Going Gaiman: OuaT and the Sandman verse  

Just an idea from that split second before analytical thinking kicks in and kindly informs me that I’m chasing impossible butterflies, because OuaT and Neil Gaiman’s Sandman universe are really not all that compatible.

I’ve been nursing the thought before. There is this half-overheard conversation I have in my head. Two of Gaiman’s Endless (a family of timeless entities embodying universal concepts), the sisters Despair and Desire looking down on Killian Jones during his Neverland years, and discussing to whom of them he ultimately belongs. So far, so much for private fantasies and head!canons.

But now that OuaT has added an officially introduced “Realm of Untold Stories” to its evergrowing list of fictional worlds I’m beginning to wonder. What if they all, the various realms and everybody within them, every forest, castle, mountain, mouse and man were actually part of the Dreaming?

Sounds weird, yes? However it would account for quite a lot of the things going on. This entry was originally posted at http://bimo.dreamwidth.org/73328.html. Comment there or here, as you like. I'd be glad to reply to your comments over on DW.

That had occured to me before. Remember A Game of You, where we find out Barbie's dream world was originally created by Dream for one of his past girlfriends? It would very much work as an explanation if this is true for all the OuaT realms. Especially given Dream's romantic track record and awfulness at relationships. He clearly wanted to impress someone by giving them a realm where True Love works out, and being Morpheus, got a bit stuck on the "working out" part. Also, Desire couldn't help meddling with some of the creations...
