Labyrinth of the Mind

[02:20:52] <Balthazaar> Olga reads in the lounge
[02:20:53] * Wixelt has joined #origins-ic
[02:21:11] <Wixelt> Wilson reads in the commons
[02:21:32] <Optimal> Doug lounges in the commons.
[02:21:47] <LemurLord> Roy commons in the lounge
[02:21:50] <LemurLord> ..wait
[02:23:31] <Balthazaar> Olga stretches and lays down
[02:23:34] * Daedalus has joined #origins-ic
[02:30:55] * Neon has joined #origins-ic
[02:34:45] * Scantron has quit (Ping timeout)
[02:35:22] * Scantron has joined #origins-ic
[02:35:22] * ChanServ set modes [+h] on Scantron
[02:37:37] <Wixelt> Wilson stops reading and settles down for a nap.
[02:38:00] * Soulless has quit (Quit: The best reason for having dreams is that in dreams no reasons are necessary. )
[02:39:02] * Scantron has quit (Ping timeout: 186 seconds)
[02:39:25] <Optimal> Everybody is a nappin in the commons.
[02:39:30] <Balthazaar> Olga has started snoring lightly
[02:39:40] <Wixelt> As has Wilson
[02:39:43] <Daedalus> Billy's in his room, sleeping.
[02:39:52] <ihp> Jacob is drunk in his room.
[02:40:09] <ihp> Like he has been for the past week or so.
[02:40:26] <LemurLord> Roy is also asleep, how curious
[02:40:58] <Optimal> Let's all just hope that nothing goes wrong during everyone's slumber.
[02:41:20] <LemurLord> Of course something will
[02:41:58] <Balthazaar> In her dreams, Olga has two eyes. She's working in a field of frozen earth, her captors watching her and the others for any sign of slacking
[02:42:40] <Wixelt> Wilson dreams of camels again, for some reason.
[02:42:58] <Daedalus> Billy dream's he's a knight and is fighting giant spiders.
[02:43:24] <LemurLord> Roy's chasing a bad guy down a grimy alley way
[02:43:39] <Wixelt> Billy, your horse is now a camel.
[02:44:08] <Optimal> Douglass is dreaming of oppressing minorities.
[02:44:16] <Daedalus> Billy frowns, but keeps riding towards the spider.
[02:44:45] <Wixelt> (Hang on)
[02:44:49] <Wixelt> 4df+6
[02:44:49] <Glacon> Wixelt: 7 (4df+6=3+, 0, 0, 0)
[02:45:05] <Wixelt> Wilson is lucidly dreaming
[02:46:05] <Balthazaar> Olga stumbles and drops her hoe. A guard grabs her and starts dragging her away
[02:47:59] <LemurLord> The guard takes Olga to a large dungeon inhabited by an even larger spider
[02:48:07] <Wixelt> A man rides past on the camel, mowing the guard down as he passes
[02:48:13] <Wixelt> He somehow doesn't hit Olga
[02:48:20] <Wixelt> *A camel
[02:49:09] <Balthazaar> Olga lays where she was left, skeletally thin and looking listlessly at the spider
[02:49:48] <Daedalus> Billy jumps off his camel and tackles a giant spider, bridling it.
[02:50:08] <Optimal> Douglass dreams of that crowd-roaring touchdown.
[02:50:31] <Wixelt> The man on the camel circles round and comes back to Olga's position, just in time to see Billy riding a giant spider like a Bucking Bronko
[02:50:38] <Wixelt> "…the hell?"
[02:51:16] <Daedalus> "WOOOO! FOR QUEEN AND FUCKIN' COUNTRY!" Billy shouts, waving his flail in the air and rearing up his spider.
[02:51:18] <Balthazaar> Olga stares up at the rider
[02:51:25] <Wixelt> It's Wilson
[02:51:34] <LemurLord> Roy follows the bad guy onto a football field, interrupting the game-winning touchdown
[02:52:26] <Wixelt> Wilson dismounts the camel, offering his hand to Olga to help her up.
[02:52:40] <Optimal> Doug throws the football on the ground and does a shitty touchdown dance.
[02:52:41] * Scantron has joined #origins-ic
[02:52:41] * ChanServ set modes [+h] on Scantron
[02:52:50] <Optimal> "WOOOO! YEAH MOTHAFUCKAS!!!"
[02:52:53] <Wixelt> He swears he can hear the distant sound of a large crowd either cheering or roaring
[02:52:56] <Balthazaar> Olga struggles slowly to her feet. Her legs look like they shouldn't be able to support her. "[Need to get back to work…]"
[02:53:20] <Wixelt> "You ok?"
[02:53:49] <LemurLord> Doug is then tackled by Roy, "Ack, get oughta the way boy, this is police business!"
[02:54:00] <Daedalus> Billy proceeds to kill any guards that he sees.
[02:55:08] <Balthazaar> Olga shakes her head and attempts to shamble back towards the camp
[02:55:19] <Optimal> Doug gets back to his feet. "HEY! GET OFF MY FUCKIN FIELD!"
[02:55:42] <Wixelt> Wilson frowns "Olga, you know this is a dream, right?"
[02:56:21] <LemurLord> "He's gettin away," Roy gets back on his feet and continues to give chase to his shady adversary
[02:56:26] <Balthazaar> "What?"
[02:56:32] <Wixelt> "You're asleep"
[02:56:46] <Balthazaar> "I am?"
[02:56:54] <Wixelt> "Yes, you are"
[02:57:11] <Optimal> Doug throws his arms up and goes back to the game.
[02:57:23] <Balthazaar> "Oh…" She leans heavily on the camel
[02:57:44] <Wixelt> "Now if you'll give me a moment…"
[02:58:06] <Wixelt> Wilson turns toward Billy, who is presumably still riding that spider
[02:58:18] <Wixelt> "Hey Billy!"
[02:59:21] <Daedalus> "It's 'Sir William' to you, buddy!" he says, lopping off the head of another German.
[03:00:29] <Wixelt> Wilson chuckles "Doesn't this whole sitaution seem a little strange"
[03:01:21] * Neon has quit (Quit: ajax IRC Client)
[03:03:49] <Daedalus> "In good ol' England? Naw, strange things happen here all the bloody time! Haha!" He rears up his spider again, and somehow you can hear 'God Save the Queen' playing.
[03:04:47] <Wixelt> "No, I mean, first, you think that you're in England. And if you're in England, why are there Nazis around? And if you're in England, why are there camels present?"
[03:05:13] <Balthazaar> Olga fails to climb onto the cammel and falls over
[03:05:34] <Wixelt> Wilson turns and offers his hand to help her up.
[03:06:11] <Daedalus> "The fuck is a camel?" He looks over, "Those things?" He frowns, "Well… I don't know." He looks over at the Nazis, "And they're… huh."
[03:06:29] <LemurLord> Roy continues chasing his bad guy, eventually finding himself in a dungeon occupied by dead Nazis, camels, and a giant spider
[03:06:53] <Wixelt> Wilson looks at Roy, his eyes widening "Ok, wasn't expecting this many people"
[03:07:44] <Daedalus> Billy points at the bad guy roy was chasing and the spider he's on blasts him with some webbing.
[03:07:55] <LemurLord> "Stop him!" Roy shots, pointing at the shadowy man
[03:08:37] <Wixelt> Wilson watches the scene before him
[03:08:40] <Balthazaar> Olga is helped up
[03:08:57] <Wixelt> "This is the most people i've ever seen in one dreamscape before"
[03:09:21] <Daedalus> "Gotcha!" Billy shouts.
[03:09:44] <LemurLord> Roy walks up to the bad guy. Roy looks a lot younger in better shape
[03:09:56] <Wixelt> "Definitely 4 people. Judging by the complicatedness of it, possibly a 5th"
[03:10:03] <Wixelt> *complexity
[03:10:43] <Wixelt> "Billy, i'm just going to say it, since riddles aren't really my style"
[03:10:45] <Balthazaar> "I want to wake up…"
[03:10:49] <Wixelt> "You're dreaming"
[03:11:12] <LemurLord> "… Wait, why was I chasing you," Roy mutters to himself as the veil of the dream begins to lift
[03:11:14] <Daedalus> "Awesome." Billy grins.
[03:11:21] <LemurLord> "And why are you guys here?"
[03:11:22] <Wixelt> Wilson turns to Olga "Technically, you're lucid now. You should just be able to will yourself awake"
[03:11:34] <Wixelt> "Because this is a shared dreamscape"
[03:11:44] <Wixelt> he answers to Roy
[03:11:46] <Daedalus> "Does that mean I can do anything?"
[03:11:58] <Balthazaar> Olga nods and concentrates, before fading out of the dream
[03:11:59] <Wixelt> "Technically, yes"
[03:12:18] <Wixelt> Wilson summons a giant glowing katana out of nowhere to demonstrate this.
[03:12:40] <LemurLord> "Wait, so I'm dreaming now?" Roy looks himself over
[03:12:47] <Wixelt> "Yes, you are"
[03:13:16] <Wixelt> When Olga wakes, she should see a bunch of people asleep in the commons besides her.
[03:13:33] * Soulless has joined #origins-ic
[03:13:38] <Daedalus> Billy gives himself an afro.
[03:13:41] <LemurLord> "Then who was…" he turns to the bad guy only to realize it had faded from existence, it's purpose having been fulfilled
[03:14:18] <Wixelt> Wilson looks at Billy, blinks a couple of times, then shakes his head.
[03:14:24] <Wixelt> "Not a good look"
[03:14:56] <LemurLord> "So… what now?"
[03:15:25] <Daedalus> Billy gives himself long, blonde hair, "Is this any better?"
[03:15:34] <Wixelt> "Well, since you're both lucid now, at least by appearance, I ought to tell you why the hell we're all in the same dream"
[03:16:05] <Wixelt> "A little"
[03:16:05] <LemurLord> "There's a reason? And here I thought we all just went crazy"
[03:16:18] <Wixelt> "No, there is a reason"
[03:16:44] * Nemi has quit (Quit: )
[03:17:02] <Wixelt> "It's a shared dream. There's some sort of anomaly or entity or phenomenon present on-site that induces shared dreams on occasion"
[03:17:21] <LemurLord> "Do we know where, what, or how?"
[03:17:25] * Optimal is now known as Optigone
[03:17:30] <Wixelt> "No, we don't"
[03:17:39] <Wixelt> "Which is why my current research is based on it"
[03:18:04] <Daedalus> "So… eh… we're in the same place?"
[03:18:44] <LemurLord> "I gues we were in the same place when we fell asleep, right?"
[03:19:03] <LemurLord> "Unless we're prone to sleepwalking," Roy's getting the hang of this
[03:19:05] <Wixelt> "Dreamwise, yes. In reality, I think we're all in more or less close proximity, but the dreams haven't always been limited by that"
[03:19:18] <Balthazaar> Emily, looking about 8 years old, wanders around the corner looking all confused
[03:19:50] <Wixelt> "The close proximity may be responsible for the increased population of this particular- what the…" Wilson stares at Emily.
[03:20:32] <LemurLord> "Are you another dreamer, little one?" Roy asks, utterly confused
[03:20:55] <Daedalus> Billy looks at her, "Oi, who's she?"
[03:21:10] <Wixelt> Wilson looks at the girl briefly "That would be Emily"
[03:21:15] <Wixelt> "I think"
[03:21:17] <Wixelt> he adds
[03:21:21] <Balthazaar> "Uncle Wilson!" She runs up and hugs his legs
[03:21:26] <Daedalus> "Kinda looks like her, Yea."
[03:21:47] <Wixelt> "Uh.. Hey kiddo!"
[03:21:51] <LemurLord> "Oh," Roy thinks about this for a moment, "Dreams are weird"
[03:22:15] <Balthazaar> Emily giggles
[03:22:44] <Wixelt> "And with that, the population of this dream is brought back up to 5"
[03:23:41] <Balthazaar> She tries to climb Billys spider
[03:23:43] <LemurLord> Roy looks around their surroundings. As no one was making a conscious effort to retain the dungeon setting, the room everyone is currently situated in has changed significantly
[03:23:45] <Wixelt> "Myself, Billy, Roy, Emily and- wait…"
[03:24:07] <Wixelt> You may notice that it looks a little more like Site-19 then.
[03:24:18] <Wixelt> Recent Memories and all
[03:24:37] <LemurLord> Though large enough to accommodate a giant-effin-spider
[03:24:50] <Wixelt> ^
[03:25:05] <Daedalus> "Wait… if this is a dream, then-" A red-headed woman comes around the corner with a plate of cookies, "Oi! Willy! Cookies are ready!" She walks up next to him, "Oi, you're gonna get spider tracks all over the floor dear."
[03:25:44] <LemurLord> "The entirety of your imagination, and you dream up cookies?"
[03:25:46] <Balthazaar> "Uncle Billy…" Emily tugs his sleeve. "I want cookies!"
[03:26:03] <Wixelt> "I sensed a 5th person before, but they might be gone now"
[03:26:37] <Daedalus> The woman looks to Emily, "Course you can, dearie." She leans down, "They're a bit hot, though."
[03:27:13] <LemurLord> "Maybe they woke up. I guess it doesn't matter," Roy sits down and a chair made of tree branches grows up from the floor underneath him
[03:27:27] <Balthazaar> :O
[03:27:36] <Daedalus> Billy dismounts his spider and kisses the woman on the cheek, "Thanks Rosie." He takes a cookie.
[03:27:38] <Balthazaar> "Yay yay!" emily jumps around
[03:27:50] <Wixelt> "Probably"
[03:27:53] * Light has joined #origins-ic
[03:28:38] <Wixelt> Wilson crouches down in front of the little girl to be at eye level with her. "Emily?"
[03:29:52] <Balthazaar> "Hi!"
[03:29:57] * thedeadlymoose has joined #origins-ic
[03:30:01] <Balthazaar> She's nibbling on a cookie
[03:30:03] <LemurLord> "So what do we do now? We have until we wake up to do… something"
[03:30:54] <Wixelt> Wilson glances back towards Roy "In theory, you could concentrate and wake up at any time"
[03:31:03] <Wixelt> He turns back to Emily
[03:31:38] <Wixelt> "Emily, do you recognise where you are right now?" he gestures to what appears to be somewhere in Site-19.
[03:32:02] <Balthazaar> "Mhm, home."
[03:32:06] <LemurLord> "Heh, screw that. I haven't felt this young in years," Roy stretches in his youthful body
[03:33:57] <Wixelt> "Well, alright then" Wilson smiles ~She seems happier than she usually is. Maybe it's best not to break that illusion~
[03:35:40] <Balthazaar> Emily tottles over to Roy and hugs his leg
[03:36:26] <LemurLord> "Oh, hey there!" Roy picks her up and sits her on his lap
[03:36:38] <Daedalus> Billy sits with his wife on the couch.
[03:37:04] <LemurLord> His spider chitters behind them
[03:37:41] <Balthazaar> Emily giggles and hugs him
[03:38:15] <Daedalus> His scars are gone and he's wearing a sweatervest in place of his armor.
[03:38:29] * ProcyonLotor is now known as ProcyonBRB
[03:38:41] <LemurLord> If Roy had any interest in the field of psychology, he might see this as extremely unhealthy mental behavior
[03:38:57] <LemurLord> but he doesn't, so he only finds this adorable
[03:40:16] <Wixelt> Wilson really should know some significant stuff about psychology, but he doesn't.
[03:40:46] <Wixelt> So he simply passes Emily's child persona's behaviour off as her letting off some steam
[03:41:07] <Balthazaar> Emily gets distracted by a ball, running over to play with it
[03:42:11] <LemurLord> "So let's say we go on an adventure? Like in the movies? No use in waiting out this dream like we're waiting for the laundry"
[03:43:06] <Wixelt> Wilson chuckles "Sure, why not"
[03:44:04] <Wixelt> A wall sudden falls away, revealing a classy looking hotel lobby.
[03:44:31] * Sax has quit (Ping timeout: 181 seconds)
[03:45:00] <Daedalus> Rosie lookse around, "Aye… what a grand-looking affair this is."
[03:45:17] <LemurLord> Roy stands up and straightens his fancy tux that appears on his body
[03:45:20] * Aphex_ has quit (Broken pipe)
[03:46:05] <Wixelt> Wilson is now wearing a full on suit with a bowtie and everything.
[03:46:09] <Wixelt> Bowties are cool.
[03:46:13] <Balthazaar> Emily goes over to Rosie. "do I need to dress up fancy?"
[03:47:17] <Daedalus> "You do need a pretty dress, Dearie. This place is fancy, don'tcha know?" She smiles and is wearing a red dress herself. Billy smiles and is wearing a tuxedo.
[03:48:38] <LemurLord> Roy walk up to the counter, "I believe we have reservations for," he turns around and does a quick head count, "five"
[03:49:12] <Wixelt> The man behind the counter smiles politely, before checking his books.
[03:49:14] <Balthazaar> Emily nods and scurries off to look for clothes
[03:49:38] <Wixelt> "Name?"
[03:49:44] <Wixelt> the guy asks.
[03:50:13] <LemurLord> "Dobbs," he takes a sip from his champagne glass, "Roy Dobbs"
[03:50:36] <LemurLord> But spits the champagne out when he realizes he hates champagne
[03:50:45] <Wixelt> "Ah yes, the Dobbs Party" He hands the keys to several rooms to you.
[03:50:55] <Wixelt> 3 rooms to be precise.
[03:51:08] <Wixelt> 2 doubles and 1 single.
[03:52:04] * ProcyonBRB is now known as ProcyonLotor
[03:52:07] <LemurLord> "Thank you sir," he takes the keys and distributes them around, "This is great, all that's missing is a classic mystery"
[03:52:28] <Balthazaar> Emily skips back over, in fancy clothes now
[03:54:07] <Daedalus> Billy takes the keys, "Was never that good wit' usin' me head."
[03:54:28] * Roget has joined #origins-ic
[03:54:28] * ChanServ set modes [+qo] on Roget
[03:54:45] <LemurLord> "It's a dream, Billy, you don't have to be,"
[03:55:18] <Wixelt> Presumably, Billy and his wife will go together, Wilson will keep and eye on Emily, and Roy will take the single?
[03:55:40] <Balthazaar> Emily plays with the curtains
[03:56:14] <LemurLord> Wilson is applying too much sense and logic to this dream
[03:56:27] <Wixelt> Wilson is being who he is
[03:56:43] <Wixelt> Also, he's researching these dreams, so he has to test their parameters.
[03:57:01] <Daedalus> Billy looks out the window at the city, which he imagines as a strange mix of New York and London.
[03:57:40] <LemurLord> The Empire State Building is right next to the House of Parliament
[03:58:05] <Roget> «Attention all personnel, please pay attention to this announcement. There are military personnel entering the site. Do not be alarmed. These are members of the Global Occult Coalition, who are assisting us in several classified projects.»
[03:58:23] <Daedalus> Billy is woken up by the announcement.
[03:58:26] <Wixelt> Wilson jumps awake with a start!
[03:58:30] <Wixelt> "Gah!"
[03:58:33] <LemurLord> Roy snorts awake, "Wah?!"
[03:58:37] <Wixelt> "Of all the times…"
[03:58:42] <Daedalus> He looks around, "Awww… I was gettin' into it."
[03:58:43] <Wixelt> Wilson quickly stands
[03:58:48] <Roget> «Any questions can be directed to Assistant Director Fulton. This concludes the announcement.»
[03:58:56] <Balthazaar> Emily quickly morphs into her adult self. "I'm in medical, if I need help I'll call out."
[03:58:59] <LemurLord> "What a weird dream…"
[03:59:01] <Balthazaar> Then she wakes
[03:59:14] <Wixelt> "It appears there are more pressing matters"
[03:59:23] <Wixelt> "And wait- she was lucid?!"
[03:59:31] <Wixelt> "Geez Em…"
[03:59:49] <LemurLord> Roy stretches
[03:59:55] <Balthazaar> She clearly thought that was hilarious
