Backstory Index
Original Dream-inspired fiction and art by Dolores J. Nurss

I do swear
To serve Lovequest
With the sharpest edge of my mind, , , , ,With the softest tenderness of my heart
With the holiest courage of my soul, , , , ,With the last endurance of my flesh,
With understanding,
Or if necessary, without.
Where I cease to love Creation , , , , ,There I cease to love myself
--The Lovequest Vow of the Tili�n

For those who wish to learn how to write from dreams, or to study-dream-based fiction, every story either has a "dream notes" button at the bottom of every chapter, or notes somewhere in the telling about its dream origins. in fact, some portions of this Backstory section might well be dream notes, themselves. I'm not through deciding what to post here.
