Survive The Dream

Introduction

Our dreams are alive

Have you ever wondered what ever happened to those imaginary friends you used to have. Or where those sweet little dreams you used to have disappeared to? They're still in your mind, of course, but locked away deep. At least, that's what you thought. One day, you decided to go for a walk to the park. A park completely surrounded by bush. One with pathways that lead here there and everywhere. But one day, you decide to go on a different path. You decided to make your own. Of course, everybody gets these ideas. Little do they realise, that these paths can lead you to your worst nightmare, or your best dreams and hopes.

Along this path, without realising, you've passed through a portal, one that transports you to another universe. That universe, is where everything is recorded. Some people may call it a portal into your mind, your world, your imagination. It is a portal in the land of Istalin, where all of your hopes, your dreams, and of course, your nightmares live. Fascinating, is it not?

Wrong! Lately, more and more people are having nightmares. These nightmares, they're now filling Istalin with terror. Now that you're here, in this world, you must survive your own fears and fulfill your true dreams, they will lead you home. You may pretend to be perfect, but we all know that is not true. Everyone is imperfect, is that your fear? Perhaps, perhaps not. But in anyone's case. you must survive this world and find your way home.

"But wait, there's more!" the blonde called, swinging from one branch to the next, almost slipping multiple times. "Life is but a dream! And all dreams are real. But nothing is real! Because they're all dreams! Nothing we know is set in stone and therefore, it is just imagination that we live in. There's really no difference between real life and the world of imagination." Karma blink, finally stopping. She was silent a moment, hanging from the branch like a sloth. "I hate dreaming!" she called suddenly, falling from the branch and landing gracefully onto a rock, one that just so happened to be positioned in the middle of a river. "It takes all we believe is real and twists it into a nightmare for all! That's why I love them!"

Vrarin yawned, leaning back against a large tree. It wasn't an ordinary tree, in fact, it grew up side down. And then to the left. And then to the right. And of course, it finally went up, much like a large chair. He sat back, staring up at the open pink and purple skies above him and watching the flying antelope make their way to candy cane mountain. Yes, these places literally do exist. Anything some child, or even adult, has dreamt about, exists in this world.

Tilly

I thought I saw the path a moment ago, Yorkie thought to herself. She blundered through path after path, becoming more scared every second. She clutched the plastic bag to her chest, gripping the egg box tightly between her fingers. She stumbled a little, before coming to an open space. Across from her a river flowed, and in the middle of the river stood a pretty blonde girl she'd never seen before. Walking forwards on shaking legs, Tilly chewed her top lip. "Hello? C-Can you help me? I'm lost and I have to get home! I-I gotta give mum her eggs for our breakfast," she murmured, showing her the egg box. "I- I don't know where I am."

Karma threw her arms into the air, raising her voice a bit and looking as if she was about to take a step into the rushing river. "But nothing is right, yet everything is right. Oh is there no wa- hunh?" she clapped her hands above her head and glanced across the river, at the other girl. Her hair fell into her face, covering her left eye. "Home..." she whispered, frowning. "I don't remember that word... What does it mean?" she asked softly, jumping from rock to rock until she reached the edge.

Confused for a second, she frowned. "Home. Y-You know, the house. Uh, with the toilet and beds and a kitchen? Where you live." She glanced down at her eggs, before walking closer to Karma. "Can you tell me where I am? I forgot to go the normal way home because there were some mean looking tough boys and they had boy germs. I didn't wanna go near 'em so I chose a different way home, thinking I could cut through the trees to get back to my pathway, but then I kept walking and there were just more and more trees." She looked around for a second, before coming to look at Karma yet again. "And this isn't the way home. Do you know where a phone is?"

"Home... Phone... They sound so similar they could rhyme..." Karma whispered, swaying and taking a step back. She seemed unsteady, but in truth, she was just deep in thought. "Yes... i recall such word. But their meanings... I do not knwo their meanings." she turned suddenly, striding over to Tilly. "Tell me, please," she whispered, tilting her head to the side, her wild hair almost touching the ground. "What do these words mean? Home, phone.... Germs... What is normal? Is there really such a thing as normal? I've heard of it, yes... But I cannot recall its meaning..." Karmen scowled, turning away quickly. "How is this? I cannot remember! But why? This is not right!" She cried out, pausing. "Or is it? Maybe it's wrong? I don't know..." her voice had returned to its normal pitch as she spoke those last few sentences, completely forgetting that Tilly was there.

Jessie wandered down the road, somewhat admiring the view of that weird candy mountain she'd actually never been to. While wondering what it would be like, she almost bumped into a scared and confused girl holding eggs, talking to a blonde woman. She muttered, hoping no-one had noticed her and backed away. She glanced at them all, not considering them any sort of nightmare or bad people, they didn't seem particularly crazy. A fleeting thought of introducing herself passed when she looked back to the candy mountain. She began to sing Metallica's 'Whiskey In The Jar' very quietly as she passed them and headed towards her goal. She did notice a man sitting on a tree that seemed bent, but he seemed quite hostile as he wasn't joining the other's conversation.

Saiko had walked through the trees, a gash had already formed at the side of her head.
"Saiko will find cloth somewhere. A person dreams up new things so Saiko might find a new friend."
Sure enough, Saiko came face to face with a standing stuffed frog. It offered a blue ribbon to cover up the wound.
"Pretty... Saiko thanks the froggie. Which dream did he come from?"
The frog didn't answer. His mouth was stitched shut. Saiko took the ribbon and tied it around her head to stop the bleeding.
"Would the froggie like to come with Saiko? Saiko hasn't had a friend in ten years, so Saiko would be really happy if the froggie said yes."
The frog said nothing but jumped in Saiko's arms.
"Yay! Saiko is so happy~ Saiko is Saiko."
As Saiko talked to her silent companion, she noticed that four people were conversing near a tree. The one man seemed extremely familiar and he was also the one not talking. Saiko decided to sit on the other side of the tree.
"Saiko has seen the man before. What is the man's name?"

Tilly

Image

Confused and afriad, she clutched the carton tighter. She glanced over as someone passed. "E'scuse me!" she called, reaching out for their arm. "Miss? I think she hit her head. I'm scared, can you help?" she asked timidly. She showed her the eggs, removing the box from the little white plastic bag. "I need to get these home. I need to have breakfast with mum so I can go to school. C-Can you tell me where I am?"
She was becoming a shaking mess, stumbling as she tried to follow. She was torn. Who should she follow? She decided to stay put. Seating herself at the edge of the river, she pulled her Chuppu-chup from the bag, popping it into her mouth after removing the wrapper. The sweet made her feel better, so she watched the blonde for a second. "What's your name, miss?" she asked Karmen, rolling up her jean legs and removing her thongs to dip her toes in the water.
She paused for a moment though, when she realised what'd happened to her legs. They'd morphed together into a long tail, and up to her lower torso was now covered in scales. Not to mention the tail had ripped the crap out of her shorts. "Oh. I get it now. I'm dreaming." She slipped into the water completely, flipping the fluke of her tail a little. "So that means I'm not actually lost! Hooray!"

The blonde girl continued to converse with her self for a few moments, hardly paying attention to the others who had walked past. She smiled, turning to face Tilly. "My name... Yes, I know my name. It's... Uh, it's... Karma... Karmen!" she replied, happy that she could at least remember her name. She giggled, kneeling by the edge of the water and cupping some in her hands, staring at her reflection. "A dream... Yes, but no. In this dream I have lived for ten years," she whispered. Her smiled fade as the last of the water trickled out of her hands and back into the river. "What is you name, mermaid?"

Vrarin frowned, rubbing his temples. He seemed annoyed that the girls had found him, he was just trying to think. Ah, but what could he do about it. He didn't have the heart to tell them off. Standing, he turned, almost walking right into Saiko. "My name? ... My name is Vrarin," he told her, tilting his head when he heard a familiar tune. Smiling to himself, he repeated the name under his breath, unsure whether or not anyone would hear him.

Jessie has stopped in her tracks, somewhat hiding behind the nearby tree. She was never good at talking, and her imaginary "social skills" had ever since degraded since she had been put here. Her attention, however, was dragged to the girl whose legs had turned into a fin. Huh. she thought to herself. Haven't seen that before. Intrigued but shy, she stood behind a tree and peeked her head out, daren't making her presence known. Her breathing slowed and she forced herself to keep completely silent.

"Vrarin..."
Saiko continued to stare at him.
"Saiko thinks that Vrarin's name is cool... Saiko's name is Saiko. Saiko's lived in Instalin for three years now. Vrarin must have lived here longer than Saiko."
Saiko was silent for a bit.
"Does Vrarin need to go somewhere? Could Saiko go with Vrarin if he does? Saiko is wandering aimlessly and she wants to feel like she matters again."
Saiko tilted her head as she waited for an answer.

Tilly

Paddling slowly over to the edge where Karmen squatted, she tilted her head. "Me? My name is Tilly. Most people call me Tills or Yorkie. I like either, so take your pick." She paused for a second, the tips of her fluke tracing circles in the water. "Years? But this is just a dream, how could you stay in here for years?"
She flipped her tail and dragged herself up onto the ground beside Karma. "Oopsie, fish out of water." The tail flopped helplessly for a while. "Oh, I need to dry off. But First I need clothes..."

As Tilly neared the blonde haired girl, she jumped back, landing on her bottom and smiling. "Tilly is better," she whispered after taking a long moment to think it over. She sighed softly, turning back to the mermaid girl and frowned. "It is but it isn't. This isn't a dream, but a world of dreams. All dreams that exist, all nightmares too, are apart of this world. Anything that you can imagine, is here. If you don't believe me, then go for a walk. however, you should watch your step," the girl whispered, staring into the water once more. She blinked, tilting her head, smiling suddenly. "as for clothes. If you just imagine them, you're sure to find them. If not, someone has dreamt of clothes before. Perhaps strange, bird like ones, like the flying antelope," she re[plied, pointing out the reflection in the water.

Vrarin smiled, shaking his head. "Well, I think Saiko is a lovely name," he replied, looking around. "I'm heading nowhere in particular, but if you wish to follow, then there is nothing stopping you." he told her, starting in the opposite direction of the candy mountain. He wasn't really one for sweets anyways. "Three years? ... I've been here for about four or five. I lost count many, many minutes ago. Besides, you can never be sure in this world."

Saiko nodded.
"Vrarin is right... Instalin is confusing and disorienting. Saiko is often worried about some of the nightmares that take place. But nightmares can be dreams for some. Saiko's been in bad encounters with nightmares."
Saiko shivered as she remembered. Then, the two came across a forest.
"Saiko sees a forest. There may be something to do there."

Vrarin nodded, crossing his arms behind his back. "Agreed," he murmured, slowing when a forest came into sight. :There most definitely is," he replied. "I call it a forest of nightmares, it's where most of the more deadly dreams can be found."

Jessica, sick of standing behind a tree and watching two people who had already lost their minds talk, took a deep breath and stepped out of hiding. She approached the two... ... women? Were they even women anymore? Did a mermaid class as a woman? She sighed, but coughed at an attempt to gain some sort of attention. "E-Erm... Hi..." She stuttered, attempting to introduce herself. "I'm.. um... Jessica... And... Well, to be honest, I know I could dream up a buddy, but I'd kind of like to.. w-well.." She cleared her throat again, not quite sure she was going about this the right way. "... I'd like to talk to.. you guys. I-If that's okay with you?" Jessie was sure she didn't sound half mad enough, but talking in it's self was something completely insane to her.

Smiling up at the girl, Tilly nodded. "Well, of course! I love making friends," she replied happily. Glancing over at her tail, she frowned and turned back to Karma. "Wait, so explain to me how this whole dreaming business is done. I've never been very Lucid before, at least not like this! Also how do I wake up?" She bit down on her bottom lip and raised her eyesbrows, tilting her head side to side at the same time as her fluke.

Karmen frowned, not used to seeing so many new people in this world. What, did they follow a rabbit to get here? She shook her head, not answering the girl's question. Besides, the two seemed content talking to themselves. She tilted her head to the side, allowing her hair to fall into the water. "If you want clothes, then you have to look," she whispered, seeming a bit frustrated that the girl didn't understand her. "As for waking up... You can't. You are not asleep. And trust me, when you do sleep, you don't dream here."

Jessie smiled a wide grin at Tilly's reply. The mermaid seemed more friendly than she had anticipated. However, the other girl didn't seem half as accepting of her intrusion. Jessie decided to sit beside Tilly, crossed legged. "You could find something really cool. Maybe a fairy costume or become a butterfly with wings." Jessie smiled at the thought. "Beautiful wings, massive. Could fly yourself up to Candy Mountain over there and feast on jelly babies and gummy bears for the rest of your life. Ooo, and ice cream!" Jessica beamed at Tilly, grinning from ear to ear.
