Chapter Text

Be the noble from Derse a few days in the past.

 

You are now past Rosette Thea Lalonde or Rose Lalonde.

You have been studying in Prospit to perfect your seer abilities. You are a seer from Derse. Well the only seer of Derse. As the only seer families were born and raised in Prospit.

You are currently studying in your room when you hear the door knocking.

“ Come in. Well, hello, lady Kanaya. ”

“ Greetings Your Majesty, We've Received A Letter That Was Addressed To You. ”

“ A letter, ” you ask “ from whom ? ”

“It is From Derse, Your Majesty. ”

She hands the letter to you. You open it the contents are as follows : 

 

 

 

 

Dear Rose,

Rose, a rebellion has flared in Derse by the Amporas. Uncle Richard has been overthrown and executed. Dirk is on the run and so am I. Dave is about to be executed. We need you to stay in Prospit while we try to find a way to take back Derse. Please stay safe.

Signed, your sister,                        

Roxy

 

 

 

You're quiet. Kanaya looks at you worryingly.

“ Your Majesty, Rose Rose Rose. Might I Inquire If You Are Well ? ”

“ ..... Oh, oh no. I- I should have cautioned them, I should have cautioned him! I should've stayed in Derse. I should have stayed. I... I. ” 

You start weeping unconsciously.

“ Rose, Rose, Please Calm Yourself. ”

“ I shouldn't have been so selfish to persue academics and stayed with them. Maybe if I did we could have prevented this. Maybe... maybe. ” You clench your fists, oh you are mad, very mad.

Kanaya looks at you distressingly. “ Oh, Rose. It's Not Your Fault. ”

“ But it is, if i had stayed this could have gone differently. My uncle would not be deceased. My cousins wouldn't be in trouble and my sister would not a fugitive. ”

“ Rose... ” She sighs. “ If You Had Stayed, You Could Have Died. Think About It, I Don't Think Your Sister Would Not Have Wanted Now Would She ? ”

You gaze at her, then gaze at the ground afterwards. “ She would have not. But  I must look for her ! ”

“ No Buts You Are As Safe As Can Be. Your Sister Needn't Worry For Your Safety Of You Stay Here. ”

“ But she is my sister, I want to be by her side and help her. Please, Kanaya, I need to look for her. ”

“ If You Leave Derse Would Be Alerted Of Your Departure And Go After You. ”

“  Then I shall go alone me, I will leave this kingdom and go on a quest to search for my family. ”

“ One That Will Be Treacherous And Unpredictable, You Will Be In Need Of Assistance So I Shall Come Along. ”

“ What ! Kanaya, no ! You are needed here. You're an important member of this kingdom. ”

“ Nonsense, I Am Needed When I Am. But Now I Am Not Needed By Anyone But You. If You Are To Leave Alone, You Will Perish. You Don't Have Any Sort Of Proper Survival Skills. Do You Know How To Cook ? How To Bandage Wounds ? How To Search For Fresh Water ? ”

You're quiet. “ Well, I can defend myself with my magic and weaponry. ”

“ Rose, You Only Have A Limited Supply Of Magic And Weapons Can Go Dull. Please Rose, Let Me Come Along I Know How To Sneak Us Out of Here.  ”

“ You do ? ”

“ Well, Uhh Of Course I Do, I Have Left The Kingdom Before. ”

You think of the outcomes. It won't be that bad if she came along with you. It would increase both your survival chances as well as chances of finding your family.

Suddenly the study room door opens. And a lady with dark orange-bronze hair wearing a seer apprentice robes falls onto the floor.

“ Terezi, what are you doing here ? ” You ask.

“ Were You Eavesdropping On Us ? ” Kanaya speaks after.

“ UHM W3LL Y34 DUHH OF COURS3. 1 W4S JUST P4SSING BY WH3N 1 H34RD 4BOUT YOU TWO CHAT 4BOUT BUSTIN OUTTA OF H3R3. >:] ”

Oh no, what do we do now. “ Terezi, we can explain... ” 

“ 1 DONT C4R3 WH4T3V3R YOUR3 4BOUT TO S4Y BUT 1'M COM1NG 4LONG W1TH Y4. ”

“ Please, don't tell his majesty... Wait, what ? You're not going to report us ? ”

“ W3LL, OF COURS3 NOT !! H3H3H3H4H4H4, WHY WOULD 1 DO TH4T FOR WH3N 1 C4N L34V3 TH1S BOR1NG DUMP. ”

“ Terezi, Why Would You Want To Leave ? You Could Live Out Your Days Peacefully Here. ”

“ W3LL WH4T'S THE US3 OF TH4T. L1V1NG HERE 1S SOOOO BOR1NG. IF 1 L34V3 W1TH YOU TWO, 1 C4N 3XP3R13NC3 3V3N MOR3 FUN TH3N JUST ST4Y1NG H3R3 1N TH1S BOR1NG OLD DUMP. 1 COULD GO ON 4DV3NTUR3S AND QU3STS ! HUNT 4N1MAL 4ND K1LL B34STS ! ” She smiles with a toothy grin.

Kanaya closes the door before anyone you heard that.

“ Terezi, Could You Please Keep It Down. We Wouldn't Want Anyone else Finding Out About Our Plans. ”

“ Also if You want to join us, please keep your mouth closed. ”

“ W3LL, DUHH 1 WILL. PLUS 1 C4N G3T US OUTT4 H3R3. 1 GOT SOMEON3 WHO C4N SN34K US OUT OF H3R3. >:] ”

“ You do ? That's great. It'll be good to have assistance  to escape this kingdom. ” Well this ain't that bad, I think.

 

 

Be the blind seer apprentice at the present.

 

You are Terezi Pyrope at the moment. You are a seer's apprentice just like your colleague, Rose Lalonde.

You first met her when she came to Prospit due to her seer gift.You two tolerate each other's existence. She even helped you with a prank once which got her on your good side.

You've always wanted to be a knight like your sister and your best friend, Karkat. But when your abilities came in, you had to be a seer and study to be one.

Today's the day, the day we get out of this boring old dump and finally be free.

After attending the classes, you go to the academy's gates to meet a friend of yours during lunch hours.

You see her chatting with on of the guards patrolling the entrance.

 

“ Oh, come on. Gimme me a 8reak here, I've got someone to see and it's reaaaaaaaalllllllly important. Oh, there she is coming here now. ”

“ BOYS, SH3 41NT 4 THR34T. YOU TWO M4Y GO ON YOUR BR34K. L34V3 US B3, YOU TWO. ”

They nod and leave . 

“ Toodalo, 8itches. Well I didn't know you could do that. ”

“ :::::::) ”

“ W3LL, ITS 4 LONG STORY SO YOUV3 GOT THE GOODS ?? ”

“ Duh, of course. Can't let you escape here without my assistance 8ut my help 8n't for free, you know. ”

“ ::::;) ”

“Y34 Y34, H3R3S TH3 C4SH NOW H4ND M3 TH3 GOODS.  ”

You pay her some of your allowance and she hands you the bag of essential supplies.

“ Good luck, I'll be w8ting for you 8y the wall. ”

She leaves. You get back into the academy hiding the items under your robes. You attend the rest of the lessons for the day.

 

Evening comes.

 

You meet up with Rose and Kanaya Maryam, a royal seamstress of the castle. She tends to visit the academy to help sew up our torn robes from time to time.

You bring along the goods for your escape. You open up the bag to find some sturdy rope, two guard disguises, three cloak hoods and magic scrolls including the bag itself.

 

“ YOU TWO GOT YOUR B3LONG1NGS ?”

“ Yes, We Have. Have You Gotten Brought Along What Is Needed ? ”

“ I'V3 GOT BOTH THE SUPPL13S 5ND MY STUFF. NOW, YOU TWO R3M3MB3R TH3 PL4N ?? ”

“ We do, now shall we commence. ”

You nod. You put your belongings into the bag. Rose puts her satchel into the bag as well. Kanaya holds into it.

You and Rose change into the disguises and hide your robes in the bag.

Rose holds the scroll points her wand at you and recites the scroll.

“ { Ambobus placitum eandem formas in Regno praesidia auream } ”

Magic swirls all around the both of you. You both look like guards of the academy.

Kanaya puts on a cloak.

“ Wow, You Both Really Convincing. ”

“ 1 KNOW R1GHT. WOW, W3 SOUND L1K3 GU4RDS 4S W3LL. H3H3, 4W3SOM3. ”

“ I must agree, we do sound quite similar but the spell will only last so long. So we need to hurry up. ”

You nod and put on the helmet. Kanaya puts on the bag and you two pretend to be guards escorting her.

You stay quiet as you escort her. You reach the gates. 

“ What is th€ purpos€ of you b€ing h€r, lady Kanaya ¿ ”

“ There is No Need For Worry, They Are Just Accompanying Me Home. There Have Been Quite A Few Robberies Lately. ”

She smiles hiding her unease.

They inspect both you and Rose. You stay as still as possible and try not to blurt out anything. 

“ whAt's in the bAg my lAdy ? ”

“ Just Some Robes To Bring Home To Patch Up ”

They look at each other the stand back.

“ you mAy pAss, lAdy KAnAyA. ”

You both go along with her. 

One of the guards stop you. 

“ Wait you look v€rry familiar.  Wait I r€m€mb€r you.”

“ YOU DO ??  ” You gulp.

“ Ar€n't you that guard who mad€ a m€ss in the cant€€n once ¿ ”

“ OH YEAH, HEHE I'M THEM. ”

“ d4mn, i remember th4t it was such 4 mess but i h4d quite 4 l4ugh i forgot 4bout everything else.  ”

“ Y€ah, I know right it was ridiculous. R€m€mb€ring it mak€s m€ so giddy. ”

“ s4me here. ”

They start chatting as you sneak away.

“ Phew that was way to close. ”

“ I Would Agree. Terezi, Where Did You Say Your Friend Will Meet Us ? ”

“ BY TH3 FRONT W4LLS OF TH3 K1NGDOM. ”

You hurry to the wall and standing there is Vriska Serket, the sister of the missing Aranea Serket and the lady who'll get us outta here.

Kanaya looks at her and snarls.

 

 

Be Kanaya Maryam at the moment.

 

You are Kanaya Maryam and right in front of you is your ex lover, Vriska Serket. 

Rose goes forwards and speak to Vriska

You stay quiet. You lean towards Terezi and whisper,

“ Why Is She Here ? ”

“ SH3'S ON33 OF TH3 ONLY P3OPL3 WHO'S SNUCK OUT OF H3R3 B3FOR3 4ND M4N4G3D TO COME B4CK 4S W3LL. ”

She's whispers back.

“ Well, Why Can't We Ask Someone Else, Please ? ”

“ VR1SK4 1S ON3 OF TH3 B3ST 4ND 1S V3RY 3XP3R13NC3D PLUS SH3'S SNUCK M4NY P3OPL3 OUT OF H3R3 MULT1PL3 T1M3S. WHY, WH4T'S WRONG W1TH VR1SK4 ?? >:? ”

“ Well, Terezi If You Must Know. Vriska And I Have And Uneasy History With Each Other. ”

“ W41T 4 M1NUT3 1S SH3 YOUR 3X MMMHHPHHMM.... ”

Rose and Vriska look at you. 

“ Are you doing well, lady I mean Kanaya ? ”

“ W8t, Kanaya ? Oh ho ho ho, it has 8een a long time, Kanaya Maryam. ”

“ :::::;;) ”

“ Yes, It Has Been Quite A Time Since We Have Seen Each Other Last. ”

“ Kanaya, you know each other ? ”

“ Well, Long Story Short. She's My Ex. ”

“ Wait, you dated her. I what, when, how and just why ?!? ”

“ Yes Yes, I Know I Dated An Outlaw But She Didn't Used To Be One. Right Now That Doesn't Matter, We Need To Escape from Here. Now Vriska Do You Know How To Help Us Or Not ?  ”

“ Well off course, that's why I'm here. Now, you all follow me I'll get us outta here. Come on quickly. ::::::) ”

You follow though you're still suspicious of her. It's been a while since you saw her. 

You remember when you saw her last. It was her mother's funeral. The great sea general, Marquise Spinneret Mindfang had passed away during a crusade out far from Prospit's seas seeking treasure. Her sister, Aranea was scarred quite badly from her death. Vriska suffered worse. This was while you two were a couple, Vriska had shut you out after the funeral. Days later, she ran away and had left letters addressed to her sister and you.

She Had Ran Away Not Wanting To Face What Happened.

The letter addressed to you was a break up letter. She never did liked you or even really loved you at all, she had just dated you just for the fun of it. Reading that letter made you despise her for playing with your heart for so long. You promised to yourself if you ever seen her again you wouldn't forgive her for what she'd done. 

But Now She Is Here, Should You Make Her Suffer For What She Did. You Don't Really Know Anymore. That Relationship Ended 3 Years Ago. Furthermore, She's Helping You Get Out Of Here. 

“ Kanaya. ”

“ Kanaaaaaaaaya ! ”

“ K4N4Y4 !!! ”

“ KAN4YAAAAAAAA !! ”

You look at all three of them staring at you.

“ Kanaya, would please you get down. ” Rose says.

“ Oh Yes, Of Course. ” You get off the wall using the rope provided. 

You land on the ground outside the kingdom. 

You look at the ground and all around you. Wow, Its Been So Long Since You Were Out Here. You've Spent So Much Time In The Castle You've Forgotten The Smell Of Grass, The Wind Blowing Through Your Hair, Leaves Falling All Around You. This Feels Nice, It Feels Familiar Somehow.

You are handed your items as Rose gets hers. You brought along your lipstick which had been enchanted with the ability to turn into a saw, some sewing supplies, money, some packages food and bottles water.

“ Well Thank You, Vriska For Helping Us Out. ”

“ Yes, thank you. Let's go, Terezi. ”

“ W8t a minute, stop right there. ”

Vriska shouts as you and Rose walk away

“ What Is It Now ? ”

“ Didn't you tell them, Terezi ? ”

“ Tell us what ? Terezi what did you leave out ? ”

“ W3LL ON3 OF TH3 COND1T1ONS OF H3R SUPPLY1NG 1S W1TH TH3 M4T3R14LS 4ND G3TT1NG US OUT W4S UHM W3LL....  ”

“ I'm coming along with your little charade. ::::::::) ”

“ What ! ” You both exclaim.

“ 8e happy that my schedule is empty for me to even come along with you all. ”

“ Well, I don't care about whatever nonsense you have. We need to be going off now to search for my sister or we'll be caught. Now, let's depart. ”

We go off into the enchanted forest beyond the kingdom.
