A Waking Dream I am outside of time and space where the normal rules of perception no longer apply.

Completely still and almost silent, the only hint of sound coming from the soft whisper of liquid nitrogen pumping through the storage banks.

Leroy leaned back against the wall in the shadows of the underground parking structure and admired the shiny red paint, sleek lines, and chrome of the brand-fucking-spanking new car.

What they needed was an original, not something like thins. This thing was a poor imposter - it was cleverly done, but too clever. Too neat.
