A long time ago, Emma had hopes and dreams.
Shed always been somewhat ambitious, so she knew what she wanted ever since she was little. She wanted to be a doctor, she wanted to help her community, and live a good life. So, she pushed hard for it. Shed kept her grades up, she ran for class president, she tried to improve the school any way she could.
However, the truth was, as determined as Emma was, she also suspected her life would be normal. Shed graduate Cochise, go to college and then medical school, maybe meet someone, maybe start a family with them, maybe go back to living on the Luz compound with her relatives. And then shed grow old, and eventually die. Of course, thered been a few times she wondered how much of that was still possible, even back home. Her illness, for example, probably made a lot of that trickier.
It was funny what you think about when youve fallen to the floor from a gunshot wound to the torso.
Emma tried to lift her head up, her vision blurring even with her glasses. Her entire body throbbed with a kind of numbness. However, shed knew whatd happened. Shed been shot, shed fallen on her back, she was
bleeding. From multiple places. Her face was probably scratched up, or perhaps worse. Her leg still had debris sticking out.
She tried to pull herself back up. Put her hands on the floor underneath her, try to sit up. Try to get away. She knew itd make her injuries worse, but she had to get back up, try to escape. Fiyori and Alba were likely planning on finishing her off-
She was done for.
No, she wasnt. She still had hopes, things to do, even here. She was supposed to bury Sabrina, she was supposed to live. She still had things to do, things she wanted to do, things she was supposed to do. People could survive all kinds of things, right? Right? People could live through anything if they just knew what to do, had the drive to-
But could she live through injuries like this?
Emma kept trying to push herself up. She sobbed, she breathed, she gasped. Each time, her arms were weak, too weak, to pull her into a sitting position. It wasnt even like the usual numbness. It was cold-
It was cold. Her heart was pounding impossibly fast. Her skin felt sweaty. She knew her chances were low, even with her racing thoughts.
But she had to keep trying.
A few more tries of getting back up. She dripped blood onto the floor as she did, a puddle forming around her torso and leg. But a few seconds later, her limbs didnt respond at all. She was left looking at the cold gray ceiling, her vision fading in and out. One second it was pure darkness, only for the ceiling to fade back in. She heard her own sobs, felt her own tears.
She had no idea what Fiyori and Alba were doing. If they were going to kill her, if theyd run away, or what. But she had to stay awake, keep going. She had to stay awake, she absolutely had to stay awake. Please let her stay awake.
A few more seconds later, and Emma went silent. She stopped struggling. Her eyes, once filled with desperation, slowly dimmed. Emma lay still, her sisters body laying just a few feet away on a gurney.
If you saw the look on her face alone, you'd think she'd just woken up from a nightmare.

For v6, I have come to a decision. To help lessen character pimping, I have vowed not to talk about my characters, any characters closely related to mine, or any threads I've been involved in, in any of the following places:
- General Discussion thread
- TV Tropes
- Random Thoughts
- Anything else I missed
I am not allowing myself to talk about anything relating to my characters or scenes I'm in unless they are brought up in conversation by another handler. I am not allowed to use my characters' names OOC or mention anything relating to that character until another handler mentions them. This is not currently in effect for pre-game; these self-imposed rules do not apply until v6 starts. However, they will be in effect the second v6 is announced. When one of my characters die, escape, or are otherwise removed from the game, these rules are lifted for that character, and I am free to talk about that character as much as I want. However, the others will have to wait until they too are out of the game.
This is a personal promise I'm keeping to myself for v6. If I break it, please feel free to bitch me out.
Addendum as of v6: I may ask for critiques while a character's arc is ongoing, as long as someone has offered to do so.
Let's show that private threads aren't necessary! I pledge not to start any private threads on island in V6. If I started a thread, you are welcome to join it.
