    This is probably one of my favorite oneshots/drabbles that I've ever read.
    I loved the vocabulary that you used and the ending was perfect in my opinon

    One word: wow. That was, by far, the best one-shot/drabble I have ever read O.O You have a lot of talent. I love the vocabulary you used in this.

    That was breathtaking.
    Really wonderfully done. The words, the flow, it was perfect. I love the whole concept of the dream catcher (I had a few as a kid and, while I’m not completely convinced that they prevented me from having nightmares, I’ve always found them pretty to look at and interesting). Even though this piece is short, it says so much and is worded so beautifully and I just love the entire concept. The way it’s presented is a mixture of light and dark; angels and demons.

    The fact that every person reacts the same really shows how terrifying the situation must be, that there is no other way to react, and to be panicked and scared is the only option. And the way the narrator observes, he seems sinister in how interested he is at their panic and rather apathetic. It just seems routine for him, others' mental suffering.

    It wasn’t until the ending sentence that I put all the pieces together, but it summed the story up perfectly. And left it hanging with a very dark feel, such a contrast to the mystical description of the dreams, the state between reality and dreams, and the “gossamer air.”

    It was beautifully written, Erin. :arms:

    :cheese:

    ...God Erin, you have incredible talent. And don't deny it, or I'm smacking you upside the head. :hand: I lovelovelove how you described everything, the beginning of dreams and sleep, and the nightmares. And just all your your metaphors, and similes. :cheese:
    I can't ever write that well, not ever.

    Dreamcatchers might kept the nightmares out, but they let the demons in.

    Peeeerrrfect ending. I love it, really.
    Pfft, and you hate one-shots?
    This is brill.
