AMBER SNIPPY'S FATE?

Thu Oct 18, 2012, 10:35 PM



I've had that dream again.


That strange place, so distant, yet so close to my heart. Buildings as tall as mountains.
Dead structures, watching with dead eyes. Empty, vast and endless honeycombs of stone and steel. Air filled with gray ashes, always fluttering from the cloudy sky.

The black vortex opens up in the sky, descending down to the city. The vortex spiral rips the city apart, bending the air itself, feasting on light, feasting on time.

There is a lonely figure standing in the street.
No matter how hard I try to make out his or her expression, I cannot. Is there no face there at all? Or perhaps there is a million human faces there, intertwined and flickering in unison, as bright as the light of ten thousand suns?
The being stares into the abyss of the vortex.
It takes another step towards it, into the horizon of nothingness, into a place where nothing can exist.
The stones of the roadway beneath its feet crumble and flutter in the air, colliding with each other.
Has it no fear of the black void? Perhaps it thinks that the void cannot affect it?
But, can it affect the void?

I suddenly realize that the being is searching for me, and that I am its servant.
The faceless one speaks.
It plans to drink the vortex dry.
It plans to find me.

...The faceless one will surely take me away from my home.

I awake, covered in sweat, my heart pounding, terror gripping my mind.
I have to see my Angel.
He always calms me down in time like this.

For me, mirrors never work right. The surface of reflection doesn't show me what is, but instead reveals a reality which runs in some kind of twisted parallel to ours.
Perhaps for me, the mirrors are so thin that they reveal the true manner of things?

All my life I've seen my black and white knight in reflective surfaces and mirrors.
As far back as I could remember it, the knight was there for me and I could admire his wonderful and strange armour of black and white patches, his face-shield made of materials foreign to our world, his gorgeous lenses of blue cobalt, as sparkly and blue as my own eyes.
This is nothing odd, my father had told me - he is your guardian angel, and he is always watching over us.
You should be proud to have an angel, in these dark times of despair.

If it wasn't for a hired painter, I would never know what my face actually looks like.
I caress the surface of the mirror, seeking solace.

Oh Angel, my Angel
Wherever you be
So calm so serene
Always watching over me.

My brother? My lover?
My heartstrings aflutter
So close, yet so far.
My knight, my guide, my star.

Could you, would you tell me please?
Would you put my mind at ease?
What will my tomorrow be
What fate awaits me?

Amber Snippy is so pretty! :love: Ms. Snippy will not escape Zee Captain if he really wants her to come to him though... but how will Snippy (our favorite Sniper) react when he sees an Alternate version of himself? (I'm guessing that Amber Snippy will be ecstatic to see her shining knight-angel, but he might be all like, "Bwah?!", and Zee Captain will be all like, "Now I have 2 Snippy's! :dance:")

Hm, I think I need to read the wiki again, though. I can't remember if he said if its his ancestors or his past lives...

I'm not sure... though, one may argue that it could be both; that Snippy and his long-ago ancestor are the same person but in different times & under different circumstances

It's better to know know that fate, but let it come to you instead.

that video is more than 1 year old now, but Captain already has his red cancer scarf there - coincidence or planning ahead? ;)

if the link doesn't work just look up romantically apocalyptic on youtube it should be called "que sera"

In that video Captain also already had the red scarf even before Cancer appeared in the storyline. And from 1:29 it says: "These are what we built / These sexy machines indeed / They'll do all our work for us / And think for us from now" -> Annie. I wonder if Captains past also is exactly what's told in the lyrics... ;)

Zee Captain's mind is quirky enough that his/her narrative should probably not be taken at face value.

Though he somtimes seems to be quite intelligent and to have knowledge of things everyone else doesn't... We'll see, since Alexius seems to have it planned years ahead.

You guys should read the RA wiki. According to that, these have been Sniper's ancestors. xD

...Upon further inspection and thought, I'm incorrect. It would appear that all incarnations of Snippy throughout time are unable to see their reflections, instead seeing Charles D Snippy reflected back at them. This also meshes interestingly with the inability to ever see Snippy's fully revealed face.

Who's perspective is true? What is the true Snippy, and what, exactly, is Zee Captain? I don't have the answers, but things have gotten much more interesting.

I think that the Snippy without the mask is the past, the snippy with the mask is the present, and the girl snippy is just a bystander watching it all unfold.

Possible, but then why do both the caveman and the girl have Present-Snippy as their reflections?
