amberite: the psiioniic (psiioniic 1)
- Part of Wires and Stars by [personal profile] amberite and [personal profile] titianarchivist -

Chapter 5: cup your hands like the conch to your ear

Teaser/Summary:
“I think, I think last time you could hear me I asked you to tell me everything. I. I still want that.” You look him square in the eye, still can’t get over how his eyes reverse-mirror yours, and your stupid defensiveness goes to brittle nothing like a drying soap bubble.

In which attempts are made to divulge memories, assuage discomfort, and consult a third party, with mixed success in all cases.

prologue (aka chapter 1) * chapter 2 * chapter 3

Chapter 4: it's a hollow play but they laugh anyway

Summary/teaser: You crawl back into your command centers through a narrow sideways channel of machine code, back to your body where she wants you: your body the central emplacement on the front line from which you can never retreat.

And in another time and place, Aradia is awesome.

Dream: I was in the town where my grandma lived, high school graduation was going on, accompanied by a massive LARP event. And every year at graduation a few kids were supposed to be conscripted as Helmsmen.

And I was this character who would have been conscripted but escaped, and every year during these events I helped the conscripts escape from the Empire’s clutches.

Boy, am I jonesing to keep writing Wires & Stars, apparently.

And maybe the reason why my brain turned high school graduation into a LARP was because I never really did the high school thing. (For that matter, maybe there’s a message about high school and sinister mind control!… Or not.)

But then there was also this sequence where there was a narrow window of time when I could get the kids out and it was, like, during some kind of prep phase and I had to unhook them from simulators and basically wound up bringing them through the LARP in disguise or something and that’s, like, a plot from The Sound of Music, practically.

NO, I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT MY BRAIN IS DOING EITHER.
