The characters are Most Ancient, Littlest One, Thin Elderly, the old woman, and Fastidious. Conflict: John is a foster child. Sinisteeds give John nightmares every night. Dream givers are not strong enough to stop them. All of John's good fragmented pieces are fading and Littlest One and Thin Elderly must find a way to stop the Sinisteeds.
3: Climax: After Littlest One strengthens John, the Horde comes to inflict on John and the Old Woman. When John is inflicted Littlest is trying to cancel out the nightmares. Resolution: John is happier now that he can be reunited with his mom. Littlest One is now old enough to take care of herself without an instructor. | Plot Continued
