Fixation on death aside, this is lovely —Soge, accidentally describing my entire life

A journey has been made, but Im not sure where it brought me

This was a interesting piece. Part of me would have preferred it to end on a sadder note, but I like the twist.

Be careful on what you wish for.

Charming little story, quite coherent all the way through. Impressively succinct as well; didn't feel like it overstayed its welcome. Emotional, bittersweet, and skilfully written.

Not sure if I was as sold on the ending though. Felt like the emotions might've been more poignant if the full consequences had been untempered.

Still a great story in any case. Short and sweet.

I hope it brought you something interesting to think about.

Yeah I guess it could have ended sadder. But I prefer happy endings, or at least slightly positive endings.

I had let this story stew a little in my mind until I had that ending. To be honest, this story is mostly from thinking on my own life experiences and extrapolating on them in strange ways.

I myself don't really dream. I've researched Lucid Dreaming and tried all sorts of methods but I can't get past that first step of "dream recall." I'm sure I have dreams, but I never remember them. And the only dreams I actually can remember are my childhood nightmares. Combine this with the fact that I have a very good friend that has the most fascinating dreams and I can't help but feel a tiny bit jealous.

It was only when I realized that even though I don't really dream, I can still think and imagine my way to worlds that others merely dream about. It helped me to appreciate more what I can do, rather than what I cannot.

Suffer not the evil you are but the good you can become. Right. Back into fight I go.

I like it. Well written.
Well done.

;_; im so flattered that you used my art for your cover art <3

Thank you for painting her! It must have taken a long time to get that skilled at art.

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it!

Go! Fight! Win!


only a year or so, no biggie ;)


Just a year? Wow! Great job!

Interesting dilemma.

On one hand, taking away his dreams stunted his emotional and social growth.
On the other, the only experiences with dreams he had were nightly, terrible tortures. With nothing to offset that, he would have gone insane.


There was a lot of room for other possible options, given time I think Luna might have been able to figure out why the colt couldn't remember good dreams. But he kept consistently asking to have his ability to dream completely removed that she eventually gave in.

But was removing the nightmares worth removing the dreams entirely? It's a choice I still wonder about.

Short and sweet. I listened to the linked reading and thought you and The Crystal Maiden did a wonderful job. Bonus points for those excellent strings in the background :ajsmug:

This was a very nice story. I would almost consider reading this to my future children.

Well done, have a 100th thumbs up!

Sadly, the link to the reading does not work for me: not only the video doesn't play, the UI below it does not download either. All other youtube videos seem to work fine. Even downloading websites can't fetch the video. Could you check if it works for you, and consider reuploading if not?
