    1. Zelda dream

      by , Yesterday at 04:28 PM (BahamutZERO's dreams)
      This dream kinda went all over the place...

      The earliest part I remember was that I was programming a video game, but I was at the very beginning of development. Instead of seeing code, my work was visualized as a physical construction I was floating around in. The program was in such early stages that the construction was just sort of a skeleton made of copper wire and fragile cardboard. I was stuck thinking on some problem, something very technical, like a threading issue. I got kinda lost in my thoughts there and felt stuck and a little frustrated.

      Some time later, I was playing a video game, presumably my own game in a later stage. It looked like Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but Link's hat was alive, like Cappy from Super Mario Odyssey. I went to a dungeon. The dungeon was like a grid of very large and empty rooms.

      One of the rooms contained a guy with some sort of a "bonus shop" or whatever (that's what his stand said). I paid him 10 rupees and the room got filled with a puzzle minigame. It was strangely easy and I completed it in like 5 seconds. The guy gave some golden reward item, the item that I went into the dungeon for. Then however, Cappy warned me that he was a scammer, and he gave me fool's gold. I searched for another room, and there I found the REAL bonus shop. Now this guy asked 300 rupees and it was a hard minigame. He gave me the true reward. I guess there's no free lunch in life...

      As I was trying to look for the exit, I came across another room, and this room has a cute black prostitute in it. My dream went quite into detail for this part, but I guess I won't go into that much detail in my DJ entry... well, let's just say I spent some more rupees and my HP got refilled.

      Then I found the exit. Since I found the item, I could now complete the quest. I brought the item to some sort of a shrine. Cappy got a little sad and said goodbye forever to "the old link". Link came out of the shrine, and his gender changed! It's like Link changed into Zelda but it was the same person. Then the game continued as female Link. This part also felt oddly sexual.

      Then I was in some platforming part where I had to climb up some platforms in a jungle-ish area. When I finally got to the top, I found a box. Inside the box was my cat, together with 3 colored packets of wet food and a manual, as if she was a boxed market commodity. I read the manual and it said "Please feed the cat. Open the 3 packets and let her smell them. Figure out which one she likes the most. Then feed her that packet". But I ignored that manual because I know of my cat that she doesn't care what food she gets, so I just gave her one of the packets and she ate it. This is where the dream ended.
    2. Dream - Finding My Way Home

      Dream No. 245 - Finding My Way Home

      I don't remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, I was on the DreamViews forum when one username on the online list caught my eye. The username was “WB” followed by a couple of symbols. I checked out the profile and as soon as I saw the word “Killester” in the about section, I thought “uh oh... WB's got a DreamViews account”. I looked further and it was actually some other Killester girls that made the account; BG was actually the main person on there. All I could do for a few minutes was sit frozen in my chair, in shock, and gripe over the fact that they could see all of my dreams.

      I reloaded the account in a few minutes and found out that it had been deactivated. They must have known that I was on and I was going to do something about it if they didn't. When I was at Killester for classes, I thought to avoid Ms L at all costs as the DreamViews scenario would've still had a big impact. She was at the portables area and I had classes there as well. I timed it so that I waited a few seconds and then followed behind quietly until I got to the place that I wanted to get to.

      The dream changed scenes to actually having a class in the middle of the walkway leading up to the library. In waking life, Mr C teachers PE and woodwork but in the dream, he was teaching RE. I remember sitting on the floor, having bibles in front of all of us. I can remember that AA spoke but I don't remember what she said specifically.

      The scene changed again and I was intending to make my way home from somewhere. For the first part, I was running down the Monash Freeway and ended up travelling almost as fast as a car. When I got off the freeway, I found myself in some neighbourhood that resembled the area behind my church. I soon found out that I had a lot longer to go and started to feel lost. I then saw arrow shaped signs that said “Mulgrave” on them; I figured I would get home by following these signs. After following two signs, I felt completely lost.

      I figured it was time to start calling for Dreamy WB. It was hard to get her in this dream and it felt like forever that I was calling for her. At one point, I told myself to keep on the task. I eventually entered this bushy nature walk and there I elaborated on my intention. As I look up one of the cliffs, examining my surroundings, I yell out “Dreamy WB, I'm lost!”. I continue walking down the track and see all these people appearing, sprouting up from the ground like a beanstalk. I'm now walking through a maze of people, still calling for Dreamy WB who is nowhere to be found.

      I am now going on like a broken record and eventually, someone who looks like WB comes out from behind a bunch of people. It's Dreamy WB and her appearance is that of an ash coloured jumper with black leggings and white canvas sneakers; her hairstyle is the short frizzy pigtail. She held a cute, innocent disposition while standing on the spot, waiting for me to come to her.

      When I stood in front of her, she picked me up and started carrying me back down the path where I originally came from. I felt at ease when she was holding me, almost as if feeling like she was taking me for a leisurely stroll. I was facing in towards her so as she actually saw what was coming ahead, I had my head tucked into hers and admired the scenery that was behind us when I was first looking for her.

      When we got to the end of the path, I said to her, “That's where I came from”. Dreamy WB must have been mistaken since she found out as she turned me around and took me the other way. Along the way, she stopped and spoke to some stranger Asian woman with me still perching on her. She said that if the woman got to the station as soon as possible, she could catch the 4:55 train with Dreamy WB. When we left the woman, I asked what the train thing was about. Dreamy WB told me that the train would be going to a station that I actually recognized the name of, I think it was Glen Waverley. I knew this would be my ticket home, so I asked if I could go with her. She said yes and so now I was hoping the other woman wouldn't turn up because now she couldn't go.

      We got to the station and other members of my family were there. I said to Dreamy WB, “I have to ask them if I can go with you” and she told me to be quick or I'd miss the train. Seeing as though I had to be quick, I didn't ask anyone as I couldn't tolerate a no... I just told them. I went up to my brother and said, “I'm catching the next train with my dream guide”. Before he had time to say anything, I went to locate my dad and I said the same thing. I saw my mum and grandma on the upper floor but couldn't reach them, so just assumed that my dad and brother would pass the information on.

      I headed over to the side of the tracks where Dreamy WB was waiting for me to board the train with her. Just as she was helping me to board the train, I woke up.

    3. Dream - Repair The Friendship & Deceased Vet & The Arch Nemesis Returns

      by , Yesterday at 06:20 AM
      Date of Dream: SAT 16 DEC - 2017

      Dream No. 244 - Separated Sections

      Dream 244 A - Repair The Friendship

      I don't remember how the dream started. From where I do remember, I was in my other grandma's house in the room next to the garage. JSa's dad was in there and he was making an offer to me if I wanted to restore my friendship with JSa. At first he sounded confident but when later on, he started becoming skeptical. He said that something I said online was really bad. I said to him “but that was a few years ago!”.

      After that, he had made his decision that JSa and I could never be friends again. I then go to him, “Well why make the offer in the first place? That was a waste of time”. I don't remember what else happened in that dream.

      Dream 244 B - Deceased Vet
      I was in my brother's room where my mum came in to discuss treatment plans for the cats leg with me and my brother. My mum said that the vet had passed away and so she would see if one of the desk ladies could take her in and have a look at her. That's all I can remember about this dream.

      Dream 244 C - The Arch Nemesis Returns
      I was at my old house, nearly being night time. There was a school test taking place in the dining room. I don't remember how I felt but I walked out on that test half way through and Mrs M was following me to the backyard while trying to call me back in there. I ended up in the backyard in the end and that's where a bully from my primary school was. TS was giving me some really horrid, dirty look, daring me to fight him. I thought to myself “I'm going to get rid of him once and for all”.

      I was to face TS like I would be facing some sort of boss in a game. TS disappeared and what replaced him was some yellow lit-up wall that placed itself up against one of the fences in the yard. There would be all these different amounts of money on the wall and my challenge was to catch the balls that the TS-wall would throw at me and knock out all the values in a certain amount of time. The first time it was easy as it would just throw one ball at me that I would easily catch and throw back. I barely knocked out any money values though when the frequency of balls at me increased to two.

      Time had eventually run out and so the wall reset itself and I had to start again. The frequency of the balls increased quicker this time. It seems like each time I had to start again, TS would be harder to beat. I tried about four or five times and on the last try, there were four balls coming at me that I had to catch. I missed the first few goes but I eventually got hang of it and caught all the balls to throw back at him. When I had lost the last try, I woke up.

      I find this funny; the dead vet scene felt so real that when I woke up, my mum was talking about the cat and so I ask her "Is it true that the vet died or was I dreaming?" and she said "no, he's still around"... Oops!
    4. Dream - Disability Residence

      by , Yesterday at 05:45 AM
      Date of Dream: FRI 15 DEC - 2017

      Dream No. 243 - Disability Residence

      I don't remember what happened at the start of the dream. From where I do remember, I was at some place that looked like The Glen Shopping Centre. No matter what I did in this dream, the dream wouldn't allow me to summon Dreamy WB even though I was in a major crisis. I did eventually gain the confidence to attack all the flying bot-like enemies myself with my available elements. First I used fire on them but that didn't seem to do much damage. Next was electricity which was enough to disrupt the circuits on some of them, making them fall down and die but they weren't all gone.

      The last element I used was ice which made every single one of them shrivel up into a messy prune shape and then fall out of the sky and into nowhere. When I was back on the ground, I tried to see if I could still get Dreamy WB. I told myself that she would be in the carpark of The Glen but when I went into the pitch black complex, I couldn't sense anyone or anything still besides myself and the emptiness surrounding me.

      The dream scene changes to where I am at some sort of nursing home but rather than being for old people, it was for people with any age who had disabilities. I was one of the residents in this home and because I was new, the staff had asked me to introduce myself by sharing my condition with my room-mates. My friends JH and LA was also in my room but JO was elsewhere in the home. There were other room-mates besides JH and LA but I don't remember them from waking life.

      A member of staff had come to check on us. I forgot what they did but they would always treat me like an 80 year old in a typical nursing home. Later on in the dream, my mum and I were at some shop that looked like MYER. The lady from the disability home told me that I was only allowed to chose clothes from one certain colour scheme in the Review section. My mum and I ended up looking at a lot of Review racks across the entire 2nd floor. The lady had soon called us back as it was time to head back to the home. That's all I can remember about this dream.

    5. Onto the world of sex war II! Wait no, got it wrong.

      by , Yesterday at 05:27 AM (Monster tree roots, decayed version.)
      Saturday 16th December 16, 2017

      Forgot most of it already, but on the first dream of the night was watching dream porn because its much better than real porn and because I can just pick it up for myself and started to pick dream guys out and fuck them.

      Back to sleep.

      The dream starts in a mountain, and me on a bus. Become lucid and teleport from the bus to the top of an airplane, ridding it. When I am on the plane quickly open up a random portal and expect for nothing to happen again but weird enough I am taken to a world where the WWII is still going on.

      The first thing that happens is that the machine I am on, or airplane gets shot down. Right after I see that they have weird weaponry… uh, no actually they seem to be living beings?

      Apparently, the people are fighting using experimented on creatures from nature because why not? I get mad at this and decide to participate in the fight. The people who are Nazis are against it while the others are pro it since they have nearly won the war by using them and plan on keeping the experiments.

      I get mad again so join the Nazis, or try to because they try to capture me. I keep killing their military people and they keep getting further and further away from victory, they currently hold only a few weapons and a few islands with military might.

      The only reason why they have not been wiped off by bombing is because they have hostages from all over the world, but the others plan on using their creatures to get them back.

      I get captured on purpose but wake up, damn.

      Back to sleep.

      Walking around somewhere, become lucid midway and teleport back to get captured again.

      In the process kill 2 other guards and find a few guys who are in hiding… wait I was supposed to be captured GAH! The guys get really close to me and tell me to help them run away, I try to explain to them that I am trying to get captured to free the creatures away and then most of them leave.

      Out of the 10 team people I found, only 2 remained who agreed with me. One of them wants to talk it out with the government and I say that’s ridiculous. The other one says that he heard they experimented on humans here and that if one of the human experimental warriors defeats the creatures they will stop the whole thing, since they will be inferior goods.

      I agree with him and tell him I can help with that, he asks me if I am an experimental warrior and just… agree so that we can understand each other. The guy is kind of cute actually and has a good body and I feel a really bad need to fuck him but first things first!

      Tell them we need to get captured but they are afraid they will get killed or tortured or experimented on. I tell them not to worry and that I will protect them so long as they stay with me.

      The first guy says he will not partake and he wants to run away because the union is already coming together to exterminate us so I just help him out and wake up.

      Back to sleep.

      So there is this cute guy next to me, I try to get up and feel heavy, become lucid and then get up and kiss him. He pushes me aside and I am like “What?” then recall… oh yeah.

      He asks me what was that for and starts to go about not swinging that way, so I just force him to swing whatever way I want him to by controlling his brain chemistry and memories then just tell him I understand, caress his face and get outside the cavern he took me into for protection.

      “We have a lot of work to do dude” tell him and bring him outside with me. He seems to get nervous and I feel victory is mine already. We get into sight of a… uh, one person from the Nazis. He shots at us and I grab the bullet then we continue walking.

      There is someone behind who shots at the guy so I take the bullet for him, there is no scar even but he gets worried so I let some blood out and fake been hurt. He asks me if I am okay and I say yes then smile at him and keep going towards the other guy and explain to him the situation while keeping his bullets in my hand.

      The other one would have shot again but made sure to thoroughly trash him before continuing. The guard says alright but they will take us to their prison. I agree not to kill him so long as he keeps my companion safe who keeps getting more flustered by the minute as we move on.

      When we arrive to the prison, I wake up again.

      Back to sleep.

      Talking to… oh yeah, get lucid when I see the guy and feel my weight. So what were we doing? Where is the guy I was trying to fuck with? Ask the guard and he says he was taken.

      I go pursue and the guard tries to stop me so just zap him. He thinks that zapping is my ability and tries to come with gloves made of plastic but just punch him out of my way. When I find the guy he is tied and in a weird looking room, so just untie him and ask him what he is doing there.

      He said he was taken hostage and we are to be killed, give him a barrier and teleport outside. When I am outside find a giant whale coming so zap the water and it looks weak, why? I feel weak in this world so do it again but with my hand inside the water which leaves the whale out of it and they retreat.

      Feel another presence and teleport there, on the backside of the island there is another one, a mole this time. Make an earthquake eat away at their troops and take out the mole just to make sure they understand the position we have been placed unto.

      Now that everyone is aware of human experiments been stronger they will stop carrying out stupid experiments on random animals from their planets, make sure of this by mind fucking all the humans on this planet then get back to the cell.

      When I get back his cell was half destroyed from the outside and they can see inside. I make sure to erect a new barrier to make us invisible except for a small window. Ask the guy when the guard will come and explain the situation.

      He says it will be a good 2 or 3 hours so take my sweet time explaining to him and he says we should leave. I agree with him and fake tripping while standing up and falling on top of him. Look him in the face and kiss him again then retreat.

      The guy grabs me by my hand and so I kiss him again, he does not resist me anymore ha! We start to make out and as soon as possible start to remove his clothes. He gets all shy so make sure to brainwash him again and push him against the wall.

      Eventually get him to have sex with me and what not, but a stupid guard comes cause he heard weird sounds which gets him down, I get mad and create another barrier but the guard seems to be able to see us.

      I make us both invisible and explain this to the dude but he is sweating and makes us visible to the guard again. So take us out of there, fly to the nearest location and see that the Nazis are following.

      So again get mad at them and drop bombs on them to destroy their last nests, try to nuke them but it seems nukes do not exist in this world so just keep bombing them.

      We finally arrive to a peaceful site and I brainwash the people, force my way into an empty house and everyone believes that is my house. Made clothes for the guy on my way there and once we arrive start to remove them again.

      I have my way with him before waking up and take such a sweet time fucking him, wake up quite content.
    6. Chivis, been so long!

      December 10th sunday 2017

      I am walking on the house. Become lucid wen I realize my weight is wrong and quickly teleport to DW.

      Once I am there start to think on ways to finish my goals, but like normal it is quite difficult to remember the stupid goals, especially when there is a little kid following me around and asking for something, end up telling him to go away and teleport somewhere within the planet. Forgot what I had to do, but remember it is something important, try to remember but wake up.

      Back to sleep.

      Reading something online, become lucid while doing so and get back to DW. Not sure what I should be doing, so just go with whatever the people from this planet are playing at.

      Find that they are actually quite immersed in finding some kind of super drug for war, even though it is peaceful right now so help them out and transform every single of their beloved experiment subjects into really powerful war foes.

      The only problem for them is that well, they are going to fight against humanity now. They start to pull their weapons and try to take them out but I made sure to give them a carapace that can withstand bullets easily and start to watch the massacre.

      Back to sleep.

      Walking on the street, don’t see much other than the beautiful moon on top of me, become lucid while walking and remember about the last dream. Wonder if this is the same place? Maybe it is.

      Keep on walking and find a few buildings abandoned and a lot of people in hiding. Also find a lot of military people with heavy artillery.

      They do not know why the hell I am out there and tell me to hide but I refuse to, so one of them shots me with his anti-tank gun and I stop the bullet with my fingers, then toss it aside “Why so aggressive?” ask him, he assumes I am one of the monsters.

      Well yeah but not really, tell him that I was the one to create the creatures after Scanning and confirming that they are the real ones.

      Anyways, end up meeting some of the creatures and patting them for been so good at cornering humanity, then let them have a new power that allows them to spread the disease on other creatures to corner humanity once and for all, wake up shortly after.

      Back to sleep.

      Sitting on a park, because parks! Get lucid while standing up and start to see that the place is more… green? Oh nice!

      I AM in the same location and it seems the disease spread super quickly since they first worked on spreading and then on cornering, most of humanity is right now too weak to fight back and only the military are holding their own.

      Some people were compatible with the disease and are helping to fight back, so I start to teleport randomly to help out my little ones to kill those special humans.

      I take out all but one, cause she is a bit far from my location and I want to be dramatic. First to arrange for my babies to bring me to her, so while we are at that I wake up.

      Back to sleep.

      I am riding on a really big dog… which makes me scared and nervous and stop thinking for a few seconds until I feel too heavy. First think it is the fear then get lucid from it, stupid big dog!

      It is one of the creatures I created to fight back humanity. The girl is not yet close to us so tell the doggie to be faster and he runs instead of walk.

      She is a few hundred miles away from us, so I give him even more speed.

      When we arrive the girl has already achieved a great deal by giving powers to humans so I go with them for a few minutes and see what they are doing.

      They are fighting back, since they have the same strength and speed right now. I am doing nothing pretty much, they think I am incompatible with the powers Eventually followed through and when they were about to kill one of them I go ahead and rip apart the arm of one of the persons in the group.

      The girl takes a look back instantly and all of them get pushed through with TK away from my doggie. I quickly grab him and teleport him to safety “Do not hurt him” tell them, the girl jumps at me to punch me.

      I prepare to dodge when she teleports behind me and gets stabbed by an ice spear from behind, along with every single human compatible with the disease I spread around the world, do not want them to be in my way.

      Back to sleep.

      On the top of a mountain, become lucid while walking down and then remember about the ToTY from DV, so quickly make the mountain become snowy and then start to slide down. Before I reach the end, make a hole on the planet and continue going forward.

      I expect to arrive to a new location but… this is DW, just get to the other side of the world while forcing myself to go faster and not go back up when reaching close to the center and making a protection. How boring!

      Back to sleep.

      Transfer myself back into a dream and then force it onto the memory lane. I start to gain some memories back and then… wait what? I forgot those were fixed memories! Wonder how would it be to release the final seal.

      Keep on walking, find myself before second dream death quite depressed, didn’t know I was depressed over that? Take that back, go forth to first dream death, nothing notable there other than me been weak due to too many seals.

      Find in my childhood a few memories from been mad at the world and scared at reality at the same time, I remember only half of it, so take back what I must and continue down when I see Chivis… CHIVIS! I remember have to fight her.

      Quickly take that step on memory lane and then teleport myself to her in BW, take her out of there and break BW as a sealed place.

      Forget completely about coco and just bring Chivis with me, she seems to be mad about last time but I just say sorry and allow her to fight back.

      She throws several feathers at me which I stop with my hands while changing myself, my arm dissolves and dissipates, create a new one and shot at her some bombs… everything seems weaker? I quickly realize that this is but a WILD dream so make a small shield and layer it before waking up and going back to sleep.

      Back to sleep.

      As soon as I get inside the dream there seem to be explosions in front of me and also my weight is weird… right! Quickly Make another barrier and teleport above Chivis to strike her but she moves away and then shots me with her feathers.

      Teleport in front of her and bring down a sun to explode in front of her. One of her feathers repels all hydrogen and another one all helium making her immune to my solar explosion but destroying the planet we were in. Contract the sun into a white dwarf and explode it for a supernova but she blocks heat and matter altogether while shooting more feathers at me and then teleports in front of me.

      She starts to attack with her beak and throw more feathers, I keep changing my powers and barriers while dealing with her, eventually she gets one hit in and manages to dissolve my arm; barely make it on time changing my DNA to avoid further damage and then heal myself.

      Throw a black hole at her but she blocks gravity using her feathers, then go ahead and make a big bang out of it which she blocks the same way while attacking, we keep going back and forth until I get a bit bored.

      “Hey Chivis!” I say, she gives herself a power to use voice as a power and then enhance sound to be able to move at the speed we are moving so I can hear her. I block that fucking loud noise coming from her and then absorb that energy to shot her back, which she dodges hm?

      OH right… she is still from back in DW, I was sealed and she has not had any upgrades from me. Clap and make ice chards come at her, she blocks them with a carapace created right on time and then make teleportation with earth control and go through the carapace, she goes at me full speed and I make suns explode all around me, we get away from the explosion range while fighting and finally condense all matter in the universe where she is moving at to make a big crunch. She tops time from flowing and this way manages to escape the big crunch but I create so many more that she actually has to escape the other way around.

      Make a changing barrier around her and wrap her with it, tell her I want her to fight Brandon and that if she manages to win against him will give her an upgrade.

      She does not believe her self to need an upgrade and gets mad so the real fight starts with her. Too bad however that I got even stronger since unsealing myself 3 times.

      She flies at me in a straight line. I prepare a big crunch when she tosses a feather to stop time and one to teleport, goes straight through it and then throws another one that creates dust and another one to dull the senses. I fly back slightly and make a movement to create enough matter to push everything around. She is above creating a wave of feathers to attack so I raise my hand and create a magic circle, a barrier and start to shot the wave of feathers with a wave of different powers then run through the barrier and start to read each feather with my DNA and dissolve it, then wrap her in my DNA. She tries to crush it and I keep changing it, so she creates a wave of lava around us to dissolve my body. I absorb the heat and move it over to her who then creates an absolute zero layer, I end up destroying all matter in this universe making everything go into absolute zero and finally reach her, tap her with my hand and block her powers temporarily “So you gotta win ok girl?” tell her before letting her go and waking up.
    7. The Dark Tower – Riddle Me This

      The Dark Tower – Riddle Me This

      I am on board Blaine the monorail. I look around and see that Roland, Eddie, Susanna, and Jake are here. I wonder where MoSh is? It seems like I haven’t seen him around lately. Now Roland is insulting Blaine. He is saying how rude he could be if Blaine was not a mere gadget. He says he could call Blaine a sucker of cocks if he had a mouth. The others are just shocked at this, but I think I might laugh. I stifle my laughter, thinking this might not be the best course of action. Roland and Blaine go back-and-forth for a bit, calling each other rude and stupid, but then they finally come to an agreement. If we can stump Blaine with a riddle, then he has to stop at the end of the track and let us off. If not, he’s just going to slam into the end and turn everyone inside of him into paste. I figured this shouldn’t be a problem for getting everyone off. But it would be best to stall so that we can get the ride across the wastelands. Roland then asks Blaine to leave while we consult with each other. Blaine agrees, and screen at the front of the room turns red.

      Roland lays out a plan for how we are going to do this. Roland says we need to judge how good Blaine is at riddling, and we will each tell one riddle. Susanna first, then Jake, then me, then Roland, and Eddie will go last. After we have chosen riddles, Roland touches the screen at the front of the room to indicate to Blaine that we are ready. Blaine seems more than happy to get going on the contest. Susanna tells a very simple riddle that Blaine seems annoyed by. What has four wheels and flies? Blaine response that it is the village garbage wagon. He says if we have no better riddles than that he will regret saving our lives for even a short time. I also can’t help but notice that he hesitates slightly before giving the answer to this riddle in spite of how easy he says it is. Roland then tells a riddle, which Blaine sends the answer back immediately. No hesitation. It is my turn now. Alive without breath, as cold as death, all in mail never clinking, never thirsty ever drinking. Blaine’s answer is immediate. A fish. Jake tells a riddle, and finally Eddie. What is no sooner spoken than broken? Silence.

      Blaine is just starting to say something when a sliding door at the back of the compartment opens. Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series walks in. We all do a double take. She says this does not look like the Hogwarts Express. I tell her it isn’t. I tell her I can get her back, however. Blaine insists no one is going to leave unless he says so. I ask Hermione if she has a riddle to tell the train? She asks why she would tell a riddle to a train? I tell her the train is an artificial intelligence, and it likes riddles. We are in a riddling contest. Hermine he said she’s heard of artificial intelligence, but never seen one. I tell her now she has. Hermione tells a riddle. First think of a person who lives in disguise, who deals in secrets and tells naught but lies. Next tell me what's always the last thing to mend, the middle of middle, the end of end? And finally give me the sound often heard during the search for a hard-to-find word. Now string them together and answer me this, what creature would you be unwilling to kiss? Blaine comes back with an answer immediately. He does concede that that one is very interesting, however, saying that it’s four riddles wrapped up in one. Hermione still wants to know where we are? Eddie just says she came through the wrong door. Blaine says he hopes we learned something useful. He asks if we need more time to consult? Roland says yes. The screen turns red.

      Hermione goes to the door she came through, but it closed after she entered. There’s no way to open it from this side. Hermione he doesn’t understand how this is possible. Roland says she must be one of our ka-tet. We decide that Roland will tell riddles to Blaine on his own for a while. He touches the screened indicate he is ready to continue. We ride on while Susanna, Jake, and Hermione try to figure out how to open the door. Eddie seems to have zoned off into some other world inside his mind. Roland cranks out the riddles, and Blaine cranks out answers. I go over and talk to Hermione. I ask if anything strange happened before she came in? She says no, she had just been helping Neville look for his missing toad. She had been opening the door at one of the compartments, but instead of walking into a passenger compartment she walked into here. She hadn’t intended to step into the room, but the train had bumped and sent her stumbling forward. I tell her I will get her back to the Hogwarts Express. Susanna mutters that I am assuming we get out of this alive. Hermione asked what she means by that. Susanna did not mean to say that, and she looks regretful. Hermione at this point is 11 years old, and I don’t think Susanna intended to burden her with the full truth. But now it’s too late, it’s either the truth or lie. Susanna tells Hermione that Blaine is malfunctioning. And if we don’t stump it with a riddle before we reach Topeka, it’s going to run itself off the track and kill us all.

      This continues for a while, until Blaine says we’re running out of time. I noticed Eddie still seems zoned into another dimension. After Roland runs out of riddles, Jake tell some from his book. Blaine solves all of those very easily as well. Then I tell if riddles that I remember. Blaine answers all of those as well. Even a couple that I thought might have been rather secure in their dimension. Hermione even has a few riddles. Blaine is apparently not fooled by riddles from the Harry Potter world. It seems that we are now out of riddles. Blaine asks everyone here once more if we have any riddles? He asks Roland of Gilead, Oy of Midworld, Jake New York, Susanna of New York, Raven Outworld, and Hermione of Outworld. The only one he conspicuously skips is Eddie. And yet it is Eddie that speaks up and says he has a few riddles to pass the time.

      Eddie hesitates for a bit, and then asks the same riddle we started with. What has four wheels and flies? Blaine is clearly annoyed. He says that Eddie is too stupid to even remember that one has already been told. It’s the village garbage wagon. And yet, in spite of the fact that this riddle has already been told, Blaine gives off the slightest pause before answering. Eddie asks Blaine another one. A big moron and a little moron walk out onto a bridge. The big moron falls off. Why didn’t the little moron fall off? There are some strange clicking noises, and then Blaine starts bitching. He whines that is not a proper riddle and says he will not answer. Roland says if Blaine refuses to answer, he has lost the contest. Roland asks if this means Blaine cries off? Blaine says no. He seems to stammer a bit, and then says the little moron didn’t fall off because he was a little more on. He says he feels soiled from answering that riddle. Eddie rubs his finger and his thumb together, and when Blaine asks, Eddie says that is the world’s smallest violin, playing My Heart Pumps Purple Piss For You. This goes on for a bit longer. Lights in the room are flashing, the walls are not staying opaque, and I think Eddie may have broken Blaine’s brain. Voice of little Blaine keeps telling Eddie to stop, says that he’s killing Blaine, but what exactly was Blaine trying to do to everyone on board? So Eddie keeps telling his bad riddles, why did the dead baby cross the road? Because it was stapled the chicken.

      Finally it seems the Blaine circuits have completely shorted out. The walls become permanently opaque, the lights go dim except for some emergency lights, and the train is now just coasting forward. We are going to crash. Everyone gathers at the back of the room, and I create a stasis bubble around all of us. So when we crash, in spite of things flying around the room in disarray, no one is hurt. The door that Hermione entered through is even forced open. We force it open the rest the way, and I see the Hogwarts express on the other side. Hermione goes quickly through, and then something collapses blocking the way. A ladder drops down from an escape patch in the ceiling. I am figuring we are all going to go through it, but instead I wake up.

      The Dark Tower – Jake’s Rescue

      Dark tower. I am with Jake. I am in Jake. I am Jake. There is a really stinky ugly gross disgusting guy that is leading me through what seems to be a maze of narrow alley ways and junk piles in the city. He is also an asshole. He seems to have named himself Gasher, and he refers to himself as my pal, but I like him about as well as I like intestinal flu. And his disease is something much worse than intestinal flu. He has big oozing pustules all over his face, and the smell of decay is coming from them. I think I might vomit. He keeps telling me to go faster. I tell him that I cannot go any faster because I’m a kid. He says that better not be true or he’s going to have to smack me upside the head. I say if he does that then I’m going to have to rip his dick off. He says to go ahead and do that, because it hasn’t been much good to him for quite some time. He says he can’t even piss without it burning. I don’t really want to hear any stories about his dick. I figure it is probably about to fall off. So I use some energy and move a bit quicker. I know that Roland is following us. In spite of Gasher’s certainty that Roland will not be able to follow, I know he is. We descend through a sewer access cover into some dark tunnels. I have to use my night vision to see where I’m going. It seems the Gasher doesn’t need to bother with seeing at all. I hear a crash back along the path we have taken, and briefly wonder if Roland actually stumbled into one of the booby traps. But that thought doesn’t last very long. Gasher, however, seems fully convinced that the booby trap worked. I see no reason to try to convince him otherwise.

      The asshole sure likes to smack Jake. I’m not allowing that. Every time he does, I block it or dodge it. He gets annoyed that. He says I’m being pert, and I had better not be such when I meet Ticky. We finally descend from the pitch black tunnels into a tunnel that looks better maintained, and it is lit by neon lights. We follow that until we come to the hatch of a submarine. Gasher activates an intercom and says he’s brought the kid, meaning me. The guy on the other side asks for a password. Gasher says they should know his voice by now. The guy on the other side insists on a password. Gasher is having problems. He can’t remember the password. He looks at me and says I’m going to have to help my old pal out. I say I don’t see any pals around here. He tries to smack me and I block it. I tell him if he wants a favor that’s not a very good way to get one. He takes the scarf off of his head, revealing a disgusting oozing pustule covered scalp, and that almost makes me want to vomit again. Everything about this guy makes me want to vomit. He pulls a small paper from the folds of the scarf and hands it to me. He says he needs me to read what’s on that paper. The word bountiful is written. So let me get this straight… You have the password written down on a piece of paper, which I’m sure your friend Ticky would not approve of, and you can’t even read it yourself? Gasher tells me to stop being pert. But he doesn’t even bother trying to smack me this time. I go ahead and read the password to Gasher. He passes this on, as he slips of paper back into the scarf and covers up the abomination that is his head. The guy on the other side of the door accepts the word bountiful and opens up.

      We passed through an airlock, and another of these patches, and into a room that looks like it’s a refurbished missile silo. There is a guy that reminds me of Khan off of Star Trek sitting casually over large chair in the center of the room as if he thought it was a throne. He voices surprise that Gasher was able to remember the password. The Tick-Tock Man starts talking to me but I’m not paying a whole lot of attention. I’m looking around the room to see what possibilities for getting out there are. There is a woman in there who has a laugh like Bellatrix Lestrange. She looks a little like Bellatrix as well. Ticky is finding her laugh to be very annoying. He tells her to shut the fuck up. He is interested in a watch that I have. But watch is not working, it is going forwards and backwards at irregular rates. Ticky says he wants that. I can kind of see why, he has a small glass case with what appears to be a miniature grandfather clock in it. Ticky says something else and Bellatrix starts laughing again. Apparently he’s had enough of it though. I can barely see him move but he threw a knife that embedded itself and Bellatrix his throat. Bellatrix falls to the ground and bleeds out. Ticky’s wanting to know a lot of information I don’t have. He is wanting to know how to start up a huge number of computers that are hidden underneath the city of Ludd. I told him I have really no idea how that stuff works, but I guess I could take a look at it. He gets immediately pissed and says that I’m not going to get anywhere near them.

      I tell Ticky I can’t figure out his computers without seeing them. I see a Oy in a vent. Roland caught up. I hear him telepathically. He says he is outside, there’s going to be a diversion and he needs me to let him in. Ticky is still wanting information. I figure if we needed distraction, I’ll give him some information. So I reveal the fact that Gasher wasn’t able to remember the password. He has a hidden on a piece of paper in his scarf, and he wasn’t even able to read himself. He had to have me read it to him. Gasher announces that he’s going to kill me for that. Ticky is taking my accusations seriously. He wants to see the scarf. Gasher pulls out a knife and backs away and says that he doesn’t really want to stab Ticky, but he will. Ticky does not take that as a serious threat. I look for the button to open door. I can hear Roland telling me telepathically to let him in. Oy comes in through vent and decides to rip up Ticky‘s face. That freaks him out, and he is now blundering around the room yelling and screaming because I think Oy just popped his eye. He throws Oy off, and tries to grab me. I am headed for a control panel, but I don’t make it. I end up in Ticky‘s throne. There’s a gun there. I grab the gun. My thoughts of ripping his dick off for a bit too strong, I shoot Ticky in the balls. That apparently causes an excruciating level of pain, and he can no longer come after me. Now the doors open by themselves. Roland comes in guns blazing. Blows everyone in the room except for me and Oy away.

      Now it is time to get out. An alarm is blaring everywhere, and I think this whole place is about to come down. There is a voice in the machine. That is the voice of Blaine the mono, Blaine the pain. It is asking if we know riddles? I know I used to have a book of riddles in my backpack, but that got dropped along the way. Roland collected it. So my answer to that question is yes. Roland’s answer to that question is also yes. A silvery sphere appears to guide us out of the underground disaster area. We follow the sphere, but in addition to the place falling apart, all of the people down here seem to have gone mad. Many of them are committing suicide. We come to moving platform, and write it the rest the way. It transforms from a level platform into a movie set of stairs, and escalator, and we emerge at what appears to be a train station. There is a monorail parked here. It’s a large pink monorail, although it has no cars attached. We have found Blaine the mono.

      The Dark Tower – A Bridge to Doom

      I am walking with the others along an old road. For while it is hard to see anything around us, because the road sits down below ground level. We finally come to a bridge. It is a large suspension bridge, although it doesn’t look like it is in the best of conditions. I think Eddie might be sick. He says the heights have never been one of his favorite things. Roland asks if he thinks he’s going to be able to make it? He says now is the time to admit that if it is the case, and we will find another way. I can see that Eddie is looking across the bridge to a point where a lot of it is broken away and it looks like we will have to cross on top of a large curved pipe. That doesn’t look particularly easy. After considering it for a bit, he says he’ll make it just fine. I tell him if he needs help I will help him. And also his Witchblade will. If he slips and falls, it will not let him fall. It will shoot a tendril or rope to grab hold of something more solid, and then it will pull him up. So we start across the bridge.

      Eddie is doing his best not to look down. Roland and Susanna both seem OK, although Susanna seems a little uneasy with her artificial legs. She has gotten used to walking on them, but this is something new. Jake seems to think this is fun. He seems to have no fear heights, and he is making his way across the bridge as if there was nothing wrong with it. We are making our way across to quite easily. We come to the part where we will have to walk across the curved pipe, but there are cables to the sides of it so that we can use them as hand rails. Jake runs off across the pipe. That’s when he decides he’s made a mistake, when he looks back and sees his little Billy Bumbler struggling with it. Oy is having trouble getting purchase on the curved pipe with his clawed feet. Jake is trying to urge him across. Eddie seems to be doing OK for now, so I go forward and try to scoop up Oy learned my arms. He doesn’t seem to want to be touched by anyone except Jake. I told him that I can carry him across the gap. Jake is also trying to reassure him, telling you it’s OK and let me pick him up. Finally he lets me scoop him into my arms. I look back and ask Eddie if he will be OK? I say if he has trouble, I can come back. He says he will be OK. So I carry Oy across the gap in my arms.

      There is an asshole at the other end of the bridge now. It is the asshole Gasher wants to take Jake back to his Tick Tock Man. He’s holding a grenade up over his head and saying that we had better cooperate or we will all ride the handsome. I think that means he’s going to blast all of us into the next world. The idea that the grenade might be a dud comes to mind. The asshole says that he wants to take Jake with him, but everyone else will be able to leave. People are getting angry when Roland seems to be considering complying with it for the time being. Probably because if the grenade goes off, even if the blast doesn’t reach us it will probably destabilize the bridge enough to make it fall. So everyone would die. Eddie says the grenade might be dud. That seems logical considering it’s probably pretty old, but it doesn’t seem safe to count on that. Plus, I am remembering from the books that it is not a dud. And then Jake says he should make the decision for himself. He doesn’t wait for Roland or Eddie or any of us to come up with a plan, he heads off across the rest of the bridge towards the asshole.

      The asshole says he thought we would listen to reason. Eddie is saying that Jake should stop, there’s no saying that Gasher will let us leave even if he has Jake. He tries to say he’s not that much of an asshole, if he was he would have told us to throw our weapons over the side. But he didn’t because we’re going to need them in the city. Oy, still in my arms, now wiggles his way free and goes chasing after Jake. Jake catches Oy in his arms as they meet up. Asshole wants Jake to throw Oy over the side, but Jake’s only response is fuck you. I am thinking maybe I could telekinetically contain the explosion if the grenade kills off. I start to follow Jake so I can get a better view of the hand holding the grenade. The asshole says to stop right there or will all ride the handsome. He moves away from the end of the bridge and disappears between a couple of buildings. Just a little bit after that I hear a loud explosion. The grenade wasn’t a dud…

      The Dark Tower – From The Outside

      This is another dream we’re not a lot seem to happen, there was just a lot of talking. I am with the Dark Tower people, and everyone seems to be telling their stories. I am wondering why I am even there, unless someone is going to attack it seems pointless. Roland is talking about their ka-tet, how they were all meant to come together. That just results in me feeling more like an outsider since I’m not truly one of them. So I just sit there listening, without actually contributing anything. Roland is saying that it seems everyone else can read each other‘s minds to a certain degree. He says he can’t do that entirely, because he’s not a full member of the ka-tet. I want to tell him that it’s not him that doesn’t belong here it’s me that doesn’t belong here. Finally it gets dark out. Everyone else goes to sleep except for Roland, he is standing watch. There is a large city up ahead that I know to be the city of Ludd. I hear drums playing from within the city. It sounds like a distant rock concert. I can’t hear any of the instruments, but the drums would be audible furthest away anyhow. My imagination seems to fill-in guitars and vocals in the background though I can’t quite hear what the words are. Roland asks if I’m OK? For some reason I don’t just say yeah. For some reason I say that Eddy got out of his prison that was heroin addiction, Susanna got out of her prison from her mental illness, and yet I’m still in mine, I guess you could call the dreams a work release program? And there’s no escape pending. Roland says we are all in a prison of some kind. He says he did not choose the quest for the tower, it chose him. He may have preferred to settle down, there was a woman he knew long ago he would’ve liked spend the rest of his life with. That’s not what Ka had in store. At the same time, there’s no reason to give up. There’s no telling when a door might open up into my prison or his prison and let us out.

      2017, 12-14

      The Dark Tower – River Crossing

      I am with Roland, Susanna, Eddie, Jake, MoSh. We are all making our way along a very old road. In the distance up ahead I can see what looks like a city. It looks like the type of city I would see in my own world, but it is clear that is not where we are. Eddie seems to think it looks like New York. I am not sure what city it could be, but I get a bad feeling about it. Part of me thinks we should go around it, but another part says there we have a train to catch there. We cannot go around. Before we get there however, we approach a small town. The town looks to be abandoned with many buildings that are falling down. Roland however says that he has a feeling there are people there. Eddie asked if they’re friendly? Roland asks if a strange dog may bite? In other words, he doesn’t know. We start making our way through the town at a rather slow pace. The purpose is so that they don’t feel threatened by a quick approach, but also we don’t look like we’re scared and easy targets. We come to an intersection. It crosses at right angles to the one we’re on. Roland picks up a rock and throws it at a metal box that’s hanging over the street. There is a loud clang, a bell rings, and a flag pops out of the box. It is a green flag that says go. Eddie thinks it is an old version of a street light, Susanna thinks that Roland just did something stupid, MoSh seems occupied with something that he sees off to the left. He is looking at what appears to be a large courthouse or church.

      As MoSh is watching the building, a couple of people emerge. One of them is an old man, and he is leading an old woman. The old woman seems hesitant and nervous, but the old man seems quite excited to see us. The old woman keeps asking if we are harriers? The old man says no, he’s never seen a harrier with a weapon like that. He is indicating the guns sticking out of Roland’s holsters. The ones with the sandal wood grips, clearly they are distinct weapons of a gunslinger. We approach the two, and the man looks at the guns in awe. He says that we are no harriers, but there is a gunslinger with us. Roland speaks to them in a very respectful manner. I think he is using what they call the high speech, but I can’t be sure since my translator translates everything pretty much equally. As he speaks to them, the old woman’s face lights up. She says that he is a gunslinger. I take a closer look at her and see that she has no eyes. That is how come she did not know for sure he was a gunslinger until she heard him speak. Roland lets the blind woman feel one of the guns. We follow the old people back through the courthouse. Behind it there is a hidden oasis. They have a beautiful garden back there, and I can see they also have areas where they grow their own crops. They keep it all well hidden from the main streets so that roving harriers do not become aware of it.

      There is some more old people there. Two of them are twins, and the first thing that pops into my mind are Fred and George Weasley when they tried to cross Dumbledore‘s age line and became old. There is an elderly woman there who seems to be their leader. She is no doubt the village elder. She asked us if we will come break bread with them, and then palaver. She says she can see we are on a quest, though she knows not what we are seeking. Roland says that we are seeking the Dark Tower. She makes the sign of an evil eye, and says that is an accursed place. She says no one who has gone seeking the Dark Tower has ever returned. I feel like telling her that we are going to change that, but I don’t see the point. I noticed that MoSh is talking to a couple of the people. I can’t hear what he saying though. At this point the elder and one of the some of the others lead us through into a beautiful garden. It is here that we sit down and prepare to have our meal. There are no seats or tables, but it is very nice setting. The woman who is the leader announces our presence to everyone who is gathered. She announces Roland’s arrival as the return of the light. It is clear they hold gunslingers and very high esteem.

      The meal, which proves to be a wonderful thing, starts off with a drink that is some kind of a spiced cider. Roland warrens Jake not to drink much or will be carrying him out. I don’t generally like alcohol, but the stuffs pretty good. I noticed for the first time that there is a Billy Bumbler following Jake around. I hadn’t noticed Oy was with us. The people bring us food, and I feel rather bad about eating any of it since I don’t really need to eat in the dream state. But that seems like a rather lengthy thing to try to explain to them, and if I don’t explain and just refused to eat I’ll appear rude. So I decided at some point after this I will restore some of their food supply in exchange. I guess it’s a good thing that I came to an acceptance of eating some of their food because the desert is some kind of amazing cake that I don’t think I could’ve said no to. Soon in the meal is done, as if to announce its completion Eddie let out a loud burp that is acepted as a complement to the chef. The chef deserve lots of compliments. Then most everyone else leaves, because they say it’s time to palaver. The elder is asking if we won’t stay the night, but Roland seems to think we need to move on quickly. They’re also suggesting that we should go around the city, which they have named blood, but Jake seems convinced that we have to go through it. I remember from the books that we have a train to catch.

      The rest of the time is spent exchanging stories and getting as much information about Ludd as possible. There is a single bridge leading in, and once inside there are two groups, the Greys and the Pubes that are always fighting and will no doubt both want to take Jake. There is also talk of Blaine the Monorail. Stories of this train indicate it can go faster than the speed of sound. These people tell of seeing it go by on the railway in the distance and then hearing a huge explosion shortly after it passed, which sounds like a sonic boom to me. They say the train hasn’t traveled for many years, though they can’t seem to agree on how many years. The blind woman insists she has heard a train leaving Ludd and heading in the opposite direction. While the other people in the town don’t seem to believe her, I am thinking she is right… being blind would enhance her hearing and if the wind was blowing right she might have heard even the distant sounds of the train leaving. My mind has wandered somewhat while listening, and I notice MoSh is nowhere to be seen… I wonder if he wandered off or woke up. I don’t have much time to wonder before I wake up.

      Glory of Love

      I dreamed of Altaďr. Nothing much happened during the dream, at least not action wise. But Altaďr wants to get married. Although the bigger question is why in the world would he choose me? He says the one thing he would like to do more than anything else would be to find a way for me to get physically out of this dimension. He says using door that is death is not acceptable, but a door like the one on Roland’s beach or in the haunted house would be. He says that if he can’t get me out of this world, then he’d rather come here. To have the chance to prove that I’m wrong. Prove that I’m wrong when I say that no one out here could ever love me. Prove that I’m wrong when I think there is no love left in this world. And if that second part somehow proves to be true, then he wants to bring love back through the love that he feels for me. I just fail to see how that’s possible considering I’m so fat ugly out here. But he is said he doesn’t care how fat I manage to get, and he says he could never see me as ugly. Besides, he seems to think I might still be able to learn at least some of what it takes to be an assassin, including parkour, and he says that there’s a lot of exercise in doing that. And, of course, doing it with him would be fun. I wish I could. There is no way of making that a reality. I’m stuck here, and he stuck there. Although I wouldn’t consider him stuck.

      Altaďr is singing a song to me. That seems surprising at first, but I think he knows very well that I am more receptive to music than to normal talk. “Tonight it's very clear, as we're both standing here, there's so many things I want to say. I will always love you, I will never leave you alone…. I am a man who will fight for your honor, I'll be the hero you're dreaming of. We'll live forever, knowing together that we did it all for the glory of love. You keep me standing tall, you help me through it all, I'm always strong when you're beside me. I have always needed you, I could never make it alone. I am a man who would fight for your honor, I'll be the hero you're dreaming of. We'll live forever, knowing togetherthat we did it all for the glory of love. Like a knight in shining armor, from a long time ago. Just in time I will save the day, and take you to my castle far away…” It enters my mind that Masyaf could be considered a castle… so he really does have a castle! Now if only he could really take me there… “I am a man who would fight for your honor, I'll be the hero you're dreaming of. We'll live forever, knowing together that we did it all for the glory of love.”

      Altaďr repeats that he wants to get married, even if it can be only in his home world. He wants to get married at Masyaf, to literally take me to his castle. He says we should do it, and invite everyone we know that we can trust and share dreams with and everyone we know from the dream state that we can trust, there’s room at Masyaf! I’m not really sure what to say, I have realized I’ll never get married in the physical world, but doing it in the dream worlds… Altaďr says he thinks my birthday would be the perfect time to do it. He says to at least think about it. I don’t need time to think about it… my answer is yes… YES!
    13. Race to the Treasure (with Laverne & Shirley)

      by , 12-15-2017 at 10:23 AM
      Morning of December 15, 2017. Friday.

      In my dream, Cubitis is featured, though impossibly, the front yard is covered with ice and snow. (I have not lived in or been to Cubitis in real life since 1978, though it remains a common setting in my dreams to this day.) My dream self is not fully aware of the past status of Cubitis, though. It is rendered more as an incidental setting than having real-life associations with my childhood and teenage years.

      I am vaguely aware of my conscious self identity but not of my present address or recent personal history. There is a treasure hunt occurring. I am a part of it, though seemingly not a main participant. Laverne and Shirley as the television characters in the original series are present. They seem to be two of the main participants.

      There is a vivid and otherwise realistic segment where a life-size version of the Matchbox car Alvis Stalwart BP Exploration Vehicle is present. It approaches from the northwest. It is somehow functioning as a snowplow. It is nighttime. I am amazed by its size and power, though I am not sure who is driving it. (I know they are one of the treasure hunt participants.) The loud noise it makes is vivid. I know I have to get to where the treasure might be before it catches up, though I am only walking fast. Despite the snow and ice, I do not feel very cold. At one point as I am moving through the area towards the south, still just south of the front yard of the Cubitis house, the headlights of the vehicle shine on me a couple times. I try to dodge their beam, yet I do not feel that much concern. (This is likely a subliminal factor of being vaguely aware of daybreak and not wanting to wake up yet.)

      Eventually, even though I am still outside, I come to an area that looks somewhat like a large hall of a house, though it is still implied to be an outside area. (By way of real-life comparison, it is probably where the south neighbor’s carport would have been.) I notice fast food wrappers and some papers among piles of books (emergent consciousness symbol) and other items to my left. Laverne and Shirley seem confident about finding the treasure at this point. There may be a letter from someone, or another clue, revealing where it is.

      I realize that we are nearing the end of the area that had been designated as part of the treasure hunt. I wonder if the exploration vehicle is still somewhere nearby. My dream’s setting, still implied to be part of the outside treasure hunt, is now actually a bedroom, though with at least one wall (and possibly the ceiling) missing.

      Laverne and Shirley are now annoyed that the treasure may actually not exist. However, I soon notice an A4-size transparent plastic envelope that is full of shiny gold coins. It is vertically upright and pressed against the south wall just behind some other items. They look like Australian two-dollar coins, though I am aware that they are twenty-dollar coins. Laverne and Shirley are sitting on the bed at this point. I give it to Laverne and soon notice another container of even more gold coins. It resembles the A4-size plastic box that we keep some documents in, though this one is more transparent. I ask Laverne if I can have some of the coins, not considering that they should all be mine anyway, as I am the one who found them. She cheerfully agrees that I should have at least some of them. I awake while looking at the supposed twenty-dollar coins sliding out of the first container onto the center of the bed, ready to be counted. (The bed is oriented from east to west. Its association with where it would be in respect to where my dream started is unknown.)

      The lifelong recurring dream distortion of outdoors transforming ambiguously into a setting of partial indoors appearance or implication towards waking:

      The reason for this seems obvious. Many dream settings have a bilocated essence (especially in the last scene) but also sometimes transform illogically from an outdoor setting into an indoor setting without the dream self (personified subconscious) paying any attention to the impossible change. It seems natural that this happens as the emergent consciousness becomes more active and aware of recent memory and consequently, with obvious but subliminal realization of being in a house in reality, which becomes rendered as such during a sustained waking transition.

      More so, many of my dreams end with more defined dream state indication, in this case, the common “returning to bed” prompt. (Even so, there are sometimes literally prescient threads synthesized into the event, two recent ones for me being precognition relating to our oldest son becoming very ill and another dream that was precognitive of our roof tearing off, resulting in an indoor rainstorm and having to endure a noisy tarpaulin over our house for more than a month now.)

      Not television influence but song influence as dream state indicator:

      The “Laverne & Shirley” influence is likely unrelated to the television show other than the incidental presence of the characters. This is more about dream state indicators, which are very common in my dreams. A dream state indicator (or dream sign as I personally use the term) is a remnant of conscious self association with dreaming and being unconscious (not necessarily recent) carried over into dreams without active lucidity. There are different levels, for example, first-level dream state indicators of beds, being undressed in public (as one does not typically remain dressed while sleeping), not wearing shoes, and many more. In this case, it is song memory, which is more likely to influence the unconscious than stated affirmations. The line is “We’re going to make our dreams come true”. I have not seen the show in many years.

      The unexpected connection to real life:

      The Matchbox car I dreamt of yesterday (the flatbed truck with the house on back, listed as “Truck with Site Office”) as its status as a Matchbox car (though there were two in my dream of different colors of which I explained in that entry) and the Matchbox car of this morning’s dream, which appeared as a life-size vehicle (listed as “Alvis Stalwart” BP Exploration Vehicle), happen to be number 60 and number 61 (following the order they appeared in my dreams on two consecutive days). The question is…why? I have not owned, held, or even seen these toys in real life for nearly forty years that I know of. (I may have seen images on the Internet, but that would not have been for some time. Our children have Matchbox cars, but mostly only the newer ones.) The enigmas that my dreams render have always fascinated me, especially dreaming in every specific detail possible of Zsuzsanna in my childhood years, long before we met and married in real life. A joyful puzzle these Matchbox cars present, possibly. As a child in elementary school, I was in the playground one morning when my best friend Toby crossed the street from the front lawn of the school building. He was rolling the Matchbox car BP vehicle over his face, seeming very intent on showing it off. I already had one like it, having gotten it weeks previously, but I did not tell him at the time.

    14. Halloween-themed dream

      by , 12-15-2017 at 02:37 AM (BahamutZERO's dreams)
      Wow, it's been quite some time since I wrote things in here! I've gained a renewed interest in journaling my dreams lately. My mind got a bit rusty on recalling at this point, so I can't recall as many details for certain as I used to. So let's see how that evolves.

      I had a dream last night that seemed to be all about halloween and horror. The color scheme was very dull and bordered on black-and-white. It featured me, my sister and my friend from Hungary. We were dressing up, but I only clearly remember that the friend was dressed up as Dracula. (I watched the Dracula movie from the '30s a couple weeks ago, perhaps there's a relation to that)
      There was also a rather disturbing scene where we were driving in a dark forest in a car, and the car had a towing crane. In front of the car was my sister dangling on the hook of crane, wrapped in bandages and writhing in pain. We didn't seem to be particularly bothered by it.

      Well, that's all for now!
    15. thugs

      by , 12-14-2017 at 06:02 PM
      I had a dream where someone was bullying me, I could feel the menace in the air and tried to move away and get in a car.
      But the guy just followed me then two of his friends appeared so I was kind of surrounded (or so it felt). They were leaning against my car in sand coloured overcoats, so I couldn't get it. At this point I lost it and hit their heads off the car killing them. I then throw them over the edge of a bridge into the river below but thought they might be found to easily so I brought them back to life and brainwashed them and the other guy into not being a pain/forgetting everything.
      Next I was in a small room, I often get this in dreams, a room where there feels to be no room! the walls and everything were squashed up.
