Sometimes powers aren't as obvious on paper as perhaps they should be. Months of horrible nightmares, months of failing to understand why I dreamed of strangers and events I didn't quite understand. But then, over time, I started to see fragments of my dreams become reality. Most notably, the August Swear In -- I dreamed of fireworks erupting into people's screams. Had I realized that my dreams were foretelling of some future, perhaps I could have given warning. Perhaps, I could have helped to prevent that future from occurring or at least built up awareness so people could defend themselves.

But now, I realize my job is to illuminate. I have had dreams most recently, some alarming and some benign. I've seen you all at one point or another. In many ways, I know you more intimately than you know yourself because I have seen what is to come and in some cases, how you take on that challenge.

I've dreamed of a man who takes on the pain of others, offering sanctuary to those most in need. And in turn, he becomes part of a larger pack. The winter months may be a bit more crowded in their home, but with spring comes change. New places for the fosters to live and the long-awaited 'shedding' of a winter coat.

I've dreamed of a Doctor in a world unknown, and a harbinger carrying tragedy on its darkened wings. When birds don't take to the sky, something else must ascend to the heavens. And sharpening ones beak on a diamond mountain must take less time than the foretold one second of eternity to wear it down.

But perhaps most alarming, I've dreamed of fire in the city of Heropa -- the screams of civilians with buildings ablaze. But this fire burns more than buildings to ashes. It leads to chaos, confusion, and rebirth. Like a phoenix rising from the flame, so, too, will imPorts.

There have been more. Fragments. Pieces. Often stringing together over time to form a larger puzzle. And once they do come together, I will foretell them, as well. The beautiful thing about the future is though I might be able to see it, it can be changed.

And as for who I am, well, I would prefer to keep my identity to myself. But if you need a name attached to my words, you can refer to me as The Clairvoyant.

Unless the fire's metaphorical as well, that's troubling to hear. Do you have any more specifics? Where in Heropa, and when? Any idea what causes it?

[He's taking the whole "prophecy" thing with a grain of salt, to be sure - but even if she's seeing only one possible outcome out of billions, it'd be irresponsible not to try and prevent it.]
