The Difference Between Them

One difference between the twins was that real!Ciel had his future mapped out before him, while our!Ciel’s future was much more open. I’ve actually written about this before. At first glance, real!Ciel might seem like he has the brighter future. He’s going to inherit the title, the land, etc. He doesn’t have to worry.

But he has no choice in the matter.

Assume for a moment that he didn’t want to be the watchdog. When you stop to consider it, it’s not really a desirable job, and there’s a good chance it will lead you to an early grave. This was real!Ciel’s destined path, however, and it had been predetermined for him.

Our!Ciel’s future was open to him. Showing optimism, he even says how he’d like open a toy shop.

Of course, we know that our!Ciel does sell toys now, but the point of all this is that our!Ciel had a choice. He could have dreamed of any sort of future career for himself with one exception. He should have never been able to become the watchdog as even Frances thought he wouldn’t be able to take on the burden.

This might be part of the reason that real!Ciel wanted his brother to pick a future profession that would keep him closer - like a vicar or doctor. Real!Ciel knew precisely what his his future was supposed to hold and where he would be one day. (At least, what everyone expected.) Our!Ciel could dream big. RealCiel had little reason to dream.

This even goes back to Undertaker referring to the

It doesn’t only ‘bind’ its wearer to the queen, but also to a certain future. Real!Ciel was chained to this future, and he was chained alone. His brother could escape it all.

Of course, that was before their parents were killed the cult kidnapped the boys.

While our!Ciel thinks of his brother as the lucky one…

…it’s quite possible that real!Ciel thinks the same about his younger twin.

After all, our!Ciel was the one that had the choice as to whether or not he wanted to leave.

He simply chose not to.

Oliver gets to meet Goth Felicity for the first time. 

one of the two chapters I promised you for this week. 

(If you follow Comfort Is… I put it on hiatus. I am already overwhelmed with the other two stories I am working on and with RL. I promise I will be coming back to it. I already have the next three chapters somewhat mapped out to match the three prompts that I have missed thus far.)

The Arkansas Sleep Experiments

by reddit user nazisharks

To Those Who Sleep

This happened a few years ago. You may have heard rumors if you’re on campus. Some even circulated online. Nobody knew what really happened. Because I’m the only one who knows and I kept quiet. For a multitude of reasons. None of them matter now. Here’s what really happened.

The four of us were handpicked for this experiment by Prof. Richardson because we’d all studied under him, worked under him, and, as much as anyone can, earned his confidence.

He said this one was different. We had to keep it quiet. He wanted to keep details to a minimum. All he would tell us before going in was that he required a month of our lives and that if he succeeded sleep would never again be a necessity.

“Harry — I think I’ve just understood something! I’ve got to go to the library!”
And she sprinted away, up the stairs.
“What does she understand?” said Harry distractedly, still looking around, trying to tell where the voice had come from.
“Loads more than I do,” said Ron, shaking his head.
“But why’s she got to go to the library?”
“Because that’s what Hermione does,” said Ron, shrugging. “When in doubt, go to the library.”
