WUWU

It was the post apocalyptic young adult novel setting........

In this world, the remnants of society train teenagers to risk their lives searching for clues about the past. Those who discover the most relics and solve the most puzzles are the highest ranking members...

Then, at the end of each year, there's a big party and the top ranked 4 girls and 4 boys are chosen to lead an expedition.... including me, timu, who is the best, who far exceeds the abilities of the other 7 people, due to me being fucking amazing and the most accomplished mage ever!

Just as the party is ending, some invaders attack! amidst the chaos of the party and their surprise infiltration, both sides sustain heavy losses and many of our favorite characters perish in the battle! Fortunately, i cast a spell that both reverses time and also completely destroys the attackers before they even show up.

The chosen eight get ready to leave but a separate problem has arrived.... as we are preparing to board the subway (where i had cast the time spell), distortions from the alternate timeline are disrupting people's movements, causing people to be warped back and forth between where they were in the other timeline and where they are currently, due to our proximity with where i cast the time spell.

I have to singlehandedly use my powers to pull people out of harms way and onto the subway and also push these weird cars that someone left on the subway tracks out of the way so the subway could get moving.

Finally with the effects of the time distortion defeated, and everyone safe on the subway, the expedition can begin!

it is a long journey. Along the way we learn some backstory about my family. My older brother, Blight, was sent on one of the previous expeditions. He was no where near as cool as me, but he was still pretty powerful back in the day. However, he ended up being outranked at the end of that expedition by some other guy. Out of jealousy and rage, Blight became evil, and settled in the faraway land. Ever since, none of the expeditions we sent ever came back.

As the subway travels the 8000 mile journey over, i realize that there is a bug. Not just a like, insect creepy crawly bug, but it is also SPYING ON US! It discovers that it has been discovered and enrages, becoming large and threatening to consume all of us! Fortunately i am very strong and i force it to instead consume an entire city instead. it dies. THe bug as a big monster is kinda like a big walnut with spider legs coming out, and i put the city inside the walnut shell and it kind of walnut crushed it.

Wait! Where did the city come from! It's full of people! Turns out there is still a thriving society of life (besides the one full of only teenagers) and its a bustle of activity! I immediately offer my services to help people, by teleporting them to wherever they want. Unfrotunately some of them don't speak english very well and i teleport some of them to the wrong place. Oh well. THey'll be fine. I also notice that the subway station we stopped at is in a kind of inconvenient location, so i place a Magic Waypoint Totem that people can teleport to at will, so they can access the subway station more easily. However i make a goof, the totem is too close to a pole (that people hang on to so they don't fall when the train is in motion) so people are teleporting in and getting stuck in the pole. The subway boss immediately fires me. I fix the problem but i'm still fired :(

I brought my cat but she's a bit of a hassle to watch over so i bring her to this house of this lady who i met. I enchant all the doors and windows so my cat can't get out, and also as a side effect, no outside magic can penetrate the house. Outside i see this guy who wants to be let in. Apparently its the lady's husband but.... he's clearly disguised. It's my brother! Blight! I easily defeat him in magical combat.

I leave to go investigate why this bustling society has existed all this time and none of the other expeditions of the past (before Blight stopped them all from coming back) ever mentioned this city. Meanwhile on the internet, the lady complains on the internet about how i beat up her husband. Turns out blight is actually her husband, and she let him back inside the house. which means my cat got out. dang it.

I had a dream about a little girl who was the heir to the throne of all Ireland. Her father, the king, had been killed and replaced by an imposter, so I (I was either voice in her head or her older cousin, don't remember which, maybe both) told her to find her father. She would know him when she saw him, and know what to do afterwards. (I couldn't tell her directly that her father was dead because her mother was in on the plot and would kill me and her if she heard.)

I led her to her father's corpse, and she knew immediately that the living "father" was an imposter and this one was real. That's what I meant by she would know when she saw him. Now that she had seen her dead father, his ghost could talk to her. He told her to flee to England. That's what I meant by she would know want to do once she saw him.

She went to England, and met the heir of the English throne, who was another girl only a year or two older. They became close friends very quickly, and the Irish girl developed a massive crush on the English one. They eventually got married, and became the two Queens of England and Ireland.

I doubt this was at all historically accurate for any time period.

I had a dream about a cartoon skit called "BBC Ondish". It was a news story about another news channel that was entirely in gibberish (it sounded like a cross between how Korean sounds to nonspeakers and the lego-speak in old lego games). There was a section about Ondish video games. The games were called "Fergus", "Gergus", "Um Cow" (which had a picture of a cow on it), and "Twenty 2018" (which had yet to be released).

At this point, the english-speaking reporters paused the video and said "We asked the Ondish reporters why Um Cow and Twenty 2018 had English names instead of Ondish ones. They started crying morosely and crossed out 2018 and replaced it with 2019, before hurriedly pushing the display offscreen."

I woke myself up by laughing too hard.

Some people have that tip (LifeHack™) where you have to do something complicated or physical to shut off your alarm so that it wakes you up. Well, my noggin has a perfect way to circumvent that: just dream those steps got accomplished!

This is like 1/36th of the dream but it was the only thing that i have the clearest memory of, but i was in a huge get together with friends and family in a weird abandoned building where the water sprinklers keep on breaking and one of my friends that i never saw was a computer man without a head.
The long tables had a heckton of food, mostly strange deserts, a huge bowl of really finely minced fruit salad and a vegetable salad that looked exactly the same. Everyone was taking everything and i was too busy fucking with the water sprinkler system to notice, came back to like only half a bowl of weird fruit salad and a singular green biscuit. I was like "well better than nothin" and took a seat with the other kids. Didn't even touch my food before an old lady just hobbled up to me, in long black robes obscuring everything, and just whispered
"lil' bitch"
before limping off again while my mother chastisises me for being surprised. Im so conflicted right now

I was playing with a stick in my great aunt's garden and a cop lady came up to me in her motorcycle and said "whats that" and i replied with "my member!!!!!!" Which i thought was the most fucking amazing work of humourous art ever made in the history of mankind itself, a dick joke that didnt even make sense when i woke up and thought about it.
She was like "haha nice one champ, wheres your mom"
And i pointed her to the front door and when she walked in front of me i hit her in the back of the head witb a stick and now i cant believe that the last thing this poor lady heard before she fuckin died was a dick joke.
im mad wheres my refund

I had a dream about this site. One in which there was an imposter. Someone with my username, and he was going all "BEEFY MUSCLES" and everyone was like haha, thats so you, and I was trying to get everyone to convince that wasn't me even though it should be a little obvious. I woke up, and I started trying to think of ways to convince you I am me. Like, in the movies, a secret that only I would know. Couldn't think of one. Don't think any of you know anything about me IRL that I didn't mention offhand on this forum, and vice versa. I hope PMs will work. Secret Santa stuff maybe.

I may have posted about that dream before, let me check.

e: okay i've dreamt about ET before but not this exact same thing. huh.

as an aside, i was reading through some of my old dream posts. they make no sense to me now. i only remember some snippets. i would recommend doing this.

Had a super super good dream that I really wanted to write down after I woke up. "Can't forget this one", I dream-thought to myself as I was having the dream. Then, right after that one, I had another unrelated dream (two dreams in a row!) about me playing Super Mario Galaxy. That second dream was the only one I could remember when I finally woke up...

Oh boy do I have a dream for you. A friend suggested I post this here from a discord server, which is why it's typed so casually.

I was up at my cousin's place in Boston and we were kind of meandering around the town. There was one place we went to that was like a petshop and it was rly neat I got to play with some sugar gliders and pet some kitties and puppies, and there was a waffle maker too? And at one point we go to the train station except i keep like, winding up on the train tracks and there's like 6 sets and trains are coming and going constantly so I gotta dodge the trains so I don't get run over. And also Thomas the train was one of those trains? And i was like 'haha this is weird' and i took a selfie with thomas to send to my friends. Later on we go to that cool animal place that's up there and for some reason i have some christmas lights wrapped around me and also there's an emu just... hangin' out loose walkin' around like a regular pet except this is an emu. and it kind of gets tangled in the christmas lights that are around me and it gets pissed about this and it starts attacking the shit out of me and I wind up with like a big ol bruise gash from like, just under my armpit all the way across my stomach to the opposite hip it hurts like a bitch and i was terrified of the emu for the rest of the dream and my dad just kinda laughed at me bc he got to pet the emu but it attacked me.
So it gets to a point in the dream where i'm back at my cousin's house, there's a bit where we go grocery shopping, but then all of a sudden i'm somewhere else? like an old house and all of a sudden i'm basically in the movie A Quiet Place which is spooky as shit bc if u make a single sound these aliens are gonna come eat you. so i was just trying to avoid being eaten by these aliens except it was more like i was watching a movie and less like i was in it bc i kept looking away when bad things were gonna happen and going 'ohhh why did i rewatch this movie'. also the aliens were a little bit different bc they had like,, these creepy lil fingerhand things instead of legs so they would just creep around like that and wouldn't rly make a sound bc they were quiet it was freaky
And then there was a bit where like, there was some natural disaster event going on or something except it was just this one lady who was controlling it and also the aliens and like, she was recruiting kids to work with her and it was some high-tech mission thingamajig and i wound up working with her (i was only like 15 at this point apparently) and so she'd send out kids in teams of 2 to go recruit other kids and bring them back to work for her and idek what she was trying to do in the end but it was kinda neat? and since she could control everything there was one place where there was a stupid amount of lava and she's like 'ok go in the lava there's some kids hiding in there' and i was like 'are you crazy that's lava' and she makes the lava like, envelop us but we don't get hurt bc she's making some kind of weird bubble so that we dont get smothered by the lava so we're like walking thru it and we get to the kids and we're like 'hey kids come join us we have a cool thing goin' on' except one of the kids gets so scared that he's now surrounded by lava that he pees his pants and for some reason that makes the powers stop working? bc we're like wading through not-hot lava at this point idk it was weird so the lava bubble comes crashing down and we all start suffocating but then it blacks out and we're all ok and that was just a training simulation apparently. and we're wearing these cool hi-tech outfits or w/e so we go to get changed and i start like, undressing and the dude i'm with is like 'ew gross don't do that here' bc in my dream apparently i had tits even tho that hasn't happened before so thanks dream (sarcasm, i dislilke having tits can u tell) but i'm just like 'nah you know i can't go to the other room and do it' and after that it isn't an issue. so all the cadets gather around to eat and we're talking about stuff and i show them my cool emu scar (which is still kinda bruised and nasty bc apparently not enough time has passed) and then i wake up

Two dreams this week revisiting my recurring dream-spots

One was a big facility/factory that was a hell-analogue, instructions telling people where to go and misreading them and getting off at the wrong floor on a flight of stairs or walking through the fifth doorway on the left instead of the right promised an eternity of unending suffering. Following all the instructions would mean you could keep moving, defer being chewed up by the machine but really, the fear and anxiety as you're growing mentally exhausted and struggling to remember all the rules and instructions is just a different kind of punishment

The second was arriving at a bay large but narrow with carloads of friends and the kind of people I'm fine talking to one-on-one but hate interacting with at parties, a couple coves clockwise (walkable at low tide) takes you to a dilapidated shack that might've been a bar, or a hotel with a layout mimicking a boat
and we spend the night in pleasant-enough ambiance until a band with no business setting up a show in the middle of fuckwhere comes on board and puts on one of the best gigs I've ever been to, (I think they were playing covers this time but it was still banger after banger)

then a speedboat swings by to get us all back to our cars cuz the tide's come in and the points between coves are impassable but it roars off in the wrong direction past floating crowds that shouldn't be out this time of night, and I can't tell if they're yelling at our boat making waves or they're asking for help but I wish they weren't there

In the morning, we've gotta drive home again but I don't know which way's north and there's an active volcano nearby that might mean we have to detour

19 days ago I had a dream where I decided to throw out 16 broken and empty chicken eggshells by flushing them down a toilet but once I peed on the eggs, suddenly inside of the eggshells were baby turtles and then when I clicked flush, the water was a mix of orange juice and beer coloured orange and that part unsettles me more than the other parts of the dream, was the water like a gross cumulative byproduct of someone (possibly dream me) peeing dehydrated whizz for so long that it became yellow-orange. It was gross and weird but the turtles in the eggshells part seemed cool, fruity and magical.

Not sure if I've particularly been having weird dreams lately, but what I most notice is, I guess, repetition?

I feel like there are places in dreams I repeatedly go, that show up again and again. They even feel comforting and familiar sometimes.

They've changed through the years, I guess. The two I most remember from being younger are subways, so many subways, and a sort of altered version of my backyard. I would go out behind this old stone barbecue, and the trees behind it would be more like an actual forest, and I would find a stone circle. I went to this place repeatedly.

I don't think I've been to my childhood place recently but subways still show up very often. I think there was a newer dream place I've been going to more often lately but I can't remember it now.

Sometimes this stuff reminds me of real life places too. Hidden spots in the woods seem particularly desirable and evoke a kind of deja vu. A place I found in Pennsylvania a month or two ago, a sort of "summit" of rocks with trees growing on them, with a view of surrounding forest and human stuff but still hidden and not having a path to it. Seemed very dreamlike.

I have recurring dreams where I climb up a tree in my backyard and over a fence into what's supposed to be a neighbor's yard, and swing, run, and/or fly through an endless expanse of trees interspersed with suburbs.

I really like the idea of an "in-between place", of all the little forested areas and overgrown gardens behind houses. It's like the faerie realm.

RE: "Seriously brain, what the hell?" A Thread For Weird Dreams and Nightmares
I had a dream that literally combined every horror game fandom I have ever heard of.

So, I was in this giant building. There were surrealistic paintings, that pulsed and moved. You had to complete every puzzle in the room before going up the stairs to the next room.

The first puzzles I can’t remember, but what I do remember is waking up expecting to be impaled. I drifted back to sleep, and the dream resumed.

I had moved to the second floor, which was black with drew-in eyes on it. This was a reference to Eyes: The Horror Game, which I had only ever seen once, in a livestream. The first puzzle on that floor was a maze, with 10 sections. At the 9th, it turned into a race through a maze, with an old lady who introduced us to her “puppet”, which was the marionette from FNAF. For some reason Yuri, Natsuki and Sayori were there. Monika wasn’t, which was actually quite suspicious, and it was in the style of Baldi’s Basics. If we saw the puppet, for some reason we slowed down? So that could have been a Slenderman reference? Or it could have been some sort of hypnosis-type thing. Sayori was first to go, then Yuri because Natsuki is best girl. And then I WOKE UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOST SUSPENCEFUL MOMENT. Pretty sure there was some BATIM in there. Is this my brain punishing me for being too into horror games? Because it can carry on doing so at this rate, it was cool.

maybe it's one of those meme dreams where every time you see a puppet, the dreams slows down by 10%.
