If you're here from the birbsite, I used to be @/KitsuneAlicia, @/AileshaFox, & @/yowlenna. But since they kept locking my account without telling me how I violated their rules or which tweets were responsible, I've logged off for good over there. This is the only social media site you can find me on now.

This story has a really dark theme to it -- almost apocalyptic in nature, so I'm thinking a title like "Songs of the Apocalypse" for this.

Y'all

...Fuck. My mind just went all existential on me. My love for computers and video games, the dream itself... It's like my entire life was preparing me for this. Magical Dreams really will be my crowning achievement in life, my magnum opus, won't it?

So, it looks like I'll either have to learn how to make games in Godot, or find someone else who knows and is willing to make a game out of it for/with me.

And when I was down in the lobby afterwards, I had made my way outside in first-person view, then it switched to a news camera with me repeating those actions for what was the only scene that was viewed in 3rd-person.

That's a cutscene if I've ever seen one.

The second is the entire hotel scene. There's a part where I'm up in a room and I use some ice cubes as magic magnifying lenses to see into a rift that formed in an empty lot across the street.

I remember some sort of skill thing for this, like pressing a button multiple times to defog the ice.

In my dream, it took me a while to figure it out once they flew up into the air and I went on looking elsewhere for clues.

The butterflies waited there in midair for a good hour or two of in-dream (or in-game) time before I finally figured it out.

At some point, I realized it was more of a VR movie than a regular movie or story. But today, as I thought about it more, I realized it should be a VR game instead.

There's two scenes in particular that stand out to me and make me realize this.

The first is a scene that involves butterflies acting as what's essentially a story trigger.

Tbh, all my dream stories (and regular stories) seem suited for different mediums depending on how they were perceived upon dreaming/creating them.

My latest dream story seems best suited for an anime movie.

Others, like What Makes a Monster?, seem better suited for a live-action series.

But the one that I hold most dear to me, the one I still haven't finished, Magical Dreams, is suited for a very different medium.

P.S. As you can expect, the song was slow & mournful, but with the bridge, the tone changed to hope for those left behind until the final verse closed things out with what should be the death of the singer.

But while I don't wanna say outright what happened to us, let's just say it's amazing what difference a duet can make. πŸ˜‰πŸŽΆ

By this time she finished the 2nd verse, I was as ready as the healer could let me be, so I stood up and the song's bridge turned into a duet.

I woke up there, but I have an ending planned out.

My girlfriend realized all this just as the kaiju surprised us and came back. She then got up and looked into its eyes. She discovered the song and started singing while I lay there coughing up blood.

She was surrounded by a white glow that was way more radiant than mine whenever I had sung the song.

When she started singing the chorus, I knew she was going to go all the way. I had only ever gone up to the end of the first verse. I got the healer to heal me as best she could.

I had never confessed my feelings to her until that day. She sees me tear myself apart to save her and drive off the kaiju. Then I explain this to her.

I had discovered it all the way back when we saved her the first time. I didn't want to kill myself without first letting her know how I felt, so I only did enough to drive it off each time.

But she kept going back & eventually, my internal wounds got so bad that even with healing, I would never be able to eliminate the kaiju now.

And those unique requirements? It can only be learned by someone who is willing to give up their life to protect another. And not just for friends either. It has to be for love.

After she gets knocked out by the kaiju each time, I use the song to save her from her obsession while the other 3 shield & heal me. This happens again & again, with my body becoming more & more broken until finally, she doesn't pass out one time and we see how the song actually works.

If you've watched Symphogear, you'll recognize it as a Swan Song. It slashes the enemy over & over, but also mirrors the slashes to the singer.
