the-space asked : Hello King! Have you ever been under the influence of either nightmare sand or golden dream sand?
King looked to the Nightmare King. he sworn that he hadn’t been there a moment before. but suddenly feeling a bit safer, King whispered, ‘from Sandman. he’s been following me with that dreamsand of his for days.’
'oh? yes he does that.' the Nightmare King said bitterly. then, ’are you afraid?’ the question was genuine as if the King of Fear did not know.
'…yes.' King hesitantly admitted.
Pitch nodded. ‘i see. here, let me show you a neat trick.’ the Nightmare King offered.
the Nightmare King lead his hand towards the soft glow of the dreamsand. ‘it won’t hurt you, King.’ he said reassuringly to King’s tremble.
'but… how??’ King gasped as the dreamsand fell dull and black around them.
'that jumper is made from my shadows.' the Nightmare King supplied. 'wearing it, you have use of them. only you.’
'from now on, my lord, whenever you feel afraid, or angry, or upset, you only need that jumper to handle the rest. Dreamsand or otherwise will not stand in your way… for what goes better than cold and dark?’
'i suppose im under constant influence of shadows which also includes nightmare sand, if that answers your question.'

dragon-ice asked : Who would take care of you if you were to fall ill or be caught in a sudden or unexpected heat wave?
'i dont need to be taken care of. the shadow sweater provided by the Nightmare King helps to keep me cold even in the warmest places. but should anything befall me, i’ll take my death with grace.’

trick-mun asked : "Kiiiing!" Trick cried, bounding his way towards the winter spirit. Smiling, he stretched upwards to hold a flower under the King's nose. "Take this! It's a Forget-Me-Not! If you give this flower to the Boogeyman, he'll fall in love with you!"
it was pleasant to see the little shadow spectre again. but with such a surprise offering King fumbled for words. 'thank you, small shadow.' he settled on and took the flower. he had no intention of giving the gift to the Nightmare King should it actually be enchanted somehow, not to mention he wondered why this small shadow would think he needed to have the Nightmare King fall in love with him at all, but he didnt want to appear rude. a gift was a gift after all.
although it was normal for the Nightmare King to come and go as he pleased, King thought on how this was the worst time for one of his surprise appearances. leave it to Sparrow to know where he was.
'forget-me-nots, King? what an odd flower to be carrying around in this area. they're not exactly native.' Pitch Black said to King.
'i didn't get it from the area,' King replied bashfully, 'another shadow spectre gave it to me.' he admitted.
King resisted the urge to include ‘because it may or may not be enchanted’.
