Poor Fadestar. But I like that she's allowed to be traumatized by such a life-changinge event combined with a near death experience! Just because everything ended well it doesn't mean a person would shrug such a thing off. And with the pressure the whole tribe is under, it's perfectly understandable that her brain is going haywire repeating a scenario that went well and showing it going the worst way possible. Stress is a powerful and horrible factor that can really mess with your head.

Wow, I felt such a sense of anxiety while reading about the nightmare. To think that that might have been another possible outcome of that event is a scary thought. And the fact that she's had this dream several times...poor Fadestar. I hope they stop happening eventually.

That feeling of utter helplessness that she experienced prior to actually being able to save Newt; the stress of that moment, combined w/ the terror of the Fierce Ones... no wonder she's having nightmares! Thank you ladies for depicting the natural aftermath of the traumatic experience.

This story really makes us feel for Fadestar. (and) Identify. You ladies really caught that mood of wakefulness after a dream; when you are caught between what could have happened and what did.

Poor Fadestar! What a horrible nightmare! But her fear of "What could have happened" is very believable, especially since she discovered her powers only recently. I hope it will help her talking to Newt about those fears of failure. He is the walking and talking proof that she is capable of more than she herself believes.

It seems so completely believable that even after successfully rescuring Newt, Fadestar would be plagued by nightmares in which she didn't. That seems to be how it often goes. I know I always get anxiety dreams AFTER a big event that I've been stressing about for a long time. But thankfully Fadestar has people there to help her, even though at that time, the stress of the overall situation hadn't lifted. Good job, both of you!

Yay! It's up and done. As always Linda, it was a pleasure to work with you. I'm glad I could help you shape this into form and I'm glad to see how close these two got over the years.
Poor Fadestar, though, I hope the nightmares end sometimes soon. If not, Newt is always ready to talk to her or take her mind off of things.

Eep! That's some scary imagery in the nightmare. Interesting to have the story along with the picture. It's nice to see her seek out her friend afterwards though. I think this is the first time I've seen Newt described as 'wary' about an early invitation from a friend though!
