The Lotus Eater Machine Meme
Your character falls asleep, or is knocked out, and finds themselves in a dreamworld which is their own personal paradise.
However, this is a trap - And now, their friends have to come and wake them up!
Your character can be the Dreamer or the Dream-diver, who's trying to wake them up. Being the Villain who entrapped them in the first place, or a fellow slumberer trapped in the Dream is fine too.
[Sample Dream Scenarios]
1. It's pretty much the same as their real life, except that it's just a little bit sparklier and nicer then normal.
2. It looks close to their real life on the surface, but the sparkle factor is much stronger in this one - They're basically whatever they wanted to be, deep down inside. Maybe they wanted to be the smartest, or most popular, or most beautiful, or most talented person in their class, town or family? Well, now they will be!
3. It's a wish fulfillment fantasy, plain and simple - They wanted to be a pop singer or a movie star? Well, now they are!
4. Pull out all the stops - Want to be a King or a Queen, or maybe a Magical Girl? It doesn't matter how impossible it is in their real life - In this dream scenario, those wishes will all come true!
5. They wanted their father, mother or any other person important to them to say they were proud of them? They wanted to be considered to be better then their brother, sister, other family member or fellow student, etc etc etc? Those wishes have been granted - Too bad it's all a dream...
6. Be it the death of important people or something else, they bad thing that hurt them badly never happened - or even better, was averted at the last moment, in this dream scenario.
7. Something Else
1. The Dreamer - Your character is the one trapped in the Dream World the Lotus Eater Machine is generating.
2. The Dream-diver - Your character is the one who is trying to save the person who's trapped in their dreams.
3. The Villain - Your character the one who trapped whoever it was in the Dream-world in the first place.
4. The Fellow Slumberer - Your character just happened to be trapped in the same Dream as the Dreamer is.
5. Something Else
1. Post as your character. (Please write down the name and canon/fandom of the character in the subject line, and also if they're canon, AU, crossover or OC, etc.)
2. Please choose your character's role, and set the first scene. If they're the Dreamer, please describe the Dream they're trapped in.
3. The mun who's tagging choses their own roles for their own characters.
4. Tag, thread and have fun!
