Dream SMP has a visit from a goddess
Permalink

A woman sits on the edge of a cliff and watches a sunset. The sun's the wrong color, and the ocean it sets over isn't comprised of salt water, but if she just tells her brain to shut up in favor of playing pretend, it could almost be like Earth. Like she decided to just go watch a sunset, and when it's finished she can turn around and grab her bike and go home. That everything will be just as she left it. But if getting home were so easy, she wouldn't be here. Maybe she's been away for so long, changed herself in enough ways, that it won't be home when she gets there. Probably. She's pretty different, now. But as things for a baby eldritch cosmic horror to aim for, 'reconnect with home civilization' isn't the worst one. Maybe if she's lucky her parents and sister will even still be alive. Maybe if she's luckier, they'll even still recognize her.

Bah. What is it with sunsets making her so gloomy? This was supposed to be a nice thing, and it took some work to find a good place to watch a sunset. Wallowing in misery isn't the worst pastime ever, but it's not one she likes to make a habit of. It's uncomfortable. Not a bad place to visit, but a terrible place to stay. When her mind is free to be built in whatever direction she wants it to be built in, it pays to have good mental habits. If she wanted to, she could remove them as things she could feel entirely, but - well, there are so many things wrong with that idea she doesn't even know where to start. What she needs is moderation, and moderation means self awareness and thoughtfulness and, occasionally, not letting loneliness and sentimentality ruin a perfectly nice pretty thing that reminds her of her (once) home.

Easier said than done, though. She sighs, then stands. The novelty's worn off. Time to go. She'll leave a piece of herself to finish watching the sunset for her, and then she'll move on. This world's nicer than many of the others she's been to, but she doesn't want to stay here any longer.

Maybe she just needs variety; she feels very much like she's stuck in a rut and isn't actually going anywhere. Ever since her first (original, human) body was accidentally incinerated when she moved it from one dimension to another with a bit too few safeties to prevent such things, she's been very careful about not going anywhere too weird. But maybe that's a mistake, now that all of her is safe and she's just... sending out little shards of herself to connect back to her consciousness. Maybe she needs to try for somewhere weirder. Okay, well, weirder she can do, she guesses. She'll just reach out in a dimension-direction she's never gone before, and go see what it's like. Maybe it'll drive her insane or something, which would suck, but isolation and loneliness and boredom also drive people insane, so. Really none of her choices are any good.

"Bye, pretty sunset world," she says to the empty ocean with a wave. A small mote of starscape detaches itself from her jacket to finish watching the sunset for her. She won't pay it any more personal attention right now, but she might as well finish watching in case she changes her mind.

And then she lets her human-esque form melt into a starscape to make it easier to go some place that might be very weird, and gets to going to someplace weird.

And someplace weird she is.

There's a dragon. There are strange tall black humanoids. There are towers. The weirdest thing, though, is that everything seems to be entirely right angles--the terrain, the beings, even her form.

A being appears in front of her.

<DreamXD> The End is off limits. Visiting the End is against the rules of the server.

And then she is somewhere else-- a forest, it looks like, though everything is still cubes.

This is definitely a very weird place to suddenly be!! It's a bit rude to be suddenly moved from one place to another, but. ... Okay?? She can figure out how to get back there if she wants to, and... yes, she can figure out how to just go back without going through the End (which is a dumb name), so she will not break any more rules.

Why is everything cubes. This is very confusing? Wait there's a place she can talk does that mean there are people, someone just enforced a rule on her so that implies people!

Oh. She wanted to talk to the being. That's kind of sad, that they just left. It seems like the one talking in the talking place is a different person, since apparently everything is attached to names (and hers is still terrible, she sets part of her mind to figuring out how to... fix that.) and this one is different from the one that told her the End is off limits.

Still, she's nonetheless thrilled.

<ItsFundy> yes i'm a person

<Ranboo> wait, are you a person

<Ranboo> also how do I pronounce your name

<Yvette> There we go! That's pronounceable, right? :D?

<TommyInnit> you heard me bithc

<Ranboo> welcome to the dream smp i guess

Permalink
<Yvette> Technically speaking no I didn't, and furthermore while I did perceive that, I didn't understand it. Thus the 'pardon.'

<Yvette> Also? Rude.

<Yvette> I imagine someone like you would find me so, yes.

<Yvette> Hi! :D

<Yvette> Goodness, this is very exciting, how many people are even here??
Permalink

<Ranboo> uuuuuuh about 30 i think

She indulges in hopping up and down in excitement and cackles outloud. Or, well. Tries to. It's not really clear if she manages it or not, this is a very confusing dimension.

<Yvette> SUCCESS! Sort of! Sort of success! Okay so where are you, people that have not been rude to me, can I come see you?

<Yvette> I have no idea where I am.

<Awesamdude> what are your coordinates?

Permalink
<Yvette> How... do I check.
Permalink

<Awesamdude> you just have to think about it, it's a little unintuitive at first but you'll figure it out

Permalink
<Yvette> Okay. I'll give it a shot, thank you.


She attempts to think about it!! Where is she. Does she have coordinates???

Wh...at.

She has no idea what any of this is. While she could ask, she's curious and wants to figure it out on her own. It's an interesting problem. Targeted block is... what she's facing, she's facing a tree. A spruce log. The numbers after it are probably its coordinates, right? What happens if she looks down at the... block below it? Is that why everything is cubes, everything is divided up into blocks?

Aha! Progress!

Okay, and if she takes a single step to the left, do the numbers at the top change? Because those seem like her coordinates.

Permalink

Yes! The XYZ changes to 53.686 / 64.000 / -101.125 . Nothing else changes.

Permalink
<Yvette> Found it, thanks! 53.686 / 64.000 / -101.125

And just for science, if she takes a single step forward, which number changes?
