Chapter 7: Jade/Feferi
(See the end of the chapter for notes.)
Feferi knows she should feel bad for Jade, knowing the human’s dreamself has passed on, but in actuality, she is quite thrilled. She has spent quite a lot of time dealing with the horrorterrors to make dream bubbles, and she is proud of the progress that has been made. Plus, now that she has been killed, she can enjoy the bubbles all the time to her heart’s content, without worrying what might happen while she sleeps. She wants to share this marvel with her favorite human, when they can meet in person.
She waits patiently for Jade to fall asleep and seeks the girl out. She remembers being there for Jade’s first encounter with the bubbles, when she was still alive, and Feferi hopes to be there for her second, third, fourth, and so on. It only seems right for the two Witches to share this world together.
Feferi finds Jade by reenacting a conversation they’ve already had. For a moment, she nearly forgets where she is, getting too caught up in their shared memory, but it never takes long for the illusion to unravel. Jade calls her “exotic,” and everything is going well until Feferi lets slip that she’s dead. She didn’t think it would have such an effect on Jade, but apparently it’s enough to shock the girl into waking up again. She vanishes, and Feferi is left to marvel at her empty room until it gives way to a memory of Alternia.
She sighs – what a shame that she had so short a time to talk to Jade! – but knows she will have another opportunity. After all, surely the human girl cannot stay awake forever. When she returns again, Feferi knows she will have the opportunity to enlighten her about the dream bubbles, and how wonderful they and the horrorterrors are. And within her dream of the past, she dreams of the future she will have, exploring with her favorite human in the furthest reaches of the outer ring.
All she needs is the chance to open Harley’s eyes. Show her what she’s missing.
And when this happens, Feferi is quite sure Jade will never wish to wake again.
You know when I saw this pairing come up next, I thought it would end up being a cute, fluffy fic.
I don't know what happened.
