. Maybe it'd be easier to fall asleep if you're with them...
05 • DISCOMFORT. Your room is an oven. Either that or a freezer. Or maybe this bed is just really uncomfortable? Who knows why you can't get to sleep, it feels like it could be anything. Why even bother trying? Maybe someone else can preoccupy you until you feel tired enough to ignore your discomfort.
06 • PENSIVE. Something's on your mind, and no matter how hard you try to focus elsewhere, it's just not going to work. Your body may be tired, but your mind is incredibly busy and it's virtually impossible to get to sleep. Surely, talking it out with someone else will help?
07 • SADNESS. Something terrible has happened that day, perhaps; or you could just be severely depressed. Either way you're trying your hardest not to cry yourself to sleep, and it's not working at all. Better find a way to get it out of your system somehow; you need a shoulder to cry on.
08 • ANGER. You are just... fuming. Who knows why - that annoying dog is barking again, or maybe the people next door are getting busy and keeping you awake. Whatever the reason for your ire is, you'd better put an end to it so you can get some damn rest already! Go wake up a friend so you can complain to them.
09 • RESTLESS. You're far too energetic to sleep right now. Maybe you're just trying to do so out of necessity - you have to be up early tomorrow! But you just don't think you'll be able to fall asleep for a while now, so why waste the time trying to sleep when you could be doing something else? Namely bothering someone else - you're totally jealous because they're getting more sleep than you.
10 • WILDCARD. Choose one of the options above, or make up your own scenario.

[There are any number of reasons Remus occasionally has a hard time sleeping, and he's gotten pretty good at slipping out of bed without waking Dora up too over the years, so it's not an unusual thing to find him making tea or reading at odd hours of the night. It's not anything melancholy this time, just some lingering ache that his potions do nothing for, but it's enough to keep him up.

He looks up from his book in mild surprise when Teddy comes into the living room.]

Karen could hear the wall clock.

Which made her think, honestly, who still has wall clocks?

Of course, the wall clock had been there from the previous owner, and so she'd left it up, preferring to have something on the wall rather than nothing. A creak in the building, sirens outside, yelling.

She groaned and flipped over her phone, checking the time.

2:42am

Shit. She didn't have work tomorrow, so what did it matter if she couldn't sleep? With a sigh of irritation, Karen pushed up out of bed, walking over to the bedroom door and swinging it open. It wasn't long until she set her kettle on the stove, boiling water for cup of tea or something. She had instant coffee, even if it was fucking horrible.

Staring at her phone, she typed in a text and sent it.

Still awake?

[Kaze moves like a ghost through the halls, his movements silent and imperceptible as he drifts through the shadows. He's only doing a basic patrol, but that's no reason to let his guard down. There's no telling who else might be lurking in the dark-

-such as a certain princess. How odd... what is Lady Sakura doing awake at this hour? He steps behind her, clearing his throat slightly to announce his presence.]
