It's been long enough, so I'm double posting.

First off, I had this one the night after I posted my last post. I was in a Doctor Who crossover with Thomas the Tank Engine. The Doctor goes to the Island of Sodor to fight the Diesel Engines or whoever the villains in the show are now. I think it's their own stupidity. I haven't watched the show in ages. Alec Baldwin was still narrating when I last watched it.

My second one, which came the night after the last one, was a bit different. This time I wasn't myself, but rather an already established character. I was one of the Tachikomas in the Ghost in the Shell anime series. I remember Major Kusanagi and a few of the secondary characters (whose names escape me) were breaking into some kind of building, which I assume was underground because we kept going down stairs (Well, they did. I walked on the walls. Losers.). I don't remember much other than that except that Batou wasn't there for some reason and he was on his way.

Remember that one dream where I went on a cross country tour of !#%$ and moaning at you in person and the more ridiculous sequel to that dream?
This time, I didn't have my brother's car, I mentioned the fact that I knew I was a terrible individual and that it was the last time you would ever hear from me. And then I !#%$ off to some dark corner that none of you would ever find, never to disturb you with my unsavoriness ever again.

So I had two dreams this past week that I distinctly remember.

The first one involved me going to some kind of reunion with everyone from my high school. A six month reunion. In the middle of the day. In an carnival. So anyway, pretty much all of my friends from high school are there. I meet some and then I went to the bathroom. I don't know why. I didn't need to go. The restrooms have a ridiculous number of urinals. One of them was also a sink. When I leave I come across Key Burrito (once again from thePFFTeam series I used to do). We talk for a bit and we meet this girl who I don't personally know, but I'm pretty sure she was an antagonist from a video game I played this one time. Who really cares? She invites us into the maze she set up and because we're stupid idiots, we go inside. That's all I remember from the first dream.

The second one was even more boring than the first. It basically involved this thing where you had to play YuGiOh to go up this tower and then on the third or fourth floor it switched to the Pokemon TCG, but everyone got stuck there because no one knows how to play the Pokemon card game. I don't know.

On the last episode of Falcon6 Dream Puppet Theater:

Locked in a golden tower (well, a yellow tower. Think Prospit) in a purple void there are four people that look like characters from a medieval fantasy. They still have their weapons (and just realized they had them), including a large war hammer (Like Ramona's from Scott Pilgrim but with a design that looks more like Thor) to break out with. They are discussing which wall to break. The tower is occupied by things that look like ghosts of people who are either living or dead, but are not actually ghosts at all. They are scheming or in some sort of battle against someone but it is unknown who or what. They do not accept the fact that they are not ghosts. Outside the cell is a ghost who is sweeping, I believe he was called a 'reagent' but looking up the definition he might not have been.

And then a few nights ago, I had a dream where I was growing out of my own back. It started with me looking in a mirror. I was thinner, almost insanely so, with a pair of extra arms that dangled lifelessly. I got in the shower to find that I was looking at the back of my head, it appeared I was splitting from myself. The other head appeared to be unresponsive, so I tried angling it so I could look in my eyes, for the novelty of saying that I did. Then the dream ended.

Guess what guys! I'm in a video game! In my dream. Sort of. The first thing I remember was that I was with a group of people is a desert. We were walking around this kind of castle that was built into an old temple kind of thing. The inside was really nice, but you couldn't tell that based on how ancient it looked on the outside. We were being chased by a giant Scollipede. We were running around looking for an entrance while dodging different kinds of monsters. Eventually we found a way in and we began fighting the Scollipede with our BARE HANDS! Aaaand we got our asses handed to us. At this point we were waiting around in a room deciding whether we would head back and grind or retry the fight. After a few minutes, we decided to head back to grind. I pulled up a menu and then we disappeared.

Actually, we respawned in our base, which was apparently a mansion. I walked over to the shop, which was actually set up in a dinning room. It was operated by two maids, one of which was the shop keeper, while the other was a fortune teller. I walked over to the fortune teller and talked with her for a bit and the made some kind of reference to the mirror next to her and at that moment, the mirror turned into a screen with some kind of bearded man having a David-Hasseloff-on-the-floor moment. I'm guessing that was the guy who was ordering us around. I kind of came in at the end of the story I guess. I head back to the group when who should walk up but the Doctor as played by Matt Smith. Again. Jesus, man. Can I dream about someone else for once? Does it always have to be you? Anyway, he's pissed off and he says he's found where the guy giving us orders is. I don't think he was in our adventuring party earlier, but who cares? As it turns out, we're trapped, but the way out is through the mirror which I first saw Mr. Beard in. Our party and the Doctor jump in and we teleport to the parking lot of a restaurant. We run around a bit, passing the same restaurant twice and at some point I lose my shirt, we start getting chased by police, and we come to a beach and then show up in some sort of giant crater.

At this point, my viewpoint changes to some kind of top-down view and everyone has cute little overworld sprites. I lead the party in wandering around the crater until we come upon a house and inside is a Team Rocket Grunt. He talks to me for a bit and then I wake up because my cat had somehow gotten into my room and was meowing very loudly.

So my dream last night involved Assassin's Creed. A series which I've never played and have expressed little interest in outside of the third game, and that's based on setting alone. So anyway, here's the gist of it:

My dream starts with me and some other people in front of this stone door. We're in a dark cave but I can tell that the door isn't very tall. It's a little bit taller than I am, but I'm taller in this dream than I am in real life. The door suddenly opens and brings light into the room. The first thing I notice is that I'm dressed in an assassin uniform. I think it resembled the one that Connor wears in his game. When everything comes into focus, I can see that on the other side of the door is a courtyard surrounding what I think is a small fort. It appears to be on a tropical island and is near the ocean. The appears to be about twenty colonial era British soldiers throughout the courtyard. Most of them are marching in step around it. There's also a single tree just slightly off center. Not a palm tree, but a rather skinny tree you see around towns to make people think that they're helping the environment by leaving planting them along roads.

The angle I'm viewing it front is strange. I appear to be looking down on it from above and then it hits me that the door isn't connected to anything on the other side. It's just hanging in midair. I then notice the three people next to me. The two on my left appear to be scientists. One is in a blue shirt with white lab coat on top and is wearing glasses. The man behind him is wearing more casual attire. I remember he was wearing a red shirt and an orange jacket. The girl on my right is wearing an outfit similar to mine. She has a focused look on her face and never looks away from the door.

The man in the lab coat mentions something about time travel and that there are more of these doors in this cave. He then tells me to jump in and in I go.

It is only then that I realize just how high up the door was and instantly regret jumping in except that I land on the roof unharmed because I'm a !#%$ ninja. Except apparently I'm not because as soon as I land, I'm spotted by some of the soldiers. Thankfully they shoot at me first. I say thankfully because they're using those old muskets that can't aim worth !#%$ and take forever to reload. When all of them have fired, I jump down and begin running around and then I realize that I have no idea what I'm doing. Thankfully as soon as I run under the tree, the girl from before lands in said tree and has a bow loaded with an arrow out within a second of having landed and is taking out soldiers one after the other.


THEN SOMEONE USED A !#%$ BLENDER IN THE KITCHEN AT SIX IN THE GODDAMN MORNING.

Roger spray painted his name all over my house in my dream last night. Then he replaced my cat with an identical one that ripped up all of our sofa cushions.

Yeah. I caught you while you were spraying something on the wall. Some other guy was with you who looked like you, but a little shorter, so I guess you had a brother in this dream. Even though I have no idea what you actually look like.

I was getting real close to this one girl who was a spaghetti dropper like me. I don't even remember what she looked like, though. Somehow we managed to !#%$, but I woke up right before I came...
And there was spaghetti all over the bed.

I dreamt our avatars were all in an Awesomenauts-esque styled game. Don't remember it fully, but if you've played the game, I think you can fill in the blanks yourself, me thinks.

Carbon copy thread time?

Oh god, that sounds amazing.

And a carbon copy would certainly be something, considering all the characters are !#%$ bonkers.

We can be interesting, but it'd be really difficult to fit those niches.

So my dream last night had me teamed up with the Sonic Archies comic's Sally Acorn and jer brother along with three members of the Chaotix Detective Agency, but I only remember Charmy and Vector. The first thing I remember is that we were going to climb a pyramid that was sticking out of the side of a mountain. Immediately after we walked up to it, an avalanche started. Sally then checked the strategy guide for the mountain and said that we should split up and dodge rocks on our way up.

We split up into two groups to decrease the chance of all of us dying, I guess. We arrived at the same time and I opened the automatic doors. (Did you know egyptian pyramids came with automatic doors?) Of course we walked in, because who wouldn't refuse such a warm welcome? The inside is a pretty normal house. It had a kitchen and dining room and everything. We walk into the kitchen and out comes this white guy pretending to be a pharaoh. But apparently he can do magic because the first thing he does is break a wine glass and all of the shards go into my right eye. The he challenges everyone else to a game of chess and I forget what happens from there.

Maybe instead we could figure out how our avatars would play as awesomenauts character or something?

Image Should probably stop having so much junk before sleep. My dreams are getting odder.

For last night's, for example, I was living my own average life when all heck decided to break loose. Monsters and whatnot everywhere (though they looked kinda cartoonish and not all that frightening). All I had to arm myself was this large, talking, novelty toothbrush as a weapon. It seemed to be doing quite a number against these creatures (I guess they're supposed to be germs) but the toothbrush tells me that it isn't at full capacity yet and I have to travel across distant worlds and fix its bristles up so we can defeat the master (probably something corny like Gingivitis or something).

What it evolved into was a standard action-adventure fare not unlike the Legend of Zelda (with the plot twist being that I was helping the villain all along and that this toothbrush was the weapon that sealed Gingivitis in the first place, and being incomplete was what kept him sealed).

...I outta keep a note of this. This could make for a decent parody game.

So last night/this morning, I had a dream that, wasn't really a nightmare but it still managed to make me lose sleep somehow.

I was with three of my friends, two of which I haven't seen in about 6 years, camping by a river near a giant metal bridge. We were simply talking about stuff that happened that didn't really actually happen, while the sun just kept rising and setting in a matter of seconds. Eventually it stopped and everything went dark, except for the river which was glowing a dark green colour. Obviously this seemed like the perfect time to go for a swim. We just kinda splashed around the surface for awhile until I decided to dive down. Somehow despite my, pretty lousy swimming skills I reached the bottom. It was there that I saw, something. I'm not entirely sure how you'd describe it. It was like a giant, skinny manta ray, except it was bright red and had like, a human face on it's back and on it's underbelly. Naturally I freaked out and swam back up to the surface, but when I got there my friends had vanished. Suddenly the ray monster breached out of the river and just, floated there above the water, starring at me with it's belly face. Next thing I knew the bridge just, suddenly explode and the pitch black sky turned orange. Then the ray screamed at me.

And THEN, I woke up. Except I didn't really, because I woke up to find everything my house had a hand jutting out of it. But I treated it as completely normal and just, went to take a shower. When I did the ray monster came out of the shower head, only this time it had a handprint were it's back face was, and it wrapped it's papery wings around me.

Next thing I knew I was, in an underwater city, working as a secretary for some big name sales manager. Said manager turned out to be, the ray monster only this time he was....a manta ray merman. He talked to me about a big mistake he made in his past, and how he was planning on correcting it. Next thing I know we're plotting to blow up Neptune.

Then my alarm went off and I had half an hour to get ready for work and aaaaaaaaaaaaah.

So I had a weird sort-of Harry Potter dream last night (not really). It started with me in my high school cafeteria. I kept trying to get something from Fred and George Weasley, but they kept switching it with something random every time I tried to take it. One time it was a pair of magnifying glasses, the next time it was a glass trophy. You get the idea. After about two minutes, they let me have it and I went back to sit next to Harry and Ron. Harry begins mentioning that he's been feeling like something has been odd, but he can't put his finger on it. I asked him more about it in a way that made it obvious that I knew more than I was letting on (I didn't know what I knew at this point in the dream).

Then an announcement is made on the PA system about strange letters that people have been receiving that claim to be from Death. He asks the recipients to find a way to travel back in time and stop someone from being born in exchange for a certain something that was also different for each person. That someone is different in each letter. The announcement says that anyone who receives one should immediately bring it to an authority figure to have it examined. Immediately after the announcement was finished, letters began appearing in front of several students including one nearby. I grab it from him and read it. I then run through the halls to a specific class and ask if anyone had received a letter. One girl said she did, and then I asked her what was in it.

And my dream ended there. A shame, really. I would've liked to know where it would have gone.

I had a dream I was sitting on a couch in rainbow place with close friends I didn't know and we we're passing around a magic ring that made people love the wearer if you told them to. A guy and a girl agree to try it out, one wears the ring and uses it on the other. It works. The ring is passed to me and wearing it makes everything I see ripple like water. I think about the pop song 'Everybody Loves Me' and realize that actually saying that would be a bad idea. I take it off and pass it to the next person and then the dream ends.

A few nights ago I had a couple of dreams. The first dream had me in some sort of school facility where the walls were made of red bricks and the lighting was pretty poor. It was also nighttime. I and a bunch of other students--I guess--were standing out in the back in uniforms. There were tents everywhere, filled with "prisoners", my mind told me. And I was one of the guards. I remember sitting on a chair near one of the tents, and this one girl prisoner under my watch took a romantic interest in me.

Then I was inside the building in the bathroom. A female teacher--I guess--was in there too, although I'm pretty sure it was the boys' bathroom. She said she was on the lookout for some runaway kids who were hiding around. I approached one of the sinks and in the mirror I saw some little boys peeking around corners of columns and then making a dash for the exit. The teacher just stood there, watching them. I assumed she was going to do something about them, but she didn't; at least, not that I saw. I just went on to use one of the urinals and the next time I looked over in that direction, she was gone.

Now, there were a couple of kids that each had a reputation for doing one thing and one thing only. One kid's shtick was grabbing people's arms and holding them behind their backs. The other kid I kind of forget what he did. Maybe it was pick-pocketing. Anyway, I was vaguely aware of the other kid pick-pocketing or whatever outside, but while I was going to the bathroom, the hand-grabber sneaked up behind me and grabbed my arms. Even though my arms were more or less immobilized, I managed to grab a used Kleenex from my pocket and fling it at the guy's face, which distracted him enough for me to get away.

The next I remember seeing was a third-person perspective of the bathroom as the arm-grabbing kid and the pick-pocketing kid tried to use their special talent against one another, resulting in a tangle with the one of pickpocket's arms being grabbed but the other one was flailing around wildly, I guess trying to reach the arm-grabber's pockets but being unable to get a good angle. Eventually they broke apart and the pickpocket, who always spoke in rap for some reason, said to the other guy something like:

"Woah, that's some skillz there, yo
We ought to go pro
And put on a show
Maybe we should asso-
ciate!"

And the arm-grabber was like, "Okay." And so they became like a supervillian team in a really low-budget superhero movie.

The rest of the dream I remember in pieces: I know that at some point, one of the villains--I think it was the arm-grabber--had a change of heart and ended up sitting in the company of us "good guys" but was still kind of nervous and mostly just watched us all. I also know that the girl with the romantic interest in me lay her head on my lap at one point, and also that she was sort of thin with black hair and a larger-than average nose. However, she eventually changed into a much wider girl with blonde hair, some glasses, and a smaller nose. At that point, I was living in some sort of fraternity cabin with a bunch of other people. The girl had just fixed the antennae on a TV and everyone hailed her as a hero.

That's pretty much where the first dream ends.

The second dream was about Animal Crossing New Leaf. I saw everything from the same perspective that you view the game from, with my own character moving around my own town and stuff. It was dark out and the river was really rushing. I (Or should I say my character? Eh, they're pretty much one and the same) walked past the suspension bridge to the west and saw Peaches walking and somehow she glitched her way into the river, where she went on walking as normal except with the water up to her neck. My character somehow transformed into an angelfish--on land, no less--and then slid over to the river and plopped in to rescue Peaches. By this time, the water was up to her eyes and she turned to me and she said, dialogue box and all, "Bret... Help me..." Then she started drifting away with the flow of the water (which was in the opposite direction as it should've been, now that I think about it) and my angelfish self tried to get around her and push her back, even though I was about one-eighth the size of her. She ended up drifting into this section of the ground that had been cut out in a square, almost as if somebody had removed a house and the ground along with it, and water was rushing into it. Peaches starting swirling around in the middle of the hole, and then she sunk.

The next thing I knew was that I was back in human form, wandering the banks of the river, which was now at an all-time low. Downed trees were slowly drifting along. All of the bridges were gone--washed away, presumably. Normally this would've prevented me from crossing over to the other half of the town at all, but with the water level so low, I discovered there were slopes leading down to the river bottom so I could easily cross anywhere. As I explored the devastation, I saw Queenie walking around on top of one of the banks as if this was just an everyday thing.

Then I went to the recycling shop, Re-Tail, to sell an old ham shank and a red Koopa shell. Gaston was the shopkeeper for some reason. It must have been way after hours (and yet I was still able to enter the store) because he seemed way out of it. When I spoke to him, he went, "No no no no no no no. Not fun. Wish...I was...elsewhere..." Then I gave him the two items I wanted to sell and he rattled them off: "Dried old meat. Ick. Red shell. Better. Some old, aged, piece of meat..." And then he looked at me with a confounded expression and said, "No. Unsanitary! Ill-fit for consumption! Will not process!" Then he went, "However..." and proceeded to open a large cardboard manual that was resting against the counter and he looked at it and went, "Hmm... What do you mean, it can be recycled?" looking at me with a question mark over his head. Nonetheless, he agreed to take the items off my hands.

In return, he gave me an old lamp that he said I could hang outside my door. Changing to a first-person perspective, I was doing that, hanging the lamp outside a wooden door in a dim hallway while I could feel the eyes of the arm-grabbing kid from the previous dream watching me.

And then the radio alarm came on and I woke up.

On the last episode of Falcon6 Dream Puppet Theater:

Locked in a golden tower (well, a yellow tower. Think Prospit) in a purple void there are four people that look like characters from a medieval fantasy. They still have their weapons (and just realized they had them), including a large war hammer (Like Ramona's from Scott Pilgrim but with a design that looks more like Thor) to break out with. They are discussing which wall to break. The tower is occupied by things that look like ghosts of people who are either living or dead, but are not actually ghosts at all. They are scheming or in some sort of battle against someone but it is unknown who or what. They do not accept the fact that they are not ghosts. Outside the cell is a ghost who is sweeping, I believe he was called a 'reagent' but looking up the definition he might not have been.


I think the actual word might have been 'revenant' now that I'm looking back on it.
