(I need to preface this by letting y’all know I’ve never played CP2077 so everything I know about Kerry I’ve absorbed from tumblr, mainly @caffeinatedrogue )
I had a weird ass dream about Kerry a couple of nights ago.
There was a woman who got visions of when people were going to die. She was a massive Puppy Eurodyne fan, and she got a vision that he was going to die and managed to prevent it for the first and only time in her life, getting herself branded a crazy stalker in the process and was given a lifetime ban to all of his gigs and was slapped with a restraining order and all that jazz, which she was less than pleased with.
Especially because the universe decided to take her ability to predict Kerry’s death off her and give it to his ex boyfriend, but also always put her in the same place as all these near deaths. So photos of ‘Tragic Car Accident Outside Secret Eurodyne Gig’ would always have both her and his ex boyfriend in the background, the boyf always closer to the action, which led to many wild conspiracy theories. And also to her getting very annoyed and bitter as she kept accidentally breaching terms of the restraining order.
Why the ex? well he inherited her gift, but only for Kerry, and as he was still pretty fond of him basically spent his time following him around and keeping the dumbass alive.
Kerry being completely oblivious to his many near deaths just thought his ex was a stalker and his lawyers threw restraining orders at him as well.
Ex also had a gun with 6 bullets which he was allowed to stop Kerry’s many deaths, but when he used the final one it would vanish so he’d spent many years finding other ways to avert Kerry’s deaths (see ‘car accident’ above).
This is all background, the main body of the dream was set when Kerry looks like CP2077 Kerry, the ex being very stressed because he only has 1 bullet left because he’s shot 5 people who were trying to assassinate Kerry, and the original woman has given up on the world and retreated to a remote floating community.
Cue shenanigans, ex trying to get to Kerry to explain what’s been going on, Kerry not believing, ending up on Kerry’s boat to go see this woman, tricking her into opening the gate to let everyone in and come outside, where the first thing she did was swear at Kerry ruining her life and saying she should have left him to die then rounding on the ex to give him a piece of her mind about what an idiot he was for continuing with it.
I’m sure it would have continued to be weird, but I woke up around then.
To help with casting, the woman looked like an older Charlize Theron from Old Guard, and the ex had the kind of long, shaggy dark hair and oddly tidy ‘scruffy’ beard you see in Hollywood on characters like Aragorn.
