[It was winter when they first came here, armed with nothing but the bandages they'd been buried in and some ancient, dried flower petals.

They remember how they felt, back then. How they thought. They'd been certain they'd been summoned on purpose. To serve a purpose. Expected every last soul in this place to be against them, want them dead, see them as a threat to be driven out or contained. Felt so certain they'd have to run a gauntlet of EXP-gathering. Of survival in spite of, not survival because of their circumstances.

They remember hiding behind a couch, scared to even show their face on camera. They remember their hesitation when asked their name, because nobody else had told them what the fallen human was going to be called from now on. Like they didn't have permission to... exist so much. Like it was breaking a rule to have a face, to have a name, to be seen here.

Which is funny, because despite how much everything has changed... they've come here again, and they sort of feel the exact same way as they had back then.

Did things change? Has everyone become perfectly happy, living in a world where Chara let them go? Maybe their absence wasn't felt at all. Maybe nobody noticed, and suddenly having to put up with what was already supposed to be gone will just be awkward and unpleasant. Maybe they'll demand to know why Chara exists again, and what excuse can they possibly offer up to that?

They wonder if their chamomile plant died while they were away.

They wonder if anyone they know has vanished while they were away.

Wonderland is back to normal, and that means no event-chaos to hide in. They go up to the diner, then, because it's familiar. Because diners are as close to safe as a hiding place can get. Because diners feel transient, anonymous, not-really-here, even if you've been hanging out at the same one for months.

They sit quietly in a booth. They hate coffee. The taste is awful, bitter, makes them queasy. The smell reminds them of desperation and anxiety. Even so, they've got a steaming mug full of it - pitch black, of course, because real adults like their coffee black - which they mostly ignore as they idly carve an asterisk into the formica surface of the table.

Not like vandalism really matters here. That mark'll be gone within an hour, like it never existed at all.]

[Eventually, they put up a text post. Can't put it off forever. They've never been patient enough to put anything off forever.]

Does anyone know if my rocket launcher is still here? That would have been useful during the event, I bet.

[Souji had noticed Chara's absence from the diner for several weeks. He'd wondered at it, but hadn't pursued it. Now, seeing them again and really considering how long it had been, he thinks he should have asked Frisk about it. There's a small pang of guilt as he rounds the counter and approaches the booth where they're sitting.

He notices the carving, but says nothing about it.]

[When the text goes up under that familiar name, their heart constricts like a python around their throat, that dizzying relief dropping them onto the bed for several long moments because their knees won't hold them up anymore. They'd hoped - they'd hoped. Of course they had, because that's what they are, and what they do. What they're best at. One corner of the room, so empty and bare that it's impossible to tell if anyone's really missing.]

[But shoved under the bed - a rocket launcher. Pressed between the folds of the mattress - an old chocolate bar. Who knows how dusty it might be?]

[They shouldn't go through their things (too afraid to confirm what they'd feared), and so they'd kept it as simple as possible, something easily skimmed off the top, something easily picked away from what could be glimpsed.]

[And so they'd begun to rove about the mansion. Visiting old haunts. A library with a name spelled correctly. Gardens with flowers in full, heady bloom. Even an area in the woods - the sour smell of vomit and fresh-cut stems now nothing more than a memory that curdles at the back of their throat. The diner occurs to them only once they've entered the mansion once more.]

[And sure enough. It's not in the garden, but it's always in the last place you look.]

[Everything stays.]

[They don't slide into the seat opposite in the booth, but their hand rests atop the soft curve of the seat, bandaged fingertips and lidded eyes and hair with bangs that have begun to fall into their face.]

[Asriel doesn't respond to the text for several long moments, despite seeing the name attached to the text.

He should be glad to see them - and he is, especially since he didn't really understand how Wonderland works. Frisk tried their best to explain it, but all that Asriel really got out of it is that people can just up and disappear for no reason and maybe sometimes they come back for no reason too.

Haha, what is he suddenly feeling so scared for? It's just-

[He shouldn't. He really shouldn't. He told Frisk he'd stop messaging them, that he'd wait for them to initiate contact if they so chose--and in his mind he had sort of extended the same to Chara. Don't bother them, don't startle them, and if they want or need anything from him, they'll come to him. And if they never do, that's fine. They're entitled.]

[It's just that they've been gone. It's been so long. It had started to feel permanent.]

[Just this one thing, then. Just one line, just to confirm that he's still here, just so he can confirm that they're still here as well, and then he'll give them the space they deserve. Just one thing.]

action if thats ok ;; ALSO SORRY ITS SO LONG

[personal profile] fancylad 2017-08-31 06:20 am (UTC)(link)
[Angus does not... feel so well, about how that event went. He did something bad kids do, he embarrassed himself in front of people he wants to impress very much, and he just wants to hide.

The last few events have been like that, in a way. He just keeps acting up. He just keeps doing the wrong thing, he just keeps messing up where people like Georgia, like Shepard, like Taako can see it and realize he's not the good child he pretends to be.

And now that Magnus is here, he finds himself... happy, yes, so happy to see him, but worried. Because he knows Magnus and Taako can handle themselves, even without Merle (but it would be so wonderful to have Merle here too), and he knows they won't really get hurt here so long as they don't die more than five times, even though it can be scary sometimes, but... He's always been a worrier. He's always imagined the worst possible scenario. And neither of them remember anything past Wonderland -- the other Wonderland, the horrible one. He has the truth of their mission weighing on his shoulders, and he can't even tell them, because they wouldn't hear it anyway.

He's had a lot to think about, lately. Wonderland just has a way of heaping extra things on his mind.

So when he enters the diner, a lone child with huge round glasses perched on his nose, dressed in fancy clothes yet again, he hopes to stay a lone child. He just wants to be able to think for a while, and enjoy a juice and, well, not pancakes, he hasn't earned pancakes, but maybe a kid's meal grilled cheese. He sits and orders and tries very hard not to bother anyone.

But he can't help but keep glancing at the intimidating child with a coffee vandalizing the next table over, nervous. He's never seen them before. You know, they kind of look like Frisk, but... totally different.

It'd be weird to assume they were related to Frisk. Angus doesn't even know why he thought they looked like Frisk at all. He should probably not bother them -- Angus has never fit in with other kids, and he doesn't want to get picked on if he can help it.

Though for all he ascribes to the manners he was strictly taught, he's still a curious child, more curious than perhaps any other in his world. His grandpa did always say not to stare, but his grandpa's not around anymore, is he?

Well, if it's not, I'm sure we can get you something else just as fun.

[It doesn't convey properly in her words, the level of relief to hear from them again. Shepard's had people close to her leave Wonderland before, but for the most part, they've been people she'll see again. People waiting for her back home. Not the dull ache of a child possibly forever lost. Considering it's nearly a year to the day since the last important person to her disappeared for good, and the weight of him continues to kick around her psyche, seeing Chara back on the network is an unexpected, but much needed, balm.]

Don't tell Toriel I said that.
As always.
But seriously, we'll work something out.


[She considers not saying it, knowing neither of them quite get so mushy, but she should, if no one else will.]

Glad you're back.

[Chara has been gone awhile now. Mettaton had been feeling a vague undercurrent of anxiety over it, wondering if he should ask, but Frisk never said anything. Neither did Asriel. Maybe they knew something he didn't. Maybe Chara needed some time alone. So he let it lie.

With Napstablook gone, however, he'd been slowly preparing himself to ask that all important question about another important person in his life maybe being gone- but then he sees the text. Immediately he tabs to it (video of course) and responds.]


Chara! You're here! You're back.
