Dreamwalkers

Chapter 195

“About what -” Dyllan paused and took a few steps away from the edge of the floating island. Cedric’s sudden appearance had nearly made him lose his footing, and he wasn’t eager to fall off if he got surprised again. “About what happened inside your Nightmare. I wanted to ask about what happened inside your …[continue reading]

Chapter 194

“Ha ha, very funny Dyllan.” Andie showed an unamused frown – an expression she rarely wore and an adjective that almost never applied to her. “I’m being serious.”“So am I!” Dyllan made a clumsy, offended, and confused sort of shrugging gesture. “No one gets more excited about doing dreamwalker stuff than you! I swear you’d …[continue reading]

Chapter 193

For a moment, Andie just wandered around the island, let herself soak in the atmosphere of the mindscape, and enjoy the pride of a job well done. Well… Dyllan and Cedric had done most of the heavy lifting this time – but she’d never dismissed the importance of their contributions when she’d done most of …[continue reading]

Chapter 192

Andie wandered over to the edge of the flying island she was on, then took a few steps back as she stared at the island Cedric’s Dream had gestured towards. Could she make that jump? Yeah, she could make that jump. Probably. Eh, even if she missed it’d be fine. Actually, did she even need …[continue reading]

Chapter 191

Cedric’s Dream and Andie stared at each other for a little while longer before Andie finally had to admit that, yes, this thing was definitely trying to ask her to move. That… couldn’t be right, could it? Mindscapes may have been “real” in the sense of being factual and important, but they weren’t real real. …[continue reading]

Dreamwalkers

Chapter 190

A moment of stillness swept across Cedric’s mindscape as his Dream analyzed its surroundings, but then the Dream stopped in place – its eyes locked onto one of the mindscape’s islands. The air next to the island started to ripple, giving way to a pair of floating hands. They were made of the same darkened …[continue reading]

Chapter 189

As Andie let her eyes wander around the mindscape, she started to notice something flowing – moving independently of the wind. It was gathering in the center of the mindscape. It was Will to Live, and she wasn’t the only one to notice its flow – all the clockwork birds in the mindscape had turned …[continue reading]

Dreamwalkers

Chapter 188

The library reminded Andie of the comic shop she had landed near when she first entered the mindscape. Yet, it was fundamentally different. The air was warm, smoky with the smell of a wood fire. The heat soaked all the way down into your bones in a pleasantly comforting sort of way, but Andie could …[continue reading]

Chapter 187

Andie paced back and forth anxiously. Sometimes you just needed to sit back and let people fight their own battles. Sometimes a symbolic gesture was the only kind of aid you could lend. Sometimes, helping wasn’t helpful. She knew that, she understood that… but putting a problem in front of Andie and asking her not …[continue reading]

Dreamwalkers

Chapter 186

Cedric steadied his breathing and kept his eyes tightly shut as he stood there, just… waiting. It took longer than he’d like to admit to remember that illusions made by any part of himself – Nightmare included – could be dispelled simply by disbelieving in them. All he had to do was open his eyes …[continue reading]
