    South Pole to North Pole

    I was on a ship heading to Antarctica. There was a lot of ice in the water, but our ship was capable of breaking it apart. We were only about a minute away from the mainland. It was summer and the sun was shining. I don't always notice the temperature in my dreams, but it was pretty damn cold. Luckily I like cold temperatures.

    The ship docked at a harbor that had been built on the beach. There were a few other boats at the harbor and many penguins. The penguins were working at the harbor doing things like loading and unloading cargo. It became obvious to me that the harbor was built and operated by penguins.

    The only human I saw was a woman on the beach. See was wearing a bikini and appeared to be sunbathing. I had to reality check at this because sunbathing in a bikini at subzero temperatures is pretty ridiculous.
    The reality check was successful and I became lucid. I'm not entirely sure, but I think the person might have been River. She tends to do weird stupid things like that.

    I decided to go explore the area and talk to some penguins. I jumped off the ship and landed on the docks. I was going to talk to the penguins in the harbor, but they looked pretty busy. So I left the harbor and went deeper inland. For the most part, everything was just snow, ice, and an occasional rock. Not too far away was a glacier that no doubt had something interesting at the top.

    I walked over to the glacier and inspected it. I felt the need to inspect a giant wall of ice for some reason. What I learned after inspecting it was that it was nothing but solid ice. "I bet I can use my claws to climb to the top of this," I said to myself. I transformed my hands and feet into those of a dragon. Being the idiot that I am, I chose to grow claws and climb the wall rather than growing wings and flying to the top. Well I guess it was more fun to climb it than it was to simply fly to the top.

    I pierced the ice with my claws and started climbing. It was fun, but there actually isn't a lot to say about it. After a few minutes I reached the edge and pulled myself to the top. At the top of the glacier I found a penguin base and a giant drill surrounded by several penguin soldiers. The drill was turned on and making a lot of noise. There was a penguin inside the drill who called out to me and said, "Greetings Dragonborn!" I recognized the voice and knew it was Sgt. Byrd.

    I walked up to the drill and yelled to him, "What the hell are you guys doing?" "We're about to dig our way into the north pole and establish a base in enemy territory!" he shouted. It was at this point that I remembered digging from the south pole to the north pole was a task of the year. "The north pole is enemy territory?" I asked. "Yes, it's the homeland of the polar bears," He said. Apparently penguins and polar bears don't get along. Or maybe these penguins are just delusional. Either way I decided to ask if I could help because I wanted to complete the task of the year. "Need any help?" I asked. "Yes, I'll dig and you can push," He said.

    I fully transformed into a dragon and powered up. Byrd started drilling through the ice and I hovered above the drill and began pushing it. Pushing the drill actually made a significant improvement in the speed and efficiency of the digging. I used my fire magic to heat the drill up so that it could melt the ice as it dug. We got through the ice pretty quickly and started digging through dirt. I then started to focus my earth magic in front of the drill to soften and push away the dirt and rocks.

    It wasn't long before we reached magma or some sort of hot liquid. I assumed that this was the outer core. "We have a bit of a problem!" Sgt. Byrd shouted to me. Apparently he didn't think he plan through enough and forgot that it gets pretty hot near the center of the Earth. The ship was starting to overheat, so I brought out my fury energy and created an energy shield around me and the ship. The shield would protect us from the magma and the heat. We moved pretty fast through this layer considering we didn't actually have to dig through anything.

    Things got a bit weird at the end of the outer core. The inner core was creating some sort of energy shield like mine that was keeping the hot liquid outer core at a distance. We were able to pass through this shield however, which was probably because of the energy from my shield. When we went through the energy shield, we fell a fair distance and landed on the inner core. I looked at it and it was made out of crystal. "It'll be impossible to drill through that!" Byrd said. "Wow, the Earth's core is made out of crystal!" I said.

    I noticed that the crystal glowed wherever I touched. I then remembered that usually happens when I come into contact with crystals. Dragonborns apparently have some weird magical connection to them. At that moment I realized that even though the drill can't dig through, I might be able to. "Follow me," I said. I put both of my hands on the crystal and started pushing forward. As I pushed forward, the crystal in front of me disappeared and I was able to create a tunnel. We made it through the inner core pretty quickly with the crystal disappearing on touch. It was pretty cool, but I wish I would have realized we could have walked around the inner core.

    When we got to the other side of the inner core, it was much like before, except gravity was working against us. The ship was built with a flight mode, so I didn't have to lift the ship, but I still had to push. Digging through the rest of the Earth was much like before, except we went through the layers backwards and flying up. I created a shield around us to protect us from the outer core, used earth magic to get through the dirt and rocks, and used fire magic to melt the ice of the north pole.

    When we reached the top, I felt pretty exhausted. I did a lot of work. I lied on the snowy ground and rested a bit. I looked around and I didn't see any polar bears. We appeared to be in Santa's village. "Looks like you'll have to build your base somewhere else," I told Sgt. Byrd. "This isn't a problem," Byrd said, "we'll just build our base a few miles out from here." I got up and said, "I'll help you set up your base if you want." "Soldier, enemy at 6 o'clock!" He shouted while pointing his flipper in my direction. "Wait, what?" I said while turning around.

    As I turned around, one of Santa's elves hit me in the face with a giant candy cane. I fell back onto the ground and he started beating me with the candy cane. Once Sgt. Byrd got out of the drill, the elf turned around and started running. I'm guessing the reason he ran away was because Sgt. Byrd had a rocket launcher. I saw a rocket fly over top of me and hit the elf. Luckily the explosion didn't kill him, but it knocked him out. It was pretty cartoony.

    I'm guessing the reason an elf attacked me is because me and Santa don't get along very well. More elves soon came and Sgt. Byrd started fighting with them. For some reason I was starting to pass out. I think it was due to the dream becoming unstable. When I passed out, I woke up.
