    The Primordial Dream is, to quote Dave Brockshaw "humanity's evolutionary instincts and underlying animal psychology."

    By Civilisation I mean that Hearts represents all the attempts to control and tame that inner animal through rules and social traditions.

    Swords embrace self sacrifice. So if fear exists to keep you safe, what does fear say to someone who is able to willingly die for another?

    Does fear think they need a double sized lesson to keep them safe? Or does fear think they've gone beyond the need for lessons? (Or does fear just say "safe" doesn't apply to Princesses since they come back from the dead anyway).

    Also, noticed you didn't say anything about Spades or Clubs.
    Nothing came to mind.

      Or maybe they need a lesson in how their self-sacrificing nature hurts others? I don't really know, Beasts also might decide, "You're not afraid to die for others? I can respect that."

      Clubs... I guess a Nemesis dedicated to scaring people who pollute might be inclined to work with a Clubs Princess, though they might argue about whether using fear is a good tool for environmentalism or not.

      Spades... part of me wants to say they might team up with a Beast to create the ultimate Horror Attraction.

        Going as far as dying for others does not really mean you are not scared. Humans do plenty of things that scare them, for different reasons, everyday.

"You will fail if you don't study harder" sounds like something a Princess of Diamonds would be scared of; not why she's scary to others. Kinship Nightmares for Diamonds would probably be something like: "You're nice blue collar culture is going to become obsolete", or "Everything you think you know is in question".
          Isn't it obvious? It's the Final Exam, and You're Naked.

            That sounds more like what a Princess of Diamonds would be afraid off (if she dosn't find exams exciting instead). But I don't think a Diamond would be likely to scare Mary Mortal into having that dream, in the way that Mary would be terrified that a Mekhet knew her secrets.

              A fair number of the Kinship Nightmares Beast provides are built around things the Kin are afraid of - Your Rage Consumes You on Death Rage, You are Better Than Them on mages' hubris, Everyone Hates You on Disquiet, Tabula Rasa on mummies' losing Memory.

              By the way, that would make You Couldn't Save Them or You Let Them Die reasonable Princess-based Nightmares - the horror of having to watch while something awful happens, unable to intervene, or the burden of survivor's guilt.

                Fair point.

                So. Would It's the Final Exam, and You're Naked make the target a better student, or make them panic and forget learned knowledge?

                  ... Do you find that being naked in public helps you be a better student? I can't speak from personal experience, but if it did I'd be very much surprised.

                    I suppose it depends on the course in question. And the student's proclivities.

                      The latter, I think.


                      Is it presumptuous of me to ask for alternating male/female pronouns?

                        That's what I thought. But you did bring it up in response to me saying the potential for Nightmares that directly make people better students would be a major attracting factor in Beast/Diamonds relationships.

                          It did good things for speech class.

                              People were too distracted by my dong and getting security to pay critical attention to my discourse. PLus, if you can deliver a speech naked, you ain't got nothing to worry about in clothes.
