    Really bad nightmare :(
    Something about having pet mice and gerbils which got out and produced hideous mutant hybrid offspring inside the couch, I was in trouble for letting them because it ruined Father's Day (which was apparently a huge deal in the dream), and we had to kill them all on the spot, even though some of them looked perfectly fine and could have been rehomed.

    A game that was somehow a combination of a gatcha and PvP tower defense. Like, I think the gatcha part was just getting different towers and attack units?

    this is probably the most goth dream i have ever had and possibly will ever have:
    two days ago i dreamed that i had to scoop out a brain from a skull with my fingers. the skull was a deep purple, so deep it was almost black, and the brain was a slightly lighter purple. there was no flesh on the skull, or even in it, aside from the brain which i had to dig out. once i was done someone wore the skull as a mask.

    Had a dream about an anime that was like My Hero Academia but instead of actually being heroes all the kids were there to master cosplay

    Dreamed that a bunch of people were putting on a play that apparently focused on the various ways you could die in a Soulsborne game, but it wasn't very realistic as they never once mentioned falling.

    Another Bloodborne-related dream: apparently I was a hunter and was co-oping with someone, except 1: we were trying some sort of challenge run so I had like no weapons or shoes and 2: the person I was co-oping with somehow had a charisma stat? That was at like 50 or something? So she just kept bluffing people into giving her stuff while I got chased around in the dark by fish monsters?
    Unfair, now that I think about it.

    I've had multiple nightmares about being bitten by snakes recently. Apparently that's supposed to symbolise concerns about health, which, well, yeah.

    Dream impolitely woke me up :T

    [Fictional death]
    I remember cool parts, a sad narrative of time like a soap bubble, fragile and prone to popping and going back... A person's new magic power emerged, you see, but in the form of a limited wish fulfillment manifestation. They were lonely and wanted a friend, so a friend was made for them, a bit of history roughly put together, emphasis more on the personality and how well they got along. Unfortunately they were lonely because jerkass ambitious parent kept trying to make sure all their relationships - romantic, friend, etc - were Beneficial with wealth or connections or such, SO the back story implied manifested!friend was heir to some huge rare vineyards, justifying the friendship enough... Except ambitious!parent decided to try a hostile takeover of these vineyards, which didn't really exist, and the strain on reality was enough to make the whole scenario pop, and they all wound up with fragmented memories a few weeks earlier. It was like the power posited a scenario to reality, and reality did a stress test of the scenario before either vetoing or approving for real, and their memories were from a quick simulation... Still, the end involved the new mage using the power to get out of the family and to a new life, as their brief friend had been suggesting. Part of the coolness was in the impact having a friend can make, even in brief times, and part in the visuals I can't do justice to, some nonsense of people in the scenario setting the breakdown as red-black shapes in the sky spreading and dissolving reality, a desperate last ditch attempt to stop it and heal their world since they didn't know most of it would revert...

    [Pandemic and family stress]
    Other dream was neither cool nor cool-looking, and all that sticks out to me was the ending.
    Something of me and family in old family house again, layout and decor somewhat changed but very recognizable to me. My dad talking somewhat disappointed about other relatives and their reluctance with various pandemic measures. Me complaining sharply, insulting the relatives at his every comment, because I didn't like what they were doing but mostly I wanted him to stop talking about it, and I knew if I asked he'd refuse, but if I made it unenjoyable for him he might decide to talk of something else. But he felt a weird honorbound need to defend them as good people despite it, I felt angrier with each halfassed defense and his persistence on the topic, and I got mean in ways that reminded us both of mom's fights with him. He finally quit the conversation at all with very pointedly sad/disappointed complaint and shutting himself in his room, at which point stepmom gave gentle feedback on my tone, and I just woke up with sheer frustration at it all.

    Do you ever have one of those dreams that really feel like you've stepped into someone else's skin for a while?

    Last night I started off as this Indian kid gutting, cooking, and processing fish for my dad's fish farm. We had several big concrete pools filled with carp and something else that was like tilapia to eat but looked more like arowana, and different pools for the different species at different stages of life, including gravid females so we could harvest roe.

    My main job was gutting, skinning, and quality-checking fish and then the different grades would be for cooking into curries then frozen, frozen whole, or smoked and salted. We had a small shop people bought from in person, but most of it was bulk orders for restaurants and wholesalers.

    I fed the fish guts and scraps to a couple of local dogs I'd become friends with, and I was doing that as well as wading into the pools each day to check the health and status of each fish because my ama would have been doing the quality control and cooking under normal circumstances but she had fallen ill, and my baba was busy looking after her.

    Time passed, and I grew up, and my baba passed but ama didn't, but she was chronically weak and in pain. I expanded the fish farm with a cafe and gardens area, so people could stay and eat good food in the shade and my mother always had a nice place to sit.

    I woke up when I was in the middle of a legal battle with a munitions factory upriver, because they were dumping toxins into the water and it was costing me to filter it before I could put it in the concrete pools.

    I had one of those dreams where I was transported to an alternate universe and going around my business there, and then some other guy made a Homestuck reference and I kind of unthinkingly replied with another reference. The guy looked absolutely terrified, and I hastened to explain that I was also from the alternate universe where Homestuck exists, and it had no in fact infected every universe.

    It's not uncommon for me to be someone else in dreams. It's not even rare for me to swap between being several people in a single dream.

    Miss Piggy (the Muppet) had a best friend named Allison Gator who went by Alli and she was distinctly a nile crocodile Muppet. I forced myself to remember only this specific thing because somehow I thought it was genius and I was gonna make millions
