It's been a while.

Lilly hasn't consciously avoided the woods. It's just that, well, for a while there was nothing back here, and then with the sceptre she found other ways to get between worlds.

But now, after talking to Coop, she's been reminded that there's a world here, and it has a Lord, and she hasn't spoken to him in some time.

Lilly passes the Caribbean inlet with a single longing look and heads straight into the woods, walking until that spot where everything blurs, for a second, and she's not in the woods anymore.

She's not in the woods any more.

It takes some time (but how much time?) for the trees to fade, and well before then a path resolves itself among them, and the sunlight that filters through seems to point the way.

And it is no time at all before the path emerges into a clearing, and in that clearing is a table, and on that table are three limes, a knife, a small cutting board, two shotglasses, and a bottle.

The Lord of Dreams sits with an elbow on the table, flames licking up his lapels, legs crossed, waiting.

If one is to do something, one should do it right.

It is indeed very good tequila.

"I could ask you the same question, Lilly Kane." Morpheus does not seem angry about this, however. "You have not entered my realm in some time."

With others, he could believe that slipping into the Dreaming was an accident. It seems less likely, with Lilly.

"It is important to renew such relationships," Dream agrees. "As you saw, I have recently done something similar."

"You of all should know, Lilly, that dreams are rarely nice or clean."

But he seems unbothered.

"It came to my attention that the connection between the Dreaming and Milliways had been severed. I thought it fitting to reestablish that connection."

"There were other needs more pressing."

This is, technically speaking, true.

"It is part of my function."

Lilly should know this by now.

(Although he is starting to get suspicious.)

The temperature in the clearing has dropped ten degrees.

Dream is silent.

Downton Abbey is not really an improvement, Lilly.

"All stories," he says, "are my province. Your trash and your class make no difference to me."

That question makes no sense whatsoever. "It is still over, Lilly." He's speaking pretty coldly, to go along with the temperature. "What difference could it possibly make?"

"That would be wise."

Dream seems to be staring at the path that leads out of the clearing. He also does not seem pleased.

"They worship you?"

Dream actually seems interested in this.

(Good job, Lilly.)

"If that is the case, then organization may be a matter of time," Dream observes.

"Worship generates power, Lilly. Were you not aware?"

It's entirely possible she wasn't.

Dream raises his eyebrows.

"It would not be the first time that veneration of the dead resulted in a fundamental change of that sort."
