Time to just test some waters I suppose. I'm guessing alice will refuse to do these.

Alice: ...

No. It's not yours. You put it back where it belongs.

> Check your diary

[Image: 17_by_terra414-dc81tdh.png]

It may say 'Diary' on it, but you are using it as a dream journal. Apparently recording shit on it to not forget later is important or something, or so your brother says. You suppose he’d know better so you’ve been trying to keep at it.

[Image: 18_by_terra414-dc81teu.gif]

Yep, checked. Everything looks as it should.

> Watch a video about medieval swordfighting

[Image: 19_by_terra414-dc81tg5.png]

Maybe another time when you can’t think of a single more uninteresting thing to do.

> See if your closet needs any cleaning

[Image: 20_by_terra414-dc81thg.png]

Oh no, thankfully you know better than to mess with the delicate balance of a well-kept closet. Everything’s where it should be.

> Consider that your brother might be right about the danger and bring a kitchen knife to your room to defend yourself with.

[Image: 21_by_terra414-dc81tit.gif]

You have better things than a kitchen knife right at hand.

> Recall what happened in your last lucid dream.

[Image: 22_by_terra414-dc81tjd.png]

You just checked on your Diary, that’s enough recalling for a day.

> That cactus pin cushion is quite adorable.

[Image: 23_by_terra414-dc81tl2.png]

Yes it is! Your guardian brought it back for you from one of his trips. It's both adorable and useful, what else could a girl want?

> dang are you parched! drain desk-cactus of it's precious, life-giving juices.

[Image: 24_by_terra414-dc81tmb.png]

…What? It’s a pincushion, why would you even-

>eat your hands for a +2 bonus to dexterity

[Image: 25_by_terra414-dc81tnt.gif]

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

It seems Alice is more sensitive than most to being ruffled. If she becomes too upset, she may become difficult to control or disregard commands entirely.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*


>You aren't feeling right in the head today at all. Maybe you should go get something to help calm yourself. Milk? Hot chocolate? Toast?

[Image: 26_by_terra414-dc81tor.png]

Some chamomile tea sounds good, or maybe lemon and ginger? Definitely not anything with caffeine, your brain’s playing you bad enough as is. What the shit….

> Knit to relax and calm your nerves. You should be able to get to sleep if you're relaxed

[Image: 26b_by_terra414_dc81z2i_1_by_terra414-dc821xs.png]

You're not feeling it but may as well get a couple rows in for that girl's sweater while you chill, you're close to done with it. It may help calm you down too, you feel kind irritated for some reason, like someone was playing you for a fool…

> get into some comfy PJ's

[Image: 27_by_terra414-dc81tqm.png]

Now that sounds like a plan. Pj, tea... Your brother may have advised you to start sleeping with clothes on to be ready for anything....Buuuuut he's a gross boy and you're a civilized human being. Going to bed with shoes on is just wrong.

> listen to soothing, Funky Kong themed ASMR to soothe your nerves.

[Image: 28_by_terra414_dc81trw_by_terra414-dc82awb.png]

You've already decided to go knitting, the clicking of your needles is all the ASMR you need

> the weird voices are acting up you should get to bed

[Image: 29_by_terra414-dc81tt4.png]

You are not feeling like sleeping right now, maybe after that tea and finishing the back of that sweater.

> Maybe you should walk around you house for a bit, exhaust yourself before going to sleep. Might help you tonight. . .

[Image: 30_by_terra414-dc81twd.png]

Well, you're pretty much walking the whole house to get to the kitchen, so...

> Lack of sleep can cause jumbled, unsettling thoughts. You are no stranger to this. Mental exhaustion is a powerful force for confusion. Perhaps powering through it and getting some sleep anyway will help.

[Image: 31_by_terra414-dc81txt.png]

Your *brother* may be no stranger to this, but you normally have a very healthy sleep schedule, staying up for the past days has been an absolute bitch, provably accounting for the disorganization in your room. Speaking of disorganization....

Spoiler: Show Chatlog
Alice: Uugh, Gramps…
Alice: At least leave your cup in the kitchen!

[Image: 32_by_terra414-dc81tz8.png]

After washing the cup of your errant guardian and brewing yourself some soothing herbal tea, you sit down to finish this section of the sweater. Only the sleeves left after this! You’re pretty sure you can have this finished by the day after tomorrow, depending on how much sleep you may need and if you can convince your brother to have a get together.

Is there anything else you'd like to do?

I really, really love Lucidstuck, if you do too, you should check all the fanart i've done for it :3c

For those people who can't be bothered to check each frame of the gif. If you can piece together the blacked out words that'd be swell.

First page:
"even for me, and these things are apparently dangerous? I feel really bad I didn't believe him before.... I mean, I believed *he* believed it, I just didn't think it'd be real, and he's been seeing this shit for years... Well, hopefully I can ha-"

Second page:
"No wonder this world has 'Murder' in the label, I got two cats. First one was bad enough then he's like "Ohhh, you need another buddy to bodyguard you" but apparently I only really 'bond' with very specific (blacked out word/s) shit, it can only be something I-"

Third page:
"and apparently, my hate for cats trumps everything because I got 2. At least he seems to be pretty strong. I know they're on my side but I swear I just wanna flush DT down the toilet every time I see him, at least he hasn't tried to touch me, if it felt like real fur I think I'd punt him."

Fourth page:
"We decided to go out and explore and we got lucky, there was a soul just lying around and I gave it to Raziel, he got stronger, and then we were stalking some little shit with a spear that ran when itsaw him, but we must have seperated while chasing it because (blacked out word) (blacked out word) and I thought (blacked out word) kinda- like-"

Fifth page:
"AU seems to be going well, I haven't decided where to put the obscuring mark, Derrick says it's important but we have things under control in the house, nothing could last long if they get in, unless they're crazy strong like Big Stink. I'm gonna try to stay awake a couple days to see if I can get stronger like that, conjuring - and, th-"

Does really cute mice people, vibrant characters/backgrounds and the most adorable art style you've ever seen interest you? Read Great Haven.

Why not, if nothing else you can check how many rows you can get out in 30 mins.

> How relaxed are you feeling?

[Image: 34_by_terra414-dc8fn70.png]

Like...maybe 7 out of 10? Knitting is always good for the soul.

> turn the TV on for some background noise

[Image: 35_by_terra414-dc8fn81.png]

You're finally getting sleepy, you don't want to find something that'll wake you back up.

> Those PJ's look lovely. Are they self-made?

[Image: 36_by_terra414-dc8fna3.png]

Not entirely, they were just plain Pj's that you had and decided to pimp up with some stitching. You often enjoy sprucing up bland designs with your own touch. You like the idea of having something no one else does.

> Give your unapologetic opinion on Coraline

[Image: 37_by_terra414-dc8fnca.png]

It's an incredibly well put together movie. You are not a die-hard fan but you appreciate the whole aesthetics/motif combo going on through it.

You think you may have read the book years ago, but you have trouble remembering details about it. You think something about it may have made you uncomfortable.

> Consider what you're making.

[Image: 38_by_terra414-dc8fnei.png]

It's a sweater for Math Girl at school. You get the feeling she's reaching the end of her patience with homework, so it's about time you balanced things back up in your favour.

> That sweater looks lovely

[Image: 39_by_terra414-dc8fnfx.png]

You're good at what you do, but you wouldn't call this your best work. You just want something that looks well enough and you can get out quick.

> Where is your brother?

[Image: 40_by_terra414-dc8fngx.png]

He may be passed out on his bed after all, if he hasn't replied yet.

> Why is your brother hesitant to meet up?

[Image: 41_by_terra414-dc8fnix.gif]

He's not hesitant, just… short on …time. You haven't… seen him in …a … a couple… weeks...

HN: Sister?
HN: Sister, are you there?
HN: Did something happen?
DP: Hiiiiiiii brother <:
DP: You took forever, finally got some sleep?
HN: No…
HN: I was in the shower.
DP: Did you fall or something?
HN: …
HN: No.
DP: Oh my God, Derrick, seriously? Again?
HN: I didn’t fall.
DP: Are you hurt? You want me to go get you?
HN: No.
HN: It’s just a bump.
DP: Would it kill you to sit your ass down when you’re about to faint!
HN: I’m fine.
DP: …How many days has it been since you slept?
HN: I slept yesterday.
DP: How much?
HN: I don’t know.
DP: …What do you mean you don’t know?
HN: I was in the bus.
DP: …So you took a nap in the bus and you call that sleep.
HN: Alice, did you message me for something or just to make fun of me?
DP: Brother!
DP: I’m not making fun of you, I’m worried!
DP: Who knows how many days you’ve been up if you’re already conking out just standing.
HN: Yeah sure, I’ll just shower sitting down. Like a toddler.
DP: Derrick, I know you’re cranky because you haven’t slept in who knows how long.
DP: But don’t get salty at me just because I’m telling my only brother to take better care of himself.
HN: …
DP: I get it, you don’t sleep for a while, your head gets a little wonky…
DP: I mean, I’ve been trying to stay up for the past couple nights and just from that my brain’s already given up on me.
DP: I was thinking of drinking up my pincushion just a little while ago, that’s how bad it is!
HN: What?
DP: You know, the cactus one gramps got me? On my desk?
HN: No, not that!
HN: why did you stay up this much?
DP: Oh.
DP: Well, you know how you see these things even when you’re awake?
HN: That’s not really how it goes...
DP: Well, I thought if I stayed up for a couple days I’d do that or dream harder or something.
HN: Alice…
DP: Maybe I could lure them to a trap or something? They can see me, I can see them but they can’t touch me.
HN: That’s not how it works!
DP: How would you know?
DP: You only ever do it like this anyway.
DP: Consider it a test trial.
HN: Alice, NO.
HN: You don’t ‘dream harder’ just from missing sleep!
HN: You just pass out harder and have it harder to wake up, too!
HN: Or you pass out and you think you’re awake but you’re not, which is unarguably worse!
DP: Why would it be worse, if it’s a dream?
HN: It’s not normal dreams.
DP: How are they different?
HN: I’m not sure how they’d be different to you, ok?
HN: Ask your cat guide to tell you.
DP: You said not to trust him.
HN: I told you not to trust him *blindly*.
HN: Look, just… maybe set your alarm for an hour in, stick to the parts of the house covered by your mark and you should be fine.
HN: Make sure things are safe.
DP: I don’t have the mark in yet.
HN: …
HN: WHY WOULD YOU NOT HAVE THE MARK IN YET.
DP: Whoa, caps lock.
HN: ALICE.
DP: I don’t know where to put it!
HN: THE FRONT DOOR???
DP: Take out caps lock.
HN: fine.
HN: What do you mean you don’t know where to put it.
DP: I mean, if I put it on the front door it’ll leave the back door open.
HN: Barricade it??
DP: What if I need to get out in a hurry?
HN: What if a monster comes in?
DP: A little late for that...
HN: ….
HN: Why are there monsters in the house, sister.
DP: Because they walked in, brother!
DP: What do you want me to do, go and tell them they’re trespassing?
HN: I told you to keep them out!
DP: Derrick, calm down. I have things under control.
HN: Monsters in the house is having things ‘under control’??
DP: Yeah, actually.
DP: One that got in is blind as fuck, we’ve been walking around it the past couple days just fine.
DP: Maybe we’ll get lucky and it’ll bump into another monster and they can fight it out or something.
HN: Alice, please.
HN: Hide your room. It’s your only safe place.
DP: Brother, it’s fine. I’m not sure this one even has hands anymore, I doubt it’ll be going around opening doors.
HN: You don’t KNOW that.
DP: Look Derrick.
DP: I just said I got this.
DP: I’ll handle things as they come up.
HN: Alice, I know you’re cranky because you haven’t slept in who knows how long.
HN: But don’t get salty at me just because I’m telling my only sister to take better care of herself.
DP: You did not just pull that on me.
HN: You served it on a platter.
DP: Fine, I’ll take care. I’ll put the mark when I go sleep.
HN: Thank you, sister.
DP: You’re lucky I love you >: /
HN: Hehe
HN: Send me a message when you wake up, so I know you’re fine.
DP: I’ll try to remember.
HN: REMEMBER IT.
DP: I said I'll try! Go catch some Zzz's yourself.
HN: Yeah sure.
DP: Ninight!

You decide you’ll make yourself something quick for dinner and go straight to bed.

Is there anything else you’d like to do before that? As tired as you are, this may be your last chance before you pass out.
