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.

Hippos attack.

I dreamed I was on a boat in Africa. We hadnt intended to go to Africa, but came under attack by pirates. I was bound hand and feet and thrown overboard as we were sailing up a river.

The ropes that tied me seemed to swell in the water, but they also became weaker. I was able to loosen the one around my hands and get them free, swimming to the surface just as I ran out of air. It seems all my thrashing around disturbed the hippos in the water. They might have been used to boats going by, but not swimming with people. One charged me, and I just managed to get myself out of the way.

I struggled to get my feet untied and then had to dodge another attack. I managed to get on the back of the beast somehow and so he charged the boat in frustration.

The boat capsized, completely flipping over. I managed to get myself on the bottom of the boat by grabbing onto the keel as it rolled past. The hippo dove underneath to attack the pirates whod fallen off the deck. I took some deep breaths and prepared to dive under and try to rescue my travel companions.

Woke up completely pinned under the covers by the cats.
