@Wren: Wow funny dream! I've had really weird dreams before and usually they end up with me getting seriously hurt or endangered but I wake up and never find out the end...

Same here, but this time it ended...
Really weird how these deep (and in this case sad) stories weave themselves together in my head from random events in my surroundings; albeit the aid of a grilled cheese sandwich made with fancy cheese before I sleep. Still puzzled by it, and at the same time heartbroken and in shock, because as it is with dreams, you're there when it happens and there's not much you can do to steer it the other way.

And The Book Thief was like, a crying party for my mom. I cried too but this was much sadder than The Book Thief.

Most of my "weirdest" dreams ended up being my subconscious trying to pass me notes about my true self: Namely those that involved me being a woman or intersex in the dreams...

I have had another, about the time my stance on LGBT issues started to turn around from being very anti-LGBT to my current tolerant stance:

It was a recurring one, just before I got out of the Navy, where I dreamed that I was leading a Glorious Crusade against Muslims, LGBT individuals, adulterers, fornicators, drunks, drug addicts and anyone else who was "morally deficient". And by "Glorious Crusade", I'm talking Warhammer 40K style: Either converting or purging those who were "corrupt" with FIRE.

At the end of the dream, each time I had it, I had succeeded in carrying out the Purge Of The Unrighteous(tm), and I would ascend to the top of a dias and kneel down to accept my reward: To be anointed by Satan himself as his true champion on earth.

That made me wake up in a cold sweat every time, let me tell you, but it also made me realize that the REAL moral deficiency was HATE and intolerance: God is LOVE, and He loves EVERYONE, regardless of their circumstances, and hate, being the opposite of what God stands for, is of the devil, and should be avoided.

On a more sunny note, another dream I had that was a story like yours, Wren, was what got me to give the Harry Potter series a chance after I spent years avoiding it due to all the hype & controversy surrounding it.

In this dream, I was able to see through all the muggle-repelling charms and other anti-detection spells around Platform 9 and 3/4, and was able to sneak onto the Hogwarts Express and get to Hogwarts, where I immediately set out to find Albus Dumbledore. Once I tracked down the Headmaster, I asked for a meeting where I explained my points on why the Wizarding World should try to integrate with the Muggle world, and that I was most likely the first of what would be many muggles who could counter-act magic and start revealing the existence of the Wizarding world before long anyways.

Needless to say, he was skeptical at first, until I showed him my cell phone, which was still functioning, despite the fact that the high concentration of magical energy tends to make any kind of electronic devices go haywire in and around Hogwarts. I then explained how both wizards & muggles could benefit from increased interaction and combining magic & mundane (i.e. using engineering techniques, combined with enchantments to create cheap, efficient ultra-light aircraft).

In the end, just before I woke up, Dumbledore decided to take my position under consideration, and gave me a list of books to read to further educate me about the magical world, which I began doing. The one that I remember was a history book showing a painting of a battle between American and British wizards during the War of 1812 that used magitek tanks or something similar.

I've been toying with the idea of writing a post-main series fan fic based on this idea, but more fleshed out....

Anyways, they've begun the Easter seasonal event in Final Fantasy XIV, and I've had a lot of fun with it, thus far (not to mention getting two, unique Easter-egg hats and some other stuff out of the deal)....

@Quickblade: Sounds awesome! I would love to actually pilot an airplane.

Also, yesterday I went to pick my pre-ordered copy of LEGO The Hobbit Video Game and was browsing Gamestop when I found HALO 3, HALO 3: ODST, and HALO 4; got them all for under $30 dollars. Score!

The exclusive Bilbo Baggins Minifigure is very awesome and detailed. The exclusive Elrond was still better though IMO.

I haven't had a chance to get the Lego game yet, but be sure to keep the Halo ones. They will be classics forever! A lot of people didn't like ODST, but i thought it was a nice break from the Master Chief flow ... and gave some interesting time to the Shock Troopers.

I don't wake up before I die. I get shot or stabbed and bleed to death while I make peace with my life. Then I sleep like a baby. Those are the good dreams. The rest of them just prod at my social insecurity. Kinda messed up that my good dreams are about dying and my bad dreams are about being alive.

Not to mention ODST's firefight was better than Reach's. Yeah, I was surprised how poorly Halo 4 seems to be doing. I mean the matches never seem to take too long to get into. But I guess whoever was going to get the game got it immediately, and those who wouldn't would rarely be swayed into it.

@Dreams: One of my favorite crazy dreams was of myself stuck in a time loop at some messed up school during an alien invasion. I'm not sure you could call it a school, since the campus was like a whole major city and they seemed to have their own army stocked with UNSC gear. Anyway, it starts off weird, me sitting in the quad with the cast of that Nickelodeon show Zoe 101 nearby, talking about the weird things happening (it was back when that show was still airing). For example, all the fish in the steams running through the campus were all dying fairly rapidly. Well not soon after that aliens come from the sky, invading the planet and all the things evil aliens do. So with this small band of students I had to fight/sneak my way to some safe zone. And after I reached safety I was taken back to a few moments before he alien invasion, but in another location. And that would happen each time I got to safety, I'd have to fight my way through with a new group (except one time), down different paths, with different equipment. One of my favorite times was just me and this one girl (who I can't remember if she was a TV show character of a person from my school), but we found MJOLNIR Mark VI armor (which thankfully didn't kill us). The suits itself actual had what I'll call a "ghost drive" on it that let us turn incorporeal (I hope I'm using that right) and "flash" in some direction, allowing us to avoid danger and go through objects in the way. We ended up fighting aliens standing on the side of a building with the suit's magnetic boots. And another time I got to drive a tank.
The only time I actually didn't have to fight anyone was this one time I found myself in what appeared to be a beach setting inside some underground bunker, in which everything was inspired by DoA Xtreme beach vollyball. I spent the whole time basically on look out, thinking the aliens would get in, but eventually I just jumped back in the time skip when I guess the invasion was over and we were all then "safe".
I want to have the armor part of that dream again.

I know this feeling. I usually don't die, just everything fades or becomes less clear. Basically just like Assassins Creed.

Ultima: I've had similar dreams when I'd been playing too many First-Person Shooters or other military video games: I.e one of the first dreams I had where I spent a significant portion of it as a woman was partially a result of staying up too late reading Ranma 1/2 manga & playing a modded version of DooM: After I'd managed to rid myself of the Nyu Ni Chuan curse via holy water, I got jumped by a bunch of Nazis (it was a Wolfenstein mod), and ended up with me and my brother in a running battle with them in order to keep them from blowing up the capitol with a home-made nuke...

Then there's the ones I had after playing entirely too much Day of Defeat, where I was having to single-handedly hold off endless waves of German infantry with a M-1 Garand, and always running out of ammo...

It wasn't just FPS games that could do trigger this: I had a dream once, after playing too much Age of Empires III, that I was standing on the back porch of my parents' house, looking at the scenery, when a large group of Russian Strelets comes marching over the top of the hill to the side of the house. So what I do is run inside, grab my SKS (kinda ironic, there) and start taking potshots at them as they marched past, and in true AoE III AI fashion, only the ones I actually shot at stopped to return fire... :D

EDIT: I also wanted to mention that my wife found this awesome t-shirt deal: http://www.teefury.com/?sacpn=SARCWDTR& ... d=53661732

You can get either of the shirts (the Grumpy Cat version of Unikitty saying "Nothing is Awesome" or the "1980-Something Space Program" one) for $11 each. She got one of each: Grumpy Unikitty for herself and the red version of the 1980-Something Space Program one for me. :D

@Hikaro that's hilarious. Look at us now, discussing our subconscious adventures...

This is as close as I can get to what the pilot looked like. Tons of erasing and redrawing made it really messy and I didn't give as much detail below the elbows as I should have. also the orgiginal paper is trash now thanks to the idea that coloring it would make it better. I'm not doing another unless I trace off this one, I'm spent. Reasons why I don't draw anymore. I could practice to get better but I like to keep my life simple and I'm kinda mentally lazy these past months. Alright, breathe in, hold it, and then you can barf. They looked a tiny bit more real than anime as well.

he has a tail but it's straight behind his back under his robe to keep warm.
The snowy white female ambassador wasn't too different but her (all white) hair was more kept, she wore a maroon robe that was down to her knees, and her stature was like a REAL woman, not these porno thinguses with torsos as skinny as a mailbox and with four assets each as big as the top part of a gumball machine. Don't laugh, that's sicko and disgusting. Also they didn't have anything between them, because she was aristocracy/royal, and he was just a pilot in the Space Navy. Of course he was courteous because chivalry isn't dead everywhere, and she was impressed by his skills in flying across the galaxy, but they aren't animals. :D


As I said before they were seeking meeting with the UN, but they landed in the Rocky Mountains pretty darn close to NORAD's base :9 . They didn't get far on foot before they were captured and detained. They had a message recorded and sent to the President requesting release and aid in travel to the UN, but it leaked to operatives in the government who also worked for industries that would be destroyed thanks to the alien technology mentioned (let's not name names |D ), who then pulled strings to change the report to look like hostile aliens (matching the green antennae stereotype) had landed and the video was never actually received. days after orders were sent back to NORAD 8B to kill the aliens and then destroy the remains. At hearing this over the radio (at the time they were a few miles out from the complex standing beside a snow crawler), they each ran in different directions. The pilot received a shot to the back and died slowly, while the Ambassador escaped fire but was killed not too many days later. Their death triggered a signal from their health monitor (wrist) and their home planet sends an armada through the galaxy again. I don't remember how I got the info about what happened after their death, but I do remember not finding out what happened next other than ships appeared in the sky. If this was a story or perhaps a damn good movie (stereotyped because of the use of CGI, ends up in the ludacris "family" section), more time would be spent on the events before their landing.
Because I was in a sense there, helplessly watching, I still feel sad and traumatized.

EDIT: Did you know that the livestock industry whined to the government and got them to kill over 200 wolves in Montana, when wolves only caused 0.8% percent of livestock deaths, foxes caused 0.5%, but coyotes caused 22%, domestic dogs caused 5% and the rest is natural or caused by man? The price tag for wolf carcases is higher than any other, and it's STILL going up? Honestly I'm sick that my Dad works for Fish and Wildlife even though he works with ducks, because they're supposed to protect all nature and now they're shooting wolves; they even took them of the endangered species list. Just read that all today, and it's true. To any big cattle rancher who thinks I'm sick for loving wolves, build yourself a better fence bucko, the elvish wolf men are coming for you savages. Oh dear, there I went. Yes I still eat meat.

@Wren: Rule number one of politics. Don't talk about politics. Just a heads up. I do agree with the wolf thing. That pisses me off. At least in developed nations. In the Himalayas the wolves slaughter livestock without even eating it, so that's understandable. Wolves are actually a big issue in my state, but they shouldn't be. My family knows a lot of people that raise animals and complain about wolves, but when asked if any of the their livestock have been killed they say no. Not only that, but most of them admit to never seeing a wolf in their life.
