Summary: Myca Valeth has a dream: and in this dream, he meets a most curious young man.


Myca dreams of walking down a long hallway of mirrored glass and harnessed lightning, his image reflected back a thousand times, light dancing off the edge of the glass. Somewhere, far away, he can hear someone singing, soft and clear.

The hallway opens into another room, more glass reflecting back, the light soft and dim.

Standing in the center of the room is a slender young man, dressed all in black, with short dark hair and slightly almond-shaped dark eyes hidden behind slim, square spectacles, holding a large book in his arms. Beneath his booted feet, shards of broken mirror glimmer, glass like fallen stars, and a large, green cloth frog sits on his shoulder.

(there is power in him, if not quite the same kind of power as his father: both lesser and greater.)

The young man meets his eyes and smiles, sadly, and opens the book. “I’m sorry,” he says, as the ink runs like tears down the pages, swirling into nothing. “I’m so very sorry.”

The man may be sorry, but I hella am not. I really enjoyed reading this!

Ooh, excellent self-insert! Your poor characters.

And then the plushfrog looks at him with its cute, sparkling, eldritch eyes and speaks one terrible word: "Ribbit."

Well, maybe not. I like your description better.

The image of the green on his shoulder was vivid. I liked the description here.

And a great idea, though my characters would probably punch me in the face.

This is AMAZING.

(incidentally, I love how many of the self-insert fics are deeply apologetic.)

*GLARES POINTEDLY AT SHADOWSONG*

ahem not that I'm bitter about how she treats one of my favorite of her characters or anything.
