I'll respond to things tomorrow here in the OOC. Really knackered right now, but wanted to say that if I misunderstood something about the mind and stuff that made it something you weren't keen on, just lemme know, and I'll fix it, soon as my brain have gotten a chance to rest.

Alright, ready to answer things. And very sorry for not answering things on Tuesday, though worry not, I would have agreed. What you set up were great. :) As for the plausibility of things, we have so far established that there are certain loopholes in their curse that can be exploited if you know exactly what you're doing, and it stands to reason that if Selena can get in, she too can escape. Provided that the circles do not get ruined somehow, in which case they'd likely have to be remade before she could bridge an escape route.

That being said, loopholes sounds too easy, so let's say that when she does eventually escape, it's gonna be really painful. Not just the uncomfortable kind that have happened on entry. Think of it as the tricks employed being less like a surgeon's knife, and more akin to a sledgehammer, as she does in some way need to force her way through, and the curse makes it impossible to be gentle. Just a suggestion anyway.

Now, for when it got trapped, I think that will depend on what deity 900 failed. They've been in many, many places, but... We could tie it in with one of the bad memories that torments Null. Say, one of them - not gonna say where though - would show a situation where Null either had to do something drastic, or make some kind of sacrifice (you can think on whatever really, as I she will do literally anything if it means Void lives, and always have been, so get creative if you wish to make your own memories somewhere in there) and in the moment, unbeknownst to her, 900 would have seen his chance to slip through.

Likely it would have to do with some sort of situation that meant she could not be expected to notice, like say, she failed getting someone out from a tunnel before a large rock came down and crushed them right in front of her. Said being might have been holding some sort of artifact that upon breaking, would bash a shockwave towards not just her, but also the rest of the tunnel, likely crushing countless others. She might play it off cool, but she does feel pain when seeing someone who doesn't deserve to die perish, and the horrors of it all, combined with the shockwave might have left an opening not only in her mind, but her curse, however brief it might be. Or 900 got smashed in there by accident, Anyway, just the first thing that came off the top of my head.

And to explain the setting I made for her mind, I figured you wanted a representation, and Null is pretty messed up inside. Anger keeps her somewhat focused, but she's broken, and barely keeping it together. With hope having left her mind, there's not any real light to shine over the shattered landscape either, and as for the mannequins, I thought of a few things whilst writing, but I set on those eventually, as they'd kinda represent her. Just getting through like nothing bothered them, but have a look beneath the surface, and you'd see the crumbling mess beneath, complete with the emotions that ran through and potentially some thoughts out loud for good measure. Her mind is basically populated by these figures, carrying pieces of herself upon their damaged forms, and almost all of them holds memories of pain that she can't let go off, and doesn't know how to share and seek help with. They're just weighing her down further.

For fun, there's some good ones here and there if you really look. Not a whole lot, but then again, I don't know how long you will be there, so eh. :)

And as a last bit, the platform they/she starts on might be barren, but others will have spotted vegetation, pieces of buildings, snow, etc. It depends on the area and situation where the actual things happened that lingers with her. If you find one with a lot of sand, you'll likely run into the one where they thought their parents died, as well as where they lost their limbs, as an example.

Again, not sure if this is what you wanted, but I did what I could think off. Feel free to correct me on some things if it is.

Really I'm impressed, I think you captured the image rather well. I was thinking much of the same things as I was thinking about what to write.

As to 900's entrance, we'd have to have a similarly extreme effort or force that got it in there as it is for Selena to get in. We could say that 900 was bound to the powerful artifact, or controlling the one holding it when it was destroyed, and the magical shockwave then propelled 900 into Null?

As to Selena's ability to get in/out, she was only able to get in because 900 was already there, if it wasn't there to unwillingly be the other half of the bridge it would have taken much more effort to get through. As to her getting out it will indeed be quite the effort, but similar to the first effort with her and Illiad being the two halves of the bridge.

I'll have my post up momentarily, as to moving forward Selena has two objectives, find 900 and contain it, and find Null to try and heal her. We'll see how these play out.
