A Mad Tea-Party

[19:47:13] <Wixelt> Wilson naps in the commons
[19:47:35] <Wixelt> He dreams it's raining shoes
[19:48:47] <LemurLord> One of the shoes floats close to him
[19:49:01] <Wixelt> Wilson looks at the shoe
[19:50:19] <LemurLord> The shoe whispers to him in a backwards language that Wilson somehow understand
[19:50:36] <Wixelt> Wilson listens intently
[19:50:53] <Wixelt> After all, it's not every day a shoe talks to you
[19:51:42] <LemurLord> When the shoe is finished talking it floats towards a door that has always been there
[19:51:59] <Wixelt> What did it say?
[19:52:02] <LemurLord> It tries to open the door with it's shoelaces
[19:53:06] <LemurLord> Despite being completely aware that the shoe did speak and he could understand it, the exact details of the conversation elude his subconscious mind
[19:55:53] <Wixelt> Wilson goes over to help the shoe open the door
[19:56:42] <LemurLord> The door is locked, but the keyhole seems large enough to peer through
[19:57:09] <Wixelt> Wilson crouches down and outs his eye to the hole
[19:57:37] <Wixelt> *puts
[19:58:38] <LemurLord> As he does the hole grows in size and Wilson falls through
[19:59:29] <Wixelt> "Wha-"
[19:59:59] <LemurLord> Wilson is now in midair and falling fast
[20:00:17] <LemurLord> Clouds whip past him drenching him in water
[20:00:18] <Wixelt> Wilson has a sinking sense of deja vu
[20:01:00] <LemurLord> To his right is a table with a few chairs
[20:01:13] <LemurLord> On top is a fancy tea set
[20:01:40] <LemurLord> They are keeping pace with Wilson as he reaches terminal velocity
[20:02:27] <Wixelt> Wilson frowns to himself ~I've read this before~
[20:06:27] <LemurLord> The china jitters on its plates, but remain relatively attached to the table
[20:07:54] <Wixelt> Wilson keeps his eyes peeled for anything with a note telling him to eat or drink it
[20:08:12] <Wixelt> He also makes a mental note to do no such thing
[20:08:48] <LemurLord> There are no such notes because maybe I have better things to do than copy that book verbatim
[20:09:59] <LemurLord> …ahem… One of the chairs slowly moves out from under the table, almost invitingly
[20:14:07] <Wixelt> Wilson has no way of getting over to it, so makes no move to do so
[20:17:13] * ihp has joined #origins-ic
[20:17:37] <LemurLord> Since the concept of holding your arms out to guide airflow eludes our intrepid hero, the chair moves towards Wilson and scoops him up
[20:18:31] <Wixelt> Wilson makes a small noise of surprose
[20:21:40] * Sax has joined #origins-ic
[20:22:07] <LemurLord> The chair moves back to the table making a noise similar to grinding against a hardwood floor
[20:23:08] <Wixelt> Wilson looks over the items on the table
[20:24:03] * TesKin has joined #origins-ic
[20:26:30] <LemurLord> Everything seems normal to Wilson. the tea cups, the biscuits, the dead rats, and the sugar bowls are all in their rightful spot
[20:26:58] <Wixelt> Wilson glances nervously at the dead rats
[20:27:51] <LemurLord> The rats gossip amongst themselves and hardly notice Wilson's arrival
[20:27:53] <LemurLord> Rude
[20:29:12] <TesKin> Branko is asleep in his room.
[20:31:22] <LemurLord> Branko dreams of a table falling through the sky and tea and dead rats and Wilson sitting at the opposite end waiting nervously
[20:31:52] <TesKin> Branko looks around, confused.
[20:31:56] <TesKin> "What the hell?"
[20:32:33] <Wixelt> "You tell me. I'm just as confused as you are"
[20:32:55] <Wixelt> Wilson frowns
[20:34:11] <TesKin> Branko sits down across the table from Wilson.
[20:34:50] <LemurLord> All of a sudden the dead rats hush and turn their attention to the head of the table where a large ornate chair slowly moves out allowing an unseen entity to sit
[20:35:23] <TesKin> Branko slowly draws his revolver and cocks it.
[20:35:35] <Wixelt> Wilson motions for him to put it away
[20:35:45] <LemurLord> The only that can be seen is it's shadow which is cast onto the back of the chair
[20:36:05] <TesKin> Branko frowns at him and holsters it.
[20:36:07] <LemurLord> The revolver is cocked and tea pours out the barrel
[20:36:47] <TesKin> Branko just looks at his gun. "Damnit."
[20:37:37] <LemurLord> The shadow reachs across the table and grabs the gun
[20:38:08] * ProcyonLotor is now known as ProcyonGone
[20:38:12] <Wixelt> Wilson looks at then entity
[20:38:16] * ProcyonGone is now known as ProcyonBRB
[20:38:41] <Wixelt> "Seeing as I am unable to control this lucid dream, I can only assume you are not simply a creation of my own mind"
[20:38:57] <Wixelt> "So why have you summoned us here?"
[20:38:58] <TesKin> 4df+6 (STR) You ain't gettin mai gun shadow thingy
[20:38:58] <Glacon> TesKin: (STR) You ain't gettin mai gun shadow thingy: 6 (4df+6=0, 4-, 0, 3+)
[20:39:09] * DrSavage has joined #origins-ic
[20:39:52] <LemurLord> It pours itself a cup of tea and speaks, it's voice calm but you can't tell if it's a male or a female speaking, "Or, you just have an overactive imagination"
[20:40:13] <Wixelt> "It's possible. But I think otherwise"
[20:40:25] <LemurLord> The shadow brushes of Branko's show of strength like he was simply a child
[20:40:48] <TesKin> Branko isn't happy about the shadow taking his gun.
[20:41:05] <TesKin> He looks at Wilson. "If what you say is true, make it give me back my gun."
[20:42:00] <LemurLord> The shadow takes a sip from it's cup. the tea simply spills onto the bottom of the chair
[20:42:07] <Wixelt> Wilson looks at Branko "As I said, I can't control this dream. In a similar way that unless there's external interention, dreaming about a memory will always have the same outcome"
[20:42:13] * DrSavage has quit (Ping timeout: 180 seconds)
[20:42:26] <Wixelt> "I cannot change the outcome this thing's actions"
[20:42:32] <TesKin> Branko just glared at the shadow. "Fine."
[20:43:05] <LemurLord> "Very wise, very logical. But you forget one important factor…"
[20:43:11] <LemurLord> It takes another sip
[20:43:17] <Wixelt> "And what would that be?"
[20:44:13] <LemurLord> "You are as much a part of this dream as I am. How do you know you are the audience and not simply another actor playing his role,"
[20:44:18] <LemurLord> "?"
[20:44:52] * DrSavage has joined #origins-ic
[20:45:03] <Wixelt> "Ever heard of the phrase 'I think, therefore I am'?"
[20:46:35] <LemurLord> "It's easy to say that, dear. But your thoughts could just be another part of the script. Who can say?"
[20:47:40] <Wixelt> "That will be determined in time"
[20:48:13] * TesKin has quit (Quit: I am not the man I once was, nor will I ever be.)
[20:48:39] <LemurLord> The shadow reaches out and pushes Branko out of seat, sending him tumbling down through the sky
[20:48:53] <LemurLord> Presumably to the ground below
[20:51:42] <Wixelt> Wilson glances in shock at what just happened to Branko, then looks back at the shadow
[20:51:50] <Wixelt> "You just be glad this is only a dream"
[20:52:03] <LemurLord> The shadow speaks loudly, its voice growing to a shriek, "We will meet again, darling. I have a message to deliver and I intend to do so in due time,"
[20:52:30] <LemurLord> Below, the ground comes into view and it is getting closer, fast
[20:54:44] <Wixelt> Wilson looks at the shadow "So be it. I've seen things far more scary than y-"
[20:54:55] <Wixelt> Presumably Wilson hits the ground.
[20:55:19] * ihp has quit (Ping timeout: 181 seconds)
[20:56:55] <LemurLord> Indeed he does, but just before he embraces the dirt he awakens unharmed in his resting spot in commons
[20:57:15] * Soulless has joined #origins-ic
[20:57:20] <LemurLord> Everything seems normal except for a familiar teacup resting on his stomach
[20:57:34] <Wixelt> Wilson shakes his head, then glances down at the teacup
[20:57:38] <Wixelt> He shudders
