Imagine the waiver you'd have to sign.
I've been having weird dreams lately, mostly with Y involved in them. Night before, I was on a ship that was also my grandparents' house, in a wheelchair (??), scooting around and doing Vacation Stuff with my family, until the dream suddenly switched gears and I was on a snowmobile-wheelchair-thing racing to get home before a neighbouring guild got there because Y had sold the guildhouse (which was...also my grandparents' house) without warning anyone, and now we had to evacuate everyone and gather up our stuff so that no one died and nothing got stolen. This culminated in having to escort my family upstairs to a room just past-and-through my grandparents' bedroom, which was full of teleporter pads from Minecraft. Some of which didn't necessarily lead to the same dimension as the one we were in? And having to hold off the other guild while the last of the family got out, after Gem-fusing with a bunch of ladies (one of whom, I think, was Vriska??) to fight better.
I have no idea what the shit my brain is up to right now, honestly.
I had a dream where I had an interview out of town, not sure what the results were. Then I got a ride home from someone else and didn’t realize until later that I forgot my car.
My dreams are really lame.
So I had a very detailed good omens dream last night.
Basically, Crowley and Aziraphale were living in that cottage and they had a daughter, for some reason? (Ive read too many angel/demon hybred fics, i guess. Except ive only actually read one, but i guess my subconscious really liked it.) And they were out somewhere and she had a babysitter who was just some random person. Something startled her (no clue what) and she was scared enough that she abruptly went full angel and was the size of the house, flaming wheels and wings and eyes and so on, and super painful to look at or listen to. So the babysitter is just collapsed on the ground and the kid is making distressed noises in mathematics (my persistent notion of angels speaking in mathematics comes from this amazing captain cold fic.). So everyone is very upset and the babysitter is trying really hard to calm her down and manages to gather themself enough to grab their phone and call her parents, at which point they come back immediately and the dream ends.
Last night's dream involved...something about what I think was the Big Bad Wolf rescuing kids who had the power to control snow and ice? From the perspective of it being some kind of video game, so there were periodic "you fuck't up and died! Try again!" bits where the perspective would suddenly reset and we'd have to do something different. It was in first-person perspective, but I wasn't really the one in the driver's seat? I was just watching, and I think I got tossed in half-way through. Which is why I'm not sure about whether that was actually Wolf and wtf was really going on.
Beyond the bit where there was a prophecy about not burying a kid so deep they drowned, and then we came across a mother who was...trying to bury her snow-kid right before a rainstorm? And Wolf was really pissed about it, and I think rescued the kid and was not kind to the mom, but that's around where I woke up so I'm not sure.
when i woke up i told barb "i have to get my roller derby out of the mall!" because until i woke up the rest of the way i didn't quite grasp that the other players (and indeed the mall) were also figments of my imagination.
the ball was a domo-kun plushie. at one point i took it and skated off the course because i didn't want to win, i just wanted the plushie.
I mean, I feel like that’s what I would probably do if actually in that situation IRL. Dream!Jesse has the right idea.
Also, on the subject of being half-awake and thinking your dream was real, and speaking as if you’re still dreaming:
I once had a dream that I barely remembered any of even in my I-just-kinda-woke-up-but-not-really state, beyond the fact that I was hanging out with Garnet from SU outside a nearby supermarket (like, straight-up loitering outside the entrance to a Safeway?? I’m sure it made perfect sense in the dream but I don’t think we were like, waiting for someone or anything, we were just...hanging out). Now, I mention Garnet being there because it could possibly provide SOME context for what I shouted when my mom was all “acey it’s getting late wake up”:
“IT’S OKAY, I HAVE THREE EYES”
This made perfect sense to me when I was saying it. I actually remember that part, that I shouted that at my mom and thought that was a completely reasonable and logical response to her telling me to get up. I thought I might’ve dreamed that part too, but then my mom amusedly brought it up that afternoon...:P
imagine a bunch of mad max looking mofos of every gender battling over this thing in the megamall, colliding with book displays and knocking over victoria's secret mannequins
i was having a blast tbh but i felt bad about the mess
This morning I dreamed I was walking, and then I dreamed I woke up but had to keep walking, so I jogged in my one piece pajamas down the hallway of the mall to the theater and arcade, looped back through the food court, and up a grassy hill next to the woods. At the top was the edge of the world that was de-rezzing toward me so I went back the other way down the corridor of the space ship.
I don't even have pajamas.
i dreamed i was shearing sheep. the fiber nerd’s equivalent to counting them, i guess.
I dreamed that I and some people were listening to a Britney Spears song from midway through her singing career about castles that, as I was explaining during the dream, was a not-so-subtle cry for help that she was trapped by her producer in specific and the music industry in general.
I don't remember the lyrics, but I do remember that somehow my unconscious mind actually managed to get them to rhyme, at least the particular bit of lyric that I was using as evidence.
For all I know there might actually be such a song; I have very little knowledge of her discography beyond the ones that got overplayed on the radio.
For the first time in months, if not years, I had a Dream and remembered it. I wrote it down and everything.

i had a Celeste scifish AU and Boat Trolls Space Navy crossover dream last night.
It opened with Madeline on Erskin's ship, for about five seconds, then decided it needed to set everything up, so it jumpcut to Madeline on a relatively small (like ~5 person) human ship. human ships in this worked by using basically magic to make a nontangible mirror in space and then going through it like a portal to the Mirror Realm/Mindscape Realm, and the distances between inhabitited worlds were really short there because there was nothing to define the space.
in order to be able to leave the mindscape outside of inhabited space, the ships had these antennae things that very lightly interacted with the gravity of realspace, so the distances between inhabited worlds were merely 'short' rather than 'basically nonexistent'.
unfortunantely this included being able to interact with black holes, which looked deeply weird in mindspace because lots of people were studying them + the gravity interactions. the ship maddy was on got close enough to one to start drifting, because of the tiny distances thing, and it was some bizarre eldritch hard-to-describe almost clockwork-looking\this-should-be-solid-why-is-it-acting-like-water mess with the black hole in the middle, with the darkness spreading from it like lightly corralled black fog.
black holes in mindspace were Extra Bad because they have a hypnotic effect, which Maddy managed to resist but nobody else did so they all decided to go EVA and got sucked in and died and Maddy was piloting the ship on her own and only managing to resist because "someone had to pilot". she barely managed to escape, and then had the ship limp towards whereever it was going, but it had a skew because the antennae were all warped, and she wound up finding Captain Erskin's ship after about three days, which showed up in mindscape as "deeply weird but recognizably a ship".
by this point madeline had managed to get badeline to manifest because she got lonely and needed company. so she stumbled out of the ship, kinda shocky and confused, and found...aliens. she was on an alien carrier ship. this did not make her any less shocky. erskin had to find a mindreader to communicate with madeline because none of the trolls understood english, madeline understood no alternian, and "how did these aliens even GET here" was an Important Question.
they were very surprised to discover madeline was very psionically resistant while still able to have powers.
also she had Opinions on troll shipbuilding culture. Erskin had a lot of similar Opinions. increasingly drunk Maddy and Erskin complaining about bad shipbuilding culture resulted. there was also a random jump cut to everything happening over 3 centuries in the future in, i don't know, some AU where maddy had previously known erskin and had relativity issues from spending too long in the slow time of near the black hole and they had known each other previously and also maddy had been on a solo ship??
then back to maddy and erskin on the sunslammer, revealing that maddy had lost about 2 years to black hole time dilation. there was a subplot about a cat and people being very concerned because maddy hadn't been answering her phone.
i liked the worldbuilding and the parts that were coherent. 300-centuries-in-the-future earth/alternia fusion made no sense.
Spoiler: spoiler cut bc our discord icons ended up huge for some reason when i copypasted it, and i'm too lazy to fix it

i had a dream that we discovered an unforseen problem with the dome -- the magma that was supposed to heat it had melted most of the plastic and was endangering the gas line.

oh no! we should not have used lava! but it was such a good idea!
i dreamed you were in a hacking competition in a bar, and your opponent had his mom buy everyone candy so they would cheer for him. he kept saying you were going to "lose like a bitch." you told him something very wise:
"you can only lose like a bitch if you play like a bitch. which means the best you can hope for is to win like a bitch."

he lost heinously and threw a shitfit, btw. then you and i went driving in our tank and talked about the gorillaz new album, and rescued a small cat boy from a tree. we decided not to keep him because we have enough cats and boys already, but we let him spin the turret.
seebsToday at 1:57 PM
i read that as "diving in our tank" until you got to turret

two fish in a tank: "how do you drive this thing?"
We’re just two lost souls driving in an armored vehicle,
Literal glass cannon
Like this but with a gun:
that fish wins at life
