[Tetsuo's not quite sure why he's awake suddenly. Suddenly, he's aware that his eyes are open, staring wide into the blackness above him. Beside him, Kaneda's deeply asleep, punctuating the air with incredibly loud snoring. The sound echoes deep, reverberating into his skull like a drill.

But Kaneda's snoring never was that bad before, hell! He's gone to sleep listening to it-

Then a white-hot flash of pain lances across the thought, wiping it clear out of his skull. Tetsuo's hands find his head, trying to keep it from falling to pieces as his whole brain catches on fire. He's not sure when he started screaming; it's only belatedly that he realizes that sound's something he's making, a connection mostly made because of the pain in his throat. Audio distorts oddly, leaving a vague ringing sound underneath everything. And beneath that, a low, maddening murmur that threatens to rip his mind to pieces.

He's forgotten what it's really been like to feel like he's being shredded. ]

[Tetsuo curls up into a ball, shoulder tense against Kaneda's chest and pushing his forehead harder against Kaneda's hand, his hands never leaving his head. His eyes squeeze completely shut, teeth gritted, trying hard to not scream more.

Kaneda's saying something. It's hard to say what that is. His name's in there somewhere.

Shit, it hurts! Why won't it stop?? There's something that feels familiar, but he can't place it. Hell, he can't think at all like this, adding panic to sudden pain, and the only thing keeping him at all together is that Kaneda's right there, one arm around him. If he could just - ]

It hurts!!

[He cries out again, riding out the latest storm long enough to manage more words. Kaneda's voice is gentle and quiet in his ear, helping stave off the worst of any feedback. His hands clutch at Kaneda with a death grip, desperately trying to hold onto him, too afraid of what'll happen if he lets go.]

My head... like it's tearing apart!
iamtetsuo: (oh no)

[Pain twists his thoughts into a single line, distorting his perception into waves of layered realities. It's only when Kaneda's hand takes hold of his bare left wrist, putting a weirdly familiar pressure across it that Tetsuo's able to make the connection he did. Just like that, clarity's able to penetrate the fog in his head enough to explain what's happening.

That's right... it'd hurt like this before. A long time ago!

Struggling to straighten doesn't get him all that far. He has to trust Kaneda now... who knows how long the attack will take this time? So he does, urgency tinging agony in his voice. There's one person who can make it stop now. He'd already destroyed the resonator. He's got no choice.]

Qu-Qubit...
Get Qubit!! Hurry!!!

[Meanwhile, in De Chima... Qubit's actually asleep when the texts come in. Or he was, anyway. At first he thinks it's Newt, since... who else would bombard him with these rapid-fire messages at godawful in the morning? What time is it?

But the caller ID says it's Kaneda. Why would... Concerned now, he reads the messages, and his stomach twists.

Tetsuo. His powers are back.

Qubit scrambles out of bed, tapping out a quick reply. And grammar can suck it, he's in a hurry.]


OMW. 2 mins.

[It's actually closer to three or four mins, though, before the bright blue glow of a teleportal blinks into the room and Qubit steps through. His clothes are all wrinkled, since he just grabbed whatever was closest, and his hair gives new meaning to the term 'bedhead', but he's here, and he's got a new resonator in hand.]

[Tetsuo's doing his best to practically burrow into Kaneda, teeth gritted, face a mask of pain, one arm wrapped tightly around Kaneda and the other latched onto his head. There's none of the wounded animal attitude Qubit saw from him before; just a mix of pain and panic.

He barely seems to react to the flash of light; it's possible he missed it entirely with the way he's trying to cancel out seeing anything.

Notably, it doesn't even seem like anything has broken yet, including Kaneda - but that's quite possibly just 'yet'. There's definitely a feel of things being very,very off in the room, like gravity's not quite normal here, or something about the air pressure feeling wrong...]
superposition: (But now you know the truth about me)

[personal profile] superposition 2016-01-21 06:09 am (UTC)(link)
[In some ways, the situation's better than Qubit expected - nothing's broken, nobody's dead or missing limbs. But the potential's very much there, he can feel it just beneath his skin. It can't have been long since this started, but Tetsuo's already like a superheated liquid, where the slightest disturbance could bring him to an explosive boil. Disarming a bomb isn't far from the truth.

Qubit puts a knee on the edge of the bed, extending a cautious hand to Tetsuo. And really hoping this won't result in him losing the hand.]


Tetsuo. Give me your hand, Tetsuo. [Urgent, but not especially loud. Since, you know, startling him seems like kind of a bad idea.]
iamtetsuo: (Overdid it by a little)

[personal profile] iamtetsuo 2016-01-21 06:17 am (UTC)(link)
[Vaguely, Tetsuo's eyes open, taking stock. That voice sounds familiar... oh. It's Qubit. Exactly who he needed.

Either that was fast, or he's spent an eternity coiled around Kaneda hoping the pain either stops or kills him. It's impossible to tell right now.

His arm doesn't move ,but his head shifts, pushing itself into Kaneda's chest, trying to use external pressure to help alleviate the building fire in his head. His hand - the one Kaneda had his hand around before - reluctantly lets go of his hair, shakily extending towards outwards as directed.]

[Qubit takes his wrist to steady it, and clips the bracelet into place without fanfare. With a little whirr, the resonator comes online - it'll take a few seconds to ramp up to full power, but the relief should be immediate. He doesn't let go right away, though, watching Tetsuo's face closely in the dim light.]
iamtetsuo: (Can the world stop existing for a bit)

[personal profile] iamtetsuo 2016-02-12 02:05 am (UTC)(link)
[Tetsuo doesn't snatch back his hand. He lets his wrist hang limply in Qubit's grasp, body sagging against Kaneda in immediate relief. He rubs at his head, hand coming away slicked with sweat when he lets it fall.

The only sound from him is harsh breathing as it gradually lessens.]
