064 ☣ this is totally dream bubbles

You know, Admiral, I realize it's casual and we play fast and loose with rules sometimes, but Death Bingo is not a team sport.

[Grumpy Anya is grumpy. Mussed hair, big mug of tea.]

I'm thinking of starting a nap room in one of the common rooms. Bean bags and cushions and comforters, nice music. If the effect is still working during the day, we can wake each other up. If we can't stop the flood at least we can get some damn rest.

You have to disclose if you're likely to choke anyone who wakes you up, though. I might invest in a water gun.

[She holds something up to the camera. It looks sort of like a syringe, except for the odd, opaque, organic shape of it.]

Is anyone else getting odd souvenirs?

So.

Peter's known Anya for a long time. Seriously. Like, maybe years at this point, his sense of time is so screwed up with his trip home that lasted a month but actually spanned a year and a half or... something. He's not even really sure.

Anyway, he knows she's kind of weird, and paranoid, and used to be way worse off than she is now (wasn't everyone?), but the nightmare he wakes up from that stars him as Anya Lehnsherr - the note makes it pretty clear who it is, even ignoring all the weird-but-slightly-understandable, homicidal urges towards Erik - kind of really just throws that into harsh perspective.

It makes showing up for work the next morning a little awkward.

"Um. Hey."

"Yeah." Not at all psychotic indeed. It makes it all the more difficult to reconcile what he dreamed about last night and how things are normally, now.

(He's a different person now too, but the difference doesn't seem as severe. Not at all.)

"I, um. Might have got one of yours."

A sword. He won't tell me what it does, though.

You won't be able to wake someone up if they're in a memory.

[Dean has a unique advantage in this flood; he is intimately familiar with how it feels when a wide variety and a wide assortment of pain happens to his body specifically, he knows how he sounds when he is burned, when he is cut, when he is drowned. He knows how to tell the difference between real pain and remembered pain - not anything else, just pain, but oh he knows that one well - so in general, he is pretty sure he can at least tell the difference between when he is dreaming alone or along with someone else.

He also learned a long, long, long time ago how to detach himself from everything that's happening to him, no matter what it is, and pay the fuck attention.

Which is not to say he's having a great time: he's trapped in a cell with nowhere to hide and nothing to do to distract himself, no chance to get up and move somewhere else to find something to distract himself with, and he has a hard time sleeping anyway. Now, forcibly sober and on display, with other peoples' deaths compounded on top of his own, he sounds worn out and harsh, but he needs to do something. He needs to say something.

He needs to know. His voice is low and something like soft but coolly detached, sharpened with weight rather than a fine edge:
] Still think I'm soft?

[He makes a low sound, a throaty sound, possibly a chuckle but too dark for that. Too dazed.]

Did we? I don't remember.

Time gets harder and harder to keep in a straight line, the longer it goes.

[There is a different edge to his voice, possibly brought out here in the anonymity of audio communication, where his sharp eyes and the hard, solid lines of his face can't influence, disguise, misdirect.

There is something slightly loose there where it should be immobile, faint and inconsistent, but present.
]

Aren't we all, though?

I mean, what is there to figure out? How hard can it be?

[audio; before she goes into Zero] shit sorry I just realized I sandwiched this in between dreams

Blood.

I got blood.

[What a shitty souvenir.]
tucky: (you've been no help at all‚ but thanks)

Nah. They're back in my room and I can't go in there right now.

Merlin says I got to stay in his place for a while. Since he let me out of the lock-up.

Yes. [Jean's voice is achingly soft. She's trying not to stare, but she can't look at Anya and not remember screaming, burning, weeping -

But it was a long time ago. They're both safe and whole, more or less.

She takes a breath, and raises her hand. Anya's scarf was charred and torn, when she woke; it's pristine now. It was the closest she could get to making a difference.]

Yes. [Another breath, slow and steady.] I'm - I don't want to dredge it all up, but...I thought you might want it.
