Much as it pains me to admit it, and much as I loathe dream sequences, Anne was right about Carnival needing the dream sequence. I just got to it in the CEM, and it's absolutely chilling. It works. She was right, and I was wrong.

Poor Michelangelo. Okay, yeah, he's a classic borderline personality. He's got his reasons, though.

I was kind of hard on the boy.

What is it, do you think, about this particular dream sequence and the story around it that worked better with the dream (whatever it may have been)? Is it backstory, or foreshadowing, or ???
It's backstory. And it shows something that happened to Angelo when he was two, which otherwise doesn't make it into the book, and which explains a lot of truly terrible things about why he's who he is, and why he's risking what he's risking for the reasons he is.

And why he's chosen the side--and the fate--that he has. Over love, loyalty, self-preservation, and everything else that the world might have to offer.
Did I ever mention how I adore the Kusanagi-Jones name? Utterly charming.
Hee. Thank you. *g*
