Proof again that I have the WEIRDEST dreams [May. 27th, 2011|11:33 am]
Zoethe
I was the warrior hero in a very pink-and-fluffy magical candy world. (Imagine everything about My Little Pony and Flower Fairies and kind of triple that. With candy.) And The Creature Who Lived Underground had proclaimed that, if he was not stopped by 11pm he would change everything about our world (insert "MWAHAHA" here) at midnight. So I was dispatched to deal with said creature.

Many adventures, much derring-do, cut to:

I'm struggling out of the cave opening, the head fairies and ponies are anxiously awaiting me. "I killed him," I say.

"But not in time."

So we wait, terrified, to see what happens at midnight. And at midnight, nozzles appear, hanging down from the sky, and...

drop tiny, colorful candies daintily onto the existing creatures and sweets, making them all even more wonderful.

And I stand there, realizing that I've slain a creature whose "change to the world" was not a monstrosity but a present.

...

I felt really bad!!

And yet poetic.

It was a ridiculously pink and pastel world. It's hard to think of it as actually poetic!

Me thinks...

There are some scary sounding changes comming up that may be for the better good and your subconscious is having issues understanding.

Re: Me thinks...

Could be. Sometimes I just have weird dreams, though.

I'll leave it to others to try to interpret this one, but I am mainly impressed by the length and quality of the narrative. My dreams (or the bits I remember) tend to be very compressed in time, possibly with an understood back-story. Yours read like a movie script.

My dreams are often like entire movies. Sometimes there are even soundtracks.

I had a dream like that once, years ago. When I woke up, I could have written a screenplay, down to camera angles.

All I remember now is the last shot: the protagonists sitting at a diner, overhead shot pans out and rotates slightly as we fade to black and credits.

Sounds like you have your NaNoWriMo plot for this year all sewn up!

My Little Pony may no longer be an appropriate reference for 'pink-and-fluffy magical candy world'. The newest version's got plenty of manticores and hydras and cockatrices and giant sky-bears.

My Little Pony actually was kinda badass right from the beginning. Demons and shit. This guy looks at the original series episode by episode. Not unlike Dungeons and Dragons.

Oh, and your dream was pretty cool. It even had a moral! Change is not always bad.

I never watched it, nor let my kids watch commercial TV at that time, so this is definitely news to me.

I do like your warrior hero character in your dreams. Bummer that that quest didn't work out so well :P

I don't record most of my crazy dreams, so two so close together were kind of unusual. But I couldn't resist the surprise ending of this one.
