The border between by monochromera The border between by monochromera
dreams and reality~

so I got to thinking, a lot of dream/nightmare monsters would be scary or fierce- blood, bones, claws, fangs, creepy crawlies, things of that nature, because people fear that right?
but what I've noticed scares most people more than anything else
is simply the truth
truth about what happens after death, about what someone they care about might REALLY think of them, about whether they are really right or wrong, about people's deaths and predicaments, about life events, about forecasts... the truth is a terrifying thing. As humans we delude ourselves into false senses of security and to evade it, making up excuses and mental preparations that can shield us from it; or we just trick ourselves into never thinking of it at all. Ignorance is truly bliss.
So I figured I'd go with something more... thought-invoking? I'll find a better word later than what most would see as dream/nightmare material.

so 
I'm thinking this cutie
would travel through people's subconscious as they sleep, and harvest whatever lies they have most recently concocted and snatch them up, exposing them to things they have tried to avoid mentally, and giving them nightmares as a result. It would then use those lies to cover itself, rendering it invisible to the people who are awake. Should it ever be spotted despite it's disguise, it is capable of unzipping it's body, and the truth held within would gush out, enveloping it's victim and paralyzing them with fear/sadness/shock so it can escape
