In Dreams of Trees : All For One

Rating/Warnings: PG
Summary: Blue’s group isn’t sure what to make of the information overload.

NOTE: This is a very rough draft with no editing at all (per National Novel Wiriting Month rules) and is presented for amusement value only. Think of it as a periscope into my writing process rather than a coherent story!

There will most likely be spelling and grammatical errors afoot as well as flat out bad writing, info dumps, plot holes, contradictions/retcons, uneven characterization and pacing. These snippits are also posted out of order, so please refer to the Outline to figure out where it’s supposed to fit.


All For One

“Is this really what we want to do?” Asks Blue, he looks at Brian who for the first time since they’ve met seems at a loss. “This changes everything.”

“I don’t want it to change.” Said Sara. “I’m tired of change, I’m tired of not knowing what’s going to happen next. I want it to go back to the way it was.”

“But this way the doors will stay open.” Said Nathan. “This way we can even get the doors back that we’ve lost. Maybe.”

“What good will that do?” Sara asked. “We can’t go home, none of us can go home.”

“But we can find a new home,” said Blue. “We could pick a door and walk through it and never walk back.”

Horn shifted, uncomfortably. “I don’t know that’s a good idea either.”

“We have to make a choice,” said Blue. “We can’t just sit here and wait for someone else to decide how this is all going to end.”

“But what can we do,” asked Brian, “this isn’t our decision.”

“Then we make it our decision.” Said Blue.
