A black Rose with white

Chapter Text

It is cold. There is lava right next to him yet it is still cold. Tommy has been stuck in prison with Dream for about 3 days now. There is only one way for the teen to get out of prison and that is that Sam would get him out.


But Tommy stopped hoping that Sam would come and get him. The one time Tommy finally decides to trust someone. The one time Tommy thinks things could be ok that he could finally have a father figure and that bitch locks him up with his abuser. Sure Tommy didn't tell anyone exaclly what Dream did but it is know that Dream isn't really someone you wanna be fucking locked up with.


Tommy only came to this damn prison to get closure. It was something Puffy said he should try saying that seeing Dream locked up and shit could help like knowing that this green teletubby can't hurt him anymore but no he gets stuck with Dream where he sure as hell can hurt him and no one could do anything. What great closure.


Tommy doesn't know how long he is supossed to be stuck in this prison but he doesn't want to find out. Honestly Tommy would aprefer if Dream just took his last life so he could finally rest but that seems to be way to nice for Dream after all this is basically just exile all over again and back than Dream didn't kill Tommy either but instead tortured and manipulated him.


This is bound to go wrong in some way and it will.


Luckily there is a clock in this cell otherwise Tommy wouldn't know the time and his inner clock is already fucked enough. It was night time now. The raw potatos were send down by some weird automatic machine a while ago but neither of the two made a move to get one. They just stared at each other.

„Don't you want to get some food?" Dream asked while finally standing up to get a potato. It kinda surprised Tommy that Dream talked because ever since the two got stuck with each other nobody said a word.


Well in exile Tommy probably would have said nothing since he didn't want to make Dream mad and get hurt but right now Tommy couldn't care less about his health or if he dies. All Tommy wants is that Dream sees is that he isn't some dumb puppet anymore.


„Fuck off" Tommy says. Dream moved his head a bit to the side. His now damaged mask looks even creepier than it did in Exile and it sends shivers down Tommy's spine.


„I thougt I teached you better" Dream speaks with disappointment. It made Tommy feel like he should apolagize but he doesn't want to give Dream that satisfaction. So instead he keeps quiet and just sticks his tongue out. It may be childish but Tommy doesn't think that if he starts talking he can get anything else than apologis out. That obvouisly was not the answer Dream wanted.


„I guess I have to teach you another lesson" Was everything Dream said before Tommy felt pain. Dream pins Tommy down on the cold prison floor and repeatedly hits him with a potato. Tommy trys to fight back and get Dream off him but to no use. It didn't take long untill Tommy gave up.


After what felt like eternally Dream finally stopped. He slowly got off Tommy and threw the potato on the floor next to a chest. „Don't forget Tommy this is your own fault." Dream says his voice cold and not leaking any emotins.

Not long after that Tommy passed out from the pain and only 1 minute later the message 'Tommyinnit was slained by Dream' on everyones communicator. Tommy finally lost his last canon life. He would be send to limbo and could finally see Wilbur or that's what he thought would happen. Instead Tommy woke up in prison.


There are a few things wrong tho. First off all Tommy feels no pain. He knows he should but he doesn't. Then there was also the fact that Tommy doesn't feel the cold obsidian floor. Tommy looks down and realizes he is floating over the ground and he is transparent.


It looks like he is a ghost. Tommy may not know a lot about Limbo, ghost and all but he is sure that this is not what limbo looks like. Besides he still remembers everything happy and sad memories unlike Ghostbur who can only rememeber happy things.


When Tommy looks to his right he sees Dream laughing. That bitch just killed him and the first fucking thing he does is laugh. „Hello you must be Tommy's Ghost" Dream says his voice sounds oddly cheerfull. Tommy doesn't answer.


Instead he flies to the wall that is the furthes away from Dream and tries to go trough it just like Ghostbur always did but nothing. He tries again but nothing would happen he was still inside the prison.


Tommy spins around now facing Dream who just looks at him with what looks like amusement. It was hard to tell trough his mask but Tommy learned a few things about Dream in Exil. Tommy doesn't want to live but being dead and stuck in prision with Dream isn't really any better than being alive and stuck in prison with Dream.


„Well I guess it is time to bring you back" Dream suddenly speaks and now it is very obvouis that Dream is amused by this situation. Tho Tommy doesn't get what he means by 'time to get him back'. Dream pulls a book out of his inventory it is named 'Revive book'.


And it was in that moment that Tommy realized what exactly Dream was planning to do. He was going to revive Tommy. So far there were only rumors that Dream has the Revive book. Hell the Revivie book itself was only a rumor. Now Tommy is sure that both are true and apperantly Dream killed him just to test that damn book out.


Tommy may be dumb, childish and shit but he isn't an idiot anymore and he knows no one on this server who lost all his 3 canon lives and suddendly was back so Dream never used the book before and Tommy is pretty sure that Dream just waited for a reason to kill Tommy.


Tommy had to die for Dreams sick game and he played right into his hand. Dream walks over to Tommy's dead body and opens a page on the book he starts to read something out loud. To Tommy it only sounded like gibberish but if the green glowing mist that suddendly appeard is anything to go by he was saying words in probably a death language.


After about 1 minute Dream seemed to almost be done and the green mist was now completely around Tommy's corpse and everything Tommy's ghost could do is watch. It seemed to go pretty good and you could basically hear Dreams smile under his mask when suddendly he pronuced a word wrong.


Dream didn't notice at first but when he did he trys to say it right but it was apparently too late since the once green mist turned gold in a matter of seconds. It was then that Dream stopped talking and backed up against the wall behind him and Tommy started to panic. Neither of the 2 knows what the fuck was going to happen and honestly Tommy doesn't want to find out.


Tommy starts to feel lightheaded and before he knows it he passes out again. When he opens his eyes he isn't in prison anymore and Dream is no where to be seen instead Tommy is in some random alleway with no wounds. It is like he didn't just got beaten to death by a fucking potato.

Chapter Text

When Tommy turned around he realized that the golden glow is still surrounding him but fading rather quickly. If Tommy had to guess he would say that he is here where ever here is because of that weird glowing mist.

It also seems that Tommy is alive so the revival must have worked even if Dream messed up. There must have gone something wrong tho since the mist changed color and Dream started to panic. And that something is probably the fact that Tommy suddendly is ins ome weird alleyway he never seen before prime knows where. It also looks like he isn't on the Dream smp anymore.

Tommy decides that it is probably good to explore this place so he could figure out where he is and sitting on an alleyway floor is probably not the smartest thing either. As soon as Tommy stands he notices some other things that changed.

Tommy wears different clothes. That again is something Tommy can't explain. It is also probably the fault of that spell Dream said but why would it change Tommy's clothes. He now wears a white button down and a red sweather on top. It doesn't look too bad but it only gives Tommy more questions.

Tommy walks out of the alleyway and sees that he is a city. There are a lot of people and it kinda reminds Tommy of Hypixel. It is different tho. There are also cars and many buildings. No one here looks insane or like they are planning a murder. It is a nice change but a bit weird.

Tommy started to walk in a random direction. He isn't sure where he is walking he just wants to get away from that alleyway. In this city are many things Tommy has never seen before. This place looks nothing like the Dream smp.

After a while Tommy arrived by some building that looks like an apartment. Tommy walks inside and sees that he is right. It doesn't look very good but it could have been worse.

There was a woman at the resaption. She has shoulder long hair and looks like she wants to be anywhere but here. There were a few keys behind her obvouisly for the rooms. She finally notices Tommy and quickly puts on a smile that doesn't reach her eyes. „Hello sir, how can I help you?" That women that according to her name tag is called Clamintine ask.

Tommy walks over to her. „I would like to rent an apartment" Tommy answers. He doesn't have anywhere to stay and isn't planning to go back to the Dream smp. After all he is finally away from that hell he isn't about to go back. „Of course I need you to sign some papers wait a second please" Clemantine says. She reaches under her desk and takes out a clipboard with a few papers on it.

She gives them to Tommy including an pen. There aren't too many papers so Tommy decides to look over them quickly. The information on there isn't really good for Tommy. Apperantly an apartment cost money something that didn't exist on the Smp. He isn't sure where he gets money before the end of the month out of no where but he hopefully figures something out or he is fucked.

Also in the papers it says that someone has to be atleast 18 to rent an apartment which Tommy obvouisly isn't. But it seems like Clemantine doesn't acctually care about his age so that is one problem less.

Besides Tommy doesn't really care if he gets an apartment legal or not he already commited crimes like arson, thievery, attemted murder and other shit. Getting an apartment underage is his last concern so Tommy signs the letters. Clemantine gives him the keys to his apartment which is number 69.

When Tommy arrives he notices the apartment is in a worse condition than he thought but he can manage. There are 4 rooms. A living room, a kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom. That is more than enough for Tommy after all he used to live in a dirt shack his standarts aren't very high.

Tommy decides to look trough all rooms and notices that the person who was here before Tommy left somethings behind thank fuck. It looks like they were in a hurry when they left or were just really forgetfull, doesn't matter. There is a bit food in the frigde and 3 plates and 1 cup in a cardboard. There are a few clothes in the wardrobe which look like they are a bit too big for Tommy but it is better than wearing the same outfit the whole time.

It doesn't take long until Tommy goes to the bathroom. There isn't much just 2 towels, some trash and a scissor but the water is working normal which is good. Tommy just finished testing the water at the sink and is about to leave the bathroom when he notices his reflection.

Some of Tommy's bigger scars are gone atleast the ones that were on his face the others are all still there. But the thing that really makes Tommy panic is the white streak in his hair. Tommy is sure that he didn't have a fucking white streak before. He knows it is probably a side effect of this whole situiton just like everything else but it is still unsettling. It is hard to explain but the streak somehow makes him feel uneasy.

It is a bit like the panic and pain Tommy felt is in that dumb streak but Tommy was probably just going insane. Tho it could have something to do with his revivale in that case as stupid as it sound would make sence or not. Honestly at the moment nothing is making sence. Still Tommy doesn't like that streak so he decides to cut it out. It works semi ok. It doesn't look too bad but a bit weird.

Tommy throws it into the bin and checks one last time if all the white is gone. Now that that is done Tommy has to figure out how to get money. He leaves his apartment and starts to search. There isn't much he knows about money but what Tommy does know is that you have to get a job which could be rather difficult for Tommy considering he is sure you have to be 18 aswell to get a job but again he can just say he is 18 if someone wants to know.

So Tommy asks a few people if he could work for them so far everyone said no but he doesn't give up.

It is like faith hates Tommy. There is so much that went wrong in the last 24 hours and all he wants to do is curl up and sleep or cry but Tommy also knows that he won't be able to sleep. There is also the fact that Tommy really needs to find a job.
