[Now that the Shadows were gone, Lancer had taken up exploring the Tower again. When he made it to the fifth floor, he though it would just be like the other floors. If anything, he had expected monsters like the Shadows, and not what he actually saw.]

[Looking through the viewing scope, he found nothing but shifting scenes of a wasteland. He had dismissed it at first, but one of the scenes grabbed his attention. It was a dead land like the other images, but he thought he could recognize the remains of the buildings. As if to mock him, the image slowly zoomed in on a place that was the ruins of Fuyuki. As the image got closer, he started feeling dizzy and empty--the feeling of a Servant whose Master had just died.]

[But that was impossible. The last time he had left her, Ayaka was still alive. Then, why...?]

[The viewing scope first showed him Misaya, finally having found her peace in death, lying there as he had left her. And then it showed him the Grail, even more still and dead than it should have been. Lying there among the corruption was a little girl, one who he had met during the summer festival. The next image was the perverted priest, and the one after that was of Misaya's various classmates. They were all dead. Not just the humans, but the animals and plants as well. Of the Servants there were no trace, but Servants never left more than dust behind.]

[At this point he just wants to pull away and stop looking, but the sight draws him in. There's still one person he cares about left behind in his world. One girl who he had sworn to protect until she could retrieve her Servant. Even though the rest of this world is dead, he hopes that she, at least, is still alive.]

[When he finally sees her, he realizes why he's been getting this feeling. He no longer has a Master, not even a temporary one. Ayaka Sajyou is as dead as the rest of her world.]

[She was lying still, her eyes closed, a faint smile on her lips. Her face is turned to the side and one of her hands is extended horizontally, as if to reach to grasp something. It's only when he notices the pool of black mud next to her that he realizes she must have spent her last minutes with Saber. At least...she could spend her last minutes with that guy.]

[It's at this point that he finally pull back. He takes several deep breaths before heading to a networking console. It took a while for Lancer, even with the updates he had received from the Grail when he was first summoned, to find the audio function. However, there was no way he would show anyone his embarrassing emotional state on video.]


[His words come out as a whisper.]

What the fuck is the fifth floor all about?

[It seems obvious enough, but it could possibly be an illusion. He hopes that the other tower residents could confirm this guess.]

Well, gee! No one really wants to see the stupid those viewports are peddlin', so it's better to just black them out for a while. The way you were asking, you'd agree, right?

...You don't get it yet? It's all just to mess with our heads. That's what they do here. In between all the messing with the rest of us.

You can either buy into it, or you don't.

I'm saying think what you want. You wouldn't change whatever opinion you already got just because I'm saying 'it's all a lie.' Seeing matters more than hearing.

in my perſonal and mildly profeſſional experience, ſeeing a bunch of dead people uſually means that a bunch of alive people died.

at this point, does it matter? all you can go on is belief now, so what do you believe?
andajarofdirt: (06 | about to get worse)


[personal profile] andajarofdirt 2012-09-16 03:31 am (UTC)(link)
i was given a tour of what they ſaid was my world, which looked exactly as what you can ſee in that floor. and everything really was dead and barren, but after davy jones' locker, i do not even know what to think. it could have been anything, really.

i do not know about others, but i recognized my world. there are things you will never not recognize.

[personal profile] andajarofdirt 2012-09-16 05:13 pm (UTC)(link)
and i am ſure you will convince everyone with that fine logic.

...you really have not been here long, have you.
andajarofdirt: (14 | I never said that)


[personal profile] andajarofdirt 2012-09-16 05:37 pm (UTC)(link)
yes, well. do let me know when this impaling buſineſs goes down, i would like to ſee this.
andajarofdirt: (09 | ruuuuuun!)


[personal profile] andajarofdirt 2012-09-16 06:12 pm (UTC)(link)
it is alright, lad, i am excellent at dodging.

[personal profile] andajarofdirt 2012-09-16 06:18 pm (UTC)(link)
i am pretty certain the anſwer to that is no.

amazing, is it not.

[Jack is much more of the school of W E L P. And handling things as they come and somehow always landing on his feet. He's not personally offended, at least. They have somehow managed to avoid that. Or he hasn't let himself be personally offended. Sometimes it's hard to tell.

Gods and Devils help the Tower if Jack Sparrow gets Offended about something, he's a little single minded about things like that. He sees Lancer's rage as a bit of a waste of time. Not much you can do, not much point to it now.]

and i am ſure you can call it many other things as well,

well, if killing monſters is your thing, you can always drop by the thirtieth floor. there are always creepy crawlies all over the place and certainly no one will ſo much as miſs them. juſt do not blame me if you turn out to be not as good as you thought you were, and you get killed.
