Shawn: A Wish Intercepted!
Shawn felt an intense, immediate rush, and then an omnipotent, pure exhilaration. He felt capable of anything and Shawn's senses kicked into overdrive. His heart rate increased, and he could feel his eyes, no...his pupils dilate and grow wider. Any hunger he had disappeared along with the fatigue and weight of responsibility.

It was a massive, head to toe rush and there was no other way to explain or conceptualize it. Shawn's head was buzzing in some other dimension.

Shawn was floating in complete darkness. Strange geometrical shapes floated up from below his feet, from the black abyss of nothingness from which he himself floated. Triangles, circles and the occasional square floated from below and passed by his face like bubbles like the movie scene in Charley and the Chocolate Factory.

A triangle floated up and stopped in front of Shawn, splitting into several sections and spinning before coming together. There were no words exchanged, no formal method of communication that could be understood in any other way but that which was actually understood in this hazing dream. The triangle wanted to know, wanted to help Shawn. It wanted to find out exactly what Shawn needed and then it would make the Bobby wish come true.

Shawn looked at the triangle, and felt a need to explain himself. He felt no guilt here, no need for justification. He just had to make the triangle understand what he wanted so it would happen. "I want to be able to tell Bobby to remember and forget stuff. Like, if I say 'forget everything about the Circus', he'd forget about the Circus. Or if I said 'remember we're brothers', he'd remember that we're brothers. And I want him to do and feel what I say, so if I say 'run away from the monsters and don't tell any grownups about them' he would, and if I said 'you like Ralph', he would like Ralph."

Shawn knew the triangle understood what he was saying. Somehow, it was transmitting its own thoughts to him: A renewed sense of gratitude, an experiential feeling of love as the most powerful force in the universe, and the realization that there was something much grander at play in the process of life.

And through these transmissions, as Shawn had shared the desires of his wish about Bobby, the triangle made Shawn aware in this very moment, that there existed a subsequent phase after death. There was a mutual understanding that after several revolutions of the triangles base, that the wish would be granted.

And then something strange happened that disrupted the transcendental nature of the experience and the wish itself.

There's was steely whipping sound as a cable shot out of the darkness. It was a metallic whip. First there was one. Then two. Then three. And then four. They lashed onto the triangle and prevented the base from moving. Then they pulled taught and threatened to pull the triangle out of Shawn's orbit. It was as if the triangle was being both enslaved and humiliated. At once free and then made into a mindless puppet.

21:12, Today: Storyteller failed (no successes) using 4d10 with the World of Darkness nWoD system with a target of 8, rerolling 10s ((5,2,1,4)).

Shawn pulled hard against the artificial force of the steel cables, managing to wrench the triangle away from their iron grip. With that action, he knew that his wish had been granted. But there was something else that he learned, he learned....

OOC: Shawn Rolls Wits + Occult with the following results

0 Successes: Shawn learns 1 thing

1 Success: Shawn learns 2 things

2+ Successes: Shawn learns 2 things and gains a permanent +1 increase in Occult

Shawn knew that the triangle was, in fact, part of a strange transcendental experience. It was the vehicle for his wish to be granted...

And someone had tried to hijack that vehicle. Tried to hijack his wish and steal it away or redirect it to something else. The steel cables were evidence of an external intrusion of some sort. Some other entity had tried to re-purpose Shawn's wish.

Shawn also learned however, that whomever it was had failed. Shawn had managed to push his own will and knowledge to his own benefit.

OOC: Shawn gains +1 Occult permanently.

Shawn felt a palpable sense of relief that whatever had tried to steal his wish had failed. But that someone could do it at all was worrisome. Hadnít Feddler just told him that the wishes were from the Proprietor? Who could be knowledgeable or powerful enough to do something like this?
