Delightful writing as ever, and for some reason I still like the Manager for all his faults. Has anyone else played it yet? I am fretting over a certain choice and I need to gossip with fellow Londoners on that.

From reading others' journals - that dream can get rather saucy! Loosen my collars and fetch my fan! And, yes, I quite like the Manager too. I'm also hesitating over the final choice...

I also like the Manager. Too bad that he interpreted my chosen solution/choice at the end as betraying him (i.e. helping his enemies).

I am trying to decide what to do with the tiny FingerKing! Any advice as to what happens with any option?

[spoiler]If you feed it your dreams, your dream qualities decrease slightly, it leaves, the manager feels perhaps somewhat betrayed, and once you awake you find a tear of the Bazaar.[/spoiler]

Oh, so it is the final choice. I wonder what happens with the first two choices..

So there was apparently already some discussion about this topic over here.

Oh thank you! I admit I only care for what the Manager thinks, not the material reward at this point.

It seems he approves of both killing and pacifying the snake, I would say more the second than the first perhaps; these are the options he himself rewards you for. The vial of tears you see in a mirror before in the real world, and has an unmarked red and gold label on it: all this to me suggests that the third solution was either ineffective or unsatisfactory to the manager. But I think his nightmares were calmed in any case, for now.

I'll list this here as well:
Killing the snake gives an Intriguer's Compendium, feeding it false stories gives a Dreadful Surmise, and giving it your own dreams gives a Vial of Tears of the Bazaar. The Tears are probably the most valuable, but what does it matter?


(I for one chose to feed the snake false stories. Even if the snakes are deceitful b______s, it's hard to bring myself to kill one. Especially when snakes can be so cute!)

This piece of text caught my eye. Is it perhaps a hint to a Mystery?

I was under the impression that the vial of tears came from the Fingerkings. Leaving valuable items on your bedside is a respected serpentine tradition, red and gold are both colours associated with snakes, and the Manager didn't seem particularly fond of your actions.

I'd also suggest that he is more fond of the first choice than the second: Killing the snake nets you an entire Intriguer's Compendium from the Manager, while the second is only a thank-you note and a suggestion that what you saw is good secrets.

Well, I was going to just ignore him and let him suffer with nightmares forever......but maybe I'll check out a peoples' journals to find out if I can be a huge a-hole to him. If so, it might be worth losing my new drink coaster, paperweight, and Pet Moth Who's Going To Hatch Any Day Now I Swear in order to play the storylet :P

EDIT: oh great, more whining about his douchy boyfriend. Does this guy have any other characterization at all? Seriously buddy, you've been in the neath for ages. FIND ANOTHER HOBBY.

Please tell me there's an option to let the snakes swallow him. Preferably headfirst so that it shuts him up faster :P

Well, someone doesn't like the Manager. What'd he ever do to you, take your brass buttons?

I assumed the constant visions of snekky things was a hint as to what the problem was - the little noodle infecting his dreamworld in general.

If we're collating interesting lore, I can't not mention this little tidbit about snakes and rebirth.

I fed the snake false information because I enjoy being deceptive and tricky to equally deceptive and tricky beings

I do feel for the Manager though. I had to counsel a friend for a very long time after they "lost" a loved one and the dreams feel remiscent of that nonsensical regret and longing.

I agree about what the presence of the snake-ish thing meant in general. I was referring more specifically to the "feline" description.

It seemed like the snakes infecting recurring elements of each city in memory. Snake on the Silver Tree, snake replacing where a cat would fit, etc
