Lost: One Fairy Tale

I had a very intense dream in the early hours of this morning that was basically one long adventure/fairy tale. There were awesome girl characters--a walking descendant of merfolk who could travel via the foam on ocean waves, for example--and awesome boy characters, too.

I knew if I wrote it all down exactly as I dreamed it, it would be a pretty decent novel.

I woke up, and knew if I inverted half the dream--following a different character than the main princess as my protagonist, basically--it would be a GREAT novel.

And what happened? After telling myself I'd remember, I forgot everything. Absolutely everything.

Everything except the image of the girl crashing with a wave over the bow of a ship, and watching the seafoam slip away around her bare feet, and me, in whatever character I was inhabiting, thinking, "She's arrived!"
