Then she wakes up in a good mood the next morning. And in need of a conversation with Boogey.

I think I had a dream about you last night.

Permalink

'Yes. I was there.'

Permalink

What happened?

Permalink

'Something was interfering with your dream. I was wandering, and saw it. I don't know what it was.'

Permalink

Well, thanks for the help.

Permalink

'You're welcome. Thank you for reinforcing me.'

Permalink

I remember something... asking me what my biggest fear was.

Permalink

'I remember being afraid. I am not often afraid.'

Permalink

Strange dream.

Permalink

'Some things can cause them, I think.'

Permalink

I'll see what I can find out.

Permalink

'I will as well, I suppose.'

Permalink

What's cooking the rest of the waking world, then?

Permalink

There's murmurings about bad dreams. Chatter about nightmares and disrupted sleep across the city. Several people woke up screaming, horrified.

Permalink

Does the Nanny have any thoughts?

Permalink

She's worried. Nightmares - that's Boogeymen, usually. She'd suspect a Horror, if the dreams were all the same, but they're not.

Permalink

There's isn't, like, some kind of primal Boogeyman or something, is there?

Permalink

...She doesn't know.

Permalink

That's a little concerning.

Permalink

It is!

There's some people she can maybe contact, but - the origins of the Boogeymen predate her. The oldest crones when she was a new Nanny already didn't remember.

Permalink

Well. One thing at a time. Anything that pressingly needs doing today?

Permalink

Not per se. There's some investigations to do, but - the Crone has a creeping feeling that right now they're waiting for the other side to move first.

Permalink

She's not really a fan of being strictly reactive. How about approaching some of the other powers in town?

Permalink

"We can do that, yeah. Not all of them are very friendly, and I'm not actually hooked into a ton of networks - there's plenty that's slipping under my radar - though I suspect Nausicaa and her Boogeyman know a few folks, too."

Permalink

"Her friends had interesting friends, yes. I might try talking to the vampire or werewolf after school."
