After reading Worm
, MLP Loops
, and of course Erfworld, my brain came up with the following:
I Awoke into an iteration of my time-loop, replacing Taylor. It was night, and cloudy, and I was hiding, looking at a cathedral-ish fortress in a city, mapping it with my bugs. I was trying to rescue Tattletale from it.
Fortunately, I found someone who was cooperative (soon but not right away rationalized as having been replaced by a looper I was friends with). He said he could spring her, but he'd need a distraction.
So I slipped off and made contact with... Gobwin Knob, going to their camp in a sunny field which was suspiciously like one of my childhood neighbors' back yards. Parson didn't want to commit anything since he didn't trust me... since the last time I'd said I had someone on the inside, it didn't work out (apparently, I'm also Wanda). Stanley was also present, messing around with the hammer.
So I head back, and this hunchbacked guy who wasn't my friend brings out someone (presumably but not specifically identified as the one I was trying to rescue), but the sky is filled with gargoyles and other dark shapes, none friendly... dream ends.
Now, it wasn't originally part of the dream, but now I think my friend was Ace Hardware and Armsmaster.
