Alien Gaze

from Vaskania Prime by PatternShift



On Vaskania Prime sleep doesn’t work like in the simulations of Earth of old. Instead, people experience a shared hallucination, like plugging into a virtual reality through a hidden interface. In the dream world, people appear as distorted shadows of themselves. You can’t identify them unless truly intimate, and even then, you can go wrong. And things can happen to the real you. No one seems to have died in the dream world, but they’ve been trapped, drained, tortured. People harmed in the dream world may wake up with extreme personality changes, as if their mind has been shattered into fragments and hastily reassembled. And it seems as something else is there, observing and waiting. Enough of the old human gene line has been preserved that the inhabitants of Vaskania Prime can feel the biological machinery of prey behavior kicking in: the sense of being stared at.
