It sucks, waking up from one of the most epic, why the hell don;t they make (TV shows/movies/books/video games) like this, super-vivid dreams you can ever remember having, and then being hit with the icy-cold, soul numbing realization that you new best friend and perfect partner is someone you are likely to ever see again. Why? because after decades of experience, you know for a fact that your subconscious absolutely SUCKS at re-casting characters in later dreams.
Kieriel, I promise never to forget you. You are a goddess, and I love you.
