    Triple whammy of dreams today!

    First I was in a car driving across a hanging bridge going across a bay, with huge waves just chilling next to it (they were comically narrow. Less Moses parting the sea and more like Mario Smash Bros special move), but they could go off any moment? We were for some reason evacuating right through the middle, and then the car was a speedboat and we docked on a metal grid boardwalk and a tiny huge wave slammed into us while a hundred metres to the left some skyscrapers were engulfed. The boardwalk led to a hotel but they were all booked and would only let us stay in the hallways if things got bad which was stupid because the second things went bad you couldn't get to the entrance any more. Then I left for higher ground, on foot.

    Second I was in some kind of archaeological museum slash reptile rescue but we could only display certain skeletons because others would upset people?
    So I wanted to substitute one with a turtle and scrounged up all our turtles (one was really badly hurt so I handled it extra carefully). I think I tried to run some computer program over the measurements I made to make a convincing replica skeleton?? No idea. Then a coworker dropped by and all the others told her to intervene but she was like "nah ima help"

    Third dream also had one of the turtles and was during a drought, and the water reservoir I was at was contaminated with something so we couldn't drink from there? And the turtle made all the water go away so we could clean the reservoir and find the source of contamination, and we asked around all my pokemon who let the contamination in because it was from carelessness wrt security standards. the culprit was my first pokemon and i felt so betrayed.
    then everything started looking like an animal crossing game and the players picked up contaminated elements and put down round loaves of flatbread with different patterns on them instead. you cant pick up the loaves you yourself put down, and there was an achievement for collecting all the designs.

    actually, four dreams, but im not going to think too closely about the fourth.

    Don't remember much of it but I just had a strange dream involving motorcity characters. Which is doublely weird because I've never watched that show.

    There's a prophesy foretelling some evil dude being reborn and coming to some place. Another evil dude goes under cover to wait for him. Dude with the same name shows up 'well I might be this dude' second evil dude is for some reason in a suburban house where the family is on vacation, and he's got some kind of many-sided thing which is some kind of map which he's using to recalculate a way to get evil dude no. 1 home (by drawing on it with a marker???) because the family coming back complicates things somehow.

    Cut to the eldest daughter of the household, who is standing outside the back door and trying to cover for them. She edges the back door closed with her shoulder just as her mom comes around the corner all 'do you have an explanation for this?' and they go inside and her other mom comes in the front door and she's got straight brown hair like the daughter and an angular face made harsher by her expression but the first mom has wavy blonde hair. And the inside is very nice, all polished wood, and the stairs are to the left and they can hear the dude muttering at the top and the daughter winces. Then there's an explosion of fire and everyone rushes upstairs, including the much younger son, and the fire clears and the son breathes 'it's alive!' and indeed it is! It being formerly toy dragons the size of a medium sized dog, which are between them and the fleeing evil dudes.

    And then I woke up with the flickering light from an emergency services vehicle down the street coming through my window and thought no wonder I dreamed of fire.

    there was this dream i had where i basically only remember one scene

    there were these like...aliens based off of lions? the setting was like, fantasy, i dunno why they were aliens

    anyway this human adventurer wandered into a lionperson town and was staying at their inn and was Vaguely Discomforted by the fact that basically all the staff were women, also she was being chased by this big lionman who was maybe a criminal?

    anyway the lionman came in and all the inn staff were like >:( and showed up to glare at him, the cook had a knife
    the lionman (who was armed and armoured) took like one look at them all and fled


    it turned out that the lionpeople had a gender ratio of like 80% women, and the men largely had a lionlike instinct to Patrol and so were frequently adventurers or town guards-almost everything else was considered women's work. including all the esteemed stuff like leaders and i think ranchers and the diplomats

    gender roles in lionperson land were interesting because unlike human gender roles they were partially biologically defined-the men, like actual lions, were basically just there for breeding and fighting off unwanted males, the women did basically everything else

    i think they had like...a system of government involving representatives from a bunch of different professions? like there was like 1 man and he was Guard Rep


    for some reason, despite absolutely nothing else being japanese-themed, all the armour was samurai armour

    also there was a bunch of other stuff which i don't really remember, i think someone had like an enchanted wizard's hat or something??? frisk was there for like 2 seconds in like a fusion between a dress and sir aaron from pokemon's clothes??? stuart semple was relevant somehow? the lions were aliens but there was like 0 advanced tech or teleportation or anything and it wasn't like, post-apo (or at least that didn't show up at all in the 'plot' of the dream)? the human adventurer had like no name or anything and i think she was like...ceruleancynic but with dark purple hair??

    frisk's weird clothes actually looked really nice but why

    why were they a. there, and b. in aura guardian clothes???
    just randomly aura guardian frisk in the middle of this setting that was completely unrelated to either pokemon or undertale???

    I dreamed that Rey (from Star Wars) married into some foreign royalty and was really uncomfortable with it, but she had to stick it out because her husband was funding her nighttime vigilantism. At some point for some reason these two women and her handmaid were there and borrowing her sleep clothes and one of them was like "wow it's so nice of you to let us borrow this fancy lingery"(bc that's what it was for some reason) and she was all cheerfully like "it's okay, I never wear it anyway!" And the other woman and the handmaid exchange Significant Looks.

    Oh, I remember why the women are there! They each had a ton of children and some kind of argument she was mediating and at the end they put their children in their silladexes to sleep, but that was the only time that showed up.

    The first woman is super dumb and doesn't notice anything, but the other woman and the handmaid are picking up clues, and also are friends. So time passed and they kept track of weird things about her, Like how fit she is and how uncomfortable in public, and at some point the woman (I'll call her A) A helps capture the red hood and she and the handmaid are talking about it and about how weird it had been and how she felt like she had been manipulated into luring him into a trap, and she was painting him for some reason. Then he showed up around the corner and was all like "you think you can get away with tricking me?" And that's when I woke up.

    last night's dream was...vr themed??

    first there was a vr game involving an ai offering you 4d puzzles. also there was a second secret mode involving trying to cause the ai to crash by messing with its stack pointer. there was a multiplayer mode. i found the second mode super easily somehow (in multiplayer...) and by messing around with a double ended arrow caused its pointer to jump to the shutdown sequence, which annoyed all the other players since they were doing puzzles. so i apologised and left that game and went to another one, called Shrub, in which you played as...a slime mold.
    its name was Molder.

    you messed with the development of plants.
    there were puzzles and you could share your plants. some people completely ignored the puzzles and just made really weird plants or like...made buildings out of plants.
    i took a really pretty alga and made it grow in colonies and then on land and then in specific shapes so instead of being just plankton it was suddenly this moist-area small herby plant and it could grow with the lower half entirely submerged and any bit of it could regrow into an entire plant really easily, it was everywhere, i shared it and got a bunch of annoyed people telling me their waterways got taken over by my fancy multicoloured alga thing

    then i discovered the sequel, Grow, which was like Shrub but there was multiplayer and also various AI 'molders'. and you could control animals as well.
    a few minutes in, after demonstrating it to a friend and making a basic tiny plant cover an entire rock (oh yeah molder could pick up and move small plants, that was helpful), i discovered the animal control feature with a monkey-like thing and became Obsessed with seeing if i could make a sapient symbiosis between the ai molders and the monkeys

    i'd gotten to the point where i had a self-sustaining population of both monkey things and ai molders, and the monkeys could use really simple tools on their own and the molders were smart enough to have simple conversations, and my molder was a different species than at the start (colonies of slime mold, i'd been running through AI molders every so often since swapping pieces of colonies reset the age timer) and so were the monkeys

    and then
    a loud car woke me up

    today i dreamed...well a bunch of stuff, but there was one dream snippet that was really funny

    it was a small dog (cassie from animorphs in morph) carrying a very confused no-hologram chee on her back. she was a lot smaller than the chee.
    it was captioned "Cassie understands item management!"

    also i had a sleep paralysis thing when i woke up. the ceiling was covered in a moving carpet of very shiny beautiful beetles. i was thinking, "this is very pretty, brain, but i would like to move". then the beetles faded out and swarms of colour-changing butterflies showed up. the light above the bed went white and also wider, so it looked like the annoying light in the bathroom that is right over the bath (which has its own switch, luckily) and all the butterflies were flying to it. again very beautiful. i was still thinking "yes, yes, very pretty, please let me move."

    i was supposed to be getting ready for work but i fell back asleep and dreamt about John Darnielle having written a book set in the harry potter universe?

    And he or someone else was getting ready to get writing some more, but first had to have breakfast or something. I or the character i was playing, gently reminded him that while his book was selling well, jk rowlings universe was likely a big part of that

    jk rowling was at the kitchen table already so i was like "well its thanks to her, haha"

    Geez dreamself that was a little rude

    versi2 ???????

    dreamed my dad was killed by lord frieza

    The dream was set in an otherwise perfectly normal mirror of real life, except frieza existed in it for some reason and exploded my father. I don't even usually have dreams that are set in the real world, or feature people I actually know! I was all crying and upset in the dream, and then I woke up and was just like, wait, what?

    i was at some sort of festival or amusement park with my dad and brother, and i also was given an assignment to write about steam...something. there were these like outlets for steam on some streets, except they were disconnected from whatever pipe system.

    they were going to be dedicated as historic for some reason, so i looked at one and it instantly had the dates it was in use engraved on it.

    also i had to take pictures of them but my hands were really shaky? dad helped take pics, then we got lunch, got our stuff to go, went to another restaurant to wait for my brother to finish shopping and ordered *more* lunch. Also there was a public bathroom that i was really psyched about because it contained a drinking fountain. I then woke up to find i was having a low blood sugar, which might have been why i was so focused on eating like 3 hot dogs and chugging water in the dream

    all I remember of my dream is the existence of Mormons Living in a Shed Next Door to Jesus: the Movie

    And really that's all I need to know.

    This is probably not the most appropriate rating to give, but I mean, it's #relatable

    palindromordnilap I'm a raging bird

    One of the most stereotypically symbolic dreams I've had in a while, but let's probably not:
    On a cliff, I see a hawk fighting a crow, which loses. The crow being mostly dead, the hawk starts eating it. I try to throw a stone at it, but accidentally hit the crow... Which gets jolted back into consciousness, wounds the hawk's wings, and then they both fall off the cliff and die.

    Sethrial MacCoill Attempts were made

    had a wet dream so good i woke up craving dick, which was awkward, because im about as ace as it gets.
    I want to add that it was a dream about tentacle rape except the rape never happened because I got so excited when I found out there were going to be tentacles involved that I started asking so many questions that the alien who was ripping my clothes off got uncomfortable and left.
