Saying that "I have bad dreams" is much like saying "Water is wet".

It's never the conventional horror, either. Oh no, that would be much too simple. No. In them, I am the monster, the fiend, the horror that lurks at the edges of your mind. Carnage. Bloodshed. Death. And worst of all, I enjoy it. Part of me is utterly horrified and disgusted, but the other half revels in the destruction and pain it causes.


To me, knowing that what you are, your very essence, is so...mutable is the most terrifying thing I can imagine.

He had a set of basic instincts that everything else was just extrapolations from, yes. Sex, food, etc.

Back to dreams!

Quote from: Chesterton
For, in order that men should resist injustice, something more is necessary than that they should think injustice unpleasant. They must think injustice absurd; above all, they must think it startling. They must retain the violence of a virgin astonishment. When the pessimist looks at any infamy, it is to him, after all, only a repetition of the infamy of existence. But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.

The nature of my dreams varies greatly, and they seldom make any sort of sense whatsoever. I feel like most of the time, it's just my brain screwing around with different concepts and scenarios because it has nothing better to do.

Allow me to share one from when I was very young, that to this day I can still remember remarkably clearly:

Me and my mother were visiting some friends in a huge fancy house, and I was left alone in a spacious and elegant living room with a big jack-in-the-box while the adults went elsewhere to chat. The jack-in-the-box began to play the traditional tune as the lever slowly turned on its own. The box soon sprung open, revealing a large smiling clown head atop a long metal spring, accompanied by two gloved hands also attached to springs.

I knew immediately that this springy smiling clown head had malicious intentions, and attempted to run away. Unfortunately, I was wearing socks, and the entire room had hardwood flooring, causing me to slip and fall each time I tried to escape. I yelled to the adults, who I could see just outside the room, but they ignored me and walked into a different portion of the house.
The jack-in-the-box picked me up by my arm and began to spin me around at terrifying speeds. However, me being the courageous little bastard I was, I decided to fight back and punch the clown in the face. The clown head shattered, exposing another, smaller version of itself on the inside. Surprised, I proceeded to punch the smaller clown head in the face as well, which again shattered only to reveal an even smaller clown head within. This continued until the clown head was even smaller than my little toddler fist of fury. With one final punch, I shattered the smallest clown head, and watched as another one the size of the original somehow grew out from it. It then let go of me, causing me to fly through the air and slam violently into the wall.

I can't clearly recall what happened after that. I only remember the sense of hopelessness I felt knowing that whatever I did, I could not get away from that sinister toy.

I've had some very interesting dreams. I think I'm sort of weird in that mine usually aren't horribly strange, and when they are they are consistent within themselves.

---

I entered a really dusty apartment, planning to kill an old man while he slept. I didn't know why. I didn't know who this man was. I had a job to do. I didn't think anything of it for the duration of the dream, but I was female. (This is a recurring happening in my dreams, I never notice when I am), and I crept through the apartment that was empty until I made it to the bedroom. My target was sleeping there, so I stabbed him.

If only it were that easy... He actually grabbed my stiletto with his hands when I went for the kill then punched me clear across the room. From where I stuck the knife into him, his shirt was torn but he wasn't bleeding from the cut. He basically chased me all over the apartment with me looking for an opening the whole time, he could just plain overpower me.

I managed to get him after I bated him into a bad swing, tackled him down, and managed to get the stiletto through his heart after using all my strength to do so. I was utterly exhausted. Then I woke up.

---

I'm female in most of my dreams - any that I see myself in it's a consistent look... Any of you guys have something similar to that? Or have an idea why?

EDIT: I don't go around assassinating cyborgs in any dreams other than that one.

I rarely remember my dreams, i often remember small parts of them. However i'm training myself to remember them more often, but let's continue.

All of these things are quite strange...

1. I remember in one dream that i was eating wooden pencils, i cannot remember why but i do remember that i enjoyed it.......

2. In one dream i remember that i went to a big mansion decorated with rich stuff ( Red carpet, big door, butlers etc.) to see it's owner, which was one fat fellow which sat in his royal chair. I went there to buy a carp from him... which was encased in tin foil and newspapers.

3. In another dream, which was particularly strange. I dreamed that i was standing at the edge of a corn field with my aunt ( Which i had recently visited in Real life) and my dad was standing at a small hill near us pointing a double barreled shotgun at us. He said "It's the prophecy" and then started to maniacally laugh.

4. This is one dream that i remember from my childhood which is a nightmare. I was running down a very dark hallway with my best friend towards a light which was at the end of the said hallway/tunnel. we kept hearing whispers and screams coming from behind so that's why we ran, just at the door my buddy trips and the shadows grab him. He quickly tells me "Save yourself!" before he gets dragged into the shadow and nothing could be heard from him.
So obviously i went inside the room which was a poorly lit room with mold over the walls, in the middle there was one of those fireplace chairs and a small wooden table with a lit candle and a book. I immediately closed the door which was a big steel door with a handle closing mechanism, it was rusty and squeaked a lot. Eventually i closed the door and pulled the handle and quickly ran to the chair in the middle looking at the door. You could heard loud bonking on the other side and whispers, eventually it stopped. I sat on the chair and looked at the book which had a strange sign on it. Suddenly you could see shadows coming from under the door, surrounding the whole room and closing in on the middle. Out of panic i opened the book and woke up.

Can't remember much about the dream(s) I had last night, save that at least part of it was incredibly violent and inspired by the 1930s crimewave I've been studying. It was a pretty awesome dream, but that's all I can remember. :-\

It happened again. Like clockwork. Full Moon outside? Werewolf dream.


I am going around, doing something at night. In this case, I think I was just walking around downtown Tacoma. Moon comes out from behind cloud.

Now, I'm going to do my best to describe what happens next. I am not sure if I have the words to describe it, but I will try. First, I just start hurting all over. I get shaky, nauseous. Then, maybe...ten seconds later, then pain kicks itself up to eleven. I can feel my bones moving , my muscles thickening, my skull changing shape. It is excruciating. It is the worst pain I have ever felt. Slowly, agonizingly, the pain is replaced by...something. I guess the best way to describe it would be....a rush? Just this surge of power, it feels so goddamn good I can't even begin to describe it. At this point, I don't even think I'm thinking anymore, just going along by instinct. And you know what instinct is telling me to do? Kill. And so I did. And I loved every minute of it while what little humanity I could still feel was screaming at me to stop.


....kaijyuu, please hold me. I need to go cry.

What if...

...it wasn't a dream? :o

Edit:
were you al capone in it?

were you al capone in your previous life?
Nah, while I don't really remember much, it was some guy robbing a bank, I think. And shooting lots of people. Whilst wearing some kind of brown suit.
I think in some parts of the dream I was the guy, in others I was investigating his crimes or researching him or something.
