This is just my daily thought. I want to know how Susan felt when she lost her siblings. I wanna know what she went through and how she dealt with her pain. I wanna feel that emotion & cry with her. I want to know her story after Peter, Edmund, and Lucy went back home to Narnia. I wanna know if she cried out to Aslan and wondered why she wasn’t taken with them. I bet she cried out “Why them and not me?” I wonder if she was angry. I know her story wasn’t done. I know there’s more to her life. But I wonder if after her siblings left her if she found her way back to believing in the Land she loved the most. If she believed in Aslan once again & asked him to forgive her for forgetting. I wonder if she fell in love again with the place that truly is her home. Narnia is always her home & she is always welcomed back there. Because after all, Once a King or Queen of Narnia Always a King or Queen.
(It’s 5:00am and I can’t sleep so these may be a little off and they are night themed.)
• Deep yawns that cause the people around you to yawn back
• Coffee at 8 o'clock
• Waking up and not being able to sleep again.
• That trick when you were a kid where you would bundle up under your blanket and have a flashlight and read until your parents come and tell you to turn it off
• That trick where you hide under your blanket and read books and even hearing a small creak in the floor you turn off your flashlight and slam into your bed and start snoring to throw off that you were up past your bedtime
• Taking your clothes off and leaving them on the floor
• Staying on your phone and watching videos trying not to giggle too loud
• Pulling the covers over your head to feel their warmth
Alana visits Gideon in prison, wearing a simple short black dress, and a white cardigan printed with black chains.
Usually, chain prints on clothing are dainty, nonthreatening chains like necklaces, belts, or nonrepresentative abstract prints. This print clearly makes the statement that Alana is Gideon’s jailer.
Black and white outfits, with no red in them (unless you count lipstick), are more characteristic of S3 Alana than S1 Alana.
Alana nearly always wears clothing that fits too short (more than 2 inches above the knee when standing) and/or too tight for a professional situation. At first, I thought that’s just how things have to fit on television, but then I realized Bedelia’s clothes don’t fit this way. It’s particularly jarring in this prison visit scene.
Alana’s dress: black shift dress, unknown brand.
$$ My dress: black cap-sleeved jersey shift dress, Tu via eBay.
$$$ Alana’s cardigan: black on white chain-print cardigan, Diane von Furstenberg.
$$$ My cardigan: exact match via TheRealReal.
Everything else, as before, except that I am also wearing Circumnuclear Torus highlighter by @aromaleigh.
Your day so far has been a constant reminder of Chanyeol. Somehow his face hasn’t left your mind the entire time you’ve spent away from him. While it’s haunting your mind to no end, your day continues at its regular nonchalant pace.
The whole subway ride to work is full of your memory of the short yet captivating kiss from the previous day. It lingers like the whispers of your other reality. The walk from your final stop is calming to you, the hustle and bustle of the city relieve your tension. Yet, he doesn’t leave your brain alone with his eyes and smile burning holes into your mind.
As you reach your work, your greeted with a genuine smile from Lily, one of your few close friends you have in your real life. She stands on the short side and always has her blonde bob perfectly brushed. She makes up for her height with her signature heels, an essential part of her daily wardrobe, along with a plain white blouse that’s partially unbuttoned and pencil skirt. You always feel underdressed in her presence, your outfit today is a pair of denim ripped jeans and a black turtleneck with a sloppy, messy bun nestled on your head. She still seems to look flawless even without a bit of effort. She envelopes you into a hug as you draw closer.
“God, I thought you were going to be late again.” She jokes with you as her arm stays wrapped around your shoulder, she guides you through the entrance way and past the front desk. She greets the man sitting at the counter and continues on, into the elevator.
“Sorry, I guessed I zoned out for too long this morning when I woke up.” You shrug your shoulders as you press the button for the third floor. “I had this weird experience over there.” Lily’s eyebrows knit together in confusion as she looks at you.
“What happened? Did you have to have another social situation?” She finds enjoyment in joking about your lack of socialness, and you playfully slap her shoulder. She’s the only person you trust entirely with your mysterious circumstances. Not that you wanted it to be much of a secret, it just isn’t something you want to be going around. You’re pretty sure everyone would just call you crazy and delusional at the concept of your ‘realities.’
“Yeah actually.” another surprised look forms on your friends face. “I woke up with a stranger in my bed…. over there I mean.” The door to the elevator opens on the third floor, and you both step out.
“What?!” she whisper-yells at you, as you snake your way to your conjoined private office. “A stranger?”
“Well, kind of…. I felt like I knew him from somewhere, but I’m still not sure where.”
“Him! YOU HAD A GUY IN YOUR BED.” The whole office might as well have heard her comment as you rush to shut her up, slamming your hand over her mouth.
“Lily! SHUT. UP.” you tell her while shutting the door behind you. She removes your hand from her lips and places her bag on the coat rack in the corner. The room is quaint with two desk parallel to each other, both reasonably modern with a few personal touches on each one. The wall that separates you and hall has an array of camera equipment leaning against it with a small shelf in the middle to hold more minor things, like lenses, microphones, and cases. The wall opposite of the equipment has two medium-sized windows that give a view of the alley next to the building you both work in. Lily immediately continues on with her integration of what you told her moments before.
You both work for a smaller division of a major media company. Lily is an interviewer for mostly musicians who come to town. You, on the other hand, prefer to work behind the scenes as an editor and the coordinator for equipment, for the shooting of said interviews.
“A guy… as in a person of the male gender.” You roll your eyes at her remark. You drape your bag over the back of your chair and plop down into it, turning on the laptop you were given when you joined the company.
“No a dog. YES! A male human, as a matter of fact.” You sarcastically reply will not bothering to look up from your screen as you check emails and answer a few messages you received overnight.
“Was he cute? Oh my god, did you guys get it on?” She winks at you and wiggles her eyebrows. You now have the regret of telling her, you want to curl up into a ball under your desk and slip into oblivion.
“What if he was and do you really think I would tell you if we did it.” You never thought you would be saying that to your best friend. “We may have kissed though.” You shrug. A gasp fills the room, and a slow ringing sound breaks the silence. You checked the clock for the time, it reads barely two in the afternoon. The ringing doesn’t stop as Lily continues on.
“You didn’t deny it…So you just have a man all of sudden. How the hell does that happen?”
“He’s not my man, and I don’t know like I said early before you almost made a scene for the office. He was just there when I woke up, and he acted like he knew me. Like we had some prior meeting, but as far as I’m aware he is a stranger. I only got his name after accidentally snooping on his phone.”
“I guess other you got you a boyfriend, maybe she felt sad for your lack of social interactions too.”
“I’m not sure what happens when I’m not there. Even if 'I’ do stay 'alive,’ I’m pretty sure I don’t do anything out of the ordinary. Especially not making relations with strangers.” The ringing doesn’t stop, it had to be your phone back in Seoul because both of the ones in your current room aren’t showing any sign of life. Who could be calling me, its two in the morning back there?
Chanyeol? You remember finding his contact in your phone after he left. It can’t be my bookkeeper, no way would he wake up to discuss my account this early. “Well, at least you finally have something interesting. Maybe he’s your destiny. Maybe he’s there to help you figure out why this is all happening to you. Cause as far as we are concerned it isn’t normal to unexpectedly wake up in different life every time you sleep.”
“Destiny? You’re funny” You laugh and try to slightly listen to the ringing. It stops for a few seconds. You sigh, and then it returns. He must be calling again.
“You never know, destiny could be real. Your weird dilemma is real.” She might not be wrong, but you weren’t going to agree to anything yet. You stand up, shutting your laptop and taking your keys for one of the media rooms.
“I need to deal with something.” You point towards your ear, and she looks puzzled at your action. Then it clicks for her.
“Is he there? Can you hear him?”
“I can hear my cell phone ringing, and it’s two a.m. there. So it must be important. I need you to make sure no one goes into media room three for me. I’ll try to be back quick.” You open the door and turn back towards Lily to see her nod her head. She gets up and opens the blinds to the glass that separates the wall of the hallway, leaving it slightly open to keep watch
You make a quick escape for the door across the hall. Unlocking the door, you make sure no one is watching as you slip in and lock it back up. You go to the farthest wall and sit down on the floor with your back against the wall. The soundproof walls help your focus as you try to locate the ringing. Your senses subsid and you find yourself sweating in a seated position on your bed back in the apartment. The darkness is split in half by the lit signs of the skyline just outside the window of your home.
The ringing is now louder, and you reach for your phone. Your guess is right as his name is flashing at the top of the screen. You slide your fingers across the screen and hold it up to your ear. You stop breathing for a second as you wait for him to talk
“I’m sorry for calling so late, but I was wondering.” There is a long pause. “Can I come over?” his voice is soft and quiet in your new found silence. “I feel like I can’t sleep without you.”
(I’m back! I was so surprised this morning to find notifications about this on my phone, thank you all so much for noting my story. This chapter kind of sucks, it turned into a filler chapter in my opinion, but it feels necessary to show you all, the other side of reality and introduce your life in NY. I don’t know how often I’ll be updating, but I hope I can do it frequently. So, bye for now and thank you to everyone who liked it. See you all later, bye)
Interesting to note its not because of crime, it was the amount of accidents occurring in E.R rooms lol
In my case, I’ve always contested that my possession of a Balisong lies deep in my cultural roots. It is a ancient cultural artefact a product of the technology and the values and habits of the Filipino. The relative informality of when my first Balisong was handed to me - a rites of passage - for instance, was a reflection of the importance of a pre-existing harmonious relationship with the traditional Filipino knife and the martial prowess it wielded for my family much as the Bolo sword did to many Filipinos in pre-Hispanic times. The average Filipino once thought himself hardly dressed without a Bolo or a Balisong, it was a integral part of a man (and women’s) daily wardrobe. I just think it’s a shame the gradual discarding of the Balisong (butterfly knife) especially in my homeland is being witnessed. It’s an honest work of art if you ask me.
