[up][up] I've never had a dream where I was anything other than myself. I've had a few where I transform into creatures, but that's all. Either I'm myself, or it's a movie-type dream.

Hundreds of birds were gathering at a spot I could see from my house. At first it was only a few small birds, then a large flock of crows or starlings, then ducks and geese, then hawks and eagles big enough to snatch up my dog or a child. It was strongly implied that whatever was drawing the birds there was anomalous and incredibly dangerous, since the feds and an SCP Foundation-like group were gathering around it, but I never found out what it was. Because... I looked into a spacious, porch-like room with outdoor furniture that preceded the front door to my house that doesn't actually exist, and saw the Pillar Men lurking, trying to find a way in. The dream ended there.

The other night, I had a dream that my mother and I were in this kind of run-down motel. We ordered pizza, and that was kind of the whole dream. Honestly, the only weird thing is how not weird it was.

Sometime last year, I had a dream that I was driving uphill on one of the two-lane residential roads in my hometown, intending to make a left turn at the top. As the roads in this area are on a hill, there's nothing overtly strange until I get to the top. As I get near the last intersection, the hill curves upward until it's vertical, with the street and the houses on it standing sideways. I desperately try to make my left turn, hoping that I can stop on one of the houses, but I wind up doing a 180 instead. This sends me back downhill at breakneck speed. As the car speeds downhill unable to stop, the road reveals itself to have changed to something like a Main Street in a much larger community. The road is now divided with a grassy raised median and two lanes going each way. As the ground levels out, successfully evade everything in my way and turn onto the highway for that part of town, which is back to being the normal two-lane highway that it is in real life. Unfortunately, I'm still going very fast and I run off the road into a tank farm. I make it out of that and overshoot the road, sending the car into the water where it just floats. I climb out the sunroof and wake up as I'm planning how I'm going to get back to shore.

Today I just had a very brief dream where I was sailing a boat with some people (a black guy, a blonde girl and a Tag Along Kid) in what looked like a really cool adventure and then the OSP version of Poseidon suddenly appeared rising from the sea and just posed mightyly.

The next thing I remember is kissing him and he fleeing like a flustered mermaid. Then the crew and I got into a submarine looking for Atlantis. Then I woke up.

Last night I dreamed my dad got REALLY upset because he had been in my apartment and said he was sending me to an institution because he found my bottle. I thought he'd meant like... some random bottle of alcohol or something but he meant he found my bottle of hydrogen peroxide. (Which I guess was no longer a perfectly normal thing that many people keep in their bathrooms. That or he made some weird mental leap that "she needs something to rinse out wounds, therefore she must be hurting herself" or thought I was going to try to bleach my hair orange or something.)

All I can remember from my dreams last night was having one of those annoying "dream-you're-going-through-your-morning-routine-then-wake-up-for-real-and-have-to-do-it-all-over-again" types of dreams. For some reason, the fact that Huey, Dewey, and Louie were in my house (and one of them was hogging the bathroom) while I was going through my morning routine did not clue me into the fact that I was dreaming until after I woke up.

[up]Having Disney characters as roommates would be pretty cool, though. [lol]


My dream last night started with me trapped in some horror game, with some monster chasing me. But eventually, the game's play style switched to Minecraft Creative Mode. The monster revealed that he was keeping thousands of people locked in an enormous room and wouldn't let us out until we finished building a giant monument for him. The monument was already in progress when I got there, so I just helped build some parts.

At one point, I met this Cool Old Lady who managed to change her character from a Minecraft skin, to Galeem.

Then I was in a Sonic the Hedgehog game, as Sonic. I had heard there was a secret final boss that wasn't Eggman, so I was looking around the final world, which was a space station, trying to find the secret boss room... Or something.

Then I met the old lady from earlier, who was now a robot, and I told her I was bummed because I couldn't find the secret boss. She said she didn't know where it was either, but she could be the boss. She knew she wasn't supposed to be, but she wanted to help me train.

So we went into this darkened room, and we started fighting for fun. That's all I remember, but it was cool. 😅

Bismuth, Lapis, and Peridot went to the courtyard of my old college and sang "Who We Are"! While it was revealed that they were just people in mascot costumes, it was great meeting them!

I had a dream recently where they revealed Sonic's new design for Sonic the Hedgehog (2020)...and it somehow looked even worse than the original design. His body's proportions were more in line with how he is in the actual video games, but his head was...only way I can describe it is as a mix between Bart Simpson, Butthead, and Uka-Uka.

Dream #1: I had some kind of mobile Pokemon collector game and was able to actually reach into the screen when certain special Pokemon (such as shinies, Cosplay Pikachu, etc) showed up and if I got them at the right angle I would pull a small plushie out of my screen. I got one of the costumed Pikachu and some other thing (I think it was like... an Azelf or something) and was trying to get a Shiny Vulpix.

Dream #2 was me eating this edible calendar that was made of blocks of chocolate and I decided to skip ahead and eat my birthday to gain some kind of special power. What this power was I never found out.

I only remember the tail end of the dreams I had last night, and only bits and pieces of it:

  • A screwed-up version of the climax of The Hunchback of Notre Dame where really weird stuff was going on like characters inexplicably surviving incredibly long falls and Chernabog being there for some reason and doing nothing of note. I remember it ended with Frollo falling like he did in the movie, but instead of landing in the lake of melted copper he landed in someone’s living room, which was decorated for Christmas. He proceeded to open up everyone’s gifts for no explained reason while the epilogue of the movie (to my memory) played out normally.
  • I was Mario in Super Mario Odyssey exploring a giant McDonald’s and finding Peach and Tiara on a beach that was somehow in there. We then loaded up in a van with some of my family members and drove away.

Last night I dreamed I'd made some sockpuppet account on some random web site (probably one that doesn't even exist or I'm not actually on, since I don't know wtf it was supposed to be) that was called "Hamilton" and all I did was post lyrics from, well, Hamilton and then I got mad when someone figured out what my main account was and was worried I was going to get banned.

...I've never even seen Hamilton (but have heard some of the songs).

Last night I had a dream where I was in a car with a bunch of villains and we were being chased by the cops. We got away luckily. We arrived at some sort of lake that had a platypus in it. We swam in the lake and I fed the platypus. Then I was at my school, but it was this massive tower that was mostly underground. I slid down the banister to the boarding house kitchen, which was right at the bottom. Then I used the terraria UFO mount to fly back up the many floors, before awkwardly jumping out on the ground floor. Then I was back with the villains and we went to the local villain mart or something to talk to the boss. Then we did a couple things and went back to talk to the boss again, but without one of the team members, because they were an annoying idiot. The boss said something about transformers and then dismissed us. Then we went to a similar place in the next town along.

I'll fill this in when I think of something to put here.

I can only remember the tail-end of the dreams I had last night:

  • First it was a Fairly Oddparents episode wherein everyone was treating Poof very badly for some reason (even Cosmo and Wanda!), but they relented and apologized when they saw how upset Poof was. Then the clock struck midnight signaling a new year, and suddenly Timmy was bouncing all over the place in warped versions of various Dimmsdale locations, joyously shouting over and over again that "Poof's not canon anymore!", after which the episode abruptly ended. I should point out that I don't actually hate Poof, so I don't know where this came from.
  • Then some New Year's Day special started, but I got only a little ways into it before I woke up. I only remember one bit where some Sesame Street-esque Muppets were annoying Solid Snake by following him around on his missions while singing an annoying and repetitive song about New Year's Day.

[up]x5- Now I really want a fully animated version of that Hunchback climax.

Anywho, here's one of mine.

I was Killer Frost (the Caitlin Snow version) and there was some sort of tournament between teams composed of people themed around different Elemental Powers. I of course joined the ice team...only for them to start brutally taunting me. When I told them I could be an asset to the team because of my Healing Factor, they...started stabbing me with icicles and kicking me. It was actually really sad. Then they just left me there.

This one does have a happy ending, though: eventually a team of waterbenders took me in instead and asked me to join their team.

[up]Aw, that's nice.

I had kind of a distressing dream last night... the world was partially flooded with this water that was so heavily polluted that it was thicker in consistency, and harder to swim through.

I first found out about this flooding when I saw that one of my favorite YouTubers, a composer of fantasy/soundtrack instrumental music, wrote a song based on this polluted water. The video was titled something like "Polluted Water Music - Drowning in Despair" and the song was a dreary but fast tune on piano and strings.

When I saw this video, I went outside to see if it was true, and I fell into a river of this water. I struggled for minutes to get out, and I think the music from before was actually playing in the background. Eventually, I found this wooden platform I was able to get up on.

Then I wound up in some dark, ruined city where it was just me, and a mysterious man chasing me with a bunch of syringe needles. The needles had this toxin that I somehow knew would kill me... I don't remember what happened.

Well, I had another scary dream a few nights ago, but this one got better. :P

I was a henchman for The Joker. He gathered all of his henchmen together to watch as he punished one of them for failing. I don't remember the name of the one who failed, but he was a redhead like me irl. The Joker strapped him to a desk and inflicted Cold-Blooded Torture involving some sort of Facial Horror. I don't know what it was because I just couldn't look at it. But natch, the Joker was laughing while the henchman was screaming.Eventually, I found an opportunity when nobody was looking to slip away.

Somehow, while running away from the scene, I wound up in a desert. Then EeveeGirlChey showed up. She knew who I was, even though I was in a different body or something, and she wanted to get me away from there. She helped me get away, but I don't remember how (but I want to say it was the Chey Bus. :P)

Well...I can't remember all of it but this was the last segment...

In this dream, I was hanging out working on some piece of alternate history or another (I think I was considering the exact status of Thailand), when...I guess it must have been a friend, was working on selecting the entire earth on his computer. Anyways, I was asking him to do something, it might have been hanging out, when he finally finished doing the selecting. I started picking up all the computers (there were a bunch, scattered around outside. Did I mention we were outside?) and decided to poke fun at him and said that his computer was mine now. He thought it was less funny and went to try to reclaim his computer. In the ensuing argument, someone opened it and one of us or another accidentally hit the "cut" (or "delete") button.

We, and the entire earth, popped out of existence (as he had selected the entire earth earlier on the computer). The laptop floated through space, endlessly...

...until a long time later, some particle or small space rock hit the "undo" button, at which case everything generated back into existence. We both fell to the ground, as did the laptop. Panicked, I grabbed the laptop and deselected the earth, causing it to crash. I remember being afraid I'd cause reality to crash, but I don't think it did.

And then I woke up.
