sleepbound.
A young child wakes up in their bed. For the five hundredth and thirty-three thousandth time (according to their sleep deprived count), they open their eyes, and stare at the same eggshell ceiling that they've stared at for fifteen years.

They wish that they didn't have to do this. Waking up means that they have to actually do something, and doing something is so overrated. They want to stay in bed and not do anything, just lay down and go back to sleep... but they know that, eventually, they have to get up, no matter how much they despise the concept.

Luckily for them, however, they can't get up without a name.

Time to name this tired kid.

RE: sleepbound.
> Mr. LetsMcFreakingLoseIt

Mr. LetsMcFreakingLoseIt stirs slightly in their sleep, almost as if to flip off whoever suggested such a ridiculous name. Who would name their child that? And why would there be a 'Mr.' on front if the named individual wasn't even married, let alone male? Ugh, no.

>Enter Name.

>Dani Ratree.

That's better.

>Be Dani.

You are now DANI RATREE, and - despite what someone may think after seeing you barely wake up - you are NOT a heavy sleeper. In fact, you are what's known as a COMPLETE MESS when it comes to sleep. It's a rare occasion for you to get a few minutes of rest... and one that was recently ruined by the intrusion of some know-it-all narrator. Isn't this just your luck? Regardless, you sit up in your bed and force yourself to think about who you are.

You are an avid reader of SCI-FI NOVELS, especially anything to deal with ALIENS. Not that you believe in them, of course! What? You? Believe in something that is so obviously fake? No... Never...

Ahem, well, aside from your definitely-not belief in definitely-not-real aliens, you have a love for DOGS, and have several plushies of them scattered around your room.You are a SKEPTIC and PESSIMIST for the most part - which leaves you feeling either slightly assured in your beliefs or pleasantly surprised when considering humanity as a whole. You have a deep love of the VIOLIN, finally, and used to play it for fun until your FATHER found out. After that, you took class after class, working tirelessly to become the great violinist you always 'wanted' to be.

But you don't really want to do that.

Not anymore.

You own a LAPTOP, and use an old messenger client to talk with your long distance friends. You use the handle assuredCynic to speak to your friends without the knowledge of your parent, mainly because the conversations you have can go from 0 to sixty real quick. Your typing style is very tired, almost as much as you are, and as such? you never go past lower case. you don't really have the energy too, not with all the stuff you've been up to.

Speaking of your friends, it looks like one of them is messaging you.

What do you do?

RE: sleepbound.
>Examine the dog plushies

Ah, the one thing that can get you out of bed! You make your way over to the pile of DOG PLUSHIES collected in the corner of your room, and pick out a speckled boy to hold close. You have named each and every one of them, although you - like everyone else - tend to get them confused. You know the one you're currently holding is named GERALD THE GERMAN SHEPARD. Or was it George? No, it was definitely Gerald. Only a fool would name a dog George.

And you are not a fool. A complete mess, perhaps, but NEVER a fool.

You pet Gerald's head and softly call him a good boy. You're sure that, if your plushies were to come alive through some strange shenanigan in space-time, he would thank you for it. You decide, through a very short thought process, to make sure to come back for Gerald if things ever go south. Which they won't. Because nothing will go south, right?

Right?

What do you do?

RE: sleepbound.

No use wasting time with Gerald anymore, you suppose. Then again, is time with that dog really time wasted? You don't think so. You think that time spent with that plushy is time well spent! Better spent than whatever you're going to do now, at least

You make your way to your LAPTOP and check the client. It appears that three of your ONLINE BUDDIES are online, but only one has a notification badge representing a sent message. It looks like the sender is... oh no.

This asshole.


You really don't want to deal with this guy. You know that you probably should, but when has that ever made you do something? (It's made you do things plenty of times, you're just too stubborn to admit it). It might make him feel a little validated if you talk to him about whatever he's screaming about this time, though. The quicker you get it over with, the quicker you can go back to sleep.

What do you do?

RE: sleepbound.
>Go Back to Sleep

You wish. You wish you could. You pray to a million gods that you don't believe in that somehow, somehow you can go back to sleep. Unfortunately, you're already awake, and thus, there is no hope for you going back to sleep now. As it is, you have no other choice than to respond to the stupid idiot currently crying your name.


You wonder why you're friends with that guy. Of course, it quickly hits you that you don't consider him to be your friend. He's from a server you were once a part of and, once you two clicked, you haven't been able to get him off your back. Nonetheless, you're kind of fond of him, in a strange way.

Along with him, you notice that tyrannicalTutor and tactfulGearbox are online. Maybe talking to one of them would shed light on the issue.

Or, better yet... opening a memo. Better to talk to several idiots at once than to waste time with all of them, right?

What do you do?
