Dream 05 → What Do You Mean It's (Not) Symbolic?  
Dream Effects: A slight feeling of disconnection. Confusion, lots of it, and the dawning awareness that you're having a (rather weird) dream.
Warnings: Rampant symbolism. Forgive me.

Decisions. )

[Ken wakes up with the lingering feeling that he's missed something; he's not entirely surprised to realize that the stupid Dreamberry didn't miss a thing. Well, he probably was overdue for it. Could have been worse, he guesses. At least this time it wasn't stupidly embarrassi--

[Wait. What the Hell date is that supposed to be?]


... damn, how long was I asleep?

Voice 02 → Lost Something?  
[Ken's already clicked the feed on, but he hesitates for a moment before speaking, trying to compose his thoughts.

[He's not really sure on the protocol for situations like this. He's not even sure this counts as a situation. Dominic's a grown man and he can look after himself and it's not like it's unusual to go a while without hearing from him. Ken's being an idiot over this whole thing, but--

[--but something just feels strange, that's all.]


Has anyone heard from Dominic lately? That's Dominic Sorel. He's a, uh... [Dammit, what does he do again?] We're friends. I went to drop some stuff round and he wasn't in and it's kinda weird, so--

[You're babbling.]

Well I kinda wondered if anyone's heard from him is all. I-- thanks.

[OOC: Takes place after this post of Dominic's, for obvious reasons.]

Video 08 → My Mistakes, Numbers 4,926 - 5,101  
[The video cuts in to show Ken frowning down into the camera, breathing a little too hard and too fast, and biting his lip. Clearly he is looking for something in one of the Dreamberry's menus, jabbing at the keys beneath the screen; just as clearly he triggered the video feed in the process. The image shakes: he's grasping the Dreamberry as firmly as he can, but it doesn't seem to stop his hands from trembling. Confusion crosses his face for a moment or two as he tries to work out why the screen's changed, then he mutters a frustrated curse, but the audio doesn't seem to pick it up.

[The picture cartwheels madly as he tosses the Dreamberry onto the bank he's sitting on. When it lands and the tumbling stops, the screen shows nothing but a slice of sky, thin skeins of clouds drifting overhead. Sixty seconds later, the feed times out.]

[OOC: Ken's been dead for a week after Muraki murdered him, and has lost his voice as a penalty. Replies will be in the form of text messages, or possibly charades.]

Video 07 → What Do Women Want, Anyway?  
[Unfiltered. Let's see how long it takes Ken to realize this.]

[Ken sits on the edge of the fountain in Espoir, frowning into the camera in aggrieved confusion, as if it personally has done him some disservice.]

Uh... this is probably gonna sound dumb but Does anyone know what kind of stuff you get a girl you like that isn't totally stupid or creepy?

[The head and neck of a toy giraffe are just visible in the lower right hand corner of the frame. Ken glances over at it as he speaks, then shoves it quickly down in an attempt to get it out of shot, without any real noticeable success. An awkward look flickers across his face. Great, so he's already seriously regretting deciding to ask this question and he hasn't even finished saying it yet...]

And I'm not gonna do flowers.

[The feed cuts off quickly.]

Video 06 → I think I broke something.  
Huh.

[Ken stands in his living room holding the Dreamberry. He checks it's recording, then sets it on the arm of the couch. He picks up a small hi-bounce ball and throws it overarm against the living-room wall. It bounces off; he catches it in his palm. He repeats the process a couple more times just to be sure, then pockets the ball and picks up the Dreamberry again.]

Okay. Okay.

[He walks up to the wall. Taps it. Leans against it. Scrapes at the paint with a fingernail. Sticks his hand through it. Takes it out. Looks at it. Looks at the wall. Repeats the process a couple more times then - clearly bracing himself - walks forward.

[For a moment the recording goes black. When the screen flickers back into life, it's to give everybody at home a good view of the corridor outside his apartment.]


Is anybody else having problems with their walls?

Video 05 → The First Person to Make a Sleeping Beauty Joke Will Be Punched.  
[Have a very, very rumpled and bleary-eyed Ken, rubbing at his eyes with one hand as he struggles to get his Dreamberry working with the other. Triggering the video feed was not what he had in mind, but either he hasn't noticed that small detail or simply doesn't care.

[He yawns, incompletely covering his mouth with his hand, and blinks a couple of times and for some reason he's got a horrible feeling he's late for work. In fact he's got a feeling he is incredibly late for work, so late that if he was anyone else doing any other job he'd probably have been five minutes away from a pink slip. How long's he been asleep for, anyway? Don't these things have the time on them somewhe--]


... this thing working? Wait, what date's everyone else got?!

Video 04 → No, Really, I'm Just Curious.  
[Filtered from Weiss]

[Ken, wearing a blue apron, is standing in what appears to be the stockroom of Nectar.]

So...

[He hesitates for a moment, gazing around himself apprehensively, clearly worried he might be overheard. When he turns back to the screen, he closes his eyes briefly and takes a deep breath, as if steeling himself for something.]

What would it take to make you decide you couldn't be yourself any more?

Video 01 → Technical Difficulties  
[The Dreamberry turns on to reveal a fascinating shot of what appears to be someone's ceiling. After a few moments of this, the top of Ken's head can be seen.]

--doing anything, I don't think it's... oh. Oh right, so it is working. Press and hold. Okay.

[A brief moment of confused motion and Ken, frowning in concentration, is peering intently into the camera as if he expects it to do something amazing; a brief silence while he presses randomly at random keys.]

Right, now what?

[A young girl - Aya-chan - can be heard laughing a short distance away. Ken momentarily turns to her.]

"Say something!"

But I haven't called anyone yet. Don't I have to call someone? This is a phone, right?

[His frown has, if anything, only deepened. A few more moments pass, which Ken mostly spends staring at the screen in complete bafflement, before he looks up. The Dreamberry is tipped backward, once again showing a fascinating view of the ceiling and what could possibly be some kind of light fitting.]

"You already have-- you just called everybody! It's recording now-- say hello."

What, so people are listening to me like right now?

"Yes."

[Ken looks back down at the screen again, looking rather panicked.]

Oh. Oh, crap. Um... sorry. Sorry. Bye.
