Today I had a dream that was kind of all over the place but almost cool when it started doing that inventing-dream-technologies thing that happens in so many of my dreams.
The dream started with me finding some kind of VHS tape of an old megaman cartoon. I was a teeny bit over-excited about it. I knew that such things had not really been good from what I’d seen of them, and my brother said/gave some vibe to the effect of “haha, you care about missing that old garbage“, but still I was going to put it in.
I had a dream that I… uh… became Garfield But the weird thing about it was that I had only become Garfield in the future, due to some decision I had made in the past. It was some kind of karmic punishment or something.
I wasted zero time figuring out how to get back to the past and break the Garfield curse, which was apparently accomplished by retreating to the cat bed in the far room and sitting in it. …At least, that’s what I really hoped would work. After a few attempts I figured out how to shrink to a small size along with the bed.
In Nassak’s story, there’s kinda this little exposition sequence that tells the story of how Vergoszya oppressed Mazzul, and it’s kinda supposed to evoke the style of a Bible story a little bit. It’s in draft like most story things in Stablehand but the gist of it (or the important part) is this
People (to monster snakes, desperately): What can we do to keep you out?
Vergo: You must build walls. Many, many walls. All over. Through everything. Separating everyone from everything and blocking everyone from everybody, so high that they even block out the sun. Make a tower of walls. A tower of towers of walls.Vergo: When you have put walls around everyone and everything, we will not breach them.
But of course the snakes are gonna come back anyway using the walls as an aid to corner the people
It just occurred to me today
They promise they’re not gonna break the walls but that doesn’t at all stop them from coming in over the walls
What if when they were invading, there were just these dark clouds of Portent hanging over the city and Portensilisks very literally rained out of them from the sky
