I will protect you all if it kills me.


These blue things you're seeing are called Husks. They're dangerous, they're deadly, they have no emotion, no feeling and no individuality left.

If you're reading this message than you're probably a dreamer.

If you're not a fighter, run. If you are, don't feel any remorse when you defend yourselves. You're doing them a favor.

Okay so the animals stopped talking but that sound like when the tv is on a channel you don't subscribe to is happening all around us? What the HELL? I mean ,sure, white noise, but you can barely concentrate, especially the parts where the weird sound bits that are like some language start being something you identify.

It's not making the headache, which is going into day five now, any better, that's for sure.

((ooc: This is related to the current Mass Effect Prompt, anyone who wondered and a special direction I'm taking with Roy))

Tate:

Also, you don't deserve me being an ass to you because Ollie chose you as my replacement. My problems are with him, not you, and you have every right to be there and I acknowledge that. I just wish I knew why he was throwing me away again None of this is your fault, man, and I wish you a whole lot of luck. Ollie's weak spot is his left, so you probably want to focus on guarding the shit out of that if he doesn't give you something specific to do. I also don't know if you know much about archery or using it, but I've got a special trick arrow that connects with one that Ollie has. Since you're gonna be working with him. I'd like to give it to you.

I put on a ton of sunscreen and I still got sunburnt. Go figure.

Have the animals shut up yet? I haven't really been paying attention. Mostly I keep my headphones on so I don't have to put up with their singing or whatever.

It's so annoying.

There are new pictures of me modeling some of Peter's clothing in the newest magazine of.. whatever. I forget the name. Vogue maybe. I think I look amazing.

Who wants to take me to dinner? I need company.

Is it weird that I didn't throw a party or whatever for graduating high school? I just always figured it would, it wasn't really in question. And I start college in August, so it's not like I'm free from something. Just a little bit older now.

I'll probably feel differently when I graduate college, but for now, I'm just going to enjoy sleeping in from time to time while I still can.

Is it common to start getting migraines when you're a. a guy, and b. 20? I've never had this happen before and I'm confused. Also, what do you do when you appear to have been replaced by your family? I was dealing with it before but now I've gotten another new "sibling" and it feels like shit on top of everything else cause I have issues not being the only child, I guess. Advice on either topic?

Anyone other than me realize just how boring graduations actually are? It is just a bunch of people telling us over and over again today is the first day of the rest of our lives... What does that make tomorrow? The ending? They don't even give you a piece of paper saying you did it... I have to pick it up in a few weeks.

Now I can focus on my new movie auditions! It is time to move from the little screen to the big screen.

So then, today, Barton's dog told me that I "lack followthrough" when I shoot. If I'd wanted your opinion, Laika, I'd have asked you. Admittedly, I've learned a LOT of useful information about Barton that I now don't have to pump out of certain other people in his life. Admittedly, this was still in the vein of "my human's the best ever" but it was still kind of funny.

Any secrets? I can definitely ask her.

Oh and Margaux the Not Quite Dali Llama is speaking perfect Latin and Locksley told me that he thinks I need to get a better sex life so I'm "not so high strung all the damned time".

So there's that, I guess?

To the woman on here who asked if I were nesting yet? Guess what! I have cleaned every inch of my room from top to bottom, and the living room, and the kitchen! Even in the little creases of the tiling. How did I get so much energy and why must everything be spotless? And why did I organise the spice rack? I CANT EVEN COOK!

And I found out where all the left socks go. My sister has been protesting something fierce at me for all of it and insists I just lay down.

But I do it while she's at school. Mwahahaha. Wait oops.

I never expected to be so comfortable with a huge social network site like this. But most of you are so inviting it's nice. I already have friends. Oh and one more thing. Is there anyone looking for a photographer for any kind of event? I need to get a camera first, ugh

I'm looking to expand on my portfolio away from just flowers and activism. For the sake of having a job.

Is it just me or is relearning to do something almost harder than learning to do it in the first place? Since I got the okay to stop wearing the sling, I've been at the gym three times a week working on my upper body strength and it feels like my arm is useless, but I know I've just got to keep working on it. I mean, I haven't been able to do anything with my right arm for almost three months. I'm not expecting to be able to do handstands and flips and things right off the bat. It's only been two weeks that I've had use of my arm, so I know it'll take some time.

Question though, has anyone else just known how to fight because of their dreams? I was with Barbara the other day and someone tried stealing my bag and I pretty much took him down without even thinking about it. I've never hit anyone in my entire life and I wound up incapacitating this guy. Am I the only one or has this happened to anyone else?

It's a little worrying that the enemies in my dreams seem to be getting stronger and stronger. I know I die, but Is it all leading up to something?

It's hard to think of something stronger than this latest, who sealed us all away with barely any effort, but... there's something out there. I can sense it.

Yesterday I got a certain letter, from a certain college after the initial tests I took to see if they'd be interested even with my GED. As it turns out? I'M IN I'M IN I'M IN! I'M GOING TO CHAPMAN FOR INTEGRATED EDUCATION. I'm going to focus on community learning, I think, so that I can come back somewhere like the ranch, and really get the things done there that I'd like to help with.

I am so incredibly excited and it still doesn't seem real but even so. ROY HARPER IS GOING TO COLLEGE!!! I almost can't wait.

Hello, Valarnet. A friend recommended this place to me and I thought why not? My name's Match, and I'm a model and an aspiring writer. I've got one book out and hopefully will follow with more.

I'm starting classes at UoC: Irvine, this fall, and have lived around here most of my life. I just wanted to pop on, say hello, and see what sorts are hanging about on here.

I suppose it was inevitable, with how long I have lived in these parts. But today, waking up from a nap, I have the dubious honor of now being a Dreamer of the OC. The dreams are medieval in nature, pure fantasy and magic, and in them, I am a wizard, slowly growing in power and knowledge and trained in a school, a place called the Tower of High Sorcery.

It seems incredible, and somehow beyond all my dreams, that this has happened. My memories from these dreams seem so realistic, so vivid. I'm unsure whether to feel happy, or wary.

Game time! (blocked from non punctured House characters)


[info]imnosidekick
[info]valarnet
Hey Valarnet! It's time for one of the games I like to play best when people send me to their place to get some stuff. YOU are the contestants and tonight's lucky guest is Barton and I feel like Dr. House without the vicodin or cane. So like a snoopy asshole looking through somebody's stuff, mostly.

Anyway. Barton sent me over to pick up some stuff for him since he's not leaving Eowyn's side and I can't blame him. Mad as I am at him over the whole avoiding me once he got engaged stuff, I had a part in it too, Eowyn was never meant to get hurt and I need to get over it. Or get a better therapist for my abandonment issues.

Anyway. The game is called "What The Fuck Is ___ On" and involves me taking photos of people's stuff, posting them online and showing you them, getting them identified by the lovely audience. Without further ado, let's get started!

((Large, non cut images include: Clint's Hawkeye Helmet, A close up of a hollowed out dowel, a pile of bb's arranged in a star shape, the top of the fridge with pillows and a blanket tucked up there, a nest in the corner of the living room, filled with old tshirts, loose socks, and throw pillows AND, finally, a dried athelas plant))

...This last one. I'm not too sure what it is, but I am ASTOUNDED that Barton of all people's into getting stoned. Is this any good as far as buds go, and should I be swiping it, delivering it to him at the hospital to make him feel better, or smoking it myself before I'm out of here? Any thoughts?

Is it even legal to ground an eighteen year old who isn't your kid in the first place? Sure, I did something kind of stupid, but it isn't THAT stupid or dangerous. I mean, nobody would have found out if I hadn't left my phone behind. And why was he on my phone anyway?

Either way, it's back to filing jail for me. -_-

I hate all of this, and I want it to go away now. I don't want these dreams or these powers, and I sure as heck don't want to live in Orange County anymore. I can't even. . . there just aren't words for how upset I am right now, how sick I feel. That was the worst experience of my life, and I never want to have one that comes close to it again.

I beg all the teenagers and pretty much anyone else out there, do not try eyeballing vodka or any other alcohol. It can burn your corneas and cause blindness. I don't even understand how this became a thing. Who thought that pouring vodka in your eye was a good idea?

To all those who Dream:

Have any of you managed to work out if your dreams are truly you, or if the protagonist of your dreams is merely a figment of your memories, or imagination?

I had one where I harmed a child. Accidentally, but nonetheless, harmed a child. The idea is sickening, especially now that I have a daughter ... but it does help convince me that the man in my dreams was never truly me - that it's some fairytale me, some manifestation of insecurities and doubts.

What do you all think of your own dreams?

So why is it that when you finally call someone out on the fact that they've replaced you, when you've tried to avoid bringing up that fact for months now, that you're the one who ends up feeling shitty? I mean, Hell, it's not as if he doesn't have a RIGHT to have a romance and be happy. Hell *I* have one and I'm happy. I just...

It's... Just that I'm no longer any active part of the guy's life and he's stopped giving a shit about me and it HURTS and when I finally tell him how I feel, I'm the one who feels guilty about it?

I'm...confused. And NOT the one at fault.

So THAT was Budapest.

Also, wow. Does anybody else not have dreams for a while and then BOOM they're coming at you all at once. At least I see how I got possessed now, which wasn't a whole lot of fun to watch, and like I said last summer, some of you are now required to strike me down should I wind up susceptible to that kind of thing HERE. I mean I'm not gonna feel guilty over something Dream Clint did while he was possessed but I can make damn sure that should I get within a bright blue glowstick here, somebody's ready to go ahead and cut me down for my own good, you know?

Weird night. Really, REALLY weird night on top of a really weird day at competition and a weird morning of dismantling camp as well. Sorry, but it's weird to go from Middle Ages to Superhero back to Middle Ages to packing up your household's tents and equipment into your modern U-Haul.

My life is incredibly, incurably weird, but my kid, who isn't speaking to me now, don't ask me why, took first in both of his events so color me an incredibly proud coach right now. Sorry, about that Queen. Your kid's just better than you are this week. But hey, if you ever need a hand...

I am both nervous and excited about cameras taping Roy and myself for the television. I truly do not think my home life will be so interesting; any reason that people may find me interesting is because of my work. And there is only so much of that they can video!

Personally, I think the person who will come away from this a superstar is Buddah, my dog. (I do not know why the people I adopted him from spelled his name in such a way.) But just wait until everyone sees him shake hands, roll over, and dive into the pool!

My daughter has just informed me that she wants to come and live with me for the next school year. I'm not sure how she came to this decision or what prompted it, and I'm not sure how to respond. While it would be wonderful to have her around, I'm not sure that my profession goes well hand in hand with being a single father of a pre-teen.

The only thing I know for a fact is that it's incredibly difficult to say no to her.

I really am a little asshole in my dreams. I wanted to take over as my father's sidekick, so I started a fight with his current sidekick, who was also technically my adopted brother. I literally tried to kill him and I wouldn't have cared if I did either. I don't know why, but my father had a huge T-Rex statue and we were fighting on that and I sucker punched him so that he fell. He was fine, but after that I got grounded. I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that it's not gonna help at all.

My therapist figures writing on here might help some. So, ah, here goes.

Dreaming of being another person is really weird. Of course dreaming this and seeing all the talk of dreams coming through and true is even more nervous making. I'm not fond of my dreamself. Not remotely.

What makes things worse is discovering the original copy of my birth certificate and that my name is not what I think it is. But the name of my dream self.

That... freaks me out. How do you even process that your name is not what you think it is. it makes this dream thing seem a whole lot less fun, even, than it was before.

BUT NO LONGER. No more do you have to bow down to your chickeny overlords. Now, you can get a device to cook the eggs for you.

And, as an added bonus, they end up looking like egg boners. Because that's kinda awesome.

And so another birthday passes. I turned seventeen yesterday, April Ninth and it was like any other day, really, other than in addition to school, work, and tutoring, I also had a birthday dinner which just ended, and presents.

Not a bad way to spend the day, really. Hard work, helping people, seeing new things... oh! I tried out this awesome new tea shop today. It's one of the best ones I've seen in California, and has spot on Japanese teas. Awesome!

Being seventeen doesn't fee any different than being sixteen, and somehow, I thought it might. Ah well. I figured I would first poke on here yesterday, but school, tea shop, work, tutoring, and birthday dinners kept me offline until just now. So, hello, Valarnet!

Good day, good people of the valar net! I'm Beleg, and I'm new to the network and to the area. I don't expect that people will know or remember me hi Turin, but I also star in a on-again, off-again web series: Beleg Cuthalion - Big Bow Hunter. It's chronicling my outdoor adventures tracking and hunting with various really big bows and how I have fun cheating death. I firmly believe that hunting's only fun and truly sporting when it's equally dangerous and your prey can run you down and eat your face off!

Alas! It would be on more of a regular schedule, if I could only stop bleeding.

If there's any sort of good hunting grounds or other archery enthusiasts out there, let's meet up and try to get our faces eaten off, together!

Isabela, obviously, you'll be one of the starring characters. You'd approve who I cast as you.

Pirates, templars, and lots of nighttime trysts in tents. I'll have to figure out the locations, it'd be hard to shoot in tents.

And it felt so good

My penis inside of him
I just had sex
And I'll never go back
To the not-having-sex
Ways of the past

Have you ever had sex?
I have it felt great
It felt so good
When I did it with my penis
Roy let me do it
It literally just happened
Having sex can make a nice

So Valarnet,

Do you ever miss people from the dreams who aren't here and probably will never even BE here? Because it's kind of happening to me right now. I just saw something amazing over the last few days, but all it made me do is think of that person from my dreams who I don't think I'm ever going to see, and actually legitimately miss even though I haven't even met her.

It's...weird, you know?

Bran said that these dreams get kind of sucky as they go on, but the one I had last night was pretty nice! Bran was practicing archery and failing, so I jumped in and whooped his butt! It was a lot more fun than sewing lessons with Sansa and listening to that Septa lady drone on about how perfect Sansa's lines are or whatever. Everyone but mother thought it was hilarious. And Bran. After I hit the bullseye, I took a bow then Bran ran after me.

I totally think that me and Bran need to take archery now so I can whoop his butt in real life too.

Oh, and Courf, I'll definitely be at the party.

Isn't this dreaming thing freaking fantastic? I mean really. What did I do in this other life or whatever to deserve this? Oh wait, I was forced to fight to the death with other children. That must be it. Everyone else gets to dream about being superheros and doing awesome things and I have to dream about a world were children are forced to murder each other.

How many times in life can a person draw the short straw? Yes, that's supposed to be a rhetorical question.

Even though I've lived in California a few years now, sometimes I still get such a culture shock. It's weird coming from a small town to California. If you've always been here, you'll never notice it. But if you're from a small place in the middle of the mountains like me, it's like night and day.

Especially Venice Beach. I mean, sure, you won't find a beach in the town I'm from. We're nearly 7 hours from the ocean. But you definitely will never find the types of people walking around there in Revelstoke. You'd probably be laughed at in the street, publicly mocked. It's a very small town -- not a lot of money there. People don't get too imaginative with what they're wearing or doing when they're working in lumber. The nicest you'll see most people wearing out are non-ripped jeans and sweaters.

In any case, I guess I'm not surprised I still get shocked by the people and places around here. But really, three years and I still get freaked out seeing a dude in a thong?

...Okay, well maybe I'll never get used to that.

Is this the apocalypse or something out here? I mean, work's starting to feel like I need to be legit armed with my real bow and trick arrows just in case, instead of the one I shoot with when I'm doing normal people shooting. You know, just in case the shit seriously hits the fan and I've got to protect my kids, and lead them in, I don't know, defending the castle.

Look, everybody's had that fantasy at least once in their life, and it's better than seriously thinking about a world ending cataclysm. Then again, in the OC, it's starting to feel like that kind of thing happens about as often as holidays. I wonder if there's some kind of statistical analysis thingie for how often weird shit goes down here. One of you science people ought to compile it. I'd offer to, but...dumbness.

I just need to know if I should be making my peace with Crom or something here, I guess. Thoughts on the creepy?
