In my lasting posting [link]
from my Equestria dreamscape Paynes Gray finally told his story of how he has been banished to limbo but was still able to communicate from there despite The Lord of Shadows [link]
. He has also made an appeal to Princess Celestia and Princess Luna to ask them for help in freeing himself and his wife Sunrise [link]
from the clutches of the Lord of Shadows.
All that morning and into the early afternoon Princess Celestia and Luna along with Petina, Twilight and Spike listened while through me as Paynes spun his tale; however toward the end the strain of constantly communicating from beyond the Veil of Shadow to physical world just became too tiring and he had to break off communications. This left me in the garden with Petina Pony, Twilight, Spike, and the two sisters. As everyone else sat and digested the new information that Paynes had provided Celestia got up slowly walked up to me and then lowered her head so she could look me right in the eyes. Then with a slightly mischievous twinkle in her eye she said. "Now Baron what is your story?"
This was an awkward situation for me because with the exception of Petina [link]
none of the inhabitants of my dreamscapes know that they are products of my subconscious. For them their universes are just as concrete and real as ours. Therefore if I started claiming I was effectively was their god and creator it would generally crimp the storyline.
Besides even though I am the creator of these dreamscapes when I am in them I have very little conscious control of them beyond what my character can say and do. It is not like the movie "Inception" where I am rolling up city streets and stuff. Only when I am awake can I take all the individual facets, different viewpoints, information and different character experiences besides my own and see all as the big picture and explain it to people. Like I am right now.
So here I was now confronted with effectively this dreamscapes' demi-goddess who was asking me who I was.....really. And if Paynes Gray had not facilitated in also transporting Petina to Equestria then how did my friend get here since we obviously had known each other for awhile. Rather intimately according to the information she had heard. So what was going on?
I was as honest as I thought I could be and said neither myself or Petina had been born as ponies. That in our world we were bipedal in form. I left out the fact that there were bipedal equines there [link]
but that true horses and ponies were not sentient. She listened to my story intently that but then noted that for complete strangers to Equestria we seem to have a fairly decent grasp of the local customs and culture. How did we know that if we had never been here before? She really needed to more about me and Petina.....immediately. Oh boy.
