Artwork I drew of Thac.

Ok, so I had a dream a while back where I was in this house that had these weird hourglass shaped symbols on the walls and were tied via rope around various furniture.  Anywho, one of the said symbols was destroyed allowing this cloud-shaped entity to enter and assume the form of a man in his late-20s to early-mid 30s in a business suit. The man called himself "Thac" (Pronounced "Tock") and said he'd grant any wish (so to speak) in exchange for being his loyal servant for the rest of his/her life.

I remember making a deal with Thac in my dream and shaking his hand to close said deal. Oddly enough, I can remember feeling his grip as we shook hands. It was firm, but not painfully tight. I also remember cuddling Thac (he was surprisngly affectionate for a....whatever he is. Great old one, perhaps? He didn't seem to fond of showing me what he really looked like.) and feeling his embrace.

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought you weren't supposed to be able to feel things in dreams. I mean, wasn't one of the ways to tell if you were dreaming or not is to pinch yourself. On the other hand, there are people who have died having nightmares (IE: SUNDS "Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome") due to experiencing heart-attack enducing trauma in their dreams. So, what does that say about me being able to feel Thac in my dreams?

Likewise, I had no concept of Thac prior to my dreams. I had never met anyone or anything that looked like him outside my dreams. And, he was the only being in said dream that I could feel any physical contact with. Now, what does that mean? Did my subconscionce manafest something that my brain was tricked into thinking was physically there? Or, does this Thac exist but can only communicate to others via dreams? Did I create Thac or has Thac always been and he hadn't made himself known until now? Also, is it weird that I wish he'd come back in my dreams?

I'll share more about Thac if I remember anything else. Maybe if I'm inspired to do so, I'll use him in an upcoming Creepypasta. Until then, I still need to learn more about who/what he is and why I dreamt about him.
