Dream of the Dragon

Postby mkapache » Tue Nov 04, 2014 5:07 am

I dream of the dragon. It rises when I sleep, trumpeting the beginning of the end.

Work seems pointless when the future is so dark but what else can I do. Ella, my wife, has started to see the cracks. I'm showing the strain. I see her worried eyes when I pour just one more drink, trying to dull the vivid memories of my visions.

I see the bleak future, what will become of the human race. I see what rises from the depths.

I dream of the dragon and the dragon knows. The dragon waits and dreams of me.

I really like this! :D Nice and Lovecraftian without the purple prose. The atmosphere reminds me alot of a short story by Chad Fifer of the HPL Literary Podcast from ages ago, although his one is from the Dragon's perspective. Heres a link, I think you'd enjoy it. http://hppodcraft.com/2010/11/17/this-hpllp-life/

Understated simplicity. I like this a lot.

Thanks, unreliable narrator. I'm checking it out now. Always love finding a new podcast to check out. Just heard about the Tor.com podcast from the latest drabblecast and now this. Chalk today up as a success!
