One interesting side-effect I have noticed, though: my dreams are much more vivid now and really, really cool. 'I don't want to wake up' kind of cool. A lot of the time, only the shape of the dream remains and the details dissappear within a few minutes of waking up.
Last night's was brilliant and I can remember quite a few details. My viewpoint switched between omnipresent, nameless observer and someone whose main aspect is passion (or possibly represents passion. I'm not clear on this). Part of a humanoid race, it seems. Or maybe they've just got human shapes because they represent human(ish?) emotions?. There were others. My best friend's aspect is conflict/war? We're all in an underground cave system. Not a dark hole, but a proper place to live (I'm sure the movie of my dream would use a lot of fairy lights and water) with twists and turns and niches. Some of those have statues in various poses, their clothes covered in symbols.
Our complex is attacked by outsiders. I don't have any weapons, my friend has two swords and a knife he hides in the hilt of his large sword. He hands me the knife and tells me to keep out of the way because I 'don't know how to fight'. I end up killing? Incapacitating? one woman in a rather gruesome way. She seems to enjoy the whole experience. I feel unpleasant. My friend and I are the first/last(?) line of defense. Actually, we have to be the last because when it is over and we have killed or incapacitated all the intruders, I end up near some baths where the inevitable resident wise lady tells me off for getting blood on me (I'm thinking she's not just being literal here).
There's an...outsider. He looks like us, but he's not of the same background. And the people who attacked us are actually led by the outsider's sister. She walked out one day, taking the identity of our youngest member (who is understandably somewhat upset by this) and offering any who follow her money and power. She obtains these by stealing them from our brothers and sisters who are trying to capture her.
My friend, the outsider and I are part of the group that is to go north in pursuit of the sister.
And then my alarm went off and I woke up. Curses...
