>it is a realm beyond rational knowledge, beyond any mortal concept of space or time

>it is a place with only the vaguest concept of form, ever-changing as if on the whims of an artist
>it is the home to all manner of creatures, great and small, innocent and frightening, all as random and incoherent as the land itself
>it is a place none can reach of their own free will, and yet all have been there
>from the mightiest of overlords, to the most inconsequential of paupers
>from the kindest, to the cruelest, and all in-between
>from the most complicated of beings whose thoughts concern whole galaxies, to the most simple who can just barely form a thought
>and even you have been there before
>you would not recall it very well, for it hangs just on the edges of your memory, but when you fell into a deep sleep, you were there
>for it is the Land of the Dreaming

>like all lands, this one has a creator, and a ruler

>this ruler lives in a castle of his own making, all at once crystalline and stone, spectacular and inviting, while cold and haunting
>in this castle, the ruler governs his land and his people - which includes all those who enter it
>he is a quiet, reclusive ruler - respected, but feared
>for few can understand what goes through his eternal, ageless mind, as his desires are simple, while his dedication to his work is unprecedented
>but what would a being such as him do when there is no work to be done?

>often, he reflects on what he has done, for a being as eternal as he has done very much

>he reflects on love lost, on acts both selfish and selfless, on what it means to engage with mortals whose lives end so quickly, on his presence in their lives and their views of him
>and he often ponders on what his future holds, for even a being as old as he will one day reach his end, and what meaning his actions will have when that time comes
>but for today, he decides to pursue one of his favourite hobbies
>he reads

>in his castle is a most special library

>within its endless halls are every book ever written, from the most popular and largely known, to the most obscure and rarely-seen, and even those forever lost to the sands of time
>it also contains the tomes that will be written, whether as early as tomorrow, or as far away as the end of all things
>and it contains the stories that have never been written, that will never come to be, and remain in the minds of their creators, with pen never having been put to page
>for what is a story but an idea someone first created in their mind?
>and what is an idea but a dream that simply took form?

>in this library, he idly picks up a single book

>it is the second volume of an ongoing tale, its end not yet come to pass
>it is both a simple and complicated story
>it is a tale of heroes and villains, and their opposing ideologies clashing in a never-ending struggle
>it is a tale of love, of life, of growth and learning
>it is a tale of happiness, sorrow, anger, and fear
>it is a tale that has been told many times before, and will be told many times since
>and yet, he reads it all the same, and takes no less enjoyment out of it
>for all stories are precious, and are worth telling and reading, as they all mean something special to someone

>he is the Prince of Stories and Ideas

>he is the ruler of the Land of the Dreaming
>he has gone by many names, but you may know him simply as the Sandman
>and like you, he enjoys a good story
>perhaps you will enjoy this one too

>her body finally seemed to relax as soon as the tail was released

No...it ain't that...

>she lifted her head again, propping up her chin on her hand

>she had a light pout on her face as she explained:
Imagine if ya could swing yer dick around lahke a third arm.

Ya'd feel it too when someone grabbed 'old 'f it.
>she let out a sigh, clearly more annoyed at herself than at Albert
It really bites havin' an extra limb an' not bein' able t' use it without puttin' mahself in such a precarious position...
>her tail swished freely behind her, clearly unharmed
>it then swung down, rather playfully "tickling" Albert on the tip of his nose
Good thing it's so useful, or Ah'd have it in mah right mind t' cut it off an' cauterize it. Maybe then it'd learn t' lesson an' stop growin' back.

Geez, now I really feel like I cheated...

>he winced slightly as the tail tickled his nose, given it was still a tad sore from the smack it gave it earlier

>he lightly blew on it to discourage it from continuing, then looked back to Sandy

<"God, I've really gotta stop thinking with-"

>Sandy's grin only grew as Albert followed along with what she was planning
>and of course he would, she knew he was smart like that!

>much as Janice taunted her about it, Sandy knew the upsides of preparation!


>Sandy adjusted her belt as she walked out of the locker room

>her tail swished around with quite the energy to it, which kept pushing the belt around slightly, and make the simple procedure a bit harder than normal

Tha' hole back there wasn' too noticeable, right?

I'm pretty sure by th' time someone comes t' see it, we'll be long gone...

R-Right, sorry...jus' jumpin' t' conclusions, I guess...

I mean, this 's only th' second...or technically third...?

>he paused, then shook his head and dropped that point he was making

Tell ya what!

'Ow 'bout we wash off this stench off'a us, an' Ah buy ya some lunch?

Ah ain't lookin' fer anythin' serious, but tha' don't mean ye're a one night stand in mah book or anythin'!

Yeah, sounds good!

>Maxwell chuckled nervously as Sally's mouth flopped open at the reveal.

Well, yes. I've been taken off of active work for now. This is my new...job. I suppose.

>Officer Braze however, seemed entirely unconvinced by him. This was kind of knocking the wind from his sails a little bit in terms of being this super heroic figure but...Well, if needs must. Maxwell knew he didn't have any ID. His badge hadn't been properly issued yet and the suit itself had nothing built into it to save it being more of a useful tool in the wrong hands than it already was.

>In which case, co-operation was surely the best path in order to make sure that this went as smoothly as possible, as somewhat disappointing as it was. Maxwell cleared his throat, and managed to pull back some of his composure to address Officer Braze properly.

My name is Maxwell Enfield, state attorney. Currently assigned as an experimental crime scene investigator under NRPD jursidiction. I currently have no ID capable of proving that, however I would be happy to accompany you to the station so that we can affirm that I am being truthful.

As I understand it, this dispatch was rushed out in order to minimise the potential for casualties, hence the lack of identification. Nonetheless, I understand your position and submit myself to your judgement.

>Actually going through the motions of being clear helped to clear his head, though Maxwell still looked more exhausted than Sally had ever seen him. Not really a surprise considering what had happened, but all the same, it was...frightening and captivating to have done what he had.

>And oh so gratifying to be able to nail a criminal himself, without worry of anything like loopholes of corruption. That he had managed to save someone with his own two hands in a way that could never be taken away.

>Maxwell was starting to get an idea of just exactly why the Heroes did what they did. He could grow to like this.

>the nights were never fun, having to curl up in his bed all by himself, with no one in the immediate area that he really knew
>and there had been one or two times where he called home, feeling stupid for even doing so but lonely enough that he just wanted to hear from his family for a few minutes

>that's what went through Zach's mind as his eyes fell on another early bird in the cafeteria

>he definitely didn't know this person, but from the looks of it, he was eating by himself

OH! Not a whole bunch, to be honest!
>Zach quickly answered
That's why I'm out here makin' new friends!

All I've been doing recently is play videogames, work on my fanworks and art, and more videogames, and hangin' out with Api-chan and Zappy-chan a lot!

I needed a bit of a break from the routine! Head out there and do something new and fun, and I always have fun making new friends!

How 'bout you, Pakkun? Do you have fun making new friends~?

>It was also legitimately strange, in hindsight, just how may feet in the air Yuri jumped when Meredith all but materialized next to her.

Ehhh. Lots of practice. You try sneaking in late when you're built like this.

>Meredith backed away slowly, eyeing the shadowy tendrils between them, hands raised in a gesture of peaceful intent. She spoke slowly, clearly considering each word carefully, as if slotting them into place on a press.

How did you do... that?

"Oh, those?"

>Yuri looks towards her back. They weren't there anymore, but it still indicated that Yuri knew what Meredith was talking about.

That's great to hear! But everyone here is so nice, of course you'd get along great!

I'm sure you'll find yourself a wonderful little group of friends to call your nakama as well!

>focusing back on his spaghetti, Zach slurped up another large helping of pasta into himself without even chewing

So what do you do for fun, Pakkun! There's lots to do around here!

I like to draw! And I draw a lot! I don't have any art on me, but maybe I can show them to you someday!

OH! Maybe I can even draw you someday! Marshall-sensei's been teaching me a lot about portraits, but there's only so many drawings of Api-chan I can make!
>a pause
...just kidding! I could draw Api-chan forever! It makes her so happy!

But it doesn't hurt to try out new things, and new models! I'd love to be able to draw you someday! I bet I could make you look super cool with no problem!

W-Well, some 'f th' same stuff as you...y'know, video games 'n whatnot...

...I like explorin' places that are supposed t' be haunted. I'd spend a lot 'f th' time lookin' through th' woods where I lived fer anythin' supernatural...

But with an entire wing dedicated t' that here, it kinda takes some of th' mystery out 'f it, so I'm decidin' where t' look next...

You must be super brave to just go out into spooky haunted forests by yourself like that!
>his eyes practically glimmered with how impressed he seemed to be
I really like spooky stuff too, but huuuuuhn, I just can't handle scary things!

Every time I tell myself "this is it; this is the day I watch a spooky video", I always end up slamming the laptop shut halfway through!

>he giggled a bit, a light blush crossing over his cheeks

I bet that's gotta sound pretty silly for someone like you, huh? I can't handle a recording of a ghost, but you're going out there to meet them face to face!

You'd think a vampire would be able to deal with that kinda stuff, huh?
>then again, that's why he's training to become the Vampire King!
>stabbing his fork down on another lump of spaghetti, Zach hummed as he rolled up the pasta
I've heard about there being some haunted stuff around the school that even the magic people can't explain!

Maybe you could start there?

Ah, a mystery.

All too common here. Powers beyond the domain of mortal men...

Quite a story! I'm a lot less ambiguous. I was born weak and sickly, so my parents sought out any help they could find! They found too much.

>Zach's eyes lit up once more, a wide grin reemerging over his lips
Sonic the Hedgehog!
>he confidently answered
I love every single game I've played! He's just the coolest!

I think I like the racing games the most! Lan-chan's a wizard at Sonic R, but I can totally kick his butt in Team!

But the other games are great too! Don't get me wrong! I could play Sonic 3 for-literal-EVEEEEER and never get bored it! Knuckles is my favoritest of favorites, and he's so cool and fun to play as!
>Zach playfully punched the air
It'd be so awesome to have spikes on your knuckles! It'd make climbing to high places so super easy! Especially with how short I am!

>he paused, taping the knife on his chin as he thought harder

Let's see... Iiiii play '06 a lot, but even I'll admit, it's not the best Sonic game out there... but the story-! Eeeeeeee~!

The story is my favorite out of all of 'em! I cry every! Time! Especially when-OOP!
>he quickly stopped himself
Aah-ha-ha! I shouldn't spoil it! I could show you someday! I should totally show you someday!

You should totally come over to my room! We could play as many Sonic games we want!
>he hopped back to his feet, jumping up and down and clearly very excited at the prospect
Whaddaya say! Doesn't that sound fun!? I-I'd even handle all the snacks, and we could have a sleepover! I could even invite my other friends and introduce you to 'em!

Ah-! Or is that too much!? It could just be us; that's fine too! I'm sure we could have lots of fun even on our own! It's always a fun time with the right Sonic game~!

I wish we had met under better circumstances, but it's nice to meet you all the same.

>Even if he was rather...cagey about the whole situation. Nevertheless, he turned back to Sally and managed another awkward looking smile.

Believe me, I wasn't sure why they picked me for this either. According to the DA, it did just boil down to being one of the physically fittest, but even still...

>He couldn't believe that he'd have ever done what he just did either. Frankly he was still having trouble associating the memory of what happened with him, and not just the suit.

Ah, the suit is...I believe it was called a Powered Evidence Recorder and Reconnaissance unit. The head of the project said they wanted to call it 'Perry' but couldn't find a good enough word for Y. It's a joint effort from the NRPD tech wizards apparently, everyone's put their mark on it somewhere. Including Miss Wingnut, I believe. Perhaps that was why the thrusters have so much of a kick.

>Maxwell kicked at the ground with the suit absently as he held his hands up, as though inviting Sally and Sam if he so chose to look.

It's fitted with cameras in the eye bits, the hands can scan the ground beneath me and pull up a fancy 3D image...

>As though to demonstrate, one hand went down and a bright light pulsed out in a circle at their feet. Within a few seconds, the palm not pointed at the earth began to project a crude model of what looked like all three of their shoes.

I'm not really sure of the specifics, I'm still learning and I'm not too good with tech but they say I'm basically a walking evidence database now. I can just get to a crime scene and, well, go.

>The light vanished from his other hand and the model vanished, as Maxwell wrung his hands together before placing them back at his sides.

I've still got a fair bit to learn, this was just an emergency deployment. I'm happy that the jets and the shielding work though...
