beknightedheroine: (a jolt)

Post-Surgery

[personal profile] beknightedheroine 2012-06-07 10:59 am (UTC)(link)
[As soon as she's got the range of movement to clasp both her hands to the spot where her head was cut open and her.. where her soul gem was put inside, Sayaka does. For a long moment, while her fingers come out of the drug-wrought paralysis enough to have the basic strength to grip things - she wonders if she could just try to dig it back out.

She's barely pressed her nails into her scalp when Sayaka knows she can't do it.

She wishes she'd thought to hide her soul gem, do something with it, as soon as he'd plucked it from her grasp. It was stupid. Stupid stupid stupid dumb that she'd not done anything while she still could - and NOW what?]

Must have been a real funny thought. Putting the soul right back in me. Haha, great joke, everybody laugh.

[She's mostly muttering to herself, in a dry voice difficult to make out. She can feel a strange and uncomfortable pressure building up in her head, though - she chalks it up to just being a side effect of, y'know, getting a gem shoved into it.]


You must think you're real cute and witty, Jason, you rotten horrible bas...!

[--the pressure bears down immeasurably worse, and she lets out a pained wail, going from grasping at her head in a contemplated threat to holding it as it feels like the gem inside it might split apart.]

[ It... is a long time before he speaks to the girl in the cell across from him.

But he may as well do what he can to help the people here, even if his Personas are slowly gaining more and more power from them... he wonders if he can kill himself, briefly. ]


... Don't... there'll be time for that later... just concentrate on surviving a few minutes at a time.

[ That's... how he'd survived before, so-- ]

head-pain buddies!

[personal profile] beknightedheroine 2012-06-07 03:15 pm (UTC)(link)
H, haha...

[Okay, Sayaka, breathe. Let's not convulse at the first sign of real pain you've felt in ages. This is nothing, you can handle this.]

Just ten minutes here, ten minutes there? ..I think I've heard something like that before.

[From Jin.]

[ ... Heh. She must know one of his friends. ]

... Even three minutes at a time can be a little ambitious in this situation...

[ He knows. All too well. ]

He's... doing this to make us obedient... but sometimes besting these sort of people... is just biding your time and hanging on.

[ It's... all spoken quite softly and a little numbed--he's aching, his Personas are screaming and that drain is basically making it worse, but.. yeah. He knows, all too well, how to deal with this. ]

[personal profile] beknightedheroine 2012-06-07 07:21 pm (UTC)(link)
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten...

[She starts muttering the seconds of those next three minutes under her breath, even as the ache in her head eases off.]


Just putting up with it til he's done with us? I can't - I can't do that, I can't at all. Obedience to this guy is such a joke--

[Woo, hi, pain, you seem to be back. She chokes on her words, but doesn't scream again. Biting her tongue is preferable to that, and it heals up with a nearly inaudible chime, anyway.]

..forty three. Forty four, forty five...

[ ... He sees this.

All of it, and falls to silence himself.

Thinking. Letting his Personas converse. Listening to them go on about the suffering and how it would really just be wise he stay put right now... ]


... No. To him, maybe...

[ To him... to him... what could they do indirectly to screw him over? He has to think about this. Because from the sound of it, he is thinking quite hard. His head is killing him and it's hard to breathe at times, but-- ]

... There's... give it a bit. I... didn't say we'd just... put up with it.

[ He's going to figure out something. ]

[ When she'd seen Sayaka been taken into surgery, she'd roused herself from her drowsy state, attempting to break down the door -- but her own ribbons had entangled her, forcing her to back down to avoid being knocked unconscious.

She forces herself to watch, though, hands curling into fists, feeling the slow, unfamiliar burn of anger uncurling in her, something she hasn't felt ever since Kyuubey had confirmed that final, dreadful secret.

And her anger is not the flare up, cool down of Sayaka and Kyoko; no. She seethes, ugly thoughts rising to the surface, and while they aren't too dark, they're still surprising to her.

She leans against the wall, waiting, but when Sayaka screams she's immediately on alert.

Miki-san, what's happening--?!

[personal profile] beknightedheroine 2012-06-07 01:25 pm (UTC)(link)
[The pain had ebbed quickly, once Sayaka stopped talking. She's faded to a miserable pant now, trying to catch both her breath and her lost composure.]

..he messed with my soul gem. O-of course. Was like it was getting squeezed, or...
riflesandtea: and put on a show (we kill the lights)

[personal profile] riflesandtea 2012-06-09 11:54 am (UTC)(link)
He put it into your head, right...?

Maybe now that it's inside your head, it's getting cramped...? [ who knows what that person might have done to it, really. she's pretty angry now, but she's hiding it. ]

What's the point of all this...? Is it just like when we became Puella Magi..? [ are they just being used again, as game pieces this time rather than eventual universe fuel? ]
beknightedheroine: (this rotten world...)

[personal profile] beknightedheroine 2012-06-09 12:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Mhm.

[...she sniffles. It's not something she's let herself do much here - but this is Mami she's talking to. Sayaka can afford it for once.]

...becoming a Puella Magi at least meant something.

[The unspoken end to that sentence is "At first." ..she doesn't want Mami to ever know how far gone she went back home, what she'd heard from Kyoko - it's enough that she lost control here, right? At least in this place she has an excuse.

Sayaka doesn't want to need excuses.]


There's no meaning in this for us.

[That's skirting the edge of what she can and can't say, though, and Sayaka bites her tongue in more than one way.]

[Romeo was so angry, by the second day of them taking his friends and hurting them Romeo wanted to hurt the bad person; Jason, who was doing this.

Romeo rarely wanted to hurt anyone but this man was hurting his friends.

It scared him being this angry, wanting to hurt him. He had never felt like this in his life. By the time Sayaka was returned back to her cell he wanted to scream and scream and scream at Jason.

The only thing stopping him was the fact he knew his friends could be more hurt than this, that he didn't behave worse things would happen to them.

It made him feel helpless, which made him feel more angry. When Sayaka fell to the ground he moved as close as he could in his cell.]
You were very brave...
beknightedheroine: (ellipsis)

[personal profile] beknightedheroine 2012-06-07 03:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Huh..? Romeo, were we attending the same, uh, performance?

[She doesn't feel very brave right now, picking herself up from the floor with difficulty born from the still-wearing-off drug she'd been put under for the surgery. She feels about the most opposite thing from brave you can get.]
myblueskies: (hopelessness)

[personal profile] myblueskies 2012-06-08 12:28 am (UTC)(link)
[He nodded, both trying to distract her, because she looked and sounded like it hurt a lot, and because he was telling the truth. She was brave.] Uh huh, you are. I cried lots more than you... last time. [Not this time though, last time was a long time ago and he had been in the tower a lot longer, he knew the bad people liked it when they cried.

Also if he guessed right it was summer now, and so he was another number bigger. 12, and 12 year olds didn't cry.]

[It's potentially because of Sayaka's age that her plight causes England such alarm, but he's on his feet at the sound of her screaming, pressing his hands to the plastic-like wall of his cell as if it'll help him get closer to Sayaka's. He knows very little about the nature of her existence or what they did to her, but--]

Sayaka. Calm down. Breathe-- please.

[No he's not worried at all what on earth are you talking about.]
beknightedheroine: (OTL)

[personal profile] beknightedheroine 2012-06-07 09:48 pm (UTC)(link)
[Breathing isn't high on the agenda - but it's evident it should be, when she ends up coughing her way into silence. Sayaka takes her time answering. When she does, it's in the form of an over-exaggerated breathe in, then out, and then a repeat of that.]

..there. Breathing.
keepscalm: (030❦I grieve at grievances foregone)

[personal profile] keepscalm 2012-06-07 10:14 pm (UTC)(link)
[It's a relief when she's not coughing or shouting anymore, but it's evident that she's not quite calm yet. He frowns a little.]

Good. Keep doing that. Count, if you need to. [It would give her something to focus on that wasn't...whatever effect the surgery was having on her.

He tries to keep his voice calm and soothing. He has reasonable success on the first part, but the second part is questionable. It would be easier to be comforting if he had the aid of actions to go along with his words.]
beknightedheroine: (what really)

[personal profile] beknightedheroine 2012-06-09 08:40 am (UTC)(link)
I can do counting too. Just do it three minutes by three minutes, one two three...

[He wasn't familiar with the kind of pain she was in, but head pain was something he could sympathize with. He'd seen it before, and it was obvious how bad it was.

For a bit he just watched and listened to her, mentally processing the whole situation.]


Calm down, kid; probably doesn't like you badmouthing him. Getting angry ain't gonna do you much good right now.
beknightedheroine: (OTL)

sayaka is just spending all of these threads agitating the terrible surgery repercussion

[personal profile] beknightedheroine 2012-06-07 10:29 pm (UTC)(link)
[Screaming is kind of tiring.

She listens to the remaining raspy sound of air going in and out of her lungs for a bit, and is on the verge of feeling pathetic when Jin pipes up and snaps her out of her thoughts.]


Oh, I dunno. Maybe I should get mad. As mad as I can, and then -

[- and then become a monster, and hope that that monster's power is enough to break out of here? ..she doesn't want to let that idea get too friendly with her. It's giving up control to some unknowable torrent of a force - one that's nothing but trouble, anyway.]

- and then maybe I'll boil myself away, into a bunch of angry steam. And then that steam'll go and make Jason choke on i...

[Jin was right.

Badmouthing got the pain to come back.

More news at eleven.]
morituramfides: (We go Underneath the Arches)

[personal profile] morituramfides 2012-06-07 10:52 pm (UTC)(link)
[He could figure out just by watching her that the pain came back in full force when she started the badmouthing again.]

The only one choking on steam is you. He's trying to keep you from blowing your lid over him.
beknightedheroine: (queen takes knight)

[personal profile] beknightedheroine 2012-06-09 06:54 am (UTC)(link)
[Real witty saying that when she's actually choking!!]

Why? Why does even care about it! All I can do in here is talk! I can see that! Augh...!

[She couldn't help anyone, she couldn't help Mami when she'd wondered countless times before what if I'd had this power then and now she really couldn't do ANYTHING--]
