So I’m with a woman, alone at night in this building and this guy with a shovel breaks in. I decide to run while the woman just screams. I don’t think she makes it… I don’t really have anywhere to run to, so I just phase into the ground and float beneath the floor.
The guy with the shovel comes and taps at the ground above me. Darn. He can’t get me. He gives up and leaves.
Not wanting to re-enter that scene, I decide to continue further into the void. Thinking about my experience with the angelite I had just used before sleeping, I want to call Ring. I call for him like Kore does, “Ring Ring Ring!” It’s the best and only way to call him haha.
I begin to appear in a strange place. It reminds me of inside a lava lamp? Everything is glowing red and orange. I don’t think it’s actually lava though. It’s not hot.
I lay on a bubble rising and it brings me past these stairs. On the stairs I see someone coming down. I can’t see who because-
I wake up. I fall asleep.
I’m sleeping in a bed with Ariel holding me. I wake up, in the dream, and sit up to get away from him. I’m dizzy, but manage to stand up out of bed. I turn and just stand there. Tempted to sit down because I’m still feeling very tired.
Ariel stays laying and we talk.
Ariel: What’s the deal with Ring?
Ariel: He tried calling you twice.
Me: Hm. I tried calling him once?
Ariel: Oooh~ who’s calling who?
I ask about that. Saying I never heard any calls? How’s that work? Ariel starts trying to explain something about my sleep. He said Kore explained it to him before, but he can’t really remember. Something about falling back asleep within 45 minutes after waking up?
I wake up. I fall asleep.
I forget the first part. I know I’m someplace and go into a booth to hide from Ariel? He tries pulling at the curtain, but I hold it close. He steps away and stands nearby, just waiting. The booth I’m in is against a wall, so I think about just phasing into the void to escape.
I do but Ariel follows through too. I’m trying to move further and faster away, but he’s just kind of lingering behind me. I eventually reach a part of the void that’s water. I don’t want to drown, so I try turning another way. I think that’s when Ariel grabs me. I struggle around. Trying to find a way that’s not him or water. I think I end up drowning.
I wake up, in the dream, on a shore. It looks like I’m on some abandoned island? I’m naked. Ariel’s there too. He says I’ve been out for a while. I ask how long? “About 20 weeks.” Oh wow! I wonder if those ‘20 weeks’ were just then or maybe he’s talking about how I wasn’t dreaming for a bit?
I get up and start exploring. I see a box full of junk. Ariel says that’s stuff he’s been collecting for me. Hm.
Traveling up this one tower thing, I find some clothes? I’m still nude, so having some clothes doesn’t sound too bad haha. I pick out a large, yellow sweater and put it on! Ariel comes over and says he likes it. I say I do too! It’s yellow.
Ariel then starts pointing out yellow things. Not just stuff around, but also naming yellow things too. I remember him saying an apricot pie.
Me: What’s your favorite color?
Ariel: Yellow! And… Meatballs.
Me: Haha what??
Ariel doesn’t know.
Me: Why do you like yellow?
Ariel: Well, aside from you… I don’t know. I can’t think too well around you…
Me: Then I can leave.
I go back to the shore, open my wings and fly away to this other ledge close by. I turn back and see Ariel has this paper that’s a drawing. I go back to him, curious if he drew something??
Ariel says he wants to show me something. Look. But be cautious. There’s crude language on it… I say I see that all the time!
Ariel has the paper and there’s nothing on it. He then has this lens he holds over it. Starting at the bottom left corner and going right. Through the lens you can slowly see a picture on the paper. I’ve seen stuff like this before, it’s neat!
Soon I recognize the picture. I see it’s that one red guy from Hazbin Hotel! I laugh! I ask if he’s kinning with this guy? I forget how he words his answer. Says how he hates all the people who this guy hates? So yes? I say I’m not sure if I see it.
Now awake I rewatched the animation because I forgot everything about it to see the red guy. And honestly, yea, I do see how Ariel relates to him haha! They don’t believe in redemption and are entertained by those who do.
