 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?


i n s t r u c t i o n s

• Post with your character (note the name and fandom in the subject).
• Other people reply to you by generating a number from 1 to 10.
• Have fun!


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.

[Liam is looking very irritable tonight, which may explain why he's walking outside in the falling snow. Dare you approach him?]
retraced: (not sure what I'm looking at)

[personal profile] retraced 2012-01-07 05:39 pm (UTC)(link)
[Ugh, more snow. This makes patrolling so much harder. But it's also too dark to really see anything properly, so he doesn't notice the angry expression on the other's face at first. Approaching!]

Liam?
easilyflustered: (thoughtful)

[personal profile] easilyflustered 2012-01-08 05:12 pm (UTC)(link)
[Upon realizing who it is, Liam tries to ease his expression from irritation to a weak smile. There's no point in taking it out on Gilbert.]

Good evening, Gilbert.

[It is far past evening, of course.]
retraced: (it's driving me mad)

[personal profile] retraced 2012-01-08 05:31 pm (UTC)(link)
[Once he gets a little closer, he barely manages to make out that weak grin on the man's face. He might not be horribly well acquainted with Liam outside of necessary work, but he knows a forced smile when he sees one.]

Is everything all right?
easilyflustered: (sigh)

[personal profile] easilyflustered 2012-01-08 08:34 pm (UTC)(link)
[Liam's face twitches just slightly at having been seen through and he sighs softly.]

The Mansion messing with my dreams again, is all.
retraced: (and do no wrong)

[personal profile] retraced 2012-01-08 09:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Another shared one?

[He asks, cautiously. It wasn't with him, as far as he knows; not unless it's a dream that he's forgotten.]
easilyflustered: (frustrated)

[personal profile] easilyflustered 2012-01-08 09:47 pm (UTC)(link)
[He nods.]

Another with someone killing me. And that person is likely in a panic over it, given his general mental state.

[Liam will seek him out eventually, after he stops being angry with the Will for putting them both in that situation.]
retraced: (and my head splits)

[personal profile] retraced 2012-01-09 04:53 am (UTC)(link)
...Can I ask who it was?

[As he sees most of the same people that Liam knows on a daily basis.]
easilyflustered: (troubled)

[personal profile] easilyflustered 2012-01-09 05:48 am (UTC)(link)
[He hesitates before replying.]

The version of me who is a photographer.

Threats had been made against a child unless he did, in the dream.
retraced: (smoking is bad for you)

[personal profile] retraced 2012-01-09 08:50 pm (UTC)(link)
[Even though it was just a dream, he still finds himself wincing. Here, dreams were almost impossible to detach from wakefulness.]

Did you see who the child was?
easilyflustered: (disheartened)

[personal profile] easilyflustered 2012-01-10 04:14 pm (UTC)(link)
I didn't see the danger. But he told me the female Liam had been taken, and the perpetrators were threatening her son.

[He shivers just slightly.]

... So I let him.
retraced: (and my head splits)

[personal profile] retraced 2012-01-11 04:11 pm (UTC)(link)
[He stays silent for a long moment, giving Liam some time to calm down after reliving the dream.]

...It was only a dream. It won't really happen.
easilyflustered: (troubled)

[personal profile] easilyflustered 2012-01-12 01:41 am (UTC)(link)
I do hope you plan on knocking on wood.

[Liam normally isn't superstitious, but with the Will...

Why do you keep tempting her, Gilbert? So much linefacing right now.]


It's... irritating that she tortured him like that. Forcing him to do such a thing.

He had to shoot me.
retraced: (when my ears ring)

[personal profile] retraced 2012-01-12 01:46 am (UTC)(link)
[He's pretty sure that a situation like this is too much for the Will.

Really, he should know better by now.]


Well, he's...always seemed too meek to be a very good shot?
easilyflustered: (disappointed)

[personal profile] easilyflustered 2012-01-12 01:51 am (UTC)(link)
[Liam points to his own forehead, where the shot hit him.]

You're forgetting that I'm perfectly capable of making good shots. And I've had to do so before.

[He doesn't go into details about those circumstances.]
retraced: (soft and absolute)

[personal profile] retraced 2012-01-12 03:34 am (UTC)(link)
You're a lot different than him. You were trained by Pandora.

[To file and stuff, but c'mon he must have taken lessons or something at some point.]
easilyflustered: (troubled)

[personal profile] easilyflustered 2012-01-12 03:59 am (UTC)(link)
We can't automatically assume that he's not had training.

[Everyone gets lessons at Pandora.]

Either way, it only took one shot.
retraced: (smoking is bad for you)

[personal profile] retraced 2012-01-12 06:03 am (UTC)(link)
[It's true - he can't really argue with that.]

Well...the one that we shared never happened.
easilyflustered: (determined)

[personal profile] easilyflustered 2012-01-14 03:38 am (UTC)(link)
Not outside of the dream, anyway.

[It's said flatly. Because realistically it had impacted them both, regardless of actually happening or not.]
retraced: (we will die with our arms unbound)

[personal profile] retraced 2012-01-14 04:49 am (UTC)(link)
[It had impacted him, but he's hardly about to let that be known.]

It shouldn't have even happened in the dream. I would never...no matter what.
easilyflustered: (disappointed)

[personal profile] easilyflustered 2012-01-14 04:53 am (UTC)(link)
[Liam grimaces.]

One thing I've learned about this place, is the Will can make us do anything.

[It's soft.]
retraced: (and my head splits)

[personal profile] retraced 2012-01-14 03:13 pm (UTC)(link)
[That's right...he's learned now from several people what happened that night when Liam was killed and Break was wounded. Shelly hadn't meant to do what she did to the both of them, but it had been because of the Will.

Carefully, he reaches out and pats the man's back, squeezing his shoulder briefly before dropping his arm back down.]


Sorry. I spoke without thinking.
easilyflustered: (disheartened)

[personal profile] easilyflustered 2012-01-14 08:29 pm (UTC)(link)
[Liam gives him a sharp look, and sighs softly.]

You've heard, then?

[He wonders, vaguely, who told him. Only... a very small number of people know from him. In fact, he's actually only told one person.]
retraced: (fix me now)

[personal profile] retraced 2012-01-14 11:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Not every detail.

[Only the basics, and only from a third party source. He hadn't asked for specifics.]
easilyflustered: (troubled)

[personal profile] easilyflustered 2012-01-15 05:22 am (UTC)(link)
[Liam nods, tiredly, shivering just slightly.]

She wasn't in control... and the other person involved encouraged her.
