If only... by AishaxNekox If only... by AishaxNekox
:star:Skip down to the bold if you dont want the super-in depth description of how this came to be

you know, i had a weird half-dream-half-day dream...well, dont know how to explain it xD Bits of the idea came from a dream i had a bit ago and i just expanded on it in my free time.

I had a dream that I got into a terrible car crash and landed in the hospital and was shocked into a state of comatose. I was then thrown into my own mind, waking up in a completely white field of slowly spinning black wheels and gears [which is what semi-inspired the last drawing in here: ] In essence, it was my own sub-conscious/imagination.

In there I met my muse Averus, who told me that he had caused the car crash. I asked him why, and more importantly -how-, if I made him up. After that, the dream gets fuzzy and i dont remember exactly what happened.

So, here's how I flled in the gaps:

All of the characters I had ever thought of/created -- i didnt exactly create them. The universe that I thought of [you can see the lay out of it HERE: [link] ] Actually existed. Averus then chose to reveal the universe to me and then every character within that universe did the same -- when i "created a new character", they actually just let me know that they really existed. Whenever i thought of a new piece of background information or a new plot for said character, it was actually just that character telling me what happened in their lives. I figured that everyone had this power, this sort of telepathic connections to these universes, and everyone had a choice how to express these "true ideas" through drawing or writing, or maybe they wouldn't share them at all. In essence, all of us are just sort of...transcribers -- to tell their stories to our world.

I hope i didn;t lose anyone with all of that LOL. its hard to explain. alsoooo, dont get the idea that i believe this is actually how life works LMAO. which, re-reading this, it sounds like thats what im saying. but this is just the set up for the story/ video game plot im about to tell you.

Now, if you understand that, lets move on.

I asked Averus how/why that was possible. He told me the same exact thing I explained to you before. Apparently, the boundaries that separated my mind to the universe i was connected to was growing dangerously thin, so thin that Averus was able to affect our world and cause the car crash that shocked me into my own mind -- or really, it shocked me into the universe I was connected to. He explained that he had to do so in order to warn me of a terrible threat. Skye had grown aware of the fact that the said boundaries were growing thin, and was using the opportunity to break his way into our world.

Though, in order to do that, he had to enter the gate that lead into the fifth plane, Rashia, to get to the gate that lead to [what I've dubbed] the Monochrome Clock Works [or the giant white space with the black gears that me and Averus stood in], to get to the gate that lead out into our world that only appeared when the boundaries grew thin. Unfortunately for Skye though, Averus used up the last of his power to chain up the gate that lead into the clock works from Rashia.

Annoyed by this, Skye could only bide his time until Averus' power faded, thus breaking the chains and allowing Skye to enter. In his free time, he began a total conquest over the seasons plane and the world of the asleep, making sure to secure those gates to make sure that no one could enter the fourth plane -- or his world -- known simply as "the other world".

The key for the world of the asleep's gate was hidden in seasons plane, and the season's planes key was hidden in the world of the asleep Needing both keys to enter any gate that lead into the Other World was to be a fail-safe plan with the above design, but --what Skye didn't know is that Averus had nabbed the key that unlocked the Season's plane gate before Skye had sealed it off completely.

After all of this is explained, Averus hands me the key to the seasons plane and tells me i have to go and find the keeper of the key, destroy him/her/it, go to the other world, do the same, enter the other world through either gate and put a stop to Skye's plans before its too late. Of course, picking up help from any major ocs i meet along the way. Skye's minions which range from little inky, tary blobs with eyes to iron-clad soliders to behemoth shadow dragons litter all three worlds that My crew and me have to go through and fight. [i kind of imagine it a tales of symphonia/the abyss/vesperia game play -- you run into shadowy monsters on the world map and then get thrown into a battle with a party of 4-6 characters against how many enemies etc etc. you know what i mean if youve played the games]

theres a ton moer twists and turns that i thought of, but...i think i've rambled on enough for now xD; I can imagine the end of the game/story hitting a climactic final battle of me and my chars fighting a boss battle between skye in the Monochrome Clock Works, just feet away from the gate that leads to our world thats now completely free to enter with Averus' power drained, but my and my guys.gals pull through and defeat him, sending skye into the depths of the Clock Works forever. [again, see the last picture here: ] I wake up from the coma im in in our world, about...probably a week or so later. I figure time in that universe would flow differently than ours. Relieved its all over, i plan to tell the world one day about what happened, probably through a "fantasy fiction" novel. I look over out of the window to see the sun setting, filling the room with an orange glow. On a branch of a tree that rests right by the window sits a single crow with white eyes that seem like their spinning and dripping. With a shrieking caw it flies off in a flurry or inky feathers and the screen cuts to black, playing the credits, and making the player second guess themselves as to if Skye really got out into our world in the end -- open end for a possible equal? Probably not.

and jesus christ, if you read all of this and...even if you only half understood, I LOVE YOU. SO MUCH.


Above is a mock-up of one of those concept art pictures where you see a bunch of the video games characters all piled up together in one epic thing with the main character all like "FJSDK RAWR" and then head shots of some of the supporting characters branching out somehow.

Did....Did i mention that i have a pastel rainbow arm blade as a weapon LOL. sheeooot, all of those colors would just slice away at Skye's minions.

Oh -- also, forgot to mention. the "MAD WORLD" sign down is a tribute to a very old project of mine that had a similar concept...ish. I still use the orange horns and smiley face symbol a lot.

(Imagine this in Tobuscus's movie voice) *ahem* With tablet at the ready, pen in hand, and Bamboozle ready at her side, AishaXNekox creates a world where nothing is normal, coming soon, MAD WORLD! Will Aisha's mind ever be the same? (now back) I can imagine a movie trailer with this picture and description, I might end up having to make one, when I get the program for it for my computer.

One time I starting writing a book kinda like the first part. That, there was a parallel dimesnsion and people were communicating telepathically. Then I reread it and said to myself, wtf. I abandonned those characters anyways.

This is amazing. I read all of the story, and I love it.
Which is an understatement, but there you are.

Okay, so the curiosity has been killing me as of late... Is there a specific name to this genre of anime? The deranged/twisted, darker kind? I only want to find media in this genre but I have no idea what to call it o.O All I know is that I love it!

The game idea sounds fun. Hurray Tales of.
TerraIota Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2012
I understood the entire thing and it sounded GLORIOUS. Also I've had the EXACT (more or less) idea about books, that writers are just able to see into other worlds, and as they write their sight becomes fine tuned and everything becomes clearer as they keep going.

And yes it's an IDEA, I don't believe in that either ._.

OzWindlthorpe Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012
That is quite the interesting story and dream, makes me wonder if it was a premonition of the future. Though this is very interesting since you say how we might be telling the lives of others in different realms with our stories and drawings. For I actually believe that theory to be true in some way. Though do you still remember such a dream even now?

I read the entire description. You should do this. You'd sell so many games, and become RICH. I'd love you. Forever and ever. And you'd probably be the reason why I get no sleep, but oh well. lol
I think this is the single most amazing idea I've seen here... and that's saying something. I think you should really look into this at some point. :) Might be worth a whole lot of effort.

This reminds me of the dream I had back in highschool.

I had gotten really sick and had this dream about a nightmare circus with this reaaaaaaaallly creepy song being sung in that creepy little girl's voice while I saw all the attractions. I vaguely still remember the tall Circus Master, along with the bloody mutilated monsters used in the show and how horrific it was.

When i woke up, I instantly started writing down the song (as a poem). I entered in my school's Halloween Contest (for the school paper)

I got first place and won 100 bucks.
