Abstract Nonsense

Abstract Nonsense

Blackouts aren't too uncommon. But when you start waking up from blackouts and seeing that the world keeps changing, what do you do?

1,057 readers have visited Abstract Nonsense since DeathScythe386 created it.

Introduction

"It's dark..."

Image


Blackouts aren't too uncommon, especially to those who spend their lives drinking in the streets. It's also not very uncommon if you're someone who gets robbed often, that is, if you have anything left. But there are special cases. There are people who have suffered injuries. Physical and mental injuries. Some have brain trauma, which makes them black out at random moments. Now usually, that person would awaken after a few minutes or hours and still see everything as normal, right? They're both right and wrong. Again, there are always...special cases.

Image


Such as a certain someone from an academy. An academy called Gerhilde Academy. Gerhilde Academy isn't exactly that famous or anything, but it is notorious. There are rumored cases of teachers who deliberately fail their students and the students have to do something for them to pass, many students have been committing suicide or being attacked...it had given Gerhilde a notorious aura. The academy is still running to this day, but is mostly used as a place for students who didn't make it to the top ranks or failed their entrance exams at other, much more popular and lively schools.




"Everything's...changed..."


Image

There are some people who don't awaken seeing things normally. For example...I know of a boy. He had suffered brain trauma in the past. Now, at random moments, he blacks out. Except he doesn't awaken normally...whenever he wakes up, he sees that the world had...changed. At least in his view. It differs everytime he blacks out- Sometimes, he awakens seeing a castle, sometimes a barren wasteland, and sometimes, the whole place is monster-infested. Even the humans he sees change. But there is always one person who he still sees normally- they appear to him as a normal human when the whole place is, for example, infested with monsters. Soon he began to get used to all of this- albeit slightly paranoid, he had somewhat grown used to blacking out and then reawakening in something that's completely new. Sure, sometimes he has to grope around because the terrain is not familiar but, the person who is with him still sees things normally and can lead him around. Life progressed- Until it came.




"You're not real..."


Image

Something, or someone has been causing disturbances in the terrain he sees. Someone who's not real in that terrain. Maybe it's someone who's not supposed to be there- perhaps someone who was absent that school day?- but is there. That person is not real. But the question is, who is the one making the unreal person appear to him? It couldn't have been his brain trauma. Only the appearances changed. And for him to get things to go back to normal, he and the person who was with him must dispel the unreal person in that terrain.




Image


This is where you play in. Are you the one who joins him on his travails through an unknown terrain? Are you perhaps just one of the bystanders, watching the two move around with him looking as if he hadn't seen all of you before? Or perhaps...you're the one who doesn't exist?

Ayame got up a little later than normal. As she glanced at the alarm clock by the bedside table, she realized that she had gotten up a full thirty minutes later than normal.
"Huh? That's strange..." She recounted in her head what activities she's done last night that made her stay up. So far, she could only recall one.
"The interrogation took a little longer than I thought. Should I just stay in for the day--" She muttered as she checked to see if she could still make it. It was almost 30 minutes before the opening ceremonies.
"Let's just hope I get lucky with the train today..."

By sheer force of will and skipping breakfast, Ayame managed to make it with five minutes to spare. She ran across the halls until she arrived at their designated classroom. Upon entering, most of the people were already there so she came in through the back door, to avoid drawing unnecessary attention. Taking her spot near the windowsill, she sat down to catch her breath, observing everyone inside. Her eyes were drawn to an empty seat, just four more spaces ahead of her.
"Seems she's not around yet..."

From the school rooftop, another student observed the bustling grounds from below. She stood just outside the protective fence built around the place, her feet dangling just a few millimeters from the concrete floor. She looked straight down, her mind filled with questions by which there were no easy answers.
"Tell me, what draws them in to do these things? Does it differ when it comes to me? I, who also stands in this threshold between life and death? Won't you tip your hand a little bit more?" She asked in her mind, as if the whole place would suddenly respond with a clear answer to a question they didn't even hear.
"I suppose. Maybe it isn't you who's the problem. Maybe--" She merely nodded and smiled as she retreated back in the safe confines of the fence, lest the roaming guards notice her and assume she was another one of those "jumpers".
"Oh! Class is starting soon..."

Reagan sat at her desk, quietly reading a book with her feet propped up. She was clad in a pair of cargo pants and a hoodie, and a single earbud hung in her ear. Her iPod was going through every ACDC song she had at a loud volume, but not loud enough to attract the attention of her classmates. From time to time she would tentatively glance at her classmates, noting various friends and where they sat. She should really go and speak to them, but she was feeling anti social this particular morning. Reagan was more than happy with her novel and her rock music.

Gordion was also at his desk and reading, although he was not listening to music, or looking for his friends. He only had one, and he knew where she was sitting. A single hand played with his green hair while the other flipped through his pages.

Re: Abstract Nonsense

We're taking a while so, if nobody minds, I'm taking the starting post~

Re: Abstract Nonsense

Okay so I guess we have enough characters and sorry for the delay because I was finicky about the site suddenly dying on me again, so I guess we can start. I'll get the starting post up later.

Re: Abstract Nonsense

Yo! Can I make another character?

UPDATE: Finished her already though, I think I'll be making some changes to her history and personality later on. Feeling a little sleepy as I was making her so, some parts are a little rough on the edges.

Re: Abstract Nonsense

@Saya Accepted. Alright, I'll note the activity drop down.

@maccotango Updated the introduction, your reservation's there. (And the Neru songs were a coincidence. I didn't notice it until I decided to listen to all three again and finally realized. XD)

Re: Abstract Nonsense

Finally finished my character. If there are any problems with her, let me know immediately. Oh, and a heads up. Due to my schedule, expect activity drop during Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Re: Abstract Nonsense

Hello, I'd like to reserve someone if that's alright? c: I'll have him up within the time limit~

(psst A+ on the fact you used neru songs. lost one's weeping has always been my jam. /dances)

Re: Abstract Nonsense

@Saya Oh, you made it. Well, I'm working on my own so this reply is a tad bit late, but on your question, when he figures out who the unreal person is, he just has to dispel- read: kill- the unreal person. The unreal person is an illusion, like a ghost of the person who's not there. He blacks out again, only to awaken seeing things normally. But this is just a temporary fix, and there's a more permanent fix. The permanent fix is...well, we'll get to that when the RP progresses.

Re: Abstract Nonsense

I'd like to reserve someone as well. I'll have her/him up around, two days I think? after this post. Maybe earlier if I'm lucky.

I don't really get the whole unreal part but, I think--Whenever the boy blacks out and the world changes, only two people remain awake with him. One of those isn't real and the thing is, he has to figure out which one of those two is the unreal person? If he does figure it out--what happens next? Correct me if I'm wrong though.

Re: Abstract Nonsense

Oh that makes a lot of sense omg! Sorry I'm stupid ^^;
Actually I'd like to make two characters!

Re: Abstract Nonsense

@sadginger The unreal people only appear on certain instances, and only when the boy has a blackout, so I'll just reserve you as one of the students. For an example on the unreal people, well...
For example, Person A was absent that school day. When the Boy blacks out, and he wakes up in a different terrain, he can see two people that haven't been changed by the terrain. One of them is real, and the other is not. One of those two people is Person A and since they were absent that day, they are the unreal person. Hope it made sense.

I'd like to reserve an unreal person!
