Xiao Jingyan falls on the Dream SMP
Permalink

He is ordered to return to the Capital, so he does. Whether he looks forward to it or dreads it is not relevant. Whether he honestly prefers exile-in-all-but-name to the borders (it's dangerous, but at least its not a pit of snakes like the Capital) is not relevant. He has orders and a duty, and he will fulfill it.

(At least Xia Dong is leaving just as he arrives. That minimises the amount he has to talk to her, and that's... something.)

The first thing he notices amiss is that his horse trips. That's not completely surprising, even the most well trained and well coordinated horse falls some time. But it still takes him by surprise.

It takes him enough by surprise that the second amiss thing happens. He falls right off, sliding down his horse's neck before he even knows what's happening. Even that is unusual but not improbable. Even the best rider will fall off sometimes.

The third thing, and the one that retroactively makes everything else before it strange and concerning, is that he falls into a hole. A deep one. That keeps going and going and going until he lands-- somewhere. Not the Capital. (He shouldn't be relieved.)

A forest, apparently!

bleedfierceforever joined the game

<Technoblade> so do we just call you “bleed” orrrr

<Tubbo_> o/

He knows what forests are! This... does not explain what is going on. He has... fallen into a forest somehow. And there are people --talking? communicating?-- via mysterious means.

<bleedfierceforever> That's not my name.
<bleedfierceforever> Why has-- *this* decided that's my name?
<bleedfierceforever> Where am I?

(Because "Who the hell are you?" is just not polite.)

<Thunder1408> spawn probably
<Fundy> usually your parents name you but you can change it if you want
<Ranboo> wow so you’re like LOST lost

Permalink

(There’s someone in the distance wearing a strange glowing-purple armor.)

Permalink

<bleedfierceforever> Is that... a country?
<bleedfierceforever> I fell in a hole. I think I am very lost. 

And he is going to put a tree between himself and the person with the glowing armour. (He is NOT hiding. He is taking sensible precautions around someone with unknown weaponry and capabilities, and who he doesn't know if they are hostile or not.)

Permalink

<Ranboo> well its ALSO a country

<Ranboo> i think jack meant the server though

Permalink

Person in glowing purple armor: definitely trying to get line-of-sight on him. They’re being reasonably sneaky about it except for the part where they’re glowing. 

Permalink

<bleedfierceforever>: Server?

They're not getting line of sight on him if he has any choice about it. (Landing in a forest instead of plains: A small mercy.)

Permalink

<Ranboo> um
<Ranboo> oh boy
<Ranboo> phiiiiiilllllll
<Ph1LzA> lmao youre on your own here m8
<WilburSoot> a server is an area that has its own world spawn for when your bed breaks! 

Permalink

<bleedfierceforever>: ...I know those words. But not strung together like that.

(He can't see any tadpoles, so he's probably not at spawn, except for the fact he really cannot be confident of guesses like that and why are armoured people chasing him.)

Permalink

Maybe they just want to say hi.

<WilburSoot> when you die you wake up at your spawn
<WilburSoot> which is usually your bed unless you don’t have one and then you just wake up at the default spawn of whatever server you’re in

Permalink

Well they can say they're friendly then!

<bleedfierceforever> ...in my experience, dead people usually stay that way.

Permalink

<WilburSoot> well canon lives are different
<WilburSoot> if you lose your canon lives you’re dead for real. like me! i’m a ghost
<WilburSoot> usually dying is fine though, i can show you if you want
<Thunder1408> or you can just wait like five minutes for when tubbo inevitably falls off a cliff or something

(There is now a second person in the strange glowing purple armor. This one also has a green cloak and a white smiley face mask. He doesn’t seem to be coordinated with the first person?)

Permalink

????

<bleedfierceforever> I would rather not die, thank you

He still does not trust that the person in the green cloak's intentions are friendly.

It is so much harder the hide from both of them at once.

Permalink

<WilburSoot> good luck!

Permalink

Person #1 gets a shot off on him. It hurts barely at all, even though the arrow lands square in his chest and also appears to be on fire?

And then Xiao Jingyan wakes up in the same place he originally fell.

bleedfierceforever was shot by Punz using [N U T]

Okay, so dying here doesn't actually kill you. (Unless it's 'canon'?) That's... something. He's not sure what it is, exactly, but it's something. A sign that he's definitely in another world?

<bleedfierceforever> Does anyone else want to kill me while we're here

 

Permalink

<Dream> well, if you're offering

It's not really a fight, given the circumstances, but it's enough to give Jingyan the impression that the man (Dream?) would be absolutely terrifying in one. He's definitely a better fighter than Jingyan, and probably one of the best fighters Jingyan's ever seen.

bleedfierceforever was killed by Dream using [Nightmare]

Permalink

He's rapidly becoming very familiar with the area around spawn.

He's going to avoid getting in a serious fight with Dream(?) if he can help it. He is terrifyingly good. Would rank high on the Langya List, except for the fact that's probably not a thing here.

<bleedfierceforever> Is attacking people who we greet people around here.

<bleedfierceforever> I would not want to be rude.

Permalink

<Ranboo> uuuhhhhhhh its not rude to NOT attack people but its pretty common yeah
<Ranboo> especially for new people
<Ranboo> i got killed like four times on my first day but its mostly stopped

<bleedfierceforever> vc2?

Permalink

<TommyInnit> YES
<WilburSoot> tommy i dont think he has a button yet!

Permalink

The first person has left, but the second one is still hanging around. Upon closer inspection, there's a floating nameplate above his head, labeling him Dream. "Do you need some help with anything?"

Permalink

"I'm just getting my bearings." (Because he is not going to interact with someone who can-- and has proven that he will-- kill him if he can help it.)

<bleedfierceforever> What would a button even do?
