Dreamed that I was living in a dorm room with That Idiot Shawn, only he wasn't quite That Idiot Shawn. After many adventures in near-communication, it was revealed that he was a very AU blend of Darkside and Shawn -- not entirely dangerous, but not entirely safe either.

So it winds up, in the waking world, that I shouldn't worry so much about potentially falling for Mr. Idiot again. The dream laid it out very plainly: those features of Shawn's that are both attractive and dangerous are present, in Darkside, in a non-dangerous form. Shawn has a high level of focus on projects that are important to him, and is angry if disturbed. Darkside has a high level of focus on projects that are important to him, and will put them aside if there is something wrong. Darkside isn't, objectively speaking, safe, but since he is an honorable man and knows many of his own potential shortcomings and works around them, and I know them too and know how to get around them, he's safe for me. It doesn't hurt that he's fairly focused on making sure to keep me safe...
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
