    Summary

    Spamton may have it all made, but he won't rest until he ensures he has all the info he needs to stay on top.

    And when he asks his source for more, they're all too happy to provide.

    Summary

    Soon enough, she takes up a habit of talking to herself. It fills the silence if nothing else, reminds her that she isn't lost in total nothingness, helps her pass time that she eventually comes to stop keeping track of. Sometimes, she swears she hears a sound in the distance, something almost like scratching that seems to get louder with each passing minute, and sometimes she wonders if whatever is making the sound will find her. Even so, she doesn't dare go looking for it. All she's going to do is sit right here, and hopefully that will keep her from getting any more lost.

    Time bleeds into itself like an open wound. The scratching grows louder, cutting into Dess' thoughts as if it were trying to get her attention. She finds she doesn't need to eat here, but still she makes dinner from whatever fresh berries are left in her bag and stale marshmallows - after all, she hasn't got anything better to do.

    She looks at the photo of her family, burns their faces into her memory. To herself, she says "don't forget them," a stern reminder, a whisper etched white-on-black. To them, she prays "don't forget me."

    Or, the disappearance of one December Holiday, in three parts.

    Summary

    There’s a strange and ironic sort of push-and-pull about it: Kris opens a fountain, in an act of rebellion or perhaps loneliness, and the PLAYER closes it.

    (or, several contemplations on ralsei's awareness of the nature of his circumstance.)

    Summary

    It's sacrilege, to think things like that.

    Ralsei knows who he is. Ralsei knows what he wants. Ralsei knows exactly what to do.

     

    He never had a choice.


    //


    Ralsei tries to find comfort in the prophecy and what he believes to be his sole purpose. The rest of The Fun Gang really can’t relate.

    Summary

    One day you were jumping out from under the bed, and your horns caught on the edge of it, and you felt it like they were a part of your body, like tugging on them would send you stumbling sideways as your head throbbed. But then you grew up, and you could not move, even as your legs walked and your mouth talked and your heart curdled in your chest like something dead.

    (If you're just a heart on a chain, how do any of your choices matter?)
