Nightmare is the name of Dream’s evil twin. Like Yin and Yang, Beavis and Butthead, or day and night. You know the template. Really really good and really really bad.
Dream is a helpful friend, while Nightmare is a deceiving enemy. Dream makes you a celebrity on the red carpet. Nightmare pulls it from right under your feet.
Nightmare’s henchmen are notorious and well-documented. Everything from cold sweats to raging heartbeats have bullied countless people since the birth of time. Nightmare would make us skinny dip in the ocean with no oxygen supply, just for the hell of it.
Not only is Nightmare evil, he absolutely loves nothing more than to toy with out emotions. If you’re a person who is not only afraid of spiders, but also has an irrational fear of big noses, Nightmare will find a way to merge them together. Even if you try running from the 40 foot nasally rich tarantula and its bulging nostrils of doom, Nightmare will make sure you don’t run fast enough.
Or you may be running at regular speed, only to find yourself swallowed down a hole that came out of nowhere. Plunging into the abyss, destined to fall forever. I’m sure that I’m not the only one who hates those nightmarish falling experiences.
I think we can all agree that Nightmare deserves a well-placed kick to the crotch. What do you think?
