And so, Thysbae, or rather, Adora, adventured into the Trial of the Together.
And he did not venture in alone, for the man only known as Soldier decided to take up Adora's offer to stay with him. So Soldier followed. As the pair arrived, they'd find themselves first, in quite a state. Soldier, was quite how he knew himself. But Adora would find that he was accompanied by several copies of himself. And Adora would find that for the first time ever, he was alone in his body. For each of Thysbae's personalities had a body of their own now.
Around the Thysbaes and Soldier were transparent scenes that were playing out, though they seemed to have a set length for they would reach an end, and then begin a new. Every space not occupied by one of the holographic memories was darkness. A man with a beard was playing with his dog and daughter off to their left. To the front of them, a younger version of the bearded man, though clean faced, was herding some sheep under the moon. To their right, the bearded man was crying over an older woman's bed.
All throughout the trial were many scenes playing out of this bearded man. And the Thysbaes and Soldier would find that they could enter these scenes and become a part of them. Over the entire area though, a single phrase kept being uttered. "Who am I?"
Meanwhile, a thought entered Adora's mind, "Can you let me in?" Various, similar thoughts invaded the mind of the other Thysbae's as well, and the refused to relent.
"Why won't you let us in?"
"We just wish to be with you.
"It would be fun"
"What's the worst that could happen?"
They would not force their way in, but they would not stop asking either.
