Dreaming Dark Desires



"Well, you shouldn't make assumptions based on no knowledge. That's a silly thing to do. How do you even know she was a cultist not just a crazy lady?" Basically the same thing, she smiled to herself. "I think you might be one of those crazy ladies, you know. And I really think you wanted to have the drama class"
“Drama class,” She laughed, “ Now that’s hardly fair have you tried doing stairs on this thing.” Gesturing to my tail. “Even you would have issue friend. “ The other woman laying in the grass and getting comfortable. Looking up Rita saw the stars, though it was bright as day. The other girl probably saw differently. Still questions though she was probably wrong about Famula. This place was so familiar to her, every time she was sad she came here, to rest and heal she always came here. Holding the belief that this was some form of the afterlife, her form of afterlife, everyone's was different and…
"What assumptions have you made?"

The question brought her out of her thoughts and back to wherever she was. It wasn’t one of her trance states, these weren’t her memories. However, it was The Country, maybe this girl was important to it.
“I Assumed that Famula was something to do with necromancy. I have little understanding of Immortals really. That the symbol I saw on that girl was Famula’s and that she was in part responsible for what hat happened to me “ Her eyes were beautiful, now she had time to appreciate her fully. Her first lover had sea green eyes. She was so amazing the way she smiled, casual… She misted into view and Rita closed her eyes making her go. She was gone and never coming back. A queasy vortex like feeling as dreams shifted, stars turning to a blur of light, head spinning slightly. Laying on the grass dreamscape shifting. Looking down at herself, an amber coloured gown. Heart a flutter the bottom in sequins and sparkle. Getting herself upright.

The other woman was at a cooking stove carefully cutting up vegetables.
"The dolls are coming for a teaparty!" it was said with haste as was the cutting.
"I hope that Mrs Witherspiddle doesn't lose her eye in the soup again!" Rita gently held her hand before the poor girl hurt herself.
“Approach everything with Calm and Patience. You rush and you make mistakes, people get hurt. You can’t do things properly when your hands are shaking.” Smiling gently at the other girl.
“Suppose we make sandwiches and tea, then I sing for our guest.” A little pulse of joy and a bright smile. Making as much sense as could be achieved in this strange dream world.
“That’s what I always did with friends. Simple comforting food instead of fancy meals.” A thought crossed her mind and she looked the girl in the eyes. “I could teach you to sing. I may not be an expert but I know how to carry a tune” She had little skill in singing truthfully but wasn’t bad at it. Besides in this dreamstate she could have the voice of an angel and no one could tell her otherwise.

50th Ymiden, 716
"Even I? What do you mean?" she asked and Faith looked at the snake-woman with a raised eyebrow. But then she explained that she had assumed that a crazy woman was a worshipper of Famula and Faith frowned a deep frown "What symbol is that?" she asked, concern about who was saying what and to who about her beloved Immortal evident on her face. "Is this a test? You shouldn't be so quick to judge, it is bad. You are responsible for what you did. That's the price you pay for being free to make those choices" never was anything more true to her. But this woman was defaming Famula's name and Faith was having none of it. So, she was already naffed off.

But then.....

As she stood, chopping vegetables carefully, even though her voice sounded urgent, her movements were careful, the woman came over and started to try and teach her how to do that. Something in Faith snapped and she turned to her, her silver eyes angry "I am not shaking! My Hands have done this a thousand thousand times and you come here like you know how to chop vegetables. Why are you so patronising???? I have done this all my life! Go away, you are not my friend and Mrs Witherspiddle is not *our* guest. I don't want you to sing, I don't even want you to talk!!!! I don't want you to teach me I just want to be at the University with Malcolm but you broke that!! YOU broke it!! Get out! Mrs Witherspiddle is here and I need to chop these vegetables, get away from me!!!" she yelled, louder than she ever had or would in the waking world. Because she had been there, carefully chopping vegetables and this woman had come along and now she was taking over and talking about singing to *their* guest. But really, why she did that was because it had been about the university, about many other things and then everything had changed. She didn't fully understand what she was feeling but what it was, simply put, was frustrated.

"Go away! Just GO AWAY!!!" she yelled and, as she shouted that in her sleep, Faith woke up.

She was wrong, oh so wrong. Now she knew, but oh what she had done. Backing off as the young girl berated her. Anger flaring up and consuming her as her voice got louder and louder, world turning to black.
"Go away, you are not my friend and Mrs Witherspiddle is not *our* guest. I don't want you to sing, I don't even want you to talk!!!!" Slinking down covering herself for fear of being hit, eyes welling up in tears. She didn't want to hurt her, she was so wrong and it was too late. Red clouding the edge of her vision, struggling for breath as she feared away from this girl.
"I don't want you to teach me I just want to be at the University with Malcolm but you broke that!! YOU broke it!!" Rita didn't know how or why but it was true. she had ruined things, the other woman was happy and content and she had to come in and ruin it all. All her fault everything was her fault.
"Go away! Just GO AWAY!!!" So she did.

Rita didn't wake like her partner. She went somewhere dark and cold, the only sound to be heard was her own crying. Curled up alone crying her eyes out again. It was her fault, always her fault. She had done something terrible and upset this girl. Like before it was her fault her love was gone never to return. She was trapped her crying, guilt and worthlessness swarming her pushing her deeper and deeper down. Finally the shafts of dawn broke through the window and Rita awoke, tears streaming down her face.
(OOC) It was fun. Thanks

Collaboration: 5/5 you played off Faith well and gave her plenty to work with. I actually liked that you made your dream a nightmare while hers was a dream.

Structure: 5/5 I did notice a few mistakes but not nearly enough to penalize you. Just make sure your checking over your work before you post it.
“she looked to her left and a woman ran for her spear coming for her. She screamed and fell rolling down the stands to land at the side of the other girl.”
like with this sentence the wording got a bit weird and it was hard to tell who was who.
Oh and the read dialogue is a little harsh, I would possibly consider using a slightly more muted colour. It may just because I'm colour blind or something but its harder for me to read.
