sinsrequiem: (a contemplative thought)

❧ First Dream

[Flickering in and out with static marring the picture, the feed begins rather abruptly blinking from black to the drab hues of various grays and browns. Standing before what appears to be a murky mote, the camera shifts randomly in direction once it’s owner began to stir. Allowing for the ominous clouds above to be seen upon the video, the camera lowers away from the sky and towards the ruins of what seems to be a temple within the dreary background. The visuals stay like this for a while with only the sound of raindrops pelting against the stone walkway.

Silence seems to be the only company here for this footage along with the sense of dread and foreboding lingering within the air. However, once a quiet voice filters into the audio this nightmarish world of loneliness and despair begins to ebb away into nothingness.


A mirage or is it a distant memory…? I cannot tell but this ‘memory’ should be buried beneath stone.

[Now that he’s clearly awake, Seymour finds himself questioning his own sanity now once realizes he’s no longer within the confines of Macalania Temple. Instead of standing upon the steps leading into the Chamber of the Fayth, he finds himself within and oddly dream-like world with some sort of machina nestled within his hand.]

Odd...

[ooc: still adjusting to the game, i hope i got this right.]

Then I certainly hope your research proves to be fruitful, Lady Mordio. Are there others working as arduously as you?

First of all, drop the 'Lady'. Second of all, don't call me by my last name. It's just 'Rita', got it?

And lastly? ... Probably. I rarely keep in contact with them, so unless they have some kind of a breath-through, we don't keep in touch.

Are you a scholar?

It seems you take offense to politeness. Oh well, 'Rita' it is.

Ah, I see. You are the kind of person who enjoys working alone.

I suppose you could say that. A Maester of Yevon would have to be a scholar of some sort in order to guide others.

That goes without saying.

You keep on mentioning the word 'Yevon'. What does it mean, exactly?

[identity profile] sinsrequiem.livejournal.com 2010-03-11 10:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Yevon is the predominant religion of my world of Spira, a faith that follows the teachers of it's creator, Yu Yevon. The beliefs would be quite complex for an outsider such as yourself to understand but this faith does focus upon the Aeons I spoke of.

I see. I've never been much of a subscriber to religion, so I can safely say that I don't particularly care. But these Aeons sound like they're worth looking into.

[identity profile] sinsrequiem.livejournal.com 2010-03-12 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
Careful. People from my world would quickly shun you as a heretic for such brash words against Yevon's teachings. Perhaps you are an Al-Bhed in spirit if nothing more.

The Aeons are wondrous creatures, beings of unfathomable powers. As I said before, I will keep you updated in this endeavor but until then, be at peace.

I've been called worse.

I'll appreciate that. A tip, then. Nearing the end of the month, something big might happen. It's been a recurring pattern now, so we might as well watch for it.

[identity profile] sinsrequiem.livejournal.com 2010-03-12 03:40 am (UTC)(link)
A recurring pattern of what exactly? Chaos, I suppose.

[identity profile] kyudousha.livejournal.com 2010-03-12 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
Sounds about right. Chaos. Monsters, maybe. They like changing it up on us, so I wouldn't be surprised if it rained ducks.

[identity profile] sinsrequiem.livejournal.com 2010-03-12 03:48 am (UTC)(link)
I welcome the challenge they bring.

[identity profile] sinsrequiem.livejournal.com 2010-03-12 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
Indeed I am. Why shouldn't I be? You seem to think of yourself so highly as well.

[identity profile] kyudousha.livejournal.com 2010-03-12 04:11 am (UTC)(link)
I think highly of myself because I know I have the skills to back it up. Judging from your tone, you do to. In all honesty, it's refreshing.

[identity profile] sinsrequiem.livejournal.com 2010-03-12 04:40 am (UTC)(link)
Judge for yourself whenever the opportunity arises, you won't be disappointed.

[identity profile] kyudousha.livejournal.com 2010-03-12 04:43 am (UTC)(link)
I'll keep that in mind.
