Characters: Annie, Sam, Others
Genre: Psychological Drama, Surreal
Words: ~3,900
Rating: PG-13

Notes: So there was this fic exchange a couple of years ago...

For [livejournal.com profile] aisforinterval, who has literally waited TWO LONG YEARS for this thing. (Clearly, 2015 is the year of posting everything-that-is-almost-finished-but-not-quite that lives in my fic folders.) I doubt any gift is worth a wait that long, but I hope you enjoy this at least in some small part!

Thanks (as always) to [livejournal.com profile] talkingtothesky for beta'ing/proofreading/Britpicking. (Though I kept American spelling/punctuation because I'm a bad person.)

Summary: Every day is normal.
Prompt: Sam is frustrated by still being unable to leave 1973, starts experimenting with lucid dreaming, finds that it affects/controls the world of 1973.
