"Um, could we listen to 'Pavane for a Dead Princess' while we wait?" She closes her eyes and draws the back of her hand across her forehead as though she might faint.

"Eli, you goof! That's not even funny!"

I think your idea that Eli would be so struck by seeing daylight all through "The Sound of Music," and actually have a nightmare as a result, is both original and very clever.

So many of us have written in fan fics or in our posts that giving up everseeing a sunrise or blue skiesis a big price to pay for becoming a vampire. In part 2, I wrote:

"Hey, I know!" Eli says brightly. "When I first made the hideout, I fell in love with this bit of forest. Will you go outside with me? And just sit? We can never watch a sunrise, but..."

They sit and hold each other, enchanted as the twilight sky brightens and the forest wakes up. Small animals rustle the foliage, and birds begin their predawn chorus. The wall of sound reaches a crescendo minutes before daybreak, when Oskar and Eli must go back in. Neither says a word. They fall into their deep sleep, hugging each other, their faces a picture of the sublime peace that all children deserve.

Then the opening scene of The Sound of Music slapped me in the face! And slapped dear little Eli even harder. :o
