PostSubject: The Tundram Asylum (Open)   Thu Jun 30, 2011 8:25 am

In a solitary room, lay a clipboard and pen: A young girl, dressed in white, laid in a white bed. A few others lie in beds around her. Moans and whispers echoed throughout the room, but the young girl lay still and quiet.

The girl rushed over to grab the pen before she entered again.

Success!

She grabbed the pen and slid it into her sleeve before jumping back into the bed. Heels clicked on the solid white floor, growing closer and closer. Then, she entered. The woman smiled at the girl, grabbed her clipboard, and walked out. The door closed with a loud click, and the room was silent again.

Sliding the pen out, Sophia grabbed it with her hand and walked over to the other side of the room where her roommates lay locked in bed.

"I have it," she told them excitedly.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This seems explanatory: Kids are in an asylum (whether or not they are crazy, need help, or were just thrown in because of their parents), and the kids want to break out. Some will go as far as to kill to get out, whereas others may not mind staying.

Each room holds 3-6 patients. If you have a psychotic illness, you can be housed in a single room next to this one. Otherwise, we're in the same room.

Feel free to add to the story and turn this into a crazy conflict-filled story. That is what makes this fun. Add supernatural powers later on, add in some Max Ride things, vampires, history of abuse, etc. Make this YOUR story.

One rule: No godmoding!

Bio:

Name: Sophia Leanne Lockwood
Age: 20
Appearance:
Why are you in Tundram: Borderline Personality Disorder, or rather, what-isn't-wrong with her. BPD patients have similar mood swings to those of Bipolar Disorder. They are often ones who self harm and feel negatively about their appearance or themselves in general. Often times, this disorder leads to bulimia or anorexia. Insomnia is not uncommon. Major Depressive Disorder is usually the main diagnosis. Individuals with BPD usually have four separate mental health diagnosis before they are diagnosed with BPD. In Miss Lockwood's case, she has been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder with self harm and suicidal tendencies, Dissociative Disorder, and several classifications of Anxiety Disorders such as Borderline OCD, Panic Disorder, PTSD, and Social Anxiety Disorder.
History: Sophia has been living at the hospital since she was 12. Her parents had her admitted when they could no longer care for her at home due to her many mental ailments. She has an older brother, then 16, now 24. Her first illness had been PTSD due to sexual abuse, followed by depression. As she aged into her older childhood years, other illnesses became apparent. And by ten years old, she had been diagnosed with three of them. During her stay in the hospital, they diagnosed her with more and more. Finally, at the age of 16, they had stopped adding onto her list of crazy.
Personality (optional): It completely depends on the moment. Her moods switch very often, despite several efforts of finding a mood stabilizer.

Name: Dorian Emiliano Felice
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Appearance:

Reason for Placement: Extreme insomnia caused from recently watching family die in a major car accident. Seeing family walking around and talking to him despite them being dead.
History: Grew up with parents that arrived in America from Italy, and as such, he still carries a strong accent, along with speaking italian fluently. He lived an average life until the car accident, average grades, slightly above average relationships (Lasting longer that six months in any case), and held an average job. Then his family died on their way to pick him up for a family visit, in front of him. A semi-truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and ran them over. The load the driver was carrying was highly explosive. There wasn't much left of either vehicle but pieces scattered all over the road.
Personality: Used to be friendly and playful, but is rather brooding as of late, and slightly irritable due to lack of sleep.
Other: Carries a large silver cross with him that belonged to one of his relatives before they died.

"Congratulations, it's a pen." Dorian responded, barely raising his head to see what she was so excited about. He didn't really look up very often. It was too strange seeing his family walking around the room with him, especially when he knew they weren't there. "When it turns into a bottle of Jack, let me know." He grumbled, closing his eyes again, hoping for just a few seconds of sleep.

Sophia ignored Dorian's snide remark. She then began unlocking the straps one by one. There were six beds in the room, however only four of them were in use. Sophia unlocked the other two before walking over to Dorian.

"Are you ready, or do you want to wait for a bottle of Jack?"

Sophia nodded in response, as if seeing ghosts were a completely normal occurrence. She unstrapped him and then headed for the door. Peering out carefully, she saw an empty hallway leading to another hallway. Thankfully, she knew the way around fairly well. That is until they would get to the lobby or another exit. It had been too long ago that she walked through an exit. It was about time.

She waved for the other three to follow as she crouched down slightly and walked carefully along the hall to the right. The tricky thing would be for none of them to have an episode during their escape. She had relayed the plan to the others several times before. If one has an episode, the rest will leave. It had been agreed upon.

As they snuck past other patient rooms, they rounded the corner heading to the right again. This was going past the nurse station, but hopefully the night nurse was doing a round in the solitary rooms down a separate hallway.

They were in luck. The nurses station was empty. Waving the others forward, Sophia slithered behind the nurses desk and grabbed some of the 'emergency' medication which was not locked. She grabbed as many bottles as she could, and made sure to grab only ones she knew the others and herself took. Just in case, she told herself. She really hoped she wouldn't need any of them anymore. Though a huge part of her knew this was wishful thinking. Maybe one day...

Continuing behind the others, she handed each two bottles and motioned with her finger to her lips to be quiet with the pills. Almost home-free, they were about to enter the lobby. Any other exit door would likely have an alarm. As they approached the swinging, but locked electronically doors, Sophia noticed something alarming.

A button needed to be pushed, most likely at the nurse station, to allow anyone out. The station was quite far from the doors, and most likely anyone who would push the button would not make it. Sophia looked around in panic at her three roommates.

The older woman, Janisse, shook her head furiously. Obviously they wouldn't be able to get her to do it. Not that Sophia wanted any of them to. She had hoped she would be able to get all of them out. Together. But clearly someone would be left behind.

"I--I'll do it," said Travis. the other male. Travis was such a gentleman. He always tried to help when he could. It was so sad he had come to find comfort in this place. Until recently. He was 19, a hottie in Sophia's book. Light blonde hair, fair skin. Gorgeous green eyes. He had only been with the rest of them three months. He had been switch out of the children's ward when he turned 19. He had been there about a year before that.

Despite the short time together, Sophia had taken a liking to him. Immediately tears welled up, and before she could protest, Travis was running back to the station. She bit her lip to keep from yelling after him, and he hopped through the window. It only took him a few seconds to find the button. He looked up, smiled, and slammed his hand down.

A quiet buzz filled the empty hall and the doors opened. Travis waved as Sophia dragged herself through the lobby doors. She would never forget his sacrifice. She mouthed a thank you, and straightened herself up as they walked into the dark lobby. It was after hours so there were no more patients being admitted.

She rushed out the front doors, which were only locked from the outside, thankfully. As the doors flew open, a freezing cold gust blew her hair back. She shivered, but immediately stretched her arms out in acceptance of the wind.

"Let's hurry. We owe it to Travis to get away from here."

Thus, began their journey.

"...We owe it to Travis to get away from here."

Dorian scowled and shook his head. He could have suggested pinning the door open so the idiot could get through behind them, but he didn't. He wasn't sure why, although it was likely that it was because he simply never liked him.

"Woods then for now." He growled quietly "We stick out too much in the open, have to be careful until we get some new clothes."

They all agreed and moved toward a wooded area to the right of the building. Sophia never thought much about what to do once they were out. So for now, they would head to the woods and try to find shelter under some bushes or near a large tree. Too much of this wind would make them ill pretty easily.

They headed over to the woods and walked for a bit in silence. About twenty minutes in the woods, Janisse spoke up.

"I-I'm go-going to go. I h-have a fami-ily." She looked apologetic and began to move away.

"No," Sophia said, "you can't! We're supposed to stick together!" Almost in a panic again, Sophia urged Janisse to stay. She turned to look at Dorian for help.

Dorian shook his head, stopping to face them. "Let her go. With any luck, if she gets caught, she'll be a distance from where we're going. They'll be searching for us in the wrong place." He stopped for a moment. "Although, if you do want to have any chance of making it, I suggest you stay for the night. The search is always the most fierce directly after the escape. You'll have better luck in the morning when anyone that would be searching for us is tired."

Janisse nodded and thanked Dorian for the advice, completely ignoring the fact that he basically had said she would make good bait.

Depressed by the way their escape was going, Sophia shrugged and slumped down against a large tree. She looked at the several pill bottles in her hand, tossing the two she knew Janisse took. Then she grabbed one, popped it open, and chucked down two.

Closing her eyes, she sat shivering against the tree and tried to ignore the growing headache.

Everyone settled in, taking shelter behind trees and whatever other cover they could find. It was a long night for everyone, every little sound waking them, and putting them into defense mode. Slowly but surely though, they managed to get some sleep.

The following morning, Janisse shook Dorian's shoulder, careful not to wake Sophia in the process. Raising her hand to her lips she waved him over to an area further away from the main area where they were at. Slowly, Dorian stood up, following behind her, scowling at having been woken up.

When they got far enough away, Janisse turned to face him. "I'm l-leaving now, I just wanted to tell s-s-someone, and I knew if I told S-s-sophia she'd try to s-stop me. I didn't want you t-two worrying about m-me. I-I have to go now, thank you." She said, turning and making her way through the woods, away from where Sophia was sleeping.

Dorian stayed where he was for a little while, not desiring to wake Sophia himself either. After a while though, he decided to make his way back.

Waking abruptly, Sophia was startled awake due to the crunching of dead leaves nearby. She stood up quickly, yet quietly, and turned to warn the others. Upon turning, no one was there. She swirled around in place, but Janisse and Dorian were both gone. Did they leave her? Was this some sick prank by the police? Did they find the other two and were just waiting to pop out and grab her?

Sophia continued to spin around, looking and listening for any movement or noise. She heard the crunching leaves nearing, but she could hardly make out which direction now. Her heart was beating so hard it was almost deafening. Her breathing was coming out in gasps, causing her to become dizzy.

"No, no." She urged herself to calm down to no avail. "Please, no." She whispered to only herself. She clutched her chest, trying to ease the swelling pain from her rapidly beating heart, but she was in full-blown panic mode. Clutching to a tree, she hoped she would be able to hide her breath and quiet down enough to hide from whoever was approaching. Of course, she also hoped it was the right direction to hide considering she couldn't tell where the footsteps were.

Dorian stepped through the trees before noticing Sophia wasn't where she was. "Sophia, it's Dorian. Janisse is gone. We should probably be taking off soon." He said loudly so that she could hear him even from a small distance.

Hearing Dorian's voice, Sophia immediately teared up in relief. She took in several deep breaths before she took a step from behind the nearby tree. No way would she let any of them see her weak. Even if it was just Dorian. Never did she let them see her in full-blown panic.

"Oh. You let her go?" She wasn't happy about it, but she started walking non-the-less. They definitely had overstayed their welcome. It was all ready pretty bright out and search teams might be heading back out soon.

She began heading the only way she knew. Trent, her brother. Though she wasn't going to mention her plan to Dorian. It may sound like a terrible idea, but she knew him.

"Yeah, she wanted to go. If we tried to keep her with us, we'd end up having issues anyway. Better to let her go." He explained. He knew Sophia wouldn't really understand, but it didn't matter. "You know where you're going?" He asked, following behind her. She seemed to have something decided in her mind, only enforced by her marching walk.

Sophia didn't like that he let Janisse go, so she ignored his question when asked if she had somewhere in mind. Walking a few more paces, she stopped suddenly, realizing it had been years since she last saw Trent. Who knew if he still went to the same places or if he still had his own place in Gromoir.

"You know what? Let's just go to Goodwill and find some clothes. If it hasn't changed locations, it should be over this way a few miles," she pointed toward the East.

"Fine by me, I'm tired of these hospital clothes. How do you plan on getting us in and out though?" He asked. The only solution to get clothing he could think of, would be to dig around the back through the garbage and try to find something that might fit them, and he knew that the only thing they threw out were things that weren't deemed worth selling. It would get them by, but it wouldn't be pleasant.

"Well, I figure we could go up and see if anyone left any bags outside. Sometimes they do that," she suggested. "Otherwise, I guess we could try to sneak into the back and grab a bag."

If neither of those worked, she didn't know what else to try. She definitely wanted to get a purse or backpack of some sort too, as carrying around ten pill bottles was awfully hard to do with two hands.

He didn't really have anything to say on the matter after that.

((Lame))


After thirty minutes of walking and an extra 15 for sneaking by highways and busy roads, they arrived at the back entrance to Goodwill. Thankfully, there happened to be three large trash bags full of clothes and a box of other stuff. Sophia grabbed a trash bag and the box and she let Dorian grab the others as they retreated to a wooded area.

Opening the bag she carried, she saw all of the clothes were for an older man. Blazers, dress shirts, unopened bag of socks, unopened bag of boxers, etc. She dug into the box. An alarm clock, a couple men's watches, a hat, sunglasses, a wallet.

She opened the wallet, surprised to see $30 in bills and six different gift cards. Two were for $10, three for $50, and one for $100. Who knew if they were empty. She would pocket the wallet when she found clothes.

((Sorry))


Dorian tossed the two bags down next to Sophia, looking over what she had, before kneeling down and looking through the bags that he had carried. The first had a variety of clothing, a couple of old winter jackets and sweaters, a few t-shirts, and three pairs of brightly coloured Hawaiian shorts. What appeared to be the majority of a persons unused off season clothing.

The second bag was a little more valuable. It contained a considerable amount of women's clothing. Looking over the clothing Sophia had, he smirked "Trade?"

Tossing the bag over to Dorian, she waited until he tossed her the one he had. She rifled through the clothing, settling on a plain white long sleeve t-shirt that was just a little too large, a blue puff vest which was adjustable, so she put it over top the large t-shirt, then pulled on a pair of nice black sweatpants. They were fuzzy and comfy, and didn't look too bad.

While changing, she didn't bother to hide her body, nor did she bother with a bra, considering she was still a bit underweight and her breasts had shrunk to nearly nothing. Not like she really cared. Nobody would show interest in her in a mental asylum.

Once she finished changing, she suggested to Dorian that they should go to one of the stores and see if the gift cards worked.

She found a fake Louis Vuitton backpack and placed the wallet, a couple extra pieces of clothing, and the pill bottles inside, including some extra clothes for Dorian.

Looking over the clothing, Dorian decided to dress in suit clothing. He preferred it. Stripping out of his old clothes, he quickly changed, keeping himself distracted, surprised at her lack of modesty. When he finished, he grabbed the hat and the sunglasses, tossed them on and turned to face her. "So... How do I look?"

"Like an old man", Sophia replied promptly. Hoisting the backpack onto her right shoulder, she grabbed two of the bags and headed back toward the donation doors, tossing them outside where they had been left before.

"Shall we head to," she paused while rifling through the wallet to grab one of the gift cards, "Walmart for $50?"

Nikolai nodded "We could use some supplies, so sure." He replied, wondering what else she had picked up from the bags. Water, food, a tent. Those were the primary things he knew they were going to need, secondary things like deodorant were also on his mind. Beyond that though, he had no idea what else she had planned to get.
