Fermius Firefly

A Dream Log, whenever I remember the dreams I've had.

Fermius is a pen name drawn from a series of short fiction I wrote when I published the small press magazine Stellanova (on paper.) I play RPG games to escape from my daily grind as a technology wage slave for the state of California. I eat out a lot in order to do my part in supporting our increasingly service level economy. I am butler to 2 feline masters. If you ask them they will tell you I'm not very good at it, late with dinner, don't have enough hands with brushes in them, and sometimes I even lock them out of their office.

Roberto and Juliet

              I had one of those dreams where I struggled to come up with a couple of names. Just the names, and variations of them over and over again. The first name came fairly quickly, Juliet O'Finklestein, or Julieto Finklestein. There is also the possibility that it was Juliet-o-Finklestein. Whichever, it was obvious that my Juliet (Julieto?) needed a romantic co-lead. I couldn't seem to think of a proper first name, though.
              I had a last name, Modesto. The variations game started. Mercurio Modesto, Roberto Modesto, Mercurio Roberto Modesto, Roberto Roberto Mercurio Modesto, and then finally the name that seemed to stick: Roberto Mercurio Modesto. So there I had my star-crossed lovers Roberto and Juliet.
              I repeated the names several times over and then decided these characters needed a title for their story, but I couldn't come up with one for the life of me.
