Joyful Sighting

By xavoneir on May 6, 2018 8:44 pm

"Leaning against a concrete wall, wincing, and bleeding profusely, you spot something remarkable through the haze blurring your vision. In the distance, a large building with a dome similar to an observatory atop it crumbles to the ground. After a short while, you see a figure emerging from its ruins. It is approaching you. 'Surely this person is against the vagabonds that brought me here, since they destroyed one of their buildings,' you think to yourself as the figure draws nearer. The thought occurs to you that this person may be able to heal your likely fatal injuries. Despite the excruciating pain, you cannot help but find yourself grinning in unstoppable joy. The feeling washes over you, cleansing you of worries and encapsulating you in a shroud of confidence that you will somehow survive all of this. With heaving, pained breaths, you find it in yourself to chuckle under your breath. Slowly, the chuckle builds into a full-fledged laugh, which is cut short when the feeling suddenly ends. You snap back into the reality of the situation. Your fate is now resting in the hands of the stranger approaching you."

This week's track was meant to be happy, without much else to it other than something fun and enjoyable to listen to. While this happiness isn't a particularly meaningful emotion in terms of the story, it is more of a reactionary joy that was kicked into gear in order to avoid falling under the ailment of any psychological vices. I suppose this also gives some insight into about how warped the main character's mind is after experiencing all that they have so far.
