Since a new member has joined the perviness (*waves to merith

Afterall, this is a shared NES universe for us, and it's good if everyone knows what the background of Fantasia Night is, who the new characters (or Night versions of beloved characters) are, et cetera.
The idea for Nox Diesque and Fantasia Night came about during a chat between me and trowacko
. I have the two chats we had discussing everything saved, and I can make them available for perusal. ^^
But, mainly, the idea is that Bastian is worried that Fantasia may once again go through The Nothing, because he's growing up and his fantasies are changing -- no longer innocent imaginations, but more worldly and carnal pursuits. In an effort to keep Fantasia alive, even if children stop dreaming, Bastian starts actively creating the "other" Fantasia, the realm of the Night. In the Night (literally), all adult
fantasies come to life, much like the way childish dreams fuel the life of Fantasia Day.
Of course, this isn't a simple process. Bastian gets a helping hand from the Childlike Empress -- who still rules the Day -- and a VERY helpful (and sometimes groping) hand from the Hedonistic Queen -- the Night mirror of the Childlike Empress. In the Night, all the sexual and fantastic creatures take on their own lives (like nymphs, satyrs, and succubi), and even beloved childhood Day denziens may take a wholly different form in the Night.
Day and Night of Fantasia are wholly separate, but connected. The only people who are aware of what they do in both Night and
Day are Bastian and the Childlike Empress/The Queen. But Bastian has to struggle with other things besides building a new world, like the fact that his beloved Day friend Atreyu has been changed by Bastian's hidden desires into a practical sex kitten in the Night. And the fact that The Queen is on him like white on rice, no matter how many times he says, "no." And what adult fantasies will be allowed in the Night, and what will be banned to keep the relative purity of the Day intact?
So, let's world-build, shall we?
Questions are good, too!
