Something about dreams affects me so much. I think that's what it is. Dreaming in Shadow is often sad... and it came from a dream, but that was a long time ago. The feelings of this dream are fresh. And I honestly think I've gotten more and more sensitive over the years. I think I could write sad things for characters much easier 5 years ago. And more hurtful things to characters based on people I didn't like, too... ~_~; Now, I feel sorry for them. On one part, I guess I've become more forgiving?
I'll still write what comes to me. I won't betray the story, but it kind of hurts more now.
