While I said I rarely dream I had 2 in a row and this one was insanely long, its also another case of a dream character where you control someone else with their own likes/dislikes. As always feel free to come up with a name if you read it instead of the date (18th October 2017). Why the hell can I write these but still can’t get myself to write stories…
“I also had a dream today but it was rather patchy and had many branching paths, the main part of the plot was that I was an assassin sent by a king to kill the brother of the currently wolfman leader (basically just people with wolf ears and tail) by using my masterful transformation magic to turn into one of them.
However despite literally being one of them (temporarily) I was arrested almost immediately after arriving as they’d already been informed of the assassination attempt and my scent was singled out (kinda sad since it just after buying something from a market stool).
I was seemingly knocked out and dragged into a huge well decorated room possibly in a palace, I awoke to see a beautiful women with snow white hair and an odd pearl white dress who not only was the leader of them but was also referred to as the moon princess a few times and her 2 guards as well as as few around me and one holding me. Despite being sent as an assassin my pain tolerance was apparently low and I soon told them everything after my tail was stepped on by a much bulkier one standing behind me. This obviously angered them on top of the fact I was partially distracted by the moon that you could see through a huge skylight(?) in the middle of the room.
Then began a long sequence of torture either chained up in a small cell or put into an unfair fight in the coliseum. Notable prison stuff was I started with only cuffs but got angry when the jailer came and dropkicked the bars so they chained me up in the air. Surprisingly no talking despite other people likely being there. Also they removed my ears and tail at first but reattached them (somehow) after realizing how sensitive I was there. The first time in the coliseum was me vs the strong one with the beard although instead of fighting me directly he shrugged off my attacks and lead me into a trap where one of those metal teeth things leaped up and grabbed my tail. While I was in obvious pain (even if it was a dream and can’t truly feel it) and panicking plus yelping I believe the man said something along the lines of “Oh, you almost make me feel sorry for you” before I collapsed and woke up in the cell again. Although it was the only time he did it and the other times were usually fights against him without weapons however once I had weakened from starvation I was pitted against animals like boars (but not normal ones) the idea being if I caught one I’d be able to eat it but I was in a hunger fueled frenzy and didn’t really put any thought into it and kept missing (at one point leaping from the side of the coliseum walls in the hopes of catching it by surprise).
Between this there were a lot of times where I’d look at the moon and a few hints that I’d end up being a white wolf like the leader but whenever that happened the dream seemingly reset a small bit as if happy-ish endings weren’t allowed or something (for now).
Oddly I didn’t die of starvation but turned into an actual wolf to conserve energy, this was also when they decided would be a good time for me to die. The idea being that they released me into the hunting grounds giving me the very small chance to hunt something myself before they catch up. However just before I catch a rabbit a spear impaled me entering my lower right and exiting just below my ribs on the left (not sure how I’d know), I carried on running even though my vision was fading and my feet no longer touched the ground only catching a glimpse at my killer before dying (that same one with the beard).
I then awoke (still in wolf form) in a field of flowers, for some reason I couldn’t tell if they were white or colored but they were beautiful. They had a calming scent to them inviting me to rest within them free of all my worries but it was short-lived and I soon awoke back in the forest surrounded by the other wolf people, I (now humanoid again) almost immediately asked “Why?” and looking back its a little creepy how much I wanted to stay dead and how I’d love to see those flowers again.
Well it wasn’t all torture though, once the moon princess aka the leader learnt that I had seen the field of flowers but wasn’t left alone it was judged that nothing else could ever be so cruel (apparently). I was then offered a small home to live in temporarily as they make preparations to allow me to leave.
There was a timeskip (obviously) and the suggestion I had lived there for months oddly enough in the small town area I was originally caught in. I was friends with most of the people and no longer enemies with that bearded one which was nice. There were even hints that the leader had been visiting sometimes to keep an eye on me or something.
Strangely that wasn’t the end yet, to my surprise that stuff about the moon and becoming a white wolf became relevant. It was the night where I was leaving and I was being escorted out of the small kingdom through a forest. It was a full moon and I remember noting that at this point I’d honestly want to stay since the kingdom I was originally in would call me a traitor (plus there were hints I couldn’t become human again and the bearded guy was getting worried that I was getting overly friendly with the leader). While entranced by the full moon I remember I strange feeling as if my whole body was being refreshed, that bearded guy looks at me with surprise and a bit of anger before sighing and carrying on walking (the other ones escorting being completely quiet), my hair had become completely white in an instant and I was possibly a bit taller too. It was obvious that he assumed the transformation was just me messing with the same magic that turned me into one of them in the first place. Although that was proven wrong when I reached the border, as we tried walking out a mysterious force held me back. The bearded guy thought I was playing around and tried grabbing me causing the invisible force field of sorts to throw me back with force. This caused their jaws to drop in sheer surprise before he explains that while the white ones are loved by the moon and blessed with both powerful magic and long lives they were cursed with the inability to leave the kingdom. There was also a hint that it was rare to the point where they’d be paired up with the princess or prince whenever they appeared and the royal family had survived on this for a very long time (oddly I never saw her brother or her parents despite them all being apparently alive and no one was named not even the obvious god they must have). Also the dream ended almost immediately after coming back and surprising everyone especially the leader, from what I can tell it was probably happily ever after from then on.”
Seriously though there wouldn’t need to be that much changes and I could use the above as the base of a short story or something, there is so much to it to the point there were even a few details I remember that I left out because I couldn’t remember the exact time in the dream they happened (for example there was another assassin sent after me who laughed at me while I was in jail but was apparently later found out and swiftly killed when they tried and failed to silence a civilian). Perhaps if I can fix said writing block I’ll give adapting it a try.
