Thanks Did you mean the piece where S'rR's is reassuring herself that she's actually awake, or the transition between the dream and waking worlds? I wanted to try and contrast the realization that she was definitely awake, against the slightly surreal reality-bending quality that dreams can have, and how things like a numb arm can filter through into a dream. The question, is was that actually just a nightmare, or was Alix actually communicating to her in the dream state, and actively trying to scare her out of the castle? Something else I wanted to convey, was how dramatically S'rR's was 'regressing' in her isolation, ie scraping herself clean rather than bathing properly, and probably not far from going totally Miss Havisham
