Post-apocalyptic Occupy-style communial survival settlement headed by the dude from the Moth with the greasy ponytail on one end selling used clothes for a buck each and the Con Bard on the other end selling smelted metals, look out for the radioactive materials that might get deposited over there, keep your tiny kid away from that space. He'll be sent back in time with the monkey with boxer gloves soon. So don't poison him.

"we in the future have time-vortex captured the full playable cast of FF7 plus a random smattering of celebrities! Let's plurk whatever they say once every ten minutes and analyze it for coherence."

The boat that I was in kept skidding over bits of coast, oops, locals in hot pursuit. Then we accidentally drove it over a cliff. The screen went dark and faded back in on a white van being driven back to base. At least we stopped to pick up a good-sized lunchbox.

A deep dark lagoon indoors, craggy rock running up to smooth tile encasing it all, two arced points of black glassy rock formation not quite meeting, the greenish water between them swirling almost black. A warp point. Not enough for a Gate. Good.

(This companion was almost Saria in aspect, slight and broody and sharing no information but useful in most contexts - from the back row. Ze sat crouched on the rocks after the I-protagonist had gone to bed, calculating. Hir inner monologue appeared in text, and I dream-read it.)

「 ... Robo was fighting to try to reconstruct a past that never was, while Ayla was working too hard to create a future she'd never see the full range of.


only, out of the Nine who would become the Yggdrasil.

It'd have to do. 」

I was walking rapidly down Mercer Street, trying to hold in my tears.

One of the itinerant graphic designers, all folded up against a building with her Mac on her knees and a ratty sweater tied around her shoulders, noticed I was in distress and called out, hey, do YOU know how to deal with the new Final Cut? (Because that must be why I was upset, right, because I'd been wrestling with software.)

I looked at her and almost, almost lost it. But then I faced forward, sped up and moved on.

I don't remember why I was so upset. Just that walking fast helped.

Dreams are weird.

I dreamed Lady Gaga made her own version of Sleep No More. Only she was singing Janelle Monae.

Do want.

Dreamed about the squirrel zombie plague again. Only this time the girl fleeing the horrible bites and resulting brainless and ultimately terribly self-destructive nonstop madcap antics was Lisbeth Salander - way to change the tone, brain. She was received at Customs in in some country or other full of Hasidic Jews, and the customs officer was a merging of me, a kindly old man, and [ profile] tmartian42. We/he let her in even though she had a wee bite on her ass; one lanky boy with a twinkle in his eye who looked like the Gourmet man from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy told her to soak it in epsom salts and it worked.So we/he snuck her our passport and she signed in, and took one look at the dorms and instead went to rent a room. She was in said room the next morning listening to voicemail from the first three psychiatrists in the phone book rejecting her appealing voicemail she'd left the last night. One denied any such squirrel zombie plague, one was offended at her tone, and one named Absalom said his was a 'family practice' but he didn't wish to reject her out of hand.

She's not too proud not to go to him, but sh'ell grumble about it all the way.

Who knew raptors were that easy to grab and flip over and rub their nose in the dirt?

The T-Rex, though, that one gave us pause. ( Goofy: "How many tons, Jim?" Jim: "Sixty-seven." Someone: " sigh Goofy." Goofy: *innocent* "I wanted to know!" )

but we didn't have Donald. Or Sora. It was a motlier crew than many. I don't remember who else was there. I just remember the rolling hills and perchable peaks and the thuds of the earth under its footsteps.

That was an epic Halloween dream. There were final battles and touching personal showdowns and bitchin' heroines. The outdoor gothic-lolita dance party in the middle of the labyrinth was a hell of a scene, and the staid, stout lady police officer who took me for a beer in that dim, unassuming little tavern built into the curve of the stone erosion wall was a good reliable character. I liked the way the skies were a constant shade of slate and that affected the light and color scheme of the whole production.

I swear the main hero of the school looked like Serenity Rose - if she were made of blobby clay - and was named Carrie Kelley. And I emjoyed the little scene with Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas and her accidental zombie-fighting prowess, even if getting them both in the throat with her Harry Potter-style wand flickswish was kind of gory. And the bit with Smallville!Clark rallying everybody against the oncoming demonic horde was just fun and silly.

... It's May, self. Mayyyyyyyy.

Did you know lamias can breathe in space? )

Dixie? Maybe. I do know the main protagonists in this were both me, one male one female, and I was dreaming from the perspective of the male one. There's a weird one for you, in retrospect. Seemed perfectly normal at the time. He built links across the media, so they got lots of good factory anyhow.

I dreamed I was Bruce Wayne and I'd just told my girlfriend, Lois Lane, that I was Batman. Well, not told-told, but spoken publically in a way that would allow her and only her to draw the right conclusions.

In this fancy-schmancy hotel with an anime convention on the first floor and us swankheads up in the upper four, and there was trouble what needed Batman, only somebody else had stole his suit, and he showed up in a giant frog suit a la Super Mario 3 and solved the case in front of the whole formal fancy dinner all badass. And the guy in his suit got a You're In My Suit >B| and got the shit scared out of him.

Though you know if I were really Batman I woulda probably realized in retrospect that somebody was trying to kill Bruce Wayne and Lois Lane, what how when we were all walking through the hotel in wild giddy love as I told her all about this time and that time and what really happened, going along a catwalk above the center of the hotel with the con buzzing 20 floors below, and we put a hand on the railing and KACLANG, twenty feet of steel railing swings right out. Woops. But no! We just hailed the hotel manager who was repairing the railing down the way, and told him to come do this one too.

I woke up when my throat started swelling up and I started spitting out sticky pink stuff the consistency of old bubblegum. Still didn't think I had been poisoned or anything. And Lois was just looking at me with a quirked smile like 'what are you pulling now'.

Thanks, brain.

ps: Christian Bale and Lois from Smallville, just to be clear. There are worse dream-identities to be killed in.

Had a good dream.

Oddly enough [ profile] marikoshikibu was in it. I trusted her with some things.

Lots of people were there though. It was just about a lot of people having relatively quiet and quite lovely fun. In that room it was game systems and dvd players and it was... my birthday or something? I left and trusted all the equipment and stuff to M and then I was stopped by someone else... high up in the social hierarchy, someone respected.

They gave me balloons. Like. a LOT of them, attached to a good solid handhold/paperweight. My weight was considerably less. It was disorienting and fun.

Everyone was grinning and happy.

Went out to the high-ceilinged hall and took long, bouncing steps. Broke into 'Let's Go Fly A Kite.' Was joined in by a guy leaning outside the pastry-making room. Projectile pastry making. It looked pretty cool to watch.

Did I just have a dream that combined 007: Casino Royale with Nanoha?

Wow. I fell asleep at around 4-5pm because I literally couldn't keep my eyes open, and woke up at around 11. Wtf, sleep schedule. I wasn't planning to go so long but there was this dream... damn, can't remember it. Just remember that I was having it, and it was really vivid, and I kept floating to the edge of consciousness and thinking to myself 'nooo, I want to see the end of this!' and deliberately sinking myself back in.

I guess it's true that recording your dreams makes you more aware of them, and gives you more control.

Thunderstorms tonight. Rumble rumble.

Dream of the day. )

MD State Senator Nancy Jacobs: Mr. Raskin, my Bible says marriage is only between a man and a woman. What do you have to say about that?

Law professor Jamie Raskin, testifying: Senator, when you took your oath of office, you placed your hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution. You did not place your hand on the Constitution and swear to uphold the Bible.

Ever dream about a dream you had before?

Ever dream that you set up and took down the dream, at the beginning and end of it?

Casual shoes sliding all in a line across the dirt, burrowing (dipping?) under and coming back up, one by one all following the leader. A forest? Too much light for a forest but there were trees. Trunks anyway, viewpoint too close to the ground. Felt like a backyardy type place, but the trees were more plentiful and closer together than that. In fact, they were close enough together that unless they were completely bare there shouldn't have been that much light cast on the shoes. Which were going along all by themselves on their merry way.

What the HELL, brain.

I was squeezing... SOMETHING, in my right hand held over my left shoulder don't know what it was but something that WASN'T BEES and then it turned into LIQUID BEES and AHHHH WTF.

*edit: I remembered. Seeing the flowers on the table triggered it; it was a rose. A pale yellow rose, I picked up the flower part in my hand and squeezed it because I wanted to feel what it felt like (y'know, roses, always so slightly squishy) and then it turned into BEES.

Yeah, hi, brain. Good morning to you too. WTF.
