Everything looks slightly different in the morning …

Welcome to anyone who is finding his or her way here from the Richard Armitage Fan Blog. Hope I don’t disappoint with this strange mix of starstruck squee and academic reflection.

I was really in a terrible mood last night. But the last dream I had this morning was really wild. I didn’t dream OF Lucas North; I dreamt I WAS Lucas North.

As a single woman, I definitely have bedtime stories I tell myself to relax myself before sleeping. Lately it’s been that I am Lucas North’s romantic partner. Some of these fantasies are a lot of fun and maybe I should write them down. So I’ve been dozing off to sleep, pretending I am lying the arms of the superspy. For some reason last night, probably because I had a lot more to drink than usual and so my sleep was disturbed, I ended up on the other side of the bed. It’s really strange, but even though I have a queen bed I have always slept on”my” side of it. Last night I ended up on the side for the other person. Never mind that there hasn’t been another person on that side of the bed for four years now. I think ending up physically on the wrong side of the bed meant that I ended up in the wrong side of the fantasy. Very, very strange.

It wasn’t a very complex dream, mostly just that I felt my body as much taller and thinner, and that I as Lucas kept wondering if my bedmate was going to get up and make coffee. I then tried to give her (me) a fullbody embrace, and that was when I woke up and realized that I wasn’t Lucas North after all.

  1. I wonder how many of us have that bedtime ritual. Since childhood, I’ve always made up a character (the one I’d like to be!) and inserted it into books/tv series, etc. Have a whole RH series 4 character, based on me! as I’d love to see myself (with Gisbourne, of course). And no, not about to write fanfic!

  3. […] Lucas North (till now these have been dreams involving cuddling / comfort, except for one where I dreamt I was Lucas North); is this a sign that the character has taken a decisive maturing step in 9.1 from wounded animal […]
