Skies of Lanet Chapter 1 episode 3 - Afterparties and Lucid Dreaming

Post  Sparkles on Tue Sep 18, 2012 5:53 am

After setting someone's corpse to rest, Divah felt like the planned pleasantries of a "job well done" weren't quite for him today. He couldn't have been more than 5 seconds late in saving the reporter, whose vitals only just faded from his hands as the seekers looted freely from the body.

He almost felt a little guilty that such a beautiful feather had landed in his possession from the reporter, but thought no more of it when he considered who else might have taken possession instead. Opening the door to his temporary base of operations and quarters, he felt the need to place it somewhere nice, settling on placing it as a centrepiece to his tastefully arranged focusing corner.

Never given enough space to pack all his goods and wares, Divah soon learned to sleep normally in a seated position, doing away with the stiff bedding that the ship had provided to facilitate the wide range of books and research notes that quickly found and occupied the space it once stood. He began to drift off from the exhaustion of the day, the only use of his focusing corner being to drain his last moments of consciousness and send him into the world of lucid dreams.

Johann seems relieved that someone had brought out something to drink. He still appears in a less than stellar mood as he sips a strong drink. He seems as though if all his power was manifested into little cards, he would have torn them all.

In the realm of dreams, there is a faint sound in the darkness.
It tickles at the edge of your mind for a while, little more than an echo until it clarifies.
A whispering voice on the edge of your hearing, and softly it calls your name...
"Divah...Divah...Lunus..."

The world he had entered was different from his usual slumber, it was as if everything was more detached to him than usual, every concept that he once used to experience so well-defined at these moments was just a hazy cloud. He was vaguely aware of some sort of surrounding, there was a buzz of unintelligible conversation; it was impossible to gain any sort of solid grounding in the situation, causing him to fall back on his 'home' inside the dream world.

Casting his mind to another place, the surroundings began to emit a soft light. Details were picked out as books and stacks of paper on grand bookcases that spanned well beyond reasonable distance in parallel, a study desk and some rather comfortable looking chairs were grown out of his mind as he continued to conjure up a vast library of everything he had seen, heard or learned from as far back as he could date this realm of his sleep.

Faint whispers came out from a silence, certainly not from his control, even his dreams were strange today, it seemed.

Divah made a low hum to signal some sort of awareness, but made no move to act on anything for now, he always had a full arsenal free of the silly concepts of ethical considerations in his dreams, and whoever this is hadn't attacked him yet, so it could still go peacefully for now.

The visual elements of this place were hazy at best, but the presence was clear.
There was a humming sound coming from the figure.

Walking up to Johann, Lydia also grabs herself a drink.
"I have one of those magic headaches...I am one-hundred percent drained", she puts a hand to her temple, as she downs her drink.
"What's wrong with you?" she looks to Johann's stern expression, "cheer up a little bit...?"

"As much as I hate to tell you this, the drained feeling does not go away with time. You just get used to it more. As a child I would feel sick for the rest of the day after using up all my magic, at least I only get a small headache now." She smiles to him lightly, "At least try one smile? I don't mind if it's faked..."

"Yu hear me, Divah Lunus?"

Recognising not only her voice, but Syuzannah's presence inside his mind made Divah more curious than weary of what was to come, he turned a few degrees and faced level with what he could identify as a foreign element in his mind, the only other "living" entity in this place he had conjured up.

"Oh hi there~! Why don't you make yourself comfortable?"

Unsure quite how one would treat an acquaintance in his mind, he decided that he would treat it as if it were his home. walking over to some of the chairs he had around a study area, he sat behind a table and made a sweeping motion covering the seats in front of him, marking them as 'acceptable' areas to be. With his other hand, he swept his green cape over the table, a tea set appearing as it moved over.

"What brings you to these parts?"

Syuzanna could not make out the details of this place, but she could feel his intent, and moved- if that were at all the word, to the space Divah had indicated. She was impressed at his level of control, both of this place and that he did not seem very surprised to find her in it. Positioning her mental-self close to where he seemed to be, she settled there.

To Divah, watching the space where he thought the voice was coming from, there appeared to be a wisp of the shadows at the edge of his perceived location that slipped gently from the edge of what he had made here. It floated lazily, somewhat erratically toward the chairs before him, before settling. As it crossed the room, it seemed to resemble a figure, but it was indistinct, and hard to focus on. The misty shadow was barely even ghost-like, and would not have been recognisable had it not been for her voice. Every so often he got the impression of her appearance, but it was barely a flicker, and did not last.

"Apologies Divah, forgive me for intrude, yes? Was pity I did noht see yu last night."

Divah recognised that he was talking to a concept that his mind wasn't used to, deciding that must be the reason for his complete inability to focus on, or quite understand how, Syuzanna was here. Of course even if he couldn't quite understand it, he accepted that it was definitely her 'concept' in his mind right now. Thinking better than to offer hot drinks to a fuzzy perception, he took a seat and materialised a book representing just one part of his mind, he cracked it open and read as he spoke.

"I certainly can't argue that, especially with the gift that you apparently left with a certain nosy reporter type?"

Divah was more questioning than stating, he'd had plenty of clashes with Cecil over his journalism, but that was starting to fade with some conversation, and collaboration with the Cabal's other researchers. The change was positive, and if what he concluded with his still-living necromancer friend held true, the leverage he could hold would foster a whole new relationship... and unprecedented access and control within the media.

As he went through his thought process his face, mostly covered, betrayed no emotion. Of course, in a world of dreams his essence had practically split in two, a surface layer of intrigue with a bubbling layer of scheming joy underneath it. Divah tried not to tip his hand too much about the blood, and Cecil. He could very well have been wrong about all of this, and that would be an embarrasing fallout to deal with.

Pleased with the elf's welcoming attitude, there might have been a smile in the shadow.
Though it was not easily seen, it could be heard in her reply.
"Seseel? Yes, I hope to help heem in his...situation. Eet weel need careful research. Perhaps yu weel help with dhis?" she purred.
From what she could tell, he was a skilled Alchemist, and would be a great asset to the reporter if he worked wisely.

[OOC: O WAO my hair was short back in Prospero, just noticed]

"Already covered... If all goes to plan he'll know who to find."

Divah caught what might have been a glimpse of happiness from his guest, and took it as a sign that things might be headed for a more interesting series of events than he originally anticipated. Of course the pursuit of knowledge was always filled with rewards, but there was something about the whole situation that he found particularly interesting.

Being spoken to by an idea or projection from another persons' mind, a person who had died and come back, seemingly docile to the tens of seekers who had executed her so crudely not a year ago... Perhaps with the exception of a Tritoni, but nonetheless... Something was in the works, and he couldn't honestly discern what it was, yet.
Divah cracked a slightly darker grin than usual, remembering a few choice moments of where his rank and efforts were ignored by large, before expelling them. If she was in his mind, the risk of conjuring up an image to act as a weakness wasn't quite a risk he could take, he was still associated with the same groups that killed her... however loose that thread of connection was.

Knowing he was a man of secrets, she was satisfied with his vague response.
The shadow that represented Syuzanna shifted slightly and resettled in it's chair, the conversation moved on.
Remembering how his eyes had lit up during the short conversation they had shared the night before, she was curious to know-

Divah pondered the best way to answer that. His research was held back quite a bit compared to the massive burst of knowledge in Prospero, but all things considered the past year was quite good to him.
He'd learned the secrets of poisons, documented unheard of potions and tinctures, and expanded his personal library quite a bit. He settled on as simple a response as possible

Initially you are not sure if she is actually listening, but her attention focuses as you continue.
You get the impression that if you could see her face, she'd have just raised an eyebrow.

"Read, test, apply"

Divah seemed to move his hands in motion with each word, to indicate an order of hierarchy from each point to the next. He confirmed Syuzana's question rather bluntly, deciding that perhaps he'd be a bit more polite than just giving a partially relevant statement.

"I test a good deal of things, provided the seekers haven't already documented it; and even then I like to make sure, I think the best form of knowledge is what you gain from trial... and inevitably horrible error... as opposed to making guesses from ambiguous source"

"The liquid you gave to Cecil... seems to cause some personality defects in the right people, though I'm not quite sure why..."

"Yes... One of our Shuruti associates seemed to have some sort of... reaction... to a small sample"

Remembering what happened was both entertaining and slightly annoying, he could quite tell if the reaction was serious or just some elaborate scheme to have people pay attention to the noble. He didn't put acting out of the equation, in fact he was almost sure that's what it was, but perhaps his religious allegiances were involved in it too, he would have liked a controlled environment and a good test base, but the Seekers didn't seem to care much for investing in research recently, just taking in whatever was discovered.

"Do people typically flounder about intoxicated when they drink that? By the way he reacted, I think he's lucky to be alive... If he wasn't acting... which was likely... But the Sun King doesn't really approve of things swarming with necrotic energy, even if it tastes delicious."

"He was of the Sun King?" came the voice, with a strange mix of feelings within it.
You're not sure if it's primarily amusement, concern, or surprise.

"We needed a test dummy, and he wasn't unwilling to it, what can I say?"

Divah scratched the back of his head sheepishly as he let slip that he took a small taste of the blood.
