Plot:Dream of Me

“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.”
T.E. Lawrence
White Coral Bells
Summary

xxxxxOn a sunny afternoon, the day after our late spring heat wave finally broke, Hyacinth Ridge was a peaceful, quiet place filled with people out and about doing perfectly ordinary things...until an oddly dressed stranger jumped out a third story window, landed as if it were no worse than a hop down from a curb, and strolled around the side of the mansion to disappear.

xxxxxGawkers caught some of the aftermath on video, and things almost came to blows, but sadly, due to distractions, no one was able to identify or catch up with the perpetrator. The only item left behind at the scene of the crime was a single sweetly chiming bell made of white coral.

Upon a Slender Stalk
Summary

xxxxxA Saturday evening in the commercial district rapidly goes wrong when a young woman of college age tries to hang herself from the rooftop of a building at a busy street corner. She appears to have been whipped hard enough to flay her skin open, blood staining her nightgown and dripping down her legs enough to leave thin trails of drips where she walked over the roof, but the nightgown itself is completely unharmed. She has no memory of why she was trying to kill herself, and no remaining urge to do so, nor any idea why she had wanted to in the first place.

xxxxxThe only information revealed was the presence of a man whom she had met before, though she wasn't entirely clear whether or not she had met him today, shocky memory faulty. Life is seldom as good as one dreams it is.

Lilies of the Valley
Summary

xxxxxPictures go up on social media of an alley between two shops in the East End of Hanging Hills, mysteriously swarmed and overgrown by lilies of the valley. Impossible lilies of the valley. Out of season lilies of the valley.

xxxxxAn eighteen year old girl is found huddled behind a dumpster in the alley, somehow connected, by dreams, to the flowers, though she doesn't know how, and the prospect terrifies her. Rebel, another young woman, has also been having disturbingly similar dreams... Further research is warranted.

By my Garden Walk
Summary

xxxxxOn a sunny Father's Day afternoon, which also happens to be the Summer Solstice, a number of people found more evidence of the mysteriously appearing flowers growing along the hiking trails at Freedom Hill National Park. When they followed the flowers, however, they found more than they expected.

xxxxxDue to careless wording on Rhiannon's part, she is now bound to the service of a True Fae for a year and a day, but the mystery of the dreamgiver has been revealed: it IS this Fae, who commanded Rhiannon to refer to him only as Lily. Questions, remain, however. What is Lily DOING?

Oh How I Wish
Summary

xxxxxA day of mixed rain and sunshine on the boardwalk was the setting for a spot of misadventure. First, a nameless young man acts like a sleep zombie and shuffles his way across traffic, trying to get into an alley. Gert, who happened to be there already, stopped HIM from passing, but missed Rebel entirely, the Nicks woman suffering from the same dreams as the (NPC) man. She walked too far into the Hedge for Nanette's powers to help, and the two changelings, Dottie and Gert, made an effective team for her retrieval.

xxxxxThe world also got to see Dottie Skinner in the buff, seeing as the consequence for magical transformation of her clothing into a ball gown was the immediate ripping and removal of said gown. Rebel was saved...for now...but who's to say the dreams won't guide her right back to the gate, all over again?

That I Could Hear Them Ring
Summary

xxxxxA pair of teens innocently selling lilies of the valley and white coral bells, sourced from "a guy" who "had tons" to give away turns into something quite a bit more dangerous.

xxxxxRebel Nicks, drawn to the rental behind the teens, is dragged into a hedge maze -- and the Hedge -- by an unknown figure in white. At first, it seems like an abduction, and those left outside the maze attempt a rescue, but it soon becomes clear that the silent stranger herself is attempting a rescue...a rescue, sadly, doomed to fail. The Fae known only as 'Lily' arrives, bestowing his fashion sense unto the group, a gift to Rebel, and pain to the flowery woman. Her connection to the Fae is still unknown.

That Will Happen Only
Summary

xxxxxTraffic in the Division has been unusually high. To the Changelings of the city, notably, the traffic has been high near the entrance to the local Goblin Market...which may or may not be a GOOD thing. High traffic tends to mean Big Things are happening, or might happen, or have happened, and the rats are leaving the sinking ship. Or crowding up to the buffet, depending.

xxxxxRebel Nicks was drawn away into an alley by an old, ferociously revolting woman (with breath that nearly keeled Nina right over!) and given advice, as well as the key to getting into the Market, but, thankfully, wiser heads prevailed, and she was prevented from any such shenanigans. For now.

When the Fairies Sing
Summary

xxxxxStrange lights in the hills of Crow Hollow, not to mention the swarming and dancing of the entire murder of Crow Hollow crows around said lights, attracted a small crowd of concerned parties to spend their Wednesday night hiking up a trail-less mountainside to reach the source.

xxxxxUpon reaching the location, players find a ring of small brown mushrooms surrounding a ring of prickly bushes and a clearing filled with dancers, some mortal, some not. After a bit of confrontation, wolf growling and an herbaceous tiger the size of a truck, it is discovered that the Fae who has been causing all of these problems for the past 28 days is skipping town tonight, to die and be reborn again a century hence.

xxxxxAlso that he is a sneaky cheater who doesn't want to get pounced by giant tigers. Also also that because the tiger did bite him, the first time, said tiger has narcotic Fae blood in his mouth, a syrupy goopy sap which tastes sweet and is a potent drug.
