Chapter 216

“Look.” Cedric massaged his temples, not waiting for Andie to refute his previous statement before pushing further. “Do you even know what arrogance is?”Andie’s shadow grinned. “It’s awesome, is what it is.” She pointed at her ego with her thumb. “Don’t know why she’s always throwing a hissy fit over it.”“Thank you for your contribution.” …[continue reading]

“Oh, you’re definitely stuck with this now.” Cedric sat himself down in the shadowy swamp. “You made your monster, now you have to live with it.”“Glad to hear you’re confident enough to joke about it now.” Andie’s ego smiled at Cedric, shot a brief glare at her shadow, then turned back toward Cedric with an …[continue reading]

Chapter 214

A rare bout of impulsiveness overtook Cedric. A dumb thought followed by an even dumber action.He de-summoned his drone and re-summoned it below him, bouncing off of it to put himself into the path of the Dream’s next attack. He closed his eyes once more, this time focusing on his desire to enter Andie’s Dream. …[continue reading]

Chapter 213

Cedric held on tight to his drone. This was probably the fastest he’d ever flown on this thing, and the position required to stay mostly upright on his drone at high speeds was as awkward as it was undignified. Fortunately, Cedric was currently invisible, and even if he wasn’t, the only witnesses would be Andie’s …[continue reading]

Chapter 212

Cedric glanced over at the holographic, icy purple radar that was tracking the location of Andie’s Nightmare. According to Andie, she’d broken into Dyllan’s Nightmare by ripping a hole into it, and Dyllan had gotten into Cedric’s by getting eaten. Both of them had come up with these plans by just “listening to their gut.” …[continue reading]

Dyllan frowned disapprovingly. “Cedric…”“Yeah, yeah. I know…” Cedric did some quick stretches and got ready to head out and hunt down Andie’s Nightmare. “In all seriousness, this actually makes sense. A strong mental fortitude would keep you stable during a single, major traumatic event, but is weak to the steady erosion of constant pressure and …[continue reading]

Chapter 210

“Honestly, sometimes Andie acts like -” Cedric let his gaze sweep across Andie’s mindscape. “- the protagonist -” He couldn’t help but notice how much Andie’s hobbies showed up in here. Sure, it was normal to have your interests show up in your mindscape, but they were usually kept within their own little corner. “- …[continue reading]

Chapter 209

“I just mentioned how the Nightmare’s words stung a little.” Dyllan shrugged dismissively. “Nothing too important.”“Given that mental health directly correlates to our dreamwalker form’s ‘physical’ health… I’d actually call discussing our emotions mission critical.” Cedric gave a short, huffy sigh. “If it makes you feel any better, though, those almost certainly weren’t Andie’s thoughts.”“Yeah, …[continue reading]

Chapter 208

If Andie was so comfortable with her ego – in both senses of the word – why did she label her Vice “Arrogance?” Why use such a word to summarize her insecurity about herself, about who she was? What did her shadow say when using her power, again? “Cut them down, my Arrogance.”So it wasn’t …[continue reading]

Chapter 207

Cedric took a deep breath, then slowly exhaled. His face half started to shift reflexively into a practiced display of emotion, but stopped short. He wasn’t sure exactly which expression or emotion it would have been, since he hadn’t been emoting as much lately. It was nice being able to just quietly feel things – …[continue reading]
