I fell asleep in my English
class as everyone was giving summaries of the chapters of Frankenstein
. This caused me to dream the sequel to Frankenstein. I was Margaret Saville and I was reading Robert Walton's letters to me, only he was talking about his dear Elizabeth
. There was going to be a wedding onboard and Victor Frankenstein, played by my friend, Ben, was onboard as a bounty hunter being chased, something to do with the death of Elizabeth (who was now marrying Robert Walton?) The ship was then invaded by a nude man and his crewmate
s of the Sephora
(which was in Conrad
's The Secret Sharer
). I was mixing up a whole bunch of stories. I put the letter down and I walk outside in some nomad
tribe where I see myself burning in effigy
. I run into Ben and another boy from my English class, Adam, and they're telling me about this epic they are writing based on Beowulf
with a bunch of the characters from Asimov
's Foundation Series
. The entire thing is in some germanic language (like Old English
) and Adam whispers to me that Ben will be kicked out of the credit lines because his writing really sucks. I told him that's a lie, and we laughed at this, but then something happened...
Joseph started doing some impersonations of Frankenstein's monster and I woke up.
