Power of Dream

Marble, table salt, green food coloring, cold water. Why does that work? Is it the marble? A precise balance of basic chemicals? The food coloring?

Would pink salt work, or does it have to be plain table salt? Can iodized salt work? What about other food colors? Does the water have to be cold, or will warm water work better?

It slows it temporarily. For a while, but not for good. A stopgap measure. It's good. I can't deny that. For now, I'll base my work for a cure off of what Robert's provided. Better to work with what we've got before striking out on my own. ...I just realized who I sound like with that. Jay'd probably laugh his ass off at little old me playing at scientist.

The only way to try this is to... to have no other choice. And it's risky to test it. One screw-up, one reversed effect, and someone's life is over because of me.

I don't want to think about that right now.


  1. you will explain now before you pull a 'me'.

    And Maduin's a bit closer to Jay's....interests I think, than you are currently.

    glad to see you're hard at work.

    also like the labels of this post.

  2. I'm not going to test it on myself. Unlike you (no offense), I'm genre savvy enough to know THAT's a bad idea. (And I don't need the stopgap. ...Hopefully I never will.)

    Glad you like the labels. Helps to keep my thoughts in order to slap tags on everything. Nice and orderly that way.

    Think each part needs to be tested by itself. That way, it's easier to chart what variable causes what effect. Just like in science class, you know?

  3. Hey, I don't regret my risks, but I am glad to know not everyone is as foolhardy as me.

    Now THAT sounds like Jay. He's with you in spirit, you know.

  4. Someone has to be the voice of reason, you know. :)

    I know. And I'll make him proud.

  5. I knew Robert chose the right lady for a Sage.

    You can do it.

    A Keeper

    The concoction sounds good, but have you heard of musical therapy? I'll talk to Hosozuruki about this later, but any form of soothing music does calm the mind. It may help with the process.

    Try the Song of Healing from the Legend of Zelda series.

  6. I think the marble is important. Marble is metamorphosed limestone and he has me stationed in a limestone quarry. I don't think that's a coincidence.

  7. I think I'm in way over my head I've been reading the blogs for awhile now. . . I was careless and have now been pulled in. I need help.

  8. and here's another one....

    wow Slendy's getting either anxious or greedy.

  9. Hello
