[ It's a rare evening indeed when John can sleep long enough to dream about things, even rarer that he doesn't quite wake up from it. Perhaps it's the City's influence, or perhaps he's finally tired enough for his brain to catch up with his body, but he does sleep and he does dream and he doesn't wake up from it for hours.

It should be a pleasant surprise, but it isn't, for those who are walking in them.

His dream is obviously a dark and dreary laboratory straight out of a sci-fi horror game where the player holds a gun and gets to shoot whatever creepy-crawly is walking in the shadows. There are many, and John himself is holding his weapons in his hands ready to attack anything and everything leaping up, trying to claw his face, his skin, his limbs off him, trying to turn him into one of them.

It's a labyrinth of danger, and for now, there's no end in sight.

In the haze of it all, dream!John is aware that there are people that have come inside it, his mind adapting that they've been here all along for some reason - so enjoy the ride while you still can, because this is his world and you're not getting out of it any time soon.

Just keep close for now, alright?

( OOC | pictures linked are basically what the zombies looking like - the first one is a human in the middle of transformation, so icky! john's dream is basically your very own zombie sci-fi video game, the objective is to stay alive before you die or turn into a zombie yourself, obviously.

john is out to find his sister in his dream, and a few of his former teammates may make an appearance as semi-zombified versions of themselves that john/your character has to kill. have fun!

[ from 11:10 - 12:26, we're taken back to the time when john and his team were simply headed toward mars, for their mission in olduvai.

what's shown through the video isn't much, but it tells everyone about the kind of company that john keeps (they're not that great), as well as a welcome example of about the ark's technology when it comes to transporting individuals from one planet to another (through a giant water droplet that absorbs them from one place and spits them back out in another). there really could be worse things to show. john is currently trying to bring it down, but based on what he's seen on the network last time, there really isn't much he can do about it but answer questions - or ignore them, either way.

( OOC | !! video content warning: vomiting. !! and if the video doesn't work for you, i'll find something else. )

[ what's up, poly? now that the pirate shenanigans are over, you're very much welcome to the usual sight of our dear fountain bringing in another one of those new arrivals, the side of their face just barely in view of the screen.

or are they new, is the question (yes they are).

the man who appears on the screen is probably a familiar face to a lot of people, but there are notable differences: he looks just a bit younger for one, his face covered with facial hair, his hair cut shorter, blood all over his face and uniform (mostly his, yes, but they've healed, so don't worry), and he's seems less - angry. more hardened, really. less 'i don't have time for this bullshit', and more 'i don't really need this right now' - if you catch my drift.

plus, he's carrying an assault rifle in one hand. that's not something that the good old country doctor does, is it?

Could do with a better welcoming committee.

[ charming, isn't he?

but really, no one answered his question when he started asking around, but that might have something to do with the fact that he looks less than friendly in his standard uniform. anyway, he's been duly informed that asking through a 'network' will give him his answers, so here he is.

How about we start with the question where the hell am I, and then we'll go from there? If there are any devil dogs around, oorah. [ he says it with a deadpan expression, then cuts the feed. ]
