Summary Something worse than a nightmare haunts Clara’s sleeping mind.
Author’s notes I hope posting this here is alright - although the characters are New!Who, the concepts are very EDA-inspired. The Clara arc and Faction Paradox felt like such an obvious connection that I simply had to write it. Inspired by this edit by kelleycarries of Tumblr.
Title from this lovely quote from Owen Meredith’s poem Lucile: “Alas! must it ever be so? / Do we stand in our own light, wherever we go, / And fight our own shadows forever?” (II.II.5)

The dream started before Clara was completely asleep.
