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.

Number Five, discomfort :'D

[It was a small escort mission, the Firsts transporting the girl to a more secure location. This could have been easily done with Thirds, but the girl they were transporting? Well, it just bumped up to a Firsts mission instead.]

[It was time for camp and Ryou was trying to sleep, it had been a long day, and likely a long day tomorrow as well, but she just couldn't. It was a well protected area and the resting soldiers were... quiet enough.]

[She just couldn't find a way to stay warm, no matter which way she turned or pulled the blanket around herself. There seemed to be no consistent source of heat for her. And, being the way she is, that wasn't a good sign for her. So instead, she sat up shivering, pulled the blanket around her closer and moved closer towards the fire, hoping that the guards on watch didn't mind her being awake at this hour.]
mentors: (And is that alright with you?)

[Angeal has the first shift, early into the night but still to late to be morning yet. He does not mind, knowing that his friends can have the time to rest on a easier to deal with schedule while he watches over them.

Not that there was much to be worried about- Moving with three First Class SOLDIERs and one person to protect is overkill. They aren't even really going that far- moving on foot only needed because ShinRa wanted to keep their head low.

Not that Angeal can blame them, considering some of the things that they get up to.

Switching with Sephrioth now, Angeal moves to sit by the fire, spotting the girl close by and though he smiles at her, concern is laced though blue eyes.]

You're up late, Ryou. Is everything okay?
whitewizardgirl: (pigtailed girl)

[personal profile] whitewizardgirl 2013-08-27 02:31 am (UTC)(link)
[She would have probably dozed off in front of the fire, but she was still so cold and she couldn't figure out why. She was startled out of a doze when Angeal spoke to her, making her pull the blanket closer.]

N-no, everything is fine. [No need to wake up Sephiroth and Genesis just because she's not very good at retaining body heat.] I... I couldn't go to sleep because it's a little chilly out here...
mentors: (Is that alright?)

[personal profile] mentors 2013-08-27 03:16 am (UTC)(link)
It is, isn't it? [He had barely noticed, one of the perks of being a SOLDIER. He stands, beckonig her to go with him.] Well then, lets get you into one of those sleeping bags, Miss Ryou.

[After all, those were military grade. It should keep her warmed up nicely.]
whitewizardgirl: (Is this really necessary?)

[personal profile] whitewizardgirl 2013-08-27 03:52 am (UTC)(link)
[The big sleeping bags? The ones that would look like they would swallow her with just one bite? After all, she was tiny compared to the other three SOLDIERs.]

A-are you sure that there's another one? I-I don't want to take yours and then you wouldn't have a place to sleep once your shift is over. [And let's not talk about sharing with Sephiroth or Genesis. That would just be plain weird. Not to mention, still doesn't want to wake them up for just that.]
mentors: (my faith in you;)

[personal profile] mentors 2013-08-28 02:51 am (UTC)(link)
Don't worry- With how cold you get, they should of thought to get you one.

[He turns back to her as she gets up, and gives her a wink.] I'll make sure to chew them out for that one. Now come on, let's get you warmed up.
whitewizardgirl: (Guuhhhh)

[personal profile] whitewizardgirl 2013-08-28 03:28 am (UTC)(link)
[She really doesn't want to be taking Angeal's, since he'll eventually need rest at least some point during the night. She didn't want him to catch cold, after all.]

[But, just as expected, she practically is swallowed whole by the bag, being the tiny thing she is, compared to Angeal, at least.]

It's... it's really heavy... [The cloth was heavy so the bag was heavy around her. She felt like she could barely move.]
mentors: (And worse but-)

[personal profile] mentors 2013-08-31 11:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Too heavy, Ryou?

[He picks up the edge of it, just to make sure she didn't get too stuck in it. Hmm, perhaps that whole SOLDIER strength thing made him never really notice...]
whitewizardgirl: (Is this really necessary?)

[personal profile] whitewizardgirl 2013-09-01 02:21 am (UTC)(link)
[Well, she could at least still stick her head out of the top. But, that was pretty much it, just a sleeping bag with a head sticking out of it.]

...A little bit. [She's not a big, strong SOLDIER like him. But it is warmer, just a little heavy on her body.]
