    I had a really weird dream where I was....Daine, I think, from the Tortall series? And I was trying to fight or do diplomacy or Something with a bunch of demi-god boars who were being underhanded and tried to poison me? And I managed to prove that to their leader, and...then things transitioned into being a theme park, and I was riding in a roller coaster that, I think, was also the Black Widow. And I had to fix up the theme park, and ended up rescuing a muppet from the roller coaster, which was slightly haunted and malevolent (but only slightly, and it only applied if you were sitting in the front car and...not me? I think?

    ...I have no idea wtf was going on, now, but it was apparently fascinating enough that I needed to keep sleeping even when my alarm started going off.

    I really could've done without the bit where it segued into "okay, what combination of Molly and her kids would plausibly work as a pairing" and it was even more confusing than the rest? (Apparently the answer is Percy/Molly.) There at least wasn't any actual viewing of that, just...them eating brunch? And building stone patios or something.

    At the point of weird super realistic and unnecessarily elaborate dreams because 'discontinuation' of my med.

    The world/reality is kind of made up demesnes of powerful supernatural creatures. Pretty much as long as the region is 'owned' by something/one its reality is stable.

    There's a sort of gathering in this small town because the witch who controls it is dying (was poisoned?) and has no heir so her territory'll be up for grabs. The witch seems fine and will right up until she croaks. She has a painfully stereotypical pseudo-victorian house with an actual white picket fence and a planter that'll grow anything in it to maturity in one day, but it'll die by the end. Her favorite part of the morning is deciding what to grow.

    The assembled freaks and weirdos waiting for her to die were kind of background noise. Main cast: the witch, didn't show up much except bits with the dolls and her garden. A pair of cursed 'dolls', actually people stuck in the form of lifesized dolls. Boy, cursed because he did something unspecified but Real Bad and killing him would be a kindness. Also bound to the other doll as her guardian, except he can't move or speak to protect her. REAL PISSED ALL THE TIME. Girl, not actually cursed. Someone fucked her up bad, left her catatonic to the point even her soul is nonresponsive. She was dollified for protection/preservation, in case the witch found someone who could help her. The witch moves them around the house for stimulation, sits them out in the garden, holds tea parties with them. She's very fond of both even though the guy Done Fucked Up and also hates her and the girl. Witch tries real hard to protect them from reality getting fuckier even though the boy is hoping random rulebreaks means he'll be freed of the curse, since it won't end with the witch's death (I don't think she was the one who dolled him initially but inherited him, she just added the 'watch over the girl' part.)

    Two gods on the next 'layer', they own the bigger part of the region the witch's land is part of, but it's not specific enough for them to pin reality down. It's pretty much a succession crisis with a duchy, while they're the monarchs- it's in their land and their problem but they can't really go 'ok mine now problem solved' unless there's absolutely nobody else. Sort of a Norse feel to them? But pretty chill. There's some weird industrial construction (it has a crane) that's kind of a connection to their 'layer' and the witch's land, which leads me to the actual main character:

    Absolute badass girl, sort of spy feel to her but. Like. 1) more of a Ronin (movie) thing than Bond-esque. 2) Not all femme fatale, though she WAS hot. But practical, clever, dangerous, precise. She's sent by the two gods to oversee the succession crisis and make sure reality doesn't shit itself. Before the gods get the elevator working in the weird construction she was willing to climb the skyscraper-sized thing by a dangling wire? It was a big wire but still!

    She's also the only one who can directly communicate with the gods (aside from being the only one ballsy enough to be willing to climb to talk to them before the elevator's restored) but there's some language fuckery going on with the notes they leave, like they can't pick which of the languages they know that the notes show up in. But she speaks all the same languages as the gods + the ones spoken in the region so she's not only the one they sent to see things go smoothly but the only one who they can talk to.

    Also one of the gods is watching everything through a sniper scope. Apparently Just in Case she fails? Not going to wonder why they have to leave dead drops at the top of the construction because they can't effect anything else down there, but apparently bullets cross the barrier between realities juuuuust fine. (Maybe it's just THAT gun. I dunno. I woke up before exposition)

    I had a flying dream, which almost never happens. I was really exasperated about it though. It was cold, which was annoying. And I could have used a lot more maneuverability.

    It really was cold. I was attempting to survey a bunch of people who were hanging out in a fairly shallow swimming pool. It was sort of like a big hot tub but it obviously wasn’t heated. I remember wondering how they could stand it.

    In retrospect they were awfully still and pale and kinda bloated, like corpses, though they weren’t dead in the dream.

    Sometime during this incident I noticed I was having Raynaud’s phenomenon, which I don’t actually even have irl. Some of my fingers were bone white. I was like, for fuck’s sake. I’m annoyed that this is actually the least of my problems.

    I was just trying to escape a corrupt multidimensional conspiracy and get home to my own dimension. I didn’t need that shit.

    So I had a bizarre, albeit very brief, NSFW dream last night.
    For some fucking reason, I was jacking off in public--I think I was at the bus station. Someone looked right at me, and I panicked, but then he just sorta nodded at me and went on his way.

    That was it. That was the entire dream, at least as far as I remember.

    I blame this post.

    Okay, i'm home from work now so let's see how much i can remember.
    Dream part 1
    So, I was getting ready for work when I suddenly got sick, like really, really sick, and had to lay down in bed. I picked up my phone to call my boss and tell him that I wouldn't be able to make it, but fell asleep before i could do it. I woke up like, 6? hours later, I think, and picked up the phone and called, then went back to bed. A big chocolate lab followed me to my room, she had medium length fur and it was very soft, and i knew she was coming with because she knew that i was sick and didn't want to leave me alone. I started to lay down and go back to sleep, and she jumped up onto the bed and laid down next to me, and i fell asleep a few seconds later. (i don't remember her name, so i'll just call her Riley)

    Dream part 2
    I woke up in a freezing cold blizzard, in the middle of a culdesac that only had two driveways leading into it, and i couldn't see the road leading out of it. Where the two driveways met the culdesac there were two middle aged white women with "I want to see the manager" style haircuts, they were talking to each other. I approached them to ask if i could sit in one of their houses for a few minutes, to stay out the blizzard (I was shivering at this point.) one of them looked offended that i'd asked and just told me "No." in a really snotty, condescending voice. The other looking me up and down in a kind of appraising/unimpressed manner, and told me i'd have to work for it. At that point I realised that if i'd just gotten out of bed that Riley should be there, so i started looking around for her, when i couldn't find her i realized that something was hitting my leg, and then realized that I was dreaming, and woke up to Riley nosing me in the leg.

    Then I woke up for real, and realized my alarm was about to go off.

    Riley had very soft fur.

    I've been having really vivid, weird dreams lately. Last night was something involving a convention, where I was meeting up with, or ran into, a friend from online? Except I was projecting myself there because I was actually asleep, and people who were sleep-projecting got items they could use for...something. I didn't really get an explanation for what the items were intended for in the dream, either, but I do remember that I grabbed a plastic recorder off of someone to keep her from hitting my friend and I with it, and a possibly-mechanical pencil (from the person who was with the girl with the plastic recorder) and my item was my old blue glasses.

    I woke up really confused, and sort of feeling like something'd gone sideways somewhere.

    And screenshots of different types of....big person sized or larger vertical pipes, for placing in a forest-y game environment, with big ceramic buddha heads inside, including ones with water flowing into the pipe and onto the buddha head, pipes with open tops, tops with grates, ones with plants growing inside. Each had a different cute name that i assume was its ingame title.

    Those were in a tumblr post or something that said after the pics, something like "(game) was good actually" or "why didnt i like (game) earlier"

    I was in some sort of building (hotel?) where the walls were all made up of dried up, twisty vines. Some mad scientist was raving about his creation and hauled up this vaguely human-shaped thing with eyes all over it, including a huge one on its belly. I refused to be frightened, and instead talked excitedly about how this guy could see me waving at him no matter which way he was facing! He would never miss a friendly greeting, and that was awesome!

    Last night I had my first ever spider-related dream that wasn't a phobia nightmare!! I'm so happy about it, it was really cute!

    In the dream, there was a big colourful jumping-spider in my room. Already better than previous spider dreams, because they're the only kind my brain pings as 'cute' rather than 'uncanny'. Even though it was cute, dream me still wasn't sure about physically picking it up, so I asked @inchwyrm if she'd let it out for me. She let it up onto her hand and then shaded it with her other hand, and told me to watch because this kind of jumping-spider does something cool if you do that. And what it did was rapidly spin an entire scarf. (This was definitely inspired by watching my friend use her overlocker on our last craft day - the threads flew out in exactly the same way.) And within maybe a few seconds Wyrm handed me this massive autumnal scarf that this lil spider had woven. It was really cute and matched one of my favourite jumpers perfectly.

    After that, Wyrm told me she'd rather let the spider stay in our room, because she (it was a girl spider apparently!) wasn't really for the outdoors. And also she had a family of other tiny jumping-spiders that were living under my bed. I think I had to ask Lubby to 'talk to them' - because I guess Literally Talking To Arachnids was a power she had - to ask them if they could relocate to the top shelf of our bookcase where they'd not be in danger of getting squashed by us big humans, and they could pay rent in knitwear. It was a very pleasant arrangement and from then on I guess we just lived with some magical knitting spiders?

    It was a cute dream. I'm still happy about it. Also, I really want that scarf in real life because it was so nice!!

    I dreamed that, at least for part of the dream, I was watching a brother and sister reenacting Vines. Except, this being a dream, these weren't actual Vines (as far as I know). I'm pretty sure I've never seen a Vine involving a swordfight using butcher knives (and I specify swordfight because they were using the knives as if they were swords rather than knives). Come to think of it, I'm not sure that the sister was quite aware of how the Vine went either, judging by the look on her face.
    Beyond that, though, I wouldn't be surprised if they could have been actual Vines.
    Also I had to try to explain Vine to someone else while this was happening, which didn't really help my explanation.

    I dreamed a few weird things.
    First off, I was at a train station in Beverly, MA. Which was odd, because where I live isn't near Beverly but in the dream I went to school nearby. I got on the train to head into Boston, and it was an open-top train. So I sat on the top and headed into Boston. Nobody came to check my ticket, which was annoying because I had paid $200 for it for some reason. I played on the Switch on the way there.
    By the time I got to Boston, it was night. Which is weird because I had left in the morning, and the ride is only normally like an hour. I made my way to the hotel where my parents were staying for some reason and met up with my sister in the lobby. We went down forty levels to the basement pool (which, I guess, was really deep underground) but ended up on the roof anyway at a pool. There was some drama related to the current fight that's going on in my family, but then my alarm rang and I woke up.

    i dreamed that i was playing heroes of might and magic III and found a blatant homestuck reference, like it actually namedropped “homestuck.” this was alarming because heroes III came out in 1999.

    i also dreamed that i found a kitten. it had reddish fur and it was adorable

    Two dreams last night, or maybe two parts of the same dream.

    One dream: some sort of parallel-universe setup, where multiple copies of people were wandering through a particular building and realizing the hard way that there were multiple versions. Also there was some bad guy who was trying to get rid of the "wrong" versions of people. Something out of a Phillip K. Dick book.
    At one point, one of the people who had multiple versions told another person that if she wanted to move universes she should press the left and right buttons in the secret elevator, and pressing the down button might enable her to escape the system entirely.
    The interesting part of the dream is that the person being told this information reacts by lifting up the top of my head, reaching into the empty cavity and pressing the back of one of my eyeballs; apparently I am the secret elevator.
    Her pressing the down button teleports us to the roof and she gets captured and I return to where I was before. Two policemen show up. One of them is some sort of tentacled bear creature who doesn't really fit in his uniform. The other looks human. Both of them are getting bribed by the bad guy. They take out their truncheons and disable the secret elevator, i.e hit me a bunch, although since I'm apparently a robot I don't feel anything.
    In the process, some fluid or material or something gets on the human-looking guy, who goes back to the police station and through a door that leads to part of the police station where they keep the officers who have gotten corrupted by said fluid or material or whatever and are turning into monsters, and all the people there instantly recognize why he's back there. I don't remember what happens next.

    The part of the second dream that I remember is that I'm standing in the street and there's a big green light in the sky, big enough that it's visible even though it's apparently coming from behind the moon. It's approaching slowly.
    Eventually it gets close enough that we can see that it's apparently another Earth. The physical geography is all correct, but when it gets close enough labels for cities and towns and even some buildings appear, and apparently this copy Earth was labeled by a machine, because where San Diego should be is instead "Baston". And this isn't a one-off mistake of the labeler just putting random letters down, because there's a building marked as the "Natural Museum of Baston Modern Art". The next city over is New York.
    After realizing that something's wrong, we cut to a forum thread where the first post is apparently the testing log for the machine, describing which parameters yielded decent labels and which didn't, and then the rest of the thread is people trying to figure out how to make the machine better. I don't know whether I was actually reading the forum or if this part of the dream took place in third-person omniscient.

    had a dream last night where i was a magical girl and could fly in a limited capacity by jumping really high and floating down on the breeze. that was fun. then i was in a room and a clown came in and I was like "Do I fight you? Are you evil?" and she was like "I guess so! I'm a fucking clown!" and started pulling handkerchiefs in a chain out of her mouth. I grabbed the chain and pulled it so hard she turned inside out and the balloons that she was made of all floated away.
