Chaos at the Winter Ball

This was supposed to be the highlight of the year, and I can sort of understand why.  Big formal party with food and dancing. Everyone dressed up in their best, often new, clothes.  I find events such as these tiring. So many people. Often lots of noise as well, conversations, and music and all the echos of a large space. Too much to keep track of.  And of course all those people, at least one third of the school I'd guess, crammed into one room however large. It's too much.

And so I escape at the earliest opportunity. Said I was going outside for a smoke.  And to be fair I did have one or two while I was out. And then a couple of other professors came out and decided to join me in smoking and of course we end up talking. And talking. It's really damned cold out here but I've been quietly dealing with that and it's mostly okay, except that I'm going to have to go in soon before someone notices. Oh well, at least that way I can get a drink.


Head back in only to wonder just how much time I spent out there. It surely can't have been all that long. The Ball seems to have almost disintegrated, Almost no one is dancing, And a number of people seem to have left. Or are leaving, at speed.  I can hear yelling and I think I can see what might be a fight on the other side of the hall. I move farther in trying to get a look at that, because if it is a fight i'm pretty sure it'll be part of my duties to try to deal with it. I don't want to, but if no one else does that makes it my responsibiltiy. Damnit

Sweet Dreams lyrics

Turn the lights on!

Every night I rest in my bed
With hopes that maybe
I'll get a chance to see you
When I close my eyes

I'm going out of my head
Lost in a fairytale
Can you hold my hands
And be my guide?

Clouds filled with stars cover your skies
And I hope it rains
You're the perfect lullaby
What kind of dream is this?

You can be a sweet dream
Or a beautiful nightmare
Either way, I don't wanna wake up from you
(Turn the lights on)

Sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare
Somebody pinch me
Your love is too good to be true
(Turn the lights on)

My guilty pleasure
I ain't going nowhere
Baby, long as you're here
I'll be floating on air
Cause you're my

You can be a sweet dream
Or a beautiful nightmare
Either way, I don't wanna wake up from you
(Turn the lights on)

I mention you when I say my prayers
I wrap you around all of my thoughts
Boy, you my temporary high

I wish that when I wake up you're there
So wrap your arms around me for real
And tell me you'll stay by side

Clouds filled with stars cover the skies (cover the skies)
And I hope it rains
You're the perfect lullaby
What kinda dream is this?

You can be a sweet dream
Or a beautiful nightmare
Either way, I don't wanna wake up from you
(Turn the lights on)

Sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare
Somebody pinch me
Your love is too good to be true

My guilty pleasure
I ain't going nowhere
Baby, long as you're here
I'll be floating on air
'Cause you're my

You can be a sweet dream
Or a beautiful nightmare
Either way, I don't wanna wake up from you
(Turn the lights on)

Tattoo your name across my heart
So it will remain
Not even death can make us part
What kind of dream is this?

You can be a sweet dream
Or a beautiful nightmare
Either way, I don't wanna wake up from you
(Turn the lights on)

Sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare
Somebody pinch me
Your love is too good to be true
(Turn the lights on)

My guilty pleasure
I ain't going nowhere
Baby, long as you're here
I'll be floating on air
'Cause you're my

You can be a sweet dream
Or a beautiful nightmare
Either way, I don't wanna wake up from you
(Turn the lights on)
Either way, I don't wanna wake up from you


Turn the lights out!

Beautiful Nightmare

Story idea: The lord of nightmares attempts a romance with a lucid dreamer

Right now this is all i've got but hopefully I can do something with this. I keep wanting to do something with the song i've attached this entry and maybe a couple of others that are dream related. and sketchavember is coming up fast. most of my artistic ideas seem to be writing related and so maybe this year i'll be doing a bunch of little writey things for it and might manage to make it all the way through the month by doing something related to art on each day even if it's  various different artistic things, draw if I feel like drawing, write if I feel like writing. and plot if I have nothing else I can do that moves anything along.

Wednesday September 17th, Just after dawn
Damien's apt


Never have I been so glad to wake up.  I look quickly over to John's side of the bed, but he's already gone to work. and i let out a shaky breath. Something is terribly wrong with the dreamlands. It felt something like the dream that had everybody trapped in one big smooshed together dream, but worse. As if maybe some one had managed to burst all  the dream bubbles that kept all the dreams from bleeding into each other and the real world.

I shiver as I slide out of bed and reach for my clothes, something, maybe just the lingering sense of how wrong things felt in the dreamlands, still feels wrong.  It makes me want to hurry up and get into town, to see for myself. Even though i'm not due into work for awhile yet.  Instead I make some coffee and go out on the balcony with it and my smokes.

Normally this would make things better, the coffee and smoke would blow away the last images in my head and I'd only have whatever bruises or cuts i'd gotten in the dreamlands. Instead things feel more dreamlike rather than less.

I remember the way the dreamscape lingered hungry and empty after that big dream. And what happened to Nanshe. I find myself testing whether this is in fact a dream. I will my wings to appear. And feel a shiver at my back but no wings. That hasn't happened before. Before either I was dreaming and could control some of what happened in the dream or I was awake and could not change things by willing them to.

Something is very wrong. I finish my coffee and my cig and grab my coat, preparing to go fins out what. At the last minute I also grab the dream compass. Maybe it will come in handy.

Saturday, the twelfth of June [day three hundred seventy seven] late afternoon in the Market


Winter is long gone and summer is just around the corner, and it's making me feel a bit restless. Makes me miss the endless days on the road that was my life for the last three years. Never thought I'd actually miss them as I spent far too many of them missing Manhattan. Even the rain this morning couldn't keep me inside and I'm glad I stepped out for a smoke when I did as I caught sight of the all too brief glory of the rainbow.

I didn't want to spend the rest of the day inside missing all that fresh clean air and the people who would surely be at market so as soon as I finished my smoke I got my guitar and soon as it stopped raining I set up in the market at the corner much like I did when I first came to town. Since I can't stop thinking about it, my first song is old tune that's had many different sets of words matched with it. This time I use the ones I learned from the Riverfolk on the boat that brought me here.

One song becomes another and another and before long it is late afternoon. If I want to buy something for dinner I should probably do it soon before it's all gone. With that that thought I pack up and start wandering the stalls.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another.

 Night of  Monday April 12th [day 316] 
    Dreamspace

Ever since Kate asked me for news of Nanshe I have been looking for her in dreams. And have not found her. I do not know if I should worried yet.  It hasn't been that long since I started my search.  Really, it hasn't.  So why do I feel this sense of urgency? As if the longer the search goes on for the less chance I have of finding her? 

I had thought that with having met her and our exchange of gifts that it should be easier to find her in dreams, for usually the dreams of those I am close to are easy to find, but maybe it is different for her as she has no dreambubble of her own. Or maybe She walks farther than I can. Since I took up this search I have been coming home earlier from the Tavern and took a few nap during the day to see if that made any difference.

I wish I could use the compass in the dreams but it doesn't seem to point anywhere specific when I try to use it. And in the waking world it just sits there. That's a thought, I should try using it in the waking world if I don't find her tonight.  What if I can't find Nanshe in dreams because she has crossed to the waking world? 

Either way I should tell Kate what I think. But only after I have tried both ways. I don't want to look like an idiot or as if I'm coming up with excuses for failure. I fly through dreams of clouds and ships looking for any hint hat she's here.  I seek and do not find. Maybe I'm doing this all wrong!

I bank in a wide loop and drop down til I am back in my own dreamspace. I fashion a mountaintop and settle. Take a deep breath and call out, "Nanshe! "

Two crazy possibly horrible thoughts

 Could Damien maybe kill Phobetor by the power of unbelief? and by doing so might they not become the new Lord of Nightmares? After all someone needs to do the job? and this can be considered a possible way of passing it on.
