*Infinity grins* I know. That was great. I should do that again sometime.
*Aeon, completely ignoring Infinity, tilts his head ever so slowly to the side* I do not believe you need to “get to know me” as you already know us. That being said, your presence could be useful in defending ourselves. We our vulnerable and weak, split as we are like this. And Eternal has no powers to speak of whatsoever. He is a weak and useless mortal without us. Perhaps you could helps us keep an eye on him as he seems to disagree with our existence. …perhaps I should retrieve him from Ghost’s home, he would be much safer here in the valley…….
Ooohhh, I see, I’m just same old, same old. Yeah, well, fuck you all too. This was a lot more fun when I got some damn RESPECT. Many I should just pop back into that old meatsuit. Now THAT was some fuckin’ drama, heheheh…
Infinity, you will do no such thing. Besides I doubt you can possess someone in your current state.
Watch me, Goldilocks.
I do. Constantly. You’re a terrible nuisance. *Aeon switches his attention to Kodak and stares unblinkingly at him* And I am not, as you say, “new”. I have been here this whole time, I have always existed. But this is my first time with my own…physical existence, so to speak. We are still learning and our powers still surprise us. When I arose to defend against Infinity’s possession against Ghost, it was a surprise to all of us. We were not aware that we were capable of such things. And now we are.
Not as new as you actually showing your feathery ass up here, brother.
Eternal is lying facedown on the bed with his head in the pillow, on top of the blankets, the epitome of someone having the worst day of their life.
He doesn’t move when Ghost asks him the questions.
But he does let out a very long, muffled, groan that would have made any disillusioned and angst ridden teenager proud.
You don’t get it.
I haven’t been human for…for I don’t even know anymore! Over a seven hundred years or something!
All this time I slept and I ate and I did human things because I wanted to keep some part of that alive. I wanted to pretend I was still human. I wanted to remember what it was like to me human.
But I forgot anyway.
I don’t need to breathe and sometimes I forget to. I don’t need to eat and I’ll go weeks without food and think nothing of it. I don’t need to sleep but I do it to relax. I don’t need to drink or shower or anything, I just do it because I can and I want to.
Those things are necessary for humans to live but I…I didn’t need to do them. And I knew it. And now I’m mortal. Stuck. I’ve forgotten what it was like and I didn’t even realize I had. It’s hard. And it makes it all the more harder because I wanted so badly to pretend I was still human somewhere inside me, to pretend that I wasn’t just a demi-god, a forest spirit, a creature of nature and energy and life.
I…I wanted some part of me to still be human even as I put myself above them. I wanted to hold on to a little bit of my humanity yet because…I was afraid that if I didn’t then I would forget myself, my past, what I’d done. And I was afraid that I would…that I would…drive everyone away. I was afraid they would leave because I was so obviously different from them.
I should have known better. I was never human. Maybe once, a long time ago, centuries ago, when I destroyed everything and laid waste to the valley. Maybe I was human then.
But I’m not now.
Even like this, I’m not human.
My body might be mortal, it might be flesh and blood and beating heart and starving for oxygen and in need of food and sleep.
But I’m not.
I’ll never be.
Not ever again.
*he shrugs, grin falling into a frown*
Aeon’s a pretentious, stuck up, dick face.
*his grin widens and he leans against a tree, arms crossed loosely over his chest*
Ain’t just me here, sugartits. Scaletits? Eh. Anyway, Aeon’s here too, the stuck up ass. Terny’s run off to Ghost’s; bit of a shocker there since we still kind of hate him.
You can just hang with me, iffin’ you want. I can have fun.
*he winks suggestively*
Heeeyyy, it’s Snakes for Brains!
*Infinity steps out of the shadows, grinning, showing all his dagger sharp teeth*
Long time, no see, Gabby. What’s wrong? Couldn’t be bothered to deal with the mess we’d become?
