You're at a popular restaurant with your brothers. One orders the special sampler platter and your kid brother orders the Dino bites The order comes and it's a plate of tiny dinosaurs. He pours a little bit of red stuff onto the head of one and takes a bite. This is all perfectly normal. As is your other brother offering him to try one of the samples labeled pretty (nice) person. It's a red vile of blood. You take a different vile and contemplate grabbing a little brontosaurus.
You lay your head on your dads lap and he tells you he has a gift for you. It’s a plant. A small green mix between an aloe Vera and bonsai. It’s in a tiny white plastic pot and you decide it needs to be replanted.
You get a square kitchen trash can to temporarily plant the plant while you get a new pot. You decide to just move it from the small pot to the trash can then decided that was too big.
Your friend came in and distracted you as she tends to do as You put ricks at the bottom and before You know it. it was in the trash can again. You tried again. She started talking about a movie she was going to see then You commented how Her son was getting so big (saw his pic on facebook where his grandma didn’t even come to his shoulder he’s so tall!). And once again the plant was in the can. You give up and soon it was in a barrel with some other desert plants.
Your nephews came with more tiny plants some looked like coral and tried to help. You made a small hole for one and The younger one put a purple one in then pushed it deeper. You had to correct him but he was having fun. Then he put it on top of the tiny beach like pebbles and tried to do the same. You tickle attack him instead of correcting him.
You and your friends are at a gaming convention so there’s lots of strange people. Your friend is bored because they’re not into games. You check out an intriguing heavy metal role play table top and try to convince them it’s cool but it’s sold out before you can grab it. You had no luck at the convention at all. You only came away with a few game pieces.
On your way out one of the many annoying people pushed a child into a fountain. He was a tall man with curly brown hair and a long face. He was an infamous villain. You call his name ( in the dream I called him Megaton though he looked nothing like him) and people begin to recognize him and move away. He moves out to the parking lot but you don’t pursue right away.
You tell your friends to go home. And you get in your car and follow. (At this point it turns into a strange freeway slow motion “drive” where at one point you are the car moving on your hands and knees over a long stretch of highway.) Suddenly there is a crash in front of you and you can’t avoid swerving straight into a fence and a bunch of junk. Parts of the fence seem to be alive. They’re a bright silver and move and if you get too close they grab you.
You almost get stuck in one but pull yourself free. You almost get back to your car when you see your friends have followed and the bad guys minions (because of the megaton reference I only saw them as cars and associated them with robots) has caught them with the fence. You have no choice but to surrender.
While you wait for the master mind you sit with the minions and try to find out what you want. In the meantime they make friends with your friends who are a husband and wife. One guy in particular gets the wife to try a large juicy piece of steak no matter how much you try to convince her it’s wrong.
The bad guy shows up and explains all he wants from you are the caps from the game pieces you have. You thought they were nothing but if he wants them they must be special. You refuse and he threatens your friends.
Knowing you have no choice you tell him they’re still in your car. Even so you talk back to him in a snippy “yes,sir” attitude and he questions you so you become more congenial. He allows you to go get them and you see another car was caught in his trap. A lady is hurt and you go help her. She seems ok as you untangle her from the fence and you whisper to her your situation. You ask her to get some help.
Before they become suspicious you grab the pieces from the car. You give them to him and wait some more. They have some magical or technological properties that will allow him to perform some great robbery. Before he can the police arrive and you are saved.
You’re going to a magic school (yeah like that castle place but more like a school in America) where you meet up with your slightly air-headed blond friend (yes she wears strange glasses and could be mistaken for a certain moonchild). She sees conspiracies everywhere. Your school uniform looks like any other boarding school uniform, but the place swarms with magic. You feel lifted off your feet as you float through the halls. Colors are brilliant and varied. Something is happening at the school and the teachers are looking for her. You back her up in whatever it is.
She works at a store that has all sorts of neat old items, not necessarily magical but interesting items not found anywhere else. You are hanging out with her there. How the school was wide and colorful, this place is congested and dark. Most of the items are wooden and nothing is organized. Things move there, but not necessarily by magic, more mechanically. There’s an old man, the owner, who sits out front and watches the passerbys. He’s not looking for customers but is a lookout. He’s kinda creepy and you wonder just how trustworthy he is. Meanwhile, inside you go through the items finding the “bad” ones.
Your mom comes in and hands you a bag of candy and asks you to close it. You don’t understand why she couldn’t, it’s just jellybeans and gummy worms. No, wait, that one looked like a baby snake not candy. Why was it moving? You try to close the bag and it’s like the snakes have multiplied. No longer fruit colored the tan, black, and white snakes are trying to escape and could bite you. A few of them have two heads.
Unfortunately, that’s all I remember. I waited too long to write this one down so most of the details are gone. I wish I could translate the surrealistic almost magical feeling in the dream.
You’re a vampire, you need to get into a complex to help your friends. You and one of your friends are trying to distract the guard at the guardhouse and manage to get by the guardhouse but another guard stops your friend. To protect your friend, you grab the guard and drink from him. An older, experienced member of your team stops you but is then attacked by a guard himself. He quickly took the guard out and the three of you snuck into the building.
You manage to make it up to the highest point where the elevator stops. But there’s still several floors to go. As you step out of the elevator you wonder where the guards are. One of your friends says that no one in their right mind would want to climb up several flights of exposed, rickety metal stairs to break into the place. You all did it, and surprisingly without incident. You make it to the top all rusted metal room. There’s not much in the room. It wasn’t the mafia office you were expecting to find.
You thought it would be fancy with gangsters and plush furniture. There was a metal table with a few chairs. On the table, dominoes were laid out. Someone had been here recently. Perhaps they were expecting you after all. Your two partners sat to wait them out and play. The older on your right and younger on the left. They were wily and strategic as you watch them play but of course the older and more experienced wins.
The younger and handsome one knows something he doesn’t though. The mob boss is coming. Their game was a rouse to bring him and he congratulated them on a game well played. Wity dialogue is exchanged before he orders you all on your feet. But you know something he doesn’t, you’re vampires.
You’re a scruffy dog running around the streets. You run over hills and around a park where people are having lunch. You can’t get to them since there is a gate. There is some lights in the bushes and as you nose around you uncover a printer.
You think maybe if you can get it to work the people would notice you. The people in the park have other printers so even the noise and lights from it doesn’t attract them.
You move on. Nearby is a large food plant. You roam around the house outside the plant and come across a couple puppies. Ones a curly haired white poodle like dog. The other is another scruffy mutt.
You know your way around the plant and how not to get caught. You take them through having to help the curly one over crates. You show them how to turn on equipment to get fish. You show them where to hide when the people come around.
Eventually though the people notice you and you manage to befriend some of them.
So what happens next?
Some dreams seem so normal and everyday and yet are so realistic you’d think you were living them. Then how you remember it is almost like anything else that happened to you. this one may be hard to explain as it has a lot of my own real life elements that are familiar to me but probably not you. so I’ll just babble. it’s in four parts.
My neighbor’s neighbor on the other side woke him at 7am only it was still dark. His neighbor was mowing my neighbors lawn again. My neighbor doesn’t like how the guy does it especially in one corner against their joining wood fence. My neighbor got out of bed all disgruntled both these guys are long in the tooth. He took his lawn chair from under his bed grumbled then set it up in that corner. His neighbor started arguing he couldn’t mow and my neighbor showed him the long cut blades that he cut it too short. I interjected that I like long grass. It’s soft under foot. They both just stared at me like I’m weird.
I offered to go to the store to get out of there. Next thing I know I’m in the checkout line. The lady in front of me forgot her bags so the checker offered to pay for new ones. It was only$0.30 so feeling bad for the checker I gave her the dimes. The guy behind me started to get pushy even shoving his groceries forward. I didn’t even remember what I bought so I was sad to learn one of my favorite chocolates that was there was his and not mine. I made a slight profit when leaving by finding an empty bag by the door. I thought that lady could use it but she was gone. And so was my car. It was still dark and only a few cars were in the lot. Mine was not. I kept pressing my alarm button anyway. I’ve mentioned before I don’t get scared or angry or really any emotion in dreams. The same was now. I guess the closest emotion was puzzled. Why had I driven here in the first place. I mean my house is literally on the other side of the wall (and why was this store here it hadn’t been there for 30years but looked just like I remembered-from the 70s). So there was nothing for it but to walk home. I was a little concerned as I didn’t think our neighborhood was that dangerous until my car was stolen. I mean my neighbors bickering was about the worst of it. But now it all seemed dismal and creepy. There were people hanging against my back wall that looked suspicious. I could only think they were watching me. Same with my car. Like someone was messing with me in particular.
I made it to my front lawn and found I missed half of the new doctor who episode my neighbor was watching it projected on the side of my house. Only he acted like it was really happening. So it was.
This flamboyant guy ( not as in gay but as in flaming. He dressed elaborately in orange with spikes red hair) was giving a Shakespearean style villain monologue about how he kidnapped the doctor and planned to take over the world. (Keep in mind I haven’t watched but a couple episodes of the doctor in decades) turns out I was one of his companions and this bad guy wanted all of us.
Turned out it’s all connected. I was being stalled. I went into my house and found some things out of place. Next thing I know I’m watching the show on my tv then there on a catwalk. I’m watching flamey and the doctor debate then the doc says he’s going. I don’t know if he’s leaving his tied up companions behind or just going to bed. Either way he seems to have free roam of the place. His other companions watch in disbelief as he walks down a ramp out of the room. Meanwhile I hatch a plan to get them out.
And then my neighbor calls me. Tells me some happy people found my car. They were in the Walmart parking lot not far from my home. They thought it looked like mine (how they could tell it from every other grey Prius don’t ask me) and called around to confirm. They were so excited to have found a famous persons car. (Yeah I didn’t know I was famous either)
And so that’s it. No idea if I saved them or not but hey my car is in one piece.
